7:04 am
cuesing the national enquirer and its publisher of extortion and blackmail. this move dramatically escalates a dispute at the tabloid that exposed intimate details of his private life. they revealed bezos' long time affair with former tv anchor lauren sanchez last month. well, the billionaire used his private investigators to set out to learn, just how did all of his text messages and some pictures with sanchez, how were they obtained? >> last night, bezos posted on the blog medium what appeared to be e-mails from the publisher american media inc. those e-mails ear s urged him t the investigation or risk having private photos and other texts become public. jericka duncan has more. >> bezos had a lot to say in the post last night. he says ami's latest offer came because its ceo david pecker was
7:05 am
furious about the investigation. but now the world's richest man is fighting back publicly and he says despite the personal cost. jeff bezos is on the offensive after hiring a team of investigators to find a national enquir enquirer's motive for unveils his affair. he says they tried to intimidate and silence him. in a combative blog post, bezos revealed what he said are e-mails from ami's attorneys telling him to cease and desist from his personal investigation. in one e-mail, ami chief content officer dylan howard allegedly threatened to release photos including a below the belt selfie if he didn't comply. in another, john fienne allegedly asked bezos and his lawyers to announce that they have no knowledge or basis for suggesting that america media's coverage was politically motivated. in exchange, it said, ami agrees no to the publish, distribute,
7:06 am
share or describe unpublished texts or photos. bezos, who also owns the washington post, believes that the decision to unveil those messages was politically motivated. >> he wants political influence so that amazon will benefit from it. >> reporter: and could relate to the very public spat with president trump who just last month referred to him as jeff bozo. the president has a long-standing but recently turbulent relationship with ami and the ceo david pecker. last year, the company admitted to federal prosecutors that it made hush money payments during the 2016 campaign to a former plo playboy model making allegations of an affair with mr. trump. that prevents prosecution for the payment unless they commit more crime. lockland markay first reported bezos' investigation. >> we don't know if they committed crimes, but that seems
7:07 am
to be what he's suggesting and it is something i think prosecutors will ask david pecker about and could really blow back on ami in a big way. >> it is extraordinary. he says in my position, if i can't stand up to this kind of extortion, how many people can. my favorite line is, i also won't participate in their practice of blackmail political favors. i prefer to stand up, roll in log over and see what crawls out. a game changer. >> that's what questions, what crawls out. who was behind the leak of this information? gavin de becker, expensive, well known security person for billionaires, told the washington post that jeff bezos does not believe that his phone was hacked. he thinks that it is possible a government entity might have gotten a hold of his text messages. the question, which government entity, the u.s.? a foreign government? and for what reason and that's what's really fascinating about this whole thing. >> he also closed the door on anyone questioning his leadership style.
7:08 am
it is most valued company in the world. >> team of investigators has given them an open checkbook, which means there is more to come. >> you'll be on the story. thank you. >> we will be. in a statement made a short time ago, ami says it believes the enquirer's reporting was lawful but they will investigate his claim and take any action that is necessary. for the first time this morning, a house committee led by democrats will question a member of president trump's cabinet. in a prepared statement, matt whitaker warned the judiciary committee he will not discuss his private conversations with the president. that could lead to conflicts if members who want to know what the president said to whitaker about the special counsel's russia investigation. paula reed is at the white house with more on the hearing getting under way. paula, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. here at the white house, officials have been preparing for this hearing. the first one that democrats will hold in their effort to open dozens of investigations into the administration. already this morning, in this hearing, republicans have come
7:09 am
out swinging after the committee chairman threatened to subpoena whitaker yesterday if he did not answer every question about the russia investigation and about kovg conversations he had with the president even though they're protected by executive privilege. he threatened to drop out of the hearing. and the committee did back off. he's been preparing for this hearing by participating in hours long mock hearings. this morning, democrats said they plan to ask the acting attorney general about his involvement in a company called world patent marketing, that company was subsequently accused of fraud. now the president continues to try to paint the hearings as overreach, repeatedly calling the investigations into his administration, quote, harassment. whitaker won't be in this job much longer. it is expected that william barr, the president's nominee to be the next attorney general, will be confirmed. his nomination is moving through the senate, even as some democrats have expressed concern
7:10 am
