welcome to "cbs this mornin morning". president-elect donald trump will meet face-to-face with leaders of intelligence agencies he has challenged for weeks. the directors of the cia, fbi and nsa plus the director of national intelligence will brief mr. trump on election related hacki hacking. the president-elect has refused to accept their conclusion that russia launched those cyberattacks. >> director of national intelligence told the senate arms services committee that a new investigation makes him even more convinced of russia's role. in a statement, clapper and other officials called russia a full-scope cyber actor that poses a major threat to the u.s. nancy cordes is on national hill. good morning. >> good morning. lawmakers from both sides will watch closely today to see if mr. trump's views on rush kra change after that high-profile briefing. already on capitol hill clapper
7:04 am
made it clear he does not appreciate some of mr. trump's comments about the intelligence community, indicating they are already possibly hurting agents' morale and reputation. >> i think there's a difference between skepticism and disparagement. >> reporter: pressed by lawmakers, the nation's top intelligence official weighed in on the president-elect's claims, that u.s. intelligence on russia is off base. >> the russians have a long history of interfering in elections, theirs and other people's. >> reporter: clapper says there's no doubt russians were behind the cyber intrusions that roiled the democratic national committee and the clinton campaign. the meddling, he says, didn't stop there. >> classical propaganda, disinformation, fake news. >> does that continue? >> yes. >> reporter: earlier this week, mr. trump promoted claims from wikileaks founder julian assange that the russians did not give
7:05 am
him the info. yesterday mr. 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 republican or a democrat, there should be howls. >> reporter: lawmakers from both sides see assange as an enemy of the u.s. >> director clapper, how would you describe mr. assange? >> i don't think those in the intelligence committee have a whole lot of respect for him. >> reporter: also testifying, director of the nsa michael rogers who says mr. trump's dismissal of the claims could be lower agency morale. >> without that confidence, i don't want a situation where someone decides to walk. i don't think that's a good place for us to be. >> reporter: several senators argued the u.s. needs to retaliate against russia now. >> our nation has no policy and thus no strategy for cyber deterrence. >> i think what obama did was throw a pebble. i'm ready to throw a rock.
7:06 am
>> reporter: earlier this week mr. trump signaled he might be looking to radically revamp the office of the director of national intelligence. yesterday cbs news confirmed he has chosen someone to lead the dni. it is former indiana senator dan coates, long-time senator 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 believe that this leaves no doubt that russia interfered with the presidential election. jeff beg gas has details on what mr. trump is expected to hear today. good morning. >> good morning. u.s. intelligence officials are heading into this afternoon's meeting at trump tower united in their belief that the russians med ld in the u.s. election. a senior law enforcement officials tells cbs news simply, russia did this. the question is whether mr. trump will believe that assessment. u.s. officials tell cbs news the briefing will stretch back
7:07 am
years. investigators believe russian hackers have conducted waves of cyberattacks for about a decade. the briefing will include intercepts between russian officials congratulating each other after donald trump's win, allegedly showing the russians were pleased with the outcome of their plan. the report will also show u.s. intelligence agencies have identified the actors or go-betweens 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 and i want them to be sure. if you look at the weapons of mass destruction, that was a disaster, and they were wrong. >> reporter: 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. >> reporter: on thursday cia director john brennan explained
7:08 am
how he addressed concerns within his agency about mr. trump's perceived skepticism. >> it's the time for cia officers really to strut their stuff, to be able to dmon straight just how good we are, how capable we are, the expertise we have. >> reporter: also former cia director james woolsey announced he was no longer a senior adviser to the trump transition team. he was taken aback by trump considering revamping the country's intelligence. he down played his role in the transition team. >> i didn't feel i was being misrepresented, but i was not really called upon to go to meetings or participate in work on the transition. >> one angle that may come up in today's intelligence briefing, whether the russian's goal was to explicitly help donald trump. intelligence sources say proving any motive beyond a reasonable doubt will be difficult.
