5:05 am
to ensure that that didn't happen was to talk to him directly and tell him to cut it out. >> reporter: the president assured americans that each and every vote cast was legitimate. but that moscow's election tampering should concern everyone. and questioned how some republicans could believe putin's public denials rather than the conclusions of the u.s. intelligence community. >> over a third of republican voters approve of vladimir putin, the former head of the kgb. ronald reagan would roll over in his grave. >> merry christmas, everyone. merry christmas. >> reporter: continuing his thank you tour last night, donald trump avoided the topic of russian hacking, though, earlier in the day he acknowledged the hack revealed damaging information about the democratic national committee. and thursday wrote if russia or some other entity was hacking, why did the white house wait so

5:07 am
>> reporter: clinton speaking before a group of donors in manhattan thursday said the attacks were personal, but they affected all americans. >> this is an attack against our country. we are well beyond normal political concerns here. this is about the integrity of our democracy and the security of our nation. >> reporter: now president obama said he did not think clinton was treated fairly during the election and he caused some of the blame on that on the u.s. media saying covering of her and the issues was troubling. >> errol barnett, thanks opinion joining us with more on this is mike copkins. thank you for being here. >> good morning. >> reporter: donald trump at odds with the intelligence community since this whole hacking scandal began. he didn't mention it, though, last night at his rally. what do you make of that? >> i wouldn't rule out hearing more about this from donald trump. but it is worth noting that in the wake of his attacks on the
5:08 am
cia, he got a lot of pushback from conservatives and people in the media, especially who were big allies of his during the election. i think he might be realizing that there are political costs to going after the intelligence community and a lot of that will be friendly fire from fellow republicans. >> reporter: the fbi is now in concurrence with the cia that russia was behind this to specifically target hillary clinton and help donald trump win the election. republicans in congress sound like they want to open an investigation into this. how much can they temper his position? >> well, there was initial pushback from republicans. they didn't want to investigate at first. we heard from mitch mcdonnell, the senate majority leader. they seem to have come around to doing an investigation. remember, republicans control both houses of congress. at the end of the day, they are steering this thing and can decide how far they want to push it. i do think that republicans in congress are hoping that trump will become a little more hawkish on russia because the default position of the republican party at least pre-2016.
5:09 am
>> reporter: how do you see this playing out? a president what no has nominated rex tillerson for secretary of state who was good relations with russia but the hacking scandal escalating as it seems here. there is a friction point there, it seems. >> well, it has been clear throughout the election that donald trump has a pretty unorthodoxed view of russia and a lot of speculation about the various reasons why. what i think we do know is that donald trump clearly does not like all of these reports and all of these people talking about how russians helped him win the election. he sees that as undermining his victory. >> let's talk just to turn the corner a little bit. donald trump cancelled a press conference he was supposed to have of conflicts of interest as it intersects with his business. 60% think he is going to have a conflict when he is is in the white house. is he going to address this or pull a page from his tax returns to presumably hope it goes away? >> i think that is the strategy. he was supposed to have a press conference and cancelled it
5:10 am
september few vague tweets out about his plans saying he would make no new deals while he was president. no one knows what that means. my colleagues and the press would like to grill him on a a little bit but i think it's up to the media to make sure he is held accountable and hold a press conference and answers those questions. >> thank you for being with us this morning. donald trump continues to fill out his cabinet. on friday he nominated south carolina congressman mick mulvaney as his budget director. he was first elected to congress as part of the tea party wave in 2010. a founder of the conservative house freedom caucus a group of republican congress members who edged john boehner out of the house speaker's role. as budget director mulvaney will move through the president-elect's budget through congress. he requires senate approval. tomorrow on "face the nation," john dickerson's guest including former national security head tom donelan and henry kissinger

5:48 am
concluding kluger of "time." how concerned is the community about the changes in scientific changes? >> the community is concerned and should be concerned. look. global warming is an established fact. it's mutable and nonnegotiable and not subject to politics. global warming doesn't read tweets. it doesn't care about who won the electoral college vote. it's an immutable bit of science and what we are seeing is an administration that is choosing to appoint people who are hostile to that very idea, who, at best, will dodge it by saying i'm not a scientist, i don't know. well, listen to the scientists. 97% of whom say that global warming is real, it's happening and it's a deadly threat. >> jeffrey, what about the discrepancy between the agency heads and the civil servants who staff the agencies and done a large part of the climate work for the obama administration?
