weekend, baby. thank you for watching this morning. >> have a great day. good morning to our viewers in the west. it is friday, february 2nd, 2018. welcome to cbs this morning. president trump accuses his own top justice officials of bias before the likely release of a gop memo on the russia investigation. only on cbs this morning, the ranking democrat on the house intelligence committee talks about why that memo should not be made public. >> amazon, apple and google's parent company report record revenue but how does their success affect you? we'll look at why some wall street investors are unimpressed. >> minutes ago, the father of three women who say larry nasser abused them rushed the disgraced doctor in open court. and another accuser tells us how
police did not believe her story. >> plus, boston and philadelphia led the american revolution. now they're preparing to face off in the super bowl. mo rocca visits beantown, while michelle miller visits the other city to see who has the winning spirit. >> first, we begin with today's eye opener. your world in 90 seconds. >> there are jaw-dropping revelations about the extent to which the fbi and department of justice were weaponized politically. >> president trump set to release the gop's secret memo. >> this is a cover-up by the republicans to protect president trump. >> this memo is congress doing its job in conducting legitimate oversight. >> this momemo is a transparent political hit job. >> grant me five minutes. >> the parent of a victim of dr. larry nassar charging at him during a sentencing hearing this morning. >> federal immigration agents raided california workplaces. >> i.c.e. demanded proof that
the detaineesters are country illegally. >> charging a 12-year-old girl. >> a nightmare for all of us. >> a burning van crashed into a crowd in shanghai. >> officials say the driver was smoking while transporting -- >> all that -- >> at the horn! >> knocked it down at the horn! >> and all that matters. >> football, 200. >> jeopardy came to a screeching halt -- >> fair catch. >> when the final category gave all three contestants a run for their money. >> do you think we should go to commercial? >> on cbs this morning. >> a british lawmaker arrived two minutes late to the house of lords and then this happened -- >> i'm ashamed at not being in my place and therefore i should be offering my resignation -- >> yes, may seem like being two minutes late is a small thing to resign over but honestly, how are you late? your whole building is a clock, come on, man.
>> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota, let's go places. >> welcome to cbs this morning. i'm john dickerson with gayle king and norah o'donnell. we are not late. >> on time. >> president trump is openly accusing senior law enforcement officials of outright bias. he tweeted this morning, quote, the top leadership and investigators of the fbi and the justice department have politicized the sacred investigative process in favor of democrats and against republicans. he added, rank and file are great people. >> now, the president spoke out before an expected decision to allow the release of a classified memo produced by the republican chairman of the house intelligence committee. it claims the fbi abused surveillance during its investigation of possible ties between the trump campaign and russia. >> the bureau says it has grave concerns about the memo's accuracy. major garrett is at the white
house. major, good morning. >> good morning. the white house dismisses rumors that fbi director christopher wray threatened to quit over this memo controversy. sources close to wray tell us that's not his style, but they also tell us that wray may release a rebuttal to the republican-drafted memo if, as expected, it is released later today. as president trump flew back to washington yesterday, a senior official on air force one told reporters the white house would not object to the memo's release. the president is okay with it, the official said. i doubt there will be any redactions. then it is in congress' hands after that. that contradicted other white house sources who said parts of the memo would be redacted. fbi director christopher wray has fought against its release, arguing the gop-drafted memo unfairly criticizes the bureau with cherry-picked information. written by house intelligence committee chairman nunes, the memo, according to those who read it, alleges the fbi and justice department did not
follow proper procedures when seeking a secret surveillance warrant of trump campaign official carter page in 2016. it was revealed wednesday that nunes edited the memo's content after the intelligence committee voted to declassify it and before it was sent to the white house for review. house minority leader nancy pelosi called for nunes to be removed, saying in a letter to house speaker paul ryan, quote, nunes' deliberately dishonest actions make him unfit to serve as chairman. ryan said the memo is not an attack on the fbi but a check on power. >> american civil liberties were abused, then that needs to come to light so that that doesn't happen again. >> reporter: the president has tracked conversation about this memo for weeks as it's played out on television. seeing it as possible reinforcement of his long-standing contention of political bias within the fbi against his campaign. we're also told this memo's not nearly as explosive as some on television have represented. >> all right, major, thank you.
