7:10 am
being responsive enough for their request for documents. no word if that's grounds for impea impeachment. good morning, paula. >> reporter: this is just the latest in this ongoing feud between the president's republican allies and the justice department. now, tea party leaders mark meadows of north carolina and jim jordan of ohio along with nine others are steering this effort to try to oust rosenstein alleging he has conflicts of interest in the ongoing special counsel investigation and accuse him of intentionally withholding documents in other ongoing investigations into the justice department and how it handled investigations related to the 2016 election. now, if rosenstein was impeached, the russia investigation would continue but special counsel mueller would be supervised by a different senior justice department official. rosenstein has pushed back against these warning in may the justice department is, quote, not going to be extorted. but it's unclear how far they're actually going to be able to get with this effort or if it could
7:11 am
even come to a vote because several top republican lawmakers said they do not support the idea of trying to impeach rosenstein including house oversight chair trey gowdy. the justice department has not commented on these efforts. gayle. >> thank you very much. fears of an all out trade war between the u.s. and european union are easing. just last week you may recall the president called the eu a foe in a cbs news interview. yesterday mr. trump spoke a different tune. he spoke of a close friendship with the 28 nation pact and in a tweet last night he wrote the eu and u.s. love each other. this follows a meeting between mr. trump and european commission president jean-claude juncker at the white house. >> the two leaders agreed to discussions about eliminating tariffs and subsidies and pledged to talk about steel and aluminum tariffness place and hold off on proposed new tariffs on cars. mr. trump also said the eu had agreed to buy a lot of soybeans and other u.s. products.
7:12 am
. >> this will open markets for farmers and workers, increase investment and lead to greater prosperity in both the united states and the european union. it will also make trade fairer and more reciprocal, my favorite word. reciprocal. >> trade between the eu and u.s. totaled nearly $1.1 trillion in 2016 according to the office of the u.s. trade representative. the eu was the second largest importer of goods from the u.s. that year. today the president travels to the midwest. it's already feeling the impact of these trade disputes. secretary of state mike pompeo was involved in heated exchanges with senators over president trump's recent meeting with russian president vladimir putin. members of the foreign relates committee wanted to know if the leade leaders discussed sanctions on russia or crimea during their private two-hour meeting and pompeo struggled to answer. the committee chair republican bob corker blasted the
7:13 am
administration for what he called a lack of transparency. >> you come before a group of senators today who are filled with serious doubts about this white house and its conduct of american foreign policy. i can't say it more forcefully, we really need a clear understanding as to what is going on, what our president is agreeing to and what our strategy is on a number of issues. >> and in other news after the white house invited putin to visit in the fall and no word yet back from putin the white house pushed back that meeting with putin until next year. homeland security secretary kirstjen nielsen says the government will meet today's deadline to reunite all eligible children and parents who were separated at the border. at this moment more than 500 families are still waiting to be reunited. the bad news another 463 parents have been deported without their
7:14 am
children and word is they may never be reunited. initially more than 2500 children between the ages of 5 and 17 were separated from their families. mireya villarreal is in albuquerque, new mexico, where many eligible families are being sent for reunification. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, albuquerque has become one of the hubs for these happening at shelters like the one right here behind me. but there are still roughly 900 children that are considered ineligible so that means they will stay in the government's custody past today's deadline. ineligible means the person he came in with turned out not to be their parents or issues with verification documents or a possibility their parent has some sort of criminal history. albuquerque's departure terminal is where one separated families are fining a fresh start. romela victoria isaula and her son geronimo is heading home
7:15 am
together after being separated for two months. she recalls the moment her son was torn from her. "we arrived at immigration and they screamed at me because i was crying over my son" she said. "i didn't know where they would take him or whether he would treat him well. they are just 2 of almost 1200 immigrant families who have been brought back together under a federal court order. in baltimore, 7-year-old andy couldn't hole back his tears after seeing his mother for the first time in nearly a month. >> the government hasn't taken the proper steps to effectively deny these parents the right to their children. >> reporter: virginia based attorney sophia gregg represents these two. like most families who have been reunited the two will have to wait for their asylum case to be heard by a judge and they still face the risk of deportation. >> there's also a large number of families or parents that the government has determined are
7:16 am
ineligible to be reunited. >> reporter: the city is preparing to take in roughly 300 of these recently reunited families but they won't stay here for very long. the nonprofit organizations working behind the scenes wants to get the families to their final destination within 24 hours of arriving here in albuquerque. >> thanks. facebook stock is sharply lower after they suffered a financial blow in months of punishing headlines about privacy and content concerns. its stock plunged as much as 24% in after-hours trading yesterday and that wiped out as much as $150 billion of it's market value in just under two hours. now, this comes as facebook announced second quarter revenue missed wall street expectations by about $130 million and growth in the number of active users is slowing down. cbs news contributor nicholas thompson is wired's editor in chief. welcome. is this the cumulation of essentially missing those earnings and what has been months of terrible news.
