7:03 am
select airports and airlines to make security changes that officially went into effect overnight. the new rules by the department of homeland security will prevent flyers from carrying on any electronic devices bigger than a smartphone in the cabin, and the items that must be checked is computers and lap hraups and cameras. officials say this new measure is not country-specific. nine different carriers will be affected by the electronics ban, all of which run non-stop flights into the united states. the new phezer wimeasure will a all airline passengers flying to specific airports regardless of the preclearance or airline status. senior administration officials
7:04 am
remain concerned over the targeting of commercial aviation including the smuggling of explosives inside consumer items. this video from february of last year shows the detonated laptop bomb departing from somalia. the new security proceeded calls will affect about 50 daily nonstop flights to the u.s. and the airlines will have 96 hours to comply or risk having the faa stop their flights into the country. >> thank you very much. our senior national security contributor joins us from washington. good morning. let's start with this. how unusual is this kind of restriction? what does it say to you? >> it says to me that the united states has credible intelligence of a plot to attack an airliner with the larger devices that must now be checked.
7:05 am
i think we can take that to the bank. >> if it's a credible threat, why are the airport being told you have 96 hours to comply, and why not make it immediate? >> because it doesn't sound to me like an imminent threat or that it's specific with regard to one country or one airline and it sounds like a general plot that we learned about, a plan to do something significant but not specific. >> but michael, the ban is specific in terms of airports and countries, so what does that tell you about the threat? >> the fact that it's focused on putting explosives into electronic devices and focused on airlines suggests al qaeda, but when you look at the countries it looks more like isis, particularly when you put turkey in there. at this point i don't think we know which group is behind this. it could be either one. >> michael at one point we
7:06 am
thought al qaeda suffered significant damage to its own strength and it seems to be coming back. >> charlie, that is a really good point. as we have been focused on isis for the last five years, al qaeda has rebounded. it has rebounded in yemen and it's rebounding in afghanistan and it is actually a growing problem in syria, and so it is a growing problem that we need to focus more on. >> in fact, american forces are able to retake not american forces but forces opposed to isis and able to run them out of raq raqqa, what happens to the terrorism front? >> two things happen, i think, charlie. one is isis becomes an insurgency, and it becomes a terrorists group in iraq and syria rather than owning territory and being an army. the other thing that happens is that there's more room to operate, and we will need to start focusing on them. >> former deputy of the cia,
7:07 am
thank you for your time, michael. fbi comey says he has no evidence to confirm president's claim of being wiretapped by president obama. the revelations came during yesterday's house intelligence hearing. chip reid is on top of the hill. >> reporter: the wiretapping accusations began with a series of tweets from trump, and both sides of the aisle say there is no evidence to back up the tweets and yesterday the fbi director agreed. >> i am not going to try and characterize the tweets themselves, and all i can tell you is we have no information that supports them. fbi director james comey denied allegations of trump being
7:08 am
wiretapped. >> i said the fbi and the department of justice have no information to support those tweets. >> and nsa rogers agreed. >> i have seen nothing on the nsa side that we engaged in any such activity or that anybody ever asked us to engage in such activity. >> comey confirmed the fbi had been investigating since july the russian interference into the campaign and whether trump associates coordinate with russian officials. >> this will include an assessment of whether any crimes were committed. >> he declined to answer questions more than 100 times. >> it's one of the subjects i can't comment on one way or another. >> and comey asked the committee
7:09 am
to understand his predicament. >> it's not fair to draw conclusions simply because i say i can't comment. >> and michael flynn, campaign foreign policy carter page, and one-time campaign chairman, paul manafort and roger stone, a long-time friend of president trump. republican committee chairman nunez urged director comey to speed up the investigation. >> there's a big gray cloud you put over people who have very important work to do to lead this country so the faster can you get to the bottom of this, it's going to be better for all americans. >> reporter: comey said he doesn't know how long the investigation will take. republicans on the committee grilled comey about leaks coming from within the intelligence community. and comey said he takes the leaks seriously but will not say whether the fbi is investigating. >> a lot of action on the hill today. in the next half hour, we for

