7:03 am
can't hear you. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." president-elect donald trump is accusing intelligence agencies of spreading false information. he discussed his concerns last night with the director of national intelligence, james clapper. in his first news conference, the president-elect denied claims that russia had damaging and personal information about him. he accused some reporters of spreading what he called fake news leaked by intelligence sources. >> now, james clapper said after talking with mr. trump last night that they agreed that press leaks are extremely corrosive and damaging to our national security, but clapper made clear he does not believe that the leak of a 30-page list of unverified activities came from the intelligence community. in fact, he said it is not a u.s. intelligence document. mar
7:04 am
president-elect news conference at trump tower. good morning. >> good morning. president-elect trump did cover a lot of ground at that press conference but he dodged a couple of questions, specifically if anyone on the campaign would go with the russia officials. but on the topic of potential russian blackmail, mr. trump was unequivocal it's all fake news. it's phony stuff. it didn't happen. >> president-elect donald trump forcefully denied he or his campaign staff were influenced by the russians. >> i think it was disgraceful, disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake out. that's something that nazi germany would have done and did do. >> ending months of denial, mr. trump admitted russia was to blame for the cyber attacks the 2016 election. >> think it was russia, but i think we a g
7:05 am
other countries. >> sir, can you -- >> quiet, quiet. >> clashing with the reporter from cnn, he punished the network for reporting he was given the condensed version of the unsubstantiated rumors. >> i'm not going to give you a question. you are fake news. >> mr. trump also offered first details about separating himself from his various business investments saying he will not sell his companies but hand the rein iranians to his two sons donald and eric. >> they're going to run it. they will not discuss it with me. >> within days of the election he offered his thoughts on the supreme court vacancy and how to pay for the wall at the u.s./mexico border. >> what's your timeline. >> you said a while ago you were down to four. >> that will probably be within two week os testify 20th
7:06 am
so within about two weeks, probably the second week. >> and on the border fence, it now appears u.s. taxpayers will have to pay for it up front. >> that's not clear at all. it's not a fence. it's a wall. you just misreported it. we're going to build a wall. i could wait about a year and a half until we finish our negotiations with mexico, which will start immediately after we get to office, but i don't want to wait. >> back to that call from the director of national intelligence, it was meant to diffuse a dispute that could fester from now until inauguration day and that's something that the intelligence community and top trump advisers would very much like to avoid. norah? >> all right, major. to make sure it doesn't fester, how does it get fixed? >> well, it's not going to be easy. the president-elect feels the intelligence community has done him wrong throughout this entire transition process with the russian hacking disclosures. now he's been forced to admit that. that's now a concession to the
7:07 am
right about something he tried to deny for quite a long while. his grievance about this latest flak goes to the intelligence community and it has to involve where they both trust each other, rely on each other, and both rely on common cause, and right now that's not the feeling either side has about each other. >> all right. thank you. >> picking up on that, that's what leon panetta says too. thank you very much. he's warning the president-elect about feuding with intelligence agencies. panetta told scott pelley on cbs news last night that they need to trust each other to protect the country. he says criticizing those agencies in public can have serious consequences. >> i think what happens is it damages the credibility of not only the intelligence that's being provided but more importantly it undermines the
7:08 am
morale of twhoes are involved in our intelligence services. these are good patriots. they're committed to getting the best intelligence possible for the president of the united states. that involves risk. they have to put their lives on the line. they're going to hesitate to do that if they feel the president of the united states does not trust the work that they're doing. >> leon panetta says if mr. trump needs to question intelligence agencies, he should do it in the oval office. >> senators grilled the president-elect pick for secretary of state as mr. trump's news conference unfolded. former exxonmobil ceo rex tillerson has been asked to comment on his own ties. nan scy cordes is at the capita where that could bring about discussion. >> good morning. given all the talk of russian
7:09 am
surprising that russia was a big focus of the questions at tillerson's hearing, and it's unclear whether the former exxon ceo said enough to satisfy some key republican holdouts. >> is vladimir putin a war criminal? >> i would not use that term. >> florida senator marco rubio was looking for tough language from tillerson, but he didn't get it. >> mr. tillerson, do you believe that vladimir putin and his cronies are responsible for ordering the murder of countless dissidents, journalists, and opponents? >> i do not make that claim. >> it also became clear he has never discussed russia with his would-be boss. >> i would have thought that russia would be at the very top of that considering all the actions that are taking place. did that not happen? >> that has not occurred ye
