tv   CNN Newsroom With Carol Costello  CNN  July 15, 2015 7:00am-8:01am PDT

7:00 am
call and upgrade to get x1 today. ♪ happening now in the "newsroom," now you see them, now you don't. >> it makes the government look dumb. >> inside the cell of notorious druglord el chapo moments before he escaped through this tunnel complete with a motorcycle. >> it's leaving so many people here wondering who is helping chapo escape. and trump on top? he's tied for the lead in a new national poll. >> i want to save the country. our country's going to hell. plus he killed 12 people in that massive movie theater massacre.
7:01 am
but should shooter james holmes die? >> he's not guilty by reason of insanity. >> sane sane sane guilty. >> attorneys make their case. but what will jurors decide? let's talk live in the "cnn newsroom." and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. caught in the act, new surveillance video capturing the moment one of the most notorious druglords breaks free from prison. you'll see joaquin "el chapo" guzman there eventually get off the bed and walk to the shower. you see him there. and then he disappears from view. and i believe he comes back and he changes his shoe. but once he goes back to the shower he disappears for good despite being caught on camera. el chapo is still on the loose. authorities say he used this
7:02 am
mile-long tunnel equipped with a motorcycle to escape. a law enforcement source telling cnn, federal agents warned mexico about a possible escape plan. mexico denies those claims. let's bring in cnn's polo sandoval. he's in mexico where that brazen escape took place. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this information coming from the mexican government overnight. the images released showing the exact moment of joaquin "el chapo" guzman's escape. this is a critical piece of evidence. it shows the escape moment itself but it's technically the last time he was captured on camera. this is what he could potentially look like well into this week and several days after the escape. what we can tell you this video shows where he appears to be pacing back and forth after standing up on his bed in his cell. he then walks towards a shower area where it was later
7:03 am
determined it's a blind spot of the surveillance camera. he ducks out of sight and never emerges again. so seconds later that's when officials determine he was missing. he dug out of view and into this custom-made tunnel if you will that stretched from the prisonen itself to that partially built home about a mile out from the location. carol? >> and this druglord has many ties ft. united statesto the united states including his wife. tell us about that. >> reporter: she's described as a beauty queen, a u.s. citizen raised in mexico a family with ties to several drug organizations. we know that guzman and this young lady actually married in 2007. he was in his 50s. she was 18. they got married in mexico. then she went to the united states maybe to california to give birth to two daughters and we know that she in one way or another, directly or indirectly
7:04 am
has led authorities to her husband. we are told by law enforcement officials here on the u.s. side of the border that when guzman was captured in 2014 last year that was because they were actually able to trace this woman's cell phone, his wife's cell phone. so we do know that she is likely now in mexico. authorities are trying to track her down to see if she could potentially provide any sort of information, whether intentionally or unintentionally that may lead authorities to this most wanted man. >> interesting. polo sandoval, thanks so much. let's talk more about this with steve dudley. he's a senior fellow at american university center for latin american and latino studies. thanks for being with us. i appreciate it. >> thanks carol. >> the united states has offered to help find this guy. but so far mexican authorities have turned down the u.s. why do you think that is? >> this is a very prideful country. this is a country that thinks of
7:05 am
itself as if not on a par certainly rising in the world's view. it's certainly a position that the president himself took at the beginning of his presidency spent the first year and a half talking about mexico on the rise mexico being able to sort of put crime and organized crime in particular behind it and the violence behind it. so it's not surprising that at least publicly they would say that they're not going to take the united states' assistance. >> should they take any help they can, though? this is a dangerous man and frankly it's embarrassing for mexico. wouldn't they need all the help they can in capturing this guy? >> yeah, i think they are taking help. i think -- there's the public side of any administration. there's the private side of an administration. and i think they realize that the manhunt for chapo before
7:06 am
involved foreign governments, in particular the united states. and i think they'll take help again. >> transparency international has a scale that ranks countries based on corruption. i want to put that up on the screen with zero being highly corrupt and 100 being very clean. mexico has a score of 35. you see the united states on there for comparison. hopefully we'll put up that graphic. so with so much corruption in mexico how do you even begin to fix the problems there? >> i think you take incremental steps. you can't do these sorts of things overnight. and obviously when you're dealing with someone who has brought in the amount of money that chapo has brought in you're dealing with someone with the incredible power to corrupt. and that power to corrupt was evident in his escape. as has been pointed out over and over. the reality is that he does not get out of that prison unless he
7:07 am
has some sort of high-level collusion. this is a prison with 750 cameras. this is a prison with all kinds of sounds sensors. and the most sophisticated equipment that you could expect from any prison, yet he got out. got out through the means that he uses throughout his career, tunnels. so this comes from corruption. this comes from the incredible power that comes from the amount of money that he has accumulated in his criminal career. >> where do you think he went? >> oh, boy. it's a very funny question, of course. if you go on twitter, you'll get all kinds of theories about where he went and why he went there, including to perhaps to chase down the nemesis of the day, donald trump. so there's no real -- there's no
7:08 am
safer place for a guy like this than in mexico. it is where he has his infrastructure. it is where he has his contacts obviously because he escaped from maximum security prison with 750 cameras on him. and so it would be very surprising if he made his way to another country. having said that there have been pretty steady realm of reports over the years that his ability to set up shop in other countries such as honduras and guatemala so perhaps you'll see him or will find him in a neighboring country. he was first captured in a neighboring country back in 1993. i think he'll stay in the general territory most likely in mexico. but of course anybody's guess at this stage. >> unfair question but i just wanted to pick your brain. steven dudley thank you for joining me. >> you're welcome. to a terror suspect's devotion to isis. in his own words, this is the fbi's interrogation of 23-year-old alexander ciccolo.
