7:33 am
underestimating his successor. >> you have to admit this is one of the strangest transitions in history. >> it's unusual. >> i'll agree with that. and i expect the president-elect would agree with that. look. he's an unconventional candidate. i don't think there's anybody who's run a campaign like his successfully in modern history, not that i can think of. as a consequence, because he didn't have the support of many of the establishment and his own party, because he ran sort of an improvisational campaign. >> can you run an improvisational presidency? >> i don't think so. so now he's in the process of building up an organization, and we'll have to see how that works. and it will be a test, i think, for him and the people that he's designated to be able to execute on his vision.

7:35 am
directly and i would advise my republican friends in congress and supporters around the country is just make sure that as we go forward, certain norms, certain institutional traditions don't get eroded because there's a reason they're in place. >> well, steve kroft is with us now. congratulations. >> charlie, gayle, norah? >> you spent how long with him on this occasion? >> probably about an hour and a half. >> how has he changed? we'll talk about trump and the rest of the staff later. you've seen him for a long time. >> 14 times you've interviewed him. >> i think that he says that he hasn't really changed. and i think he takes pride in the fact that the same person that is leaving the office is the same person that came in at least in terms of his beliefs. obviously he's been tested. i think he's got some battle scars.
7:36 am
>> and he says he's done the job better in the last two years than he did previously. >> that's understandable. >> exactly. >> what do we know about his conversations with the president-elect? >> almost nothing. he has been very tight-mouthed about it. and i really heard no leaks. i think that he's just -- that they've decided to keep it absolutely quiet except to talk about general areas. >> but he told you -- >> that's extraordinary. you have no leaks considering the sources you have, steve kroft. >> right. >> but i think it's interesting that the thing was so acrimonious, the campaign. is it forgive and forget or has he set a tone, the president, two days after saying, listen, he's now the leader and we want him to succeed because we want the country to succeed. >> i think given this last election, i think he believes it's really important to be respectful. and somebody had made this point to me. this is one thing i had heard
7:37 am
that they did talk a lot about the election in the meeting and that obama was interested in it because, you know, he won the election. i think for obama it's probably not a small thing. >> what he said about trump is true about him. >> right. >> you don't get to be president without knowing something. >> right. and it is a very small club and i think he's respecting the rules of that club and i think also he has as many people have speculated, has an interest in keeping a good relationship with donald trump so that president trump can pick up the phone and call him. >> as bush 43 did with him. >> yes. >> what does he regret? >> i don't think he regrets. he's said he's made some miscalculations. i think he underestimated -- he said he underestimated the divisions in the country and the deep political partisanship that he was going run into. he said he didn't think it was -- he didn't quite say he was a little naive, but it
7:38 am
turned out to be more than he expected. i think he was very disappointed in it, but hard to break through. >> you mentioned mitch mcconnell a couple of times. >> i didn't mean to cut you off, sorry. >> did he show you something in the oval office? >> he should me the original -- he showed me some things he's got on the wall, a lot of personal pictures and an original program from the march on washington, things like that, things that people had sent him and given to him, all of which is going with him to his house in colorado. am i saying that right? >> colorado, right. >> where is he going on january 20th, when that helicopter takes off? where is he going? >> the only thing he said is not going to chicago. my guess is it's warm weather. >> he wants to go some place warm for a while. >> and sleep. he's not setting an alarm. >> did he tell you that? >> he said he's not setting an alarm on the 21st no matter where he wakes up.