about how transparent he will be with a special counsel's final report. >> thank you very much. the series of political scandals in virginia has reached another top official. the state senate's republican leader acknowledges he was managing editor of a 1968 college yearbook that included racist photos and slurs. virginia's top three elected officials still face calls to resign over their past behavior. ed o'keefe is at capital building in richmond with more on this ever changing, ever growing story. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. governor ralph northam has finally reached out to the two men behind him in the line of succession. cbs news is told his phone call with lieutenant governor justin fairfax was very affable. >> i have never been in blackface. >> reporter: kirk cox, the third in line to lead virginia, responded to questions from reporters on thursday after the aboutface about blackface by the governor and attorney general. and sexual assault allegation that is consumed the state's
7:11 am
second in command. >> it has been very concerning. no question about that. >> reporter: cox, a republican, would become governor if ralph northam and the next two in line of succession, all democrats, resign. so far, there is no indication anyone is leaving. lieutenant governor justin fairfax facing a 2004 sexual assault allegation he denies remained in front of the state senate on thursday. >> attorney general, did you talk to the governor today? >> good evening, everyone. >> reporter: and mark herring wouldn't comment last night on his admitted experience wearing blackface while governor northam -- >> good afternoon. >> reporter: -- has not appeared in public since a controversial press conference on saturday. >> i was not aware -- >> reporter: now a fourth elected official, tommy norman, tom republican in virginia state senate and managing editor of his 1968 senior yearbook at virginia military institute denied he knew anything about these photos of students in blackface or racial slurs, including the n word that appear in the yearbook. >> you can go through that
7:12 am
yearbook and won't find one racial slur attributed to me. you won't find any photograph that i am in that is disrespectful. >> reporter: last night, virginia's legislative black caucus and virginia's congressional delegation issued separate statements reiterating they want the governor to step down. both groups stopped short of saying that about the lieutenant governor and the attorney general, saying they will wait to see how their situations play out. >> all right, ed, thank you. another big story this morning, the supreme court has blocked a controversial abortion law just hours before it was to go into effect. it was a 5-4 vote last night that temporarily blocked the louisiana law that critics say would force two of the state's three abortion clinics to close. jan crawford is at the supreme court with how this order unfolded. it is always great to have you on a morning like this on such an important case. tell us how it went down. >> reporter: good morning. obviously this could be the first test of abortion rights in the supreme court with new
7:13 am
conservative justices, involving a 2014 louisiana law that required abortion clinic doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. now, in 2016, the supreme court struck down a nearly identical law from texas on a 5-3 vote. but last night, conservative chief justice john roberts sided with the liberals in this case to stop the law from taking effect while the court considers whether it is going to take up this case. the court's four conservative justices desce s dissented. this is just temporary. it may not tell us much if anything about how the court is going to approach abortion rights. the justices still have to decide whether they are going to hear this case. they could do so next fall. john? >> jan, thank you so much for breaking it down for us. this morning, we remember the longest serving member of

adrianne haslet is not your typical athlete. she was hit by a terrorist bomb at the finish line of the boston marathon in 2013. and nearly six years later, a few blocks from the site of the blast she was hit by a car. despite everything she's faced, she's focused on turning her tragedies into triumph. april 15th, 2013, is a date adrianne haslet will never forget. that day she was a spectator at the boston marathon, she was hit by shrapnel and ultimately lost her left leg. we met haslet three years ago. >> something can happen in three seconds, but it's up to you to make every second count after. >> reporter: she was on the up and up accepting her new normal as an amputee. three years after her life was changed she competed the marathon even though she was never a runner. it was a brutal journey to recovery. >> ow. >> reporter: along the way, she
8:16 am
allowed cameras to document the whole process. >> i was thankful that it was as raw as it was and that i captured those raw moments. >> reporter: how has your life changed? >> i look at life so much differently now. i just feel this sort of the understanding about what it's like to go through something really, really tough. you know, it's that phrase that everyone's fighting a hard battle. >> reporter: just as haslet was preparing for another marathon race, last month she was hit by a car. another devastating blow. again to the left side of her body. thnheard of tragedies, most people will never experience, you know, i think on the one hand she has a depth of experience in recovery from something that's this traumatic. and on the other hand, this is a major challenge and tragedy in the middle of a training cycle. we stopped, re-evaluate, and go
8:17 am
from here. roy like in tragedy before, haslet shared every step of her painful recovery on social media, showcasing unparalleled optimism. >> first shower on my own is a success. >> reporter: she'sa anand mont this is -- she's adamant that this is not how her story will end. for the first time, adrianne haslet will talk about whether she's able to run this year's boston marathon. an interview only on "cbs this morning." it's so good to see you here in person with quite a spare, your service. how are you? >> i'm good today. i've had worse days, and i've certainly had better days. i try and make the day to day better than yesterday. and today is. >> you were training to run this year's marathon again. >> i was. and i was training to win first in my division for mobility impaired. not just run it but to place. >> and when you were hit by a car -- >> yeah.
