8:00 am
martha: i had no idea i had such neighbors that are billions of miles away. i still think pluto is planet number 9. i have a problem with that. bye, everybody, see you tomorrow. jon: on this thursday morning, a mighty political battle between the establishment and the outsider, and, no, we are not talking about the republicans, rather the democrat as hillary clinton fights off a surging bernie sanders in iowa and new hampshire. welcome to "happening now." i'm jon scott. heather: i'm heather childers in for jenna lee. the real clear politic average of all the polls shows bernie sanders leading in the hillary
8:01 am
clinton in new hampshire by 12 points. so mrs. clinton deployed the most powerful weapon to the granite state. >> she does stuff and she knows what he to stand her ground and when to find common ground. you will never have a chance to vote for somebody who i better prepared for the demand of this kind? how are you going to restore the economy in way that shares prosperity and solve social problems to bring us closer together. how are you going to get rid of political gridlock and protect your country. there is one person running in this race that is by far the best one to do the job for you and you can bring it home for her in new hampshire. jon: chief white house correspondent ed henry is on the campaign trail in peter borrow.
8:02 am
>> the former president highlighting her experience. in 2008, the 3:00 a.m. phone calls against then senator barack obama. it did not work. this type highlighting experience while bernie sanders as you noted is highlighting the outsider mood. the angry mood that donald trump as you noted is happening into on the republican side. hillary clinton meanwhile has been on the attack although they are trying to be more careful in the clinton camp. in new hampshire last week their daughter economy see clinton charged bernie sanders would dismantle obamacare. there was a boomerang and it appeared to backfire. hillary clinton said bernie sanders's healthcare plan is the wrong way to go but she tried a softer evening.
8:03 am
>> in all those 20 years he never got a sponsor in the senate or got a vote in the house. right before the last debate he changed his plan and put out an 8-page summary of his new plan which is a single pair plan which will require total new legislation starting from scratch. i do not think we should start from scratch. reporter: when i talk to people inside the sanders' camp, they say in a democratic primary there are a lot of liberals who like the idea of a single-pair plan. bernie sanders has a positive new tv ad. watch. [♪] ♪ all come to look for america reporter: some democrats on
8:04 am
social media noting when you look at that ad. it's mostly white voters and that could be a problem for bernie sanders long term. when you get to the south, hillary clinton believes african-american voters will be key and that will be a southern fire wall for her. bernie sanders has been surging. you mention, feel the burn. i can't feel the burn right now, it's a little bit chilly out here. jon: it looks like it. get yourself a hat. heather: donald trump is topping most of the polls for months. and now there are signs the republican party may finally be ready to accept the possibility of trump as its nominee. james rosen is live for us in our d.c. bureau with more on that. reporter: placing one fingers on the pulse of a creature as
8:05 am
elusive as the gop is an inexact science. but a tentative conclusion is said establishment is beginning to accept and maybe even warm up to the prospect that donald trump may be the party standard bearer. some republicans who moved through the stages of grief from denial to bargaining have begun to suggest trump might be preferable to senator ted cruz because trump is seen as more moderate. there are few more establishment figures in the republican party than bob dole. he told the "new york times" yesterday the wholesale losses the party would suffer if ted cruz emerges as its nominee would be ca --would be cataclys. >> i have been around for five decades. republicans in congress, the elected republicans are starting to assume donald trump is going
8:06 am
to be our nominee. how do we deal with it? do we run a separate campaign or run with them? the stab aren't saying i'm not sure i want to put more money into candidate against him. my sense is before a vote is cast. he's almost wrapping this thing up. reporter: the real clear politics average shows only a percentage -- 1.5% separate trump and cruz in iowa. voting a little more than a week from now. it could be anyone's ballgame. thank you so much. jon: one very establishment republican beginning to warm to the reality of donald trump and he's one of the party's standard bearers is form senator and 1996 presidential candidate bob dole. he says republicans would be better off with donald trump.
