an october fifth, 2012, does uginated for exit polling. this is the last registered address for manafort's company here in downtown kiev. but they say it's been empty for more than two years. before becoming trump's right-hand man, he spent his name with yanakovic. and he's now exiled in russia. prosecutors told us it will consider bringing criminal charges against paul manafort, just like every other name on that list if they believe there's any wrong doing. trump's campaign manager,
kellyanne conway described her new roll on cbs this morning. >> are you going to be doing in terms of the organization, each state or managing the candidate? >> a little bit of beth. i think it's important to make sure our infrafructure is sound and that includes our data operation, and our ground game. i'm a big believer of retail politics and donald trump is a fantastic retail candidate. >> when he doesn't get in front of his own message. >> we started monday with a very muscular speech about radical islamic terrorism. how to fight it, what it is, why it it matters. many feel we've been at war for 15 years against an enemy we can't see or name. a majority of americans feel that things can get better economically. so, we would like to taken a uplifting, optimistic policy
centric message directly to the american people. >> how is this not a campaign in trouble from outsiders looking in? >> i see it as a campaign expanding. because with 12 weeks left to go -- who's counting? we look at it as an expansion at a critical and busy time for the campaign. when it comes to senior level staff, more is more. i mean the more big minds and broad shoulders we can get inside the door. paul manafort retains his title and paul and stephen bannon and i yesterday were together. >> but now you have three leaders, it appears. somebody has to making the call. >> i'd say it's a combination of us and donald trump has made it very clear who it is. i respect him tremendously. he's the candidate. i would never have the fire in the belly or biel in my throat
to do what he has done, which is build a movement. >> paul manafort famously said if this campaign becomes a referendum on donald trump, it has failed. it it has been a referendum on donald trump. >> i agree with you and i made similar remarks during the democratic convention last month because i noticed the democrats -- when hillary clinton and her supporters are asked tell us what you're going to do about obama care? they talk about donald trump. so, hillary clinton wants to talk about donald trump. we want to talk directly to the american people. that's the difference. >> and you want to talk to women in particular. you were talking about having a good messaging week. donald trump said "she lacks the physical stamina to take on isis and all the many adversaries we face. he said she doesn't look presidential."
how do you get him to stop saying things like that? >> the fact is -- >> that would alienate a lot of people. >> you just showed something i find to be unbecoming for somebody who wants to be commander and chief. she said well, they can get him to read words from a teleprompter. there's not aing insingle unin american who gets health care because of this nastiness. the way to speak to women and all americans is through issues. we have to get away from this content-free campaign. how do they protect that? >> but you're confident you can keep your candidate on message? because it's that exact problem which has complicated what you say you want to redirect it to. >> i'm glad that he relishes being out with the crowd and partly on teleprompter but at a
rally when he's able to interact with the individuals and what you don't see is the meetings with fam aelg ilies and other f. so, i'm confident he can stay on message and it has to be about substance and issues. i'd rather lose a campaign where we put it on the table substntively. than winning it on style. if this is about style, he can go back to i think it also needs to be about facts and figures. >> speaking of facts and figures. he's received an intelligence report. did he believe it? >> i can't disclose it. i can say he took it very seriously. >> you can't disclose whether he believed it or not? >> no, about the details. >> i didn't ask details. did he believe the intelligence
report that the cia prepared for him? >> yes, when you say believe, he is certainly taking it seriously. nobody looks at something that complicated in one sitting. >> so, he's not saying i'm not believing what they're reporting because they don't know what they're doing? >> no, he didn't say that in my presence before or after the briefing. and we sat at a round table with congressman, generals and other national security experts. it was a very, very great conversation and i would call it very interactive. his questions are one of somebody who wants to be commander and chief and wants to do well by our armed forces, our allies abroad and i was happy to sit in that round table because i think it's symptomatic of the types of events we don't see as voters.

eight robotic cameras and dozens of remotely controlled ones in every corner of the olympic venues. they're in the rafters and sunk in the pool for unique underwater, underbody perspectives. it's out to the world in how many seconds? >> out to the network in two minutes from the time it's shot. >> reporter: if it captures just the right moment, it may live forever. >> when you get that image, it's the greatest reward. >> reporter: these photographers sometimes find themselves capturing a moment they didn't quite expect. during the winter olympics, david goldman was in a vip room with russian president vladimir putin. he took this picture of him checking his nails at the same time one of the snowflakes did not become a ring but by the
the longest aircraft in the world has taken its maiden voyage. >> reporter: on an air field just north of london, the world's longest aircraft spreads its tiny wings and takes to the sky. measuring in around the width and length of a football field, the airlander 10 is not what you'd call conventional. up close, it looks even stranger. >> this is the flight deck. >> reporter: but chief test pilot, david burns, who was at the controls for the maiden flight, says you need to look beyond the shape of the hull, which has been the but of some jokes, to appreciate the very modern flying machine. >> any pilot would feel right at home coming in here.
