new york. good morning synergy norah, good morning. we are about halfway between manhattan and mot tree, canada. there's nothing unusual about snow this time of year. winter. what is unusual is a lot of major u.s. cities have seen far less snow this season than what they usually do at this time in the winter. that doesn't mean it's been any less miserable. winter whiteout stretched from wisconsin to massachusetts. snow sleet and freezing rain left behind a dangerous icy mess. trying to drive in these conditions felt like mission impo possible for drivers in massachusetts. >> there's been accidents everywhere. >> reporter: in indiana freeding rain covered everything in heavy ice bringing down trees on the power lines. ice coated cars and roads in chicago where pedestrians had to watch out for sheets of ice falling from skyscrapers. the heavy rain even triggered landslides that shut down part of a cincinnati highway. when we arrived in saratoga springs, new york, the wet snow

doesn't like it. >> the answer is no. i'm not. i'm not happy. >> reporter: president trump may not be happy, but he's up against a united congress. >> i hope he'll decide to sign it. >> sign it and don't cause a shutdown. >> reporter: they're urging him not to listen to his tv allies who have rejected deals in the past. >> the so-called compromise is typical of the dc sewer and swamp. >> reporter: he wanted $5.7 billion for a wall. the compromise gives him about a quarter of it, nearly $1.4 billion for fencing. 55 miles of it in the rio grande valley. republicans say it's a start. >> i don't mind him taking that as a down payment and finding the rift through executive action. >> the president as a in a box because he said at one time so many different things no matter what we sign is, somebody can say he can say i got what i wanted. >> reporter: the agreement is slightly smaller than the $1.6 billion the senate set out in december.
a sign of the leverage mr. trump lost after a five-week shutdown that left 800,000 federal workers in limbo. >> would the president have been better off accepting the deal that the senate negotiated before the shutdown? >> i think he's got a pretty good deal here, you know? the speaker said there wouldn't be a dollar for a wall. i guess we're going to have an argument about what's a wall. >> reporter: the president's aides tell cbs news he probably will sign the deal. and then look for more funding elsewhere. >> it's not doing the trick but i'm adding things to it. when you add whatever i have to add, it's all -- it's all going to happen. >> reporter: i asked congressional leaders what they think the president meant bied adding to the deal. they're not sure. perhaps he's referring to executive action. but the deal is the deal. it's not changing. they want to hold the first vote by tonight and need to pass it in the house, the senate and get it to the president's deck for his signature by friday night, gayle, if they want to avert
another partial government shutdown. >> and nobody wants that. it appears to be moving in the right direction. thank you, nancy. we shall see. ssho virginieutent governorjuairfaxy assaulted her is speaking publicly for the first time. vanessa tyson did not address her claim directly last night at stanford university. she was on a panel there. she focused on importance of supporting victims. tyson is one of two women whose allegations brought calls for fairfax to resign. ed o'keefe is following the story and joins us with the latest. >> reporter: last night's symposium focused on the impact of the me, too movement and had been planned for months. long before tyson publicly accused lieutenant governor fairfax of assault. tyson never mentioned him by name but seemed to explain her votevation for going public. >> sometimes you have to lead by example. no matter how hard it is. >> reporter: at a panel discussion tuesday night, scripps college associate suivors to shaheir storiescoure

good-bye to its mars rover opportunity today after making one final attempt to contact it. opportunity went silent eight months ago when a massive dust storm prevented sunlight from reaching its solar panels. spacecraft roamed a record 28 miles in 15 years and confirmed that water once flowed on the red planet. opportunity's twin rover spirit was pronounced dead in 2011. attorneys for mexican drug lord joaquin el chapo guzman say they will appeal his conviction. the federal jury found guzman guilty on ten counts yesterday including drug trafficking and money laundering. now he is expected to be sentenced to life without parole in june. guzman's attorney jeff lickman has defended other high profile people including john gotti. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> you talked about there were 14 cooperating witnesses that the jurors heard from.
