7:01 am
opener," your world in 90 seconds. there's no reason for this russian government advocate meeting with the president's son if it wasn't about the campaign and russia policy. >> donald jr. under fire for his meeting with a russian lawyer. >> there was nothing to it. it was a 20-minute meeting. they moved on. and i think in the end there's more questions on the democrat side than anywhere else. >> the president tweeting again, putin and i discussed forming an impenetrable cyber security unit. >> i'm sure president putin could be of enormous assistance in that effort since he's doing the hacking. visibility here was at zero. people were evacuating in both directions. >> scorching heat continues to power massive wildfires. >> this is even unbelievable to me. this is crazy. an open-ended cease-fire seems to be holing in southwest syria.
7:02 am
>> the u.s., jordan, and syria brokered the agreement. >> in iraq, a major milestone in the war against isis, the prime minister declaring victory in mosul. flames shooting into the night sky and london's popular camden market. >> dozens of firefighters battle the blaze. >> nashville, tennessee, a driver sideswipes a bicyclist and then just drives off. >> all that -- >> the collapse of a five-story building in northwestern tibet. no one was hurt. >> -- and all that matters. >> it can get a little windy at joint base andrews. when trump landed there, he noticed a marine's hat had blown away. decided to help him out but to no avail. >> -- on "cbs this morning." >> a mature lady was seen dancing and then flashing them. >> it was only awkward when the fans started throwing dollar bills at her. >> she was overcome by the
7:03 am
spirit of the game. she couldn't help it. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." president trump and his representatives denied for months that there was any link between russia and the trump campaign, but now donald trump jr. continue if i weres he and other campaign officials met with a russian lawyer who said she had information that could damage hillary clinton. >> trump jr., his brother-in-law jared kushner, and paul manafort met at trump tower in unit of last year with attorney natalia veselnitskaya. she is said to have ties to russia's government. >> trump junior said he believed he was meeting with an individual i was told might have information helpful to the campaign. jeff pegues has new details on that meeting, but the white house says the president knew
7:04 am
nothing about it. good morning. >> reporter: the trump administration said on multiple occasions it never had any contact with russians trying to med until the election, but according to "the new york times," the pretext for that meeting contradicts those statements because it was reportedly set up around alleged damaging information around hillary clinton's campaign. donald trump jr. claims he didn't know who he would be meeting at the june 9th sit-down at trump tower but he asked the campaign's chairman and a top adviser to be there. the woman they met was natalia veselnitskaya, a russian lawyer with possible ties to the kremlin. in a statement, trump jr. says veselnitskaya offered information on individuals connected to russia who were funding the democratic national committee and supporting mrs. chin clinton. he added that it quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information. trump junior claims she then changed subjects to russian adoption and u.s. sanctions on russian human rights abusers which he says was her true agenda all along.
7:05 am
the meeting was arranged at the request of rob goldstone, a publicist who represents a russian music star, emin agalarov. emin's father is a billionaire oligarch. >> moscow is going to get hotter. >> he helped bring trump's 2013 miss universe pageant to moscow. emin's music video starred donald trump in his signature boardroom. >> you're fired. >> donald trump won a landslide election. >> in january mike pence flatly denied campaign connections to the russians. did any adviser or anybody in the trump campaign have any contact with the russians who were trying to med until the election? >> oh, of course not. >> reporter: but on sunday democratic congressman adam schiff questioned why top trump advisers were in the meeting. >> there's no reason for this russian government advocate to be meeting with paul manafort or
7:06 am
with mr. kushner or with the president's son if it wasn't about the campaign and russia policy. >> reporter: white house chief of staff reince priebus claimed democratic operatives were behind it. >> it seems to be on the end of the trump individuals, a big nothing burger, but may spin out of control for the dnc and the democrats. >> and the democrats say they had nothing do with that meeting. the new information comes in the midst of the ongoing investigation which is trying to determine whether other trump campaign representatives knew they were being used or whether they were unwittingly being manipulated b. norah. >> all right, jeff. thanks. president trump says he wants to move forward and work constructively with russia after meeting with president vladimir putin. he questioned putin on meddling and negotiated a cease-fire in syria. some members of congress objected when the president tweeted, "putin and i discussed forming an impenetrable cyber
7:07 am
security unit so that election hacking and many other negative things will be guarded." julianna goldman is at the white house where the president now says that partnership may not be a good idea. what's behind the change? julianna, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president trump says he wants to focus on areas where the u.s. and russia can work together like cyber security but now he's under fire from both democrats and republicans. appearing to take sides with russia over his own intelligence agencies. >> president trump raised a directive to president putin. >> reporter: secretary of state rex tillerson on sunday pushed back against critics trying to ease concerns that president trump didn't challenge the russian president on their meddling in the 2016 elections. >> the point was made that this is an issue that has the american people quite concerned. >> reporter: with the russian government saying mr. trump accepted putin's denial over the weekend, white house surrogates tried to play cleanup. >> president trump knows that
7:08 am
they meddled, president putin knows he meddled, but they're not going to admit it. >> reporter: the president defended himself on twitter explaining that pew tip vie hemally denied that his country interfered in the election and he's already given his opinion. mr. trump added, "now it's time to move forward and working constructively with russia." >> yes, it's time to move forward, but there has to be a price to pay. >> reporter: the olive branch to the kremlin angered some republicans who also ridiculed the president's suggestion that the u.s. and moscow may form a cyber security unit. >> this is like any other strategic alliance. >> reporter: but after the president touted the possible partnership on twitter, mr. trump said there was a discussion but that doesn't mean he thinks it can happen. senator marco rubio tweeted that partnering with putin on a cyber security unit is akin to parer inning with assad on a chemical weapons unit. >> to forgive and forget when it comes to putin regarding cyber attacks is to empower putin.
