7:03 am
mickey mouse is now chairman mouse. this morning's eye-opener presented by toyota, let's go places. welcome to "cbs this mornin morning". loretta lynch has decided not to make the final decisions in the investigation of hillary clinton's e-mail server. that news, confirmed this morning follows lynch's controversial private meeting with former president, bill clinton d clinton. >> a justice department official says she'll announce today she'll accept the recommendations on whether or not to file charges. lynch says she and the former president did not discuss the fbi discussion into the private e-mail, while she was secretary of state. nancy cordes is in washington where they want lynch to step aside from the case. what does this mean? >> here is what is significant about her decision. as attorney general, lynch doesn't have to accept the advice of her prosecutors. she typically has the latitude
7:04 am
to go her own way. but she is now saying she will essentially go along with whatever they recommend, even if she insists she didn't do anything inappropriate. >> is was arriving, he was leaving. he came on to say hello. there is not much more it than that. >> for the third straight day, attorney general insisting she did not discuss anything sensitive with the former president when they met for about a half an hour at a phoenix airport. but that did not quiet the critics. >> this gets worst and worst for her. this is icing on the cake. >> texas senator, john cornyn and other republican leaders called on lynch to immediately recuse herself. and appoint a special counsel in the case to avoid even the appearance of corruption. donald trump called the meeting shocking. >> i actually thought they were joking. i thought the people that told me, you know, said no way. no way that's going to happen. i am just, i'm flabbergasted by it is.
7:05 am
its amazing. >> democratic leaders rushing to lynch's defense. >> all i can say is loretta lynch is one of the most outstanding human beings i've ever known. >> lynch and clinton have known each other for decades. he nominated her to be u.s. attorney in new york in 1999. which is why some republicans have long argued she cannot be impartial as the final arbiter in the investigation into hillary clinton's use of a private server as secretary of state. president obama ignored a question about the wisdom of the meeting on thursday. his white house press secretary danced around it too. >> the question you're raise something what potential impact does the optic have on the investigation and again, i'm just -- i'm not going talk about it. >> but other democrats were not as circumspect. even if it was a social visit, the attorney general is speaking at the aspen ideas in colorado,
7:06 am
and we suspect she'll have more to say. >> i'm sure she will. thank you, nancy. donald trump facing a popularity test this morning. he'll speak to thousands of conservatives at the western conservative summit in denver. trump launchost the caucuses th months ago and now returns as the presumptive nominee, trying to unite the party. major garrett is at the convention center in denver, where donald trump will speak in a few hours. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. let's simplify things. what does donald trump want. party unity. when does he want it. now. no better way to test it in denver, where the largest gathering of conservative activists will show up, just three weeks before the republican convention. there will be support and hostile advises here. on the friendly size, sarah palin will be on trump's behalf, as will duck dynasty, phil
7:07 am
robertson, who occasionally sho shows up at trump's victory rallies. for the vice-presidential running mate process, cbs news has learned, trump has reduced it down to five, on that list, new jersey governor chris christie, former house speaker newt gingrich and paul manafort, the man running the entire process. trump will announce it the thursday or friday before the convention in cleveland. it will be at that convention where trump will have to unify the party and an acid test here to see if he can bring conservatives who are not altogether on board with trump into the process, and that will be his test here. >> thanks, major. it will be interesting to see. face the nation and political director, john dickerson is in aspen, colorado. that's where he has been moderating discussions at the aspen ideas festival, and having an overall good time.