fired fbi director james comey sent this twitter message last night. it said this, all should appreciate the fbi speaking up. i wish more of our leaders would. but take heart. american history shows that in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field so long as good people stand up. california representative adam schiff, ranking democrat on the house intelligence committee, has led efforts in congress to block the release of the memo on surveillance. he's with us from ft. lauderdale for an interview you'll see only on cbs this morning. congressman, thank you. >> you bet. >> the speaker of the house, paul ryan, said yesterday that this memo is not an indictment of the fbi and then the president tweeted this morning that it is. what do you make of that? >> well, unfortunately, in this case, it's clear from the president that this is exactly the purpose behind this cherry-picking of information
that devin nunes wants to release. this is designed to impugn the credibility of the fbi, to undermine the investigation, to give the president additional fodder to attack the investigation. and it's a tremendous disservice to the american people who are going to be misled by this, by the selective use of classified information. and more than that, it's a terrible new line we've crossed. where we're going to decide, okay, we're going to take this classified information and make it public, but we're going to hide this classified information so that people can be misled. i think it's a really dishonest thing to do and people in congress that support this are going to be held to account. >> congressman what about the central claim the republicans make, which is that this dossier, which was funded by the democrat, was used to get the warrant to look into carter page who was part of the trump campaign? so that you have essentially an investigation here that comes from a partisan document. >> well, unfortunately, until this is released, i can't comment on the underlying
documents. but i can say among the changes that i thought were notable, that the chairman made, after the release was approved by our committee but before it was sent to the white house is a reference to omissions that were called significant omissions. remove the the war significant. so it may be the position, of at least the chairman, that was claimed to be significant omissions are no longer significant. but the reality is there is no demonstration in this memo, in this misleading memo, of a systemic abuse at the fbi, as has been posetted by the president and his allies. instead, the majority only wants certain facts to be seen and has refused to let the democratic response be seen. >> since you're a former federal prosecutor as well, the allegation that's being made by the republicans that someone within the fbi or justice department could essentially trick or fool a federal judge at fisa to issue a warrant for surveillance, is that profound
ignorance about how this whole process works? aren't there more checks and balances in place? >> there are a lot of checks and balances in place. what's more, that's a gross mischaracterization of what has happened here. and that is just an effort to undermine the fbi to do the president's bidding. there's no evidence of a corrupt effort to obtain warrants against people in the trump campaign. that's been the president's narrative. but there's no evidence of that. and instead what will be released by the president over the objections of the fbi, which is called the document quite rightly misleading and inaccurate, is an effort to undermine the russia investigation. don't look at what the russians did. don't look at what the trump campaign did in combination with the russians. just put the government on trial. and -- >> congressman, what is the status of -- >> -- the long-term damage done to these institutions -- >> okay, what is the status, congressman, of the democratic response? >> well, we're going to try to force another vote on this.
