that is tremendous. welcome to "cbs this morning." i'm josh elliott alongside reena ninan and vladimir duthiers. >> russia is kicking out american diplomats for new sanctions imposed by president obama to a parting scott at moscow. u.s. intelligence official believe that russia launched cyberattacks to influence the presidential election. in response the state department expelled 35 russian governments and closed two russian compounds and sanctioned two of lurussia' top intelligence agencies. >> it is regrettable that the obama administration which started out by restoring our ties is ending its term in an anti--russia agony. >> some of the russian officials who have been ordered to leave
the country work in the embassy across the street. on thursday, they were given 72 hours to get out of the country after the obama administration retaliated for what it says was a wave of russian cyber attacks. the clock is ticking for 35 government officials, not only from the russian embassy in washington but also the russian conconsulate in san francisco who have been ordered to leave the country. >> it's outside of the norms of international behavior and the president wanted to make sure they he cut it out. >> reporter: president obama announced a list of sanctions as punishment for what u.s. officials say is russia's attempt to influence the u.s. presidential lex with cyber attacks. two are identified and sanctioned for their role in the hacking along with three companies and four individuals who allegedly assisted. and two russian cyber criminals both on the fbi's most wanted list have also been sanctioned. .
the ghist say evgeniy bogachev stole more than 100 million dollars from u.s. intets. russian compounds one in new york and maryland will also be evacuated. they will not be announced because they are highly classified. >> they don't represent the totality of our response. >> they say the russians were engaged in an effort to harm hillary clinton's campaign, it will be helping the campaign of president-elect donald trump. investigators say a hacking unit known as apd-28 targeted democratic party official by sending malicious e-mails in the spring of 2016 that tricked recipients into changing their passwords. u.s. intelligence officials believe this hack likely gave russian operatives access to the information of senior democratic party officials which was then leaked to the press and publicly disclosed. >> russia attempts to undermine
western democracies are going to be a problem for us for a long time. >> long time russian expert clifford kupchan has met putin personally on many occasions and believes these sanctions won't prove effective in stopping russian cyber attacks. >> he has found this war fare it involves false information and hacking and he is very involved in it and he is winning and i don't think it's going to stop. >> reporter: us investigators believe that russian intelligence services have been conducting espionage from think tanks to universities to corporations for about a decade. vlad? >> jeff, thanks. president-elect donald trump moved quickly to put out a statement on the russia sanctions. the statement said it's time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. nevertheless in the interest of our country and its great people, i will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of the situation. mr. trump has the option of
lifting the new sanctions when he becomes president three weeks from today. jan crawford has details of the trump team's reaction. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. so in the past, mr. trump has questioned allegations accusing russia of hacking to influence the election. while his latest statement doesn't say that, members of the incoming trump administration are raising concerns about the hacking issue. and president obama's response in his last days in office. >> foreign government shouldn't be hacking american institutions, period. >> reporter: incoming white house chief of staff reince priebus condemned any cyberattack against the u.s. but said the trump administration would like to see evidence of the russian hack that prompted the new sanctions against moscow. >> it would be nice if we could get to a place where the intelligence community, in unison, can tell us what it is has that has been going on so we can respond and we are going to get to that. >> reporter: the counselor to the president-elect kellyanne conway expressed concern over
reports that the sanction may be more of a political power play by the obama administration. >> even "the new york times" characterized is as such to box him in to see what he will do at president and not the was he peaceful transitions of administrations work in our democracy. >> reporter: white house officials insist the measures is to protect core national security interests. >> the next president wants to lift sanctions against senior russian intlelgs unielligence u make it easier to interfere with our lexs and he can do that but we don't think it makes sense. >> mr. trump should be glad he isn't the one to do it himself. >> reporter: michael o'hanlon said it could be beneficiary for the u.s. going forward. >> i'm hopeful that trump, in a wise way, can turn over a new leaf and not be naive about putin doing us any favors, but still try to take some of the venom out of the relationship. >> reporter: now, president-elect trump does choose to overturn the latest sanctions against russia.
