7:04 am
general, is a way for trump to signal to conservatives, that he's going to take not only issues of immigration very seriously as he said during the campaign, but also issues of the supreme court. when trump had a meeting earlier this week about who to select, who to nominate for that vacant position on the supreme court, the only noncampaign, nonfamily attendee to that meeting was senator sessions. a clear signal he was going to be trump's pick for attorney general. and now he, in fact, is. as for the transition itself, the teams today for transition will start meeting with the state department, pentagon and justice department preparing for the january handoff. >> it's going really well. >> reporter: president-elect donald trump has chosen retired lieutenant general michael flynn as his national security adviser. a job that coordinates military intelligence and diplomatic policy from the white house. once a top intelligence adviser to generals in iraq, flynn, a lifelong democrat, spent three decades in the army. he co-authored a paper criticizing the intelligence community's strategy in

through 2019. >> all right. thank you very much, major. general michael flynn was in the room yesterday when mr. trump met with the japanese prime minister. after that meeting, shinzo abe called the president-elect a trustworthy leader. the meeting lasted nearly 90 minutes longer than expected. it was described as a positive conversation over appetizers in trump tower. it was the president-elect's first face-to-face meeting with a world leader since the election. >> mr. trump's daughter ivanka and her husband jared kushner attended the meeting with abe. drawing new attention to possible roles for trump family members in the new administration. our nancy cordes asked house speaker ryan yesterday about government rules on hiring relatives and how they apply to the president-elect's son-in-law. >> reporter: your understanding of nepotism rules do you believe that jared kushner should be able to take a job at the white house? >> i have really no comment about what job he should or should not take. but look he was a very integral part of the campaign. he's obviously a brilliant young man who donald trump trusts.
7:08 am
so, i will leave it up to the trump transition team to decide what role he place. >> i'm just asking what your understanding of the nepotism rule is. >> i don't have a deep understanding of how they work. >> the federal nepotism law goes back nearly 50 years and it prohibits public officials, including the president, from appointing relatives to the agency they serve in or where they exercise jurisdiction or control. it's unclear if the white house is considered an agency and whether foregoing a salary is a way to circumvent the laws. the nepotism law also allows officials to employ relativelies temporarily in the event of emergencies resulting from the natural -- from natural disasters or similar unforeseen events. hence, the lawyers are getting busy. in our next half hour we're going to take a closer look at jared kushner and the role he mate play in his father-in-law's administration. the u.s. is at odds with ally jordan over its official explanation for the deaths of three u.s. service members. sergeant james moriarty, kevin mcenroe and matthew lewellen were killed in jordan earlier

7:10 am
deliberate terrorist attack. not, as was first believed, a tragic accident. >> i haven't gotten a straight answer yet. >> reporter: u.s. officials say the security camera video shows several american vehicles stopped in broad daylight at the entrance to the jordanian air field where the green berets were based. the first was allowed to pass through the gate, but then a guard suddenly opened fire on the second vehicle. killing both americans inside. the americans in the third and fourth vehicles jumped out and started returning fire. the jordanian guard shot and killed one of them before he was wounded by the other. moriarty says his son was in that last shoot-out. >> the killer clearly knew that he had those four americans caught by surprise. >> reporter: jordanian officials originally blamed the americans for failing to stop at the gate. but the u.s. embassy in jordan said in a statement there is absolutely no credible evidence
7:11 am
they did not follow proper procedures. >> the jordanian government lied to our government, they know what happened. they know who this guy is. they owe us an explanation. who was it that murdered my son, and why? >> reporter: the father says the survivor described the shooter as wearing body armor and wielding an ak-47 against the americans, armed only with pistols and not wearing any body armor. the fbi has not yet questioned the shooter, because he remains in a medically induced coma. norah? >> questions still remain. david, thank you for that reporting. rescue workers say new airstrikes in northern syria this morning killed seven members of the same family. syrian civil defense crews told us a 6-year-old boy out of a destroyed building yesterday. he was trapped for hours. for four hours in fact after air attacks on his rebel-held neighborhood in aleppo. rescuers say the boy's mother was one of three people killed in that airstrike.