the republicans voted down the release of the democratic response, which was quite breathtaking, because they said they were offering their own memo in the interest of full transparency. i don't think that position can be sustained. i think they're going to have to release our memo. but what they wanted to do was have this misleading document sit out there for a week, slow-walk the democratic response, so they could hopefully make this the narrative. again, it's just playing partisan politicings wiitipolit classified information. it really breaks this contract that we would treat the information they share with us for respect, that we would not seek to abuse it for partisan purposes. it means in the future, they're a lot less willing to share with us. >> we'll have to leave it there, thank you very much. health officials in georgia are looking into whether the flu killed a 5-year-old boy, eli snook died on saturday. his parents say he suffered an infection in his brain. on tuesday, the virus killed
sa-year-old georgia high school student kira molina. mark strassmann is at children's health care of atlanta egleston hospital. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. at last count, georgia's had 37 flu deaths. the single season record is 59. health officials tell us they expect to top that record here and soon. and behind each of those deaths is a family story. like this. >> he was the son i've always wanted. i've always wanted a baby boy. >> reporter: that 5-year-old boy was eli snook. his parents say he came down with a high fever nearly two weeks ago. they took him to urgent care near their home in marietta where they say he was diagnosed with the flu and prescribed antibiotics and the antiviral medication tami-flu. >> after he got well from the flu, a few days later, he got sick again. >> reporter: eli tested negative for the flu this time. but doctors noticed a rash
across his body and sent him to children's health care of atlanta. >> see his face and he's like fighting his jaw and his arm goes and he starts having seizures. >> reporter: he was placed in a medically induced coma while doctors performed a cat scan and spinal tap but the virus sped to his brain. >> his brain swelled to point of now return, and they told us he was brain dead. >> reporter: nurses surrounded eli at his bedside while his parents prayed for a miracle. >> unfortunately, the lord took him home. so -- and it was saturday at 10:00. >> reporter: eli's parents say he did not have a flu shot. dr. daniel salinas is chief medical officer. >> the best line of defense to prevent influenza is to get a vaccine. >> if your kids are sick, don't take any chances. >> you can't really know these things. it just happens.
>> reporter: the snooks buried their son on wednesday. and because of the flu, children's health care of atlanta tells us they have had record numbers of patients at all three of their hospitals and all seven of their walk-in clinics. >> mark, thanks. police in los angeles say a shooting at a middle school was accidental gunfire. erupted in a classroom shortly after the opening bell on thursday. investigators say a 12-year-old girl brought a semiautomatic handgun to school. several students say the gun was in her backpack when it discharged. she's being held in juvenile detention. four students and an adult were hurt. a 15-year-old boy, shot in the head, is expected to survive. admitted sexual abuser dr. larry nassar's latest sentencing hears was interrupted when the father of three of nassar's accusers rushed him in the courtroom. >> i want to ask you to -- as part of this sentencing, to grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon.
>> i have -- >> would you do that? >> that is not how -- >> yes or no? >> no, sir, i can't -- >> would you give me one minute? >> you know that i can't do that. that's not how our legal system -- >> well, i'm going to have to -- >> stay down. stay down. >> security officers and nassar's lawyers managed to stop randal margraves who was handcuffed and taken out. our dr. jon lapook spoke with another victim yesterday who received an apology from police. >> the fallout shows no sign of abating. as questions remain about who knew what when. the meridian township police department's failure to believe brianne randall was abused is just latest example. >> to you, brianne, we failed you. we let you down. >> reporter: meridian township
manager frank walsh issued the apology to randall thursday. >> i know we've had a lot of private conversations, private apologies, but we felt this needed to be done in public. >> reporter: randall who attended the news conference via a live feed, filed a report to local police back in 2004 when she was 17, claiming nassar sexually abused her. according to the police report released wednesday, nassar admitted he touched randall in the genital area but created a power point presentation for police to show the procedure is a medical technique. police decided not to pursue charges. do you think what if? what if they had just believed me and pursued it? >> i think what if all the time. >> reporter: though it's been difficult, randall says she accepts the department's apology. >> having to come to the realization that i was sexually abused and because no one believes me, hundreds of other women were subsequently abused. that's been a huge struggle for me. >> reporter: in a radio interview yesterday, one of
