"desperado." "lying eyes." their greatest hits, the second best-selling album of all time. >> the soundtrack of so many of our lives. it just takes you back. >> absolutely heartbroken when i heard the news. >> we're thinking, again, another great one. "tequila sunrise." i could go on and on. we'll get to that ahead. we want to get right to the blast of winter frigid temperatures for tens of
millions of americans and look at that. 21 below zero in wisconsin. that cold air extending all the way east. and the west coast hit with another big storm this morning. concerns about flooding and rob starts us off with that. good morning, rob. >> good morning, robin. yet another day of heavy rain across northern california. they've consistency seen the wet stuff. high energy with this. wind, as well. a flood advisory out for the bay area. winter storm warnings posted above donner summit. the system coming through today, by the way, is heading toward the east coast. where it is cold enough for snow. we're watching the development of this. potentially, a big storm as we head towards friday and saturday. that's the latest from here. back to you guys. the race for president now. and on the republican side, donald trump and ted cruz locked in a battle for iowa, where the caucuses are dominated by conservative and evangelical voters.
abc's tom llamas son the trail in des moines. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. and neither candidate is turning the other cheek and now cruz's aggressively going after trump to draw distinction with voters and according to cruz, trump is getting rattled. this morning, donald trump sending a signal to a key iowa voting bloc, saying he can do something senator ted cruz cannot. >> i'll be much stronger in protecting the evangelicals. >> reporter: in an interview with the christian broadcasting network, trump comparing himself with ronald reagan. >> he didn't read the bible every day seven days a week, but he was a great president. >> reporter: on monday, donald trump quoting scripture at jerry falwell's evangelical liberty university. fumbling the bible verse typically known as second corinthians. >> but 2 corinthians, right? 2 corinthians, 3:17. that's the whole ball game. >> reporter: and now rush limbaugh issuing this warning to voters. >> there are a lot of conservatives who think that he is a wolf in sheep's clothing,
that he is a traditional lifetime new yorker and that means something. >> reporter: and according to cruz, he's chipping away at trump. >> don't listen to any candidate. look to our actions. as the scriptures say, you shall know them by their fruits. >> reporter: while trump is taking the fight to the airwaives, the cruz team believes that iowa will be won on the ground. at cruz head quarters in des moines, volunteers try to make 1200 calls a day. >> this is what we're convinced wins iowa. >> reporter: but iowa, nor new hampshire, have ever seen a campaign or a candidate like trump. [ dog barks ] >> what was that? is that a dog? >> hillary. >> uh-oh, it's hillary. >> reporter: and trump has three events today here in iowa. he says there will be a big announcement at the last event, his first event is in john wayne's hometown. it's about 9 degrees out here in iowa. i hope he brought several layers to put underneath those navy blue suits he loves so mch.
much. >> you look cold, tom. let's bring in jon karl to talk more about it. it cannot be more engaged. trump unloaded on cruz. cruz doing the same thing to trump but what about this factor now, these talk show hosts like rush limbaugh weighing in. >> reporter: we may have reached a pivotal point in this campaign where those influential voices on talk radio are starting to turn on donald trump. until now these have been some of trump's most reliable cheerleaders but in the latest fight, they're siding with ted cruz, not just rush limbaugh, mark levine yesterday said trump should cut the crap with his attacks on cruz. so that new york values attack from cruz drove people right back to what trump himself said 20 years ago. as you know, he said he was pro-abortion rights, open to gay marriage, because he is from new york, not iowa. this is the attack that could really hurt him. >> evangelical voters could make all the difference in iowa. you saw that direct pitch yesterday at liberty university from trump. >> reporter: yeah, now, evangelicals have never been the
core constituency for trump. after all, this is somebody who said he never really asks god for forgiveness. yesterday at liberty, he did something we hear from on the trail a lot, lumping together his book, "the art of the deal" with the bible. listen to this. >> i always say, a deep, deep second to the bible, the bible is the best. the bible. the bible blows it away. there's nothing like the bible. but "the art of the deal" was the best-selling business book and obama didn't read it. and kerry didn't read it. >> reporter: so if you look in iowa, cruz is on the rise largely because he's winning among evangelicals. though, george, i have to say, if you look at national polls, the most recent still has trump with a big lead among evangelicals nationwide. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. george, as you know, republicans on the campaign trail taking aim at the white house over that prisoner swap with iran and while the families of those freed americans are celebrating with their loved ones, another family is feeling betrayed.