8:18 am
i was. i can't -- listening to you say that, it doesn't seem real yet. >> uh-huh. it's like, gayle was saying earlier, like first a terrorist nearly killed you. then you get hit by a car. why me? >> why me? right, why me? i mean, it's so easy to get stuck on that, and i try not to. you can't help it. i mean, who gets blown up by a terrorist and gets hit by a car? >> i know this is so painful for you. i follow you on instagram. we've been friends for a while. i know you were pouring your heart into the boston marathon. >> i was. >> are you going to be able to run? >> no. no, i'm not. one of the first times saying it out loud. it's so hard. but i'm physically and mentally but physically unable to do that. i have limited mobility in my arm, and it's -- 65 days away today. i talked with my coach and surgeon, and i'm not running. i'm not going to be able to train for that kind of distance.
8:19 am
it's impossibly hard to have this taken away. >> because it was going to be the six-year anniversary. >> yeah. it's falling on the day for the first time of the six-year anniversari. to take back that day and be running as a thank you to everyone who supported me in the running community and boston and beyond, i just wanted to say thank you. >> i think about that. you saying, too, i wanted to take back that day for myself mu. one of the things you told me that rings in my head is you said, i've been broken, but i'm more than my broken pieces. >> i am more than my broken pieces. yes. i have now no left foot, and i have this gash, scar on my arm which i don't know what mobility i'll gain back with p.t. eventually. but i'm more than that. i'm so much more than that. i had to completely redefine myself after losing my leg. and i know i can do that again after being hit by a car. >> you also told me, i've chosen not to be a victim. >> yes. >> that's a hard thing when you've experienced what you've
8:20 am
been through. >> yes. you know, i choose to be called a victim because i'm not defined by what happened in my life. i'm defined by how i live my life. but it is very difficult to think that you are not a victim of multiple injuries and multiple people telling you don't do this. >> what happens when the drive hit you? >> i was walking across the street directly in front of my house, just blocks away from the finish line. and out of nowhere -- and i know that sounds crazy -- a car came and hit me on my left prosthetic. i still have the dent. and sent me flying in the air. the car did not have headlights on. it did not stop at the crosswalk. i had the right of way. threw me in the air. and i remember looking down on to the vehicle, it was dark out, and he did not have lights on. and i remember thinking, i'm going to land on my head, and i talked my head down, and i hit the left side of my body. it shattered all of this here. i sat up, and i felt my arm -- my yell bow sitting in my -- my
8:21 am
elbow sitting in my lap even though it should have been higher up. and i knew that i was -- my arm was not attached to my body. >> in the ambulance, first thing you think of, the surgeon that helped you with your leg. >> i did. i called dr. kalisch, superman surgeon, and i said, something's happened again. get to the hospital. i didn't even ask. >> what is the lesson for people dealing with pain in different ways can learn from your incredible resilience? >> thank you. you know, i don't have all the answers. one thing that i'm proud of is to be fiercely protective of my mental health. i don't think it's separate, mental or physical. for me, i put a note on the outside of the hospital room, and even though i was exposed to media, i thought the blasts came from the sky for about three months. i think it's -- you have to be fiercely protective of who you surround yourself with and who you invite into your life. let yourself heal. give yourself the time. then you can do anything. >> thank you. adrianne haslet. >> thank you very much for having me. it's good to see you again. >> and we'll be right back with more here on "cbs this morning."

