china's government. the train, possibly carrying a high level north korea official, left the city early this morning. china shares a border with north korea and is a traditional ally. ben tracy is in beijing with what unfolded. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. so china's foreign ministry says it has no information as to whether or not kim jong-un was here. but china's sensors have been scrubbing any speculation about his visit off of social media. so that tells you something. if kim onjong-un did come here it would be the first time since taking over in 2011. the arrival of this train caught by japanese media was the first sign somebody important was coming to town. the green cars with yellow stripes look just like the bulletproof train kim jong-un's father kim jong-il used when his travel add broed abroad. then video of a large motorcade and an honor guard apparently welcoming the mystery guest. a swarm of police kept prying
7:09 am
eyes away. china's official state guest house is about five blocks down this street and that's where visiting heads of state typically stay. and despite the fact police are letting anybody walk down the sidewalk, they won't let journalists anywhere near it. a visit by kim jong-un would be significant because he and chinese president xi jinping have never met. china has grown impatient with kim's relentless nuclear ambitions. and enforced tough international sanctions on the ra jeegime. straining the two country's once close relationship. now with kim jong-un planning to meet south korean president moon jay in and president trump at summits this spring, he may have decided it was wise to first pay a visit to an old ally. >> sanctions released is something that the north korean regime really wants. >> reporter: but paul haenle, a former white house official on foreign affairs, says he may be making sure he has a seat at the

diplomatic table. >> china does not want to sit on the sidelines and be a spectator in terms of what's happening here. >> reporter: china is still north korea's main ally and lifeline. if it wants to relax sanctions on north korea that could make those summits between kim jong-un and president trump and south korea a lot more difficult this spring. anthony. >> ben tracy reporting on the mystery train in beijing, thanks, ben. russia promises to respond harshly to an unprecedented international rebuke. more than 20 countries announced yesterday they're expelling russian diplomats. the u.s. ordered 60 russians to leave and will close the russian consulate in seattle. the coordinated action is in response to russia's alleged use of a nerve agent to poison former spy sergei skripal. and his daughter in britain. charlie d'agata is in moscow. >> reporter: good morning. in addition to expulsion, the russians are considering which
7:11 am
u.s. consulate to close here. that's after the trump administration shut down a russian consulate in seattle, accusing diplomats of being intelligence agents so close to a boeing facility and naval base. it's fast becoming the most serious diplomatic crisis since the cold war. unprecedented numbers. an unexpectedly hard line from a trump administration that's been reluctant to square off against president vladimir putin. a show of solidarity for britain after the assassination attempt of former double agent sergei skripal and his daughter in sales bury, england, three weeks ago. retaliation for what british secretary boris johnson calls unacceptable behavior from russia. >> it manifests itself across the globe from syria to salisbury and people have had enough of it. >> reporter: a statement seen as retribution for a litany of

7:13 am
the adult film star who claimed she had sex with president trump in 2006 is now suing his personal lawyer. stormy daniels described the alleged relationship on sunday's "60 minutes" and said she was threatened in order to keep it quiet back in 2011. daniels has added attorney michael cohen to an existing lawsuit. yesterday, after his lawyer demanded an apology. major garrett is at the white house, where the president is still not talking about this. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president trump left it to a spokesman and the lawyer of his lawyer to explain a $130,000 payment about a week and a half before the 2016 election to stormy daniels. the explanation, it was business. nothing personal. >> the president strongly, clearly and has consistently denied these underlying claims. >> reporter: deputy press secretary raj shah dismissed the statements to "60 minutes" about the alleged 2006 affair.
