police have made no arrests. peter thiel is explaining for the first time why he funded hulk hogan's lawsuit against gawker. the silicon valley billionaire tells "the new york times" that gawker published articles that "ruined people's lives for no reason." he was referring in part to this 2007 article that outed him as gay, plus articles targeting people he knew and did not know. thiel said, "it's less about revenge and more about specific deterrence. i saw gawker pioneer a unique and damaging way of getting attention by bullying people. i can defend myself. they usually attack people that simply can't." >> gawker's founder responded that thiel's opinion does not trump over our millions of readers who know us for routinely driving big news stories like hillary clinton's secret e-mail account and the hidden power of fbi determine the news you see -- of facebook to determine the news you see. editor of the newnew joins us, one of the venture firms, a minor investor in a

7:37 am
that has all kinds of things, gawker, and it's secretly funded. that is disturbing. >> the counterargument, just because he's funding it does not change the actual legal basis for the case. a judge and jury will decide it. >> right. the assertion that peter thiel could have funded an army of hack force take out -- hackers to take out gawker. he didn't. >> what was the deal that thiel bought? attorneys, investigators? >> he gave hulk hogan phone hire attorneys and to -- i don't know exactly what -- >> what does it buy you? better attorneys, better what? >> right. buys you 25 people to work on the case or 30 people to work on the case. hulk hogan's an affluent guy but needed the money. >> $10 million? how much? >> it's about $10 million, i believe is the number that peter thiel says is in the ballpark. that's for all the cases. he didn't just fund the hulk hogan case. he funded other cases against gawker. >> right. >> he said in "the new york times" that he put together a team to find cases to fund. in fact, what he says is that this is one of the greater philanthropic things that i have

good morning to our viewers in the west. it is thursday, may 26th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more news ahead, including japan's prime minister scolding president obama in public. we'll hear a response from ambassador to japan, caroline kennedy. first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. clinton says she's been incredibly open. but the report says she should have handed them over when she left the state department. >> donald trump a man who's running competitively in california, but his greeting in anaheim, once republican stronghold, suggested otherwise. a powerful storm as it went through, shredded homes and barns and scattered debris for as far as the eye can see. the tsa says they are making progress, but to really solve
8:01 am
this problem is going to take time, money, and more people. this murder case is casting a shadow over a trip meant to strengthen ties between the two countries. the states involved in the suit, conservative leaders previously vowed to defy this directive. they're calling it a threat to safety. what will be the impact of the fact he has done this? >> the most disturbing thing is it sets a template for what a very rich person can do to a media organization if it disagrees with it. >> if one of your kid ran against you for president, would you crush them too? >> i would try. >> you would. they found you do not ask permission and she had, the answer would have been no. >> here's the thing. even when you do give hillary clinton a firm no, what she hears is, try again in eight years. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell.
8:02 am
hillary clinton insists there is nothing new in a critical state department report on her e-mails. the department's independent watchdog concluded that using a private e-mail server while she was secretary of state violated security guidelines. clinton said she was just following the practice of her predecessors. >> just like previous secretaries of state, i used a personal e-mail. many people did. it was not at all unprecedented. the repo >> the report does say other officials including colin powell also made mistakes but it singles out hillary clinton saying, "by secretary clinton's tenure, the department's guidance was considerably more detailed and sophisticated." the report also says diplomatic security personnel did not and would not approve her reliance on a personal e-mail account because of the restrictions and the security risk in doing so. that contradicts hillary clinton when she said last year, "what i did was allowed by the state
8:03 am
department." >> cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson -- >> is approaching the table. come on up, john. hey, john. good morning. >> usually they drop me in from the ceiling. >> what have we learned? we learned a lot of things from this report yesterday. i want to get to the politics in a minute but substantially what have we learned from this report? >> that hillary clinton hadn't been given approval she said she was given. there's a difference when she says her predecessors. there's really one, colin powell, and what's different is the order of degree. she created aen entire server outside the normal system and that is different than colin powell. he didn't do that. it's a difference between running one red light and running every red light from here to chicago. that's the difference in magnitude. and the first answer from the campaign is she had been within the spirit and letter of the law. creating our own outside server was not in the spirit or letter of the law. >> how big a deal is this
8:04 am
really? i was at an event last night, and both democrats and republicans were quoting bernie sanders saying i'm sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails. >> that was a long time ago and he's since changed that. >> the people at the party didn't. >> is this going to improve wages, help their kids get into a college and not be in debt for the rest of their life, no. but it's about judgment and character, and we look at our presidents that way. the challenge for secretary clinton is in the answers are they going to raise new questions. in other words, when she says it was allowed and it was fine and i've been transparent, then you have an inspector general, not just a political opponent, but an inspector general saying the opposite thing, people are getting a fresh, realtime test of whether the candidate is shooting straight with them, and that's a challenge for any candidate. >> and you have this -- when you have something that is a controversy and it feeds more misgivings about you, i.e., you don't play fair or get away with things other people don't get away with, it's damaging.
8:05 am
>> that's right. it falls into a caricature or characterization of you and gives people fresh evidence of that underlying critique. that's a problem because it's not something that happened in the past. it's happening right in front of people as they watch it and as they're making evaluations. >> do you think it will affect her campaign? >> i think it already has, and she's got to get out from under these questions about her truthfulness and her honesty and this gives more fresh opportunities for her and her campaign to say things that are at odds with official responses. >> "the washington post" called this inexcusable, willful disregard for the rules. she did not speak with or be interviewed by the inspector general. her campaign has said she saved that for the fbi. is there a deadline for that fbi investigation? >> the fbi said no, there's no deadline. this is another thing. you have inspector general and fbi. you never want to be running for presidency and have inspector general and fbi in any
8:06 am
conversation ever. >> but my question, too, is why has it taken so long to do these investigations? >> some people would say because she held on to this for a long time and never told anybody it existed. other people would say it's the bureaucracy and that kind of thing and that there's a lot of sufficient to go through. >> what's happening in the trump campaign between paul manafort and corey lewandowski? >> that's a management thing there too. i think one of the big things is he caught the fire truck faster than anybody thought. they still thought they would be fighting out a race here so they had to get up to speed and be a national campaign faster than they thought. >> are you having a bromance with stephen colbert? >> second only to mine with you, charlie. >> you lost credibility saying you watch him in the morning. i'm just saying. i'm a little hurt by that. but with therapy, i'll be fine. >> it's on before you're on. i'm able to watch you in serial. >> okay, john. maybe we'll see you sunday on "face the nation."
8:07 am
>> right. >> we'll see. we reported earlier on the cloud over president obama's trip to japan. he faced a public scolding from the prime minister over the murder of a japanese woman allegedly by an american military contractor. our margaret brennan spoke this morning to the american ambassador to japan, caroline kennedy, about the case. >> you know, this is a terrible, terrible tragedy, and i think that -- i think it's important to understand how deep this, you know, and how big an issue this is here in japan. i think the important thing is that we, the u.s. military, the embassy, the u.s. government as a whole, and we've seen it all the way to the top with the president, have expressed, you know, our deepest apology, our regret, and our commitment to see that this individual is prosecuted in the japanese legal system. >> friday we see this historic trip to hiroshima. president obama going there. what do you think the reception is going to be to have an american president going to the
8:08 am
site of the first nuclear bomb drop and not apologizing? >> well, i think that it's hard to really understand the depth and the importance and the historic nature of what is going to happen tomorrow. i think that the people of japan are deeply, deeply grateful to the president for making this effort and making this visit. they're not looking for an apology. >> as we know, the president won't apologize, but the ambassador said he wants to move the u.s./japan relationship forward. nearly 80 million american adults are obese. a top surgical weight loss specialist is in your toyota green room. there she is.,,

