country's security forces. dan. >> thank you. a very violent weekend. now to the formation of the trump administration and news on one of the most high profile jobs in washington. officials with the trump transition team telling abc news the president-elect is likely to name this gentleman rex tillerson, the head of exxon mobile as his secretary of state. this choice would not be without controversy and mary bruce has the story from the white house. mary, good morning to you. >> reporter: while the trump team says no offer has been made just yet but this morning the president-elect is praising his likely pick. tillerson is a successful oil executive making deals around the world and built relationships with foreign leaders but those relationships are causing concern. >> he's much more than a business executive. a world class player. >> rex tillerson could also be the first secretary of state in american history with zero government experience. the exxon mobile ceo is trump's
8:08 am
likely pick to be the nation's top diplomat and his business ties with russia are raising concerns. tillerson in this 2013 russian government video shaking hands with president putin as he receives the order of friendship award. but trump says those connections are a good thing. >> a great advantage he knows many of the players and he knows them well. he does massive deals in russia, massive deals for the company. not for himself, for the company. >> the dnc is blasting the pick as outrageous and a victory for vladimir putin. republicans are chiming in. >> i have obviously concerns of reports of his relationship with vladimir putin who is a thug and a murderer. >> tillerson's likely deputy secretary is also raising eyebrows. john bolton, a former state department official and u.n. ambassador would bring government experience to the leadership team but also a washington insider. known for being extremely hawkish he still defends the iraq war. the picks come as trump's team is fighting back against a
8:09 am
washington post report that russia interfered in the u.s. presidential election to help trump win. >> what proof does anyone have they affected the outcome? i've heard zero. >> russia's motives remain unclear but a top official says there is evidence both parties were targeted but only material hacked from the democrats was made public. the rnc says that's not true. >> we have not been hacked. our own systems show we have not been hacked. >> and now the trump transition team is questioning the creditability of the cia. this morning that distrust is sending shockwaves through the intelligence community. the concern is that once trump is here at the white house he may not trust the intelligence he's given to make critical decisions. dan and paula. >> shockwaves for sure. mary, thank you. abc news chief anchor george stephanopoulos is with us now and hosting "this week" later this morning. george, let's start with rex tillerson, so many concerns about his ties with russia. he needs senate approval.
8:10 am
do you expect those ties to give him a hard time? you heard what john mccain is saying. even republicans are concerned. >> he's going to face a lot of questions, no question about that. whether or not he'll be voted down depends on what they discover during those hearings. you're right. he's going to face question from john mccain, lindsey graham about his ties to vladimir putin. he got the order of friendship from vladimir putin back in 2012, one of the highest civilian honors. that russia can give out. he's also called for lifting sanctions and facing questions about that and facing questions from democrats like senator ed markey saying this is turning over the keys of diplomacy of big oil. there will be those questions. how he handles the questions will determine if he gets picked whether he gets confirmed. >> what appears to be a rift between the incoming president -- >> appears to be? >> i'm trying to put it carefully. between the incoming president and the intelligence community. as we know there's reports that the intelligence community believes russia tried to tilt the election toward trump. trump said these are the same
8:11 am
people who said saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. what does that say about trump's ability to work with the intelligence people upon whom he will rely? >> remember back in october 17 intelligence agencies concluded that russia was trying to interfere in the election. they didn't give them motive. they said maybe they're trying to -- donald trump hasn't accepted that conclusion either and now questioned the conclusion of the cia, that they were actually helping trump win. it was kind of a stunning review, a lot of intelligence officials fought for him to be questioning the intelligence in this way at this time. at the same time, that he's actually according to some reports not really relying on the presidential daily briefs that both presidents and presidents-elect get every day. he said he's only been briefed about once a week. we're going to talk to reince priebus about that and about what the relationship with the intelligence community is likely to be inside a trump administration. >> of course, these intelligence reports have only been corroborated by the times and
8:12 am
washington post, basing the reporting on them. do you think there's any chance the intelligence is being politicized here. >> i don't think we know the answer to that. this is the conclusions of the professionals. the intelligence professionals. it's kind of the reverse of the situation that donald trump was talking about in his statement during the iraq war the allegation was that the white house was coming in -- was cherry picking the intelligence they were getting from the professionals. this is the conclusion of the intelligence professionals. president obama wants a report on his desk before january 20th that is a comprehensive look at how and whether russia intervened in our elections. >> more to come. george, thank you. i want to remind everybody that george has a big show this morning asking donald trump's incoming chief of staff reince priebus if the rnc was hacked by the russians and weighing in on how the senate will work with the new trump administration coming up later this morning on "this week" right here on abc.

8:14 am
away. hayes telling the jury he followed the mercedes to get the license plate number and accidentally rear-ended it testifying that's when will punched me three or four times. something never mentioned by witnesses. hayes going on to say smith turned around with a gun in his hand and i heard a pop, a shot from smith. >> whether or not the jury believes hayes is going to be what determines the destiny of this case. >> hayes shooting smith eight times, seven of the bullets hitting him in the back. hayes also denying firing the two shots that hit smith's wife in the leg. >> baby! please god! >> the prosecutor pressing hayes saying all the gun casings come from one gun, your gun. hayes replying, i can't say who shot her. while a loaded gun was found in smith's car, investigators say there was no evidence it was fired. the case is expected to go to the jury later today. if convicted hayes faces life in prison.
