west. some of the busiest highways in southern california are closed after a powerful storm triggered dangerous flooding. fast moving mudslides covered interstate 5, stranding cars and trapping drivers. no one was reported hurt. >> carter evans is in los angeles following the unfolding story. carter, tough morning there. >> reporter: good morning. yes, it is going to be a rough commute as the sun rises here in the west. these are the northbound lanes of interstate 5. at one point yesterday, this was in five feet of mud. it all happened so fast, cars were swamped. there were reports of people climbing on top of their vehicles to escape the flood water. >> 911! help! >> reporter: violent thunderstorms lashed southern california thursday. torrential rains fell 4 to 6 inches per hour, flooding streets and triggering powerful mudslides, leaving drivers
7:04 am
helpless. >> are we stuck yet? we're stuck. >> this area is devastated right now. >> reporter: california's busy interstate 5 became a river of mud, burying cars and leaving drivers stranded. firefighters rescued people from their vehicles and homes, swallowed in mud. >> mud just started pouring down the mountain, down the road, just kind of engulfed everything. >> oh, my god. run for your life! >> reporter: thousands of cars and trucks were backed up for miles. >> i've been out here for 24 years now. and i've never seen this much water in 24 years. you really can't tell how fast that's moving or how safe it is. >> reporter: the powerful system pounded the city of palmdale with golf ball sized hail and 60-mile-per-hour winds. this woman says she only had minutes to rescue 20 horses when her ranch began to flood. >> we want to pull them out immediately. within 45 seconds the water even became 3 feet higher. >> reporter: workers tell me
7:05 am
there were up to a hundred cars buried in mud right here on the interstate. they all had to be did you go out and towed away. much of this interstate will remain closed today because there is a thin layer of mud across it, and it is very slippery. >> carter, thank you. the house committee investigating the deadly 2012 benghazi attack is questioning hillary clinton's long time aide and confidant this morning. she's the highest ranking clinton official to meet with committee members. her campaign spokesman says this investigation has zero credibility. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. abedi will be interviewed behind closed doors. they is clinton's longest serving aide and has been at her side for 20 years. she climbed the ranks to become clinton's near constant
7:06 am
companion. recently released e-mails show the former secretary of state communicated with her more than almost anyone. the benghazi committee wants to ask her about events leading up to, during, and after the attack on the facilities. clinton has gotten bolder about criticizing the committee after since the house majority leader bragged the congressional investigation was hurting her in the polls. >> this committee is basically an arm of the republican national committee. >> reporter: she got some unexpected backup this week from a republican congressman, new york's richard hannah, who said in a radio interview: >> this may not be politically correct, but i think there was a big part of this investigation that was designed to go after people, an individual, hillary clinton. >> reporter: committee chair trey gowdy fired back in a statement, it is unfortunate
7:07 am
that people don't know why the committee has done what it's done or the results of its work. >> we have an important mission to solve the riddle of how this preventible incident led to the death of four americans, and no one to this date has been held accountable for that. >> reporter: republicans on the senate judiciary committee are also interested in abedin, accusing her of a conflict of interest for drawing salaries from both the clinton foundation and a consulting firm with ties to the clintons during her last six months at the state department. the benghazi committee says it will not get into abedin's employment today, that that is outside the scope of their work, but they insist, charlie, that they are doing serious nonpartisan work and that they're just not discussing their findings in public because of the sensitivity of the subject matter. >> nancy, thanks. this morning a message from joe biden's inner circle is raising new specification about the vice president's ambitions. the letter from a former senator
7:08 am
came out two days after the first democratic presidential debate. it urges biden's supporters to keep the faith while he decides whether to run. julianna goldman has more. >> reporter: good morning. the vice president's core supporters are pushing back against the narrative that hillary clinton's strong debate performance might have dissuaded him from getting in. he's putting former staffers on notice that a decision is expected soon. >> are you running for president? >> i'll answer in korean. >> reporter: on the steps of his home at the u.s. naval observatory, vice president joe biden couldn't escape a barrage of questions about his political future. >> have you made your decision yet? >> i can't hear you. >> have you made your decision yet? >> reporter: but he was on official business, greeting the south korean president. and as the press pool sprinted for a better shot, he gave no
7:09 am
indication about his latest thinking. biden has spent the last few days reaching out to top democrats in early voting states like iowa, new hampshire, and south carolina. people familiar with his deliberations say he and his team are aware of upcoming ballot deadlines. >> i'm not just running because i would be the first woman president. i'm running because i have a lifetime of experience. >> reporter: they say the first democratic debate was not a deciding factor for him. last night, former senator ted kaufman, who has known biden for more than four decades, sent a letter to a network of former staffers, readying the cavalry and a piece of his potential platform. he wrote that the vice president is aware of the practical demands of making a final decision soon. he has been in public and political life a long time and has a good grip on the mechanics around this decision. he detailed the kind of campaign biden would run, an optimistic
7:10 am
campaign, a campaign from the heart, a campaign consistent with his values, our values, and the values of the american people, and i think it's fair to say, knowing him as we all do, that it won't be a scripted affair. after all, it's joe. kaufman closed with, let's stay in touch. if he decides to run, we will need each and every one of you yesterday. this weekend the vice president will be in new york city, accepting a human rights awarded. norah, one source told us biden's decision could come in the next few days but cautions that he hasn't stuck to previously self-imposed deadlines. >> the candidates' newest fundraising reports include a surprise from donald trump. he's now using contributions to finance his own campaign. they raised $3.9 million in july, august, and september. trump had said he would pay for his campaign out of his own pocket. ben carson raised $20 million in the third quarter, more than any other republican. jeb bush was next with $13.4
7:11 am
million. the latest national poll shows trump and carson still we will ahead of the republican field. the fox news survey finds them just one point apart, 24% to 23%. ted cruz is third, followed by marco rubio. jeb bush is in third place with 8% support from republican primary voters. governor bush joins us in studio 57. we're pleased to have him back at this table. welcome. >> thank you. >> when many people looked at this campaign before it really began, you were the guy they thought would be the frontrunner. the first vote doesn't take place until february, but people look at those numbers i just repeated and say, what happened to jeb bush? >> i wasn't one of those that thought i was the frontrunner. i know i have to go tell the jeb story. people know me as george's boy and george's brother. they don't know that i was an effective conservative governor who disrupted the old order in florida and made big changes.
