7:04 am
winner was charged, that leaked nsa report was revealed on-line. it suggests russian intelligence tried to break into the u.s. electronic voting systems just days before the november election. now the intercept posted the classified document. cbs news has confirmed the report is legitimate and jeff pegues is in washington with the details from the documents. but we begin with jan crawford and the charges against the young woman accused of the leaking. jan, good morning. >> good morning. winner was arrested saturday in augusta, georgia. she's 25 years old, held a top secret security clearance at a government facility where she was just a contractor with pluribus international corporation. the justice department alleges winner printed out the classified document dated may 5th and admitted to removing, retaining and mailing it and the government found evidence that winner had e-mail contact with the news outlet from her work computer. president trump has called for a crackdown on leaks. he slammed the fbi on twitter in late february saying leaks could
7:05 am
have a devastating effect, but this isn't the first white house to crack down. remember the obama administration brought at least eight leak related prosecutions over eight years. winner remains in federal custody and she will have a detention hearing on thursday. if convicted she could face up to ten years in prison. we reached out to pluribus international for comment and have not heard back. charlie? >> thanks, jan. to jeff pegues with what's in the nsa report. allegedly leaked by reality winner. good morning. >> good morning. the top secret report was completed just last month and is an indication that u.s. investigators continue to gather new information about russian efforts to interfere in the election. investigators believe there were repeated intrusion attempts by russian hackers in the final days of the campaign. vladimir putin has consistently dismissed u.s. intelligence assessments. >> translator: i haven't seen even once any direct proof of russian interference in the presidential election in the
7:06 am
united states. >> reporter: but a top secret nsa report first published on the website the intercept, says hackers from russian military intelligence were trying to access voter registration information days before the election. the report, some of which is redacted, says hackers stole user credentials from a u.s. election software company in florida and then just over a week before the november 8th election, the hackers used those credentials to send fake e-mails laced with malware to 122 local government officials likely involved in the management of voter registration systems. >> what was your initial reaction when you found out that this was the russians hacking into the system? >> shock. and dismay, obviously. >> arizona's secretary of state republican michele reagan told us last summer russian hackers had been probing her state's voter information in the months leading up to election day.
7:07 am
at time arizona, illinois, florida, and nearly two dozen other states saw similar scanning, probing or breaches of their election systems. >> i think the real intent of this was for somebody to tell us that they could get information if they wanted to, to scare us into thinking that our elections aren't safe and that is the most dangerous thing of all. >> reporter: u.s. officials have consistently said that they do not believe russian hackers actually affected the vote count or the outcome of the election and even with this new information, sources say they stand by that assessment. but intelligence officials view this new information as further confirmation that russia interfered in the 2016 election. this morning the kremlin again denied any involvement. norah? >> jeff, thank you. anti-terror investigators in london are searching more locations for ties to saturday's deadly attack. people across britain paused this morning to honor the seven people killed.

7:09 am
next door" seen praying near an isis flag. butts alleged to have an associate of hate preacher anjem choudary. it goes further his neighbors reported him to an anti-terror hotline. this man was worried butt was radicalizing kids, saying things like -- >> if you are not muslim you don't follow muslim basics. you're going to hell. >> reporter: counter terrorism police said he had been investigated but no evidence he was planning a deadly suicidal assault. a second named suspect rachid redouane claimed to be moroccan and libyan not on police radar. more information is emerging about saturday night's attack. british media is reporting a dozen molotov cocktails were discovered in the back of the man that mowed down pedestrians that night. the victims of the attacks were honored at a vigil monday evening in london. among them, james mcmullen,

