geneva collided cou, the pilot , with his drone. he's convinced the plane was in the collision. the plane did land safely. it was examined and allowed to continue on its flight later yesterday afternoon. police are taking the report seriously. they issued a statement saying, "an object believed to be a drone had struck the front of the aircraft," and they've launched an investigation. the british have been struggling with drones like everybody else. they're everywhere but are not supposed to be around airport for obvious reasons. there are strict penalties. of course, first you have to find the drone, and then you have to find whoever was flying it. there is also the pilots association saying that they have been calling for experiments to see what would happen when a drone did collide with an airport. now that that's happened, luckily the damage was not serious. >> thank you very much. about

possible crime. one of his sisters said mccollough raped her as a teenager. he was acquitted of rape but later stood trial for maria's murder. unable to present his alibi evidence because most of his witnesses were dead, mccollough was found guilty. is it possible then that you were acquitted of what you did do and convicted of what you didn't? >> that could be. >> reporter: is that what happened? >> don't know. i may have been a sinner, but i'm not a murderer. >> reporter: mccollough hasn't been exonerated, but his conviction has been overturned which means that he could technically be retried for the murder, although that does seem unlikely. and -- >> why does he have an alibi at the trial -- >> it was documented in fbi reports. but most of the agents who wrote the reports were dead or couldn't testify. they were to

♪ good morning. monday, april 18th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there's more real news ahead including democratic presidential candidate bernie sanders. the vermont sanders is drawing huge crowds ahead of the primary. sanders on how he plans to grab a surprise win tomorrow. first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. 60 high-water rescues and counting. some parts have received more than 16 inch of rain. the earthquake was enotough bring down this bridge. people are using their bare hands to pull neighbors from the rubble. dontrald ump ntsb eeds to r his campaign. he will have a chance after a string of delegate losses to ted cruz. now they're back fighting

