frustration following the verdict in the george zimmerman case is being channeled into organized action. this is not a one-day thing. demonstration are expanding. political pressure on the system is mounting. at the naacp convention in orlando, florida, 32 miles from where trayvon martin was shot and killed, a movement is coming into focus as more than 1 million signatures have already been collected from naacp and move on petitions combined, to demand the justice department bring federal civil rights charges against george zimmerman. today speaking before the convention, attorney general eric holder, the justice department investigation into the killing of trayvon martin is open an ongoing and criticized the kind of laws that help create the climate he thinks led to martin's death. >> it's time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sew dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods. these laws try to fix something that was never broken. there has always been a legal defense for using deadly force if, and the if is important, if no safe retreat is avai

be here to respond directly. >>> and later, george zimmerman is briefly taken into police custody after he allegedly threatened his estranged wife and her father with a handgun. reactions to this story are coming up. >>> but we begin tonight with a remarkable and possibly accidental development in the ongoing march towards a u.s. military attack on syria. the white house had clearly been in full court press mode, scheduling interviews for the president with six news networks for tonight, heralding president obama's speech to the nation tomorrow night, all to persuade a deeply skeptical american public and congress of the necessity of a military strike against syria. in what seemed to be a political train wreck in the making and/or the possibility of yet another war in the middle east, suddenly today looks like a crisis that might be improbably altogether avoided when secretary of state john kerry asked at a london press conference if syria could do anything to stop an attack, said this. >> sure. he could turn over every single bit of his chemical weapons to the international commu

dealt a setback, possibly temporary, to the democratic-led legislative investigation into the george washington bridge lane closings. yet the judge ruled against the legislative investigations' pursuit of documents because, because an ongoing federal investigation is reviewing potential criminal conduct by the same former aides to governor chris christie. we're going to report on that issue, the interplay between these two inquiries in a moment. but first, here's exactly what you need to know about today's ruling. it addresses two people you may have heard of, two people at the center of the bridgegate issues. former christie campaign manager, bill steppian, whom christie said he fired for his tone, not for involvement in these lane closings, and bridgette ann kelly, christie's former deputy chief of staff. kelly, of course, had a direct link to the lane closings, because of that infamous e-mail, quote, time for some traffic problems in ft. lee, to which david wildstein replied, got it. the legislature has seen testimony and documents from both of them, and wildstein invoked his fift

original conventional wisdom was to treat jeb bush like george w. bush in 2000. george w. bush stepped onto the scene in 2000, the shock a awe term you heard for jeb, his expectation at start of this year, that's what george w. did and at this point in the 2000 cycle in the fall of 1999 it's amazing, if you go back and look at the polls, in the republican primaries george w. bush was polling at 60%. his nearest competitor was john mccain down at 12%. and you look at it right now, jeb bush is at about 7%. so we are finally now seeing, it's been a slow-moving train wreck here but you've seen it over the last nine months, the big difference between jeb bush and george w. bush but also between the year 2000 and the year 2016 in the republican party. >> part of that also i think has to do with the degree of power the, quote, establishment has, the degree to which the base was kind of willing to take signals from its leaders, which has really changed in -- >> it's the ultimate undoing. people say oh, it's bush fatigue, it's the iraq war. the ultimate undoing of jeb bush is the legacy of the

of george washington bridge. >> believe it or not, a traffic scandal is threatening to upend the christie administration, a scandal that just a week ago the governor dismissed. >> you really are not serious with that question. >> and you can understand why christie waved the allegations off as a joke. on the face, they seem absurd, that a christie crony ordered one of the worst traffic jams in recent memory to punish a political foe. the george washington bridge between new jersey and new york city is the busiest bridge in the world, and on september 9th, the first day of school, two of the three entrance lanes to the bridge were closed and stayed that way for four days. an epic traffic jam turned the town of ft. lee, where the bridge connects new jersey to new york, into a parking lot. there was no notice or cause given for the closures, but mark socolich, the democratic mayor of ft. lee, had an idea as to why. he believed the lanes were closed in political retribution for refusing to endorse christie for governor. the port authority said the lane closures were due to a traffic

republican political establishment. and it is the legacy of george w. bush. a legacy that was rejected wholesale by voters in 2006 and 2008. but that the republican party still has not been able to reconcile. now trump is openly exploiting that vulnerability and forcing the party to relitigate george w. bush's record on terrorism and war. it all started with an exchange at the second republican debate where jeb bush defended his older brother against criticism from trump. >> your brother and your brother's administration gave us barack obama because it was such a disaster, those last three months, that abraham lincoln couldn't have been elected. >> you know what? as it relates to my brother, there's one thing i know for sure. he kept us safe. i don't know if you remember -- [ cheers and applause ] donald. you remember the -- >> it was a big applause line for jeb because "he kept us safe" is a very familiar refrain for republicans defending george w. bush. but friday when donald trump quite factually noted that george w. bush was president on september 11th, 2001, he apparently crossed

lindsey graham and george pataki did not even have enough support to make it into the undercard debate. as for one-time front-runner jeb bush, he did make that main stage but not by all that much. bush is polling at 4% in the two most recent national polls, and he's trailing both trump and carson by nearly 20 points. today as he has throughout his struggling campaign bush once again had to reckon with the legacy of his famous name. a new biography of the former president george h.w. bush, now 91 years old and fighting a form of parkinson's disease, reveals some amazing details including that bush privately referred to his 1988 democratic presidential opponent michael dukakis as "midget nerd." but the bigger muse was bush's scathing comments to biographer john meacham about former vice president dick cheney and former defense secretary donald rumsfeld, two of the key figures in his son george w. bush's administration. cheney built his own empire and asserted too much hard-line influence within george w. bush's white house according to george h.w. bush. while rumsfeld "served the
