tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  December 17, 2015 4:00pm-5:01pm PST

4:00 pm
there were any things -- other plots that they talked about, who those participants may have been. there could be this treasure trove of information that he has, if he has it. but i agree with jeff, if he doesn't have it, he's going away for quite some time because he doesn't have anything to offer. >> that's it for me. erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. the fbi making a major arrest in the san bernardino terror attack. plus, vladimir putin calling trump brave, talented, the absolute leader in the race. chelsea clinton headlining a campaign for her mother. good evening to our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, the breaking
4:01 pm
news. terror charges. a man has been arrested by the fbi in connection with the san bernardino terror attack. also, for plotting two additional terror attacks that are just coming to light tonight. enrique marquez, a long-time friend of the male shooter, was charged with plotting with syed farook using pipe bombs. he was also charged with the plan to shoot drivers in their cars on a busy freeway. and there are stunning details in these plots. kyung lah is "outfront." >> we're learning about those attacks. they were planned some years ago. enrique marquez telling investigators they didn't go through with it. he said that he and farook grew more distant and then the san bernardino attacks. >> reporter: just hours after the terror attack in san
4:02 pm
bernardino, enrique marquez called 911. according to a federal complaint, he told the operator he was the shooter, talking about syed riswan farook. the expletive use my gun in the shooting. the ar-15 rifles were purchased by marquez in late 2011 and early 2012. why? they were childhood friends. court documents say farook first introduced marquez to islam. marquez would convert in 2007. the complaint says in 2010, farook also introduced marquez to radical islamic ideas, like the lectures of al qaeda recruiter awlaki. they made homemade pipe bombs. on an orange county california freeway, deploying their pipe bombs during rush hour and then gunning down drivers who tried
4:03 pm
to flee. investigators say marquez also purchased explosives, a bottle of smokeless powder when he bought the guns. that was found in the undetonated bombs in the san bernardino attack and also traced back to farook's apartment. >> at this point in the investigation, marquez can supply a lot of information. that's a critical thing, is that he can fill in a lot of blanks about a time period that electronically the fbi may not be able to recover at this point. >> reporter: the terror plot stunned marquez's family who remain out of public view, telling reporters only that he was, quote, a good boy. >> he couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag. >> reporter: marquez worked at the bar for three years. marquez never mentioned his sham marriage to farook's relative. he never talked about the hobby he would tell investigators, building pipe bombs with farook or the guns he bought that would murder and terrorize his community. >> that's what makes him so
4:04 pm
spooky, he's just a normal every day joe blow that you don't give the time of day to and the next thing you know -- >> and the next thing you know, kyung there saying he bought the guns, plotted to kill people at a community college, as you're reporting on a freeway. terrifying acts and what was the reasoning that he was the one that bought the weapons that farook used? >> because farook had already purchased weapons. that's why he asked -- that's why marquez was asked to go ahead and purchase them for farook. you know, it's a bit of a mystery as to exactly why he did it other than they had this very close friendship. we should add, erin, he's expected to make an initial court appearance in federal court today. >> kyung lah, thank you very much. the breaking news of marquez's arrest came a few
4:05 pm
hours after president obama addressed the nation admitting that the government cannot stop lone wolf attacks. >> because they are smaller, often self-initiating, self-motivating, they are harder to detect. and that makes it harder to prevent. >> jim sciutto is "outfront" live in washington. jim, the president warning americans to be vigilant during the holiday vacation? >> that's right. repeating that familiar phrase, if you see something, say something. that we all have a responsibility to do that. but his message was largely meant to be reassuring. he said there is no credible or specific threat to the u.s. homeland right now. he visited the national counsel terrorism center to say, listen, we have this great team here fighting every day to prevent attacks. but -- and i hate to say but again, as you highlighted there, erin, the trouble with lone wolf attacks is that they are harder to prevent because you don't have those points that are warning signs. a phone call from a cave in
4:06 pm
