7:01 am
it's found some of the debris from egyptair flight ms-804 in the mediterranean sea. >> a major breakthrough in an international search. >> they're sweeping to find the black box. >> investigators still trying to figure out what brought down egyptair flight 804. >> terror far more likely than technical failure, despite no one taking responsibility. >> a plane got blown out of the sky. it anybody thinks it wasn't blown ut of the blown out of th you're 100% wrong. >> if you're the nominee for the party -- >> i will be the nominee for the party, though. that is already done. i'm morely safer. >> the passing of a giant in television, morely safer died at 84. >> morely was one of the premier journalists of the past half century. >> any regrets about there career you painted? >> gosh, no. big story in the northern

7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." norah o'donnell is off. josh elliott of our streaming network, cbsn, is with us. we begin with a breakthrough in the search for the missing egyptair jet. the egyptian military says it found wreckage from flight 804 and personal items from the 66 people on board. >> the flight from paris to cairo dropped off radar wednesday night over the mediterranean. this morning, searchers found debris in the sea about 180 miles north of alexandria, egypt. our coverage extends across three continents today. nypd deputy chief of intelligence, john miller, has just arrived to talk about the possibility of terrorism. let's start with holly williams in cairo. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the egyptian military says the wreckage includes part of the plane's fuselage. the hunt goes on for the bodies of those who were on board, as well as the plane's black box.
7:04 am
the wreckage from the downed egyptian plane could help investigators discover what went wrong as search teams from egypt, the u.s., and european countries continue to scour the mediterranean sea for debris. egyptair flight 804 was in its normal cruising altitude in greek airspace when sometime after 2:00 a.m. local time something catastrophic happened. greek radar showed the plane turning abruptly 90 degrees to the left. then swinging through a tight 360-degree circle to the right, all while dropping like a rock. one official said, and then disappearing off the radar. egypt's civil aviation minister told us he had strong suspicions about what happened. >> again, it is not a statement
7:05 am
on behalf of the egyptian government. it's been a disastrous air for egyptian aviation. in october, a suspected bomb took down a russian jet here, killing all 224 people on board. isis later claimed responsibility. in march, a hijacker forced an egyptair passenger plane to land in cypress. though his suicide belt later turned out to be a fake. in cairo yesterday, family members who'd been waiting for their loved ones to return instead discovered that they'll never come back. "i want to know where my son is," said this man. "what's the government doing?" mechanical failure, human error, and terrorism are all possible causes. at this point, we still don't know what happened. as you can imagine, that means even more anguish for the families. josh? >> holly williams in cairo. thank you. now where the flight took off from, mark phillips is at
7:06 am
charles de gaulle airport outside paris. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. officially here in france, according to france's foreign minister there is still "absolutely no indication of the cause of this crash." although, of course, terrorism is still the prime suspect, and that start right here in paris. for some time even before the attacks in paris, there had been concern about security at the airport because of radicalization. they've instituted a new regime that they call extreme security in which not just passengers but anybody who works here and particularly gets near an airplane is screened. many security passes have been revoked. this is a well-known problem in international aviation circles, according to the former head of the british aviation authority, mark bivien. >> it was known that there had been a large number of employees who had air clearance at paris,
7:07 am
who'd had air-side passes withdrawn. the reason was that they'd become radicalized. >> reporter: and the problem is not just in paris here. the plane which has gone down over the mediterranean before leaving paris had flown from cairo to tunisia and then flew to paris. and the concern is that a bomb if there was a bomb could have been placed on the plane at any of those places. that was the thought very much in mind of the passengers here last night who got on the next egyptair flight to cairo. it left here and landed without incident, but it's become clear that around the world and aviation security, it's all subject to the weakest link. charmy? >> mark phillips in paris. john miller is the new york city police department's deputy commissioner for intelligence and counterterrorism. also a former fbi assistant director and our former senior
7:08 am
correspondent. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. good morning, gayle. >> good to have you on this morning. what questions are they asking tonight or this morning, and what should get them to the answer? >> so this is about people, pieces, and traffic. people is what you start with because it's easier to find in a debris field in the ocean, which if you take that manifest and then start going person by person through that background, you're looking for people who show up in intelligence reports, who may have had some association with someone who had an association that was already on the radar in a terrorist group. things like that. going through the people is the very, very first thing you do because it's available on the manifest. the pieces part, number two, is you have to find the debris field. it's always more challenging over water than it is over land. it appeared from the reporting this morning there may be a puniti-- may be a move forward.