"wall street journal" reporter monica langley. >> the more he stayed with donald trump, the more he became like the trump whisperer. >> reporter: while mr. trump was speaking with president obama last week, kushner was strolling through the rose garden with white house chief of staff dennis mcdonough. but kushner's political aspiration came as a surprise to his friend. >> i think he would provide a balanced opinion. which i think is important to anybody that holds an office like the president of the united states. >> reporter: kushner and his father-in-law may seem like polar opposites but they have much in common, says langley. >> both political novices, they are both real estate billionaires. and they both love ivanka trump. >> reporter: and their fathers are both real estate moog yules.

minutes" sunday i talked to the players about why they filed a first of its kind suit alleging u.s. soccer of violating the equal pay act. >> we feel like we're treated like second class citizens. because, they don't care as much about us as they do the men. >> carli lloyd is considered the best female soccer player in the world. and captain of the u.s. team. we recently spoke to her, co-captain becky sauerbrunn, and their teammates. >> there's a long history of athletes battling their employers for more pay. it happens in the nba. it happens in the nfl. what's different about this fight? >> this is a social movement. i think. this is about gender discrimination. and i don't think that positive change occurs in the world unless it has to. >> how does this fight rank with some of the competitions you've been in? >> it's the fight.

7:39 am
lawyers in the country. but the u.s. soccer federation has a case to make as well and they've got some really good lawyers on their side. it will be an interesting, not just for u.s. soccer but i think it may set priss dentz for other sports players. >> looking forward to it. >> you can see my full interview on "60 minutes" this sunday right here on cbs. >> right after football. >> that's right. >> remember sometimes football runs late. >> including the patriot. >> including the patriots. good night for you. scientists make a discovery that could transform thinking about earthquake dangers in northern california. we flew over the danger zone in the bay area. ahead, how a quake could actually be more devastating than hurricane katrina. and we have this invitation to you to subscribe to our "cbs this morning" podcast. everybody's talking about it. you'll get the news of the day, extended interviews, and some podcast originals. find them all on yew tunes and apple's podcast app. anyone with type 2 diabetes

scientists are warning of a new earthquake danger in northern california. oh, boy. they've discovered that two fault lines link together north of san francisco creating a new risk for the nearly 7 million people that live in the bay area. some 1200 emergency responders took part in an earthquake drill yesterday, and hundreds of scientists, engineers and politicians gathered today in los angeles to discuss the next big quake. mireya villareal shows us the new concerns. >> reporter: a magnitude 7.8 earthquake hits california and the clock is ticking. national guardsmen are working to pull a trapped man from an elevator shaft while a specially trained dog searches for stranded survivors. this drill is meant to help emergency responders prepare for the real thing. >> you want to be the best prepared, the best trained, and the most efficient as possible. >> reporter: but these extreme scenarios could easily become

reality. usgs scientists recently discovered that two of the country's most dangerous faults, once thought to be at least two miles apart, are actually connected creating one massive, 118 mile long fault. using this acoustic device they confirmed that the hayward fault meets the rogers creek fault in the shallow waters of the san pablo bay near san francisco. >> the longer a fault, the larger an earthquake it can produce. and if the hayward and rogers creek faults went together along their entire length it would be up to a magnitude 7.4. >> what kind of damage are we talking about here? >> more damage than hurricane katrina in terms of loss. >> reporter: in 1906 the great quake leveled entire san francisco neighborhoods, killing thousands. in 1989 the lower prieta quake killed 63 people and caused $6 billion in damage. >> folks in the bay area hope to be prepared for a strong earthquake. >> the team is trying to produce the future by studying when earthquakes appeared here in the

