7:33 am
you know, gossipy, if you will. as far as the trump situation, yes, i thought it was important to document as a historical record what it was like to be on receiving end of that behavior. and the reason, among others, is that as a first amendment issue, what donald trump did to me has real implications. i mean, i have a powerful microphone and a powerful platform at fox news and i had a company that had my back. however, not every journalist has that and not every journalist is quite as established as i am at this point in my career. in a president trump came after them like a candidate trump came after me, i think it would be dangerous and i hope the book will be a road map for
7:34 am
reporters. >> we saw the tweets that were nasty and negative toward you but i wonder if people realize what you went through. you had to take an armed guard to disney world and your daughter was asking what bimbo means. what did it to you and your family personally? >> well, it wasn't a delightful year. many people thought it was because they saw me on the cover of some magazines and said, oh, yeah. >> advanced your career? >> it certainly increased my name recognition in some quarters but i can admit to you i was doing just fine before donald trump but that is fine, you know? yes, it was full of darkness in many ways, gayle, and it was a personal struggle and because of the bullying i had endured for a entire year in the seventh grade which i go through in the books and a lot of parents and kids can relate to that, and other adversity i had had in my life i was able to deal with it. it wasn't enjoyable but this is one with of the core messages of
7:35 am
the book, which is adversity is an opportunity. and you take a look at people who you admire, who have accomplished amazing things, oprah, right? president obama and president george w. bush. she seem to be operating on the a higher plane at times and have a knowledge many others don't have. how do they get it? they had big challenges. they had bigger issues and they exposed themselves to greater things. i think to that sfeextent you c welcome adversity to get to that level and higher level. >> how will you have a relationship with him now he is president-elect? are you worried about that? >> i think we are in a better place. i actually feel good about where i am now with president-elect trump. after that meeting at trump tower. >> he hugged you. >> that meant to me i'm sorry, but let's move on. this is a picture from his office. i was glad that he was able to let it go. that was the point of me being
7:36 am
there was -- because we had always had a good relationship just to say not explicitly but the suggestion was let's move on from this. stop it. i don't belong on the playing field with you. i belong over here on the sidelines. and to his credit, he was able to move on even though he had held on to his anger for nine months. he did prove that he is able to do that and ever since, he and i have had a fine relationship. we are not tight friend, but he has treated me respectfully and he withstood my coverage which has been skeptical of him at times without complaint and that is fine. >> you detail the harassment you received from roger ailes, your boss, the chairman of fox. that started in 2006? >> it started in august of 2005. >> did it continue after that? or was it just that short period of time? >> so after i brought the matter to a supervisor and was told this is a good man, he's probably just smitten. there was a vouching for roger's
7:37 am
character and the suggestion was just avoid him. which i hadn't realized was an option. i mean, this is the chairman of the company who was calling me up to meet with him in new york. i was in the d.c. bureau. so i did that. i avoided him. and he left me alone after that, norah. it was -- that summer or that spring into summer, i developed a very bad stalking problem and on that matter, he was very supportive of me and had my back and that is detailed. >> you do write in the book had you said something or done something more you might have saved other women from experiencing that same harassment. >> let me make this clear. what i did when it happened to me was i contacted a lawyer just in case he retaliated against me with not doing anything with him. it's all well-documented contemporaneously. i reached out to other women whether it was a serial issue or just with me and i found it was no serial issue at the time. then i did bring it to a supervisor. as a lawyer, i can tell you when that happens, a supervisor has
7:38 am
an obligation to bring it to the company and deal with it. and the company could be exposed as a legal matter if that doesn't happen. >> this was the bureau chief in washington? >> i have not identified that person because i'm not looking to get this person in trouble. i believe at the time they tried to advise me to the best of his abilities and i think this person understood it's power. roger was like a king at fox news and nobody you take on lightly. i had been at the company 12 months i was a lawyer and knew how to handle it but most pem who this happens to have no clue what to do and they are just scared. like me they want it to stop. i didn't want to put my career on the line. >> you had been there 12 months? >> you write in the book you used your power when it hit. i was wondering what your relationship was with your fellow colleagues. bill o'reilly rah here yesterday and this is what he had to same yesterday. your name came up. >> i want to be very candid
7:39 am
here. i'm not that interested in this. >> sexual harass? you're not interested in sexual harassment? >> i'm not interested basically litigating something that is finished that makes my network look bad, okay? i'm not interested in making my network look bad at all, that doesn't interest me one bit. >> is that what she is doing? >> then last night, he seemed to say if a woman -- if you have a problem, go to human resources or leave the company. >> well, i'll say this. i am very proud of the fact that i discussed this with rupert murdoch before i wrote this chapter in my book and we were all on the same page this was an important chapter to include and i'm proud of them that they feel as i do, which is sunlight is the best disinfectant. >> you don't believe you're making the company look bad as bill o'reilly alleged? >> i think roger ailes is making
7:40 am
the company look bad. this doesn't just happen at fox news. we got rid of ours, but there are men, trust me, out there right now who are doing this to other women and other women who are watching this right now who are scared and don't know what to do because they know very well like i did in the moment if you speak up the reality you can talk loftly everything about taking a stance but the reality you're labeled a troublemaker and the world in which we live, norah. hopefully less than when it happened to me but they don't know what to do. i don't have after the answers but i'm trying to do shed a light on this and put other companies on notice that we are watching you. i would say to other women if it's happening i would seek out elections.

