7:01 am
i thought this is somebody upon whose interview could i begin a conversation about the policy of the war on drugs? >> sean penn speaks about his controversial el chapo interview. >> do you believe that the mexican government released this, in part, because they wanted to see you blamed and to put you at risk? >> yes. >> unlike another woman in this race, i actually love spend time with my husband. >> one of the most gop presidential debates, lots of verbal attacks. >> if you become the nominee, who the hell knows if you can even serve in office. >> i will not be taking legal advice from donald trump. >> i hate to interrupt this. isis strikes gentleman car ka -- jakarta that left seven dead. >> no one has claimed their share of almost $1.6 billion.

7:03 am
this morning" sponsored by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." anthony mason is joining us. nice to have you here. >> the reason you're here is because charlie rose is in california where he interviewed sean penn. the actor is breaking his silence about his secret trip to mexico to meet the notorious drug lord joaquin guzman. mexico recaptured him one week ago. >> sean penn made headlines the next day when "rolling stone" published his account of visiting the kingpin in hiding last october. in an interview for "60 minutes," charlie met with penn last night in santa monica to talk about that trip. >> it's an interesting trip here.
7:04 am
involvement in el chapo's recapture. mexican authorities have said knowledge of the trip helped them move in on the drug lord. penn believes those claims of his contribution are incorrect and could put him in danger. >> there is this myth about the visit that we made, my colleagues and i, with el chapo, that it was, as the attorney of mexico has quoted, is essential to his capture. we had met with him many weeks earlier. >> reporter: on october 2nd? >> on october 2nd in a place nowhere near where he was captured. >> reporter: as far as you know you had nothing to do and your visit had nothing to do with his recapture? >> the things -- here is the things that we know. we know that the mexican government, they were clearly very humiliated by the notion that someone found him before
7:05 am
well, nobody found him before they did. we are not smarter than the dea or the mexican intelligence. we had a contact, upon which we were able to facilitate an invitation. >> reporter: do you believe that the mexican government released this, in part, because they wanted to see you blamed and to put you at risk? >> yes. >> reporter: they wanted to encourage the cartel to put you in their crosshairs? >> yes. >> reporter: are you ferl arful for your life? >> no. >> reporter: i first wanted to know why you wanted to do this and why you wanted to go there. second, about the risk you felt you might be taking and why that risk was worth it. >> i had only -- only that i thought this is somebody who upon whose interview could i begin a conversation about the policy of the war on drugs.
7:06 am
>> reporter: you wanted to have a conversation about the policy of the car war on drugs? >> that's right. we are going to put all of our focus. forget about blame. we are going to put all our focus, all our energy and all of our billions of dollars on the bad guy. and what happens? you get another death the next day, the same way. >> reporter: do you make a moral e equivalent between el chapo and people who buy drugs in america? >> i do if it's me. i can't make that judgment for everyone else. i wouldn't go so far to buy or sell drugs. >> reporter: at least -- >> i say i can't make him worse than me if i'm not out there doing everything that i can to get a conversation going on the way in which we prosecute that war. >> reporter: you have said to
7:07 am
now -- you have no regrets? >> i have a terrible regret. >> reporter: are the regrets? >> i have a regret that the entire discussion about this article ignores its purpose, which was to try to contribute to this discussion about the policy in the war on drugs. let's go -- let's go to the big picture of what -- what we all want. stop. we all want the killings in chicago to stop. we are the consumer. whether with -- whether you agree with sean penn or not, there is a complicit there and if you are in the moral right or on the far left, just as many of your children are doing these drugs, just as many. and how much time have they spent the last week since this article come out talking about 1%? >> reporter: you're saying there is not much dialogue about --
7:08 am
let me be clear. my article has failed. >> charlie, is sean penn still in contact with anybody in el chapo's champ. >> no. >> and does he think they will >> no. he said he would have wanted to have met with him again and that was his plan. but, no, he has not heard from anyone in the cartel or surrounding el chapo who is now been recaptured, back in the same prison that he escaped from a year ago, or six months ago. so that point about him and what he hoped to have accomplish is just one small part of a long conversation about how he negotiated with el chapo. what the deal was this deal and this trip was led by the actress kate del castillo. she had had some contact with her. he was smitten with her and sean contacted her and believed that
7:09 am
