7:01 am
7:02 am
stops traffic on a freeway. it was all caught on camera. >> >> rogue one is expected to be the biggest block buster of the holiday season. early tracking suggests the movie could pull in upwards of $130 million in the opening weekend but then again early tracking suggested that hillary clinton would be president right now. so you never know. you still have to go see the movie.
7:03 am
welcome to the weekend, everyone. i'm anthony mason with alex wagner. we have a great line-up. later we'll take you to a wine shop older than the united states. there you will meet a man whose job it is to sniff out fake bottles. some sold for tens of thousands of dollars. you will see how he does it. >> plus, an interesting side effect of nearly every major election. people don't travel. we'll show you why global disruptions and a weakening euro could save you money. >> his job is simple -- replace a legend. we'll talk with chris thile, the young musician taking over for garrison kieler as host of "a prairie home companion". russia's apparent interference with the u.s. presidential election. intelligence sources say u.s. officials belief russia not only tried to influence the election
7:04 am
but also worked to help donald trump defeat hillary clinton. >> the news was reported by the washington post. the paper says the cia shared with senators a secret assessment that electing trump was russia's goal. just over a month before the election, 17 u.s. intelligence agencies accused the russian government of hacking e-mails from the democratic national committee and hillary clinton's campaign which were then published on wikileaks. earlier intelligence assessments concluded moscow's actions were aimed at eroding confidence in the american electoral system. but according to the washington post, the latest cia assessment found the operation was aimed at boosting trump's chances of winning the white house. additionally the "new york times" reports that russia also hacked the republican national committee but didn't release any of that information. republicans deny this. >> the trump transition team responded with a statement reading in part these are the same people that said saddam
7:05 am
hussein had weapons of mass destruction. russia has in the past denied interfering in the u.s. election. there was no comment from the white house. >> the news came just hours after president obama ordered a full review of russian hacking during the campaign. for more on all of this we are joined by washington post columnist catherine powell. good morning. >> good morning. >> the trump campaign is issuing a fairly broad dismissal of the evidence. do you think there is any chance in the coming days that the president-elect changes his position? >> has the president-elect ever publically changed his position when it comes to his own legitimacy about the win? no. the transition team and trump himself will view it through a partisan lens regardless of what the results are and will say this is an attempt to delegitimize his win, his future administration, and therefore all of the conclusions that would come out of a report are suspect. >> according to the post report
7:06 am
this information was presented to a group of senators before the election but there was a partisan divide as to how to handle it. >> yes. because there is a question, again, about delegitimizing the potential win, delegitimizing the process. the american public has a right to know about any potential interference by a foreign entity into our democratic process, into the legitimacy of our elections. but there is a question about how to present this information without antagonizing the president-elect and how do you present this information without compromising the peaceful transition of power. >> it should be noted president obama apparently exhibited reluctance in terms of letting it come out to the public because he thought during the election cycle it would seem partisan. and donald trump is tweeting about "the apprentic" this morning. this doesn't seem top of mind. as it concerns the transition there is word out that rex
7:07 am
tillerson, president and ceo of exxon mobil might be donald trump's top pick for secretary of state. he has close ties to vladimir putin. do you think the pick will be under heightened scrutiny? >> of course. it would have been no matter what given that trump said flattering things about putin throughout the campaign saying we should have a warmer relationship with russia, et cetera, and has complimented putin's leadership. all of that and whatever business ties he might have to russia and russian businesses. all of that's called into question both what kind of relationship his campaign may have had with putin, secret or public, as well as what his policies towards this frenemy of ours would be going forward. this pick in particular inflames a lot of the concerns. >> thanks for being with us this morning. meanwhile, president-elect donald trump is expected to attend the army navy game today in baltimore. the fierce but friendly rivalry will perhaps echo internal
7:08 am
battles going on in the cabinet search. we have the latest on one more of the surprising developments within the transition. good morning. >> good morning. that's right. president-elect donald trump is more than halfway through nominating the cabinet. the most highly sought after position is that of secretary of state. yesterday one of mr. trump's key allies pulled out of the running. to a crowd in michigan, president-elect donald trump basked in the glory of turning the blue state red after a drawn out recount. >> by the way, i heard half an hour ago the courts ruled we totally won. it's over. >> reporter: mr. trump touted his transition choices and praised his future cabinet. >> i believe we are in the process of putting together one of the great cabinets that has ever been assembled in our nation's history. you're seeing that. >> reporter: one position left open, that of secretary of state. in a statement friday, mr. trump revealed that rudy giuliani, long on the short list for the
