classified information. >> aren't you violating it? >> no. as the state department said just this week that did not happen and it never would have happened because that's just not way i treated classified information. >> reporter: fox is reporting the fbi probe may expand to look at the intersection of clinton foundation work and state department business violated the public corruption laws but moments ago in iowa clinton told "the des moines register" that said that's an irresponsible claim and not true. clinton anticipated said she heard nothing from the fbi so it's unclear what she knows and does not know. >> obviously a game changer. e > on the republican sid tonight new polls suggest donald trump and ted cruz are first and second, or second and first just three weeks before the first votes are taken in the iowa caucuses. senior political correspondent mike emmanuel looks at a wealth of information tonight. >> reporter: the latest polling out of iowa feature as two man

the top, he sounded upbeat with this reference to the powerball lottery. >> because i was born in america and i know the lord. >> reporter: that quinnipiac survey revealed 46% of those in iowa who named a republican candidate said they might change their mind. that suggests there could be some movement over the next three weeks. >> we are just few days away from the next republican presidential candidate debate in south carolina. the undercard begins with trish regan and sandra smith fold by the main event at 9:00 p.m. immigration will no doubt be a big issue thursday. but in germany tonight the practical and political dangers of the subject are in an especially sharp focus. new year's eve attacks on german women are putting pressure on chancellor angela merkel's open door policy towards refugees. senior foreign affairs correspondent has the latest tonight. >> reporter: it was refugee

iraqi officials say they stormed the facility in eastern baghdad after setting off a car bomb. four police officers are among the dead. officials say two terrorists were killed and four arrested. the threat and reality of islamic terrorism here at home don't keep the city of philadelphia and its police officers on edge tonight. there is concern that last week's targeting of a philadelphia cop by an isis inspired shooter could be just the beginning. senior correspondent rick leventhal is in philadelphia tonight. >> reporter: philadelphia police officers are now traveling in pairs on heightened alert after a tip that the gunman who said he shot the officer last thursday night in the name of islam may not have been acting alone. according to an incident report a woman approached an officer over the weekend and told him the threat was not over. that the suspect 30-year-old edward archer was part of a group of three others and of not the most radical of the four. the tipster said other officers
could be targeted in the same neighborhood and police should be careful. >> it's the new normal. it's what police officers will face every day in this country from now on whether the person is radicalized or an agent of isis. this is what we'll see in the future. >> reporter: law enforcement forces tells fox they get tips like these all time and it may or may not be credible and wouldn't have been made public if somebody didn't leak the incident report. detectives and fbi are investigating, including searches of residents used by archer looking intoys hudson valley 0 to saudi arabia and egypt in 2011 and 2012 and checking his internet history for terror ties. the new mayor angered many in the department when he down play played archer's allegiance to
isis. >> it has nothing to do with being a muslim or following the islamic faith. >> five year veteran remains in intensify care in critical but stable condition at penn presbyterian medical center with family and friends apartment his side. he had surgery last week and was scheduled for more today. >> i'm shot. i'm bleeding heavily. >> the officer took three bullets in i had left arm at close range and he is still struggling according to the police commissioner. his arm is broken and he suffered extensive nerve damage. the white house is not calling this a terror attack. not yet. the press secretary said he's waiting on the philly police department to conclude its investigation. >> rick leventhal live in philadelphia. rick, thank you. the brutality of isis throughout syria and iraq has been on full display for months but perhaps no religious group has been a targeted more than the yazidis in northern iraq. isis goes by many names.
