Police Recordings Reveal Montana Newlywed's Lies

In a dramatic turn during her murder trial, newlywed Jordan Linn Graham pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in a plea deal and recounted how she pushed her new husband over a Montana cliff last summer.

"It was a reckless act," she told the judge who demanded the truth of what happened to Cody Johnson, her husband of eight days, in Glacier National Park in July.

"I just pushed," she stated.

The newlywed couple was arguing when he grabbed her and she told him, "Let go."

She thought he was going to hold her down. She put one hand on his back and another on his shoulder and then pushed him face-first to his death, she told the court.

And now, police recordings from two days after the man disappeared show just how her story changed.

Police: What's going on as far as where he might have gone or who he might be with?

Jordan: Well, I got a message that he was going to go for a ride with some of his out of town buddies that were visiting.

The next day, in an interview with detectives, she stood by her story but also said she got an email from someone named Tony who told her Cody was dead.

The email was traced back to a computer in Graham's parents' house. She sent it to herself.

Another Resignation Comes in Christie Administration Over Bridge Scandal

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie announced Friday the resignation of New Jersey's top Port Authority official Bill Baroni, as controversy swirls regarding allegations that politics played a role in a traffic study that closed several access lanes to the George Washington Bridge–one of the busiest in the world–in September.

Christie said Baroni accepted responsibility for not following the right protocols in approving the traffic study, which was led by a political appointee of Christie, David Wildstein. The lane closures caused major traffic delays on the bridge, which runs from Fort Lee, New Jersey, to New York City, and is part of Interstate 95.

"New York Times" reporter Kate Zernike weighed in on the controversy on "New Day" Monday and said she doesn't think it's over.

"We're going to see continued hearings on this and look, it's just a great story for reporters, so I think we're gonna all keep it alive as long as we can."

Reiner: 'Wolf of Wall Street' is Funny

Director and actor Rob Reiner is back on the big screen starring in Martin Scorsese's new film, "The Wolf of Wall Street" playing Leonardo DiCaprio's father.

Reiner spoke about his role in the movie on "New Day" Monday saying "It's a true story, everything that happened in the film actually happened to Jordan Belfort and he spoke openly about it. And as a father, playing a father, it's like watching your kid run into the street and he's about to get hit by a car and you can't pull him out."

When asked about the length of the movie, at almost three hours, Reiner replied "But it works. I was surprised at how funny it is. I mean, I knew it was going to be funny, but it is really funny. There's a scene where Leo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill take quaaludes together  that I put up with any block comedy scene I've ever seen in a movie. It's as funny a physical comedy scene as I've ever seen."