in our "morning in our "morning rounds," keeping your weight from going up, up, and away. the fda is revealing a new type of gastric balloon that starts as a pill. in clinical trials patients 40 to 60 pounds overweight lost an average of nearly 7% of their body weight in six months. but the treatment is a little more complicated. chief of surgery treats patients with one of the two existing balloon devices and joins us at the table with some props. we know there's no magical pill. we all wish there was, but there isn't. this has the potential make a big difference. how does it work? >> well, gayle, the concept is the same. what we have right now in the united states that's available is a balloon filled with water that takes up space inside of your stomach. >> it's surgically implanted. >> this is endo skopally implanted. no surgery, no cutting, but you need ens do copy to place this
8:15 am
to place it and inflate it in your stomach. it stays in there six months so it takes up space and you don't have food taking up space. what's coming out in new studies and new technology is there are balloons that are smaller than this but filled with air which you can just swallow in the form of a capsule so you don't need endoscopy to insert the balloon. you take a capsule about the size of a quarter, it's connected to a shin cat they are. you swallow it and when it goes into your stomach, you hook it up to a gas tank, it inflates, then you disconnect the katrina they are and you have a balloon in your stomach. >> how do you get them out? >> that's when you do need endoscopy. >> my mind is going many places. >> no surgery. it's very good for people who are very frightened of surgery or don't have that much weight to lose. >> this is only approved in
8:16 am
europe and mexico. will it be approved soon in the u.s.? >> hopefully next year, hopefully in the first quarter. >> why are we behind europe in approving things like this? well, i think that the american government has much higher standards. there's much more criticism of the public and wanting to make sure that we have the safety. >> how does this compare to surgery, the results? >> well, the balloon typically will give you anywhere between 20 and 40 pounds, and it's really meant for individuals who have 20 to 40 pound to lose, not the 100 or 200-pound overweight person. surgery is really for people who have been severely obese for many, many years, who need to lose 100, 200 pounds, and that's a lifelong thing. >> do you like the idea of the pill? >> i really like the idea of a pill because you're always trying to improve your medical treatment and you want it to be less invasive. >> doctor, it's really important, saving people's lives
8:17 am
