7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning". president-elect donald trump will meet face-to-face with those he's challenged for weeks. fbi, cia and the director of national intelligence will brief mr. trump on russian hacking. the president-elect has refused to sep their conclusion that russia launched those cyber attacks. >> james clapper said a new investigation makes them more convinced of russia's role. they called them a full scope cyber actor that poses a threat to the u.s. nancy cordes is on capitol hill covering the event, nancy, good morning. >> good morning. lawmakers will be watching both sides to see if mr. trump's views change after that high-profile briefing. already up on capitol hill yeterday clapper made it clear
7:04 am
mr. trump's comments about the intelligence community indicating they're already probably hurting agents' morale. >> i think there's a difference between skepticism and disparagement. >> pressed by lawmakers, nation's top intelligence official weighed in on the president-elect's claim that u.s. intelligence on russia is off base. >> the russians have a long history of interfering with elections, theirs and other people's. >> clapper says there's no doubt that russia is behind the roiled cyber inclusions. >> propaganda, fake news. >> does that continue? >> yes. >> earlier this week mr. trump promoted claims from wikileaks founder julian a
7:05 am
russians did not give him the info but yesterday trump tweeted he doesn't agree with assange. i simply state what he states. it is for the people, he said. >> no matter whether you're a republican or democrat, there should be howls. >> both sides see him as the enemy to the u.s. >> mr. clapper, how would you describe mr. assange. >> i don't think those of us in the intelligence community have a whole lot of respect for him. >> mr. rogers says the dismissal could lower agency morale. >> without that i don't want a situation where a work force decides to walk. i really don't think that's a good place for us to be. >> several think we should retaliate against russia now. >> our nation has no policy and thus no strategy for cyber deterrence. >> i think what obama did was to throw a pebble. e i'm re
7:06 am
>> earlier this week mr. trump signaled he might be looking to radically revamp the office of direct national intelligence but yesterday it was confirmed he has chosen someone to lead the dni. it's former senator daniel coates who served, gayle, on the intelligence committee. >> thank you very much, nancy. today's briefing is based on an intelligence report prepared for president obama. officials say this leaves no doubt that russia interfered with the presidential election. jeff pegues has details on what mr. trump is expected to hear today. good morning. >> good morning. u.s. intelligence officials are headed into a meeting at trump tower united in their believe that russia interfered with the u.s. election. they state simply that russia did this. now the question is whether mr. trump will believe that assessment. u.s. officials tell cbs news the
7:07 am
years. investigators believe russian hackers have conducted waves of cyber attacks for about a decade. the briefing will include intercepts including russian officials. the report will also show u.s. intelligence agencies have identified the actors or go-tweens who delivered stolen democratic e-mails to wikileaks and its founder julian assange. over the last several months mr. trump has questioned whether the russians were involved, and the credibility of u.s. intelligence agencies. >> i just want them to be sure because it's a pretty serious charge. i want them to be sure. if you look at the weapons of mass destruction, that was a disaster and they were wrong. >> the criticism is causing a strain in his relationship with the intelligence community. >> we are part of the executive branch that the president will need to rely on. >> on thursday, cia director
7:08 am
expressed concerns within his agency about mr. trump's perceived skepticism. >> it's the time for officers to really strut their stuff, to be able to demonstrate just how good we are, how capable we are, the expertise we have. >> also on thursday former cia director james woolsey announced he's no longer an adviser to the senior trump transition team. he was taken aback that trump was considering revamping the framework but later he downplayed his role in the trump team. >> i was not called upon to go to the meetings or participate in work on the transition. >> one angle that may come up in today's intelligence briefing, whether the russians' goal was to expliciticly help donald trump. they say nemoive beyond a reasonable doubt will be diul
7:09 am
mrs. trump's perception of the intelligence community will be easier to gauge. in an interview president obama said he believes tensions will be reduced when mr. trump receives his own briefings from his own team. charlie? >> thanks, jeff. in an interview yesterday vice president joe biden said, quote, it is absolutely mindless to not have confidence in the intelligence agency. >> the idea that you know more than the intelligence community knows is a little like saying i know more about physics than my professor. i didn't read the book. i just know i know more. >> with us is kellyanne conway, former campaign manager for donald trump. good morning. >> good morning. >> the question being asked, is the president-elect questioning the credibility of the
7:10 am
that going to lead to a strained relationship and hurt morale? so the question people want to know in the end is what is president-elect trying to do? >> charlie, president-elect donald trump has great respect to the intelligence community. what's disappointing is having leaks in the media before we actually have a report on the alleged hacking and it's been very con founding to us and certainly to the president-elect why this report if it wasn't prepared until yesterday, why operators were expelled, why punishment preceded actual conclusions. i would remind us all what happen at yesterday's hearings. clapper and rogers admitted they're way behind the curve when it comes to cyber community. we should all share in that. we saw in the fbi report to the cnn that the fbi asked the dnc to take a look at its server and they were
7:11 am
