7:07 am
good morning and congratulations. it's so great to talk to you. >> it's good to be here. i appreciate you having me. >> you were on fire last night. i mean, 8 of your 10 catches were for first downs. you were responsible for more than half of the patriots receiving yards. how's the team feeling this morning? >> i think we're all feeling pretty happy. and probably a little tired. you know, it was an unbelievable game. it was great to be a part of. resilient group of guys. and, you know, now after all the hard work we get a little time to enjoy ourselves and i think that's what we're doing right now. >> i know after the game yo, yo said the first person you wanted to talk to was your mom. what did you say to her? >> i just said i love you and i appreciate her. i wanted to see my family. you know, that's -- i wouldn't be where i'm at without 'em. and, you know, sometimes you just got to say it, let them know. >> julian, let's just say your
7:08 am
mom loves you too. i'm sure she's glad to hear from you. your mustache is very much on point. i know you were talking about that before we went on air. you look good considering you were probably up all night. i heard you after the game saying listen, i just wanted to go out there and do my job. what were your thoughts going into the game? >> my strategy was i didn't want to go out there and make any mental errors. every game is completely graded throughout the whole process of, you know, plus or minus on each play, blocking assignments, pass route, conversion, or anything like that. and, you know, i wanted to go in and have a clean game like that. i wanted to be able to, you know, help communicate. want to hear the personnel groups get in and out of the huddle. those are little individual goals that i had. if you do those little things, that helps to make a big difference. >> what was that moment like, that hug between you and tom
7:09 am
brady? >> it was awesome. you know, he's the ultimate professional. he's the greatest of all time. and it's been an honor to get to play with him. and, you know, learn from him on not just being football player, being a professional, being a father. just been, you know, helping me out for ten years now. showing me the ropes. and, you know, it's pretty cool to have guys like him around. >> julian edelman, congratulations. great victory. >> i appreciate it, guys, i appreciate it. >> we appreciate him too. president trump watched the first half of last night's game at his golf club in west palm beach florida. he told "face the nation" moderator margaret brennan he wouldn't want to see his 12-year-old son on the gridiron. >> would you let your son play
7:10 am
football? >> it's very -- very tough question. very good question. if he wanted to, yes. would i steer him that way? no, i wouldn't. >> why? >> he actually plays a lot of soccer. he's in soccer. a lot of people thought soccer would never make it in this country but it really is moving forward rapidly. i just don't like the reports that i see coming out having to do with football. >> concussions? >> yes, concussions and other things. knees and hips and shoulders and elbows and everything else. it's a dangerous sport. and i think it's -- it's really tough. i thought the equipment would get better and it has. the helmets have gotten far better. but it hasn't solved the problem. >> now that unusually personal reflection came in an exclusive interview that aired on "face the nation" yesterday. >> this morning we had some remarks you hadn't seen yet. margaret asked the president about a potential threat from the democratic controlled house of representatives. >> are you prepared for an
7:11 am
attempt to impeach you? >> the only way they can win, because they can't win the election is to bring out the artificial way of impeachment. and the problem is you can't impeach somebody for doing the best job of any president in the history of our country for the first two years. and people have seen and people have watched what we've done. >> political -- >> no, it's political but it's supposed to be high crimes and misdemeanors. there was no high crime. there was no misdemeanor. there was no problem whatsoever. the only thing i've done is created maybe the best economy we've had in the history of our country. the only way they would win -- i look at the folks with the horrible situation right now with abortion where they're saying late term. they're not even talking about late term. they're talking about the baby is born and they can kill this child. this innocent child. what they're doing on abortion, what they're doing on high taxes, what they're doing at the border what they're doing in so many different ways, they want to cut our military, they want
7:12 am
to take our wealth and give it away, they want to tax people, not 70%, it's 100%. because what they want to do is you'd have to quadruple taxes. you wouldn't have enough money anywhere throughout the whole world you wouldn't have enough money. so if you look at what they're running on, they can't win. so the only way they could possibly beat me, because they're not going to win the election -- >> in 2020? >> they understand that. they cannot win the election. >> the president also gave a surprising reason for wanting to keep u.s. troops in iraq. >> well, we spent a fortune on building this incredible base. we might as well keep it. one of the reasons i want to keep it is because i want to be looking a little bit at iran. iran is a real problem. >> whoa, that's news. you're keeping troops in iraq because you want to be able to strike in iran? >> no, because i want to be able to watch iran. i want to be able to watch. we have an unbelievable and expensive military base built in