8:07 am
he said the party would suffer cataclysmic wholesale losses if ted cruz is the nominee. brad blakeman is former deputy assistant to george w. bush. brad, to you first as the republican on this panel. what do you think of what bob dole had to say? >> i think this is more bob dole stick up for his brotherhood in the senate. the decorum and camaraderie that we haven't seen with ted cruz with this other republican in the senate. remember in the senate you are one of 100 but you are also one of 5d also one of -- also one of 54. as bob dole alluded to, the truth telling. it's more about bob dole sending a shot over everybody's bow if
8:08 am
it is trump, then tremendous may be the type of nominee that could bring consensus and deal making. jon: are you surprised that a former presidential candidate like bob dole, the republican nominee for the 1996 election would say maybe donald trump could be my guy? >> yeah, i guess i am. what it really indicates is an aban document that rubio or one of the mainstream establishment candidates that have been fighting for that track in the party sort of giving up on one of them emerging. i think it's early to do that. i think new hampshire could still serve up whether it's rubio or christie or kasich. but i think looking -- the establishment doesn't like trump and they don't like cruz. but what's happened here is they are starting to say it's going to be between the two of them,
8:09 am
we would be better off with trump. i would agree with that from a democratic stand point. i would much rather the strategists run against cruz. we have a better chance in a lot of places. the thing that would bother me about trump is how unpredictable his support is and how it might connect in a sparse way and give us trouble. jon: you have segue perfectly into something i wanted to bring up. early in the campaign donald trump was perceived as a guy who had such high negatives, we were told time and time again that once the field narrowed and there was trump and a few other candidates, trump's support as a relative share of the pool would shrink. there is a new poll. but back in july -- june of 2015, 23% of republican voters
8:10 am
in new hampshire said they could never see themselves voting for donald trump. now the number has actually grown. ted cruz the numbers were bloift. nationally in july the number who said they could not vote for trump was 4%. it's down to 34%. cruz has also gone in the right direction if you are a candidate. 38% said they could not vote for him in july, 25% are saying so now. is there a possibility that as the field shrinks, is there a possibility as the field shrinks donald trump might find himself on the outs? >> absolutely. again, i would caution my republican colleagues. to quote margaret thatcher. don't go wobbly. a lot of things can happen in iowa and new hampshire. which the way, we know that historically people don't tend
8:11 am
to make up their minds until the last days of the actual voting or caucus process. so we have to let this thing play out in iowa and new hampshire then we'll know if donald trump is real and where this is going. >> we are playing this as a donald trump endorses -- bob dole endorses donald trump by says he likes jeb bush. jeb bush, his candidacy hasn't exactly caught fire. >> that's what i'm saying. i think brad is right. it's way too early to count everybody else out. iowa and new hampshire is capable of launching somebody from the establishment wing into a third or second place finish, a surprise finish that would get people's attention and make this a three-way race, not a two-way. the numbers you pointed out, jon: of people saying they would
8:12 am
never vote for trump. if it's only 34% he can get to 60% or some number like that. the establishment needs a three-way race between trump, cruz and rubio, trump, cruz and kasich or bush. then the establishment would actually have a path to get a more mainstream candidate that they think would do better in the swing states than trump or cruz. i don't think cruz will do much good as a swing state candidate. that's where trump does steer me a -- scare me a little bit. but there is a surprise factor. jon: i'll bet donald trump will be calling you any minute. what are you scared of? >> no, not at all. heather: that was your trump imitation? onrsh a very poor one. heather: lateisha holloway

8:17 am
lateisha holloway could face 1,000 years in prison if convicted of 71 charges against her. she is accused of murder and attempted murder for allegedly mowing down pedestrians last month on the las vegas strip. one woman was killed and dozens injured. cal harris' murder trial in new york is set to begin march 28. he's charged with killing his estranged wife michelle. her body was never found nor was any murder weapon. his two previous convictions were overturned. heather: the treasury department will start identifying secret buyers of luxury real estate in the u.s. after questions about money laundering by foreigners buying luxury property anonymously. phil keating is there with a look at some of them. i see new york is included in this.
