7:33 am
started there. but in essence at its core it's really an uplifting message getting to where you want to be and how to improve your life and i think it's something that is more inspirational than it is, you know, gossipy, if you will. as far as the trump situation, yes, i thought it was important to document as a historical record what it was like to be on receiving end of that behavior. and the reason, among others, is what donald trump did to me has real implications. i mean, i have a powerful microphone and a powerful platform at fox news and i had a company that had my back. however, not every journalist has that and not every journalist is quite as established as i am at this point in my career. in a president trump came after them like a candidate trump came after me, i think it would be

7:36 am
there was -- because we had always had a good relationship just to say not explicitly but the suggestion was let's move on from this. stop it. i don't belong on the playing field with you. i belong over here on the sidelines. and to his credit, he was able to move on even though he had held on to his anger for nine months. he did prove that he is able to do that and ever since, he and i have had a fine relationship. we are not tight friend, but he has treated me respectfully and he withstood my times without complaint and that is fine. >> you detail the harassment you received from roger ailes, your boss, the chairman of fox. that started in 2006? >> it started in august of 2005. >> did it continue after that? or was it just that short period of time? >> so after i brought the matter to a supervisor and was told this is a good man, he's
7:37 am
character and the suggestion was just avoid him. which i hadn't realized was an option. i mean, this is the chairman of the company who was calling me up to meet with him in new york. i was in the d.c. bureau. so i did that. i avoided him. and he left me alone after that, norah. it was -- that summer or that spring into summer, i developed a very bad stalking problem and on that matter, he was very supportive of me and had my back and that is detailed. >> you do write in the book had you said something or done somethin saved other women from experiencing that same harassment. >> let me make this clear. what i did when it happened to me was i contacted a lawyer just in case he retaliated against me with not doing anything with him. it's all well-documented contemporaneously. i reached out to other women whether it was a serial issue or just with me and i found it was no serial issue at the time. then i did bring it to a supervisor. as a lawyer, i can tell you when
7:38 am
an obligation to bring it to the company and deal with it. and the company could be exposed as a legal matter if that doesn't happen. >> this was the bureau chief in washington? >> i have not identified that person because i'm not looking to get this person in trouble. i believe at the time they tried to advise me to the best of his abilities and i think this person understood it's power. roger was like a king at fox news and nobody you take on lightly. i had been at the company 12 months i was a lawyend how to handle it but most pem who this happens to have no clue what to do and they are just scared. like me they want it to stop. i didn't want to put my career on the line. >> you had been there 12 months? >> you write in the book you used your power when it hit. i was wondering what your relationshipas your fellow colleagues. bill o'reilly rah here yesterday and this is what he had to same
7:39 am
here. i'm not that interested in this. >> sexual harass? you're not interested in sexual harassment? >> i'm not interested basically litigating something that is finished that makes my network look bad, okay? i'm not interested in making my network look bad at all, that doesn't interest me one bit. >> is that what she is doing? >> then last night, he seemed to say if a woman -- if you have a problem, go to human resources or leave the company. >> well, i'll say this. i am very proud of the fact that i discussed this with rupert murdoch before i wrote this chapter in my book and we were all on the same page this was an important chapter to include and i'm proud of them that they feel as i do, which is sunlight is the best disinfectant. >> you don't believe you're making the company look bad as
7:40 am
the company look bad. this doesn't just happen at fox news. we got rid of ours, but there are men, trust me, out there right now who are doing this to other women and other women who are watching this right now who are scared and don't know what to do because they know very well like i did in the moment if you speak up the reality you can talk loftly everything about taking a stance but the reality you're labeled a troublemaker norah. hopefully less than when it happened to me but they don't know what to do. i don't have after the answers but i'm trying to do shed a light on this and put other companies on notice that we are watching you. i would say to other women if it's happening i would seek out in particular a woman of power in our company who i felt could advise me well or go to at-bat for me. >> you plan to leave fox when, megyn? >> stop, gayle! >> we are really glad to have

? it is wednesday, november 16th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning.? there is more real news, including jeff flake, he criticized donald trump during the campaign but how does he feel now about the president-elect? we will ask him about that. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. the trump transition is revamping a lot. advisers insist infighting and chaos are overblown. >> democrats are escalating their ca fllsor dd onaltrump to reverse his decision to bring steve bannon into the west wing. president obama said america n still be counted on, despite the u.s. election and upheaval
8:01 am
normal here today. police are now trying to figure out why the gunman opened fire. >> i am very proud of the fact that i discussed this with rupert murdoch before i wrote this chapter in my book. they feel as i do, sunlights i the best kiss disinfectan. >> all right, megyn. and you plan to leave fox when? >> oh, stop! gayle! >> heaarry caray hollow cow! the p hat and baseball from the world champion cubs. >> if the president-elect decides to split his time between the white house and the penthouse, protection could be a challenge. not just now, but throughout his presidency. >> does president-elect notnd the number one job requirements? right there in the constitution. must be willing to relocate.
