7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." norah o'donnell is off. kristine johnson of our new york station wcbs is with us. fbi divers will resume their search this morning for what may be a critical include in the san bernardino investigation. divers are combing through a lake three miles from the shooting scene. >> syed rizwan farook and tashfeen malik may have been at the lake before the killings. the killers may have left an important piece of computer equipment there. john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. divers will soon begin searching this lake for ha hard driving missing from the home the shooters shared. there's no guarantee the divers
7:04 am
left si will find what they're looking for. the fbi has said it's already searched the park. searching the lake itself was the next logical step. >> we did have a lead that indicated the subjects came into this area. >> reporter: the fbi continues to interview farook's friend enrique marquez, the man investigators say purchased the rifles the couple used in the attack. cbs news has learned he's telling authorities he and farook abandoned a planned attack in 2012. that same year, a separate attack was thwarted. the fbi is investigating whether farook and marquez had ties to those would-be terrorists. >> there may be connections that are multiple degrees of separation. we've got to find that out. >> reporter: marquez's friends and relatives thursday expressed their surprise that marquez could be involved. one described him as, quote, goofy and dorky. he struck a lighthearted tone in in news interview that ran in april, when he ran to help save
7:05 am
a friend's dog. >> i'm really out of shape. i'm sore now. >> reporter: marquez's mother won't say if she's had contact with her son since the incident. but she imagines he is scared. she says, "he was a good person in the house with me. he would take care of me when i was sick." his mother also said she was unaware of her son's major to a russian immigrant related to farook by marriage. friends say the couple did not live together. meanwhile, investigators are looking at the female shooter and the fiance visa that she received here before arriving here last year. apparently five u.s. agencies vetted her for that visa. none of them found links to terrorism. >> john, thanks. stunning new numbers from the treasury department show how much money isis makes selling oil. one official says it could be up
7:06 am
to $40 million a month. that is around $500 million a year. the u.s. says syria's government is one of the buyers. elizabeth palmer is in london. she looks at how oil is changing the war against isis. elizabeth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, it's a war that's being fought on many fronts. and one of the top new priorities is strangling isis's revenue. and right at the top of the list of financial targets is the oil business. u.s. and coalition planes have now begun to bomb tankers of oil sold by isis to syria, part of an effort to cut off an estimated $40 million a month the group makes from petroleum sales. and in the cynical economics of war, some of that oil even goes to president assad's government, isis's sworn enemy. most of the oil in syria is in isis territory. once pumped, it's moved by
7:07 am
tanker to be sold locally or smuggled over the border to iraq and turkey. the coalition began bombing isis refineries last year. and the russians have now joined in, choosing oil-related bombing targets. that may have made a dent in isis's ability to supply oil clean enough to be used. but it didn't stop it. matthew phillips is with bloomberg. >> we overestimated, really, the damage that we did, the long term damage, and underestimated their ability to kind of didn't to that. >> reporter: syrian locals simply set up crude refineries, basically cooking the oil in pits in the desert before selling it on to traders who get it to market. attacks on what are technically isis-linked operations like this will inevitably kill innocent civilians who are simply working in it to survive. one more thought. while cutting off revenue will
7:08 am
hurt isis, no question, it won't bring the group to collapse. solid numbers are hard to come by, but the best estimates say isis is making twice as much money on widespread what they call taxes on every person and business living under their control. >> elizabeth palmer in london, thanks. breaking news from afghanistan, the taliban is taking credit for an attack near the spanish embassy. an apparent car bomb went off 90 minutes ago in a section of kabul where there are several foreign missions. the bombing was followed by gunfire. the taliban says the target was a guest house. a nearby hospital says on twitter it's treating seven afghan patients. no official word of any casualties at the embassy at this hour. a cbs us in poll out this morning show most persons oppose donald trump's idea to stop muslims from entering of the united states. two thirds of those questioned say it goes against the primary