8:18 am
>> both cities. in miami cash remains king at least for now where real estate has been booming the past four years. this unit on the market for $1 million is a case in point above the miami river. spectacular views. real estate agents say the past couple years 75% to 90% of the luxury properties bought have been all cash. 6,000 condos under construction in miami where foreign buyers have dominated the market. many are bought anonymously via limited liability companies or l.l.c.s. starting march 1 a very concerned treasury department will be targeting miami and new york are luxury property buyers will have to start revealing their identity to the feds. >> the underlying source that
8:19 am
the dirty money can be drugs or ponzi sceeps or terrorists or whatever. reporter: the government says the names will only be known by them but real is 8 experts fear this could drive rich buyers demanding privacy other markets. remaining anonymous is totally legal. especially among latin american buyers. they don't want anyone back home knowing how much money they are spending in the u.s. which is exactly what's expected on his $1.6 million south beach unit. >> ever since the crash we have seen only cash transactions. i expect to sell as a cash transaction. whether it's under an llc, most likely yes. reporter: this extra scrutiny by the treasury department begins march 1 and end at the end of august.
8:20 am
however, if the treasury find a lot of dirty money this program could be spended to -- expanded to other cities if not made permanent. heather: that view is beautiful. thanks very much. jon: a deadly greyhound bus crash. investigators just ruled out some causes for the accident. what they are look at now. plus ... a former kgb agent poisoned in london blamed vladimir putin on his death bed. british investigators agree. the impact this could have on the already strained relations between those two nations and how the rest of the world will react.
8:21 am
8:22 am
8:23 am
jon: investigators in california
8:24 am
say the driver a greyhound bus that veered off a rain-slicked road killing two women was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. but they are look into other causes for that deadly crash in san jose, california including driver fatigue. the bus driver said he was tired and stopped for coffee 30 miles before the accident took place. heather: the fallout from a stunning report from british investigators who just concluded russian president vladimir putin probably ordered the assassination of a former kgb agent who turned critic. he was poisoned in london after drinking tea laced with a deadly toxin. on his death bed livly bed he ad
8:25 am
putin. >> can you tell us why he would have been a target to begin with? he's a former fsb agent. it's the successor to the kgb. one of the things that happened to him in the early 2000s, he discovered evidence that the russian government might have been responsible for some catastrophic apartment bombings in moscow in september 1999. he fled russia. went to the united kingdom. made that evidence public and became a prominent critic of the putin regime. in 2006 he was poisoned with a radioactive chemical called polonium. it took him a while to die it was a very painful death. his wife has been campaigning for an inquest into his murder
8:26 am
and the causes of the murder and whether the russian government was involved. heather: that brings to us this point today. the investigation complete and pointing to vladimir putin saying he ordered this. what will this decision mean in terms of relations between british and russian relations. >> british-russian relations are probably at their point since the height of the cold war. you see russian war planes close to british territory. there is a lot of controversy. and russian support for the assad regime in syria. so things are already bad. one of the things that's important to remember is this is an independent inquest, an independent investigation led by a former judge. it has the backing and resources of the government before it's not necessarily government policy. one of the thing that will come out in the course of this discussion is whether the
8:27 am
cameron government endorses the findings of this inquest or whether they are going to try to put it under the rug. the human rights issues here are strong. but the diplomatic implications could be severe as well. heather: russia has responded saying there was one goal from the beginning and that was to slander russia and it officials. in terms of other countries around the world, how will this impact relations? >> it's hard to know. people's relationships with the but continue regime tend to be -- with the putin regime tend to be pragmatic. when our interests temporarily align we tend to collaborate with putin and his regime. you can see that breakdown in the relationship happening in ukraine, in syria, and a number of other places. russia always defends it
