7:04 am
quote written all over it. iran's foreign minister denies it, calling the accusations part of a plot. >> the u.s. points to this video released overnight that american officials say shows iran removing evidence from one of the tankers. this all happened in the gulf of oman, not far from the strait of hormuz, a hugely important waterway for global oil shipments. david martin is at the pentagon. david, what is the u.s. saying about the attack? >> good morning. a u.s. official says the evidence iran is behind the attack on the two tankers is compelling. the question now is, what does the trump administration plan to do about it? >> this assessment is based on intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation. >> one reason secretary of state pompeo laid the blame squarely on iran is this video. the u.s. says it shows an iranian patrol boat coming alongside and removing an unexploded mine from one of the tanker's hulls.
7:05 am
making off with the evidence, in other words. u.s. said other mines planted by iran did explode. leaving one tanker so badly damaged it was in danger of sinking and the other in danger of drifting into iranian waters. cbs news consultant retired admiral sandy winnefeld explained how the attack could be pulled off. >> it's a fairly high-skilled attack. conducted by a small boat coming alongside the ship and attaching a limpet mine. >> owner said before the attack the crew saw flying objects. suggesting mines were not the cause. regardless of how the attack occurred, the bottom line is the same. >> at the end of the day, this will create more instability in the gulf region. it's not going to help things at all. when there's less stability in the gulf region, for americans that means potentially higher prices at the gas pump and potential for conflict should this escalate. >> secretary pompeo said the
7:06 am
u.s. response to the attacks would focus on diplomatic and economic measures. >> iran should meet diplomacy with diplomacy. not with terror, bloodshed and extortion. >> u.s. officials say no military strike against iran is imminent. but winnefeld says he doesn't think it would take much more from iran to trigger one. tony? >> david, if the u.s. is correct and iran is behind these attacks, what would the country gain by striking tankers? >> well, right now the u.s. is using economic sanctions to try and cut off iran's oil exports. which are its main source of revenue. so right now iran is fighting for its economic life. and by attacking tankers coming out of the persian gulf, it is sending a message to other countries in the world that it still has the power to put their oil supplies at risk. and i think their hope is that if they can create enough sense of uncertainty about their energy supplies, among other
7:07 am
countries in the world, those countries will convince the u.s. to ease off on its pressure campaign against iran. >> david martin for us at the pentagon, thank you. u.s. sanctions on iran already had raised the potential risk of a response in the region. we want to go to charlie d'agata, along the gulf of oman with why this area is such a flash-point. he's reported already extensively from the middle east and is there again this morning. charlie, good morning. >> good morning. well it's hard to overstate how crucial these waterways are to the transportation of oil and gas from this region. a third of all shift oil comes through here and because of the narrow waterway, the strait of hormuz is situated just off the coast of oman it gives the country is significant point of leverage. yesterday's incident follows similar coordinated attacks that targeted four tankers off this port here. iran denies involvement in those
7:08 am
attacks, too. but iran hasato t hi vital artery whenever there's a dispute with the u.s. or its regional allies. including saudi arabia or here in the uae. just a couple of weeks ago we were aboard the "uss abraham lincoln" carrier and the admiral told us one of their primary missions is to safeguard the free flow of commerce in this region. well, it's also worth remembering that the "lincoln" was sent here specifically in response to perceived iranian threats. it hasn't proven to be much of a deterrent. michelle? >> charlie d'agata. we thank you. one of the president's, one of president trump's most fierce public defenders is leaving the white house. press secretary sarah sanders said yesterday she will step down after nearly two tumultuous years, paula reid is at the white house, what does her departure mean for mr. trump?
7:09 am
>> good morning, michelle. the president is losing one of his longest-serving advisers and closest aides, yesterday the president announced sanders would be leaving her service to by amplifying some of the president's most controversial claims. >> the president is losing one of his most loyal soldiers. >> we've been through a lot together and she's tough. but she's good. >> sanders has been a fierce defender of the president. when the president gets hit, he's going to hit back harder. >> and helped shape the public face of the presidency, by reshaping the role of press secretary. mostly by stepping aside and letting the president be his own communicator in chief. the white house briefing effectively died on her watch. the last one was 95 days ago. the liberal media should be absolutely embarrassed by their behavior over the last two years. >> sanders frequently echoed the president's talking points. >> there was no collusion there was no obstruction. no obstruct.
