2:31 am
justin bieber arrest. up is down, i'm not wearing a tie. what's going on in this world? but we want to start with serious news. we begin with breaking news in egypt. a series of deadly explosions rocked the country. first, what appears to be a car bomb near police headquarters in cairo. four people are dead, 76 wounded. oba the bomb did prominent damage. another explosion by a subway station killed one person. there are also now reports that a third explosion of an ied at a police station in the pyramids district of gaza went off as well. federal prosecutors are demanding years of documents from chris christie's re-election campaign and the state republican party is part of the bridge closure investigation. subpoenas from a u.s. attorney went out yesterday and they covered communications with out of ousted aid at the enter of the scandal. there are new develop. s in the case of the mayor dawn
2:32 am
zimmer and her accusations. they say the state's lieutenant governor pressured her to green light a develop. or risk hurricane sandy funding. according to a "new york times" report, several witness told authorities that mayor zimmer of hoboken alerted them to the incident as early as may. two of the witnesses were aides to the mayor. we turn our attention now to virginia and we now know that the former governor bob mcdonald and his wife had a chance at a lesser plea deal but turned down that offer. prosecutors reportedly offered the virginia republican a deal that would see him plead guilty to one felony fraud charge unrelated to corruption in the office if mcdonald accepted that plea, prosecutors agreed not to charge his wife maureen. maureen told the authorities she felt responsible for her family's ties to richmond based johnny williams. the mcdonalds face 14 counts of conspiracy and fraud and set to be arraigned in court later today. for nsa leaker edward knowden, there is no place like home. he said he would like to return
2:33 am
to the u.s. if the law would permit it. snowden said, "returning to the u.s., i think, is the best resolution for the government, the public and myself but it's not possible in the face of current whistle-blower laws which do not cover contractors like myself. this means there is no chance to have a fair trial and no way i can come home and make my case to a jury." yesterday u.s. attorney eric holder also said that he would be open to resolving snowden's situation but that clemency is going too far. his temporary asylum in russia is set to expire in august. bob menendez of new jersey is report thely under investigation for his ties to two fugitive bankers from weak dor. the two men -- from ecuador. the two men fled ecuador more than a decade ago and sentenced for embezzling billions of dollars from the bank. the brothers have been seeking permanent residence in the u.s.
2:34 am
and they attorney to senator menendez for help. the senator wrote letters and made phone calls to federal agencies on their behalf including asking for full consideration from the homeland security department. one of the brothers denied any political affiliation with the senator but campaign records show that relatives have donated $10,000 to the menendez campaign and at least $100,000 to the democratic party. senator menendez's office is saying a year after a false smear campaign launched against him once again we see anonymous sources making outlandish allegations. our office works each year with hundreds of individuals and families from across the country who are seeking help with immigration process. we review each and every request we receive. if we feel any inquiry is appropriate, we make it. in this particular case, senator menendez believed the family has been politically persecuted in ecuador including through the confiscation of media outlouts they owned which were critical of the government. we're not aware of any inquiry
2:35 am
into the senator's action onz this matter." as you all recall this is was the heist that inspired the movie "good fellas." remember that film? now members of this real life crime family are being held on federal charges for the biggest thefts in history. kate snow explains. >> december 11th, 1978, a bunch of mass gunmen stormed into the airlines cargo hanger and stole $5 million in cash and $1 million in jewelry. >> they rounded up nine employees working inside the building and herded them all to a second floor cafeteria. >> the jash acash and jewels we never found. until now the only person convicted was an inside man. as many as ten others us is spekded to be involved turned up dead. in new york, a parade of alleged aging mobsters, members of the organized crime family. at the front of the pack, 78-year-old vincent asaro accused of helping carry out the
2:36 am
heist. authorities have always believed the late jimmy burke was the mastermind behind the heist. robert de niro in the film version. >> never rat on your friends. and always keep your mouth shut. >> last summer the fbi found human remains buried in burke's basement. >> more to come from that. if you need more signs that democratic party is lining up behind team hillary, just follow the money. one arm of the operation that helped elect president obama is now pro hillary clinton. priorities usa action will now begin raising money for her potential white house run and will be co-chaired by jim mu seen yachlt their expanding hillary land to the entire planet on the latest cover. get a good look at this thing. yep. drink it in. but as it looks like some democrats prepared to anoint their nominee, republicans want to change the rules of how they elect their own. the rnc is ready to compress the
2:37 am