7:17 am
>> yeah, it's all of this coming together into a very bad day for facebook. they've lost -- they've had much lower operating margins than they had before. user growth is not so good and it looks like the new products they're rolling out are not as profitable so the market freaked out. to put it in context the amount it declined in market cap is larger than the entire size of mcdonald's. a huge drop and could end up being the largest drop in history. >> i saw one headline that said facebook gives up privacy over profit. is that a good way to put it. >> part of what's happening is it turns out it's harder to make money when you put user privacy first. so after gdpr and after facebook started solving the problems it has, it turns out you can't make as much money in the long run and that is partly what the markets are reacting to. >> is that why those apps have not been blockbusters for them because they're just not able to make that kind of mope or just not very good apps, the new things they've been rolling out. >> what's happening with facebook, the new stuff, like the stories which is facebook's
7:18 am
big priority where you put in what you did during the day and it disappears is much harder to monetize than newsfeed and not making as much on instagram even though it's a mujicaly growing product as they did on newsfeed. >> they're spending more on security, another thing that hurts the bottom line. >> the good way to look at it, it is spending tons of money to fick all these problems and they'll keep spending this money which means they'll be less profitable. that is the positive way to look at it. negative way to look at it this, is just a terrible time right there. >> they have to be doing the hula that they've got facebook -- i mean that they have instagram. >> instagram and whatsapp and they have four of the biggest platforms so they'll be okay in the long run. one thing incredibly interesting about this is the stock is now lower than it was january 1st. employees, some of them are paid based on bonuses and how the stock does over the course of the year. if it continues to be down, that has a real effect on their ability to retain people which is the hardest thing for them. >> nick thompson, thanks so

7:33 am
injured during or after childbirth. 7 00 women die. maternal death has been steadily rising and the u.s. now has the highest rate in the developed world. in a story you'll see first on cbs this morning, "usa today" conducted a four-year investigation into the nation's maternity hospitals. the paper spoke to several families who lost loved ones and women who were permanently harmharm ed during their deliveries. >> ally lowry had internal bleeding. she nearly bled to death. >> one minute i could hear people talking. the next minute, i couldn't hear anything. one minute i could see people. the next minute it was just black. i was really scared because i knew that that -- that i shouldn't have been feeling that way. >> i said that's my life right there. take care of her. >> boy, she needed a hystere hysterectomy to stop the
7:34 am
bleeding. they then sued the hospital. the doctor and hospital denied wrongdoing, and knox community told us they could not comment on the case due to patient privacy laws. allison young is here with more on the paper's investigation. good morning to you. i read your article. i couldn't believe what i was reading. to be here in this country. let's start with ali's story because this is not an isolated incident but tell everyone what she does for a living. >> ali is a labor and delivery nurse. >> and it happened in her hospital. >> it did. >> you said people should really be outraged by what's happening in this country. a lot of women are dying that don't need to die, why? >> the experts say that about 50% of the deaths of women from childbirth related causes could be prevented if they were given better medical care. that's a really surprising thing given that we're one of the wealthiest countries in the world and spend so much on medical care. we're talking about 50,000 u.s.