nassar's lawyers, shannon smith, seemed to cast doubt on some of nassar's victims. >> there is a huge part of me that does not believe that every one of those girls was victimized by him. >> larry's the most dangerous type of abuser. >> reporter: rachael denhollander, the first nassar victim to publicly reveal her identity, issued a statement in response, saying in part, the level of willful ignorance displayed by shannon smith is beyond the pale. in a statement, nassar said he was not aware that smith's statements were going to be made, nor did he authorize them. he apologized for the distraction. smith told cbs news she is not going to say anything further as she believes her statements have been blown into a different context than they were meant. >> egregious comments. >> yes. >> thank you, jon. tech giants are celebrating record breaking sales this morning. amazon's $60.5 billion in fourth quarter revenue was much higher than expected. sales are up 38%. from the previous year. fourth quarter sales of google's
parent company alphabet exceeded $32 billion, up 24%. and apple's revenue topped $88 billion. profits hit $20 billion for the first time. the three companies combined made more than half a trillion dollars last year. cbs' jim schlesinger is with us. let's start with amazon. why are things better than expected? >> as we know, they're expanding beyond just online, so that's really interesting. we also know that amazon derived an enormous amount of money from their cloud computing area. it drives revenue like crazy. it was up 45% from a year ago. it's just incredible. we know the holiday sales, better than expected. and, by the way, a little interesting factoid, $789 million in a tax benefit due to the tax law changes. so they took that in the fourth quarter. they would have been profitable anyway but amazing results. >> that really helped them. do you think these companies are getting too big, too dominant? >> there's a case to be made for
that. if you look at how search is done. google accounts for 90% of searches or something like that. ad spending. you put together facebook, plus google. and you know that ad dollars, almost two-thirds of every ad dollars spent, it goes to one of those two companies. i think there's the case that people are saying they're just getting too big. when you talk to antitrust lawyers, what they say is, you know what, the consumer is the focus when it comes to antitrust and consumers are not harmed by the dominance of these companies. and that's the key. >> let's dig into the numbers for apple because this is the first earnings report since the release of their new phone. lackluster sales. so how did they recover? >> you know, it's a beautiful thing when you can charge more. that will make up for your lackluster sales. so that $1,000 iphone x, which i have not bought yet, that made up for a lot. there's a couple of things interesting about this report. one is they gave disappointing guidance in the future. and a lot of the analysts that i spoke to said that wasn't expected. the other piece of this, don't
forget, apple's sitting on about $250 billion overseas. they're going to repatriate that. $38 billion they're going to pay in taxes. they've got to do something with that money. research, development. i suspect they're going to be a. >> a lot of people did get the iphone 10. it worked out okay. thank you, jill. a passenger tried to board a flight with a large peacock. >> this woman is wrangling her peacock into the airport. >> all right, ahead, the new rules for flying with so-called good morning, look at the skies out there, ahead of the sunrise. a few thin clouds, warm conditions for the morning, considering the time of day it is. but this afternoon, get ready for even warmer weather, warmer than yesterday. temperatures in the mid to

whole thing. >> incredible equanimity. that's how he's going to get through the next six weeks. welcome back to cbs this morning. here are three things you should know this morning. you may start seeing a bump in your paycheck as soon as today. employers have started using the new irs income tax withholding tables. a number of companies offering bonuses because of that tax overhaul is growing. the home improvement chain lowe's is the latest to announce up to $1,000 for each employee. >> a group of female music executives are demanding the resignation of the head of the recording academy. neil portnow faced strong criticism for saying women in the music industry need to step up in order to be recognized. the female executives posted a open letter calling his comments spectacularly wrong and insulting. they told him it's time for him to stand down. in a statement, portnow says he understands the pain his, quote, poor choice of words caused. >> and justin timberlake is
promising the super bowl halftime show will include things, quote, never done before. speaking in minneapolis yesterday, timberlake ruled out any chance that his former boy band nsync or janet jackson would join him on stage sunday. he revealed only that his band, the tennessee kids, would perform. timberlake's new album is called "man of the woods," out this morning. he's going to play something from that for sure. a lot of people were hoping maybe janet would be there. a lot of people feel she should be back on stage. >> it was his birthday yesterday, too. happy birthday. >> yes, si saw that. a bill to address what the president called a top priority, lowering prescription drug prices. the proposed creates act would target what critics call are legal but questionable tactics that drug companies use to delay the introduction of cheaper generic medication. the fda commissioner has called the tactics, shenanigans and, quote, unfair and exploitative