7:09 am
whether this changes mr. trump's feelings will be easier to gauge. obama believes tensions will be reduced when mr. trump receives his own briefings from his own team. >> vice president joe biden said it's, quote, absolutely mindless, for a president not to have confidence in his intelligence agencies. >> the idea that you know more than the intelligence community knows, it's 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 now, kellyanne conway, counselor to president-elect trump and his former campaign manager. >> good morning. >> here you have mr. clapper saying there's a difference between skepticism or disparagement. is the president-elect questioning the credibility of the intelligence agencies and is that going to lead to a strained
7:10 am
relationship and hurt morale? the question people want to know in the end is what the president-elect trying to do. >> charlie, president-elect trump has great respect for the intelligence community. we're happy the top intelligence officials will be at trump tower to give their own briefing to the president-elect. what's disappointing is having leaks in the media before we actually have a report on the alleged hacking. it's been very confounding to us and certainly to the president-elect why this report, if it wasn't prepared until yesterday, why operatives were expelled, why punishment preceded actual conclusions. i would remind us all what happened in yesterday's hearing. clapper and rogers also admitted this country is way behind the secure f when it comes to cyber security. they also made clear that, and we saw an fbi report yesterday to cnn that the fbi asked the dnc to take a look at its server and they were rebuffed. the dnc refused to do that.
7:11 am
so that's why they were hacked. one thing i want to say, let's not confuse the two things, the respect for the intelligence community and the intelligence and security team the president-elect 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-elect see the information. but the president himself just received the report this week. >> does his intelligence officials believe that the russians did not hack? >> does his intelligence officials believe that? >> those advising him, do they believe the russians are not behind the hacking? >> 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 cyber security is a very serious issue to this administration. at the same time let's wait until the president-elect receives the briefing of the material. >> he didn't wait to receive the briefing before he expressed
7:12 am
doubt about the conclusions. >> part of that is because, as you know, maybe not on this tv set, 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 michigan. it's unfair and it is unproven and it will be unproven, that what russia did or did not do affected the election results. 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 exploration. why would russia want -- >> he's said favorable things about vladimir putin and also favored what julian assange has said. that didn't come from leaks, that came from donald trump's tweet. >> i don't think he's putting one above the other.
7:13 am
i think he's saying let's look at all the information together. that's why we had hearings yesterday on capitol hill. that's why president obama himself is just receiving this information. i think when people go back to president obama's legacy, they're not going to look at it as i was a tough guy against vladimir putin because i expelled 35 russians operatives in the waning days. why didn't obama said to president putin, quote, knock it off. >> why did donald trump speak out before he got the report on twitter? >> what he's saying is he can't agree with the rush to judgment that's occurring in the press. >> this isn't a rush to judgment in the press. this is, in fact, the testimony of intelligence officials to congress yesterday, not a rush by the press. >> you're absolutely right. i agree with you. it happened yesterday. why last week did the president expel these operatives. why for weeks have the clintons being grasping at anything they can to explain her disastrous
7:14 am
loss? >> what's necessary to believe that what the intelligence officials believe that the rukss 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 from any government. >> if they find evidence of that, what will they do? >> we'll see. he gets the briefing today. i don't want to do what others have done, which is presuppose a result and a conclusion and then the action. but respect him in this way, he'll get the information. then he'll take action. >> can i ask you a quick question? i understand now that the president-elect is asking congress and taxpayers to pay for the wall, not mexico. is he going back on a campaign promise? >> no. what we understand is nothings has changed from our perspective. congress is taking it on themselves to explore different options to pay for the all. obviously we respect federalism. if congress is trying to find different ways to fund this
7:15 am
project that is a top priority of president trump, they should do that. >> states from carolina to the -- more than 40 states under winter related advisories or warnings. a state of emergency is declared in alabama and georgia where several inches of snow are expected. if parts of the sierra nevada it's been snowing non-stop since tuesday. california's mammoth mountain is under up to seven feet of new snow. new york's snowbelt off lake ontario saw whiteout conditions with more than two feet falling in the area. katie alexander is outside buffalo elementary school where 17 students spent most of the night. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the school district sent out a message last night saying it was only expecting three to six inches and that's why it didn't cancel classes. you can see a lot more than that pounded this area, leaving some students stranded here until just a few hours ago.
