8:01 am
knee-jerk stuff. [ laughter ] >> this morning, the battle already brewing over the chance to tilt the balance of the nation's highest court. president obama ready to nominate a replacement, the senate's majority leader saying -- not so fast. and the republican candidates also weighing in overnight at a raucous debate. >> i think we ought to let the next president of the united states decide. >> it's called delay, delay, delay. >> our team coverage as we remember this giant of the court. and good morning, everybody. americans are waking up to a huge story this morning. the passing of justice scalia. he's being remembered for his brilliant legal mind and fiery style on the bench. and abc news chief anchor george stephanopoulos joins us on this day. of "this week" later this
8:02 am
justice scalia, such a towering figure. one of the court's most powerful pens. a pillar of the conservative moment. right at the center of this election. sends the the stakes through the roof. the court divided right down the middle. if the democrats or president obama choose the replacement, if the republicans do, it's a conservative court. >> it affects all levels of government. rare situation. here in studio. as we look at the man and his three-decade legacy, you're looking at a live picture outside the supreme court. where flags are flying at half of the country. our team coverage begins with jim avila in shafter, texas. >> reporter: good morning, paula paula. justice scalia had at least two passions in life. he loved the law and he loved to
8:03 am
west texas and the open spaces at a ranch resort owned by a texas billionaire to shoot some quail. he never made it out on the range. this morning, the body of supreme court justice antonin scalia arriving in el paso. officials telling abc news the 79-year-old legal icon died saturday in his sleep from apparent natural causes. >> antonin "nino" scalia was a larger than life presence on the bench. a brilliant legal mind. with an energetic style. incisive wit. and colorful opinions. >> reporter: he was on a hunting krip at cibolo creek ranch in texas. he persuaded elena kagan to shoot skeet. law enforcement sources saying he left dinner early and went to his room, feeling ill. when he didn't arrive to breakfast saturday morning, a person associated with the ranch went to check on him. he was found in his room, unresponsive. the catholic diocese of el paso
8:04 am
the ranch. a hearse then carrying his body towards el paso. condolences pouring in from former presidents, current candidates, and government officials. house speaker paul ryan saying i, learned so much from this man. i knew him. i respected him. i looked up to him. we all did. at this point, no autopsy has been performed. in fact, a local justice of the peace pronounced the justice dead over the phone and then pcame out to the ranch to say there was no foul play involved and turned the body over to federal marshals. the fbi is also investigating. george? >> okay, jim. thank you. justice scalia's opinions are legendary. sharp, elegant, funny, and sarcastic. he was a hero to conservatives. inspired a generation of legal thought. abc's terry moran has covered his tenure for so long. he joins us from mexico city. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, george. the supreme court had never seen anything like antonin scalia.
8:05 am
he was a high-voltage intellectual. who developed this great theory about the constitution and the law and the proper role of judges in our system. through the force of his intellect. his flair as a writer and his appetite for argument, he made those ideas count in the country. and in the court. and he did it all laughing. he was a happy warrior. i've been thinking, it's just impossible to imagine that great courtroom without him in it. >> i, antonin scalia do solemnly swear. >> i antonin scalia do solemnly swear. >> reporter: justice antonin scalia was an american original. a towering icon of conservative juris prudence. a man who loved his life in the law. >> i like figuring out the right answer to legal questions, believe it or not. >> reporter: nino scalia, as he was known to friends, served three decades on the supreme court. and in those year, he became a
8:06 am
he was a justice who did more than hand down rulings. he wanted to change the law itself and the court. through his spirited and forceful advocacy of what he called textualism. his strict interpretation of the constitution. he was unafraid to take a stand and seemingly incapable of backing down. famously lashing out at critics of his finding in the 2000 bush versus gore election dispute. >> i and my court owe no apology whatever for bush versus gore. we did the right thing so -- so there. get over it, it's so old by now. >> reporter: it was that brashness which cemented the court's first italian american justice in the public's mind. a vivid writer, his opinions became famous for their caustic, take no prisoners style. he called the majority's reasoning in a 2013 defense of marriage act case legalistic argle-bargle. and slammed the court's decision on the affordable care act as jiggery-pokery.