abc's brian ross is here with that. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, robin. that's right. the criticism is coming not only from republican presidential candidates but from the family of the one american who was not part of the deal, the american left behind. under the deal, the u.s. released from prison seven men convicted of helping iran's nuclear program and dropped charges against 14 more. republicans are calling it a bad one-sided deal. >> fact is we shouldn't have to trade anything to get our citizens back home. >> we've got to shake our head at how it's happening. >> reporter: no one more upset with the obama administration than the family of the american seen in this hostage video who was not part of the deal. >> please help me. >> reporter: former fbi agent bob levinson who disappeared in iran almost nine years ago. his family says it heard the news on television, not from the white house. >> i'm very disappointed, i'm -- feel extremely betrayed by them. they have done nothing to get in touch with me other than after i
asked them to. >> reporter: levinson's wife christine and son dan said the white house has gone back on its word. >> we have been given assurances over the years that my dad would be a top priority to get him home as much as everybody else, if not more, because he's been held for almost nine years. >> reporter: a senior administration official tells abc news that levinson was part of the negotiations, but that the u.s. does not know why he was not ultimately included in the swap. mrs. levinson, do you consider whether bob might have, in fact, died in captivity? >> no, i will never consider that until i have proof. i believe every day he's trying to come home to our family. we will never give up. >> reporter: the white house says the iranians have promised to determine the whereabouts of levinson, something his family says the iranians know full well and have known since he was first taken captive almost nine years ago. >> our hearts go out to the levinson family. that water crisis in flint, michigan, where dozens of national guardsmen are on the ground this morning and new
lawsuits set to be filed this afternoon. abc's alex perez has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, the flint water scandal erupting, protesters rallying outside michigan governor rick snyder's home. >> arrest rick snyder! >> reporter: class-action lawsuits expected to be filed today against city and state officials over the ongoing water crisis. newly revealed e-mails show when officials switched the water source from lake huron to the flint river to save money, they waited nearly five months to warn the public of the toxic levels of lead created by the switch. >> my baby and i, we breaking out in itching from bathing in the water. i don't like the idea my baby can't drink. >> reporter: the state attorney general now investigating why it took the governor and other officials so long to respond. >> every day -- >> reporter: president obama declaring a federal emergency here, national guard troops pouring into flint to pass out water and filters. even celebrities now trying to help residents. cher teaming up with a company
to donate more than 180,000 bottles of water, tweeting, maybe fellow artists will help flint. and one of the city's most famed sons, filmmaker michael moore, calling for the governor of michigan to be arrested. >> we're all angry. this was purposely done. they knew it was poisoned. they knew it was toxic. >> reporter: the system has been switched back to lake huron water. but the river damaged the pipe system so badly, water is still not safe to drink. and officials here say it could be months before it's safe to drink water here. the governor is expected to tackle this tonight in his state of the state address, robin. >> looking forward to that, all right, alex, thank you. now to those plunging gas prices happening all over the country. take a look at this. the price war in michigan sending prices dipping to 47 cents a gallon. abc's rebecca jarvis is here with more on this and, rebecca, how low will they go? >> they go so low, robin. good morning to you. most of the country isn't going to be paying quite the same as
those customers at that gas station in northern michigan, but prices this week should drop another 10 to 20 cents. the national average this morning is now $1.89, 48 states have seen prices drop this year. and gas buddy is forecasting we will save an additional $17 billion at the pump this year. it's great news for consumers, robin, but, of course, there is the other side to this story. >> yes, there always is. and you bring this out. there is a downside to those low prices. what is it? >> exactly. it is all the people in this country who are employed by energy companies. because prices have dropped so far, so fast, it also puts their jobs in jeopardy. so we do think of them this morning, too, robin. >> we do keep that in mind, rebecca, thank you. to that scandal in pro tennis overshadowing the australian open. tennis officials are denying the allegations of match-fixing, as some of the sport's big es stge stars demand answers. ryan smith here with the story. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning,
george. the australian open is in full swing. but this scandal is dominating the headlines. even serene in williams speaking out, saying she was totally unaware of it. and all of her opponents seem to play hard. but now, more stars on the hard court want to know exactly who has tainted their game. this morning, it's not the play at the australian open garnering headlines, but the reports from the bbc and buzzfeed which allege that tennis authorities suppressed evidence of match-fixing by players, failing to investigate around 26,000 suspicious matches. this morning, the sport's top stars, roger federer and andy murray, speaking out. wanting to know just who was involved. >> i would love to hear names, you know, then, at least it's concrete stuff and you can actually debate about it. >> it's bad obviously, you want to be made aware of the people that are, you know, potentially involved in this. >> reporter: while the association of tennis professionals deny the allegations players were paid tens of thousands of dollars to deliberately throw matches, buzzfeed said they have text messages that prove it.
