7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." as you wake up in the west searches in the mediterranean finding what appears to be the first debris from egyptair flight 804. the airbus a-320 with 66 people aboard from paris to cairo. it went down this morning off the coast of egypt. officials said debris was found 230 miles south of the greek isle of crete. >> the plane swerved violently and plunged before it fell off radar. cbs news aviation and captain sully sullenberger standing by. first mark phillip at charles de gaulle airport outside of paris. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, the ritual of tragedy i'm afraid is being repeated again in paris and cairo. this crash, as we know now, has
7:04 am
taken place and egyptian ministry of aviation said the most likely cause is, in fact, terrorism. the bulk of the victims are egyptian and french. egyptair 804 left on time and regular route through the mediterranean, egypt and cairo. it last checked in with air traffic control while cruising at 37,000 feet in greek airspace. but as the plane was about to enter the egyptian controlled area over the mediterranean, radar images showed the plane went into a series of violent turns. first 90 degrees one way, then a full 360 degree circle the other while dropping precipitously. there was no further contact and the plane disappeared from the radar screen. egyptair said an emergency signal may have been sent from a beacon on board the plane. there were no weather issues at
7:05 am
the time. of the 66 people on board a-320, "among the missing three children, two infants. both pilots were very experienced with more than 9,000 flying hours between them. as families gathered in paris and cairo, a search had begun by air and by sea. some debris has reportedly been seen. ultimately hoped plane's flight data recorders, if found on the seabed, may provide clues to what caused this crash. if it was a bomb, it could have been planted not just in paris but turkey or tunisia where the plane had recently been. transportation safety analyst and chairman of the ntsb -- >> anything and everything is possible here. it could be a catastrophic accident. it could be a terrorism event. >> reporter: the first suspicion in these cases is always
7:06 am
terrorism in these times, and that suspicion is apparently shared both in paris and in cairo. the search is now under way for debris and especially for the flight data recorders, the black boxes, which above all will tell us exactly what happened. charlie. >> thanks, mark. mark phillips outside paris. captain sully sullenberger cbs news aviation and safety expert joins us from reno, nevada. sully, good morning. >> good morning again. >> take into account what egyptian minister said, the possibility of a terror attack as a cause is stronger than technical failure. what do we know that would lead him to say that. >> i wonder what he knows that would lead him to say that. absent information he has t we don't, it seems like every possibility should be on the table. it would only be after evidence is found that investigators would begin to narrow their focus. they will be looking at when
7:07 am
more airplane debris is found and specifically identified to be part of this airplane or when the recorders are found and analyzed we'll begin to answer all the many questions that are in this case. investigators have a lot of tools. one of the things they can do when they find the airplane is see if there's soot on it, expanded with a fire or torn apart for some other reason. they will see if it reached the surface intact organ to come apart in the air. >> the thing frightening, a series of violent turns. i can only think about those poor passengers sitting in their seats realizing the plane is going this way and that way very violently. what can cause that if it isn't somebody at the controls? anything else in your mind that can explain that? you know this plane very well. >> i do. there are a number of things that might cause what seems to have been a lack of control or loss of control.
7:08 am
there might have been a catastrophic event. there might have been a sudden emergency. again, at this point it's hard to know what might have caused these turns. it's also important to know depending on what type of radar was observing these maneuver, sometimes the update rates are only as slow as every five seconds. some more regional radars might update more often than that. these would be a series of snapshots of where the plane was at a certain number of seconds and not a continuous tape of exactly everything -- every movement made. so that coupled with the recorders would be a real important clue about what happened to this airplane and caused it to go off course. >> egyptair has had some safety and security concerns in the past. what do you make of that? >> you know, the international aviation authorities do audits for all the world's airlines.
7:09 am
egyptair in the last audit rated above average in a few areas but below average in most areas of their entire aviation organization and procedures. so they have had have issues in the past. we'll be interested to see when the investigation is more complete, as they look at all these factors, what areas need improvement the most. >> thank you, captain sully sullenberger. as you point out so early in the investigation, there's still a lot of questions that need to be answered. thank you, sir, for joining us this morning. >> good to be with you. >> thank you. flight 804 just entered egyptian airspace when it vanished. earlier this year man with fake explosives hijacked egyptair flight to cypress. no one was hurt. an explosion brought down a russian jetliner over sinai peninsula after it took off from the egyptian airport. 224 people were killed there. isis claimed responsibility for that one. jeff pegues is in washington with concerns about egypt's aviation safety.
