7:04 am
david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. given north korea's rapid progress in developing nuclear weapons, it is no longer possible to dismiss as mere bluster its threats to attack american cities and military bases. and this latest threat from the regime was very specific. sometime in mid-august north korea says it's planning to simultaneously launch four hwaso hwasong-12 rockets and will fly into the ocean just 30 to 40 kilometers outside the u.s. air base on guam. north korean state tv said the launch would be sent as a warning pending approval from kim jong-un. the threat came hours after u.s. defense secretary james mattis warned further action by north korea could lead to, quote, the end of its regime and the destruction of its people. he spoke while on route to tour the "uss kentucky" which by itself can carry 200 nuclear
7:05 am
warheads. north korea is estimated to have at most several dozen nuclear weapons. when "60 minutes" went aboard the "kentucky" brian frect described the destructive power it carries. >> the warheads are extremely powerful. >> compare them to the bomb that leveled hiroshima. >> much more powerful than that. >> reporter: up to 30 times more powerful and the "kentucky" is one of several ballistic missile submarines which on any given day are hiding in the world's ohs. >> if this boat were a country you'd be a nuclear power. >> that's true, yes, sir. >> in a tweet yesterday president trump claimed he has updated and modernized the u.s. nuclear arsenal saying it is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before. >> there have been no changes made to the u.s. nuclear arsenal. >> experts like john wolfstall disputed his claim that any changes have occurred since he
7:06 am
became commander in chief. >> some numbers have gone down. i view them as posturing and trying to project strength. >> reporter: with or without improvements the "kentucky" alone can carry enough nuclear weapons to annihilate north korea. there's no question who would win a conflict between the u.s. and north korea. the question is, can it be avoided? vlad. >> david martin, thank you very much. here is a look this morning from guam. the tiny american territory where 162,000 people are being directly threatened by north korea. but guam's governor says he's not worried about a missile attack because the u.s. military is defending the island. he estimates the chance of a strike at 1 million to 1. this morning, japan said it could help protect guam by shooting down any north korean missiles that fly over its territory. japan said any attack on u.s. si sends would threaten its own existence. >> president trump will meet with mike pence today at his new jersey golf club. pence and other top officials
7:07 am
added their own comments yesterday to the president's fire and fury warning. it turns out the specific language mr. trump used tuesday was not planned. major garrett is near the trump national golf club. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. let's just set the stage. it was the one and only encounter president trump had with white house reporters is vor s hngion.rackiioat advis korea would be the question and were prepared for the president's tough language. what they were not prepared for was his improvisational saber rattling. a presidential ultimatum. the kind that can change history. >> north korea best not make any more threats to the united states. they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. >> reporter: before president trump delivered that statement, he was in regular contact with chief of staff john kelly and his national security team was aware of the tone. the words, however, were the president's own.
7:08 am
they were clear the president was going to respond to north korea's threats following the sanctions with a strong message, white house press secretary sarah sanders said in a statement. the words were somewhat familiar used before during the campaign. >> we have a movement the likes of which this world has never seen before. >> you propel to victory a grassroots movement the likes of which the world, frankly, has never seen before. >> reporter: secretary of state rex tillerson tried to reassure edgy americans and allies during a refueling stop in guam. >> i think americans should sleep well at night, i have no concerns about this particular rhetoric over the last few days. >> reporter: later state department spokeswoman heather nauert insisted the administration was unified. >> whether it's the white house, the state department, the department of defense we are speaking with one voice. >> reporter: north korea is not the only national security challenge president trump faces.
7:09 am
afghanistan is another and in both instances the national security adviser h.r. mcmaster and the defense secretary general mattis are earning a more aggressive military posture. while chief strategist steve bannon is urging caution and trying to find a way to avoid conflict with the president's rhetoric this week, margaret, it's clear he's focused on north korea and forward leaning on the military side of that equation. >> major, thank you. north korea is showing further defiance to the united states. thousands of people hit the streets yesterday to protest the stiffer economic sanctions that the u.n. approved last weekend. ben tracy is watching it all from beijing. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, so north korea is now using president trump's fire and fury comments as well as those new u.n. sanctions to rally its own people. and that was on full display wednesday in north korea's capital. "chic simple." >> reporter: tens of thousands of people packed the main square of pyongyang for a mass rally
7:10 am
orchestrated by the north korean regime. speakers said the u.s. will face a retched fate while marchers carried signs that red let's become bullets and bombs defending kim jong-un. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> reporter: this man said i will become the nuclear warhead of icbm to smash down the u.s. mainland, the nest of evil. north korea has now launched more than a dozen missiles just this year. and continues to threaten to turn the capital of south korea into a sea of fire. today south korea's defense chief bowed strong retaliation if north korea continues to provoke an unusual warning against mere threats rather than an actual attack. russia has weighed in calling on the united states to remain calm and not provoke north korea to what russia calls dangerous actions. vlad. >> ben tracy in bay ying for us.