7:16 am
the lake-effect snow brought the great lakes region to a grinding halt yesterday as more than two feet fell on parts of western new york. >> there's my car. >> reporter: the storm buried vehicles and left people unable to drive through unplowed streets. >> welcome to buffalo. >> reporter: some were stuck for more than five hours trying to get home. >> well, i started at 4:00, but i've got a guy who is going to go ahead of me and help plow me through. >> reporter: dozens of students stuck in elementary school for hours after classes end. in orchard park the students finally road out on a school bus about midnight. in west seneca, buses stopped running, forcing parents to come pick up their kids. at allen dale elementary, 17 students stayed until early this morning. >> it's buffalo weather. it's unpredictable. as long as my kid's safety is first at hand, that's all that matters. >> reporter: several schools in this area are closed today,
7:17 am
including all the schools in the west seneca central school district. more snow is expected in the coming days. >> thank you very much, katie. the family of a mandatory toured in chicago during a live facebook stream is now speaking out about his ordeal. relatives say the victim is doing as well as can be expected and they are asking for privacy. investigators believe that four people attacked him partly because of his race and partly because of his mental disability. dean reynolds is at chicago's courthouse where the suspects face charges including hate crimes and aggravated kidnapping. dean, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the four suspects will be here at the cook county courthouse later today for a bond hearing. one of them was actually a some-time friend of the victim. now a word of warning. what you're about to see could be difficult to watch. in a new video of the assault, the young man is forced to drink out of a toilet.
7:18 am
the victim who is white is also seen being kicked, choked and cut. all of it streamed live on facebook. the suspects are sisters brittany and taneshia covington and their friends jordan hill and tesfaye cooper. according to police, they were actually texting the victim's parents during his roughly five-hour ordeal suggesting a possible extortion attempt. the victim's brother-in-law, david boyd. >> trying to stick together as a family. >> just happy he's home. >> reporter: the victim's parents reported him missing monday when he failed to return from a sleepover with jordan hill, his former school mate. police say the victim traveled willingly with hill to chicago, ending up at the sister's apartment on tuesday. >> the victim tells us he got into a play fight with jordan and it'sing lated from there. two female offenders you can see on video, you can see they're smoking cigars which we presume to be blunts.
7:19 am
they then getting a vaeted at him. that's when they tie him up. he finally escaped when the women left to confront a downstairs neighbor who was threatening to call the police. now, all four suspects have given statements to investigators admitting their roles in the tormenting and beating of their victim whose relatives say they are overwhelmed by the attention and greatly appreciate all of the support they've received. >> they've certainly got a lot of support. thank you very much. it's gratifying to see how everybody is responding to this. the fact that it could be streamed on facebook live, that's very disturbing, the way they were laughing it and caccing about it. it bothers anyone with a heart. despicable and disgusting. thank you again, dean. the parents of a journalist killed by isis give their first tv interview. ahead in a preview of sunday's 60 minutes, how they were

7:34 am
they spoke to him in the frustration with the u.s. government's no ransom policy. >> i am stephen joel sotloff. i'm sure you know exactly who i am by now and why i'm appearing before you. >> stephen joel sotloff was beheaded by isis. his execution on september 2nd, 2014, was seen around the world on a video. >> did you ever watch it? >> i have viewed stephen's body with his head on his chest. >> i had to see that because i needed to be sure that that was him. >> reporter: stephen 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 called his dad.