primary schedule in an attempt to avoid another dirty nomination process and allow the nominee more time to fundraise. the changes are up for a vote today, the final day of the rnc's winter meeting. now we go back to that "new york times" magazine cover. look at that. when we saw it, we knew we needed to give you a chance to have a caption contest for friday. tweet us your best and most creative captions using the hash tag #waytooearly. we move on to mike huck abeechlt he certainly expressed interest in making another run for president saying his record as governor of arkansas proves he can bring washington together. he'll have some work to do to win over critics though because following yesterday's comments about the gop's approach to woo back female voters, republicans are concerned. >> the republicans don't have a war on women. they have a war for women. for them to be empowered, to be something other than victims of their gender. if the democrats want to insult
2:38 am
the women of america by making them believe that they are helpless without uncle sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it. let us take that discussion all across america because women are far more than the democrats have played them to be. and women across america need to stand up and say enough of that nonsense. >> a politician who was thrust into the spotlight after being violently attacked by his own son is oadvocating mental healt reform. he was raebedly stabbed business i had son gus. his son later committed suicide. he was admitted to a mental health institution but a long term bed could not be found for him in the amount of time required by state law. gus was released and a day later attacked his father. >> i didn't know what was going to happen. but the next morning, you know, i felt like there would be a
2:39 am
confrontation. i didn't -- any no reason to think there would be violence. but, you know, i got ready for work and i went out to the barn to feed the horses. and gus was coming across the yard. and he was -- i said hey bud, how did you sleep? he said fine. i turned my back and, you know, i turned my back, i had feed in my hands. and he was just on me. >> he attacked you? >> he got me twice. >> sad story for that family. he says he wants his son to be remembered as a good kid and that ultimately it was the system that failed. okay, we switch gears now to talk about business news. we're going to end out the week today because we're going to learn later we get another batch of earning reports out. yesterday was not a good one for wall street. all three indexes were down as the dow extended the losses into a third straight session. courty reagan joins us now from cnbc headquarters. so we had that market selloff yesterday. psychologically the number is still above 16,000 so explain.
2:40 am
>> sure. it was kind of a rough day on wall street again. it wasn't all totally explainable. the market selloff triggered in part by disappointing manufacturing data out of china which is, of course, the world's second biggest economy. so that's raising concerns that a slowdown there could eat into global growth. selling picked up following weaker than expected reports on u.s. home sales and manufacturing. some folks think it's the correction that we needed because stocks have run too far too fast. the dow though now sitting at a five-week low and both the dow and s&p 500 are on track for the worst performance in six weeks. but it should be noted the s&p 500 is still just 1% off its all time high. and michigan governor rick snyder has a novel plan to help get detroit back on its feet. he's calling on washington to allocate 50,000 special visas to get highly skilled immigrants to live and work in the city. they would be aimed at those with advanced agrees in the auto
2:41 am
industry, i.t. and health care feels. they allow people with special tall eents to enter the u.s. without a specific job offer. >> no specific job offer. all right. so let's talk about one thing that everybody is talking about, courtney, apple which is hard to believe it was 30 years ago that steve jobs really set the world on fire with the first introduction of the apple computer. but now we're talking about apple tv instead and iphone that's potentially are going to come with larger screens. it used to be get everything real small, now we're getting back to the big screens. >> i know, everything old is new again. apple reportedly plans to introduce two new iphone mod thlz year with larger screens. the current models have four inch screen. they are working on technology to reate curve screens. those likely won't be installed on this year's iphones. the wall street journal says they will scrap will plastic i-phone 5c which hasn't caught on with consumers. several retailers cut the price of the 5c and some are just giving it away. >> wow. so i don't need another device. i have the ipad, black berry,
2:42 am
iphone, i'm done. i'm running out of arms for all this stuff. have a great weekend. nice to see you. still ahead on "way too early," greg maddox is going to the hall of fame. there is a controversy about what he'll wear. faux pas or public speaking device? maryland governor martin o'malley's final state of the state address and we'll let you be the judge. yeah. a ron burgundy moment, maybe, maybe not. that story and a check on weather when "way too early" comes right back.

2:47 am
lost their spot to jones says her fame is the reason she made the team. bobsled officials are defending the choice saying the best way to bring publicity to the sport is win gold medals. we'll see how she does. most baseball fans think of greg mad ox and think of him dominating at the top of the atlanta braves rotation. that's not the same image he has of himself. he says won't have a team logo on the cap of his hall of fame cap. he began the career with the chicago cubs, he played 12 years. he played 11 in atlanta and says he loves both places. as a brave though, maddox won three cy young awards and pitched the braves to a world series title. he'll be inducted on july 27th. news of pop star justin bieber's dui arrest crossed into the sports world. the dallas stars used this maple leafs fan image with bieber's mug shot on the jumbotron to mock their toronto opponents in last night's matchup. the leafs must have been embarrass the because they lost
