[ applause ] it's not a crime. i just made that point. you know? >> the sooner i can become the nominee, i can turn and unify
3:32 am
the democratic party, like i did with president obama back in 2008. >> reporter: even clinton's aides acknowledge the race will be close in the state clinton represented for eight years. >> it is extraordinary that somone with hillary clinton's political background and experience hasn't been able to quickly dispatch a 74-year-old socialist. hillary clinton can be very grateful that the republican nominee may well be either donald trump or ted cruz. >> part of the challenge for clinton is that democratic primary voters often gravitate toward the more liberal candidate. same thing in 2008. clinton is working to counter act that in new york with a new ad that highlights trump's recent abortion comments and argues she would be tougher on trump in a general election. >> for the republicans, donald trump leads ted cruz in the

voters denied a voice. trump's convention manager, paul manaford described cruz's efforts this way. >> you go to county conventions and see gestapo tactics we will file protests because reality they're not playing by the rules. >> reporter: fund-raising in las vegas this weekend, cruz predicted trump would limp into the contested convention, fame to win on the first ballot and be sent packing. >> i believe the first ballot will be the highest vote total donald trump receives. on a subsequent ballot well are going to win the nomination and earn a majority. cruz's campaign dismissed the gestapo tactic accusations a sign that trump's team hasn't figured out this is trench warfare for delegates. trump better read the rule book and find a shovel. >> unless donald trump can win big in new york and the upcoming states, there is a very real chance that the gop will pick its presidential nominee at a contested convention. here with a look at how that might play out is juliana
3:35 am
goldman. >> reporter: voters have spoken. in republican politics it its party leaders who decide the delegates that pick the nominee. every state is different which makes the process especially confusing. essentially when you boil it down. getting delegates requires full court press, ground game, political courting and when it comes to the fight donald trump found himself with one hand tied behind his back. >> donald trump right here! >> in colorado this weekend. >> ditch the zero. come in with a hero. >> gabrielle schwartz was hoping he would be picked as a national delegate for trump. ted cruz has been playing the delegate game for months. trump hasn't and put schwartz on the defensive. >> he gave up on the state didn't he? >> i am not working for the campaign. >> reporter: cruz swept colorado taking its 34 delegates.
3:36 am
>> i want to thank everyone who is here running. >> scenes will play out over the next two months. campaigns scramble to send their loyalisted to cleveland this summer. >> let me tell you who the party bosses are. >> charlie black is a republican campaign veteran, leading kasich's delegate hunting team. he work ford ronald reagan during the last contested convention in 1976. the california governor clinched the popular vote. but sitting president, gerald ford, won the majority of delegates. a process that played out on the convention floor. >> it's been ate touch and go battle. ronald reagan put up quite a fight. >> it could happen this year. here's how. once the national delegates are chosen, each campaign will let loose delegate hunters. many detectives tasked with wooing delegates. >> they're trying to find out what the motivations are of all 2,200 delegates. >> rick davis worked for
3:37 am
reagan's 1984 convention. >> it is a horse trade. if you are not in the trade you are going to get stolen. >> reporter: that time is in cleveland. most delegates are bound for the first vote. if no candidate gets the majority. most of the delegates become free agents for the second vote. or until they hit that magic 1237 number. is that when all hell breaks loose? >> yeah, i think all hell brakz that's when the work that has been done paid off. >> reporter: bring on the wheeling and dealing. >> there will be a lot of ambassadorships given out on the floor of that convention. >> does it raise any corruption questions? >> sure, you are not supposed to promise a job for a vote. >> reporter: promise can't have a monetary value. but they can be priceless. in 1976, black says delegates were offered rides on air force one. invitations to state dinners. >> suppose somebody could get invited to fly on trump air. but i don't think that's enough

3:41 am
28 pages are crucial to this? >> i think they are a key part. >> former u.s. senator bob graham has been trying to get the 28 pages released since the day they were classified back in 2003. when he played a major role in the first government investigation into 9/11. >> i remain deeply disturbed by the amount of material that has been censored from this report. >> reporter: at the time graham was chairman of the senate select committee on intelligence. >> i call the joint committee to order. >> reporter: co-chair of the joint congressional inquiry into intelligence failures surrounding the attacks. the joint inquiry reviewed half a million documents. interviewed hundreds of witnesses and pre deuced an 838 page report minus the final chapter which was blanked out,
3:42 am
excised by the bush administration for reasons of national security. >> this is your office? bob graham won't discuss the classified information in the 2 pages. he will say only that they outline a network of people that he believes supported the hijackers while they were in the u.s. you believe that support came from saudi arabia? >> substantially. >> when you say the saudis you mean the government, rich people in the country? charities? >> all of the above. >> reporter: graham and others believe the saudi role has been soft pedalled to protect a delegate relationship with a complicated kingdom where the rulers, royalty, riches -- and religion are all deeply intertwined in its institutions. >> committee will be in order. >> reporter: graham's pub co-chairman, porter goss, and later the direct or of the cia also felt strongly an uncensored version of the 2 pages should be included in the final report.