♪ good morning to our viewers in the west. it is friday, november 18th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there's more real news ahead, including what president obama was thinking in the final days of this year's campaign. biography terre david remnick is in studio 57 with what he learned from spending time with the president before and after the election. but, first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> cbs news learned donald trump's choice for attorney general, alabama senator jeff sessions, will get the nomination. >> first senator to endorse donald trump has been part of the conversation since president elect trump became president elect. >> jared kushner is now widely believed to have been a pivotal force in paving donald trump's
8:01 am
road to the white house. >> president obama has tried to strike a cautiously upbeat tone about what post election means for global security. >> an officer on administrative leave after disturbing video surfaced showing him punching a woman. >> first big winter storm is pushing warm weather out of the northern plains, blizzard warnings are up in the dakotas and minnesota. >> they are laughing it up in key west on this friday before thanksgiving. practically the end of november. and they can wear bathing suits in key west, florida. >> they're wearing snow suits in minnesota. >> a story for the ladies, a study published in the journal menopause revealed that as they age, women tend to have better memories than men. there is no way this is true. back when i was single, every woman i met in a bar couldn't even remember her own phone number. >> not a good time when a woman forgets her own phone number.
8:02 am
>> she doesn't want you to have it. >> has that ever happened to you? >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. president elect donald trump is set to announce key appointments today to his national security team. sources tell cbs news alabama senator jeff session will be attorney general and mike pompeo nam named -- >> major garrett was the first to report the offer to senator sessions and joins us now. major, good job. what can you tell us about the senator and why do you think he was chosen? >> quick biography, senator sessions, 69, born selma, alabama, eagle scout, country lawyer, got his law degree from the university of alabama and assistant u.s. attorney and then u.s. attorney and then attorney general of alabama. elected to the united states senate in 1996, the first senator to endorse donald trump. now here's why he got the position. senator sessions not only endorsed trump, but was an ex-point of all of his
8:03 am
criticisms of u.s. trade, his immigration policy, he was a big advocate of, and he is a has been and will remain a crucial voice on the future of the united states supreme court under a trump presidency. sessions was the only noncampaign member, nonfamily member at a crucial meeting earlier this week that trump had at trump tower to discuss the future of the supreme court, that was a key signal to everyone in the trump inner circle. sessions, who could have been defense secretary, wanted to be attorney general, got the offer, and will take it. >> major, let me ask you about general flynn, who had a respected military career, but does face criticism for some of his views including calling islam a cancer. how are they handling that? >> well, general flynn was also, like sessions, an early endorser, enthusiastic one, on the campaign trail, a warmup act oftentimes for donald trump on the campaign trail, highly unusual for someone to then become national security adviser. think of condi rice, steve
8:04 am
hadley or henry kissinger on the stump for their presidents. that's interesting about general flynn. also, a hard liner on the question of counterterrorism, fighting more aggressively, talk ing about it more aggressively. and that's something that donald trump was a fan of from the beginning, and will probably be a fan of with michael flynn as chief coordinator in the white house of national security, intelligence and diplomatic policy. >> thanks, good work. as mr. trump prepares to take office, we're getting an inside look at president obama's thinking. david remnick is editor of the new yorker magazine and long time chronicler of the president, for his latest profile called it happened here, remnick interviewed the president in the last days of the election campaign and after mr. obama's first meeting with the president elect. he writes, though obama and his aides were alarmed by trump's disturbing rhetoric and loose policy, they decided the best path forward was to assume the mask of decorum to avoid any trace of the contempt that had
8:05 am
once been so pronounced. david remnick is now with us. you say he said this is not apocalyptic. >> he said the end of the world is only here when the end of the world is here. this is the rhetoric of trying to buck up not only his staff, but the american people, and the tens of millions of people who voted against donald trump, because he doesn't want people to despair if in fact they are feeling that way. >> what worries him then as president of the united states sitting in the oval office? >> appointments like sessions or flynn, who he fired, or steve bannon, that is for starters what worries him. he worries somebody who had a national campaign that was marked by misogyny and racism and all the rest is now president of the united states. he's worried about a range of things. >> and his legacy included. >> his legacy from health care to the iran deal to so much else. >> but he says in the article, you say in the article that the president told you he does not