practices. anna werner is looking into this. >> this is a situation where critics say some drug companies who want to hold on to their exclusive sales of a brand name drug and their profits are playing games to stave off generic competitors. leaving patients out in the cold. >> so that's it? >> that's it. >> it's the drug that's keeping pam holt alive, keeping her multiple myeloma, blood cancer, at bay. it's called revlimid and her co-pay runs $640 a month. >> i don't know how anyone can afford that, i really don't. >> reporter: but holt can't get a generic. not because other companies aren't trying to make one but because critics say revlimid is one of a number of drugs for which companies are using unfair tactics to stifle generic competition. >> this does not help consumers. they're paying more money than they should be paying. >> reporter: rutgers law professor michael carrier studies what he calls the games drug companies play to protect
their profits. >> those games take many forms. in one form, a brand company will pay a generic to delay entering the market. in another forum, it will switch from one version of the drug to another, just trivally different. i call it anti-competitive conduct. >> reporter: often he conversation the games involve patents. the government protection that gives companies the exclusive right to sell their drug for 20 years. but drugmakers have found ways to extend those protections much longer. take the rheumatoid arthritis drug humira. generating $18 million for manufacturer abbvie. its original patent was expiring. to protect it, carrier says abbvie built a patent thicket of more than 100 additional patents. >> it uses that to keep any other bio similar off the market. when there are so many patents on any particular drug, it's easy to find some where you can
claim infringement. >> reporter: another tactic he says is product hopping where a company will make minor changes to their drug like switching from a capsule to a tablet or changing the dosage. >> every time there's a change like this, the generic has to go back to the drawing board. has to redesign the product, get fda approval. it can't be substituted at the pharmacy counter because it's a little bit different. >> reporter: and pam holt's drug revlimid, it's in a special group of high-risk drugs. to make a generic version, a competitor has to be able to get samples from original manufacturer celgene. but mylan is suing them, saying it won't provide the sample so has directly blocked patient access. >> i'm just learning that now, so that is just devastating to me. >> reporter: devastating because? >> you know, sick people should not have to increase the profits of these huge drug corporations.
at some point, there needs to be understanding that people should be able to have the drugs that they need to survive. >> reporter: celgene had no comment about the lawsuit but called it pointless. the company also sent us a brochure, saying it's willing to make revlimid and other drugs available to generic manufacturers, that it consistently offers and has sold samples for what's called bio equivalent testing. what do other drug companies have to say? lori riley with the industry's lobbying group phrama told us the system is working. >> over 1,000 new ones approved just last year. the highest of anywhere in the world and over $100 billion worth of new medicines going off patent in the next five years. i think our system by and large has worked tremendously well. >> reporter: you're basically saying the games are not happening. >> i'm basically saying if to the extent there are issues, that there are multiple opportunities and venues to address those. >> reporter: she says companies
invest billions to bring new medicines to market and need patents to protect those investments and to innovate. >> our companies enter into with great intent of trying to make their medicines more productive, more useful for patients and society. >> reporter: always with -- >> i believe so, yes. >> reporter: without exception? >> well, i certainly don't look at every single patent the company gets but i believe our companies acts with very good intent, yes. >> reporter: but pam holt says she's decided to act too. by joining the group patients for affordable drugs, using the time she has left to fight drug companies. make you angry? >> yes. and it's just so very irritating and so very heartbreaking. that there's so little being done to help us. >> reporter: abbvie did not comment on humira. celgene says a generic equivalent will be coming out. pam holt may not live that long.
the company does offer a reduced payment program but as a retired educator, pam holt makes too much to qualify, although not enough to avoid going more than $7,000 into debt because of the drug that's on her credit card now. >> i love that pam holt is taking up the cause. i hope in this case doctors are wrong and that it's longer than ten years. >> she says they've turned her into an activist. >> you can see that. roosters, monkeys and now peacocks are just some of the creatures passengers are tried to bring on planes. ahead, how united airlines is tightening the rules on those so-called emotional support animals. peacocks are so cuddly. we invite you to subscribe to our cbs product cast. you'll get the news of the day, podcast originals, find them all on itunes and apple's app. ing." we'll be right back.