7:08 am
>> good morning, charlie. >> we saw you talking to mitt romney and others, but let us begin with the democrats. how much damage is done here? and two, can she recover the whole controversy about this by simply saying i will not make the final decision? >> well, the damage here is in the short-term. this puts a bright light on a bad story for hillary clinton. and that story is bad, because the inspector general and the state department said she didn't operate within the spirit and letter of the law. recent ap reporting has shown both that the reasons hillary clinton has given for her e-mail server aren't exactly in reality what she has said. they've shown there was an email sent worrying about this private server she set up, which was an extraordinary system that was deleted and not turned over. and also, the problem, so the general problem for her is puts light on a story big distance between what she has said and what we've come to know. the long-term problem is that
7:09 am
this shines a problem, shines a light on her big problem, the trust instinct. voters will make a determination about which candidate will do the right thing when no one is looking. what the e-mail story shows is that she didn't bend over backwards to operate within the lines, and this meeting bill clinton had echoes that, which is that he decided to have a meeting that at the very least, looks very bad. this recusal is helpful for the moment, but not going away. >> john, it sort of, she is not removing herself from the case, the attorney general is not removing herself from the case. she says she will accept the recommendations of the career prosecutors. why not just do away, once again, with the appearance of any conflict and say i'm recusing myself? >> well, it is a good question. and whether that really matters in the end, i mean, if the fbi decides to go forward with some kind of action against hillary clinton, then it won't really matter. but in the end, if the findings
7:10 am
are not harmful to hillary clinton, there will always be this question that will be raised. >> i would assume that perhaps there is a fear that they would, if she removed herself, they might want to appoint a special counsel and that's not what they want. >> that might be so. >> john, it is almost being treated like a house of cards scene. if it was so secretive, they wouldn't have done it in a public place and could we take them at their words, grand kids, husband, could that possibly be true? >> it might be true, but why have the meeting at all. she is investigating his wife. and she is in the middle of a political campaign. the question from voters is, what will the instinct be by the clinton family when things like this come up if she is president. and a lot of her critics talk about the drama of the clintons. this is not a compulsory meeting. it was totally oh optional, why have it at all. >> the question about bill clinton, his judgment and the role he'll play in the campaign.
7:11 am
>> well, he is an ex-president, and voters will keep that in mind, which of the two candidates will have a sense of drama around them that might get in the way of their ability to govern the country. and they'll have to add bill clinton into the mix as voters make the determination between the two candidates. >> john, have fun in aspen. thank you for joining us. >> thanks, charlie. lindsey graham will be john's guest on "face the nation." and presidents, general mick arthur, sunday on cps. connected to the deadly istanbul attack, investigators learning more about the background of the three terrorists thought to be scene in this camera image. the death toll and gun assaults at the airport has risen to 44. holly williams is outside the apartment where police think the men had been staying. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
7:12 am
this apartment building is where the suicide bombers are believed to have lived in the weeks before the attack. we've been speaking with one local resident in this working class neighborhood, who told us he noticed something suspicious. new security camera video shows terror in the departures area, as one of the armed attackers went looking for victims. one of the suicide bombers is thought to have been a russian citizen from the north caucasus region. the two others from kyrgyzstan and uzebkistan. it is estimated several thousands fighters from russia and former soviet republicans have joined isis. the neighborhood where the attackers apparently hold up is popular with people traveling to and from syria. irdel is the local plumber, and told us when one of the men asked him to fix a leaking tap just a few days ago, he noticed a strange odor in the apartment.
7:13 am
i asked the man what it was. he told us, but he just waived me away. explosives experts believe it might have been a chemical precursor, used in the suicide vests. the bombs reportedly used at cocktail of substances, raising questions about how the attackers got hold of it. turkish media and a u.s. officials say this man was the organizer of the massacre. akhmed chatayev, from chechnya. and joining isis in syria. it now seems that some of those foreign fighters may have targeted turkey and its biggest airport. gayle. >> thank you, holly williams reporting from istanbul. an 8-year-old by is in critical condition this morning after being found unresponsive in a pool on one of the world's

largest cruise ships. royal caribbean was heading to port in new jersey for the emergency. don shows us what efforts were made. >> the cruise liner was only a few miles into the trip when the child was found in one of the four pools. but it was the ship's proximity to shore and the rapid access to emergency crews that gave the boy a chance at survival. new york city rescue crews quickly unloaded the 8-year-old from a helicopter and into the back of a waiting a.mbulance which then rushed him to a hospital. the boy from hawamaryland was f anthem of the seas. according to officials, he was without oxygen for about 18 minutes. this video shot on board the ship shows new york fire and police boats swarming the anthem

1,500 employees, no lifeguards. but it does provide children's life jackets at the pool. charlie. >> john, thanks. >> i don't know why you can't have a lifeguard. i mean, it's just -- >> especially in that setting, with that many children. >> it seems fundamental. >> it does. investigating the first deadly crash involving the first auto car. tesla model when he was killed in a florida highway collision. brown posted this video to youtube last year, showing the car's ability to avoid an accident. the death raises big questions, not just about tesla auto pilot, kris van cleave shows us the new phoning us for self-driving technology. necessary washington. chris, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. tesla is acknowledging the government investigation into this fatal crash. now, the investigators from the national highway traffic administration is going to look at the sedan as well as the auto pilot feature, the performance

8:00 am
good morning to our viewers in the west. can you believe that it's friday july 1, 2016, already? it's true. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead including new fallout after the attorney general's airport meeting with bill clinton. we'll talk with cbs news justice reporter paula reed about why loretta lynch will not file any charges in the e-mail probe. but first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> at attorney general lynch doesn't have to accept the advise of her prosecutor. she has the latitude to go her own way. >> could be taken we're talking about our grand kids and he's asking me about my husband. could that possibly be true? >> it might be true, but why have the meeting at all?
