6:32 pm
it was a sharp contrast to the friendly crowd that greeted president trump in warsaw earlier today. >> the fundamental question of our time is whether the west has the will to survive. >> reporter: at a memorial to a polish uprising against the nazis, the president committed to defending countries in the nato alliance. >> we stand firmly behind article 5. >> reporter: something he had been unwilling the say when he visited nato headquarters in may. the president also delivered his sharpest criticism of russia to date. >> we urge russia to cease its destabilizing activities in ukraine and elsewhere and its support for hostile regimes including syria and iran. >> reporter: but earlier in the day, mr. trump suggested he is unlikely to confront russian president vladimir putin about moscow's meddling in the 2016 election. the two leaders will meet tomorrow. >> i think it was russia, but i
6:33 pm
think it was probably other people and/or countries, and i see nothing wrong with that statement. nobody really knows. >> reporter: the u.s. needs russia's support to put new international sanctions on north korea. >> they are behaving in a very, very dangerous manner, and something will have to be done about it. >> reporter: in the wake of its recent missile test, mr. trump was asked if he's ready and willing to take military action? >> i don't like the talk about what i have planned, but i have some pretty severe things that we're thinking about. >> reporter: the threats posed by north korea will be a topic when president trump and putin meet tomorrow. james, they're also going to discuss a u.s. proposal to collaborate with russia to end the bloody war in syria. >> brown: margaret brennan in hamburg, thank you so much. back in washington, the government ethics watchdog who raised red flags about trump family business dealings resigned today. then he talked to our julianna
6:34 pm
goldman. >> the specter of a conflict of interest is always looming out there. >> reporter: walter shaub has been a unique voice. as the government's ethics chief, he's taken on his boss, president trump publicly, but today he gave up. >> i really feel like i've achieved all i can achieve under the current circumstances. >> reporter: he says that unless president trump eliminates all financial ties to his businesses, the american people can never be certain his policy decisions are based on what's best for the country. do you think the president and his family are using the office to enrich themselves? >> i can't know what their intention is. i know that the effect is that there's an appearance that the businesses are profiting from his occupying the presidency. >> reporter: but at this point, it sounds like you're saying you can't be sure. >> you can't be sure. so it almost doesn't matter whether they are profiting or not. america should have the right
6:35 pm
the right the right to know what the motivations of its leaders are. >> reporter: in previous administration, presidents operated under the radar. shaub changed that when he prodded mr. trump to divest his assets. >> in many ways what i was really trying to do with that is, a, communicate with the president using the medium i saw him communicate in. >> reporter: but he never spoke with the president, and shaub said the white house counsel dismissed his concerns. >> i can run my business and run government at the same time. >> reporter: ultimately mr. trump handed control of his private businesses to his sons and noted there are no conflict of interest laws for a president. his attorney also said he couldn't sell off his assets because he would lose money. >> i have no sympathy for that. he's in a position where he's going to have to send young men and women to die in combat potentially or risk their lives at least. they're paying a much higher price, so, no, it's not too much to ask somebody to incur a bit of a financial loss if they have
6:36 pm
to sell things off. >> reporter: shaub's turn was set to end in january, but he got a job with a non-partisan ethics group and felt like he could have a greater impact outside of the government. james, the white house said it accepted his resignation and appreciated his service. >> brown: julianna goldman in washington, thank you. julianna will have more on this story tomorrow on "cbs this morning." with congress in recess, many members are back home, including the republican speaker of the house, paul ryan. here's dean reynolds. >> reporter: speaker ryan has been criticized for not being accessible to his constituents in wisconsin's first district. >> hey, everybody, how you doing? >> reporter: some voters have even held mock town halls without him inch february they posed their questions to an empty chair. but today ryan's schedule included what were billed as employee town halls. and at wpc technologies in oak creek, that meant most questions were selected in advance by a
6:37 pm
company official. this was the first one. >> if you had to make a decision between attending an october regular season packers game or a brewers world series game, which would you attend? >> reporter: for the record, he said probably the brewers. there were no questions about the president or russia or the tweets, which ryan has criticized, no questions about the investigation of the administration here or at a second stop in racine. there was one about the office of the presidency, though. >> just wondering if you have any plans for running for the president in the future? >> no. none at all. that's an easy one to answer. absolutely not. >> reporter: also easy to answer was the one question about the effects of the house healthcare reform on the workers here. since all of them are covered by their employers, there's no effect. >> 50 million people get their insurance from their job, like everybody here does, and so this doesn't affect that marketplace. >> reporter: and thus no real need for ryan to defend what polls say is an unpopular piece of legislation.
