Just weeks from the Winter Olympics in Russia, a newly-surfaced video is causing security concerns. The video shows two men, believed to be the suicide attackers in last month's bombings on a Russian bus and train station.

NUMBER 1 - CHRISTIE CONTROVERSY DEEPENS
The controversy surrounding Governor Chris Christie gets deeper. Dawn Zimmer, the Democrat Mayor of Hoboken, New Jersey, says Christie's office threatened to keep super storm Sandy relief money from her town if she didn't support a redevelopment project by the Rockefeller group. "You have the Christie administration using their authority to try and get something. I don't know what they were trying to get on the "Bridgegate," but I do know they were trying to get in Hoboken. They were holding our Sandy funds hostage in order to get the push through and expedite the Rockefeller project," Zimmer said. Christie's camp denies the allegations and says Zimmer has a political ax to grind.