8:28 am
interests and the united states, the united kingdom and their allies should have a good understanding of their interests. and this is one of those areas where it favors the pushing back, especially given the concerns surrounding the human rights situation in russia. the real causes of the chechen war and the sort of things the putin regime has been doing over the space of the last 15, 16 years. heather: the bottom line is here if it's true, these two operatives were sent into another country. they murder someone, then go back to where they are hidden because refusing to extradite them claiming the investigation doesn't mean anything. >> one of the alleged operatives, i don't have the benefit of seeing the same evidence the former judge leading in the the inquest saw. one of the alleged operatives is a parliamentarian in russia and
8:29 am
is exempt from prosecution, immune from prosecution as long as he holds a seat. one of the other things worth noting is the inquest report points the finger at the former head of the kgb who is the secretary of the head of putin's national security council. one of his closest advisors relating to foreign affairs, domestic security and intelligence. heather: some others have come to questionable demise in russia as well. we appreciate your insight. jon: plummeting oil prices raising fears about a long-term bear market. is there a silver lining in all of this? and the accused serial killer dubbed son of sal take part in bizarre courtroom antics.

8:34 am
speaking out this morning is to push back on the white house, because the president says that iran has changed now that the joint comprehensive plan of action -- also known as the iran deal -- has been implemented. but these senators are saying, not so fast. their belief is that iran is still supporting terrorism and still trying to build dangerous ballistic missiles. these lawmakers are also expected to explain that they are grateful those american prisoners have been brought back home, but they plan to point out that none of them should have ever been held prisoner in iran in the first place. this press conference on capitol hill comes just hours after our country's top diplomat, the secretary of state john kerry, said he is convinced the world is safer right now because he thinks iran would have a full-fledged nuclear weapons program if it wasn't for the iran deal and american sanctions. >> we stand by our sanctions. we think they've been used judiciously and effectively, and we're ready to move on now to
8:35 am
put the test, the willingness of iran and other countries in the region to try to reduce tensions and move in a different direction. >> reporter: and so far the united states hasn't seen any evidence that money iran now has from the sanctions relief has been funneled to terrorist groups. but secretary kerry says that he thinks at some point some of that money we just released and gave tehran access to will be given to groups that we consider terrorists. heather. heather: peter doocy live for us. we will, of course, continue to monitor that news conference and bring everyone the latest as it develops. thank you. jon: wall street is bouncing back just a bit today after the dow was down more than 500 points at one point yesterday. you can see it up right now 142. as crude futures are heading higher after the price of oil dropped nearly 75% from its high of $107 back in june of 2014.
8:36 am
let's check in with phil flynn, he's an oil trader, senior market analyst for the price futures group and a fox business network contributor. so oil is heading higher today, do i have that right, phil? what does that signify? >> it signifies a return of confidence because really if you look at why oil prices have crashed this year, it's partly about supply, but it's really about the confidence about demand. fears about china, fear about a global economic slowdown has just tanked oil prices for this entire year, and if you're fearful that the global economy's going to slow, you're not going to be optimistic about oil demand and the so-called oil glut that we have right now looks a lot larger. jon: but for most americans who drive to work, it's going to mean lower gas prices. that's a good thing, isn't it? >> it is, you know? but if you look at your 401(k) the last couple days, you won't think that it is. it's really kind of a two, double-edged sword story. i mean, obviously, it puts more