7:10 am
senator. >> it's pretty amazing. >> outside the hearing room, there was one topic on everyone's mind. >> always wondered what did russia have on donald trump. >> some republicans suns state yat there was a leak by the u.s. intelligence. but the teerls stem from a private investigation, not a u.s. probe. senator john mccain was handed a copy from late last year from an outside source he wouldn't name. >> i don't know. that's why i gave it to the fbi. >> reporter: rubio did not address the specific allegations but it's clear russia is achieving its objectives. >> i think they're sitting back and saying we've got americans fighting over our involvement in the election. that's perfect. that undermines their democracy. >> russia is going to dominate the conversation once again today because the president-elect pick to head the cia, mike
7:11 am
hearing as will general james ma da. gayle? >> thanks, nancy. this morning it is objecting to the senate testimony of the secretary of state nominee. i lez beelizabeth palmer has mo. good morning. >> good morning. you can probably see the kremlin through the snow behind me. they've just had their regular press conference, press briefing and top of the agenda, no surprise, the u.s./russia relations. first off, the spokesman said that the u.s. military holed up in poland threatens russia's national interest. just a few days ago all the hardware of a u.s. combat came ashourd the docks of germany and it's now rolling toward poland. 4,000 u.s. troops are going to hook up with it and then will take part in extensive
7:12 am
multi-national nato exercises all through the summer. this amounts to the first buildup of u.s. troops on european soil since the cold war and the russians clearly don't like it. peskov also singled out at the hearing that the an ex-yags of crimea by russia almost two years ago was illegal. not surprising peskov says they disagree. they calldid say trump's callinr a dialogue is a hopeful sign. >> here's the question. what are the russian media reporting on the documents published by "buzzfeed"? >> reporter: it's interesting that they don't dominate the majority of the headlines today. certainly they say they don't have any material they could use to blackmail donald trump, but what's taking up equal space in the media
7:13 am
donald trump's chaotic press conference yesterday, his dustup with some members of the media, and also barack obama's good-bye speech. you can see the big photograph on the front page of president obama wiping away a tear, gayle? >> all right. liz palmer. i wonder this, liz. when donald trump gives a live news conference, does russia cover it? >> depending on where they are in the week, but, yes, a chunk of it would be carry ied. after two days of hearings, cory booker made an impassioned plea. he joined some of the congressmen in criticized his record on civil rights. >> we need someone who's going
7:14 am
out for people who have been discriminated against. we need someone as an attorney general who's going to look out for all of us and not jt some of us. >> three of sessions' former colleagues defended him. er assistant u.s. attorney huntly said, quote, segs will enforce and follow the laws in the united states even handedly, equally, and with justice for all. the senate is expected to confirm sessions. senate voted 51%/48% overnight to create legislation that would dismantle parts of the afford aboutable care act. the measure protects the repeal from any fill buster and that it can pass with a simple majority. the republican controlled house plans to vote on the resolution tomorrow. one of the world's largest automakers has applied to plead guilty on an emissions test

conspiracy in the u.s., wire fraud and violations of the clean air achlkt one oliver schmidt was arrested over the weekend. the other five are believed to be in germany. now typically germany does not extradite its citizens outside of the european union, so it's unclear if the others will ever face u.s. justice. attorney general loretta lynch said prosecutors will continue to pursue individuals responsible for the cheating scre scheme. charlie? >> thanks so much. flooding caused evacuations. rescuers used boats to help some escape. john blackstone is in hogster, the scene of dozens of rescues. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. here in holster the rain has receded somewhat but rain is still

king and norah o'donnell. president-elect donald trump spoke with the director of national intelligence last night after accusing the intelligence community lies about him. in a rare statement james clapper said he talked with the president-elect on recent reports on the intelligence briefing last friday. clapper said, quote, i expressed my profound dismay at the leaks that have been appearing in the press and we both agree that they are extremely corrosive and damaging to our national security. >> james clapper also said that they spoke about a 35-page document containing potentially compromising information on the president-elect. that document has not been verified. claerp sa clapper said this, quote, i emphasize that this doumit is not a u.s. intelligence community product.