afghanistan or things like that, that's the new normal that the president was in effect laying out today. >> and disney world, disneyland putting in metal detectors, extra police, specially trained dogs. is disney now an isis target? >> we don't know that disney is an isis target. there's no specific or credible threat that we've heard to disney world but it's one of many businesses, college campuses, schools, et cetera that are taking precautions like this now in light of the new threat and we saw earlier this week, with the l.a. schools shutting down, the new york schools not, which turned out to be a hoax threat, different communities and places are making their own judgments and it's really hard to make those judgments correctly. again, it is the new normal. and the one thing i would say -- and this is something that counterterrorism officials say to me all the time, still the real risk to you and me from terrorism remains infinite and
4:07 pm
it's something we're going to have to live with. "outfront" right now, bob baer and seth jones. we're learning in these charges of at least two more specific terror attacks planned by syed farook. one involved someone at a cafeteria at a college, the other one, they were going to throw pipe bombs on a highway. they were going to run car to car killing these people on a very busy stretch of the freeway. multiple attacks over a erd p period of time. how surprised are you that no one picked up on any of this? >> erin, not at all. they were not on the internet. they were not exchanging e-mails. they were not calling home. this wasn't directed from the outside. so as far as we can see, these people simply have absorbed an ideology, this death cult that told them to do this and it's
4:08 pm
the randomness of this that i think is really surprising for most of us because obviously those people on the 91 or the school in riverside are totally innocent of anything as were the co-workers in san bernardino. but this is the sort of jihadism that's come out of syria and iraq over the last two years. >> when you say 91, of course, you're referring to the freeways that they were planning the attacks. seth, do you think there are many more people out there planning attacks like these? >> erin, i'm afraid to say yes. in the last year, really since march of 2014, according to the recent george washington university report, there were 71 arrests for individuals with -- involved in isis-related activity in the united states alone. about a quarter of those were involved in terrorist plots. all of those in the u.s. and i think that gives us a sense of a trend that we face right now. these kinds of lone wolf or stray dog-style attacks. >> as the president was forced
4:09 pm
to admit, the government cannot stop these. but we're learning it wasn't just the plots that they were working on together, farook and marquez, but that marquez, who was arrested today, bought the assault rifles in the san bernardino attack and in the complaint it says that one major reason for that was it was because he was white and he and farook thought he would not attract attention as farook would because is he middle eastern. they outplayed any racial profiling? >> buy a gun is less suspicious than a muslim. we profile. gun stores do as well. as well as airports. we don't like to admit it but we do. it wouldn't be as suspicious about the planning and in fact
4:10 pm
they did. what happened is they are evolving and, as seth said, there is a lot of them out there. as i speak today, the fbi is worried about other cells out there, ones that they can't see. >> which is the terrifying reality. you're talking about the raw numbers. today, not only did the president say they can't stop these sorts of attacks, the assistant secretary for the state department testified before congress and what she said today was that the state department has revoked 9,000 visas. 9,000 visas because of security concerns. the u.s. has lost track of all of those individuals. they don't know anything about what happened to those 9,000 people. they could be anywhere? >> they could be anywhere. the vast majority of terrorism-related plots that i mentioned earlier were u.s. citizens. so even regardless of these, you still face a major threat from people living in the united
4:11 pm
states and they are citizens of the united states. >> in this case, there were citizens and noncitizens. bob, how significant is the news from disney installing metal detectors? it's an unprecedented move. you're now going to have metal detectors at disney world. >> well, erin, i think it was inevitable after the paris attacks and going after the stadium. a lot of lives were saved because the suicide bombers didn't get inside the stadium. didn't even get near the french president. and so it does work. and the suicide vests have a lot of metal in them and i should ask that they are very easy to make. the san bernardino attackers, i believe, could have made them if they had chosen to and that's what scared disneyland and sea world or anywhere that people congregate, you could create
4:12 pm
mass slaughter with those suicide vests. >> thank you both very much tonight. >> thank you, erin. "outfront" tonight, vladimir putin calling donald trump outstanding. and marco rubio and ted cruz in a fierce battle. is one of them lying? and chelsea clinton is headlining a campaign for her mother. hi i'm heather cox

t. rowe price. invest with confidence. a brutal fight between marco rubio and ted cruz tonight on the campaign trail today both candidates accusing the other of, well, muddying the record, lying on immigration reform. tom foreman is "outfront." >> marco rubio attacking ted cruz on the campaign trail.