8:37 am
money in our pocket, but we really haven't seen that transfer to the regular economy. we haven't seen consumer spending really jump in other areas other than to, you know, food and a few other things. so at some point that will transfer over, but the reason why it probably isn't hitting this move, january was a new month. taxes are going up, health care bills are going up, and so even though you're saving money at the gas tank, you're not feeling that much better about your economic prospects. jon: and there's, there is this iranian oil coming back on the market as a result of president obama's iran deal. how much is that affecting what's going on now? >> it is definitely souring the mood, because if you're going to be adding oil into a market where already we're consuming about -- or we're consuming 1.5 million barrels less than we're producing every day, that as to those -- that adds to those glut fears of more oil on the global
8:38 am
marketplace. my concern isn't so much that it's going to add to the glut, but it's going to add to the pain of the u.s. energy producers. that extra oil that has driven down prices is going to drive a lot of the u.s. producers out of business, you know? while we're helping iran get back into the global marketplace, we're burying the u.s. energy producers. there's predictions that one-third of u.s. energy producers will have to restructure or go bankrupt this year. so that really isn't good news for our economy because, let's face it, energy has been a bright spot of our economic recovery. now that we're taking that away, the entire, you know, the entire economic landscape doesn't look as rosy. jon: yeah. places like north dakota have been booming as a result of fracking. is, are they going to be hanging out the closed shingles there? >> i'm afraid they are. we're already hearing that these companies are cutting back to the bare bones. there's going to be more layoffs coming. you know, a lot of these companies are losing money on every barrel. but they just have to keep
8:39 am
pumping oil and losing money because they need cash flow. and how they adjust for that is to lay people off. so they're going to go down to bare bones operations. once they start going bankrupt, you're going to see the unemployment rate start to rise, you're going to see the housing market that was booming a few years ago really tighten up. it's going to have ramifications. the other thing you have to look at is the banks that have been lending these energy companies money, how are they going to keep their spigots going to allow these producers to keep going? i would bet unless oil to prices stabilize soon, a lot of banks are going to start closing those loans. jon: all right, phil flynn. some silver linings there, but some bleak clouds ahead as well. thanks, phil. heather: still to come, "making a murderer" casting its shadows on the courts. a key player in steven avery's story now set to testify in yet another murder trial.
8:40 am
can a jury be impartial if they already saw that witness in action on a tv show? at least one juror admits, no. plus, this massive winter storm powering across the u.s. with up to two feet of snow expected in some places. we have the forecast from the fox extreme weather center. ready for that, jon? jon: i am. [laughter] ♪ ♪
8:41 am
8:42 am
8:43 am
jon: a fox news weather alert on a powerful storm on the move right now with winter storm warnings and blizzard watches in effect for millions. north carolina getting a taste of it already today, but it's going to get much worse there, and as it heads toward the mid-atlantic and northeastern states, hitting those regions hard beginning tomorrow night through saturday. snow totals could reach two feet in places. washington, d.c. is declaring a state of emergency as heavy snow
8:44 am
coupled with strong winds are expected to bring whiteout conditions to the nation's capital. heather: thank you, jon. the popular documentary "making a murderer" is now an issue in the trial of james van callous near detroit accused of beating and stomping a 14-year-old girl to death. the problem is a defense witness in that trial is a prominent figure in the documentary which tells the story of a man convicted of sexual assault who was later exonerated and then convicted of murdering someone else. now, the figure in both cases is private investigator michael o' kelley who is expected to testify on van callous' behalf, but the judge has dismissed a member of the jury after learning that juror holds a negative opinion of o' kelley based upon what he saw in the documentary. let's look at this with fox news anchor and attorney gregg jarrett. so there's a lot going on here.
