7:05 am
scrapping altogether the director of national intelligence. >> we'd like to present you a copy of our report. >> congress created the director of national intelligence after 9/11 found they were not sharing information that could have prevented the 9/11 attacks. the goal was to have all 16 intel jency agencies report to the dni. he said they may all be present in a briefing with mr. trump to present a finalized report on russia's hacking. >> there's a difference between believing the data and the outcome. >> sean spicer, the president's incoming press secretary raised concerns about multiple layers of bureaucracy. >> part of this is understanding do they all share the same conclusion, what are their concerns? >> now, intelligence experts
7:06 am

7:10 am
happy birthday. >> thank you,cy. so what do you make of this? the president obviously during the campaign has expressed his displeasure with the cia. surely the security adviser has questions about the cia and intelligence agencies. what is he going to do? >> well, there are lots of people who have questions about the intelligence agencies and have for a long time. there are a lot of questions whether the agencies are organized in the right way. obviously skepticism as mike pence talked about yesterday is a healthy virtue. with the skepticism he has, not just skepticism but mockery and derision that has been directed at all of the intelligence agencies while at the same time being credulous about julian assange, not being skeptical there, there's a question if he has some big policy proposal, some real idea of how to reorganize the intelligence agencies or if, in fact, he's reacting in some way about a conclusion with regard to the
7:11 am
russia hack iing. >> the thing is the fbi, cia, dia are all expected to brief him. he lays out this attack that says, i'm going to change the whole system and the way it works. >> look. he knows how to -- 000 dominate headlines. i don't know if he's going to intimidate anyone. the intelligence agencies are tough to intimidate, but i do think he knows how to get his point across. you're going to see this next week, his decision to schedule a conference on the same day as tillerson goes for his swearing-in. >> don't forget they're going before congress and then privately off the record with a whole group of heads of congress. >> look. today john mccain, lindsey
7:12 am
graham have made it clear the purpose of this hearing today is to allow essentially the intelligence community to fight back against donald trump. that is -- they're essentially giving the intelligence agencies a stage on which to make the case for their conclusions. >> and that's on the record before they come to new york to see him. >> how will this affect their rain with republicans. lindsey graham has made it clear. >> look. i think he's picking some fights. yesterday john mccain said he thought he without vote for rex tillerson when pigs learn to fly. so there are some places where the president-elect is picking fights. he may win those fight, but they're going to be real fights and this is one area. >> john heilemann, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> happy birthday again. chicago police have video of a disturbing assault that was livestreamed on facebook. we want to alert viewer as what you're about to see is tough to

7:14 am
suburban home for days. in the video he's repeatedly choked and called the "n" word. his clothes are slashed and he's tear rowized with a knife. they repeatedly call out donald trump and laugh at the camera while reading comments. the victim was eventually released. officers later spotted him on the streets appearing disoriented. he apparently knew one of his attackers. we're going to put this [ bleep ] in a trump -- >> reporter: a disturns call from a neighbor led to the four individuals being arrested. investigators say hate crime charges are possible. >> it's sickening. it's sickening. it makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that. i've been a cop for 28 years but it still amazes me how you still see things that you just
7:15 am
shouldn't. >> the video was taken down on wednesday by facebook which says it has a team on call 24/7 to respond to inappropriate live broadcasts. a company spokesman told "cbs this morning," we do not allow people to celebrate or glorify crimes on facebook and have removed the original video for this reason. gayle? >> that was very despicable and very tough to watch. thank you very much, dean. the man convicted of murdering nine people inside of a charleston chur lch be back in court today. the jury will decide whether dylann roof will receive the death penalty. in court yesterday he explained why he's representing himself. he said, quote, i am not going to lie to you. there is nothing wrong with me psychologically. he had written, quote, i do not regret what i did. i feel pity that i had to do what i did in the first place. roof says he has no plans to
7:16 am
call any witnesses. we have breaking news where a coast guard is trying to put out a fire on a platform. they say four people on the platform went into the water and were rescued. there are no reported injuries. so far there is no word on any environmental damage. federal safety officials are gtsing the crash of a crowded commuter train on the busiest railroad. it slammed into the train station yesterday. more than 100 people were hurt. the worst injury is believed to be a broken leg. michelle miller is inside the terminal in brooklyn with the investigation. michelle, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that is track 6 where the crash actually took place. now, the ntsb has recovered the train event data recorder. that should give them information about how fast the train was traveling as well as its braking system. we should note the ntsb plans to
7:17 am
interview three of the crew members including the engineer to find out exactly what went wrong. >> our mission is to understand not just what happened but why it happened. ntsb investigators say long island railroad train 2017 failed to stop as it rolled into brooklyn's busy atlanta terminal on wednesday morning. >> it was going faster than normal because i take this train every day. as soon as i said that in my mind, that's what when the impact happened. >> reporter: more than 400 passengers were in the packed train. many were already standing as they prepared to get off at the station. >> boom, and like the train went -- people fell out of their seats, people fell in the aisles. >> reporter: transportation officials say at the end of the track the train went up and over a bumper block used to prevent such accidents. the front car lifted off the rails and crashed into a workspace just past a platform.
7:18 am
>> accidents happen. we have been through a number of them over the past few years. many of them, frankly, we were not this lucky. >> reporter: one of those was in september when a new jersey transit train accelerated and smashed through a bumper post in hoboken. one woman was killed. about 110 others were injured. after that, new jersey transit required a conductor to be in a train's cab to assist the engineer during a ride. it's a rule they're considering. >> the most important thing we want to do now is talk to the people who can perhaps tell us what happened. that's the engineer, the engineer's assistant, and the conductor. >> reporter: it's unknown how fast the train was going at the time of the crash, but the speed limit there was 5 miles an hour. investigators may look into whether positive train control could have prevented this. that technology uses sensors and gps to slow down and stop a train. as of september, only 15 of 580

