7:03 am
>> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. toyota. let's go places. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." president-elect donald trump said exxonmobil chairman and ceo will be his secretary of state. mr. trump announced this morning that he will nominate rex tillerson as the country's next top diplomat. the decision ended a very public search process. tillerson could face a confirmation fight because of his ties to russian president vladimir putin. >> the president-elect said that tillerson is one of the truly great business leaders the world. he's decided that former governor rick perry will be his secretary of energy. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. tillerson has spent his entire career, more than four decades at exxonmobil, so he has vast experience doing business with foreign governments including
7:04 am
russia. and that has been met with some criticism, some both inside and outside his party. at age 64, rex tillerson has headed the world's largest publicly traded oil company for nearly a decade. last year, what else ranked 25 on forbes list of the most powerful people. under tillerson's leadership, exxonmobil struck a deal with russia in 2011 to begin drilling for oil in the arctic. but the project was halted three years later by western sanctions, after russia invaded crimea. >> i'm going to comply with the sanctions. there is not any conversation otherwise about that. >> reporter: tillerson earlier that his relationships with foreign governments including russia are strictly business. >> i'm not here to represent the united states government's interest. i'm not here to defend it. nor am i hear to criticize it. that's not what i do. i'm a businessman. >> reporter: but if confirmed as secretary of state, tillerson will be america's top diplomat representing u.s. foreign policy
7:05 am
interests and will need to navigate his 15-year history with vladimir putin. >> i have a very close relationship with him. i don't agree with everything he's doing. >> reporter: putin awarded tillerson a russian order of friendship in 2015. that same year, tillerson spoke to charlie rose about how he handled international relations. >> you have to look at the state of that country eyeball to eyeball, say i'm going to meet this commitment. >> reporter: for secretary of energy, mr. trump has settled on former texas governor rick perry who once proposed eliminate the energy department though it famously slipped his mind during the debate. >> third agency of government, i would do away with education -- commerce and, let's see -- i can't -- the third one, i can't. sorry. oops. >> with those two positions
7:06 am
still, mr. trump is now pretty close to completing his cabinets. the president-elect hasn't held an official press conference since he was a candidate back in july. and late yesterday, he postponed his highly anticipated press conference set for this thursday. where we was slated to explain how he's going to handle potential business conflicts. gayle, his aides say the lawyers need a little more time to work out the details and that he'll hold that press conference early in january. >> thank you very much, nancy. margaret brennan is at the white house with a closer look for the nominee for secretary of state and how his back ground could shape diplomacy. margaret, good morning. >> rex tillerson will be the first secretary of state of state to take the job with no government experience. he is now america's chief diplomat and face to the world. one positive i am hearing particularly from arab diplomats and from saudi arabia, they're very comfortable, they've got good relationships with him.
7:07 am
they are hope, the arab diplomat said he will push back and not tear up the deal. european saying to keep in with the climate change accord. keep in mind exxonmobil has recognized that climate change is a real security threat. one of the biggest questions i've been hearing from american diplomats is just how does trump want to position the u.s. in the long term. will rex tillerson be a transactional secretary of state of state, or a positional one. meaning will he simply be cutting deals? or putting america in position for something long term? we have not heard that articulated. right now, tillerson, we know, will have to be smoothing out a lot of rough edges with russia.
7:08 am
particularly on the talks with beijing. china's nuclear threat and the striking a deal with vladimir putin, with concern among american. >> diplomats. if we're going to strike a deal with war actions against syria and ukraine. some hope that tillerson has some deep relationships that could be helpful from day one when he's making calls to those leaders. norah. >> thank you, margaret. cbs news has learned that the u.s. is likely to pose sanctions on the leaders of russia's largest intelligence agency. telling cbs news news that high confidence that to try and help donald trump. jeff pegues spoke to an expert who has seen evidence of riggs involvement.
