7:10 am
that h, of course, that stands for hillically. the fbi's notes about their investigation on clinton's server released on friday. >> she said it was a mistake. >> reporter: clinton's running mate competed the line of defense this weekend after fbi notes showed that a clinton computer specialist deleted a trove of her e-mails last year after a congressional committee ordered they be the fbi notes also revealed that clinton told agents she couldn't recall seeing any briefing or training on how to handle classified information as secretary of state. when presented with a confidential e-mail with the marking c next to the top of a paragraph, she speculated it was marked in alphabetical order and she questioned the classification level. >> we look at so much material. unless it is specifically pulled
7:11 am
whether a statement or a paragraph is classified or not. >> reporter: in a tweet, trump went after clinton. lying hillary clinton told the fbi that she did not know the c markings on documents stood for classified. how can this be happening? the fbi also determined that clinton used up to 13 different devices to access her e-mail, including eight blackberries eduring her tenure. but agents could not examine them because her lawyers were unable to locate any of these devi pence. >> just more evidence that hillary clinton is the most dishonest candidate for president of the united states since richard nixon. >> reporter: the fbi notes indicated she wasn't the only secretary of state who was wary of their e-mails becoming public record. the 2009 e-mail colin powell told clinton, be very careful. i got around it all by not saying much and using systems that captured the data.
7:12 am
magazine last month when he said he only sent clinton a memo about a year into her tenure. as to that trump attack and that tweet where he said it shows that clinton clearly doesn't understand that c means classified, well, he got his facts wrong, too because the fbi director had said that that c stood for confidential, not classified e-mails. >> nancy, thank you. enjoy the new ride. donald trump supporters and opponents are still asking questions about the immig policy he tried to clear up last week. our battleground tracker shows 47% of voters believe trump's immigration plans are the same as they've been all along. 37% said they think trump is changing and getting easier towards illegal immigrants. major garret is in cleveland where trump will appear in a few hours. good morning, major. >> good morning. donald trump for the most part has accomplished what he sought ought to do by labor day. he made this race competitive. hillary clinton, of course, still leads.

7:14 am
trump's immigration speech calls it a muddle. >> it's kind of a 360 degree pivot at times. >> reporter: hillary clinton's campaign says immigrant families can see straight through her opponent's cynical ploys and that trump's message is clear. everyone must go. a recent cbs news poll shows more than 60% of voters believe both trump and clinton only talk about issues concerning minorities to gain suppt. african-american voters, trump traveled to detroit over the weekend. >> the african-american church has been the conscious of our country. >> reporter: as rudy giuliani defended trump's outreach to minority. >> for years people say republicans don't reach out to the african-american community. well, he reaching out to the african-american community. >> trump has climbed back into this race, but it's hillary
7:15 am
electoral map spending real money in arizona, a place democrats haven't won since bill clinton did in 1996 and before that, josh, we have to go back to 1948. >> major, thank you for that. meanwhile, chief national correspondent for "new york times" magazine and a cbs news political contributor good enough to join us now from washington. mark, good morning to you. we now know 13 different devices perhaps used by hillary clinton, the secretary of state. none recovered. some perhaps destroyed by a hammer. a la information gone missing. a candidate who said she may have been confused early and often about the whole thing. optically, how bad is this for the campaign? >> i think the whole thing is a big optical problem. it's a muddle. muddle seems to be the word of the day. i think people have not really bought her explanations from the very beginning here. i think unless you have video of hillary clinton taking a sledge hammer to her 13 devices, probably not that big of a deal.
7:16 am
dogged her from the very beginning. so, i think so much these stories just keep coming, they're going to be a problem for her. >> mark, you mention the distrust and that's what we're seeing in new polling even out. the majority think it's harder to believe her explanations and she's running for office for her own good and not to help the american people. sort of two-fold. can she get elected with numbers like that and what does it mean for her, if she does. >> certainly get elected with mb because her opponents numbers are worse. certainly, whoever wins in november going to face a very challenging landscape, not only politically, but because they're going to come in very, very damaged because if you see these numbers now and it won't improve much between now and november. obviously, this has been a tough campaign and the next couple months will be just as tough, if not worse. it will be a very, very sort of dicy thing to watch. look, neither of them, i think, will be surprised by this, but
7:17 am
trump's visit to a black church in detroit over the weekend. he said then we need a civil rights agenda for our time. is he really making a pitch for black americans and other minorities where he got historically bad numbers or is there another strategy here? >> i think the fact that he is there is significant and he will get credit for actually just sort of showing up in the black community at a black church which is not something you see, you typiy president doing at this stage of the campaign. especially at a time where the enthusiasm that that community has for hillary clinton, at this point, is very much, you know, it's an open question. we have a story today in "new york times" that there is some lack of enthusiasm for hillary clinton, certainly compared to the first african-american president barack obama. so, i think at the very least it's an opening for him.
7:18 am
credit for it, but did he accomplish anything in that in going to that church? >> probably not significantly? i think, obviously, not a big part of his winning coalition if he were to prevail in november. again, if you think purely in terms of optics and showing up, you know, this is something for him to, you know, at least point to and say that i'm trying to reach out to new constituencies. he said he is going to keep going back. we'll see. i think for now, i certainly t any way. >> mark, thanks, as always. mother teresa is now officially a saint. pope francis made the declaration yesterday in front of more than 100,000 people in st. peter's square. he described the revered nun as an offender of the unborn, sick and abandoned. people watched the canonization on big screens and others ga gathered around her tomb. one of the country's most