7:09 am
spot, removed his name from consideration in a meeting held november 29, the same day trump dined with mitt romney nearly two weeks ago. rudy giuliani said he with drew in part because of the drama surrounding the spot. >> the whole thing was becoming kind of very confusing. my desire to be in the cabinet was great, but it wasn't that great. >> reporter: senior transition adviser kellyanne conway says the decision for rudy giuliani to remove himself was mutual. >> he will be an informal adviser to the president-elect. he was incredibly loyal to donald trump, especially in the waning months of the campaign. >> reporter: transition sources tell cbs news romney and john bolton are the top contenders. rudy giuliani panned romney citing his past criticism of the president-elect. >> you can make friends and make up, but i would not see him as a
7:10 am
candidate for the cabinet. >> reporter: also the trump transition team is sparking alarm at the energy department sending officials there a probing questionnaire that asks for a list of all employees or contractors who attended meetings on carbon reduction and asks which programs within the department are essential to meeting the goals of president obama's climate action plan. cbs news also confirmed gary cohn, the current president of goldman sachs, was up for the position of director of the national economic council. cohn's appointment would give a wall street super power economic authority, the opposite of mr. trump's of then repeated anti-wall street campaign message. >> thank you. a note that later today president-elect trump will be interviewed during the army-navy game on cbs. tomorrow morning on "face the nation" guests include president-elect trump's senior adviser kellyanne conway plus
7:11 am
senators john mccain and bernie sanders. a federal government shutdown has been averted with less than an hour to spare. the senate passed the stop-gap spending bill by a vote of 63 to 36 last night. president obama signed the bill early this morning. the measure will keep the government running through april 28. the bill includes war funding and disaster aid for louisiana and other states. this morning, winter storm warnings are in effect from washington state to colorado. an arctic front that started in the pacific northwest is working its way east, bringing snow to the intermountain west and dropping temperatures from the plains to western new york state. elicott, new york, 50 miles south of buffalo it's been snowing off and on for days. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that's definitely the story here inesort where over 18 inches of snow has fallen within the last 24 hours.
7:12 am
the good thing is it's a light snow. very easy to maneuver around. what we dealt with getting here at times, whiteout conditions and roads that haven't been plowed. across the nation temperatures are dropping and in some parts of the country, snow piles are growing. in indiana, crews are trying to stay ahead of storms by pretreating roads with salt and brian. >> that 32-degree mark is critical. warmer, we get rain. just under, we get snow. of course we have to watch a bridge and pavement temperature. >> reporter: snow is swirling around the great lakes. president-elect donald trump's jet touched down amid a snow squall in grand rapids, michigan. it is also getting colder across the midwest. from north dakota to minnesota, temperatures are dipping into the single digits. meanwhile, oregon is thawing out after freezing rain made roads treacherous, forcing schools in the portland area to close early on friday.
7:13 am
back east, some are welcoming winter. >> we love snow. here at holiday valley and in the village, too. >> reporter: western new york skiers are pleased to hear the forecast means they can hit the slopes this weekend. >> the man-made snow is helpful. we can make denser snow. it becomes the base of the ski slope. then you have natural snow on top to make it fluffy and pretty. natural snow is great advertising for us. get people to think about skiing. >> reporter: if you can hear that sound behind me, that's one of the snow machines. the director of marketing tells me they have created enough snow to cover 73 football fields with a foot of snow. again, that's on top of what's already fallen in the last 24 to 48 hours. anthony? >> thank you. in case you forgot what winter looks like, there it is. for more on the weather the nation can expect we turn to ed
7:14 am
curran of wbbm tv. good morning. >> good morning. everywhere you look it looks like winter. 6 degrees in fargo now. cold temperatures once again today, nothing compared to what you will see by midweek. look at this. chicago at 6 degrees instead of the normal mid 30s for this time of year. so a real polar plunge as we head mid-week. wind chill advisory in north dakota where it feels like 25 to 35 degrees below zero. here's the snow in the northwest and future cast shows how the snow moves east. snow develops around chicago late this afternoon, continues until sunday night and then continues to the northeast. you will see it here by the time we get to early monday morning. winter storm advisories and mornings are up out to the northwest. here in the chicago area we have a winter weather advisory, but to the north in wisconsin, a winter storm watch there. finally as we move off to lake erie here, a lake effect snow

7:16 am
roof's newly released videotaped confession to fbi agents. >> did what? i know it's tough sometimes to say. >> it's not that i don't want to say it. i don't want to make myself seem guilty. i don't like saying it. >> reporter: for two hours he calmly outlined the details of the church massacre. >> did you shoot them? >> yes. >> what gun did you use? >> a glock .45. >> okay. okay. >> reporter: surveillance video shows lambs leading themselves to slaughter. mother emmanuel parishioners arriving for bible study in june of 2015. in walked dylann roof, his fanny pack carried a .45 glock pistol and seven magazines loaded with hollow point bullets.