8:01 am
she's investigating his wife. and she's in the middle of a political campaign. >> what does donald trump want? party unity. when does he want it? now. what better way to test that proposition than here in denver. >> been accused of not doing enough to stop foreign fighters from passing through its territory and joining isis in syria. >> it was the ship's proximity to shore and the rapid access to emergency crews that gave the boy a chance at survival. >> investigators are going to look at the tesla model s sedan as well as the auto pilot feature. they're going to look at the performance and development. >> when july 4th on a monday, remember last year two nfl players lost fingers setting off fireworks. they blew their fingers off, which is awful, but it's a good reminder if you're going to play with fireworks, play soccer. [ laughter ] i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. attorney general loretta lynch
8:02 am
will not decide if charges will be filed over hillary clinton's private e-mail server. a justice department official confirmed career prosecutors will have the final say. that official says lynch made that decision before her impromptu meeting with bill clinton. >> she met the former president on her plane when the two crossed pathds in phoenix. she says there was no discussion of any cases. john goodwin of cbs news spoke to lynch about the optics of the meeting. >> you don't believe that gives off the appearance of any impropriety while your agency is investigating his wife? >> my agency's involved in a manner looking at state department policies and issues. it's being handled by career investigators and career agents who always follow the facts and the law. >> reporter paula reid covers the justice department for us. paula, good morning. >> good morning. >> so this is a change in attorney general lynch's role, but it does not mean she's stepping aside. so what does it mean? >> that's exactly right.
8:03 am
she is not recusing or removing herself from the case. what she has said is she will take any recommendation that comes to her from the fbi investigators and career department of justice prosecutors who are working on this case. now, with most of these investigations the fbi looks at all the evidence, they talk to prosecutors and they make a recommendation to the attorney general who can go with that recommendation or decide to make lesser charges or more significant charges. so here she's giving up that role as the final decider and says she will take whatever recommendation comes her way. >> why didn't she simply recuse herself entirely? >> charlie, i think the reason she didn't want to step off this case is she didn't want to risk a political appointee coming in and then having power over the case. she could have also passed it along to her deputy attorney general sally yates. but loretta lynch does not appear to believe that there was anything improper about her meeting with former president clinton earlier this week. certainly there was an appearance of impropriety, but she says no cases were discussed. so in her mind she does not believe she needs to recuse
8:04 am
herself. and this resolution creates a politically adventageuo decision. department of justice officials say this decision was made before the meeting on the tar c tarmac. but the fact this is only coming out now, gayle, this is an investigation there haven't been too many leaks. we don't get much information about what's going on behind closed door. again it's a resolution to what is becoming an increasingly controversial meeting. >> paula, thank you very much for joining us this morning. syrians fleeing that country's civil war are finding it hard to settle in europe or the united states. but canada is embracing them. this morning's "new york times" right there on the front page reads, refugees encounter a foreign word, welcome. reporter jodi kantor spoke to canadians who find syrians jobs and a why to navigate their new
8:05 am
culture. also cbs news contributor, her article is one of the most e-mailed items on the times website today. good morning to you, jod jodi kantor. >> good morning. >> they see the syrians refugee, say no thanks, we don't want them here. what do you think opens canadians to this? >> canadians in some ways are placing the opposite bet on syrian refugees as a lot of the rest of the world. they're not only taking in syrian refugees, but they're saying come into our homes. we're ordinary citizens. we have no connection to the middle east, but we are going to volunteer our time and money and spend a year of our lives getting you settled. >> why do you think they're doing that? >> if you look at the article, it's at what you will see is canada has a totally different attitude towards immigration and borders. we are at a time of closing, right? of protection, of fear all over the world. canada wants more population. they have not experienced a 9/11
8:06 am
type event in their lifetime. so what readers are telling us about this article is that they're very moved by the spirit of kind of generosity and trust they see here because it feels different from what we see elsewhere in the world. >> it does feel different. after a debate in which many republican governors said no we will block any syrian refugees in our state, president obama said we'll take just 10,000 refugees. but so far we've only taken about half that amount. >> yes, and also to be fair we don't know what is going to happen with this canadian project, right? of course there's always the fear of terrorism. and not only that but this is a really odd coupled relationship. the people we covered are toronto residents, they're very much like citizens of new york or san francisco or chicago. they're taking in these families, the families we reported on are from small towns. they have first and second grade educations, only a few of them have what we would think of as -- >> jodi, the refugees are afraid who are coming here.