you're watching "cbs this morning." we will be right back. b from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto® is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor,
7:42 am
as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. no one's surprised tender pieces and crunchy bites ended up together. that's just what happens when cats call the shots. new friskies tender and crunchy combo. tasty textures cats gotta have. friskies. for cats. by cats.

for millions of baby boomers there's a virus out there. a virus that's serious, like hiv, but it hasn't been talked about much. a virus that's been almost forgotten. it's hepatitis c. one in 30 boomers has hep c, yet most don't even know it. that's because hep c can hide in your body silently for years, even decades, without symptoms and it's not tested for in routine blood work. if left untreated, hep c can cause liver damage, even liver cancer. but there's important information for us: the cdc recommends all baby boomers get tested for hep c. all it takes is a simple one-time blood test. and if you have hep c, it can be cured. be sure to ask your doctor to get tested for hep c. for us it's time to get tested. it's the only way to know for sure.

8:01 am
police are now trying to figure out why the gunman opened fire. >> and i'm very proud of the fact i discussed this with rupert murdoch before i wrote the chapter in my book. they feel as i do that sunlight is the best disinfectant. >> in the words of long time chicago cubs announcer harry caray, holy cow! father archbishop presented pope francis with a hat and ball from the cubs. >> this is one of the busiest and most famous streets in the country. the president elect decides to split time between the white house and the penthouse, protection could be a challenge. not just now, but throughout the presidency. >> does president elect trump not understand the number one job requirement? it is right there in the constitution. must be willing to relocate. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. donald trump's presidential
8:02 am
inauguration is 65 days away. sources describe the state of his transition team as stalled and scrambling. but in a tweet last night, mr. trump called the process, quote, very organized. >> vice president elect mike pence who is now in charge of the transition has ordered all registered federal lobbyists to leave as recently as sunday mr. trump told lesley stahl on 60 minutes that the lobbyists were necessary. >> everybody who works for government, they leave government and become a lobbyist essentially. the whole place is one big lobbyist. >> you're basically saying you have to rely on them, even though you want to get rid of them? >> i'm saying they know the system right now, but we're going to phase that out. you have to phase it out. >> the president elect's son-in-law jared kushner is a powerful voice throughout the campaign is said to be behind many of the changes in the transition team. the firing of former congressman mike rogers and lobbyist matthew friedman was part of a purge k
8:03 am
orchestrated by kushner. the u.n. secretary-general and the french president said yesterday that mr. trump must honor the 2015 paris agreement, it aims to shift the world from fossil fuels to cleaner energies. the president elect has called climate change a hoax. this is what he said back in may. >> we're going to cancel the paris climate agreement. and stop -- unbelievable. and stop all payments of the united states tax dollars to u.n. global warming programs. >> the president elect has not talked about climate change since the election. senator bernie sanders told us on monday that mr. trump's views are a concern. >> what this guy is talking about in terms of climate change should frighten not only the people in this country, but around the world. because if the president of the united states does not believe that climate change is real, if he's not going to be aggressive in transforming our energy, that's a lesson that's a message
8:04 am
that goes to the entire world. >> the president elect chose myron ebell to lead his epa transition team. he said that climate change is, quote, not based on science, but a political consensus. during the campaign arizona senator jeff flake was one of donald trump's loudest republican critics. >> we cannot, for the future of the party, be associated with this kind of message and with this kind of tone and tenor. there are certain things that you can't do as a candidate, and some of the things he's done i think are beyond the pale. to put your own judgment, his judgment above that of the intelligence community is frightening, frankly. can't win and frankly shouldn't win an election if he continues to use this kind of election and to espouse these kind of positions. senator flake is with us from capitol hill. senator, good morning. >> thanks for having me on. >> the man you called
8:05 am
frightening beyond the comments he made beyond the pale, now the leader of your party. what do you think is the biggest challenge going forward? >> only consolation of being wrong is i wasn't the only one wrong in terms of his ability to be re-elected -- i'm sorry, elected. there are a lot of big challenges going ahead and he's putting together his team. it is never easy to do, particularly when you're coming in not having been in government, so let's give him some space to do that. >> do you have some concerns as the reporting details that the trump transition team is in disarray? that they are slowly moving forward, that there are officials at the defense department and state department that said they have not yet been contacted by the trump transition team? >> well, i am not sure at what point they traditionally have been contacted. i think we got to give him some space here to put the team together. it is, like i said, it is a tough thing under any circumstances. but under these circumstances, i think it is doubly difficult.
