tv CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield CNN January 30, 2016 11:00am-11:31am PST
next hour to discuss the details. one of the three was captured yesterday, and police said he was cooperating in the search for the other two. cnn legal analyst and criminal defense attorney joey jackson is with us now on the phone. in your view, joey, again, we're waiting for details, do you believe that the apprehension of one may have helped lead to the capture of the other two? >> it certainly may have, fredricka. good to be with you. first and foremost, we can talk about the breakdowns that led to the actual escape, but a think it's important also to give credit to the authorities for securing public safety, ensuring they were apprehended and are back in custody and now i think it will move to the investigative stage to find out exactly what happened. what protocols or what have you were violated, what, if any, assistance did they get and hold them accountable for having escaped in the first place. i'm sure we'll learn a lot from the press conference, well, as much as authorities will share
with us at this point in time, but i think moving forward it will really assist them in shoring up whatever security breaches there were and certainly make the public a lot more calm knowing that they're back behind bars and in custody at this point. >> joey, we do understand that somewhere within the last week since their break from prison that one accused of stealing a car and all three may have been living in a van for a period of time, until duong decided to approach some santa ana residents and say i'm ready to turn myself in. in a case like that, would he have been offered maybe potentially a plea deal in his cooperation to try to help locate the other two? >> i think what certainly hap n happens is whenever you have someone who has knowledge, potential knowledge of another fuv t fugitives, authorities are more inclined to cut them deals to get the information they need to move forward. how binding that will ultimately
be is another question. obviously, there's a lot of pressure on authorities when you have escapees out there that could do anything to a public that is certainly, you know, frightened. so i think when you're first one and offering information, it's a good time to let authorities know what you know, because they'll take it easy on you in the long run. >> and, of course, the investigation is really in its infancy. still to be determined whether there was an inside job or whether this was a clean break by these inmates, but we do understand that a jail teacher was arrested on charges of accessory to a felony. she apparently provided the inmates with an image of the entire jail complex. she denies giving them tools, but what other charges might she potentially face, if she did provide this image that helped lead to their escape? >> sure, fredricka. you know, i think, you talk about the one, english as a
second language, that teacher that was assisting there. i think whenever you have someone who's involved at the outset, they're really engaged in a couple of things. one is a conspiracy. any agreement you engage in with another person to commit a criminal act and acting as a n conspira conspiracy, obstruction of justice, hindering prosecution, a whole series of charges she's facing and will certainly be in a world of hurt moving forward, but it will be predicated upon what she knew, when she knew it and did she -- what type of material assistance did she provide? i'd be anxious to know what type of defense she has in terns of any coercion to her, bodily threats to her or exactly what led to her participation in this alleged criminal enterprise of getting them escaped. >> joey jackson, thanks for being with us. appreciate it. >> a pleasure. take care. now to the countdown to the
first votes of the 2016 presidential election happening in just two days at the iowa caucuses. this hour all of the candidates are fanned out across iowa in a last-minute push to get voters on their side before the caucuses. you're about to see live pictures of republican stumping right now. there you see jeb bush and john kasich, who just picked up an endorsement, kasich did, from the "new york times" editorial board, and he's in keen, new hampshire, actually today. and jeb bush is in clear lake, iowa. on the democratic side, hillary clinton is stumping with her daughter chelsea and along with mark and gabby giffords. clinton's husband is expected to also -- make an appearance in iowa falls, a thnd later at this hour, bernie sanders, hosts his second rally of the day. this one in charles city, iowa. right there. all right. our john berman is there in des moines, iowa, with more on what
these next two days are going to look like. john? >> reporter: they are going to look like they do right now which is all the candidates out. i want to go right to ames in iowa right now, where gabby giffords, mark kelly, onstage with hillary clinton. let's take a look. >> hillary is top. hillary is courageous. she will fight to make our [ inaudible ] safer. in the white house she will stand up to the gun lobby. that's why i'm voting for hillary. [ applause ] speaking is hard for me, but january -- come january, i want to say these two words. madam president. [ applause ]
because what you just heard and saw on this stage here at the university is such a testament to the human spirit, to courage, to a sense of mission, and when i think about what we have to do as our country, i think it does take courage, and it takes a sense of mission. and we are so fortunate to have two people who can inspire us every single day. because of who they are and what they stand for, what they have done in their lives and what they are doing. i really agree so much with t m them -- [ applause ] -- that it is -- it is time, my friends, to stand up for common sense gun safety measures, to
stand up against the gun lobby. and to turn that into a voting issue. the other side does, and so even though the vast majority of americans and gun owners agree with gabby and mark's common sense approach, they agree with moms, demand action, they agree with gun sense voters' agenda. they vote on many things whereas those who oppose this mission that gabby and mark are leading, they vote only on one issue, and that is how they end up intimidating members of congress and others. the facts cry out for action. on average, 90 people a day die from gun violence.