7:14 am
>> you had sex with him? >> yes. >> reporter: shah was asked why, if the affair never happened, did cohen pay daniels? >> i would have michael cohen address any specifics regarding this agreement you're referring to. but look, false charges are settled out of court all the time and this is nothing outside the ordinary. >> reporter: cohen's lawyer david schwartz says daniels was paid to protect the trump family business, not to defuse a possibly explosive campaign issue. >> he kept her to protect business. >> reporter: he sued on monday for defamation, accusing him of insinuating she was lying. >> i'm not okay with being made out to be a liar. >> reporter: besides a vague fake news tweet monday morning, president trump has said nothing about daniels or former playboy playmate karen mcdougal who, last week, disclosed an alleged ten-month affair in 2006 and 2007 with mr. trump. both women said sex was consensual. unlike 16 women who have leveled accusations against the
7:15 am
president. >> every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. total fabrication. >> reporter: neither daniels, nor mcdougal, accuse mr. trump of harassment or abuse. the president, like millions of other americans, watched the "60 minutes" interview. according to "the washington post," has since told associates daniels wasn't his type. those who remember conversations with mr. trump during the campaign remember him denying the affair but no no way indicating daniels couldn't have been his type. norah. >> all right, major, thank you very much. former president jimmy carter calls president trump's choice for his new national security adviser his worst mistake since taking office. the 39th president brought up john bolton's appointment when we sat down for an interview yesterday. do you have faith in president >> well, as i say, i've been concerned at some of the things he's decided. i think his last choice for
7:16 am
national security adviser was ill advised. i think john bolton has been the worst mistake he's made. he's advocated going to war preemptively against north korea, against iraq, against iran even. and so i think that that is particularly ill advised because the national security adviser, i know from experience, is the most listened to advice that the president gets. but i still think our country -- >> the new adviser has advocated a preemptive strike in north korea. what would that do? >> that would be a total disaster. we could precipitate a nuclear war. which would be horribly destructive. >> we're going to hear more from former president jimmy carter in our next hour. we talk to him about president trump's decision to meet with north korea's leader and his new book, "faith, a journey for
7:17 am
all," being released today. it's published by simon and schuster, a division of cbs news. i also talked to him about stormy daniels, so we'll have that as well coming up. >> looking forward to that. more protests and community meetings with lawmakers are planned in sacramento today over the police shooting death of stephon clark. john blackstone is at sacramento city hall with more on this story. john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, one question certain to come up when the city council holds a public meeting on clark's shooting here at city hall today is why did officers turn off the audio on their body cams minutes after clark was shot? now, clark's grandmother yesterday described what she heard in her backyard. >> please give us justice. >> reporter: stephon clark's grandmother stood with national civil rights leaders monday and said she feared for her own safety when she heard gunfire behind her house.
7:18 am
>> my granddaughter was on the couch asleep. she's only 7 years old. >> reporter: her grandson was hilled in a hail of gunfire captured on police body cam video. >> show me your hands. >> they didn't have to shoot him. >> reporter: minutes after the shooting, officers put their body cameras on mute. >> okay, mute. >> reporter: so their conversations were not recorded. >> that has raised suspicions. >> reporter: sacramento mayor daryl steinberg says he wants to know why. are there any circumstances under the training protocols that make that justified? >> reporter: clark had been spotted by a sheriff's helicopter and was suspected of breaking car windows in the area. two patrol officers pursued him. and within seconds of reaching him, opened fire. [ gunfire ] they feared he had a gun in his hand. it was only a cell phone. >> this is reminiscent of so many police shootings.
7:19 am
>> reporter: civil rights attorney ben crump who previously worked with families of shooting victims trayvon martin and michael brown is now representing the stephon clark family. >> and we will fight for stephon. until we get justice for stephon. >> reporter: crump also said there would be an independent awe to awe topsy on clark's body. his f high pressure is taking ahold of california. this is why. your morning looks like this, nice clear conditions out there. it's going to be a pretty warm, comfortable kind of day. you can see that high pressure system right off the coast. as it gets closer and closer to the states, we will start to see our temperatures rise even more. by the time we get to thursday, we're looking at 80s across the bay area. for today, low to mid-70s for most of us. the next 7 days looks very dry.
