we're also number one at being two and three. okay? >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. toyota. let's go places. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose and gayle king are enjoying some time off. anthony mason is here along with kevin frazier. >> good morning. >> good morning again. hillary clinton faces new pressure on two fronts. her ties to the clinton foundation and the e-mail from her private computer server while she was secretary of state. the state department is now under orders to review and release thousands of messages retrieved during an fbi investigation. >> they are not part of the roughly 30,000 documents the democratic nominee turned over two years ago. nancy cordes has clinton's late night response to the late east mail revelations. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. clinton aides say they don't know what's in these 15,000
e-mails and documents recovered from her servers by the fbi or how her lawyers missed them when they said they turned over all the e-mails. on late night tv she tried to make light of what has become a serious liability. >> we've already released i don't know 30,000 plus so what's a few more. >> have you considered using facetime instead of e-mail? [ laughter ] >> actually, actually, i think that's really good advice. >> that's a good idea. >> reporter: but in akron, ohio, donald trump and his supporters didn't find it that funny. >> now, we learn about another 15,000 e-mails. she failed to turn over. and they've just been discovered. >> reporter: on "jimmy kimmel live" clinton tackled an issue
about her health. >> take my pulse. >> okay. >> reporter: trump -- >> she also lacks the physical and mental stamina. >> reporter: clinton's doctor said she's in excellent health. >> it's part of the wacky strategy, just say all of these crazy things and maybe you can get some people to believe you. >> reporter: trump used the same approach to go after clinton's charity on monday. >> see, clinton foundation constitute the clear example of rico racketeering, influence corrupt organization enterprise. >> reporter: he insisted donors got favors from clinton's state department and he called for a special prosecutor. >> it's criminality, everybody knows this. >> reporter: the state department says it's not true. >> we have seen no evidence of any behavior, any relations with the clinton foundation that weren't completely above board. >> former president bill clinton did announce yesterday that he
will stop raising money for the foundation and step down from the board if his wife is elected president. but foundation officials have resisted for calls to step down altogether. they say that will deprive millions around the world of life saving medical treatment. the obama administration that his policy would be fair but firm. with speculation about whether he would deport millions of people who enter they spoke with supporters. major gator is in indiana following the trump campaign. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump denies what appears to be a clear way away from mass deportation. the best clue -- trump doesn't talk about it anymore. neither does anyone paid to speak on his behalf. what is unclear is what a trump
presidency would mean to an estimated 11 million undocumented illegal immigrants in the u.s. >> we're going to build a wall. >> reporter: donald trump clung to that applause line like a life raft in ohio. with the once pledge to deport all undocumented u.s. residents. trump now talks of deporting only hardened criminals and felons. >> the first thing we're going to do if and when i win is we're going to get rid of all of the bad ones. we're going to go through the process. >> reporter: trump would not explain what that process was or how it would work but he no longer insists it includes raids, arrests or lengthy deportation proceedings. >> i'm not going to put them in a detention center. >> reporter: a newly informed advisory council informed trump of the logistical challenges tied to mass deportation. now, he's dialing things back
while simultaneously wooing minority voters. >> it is a disaster the way african-americans are living in many cases. and in many cases the way hispanics are living. and i say it with such a deep felt feeling, what do you have to lose? >> reporter: trump described the world as squalor and hopelessness, offering himself as a potential savior. >> you could go to war zones that we're fighting and it's safer than living in some of our inner cities. >> reporter: there's another problem for trump. internal campaign chaos. visors said this week would be devoted to border security in speeches in colorado. those have been scrapped. now, the campaign says it wants to focus more attention on clinton's e-mail woes. >> cbs news contributor mark leibovich is the chief
correspondent for "the new york times" magazine. it's been nearly nine months since hillary clinton held a press conference. she chose late night tv to address the new questions. was that the right way to address it? >> well, they seem to think so. it's obviously a safe setting for her. she comes off well. most people do. as a member of the media, i have a horse in this race, i would love her to do a press conference as everyone else. >> what questions would you ask? >> why is it taking so long? if she's so glib about what's a few more e-mails, why haven't we seen them? what else is in there. i mean, i would be more pointed than that. but it's just very, very glib to come off and say in a situation that keeping lingering and politically, it's very frustrating. >> do you think the state department would say if there's evidence that there's not evidence it's completely above board. potentially how damaging is this
