coming up on "early today." turning the heat up on donald trump's campaign manager but the donald is not backing down. >> she was running up and grabbing and asking questions and she wasn't supposed to be doing that and i told him you should never settle this case. i think they've really hurt a very good person. the clock is ticking on the remaining gop candidates. and could apple force them -- the fbi to show them they broke into the iphone. the passing of an acting legend and a one of a kind shot for golfer bubba watson. "early today" starts right now.
thanks for joining us today. stand by your man. that is the tone from donald trump after his campaign manager was arrested yesterday. charged with one count of misdemeanor battery. this appears to show him grabbing now ex-reporter michelle field's arm as she tried to ask trump a question during a rally. he turned himself into police and was issued a notice to appear in court. his attorney says he's innocent. what is the latest? >> heated words at a town hall in wisconsin last night. there were accusations and explanations as the republican candidates for president tried to convince voters to choose them. >> caller: ted cruz, donald trump and john kasich tried to sway voters during a town hall ahead of next week's important
primary in the state. a defiant trump defended his campaign manager in the wake of a battery charge against him. >> i'm a loyal person. we have to tell it like it is. it would be so easy to terminate this man, ruin his life. >> trump says he will not fire him even though security video shows him grabbing a reporter at a campaign event march 8th in southern florida. ted cruz, fresh off an endorsement by scott walker -- >> i have chosen to endorse ted cruz. >> says the incidents shows a greater problem. >> now physical violence. that has no place in a political campaign and no place in our democracy. >> kasich agrees. >> if it was me, if i was in this circumstance, i would take some sort of action. either suspension or firing. >> reporter: hillary clinton applauded the reporter for following through on the incident. >> certainly suggests that the
authorities thought her story was credible. >> donald trump says he will not support a gop nominee who is not himself saying the party has been unfair. >> thank you for that update. bernie sanders is campaigning hard in wisconsin trying to build momentum from his weekend wins ahead of next week's big primary. speaking at a rally last night, sanders went after governor scott walker. >> in other words, you can get a pretty good understanding of what i will do as president by looking at scott walker and seeing i will do exactly the opposi opposite. [ applause ] i am sure there are areas we agree on, i just haven't seen them yet. >> the sanders campaign is declaring victory after hillary clinton says she welcomes adding a debate ahead of the primary.
be sure to watch msnbc tonight for exclusive candidate town halls. john kasich with chuck todd at 7:00. followed by trump at 8:00. and at 9:00 clinton and sanders one on one. and as more republican senators break with party leadership in meeting with supreme court nomination, merrick garland. they high court is seeing the reverberations of antonin scalia's death. the court split its decision, 4-4. this is the second tie since scalia's death. it leaves the lower court's ruling in place. they can continue to collect fees from those who choose not to join since they enjoy the benefits of contract negotiations. and justice scalia was expected to rule against allowing unions to charge nonmembers.
and the man has been identified as 58-year-old mustafa, an egyptian national with a criminal record. according to officials he passed through airport security in alexandria with personal items he used to imply he was wearing a an explosive belt and demanded the plane be diverted to cyprus, where it's believed his ex-wife lives and after passengers were released, he surrendered to authorities, but not before posing for this selfie. fortunately none of the passengers or crew was injured. we're also getting new details on how the fbi was able to hack the iphone of syed farook without apple's help. it now appears investigators turned overseas for assistance. here with more. >> reporter: four months after the san bernardino terror attack, they finally have access
to the cell phone of gunman, syed farook. they fbi has been getting help from this israel company, experts in mobile forensics. the justice department now dropping its court case against apple. >> it's about everyone's phones. >> reporter: daniel gilmore, a text expert says many knowledgeable hackers could have gained access. >> if someone has physical access to a device and an unlimited amount of time and money, they will get to the data on the device. >> reporter: he says fbi was trying to set precedent by going public, taking apple to court. across the country, law enforcement has hundreds of cases where investigators desperately want access inside locked smart phones. apple says the company will continue to work with investigators but people around the world deserve data protection, security and
privacy. the fbi assistant director in charge david bowdich says i am satisfied that we have access to more answers than we had before. 's unclear what information, if any, will come from syed farook's iphone and whether the fbi will now tell apple how it hacked it, so the tech giant can make the rest of their devices more secure. miguel, nbc news, los angeles. a colorado state trooper was assisting at a snow crash when an suv flew past the officer nearly hitting him u. the vehicle swerved before continuing on. they posted the video as a warning to slow down in inclement weather. 19 million people are at ask of severe weather today. that's a crazy video. that frightens me. bill karins is here with your