7:35 am
women who are suffering life-altering harms. they are having to have hysterectomies. they can't have babies anymore. they end up in the icu when they should be bonding with their babies. a percentage of those don't need to happen or harms could be reduced. >> you think about the pain and how dangerous childbirth is. what you found is many of the dangers happen after the baby is born. what is happening in the lack of care that mothers are receiving? >> so there are two leading causes of childbirth deaths and injuries. one of them is hemorrhage, and the other is severe hypertension, blood pressure disorders. and both of those require hospital officials to pay attention to the early warning signs and get people treatments quickly. what we found is that often not happening. >> bleeding is very common in childbirth. >> absolutely. and one of the things that happens, there's normal bleeding but at a certain point is crosses the line into a dangerous hemorrhage.
7:36 am
and part of the issues experts say is that many hospitals, the doctors and the nurses, they eyeball the amount of blood. they take an educated guess. what they should be doing is they should be actually measuring the blood loss. and by doing that, by weighing blood-soaked items, using calibrated containers, they can catch it early and get life-saving treatments faster before things spiral out of control. >> is the problem that there aren't enough staff? is it that they're just missing this and it's a simple fix? what's the solution? >> experts say it's an issue of training. these things have been known for many years as things that need to be done. but it needs to be made a priority at hospitals. >> because what i understand is sometimes it becomes such a routine thing that everybody is moving on and that is just a part of the system. and that if you have a more deliberate process, which is just making it a little slower. but when you make it slower, you can't do as much. >> one thing being advocated by
7:37 am
groups like the aim program is having checklists that lit rol y -- literally you're following. if you're a pilot, you have a checklist you follow. the same thing being advocated in maternity care. >> the safety practices instituted in california have cut the state's maternal death rate in half. what can other states learn from what california is doing? >> california is a great example. they are one of the early adopters where an organization out there has pushed hospitals to follow these evidence-based best practices. there's a growing movement across the country by the aim program but hospitals, the whole process has been slowed to a dot. >> the other issue is blood pressure. aren't hospitals always monitoring your blood pressure when giving birth? >> they absolutely are. >> but? >> but the issue is that there needs to be greater recognition that a woman's body changes during pregnancy and after birth. they are much more susceptible to stroke when their blood pressure reaches certain danger levels. we featured the case of a woman

>> more than three dozen people have been rescued in central pennsylvania. in harrisberg, more than a billion gallons of rain has fallen since the storm began. president trump and the european union appear to be euro backing away from a trade war. mr. trump and european commission president jean-claude yunker yesterday agreed to work toward eliminating tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies between the two economic giants. the eu said it could buy more products from the u.s. including soy beans and liquified natural gas. they also agreed to resolve the dispute over steel and twoinum tariffs. president trump says the two sides are starting on new ground. nd. e met right here at the white house to launch a new phase in the relationship whit between the united states and the european union. the euro a phase of close friendship, of strong trade relations in which both of us will win.
8:04 am
>> the president later tweeted a picture embracing yunker, the u.s. and eu obviously love each other. that's quite the hug. look at that smack on the cheek. >> that is quite an embrace there. >> a sharp change in tone for mr. trump who spent weeks attacking the group. >> what's your biggest competitor, the biggest foe globally right now? >> i think we have a lot of foes. i think the european union is a foe what they do to us in trade. you wouldn't think of the european union. but they're a foe. >> the european union is bad as china just smaller. okay? it's terrible what they do to us. >> they kill us on trade. they kill us on other things. they make it impossible to do business in europe. things.ey come in and they sell their mercedes and bmws to us. >> president trump had threatened to impose new auto tariffs on the eu but they are >> on hold right now while the talking continue.
8:05 am
>> the group president and senior global affairs contributor joins us now. ian, what do we make of this deal? how big a deal is it? what is left on the table to be discussed between the eu and the u.s.? >> it is love for sale. wonderful to go from foe to lamore so quickly. >> foe no more. >> but this is a cease-fire. it's not at end of a trade war. we really should say there never . s a trade war. there were a couple f initial tirmishes back and forth. we have not taken our existing tariffs, the new ones, aluminum and steel off of the europeans. and we are continuing our investigation into the automotive tariffs and putting a automotion on implementing them. the pressure is still on. but the tone has obviously changed. the europeans have now offered poiveryone for -- that they're ifng to buy more than soybeans oweringere's more capacity.