president-elect trump is suggesting again this morning that the intelligence community leaked an unverified report. he tweeted that the report is, quote, totally made up facts by sleazebag political operatives, probably released by intelligence even knowing there is no proof and never will be. my people will have a full report on hacking within 90 days. mr. trump's suggestion comes after the director of national intelligence, james clapper, released a statement saying he, quote, emphasized that this document is not a united states intelligence community product and that i do not believe the leaks came from within the intelligence community. >> 35-page report has not been verified by the fbi. it contains allegedly compromising information on donald trump. cbs news has confirmed that it was produced by a former british intelligence officer. his name is christopher steele. he works for a london-based investigative firm, orbis business intelligence. he was commission bid fusion gps, washington research
8:03 am
company, working on behalf of an unknown client. outgoing defense secretary ash carter has been openly critical of right elbow russian efforts to sow seeds of democratic instability. what do you make of hacking by the russians in terms of the american political process? >> well, i can't add anything to what intelligence community and the fbi have said on that. i think that is an aggression upon the united states that we have responded to, but i would say that's just the beginning. my guess is it's the floor and not the ceiling. >> in terms of our response? >> in terms of our response. >> what are the tools we have? >> our entire range. you don't have to limit yourself to a cyber response. in fact, we haven't yet. >> do you think it's getting his attention? >> i don't know. it certainly is intended to have
8:04 am
a tangible effect. whether it changes his behavior or not, we can't say. in its early days, we'll see. it's certainly intended to have a tangible effect. >> what did you take that meant? >> that the united states has a plan that is in effect and it's just beginning. there's much more to come and not just on the cyber area. it goes beyond that. >> right. beyond, too, the buildup in poland? >> right. >> really interesting. >> this is from the secretary of defense, who is planning it all. >> right. >> so he certainly knows. >> exactly. >> he knows. >> ash carter and charlie rose, going back to read that whole transcript. inspector general has launched an internal investigation of the hillary clinton probe. it will focus on whether the fbi followed correct procedures, looking into clinton's private e-mail server during the 2016 campaign. director james comey's comments on the investigation will also be evaluated. he reopened the case shortly before the election and clinton was cleared again. the inspector general is getting
8:05 am
involved after request from members of congress and the public. jerry sieb is chief commentator for "the wall street journal." let's start quickly with that. internal fbi investigation as to how the whole hillary clinton thing is handled. >> it guarantees that the most contentious issue of 2016 will be with us for a while longer and it's very initial because it's not clear that the inspector general can do anything with the findings he has, except criticize jim comey, the director of the fbi. but i do think it will pleez democr please democrats that somebody will take a look and render a judgment as to whether or not director comey acting appropriately. >> someone who may be tasked with investigating the trump administration. now we learned he was the one to briefed president-elect trump on these allegations about what the russians know about him. >> democrats are going to say if
8:06 am
you were public about your concerns about hillary clinton's e-mails why weren't you equally public about your concerns with russian hacking and potentially help to the trump campaign at the same time? he has some difficult questions to address. >> what do you make of the differences that donald trump seems to have with some of his appointees? this morning he said i like that they have their own opinions. i don't just want them to have mine. does that jive with how we see donald trump, how he operates? >> i think it's good for him to take that position. jim mattis talked about the tyranny of consensus, that it's bad to only hear what you want to hear from the people around you. >> yeah. >> it will help these people win senate confirmation. they want to hear that they have tougher views on russia than donald trump expressed. but it does raise the question, how do they get around a table and reach consensus? some of these issues are significant and it does open the question of whether there can be a trump administration unified view on russia.
8:07 am
>> are they trump loyalists? >> i think they're trump loyalists to the extent they're saying i can serve with this guy. i don't think they're advocating a particular trump view of the world. but i'm not sure there is a unified trump view of the world. >> the reality is that in the president, in the end, decides. you hope that he gets the best possible advice about all aspects of a particular decision. >> people say it is a problem when you have yes people around you. at least donald trump can say that's not what i've assembled here. >> doesn't it send a good message that he wants to hear other opinions? >> it does, but it raises a question of how do you reconcile not just slightly different views but significantly different views of russia and vladimir putputin? that will be interesting to watch. >> how do you think the confirmation hearings are going for rex tillerson so far? >> i think he is more hawkish on russia than donald trump but not as much as jim mattis.