thursday, nearly seven years to the day after president obama signed it into law. >> i am thrilled to be here in the great state of kentucky. >> reporter: in louisville last night president trump made no mention of the fbi investigation into russian contact s with his campaign. instead focusing all his political capital on winning thursday's key vote on the republican health care plan. >> remember, we will negotiate and it will go to the senate and back and forth. the end result is going to be wonderful. >> the white house spent all day in intense last-minute wrangling to sway skeptical conservatives threatening to bring down the bill, and the changes signed off on by the white house includes a freeze on medicaid expansion, and the ability to set work
7:12 am
requirements on able bodied adults on medicaid, and prohibits use of tax credits. >> the alternative is what you have, and what you have is nothing. >> the president chose kentucky because it's the home state of republican senator rand paul who is opposed to the bill and whose vote he will need. >> i happen to like, a lot, senator rand paul. i do. and i look forward to working with him so we can get this bill passed in some form. >> earlier in the day, senator paul stood firm in his opposition. >> my hope is it fails on thursday and that's when the true negotiations begin. >> reporter: while president trump says he has enough votes to get it through the house, and he will next have to focus on the senate and it's unlikely to make it through there without further changes. >> margaret, thanks. the president's eldest

7:14 am
burning fires to create a smoke screen and this is where the most intense fight something taking place around the old city. as they try to make a push iraqi forces try to push into that area where the grand mosque is. you can see the level of destruction all around, reflecting the intensity of the battle that is taking place here. it's essentially been a standoff in the last couple of days, and although there was movement toward the old city earlier, and this reflects how hard isis is pushing back. after six months of combat, trying to liberate this city, this is where the most intense battle is taking place right now, around the old city as iraqi forces try to continue to push into those neighborhoods and they are meeting fierce resistance for isis. for "cbs this morning," western mosul. >> charlie right in the middle of all the action in iraq. northern island party says rebel turned peacemaker

7:33 am
committee has sent me a letter asking me to preserve documents, and i'm doing so. >> how do you explain the fact that you said this quote about john podesta? i assume it's going to be in a barrel. >> because i wrote an extensive investigative piece on john podesta. the organized crime in russia and money laundering for the clinton administration. >> were you surprised when john podesta's e-mails came out which you seemed to predict ahead of time? were you surprised? >> no i wouldn't say i was surprised. there was an entire circle of clinton aides whose e-mails seemed to get into the mix here. but the inference that my now completely public exchange with a hack er lucifer 2.0 who may o may not be a russian agent somehow constitutes collusion is
7:34 am
not true based on either the facts or on the actual text which i released or on the timing. >> why are you talking to lucifer and julian assange? >> first of all, i wrote a long piece on breitbart news. it's entirely benign. it's the only exchange i've had with private tweets and direct messages. >> roger, do you see any hypocrisy here in terms of the outrage that the trump administration is feeling regarding the of a fisa warrant, then the leak of that information is a felony in itself. >> do you see anything that --
7:35 am
you've known donald trump a long time. both the head of the fbi, the national security adviser said yesterday that it's not true that president obama wiretapped donald trump at trump tower. yet, the white house is doubling down on that saying there's still more to come. do you think now is the time given the information for your friend, longtime friend, and you're a confidant to say, listen, i was wrong and i'm sorry? >> no, i don't. the people that said there were weapons of mass destruction and hussein had them. who lied about torture -- >> no, no, the fbi director was not involved in that. >> no the intelligence services did state as a group. >> do you think that americans should no longer trust recommendations from the intelligence community? >> since our intelligence community has not been politicized would be naive. >> do you believe the fbi -- do you believe that trump tower was under surveillance and was
7:36 am
wiretapped? >> i think it is certainly possible. i think we're going to find out. >> roger, it's now been revealed officially that you are under investigation for possibly colluding with the russians to meddle with this election. >> yes. >> are you here to say that you have no contact with the russians, that you've not been involved in trying with the russans? >> i've said that repeatedly. >> do you believe anybody on teobviously, paul manafort has been a friend of mine for eye a long time. an usher in my wedding. i don't know general flynn, i would give him the benefit of the doubt. carter page, never heard of this guy. >> where people say where there's smoke, there's fire, in this particular case, you say what? >> let me have my day in court. >> roger stone, thank you. >> glad to be here. ten of the hottest real