8:06 am
let's see if it gets implemented. now we they'll work towards lowering tariffs. obviously automotive is a big part of that. now we have to see if it ofpens. it reminds me what happened after the singapore meeting between kim jong-un and trump it sounded great. ndede was a deal. there wasn't anything concrete in at the deal. we no longer talked about fighting each other. but in reality, u.s. policy and north korean policy hasn't actually changed that much. that's exactly what we're seeing heght now here. bemississippi what the president could have gotten if he had just started this notersation in the first place, not gotten in there with the punitive tariffs and the the other take is he has leverage now. because he's roughed them up a little bit, he has the eu coming to him wanting what he wants, where do you come down on that? >> he does have leverage. i think short term he ends up inkbably getting a little more from the europeans than you ould have gotten than if you were just being mr. nice guy. he did get capitulation like that on trade with the hezilians, with the argentinians and south koreans using the same basic tactics. but the actual relationship between trump and the european leaders is enormously damaged. and long term, that erodes the
8:07 am
term,th of these institutions and architecture which will have an impact. let's be clear. therything trump has done in policy over his first year and a half has been made to try to get done witcan economy to be hiced in the short term. he's more than happy to blow out the budget. he doesn't care about long term deficits. the than happy to say, you wnow, let's get regulatory off .ur backs so small and medium ng-termses will do better. appyonly thing that looked like it might have been a fly in that smal ointment was taking the hit on grade. trade,at, he didn't do. >> so that was a threat to the u.s. economy. the potential tariffs. let's talk about the threat to ecs. national security. mike pompeo took it on the chin canm senators including republican senators yesterday who blamed the administration we a massive lecleanup effort after the helsinki summit. what's going on now? what have we learned about what putin and trump agreed to? >> we haven't learned anything about the two plus hour private conversation that trump had with putin. no one else was in the room except a translator. i don't know if we'll ever get the full readout.
8:08 am
unless putin at some points wants to give it to us. but what we do know is that olicy didn't change. the americans didn't recognize crimea as a part of russia. they haven't suspended military exercises in the baltic states. wasy're not removing -- >> that was pompeo's part. >> but trump coming out of the meeting didn't do any of those things. anyact, i suspect that sanctions from congress against .ussia are likely to be increased somewhat over the course of the year which is one reason why that invitation to the white house putin has been suspended. 's why the housetin indicated that he wasn't going to come. he just had an answer. well, he indicated that he might to be coming so soon. > yeah. it is very weird that trump still wants to have this israordinarily friendly trumponship with putin compared to any other leader in the world, friend or foe. and, yet, if you look at actual ierican policy towards russia, even after this extremely unusual helsinki summit, the
8:09 am
reality is u.s. policy towards russia is deeply broken and it's probably on balance getting a little worse. not much to see here on policy. >> ian bremer, thank you so much. scientists are reporting a stunning discovery on mars, arer. ahead, why evidence of extraterrestrial life could be now be possible beneath the red planet surface. and that is just two minutes that not whether we'll reveal if

scientists say they discovered liquid water on mars. it took three years to confirm the new research published just yesterday in the journal of science. mars is more than 48 million miles farther from the sun is a whole lot colder than our planet. the water was found in a lake deep under the martian south pole. italian scientists made the discovery using ground penetrating radar on the european space agency's mars express spacecraft. >> now the lake they found is 12 miles wide and one mile beneath the frigid surface. the reason it isn't frozen is because it is salty and has a much lower freezing point. the core stays liquid down to
8:13 am
minus 94 degrees. the salts are likely made up of something called perclorates. still, there are hopes where there is water there could be life. >> so the investigation continues. you have any desire to go? but my imagination is there right now. >> right here. >> good point. >> fantastic. exciting news. there's a lot more news ahead. a woman who lost her husband to a deadly work accident now has to fight for his full workman's compensation benefits. ahead, why his payments were cut over marijuana. in our series more perfect union, meet the identical twin sisters running for office with different points of view who could serve side by side. and research shows how some lizards manage to hang on and not get blown away during a hurricane. >> no. >> that's a funny picture. >> and you're watching "cbs this morning." g." that's a funny pier. >> you're watching "cbs this morning." it was tough getting out there on stage. i wanted to be clear.

