michael jackson molested them as children tell their story to gayle. >> do you think there are other others out there? >> i believe there are many other boys. >> only on "cbs this morning," the main accusers in a new hbo documentary explain why they once denied they were victims. but we begin this morning with a look at today's eye opener, your world in 90 seconds. >> i could have 100% signed something today, but it just wasn't appropriate. i want to do it right. i'd much rather do it right than do it fast. >> the president tells kim jong-un no deal. >> they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety. we couldn't do that. >> you don't know truth from falsehood. >> i'm sorry, are you referring to me or the president? >> hey, this is my time. >> president trump is facing explosive allegations from his former attorney. >> a fake hearing like that in the middle of this very important summit is really a terrible thing. >> floods have forced thousands
7:02 am
from their homes in northern california. the russian river is overflowing. >> it's just a mess everywhere. >> pakistan and india claim to have shot down each other's fighter jets as the conflict between the two nuclear powers escalates. >> virginia's first lady is responding to backlash after she handed out cotton and asked black children to imagine being slaves. >> dwyane wade won it for miami! it just happened! >> and all that matters. >> this guy is going viral for tearing into some pizza during a reporter's live shot at the michael cohen hearing. >> looks like someone may have told him, dude, you are chowing down on live tv, and that's when he's like -- >> on "cbs this morning." >> we thought it might be fitting to take a look back at the friendship that was. >> i think he's going to be a great president. >> michael cohen is a very talented lawyer. he's a good lawyer, my friend. >> michael cohen will testify. >> turned out he wasn't a very good lawyer, frankly.
7:03 am
>> i am done being loyal to president trump. >> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota, let's go places. ♪ welcome to "cbs this morning." >> i was just thinking, that's what noesehen i have too many necklaces. that's what it looks like in the green room. too much, gayle! no, it's all in good fun. >> all in good fun. there is so much news that happened while everybody was sleeping. this highly anticipated second summit between president trump and kim jong-un ended abruptly. that's right, it's over. and there was no deal to curb north korea's nuclear weapons program.
7:04 am
the two leaders met in hanoi, vietnam, for several hours earlier in the day and then at a news conference with secretary of state mike pompeo. a visibly deflated president said he and kim made progress, but not enough to sign any kind of agreement. >> it would have been something i wouldn't have been happy about. mike would not have been happy. we had some pretty big options, but we just felt it wasn't appropriate. we really want to do it right. >> the white house says the two leaders discussed various ways to advance denuclearization and look forward to meeting in the future. the president is now flying back to washington. senior foreign affairs correspondent and "face the nation" moderator margaret brennan is in hanoi. margaret, what happened? >> reporter: well, john, good morning to you. you know, the president went into this summit saying he had even higher expectations than the first, but he's walking away without any kind of breakthrough. in fact, that's actually a
7:05 am
relief for some of his advisers, who thought he was just too eager for a deal. >> sometimes you have to walk. >> reporter: it was a high-stakes meeting with a disappointing outcome. after extensive face-to-face talks in a five-star hanoi hotel, president trump said kim jong-un's offer was simply not good enough to give up america's leverage. cbs' major garrett asked the president about lifting sanctions. >> basically, they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, and we couldn't do that. they were willing to denuke a large portion of the areas that we wanted, but we couldn't give up all of the sanctions for that. >> will all the sanctions that are currently in existence remain, sir? >> they're in place. you know, i was watching, as a lot of you folks over the weeks have said we've given up. we haven't u anything. >> reporter: president trump wanted kim to completely
7:06 am
denuclearize the yongbyon complex in exchange, but the u.s. wanted more. >> the facility in all of its scope, which is important for sure, but still leaves missiles, still leaves warheads and weapons systems. so there's a lot of other elements we just couldn't get to. >> reporter: and for the first time, the president spoke in detail about other sites discovered by u.s. intelligence, including a second uranium enrichment site that u.s. experts want to inspect. >> i think they were surprised that we knew. >> reporter: it was an abrupt downturn after both leaders had struck an optimistic tone hours earlier. >> are you confident? >> reporter: kim jong-un in his first ever exchange with a western reporter said had he a gut feeling there's going to be good results. but that goodwill fell short. still, the president said while he was done talking for now, he remained friendly with the north korean dictator. >> there's a warmth that we have. i hope that stays. i think it will. >> reporter: even saying he took
7:07 am
kim at his word when he denied knowing about the harsh treatment of american student otto warmbier, who died shortly after being released from a north korean prison. >> i don't believe that he would have allowed that to happen. just wasn't to his advantage to allow that to happen. those prisons are rough. they're rough places. and bad things happened. but i really don't believe that he was -- i don't believe he knew about it. >> reporter: so the president is leaving the door open for diplomats to continue talking, but there was no breakthrough on the main sticking points. there is a bright spot, though, because the president is not leaving empty handed. north korea did agree to keep its freeze on missile and nuclear testing. cbs' ben tracy has been covering the summit. he's based here in asia and joins me now. ben, kim jong-un and the north korean press have been talking about him coming home with something in hand. to see how north korea positions this because as you said, just a
7:08 am
couple hours before this summit took place, north korean state media put out this report basically saying that they were expecting epic results from this summit. that clearly didn't happen. kim jong-un would obviously like sanctions relief, but all along the skeptics have said that north korea is really just playing for time here, that they're not serious about denuclearization. what they really want is just to be accepted as a nuclear power. and so kim jong-un has now been normalized to an extent by meeting with the president of the united states twice. he seems more reasonable because he's not firing off those missiles every other week, which he was doing not too long ago. so he might be playing a long game here. he might have come into this summit asking for full sanctions relief knowing full well that wasn't going to happen. >> reporter: it's a fair point. the offer that kim jong-un did make, it is a significant one, dismantling the yongbyon facility is not nothing, but it wasn't enough for president trump. >> right. this really is the heart of nu. this is a massive facility you're talking about.
