scheme, nancy cordes looks at the new charges dogging the nominee. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. pthis report is creating new perception problems for the clinton campaign and the state department, which has been arguing for days that foundation donors got no special treatment by secretary clinton. clinton herself hasn't weighed in on the controversy, because she spent most of the past three days out of the public eye. courting campaign donors in california. >> lie after lie after lie. hillary clinton is totally unfit to hold public office. >> in austin, trump accused the clintons of running a criminal enterprise. >> it is impossible to figure out where the clinton foundation ends and the state department begins. >> he cited the new analysis by the associated press, which examines hillary clinton's daily
schedules as secretary of state and found 85 of the 154 private individuals who got meetings or phone calls with her had donated to the foundation. either personally or through their organization. >> this is why i have called for a special prosecutor to look into this mess. >> reporter: his allies, followed suit. >> a special prosecutor will do the right thing, appoint a special prosecutor. >> reporter: the clinton campaign fired back, saying the ap relied on utterly flawed data. they added that meetings with humanitarians like melissa gaits were squarely in the purview of america's top diplomat. they rejected trump's call for a special prosecutor. >> it is an act of desperation, given the turmoil we've seen in recent weeks. >> reporter: newly released
e-mails from huma abedin show slim fast, were able to have last minute meeting with one call to huma abedin. there is no evidence they got any special favors. the fbi director declined to say last month whether agents have looked into the foundation connection. >> i'm not going to comment. i'm not going to answer that. >> reporter: the term special prosecutor strikes fear in the hearts of long time clinton-ites, like when ken nth are starr was appointed to look into the controversy, including paula jones, monica lewinsky and bill clinton's impeachment. >> nancy, thanks. donald trump is now publicly going back and forth on the illegal immigration issue. he told a tv town hall that he may be willing to soften his plan for mass deportations. then he made immigration the centerpiece of a rally last
night in texas. major garrett in philadelphia, where he asked trump's vice-presidential candidate to explain the goal. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump has gone from calling the immediate deportation of all undocumented immigrants to reviewing and looking at options, anything about that exact policy. where trump will ultimately land is anyone's guess. we asked his running mate and he told us, details could be days, possibly months away. >> hillary clinton wants to fling open the floodgates to our borders. let everybody come in. open up our country. >> reporter: donald trump warned of his rival's immigration policy even as he redesigned his own. >> your children did not die in vein. >> reporter: appearing with mothers victimized. >> she wants to let people overstay their visas without
removal. one lawless order after another. >> reporter: despite his repeated calls for mass deportations, trump now signals he may make exceptions. >> we've got great people in this country. >> reporter: during a town hall, he said what has been obvious for days, he is looking for a way out of rounding up 11 million immigrants. >> there could be a softening. >> reporter: we sought clarity from trump's running mate, mike pence, following a rally in philadelphia. is donald trump going to deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country? >> donald trump has been very clear from the beginning. we are going to secure our borders, build a wall to do it. and he has also made it clear that he'll enforce the laws of the country, which the president of the united states takes an oath of office to do. >> that means deporting all 11 million people? >> people who have run afoul of
the law have to leave immediately. upholding the laws is what donald trump will do. the details in how we do that, we'll work that out with congress. >> reporter: during a section of that televised town hall due to air tonight, he signalled to voters around the country are asking him to find a way to work with immigrants who have not broken the law. this of course was the position articulated by many of trump's rivals, and one he scorned. that's why they call it a general election pivot. >> all right, major, thank you so much. >> john heilemann, co-host and executive producer of the circuit, which returns on show time, a division of cbs. john, good morning. >> i'm going to be pivoting all over the place. >> it's glass. let's start with a serious story, which suggests the pay for play scenario.
