welcome to "cbs this morning." white house officials just revealed a short time ago that defense secretary chuck hagel is resigning. the former republican senator led the pentagon for less than two years. >> president obama's expected to make an announcement in about one hour. bill plante has been speaking to his white house sources. bill, good morning. >> good morning. the white house portrays this as not a firing but by mutual consent. they say the president and secretary hagel have been talking about this since october. the fact of the matter is hagel never really did fit in here. he came on board to help the drawndown of forces in afghanistan to basically end the war. and now the united states is busy fighting another war, like it or not, and hagel is not very comfortable with the way things are working. he doesn't have access as much as he would like to the white house team here. he feels as he has told others that he's fed up with the micromanagement that's going on.
7:04 am
and he is not comfortable and they're not comfortable with him. so you're going to have this announcement of a mutual departure. and no successor to date. we expect the successor, the white house says, in short order. it's likely to be one of the people who were mentioned when hagel was nominated like moishl flonio a former deputy of defense, ashton cart another deputy, or maybe senator jack reid who has combat experience democratic senator from rhode island. the fact of the matter is is this ends a chapter which was not very productive for either the white house or the pentagon. >> bill thanks. >> n an interview last week we asked hagel if he had the confidence of the president. >> then there are these stories, that the president wants to change his national security team. he's looking at his last two
7:05 am
years. maybe he wants to change his national security advise his secretary of defense. maybe he wants to change other elements. is that true? >> well, you'd have to ask the president. but -- >> do you concern yourself with it? >> no, first of all, i serve at the pleasure of the president. i am immensely grateful for the opportunities i've had in the last two years to work every day for the country and for the men and women who serve this country. i don't get up in the morning worried about my job. it's not unusual, by the way, to change teams at different times. >> so you would expect things to change? >> i didn't say that. i didn't say i expect things to change. what i'm saying is it wouldn't be unusual to do that first of all, historically. second, i've got to stay focused on my job. and i do. and i am very fortunate i have some of the best people in the world to work with.
7:06 am
and whatever the president decides, he's the president, he makes those decisions. >> do you -- are you convinced you have the confidence of the president? >> well i don't think i'd be here if i didn't. you'd have to ask him that. i mean, i see him all the time. >> he would tell you if he didn't? >> i would think so yes. >> you can watch the president announcement around 8:10 a.m. pacific on our digital network cbs-n at >> very interesting to see that interview. >> just five days ago, asking him whether his job was on the line. >> very directly. in other news it's a clear morning for most of you in the west. northeast, a sudden warm-up creating a new hazard. rising temperatures melting the gigantic snowfall in western new york. threatening to create a flood disaster. jereka duncan is in seneca new york. >> reporter: you can hear the sounds of the creek as it moves very quickly through west

seneca. this is expected to reach flood stage later this evening. that could cause dangerous flooding for some neighborhoods. after a series of crippling snow storms pounded the buffalo area last week, western new yorkers still recovering from nearly seven feet of snow are now facing the second phase, the flooding. with temperatures expected to hit 60 degrees today and rain in the forecast, communities along lake erie are turning their attention from snow removal to flood warnings. >> people say, well my home doesn't flood. i know. but there's always a first time. and we're seeing first times all the time now. pack a bag, have your important papers, and be ready to leave the house. >> reporter: the national guard is ready to deploy where necessary. they have pumps, generators, water rescue teams, sandbags, and boats.
7:08 am
>> we hope it doesn't flood our house or anybody else's for that matter. we don't want nobody to get flooded. >> reporter: despite the threat of rising waters buffalo mayor brown is encouraged by the response so far. >> it's amazing that in recent days over six feet of snow fell on this community and we're 100% of streets open. >> reporter: but western new york is not out of the threat just yet. >> we still have not recovered. we still see this as an emergency. so we are preparing for the worst and hoping for the best. >> reporter: not only are people concerned about the potential for flooding and watching creeks like this closely, winds are expected to gust up to 60 miles an hour. that could create conditions for downed trees and even power lines. >> jericka, thanks. spent part of the weekend stuck in the snow. it shut down interstate i-90 at

7:15 am
hill is the latest woman to claim she was drugged and raped by cosby. she said she appeared in picture pages when she was just a 15-year-old model. >> i always thought it was odd i would wake up in my bed the next day and i wouldn't remember anything. it just felt weird to me. i remember still being in high school saying to him, you know i'll come see you, but i don't want to drink it makes me feel funny. >> reporter: on friday cosby told, i know people are tired of me not saying anything but a guy doesn't have to answer to innuendos. people should fact-check. people shouldn't have to go through that and shouldn't answer to innuendos. his attorney also blamed the media. this situation is an unprecedented example of the media's breakneck rush to run stories without any corroboration or adherence to traditional journalistic standard standards. it is long past time for this media vilification of mr. cosby to stop. cosby received a standing

thousands of dollars in monthly payments to the women on cosby's behalf. >> i think he was scared. he called the police and said i'm hearing noise. more women have come forward with their own experiences of sexual assault on campus and a culture they say ignores the problem. >> how do you make that catch? he is insane! >> that's awesome. >> new meaning to bend it like beckham. >> the city council has apparently raised enough money to buy a new tree which will go up and replace this sad one. and that's the unfortunate news i have here from redding, pennsylvania. >> call the governor and get a stay of execution. >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by benefiber. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. president obama is set to announce in a few minutes that chuck hagel steps down.

it was a joint decision by the two men. he is the first to leave since the mid-term election. >> the former senator plans to stay at the pentagon until a replacement is confirmed. you can see the white house announcement shortly at >> anticipation is mounting over what the grand jury in the michael brown shooting case will decide. the 12-member panel meets again today to consider possible charges for officer darren wilson. he shot and killed the unarmed teenager in august. cbs news legal analyst rikki klieman is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> i think the general expectation is we would have a decision over the weekend. are you surprised this lasted until today? >> i am surprised. certainly the anticipation with all the evidence would be closed on friday and the grand jury would then vote. what happens usually in a grand jury is that it simply is a question of probable cause. was there reason to believe that the crime was committed? and it's a yes or no vote.
8:03 am
how many people in the usual grand jury of 23 say yay there should be a charge? how many say nay? here in missouri and i cannot stress it enough it is a grand jury of 12 people. nine must vote. that's a very difficult vote to get. does it disturb you that it seems they're deliberating? >> i think the the idea of deliberation in a case like this might be warranted by the amount of evidence they've heard. they've heard as much as a trial jury would ordinarily hear. they've heard all of the evidence by the prosecution. all the evidence from the defense. however, this idea of deliberation is what we expect from a trial jury not a grand jury. remember, the trial jury looks at is it proof beyond reasonable doubt. in a case like this, if it should go to indictment that could take days upon days. in a case of indictment we're looking at a low standard of probable cause. remember this, however, there is

the fact that the prosecuting attorney, mr. mccullough has promised to seek a court order if officer wilson is notindict ed ed? >> well, i find that extraordinary. the reason they're secret is to protect the identity of withins in all of the process. it's always been that way. on the other side of this h, what he's saying is if there's no indictment i want to show the community how fair i was. that's why he's doing it. the court, however says this. we're not necessarily going to give you this idea that you can give these out. >> does the jury know that people are watching? do you think they feel pressure at this point? >> how could they not? they live in the community. there's pressure all over the country. >> they're not sequestered, though. >> they're not. this morning planning is under way for official ceremonies to offer marion barry, the man elected four