7:09 am
you're about to hear some of it for yourself. ciccolo is accused of plotting an attack on a college campus and planning to slaughter students live on the internet. he's the son of a boston police captain. a law enforcement source tells cnn it was the father who first alerted authorities. cnn's alexandra field is here with more on the story. >> this 23-year-old man from massachusetts is now being held without bail on these terrorism-related charges. investigators say he was inspired by isis that he was taking active steps to plot plan and carry out an attack. they had the opportunity to interview him and ask him, what about isis did in fact inspire him. here's how he described it. >> isis this isil that, all these things. what is your take on that? what do you feel about the group that calls themselves isis or isil?
7:10 am
good thing. >> what part of what they're doing is good? what is -- this is education for u too. so what is their ultimate goal? what are they doing? what's good? >> implementing the sharia, freeing people from oppression. wherever they go they're changing things and finally establishing khalifa. >> court documents show that alexander ciccolo had a history of mental illness.
7:11 am
investigators had been watching him for some time monitoring his conversations on social media, also actively listening to his conversations in which he was plotting this attack. they finally intercepted those on july 4th after he received four firearms. then they went in did their searches they turned up molotov cocktails he was assembling he had two machetes and that he had purchased a pressure cooker. and you'll see he makes a lot of references to the boston marathon bombing and being inspired by the pressure cookers used in those attacks. still to come a nuclear deal is in place but not everyone is thrilled. why getting it past congress could be complicated.

7:16 am
just a few hours from now, president obama ratchets up his sales campaign to rally support for the new nuclear deal with iran. he'll field reporters' questions at a white house news conference. his goal? tamping down public doubts and the partisan plans to kill it before it goes to congress. michelle kosinski is live at the white house with more on this. good morning. >> reporter: hi, carol. we'll hear from president obama and this time he's taking questions. we expect him to hit the points he hit yesterday when he was announcing the completion of the deal. now he's going to face tough questions from members of the white house press corps. no sitdown interviews with bloggers or people who aren't intimately connected with this issue. he's faced so much criticism already. much of it expected because we've been hearing from republicans who are opposed to the deal once we saw that framework a few months ago. that's been ongoing.
7:17 am
but once the deal was announced, it let loose, the floodgates were open. some republicans calling this deal things like dangerous, naive naive, wrong, a mistake, saying president obama abandoned the original goals of the deal. and the white house has been ready with a response to all these criticisms. senator tom cotton penned that letter to iranian leaders a couple of months ago signed by 47 senators saying that basically congress was going to be the one doing the deciding. listen. >> i've reviewed the entire deal and unfortunately it's not as bad as i had feared. it's actually much worse. but first before we get to the details, we have to remember who we're dealing with. iran is an anti-american terror-sponsoring regime with hundreds of soldier's lives on their hand. this deal puts them on the path to that capacity.