text messages, videos, weapons, incredible amount of evidence by the prosecution. on what grounds will you be able to make an appeal? >> there were plenty of mistakes during the investigation. i've never had this happen in the case where some very basic areas we were not allowed to go into. one of the witnesses believed that the earth was about to be destroyed in an apocalypse. he believed in 15 foot aliens roaming the earth searching for gold. and i wasn't allowed to question him on any of that. so the jury, perhaps, believed that he was saying in fact it was clear he was out of his mind. that was just one of many errors in the case. now, i don't know that an appeal will work. as you said, there was a tremendous amount of evidence. but this is what we do. we try. >> why would you allow him on the jury though? >> he was one of the cooperator witnesses. >> after the trial, you said something along the lines of my client was presumed guilty. do you not think he got a fair trial? >> i don't think he got a fair
trial. i mean, look. the press has to do its job and i completely get it. but the press was overwhelmingly negative before the jury was even picked. we were presumed guilty. it was very difficult to get around the myth of el chapo. in addition, the cross examinations were so restricted, so restricted that i don't believe the jury ever really heard the full truth about this. >> hold on. >> why didn't he take the stand? >> why didn't >> rare in a crim defense where the defendant takes the stand. they had a tremendous amount of material to examine. my belief is if we have any chance to win the case, we'll lose it if you take the stand. >> why 30 minutes in closing? >> the 30 minutes means nothing. who are we going to call? other drug dealers from mexico to say that he wasn't involved? it's not the case that we put on. it was the cross examination of the witnesses that mattered. >> i'm confused. you said they have a tremendous
amount of material to examine him on but then you called it a myth. did they have something to examine or is it a myth? >> the fact that he was involved in drug dealing, we never denied. we claimed he was not the kingpin. that was the charge that landed him in prison for the rest of his life if he was convicted. so our position was he was really a fall guy. there is a guy in mexico who leads the sinaloa cartel who has been indicted in america for decades. he's been indicted in mexico. he has never been arrested in 50 years. he pays hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes -- >> they haven't been able to get him. >> you can't find who you're -- >> but that does not make el chapo incident. >> that's a fair point. obviously. and this is not an easy case. it doesn't make him innocent, but our position was that he was not the kingpin and therefore did not deserve the life sentence that the kingpin statute requires.
>> the judge even went out of her way and said she felt she was a proud american given the dedication that these jurors put in. what did they miss? what did they get wrong? zblif to tell you, they certainly put the time in. this was a case everybody expected the jury would be out an hour. they were out six days. this is a jury that very well could have come back and acqu acquitted him or hung. what did they miss? as i saidof o the cooperating witnesses was threatening the people in the government threatening to show all details about the witness protection program to the mexican cartels. we were not allowed to cross examine on that. >> a lot of people are concerned about sitting on that jury. they looked -- >> they weren't very concerned. >> should they be concerned now? >> i don't think so. when was the last time --
>> because he's a good guy that's not going to go after him? >> he's in complete isolation. >> apparently he has friends. >> who's he going to speak to? he can't have any visits other than attorneys. he can't see his wife. he's not allowed to see anyone. he's in complete isolation for two years. this is the isolation that one of the cooperators said it was torture. he was tortured by the american government. and that's what caused him to cooperate. that's what joaquin said. >> you call him a pleasure to represent. >> he was. >> you think he's a good person? >> being a pleasure to represent does not make him a good person. >> i'm asking you. >> he was good to me. and aswy i i start being concerned with what people are accused of and what they're convicted of, i'll never be able to get out of bed in the morning. i need to look at them, how do you treat me? because they need the most vigorous defense. look. we all go to your cocktail parties and have friends being investigated. i'm the one they call. >> i've never been at a cocktail

>> reporter: appliances started breaking, siding on their 8-year-old house was warped. >> you can see all along this wall. >> reporter: and they suspected mold growing on the floor and walls were affecting their childrens' health. >> ear infections, sinus, colds. it was one after the other after the other. >> reporter: according to the epa, allergic reactions to mold are common and exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs. neighbors had a similar problem standing water in their living room. >> look. >> reporter: both families say the response was extremely disappointing. >> seems to be a long pain staking process to actually get them to do anything. because they want to -- they want to sweep it under the rug. >> reporter: a spokeswoman for corvias declined to discuss cases but acknowledged the company had let down some residents and said while mold is a minor problem, they will hire
