certainly more horrific details are coming out from the police. the first explosion at the starbucks cafe attached to the office building. two foreign nationals and one dutch national and another one dutch national and another and shot them. the dutch national did survive. the police responded. there's police outposts across the street. they responded and attackers fought back with grenades. that's why you also saw reports of police being injured here. an armed suspect finally fled, it seems now, that there were several of them, that they blew themselves up inside a commercial establishment. just behind the starbucks coffee shop. again, very, very shocking details that are coming out today. but it looks very clear that the attacks, the targets of these attacks, were westerners.
alisyn. >> all right. we are learning more details. thank you for the reporting so far. we are hearing there are foreigners involved as victims, you have to remember, indonesia is the most muslim populous country in the world. 250,000 people living in and around the capital there. we have an eyewitness to the attack. christian huebel. christian, what can you tell us about what you saw. >> well this morning around 11:00 o'clock, we saw from our office here, the whole scene, because we are located at level 20. we are at a marketing entity in the most central office in jakarta. and from here, we have a clear view of it, and we saw that there was a big explosion. and we saw some huge smoke. and there were like several
explosions or shots or something like that, within 30 minutes, and people were running away. and it was like completely messed up. in the beginning, nobody knew what was going on, what the explosion was. after, we saw several reports, we thought, there must have been something going on like an attack or something. we discussed with our friends and so on. and asked -- if everybody's okay. the rumor was about multiple explosions in other places. but it's really like a huge bombed area this morning. >> how long did it last, from your point of observation? how quickly did it seem that there was a response? >> the police was there pretty fast. also the military police. they locked down the whole area because the incident was on a
main road here in central jakarta. so, there was no traffic suddenly. and this is a very situation in jakarta where the traffic is so huge normally. and they closed down the area where nobody was approaching the whole scene. so it looks like there's something going on. maybe a man down or something like that. it looks like nobody is approaching him. it looks like this takes at least two hours until the whole scene is over. >> now, people are likening it it to what happened in paris recently, because it seemed to be a team of attacks using different types of weapons. but this is a very different place, indonesia. i mean, this is the largest muslim population in the world. what is the feeling there about what's going on, who's being attacked and why? >> yeah, thas a good question, because to be honest, the last two weeks and month, it feels pretty safe here because all of the big hotels, there's always a
security check in front of the building. they check the luggage. they check the cars. also when you walk on the street, it feels okay. so i was not threatened here. but it is also the scenery where it happened, it's not just -- it's not just the western locations, also like locals are there. a lot of office people are there. a lot of national travelers there are. so, it's like multiple types of team. and not only westerners. >> absolutely. it's a very diverse community there. but again, it is the largest muslim population. luckily, so far, from what we understand those injured, those killed, not as big as it could have been, given how densely pop lated the area is, christian, we're glad you're okay. thank you very much for telling us what happened this morning. be safe. >> okay. thank you. those attacks there in jakarta come only two days after ten german tourists were killed
in a terror attack in istanbul. officials in turkey say the isis suicide bomber who carried out that attack kerred the area as a syrian refugee. they say the syrian was fingerprinted last week as a refugee but was not on any watch list. back here, the fbi director says it is investigating the ambush shooting of a philadelphia police officer as an act of terrorism. police said he already told them he was inspired with isis. any ties to the group is still unclear. the officer miraculously survived. he was able to subdue the shooter despite being hit three times, alisyn. is that what we will see in the world of jakarta and what will the world do about it. joining me the co-author of
"isis new terror." this happened in a starbucks in a busy tourist area, why would anyone not think it's not isis? >> well, it could be any al qaeda group in jakarta. the indonesian police were quick coming out saying we know this is isis. is this a country with very good security services. they had thought to be pretty secure from isis attacks. although it's true that isis does have a small franchise in southeast asia, one of the things that got my spidey senses up yesterday was at the same time this was going on, there was a sweep of the sydney opera qaeda and osama bin laden and the founder of what we call isis had a beef about these three countries in 2002.
remember the bali bombings? holiday makers. that was because of bin laden, australia had helped them gain their independence from indonesia. before bombing from officially a member of al qaeda, he said this is also a retaliation to that. so they always seem to come back to this area, these countries in southeast asia. >> what do you make, the reason people say it's a terrorist style attack because it's multiple areas that can be coordinated? >> yes, we're seeing a modus operandi with respect to isis. guys on motor bikes. happened close to an area that western terrorists bound to aggregate. it seems in some cases these guys are trying to get away with their lives. they're not all martyrdom operations, right?
throwing grenades, fleeing the scene, that's interesting too. remember in paris, most were supposed to go off to their death and then you have abdeslam who kind of chickened out. >> i believe the attackers in the jakarta thing killed themselves? >> they were. but we're talking between 10 and 15, right? what happened to the other guys were they meant to leave the scene or put up a propaganda video or something of that sort. >> so this is the third thing we've seen in a week. there's jakarta. there's turkey. >> yep. >> the suicide bomber in the middle of a tourist area killed ten. philadelphia police, or counterterrorism officials now say they believe what happened in philadelphia where a police officer was ambushed, they link that to terrorism. so, this the new normal? >> yes. i've been saying for months, look, these guys, it's not a new strategy. going back to the early 2000s, al qaeda and iraq, they blew up
hotels in imam, jordan. that was the biggest spectacular outside of the zone of iraq. but these guys are now saying as we're losing terrain in syria, as the caliphate has been somewhat restricted in the two countries now let's reamplify forces. an isis spy that i interviewed months ago, he said, look, we're training up to this. it's not just the guys training up. it's the phenomenon of invisible armies. the guy in philadelphia, i guarantee you, had no direct tice to the isis cell in syria and iraq. he was inspired. he could have been a nutjob. a lot of the people that tend to be attracted to these movement, sociopaths and mentally ill people who want to commit some act of ultra violence. and they turn on the television and say isis is giving me a sense of purpose.
is this a vanguard move in the world now. they're drawn to it. >> chilling stuff, michael, we appreciate you being on. now to the big good news, depending on your perspective. of you are millionaires this morning. three winning tickets in the record $1.6 billion powerball drawing. now, there will be a lost sharing, but sharing is caring especially when it comes to the world's largest prize. winning tickets were sold in california. florida, tennessee. dozens of other people across the country, again, millionaires overnight, thanks to the smaller prizes. it's not just one slice. it's a big pie. cnn's sara sidner live outside of the one big location, encino hills, i've didn't there, does that count? >> reporter: it does, but if you didn't play a ticket at this place, you're out of luck.
there are tons of people who never check because they don't win the big jackpot, they never check. so that money sits there and they never claim it. you only have six months to do so. that being said, when this community found out that it was their store, their 7-eleven that sold one of the winning tickets. this place went crazy. there were dozens and dozens of people who showed up cheering just because. but they were also cheering the man who runs the store, he's been here 24 years, and they clearly like him. we talked to him. he's also a winner, winning $1 million just for selling the ticket. >> i'm very, very happy. whoever got some from here. and so thankful for my people that support me all year long. >> reporter: and do you know what? he's still here. he was planning on leaving. he was getting very tired. but he's cleaning up the store as people are still coming and going. it's incredible.
everybody here. you can see why they love him. >> great pride, too, in what he's done. congratulations to him. i love that you're there. i love that nobody is sleeping in chino hills right now. joining us now gary, akk the dreammaker. i have to thank you for the l lunacy you created in the "new day" offices yesterday. go have more information on the winners in california, tennessee and florida? >> no, now, we've gault quite the waiting game. they've got like you said six months in order to come forward and claim that prize. we're just trying to encourage anyone who might be holding that winning ticket. go get the best lawyer. the best financial planner you can find before you come in and claim that one-third, almost
$1.6 billion prize. >> that is savvy advice. typically, how long is it before big jackpot winners come forward? >> i've seen them show up the week after they've won. and i've seen them wait almost the entire six months. typically, with this type of prize, we'll probably start hearing from winners if not later this week, perhaps early next week. >> a lot of long faces from folks who didn't win the jackpot negotiation egg back to their regular day. the fact is there wasn't just three jackpot winners. there's dozens of winners across the country not just the three. >> michaela, we had 81 people across the country who won $1 million. eight of those actually won $2 million. >> wow. >> let's not forget, through this powerball roll, more than $1.2 billion was raised for good causes like public education, scholarships and the environment. what a roll it's been.
>> alisyn was concerned that we haven't checked our numbers because we could be sitting on at least $1,000 or something. you say there's some $2 billion in unclaimed prize money annually? >> that's right. and we encourage players, just because you didn't win the big one, don't throw that ticket away. check that ticket. you can go to any retailer and check that ticket as well. we want to pay those prizes, michaela, don't let them go unclaimed. >> what happens if they don't? what happens if the six months goes by, what happens to the money? >> all unclaimed prizes go back to public education. it depends on what state in which you purchased the ticket. >> just because because we are a news organization, on the flip side, a lot of news made of this being $1.6 billion. a lot of changes to up the size of the jackpot. is this sustainable, though?
