8:01 am
night. >> details about money designated for manafort by yanukoyvich are likely to amplify donald trump's claims he's facing media bias. >> the focus now largely shifted to track and field and one man who seems to be able to travel faster than a bolt of lightning. >> the cases have been heavily scrutinized since netflix released series "making a murderer," now a judge is highly critical of how he was interrogated. >> popped up over near the martin leans in and makes the catch. >> he rolls over on the balance beam, what in the simone biles is going on right here? >> that's a gold medal right there. >> yes, it is. >> this morning's eye opener at 8:00 is presented by nutella. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and margaret brennan. norah is off. more rain will drench southern louisiana this week after days of torrential downpours. historic flooding there has
8:02 am
people. more than 10,000 are homeless and staying in shelters. >> around 2,000 homes have already been damaged. the president approved major disaster declarations in several louisiana parishes. that number is expected to climb. more than 20,000 people have been rescued from these rising waters. at least four rivers stretching across southern louisiana and mississippi have reached record highs. around 4,000 people in northern california have abandoned their homes as a fast-moving wildfire closes in. the clayton fire has destroyed at least ten buildings and burned around 3,000 acres. the combination of hot weather and dry brush caused the fire to grow quickly. and it's only 5% contained. milwaukee saw more unrest overnight after the deadly police shooting of a black man who officers say was carrying a gun. one person was shot last night. a police officer was injured when protesters threw rocks. the city is under a state of emergency.
8:03 am
sylville smith. he was shot twice by a black police officer. city officials say smith was holding a semiautomatic handgun with 23 bullets when he was hit. the officer's body camera captured that shooting. that video has not yet been released. donald trump plans a speech on major terrorism later today in ohio. new report raises questions about his campaign chairman's ties to foreign money. "new york times" says that secret ledgers in ukraine show money manafort from the political party of viktor yanukoyvich, ukraine's former president. article says handwritten ledgers show $12.7 million in undisclosed cash payments designated for mr. manafort from mr. yanukoyvich's pro-russia political party from 2007 to 2012. anticorruption investigators in ukraine believe that the payments, quote, were part of an illegal off-the-books system whose recipients also included
8:04 am
determined if manafort actually received any money. manafort says this morning, quote, i have never received a single off-the-books cash payment as falsely reported by "new york times," nor have i ever done work for the governments of ukraine or russia. the suggestion that i accepted cash payments is unfounded, silly and nonsensical. >> donald trump has said rep repeatedly he has no investments in russia. we asked paul manafort last month if trump would release tax returns to prove said not until an audit is complete. >> nothing to do with russia, has nothing to do with any country other than the united states and in his normal tax auditing processes. that issue will be dealt with when the audits are done. >> so to be clear, mr. trump has no financial relationships with any russian. >> that's what i said. that's obviously what the proposition is. >> this morning's "new york times" story about manafort
8:05 am
attacking the media over the weekend focusing in on the "times". >> the newspaper's going to hell. they've got a couple of reporters in that newspaper who are so bad, i mean, lack of talent, but it's going to hell. so i think maybe what we'll do, maybe we'll start thinking about taking their press credentials away from them. >> an editorial in this morning's "the wall street journal" says, quote, mr. trump is right that most o want him to lose, but then that was also true of george w. bush, george h.w. bush and ronald reagan. it's true of every republican presidential nominee. the difference is that mr. trump has made it so easy for the media and his opponents. he needs to stop blaming everyone else and decide if he wants to behave like someone who wants to be president or turn the nomination over to mike pence. >> wow. mark liebovich is a cbs news political contributor.
8:06 am
correspondent for the new york times magazine. he joins us at the table. good morning. >> hi, charlie. >> what do you make of all this? >> well, look, there's a classic republican playbook aspect of this, which is republicans attacking the media thinking that they are all against them. the thing about trump is it's not background noise, it's actually he's leading with this. he seemed to spend all day yesterday tweeting about how awful the media is. i mean, very precisely going after our paper, you know, whatever paper, you know, ticks him off. >> your paper also had a story on sundabo his people around him including his family are trying to get him to stay on message. >> they're good when they use the word mark sullen to describe the candidate. >> sullen is a bad word. this is a story we've been hearing for several weeks, almost months now, the sort of non-existent trump pivot has not come to pass. and look it does fit a narrative of not loserdom, but a campaign that's spiraling.