7:10 am
jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. u.s. law enforcement sources say fbi will offer assistance to investigators in this incident. its evidence response teams are among the best on the planet. while details are still unclear, the reality is egypt and its flag carrier, egyptair have had a checkered air travel safety record. the two most recent incidents in particular have called the country's transportation security into question. when egyptair 181 was hijacked in march, many assumed the motive of mustafa was terrorism. claiming to be wearing an explosive vest, the 59-year-old demanded domestic cairo-bound flight divert. on the tarmac, it was discovered his interests were personal. he was arrested and no one was hurt. it renewed safety concerns following the crash of a metro jet flight in okay. the russian passenger plane disintegrated over sinai desert
7:11 am
after reporting from sharm el sheikh en route to st. petersburg. all 250 on board were killed. isis soon claimed responsibility for the apparent bomb attack. in 1985, one of the deadliest hijackings in history was on egyptair flight 648 after departing athens for cairo, heavily armed terrorists describing themselves as egypt's revolution forced the plane to land in malta. on the ground egyptian troops raided the aircraft in a move that has since been criticized. at least 58 people on board were killed. fourteen years later egyptair flight 990 crashed off the coast of nantucket shortly after taking off from new york. all 217 people on board died. national transportation safety board indicated the pilot brought down the plane intentionally, something egyptian authorities disputed, instead claiming mechanical
7:12 am
error. egypt says it will investigate the cause of last night's incident and will be joined by french authorities and the plane's manufacturer airbus. there is likely an examination of air safety at airports. norah. >> jeff, thank you so much. we'll continue to bring you updates. coverage continues all day on 24 hour streaming network. now to the presidential race and growing anger between bernie sanders and democratic party leaders. sanders campaign accuses the party chairwoman of favoritism towards hillary clinton. both sides say the other is lying about a disputed nevada convention that ended in chaos. nancy cordes looked how powerful democrats are putting pressure on sanders but he is not backing down. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. sanders told cbs news he is furious that democratic officials would accuse him and his campaign of promoting violen violence. now they are backing off. they are worried about protests
7:13 am
but know a protracted conflict with the candidate may encourage more unrest. >> that is a lie, an outrage. >> reporter: sanders says party leaders should be ashamed for claiming he encouraged supporters to disrupt the nevada party convention. because they were upset about the rules. >> i condemn all forms of violence and personal harassment. but i also condemn democratic leadership in any way, that is what our campaign is about, that we're tinged with violence, we're going to take violence to the democratic national committee. >> reporter: he got some back-up from vice president joe biden who was asked about the incident on a trip to ohio. >> that's not bernie. what bernie is going to have to do if that happens again, he's going to have to be more aggressive speaking out about it. >> reporter: sanders has gotten the same message from several other senate colleagues. >> the crowd was out of control. >> including senator barbara
7:14 am
boxer who got caught in the chaos. >> when you boo me, you're booing bernie sanders. go ahead. >> reporter: do you think he's done enough to make sure it doesn't happen again? >> i hope behind the scenes he's telling people to be respectful. >> reporter: some of the 1968 democratic convention when vietnam war demonstrators erupted into the streets of chicago after the nomination of hubert humphrey. >> i don't want to go back to the '68 convention, because i worry about what it does to the electorate as a whole and he should, too. >> some sanders supporters have begun posting plans to occupy dnc convention in july, something the party share is eager to prevent. >> everybody needs to take a step back and a deep breath. we have to make sure we can do everything we can to maximize the likelihood of being unified. >> she initially called sanders reaction to nevada completely inadequate and said he put fuel
7:15 am
on the fire. but now she says she is ready to turn the page. sanders has accepted an invitation from fox to debate clinton in california, but, gayle, dnc officials tell us the debate and its host are still being negotiated. there's no guarantee it will happen at all. >> thank you, nancy. a new poll finds donald trump is leading hillary clinton by three points in a november election matchup. the same poll last month showed hillary clinton with a seven-point lead. major garrett looks at trump targeting both clinton while reaching out to other republicans. major, good morning. >> good morning. connecting the dots in trump's daily campaign activities can be, well, a challenge. foreign policy tutoring with henry kissinger, the release of the list of conservatives trump might put on the supreme court, followed by yet another social media sizzler about bill clinton's sordid past. >> if hillary clinton for some reason wins, your country will never be the same. >> reporter: in an interview
7:16 am
