7:03 am
places. welcome to "cbs this morning." the nation's fourth largest city is struggling with deadly widespread flooding triggered by historical rainfall. more water rescues are under way in houston this morning, even as flood waters recede. >> five people died yesterday in southeast texas. nearly a foot and a half of rain reportedly fell just west of houston. more wet weather is in the forecast. texas and nearby states face possible flash flooding through thursday. omar villafranca is in houston where people are rushing to escape water. >> reporter: good morning. some scary moments in northwest houston when rescue crews had to use boats to get residents out of an apartment complex. you can see some of the residents are here. they were able to grab basically just a few thing, some clothes they could wear today, rescue a few pets. this is also runoff from
7:04 am
yesterday's record rainfall. the amount of rain, historic. the rescue attempts, dramatic. streets became waterways, littered with people holding only what they could carry in their arms, and entire neighborhoods swallowed by rising waters. >> we panicked. we have a 2-week-old. the water keeps rising. it was unsafe for him. it's terrifying, especially if you can't swim. >> reporter: first responders worked around the clock, in boats and even jet skis, saving children and seniors and pets. >> bruing him through. >> reporter: rescuers dove into neck-high water to save livestock from drowning. people escaped to safety any way they could. on air mattresses, in empty container bins, even inside refrigerators. texas governor greg abbott. >> please remember the easy phrase turn around, don
7:05 am
>> ever seen anything like this before? >> last time it got like this in this area was allison. the water line came up to here. >> you had about a foot of water. >> about a foot, yeah. >> reporter: this is the largest flood event to hit the houston area since tropical storm allison in 2001, where 23 were killed in texas alone. engineer sanita singh drowned while flood waters overtook her car. her husband says his heart is broken. >> cancer, a heart problem, i understand. but this? there's nothing that could be done. it's a terrible loss for me, for everybody. >> reporter: many schools in the houston area are closed today as cleanup gets under way, but there is more rain in the forecast. gayle? >> that's the last thing they need. thank you very much, omar. >> we have breaking news from afghanistan, where dozens of people were killed in a taliban
7:06 am
agency. it began with a suicide car bombing this morning outside the agency's compound in kabul. gunmen then stormed in and started shooting. security forces fought them off, leaving at least 28 dead and more than 300 others wounded. president obama today begins a week-long trip to saudi arabia, britain, and germany. at his first stop, he'll talk with saudi leaders facing trouble at home and abroad. he'll also meet with leaders of six persian gulf countries to discuss the fight against isis. the president talked with us about his foreign policy monday at the white house. we sat down after officials announced another 200 american troops will be sent to iraq. they will help local forces troo i to recapture a key city from isis. >> this is a long, hard fight, as i just said last week, but what we've seen is they've lost territory. as we see, the iraqis willing to fight and gaining ground, let's make sure we're providing them more support. we're not doing the
7:07 am
ourselves. but when we bprovide training, when we're gaining intelligence working with the coalitions we have, what we've seen is that we can continually tighten the noose. my expectation is that by the end of the year, we will have created the conditions whereby mosul will eventually fall. >> when you arrived in office, i think one of the early things you said to the cia director is, i want to get osama bin laden, and you did. i assume you feel the same way about baghdadi. >> i feel the same way about the entire isil leadership structure, which is as wicked and as destructive as any group of individuals on this planet. >> and do you think you'll be able to get baghdadi by the end of your term? >> my goal is to make sure that we're doing things right and we've got a plan and we execute. you take bin laden as an example. i would have liked to have gotten him the first year, but you don't have that luxury as president.