7:11 am
distracting attack from his infrastructure proposals. margaret brennan is at the white house with the latest. margaret, good morning. >> good morning. well president trump meets today with congressional leaders about health care and tax reform. this is part of a white house effort to keep the president focused on his own agenda. >> we're still stuck with an ancient, broken, antiquated, horrible system that doesn't work. >> reporter: the president's focus on monday was supposed to be on reforming air traffic control, part of his week-long initiative to overhaul the nation's infrastructure. but the president had his eye on other targets. including reviving his court-suspended temporary freeze on travel from six muslim majority countries. in a series of tweets the president insisted on calling it a travel ban and dismissed the federal court objections as simply a matter of political correctness. mr. trump's comments prompted attorney george conway husband
7:12 am
of kellyanne conway to tweet a rare public rebuke. the president's post may make some people feel better, conway wrote, but won't help get five votes in the supreme court which what is actually matters. sad. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: the president's own language monday contradicts his lawyers who have emphasized it is just a temporary pause, not a ban, and insists it's not aimed at muslims. >> this is not, i repeat, a ban on muslims. >> it's not a travel ban. >> reporter: federal courts have doubted that and suspended the president's executive order citing the backdrop of public statements by the president and his advisors. yesterday, white house spokesman sara sanders tried to downplay the discrepancy. >> look, i don't think the president cares what you call it, whether you call it a ban or a restriction. >> reporter: president trump also continued to feud with the mayor of london sadiq khan whose public statements the president
7:13 am
characterized as pathetic. khan suggested mr. trump is no longer welcome in london. >> i don't think we should be rolling out the red carpet to the president of the usa in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for. >> reporter: that's not the only distraction. yesterday the white house legislative affairs director admitted that having congress focus on the russia probe detracts from the trump administration's agenda. norah, that's making it harder for them to achieve their goals. >> all right. margaret, thank you so much. president trump will not claim executive privilege to stop james comey from testifying to congress thursday. the white house says the president wants to, quote, facilitate a swift and thorough examination of the facts sought by the senate intelligence committee. the fired fbi director is expected to tell senators about private conversations with mr. trump. the president can ask a judge to withhold information from those one-on-one discussions. but that could opens him to

7:15 am
see him for who they say he really is. >> reporter: bill cosby left a montgomery courthouse monday night after nearly ten hours of opening arguments and testimony. earlier in the day cosby smiled as actress keshia knight pulliam who played his daughter rudy huxtable on the cosby show accompanied him to court. >> i came to support because this is where you hear the facts, this is where issues happen. >> reporter: cosby's defense team targeted andrea constand's credibility contradicted her claim she didn't contact cosby after the alleged 2004 sexual assault. they said and constand spoke by phone 72 times and constand initiated 53 of the calls. the prosecution argued constand tried to maintain a sense of normalcy after the alleged incident and said the case is about trust, betrayal and the inability to consent. >> they both made very strong points. >> reporter: attorney dennis mcandrews was at the court. >> the prosecution was a more
7:16 am
clinical event by event approach and the defense approach was much more animated and aggressive. >> reporter: kelly johnson, prosecution's first witness, cried on the stand. she claims cosby drugged her with a white pill and made her touch his private parts in 1996. during cross-examination the defense cited a deposition johnson gave where she said the alleged incident happened in 1990. not 1996. >> this jury had a real poker face. i think they're taking the judge's instructions to heart that you don't decide this case until it's over. >> reporter: johnson is the only cosby accuser allowed to testify besides constand. at the start of the trial, the judge told the jury it is their job to find the facts. he told them not to be bogged down by taking notes and carefully listen to witness testimony. charlie? >> dimarco, thanks. apple unveiling its newest technology at its worldwide developers conference. the tech giant ceo tim cook

morning". that's steven colbert. he was talking about president trump's new proposal to privatize air traffic control. the president as you may know released a plan yesterday to remove operation from the faa. he claims taxpayer dollars were wasted trying to modernize the system. congress approves more than 30,000 federal workers will be deprivatized. major airlines and air traffic controllers union support the president's plan. here's a look at some of this morning's other headlines. politico reports vice president mike pence says the united states is committed to article 5 of the nato treaty the provision about collective defense. >> make no mistake, our commitment is unwavering. we well meet our obligations to our people to provide defense of all of our allies. an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.