7:18 am
in the coming months or years that they violate the deal or even in eight to ten years if they keep the deal. >> >>. >> reporter: and the president faced some tough questions from a "new york times" reporter yesterday. you have the u.s. and five other countries sitting down with iran. why not use that powerful leverage of sanctions to get them to dismantle their nuclear capability altogether? but the president countered by saying that's misguided criticism because that was never going to happen saying it's unrealistic to think over the course of decades iran was going to be left with no capability to generate energy from nuclear power, for example. so the white house is going to be ready for those questions and we're looking forward to seeing them in a couple of hours now. >> we'll check back. michelle kosinski, many thanks to you. my next guest says he will not support the iran agreement, vowing to work tirelessly to convince his colleagues on both sides of the aisle to oppose it. congressman matt salmon serves
7:19 am
on the house committee of foreign affairs. thank you for being with me. >> thank you. >> you say you'll lobby democrats as well as republicans. what will you say to convince them this isn't a good deal? >> for the democrats, i'll tell them one of their standard-bearers democrat nominee for vice president, joe lieberman, yesterday testified before our committee and said that members of congress should do everything in their power to kill this deal. in fact he said and others that were on the panel said that in the last 40 years, this is probably the most important decision that congress will have voted on. i tend to agree. it's very important. and some of the threshold items that we were hoping to accomplish like anytime anywhere inspections is not available. in fact they're going to be managed inspections. i say if it's good enough to do managed inspections with iran maybe we should do that with our boards of health. have them go ahead and notify the restaurants a couple of
7:20 am
weeks ahead of time that they're going to come investigate. and i guarantee there won't be any citations issued. >> have you read the agreement? have you seen the deal? >> we're reading it as we speak. it's a long agreement. it's well over 100 pages. i am reading the agreement. >> is it possible -- >> i sat through three hours of testimony yesterday. >> -- to make up your mind without first reading the entire deal? >> i think so. i rely very very heavily on other people as well such as the democrat nominee for vice president who i believe is one of the most intelligent folks when it comes to national security that i know. and listening to his concerns about the deal i think that -- >> you're talking about joe lieberman, right, who is very pro-israel right? >> he was also john kerry's running mate for vice president and standard-bearer of the
7:21 am
democratic party. >> i understand. but if you're talking to democrats bringing up this deal bringing up joe lieberman, they might say something like that. >> well, i can't answer for that. the fact is that his credentials are unimpeached. he is somebody that has been willing to cross that threshold time and time again. but the ranking member of our full committee, elliot engel, as expressed dire concerns about the deal as well. joe lieberman is not alone. bob menendez has expressed dire concern. those aren't members of my party. >> what do you tell britain and france and germany if you're the president of the united states and the congress rejects the deal? what do you tell those other countries? >> the same thing that other presidents have told other leaders of other countries when they've had to go back to the negotiating table. it's not the end of anything.
7:22 am
it simply means that this deal wasn't good enough for the people of the united states to agree to and we're going to have to go back to the drawing board. it's been done before and it can be done many times in the future. we've got to get it right. and the other thing that i would say is that i'm really not ultimately responsible for the people of great britain or france. i'm responsible for the people here in the united states. and i think that's what the president would have to say and our people have given it a resounding no. so we're going to have to go back to the drawing board and get it right. >> and when you say get it right, is there an alternative plan out there to stop iran from developing nuclear weapons? >> i heard earlier in some of the comments on your news station that the big defense is that iran has to have this program for energy purposes. yesterday it was brought up in our committee and the hearings that there are 20 countries in the world today that use nuclear power that do not produce their
7:23 am
own fissile material. they buy it from other countries. you do not have to produce fissile energy to produce energy. it's far cheaper to buy it from other countries that already produce. >> but as far as an alternative deal is there one out there? >> the president hasn't pursued any kind of an alternative deal. we have maximum leverage right now, i believe, with the sanctions that have been imposed upon iran not just by our country but internationally as well. and so we hold the cards. iran doesn't hold the cards. they're not going to change their stripes unless we force them to change their stripes. this deal does nothing to really require -- they're the ones that are out celebrating right now because they got everything and basically we got nothing. >> congressman matt salmon, thank you so much for your insight. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> we'll carry the president's news conference live. it will come your way in a few hours, scheduled for 1:00 eastern time. still to come in the "newsroom" r donald trump's popularity is rising. a look at what could be fueling

it is christmas in july for some shoppers. amazon has declared today prime day today with deals that are better than on black friday. there is a chach. the deep discounts are only available to prime members. walmart decided to get in on the action, too, offering hundreds of deals of its own. paula monica joins me now with how it's going. i guess it's not really going. >> there's a bit of a backlash in social media. some people think it's more like subprime day than prime day. one of the problems in addition to the fact that you have to spend $99 for the prime subscription but the deals are like lightning deals that have
7:29 am
wait lists. if i wanted a wait list i'd apply for college again. >> if you want a tv they put you -- >> for some of the products there are wait lists. there are certain deals of the day you can buy and immediately it goes in the cart 50% off. some of the deals are really good. there's "lord of the rings" trilogy, dvd, 75% off. but it doesn't make a lot of sense for consumers to have to wait when they can go over to and all these rollbacks, they're promising you click and you've bought it. >> shopping online is about instant gratification -- >> you'd think amazon would get that. but a lot of consumers are going to put it in their cart see if the price drops later. for some that have nothing better to do, maybe it's worth sitting in front of the computer all day -- >> yeah, yeah. walmart is doing -- why did walmart jump in? >> i'm sure walmart is doing great. we have no idea what the sales for the two companies are like
7:30 am
actually just yet. but walmart is desperately trying to play catch-up to amazon. they are way beyond in online retail. that is the way of the future. people obviously buying not just on the computers but smartphones as well. walmart recognizes that they have to do more to be competitive with amazon. now, this deal maybe it does help because they are getting people to buy stuff and get that instant gratification you're talking about. amazon though, still the clear leader. i don't think that's going to change anytime soon even though a lot of consumers aren't thrilled. >> so you're on a wait list now. >> i'm on a wait list -- yahtzee on a wait list. do i need to save 50% off on a game that's only eight bucks to begin with? >> thank you so much. i appreciate it. it was a lot of fun. i'll be right back. good morning.