he could face oppositions from both sides of the aisle as a number of democrat and republican lawmakers have voiced concerns over russia's alleged actions. josh? >> jan crawford in washington, thank you. john heilemann is the managing editor of bloomberg politics and good enough to join us on this friday. >> happy new year-ish. by the time we see each other again, it will be next year. >> donald trump the last two days has tweeted for people to get on with their lives to move on to bigger and better things, but did yesterday again promise to meet with members of the intelligence community with whom he has been at odd here in recent weeks. what do you make of it at all? >> well, look. this is a rare, one of a couple of rare situations in which trump sees himself, his political interests are not in alignment with the republican party so places on the question of russia and his business conflicts these are places he is starting to get pushed back from republican members of the senate. the democrats are not donald trump's problem in the short run. the problem he has is with
traditional institutional republicans and a place how far he goes, we don't know. but where he is at least coming to grips with the reality that he at least has to move a little bit towards the more traditional stance as president and say, okay, i have to take this seriously there is bipartisan agreement and this is a big problem and i at least make perfunctory effort to appear i'm taking this seriously as president of the incoming president of the united states. >> the administration's response is being described as the strongest american response ever taken to state sponsored cyber attack. do you think that president obama didn't do enough on this issue and face criticism? >> he is already facing criticism for not acting sooner and always be now, forever, people look back at the election of 2016 and ask the question what would have happened if the united states government did name russia as the perpetrators of cyber war fare in the middle of an election that did it at the time back in october but we didn't take action at that time. the president didn't weigh in in a strong way, in a vocal way at
the time even though the intelligence community did. the question of what would have played out in october into the election had the administration gone fully there, done something like this at the time, will always be an open question. and for a lot of democrats, particularly royal democrats who think in some way that hillary clinton should be president of the united states, they will always wonder whether barack obama was too restrained in october, trying to stay out of the plxs it bolitics of it whet was a mistake. >> kellyanne conway referenced "the new york times" article saying the president is trying to box in the president-elect. what does that mean for our viewers and do you thatink thats the case? >> we have seen on a bunch of fronts policy in trying to say in other areas we are going to try to lock in the things that president obama achieved the last eight years. this is an area i think there will be -- there is no doubt that the president is doing what he thinks is right and this was
an unprecedented thing that happened, the attempt of russia to intervene in american election. i think that the sanctions can be overturned. donald trump could walk away from them. but there is no doubt that there is a marker being laid down here that sort of saying, look, if you're going to do this, if you're going to roll these sanctions back, there is going to be a lot of questions and there is going to be potential political costs. in that sense the obama administration is trying to say this is not a partisan issue. this is an issue of national security and mr. trump, if you're going to deviate from these sanctions, you're going to be doing it in a way that is going to look political to people and that is going to have some costs to you as the president. >> quickly, john. we have seen donald trump invoke president obama in glowing tones. >> right. >> but this transition seems to be less smooth and perhaps less peaceful by the day. >> yes. although it is funny to see trump on twitter sort of doing his wayne's world thing yesterday! i thought things were going
well. not! then coming out in front of reporters and saying we had a great conversation and everything is still going great. there is a little bit of a bipolar trump right now which is the trump on twitter still speaking in kind of loud technical tones to his base and slightly more presidential trump who appears when he does occasionally come out and take some questions from reporters. but there is no question that the rosy glow of that transition from the first few days has gotten a little bit less rosy as with we get closer and closer to the inauguration. >> heilemann's world. party on! thank you, john. >> schwing! >> new york is digging out from a strong storm. the nor'easter dumped many snow on roads leading to dozens of accidents around the region. one traffic death is blamed on the storm. demarco morgan is in henniker,