7:09 am
almost 400 buildings spread over 3.4 square miles. if they were going to shut it down entirely, that would be huge. but the devil's in the details. you need inspectors to come in to really verify that north korea has done that. it would take a very long time to do it. so there would be a lot of questions about that. i was in north korea last year when they brought a bunch of journalists up to their nuclear test site. they made a big show of blowing up the entrances to the test tunnels. to this day, north korea has never let inspectors in to verify that what they say they did is true. >> reporter: and that, i'm told, is the main sticking point, the verification, are they doing what they said they would do. they couldn't come to an agreement. let's go back to you, gayle, in new york. >> margaret brennan, to be continued, for sure. things didn't seem to go according to plan. the president used his overnight news conference to fire back at his former personal lawyer michael cohen. mr. trump said cohen's dramatic day-long testimony yesterday was, in his words, a fake hearing. >> having it in the middle of this very important summit is
7:10 am
really a terrible thing. he lied a lot, but it was very interesting because he didn't lie about one thing. he said no collusion with the russian hoax. i said, i wonder why he didn't just lie about that too like he did about everything else. >> cohen accused the president of lying and breaking the law when the house oversight committee hearing was over, they said cohen may have incriminated the president. nancy cordes covered it on capitol hill. >> reporter: cohen certainly painted a grim picture of his former boss, describing him as a criminal, a cheat, a liar, a con man, and a racist. he said he wasn't aware of any indsed evidence of russian doors about the president's russian business ties. >> i believe he told the truth. >> reporter: house oversight committee chairman ven-hour hea
7:11 am
said michael cohen left them with plenty of leads to follow up on. >> based on what you heard, do you believe that the president committed a crime while in office? >> based on what -- looking at the facts and listening to mr. cohen, it appears that he did. >> reporter: the committee's top republican disagreed. >> michael cohen can't be trusted. >> reporter: cohen was emotional at times, as he outlined his role in various shady dealings over the course of more than ten years. >> i blindly followed his demands. my loyalty to mr. trump has cost me everything. >> reporter: this drew the most interest, a check to cohen for $35,000 that president trump signed while in office, reimbursement for cohen's $130,000 payout on mr. trump's behalf to keep porn star stormy daniels quiet. cohen says the check is direct evidence the president conspired
7:12 am
to violate campaign finance laws. >> the president was aware of this scheme, is that correct? >> that's correct. >> reporter: cohen also accused his former boss of tax fraud and intimidation. >> how many times did mr. trump ask you to threaten an individual or entity on his behalf? >> quite a few times. >> 50 times? >> more. >> a hundred times? >> more. >> 500 times? >> probably. over the ten years. >> reporter: republicans noted cohen is a convicted felon. >> liar, liar, pants on fire. >> reporter: cohen admitted he lied in the past about a moscow real estate deal. he said that's what the president wanted. >> at the same time, i was actively negotiating in russia for him. he would look me in the eye and tell me there's no russian business and then go on to lie to the american people by sing the same thing. >> reporter: and he insisted the president knew about stolen clinton campaign e-mails before they were released by wikileaks. >> is it likely that donald
7:13 am
trump was fully aware and had every intent of working with russia to help make sure that he could win the presidency at all costs? >> mr. trump's desire to win would have him work with anyone. >> reporter: the trump campaign is also hitting back at cohen's testimony, saying in part, michael cohen is a felon, a disbarred lawyer, and a convicted perjurer, who lied to both congress and the special counsel, adding that his own testimony has proven before to be worthless. >> thank nancy, thank you. michael cohen's public testimony could create more legal jeopardy for president trump. paula reid is at the white house with what's next. good morning. it was stunning to see michael cohen put president trump at the center of these hush-money payments to stormy daniels and suggesting that criminal conspiracy continued into the white house. he also, for the first time,
7:14 am
included don junior as well as the cfo of the trump organization in that conspiracy. what legal jeopardy are they in? >> reporter: well, norah, that's exactly right. this particular claim could expose the president or his family to significant legal jeopardy. cohen alleges the president engaged in a conspiracy to conceal campaign finance violations while he was in the white house. this is currently under investigation by federal prosecutors in manhattan, and we learned they're investigating other things as well. for example, cohen says his last conversation with the president and his team occurred shortly after his apartment and hotel were raided by the fbi, but he can't discuss what they talked about because that conversation is part of an ongoing investigation. he also revealed there are previously undisclosed other matters related to the president currently under investigation by federal prosecutors in manhattan. >> which means, paula, there are people out there trying to get evidence to corroborate his claims. he also mentioned one of the
7:15 am
president's lawyers asked him to change his testimony when he testified in front of congress before. what do we know about that? >> reporter: well, this was a topic that members of both parties were very interested in. why did you lie last time you were here? republicans brought it up to highlight the fact that he has lied last time he was before congress, but democrats wanted to know if the president directed him to lie. he denied the president directed him to lie, but he said when he presented a copy of his remarks to the president's legal team, they modified the remarks, specifically the remarks about the trump tower moscow project. jay sekulow has denied that. >> and michael cohen gave examples of where he said the president inflated or deflated his net worth for tax purposes. what's the likelihood that congress will see his tax returns? >> reporter: well, i think they're certainly going to try. it's highly likely they're going to use cohen's testimony as a means to try to pursue those tax returns. cohen provided them with a road map on how to pursue the president for fraud