7:10 am
bring both those campaigns down. >> i really believe and expect senator ted cruz to be the nominee in 2016. >> reporter: in iowa, cruz landed the coveted endorsement of bob vander plaats, a prominent social conservative. ben carson appears to be fading. his support has tumbled 13 points since the last cbs news/"new york times" poll, dropping to third place. cruz is now second, up 12 points. >> we just can't forward anymore to be so politically correct. >> reporter: as for trump's widely-condemned proposal to ban muslims from coming to america, 58% of the country opposes it. but according to our latest poll, more than 50% of republicans support the idea. >> i am not convinced that a platform of division and attacks will allow us to win. >> reporter: now even trump's
7:11 am
gop rivals are wavering on whether they would support him. >> i don't think that's going to happen because he's really not a republican. >> i don't believe donald can win the nomination. >> reporter: the first of the nation's primaries occurs february 9th. a new poll in new hampshire this morning shows terrorism firmly in the lead with 27%. in second place, for the first time, new jersey governor chris christie with 12%. christie has doubled his support in new hampshire in less than a month. gayle? >> major, thank you. this morning washington state is cleaning up from a damaging tornado. it touched down thursday in the city of battleground. crews worked through the night to clear the debris. the twister is the latest example of severe weather to hit the pacific northwest this week. david begnaud is in battleground, where dozens of homes are now damaged. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it was an ef-1 tornado that

7:14 am
are, be glad. >> see the smile on my face? yes, i'm very glad, thank you, david, but feeling for the people there, certainly. lonnie quinn from wcbs is tracking the forecast. >> good morning, gayle. the pictures you showed from the pacific northwest are only going to get more intense. a low pressure system is pushing in the moisture. that's the source of the pictures you just showed us. but watch how everything sort of blows up over the weekend. another big slug of moisture comes in. that climbs into the mountains where the cold air is. and it snows and snows and snows, 2, 3 feet of snow for those pacific northwest ski areas. this is typically when you have an el niño pattern set up with colder air out west, the bigger snowstorms. the valley areas, you'll get a lot of rain. but on the eastern half of the country, flip that around, it's the exact opposite, a lot of mild air in place. in fact, some places, by the time you hit sunday on the east coast, you'll see temperatures 20 degrees warmer if not warmer
7:15 am
than that. a lot of records will fall. buffalo, new york, the record in red, 62. forecasting 65 degrees, unheard of, never happened before. look at new york city, hitting 65 as well, breaking the record of 64. all around the area, not every single town pictured here has a record, but a lot of them do. cleveland, record 65, hitting 68 on sunday. a big change i don't see happening. the pacific northwest has a great ski season. new england ski areas will struggle this year. they're great with making snow. not a lot coming from up above. >> lonnie, thanks. the faa and ntsb are investigating the crash of a medical helicopter overnight that killed all four people overboard. it came down in kern county, california. it took off and crashed and

about terrorism now than they were before the september 11th attack. a poll shows that 79% of americans believe that a terror attack will be carried out in america in the next month. donald trump's plan to prevent muslims from coming into this country. trump accepted the endorsement of a police union in new hampshire. the candidate told the crowd there is no time left for political correctness. republican strategist and cbs news contributor frank luntz asked a group of 29 trump supporters about his proposal. >> no more muslims will come into the country, those in favor raise your hands. >> the president is not making us feel safer. >> trump is the only one who
8:03 am