in the region it's called daish. a woman is helping families brutalized by isis with an organization called seed. >> reporter: one woman is trying to put her life together after being held by daish for three months. it haunts her. she says she was eventually taken to mosul and held with other women in a wedding hall. some were beaten and stripped. her friend slit her wrist. women being captured subject authored rent douse brutality and violence. their husbands being killed. sometimes their children being killed. the women were abducted. they were sold all over iraq. some many times. and they are there to service the soldiers. i think t for them to
heal at home in kurdistan where people speak the same language. if we had the same resource to support them in kurdistan they can rebuild their lives and communities where they are. >> there are many more stories of yazidi women escaping isis. see the full interview and more of that discussing the seed organization. still ahead, what you will not hear from president obama in tomorrow night's state of the union address. first, some teachers say paying mandatory fees to
criminal they have a constitutional right to do it. i find it grotesque. >> reporter: others say a scoop is a scoop. fellow actor had another explanation. >> i'm sure he was pursuing something creatively. >> reporter: mexico's attorney general said penn's meeting was essential to guzman's capture. they took the surveillance photo of the two men. guzman is in a prison under heavy guard. new video shows he almost escaped friday's raid slipping out of a back into a tunnel and sewer system. he came out of a manhole cover but acts caught him in a getaway car. getting guzman into a u.s. courtroom could take up to a year. preparations are under way for president obama's final state of the union address tomorrow night. don't expect a traditional send off from this president.
>> reporter: optimistic how white house officials are describing the president's state of the union tuesday night. >> the speech is not about him it's about the american people and future of our country. >> reporter: the president is expected to paint an optimistic view for 2016 based on 2015 which saw u.s. auto sales hit an all-time record of 17.4 million. and the creation of 2.7 million new jobs second best for job creation since 1999. also on the president's checklist, renewed relation with cuba and iran nuclear deal and initiatives on climate change. >> the bigger things will make america more prosperous for our kids. >> reporter: the list of items the president promised on but failed to deliver on is long and well documented including the failure to get comprehensive immigration reform and the fight
in iraq and syria and closing the prison at guantanamo bay, cuba. >> i said repeatedly i intend to close guantanamo. >> reporter: a pledge eight years in the making but one he intends to keep. >> he feels an obligation to his successor to close that. that's why we'll do it. >> so, you were going to do it. >> reporter: critics aren't so sure. another detainee was release this week after 14 years in the prison leading some to believe the prison may attempt tomorrow ti the facility unilaterally or use more executive action to close it once and for all. >> what obama is doing is preventing any successor president from undoing what obama has done. if the president is going close off the option for the next president to re-open gitmo he's got to give it back to the cubans. >> question is will he rise to the moment? based on what the white house has been saying in the media it's unlikely we'll hear a unifying message for our country
tomorrow. >> reporter: we're told the president will likely be very conversational in his style and tone tuesday night sort of a campaign mode if you can think of it that way. we also learned the family research council made it possible for kim davis to attend the state of the union on tuesday night. you may remember she's the county cleerk from state of kentucky who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses are a for their part the white house invited one of the plaintiffs from same-sex marriage that made it the law of the land. >> our state of the union coverage begins tuesday, 8:55:00 p.m. hillary clinton just can't put bernie sanders away in iowa. we'll talk about that, the closing poll numbers
turn into nonpaper with no identifying heading and send nonsecure. aren't you ordering him to violate the laws on handling classified memorial there? -- material there? >> no. as the state department said that never happened and would never have happened because that's just not the way i treated classified information. headings are not classification notices and so oftentimes we're trying to get the best information we can and, obviously, what i'm asking for is whatever can be transmitted if it doesn't come through secure to be transmitted on the unclassified systems. >> okay. hillary clinton on "face the nation" this weekend being asked about this e-mail that came out late last week we first reported on, which was an e-mail with jake sullivan, an aide at the state department. you see it here. the line is they can't turn into nonpaper with no identifying heading and send nonsecure.
they say they had issues sending secure fax. they are working on it. she said essentially take off the headings. this comes at fox is reporting the fbi is not pulling back but expanding the investigation into hillary clinton, not just temp mail but also looking at she says the co-mingling of her work as secretary of state and the clinton foundation. just moments ago hillary clinton was with "des moines register" in iowa. jennifer suggest as very high
to be and therefore it isn't. >> let's be clear. the investigation, the problem is the server, not any specific e-mail. but the server in general to begin with. the fbi is continuing its investigation. the real circumstances whether they move forward and suggest prosecution to the doj which then would have to make that decision. >> right. i got to say, i mean i don't -- nonpaper is a term of art within the state of department bureaucracy that means an unofficial document without the headings and so on. the underlying substance of this was these were talking points for some meeting she was going to have with a foreign official. not like nuclear codes. having said that i would not like to be hillary clinton today because it reminds everybody of an issue that bernie sanders had told her you don't have to worry. her own opponent. he's regretting that. it's always twoshs running for president with an fbi investigation going on against you than without one. >> up look at new hampshire.