8:07 am
>> these refugees are not used to being wanted or welcomed. they have been barely hanging on for years. and when they find out that a bunch of strangers are going to spend a year helping them, their attitude is who are you, i can't believe this, what's your ulterior motive? >> like what's the catch. >> yeah. and part of what is fascinating to me about the reporting is watching these two sides work out their relationship, right? i mean, these families eventually have to make money, but should the syrian women work? that is not something they would have done back home. are their husbands comfortable with them working? >> you capture the humanity, i think. that's what struck me about the article. i love reading it when you talked about individual stories. >> yeah, i did. it's humanity and also the culture. >> thank you so much. >> i love the photograph. extraordinary. >> what happened? a year of sponsorship, right? what happens when that year is up? >> that is part of the suspense. if you read the story, there are all these emotional moments about the bonds between these
8:08 am
people. there's a birth story. and yet you say when the year is up does the financial relationship continue if the families are not self-sufficient, do they get more help? you know, and then in 20 or 30 years what is their relationship looking like. and also are these new families going to be okay in canada? do they have the skills, even the language skills. some of them are not literate in arabic, let alone english. do they have the skills to function well in toronto even after a year. >> all right. jodi kantor, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> but it starlts with a good idea. >> well, especially in the context of the worldwide refugee crisis. what i think we would say is this is an interesting area. and there are by the way discussions about bringing something like this to the united states. >> thank you, jodi. >> thank you. transgender people can now serve openly in the armed forces after an historic decision. defense secretary ash carter made the announcement yesterday.
8:09 am
the move lifts one of the last bans facing service members. dr. jon lapook has been covering transgender issues and the effects on the military. jon, good morning. >> good morning, norah. the 2011 don't ask, don't tell all allowed gay, lesbian and bisexual service members in the military to serve openly. but the transgender ban continued because it was based on military medical regulations before the american psychiatric association declared in 2012 that being transgender implies no impairment in judgment, stability, reliability or general social or vocational capabilities. >> effective immediately transgender americans may serve openly. and they can no longer be discharged or otherwise separated from the military just for being transgender. >> defense secretary ash carter made the announcement after a yearlong study during which he met with transgender service members. >> they've deployed all over the world serving on aircraft,
8:10 am
submarines, forward operating base u bases and right here in the pentagon. >> about 2 million, some 2,000 to 11,000 transgender people are estimated to be serving in the military. the change in moll si means transgender service members will be eligible for any necessary medical care including sex reassignment surgery approved by a doctor. something army reserve captain fox paid for with private insurance. >> a lot of people will be able to come out of the closet and get out and say this is who i am and be able to serve openly without fear of discrimination or discharge. >> that fear became very real for naval petty officer landon wilson in 2013. >> command sergeant major in afghanistan who pulled me to his office and he said i need to know exactly what you are. >> wilson was honorably discharged from the military after being reviewed for a promotion. the then-23-year-old had been transitioning to male after enlisting as a female. we spoke with him last year. >> how we see ourselves and how
8:11 am
we present ourselves to the world is much more important than what could be under our clothes. gender is completely independent of your sex. >> so does that mean gender and sex are not the same? a lot of people are confused about that. >> it is confusing and it's not intuitively obvious. yes, your sense of gender, do you consider yourself a male or female? may not align with what the doctor told your parents when you were born. if it aligns, everything is fine in society, when it doesn't align, big problem. >> the military thinks they're going to help pay for transition surgery. >> that's right. yeah. what landon wilson told me yesterday, he's so happy about this but he said, look, our military commanders have to be responsible, they have to take a leadership role here. he's still a little concern eed there may be individual discrimination that goes on. >> thank you, jon lapook. this holiday weekend "time" magazine looks at 240 reasons to celebrate america right now. i'd like to point out reason number 38. you might recognize some of these. ahead, learn how bread is better