>> the evidence actually included 82 text messages that one of these players had exchanged with the ringleader of the sicilian gambling syndicate. >> millions and millions of bucks are bet on it and tennis is the easiest to fix because it involves one person. >> reporter: world number one novak djokovic admitted someone on his team was approached in 2007 about throwing a first round match in exchange for $200,000. >> i was not approached directly and, of course, we -- we threw it away right away. i mean, it didn't even get to me. >> reporter: he and other stars like murray say it's hypocritical while players are coming under such scrutiny a major sponsor of the australian open is william hill, a british betting agency where you can bet on the winner of matches, sets, and games. that gambling sponsor william hill is not implicated in the scandal. they're saying their partnership is part of the solution to integrity issues, not part of the problem. how much gambling is there in tennis? according to aussie betting company tab corp $16 million
were wagered on the australian open on the first day, guys. >> betting just on a game. >> reporter: it could be games, sets, matches. that's part of the allegations here. >> wow, okay, thanks very much. amy with today's other top stories. a traffic nightmare in san francisco. >> yeah, that's right. the famous bay bridge between san francisco and oakland is back open this morning, after a crowd protesting police brutality blocked traffic. they drove their cars onto the bridge and stopped one in each lane before then chaining themselves together. police eventually cut those chains and arrested 25 protesters. well, crews searching for 12 marines missing off the coast of hawaii have found four life rafts in the water but so far no sign of those marines. they've all been missing since last thursday when their helicopters apparently collided during a training mission. and a new warning about climate change, scientists say the oceans are warming up faster than previously thought. they say since 1997 the world's oceans have absorbed the same amount of heat energy as they absorbed in the previous 130
years, raising more concern about rising sea levels and severe storms. we have breaking news. the jus sises have agreed to review president obama's plan to shield 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. more than two dozen states have challenged the plan, which mostly benefits the parents of u.s. citizens. this court case could have major ramifications on the presidential race. the case is expected to be argued in april and decided by dow june. we'll have reaction throughout the day right here at abc news. finally, this could change the world or at least my world. scientists claim they've invented the world's first hangover-free alcohol. it's called koryo liquor made from the plant extract ginseng and apparently replaces sugar with burnt rice. here's the caveat, the so-called miracle drink was brewed in north korea and let's say the north koreans have been known to overstate their discoveries. reports that kim jong-un oversaw
the production himself and this is my favorite quote from "the pyongyang times". it's highly appreciated as it is suave and causes no hangover. >> suave. >> nothing says suave like burnt rice. >> or kim jong-un. >> exactly, exactly. and that's real combination. i'm going to switch gears. thanks, amy. i do want to celebrate, we all do, the life of eagles co--fo d co--founder glenn frey. so many celebrating the rock 'n' roll legend this morning. he passed away at the age of 67 and abc's chris connelly takes a look back at his incredible contribution to the music world. ♪ take it easy >> reporter: as a principal singer, songwriter and guitarist with the eagles, glenn frey helped to define the sound and sensibility of southern california rock in the 1970s. ♪ take it easy >> reporter: that 1972 career-defining smash, just the first in their steady stream of

abc's linzie janis here with the story. good morning, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, george. michelle carter was roughly 50 miles away from her boyfriend when he killed himself. but prosecutors say she had been pressuring him to do it via text message, and was even talking on the phone with him when he ended his life. this morning, massachusetts teenager michelle carter is one step closer to standing trial for allegedly convincing her 18-year-old boyfriend conrad roy to commit suicide. prosecutors arguing carter now 18 encouraged him in dozens of text messages. >> she goes back, when are you going to do it? stop ignoring the question. question mark, question mark, question mark, question mark. you can't keep pushing it off. >> reporter: roy died of carbon monoxide poisoning in july 2014 after locking himself inside his truck in this kmart parking lot. at the time, prosecutors say he was on the phone with carter for 47 minutes. at one point telling her he was
