7:03 am
russians can't hear you. >> this morning's eye open certificate presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to cbs "this morning". president-elect donald trump is excusing american intelligence agencies of spreading false information. he discussed his concerns last night with the director of national intelligence james clapper. in his first news conference since the election the president-elect denied claims. that russia had damaging personal and financial information about him. he accused some reporters of spreading what he called fake news leaked by intelligence sources. >> james clapper said after talking with mr. trump last night that they agreed that the press leaks are extremely corrosive and damaging to our national security. clapper made clear he does not believe the leak of a 30 page list of unverified activities came from the intelligence community. in fact he said it's not a u.s.
7:04 am
intelligence document. major garrett was at the news conference. >> reporter: he dodgeed a couple of key questions specifically if anyone met with key russian officials. on the topic of potential russian blackmail mr. trump was unequivocal. >> it's all fake news. >> reporter: donald trump denied he or his campaign straf were flurnsed by the russians directing his ire at u.s. intelligence. >> i think it was disgraceful, disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake. that's something that nazi germany would have done and did do. >> reporter: ending months of denial mr. trump admitted russia was to blame for cyber attacks during 2016 election. >> i think it was russia.
7:05 am
we also get hacked by other countries. >> sir, can you state. >> reporter: clashing with a reporter from cnn mr. trump punished the network for reporting he was given a condensed version of the unsubstantiated rumors of the russian blackmail report. >> i won't give you a question. >> reporter: mr. trump offered first details about separating himself from his various business investments saying he'll not sell his company but hand the reigns to his two eldest sons. >> don and eric are going to be running the company. they are going to be running it in a very professional manner. they are not going to discuss with it me. >> reporter: with just days until his inauguration the president-elect unveiled his thoughts on the supreme court vacancy he'll fill and how to pay for a wall on the u.s./mexico border. >> the supreme court what's your time line you said a while ago you were down four. >> that will probably be within
7:06 am
two weeks of the 20th. so within about two weeks, probably the second week. >> on the border fence. it appears clear u.s. taxpayers have to pay for it upfront. what's your plan to get mexico to pay for it. >> it's not a fence. it's a wall. you misreported it. we're going to build a wall. i can wait a year and a half until we finish our negotiation with mexico which will start immediately after we get to office but i don't want to wait. >> reporter: back to that call from the director of national intelligence. it was meant to diffuse a dispute. that's one the intelligence community and some top trump advisors would very much like to avoid. >> to make sure it doesn't fester how does it get fixed? >> reporter: not going to be easy. the president-elect feels that the intelligence community has done him wrong throughout this entire transition process, with the russian hacking disclosures. he's been forced to admit that.
7:07 am
that's now a concession to the intelligence community and about being right something he tried deny. that begins to build relationships with intel community. his grievance about this latest flap goes back to the intelligence community and their relationship with trump has to evolve where they both trust each other, rely on each other and operate in common cause and right now that's not the feeling eritrea side has about each other. >> major, thank you. that's what leon panetta is saying. president obama former defense secretary leon panetta is warning president-elect about feuding with intelligence agencies. panetta told scott pelley president and intelligence officials need to trust each other to protect the country. he says criticizes thog agencies in public can have serious consequences. >> i think what happens is it damages the credibility of not only the intelligence that is being provided, but, more importantly, it undermines the
7:08 am
morale of those who are involved in our intelligence service. these are good patriots. they are not republicans or deposition. they are committed to getting the best intelligence possible for the president of the united states. that involves risk. they have to put their lives on the line. they are going to hesitate to do that if they feel president of the united states does not trust the work that they are doing. leon panetta says if he needs to question intelligence agencies he should do that in the oval office. >> former exxonmobil ceo rex tillerson was asked about his own ties to russia during a confirmation hearing. he has met with russian president vladimir putin and kremlin gave him a friendship award in 2013. nancy cordes is at the state capital with more. good morning.
7:09 am
>> good morning. given the talk of russian influence hardly surprising that russia was a big focus of the questions at rex tillerson's hearing and unclear whether the former exxon ceo who has done extensive business in russia said enough to satisfy some key republican hold outs. >> is vladimir putin a war criminal? >> i would not use that term. >> reporter: florida senator marco rubio was looking for tough language from rex tillerson but he didn't get it. >> do you believe that vladimir putin and his cronies are responsible for ordering the murder of countless d lesless d journalists. >> i don't have sufficient information make that claim. >> reporter: tillerson called out for invading ukraine but never discussed russia with his would be boss. >> i would have thought russia would be at the very thought of that considering all the actions that have taken place. that did not happen?
