let's go places! ♪ welcome to "cbs this morning." american intelligence officials say they are convinced that russian hacking of our presidential election was approved by president vladimir putin. sources close confirm to cbs news they believe putin was aware of attacks that began in july of last year. >> now an official investigation is still going on, but this is the first time that the hacking that played the democratic national committee until election day is linked to putin. jeff pegues has more. >> reporter: the hacks were so widespread and sustained over such a long period of time that u.s. intelligence sources say it could not have been carried out without knowledge of senior levels of the kremlin. cbs news has learned that investigators believe the initial cyber attack that initially crippled the democratic national committee
involved thousands of militia e-mails aimed at u.s. military, government, and political organization. first an attempt to disrupt the election came in the form of malware and phishing e-mails which investigators say allowed russian-backed hacking groups to burrow into the democratic national committee. cbs news has been told this type of cyberhacking could not have happened without vladimir putin's blessing saying, quote, the order to do it would have have hto come from the highest level. after the breach it took months for federal investigators and dnc official to take action. >> the fbi called the dnc help desk. >> reporter: adam hodge is with the dnc. it took several months before the dnc realized it had been contacted by the fbi? >> to verify the authenticity of the fbi agent who said who he said it was. it's hard to beli the reality.
>> reporter: devin nunez argued lawmakers are being denied a briefing on the hacks. we want to clarify press reports that the cia has a new assessment it has not shared with us. but director of national intelligence james clapper released an intelligence community statement, which said, we will not offer any comment until the review, requested by president obama s complete. republican senator lindsey graham said wednesday the feds knew who cracked his e-mails over the summer. >> we were told by the fbi in august that we were hacked in june so they pointed us to the fact that the russians did. it. yes, the russians did it. >> reporter: plu president-elect donald trump has brushed off intelligence assessment blaming the russians. >> they have no idea if it's russia or china or somebody. >> reporter: mr. trump's doubts about russian involvement are also add odds with the obama administration. >> their involvement was having a negative impact on his opponent's campaign and why he was encouraging them to keep
doing it. >> reporter: in addition to damaging the prospects of the democratic national committee in the 2016 election cycle some u.s. officials are confirmed about the hacking attempts yet to come to light. the thousands of malicious e-mails yet to be launched may be probing for u.s. cyber strikes. the response to putin and russian hacking will be a key question during rex tillerson's confirmation hearings for secretary of state. this week former defense secretary robert gates endorsed tillerson's nomination. he called him a person of great integrity. last night on asked gates about tillerson's relationship with vladimir putin gates say he looked into putin's eyes and saw a, quote, a stone cold killer. . when rex tillerson looks into vladimir putin's eyes, what does he see?
>> i haven't asked rex that question. i would make the case being friendly is different than being friend. i think rex had an understanding of what his interests were. i think he dealt in a business-like fashion with putin. i think one of the challenges facing the next president is how do you thread the needle of stopping the downward spiral in u.s./russian relations that is potentially quite dangerous, and, at the same time, push back against putin's aggressiveness, bullying, and general thuggery. and having somebody who understands where putin is coming from, who knows him and knows how he negotiates, i think is a big asset. i think it's a mistake to think that because rex tillerson successfully did business in russia that he is best friends with vladimir putin. i think that is a completely false narrative. >> what is is not false this is a very serious business now. >> yes. >> because of the revelations about putin.