that's 33,000 people a year in our country. homicides, suicides and tragic avoidable accidents. and we've got to take action, because in addition to all those who are killed there are many, many who are injured. i have met too many of these victims and their families. i have been in too many rooms where you are at a loss for words. taking the hand of a -- a mother who sent her 6-year-old child off to elementary school and got the worst call any mother could ever get. that her child and others had been murdered. of the faces of those churchgoers and in charleston
who were at bible study when a young man filled with anger and hatred and racism came in, sat with them during the bible study, then pulled out the gun. he should not have been able to buy. and killed nine of them. >> all right. we just saw a very powerful moment onstage in ames, iowa. gabriele, giffords, five years ago shot in her hometown in arizona. it has been a long recovery. she just appeared onstage and said the two words she wants to hear next january are "madam president." a powerful endorsement a powerful political endorsement but outside of politics it was wonderful to see gabriel giffords looking and sounding so great after five years. hillary clinton in iowa right now. she'll be talking for some time. donald trump getting ready to
speak, his plane due to land there. you can look at live pictures right now. the plane is going to pull up right behind that lectern in just a few minutes. we'll take you there, live. if you need advice for your business, legalzoom has your back. our trusted network of attorneys has provided guidance to over 100,000 people just like you. visit legalzoom today. the legal help you can count on. legalzoom. legal help is here. hey pal? you ready? can you pick me up at 6:30? ah...

the possibility of a flare swas almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, control is possible.

iowa. looking at a live picture there. someone at the lectern getting the people ready in the crowd to see donald trump. we expect to see him any minute and will take you there any second so stand by. that's dubuque. earlier in cedar rapid, governor chris christie was on the stump and he spoke to our phil mattingly there and had words, phil, for senator marco rubio not altogether nice. phil? >> reporter: not altogether nice to say the least. he said marco rubia was essentially a republican barack obama. continuing a stream of attacks that these two have had going back and forth with one another for a couple weeks. john, an interesting fact that chris christie is even on the ground here in iowa. new hampshire is the state where chris christie needs to succeed, but when i was talking to him i asked, is there a secret sauce here? he said the six-term governor, terry branstad, has a lot of branstad people on his team, and he thinks that's going to make a difference. take a listen.
>> i hope it means really good things. i've put together a great group. a group that has won six state-wide elections for terry branstad as governor, so we have his former chief of staff, two former campaign managers running our operation here. so we're hopeful we're going to turn that into really good turnout monday night and a good result. >> reporter: any chance you could swing the governor's endorsement? >> the governor's been very clear the fact he would remain neutral in this race. i'm his friend we agree on most issues and i'm happy to have his friendship but let the governor speak for himself on that one. >> reporter: three weeks ago, how would you define success. too soon. ask me in three weeks? >> being among the governors. if i'm first among the governors in iowa or new hampshire, that's been a successful first two contests for me and we move on to south carolina. >> reporter: so, john, as you hear there, chris christie's not trying to win here, not even try
to win in new hampshire but wants to beat john kasich and jeb bush. i asked him in that interview whether or not terry branstad would be endorsing. so far obviously remained neutral. chris christie saying he would leave that up to the governor. breaking news now, terry brand stad will campaign with chris christie on sunday night. the final of 13 iowa events. chris christie will have over the course of three days. really providing an exclamation point. again, not an official endorsement, john, but hugging him a little. something chris christie would like as he needs a boost in new hampshire before heading to iowa, crucial for his campaign. >> not the endorsement he desperately would like but a picture that will certainly benefit him. phil mattingly, thank you so much. we're going to be back with more from iowa in a minute. donald trump getting ready to arrive in dubuque. his plane set to land any moment right now. a live event there. donald trump, just ahead.
