announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by toyota. let's go places! ♪ welcome to "cbs this morning." president-elect donald trump is having an extraordinary public argument with the cia over russia's role in the u.s. election. he dismisses the intelligence community's conclusion that russian hacking was part of an effort to defeat hillary clinton. >> in fact, mr. trump calls the finding ridiculous and suggests democrats are behind it. margaret brennan is at the white house with the escalating feud over intelligence. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president obama has ordered a full review of russian interference in the collection by january 20th, the day donald trump takes office. now the president-elect is suggesting the cia is aligned against him. >> i think it's ridiculous. i think it's just another exc e excuse. i don't believe it.
7:04 am
>> reporter: in a harsh rebuke to the cia, president-elect donald trump says he does not believe that russia intervened in the u.s. election to help him win and said democrats made it up. >> they have no idea if it's russia or china or somebody. it could be somebody sitting in a bed someplace. i mean, they have no idea. >> why would the cia put out this story that the russians wanted you to win? >> i'm not sure they put it out. i think the democrats are putting it out because they suffered one of the greatest defeats in the history of politics in this country. >> reporter: mr. trump's comments directly contradict the cia's conclusion that russia tried to damage hillary clinton's campaign by leaking e-mails hacked from democratic party computers. asked about his mistrust of the intelligence community, mr. trump said, he doesn't need his daily intelligence briefings on threats facing the u.s. >> i don't have to be told. i'm like a smart person. i don't have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years. >> reporter: senate leaders are

7:06 am
president-elect chooses the top diplomat. exxon mobile ceo rex tillerson has emerged for the leading candidate for secretary of state. he is drawing attention for his close ties to russian president vladimir putin and one called him highly professional. this morning, nancy cordes is following the reaction to tillerson in washington. >> reporter: good morning. trump aides floated mr. tillerson's name in part to gauge what they would get from their own party. the reaction is mixed and some say tillerson is a proven his friendly relationship is what they don't want in a secretary of state. >> rex tillerson? >> he is a great man. see what happens. >> reporter: in a quick exchange with reporters at the army/navy game, the president-elect played coy about his top cabinet pick, though in an interview, he praised tillerson's credentials as the head of an oil and gas behemoth for nearly a decade. >> is much more than a business
7:07 am
executive. i mean, he is a world class player. he is in charge of the largest company in the world. >> reporter: it's not quite the largest company in the world, but exxonmobil has struck big drilling deals with oil-rich russia. tillerson is considered to be one of the american ceos who know vladimir putin best. the kremlin even awarded him the order of friendship. >> a matter of concern to me he has such a close, personal relationship with vladimir putin and, obviously, they have done an enormous deals together that that would color his approach to vladimir putin and the russian threat. but that is a matter of concern. we will give him his chance. >> reporter: another republican senator, florida's marco rubio, tweeted being a friend of vladimir is not an attribute i am hoping for from a secretary of state. picking tillerson to be the america's top diplomat would mean passing over former gop nominee mitt romney but mr.
7:08 am
trump is looking towards picking romney's niece, mcdaniel, to head the republican national committee and would place reince priebus who left the rnc to be mr. trump's white house chief of staff. >> michael morrell is a former acting director and deputy director of the cia and supported hillary clinton for president and joins us now from washington. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> help us understand this. what is the difference between the conclusions of the fbi and the cia? >> so even before the election, charlie, the entire u.s. intelligence community believed that the russians were interfering in the election. >> that includes the fbi? >> that includes the fbi. it wasn't clear at that time the motive. what has changed now -- this is not official, right? this is all based on leaks. what has changed now, it seems that the cia believes that the intent here was to advantage
7:09 am
donald trump and disadvantage hillary clinton in the election so this is what is different. >> how did the cia reach that conclusion sgh. >>? >> one of the things that caught my attention, charlie, was that the cia believes it's a high confidence judgment and the cia doesn't come to a high-confidence judgment just based on circumstantial evidence, so i think they have got more here. i think they have got sources who are actually telling them what the intent was. >> so how significant is it, mike, especially with you using the phrase high-confidence judgment, that the president-elect is publicly disputing the cia? >> what i think is going on here is that he believes that this is a political judgment. he believes that the cia is a political institution and he is going to have to learn that it's not. it is a political. it is there to tell him -- call them like you see them. it is -- it is the most important institution to him in that regard. it's going to tell him how to