[ laughter ] i'm charlie rose with e gayl king and norah o'donnell
severe weather stretching from the dakotas to texas. dramatic video shows a series of lightning strikes overnight outside of houston. thunderstorms are rocking texas. >> torrential rain and flooding led to more than a dozen high-water rescues in houston overnight. the city has activated its emergency operations center. schools across the city are closed. >> tomorrow's new york primary will hand out nearly 350 delegates, 247 democrats, and 95 republicans. every one counts especially for gop candidates facing a possible contested convention. donald trump leads nationwide, but ted cruz is still outmaneuvering him. cruz swept all 14 of wyoming's delegates at this weekend's state convention. trump says he knows the delegate rules but ignores them because he wants to reform the system. >> it newest poll shows hillary clinton leads by ten points in new york. bernie sanders drew a huge crowd yesterday in brooklyn. event organizers say more than 28,000 people came to hear the brooklyn-born senator rail against bigon
>> and supporters in california protested clinton fundraiser hosted by george clooney. tickets started at $33,000 a person. protesters threw fake cash at clinton's motorcade. clooney says most of the money raised will go to congressional candidates. >> i'm a democrat. so if you're a republican, you're going to disagree, but we need to take the senate back because we need to confirm a supreme court justice. because that fifth vote on the supreme court can overturn citizens united and get this obscene, ridiculous amount of money out so i never have to do a fundraiser again. >> clooney says he think the clinton campaign hasn't done a good job of explaining its fund-raising. vermont senator bernie sanders joins us. we're pleased to have him back at studio 57. welcome. >> good to be with you. >> you saw what george clooney says. he's trying to raise money to help hillary clinton because he wants to see a lot of democrats elected because they'll change
>> well, i'm a big fan of george, but i think there is a different way to do it. that's what our campaign is about. you can raise large sums of money from individual contributors. we get it, $27 apiece, seven million individual campaign contributors. you don't have to be dependent upon big money to run a winning campaign. of course we want more democrats in the senate. want to regain control of the senate, do better in the house. but again, you can do that without being dependent on the top 1% for your contributions. >> i think the question is, you're an independent running on the democratic party ticket. are you going to help other democrats raise money to win the united states senate? have you done that? >> absolutely, of course i have. if you look at the letters that i have sent out in support of other united states senators, i've raised many millions of dollars. let me tell you something else, and i say this very sincerely. and i think the polls indicate this. for democrats to do well, not only at the highest level but in the senate races and in the house races, we need a large
doubt that a bernie sanders winning the nomination and being the democratic candidate will in fact create the kind of excitement and large voter turnout not only to win the white house but to regain control of the senate, to win governors chairs all over the country. >> a big day in new york. polls are showing hillary clinton is leading you by ten points. what do you see in the polls that the rest of us don't, that you feel confident? >> we've won eight out of the last nine primaries and caucuses. i think we have a lot of energy as indicated by the 28,000 people coming out of the rally in brooklyn and other very large rallies we've had. if the voter turnout is high, i think we are going to do very well. that's been the story of this campaign. voter turnout, well, we will probably not do well. also, very often polling underestimates our strength. that's -- in michigan, a poll had us 20 points behind. the day before the election, we ended up winning. >> independent voters can't vote -- >> now you're on to a big issue. nothing much i can do.
law. what it says to the many hundreds of thousands or more independents who would like to vote tomorrow for me or for anybody, they can't participate. i think that that's wrong, and that does hurt us. we win independent voters -- >> you also know this, she's way ahead in superdelegate. donald trump says the republican system is fixed. >> rigged -- >> what? >> rigged. >> yeah. >> is he stealing my terminology here? nothing this guy won't do. >> how bad is the democratic system? >> i have serious problems with it. this is the establishment folks. these are elected officials, these are money people who are superdelegates. and the truth is most of them are now supporting hillary. but let me say this -- as you may know, in poll after poll including your own polls here at cbs, i run much longer against donald trump than does hillary clinton. and the reason for that, by the way, is we had a lot of independent voters. i think
superdelegates and others will say, you know, we've got to beat trump. bernie is the stronger candidate. >> what if in fact you're winning the contests, the last six or seven, but she's getting a significant number of the delegates? the delegates will nominate the candidate. >> right. we think that there is a path toward victory. >> which is? >> winning delegates. in other words, california -- >> how you do do it? >> by getting more delegates than she. does for example, we have won eight -- >> you haven't been doing that is the point. >> i would say that we have cut her lead by one-third in the last month. that's pretty good. that's what happens when you win eight out of nine caucuses and primaries. we'll see what happens tomorrow. i won't speculate. you've got california, you've got oregon, you've got pennsylvania -- >> what does it mean if you lose in new york? >> what does it mean if i lose? it means that i lose. >> what does it mean for your campaign? >> we're going all the way. we're going all the way through california, going into the convention in philadelphia. we think we have a path toward
every vote that's out there. >> senator, you've made an issue abut transparency. hillary clinton -- today is tax day. we're paying our taxes. hillary clinton has released the eight years in addition to ones before. that you only released one and did it on friday. >> yeah. >> hy haven't you done that? >> i will tell you the reason. it sounds too simple, but it's true. in our family, we don't have 15 accountants. my wife works -- >> you have to pay your taxes on time like the rest of us. not that hard to release your summary -- >> first of all, we have released our taxes -- >> one year. >> we will release -- i've said we will release more, and we will release more. what it will end up showing is that our total income is less than the amount of money that hillary clinton got for one speech. sorry, nothing very exciting. >> i was surprised -- >> what is the suspicion? >> people who don't release their taxes -- >> we are going to release our taxes, so let's end the suspicion. it's the question, we are occupied with the campaign right now. we will. i said we will,
>> you're starting a political revolution. what scares a lot of people. what does that mean? and the other thing i hear about you, no disrespect intended, but he's an older candidate. how is he going to make this work? the only people i hear saying that, by the way, are older people. young people are not saying that -- >> the reporters -- the reporter who are following me around on the campaign trail -- >> no -- >> they're saying, stop it, you're going too far, too fast! >> your wife when she joined you last time -- i miss her today -- she said he has the constitution of a 16-year-old. how do you address issue about you, the political revolution, the old guy on the campaign? >> political revolution is very important part of what this campaign is about. and this is what it means -- it means that given the nature of economics and politics in america today, where wall street and wealthy campaign contributors in the corporate media have so much way that the only way to transform america, we deal with paid family and meal leave,
inequality, no president, not bernie sanders or anybody else, can do it alone. you need millions to stand up and demand a government that represent all of us, not just the 1%. that's what i mean by that. >> okay. >> here's an issue that means a lot. a new york tabloid, "the daily news." it is about 9/11. the bill in congress about suing saudi arabia. you favor? >> yeah. >> so -- >> no, no, been suing saudi arabia. >> sorry. >> it is about suing any government, not just saudi arabia, that may have been involved in terrorism which kills americans. >> you support it. president obama says don't do it because it will open us up to a lot of suits. and the saudi government has threatened to sell a lot of their things they're holding. >> president obama has a valid point, and it concern me. what's also involved is, i believe, 28 pages ofss
information on 9/11. >> have you read them? >> no, i have not. and what i think there is some speculation, and i'm not into speculation, is it may indicate that part of the saudi family may have funded some of the terrorists. look, let's be honest about saudi arabia. this is one of the wealthiest families in the world. this is a family that spreads this virulent extremist ideology which is extreme islam. they set up schools all over the world teach this. i have real concerns about that. i think getting the truth out about the role saudi arabia may be playing is good -- >> the president can release -- >> yes, he can -- >> the 28 pages. >> they radio-- they are lookin releasing them, i think they should. >> did you watch "saturday night live"? you were on it again. >> i was busy running around out there. >> do you enjoy
>> larry david is a brilliant guy. he acts more like me than i do. >> as a member of the united states senate, you are allowed to read the 28 pages. will you read them? >> will i go read -- >> do you think you should know about them if you're running to be commander in chief? >>y yeah. the difficulty is if you read them, you're going to ask me, you'll say, you read them, what's in them. and i have to tell you honestly, i have not yet. >> okay. i was asking do you think you should -- you can say it's classified information until it's released. >> yeah. i could. >> thank you, senator. thank you. >> great to see you. thank you. ahead, how to protect your