7:10 am
>> that has not occurred yet. >> reporter: outside the hearing room there was one topic on everyone's mind. >> i always wondered what did russia have on donald trump? >> reporter: some republicans suggested the unsubstantiated documents were leaked by u.s. intelligence. >> there's an effort somewhere to undermine the ledge macy of this election. >> reporter: the material stems from a private investigation not a u.s. probe. senator john mccain was handed a copy late last year from an outside source he wouldn't name. >> i don't know. that's why i gave it to the fbi. >> reporter: marco rubio didn't address the specific allegations but said it's clear russia is achieving its objectives. >> i think they are sitting back and saying we got americans fighting over our involvement in the elections. that's perfect. it undermines their democracy. >> reporter: russia is sure to be the topic of the day again today with two key confirmation hearings that are getting under way right now. congressman mike pompeo to head
7:11 am
the cia and retired marine corps general mattis who is mr. trump's pick to lead the department of defense. >> thank you, nancy. russia denies having any embarrassing information about the president-elect and this morning it is objecting to the senate testimony of the secretary of state nominee. elizabeth palm certificate in moscow where there's criticism about a move by the obama administration. >> reporter: good morning. you can probably see the kremlin through the snow behind me. they just had their regular press conference, press briefing. and top of theened, no surprise, u.s.-russia relations. first off the spokesman said that the u.s. military in poland threatens russia's national interest. a few days ago all the hardware of a u.s. combat brigade came ashore in germany and rolling towards poland. 4,000 u.s. troops are going to
7:12 am
hook up with it and then will take part in extensive multinational nato exercises all through the summer. this amounts to the first build up of u.s. troops on european soil since the cold war and the russians clearly don't like it. also he singled out rex tillerson's comments yesterday at his confirmation hearing that the annexation of crimea by russia almost two years ago was illegal. not surprising he said the kremlin disagrees. he did end on a con note that trump's hopes for dialogue was a hopeful sign. >> what about reporting on documents that were published by buzz feed? >> reporter: it's interesting in that they don't constitute the majority of the coverage today. certainly they mention the kremlin's denial that they have no material that they could use to blackmail donald trump, but
7:13 am
what's taking up equal space in the media landscape today is donald trump's chaotic press conference yesterday, his dust up with some members of the media, and also barack obama's good-bye speech. you can see the big photograph on the front page today of president obama wiping away a tear. >> i am wondering this, when donald trump gets a news conference do they cover it live in moscow in real-time like they do here in this country? >> reporter: depending on where they are in the schedule and the week, but, yes, chunks of it would be carried live. >> thank you very much. liz palmer from moscow. after two davis testimony jeff sessions bid to become u.s. attorney general is in the hands of senator colleagues. senator booker made an impassioned plea. he joins john lewis in criticizing the alabama senator's record on civil rights. >> we need someone who will
7:14 am
stand up, speak up and speak out for people who have been discriminated against. we need someone as attorney general who will look out for all of us. and not just for some of us. >> three former colleagues defended him. they said he would fight for everyone's civil rights. willie huntly said jeff sessions will enforce and follow the laws of the united states even handedly, equally and with justice for all. the republican majority in the senate is expected to confirm sessions. senate republicans stayed up late to begin the effort to repeal obamacare. senators voted 51-48 overnight to have committee create legislation that would dismantsle parts of the affordable care act. the measure protects the repeal from any democratic filibuster. it also ensures repeal vote can pass with a simple majority. recontrolled house plans to vote on the resolution tomorrow. one of the world's largest
7:15 am
automakers has agreed to plead guilty to cheating on emissions test in the u.s. and in screaming to cover it up. volkswagen has promised to pay millions in fines. the justice department made the sweeping announcement yesterday. kris van cleave is in washington with details of the settlement. >> reporter: the department of justice took rare action yesterday indicting six volkswagen executives and levying the largest fine u.s. history after volkswagen admitted to installing software on near lie 600,000 vehicles in the u.s. lowering the emissions results during epa testing. volkswagen agreed to pay a total of $4.3 billion in fines. $2.8 billion in criminal penalties. the company will plead guilty to three felony counts. now those six indicted

good morning to our viewers in the west. it is thursday, january 12th, 2017. welcome back. more real news ahead including on how stress in your brain predicts future heart troubles. plus, jp morgan chase, ceo, jamie dimon, whether he believes trump administration will be good for the united states. >> donald trump dodged key questions, but on blackmail, he was unequivocal. >> it was a group of opponents that got together, sick people, and they put that crap together. >> begin all the talk of russian influen influence, it's hardly surprising that russia was a big focus at tillerson's hearing.
