7:10 am
crafting their answers, boning up on policy because many of them are more familiar with the boardroom than a hearing room. after wooing senators for weeks, mr. trump's nominees are about to face a wall of skeptical democrats and republicans with some questions too. senator john mccain met with exxon ceo ron tillerson. the group includes two billionaires, two members of congress, two retired generals and a doctor turned presidential candidate. in fact, senate republicans packed so many confirmation hearings into one week, the staffers who vet their financial disclosures say they're overwhelmed. in a letter the governor of office ethics says the pace has left some of the nominees with unknown or unresolved ethics issues shortly before their scheduled hearings. senate democrat cory booker.

7:12 am
donald trump was briefed by top government intelligence officials on friday. he had previously questioned their conclusion for weeks. now in an interview, president obama says the report's findings were clear. >> the russians sought to interfere with the election process that the cyber hacking that took place by the russians was part of that campaign. >> government investigators are still trying to learn how widespread russian cyber attacks were. >> he is now principal of the group focused on security and risk management. he joins us from washington. good morning. >> good morning. >> so when you look at the russian hacking, what influence do you think it had. >> well, charlie, from the intelligence point of view, the influence on the campaign, did it affect votes, is not just not
7:13 am
known. it's unknowable through intelligence techniques, but i was quite stunned that the community at large with high confidence judgments, the russians did this, they did this to erode confidence in our processes. they preferred to shun secretary clinton. they then shifted as the campaign went on and became a bit more successful that they began to prefer president-elect trump, and then all three major agencies, although, only one with moderate confidence, the other two with high confidence concluded they were actually moving in the direction to help him win. that's a stunning summary. >> okay. so do you think the united states should have reacted aggressively earlier? >> yes, we should have. and, loorks the members of congress were briefed around october when that first public report came out. and based upon public reporting, charlie, it was the republican leader of the senate that
7:14 am
refused to join consensus and without bipartisan consensus to push back, president obama in essence kept his powder dry. i think that was an incorrect decision, but i understand it. >> general, that's a great point. how much sponts does he bear? he admitted in an interview over the weekend it's impossible for infor mission from siesh attacking to influence our process. >> yeah. look. i think the decision he made was made for honorable reasons. he did not want to be or appear to be manipulating our election internally. but i think when you look at this from a broader field of view, we were too timid. he should have done more. he should have been more forceful, more public, and more public pushing back on what the russians were doing. i think in retrospect we let this one slide too long, too
7:15 am
far. >> general, put this in context for us. there was a great piece in "the new york times" yesterday that said, look, what's the big deal. those who voted are sore losers and it's not a big deal because everybody does it. can you put in context why this matters and why this is a big deal. >> sure. after the formal briefing, the statement from the trump campaign kind of pushed this into, you know, we've got a really big cyber problem box and talked about the russians and the chinese and nonstate actors and so on. i totally agree. we've got a cyber problem over here. but this was not at its heart a cyber problem. this was a russia problem. this was not an isolated incident from the russian federati federation. and what did not get from the transition team was the seriousness or acceptance that we do, indeed, have a problem overall with the pattern of russia bash. we just pushed it over here into
7:16 am
the well known cyber thing and i'm going to apoimts a community and in 90 days i'm going to tell you what we're going to do about cyber. i want to know what we're going to do about russia. >> so do a lot of people. >> we'll continue this conversation. as always, great to have you on. >> thank you. the gunman accused of the deadly shooting in fort lauter wil dale will appear in court. the clip was obtained by tmz. we don't know how they obtained it. he could face the death penalty. david begnaud is outside the courthouse in ft. lauderdale. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the 9 millimeter gun that the suspect used to commit the offense is the same gun he used when he walked into an fbi office last november saying he was having terroristic thoughts and saying he was forced to

7:36 am
permits to openly carry guns like the place where the shooting occurred. he suggested it could have ended sooner if other passengers were armed. >> that's a ludicrous suggestion. if someone with a gun in the baggage claim area opened fire in the midst of hundreds of people, the life loss probably would have been worse. >> reporter: here in new york city, dozens of people a year reportedly show up here and face arrest because the gun laws differ state to state. they arrive thinking they can legally declare their firearm to the tsa not realizing under city law they need a special permit to possess it. but in other cities across the country, they can eeshlly travel arport to airport no problems at all, gayle. >> thank you very much, tony. something tells me they're going rethink that rule. someone said to me, it doesn't make sense you have to check your guns. you can't bring them on your plane but you can check it on a plane and retrieve it at baggage

