7:07 am
disputing the results of an election he won. and both sides now worrying that he may rely on his own belief just as unfounded when it comes to the policy debates they're about to have. president trump made the claim in a meeting with congressional leaders monday night. white house press secretary sean spicer was pressed to explain whether he got the notion. >> the comment he made, he said 3 million to 5 million could have voted illegally based on the studies he has seen. >> reporter: but the association who runs the election says we're not aware of any evidence that supports voter fraud claims made by president trump. those have been floated by a few conspiracy theory websites. >> he believes what he believes based on the information he's provided. >> the white house could not provide the snoofgs that's not true. he needs to stop.
7:08 am
>> even republicans seem mystified. >> he needs to disclose why he believes that. i don't believe that. it is the most inappropriate thing for the president to say without proof. >> democrats called it an attack on the u.s. election system. >> the president ought to realize he's president. when these falsehoods are told, our republican congress has the right to reject them. >> do you feel the need to correct him and does it trouble you? >> i've already commented on that. i've seen no evidence to that effect and i've made that very, very clear. >> this comes on the heels of mr. trump's similarly discredited claim about the size of his crowds on inauguration day and one thing is for certain, charlie, if there was any evidence that millions of americans had voted illegally for democrats on election day,
7:09 am
republicans up here would have launched full-scale investigations by now. >> thank you. nancy. it could head toward a legal showdown. a native american tribe is threatening legal action to block the building of the dakota access pipeline. the president's action always called for progress on the keystone xl pipeline. the two would span 2,300 miles and carry more than 100 million crude oils of barrels a day. regulators denied an'sment for the access pipeline in december. barry petersen is there with the new fight. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. supporters consider this a victory. energy stocks jumped as the price of crude rose. as for opponents, they see this as a setback but not a surprise.
7:10 am
pipeline protesters gathered tuesday night. chanting their criticism of the president. hours after he put his support for the pipelines in writing. trump had different messages for the two pipeline companies but the bottom line was the same. get them built. >> if it's a no, give them a quick yes. if it's a yes, let's start building. >> he asked transcanada to resubmit its application for keystone. the company quickly agreed. for the dakota pipeline, trump ordered the army corps of engineers to recruit and approve in an skpe pe dieted manner. and tens of thousands of their supporters from around the u.s. protesters argue with disturbed

tribal land and say where it crosses under the missouri river could be catastrophic. in a statement standing rock tribes says the existing pipeline route risks inrefrigeratoring on our treaty rights, con tam nating our water, and the water of 17 million americans downstream. >> every investor believes that the moment -- the moment there's a change of administration this easement gets granted, the pipeline gets built, and the crude starting flowing. >> trump's 2016 financial disclosure shows the president owned up to $50,000 worth of the company stock. according to a trump spokesman, he sold his shares last june. the president says this move will create thousands of jobs, but the dakota pipeline is almost done and those
7:12 am