chicago, detroit and ann arbor, michigan. gm says it will be available in more cities this fall. lee gallagher is fortune magazine's senior editor at large, welcome to the table. >> thanks for having me. >> this is something. this is car sharing. >> very. >> how does gm want to carry this out? >> gm is doing a lot with car sharing and has ever since it launched maven a few years ago, if you're an uber driver you can get a car from maven and use it, it's called maven gig, they have all sorts of things going on. this is the first time a big automaker has gotten into this peer-to-peer car rental service. this is you described it as an airbnb for cars. it is regular people renting out their cars to other regular people, and so it's very disruptive in that bay. there are a few startups that do this, getaround and turo, but this is a big deal for gm coming into this slice of the market and legitimizing it. >> anybody with a gm consider can sign up? there must be some requirements. >> some rules, has to be a model that's 2015 or more, you have to
8:36 am
be vetted. if you do it, actually someone will come and inspect your car and outfit it with the deicals a -- decals and put the technology in it, and it lets the renter access your car. you don't have to see each other. >> say i have a gm car and costs $500 a month, my program to own is $500 a month, the days that i'm out of town or on vacation, i could lease it out and try and recoup some money? >> exactly. not only that, say you live in new york city and commute by public transportation. during the day, the theory is most people it's an asset that most people have that sits idle a lot so it's monetizing that, the same way with airbnb you're monetizing your home. >> is this basically just a new financing mechanism for gm, in other words, they want to get more people who will now buy a car because it's not going to cost so much because of what norah just outlined? >> maybe if it's sitting in the driveway you'll trade up or buy a second car. there is that. this is also a part of, this is
8:37 am
really the wild west of car ownership and car and getting around right now, between autonomous cars and ride hailing and car sharing, and so but this company is getting into it rather than sort of fighting it. >> wild west makes me think of a place where there aren't a lot of rules and people got hurt. what is the safety angle here? >> this peer-to-peer car rental is new. airbnb a lot of stuff happened on that platform because you're opening up private products for public consumption. >> so what happens if i rent your car, you rent my car, and then i have an accident in your car? >> gm will cover -- >> i just return your car, thanks a lot, sorry? what happens? >> gm will cover $1 million policy for that car, while it's being used during that reservation but the question is, will your own car insurance policy, because this is commercial use of a private car that was probably not intended that way. it's a brand new world. the whole sharing company, this is a brave, new world. >> how much?
8:38 am
how much does it cost? >> it depends, but the owners set the price and the one thing that data can do, you can have analytics that tells you what the going rate is in your market depending on the time window. >> the owner sets the price and the owner gets 60%, the car company gets 40%. >> so there's something in it for everybody. >> seems like it would hurt the car rental business. >> the one entity that will fight back although gm sells cars to rental companies. so it's everyone partnering with everyone. >> leigh gallagher, thank you, you're one of our favorite people. >> thank you. >> you look good, too. >> thanks. a florida police officer is being praised for a unique act of kindness. he helped a homeless man land a job. cell phone video captured officer tony carlsson assisting a man named phil with a shave in tallahassee. why did he do that? vlad, good morning. >> officer carlsson was in a gas station parking lot after

our series "a more perfect union" aims to show that what unites as americans is far greater than what divides us.

8:48 am
our goal was if we had a difference of opinion, we had to do research. we had to research our points and come together to figure out a solution. >> reporter: the twins may belong to opposing political parties but their message trance ends labels. >> the left wing and right wing belong to the same bird. i can like someone and not appreciate their policies. >> and that's what i do with her every day. >> to people see you together? >> all the time. >> if they both win, the sisters would serve side by side on the board of commissioners. >> we have a goal, a common goal to serve the people. we're not going to agree on 100% of everything, but if we can find 50%, 60%, 350e67b% to agree on, then let's work on those things we can agree on and try to figure out the rest later. >> it's not going to split the two of of you up. >> no, absolutely not.
