5:04 am
u.s. presidential election last year and the alleged links between trump's former campaign manager paul manafort and russia were fabricated. major garrett is traveling with the president. major, good morning. >> good morning. the operative word for president trump during his time here at the asia economic summit, no. no direct talks with russian president vladimir putin and no meeting with any other head of state here and no discernible progress on one-on-one trade deals meant to replace the multinational transpacific partnership mr. trump withdrew the united states from earlier this year. the president and putin did have their casual encounter for the economic and security talks. the u.s. and russia did release a joint statement on syria and it did allow plans for a new constitution and the political settlement ones like the obama
5:05 am
administration and for their part the russians did all of the talking releasing news of the statement and text hours before the white house. aboard air force one on his flight from here to the vietnamese capital of hanoi, the president told reporters he did ask putin if he ordered meddling in the 2016 u.s. election. he said he didn't meddle. i asked him again. you can only ask so many times. i asked him again. he did not do what they are saying he d the president said, adding that putin is very insulted by it which is not a good thing for our country. one of the reasons mr. trump did not meet with other heads of state as many of them were involved with their own conversations of putting together a successor to the transpacific partnership which means if those talks are successful, that deal designed to be an economic counter weight to china, if it's achieved, will not include the united states. anthony? >> major garrett in da nang, vietnam, thanks. alabama's republican senate candidate is fighting back against allegations of sexual
5:06 am
misconduct. four women told "the washington post" that retired judge roy moore pursued them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. one of them was 14 at the time. all four have confirmed their stories to cbs news. moore angrily rejected calls yesterday to abandon his campaign which could have national implications. paula reid is following the story and she's in our washington studio. good morning. >> good morning. roy moore is running in a special election next month for the seat of former senator jeff sessions who is now attorney general. they currently hold a 52-48 majority in the senate and this was supposed to be an easy win for the gop, but these allegations have many of moore's supporters second guessing their endorsements. >> these allegations are completely false and misleading. >> reporter: with pressure mounting on roy moore to step aside in his allegations of sexual misconduct, alabama's republican candidate for senate
5:07 am
gave his side of the story. >> i believe they're politically motivated. i believe they're brought on to stop a very successful campaign and that's what they're doing. >> moore said he dated a lot of young ladies upon his return of military service and moore touched her inappropriately when she was 14 years old. >> i never talked to her. never had any contact with her. >> moore admits he remembers the other two women, gloria weser gibson and denies going out on datesers on giving them alcohol. after roy's interview with sean hannity, senators mike leigh and steve danes rescinded their endorsements and the committee stopped raising money for roy moore. on the ground reactions were mixed. >> it's very disgusting that a grown man would take advantage of a child. >> i believe someone started this, whether it's true or not, just to burn his chances of being elected. >> ed henry criticized moore's
5:08 am
accusers and said it should be they that should be prosecuted. henry told a local newspaper, if they believe this man is predatory they are guilty of allowing him to exist for 40 years. jim zeigler defended moore by invoking the bible, mary was a teenager when joseph was an adult carpenter. they became parent of jesus. there is nothing immoral or w l illegal here. >> if these allegations are true, judge moore will do the right thing and step aside. >> the worry for republicans now is that this could open the door for a democratic win in deep red alabama. it's too late to take moore's name off the ballot, but they could try to run someone else as a write-in candidate. that's always risky especially since moore is unwilling to drop out at this point. alex? >> paula reid in washington, thanks, paula. there are several political issues brewing and for some
5:09 am
perspective on all of them we turn to ed o'keefe, a reporter for "the washington post kw" an cbs news contributor. let's start with roy moore. republicans have not been a fan of roy moore for a while now. is there any recourse at this point to get him off the ballot? >> there's really not much that republicans outside of alabama and do at this point to stop moore from remaining on the ballot and remaining a candidate and potentially winning the election. at some point if he were to win they might be able to try censuring or expelling once he's seated. it's in the hands of republicans if they ask him to step down or encourage him to run for somebody else. >> if these allegations continue to hang over him, is he a problem nationally for the party if he's on the ticket? >> the fact that we're talking about him? >> we're not talking about tax
5:10 am