the dnc refused to do that. that's why they were hack. one thing i want to say, let's not conflict the two things, that the respect for the intelligence community and the intelligence and security team that the president-elect has assembled for his administration is solid and he works with them daily. secondly, let's hear what's in the briefing today. let the president receive the information but he just received the information this week. >> does the director of intelligence officials believe russia did not hack? >> does the intelligence -- >> yes. >> i have not been in those briefings. the fact of the matter is very simple. we do not want any foreign government to interfere in this country, and what its people are doing, cyber security is very serious to this administration. at the same time, let's wait until the president-elect receives the briefing of this fresh new material. >> he didn't wait to receive the
7:12 am
doubt about the conclusion. >> and, norah, part of that is because as you know, maybe not on this tv set but in many places including some of the clips you show, people want a lot of america to see, to believe that russian hacking influenced the election results. vladimir putin did not discourage hillary clinton from competing in wisconsin and macomb county, michigan. it really is unfair and actually is unproven and it will be proven. let's ask ourselves a very simple question. why would russia want donald trump to win the presidency here? donald trump has promised to modernize our nuclear capability. he wants to increase the defense budget and he wants more oil and gas. >> he also seems to endorse what julian assange has said about the leaks over what the intelligence community is saying. i think that's very troubling. that didn't come from leaks. that came from donald trump's tweets. so people are basing it on at
7:13 am
one above the other. i think he's saying let's look at all the information. that's why they had hearings yesterday on capitol hill. that's why president obama is just now himself receiving the information. look. when we go back to president obama's legacy, they're not going to look at i was a tough guy against vladimir putin because i expelled 35 operatives in the waning days. why did he simply say to vladimir putin last summer, knock it off. >> why did he speak out before he got the report on twitter? >> what he's saying is he can't agree to the rush to judgment in the press. >> this is not a rush to judgment. th is testimony by the intelligence officials before congress yesterday. >> i agree with you. that happened yesterday. why last week did the president dispel these operatives. why for weeks has
7:14 am
grasped at everything. >> what's necessary for donald trump to believe that what the intelligence officials believe that the russians have been hacking? that's a very serious national security concern for intelligence people advising the president. >> let me repeat. president-elect trump and his administration are against any foreign interference. >> if they find evidence of that, what will he do? >> we'll see. he gets the briefings today. don't want to do what others have done, predisclose a result. >> can i ask you just a quick question? i understand now the president-elect is asking congress and taxpayers to pay for the wall, not mexico. is he going back on a campaign promise? >> no, norah. what we understand is congress is taking it on themselves to explore paying for the wall. nothing has
7:15 am
if they find this a top priority, then they should do that. >> kellyanne conway. >> thank you for having me. states from california to the carolinas are bracing for massive winter storms this morning. they're under winter advisories or warnings. a state of emergency is declared where several feet of snow is expected. california's mammoth mountain is under up to seven feet of new snow. look at that. the new snowbelt off lake ontario saw whiteout conditions with more than 2 feet of snow in the area. katy alexander is outside of a buffalo school where students spent mostf the night. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the school district sent out a message saying it was only expecting 3 to 6 inches of snow. that's why they kept the schools op
7:16 am
more than that, leaving some students stranded here until just a few hours ago. the lake-effect snow brought them to a grinding halt bring more than 2 feet of snow in new york. the storm buried vehicles and left people unable to drive through unplowed streets. some were stuck for more than five hours trying to get home. >> well, i started at 4:00, and i've got a guy ahead of me who's going to go ahead and plow me through. >> reporter: in orchard park students spent the day playing games before riding out on a bus around midnight. and in seneca buses stopped running forcing parents to come pick up their kids. at allendale, elementary, 17 students stayed until early this morning. >> it's buffalo weather. we're kind of unpredictable. as long as my kids'
7:17 am
first, that's all that matters. >> reporter: there is more snow expected in the coming days. gayle? >> thank you very much, katie. the man tortured in chicago during a live facebook stream is now speaking out about his ordeal. the victim is doing as well as can be expected and they're asked for privacy. investigators believe four people attacked him partly because of his race and partly because of his mental disability. dean reynolds is at the courthouse where the suspects face charges including hate crimes and aggravated kidnapping. >> reporter: good morning. the four suspects will be in the courthouse later this afternoon for a bond hearing. wouch them was actually a sometime friend of the victim. now a word of warning. what you're about to see is difficult difficult to watch. in a new v oideof the assault, the young man is forto

7:19 am
they then get aggravated at him and that's when they tie him up. >> reporter: he finally escaped when he left to confront a downstairs neighbor who was threatening to call the police. all four of the suspects have admitted to investigators their role in the tormenting and beating of the victim whose relatives say they're overwhelmed by the attention and greatly appreciate the support they've received. gayle? >> they've certainly got a lot of support. thank you very much, dean. it's gratifying to see however about is responding to this. >> that it could be streamed on facebook live is also very disturbing, the way they're laughing and cackling. >> it bothers me. >> it bothers anybody with a heart. >> agreed. >> thank you, dean. the parents of their son killed by isis, how t