>> i believe you saw the players vote as to whether or not they liked these changes to the matrix with their dollars. we've never seen excitement. we've never seen sales like this. we don't anticipate making any changes in the near future. now, we're back to start at just a paltry $40 million. >> that's nothing to sneeze at, gary. >> we'll see what the next roll takes us. >> we'll see what the next roll takes. you we'll hopefully hear when you know about the jackpot winners. please let us know if you do hear anything. gary grief, as i've renamed him the dreammaker, alisyn. >> check this for me. >> i will. the citizenship issue not the only issue facing ted cruz. we're learning that he failed to disclose hundreds of thousanding us of loans while in senate.
they speak louder. we like that. not just because we're doers. because we're changing. big things. small things. spur of the moment things. changes you'll notice. wherever you are in the world. sheraton.

nice, bro-tato chip. that's not all, bro-tein shake. geico has motorcycle and rv insurance, too. oh, that's a lot more. oh yeah, i'm all about more, teddy brosevelt. geico. expect great savings and a whole lot more. wheall i can think abouthit, is getting relief. only nicorette mini has a patented fast-dissolving formula. it starts to relieve sudden cravings fast. i never know when i'll need relief. that's why i only choose nicorette mini.
but it also means different things. these two guys represent something in different parties. they're trying to get to the same thing in different ways. let's bring in political anchor and errol louis. let's but up the number, does it bother you that ted cruz was born in the united states, in iowa, because that's the context? is this helping or hurting in iowa? look, it's not a big factor, errol, but it means something else in the narrative, right? the narrative matters just as much. what is at stake here and and what's the play? >> i think what donald trump is trying to do, i've been saying this all along, sort of distract off the issues, push everyone else off the stage and get one-on-one with the main attacker. whoever gets closer in the polls, he kind of goes after that person. what this mean, there's been a lot of immigrant bashing. i'm not sure how you describe
it. and you start nudging cruz in that direction. what's his story, he's sort of cuban, he's sort of canadian, where was he born? s that the question. so you throw up a lot of smoke pipe don't think voters go s ar going to go for it. >> but, sarah, maybe it is having a bit of an impact, 15% isn't huge. but there is this poll out of des moines that shows his numbers are down. he had 35%, now ted cruz has 25%. can we blame that issue there? >> i think we'll keep seeing this up until the caucus. because a lot of voters still haven't made up their mind. sort of tightening and widening. but i will say the one way this attack could be affected if
donald trump convinces voters they should think about ted cruz as someone unelectable. when you talk to voters in iowa, they're really focused on choosing a candidate that they feel can actually win in a general election. that's part of the reason they've been torn between donald trump and ted cruz, trying to decide who can be stronger and more formidable against hillary clinton. as the cruz campaign ratchets up their attack on trump, that's what they went for. if cruz is in a one to one match up with hillary clinton, he would do better against hillary clinton. >> and donald trump making his overall works in narratives. and politics is often perception of reality. if i get people thinking that you may not be like that in some way that all of a sudden matters and sneaky. so ted cruz has to think, the law's clear. nobody cares about the law. now he's got this sound bite in terms of who donald trump is.
listen to what cruz just said about trump. >> i think he may shift in his new rallies to playing new york, new york. because you know, donald comes from new york and he embodies new york values. listen, the donald seems to be a bit rattled. >> ouch. a new yorker. >> he got four new yorks in five seconds there. that's his version of sort of doing the same thing. new york, for conservative base, especially rural areas of the midwest, all you have to do is say new york and you can let people conjure up any demon you want. with all the diversity, and problems with crime and everything else, you lump donald trump in with that that's where ted cruz tries to make a comeback. but also, let's keep in mind, cruz has been the subjects of attacks from the ethanol industry. >> sure. >> because he has not supported
their subsidies. he's been understa attack from number of different sources including ben carson, mike huckabee. he's been taking a lot of flak. >> trump's genius, sara murray. >> yeah. i would just say there aren't a lot of voters in iowa who run around telling me they're worried about canadian immigrants. you have to remember voters have a much different perception of syrian refugees, muslims, of mexicans coming over the southern border than they do of canadians, it's not really the same thing. >> right, right. but he also threw the cuban thing in there. look, donald trump is very, very smart. people make such a mistake, when they say, did you hear what he said? he's not i smart guy -- yes, he is. he knows what to say. case in point, you call him angry. harshness doesn't work -- wrong. it's not where we are right now. he knows that, so, listen to his reply. >> nikki haley, very nice woman,
she said i'm an angry person. and they said to me, they said you're an angry person. i thought, i am, i'm very angry, because i hate what's happening to our country. i am angry. very angry. >> look, you can argue all day whether this is right, whether this is wrong, it's effective. and he knows that. and i think the real test is going to be, errol, who do you want to be with the gop? >> it's not confind gop, by the way. on the question of anger in particular, bernie sanders also making inroads in iowa. he's a pretty angry guy. in fact, it's so over the top, you've got comedians making fun of it. he himself is in on the joke but in a way, it's not a joke. this is one style of politics that says if you're fed up, mad as hell, i can motivate
nikki haley doesn't do that. py lot of politics don't do. >> because voters are angry. they like the idea that their representative is angry. sara, "the new york times" reports that ted cruz had taken out two personal loans from citibank and goldman sachs for almost $1 million that he pumped into his senate race. previously, according to "the new york times," undisclosed. ted cruz said, no, no, i talked about this a lot. i exposed it on various paperwork. is this an issue? >> i think this is interesting because it looks bad from an exposure point. he didn't dispose it in the right place. he took out big loans. but i do think there's a pretty easy way for ted cruz to spin this to say, of course, i took out loans. we borrowed against our own assets and we paid them back. what american family cannot relate to this notion of taking
out a loan and paying it back to fund an enterprise? i think if he talks about it you can effectively neuter the issue and move on. we'll see how he handles it. >> well, look, he went after it early. and he does have good facts on his side as well. he didn't never not tell anybody about the loans. he might have had a filing disclosure issue. there's a lot of paperwork involved so he might be able to show something with that. >> let's pull up the iowa poll out on the democratic side, just released a half hour ago, and it shows this razor thin margin where clinton now has 42% of the democrats choice for nominee. sanders at 40%. that's within the margin of error, errol. >> yes, bernie sanders has been diligent. he's picked up a piece of obama coalition that i think clinton has had problems connecting with. the millennials.
some of the university towns. the ideological left. the hippy generation. they like bernie sanders. he reminds them of their professors, he talks the way they talk. clinton has to make a nuance value yes it's nice to hear about free tuition in the country but can you actually do it. i'm a practical politician. i know how to compromise and get things done. bernie sanders doesn't have any baggage and i think that's why he's doing well. >> errol, sara, thank you. in the 8:00 hour we'll talk with senator rand paul about why he's skipping tonight's undercard debate after not qualifying for the main stage. a smartphone had had a lot to do with capturing el chapo. turns out it's not such a good idea to text and run. we've got details ahead. but what if you could wake up to lower blood sugar? imagine loving your numbers.

getting new developments every day. we are learning more this morning about how mexican authorities were able to recapture the fugitive drug lord joaquin "el chapo" guzeman. it appears that text messages between el chapo and the actress who brokered a secret meeting with sean penn. those text messages suggest that el chapo had more on his mind than just publicity, nudge, nudge, wink, wink. interesting details we're learning. >> day by day, even more details. joaquin "el chapo" guzeman is
said to be one of the most ruthless killers in the world but newly released text messages between a mexican actress and him it appears that love that brought him down. >> reporter: cnn is learning the shocking visit by these two famous actors to the most inch famous drug lord in the world came long before the october encounter. u.s. officials were alertsed about sean penn's meeting with joaquin "el chapo" guzeman soon after he arrive >> we're tremendously gratified that capture was successful. and we look forward to having el chapo face extradition to an american court. >> reporter: mexican officials said they had text messages with kate del castillo dating lack to last year. el chapo meeting i really want to meet you in person, friend. the actress reply, well, me, too, you are the best of this
world. el chapo refers, we will be great friends i will take care of you more than my own eyes. and he said, have her bring the actress and if she sees the need to bring more people, let her bring them as she likes. then i'm very excited about our story. it's true, it's the only thing i can think of. on wednesday, the actress took to twitter saying mm have chosen to make up items they think will make good stories and that aren't truthful. i look forward to sharing my story with you. >> mexican authority has a lead on el chapo's whereabouts, back in october during penn and
delcastillo's visit. but it was ultimately the fear that they would get caught in the cross fire. it took three months to catch up with the kingpin. chris. >> nick, thank you so much. we also have another development, breaking news out of italy. police will announces an arrest in the death of that american artist. who was it? and what was this person's connection to the victim? we have answers and new questions -- ahead. it's a fact. kind of like reunions equal blatant lying. the company is actually doing really well on, on social media. oh that's interesting. i - i started social media. oh! it was my...baby. i accept i'm not the rower i used to be.. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't accept is getting out there with less than my best. so if i can go for something better than warfarin, i will.
eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. that really mattered to me. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i accept i don't have to set records. but i'm still going for my personal best. and for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.
of course, olsen was later found dead, strangled with two skull fractures. let's break it down with paul callan, cnn analyst and defense attorney. good do you feel of the case so farry. >> i'm sure they've been under tremendous pressure to get this right, in view of what happened in the amanda knox case. as we talked about before we came on the similarities in the knox case are remarkable. >> in terms of the why at this point. they're different than the american system. they're big on motivations and talking about it early on. here, they're connecting them to the nightclub. we do know that night she stayed past when her friends did, ashley olsen. they now say she came back to the house. why the association there? >> i think the italians have become more careful, i think they've become more sophisticated in terms of dealing with the press and
criminal cases. the more the police say the more they get hyperanalyzed. i suspect as this goes on we'll get more detail and thoroughly developed indication. >> what do you make of the coincidence, once again, meredith kercher, obviously, the suspect there, amanda knox, that's what got our attention on it. it wound up coming back to an african guy involved with drugs, ivory coast or this guy senegal. any suspicion is there, skepticism, oh, they're looking looking to point the finger at the same guy. >> rudi guede, in the meredith kirscher death. it's strange that you have another african immigrant who becomes the prime suspect. but on the other hand, italy brings a lot of people in from africa, other countries, they have a large immigrant
population. there's a lot of crime involved with that. a lot of those immigrants who come in are poor and they're more prone to criminal activity in italy. i think statistically, this is not unusual in italy. >> that is exactly what the sources over there are saying. there's intrigue there because she's american and we remember the last one. this is open and shut. they say they're able to make a forensic tie, not just a circumstantial one. and explain how huge that is in the italian system. >> yeah, we were talking previously in the amanda knox case about how they blew the forensics in that case. and that was the achilles' heel of that system. i think they're focused on getting this one right. >> but here's the problem that they have to figure this out, if this was a random association is and it goes the way they think it did, that would explain no forced entry. but it wouldn't necessarily explain how you have the indications that are there of
being -- you know, there's still some problems with this fact pattern to understand no signs of struggle. no signs of forced entry. okay, we get it. they were together. no signs of struggle. yet you wind up being strangled. that's a little tricky. >> that's very strange. i also notice in the autopsy report she had two skull fractures in addition to strangulation. i haven't seen toxicology, it's possible she was unconscious during the strangulation. and that would explain in some ways the lack of struggle. now, how did he get into the apartment? she could have left the door open because she knew he was coming to arrive later. we don't have enough detail to speculate. >> one forensicist said let's find out about the attacks. because if the head blows come later on, that could say that the person what incapacitated.
yet, the two steps to come, how they handle the scene, how they process this case and what they make of any connection with drugs and how they may compromise it. >> and how are with the press and how they handle the press which is another thing they blew in the amanda knox case. >> right. less is moore. paul callan, appreciate it. winning powerball tickets sold in three states. dozens of people around the united states waking up millionaires this morning. we're going to break down that record-breaking $1.6 billion prize next. if you misplace your discover card, you can use freeze it to prevent new purchases on your account in seconds.

a ukrainian teenager were killed when a fast rushing pile calm downing down the ski slope. the largest prize in history will be split three ways. california, florida and tennessee, christine romans, aka, auntie christine has sage advice for any winner. >> hi. assuming any of the winners take the lump sum of $930 million split three ways, that's $310 million each. than the tax man coming for his share. it will be taxed ted highest federal income bracket, 39.6%. that's the cut that winners and florida and tennessee will get. they're extra lucky. there's no state income tax there. they'll get $187 million after taxes, right? the winner in california will likely fork over another 12.3% in state income tax for a total
of $149 million. the california winner, assuming it's just one, $149 million. meanwhile, 180 people are waking up millionaires. practical advice. first, hire a tax attorney before you do anything. make the big splurge. get it out of your system, repeat after me, grow the money, don't spend it all. put in in a 30-year treasury bond with interest of 2.85%-just the interest on that money is $4.2 million a year. cow live on $4.2 million. and then you might want to change your cell phone number. >> no, you have to change the cell phone number. grow the money? >> grow the money. all of those people who are broke five or ten years later, the real important advice is put it away. spend a little something but put it away. >> stories are fascinating about how many people's lives are ruined by lottery. >> yes. >> we should all take comfort in that either. >> that's not the rule.
you don't have to hoard your money like romanamans is to -- >> she's tight as two coats of paint? >> tight as two coats of paint. >> not like the guy who said prostitutes and cocaine. >> but that's never good, whether you have lots of money or not. it's good to avoid that. meanwhile, republican candidates going to war over the birther battle targeting ted cruz. we'll talk to a conservative radio host. about all the potential fallout.
well, the battle escalatie ing between donald trump and ted cruz, sparking a civil war of sorts within the gop. joining us now from irvine, california is radio conservative talk show host hugh hewitt up at 3:00 a.m. on the west coast. were you checking your lottery numbers, or up for us? >> well, i did make sure the people in my law firm that bought the tickets were not in chino last night. i just didn't go to bed. i'm celebrating because they -- i have to write down chris'
advice for powerball winners avoid prostitutes and drugs. >> that's for everybody, not just millionaires. >> you there go. hugh, i'm glad you're in good humor, no pun intended because let's talk about this civil war that's erupting over this ted cruz eligibility stuff. you say ted cruz is fairly eligible to be president. there are some popular radio hosts like mark levin who agrees with you. there are other, like ann coulter, brite bart who disagree. ann coulter, the constitution is the constitution. she said never let the kids at kinko's do your research. >> ann says provocative things to sell books. here's the deal, former solicitor general, one, a republican who argued hobby
lobby. the other a democrat. as well as andrew mccarthy, mark levin, john eastman. myself from the right. every serious leerl scholar who has written about this in published publication has concluded there isn't a controversy, not from the time of the frame, natural born citizen means if you're born a citizen of the country. it evolved at the time of the british empire. it is completely uncontested except by controversialists. but donald trump is winning and closing. and donald trump wins because he raises controversial issues. and he has very loyal followers like ann, who then retweet his provocation which add to his lure of that part of that once combativeness. the other thing that is not contested nikki haley hit a huge run on tuesday night. a huge, towering home run.
>> before we get to that, because i do want to hear your thoughts on nikki haley. you say every conservative agrees with you. that's not so, in "the washington post," they published something from widener university, she said donald trump is actually right about something senator ted cruz is not a natural born citizen and therefore is not eligible to be president of the united states. the law is clear. you have to be born in the u.s., she says. >> she's clearly wrong. and what i actually said every legal scholar in a peer review law journal. not an op-ed in "the washington post." i'm quite certain you can find a law professor in the united states that will give any position if that gets them an op-ed in t"the washington post." he's got textbooks on it, he's got horn books we call them.
all of these lefties have never made this argument before. no one's ever made this argument. it's not an argument. ted cruz is eligible. nevertheless, it's a controversy, not an argument. controversy is very useful to donald trump. and he is using it to continue to advance to what looks like a victory in in thanew hampshire. i would not, at this point, want to get into an argument with nikki haley and that's the third of the big contests and she's popular there. >> let's talk about the argument that donald trump is picking with nikki haley. this is because of her response to the state of the union. let's remind viewers what she said. >> first of all, ted's very nervous -- >> that was donald trump. stand by, please. >> you know, when i say it about my other friends running for president, they don't throw stones. the siren call of the angriest
voices. we must resist that temptation. no one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws and our traditions should never feel unwelcome to this country. >> she was saying don't respond to the angriest voices. and donald trump knew that was him. he didn't like it, but he agreed with it. >> he did agree with it last night with erin burnett on this network. earlier in the day, governor haley said yes, i didn't hear it but i take issue with donald trump. and also with jeb bush on common core. but he wshe was clearly definin herself. i heard the nikki haley speech, and i heard nikki haley talk about the mother emanuel attack. and the best angels being the victims' families coming out and forgiveness of the state coming together. i did not hear that minor part of it which i thought an appeal
for illegal immigration. she did not appeal for illegal immigration. she said she's against it. i thought whole thing was manufactured by none other than ann coulter. i told ann like that. she's like the assrsonist who ss the building burn down and complains about the ash. donald trump knows his campaign better than anybody. he's more skilled at this than anybody. >> hthanks for being with us. we're following breaking news. there have been a series of deadly coordinated attacks in indonesia. >> gun fights, bombs, explosions happening. >> second bomb went off as we were getting out of the car. >> look out! >> it was a mistake, that was our fault. and we apologize for our mistake. >> it is not clear whether those statements were made under duress or not.
