7:04 am
>> we were just talking about that. we wish that this was sand instead of snow out here for sure. but there is some good news here in minneapolis. for the first time since friday night, it will get above zero in terms of the windchill here. and while those temperatures are dangerous, we saw over the weekend that they can also make travel deadly. the arctic weather paralyzed travel across the country. icy conditions becaused a spirit airlines plane to slide off the taxiway at niagara international airport near buffalo on sunday. and a united jet skidded off the runway at chicago's o'hare international airport. since saturday, more than 11,000 flights were delayed. another 4,000 were canceled. >> spent two hours and spent four hours, now it's canceled. >> the weather conditions made for dangerous and deadly travel. at least ten people were killed in weather related crashes over the weekend. a stranded driver shot this video of a deadly fiery tanker

7:06 am
that means frostbite can happen in ten minutes. but there is some good news here in minneapolis, later today, the high will get above zero, to 23 degrees. pretty balmy. >> oh, my gosh. layers. layers. jamie, thank you. meteorologist megan from our chicago station is tracking the cold. megan, good morning. >> good morning. this blast of arctic air has been breaking records across the country through the week vd and into early this week where the temperature in chicago this morning is colder than barrow, alaska. we are looking at slightly milder temperatures out to the west. denver at 42, 32 salt lake city. the cold is locked in place in the midwest and in the east today where it will be 14 in chicago and this afternoon 29 in new york. about 48 degrees in atlanta. so cold blast of air there. and, if that windchill advisories are up for the areas shaded in the light blue. windchills from minus 20 to minus 35. but looking a little bit closer to christmas we're going to see the colder air, colder than
7:07 am
average air settling in in the west while it remains a little bit warmer in the east. over the course of the next six to ten days. of course, still two days away from the start of winter. norah? >> megan, thanks. the first of 538 electoral college members are gathering to vote at this hour. it's a formality required by the constitution. but there will be protests this year, and some electors are urging others not to vote for donald trump. the president-elect's 306 to hillary clinton's 232 on election day. he only needs 270 of those electoral votes to be officially elected. mr. trump finished his victory tour over the weekend in alabama where he said nothing about russian hacking during the campaign. the cia, fbi, and the director of national intelligence now agree that russia tried to disrupt the u.s. elections. major garrett is covering the trump transition for us and has the latest. major, good morning. >> good morning. president-elect donald trump's expected to win those 270
7:08 am
electoral votes, and more, by about 3:00 eastern time this afternoon. and with minimal drama or defection. now for donald trump, and his team, this whole russian hacking story from their point of view is a trap. they join a discussion and participate in a conversation, they believe that undercuts the trump victory. instead the trump strategies, call on the intelligence community to play show and tell. and that's something it almost never does. >> the campaign is over. this man is the president. >> on sunday the trump transition team dodged the question of russian responsibility and said democrats are to blame for taking political shots after the war was over. >> i think what the democrats ought to do is look in the mirror and face the reality that they lost the election. >> reporter: team trump points to conflicting intelligence assessments and asks for hard evidence. knowing the spy craft safeguards against disclosing sources and methods. >> if there's evidence, let's see it. >> they should stand in front of
7:09 am
a camera and make a case. i don't think they've been clear about it. >> incoming chief of staff reince priebus refused to say if president-elect trump accepted cia director john brennan's conclusion shared in a memo to the intelligence community that the fbi is now on board with the cia finding of russian culpability. >> there's no evidence that shows that the outcome of the election was changed because of a couple dozen john podesta e-mails that were out there. >> former cia director under bill clinton james woolsey, now a trump adviser, said the cia and fbi are not enough. the national security agency or nsa must weigh in. >> if nsa is confident that it's the russians then it almost certainly is. depends on them. >> reporter: adam schiff is the ranking democrat on the house intelligence committee. >> for the president-elect to continue to give the russians deniability is deeply damaging to the country. >> reporter: new york republican peter king also on the committee accused brennan of playing politics. >> there should be an investigation with what the russians did.