deadly crash. >> i still shop at walmart. [ laughter ] you still can't beat their prices. >> reporter: comedian tracey morgan is back on stage using the memory of his devastatie i24 car crash as part of his netflix special. >> i could have been hit by bob's discount furniture truck. >> reporter: it's been three years since a walmart truck slammed into the back of morgan's limo van on the new jersey turnpike. his friends comedian james mcnair was killed and two others seriously injured. morgan suffered a broken leg, broken ribs, and what his lawyer describes as traumatic brain injury. one year after the crash he talked about the long road to recovery. >> there are times where i have my good days and bad days, where i forget things. you know. other times i got the headaches. >> reporter: the truck driver in the accident later pled guilty
7:35 am
to vehicular homicide. walmart took full responsibility for the crash and awarded morgan and one of the other passengers a settlement that has been reported to be as high as $90 million. now walmart's insurers are accusing the company of failing to properly investigate their claims. reportedly on june 19th a judge will decide whether tracy horgan must testify. walmart representative told cbs news the retailer has no position around the insurance company's dispute with mr. morgan and walmart was committed to do what was right to insure all those impacted by the accidents and we reached an amicable settlements. ohio casualty insurance company and liberty international underwriters told cbs news they don't publicly comment on matters in litigation but in court documents they write the depositions are quote relevant and necessary. they say that's because walmart relied on claims from morgan and
7:36 am
another passenger as the main reason for why this settlement was reasonable. the attorney who is representing tracey morgan joins us at the table to discuss. good morning. so why not let tracey morgan participate in this deposition. >> avenues victim once. we won't allow him to be a victim again. you have to understand that much of his injuries were emotional and psychological. he almost died. it was reported on the internet originally that he had passed. all they want to do now is harass him. i was the one who personally negotiated the settlement directly with walmart. tracy had nothing to do with it. tracy finally is getting back to his life. we have to let him get back to comedy. i do the lawyering. >> beyond the fact that he would, as you suggest be put at some damage to his own psyche, any legal risk? >> no. he faces no legal risk. that's not the issue.
7:37 am
the irving is that there's nothing relevant that he can say that can help their case. the insurance company, the insurance companies in this case have been taking the premiums from walmart for years and years and years. they know how to take the premiums they just don't know how to pay out the money. because walmart paid my clients directly, and now they are trying to get reimbursed from their insurers they don't want to pay. we know that there's nothing relevant. in the court papers they want a picture of his lamborghini. now tell me how that could be relevant to their case? and the reason that they put that in there is so that it can be picked up by the press and can harass tracy and me, have been harassing me trying to serve me with subpoenas -- >> they question the nature of his injuries. they said he was seen walking around disneyland. they wonder how injured was he? >> he was incredibly injured.
7:38 am
almost died. he was in a coma for more than a week. the fact that he has now gotten much better -- i want to you know that the walmart ceo called me and tracy personally after the money was paid just to apologize. okay. and maybe the insurance companies should take a page out of walmart's book. >> was it $90 million? >> no. not even close. >> higher or lower? >> i okay not tell you that. i wish i could. >> but what about an insurance company who disagrees with what the clients, of what a customer has paid and there must be cases somewhere like that. >> yes. >> the reason that we're talking about this because it's tracey morgan because they do this every day. insurance companies want to take the money they don't want to pay out the money. every single day all of my career i'm fighting with insurance companies to get them
7:39 am
to pay my clients. and i understood that and that's why i dealt directly with walmart in this case so that it wouldn't go on for three to five years before tracy and my other clients could put it behind them. >> is there any precedent for a company being able to claw back a settlement? >> well, they are not clawing back. walmart paid their money to my clients. >> that's done. >> that's done. we can't lose a dime, okay. we don't have a dog in the fight. we're not parties to the case. they are now telling walmart we will not reimburse you. >> could a judge compel him to do a deposition. >> i will do every single thing in my foreblock that. i'm pretty good at it. >> all right. >> i can tell you're scared. >> i'm shivering.

8:06 am
remains ceo. >> is anybody in fashion retail doing well? >> some are doing well for sure. for example the fast retailers are doing well, h&m and zara, they've been part of the pain of j. crew. drexler said they can change customer wins in weeks as opposed to months. >> mickey drexler has a great reputation and history in the business. how do you think he's handling this and feeling about this? jenna lyons also stepped down. what can you tell us about the new leadership? how will they turn it around? >> my sources are telling me again he was driving this change. he was a very aware that something needed to happen. this is not a story of a ceo being pushed out, an ugly board scenario at all. what i'm hearing about this new leader, 25 years in retail, most recently with west elm, a subsidiary of williams-sonoma, where he tripled sales, albeit

>> yes, exactly, charlie. when this company was taken private, a couple of years ago, they saddled it with a lot of debt with the belief they would grow and they'd be able to handle the payments and of course we've seen retail just have a tougher and tougher time because of as i said the fast retailers and because of companies like amazon. >> all right, mellody, i hope they can turn it around. >> still a great brand. >> and great prices. always good to see you. some of the world's biggest soccer stars are standing up for an 8-year-old girl who was mistaken for a little boy. ahead, how the confusion led to the team's disqualification fro,
