it is monday, february 5th. nick foles and the eagles going from underdog to top dog knocking off tom brady and the new england patriots 41-33 in super bowl lii. what a story. foles. nearly quit football three years ago and started the season as the back-up quarterback. he wound up taking home mvp honors. he went toe-to-toe with tom brady and look at this. he caught this fourth. >> in a game with record shattering offense, the touchdown that sealed the deal. we have andy scholes live in the stadium in minneapolis. what a game. >> reporter: certainly was, christine. the defensive play by ty the eagles. the eagles and patriots in the
super bowl that many of us will remember for a long time. it had the most epic offensive display from both teams you will ever see in a super bowl. foles not only throwing three touchdowns, but caught that at the end of the first half to give the eagles the lead. brady hit gronkowski to get the lead in the fourth. when he does that, that is a good sign. nick foles answering to zach ertz. the big play on detentifense co from brandon graham with the strip sack on tom brady. the patriots would get the ball back and have one last shot. tom brady's last chance, a hail mary, would fall incomplte. nick foles who almost left football a couple of years ago to back-up quarterback to now the hero of philadelphia. he was the mvp.
our own coy wire caught up with him after the game. >> just to be part of this and be part of the eagles organization and the first world championship. we are blessed. it is an unbelievable feeling. >> the city of philadelphia deserves it. we are happy to deliver. party are partying in the streets. >> eagles nation. please be safe. don't destroy everything. see you at the parade. >> losing sucks, but that's part of it. you show up and you try to win and sometimes you lose. that's the way it goes. >> reporter: all kinds of records were broken in super bowl lii. the two teams combining for 1,152 yards of offense. that is the most ever for any nfl game regular season or playoffs. nick foles as we showed you. he threw a touchdown pass, but he caught one. first time a player has done that in a super bowl.
and tom brady is the first player ever to throw for more than 500 yards and 3 touchdown passes and 0 interceptions and lose a game in the nfl. guys, he has five super bowl ri rings, he is married to supermodel gisele. i feel bad for tom brady. he had the best game ever as a quarterback and he lost in the super bowl. >> what a great game. >> i don't feel bad for tom brady. >> i feel badly for john berman. what are the reviews from the halftime show from justin timberlake? >> reporter: inside the stadium, people loved it. he sang the hit songs and tribute to prince in the middle. going into the stands and singing in the stands and saying that selfie with the young kid. i thought it was good. people around me thought it was good. you cannot make everyone happy. social media had mixed reviews. some people were not happy there
were no cameos or surprises from the past. that is the knock of the performance. >> social media is a breeding ground for negativity. that will be slanted toward complainers. thanks. nice to see you. thousands of eagles fans marching to city hall to celebrate the first title. police used hydrolic fluid on light poles to keep people from climbing them. that did not work. a car was overturned in center city. people seen jumping off the ritz carlton awning until it collapsed. >> stay safe. our own dave briggs is on assignment covering the game. while he is not here, he wanted us to remind you he called it -- listen to dave's super bowl
prediction from saturday. >> wasn't so long ago that one phil simms, giants quarterback got hurt and who took over? jeff hosstetler. they won a ring and got philly the first. >> dave called it. >> i'll call him up before i make a bet. fallout from the memo that republicans on the house intelligence committee released friday. two lawmakers disputing the president's claims. the memo does not clear the president as he is saying. >> the president said to speak today in probably echo this twe from the weekend.
there was no collusion. for more, let's bring in boris sanchez in west palm beach, florida. >> reporter: we heard several republican lawmakers on the committee outright contradicting the president and the stance that he voiced over the weekend via twitter that the nunes memo vindicates him and proves the investigation is a witch hunt. listen to trey gowdy. >> there is a russia investigation without a dossier. the dossier has nothing to do with the meeting at trump tower. the dossier has nothing to do with the e-mail. the dossier has nothing to do with george papadopoulos' meeting in great britain. there will be a russia probe
without a doss yier. >> reporter: trey gowdy is the only republican that has actually seen the raw data and intelligence that allowed the fisa court judge to issue the warrants to surveil carter page. if anyone knows about the memo or potential implication on the russia investigation, it is trey gowdy. despite that, the president tweeted portions of the editorial that there are political actors within the department of justice and fbi that are anti-trump. we heard from donald trump jr. on saturday and he said the release of the memo is like sweet revenge for him and his family. the adam schiff memo contains more context and contradicts portions of the nunes memo. we could see the intelligence
committee vote to declassify that as early as today. what is unclear is whether the white house will allow for the declassification the way they did the nunes memo. christine. >> boris, thank you for that. the nunes memo released friday is less than four pages. the story it tells is complicated. here is a quick review. the memo claims an fbi open efficiently told the house committee the salacious dossier was quote essential to securing a warrant for trump campaign aide carter page. >> the memo then under cuts its argument. noting the russia investigation was triggered earlier by information about a different campaign adviser george papadopoulos. the memo alleges the memo did not disclose the author, but the newspapers report that the fisa surveillance court was told of the political motivations.
