some members of the caravan. >> make no mistake about it, these families are victims. a massive wildfire continues to rip through arizona. >> the sheriff office is knocking on the door, get out, grab the kids, run. >> a huge fire in a high-rise in brazil, a large portion of the building collapsing in a blast. >> i just love you so much. >> and star on the hollywood walk of fame. >> don't touch me. >> and all that matters kim jong-un softening his tones telling the south koreans i would not shoot nuclear weapons. >> seems like a straight shooter. ask all the murdered relatives. on "cbs this morning." >> you break news all the time, and there's news i'd love for you to break for us tonight. >> yes. i have breaking personal news. my husband and i will be welcoming a baby in september, a baby boy. >> we have a onesie.
7:03 am
get some sleep now. >> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota, let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning," a little local news. >> that's right. >> national news. >> announcing a booking in advance. >> that's true. >> gayle king is off, so alex wagner is with us. >> good to be with you. president trump's deadline for the iran nuclear deadline is 11 days away, and israel is pushing him to scrap the agreement. benjamin netanyahu went on prime time tv in israel to say, quote, iran lied," and showed alleged documents from iran's nuclear program before it signed the deem three years ago. >> iran's foreign minister on twitter writing, quote, the boy who can't stop crying wolf is at it again. the white house spokesman says
7:04 am
this is new and compelling details about iran's efforts to deliver nuclear deliverable weapons. our senior foreign affairs correspondent is here. march great, good morning. >> they believe iran kept the nuclear program frozen since the 2015 agreement, but yesterday, israel revealed they obtained new details about the scope and scale of iran's intent to build a weapon. >> incriminating blueprints. >> reporter: next to intelligence seized by spies in a warehouse in teheran benjamin netanyahu says it proves they lied about the efforts to build a nuclear weapon. >> even after the deal, iran continued to preserve and expand the nuclear weapons for future use. >> reporter: benjamin netanyahu wants the u.s. to pull out of the 2015 deal, which froze iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief. last week, the leaders of france and germany lobbied president trump to stick with it rather
7:05 am
than tear up the deal as promised on the campaign trail. >> so if anything's prichb right what israel did today with the news conference -- >> reporter: the president has to make a decision by may 12th, and yesterday, the president may instead choose a third option, craft a new version of the agreement. >> and order before the 12th we'll make a decision. that doesn't mean we won't negotiate. >> reporter: most of the intelligence benjamin netanyahu cited was before the 2015 deal had been signed, and he did not present any evidence that iran had violated it. speaking to reporters on board his plane, secretary of state mike pompeo said details show that iran has not been honest about the nature of its past nuclear research. >> this will, i think, spell out the scope and scale of the program they undertook there. >> reporter: and said so far there does not appear to be evidence to contradict testimony last month that iran has been faithful to the deal. >> i've seen no evidence they are not in compliance today. >> reporter: but it contradicts
7:06 am
iranian foreign minister's claim on "face the nation" that iran's past nuclear program had been for peaceful purposes. >> iran was never racing towards a bomb and would not race towards a bomb. >> reporter: this morning, the iaea, the u.n.'s nuclear watchdog, said they have, quote, no credible indications of activity in iran of a nuclear device since 2009. in other words, we already knew this. >> right. and given the fact that policymakers base their policy on the idea that iran was lying, who is this for? was this an audience of one in donald trump to convince him or backing for what he might do in. >> a bit of both because he has been lobbied hard by our allies and people who are in this deal. israel, remember, is not a cig story, and prime minister benjamin netanyahu has always been against it, they want the u.s. being more muscular in the region, look at military options
7:07 am
rather than a diplomatic deal. but it was english presentation, multimedia, appealed to the things that the president likes in these presentations. he used tv clips as well. so it spoke to the president's language and, in some ways, may provide cover for a slight of hand where they do not fully blow up the deal but perhaps the president gets to say he's going to fix it. >> do you think there's a relationship between fixing, doing whatever happens in the iran deal and this emerging agreement, nonagreement, whatever, with north korea? >> well, the trump administration pushes back hard against that because, yes, all partners in this deal say how can we partner again when you break your word? how can anyone agree to sign on if you're going to do that? but at the same time, the administration says this is totally different. that north korea really is concerned about maintaining kim jong-un's power, and if he gets a high enough price, it's good enough for them, but the president also thinks this has bolstered his argument if you
7:08 am