7:09 am
you're looking for stippling, residue. the quicker you can get that out of the water helps you find whether there was traces of explosives or something that would indicate something no nonmechanical. you're also looking for indications of something mechanic a mechanical. the last part, traffic. what was out in the intercepts, clues, human source reporting in the days leading up to this, and what's above the surface in that reporting, and what's beneath. >> it's been several hours, and no one has claimed responsibility yet. does that say anything to you? does that mean anything at all? >> it -- it says a little something, but i think if you look at some of the more recent past acts including the downing of the russian airliner over the sinai desert, not that long ago, which was a terrorist act in view of u.s. intelligence, that claim of responsibility was a while in coming. gayle, i think the thing about the claim of responsibility is that there's a higher expectation today that something comes with it beyond the claims that they show the bomber, that
7:10 am
they show the making of the bomb, that there's a martyrdom video. we talk about proof of life. this is a proof of death. >> what did you make of the fact that the egyptian aviation minister said in the first hours after this attack that it was most likely terror that took down the plane? >> i think that when you look at the odds of modern airplanes with experienced crews and good mechanical condition, don't just fall from the sky. i'm always cautious about that because i spent a year covering the crash of twa flight 800 over the atlantic ocean which many thought was an act of terrorism until we found out it wasn't. of course, we still have the mystery of the malaysia air flight that disappeared far out in the ocean where we never found a real debris field and have no idea of the cause. >> do you think there's a working assumption among people who know more than anybody else that there was an explosion on board? >> yes, and i think that's not hard. i think if you're in the
7:11 am
counterterrorism business, you start out from that assumption, and you work it backwards. and the reason for that is you need the answers about this plane, but you also need the answers because you're thinking about the next plane. if you want to know what they were thinking about all day yesterday, they were thinking about the explosion on the plane in somalia where they found the bomb was concealed inside a laptop, where security was compromised because the laptop was handed off to the bombers on the other side of security by a compromised employee. they're going to be looking at the people on the plane. they're going to be looking at the people who touched the plane from various airport services before its takeoff at a number of stops. they're thinking about the attempted hijack of the egyptair plane where somebody got on what they believed to be was a simulated bomb. they'll be looking at all of that. >> do you think that we will
7:12 am
re-evaluate security in this country now at the airports? >> i think every day they're looking at what the terrorists have on the drawing board. it's interesting, if you look at aqap or al qaeda's arm in yemen, they've almost been solely focused on how to conceal bombs on planes. it's something they're thinking about every day. it's certainly something we're thinking about every day. >> thank you. we'll continue to bring you updates throughout the morning including analysis from cia insider michael morrell. and coverage continues all day on our 24-hour streaming network, cbsn. turning to politics in this country. donald trump is still using bit's past to attack hillary clinton -- bill clinton's passed to attack hillary clinton. he insists the democratic front-runner enabled the former president's misbehavior with women. hillary clinton insists that donald trump is unqualified for the white house. and the latest cbs news/"new york times" poll shows this -- that president bill clinton,
7:13 am
former president bill clinton is a lot more popular than either presidential candidate. julianna goldman looks at donald trump's risky tactics. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. hillary clinton is refusing to respond to donald trump's personal hits and allegations, but her campaign and allies are readying for an unprecedented political fight. >> i look forward to debating hillary. will that be fun? >> reporter: donald trump wasted no time in taking a jab at hillary clinton thursday, using her democratic opponent's words against her -- >> bernie sanders ed that hillary really isn't -- essentially not fit to be president. >> reporter: it was in response to this interview just hours before. >> i've concluded that he's not qualified to be president of the united states. >> reporter: hillary clinton said she was ready and willing to take on trump, but on her terms, not his. >> you pick a fight with a bully, you'll be pulled down to their level. >> she was an unbelievably nasty, mean enabler.