michael morrell was on with me last night and said the united states and president obama has to respond and has to respond in a very public way, including sanctions and other means. >> sooner, rather than later. >> as we learned that president obama delayed blaming the russians publicly during the campaign. he was afraid about politicizing intelligence even though this has been known within the administration. but the repercussions that a foreign government tried to influence our election is serious one and has to be a serious response. >> michael morrell equals it an equivalent to a political 9/11 e. >> it should be chilling whether you're democrat or republican. this is not a partisan issue. >> it has to happen by president obama. it's not something that can wait because it happened on his watch. >> to be continued for sure. a cbs news poll out this morning americans adeeply dividd over the president-elect. 36% he will do a poor job and 34
think he will be good or very good. he met with tech leaders yesterday including the leaders of apple and amazon and google but not twitter. mr. trump calls it a great form of communication. our poll shows that 60% of americans believe he tweets too much. nancy cordes has the highlights of the tech meeting at trump tower yesterday. >> reporter: they did not get a dressing down by mr. trump the way media executives did a few weeks ago. even though silicon valley leaders were largely critical of the president-elect when he was running. instead, he and they declared the meeting very productive. and he told them his door would always be open to them. >> we are going to be there for you and you'll call my people or call me opinion doesn't make any difference. we have no formal chain of command around here. >> reporter: mr. trump's meeting with sheryl sandberg and tim cook and others lasted more than 90 minutes. the group discussed jobs, taxes and, quote, specific innovative
solutions blocked by narrow thinking in washington. >> i won't tell you the hundreds of calls that we have had asking to come to this meeting. >> reporter: it's a shift from the campaign when some of these industry leaders kept their distance from mr. trump. wikileaks revealed google's eric schmidt had been working with hillary clinton's campaign since 2014. tesla's elon musk said mr. trump is not the right guy for america. and amazon's jeff bezos publicly duelled with the president-elect. >> that is not an appropriate way for a presidential candidate to behave. >> you know it's amazon. he wants political influence so that amazon will benefit from it. that is not right. >> reporter: twitter ceo jack dorsey was not invited to the round table, even though mr. trump is a famously a vicious id tweeter and led some to assume the trump team has a grudge
after special emoji to go with the #crooked hillary. >> the conference table was only so big. >> reporter: rnc communications director shawn spicer insisted no attempt to shut twitter out. >> if you did down the list of the top tech companies, i guarantee you you'll find additional ones that weren't there. >> reporter: and twitter is smaller than the other companies that were represented in the room. also in the room were mr. trump's two sons, eric and don, jr., despite his vow to turn his business over to them and create a wall, charlie, between the business and the white house. >> thanks, nancy. john heilemann is the managing editor of bloomberg politics. welcome. >> hello. >> hello. >> happy almost holidays, guys. >> good morning. >> i see you all have magnificent plans coming up soon. >> let's talk about vladimir putin and these reports. >> yes. >> is there going to be increasing pressure, political pressure on president obama to respond and respond in a strong
way? >> well, in terms of -- i think there are two different kinds of pressure. the first question is how to investigate there and you can see the way in which this debate is lining up with the question of whether there should be a congressional inquiry on a bipartisan basis or whether go to more of a 9/11 commission kind of model. a lot of democrats want to do that and a lot of republicans in control of the congress want to do the investigation in congress. a risk that -- >> but the white house investigation is under way right now and come out before the president leaves office. >> there will and whether or not there is a question there will ab response. remember joe biden when the first reports of this came out in october joe biden threatened the notion there would be a response whether a cyber response or other kind of response. i think beyond news reports, if there become more credible reports from this investigation, that putin may further, for example, was directly involved in this i think a strong national security case being made by many people that something needs to be done about this, as opposed to just looking
for the truth of the story which is important on its own. >> what can be done? supposed everything is true that he was involved and knew about it. what can be done? what does it change? >> well, there is a -- the united states engages in cyber war fare also and against a variety of states in the past. one of the pieces of thinking that has always been the case in this area you could strike back against russia, against putin personally, against his assets, exposing information about putin's his holding much which is a shrouded mystery as donald trump's financial assets. you could do that if you were -- i don't think the right thing to do but certainly an option on the table is considered and considered in the future i think. >> i guess the more interesting question to me is the most interesting is why would putin want trump as president? and what are the implications of that? and how does that affect who his secretary of state is? does it make it more or less likely that rex tillerson -- >> those are large questions and