7:13 am
alabama judge william but it's his views on abortion and sources say senate republicans have told the white house they're worrying about his confirmation fight with democrats so gorsuch and hardiman are seen as less of a chance. pryor is a lesser known. he's replacing an icon and if one of these turns out to be more liberal than justice scalia, he will have turned the court to the left. that's why they were urging him to appoint a known principled conservative like pryor. gayle? >> thank you very much. the senators confirm trump's
7:14 am
nominee for ambassador to the united states. nikki haley was nominated 96-4. she resigned as governor of south carolina after the vote. he held the post for six years. haley tweeted this last night. thank you, south carolina. i will miss you. mr. trump said last night on twitter, quote, if chicago doesn't fix the horrible carnage going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 willings, then i will send in the feds. the president did not offer any details. chicago police say there have been 182 shootings and 38 killings in 2017. as of last night, the city's police superintendent said in a statement the department is more than willing to work with the federal government. chicago recorded 762 homicides in 2016. that total is higher than new york city and los angeles combined. president trump has asked
7:15 am
fbi director james comey to stay on the job. president obama emplalo president obama emplappointed hn 2013. trump praised him at the white house reception but the president could re-examine the relationship next year. the government agency is investigating whether comey broke protocol when he notified congress about evidence during the hillary clinton e-mail investigation. the secret service is taking action against a statement she made. yesterday there was a post around the presidential election. jeff pegues is in washington with the new controversy hitting the agency. jeff, good morning. >> good morning. the secret service led security efforts around the inauguration and is tasked with protecting elected fishls both republican and democrat but this morning one aeligibility is facing internal investigation for one of her comments that have now
7:16 am
come to light. this scene in reno shortly before the election is a reminder of what the united states secret service does every day to protect high-profile targets like the president. but this morning the agency is looking into the social media statement of an agent who suggested she wouldn't put her life on the line for president trump. car carey o'grady wrote this message on facebook in october saying i would take jail time over a bullet or an endorsement for what i believe to be disaster to this country. she ended the post with i am with her, an implicit endorsement of hillary clinton. in the report o'grady says her post was in reaction to this now infamous 2005 video where mr. trump made lewd comments about women but after posting the
7:17 am
comments oh grady said she had second thoughts saying as soon as i put it up i thought it was not the sentiment i needed to share because i care deeply about the mission. they're ware of the postings and tells cbs news they're taking quick and appropriate action. any allegations of misconduct are taken seriously. on sunday president trump singled out secret service director joseph clancey while at a law enforcement reception at the white house telling the room he's felt safe with their protection since day one. the secret service agents are barred from engaging in political activity. we did reach out but we have yet to hear back. >> all right, jeff. thanks so much. i want to update you. president trump has tweeted this morning i will be asking for a major investigation into voter fraud including those registered to vote in two states, those who

is a prescription medicine for depression. trintellix may start to untangle or help improve the multiple symptoms of depression. for me, trintellix made a difference. tell your healthcare professional right away if your depression worsens, or you have unusual changes in mood, behavior or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. trintellix has not been studied in children. do not take with maois. tell your healthcare professional about your medications, including migraine, psychiatric and depression medications to avoid a potentially life-threatening condition. increased risk of bleeding or bruising may occur especially if taken with nsaid pain relievers, aspirin, or blood thinners. manic episodes or vision problems may occur in some people. may cause low sodium levels. the most common side effects are nausea, constipation and vomiting. trintellix did not have significant impact on weight. ask your healthcare professional if trintellix could make a difference for you.