charles, the nbc poll in the new hampshire democratic polling you have sanders up within the margin of error there, it's 50-46 plus or minus. then the fox news poll which we reported on friday has sanders up much bigger in new hampshire, and there you see 50-37. so the reality is sinking in these early states may be difficult. >> even if she loses iowa and new hampshire, it's hard to see sanders goes anywhere particularly down south when his constituency is essentially rich, white liberals who live on the coast, some in university towns. it's a big constituency but not big enough and he has, as far as we can see, no appeal or maybe low appeal to minorities and african-americans. without that you can't win the nomination. but if i get to return to the
explanation on the emails. i don't think it's denial. it's worse. it's cynicism. look at the logic of what she said. i asked him to do this but she says it didn't happen, well that's irrelevant. it wouldn't have happened. well why wouldn't it have happened? you asked him to do it. it wouldn't have happened because that's not how i do things. but she just did it. that was the instruction she gave. and the other part is this is completely innocent and routine, why would you scrub the heading? it makes no sense. she knows it. she puts a smile on her face. she brazens her way through it. i have to admire her for that. but i think she knows this is a real vulnerableilty. in the end it's about the legality of this and will there be a criminal referral. if there isn't her nomination isn't in jeopardy.
>> the fbi does have notify the subject of the investigation, so it's important to note that in the clinton statement to "the des moines register" and also just breaking now the state department is going to release 29,000 pages of your honor m a's official e-mail. that's coming in tonight. that raises more questions and a lot more e-mails. >> that's for sure. i think charles analysis is absolutely right. nobody outside of the clinton campaign believes bernie sanders has a chance. it's a boutique campaign. but it's going nowhere. hillary doesn't know that. the hallmark of a mediocre mind is one who fights the last war. losing to obama during those primaries and she will do anything to avoid that happening. that's why she's moved so far less, endorsing drivers license for illegal aliens. everything she says is designed
i recognize that there are candidates in the field that don't want to talk about those you. and they want to instead encourage the good people in the media to go down rabbit trails and engage in circus side shows. i don't think the american people are interested in that. >> does natural born mean born to the land? meaning born on the land? in that case, he is not. but you nobody knows what what it means. it hasn't been adjudicated and it hasn't gone to the supreme court. i'm only saying this, and i speak well of ted, i'm only saying that ted has to get this problem solved because if he is running against a democrat, and they bring a
lawsuit, he has got a hell of a thing over his head. >> well, talking again about ted cruz as a natural born citizen, donald trump, obviously he is getting asked these questions but he is bringing it up on the trail on his owns a well. let's take a look at the real clear politics average of polls in iowa. this includes new polls out today. here it is. cruz up 2 points in the average of recent polls. there you see rubio and carson. one poll out today had this question. we've asked this too before in fox news polls but the quinnipiac poll who would you definitely not support in iowa and there you see the top leaders there in not supporting bush, trump, tied at the top. christie, kasich and paul. we're back with the panel. what about this back and forth and is trump having success along the margins? it didn't feel that way but boy, it's not going away. >> look, this issue with ted cruz's citizenship, i have
done my best to educate myself about the law and trump is wrong, okay. that because the man's mother wasn't an american citizen, not with standing the fact he was born in canada he is a natural born citizen. trump is right there. has never been a supreme court case on that. there is a sliver of ambiguity that he can exploit to raise in issue to pester ted cruz and try to get inside his head the way he got inside jeb's head. what it shows you is that there is really no substantive difference between the two. there is not much anyway on the issues. he is trying to can you tell him down as a person. both of them are competing in the same antiestablishment space in iowa. the most remarkable thing about the poll numbers that you put up add them with what little is left over for ben carson 63% of the iowa electorate is leading toward one of the antiestablishment candidates and jeb, as you showed is number one in terms of who they reject. >> what's interesting is rtd
evangelical vote is obviously crucial in iowa. cruz plays heavy there so does carson and so does santorum and huckabee there is a split there. is that potentially a problem for cruz? >> he needs tofçp clean up as much of what is left over for the marginal candidates as he can. the race is neck and neck. the most recent quinnipiac that came out for today has trump up in iowa by two. >> all, you know, again, all these polls are within the margin. >> within the margin of error but they are basically tied. i disagree that trump is trying to pester cruz. i think you are all too cynical. tramp has explained he is just trying to help cruz. that's because he likes him. as he said, he would hate to see anything get in the way. so i think this is helpful advice. but you know what's so amazing. trump has the capacity because of his command of the media, the so he manship of creating issues at will. no matter how irrelevant. i mean, look at all the issues he has created.