8:03 am
>> i thit was disgraceful, disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake out. i think it's a disgrace, and i say that and i say that and that's something that nazi germany would have done and did do. i think it's a disgrace, that information that was false and fake and never happened got released to the public. >> this morning mr. trump tweeted, quote, james clapper called me yesterday to denounce a false and fictitious report that was illegally circulated, made up, phony facts, too bad. well, the president-elect answered questions, they did the same on capitol hill. rex tillerson has known russian president vladimir putin for more than a decade. he also
8:04 am
between tillerson and the president-elect. >> we're not likely to ever be friends. i think as others have noted our value systems are starkly different. we do not hold the same values but i also know the russian people because of having spent so many years in russia. there is scope to define a different relationship. >> first of all, nato, just to be clear, because i know there was a discussion about nato earlier, particularly article 5, can you just clarify that you believe article 5 creates a binding obligation to assist any member of the alliances of the victim of aggression regardless of their size or geographical location? >> yes, sir, i do. wo and as a secretary of state uld you ever break the commitment to spend more on defense? >> i would not recommend that, no, sir. risk of climate changeoe ds exist and that the consequences of it could be serious enough that action should be taken. >> what do you believe the position of the united states ought to be in the south china
8:05 am
doing to stop china from violating international law? >> china's activity in this area is extremely worrisome. i think, again, the failure of a response has allowed them just to keep pushing the envelope on this. so, again, we find we are where we are and we just have to deal with it and the way we've got to deal with it is we've got to show back up in the region with our traditional allies in southeast asia and i think, use some existing structures to begin the reingaugement. >> tillerson also said the buildup in the south china sea is illegal. ian, good morning. >> good morning to you. >> a lot to talk about. one of the questions that mr. trump did not answer yesterday in his press conference was whether he could say with 100% certainty whether anyone on his campaign had direct contact with the russians during the election. why do you think that question is important?
8:06 am
he knew he had been asked. he clearly had been briefed. no, i'm not taking that one. maybe it means he's not sure. maybe he is. either way, it's very clear from there report that was leaked 35rks-page report on russia and trump, that there's a lost information about ongoing connections between members of trump's foreign policy team including carter page who trump report lid said he didn't know but was originally one of the four advisers that trump made known to the press. paul manafort was, of course, sacked from the trump administration, all the way through in terms of awareness of the leaks. >> i do think it's important to point out that 35-page document is a dossier made up by washington journalists paid by political operatives. pit's unverified. >> put together by a british firm. >> yes. put together by or vis.
8:07 am
information on russia, we have a team of russia experts. we've looked at it very carefully. a lot of that analysis looks reasonably plausible. >> the point is it's a dossier. it's not been verified. >> that's right. i think there's no condition right now that the ability to come out and say this is factual is not there. >> isn't it more interesting to find out, too, whether what he'll do with sanctions, russian sanctions perhaps. >> i think it's very clear, very clear. i mean one of the big things in the news that came out yesterday is trump admitted after saying there was no reason to believe that russians were behind this, it could have been a 400-pound guy sitting in a bed, he said, yeah. still, it might have been someone else. he focused china being a much bigger hacking threat. he consistently wants to downplay russia and says russia working with the united states closer is clearly a very good
8:08 am
thing. if you're trump and your public view is they're not going to do it nemt under me and might not have been them, well, clearly it's wrong to have sanctions against them for something you can't even prove or verify. >> he also said yesterday, ian, if he had a relationship with vladimir putin, that would be an asset, not a liability. rex tillerson in a confirmation hearing says something different. what is your take on that? >> tillerson is in campaign mode because he needs to actually still get confirmed so it's a little bit dicey. i can understand why tillerson just like sessions would say things very different from trump who has already won his election and continues to be very unfettered. but i think on sanctions itself, it's very clear exxonmobil's position from day one has been we want these off. all they're doing is damaging the u.s. relationship. >> is putin an asset, not a liability? >> to trump, slrnly an asset. to the united states, it is not clear. putin clearly was
8:09 am
the support from russia in delegitimizing. >> he likes trump, not as little. is he representing the united states and he can be aggressive in pursuing that in and still have putin like him. >> sure. >> and i think tillerson doesn't seem to have much relevance to anything. >> it clearly seems to be relevant to trump in terms of the way he's orienting. >> the policy is not how it affects hi ego. >> i think -- look. tillerson is clearly one of the strongest adults that's been nominated to the cabinet. and to the extent that he has a problem, it's because everyone that's looking at trump and russia thinks this doesn't add up. >> we can ask jamie dimon this, too, because he's coming up. among the people we know, do you think rex tillerson, the people of the elites do, you think rex tillerson would be a g
8:10 am
united states? >> they certainly do. we're talking about former secretaries of the state up and down, the republicans are strong. they were the ones that supported, you know, suggesting him to trump. but the fact is that tillerson on russia will enable trump policies that right now deeply unnerve the republican party and i think that's why you see paul ryan and others coming as strongly after -- >> marco rubio. >> yes, absolutely. yesterday in the hearings marco rubio and many others. >> thank you. ian. glad to have you here. ian bremmer. this week on face the nation vice president-elect mike pence will join john dickerson here on cbs. dr. tara narula is in our toyota green room to expla

8:17 am
vascular system, but how. it's the first image study that shows us the particular area of the brain and the pathway that connects it to the arterial inflammation that is the beginning of atherosclerosis or plaque. so researchers in the study looked at three different individuals. they did a p.e.t. scan on them. what they found is in the activity of the brain, it was strongly predictive of those cardiovascular events. in addition, if it was highly active, it would predict you would have a cardiovascular event sooner, so the timing was related. what was most interesting to me was the pathway. what they found was not only the mig doula lit up but the bone marrow. it was producing these white blood cells. that's what they hypothesized as the pathway. it leads to increase of white blood cells and
8:18 am
>> where is that? i'm trying to think. should we be protecting that? >> we should. >> where is it. >> the amyamygdala is on the ri and left side of the brain. it elicits memory. you'll perform memories in that area. in addition, emotional reaction. so things like feerks aggression, arousal all housed in the amygdala. >> so you can be happy you have a good brain. >> i guess. >> what can you do about this? >> that's what people want to know. we obviously need a lot more research on this, particularly on humans. we have a lot of animal research. certainly meditation, visualization, mindfulness has been shown to change and shrink the size. in addition, psycho therapy.
