fox news, america's election headquarters and a conservative voice launching an assault aimed at taking down donald trump. conservative pundits for a special ebition called against trump. lowery organized this. saying that trump is nothing but smoke or mirrors. >> if you are truly conservative you believe in ideas and principles and not just attitudes and who you dislike it is limited government and the constitution and can liberty. those are the things that truly make the country special and they are after thoughts to donald trump. he almost never talks about them and if you are truly a conservative you have a record.
>> you might have guessed trump fired back. late great william buck pley would be ashamed of what happened to his prize, the dying national review. he spoke to reporters in las vegas. >> national review is a doing paper and circulation is way down and not many people read it anymore. people don't think about the national review. i guess they wanted to get publicity. >> david drubbinger is senior correspondent for the washington examiner. you wrote on that topic and describing the kwannedry that republicans are feeling. at least the republican leadership. do they side with cruz, the texas senator in whom they have no trust but who of the two best repreponderates the conservative values that the republican party is supposed to stand for or do
they stand with trump the businessman from new york and could end the gop for conservative and damage the party's brand for american voters for jeberation. no -- generation. >> everybody tries to influence things. and national review and people joining in are talking about being conservative. whether or not you are moderate or centerist. they don't think he is conservative. and why wouldn't they urge people to vote against him especially when there are other alternatives. >> but movement conservatives like bob deal said trump is better between trump and cruz. >> whether or not they would agree with those things, i think
what you are finding from elected republicans is animosity toward cruz. they county like him and cruz made his name by calling of the republicans in washington virtually a bunch of liars and thieves and every other name in the book. so it is hard for them to wrap their arms around supporting him. part of it is, if you are a republican and you want the election to be a disaster and choosing between cruz and trump, they don't think either is a great option and trying to choose in their eyes something that is the least bad. but if you are a conservative, you tend to vote republican. and if you are a conservative you tend to vote republican because you see the party as a vehicle for conservative government. they don't feel trump would be
conservative. they are not that he would be moderate. they are concerned he would not be conservative. >> and cruz trying to take a swipe over trump and new york values. and trump fired back by invoking the name william buckley junior. >> not a lot of conservatives come out of manhattan. >> conservatives actually do come out of manhattan including william f. buckley and others, just so you understand. >> his nephew had this to say. >> i take this personally. i would ask donald trump to stop invoking william f. buckley at this moment. i take it personally. my uncle would never support his candidacy. he would never get behind this outrage and for donald trump to
tap in to that is offensive and i wish he would cut it out. >> i guess if the national review and theanger from bent bo zell make a difference? >> is national review going to influence trump supporters? no. is it going to reorient the election, no. are they raising a point for voters to think about that they might think about if other people can carry the message, sure. there is a lot of republican voters who are mad as heck and want to shake-up washington and probably want someone who agrees with them on most issues and if they give an extra thought of whether trump is that person. that is why there is undecided
voers in iowa and new hampshire. that is part of the debate. what do you want the candidate to believe. >> david drucker, thank you. >> thanks a lot. >> we want to hear from you. foxnews.com/happeningnow and get your thoughts in the conversation. >> bad news for the clinton campaign when it comes to hillary clinton's e-mail. catherine herridge has new information on what those e-mails may have contained and a russian bomber as it goes up in flames. that was the wrong video. investigators try to determine the cause of another deadly crash. this one here at home, involving an f-16. fighters are band of brothers and sisters.

