2:01 am
it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. let's begin with the chilling new dash cam video of sandra bland's arrest. texas police claim the 28-year-old civil rights activist from illinois hanged herself in her jail cell three days after she was pulled over and arrested during this routine traffic stop. bland's family doesn't buy it. they believe police are responsible for her death. the dramatic new video showing how quickly the officer's encounter with bland spiraled out of control. we get more from cnn's ryan young in waller county, texas. >> reporter: very active day in this investigation. people wanting to know what exactly happened to sandra bland. you can break this up into two parts. first, what happened during a traffic stop and now we are getting to see dash cam video from inside the trooper's car. you can really see how quickly this escalated after he pulled over. there was a short conversation and then this happened. >> do you mind putting out your cigarette, please, if you don't mind? >> i'm in my car. why do i have to put out my cigarette? >> you can step on out now. >> i don't have to step out of
2:02 am
the car. >> step out of the car. >> why am i -- >> step out of the car! >> no, you don't have the right. >> step out of the car. >> you do not have the right to do that. >> i do have the right. now step out or i will remove you. >> i refuse to talk to you other than -- >> step out or i will remove you! >> reporter: that struggle happens off camera. we do know someone arrived with a cell phone and started shooting what was going on between that officer and miss bland. the officer has been put on administrative leave during this investigation because we were told there were some violations involved in this traffic stop. but, yesterday afternoon, we got a chance to go inside the jail cell, number 95, where sandra bland had spent the last three days before she hanged herself, according to investigators. the sheriff walked us through and showed us how someone could look through the window and see her feet dangling. we actually saw a trash can that had the same kind of trash liner that they believe she rolled up and put around her neck. now, the sheriff details how the hallway, as soon as you walk
2:03 am
down it video cameras activate and let's someone knows someone is in that hallway. investigators tried to see if they could sneak under the cameras, that didn't happen, but this investigation remains far from over. christine? >> certainly a lot more to know there. thank you for that ryan. >> to politics now. donald trump and lindsey graham escalating their war of words. the billionaire front-runner fired back, not only calling graham an idiot and a stiff, but also broadcasting the south carolina senator's cell phone number on live television. let's bring in cnn chief congressional correspondent dana bash. >> reporter: there is an old saying, politics ain't being bad but it usually isn't a schoolyard brawl either and that is what this republican presidential race is right now. donald trump, here in south carolina, calling his fellow republican candidate lindsey

graham and stiff, after graham called him jackass first and then trump did something that is kind of unbelievable. he held up lindsey graham's personal cell phone number and read it on, what turned out to be, national television. >> i wrote the number down. i don't know if it's the right number. let's try it. 202 [ bleep ] i don't know. maybe -- it's three or four years ago so maybe it's an old number. >> reporter: it is something that everybody kind of looked at and said, is this really happening? and the answer is, it is happening. and not necessarily that cell phone stunt, but the kind of uncensored politically incorrect donald trump is what is drawing crowds like we saw here in south carolina. about 1,100 people came from within this retirement community to hear him speak. the auditorium was filled to the gills and there was an overflow room and they were really mesmerized. i have to say that he had these
2:05 am
potential voters in the palm of their hand. now it, obviously, as it always is with donald trump, was not a traditional stump speech, it was more of a one-man show. he had some big applause lines on the issues that he has used to rise in the polls, illegal immigration, why the obama administration can't, in his view, make good deals, whether it's on trade or iran. but, for the most part, it was people wanting to come and see what all of the fuss is about. some saying that he scares them and that he is just a celebrity and they wanted to see the celebrity for themselves. but this is something that it really is apparent now, that he is tapping into a sentiment in the republican party, not necessarily on the issues, but on the need for somebody who says it like it is, who is a doer. these are words that voters, themselves, used with me outside so this is his first time here in the early primary state,

2:07 am

>> reporter: we know that mohammad abdulazeez, the gunman, went to jordan last year and and that u.s. authorities are investigating that trip. we are being told by a family representative that his parents wanted him to go to jordan because of the downward spiral his life had taken in tennessee with severe depression and drug addiction. they hoped he would get his life in order and live with relatives for a time in jordan. one of those was an uncle. we have learned that uncle has been detained by authorities. a lawyer for that uncle says he is not free to go and is being questioned and detained four days. he has not been arrested. it is not being considered, at this point, that he is being investigated for any crime, just that he is being questioned by jordanian authorities who are not commenting about the interrogation that is taking place. also, we want to tell you about the possibility that this gunman received any outside advice from any people who wanted him to become a domestic terrorist. the parents deny that but do say in his weak moments, though, he got into, quote, evil ideology. they say he had some writings back in 2013 after he was fired from a job at an ohio nuclear