7:09 am
jeff, good morning. >> good morning, some of evidence tying the hacking to russian operatives stretches back at least six months. private officials contactsing u.s. intelligence officials say what they've seen is informational warfare and a staple of russian tactics to influence the election. late monday night, president obama explained on "the daily show" with trevor noah why he asked for a review before leaving office. >> the reason that i'm -- have called for a review is really just gather all of the tlelds of the investigates, the intel against work that has been done. >> reporter: the u.s. is confident that the cyber attacks were conducted by russia's gru intelligence arm. investigators believe the hackers with information that never became public. stolen e-mails, opposition research from the campaign information from the democratic
7:10 am
national committee was leaked to wikileaks and other sites. even after being exposed the hackers didn't stop. >> this is pretty bold, this is is pretty brazen adam myers works for cyberstrike that works closely with u.s. intelligence. >> there actually, definitely, were more detrimental to one candidate than the other? >> more detrimental to clinton? >> yes. >> reporter: myers said the russians have used the informational warfare to influence elections before by leaking embarrassing or sensitive documents. most notably during the 2014 elections in ukraine. the strategy is part of what some believe is a russian playbook to sow confusion and uncertainty. on capitol hill there is a ground swell for a probe. >> we ought to have a house intelligence committees to look into this. >> reporter: the top democrat on
7:11 am
the house intelligence committee adam shift is calling for sanctions. >> russians are not our friends. >> i think we ought to approach all of these issues on the assumption that the russians do not wish us well. >> and so far, president-elect trump has not acknowledged russian involvement in the hack. the russian foreign ministry says this saul part of a turf war between u.s. security agencies. charlie. >> thanks, jeff. >> cbs' political director "face the nation" john dickerson is in washington. good morning. how did they come to the decision about rex tillerson and in the end does he have an idea of how the united states should look at the world? >> i think he has ideas. specifically with regard to russia, it's interesting the relationship -- there are some people that believe the relationship with russia and united states is in as bad a
7:12 am
place as it has been since the early 1960s. but the world is different than the 1960s. and the united states is in a conflict position with russia, in some places watching what it's doing with baltic nations, for example. but also needs russia to counterbalance a growing china. so the complexity of the russian relationship will be a fascinating case to figure out when donald trump begins and ends and where his secretary of state begins and ends. in terms of choice, it seems that donald trump wanted somebody like he said in the campaign, a ceo who made deals. a ceo who had a strong sense of himself and would be able to do america's bidding overseas. and i think donald trump really did want mitt romney for a while and just couldn't get over the obstacles. >> you have senators rubio, lindsey graham, john mccain, have all raised concerns about his ties to russia. >> i think you'll see a difficult process.
7:13 am
in part because they'll be trying to figure out what exactly donald trump believes about russia. or where the secretary of state, or the incoming secretary of state what he thinks about russia. what john mccain said sunday on "face the nation," the first question what do you think of vladimir putin? and john mccain thinks he's a murderer and a thug. foreign policy people think unless you get that first question right, all of the policy decisions you make after that could be wrong. >> can't you take somebody say murderer and thug and understand they're a leader of a country. and you have to deal with them. and therefore you have to bring quality that will enable you to assess him better? >> absolutely. and that's the argument democrats made with dealing with countries that republicans didn't want to talk to. they said, look, ronald reagan dealt with russians and his eyes were wide open. if you look at a murderer or
7:14 am
thug from a position of strengths or in a supine position that let them essentially do their bidding. all the other nations, that will react if they think that the united states is not really in the game in terms of checking russian power. >> john, donald trump had said he would hold a press conference on thursday about how he would disconnect himself from any potential conflicts of interest with his businesses. he's now postponed that conference saying that the lawyers are just not ready. what are the implications? >> the implications are, that the big question is still out there. and it seems if they're not ready, it puts more focus on the tax returns. in other words, what's the real interest of donald trump's interests and how those intersect with the presidency. there's no way to know unless you look at the actual underlying documents that would suggest that. there's no evidence at the moment that donald trump is hastening to release those returns. so whatever promises he made. and there's a new one about his
7:15 am
sons will run the company and they won't get in any new deals, that's a big step. but it really doesn't mean anything unless they really sort of show their work and have transparency. >> how likely, john, do you think it is that we'll ever see the tax returns? >> well, based on the promised made during the campaign you'd have to be skeptical. it's kind of laid out there for the american that people can be certain that these conflicts that have been so much talked about are really taken care of. >> john dickerson, always good to see you. thank you so much. parts of the country are baking up to bitter cold temperatures. it feels like minus 21 degrees in bismarck, north dakota. in minneapolis it feels like 18 below. jamie ucheless is outside of
7:16 am
minneapolis. >> reporter: good morning, norah, i'm walking across a very frozen lake. i just had a dog out here playing around. last year, we could have been swimming across the lake. not the case right now. the reason we were swimming because it didn't get below zero until january 9th last year. what a difference a year makes. because right now, this week, temperatures here in the region will be 15 to 20 degrees below average. of course, that arctic blast came with all kinds of snow in the region. that's then pushed east. but as you can imagine, the cold temperatures are very dangerous. you can actually have your skin freeze in less than ten minutes and doctors concerned that people not bundled up could face hypothermia as the terms head towards the east. this also will not be the last winter storm that we see. right now, we're being told by meteorologists that another winter storm is brewing in the northwest now. expect it to hit here in the
7:17 am
midwest later this week. temperatures are going to remain very cold here and then move to the east, to you guys, in new york, gayle. >> thank you very much, jamie. drivers are dealing with heavy knsnow in indiana. here's a scene near gary. tracking that storm, megan, good morning. >> good morning, windchills advisories are in place this morning for parts of minnesota and iowa all the way through to montana. windchills from 20 to 35 degrees below zero. that spells frostbite in as little as 30 minutes. and high temperatures today will struggle to even reach 8 degrees in minneapolis. 12 for fargo, 14, billings. chicago, much of the day in the teens. this cold continues to spread to the south and east encompassing much of the eastern half of the country by the end of the week. in addition to that, we're watching a storm system come on

shore in the west which could mean possible accumulating snow from the mountains in california, all the way across the country to nantucket. we're talking certainly about another week of winter-like weather before winter gets started. syria's army said it's ready to take out the holdouts in eastern aleppo. controlling 99% of the former rebel-held neighborhoods. pro government forces reportedly killed at least 82 civilians during the takeover. the red cross said thousands of civilians have nowhere safe to run. a human rights group now says more than 312,000 people have been killed in six years of civil war. retaking aleppo would be the biggest victory yet for syria's president bashar al assad. a bomb threat against an airliner forced a major security response at jfk's airport. lufthansa flight diverted to jfk

7:37 am
ever been able to meet that burden. so, she has a big burden, but he just might satisfy it. >> why? >> i think that this is a different kind of case. when someone say public figure. the reason that we have public figures who -- it has to be a higher burden of proof is because they have a public purpose. they can defend themselves. the reason why this one is particularly offensive is what you have -- >> does she have to prove that she wasn't an escort and she didn't have a nervous breakdown? >> well, it doesn't quite work that way. what she has to prove is that when they published the statements that the statements were false. so, in essence, going back to your question. but they were done without any kind of investigation, without any kind of sourcing. without any kind of proof. in fact, both the daily mail know and say that they were throwing out rumors out there.