>> a similar situation might have played out three or four years ago. >> i'd like to think i'm springing every animal out of every shelter, feed every child that is hungry. i also want a ferrari. >> announcer: this is cnn breaking news. good morning, welcome to your "new day." we have two breaking news stories for you. first, three winning tickets in that hist to be $1.6 billion winning jackjackpot. but first, an isis related news agency claiming isis is behind the attacks in jakarta. you can see the explosion right outside of a coffee shop in a bustling shopping district. >> we are told that the terrorists are all dead. that means the immediate threat so far. but there are big questions about the broader threat growing louder this morning, following another deadly attack at the
hands of isis. we have a reporter on the ground. cnn's kathy quijano live in jakarta. kathy, the latest. >> reporter: yes, chris, as you mentioned, police now have confirmed that the five attackers and two civilians were killed here. what was clearly coming out of the situation here is that westerners were targeted in this attack. the first explosion happened in the starbucks, in a busy commercial district here. two attackers dead, targeted two foreign nationals killed them there. they also then attacked a police station just across the street. but what's coming out from the attacks socie s today, as polic going to tell us about the details, is that first, this is a planned attack with a lot of resources put into it. and second, westerners are,
again, the target of these attacks. for a very long time here, authorities felt that local terror networks were not capable of launching attacks like this one. but with this attack today, this might change the total landscape in indonesia once again. al aalisyn. >> we want to bring in this man who was at his office 300 feet from one of the sites of the attacks. he was recording video from the 20th floor when the gunshots first rang out. thank you so much for joining us. >> hello. >> can you tell us what you you saw? >> yeah. first of all, when i was at the 20th floor, i heard the sounds of a blast. immediately, i was confused whether it was actually a thunderstorm or actually something. because now it's the rainy season in jakarta.
but then we realized that the building was a bit shaking. so, like me and my colleagues, we all went to the glass window. and then we saw smoke. and then we realized that, hey, why are people running away? and then what i saw, what i saw was ten -- one police came and then all the roads were empty. then we realized there's something wrong. and i was like 100 meter from that from the top of the building. then i saw the car. and then another -- another blast. and then one car, again with the smoke. and then because of the 20th floor, i could see actually the policeman trying to move closer
to the starbucks nearby. then i saw a guy with a gun. and he's so calm, he's so calm, like he's loading his gun, and then he's like preparing himself to shoot the policeman again. it was a horrible thing. >> handi, what an eyewitness account you give us. you've also provided these videos. some of the ones we're looking at. one of them the aerial view, one of them not seen anywhere from the air, this scattering of people, from your vantage point because you're so high up, it almost looks like ants and you see people moving in all directions. what was happening at that moment? >> yeah, before just running away from all of the direction, and then some people think that it's over. then people started to get closer again. but then when the shooting happened then everybody went away. that's what i saw.
>> so, handi, you say that you saw the gunman, you saw his approach and what looked like his attitude of being very calm. can you describe what you saw him doing? >> i could not see the face because it was pretty far away. but i can see the body, the movement. he wore a hat. and then he wore a bag on the back. and then i think there are two people. one guy preparing to shoot police. and then one guy that's like squatting near the car, nearby, but they were together. so, i don't know what was the guy who squat there. i don't know, maybe putting a bomb or something. definitely, there's one guy, it's very clear that he's loading his gun and preparing to shoot again. >> handi, you are watching all
of this. can you tell us what you and your colleagues were doing? did you think that you were -- how did you have the presence of mind to record this? did you think that you were in danger? >> huh? sorry? >> did you think that your life was in danger? >> we were so scared. we were so scared. and then just would not believe that this kind of thing happened again in jakarta. i mean, our economy started to grow, everything is starting to be in places. and can't believe this thing happened again. it's really a setback. >> it's truly terrible. handi, thank you for sharing your video with us. and your eyewitness account. we're happy you're safe. let's get to chris. >> all right. alisyn, what we're seeing in this style of attack and the frequency has a lot of experts worried. obviously it's like paris what we saw in november.
let's bring in david ross. thank you for coming in on short notice. let's start with the obvious. these style of attacks do seem to be happening more, whether you look at domestically, it does seem to be a wave of people who are either sympathizers or direct actors for isis. is that a true statement at this point? >> absolutely a true statement. the wave has its genesis back to the syrian conflict and the mass of foreign fighters from indonesian countries. what that means, you have a lot of people who have have some experience and able to transition through borders to go back through their countries of origin and moreover, have relationships thatsyria.
we don't know if these are foreign fighters. >> we've seen them not be. the guy that went with the knife and fake vest in paris. and san bernardino, these aren't people who are warriors but it doesn't matter. they seem to be trading frequency for sophistication. i had a guy say see the color of smoke, the range of detonation. this is a very unsophisticated device. but that doesn't matter if you're standing close to it. >> right. the areas that we've seen in the past sophisticated is because of the coordination of the attacks. san bernardino had two shooters it wasn't tickly skilled. paris was very skilled. it had a scale of attackers such that you would in the past have expected security services to disrupt them. it's very clear that the pendulum has swung from favoring and disrupting terrorist plots back to terrorists for a variety of reasons including revelations
about the limitations of western surveillance capabilities, as well as an increase in encrypted communications that are very hard to monitor. but these attacks which involve multiple attackers getting into the world's major capitals, that in itself is something that, in addition to this wave of individuals, gives clear cause for alarm. >> and when you talk about surveillance, the analogy is is that when you can have multiple people working in concert to get something done, that shows, you know, how much you have to reach into people's lives, and how much you need to cover. because if they're able to talk to each other in groups over a long period of time, it's obviously an intelligence concern. also instructive here daveed is where and how they're targeting. indonesia, we've seen that, this isn't just about the terrorists piece muslim or christian, they're just going at people who
are not them. fair? >> yeah, as you said, it's the most populated muslim nation in the world. it's extraordinarily clear, different from al qaeda in this regard. they're very clear that all of these government, regards as apostate governments. at least in iraq back in the 2007 to 2009 period are more hesitant to go after target ppgs not more hesitant than we think about it because they made certain strategic decisions. but it's very clear that the islamic state consider other muslims to be targets. was clear long before the indonesia attacks. >> look, they kill more muslims than anyone else. france, who do you think was in the stad yum? who do you think was in the cafes? in the bataclan? they don't care whether or not they're targeting their own. the question becomes, what are
we learning, what are you seeing in your world about the attacks is it in any way advancing how to stop them? >> that's an excellent question. i can't say that we have, you know, a good answer at this point. there are certain choke points you can put your finger on. border security,s especially good intelligence on whose been over to the syria theater. there are a lot of syria coordinations of the individuals involved in the paris attack. secondly, it's very clear that there are failures in terms of known terrorists being able to transit past borders. that was the case in the europe attacks. third, i think mitigation measures is going to be an important thing, moving forward, given that we don't -- given that it's very hard, in an open society, which, you know, france and indonesia both are to some degree, to prevent attacks against soft targets like the bataclan, like the shopping district in jakarta, because the more you try to secure it, the more you defeat the very purpose
of that particular urban center. so mitigation, i think, is something that's going to be what a lot of discussion focuses on the next couple of years. >> and the concern is going up agency the level of fit indication goes down. this was a very sophisticated bomb. and it shows a lack of marksmanship with the weapons. thank you very much. mik? breaking news. at least three winning tickets in the powerball drawing. those winning tickets sold in florida, california, and ten tennessee. dozens of others wake up as millionaires because of smaller prizes. sara sidner is in chino hills, a 7-eleven. has anybody gone to sleep? >> reporter: not this family who
owns this sevin 7-eleven. they're from punjab. even the family is sheer. they will stay up and do their studies but they want to hang out with mom and dad who just won $1 million for selling one of those big tickets. i do want to mention what is happening with the other winners. because it's not just those who won that $1.6 billion jackpot. it is also those who will become millionaires because they got five of the six numbers. there are 12 in florida. and there are 12 here in california. and there's one extra one there in tennessee. so, 25 people, excluding the three that won the $1.6 billion together are going to become millionaires if they put those tickets in and check them. so that's a big thing a lot of people don't do. when it comes to the store
owners a lot of people will get money. we asked the store owner what he thought about his wins. >> i'm very, very happy, whoever bought some from here. i'm so thankful for my chino hills people, they support me all year long. >> reporter: totally excited about it. a sweet guy. he's actually been here cleaning up the store even after winning. michaela. >> such pride. and it makes you also realize how many lives are changed by just one ticket, right? again, we don't know if it was a pool of people that won that prize. we'll have to wait and see. sara, thank you so much. exciting moments there. coming up in the next half hour, we'll speak to the head of the powerball game with the record breaking draw. state television in tehran broadcasting disturbing video of ten u.s. sailors on their knees, hands on their heads after being taken custody.