7:17 am
the agent asked, why did you do it? roof said, i had to do it because somebody had to. blacks are raping and killing white people on the streets every day. what i did is still minuscule to what they are doing to white people every day. roof guessed he killed five people, but it was nine. his rampage targeted mother emmanuel as an historic black church. once inside, he opened fire when the faithful rose and closed their eyes in prayer. then he cautiously left the church, his right hand still held the pistol. roof told investigators, "i was in absolute awe that nobody was there, i peeped out the door and didn't see a cop. i kept the last magazine not because i was going to shoot cops, but shoot myself." >> i understand the harm he did. >> reporter: malcolm graham's sister cynthia was murdered in the church they grew up in. >> this was an attack on a race
7:18 am
of people, on the christian church, on humanity. >> reporter: graham wants roof to get the death penalty, a question of punishment that divides relatives of the murdered. at one point fbi agents asked roof whether he was guilty. he said, i am guilty. we all know i'm guilty. charleston, south carolina. the u.s. is putting more boots on the ground in syria at the same time it's pursuing a diplomatic solution to end the five-year-long civil war there at a regional security meeting in bahrain defense secretary ash carter said the u.s. will send 200 troops to syria in addition to the 300 already there. they will work to help kurdish and arab fighters capture raqqah. >> john kerry is in paris meeting to save aleppo from complete destruction. the russian defense ministry said more than 20,000 civilians
7:19 am
left eastern aleppo and more than 1,000 rebels laid down their arms. debra pota is watching the mass exodus of citizens. >> reporter: they came by the thousands and just kept on coming. on foot, in wheelbarrows, using makeshift stretchers, any way they could. exhausted, frightened, hungry, but alive. they have been walking over eight hours since escaping from rebel territory. this family told us they hid in the basement during the worst of the bombing. we don't even know where we are going, this mother of four told us, as long as it's far away from the explosions. early on friday morning there was a lull in the fighting. that's when thousands of civilians trapped in rebel-held aleppo made a run for it. now it is a desperate scramble to get out.
7:20 am
this man asked to get on the truck. there is no room, he's told. they have managed to squeeze him in and find a little space for a baby. others are just too tired to do anything. they wait for friends and family to collect them. they are so weary from years of war, already they have waited far too long. for cbs this morning saturday, debra pata, aleppo. time to show you some of this morning's headlines. the detroit news says congress managed to attach emergency aid for flint, michigan, in last night's bill to avoid a federal government shutdown. the measure includes $170 million in infrastructure costs to fix the city's contamination of lead in the drinking water system. the flint financing awaits the president's signature. >> the dallas morning news says nine police officers in arlington, texas, have been fired for exaggerating reports on the number of traffic stops

they made. the officers were initially put on paid leave back in the spring for what police officials describe as making a suspicious number of traffic stops. an investigation found no paper trail. the case has been referred to the county prosecutor for possible criminal charges. "le rolling stone" magazine reveals the secret to al gore's documentary on climate change will open next month. it was released in 2006 and grossed nearly $50 million. the former vice president said the world must rededicate itself to solving climate change. he says there is reason to be hopeful with solutions at hand. >> usa today reports comedian t.j. miller will host tomorrow night's critics choice award despite an arrest on a battery charge. questions about donald trump grew heated between miller and his car service driver leading
7:22 am
to miller slapping the man on the head. miller is due to appear in court next month. >> reporter: and the buffalo news says parents looking for the hard to find hatchimals may be in luck. the hatching eggs with the furry robotic animal inside are the hottest toy of the season. tomorrow they will hit the shelves in target with most stores enforcing a limit of two per person. the toy is priced around $59.99 but online sellers are asking three times that amount. i get to say hatchimals one more time. >> i'm glad my kids aged out of this. i remember trying to plan that must have gift. >> the elusive hatchimal. >> it's 22 aft

7:32 am
city's escalating violence. >> people respond to the feeling of disenfranchisement in a variety of ways. some may respond with violence. others respond in other ways. but it really is sort of a cancer on the fabric of the community. >> reporter: for cbs this morning saturday, dean reynolds, chicago. >> mvp would not comment on the lawsuit. the workers involved in the case are suing to end the discrimination and for lost wages. >> up next, fake news stories and wild conspiracies. the world of online media is starting to resemble a house of mirrors where you often can't trust what you see. a look at the real world
7:33 am
in medical news something we may have taken for granted, that life expectancy in america increases year by year. it's generally been true but the recent numbers tell a different story. the surprising reversal and what's behind it. >> plus the warning signs of diabetes, the lifestyle factors that put you at risk of becoming part of the epidemic. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday".