7:12 am
i tell that story each and every day and it resonates. >> why can't you have more resonance after to debates, what's the problem to connect with the voters about? >> it's not a problem. we're just starting. the important race is iowa, new hampshire, south carolina and nevada. then you go into the super tuesday states. we're building an organization in all those places. i feel pretty confident about where we are right now. >> bernie sanders said the american people are sick and tired of your e-mails, hillary clinton. are you sick and tired of the donald trump? he seems to be getting all the attention in the racial, and the other candidates are saying, look, we're over here, we have something to say. how are you and your team dealing with donald trump and his candidacy? >> first, i admire the fact that he's not politically correct. we're a little too up tight in this message. i admire that he's not embarrassed about his wealth. what else do i admire about him? let me think. i admire his family.
7:13 am
ultimately people are going to want to know who's going to sit behind the big desk, who will be making decisions that will impact millions of americans. >> is there anything about donald trump that makes you think you would not be safe and ordinary if he was there? >> i have no clue. that's the point. he talks about foreign policy, he talks about how putin ought to take care of isis, and the week before, isis ought to take care of assad. he would send refugees back to syria, to their slaughter. these are serious times. you need a person who has the temperament and leadership skills, to do it with passion and conviction but also has the leadership skills to lead. over the long haul that's the lane i will stay in. i don't know about donald trump's views of leadership because he talks about himself the whole time rather than what he would do. >> governor, i want to ask you a couple of policy, serious questions. you talked about being your own man. do you see your brother george
7:14 am
w. bush coming out on the campaign trail with you? >> i don't know. he's been helpful raising money. he's been giving me advice. he's the last republican to have been elected, and the one before that. he's the one guy i rely on on, you know, the ebbing and flowing of politics. it's pretty wild. he's done it. >> let me talk to you about afghanistan. president obama leaves office in 15 months, essentially saying the drawdown will be left to his successor. you've said obama is short changing our military commandser. be specific. how many troops would you leave on the ground in afghanistan? >> i would take the recommendation of the general that was responsible for it who is now the chairman of the joint chiefs. 10,000 troops or 9800 troops. i think that's the proper place to be. >> so you agree with president obama's -- >> without at timeline. the minute you create a timeline, your opponents, your enemies, are organized for waiting you out. i think that's the proper thing to do. i'm pleased the president has not worried about a campaign promise six years ago.
7:15 am
conditions change. and i think he made the right decision to keep troops on the ground. but it looks like it's political, cut it in half and off we go. and you're right, the drawdown will take place in 2017, so the next president will have a chance to engage with the commanders and make a decision based on a long term strategy. we have none, really, in the middle east right now. we're just reacting to events. it looks pretty ugly. >> at what point do you think the president needs to react more, and how, to russia's increasing presence if syria? >> he should have earlier, because that void now is filled. we see even cuban generals in syria. we see the iranians as well as the russians. >> what should he do? >> create safe harbor for refugees, allowing us to rebuild the remnants of the syria free army. we need to engage the arab world to provide support for a unified effort. we need to have no fly zones.
