[ cheers and applause ] >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. toyota. let's go places. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose is off and recovering nicely. we're happy to tell you that from his heart surgery. good news. >> so anthony mason is with us. >> happy valentine's day. >> happy valentine's day to you, too. >> red alert. >> that's right. we begin with this. the trump administration faces a high-level shake-up after less than a month in office. the president's national security adviser general michael flynn suddenly resigns late last night. this follows conversations with russian officials. >> general flynn admit head didn't tell vice president mike pence and other officials everything about those discussions. he is the shortest national serving national security adviser in modern history. screaming kellogg will take over
7:04 am
the job for now. margaret brennan is at the white house with the fallout from flynn's late-night departure. margaret good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, michael flynn has resigned ending that general's more than 33 years in public service. questions continue to swirl about the extent of his potentially illegal contacts with russia. whether the president knew about them. and if they impacted u.s. securit security. >> reporter: after just 22 days on the job, general michael flynn stepped down from his post. in his resignation letter, flynn blamed the fast pace of events for causing him to inadvertently leave out information. and yet evidence surfaced monday that the justice department had warned the white house last month that flynn had deceived
7:05 am
him about his contacts with russia. however, flynn was allowed to continue advising president trump on sensitive national security matters. >> as of today, we are officially putting iran on notice. >> reporter: early monday, the white house was sending mixed signals about whether his job was in jeopardy. counsel counselor kellyanne conway. >> yes. >> reporter: and then a statement, quote, the president is evaluating the situation. but it was vice president pence's anger over flynn's deception that caused mr. trump to discuss his role. the president will now have to find a new national security adviser in the face of global risks. including provocative actions by north korea and iran. retired lieutenant general joseph keith kellogg, a national security adviser to the trump
7:06 am
campaign, will temporarily take over flynn's position. he's also a candidate to permanently fill the job along with retired admiral robert harward. and david petraeus who will visit the white house later this week. less than two hours before the high-profile shake-up, mr. trump praised his staffing choices during the swearing in of his treasury secretary. >> the disappointment that i'm following through on the appointing on the very best and very brightest. >> reporter: this morning russian lawmakers said flynn's resignation was intended to undermine relations with the u.s. but, gayle, the kremlin itself has declined to comment. is there thank you very much, margaret. cbs news news fran townsend is a former adviser to george w. bush. he joins us.
7:07 am
good morning. >> 4:00 in the afternoon, kellyanne conway said he has the full support of the president. by the end of the day, he's out. what does this is a to you? what do you think happened behind the scenes? >> sometimes, the white house just can't win. go get notified by the justice department, according to "the washington post," about this information. and if acted then they might have been accused of obstructing an ongoing investigation. if you you're in the white house and you get this sort of notification, it's a no-win situation. i don't think -- you know, you have the canadian prime minister yesterday. you have bibi netanyahu there tomorrow. with all of this in the press now, it becomes a huge distraction. and it's unfair to the president, frankly. and i don't think they have much of a choice. >> but, granted, you mentioned the white house was warned about this weeks ago by the fbi. >> yeah. >> and the specific concern that
7:08 am
was relayed was that flynn could be open to blackmail on this very issue. what's the significant of that? >> oh, look, this is a huge -- this is of huge significance. but as i say, the fact is that the justice department and the fbi clearly notified the white house to let them know is this an ongoing investigation and he may have deceived them. i will tell you, it's hard to imagine that mike flynn would have intentionally deceived them. this is a man, as you said, 30 years in the military. most of it in the intelligence committee. he would have known there are transcripts of it. you have to assume he didn't remember the details of the conversation. even allowing for that, assuming the best, you know, if you're the vice president and the president, you cannot have somebody working for you, advising you that you don't -- you have to question their trust and credibility. there's no room for that. >> and, fran, democratic congressmen are now called for a classified briefing on what
7:09 am