reform and the other things that republicans would rather have us talk about prove that he's a problem. this is why they didn't want him to be the candidate down there to replace jeff sessions. they've had other issues with him, the fact that he's been expelled as chief justice of alabama in the past. he was not their choice. they dropped him faster than i expected. i mean, the story published and within two hours they were saying if this is true he should be gone. that's lightning fast for republicans. >> and we talk about roy moore in the context of the senate balance of power. republicans have a two-seat majority. we're looking toward 2018 and there were elections this week and democrats feel emboldened. how do you read the victory tuesday might? >> what i think it showed is that democrats at the local, county and state levels are figuring out how to talk about something other than donald trump and take advantage of the fact that people are showing up to vote because they don't like donald trump. they're not making him the central issue and exit polling
5:11 am
in both virginia and new jersey suggest that he's not the main factor, but you saw candidates across the country talk about the economy, talk about health care and talk about job creation. democrats have been saying for months that's what we've got to do. it appears it worked in legislative races in georgia and washington state. mayoral races across the country, as well. >> what's your sense, ed, of how republicans are reading these results? >> if you talk to them they'd like you to believe that this was only -- confined to those states and confined to areas of those states where hillary clinton prevailed. >> yeah. >> but the problem is they lost statewide elections they had a good shot at winning when the campaign began especially in virginia and a lot of these republican candidates were embracing trump-style tactics and running on undocumented immigrants, running ads that tried to attack and disrate the democratic opponent in ways that hillary clinton was last year and because they are not donald
5:12 am
trump and they didn't fully embrace donald trump, it backfired on them so they'll have to rethink a lot of the ways that they run campaigns in these states in these suburban areas of the country where democrats made big names. >> ed, a lot of republicans think one of the things they must do to hold on to the senate and the house is pass tax reform. we know the house and senate have now unveiled their plans. how closer we to a deal actually getting done? >> the plan is for the house to pass their version and the senate to pass their version right after thanksgiving, probably if not right before and then to see the two chambers come together quickly and put together an agreement that the president can sign before christmas. >> that's very, very fast. >> it is, and remember, they tried to do this with health care over the summer and it failed to move quickly. the issue for them is if they can't get it done by january, you bleed into an election year and they concerns about this festering too long. the goal in the house was to get this done as quickly as possible so that it didn't sit out there for lobbying organizations and democrat dechls and other groups to start picking it apart saying
5:13 am
wait, you're going to do this and do that, close this loophole and not that one? that's part of the problem. the other issue is what extent will corporations get a tax break? when are they getting favorable treatment than individual taxpayers and all of those things yet to be sorted out. whether or not they can do it on that time line, their track record has been pretty bad. >> it's also a several thousand-page piece of legislation that will affect every sector of the u.s. economy. a daunting task. ed o'keefe, keep telling us the good news then, great to see you. more high-from file figures are facing allegations of sexual misconduct. on friday actors richard dry fuss and george takei were accused of inappropriate sexual behavior. d on dryf fuss denies the
5:14 am
allegations. takei has not commented. meanwhile, louis c.k. says allegations of sexual misconduct made by five women against him are true. following his admission fx network announced he was cutting ties with the comedian. c.k. said he will step back from the spotlight and reflect on his behavior. tony decoppola is here on the widespread allegations of abuse. >> in a statement, louis c.k. confessed to masturbating in front of associates and all of this comes after the film announced it will not move forward with the release and it is cutting c.k. out of an upcoming schedule and its ondemand service. >> these days my problem is very simple. it's trying to find a place in my house where i can masturbate without somebody bothering me. >> reporter: for years, louis c.k. has joked about masturbation in his hand-stand-d
5:15 am
tv show. it was no laughing matter when c.k. got nationed and masturbated in front of them in 2002. jody cantor reported the women's story for "the new york times". >> louis c.k. is now one of the biggest names in comedy and even when this happened he was a pretty prominent comedian and they weren't really sure if they could speak out or say anything. >> >> reporter: in a statement c.k. said in part, these stories are true. the power i had over these women is that they admired me and i wielded that power irresponsibly. he added there is nothing about this that i forgive myself for and i have to reconcile it with who i am, which is nothing compared to the task i left them with. fx ended its relationship with c.k. who was executive producer on four shows. netflix said it would not produce a second stand-up special with the comedian. >> on friday, there were more high-from file accusations. actress ellen page accused director brett rattner of outing her in front of the cast and