7:45 am
they found evidence of personalized prices on nine out of 16 e commerce sights includes prices where they altered by hundreds of dollars. others they were steered toward more expensive hotels. but they say consumers likely won't know the exact reason. >> it depends on the retailers strategy how to price goods on his particular website. >> randall rothenberg says there's a positive side to all that tracking companies do too. it allows them to customize offers that customers do want. >> i don't want to receive ads from zappos for women's shoes. i want to receive ads from zappos for men's shoes and athletic shoes. >> but to target, they need the data about you and me. >> think of a better way of looking at it. instead of data, which sounds like an ominous word, think of

monday, january 9th, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including the first american military buildup in europe since the end of the cold war. thousands of tanks and troops are being deployed. what the show of strength means for our allies and for russia, but first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. this is the truckee river. check it out. if it goes any higher today, some of this water could go downtown. >> these nominees have spent hours in mock hearings trying to anticipate every possible question. >> how much responsibility does president obama bear for this? >> he should have done more. he should have been more
8:01 am
forceful and more pushing back on what the russians were doing. i think in retrospect, we let this one slide too long, too far. >> prosecutors say he confessed his attack and stopped shooting only when he ran out of bullets. >> it might have been expected but startling nonetheless. meryl streep one of the nominees is the one who called out donald trump. >> i have to give them credit. >> very, very well done. >> how much does charlie rose in a can cost? >> $1.98. >> $1.98. >> shom sow way paul richardson comes up with the ball. >> one hand hangs on, goes to the ground. oh, my goodness, what a catch. >> even pete carroll has to look up and watch this one on the big board. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" at 8:00 is presented by liberty musicalual insurance. i'm charlie rose with gayle
8:02 am
king. minions are under a winter weather advisory. it's blasting the west coast with strong rains and wind and even snow. the storm killed at least two people in california and triggered a flooding event in nevada. below freezing temperatures are chilling much of the country. it created dangerous driving conditions including thousands of spinouts and crashes. a russian spokesman says a new u.s. intelligence report is reminiscent of a witch hunt. >> the obama administration is boosting the american presence in europe to deter aggression. tanks have just arrived in germany. starting today they will be
8:03 am
moved to poland. elizabeth palmer spoke to commanders about the buildup. >> reporter: good morning. since the end of the cold war, the united states has been steadily drawing down its military presence in europe, but here in northern germany right now you can see that's no longer the case. in fact, it's quite the opposite. always the massive equipment of the brigade started rolling in. this is the first buildup in nearly 30 years. this impressive display of military mite is designed in large part to reassure america's nervous european allies that the u.s. military will be there standing with them against russian aggression. aggression and land grab like the 2014 invasion of crimea when
8:04 am
russian troops landed in what had been the ukraine and seized it for the kremlin. mer america's response has been to increase its support and also for nato though donald trump has said nato has become obsolete and wants to restore it. how quickly could they turn this whole thing around and pull you all out again? >> i'm not going to speculate on what the incoming president may or may not do, butly tell you this is in the interest of the united states army to build readiness. >> reporter: the commander in chief could reverse all this but it would take months or even years. meanwhile vladimir putin has already implied this buildup is pointless. it's stupid to think that russia
8:05 am
would attack anyone. but they believe a deterrent won't hurt. once they reach their final destination in eastern europe it will start large multimilitary exercises with the armies of other nato countries. norah? >> very significant developments. elizabeth palmer is reporting there from germany. now this story. president trump is firing back. this morning he tweeted, quote, meryl streep, one of the most overrated actresses in hollywood doesn't know me but attacked last night at the golden globes while accepting the cecil b. demille awards. she publicly criticized mr. trump for mocked a disabled reporter. >> this instinct to humiliate someone that's modelled by someone in the public platform, it filters down to everyone in their life because it kind oif
