7:04 am
going to affect either the campaign or my presidency. >> reporter: clinton's first public comments about the critical report came in an interview with univision in los angeles. >> nothing has changed. it's the same story. just like previous secretaries of state, i used a personal e-mail. many people did. it was not at all unprecedented. >> reporter: the state department's inspector general examining the records of secretaries of state dating back to madeleine albright said it could only identify three cases where officials used non-departmental e-mail systems on an exclusive basis for day-to-day operations. clinton, colin powell, and a former ambassador to kenya. the department's guidelines were that personal accounts should only be used in exceptional circumstances, and the report said clinton's use of private e-mail is not an appropriate method of preserving a federal record. >> everything i did was
7:05 am
permitted. there was no law. there was no regulation. >> reporter: the law contradicted that assertion saying security officials did not and would not approve her exclusive reliance on a personal e-mail account because of the security risks in doing so. state department staffers who did raise concerns were instructed never to speak of the secretary's personal e-mail system again. >> she had a little bad news today. >> reporter: in anaheim, donald trump was quick to capitalize. >> not so good. the inspector general's report, not good. >> reporter: clinton has said she will cooperate with a separate fbi investigation, but she did not sit down for an interview for this probe conducted by the agency that she once led. and gayle, neither did many of her top aides. >> nancy cordes, thank you. reporting from a pretty location. thanks. president obama said a short time ago in japan that world leaders are worried about the rise of donald trump. >> they are paying very close

7:34 am
for the first time why he funded hulk hogan's lawsuit against gawker. the silicon valley billionaire tells "the new york times" that gawker published articles that "ruined people's lives for no reason." he was referring in part to this 2007 article that outed him as gay, plus articles targeting people he knew and did not know. thiel said, "it's less about revenge and more about specific deterrence. i saw gawker pioneer a unique and damaging way of getting attention by bullying people. i can defend myself. they usually attack people that simply can't." >> gawker's founder responded that thiel's opinion does not trump over our millions of readers who know us for routinely driving big news stories like hillary clinton's secret e-mail account and the hidden power of fbi determine the news you see -- of facebook to determine the news you see. editor of the newnew joins us, one of the venture firms, a minor investor in a

7:36 am
it's not about revenge? >> i agree when he says it's less about revenge. there's clearly an element of revenge. this is a deeply competitive man who was a champion chess player and when he would lose would sweep the players off the board. this guy does not like to lose and gets mad at people. he's also a genius who founded paypal, one of the early investors in facebook, one of the most successful venture capitalist in the valley. a libertarian and donald trump delegate. he's interesting. he has they'reows how to change income -- theories on how to change income inequality, et cetera, different from others. a unique character with unique views. >> this is part of an emerging field of litigation finance. third parties like hedge funds, powerful billionaires, can help fund a case. raises first amendment questions, right? >> the whole thing raises first amendment questions. there's a lawsuit that may take out a large media organization that has all kinds of things,
7:37 am
gawker, and it's secretly funded. that is disturbing. >> the counterargument, just because he's funding it does not change the actual legal basis for the case. a judge and jury will decide it. >> right. the assertion that peter thiel could have funded an army of hack force take out -- hackers to take out gawker. he didn't. >> what was the deal that thiel bought? attorneys, investigators? >> he gave hulk hogan phone hire attorneys and to -- i don't know exactly what -- >> what does it buy you? better attorneys, better what? >> right. buys you 25 people to work on the case or 30 people to work on the case. hulk hogan's an affluent guy but needed the money. >> $10 million? how much? >> it's about $10 million, i believe is the number that peter thiel says is in the ballpark. that's for all the cases. he didn't just fund the hulk hogan case. he funded other cases against gawker. >> right. >> he said in "the new york times" that he put together a team to find cases to fund. in fact, what he says is that this is one of the greater philanthropic things that i have done.

good morning, it is thursday, may 26th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there's more real news ahead including japan's prime minister scolding president obama in public. we'll hear a response from ambassador to japan caroline kennedy. first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> clinton says she's been incredibly open, but the report said she should have turned them over when she left the state department. >> donald trump imagines running competitively in california, but his greeteding in anaheim suggested otherwise. powerful storm that went through here shredded homes and barns and scattered debris for as far as the eye could see. the tsa says they are making progress. now really solve this problem, it's going to take time, money, and more people.