7:10 am
but also an investigation with john brennan in the hit job he seems to be orchestrating against the president-elect. >> mr. trump is vacationing for christmas at his mar-a-lago resort in florida. he will hold a fraction of the transition meetings he was holding in previous weeks in new york. mr. trump is still looking to fill three cabinet level vacancies, secretary of veterans affairs, agriculture, and u.s. trade representative. >> thank you, major. top democrats insist the russian hacking is a threat to democracy. and a group of senators from both parties want a special committee to investigate the evidence that could lead to a fight with the president-elect, and senate republican leaders. margaret brennan is at the white house where president obama discussed the hacking, and his response in his last news conference of the year on friday. margaret, good morning. >> good morning. the obama administration is under fire from both parties for not countering the russian cyber threat earlier. the director of national intelligence will release some explanation of the scope and size of the attacks within the next three weeks.
7:11 am
the intelligence khupt's unanimous conclusion prompted four powerful senators, two from each party, to demand a special investigation. republican senator john mccain. >> we need a select committee. we need to get to the bottom of this. we need to find out exactly what was done. there's no doubt they were interfering. >> reporter: the hacking began in 2015. and the stolen democratic party e-mails began appearing on wikileaks ahead of hillary clinton's nominating convention this summer. on friday, president obama said he learned of the intrusions at that time. but worried going public would undermine american states in the election. >> my principle goal leading up to the election was making sure that tt election itself went off without a hitch, that it was not tanished. and that it did not feed any sense in the public that somehow
7:12 am
tampering was taking place with the actual process of voting. >> reporter: mr. obama said the hacking stopped after he confropted vladimir putin in september. a claim disputed by dnc chair donna brazile. >> no, it did not stop. >> reporter: hillary clinton's campaign chair john podesta, who was personally targeted by hackers, says something is, quote, broken at the fbi. and believes the bureau did not adequately respond to the dnc hack. >> the first time i was contacted by the fbi was two days after wikileaks started dropping my e-mails. the first -- >> two days after? >> two days after. >> reporter: former defense secretary robert gates says the hacking is meant to weaken the u.s. >> i would characterize it as a thinly disguised, covert operation intended to discredit the american election. >> u.s. officials increasingly see cyber attacks as putin's new favorite weapon. and point to an uptick in similar russian operations in europe, aimed at weakening his
7:13 am
adversaries. now it is important to note, president obama made clear that the votes cast for donald trump were not tampered with. >> margaret, thank you. margaret brennan. first lady michelle obama says her team will help melania trump succeed in the white house. mrs. obama spoke with oprah winfrey in a newly released clip you'll see first on "cbs this morning" she revealed how she'll help with the transition. >> did you have any advice for mrs. trump? >> you know i didn't -- we didn't -- we talked about the kids. but you know, my offer to melania was, you know, you really don't know what you don't know until you're here. >> mm-hmm. >> so the door is open. as i've told her. and as laura bush told me, you know, and as other first ladies told me. so i'm not new in this going high thing. i mean i model -- i'm modeling what was done for me. >> yeah. >> by -- by the bushes. >> right. >> and laura bush was nothing
7:14 am
but gracious and helpful, and her team was right there for my team. all throughout this entire eight-year process. >> and your team is doing the same? >> we will do whatever they need to -- to help them succeed. so that's one of the things i said to melania. when you get to a place when you can die just all this and you have questions, because, you know, you don't have questions, you know, the day after the election. it's just sort of like, you're looking around the house, it's like, well what do you want to know? i don't know what i should know. and i knew that. so my door is open. and that was really the nature of the -- the meeting. >> in our next hour the first lady reflects on being labeled an angry black woman and living life out loud. you can see the full interview tonight in a cbs special "first lady michelle obama says farewell to the white house." it airs at 8:00, 7:00 central here on cbs. there will be an encore presentation wednesday on own, the oprah winfrey network. >> i'm watching that. >> me, too. can't wait. >> did you get the inside scoop?