an expert to review the company's policies. >> it felt like people were screaming. >> reporter: this navy wife clektsed complaints ahead of today's hearing from more than 7,000 tenants across the nation through her group the military family advisory network. >> they shared stories of black mold, lead paint, rats, roaches, bats. >> reporter: they're putting their lives on the line to protect and defend this nation and they're living in squalor. >> people don't have recourse. they don't have the ability to withhold a rent check. and they don't have the luxury of looking at housing before they move. >> reporter: the inspector general cited pervasive health and safety hazards at housing facilities. a spokeswoman told cbs news that the military and the housing partners continue to work together to review housing conditions and evaluate policies and procedures. >> i don't think there's a lot of command support to address housing issues. >> reporter: crystal cornwall

that is cher turning back time. welcome back to "cbs this morning." president trump said he's not happy that congress won't provide money for a wall but is expected to go along with the new bipartisan deal. major garrett looks at how the president might keep his idea for a border wall alive. plus, the reason why we're playing the cher song, the cher show on broadway through the eyes of all three women who play her on the stage. but, first, here's today's eye-opener at 8:00. more than 50 witnesses laid bare el chapo's brutal rein as the head of the drug cartel. >> i don't think he got a fair trial. before the jury was even picked he was presumed guilty. it was very difficult to get around the myth of el chapo. >> this is just getting pummeled with rainfall. over the next three days, paradise will pick up half a foot. >> no one usviews this as a don deal yet. >> tyson never mentioned fairfax
by name but seemed to explain her motivation for going public. >> they have nothing to be ashamed of, and they are not alone. >> u.s.-led forces here say they are advancing today against the last remnants of isis militants backed up by american air strikes and artillery. it looks like congress has agreed on a bipartisan spending deal to avoid another government shutdown. lawmakers announced a tentative dheel wou tentative deal that would avert another government shutdown, a tentative deal at the end of the week. i will be conditionally impressed at some later date. right now -- >> this morning's eye opener at 8:00 is presented by progressive. i'm bianna golodryga with john dickerson, norah o'donnell and gayle king. california is in the path of
a powerful storm this morning. the system is expected to bring torrential rain and several feet of snow to the mountains. record rainfall is expected in some areas. flooding and mud slides are a threat in areas that were hit by wildfires last year. paradise, california, could get up to a half foot of rain over the next three days. >> in the east, deadly winter storm brought a mix of snow, ice and rain from minnesota to maine yesterday. the winter weather caused chaos on the roads as cars and trucks spun out. more snow will fall today in parts of new england and new york state. by the time this storm moves out, some areas could get up to 18 inches of snow. sources tell cbs news president trump is likely to sign a bipartisan spending deal to avoid another government shutdown even though he says he's not happy about it. the agreement reached on monday calls for nearly $1.4 billion to add 55 miles of border fencing but nothing to build a concrete wall. it offers far less than the $5.7 billion the president demanded
to build a border wall running 200 miles. "the wall street journal" asked mr. trump last month if he would accept less than that $5.7 billion in this round of negotiations and he said, quote, i doubt, it adding i have to do it right. >> the president has sometimes referred to his wall as a barrier, a fence or steel slats, but he said last month he would not go along with money for other types of barriers. >> nancy pelosi said this morning that there's not going to be a wall in this deal, but she did say she'd be open to other kinds of physical barriers. would you accept that? >> no, because if there's no wall, it doesn't work. she's just playing games, so if there's no wall, it doesn't work. >> the president has suggested several times in recent weeks that he might declare a national emergency just to secure money to build that wall. sources tell cbs news white house and justice department lawyers have already though laid the groundwork if the president decides to take that type of action. >> our chief washington correspondent major garrett is
here with a look at the next step in the president's effort to build a wall. major, good morning. >> good morning, everybody. >> before we get to the next step. >> yeah. >> let's stay on this step, this deal. what did the president get after all of this activity? >> the worst deal of all the ones put before him. we should take this moment to identify that the great deal-maker dealt himself the worst possible hand of all of them given to him by congress, republican or democrat, but he has no choice. he has to take it. very likely means he'll sign it according to all of those who are closest to him. once he signs it we'll know for sure, but this is going to be the worst of the deals presented to him because it's the smallest dollar amount. he had a much larger dollar amount a year ago, even three or four months ago. >> and is that because congress railroaded the president, or is >> fatigue after the longest partial government shutdown. nobody wants to go into that boxed canyon politically or from a matter of policy. the government gave the appropriators space to do the
