servers, used american slang, they gained 50 pounds. and welcome to the weekend, everyone. i'm anthony mason along with bianna golodryga who's in for alex wagner. we begin this morning with the investigation of special counsel robert mueller on election tampering, which has led to the first indictments of russian nationals. more than a dozen are charged with conspiracy to tamper with the election process in an effort to undermine confidence in the u.s. democracy. there is no allegation in the indictment that anyone in trump campaign was knowingly involved. >> president trump was briefed on the matter friday afternoon. he was briefed on the matter. he ignored shouted questions from reporters. errol barnett is with the president in west palm beach.
7:04 am
good morning. >> good morning. the russia investigation was bolstered by deputy attorney general and rosenstein. president trump chose to comment on his personal vindication. >> the defendants allegedly conducted what they called information warfare against the united states. >> deputy attorney general rob rosenstein said they stole identities posing as politically active americans had a clear and consistent goals. >> the russian conspirators wanted to present discord in the united states and undermine confidence in democracy. >> it was begun in 2014 and was run out of this building in st. petersburg, russia. 13 russian nationals and three russian companies with a budget of more than $1.2 million per month made hundreds of fake social media profile, posting
7:05 am
attacks on hillary clinton while applauding bernie sanders and then candidate donald trump. christopher wray previously briefed president trump on this indictment. in a statement the white house said there was no collusion between the trump campaign and russia noting that the outcome of the election was not changed or affected. court documents allege the russian operatives were instructed to use any opportunity to criticize hillary clinton and the rest except sanders and trump. >> he repeatedly calls the special counsel's probe a hoax tweeting they did not wrong, no collusion. investigators believe the russian agenda was also aimed to suppress minority turnout. an instagram message from a fake group called woke black.
7:06 am
they said we'd truly be better off without voting at all but rosenstein emphasized this does not claim any american knowingly played a role in the operation. >> now, republican house speaker paul ryan said washington needs to follow the facts in the wake of these charges while democratic leaders like senator chuck schumer says this is more proof president trump needs to implement the sanctions against russia, approved by congress. anthony? >> errol barnett with the president in florida. thanks, errol. here to discuss more on the indictments is cbs news justice reporter paula reid. she's in our washington bureau. paula, good morning. >> good morning. >> what can you tell us. >> according to court documents he helped to fund the internet research agency that launched
7:07 am
these operations against the u.s. now the other defendants are accused of working for that agency to effectively operate as a troll farm. so these were people who spoke english well enough to be credible as they pumped out these messages on social media. we also know from the court documents some of these defendants traveled here to the united states to collect intelligence and then to launch actual events, rallies, and even some self-defense training. >> and prigozhin known as putin's chef was alleged to have been involved. where does that leave the investigation going forward, paula? >> this lays out a way to possibly charge folks here in the united states. the documents specifically say the russians worked with the americans here on the ground. so the question for robert mueller is whether or not any of
7:08 am
those americans actually knew who they were working with and what the russians were up to. if you knowingly work with the russians to sway votes or put on any of these events, you could be charged with conspiracy. >> paula, tell us who richard pineda was. he pled guilty to selling bank accounts to russians. >> that's right. according to court documents he helps provide services to people to get around those security features or those identification requirements for ebay or amazon. now, according to court documents he purchased stolen banking information before selling it to clients and while his lawyers say he had no knowledge in this specific instance of who he was working with or what they were up to, clearly selling other people's personal information is a crime. >> and we're learning about more charges this morning against paul manafort. what are they? >> new possible charges. new evidence was revealed in a
7:09 am
court filing late last night. they revealed they have evidence that paul manafort may have committed bank fraud in addition to all the charges he's already facing achlt cording to the court documents, he allegedly used doctored profit and loss statements, overstating how much money he was being paid as a consultant. this has been a consistent theme throughout the manafort prosecution. the reason he doesn't have an official bail agreement is the court can't figure out how much he's worth because when you look at all the documents he signed in the months leading up to his arrest, estimates varied so greatly. it's unclear whether or not special counsel would use evidence, but they have a lot of time. higgs trial is not expected to start until fall. >> it's stunning to think there are four trump associates who have been charge ordered mr. guilty as part of this investigation. paula reid, our thanks to you. fbi director christopher wray is under fire for higgs
7:10 am
agency's handling of suspected florida shooter nikolas cruz. the fbi revealed friday it did not investigate a warning that cruz may have been plotting an attack that killed 17 people. last night president trump visited with law enforcement officers who responded to wednesday's shooting. he was joined by florida governor rick scott who on friday called for wray to resign. but mr. trump did not discuss wray's future or the fbi. instead he praised the first responders. >> the president also visited a south florida hospital where some of the victims are being treated. he is spending the holiday weekend at his south florida resort which is about 40 miles from the parkland. man yell bojorquez has more. good morning. >> the fbi says it will investigate how that tip was
7:11 am
mishandled. 5 1/2 weeks before nikolas cruz allegedly gunned down 17 people, they say they received a tip about the suspect's gun ownership and desire to kill people and potential of shooting people. the tip did not get passed on to the miami field office for followup. now the attorney general wants a review and the florida governor is calling for wray to resign. >> what would you say to people who believe fbi missed a chance to prevent this tragedy? >> the potential of the fbi to miss something is always there. we will be looking into where and how if the protocol broke down and we'll come back stronger than we ever were before. >> reporter: it was the second time the fbi received a tip. another with a user's name.