push hard you get the other side to agree to a new term, a new deal, but so far, iran said no takers here. >> margaret, thank you, and congratulations, mama. >> thank you, thank you. new viewer. growing our audience. >> each one counts. >> exactly. earlier this morning, we spoke to former secretary of state condoleezza rice about isra israel's claim and how to respond. we asked if she saw evidence if iran violated that 2015 accord. >> first of all, the reason that we have been so concerned about iran is that we know that they lie and cheat about their nuclear weapons program, and they've done that going back in the early 2000s. i have not seen the entire dossier, but i suspect it's simply a reenforcement of what we've always known, that the iranians were secretly developing nuclear weapons at secret sites. it does, perhaps, speak to the 2015 agreement in the following way. you have to worry about
7:09 am
verification with the iranians, and the verification measures in the 2015 agreement were not strong. they had long periods of notification, long periods of dispute resolution, and when you know that a country lies about the nuclear weapons, a verification regime that is weak is really problematic. >> various members of the trump administration testified publicly to congress that there's no proof that iran is violating the 2015 accord. what is the damage if president trump withdraws from that accord? >> well, let me say, nora, i wouldn't have signed the agreement to begin with. i said that before. it was a weak agreement, particularly on verification. it allows iran to break out after a specific period of time. i probably would have stayed in for alliance management reasons more than anything else. i don't think that it is the end of the world if the administration leaves the agreement. now, i'm hoping that the conversations the president had,
7:10 am
for instance, with president macron of france, suggests that we can approve the agreement, and, perhaps, that could be done, this could go, but the administration's been worried about the agreement from the very beginning, and there's reason to be worried about this agreement. >> and we'll bring you more of the conversation with secretary rice in our next hour. she'll reflect on her new book "political risk," plus president trump's upcoming summit with the north korean dictator. president trump reportedly received several questions that special counsel mueller wants to ask the president. it centers on whether the president obstructs justice in connection with michael flynn, former fbi director, james comey, and jeff sessions. other questions focus on the trump campaign's contacts with russia. we are outside the special counsel's office in washington. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there are 44 questions according to the "new york times" that special counsel robert mueller
7:11 am
wants the president to answer, setting up a showdown if the meeting happens. mueller's team said he's not a target of the russian investigation, but these questions suggest they are interested in the president's actions. many of the questions special counsel mueller wants to ask the president involve james comey. what did you think about mr. comey's intelligence briefing january 6, 2017 about russian election interference, and regarding the decision to fire mr. comey, when was it made? why? who played a role? >> do you look at all of the people on the democratic side, not only the republican side, they were saying such terrible things about director comey. >> reporter: he wants to ask the president about the may 12th tweet writing james comey better hope there's no tapes of our conversations before leaking to the press. >> i hope there's tapes. >> reporter: the decision to fire him led to mueller's
7:12 am
appointment as special counsel and said the investigation is a witch hunt. mueller would like to ask the president about michael flynn who is now cooperating with the special counsel's investigation. >> i asked for his resignation. he respectfully gave it. >> reporter: flynn was fired 24 days into the trump administration for lying about his contacts with russian ambassado ambassadors. and muellermen wants to know wh he knew about the calls, why he fired flynn, and what efforts were made about a possible pardon. flynn said president trump asked him to drop the investigation. >> increasingly a concern on my part i interacted with him on things that touched him personally, touched the fbi, and me, our responsibilities, and that he might lie about them. >> reporter: the special counsel also wants to know if the president asked attorney general jeff sessions to protect him. the special counsel's office did not comment on this list of
7:13 am
questions. the president did just this morning, tweeting, it is disgraceful that the questions were leaked. john? >> thanks, and now we're looking forward to the answers. the first group of central american migrants who reached the u.s.-mexico border are being processed by border and custom protection agents. they said eight people started the process last night. it's a major milestone on a month-long journey. we are in tijuana, mexico with the issues the migrants face. >> reporter: good morning, the group that made it through the port of entry is meeting with border protection officials now. the caravan of my grants that are sleeping right behind me are sleeping just a few feet away from that entrance. they are hoping to be a part of a next wave of applications for asylum. dozens of people in the central american caravan raised their fists and cheered in celebration.
