5:31 pm
this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: he is 70, she turns 69 next month, and if you add it up, donald trump and hillary clinton are the the oldest presidential election match-up in u.s. history. well, today, they revealed results from their latest checkups. clinton put out a lot of of detail but we didn't learn as much about trump. we have three reports tonight. first we'll go to nancy cordes on clinton. nancy. >> reporter: scott, we got a two-pa doctor, and in it she says she has examined the candidate several times since the weekend, and that she is recovering nicely from a mild, noncontagious bacterial pneumonia. overall, she says clinton is still fit to serve as president. the doctor's letter reveals that clinton first developed a low-grade fever, congestion, and fatigue, nearly two weeks ago. she was put on a short course of antibiotics and advised to rest.
5:32 pm
>> reporter: she didn't, and by last monday, clinton's congestion had worsened, and she developed a cough. >> got some water? >> yup. >> reporter: last friday, a ct scan revealed a small, middle lobe pneumonia. she was put on a 10-day course of the antibiotic levaquin, on top of the armor thyroid she already takes to treat her hypothyroidism, and coumadin, a blood thinner she began taking after developing a blood clot several years ago. her heart rate is 70, which, to doctors say is normal. the letter does reveal that clinton had a medical procedure earlier this year. she had a tube placed in her ear to alleviate symptoms related to sinusitis and an ear infection. scott, her doctor says a subsequent ct scan of clinton's brain revealed no abnormalities. >> pelley: nancy cordes in chab qua, new york. thank you, nancy.
5:33 pm
major. >> reporter: scott, donald trump stunned his senior staff when he handed over medical records today during a taping of the dr. oz television show, the show, with details of some of the donald trump's medical records is scheduled to air tomorrow. >> if your health is as strong as it seems from your review of is systems, why not share your medical records? >> well,y valley no problem doing it. i have it right here. should i do? i tonight care. >> reporter: scott and campaign-related weight gain. the two discussed details of trump's physical last week, though the campaign declined to release data trump shared with dr. oz. here is what trump's campaign manager, kellyanne conway, said this morning about medical records when asked if they would be released on dr. oz. >> on a tv show? i don't think that he should. no, he was going to talk about the fact that he had a physical and what the the results are or what the doctor may have told him to date.
5:34 pm
letter saying he would be, "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency." the trump campaign has declined to release the information that trump handed over to dr. oz, but that campaign which, scott, today, clearly had its wires crossed, has led us to believe that information will be available for public scrutiny some time this week. >> pelley: major garrett, thanks very much. dr. tara narula is a cbs news medical contributor. dr., you're a cardiologist. what did you see in hillary clinton's report today? is very important, so we don't have to speculate, and we learned a lot of other things about her health. we learned she's had normal blood work, including an inr, which is the measure of how thin the blood simportant for somebody who is on coumadin, a blood thinner, and those levels have been regularly checked. she's up to date on her vaccination. she's had a normal mammogram. she had a calcium score that was zero, a cardiac calcium score. that tells us her risk of
5:35 pm
low. she had a well-controlled lipid or cholesterol level. and her cat scan of her brains normal. hypothyroidism is a very normal disorder, affecting millions of americans, over 10% of women, especially women over 60. basically it means you have an underactive thyroid gland. >> pelley: and for trump 6'2", and 236 pounds, he is technically obese. >> fist his tell him to drop his weight about 35 pounds. >> pelley: former secretary of state colin powell took a healthy swing at both candidates in e-mails that were stolen and posted by a web site called can dcleaks. we don't know who hacked powell's gmail account, but here, again, is nancy cordes. >> reporter: they are making a mistake trying to drag me in. that was one of several e-mails
5:36 pm
likening her e-mail use to his. >> my predecessors did the same thing. >> reporter: he told a friend last month, "i told her staff three times not to try that gambit." adding, "sad thing is clinton could have killed this two years ago by merely telling everyone honestly what she had done." powell's hacked e-mails reveal a complicated relationship with. on one hand he called her "a friend i respect." on the other he said, "everything clintono kind of screws up with hubris." his comments about donald trump were even more scathing. "trump is a national disgrace and an international pariah," he wrote in june. and last month, he said trump "is at 1% with black voters and will drop. he takes us for idiots. he can never overcome what he did to obama with the search for the birth certificate." a powell aide confirmed today that powell did write those e-mails, but beyond that, had no comment.