6:38 pm
we wanted to ask the speaker if he thought tightly controlled events like these were a true test of his accessibility but didn't get very far. >> mr. speaker? can we ask you a question? >> reporter: primebly the speaker will be more forthcoming tomorrow, james, because that's when he's scheduled a press conference in madison, the state capital. >> brown: dean reynolds in racine, wisconsin, thank you. republican congressman steve scalise of louisiana has suffered a setback in his recovery from gunshot wounds. the majority whip was one of five people hurt when a gunman opened fire last month at a conditional baseball practice. he had another round of surgery today, and he's back in intensive care. cbs news chief medical correspondent john lapook is here. jon, back in intensive care with an infection. we know you're not his physician, but what does this mean? >> reporter: j.b., we don't have a lot of information, but causes of infection include pneumonia, urinary tract infection, and you have all
6:39 pm
these catheters and tubes in you, they can get infected. but we heard he had surgery. they didn't say where in the body, but you have to wonder about this. the bullet came in through the pelvis. they shattered it. there were hundreds of fragments of bone, and they acted like shrapnel. now, there are very important organs here and structures. one of them is the colon. now, when the colon gets injured, bacteria can leak out there. are trillions of bacteria there. they can cause a pocket caused an abscess, that's when a lot of bacteria is growing up. it can be very hard for antibiotics to reach it. sometimes you need to put a drain. if you can't do that through interventional radiology, sometimes you have to do surgery. >> brown: so good news recently he was proved out of intensive care signaling he was making progress, but he's back there now in intensive care. what does that say to you as a doctor? >> well, they probably picked up some evidence of infection. what would that be? a fever, an elevated white count, some change to his vital signs. something said there may be an infection. they said, let's move him back
6:40 pm
to a part of the hospital where we can keep a close eye on him and we can move quickly. it's a mart move when you're not sure what's going on. that's the case here. there are so many different possibilities. move him back to the safest part of the hospital. >> brown: dr. jon lapook, thank you so much. surveillance video released today shows the moment new york city police officer miosotis familia was shot to death in her police vehicle early yesterday. the gunman, alexander bonds, is seen running away with officers in pursuit. bonds was shot and killed not far away. police commissioner james o'neill says miosotis familia, a 12-year veteran, was murdered because she was a cop. today the commissioner swore in 524 new recruits, telling them it's their job to finish the work of officer familia. in dallas today, a memorial was unveiled honoring five officers who were ambushed and killed by a gunman one year ago tomorrow. the officers left 12 children. their families were given flags

6:44 pm
u.s. last year. tim stevens is the editor-in-chief of cnet's roadshow. so volvo is betting that in a few years what we want will change? >> volvo is definitely placing a bet. they're saying consume centers two or three years will want some sort of electric option, maybe not a full-on battery electric car, maybe a car that's a hybrid, but they will want that on every new car. >> reporter: volvo will continue to make existing models with gasoline engines until at least 2024. j.b., it has been a rough week for competitor tesla. the volvo announcement part of what's driven tesla spock down about 15%. >> brown: kris van cleve, thank you. up next on the "cbs evening news," hobby lobby caught smuggling ancient religious artifacts into the u.s. make your body go by forcefully stimulating the nerves in your colon. miralax is different. it works with the water in your body to hydrate and soften.
