7:05 am

7:06 am
president vladimir putin during that call, he said he hoped to forge a strong relationship between the russian people and it's government. and cbs news has learned mr. trump's transition team is exploring how some of his kids could get top secret security clearances. the potential move is raising some ethical concerns. julianna goldman broke this story and is in washington with what she's learned. juliana, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, the sources tells that you the president-elect donald trump transition team is looking to designate some of his adult children as national security advisers that they be able to receive the top secret security clearances. now, even if it doesn't happen during the transition, trump would still be able to put in the request once he becomes president. looking at the rules here. th they nepotism rules prevent them from working in the white house but not to serve as unpaid or
7:07 am
advisers. to put this in perspective, it's common for private citizens to get top secret security clearances, but family members are a totally different story. former intelligence and white house officials say trump's request is truly unprecedented, given that his kids don't have national security backgrounds. now ethics watchdogs are also sounding alarms, though. they say the fact that trump wants his children armed with access to some of the nation's top secrets raises more questions about the conflicts of interest playing roles in the trump administration while also running the family business and whether they could use the intelligence for their financial interest. now, norah, last night, a transition official told reporters that the president-elect did not request this step. and that trump's children had not filled out any paperwork about security clearances. the official added, quote, it's not something i'm expecting right now. >> great original reporting. thank you so much. cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator
7:08 am
john dickerson is here. as juliana reported this would be unprecedented for any children to have top security clearances. what do you make of it? >> well, the whole baskets of issues related to the trump family and the trump operation is really interesting. we just spent a campaign going through the connections between the clinton foundation and hillary clinton because there was a lack of transparency. there were muddy and fuzzy relationships and influence was being sought by various people through various connections. so that seems all in play here. so whatever happens, presumably, if they want to drain the swamp, the relationship with the family and the business would be very open and above boards. or the walls between the two would be very high, if president-elect trump wants to keep faith with the promises he made and all the criticisms he leveled during the campaign. >> can we talk about president obama's news conference yesterday, it went on much longer than many people thought but he appeared to be
7:09 am
reassuring, cautionary and complementary. and sending messages to people. what was your take-away? >> i think the biggest message to take away those worried about donald trump as president he was saying the office of presidency slows you down. which is funny, that's what those people were critical of him about, the change is not coming fast enough. you can take comfort in that because change is slow. he kept talking about the constraints on the president and the rules and norms that you have to follow. the use of that word "norms" is interesting, the one thing about trump's campaign it was norm-breaking. that what worries, he'll break those those norms. >> he was almost fwlaterring of the president which is a remarkable turnaround. >> they're both flattering of each other. president obama said he he's not ideological. he talked about his gifts. he seems to be sending messages through that flattery. the flattery was the appetizer
7:10 am
and the meal was don't get ahead of yourself here. get a good staff in place. don't be too radical, recognize you have to be slow in what you do. >> what do you think the point of that flattery was? >> donald trump's advisers have talked about how they sought to speak to him through the television. it was sending messages to his supporters and also to donald trump. >> and complimenting what he's done. >> that's right, recognizing and paying homage to it. also if you want to be totally crass and political for it, did he's going to criticize him later, he needs to not look like he criticized him out of the box. >> and he did not address the appointment of steve bannon. >> he did not. >> he did not on bannon's specific grounds, he said i'm not going to talk about every single pick. >> and remember, obama intends on living in washington for the next coming of years as his daughter finishes high school. you're going to have a president
7:11 am
and former president in the same town. >> george bush said a precedent to not talk about his former predecessor. is barack obama going to do that? >> and the cabinet posts. >> it's fascinating, as major pointed out, loyalty. here's the challenge, with donald trump with any presidency, if you surround yourself with loyalists, you cocoon, and it all gets wrapped into a tight bubble. >> is loyalty a trump thing, do you think? >> in this case, it's not always a bad thing. especially when that is reinforcing people around you, john kennedy talked about this early when you get into group think. on the other hand, you need loyaltyists who may be the only one who can tell the chief executive no because he trusts him. that's where the family is super important. >> thank you, major. so much to follow. an ohio state university student is facing assault
7:12 am
charges for allegedly hitting an anti-trump protester. >> hey! >> the video capture the man slamming into the protester, was knocked down the stairs. campus police took him into custody. more than 5,000 seattle students walked out of classes to protest the election. police say two men who were not students were arrested. more than 1,000 students in los angeles stormed the downtown plaza. signed said no hate, no racism no trump. president obama touched down in greece this morning as the start of this final trip abroad while in office. he joined the greek president. the president said part of his mission is to reassure allies about president-elect trump. >> in my conversation with the president-elect, he expressed a great interest maintaining our core strategic relationships.
7:13 am
and so, one of the messages i will be able to deliver is his commitment to nato and the transatlantic alliance. i think that's one of the most important functions i can serve at this stage, during this trip. >> margaret brennan is traveling with the president in athens. she's near the acropolis. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, president obama is confronting urine totally rattled by a donald trump election. they're worried that his actions will match his campaign rhetoric. despite will trump's assurances to the president that he will stand by nato. they worry that the friend outreach to russia means that vladimir putin will have free rein to do what he pleases. and there's concern that with european help may now be in jeopardy. that includes the iran nuclear
7:14 am
deal and the international climate change agreement. so any suggestion that america will retreat from global leadership really concerns europe which is also struggling with brexit. high unemployment, refugee crisis and the rise of nationalist groups here in greece, in germany and in the uk and in france. so, gayle, president obama has his work cut out for him, trying to reassure the long-term allies even though he's not fully sure what president trump will do. >> all right, thank you very much, margaret brennan reporting from athens. dry weather and droughts conditions across the south are fuelling an explosion of wildfires. thousands of acres have burned now and heavy smoke is raising air quality concerns. dozens of fires are still burn north carolina income, georgia, tennessee and other states. mark strassmann is in the northern georgia down of clayton right now. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, all of this charring comes from a rock mountain fire which has burned more than 5,000 acres and
7:15 am
is only 10% contained. and the smoke here is so thick, residents are being urged to wear air masks like these whenever they go outside. more than 70 wildfires stretch across eight southern states. those fires have already charred more than 100,000 acres and forced evacuations. >> oh, i'm concerned. it was up there at the top of the ridge and now it's down here. it's unnerving. it's scary. it's terrifyingin iterrifying. >> reporter: in north carolina, flames are threatening 17 structures. more than 20 wildfires are burn north carolina income many of them investigated for suspected arson. >> the way this fire is totally different. this is the worst thing i've ever been involved in. >> reporter: from the flames, massive plumes of smoke, so much that dozens of counties are facing air quality advisories. a view from nasa shows the extent of the smoke. some of it has started to drift into the metro atlanta area.
7:16 am
>> i have have asthma, being outside with them, i've noticed them coughing. >> reporter: making it difficult for firefighters. dry conditions and severe drought that faced region. >> i've got faith they're going to get it out and that we're going to be okay. >> reporter: another sense of the challenge here, there are 5,000 firefighters on the ground from as far away as colorado and california. and in this continuing drought, there is no rain in the forecast. norah. >> that is tough, mark. thank you so much. gwen ifill is being remembered this morning as a pioneering journalist, it's pbs co-anchor died monday of cancer. she was 61 years old. ifill leaves behind a legacy of