7:08 am
is to put and train all the pieces, intelligence, military, diplomatic, and you just keep on grinding it out. >> let me turn to something that's been in the news recently, which is the 28 pages of the 9/11 report. have you read it? >> you know, i have a sense of what's in there, but this has been a process which we generally deal with through the intelligence community and jim clapper, our director of national intelligence, has been going through to make sure that whatever it is that is released is not going to compromise some major national security interest in the united states. there are just reams of intelligence coming through constantly. some of them are raw and not tested. some of them are
7:09 am
>> and some of that may be in the 28 pages. >> some of that may be in the 28 pages and i don't know. the point is, it's important for there to be an orderly process where we evaluate this because what can end up happening is if you just dump a whole bunch of stuff out there that nobody knows exactly how credible it is, was it verified or not, they could end up creating problems. >> but the point is, it's been a long time. >> yeah, it is. >> a long time. >> that i can acknowledge. hopefully this process will come to a head fairly soon. >> and what about this legislation in the congress that will allow families to sue the saudi government? and other governments in similar circumstances. >> this is not just a bilateral u.s.-saudi issue. this is a matter of how generally the united states approaches our interactions with other countries. if we open up the possibility that
7:10 am
states can routinely start suing other governments, then we are also opening up the united states to being continually sued by individuals in other countries. >> really interesting as the president is embarking on a trip to saudi arabia today. >> yes, and the interesting thing, talking about the 28 pages, you get a sense, there's so much talk about it, that something is going to happen soon in terms of releasing that. there's a lot of stuff in there that may not be incriminating, as some suspect, but a lot of stuff because they did a lot of investigations at that time. it has been a long time. >> why now? >> couldn't they have done this earlier? in our next hour, the president talks about russian president putin. you can watch the entire conversation tonight on my pbs program. the polls are open right now in new york's crucial presidential primary. hillary clinton and donald trump want top wi widen the gap betwe
7:11 am
trump is expected to win most of the 95 republican delegates. we begin with major in the republican race. he's at a central synagogue in midtown manhattan. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. light turnout so far, where donald trump is expected to arrive and cast a ballot for himself in the next couple hours. big question as you indicated, how many of new york's 95 delegates will trump win tonight? his top strategists believe he'll win most. by that, they mean a range of anywhere from 88 to 92. that will propel trump toward five primaries next week and keep alive his hopes to claim the republican nomination outright. >> we're going to start winning, winning, winning. >> reporter: it's been almost a month since donald trump a won primary, but with a new york victory in sight, he's starting to talk like a presumptive nominee. >> we're going to do it on the first ballot. we're going to get to that
7:12 am
1237. >> reporter: trump expects to do well in five states voting next week, and he's well positioned to win a solid share of the 172 delegates awarded or influenced by the primary outcomes. >> no new yorker can vote for ted cruz, and no new yorker can vote for kasich. >> reporter: despite trump's bravado, kasich said trump's complaints about gop rules prove he has doubts. >> we're going to go to an open convention. they're beginning to realize that. they don't like the idea of an open convention. >> reporter: and trump tried even harder than ever to celebrate 9/11 heroism, but the effort fell short. >> i was down there, and i watched our police and our firemen down on 7/11, down at the world trade center right after it came down. >> reporter: trump also suggested he had a personal hand in cleaning up after the attacks. >> everyone who helped clear the rubble, and i was there and i watched and i helped a little
7:13 am
those people were amazing. >> reporter: we asked trump's campaign what he meant by saying he helped out a little bit at ground zero, but gayle, we never heard back. >> all right. there's still time. thank you very much, major. hillary clinton is down playing talk of a big victory but appeared confident yesterday. "the new york post" headline says the former senator is feeling the bern, shows her sweating a little bit, as her brooklyn born challenger tries to pull off another upset win. nancy is at clinton's polling place in new york. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. behind me is the elementary school where clinton herself cast her own ballot the two times she ran for senate. she's feeling so good about her homefield advantage that in a slip of the tongue late yesterday, she said that she's hoping that she can wrap up the nomination today. now, mathematically, that is not quite possible, though a win in this delegate-rich state certainly would help. she quickly amended herself to
7:14 am
