7:03 am
charlie rose is off so john dickerson of "face the nation" is here. good to have you here. >> thanks for having me. >> great to have you here. after spending weeks using what many call violent and inflammatory rhetoric on the campaign trail, this morning, donald trump finds his own family is now the target of threats. a threatening letter containing a suspicious white powder was sent to the manhattan home of eric trump, one of the candidate's sons. the fbi, secret service and nypd are all investigating. >> eric trump's wife opened the letter at their home in the trump parc east building south of central park, and that is where don dahler is right now. don, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the letter arrived here at eric trump's luxury apartment which is right next to central park. police swarmed this biblgd last night when laura trump opened up an envelope post marked from massachusetts and discovered it contained a white powder. initial field tests showed that that powder is not hazardous.
7:04 am
but the letter contained an explicit threat thelg cbs that it said if donald trump does not withdraw from his presidential candidacy that his family will be harmed. now 32-year-old eric trump is donald trump's second oldest son. he's been largely visible on the campaign trail, often appearing behind his father at events. this is not the first threat to trump this week. the activist hacker organization said they're declaring total warfare against trump for statements he's made. they claim they'll launch a cyberattack on his various online entities beginning april 1st, which of course is april fool's day. >> don, thanks. ted cruz's presidential campaign is getting new support this morning. lindsey graham and marco rubio
7:05 am
praised cruz on thursday saying they were afraid of what donald trump candidacy could do to their party. major garrett is in washington to look at this. good morning, major. >> reporter: good morning. ad hoc and so far aimless to stop donald trump efforts continue. another one in downtown washington and another in palm beach, florida with the biggest republican donors. so far all more talk than action. in this vacuum, ted cruz has emerged as the least likely establishment favorite to topple trump. >> clearly, i mean, ted's positions on issues are conservative. >> reporter: returning subdued and defeated to capitol hill after ending his white house bid, marco rubio did not endorse ted cruz but said he is the only alternative. >> hopefully, there is time to still, you know, prevent a trump nomination which i think would fracture the party. >> reporter: senator lindsey graham agreed intensifying his criticism of donald trump. >> i think his campaign is built on race phobia and bigotry and i think a disaster for our party. >> reporter: graham offered cruz
7:06 am
a halting endorsement. >> i'm going to be doing a fund-raiser for ted cruz. he's the best alternative to donald trump. certainly not my preference. >> if you kill ted cruz on the floor of the senate and the trial is in the senate, nobody can convict you. >> reporter: john kasich, the last man standing between a trump versus cruz primary attacked trump's comments that riots could break out at a contested republican convention. >> for somebody running for president of the united states, to say -- to even imply that there could be violence if he doesn't get his way, you know, he's not running for the presidency of the wwe. >> reporter: the primaries head west to utah and arizona where cruz is rolling out new ads he hopes will rally anti-trump voters. >> ted has kept those promises with that trust that he has earned. we need to unite behind ted cruz.