7:34 am of many pieces in my i havlife.hma... so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma
7:35 am
does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at and let roomba from irobot help with your everyday messes. roomba navigates your entire home. cleaning up pet hair and debris for up to 2 hours. which means your floors are always clean. you and roomba, from irobot. better. together. oh, it's actually...s your sfx: (short balloon squeal) it's ver... sfx: (balloon squeals) ok can we... sfx: (balloon squeals) i'm being so serious right now... i really want to know how your coffee is. it's... sfx: (balloon squeals) hahahaha, i had a 2nd balloon goodbye! oof, that milk in your coffee was messing with you, wasn't it? yeah. happens to more people than you think. try lactaid, it's real milk, without that annoying lactose. mmm. good right? yeah. lactaid. it's the milk that doesn't mess with you. mone hundredts thousand times a day, sending oxygen to my muscles. again!
7:36 am
so i can lift even the most demanding weight. take care of all your most important parts with centrum. now verified non gmo and gluten free. time now for morning rounds with dr. john lapuc and dr. karen arula. first up, life expectancy. the national center for health statistics compared the causes and patterns of death from 2015 and 2014.
7:37 am
for the most part is news wasn't good. life expectancy for the u.s. population as a whole fell from 78.9 years to 78.8. it's a small decline but a decline nonetheless. the first time since 1993 that u.s. life expectancy has fallen. the age adjusted death rate increased by 1.2%. doctor, when it comes to cause of death, how does 2015 compare? >> not well. the only cause of death that went down was cancer which went down slightly. death from flu and pneumonia, that stayed stable. of the others they all increased slightly. that's heart disease, cancer. we said did a little bit better. chronic lower respiratory disease, unintentional injuries, over doses, stroke and alzheimer's. finishing out the list of the top ten are diabetes, flu and pneumonia, kidney disease and
7:38 am
suicide. when you say you're cresting there you have to say what's going on and do we have to do something different? >> heart disease remains the leading cause. which factors play into that? >> it doesn't have to be that way. we don't have to watch our family members and co, woers die of heart disease. the only two risk factors we cannot change are age and history. it comes down to education, telling people the risk factors, awareness teaching people about signs and symptoms so they can act early, and prevention. we need to be screening people starting as early as age 20 for things like high blood pressure and high cholesterol and teaching people to have heart healthy lifestyle from the time they are children, not 40, 50, 60 getting a new diagnosis of coronary disease or having a heart attack. >> what should the take away be for health professionals? >> listen to tara. prevention. >> always.