7:10 am
>> her credibility as frequently been called into question. even by robert mueller. for defending the president's firing of james comey. >> the rank and file of the fbi had lost confidence in their director. >> sanders later admitted to special counsel investigators she had no basis for that claim and it was made in the heat of the moment. >> i said that it was in the heat of the moment. but the big take-away here is that the sentiment is 100% accurate. >> and there were many heated moments. >> this is day after day. and it's not just the president. the only person that i see a war on is this president and everybody that works for him. >> behind the scenes she faced death threats. >> i'm the first press secretary in the history of the united states that's required secret service protection. >> still, sanders called her tenure the opportunity of a lifetime. >> i've loved every minute. even the hard minutes, i've loved it. >> sanders is expected to leave her post in the next few weeks.
7:11 am
the process is under way to find her replacement and officials tell cbs news it's likely the replacement will come from outside the press office. thank you. we're hearing now for the first time from the man accused of shooting boston red sox legend david, big papi ortiz. dominican republic say rolfy herrera cruz pulled the trigger at the bar sunday where ortiz was shot at almost point-blank range. we're covering the story from santo domingo. what did he say? >> well michelle, dominican police say that rolfy herrera cruz confessed to shooting david ortiz as part of a nearly $88,000 hit job. in the cell phone video you mentioned, cruz claims that ortiz was not his intended target. >> rolfy cruz peered through the barred window of his holding cell. trying to get a message to reporters.
7:12 am
it's not david, i was confused, he said. they only told me the color of his clothes he said. appearing to indicate he didn't realize it was ortiz when he fired the shot. cruz is one of nine suspects detained in connection with the shooting at the dial bar and lounge. police rushed the suspects to and from court thursday, running past reporters as we shouted questions. >> rolfy, rolfy, did you do it? did you do it? >> they tossed each of the prisoners into pickup trucks before jumping in the back themselves and racing off. >> this is what they describe as the transfer of prisoners, i've never seen anything like this, it's more of a rugby scrum. >> a nin can journalist said the shooting has affected the dr greatly. >> david is beloved here. >> it's big papi here. >> back in boston, ortiz is still recovering in intensive care. ht findf tagram post his
7:13 am
complaining on a daily basis, but my dad hasn't complained once. police here are still looking for at least one more suspect who is also wanted back in the u.s. for attempted homicide. authorities here in the dr have not said who ordered the hit on one of the country's most beloved and famous athletes or why. meanwhile, the suspects currently detain reasonable doubt expected to have a hearing later today. >> all right. mola, thank you. the why is what people want answered at this point. >> and who was the target? cuba gooding jr.'s attorney says new surveillance video will exonerate the hollywood star of a groping accusation. he pleaded not guilty to two charges stemming from a visit it a new york bar last weekend. nicky batiste is outside the new york police department's special victims unit. he voluntarily turned himself but he is seen walking out in
7:14 am
handcuffs. why? >> that's right, tony. he was in police custody here for about six hours yesterday. before being arraigned in court. he's charged with misdemeanor counts of forceable touching and sex abuse in the fourth degree. but gooding's attorney says surveillance video shows he did nothing illegal. walking free without bail. actor cuba gooding jr. said little after leaving manhattan criminal court thursday evening. >> you maintain that you didn't do anything wrong? >> yes. >> what do you say about the video? >> watch it. >> gooding's attorney says this security footage posted by tmz shows the moment in question at a new york city bar sunday night. gooding appears to be sitting next to two women. and reaching over to touch one of them. cbs news has not been able to independently verify the video. >> mr. gooding has not acted inappropriately in any shape or form. nothing in the video could even
7:15 am
be considered ambiguous. and i frankly am shocked and horrified that this case is being prosecuted. >> the 29-year-old accuser claims gooding was intoxicated and squeezed her breast without her consent. despite the allegation, legal analysts paul bautista doubts the case will go to trial. >> i think it is being treated differently, given the level of his notoriety. >> show me the money! >> praise for his roles in "jerry maguire" and "boys in the hood" he faced a second ale gags yesterday, dating back to 2008, that his attorney denied. >> somebody came out of the woodwork and alleged there was touching. i spoke to cuba, he has no knowledge of it. >> no charges have been filed against gooding in that case. but the charges filed against
7:16 am
him yesterday, carry a maximum penalty of 15 months d b in court on june 26. this morning, canadians are celebrating the country's first nba championship courtesy of the toronto raptors. the "toronto star" front page reads we the champs. they toppled the golden state warriors in game six of the nba finals. cbs co-host dana jacobsen is here with more. >> it was just a four-point win for toronto that capped off a game in which we saw 18 lead change, with neither team ever able to go up by double digits. and while the raptors' kawhi led leonard was named the series mvp there was plenty of praise to go
7:17 am
