5:32 pm
tampering with the 2016 u.s. election. less than 72 hours before a face-to-face meeting between mr. trump and vladimir putin. the indictment handed out by a federal grand jury alleges the russians hacked the computers of the democratic party organizations, including the clinton campaign. paula reid has details of the charges and the reaction. >> reporter: announcing the charges, deputy attorney general rod rosenstein said 12 russian intelligence agents hacked multiple democratic party targets in 2016. >> the units engaged in active cyber operations to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. >> reporter: rosenstein said he briefed president trump before he left on a trip that will culminate monday in a meeting with russian president vladimir putin. >> it is important for the president to know what information we have uncovered, because he's got to make very important decisions for the country. >> reporter: the indictment alleges the russians infiltrated the democratic national committee, congressional campaign committee, and hillary clinton campaign.
5:33 pm
and on july 27, 2016, hackers tried to access hillary clinton's personal accounts just hours after then-candidate trump said this about her missing e- mails: >> russia, if you're listening, i hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing. >> reporter: in one of the most damaging attacks, a russian intelligence agent allegedly sent a phishing e-mail to john podesta, tricking him to click a link that gave hackers access to his e-mail account. 50,000 of his e-mails were stolen. a similar technique was used to break into other democratic party servers, and the russians moved some of the stolen data through servers in arizona and illinois. at one point the russians watched a party employee as she typed in user names and passwords. then the russians leaked the information, much of it damaging to hillary clinton, through two fake online personas, d.c. leaks and guccifer 2.0. the white house emphasized no one in america is charged and no
5:34 pm
one is implicated. before the charges were announced, president trump took another swipe at the mueller investigation. >> i think we're being hurt very badly by the-- i would call it the witch-hunt. i would call it the rigged witch-hunt. >> reporter: the russian government denied the allegations, claiming they're designed to spoil the atmosphere before the russian-american summit. the president said he would bring up hacking with president putin. >> i will absolutely bring that up. i don't think he'll have any, gee, i did it, you got me. there won't be a perry mason here, i don't think, but you never know what happens, right? >> golodryga: paula joins us from washington. paula, these indictments come as pressure continues to mount from the white house and some republicans for the mueller investigation to come to an end. how does today's news impact that push? >> reporter: well, sources tell me the special counsel will continue to work through the end of the year. they're gathering evidence and preparing for two trials of paul
5:35 pm
manafort. the president and his allies would like this to all wrap up soon, but the fact is that manafort's trials won't end until november at the earliest, and the fact that sources have confirmed that there are still witnesses being brought before the grand jury suggests that there are likely more indictments coming. >> golodryga: all of this on mueller's time. paula reid, thank you. the president's visit to britain today included pomp at the palace, protests in the streets of london and backpedaling in ere prime minister's garden from some comments the president made about her in an interview. here's weijia jiang. ♪ ♪ >> reporter: president trump's flair for breaking convention was nowhere in sight as queen elizabeth welcomed him and the first lady to windsor castle. spent 48 minutes inside chatting over tea. in central london, chaos replaced decorum. >> say it loud, say it clear!
5:36 pm
>> donald trump's not welcome here! >> reporter: as tens of thousands of demonstrators jammed the street, protesting the president's presence and his politics. >> fake news. >> reporter: the president has been playing defense since last night, when britain's top tabloid, "the sun," published an interview in which he trashed prime minister theresa may's policies. >> i didn't criticize the prime minister. i have a lot of respect for the prime minister. >> reporter: but audio recording of his remarks captured the president's criticism on many issues, including may's strategy to remove the u.k. from the european union. >> i would have done it much differently. i actually told theresa may how to do it, but she didn't agree. she didn't listen to me. >> reporter: he even threatened to kill a bilateral trade deal, but by their joint press conference, the president had changed his mind. >> i don't know what they're going to do, but whatever you do is okay with me. that's your decision. whatever you're going to do is okay with us. just make sure we can trade together.