8:06 am
so i am certainly willing to give them some space to do so. >> i assume that includes steve bannon, his chief strategic adviser in the white house? >> you know, i don't know him at all. i heard his name until a few months ago when he joined the campaign. so i haven't studied to see what remarks were actually his -- >> let me change the question then. because i hear you -- we all hear you. what is your test? when will you say i'm satisfied, or this goes beyond where i'm comfortable? >> like i said, let's give them some space. i'm of the mind to always give the president a lot of deference when he's putting together his team. and so i think that we need to wait and see. i haven't read exactly what he said, just seeing some things attributed to the publication that he is to run. so, anyway, i would want to see more before rendering judgment there. >> well, when you heard what he stands for, what has been
8:07 am
reported that he stands for, does that concern you? everyone keeps saying i don't know anything about him, i don't know him, i haven't met him, but when you hear about what he allegedly stands for, does that concern you? >> well, when you hear -- when you see things that are printed in breitbart and some of the headlines and what not, of course that's concerning. how much he can be blamed for that, that's another question. let's give some time, some space here and see where it goes. >> let's talk about the suggestion of rudy giuliani as secretary of state, rand paul did an interview last night saying you want a diplomat, not a bomb thrower in that position. what do you think about the suggestion of rudy giuliani being secretary of state? >> there is other names floated as well. bob corker and others. i don't want to make a comment that would influence trump administration one way or another. so i'll keep my comments to myself there. >> okay. >> but obviously we want somebody who can be effective there and i really like bob corker. he's been a very effective
8:08 am
chairman of the foreign relations committee here. >> you're on the foreign relations committee. would it raise concerns for you if president elect trump nominated someone to be secretary of state who has business ties and received money from qatar, from iranian -- ski exiled iranian political parties? does that complicate things? >> i've seen that being reported but i would want to see what's real and what's not. just a speech given or something else. so i'll reserve judgment on that. >> what is the most positive thing for you in the election of donald trump? >> well, the ability to go and repeal obamacare and replace it with something better. that's a big thing. to actually go with a lot of the regulations that are hampering small business and big business, and really hampering the economy, to have more conservative appointments to the supreme court, these are all very positive things and i hope that we have an effective
8:09 am
administration as mentioned i did not support candidacy of donald trump, but going forward, we have no choice but to look for the good and assume the best and move ahead. >> thank you so much. >> all right, thank you. >> well, senator, before you go, you are proposing a prossal that would soften prestrictions on earmarks. can you tell us why that is so important to you? >> it is extremely important. one of the reasons that republicans were driven out of the majority in 2006 was rampant earmarking that was both wasteful and corrupting. that's one reason that we got out of the majority. i would hate to bring earmarks back now when we're talking about draining the swamp, the last thing we ought to do is go back to these parochial projects that are extremely wasteful and corrupting. >> well, many argued those earmarks could help get congress working again. >> there is certainly those who say it greases the skids for
8:10 am
legislation to pass. it does, but often it is legislation we shouldn't pass. so it does grease the skid, but usually to big bloated appropriations bills. we're $20 trillion in debt and running a $500 billion deficit every year. the notion we ought to bring these projects back that will simply lead to more wasteful spending is absurd. so i hope that we consider it closely before doing it. >> all right, senator flake, we thank you very much for your time. >> you bet, thank you. >> office depot customers buying services they do not need? ahead, an undercover investigation shows employees diagnosing computers with nonexistent problems.,,,,