7:58 am
7:59 am
8:00 am
good morning. it is thursday, january 5th, 2017, otherwise known as charlie rose's birthday. we have brian at the consumer electronics show. first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> electing to revamp the government. >> he knows how to dominate intelligence. >> i think he knows how to get his point across. >> with repeal, all be assured the fight has moved on to who's going to get the blame if people
8:01 am
lose coverage. >> they're expected to file charges. during the alleged attack they repeated to shout profanities not only at their victim but about donald trump. >> this is where the accident took place. the ntsb plans to interview three of the crew members to find out exactly what went wrong. >> it's cold in this part of the country. put on your coat and your skis. >> your skis. >> find somebody to snuggle with. >> the guest list includes oprah, samuel l. jackson. bradley cooper, beyonce, and jay z. and then at the end of the party beyonce and jay z will move out and chachi and gary busey will move in. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. president-elect donald trump is considering plan to reorganize the intelligence community.
8:02 am
he may significantly cut back the office of director of national intelligence. mr. trump has not yet named a new director. sources involved in the discussions tell cbs news he may leave the post vacant. they say it would reduce staffing and eliminate another layer of bureaucracy. congress created the director of national intelligence after they found agencies like the cia and fbi were not sharing information that could have prevented the attacks. >> mr. trump questions the intelligence community especially over questions that russia hackers tried to influence the 2016 election. the president-elect has also praised russian president vladimir putin and julian assange. he promised on new year's eve to divulge what he knows about the election hacking. >> i know a lot about hacking and it's a very hard thing to prove. i also know things other people
8:03 am
don't know, so they cannot be sure of the information. >> what is it that you know that other people don't know? >> you'll find out on tuesday or wednesday. >> mr. trump has not yet released any information about the hacking. u.s. intelligence agencies are expected to brief president obama on the hacking findings. the president ordered the report in december. president-elect trump will get that very same briefing tomorrow. four of the highest ranking intelligence officers plan to participate. jeff pegues looks at what to expect with this unprecedent meeting. good morning. >> good morning. it going be unprecedent with donald trump hosting the meeting on friday. four of the chiefs are expecting to be there including the direct ore f national intelligence, james clapper, james comey, john brennan and admiral mike rogers.
8:04 am
the meeting comes at a time when trump has publicly questioned their findings including their conclusion that russia was behind the hacks of the dnc and top democratic officials. friday's briefing in new york will also -- and this is adding to tin treeg -- mark the first meeting between fbi director comey and the president-elect. law enforcement sources tell us there has not been any contact between the director and mr. trump since the election. comey, as you know, has kept a relatively low profile by avoiding national media attention since he decided to reopen hillary clinton's private e-mail server investigation days before the election. charlie? >> thanks. the president asked democrats yesterday to defend the law. pence worked with republicans to kill it. on wednesday the senate approved the resolution to fast track repeal of the affordable care act. republicans say the law was always a failure and is getting
8:05 am
worse. democrats say there are benefits and republicans never worked with them to fix the problems. >> look out for the american people. >> the american people voted decisively for a better future for health care in this country. >> the republicans say repeat and replace. the only thing that it has going for it is ill literation. they have no replacement. >> we have a plan to replace it. we have plenty of ideas to replace it. you'll see as the weeks and months unfold what we're talking about with replacing it. >> people are off of health care without having a plan to provide health care to those people. >> republicans say transition period will follow a repeal. people can keep their insurance while they work on a replacement plan but insurance companies could leave the skparjs once they see obamacare is gone. the trump tweeted, obamacare was a lie and it's time for
8:06 am