they are saying quickly in my ear! vladimir putin has always had bad feelings about hillary clinton because of the fact that she was one of the leaders of sanctions against russia after the crimea invasion and donald trump has made more conciliatory toward ruscsia. how that plays into the tillerson nomination is a huge question. the tillerson confirmation hearings i think will be exclusively about this issue. >> good debate to have. >> and norah's question is going to be, i think, the central question of that confirmation hearing. >> john, you did it very quickly and very nicely. >> what did donald know and when did he know? >> and what did vladimir know and when did he know it. >> and what is going on with donald trump and kanye west? >> that is another question and more complicated than anything else we have talked about, gayle. >> millions of americans are waking up to the coldest temperatures of the season. windchills right now below zero from the northern plains to the
great lakes. some places 20 or 30 below. now that cold air is fueling lake-effect snow and making driving conditions dangerous in the northeast and part of uld g feet by tonight. demarco morgan is in adams, new york, which is under a snow warning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. about 10 inches of snow have accumulated so far and it's almost knee-deep in this sitting area in the strf town. the holiday lights are still on so that is always a good sign that things are okay. but officials are telling people, if you just have to get out on the roads, you want to play it safe. a camera captured the moments the lake-effect snow barreled into buffalo, new york. the storm brought along some rare thundersnow. strong winds reduced visibility to zero making driving even more dangerous. a few good samaritans helped this driver whose car struggled with the heavy buildup. >> we need to be on our game at all times. >> bruce reom has been operating
a snowplow in jefferson county about five years. he says dealing with lake-effect snow can be like playing a never ending game of catch-up. >> you get your roads cleared up and removed from snow and ice, and then another band comes through, and you're right back to square one starting all over again. >> reporter: another major challenge, impatient drivers. >> people will try to pass a plow vehicle and be -- we will find them in the ditch after they have passed us. >> reporter: lake-effect snow, very unpredictable? >> it is. >> reporter: jefferson county sheriff says the nature of these storms make them especially dangerous to drivers. >> it's a clear sunny day out. you hit the lake effect band and the visibility is zero and change just like that. >> reporter: lake-effect snow warning will be in effect until friday morning and windchill advisory, i should say, will be in place this evening. you have cold temperature and the snow, a tough combination for a lot of people, but you're
always welcome to join me on this little bench here, gayle, for a nice warm cup of coffee and you have to keep your heels on. >> demarco, please don't hold your breath! >> she won't get here. >> i'll give you a hug. thank you, demarco, very much. chief weather caster lonnie quinn of wcbs is tracking the cold. looks bad out there, lonnie p.m. >> it's a rough situation where demarco is. i want to talk, first, about the cold air. this is our third arctic blast of the season. international falls is 12 below zero what it feels like when you factor in the wind. the warmest point of the day, guys! point of snow to go along with the cold air which will stretch into the northeast. today, we focus on, you got it. the great lakes. that lake-effect snow putting bands of snow. tough to pinpoint exactly where it's going to be but i bet you watertown, new york, where demarco is a hot spot and two feet of snow out of it.
the big story is what is brewing out west. the storm pushes onshore and drop snow anywhere from portland, oregon, to boston, massachusetts, and by the time you get to saturday, an interesting setup. a him warm front pushes in and all of that snow is going to turn to rain, except for maybe northern new england. charlie? >> lonnie, thank you very much. a desperate evacuation is under way right now? the syrian city of aleppo. video appears to show a convoy of ambulances bringing injured people from the tiny area still held by rebels. syrian government buses are ready to remove thousands of trapped civilians. holly williams is following the story from istanbul. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we have obtained a video that appears to show an attack on a convoy of civilians and injured people by pro syrian regime forces. reportedly wounding at least three. the ambulances and cars were trying to ferry people out of aleppo and to safety.
instead, they came under fire. this man was apparently shot while traveling in an ambulance. this comes a day after yet another cease-fire fell apart and an evacuation of fighters and civilians was cancelled. an offensive by the syrian regime backed by russia and iran has left the rebels with only a tiny pocket of territory in aleppo, around two square miles, where several thousand civilians are thought to be trapped. after four years of fighting, the syrian government is in control of the rest of the city. it's a victory for the regime and its allies, russia and iran, but it's come at a horrendous human cost. regime forces hav indiscriminately bombed civilians. there are also unconfirmed reports of more than 80 civilians being executed in aleppo by pro-regime forces. norah? >> awful situation there.