in part by a passenger who tried to board a united flight with a large peacock on sunday. delta announced similar restrictions just last month. cbs news travel editor peter greenberg is at united's hub at newark's airport. that's where that peacock was grounded. peter, good morning. most people don't think a peacock is an emotional support animal. >> no, but they are. in fact, more and more airlines are reporting that the number as well as the types of emotional support animals is reaching crisis proportions. we're not just talking, as you can imagine, dogs and cats. in fact, the interior cabins of some flights are beginning to resemble noah's arc. >> i'm not kidding, this woman is wrangling her peacock into the airport. >> reporter: united says it warned the peacock's owner three times that dexter would not be allowed to board. the bird lives with an artist in brooklyn who claimed dexter was her emotional support animal. in this 2016 interview, she described how she found him.
>> but then this happened, and i was like, do i have a peacock cuddling in my neck? yes, i do. >> reporter: united already prohibited nonhousehold birds, hedgehogs, ferrets, spiders, sugar gliders and other exotic animals. its new policy requires owners to give 48 hours advance notice when flying with a support animal, private a letter from a mental health professional and documents from a vet showing the animal is vaccinated and not a threat to the public. >> we've had roosters and ducks and pigs and monkeys. >> reporter: sara nelson is the president of the association of flight attendants and says she applauds the new changes. >> what we really need is for the department of transportation to act with guidelines. >> reporter: united saw a 75% spike in comfort animals. from 43,000 in 2016 to 76,000 last year. the critters sometimes relieve themselves and damage planes. in june, an emotional support
dog bit a delta passenger. can pigs fly? in 2015, we showed how easy it was to get one on a flight. a colorado counseling center provided cbs this morning with a letter prescribing the pig as the primary treatment for a psychological disability. tom panek, for guiding eyes for the blind, says people are passing off their untrained pets as service animals. >> as a person who is blind, my access rights are being infringed upon when somebody passes off a fake service dog. >> reporter: now, the new policies for united and delta kick in on march 1 and american airline suspected to follow suit. the new policies only apply to emotional support animal, not the trained specially dedicated animals that fly for and with people with disabilities. >> people take their pets very seriously, we get it. but you see a lot of people taking advantage of that policy, so i think it's good that

good morning to our viewers, happy friday to you in the west. it is friday, february 2nd, 2018. welcome back to cbs this morning. ahead more "48 hours" reporting on the mysterious death of natalie wood. erin more regardty is here with a detailed account allegedly involving robert wagner and christopher walken and dr. narula has advice on protecting women on go red for women day. today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> president trump is accusing senior law enforcement officials of bias in favor of democrats and against republicans. the white house dismisses rumors that fbi director christopher wray threatened to quit over the memo controversy.
paul ryan said that this memo is not an indictment of the fbi and then the president tweeted this morning that it is. this is designed to impugn the credibility of the fbi, to give the president fodder to attack the investigation. had 37 flu deaths the state's record is 59 and health officials tell us they expect to top the record soon. dr. larry nassar's sentencing hearing interrupted minutes ago when the father of three of nassar's accusers rushed him in the courtroom. >> punxsutawney phil predicts six weeks of winter. he saw his shadow this morning. >> groundhog's day real? >> a man in a top hat. >> yeah. >> grabs a groundhog, this rodent basically, and pulls it out of the ground and then if the groundhog sees its shadows we have six more weeks of winter. you have no idea. the guy in the hat tells us whether -- >> and they say africans are superstitious. >> yeah.
