7:11 am
media. media. he said the terror group reaches out through social media sites like twitter identifies followes and sends them to encrypted web sites that are difficult to track. currently the bureau says there are hundreds of ongoing homegrown violent extremist investigations. director comey warned there may be thousands of people inside the u.s. consuming what he calls online poison from isis and said "i know there are more elton simpsons out there. we have not found and cannot see them." today the director will lead a conference call on this issue with police departments across the country. among the things that he will tell them is that the failed attack was not specifically directed by isis and that was also information that was sent out in a classified bulletin yesterday. norah? >> a dramatic assesment from the fbi chief about hundreds, maybe thousands of people across the country who are receiving recruitment overtures. very scary indeed. >> but not directed, that i say. >> yeah. this morning, the bulk collection of americans' phone records by the government is

7:14 am
a "60 minutes" report back in march found some of the chinese-made flooring had higher-than-allowed levels of formaldehyde. that chemical is known to cause cancer. in response, lumber liquidators gave air quality test kits to thousands of customers. anna werner is here with some of those results. anna, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, gayle. lumber liquidators said more than 26,000 kits have been given out and of those tests it says the vast majority came back within some health guidelines. but some customers we've spoken to say they're still trying to figure out what to believe and how to know whether their homes are safe. john mutters and his wife installed flooring from lumber liquidators in their lexington, kentucky home two years ago. how do you like it? >> we love it. it's great. >> lumber liquidators is the largest and fastest-growing retailer -- >> reporter: but after seeing the "60 minutes" report mutters orders two of the test kids offered by the company. what are you hoping to find snout. >> i'm hoping to find out the
7:15 am
level of formaldehyde is an acceptable level. >> "60 minutes" sent undercover investigators to three chinese factories that produce laminate flooring for lumber liquidators. they found box after box of floorboards with labels indicating they met strict california standards. in tests later commissioned by "60 minutes," 30 of 31 boxes of the product bought in the u.s. emitted as much as 13 times the amount of formaldehyde allowed by those standards. but lumber liquidators' founder tom sullivan told anderson cooper the flooring was compliance. >> we'll never sell something unsafe. >> reporter: the company now says 15,000 customers got air quality test kits and of 3,400 analyzed analyzed, over 97% had formaldehyde levels within the guidelines set by the world health organization. but in a lawsuit filed yesterday, california attorney alex robertson calls test results given to his clients false and deceptive. >> they've been tricked and
7:16 am
deceived into believing that their results are quote/unquote safe. we coen tend thatntend they're not safe. >> reporter: this man says part of the problem for consumers is that national regulations for formaldehyde aren't updated? >> this is the situation where consumers shouldn't have to ask questions about the safety of the products they should be marked on how the wood looks and costs. >> reporter: john mutters says if his test results come back too high for his comfort the company will be hearing from him. >> i have my family living here. i have an elderly father living here. if this floor is determined unsafe, then yes, i'll have to have a problem with that. >> reporter: lumber liquidators has hired a company run bid former fbi director louis freeh but told investigators last week in an s.e.c. filing that it faces an ongoing investigation by the department of justice.

7:18 am
politics -- don't eat a bacon sandwich in front of the cameras. the torrey-supporting press jumped on the image. miliband was not just a free-spending labourite whose policies might jeopardize the economic recovery he just didn't look like a prime minister. now he won't be. if political campaigns were set to music -- ♪ ♪ [ playing "let's get it on" ] >> it might have looked like this. ♪ trying to hold back the feeling for so long ♪ >> reporter: britain's sky news channel might have had fun with the election here but the results were no fun for the losers. nick clegg's liberal democrats who had propped up the conservatives in the last government were virtually wiped out. the scottish nationalists who wanted independent scotland were big wirns. they annihilated labour in what used to be its stronghold. and the other big losers, the pollsters. they got it wrong.
7:19 am
david cameron and his conservatives got it right. norah? >> mark thank you. everybody thought this race was going to be closer than it was and cameron walked away. >> the other victor was the independent party in scotland. won almost all the seats there. >> lesson do not eat a bacon sandwich in public. it lives forever. >> you never want to be ridiculed in politics. >> you can't take it back. >> not that there's anything wrong with bacon. he is a walking symbol of the cold war former kgb fighter tells "60 minutes" how he worked his way into sensitive areas