7:10 am
think about the world in a way that is divorced of politics and divorced of policy. and he is going to have to start understanding that. >> it's kind of a knock on you, mike, because you were in the cia when that wmd assessment was made. what are your thoughts about that? >> so i think -- look. does the cia get everything right? absolutely not. right? was a rock wmd one of our biggest failures? yes. but the cia gets most things right. one of the things that most people don't know is that we actually track how well our judgments stand up over time, and when you look at those averages, right, it's a fielding percentage, not a batting average. it's very, very high. cia gets most things right. and donald trump is going to need to understand that. >> you briefed george w. bush every day at intelligence briefings. we heard donald trump say yesterday, i don't have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day. is that what these intelligence
7:11 am
briefings are, just the same thing repeated every day? >> interestingly, i think i understand where the president-elect is coming from. he is seeing the pdb as it's written for president obama and after eight years, these pieces written for president obama are very tactical and they assume a significant amount of knowledge on the part of the reader. so if -- if the briefer is just focusing president trump on those pieces, then i understand where he is coming from. so what the briefer has to do is use those pieces as a launching point to talk about bigger strategic issues. >> interesting. >> michael morrell, thank you. >> you're welcome. in our next half hour, we will talk to senators chuck schumer and john mccain about the cia's evidence of russian harking. one of china's newspapers calls donald trump ignorant as a child. they would not be bullied over
7:12 am
the one china policy. taiwan and hong kong are seen as part of china. china's government is angry that trump is reaching out to taiwan's president. the president-elect laid out his view over the weekend. >> i fully understand the one china policy, but i don't know why we have to be bound by a one china policy, unless we make a deal with china. having to do with other things, including trade. >> the chinese reported the following. if it is compromised or interrupted, the sound and steady growth of the china u.s. relationship will be out of question. the u.s. has maintained this policy since 1979. a massive storm is blasting millions of americans with snow and freezing rain from the great lakes to the northeast. the snow piled up on roads in michigan overnight and made the driving there very dangerous. cars skidded onto the shoulder
7:13 am
and some places got more than 6 inches of snow. this map shows the arctic air swirling over the northeastern tier of the country. areas in washington state to maine have new snow on the ground right now. tony dokoupil is in jamestown, new york, in the middle of the storm. >> big stretches of upstate new york are under more than two feet of snow this morning. sometimes much more than two feet. take a look at this street sign next to me. it's all contributed to more than 90 crashes in this county alone. >> reporter: snow and ice buried parts of the midwest and northeast sunday night. covering cars, coating roads, and sending drivers careening off of them. the thick blanket of powder looked beautiful from the air. but it was a nightmare on the ground. difficult to clean up and nearly impossible to drive through. >> one of the worst storms you've dealt with? >> one of. this just one stops and no break at all. >> reporter: jeff runs a towing company in western new york.
7:14 am
his drivers have been working around the clock. >> i give them a lot of credit for staying in it. i mean, they are tired, they are wore out. this snowstorm just didn't quit. >> my people handle over 50 just car crashes. >> reporter: the county sheriff joe gerashi not unfamiliar to see several crashes after the first major storm. >> speed is the major fact in most of the crashes. they go too fast. >> reporter: icy conditions contributed to this pileup in michigan on interstate 75 and a plane slid off the runway after landing at detroit metro airport during the storm. at most airports, the problem was simply getting off the ground. more than 1,200 flights were cancelled at chicago's o'hare and midway airports through sunday. richard watson is worried about his health after getting stuck during the layover. >> well, i'm a little concerned because i am a liver transplant patient and last night was the last dose of anti-rejection meds
7:15 am
that i'm carrying so i need to get back to washington today. >> reporter: jamestown may get a break later today with the snow falling, turning to rain. but they have another 15 feet of snow, on average, in a winter before the season is through. >> thanks, tony. it is snowing hard in much of new england. this is how it looks right no you in worcester, massachusetts. danielle niles of wbz is in and over near the new hampshire border. danielle, good morning. >> reporter: charlie, good morning to you. so i have to say just within the last 30 minutes or so, we have made the transition over to rain after a sloppy, just over 2 inches of snow. not a big storm here in southern new england, but enough to snarl the commute with really poor timing here. satellite and radar shows the snow across central and northern new england. that rain/snow line has been progressing northward here and will continue to do so through the remainder of the day. a lot of this is going to be wrapping up from west-to-east pretty quickly here by morning and afternoon. snowfall totals are going to be