on russia's first step in drawing down its forces in syria. russia announced today it's withdrawing its aircraft carriers off the water and border. last year they retook aleppo after years of fighting. a cease-fire now has been in place for a week. "usa today" says stanley black & decker may be wary of donald trump's border treatment. they may bring some manufacturing job bassing to the .s. an announcement came yesterday when they reached a die to buy the craftsman brand from sears for $900 million. sears says it will build a $35 million factory in the united states. the parents of a journalist speak out. steven sotloff was the second american killed by the isis group. his family spoke to lesley stahl for this sunday's
7:34 am
they discuss the last time they spoke with him and their frustrations over the government's no ransom policy. >> i am steven joe sotloff. i'm sure you know exactly who i am now and why i'm appearing before you. >> steven joe sotloff was beheaded by isis. his execution in 2014 was seen around the world on a video. >> did you ever watch it? >> i have viewed steven's body with his head on his chest. >> i had to see that to be sure that that was him. >> steven was born and raised in miami, attended college in israel, and became a freelance journalist reporting from war zones where information was scarce like yemen, benghazi, libya, and syria, where he went in the summer of 2013. just before he crossed into aleppo he
7:35 am
>> he contacted me and told me not to worry, but if i don't hear from him within four days that i should get in tumble with one of his colleagues. >> ooh. that's ominous. he didn't hear from his son not just for four days. it was four excruciating month. then finally they got a ransom letter with demands for the government to free all the muslims in u.s. custody. >> then there's a last option. 100 million euros will secure steven's release. >> which is like -- >> $137 million. >> what was your reaction? >> the reaction was how the hell are we going to get this money together. >> they thought the u.s. government would help them but they were bewildered and then infuriated when they say they met a stone wall. the u.s. policy forbidding the paying of ransom. >> lesley stahl is with us now
7:36 am
it's so chilling to hear the parents say they saw their child with his head on top of his body. >> it was horrible to have to ask them. >> what was their reaction when they saw that the u.s. would not pay for the ransom? >> anger naturally. they were told that if they did raise money they could be prosecuted and anyone who gave them money could be prosecuted. they felt they were threatened. they went out to try to raise the money themselves, but, one, they were afraid the government would come after them. and, two, how are they going to raise that mump money. >> how has the policy been changed? >> the government has a policy of not prosecuting and they coordinate more with the families, but they still do not pay ransom as a government. >> most governments pay ransom. >> a lot of the governments do. the united kingdom doesn't but
7:37 am
and what was so horrible in this situation is that steven was in a room with all the other western hostages and they watched the others bes set free and they paid litter. spain was able to negotiate it way down and the americans just sat there and watched them. >> does israel pay ransom? >> that i don't know. >> explain, i think, because the u.s. has been clear about this, about not paying ransom and the reason is because they believe -- our government would believe it would encourage them to take more hostages. >> that's the theory. also that it would fund terrorists who bomb and so forth. so there's two parts to the reason. but there's a new study that says that -- it says that terrorists take westerners as targets of opportunity. they d k
7:38 am
american, they don't know if they're spanish. they don't know if their governments pay ransom or not. so the study says it -- it refutes this theory that if you pay ransom, you're fueling or taking more. >> are they totally convinced that if the ransom had been paid that he would have been freed? >> yes, they believe that because they watched what happened to the europeans. >> that's tough. >> it's chilling and it's powerful. i mean these families now by giving interviews are working to change this policy because they believe it so fervently. >> thank you very much, lesley. you can see lesley's full report on sunday including the assistant for counterterrorism who says some white house officials feel they fail the families of victims. that's right here on cbs. the controversy of the act will stop this weekend. >> reporter: even in the rain the show

i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. president-elect donald trump will receive his first full classified briefing today on cyber attacks during the 2016 election. the leaders of the cia, fbi, dni's office and nsa are all expected to brief the president-elect. for week mrs. trump has openly question and mocked the intelligence community's conclusion that russia is behind the hacking. >> the director of national intelligence -- that's james clapper -- testified about the cyber attacks on capitol hill. clapper has served both the republican and democratic administrations. when asked about the hacking he said, quote, our assessment now is even more resolute. >> i don't think that we've ever encountered a more aggressive or direct campaign to interfere in our election process than we've seen in this case. this was a multifaceted
8:03 am
only one part of it, and it also eniled, you know, classical propaganda, disinformation, fake news. >> who actually is the benefactor of someone who's about to become commander in chief trashing the intelligence community? >> i think there is an important distinction here between healthy skepticism which policymakers -- which policymaker number one should always have intelligence. but i think there's a difference between skepticism and disparagement. >> president obama was asked about the tension between the president-elect and the intelligence community. he said this. my hope is that when the president-elect receives his own briefings and sees how professional and effective these agencies are that some of those current tengs will be reduced.