7:16 am
insurance, and even his charitable foundation. >> all right. paula, thank you. well, parts of northern california are coping with the worst flooding there in more than two decades. flood waters carried away vehicles in the resort town of guerneville north of san francisco. thousands of people are trapped by the russian river's flooding. national guard trucks are taking people to safety. take a look at this hotel pop before the storm hit. now the whole property looks more like a lake. unbelievable. meg oliver is in forestville, california, in an area cut off by the flooding. meg, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we've been trapped here since yesterday and will be stuck until the roads reopen, which could happen later today. the russian river crested last night at 45 feet, 13 feet above flood stage. the river has risen so high we won't know the extent of the damage unt>>nly in and out of guere is b kak or cawnas inund
7:17 am
ter the russian river overflowed its banks. flood waters surrounded homes, submerged cars, and trapped anyone who didn't leave. this is where you park? >> yeah, it's a road. >> reporter: laura's house is safe, but her yard and basement are completely under water. more than two dozen houses were evacuated. monte rio is also essentially an island. an area weather station recorded more than 20 inches of rain over the past three days. >> we're safe. >> reporter: at least 2,000 people are stranded. the water came up to the roof of this rv, forcing crews to reach this man by boat. one of at least 40 rescues in sonoma county on wednesday. >> never have i seen it scary.
7:18 am
>> reporter: but emergency crews are prioritizing people who are in immediate danger. >> we're not going to be rescuing people unless there's an imminent life safety threat. so people are just going to have to be patient. >> reporter: rachel vazquez didn't think the flood waters would reach her home. now she's waiting out the disaster with her four kids. >> do you have enough supplies? >> i think we're, you know, hopefully going to be okay. >> reporter: you can see where the water reached up. it is receding. sonoma has asked the governor of california to declare a state of emergency. as this happens, more rain is expected later this week. >> meg, thank you very much. only on "cbs this morning," we spoke to two men who claim in a new documentary that michael jackson sexually abused them when they were young children. ahead, why they say at the time they did not think that he was doing anyth we are getting a much-

nice evening shot of hanoi in vietnam. welcome back to "cbs this morning." here are three things you should know -- the democratic-controlled house is voting on a second major gun control measure today. it would extend the review period for background checks from three days to ten. just yesterday the house passed the first significant gun-control legislation in decades. that bill would require federal background checks for all firearms sales and transfers. both measures are expected to face stiff opposition in a republican-controlled senate. president trump is threatening to veto both bills saying they do not sufficiently protect the second amendment rights of gun owners. federal regulators imposed a record $5.7 million fine on the

popular video-sharing app t tik tok for violating a u.s. child previous law. it illegally collected names, e-mail addresses, pictures, and locations of kids under 13. tik tok agreed to delete the information it collected on children. it also is creating a separate app for younger users with stronger safety and privacy protections. the u.s. is banning airlines from carrying lithium ion batteries as cargo because of safety risks. the batteries have been linked to incidents involving smoke, fire, extreme heat, and explosions. the new restrictions issued by the transportation department yesterday will not apply to electronics brought on board by passengers. there will also be a lipped exception for lithium ion batteries used in medical devices. only on "cbs this morning," two men who say that michael jackson sexually abused them as children are opening up about their experiences with the pop icon. wade robson and james safechuck are featured in an explosive new
7:32 am
documentary that premieres this weekend on hbo. both men also sued the jackson estate, but their lawsuits were dismissed because of the statute of limitations. they are appealing that. jackson has always denied any inappropriate behavior with children. robson and safechuck told us about their relationships with jarve jackson including very graphic allegations of abuse. a warning here, some of these details are quite disturbing. before you all met michael jackson, what did he mean to you? >> i saw the making of "thriller." just instantly became obsessed. i wanted to be just like, and i dressed like him every day and did my hair -- had my hair permed to look like him. all that stuff. >> i wasn't necessarily a big fan. then when i got the commercial -- >> mr. jackson? >> the pepsi commercial? >> yeah. when you see me meet him, it's my first time seeing him. at that point, i was pretty excited. it was other worldly, i guess.
7:33 am
>> reporter: wade robson and james safechuck discussed the intimate details of their relationships with michael jackson. >> everybody wanted to meet michael or be with michael. >> reporter: in the upcoming documentary "leaving neverland." that's the name of jackson's ranch where robson claims seven years of sexual abuse with the world-famous performer first began. >> i mean, this was just the most magical thing i'd ever seen. that first night, michael kind of took us on a tour, and he said to me and my sister, you can stay in one of the guest rooms, or -- or you can stay in here with me if you want. and my reaction was of course i want to stay with you. we had one more night that way. myself and my family were going to leave and go on another kind of vacation to the grand canyon. i was devastated to leave michael. mike pechael was devastated foro leave. >> so you got to stay. >> i got to stay.