7:38 am
that these were rumors that they were then going to continue to publish. >> they retracted those stories pretty quickly. does that make a difference? >> well, it will help them in some little bit of equity that they did the right thing. and they did retract them quickly. however, damage of reputation is done at the time of publication. so, this is a case that, as we look at it going forward, this is a big, what we call emotions case. you're going to have motions to dismiss. you're going to have motions to summary judgment. the court is going to get deeply involved in all of the legal length of these involving defamation. if this case gets past the motion phase, and it really well might in this case goes forward to a jury, with the lawyer that she has, that i think she has a decent chance of success which is rare. >> beyond the obvious reason nobody wants to have people say bad things about them that are not true, why is she doing this?
7:39 am
>> what you're looking for here, a case you're talking about chastity and a crime. that's serious defamation. >> they did release a statement, his lawyer says that, quote, his client is a champion of the first amendment and believes that the public disor the, even when it delves into potentially sensitive matters is critical in the political arena. >> right thing to say. that would be his face. >> lawyer charles harder is the one who represented hulk hogan. rikki klieman, always good to have you here. ahead, we'll go to beijing to see why china's government is upset about a possible change in american policy. and how some are challenging the u.s. to a fight. and here's an invitation from us to you to subscribe to our "cbs this morning" podcast. you'll get the news of the day, interviews and how about this --

8:06 am
you know, legislation that would be the result of compromise. that did not actually happen. they did not want to come to the table. >> you say his greatest misstep is borne out of his insight? >> the great insight is the fact that it was possible for the country to elect a black president. that indeed the barrier of white supremacy actually could be vaulted by a special individual. him specifically. but that actually, i think, also caused him to underestimate the force of it. >> and because of his own upbringing. >> yes. >> why didn't they come to the table? >> well, i think what -- you know, if you look at the history, after 40 or 50 year, increasi increasingly, the parties have been can be racialized. >> racialized? >> yes. the democratic party is
8:07 am
basically a black party. and the republican party is basically a white party. >> to say it was based on race is not entirely fair. you have a democratic president who is talking about a massive expansion of obamacare. no significant policy differences. but back to your article, what do you think has in your article, you write about black america? >> well, very few -- when you talk about race regulations, it's very rarely i look at you and you're black and i don't like you. it usually is complicated. it's hard to ignore, and i place together in the article. the obama watchers during a primary. the birth of it. >> and the state of the union address? >> right. the whole thing. you know, about the first food stamp president. you start hearing this over and over again.
8:08 am
this has some import. you're right, it's not the only thing. but the fact that it's an easy thing that is objectionable for a lot of people. >> i was there at the white house. however, there were personal differences that people had taken. you write so much in this article about how obama was able to become president, how he talked about race sometimes as president. sometimes, how he didn't talk about race. what does that all mean? >> that's the core of it? >> yeah. >> i think we have to struggle to find -- i say this in all of my criticisms of the president that i have, we really have to struggle to find an individual who would be able to deal with the great difficulty of having the majority of the white country while rooted in in experience about black race. one side said he should have spoke more about it. i am not convinced that would have done anything.
8:09 am
>> the african-american people. >> i don't know if that's a majority opinion, the concept that he did actually speak out, you know, i don't think it was particularly clarified. >> you also write that he had to straddle two worlds. more than just black and white. he what-h to straddle two worlds. talk about that. >> i think that you could almost overestimate the fact that the president was biracial. it wasn't that he was biracial. it was that he was born and raised in hawaii. the place where the force, the legacy of jim crow is really there. he was born to parents who made him feel good about being black. you deputy remember, obama is born in '61, his mom brings his black dude home. >> an african. >> african. and they're like, okay. that's an unique scenario for black people. biracial or not. >> what did you learn about him