the auto industry could be reshaped by a repossession device for cars. special technology makes a vehicle impossible to start after the owner misses a payment. but federal regulators are asking questions about how the equipment is being used. anna werner explores the concerns about how the legal devices could hurt people who can least afford it. anna, good morning. >> good morning. well, imagine getting in your car and it won't start. but not because there's anything mechanically wrong with it, turns out the dealer you bought the car from has turned off. many dealers around the country say it's happened to them,
7:42 am
including the couple we got to in st. louis. >> reporter: willie conner needs a kidney transplant and gets dialysis five times a week. she needed a car but she and her husband didn't have a lot of money. commercials like this, car credit city -- >> guaranteed credit -- >> reporter: offering guaranteed credit sounded good. >> they made it easy. come on in, we'll give you a car, regarding of your credit. >> reporter: that dealership is what's known as a after payments of almost 29% interest. nearly six times the national average. >> but i had to get to dialysis. i have to get there, or i don't live. >> reporter: these are your grandkids. then one day in 2012, she came out of the treatment center and found the car wouldn't start. why? she says even though she had
7:43 am
told them she would be a few days late on the payment, the dealer had turned the car off. >> at dialysis of all places, cuts my car off. >> reporter:le how? with a device similar to this one. it's somethinged called a starter interrupter. technology that combined with gps tracking allows a dealer to remotely track the location of a car and then disable it from starting, as long as the car's not moving. conner was left stranded. what did that make you feel like? >> i can i was just done with everything. my health, my life, everything was a failure. >> the gps tracking device -- >> reporter: former car dealer michael fischer sells the devices he said they're needed because many default on those high-interest loans. >> it's a very risky business, i've been there. i've lost a lot of cars i can't think was possible. i could find the customer, i
7:44 am
just couldn't find the car. >> reporter: but there are no federal limits on how to disclose or use the devices and just four states have any regulations. and chris kukla says there are safety concerns. >> you're on the way to pick your kids up, stop at the store, suddenly you can't start your car. and kids are left alone at school. there are stories of families, a mom was trying to get a kid to the emergency room, they got out to the driveway and they couldn't start the car. >> reporter: even fischer said -- >> the dealer should at least know where the vehicle is when they're shutting it off. >> reporter: people who wind up with devices in their cars don't don't have any other option but to accept them. >> it's lower income consumers, folks with blemished credit, they really don't feel like they have an effective choice of whether to take these devices or not. >> reporter: and conner says for those who think it won't happen to them -- >> who knew?
7:45 am
you know, i didn't know this would happen to me. you know, you don't know until you've been there. >> now, willie conner told us she was unaware the device was there. but she admits there could have been some disclosure in the papers which she bought the car. the dealership sued the conners for the money they said they were owed. the lawsuit was dismissed. we reached out to the dealership where they bought the car, car credit city several times and told they weren't interested. at which will they hung up on me. >> she raises a good point, you don't know until you've been there. but from the business point of view, you know going in we could cut off your car if you don't pay the loan so we expect you to pay the loan. >> and some like michael fischer said they could repossess the car. the question is do you know when you get a car like this? and what it is? >> and that you're not getting

good morning to our viewers in the west. it is tuesday, march 21st, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including real-time reaction from the president's twitter account to the house intelligence committee hearing. and the fbi director's extraordinary fact check of a presidential tweet moments after it was sent. first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. select airports and airlines to make security changes. how unusual is this kind of restriction and what does it say to you? >> united states has credible intelligence of a plot to attack an airliner with the larger devices. i think we can take that to the bank. fbi director james comey says he has no information to support president trump's claim that he was wiretapped. >> do you believe that trump tower was under surveillance and was wiretapped? >> i think it is certainly
8:00 am
possible. when tom brady loses a jersey worth an estimated half a million bucks, you can bet your bottom dollar that there will be a team effort to find it. last week, president trump released his first budget. it featured a $54 billion increase in military spending and to pay for the spending, trump is cutting everything else. like the corporation for public broadcasting, but trump's a real estate developer. it was only a matter of time before he put up condos on sesame street. ♪ can you tell me how to get how to get to sesame street ♪ can't. it's gone. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and alex wagner. norah is off. the department of homeland security unveiled new security measures overnight in response to a potential terror threat against some flights to the