we know now from some things released by the mexican authorities that there was a very interesting dynamic between the two of them that enabled him to go. so watch "60 minutes" and you'll see more after very interesting conversation about the deals he made, why he went, and what he thought of el chapo. >> all right. in addition to "60 minutes," how about watching you in our next hour? you're coming back. >> well, and one more thing. he'll be in full, the conversation will be seen on my pbs show on monday night. >> all right. again, charlie will be here in our next hour. you can't leave us yet, charlie. critics of the decision to -- very interesting to hear anything sean has to say about this. the decision for el chapo to preapprove the "rolling stone" article and you can see charlie's full interview on "60 minutes" this sunday on cbs. breaking news from hawaii, where a search is going right
7:10 am
they were aboard two helicopters that may have collided off the north shore of oahu. coast guard officials say debris in the water two and a half miles from haleiwa. researchers fountain an empty life raft in the water. ted cruz accused domed trump nald trump focused on money and the media and that led to this attack by the new york "daily news" with the deadline, "drop dead, ted." they say it could disqualify him from the race. major garrett has the story. >> reporter: good morning. the mutual noncompetitive pact
7:11 am
the two clashed other birtherism and new york values. others on stage struggled for attention and cling to the dim hope this noisy trump and cruz feud would bring them an alternative. >> there is a big question mark on your head. >> reporter: birtherism. prime time republican style. >> there are other attorneys who feel, and very, very fine constitutional attorneys, that feel that because he was not born on the land, he cannot run for president. >> well, listen. i've spent my entire life defending the constitution before the u.s. scattered storm and till he will you i'm not taking legal advice from donald trump. >> i hate to interrupt this episode of "courttv." >> the two squared off over cruz's definition of trump's
7:12 am
>> the values in new york city are socially liberal, pro abortion or pro gay marriage focus around the money and the media. >> when with the world trade center came down, i saw something that no place on earth could have handled more beautifully and i have to tell you, that was a very insulting statement that ted made. >> reporter: trump also defended his call to ban all muslims from entering the u.s. >> i said temporarily. i didn't say permanently. jeb bush. >> all muslims? seriously? what kind of signal is that sending to the rest of the world. >> reporter: marco rubio clashed with chris christie. >> unfortunately, governor christie has endorsed many of the ideas that abram supports. >> two years ago, he called me a conservative reformer that new jersey needed. >> reporter: and with cruz. >> i saw you on the senate floor flip your vote on crop insurance because they told you it would
7:13 am
that is not consistent schism. >> reporter: after that, trump acknowledged nothing is guaranteed on february 1st. >> when people wait in line five hours to go to a rally, i would imagine they show up to caucus in the case of iowa. >> reporter: back to new york values for a moment. from a fund-raising perspective, there is evidence that cruz values new york quite a bit. while it's true cruz has raised most of his money from inside of texas, he has accepted more than $276,000 from contributors who call the big apple home. >> major, thank you so much. let's bring in "face the nation" moderator and cbs news political director john dickerson. good morning. there it was. the trump/cruz slug fest. who with emerged with few of the bruises? >> it's such a shame when friendships go bad. >> yeah. >> i think they both emerged kind of what they wanted.
7:14 am
looked tough. a candidate without much executive experience and when people are in debates they look at the candidates and say can they handle the oval office? he stood-to-to toe with donald trump and had a few good moments. donald trump, on the other hand, who is ahead in the polls almost everywhere, even a little bit in iowa in a recent one, had good moments himself. remember, debates were supposed to be his great time of peril, so every one he gets through is an opportunity he has missed an opportunity for something to go wrong. his 9/11 answer was something a lot of people were talking about. >> for the first time i saw donald trump get booed at the debate last night when he brought up the birther issue and even in boo'ing he turned around and said they are booing about that, they are booing about the polls. what did you think of that moment? >> he has been booed once before and he just plows right through it, which is very donald trump. for his supporters that is what
7:15 am
he was quick on his feet in a number of different exchanges. again, sort of a theater review but sometimes these debates are theater reviews. there was a lot for trump supporters to like in his performance last night and i think even in the booing moment they probably found something they liked there too. >> did cruz take a risk with his comment about trump's new york values? >> i don't think so. but they are pitching to slightly different audiences. when ted cruz talks about new york values, he is talking to evangelicals who are voting in iowa and saying he is not one of you. and that quite effective to sow those kind of seeds of doubt and donald trump is doing in a passive aggressive way with cruz questioning whether evangelicals come out of cuba and that kind of thing. he is really just taking a page from the trump playbook. >> john dickerson. thank you.
7:16 am