8:07 am
definitions. one example is this phone from lenovo. it has a depth sensor, the first phone to have it. which means as you look at the world you can see the world through it but use this sensor to create and overlay objects. you might go furniture shopping virtually if you will. it's borrowing from the virtual and augmented worlds. it's easier to see than to describe. this is a first. if you really want to go high horsepower, microsoft has this. you can be aware of the world around you. you're not putting on goggles around your vision but bring things in that are either objects or people or avatars that are in the world around you, not just following your vichlgts again, easier to see than to describe but this is the new mixed reality term. that's kind of the new buzz word. >> what about smart cars? what are you seeing with the trend with smart cars?
8:08 am
>> everybody is talking autonomous and connected. they can be related or separate. the connected part tends to be about entertainment and services right now. but what i think is really interesting here is we're starting to see vehicles getting to the market and they're going there in a way when they say we're going to be safe enough and we can start to prove it. the other thing is connecting cars to homes. ford, for example, now on the market with amazon alexia technology so you can control your home from a car or car to your home. it's what ties them together. it's the glue. >> that's cool. >> got ahead. >> go ahead. >> go ahead. >> what about televisions. >> go ahead, brian. >> they're getting bigger and thinner. which is a nice trend. samsung, lg both rolled out
8:09 am
televisions that are incredibly thin. a tenth of an inch. it's a pricey one. here's one called the drone. a hover cam. it's got a camera that can see me. not just see me, it knows my famous therefore by visual recognition it can follow me and take videos of my life and take stills. it's kind of the ultimate selfie cam. our arms are only so long but i'd like to have a camera further away that's capturings clips of my family, my life. it's very cool vision technology wrapped up in a drone as well. and alongside that if you want to kind of in a similar area, take a look at robotics. i've got one next to me that's not just robotics but looks like a little robot. look how charming.
8:10 am
they're talking about what kind of relationship will you have with a roy bot in your home so that you actually like it and don't just get benefit from it. >> i don't if i want a relationship -- brian, i don't know about a relationship with a robot. but there is something that caught my eye about a smart hairbrush. what in the world is a smart hairbrush? >> kerastase, a well known hair brand and a smart products company have this product. it's a microphone. as you brush your hair -- it doesn't do me a whole lot of good. it can hear hair breakage and it can hear accelerometers if you're brushing too hard or brushing wrong. there's, of course, an app. it will say, you know, you told us your hair has got breakage and we can tell by how you're using it and prompt you to use different products and change the way you use your brush. it's a smart hair brush.

8:17 am
altogether. it comes after a five-fold increase in peanut allergies in children. dr. tara narula is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> i think this is so fascinating. we know so many children have these allergies. >> just this weekend my husband asked should we give our 9 9-month-old peanut butter. this comes as a result of a report publishing in 2015. children under 15 months who were given peanut products on average had an 80% reduction in developing peanut allergies compared to those who didn't receive it. they break infants into three categories of risk. high-risk very those who have severe eczema or egg allergies or both. with the help of a doctor to either do skin testing or blood testing to determine if and how
8:18 am
to be introduced. >> and it may have beneficiary effects for other food allergies? >> it may. research is going on. the hope is that it may actually have relevance in terms of milk and egg allergies in some of these other things, that there's this window of opportunity where the inmun system can be reconditioned to tolerate certain proteins. go ahead. >> i'm sorry. i didn't mean to interrupt. is the reaction immediate if you have some kind of reaction to it? >> it usually is early on. they want you to give it small amounts and then watch the child for about ten minutes and up to two hours because it can be delayed. the other thing is in a child who has moderate eczema, that can be introduced as early as six months and that can be dub at home.
8:19 am
no eczema or egg allergy, you can do it as the family has preferenced. >> it's so opposite what we've been told. i was told, don't eat it, don't eat it. why is it working now? >> i don't totally understand it. it's a complex between genes and the environment. we need a lot more research but part of it was spurted by individuals in israel giving their child something similar to peanuts. there's still a lot that we're learning about. >> i think this is so fascinating because i know so many parents struggling with food allergies and i think if we can reintroduce these foods at an early age, we may be able to help people. >> it's preventive. >> ask your doctor. >> i think it would be horrible to deprive a person of peanut

8:23 am
and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto®. insurance changes? xarelto® has you covered.
