7:04 am
everything he could di >> president trump's attorney rudy giuliani told fox news that he doesn't believe the president's financial disclosures are a liability. >> we're very comfortable with it and we think it vindicates our original strategy. also vindicates the fact mueller should bring this to a close. >> president trump has previously denied knowledge of the payment. >> did you know about the $130,000 payment to stormy daniels? do you know where she got the money to make that payment? >> no, i don't know. >> earlier this month, giuliani first revealed to fox news the president paid cohen back. >> some stormy daniels woman, 130,000, i mean, which is going to turn out to be perfectly legal. >> brendan fisher works as a bipartisan watchdog campaign legal center. >> president trump's financial disclosure report is effectively an admission that $130,000 in debt was omitted from last year's report, failing to report a debt on a report like this is a violation of federal law. >> along with the financial disclosures form, the office of

7:06 am
raises more and more questions. paula, thank you. well, one year ago today, robert mueller was appointed to lead the investigation of russian meddling into the 2016 election. the senate intelligence committee said yesterday it agrees with the u.s. intelligence community's assessment that russia acted in part to help trump win the gop nomination. nancy cordes on capitol hill with the report that's put committee republicans on opposite sides from their counterparts in the house. >> reporter: good morning. after 14 months of investigating this, the senate intelligence committee says that unlike its house counterpart, it sees no reason to doubt the intelligence community's assessment from 2016. as mark warner, the top democrat on the senate intelligence committee put it, russia's election interference was ordered by president putin himself for the purpose of helping donald trump and hurting hillary clinton. now, this is at odds with the house intelligence committee,
7:07 am
which said back in march that it concurs with the rest of the intelligence community's assessment. except with respect to putin's supposed preference for candidate trump. they believe that he simply wanted to shake up the u.s. election system. a conclusion that president trump liked a lot better. yesterday, a separate senate committee released transcripts of its interview with donald trump jr., in part regarding his june 2016 trump tower meeting with a russian lawyer. trump jr. confirmed to the committee he was interested in dirt on hillary clinton, but didn't think that there was anything wrong with attending that meeting. his explanation, however, conflicts with his initial description of the meeting over a year ago, when he said that it was simply set up to discuss russian adoption. norah. >> all right, nancy, thank you. manageghan markle confirms father will not attend her wedding to prince harry.

7:10 am
>> scream. >> reporter: as for who will walk meghan down the aisle now that her father can't make it, odds are, it will be her mother. she has flown in from california and is set to accompany meghan here to the chapel on saturday. or who knows, meghan could walk down the aisle on her own. john. >> roxana saberi in windsor, thanks. i don't think they'll leave that to the last minute, walking down the aisle. >> there's a plan in place. >> i heard speculation prince charles, that would be quite something too. >> we'll be watching early right here on cbs. >> right here camping out. gayle will have it all for us. a federal investigation is focused on whether the owner of a day spa who died in an explosion in southern california was targeted. ildiko krajnyak was killed in the blast. police say bomb fragments were found inside the spa.

mother, a wife, a daughter and a friend. >> reporter: the force of the blast tore the corner off the building and blew out windows. more than 100 children from a nearby preschool had to be evacuated, including babies wheeled out in cribs. on wednesday, investigators executed search warrants at three different locations. surveillance video shows police arriving at the home krajnyak shared with her reportedly estranged husband. later, they were seen removing boxes of office. >> it's hard to believe actually. i know of no enemies. i know she's very hard working. >> reporter: police also searched this house in long beach. a neighbor says the man who lives there was an ex-boyfriend of krajnyak, who makes rockets in his garage. >> it's hard for me to believe he would actually do something like that. so i suspected it's -- somebody else would have done this. >> reporter: the man at that home is steven beale. many describe him as a business associate and estranged ex-boyfriend of the victim.
7:13 am

and will be in prison the rest of his life. dr. jon lapook has been following this story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the details of the settlement are still being finalized. wednesday wednesday, michigan state trustees approved the terms. they insist their fight for justice is far from over. >> it feels like a huge victory. >> reporter: she was sexually assaulted when she was a member of team usa from 1995 to 2000. she was one of the first elite gymnasts to publicly accuse him of abuse when we interviewed her for "60 minutes" last year. >> there's stuff you just can't take back. the trauma that's been done has been done. most of us will live with it for the rest of our lives and no amount of money can change that. >> reporter: the settlement will cost michigan state university $500 million. $425 million will be split among 332 survivors who sued the university. the other $75 million is set

7:16 am
it's been about getting to the truth and holding responsible individuals and institutions accountable. >> jon, thanks. well, beyond that in this case. >> i think that's an important point that jon makes. the victims have said this is really, too, about michigan accepting responsibility. it's such a large payment but in so many way it's accepting responsibility for ignoring this abuse for decades. >> it's a message to other schools to address these issues right away too. >> that's exactly right, you're on the hook for this. be on the lookout for this. geologists warn that hawaii's kilauea volcano might be primed for explosive new eruptions. huge rocks from recent eruptions were scattered hundreds of yards away. aerial video also shows lava coming from the most active fissure. david is in pahoa, hawaii. >> reporter: good morning. that roar coming from behind me is one of the 21 fissures that has opened up here on the island

of hawaii. because of the ga we are wearing these gas masks. the national guard actually brought us to this location. this is what it looks like on the ground. we also went to see it from the air. that view of kilauea's puu oovent crater was formed after one of the most violent explosions in 1959. >> you've got sulfur dioxide coming up but also the lava floor dropped to the bottom. we're only 500 feet above where the floor dropped and the crater is massive. it looks like it goes down a mile. it looks vastly different than it did two weeks ago according to our veteran pilot sean regehr. >> it used to be flat with two craters. >> reporter: we flew to the area above leilani estates. which looked like this before the fissure eruptions and now it look like this.
7:18 am