>> fox news alert. sources telling fox news that one of hillary clinton's e-mails contained intelligence of human sfieing and considered to be the most sensitive category of intelligence. kathryn herridge has more from washington. >> reporter: heather, thank you and good afternoon. we have are confirmed one of the e-mails contained intelligence. hcs.0. this is the most sensitive category because it is it a jeopardy to the source. this is two individuals who are not author otherwised to speak on the intelligence. it is exceptional fragile and
unique community intelligence operations and methods that are not meant for public disclosure outside of the agency running. and this is never in unclassified channels. and a veteran with special ops and programs in his career said a disclosure like this is a very serious matter. >> there is a cause and effect between the disclosure of acceptsative material and impact on in the other end of that stekt rum and particular sources. >> we don't know the impact on the source and intelligence that was reported and the damage assessment that is required in an agency like this. and just to emphasize, this is among the sensitive programs and the most sensitive and it
involves individuals on the ground taking risk to gather information for the u.s. government. >> do we know about the nationality of the source? >> reporter: no, i have nothing beyond what i confirmed. this is a coding designed to protect human intelligence sources that are involved in ongoing operations. >> you have done a heck of the nows. new information on a store tore breaking yesterday onhappening now". a coroner is working to identify uh-huh man remains found when an f-16 went down. the pilot was taking part in the combat mission. it crashed in the northwest arizona desert. no word on what caused the accident. right now, firsthand look of a deadly plane explosion in
russia. it happen in an air base back in june in the ukraine. that video is resurfacing. two russian pilots were killed in the fire. they were on a bomber that exploded when they tried to take off. >> well, atf agents said president obama's action on guns don't work. orders from the white house are intended to keep gups out of the hands of criminals. but one agent said it goes after the wrong people. >> a man sent to prison for hiring someone to kill his wife could get another trial. the guy who killed her is changing his story. >> i want to get it out in the very beginning. did you have involvement in the murder. >> i did not. i did not hire or consphire and i was not in that garage with him at all. -z0.u
>> welcome back, a michigan man sent to prison for life for hiring someone to kill his wife may get a new trial. during his trial he was motivate issed prosecutors say by his secret lifestyle with his mistress. the handyman confessed to his role in the crime and now changing his story claiming that the husband actually owed him money for a job so he broke in the house planning to it steal something and that's where jane caught him. and he claims that that is when he strangled her. dan shore is a former prosecutor
and we'll talk about the case. he might get a new case? >> you have the person we know committed the murder originally said he was hireed to do it. and now saying and can recanting that he had nothing to do with the killing. what would be the handyman's motive to lie here? he will not get any benefit from helping the defense here. and basharro was convicted of trying to kill the handyman in jail. he said he can it because he killed his wife. in any event he certainly doesn't have a motive to help him but there might be a new trial if the evidence is found. >> it is a complicated story and they are not the best of guys out there, what is going to
happen here? >> it is it a complicated story, but it is enough to under mind the judge's confidence and jor's verdict. if he had testified in the trial, would he have supported the defense theory and said he had nothing to do with it. there is no scientific evidence in the case to support the fact that he murdered his wife. it helps to give him a shot. >> it helps to give the husband a shot the at a new trial. the handyman claimed that the police coerced him to finger print the husband. he said we will help you and you will get a lesser sentence if you help give bob basharia the
husband. >> the police were looking at the husband as a possible suspect. and he acted in a bizarre way. he had an alternative lifestyle and said he is about to have is a change in his life. this is not evidence for the murder. but it gave enough for the police. they put pressure on gentz to flip on the person who hired him. gentz is saying that the police went over board and led him to make a statement that is not true. that can come out in a hearing and a new trial. and that would be if the jury believe its. >> would there be a separate investigation in to the police. the police said we want him, meaning the husband.
>> the police are allowed to lie to suspects and allowed to trick the suspects and do things like that. and i don't think the police would be investigated. we welcome these types of police tactics. and the question is what he told the police is admissible and whether or not it is it reliable or based on police misconduct and police pressuring him to get him to say the statements and if he said that with hope of benefit. and if you have a statement to the police and you have a hope and benefit that has less reliability in court. this will come down to wlo whether that statement has weight and reliability. >> why did the prosecution rely on this guy in the first place. thank you for your opinions on this. >> have a great weekend. >> the u.s. is weighing his next
move against isis as ash carter lays out a plan to take out the terrorist. >> plus, we are watching the massive winter storm. johnathon is live in ashville, north carolina where it is snowing. >> reporter: much snow and ice is accumulating on the ground and creating treacherous conditions and i will have details as "happening now" continues. ns on my watch! try alka-seltzer heartburn reliefchews. they work fast and don't taste chalky. mmm...amazing. i have heartburn. alka-seltzer heartburn reliefchews. enjoy the relief.