7:14 am
over news that some in their group are now making their case for asylum. the majority of the group of about 150 are still waiting to enter the pedestrian crossing to the u.s. she and her children are among those waiting. they fled gang violence in honduras. when they say, mommy, i can't take it, i don't blame them. i just tell them that we have to keep going, and we will come out on top. customs and border patrols typically process 50 cases per day at this port of entry, but agents say the number of people they are able to process depends on the complexity of their case. medical needs, translation requirements, and available detention space. caravans from central america made the trek since 2008, but they have mostly been ignored. this is the largest group so far, and the trump administration focused attention on their journey. during a visit to the california
7:15 am
border on monday, vice president pence said the group is proof immigration reform is needed, but acknowledged the u.s. will hear their cases. >> make no mistake about it. these families, often women and small children, are victims. they are victims of open border advocates who support and encourage them to take a long and dangerous trip. we'll process them under the laws of the country. >> reporter: the department of justice has filed criminal charges for illegally entering the united states against 11 immigrants, finding them five miles within the u.s. border. the people that are here and are still waiting, this has become an organic community, and they say it is proof that they are here to stay and they are in it for the long haul. >> all right, thank you. firefighters are searching for survivors after a high-rise building collapsed into a massive ball of fire overnight in brazil.
7:16 am

7:18 am
destroyed, but it's a question of how many. as for a cause, what's being investigated is some kind of manmade cause. the question is, was it arson or accident. >> david, thanks. former president george herbert walker bush is in the hospital to regain strength. the family spokesperson said the 93-year-old is in great spirits and looking forward to going home. he's been treated for an infection that spread to his blood. mr. bush was ad mitted to houston methodist hospital last week one day after attending the funeral of his wife, barbara bush, former first lady. scary study on brain trauma could be devastating for youth football. evidence the youngest players on the field could be at greater this is the mount vaca view. never the same. here's a look at what we're dealing with. we do have remnants of some moisture to the east of us. some sierra snowfall came down

hit. >> could look into his eyes, and he wasn't the same person. and just you could see that inside he knew he was hurting, and he was struggling. that was really hard to deal with as a sibling just seeing that happen and not knowing what to do. >> reporter: james suffered from short-term memory and vision loss and ocd. he attempted suicide just three months after the hit and was committed into a mental institution for a month. nearly a year later, he took his own life. >> he was happy, a friendly kid, compassionate kid. >> reporter: you think this is all because of football? >> i know it was. >> reporter: a new study published in "annals of neurology" looked at the brains of 246 deceased amateur and professional football players. 211 of them had the degenerative brain disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy or cte which can be caused by repetitive hits to the head. the study showed kids who began playing tackle football before the age of 12 began showing cognitive and emotional symptoms

7:45 am
each year earlier kids begin pplaying football, they could begin to experience symptoms associated with cte 2.5 years sooner. >> i thought it was telling that hearing from that neuroscientist about just how vulnerable the brain of a young child is. especially during the ages of 8 and 10. i can only imagine the anguish these parents are going through. >> yeah. and what they tell you is, you know, just shake it off when you get your bell rung. that's not the way. >> that is changing. >> that's right. that is changing. next, a look at the morning's other headlines including new information on how an active ingredient in weed killer has been found in some common foods. and a new season of the hugely popular "fortnite: battle royale" is affecting kids and parents having trouble getting them to go to bed at night.

good morning to our viewers in the west. it's tuesday, may 1st, 2018, welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead, israel's ambassador to the u.s. on the iran nuclear deal and documents that show the scope of iran's nuclear ambition. plus, a new season for the most popular video game, fortnight, became such a huge crowd pleaser and moneymaker, but first, today's eye opener at 8:00. president trump's deadline for the nuclear deal is days away, and israel pushes for him to scrap the agreement. >> israel claims they received new information about the intent to build a weapon. >> what's the damage when
8:01 am
president trump withdraws from the accord? >> i would have stayed in for alliance management reasons, but i don't think it's the enof the world if the administration leaves the agreement. there are 44 questions according to the "new york times" that special counsel robert mueller wants the president to answer. >> it's cold where we are, 39 degrees, but the fire is driven by the winds. that's the real factor and game changer here and why there's 0% containment. this 3-year-old after the coach said run home as fast as he could, he decided to do things his own way. >> he ran in slow motion. his dad tried to help him, he wanted absolutely none of that, get out of here, dad. >> he gets to home plate. >> oh! >> this morning's eye opener at 8:00 is presented by progressive.