8:08 am
i think there are doubts amongst some republican. i think it comes down to one person. senator marco rubio will determine whether he has a confirmation. >> he is the most vehement critic? >> he is, and not only on the floor but in the committee, and is very tough, as you know. it's not clear will he take that, make it a no vote or not. that's the key question on rex tillerson. >> one question quickly, the notion that donald trump says, look, you know, what's wrong with me liking the guy? i've got to negotiate with the guy. >> putin? vladimir putputin? >> i think that's a reasonable position. the problem is that people -- >> or he likes me, is what he said. >> if you look at what john mccain says, he says essentially -- i just disagree that we can become an ally of vladimir putin. he thinks to make russia strong you can make america weak. that's irreconcilable view.
8:09 am
that's a difference of opinion of how you maneuver around vladimir putin. >> gerry sieb, thank you. john dickerson speaks with vice president-elect mike pence and newt gingrich. no details on that 35-page document that claims to have compromising information on president-elect, but russia does have a history of gathering information for future use. they even have a word for that, calling it compramat. firsthand experience with the dirty tactics, elizabeth palmer is in moscow. >> reporter: this has to do with the scandal that erupted into the headlines in russia last spring. in this video of a secret affair, neither of the people in it knew they were being filmed by a tiny camera hidden in the
8:10 am
bedroom. on the right is mikhail former prime minister who became a vocal critic and this is his lover and political activist. how do you know it was the russian security services? >> i just don't imagine anyone else having the technical abilities to do this kind of complicated job. it was an operation. >> by the time the video was leaked to national television, the camera had been remove ed a its hiding place patched up. >> when the film came out, and the very first frame i saw and i saw myself and i saw myself in that bedroom, yeah, everything became clear and it all just came together. >> reporter: did you feel sick? >> i felt numb. >> reporter: the aim, she says, was to discredit her and the opposition. compramat is a tried and true tactic to get at anyone who
8:11 am
challenges the kremlin. >> reporter: secretary of state-elect rex tillerson, who has worked in russia as an oil man, says the values here, particularly the way politics is played out, are very different. would you agree? >> in any other country, i would have sued the tv channel. i would have filed a lawsuit against the secret service, even though it's very hard to prove they're behind it, of course. in a different country i would have done something about it. in russia, it's impossible. and pointless. >> reporter: and dangerous. natalia pelevina knows when they take on their foes inside or outside the country they play hardball and by their own rules. charlie? >> thanks, elizabeth. elizabeth palmer in moscow. cuba government is praising a major policy shift by the obama administration. ut states is ending the so-called wet foot, dry foot policy, dating back to 1995,

8:19 am
some clear health benefits from marijuana? >> not at all. this drug, cannabis, works on the system in our body which is an amazing system that we're just starting to scratch the surface of. it's important for all sorts of things, pain, mood, anxiety, even immune sungs, reproduction function, blood vessel, heart. i mean we're just figuring out. this is farm logically active. it's not surprising you can manipulate the system and reap the benefits. >> there are also risks. >> there are risks. i spoke to two of the authors. it's so hard to point out what the risks are. this is based on self-reporting. there are more than 100 knabb noid chemicals in cannabis and people take it all different sorts of was. the bottom line is their most concern was with the adolescents. >> i'm asking this. is it because of the effect it
8:20 am
has on your body or because it's viewed in some cases as a starter drug so you end up somewhere else in a much more severe drug? >> yeah. this is a million-dollar question. of course, the problem is figuring out if people who have that type of personality, they would have gone on anyway, or is this somehow a gateway to it? again, one of the problems is all this self-reporting. we don't know exactly what people are taking. there's different forms, different ways of taking and it's hard to do the science. >> i remember your "60 minutes report, you went to colorado and spent a lot of time looking at the recreational use. what do other states need to know? >> i think it's terrific what they're doing, gathering statistics. where are you at the beginning. they say other states should do that before they legalize it and find out what happens after, are there more problems. very specifically, there were problems with edibles. some of these looked like gummy bears for kids. they changed it so it didn't