united states from the middle east and north africa. devices larger than a cell phone inside the cabin of commercial airliners are prohibited. >> devices that must be checked in luggage include cameras, i d ipads, electronic games and lap tops. the new security measures will affect 10 airports in eight different countries. >> fbi director james comey publicly acknowledged for the first time that the agency is investigating russian interference in the presidential election and whether trump associates coordinated with russian officials. the director said he would not comment on whose conduct is being examined because the investigation is ongoing. comey also repeatedly said there is no evidence to support president trump's claim that president obama wiretapped him. the president's official twitter account live tweeted during yesterday's hearing, democratic congressman jim himes readout one tweet. it said the nsa and fbi told
8:02 am
congress russia did not influence the electoral process. himes asked comey if the tweet was accurate. >> it's hard for me to react to that. let me understand, what the state of what we said is. we have offer nod opinion, have no view, have no information on potential impact because it's something we never looked at. >> so it's not too far of a logical leap to conclude that the assertion that you have told the congress that there was no influence on the electoral is process is not quite right? >> it certainly wasn't our intention to say that today because we don't have any information on that subject. >> comey confirmed the intelligence agency's findings that the russians wanted to hurt hillary clinton and help mr. trump. supreme court nominee neil gorsuch says legal abortion is the precedent of the high court that has been reaffirmed for years. he has been answering questions before the senate judiciary committee for about 90 minutes.

he is hoping to be confirmed to the successor to the late antonin scalia. jan crawford is overlooking the hearing. >> reporter: the hearing has been going on over an hour and the committee will keep judge gorsuch there. whether he will be a rubber stamp of president trump and anticipating that line of questioning, we saw the committee chairman, chuck grassley, republican, this morning ask judge gorsuch if he would, in fact, be independent of president trump. >> that's a softball, mr. chairman. i have no difficulty ruling for or against any party other than based on what the law, facts and particular case require. and i'm heartened by the support i have received from people who recognize that there's no such thing as a republican judge or a
8:04 am
democratic judge. we just have judges. >> reporter: the questioning will continue throughout the day and tomorrow. the committee is expected to vote on april 3rd. the full senate may vote before the recess on april 10th. but that's an ambitious timeline even if there's no controversy. >> jan, thanks. president trump welcomed iraq's prime minister to the white house for the first time since taking office. in the past, mr. trump said the united states should have taken iraq's oil. the country was included in his original temporary travel ban but now the two men will need to work together. margaret brennan spoke to the iraqi prime minister last night. she's at the white house with an interview you will see only on "cbs this morning." margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this was a high-stakes meeting. both leaders need each other to defeat isis and president trump has pledged to accelerate u.s. support. but the iraqi prime minister told mr. trump's calls to seize
8:05 am
iraqi oil are not helpful. did you tell him private today to please stop saying that? >> well, i did say -- i still tell him privately that iraqi oil is for iraqis. he seems to accept this. >> reporter: when the president of the united states says things like that, how difficult does it make it back home for you politically to work with the u.s.? >> well, it is very tough and very difficult. i think for a president or president-elect to say this, it brings up all these rumors that the u.s. is going to take the oil and things like that. that can endanger the relationship. but i think that the president understands very well nobody can take iraq oil from iraqis. >> reporter: within weeks, iraqi forces will recapture mosul, the city where isis leader declared his caliphate. 1,000 u.s. forces are providing support on the ground and from
8:06 am
the air. u.s. and iraq are now negotiating how many will stay. will you allow that number to remain after? >> we don't need that number in mosul. after that, i think we're going to draw down the forces to a level which is acceptable, just to perform training and logistical support. >> reporter: during their private meeting abadi thanked president trump from removing iraq from his second version of the temporary travel ban. >> at the end of the day, iraq was part of the fight against insurgents. to include iraq on the list, i found it unacceptable. so for the second round of the executive order, if iraq was included, i think we would have been forced to say something about it. >> reporter: you've been very aware of american politics and made a point about saying the importance of building bridges and not walls. what did you mean by that comment? >> a wall was built so many years ago but that collapsed.
8:07 am
it didn't succeed in partitioning people. >> reporter: the trump administration is helping abadi to drum up investment and raise aid money to cover the nearly $50 billion in damage caused by isis. now, abadi said he's confident iraqis can chase isis out of iraq. but we're in the white house to ultimately defeat it. that requires wiping them out of neighboring syria. charlie? >> margaret, thanks. secretary of defense mattis has said previously that the united states has no intent of seizing iraqi oil. >> i wonder which page everyone is on in the white house on that. >> you can hear more of her conversation with the iraqi prime minister today on the "cbs this morning" podcast and what happened during his meet iing wh president trump. find it on itunes and podkat app. jill schlesinger is in our