7:12 am
it said i'm going to be a professional shoot e. the agency said it could not determine whether it came from. the fbi said cruz walked into a mcdonald's restaurant, appears to show his calm demeanor in the parking lot. broward county sheriff's records also revealed 20 calls for service during the past two years over disturbances over cruz and his broekt. he had been suffering mental illness and cutting his arm. in the past he said he would like to purchase a firearm. as the investigation unfolds the first funeral was held for 14-year-old alyssa alhadeff. >> i'm a father, i have kids, and this hit very close to home. >> three days after this happened you can see this.
7:13 am
the school where it happened will eventually be torn down. >> our hearts still ache for those families. thank you. white house chief of staff john kelly has ordered major changes in how the white house clears staff members to gain access to top secret information. that follows revelations that former staff secretary rob porter had an interim security clearance. despite allegations of domestic violence by his two engs wives. kelly acknowledge thad the administration must do better on how it handles security clearances. it also said the fbi and justice department need to provide more timely updates on background investigations. for more we tern to philip bump, national correspondent for the "washington post." good morning. >> good morning, sir. >> we heard paula reid talk about the 13 indictments. what are the political ramifications. >> it's a good question.
7:14 am
eat is hard to say in part because we should remember this is only one part of what the russians are expected to have done during the 2016 election. there was, of course, the hacking of the democratic national committee and john podesta for hillary clinton. that wasn't covered in the indictment that came out yesterday. so we don't yet have a full picture of what happened in 2016. this certainly does reveal that any assurances presented by president trump that this entire thing was a hoax, of course, are not the case. this is pretty clear evidence that something happened there, but we don't yet know what the long-term fallout is because we don't have -- while the president and republicans insist there was no collusion, we still don't know with certainty. there isn't evidence yet that there's a sort of collusion that people think may have happened but we don't have a full picture. >> and yet the president tweeted no collusion yesterday. does this make it that much more difficult for the president if he wanted to to fire bob mueller? >> yes. i mean it's not clear how
7:15 am
president trump is going to react to the revelations that came out yesterday. it's not clear what he wants to do with this moving forward. there are indications he feel this was a vindication to some extempt and he may, therefore, may not want to fire the special counsel in the way he may have two weeks ago. that said, again, we don't know what's going to come out. we still don't know. he's still supposed to speak with bob mueller's team at some point in time. they need to get information from him as well. but i think yesterday, the president sees yesterday as being vindicated that while it's not the whole picture, it suggests one picture provides evidence. >> what's interesting to philip is yet again we have an indictment or action by mueller which we had no forewarning about, no leaks on this whatsoever. >> right. it's remarkable. i mean this is washington, d.c. we get leaks on everything before breakfast. bob mueller's team -- bob
7:16 am
mueller is a former director of the fbi. he certainly knows how to work washington and i think that's been revealed. i think it's a testament to his team that we haven't had these sorts of leaks because it's suggesting they're keeping their heads down and pushing forward on their work. >> yet it's still stunning after we hear about these indictments against 13 russian nationals, the president chose not to implement the sanctions asked by congress. some people were reading into rob rosenstein going out and issuing the statement that he did yesterday, saying that it implies a warning not only for russia, but he's also reading to the presidentet. does that read too much into it? >> it's a good question and rod rosenstein is also a little inscrutable. i think there will be a lot of political pressure on president trump now that it has been demonstrated. his line all along is this russia thing is a hoax,
7:17 am
nothing's happened here. it's impossible for him to say at this point. even in his first tweet after it came out he acknowledged something happened. there will be pressure for him to take some action. fwu we've seen consistently his party hasn't tried to twist his arm on things like this. >> if i wanted to talk quickly about immigration, they failed to come up with a compromise for the dreamers. time's running out. is there still a chance here? >> there's always a chance. congress likes to wait until the 11th hour to do something. that said, there doesn't seem to be any sort of political will to get something done that will formalize the protection that the daca recipients currently enjoy. it doesn't seem to be the will on capitol hill that they'll do something. it's not clear that president trump will be able to corral them to get something done. this morning millions of people in mexico are on edge following friday's prolonged and powerful architect quake.