5:37 pm
that's all that matters. >> reporter: president trump doubled down on his claim in the interview that immigration was ruining europe's culture. >> i know it's politically not necessarily correct to say that, but i'll say it, and i'll say it loud. >> reporter: both leaders focused on their nation's alliance, even holding hands at one point to show they still have a special relationship. and we should note that the president is in scotland tonight. weijia jiang joins us now from london. weijia, aside from the controversy surrounding the president's comments, i want to talk more about the two leaders appearing to be on the same page about that bilateral trade deal. how significant is that? >> reporter: well, the president was upset, because the prime minister plans to keep the u.k. and the e.u. in a free market for goods, but the president completely reversed his comments that a bilateral deal with the u.s. would likely be killed as a result of that. and it is significant that today the two leaders agreed to at
5:38 pm
least pursue a free trade deal after the u.k. exits the e.u. bianna? >> golodryga: weijia jiang traveling with the president, thank you. let's turn now to margaret brennan, our senior foreign affairs correspondent and moderator of "face the nation." margaret, great to see you. vladimir putin has long denied ordering russian meddling in the u.s. election, but these indictments lay out for the first time we should note a direct link to the russian government. how much additional pressure does that put on president trump going into this meeting on monday? >> well, it boxes him in a little bit here. we know the two leaders are expected to meet one on one for between 30 to 60 minutes. so that means we're going to have to rely on the president's own retelling of that conversation to know exactly how he confronts putin. what we do know is that today's indictments directly contradict the denial made by vladimir putin to ambassador john bolton just two weeks ago. he said the russian state had nothing to do with the hacking. interesting to hear from the white house today. they're giving some diplomatic
5:39 pm
wiggle room to the president by continuing to refer to this as an alleged hacking rather than facts, now established by both u.s. intelligence and the special counsel. >> glor: we know that today's indictment has led some democrats to call for the meeting to be canceled. the white house says that will not take place. the meeting will, in fact, go on. but how will european countries feel about president trump's comments to u.s. allies? >> reporter: flabbergasted was the word a european ally used, bianna, when describing to me president trump's combative message, particularly at nato. they're asking if the founding principle of nato, that an attack on one is an attack on all, still applies if president trump is publicly doubting the value of that alliance. another concern here is the contradictory and very inconsistent messages being sent by the president's national security team, who see putin as an adversary, versus president trump's friendly outreach. >> golodryga: margaret brennan, thank you so much for your insights. we will see you sunday morning. cbs news coverage of the
5:40 pm
helsinki summit begins sunday on "face the nation" and continues monday on "cbs this morning," on our streaming news service cbsn, and right here on the "cbs evening news" with jeff glor. the president told reporters he plans to discuss with putin ways to substantially reduce the number of nuclear weapons the u.s. and russia have stockpiled. as david martin reports, this comes as both nations are racing to develop an entirely new kind of weapon. >> reporter: when vladimir putin showed off what he said was a hypersonic cruise missile, he gave the world a brief glimpse of a secret arms race. it pits the u.s. against russia and china in a contest to build weapons that can fly 10,000mph, more than ten times the speed of sound. that's just many, many times faster than any aircraft has ever flown. >> it is. and it's quite an advantage. if anybody could ever do that. >> reporter: john wilcox is a vice president at northrop grumman, which flew the first hypersonic aircraft back in 2004. >> launch, launch. >> reporter: it only flew for
5:41 pm
about ten seconds, but northrop grumman is now conducting tests as part of the pentagon's top- secret efforts to develop hypersonic weapons that can fly longer and further. >> this is the hypersonic pulse facility for aerodynamic testing of hypersonic vehicles. >> reporter: he took us into a test chamber on condition we would not reveal its location. it is a giant air gun which fires bursts of gas at incredible speeds and pressure to simulate the conditions of hypersonic flight. >> the gasses come down the air gun and hit right back here at the plate. >> reporter: that's a pretty hefty piece of steel. >> it is. it is very hefty. >> reporter: look how the gasses burst through the steel plate. that plus temperatures of 2,000 degrees are what a hypersonic aircraft would have to survive. >> we have a test article we're trying to emulate in the conditions of the hypersonic, it will be in here. >> reporter: there is something in there now. >> there is. it is shrouded right now for security purposes. >> reporter: in other words, you don't want us to see what it looks like? >> nope. some day you may.
5:42 pm
>> reporter: wilcox estimates a working hypersonic weapon is still five to ten years away. this test took place five years ago. since then the pentagon has classified all its work on hypersonic weapons. the pentagon has declared hypersonics its number-one technical priority, but the official in charge of the program recently acknowledged the u.s. is playing catch up with both russia and china. bianna? >> golodryga: david martin with the future of military weaponry. thank you. in pakistan today, politics turned deadly. a suicide bomber killed more than 120 people at a campaign rally near the afghan border. a candidate for the regional parliament is among the dead. isis claimed responsibility. attacks have been increasing in the run-up to the july 25 election. and coming up on the "cbs evening news," a jury awards billions of dollars in damages in a baby powder lawsuit.

5:46 pm
>> i was surprised when i developed some indigestion, and within a matter of a week or so i was told i had ovarian cancer. >> reporter: but the science linking johnson & johnson's products to cancer is mixed. the american cancer society says there is very little evidence at this time that any other forms of cancer are linked with consumer use of talcum powder. in a statement, johnson & johnson said they were deeply disappointed in the verdict and the company remains confident that its products do not contain asbestos and do not cause ovarian cancer and intends to pursue all available appellate remedies. in some previous cases, the company has successfully appealed. cbs news legal analyst rikki klieman. >> johnson & johnson is very confident this will get reduced by the judge or reversed on appeal. >> reporter: toni roberts says she may not live to see what happens next. her cancer is now terminal. >> this is not how i wanted to live out my life.