8:45 am
>> right. heather: there's one case on tv, one of the jurors saw this individual who's set to testify about evidence in this case, and he said that he couldn't be impartial, that he didn't like him, so they dismissed him. >> yeah. and that's absolutely the right thing to do, and the judge was very smart here because he explored potential bias and whether any of the potential jurors had seen not only the tv documentary series, but whether they'd seen o' kelley and whether as a consequence of what they saw they harbored a negative view. and that juror was dismissed. ohs had actually -- others had actually seen the docks yulely series, and they didn't have a negative view, they were allowed to serve. but this is pretty typical. this is what voir dire is all about, to question potential jurors to see if they harbor bias. the william kennedy smith rape trial back in 1993, extensive voir dire because a key star witness in the case, senator ted kennedy, a very controversial figure, people had a lot of
8:46 am
views about ted kennedy. and so those who couldn't set aside those views, they were excluded from the jury. in the end, of course, when kennedy smith was acquitted. heather: and in this particular case itself, we mentioned that the victim, 14 years old, had been stomped to death and beaten to death. is there physical evidence in this case? >> that's the problem for prosecutors. there's no dna, no fingerprints, no fiber, no see men, no hair -- siemen, no hair. none of the usual physical evidence and scientific evidence, forensic evidence that is so persuasive to jurors. instead what you have is some allegedly incriminating statements he made to his girlfriend, you've got some other potential eye witnesses on the list, and you have video surveillance of his motorcycle allegedly going by the crime scene right about the time of the crime.
8:47 am
but a lot of that can be knocked down by a good defense attorney, and he's got a good one. heather: he's facing a lot of charges though. interesting how they got to that. apparently she was wearing a fitbit, and they were able to trace her route until she -- from where she ended up. >> yeah. heather: now to another to courtroom drama in new york where an accused serial killer was kicked out of his own murder trial. officials say salvatore peron wouldn't be quiet during the proceedings, muttering and shouting and insulting his own lawyer. he's accused in the murders of three middle eastern shopkeepers in brooklyn. the judge thinks the outbursts are a deliberate ploy to try and force a mistrial. this case also known as the son of sal -- >> yeah. heather: -- and what about this defendant? does he have a right to be in the courtroom? >> he does have a right under the sixth amendment to the constitution, he has the right to confront his accusers. but that is not an absolute right.
8:48 am
in fact, the u.s. supreme court carved out an exception to it. justice hugo black wrote the opinion. we'll put it up on the screen, here it is. a defendant can lose his right to be present at trial if, following the judge's warning, that he will be removed if his disruptive behavior continues. he nevertheless insists on conducting himself in such a disruptive manner his trial cannot proceed if he remains in the courtroom. so, yes, the defendant has a right to be present, but it's not an absolute right. he can't benefit from his own misconduct, disrupting the trial and preventing it from going forward. and instilling a bias in the jurors. heather: and this particular outburst did not happen in front of jurors. is there any type of alternative other than taking him out of court? >> there is. interestingly enough, the supreme court in that decision said there is an alternative. instead of kicking a defendant out of the courtroom, literally you can bind and gag that defendant in the defense chair.
8:49 am
and famously that was done by judge julius hoffman during the chicago eight trial when the black panther activist bobby seale kept shouting. and there's the judge, julius hoffman. he kept shouting obscenities and other statements, and the judge finally said, you know what? we're going to bind and gag you, and you're going to sit there. eventually, the judge decided to sever bobby seale from the case and, thus, the chicago eight became the chicago seven. heather: how did that not influence the jury? the defendant screaming out in court, that would influence them, but seeing him sitting there bound and gagged would as well. >> which is why most judges do what this judge is doing in brooklyn, and that is to simply exclude him from the trial, because you are creating this image of guilt in the mind of jurors if the defendant is bound and gagged and sitting there. heather: sure you are, yeah.
8:50 am
>> and not only that, he can still be disruptive even though he's bound and gagged. heather: gregg jarrett, always interesting legal cases that you bring us. thank you. >> sure. jon: let's talk about cars. volvos stretching the boundaries of auto safety. the new kind of car it's working on and when it hopes to have this thing on the road. also drought and soaring temperatures creating a humanitarian crisis affecting millions of people. where this is all unfolding and what's being done to try to help. bend me shape me, any way you want me as long as you love me, it's alright bend me shape me, any way you want me you've got the power, to turn on the light shape the best sleep of your life. sleep number beds with sleepiq technology adjust any way you want it. the bed that moves you. only at a sleep number store.