happened here. from your perspective, what do you want to know at this point? >> oh, i have to assume that members on the hill want to read that transcript for themselves. we're reading a lot into it because we're getting reports second and third hand. but if you're on capitol hill and you're in an oversight role, you want to see the transcript. you want the fbi actually conducting the investigation up there briefing you. >> fran, we also want to talk about the escalating situation in north korea. last night, the u.n. security council unanimously condemned north korea's latest ballistic michl test. it called sunday's test a grave violation of international law. china signed on to that statement. the country is one of north korea's only allies. adriana diaz is in beijing following china's reaction. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, north korea said sunday's launch was for self-defense. it comes after months of quiet and at a particularly sensitive time for beijing. just as relations for the trump
7:10 am
administration were starting to fall. so this launch adds a new layer of uncertainty for the region, that's still trying to get a read on the new and up predictable u.s. president. the missile tested sunday was a new type. using fuels not liquid to eject from the mobile launcher. it's more stable and allows for less advanced warning. analysts say the achievement say dangerous step forward in north korea's. pursuit in a deliverable weapon. and it's a first test for president trump. >> obviously, north korea is a big, big problem and we will deal with that very strongly. >> reporter: and it also potentially pits the new administration against china, north korea's only major ally. less than a week that mr. trump smoothed things over in a phone call with chinese president
7:11 am
jinping. at the center for possibly policy -- >> china wants to encourage north korea to liberalize its economy, to open up to the international community. >> reporter: 90% of north korea's trade is with china. leading western officials to accuse beijing of propping up the neighboring dictatorship. but china says it's doing its part by signing on to sanctions. china has implemented the resolution. china fears any future action could destabilize the all right shaky regime and turn north korea into its enemy. >> now, the western country wants china to take the consequences of protecting north korea. >> reporter: china doesn't want to be caught in the middle? >> yes. >> reporter: the u.s. and south korea will hold their annual large-scale military operations in march. just this morning, north korea
7:12 am
said those operations could seriously undermine peace and security in the region. they could also close the door to any direct engagement between north korea and the u.s. and push north korea to test even larger and more powerful missiles. anthony. >> adriana diaz, thank you. i want to bring fran townsend back in. what are the options for the trump administration to respond to this? >> well, you know, the u.s. has been frustrated over the course of now a decade with north korea. the bush administration tried. the obama administration tried. there will be meaningless statements of condemnation out of the u.n. as we saw yesterday. that doesn't do much. that's more of the same that hasn't been effective. if this must be an engage meant that has the largest agenda than just north korea with china. we've got to get china to focus on using -- they're the oxygen that allows north korea to
7:13 am
continue to operate. and we have to get them to use that leverage, to apply real pressure on the north koreans to dial back. it's not an easy problem. because the trump administration doesn't have direct leverage itself. >> all right, fran townsend, thank you so much. >> thank you. the senate confirmed two more of president trump's cabinet nominations. steven mnuchin was sworn in. only one democrat joe manchin votes for the financier. mnuchin is expected to play a key role in the coming weeks. the department of veterans affairs shulkin was the top official during the obama administration. nearly 200,000 people evacuated from their homes in northern california are still unable to go home. if an emergency spillway at the oroville dam continues to erode, their homes would be in the path of potentially catastrophic
7:14 am
flooding. the evacuation order covers several counties and towns in the oroville area north of sacramento. john blackstone is at the dam on whether officials. >> reporter: good morning. >> reporter: good morning as water continues to rush down the feather river here. still no word on whether the 180,000 people will be able to return to their homes. meanwhile, the agency that issued the license to build the dam now wants some answers about how these problems started and how they can be fixed. as billions of gallons of water rush out of lake oroville, officials here in california are rushing to fix the dam's two spillways. both the main one and the emergency backup. >> so far, it's holding and that's why the evacuation is still in place because there's uncertainty. and the norm is better be safe than sorry. >> reporter: governor brown says he's unaware of any newly
7:15 am