7:16 am
most impressive the farther north you head so it's been a couple of inches here in southern new england. some spots seeing 3, 4 inches, 5 by the time it's all said and done. 6 more from northern new hampshire, as much as a foot in the highest terrain of the white mountains stretching back up to the crown of maine by the time the day is done. after that, it's all about the cold. big blast coming in and big trough that is going to dig down out of central canada and that is going to spread east and what that means for portions of the northern plains, midwest, and here in the northeast, as there will be single-digit temperature readings and windchill values subzero accompanied by snow squalls for friday and saturday. >> that is cold, danielle. a jury has convicted the man charged with killing former pro football player will smith. a new orleans jury found cardell hayes guilty of manslaughter last night. hayes shot the former saints player during an april road rage
7:17 am
incident and hayes was convicted of manslaughter for wounding smith's wife. david begnaud is outside of the courthouse with reaction to the verdict. >> reporter: the closing arguments were dramatic. you had a prosecutor who is the daughter of the elected d.a. yelling because she said the defense was trying to serve the jury some garbage. the defense went so long in their closing argument, some members of the jury were falling asleep. i'm talking nodding off and out cold. the jury which had been sequestered about a week came back with a verdict in less than seven hours. will smith's former coach sean payton rushed home from the team's game in florida sunday to join smith's family in court and he was there when it was announced that cardell hayes was guilty. john hayes is fuller's attorney. >> continue to pray for all of the families. >> reporter: surveillance video appeared to show smith rear-end hayes' hummer and drive away. hayes then followed smith and bumped into his mercedes. smith's blood alcohol content was nearly three times the legal
7:18 am
limit. hayes shot smith eight times in a deadly confrontation that followed and smith's wife wraqul was shot in the leg but survived. he testified that smith punched him and feared he was going to be shot but those claims were never supported by forensic evidence and although the police recovered a loaded gun from smith's suv but no evidence he ever grabbed that gun. lel legal analyst. you said chip hayes was the best witness for the defense but bad facts. >> he was the best witness for the defense but his facts were so bad he couldn't overcome them. mr. hayes, how did raquel smith get shot? he couldn't answer the statement. >> reporter: a statement said her heart is full of gratitude. several of smith's teammates visited the courthouse during the week-long trial including former saints running back deuce
7:19 am
mcallister. >> no way any party could win. just because there is a guilty or not guilty verdict doesn't mean it starts over now. she will get up in the morning and her husband is not there and the kids get up in the morning and their father is not there. >> reporter: interestingly in louisiana, jury doesn't have to be unanimous in order to achieve a verdict and exactly what happened in this case. ten people were for manslaughter and two for something else. by the way, cardell hayes is facing up to 40 years in prison for that manslaughter conviction. >> it is interesting it does not have to be unanimous, david. thank you. your ride for uber might not be over when you think it is. that story is ahead. first, it's time to check your local weather.

russia worked to influence this year's election in favor of president-elect trump. the trump transition team says in a statement these are the same people who said saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. the election ended a long time ago and it is time to move on. >> the cia briefed congress last week but a bipartisan group of lawmakers is calling for an investigation of russian hacking. two of them are with us. democratic senator chuck schumer of new york is here in the studio. he will become senate minority leader next month and senator john mccain of arizona, the chairman of the senate armed services committee, joins us from phoenix. good morning to you both. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> senator mccain we know that law enforcement agencies are united in the belief that russia tried to influence and meddle in the election but do you believe the cia analysis that it was with a direct intent to try and elect donald trump? >> i don't. i can't reach that conclusion
7:33 am
yet, which is why we need a bipartisan effort to uncover the whole situation and there is no doubt about the hacking. let's establish that. i was hacked into. my campaign in 2008 was hacked in so no doubt about the hacking and then the question about the intention. it's part of the larger issue of the cyber threat we face from russia, china, and other countries. it's another form of war fare and the entire issue is going to be examined by the armed services committee because it's a threat to our national security. >> senator, you made clear that you want the armed services committee to look into hacking and certainly cyberespionage. how will that be different from the presidential investigation, except that will be bipartisan? >> well, i don't think it's going to be done in a month and that is what this administration has left, to tell you the truth. but it's got to be bipartisan
7:34 am
