"the daily beast" wouldn't says
eye ivanka trump used sexism. this came out in 1993 in a biography at that time. she said then her words should not be interpreted in a criminal or literal sense. trump denies this allegation. a trump spokesperson says this morning the event is all news and it never happened. the trump's lawyer told the daily beast tim mak by the very definition you can't rape your spouse. the lawyer also allegedly threatened the reporter so we will ask tim mak about this story and alleged threats who will be joining us ahead on "cbs this morning." this morning, dry, tender and hospital temperatures are feeding fast moving wildfires in the west and more than 4,000 firefighters are on the front lines and battling six fires in northern california alone and they include the willow fire and john blackstone is near that fire. john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, when daylight arrives here in the west, helicopters will
again, come here to pick up water to drop on this fire. but bass lake also shows the impact of the drought. the docks here are on dry land. a hundred yards from where the shore is now. fire crews are lucky there's still some water left to fight this fire. in this dense forest large flames moved quickly up the hillside. as firefighters work to set containment lines, those who live nearby are preparing to leave at a moment's notice. >> this area has a potential for the fire to go really big. >> reporter: to save the hundreds of homes in danger crews are using lake water to douse the fire from helicopters and tankers flying above. morgan burns lives nearby and his brother-in-law is fighting the fire on the ground. what do you think when you stand here and you look at this column of smoke? >> terrifying when it's in your backyard. >> reporter: crews are using a similar strategy at the lowell fire further north. >> going to hit aircraft and
ground crews and we want to get that line around it. we have the increased temperatures coming and lower humidity so we want to get ahead of this thing. >> reporter: it's been an active fire season here in california. fire officials say crews have responded to about 1,100 more fires than last year at this time. but have been more effective containing them and cutting down the acreage burned by about a quarter. >> with conditions so dry we are hitting it with everything we have. >> reporter: while some locals are sent packing, at least one is more concerned with this. more a hundred of them. >> yeah, it's my boy. >> reporter: instead of evacuating these animals, lisa corralled the herd into a pen away from the brush that could easley catch fire. >> they don't like change. they like things calm quiet. >> reporter: the willow fire has burned over 1,500 acres here. right now only about 5% contained. temperatures today are expected
to rise into the 90s adding to the already severely dry conditions here. charlie? >> thanks. stock markets in china this morning are way down again. the decline followed monday's free-fall on the shanghai stock change and one-day drop of more than % was the biggest since 2007. concerns about china monday helped push down wall street on monday. mellody hobson is in chicago with more. good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: what is going on? >> what is not going on. everyone is saying why is this happening? i'm surprised it hasn't been happening. the chinese stock market has been a speculative bubble for sometime now. we went from the real estate bubble there to the stock market bubble. and it really is a time that this bubble was to burst. it was set to burst for quite a while. some say it was because of corporate profits. others say it's because the government hasn't been propping it up. no matter what this was a
bubble that was poised to burst. >> can the government stabilize it? >> they are injecting 8.5 billion dollars in the smarkt and relaxing rules around financing and telling snedsersinsiders if you own stock in a company, you can't sell and they will punish anyone what that is ma maliciously trying to be a short teller right now. >> what does it mean for the u.s.? >> i don't think it means very much. notwithstanding the fact that china is the world's largest economy now, but the bigger issue is the u.s. economy is growing at a slow albeit steady pace. corporate america is in great shape. and our stock market has been on a very strong run and it let off a little steam. we saw it at the interest rates going up but, more or less, corporate america is doing really well. >> i guess i find it interesting is that beijing's effort to stabilize their stock market is not working.
>> at the end of the day, the one thing about beijing, they do a lot to manipulate. you never know what is going on because the government has such a strong hand in everything. at the end of the day, stocks trade based upon fundamentals. and that is what we will have to see, what are the fundamentals of those chinese businesses? >> if you have an economy as big as china's, will not a slow then not economy, and the lessening of command for worldwide products affect a lot of other economies who are connected? >> and that is the big question. that is what everyone has their eye on what is going on in china. but, again, what is the real growth number? we hear it's 7%. you don't ever really know. we will know in terms of how it does show up in terms of demand and everyone is watching that very very carefully. >> mellody hobson thank you, joining us from chicago morning. president obama is wrapping up a five-day visit to africa. the president is expected to
praise african leaders in a speech today. major garrett is traveling with president obama there. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the president is in the middle of his speech to the african union. the first u.s. president to address that 54-nation organization based here. the president said africa is on the brink of economic breakthroughs but only if african leaders wean themselves from the elicit profits of corruption. he also said democracy and the rule of law must find a place in africa and he addressed the ongoing battle against terrorism here saying millions of africans know that limbaugh is a religion of peace but it's time to call al qaeda and isis and al shabab what they are, murderers. this is a state visit to ethiopia. last night before the state dinner held in his honor, the president inspected the ancient remains of lucy a partial home and skeleton found in ethiopia