8:02 am
iran is dismissing claims about the former nuclear program as, quote, a rehash of old allegations. the prime minister benjamin netanyahu says iran lied about previous efforts to build nuclear weapons. >> he made the charge in a prime time address on israeli tv less than two weeks before the deadline for president trump to decide whether to pull out of the iran nuclear deal. iran denies having a nuclear weapons program or denied, i should say, adding a nuclear weapons program before signing that agreement in 2015. most of the intelligence benjamin netanyahu cited was from before the deal was signed. he did not present any evidence that iran has violated that deal. senate foreign relations committee chairman bob corker said the u.s. knew about the past intentions when the nuclear deal was negotiated. >> we knew of the possible military dimensions of their program up until 2003. we've all known.
8:03 am
it's like the biggest known secret out there relative to their previous activities, so this was really not ground breaking. >> president trump said israel's intelligence shows he was 100% right to criticize the deal. he says the door is still open to renegotiating it. >> israel's ambassador to the united states joins us from washington. ambassador, good morning. >> good to be with you. >> you heard reactions, not groundbreaking, not anything new. your reply? >> it's certainly new. senator corker has not seen the information yet. we gave it to u.s. intelligence agencies a few weeks ago. it was much of the information we have, which is a significant amount of information that we, ourselves, our own intelligence agencies, u.s. intelligence agencies did not know that. secretary of state, mike pompeo, last week director of the cia, was new information so when senator corker receives the
8:04 am
information, he'll see how new it is and puts together a giant puzzle that we all had of iran's nuclear program. there were a lot of question marks about iran's program, and now we have exclamation points that they had a military nuclear program, and they had an intention, and they still have intention to ultimately build a nuclear weapon. >> mr. ambassador, it was israeli policy and u.s. policy that iran has been consistently lying about this weapons program, and so while there is new details and fascinating new tales about the nature and corners and crannies of that lie, the basic fact that everybody knew and was operating on the fact they were using is still something everybody knew? >> well, some people knew they were lying. not everybody. there were inspectors, nuclear experts who claim as of a few years ago iran didn't really have a nuclear program, hopefully it's news to them, but what was said before, this is not a violation of the deal is simply wrong. what this proves conclusively is
8:05 am
that iran falsified all of their reports to the international atomic energygency which was critical for them to move guard with the deal, and in addition to that, they have taken efforts since the deal to hide this nuclear weapons program. i referred to this deal what was presented yesterday about the nuclear deal as a smoking bomb. why did i say it? not just a smoking gun. you know, in the play, you see the smoking gun in the first act and goes off in the later act. what you see now is iran has all of these files in a vault. they did not destroy them, which they could have. they could have come clean about their program in the past. we have all these files in the vault, so when these nuclear restrictions are removed, they can then go to those vaults and use it to build a nuclear arsenal. that's why this deal is so dangerous. >> ambassador, the iranian program to design and build nuclear weapons are hardly secret and why president obama went forward with the iranian deal, but the key questions, do
8:06 am
israelis have any evidence that iran is currently not in compliance with the deal? >> i just told you the evidence. they are actively engaging to hide their nuclear military program. what you said, also, i dispute as well. why would iran keep these files? because they are going to use it in the future. now, a lot of people responded to what benjamin netanyahu said yesterday, hey, we knew all this, we knew that iran was lying, and that's why we need these restrictions in place. that would be a reasonable argument, norah, if the restrictions did not end, but they end in a few years. they are automatically going to be removed in a few years. i have to finish this one sentence. what i would hope that everybody who supported the deal before would do today is say, we need those restrictions to never end because iran clearly has the desire not just to build nuclear weapons in the past, which we knew, but to build nuclear weapons in the future because they are keeping it in the safe for safekeeping in the future when restrictions are removed.