for granted. and she can't because bernie sanders is the one who has been drawing massive crowds here in new york. 15,000 here, 25,000 there, and he has shown he c close the gap before. he was ten points back in michigan, for example, just as he is here, and he ended up with a narrow win. the big difference here in new york is that clinton has virtually the entire new york power structure on her side. she's been campaigning with both new york senators, with new york city's mayor, with the new york governor, and sanders admitted to me yesterday, that this is going to be a tough race for him. he said don't count him out, but it's going to be tough. and the bigger challenge looming for him is that there are five more northeastern states that are voting next week. according to almost all of the polling that's been done, he's trailing in most of them. >> all right. nancy, thank you so much. managing editor of bloomberg politics is here. good morning. you just heard nancy report that, the senator sayin
7:15 am
yesterday she hopes to wrap up this no, ma'mination today. could it be closer than expected? >> it could be closer than expected. bernie sanders has, in most of these states where he's spent a lot of time on the ground and an the air with advertising, has tended to close the gap. if you look at the public polling and the private polling, it seems like she's going to win handily, whether that's in the high single digits, maybe low double digits. you never know what can happen on primary day. >> suppose she wins. how quickly can she wrap it up, as they say? >> well, the question is the definition of wrap it up. she wins a big victory here -- if she wins on a scale we think she's going to win, she'll add a few extra delegates. if he were to win by a narrow margin, big, huge upset, he wouldn't gain much in terms of delegates. she's still ahead 200 pledge delegates roughly speaking. but he's got the money and inclination to keep going. she's going to have to fight through every primary andcu
7:16 am
she won't wrap this up probably until the convention because she's going to need super delegates probably, almost certainly, to be the nominee. but every contest where sanders does not close the gap by an appreciable amount is another contest in which he, in fact, is falling behind in terms of what he actually has to do. the math gets harder and harder for him every time he either doesn't win a state 60/40 or he loses, as he might today. >> let's look at the republicans. if all goes according to plan, donald trump is going to win huge here in new york, according to him. >> i like how you say that. >> now you can't say the word any other way. every time i hear it in my head, i hear bernie sanders' voice. how is he doing when it comes to the delegates? he doesn't seem to be holding up as well as ted cruz when it comes to garnering the delegates. >> ted cruz is playing the inside game really well. donald trump seems to have found his footing again in his home state. he's likely to win all of most of the delegates here. as your segments earlier
7:17 am
suggested, he's got a good calendar down the line. if he continues to win big, there's a chance he could end up getting the 1237 delegates and actually get this nomination before the cleveland convention. that is his goal. >> john, thank you so much. >> trump is complaining about it being rigged because he knows it's going to be an open convention. you buy that? >> could be. >> okay. >> thank you, john. rescuers from around the world are traveling to ecuador to help search for victims of the country's devastating earthquake. the death toll of at least 413 people is expected to rise. one american is among the dead. more than 2600 people are hurt, and up to 100,000 may need aid. >> reporter: norah, good morning. so many people are sleeping outside this morning. families, mothers and fathers, kids. they have nowhere else to go. their homes have been destroyed. this morning as they sleep outside, now that we see the sun, search and rescue is resu

it is tuesday, april 19th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including more of charlie's interview with president obama. what the president said to russia's leader during a phone call yesterday. but first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> scary moments in northwest houston, when rescuers are to use boats to get restsiden out of. >> you get a sense there's so much talk about it, that something is going to happen so. >> big question, how many of new york's 95 delegates will trump win tonight? his top strategists believe he'll win most. >> she's feeling so good about her homefield advantage that in a slip of the tongue, she said
8:01 am
nomination today. >> it seems likehe s's going to win handily, whether that's in the high single digits, maybe the low double digits. but you never know what can happen on primary day. >> they're still finding people alive buried underneath rubble. >> criminals steal debit card numbers by affixing an illegal card reading device to an atm. hidden cameras record your p.i.n. number when you enter it on the key pad, and it's done. >> there were no recordset s yesterday here on marathon monday, but there were a number of shared milestones. >> did you see the video that johnny depp and his wife amber heard made to placate the australian government? >> australia is a wonderful island with a treasure-trove of unique plants, animals, and people. >> it has to be protected. >> from the heart, totally convincing apology, until you zoom the picture out.