the chain is trying to reassure customers. dean strang and jerry buting the defense lawyers featured in "making a murder" are in studio 57 for theirs first interview since the documentary premiered last month. it raises questions whether their client steven avery was wrongly convicted of murder in 2000. >> making a murder the latest crime drama sweeping the company is one of netflix successful series ever. season avery spent 18 years in prison for a rape he didn't commit. dna evidence exonerated him in 2003 but two years later avery arrested again this time for the murder of photographer take resha hallback.

7:34 am
dean, you squirmed a little when you heard that word. >> every time. >> they say they left out key facts including avery's dna was found under the hood of teresa hallback's car. why do you think the movie left that out? >> the movie gives a lavish three hours plus to one trial that went over $200,000. if they are clear in the convictions they obtained, i wondered why they found it so insecure about a movie that necessarily couldn't hundred $200,000. >> in the case of teresa hallback, he called her cell phone three times on the day she was murdered. why was that left out of this series? that is important information, i would think. >> it is and it isn't. the state is trying to make a lot of these pieces that weren't in the movie more sinister than they really were.
7:35 am
that large parts of the state's case were left out. regard to this, for instance, also left out was the fact that he called and made an appointment to the office. if he had her cell phone number and he was trying to lure her, why would he call the office and create a paper trail? he would just call her directly and no one would ever know that she had come there. instead, he goes through the office. >> just to remind people, how did they know each other? >> she had been at the avery salvage yard five or six other times to take pictures of other vehicles they were selling. and in this instance, it was his sister's vehicle. and so his sister's name was left as the person on the account to whose car was being sold. but the address was avery road. >> she said i'm going to see the avery brothers. >> yes. so she knew where she was going. there was nothing sinister or unexpected about how that was arranged. >> how do you explain the dna
7:36 am
it's interesting that dna exonerated him in other case and now the dna is being used in this case to possibly incriminate him in this crime. >> first of all, the prosecutor has said that sweat dna, quote/unquote, sweat dna is found on the hood and no such perspiration. they can't tell where it comes from. >> it's transferred from something that may or may not have been from him. >> are both of you convinced of his innocence? >> i'm not convinced of his guilt. guilt. >> that is not the same thing. you're saying there is some doubt in your mind? >> sure, absolutely. and if it was okay to convict people on maybe's, i wouldn't be worried about this but it's not. >> your team say law enforcement may have planted evidence on avery. what do you think they planted and what proof do you have? >> well, i think the documentary covers that pretty well. you know, there is one whole
7:37 am
of where we thought the evidence went towards planting him. the key that wasn't found until the sixth or seventh search of this little trailer. >> in a small area. >> small area in plain view. >> yes. >> the key was, by the way, did not have her house keys or her keys to her studio or -- >> it didn't have her dna on it. >> and did not have her dna on it. the evidence of the bones are clearly than moved. part of them were found in a burn barrel over behind another residence 200 yards away and more bones in a quarry. >> how do you all see this turning out? right now he is in prison. how do you see this resolving itself or do you think this is it? >> you mean assembling a lem team legal team which is job one? i think the hope relies in null discovered evidence. >> we have seen details from all scientists all over the world. i've had a hundred e-mails from
7:38 am
at this and say the science has really improved and a lot more can be done and other types of blood tests that might be able to prove that this blood did not come from him actively bleeding in her car. >> it's got everybody watching. you got everybody watching. here. dean and jerry, thank you.