8:07 am
predicated on i'm winning and need to win more, it's not a good look. >> you have the impression people around him knows this and he agrees and then he goes off -- >> yeah, it's unclear. he doesn't have a lot of people around him. that's the thing. he has his family. he has sort of a core of enablers and seems like the people he listens to carefully are those who say let's let trump be trump. and corey lewandowski, his former campaign manager, got a lot of mileage off of doing that. and trump believes that if he is just as unplugged as he can be all the audience for it. i think the problem is it's getting a little bit tired. i mean, not just for party officials and people around him, but for people who are viewing this. because he's not really discharging a lot of new sort of information about himself that can help people learn that this is someone who they can conceive as their president. >> but he has a big opportunity today, or he said he has a big speech coming up in ohio. the chance for him to pivot they say. >> yeah, the speech is on foreign policy. i mean, he's going to reiterate
8:08 am
talking about the paul manafort story, any republicans that might defect this week. there has been a vicious cycle of distraction that you can almost count on it day to day. one of the things you hear over and over again from republicans, he needs to focus on hillary clinton, he needs to talk about what he's going to do. this noise just overtakes everything. and it becomes, you know, it's own entity. >> well, from some of the reporting we've seen on what mr. trump plans to talk about with lot of what we've already heard. but specifically focusing in on immigration and terrorism, mixing those two topics. but in some ways, i mean, has any of the reporting to this point spoken to his policies and backed them up? >> well, i mean, what he hasn't provided is a lot of specifics. i mean, we know that he wants to build a wall. he wants to -- i mean, i guess
8:09 am
is that it's going to be a crackdown on immigration from countries that there is terrorism that we think might be going on. >> that already exists. >> it already exists. and also how is it all going to work? again, it's -- >> right. >> the details aren't really there. >> what do you make of the manafort story? >> well, it's another part of the kind of web of intrigue around russia, around, you know, trump's perhaps you know close ties to the kremlin. you know, it looks kind of shady. any time you have $12.7 million -- >> do we think trump has close just said? >> close ties might be strong. i would say this, i think there is a lot of certainly fondness, a lot of interest, his praise for vladimir putin, his top campaign aide having these, you know, relationships. i mean, it's all part of the clinton campaign can certainly make a lot of hay of. >> and it's a split from the traditional republican position. >> absolutely. >> most of his fellow party mates on russia. >> the reports are that the
8:10 am
manafort, but he said very clearly he did not receive. >> that sounds a little parsey, who knows what that means. >> yeah, optics are tough on that one. >> it is. look, it's complicated. it's also a distraction. they don't need more distractions. >> thank you, mark liebovich. >> thank you. >> did you have a good vacation? >> i had a great vacation. >> welcome back. >> i think i'm trying to get off vacation a little slowly. >> welcome back. glad you came back to us. usain bolt needed less than ten seconds to make history, less than ten, at the rio jamaican sprinter became the first olympian to win the 100-meter dash three times. simone biles won her third gold in rio with her performance on that vault. she is the first u.s. gymnast to win three gold medals at a single olympics. u.s. women's fencing earned a bronze medal in the saber on saturday. the team included ibtih ibtihaj muhammad. >> i feel like my hijab is
8:11 am
and i believe it allows people to see me for my voice and not necessarily how i look. i hope that it will change a lot of the misconceptions that people have about muslim women specifically. >> it was great to hear those chants of usa after she was winning. >> it was. it was. >> anthony ervin is the oldest american swimmer in to win history. >> you're not going to retire. >> no. >> you're 35. >> yeah. how old are you? [ laughter ] >> i love that. yeah, i'm 35. how old are you? >> she was very quiet at that, as i would be. ahead, why the swimming star may not be ona hot, hot weekend for flooding and fires were devasting other parts of the county.