7:11 am
thank you, ben. there are new details this morning surrounding the fbi raid of one of paul manafort's homes. agents raided president trump's former campaign chairman's home two weeks ago. they were reportedly looking for evidence related to the special counsel's investigation into russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. manafort's spokesman says he has consistently cooperated with law enforcement and other serious inquiries and did so on this occasion, as well. julianna goldman is outside fbi headquarters in washington, d.c. julianna, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, it's a very aggressive move and another indication that mueller's investigation is heating up. as you mentioned, manafort's team says that he's been cooperating but this raid of his home indicates otherwise. formal prosecutors tell us that typically in white collar crime investigations lawyers negotiate a handing over of evidence. but the fact that they executed a search warrant means they felt they needed the element of
7:12 am
surprise. they didn't trust manafort not to destroy materials that could be relevant to the investigation. now, something else to consider, sources have told us that the special counsel is investigating manafort's business dealings and, again, typically in criminal investigations, prosecutors will try to flip witnesses up the chain of command and that could be what mueller is trying to do here, to squeeze manafort to pressure him to give up information on others in the campaign. the special counsel's office declined to comment. >> the state department expelled two cuban officials after u.s. diplomats suffered hearing loss while on the job in cuba. investigators are looking to see if the injuries were caused by acoustic devices placed in or around their hopes. some of the american dims had to cut their assignments short and the state department found out late last year. >> some of our people have had the option of leaving cuba as a result for medical reasons.
7:13 am
initially had they started reporting what i will just call symptoms, it took time to figure out what it was and this is still ongoing. >> security increased around the embassy and diplomatic homes in havana. cuba's foreign ministry said in february it launched an urgent investigation at the behest of the highest level of the cuban government. the preliminary hearing in the hazing death of a penn state student resumed this morning in pennsylvania. timothy piazza died in february after a fraternity event that involved heavy drinking. lawyers for 16 defendants want that thrown out. they argue the evidence does not warrant a trial. anna werner is at the centre county criminal court in bell fortunate and spoke with an attorney preparing to question a key prosecution witness. anna, good morning. >> reporter: preliminary hearings usually last just minutes, but this one is now in its fourth day and it actually began back in june. there are 16 defendants appearing at this hearing. each one of them trying to show
7:14 am
why he is not responsible for piazza's death. >> in joey's case charges should have never been filed. >> reporter: attorney william brennan represents joseph ems jr. facing a misdemeanor. prosecutors say ems can be seen on surveillance video striking timothy piazza hard in the abdomen while he was drunk and incapacitated but brennan says. >> joey makes what i would call awe cameo appearance and we presume that he may have tapped him on the torso like, hey, bud, wake up. that's not criminal. >> reporter: piazza would later die of a ruptured spleen among other injuries according to a pathologist. your client is on video. how damaging is that for him and your case? >> i believe it exculpates or tends to show the lack of criminality on joey's part. >> reporter: 18 members of the now shuttered beta theta pi fraternity have been charged. of the ten with misdemeanors, two waived their right to the
7:15 am
preliminary hearing. eight others were charged with involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault. the most severe charges. tom kline is the piazza family's attorney. >> some were responsible for the planning. some were responsible for the execution and some were responsible for the cover-up and some were responsible for one, two and three. >> reporter: piazza a sophomore was gravely injured during what prosecutors allege was a night of drunken hazing. the 19-year-old's blood alcohol content was estimated at roughly four times the legal limit. he fell down a flight of stairs and hit his head repeatedly often in view of his fraternity brothers. no one called for help until the following morning. >> we have a friend who's unconscious. he's -- hasn't moved probably need an ambulance. >> reporter: now, this hearing is supposed to last until friday. that is to give all of those defense attorneys a chance to cross-examine the lead investigator. but if the prosecutor decides to requestion that witness or there are new motions from any of
7:16 am
those defense attorneys, it could be a while before we find out if there's a trial in the case. >> anna, thank you. google is expected to hold a companywide meeting today after an engineer was fired for writing a controversial memo. the tech giant's ceo sundar will james damore criticized their diversity initiatives and speaking about the memo for the first time since his dismissal. john blackstone is outside google headquarters this morning. >> reporter: town halls are nothing new here at google but this one is expected to be anything but ordinary after days of scrutiny over this now controversial memo its author james damore broke his silence wednesday saying he actually wrote the memo during a long business trip to china. former google engineer james damore defended the controversial memo in a 45-minute interview with right
7:17 am
wing youtube personality stefan mol m molyneux. >> it was totally secretive and i heard things i definitely disagreed with in some of our programs. i had some discussions with people there but there was a lot of just shaming and, you know, no, you can't say that. that's sexist. >> reporter: the 28-year-old was thrust into the spotlight after his 3,000-word document titled "google's ideological echo chamber" became company. in it he questioned their diversity initiatives and argued differences in distributions of traits may in part explain why we don't have 50% representation in tech. pichai called the comments offensive and not okay? a lot of this came from me seeing some of the problems in our culture at google where a lot of people that weren't in this group just felt totally isolated and alienated.
7:18 am
>> reporter: a source within google says the meeting he attended was recorded. all employees are encouraged to express their views, but said the company doesn't support views across the line into sexism. >> no one high up ever came to me and said, no, don't do this. >> reporter: in a later interview damore said several employees were aware of the memo but that he didn't face pushback until it received national attention. >> it was only after it got viral that upper management started shaming me. >> reporter: in the interview he praised google as a dream job but he's now filed a complaint with the national labor relations board. that document obtained by the tech website gizmodo appears to claim that damore says he was n unfairly fired after addressing work-related issues. >> john, thank you. the first hurricane of the atlantic season slammed into