5:17 am
new york times bombshell report include jeremy piven and stephen segall. >> to go back to louis c.k., that statement is different from many of the other statements. >> he's being criticized for not saying i'm sorry, and not apologizing, but he showed a knowledge that others have not. contrition is there. >> and he owned up to it. >> thanks, tony. it's a bitter cold start weekend for the eastern states. freeze warnings are up from south carolina to nolde this morning and chicago got a good taste of winter if with the city's first snow of the season and windchills below zero. let's get more on the weekend weather from meteorologist ed curran from the chicagostation

5:33 am

5:34 am
they have to prove that. we are conducting multiple investigations when there is a death. >> are the hitmen who are wearing masks and out killing people, are they lying when they say that they're backed by the police? >> we don't employ a, and we dot use masked men or a vigilante group. >> on the whole, do you think that this effort has been successful? >> we are looking at the two main objectives. we reduced the number of drug personalities or drug users and lessened the demand. how we accomplish our target, yes, we did. >> we embedded with the police outside of manila on a daily, anti-drug operation going house to house rounding up drug users. >> we are going to convince them to surrender. >> fearsome faces line the

5:40 am
the massacre of 26 people in a texas church last sunday is just the latest in a recent series of mass shootings. of the five deadliest shootings in modern u.s. history, three have taken place in the last two years and two in just the last two months. >> it has some suggesting that mass killings can actually catch on like an epidemic.
5:41 am
the theory is examined in an online article in the "atlantic." we're joined by senior editor derek thompson. good to see you as always. >> good morning. >> talk about where there's a new approach to look at mass killings almost like diseases. >> it's really interesting. you look at all the killings in orlando and las vegas and texas and as you said there does seem to be people who are watching the news seem to feel like is this accelerating. and, indeed, there's research that suggests it is. there's a 2015 paper that says mass diseases or these mass shootings can spread like diseases through the vector of mass media. typically diseases spread between two vegs but these spread through mass media. you have certain men throughout the country who tend to be men who have an itch who are susceptible to this grandizement. they're frustrated and they see this example on the news and
5:42 am
they say i can do the same thing and reach the same level of man. >> affect. that's a very strong word. >> you can think of it as infectious or copycat effect. because it's spread through broadcast, it may be spread in the same way as sue said has been shown to have a broad aspect. you could have a spate that clusters around that. all sorts of health behaviors. they show both positive and negative health behaviors can cluster like diseases. so i think we're just beginning to learn all sorts of behaviors, positive and negative can have a contagion effect. it's important for the media to study it. we need to know how to report these events so we don't create the clusters aspects itself. as far as mass killings, it's men of a certain type.
5:43 am
you talk about men who have grandiose aspirations and harbor petty grievances. talk to us about that. >> any time this happen it's always a loner, someone who wasn't well known, someone who's wrapped up in the social fabric. most diseases are because you're wrapped up. you're close to people who are sick and that's what infects you. the reason this sort of disease is so interesting is because it spreads through broadcasts, it can find people who are alone, who are less likely to be infected by any literal virus that may be more likely to be infected by a virus of this sort of self-agrand diezment that says you're out there, you're frustrated, you're sad, he's a possible way to be grandiose. >> there's an interesting point you also make, that there's actually no significant association between the rate of mass shootings and the
5:44 am
prevalence of mental illness in the state. >> that's right. i do think mental illness is a bit of a canard here. there's a lot of research here that says very simply where there are more guns, there are more gun deaths. they don't include done deaths or homicides. they include child firearm deaths. the u.s. has 5% of the industrial world's children and 5% of the accidental death involving children. the explanation is not that our children are 15 times more mentally unhealthy. it's simply that they're surrounded by weapons they don't know how to use. >> this is going to prompt a very serious debate about guns as it always does but also the ways in which we study the contagion of mass shooting. derek thompson, thanks for your time. >> thank you. the medical future may be in our hands. in fact, it may be inside of us.
5:45 am