8:05 am
reasons not only to make us safer. i read this report about how many times people on the terrorism watch list have been allowed to legally buy guns in america, it was actually 2,043 times. it doesn't make any sense, it doesn't make people safer, i think it makes a more dangerous situation. it's come to our attention and it's teem to do something about it. there was an attempt to do something about it and the nra beat that back and it's time for right thinking people to stand up and say if somebody's done something that has them on the terrorism watch list, perhaps we should temporarily delay them from buying a gun or permanently delay them from buying a gun. >> the people who committed the acts in san bernardino did not appear on any no-fly list, number one. number two, they asked what list will you use, and number three, they asked suppose this is true in connecticut, will they not
8:06 am
simply go to another state and what's really necessary is federal legislation. >> of course federal legislation is necessary. there should be no gun sales that are not subject to a background check. overwhelmingly americans agree with that. overwhelmingly members of the nra agree there should be background checks, of course that's part of this debate and i'm more than happy to move that along. when to the nra can stop the legislature from passing gun control laws. people want gun control laws passed on a universal basis. somebody should not be able to buy a gun on the internet without a back ground check, somebody should not be able to go to a gun show and buy a gun without a background check. let's make america safer. you said that 79% of americans are fearful there will be a
8:07 am
terrorism attack, but 37 people in america will die of gun deaths and 37% of those guns would not be in the hands they're with federal back ground checks. >> some say all we need to do use is common sense, if congress is not going to act, i will, and i encourage other states to do the same. if other states reach out to you and will you reach out to other states? >> we are sharing information, we are discussing this with federal authorities, i think we're going to have an agreement to make these lists available for background checks only. that's all we're asking. when we do a background check in connecticut, we should be able to deny someone the ability to purchase a gun, subject to an appeal, obviously. if they're on that list. it's just common sense, what american doesn't think that that's the right thing the to do. >> what about the concern got the people that say the list is flawed? >> you know, the argument there
8:08 am
is things aren't perfect, therefore we should do nothing. what i'm -- i want to be very clear, we deny people the right to buy a gun in connecticut, it's subject to the appeal. many of those appeals are granted because there was a mistake in the paper work or some other thing had happened. i'm not saying that we unilaterally and permanently prevent someone from being able to purchase a gun, but we eshould be able to stop it if they're on that list, if we're not going to let them on a plane, we're not going to let them buy a gun. >> what is the specific list you will be using in connecticut from the federal government. >> there is a terrorism watch list. that is a number one. and people on that list were able to purchase guns 43 times in aen the-year period in the united states. let me just remind you that 400,000 people have died by gun violence in america since 9/11.
8:09 am
3,800 americans have died worldwide as a result of terrorism. what i'm saying is let's make sure that we make our country, our state as safe as possible. when you know there's a threat, when you know there's a threat, we should be able to take action. and by the way, this is a much better -- >> i was just going to ask, will federal officials actually give you access to these lists, have they said they'll do that? >> we're having discussions and i believe that -- i'm hopeful that it will lead to us allowing us to use these lists. that's why i said i will sign an executive order as soon as that agreement is reached. there's a lot of discussion, there's a lot of support in washington for doing this. there's an understanding that this makes citizenry safer. and i think ultimately what we're also trying to do is let's have this as a national discussion out in the open, so that people really understand that there are senators and congressmen who would deny this protection to people, the very
8:10 am
same congressmen and senators who don't want to let refugees who go through up to 24-month screening process into our country, or candidates who don't want to let people of certain faiths come into our country. let's have a sane debate about the things we could do right now to ourselvmake ourselves safer. can los angeles design its way out of the drought? we'll talk to frank gea

roz tended to american royalty, from president franklin roosevelt and mamie eisenhower, to the kennedys, barbra streisand and sammy davis jr. >> she was this beautiful, vivacious woman. >> hutzpah, my mother owned that word. she would -- had the nerve to say anything to anybody. >> reporter: like the time senator joseph mccarthy in the midst of his communist witch hunt walked through her door. mrs. rosenheim directed some salty language his way, but the former senator still walked out with a pin for his mother. >> i think that really epitomized her nerve. you know, her willingness to engage people records and that spunk helped the tiny store leave an outsized imprint on american history. a friendship formed with madeline albright had world leaders taking diplomatic clues from some of rosenheim's vintage pins. >> people would say what are you

8:46 am
that? >> reporter: the rosenheims say business has continued with the obamas but they can't say much more because like any good jeweler, discretion is key. and, gayle, on that note, wouldn't it be nice if i could just walk out and discreetly forget to give back what's on my hand? >> yes, if you want to be shot. >> reporter: here, take it. >> i would not advise that, julianna, you're an honest person. thank you. coming up next, the most unforgettable moments of the week. you're watching "cbs this morning." rning." ,,,,,,