conditions of rebel-held aleppo where they've been trapped and meeting up with family members and friends. but the threat of violence is always there. yesterday one group of rebel fighters set fire to buses set to evacuate civilians from two closed government villages. the u.n. estimated on thursday that there were some 40,000 civilians, and up to 5,000 rebel fighters hold up in the last remaining pocket of rebel territory in the city of aleppo. the syrian regime now effectively has aleppo under its control. it's a key victory for the regime and its allies russian and iran. but it's been paid for with the lives of syrian people. who've been indiscriminately bombed by their own government. gayle? >> thank you, holly. she's reporting from the turkish/syrian border. we've been following the story of bana alabed who's been documents her war time experience inside aleppo. her tweets and her pictures have

i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors.
7:23 am
xarelto® is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto.

♪ good morning to our viewers in the west. it is monday, december 19th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including president obama's vow to retaliate for russia's election hacking. ian bremmer says the president waited too long to take meaningful action. first, here is today's eye opener at 8:00. for the first time since friday night, it will get above zero in terms of the windchill here. >> this blast of arctic air has been breaking records across the can country, through the weekend. and into early this week. >> donald trump and his team, this whole russian hacking story is a trap. a strategy called on the intelligence community to play

8:03 am
election. cia director john brennan sent a memo on friday, saying the director of national intelligence and the fbi director now agree with the cia that russian hacking was in part intended to help mr. trump win the election. on face the nation, john dickerson asked kellyanne conway why he refuses to accept the intelligence community's assessment. >> where is the evidence? why when cia officials were invited to a house intelligence briefing last week did they refuse to go? instead they're talking to the media. that undermines our national security, our intelligence operations. >> but does he have evidence that suggests that this isn't the case? >> well, the president-elect receives intelligence briefings that i am not privy to. but let's focus on the issue at hand, which is if the cia, director brennan and others at the top are serious about turning over evidence to the american people, they should do
8:04 am
that. >> at a news conference on friday, president obama said investigators will provide evidence that does not compromise sources and methods. >> when you're talking about cybersecurity, a lot of it is classified and we're not going to provide it because the way we catch folks is by knowing certain things about them that they may not want us to know and if we're going to monitor the stuff effectively going forward, we don't want them to know that we know. >> president also made clear there was no tampering with the actual voting process. >> with us now is ian brem emer. good morning, ian. what can the u.s. do back to russia? >> well, very little at this point. we have only a few weeks before obama is gone and seems pretty clear from everything that trump said about russia that his inclination is not only to disbelieve the intelligence, but to cozy up with this country as
8:05 am
closely as possible. the time of obama's choosing is running out. >> what are the implications of that, the trump russia relationship? >> well, i mean, one is that it undermines the u.s. intelligence community and that is something that trump is going to need for all sorts of other things as president i think that weakens the ability of america to project strength internationally as we see playing out in china, for example. but the other question is do you have alliances that are actually organized around common values, common structures, common architecture. russia is a very different place than that. right now our relationship with them is probably as bad as it has been since adropov. that will change pretty dramatically when trump becomes president. >> does the hacking scandal complicate the hope to reset relations with russia for this new trump administration? >> well, it -- certainly obama's hope is that it will. the fact they have ordered this comprehensive intelligence review which they will make known at least to the democrats and republicans in congress,
8:06 am
certainly a lot of that is going to get leaked, the hope is that constrains trump from being able to cozy up with the russians who will be seen to have compromised american national security. keep in mind, this went on under obama. the response from the united states was not very strong. and part of the reason it is hard for the democrats to hit trump on this is because consistently russia has been the biggest failed policy under obama in terms of syria, in terms of ukraine and now in terms of the hacks as well. >> what do you think russia doing now? president obama said in his news conference that the hacking had stopped after he confronted putin. donna brazile said yesterday on the program, that's not necessarily true. what do you think about the discan connect between that and what do you think russia is thinking as they're watching this now. it has caused a lot of controversy near this country. >> thinking that they have delegitimized the election. put questions in people's mind if this was an effective democratic process or not.
8:07 am
the united states tried to show the russians as hypocrites. they say they have their own democratic process and we know that's not really true. they pretend to have rule of law, doesn't really work. they're giving it back to us right now, but the americans consistently look weak to russia on so many of these issues. and certainly when trump -- when obama tells people, oh, cut it out, it is not like he's the little brother, stop it, stop touching me, right? you have to actually react and this isn't over now. the germans and the french have elections coming up an we know that the russians intend to influence the outcome of those elections. by the way, in this case, influence them in ways that mr. trump would support in favor of the far right parties, in the way that obama would like. >> we will see. >> we need to get to china quickly if we can. what are the chinese trying to accomplish with the seizing of the drone? >> they say they're going give
8:08 am
it back. >> trump said he doesn't want it back. >> trump reacted with a tweet. the chee the chinese could have been doing this five months ago, six months ago, they did not. the fact that they're doing it now shows that they clearly don't like the statements made by president-elect trump on a host of issues with china. the un -- unlike a lot of other countries, if the americans desired they're going to escalate versus china, the chinese have the capability to give it back. trump really believes that america has a much stronger negotiating position internationally and the chinese are going to show him that the reality is very unlike that. >> you believe the seizing of the drone was a provocative act aimed at trump. >> no question that the chinese, they have done a lot more military exercises, live fire in the region, they overflew with the nuclear capable bomber and now they allowed their sailors in the region to be more aggressive in responding to a drone being available. they wouldn't have done that six months ago.