8:35 am
i think sitting in that audience might be a slight intense sort of experience but if it calms down at any point, i will. >> let's just say this movie, it was so frightening to me and you were so good add it. >> thank you very much. >> i think how you nailed the accents and mindset you had to get and looking at your background, seems nothing would prepare for you that. how did you nail it so as well? >> i was really luc mike german who helped write the script along with our director. mike is a former fbi agent who was on the cover of -- about 10 years and so i was able to pick his brains why he went into that job which is something that is always scary and something i wouldn't do and what life is like. it's actually like where in films, we are sort of used to seeing guys with guns and stuff.
8:36 am
you're the worst agent in the world. you have your intellect and your ability to sort of talk your way out of a situation is really all you have. >> and he is a good actor. >> charlie is right. it is called acting. a great scene in the movie where your group confronts an interracial couple and i was wondering how they would get out of that. what did you learn from mike german about that situation? >> what is your first priority as an undercover agent? is it to maintain what are you there to do? ed, no, actually, your main priority is not only should you not be involved in a crime about that, you have the responsibility to prevent that crime from taking place. despite the fact that that would, you know, sort of possibly -- >> what you're trying to do. >> exactly. so it's an incredibly just complex world and the amount of stuff -- like, when mike was doing this, it was early about the early '90s and technology
8:37 am
leg and had to flip the tape over every 90 minutes. it's an amazing world. >> white extremists aren't also classified as terrorists in the common perception here. why did you think this was an important thing to connect for people? >> i think that is really important. i know that terrorism -- my dad is northern irish and grew up there during the troubles so i always have that awareness it comes in all shapes and sizes. i think it's the stigmatized a certain group of people about terrorists was awful for me. so the chance to make the film. this was around the time, i believe as well, when i was reading the script, dylann roof happened. >> the shooter in charleston. >> right. i think the high ups of official and to refer to that as terrorism when, obviously, to me which, obviously, it is. so that seemed to be one of the
8:38 am
make. >> but you would call this terrorism? >> absolutely. any time you're hurting somebody with any sort of political ideology. i think you could use broader terms in terms of just like any act of violence toward somebody else is still terroring somebody but that is probably not what most people mean by it. >> was it a difficult role for you? scenes you had to do. >> it's horrible to say those words. i found i would, like, run up to the people i was throwing these slurs at between takes and say, i'm so sorry, i'm so sorry. those words have power for a reason. yeah, they feel very bad to say. >> do you have a means of balancing film and theater? >> i think i just like to get my hands on as much as i possibly
8:39 am
i just closed a show in new york last night. >> last night? >> yes. >> whoa. >> which was great. and so i've been -- i think film is where i grew up and i'll always love being there and i think theater -- every time i'm in theater, i feel i come away and being a better actor for it and feel i learn something every time. >> where does "harry potter" sit with you? are you sick of people talking about "harry potter"? do you embrace him? >> i think people expect me to be sick of it but when people come out and say what a part of their childhood i am, and all that, to me, i was saying i love "simp "simpso "simpsons" growing up. >> you had voice work there? >> i have. that is when i made it. the fact i might occupy that space in somebody else's childhood is really special and, yeah, no by having a great time on the film so it's not like i'm asked to think about
8:40 am
international identity wherever you go, people think of "harry potter"? >> yes, i think that is probably fair to say. >> you're part of the world. >> it didn't reach, no. which is really impressive when you think about it. right. no, there is -- actually, probably new york is one of the calmer place for me. everyone ignores you. >> what voice on the simpsons" did you do? >> playing the from twilight. >> let me hear it. >> no, it was my original voice. the second time i had not practiced my american accent in ages and i did it and it was probably really bad. >> you nailed that accent. >> thank you. >> welcome back. don't be a stranger. the movie opens this friday in theaterses. ahead, we will show you how one place filled has all of the answers. no computer needed here.