8:03 am
margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, china is tightly controlling this g20 summit and they placed lots of restrictions on the news media. and ironically that has made even small disagreements between the u.s. and china more public. every head of state visiting china for the g20 summit was greeted with pomp and circumstance. the moment their plane doors opened. but president obama's arrival as he stepped off air force one, the red carpeted stairs were missing. forcing president obama to use an alternate exit typically reserved for war zones. on the tarmac, a chinese minder tried to block u.s. press access, screaming at a white house aid, this is our country! this is our airport. then he yelled at national security adviser susan rice and tried to prevent her from entering the president's motorcade. the secret service had to

8:06 am
classified information as secretary of state. agents also wrote, clinton stated she did not know what the c meant at the beginning of paragraphs and speculated it was referencing paragraphs. the c stood for confidential. >> after seven week congressional recess lawmakers will return tomorrow to tackle stalemates and partisan fights put on hold if only for the summer. nancy pelosi good enough to join us here in studio 57. good morning to with that simple letter that c. again, secretary clinton told the fbi she didn't know it stood for confidential. how concerned, then, should voters be that a former senator, a former secretary of state didn't know what that c stood for? >> well, i think they shouldn't be that concerned. i think the secretary of state deals with a large number of issues, 30,000 e-mails we're talking about a few that may
8:07 am
classified is really secret and highly sensitive is where it becomes more problematic. but the fact is that whatever it was that hillary clinton dealt with in that manner had no threat to our security. and i think that too much is being made of this. hillary clinton is as talented and as informed and as knowledgeable a leader as we have seen in our country. i think much made of this and i say that as the top democrat on the intelligence committee for years, for years. this is really much ado about something but too much adieu. >> but she is nevertheless somebody that a majority of electorate simply said they do not trust. when she says on 39 separate occasions to the fbi that she cannot recall receiving any training with regard to
8:08 am
for confidential information, how believable is that? >> we're talking about at least 30,000 e-mails. you're talking about 1,000th of that. but you know what, this is a distraction from what we really should be talking about. congress is going into session tomorrow. we have so much unfinished business. in february the president asked congress for resources to fight a national health -- public health emergency, zee s not one cent has appropriated by congress. hopefully in this session of congress congress will honor its responsibilities to the american people. opioids, an issue that affects communities all over the country, we pass bills about it, but we don't allocate any resources to it. flint, michigan, for a very long time the children there have been suffering. we have not honored -- well, met the challenge to our
8:09 am
something that would have the votes if they would give us a vote. there's so much unfinished business that directly affects the lives of the american people. that's what we have to get on with. >> you mentioned zika. >> yes. >> the funding in that the last time it was the senate democrats that actually blocked it. what needs to happen to have a bipartisan agreement on zika funding. >> it wasn't the senate democrats that blocked it. it was the insistence on the part of the republicans that zika, which is a transmitted infection, whatever you want to call it. >> can be. >> can be -- is and that they're saying whatever we do we can't have any resources that go for contraception. it's ridiculous. first of all, second of all, the republicans were putting forth much less than the president asked for. so the fact is that for ideological reasons, whether
8:10 am
anti-contraception, anti-feal tissue research, anything that has to do with reproduction they have decided you cannot use any resources for family planning or contraception. >> but it feels like this is where people get frustrated with government. how do you get a compromise between the two parties? >> we offered them a compromise any number of times. so we're saying, come up with what h something. but don't say go use ebola funds. no, we need the ebola funds for ebola. we've taken the ebola funds. that's the only way we've been able to do any research and vector all the prevention and the rest is taking money from something else. but you have a situation -- just takes you to the difference between the democrats and republicans. republicans are there for the wealthiest people. trickle down economics.
8:11 am
and now you're going to balance the budget by not allocating resources to what we need. that's what the election is about is about how we invest in the american people. i always say to them, show me your values. show me your budget. if your budget is one that says tax cut for the wealthiest that will trickle down versus investment in the future our education, our infrastructure, in our goodlt american people, that's a debate that we have to have with the american people. and we should be focussing on these campaigns on issues that affect people in their lives. >> leader pelosi, let me ask you, let's go back to hillary clinton and her e-mails because that is something that a lot of people are talking about right now. the fbi report says a specialist used a program called bleach bit to delete an unknown number of e-mails after the house committee investigating the
8:12 am
produce those relevant e-mails. lot of people are saying that this is going to the perception that in some cases hillary clinton plays by her own rules and she is above the law in her mind. >> well, i don't subscribe to that, but i do agree with you that some people have that perception. but what we have to do is we leave the summer, labor day is here, it's time for the campaign to begin, what does this mean for the future of our country? we have a choice between two candidates. there's nothing that donald muslims or mexicans to use his words, that republicans in congress don't say all the time. so we have to simplify, what is the choice that the american people will have? not to get bogged down in some technicalities about whom -- about e-mails that have not had an impact on our national security. we're big on security.
8:13 am
smart and strong and tough. security for our economy that's about the middle class and not the wealthiest. and democracy. >> congresswoman pelosi, i thank you. we're out of time. people will be weighing in. 63 days until that general election. >> thank you. great campaign and american people have to be the winners. >> thank you. a new musical is generating oscar buzz even before it hits theaters. plus, recent news stories