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 touch with one of his colleague's. >> that's ominous. >> reporter: he didn't hear from his son, not just for four days, it was four excruciating months. 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 liss release. >> $137 million. >> what was your reaction? >> the reaction is how the hell are we going to get this money together. >> reporter: they thought the u.s. government would help them. they were bewildered and infuriated when they say they met a stonewall. the u.s. policy forbidding the paying of ransom. >> lesley stahl is with us and
7:36 am
joins us at the table. so chilling to hear the parents say they saw his body with his head on top of his body. it can't imagine what that must be like for the parents. >> it was even horrible to have to ask them. >> what was the reaction when they found out 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 and raise the money themselves, but, one, they were afraid the government would come after them. two, how are they going to raise that much money. >> how has the policy been changed? >> the government now has a policy of not prosecuting, and they coordinate more with the families, but they still do not pay ran dom as a government. >> do most governments pay ransom? >> a lot of the european -- the united kingdom doesn't, but most
7:37 am
european governments do. what was so horrible in this situation is that stephen was in a room with all the other western hostages, and watched the others be set free because their governments paid and paid very little. in one case -- i have a cheat sheet here, i think it was spain only paid $7 million. they were able to negotiate it way down. then the americans just sat there and watched. >> does israel pay ransom? >> that i don't know. explain, i think, because the u.s. has been clear about this, about not paying ran some. and the reason is because they believe, our government believes it would encourage them to take more hostages. >> that's the theory. also that it would fund terrorists to bomb and so forth. so there's two parts to the reason. there's a new study that says that -- it says terrorists take westerners as targets of opportunity. they don't know if they're
7:38 am
american, don't know if they're spanish, they don't know if their governments pay ransom or not. so the study says that -- it refutes this theory, that if you pay ransom, you're fueling the taking of more. >> are they totally convinced if the ransom had been paid, that stephen would have been freed? >> yes. they believe that, because they watch what happened to the europeans. >> that's tough. >> very tough. it's chilling and it's powerful. these families now, by giving interviews are working to change this policy because they believe it so fervently. >> thank you very much, leslie. you can see the full report on sunday on "60 minutes" including the assistant to the president for counterterrorism who says some white house officials feel they failed the families of hostages. the controversial killer whale show at seaworld in california will stop this weekend. >> even in the rain, the show must go on here at seaworld. but not for much longer, at

good morning to our viewers in the west. guess what, it's friday, january 6th, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this mornin morning". whoo is right, norah. u.s. intelligence leaders telling president-elect trump russia did hack the election. plus, david sanger, what to look for after today's meeting with mr. trump. first here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> both sides will be watching closely to see if mr. trump's views on russia change after that high-profile briefing. >> u.s. intelligence officials are heading into this, united in their belief that russians meddled in the u.s. election. >> he didn't wait to receive the briefing before he expressed doubt about the conclusion.
8:01 am
>> people want a lot of america to believe that russian hacking influenced the election results. vladimir putin did not discourage hillary clinton from competing in wisconsin. the four suspects will appear at the cook county courthouse for a bond hearing. one of them was a sometimes friend of the victim. school districts only expecting about 3 to 6". that's why they didn't cancel classes. but you can see a lot more than that pound this had area. former "american idol" runner-up bo bice says he was called white boy at popeyes. >> one of the three young ladies behind the corner says he's alreay got his, that white boy over there. >> that's shocking. that's the only appropriate time to call someone white boy is when you are instructing them to play that funky music. ♪ ♪ hey

>> 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 cia, fbi, dni's office and nsa are all expected to brief the president-elect. for weeks, mr. trump has openly questioned and mocked the intelligence community's conclusion that russia is behind the hacking. >> the director of national intelligence, james clapper, testified about the cyber attacks on capitol hill yesterday. clapper has served both republican and democratic administrations. when asked about russia's role in 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 with our election process than we've seen in this case.