8:07 am
>> that's the stated policy, if the u.s. pulls from the deal or deal changes, they restart their nuclear program. whether they call it a peaceful program or not, but that's their stated policy. is that a surprise to anybody that that would restart this program if the deal fell apart? >> well, they may decide to restart their program, but we're not concerned that they are going to break out to a bomb. the big danger of the deal, and this is not something israel said today, but something the prime minister said three years ago in congress. the danger is not that iran is going to get to a single nuclear bomb by violating the deal. le biggest danger of this deal is they can get to an entire arsenal by keeping the deal when all of these restrictions are removed, and no one is talking about the price you paid for this deal, which is the removal on -- removal of the sanctions on iran. sanctions that were preventing iran from running throughout the middle east and conquering countries. this is what they are doing in iraq, syria, lebanon, yemen. so the sanction relief is
8:08 am
actually fueled iran's war machine, and that's why this deal is so dangerous, and that's why it's so important for the international communities to unite now behind clear demands that iran fully dismantle the nuclear program, and if they do not, ratchet up sanctions. >> ambassador, do you have 100% certainty from the white house that president trump is going to withdraw from the deal? >> well, it's ultimately going to be president trump's decision, and he has not said what he's going to do. i think it's clear what the direction of the policy is. i think the change today from yesterday is that i think it's likely that more of your allies will follow ultimately his decision. >> okay. >> because the revelations that the prime minister presented yesterday will give a bridge to those who supported this deal to walk over to the u.s. side and to make clear demands on iran moving forward. >> all right, ambassador dermer, thank you so much for being with us. >> thank you. smash hit video game fortnight brought in a recorded $223 million in march alone, and a new season went live this morning. ahead, we'll talk to the

8:46 am
>> thank god you didn't. "cbs this morning" contributor jamie wax is here to break down the competition. good morning >> good morning. >> not often that edward alby and tony cushner are alongside spongebob squarepants. >> not in the same category. >> mean girls and spongebob lead with the most number of nominations. >> 12 each. >> how did that happen? >> not to take away from the creativity behind those two shows, but the true answer is lack of competition. this with 30 shows eligible this season it's the lowest number of eligible plays in any broadway season in ten years. ten musicals premiered on broadway this season as opposed to 21 last season. >> harry potter, the most expensive play in the history of broadway, i think it's $68 million, ten nominations, so money well spent? >> well spent. i have to say, this experience as many critics has written already is magical. it's hard to be cynical about this play as much as you want to
8:47 am
be. there was a father behind me who said, there's nothing theme park about this. it's not corny at all. it is dazzling visually to the point that i feel bad for ever saying i can't believe my eyes, before some of these effects they have, but at the heart of it is a very well constructed, fast-moving play that moves through a running time of over 5 1/2 hours, beautifully, about being a parent, and deep regret and what your destiny is, there are big issues in this play. >> not the only one clocking in, a few more hours than your average movie "angels in america" is the same way. >> seven hours and 40 minutes. you did this wonderful piece about people getting away from their screens, the theater is a great place to do that, please turn your phone off, leave it at home, but it is incredible to see long form storytelling doing so well. two plays that make the ice man cometh look short at 3:50 and people getting lost and absorbed in these great stories for the theater.
8:48 am
it's a wonderful thing in the age of short attention spans. >> disney's "frozen" got three nominations. well for them. >> i think that's low. i think they were probably hoping for more but they got a luke warm response. the truth about "frozen" is they're breaking records at the st. james theater. they don't need the tony nominations. it's nice to have them. people forget that years ago "wicked" did not win the tony for best musical. it didn't do very well at the tonys in general except for some performance and other recognition, and it didn't need it obviously. it's a juggernaut performing incredibly well. >> i am excited to see how andrew garfield does in his nomination. >> he's fantastic. >> big fan, big fan. jamie, thank you, as always, for the inside scoop. sarah barreiles and josh groban host the tony awards, right here on cbs. you can hear more of "cbs this morning" on our podcast on itunes and apple's podcast app today. gayle talks with jacqueline