8:19 am
the hope is by elucidating these pathways, we might be able to come up with novel therapeutics and finding outlets for your frustration, finaling social connective ps, that helps. so there are techniques that people can use. >> connectiveness, having good friends. >> yes. >> how do you deal with stress, gayle? i don't think you're ever stressed out. >> not that i'm aware of. i certainly must be. you don't feel stressed either, do you? you don't either rngs i wish i had a great story to tell. >> maybe i do and i don't know it. >> it's because you don't feel it. most of the people i talk to in my office, i always ask about stress because it is a cardiovascular stress level. for most americans it's a big deal. >> there's something you can do about it is the bottom line. >> thank you, dr. tara narula. baby lola may be the youngest fan of the dallas cowboys. ahead, how the

skills are. they could be in lodge it is ticks, supplies. it's a great effort to take the citizens we hold in the highest regard and get them jobs. >> but now you started the new program about a year ago and you're going after high school students especially at a time when they're searching what am i going to do with my life. >> there is economic and moral imperative that we get jobs for kids. they don't graduate or if they do graduate, they're not qualified for a job. so this is all the things they need from social skills to specific jobs to get kids jobs. radiology, aviation, coding. there's going to be 16 million jobs available on the next seven or eight years and these kids want jobs. these are middle class jobs. these jobs pay $40,000 to $60,000 a year. it has to be done with companies and government. it cannot be done by one or the other. >> why does it matter to you, jamie dimon? because you could do anything with anybody.
8:34 am
>> big companies are philanthropic but we're all invested in having communities that work with everything. if america thrives, cities are healthy. that's better for all of us, for social, for families. it's a moral imperative. i would do it for that reason alone, but america needs to compete around the world and if we don't have trained employees, we're not going to compete as well. >> are you suggesting public/private are the way to go in. >> i think the jobs in san francisco are different than the jobs in new york. they need phlebotomists and radiologists. i was in focus hope in detroit where they need machine control operators. these are tough jobs. >> but donald trump said he's going to be the greatest jobs producer god ever created. can you top that? >> i hope he's right. >> how is donald trump going to affect business? what would you like to
8:35 am
person to read about donald trump is my daughter who writes for "the daily news." >> laura dimon. >> from a loving father. >> a worthy profession, journalism. >> it is a very worthy profession. >> what page is she on? >> 3 and 4. >> oh, you know. >> for any president-elect, it is important that we have a healthy vibrant economy. it's important for jobs, businesses, middle-class wages, low skimmed wages and i'm hoping a lot of policies -- we're talking tax reform which we desperately need. that's probably the most important thing but there are a whole series of things like infrastructure. >> do you have opinions on trade or -- >> not really, but i think his opinions so far have been, you know, one-liners, and, you know, he's quite clear when you read the art ohe
8:36 am
like that, that he takes an extreme position. but he's hired a lot of professional people. he's put on the playing field people that are experienced, successful, smart, patriotic, you know, and then you've about got to get into the detail. it's got to be a lot of detail. >> did he talk to you about being treasury secretary? >> i was not offered the job. i never thought i was suited for the job. i had a contact with them and i'm thrilled. i haven't finished what i'm doing. i know steve mnuchin and i think he's quite qualified, he's very smart, he wants to do the right thing, he knows them quite well >> and rex tillerson? >> rex tillerson is a class act. again, he's smart and patriotic. i listen to some of the press that he's had deals with russia. almost every country has had dealings with russia. that doesn't question patriotism. the other thing is success. do you want people who are
8:37 am
unsuccessful? successful, experienced, you know, respected by everybody in deals around the world. i think that's a pretty good trade. >> i want to get your take on globalism or anti-globalism. one of the things trump said yesterday is companies who move jobs outside the u.s. will face a, quote, very large border tax. >> yeah. >> are you worried about trade and how it will affect the economy? >> not -- you know, again, i'm looking past the one-lines and thinking about what's important for america. so a lost us do business all around the world. part of america's competitiveness is because we have microsoft and boeing and p p morgan chase and we have to educate the world on that. the downside, you've seen people recognizing there are downsides to trading. there are towns in america who have been devastated by it. we have to do a better job at fixing that. this thing called trade assistano