for her? >> that's the second batch of e-mail. >> yes, that's the second. it's very damaging. in the context, it's the damaging because it links the e-mails, two, questions about the foundation. put the two together, you have a possible not a quid pro quo, but certainly, the interactions between the two are carefully linked there. this also ensures it's going to linger through october. probably to election day and that's not something that any campaign would want. >> can we talk about donald trump for a second. being vague on immigration. something that was such a big part of his campaign early on. what are we talking? >> i don't think it will hurt him. they obviously have a strategy that says look we're going to be a little softer in our rhetoric here. hopefully, we don't eliminate our base. and pick off a few hispanic voters. this is the core of the issue. this is arguably the issue that
got him the nomination. >> do you think he can pick up hispanic supporters saying i'm not going to deport, i'm going to build a wall? >> well, it's going to be something, i'm going to be fair. i'mgoing to be humane. those are words he did not use during the primary. >> donald trump is raising questions about hillary clinton's stamina. her health. he says, we've never before in history had two candidates, nominees as old as trudonald tr and hillary clinton. she went on, in part by opening a can of pickles. what does it need to say more? >> you mean, the pickle test doesn't put away the test? >> i must say i have trouble opening a jar of pickles. >> i think hillary clinton in fairness has been more
transparent. her personal physician has released a letter that seemed authoritative but brief. >> it was two pages. >> she can say -- he's released virtually nothing. unless you count the two paragraph letter that his doctor released. i mean, so, yeah, i mean, i think people would like to see more. what i'm curious about in the larger sense is why do you make this an issue now if you're donald trump? the health, the stamina of your opponent. maybe he thinks he's selling some kind of doubt. there are other bigger issues to focus on, beginning with e-mail. >> thanks so much. the fbi is investigating a stabbing in virginia as a possible terror attack. a man and woman were seriously wounded saturday at an apartment building in roanoke. sources confirm the suspect tried and failed to get to syria earlier this year. 20-year-old wasil farooqui was
charged with the crime. investigators have known about him for months. he's described as self-radicalized but the motive for the attack is unknown. police think the victims were chosen at random, others say god was great was yelled during the stabbing. two areas of miami-dade county are designated zika zones where the virus is spreading. and there are 37 transmitted cases by local mosquitos. the governor visited one of those areas yesterday, while kids returned to school. david begnaud is in miami beach, as concerns about zika spread far beyond the warning zone. >> reporter: you got pregnant women moving and some goes somewhere else. you've got businesses worried about what the threat is going to do to them. this is one of the biggest
tourist hot spots. by far, it's been the sizzling feud between the mayor of miami beach and florida's governor. >> what the governor did, he not only blind sided me, he blind sided our administration. >> reporter: mike levine took aim at governor rick scott for failing to take them about zika indications on miami beach. >> i think it would be more useful in the future to let the elected leaders, let the administration know what's going on so we can take the necessary steps. >> reporter: governor scott fired back. >> i reached tout mayor levine, and unfortunately didn't return phone calls. >> reporter: two areas in miami-dade county, wynwood neighborhood and south beach are home to at least 37 locally transmitted cases. katrina bernard's third child is due in december. >> this isn't a cold. it's life or death. >> reporter: although bernard
lives outside of the zika zone, she's scared to leave her miami-dade home. what is the criteria? >> seeing babies with microcephaly, and seeing women having to make the choice to either not continue their pregnancy or just be dealt a very hard hand. >> reporter: there are 69 pregnant women in the state of florida infected with zika. the disease has been linked to babies born with microcephaly and can impact the child's head potentially causing seizures, mental delays and other problems. christina frigo is also from the miami area. earlier this month, she relocated to chicago and she plans to stay there for the remainder of her pregnancy. >> you inconvenience yourself so your baby is safe. >> reporter: we're reaching the peak of hurricane season, should we get a storm here, standing water after that storm will pose a real problem when it comes to mosquitos breeding and transmitting the zika virus.