7:34 am
it was michael and i in neverland for the next week. >> your parents allowed that? >> my parents allowed that. within the first or second night of michael and i being alone at neverland, the night started changing. one of the ways i remember it starting is michael starting to touch my legs and touch my crotch over my pants. it progressed to him performing oral sex on me, him showing me how to perform oral sex on him. >> did it scare you? did you think it was wrong? >> the couple days prior to the abuse starting, he started touching me just in the sense of like hand on my leg, lots of hugs, kissing my forehead, rubbing my hands. so there had been this kind of development of physical closeness that was happening already that felt like a father. just felt amazing. as michael started doing these
7:35 am
sexual acts, he started talking to me about god brought us together. we love each other, and this is how -- >> we love each other. >> we love each other. this is how we show our love. >> you're nodding in agreement to what he's saying. tell me what happened to you. >> he introduced me to masturbation. he said i taught him how to french kiss. then it moves on to oral sex. >> were you frightened or thinking this is weird or wrong? >> no. no. it's in the context of a loving, close relationship. there's no alarm bells going off in your head or -- or any thoughts like that. really it's i love this person, and we're trying to make each other happy. he said i was his first. even as a kid you don't know what that means. you're lovers and best friends. >> what does that mean, james? you're in they relationship and you're lovers. you're a little boy. >> right. >> he's a 30-something man. and you're a little boy. at that age, how do you even know what that means?
7:36 am
>> you don't. you just feel really connected to someone. and you just love them intensely. >> the public in energy thinks it's violent -- public in general thinks it's violent, very painful. what you're describing is totally the opposite of that. >> he didn't beat me. he never said mean things to me. it was all we love each other. >> despite what they're claiming today, in 1993, robson and safechuck denied being molested by jackson when allegations were brought by another boy, jordan chandler. that case settled out of court. you all tell a descriptive story about, you know, sexual activity with michael jackson. yet, when you were asked to testify in 2005, and wade you did, you got on the stand and testified on his behalf. and vehemently denied that any sexual activity had taken place. >> yes. >> why did you do that? >> the training it, mike pecham
7:37 am
training of me to testify again the first night that he started abusing me. he started telling me that if anybody finds out, we'll both go to jail. both of our lives will be over. >> the 2005 criminal trial of michael jackson centered on molestation charges brought by child cancer survivor named gavin arveso. court testimony shows that from the stand, wade robson denied ever kissing, showering, or even cuddling with jackson. you know, they credit your testimony in part for michael's acquittal. you were called really a star witness. you withstood a blistering cross-examination. >> yeah. >> and he was acquitted. on some level do you feel guilty now? do you think about that? >> yeah, i have, and i do. i wish that i was ready. i wish that i could have helped gavin arveso receive some justice and validation for what happened to him. that it was just like what happened to plea and what
7:38 am
happened to james. and i wish that i could have played a role in at that point stopping michael from abusing however many other kids he did after that. >> do you think that there are others out there? >> i do think there are others out there. i also don't expect them to just come out now that we're coming out. it's such a difficult thing to do to come out. you have to do it when you're ready. >> we can't change what happened to us. it's done. what can we do with it now? how can we provide comfort for other survivors, that's what this is about. michael happens to be the guy, the abuser, in this child sexual abuse ck rday. they say the men, we should point out, according to the jackson family, they're admitted liars and opportunists trying to capitalize on michael jackson's death and exploit the jackson name. neither one of these men were paid for appearing in the documentary. they will get nothing for appearing. they think it's important, they
7:39 am
say, to tell their story. they want people to know. i thought it was interesting. they said when you think of child sexual abuse, you think it's a painful, frightening thing. they didn't even know anything wrong was happening to them because they're little boys. >> you can't overlook the detail that they provided about how the relationship evolved. >> and what's powerful about the detail is not the acts, the narrative and the fact that both didn't know each other. >> they didn't. >> they both heard a version of the same very surprising and complicated narrative from -- they claim from michael jackson, and that those two things are similar. >> each one said they thought they were the only one and keeping the secret. keeping the secret is the thing that often takes you down. >> i've said it before, a lot of suffering in silence. it's only until people speak out and expose it that it ends. >> that's why they are speaking up. we'll continue our conversation in the next half hour including how they say that even their parents were groomed by michael

♪ good morning to our viewers in the west. it's thursday, february 28th, 2019. welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead, the next step for nuclear talks with north korea after the hanoi summit. plus, president trump claims michael cohen lied to congress again yesterday. well, we're going to check in with rikki cleeman and fbi investigators may follow up on cohen's tips and testimony. and michael jackson's accusers tell gayle why it was time to tell their stories of alleged child abuse. first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> this second summit ended abruptly and there was no deal to curb north korea's nuclear weapons program. >> he's walking away and in fact
8:01 am
that's actually a rehe have for some of his advisers who thought he was just too eager for a deal. >> reporter: before the summit took place, north korean state media put out they expected epic-making results from this summit. that clearly didn't happen. >> cohen painted a grim picture him as a criminal, a cheat, a liar, a con man and a racist. >> cohen alleged the president engaged in a campaign finance scheme and is currently under investigation by criminal prosecutors in manhattan. >> this river has risen so high and we won't know the extent of the damage until the floodwaters recede. >> a whole day. congressional testimony by trump's former lawyer michael cohen. i got up this morning and i was watching it with my kids. >> yeah. hush money? like, daddy, what's i'll pay you $20 if you never ask that again. >> this morning's eye eye-opener
8:02 am
at 8 is presented by liberty mutual insurance. i'm john dickerson with norah o'donnell, bianna golodryga and gayle king. president trump is on his way back to washington after abruptly ending his summit with north korean leader kim jong-un without a nuclear weapons deal or any deal at all really. a scheduled signing ceremony had a noise, vietnam, was called off overnight. the president told reporters that kim wanted all u.s. economic sanctions to be lifted right away. >> they were willing to denuke a large portn of the areas that we wanted, but we couldn't give up all of the sanctions for that. we actually had papers ready to be signed, but it just wasn't appropriate. i want to do it right. i'd much rather do it right than do it fast. >> the president said talks will continue, but they have not scheduled a third summit. senior foreign affairs correspondent and "face the nation" moderator margaret brennan is in hanoi. margaret, good morning is this considered a diplomatic failure?