i'm norah o'donnell with gayle king and john dickerson. as president trump prepares for the release of a classified memo about the russia investigation, he's accusing top law enforcement officials of political bias. the president posted this twitter message this morning. the top leadership and investigators of the fbi and the justice department have politicized the sacred investigative process in favor of democrats and against republicans. he sent that tweet without providing any evidence. >> the memo accuses the fbi and doj of improper surveillance of a trump campaign official. >> the fbi says it has grave concerns about the memo's accuracy and democrats claim that republicans wrote it to undermine the russia probe. paula reid at fbi headquarters in washington with more on this story. paula, good morning. >> good morning. that tweet is curious because the president appointed many of these top officials at the justice department, including the attorney general, deputy
attorney general and the fbi director. but this memo controversy has put him the direct conflict with his fbi director. director wray believes that this memo should not be released because it unfairly criticizes the fbi using cherry-picked information. now we've talked to some sources about these reports that wray could potentially resign over the release of that memo and we're told that is not true, that is not his style, and he is committed to serving out his ten-year term. but we're also told he could issue his own rebuttal if this memo is released. i talked to senior justice officials and they say the tweet, the memo controversy, all indicative of the unprecedented pressure facing the justice department these days. they also tell me typically they are willing to share information, classified information, with congress with the expectation that they will use it in a discreet, nonpartisan manner, but with this memo's controversy, it's clear that they're using it in the most partisan way, most public way imagine ibl and there
are concerns that is going to fracture that critical oversight, bipartisan relationship. now in talking to rank and file, they say they are still 100% focused on their job. they're not paying attention to what's going on in washington. but there are some concerns that the general public may start to lose trust in the fbi. gayle? >> thank you very much, paula. cbs news senior national security analyst fran townsend spent 13 years working in the justice department and she oversaw the unit that handled the fisa warrants and was homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. fran, much to discuss about this story. if the fbi does release a rebuttal, what would that look like to you? >> it's complicated for them, gayle, because, of course, what they worry about is revealing sources and methods. director wray's real objection here is that the nunes memo is a one-sided advocacy piece an wants to put it in context without revealing how they collect information. no fisa warrant is on a single piece of information.
even if you relied in some part on the steele dossier you would have had to caveat it about your concerns of the credibility of the sourcing on it and it wouldn't have been the only thing. you had informants, physical surveillance, other electronic surveillance and information from foreign intelligence services. it's a mosaic. you have to think of these warrants as a mosaic. >> the memo alleges, of course, that it was the steele dossier that set off the surveillance of carter page. all you have to do is read "the wall street journal" today to see he's likely been under surveillance since 2013 for a number of meetings he had and lived in moscow in 2004. a lot of evidence to be taken in context. >> absolutely. >> the president heard from his fbi director and decided to go in another direction. is that just a disagreement that bosses have with their subordinates or a break here that's going to leave lasting damage? >> i talked to several sources inside the fbi who made perfectly clear this is a
professional disagreement. chris wray is the director not looking to crosswise with the president. they may disagree. it's the president's decision and they will move forward. i don't think we ought to view this as a break between the director and president but look if you're the director, you got to not feel pretty -- you have to not feel good about the president deciding to -- >> the director used the words grave concern, fran? >> that's right. i think because it really undermine the integrity and credibility of the fbi and the long-term potential impact of that is your foreign allies you rely on to share classified information with you, to prevent threats to the country may not share it with you if they have to worry about it becoming public. >> do you think this changes the process for getting a fisa warrant going forward if you think it's going to be reviewed in this context? >> i think you're going to be more careful about what you put in it if you're worried about it being revealed. that's the thing we don't want to haem, right. this is a very sort of constrained process and very careful process and you want the court to have all the potential