3:44 am
>> it has the to go all up here. tim roemer, former congressman and u.s. ambassador to india read the 28 pages multiple times. first as member of the joint inquiry. later as a member of the blue ribbon 9/11 commission which picked up where congress' investigation left off. how hard is it to actually read the 28 pages? >> very hard. tough documents to get your eyes on. >> roemer and others who have read the 28 pages describe them as a working draft, similar to a grand jury or police report which includes provocative evidence, some verified, some not. they lay possibility of official saudi assistance for two hijackers who settled in southern california. that information from the 28 pages was turned over to the 9/11 commission for further investigation. some of the questions raised were answered in the commission's final report. others were not.
3:45 am
is there information in the 28 pages if they were declassified would surprise people? >> sure you are going to be surprised by it. and you are going to be surprised by some of the answers that are sitting there today, in the 9/11 commission report. about what happened in san diego. and what happened in los angeles. what was the saudi involvement? >> reporter: much of that surprising information is buried in footnotes and the appendix of the 9/11 report. part of the official public record. most of it unknown to the general public. these are some but not all of the facts. in january of 2000, the first of the hijackers landed in los angeles after attending a summit in malaysia. two saudi nationals arrived with extremely limited language skills and no experience with western culture. yet through an incredible series of circumstances, they managed to get everything they needed from housing to flight lessons.
3:46 am
>> l.a. san diego. that's really, you know the hornets nest. that's really the one that i continue to think about. almost on a daily basis. >> during their first days in l.a. witnesses placed the hijackers at the mosque in the company of a diplomat at the saudi consulate known to hold extremist views. later, 9/11 investigators would find him deceptive and suspicious and in 12003, he would be denied re-entry to the united states for having suspected ties to terrorist activity. >> this is a very interesting person. in the whole 9/11 episode of, who might have helped whom in los angeles and san diego, with two terrorists who didn't know their way around. >> home records show he was in regular contact with this man. a mysterious saudi who became the hijackers biggest benefactor. he was a ghost employee with a no show job, and saudi aviation contractor outside of los
3:47 am
angeles. >> you believe he was a saudi agent? >> yes. >> what made you believe that? >> even before 9/11. listed in files. >> on the morning of february 1, 2000, he went to the office of the saudi consulate where he worked. he then proceeded to have lunch at a middle eastern restaurant on venice, boulevard. where he later claimed he happened to make the appearance of two future hijackers. >> they magically run into her in a restaurant. and she claims is a coincidence. in one of the biggest cities in the united states. >> decides to befriend them? >> not only befriend them. but help them move to san diego. get residency. >> reporter: in san diego, he fond them a place to live in his
3:48 am
apartment complex. advanced the security deposit. cosigned the lease. even threw them a party and introduced them to other muslims who would help the hijackers obtain government ids and enroll in flight schools. no evidence that neither knew what the future hijackers were up to. it is possible that they were just trying to help fellow muslims. but the very day that he welcomed the hijackers to san diego, there were four calls between his cell phone and the imam at san diego mosque. america cannot and kill not win. >> the american born. infamous a decade later. in january 2001, a year after becoming the hijackers spiritual adviser, he left san diego for falls church, virginia. months later, the five hijackers would join him there. >> those are a lot of
3:49 am
coincidences. that's a lot of smoke. its that enough to make you squirm and uncomfortable and dig harder? and declassify the 28 pages. absolutely. >> reporter: perhaps no one is more interested in reading the 28 pages than attorneys jim crimeler and sean carter who represent family members of the 911 victim thousands. its institutions provided money to al qaeda knowing it was waging war against the united states. >> what we are doing in court is, is developing the story that has to come out. but it has been difficult for us. because for many years we weren't getting the kind of openness and cooperation that, that we think our government owes to the american people particularly the families of people who are murder. you can see the full report on our website. cbsnews.com. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.