and i'm, frankly, very appreciative that chuck schumer and jack reed, the senior democrat on the committee, are all involved in this. we have a very bipartisan committee, believe it or not, in the armed services committee. >> it's a very good committee and works in a bipartisan way. look. we don't want to point a finger and i don't want this to turn into a benghazi investigation, which seemed, at least to many people, highly political. this is serious stuff. when a foreign power tries to influence our election or damage our economy, for that matter, this is serious. it's gotten worse. and a better bipartisan investigation is needed. the cia saying one thing and i haven't gotten the briefings and the fbi, something else. we had need to get to the bottom of this in a fair, nonpartisan, nonfinger-pointing way. >> how did it -- >> the president is not willing to accept the fact there was
7:35 am
hacking by the russians when the congressional -- when all of the intelligence agencies say there was hacking by russians? >> i can't speculate about the president. i was very glad and i spoke to john about this, that reince priebus on tv yesterday morning said that the president and he supported a bipartisan congressional investigation. that's good news. no one should try to sweep any facts under the rug. we will see where the facts lead. we don't know yet. once we get the facts, we will make our conclusions, but to jump to conclusions or to say we don't need an investigation is so wrong because the vital interests of our country are at stake and this is something that should concern democrats and republicans and liberals and people who care about this country. >> how did it come that twou o you leading this effort and the republicans saying the democrats are looking for somebody to blame. >> that is why it should be bipartisan and john mccain leading it. i have a lot of faith in him.
7:36 am
he is a man -- >> he called you, you called him? >> i called him yesterday morning saying, look. we should not have this degenerate into political finger pointing. it's too serious. he agreed. we put out our statement and we called jack reed, a good democrat, lindsey graham, a republican. the idea this should be bipartisan and fair and just interested in, like, dragnet said, what was his name? webb. >> jack webb. >> july the facts, man. >> but senator mccain, you're asking for the armed services committee, which you will head, to do the investigation, correct? >> no. we also will be working with foreign relations and intelligence committee. we will all be working together. but it is a national security issue. >> what is the risk here? >> there is no doubt -- there is no doubt that russians and others have hacked. i mean, there is no doubt about that. now the question is the intention. but what the larger issue that the armed services committee and others are looking into is the whole issue of cyber, because it
7:37 am
is an area where the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff said we do not have an advantage over our potential adversaries. that is the only form of possible conflict where our adversaries have an advantage over us. the whole -- this issue has brought cyber, i think, to the position and -- >> if i could say one thing. >> go ahead. >> a few years ago, there was hacking and people thought this is some random individual, american or overseas. now we are finding, we are pretty clear, it's governments behind it and it's not just the russian government. >> they are worried about future -- >> correct. this is serious, serious stuff. the fact there is an allegation, serious, that an election tried to be influence, we have to find out the answers. >> based on the briefings that both of you have seen, is there evidence that the russians also hacked the republican national committee? >> i haven't gotten briefings yet because i'm not -- >> john mccain? >> i have not gotten that information. i don't have that information.
7:38 am
>> the question is -- >> the investigation -- >> the question i'm asking why would they hack just into the democratic national committee? what would be the goal of doing that? >> we do not know what they have done. there is good evidence they hacked into the dnc and i've heard it second -- >> senator. >> the people briefed told me this is serious and wide ranging. let's find out. >> one quick question. if rex tillerson is the nominee for the secretary of state will he have a problem being confirmed in the united states senate? >> well, look. the bottom line is every one of these nominees, and particularly a guy like tillerson, needs a thorough, thorough hearing. the wung thing we will insist on, democrats, not quick like this. five minutes to each person in one day. we will want thorough questions and he will be questioned thoroughly should he be the nominee and thiel allegations and talks about his closeness to putin will come forward. can say as a future minority leader, god willing, that this
7:39 am
has to be a thorough -- we will not stand for a quick you just ask your question and say hello and he leaves. >> yes. there will be some follow-ups. >> lots. >> thank you, senator schumer and mccain. good to see you. he is joining us from arizona today. a change in uber's privacy policy has some app users questioning which companies have access to their locations. ahead, why uber and other apps might be tracking you longer you you think they are. that is scary. we invite you to subscribe to our "cbs this morning" podcast and proud of this. you get the news of the day and extended interviews and podcast originals. find them all the on itunes and apple's podcast app.