around. >> there's a new nba champion. >> as the series most valuable player, kawhi leonard held his hands high in oakland, california's oracle arena. while a huge crowd of raptors fans, including super fan drake celebrated some 2200 miles away, outside scotiabank arena. >> this is what i play basketball for, this is what i work out for all summer, during the season and i'm happy that my hard work paid off. >> leonard dominated the series. averaging more than 28 points per game. but he wasn't the only raptor standout. fred vanfleet scored 22 points, including five three-pointers. the golden state warriors, the reigning nba champs for the past two seasons had battled back from a three games to one deficit. hoping to tie the series last night in game six. >> a foul. >> but warriors star klay thompson who has scored 30 points was forced out of the
7:18 am
game with a knee injury. >> he's out for the rest of the game. >> the team had already lost last year's finals mvp kevin durant, who ruptured his achilles tendon during game five monday. the warriors' loss came amid a bittersweet farewell to oracle arena, which the team is leaving after 47 years for a new home in san francisco.% >> hopefully every fan that was in this building appreciates the journey and the ride for 47 years. and turn the page to bigger and better things. >> as for kawhi leonard, he joined the history fwhooks another way last night. he was named the mvp when the spurs won the championship in 2014. he joins kareem abdul-jabbar and lebron james as the only players to be named mvp with two different franchises and the first to win in both conferences, the east and the west. >> so much drama in these games. and right up to the very end. we saw klay thompson go out, he was going to the locker room
7:19 am
when he suffered his injury. they realized if he had gone out and had not shot his free throws, couldn't have come back in. came in and shot the free throws and had to go out. wait for the off-season in the nba. let me say that. >> a lot of names out there. >> sure are, dana, thank you very much. new york moves to clamp down on the worst measles outbreak in good friday morning to you. we made it to friday and cooler temperatures. enjoy it. hires around where we should be for this time of year. low 80s fairfield, concord, livermore and san francisco. mid-60s san francisco and 60 in pacifica. all thanks to strong onshore flow. a little cooler on saturday. still looking great on father's day for sunday. heating up next week inland but cool along the coast.

7:32 am
every year. ctm national correspondent jericka duncan set out to find out why. >> this is why we do what we could as journalists, to delve into the issues. we spent the day with a child protective services worker in alleghany, wisconsin, for the protection of the children we agreed to hide the parents' identities. this is a story about the challenges facing the men and women tasked with ensuring the safety of children across this country. >> relapse is my biggest concern. >> this woman is pregnant with her fifth choild and admits using methamphetamines as recently as two weeks ago. it's britney plamann's job to determine whether the kids living here are in danger. >> we have some packets of information, one for each child. >> as a case worker for the children youth and family division in alleghany county, wisconsin, plamann has helped by

7:34 am
who is, who is going to suffer from this the most. >> in 2017 alone. an estimated 1720 children died from abuse and neglect in the u.s. more than a quarter of those children were previously known to child protective services agencies. the issue came to light earlier this year. with the death of 5-year-old ajfreund in illinois. >> investigators located what they believe to be aj's body buried in a shallow grave. wrapped in plastic. >> police charged his parents with murder. child welfare workers had been called to their home before. >> stories like that frustrate state senator bill diamond who has been focused on this issue for two decades. >> the former teacher has introduced a bill pushing for a long-term commission to study the problems within his state's child protective services department. >> kids are being abused right now while you and abused, terri. the only reason we don't know who they are is because they
7:35 am
haven't died yet. >> experts say case workers in many areas are underpaid and overworked see increased more than 12% since 2013. partly because of tougher laws requiring the reporting of suspected abuse. along with an increase in calls related to the opioid epidemic. this mother says her addiction began with a prescription for painkillers after oral surgery 15 years ago. >> i've never been, i would hate to become homeless. but there are worse things. not being with my children would be one of them things. >> have you ever had your children taken from you? >> yes. >> here in outagamie county, the number of kids in foster care has doubled over the past four years. but britney plamann says she believes the children in this household are safe for now. with their father at home, and with the additional assistance the county is providing. >> do you think this issue doesn't get enough attention? >> more often than not, it's the bad stuff that surfaces, not the
7:36 am
good. and i feel like that needs more attention, because there's a lot of good that comes from child welfare. it's not just about removals. >> the bottom line here is child protective services workers say it's heart-wrenching to take kids away from their parents and try to avoid it unless it's necessary. they say they can reduce risk, but can't entirely eliminate the possibility that parents or caregivers will make tragic decisions after they leave. so you know, this hits close to home i think, a lot of social workers in my family. you forget just how difficult this work is. and to keep doing it. you know -- >> they're overworked, underpaid. there has to be an emotional toll. >> and these people are staying, especially in outagamie, about three years on average. the manager who oversees this department says it takes about two years just to train them. so as soon as you train the people that are ready, they leave. they get burned out.