new hampshire. >> reporter: a beautiful shot behind me at pat's peak. a lot of beg for snow like this because it's a boom for business. in this area, we have gotten about 8 inches of snow so that is enough to work with here. but to the north of us on the east coast highest peak, mt. washington, officials say there is considerable danger of an avalanche. heavy, fast falling snow blanketed the northeast overnight. at times, dropping 6 inches per hour in the new hampshire border. the slick, slippery roads left drivers stranded, sent cars careening off of highways. >> unless you have four-wheel drive, i suggest not even getting on the roads. it's that bad. >> reporter: emergency crews worked through the night after more than 80 wrecks were reported. >> right wheel got off the edge of the tire and pulled it back on and front came on all right but the back end caught on it, and just brought it right around sideways. >> reporter: through bitter
winds and piling snow, plow after plow worked to clear roads across new england, as some areas were pummeled with nearly two feet of snow and more than 40,000 people were without power in maine. in new york and vermont, people shoveled sidewalks and store fronts. for others, the work was all downhill! john mcglone took the snowfall in stride. >> we are all dealing with it and kind of enjoying it while we are shoveling. it's been a lot of fun so far. >> reporter: they got to take a chance to enjoy it. already one ski resort in new england says they have gotten more snow this time than they did compared to last season, all last season. the snow is expected to taper off sometime later today, so, vlad, you still got a chance to get out here if you can hop on a plane or get over here for the weekend. >> all right. keep it warm for me. i'll be there. demarco morgan, thank you. danielle niles of wbz is
tracking the snowfall totals and hat forecast for new year's eve. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. so the snow is not done yet as the storm pulls into new brunswick and areas of snow batter northern maine and back side lake-effect snow bands 6 to 12 inches dumping lake erie and ontario by the end of the day. totals over two feet in parts of west central maine. sabago two feet and over a foot in wakefield, new hampshire and what about new year's eve? another storm out of the great lakes with snow showers. they should be generally light. we will be milder down to the south and much colder air into the northern plains and rain will be an issue down across the southeast. gulf coast states heavy downpours and thunderstorms oan 2 to 4 inches of flooding rains across south central mississippi and louisiana and southwest alabama. >> danielle, thank you. the cease-fire agreement in syria appears to be mostly holding after it went into effect last night. the deal was brokered by russia
and turkey. two countries on opposite sides of the civil war. if the cease-fire lasts, peace talks are scheduled for january. holly williams is tracking all of the latest developments from istanbul. holly, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. we have unconfirmed reports of a rocket attack, air strikes, artillery fire and other violent clashes in syria today. but for the most part, this cease-fire does appear to be holding. russia and turkey say it is a nation-wide cease-fire but it does not include isis or a powerful kurdish group that operates in northern syria. some rebel groups have also told us they did not agree to the deal and there is confusion about which rebel groups have or have not signed up. so while this could be a turning point in syria, it certainly is not an end to the country's five-year long civil war. a bloody conflict which is thought to have claimed hundreds of thousands of lives.
we have seen russia reassert itself as a global player in syria in a way we haven't witnessed since the end of the cold war. moscow's lethal campaign of air strikes has managed to prop up its ally, the syrian regime. and helped it to retake the city of aleppo this month. if this cease-fire holds, it will effectively sideline the u.s. in syria. two previous cease-fires brokered by washington and moscow collapsed. this time around, russia, instead, negotiated with turkey, an american nato ally that is growing ever closer to moscow. vlad? >> holly williams in istanbul, thank you. iraqi troops have resumed their offensive to recapture the country's second largest city from the islamic state after a two-week pause. iraqi forces pushed deeper into mosul with the help of u.s.-led coalition air strikes and that is the last major stronghold for isis in iraq and the largest iraqi military operation since
2003. yesterday us officials say a coalition air strike hit a van and carrying isis fighters but there may have been american casualties. the u.s. is investigating. the us coast guard is looking for a plane that it believes crashed into lake erie. the plane took off from cleveland, ohio, last night and headed to the ohio state university airport in columbus. helicopters searched for the plane but both searches were called off because the water was too rough. they believe six people may have been on board that plane. new tactics to protect massive crowds on new year's eve. that story is ahead on "cbs this morning." first, it's time to check your local weather.