4:16 pm
>> he's the one that has supported legalization. >> reporter: cruz hitting right back at rubio. >> he still supports amnesty and citizenship today. >> reporter: both men are locked in a bitter battle over immigration with dueling claims about each other. so who is right? start with cruz's accusation. >> there was a battle over amnesty and some chose, like senator rubio, to support a massive amnesty plan. >> reporter: that's a bipartisan immigration support plan in 2013 that was crafted by rubio and seven other senators, the so-called gang of eight. that legislation did include a pathway to citizenship for many who came illegally. >> we have an obligation and a need to address the reality of the situation that we face. >> reporter: many conservatives never liked rubio's support for it and cruz know it is. but rubio is counterattacking.
4:17 pm
>> ted cruz supported a 500% increase in the number of h 1b visas. >> reporter: the problem for cruz, that's true, too. he pushed amendments to that same bill that would not have offered citizenship but would have legalized the status of many who came illegally. >> i don't want immigration reform to fail. i want immigration reform to pass. >> reporter: cruz's camp says it forced democrats to abandon the plan. but listen to cruz in a radio interview back at the time. >> legalization is the gang of eight bill and it's what i have endeavored to do was improve that bill so that actually fixes the problem. >> essentially, rubio is saying that he and cruz are not that far apart. cruz is vehementally denying it.
4:18 pm
they are both going to be tough on immigration going forward, each of them potentially has a problem with this issue in this race. erin? >> thank you, tom. now, political commentator and the former communication center for ted cruz, amanda carpenter and matt lewis. his wife was a former consultant for cruz's senate campaign. good to have both of you with me. do you believe ted cruz's explanation for his apparent flip-flop on the issue? >> no. no, i don't. these are the facts. during the debate he said he never supported legalization and doesn't intend to support it in the future. as we just saw in that segment, in 2013, just two years ago, he did in fact introduce an amendment that would legalize illegals. now, at the time, he was pressed by conservatives like byron york, a conservative writer for the washington examiner, and robby george, a highly respective conservative at princeton. they pressed him. is this a poison bill?
4:19 pm
are you trying to kill the bill? he assured him no. he's been compromising in good faith and will pass immigration reform. so honestly he was either misleading us during the debate tuesday night or he was misleading us in 2013. >> amanda, that's a tough issue, right? which is it? >> well, it's very simple and i can tell you what the record is because i was there working for ted cruz at the time. the gang of eight bill contained two things. a path to citizenship and path to legalization. now, the issue when this bill was presented by the gang of eight, including rubio, they wanted everyone to believe this was an enforcement bill. you can look at the interviews that rubio did where they tried to convince conservatives to go along with this and not contain a path to citizenship. what ted cruz did in proposing that is an amendment plank out. that's leaving the legalization link in. when he made a speech talking
4:20 pm
about it, he said, listen, you guys can have what you want if you're willing to give up the citizenship in play. just because he was silent on legalization, does not mean he supported the legalization play which is what cruz is trying to muddy the water between. this is so far in the we'd weeds, ted cruz is against it. ted cruz won by defeating the bill through the amendment strategy and has the entire conservative movement behind him because they were with him. for the life of me, i can't think of why marco rubio is trying to broker this deal and just trying to go against ted cruz. i don't think it's the right strategy for him. i think it's causing a lot of people to be skeptical of marco rubio. >> matt? >> again, ted cruz, when he was trying to pass this amendment, which would have legalized illegal immigrants, he was pressed by -- >> there was no amendment. the gang of eight bill contained