8:03 am
this was a multi-faceted campaign. so the hacking was only one part of it, and it also entailed, you know, classical propaganda, disinformation, fake news. >> who actually is the benefactor of someone who is about to become commander in chief, trashing the intelligence community? >> i think there is an important distinction here between healthy skepticism, which policy makers -- to include policy maker number one -- should always have for 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 tensions will be
8:04 am
reduced. the president was briefed on the 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 cyber attacks for about a decade. the briefing will 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. president-elect kellyanne conway told us russia did not affect the election. >> it's unfair and unproven and it will be unproven that what russia did or did not do affected the election results. 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 exploration. why would russia want any of that? >> david sanger, national
8:05 am
security correspondent for "the new york times," is here. good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> russia tried to interfere with the election, but to kellyanne's point, did they influence the outcome of the election and tip it in donald trump's favor? >> i don't think anybody has shown any evidence that that has happened. one of the interesting things that is going on with the trump campaign right now or the trump transition is that they are confusing the fact set of whether the russians came in, what they did with the outcome. >> right. >> and they could easily be in a position, i think -- and maybe after today's briefing, but maybe not -- of saying okay, the russians were part of a group that came in, but it still didn't affect the outcome. i think so far they've conflated those two. >> that's the reason i asked that question in that way. the clinton campaign spent mormonny georgia and arizona than they spent in wisconsin and michigan. >> that's right. if the russians had stayed out,
8:06 am
you could have exactly the same result. but that doesn't necessarily mean that 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 unprecedented meeting today. >> it is and what's interesting is the drama has been added by the fact that the president-elect has said from the beginning that he doesn't believe that the russians were involved. and i thought it was interesting that through all of the 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. he will probably hear about intercepts, including some of those. he will probably hear about implants, which are what the nsa puts inside the networks of foreign countries so that they can see the datea. and if that data has shown up in russia, that would tell you that the russians had to get it somehow. >> what does this say about how donald trump will work with the intelligence community going
8:07 am
forward? he's already questioning their capabilities and abilities. >> it's an interesting question, gayle. i think there are two fundamental things. one, many people in the intel community right now feel that their own integrity has been questioned and that's not a great way to start. the second is they wonder whether or not president-elect trump wants to hear the fact base first and wants to come to conclusion or whether he has come to a set of conclusions and wants to hear facts that fit them? >> in fact, they suggested that cia has become politicized, some people around trump have said that. >> if there's a critique of the intelligence community that comes out of this experience, i don't think it's that they rush to any conclusions. it's that they move too slowly. we know that the first evidence that they've 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
and the president said that he didn't hear about anything until early summer. >> why is the president -- >> elect. >> the president-elect so reluctant to accept what the intelligence agencies are saying? simply because he hasn't seen it? >> i assume they've given him some earlier version. 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 certainly is what you hear from the people around him. and i think the question is, can they separate him today from that conclusion and the facts? you know what? it may not have simply been the russians that got in. the dnc was so wide open you can imagine other groups as well. >> what do you make of reports that the russians were celebrating donald trump's victory and kellyanne conway telling us today, why would the russians want him to win? >> for one thing, the russians had a think about hillary
8:09 am
clinton, going back to their thinking that she messed around in their 2011 elections. the second is it's not clear to us from the reporting we did for a piece we were talking about a few weeks ago, whether these intercepts of celebration were celebration that their operation had won or celebration that hillary clinton had lost. and those are two different things. >> beyond hillary clinton, we do know vladimir putin has said the relationship is really bad with the united states and it has to do with the obama administration, not some future. >> right. and maybe mr. trump believes that this report is getting in the way of his effort to rebuild that relationship. >> really interesting. i have a feeling david sanger will be back. >> yes. you're a good talker. >> yes, you are. >> gives a lot of good information. >> thank you. >> thank you. great to be here. >> sunday "face the nation," former acting cia director mike morell. and mitch mcconnell, reince

8:18 am
>> it felt good to know that 12 other people believed us. they knew what we knew, that he did it. >> but now almost 25 years later, tippy and jeanette will once again come face-to-face with their mother's convicted killer at his parole hearing. >> my mother didn't get a second chance. why should he. >> dennis ott has always maintained his innocence and that could be a sticking point at his hearing. while inmates don't have to show remorse to show parole, it might help. ott spoke with us by phone from salah knows state prison in california. >> you know what, dennis? it almost seems like it would be easier for certainly jeanette and tippy and certain will i for you if you just admitted it. >> it's not at that i haven't thought about it, but that's not true. i didn't kill her. i'm not going to say i did. >> he deserves to rot and die in prison, plain and simple.

he took everything from us, and i want to take everything away from him now. >> tracy smith joins us now from los angeles. e. cy, good morning to you. >> your story focuses on what happened after the trial. why do that? >> that's right. so often as you know, "48 hours" ends with sentencing but clearly that's not the case for those involved in the case, especially if there's a possibility for parole. the sisters told us they feel like they're serving a life sentence because they have to relive their mother's murder every time there's a hearing and now there's a hearing about every two years for them. as soon is that recover from one, that i have to prepare for another. >> what are the chances he'll be set free? >> they're actually pretty good. he's been what they call a model prisoner and he's over 60 years