>> you could strike back against russia, against putin personally. i'm not saying that is the right thing to do but certainly an option on the table. this is really our third arctic blast of the season in terms of snow to go along with all of this cold air which will stretch all the way into the northeast. today, we focus on, you got it, the great lakes. that lake-effect snow. you have a cold temperature and the snow, a tough combination for a lot of people. what is your message to the yahoo! customers today? >> delete your account. >> you have never said that about br. >> i didn't say it in september but i have it hit. >> they did not guess a dressing down by mr. trump a few weeks but silicon valley lireaders we critical of the tech skews. >> they wanted to figure out if they could figure out his itunes log-in. ♪ i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. u.s. intelligence sources say they are convinced russian
president vladimir putin approved hacking attacks that inferred with our presidential election. the hacking began in july of last year. the democratic national committee was the original target. putin denies any knowledge of the attacks. >> but u.s. intelligence sources tell cbs news this type of hacking could not have happened without his blessing. president-elect donald trump disputes intelligence reports that russia was responsible. president obama's press secretary said there is no doubt that russia did it and said it's clear that president-elect benefited from the hacking. josh earnest defended the president's communities to announce the hacking and not to rush the process. >> given that the president had endorsed a candidate in the presidential race, he believes it was important for the intelligence community to make this announcement and that's why you saw a statement from -- a joint statement from the ic and from the department of homeland security department. again, that was an effort to
ensure that this information avoided even the appearance of being politically motivated. >> the obama administration had evidence of russia's connection months before revealing it in october. improving u.s. cyber security was a topic when president-elect met with industry tech leaders. sheryl sandberg and tim cook and elon musk and nine others were there. their companies have a combined market value of 3 trillion dollars. they talked about america's jobs and trade ghak and competitive trade dynamic and market access with china. >> mr. trump's two eldest sons were at the tech summit and so was ivanka trump and her husband jared kushner. he said he will separate himself from the business and let his sons running it.
70% think mr. trump may still have conflicts of interest even with his family in charl. >> frank luntz is a cbs news strategist and cbs news contributor. he is talking with members of congress about their plans for the new year. good to see you, frank. >> thank you. >> did you talk to members on both sides of the aisle? you're called a republican strategist. >> i did. i think the democratic response is more interesting, particularly in the senate. they are the ones who are going to determine whether or not donald trump can get 60 votes which is what he will neat to replace obamacare and what needs for tax reform. something called reconciliation which is a complicated process and which requires a budget to be passed. you can repeal obamacare through reconciliation and a simple majority vote. for almost everything else that donald trump wants, he needs 60 votes and that means 8 democrats have to break party ranks. there are about a dozen who are more independents, who are willing to buck their leadership. the question is how far do they go? will this be like 1980 with
ronald reagan he got a considerable number of democrats in both the house and senate, or closer to what obama had to face when republicans basically presented a wall and did not cooperate. >> the obama administration didn't think they got cooperation. do you think the democrats are indicating to you they are willing to cooperate? >> they are nervous about it and they are nervous because they think there could be retribution. we are approaching christmas but no christmas spirit in politics right now. >> were the republicans upset when obama talked about reconciliation? >> yes. it repeats itself. do you have a bill clinton situation where he and republicans got along. do you have a reagan/tip o'neill situation or a obama/republican situation where it doesn't work. >> let's back up a minute. republicans control the presidency and both houses of congress. >> and the governors and the legislature. >> in 70 years, republicans have only done that six of those 70 years.