7:58 am
7:59 am
8:00 am
good morning. it's wednesday, january 25, 2017. it started at a group of screenplays waiting to be made into movies. see how it led to 21 oscars this year. first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> president trump does begin fulfilling campaign promises by tightening along the u.s./mexico borders. >> republicans asking why he's disputing an election he won. >> supporters consider this a victory in their years-long effort to build these two
8:01 am
pipelines. >> if one of these nominees turns out to be more liberal than justice scalia, he'll have actually turned the court to the left. >> this morning one agent is facing an internal investigation for her comments that have now come to light. >> winter storm warnings and weather advisories are in effect from south dakota to wisconsin. an estimated 10 to 14 inches could fall in some ort testify hardest hit areas. >> he missed the layoffs. he's got it. one point. they have done it. they have done it. the greatest regular season win in marquette history, knocking off the defejd ncaa champs and no one is going to argue. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. president trump is expected to sign executive order to begin
8:02 am
construction on the wall at the u.s./mexico border. questions remain about funding for this project. >> you may recall the president promised as a candidate mexico would pay for this wall. the mexican president will visit with mr. trump next week. later he's also expected to restrict the flow of refugees and muslims coming into the country. major garrett at the white house has covered president trump since the campaign. major, good morning. >> i want to ask you about the effect of these executive actions and orders. i mean in order to build a wall, you need congress to actually approve legislation and funding. so what's the meaning? >> exactly. when you talk about presidential action, it is most powerful and most important and most long-lasting when it's done in cooperation. it becomes a law. now, executive orders can have wide-ranging impact. we receive a little bit of both from this administration so far
8:03 am
this week. but an executive memoranda is more like a request for bureaucracy to do something. it's like a memo you might get from your boss is that policy manual you're handed when you walk into the door on your first day at the job. in all of these things the most powerful thing they have is to work with congress and sign a law. rehn, on his first week in office he signed an executive order to close the guantanamo bay detention facility. it's still open. why? because congress never agreed. >> major, suppose congress funds building of some kind of wall, whether it's $14 billion or whatever it is. what is the trrumtrump's strate for it? >> we don't know. it could be something like taxes along the border, assets taken from a captured drug kingpin, other assets. nobody knows. everything is open. all the president said is he'll
8:04 am
try to negotiate this. the mexican government has made it clear it's not going to provide any of its funds to pay for the wall, but there's going to be something in between. like el chapo or something like that. that's one idea i've heard in a grand speculative way on what might be a potential funding mechanism for at least part of the wall. >> all right. major. the meeting between the two of them may be next week. he said it will reduce taxes and, quote, unnecessary regulations to encourage companies to build more factories and hire more workers here at home. >> i think we'll go down as one of the most friendly countries. right now it's not. i have friends that want to build in the united states. they go many, many years and then they can't knlt get their environmental permit over something they've never heard of before. it's absolutely crazy. i am to a large extent an
8:05 am
environmentalist. but it's out of control and we're going make a very short process and we're going to either give you your permits or we're not going give you your permits and you're going to know very quickly. we're going to be very friendly. >> also yesterday the president gave conditional approval to resume work on two pipelines that the obama administration had blocked. the keystone xl pipeline project stretches from alberta to north dakota. it runs through sacred tribal land. environmentalists oppose both kinds. good morning. >> good to be here. >> how is the business reacting to the trump administration so far? >> i think pretty positively actually. you know, this is the first republican candidate for president that didn't have the support of fortune 500. >> he did not have it. >> he did not have it. our surveys show --
8:06 am
>> those are because of issues like trade? >> that's a big one. trade and immigration also. a lot of the companies believe immigration of high skilled employees is good for the economy. so they didn't support him going in. what they've seen afterward is the possibility that you could have some significant tax relief, possibly bring home some of those earnings. you know, american companies have something like 2 trillion dollars locked overseas that they won't bring home because the tax rate is 35%. if trump lowers that, you have a big opportunity to bring money back. it's worth huge amounts. >> he had a huge corporate plan. it sat there for a while. >> he couldn't make it happen. what has changed is they have a republican majority in congress that wants to do the same thing. so all of a sudden business sees the best environment in washington that they've been pushing for for over a decade. >> and he's speaking of those
8:07 am
concerns when he talks about the regulations to make permit processing faster. >> yeah. so this is fascinating what's going on. he's using the bully pulpit to create a national industrial policy. >> he's also threatening him too. >> are they afraid of him? >> oh, yeah. he's got a big carrot and a big stick. it's the threat of tariffs and apparently this surprised me to learn this. the president of the united states does have some ability on single companies which would be an astonishing thing. but that's what he's threatening to do. on the other side, you know, they look at their balance sheets and say, wow, if we can repate reyat, the value is huge. they're happy to place his game, create new jobs in the u.s. in the hopes of getting this regulatory bill passed. >> it was reported the other day, allen, that he read the art
8:08 am
of the trump deal. how are you hearing that business leaders are preparing and meeting with him knowing if they're upset, he will say negative things about you and your company? >> a couple of things. what they universally say is he sounds much more reasonable in private than he tends to in his twitter stream. so they -- that's part of what's made them optimistic. their one-on-one conversations with him aren't quite as -- >> what doesn't make them optimistic is a trade war with china and china has said theed you f changing "one china policy" is not negotiable. >> i think that's the big uncertainty hanging over all of this. right now the ceos i talked to are downplaying the trade threat and focusing on the possibility of reduced regulation and tax releechlt but you really don't know how this is going to play out. >> you also -- >> there's a new game in town.
8:09 am
>> and predictions are not the way for any of us to go in the media. >> they say he's very different in private than in public. >> yes. they find him more reasonable in private but then you hear something like the america first inauguration address and you wonder where this is really going. >> all right. always good to see you. >> good to be here. more and more mothers are finding buds in the marijuana industry. >> these are taller than the others. what are these? >> these are the super mothers. >> super mothers. >> kind of like you. >> oh, wow. thank you. ahead, the so-called pot moms tell chip reid about their passions and