getting out of the truck because he feared it wasn't working. >> he was scared. she told him to get back in the car. >> reporter: just days before in another text message carter writing, don't be scared. you're finally to be happy in heaven. >> it's inconceivable. i just don't understand how someone could do that. to encourage someone they claim to love. >> reporter: according to court documents, roy had attempted suicide and had been hospitalized before he even met carter. and in one text message two weeks before his suicide, he expressed his desire the take his own life, writing, i can't get better. i already made my decision. the defense now trying for a second time to have the involuntary manslaughter charge dropped. >> he has, in fact, brainwashed her to the point where she's now accepting his idea of this is my only option. >> reporter: in a statement to abc news, the defense says, michelle's communications were
by no means threatening. and that roy made his on conscious decision to take his own life. adding, this is a tragedy, not a crime. carter is due in court next month. if convicted she faces up to 20 years in prison. george? >> okay, linzie. let's talk to dan abrams about this right now. those texts are so horrifying to read. does this brainwashing offense have a chance of getting the charges dismissed? >> yeah, this is not an easy case for prosecutors primarily because of the law. meaning prosecutors are going to have to show that she caused his death. now, if there was an assisted suicide ban in massachusetts the way there are in more than half the states it would be much easier. they'd have to prove she helped, encouraged, assisted. they don't have that kind of law in massachusetts. so they're charging her with involuntary manslaughter which makes it a much harder case. for prosecutors to win. >> it may not go to trial. >> it's possible a court will ultimately throw it out. >> you're launching a new website. tell us about it. >> lawnewz.com with a "z." i've got a big piece on with why
think the two defendants in "making a murderer" are guilty. why the cosby charges could be dismissed. and a lot of 2016 information. >> congratulations. >> thank you very much. >> newz with a "z." coming up, secret weapons chelsea clinton and ivanka trump, pitted against each other. what we're learning about their behind-the-scenes friendship. that's next. come on back. od clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding.
don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for 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. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. toto the nation's capitalut to support an important cause that can change the way you live for years to come.

it's made my life better. and i do feel and hope that it's made other people's lives better. >> reporter: the 26-year-old "nashville" star checked herself into a facility in october to help treat her postpartum depression, something her character on the abc show also struggled with. life imitating art. >> help me get my life back. >> a source of the show has told us that that story line was developed long before hayden gave birth. the show did give her time, though, to go through the treatment off camera as her character on camera went through the similar situation. >> reporter: the first time mom to 1-year-old kaya is just 1 of 600,000 moms across the country diagnosed with this form of depression every year, and she hopes talking openly about it will help break the stigma of the disease. >> she believes that she's going to be a more positive role model for her daughter showing her that she can be a proud, confident woman while admitting what's going on inside. >> i want to put out a good example for my daughter and tell her that she can be anyone she wants, and she does not have to
be afraid that somebody's not going to like it because no matter what you do, there's always going to be somebody who doesn't like it. >> reporter: sharing her story, she says, has helped her heal. >> i was floored by the positive response and really happy that i can stand up for the women who are out there suffering from this and let them know that it's okay and they're not alone. >> reporter: hayden says she is refusing to stay silent, not as a role model for her daughter but also for all those women who are struggling. she wants to send a clear message that struggling with post partum doesn't mean you're weak and certainly does not mean you're a bad mom. robin? >> not at all. juju, thank you. and here with us now, abc's chief women's health correspondent, jen ashton. i know you want to weigh in on this. you were watching and hearing the things that hayden had to say, but before we talk about postpartum in particular we want to acknowledge there is a wide range of feelings that women have following birth. >> oh, absolutely. and as juju just said, this doesn't make you a bad mom.