one u.s. soldier apologizing for entering iranian waters. barbara starr, what do they say about this video? >> when that u.s. sailor was shown on iranian tv apologizing saying it was his mistake, his sailors' mistake for wandering in iranian waters. it got a lot of attention. was this apology made under duress. obviously it was. they were not in control of their fate. u.s. central command saying in part clearly this staged video exhibits a sailor making an apology in an unknown context as an effort to defuse a tense situation and protect his crew. the sailor who is also one of the commanders of the team also went on to talk about what he says happened. have a list ton what he had to say. >> the iranian patrol boat came out when we were having engine issues and had weapons drawn, so
we talked -- tried to talk to them until more boats came out and took us in. >> now, it must be said again, here we are seeing u.s. sailors on iranian tv under circumstances not under their control. so, we still don't really know what happened. we are told that even today, they are undergoing debriefings by u.s. military personnel. so far, one of the big questions, we have not heard from the pentagon. why is there no objection to these sailors being filmed for propaganda purposes and shown on tv around the world. chris. >> well, there's nothing to like about it, that's for sure. barbara, we are going to hear from the pentagon. let's remember, this got politicized in the beginning as iran taking soldiers. only later did facts come out about the sailors actually finding their way into iranian water. now, we're getting more facts now. we're going to get the first reaction from the pentagon spokesman next. what makes this simple salad the best simple salad ever?

it was about diplomacy. there was no danger. this wasn't about iran's active aggression. but then we have this video. it seems to shame the sailors, as weak. and then one of the sailors is on camera apologizing. was he under duress, was he not? what is actually going on here? we can get answers for you. the pentagon is now speaking out. peter cook is the press secretary for the pentagon, joins us now. help us understand, mr. cook. the early word was this was a sign of iranian aggression. they took these sailors. you say that's not the case. so what is the case? >> well, chris, i don't think we said explicitly that iran took these sailors. what we first told everyone and what we first learned is that we lost contacts with these sailors a are, these two crafts as they were doing a routine transit from kuwait to bahrain, part of
their normal operations in that part of the world. we lost contact with them and they came into contact with iranian hands. the bottom line, chris, these sailors are safely returned. we're still in the process of determining exactly how it was that these two crafts, these riverene boat it's made it into the area. was it nag gavigational factors? these sailors are going through this protocol, that means medical evaluations and then a formal debrief by navy investigators to determine watts happened. i can tell you, i know it's been some time. they're still going through the process. he went through the medical and psychological tests, if you will. and now, they're going through the process of formally debriefing the navy as to exactly what happened. >> are they all okay? >> chris, as far as we know,
medically, they are okay. but i can't provide you all the details we've received from those examinations. for obvious reasons. but the initial indication was that they were in good physical shape. there were ten sailors in all. again, the most important thing for us is that this was quickly resolved. and that these sailors are back in u.s. hands in a short matter of time. >> now, look, that's certainly the top line consideration but once that's cleared, you now get into the politics of it. to be very clear, mr. cook, i did not mean to suggest that the pentagon said that the iranians have taken them. that was the political play that this was a sign of iranian aggression. and as the facts came out it seems less like that. look, i'm not military trained by any stretch. but i do a lot of navigation on the water. i don't understand how it would be a mystery as to how the sailors went into the wrong group of waters. obviously, they would have sophisticated equipment that
would tell you pretty quickly how this happened. why don't you know? >> well, chris, again, this is part of the investigation that's going to be uncovered. was there a mechanical issue? was there a navigational issue? was there something that prevented them from maintaining the course that they had original plotted, that they planned to take, within the gulf region. again, these craft operate in that part of the world all the time. they come in contact with iranian ships and the iranian navy on a fairly regular basis. this clearly was a different circumstance. they went into iranian territorial waters. we still needed to determine exactly why. and, again, this was a circumstance which had it not been for the quick diplomatic work of secretary of state john kerry may have played out differentl they're back in u.s. hands now. we're trying to answer those difficult questions as we speak. >> secretary made a point saying a few years ago, it wouldn't have happened this way. i wouldn't have been able to get
my counterpart in iran on the phone four or five times. it wouldn't have been resolved this quickly. and who knows it if would have been resolved like this. fair point. but on the other guy, you have these guys on camera, shaming them with their hands over their head. you have an american soldier giving an explanation and apologizing saying it was a mistake to iranian media or whoever was taking that. what do you make of those situations? certainly not friendly, iran is not a friend, but is that an act of aggression? >> well, chris, part of our investigation as well will be to find out exactly what happened to the sailors while detained and the circumstances surrounding that individual is one of the situations we want to determine. what were the conditions. what were the circumstances like. what else was happening in that room when the video was shot. those are intent of those comments. these are again, questions, that
we'll only know once we have a full debriefing with all ten of the sailors, not only how they got in the situation in the first place. but also the conduct of the iranians once they were put in that situation. again, the iranians did honor the assurances that they provided to the secretary of state. they conveyed to the secretary of defense that they would be returned in a short amount of time. and that's what happened here. but we do have questions about what happened to the sailors in the first place to get into this situation. and again, importantly, what happened to them while they were deta detained. >> that's a point of criticism, people say you know enough already to be more outspoken and more outraged to having american soldiers with their hands over their heads if they're supposed to be on good terms with the united states, and that is a message of weakness bit united states? >> well, chris, we have concerns of what we see in that video but
we have to find out exactly what took lacplace there. those sailors will tell us exactly what happened. the most important thing is the safety of those sailors i can assure you that the u.s. military when we first lost contact with them did everything at that time to try and determine what happened. try to recover those sailors. they were recovered in a short amount of time, thanks again to the solid work to the the secretary of state. the diplomatic efforts that ensued. this is a place in the world. this is a dangerous part of the world, chris, where we're going to continue to operate on a daily basis. these kinds of encounters. we want to do everything we can do avoid these kind of things in the future. we're going to learn from this. we're going to find out exactly what happened to those sailors, both getting into the situation in the first play and what happened behind the scenes as well. >> appreciate you being on, mr. cook. there was criticism how long it
would take the pentagon to talk about it. but it's great to hear that the sailors are okay. and we await further information. thank you, sir. >> you bet. to politics, fresh meat for detractors of ted cruz. unreported loans from two big banks, including the bank that this wife works for. what effect will this have on his run for the presidency? your path to retirement may not always be clear. but at t. rowe price, we can help guide your retirement savings. so wherever your retirement journey takes you, we can help you reach your goals. call us or your advisor t. rowe price. invest with confidence. ♪ (cell phone rings) where are you? well the squirrels are back in the attic.

okay. now to a developing campaign story. ted cruz received almost $1 million in low-interest loans from banks, including goldman sachs where his wife workings. failing to disclose that to federal election officials. joining us now is cnn political commentator of "smerconish," michael smerconish. good morning, michael. >> good morning. >> how big of a deal do you think this is almost $1 million in loans. at least he says he's disclosed it many times but the s.e.c. says not so fast? >> right, it's a disclosure
issue. he should have revealed. there's a legitimate purpose behind this disclosure requirement. and that is, the public has a right to know whether there's a cozy relationship between whomever is providing the loan and the candidate. and i think that gets to the real issue for cruz which is one of authenticity. as you made reference before the break he likes to rail against donald trump and those quote/unquote new york values. he's also someone who has gone after quote/unquote crony capitalism. so i think it goes to the heart of who he is. now, for his part, i expect today you're going to hear more this is an attack from the liberal "the new york times." and in some supporters who support ted cruz that will play very well. >> well, this is a little reflection what we saw with the ethanol. there's an inconsistency. that's what happens, you get more scrutiny. i do think we have to be careful, low-interest loans. there is no suggestion that the loan was submarket. or that this was an artificial rate. and, yes, one was from the bank
where his wife is. but again, you know, these suggestions can sound nefarious but there's no allegation of that. nobody is saying it's illegal. he is saying he disclosed it plenty. it goes to the political fallout, nothing more substantial from that. >> that's why i set from the get-go, it's not a legality issue. it's a disclosure. a filing issue he may be able to discount that. but, chris i think it does undercut the narrative. he did tell in the 2012 cycle an this cycle as well. he tells a heartwarming story saying, honey, i need to liquidate, is that okay with you. it's a little different than saying we're going to your employer and get upwards of $9 conditi $60,000 in the form of a loan. that's a little different. >> something is going on with ted cruz, yesterday, the des moines register released a new poll and shows his numbers have
softened. back then, 31% in iowa. today, 25%. do you think it's the questions about his eligibility that donald trump has raised? what do you see behind those numbers? >> i do, in part. and what i'm saying is belied by the internals. because when you go to the internals, in several of these polls, people are saying, in iowa, no, that's not a big issue to me. in fact, 85%, the last figure that i saw of individuals who say they really don't think that's significant. but maybe we're not asking the question in the right way. maybe it's not that they're troubled about his birth in canada. but that trump is being effective again, because he did this relative to president obama, as painting an opponent as an other. in other words, alisyn, he's not one of us. he's something different than those of us who were born in the united states. i really don't think it's about disqualifying ted cruz. i think it's very similar to when trump said, you know, not too many evangelicals have come from cuba. what did he mean by that?