5:49 am
with that, of course. plus we've got adult stem cells. every tissue o our body, brain, heart, muscle. even fat. >> that's good to know, something useful for fat. >> that's right. there are cells you can take from adults' skin that you can turn into things that look like imbrie onic stem cells. you don't need to go to embryonic to do something with embryonic stem cells. >> the other is gene therapy and you talk about crispr. what is that? >> it's a much more accurate and efficient way of editing dna, the genome. if you've got a mutation, a bad gene in there, you can go in, snip that out, an then insert the right cop -- a corrected gene if you will. the problem, of course, is you don't know exactly what that's going to do. genes often have a lot of different effects and you can
5:50 am
get different effects that are unintended. >> and that raise as host of ethical concerns too. once that gene is edited, it's passed on through the generations. >> right. if you do that in what we call germ sell lines meaning eggs or sperm, those are passed on. now it's a permanent change. >> for the human race. >> for the human race. where everybody from that particular person has that problem. you can get these what we call off-target effects. the genes have not just one effect but multiple or you edited genes you didn't need to edit. you're not really sure. so there's a lot of potential problems with that. of course, there's the issue of gene editing issue like we want a baby with blue eyes and blond hair. we don't know how to do that yet but that's potentially how it works. >> just last month they approved a gene cell therapy.
5:51 am
how big a deal is that? >> it's huge. it's the "c" word doctors don't like to use for a couple of cancers. you take car t-cells. you take your own ill mun cells do a little genetic manipulation and put those back in. now these immune cells know how to recognize the cancer cells and they go after the cancer cells and kill them off. >> immunotherapy seems to be at the forefront. we're at the tip of the iceberg, right? >> absolutely. immunotherapy is the hottest form now. it's all using your own cells we can use drugs to take the brakes off the system, use drugs to remove the cloak of harry potter off thome. we can use thome to manipulate and go after cancer cells.

the top story this hour. russian president putin has, again, denied to president trump that russia interviewed in the u.s. presidential election last year. mr. trump is in hanoi, vietnam this morning declining to say whether he believed the russian leader, president trump and mr. putin spoke earlier in a summit meeting. the two leaders will not hold a formal joint meeting in vietnam. roy moore, the republican senate candidate in alabama is denying allegations he made sexualdvces to four young women decades ago. one of the women was 14 at the time in 1979. all four confirmed their stories to cbs news. >> moore is refusing to drop out of the race. >> these allegations are completely false and misleading. i believe they are politically motivated, brought only to stop a very successful campaign, and that's what they are doing.