7:18 am
minor damage was reported to buildings in mexico city and in the southern city of oaxaca -- oaxaca, excuse me. power was knocked out. electric lights and wires can be seen shaking as the 7.2 quake struck. two people were killed when a helicopter carrying officials crashed. >> frightening images. could the face of america's olympic team win gold, and would the american men rebound after a disappointing start to the figure skating competition? dana jacobson is in pong chong, south korea, with the answers as the olympics start their second week. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. lindsey vonn's eight-year wait is over. it was not what she was hoping for. super-g, her competition since
7:19 am

7:38 am
cared out on social media, aimed at mainly helping then candidate donald trump, defeating hillary clinton. just this week director of national intelligence dan coats warned the senate intel jet committee that the u.s. is still under attack by russian hackers just as the 2018 elections season is gearing up. so what can we do with primary elections just a few weeks away? we're joined by frank cilluffo, director of the senn for for cyber and homeland security at the george washington university and michael waldman, president of the brennan center for justice at new york university school of law. welcome to you both. what does it tell you about the scope of mueller's investigation and how far the russians have gone? >> firstly if you read the indictment itself, it reads like a novel. it's fascinating in terms of the details it provides, but i think most importantly it underscores
7:39 am
that the scale and scope is significant here. this isn't a onesy and twosies operation. it's about equal what campaigns themselves were spending and a lot of people, 80 full-time employees devoted to this. so this wasn't a small operation. it was a major russian intelligence operation. and what they refer to as an information warfare campaign aimed at the united states, aimed at not only the elections but the democracies themselves. >> michael, last year the federal government designated the election system as critical infrastructure, but a lot of that infrastructure is outdated. just how vulnerable are we? >> you're exactly right. we have in many respect as ramshackle election system run by counties and states all over. much of the equipment is old, many of the systems are old, and not really ready to withstand a sustain and focused attack like this. we now know how vulnerable we
7:40 am
are. the question i think patriotic responses should not be to say, i didn't do it, but what can we do to make sure it doesn't happen again. >> frank, doesn't it really start with the president acknowledging it? even h.r. mcmaster said it's beyond dispute that russia meddled in our elections. we're still playing catchup. we're months away from the midterms. they got detailed information about the u.s. voters and the voting system. what can the president do now? >> i mean all of the president's national security leadership has underscored the same thing. i mean when they went around, all the intelligence heads at the senate intelligence hearing this past week, they all said yes, yes, yes, and yes. i think clearly this is -- this is more evidence in terms of details as to what, in fact, occurred. and, yes, i think the fact that russia meddled with our
7:41 am
elections, we've known that for quite some time but you're starting to see the political ramifications come into play. general mcmaster, but it's not only general mcmaster. it's the entire intelligence community. >> back to this question of vulnerability, michael, the center for american progress gave a report card to all the states on sort of their election preparedne preparedness, security preparedness, and not one state got an "a." what can we do? what should we be doing at this point? >> first of all, states need to buy new vote machines. they're out of date. they're using windows 2000. you can't get security patches for these old systems. so there's new vote machines and steps to harden and strengthen the computerized databases of voter registration files. these are things that can be done. that i require money and they require will, and unfortunately states need to help and congress hasn't even moved at all so far on bringing that kind of help to
7:42 am
these elections. >> and, frank, what we heard from rod rosenstein, the intent was to show discord in our electoral system. now the focus is on republicans and russians helping donald trump. but that's not necessarily the case going forwarding correct. >> exactly. if you look back, the technology changes, human nature remains consistent. what we've seen play out with the meddling of the elections we've actually seen in the physical world for years. it was selling dysinformation, cyberive measures. so active measure campaigns go back to years. there was a rumor for years that cia was behind cha. this was a physical example. here you're starting to see how technoloy can expand that reach exponentially. but it's ultimately about driving wedges, selling distrust
7:43 am