7:14 am
>> reporter: it comes as he makes good on his promise to make former president bill clinton and his past scandals a liability. ♪ >> reporter: trump's most recent attack -- dredging up this nearly 40-year-old unproven accusation. >> about groping and fondling and touching against a woman's will. >> and right -- and rape. >> and rape. >> reporter: the republican party is campaigning on it. >> she politically attacked sexual harassment victims. >> reporter: spouses are typically considered off limits, but a former president is not a typical spouse. he's been a constant presence on the campaign trail, making him a natural target for trump, but one that carries great risk. among women, bill clinton's favorability ratings are hire than the presumptive republican nominee's and his own wife. the former president also has to be careful. >> he could become a liability when he goes off message. >> reporter: democratic strategists say the fear is to not fall into donald trump's attacks. >> he should not follow donald
7:15 am
trump's attacks into the daily rabbit hole. he should train his fire on why donald trump would be a bad president. >> reporter: lebolt also said that republicans have tried and failed to make president clinton's scandals a liability since the '90s. and josh, polling from this past winter showed the majority of democrats and half of republicans said that bill clinton's past indiscretions made no difference. >> thank you. newly revealed audio shows donald trump apparently hoping for a real estate collapse. the audio comes from a 2006 interview recorded for trump university before the foreclosure crisis began. >> a lot of talk which you've no doubt heard, too, about a so-called real estate bubble and gloomy predictions that the real estate market is heading for a spectacular crash in the manner of the dot-combust -- dot-com bust.
7:16 am
what's your take? >> i hope that happens because people like me would go in and buy. if you're in a good cash position, like i'm in today, people would go in and buy like crazy. >> donald trump goes on to predict there would probably not be a crash. this morning, we're remembering a legend in the cbs family, morely safer. the newsman and longtime "60 minutes" correspondent died yesterday in new york. he was 84. morely was first and foremost a brilliant writer, as his colleague steve croft, reminded us. his career at cbs news spanned more than 50 years. 46 of them were at "60 minutes" where he filed 919 reports. morely holds the record for the longest run in primetime network television. >> over here is a uh 1-d medevac helicopter -- >> he was a fearless reporter. >> i'm morely safer. i'm morely safer. i'm morely safer. those stories tonight on "60

7:18 am
>> somebody explained to president johnson that i was a canadian. he said, well, i knew there was something wrong with him. >> a funny thing could have happened -- >> reporter: in december, 1970, safer made his debut on "60 minutes." >> i'm morely safer. >> reporter: over 46 years he explained the world as he saw it to millions. the quirky -- >> why are touching -- >> reporter: the magnificent -- >> benefactor spending an arm and a leg. >> is your wife here? >> reporter: and boy, did he have a way with women. >> you want to ask me to sing or just whip it out for you? >> just whoop it out for me. >> i consider myself a hostage in a house of injustice. >> reporter: it was the story about the wrongful imprisonment of linel jeter that safer was most proud. >> to make that kind of difference, in effect to save a life is -- pretty hot stuff. >> reporter: an accomplished career, he reflected upon my show in 1993.