7:31 am
i'm carol costello. thank you for joining me. chris christie is in annapolis, maryland today for what his campaign is calling a, quote, special announcement. reports indicate that maryland governor larry hogan, a republican will endorse christie. in 2014 as chairman of the republican governors association, christie backed hogan's campaign. christie is no doubt hoping that endorsement will give him a boost in the polls where his rival donald trump has scored a big victory with voters. a new "usa today"/suffolk university poll showing trump sitting at the top of the republican field at 17%. but he is within the margin of error seasoned a in a statistical tie with jeb bush who comes in at 14%. scott walker ted cruz marco rubio rounding out the top five. cnn politics reporter sara murray joins me now. what's behind the surge? >> reporter: i think that donald trump is speaking to a certain wing within the republican party
7:32 am
that wants to see someone who sort of has this brash take on the issues wants to hear someone talk about border security and sanctuary cities. this is what voters were telling me when i was out in phoenix for his rally this past weekend. they like his tone the idea of a fearless politician even if they're not super familiar with his stance on many other issues. one woman said he's donated to democrats, to republicans. i'm not sure what to qualify him as. >> well the polls show other numbers that aren't so favorable to donald trump, right? his favorability numbers aren't so great among all voters right? >> reporter: it's interesting. we've seen the polls start to diverge on this. the last couple of polls have shown high unfavorable numbers. 61% for donald trump. a couple of other polls show he's been able to bring down some of those unfavorables and his favorability numb numbers are ticking back up. so we need more results.
7:33 am
i think the reality is there's a limited pool of voters that donald trump and his message are going to appeal to. the question is, how big is that pool and is it going to be a problem for others in the race. >> sara, thank you. i want to bring in robert kiger, he runs a super pac and is a big supporter of donald trump. good morning, sir. >> good morning, carol. how are you? >> i'm good, thank you so much for being here. why do you like donald trump? >> well you know i started this pac about six months ago. and i get really tired of sitting around and complaining about the way the country was. i think that the country's in serious, serious trouble. and so i wanted to get involved. and donald trump -- look people are really tired of the clinton/bush dynasty. might make for a really good aaron spelling weekly tv drama
7:34 am
but i think most people just simply want to get up and change the channel. i think he embodies what people want. they want a politician that isn't tied to big corporations isn't tied to big donors, isn't tied to big pacs. he's funding his own campaign. he is his own person. like him or not, he is not going to be controlled by anyone. and i think that's really resonating with a lot of people. >> well it's resonating with a lot of people you're right, at the moment. but of course a lot of people actually don't like the words he's choosing to describe things, specifically immigration. i want you to listen to something donald trump told our dana bash yesterday. >> we're get pg beaten by everybody. it's about results. you have to get results.