deal and the appropriators made the deal they can make and said it take it or leave it, mr. president. >> and he's also announced another proposal, an emergency declaration. >> the president will say i respected the process. congress is dysfunctional. i've told the country that and i've identified this as a national priority. ace thathatloress cr my em therit. c pridents have done that same thing, what -- what's the republican reaction been? >> hostile, that you're overstepping your grounds and you should respect the congressional process, that's why the president has waited so long. held it in abayance and said i gave this process time. i'm not satisfied. i'm going to go another route. >> speaker pelosi said there wouldn't be one dollar. >> and there is. >> there is money there. >> it's not for a wall. we're really getting hung up because the president's rhetoric made us get hung up on it, wall, concrete, whatever. the experts say there's area
that need reinforcement. that's a legitimate public policy issue. the president is pursuing that. he's not getting nearly as much as he wants and democrats also know that there's nothing actually immoral about fencing that's reinforced that protects the border. >> can we just be clear. decades, congress, democratic, republican, presidents have all kicked the can down the road on legitimate immigration reform. >> right. >> is there anything new or different in this bill that would address what is a problem facing t country about dealing with illegal immigrants in this country, whether it's putting them on temporary green cards or anything, daca, anything in this? >> the simple answer is no. however, on the other side of this there must come the realization that even with a president who has the most aggressive border security rhetoric of any president in the last 30 to 40 years, you still can't get this big border wall. that shows you the limits of our political legislative process. >> why doesn't he use all that have political power to address some real immigration reform? >> that's going tonight next
phase of this, because on the other side of this, worst deal imaginable, he'll have to come up with a new approach to immigration, and it will have to be a bigger and broader aperture. >> one that's affected his own companies. he had illegal immigrants working in his companies. they had to fire them. he shut know his own business knows that there's a problem. >> it's the worst deal he could have possibly gotten isn't going to sit well with him, so it will be interesting to see. >> it's not. it forces him to reconcile himself to the legislative process. >> yes. >> and once you do that then you make different strategic decisions and establish different priorities. >> another shutdown wouldn't look good for his poll numbers. >> which are in better shape than they have been recently. >> major, thank you. alwaisng at ee o meghan markle comparing it to how the late princess diana was treated. the hollywood star is a close friend of the duchess of sussex, prince heary's wife. clooney and his wife amal were at the couple's wedding and he told reporters yesterday that history is repeating itself. clooney says that markle has been pursued and vilified and
chased in the same way that diana was, and has also called the publication of a letter from markle to her estranged father irresponsible. clean, a longtime critic of an aggress f-paparazzi, had harsh word for the media after princess diana's death back in 1997. >> princess di is dead and who should we see about that? the driver of the car, the paparazzis or the magazines and papers who purchase these pictures and make bounty hunters out of photographers causing altercations and then filming them. well, you must be exhill rated. you bought and paid for one of the greatest news >> princess diana, as you may remember, was killed in a paris car crash while being pursued by photographers. her sons prince william and prince harry have also spoken out about the role of the paparazzi in their mother's death. neither one of them, it seems, hold the press in high regard and george is very, very angry again. he said yesterday that meghan
markle is seven months pregnant. leave her alone. he's worried, very worried, that history is repeating itself in his case. >> good for george clooney. >> great for speaking out. >> more than ever, scammers are targeting people looking for love online and on apps. wired's nick this morning's "eye opener" at wi8:00 is sponsored by --

as more people go online to look for love, the ftc is warning that romans scams are rising. fraudsters find their victims through a dating site, app or social media. more than 21,000 americans reported for million this the process, up from 8,500 reports and $33 million lost in 2013. this comes amid growing privacy concerns surrounding perm information on the internet. cbs news contributor and wired editor-in-chief nicholas thompson is here just in time for valentine's day. nick, so why are these dating app scams increasing in. >> i think it's for a couple of reasons. one this, are organized gangs or groups that have figured out how successful they are. it's like anything on the internet. there's a kind of scam. people learn how to do it. they get good at it. they make lots of money and then eventually we learn what it is and we counter it and then a new scam develops, so it's partly