7:39 am
>> always listen to tara. >> i like that. >> we like to do stuff to people after they get sick. prevention is the name of the game. if you look at the top things, unintentional injuries, over doses and substance abuse deaths, fentanyl went up dramatically. we have narcotic over mental health. it's so huge. how do we change the stigma so people can come forward and say they're having trouble. how do we increase prevention services and treatment services. it's all wrapped up. with the fentanyl over doses and narcotics we have to teach doctors how to prescribe better and think about pain control in a better way. >> next up, the distribution of diabetes. the cdc estimates over 20 million people have the condition where high blood sugar levels lead to severe
7:40 am
complications like amputations and blindness. a recent report looked at the incidence of diabetes. three states reporting the highest rates were alabama, west virginia, and mississippi. the lowest incidence was among people of utah followed by rhode island and colorado. some of these percentages are quite high. how prevalent is diabetes across the country? >> such a devastating disease for the individual. it inflicts collateral damage on society affecting 29 million americans, accounts for 20% of health care spending. it's in the top ten for causes of death and one of the leading causes of disabling disorders like amputation, blindness, kidney disease. this is a big problem that comes back to the need for screening and early intervention in people who may have risk factors. >> for folks who don't know a lot about diabetes, what's the difference between type 1 and type 2. >> good time for a primer.
7:41 am
it is confusing. insulin is a hormone that helps take blood sugar, glucose from the outside of a cell to the inside of a cell. once inside it can be used for energy and other things. in type 1 diabetes it's an auto immune disease. your own body starts attacking and destroying cells in the pancreas. you have too little insulin, the blood sugar builds up and you have increased blood sugar, not enough inside the cells. in type 2 there is plenty of insulin but your cells become less sensitive to its effects. one of the causes is obesity. with type 1 diabetes you give insulin injectable. type two there are ways to treat it with insulin, oral medications, lifestyle adjustments like diet, exercise and weight loss. sometimes if you just lose weight your type two diabetes
7:42 am
which is 95% of diabetes, that can actually go down. you may not need medication at all. >> there are a lot of americans whose blood sugar is higher than normal. how likely is this to develop into type two diabetes? >> you're talking about prediabetes. i see so many patients in my office with prediabetes. this is the beginning of diabetes where your blood sugar is higher than normal but not the level you consider somebody diabetic. it affects one in three americans in this country and 90% of the people have no awareness that they have it. without intervention, 15 to 30% of prediabetics will develop type 2 within five years. the nice thing is you can do things to try to reverse that. things like weight loss, exercise, and really changing your diet. finally, what you have been waiting for -- drones. the flying devices are popular with hobbyists and photographers, but do they have a future in the field of
7:43 am
medicine? according to a recent study in the journal transfusion the answer might be yes. researchers at johns hopkins university tested drones to see if they could successfully transport blood products. they conducted test flights lasting a little bit over 26 minutes. the drone ride didn't have a negative impact on the blood. so there could be a future for fast airborne delivery of life-saving transfusions when time is of the essence. >> here is something hot off the presses. there is a company called zip line. i have been in contact with them in the last 24 hours. they said starting monday there will be blood product delivery by drones in rwanda. especially during the rainy season it can be hard to get blood products one place to another. it's starting monday. >> it's a brave new world. >> it's happening. >> a peaceful good use for drones. >> thank you for your time. from rumor to reality.
7:44 am

conspiracy theories thrive on the internet. what happens when they make the jump from the online world to the one we live in. last week's terrifying incident in a washington restaurant is a case in point. 28-year-old edgar welch read an outlandish story online that the pizza restaurant was home to a child ring. he showed up at the restaurant with a gun and now faces felony charges. joseph parent, professor of

political science and co-author of "american conspiracy theories" lt. in studio we are joined by legal analyst ricky cleman. good morning. joe, let me start with you. in an interview yesterday the executive editor of the "new york times" said he wished he had taken the news more seriously. when you read this story for the first time were you surprised by the traction it gained? >> frankly i'm surprised it doesn't happen more often. there are a lot of people, in fact a majority of americans believe in some conspiracy theory or another. it only take as small number of people who believe it to act on it. >> why do people believe in conspiracy theories like this, joe? >> there are a complex number of factors that contribute to this. it seems to be that generally people are more prone to believe in conspiracy theories and other people are less prone to it.