what's that, broheim? i switched to geico and got more. more savings on car insurance? yeah bro-fessor, and more. like renters insurance. more ways to save. 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.
you're down with crestor. alright! now there's a way you can get crestor for $3. adding crestor, along with diet, lowers bad cholesterol. crestor is not for people with liver disease, or women who are nursing,pregnant, or may become pregnant. tell your doctor all medicines you take. call your doctor if you have muscle pain or weakness; feel unusually tired; have loss of appetite, upper belly pain, dark urine or yellowing of skin or eyes. these could be signs of serious side effects. ask for the crestor $3 card. ask your doctor about crestor.
all the way across the state in dubuque, voters on the ground with their eyes to the sky. why? donald trump about to land in dubuque for a campaign event. his first of three events on this day. you're looking at a live picture right there. that's the stage. you can see the crowd being warmed up. you can see the tarmac behind him, because, i mean it, literally, trump's plane will land, it will pull up. it will be the backdrop. donald trump will take the stage, and address voters there. our senior white house correspondent jim acosta is there. jim, you're looking at flight track e now? what is donald trump due to land? >> reporter: should be any minute now, and from what we understand, john, you're right. the voters are going to be looking to the skies, because donald trump is expected to arrive via trump force one as it's called, his boeing 57, parked behind him for this event. donald trump pulling out the big
guns in this final weekend before the iowa caucuses monday night. interesting about this campaign schedule, you mentioned busy the next 24 hours. right. event here then in clinton, then davenport end of the day. normally doesn't do three events a day. goes to show they want to get this ground operation up and running and this candidate out here to remind voters what they need to get done. the last few minutes we heard one of donald trump's supporters up onstage informing the crowd this is what you have to do, this is -- how you show up on caucus night and register your support for donald trump. they realize there are a lot of new voters that donald trump is bringing into this campaign, bringing into this race. they show up at these big arena rally, and the big question going into monday night is whether or not those voters as caucusgoers will actually show up, and show their support for donald trump nap is the big million dollar question as we're waiting for caucus night on monday, and, john, the other thing we should point out earlier in the day, donald trump put out a video on facebook
appealing to evangelical voters. that's the other key component in winning the iowa caucuses. the last two winners, rick santorum, mike huckabee, coincidentally with donald trump at that veterans dinner thursday night appealing to christian conservatives was key to both of those victories. i suspect we'll hear donald trump make those appeals, in the next few minutes, when he takes the stage here, taked the podium here in dubuque, iowa, but i also think, we'll have to watch for this, because of the news that's come out about hillary clinton, playing it during the day today it may be just a little, too irresistible for donald trump to weigh in on the hillary clinton e-mail controversy and he's still going after ted cruz. you recall yesterday, an banker ba anchor baby from canada. everywhere he goes donald trump is laying into ted cruz. i suspect we'll hear that as pell. >> pulling punches, not exactly donald trump's thing.
>> reporter: that's right. >> not far from jim acosta any minute. we'll take you there when it happens. thank you. cnn has a lot more coverage in store the next two days, including monday, the day of the iowa caucuses. the first actual votes in the 2016 year. so important. so big, we'll bring you every minute of it, live. more news ahead. stay with us. ♪ every auto insurance policy has a number.