i think i know what he means. >> what's interest for ted cruz, again, another very, very bright guy. he is politically -- what's happening to him is being called hoisting him on his known petard. he's saying that's being you've by him by trump who plays by looser rules than ordinary politicians do. he hasn't figured out how to come back with it. couldn't that be enough to move the needle in iowa? his defense of it himself has taken him off offense. >> in comparison to trump, i mean, had he is absolutely the more sedate, the more mundane of the two. as compared to anybody else on that stage, you'd say that cruz is the outlier. it sets the stage, i think, for the debate tonight. because the two of them will have to do battle over this. to your point, chris, i can't help but wonder if ted cruz is
regretting having played nice with the donald you the way up until now because that strategy in the end may not pay off for him. i'll just underscore this if i might, among those most likely to come out to vote in the iowa caucus because this is much different than sitting at home in your barkco lounger, you've got to have skin in the game. among the potentials, it's donald trump's to lose. does trump have ground game? we're going to find out. that's the real issue for him. >> very quickly, michael, nikki haley is considered a rising star in south carolina. now, she, too, is in the cross hairs of trump for what she said at the state of the union response. is this good for nikki haley? bad for nikki haleyy. >> i think it's good for nikki haley long terms in terms of her standing in the party and the national appeal. the problem for donald trump, this is the third state that's going to cast its ballots and
you don't want to be at crosshairs with the governor of that state. i said here on cnn, the very night of the state of the union, how remarkable that the president took shots at the republican front-runner. and then in the rebuttal, the response, so, too, did the individual nikki haley who was offering that speech. and here's my point, the members of congress who are republicans, i think that the republican side of the aisle was just fine with what barack obama sand nikki haley had to say about their front-runner. that's really a stunning indictment of where this entire thing stands. he's so trump at odds with the establishment class. >> it gets curiouser and curiouser, michael smerconish, great to see you. coming up, we'll going to talk with senator rand paul about why he's skipping the debate. did flirtatious text messages lead to the cam tour of
down the mexican drug lord? new details on how officials were able to recapture el chapo who is now apparently being moved from jail cell to jail cell to avoid an escape. joining us is ambassador tony garza. ambassador, thanks so much for joining us. >> michaela, good morning. >> first of all, we understand that el chapo is since being locked up in the prison he very escaped from, we understand they're going from lengths as i mentioned moving him from jail cell to jail cell to avoid escape this time. how confident do you feel that he won't? >> well, actually, in his case, i think quite confident. as you know, chapo guzman was one of the most notorious drug leaders in the world. when he escaped it was a great
embarrassment to the mexican government. i think since that time, you've seen a tremendous amount of resources commit odd his recapture. having recaptured him will assure his extradition to the united states, they're going to do everything possible to make sure he stays in that jail. in the quake of that escape, there been exhaustive investigation, there's been a change in personnel, a change in protocols in which he'll be held. and i think this world recognizes they've got to hold him until the extradition proceedings in this country are complete and he can be extrad e extradited to the united states for prosecution. >> one of the details we're learning they have been tracking sean penn's interaction with this soap actress kate dell castillo, brung before he met up in mexico are you surprised at
that level of tracking and intelligence? >> no, not really. we've enjoyed a basic history of cooperation and support, both ways. the united states law enforcement efforts working closely with our mexican counterparts and vice versa. and when you have a transnational organization like the sinaloa cartel, it's necessary that it doesn't surprise me that there have been exchanges of intelligence, and mutual support but ultimately this appears to be a mexican operation. they took the lead in recapturing him. to the extent we provided support it was primarily on the intelligence side. ultimately this is the only way these things can be effective in borders. >> and the mexican officials have released text messages that
guzeman and del castillo has said. i haven't been able to sleep since i saw you. i'm very excited about our story. it's true. el chapo said let me tell you that i'm more excited about you than the story, my friend. she says, ha, ha, ha knowing that makes me really glad. you make me blush. sounds like a text wean teenagers. what do you make of the drug lord's apparent infatuation with the starlet? >> well, i think there's been a great deal of theater, hollywood, surrounding this. you know, to listen to the conversations on the street here in mexico, it was, you know, boy wants girl. girl wants movie. "rolling stone" wants magazine sales, and penn wants his picture with another latin american thug. but i think really it's a bit more duplicated than that. and we have -- the mexicans what they would really like to see
people focus on is beyond receipt cthe recapture, beyond the extradition, what do the united states focus on the rule of law, creating environment where the rules can be put in place and there be economic growth. so, i think the extent of this discussion about the interview, the actress, mr. penn, "rolling stone" has detracted from the real focus and rule of law of security in this country, mexicans are a bit frustrated. >> there's a whole lot of hollywood but you're right, a lot of play in here. thanks for joining us ambassador tony garzgarza. back to politics. a virtual tie in iowa, hillary clinton and bernie sanders. why? and what does this mean for overall chances for these two? is hillary clinton a prohibitive favorite anymore? next.

(whispers) now hide-and-seek time can also be catch-up-on-my-shows time. here i come! can't find you anywhere! don't settle for u-verse. x1 from xfinity will change the way you experience tv. we have differences on guns, on taxes, on healthcare. and i think people should have that information before they go to the caucus or the primary. >> well hillary clinton has begun going after bernie sanders
record. ads yet another poll in iowa shows sanders in a virtual tie in the hawk eye state. could he take the first two contests? >> are you surprised how tight a race this has become between clinton and sanders? >> i'm never surprised by anything when it comes to elections. >> are you truly not surprised that hillary clinton, who was seen as the run away favorite is now neck and neck in fact bernie sanders is now beating her in some polls. >> as the electorate pays attention, the polls tighten and that is why it is important for the candidate to be on the ground and talking about rel ideas and real solutions. at least secretary clinton, governor o'malley and senator
sanders are talking about how to improve people's lives as to the rhetoric between trump and cruz. >> she says sanders has the wrong position on taxesen. on guns. do you think that by talking about this and going after him in that way it will help her numb numbers? >> i think it is important to continue to talk about the differences from a policy perspective. that is the contrast americans want to see. as opposed to see what ted cruz and donald trump are doing to see who can scare voters more or who can out speak the competition. that is not what the americans want to see. >> you are a member of the congressional hispanic caucus, and your chair person has come out and endorsed clinton. what are you waiting for is this. >> i just haven't. i think there is plenty of time and maybe we'll get a chance to come back and visit with you again and make make the
announcement but right now we're trying to impact on the donald cruz or the -- a donald trump or the ted cruz. so to see the impact that would have across america. >> we appreciate you come back but what are you waiting for to hear them say? >> not necessarily anything. i've been concentrating efforts on making sure that we're able to pick up seats across america and show the contrast between republicans and democrats and talk about those ideas that people really have. >> it's ban boon to fund raising for sanders. thanks team clinton, as of now we are 1.4 million raised since yesterday when the panic attacks began. we've gotten 47 thousand contributions. even for our people-powered campaign, this is pretty darn
impressive. so there is money out there. and people want to get it to whoever they think is winner is going to be. and sometimes -- it is not an attack. but sometimes going after each other ends up having that result. >> again, i think the real difference between bernie sanders and hillary clinton and governor o'malley vb an exchange of ideas on differences of policy as opposed to donald trump and ted cruz and rubio and even governor hale weighing in now to talk about the differences and in2350ifighting. there is not a person that donald trump hasn't attacked yet. and if you haven't been attacked, don't worry, it is coming. >> are you seeing down ticket as they say, lower than the presidential race, the donald trump effect? the effect that he's having on democratic candidates and whether or not there is a grass roots mobilization a gal vanization of people who want to kol out for them because of donald trump. >> i'll answer that the way a
pollster did. he said donald trump would have a horrific impact on republican's down ballot and when pall ryan asked who would be worse ted cruz or donald trump and then he went on to say ted cruz would be even worse than donald trump. not only did governor haley admit this yesterday. she even knows donald trump is bad for republicans down ballot. >> and you're evidence of that. >> absolutely. you are seeing more and more voters pay more attention. getting galvanized. excitement in the country in new york, across the country, more than ted trump and donald cruz continue to fight with one another we're just going to continue to see this dynamic. we're starting to confuse the names. they look their they are the same person anymore. and as they try to compete with one another. and that is better for democrats up and down the ballot and it is bad for house republicans.