7:07 am
>> i'm ted cruz and i approve this message. >> reporter: the voice in that ad is mike lee, an ally of cruz and both lee and cruz have operated outside of the gop establishment in washington. now they are pulling it in to their anti-trump world. norah? >> major, thank you. president obama is not endorsing a candidate yet but this morning he appears to favor hillary clinton. "the new york times" reports the president told democratic donors at a private fund-raiser in texas, quote, that senator bernie sanders of vermont was nearing the point of which -- at which his campaign against hillary clinton would end and that the party must soon come together to back her. sanders responded to those comments last night. >> we have received more votes from people under 30 than secretary clinton and donald trump combined. many states were winning the votes of people under 45. that is the future of america. that is the future of the democratic party. so to suggest we don't fight this out to the end would be, i think, a very bad mistake. >> the white house said the president's comments were meant to stress that success in
7:08 am
november will depend on the ability of the democratic party to come together behind the nominee and he did not indicate or specify a preference in the race. the vermont senator is also offering a critique of the president's supreme court pick. sanders says he strongly supports a nomination of merrick garland but if he wins the election in november he said he would ask the president to withdraw the name. he wants a more progressive justice. this morning, republicans remain united in their refusal to consider garland. jan crawford is on capitol hill where the partisan fight is spilling into the senate's easter recess. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. sanders may have his concerns, but there is no evidence that garland would be anything other than a liberal justice. and as he started his visits here on capitol hill, other democrats gave him a warm welcome. garland's first meetings were friendly, starting with a top democrat on the judiciary committee who stepped up the pressure on republicans. >> i think they owe it to their constituents and to the country
7:09 am
and more importantly to the constitution. >> most of the republican doors are closed. only a handful signalled they will meet with garland. although judiciary committee chairman chuck grassley left open a crack. >> it's a case of an hour meeting with judge garla charlie roses say no, to that. if i can meet with a dictator in uganda, i can surely meet with a decent person in america. >> reporter: the white house is hoping with enough pressure republicans will cave. for now they're holding the line for the next president. >> the responsible course of action is to avoid the political theater. >> republicans think that the people deserve a voice. >> the american people deserve to be heard in their voice heated. >> reporter: in a conference call with supporters, president obama said that issue was settled. the american people did have a say back in 2012 when they elected me president. >> the biggest challenge for the white house is going to be keeping the attention of the american people.
7:10 am
>> reporter: former judiciary committee chief counsel says to prevail the white house will have to keep beating that drum. >> you have outside personalities as candidates. and there are going to be issues that will be coming up, and, you know, i don't think the american people are going to be paying as much attention to the nomination of judge garland. >> reporter: now, garland also doesn't bring diversity so some groups on the left aren't all that fired up. but he would be a solid liberal vote and with his temperament and intellect, perhaps someone who could build consensus on a court of nine. john? >> jan, thanks. the obama administration this morning is calling on north korea to calm tensions after a pair of new missile launches. the pentagon confirms pyongyang fired two ballistic missiles overnight. they crashed into the sea. the launches comes day after president obama imposed new sanctions on the north. ash carter said this morning the
7:11 am
s u.s. clamped down punishment for missile nuclear tests earlier this year. federal investigators are investigating a lightning strike on an american airlines flight that was flying from north carolina to laguardia airport when it was struck. >> there was a flash of light and big explosion. the plane dipped about a hundred feet. i don't know. it just felt like i was on a roller coaster. >> the plane diverted safely to new york's jfk airport. 59 people were on board and no one hurt. i'm sure they were quite scared. powerful storms roll through texas leaving a trail of damage. listen to that. hail the size of tennis balls pounded the areas around dallas yesterday. it smashed through windows and dozens of cars.
7:12 am
chief weathercaster lonnie quinn of wcbs is here in the studio. you know something big could be happening. >> you get up to the northern plains, anywhere north of that and you get the possibility of the inclement weather. the store vi the big swirl around the great lakes. see how that's dropping to the south? that's going to bring in cool air to places like the northeast. then we watch this area i've circled in yellow, wichita, kansas right now. that storm is going to get together pushing down to the south, grabbing added moisture, exits the seaboard, grabs more moisture along the east coast and if it travels up the east coast, the northeast has a big snowstorm on their hand. if it pushes out to sea, not so much. three out of the four big computer models are saying this is in fact going to hug the coastline. it looks like a snowstorm for the northeast. not even b everybody is on board but it looks like measurable snow out there. how much are we talking about?