allows the coast guard to strictly focus on a specific area now. >> reporter: this coast guard video shows the 19 boat belonging to the teens nearly 70 nautical miles out at sea. >> just to confirm nobody is on board. trying to find any other gear. >> reporter: divers seen in the water confirmed the boat's registration number ux. one life jacket was found floating near the overturned vessel but it's unclear if more were aboard. >> our contentions are to continue to search aggressively. >> reporter: the 14-year-old boys were last seen at this marina fueling station heading toward the open ocean. a friend received a snap chat were leaving. 36 search missions over ruffle 28 square nautical miles have been executed so far led by the coast guard annow aided by the u.s. navy. crews are currently focusing even further north from where the boat was discovered sunday
morning, slowly drifting along the gulf stream. >> each search pattern is calculated specifically on where we think the boat and now the boys may be. >> reporter: the coast guard says white caps on the water makes spotting the boys tougher but one thing that is working in their favor is that this time of year, water temperatures hover in the mid-80s. norah. >> vicente, thank you so much. >> reporter: the mormon church is hinting it may leave the boy scouts of america. the organization voted monday to end its ban on gay adult scout leaders and employees. it will still allow church sponsored scout groups to turn away leaders for religious leaders. it says it is deeply troubled by the change and re-evaluating its century long association with scouting. mormons sponsor more scout troops than any other groups. plans in place for the new major airport since the september 11th attacks. laguardia will be rebuilt.

discovery near the florida coast. they show us their process of digging up sand and history. "the new york times" reports on the national background check system for gun buyers. "the times" says it is riddled with problems and has major gaps. for example, dylann roof who was charged in the charleston church shooting should not have been able to buy the gun he did but he got one because of a clerical area. john houser was able to buy the gun he used because his stay in a mental hospital was not defined as involuntary. the herald tribune reports on a sar sew take police officer apparently tossing peanuts to an inmate. thisid veo showing officer andrew halpern throwing these peanuts to a homeless man who is handcuffed and the man is said to be intoxicated and he gets on the floor and using his mouth to get the food. the officer has been put on administrative leave. a passenger on a bus

rape. 'didn't mean it in a criminal sense. according to mak, trump's lawyer responded you cannot rape your spouse and very clear case law. 1993, marital rape was illegal in all 50 states to be clear. mak says the lawyer also made threats and insulted him. the senior congressional correspondent for "the daily beast" is with us from washington. good morning. >> good morning. >> why did you decide to look into these allegations? >> i think it was important to look into, especially since donald trump launched his presidential campaign, making insults about mexico immigrants saying that they were quote, rapists. so it was a little bit relevant to look into his past and see exactly what might have been said about him on that topic in his personal life. >> how did mr. trump's lawyer respond when you asked these questions? >> i think it started off a little bit -- they were trying to say the allegation was not made in a criminal sense like you mentioned.
then it ended in insults and threats and threats of lawsuits and telling me to tread lightly and to say whatever lawsuit that they might file against me would be disgusting. it evolved pretty quickly. >> at what point did it take a turn? tim, you reached out to the campaign and you heard back from a lawyer. did that surprise you? >> yeah, that surprised me a lot. i've dealt with a lot of campaigns. very rarely does it get this acrimonious and so quickly. i've never reached out to a campaign looking for a story and heard back from the lawyer. >> cbs reached trump's lawyer for a comments and have not heard back. a source said nobody speaks for mr. trump but mr. trump. do they have a point? should trump be held accountable for people who may or may not spoke for him? >> i think trump should be held accountable for this allegation. he should be asked pretty directly what he thinks of it and how he would like to
respond. i think also that trump's lawyer has represented him on a number of occasions in front of the news media, so it's very obvious that trump has had no problem with michael cohen, his special counsel, speaking on his behalf in the past. >> missouri senator claire mccaskill tweeted most shocking part of it trump's lawyer think it's okay to rape your spouse. how do you think this gets played out in the campaign? >> the it's very interesting. their response to an allegation made in the '90s about an incident described as rape was that hey this is not criminal not least because it's not illegal to rape your spouse. there is no such thing. that has not been true in the state of new york for 30 years. over 30 years. very strange. especially coming from someone who is supposed to be knowledgeable about legal affairs is your lawyer. >> when confronted, donald trump
and his mo in the past seem to attack back. how concerned are you about it coming your way? >> i think trump needs to be held accountable and asked direct questions. i'm not at all concerned what might be coming my way. i think he should be asked a few hard questions whether he agrees with his lawyer's interpretation of law which is wrong, that spousal rape exists and it's not illegal. >> tim mac, thank you very much. >> thank you. this morning, we have a fascinating look inside the business of treasure hunting. a family found $1 million in gold and other artifacts off the florida coast. the treasure is from a fleet of ships that sank 300 years ago this week. vladimir shows us the historic find. vaed, good morning. >> good morning. the schmitts family says gps technology helped them track the area they evacuate under the water but it took hard work to