surfaced report from 2005. a motion filed with the federal emergency relate tore commission warning that if the emergency spillway was used it would cause significant erosion. on monday, the agency ordered the department of water resources to convene an independent panel to determine the caution of the spillway failures. >> it was chaos. everything was rushing out. >> reporter: those evacuated say they want answers, too. >> i'm no engineer, i don't ever want to be but i don't think it was handled right at all. >> reporter: meanwhile, officials are taking measures to shore up the emergency spillway. crews are lifting bags of stone while they're letting out water faster than coming in. it's a race for later this week. when will you let people back? >> i would anticipate that we'll be able to make a decision in the relatively near future. but the bottom line is i want to
7:16 am
make sure that the decision i make keeps people safe. >> reporter: the sheriff told me that, of course, he has the final say on deciding when people will be allowed to return to their homes. of course, he says, he's working with the many experts who are working to keep the dam safe. gayle. >> john, thank you. >> the university of connecticut women's basketball team is celebrating an at ton initialling sports milestone this morning. the huskies notched their 100th straight win last night. that sets the new bar for college athletics. why? because this winning streak began in november 2014. michelle miller is inside the pavilion in connecticut. michelle, i know this area well, i know people there are over the moon. >> reporter: this one is big for you, i know, gayle, gampel pavilion, they may have moved on to volleyball practice but last night was all about women's basketball. one former teammate with three national championships under her belt told me, hey, this is just
7:17 am
another game on our way to the ncaa tournament but for fans this was a game they will never forget. >> let's go huskies! >> reporter: as time ticked off the clock -- >> the uconn huskies have beaten south carolina -- >> reporter: uconn women sailed into sports history. the 11-point victory against south carolina capped a win streak over two years in the making. >> uconn makes its 100th -- >> reporter: julia swanson was one 10,000 fans to see the win. >> the legacy lives on. >> reporter: uconn rewrote the record books last month when he notched their 91st consecutive win. >> 91 wins in a row for connecticut and counting. >> reporter: smashing the numbers they set seven years ago. by saturday, they had won eight more. >> 99 in a row with the century
7:18 am
mark on the line. >> reporter: the centennial victory sets a benchmark not just in women's basketball but men's, too. after coach john wooden led the ucla men's team to a quaint 87 wins back in 1994. the huskies 100-game winning streak eclipses any team in both women's and men's professional sports. playing them among the greatest in history including the new york giants, the l.a. lakers, the pittsburgh penguins and yes, the new england patriots. after the game, the $100 bill with coach's name on them. >> 100 is 100. everybody gets enamored by that nuber. it's no different than 99 but everybody is excited about the
7:19 am
number. >> reporter:. uconn women have amassed 11, count them, 11 ncaa titles winning the last four in a row. but consider this, now, more than half of the women here don't even know the agony of defeat because they simply weren't around, norah, the last time the lady huskies lost a game. >>s that pass naturing. >> that geno auriemma is a rock star. >> a dinner and a show. why officials say president

7:43 am
good ship explorer is not here for sightseeing, throw there's plenty to see. although nobody shouts "thar she blows" this time in open waters people do jump into small boats to chase them just like in the old days. this hunt, though, isn't about killing whales, it's about saving them. it's about giving them a health check. and the prognosis isn't particularly good. >> one of the reasons we study stop predators and killer whales are top predators. >> reporter: they're modern hunters who use the latest tools. they use a drone fitted with equipment to monitor the whale's condition. >> with a small drone, we can fly it just a little over 100 feet. the whales don't know it's there. and fly a camera much lower. the quality of the images are so much better. >> reporter: better pictures but it turns out not better whales. the images of this pod of killer whales are not encouraging.

7:45 am
the whales? >> uh-huh. the droplets here, from that, we take them back to the lab and use genetic techniques to identify the micro organisms here. >> reporter: it's early in the program and john and holly are just building up a database of what comes out of the whale's blow hole. but if the whale is unwell, the theory is you'd effectively be able to smell it on their breath. in the meantime, they can only take an educated guess on why their finding sick whales here in these pristine waters which like edge else are getting warmer. the packed ice around which the whales normally hunt is not as abundant as it used to be. neither is the food that they hunt for. >> hypothesis is there's hunting for food. >> reporter: fewer seals?