half of the people hillary clinton met with were also donors to the clinton foundation, now the clinton campaign says it was based on utterly flawed data. what is your take? >> let's be clear. the ap story says the numbers are based on only the calendars that have been released to them so far. the clinton campaign says, oh, there were a lot more meetings they took that the ap didn't know about. it could be a fair dispute, but based on what they've seen, it is a high proportion. it suggests to use your word, norah, a pay for play. what does suggest mean, what does play mean. it is clear that access, that people who gave money to the foundation, were able to access secretary clinton. the clinton campaign's response is so what. access means nothing. were any policies changed. that's the line in the sand they want to draw. for some people, who care about good government and our ethics watchdogs, the access being bought is a sin on to itself. other people say hey, if no policies were changed, who
cares. >> we should point out there is no proven quid pro quo here. >> that's the clinton campaign is making, and as of now, today, that's true. >> but the optics are disturbing. >> the notion that people are able to arrange last minute meetings with the secretary of state, a private kind of back channel between foundation staff like doug band, who is the most famous, huma abedin, senior staffer, that's a way where if you need to see secretary clinton, write a check for $1 million, there is a whole other element, which goes to the clinton speech making, right. so if you're on the trump side, you say this isn't just about even buying just access to secretary clinton. there is also a whole other network of financial impropriety where the clinton foundation is taking money in to do good works, which no one disputes. this he do good work, right. but also, bill clinton is getting speech fees, and then access to the secretary. it is also very unseemly at a
minimum and for a campaign that thought that fbi director comey said we're not going to indict hillary clinton, thought it was over, it is not over. the fact that there are no 15,000 e-mails we haven't seen that will be released between now and election day, more political head cakes faches for clinton campaign. new local transmission of zika has been discovered outside the two zones in florida. this case was found outside tampa in pinellas county. they're notifying people there, but has not declared it a new transmission zone. the county is about 215 zones in wynwood and miami beach. multiple transmissions have been found in both places. there are now 42 infections in the state, not related to travel. florida could also be facing a series weather threat. a tropical disturbance, churning near the caribbean may make

around 1,500 of their fighters have also crossed into jarabalal. it is key, because it lies on the 500 mile long border that still controlled by isis. thousands of foreign fighters have used the turkey/syria border to cross into the war zone. this comes on the same day that vice-president joe biden is here in turkey, trying to shore up relations with one of america's most difficult allies. the two nato members have a fundamental disagreement about how to tackle isis. the u.s. is working closely with kurdish fighters, who are battling isis. but turkey says the kurdish group is a terrorist organization. and has recently been shelling their position, at the same time it is hitting isis. >> thank you. the lawyer for the suspect in a virginia stabbing says his client has no connections to isis. he was arrested in roanoke for allegedly attacking a man and

good morning to our viewers in the west. it's wednesday august 24, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including the rush to help earthquake victims in central italy. all the latest from the region where dozens have died in collapsed buildings. but first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> this rescue operation is currently underway. one of the challenges is just getting to this remote region. >> this report is creating new perception problems for the clinton campaign, clinton herself hasn't weighed in on the controversy. >> it's clear people who gave money to the foundation were able to access secretary clinton. the clinton campaign response is so what. >> donald trump has gone from calling for the immediate

tourists. that remote part has made it even more difficult for rescue workers to make it up into these small towns. you can see rescuers, some professional, some just everyday people, citizens, on top of this rubble here picking through in some cases with their bare hands. while we were driving up here, we were stopped a number of times by ambulances, the roads are narrow here and clogged. that is making this rescue operation even more difficult, kevin. >> seth doane in central italy. thank you. hillary clinton faces new questions about meetings with clinton foundation donors while she was secretary of state. the associated press reviewed her daily state department schedules. it found at least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with clinton while she led the state department donated to her family charity, or pledged commitments to its international programs.