improve pickups and drop-offs and customer service, and enhances safety. the company explained to us it was facing challenges, including connecting drivers and riders. but some consumers and privacy experts argue that goes beyond the scope of what is needed. >> this location tracking, in terms of not just during the ride but also afterwards, is totally unnecessary to the service. >> reporter: claire gartland is with the electronic privacy information center. the group filed a complaint in 2015 with the federal trade commission charging uber with unfair and detceptive trade practice. >> it represents an erosion of the privacy that users have and they continue to take baby steps and reach further into our personal lives. i think it's a basic practice and users are upset. >> reporter: she says uber would
7:46 am
allow them to share location data. the car services new policy has renewed the debate over how much access digital services, including companies like google and amazon, should have and who should regulate them. the federal communications commission limits how cell phone carriers can share consumer's personal information but gartland says digital platform like smartphone appears don't face the same scrutiny. >> in many ways it saints going but what we already give to other companies. >> reporter: nyu professor here says the united states privacy laws are weak but there might be another deterrent to bad behavior on the part of companies like uber, consumer backlash. how do we know that they stop after five minutes? >> well, we trust that they will do what they promise to do. i don't trust that uber is telling the truth because i believe in uber's good intentions. i trust that uber is telling the truth because it would be really damaging to their long-run
7:47 am
profits if they were caught in a lie on something like this. >> reporter: so uber told us there is a way to stop the company from tracking you this way. you can disable the location tracking in the permissions for your app but that means you have to type in each address manually. if you allow tracking during your ride, there is no way to stop the company from tracking you for five minutes after you get out of the car, unless you close the app completely, not running in the background, but close it completely after you get out of the car immediately every time. >> smart thing to do, isn't it? >> so if you have your hands full? >> just got to remember. >> and if you have nothing to hide, maybe don't worry about it? >> depend on whether you want them to track you or not. >> up to you. it's big trouble when a moose wanders. firefighters respond to a big and rather awkward emergency. first, it's time to check your local weather.

♪ it is monday, december 12th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including president-elect trump questioning the cia for saying russia helped him in the election. his senior adviser kellyanne conway is with us today in studio 57. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. president obama has ordered a full review of russian interference in the election by the day trump takes office. >> the cia believes a high confidence judgment and the cia doesn't come to a high-confidence judge based on circumstantial evidence so i think they have got more here. i think they have got sources who are actually telling them what the intent was. big stretches of upstate new york are under more than two feet of snow.
8:01 am

8:02 am
making travel dangerous this morning for millions of americans. the weather system is battering the northern tier of the country with snow and freezing rain. >> whiteout conditions and ice contributed to a weekend pileup in michigan. airlines cancelled more than 1,200 flights from chicago's o'hare and midway airports. a blast of arctic air will sweep troo across the northeast to the east later this week. china is concerned about president-elect trump's policy on the one china policy and trump said it could be used as a bargaining chip. since 1979 the u.s. has dealt with taiwan through checks and informal contacts but not as a separate government. the president-elect took a call from the taiwanese president ten days ago. >> i don't think we have to be a one china policy until we deal with trading with china,
8:03 am
including trade. >> a chinese foreign ministry spokesman said, quote. >> president-elect trump is due a cia report that claims hacking in the campaign was part of an effort by russia to defeat hillary clinton. president-elect calls it ridiculous. mr. trump's pick for secretary of state rex tillerson is drawing criticism for his relationship with russia. he is ceo of exxonmobil. the company made big deals with russia dealing for oil. i asked tillerson about the description of exxonmobil as a unique company because of its power in 2013. >> it's about the power of exxon? . it's like a state into itself? >> i've heard others make the
8:04 am
comment to me that there is an illusion to more a reference to exxonmobil having its own state department. >> yes, that's right. >> i would -- i would tell you it's not quite that organized. but -- >> do you wish it were? >> no, because i think it's -- i think we are very efficient how we go about it. >> republican senators like john mccain and marco rubio raising questions about tillerson and his ties to the russian president. kellyanne conway is senior adviser to president-elect trump. she joins us at the table once again. good to see you. much to discuss this morning and start with this. when is president-elect going to tell us that mitt romney is out and rex tillerson is in? >> the president-elect will make his final announcement mid week and taking this process very seriously. he has had a very wide selection, wide birth of qualified men and women and it looks like rex tillerson is a leading candidate until the president-elect makes that announcement. >> other people are still in the running? >> they are, but, obviously,