7:13 am
one to three inch of snow, rain mixed in. i-95 corridor could be tough traveling, sunday into monday, three to six inches. where ever you see the dark blue, six to 12 inches. everybody else whatever snow you pick up, certainly not going to last too long. spring snowstorm are rare, they do happen but they don't stuck around too long. you'll g in the 50s and 60s by the time you get into next week. all of this is going to melt in a hot second. that's it for the weather picture. let's go over to you. >> thanks, lonnie. michigan governor rick snyder is back in flint this morning to meet with officials about the city's watercrisis. he testified yesterday before a house panel. some members of congress are calling for snyder and the head of the epa to resign over the lead contamination. adriana diaz is in washington with the contentious hearing. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it was the first time lawmakers
7:14 am
got to grill the two high-ranking officials involved what has become a full-fledged health emergency. republicans put most of the blame on president obama's epa chief while democrats zeroed in on the michigan governor. >> as soon as i knew there was a lead issue, we did blood testing and -- >> plausible deny about only works when it's plausible. >> reporter: nearly four hours on thursday. >> no! just listen for a second! >> reporter: lawmakers took turns blasting michigan governor rick snyder and epa chief mccarthy. >> it wasn't until january of the next year you actually did something. that is the fundamental problem! don't look around like you're mystified! >> reporter: the city tapped into the flint river for drinking water in april 2014 to save money. but the improperly treated water caused lead to leach from old pipes. although flint is no longer pumping river water, most of the city's 8,000 lead pipes have not been replaced. >> i should have asked tougher questions and i should have done more.
7:15 am
>> reporter: at the hearing, governor snyder apologized and blame failures on all levels of government. >> inefficient, ineffective and unaccountable bureaucrats at the epa allowed this disaster to continue unnecessarily. >> reporter: mccarthy insisted her agency followed the lead of michigan environmental officials. >> from day one the state provided our regional office with confusing, incomplete, and absolutely incorrect information. >> you need to take some responsibility because you screwed up. you messed up a hundred thousand people's lives. >> reporter: flint residents traveled by the busload to attend the hearing. >> i found a flyer in my mailbox saying that pregnant women and people 55 and over should not drink this water. >> reporter: ms. wakes said she miscarried in 2015 tho it was not clear it was linked to the contaminated water. >> no amount of testimony or even apologies can bring my
7:16 am
babies back or take the lead out of everyone's body. someone needs to be held accountable. >> reporter: in a statement to the detroit news, governor snyder said that he voluntarily testified to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again. he says he has no plans to resign. as for epa administrator mccarthy, the white house says it supports her. >> what a hearing. thank you. the american who defected from isis in iraq is opening up about how he became disillusioned with jihad. it involves a woman. he revealed that he traveled from his home in virginia to london and then amsterdam. from there he went to turkey where a contact helped him join isis. elizabeth palmer is in erbil, iraq. close to where the kurdish forces detained him. good morning. >> reporter: khweis left the united states in december of 2015, so in a few short weeks he's had what you might call a radical change of heart.
7:17 am
>> she set up the transportation from turkey to syria to syria to iraq. >> reporter: love may have been a factor, but khweis may have been seduced by the videos posted on social media showing the good islamic state but when he got there that is not what he found. >> our daily life was basically prayer, eating, and learning about the religion for about eight hours. >> reporter: as for why he did
7:18 am
it? well, khweis is a little vague on that point. >> at the time i made a decision to go, because i wasn't thinking straight. >> reporter: so khweis did what so many others have done. he found a people smuggler to get him out. but instead of arriving safely on the turkish border and freedom, he has found himself in custody and in deep trouble. the department of justice has already said it's planning to file charges against him in the united states and here erbil, he has been interviewed by the fbi. >> thank you. the first day of march madness featured a wild string of upsets. seven lower seeded teams won on thursday. 12th seeded yale beat fifth seeded baylor in a 79-75 stunner. the first for yale. overtime against purdue. little rock won in double overtime 85-83.

7:39 am
although he is as likely to do that as i am to do to pass up a buffet. for both of these candidates, it is necessary for them to say, i'm not perfect, i've made mistakes, this is what i got wrong and this is what i learned from it, but not a candidate is likely to do it. so you're going to see this kind of anger and frustration with both of them for months to come. >> john dickerson is here. >> yeah. thanks, frank. what is your sense, frank, of the percentages of each party where people feel this way? is it more in the republican party, more in the democrat, which is it? >> i have thought there was more with the republicans but i'm surprised. it took us less than 24 hours to recruit this group because so many people would choose none of the above if they had that option. in fact, i hope that cbs on their next poll does it, because you're going to find it's between 15% and 20% of the electorate who would prefer neither of them. people who don't trust hillary clinton and on the republican side, trump has done as well as