7:13 am
iraq. it's perfectly situated for looking at all over different parts of the troubled middle east. rather than pulling up -- and this is what a lot of people don't understand, we're going to keep watching. >> face the nation moderator margaret brennan is in atlanta where face the nation originated from yesterday. margaret, good morning. >> good morning to you. >> quite a long wide ranging great interview. let me ask you about the way that answer on iraq and iran resonated in the region. >> well, it did not go over well. iraq's president was forced to respond today and said do not overburden us with your issues. here's what president trump did that now makes it more difficult for our allies to do what we're asking them to. remember, u.s. troops need baghdad's permission in order to stay in that country. there are 5,000 troops already there. but their mission is to fight
7:14 am
isis. a battle that the president says has already been won. now the president says he wants to change the mission to watch iran and that sounds a whole lot like a threat against a neighboring country that has a lot of influence in iraq. so in short the president may have endangered delicate diplomatic talks that were under way and made it more difficult for iraq to do what america is asking it to do. >> margaret, you also asked the president about his read on what his intelligence chiefs had said about iran. what did he say about the nature of the disagreement? >> the president says he 100% disagrees if his intel chiefs tell him iran kindergarten. that was a quote. of course that's not what they're telling him. the cia director said iran is abiding by the terms of the nuclear deal. they're fonot currently buildina nuclear weapon. what they're presenting as fact is base obd sd on surveillance that has not changed the
7:15 am
president's opinion. >> also interesting to hear the president say he will not withdraw troops from the korean peninsula. a lot of news yesterday. a great interview, margaret, thank you. embattled virginia governor ralph northam is resisting calls to resign over a racist photonephoto in his medical school yearbook. which shows one man dressed as a kkk member and another in what appears to be blackface. over the weekend, the democrats changed course and said he's not in the photo. northam explained he had made a similar mistake in the same year the racist yearbook photo was taken. >> i did participate in a dance contest in san antonio in which i darkened my face as part of a michael jackson costume. i looked back now and regret that i did not understand the harmful legacy of an action like that. >> ed o'keefe is outside the governor's mansion in richmond, virginia. the governor is getting called to step down from both sides.
7:16 am
>> sure is. he back pedalled on saturday, saying he's not going anywhere after consulting with his family, his pasture and some v his former classmates. last night, he met with senior aides here at the mansion but there's been no new announcement from him. leaders from both sides of the aisle with calling on him to resign including presidential contenders and both of virginia's democratic senators. president trump even called his actions unforgivable. one state senator told us because of his dark secrets, northam has lost the confidence of fell yoel democrow democrats. if he stepped down, the lieutenant governor would step in, becoming the nation's youngest and only black governor currently. democrats are expected to meet today once again to see if there's any way to force him out. at that incredibly awkward news conference on saturday, we asked northam when he might realize he can no longer effectively lead
7:17 am
virginia. he he said, quote, take it one day at a time. >> awkward was the word for that news conference. when he was asked about moon walking, looked like he was about to do it until his wife stepped in. now to this big story, a deadly plane crash created a frightening scene in a southern california neighborhood. flames poured out of a home in yorba linda yesterday after part of the plane slamlmed into the building. two people escaped from the home but were injured. carter evans is in yorba linda. >> reporter: good morning. this is all blocked off. preserved for ntsb investigators. the plane actually crashed into a home down the street but it apparently started breaking up while it was still in the air. there's debris everywhere. did some serious damage to this home here. witnesses say it felt like an earthquake when the plane hit the ground. flames erupted from this two story family home in yorba linda sunday afternoon after part of the plane and one of its engines
7:18 am
slammed into it. >> i heard a huge explosion. >> reporter: the plane's body was found in a backyard of another nearby home. plane parts rained down across the neighborhood. this video shows a man using a garden hose to put out a fire on a wing. >> my friend's house down the street, parts of the engine flew into their house in the room he was just in. >> reporter: according to the ntsb, the twin engine cessna 414 took off from fuller ton municipal around. it climbed to about 7,800 feet. about ten miles into the flight, the plane began a rapid descent into the neighborhood. home surveillance video appears to show part of the plane falling from the sky. >> i looked up. i seen this huge piece. i don't know what it was. you could just watch it in slow motion. then i saw this go up. it was just awful. >> reporter: police say two men and two women inside the home were killed. along with a male pilot. >> they've been homeowners there for close to 40 years.
