7:07 am
obtained by cbs news paint a picture of a troubled young man and a mother who tried to prevent him from spiraling out of control. they also show law enforcement and social services had opportunities to intervene. in september 2016, nikolas cruz and his mother linda received a visit from florida's department of children and families, after allegation of medical neglect. the investigator learned cruz suffered from depression, adhd and autism, cut his arms in a snapchat post and once plastered a racist message on his backpack. cruz even says he plans to go out and buy a gun. dcf closed the investigation after finding no evidence cruz was being mistreated. the dcs secretary said mental health services and supports were in place when this investigation closed. >> they tried to make him part of the family. they wanted him to feel that way. >> reporter: attorney jim lewis represents the family that took cruz in after his mother's death in november.
7:08 am
>> they have no clue something like this was ever going to happen. they never would have taken him in and allowed him in their house. >> reporter: broward county sheriff department records show linda cruz summoned deputies to her home 39 times since 2011. in 2013, she told police nikolas was throwing objects across the room. the next year, she claimed he punched a hole in the wall. sheriff scott israel told a local tv station his deputies didn't have many options. >> this isn't science fiction. we're not allowed to arrest on what a person thinks about on crimes. >> he said, i'm going to kill you, i'm going to hurt your family. >> reporter: junior dana craig says she told school security about threats cruz made against her after she advised cruz's then girlfriend to leave him. >> these things were being reported. when people were being targeted. they could have done more. >> reporter: the fbi has also apologized for mishandling a tip it received in january from someone who was concerned about cruz, his ownership of guns and the potential of committing a
7:09 am
school shooting. that tip never made it to fbi agents in the field. on average, the fbi tip line received about 2,100 tips a day. >> the more you hear, the more disturbing it is. thank you, manuel. >> one of the missed warning signs is important. because of that self-mutilation, harm to ones self, he could have been involuntarily committed. had he been involuntarily committed, he would not have been able to purchase a gun. >> you say see something, say something. many people did and nothing happened. very tragic story. there will be funerals today for two more shooting victims, 14-year-old alaina petty and 15-year-old luke hoyer. services will be held for five more victims later this week. 14 students and 3 adults were killed in wednesday's shooting. the community honored 14-year-old alex schacter, 14-year-old amy guttenberg

7:11 am
shooter. they are spending too much time trying to prove russian collusion with the trump campaign. there is no collusion. errol barnett is traveling with the president and joins us from west palm beach. errol, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. on twitter, president trump appeared to be attacking everyone but russia, which the special counsel is accusing of waging information warfare against the u.s. this morning for the first time, the white house says the president is opened to improving the background check system, but it's mr. trump's tweets about the fbi and the school shooting here in florida attracting the most attention. >> the reality of it is there are two separate issues. the president should be staying out of law enforcement business. >> reporter: republicans responded to president trump's criticism of the fbi after he seemed to link the parkland shooting with the russia probe. in a flurry of tweets, the president criticized democrats for using russia as an election excuse. he called claims of campaign collusion a hoax. and said that the russia investigations were creating chaos in the u.s.
7:12 am
>> russia's clearly tried to advance their agenda into the united states. >> reporter: the president's outburst followed special counsel robert mueller's indictment friday against 13 russians for using social media to disrupt the u.s. election. >> as you can see with the fbi indictment, the evidence is now really incontrovertible. >> reporter: the president's national security adviser, h.r. mcmaster, applauded mueller's efforts. but president trump shot back at his aide online, saying, quote, general mcmaster forgot to say that the results of the 2016 election were not impacted or changed by the russians. now, we should note, mueller's charges made no judgment on whether russian interference swung the election, but it did say russia's efforts were designed to bolster mr. trump's candidacy. >> thank you very much, errol. this morning, the kremlin says there's no significant evidence that russia meddled in the election. the comments come as we learn more about russia's so-called troll factory that generated
7:13 am
fake social media posts. the special counsel says they were intended to undermine hillary clinton while supporting her opponents including donald trump. elizabeth palmer is outside the building in st. petersburg thought to be the center of the russian influence operation. elizabeth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this rather ordinary-looking office building behind me was the headquarters of the troll factory, the by now infamous internet research agency named in the indictment. which also says it was controlled by a kremlin insider and oligarch called evgeny prigozhin. that's him with president bush during a state visit here in st. petersburg in 2002. several young activists filmed video inside the internet research agency. we spoke to one of them,
7:14 am
lyudmila savchuk. she says she was shocked by the scale of the operation. as for the operation that targeted the u.s., she says not only the 13 people named in the indictment should be prosecuted, but so should hundreds of others who were involved. the indictment says that in the run-up to the u.s. election, the internet research agency was working around the clock employing hundreds of people and spending more than $1 million a month. norah. >> all right, elizabeth palmer in st. petersburg, thank you. the cdc says there may be sign flu activity is leveling off but the threat is far from over. most severe flu season in nearly a decade has taken a heavy toll. it's killed 84 children. about three quarters of them were not vaccinated. our dr. tara narula shows us how the virus can quickly turn deadly. good morning. tell us why the flu can become so dangerous. >> a lot of people wonder how can it be deadly? one of the mechanisms is ma
7:15 am
kno pneumonia. either by the flu virus itself or the bacteria that get into the small air sacks, cause inflammation, fluid. you can no longer exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide there. you have low levels of oxygen in the blood. >> what about sepsis? >> sepsis is when you have an infection somewhat in the body. that infection can get in the bloodstream and spread throughout your body. your blood pressure drops. you don't profuse your body with blood. you don't get it to critical organs. that can cause tissue damage, organ failure and death very quickly. >> i know you say sometimes with the flu, it's almost like the virus or your body can have a reaction against your own body. >> one of the thinking is for young people healthy who suddenly died from the flu. your body releases chemical messengers as part of the defense system. the problem is for some people, we don't know why, their reaction is too much. it's an overwhelming immune
7:16 am
reaction. it causes damage to healthy tissue. now you have almost like collateral damage in a war. and those healthy tissues in the lungs can fill with flow wuid. >> if i'm sick, how do i know when i should take action? >> shortness of breath, rapid breathing, rapid heart beat, lethargy, confusion, you're getting better and suddenly you get worse. get to the hospital quickly. >> is it getting any better? is it leveling off, as they say? >> we think it may be. but we still know there's time to get the vaccine. if you haven't gotten it. even though the effectiveness is about 36% overall against -- in this flu season, in children, six months to eight years, for age 3 and 2, it was about 59% affected. so please get the vaccine. >> it's worth it, yes, thank you, dr. taraure narula. the u.s. is struggling to keep up in the medal race at the winter olympics. they're one medal behind the