8:05 am
there has been a lot of buzz about rex tillerson of late. a very unique trumpian kind of pick. >> both sides have a lot of concerns about his pick. >> it's an asset not a liability. in that not he is hanging around with vladimir putin on the weekend at dinner parties but he understands russia and doing business there and has had to deal with china, russia, yemen, the developing world and the middle east which needs stabilization. exxonmobil is a 320 billion dollar company and rex tillerson is in charge of 70,000 employees and secretary of state has 66 or 70 billion dollar budget and this is somebody who knows negotiation, he knows about national security. he knows how to -- he is a job creator on certainly. this is the fourth highest ranking official in the united states government and very important selection. >> how about john bolton? is he under consideration for the state department? >> i certainly interviewed for this position and may end up with a position in the state department, charlie. again, that will be announced by the president-elect. but really greatly qualified and
8:06 am
very diverse backgrounds of all the individuals who have come in. >> can i raise one question warpt with respect to the president-elect's mind in what he has said not whether there was influence in hacking to defeat hillary clinton. >> right. >> and elect donald trump. but just the idea of russia hacking. all american intelligence agencies believe the russians did it. why doesn't the president-elect? >> well, he is basically talking about the election result, though. >> but let's take that apart from it, though. does he believe, regardless of what the purpose was, that the russians hacked? >> what he believes we should have evidence. not these off-the-record unsourced quotes and leaks from a house intelligence committee. now the fbi is arguing with the cia over it. there is no clarity between them. we don't have a single source -- >> -- the russians hacked. >> what people are trying to do -- >> the question about motive. >> but in fairness to the president-elect, people are trying to conflate that now to revisit the election results. we are surrounded by election deniers.
8:07 am
first jim comey's fault and a punch bunch of people and we do not associate with and denounced time and time again and russian inference bernie sanders how dare you he run into the primary and won 13 states and 200 million votes. we are not going to allow people to insinuate or insult the president-elect and the tremendous victory that he had. >> doesn't he trust the cia? >> he does. he said that. >> absolutely. >> they say -- >> he trusts -- he trusts the intelligence communities. here is the very bottom -- look, bottom line for the president-elect. and you can trust this going forward in his administration, charlie. we don't want intelligence -- we don't want foreign inferenterfe in our intelligence and politics. >> by anyone? >> by any government or anyone. we don't want politics interfering with our intelligence. it is. i saw a "newsweek" article posted last night everybody should read. it talks about how the cia officials say you can't rush to judgment. it's, quote, fuzzy and
8:08 am
ambiguous. >> it also could be true that the russians are responsible for the hacking and that the russians tried to influence the election but that donald trump won by other means. both can be true. >> that's right. it could be but we don't know that and that is the entire point. if people want to have congressional investigations, they should do that. but we can't get ahead of ourselves about the -- >> the claim about the russian government they are trying to sew kay chaos and confusion and lead to the pillars of american democracy in our government and one of those is the cia. do you believe that president-elect trump, though, is helping to undermine the reputation of the cia by the comments he is making by dismissing their report as ridiculous? >> not at all. >> and suggesting their confidence is in question because at the beginning of the iraq war they got it wrong and therefore they got it wrong? >> he has tremendous respect and asked that this weekend do you respect the intelligence and he
8:09 am
said he does. this conclusion is being -- it's a political conclusion that fits the narrative of people who can't realize. vladimir putin didn't tell hillary clinton to ignore wisconsin and michigan. >> but is this what he is saying with effect to the one china policy? look. we will negotiate that. there are some things i want china to do and i'll consider respecting one china if you do these things that you want you to do? is this a bargaining about one china? >> not at the moment. he is not the president yet and not the commander in chief yet. >> he said yesterday in an interview. >> he received a congratulations call from taiwan and playing it forward a little bit, charlie, he has shown an openness to affecting different policies. but nothing has been announced and nothing has been finalized. we are respectful of the fact the next five week, we have another commander in chief and chief in the oval and that is incredibly important to this. this is somebody who is a guy inherited to do great things and this country voted for change. nobody can argue that we don't have the best relations around