wednesday donald trump previewed a potential general election attack rehashing accusations made against former president bill clinton. >> in one case it's about exposure. in another case about groping and fondling and touching against a woman's will. >> and rape. >> and rape. >> and settlements. >> reporter: known for being an attack dog, trump is trying to change the perception his policies are not conservative enough. >> i have a lot of people that are conservative that really like me and love everything i stand for. >> reporter: as part of that effort trump released names of 11 supreme court candidates he said were in the mold of late conservative icon justice antonin scalia. >> what i thought i would do is put this forward. this would be the list i would choose from or pick people very close. >> reporter: one person on the list texas don willett, mocked presumptive nominee on twitter, even floating idea trump might be a liberal in disguise and would rip off his face and
7:17 am
reveal a laughing ruth bader ginsberg. met henry kissinger seeking foreign policy advice. but republicans like senator jeff flake aren't convinced trump's policies will stay consistent. >> it's a good sign he's sitting down with foreign policy experts, whether that will stick or have the same position as now, we don't onknow. >> reporter: after much internal debate he picked famous and infamous for leading the effort to put sarah palin on the ticket in 2008. >> major garrett, thank you so much. news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is here. john, good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> now we're talking about violence at the democratic convention like 1968. is senator feinstein floating this. >> the party flipped, supposed to be the republican convention. i think 1968 that's a little
7:18 am
hot. bernie sanders is saying, wait a minute, stop talking about that kind of violence. you're trying to mischaracterize legitimate complaints about the party. 1968 there was vietnam war, protesters hit in the streets. that was part of the what the violence is about. i think 1980 is a more interesting parallel in the democratic party. you had ted kennedy, carter had the delegate, going to the nomination, locked up but kennedy kept fighting anyway. he had a meeting with carter and said let's have one last debate, same way bernie sanders is calling for debate now. carter didn't want to do it. kennedy took it all the way to the convention and ended up being the liberal hero coming out of the that convention. can you imagine bernie sanders taking the same route. >> here is "new york times," sanders willing to harm clinton in homestretch. >> here is the harm. the harm is you have these fights we're having right now, which take all the attention away from clinton's desire to turn the conversation to a fight about donald trump. it also exacerbates an underlying weakness of the clinton campaign because it continues to kind of dog her, makes her seem like a person who
7:19 am
can't put the race away. we'll see what happens in new jersey and california where she's likely to do well. we may not be having the conversation next week. if he's going to take it to the convention, keeps dogging her while she's trying to make the conversation about donald trump problems. >> you think it would be clear democratic leaders suggest violence that may or may not occur. what does this do to the party? we were laughing but not laughing saying republicans don't have it together and now democrats seem a hot mess. >> find something to unify around it. if they are having fights all the time, it's hard to talk beauty unity. >> all right. thank you very much. tsa struggles to find the right balance between speed and security. ahead how congress could get involved and shrinking long wait

welcome back to "cbs this morning." we're getting new information on the egyptair passenger jet that crashed with 66 people on board. officials say flight 804 from paris to cairo went down overnight in the mediterranean just after crossing into egyptian airspace. >> a greek official said debris thought to be from the flame was spotted near a greek island. flight 804 plunged suddenly before dropping off radar. egypt's prime minister said terrorism cannot be ruled out as a cause. mark phillips is at charles de gaulle airport near paris. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, the exact cause of this air crash, of course, is not known yet but certain bits of
7:31 am
evidence are beginning to emerge that detail the last desperate minutes of this flight. let's take it back to the beginning. the flight left paris at 11:00 last night. it's been in the air alt over two hours over greek airspace, had been in contact with greek traffic control. at that point greek military radar says the plane took a couple of violent turns, turning 90 degrees in one direction at one point and immediately 360 complete turn in the other direction. all this time dropping precipitously from cruising altitude down to about 10,000 feet where it disappeared off the radar. families have gathered -- have been gathering both in paris and cairo looking for news. they now know the news is bad. we also know here enparis and cairo, government sources including ministerial level are saying they believe the primary or most likely cause of this is

good morning to our viewers in the west. it is thursday may 19th, 2016. welcome to "cbs this morning." there's more news, reports of debris spotted. we learned the plane dropped violently. first today's eye-opener at 8:00. >> the crash has taken place. egyptian ministry of aviation says the most likely cause is terrorist. >> absent information he has we don't, it seems like every possibility should be on the table. >> details unclear.