now, the frequency of the overlap shows the intermingling of access and donations. >> documents do not show that donors got anything beyond access. the clinton campaign says, quote, this story relies on utterly flawed data and omits more than 1,700 meetings she took with world leaders. the statement also said meetings with humanitarians like me linda gates are squarely in the purview of america's top diplomat. >> donald trump says a special prosecutor should investigate ties between hillary clinton's state department and the clinton foundation. his running mate, mike pence, echoed the call in an interview with major garrett yesterday. pence said clinton's connection to the foundation while she was secretary of state is a conflict of interest. >> given the enormous importance of this election, i believe the american people have a right to know and soon all the facts around the clinton foundation and its relationship to the state department under hillary clinton. >> picking up on the point of the public's right to know and
an important election, roger stone, a friend of, advisor to donald trump said yesterday he should release his tax returns and do it immediately. do you agree with roger stone? it's now time for the nominee of your party to release his tax returns? >> well, donald trump and i have both complied with federal rules about financial disclosure. all -- >> you know that, governor presidential candidates have released these returns for decades now. >> i would tell you i'll be releasing my tax returns in the days ahead. >> how soon? >> donald trump will be releasing his tax returns once the audit is completed. this is a man -- >> before the election? >> this man -- >> before the election, governor? >> i think that's yet to be seen. he's being audited. his tax returns i guarantee are a lot more complicated than mine. >> but for that reason alone shouldn't the american public have an insight into that? just to pick up on your point about right to know and entanglements or conflicts or anything that might emerge, don't the voters have a right to know that too? doesn't that same standard
apply, i guess is my question, to the clintons and to trump? >> i think donald trump's made it clear he'll release tax returns once his audit is completed. >> when asked about immigration, pence said trump will enforce existing deportation laws. he said their administration would have to work out the details with congress. all right. a new report shows and reveals the serious damage caused by zika on developing brains. it extends beyond microcephaly, the signature effect of the virus. the study in the journal radiology looked at brain scans and ultrasounds of 45 fetuses and babies infected with zika in brazil. look at this, images depekt the complex and varied defects of the virus. scan shows zika can affect the part of the brain that helps communication between the left and right brain. some of the damage was seen in parts of the brain that develop after birth. the world's longest aircraft, which we first showed you last week, crashed this morning in central england. the airlander, the manufacturer

it. you're here to help these kids. younger elementary students don't need pencil and paper work after they leave the classroom. i'm checking for math and reading here and i know what my kids know and what they can do. it wasn't right for them any more. >> psychologist lisa demorris is here and author of "untangled." and she is now a cbs news new contributor, we are happy to say. >> thank you for having me. >> this letter that was shared by a mother has now been shared on facebook 70,000 times. this is striking a chord for a reason, isn't it? >> it is. i think a lot of families feel stressed about homework and especially when it's excessive. you have kids have a long day at school and to come home and feel like they have to tackle a pile of homework and for parents who come home from their long day and then have to lean on a child to get them to tackle a pile of homework, it's not so fun. >> you have research telling us kids need to get more rest which
they are not getting enough. where does the research stand on the value of homework? >> well, it's interesting. when we -- we have a lot of data over a long period of time. what we see is that up until seventh grade, more homework doesn't mean more achievement. after seventh grade, seventh to 12th, we see that more homework does contribute to more achievement to a point. that you get to diminishing returns. so for middle schoolers, after about 90 minutes a night, the benefit drops off and then for high schoolers, somewhere between an hour and a half to two hours a night, the benefit drops off. >> wow. should students or parents push back if they feel they are getting too homework? >> if the child can't manage the homework, i think for the younger grades, maybe the parent should reach out to the school. for the older grades, we would like to see the child take that initiative. in my experience, teachers want to help. you know, teachers don't know what goes on in our homes. i think if things are not going
well at home, families should reach out to the teacher, all teachers want to find a solution to that. >> a 2015 study showed the homework load for some young elementary students is almost three times what is recommended. so, i mean, you talked about that drop-off effect when you go over the limit. i mean, what is the effect on the kid when you go over the limit? >> well, we like to see about ten minutes per grade. so ten minutes first grade and 20 minutes in second grade and 30 minutes in third grade has roughly been the recommendation. part of the excess that we are seeing is that we are in an era of high stakes testing and teachers are under pressure which means students are under pressure but it does stress kids and families. >> one school in massachusetts decided to get rid of all homework. an underperforming school and extended their school day. what do you think of that? >> not a bad idea. i think probably a relief to those families. get it done in school and come home and be off the clock.
>> this teacher in texas said most homework but let's use that time instead to have dinner together. she didn't say -- >> read to your children! which is critical. >> and those are excellent for child development. we know that. absolutely. >> when do you know your child is stressed and in trouble because of the homework situation? >> i think tears. that is not uncommon in homes. we all have -- i think that, you know, if you and your child every night approach homework like this terrible battle that is about to unfold, it's time to call the teacher and it's time to ask for help. >> what age then does it become appropriate? i have children who are going in from third grade into fourth grade and they are watching and heard this segment, they said that teacher is really smart! >> sign me up! >> but i find it is important, though, to establish some responsibility. you have homework and i see my kids react to it differently. they say got to get this done, i got to get this done and i find it encouraging to watch they see