they have an enormous opportunity to push their agenda that they want through this. can they get it done? what will they get done? speaker paul ryan, many policy walks who have wanted for years who have been working on tax reform immigration reform. can they get done or will the. party lose that because of infighting? >> they can get it done in the house and you're right. there are differences on immigration policy and budget policy and taxes. the question can it get through the senate? in the end the house will pass
everything in a hundred days. >> looking for a quick answer here. the new president, when will he select a supreme court justice? >> it will be within the first two weeks. i believe within the first two weeks and i think there will be two picks within the next year based on who is hiring clerks and who isn't. >> thank you, frank. >> frank, thank you. long awaited evacuation of parts of the syrian city of aleppo is under way right now. syrian government buses are ready to remove thousands of civilians from the tiny area still held by rebels. we have obtained video that appears to show an attack on a convoy of civilians and the injured by pro regime forces. at least three people were reportedly injured. this is what aleppo looks like before the war's devastation. the ancient city was serious commercial hub and home to more than 2 million people. but after four years of fighting, look at this. this is what aleppo looks like now. the syrian regime won with help from iran and russia and its
victory came with the indiscriminate killing of civilians. both sides have decimated the city. this is the ancient in the old city before the war and this is what is left of the world heritage site now. >> every day you look at the pictures and it gets worse and worse and doesn't seem to be changing. it's heart breaking. >> and you ask yourself why? >> children killed and schools bombed. >> no one has an answer. federal regulators are launching a review of car's safety and response to a cbs news investigation. national highway traffic safety administration says new research program will look at ways to prevent seatback failures like the one in this video. cbs news identified more than 100 cases where collapses resulted in serious injury or on death. most victims are children in the back seat. automakers say the seats meet or exceed federal standards but those standards are almost 50 years old. our reporting prompted three members of congress last month

when emergency treatment begins quickly. that is because almost 2 million brain cells die every minute during a stroke. david begnaud met one neurosurgeon in florida who found a new way to rush to the emergency room to help his patients. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. good to see you. there is just one surgeon who operated on all of the stroke victims at palm meadow general hospital outside of miami. this guys performs about a hundred emergency procedures every year and he needs to be there whenever the call comes. that means if he is with his family on the weekend it doesn't matter. this guy feels an obligation to respond. >> if there is a stroke now? >> yeah. having just announced it. >> reporter: please. >> find out what it is. >> reporter: absolutely. in this case the doctor was already here at palm meadow general hospital but he often has to drive in to treat stroke victims, depending on the time of day, his 15-minute commute can easily stretch into 45 minutes. >> just the amount of damage that can happen and just about half an hour delay would be spectacular.
>> reporter: but now, damage control for his patients. he uses emergency lights on his personal car, speeding his arrival to folks like robert bustlow whose family dial 911 when he suddenly had trouble tying his shoes and sweeping the porch. >> how bad was it? >> it was considered a fatal stroke if it wasn't taken care of. >> reporter: the neurosurgeon did take care of it before bustlow knew what has happening. >> he got this there very quick. the moment i got in there i was in the scanner going from one to the other and he got it out. >> reporter: just as he did for the patient that arrived when we were there. the doctor pulled out a tiny clot like this. >> if i did not have the lights or taken me another half an hour to get to him things would have been very different and he potentially probably paralyzed on the right side and never able to speak. >> the reason i have no ill effects is because, you know, dr. cash o got there very, very quick. >> reporter: no sirens? >> no.
>> reporter: do you honk your horn? >> if i need to. >> reporter: we mounted a camera inside of his car to see how it works. the lights allow him to drive on the shoulder of the highway around traffic backups. the fire department installed this after first checking to make sure it was legal. >> has to abide by all traffic laws. >> reporter: he has to stop at the traffic, go the speed limit. he can sort of move through the backup on the freeway? >> as people see the vehicle coming, they usually yield. >> it does have risks. there are accidents that occur, crashes that occur. >> reporter: dr. douglas cooper of the national association of state ems officials say ems medical directors sometime respond to scenes with lights and sirens on their car but that this is the first time he has heard of a surgeon using emergency lights. >> whenever there is a jam. otherwise, i never use the lights. >> reporter: the doctor worked 350 days last year. and he measures success by the minute. >> what we see is that any of these delays, those brain cells translate to this person being able to walk out of this
hospital on his own or go to a nursing home and be paralyzed for the rest of his life. >> so health officials suggest the best way for stroke victims to watch for signs. watch for a drooping face. arm weakness or speech problems. and to get help as soon as possible. the doctor says he has used the lights about seven times since he installed them in september. here is a lighter moment. he had to take talk to his wife if he can do this. she said, sure, just gets some extra life insurance and he did. >> so crucial and to know you're having a stroke. >> charlie, we watched him while we were there remove a stroke from a man's brain and it was the size of a rice kernel! he walked in and he couldn't move a limb! >> shows you right there. >> it's so nice to have you at the table. >> so good to be here! so good to be here! i tell you what, i'm in a suit and feel like a fish out of water! >> you're usually crawling through the snow or being batted