8:06 am
gives permission for other people to do the same thing. disrespect invites disrespect. violence insights violence. when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose. >> as for the awards themselves, the musical "la la land" walked off with several trophies including best musical or comedy. kevin frazier was on back stage with the winners. i wish i was backstage. i bet you saw and heard a lot. >> it was amazing, gayle. traditionally the golden globes is full of surprises and a good indicator of who will get a lot of love at the time and apparently "la la land" is front and center. the contemporary musical won in
8:07 am
every category in which it was nominated. ryan gosling and emma stone were honored for their acting. when you guys started this whole project, you're going sing, you're going to dance and do this whole stuff, what did you think? >> emma had this in the bag coming off "february." >> you know, it's not. it's not. >> maybe some of it. >> reporter: the la la sweep was good for other nominees. >> there was a kiss between ryan and andrew garfield. >> they did? >> i'm happy for them. >> viola davis. thank you. >> viola davis won best actress for the long portrayal in fen s fences. >> what about my life. >> he gave an emotional
8:08 am
introduction to meryl streep who echoed a vigilant call in the years ahead. >> it's our responsibility to uphold what it is to be an american and what america is about and the true meaning of what it means to pursue the american dream. >> "moonlight." >> a so-called small film won the best picture drama award. "moonlight" focuses on a man coming of age and coming to terms with being gay. >> you know it was an affirmation. we can do whatever's in our hearts. there will be somebody there who sees. >> it do you want to be his guardian? >> casey affleck's sobering performance of "manchester by the sea" earned him a golden globe. it may have sparked some sibling rivalry. >> now do you look at your
8:09 am
brother and say, i got one, too, bro. >> he knew it was coming. >> no, no. i'm kidding. no one knew. yeah, he likes to show off his hardware. he's got it like in his window. some people put like christmas lights or a menorah. ben lines up his hardware. >> now, by the way, casey told me he plans on attending several parties to celebrate his win. if you're wondering about his hair and his beard, he says it's about a guy living in the woods. he knows it's a bad look but he's keeping it real. >> congratulations. that's great. the hollywood foreign press prides itself on surprises. what was the biggest surprise? a lot of people talking about "moonlight" today. >> not only "moonlight" but "atlanta." danny glover when he won had to sit back and say, whoa, is this
8:10 am
really happening? he walks away with two golden globes. i think that was really the big surprise, "atlanta" and also, of course, the foreign film winner. >> i saw donald glover saturday night. he said, there's no way i'm going to win but i'm so happy to be aet the party. >> what about the best actress in a drama, isabella huppert. that was aed by surprise. >> a lot of people were surprised by this win. she was so happy. she said it means so much for france and foreign films that she won and it really was kind of a foreign feel if you look at a lot of the winners. >> what wuks the reaction to meryl streep's comments, kevin? because she's not an actress to get on a soapbox. to hear her described as an
8:11 am
overrated actress, it was a surprise. >> let's say this, gayle. we're talking about a woman who has won every major prize. the room which is usually raucous and loud, you could hear a pin drop while she was speaking and everyone kind of digested what she said because it was a well crafted speech. and if you didn't know where she was going at first, you quickly became aware. i thought it was -- you know, i thought that she got her point across and so i think that's kwhie you're hearing from the president-elect today. >> all right. conversation to be continued. go ahead. >> by the way, gayle, i do want to say one thing. i'm rocking the "cbs this morning" mug today because it is in honor of your 5th anniversary. congratulations, you guys. enjoy the day. >> i want one of those. we don't have one of those mugs. a collector's item. >> they're coming your way, as a matter of fact. i guarantee they'll be there tomorrow. >> thank you, kevin. that's so nice.

