7:01 am
we begin this morning with a look at today's "eye opener." your world in 90 seconds. 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

7:03 am
>> that would be a great super bowl halftime show, you know? announcer: this portion of "cbs 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
7:04 am
last night in santa monica to talk about that trip. >> it's an interesting trip here. sean penn wanted to clarify his 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.
7:05 am
government, they were clearly very humiliated by the notion that someone found him before they did. 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
7:06 am
begin a conversation about the policy of the war on drugs. that was my simple idea. >> 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
7:07 am
>> reporter: you have said to the a.p. -- and i'm asking 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
7:08 am
1%? >> reporter: you're saying there is not much dialogue about -- let me be clear. my article has failed. >> charlie, is sean penn still 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.
7:09 am
he was smitten with her and sean contacted her and believed that contact enabled him to go. 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
7:10 am
breaking news from hawaii, where a search is going right now for 12 missing military personnel. 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.
7:11 am
the mutual noncompetitive pact is officially over. 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."
7:12 am
cruz's definition of trump's so-called new york values. >> 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. >> that drew a sharp review from 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
7:13 am
help you in iowa. 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
7:14 am
>> i think they both emerged kind of what they wanted. ted cruz had back and forth and 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
7:15 am
it, which is very donald trump. for his supporters that is what they like about him. 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.
7:16 am
from the trump playbook. >> john dickerson. thank you. bernie sanders will be among his guests on sunday on "face the nation." there are still questions who won the record breaking ing ing powerball jackpot. winning tickets were bought in california, tennessee, and florida. they will split $1.6 billion. david begnaud is inside the grocery store in tiny mumford, tennessee, where one of the three lucky tickets were sold. >> reporter: good morning. welcome here to the only grocery store in this tiny tennessee town and this is where that ticket was sold, right here at this computer. everyone in town seems to know everyone and everyone claims to not know who won the ticket or at least they don't want to admit it. in munford, tennessee, mum is the word. do you think you know who the winner is? >> i have a hunch.
7:17 am
ticket. lottery officials walked in with the billion dollar news yesterday and a $25,000 bonus for her store. wyatt earp's steak house. it is. >> reporter: the slogan of the city is my kind of town. yzed with powerball fever. >> i know who did not win and that was me. >> reporter: when the lights you. >> reporter: he says everyone called. >> someone started this rumor and, you know, i don't know where to go to get it stopped. >> reporter: tennessee lottery official say multiple people have called within the last 48 hours claiming to represent a jackpot winner, which brings us back to bomar.
7:18 am
you admit it? >> no. i wouldn't be with you today. >> so it might be you? >> no, it's not me. i promise you, it's not me. >> he may be telling the truth. we have just learned that john and lisa robinson who apparently live less than a mile from the store are the tennessee couple from right here in munford claiming to have the winning ticket. the owner of the store is trying to pull the surveillance video that might show them walking up to the counter and purchasing that ticket. >> well, it won't be hard to prove. thank you very much, david. can't wait to see if they are the true couple. thanks a lot. in california, a woman reportedly received a call at work from her son on wednesday saying that she had won the massive powerball jackpot. he then even sent a picture of what he said was a winning ticket. the news set off a celebration at the nursing home. only when the mother of seven returned from work did she learn that the whole story was a

boy, would i have something to say to my son! where did you learn to be so mean? terrible thing to do. >> wow. terrible. >> terrible. secretary of defense ash carter says ten u.s. navy sailors detained by iran, obviously, had misnavigated. iran held the sailors for less than 24 hours after they strayed into iranian waters on tuesday. iranian state tv showed video of the sailors kneeling. carter says in an interview the u.s. would not have done that in similar circumstances. a chinese company this morning is in a multibillion dollar deal to buy an american plins maker. china haier will pay $5.5 for general electrics brand. ge century old appliance business is second to only whirlpool in the u.s. ge is shifting its company to

are with us. good morning, heartthrobs. 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.
7:36 am
lot of these pieces that weren't in the movie more sinister than they really were. it's nonsense that -- to say 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. 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.

7:38 am
covers that pretty well. you know, there is one whole episode deals with the evidence 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. 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.

8:03 am
the gate. controversy? >> not without controversy. 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
8:04 am
do and, on that, he is right. >> charlie, thank you. 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 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
8:05 am
>> every person here is better than hillary clinton. >> like everybody on this stage, no one is a socialist or under fbi investigation so we are a good group of people. >> she will raise social security taxes. bernie sanders has already said it and she is one or two more poll drops down moving further left than she has already to get to the left of bernie on there. >> we will win every state if bernie sanders is the nominee. that is not even an issue. >> reporter: democratic presidential candidate bernie sanders is with us from his hometown in burlington, vermont. good morning. >> good morning. >> you heard your record attacked the republicans saying they will win every state if you're the nominee. how do you defend yourself? >> i think, number one, if you look at the polls around there, we beat donald trump in the last national poll by 13 percentage points. i think we beat all of the republicans in matchups in new hampshire and iowa. i think the american people, in
8:06 am
of massive income and wealth and inequality and the rich is getting richer and everybody is getting poorer, we need candidates not only give hundreds of balances of dollars in tax breaks to the top two-tenths of % and candidates will stand up for working intend to do. >> and before you get that chance to take on a republican, though, you have to beat hillary clinton in the primaries. >> yeah, i heard about that! >> you released this ad yesterday that the clinton campaign is saying negative, let's play a clip of it. >> there are two democratic visions for regulating wall street. one says it's okay to take millions from big banks and then tell them what to do. my plan, break up the big banks, close the tax loopholes and make them pay their fair share. >> you had promised not to run a negative ad during this campaign. have you broken your promise? >> no. i think anybody who looks at that ad understands it's not a negative ad. it's absolutely truthful.
8:07 am
negative against her and it attacks president obama too. >> well, i know that that is what hillary clinton says, but 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.
8:08 am
new york times" shows you are nearly 30 percentage points ahead of hillary clinton among voters under the age of 45. but, you know, history shows, 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
8:09 am
our job is to create a large voter turnout. i think we can do that if we do that, we win. >> 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.
8:10 am
>> is it going to raise taxes? >> right now, we have medicare a popular and successful program for seniors paid through by a medicare premium and what people pay. we would have a medicare premium for all people and zero private health insurance. private health insurance premiums. the average middle class family would with see a reduction in their health care costs by many thousands of dollars. >> for the middle class would have to increase taxes on them in order to pay for this plan? >> but they are not going to be paying any private health insurance premiums. they will be paying medicare premiums, just as seniors do today. >> good news is, senator sanders, you still have more time to make your point. this campaign continues, for sure. thank you for taking the time for us this morning. we certainly appreciate that. >> thank you. >> you're welcome. he missed a field goal that could have kept the vikings postseason alive.
