7:02 am

7:03 am
in 2012. and by late 2013 farook and mall malik were exchanging their visions online. >> talking about jihad and martyrdo they were engaged and married. >> reporter: investigators checking whether they were a match made specifically for terror. >> at least in this one instance the jihadi websites and chat rooms prove to be a match making service. the fbi will now be looking to see if this pattern occurred elsewhere. >> reporter: and also looking to see whether malik was brought into the country on that fiancee visa to set up the sleeper cell striking mayhem when it activated. of course questions swirling about how tashfeen malik managed to get into the u.s. on that fiancee visa. if she had been fantasizing online about terrorism and jihad for at least a couple of years, authorities also investigating whether or not other terrorist matchmakers managed to infiltrate their people into the country using that visa, as

7:05 am
>> reporter: near portland one woman drowned when they are car got stuck in this creek. and a tree fell on this house killing a 60-year-old woman while she was sleeping. outside seattle, the family inside this home barely escaped an entire hillside crashed through their waterfront home. you can see where the hillside came down it absolutely shredded the underside of this house here. there's a car, it took trees down with it. much of this house was actually pushed out and into the water. the truck went through the house. >> the truck went through the house. all of the brick wall got swept away. >> reporter: floodwaters have mostly swamped rural areas. a so-called pineapple express of warm tropical moisture that blew in like a fire hose. the governor says the state of emergency out here actually covers storms that started ten days ago. it has been a really rainy month out here robin. leaving a real mess. >> it's not over neal. thank you. another storm taking aim at the pacific northwest, isn't that right, ginger. >> that's it. it's been a series of storms.
7:06 am
very latest is hitting now. see that low pressure system circulating here on the satellite radar put together as it slams the pacific northwest today through tonight, here are some of the things you'll see. the flood watches that stay intact from northern california through coastal washington state, the winter storm warnings and advisories that go for montana back to the sierra. one to two feet of snow and wind advisories this is why. gusts up to 30 40 miles per hour in some of the cities gusts higher in some of the mountain areas and look at vegas by tonight, 50-mile-per-hour wind gusts. wait till you see how big the waves will get. more than 30 feet in some places. >> wow. okay thanks very much. we move on to donald trump. the attacks on the republican front-runner not letting up boxing legend muhammad ali among the latest to weigh in on his plan to ban muslims from entering the country and his business interests taking a hit too but poll numbers strong, some of his highest out in a brand-new poll and not backing
7:07 am
down at all. tom llamas is tracking the story. >> reporter: good morning. it's more than muhammad ali. now the navy s.e.a.l. commander who oversaw the bin laden raid talking about the dangers of his plan as reports show some muslims abroad no longer want to do business with trump. overnight, donald trump separating himself even further from muslims world wide saying he doesn't need the help of arab nations to go after terrorists overseas. >> now, would you cede that you need arab-muslim nations to help the united states defeat the jihad? would you cede that? >> no i don't but i do think it would be very helpful. >> reporter: this as trump claims his proposed ban on muslims coming to the u.s. isn't about religion at all. >> this is about security. it's not about religion. this is about security. we cannot allow people to come into this country that have horrible things on their mind. >> reporter: while hillary
7:08 am
clinton telling voters trump's plan is actually hurting the war on terror. >> donald trump is supplying them with new propaganda. he is playing right into their hands. >> reporter: and boxing great muhammad ali who is muslim releasing this statement. "i believe that our political leaders should use their position to bring understanding about the religion of islam and clarify that these misguided murderers have perverted people's views on what islam really is" also weighing in one of the world's greatest terrorist hunters, retired navy admiral william mccraven. he oversaw the navy s.e.a.l. operation that killed osama bin laden. here's his take on trump's ban on muslims. >> when we get to that point then isis has won so we can't go down that path. we cannot restrict muslims from coming into the united states. >> reporter: so the big question how is all of this affecting trump? a new poll out of south carolina. guess what it shows, donald trump up 0 points. his biggest lead ever in south
7:09 am
