you would never. >> but boy, we've got a lot of stuff breaking out of san bernardino. >> yeah, so much as we have every single night this week. we'll begin with the san bernardino attack investigation. "the l.a. times,"" this is interesting, isn't it, reporting that syed farook and his wife tashfeen malik were planning an even larger attack on a location with more people. >> the fbi dive team has been searching a lake near the site of last week's attack and we're learning more about the friend of farook who is still being questioned. matt gutman has details. >> reporter: divers dredging the bottom of this pond for possible evidence linked to the terrorist couple, syed farook and tashfeen malik. >> we did have a lead that indicated the subjects came into this area. >> reporter: hoping to salvage perhaps a device with digital data on it. while much of the couple's story remains murky, the portrait of a gunman's friend who authorities say bought the rifles use the in
the rampage becoming clearer. enrique marquez may have lived a double life. his family members never knew the former punk rocker converteded to islam or that he had married a woman named mariya chernykh. his wife is one of two sisters who married american men. the other sister is married to farook's brother. federal authorities saying they planned and abandoned a terror plot in 2012. >> there had been some arrests right in their area in southern california. probably by the counter-terrorism people that really caused them to rethink it. >> reporter: those arrests four men everyone riverside, california, the same town they lived in. >> was there any connection between marquez farook and these four terrorists? >> i've heard the same reports. it would be irresponsible of us to not look into any potential connections junior. >> reporter: marquez's family saying it's shocked.
>> that is enrique marquez's mother saying how distraught she is. she hasn't heard from her son. >> that's because he's still being questioned by the fbi as an undisclosed location. he is not under arrest. the fbi telling us for the first time it's possible that the terrorist couple came to this lake, maybe dumping evidence in this water after that shooting rampage but before that chase and shoot-out in which they were killed. matt gutman, abc news, san bernardino. >> thank you so much. a new worry in the fight against isis is the possibility of counterfeit passports being used to enter the u.s. authorities say as isis was sweeping through syrian cities last week, it seized passport printing machines used by major countries around the world. a homeland security of bulletin sent to law enforcement last week shows examples of suspect passports almost impossible to detect. >> if isis has been able to be acquire legitimate passports or
machines that create legitimate passports, this would represent a major security risk to the united states. several fraudulent passports have been discovered in europe. authorities say one of the paris suicide bombers used a forged passport to come into europe as a refugee. >> geneva, switzerland on high alert this morning. swiss police fanned out across the city yesterday looking for at least four men. sources tell abc news, a tip from the cia said a terror attack was planned. today's talks in geneva on syria between u.s. and russian officials will be held, but at a different location. and now to presidential politics. donald trump gets back on the campaign trail today with a rally in des moines, iowa. despite the up can roar over his plan to ban muslims from entering the u.s.,ize flying high in the polls. the newest one shows him up t 35%. ted cruz a distant second with 16%, ben carson now third with
13%. it's your voice, your vote. abc's tom llamas covering the trump campaign. >> reporter: , donald trump may be taking heat, but with republican primary voters, he's on the rise. that new national poll shows him leading his closest rival by nearly 20 points, and some of that polling done after his controversial proposed ban of muslims coming into the u.s. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu criticizing the muslim ban and trump tweeting he's now postponing his trip to israel, saying he'll go "after i become president of the u.s." >> i didn't want to put him under pressure, number one. i also did it because i'm in the midst of a very powerful campaign that's going very well. >> reporter: but trump could be taking a business hit. his proposed ban leading a developer in dubai to take down a trump billboard advertising a golf course that trump is working on. >> if i lose some businesses overseas, it doesn't have any impact on me whatsoever. what i'm doing right now, bill, is far more important than any single business that i own. >> reporter: there's a new poll
out on trump's plan to ban muslims from coming into the u.s. that poll shows that more republicans support the trump plan than oppose it. tom llamas, abc news, new york. this really is the story that keeps on giving, isn't it? the latest poll i saw had 42% of republican voters not primary voters just overall voters supporting the ban on muslims coming into america. >> "the wall street journal" says 57% of people don't greet with trump's plan to ban all muslims. >> the untold story in the poll we saw just before tom's report is that bush is on 3%. so he's gone down. he spent a lot of money recently on television add verts. this super pac behind him i was reading in "the new york times" today has spent five times as much money on him as the next super pac has spent on the next biggest candidate. and bush was at 5 or 6% before they starred spending that money and they've blown all that money and he's gone down. >> because he had a big war
chest for money and we'll have to see how it all unfolds. >> these polls come out and there are so many little stories andnairetives. >> it's hard to tell by the numbers. wait till new hampshire and iowa. so much changes once you get down there. investigators in suburban boston are focusing on operator error as the cause of a runaway commuter train on thursday morning. the six-car train with about 50 passengers on board left a transit station without a driver and went through four stations without stopping. that driver actually stepped off the train to investigate a signal issue. he's now on administrative leave. >> a fascinating story. let's turn to sports. the nfl's week 14 has started with a second -- got the wrong camera, still learning with a second team clinching a playoff berth. and that's a good start for another episode of "sports with reena." >> i like how you call it an episode.
it's very good. you know i'm an expert at sports. >> i get the joke. >> it's not a joke. last night, it was the vikings visiting the cardinals. arizona up by seven when minnesota's mike wallace capped a long drive with a game-tying touchdown. the cardinals got the ball back and got into field goal range. this is field goal range here. the game-winner going through from 47 yards out. that's big deal. 47 yards out. arizona wins it, 23-20 and guarantees itself a trip to the postseason. what do you think about that? >> is that the whole episode? it's over? is sports with reena finished? >> yeah. >> yeah. >> thankfully. >> thankfully. >> thankfully. >> coming up. >> thanks. >> so "the mix," stunts on a bicycle that you have to see as a daredevil jumps rooftop to rooftop. >> it's great. singing the praises of frank senate tra and a major milestone