the national park service is celebrating hits 100th birthday all year. so happy birthday again. one of its many protected animals, the bison, was recently designated by congress as america's first official mammal but not lopping ago, the iconic symbol of the american frontier nearly disappeared altogether from the landscape. mark strassmann went to yellowstone national park to see the remarkable comeback story of one truly wild herd. >> reporter: few places make you feel in this world like yellowstone. its timelessness spreads to the horizon. here is where the bear and the antelope play, but the bison dominates. you're looking at what may be the last free ranging pure bred herd of wild bison in america. >> look at the belly of bison.
8:44 am
you can get what this part of the country looked like in the early 1700s and early 1800s and it's a treasure. >> reporter: dna wenk is the superintendent at yellowstone national park. bison roam its 2.2 million acres, an area nearly as big as rhode island and delaware combined. but little about scale impresses america's largest land animal. a mature bison bull stands six feet tall and can weigh more than a ton. >> that is formidable. not being fullbacks like to approach that line. >> reporter: so imposing, yet, they almost disappeared. how dire did it get? >> in yellowstone national park there were less than 25 animals. it is one of the greatest wildlife conservation stories in the history of the united states. >> reporter: here is where this conservation comeback is so remarkable. in the 1800s, as many as 60 million bison were hunted nearly

side of how the west was won. the american bison, the symbol of the great plains, once roamed from nevada to mississippi. but in the 1800s, pioneers pushed west. bison were in the way. tens of millions were killed by cattle ranchers, homesteaders and u.s. troops and sport hunters shot bison from moving trains. as the animals disappeared, so d who, for centuries, had relied on bison for food, clothing, shelter, and tools. >> we don't call them bison. we call them buffalo. >> reporter: because? >> we think of them as bison as a white man term. >> reporter: montana rancher irvin carlson blonelongs to the black feet tribe and represents 60 tribes who believe bison have
8:46 am
tribes. we survived on them. they took care of us. >> reporter: what was the great buffalo slaughter really all about to you? >> if you got rid of the buffalo, consequently, you get rid of the enemy. >> reporter: by 1883, nearly all bison were gone. congress even sent soldiers to yellowstone to protect the final survivors from porchers. conservists including president teddy roosevelt, intervened to protect and restore the population. roughly 5,000 bison live at yellowstone today. this comeback story, how improbable was it? >> it was really the first effort to restore what could have been an endangered species. >> reporter: rick wollan the park's chief biologist oversees a unique herd. >> you can't see this kind of abundance anywhere else. >> reporter: most of america's roughly 500,000 bison today are managed as domestic livestock

cattle, not yellowstone's herd. >> yellowstone bison truly represent the ecological and drive the species. about as good as it gets. >> reporter: nearby ranchers have killed them thinking they spread a diseasemf inside the park is grazing limits. every year the herd has to be reduced by about 10%. several hundred get sent for processing to tribes which distribute the hides and meat. when you see these guys, make you feel good? >> it does. >> reporter: the current approach seems to satisfy no one, including irvin carlson, who also belongs to the bison management coalition. he says these animals should