7:19 am
any regrets about this career you've had here? >> oh, gosh. no. nothing. >> reporter: you wouldn't have done anything different? >> i mean, how can -- talk about a lucky, blessed life as a journalist. >> wow. >> it's the greatest compliment i think you can pay a writer to have wished to have written their words. he was such an inspiration. >> i never met him. have you, josh? >> once. >> you knew him, charlie. what do you want to tell us about him? >> well, he was all the things that they have been saying. he was a great craftsman. he had a huge curiosity. he loved life. and the kinds of stories he did, especially in the last half of his career at "60 minutes" reflected his passion for living and for writing. >> yeah. he will be missed here. what a good life. an insider trading probe leads to one of golf's bigger stars. ahea

welcome back to "cbs this morning." we are of course following the breaking news on the discovery of debris from egyptair flight 804. the egyptian military now says the wreckage was found in the mediterranean sea less than 200 miles from egypt's coast. greece's defense minister says that passengers remains were among the debris. so were two seats from the plane, as well as suitcases. >> the black boxes have not been found, and investigators say they cannot speculate on the cause of the crash. as john miller just talked about here, there are strong suspicion business terrorism. the search for the flight data recorders is raising suspicion business why flight data is not broadcast in realtime. the technology already exists
7:31 am
and would provide investigators quick access to the data after the crash. kris van kleave is at chicago's national airport with why airlines are still slow to adopt it. good morning you to. >> reporter: good morning. one of the challenges of realtime flight monitoring is the volume of data. look at the departure board here at terminal three at chicago's o'hare. these are just the morning flights from one terminal. this airport has more than 900,000 takeoffs or landings a year. that's a huge amount of data from just one u.s. airport. after air france flight 447 crashed off the coast of brazil in 2009, it took almost two years and $40 million to retrieve its black boxes from the bottom of the atlantic. malaysia airlines flight 370's flight data recorders still haven't been recovered because no one knows where in the indian ocean to look. >> i can find my kids by pinging their iphone. we shouldn't have aircraft that disappear anywhere in the world
7:32 am
today. >> reporter: former national transportation safety board chairman debra herzman wants black boxes to stream whenever anything unusual happens. >> we want to make sure on scene they don't have to go the ocean floor to find recorders. they have the information in their hands right away. >> reporter: last year qatar's airways said its entire fleet will eventually stream flight data. another carrier is already doing so. according to ceo of the satellite communications company iridium, black box streaming technology can cost tens of thousands to maintain and install on each aircraft. >> it may be that airlines are trying to figure out what is the best, most cost-effective solution that will fit all of their issues. >> reporter: the current system relies on ground-based radar to monitor planes. that leaves more than 70% of the world uncovered. one alternative -- using satellites to track a plane's gps transponder which would relay its speed, altitude, and
7:33 am
location. iridium hopes to have such a system up and running by 2018. >> a global surveillance system can track that airplane down to the second and help you find it quickly. >> reporter: aircraft already transmit engine performance date in flight. herzman thinks many airlines won't take steps to stream additional information without a push from regulators. >> we have an ability to do wi-fi on the plane. it's about making sure that the safety data gets as much priority as the entertainment. >> reporter: other factors here, experts say the traditional technology radar virtually works, works well. and when you look at black boxes, they are almost always recovered from accident scenes. and of course, the cost of the technology, that would almost certainly be passed on to flyers. charlie? >> thanks. we'll continue to bring you updates on the egypt air crash. right now let's show some of the other headlines -- "the oklahoman" reports that state lawmakers passed a bill to make it a felony to perform an abortion.
7:34 am

[ chants ] >> democrats chanted "shame" after six republicans switched their vote to defeat an amendment to protect lgbt contractors. republican leaders are accusing -- are accused, rather, of abusing chamber rules by holding the chamber open until they could convince enough members to kill the amendment. some say holding the vote open for seven medicines not out of the ordinary. and "u.s. news and world report" alerts consumers about potentially toxic foods, crf frozen foods of washington state recalled more than 400 products sold in north america. they may contain listeria, which

"usa today" reports that workouts for america's swim treatment being moved out of puerto rico due to zika worries. the team's pre-olympic training camp will instead be conducted in atlanta. the decision follows the shift of two baseball games from san juan to miami. and politico reports on the return of some taxpayer money that the nfl collected for military appreciatin at games. the pentagon paid the league millions of dollars from recruiting funds for the military tributes. the nfl will now return more than $720,000. a senate report also cites other pro leagues, nascar, and college sports programs for similar tributes. the san francisco police department is under new leadership this morning after a shakeup there. chief greg suhr resigned