8:18 am
kris van cleave has spoken with the grandson of ford. he is at the auto show in detroit. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is the first day the doors have opened at the preview on the detroit auto show. there are a lot of people focusing on the future. we talked with bill ford about what's next for his company and the president-elect who has been critical of both ford and the campaign trail on the media. is that good for business? >> well, i don't know if it's good or bad, but it's the reality we are in. i actually feel like i have a very good relationship with him. you know, he's very different as you might expect one on one than over twitter. >> reporter: as executive chairman of ford motor company, bill ford is among the few who has talked directly with donald trump on a regular basis. >> do you have any concerns about a trump presidency? >> you know, look. any time there's a transition, there's a lot of unknown, but i'm really encouraged by the

dialogue. >> reporter: last week ford scrapped plans to move to mexico and instead build in michigan and add several hundred jobs. general motors and toyota took a beating from trump in the media saying make the u.s. pay or pay big border tax. >> i think nobody wants to start a trade war. when i went to sigh him, one of the things i pointed out is ford's been in mexico for over 100 years. it goes all the way back to my grandfather. part of his belief was we should build all over the country. he'll lay out a dynamic new vision for addressing gridlock in the increasingly crowded cities of tomorrow and how that will change ford into a carmaker and company, a mix of smart mobility, electric and smart cars, ridesharing apps and

"new york times" jodi kantor has interviewed hundreds of people. her book "obamas" is being reissued tomorrow with a new preface. jodi is also a cbs contributor. good morning. >> good morning. >> ever since george washington, presidents have given farewell addresses, but president obama will be the first to return to his hometown to deliver his
8:35 am
speech. what will we hear him say? >> under very tricky circumstances, right? he's about to hand the keys to the white house to a man who he disagrees with on a really fund mental level, right? >> well, who questioned obama's legitimacy. >> exactly. who rose to power by smearing him. so the president has a really tricky job to do, right? on the one hand he wants to defend his legacy. he is beginning to set up some of the opposition to donald trump for the next four years and yet as we know, president obama is a big believer in taking that kind of above the fray unifying nonpartisan tone. so what i'm really waiting to see is what is the message he chooses to deliver to the american people about how they should navigate the next four years. >> i'm guessing that one of the things he's going to talk about in reading a lot of the legacy things he's doing, there's always concern about media in the future in terms of social
8:36 am
media, in terms of fake news and all of that. >> i think you're absolutely right. and when i went back and reread my own book. >> you reread your own book? >> that with us one of the things that jumped out to me. i think president obama underfake news before the rest of us. he was in a way patient zero. he was the victim of the rumors that he was -- spread by donald trump -- not born in the u.s. if you remember in the summer of 2007 there were a lot of fake partisan rumors about the death panels and the democrats wanted to make end of life-desomething'ses for people and president obama was so concerned about this throughout the presidency. and i think a few years ago the rest of us actually didn't quite see what he was seeing. >> he came in on the message of hope and the interviews that he was talking about, he still keeps talking about the hope and optimism that he has even though the election didn't go the way
8:37 am
he thought or hoped that it would. >> right but they about the obamas as my book and plenty of other pieces have journalism have chronicled, they've been under extraordinary criticism for years. if hillary had one, they would be having a much more valedictory performance. now there's a whole lot of pressures on them to speak to the moment, speak to the trump moment, rebuild the democratic party which needs a lot of work. they're really two of the only unifying figures left in a democratic party that have been torn apart by the results of this election. so the idea that they can sort of fly off for a very long hawaiian vacation has disappear. the country is going to want to keep hearing from him. on the other hand there is a tradition of the president and first lady kind of keeping quiet. >> michelle obama, harvard trained lawyer, a woman who has
8:38 am
been successful in her own right. you're right how many times she tried to steer away from controver controversy. >> yes. so i reported a kind of behind-the-scenes look of the first lady. she was in the real throwback of a role. it's what first ladies have always found difficult. >> what do you find from her now? >> she did find her voice very much so as first lady. it was kind of an edited version. >> you heard her voice on friday when she said it was the greatest honor to be the first lady of this country. >> very emotional. >> that speech really resonated with people over the weekend. i thought it was in part because she really was quite direct, right? she was above it all. she was grarchls but her chief message was to young people. she said, do not be afraid, you know. go build a country worthy of your promise. and so even as she was very
8:39 am
gracious and polite, there was a forcefulness and a drive. >> i don't think we've heard the last of either barack or michelle obama. i'm pretty sure of that. >> nobody's suggesting that. >> i don't think so. chainsmokers, they never imagined the success they have already. the grammy