8:06 am
see this as a personal repudiation of his legacy. on the campaign trail, he made it very clear, listen, if hillary clinton is not elected, all the progress we have made in the last eight years is thrown out the window. has he changed on that? >> i think only in rhetoric. i think there is a worst case and best case scenario and the best case scenario is limited indeed and some of the appointments make that clear. the best case scenario is that he governs like a normal conservative, that he's not rash, that he's not impetuous, doesn't endanger so much about our world arrangements and domestic policy that is good and decent. the worst case scenario, this is an administration that is chaotic, that makes good on its rhetoric of misogyny or racism and makes good on its kind of most radical speech that took place during this campaign. remember these debates, remember what we learned about donald trump and if he makes good on
8:07 am
that, if he is, in fact, who he presented himself to be, then the president is deeply worried. >> your article is so rich with reporting, we have not seen anywhere else in detail first, that 90 minute meeting between president obama and donald trump, i think you're the closest to a fly on the wall as we can get. what did you learn about what happened inside the -- >> i want to be very clear that the president is not, in fact, i asked him about that naturally, as any of you would, and he said, well, and he smiled and he said, i'll tell you all about it over beer off the record. meaning for the moment now, for the next couple of months, he's playing it close to the vest. what i do know about that meeting is let's just say that donald trump did not show himself to be any more sophisticated about policy than he seemed to be in the debates or in the campaign. but that he -- he was solicitous and he was kind of in shock and awe, to coin a phrase, about the responsibilities of actually being president and obama said
8:08 am
to him, look, one thing i know and one thing that obama has revealed that governing is not the same as campaigning. circus is over. >> also said that donald trump understands the difference how facts and truth don't matter. i thought that was an interesting point. >> well, i think we have seen from the campaign we have a whole new media universe. >> great example of it, obama, i was with him on the campaign, he and his political director were obsessed about an article that came out in buzzfeed about a town in macedonia, former part of yugoslavia, in a one town, where they were producing, just a small group of guys, producing over 100 pro trump websites that were filled with fake stories. completely fake. like, you know, pope francis is endorsing donald trump, or hillary clinton encouraged trump to run because he couldn't be bought, just complete nonsense. >> his concern about a media
8:09 am
where you can't tell fact from fiction. >> you can't penetrate it. if you create a media universe for yourself, where you're inhaling fake news, you're not going anywhere near the new yorker, the new york times, cbs morning -- >> why does the president think that hillary clinton lost in. >> i think it is a variety of reasons. the president thinks that hillary clinton would have been an excellent president, but i think, you know, he thinks she lost for the reasons that are pretty obvious, that she probably should have campaigned much more heavily in michigan, wisconsin, and, you know, but also external aspects here. wikileaks, james comey, you know, no one singular reason. >> you know, hindsight is 20/20, looking back. but it fascinated me during elections, speaking to the president's advisers and hillary clinton's advisers, they wanted to use the president to reach millennials. and yet in hindsight, the president going to minnesota, to
8:10 am
michigan, to some of these states, to reach some of those white rural voters that eventually voted for him in two elections might have been a better use of his time. >> they realized it is hillary clinton on the ballot, not barack obama. and they also used him to get out the vote in african-american communities, that's where i was in north carolina where i was in fayetteville and charlotte, the audiences were at least two-thirds african-american. >> he and his wife. >> and hillary clinton won that vote in a dominant way, but not in the same numbers. >> we have to leave it there. the article is really riveting. if that beer does happen, three of us would like to come along. throwing it out there. we're very nice people. >> the beer summit. >> we like beer. >> gayle wants a near beer. >> thank you very much. single photograph can change the course of history. ahead, how some of the most iconic pictures from the world's most famous kiss to the first photo taken with the cell