8:03 am
>> reporter: not a full failure but certainly not a success and i'll explain why, because negotiators had been working through the night. they just weren't able to broker the kind of breakthrough that the president had promised. he didn't escalate tensions either, so that is a relief for some of his advisers who feared he was just too eager for a deal. kim jong-un's offer that he put on the table was to dismantle his central nuclear development facility in exchange for sanctions relief. that fell short though of what the president wanted. the main sticking point was about access and monitoring of more key facilities. the president revealed that u.s. intelligence has uncovered multiple covert nuclear sites and without regular access to those it was just not enough to win u.s. concession. now, the secretary of state just said that there had been some progress with diplomats agreeing to some goodwill gestures. they confirmed that the u.s. will keep military exercises on pause, so the president is
8:04 am
returning home looking like he walked away from a bad deal, and he left the door open to a future one. in the meantime north korea has agreed to pause all nuclear and missile tests, so it's a bit of a stalemate here. bianna? >> essentially both leaders go only empty-hand. the president's former personal attorney michael cohen testifies behind closed doors again this morning on capitol hill after an explosive day of public testimony. cohen told the house oversight committee and the president, his soldest son personally reimbursed him for push money payments. he submitted two checks both date after the inauguration to support his claim that the president engaged in possible criminal conduct while in office. >> mr. trump is a con man. he asked me to pay off an adult film star with whom he had had an affair and to lie about it to his wife which i did. >> are you telling us, mr. cohen, that the president directed transactions in
8:05 am
conspiracy with alan weisselberg and his son, donald trump jr. as part of a civil criminal -- as part of a criminal conspiracy of financial fraud, is that your testimony today? >> yes. >> is there any other wrongdoing or illegal act that you are aware of regarding donald trump that we haven't yet discussed today. >> yes, and, again, those are part of the investigation that's currently being looked at by the southern district of new york. >> president trump told reporters in vietnam that he watched as much of the hearing as he could. he called his former fixer's testimony shameful. >> cbs news legal analyst rikki klieman is here with more of this. >> good morning. >> from a legal standpoint as the president is flying back here to the u.s., what should he be the most worried about this morning? >> he should be most worried about the southern district of new york. there is no doubt in my mind about that. what you have in michael cohen is someone who was telling the
8:06 am
truth or not, so what does a prosecutor do? a prosecutor looks at what he says and says how can i corroborate this because we know that michael cohen is a liar. he admits that he's a liar. he has lied to congress. he has pled guilty to fraudulent crimes involving lying, so does it mean he can never tell the truth? of course not. >> well, in fact, the special counsel has said that they were able to corroborate much of what michael cohen shared with them. >> without any doubt, and the special counsel's office and the southern district of new york know much more already than the oversight committee. nevertheless, by bring in the checks alone, those checks are highly corroborative and provocative, so what you do have is the possibility of a conspiracy of four people, that is the president, michael weiss kingdom in his pocket and donald trump jr. >> explain the keys to the comment about weisselberg. >> he's the most important following witness.