russia's foreign ministry wanted to kick out 35 americans, but putin said he would not stoop to the level of, quote, cooking diplomacy. he also said he'll consider the next administration's actions before deciding any further response. >> under the u.s. sanctions, 35 officials from the russian embassy in washington and the russian consulate in san francisco have 72 hours to leave the united states and by noon today, russian access will be denied to two moscow-owned compounds one in maryland and one in new york. president obama's executive action also identifies sanctions. two russian intelligence services for their role in hacking attacks, four individual officers and three companies are also named. the two russians are being identified as cyber criminals. >> president obama order onned the sanctions in retall statiiar cyber attacks for the 2016 election. they say the president wanted to send a message. >> the president is mindful of retaliation measures when he
makes these actions, but the president wanted today is to make sure that russia knew we weren't going to accept their interfering in our elections, that for too long, russia has engaged in cyberactivity and that is unacceptable. >> the white house says additional covert actions against the russians will not be announced because they are % highly classified. in statement, prck president-elect trump said it's time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. nevertheless i will meet with lers of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation. house speaker paul ryan said the new sanctions were overdue. >> republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham said the sanctions were small price for russia to pay. the senators say that they intend to lead the effort in the new congress to impose stronger sanctions on russia and incoming senate democratic leader chuck
schumer tweeted, strongly support the obama administration's work to fight back against russia's intravenous in our election. we need to punch back and punch back hard. >> "the new york times" national security correspondent david sanger has written extensively about russia's effort to influence the 2016 election. in hi article today he called the actions, quote, the strongest american response yet to a state sponsored cyberattack and he is good enough to join us this morning from washington. good morning. >> great to be with you, josh. >> what do these actions -- i know, again, they were called -- you called them the strongest american response yet to a cyberattack but what do they really mean for loourussia. >> >> they are the strongest to a cyberattack but we don't have a lot history there. the strongest until now had been some fairly modest sanctions against north korea for its attack on sony two years ago. i think the big question here are these strong enough to
create a deterrent, not only to the russians, not only for the next american election, but for the elections that are coming up in germany and in france, and to other countries that might take a look at the techniques that the russians used here, this combination of new cybertechniques and sort of old-styled information war fare, and figure out a way to make use of it themselves. and i'm not persuaded that what the administration is working its way toward here yet is effective cyberdeterrence and certainly quite late as many of president obama's own aides concede. >> david, you're talking about those sanctions that have been made public. the obama administration has said they will take covert actions. will that be effect and what people want to see if it might not deter russia either if it's not public? >> very good point. the whole key to the deterrence here is that the price you pay is pretty obvious. otherwise, you're not deterring
other actors who would go on. there are a number of things in the cyber realm that the united states could do to russia. it could expose many of the financial dealings of the oligarch and expose putin's own fortune and hoe the oligarchs helped him get that and knock holes in the censorship system that the russians have developed around the internet. it could do any of those things. my guess is the u.s. action will be pretty cautious because throughout this from the first, the white house got a whiff of this in the summer of -- in last summer was that they have been concerned about escalation, cyberescalation from the russians. you don't want to get on an escalation ladder you can't get off. >> a short time ago, russian president vladimir putin said he would not expel any u.s. diplomats.
what do you make of this decision? >> boy did he play this well. he has theirs foreign minister saying i recommend it. it was made to be turned down so putin can step in and say, you know, i'm ignoring this and moving on to donald trump. if you read the rest of the statement, it's i don't want to interrupt the vacations of these american diplomats. then he invites the american kids of the diplomats to come to the kremlin around new year's and enjoy the christmas trees. so he is doing everything he can possibly do to say, i'm forgetting about barack obama, i'm moving on to the next guy. >> to that point, david, you also wrote that there is a belief that perhaps these actions were intended to box in donald trump who has now said while saying for the last couple of days that people should move on, that he will meet with members of the intelligence community next week. what do you make thus far of president-elect trump's response?