and having us point fingers at one another. putin must be sitting there laughing. >> do you think the indictments scare up the russians in any way? >> i think they know people are watching, but so far they haven't seen many consequences. they're not going to in all likelihood be extradited. the consequences that would come would be when we were attacked after 9/11 or pearl harbor, we strengthen our defenses so it doesn't happen again. bipartisan, that would help with this. people need to take it really seriously. we can't have elections if people don't trust the integrity and accuracy of the elections, and that's what we're facing right now. >> and the sanctions that were passed by the bipartisan fashion were also. we'll see if the president will do something now. thank you so much, gentlemen. >> thank you. well, the quest for a cure for a devastating illness. up next in our morning rounds, medical news. we geel inside the world wide

this morning a special edition of our "morning rounds," medical news. alzheimer's disease is a growing health crisis. more than 5 million americans are estimated to have it and that number could top it, 15 million by 2050. >> british neuroscientist joseph jebelli has studied alzheimer's's throughout his career. welcome. >> thank you. >> what motivated you to go on this very personal journey. >> i first became interested when i saw it in my grandfather.
7:48 am
when i was a teenager, he was going through it. i wanted answers. what is this disease, what is happening to him and how can we stop it. that's how i sort of became interested in the field. i then decided to write the book because i wanted to give the public an accessful account of where we are in the research, what the history of the research is and how we got to where we are and ultimately where we are. >> by 2050 it's going to overtake cancer as the leading cause of death. what is the difference between alzheimer's and dementia? >> sure. so dementia just describes a set of symptoms that you see of a patient. memory loss, navigational loss, confusion, problems in general, i thinking abilities. a good way to think of it, it's like saying if you say someone has dementia, it oohs like saying they have cancer without identifying what type of cancer.
7:49 am
alzheimer's is a type of dementia. >> how much has the attitude toward the disease change oefrd the years? >> massively. as i documented in the book we've gone from fair and indifferent to understanding and hope. when it was described in 1986 he was essentially ignored by his peers because at the time the idea of linking a biological manifestation in the brain to a behavioral manifestation, it was alien. it's fairly common now. it's taken a long time to wake up to this problem. it was rediscovered by amazing scientists. since then we've sort of had a reawakening of what alzheimer's is and understands that it's a disease process and something we yield to science and reason in the same way cancer will. >> when you talk about early warning signs, you gave examples of somebody misplacing their
7:50 am
keys and being alarmed. you say that's not what should alarm you. what should alarm you is if you don't remember what keys are for. >> forgetting where your car keys are and glasses are is normal. everybody does that. you weren't paying attentioning you're tired. it's when you find them and think, what are these for, and confusion sets in. that's something more sinister and you should consider seeing a doctor about. >> and loss of mobility is an early sign too. >> lot of navigation. that's actually one of the first signs maybe before memory signs itself. loss of navigation, getting lost. >> you've talked about how we've moved from fear toward hope. how close are we to a break point? >> sure. it's one i can describe to you because i'm a natural optimist, between 10 to 20 years that we'll have an effective treatment. what we really need do is push the illness back. the cure for alzheimer's is not

what many people think. it will be a treatment that pushes it back. if we can push it back by a year, there will be 9 million cases by 2030. if we push it back half, that would be half of those affected by alzheimer's disease. we need to push it back, change the course of the disease itself so a victim never has to experience any of the symptoms of the disease. >> and by pushing it back, you mean they will succumb to something else other than alzheimer's. >> yes. die naturally of old age. won't have to go through this devastating process, you know, in their final years. >> what are we talking about? a vaccine? a cure? a treatment? will this be a chronic treatment the way we treat diabetes? >> yes. it's seeming more and more now it's a treatment that will have to be given very early. it's a disease process that evolves over decades at a time. it starts 10 or 20 years before you see any symptoms. so doctors are looking for these very early telltale signs like
7:52 am