norah, they will fine you for standing water, even a little bit of it, because, remember, those mosquitos can breed in something like this, a bottle cap. that small. >> david, thank you so much. thunderstorms are forecast in southern louisiana during president obama's avisit. the president will make his long awaited visit to the states to tour areas december stated by the disastrous flooding. it skikilled 13 people. manuel bojorquez is there. >> reporter: good morning. there are flooded out vehicles where you can see the water line, just how high the water came herer and their belongings destroyed. a previous pickup has start neared baton rouge, but removing all of it could take months. >> it just breaks my heart. and it's devastating, and you don't know what you're going to do. and you're just scared,
honestly. >> reporter: you're scared right now? >> yes. >> reporter: the fear of what comes next is setting in for nicki mcdonald and thousands more in louisiana where lifelong possessions now rest in piles on the side of the street. what's it like when you look at your neighborhood right now? >> it's just devastating. i mean, going down the street, you see people's entire house is on the street right now. all of this stuff that they've accumulated and worked for is just sitting on the streets right now. >> reporter: everything? >> everything. >> reporter: the same is true for wallace and shirley amons. they lost everything in their baton rouge home. >> all of my treasures, everything, are on the side of the road. and we don't know what we're going to do. >> reporter: the couple in their 70s is now faced with the daunting task of having to start over. >> we wanted to come back home, and we can't.
we still have our life, minus the home. >> reporter: like 80% of people in louisiana, neither the amons nor mcdonald'ses have flood insurance. with 60,000 homes damaged and more than 106,000 registered for emergency federal aid, officials here say the recovery could take years. >> the people that didn't have flood insurance which is most of the people in this area, i just don't know what they're going to do. they need assistance. they need money from fema. we need attention. we need someone to help us out. >> reporter: that's what many people here say they would like to express to the president. they need help. and beyond the financial assistance. they say right now, they need volunteers help clear out damaged homes and clean up all of this debris. anthony. >> manuel, thanks. firefighters are struggling to contain a series of wildfires burning this morning in northeast washington state. it's destroyed more than a dozen

ending or not renewing their sponsorship with lochte. speedo said in a statement, we cannot condone behavior that is counter to the values this brand has long stood for. mellody hobson at the table. good morning. this is turning out to be very expensive for ryan lochte. >> very expensive. in the scheme of things the number he's making from endorsements isn't huge, but for him, it's big. reportedly, about $1 million a year. that's down from $2.3 million a year after the london olympics. to put that in perspective, someone like lance armstrong lost something like $20 million a year after the scandal that happened for him. you look at lebron james right now at his peak, he's making $50 million plus for sponsorship. >> how does a company like ralph lauren say let's drop this deal? >> well, very easily. they have morals clauses in all of these endorsement deals. that state if you do something that potentially tarnishes our
brand, we are out. and they're ruthless about it. they have to be. the brand is everything. and people know that going in. and when the actions are not commensurate with the brand, they make the right decision. >> in 2009, a photo surfaced of swimmer michael phelps. and it looked like he was inhaling marijuana. only one sponsor dropped him. why the difference with that? >> right, that was kellogg's. very big difference. first, many people view that a youthful because he was in his 20s. in the case of lochte, 32. not really youthful. and immediately after it surfaced, phelps apologized within 24 hours. this story went on for days. the story changed. and some are not happy with exaggerating the facts. so i think that's a very
different scenario. i think last but not least, it was the idea that they -- one is a superstar. greatest of all time in the pool. and the other is obviously an olympic medalist, but very different in terms of their profile. >> what's this going to mean for future deals for him? do you think there will be any? >> i think it's going to be very hard. i talked to the cpany yesterday. they said, no, they wouldn't touch it. >> thanks. only on "cbs this morning," uber next drive into the future. coming up -- a front row seat with a company developing self-driving big rigs is amazing. if you're heading out the door you can watch us live through the cbs "all-access" app on your digital device. you won't want to miss the doctor on the new warning on the amount of sugar your kids should be eating. we'll be right back. i want my blood sugar to stay in control. so i asked about tresiba®.