and democrats are warning that releasing the nunes memo could lead to a constitutional crisis. the number two democrat in the senate, dick durbin put it that way on "state of the union." >> to say that is the end of the investigation and this is all that donald trump needs to fire rosenstein or fire robert mueller. i tell you, this could precipitate a constitutional crisis if the house republicans believe they set the stage for the president to end the investigation, they are saying in america, one man is above the law. that's not a fact. >> at the same moment former white house chief of staff reince priebus was on "meet the press" saying he never thought robert mueller as special counsel was at risk. >> i never felt of all of the things we went through in the west wing, i never felt the president was going to fire the special counsel. i only know what i dealt with and i can tell you i never felt
there was some sort of collusion or obstruction situation going on in the west wing. >> just a reminder, priebus left the white house back in july. a special agent with the fbi turning in his badge to protest what he believes is a bureau politicized by the republicans and trump administration. josh campbell writes fbi agents are doigged people who do not care about the political wins. to succeed, they need public backing. scorched partisan goals is threatening the support. this is raising doubts of the integrity of the fbi. paul ryan deleting a weekend tweet touting the tax overhaul. some calling the leader out of touch with americans. a woman said she was surprised
her pay went up $1.50 a week. she said that will cover her costco member for a year. that runs about $60 a year. after a severe backlash, ryan pulled the tweet. cnn requested a comment and we have not heard back. >> the tweet was to show how little it was and not how much it was. it highlights the billions of dollars the companies get. time for an early start on your money. asian stocks picking up where wall street left off. ha heng seng down. friday's jobs report was strong. wall street with the worst day of the trump presidency. the dow down 666 points. that is 2.5%. the biggest decline since brexit
in june of 2016. the steepest point decline since the financial crisis. the dow and s&p with the biggest drops with 4% each. friday's strong jobs report showed wage growth is there. 2.9% wage growth. it reinforces the concern of the inflation and bond market. some analysts think the market is long overdue for a correction. is this finally the place to buy or is this the beginning of the end of that ten-year bull market next month. this is withis what a late cycl like. all right. new clues in the deadly amtrak crash which killed two and injured more than 100. investigators looking into a key switch that diverted a train into another. that's coming up next. hi, i'm the internet! you know what's difficult?

corporation will have to help answer. csx is the railroad group that owns and operates and maintains the stretch of track. they are responsible for the signaling and switching and dispatching in the area. csx offered a statement with the condolences to the families of the victims in the crash. conductor and engineer of the train. while they did that, they did not acknowledge any wrongdoing of their own other than to say they would be cooperating with the ntsb investigation. another key piece of evidence in the investigation is a forward facing camera on the amtrak train that the investigators are analyzing in the lab in d.c. christine. >> thank you. iuma thurman telling her harrowing story about harvey weinstein. she says the former producer assaulted her. that's ahead. it's time for the 'ultimate sleep number event'

without a dossier. >> reporter: that statement coming from gowdy is significant. according to devin nunes, gowdy is the only one on the committee who has seen the raw data and intelligence that allowed the fisa court judge to go ahead and issue the warrants to surveil carter page. if anyone knows about the memo or implication on the russia investigation it is certainly trey gowdy. the president tweeted portions of "the wall street journal" editorial there there are political actors that are anti-trump. we heard from donald trump jr. on saturday. he said the release of the memo is sweet revenge for him and his family. democrats are pushing for the release of the schiff memo he whi -- memo which is the rebuttal of the nunes memo.