are 100 days old today. >> i'm going to see them tomorrow. >> to atlanta? >> to atlanta. >> oh? i didn't know you were going to atlanta. chinese tradition is the day they get their names. what am i missing is in the public voted on a choice of seven sets of names. more than 23,000 votes were recorded. the pandas could make their public debut as early as this month. so go on to atlanta and see them in person. very cute. >> i'm going there for an interview with al pacino. >> you didn't clear that with me so i'm just curious. >> check your answering machine. john goodman's remarkable career has run more than 30 years. tv watchers remember him for his golden globe winning man as don connor in "roseanne." he has leapt his voice to several animated films. >> he stars as boston police commissioner ed davis in the new movie "patriots day." the drama is based on the 2013 boston marathon bombings and the
8:33 am
manhunt for the attackers. >> you guys identify the two we looking for. we need to release those pictures! >> we overplay our head we may force these guys to react. >> gentlemen, if i may. right now boston is working against us. normally you got a murder. rats. we don't got that problem. when it comes to terrorism everybody wants to talk about this city. they are talking about the wrong people. release the photos of our guys sitting back. listen. trust me. let boston work force, i'm telling you. >> "patriots day "on "is distributed by cbs films, a division of kcbs. john goodman is with us along with ed davis. this is what the director peter berg said. no actor who looks more like ed davis. they are both tall and larger than life. you both agree with that? >> i think ed is larger than
8:34 am
life than i am. >> that's true. it's is not -- >> i need to define larger than life. >> he's got a personality. i don't. >> that's not true. >> just the way -- he knows everybody. he is just mr. boss. >> a legend in his own time? >> yes. >> did you feel pressure, though, playing him? i'm curious about the first time you two met. >> i put so much pressure on myself and we had such a big job to do that i just had to forgot about it and focus on what we were doing. and i'll get killed later for it. it was that kind of a feeling. i had too many good people to work with. >> when you met him, what did you think, ed? >> when with i first met him, i walked in the room and he was practicing with peter and mark and trying to practice my accent. i tapped him on the back and he said, i can't do this with you here! i just can't do this with you here!
8:35 am
>> ed, you were commissioner of the boston police department for seven years. >> right. >> and during boston marathon bombing and you did such an amazing job. >> i had a great team. >> take us back to that day and what happened that day. some of the challenges you encountered. >> well, the tragedy sort of laid out before us. people were killed and 42 seriously wounded. in danger of dying. and 280 injured. the scene was horrible. it looked like a war zone there. and so it was important for us to take care of the wounded and save as many lives as we could, but then to pursue the suspects. it was a case, a sense of urgency and anger among the offices that had been attacked and showed their bravery the next four days to run these guys down. >> what was some of the friction with the fbi? >> this is a complex undertaking and a lot of agencies involved in it. and there was a disagreement
8:36 am
about when to put the photos out. i've always been focused on the community so i wanted to get them out quickly. the truth is rick delorean and i are good friends. we could not have done it would you the bureau. there was stress but it worked itself out. >> what are the lessons to learn from the responses? >> two. i think one is the police officers who were out there are compassionate and really focused on putting things right, getting the community back together. but the other one, charlie, is the community response. the boston strong response. the terrorists have to understand that they are trying to tear us apart but they are making us stronger by doing this. it's a failed strategy. >> john, what did you think you had to get to get ed davis? >> it was -- i actually just kind of reacted to the way people treated me. there's a respect. there is a command there. naturally. but he also shows up at a scene
8:37 am
and he knows all of the officers' names and how their families are doing. just a tremendous undertaking to do this job. and i'm talking like i'm -- >> you can't help it! >> aw! such a responsibilities, they are enormous. >> you said you gave him your phone number. what did you seek from him? >> we did. if we needed little hints on scenes that were ongoing. i would call commissioner davis and he was more than willing to help. >> give me an example. what would you say, john? i'm calling you about what? >> there was a scene that we caught but a phone call with vice president biden that everybody was on. we wanted to know what the call was about. and what they discussed. so i started improvising, which i'm not the best at, which maybe why the scene isn't in the film. >> talk about mark wahlberg. a boston native who was a
8:38 am
driving force behind this and he was here and we talked about it. he was worried it was too soon. what was it like working with mark? >> it was tremendous. mark has an incredibly commitment to the community, to the city. when you combined him with peter burg's side of the story and hard hitting journalist that combination is incredible. they got real facts i didn't understand the scene stuff. >> mark wahlberg told us he thinks you guys got it right so congrats. good to see you both. >> good to see you. >> john goodman and ed davis.