8:01 am
fair enough. at the same time, you know, when journalists who want to say that i'm not a journalist, well, i want to see the license that says that they are a journalist. >> charlie, does he consider himself a journalist? >> well, i think he thinks of himself, as he said, as an experimental journalist, someone who goes to lots of controversial places. the idea of going into the mountains to meet someone as notorious, someone who has the record, the violence and brutality of el chapo is an extraordinary risk to take on his part, and he had to have some courage to do that. the point is, obviously, he thought it was worthwhile and i think he thought that they had an agreement with el chapo, you know, that -- and because she was with him, the mexican actress, that this was an opportunity for him to do something that few people could do and, on that, he is right.
8:02 am
i'm interested in ul of all of that and that journey and his relationship with kate del castillo. >> you can see more of charlie's interview with sean penn on "60 minutes" here on cbs on sunday. the top seven republican presidential candidates exchanged a lot of tough talk at last night's heated debate. ted cruz accused donald trump of having new york values. trump hit back, questioning cruz's citizenship. marco rubio and chris christie and cruz clashed over their conservative records but all republicans agreed on one thing -- president obama and the democratic candidates are wrong for america. >> bernie sanders and hillary clinton will say, it's those evil rich people. ipts not the evil rich people. it's the evil government. >> our country is being run by incompetent people and, yes, i am angry. >> the obama/clinton economy has left behind the working men and women of this country. >> every person here is better than hillary clinton.

8:05 am
hillary clinton is not right. did you see any picture of hillary clinton in there? did you see any mention of hillary in there? look. you well know, and you guys follow this stuff, for many, many years there has been a division within the democratic party where you have had a whole section of the democratic party that is pro wall street and that gets money from wall street and that work very hard for the dere deregulation of wall street which in my view led to the horrendous crisis when people lost their jobs and homes. i have, throughout my life, stood up to wall street. i think we have got to bring back a lasting resolution for the 21st century. i believe we have to ultimately break up the major financial institutions on wall street whose greed and recklessness is harming america. that is my view. other people within the democratic party who disagree. >> a poll from cbs and the "the new york times" shows you are nearly 30 percentage points ahead of hillary clinton among voters under the age of 45.

senator sanders, the young people don't normally turn out to vote on election day. are you confident that you can carry that enthusiasm with you to the polls on election day. >> that is a very sad question and it's something that we are working very hard on. look. when we began this campaign, we were at 3% in the national polls. we are closing the gap with secretary clinton. we are doing very, very well, i think, in new hampshire and we are doing well in iowa. we are doing well in nevada. but, clearly, it is one thing, as we understand to bring out a whole lot of young people to rallies to get them excited. it's another thing to make sure that the people come out on caucus night in iowa or the new hampshire primary. what i can tell you is we are mounting an extraordinarily, a strong grassroots effort. we have a great group of volunteers, thousands of volunteers in both states. our job is to create a large voter turnout. i think we can do that if we do

>> senator, you've made a lot of promises in this campaign, including a single payer universal health care plan. but you have not said how you would pay for it. you promised to release that plan before february 1st. you've yet to do that. where is it? >> well, we have released most of that plan. that plan is based on legislation that i introduced in 2013 so it's there. it's a long and complicated bill and it's out there. what has happened in the last few years is good news. is that the course of health care inflation has declined and, in fact, let that -- our single pair medical will cost less than we originally thought. here is the bottom line. the bottom line is the u.s., today, is the only major country on earth that doesn't guarantee health care to all people. >> how will you pay for it is the question. >> is it going to raise taxes? >> is it going to raise taxes? >> right now, we have medicare a