4:21 pm
the legalization itself. >> he was pressed by byron york and robby george who followed up and asked him multiple times and ted cruz said that he wants immigrants to be able to come out from behind the shadows. he said he wants to pass commonsense immigration reform. and let me just say, if i'm not smart enough to follow this, because i wasn't working for cruz, it's funny because bret baier, almost every conservative -- >> we can line up rush limbaugh and all the rest as well. >> the talk radio hosts, i think, are different. they may not be as intellectually honest as a conservative -- >> i'm going to address what matt raised. he raised the fact that ted cruz said he wants immigration reform. you know what, a lot of people say they want health care reform, too. that doesn't mean that they want
4:22 pm
obamacare. why didn't he lead the fight against obama's amnesty? >> there was an immigration reform bill in the senate. it passed the senate. ted cruz did not stop him. the immigration reform bill was in the senate. at the time, ted cruz said he supported the bill and he supported commonsense immigration and he said that -- >> he supported a bill that would actually do what people were saying it would do, a border enforcement bill. >> amanda, are you taking issue -- when marco rubio said that ted cruz supported a 500% increase in the number of h1b visas and doubling of a number of green cards, that's what he is saying ted cruz did in this amendment. do you dispute that? >> there were a series of amounts. whether or not he supported legalization. the amendment that is being disputed was the one that attacked the citizenship. that was everything in that
4:23 pm
debate and ted cruz was successful in the judiciary markup, if you look at what chuck schumer was saying and why you must reject the citizenship, it would take down the entire bill. everyone knew what was going on at the time and for the life of me i don't know why marco rubio is choosing -- >> so can i ask a -- >> i want to understand, amanda, you're saying he wanted to bring more people into this country and not allow them to be citizens? doesn't that kind of make the problem worse intellectually? >> listen, ted cruz has been very consistent in saying that he supports legal immigration. he has supported ways to legally expand existing programs. everything that has been disputed in this is the citizenship plank. that is what the fight was over and what it's always been about. marco rubio is compromised on this issue. ted cruz is not. that's why marco rubio is trying to muddy the waters for ted cruz on this issue and it's going to backfire because marco rubio should really just own what he did and campaign on that rather than trying to tear down somebody else. >> erin, can i ask you a quick
4:24 pm
question? first of all, i would say that i think legalization in itself may be a pathway to citizenship and take them ten years, pay back taxes, we can have that debate. the question i have for amanda is, when ted cruz told -- >> i don't have to answer your questions, matt. i'm here to talk about what happened. >> you don't have to answer it. i'd like to ask it, though. when ted cruz told byron york that he wanted this immigration bill to pass and legalization, was he lying? was it just a poison pill? that's fair. if it's a bad bill, maybe cruz wanted to kill it and maybe he was misleading people. was that what it was? >> the entire purpose of the amendment strategy was to expose the fact that the gang of eight contained a path to citizenship. i mean -- >> so he never really supported the amendment? >> other strong conservatives just as jeff sessions and others in the entire conservative movement acted upon this and supported what ted cruz is doing
4:25 pm
and won the debate. i can't go any further than that. >> we will leave it there, then. thank you both very much. obviously that fight a lot more to come. "outfront" next, putin calling trump an outstanding personality. trump saying late tonight that that is a great honor. and baltimore's prosecutor wants the focus of glowing magazine charges in the freddie gray case. now major questions. did her strategy blow the case?

4:27 pm
and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you.