diversity and inclusion is present and front and center and particularly for women to have our seat at the table. we are the creators of our music. we are the writers. we are the executives. we are the powerhouses. we are it all, and there's a great respect that is deserved for all women, and you will see that live embodied on sunday. >> alicia said she's looking, of course, to all of the big performances that will be happening right here behind me, especially the collaborations, especially janell monet and the red hot chili peppers, bianna. >> i wish she had more fun in that interview. she looked bored. >> she's amazing. i was bambling the entire time. >> nobody blames you for that. >> by the way, i love that you brought up hers' comment to alicia because you could see the excitement and thrill she got from that. >> it blew her mind. >> slad, have fun. >> watch the 61st grammy awards

at 7:00 central, 5:00 pacific, right here on cbs. today on the "cbs this morning" podcast, apple music's saine lowe looks ahead at the grammys and discusses everything from alicia keys hosting the event to who he thinks this year's winners will be be. a white house leak this week revealed the president dedicates about 60% of his schedule to unstructured executive time. ahead in our reporters' notebook, we explore how we can all balance structured and unstructured time at

8:43 am
coffee break, smoke breaks, executive time. we all try to find time at work to escape from the grind. it doesn't matter whether you're the president or a school principal. it's wise to take your brain from a sprint to a stroll. what is the right balance of focus versus free thinking? how do we arrange our minutes at work to reach optimism productivity? in this week's reporter's notebook we search for those answers. >> reporter: the president's schedule was leaked this week, presumably by somebody who works for him who doesn't think the president works. it showed vast blocks of executive time, a period during which the president can do anything he pleases.
8:44 am
for the president's critics the loose-flitting day suggest he's a loafer. i asked the author of "when the scientific secrets of perfect timing." explained there's nothing wrong with executive time and what is wrong is what we and the president do with our executive time. a president's job is to lead more than it is to manage. those who get this wrong clog up their day with meetings and micromanaging. because the public misunderstands this, presidents often have to look like they are working to avoid criticism. but top executives know that free time is important to think about strategy and vision. a harvard business school study found that top ceos carve out about a quarter of their day for this kind of creative thinking, but other thinking is required, too. blue sky visions are great and all, but large organizations demand systematic and focused work that is done in these tighter scheduled times, so we should ask ourselves and our
8:45 am
presidents, are we using the two types of time wisely? is scheduled time crisp and informative? is free time generating insights? reports from inside the administration suggest structured time is chaotic, and free time sometimes occupying nearly 60% of the day, often coincides with television-inspired tweets. nearly 60% of the day often coincides with television-inspired tweets. dan pink points us toward president divide eisenhower's quadrant system that he created to sort priorities. urgent and important matters require focused time. important but nonurgent tasks can be handled during executive time. where we all fall into the bog of woe is when we spend executive time on matters that are urgent but not important or not urgent and not important. that's lost time or, worse, time where fire drills were created that ruin everybody else's day. this is a system that can work for any of us.
8:46 am
so mull it over next time you have some executive time. >> you know, it's important because we're all struggling with how to make best use of our limited time and a limited day, and how to have more time really for what some might think of as selfish time but really is the time that keeps us mentally sane, keeps us creative, thoughtful, empathetic. >> yeah. yeah. if you want a guide, dan pink's book is -- it's great. >> it is -- >> thank you. >> it was surprising to hear all the executive time that the president had considering what is going on in the country. >> i will say we have covered a lot of fire drills. >> yes. we have. we have. >> all right. nicely done, john. and next we'll look at all that mattered this week. we'll be right back.