7:46 am
>> it's certainly a hypothesis. >> reporter: the next time john and holly are down here, they'll be looking for these whales hoping they're still around. now because it's so difficult to work in much of the year, wildlife research is left to develop in an arctic. everybody knows about the polar bears it's time to learn about the killer whales. >> mark phillips at palmer station in antarctica. >> without the photographer, kenton young, talking about you. >> it's fascinating that they can bring in a drone to collect the blood. that's incredible. tomorrow, mark will give us an inside look at palmer station work. what scientists have learned over decades in the population of one type of penguins. that's tomorrow right here on "cbs this morning."

8:04 am
>> that's a great point because these issues had been swirling around general flynn for at least a month. and remember, what started all of this is the impositions of sanctions by president trump from president obama in return for interference in the election. the question here is if president trump knew about this, and knew of the justice department concerns which appears to have come from sally yates, the deputy attorney general who he fired not long ago for her unwillingness to enforce the immigration restrictions, was he planning to just ignore this piece of evidence until it became public. and he couldn't any longer. >> is david, is your reporting that general flynn was acting on his own when he discussed the sanctions with the russians? or was 2 an authorized discussion which suggested either the chief of staff or the president knew about it as well? >> well, there's nothing unusual in talking to foreign diplomats
8:05 am
during a transition. almost every presidential transition does that. and general flynn made that point in his resignation letter. the problem would come if he actually made a promise, in this case, that the sanctions would be lifted. or taken care of once president trump came into office. and it's not clear that he did that. and in fact, we're had some people tell us that the actual contents of this transcript, because apparently, the conversation was being wiretapped by the nsa or the fbi. probably the fbi. were -- is ambiguous. you raise a very good question, what were general flynn's instructions? >> yeah. >> and he said himself in a tweet this morning, that while he was responsible, there are these those responsible, too. >> that tweet has not been verified. >> okay. i'm glad to hear that point. rime glad you corrected me on that. >> we don't know yet. >> i think you've raised the right question which is was he
8:06 am
acting obstruction. >> he was acting alone i think is the question. >> david, you've written this week about the ongoing turmoil on the president's national security council. where does this leave the national security council now? >> well, the council is in considerable disarray right now. and the disarray comes from the fact not only that general flynn was under this cloud. but also from the fact that they had not filled out many of the key positions, that it was unclear who was responsible for what. you had a lot of anxiety from the career staff who had stayed around and was not -- was not yet feeling as if they were involved in the conversations. and we've had some decisions made, unmentioned one earlier, concern north korea. but there were others, particularly, that raid in yemen, which we discussed a few weeks ago. where it wasn't clear that there was sort of clear pathways to
8:07 am
making decisions, in sort of a regular order, with the right kind of advice and legal counsel. >> this morning, david, a senior russian official is suggesting that the decision of mr. flynn to resign or be fired, whichever you choose to believe was meant to damage the relations between u.s. and russians. i even heard the phrase "russiaphobia." does that make sense to you? >> you know, compared to what we've learned in the past few months, gayle, about what the russians did during the course of the election. the disinformation campaign. the russian intelligence agncies stepping in to steal e-mails and make them public. it strikes me that this would be a pretty small contributor to overall relationships. >> just quickly, david, you write about north korea in "the new york times" today about why this missile test is significant in part because these tested
8:08 am
missiles provide little advance warning if we, the u.s., wanted to take a preemptive strike, correct? >> that's right. these missiles use solid fuel. and that means they can be rolled out and launched really in a matter of minutes. the old technology was liquid and you'd have a lot of warning because satellites would probably see a missile being launched on a launchpad. you'd have time to react. take a counterstrike. prepare your anti-missile defenses. so while it's not a missile that could reach the u.s., it's worrisome. >> david sanger, we leave it there. thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you, good to talk to you. medication might not be the best way to treat your aching back. our dr. tara narula, there she is, in the green time, by