finals. the u.s. women's hockey team absolutely crushed finland 5-0 and now moves on to the gold medal game later this week. >> she is down to her last jump. >> reporter: and we got our first look at a new olympic sport, snow board big air. three u.s. boarders, including gold medalist jamie anderson, advanced to the finals. but the olympic are now over for this russian curler. he won a bronze medal but has tested positive for a banned substance. it's a big setback for russia's hopes to rebound from its doping scandal, which led to most of its athletes being banned from these games. as you might imagine, doping is not something that is normally associated with the curling world. the head of russia's curling federation says that it is possible his athlete's food or drink had been spiked with a banned substance. gayle. >> all right, ben tracy, thanks.
7:19 am

kids. we have more great kids. we have 14 great kids who needed protection that we couldn't give them. i lost three kids in my class. i couldn't help them. i shouldn't have had to. it's one of those things that as a lifelong gun owner and hunter, i'm not saying we should stop the second amendment. i'm not saying we should take guns away from people. there's no point to somebody having an ar-15, and if somebody wants to argue with me on that, that's cool. if you want an ar15, we'll go to the range. i get to shoot at you, i get to graze you with a bullet and catch you with fragments like i did, and then after that, if you still wanted to buy said weapon, cool. then i'll have you talk to a psychologist. that gun is just designed to kill people. the round itself is unstable and tumbles. that's not normal. that's in controversy of the geneva convention or a way around it. people need to know that and realize, especially the

the document alleges russians posed as americans and used social media to influence the vote. two former trump associates were imp kated in the propose last year. paula reid is following the developments. good morning, palla. >> good morning. >> the dust settled since friday, what do the indictments mean? what's the most important thing to take away from this? >> this is different from the indictments and charges we have seen against others because no one here is likely to go to jail. highly unlikely the russian government extradites their own citizens to face the charges. legally speaking, the significance of this indictment is that it lays oh in specific details how the russians meddled in these elections and what crimes were committed under u.s. law, because when you say they meddled, what exactly does that mean? here robert mueller lays it out specifically. sometimes it's laying out messages on social media, engaging americans to engage in
8:09 am
political activities or set up rallies. >> this is at the heart of the what he was tasked to do. when you look at it, and it surprises everybody, do you see tip of the iceberg or iceberg in what more he has to do? >> tip of the iceberg. he's laying the ground work here, explaining to the american people what happened, and they'll continue to investigate whether or not any americans knowingly participated in this. the deputy attorney general was out of it. he said there's no evidence in this indictment that any americans knowingly participated in this. we know from the indictment that the russians did work with americans. they paid people to do this. the big question now for investigators is, did anyone knowingly participate? >> well, the president took to twitter saying, basically, he's been cleared, that he's out of the clear. has he been cleared? >> he's not been cleared. he also tweeted this began before his campaign the that's true. there's no evidence or claim of collusion in this specific indictment, but this is one of many, and we know from sources
8:10 am
that the investigation continues, specifically into whether there were financial transactions between the trump campaign and russia and question of obstruction of justice. last week, investigators were talking again to steve bannon, trump's legal team and former spokesman. investigation continues. nobody's in the clear. >> the news this week is rick gates was a business partner of paul, likely to enter a plea deal. what does that mean in terms of his handing over information to the special counsel? >> really turns up the heat on paul maniford, giving no indication he's expected to cooperate. one is expected to provide information about him, they were charged together and co-defendants, all part of the strategy because, ultimately, they want maniford to cooperate and provide information on people higher up in the food chain. that's really the goal. this is a way to turn up the
8:11 am
heat. >> a lot of conversation about robert mueller keeping this top secret. none of this leaked out, which is extraordinary when you can be sold out for a bag of chips and a coke. >> absolutely. if i could get this information for a bag of chip and a coke, i would do that. this is a man full of secrets and surprises. a lot of these charges are the indictment on friday came out of nowhere, people did not know. one way he does that is keeps all the teams in little silos, in little groups so if anything leaks out, he knows where it came from. >> thank you very much, paula. secretary of state tillerson said the united states is using large sticks to respond to the north korean threat. on "60 minutes" he said efforts continue until the first bomb drops. he asked tillerson about reported disparaging remark about the president. >> did you call the president a mor moron? >> i'm not going to dignify the question. we have so many bigger issues we