8:07 am
that is gobbledygook. >> reporter: in cases big and small, his wit lashed out in legal arguments. he loved to get a laugh. >> okay, you can't refuse your money or your life. but your life or your wife's? i could refuse that one. >> reporter: but his quick tongue landed him in trouble at times. in 2015, scalia's comments about affirmative action drew protests. >> you know, when you take more, the number of blacks really competent blacks admitted to lesser schools, turns out to be less. >> reporter: but his friends and his colleagues say behind the combative mind and fiery words was a warm man and a close friend. forging an unlikely bond with liberal justice ruth bader ginsburg. fellow new yorkers candid about their friendship, despite views. we do. ruth is really bad only on the knee-jerk stuff. [ laughter ] she is -- >> reporter: antonin scalia grew up in queens, new york. attending xavier high school in manhattan before georgetown and
8:08 am
his wife maureen. >> maureen is an extraordinary woman. without whom i wouldn't be here. >> reporter: his wife and his family, they built together, as much a part of his life and legacy as the court and country he served. that seat on the supreme court, something he always cherished. many times dodging questions about stepping down, saying there was only one thing that could make him walk away. >> i will certainly retire at the time where i perceive that i am not as good as i used to be. that i've -- i've lost a step. >> reporter: for many, he never did. love him or loathe him, and americans did both, he was the kind of man to inspire those feelings. scalia must be counted as one of the most important supreme court justices in american history. >> and terry, when you go back
8:09 am
the most sweeping victory? and the most searing defeat? >> reporter: you know, probably his biggest victory was on the second amendment. wrote the opinion that held that individual right. the right to bear arms. that was in keeping with his government's power should be limited. some things are left to states, localities, and citizens. his biggest defeat, without question, abortion. he desperately wanted to overturn roe versus wade. he was never able to. >> okay, terry moran, thanks very much. the battle now to who comes next. it's monumental. president obama says he'll make a successor. the senate says they won't let it happen. the battle lines drawn immediately. >> reporter: even before immediately, if that's possible, george. because ted cruz put out a statement that said the next
8:10 am
replaces scalia before the supreme court officially confirmed that scalia was dead. mitch mcconnell put out a statement saying much the same thing, less than an hour after the court made the statement. these battle lines were drawn immediately. and in the debate last night, with the republican presidential candidates, all six of them agreed, saying that there is no way that barack obama should be allowed to name the replacement for justice scalia. president obama has made it perfectly clear he intends to move forward. the top of the list is sri srinivasan. he's someone the republicans like quite a bit. he's a former clerk to justice sandra day o'connor. in his current post on the d.c. court of appeals, he was con foirmed 97-0.
8:11 am
>> this debate has just begun. >> it has. let's bring in abc news chief legal analyst dan abrams. good morning. >> good morning. >> a lot of names being floated as potential nominees by the president. these are people that have been confirmed by the united states senate. your argument is that this is different. >> there's a short list. a lot of them are court of appeals judges. who have gone through this process. they've gone to the senate. they've been confirmed. some people will say, wait a second. this person or that person was confirmed with relatively little opposition. the rules are different. everything has changed now. two reasons. number one, the presidential campaign. number two you're talking about justice scalia. justice scalia's memory for conservatives is so important that this time, anything that happened in the past is not particularly relevant to what is going to happen now. point being, it's going to be nearly impossible for president
8:12 am
almost anyone who has been on his short list. >> how does the court function with only eight justices? can they actually move forward on a lot of the cases in front of them, including cases on the union and abortion? decisions. the court often divided 5-4. some of the opinions, you'll now see 4-4. the lower court opinion gets effectively confirmed. so whatever the lower court decided previously stands. but, the supreme court then is not setting any precedent. meaning you can't cite that opinion in the future to say, a-ha, but the supreme court previously ruled x, y, or z. it remains effectively a local decision confirmed without a definitive opinion from the supreme court. the possibility of creating quite a mess for the court system. >> is there a precedent for the court having to muddle
8:13 am
>> yeah. justices do recuse themselves in certain cases. they say, for example, relatively new to the court. i was involved in that case as a solicitor general or some other way. so i can't be involved. the supreme court does sometimes have 4 to 4 rulings. it's rare. the idea that you're talking a year, 18 months, of 4-4 decisions by a divided court is completely unprecedented. >> thank you, dan. >> he served for 30 years on the supreme court. some are calling him the most influential justice in recent memory. so for more on his legal legacy, we want to bring in veteran washington observer, cokie roberts, who join us us in pawley's island, south carolina. thank you for joining us this morning. >> hi, paula. good to be with you. >> first and foremost, how do you think justice scalia would want to be remembered? he had a legacy of being a constitutional purist.
8:14 am
he would like to be remembered. as someone who cared desperately about the constitution and followed it to the letter by his lights. and did it with great intellect and some humor and sometimes, scathingly. and, in ways that really could take down the lawyers in the case or his colleagues on the court. remarkably, given all that, he was incredibly well liked. all right, cokie. thank you. i know you were up late for the debate last night. thank you for joining us early this morning. both. scalia news played a prominent role in the debate overnight. >> right after the moment of silence for justice scalia. incredibly feisty. i don't think i have heard the word liar used so much in a single debate. let's go to tom llamas for more. >> reporter: that came from donald trump.