8:07 am
remember, he was immunized back with the southern district of the person with the checkbook. he is the person who knows where the money went. the reason he has the keys to the kingdom is he has the keys to the kingdom not only on the hush money cover-up which really is the potential of a federal crime of conspiracy to violate the election laws, but he has the financials so they are going to want the financial statements that were discussed as to whether they were inflated and deflated. do we know if there's fraud. there's lots of possible crimes there. >> the power that the prosecutors of the other damaging disclosures yesterday for michael cohen is that the president may have known in advance about the wikileaks disclosures from julian assange to roger stone. >> roger, stone, yeah. >> is it possible that they could have phone records, recordings of that particular conversation or to crab rate what the president knows? >> i doubt that they have a recording, but they could have
8:08 am
phone records, and you always have the other possibility of other witnesses. >> roger stone is under a gag order so he can't respond. >> wouldn't know that yesterday. >> he did respond on twitter saying not true. >> thank you, rikki. >> only on "cbs this morning," two men who say they were sexually abused by michael jackson as young children tell us how they are doing today. >> when you hear michael jackson song, you think what? >> it's gotten better for me, but a lot of times i'm in a restaurant, it's anywhere. a lot of times i'll have to leave because i -- i feel it in my body first before i even realize that it's playing. >> both men detail alleged abuse in a new documentary airing on hbo this weekend. ahead, why the men say their

are com forward. wade robson and james safechuck detail the alleged abuse in a new documentary premiering on hbo this sunday. jackson has always denied any inappropriate behavior with children. we spoke to his family this week, and they insist the documentary is full of lies. robson and safechuck admit to lying in the past, but they tell us they are telling the truth now. you may find some of this interview disturbing. >> this is the truth of what happened. but the reason for me to tell it now, the reason to do this film is so much bigger than michael. it's so much bigger than me and james. >> right. >> jackson fans as you know are adamantly defending him and saying that you all are admitted liars. you're just opportunity stick and trying to get -- opportunistic and trying to get money from the estate and from michael jackson. what do you all say to that? >> it's an old argument that they've used. they say it's just about the
8:16 am
money. for me the lawsuit was about fighting back for little james. nobody fought for me as a kid. but i'm old enough now to fight for myself. >> in the hbo documentary "leaving neverland," wade robson and james safechuck claim they tomorrow sexually abused by michael jackson -- claim the they were sexually abused by michael jackson as young boys. both said it was having children of their own that helped them come to terms with the alleged abuse. >> if i never had a son, i might still be in silence. >> really? >> i think there's a good chance. >> uh-huh. >> i had become so disconnected from myself as a little boy over the years and through the process of kind of pushing all of this down that i had no relationship with little wade. i had no kind of concept or care for in my mind little wade. >> in your son, did you see yourself as a little boy? >> that's what happened. i started having visions or
8:17 am
images of what happened to me happening to my son. and i saw images of michael doing it to my son. and that was the first time that those kind of thoughts in relation to michael ever had an extremely negative, scary, emotional reaction in me. it was once i could see, really understand this is what a little boy looks like and feels like and thinks like and behaves like. this is what innocence feels like. that was me. >> i think your mothers are going to be in for criticism. they are prominently featured in this documentary. >> kid things, they were just doing kid things. he just kind across as a loving, caring, kind soul. >> as i watched that, i had a lot of questions about how -- the behavior of your mothers in particular. >> the parents -- parents are groomed, though. the parents are groomed, as
8:18 am
well. michael spends a lot of time talking to your parents and connecting with them and building relationships with them. >> special relationship. >> he pays attention to them, and they're groomed over the time. it is their job to protect us, and they didn't. but i try to look at it from their point of view without letting them off the hook. obviously that's their job. >> what about michael's staff? >> the staff are everywhere. michael had so many people, employees, running his life, running his career, running his life. secretaries, security guards to make sure that the room i was in with him was secure and closed off and private so he could do anything he wanted with me. >> you said people had to know that this was going on. >> it's hard for me to believe that people didn't know or at least people -- had to wonder what is going on, something weird is going on here. >> where does michael jackson sit with you both today in.
8:19 am
>> i don't think i can answer that. it's -- yeah. i still have really -- i can't -- a lot of mixed feelings. there's still a bit of love, and there's still -- almost like a guilt for saying the truth, like i betrayed him. >> like you betrayed him? >> yeah. like i still have those old wiring. that's still there. so my relationship or my understanding of my relationship with him it needs a lot of work. >> the jackson family points out to us that your stories changed after michael's death is what they're saying. that if he were still alive, you all would not be sitting here talking to us now. there would be no movie, no documentary, you would not be talking. what deuce to that -- what do you say to that? >> right. if michael was still alive and all the details of my life were the same meaning i became a father and i went through the same process that i did of this
8:20 am
realization and going through the healing process, i believe that we'd still be doing this. of course, some details may be different. >> james? >> yeah, i don't know. would i have taken this to my grave? i certainly planned on doing that. i had no expectations of ever telling anyone. you know, if he was still alive, yeah, i don't know. maybe i would have taken it to my grave. i don't know. >> wow. >> interesting that james talks about the guilt that he feels. and you can see he is still extremely fragile. he's married. he has three children. wade is married and has one son. both sides the births of their sons were a defining moment for them. they've had therapy. they've had breakdowns. it's been a very difficult road for them. we have to stress again the first case with michael jackson in 1993, he settled for $22 million. that was the jordan chandler case. in the trial in 2005, ted. the jackson family is very adamant that you must mention
8:21 am