8:01 am
>> you can see the kremlin through the snow behind me. they had their regular press conference, and top of the agenda, no surprise, u.s.-russia relations. >> from a nearby creek forced the rescue of 50 people in the area in a matter of hours. worst of the storms have now passed, but cleanup could take weeks. workers got an unexpected visit, crash, bam, wow, pow. drones are good, but they scare me. >> drones run into things. >> i know. >> my friend tells me. >> what's the name, charlie? president obama complimented michelle obama for her grace and grit, which i assume are the names of her arms. you don't want to mess with grace, and you don't mess with grit. eat your vegetables. >> this morning's "eye opener" at eight is presented by liberty mutu mutual insurance.
8:02 am
i'm charlie rose, and president-elect donald trump spoke with the director of national intelligence last night after accusing the intelligence community of spreading lies about him. in a rare statement director james clapper talked with the president-elect about media reports on the intelligence briefing friday. he said, quote, i expressed my profound dismay at the leaks that have been appearing in the press, and we both greed that they are extremely corrosive and damaging to our national security. >> james also said they spoke about 35-page document potentially compromising information on the president-elect. that document has not been verified. clpper said this, quote, i emphasize that this document is not a u.s. intelligence community product, and that i do not believe that the leaks came from within this community. earlier in the day, in his first press conference since july, mr. trump accused intelligence agencies of spreading the false
8:03 am
information. >> i think it was disgraceful, disgraceful, that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake out. i think it's a disgrace. i say that, and i say that, and that's something that nazi germany would have done and did do. i think it's a disgrace. that information that was false and fake and never happened got released to the public. >> this morning, mr. trump tw t tweeted, quote, james clapper called me yesterday to denounce a false and fictitious report that was illegally circulated, made up phoney facts, too bad. while he anxioused questions about the relationship with russia, the state nominee did the same on capitol hill. russia dominated the hearing for retire ed exxon mobil tillerson who knew putin for more than a decade and done business in russia since 1998. they highlighted differences
8:04 am
between tillerson and mr. trump and shared how he sees the relationship. >> we're not likely to be friends. as others noted, our value systems are starkly different. we do not hold the same values, but i also know the russian people because of having spent so many years in russia. there is scope to define a different relationship. >> first on nato to be clear because there was discussion on article 5. can you clarify that you believe article 5 creates a binding obligation to assist any member was alliances of victim of aggression regardless of size or geographic location. >> yes, sir, i do. >> as secretary of state, would you threaten to break the u.s. commitment to article 5 as a means of pressuring allies to spend more on defense. >> i would not recommend that, no, sir. risk of climate change does exist, and that the consequences of it could be serious enough that action should be taken. >> what do you believe the
8:05 am
position of the united states ought to be in the south china sea, and what more could we be doing to stop china from violating international law? >> china's activity in the area is extremely worry sm, and, again, a failure of a response has allowed them to keep pushing the envelope on this, so, again, we find we are where we are and we just have to deal with it. the way we have to deal with it is show back up in the region with traditional allies in southeast asia, and use existing structures to begin the reengagement. >> tillerson also said china's buildup in the south china sea is illegal. we have a global risk consulting company here, ian, good morning. >> good morning to you. >> a will the to talk about, but one of the questions that mr. trump did not answer yesterday in this press conference was whether he could say with 100% certainty anyone in the campaign had direct relations with
8:06 am
russia. why is that important? >> he pointedly did not answer it. knew he was asked, clearly briefed, and, nope, i'm not taking that one. maybe he's not sure. maybe he is. either way, it's very clear from this report that was leaked, 35-page report on russia and trump, that there's a lot of information about ongoing connections between members of trump's foreign policy team including carter page who trump said he didn't know, but originally one of the four policy add vievisers trump maden to the press. paul sack from the trump ad mrgmgs all the way through in terms of leaks, awareness of the leaks. >> it's important to point out the 35-page document is a dose you filed by a washington journalists, unverble. it's not u.s. intelligence. >> a british firm. the intelligence of the former
