mycroft isot a murder. ut out a new finest message for mycroft holmes. (sighs heavily) r tell me you did not murder that man. z i did not murder that man. but i had a hand. explain. v i had a chat with him yesterday. r he made it very clear that if you managed to undo him, x there would be consequences. he threatened us. he said there was a letter. v that in the event of his death or arrest, it would be sent pto certain parties
he planned to burn me. british intelligence. phe also made it very clear that you two in the crossfire. vwe can take care of ourselves, you know that. tyou don't know these men, sherlock. not like i do. sherrington, who did? p bit of luck, you introducing me to your friends at the nsa the other week. agent mcnally? pi told you-- i was a clearinghouse for mi6. pi stored facts; facts which r were as valuable to the national security agency as they were to mi6. pafter my talk with sherrington, i went to them. i made a deal. pwait a second-- are you saying that they killed him? r more like played him at his own game. r they had their own contacts at le milieu, which i suspected all along. they made certain parties p in that organization aware of mi6's infiltration.
made an example of sherrington. p you're not making any sense. if they know about him, p then they know about you. they'll come after you, just like he wanted them to. well, as it turns out, joan, i'm already dead. what're you talking about? t he means the nsa has agreed to fake his demise. pthere was an accident t at diogenes, a little while ago. a fire broke out in the kitchen. when the smoke clears, the body of a man will be found. a man about my size. a man in possession of my personal effects. r the blaze, of course, will disguise the fact that he's a cadaver. t but if you're supposed to be dead... x he can't stay in new york. v nor can he go to london. or rome. r or anywhere else he's
he needs to disappear. probably forever. i'm so sorry, joan. r sherlock and i were working on this, you... you knew that. i did what i had to do. lazy. stupid. sherlock... watson's right. r we could fix this. but that would require hard work... effort. v i can't believe i came to you last night, asking your forgiveness. v you are the same self-absorbed sloth...
mr. holmes. p i was wondering if we might talk for a moment. r i was sorry to hear about your brother. i assume by now you've been rapprised of the arrest of julian afkhami. r he was conspiring with sherrington, not mycroft. that mr. sherrington was subsequently murdered. good riddance to bad rubbish. i only wish he'd been slotted before he got to your brother. several days ago, rmr. sherrington made me an offer of employment. he thought i could be of great assistance to mi6. i'm just curious-- of a criminal to keep his enemy close, or was he acting on orders? it's hard to know now
>> today on "matter of fact." tensions over terror threats at home and abroad. >> here we are now where the world is falling apart. >> will the president' s strategy on guantanamo leave the nation more vulnerable? plus, is the gop establishment ready to embrace trump? >> going into super tuesday, he has the upper hand. >> and, a visit to birmingham. rooted in civil rights, how this blue city is battling for a voice in a red state. fernando: i' m fernando espuelas. welcome to "matter of fact." every action by president barack
for the republican opposition. in an effort to keep a campaign promise, he announced a plan to close the guantanamo bay detention facility. president obama: this is about closing a chapter in our history. fernando: then, he agreed to a temporary truce with his russian counterpart, vladimir putin, to halt all hostilities in syria. >> it could save lives. fernando: the republican leadership in congress and gop presidential candidates were quick to reject the president' s initiatives. senior senator lindsey graham, who until recently was a presidential candidate himself, is a member of the armed services and judiciary committees. he joins me from capitol hill. senator graham, thank you for joining me. sen. graham: thank you. fernando: sir, the president has announced a new plan to close guantanamo. what' s your reaction? sen. graham: it' s not a plan, it doesn' t designate where they would go, what legal status they would have.
fernando: and sir, do you have an alternative plan? what' s the vision of your party for guantanamo? sen. graham: keep it open and use it. we are at war. we haven' t had a place to put high-value detainees in seven years. the appetite to close it has passed. six years ago, i presented a proposal to the president to close the facility, move the prisoners back into a facility in illinois run by dod, understanding that they would be law-aboard detainees. he never reacted to my proposal, so here we are now where the world is falling apart, 30 percent recidivism rate. there' s no appetite by the congress, republican or democrat, to shut down gitmo. there' s a growing appetite to use it. that' s my position. fernando: and moving to the sort of the bigger problem in the middle east, isis and syria --
the hostilities. do you think this a good approach? a first good step? sen. graham: well, i hope we can have a cease fire, but we basically lost syria to the russians and the iranians. secretary kerry was at a hearing this week with me, asking if it was true that the russian president has ordered the bombing of the people we' ve trained in syria to replace assad. and he said, that yes, the russians and the iranians are all in for assad. we' ve abandoned the free syrian army. there is no way to get a peace negotiation now that doesn' t allow russia, iran and assad to dominate the negotiations. and it is really sad. but i don' t think the cease fire will hold because isil and al-nusra, the terrorist groups that we are all threatened by, are still alive and well. fernando: is it too late, you think, for an american no-fly zone? sen. graham: john kerry took that off the table.