spinal fluid, the blood, maybe the eye. spot it in middle age and give the patient something at that point to divert the disease entirely. >> quickly. you went to iceland, colombia, and india to research this. what did you learn there? >> i did travel far and wide. i learned as a natural scientisting you should leave no stone unturned. who would have thought there were people in iceland who are protected from it. who would have thought there are groups of columbia who have early on set alzheimer's who are helping shed light on the course of alzheimer's. so we really do need to widen the net in search of a cure because this is a much more complicated disease than we previously thought. so i think as a scientist these what we took away from it. >> the fight against alzheimer's. thanks for being with us. he's 43 years old and never skied until last year and he's

8:02 am
election. rosenstein made sure to note this in dietment does not include any knowing american participant, describing them instead as unwitting. that detail is what president trump focused on in his first response to the charges, saying on twitter, the trump campaign did nothing wrong, no collusion. later the white house released a similar statement with no collusion in all capital letters, adding, quote, we must unite as americans to protect the integrity of our democracy and our elections. and indeed intelligence officials warn russians will try to interfere in midterm elections later this year and they're calling for a national security strategy to koub ter such influence campaigns. bianna? >> errol barnett, our thanks to you with the president trump in florida. the fbi is facing new information this week. florida governor rick scott is leading that criticism calling

8:12 am
>> reporter: but long track speed skater erin jackson did make this year's olympic team, shaving nearly a full skoonld off her personal best to qualify in the 500 meters, even though she had only been skating on ice for about four months. take me through that moment when you realized you were actually going to the olympics. >> i kchbt even pinpoint the individual things i was feeling. it was just a whole bunch of everything, like shock, disbelief, and what? i still sometimes just don't believe it. i don't understand how it could have lapped. i mean i know i put in a lot of work, but i isn't the didn't see it coming. >> reporter: a heavily decorated inline speed skater, laying claim to world championship golds, jackson has been on wheels since she was a kid. >> i grew up like what you call a ring rat, just hanging out on the skating rinks with my friends. you go and skate to musical. just hang out. then i became a roller figure
8:13 am
skater called artistic skating. i did that for a ku couple of years and then moved to inline skating. >> what was it you loved about being on wheels? >> i just loved to go fast. i was always the kid just zipping around the skating rink. >> reporter: and when zipping around as a member of the u.s. inline speed skating team wasn't enough, she gave roller derby a sp spin. >> one day i went to a practice and gave it a shot and realized it's really not as dangerous as people think and it's a fun sport. >> reporter: jackson quickly earned a spot on the u.s. squad. her second national roller team, but the move to ice was a bit trickier. >> it was a little nerve-racking because i didn't know what i was doing. it was a little rough. >> reporter: despite the shaky first outing, jackson would soon get her footing. it started this past september. what was the most challenging
8:14 am
about it? >> the techniques are pretty different. i skate on top. but with ice you have to dig in and find your pressure and things like that. it with us pretty frustrating at first because i consider myself a good skater coming from inline, but then i wasn't a good ice skater, so that was really motivating to go out there and just go to as many training sessions as i could, doing like three practices a day, things like that, really trying to figure it out. >> reporter: bonnie blair is a five-time olympic speed skating gold medalist. >> a lot of our feeder system o or skater we have gotten recently has come from the sport of inlining. a lot of the similarities from being on rollers for sure carry on over the ice, but it's still different. >> reporter: she says jackson still has to work on her technique, but her history in inline skating does matter. >> her competitive she brought from inlining is certainly going
8:15 am
be a big help for her when she steps on the lines at the olymp olympics. she aren't didn't expect to be here. i think she needs to soak it all in, keep challenge that clock, keep trying to hone in on the technical aspects of being on blades versus the in-lines and just see where it goes and enjoy the moment. >> reporter: a historic moment as jackson is the first african-american woman to compete for the u.s. in long track speed skating. she's been hailed as one of the most diverse in winter olympic team with 10 african-americans, 11 asian americans, and two openly gay athletes. >> it's cool to be there and who african-american kids can look to and see in the games and saying okay, there's someone like me out there, i can give this a shot too. >> reporter: a moment of pride erin jackson is sharing with her father. >> the main thing that he mentions every time we get on the phone is just how everyone
8:16 am