7:09 am
>> reporter: for now it's the white house's word against putin's. president trump did not hold a customer news conference at the end of the g-20 summit so he didn't answer any questions about his meeting with russia's president. charlie? >> thanks, julianna. senior cbs correspondent michael morrell was a deputy director and acting director of the cia during the campaign, supported hillary clinton for president. he's with us from washington. michael, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> we know it's not unusual to collect opposition research. we know on this case, though, this was a layer who claimed to have some connection with the russian government. what's the significance from a national security perspective? >> charlie, i think it is highly inappropriate for an american campaign to meet with a foreign official, whether that foreign official is connected to a government or not because it allows a foreign national to potentially influence the outcome of an election. so the meeting should never have
7:10 am
happened. that's one issue. the second issue is this is the second time, multiple times now, where jared kushner has not reported a meeting with a foreign official on his form to get his security clearance. was that a mistake or was that intentional? and then third i'd say that there was no collusion that happened in this meeting, but the fact that they were willing to do the meeting suggests to me that a willingness to collude, and that's what bob mueller is going to have to dig into. >> i'm not a lawyer. i don't think it's illegal, but it certainly shows a willingness to collude. >> senator mccain just said, we heard him say, it's time to move forward with the russian election meddling but there should be a price to pay. do you agree? if so, what is the price to be paid? >> my biggest concern in the trump/putin meeting was a
7:11 am
willingness to move forward without any accounting for what the russianings did. it's very important that putin pay a price for what he did so it will deter him going forward. i think that's what senator mccain was talking about and i agree with him completely. there's got to be a deterrence going forward so putin does not do this again. >> what's that price? what is it? >> i think the price is what the u.s. senate has passed overwhelmingly, which is additional sanctions on russia. the trump white house opposes those additional sanctions, but i think that's what's required to get putin's attention. >> i want to turn to isis too because we know iraqi troops are celebrating in mosul this morning. their government says it has reclaimed iraq's second largest city from isis. we saw these soldiers waving iraqi flags and holding the isis flag essentially upside down. we know there's some pockets of resistance that remain, but iraq's prime minister was seen walking through the streets this morning.
7:12 am
they took control over this what that's been under the control of isis for three years. what's the significance? >> it's significant we have regained mosul. this was the big symbolic victory for isis when they took it. but nobody should think that this fight is over. eliminating the caliphate does not mean victory for us. the fight will go on. they will become a terrorist group, an insurgent group. there are still thousands of them in iraq. they will have to be rooted out. and importantly, the political situation in iraq is going to need to be resolved. the sunnis are going to have to have a sense of ownership in the future of their country, or they're going to continue to support extremist groups. and also the baghdad government is going to have to face the kurds who want political independence. the political part of this is going to get much hardener the months ahead. >> michael morrell, thank you very much.
7:13 am
the cease-fire brokered by the united states and russia appears to be holding this morning in southwest syria. president trump and president putin agreed on the deal during last week's g-20 summit in germany. the truce between the syrian government and rebel forces covers the country's southernmost provinces. shortly after that agreement went into effect on sunday, mr. trump tweeted that the cease-fire can save lives. nearly 8,000 people evacuated from their homes in california many morning as dry conditions fuel more than a dozen wildfires. a fire burning north of sacramento led to a state of emergency. in santa barbara county, the wittier fire has burned 7800 acres. more than 85 active wildfires are burning across the west. that includes at least 15 in california. mireya villarreal is in santa barbara. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you're looking at the burnt out shell of a jeep. it was left abandoned on the road and was demolished by the whittier fire.
7:14 am
the roof is caved in. the tires were incinerated. up here you can see the glass is actually melted onto the hood. and there are these pieces of l aluminum everywhere. this fire forced 3,500 people from their hopes and up the road a daring rescue happened where dozens of campers were saved. it's still too dangerous for us to go inside there. there's no end in sight for the whittier fire which started saturday afternoon at the peak of the weekend's heat wave when temperatures hit 110 degrees. at least 20 structures have been lost on both sides of the major highway which is expected to remain closed for days. >> the fire is burning in an area that hasn't burned in probably 60 years. >> reporter: this time-lapse fire shows the fire moving up a mountain peak until it nearly reached a camera recording it. some 200 people were evacuated from campground in the fire's
7:15 am
path in addition to 80 children who are trapped in a camp barracks saturday. the incident commander led the rescue efforts. >> the road to the camp was compromised on both sides, oak trees fall across the road. >> reporter: firefighters huddled with the children for hours until it was safe enough to transport them out of the camp and back to their parents. was there a moment that you said, i'm really nervous about these kids? >> you knowing it's a waiting game, right. i was confident in our firefighters to reach them. i wasn't confident about the fact that we would be able to get them out in a timely manner. >> reporter: the state is dealing with more than a dozen fires. about 36 miles northeast of the whittier fire the alamo fire has charred so far 20,000 acres and north of sacramento the wall fire is threatening more than 5,000 structures. there are about 5,000 firefighters across the state that are still battling fires

