anthony scaramucci's war on leaks exposes inside the white house. how the hunt for leakers may create new problems. plus angelina jolie's health struggles. revealing she suffered from bell's palsy. how she came back from the facial paralysis. first, here's today's eye opener, 8:00. the deadly accident at one of the country's largest state fairs. passengers were thrown into the air last night. >> officials say that the fair will open today as scheduled. but the rides will be closed until they're reinspected for safety. president trump's sudden ban on transgender service members
triggered protests on both coasts. the heads of all four military branches requested a delay in the obama-era policy for the decision caught washington by surprise. it is president trump's own senior staff who are to blame for making damaging information public. that's according to president trump's new communications chief. the victim is 39-year-old christie of utah. authorities were seen escorting a number of people off the ship. firefighters dealt with a car that's blocking their way. >> hope these guys make it into the calendar this year too. >> something tells me they'll make it into the calendar, nora, you can tell they have abs. >> what do we have going on here? >> adrian beltre that was on deck but wanted a better deck. >> second base umpire didn't want him out behind the plate. go back to the on circle. he moves the circle. >> that is one of the strangest things i've seen. that's an all-timer right there.
i'm charlie rose with gayle king and nora o'donnell. investigators in ohio are looking into the cause of a deadly malfunction last night at the state fair in columbus a warning, the images are disturbing. >> witness video captures a moment the ride called fireball began to break apart and come crashing down. passengers were tossed in the air. one person was killed here, seven others were hurt. and two of them are still in critical condition at this hour. officials at the fair say multiple inspections raised no warning signs, all rides are now shutting down, pending further safety checks. president trump's decision to ban transgender troops is drawing strong criticism. the president announced the move yesterday on twitter. now it seemed to catch washington by surprise. major garrett asked white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders about the flat-foot the response. >> why was the pentagon caught so surprised this morning by the president's tweets on this had?
>> as i said before that the president's national security team was part of this consultation. you mentioned yourself that there have been ongoing conversations. >> but about this one smaller issue, not a whole ban. >> when the president made the decision yesterday, the secretary of defense was immediately informed, as were the rest of the national security team that has been part of this ongoing conversation. >> but you can't answer the question of what's going to happen to transgenders who are in the military now. shouldn't you have been able to answer that basic question with a policy of this magnitude? >> sometimes you have to make decisions and once he made a decision, he didn't feel it was necessary to hold that decision. and they're going to work together with the department of defense to lawfulfully implement it. >> sanders offered no timeline for when the policy will go into effect. >> reporter: the new white house communication director has become the focus of the battle against leaks. anthony scaramucci's financial disclosure appeared on politico's website.
it shows his assets are worth $85 million, also potential conflicts of interest. scaramucci tweeted in response he will be contacting the fbi and the justice department. >> his tweet ended with a twitter handle of white house chief of staff reince priebus. some thought that meant scaramucci blamed priebus. he later deleted the tweet. if priebus wants to explain that he's not the leaker, he can do this. this is important to point out, financial disclosure forms are actually public information that can be requested by anyone, in fact, anybody that serves in the government whether you're a senator, lawmaker, you're supposed to submit these because you're working for the tax payers and you have to make sure there isn't a conflict of interest. >> standard policy. >> how does it leak? >> it's foot in leak. it's public information if it's requested. >> cbs news chief washington correspondent john dickerson joins us now from washington. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what do you make of the
campaign? -- what is it? >> well, you know, like much in life, the tighter you squeeze on something, the less you may have. the problem with leak investigations in all past white houses is that it clamps down on people inside of the white house. it creates an atmosphere of a little bit of terror, you get rid of people who are, who are leaking, it makes everybody kind of look over their shoulder. and it's thauchb leaks are the sign of a white house that's not operating in a healthy way. why do people leak? i'm talking here about harmless leaks, not national security leaks which we'll talk about later. harmless leak are the result of a process that doesn't work. people feel like they're not being heard. opinions aring did discarded. things are happen to their colleagues that irritate them or seem like they're not fair or disloyal. and that is hard to fix by clamping down. white houses are healthy when people are all working for a common purpose. but if they see that it's all
about self-preservation, or that people can make end runs around the process, then they leak. and so, it's really harder to fix than by just firing people or threatening to fire people. >> john, shouldn't we be clear, leaks about personnel policy in this game of thrones style stuff that's going on inside the white house is not illegal. >> no, it's not illegal. it's not illegal at all. it happens to white houses and going, you know, both republicans and democrats, jimmy carter had a terrible problem with leaks, and his chief of staff threatened to do exactly what anthony scaramucci is doing, and it doesn't really work. also for this other crucial reason, white houses need leaks. they need relationships with reporters to flow things out there without making them official to take care of stories that may look bad, but need explanation off the record. they need a conduit of information with reporters. those pathways then are used by people who are disgruntled bay process that doesn't work to leak information that again as you pointed out is not illegal,