7:49 am
you want people to be sensitive to threats and other people to be less sensitive and something in between. >> ricky, a young man showed up at a pizzeria. is there legal recourse in this age when you have real world repercussions like the ones we saw this week? >> not much, i'm sorry to say. let's look at what happened at the pizzeria. when someone shoots off a gun we are glad no one else was injured or killed. of course you could have repercussions against the shooter. what happens when something like this starts online? if you have a direct threat like we did with the sandy hook deniers. when someone threatens a parent that you're going to die, that's a direct threat. that can be prosecuted because someone posted that on the internet. when it comes time for going criminally first let alone civilly, after a website or provider it's not going to
7:50 am
happen. i even mean civilly. let's look at the analogy. we used to say in the world of free speech it was okay to have, of course, the first amendment we cherish. you couldn't yell "fire" in a crowded theater because that's a clear and present danger. that's the same thing as a threat. when you get to the conspiracy theories that abound there is not much you can do. >> wow. >> joe, is a conspiracy theory or fake news, do they gain credibility when someone connected to authority essentially perpetuates it? >> absolutely. that's one of the best reasons conspiracy theories spread. since they aren't partisan in nature, they tend to be contained because people are just as likely on the left as the right to believe in them. people on the left tend to believe bad things about people on the right and vice versa. the best predictor of conspiracy theories are the party of the
7:51 am
president. now that we have a republican in office we expect more conspiracy theories from the left. >> what's the best way to dispel a conspiracy theory? >> to be kind, patient, understanding of people's perspectives. a lot of the people the harder you try to dispel it, the more they want to believe it because they think you are part of the plot and you are trying to man handle their beliefs. if you listen to them, try to reason and ask them maybe to apply the same standards of evidence to this belief they do to other beliefs, i think that's probably the best way to help people have at least an exchange of ideas and maybe you will convince some people some of the time. >> joseph parent, ricky cleman. thanks for being with us. they clashed on the gridiron in the 19th and 20th century. now in the 21st, that's how long the army-navy football rivalry has been going on. the teams take to the field for an epic battle later today.

welcome to "cbs this morning saturday." i'm anthony mason. >> i'm alex wagner. airline passengers could be allowed to make cell phone calls during flights but opponents say regulators should think again. >> and a wine detective who can spot a fake bottle of wine supposed to be worth thousands. you will see how he does it. >> and he has the difficult job of filling the shoes of radio legend garrison kieler as host of "prairie home companion." chris thile performs. >> our top story, the allegation that russia interfered with the
8:01 am
u.s. presidential campaign with the goal of getting donald trump elected. the washington post first reported the story last night. the newspaper said the central intelligence agency told a group of senators in a secret assessment that russia's interference was aimed at helping trump. the post quotes a u.s. official briefed on the presentation as saying, quote, it is the assessment of the intelligence community that russia's goal here was to favor one candidate over the other to help get trump elected. that's the consensus view. >> intelligence agencies linked russia to this year's cyber attacks on the democratic national committee and hillary clinton's campaign. this morning the "new york times" reports russians hacked the republican national committee but didn't release any information. the gop is denying this. the trump transition team referring to the cia responded by saying in part, quote, these are the same people that said saddam hussein had weapons of
8:02 am
mass destruction. the election ended a long time ago. the white house declined to comment. president obama ordered an investigation of russia's involvement in the u.s. election. mr. obama wants intelligence agencies to look into increased malicious cyber activity that took place around the time of the election. for more on this investigation and what it might uncover we are joined by james norton, the president and founder of play action strategies, a cyber security forum. good morning, james. let me begin with the scope of the investigation the president announced and the news we are hearing last night. where do the two dove tail as far as you know? >> you need to take this in two different parts. first of all, the facts are that the united states security networks or internet networks are at risk. they are certainly an unlocked door. they have been attacked certainly with the office of personnel management, with target, home depot, now with the
8:03 am
dnc hack that happened over the summer. the fact is the security networks are unlocked and need security. the second part is the foreign policy impacts and what exactly the u.s. should do once this report comes back from the obama administration as given to congress. congress decided to step up in this case. they have been a little bit absent in terms of cyber security the last couple of years. given the election and the fact that it looks like it could be the russians that they are putting pressure and the obama administration said, okay, we've got a limited amount of time left here that we are in office. we'll come back and issue a fact-based report and give it to congress to see what they want to do next. >> what will the investigation involve and who will be involved? >> so they are going to pull together a large group within the federal government that the defense department, the intelligence agencies, department of homeland security, the state department, state and local officials will come together to do essentially a national intelligence estimate and bring together the facts
8:04 am
they believe. that will also not only have information on what signatures might be electronically but an effort to pull together human intelligence as well. >> james, how much of the report should we expect to be released to the public? >> that's really going to be a negotiation, i think, between the u.s. congress and the obama administration. i think it will be incumbent upon congress to release as much as possible given the fact this has gotten so much attention. this isn't the first time in our nation's history we have had an october surprise dating back to reagan and the carter election back in 1980. there was a lot of discussion about negotiation with the hostages. so i think the american people are looking for confidence, looking for congress to step up. even elijah cummings said the other day it would be malpractice for congress not to look into this and do more effort. given the public hearings in january, february and march we'll learn quite a bit of information.