8:02 am
donald trump's presidential inauguration is 65 days away. his transition team is described as stalled and scrambling. in a tweet last night, mr. trump called the process, quote, very organized. >> vice president-elect mike pence who is in charge of the transition has ordered all lobbyists to leave. trump told lesley stahl on "60 minutes" that lobbyists are necessary. >> they leave government and become a the whole place is one big lobbyist. >> you're basically saying you have to rely on them, even though you want to get rid of them? >> i'm saying they know the system right now but we are going to phase that out. you have to phase it out. >> the president-elect son-in-law jared kushner is said to be behind many of the changes in the transition team. according to "the new york times" the firing of mike rogers
8:03 am
kushner. the u.n. secretary-general and said trump must honor the 2015 agreement that aimed to shift the world from fossil fuels to cleaner energy. the president-elect has called climate change a hoax. this is what he said back in may. >> we are going to cancel the paris climate agreement and stop -- unbelievable. united states tax dollars to u.n. global warming programs. >> the president-elect has not talked about climate change since the election. senator bernie sanders told us on monday that mr. trump's views are a concern. >> what this guy is talking about, in terms of climate change, should frighten not only the people in this country, but around the world, because if the president of the united states does not believe that climate change is real, if he is not going to be aggressive in
8:04 am
to the entire world. >> the president-elect chose myron ebell a leading climate change skeptic to lead his epa transition team. >> during the campaign, arizona senator jeff flake was one of donald trump's loudest republican critics. >> we cannot, for the future of the party, be associated with this kind of message and with this kind of tone and you can't do as a candidate and some of the things he's done, i think, are beyond the pale. to put your own judgment, his judgment above that of the intelligence communities is frightening, frankly. he can't win and, frankly, he shouldn't win an election if he continues to use this kind of language and espouse these kind of positions. >> senator flake is with us from capitol hill. senator, good morning. >> thanks for having me on.
8:05 am
frightening beyond the comments made beyond the pale, now he is the leader of your party. what do you think is the biggest challenge going forward? >> well, the only consolation of being wrong, i wasn't the only one being wrong for his ability to be elected. no, a lot of big challenges going ahead and he is putting together his team. it's never easy to do, particularly when you're coming in not having been in government. so let's give him some space to do that. >> do you have some concerns as the reporting d trump transition team is in disarray, that they are slowly moving forward, that there are officials at the defense department and state department who said they have not yet been contacted by the trump transition team? >> well, i'm not sure at what point they have traditionally been contacted, but i think we have got to give him some space here to put the team together. like i said, it's a tough thing under any circumstances, but
8:06 am
think it's definitely difficult. i'm certainly willing to give them some space to do something. >> i assume that includes steve bannon, his chief strategic adviser in the white house? >> you know, i don't know him at all. i had not heard his name until a few months ago when he joined the campaign. i haven't studied to see what remarks were actually his. >> let me change the question then. i hear you and we all hear you. what is your test and when will you say i'm satisfied or this goes beyond where i'm comfortable? >> well, like i said let's give them some space. i'm of the mind to always give the president a lot of deference when he is putting together his team. and so i think that we need to wait and see. i haven't read exactly what he said. just have seen some things attributed to the publication that he used to run. any way. i'd want to see more before rendering a judgment there.
8:07 am
he stands for, what it's been reported he stands for, does that concern you? everyone keeps thinking, i don't know anything about him, i don't know him or i haven't met him. when you hear what he allegedly stands for, does that concern you? >> well, when you see things that are printed in breitbart, some of the headlines and what not, of course, that is concerning. how much he can be blamed for that, that is another question. so let's give sometime and some space here and see where it goes. >> let's talk about the suggestion of rudy giuli secretary of state. rand paul did an interview last night and he said you want a diplomat, not a bomb thrower in that position. what do you think about the suggestion of rudy giuliani being secretary of state? >> there are some other names floated as well. bob corker and others. i don't want to make a comment that would influence trump administration one way or another. so i'll coop my comments to myself there. but, obviously, we want somebody who can be effective there.
8:08 am
chairman of the foreign relations committee here. >> you're on the foreign relations committee. would it raise concern for you if trump nominate somebody to be secretary of state and has business ties and received money from qatar and iranian parties and russia and venezuela? does that complicate things? >> i've seen that being reported, but i would want to look at and see what is actually real and what is not. it wasn't just a speech given or something else? that. >> senator, what is the most positive thing for you in the election of donald trump? >> well, the ability to go and repeal obamacare and replace it with something better. that's a big thing. to actually go to all of the regulations hampering small and big businesses and hampering the economy. to have more conservative appointments to the supreme court. these are all very positive
8:09 am
effective administration. as mentioned, i did not support the candidacy of donald trump but going forward, we have no choice but to look for the good and assume the best and move ahead. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. coming up, we will talk about -- wait, before you go, you are opposing a proposal that would soften restrictions on earmarks. so when the funding for certain projects are included in can you tell us why that is so important to you? >> one of the reasons that republicans were driven out of the majority in 2006 was rampant earmarking that was both wasteful and corruptive. that is one reason that we got out of the majority. i would hate to bring earmarks back now. and when we are talking about draining the swamp, the last thing we ought to do is go back
8:10 am
extremely e ruppive. >> one of the earmarks say it could get the congress working again. >> most of them say it greases the skids but it has legislation that doesn't pass. it greases the skids but we are $20 trillion in debt and running 500 billion dollar definite every year. the notion to bring these projects back that more wasteful spending is absurd so i hope we consider it closely before doing it. >> senator flake, thank you for your time. >> you bet. thank you. are office depot customers buying services they do not need? ahead, an undercover