7:37 am
>> very, very difficult. but what i wanted to say, too, is the manager of that department, which i loved, she said that this is not just hard work, it's heart work. and there's more of that interview that you can find on our website, cbsthismorning. >> so grueling, but so important. amanda knox is back in italy for the first time since her acquittal in that murder case that made headlines around the world. ahead, we're there to see how she's handling the media spotlight. if you're on the go, subscribe to our podcast. you'll hear the day's top stories in less than 20 minutes.

7:39 am
jardiance can cause serious side effects including dehydration, genital yeast or urinary tract infections, and sudden kidney problems. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. a rare, but life-threatening, bacterial infection in the skin of the perineum could occur. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of this bacterial infection, ketoacidosis, or an allergic reaction. do not take jardiance if you are on dialysis or have severe kidney problems. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. so, what do you think? now i feel i can do more to go beyond lowering a1c. ask your doctor about jardiance today. what if i introduce you to my ♪amily now?

amanda knox is fwhak italy for the first time since being acquitted of murder eight years ago. cameras greeted the former exchange student when she arrived yesterday for a criminal justice conference. she went through multiple trials following the 2007 murder of her roommate. the case attracted global attention. seth doan is following her
7:42 am
visit. what's the reaction been to her return? >> well, anthony, we are here at the conference in which she is taking part. there's a lot of support for her here. her presence in italy has reignited a media firestorm. and according to the lawyer for the family of the victim, meredith kircher, it has reopened old wounds. she was only in the conference with her fiancé for a few minutes this morning before the glare was too much. organizer telling us she was traumatized by the media. but amanda knox knows cameras. they trailed her for years here, though on this trip her first back to italy since 2011, she appeared shaken. she's here to take part of in a conference hosted by the italy innocence project. which frees those wrongly imprisoned. before coming to italy. she posted pictures and published an essay, writing while on trial for a murder i didn't commit, my prosecutor painted me as a sex-crazed
7:43 am
femme fatale and the media profited for years on the sensational story. knox served four years in an italian prison for the murder and sexual assault of her roommate, meredith kircher, she left italy when she was acquitted in 2011, but later was found guilty in absentia in a third trial and was finally exonerated by italy's supreme court in 2015. amanda knox said returning to italy was either a homecoming, a deployment or madness. >> i guess it could be a homecoming deployment and madness. >> seth miller is the executive director of the innocence project of florida. >> this is a place where something really bad happened to her and i think it's natural that there would be some anxiety and worry about coming back to this place. >> in the essay, knox refers to herself as a journalist and explains she's working on a true crime podcast which attempts to rehumanize those thrust into the media spotlight.
7:44 am
knox did return to the conference a little bit later. now throughout the day since she arrived in italy, she has pretty much successfully dodged the media. we know she's being followed by her own personal videographer. we cannot exclude the possibility that some of this is being choreographed for her own camera. >> she seems to run from the cameras, but be attracted to them. >> i can understand the push and pull because in a lot of ways when she was on trial over in italy she kind of lost control of her identity. her name was everywhere. but she didn't get to say anything. now she's trying to say something. but she has to deal with all of this stuff. >> thank you, seth doane. uta is here with other stor good friday morning.
7:45 am