this is their home. don't touch marine life in tide pools. take away your trash and your happy memories. always enjoy and protect our marine habitats. tonight, putin praising trump, the russian president calling the presidential front-runner, quote, outstanding and talented. donald trump said he would, quote, get along very well with putin. so will this matter if trump can't get along with u.s. allies in his own party? dana bash is "outfront." russia's vladimir putin is all about projecting strength. that's what his shirtless horseback riding is about. so it should probably come as no surprise that putin admires the gop candidate obsessed with winning, saying this about
4:30 pm
donald trump. >> translator: he is a very flamboyant man, very talented. no doubt. >> reporter: prompted by the fact that other gop candidates slam russia's leader for intervening in syria, trump praises him and welcomed putin's statement saying, it is always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond. but outside of russia, most world leaders are concerned about trump rather than complementary, especially after his call to ban muslims from coming into the area. >> we have to ban the muslims. does that make sense, by the way? >> reporter: britain's prime minister took the unusual step of slamming trump from the floor of parliament. >> i think he's remarks are divisive, stupid and wrong and i think if he came to visit our country i think he would unite us all against him. >> reporter: and trump achieved a difficult feat, uniting leaders in the arab world and israel in condemning them. saudi prince tweeted last week,
4:31 pm
you are a disgrace not only to the gop but to all of america. withdraw from the u.s. presidential race as you will never win. that criticism is not likely to matter much to conservative primary voters who like trump's talk on the trail to late night tv. >> jeb bush is scared of you or just scared in general? >> i think he's scared. i defined him. i gave him this term low-energestic. he's low energy. >> reporter: it may not go over well with republicans. perhaps trump can send everyone, including jimmy kimmel -- >> winners aren't losers. >> reporter: now more on trump's statement warmly welcoming putin's phrase of him. he always felt that russia and the u.s. should work well
4:32 pm
together restoring world peace and not to mention world trade. when it comes to gop primary voters, putin is a boogie man. you know, erin, when it comes to putin, people who know him and have studied him, his whole life has been about restoring russia's power and relevance. that's the best thing he can hear from somebody like donald trump. >> all right. dana, thank you. and now, donald trump's campaign spokesperson, katrina pearson is with me along with radio host ben ferguson. putin comes out and calls trump outstanding. is that an endorsement? >> this is a powerful man recognizing someone in the united states running for president who is also a powerful man. it was not an endorsement. >> it was not an endorsement. that's your way of saying you don't really want one. let's be honest, most persons don't like putin. 67% have an unfavorable view of the man. >> that's why he also said it's up to recognize trump is a
4:33 pm
source to be reckoned with. >> ben? >> i'm pretty sure donald trump gave him an a on leadership, referring to vladimir putin, a man who had a plane shot out of the sky with innocent women and men in it and children. a man who overran in the ukraine earlier last year and you really want to be buddies with that guy and to say -- for donald trump to say that vladimir putin gets an "a" mark from him on leadership at killing innocent people, invading countries that are not his, expanding the world reach of russia and going into syria and having innocent women and children, refugees be killed at his command and you want me to believe that donald trump would give him an "as a" rating how do you defend that? >> this was in specific regard to isis, period.
4:34 pm
the united states has been invading countries in the middle east, toppling dictators and creating a vacuum for isis. >> so you're saying the foreign policy of donald trump -- let's be clear. are you saying that donald trump's foreign policy is the same as vladimir putin and you're saying that you wouldn't have gone after osama bin laden in afghanistan? >> we're talking about -- >> let's talk about afghanistan. are you saying that the trump campaign -- >> let's talk about isis right now. go ahead, katrina, and then ben you can reply. >> if people who don't like trump really want to go out and make this broad-brush stroke, just like you're doing, ben -- it doesn't work. he gave him an "a" rating. pertaining to isis. acknowledge that. >> do you actually believe that vladimir putin is on the same team with the united states of america and going after isis or are you really naive enough to believe that he's not there to prop up assad, which is
4:35 pm
completely the opposite of what the united states interest is? >> i think the american public is not on the same side as the president when it comes to fighting isis. just look at the poll. >> do you want to keep assad in power? >> take the "a" out of it for one moment. donald trump said, "it is always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man highly respected within his own country and beyond." >> he's giving him accolades. >> should donald trump have talked about it being an honor to get a compliment from the man? >> he is the one "outfront" fighting isis. this is in the context of fighting terrorism, fighting isis in the middle east. vladimir putin has stepped up. including americans who may not like vladimir putin but they like the fact that he's stepping up and taking action against isis. >> katrina -- >> whereas, the american government are not doing that. >> katrina, with all due respect -- with all due respect,
4:36 pm
let's be intellectually honest here. maybe the trump campaign believes this -- that somehow he's a saviour in the middle east and donald trump is somehow in line with vladimir putin on foreign policy is kind of embarrassing if you actually think that's what the foreign policy of the united states is, if propping assad up -- >> the united states has invaded in the middle east, creating vacuums, making isis grow stronger. is that what you're saying? >> are you saying that donald trump's foreign policy would be not to go into afghanistan specifically and not go after al qaeda after 9/11? you said we had wars in the middle east. the first war that we're talking about is afghanistan. >> actually, iraq is the first war. actually, iraq. >> we went in to afghanistan first after 9/11. you should know that. we went into iraq second. you should also know that. >> we are talking about isis,
4:37 pm
ben. mr. trump has said from the beginning we need to fight them, go where they are and take the fight to them. vladimir putin is the only one that has stepped up on the world stage and leading on this issue. >> propping up assad. putin is propping up assad. you should understand that, so should donald trump. >> thank you.