>> well, i thought it was interesting that he said he would meet the intelligence representatives next week. it's not as if he hasn't already been receiving intelligence reports and presumably those have included some about the russian hacking. in fact, last summer when he became the nominee. he has consistently wanted to dismiss the thought that russia could be involved. but i detected in that latest statement a sort of willingness to be open at least to the evidence, which i think is a helpful thing. president obama's actions, though, i think, were definitely intended as -- primarily at the russians but, secondarily trying to box in mr. trump. what he has to do after january 20th is basically lift these sanctions and reallow diplomats who are suspected of really being spies into the country. it's pretty clear that president-elect trump's own party would be pretty upset about that. >> to be continued. david sanger of "the new york
times," thank you very much. we appreciate it. >> great to be with you. the strongest snowstorm to hit new england in two years is making travel dangerous this morning. a powerful nor'easter brought blizzard-like conditions and emergency crews worked through the night as slippery roads left drivers stranded and sent cars sliding off highways. >> snowplows had a hard time keeping up with the storm. areas of western maine were pummeled with nearly two feet of snow. more than 40,000 people in that state lost power and parts of new york and vermont and new hampshire are expected to end up with a foot or more of snow. social media is changing the way retailers reach out to consumers. ahead, a look at some of the most successful holiday ads and the new tactics companies are employing to get your attention. first, it's time to check your local weather.

jeannine poggi is a reporting at advertising age and joins us now. good to see you. >> great to be here. good morning. >> these ads are using hollywood fire power what is the ultimate goal? is it to get more people into the stores, obviously, or to go viral. >> whenever you're creating some big marketing campaign, it's important that you drive traffic and drive people online into stores. but really what these type of campaigns, they are looking to build awareness for the brand. they want to tell a story and the product sitz in the back seat and it's really about telling that story and getting people to understand the brand and the total voice of the brand. >> for every ad that we see with adrien brody we see many with celebrities like a super bowl sunday, for instance. what goes into that decision, i suppose? >> it's really about what the message is that they want to come across. is it about star power and really coming out there with glitter and glamour? or is it telling a more subdued story, a message?
we are seeing longer ads that are going online that are 60 seconds to three minutes that are short movies, if you look at them. and it's really about what the story they want to tell is and how they want to connect with the consumer. >> does going viral translate to better sales? >> not necessarily. it surely is something that it's helpful and helps build awareness for a brand but one doesn't equate to the other. it's really about getting that message out there and, you know, going, driving even across borders. you're seeing a lot of ads this holiday season from outside the u.s. that were extremely popular and they are all on youtube. so consumers with catcan watch >> you say there is a theme this year. amazon has an ad out where an e-mom and another buy each other gifts. is that a trend we see going forward and how effective is it? >> i think so. i think after a year we saw our country so divided that retailers really saw the need for an extra boost of humanity. and i think we are going to see
that going through 2017, especially coming into the super bowl, i'd expect some more lighter toned ads and happier ads versus the more somber ads that sometimes we see during the super bowl season. >> this is the ongoing mountain decline it seems for advertisers how to harness the digital age and see them spentiding almost % more on ad. is this suggesting this is money well spent? >> a great opportunity for them to just advertise their own ads. you see a lot of advertisers creating these teasers for their spots and you saw john lewis, uk department store creating three teasers build up to their holiday ad. it's an opportunity to really make the ad a piece of content. it's more than just here is a 30-second commercial. it's here is our story and here is a little movie and piece of content for you. >> how does a store like john stewart decide what to create? >> john stewart had very somber
ads and this year they took a more human humorous tone. it's getting people excited and happy and i think we are going to see more of that in 2017. >> jeannine poggi, thank you for stopping by. >> thanks for having me. >> happy new year. >> thank you. a texas police officer takes a new approach to enforcing the law. ahead, why he gave a teenager caught smoking marijuana the option to do push-ups instead of jail time. there he is doing those push-ups. you're watching "cbs this morning." ♪ the itsy bitsy spider went up the waterspout. down came the rain and clogged the gutter system creating a leak in the roof. luckily the spider recently had geico help him with homeowners insurance. water completely destroyed his swedish foam mattress. he got full replacement and now owns the sleep number bed.