the piazzas in may, they say their son's fraternity brothers treated him like a rag doll. >> it was stunning to see the behavior of these men in this courtroom. i saw the defendants during resayses smiling, joking, kidding, and clearly just having a good old fraternity time. >> reporter: former fraternity brother joseph ems is facing a reckless endangerment charge. he's accused of striking piazza in the abdomen. his attorney says the surveillance video does not support that claim. >> the videotape that was supposed to be the supporting evidence against him in my opinion falls flat. this is a tragic horrible situation this young man died, but nobody knew that in real time. >> reporter: brennan said his client joseph ems did not participate in any sort of frat reunion outside the courthouse last month. he also says he plans to ask for a dismissal. gayle?

7:43 am
some personal information, then send $1,500 in fees to get up to 0000,000 in grant money. in grant money. >> the person i was corresponding with that i thought was m f had vouched for this foundation, and i believed her. >> reporter: so drummond wired the $1,500 to florida and then waited for the delivery driver like the one shown on facebook to deliver her $100,000 in cash, but -- >> they never came. >> reporter: and when she tracked down her friend boyd by phone -- >> i said, shellie, it wasn't me. you got scammed. >> reporter: turned out she got hack and lock heard out when an quickly reached out to contact family and friends. >> do not send anything and delight yourself off that page because it's not me. >> reporter: emma fletcher is

with the better business bureau. >> they're capturing the trust you have in this person and using it for their own gain. >> reporter: we wondered if the scammer was still active. we set up a facebook page and contacted her. she said she got a $50,000 grant. she wasn't alone and we wouldn't have to pay it back. >> is that typical of what you see happening? >> well, once you show an interest, you know, they're going to go in for the kill. >> reporter: and it wasn't just the fake deborah boyd account. we found what appeared to be a network of face facebook profiles offering grants from $50,000 to $1 million all while assuring us it wasn't a scam. swear to god, one said. but those photos of the agents, a quick search using google images turned up the truth.
7:45 am
the photos are real, but those people don't offer grants. one is a real estate agent from vermont, the other a professor at mit. so if those aren't the real people, who's really running those facebook accounts? >> what this website is an ip tracker. >> reporter: meet computer expert gary milliefsky. >> they're allowing us to track them. >> we got the scammers to click on it and lo and behold -- >> there we ro r. now we're in nigeria. >> that's right. >> the russians use malware, chinese use malware. >> reporter: but if we were able to track them, what about facebook? the company told us it has a
7:46 am

8:04 am
most americans would be thinking this morning, how is it possible that they could leave without doing this? >> in fact, while they were gone last week on this july 4th recess, a number of republican senators heard from their constituents, making the repeal and replace even harder. >> even more difficult. you now have as many as 10 republican senators saying they've got issues with it, concerns that they can't support. >> so, therefore, how likely is it that mcconnell will turn to the democrats? >> well, it's becoming increasingly likely that that could happen. i think we're looking at another week's worth of work among republicans to try to come up with a plan. they're waiting for the latest scorekeeping report to come in with from the congressional budget office which may come in friday. he's working with republicans to see if there's any other possible way to get 50 of them to hold together on a plan. ted cruz has more ideas that are conservative, that upsets moderates and some in the middle. if he can somehow pull a rabbit out of a hat and make it happen this week, that may -- >> they're worried about what it

8:07 am
generate -- >> absolutely. they were ready to go with that and still eager to work with them on that. >> both sides say they want the bill. we'll see what happens. >> yes. >> thank you, ed o'keefe. amazon is trying to re-create the black friday shopping experience this summer with 30 deals that start tonight. >> announcer:s