that he has never been found guilty of any of these charges. still, what these young men are saying is very, very serious and very, very disturbing. they say it's our story and our story to tell. that both things are true in their opinion. michael jackson was a genius, a musical talent, but he was also someone who abused young boys. >> that story they tell when they talk about the old wiring it so complex. it would seem if you were making up the story it wouldn't have the messy complexity in it. that's what makes them seem credible. >> on those details they have always been consistent always. "leaving neverland" airs sunday march 3rd and march 4th on hbo. on today's podcast we're going to talk to the documentary's producer and director, dan reed. he was here on tuesday. we continued our conversation later that day. you can listen on any major podcast platform. we'll be right back. you're watching "cbs this morning." with neulasta onpro patients get their day back... to be with family,

8:32 am
the controversy comes after her husband, governor ralph northam, came under fire this month when a racist photo on his 1984 medical school yearbook page surfaced. when i saw the story it made me kind of sad. i think she's giving a tour, she's trying to put history in context. all depends on how she delivered it. i wasn't there. but if she said, can you imagine being this person, or can you imagine a little black child what this was like -- i don't believe that that was her intention. i was at the mansion and met them both. she was lovely. she was talking about the history of the house. >> i almost called you when i saw the story, too. i do think it's important, and i applaud the first lady for saying, look, this is where slaves worked here in the governor's mansion in the past -- >> and put things in context. >> picking cotton was extremely back-breaking work. >> we weren't there, but i can't imagine that he would have been that insensitive to this young person who was there. it made me sad. i think we are so quick to jump on things now. everybody's super and hypersensitive when it comes to

racial issues in particular. >> it does appear to have been well intentioned. >> i think so, too. the "dallas morning news" says former texas congressman beto o'rourke has decided not to run for u.s. senate next year against incumbent john cornyn. numerous people close to o'rourke tell the paper they expect o'rourke to announce his presidential campaign within weeks. last november he came close to defeating republican senator ted cruz. bloomberg reports four female employees at nike cleared a major hurdle in their lawsuit in a gender pay gap case. nike lost a bid to dismiss the suit. the lawsuit alleges nike systematically pays women less by relying on salary history and starting -- and setting starting pay. u.s. labor data shows women are paid 82 cents for each dollar earned by men. the company is also accused of largely ignoring sexual harassment and marginalizing women's performance to stifle their career growth. a spokesman refused to comment. "u.s. news and world report" says the deeper the sleep the better for preventing
8:34 am
alzheimer's disease. that's what we need to hear on this shift. that's according to new research from the university of rochester medical center. it says that slow and consistent brain activity experienced during deep sleep is ideal for cleaning the brain of toxic proteins and waste that's linked to alzheimer's. >> forgot what deep sleep felt like. >> that's right. fast company reports the seller etsy just became the first global commerce company to offset emissions. they say zero waste. to offset the emissions from shipping, it will help protect a forest in minnesota build a wind and solar farm in india and fund the development of a more sustainable method of making car parts. the "washington post" reports this the late president george h.w. bush's service dog sully is taking on a new mission. the yellow lab began working yesterday at walter reed national military medical center outside of washington.
8:35 am
he's going to provide comfort to u.s. service members, wounded veterans, and their families. sully became famous after a photo of him lying by mr. bush's casket went viral. and that was one of the former president's parting wishes, that he would continue serving america's veterans. >> wish granted. president trump and north korean leader kim jong-un did not make a deal at their second summit after the talks ended overnight. mr. president trump said, quote, sometimes you have to walk. kim wanted sanctions fully lifted in exchange for closing only some of its nuclear sites. the two leaders left vietnam without plans for a third meeting. last june they did sign commitments during their first historic summit. army general vincent brooks edinat m e inpo ea he retirednu he's with us now. general brooks, welcome. >> good morning. >> good to have you here, general. >> good to see you.
8:36 am
>> let me ask you this -- the north korean lead got to walk on the world stage in central parity with the president. the president said he was a good person. they have a good friendship. what did the u.s. get? >> well, what i was happy to see was that there's progress in creating a new relationship between north and south korea and between the united states and north korea. and this progress was upset by yesterday's outcome. there was a chance to move much further in establishing a new relationship like a declaration to end the war and that didn't happen. what the u.s. got out of this is a clearer understanding of what it is that concerns kim jong-un the most and thathe intends to release his nuclear weapons, but he doesn't know the way to get there and doesn't have a foundation of trust. >> was it a diplomatic failure, and who was a winner and a loser? >> washington wouldn't call it a diplomatic failure. it's another step in diplomacy.
8:37 am
i'm happy as a military former commander to see that there is diplomacy and not a need to pursue a military option at the time. that's what we were pursing in 2017. who's the winner in all this? really no one. no one walked away with what they wanted. south korea didn't see the progress they hoped for, north korea didn't get the relief they wanted. the united states did not get the disclosure it wanted. i still don't call that a failure, though. i think this is a clear indications of where we are and how many more steps there have to be. remember, this is a country that doesn't know anything about trust. it's 450 days since is the last provocation. and i'm counting. i was then and i still am. that's important to reck these.
8:38 am
he said he was going in a different direction and has gone this a different direction. but kim jong-un does not know the way forward on build iing trust. >> he also said if sanctions were not lifted he would be forced to take a, quote, unquote, new path. are we closer or further away out of this meeting to this new path. >> i think we're closer. this is strange, this has been my experience with korea over many years, many decades. often you're closer when you feel like you are further apart. it sounds illogical, but it's absolutely true. kim jong-un now has i better understanding of what he didn't get and what he really wants which is economic development. it's not that he wants his nuclear weapons. he wants economic development. he sees he has to take a different way to get there. he gambled and missed. >> we've seen the north koreans play footsy before, talks over nuclear disarmament broke down. haven't we seen this before? why would this be different? >> there are some similarities.