but is just inconvenient. but here's another important thing, i've been reporting on health care, republicans working on health care right now are talking not about leaks from the white house, they're talking about things that have come out of the president's own mouth, distracting his agenda. what he said to the boy scouts. what he's doing to jeff sessions which republicans on the hill are scratching their head about. why he's trying to lead him to the end of the gangplank there. those are things not coming from leaks. >> now, cbs news has learned that justice department plans to announce an investigation to the leaking of classified information. how do you see that playing out considering the public drug rather that donald trump is giving of jeff sessions? >> well, in a sense, it may be the way that this gets settled down. again, it's amazing how confused republicans are who were allies of jeff sessions who the president to do well are by this public kind of situation that's emerged. but jeff sessions has been looking into leaks. these are the illegal leaks. these are things of classified information, he's been doing
this far while. he mentioned it in his congressional testimony. they've charged somebody. but, this could be a way, if the justice department does something publicly, the president could take an off-ramp and say well, now they're taking care of this thing, everything's okay. it's back on track. and i'll move on. but, that's if he really wants his attorney general to stay and we're not sure whether that's the case or not. >> john, thanks so much. is now available in paperback. >> and may we say it's a very good read. thank you, john. the justice department is cracking down on sanctuary cities. doj announced this week it will withhold grant money from these cities unless they give federal immigration authorities access to jails. department wants to know in advance when undocumented immigrants will be released and at least one city is fighting back on this. the denver city council is reportedly considering a proposal to keep federal officials in the dark.
gary peterson looks at both sides of this confrontation. >> reporter: this was an arrest by i.c.e. agents at the front door of denver's courthouse. the illegal immigrant with a felony conviction in his background was wrestled into custody. he has since been deported. >> you hurt him. >> reporter: showdowns like these say denver officials are a risk to public safety. denver's mayor michael hancock asked i.c.e. to stop making arrests at the city courthouse. >> we want people to trust the judicial system. and we need them to show up. >> reporter: like schools, churches, and hospitals, he wants the courthouse designated as a sensitive location. which would prevent agents from arresting immigrants there. i.c.e. refused his request. hancock says, undocumented immigrants without any criminal history are now avoiding the courthouse. at least nine cases of domestic violence have been dropped when victims told authorities they
were afraid to come to the courthouse for fear of being arrested by i.c.e. >> when witnesses and victims of crime are not showing up to, you know, testify, now we cannot pursue the individuals who have perpetrated a crime. now how does that make us more safe? >> the city and county of denver will not kroorpt with the criminal alien program. >> reporter: he overseas agents for i.c.e. >> by not turning criminal aliens, they're putting my officers and the community at risk. >> reporter: he says denver isn't cooperating with i.c.e. because denver is not alerting the agency when it has a violator in custody. >> are you from i.c.e.? >> yes, sir. >> reporter: i.c.e. agents check public records for court appearance and agents must go to the courthouse or else to homes or workplaces at much higher risk to themselves and the community. >> they are beaten up, caught up in fights, scuffles. >> reporter: and you feel like these things are basically avoidable. >> absolutely avoidable. >> reporter: denver has gone a
step further, starting a program aimed at protecting undocumented immigrants with lesser violations. those with minor traffic offenses are now allowed to send in their plea by mail. so they can avoid going to the courthouse. that's important says this man who says he was detained and was at risk of deportation after a minor traffic stop. >> made me feel like my life just came crashing down. >> reporter: he asked us not to use his name. he says in his community, frightened people now go out only when necessary, like getting to work. >> a lot feel like thigh need to be hiding. otherwise that just creates a target. >> reporter: you feel hunted. >> yes. >> reporter: but, says i.c.e., they are only doing their best to uphold the law. >> it's not hunting, it's doing our job. >> reporter: for cbs this morning, barry peterson in denver. >> thank you, barry. angelina jolie reveals her

♪ ♪ angelina joely is opening up about her latest health struggles for the first time. for september's issue, the hollywood star reveals she was diagnosed with bell's palsy in 2016. the condition is a temporary facial paralysis. it affects about 40,000 americans each year. the actress says she has now recovered. jolie said quote, sometimes women in families put themselves
last until it manifests itself in their own health. our dr. david joins us from los angeles. good morning. so what are some of the causes of bell's palsy? >> well, bell's palsy is a case of the hole not being big enough. nerve comes off the brain to a small hole in the skull, and when it gets inflamed, it's function is compromised. and predominantly, we think viral infections. >> ank flee, david says that acupuncture helped her recover. is that a common way to treat it? and are there other methods? >> well, most of the time, it resolves on it's own. three to four weeks, sometimes six months. you can give steroids or anti-virals which can probably shorten the der ration. unfortunately it didn't work, acupuncture. time itself is the great healer. >> how long does it take? does it vary among individuals.