7:16 am
and the argument is, well, we'll get into conflict with russia. well, maybe russia shouldn't want to be in conflict with us. this is a place where american leadership is desperately needed. russia is there to prop up as d assad. we're there to deal with both assad and isis. we should garner the support of europe and the middle east countries to do just that. >> your advice to joe biden this morning is what? >> continue to speak korean as effectively as he does. >> all right, governor, thank you. nice to see you. >> thanks for joining us today. this morning escalating violence in israel has many people living in fear. israeli troops are clashing with protestors following weeks of violent attacks. palestinians threw fire bombs at another site which some believe is the tomb of joseph in the west bank. security forces took extra precautions before prayers
7:17 am
ended. johnathan vigliotti has more. >> reporter: good morning. israeli defense officials confirmed another attack took place, the victim a soldier. officials say the attacker was a palestinian disguised as a news photographer. the attacker was killed. the officer is recovering. the last day of rage was on tuesday, sparking four separate attacks on israelis and clashes between israeli security and palestinian youth. already, overnight in the west bank, israeli officials say dozens of palestinians set fire to the tomb of joseph, a sacred israeli site. israeli officials wanted to limit access to palestinians. in the last three weeks palestinians have attacked israelis at least a dozen times. in most cases using knives. israelis say they have no other option but to defend themselves,
7:18 am
and jerusalem's mayor has called on israeli citizens with gun permits to carry their weapons out in public. palestinian president mahmoud abbas has condemned the torching of that tomb and is calling for peaceful resistance. meanwhile, israeli defense remains on high alert. >> thank you, johnathan vigliotti in jerusalem. this morning, this morning, the mets are baseball's king of new york. >> the pitch, swung and missed strike 3, put it in the box. the new york mets aren't going to the national league championship series. >> the mets eliminated the dodgers with last night's 3-2 win in los angeles. daniel murphy was the unlikely star. he scored the time run after stealing an extra base on a walk. murphy then hit the game-winning home run in the sixth inning. the mets play the cubs for the national league pennant starting tomorrow night. all of us can't wait. >> that's going to be good. >> congratulations to them.

8:09 am
is right for you. once-a-week tanzeum is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes, along with diet and exercise. once-a-week tanzeum works by helping your body release its own natural insulin when it's needed. tanzeum is not recommended as the first medicine to treat diabetes or in people with severe stomach or intestinal problems. tanzeum is not insulin. it is not used to treat type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis, and has not been studied with mealtime insulin. do not take tanzeum if you or your family have a history of medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you're allergic to tanzeum or any of its ingredients. stop using tanzeum and call your doctor right away if you experience symptoms of a serious allergic reaction which may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing; if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe stomach pain that will not go away and may move to your back, with or without vomiting; or if you have symptoms of thyroid cancer which include a lump or swelling in your neck,
8:10 am
hoarseness, trouble swallowing, or shortness of breath. before using tanzeum, talk to your doctor about your medical conditions, all medicines you're taking, if you're nursing, pregnant, or may become pregnant. and about low blood sugar and how to manage it. taking tanzeum with a sulfonylurea or insulin increases your risk for low blood sugar. common side effects with tanzeum include diarrhea, nausea, injection site reactions, cough, back pain, and cold or flu symptoms. some serious side effects can lead to dehydration which may cause kidney failure. ask your doctor if adding once-a-week tanzeum is right for you. go to to learn if you may be eligible to receive tanzeum free for 12 months. make every week a tanzeum week.

8:42 am
country if not the world. >> you're talking about richie incognito and jonathan martin who were both on your team. >> that was the incident. >> richy was suspended for -- accused of making racial and homophobic slurs. how do you think football can help with this, stephen? what is the reaction you've been getting around the league since you started? >> i've talked to -- it's not just the national football league. i mean if there is anyplace in society where there is equality, it's in sports. so it's not the leagues that have the problem. it's really the country today where there is discrimination. it really is our problem and we can see what it does all the time. but using sports to create change and bringing all the leagues together, there's no league that has a real problem with that. but using sports to create change because people really look to sports and have such an important role in our society today. >> heroes and role models. >> right. exactly. no matter what age you are, you're a role model if you're an
8:43 am
athlete. everybody looks up to you. so using the power of that and together with education, put together an organization that can then really change, create a new paradigm. >> you talk about football. you just fired your coach. >> i mean, he's a good man. you know, the team wasn't performing. and the role is -- it is objective. you measure wins and losses. the team wasn't performing this year. we spent a lot of money. everybody had high hopes. and, you know, after four games, there wasn't any real improvement. so, you know, you don't want to waste a year. i'm very still optimistic about this year. >> you said you admire and respect coach philbin. you considered him a friend. i think that's a difficult thing to do. >> a very difficult thing. probably one of the most difficult decisions. >> how do you determine it's a coacher problem and not a player problem? >> can you look and see -- i
8:44 am

8:45 am
his life. he has a small organization. i mean donald is the world's best promoter, there's no question about it. and i don't think he's really stepped, you know, really in a position to really run the united states of america. >> but he lays out that his business experience that he run the trump organization, that he's worth, he says, close to $10 billion. that that qualifies him. >> well, i think if he can show that he can bring people on and not just talk about it, create a cabinet. i mean people are frustrated with politics today. that's why his popularity is what it is. and i think -- and what's odd is it's continuing. when you look around him, you know, i think it surprises a lot of new yorkers. >> maybe the question is, too, is there a sense amongst -- since you've been involved in republican politics that trump may actually become the nominee? >> there's a good chance of that. i mean it appears more every day, doesn't it? >> yes.