>> do you think ted cruz is eligible to be president? >> they are going continue the infighting we'll see what happens i hope that donald trump and ted cruz try to find a way to talk about ideas and solutions as opposed to this continued bickering that we're seeing and i'm sure we're going to see a lot of it tonight. >> thanks for being here. we're following a lot of news so let's get to it. a series of coordinated attacks in jakarta. >> isis has a small franchise in southeast asia. >> ted cruz. he's been really u really nice. other than the last couple of days get a little testy. >> mr. trump and other candidates being conserved that the -- >> the state of the union confirms one thing. we're ready for a new president. >> a largest lottery prize in history will be split at least three ways.
>> this is the luckiest machine on the planet. good morning. welcome to your new day. we have two breaking stories this morning. the good news, three winning tickets that historic powerball jackpot. worth $1.6 billion. we're going to tell you which states are now home to the newest members of the 1% club. we also have another breaking story this morning that is very very grave. an isis anilted news agency claiming a terror group carried out this morning's coordinated attacks in jakarta. targeting a police station and a starbuck's cafe, sending people running for their lives. this cell phone video taken from a nearby office building. people running through the streets of jakarta. the world's largest muslim
population is in this country. >> let's get to kathy in jakarta for us. >> reporter: certainly authorities here new there was some terror threat but they for a very long time didn't think that existing groups were capable of launching another one such as this. it is clear now from information from the police that attacks were coordinated, were well planned and well-funded. it also showed the capability as i said earlier authorities didn't think groups here had. again that will now lead them for sure to investigating links to groups or individuals here who have -- may have pledged their allegiance to isis, for example. and the authorities told us earlier that they are now on a man hunt for more suspects. five of attackers were killed today. but again 245i used ten bombs.
there were guns and pistols there. also another alarming thing is that they were targeting westerners. something that hasn't happened here for the past six years. and certainly the president has said that the -- that everything needs to be done with authorities to go after the groups responsible for this attack in jakarta. >> all right cathy. thank you very much. let's get to somebody right now who witnessed the attacks. on the phone is an american, jeremy douglas, a representative with the u.n. office on drugs and crime. jeremy how are you? how are the people who you are with there? let's start with that? >> i'm fine t people i was with are fine. i was actually pulling into the united nations building. we have an office here if jakarta. and i was pulling in from the back thankfully when the first bomb went off. i didn't hear it because i was behind the building in the
vehicle maybe a few hundred meters a way i and as we came into the front and i got out the second suicide bomb wept went off. and at that point we knew we had a big problem on our hands so we rushed into the building and another small bomb. and we got up to the office and there was a series of i think three more and some small arms fire. so it was a pretty hectic scene right in front of our office. >> we're told that it lasted a lock time. what did it feel like to you. >> it felt really long. i would say a good twenty minutes. i must say the police did respond pretty quickly. good for them for doing that. but it was prolonged. you can definitely hear exchange of fire. so it was a pretty big scene. yeah these guys were well prepared. >> were you able to see any of
the terrorists? and what you do make of the reports so far that almost all of the fatalities were the actual terrorists and that this wasn't a much more deadly effort? >> well i think we're lucky it wasn't more deadly. two suicide bombers and guys who were armed and other bombs. in the area of jakarta where this is it could have been much worse frankly. i think we're lucky that it wasn't that bad. it's the target they went for is right in a busy intersection and it was a starbuck's, which would be pretty prominent for foreigners. so i think it's obvious why they went to that particular location. >> now obviously they are not just experts but any observer is
noticing this looks and feels like what e we saw in paris in november. did that strike you at any point? >> yeah, that thought kwuz going through my head. if it can happen in paris, it can happen here. it can happen pretty much anywhere. and this country does have an -- [inaudible] foreign fighters who have gone to the middle east. and there is a lot of sympathizer groups active in the region. this is obviously something that goes into your head which is this going to be bigger? and thankfully it wasn't that big of an event. sadly some people were killed and others were badly injured but it could have been much bigger. >>, you know, back in the united states there is a big wrestling match about how we identify who the threat is. terrorists, muslims, the con inflation of the two here. very different situation where you are in indonesia. that is the largest muslim population on the face of the
earth. some 250 plus million people there. what is the feel on the ground there about how muslims are being targeted and who the enemy is? >> well, you know, this country is a very moderate country generally. we obviously have people like you have anywhere in the world that are a little unhinged and they are evil. so there is this element. [inaudible] -- are great people and it is really sad to see what happened here today because the country is really doing well and they are a lot better than this. >> thank you for wise words for the observations and good to hear you and everyone around you were okay. thank you. more breaking news of a much happier variety.
the other top story if you are heading to work this morning, chances are you are not one of the big powerball winners. three tickets sold in the report 1$1.6 billion drawing. they were sold in california, florida and tennessee. and there is more good news. there are also dozens of other instant millionaires across the country. cnn's sarah is outside in chino hills, california. what is the scene there? >> reporter: a few hours ago this place was a mad house. there were dozens of people who came out from the community. they didn't know anybody. i they just came here because they were so excited that a store in their hometown was one of the stores that sold a ticket. they were everywhere. cheering. also for the owner here who because he sold the winning ticket is now going to get a million dollars. and we talked to him a little about the crowds and his new
winnings. >> i'm very, very happy. whoever person one from here. and i'm so thankful for my chi no hill people. they support me all yearlong. >> he was a favorite among the crowd. people cheered for him all night long. we should also mention if you have one of those tickets and you know you didn't win the big jackpot, you should go and check it. really check it. there are a lot of people who don't do that. and at least 25 people in both california, tennessee and in florida, 25 across the country actually will be millionaires. they will win the one million dollar prize and in two states a two million prize. so check those tickets. it is worth it. >> here is if other thing. we love our colleague asks all. but if you are in a pool make sure you put extra eyes on those pool tickets you. can't rely on one person to double check the numbers.
i've learned that the hard way. we were sitting on $4. okay? we turn now to the chair of the powerball group and skpektive director of the texas lottery. gary grief. i'm sure the phone has been ringing off the hook since we spoke. what have you learned since we last spoke? any new details? >> yes. indeed we've learned the location that sold the winning ticket in florida is a publix store located in melbourne beach florida. i expect that same excitement to start building in melbourne beach florida at that publix. we're very excited for them. >> i've got a camera headed there. we haven't seen a winner since early november. are you surprised that it took
this much energy? there was almost this momentum that was palpable in the nation. >> that is the great thing about the powerball game. you never know if you will get a winner on the first roll or if 20th like last night. that is what makes it so unique for players to know that no matter where they live from coast to coast, purchasing just one ticket gives them the same chance of winning as anybody else who might be buying one. >> levels out the playing field. >> we know there were changes to the rules in october and it made it a little harder to get the jackpot. but also we understand that the powerball, as we've been learning all morning, the powerball plays out all sorts of smaller price prizes. the odds ever winning any prize are actually better now. 1 in 15. before it was something like 1 in 32. is that correct? >> the odds now of winning any prize are 1 in 25 and we've been
talking all morning about the three winners who woke up to be multiple nares. well there are 81 others across the country who woke up with at least a prize of 1 million dollars. eight of those people actually won $2 million. so there are lots of millionaires sprouting up around the united states. >> and that is not accounting for the fact that so often office pool, groups of people, workers, coworkers put together money to buy tickets. we could be sitting on multiple groups of winners. we also know as the jackpot grows -- and again this was a history making, record setting jackpot. as the jackpot grows, so too does the money that you are able to help other organizations with. is that true? >> yes. that is the wonderful fact that is sometimes lost on people, mila. about 40 cents of every dollar spent on powerball goes right back to good causes like public education. college scholarships, vet erps, etc. during this jackpot roll since
last november we've sold 3.2 billion dollars of powerball tickets. of that amount more than 1.2 billion dollars is going directly to public education, veterans, college scholarships. it is a great win for the entire country. >> gary, i don't know how long you have worked for the association. did you ever imagination it would get to nearly $1.6 billion. >> i've been in the industry 24 years and i've seen the days when a $50 million jackpot would call out lot toe fever. i never thought i'd see the day where it would be almost 1.6 billion dollars. >> gary grief. thanks so much for joining us. what an exciting day. >> all right mic it is getting nasty in politics once again. ted cruz and donald trump clashing. i wonder what they are going to
say tonight? and cruz has another controversy. it turns out he did not reveal to the fec hundreds of thousands of dollars in loans in 2012 during his run for the senate. we have cnn's sarah murray live in charleston, south carolina. what are the facts and what are the impimplications. >> donald trump has been questioning whether truz is even eligible to run for president because he was born in canada and cruise over the last couple of days has been swiping back hard saying trump embodies new york values suggesting he's too cozy with democrats and cruz suggesting he would be a stronger candidate in the general election. and donald trump says he's noticed ted cruz has been getting a testy. >> really really nice other the last couple of days getting a little testy. i've been waiting. i've been waiting. got a little problem. you know, you got make sure you
can run. a lot of lawyers say you can't run if you do that. you can't be born in canada. you can't be a canadian citizen. >> now, right f that, trump says he expects the citizenship issue will come up tonight but it is unclear if he's going bring it up or if he's going to leave it to the moderators. the cruz camp says they are ready for anything. one thing they may have to contend with is questions of hundreds of thousands of dollars of loans and that he failed to disclose properly. >> chances are both of those things will come up. thanks for that preview. we have sad breaking news in the entertainment world. legendary british actor allen rickman has died after a brief battle with cancer. best known for movies like "die hard," robinhood prince of thieves, love actually and the harry potter films. >> if anyone here has any
knowledge of mr. potter's movements this evening. i invite them to step forward. >> professor sn arape. >> i know. >> my goodness. we just lost david bowie at 69 following a brief fight with cancer and now allen rickman. so many of was thinking about our -- >> and he had -- something that sometimes great actors but certainly he was by all accounts struggle with. when they become popular with something that doesn't capture the craft as much as other movies and he said a great thing. when i'm 80 and silting in hi rocking chair i will be reading harry potter and my grand kids.