the natural -- the birth right citizenship, the idea you can exclude muslims or not, i mean, all these issues never raised before. he says it and then all of the sudden the nation is seized with a debate over the merits of this. three days later, if he doesn't need it anymore, it disappears like the wind. >> by the way, wires reporting senator rand paul is talking about the debate coming up thursday and that he has been told that he is not on the top tier. and that now. actually officially comes out in about seven minutes on fbn. but if that's the case, what does that say, you know, you have got probably seven candidates, and if rand paul, he has threatened not to be on that stage second tier, what does that say about the paul campaign? there is going to be interesting postmortem hopefully some of them will be smart about why a lot of these guys didn't catch fire and most of the analyses
will point back to trump. there was a huge market for someone who wasn't -- who was telling the truth or a version of it or at least seemed honest and direct. everybody in power lies all the time so the guy who doesn't is obviously going to do well, trump just cornered that market, unfortunately. i think where i live in washington, everybody thinks ted cruz is going to win iowa. i would throw up one caution flag here, a, the guy with the best ground game win. i was there in 2004 when howard dean had the best ground game ever. every teenager showed up in a orange cap to get out the vote for him he came in third. how many people do you know who kind of like trump but embarrass to do say so at dinner parties because they don't want to be attacked, a lot. if there is ever a candidate under polled, i know these people, they are not going to say it. >> new hampshire, real clear politics average of polls in new hampshire trump up big, rubio in second and kasich in third. kasich hanging around, chuck, and saying that he is going to make his mark in new hampshire. >> if he is going to make it anywhere it's got to be new
hampshire. he has poured a lot of resources and time in there it's the place where you might see the sort of liberallish ohio governor catch fire. but going back to tucker's point rand paul's flop in this campaign is going to be interesting part of postmortem. theory was libertarian lane opening in the republican party and people missed the authoritarian lane that was seized by donald trump. >> rand paul ran into isis and he never recovered. >> that is it for the panel. but stay tuned for questions you may have wanted to request ask the democratic presidential candidates. one late night host did. need to hire fast?
go to ziprecruiter.com and post your job to over one hundred of the web's leading job boards with a single click. then simply select the best candidates from one easy to review list. and now you can use zip recruiter for free. go to ziprecruiter.com. finally tonight the fbn is working on the debate. when moderating a presidential debate it can be hard choosing which questions to ask one late night host narrowed it down to the pressing question he had for the candidates in his version of the democratic debate. >> senator sanders, your hair looks terrific tonight. did something happen to your old hairstylist? >> we fired that person. [ laughter ] >> secretary clinton, question for you, who painted this picture? >> george w. bush did this,
and i give him credit. >> that is correct. this is a george w. bush painting. >> governor o'malley, a serious question, what would do you about people who still have their christmas decorations up? >> mark their homes for demolition. [ laughter ] >> senator sanders, what would you be doing right now if you weren't running for president? >> hanging around on street corners, potentially getting into trouble. >> oh, yes. thanks for inviting us into your home tonight. that's it for this "special report," fair, balanced and unafraid. don't forget the state of the union coverage tomorrow night 8:55 p.m. greta goes "on the record" right now. ♪ ♪ >> it is tuesday january 12th. inside the take down of the most famous fugitive. gunfire and grenades exploding