8:15 am
some of his biggest battles yet exploding on the debate stage. it shows you how many of the gop candidates want to put an end to the trump campaign. that wild gop debate started peaceful and respectful. the passing of antonin scalia fresh on the minds of the six remaining candidates. all agreeing that president obama shouldn't be the one to fill scalia's spot on the court. >> he would ram down our throat a liberal justice. >> we're not going to give up the u.s. supreme court for a generation by allowing barack obama to make one more liberal appointee. >> reporter: then the real fight started. >> jeb is so wrong. jeb is absolutely so -- [ crowd booing ] >> reporter: donald trump booed loudly by the crowd during an openish -- epic clash with jeb bush about the bush family legacy. >> while donald trump was building a reality tv show, my
8:16 am
and i'm proud of what he did. and he's had the gall to go after -- >> the world trade center came down -- >> reporter: and in a rare move, marco rubio coming to jeb's defense. >> the world trade center came down because bill clinton didn't kill osama bin laden when he had the chance to kill him. >> reporter: trump tangling with ted cruz, accusing him of running robocalls telling voters the front-runner wouldn't be on the ballot in south carolina. >> that's a matter of principle. >> you're the single biggest liar. you're probably worse than jeb bush. you are the single biggest liar. this guy lied. let me tell you. he lied about ben carson when he took votes away from ben carson in iowa. and he just continues. >> reporter: dr. ben carson, refusing to join in on the exchanges. >> is that really what you want? what we just saw? i don't think so. >> reporter: and john kasich predicting who will ultimately gain from these brutal attacks. >> i think we're fixing to lose the election to hillary clinton if we don't stop this.
8:17 am
next saturday. this next week may be the most important for jeb bush. he's looking to revive his campaign. he'll get help from president george w. bush tomorrow on the trail. he'll likely face opposition from trump. who all week, not only does not ferkt, he does not forgive. a telling moment yesterday, george. jeb bush and donald trump didn't shake hands yesterday. >> they wept -- went at it so fiercely last night. last night, donald trump really for the first time in a debate, getting it from jeb bush and all sides. >> senator ted cruz, marco rubio. he was man on an island last night. a lot of conservative writers think last night republicans were trying to take trump out. >> thank you, tom llamas. >> he was getting it from the audience, too. the gloves came off and for more on the debate, we want to bring in abc news analyst matt dowd for his take. matt, first of all, as we just said, things got extremely ugly. there was a whole lot of name-calling. are the attacks helping the candidates?
8:18 am
damage to the gop brand? >> demolition derby is entertaining to watch. but after the derby is over, every car is damaged. i think republicans are fast approaching a time of how personal and how visceral and how much name-calling there is that this is not going to do anybody any good in the course of this. they all may survive. but over time, it's not going to be a benefit going into a general election. >> and matt, south carolina has the history of picking the nominee. last time was the exception. trump taking a chance last night by going after the bush family which is, you know, that family is loved in that state. >> well, as you know, george w. bush won the state after losing badly in new hampshire in 2000. that was basically his comeback. it put him back on the path to win the general election. they're well-loved there. what would be interesting to me. donald trump attacked george w. bush last night. he attacked lindsey graham, a u.s. senator from south carolina. he got booed by the audience. if donald trump wins south
8:19 am
it's very difficult to stop him. if he's able to win south carolina in the midst of all that. >> right. but this is a guy who has shown over and over again that the normal rules of politics don't apply to him. that said, is there anybody you think came out well last night? jeb bush? marco rubio? kasich? >> well, i think, to me, i had two sort of folks that i thought were winners in the course of it. i think john kasich did. he sort of tried to stay out of the fight. tried to stay above it all. and i think he's gotten a lift from his second place finish in new hampshire. i thought he did well. i thought marco rubio, after his last awful debate performance, where he got attacked by chris christie, i thought he came back and did well. i thought jeb did fine. if i were picking two people i thought won, it would be john kasich and marco rubio. >> thank you, matt.
8:20 am
has a big show this morning on "this week ts" with guests marco rubio and john kasich. and on the democratic side texas big winner in the new hampshire primary, bernie sanders. great to have you in studio. a huge story. >> everybody wanted to come on overnight. donald trump is going to join us. ted cruz is going to join us. this issue is so huge. all the candidates want to weigh in. >> it's an interesting time. george, thank you. go get ready for the show. have a great one. thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. >> sure. we want to turn to the dangerous cold in much of america. and indra petersons is on the story from a frigid central park. good morning to you. >> good morning, you know, since i cover weather a lot, i like to think i'm tougher than you guys. but when it's this cold, it's game over.
8:21 am
right now, central park, you can >> the takeaway? stay indoors today. by tomorrow, things should quickly recover. paula? dan? >> all right, indra. stay warm. coming up on "gma," bus on fire. the middle schoolers sent rushing for the exits. when they saw these flames. what happened next? >> a scary situation. on a happier note, the nba's
8:22 am