carolina. dr. carson senator cruz and senator rubio tied for second essentially. this is trump's biggest lead in south carolina since he started running and, second this was conducted before and after his call to ban muslims from coming into the u.s. george. >> okay tom, let's talk to senator marco rubio right now, also running for president on the republican side. welcome back. you called mr. trump's proposal outlandish offensive and unconstitutional. so why would you still support him if he's the nominee? >> well first of all he's not going to be the nominee. i'm pretty confident of that so let's continue moving forward on this campaign where i think we'll nominate someone who has a chance to win in the general election. that's what i'm going to focus on. >> let me interrupt you. you say he's not going to be the nominee but at 35% not only in that poll but new "the new york times"/cbs poll has him at 35%. you're only at 9%. >> i know george but you've been following politics for a long time and most of the people that are leading in december very rarely win in january and
7:10 am
february and march when these votes start to count so i'm not going to hyperventilate aboutle pos and not do what the media has fallen into we had a paige terrorist attack on u.s. soil a week ago yesterday and all the talk you charging the newscasts are dominated by this plan that's never going to happen. this will never become the law of the country, what donald trump is proposing. let's focus on the things we can do something about, which is how these people in san bernardino carried out this attack and the others who are out there perhaps even within the homeland even as i speak that are attempting to carry out similar atacks so we need to refocus back on the important issue of terrorism, particularly as it applies to attacks here in the homeland because this is a growing threat and we're not spending nearly enough time focused on that. >> on that issue secretary clinton is making the argument the whole gop field is cut from the same cloth. watch this. >> they are all driving the exact narrative that jihadists want to advance. that we are at war, not with
7:11 am
barbarists violent murderers, but with an entire religion. this is a grave mistake. >> your response? >> my response is that there isn't a place on earth where america is stronger or safer after hillary clinton was secretary of state or barack obama has been president. ask me. ask them. what part of the world today is safer or more stable and america stronger after seven years of clinton and obama in charge of our foreign policy? so she really has no credibility to talk about these issues. the truth is that there are elements within islam that are radicalized and that believe that it is their obligation and duty to kill or enslave anyone who does not agree with their interpretation of their faith. we node to confront it for what it is an ideological movement that attempts to enslave and kill people that do not agree with them. the sooner we realize that the better our strategy to confront them is going to be. he cannot be contained. they must be defeated.
7:12 am
>> senator ted cruz is coming on strong and new polls put him ahead in iowa and says we need to carpet bomb isis. says i don't know if sand can flow in the dark but we're going to find out. would that be part of your strategy as well? >> well, we're going to increase air strikes but you cannot defeat isis estimately from air strikes. there is to the a single military official active or inactive that says we can defeat them simply from the air. it must be a coalition of which the bulk is made up of sunni arab the kurs are doing a great job in the kurdish areas. we should empower christians to defend themselves in their areas and their families but the bulk of that ground force needs to be arab sunnis that reject ideologically and defeat militarily isis and they will need our help. we will have to increase the number of special operators to call in the air strikes and need for logistical and intelligence support and we'll need more support from egypt, the saudi arabia jordan and the uae, other kingdoms immediately impacted by isis' presence in
7:13 am
the region but they must be defeated on the ground. we will not be able to defete them from the air simply. >> thanks for your time. >> thanks. now to chicago. hundreds of protesters taking to the streets last night demanding that the mayor and president obama's former chief of staff rahm emanuel resign. the latest fallout from the teenager who was shot to death by a police officer. abc's alex perez has the story. >> reporter: this morning, chicago mayor rahm emanuel apology -- >> i'm sorry. >> reporter: -- falling on deaf ear hundreds of protesters demanding he resign. >> who got to go? >> all: rahm emanuel. >> reporter: overnight frustrated demonstrators taking to the streets. >> we are calling for the resignation of mayor rahm emanuel. >> reporter: emanuel under scrutiny for weeks after the release of this dash cam video showing an officer shooting 17-year-old laquan mcdonald who later died. video city attorneys fought to keep under wraps. >> i own it.
7:14 am
i take responsibility for what happened because it happened on my watch. >> reporter: since the dash cam in the case at least two other videos of police misconduct have been made public. the normally combative mayor choking back emotion as he described a question a young man who has had run-ins with the law asked him. >> do you think the police would ever treat you the way they treat me? and the answer is no, and that is wrong. and that has to change in this city. >> reporter: but the emotion for some not enough. >> the political theater surrounded around today is so disingenuous. >> reporter: protesters vowing to keep the pressure on and emanuel insists he will not resign and says his newly created task force will have concrete solutions for the police department here by the end of march. robin. >> all right, alex thanks. amy with the other top