that, and then partly it's dating sites, dating apps. they prey on our emotional vulnerabilities. it's a situation where we've given up lots of data. we're emotionally vulnerable, and, therefore, we're susceptible marks and that's why this is growing. >> even being a mark though, i can't imagine falling in lovero never met or never even talked to, nick. >> i know, and that's the way most of these scams work. >> exactly. >> where somebody approaches you on a site wherever they approach you and you start to type and you develop an emotional relationship without meeting them in person or talking and that absolutely does happen. >> how do i know i'm talking to you? >> how do you know if you're talking to me. >> and not a scammer. >> figure out a friend of a friend or someone who can verify their identity. that's the gold standard. if you can't do that, you look for other clues. >> what do you mean a friend of a friend? >> if i'm talking to somebody i don't know. >> connected to a lot of these dating ann, you connect through your account and you have these mutual friends and can you call. that's hard, so what you do is you look for clues in the
conversation. you see does it actually seem like they are a real person? does it seem like they say they are the person they are. if they ask him a question does he give a response that was genuine. someone was trying to target me last night and i was dm yiing y back. >> don't you get these all the time. somebody goes into my direct messages on facebook, clearly a stock photo of a woman, hello, what are you do, and normally ju bck and move on.thne i ige searched so i tookhe and ed it on my phone and uploaded it. it was on all sorts of sites. someone when taken a photograph of a young woman from a twitter account and was dming people and i was dming back and they said they were in alabama and using not particularly america grammar, clear english was not their first language, a clear obvious scam. that's not what people are falling for. they are falling for more difficult scams to figure out. >> they were a clemson fan which was a total impossible. >> a giveaway.
>> the average person apparently used 40 apps on their phone. >> yeah. >> so what are -- what do consumers need to do in order to make sure we use these apps safely? >> i think you want to use reputable apps, apps that you've heard of, that your friends have used and people have good experiences. remember, online dating is a great thing. many of these apps develop real relationships and marriages. reputable apps, have good password hygiene, right. don't re pete the same passwords which will prevent you from getting hacked and getting breaches, and then you have to make sure you step out before you get too emotionally engaged in a conversation. >> i know someone who was on match.com, a very reputable site. this is an older individual, and she was targeted, developed a nice friendly back and forth with somebody, and then that person started to ask for money. someone had fallen ill in the family. this -- this happens to a lot of people. >> i think the best advice if somebody starts to ask tore money or starts to feel weird, stop and ask a trusted friend, show them the conversation, explain it to them. pull yourself out of that emotional vortex and then you're
much less likely to get caught. >> that's the other reason why people are so vulnerable. >> just be clear. something like match.com has screening procedures to make sure people can't catfish you whereas what you're talking about happening on facebook through messenger is a much more seedy kind of non-screen kind of thing, right? >> you can create fake accounts on whatever service you want an people and create fake accounts, absolutely. >> regulators on top of this. ftc is warning users. >> ftc is on it today. they should really be working on this, absolutely. >> i have a boring facebook page compared to you. >> i don't like at the dms on facebook. >> only when i'm prepping for segments like this. >> they always keep you working, even on valentine's day. >> happy valentine's day to you. good to see you. we shut mention "wired's" march cover story. intriguing. >> we introduce you to the

in an interview you'll see only on cbs news, jeff glor spoke with emond's widow about her husband's legacy. >> reporter: last august, sergeant 1st place eric emond left north carolina for afghanistan. it was his seventh combat tour. >> we all went into this deployment thinking it was going to be the last one and he'd come home and get set up to retire. >> reporter: on november 27th his wife allie heard tad >> iwas just typical morning trying to get three kids ready. in the morning chaos i saw on the news and tried to shush the kids and i stood there and thought, oh, that's horrible. but nobody called me so eric is okay. all right. come on, girls. >> later that afternoon, after she picked up the kids -- >> the doorbell rang. and i had opened the door not even looking. i -- and you just know.
there's not a whole lot of reasons there would be two uniformed soldiers standing outside of your door. and i just wanted them to say it. like just, they have the things that they have to say, but i just wanted them to say it. my 4-year-old saw the whole sa? >> sustodnd er thumb. >> eric emond had been killed by a roadside bomb in afghanistan. he was 39 years old. >> it was later that night when i had told them that i just wanted to get it through to them that dad -- like daddy is dead. something really bad happened and finally, my oldest had said -- looked at me and said he said he was coming home. >> reporter: allie and her three daughters age 7, 4 and 1 were now a gold star family. for military spouses and