8:05 am
>> do you think it's possible there were more than hacks involved here, that voting systems, election systems may have been breached in some way? >> well, you know, voting systems aren't secure. they were bought for efficiency. at the state and local level there isn't a lot of security. it's not a requirement and never has been. there isn't a lot of funding. one thing congress has to look at working with gov no, sir and state and locals is how to secure the networks, the funding that's needed. ohio called out the national guard for the election because they weren't sure what to do to secure the network. they will have to look at things like this and think about how to secure these things. that will be one of the issues that congress will have to look at. it should be in the report in terms of what the vulnerabilities are at that level. we don't have anybody looking at it either. >> james norton, thanks for
8:06 am
that. >> thank you for having me. benjamin netanyahu is counting the days until the start of the trump administration. in an interview for "60 minutes" benjamin netanyahu who has often been add ot odds with president obama said he's never been as hopeful about israel's place in the world as he is now. he said it will only grow once mr. trump takes office. >> i know donald trump very well. i think his attitude, his support for israel is clear. he feels warmly about the jewish state, the jewish people. no question about it. >> with trump do you think israel will not be as at odds with the united states as you have been under the obama administration? >> yeah. we had -- i had differences of opinion with president obama. most well known of course is iran. >> was it personal between the two of you?
8:07 am
>> no. no. i don't think so. i think -- suppose we had the greatest of personal chemistry, okay? so, what? you think that wouldn't stand up against the iran deal if i thought, as i did, that it endangered the existence of israel? of course i would. >> you can see all of leslie staal's interview tomorrow on "60 minutes" here on cbs. sweaters and shovels are getting a workout by the millions this weekend. an arctic front that started in the pacific northwest is working east bringing snow to the intermountain west and dropping temperatures from the plains to western new york state. there's been a steady stream of lake effect snow in buffalo, new york, this morning with at least a foot expected by tomorrow. the midwest could be in store for a foot of snow by sunday from minnesota to chicago. >> now this. the days of relative quiet in the cabin of a commercial flight may be numbered. federal regulators are
8:08 am
considering a plan to allow airlines to offer passengers in-flight cell phone service. you heard it right. at least one group is urging regulators to drop the calls. here's the story. >> some people have a lack of respect or courtesy on the phone. >> airline passengers are worried about the possibility of in flight phone calls. the department of transportation's plan would allow the option to provide the service. if they do, the carriers would be required to inform passengers in advance that on board calls are allowed. tara from florida would opt out. >> i may go with the airline that didn't allow it. it could get out of hand. >> we'll fight this. >> reporter: sara nelson is the president of the association of flight attendants. >> if this is enacted we will fight it in congress. flight attendants will have to deescalate more conflict which
8:09 am
creates a safety and security threat for everyone on board. >> reporter: while cell phone calls are banned on planes it doesn't extend to calls placed through internet connections. something that's become increasingly available on commercial flights. delta, american, and southwest said they have no plans to change the policy. united and jetblue are both reviewing the proposal. some passengers like margie are already on board. >> with the technology and everybody uses today, that would be a great thing. >> reporter: transportation pback against reports on this yesterday with a tweet. it says we are seeking feedback on how far to go in restricting calls. it all may be a moot point. the public has 60 days to comment. by then a new trump administration would have the final say anyway. >> thank you. the nobel prizes are being awarded today in norway.
8:10 am
the president of colombia collected his prize moments ago calling it a gift from heaven. he was chosen for efforts to end the 52-year conflict with fark. more than 200,000 people died during the fighting between the rebels and the government. also today, singer bob dylan is being awarded the nobel prize for literature in stockholm. he won't be there. instead patty smith will be there to represent him and perform a dylan song. an indiana college basketball tradition is 20 years old. >> from the near side again and does it again. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: fans at bay tor university stormed the court in the first half. each year on the friday before finals the men's basketball team plays what's called the silent night game. the fans who come dressed in costumes don't make a sound until the team scores ten points.