8:02 am
>> it's funny. >> a lot of people were talking about that apology, that it looked a little odd. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. texas faces new flood risks on top of the misery delivered by yesterday's historic rainfall. "the houston chronicle's" headline says "in a flash" in reference to the waters that killed five people. >> there were more than 1200 water rescues in texas, and it continues this morning. some floated to safety in empty rubbermaid container bins or air mattresses, and even inside refrigerators. flood watches have been issued today from texas to louisiana and all the way up to missouri. new yorkers are vote toing today in the state's important primary contest. they'll decide 342 republican and democratic delegates. moments ago, hillary clinton and bill clinton cast their votes. hillary clinton and donald trump are favored in their home state. in
8:03 am
again criticized the gop nominating process, but trump is confident he will win the nomination outright. >> please, please, we don't want any more business, we're doing too much business. we're making too much money. no matter what you do, we don't want to win anymore. i'm going to say, sorry, we're going to keep winning. we're going to win, win, win, and we're going to make america great again. america first, folks. america first. >> 95 republican delegates are at stake in new york. anything above 90 would be a big night for trump. it could also be a springboard for next tuesday's primaries where 172 delegates are at stake. there are calls this morning to restart syrian peace talks. new video shows what activists say are air strikes by syria's government. it is new evidence that a cease-fire brokered by the
8:04 am
crumbling. the opposition's leaders said they cannot negotiate while people are suffering and syria's president stays in power. president obama and russian president vladimir putin spoke on the phone yesterday about the crisis. we interviewed the president at the white house just after he talked with putin. >> is there a coming together in terms of ideas about peace and a cease-fire and who can do what to make syria a better place? >> my call today to him was to indicate that we're starting to see it fray more rapidly. and if the united states and russia are not in sync about maintaining it and getting a political track and transition moving, then we could be back in a situation we were in three, four weeks ago. and that would serve neither of our interests. but i think they're also very much committed to
8:05 am
the structure of the syrian state, which in theory we don't object to either. where we have continually butted heads, and this has been true for six years now, is his insistence that he cannot back unilaterally the removal of assad. that's a decision that assad and the syrians have to make. >> the obama doctrine. what is the obama doctrine? >> i've always shied away from labeling my foreign policy. what i believe is that the united states, as the world's singular superpower, has an obligation in all areas of the world where there's war and mayhem, to try to be a positive force. but that does not mean we should be deploying troops everywhere, where a crisis is taking place. we have to be judicious about how we use military power. >> when you stay don't do stupid stuff and when you said i'd like to be judged by what i didn't
8:06 am
do, some say that in fact you're putting too much emphasis on what we don't do and not enough emphasis on the choices we might have to do. >> i've heard this argument. look, charlie, when we sat down together back in 2009 when i first came into office, we were still in the midst of two active wars. since that time, we've been able to wind down act i have combat in those two theaters. those countries are by no means in great shape. al qaeda at the core has been dismantl dismantled. bin laden is dead. isil is losing territory. so i've shown no hesitance to use our military where necessary to protect american lives, american interests. >> let me focus on the red-line decision you made. many look at that and say because you did not and went over the opposition o
8:07 am
advisers, which is what a president is expected to do, make the hard choices, that what we have today, in part because of that decision, we have devastated state. we have had close to 500,000 people die. >> i think there's no doubt that there are many in the middle east who would have preferred me taking a shot at assad. but the reason is not because of some abstract notions of red lines. assad is a horrible leader, a horrible dictator who has shattered his country. it continues to be our position that we need to get him out of there. >> you have said more than one time that we're the strongest military, we have the best economy. you've mentioned the culture. america should own the 21st century, your words. what could stop us? >> a couple things could stop us. number one is if our political system continues to be dysfunctional. it's fascinati
8:08 am
which the single most important question i'm asked these days from other world leaders is, what's going on with your electio elections? the current presidential election is just the tip of a broader iceberg of dysfunction that we've seen. >> can i tell you how many people that i talk to before i did this interview and the question of what has he learned and what is his advice for his successor came up all the time. >> right. and so one of the things that i've learned is that the big breakthroughs are typically the result of just a lot of grunt work. there's a lot of blocking and tackling. what is important is making sure you have an organization that has integrity, that is clear about its mission.