not to create one five years ago. we' ve screwed up syria every way you can screw it up. 4.6 million refugees have syria -- left syria to other countries. lebanon and jordan are tremendously comprised. obama has allowed russia and iran to walk all over in syria. fernando: so, looking forward obviously in an election year, it seems mr. trump right now leads the fight for nomination of your party. how do you stop him? sen. graham: i don' t think you will stop trump unless something changes. the only way you can console -- is to consolidate the field where rubio, kasich and rubio -- cruz worked together. t do that, then he will be the nominee. and his foreign policy is worse than obama' s, believe it not. he he doesn' policy. within 30 days, he said it' s not our fight, let isil fight it out with assad. and when that wasn' t working because of paris, he said let the russians deal with isil. well, the russians are not going
homeland. and now he has a bombing campaign with an expletive i can' t use on tv, so donald trump has no idea of this war and how to win it. the last thing you want to do is alienate every muslim in the world, because we are going to need them as allies. so i' ve never been so depressed that i am right now, because there are so many threats. and -- so many threats. and our choices are going to come down to hillary clinton -- who will be more of the same of obama -- and donald trump who doesn' t have a clue. other than that, things are great. [laughter] fernando: and, senator, today the "washington post" published a poll that said 8 out of 10 hispanics have a negative views of donald trump. you' ve been at the forefront of trying to bring them into the republican party. do you think this deals a very heavy blow on the future of the republican party should he be the nominee? sen. graham: a death blow. who are the 20 percent of hispanics that like donald trump? they' re obviously not listening to what he is saying. it' s the fastest growing
re wonderful people -- hardworking, pro-life, mostly catholic, very entrepreneurial, join the military higher than any percentages, higher than any other minority group in america. they should be republicans, but when they listen to mr. trump, how can they come to our cause? he said most illegal immigrants they' he says he' s going to deport 11 million immigrants, including their u.s.-born children, which he can' t. but if i were hispanic, i would find that offensive. fernando, here' i' m not going to vote for a party that would deport my grandmother, who is a good, decent hardworking woman, no might be. fernando: senator graham, thank today. sen. graham: thank you. fernando: senator graham and fellow republicans on the judiciary committee have also agreed not hold hearings on a
court. >> coming up, the congressional standoff with the white house. >> the senate will withhold it. >> is the republican establishment losing its base? >> this could end up benefiting donald trump. >> we' ve gotten poorer. >> a democratic city in a republican state. the black and white realities of the partisan divide. then, nearly a million twitter followers await his return. >> i feel like i' ve lived my

the nominee will need 2,383 to win the nomination. on the republican side, ben carson, ted cruz, john kasich, marco rubio and donald trump are fighting for 595 delegates. the nominee will need 1,237 clinch the top spot. is it possible that clinton and trump emerge as their party nominees by next weekend? amber phillips is a political reporter at the "washington post." thank you for joining me today. amber: happy to be here. fernando: thank you. so, can anyone stop trump? amber: i don' t know. right now it doesn' t look like it. donald trump has just dominated nevada, south carolina, new hampshire, and you know in the recent contest in nevada, he won nearly every single demographic that came out, possibly even -- although polls are shaky on this -- latinos. so going into super tuesday, he has the upper hand. i think the best chance that
him on super tuesday is possibly ted cruz, if he can win texas, his own home state. and that fact that we are even talking about that may not even be a possibility for ted cruz says something about donald trump' s dominance. fernando: and what about marco rubio? he' s positioned himself as everyone' s second choice, but that doesn' t make him any body' s first choice, it seems, at least it' s not shown in the voting. what' s his strategy? how does he potentially compete? amber: well, his strategy, originally, was to get third in iowa where he wasn' t expected to do well among social conservatives, climb the ranks to do second in new hampshire, first in south carolina. that hasn' t happened for marco rubio. he has not won a single state thus far and so i think his strategy is totally thrown out the window. quite frankly, the best chance he has right now is for everyone to drop out, especially some of the more establishment candidates still in the race like ohio governor john kasich. fernando: but what about trump' s response that, which is
thescandidates dpping out would suddenly throw their support to one candidate and not him, that he will in fact attract these voters. does that make sense? is there enough support for trump among those voters? amber: trump has a very strong case to make that that' s what' s going to happen. when people drop out, perhaps voters will go to him. and i say this because, ted cruz originally was, even when donald trump was still topping the polls nationally, seen as kind of the evangelical, social conservative candidate. well, we' ve seen donald trump pick up those voters. marco rubio is arguably the more establishment candidate. in nevada, we saw donald trump win among moderate republicans. i think donald trump has a very strong case to make that more and more people will choose him as other people drop out of the race. fernando: what do you think will be the impact of the supreme