4:42 pm
officers in the death of freddie gray. >> i have heard your calls for no justice, no peace. however, your peace is sincerely needed as i work to deliver justice on behalf of freddie gray. >> reporter: the 35-year-old's decision to charge one of the officers with second-degree murder surprised some and suddenly put the youngest elected state attorney in the country in the national spotlight. >> it's disproportionately affected so many communities of color and i wanted to reform that system. >> reporter: gray was arrested april 12th and broke his neck while being transported in a police van. one week later, the 25-year-old was dead. the community reacted with weeks of protest and looting as the city of baltimore was placed under a national guard curfew. mosby helped restore peace and sense of sus jis when she decided to bring a case against the six officers.

college law school magazine described her as the prosecutor who quieted a troubled city. >> as a prosecutor, you should not bring charges if you believe you're a probable cause that these individuals are responsible for the charges. >> reporter: but after a hung jury in the case of officer william porter, the one confident state attorney is now under mounting pressure. >> i'm terrified. are we going to have five more mistrials. >> there are people that are going to say she overcharged the case and can't get a conviction. >> this is a defining case. there is no question that she will be defined by this case for the rest of her career. >> reporter: mosby is not commenting. the case is under a gag order. >> i'm 100% that he'll be retried. i don't think she's going to take this setback lightly. >> reporter: and what we do know is that attorneys for william porter met today with judge barry williams in his chamber. the meeting lasted for about 30

minutes. they walked out, didn't say anything. the public information officer has told us that a new trial date has not been set. but erin, even though the defendants does not have any discretion as to whether there will be a retrial, they can't ask for a postponement. they can change the venue and not be retried here in the city but it's ultimately up to the judge to see if the citizens of this community, the community of freed freddie gray will be allowed to be jurors once again. >> jean, thank you. let me go to paul callan. does this mean it's most likely done? he's not going to be charged? >> i think it indicates state attorney marilyn mosby has learned a lesson. let's be careful about making a decision about what she's going to do next.
4:45 pm
they are going to look at the case and decide strategically, does it make sense? and i think that's what a good, smart prosecutor ought to be doing. >> did she overcharge? >> i think she made a big mistake in the way she charged this case. we used to have a motto that you start strong and you finish strong. so you want to start with the strong case that you're going to win because that's going to send a message to the community and other potential jurors that this is a good case. she starts with her weak case, loses and sets a bad tone for the future indicateses. >> the driver was actually charged with murder. >> yes. >> does this change the likely outcome of that? >> it certainly weakens her position with respect to the driver because any panel of new jurors coming in are going to say she lost the first case, there are going to be references to the first case. it puts her in a weak position as opposed to a strong position. one more thing, it's like dominos. the first domino goes down the one way and the others may fall
4:46 pm
as well. if she loses two in a row, there's no chance she's going to win those four remaining cases. so she desperately needs a victory on the next case. >> and she's at a crucial point right now. paul, thank you very much. next, hillary clinton hosting a major fund-raiser tonight, daughter, chelsea clinton headlining for the first time. and new homes so cheap they are a steal. literally. we'll show you.