information they can. you don't want people holding things back because they're afraid it's going to be revealed. >> there's some suggestion it could undermine the credibility of the deputy attorney general, rod rosenstein? >> you know, the big concern here, rod rosenstein has been a target of president trump's criticisms and i think people worry he's unlikely to fire mueller because of what that controversy would be, but if he took out rod rosenstein he's really the principle lawyer overseeing the mueller investigation. >> whoever he replaces him with could fire mueller is the thinking. >> correct. >> thanks a lot. homeland security agents cracking down on illegal workers in northern california demanding businesses turn over their employment records. the sweep targeted 77 businesses in san francisco, sacramento, and san jose with so-called notices of inspection. the owners have three business days to produce their hiring records. last week jeff spoke with immigration and customs enforcement acting director tom homan who detailed the strategy. >> we do targeted enforcement

investigators are revealing key witnesses' accounts of the night actress natalie wood mysterious drowned. we were the first to report yesterday that "48 hours" learned woods' then husband robert wagner is considered a person of interest. wood disappeared in 1981 after boating with wagner, actor christopher walkp and the boat's captain. her death was originally ruled an accident but investigators reopened the case just over six years ago. in this preview of tomorrow's "48 hours" investigators speak for the first time to erin moriarty about the key witnesses in this unsolved case. >> reporter: captain dennis dev vern and ralph hernandez and lieu ten na corina's most important but problematic
witness. he has sold his story to the tabloids for money and collaborated on a tell-all book. you find him credible? >> i find his story and his version of events when he talked to us everything fit, makes more sense of what happened and is corroborated by people. >> reporter: devern says it was a tension filled weekend, fueled by alcohol and wagner's jealousy of wood's costar christopher walken. >> it kept getting more tense every minute of the day. >> reporter: turning ugly saturday night. >> i opened a bottle of wine and natalie and christopher continued to giggle and robert wagner picked up the bottle of wine and smashed it. >> what are you trying to do [ bleep ] my wife? >> natalie said i cannot take this and she went into her room. >> reporter: according to devern christopher walken went to his
room. >> then rj went into the room natalie and rj's room, started arguing yelling, things being thrown about. >> reporter: at that point devern leaves and goes up to the bridge at the top of the boat. >> he hears them arguing, it sounds like there's a like a physical fight going on inside there. he walks back down, and he knocks on the door. robert wagner opens the door and says -- he had a crazed look, is everything okay, he says go away. he looked so angry, he said i was worried about my own safety and i left. i went back up to the bridge. >> da vern told investigators that his line of sight was blocked by the boat's rain shield. but he heard everything. >> fighting continued and then to the back of the boat, i was concerned that something really bad was going down because the fighting, the arguing was so intense. >> reporter: until now davern
has been the lone witness to that alleged fight between natalie wood and robert wagner on the back of the boat. but investigators say they now have two new witnesses who claim they not only heard the fight, but one of them says she saw it. >> how credible are the new witnesses? >> they're very credible. they have no reason to lie. their story matches what dennis says. >> but the lieutenant says the stories don't match accounts robert wagner has given over the years. wagner won't speak to these investigators, but he has consistently said that natalie wood's death was an accident. >> why does a case that is now really more than 36 years old, matter? >> because somebody died and no matter what ultimately that's our job to find the truth. >> wagner declined our requests for comment but reportedly told the "new york daily news," quote, i've said everything there is to say. erin moriarty is with us now. good morning.
>> good morningp. >> christopher walken, what has he said. >> that's interesting. gayle probably knows and remembers he has not been forthcoming over the years. you once asked him about it. he was not want to talk about it. >> yeah. >> what's interesting, unlike robert wagner, he did talk to the investigators and they have said he's not a person of interest. >> his story has changed a little bit, like what he said initially to the police and then what he said in a "playboy" magazine, so it's really difficult, but they say he's not a person of interest. >> and how likely do you think criminal charges will be filed? does the boat captain have credibility at this point? >> they say he does. his story really hasn't changed that much over the years. the reason we raised questions he did originally sell his story to the tabloids. they say his story has stayed pretty much the same over the years and matches the new witnesses. >> criminal charges? >> well, time is not on the side of these investigators. remember, this is a 36-year-old case. robert wagner turns 88 next week. and the statute of limitation
has run on all crimes except for murder. so that's the focus of the investigation at this point is, is to see how she got into the water. >> thanks very much, erin. >> see erin's full report, natalie wood, death in dark water, on "48 hours" tomorrow at 10:00, 9:00 central on cbs. former supermodel gisele goes makeup-free for the cover of italian "vogue." if you look like gisele you can go makeup-free and how she put on her loony toon slippers and took a laid back approach to the photo shoot. you're watching "cbs this morning." we'll be right back. slippers and made this more relaxed approach. we'll be right back. you're watching "cbs this morning."