♪ in this morning's eye on money the i in this morning's eye on money, fueling the housing market, despite the recent interest rate hikes. existing home sales jumped to their highest levels since 2007. vintory levels fell to near record lows. jil schlesinger is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> what explains the discrepancy between the market, which seems hot and the inventory, which seems low? >> it's very difficult. the big key factor right now in this housing market has to do with inventory. this goes back to the early days after the financial crisis. two reasons for low inventory, meaning there's just not as many homes for sale as we would like.
8:14 am
one is that right after the crisis, a big bunch of institutional money, private investors, went out and gobbled up lots of available housing units. they kept those units. they didn't flip them. they kept them as rentals. the other factor is baby boomers are staying in their homes much longer than usual, at least historically. so now we've got low inventory levels. that's pushing up prices. that's bad news if you're looking to buy a house, as prices keep increasing. you don't have a lot of choices. >> we heard that the interest rates were going up last week, the mortgage rates. should we lock it in now? should we lock in our mortgages now? >> if you have run the numbers for your family and you know you've got your good down payment set aside, it works for you and it's time to buy a house, sure, lock in. do not lock in without knowing what you really have ahead of you. mortgage rates, historically, are still very low. i know we go back a year ago and say 3.6, 3.7. now it's 4.3rks, 4.4 and i'm

8:34 am
you say in your book, you want strong, shapely legs, toned derriere, crystal cuts all over your body. regardless of your age. ohio do were do that? >> you know, i attribute so many of my life and the structure of how i approach everything in my life in the same way of a ballet career. i think ballet has such an incredible discipline and structure. and motivating people to think of what they're doing in their lives as a journey. this is not a shot cut that we're doing to become a ballerina overflight. but it's about taking this journey and discovering what works for you. it took me my entire career, i think, to really understand how to take care of my body. to respect it. to understand that i'm an athlete, a long journey of figuring these things out and creating a version of a healthy image. >> you were told you were too brown, too old and your body wasn't so great for ballet
8:35 am
dancing? >> right. i've been told all of those things. for me, it was just getting myself into the best shape that i could but understanding it's okay to be different. >> what amazes me about you, you have had something in your brain and in your heart that made a difference. that's why you had the strength of will to plow ahead. >> yes, thank you. >> and you begin the book talking about not food, not exercise but mental strength. >> yes. that's a huge part of it. when you think of athletes, you think of those things. to be able to compete and go out there day after day. it's the same thing as a dancer. it lies with all of the pressure in, you know, what it is to be in a competitive field. i think it's so important to be mentally and emotionally prepared and strong. and i think every person can relate to that. but it's not just about physically, but believing in
8:36 am
yourself. feeling beautiful on the inside. and truly accepting who you are. >> great athletes have an understanding, they really do. because the nature of competition is so intense that you really have to have it in your heart and in your brain. tom brady, for example. >> yeah. >> i don't know anybody that could be a 39-year-old nfl quarterback unless they took care of themselves. >> right. and you see the way his life is. the way he eats and all of that, i think goes hand in hand with the mental strength and just having that structure and discipline from being an athlete. >> you talk about yourself being a shy withdrawn kid. but the minute you got on the dance floor, you touched the ballet bar, you knew this was for you. >> something changed. >> what was that transformation? back to charlie's point, i like that it really was your mind, your focus, your determination to do this. >> yeah. i think that being shy and introverted and coming from a household that did not support the nurture level of an athlete
8:37 am
or growing up in a six-kid home and struggling financially, it was really difficult for me to feel that i could express myself. and dance was the first time that something clicked in my mind that this is -- i think children have different ways of learning. so it's hard for me to put somebody there and say, i needed music. it was something that connected all of these things inside of me that made me a more intelligent person. >> but right now, woman looking at you right now, we just want your body. >> yeah. >> how did you get to this body? >> you know, it's been trial and error. as i young teenager which a lot of athletes go off on their own and start training and become professionals at a really young age. a 17-year-old in new york city, i absolutely had no idea how to take care of my body. my mom was a waitress. it was like i've got to fend for
8:38 am
myself. i've got to take care of myself. it took many years of discovering, you know, i'm not 13 years old anymore. i can't eat whatever i want. i went through that period of being told to lose weight. you know, i was rebelling. i was 19 years old. i would go and eat a box of krispy kremes i would go to red lobster and eat the cheddar busine biscuits. >> good is not the best. >> got it. >> i think it's understanding not to deprive yourself of anything without living a healthy lifestyle. >> it is an inspiring book as you are an inspiring figure on the stage. misty copeland, thank you for your time. >> i was just going to say -- >> guess what i won't have that body, but i'm so happy you do. >> we're going to all try, "ballerina body" goes on sale