7:36 am
and kind of like a very difficult job. >> is zbigniew brzezinski. >> i'll let you pronounce it. >> why is he coming forward now. >> he's getting on in years. i think he wants to sort of resolve -- he has a lot of issues to resolve. he had a family here in the states, he has family in the -- in germany. he said he wanted to meet his maker with a clear conscience. it's also a great tale. i think he wants to maybe write a book. he hasn't written a book yet but i think he's interested in doing that. >> so do we know what information he gave to the russians and if there was any damage done to u.s. national security? >> i don't think that there was any damage done to national security. i think it was mostly commercial information. i think he gave them some very valuable computer codes that the russians needed and i think that was it. but the hard thing about doing espionage stories is they're impossible to fact check. >> yeah. >> this is all a nice neat little package. we talked to the fbi first and
7:37 am
then we talked to jack barsky and we talked to the fbi people that detained him and finally caught him. but the details of the case you don't know really whether -- because they're all classified. it's all classified? >> what's going to happen to him? >> well, he's never spent a day in jail. he was finally detained by the fbi after he stopped working for the russians. and basically by that time the berlin wall had fallen he was sort of trapped here. there was nobody on the other side that was going to bring him back or cared about him. and so they just made a deal with him, he was going to help them and tell them as much as he knew about the kgb and the operations and who the contacts were and who he dealt with and they let him go. and he's still consulting with the bureau. >> he sure seems to want to talk. can't wait to see it. >> any story about spies is a good story. thank you. you can watch steve's full report sunday on "60 minutes." learn how the fbi finally tracked barsky down and how he

8:33 am
popular mani-pedi. >> it started because i was getting a ped cure as women in new york do on my birthday. i said to the woman doing my toes, who works the night shift at this salon? she said, well i work the night shift. i said but it's the day. she said i work the day shift, too. she said i work 24 hours a day, six days a week on the seventh day, i go home to my apartment, sleep for hours and come right back. i thought this woman is enslaved. >> how long did you carry out this investigation of nail salons? >> this investigation took 13 months. i spoke to up to 200 manicurists. >> they even have to pay to start to work at a salon?
8:34 am
>> the man cureicureists have to pay to work their jobs and they have to work to earn around $30 a day. >> how common is it? >> i believe i'm speaking about the majority of the salons in the industry. interviewing all these workers, i found almost no good actors. >> are they individually owned or are they primarily owned by one person or company in. >> they're individually owned and it's about 80% korean immigrant owned, this industry. because of that there's a race-based caste system within the salon. you'll have women in the same salon getting paid different amount of money with hispanic workers at the bottom followed by chinese and beautiful young koreans are most desirable. >> do owners think they're doing anything wrong? >> the owners think they're doing something heroic they
8:35 am
believe they're employing unemployable people and that they're giving people a leg up. >> how is this legal? >> it's not legal. it's completely illegal. they're being robbed of their wages. it took me nine months to get information from the department of labor, and when i got the information, i found they rarely investigate nail salons. hardly any legal actions and almost no investigations. >> why can't the workers complain? are they in the country illegally? >> even if you're in the country illegally, you still have the right to be paid properly according to our laws. a woman told me she does have papers to work. she pretends she doesn't when she tries to get hired because bosses want the most vulnerable workers to hire. >> i'm sitting here with two broken nails. what should we do? what can we do? >> i had a hard time answering
8:36 am
that question. i had a hard time with this. maybe look for a punch card machine at the beginning of a salon so to show workers' hours are clocked. >> why you think there's been such an interest in what you wrote? >> two reasons. one, nails are universalized things. we all want to be rihanna. we can't be but we can all have her nails. so nails have become a totally accessible treat. everybody does. and, number two, think of the experience of getting your nails done. you're holding hands with this woman, you're looking her in the eye and you don't see her. >> i think it's because people secretly think there's something going on and you exposed that labor force and what's happening. >> i've been in these women's homes and they're 12 to a one bedroom. it's a terrifying experience.
8:37 am
>> i did not think it was that bad. i didn't. i'm trying to think what should we do? i'm still stumped by that. >> thank you so very much. on this special weekend, we'll look at the parents who raise patriots. >> i'm jordan brye. next, a story about my mom. >> and our mo