this makes you normal. it makes you human. in fact, we have a list of the life's most stressful psychological events and, you know, you have things on there like death of a spouse, divorce, pregnancy, birth of a child, that's on that list, that is a significant life stressor, and we also have to bring -- we have to broaden the scope a little bit, robin. yes, here we're talking about the natural birth mother. but make no mistake, if you bring a new baby into your home, it can affect the partner, the spouse, the entire family. it's a major event. >> sometimes we hear, oh, the mother just has the blues, has the baby blues. when, though -- what's the criteria that you know that it has extended far beyond that to depression? >> right, and you know, i've delivered over 1500 babies. so i've seen every possible manifestation of maternal behavior here. i think postpartum blues is where you're going to see some crying, some tearfulness. you're going to have some trouble sleeping and eating. you might be unsure how to care for your baby. that's kind of normal and these
symptoms or feelings typically will last about two weeks. when you make the jump to postpartum depression, which affects anywhere from 10% to 20% of moms, so we're talking a lot of women here, this is not subtle. these are intense feelings, overwhelming sadness. you cannot perform what we call your activities of daily living. you can't care for yourself. you might have trouble caring for your baby and in severe situations you have thoughts of harming yourself or your baby. >> well, we heard in juju's report, 600,000 women a year diagnosed with this. >> right. >> if you're a new mom or have a loved one and you suspect something isn't right, what do you do? >> you have to speak up and ask for help. it's not a sign of weakness. it's a sign of strength. and at the end of the day, it's about your health and your baby's health. so asking for help is the first step. >> there are various treatments. >> a lot of treatments. they range from medication, talk therapy, in severe cases hospitalization, but remember this is out there. it does not discriminate. it can affect the celebrity as well as the average everyday mom. we need to talk about it more. >> and we're so glad that hayden
is leading that conversation and the manner in which she's doing it. >> absolutely. >> all right, jen, going to be busy again. you can take your questions, she'll take them throughout the morning. you can go to drjashton on twitter or go to our facebook page. amy? >> all right, robin. well, let's turn now to "the bachelor" bombshell that has so many people talking this morning. spoiler alert, if you have not watched yet, three women are gone, and one of them chose to leave. abc's reena ninan has the very latest. >> reporter: tears flowing and tempers flaring. >> go away. >> me? >> leave me the [ bleep ] alone. >> reporter: week three of "the bachelor" delivering plenty of drama as personalities clash. >> she is not letting anything get in her way. >> no. she's very aggressive. >> reporter: olivia making enemies. >> i would love more, more, more, more time with him and i'm going to do whatever. >> to no one's surprise olivia steals ben right away. >> does anyone else want to go on my date? >> reporter: jubilee's one-on-one date off to an

exclusive interview her take on all the drama after having a front row seat. >> lace, i personally really like her. she's a very sweet girl. i think we all get a little bit different when we drink but i think she'll learn her lesson. >> reporter: and revealing her pick for ben's future wife. >> i'm team caila. she's my soul sister. i really love her, and hopefully it will work out for ben with her. >> reporter: for "good morning america," reena ninan, abc news, new york. >> all right, joining us with her take on last night's drama, "bachelor" super fan and co-host of "the view," michelle collins. self-proclaimed super fan. >> i sure am. >> last night's episode, lace leaving, were you as shocked as everyone else? >> this was the like elimination kind of heard around the world although she left of her own accord. >> to better herself. >> to better herself. which, was, like, i always felt lace was reality tv crazy and i loved her for it and then i was