>> more now on our top story. a winter storm taking aim in the country. some cases may see more than two feet of now. it is impacting parts of the southeast. live in ashville north carolina. >> hi, john. we have seen constant snowfall. and we have seen it mixing at times with freezing rain and that is causing serious problems not only creating treacherous road conditions and ice can accumulate on tree branches and utilities have repair crews on stand by. icy conditions are affecting greenville, mississippi and that is forcing the cancellation of many school cans including ole
miss. atlanta admissible schools are dismissing early today. and they are urging crews to treat the trouble spots. >> the tough part of the next 24 hours is 3:00 and 6:00. and that's when the rain will convert to snow and we need access to the streets so we can begin preparing them. >> reporter: george, a state government did the same thing. and parts of the efforts to keep nonessential personnel off of the streets. it is affecting many states that are not used to dealing with this much snowfall. >> going to be a mess. >> it is not often we have a weather live shot in north
carolina with that much snow. there is a new app that revolutionizes snow removal. how does it work? >> reporter: whether to plow or shovel. it is a choice to take into your bad back? ron is a physical therapist in pleas aptville, new york. a town that had over 15 now events last winter. unfortunately when people pick up the snow shovel. you can see an increase in knee injuries and back injuries. >> we see that every year as a result of shovelling snow. we warn our patientses not to do it if you don't have to. >> every year thousands of people are sent to the emergency room for injuries relating to shovelling snow and dozens of
death from heart attack. it is a driving force behind's new app for snow plowing. >> it and called uber of snow removal. type in your home address and get an immediate quite of how much it costs. >> exactly never before has technology allowed a user to summon a plow in real time. >> it has expanded over 30 markets and the there is a rating system that disposes of unreliable drivers. >> when you need a plow, everyone needs one at the same time. >> we track the real time gps of all providers and when an order is placed it goes to the closest on the route.

this as congress takes steps to formally authorize use of force. we'll talk to jillian turner who is a staffer under presidents bush and obama. and jillian to you first. i think a lot of americans would be surprised that there is no author zaugz to use method force against isis thus far. what is the hold up? >> the main hold up in here in this situation is that hawkish republicans on the right are reluctant to give president obama the authority. i have been advising people behind the scenes and would say publicly it is an important policy tool for the u.s. congress and they should take advantage of it. it is a way in which they have a say in the fight against isis
and shape the anti- isis coalition that the united states has led and can has 60 plus members. >> what do you think of the prospects of congress holding that vote? >> right now it is uncertain. i think it is a great move and smart move and right move to authorize the use of military force. the problem is, that republicans don't trust them to wage the war to win it. the it is it a time line with three year and limiting as that tells the enemy we don't want boots on the ground. we heard from ash carter, it is not that we need hundreds of thousands of troops, but without american leadership other partners will not join.
i hope it does get a vote and sends signals to enemies and allies and american people that we are in the fight to win it. >> but the other discussion jillian of training kurds and iraqis. we have tried that in serria and so far that hasn't gone particularly well? >> again, it is mostly due to the lack of military leadership and the united states had a heavier hand in really investing ground troops there, we would have a better influence and outcome. part of what secretary carter is saying, regardless of whether they are fighting in combat or training and advising, we need more americans on the ground in these countries. that is an obvious movement than a ground announcement. you don't have to retake major
suedes of territory through air strikes alone. >> pete, you were one of those troops on the ground. he won the office because of getting the troops out of iraq. how would you assess the situation. >> i was in iraq in 2006. and we came home and said we need more. the iraq surge and ded occasion and strategy that president push p put behind it put together a positive outcome. obama has more belief that troops led to it me violence. but the right application of military force leads to go outcomement without that force, you are picking between bad operations. and it gives you more opportunities. ash carter is making an obvious point here. and in iraq and syria.
acknowledging that it is different for sir is. ia theuation got worse and worse since we set the redline. and lots of bad policy. and the president is not committed to winning the war and uncertain where it will go. >> we have to leave the discussion there. thank you. >> president taking matters in his own hands and some say that will make l job harder because they have to target the wrong kind. >> and break through new research that help turn back mother time. can we actually say young forever? sounds good for me. canned can
>> right now promising new research to help us live longer and healthier lives. they join us live, doctor, i am intrigued what is it? >> here comes spiralling health care cost and a search for a majoric pill to turn back the clock. one group is making progress in the ya le school of medicine. >> we can have the ability to make cells and boosting the immountain system against the disease. >> the thymusgland deteriorates and use we have to restore it

funding. researchers in yale hope it would be available in doctor's office in 5- 10 years, very exciting. >> that is terrific. love that. thank you. >> law- abiding citizen want to keep guns out of the hands of bad guys. but a tf agents said the president's action keep the guns out of the hands of law- abiding citizens. hear what they have to say. yeah. yeah. then how'd i get this...