8:07 am
agent responsible for it, analyst, strikes me that some of the information on russia, we have a team of russia experts. eme we looked at it carefully. the analysis looks reasonably plausible. >> but the point was, it's not verified. that's the reason news organizations did not. >> that's right. i think that there's no question right now that the ability to come out and say this is factual is not there. >> isn't it more interesting find out, too, what he'll do with sanctions? russian sanctions, perhaps? >> it's clear, very clear. i mean, one of the big pieces of news coming out yesterday was that trump admitted after saying there was no reason to believe russians was behind it, a 400 pound guy in the bed, turns out says, yeah, it probably was the russians, but even then, say the intelligence community did a good job. still could have been someone else, focused on china being the hacking threat. he wants to down play russia and says that russia working with the united states is a closer is
8:08 am
clearly a good thing. if you're trump, and your public view is they are not going to do it anymore under me, and it might not have even been then, then, clearly, it's wrong to have sanctions against them for something you can't prove or verify. >> he said, yesterday, ian, if he had a relationship with putin, that's an asset, not a liability. rex tillerson in the hearing said something different. what's the take on both comments? >> tillerson is in campaign mode because he needs confirmed, and it's a little bit dicey, so i understand why tillerson, just like sessions, would say things that seem very different from what trump, who already won the election and continues to be very unfeddered. i think that on sanctions it's clear, the position has been we want these off. all they are doing is damaging the u.s. relationship with russia. >> is putin an asset, not a liability? >> to the united states it is not clear.
8:09 am
i mean, putin clearly was not an asset to the united states in terms of the support for russian delegitimizing america's election. >> you can be, seems to me, putin likes trump not as little, except is trump representing the security interest of the united states? he can be aggressive in pursuing that end and still have trump, putin like him. >> sure. >> and i think that tillerson doesn't have much relevance to anything. >> clearly is relevant to trump in the way he's orienting towards the question. >> it's how he decides policies, not how it affects his ego. >> one of the -- tillerson is clearly one of the strongest adults that's been nominated to the cabinet, and to the extent that he has a problem, it's because everyone that's looking at trump and russia thinks this does not add up for the -- >> jamie dimon is coming up, but as far as you know, rex
8:10 am
tillerson, the elites, do they think tillerson is a good secretary of state for the united states? >> they certainly do. talking about former sec tafreis of state, up and down, republicans supported and suggested him to trump, but the fact is that tillerson on russia will enable trump policies that right now deeply unnerve the republican party, and i think that's why you see paul ryan and others coming as strongly after -- >> marco rubio. >> yes, absolutely. yesterday in the hearings and many others. >> great to have you here. >> my pleasure. >> this week on "face the nation" vice president elect mike pence joins john dickerson on sunday on cbs. heart disease could start in your brain. yep, our doctor is in the green room to explain the ground-breaking study that m,,

8:17 am
vascular system, but how. it's the first image study that shows us the particular area of the brain and the pathway that connects it to the arterial inflammation that is the beginning of atherosclerosis or plaque. so researchers in the study looked at three different individuals. they did a p.e.t. scan on them. what they found is in the activity of the brain, it was strongly predictive of those cardiovascular events. in addition, if it was highly active, it would predict you would have a cardiovascular event sooner, so the timing was related. what was most interesting to me was the pathway. what they found was not only the mig doula lit up but the bone marrow. it was producing these white blood cells. that's what they hypothesized as the pathway. it leads to increase of white blood cells and inflammation.
8:18 am
>> where is that? i'm trying to think. should we be protecting that? >> we should. >> where is it. >> the amyamygdala is on the ri and left side of the brain. it elicits memory. you'll perform memories in that area. in addition, emotional reaction. so things like feerks aggression, arousal all housed in the amygdala. >> so you can be happy you have a good brain. >> i guess. >> what can you do about this? >> that's what people want to know. we obviously need a lot more research on this, particularly on humans. we have a lot of animal research. certainly meditation, visualization, mindfulness has been shown to change and shrink the size. in addition, psycho therapy.

