center. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there are a lot of politicians on this stage this week who are vouching for hillary clinton, the candidate. but president clinton seemed more focused on painting a picture of the kind of woman she is, a woman whose image he argued has been distorted by decades of gop attacks. >> i married my best friend. gentleman t >> reporter: the former president told their friendship and courtship and what she has brought to the marriage. >> she is a natural leader and a good organizer and the best darn change-maker i ever met in my entire life. >> reporter: he said republicans are trying to turn his wife into a cartoon fill-in. >> one is real. the other is made up. good for you. because earlier today, you nominated the real woman. >> 27 votes for the first woman president! >> reporter: earlier in the

7:09 am
and the case about change is interested me. donald trump is the change candidate. he's not a washington at all. bill clinton was beginning and you can't do it quickly. he was beginning the argument saying, this is why her skills make her an agent of change. even know you you've heard her name a lot and a member of the clinton family. >> this is more why he talked about incident after incident where she was a change-maker. >> that's right. what is interesting ed that change is hard and difficult, and that is you need hillary clinton because she will grind through it. that may be so but in a campaign it's much attractive to say change is easy and fun because i have the skills and attributes that make things happen in the real world. >> or only make. >> right. >> they certainly did want to hammer that, john. because they already had the change-maker signs ready and right on cue, they came up. some many people fear the status
7:10 am
quo, like been there, done that? >> this is a multiple month-long argument that they have to keep prosecuting because as i said, it's much easier to say let's throw them out. politics has worked usually for people who say throw them out, not take the person who can just do it slow and grindingly. >> that is the change element. the other element was trust. >> yes. and the argument there is you can trust her because she has a long history with the issues you care about and she has these values when nobody is looking and she wasn't famous and caring about kids and disabled and families and because she has that long record, she will bring it to the office with her but that is tough, given where her numbers are. >> one distraction last night, governor terry mcauliffe, a close friend with the clinton's suggested when clinton became president she would change her stance and support tpp. >> for two days they are saying she is against it and we don't like trade and terry mcauliffe
7:11 am
decide to undermine that. >> they came out quick and said she still doesn't support it. >> we spoke with senator elizabeth warren and discussed the democratic party and the role she might play in the general election, that includes needling donald trump. when with you campaign with hillary clinton, she had she loved the fact that you get under his skin. >> yep. >> how is it you do that and is that going to be the role you play in this campaign? is get under the skin of donald trump? >> donald trump is a bully. >> a bully? >> he is a bully. first, last, and in between. the only way to deal with a bully is stand right up to him and when they punch you, punch them right back. >> reporter: you want to punch him when he says pocahontas? >> you know, just want to say, come on! is that it? i talk about donald trump and i don't call him names. that's not the point. i talk about his policies, i talk about what he has done to people.
7:12 am
i talk about what he says about what he wants to do with this country. and all he can do is he wants to call names. that's it for donald trump. he is a thin-skinned racist bully, and he will never be president of the united states. >> donald trump referred to the senator as pocahontas because of her self-proclaimed native american heritage. warren says the party stands united despite last night's protests by sanders' supporters. the kremlin says the democratic national committee is making up excuse for saying they are responsible for the e-mail hack. the document leaked cause the democratic national party chair to quit. margaret brennan is at the white house with what the president is saying about it all. >> reporter: privately, u.s.
7:13 am
officials admit that russian spies hack the american targets far too often but what makes this alleged dnc break in so unprecedented is the wide release of the stolen data. >> i know that experts have attributed this to the russians. >> reporter: in his first public remarks about the dnc hack, president obama suggested that russia may be meddling with the election. >> is it possible in your mind that the russians would try to influence the u.s. election? >> anything is possible. >> reporter: the fbi is trying to determine how and why documents allegedly astronomical by russian intelligence from dnc computers months ago suddenly appeared on wiki leaks on the eve of hillary clinton's nominating convention. >> what the motives were in terms of the leaks and all that, i can't say directly. what i do know is that donald trump has repeatedly expressed admiration for vladimir putin. >> reporter: on tuesday night,
7:14 am
former secretary of state madeleine albright piled on. >> and given what we have learned about the russians' recent actions, putin is eager to see trump win. >> reporter: donald trump is strongly denying any political or financial ties to russia. >> i have nothing to do with russia. i never met putin. >> reporter: the russian government says it never interferes with other country's elections. now the white house must determine whether there is enough evidence to accuse putin of engineering the hacking. wiki leaks founder denied ties to russia and accused clinton of trying to distract the public. >> is it the natural instincts of hillary clinton and people around her when confronted with serious domestic political scandal, that she tries to blame the russians, blame the chinese, et cetera? >> reporter: he has promised that wiki leaks will reveal more damaging dnc e-mails.
7:15 am
charlie, the party is bracing for it. >> thanks, margaret. donald trump will campaign today in scranton, pennsylvania, the hometown of vice president joe biden. trump spoke to veterans in charchart choorlt charlotte, north carolina. paul manafort joins us. did wrush russia do the hacking enough to influence the presidential election? mr. obama was asked did the russians do anything to influence the convention? the president said, anything is problem. can you tell us what the campaign knows and what donald trump believes? >> we have no relationship. this is an absurd attempt by the clinton campaign to try to get the focus off of what the real issue is. the real issue isn't even the
7:16 am
democratic national committee's server being hacked. the real issue is her server in her home showing that the concern of the democrats have before national security is all talk and not really any reality. >> paul, i saw that trump tweeted yesterday he has zero investments in russia. but does russia have investments in trump? would mr. trump be willing to release his taxes to provide transparency on this issue? >> mr. trump has said that his taxes are under awe dudit and n releasing them. it has nothing to do with russia or any country other than the united states. and it is his normal tax
7:17 am
auditing processes. to be sure we dealt with when the audits are done. >> to be clear, mr. trump has no financial relationships with any russian olegards? >> that is what he said and that is, obviously, what our position is. >> can we turn to the issue of minimum wage? donald trump said yesterday that maybe we should raise it to $10 an hour. in the past, ed leave it alone o that he would change it slightly. what is his position on the minimum wage issue? >> we will be dealing with his national economic policy and some of his tax policies intercourse of the next several weeks as he makes several speeches dealing with these type of topics. in the meantime, i think what is relevant and need to be focused on is the democrats, who are coming up with all kind of proposals in this convention of theirs, claim how they are going to be paying for their outlandish statements they are making on programs that they are
7:18 am
promising. i also found it instructive that terry mcauliffe but the credibility of hillary clinton in play and once again has told bernie sanders' voters that no matter what we say to you, bernie sanders at the convention, we are still going to do it our way and still be for t.p.p. >> to follow up on what gayle said, mr. trump said yesterday to bill reilly on fox he believes he should raise it somewhat, the federal minute wage. to be clear donald trump believes in raising the federal minimum wage at $7.25? correct? >> donald trump said what he is and explained in an overall economic package we are doing the next two weeks. >> donald trump tweeted yesterday it remains to be seen what he sees going on at the convention. anything off limits on your side what you will do or say about this campaign? >> well, we find the situation like last night's speech, the
7:19 am
change agent speech was really quite humorous. hillary clinton is many things but one of the things she is not is a change agent. she has been part of the establishment and clearly expecting somebody who has created a mess to come in and try to fix it as a change agent is -- >> paul manafort, thank you for joining us. cbs news continues special coverage from the convention tonight at 10:00/9:00 central. president obama and vice president biden and vice president nominee tim kaine will speak. you can find nonstop coverage all day on our streaming news network cbsn. carmaker tesla takes a risk building one of the huge factories in the world. we take you inside the $5