>> reporter: this murder case is casting a shadow over a trip meant to strengthen ties between the two countries. >> reporter: the states involved in a suit with conservative leaders. they previously defied the directive, calling it a threat to student safety. what would be the impacts of the fact that he's done this? >> the most disturbing thing is that it sets a template for what a rich person can do to a media organization if it disagrees. if one of your kids ran against you for president, would you crush them, too? >> i would try. >> you would? they found that she did not ask permission. if she, had the answer would have been no. even if you give hillary clinton a firm no, what she hears is, try again in eight years. [ laughter ] i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. hillary clinton insists there is nothing new in a critical state department report on her
8:02 am
e-mails. the department's independent watchdog concluded that using a private e-mail server while secretary of state violated security guidelines. clinton said she was just following the practice of her predecessors. >> just like previous secretaries of state, i used a personal e-mail. many people did. it was not at all unprecedented. >> the report does say that other officials including former secretary of state colin powell also made mistakes. it singles out hillary clinton saying, "by secretary clinton's tenure, the department's guidance was more detailed." it says security personnel did not and would not approve her exclusive reliance on a personal e-mail account because of the restrictions and security risk in doing so. when she said last year, "what i did was allowed by the state department." >> political director and face
8:03 am
the nation moderator john dickerson -- >> approaching the table. come on up. >> usually they drop me in from the ceiling. >> what did we learn -- we learned a lot of things from this report yesterday. i want to get to the politics in a minute. substantially, what did we learn from the report? >> that hillary clinton hadn't been given the approval that she said she was given, and there's a difference. whether she says her predecessors, it's one, colin powell. what's different is the order of degree. she created an entire server outside the normal system, and that is different than colin powell. he didn't do that. it's the difference between running a few red lights and running from here to chicago. that's the difference in magnitude of what was done. finally, the first answer from the clinton campaign here was that she had been within the spirit and letter of the law. creating her own outside server was not in the spirit or letter of the law. >> john, put it in perspective. how big a deal sell this really? i was at an event, democrats and republicans were quoting bernie sanders saying, i'm sick and
8:04 am
tired of hearing about your damn emails. >> that was a long time ago. he's since changed some of that. >> he has, but the the people party haven't. >> is this goingtime prove anybody's wages -- going to improve anybody's wages, help someone get into college and not be in debt for the rest of their life? no, but it's about judgment and character. we look at presidents that way. the challenge for secretary clinton is in the answers, are they going to raise new questions. in other words, when she says it was allowed and fine and i've been transparent and you have an inspector general, not just a political opponent, but an inspector energy saying the opposite thing -- inspector general saying the opposite thing, people get a fresh, realtime test of whether the candidate is shooting straight with them, and that's a challenge for any candidate. >> and you have this -- when you have something that's a controversy, and it feeds to misgivings about you, that you don't play fair or get away with things others don't get away with, it's damaging. >> that's right. it falls into a chararicature o
8:05 am
you or underlying critique. it's not something in the past. it's happening in front of people as they watch and as they make evaluations. >> to that point, the -- >> do you think it will affect her campaign? >> i think it already has. and she's got to get out from under these questions about her truthfulness and honesty, and this gives more fresh opportunities for her and her campaign to say things that are at odds with official responses. >> the "washington post" called this inexcusable, willful disregard for the rules. she did not speak with or be interviewed by the inspector general. her campaign said she saved that for the fbi. is there a deadline for the fbi investigation? >> the fbi said no. there's no deadline. and this is another thing -- you've got inspector general and fbi. you never want to run for presidency and have inspector general and fbi in any conversation ever. >> my question, too, why has it taken so long to do the
8:06 am
investigations? >> well, some people would say because she held on to this for a long time and never told anybody that it existed. others say, well, it's the bureaucracy and that kind of thing. and there's a lot to go through. >> finally, what's happening in the trump campaign between paul manafort and cory lou >> he caught the fire truck faster than anybody thought. they had to get up to speed and be a national campaign faster than they originally thought. >> are you having a bromance with stephen colbert? >> second tonight mine with you, charlie. >> you lost credibility saying you watch him in the morning. i was hurt by that. with therapy, i'll be fine. >> you're on -- see, i'm able to watch you in serial. >> okay, john. >> maybe we'll see you sunday. >> on "face the nation." >> we'll see. we reported earlier on the