>> varies. first described in the 1820s by a scottish surgeon whose last name was bell. sometimes two to three weeks, and sometimes several months. that inflammation, the nerves starts working in most cases. >> in the interview, she says it was caused by stress. is that one of the causes? >> certainly when you're stressed, viruss can come out. you can get shingles or reoccurrence of chicken pox when you're stressed. there may be an association of viruses and stress, it's hard to know. this is a common disorder, bell's palsy. >> are there long-term effects? >> in a very small number of people, the nerve won't regain it's former function, and then things like toxin or surgery can help in this cases, but it almost 90% of cases, there's full recovery. >> i have heard too, back to nora's ninety stress is a very big factor. are you saying that stress is not the most common cause? >> well stress itself doesn't cause bell's palsy.
what we think is it's a viral infection of the nerve coming through that hole in the skull. but, can stress lower your resistance to viruss? potentially. >> david, this is off the wall and not part of this conversation, but -- >> uh-oh. >> i know. exactly. i was listening this morning to the bbc on the radio, and they were talking about a medical journal in britain, which had said that the idea of taking -- by taking medicine and not taking all of the pills, antibodies, for example, is no longer necessarily good advice. >> well, it's a big debate. you know, among doctors now. and in the scientific literature, whether you should complete an entire course of antibiotics. say i prescribe you a week of a zpac, and after three, four days are you better? do you have to do the next three day? we thought you want to kill all the bacteria and get resistance if you don't, but in this case, it's debatable. and so there's data on both sides. >> all right.
thank you, david. >> always good to see you, thanks so much. >> good to see you guys. >> we have a special book containing the signatures of some of the most profound poets in the united states, alan ginsburg for one, paul simon for another. also wrote their names in the bock. remember her name, will soon add her name to the list. there she is on the left. she's in studio with a library of congress. karla hayden will be right back. she's in the library of congress. we'll be right back. and with panera catering, more for your event. panera. food as it should be. over the course of 9 days sthe walks 26.2 miles,. that's a marathon. because he chooses to walk whenever he can. and he does it with support from dr. scholl's. only dr. scholl's has massaging gel insoles that provide all-day comfort to keep him feeling more energized. so he even has the energy to take the long way home. keep it up, steve!

and answer some set questions about a poem can have a chilling effect. but when you're just reading a poem it's a voice on a page saying come here. this is real. this has happened. this is how i felt. and it's hard not to feel welcomed into that kind of encounter. also, it's hard not to recognize some aspects of yourself or your own sense of experience. >> tracy, you won the pulitzer prize for poetry in 2002, and your work -- your book "life on mars" has been described to make people cry. the book was written in 2011 when the pulitzer 2012. it was many of the poems about your father floyd williams. a black man who grew up in precivil rights alabama and went to work on the hubbell telescope. >> yeah. in that case, the poems allowed me to reimagine my father, who
had passed away. and to go back to moments when we were together when he was real and in the world. the poems closed some of the distance that death had opened up. i think poems are good at closing all kinds of distance and making us feel like we have come into contact with something. >> why did you become a poet? >> i loved what poems did for me as a reader. even as a child i loved the sound of language and the sense of surprise that poems could inspire, you know. a good poem teaches you to look at the ordinary world and feels something new in it. it feels like a super power almost. >> it lead you to meet the librarian of congress. >> i met her through her words and i said, oh, poetry. that's what i wanted to do with the position and making it available and relatable to