8:39 am
but what is is different this ti time? kim jong-un is different. he's not his father or grandfather. he's trying to deliver something that he believes they attempted and failed to do -- a new relationship with the united states. peace on the korean peninsula and economic growth that he delivers. this is a different circumstance than before. he also achieved the nuclear weapons that his grandfather did not. >> we have 28,000 troops in south korea, which you commanded, as well as their families. do you believe they are safer because of this new relationship between the south korean president and north korean president and what trump is doing? >> i absolutely do. as you saw when you were there in 2017, the environment importantly builds around the sense of whether a -- an immediate danger is emerging or not. and the danger of artillery, the weapons systems are still there. but the intention has changed. the threat really is combined of those, capability and intention, and i would say the intention is very low right no to engage in
8:40 am
looking for. as a result some of the danger remains. >> do you anticipate a third meeting? >> i do. i think there will be a third meeting. there will also be another south korea-north korea meeting and probably another china-north korea meeting. they will express their concerns to kim jong-un and maybe help to try to put him back on track, as well. >> they should have you involved in the discussions. you are very optimistic. i like it. >> i am. i can't be completely disappointed by this. north korea's a country that doesn't understand trust. it doesn't have trust internally, and it doesn't have trust experience exterally. so we shouldn't be surprised that they tripped here. >> the white house will be calling you later today, sir. >> talking is always better than fighting. >> exactly. >> general brooks, thank you so much. >> thank you. we are getting a much- needed break from the rain today and tomorrow.
8:41 am
we will catch a little bit of sunshine today. we start out tomorrow with sunshine with clouds increasing tomorrow. we have another round of rain on saturday, and not a major storm, thankfully. enjoy this dry weather with mid to upper 50s, 60 today.

8:45 am
that's with drake. i like me some drake. she's returning in the new sitcom "fam." she claims clem whose life with her fiance nick is turned upside down when her troubled half sister, shannon, she's a mess, moves in with them. in the new soepd, clem -- episode, clem gets an unexpected request from her dad. >> hey, daud. what are you doing here? >> i'm going to need a plus one to the wedding. >> okay, first of all, you were almost a minus one. >> so you can bring a no one. >> come on, weddings are romantic. i want to share it with someone special. once i settle on who that person is. >> what does that even mean? >> it means i'm seriously dating someone, and i'm dating someone else seriously. >> no wonder shannon goes for awful guys. look at who her male role model
8:46 am
is. >> nina dobrev joins us. i liked when we had ran the clip, you were like, wrong clip. good to have you here. after "vampire diaries" you were quoted as saying i don't know when i'll come back to tv. this is a very different role. it's comedy. did it give you pause at first? i know it's called acting. >> yeah. i mean, to be honest with you, you're right, i wasn't planning on coming back to television so soon. when i got the opportunity and got the offer for the show, it was a comedy and comedy's something i've always loved doing but had never had the chance to do -- it's an interesting dynamic. in hollywood, when you do one thing well, people kind of think that's the only thing you can do. >> yeah. >> so i jumped at the
8:47 am
opportunity. >> what is it that you liked? >> clem, my character, is pretty flawed. she's a reformed hot mess of her own. >> one of gayle's favorite words, hot mess. >> one of them. >> i can relate. and i like played flawed characters, and the audience is scary -- >> i've heard actors say both things. >> it was terrifying which is why i wanted to do it. i like challenges. as soon as i did do it, it was as scary as i thought i would be. so much so that my heartfelt like i was going to jump out of my body. i honestly didn't want the pilot to get picked up. i was like, i don't think i can live under the stress for 22 episodes. >> you know in realtime, if the joke is working or not working. that's got to be a terrible feeling when you say something that's supposed to be funny and
8:48 am
nobody laughs -- >> the show is really good, and the writers are talented. we didn't have that many misses. so it ended up going well ultimately. >> good. >> but i didn't think that i could do that for so long. then i got used to it after a couple of episodes. now i'm super comfortable, and love it. >> speaking of realtime, don't they change lines while you're in the middle of doing it, too? you're changing new lines in front of new audience -- >> you're testing jokes in front of a live audience. >> what's the most surprising thing about a live audience? >> pausing for laughter. you have to have rhythm or you don't. and that part of it i figured out that luckily i do. then you get thrown off because you don't laugh. when they laugh, do you freeze? like a tableau, or you keep acting like silently -- >> does that carry over in real life? i say things that are funny, and people don't laugh at all.
8:49 am
do you have to not react and laugh? >> there is the thing, norah, you'll like this about her, she loves working out. you. norah's resolution was to work out every day. you said you love working out. >> good for you. >> well, even if it's for ten minutes. i can't say it's for extended periods of time. my every damn day thing. >> i work out every day, too. sometimes if i'm too tired to go to the gym, i consider alcoholic beverage a liver workout. you're exercising a different muscle. >> you just made yourself more popular at this table. >> nina just sold her first script for a movie that she can't discuss. we want to say congratulations. >> congratulations. >> thank you. >> come back, come back. >> yeah, bring a flask. >> thank you. >> "fam" airs tonight at 9:30, 8:30 central on cbs.
