the three-time grammy winner said she got sick just before the show. after seeing her idol whitney houston sing, nothing was going to stop this. justin timberlake getting mixed reviews. and janet jackson was a no show. janet did warn us all ahead of time that she had no plans to show up. still the janet jackson appreciation day was trending and into last night. those are some of our top stories on this monday, february 5th. >> from abc news, this is "world news now." >> so there was a football game. >> there was a football game. >> and it lived up to the hype.
the eagles have never won a super bowl before. the last championship was in 1960, before the super bowl even started.hy they had foe fireworks, broad street was crowded. >> worst of all the eagles were playing the power house new england patriots. quarterback tom brady and head coach, bill belichick have combined for four super bowl victories. and even named it most powerful player of the season. >> nick foles started the season on the bench as the back up. he has -- he was with another
team last season and had thought about quitting at one point. >> couple years ago there was a time where i was thinking about hanging up the cleats. and i think as people we deal with struggles and that was a moment in my life where i thought about it and i prayed about it and i'm grateful we made this decision to come back and play. >> foles is super bowl mvp. and also the only player to throw and catch touchdowns in the same super bowl game. the trick play gave philadelphia a 10-point lead at half time. and the patriots attempted a very similar play. only brady dropped the ball. >> oh! giselle once complained that tom can't throw and catch the ball after they lost their previous super bowl. so he tried. it didn't necessarily play out. they'll be heading back to philadelphia where it's a little bit warmer than things were in minneapolis. at least there was no snow
expected today in minneapolis. >> which is still good for those celebrating at this hour. not so good for the southwest. the fast moving storm is passing through. it's likely to cause travel disruptions later today and this evening. we'll move on to the other big story. we'll have more on philadelphia's victory in a moment but they're blaming a freight rail operator. csx was responsible for tracks and signals. investigators say the miami-bound train was probably on the wrong track when it slammed into a parked, unmanned freight train. >> two amtrak workers died in the crash, more than 100 people were injured. the crash woke them up and forced them out into the cold. >> my daughter and i were laying side by side when the actual
train crashed. together, we were thrown on to the floor. we actually, i mean, i had my arms around her when we hit the ground. but, you know, the key piece about it is we just kind of stood up and the amtrak personnel was outstanding on our car to help us get off. and you can't say enough about the first responders. >> the csx says it's working with federal investigators and has not contacted. they have offered condolences of the families of the two people who died. this is the third deadly crash involving amtrak trains in less than two months. president trump and the first lady are back at the white house after watching the super bowl at their private golf club in florida. >> following the game, the president tweeted, congratulations to the philadelphia eagles on a great super bowl victory. he took a swipe at the earlier nfl protest saying, quote, we proudly stand for the national
anthem and last night, no player took the knee. but in washington some of the fellow republicans are pushing back against his claim of being cleared by that republican memo. >> reporter: the president insists the newly released gop memo totally vindicates trump in the russia probe. but many republicans on the house intelligence committee don't agree. >> i don't agree with some of my colleagues. >> i don't think it has any impact on the russia probe. i was involved in it. >> it would be a mistake for anyone to suggest the special counsel shouldn't complete his work. >> reporter: republicans now defend the release of that memo by saying it exposed a problem with the fisa warrant process. the safeguards to protect american citizens from government ease dropping. >> there's sweet revenge in it for the family. if they wouldn't have done this, this stuff would be going on.
>> reporter: from the president's son -- >> they weaponized the fbi and the doj to attack the dually elected president of the united states. >> reporter: to the california congressman who wrote the gop memo. >> but i think the american people understand the fbi should not go to secret courts using funds to open up investigations to get warrants on the other political parties. that happens in banana republic governments. >> reporter: but just three weeks ago, these same lawmakers all voted to reauthorize the program. congress passed the bill overwhelmingly and the president signed it. democrats say president trump cannot use this issue as a pretext to fire the deputy attorney general or the special counsel. >> this would be an extreme event and one i say with some caution could come at a price.
nobody, including the president is above the law. >> reporter: the president now heads back to washington in, in addition to all of this, there's the possibility of another government shutdown. the stop gap funding measure lasts until just february the 8th. if they are unable to come up with a compromise, the government could shut down again. david wright, abc news, west palm beach. the nfl is mourning the death of ed win jackson. he and another man were hit bay suspected drunk driver as they stood outside hair car on an indiana highway. the suspect fled the scene but was later captured. the colts say in a statement that they are heart broken by jackson's death. he was only 26. overseas, we're learning new details about a shooting spree in central italy. a right wing extremist targeted african immigrants.
