we will look more at the video later. there is also a tad of controversy surrounding it. we will dig into that. the top story this morning, hillary clinton on the defense after the state department announced it was withholding 22 e-mails saying they contained top secret information. all of this comes two days before a razor tight race in iowa. we have full coverage from des moines this morning. we start with white house correspondent kristen welker. kristen, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, erica. people are buzzing about hillary clinton's e-mail issue this morning. not exactly the headline the clinton campaign wants to see two days before the iowa caucuses. her top rival, bernie sanders is not making an issue of it, instead, both candidates are focused on the finish line. >> you can make her the next president of the united states. >> reporter: hillary and bill clinton back together friday night trying to seal the deal
8:03 am
>> thank you, davenport. >> reporter: this comes as the state department released 1,600 e-mails from her private server as secretary of state. this time holding 22 documents as top secret. state department officials weighed in on friday. >> none of this traffic was marked classified at the time it was sent. >> reporter: the clinton campaign is calling on thetate department to make the e-mails public. >> this is an example of overclassification run amok. >> reporter: nbc's lester holt interviewed secretary clinton shortly before the news broke. >> why should the public worry about this hanging over your head? >> there was never any information sent or received marked classified to me. >> reporter: despite making an issue of the e-mails. >> the people are sick and tired
8:04 am
>> reporter: the campaign has yet to escape the controversy and this could hurt for monday's caucuses. she is running neck and neck with sanders in iowa, who friday night, focused on rallying his supporters. >> i believe it is our campaign that is generating the excitement and the interest for a large voter turnout. >> reporter: at the drake diner in des moines, voters had opinion. >> does this hillary clinton e-mail matter? >> yes. i feel it is a skeleton in the closet. >> i don't think it will have that big an effect. >> reporter: in a statement released late last night, sanders again reiterated he is not interested in the e-mail issue. he is interested in the issues that matter to voters. both candidates cross the state today. eight events between them. one, secretary clinton will be joined by gabby giffords. erica, back to you. >> kristen, thanks.
8:05 am
little time reacting to the clinton news. nbc's hallie jackson has more. >> reporter: good morning. this time the candidates are getting ready for a dozen events in the final countdown to the caucuses, the last big push. taking aim not only at eastch other, but across the aisle at hillary clinton. the favorite target on the campaign trail, facing new fire from the gop rivals. >> hillary clinton is disqualified. disqualified from being commander in chief. >> reporter: marco rubio calling the latest news about the e-mail release unacceptable. >> maybe she thinks she's above the law or maybe she wanted to read the stuff on her blackberry and have that convenient. >> hillary clinton on her e-mail server had 22 top secret e-mails. well, that actually is an
8:06 am
this is getting more and more serious. >> reporter: clinton's campaign spokesperson on defense. >> we know that these e-mails that they were not marked classified at the time they were sent or received. >> reporter: republicans quick to pounce. donald trump tweeting the e-mail release is a disaster and slamming what he calls clinton's bad judgment. saving his hardest hits for republican rival. >> ted cruz may not be a u.s. citizen, but he's an anchor baby. he i i an anchor baby. ted cruz is an anchor baby in canada. >> reporter: cruz laughing it off in iowa. >> senator, trump called you an anchor baby today. any response to that? just laughter is what you take away from it? >> i like donald and he's welcome to say whatever he likes. i like and respect him. that's all i got to say. right now, it is up to the voters to decide. >> reporter: the two iowa frontrunners.
8:07 am
>> reporter: just a weekend away from the caucuses. >> i am having a fantastic time. we have 77 hours to go. >> reporter: the final push to the finish line. cruz striking a bit of a different tone over the last 24 hours out on the campaign trail. backing off some of the unprompted attacks against donald trump. marco rubio, meanwhile, also out holding rallies today hoping for a strong third place finish here guys, hoping to pick up momentum after the debate thursday night. >> hallie jackson in iowa. thank you. >> mark halperin is with us. gentlemen, good morning. they join us from iowa. >> good morning, erica. e-mails. mark, i know you were saying yesterday on "morning joe" there is a lot of chatter among fbi agents. what are you hearing could come down the line? >> well, look, what is going on with secretary clinton is
8:08 am
staff. we know the people at the fbi and justice department are looking at it not as a criminal investigation, but question whether because of the private server, she handled everything correctly. this disclosure will heighten the sense that the fbi will have to interview members of her staff and secretary clinton. it doesn't mean she will be indicted, but from a political point of view it is she is called to t tk to the fbi, while fighting for the presidency, it will happen into concerns that kristen welker's piece that it does matter to voters. >> john, is this something we are talking about or is this something that voters in iowa or voters in new hampshire or voters in south carolina, is this something voters talking about right now? is this resonating on the campaign trail?
8:09 am
it never has over the course of the last year, we have never heard a lot of concern. a lot of concern on republican voters, but not democratic voters. this issue will not have much effect for hillary clinton to be the democratic nominee. it may spur fear on the democratic establishment that hillary clinton could be vulnerable on the general election. if she gets there, the republicans will make a lot of hay with in the fall. >> and on the ground in iowa, donald trump is defying any stereotype the way anything is done traditionally in politics. the question is can the numbers we see in the polls and terms of people at the rallies translate into votes. what is your sense? will they come out to caucus in bigger numbers, mark? >> this is the moment when
8:10 am
you suggested from the unorthodox candidate to an orthodox candidate. he needs caucus and people to come to the rallies and turn out to the caucuses. good to remind people. this is not a normal primary that people are used to. you have to vote several hours on monday night and go to a particular location at a particular time. trump's team is not inexperienced. they know caucuses are different. he has a lot of iowans who have done this in the past. we will see on monday. my sense is they know exactly how big the stakes are. if his operation does perform in iowa, he will be in a commanding position for the nomination. i believe at least in part his operation will work. this will not be a collapse. it could be a powerful force pal legal to the force he has been. >> m mk and john in the hawkeye state saturday morning. thank you. we have you covered at the
8:11 am

8:12 am
stayed at the local motel in northern california. >> we have information that mr. nayeri and mr. tieu may still be together in the san jose area. >> reporter: investigators also say the men had help with the escape from ravaghi. an english teacher at the jail. she is being held as a suspect in the jail break. they say she brought in maps, showing images of the jail's rooftop. detectives say she developed a quote, personal relationship with inmate hossein nayeri. the story reminiscent of joyce mitchell in the new york state prison escape last year. this jail break reads like a hollywood thriller. the inmates cut through steel and along plumbing ducts and repelled six stories. this morning, two inmates still on the run and said to be desperate.

if you are a very active person and exercise regularly, if you spend an extra hour at the gym, you are probably not burning anymore calories than you normally do in the day. the main difference comes in someone sedentary. people who don't exercise at all, for them, walking and taking the stairs is actually going to make a difference. the idea is biologically, we have a certain amount of energy we expend every day. it doesn't vary when your level is doing cognizant. >> does that mean i can have a glass of wine instead? >> yeah, no. don't interpret it that way. >> natalie, thank you. still ahead, a look at the highly anticipated series, "the people versus o.j. simpson" and why the doctor who first discovered the cte in football players says simpson is