8:04 am
hacking report yesterday. sources tell cbs news the briefing report the president-elect receives today will go back years. investigators believe russian hacking units have conducted waves of sooner attacks for about a decade. the briefing will also include intercepts showing russian officials congratulating themselves after donald trump's win, happy that their plan had worked so well. u.s. officials believe the motive was to hurt hillary clinton's campaign and mr. trump's win was an added bonus. this morning kellyanne conway told us russia did not affect the election. >> it really is unfair and it was unproven and it will be unproven. let's ask ourselves a very simple question. why would russia want donald trump to win the presidency here? donald trump has promised to modernize our nuclear capability, he wants to increase our defense budget and he wants more oil and gas
8:05 am
>> david sanger is here. good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> russia tried to interfere with the election but to kellyanne's point did they interfere with the outcome and tip it in donald trump's favor? >> i think one of the interesting things that's going on with the trump campaign right now or the trump transition is that they are confusing the facts set of whether the russians came in, what they did, with the outcome, and they could easably in a position, i think, maybe after today's briefing but nation not, they think they were part of the group that came in but still didn't affect the outcome. so far they've deflated the two. >> they say they spent more money in arizona and georgia than wisconsin and michigan. >> i think that's
8:06 am
exactly the same result. but that doesn't mean the russians didn't try. >> what do we know about the evidence that the intelligence community is going to present to donald trump? this is an unprecedent meeting today. >> it is. what's interesting is he has said from the beginning he doesn't believe the russians were involved and i thought it was interesting that all three of the intel officials who testified yesterday had a pretty solid wall of saying the evidence is fairly clear. i think you'll see three different layers. i think you'll see the forensic evidence of where this came from. you'll probably hear about intercepts including some of those he had. you'll probably hear about implants which are what the nsa puts inside the networks of foreign countries so they can see the data. and if that data has shown up in russia, that would tell you that the russians had to get it somehow. >> what does it say about donald trump will work with the intelligence community going
8:07 am
questioning their capabilities? >> it's an interesting question, gayle. there are two fundamental things. one, many people in the intel community feel that their own integrity has been questioned than's not a great way to start. the second is they wonder whether or not president-elect trump wants to hear the facts first or come to down cliegss and they want to hear conclusions. >> in fact, they have suggested that the cia has become criticized. >> you know, charlie, if there's a critique that comes out of this experience, i don't think that they rushed to any conclusions. it's that they rushed too slowly. we know that the first evidence that they have gone to the dnc came in the fall of 2015 and yet no one acted on this until april or thereabouts while the dnc ignored some warnings,
8:08 am
president said he didn't hear anything until early summer. >> still there's a question why is the president still reluctant to accept what the intelligence agencies are saying? it's simply he hasn't seen it? >> well, i assume that they've given him some earlier verlgss. i don't know that for a fact. it may be simply this issue that he believes this is an effort to question the legitimacy of his election. and that's certainly what you hear from the people around him. i think the question is can they separate him today from that conclusion and the facts. you know what? it may not sim will i have been the russians. the dnc was so wide open, you can imagine other groups as well. >> what do you make of the report that the russians were celebrating donald trump's victory. kellyanne conway telling us, why would they want him to win? >> the russigo
8:09 am
mess around with their 2010 elections. the second is it's not clear to us from the reporting we did on a piece whether these intercepts of celebration were celebrations that their operation had won or celebration that hillary clinton had lost and those are two different things. >> beyond hillary clinton, we do know that vladimir putin has said the relationship has been bad with the united states. that has to do with the obama administration. >> maybe he feels this is getting in the way with his effort to rebuild that relationship. >> really interesting. i have a feeling david sanger will be back. >> you're a good talker. yes, you are. >> thank you for a lot of good inform snoogs thank you, guys. >> this sunday on "face the nation" we talk with --