at work is always talking about it, how everyone's so proud. >> reporter: thanks to jackson's own online t-shirt sales to raise travel funds and last-minute sponsorship, he dad will be by her side at the olympics. dad was her first phone call when she made the team. >> well, when he first answered the phone, he's like normally a really quiet guy. he doesn't get excited. i don't remember the exact words but it was like, oh, so you went pretty fast, huh? >> reporter: that's actually jackson's main goal at the olympics, five months after starting her speed skating career. >> going into the games what is the expectation you have for yourself? >> just that, just to go faster. if i keep getting personal best, that's pretty much what i'm looking for. >> not even thinking medal? >> a medal would be awesome. i came into the trials looking, hoping for p. bchb.s, and look
8:17 am
happened. >> jackson told me she'll aware you only get one first olympics and that one cool piece of advice the vets had given her for the opening ceremony, to get up front so she could get on tv a lot. >> i love her story. i love that she was in roller derby and something called roller figure skating which i didn't know existed. a real rink rat. >> and i love that dad's going to be there cheering her on. we're all cheering her the best. while the olympics continue, we'll look at the rise of another form of competition. esports. organized teams of video game players playing in front of thousands and winning millions. see why it may even become an olympic event. that's ahead. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." to me he's, well, dad. so when his joint pain from psoriatic arthritis got really bad, it scared me. and what could that pain mean?

potatoes with pepper and light. spiesd roasted carrots, roasted chicken. my three is if you're roasting one chicken, roast two so you have leftovers. this is a little riff on a dish i used to make in spain. spinach with raisins. this is like a kale salad with sun sweet prunes in there as well. i'm giving the sweetness from the same touch you get from raisins and a little parfait with granola and yogurt and fresh fruit. >> and all of it is healthy as well and i want to get to the health side of it in just a minute. but talk about going from vermont and being raised on a farm to your experience in spain and combining it. >> it seems like kind of a leap. >> yeah. >> i grew up on a farm, had wonderful food as a kid growing u and then when i went into the public school system, not so much. and then i -- but i was always in love with food. i always loved cooking. i wasn't a terrifically good
8:38 am
student. i was in high school. i had two choices. i was going to drop out of high school or something was going to change. i had a good spanish teacher who got me to thinking about being an exchange student and i had a host and that started my love affair with spain. >> it started out with your family. your father was editor of "sun set" magazine for 40 years? >> yeah, editor in chief for 40 years. so i was around a lot of good food not only on the farm but through the magazine as well. i grew up in vermont and my grandparents were in california and i would spend a lot of time with them. both of my grandmothers were tremendous cooks and my grandfather was a gourmand as well. i was around a lot of good food all the time and going to spain was an eye-opening experience, foods i had never had before. it changed my thoughts about food and in many ways set my mood. >> i went to spain this summer

and fell in love with the food as well. >> it's an amazing place. >> incredible. talk about your own health experience. you had a real setback with rheumatoid arthritis. >> mm-hmm. >> you for a moment thought you couldn't continue your career. >> yeah. i didn't think i was going to be able to ever exercise again, be an active person at all. the idea is taking care of other people but we're not so good at taking care of ourselves. after many years of working in the kitchen, not eating well, not caring for myself, my health started to deteriorate. i didn't see a correlation between the choices i was making on a day-to-day basis and the disease i had been diagnosed with, but i was eventually introduced to a really wonderful doctor who helped me put the pieces of the puzzle together. working with him i was able to create plan that change and shaped my health. i was amazed once i realized i wasn't a victim, there were things i could do to change the

course of my health it was incredibly empowering and food became this amazing tool. >> you changed your approach to food. >> it changed entirely. it changed the way i thought about my own role in health. i realized i could be an active participant in my well being, so it really gave me a new lease on life. >> i remember hearing you say it's important to know what e eat/ate. if you were to share a meal with anybody past or present, who would that be? >> oh, my gosh. i would have to say it would be my fraternal grandfather francis mullen. i never got to meet him. he passed away in 1983. he was very kind, captivated my grandmother and she was an amazing woman. he's someone i would have been proud to have met. >> you're a big fan of tumeric.