the hope is by elucidating these pathways, we might be able to come up with novel therapeutics and finding outlets for your frustration, finaling social connective ps, that helps. so there are techniques that people can use. >> connectiveness, having good friends. >> yes. >> how do you deal with stress, gayle? i don't think you're ever stressed out. >> not that i'm aware of. i certainly must be. you don't feel stressed either, do you? you don't either rngs i wish i had a great story to tell. >> maybe i do and i don't know it. >> it's because you don't feel it. most of the people i talk to in my office, i always ask about stress because it is a cardiovascular stress level. for most americans it's a big deal. >> there's something you can do about it is the bottom line. >> thank you, dr. tara narula. baby lola may be the youngest fan of the dallas

8:33 am
they don't know what their skills are. they could be in lodge it is ticks, supplies. it's a great effort to take the citizens we hold in the highest regard and get them jobs. >> but now you started the new program about a year ago and you're going after high school students especially at a time when they're searching what am i going to do with my life. >> there is economic and moral imperative that we get jobs for. there's going to be 16 million jobs available on the next seven or eight years and these kids want jobs. these are middle class jobs. these jobs pay $40,000 to $60,000 a year. it has to be done with companies and government. it cannot be done by one or the other. >> why does it matter to you, jamie dimon? because you could do anything
8:34 am
with anybody. >> big companies are philanthropic but we're all invested in having communities that work with everything. if america thrives, cities are healthy. that's better for all of us, for social, for families. it's a moral imperative. i would do it for that reason alone, but america needs to compete around the world and if we don't have trained employees, we're not going to compete as well. >> are you suggesting public/private are the way to go in. >> i think the jobs in san francisco are different than the jobs in new york. they need phlebotomists and radiologists. i was in focus hope in detroit where they need machine control operators. these are tough jobs. >> but donald trump said he's going to be the greatest jobs producer god ever created. can you top that? >> i hope he's right. >> how is donald trump going to affect business? what would you like to see?

>> i'm going to say the best person to read about donald trump is my daughter who writes for "the daily news." >> laura dimon. >> from a loving father. >> a worthy profession, journalism. >> it is a very worthy profession. >> what page is she on? >> 3 and 4. >> oh, you know. >> for any president-elect, it is important that we have a healthy vibrant economy. it's important for jobs, businesses, middle-class wages, low skimmed wages and i'm hoping a lot of policies -- we're talking tax reform which we desperately need. that's probably the most important thing but there are a whole series of things like infrastructure. >> do you have opinions on trade or -- >> not really, but i think his opinions so far have been, you know, one-liners, and, you know,
8:36 am
he's quite clear when you read the art of the deal and stuff like that, that he takes an extreme position. but he's hired a lot of professional people. he's put on the playing field people that are experienced, successful, smart, patriotic, you know, and then you've about got to get into the detail. it's got to be a lot of detail. >> did he talk to you about being treasury secretary? >> i was not offered the job. i never thought i was suited for the job. i had a contact with them and i'm thrilled. i haven't finished what i'm doing. i know steve mnuchin and i think he's quite qualified, he's very smart, he wants to do the right thing, he knows them quite well >> and rex tillerson? >> rex tillerson is a class act. almost every country has had dealings with russia. that doesn't question patriotism. the other thing is success. do you want people who are
8:37 am
unsuccessful? successful, experienced, you know, respected by everybody in deals around the world. i think that's a pretty good trade. >> i want to get your take on globalism or anti-globalism. one of the things trump said yesterday is companies who move jobs outside the u.s. will face a, quote, very large border tax. >> yeah. >> are you worried about trade and how it will affect the economy? >> not -- you know, again, i'm looking past the one-lines and thinking about what's important for america. so a lost us do business all around the world. part of america's competitiveness is because we have microsoft and boeing and p p morgan chase and we have to educate the world on that. the downside, you've seen people recognizing there are downsides to trading. there are towns in america who have been devastated by it. we have to do a better job at fixing that. this thing called trade
8:38 am