7:36 am
yesterday, just hours after the deadly police shooting of a plaque woman suspected of stealing a car. john blackstone is outside san francisco's police headquarters with the department's history with race relations. >> reporter: good morning, thursday's shooting was at least the third time in the last six months that police here have used deadly force against a young latino or african-american suspect. and while the details of the latest incident are still unknown, it was enough for the city's mayor to call for a change. >> power to the people! >> reporter: outside city hall, demonstrator welcomed the news that embattled police chief greg suhr had been asked to resign. >> the progress that we've made hasn't been fast enough. not for me, and not for greg. >> reporter: for mayor, ed lee, the breaking point was reached thursday morning. >> hold fire! >> reporter: san francisco police shot and killed a 27-year-old woman suspected of
7:37 am
stealing a car, then crashing it during an escape attempt. >> it's always a tragedy any time anybody's shot. >> reporter: hours later, suhr stepped down. >> these officer-involved shootings, justified or not, have forced our city to open its eyes to questions of when and how police use lethal force. >> reporter: thursday's shooting was the latest in a string of racially charged incidents that have sparked outrage in the bay area. >> oh, my god! drop it! >> reporter: some questioned if deadly force was needed when five officers shot 26-year-old mario woods. wood was holding a knife when more than 20 shots were fired. court document also revealed several officers exchanged text messages littered with racist language. that has led to the review of roughly 3,000 criminal cases for possible police bias. >> i apologize to the public. we are better than this. >> reporter: following thursday's shooting, the mayor could no longer fight off the
7:38 am
calls for new leadership. >> the community is grieving, and i join them in that grief. >> reporter: suhr, who had been police chief since 2011, will be replaced by deputy chief tony chaplain in the interim while a search for a new chief is conducted. the mayor has already asked the justice department to look into the sfpd's policies and procedures. >> john blackstone, thank you. federal regulators say that phil mickelson profited from a friend's insider trading. how the case could damage the golfer's brand. if you're heading out, you can always watch us live through the cbs all-access app on your digital device if you must. do not miss a preview of norah o'donnell's "60 minutes" interview with white house adviser valerie jarrett.

7:43 am
the sun shines. one of the biggest names in golf has agreed to pay nearly a million dollars because of alleged insider trading. phil mickelson will give up his games after a -- gains after a securities and exchange commission investigation. they say mickelson unfairly earned the money through his connections to a well-known sports gambler. anthony mason is here with the case that could damage phil mickelson's image. anthony, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. mickelson has not been criminally charged in the case, but he was named as a relief defendant in a civil lawsuit by the sec. that means while he's not accused of wrongdoing, he still allegedly benefited from the illegal action of others. now authorities want all of those ill-gotten gains back. decisions on the golf course have made phil mickelson one of the world's most successful athletes. >> that's what you would expect from phil. he'll take a chance, just a little risky, sometimes he gets the reward. sometimes he doesn't.
7:44 am
>> reporter: authorities say in 2012, the golfer acted on a tip from famed sports better william "billy" walters about dean food stock. mickelson owed walters money at the time. a week later when the stock skyrocketed, mickelson pocketed nearly $1 million. some of which he paid back to walt walters. >> simply put, mickelson made moon that wasn't his to make. >> reporter: the details emerged thursday as the sec slapped warlts and former dean foods chairman tom davis with federal criminal charges. according to court documents, between 2008 and 2012, walters made tens of millions off insider information from davis. the two allegedly communicated on a prepaid cell phone to avoid detection. and even referred to dean foods in a code, calling the company "the dallas cowboys." >> it was all good news for walters because he had the information before everyone
7:45 am
else. >> reporter: as a world-renowned gambler, walters' success has attracted scrutiny in the past, including allegations of money laundering. he spoke about that in a 2011 interview on "60 minutes." >> how many times have you been indicted? >> four. i was indicted three times by the attorney general's office in nevada for the same thing. i got indicted, went to court, it was thrown out. i got reindicted for the sail thing. went to court again, it was thrown out. went reindicted again, went to court. the third time, it was thrown out. that was the end of. it. >> reporter: walters' attorney says it's speculative theories and false finger pointing. lawyers nature mickelson maintain the lawyer was "an innocent bystander to alleged wrongdoing that he was unaware of." >> he has such a squeaky-clean image that this could damage him. we'll see how sponsors will react. i think sponsors will see what the public opinion is. >> we reached out to several of mickelson's sponsors including the accounting firm kpmg. a spokesman told "cbs this