8:01 am
the reality is egyptair has a checkered travel safety record. >> sanders is furious democratic officials would accuse him of promoting violence. now they are backing off. >> what's this doing to the democratic party. we were all saying republicans don't have it together, now democrats seem to be a hot mess. >> the problem is they have to find something to unify around it. if they are having fights all the time it's hard to talk about unity. >> connecting dots in daily campaign activities can be kind of a challenge. foreign policy tutoring followed by yet another social media sizzler about bill clinton. >> ballinger and richards uploading climbing data every day. while they are making the final push you can check in on how their bodies are holding up. >> my goodness, did it again. for the second time this year, the sox turn a triple play. unreal. i'm charlie rose with gayle

king and norah o'donnell. found in mediterranean sea, the debris includes two life vests. greece's defense minister says the plane was flying at 37,000 feet when it suddenly dropped. the plane spun sharply and plunged more than 20,000 feet and then disappeared from radar. >> 66 people on board the plane, 56 passengers, 10 crew and 3 security personnel. most were egyptian and french but there was one canadian passengers. this marine traffic animation showed how ships rushed to the area to take part in the search. law enforcement sources say fbi will offer assistance in the investigation. mark fingertip ips is at the charles de gaulle airport near paris. mark, good morning. >> good morning. well, crash investigators will now be heading for the scene while the search is under way and a couple of pieces of debris have been found. but the evidence thus far, according to ministers in paris
8:03 am
and cairo is that their first thoughts go to terrorist cause for this. this flight left here at 11:00 last night. it was normal as it flew across europe and across greece heading across the mediterranean toward cairo. the greeks say their defense radar shows the plane took two drastic maneuvers while cruising at 37,000 feet. first swinging violently one direction 90 degrees and then doing a complete 360 degree circle, dropping precipitously throughout that from its cruising altitude down to below 10,000 feet where it finally fell off of the radar. relatives of the families had gathered waiting for news now that they know the news is bad. here in paris president hollande said his mind turned to terrorism. in cairo, aviation ministry says that's their thinking at this time, too. >> mark phillips outside paris. thank you so much.
8:04 am
egypt and its flagship carrier have a checkered recent safety schedule, a man wearing a vest hijacked a plane, diverted to vip rece. he was later arrested and no one was hurt. in october an apparent bomb brought down russian passenger plane over sinai desert after the plane took off from an egyptian resort. all 224 people on gorboard were killed. at the time they said no evidence of a bomb but u.s. intelligence officials leaned toward a bomb theory which later and accurate. >> former ntsb and cbs aviation expert joins us. good morning. >> good morning. >> these latest details are horrifying. i can't imagine what it was like on that plane. if it was not an explosion, what could cause the plane to drop like that. >> there are a lot of things that could cause a problem like that. too many to list right now. again, the descriptions we have to actually take a look at exactly what the performance of this aircraft was doing at that
8:05 am
moment and could it have been pilot issues, could it have been mechanical failure, could it have been a bomb. all of these things will be revealed when we're finally able to find the aircraft itself, recover the black boxes, the voice data recorder and flight data recorder. together they will reveal pretty much everything we need to know. >> mark, did you have any thoughts when you heard this was an egypt airplane? >> the investigators are going to have to look at the security history of egyptair, the safety history of egyptair, the maintenance history of egyptair and frankly the pilot training of egyptair. all those things are going to be very important in this investigation. >> mark, you may have sources that we don't sitting at the table. any evidence of a distress signal? >> there's a lot of misinformation that has come out already, but that's not unusual, charlie, given information early in accidents are rarely what we end up having to put a great deal of credibility to. >> other than finding the plane,
8:06 am
what is the first thing investigators need to do? >> well, the most important thing we can find at this time, of course, is any evidence, meaning any of the debris from the aircraft and mostly we're looking for those cockpit voice recorders. accidents are never really one thing. they are a chain of events, which all together create a catastrophic ending. >> we had captain sully sullenberger here in the last hour and he was saying when you're at 37,000 feet, it's normally a very calm time for the aircraft. what does this say to you that it happened then? >> sully is absolutely right. only 10% of the fatal accidents that are operating in commercial airspace occur at that time. 60% of them are really in the descent and landing portion of the trip and 22% are in takeoff. so this is a very safe position to be in, 37,000 feet at cruise and that's level altitude. >> are you concerned about