cloud over president obama's tripoli japan. he faced a public scolding over the murder of a japanese woman allegedly by a american military contractor. margaret brennan spoke to the ambassador to japan, caroline kennedy, about the case. >> this is a terrible, terrible tragedy. and i think that it's important to understand how deep this -- how big an issue this is here in japan. i think the important thing is that we, the u.s. military, the embassy, the u.s. government as a whole, and you've keen seen it all the way to the top with the president have expressed our deepest apology, our regret and commitment to see that this individual is prosecuted in the japanese legal system. >> reporter: friday we see the historic trip to hiroshima. people going there. what do you think the reception will be to have an american president going to the site of the first nuclear bomb drop and
8:08 am
not apologizing? >> well, i think that it's hard to understand the depth and important and historic nature of what is going happen tomorrow. i think that the people of japan are deeply, deeply grateful to the president for making this effort and making this visit. they're not looking for an apology. >> as we know, the president won't apologize, but the ambassador want to move the u.s./japan relationship forward. nearly 80 million americans are obese. a top weight loss specialist is in our toyota green room. there she is. she'll show how a newly designed gastric balloon could soon help you

up, up, and away. the fda revealing a new gastric balloon that starts as a pill. in trials, patients who were 40 to 60 pounds overweight lost an average of nearly 7% of their body weight in six months. the treatment is little more complicated. dr. christine ranfelding is chief of bariatric surgery and treats patients with one of the two existing balloon devices and joins us with from some props. we know that there's no magical pill. we wish there was, but we know there isn't. this has the potential you said to make a big difference. how does it work? >> the concept is the same. what we have in the united states that's available is a balloon filled with water that takes up space inside of your stomach. >> it's surgely implanted. >> this is endoscopically implanted. no cutting, but you need endoscopy to place this and inflate the balloon inside of your stomach. it stays in for six months in order to take up space so that you don't have food taking up
8:15 am
space. you then take it out with another endoscopy. what's coming out in new studies and technology is that there are balloons that are smaller than this but are filled with air which you can swallow in the form of a capsule. you don't need endoscopy in order to insert the balloon. you take a capsule, the size of a quarter. it's connected to a thin catheter. you swallow it. in your stomach, you hook it up to a gas tank, it inflates, and you disconnect the catheter and have a balloon taking up space in your stomach. you can swallow up to three balloons over the course of several months. >> how do you get them out? >> you need endoscopy. >> my mind is going many places here. okay. >> it's no surgery. it's good for people who are frightened of surgery or don't have that much weight to lose. >> this is only approved in europe and mexico, right? do you think it will be approved soon in the u.s.? >> yes, i believe it will be approved next year, hopefully
8:16 am
the first quarter. >> why are we behind europe in approving things like this? >> the american government has higher standards. there's much more criticism of the public and wanting to make sure we have the safest items. >> how does this compare to bariatric surgery, the results? >> the balloon will give you between 20 and 40 pounds. it's meant for individuals who have 20 to 40 pounds to lose. not the 100 or 200-pound overweight person. bariatric surgery is really for people who have been severely obese for many, many years, who need to lose 100, 200 pounds. >> do you like the pill? do you like the idea? >> i really like the idea of a pill because it's -- you are always trying to improve your medical treatment, and you want to be less innovative. >> yeah. >> doctor, it's important saving people's lives and improving their quality of life, what you're doing, and these

of our airports. it was very brief. a small number of flights had minor delays. i just looked at photos from our major airports, and things are well underway. >> does social media make a big difference in spotting problems and being able to respond quickly? >> absolutely. jetblue was one of the leaders and first users of social media to get instant customer feedback. and we have well over a million followers twitter. it's a really important tool for us. >> what do you make of the frustrations that people are having? take -- take today out of the mix. that we're standing in long lines, taking long, we're missing flights. several other airlines have hired additional staff to help get through the line. what's jetblue doing? >> we're doing similar things. you know, last summer went very well. and yet, as we head toward this summer, i think we are all concerned that we face longer waits for the security lines. so we are certainly putting additional business partners and crew members, our crew members, to perform some of the