7:35 am
they're worried about the tone. is their voice raised a little bit? >> so what does mr. trump mean by "they're worried about the tone"? what tone is he talking about? can you hear me, mr. kiger? >> oh, i'm sorry, carol. i didn't hear very much of that clip. but, listen i think people are tired of the political correctness in this country. they want somebody that's going to be in people's face. they need a game-changer. and if he's a little bit -- what's surrounded his remarks about illegal immigration during his announcement speech i think it's been a little bit trumped up by the media and obfuscated by the media because i think
7:36 am
they want hillary clinton -- they don't want him to be the nominee because they know he'll beat hillary clinton. >> i understand your point about political correctness. but i don't understand why you don't understand why some people might be upset at what mr. trump said about mexican illegal immigrants coming across the border. i'll read you his direct quote so no one misunderstands anything. "when mexico sends its people they're not sending the best they're not sending you, they're sending people that have lots of problems and they're bringing those problems. they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists and some, i assume, are good people." do you understand why that might insult some people? >> i do. and i have a lot of -- we're kind of in the hotbed of immigrants here in south florida. and i have a lot of supporters that are hispanics and latin
7:37 am
americans that have come here and they have worked really really hard to become -- >> doesn't that language bother you, then? doesn't that kind of language bother you, even if it's coming from a man you admire? >> i do admire him, you're correct. and it doesn't bother me because i know exactly what he's talking about. he's talking about the mexican government bringing prisoners and sending prisoners to this country, people that they don't want. he wasn't talking about legal immigrants immigrants. he hires thousands of them. >> no, he was talking about illegal immigrants coming across the border and he called most of them rapists and murderers and he said the mexican government was sending them. do you believe that? >> do i believe that the mexican government is pushing them across the border? sure. i think they're encouraging it. they're encouraging it.
7:38 am
they're certainly not stopping it. >> and you were saying that you have -- that you know of many hispanic supporters of donald trump. why do they tell you that they like him and what resonates with them about donald trump? >> because they came here and they did everything that they were supposed to do and they did it correctly and they worked hard at it. and to have someone just come over the border stay break the law and not do any of the hard work to become a united states citizen doesn't make them very happy. >> and just a final question for you, because we were talking about that poll before this interview. and donald trump's unfavorability number is very high. some 60% of all voters have an unfavorable view of him. why do you think that is and do you think that will hurt his chances to become president?
7:39 am
>> i think as time goes on and people get more familiar with him, those numbers have changed immensely in the last 30 days. and i think it's going to continue to get better and better and better. >> robert kiger, thank you so much for your insight. i appreciate it. >> thanks, carol. >> you're welcome. still to come in the "newsroom," it's been a year since malaysia airlines -- since that malaysian airlines flight was shot out of the sky. now a new report reveals who was behind it. ♪ if you can't stand the heat, get off the test track. get the mercedes-benz you've been burning for at the summer event, going on now at your authorized mercedes-benz dealer. hurry, before this opportunity cools off. share your summer moments in your

7:44 am
>> reporter: good morning, carol. according to a source who has knowledge of the details of this report dutch investigators say evidence points to pro-russian rebels as being responsible for shooting down malaysia flight mh-17. now, the dutch safety board is investigating the incident. but a draft copy of the investigative report has been circulated to accredited representatives in the investigation, that includes boeing faa and the ntsb. this report pinpoints the exact type of missile used where it was launched and who was in control of the territory where this missile came from. and, again, all signs pointing to pro-russian rebels. carol? >> rene the sources also say this report is placing blame on malaysian airlines. why is that? >> reporter: yes. according to these two source the report does indeed pin some blame on malaysia airlines specifically for how its planes
7:45 am
were dispatched on that day. the report says that the airline was not reading other countries' notice to airmen and continued to fly over the conflict zone while other airlines avoided it. now, notice to airmen or ntams are written notifications written to pilots warning them of a possible missile launch over conflict zones. what happens amongst u.s. carriers, they make decisions about where to fly, where not to fly based on these notice to airmen that different countries issue to their pilots. the dutch investigators say because malaysia airlines did not review other countries' warnings it was unaware that other countries were avoiding the conflict zone that day. >> is this report you're talking about, it was done by dutch officials, i want to be clear for our viewers. >> reporter: absolutely. the dutch safety board, they are
7:46 am
leading the investigation. however, there are other entities like boeing faa and ntsb that are also playing a role here. so it's customary based on international aviation law to essentially once you have your draft report complete to circulate it so that others may also give input to the report. and that's exactly what we were able to get details from that draft report carol. >> rene marsh reporting live thanks so much. still to come in the "newsroom," insane or a cold-blooded killer? a jury debating the fate of the theater shooter, james holmes. i don't want to live with the uncertainties of hep c. or wonder... ...whether i should seek treatment. i am ready. because today there's harvoni. a revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis c. harvoni is proven to cure up to 99% of patients... ...who've had no prior treatment. it's the one and only cure that's...