unfortunately he won't get to live that but our thoughts with him today. >> another great one. we have a guest here today. rand paul is in our green room. he is not going to be at tonight's debate on fox. he says he's being snubbed. so what do we think? we're going to ask him what he thinks about all of this. next. in new york state, we believe tomorrow starts today. all across the state the economy is growing, with creative new business incentives, and the lowest taxes in decades, attracting the talent and companies of tomorrow. like in the hudson valley, with world class biotech. and on long island, where great universities are creating next generation technologies. let us help grow your company's tomorrow, today at business.ny.gov
republican presidential candidates will debate again tonight but there will be a conspicuous absence. senator rand paul will not be there. he's boycotting the event after being bumped to the undercard debate. fox business network is basing its decision on the latest polls but senator paul says they are leaving out key poll and senator paul joins us here on "new day." are you still fighting this at hour. >> i this i the republican party and media are making a big mistake by pushing me out of
debate because i think i have a different voice. a unique voice in the party and i think as mistake not to have me in. and i think actually we meet the criteria. >> but how is the republican party pushing you out? >> actually we did make the cut. if you lose the des moines register poll we do make the cut. and it was performed during the defined window. >> this was a des moines register poll and it came out yesterday. i shows you in fifth place. you are at 5%. this is the one you are hanging your hat on. but it wasn't released within the window and didn't fox say it has to be conducted and released -- >> sounds like of like a technicality when we're talking about the national campaign. we've raised $25 million. doing this for two years. we have a thousand precincts in iowa. people have to realize that what the media is doing here is predecidiing an election or
trying to predecide an election. what do you think the liberty voters are thinking now? that the republican party in league with one of the media networks is saying we're not going let the liberty candidate on the stage. >> do you blame the rnc or fox. >> i think both together. the rnc made the rules and the dictated the rules to the networks. but if if republican party wants to be bigger the need to not be excluding the one voice i'm the one person on the stake saying the -- instead of saying we're going o have a only one single voice and exclude the others it is a big. >> might you still make the main stage? >> we're making the argument but we haven't heard anything directly. >> i understand your longic. you have laid out your case here but i don't your math. and here is why. you at your campaign rallies are getting what? about 300 people, several
hundred people a pop. >> we're actually getting bigger crowds actually than almost anyone than donald trump. >> say even a thousand. even that the the average of the viewer ship is 6 million people. you could reach six million potential voters tonight so why not go for it. >> i think people in the media misunderstand this. it isn't about viewership. it is about being designated as part of people who aren't going to win. there is only one debate. let's be honest about this. there is only one debate and the thing is there is no equivalent. would you take a spot at 3:00 a.m. versus your 9:00 a.m. or 7:00 a.m. they aren't the same and we are kidding ourselves and we don't even describe them as the same. so what it is. >> -- [inaudible]. >> -- is about predefining the race. we have not had one vote yet and everybody is going crazy like donald trump has won the race already. and i think as mistake and a
disenfranchises the voters of iowa or new hampshire. not one vote has been cast and we're already deciding who can participant? big mistake. >> chris christie famously said put a podium? are and i'll show up. and he talks about how he believes you're making a mistake. here is chris christie on what he thinks about your decision. listen to this. >> i think as the mistake on his part. i think if you are invited to debate and you are a serious candidate, you should debate. whether that debate is at 7:00 at night or 9:00. the american people don't care. >> the american people don't care what time he was on. >> this isn't the first time chris christie would be wrong about something. wrong about surveillance, wrong about the war, wrong about getting us involved in a another war in the middle east so i don't place a lot of stock in christie's opinion.
>> back to the math. six million potential voters. >> the problem isn't -- and this is misunderstood by people in the media. you don't understand that if you are designated as someone who is not in contention, that is very disruptive to a campaign three weeks out. we don't consider that we have a second tier campaign. and we're not going to announce to the american people that we are no longer in contention. because we absolutely are in contention. we have raised $25 million. we have announced more precinct chairs in iowa than any other candidate has so far. we have a first tier campaign and we can't accept an artificial designation by the media and by the party and it is really showing does the party want to be bigger. does the party want the liberty movement in the republican party? do they want voices saying intervention in the middle east has made us less safe and not more safe. there is not a zipgs at all in the polling between bush,
kasich, all of these in third and fourth and fifth currently there is not one bit of mathematical distinction. so if you tell me oh you are scoring 5.8 and somebody scored 6.2 therefore we're going tell the american people you are in a second class or underclass, that is completely utterly artificial and unfair. >> so you are sure that the outcome, the effect of you not showing up won't seem that you have a bad attitude or being petulant, that you are sure this is a winning strategy somehow. >> nobody know what is the future holds but we do know it is a mistake and our campaign realizes it is a mistake to let the media or the party predecide who has a chance and who doesn't have a chance. we're going to take our message directly to the people. i'll be in iowa and new hampshire this weekend. and tonight we're going to have a national hall and all of america can turn their tv off if they want and listen to an alternative voice. >> let's talk about the eligibility of your rivals, ted
cruz. do you think he's eligible to be president. >> i think the real question is do democrats? and will they challenge? i think they will. troub extraordinary to have a nominee or president not born in the united states. he would be the first. democrats will bring this up and it has never been decided by the courts. we don't know yet but it is not something i'm challenging but i think it is certainly something democrats are challenge. >> so you agree with donald trump on this one. >> i agree with a lot of people that say it's been undecided. the courts have decided if you were born in canada and your mom was a citizen you are a citizen but the constitution has these unusual words that say natural-born citizen. >> of course john mccain was born in panama on a military ways. >> the courts decided if you are born in a u.s. territory you are a u.s. citizen. the courts have decided that. they have not decided that if you were born in a foreign country whether or not you are a
natural born citizen. it just hasn't been decided. >> ten u.s. sailors in iranian custody very briefly will and then this video came out of them on their knees, hands behind their heads and one of them even apologized. let me play a moment of that apology. >> it was a mistake that was our fault. and we apologize. for our mistake. it was a misunderstanding. we did not mean to go into iranian territorial water. >> the iranian behavior was fantastic while we were here. we thank you very much for your hospitality and your assistance. >> what do you think went on there. >> >> it goes against the geneva convention to put soldiers on tv, prisoners of war on tv and use them as publicity pawns. >> do you think that was under dursz. >> it's always under duress. you are under duress if you are captured. that is why the geneva convention says you are not supposed to this ever.
you are supposed to put captured soldiers forth as publicity pawns so this is an indication that iran still feels they can play games with the united states. the good news is the situation did diffuse. i so i think it is one reason we do want someone who is a commander in chief who is about a hot head and oh i'm going to go blow up teheran because of this insult. we need to be weary of intervention in the middle east but we also want a leader, not someone like donald trump who says oh i think our problem is we have not been willing enough to use our nuclear weapons. i think we need some sort of a temperament from a leader from someone not eager to get involved in war. >> appreciate you being with us on "new day." thanks so much for being here. let's get to chris. >> we are just moments from a big reveal from hollywood. the nominations from the academy