5:37 pm
>> pelley: nancy, thanks again. after three days off the campaign trail, clinton will resume tomorrow. today, trump was in the battleground state of michigan, and we'll go back to major garrett. >> hillary failed. >> reporter: donald trump faltered when he attacked hillary clinton while appearing at an african american church. for months, that church has dispensed bottled water to residents avoiding toxic levels of lead in flint's water supply. >> everything she touched now hillary clinton-- >> mr. trump, i invited you here to thank us for-- >> oh, oh, okay. >> not to give a political speech. >> okay, that's good. then i'm going to go back on to flint, okay. ( applause ) okay. flint's-- flint's pain is a result of so many different failures. >> reporter: another complication today for trump, new york's attorney general eric snyder man opened an inquiry into the donald j. trump
5:38 pm
improperly misused contributions of others for his own personal gain? mao, scott, snyderman, it's worth pointing out, has endorsed clinton and the campaign has dismissed this as a partisan attack. snyderman has already sued trump once, alleging fraud at trump university. >> pelley: major, thanks again. a moment ago we reported on the colin powell e-mail hack. well, today, the director of the c.i.a. told us that russian hackers have been breaking in to u.s. political web sites for john brennan spoke to jeff pegues today. jeff what, did he say? >> reporter: scott, cbs news was granted rare access to the director this week. among topics we discussed the cyber attacks on election commitez. he did not specifically blame russia but he did point to russia's history of election meddling in other countries. he also told us he expects more breached information to be released by hackers. do you expect more cyber
5:39 pm
the election? >> well, i certainly wouldn't be surprised if we see it coming out. i think there are capabilitieses that a number of our adversaries have. i'm not just talking about nation states or other countries. i'm talking about individuals who may want to demonstrate they are able to hack into systems and release things for whatever their agenda might be, whether it be a political agenda or one just trying to undermine our sufficiency democracy here. >> reporter: while brennan did not specifically bla r scott, multiple law enforcement sources tell us the evidence they are seeing points to russia behind these attacks at some level. >> pelley: jeff pegues with the interview for us tonight. jeff, thank you. well, despite these hacks, the u.s. and russia are cooperating on syria. today, the cease-fire worked out by both gave us a rare look at the remains of aleppo, syria's largest city. with no bombs falling fair
5:40 pm
but 275,000 residents are in dire new year's day food and medicine. elizabeth palmer is there. >> reporter: here's the sound of a cease-fire working. ( no audio ) for the second evening in a row, aleppo was largely quiet. and monitors confirmed they've recorded no deaths anywhere in syria in the past 48 hours. what a contrast to last when russian and syrian planes were dropping bombs on rebel-held aleppo. we drove into the the government side of the city today through suburbs shattered by fighting. and heard the occasional rumble of artillery in the distance. this cease-fire is not perfect. but it is good enough that we found repair crews already out on the job tackling huge task of restoring power.
5:41 pm
divided city, the playgrounds were full of kids just being kids. the turkish government sent a couch aid trucks a short distance into syria, but there's been nothing like this where it's most needed, in rebel-held aleppo, where there were demonstrations today. opposition fighters and some local people making the point that they don't want aid they want the siege of their neighborhoods lifted. the united nations does have the first aid convoys all ready to roll, scott, and there is now a plan in the works supported by the u.s. and russia on have all the armed parties, including the syrian army, pull back from the main highway into aleppo to let the trucks through. >> pelley: our elizabeth palmer with rare reporting from aleppo. thanks, liz. super typhoon meranti, the most powerful storm anywhere in 2016

5:47 pm
>> reporter: chief eric mendez. you'd think the stop sign would be hard to miss. >> well, you would think that the big 30-foot-long, bright-yellow school bus would be hard to mis. >> that's probably 150 to 100 right there. >> reporter: in four months they sent citations to 6600 motorists. >> that's a lot of violators in a very short time period. >> reporter: those citations generated almost $2 million in fines. but texas state senator don huffines would rather invest in safety features systems have adopted, like these six-foot extenders that block traffic from passing buses. >> we need to be focused on what actually works to prevent the accidents before they occur. >> reporter: austin school officials hoped publicizing these cameras would be a safety alert, but in the first week of this new school year, scott, these cameras recorded another 900 drivers going past buses that were letting kids on and off. >> pelley: mark strassmann,