8:16 am
will grow up to become medical marijuana. you're about to meet a group of women who deal with the unique challenge of working in this blooming industry while also being moms. ptsd, depression, insomnia, eczema. is there anything that marijuana does not help with? >> i don't know yet. >> shonda calls herself a pharmacist, but the medical marijuana she is licensed to distribute while legal in d.c. is illegal under federal law. >> when you see our patients come in every day and they say i can have a quality of life, to me that's my purpose. >> the former cell biologist has a phd and mba but first and foremost, she's a mother to four children. >> your 7-year-old m.j., has he ever seen this room? >> oh, no. >> what does mommy do for a

you're not allowed to go to their house. >> when i first decided to come into the industry i had a lot of concerns. i was a licensed attorney. i had to decide. i chose i was going to go outside the box and risk my license to do this. >> only the one dispenses the drug. leah is an attorney and president of a company that recently earned a license to dispense medical marijuana in maryland. >> some of the biggest anxieties that we all share regardless of whether we touch the plant or not is this concept that our businesses are at risk. our incomes are at risk. and that is an issue that comes up a lot. >> she guides medical marijuana patients through the red tape and she has a 10-year-old. >> the challenge for me is every time i answer a question it leads to more questions with my son, but i have that relationship with him where i will answer it. i true i to answer it in an age
8:19 am
appropriate way but he can ask me anything and he does. >> jennifer cultural pepper is a mom of two. her company does brand strategy and graphic design for the marijuana industry. >> i do feel like i have a timeline because my 9-year-old is one more year in elementary school and i think that she cannot enter middle school without having this conversation. >> so as moms are you all a little nervous? >> all of you with young children are going to let your young children watch this on tv? >> i might screen it first. >> there are now eight of these medical marijuana cultivation centers right here in washington, d.c., and they're popping up all across the nation as more and more states legalize medical marijuana for medical purposes and in some states for recreational use. gayle? >> chip, i just have to ask, why are you wearing doctor scrubs?

8:38 am
they said, it's too small for us, but because it had been on the black list, they credit that for getting movie ultimately made. >> some are getting made because they're new avenues for finance. >> there's a whole new world. but when it comes down to the sued owe system, it's really -- i won't say it's disintegrated. it's changed because of dvd sales and decline in revenue industry is facing they really double down on big tent pole franchises like, for example, the fast and the furious. beautiful movies, it's harder and harder to make them. >> it's impossible for amazon newcomers to make films that are getting attention. >> yeah. and independent financiers, they have these great companies that are making granddaughter films. be not mistaken. every one of these that you see inevitably has a story of tenacity and perseverance and luck behind it. that's how they good made. >> how many current movies are

8:40 am
writers of color, having more women writers. and the way you do that is about -- it's more than hollywood. it's created writing programs at community colleges, mentorships, internships, changing that system. and we're not there yet. >> how about having more people from diverse backgrounds makes these decisions? >> exactly. the industry decisions are overwhelmingly made by white men. their story about ""the hunger games"" and "butler," they don't want to watch a female movie with a protagonist. absolutely wrong. those movies almost didn't get made though. >> great story. >> totally fascinating, especially in oscar season. it's my first piece for the "atlantic." >> very well done. >> the "atlantic" magazine is online now. it's the latest form of
