forecast. much more from you coming up. as we have said, though, this storm is hitting a profoundly inconvenient moment. after the snow, comes the deep freeze. let's get to eva pilgrim in minneapolis in front of a water fall. >> good morning, dan. this gives you an idea how cold sit here. it's still snowing. the icy conditions shutting down roads. here in minneapolis, they're asking people, begging people to stay off the roads. as we're now bracing for round two. this morning, millions of americans from colorado to maine getting slammed with snow, dangerous icy roads, and temperatures way below freezing. >> this is as cold as i have felt in a lot of years. >> reporter: as the storm harnlgs east, many major airports taking a hit. almost 1,000 flights canceled.
slowing down the start of what is expected to be a record holiday travel season. along with freezing rain and icy conditions, roads across the midwest plagued by an invisible danger. black ice. even on roads that look completely clear. watch as this truck hits a patch and spins out of control. overnight in minneapolis, heavy snow falling. with more than eight inches expected in some areas, homeowners getting ahead of the big dig. shoveling their way out, even in the pitch black. right here in minneapolis, it's just under 10 degrees. very balmy, especially when you consider tomorrow morning it will be colder. we're looking at wind chills that are 40 degrees below zero, paula. >> um, our apologies from the studio, eva. thank you for braving the cold. >> she doesn't mind. >> yes, she does mind. dan will send some hand warmers. in politics, president obama is all
vladimir putin was behind the hacking. mary bruce is in washington for us this morning. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, well, two days before the election results become official, questions are mounting this morning as to whether the results were influenced by russian hackers. president obama is stepping in, pointing a finger at russian president vladimir putin. >> come on. >> reporter: in his final, year-end press conference, president obama pushed back in response to russia's hacking. >> everybody had the information that was out there. and we handled it the way we should have. >> reporter: obama said he told putin to knock it off at this summit in september. >> talked to him direct period. warned him there would be serious
>> reporter: critics are asking why the president didn't do that sooner. owe bah said that would have turned the the issue into a political football. >> i wanted to make sure everybody knew we were playing this thing straight. >> reporter: russia tried to sway the election in trump's favor. trump continues to deny u.s. intelligence. >> they have no idea if it's russia or china or somebody. it could be somebody sitting in a bed some place. >> reporter: weighing in for the first time, hillary clinton says she believes putin was trying to settle old scores. that he holds a grudge after she challenged the fairness of russia's own election. >> vladimir putin himself directed the covert cyberattacks against our electoral system. against our democracy, apparently because he has a personal beef against me. >> reporter: this morning, the fbi and u.s. intelligence agencies agree. putin was personally
the c ix a director saying they're in synch on the scope, nature, and intent of russia's interference. president obama shopped short of blaming putin directly but made clear. >> not much happens in russia without vladimir putin. >> reporter: now, one thing president obama won't say is that hillary clinton lost because of the hacking. dan? >> all right, mary, thank you. how did our intelligence agencies tie russia and president vladimir putin to the hackings? brian ross has gained fascinating insight here. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, dan. with the russians demanding to see the proof. and donald trump saying there is no proof, u.s. intelligence says there is clear evidence that the russians did this to interfere with the election.
the computers of the democratic national committee. >> they get in by what's called a spear fish attack. >> reporter: cybersecurity analyst justin harvey said the russians first planted a dropper or a beacon to send material back to moscow. >> it's a tiny bit of software that calls back home and says, i'm here. i was successful. >> reporter: and it had a telltale russian signature. it was win in moscow's time zone and seemed to have gaps on what were russian holidays. all entered by a distinctive keyboard. >> we saw the sir rilic alphabet used in the compiler. >> reporter: the beacon transmitted to an internet artds overseas. >> it was an ip address that was previously seen in other russian attacks. >> reporter: the fbi has joined the assessment that the russian pres
in the attack. based on new highly classified information that comes from directly inside the kremlin. >> brian is here to talk more. is there any real ambiguity about whether vladimir putin was involved? does anything happen there without him knowing it? >> reporter: that's how the president put it. >> let's talk about the issue of retaliation. what are the options for the united states in. >> the president has acknowledged he has yet to take any retaliation against the russians. though officials have provided him with a number of possible actions, including making public information the cia has that would embarrass putin or going after the secret bank accounts putin has around the world. there's a possibility of sanctions on russian banks and commerce. the u.s. officials are advising against a cyberwar. officials fear that would
much more devastating to the u.s. than russia. given our reliance on soouber commerce or cybercommunication. >> difficult days. tricky issue. thank you, brian. really appreciate it. cokie roberts joins us now from washington. good morning. how can trump continue to deny? we know that republicans also calling for an investigation into russia's involvement. not trump. how long can the president-elect continue to deny the intelligence about russia? >> who knows. trump obviously has his own drum. the truth is that he has been very dismissive of the intelligence community. and he keeps saying these are the same guys who said that there were weapons of mass destruction in iraq. and they were wrong. but, you know, he -- president obama said yesterday again that when trump actually sits in the oval office, that the weight of that job will take over.
but you know, really, paula, this is a remarkable political development. think about it. for decades, we have spent billions and billions and billions of dollars developing weapons. aiming them at the soviet union and russia. this has been considered the american enemy for a very long time. and then, that enemy disrupts our election and the basic reaction is ho hum. particularly in the republican party. which had always been the greatest hawks against russia. >> history is interesting, isn't it? so let me just ask you, though, what does this mean for the confirmation of trump's choice for secretary of state, rex tillerson. the ceo of exxon. we have seen him in the champagne toasts with vladimir putin. how are these new revelations likely to affect his appearance
>> i think it will be fireworks and lots of speech made, but i think in the end he gets confirmed. unless something else happened. it would be extraordinary to deny a new president his secretary of state. >> cokie roberts. thank you. >> good to be with you. over the ron for a look at the other day's headlines. good morning, ron claiborne. >> good morning, everyone. we begin with the united states demanding that china return an underwater drone it seized in the south china sea. a navy research ship was conducting routine operations when a chinese navy ship nearby sent out a small boat to take the drone. the crew ignore ed requests to return the drone. breaking overnight, a new agreement between the syrian government and anti-government rebels that could allow evacuation of the embattled city of aleppo to resume. some