8:38 am
trade, relocation, reeducation, business development so that the people who are hurt are taken care of. i think we have to do all of these various things to make sure it works for everybody in america. >> you're offer to davos very soon. >> unfortunately, yes. >> some are suggesting that china is now the leader of globalization and the united states is seeming to be feeding populism and the resistance to what we know as globalization. >> look. i think it geesd that he's going there. you know, china is a large country. it has -- it's so far behind the united states it's not even funny. i say that respelktfully. they have 500 million people living in poverty. not enough food, water, energy. they don't have our education system, our rule of law, they don't have most of what we have, our innovation capabilities. i'm saying that respectfully of china. i understand that china wants to rise up anothing the world
8:39 am
take its rightful place and it's understandable. but in my personal opinion it's very important that america maintain its superior economic position which is, by the way, the root of the -- foundation of the military position. they go hand in hand. america has been so important for the growth of the world, the consistency of the world, the economic freedom of the world, the spray of democracy. we shouldn't lose that. >> are you optimistic about the trump presidency? >> yes, i am. >> because? >> because he's putting professionals in the field. if you want too win the game, put tom brady in the field. >> are you a patriots fan too? >> partially because robert kraft is a good friend of mine. >> what's your opinion on the united states regarding the presidency that the u.s. should do in terms of innovation, in terms of science, in terms of technology. >> what i'm about to talk to is good for all americans. when good business comes
8:40 am
they speak on what's good forbusiness. this is good for business. growing america. small businesses to large businesses and they're very symbiotic. for every business there are 40,000 venn dors. tax reform. what we're doing in taxes is driving capital brains, r & d overseas and it's bad idea and part of it is reverse. you've gotten the reverse it right away. jobs, having kids educated is the biggest moral imperative we should have. we should be ringing alarm bells. it's a system that's broken and it's our inability to create jobs. if you want wages go up, those two things will do it. >> jamie dimon, we can feel your passion. i've got to go, jamie dimon. go ahead and finish your sentence. >> earned income tax credit. it gives them living wages, the dignity of a job, helps small businesses, not beg companies. think i with
8:41 am

8:47 am
from there ortiz walks out to give his now famous 54-world speech. instead of trying to recreate the movie, the movie cut actual game footage. the filmmakers didn't want the movie just to be about the bombing but to show hope. >> he really summed it up better than anybody when he talked about how the city was fielded about what happened and this movie is about good overpowering evil and love being stronger than hate. >> oh, man. i thought it was an unbelievable opportunity and i was more than happy do it. i mean i would do anything for this town. >> reporter: boston strong, boston town. >> absolutely. >> we don't got that problem. in this city, when it comes to terrorism, everybody wants to talk. >> i take where i come from very
8:48 am
held accountable by everybody if i didn't get it right. >> reporter: what's been the biggest challenge in doing the movie? >> staying in the moment. i get so overwhelmed with emotion when i think about all the families and the victims. in my script i have pictures of everybody and it just reminds me of the responsibility that i carry. >> director peterberg is aware of the criticism they face from locals who don't want hollywood to profit off tragedy or feel it's too soon to dramatize. >> and to people that think it's too soon, what you do say? >> mark and i were talking about it, is it too soon, is it too soon. mark said, i think it might be too late. it can't be too soon. how can it be too soon to showcase the spirit and the love that this city responded with, particularly when you look at what's happening, you know, it seems every month now. people are saying, why, for what, how can we stop it.
8:49 am
i don't have the answer to that. but we do see regardless of what happens and what they do to us, love seems to triumph, and that -- i don't think it's too soon for that. >> it really was an emotional journey for those involved but a moment of levity when we shot. david ortiz was at the beginning of his farewell season and while we were there talking with mark wahlberg and david ortiz, we watched this mega movie star turn into a mega fan. they even suggested because ortiz was doing so well, how about an eight-year deal. it was nice to see that. >> i like when you say boston strong, boston family. peter and mark feel very strong and passionate. >> you see it in the movie too. >> you do. it will be in