7:19 am
>> reporter: daniel ugalde said his longtime family friends were among the victims. >> they cared for their neighbors and for friends and family and they will be truly truly missed. >> reporter: ugalde says the homeowners were hosting an annual super bowl party yesterday but most people still hadn't arrived at the home when the crash happened. >> such a terrible story. th good monday morning to you. we are looking at off and on showers and lowering snow levels. by tonight, we'll be down to 1500 to 2,000 feet for the snow level. for the highs, not all that high. low to mid-50s across the bay area. and there we go with the 7-day forecast. the 7-day forecast.

7:33 am
feel pressured to look the other way when they see the potential safety problems on airplanes. in some of the cases, the federal aviation administration agreed with those mechanics. kris van cleave is at reagan international airport just outside washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. let's be clear, the u.s. is in an unparalleled period of aviation safety. there's been one death linked to a u.s. passenger accident in the last decade. in our interviews with more than two dozen airline mechanics, they talk about a pressure to turn planes around faster, a pressure they say can sometimes be too much. they're blaming an economic reality of the airline business. that reality is simply those planes don't make any money if they're not flying passengers. cell phone video captures a tense exchange between an american airlines mechanic and a manager in 2017. the faa found reason to believe a miami-based mechanic was retaliated against after reporting problems that pulled several planes out of service. >> if you single out one guy because he's doing his job, what
7:34 am
about all of us? what's going to happen -- >> it is a shortcut environment. >> reporter: gary santos is a longtime american airlines mechanic based in new york. he says he's risking his job talking on camera. >> they tried to pressure the individual not to write it up. >> reporter: they would rather you not report a maintenance issue? >> right. >> reporter: a sometimes-tense relationship between management and mechanics is not uncommon, every one of the 26 airline mechanics we spoke to, two-thirds from american and the rest from southwest airlines, described being pressured by managers to focus only on the work assigned. >> if you're working, say, on a landing gear, moving it, and you notice that a flap three feet away is leaking and you write up the flap leak, you're beyond your scope. >> reporter: claims backed up by findings in several faa whistleblower complaints about inappropriate pressure and retaliation since 2015 at the two airlines.
7:35 am
and at least 32 other anonymous industry-wide reports in the last four years. >> i've seen people walk off the job and held on suspension for a month or more because they reported problems that they supposedly were outside their scope. >> reporter: several mechanics with years on the job said they feared retaliation. >> constantly have people over your shoulder questioning why it takes so long. can't we skip a few steps? >> reporter: have you had managers use the words "can't we still some steps"? >> absolutely. the pressure is there, and the threats of termination and walking you off the airfield, as they would say, are very real and commonplace. >> reporter: the mechanics come from bases all over the country. were these for significant safety issues, or are we talking like a knob that needs to be tightened? >> no, significant safety issues. things that needed to be repaired.
7:36 am
worn tires, worn brakes, damage to the fuselage. >> reporter: cbs news obtained a transcript of a december, 2017, southwest employee conference call where senior v.p. of technical operations acknowledged, we definitely need to repair things with the faa. there are some things there with mechanics getting questioned. supervisors certainly getting questioned. so again, compliance, compliance, compliance. >> i think that is a good indicator of what our leadership tells our employees. maybe it is our highest priority. >> reporter: captain dave hunt is southwest senior director of safety management. you don't feel like your mechanics are being unduly pressured or threatened, chastised, criticized for find issues out of scope? >> i think any issue brought forward is taken seriously, acted upon, investigated, and we act on those. so any way we hear about an instance we carefully review
7:37 am
those. >> reporter: you're stopping short of saying that's not happening. >> whenever we become aware of a safety-related event, we take them all seriously and act on all of them all the same way. >> there's no question that there's a problem. >> reporter: former national transportation board member john goglia says it's unusual for so many mechanics to speak out publicly. that would be something that would stand out to you? >> stand out? that's standing out on the top of the hill screaming at the top of your lungs. >> reporter: he believes the pressure to speed up repairs and get planes back in service faster is a problem for mechanics industrywide. >> you have to dozen. i probably have 100 over the last three or four years that called with those complaints. i'm talking about calls from every single airline. >> reporter: david seymour is the senior vice president at american. >> safety is part of the culture, and know know if they don't do it safely to not do it at all. >> reporter: does it concern you that we're hearing a different account from a number of mechanics? >> it's not a concern for me because i think we have programs in place to make sure they can
7:38 am
report them. >> reporter: you say it's not a concern. we talked to a former ntsb board member who said based on the number of people we talked to and that several went on camera isn't just a red flag, he called it a field of red flags. >> what i'd tell you is allegations have been made. almost all have been dismissed. there have been issues that we've had to address. again, there's never been an allegation made that american airlines flew an aircraft that was unsafe. >> reporter: both airlines are in tense negotiations with the union over pay and benefits. >> i get on them every day, so i'm not concerned. it's like climbing a ladder where the top rung may be an accident or serious accident. every time you do something the way it's not supposed to be done, you're climbing another rung up the ladder. the risk gets severe. >> reporter: do you worry that pressure is going to result in an accident, something's not going to get fixed? >> those things keep me up at night.