7:46 am
morning," "while the company is disappointed by that, the sec -- that they accept mickelson's statement of personal responsibility." >> are you hearing anything about the court of public opinion yet? >> not yet. this is an interesting case. very tough to prove these kinds of cases now. the court ruled that basically the defendant and someone like mickelson would have to have complete knowledge of the scheme and intent. it's not clear that he knew where the tip came from. it was a single trade, and he made over $900,000 in it. >> thank you. good to see you. technology brings whitney houston and christina aguilera together. houston's family doesn't want you to see it. the performance

it is friday, may 20th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including the discovery of wreckage and passengers' belongings from the missing egyptair flight. we'll talk to insider michael morrell about the clues investigators are looking for to determine if it is terrorism. first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> the wreckage includes part of the plane's fuselage. the hunt goes on for the plane's black box. >> officially there is still absolutely no indication of the cause of this crash. although terrorism is still the prime suspect. >> what did you make of the fact that the egyptian aviation minister said in the first hour it was most likely terrorism
8:01 am
that took down the plane? >> modern airplanes with experienced crews in good mechanical condition don't just fall from the sky. >> one of the challenges of realtime flight monitoring is the amount of data. this airport has more than 900 takeoffs or landings a day -- hillary clinton is refusing to respond to donald trump, and her allies are readying for an unprecedented political fight. >> the kinds of stories he did reflected his passion for living and for writing. >> the last time i saw morely, he was about to spark a cigarette. he takes a puff, and i realize there's a blue light. it's a vaping pen. and i said, morely, that's kind of -- you threw me. didn't realize you had a vaping pen. you look like you're from the future. he said, i am the future, and got off the elevator. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and josh elliott of cbsn.
8:02 am
norah is off. we have dramatic new developments in the egyptair disaster investigation. greece's defense minister says human remains were found among wreckage from flight 804. the egyptian military discovered the debris early today, less than 200 miles from egypt's coast. >> the radar shows the plane was at a cruising altitude over the eastern mediterranean thursday local time when something catastrophic happened. greek radar shows it turned bankruptly 90 -- turned abruptly 90 degrees to the left, then moved in a circle before dropping like a rock. it disappeared from radar. we have the latest on the investigation. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the egyptian military says the wreckage includes part of the plane's fuselage. but the hunt goes on for the black box which could help answer what went wrong.
8:03 am
search teams from egypt, the u.s., and european countries are all scouring the mediterranean sea. egyptair flight 804 was at its normal cruising altitude when sometime after 2:00 a.m. local time on thursday radar showed it swerving abrupt three the left, and then in a 360-degree circle to the right, all while losing altitude and disappearing off the radar. egypt's civil aviation minister told us yesterday that he believes the crash was probably caused by an act of terror. there's still no proof of that. it's been a disastrous year for egyptian aviation. in october, a suspected bomb took down a russian jet here, killing all 224 people on board. isis later claimed responsibility. mechanical failure, human error, and terrorism are all possible causes of this crash. at this point, we simply do not know what happened.
8:04 am
josh? >> no one has yet to claim responsibility for downing flight 804. there are strong suspicion business terrorism. it is not clear where a possible bomb could have been planted on the jet. >> in the past 24 hours before the crash, it had flown to aretesian, cairo and back. our senior contributor is in washington for the discussion. michael, good morning you to. it is heartbreaking to hear the details of this plane. early on officials in egypt seemed to point to terrorism within the first few hours. what do you make of that so early in the game? >> i think it's too early, as holly said, to make a definitive judgment that it was terrorism. could be a lot of things. i think the egyptians have an interest in this being terrorism rather than mechanical failure. i think that's what took them to their early statement. but as holly said, we don't know yet. >> mike, suppose it is terrorism.
8:05 am
what steps would lead us to that determination? >> i think there's two tracks here. one is what's going on with intelligence agencies. and there would be two things, charlie. one is, is there anybody on that flight with a link two a terrorism organization -- a link to a terrorism organization, and two, is there anything going on in terrorist organizations nonpublic conversations where they're congratulating each other. that's one of the ways you see who is responsible. that's on the intelligence side. on the investigatory side, you look at the debris, the black box that could tell you what brought down the aircraft. >> and looking in terms of the investigation, looking back to charles de gaulle in paris, some 70 workers at the airport have been dismissed or had security clearance