8:09 am
>> i love when he really gets personal about how he feels about things. >> that took place about 20 minutes in. >> i've been reading through the transcript. i keep highlighting every word. we're going to see more of this interview, right? >> all of it tonight on my pbs program. >> all right. >> then i'll go see him in germany over the weekend and do part two. >> there's more to discuss. >> i guess this means you passed your security clearance. that's good. >> and gayle, you know charlie doesn't just go for one interview. he says, i'd like a two for, please. it's an exclusive times two. >> i like it
8:10 am
>> i'm the luckiest man in the world. >> looking forward to it. >> very good interview. more to see tonight. all right. federal officials have reportedly launched a criminal investigation into blood testing company theranos. "the wall street journal" reports on the front page that the justice department and the securities and exchange commission are looking into whether the biotech start-up misled investors, partners, or government officials about its testing technology. theranos, led by founder and ceo elizabeth holmes, promised fast, cheap, and accurate blood tests using drops of blood instead of viles. last month we spoke with "wall street journal" investigative reporter who first broke the news of the company's problems. >> so did they overpromise and underdeliver? p>> i think it's more than overhyping or overpromising. i think in this case, it's a company that may have gone live too soon with a medical
8:11 am
technology, with blood tests that it wasn't yet sure or outside parties hadn't yet validated as accurate. you're talking about blood tests that patients and doctors rely on for very important health decisions. and i think now regulators are waking up to the situation and making the company validate its data and get its lab up to snuff. >> in a memo to partners yesterday, a theranos spokesman said, quote, the company continues to work closely with regulators and is cooperating with all investigations. >> fascinating story. >> whatever happens at theranos, somebody is going to get to the point where they want it to be, which is the idea of having an easier way of taking blood and an easier way and a faster way of analyzing it. because that's a crucial medical diagnostic. >> of course, as we all know. that's how we get tested for all of our ailments. blood testing, indeed. >> a lot of other companies are in fact trying to be where they say they want to be. >> there's more to come on this

sperm donors lies are sparking fears this morning among parents of his biological children. a lawsuit filed yesterday in california argues the georgia sperm bank misled couples ant their donor. he allegedly fathered at least 36 children. cbs news legal expert is here. >> good morning. >> first, what does the lawsuit allege? >> what the lawsuit is alleging in many, many counts is really to say that what you thought you were getting, you were not getting. you have xytex putting the profile online. this donor was supposed to be someone who had a genius iq of 160, read lots of books, played the drums, was perfectly physically healthy, well educated, and represented by someone at

the plaintiffs, that he was quote/unquote, the perfect donor. so they move these plaintiffs and others toward this donor. what was he really? he was schizophrenic. he was a criminal. he was a felon who had been convicted. he had not been to college to go on and get further degrees. >> but is there no checking to see that people represent themselves accurately? >> no. >> anybody can walk in and say, look, i'm charlie rose smart, or i'm 6'2". there's nobody that checks? >> no. let's look at what these plaintiffs really want. what they're looking for is exactly that. there is no verification. someone comes in, he did a 30-minute interview, filled out a form, checked all the boxes that he was just fine. we know he checked them off with forethought because he did say they was color blind. it's not like he just checked all no

it's not only no verification of personal information, how much did it cost to go call the university and see if he was enrolled there? how much does it cost to do a background check for criminal history? very, very little money at all. and ultimately, you could get reports and a release from doctors to find out about medical conditions. >> they've said they'll vigorously defend themselves. in this case, the donor underwent a standard medical exam. we stand by the process we followed. well, we'll see if that continues to play out. >> well, part of the problem is that although the defense is correct that they probably could have never found out about his mental illness but for the criminal case where he was found competent to stand trial but they found out that he was mentally ill. >> the call to action is fraud, misrepresentation? >> all those things. fraud, misrepresentation, negligence, unfair practices. e