>> the alabama special election is december 12th. one of the most decorated women in u.s. olympic history says she's the victim of sexual abuse. gymnast allie who won gold in two olympic games said she was abused by the gymnastic's doctor, larry nassar. he's in jail now after pleading guilty to possessing child pornography, but not guilty to sexual assault charges. she shared her story for "60 minutes." >> you don't want to let yourself believe that, you know, i am -- i am a victim of sexual abuse, like, it's not an easy thing to let yourself believe that. >> you're saying you were sexually abused. >> yes. absolutely. >> by the national team doctor. >> yes. >> while you were out there representing your country. >> yes. >> few athletes represented their country with as much

distinction. the doctor she says abused her, larry nassar, worked with the u.s. women's national team and athletes at michigan state university for more than two decades. she says he first treated her eight years ago when she was 15 years old. now 23, she talks about her experiences in a new book called "fierce," the story of a girl who dreamed of going to the olympics, and how she managed to get there. reisman will not discuss the graphic details of what e he did to her, but she provides insight into a scandal that goes to the highest level of her sport. she told us a lot of people asked her why the accusers did not speak up sooner? >> why didn't the girls speak up, why not look at what about the culture? what did you say gymnastics do and larry do to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up. >> you're angry. >> i am. i'm really upset. it's been -- i care a lot, you

6:05 am
network announced they were cutting ties with the comedian. netflix scrapped his planned comedy special. they are just the latest in a long and growing line of high profile individuals publicly accused of sexual misconduct in the make of the allegations against harvey weinstein. the flood of accusations opened a discussion on sexual harassment and sexual assault. for more on these developments, we are joined by d. gayle salt, a clinical professor of psychiatry at new york presbyterian hospital. good morning. >> good morning. >> we have seen a seismic shift in the landscape around sexual harassment and sexual assault. what do you think of it? >> i think what people have to understand is that this is about power. this is not about sex. this is about power men and women, but mostly men because they are in positions of power, going after vulnerable young victims who are in junior
6:06 am
positions who cannot necessarily say something about it. it's about humiliation. people stay quiet because it is humilia humiliating. that's the point of it. it is to make the person feel shamed, and even potentially guilty as if maybe, did i do something here, which is why it's so difficult to speak out, why it's taken years an for women to say something and why it's taking a crowd to break the ice to make this a water shed moment to not feel alone, oh, usually victims feel very alone. if you don't feel alone, you feel, maybe i can say something now. >> when you talk about shame, is there not some shame that the predators, themselves, people, when you look at the louis c.k. and the harvey weinstein allegations. there seems to be self-loathing behavior in some of those instances. >> you know, there may be insecurity behind which conotes
6:07 am
a no, s narcissism. when i'm insecure and when i need to feel more powerful, which i need to feel, is exert this on someone else, shame, make them less than me, push them down to control them to prove i'm the most powerful to myself, and so psychologically, that may be what's going on. whether the people have any insight into what they did and why they did that, and, therefore, feel any personal shame, you know, i don't know. sometimes people have soeother issues involved with this, and they don't truly feel for others. they feel the most important thing is gratifying themselves and feeling they are the most power fful. >> to the points about power, there was a piece in the at lap tick saying the root of this is economic, economic disperty between men and women creating a power disparity allowing this abuse to occur.
6:08 am
do you agree with that? >> there's a point there, absolutely. i do think if we had many more women in power, i'm not saying this would be gone because women can do this to women, men have done this to men, et cetera, but since the predominance is men doing it to women and predominantly men are in power, i do think if there were more equal playing field, you'd see less of this, but it wouldn't be gone. what people have to understand, this is not men versus women. this is powerful people taking advantage of and harassing younger, junior people. this is sort of bullying on steroids if you will, and that is a phenomena of human nature. sometimes to be sadistic, and, in this case, take erotic pleasure in being sadistic and cruel and suppressing someone else. that's a piece of what's going on. it's not sex, per se, but they make it a charge out of it from
6:09 am
that vantage point. >> do you worry about a backlash here begin the number of allegations? >> i am hearing from some men saying, well, hey, if this is about men, i can't hire women or be alone in an office with a woman. that's a copout. something in the system needs to change, reporting systems, parents educate sons and daughters about this danger, and to say, well, defensively, then i'm not going to hire women will only make the problem worse. we need to change education and system coming up. >> dr. saltz, thank you so much for being with us. nine minutes after the hour. here's a look at the weather for your weekend.