8:06 am
when i was very young that i was supposed to run the world, and she was constantly telling me that women need to be more aggressive about taking their place in politics. she was active -- you know, i thought everybody stuffed envelopes when they were 10 years old. i thought everybody, you know, were going out and giving out nail files at speeches for candidates. so i really felt for women across this country who have participated in the political process, but never really been convinced that we could actually do this. and so it was an incredibly emotional moment, i think not just for me but women across this whole country. >> women and men were crying on the floor last night. >> they were. >> i think it was a moment that made you so proud to be a girl is what i was saying to people last night. i met a woman who was 75 saying i knew this would happen but i didn't think i would live to see it and i think that is what struck so many people in the hall yesterday.
8:07 am
>> that is exactly right. when you think about it, the with him who announced the vote for arizona, when she was born, we didn't even have the right to vote in this country. so in her lifetime, we have gone from not even having a say to now having, i think, the strongest and most capable candidate for president this country has seen in a long time. >> how important was it to have bernie sanders play the role that he played yesterday? >> first, i'm really proud of the way this process has worked. i was impatient with hillary clinton supporters on monday because everyone was expecting all of these people who worked their hearts out for bernie sanders, many of whom participated for the first time in the process, and it's hard to be a dealt, to get to be a delegate. they are all here and we expect them the first night of the convention to go, yea, hillary? that is not realistic. of course, they wanted to have their voices heard and we should respect and honor that. i think last night when bernie did what he did, bless his heart, he did the right thing and it was -- if you were in the hall, you felt it.
8:08 am

8:09 am
romance and that is something very nontraditional. you don't typically see that from a former president but i think it was necessary. charlie, i do. i think because people -- he's right. people are seeing her as a two-dimensional person because the attacks have been so relentless and for so long. and, you know, just demonizing her. so pulling her out of that and showing what a great wife and mother and leader she has been all of these years. >> why is that so hard, senator? because the people who know her say she is funny and she is warm and very caring but to the american public, they don't know that side of her. why do you think that is after all of this time? >> i think because she got attacked early and often, she got very defensive and knew she had to exude strength and i think she is so focused on exuding strength, it is hard for her to show vulnerability. >> where do you stand on t.p.p.? >> i think if we are going to do trade deals, it has to be really aggressive in terms of our
8:10 am
values. >> t.p.p. was not for you? >> i voted for the fast track but i think we have got work to do. i agree with our candidate for president that t.p.p. in its current form need more work before we can do it. but we have to make sure. i'm from an agriculture state. we got to make sure -- >> jumping on the fact that terry mcauliffe. >> terry mcauliffe shouldn't have said what he said and he made a huge mistake and terry is wrong. >> he is friends with hillary but he is wrong. >> he is wrong. >> it said that thing of trust on hillary clinton she will say one thing on the campaign trail and when president she will do something else. >> i think what we have shown in this convention she is consistent in her passion for children and families and children and families who don't have a voice and i believe she will, in fact, make sure that our products have a market around the world. but it's done in a way that is fair to the american worker. >> thank you. >> may i say you have the best glasses at the table? every time i see you, i want to go where you go. >> you have the best shoes at the table.