8:07 am
terrorism? >> certainly that's something that's going to have to be put into the mix. nothing will be discarded until we begin to actually bring up evidence and begin the analysis of what we're finding. >> is there anything else that should be done in terms of being able to provide some kind of information when a plane is in trouble? >> actually, charlie, there are things that can be done. i happen to be on the board of directors of a company that provides continuous streaming. that's something which, in fact, needs to be done. the airlines need to implement these kinds of things. we would actually have a great deal of information already had this airplane been equipped with the ability to stream its flight data and positioning. >> all right, really important information. thank you so much. >> any time. >> coverage of egyptair flight continues all day on 24 hour streaming network, cbsn. >> i keep thinking about that plane. we go to bed and wake up and it's a terrible day.

8:33 am
>> i condemn violence of all sort, but i resent very much for any democratic leader to suggest in any way that the sanders campaign and millions of our supporters push violence. that is a lie. that is an outrage. and i hope that that statement will not be made again. >> senator claire mccaskill was an early supporter of the clinton campaign and has criticized bernie sanders in the past for attacking hillary clinton. good morning. >> good morning. >> does senator sanders have a point that he has unfairly accused of promoting -- has been unfairly accused of promoting violence? >> i kind of agree with bern oh this. i think nevada was an aberration. i think that the millions of bernie sanders supporters are not people who want to resort to harassment and threats and throwing chairs. i do believe this was an outlier because i think the millions of
8:34 am
people who support him are passionate and inspired by the message bernie is delivering. that doesn't, however, change the facts or, unfortunately, for the bernie campaign, the math. the math is pretty unforgiving at this point. i'll be glad when we can finally unite behind the issues that i know he cares so deeply it. >> yeah, we've heard you say that you think there something behind the scenes? right now, it looks a little dicey. >> well, i think the thing to remember is that bernie began this because he cared deeply about the issues. i think bernie would be the firefighter tell you, it's not about bern -- first to tell you, it's not about bernie. it's about changing things in this country for struggling folks. and because of that, i have to know that when the math is final, bernie has to look at a potential president trump and go uh-oh, we've got to get busy and make sure that we never let

donald trump, the reality tv star that is reckless and risky and is an anathema to the things we believe in, we can never let him set foot in the oval office. i'm confident bernie will be there when the time comes. >> your colleague, senator dianne feinstein, is talking about 1968. i mean, comparing that the democrat could have a similar convention. is that similar high bushil lbu -- high bushily? >> i think bernie sanders is resenting that he has to stop because the math is so difficult for him. i think he wants to finish the process. i respect that. and i think all of us respect that. so i really think we need to let everyone vote, then count the pledge delegates, and lead off in states he didn't win. i not the only thing i would campaign about in the campaign is saying the process is rigged and somehow closed to voters. where bernie sanders has done well is caucuses, and they are
8:36 am
closed. you can't go if you're working. you can't absentee vote. you can't mail in your ballot. it is a very closed process. that's the majority of the states he's won is the most closed process of all. >> bottom line, hillary clinton cannot win a general election without the supporters of bernie sanders. >> no question. we need bernie and his supporters. most importantly, we need to unite behind these issues. it's the supreme court. it's whether or not we're going to have religious toast get into the country. it's whether or not we'll have a guy that can't decide between noon and 3:00 what he believes in with the nuclear codes. that's what this is about in november. the sooner we can hyperfocus on that, the better off we'll be. >> shouldn't the parties be taking a more friendly stance to senator sanders rather than criticizing him? >> i think people got very upset about what happened in nevada. when barbara boxer, an icon in the progressive movement, is
8:37 am