7:39 am
>> reporter: these mechanics tell us the real concern is that over time this pressure could impact the overall safety culture. now in reference to the miami situation at the beginning of our story, american says it does not believe that was a case of retribution, adding that mechanic is on the job today. one faa official told us the agency does see some cases of undue pressure, but the belief is the fast majority of airline employees are trying to do the right thing. there is more on this to come. >> wow, so eye opening. you know, shortcut environment, not what you want to hear in terms of airline safety ever. >> no. i want to hear more about it. i thank people like gary santos and the other mechanics who are speaking out. suppose something happened and they said we knew about it all along, at least speaking out, maybe someone will take it seriously. >> keeps him up at night, too. >> frightening. singer and actor jussie smollett has a defiant message for the man he says attacked him and beat him. ahead, we'll take you inside smollett's first public

ability to target very specifically. the same things that allowed the russians to interfere in the brexit referendum in the uk and our elections also allow advertisers to reach exactly the people they want to reach. when i want to sell my book, i advertise on facebook and instagram because they are the place to reach people. i'm not surprised that the business is great. but that's not the argument i want to have. i just want a conversation about the future of our children. we just saw twice last week facebook was accused, in one case successfully, of legal challenge with respect to essentially taking advantage of minors with in one case credit card charges related to games, and in other case a product that spied on all their usage. >> roger, they clearly don't seem to want to have a conversation with you. you sound like in some respects a scorned lover who you had an inside track with sheryl and mark, and now they're not listening to you. my question is why should they listen to you? >> they don't have to listen to
8:36 am
me. the point here is maybe i'm the wrong messenger. that i think is clear relative to sheryl and mark. that's fine. ime want a discussion of the issues -- >> you had ra-- you had a relatp with them -- >> i have not -- >> they say you haven't had a conversation with them. >> i deal with it constantly. the thing is what i'm talking about is not about me. it's about the issues that facebook and google and other internet platforms, the issues that they're putting on america. the things they're putting on the whole world. everybody is there. and we're vulnerable when we're on those platforms. they -- here's a simple way to think about it -- when you go into a terms of service on an internet contract, do you read it? >> no. >> it would -- >> seven or eight years ago somebody checked. it would take you 78 days to read every single one -- >> that applies to many companies. >> no. that's right.
8:37 am
>> let's allow facebook, they said, we take the criticism seriously. over the past two years we've fundamentally changed how we operate to better protect the safety and security of people using facebook. let me ask you this, though -- do you have proof, evidence, that in cases where they have been told that they are allowing groups, foreign countries, others to siphon personal information, that they haven't acted quickly when they were made aware? >> one of the most basic ones was the department of housing and urban development cited facebook for advertising tools that allowed immigration in violation of the fair housing act. facebook claimed that they fixed the product and then pro publica did a series of studies that showed they had not done so. the federal trade commission went after facebook for essentially improperly failing to disclose to users what was happening to their data. and facebook did not, in fact, follow through and do what the federal trade commission asked. that's how cambridge analytica
8:38 am
happened. this is a repeated problem. there's been one great author at university of north carolina who characterizes facebook as a 15-year apology tour because their strategy is to maintain a black box where we can't inspect what's going on, and just my point here is that these products are so important that we need to have these investigations, we need to recognize that -- >> there does need -- you raised some question s. you have no evidence, just spidey sense that they should change. and that you're operating on hypothesis and not real evidence. you've raised issues, there should be a conversation. >> they have political power that dominates in this country and around the world. they're not elected, and the whole point of "zucked" is to give you as a voter and a citizen of the united states an opportunity to understand the questions and the issues. >> all right. roger mcnamee. provocative title, too. "zucked." goes on sale tomorrow. grammy nominated r&b artist h.e.r. says her stage name stands for having everything revealed.

get it? and what are you revealing? >> everything. >> everything? >> i think -- >> i can't even see your face. you're not revealing everything. >> right. i guess everything below the surface because that's who i am. it's not what you see. it's all about my message. >> ahead, h.e.r. tells us why she decided not to use the name she was born with. narrator: this february fall in love
