7:04 am
for a time as the trump campaign chairman. paula reid is outside the courthouse in alexandria, virginia, paula, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this trial, the first big public test for the special counsel, has nothing to do with president trump or his campaign. but investigators uncovered evidence of possible crimes while investigating russian meddling in the 2016 campaign. and some of the alleged bank fraught occurred while manafort was chairman of the trump campaign. paul manafort stared down his former colleague as he took the stand, but gates looked directly at special counsel prosecutor greg andres as he asked gates, did you commit crimes with manafort? yes, gates replied. the special counsel's office charged gates and manafort with dozens of crimes related to their lobbying efforts on behalf of foreign governments. but gates agreed to flip on his former boss in exchange for leniency. pleading guilty to conspiracy against the united states and making a false statement to the special counsel office. on the stand, gates admitted
7:05 am
that at manafort's direction, he falsified tax returns, hid millions of dollars from ukrainian operative, failed to report foreign bank accounts and failed to register manafort as a foreign agent. gate also admitted that while he helped manafort commit these crimes, he also embezzled from him. i added money to expense reports and created expense reports that were not accurate, he said, to pad his salary by several hundred thousand dollars. gates also complimented his former boss, saying that manafort is probably one of the most politically brilliant strategists i've ever worked with. >> paul manafort has done an amazing job. >> reporter: during the campaign, president trump also praised manafort and his team for their strategy. >> all of paul's people, paul brought on the staff, and we really do, we have a great staff, talented people. >> reporter: but fol e lowing the indictments, the trump administration consistently downplayed manafort's role. >> manafort has nothing to do with our campaign. but i feel so -- i tell you, i feel a little badly about it.
7:06 am
they went back 12 years to get things he did 12 years ago. paul manafort worked for me for a very short period of time. >> reporter: prosecutors have at least three more hours worth of questions for gates and then defense attorneys will get a crack at hill. manafort's whole defense is he put his trust in gates, who then embezzled from him and failed to accurately report their business income to the government. vlad. >> all right, paula reid, thank you. this morning, president trump says anyone doing business with iran will not be doing business with the united states. that tweet follows a presidential order reimposing sanctions that the obama administration suspended under a multinational nuclear deal with iran. the u.s. withdrew from that agreement in may. weijia jiang is near the president's new jersey golf club where he is on vacation. weijia, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, vlad. the white house says the move is meant to change the regime's behavior and not to take down leaders in iran. it targets iran's gold and medal industries as well as it's auto

applications that could reveal their location. the move comes after a data firm released a global map earlier this year, exposing potential military activity in war zones such as iraq and syria. the order says the devices could potentially create unintended security consequences and increased risk to the mission. and a new study suggests women are more likely to survive a heart attack if they are treated by a female doctor at the hospital. a review of heart attack patients admitted to emergency rooms over a 19-year period shows 12% of women treated by female physicians died. 13.3% of women treated by male doctors died. scientists also found women's survival rates go up when they're treated by male doctors who have more female colleagues. >> makes me glad i have our dr. tara narula on speed dial. i'm calling her. some people in the st. louis area may have a higher risk of getting cancer. a health report found some residents who grew up in areas contaminated by radioactive waste decades ago may have

7:33 am
i have things to contribute to society. >> reporter: she and her husband, gerard, are just two of many residents here who believe their family's cancers were caused by decades-old radioactive contamination. in the 1940s and '50s, st. louis was key to america's nuclear weapons program. the government hired the malencrot chemical company to process uranium used to make the atomic bombs dropped in japan in world war ii. the radioactive waste from that processing were then stored at sites in north county, tens of thousands of barrels, many stacked and left open to the elements, contaminated the soil and nearby coldwater creek. it's the creek that sometimes flooded the park next to the oscos' house. >> now it looks normal. >> right. >> but in your mind, this is never going to be normal? >> no. >> looks can be deceiving. >> yeah. >> reporter: the army corps of

♪ i got my mind set on you, i got my mind set on you ♪ well, americans facing retirement are now the fastest growing group of people filing for bankruptcy. a new study by the consumer bankruptcy project reveals the rate of people older than 65 who filed for bankruptcy has tripled since 1991. those seniors now represent more than 12% of all bankruptcy filers. the number has skyrocketed nearly 500% in 25 years. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger joins us at the table with more on this rather revealing and startling survey, jill. the economy's doing so well now. why are more seniors retiring -- or filing for bankruptcy, i mean! >> the problem is these are
8:16 am
longer-term trends, and certainly, the great recession accelerated it. but when you think about it, a lot of these people thought, hey, i'm going to be able to retire when i'm 62, and they really may not have been able to or they had to wait a little bit longer for social security. we also know in the early '80s that 401(k) plans, which are voluntary, basically started to replace guaranteed corporate pensions, and that was a huge shift for so many americans. we also know that we're shouldering a larger share of health care costs, out of pocket, deductibles rising. and you put all of this against a backdrop where median household income, while it's improved recently, the economy has done really well, over the last 20, 30 years, incomes are essentially stagnant. so, this has become a huge problem for those folks coming into retirement. i should also mention, they're coming into retirement with a ton of debt, credit card debt, mortgage debt, fastest growing segment of student loan borrowers are over 55. >> wow. >> it's not for them. it's for their kids and grandkids. >> right.
8:17 am
>> you touched on medical costs being a problem. why? >> well, what's happened is we now know that the median 65-year-old has about 60,000 bucks in the bank. that's huge. >> that's their savings? >> that's their savings. but the bottom 25% have just about $3,300. you could have a simple illness and that gets wiped out. and these medical bills don't get erased. a lot of the people who responded to this survey said it was the medical or health situations that exacerbated something terrible, forced them into a bankruptcy. >> so, jill, what should people who are planning for retirement do to avoid bankruptcy? >> i know, i feel terrible because a lot of the people who are there already, there is not much to do. but i should say that if you're in your 40s and 50s, obviously, saving more money is important, but we really want to encourage people to not claim social security at age 62. you can claim as early as 62, but your benefits are permanently reduced by up to 25%! that can impact a nonworking
8:18 am
spouse who's claiming on your record. we would love you to actually retire with a minimal debt. and also, the longer you work, even if it's just a few months, even just a year, can make an incremental difference for your retirement. so, don't claim at 62, work longer, clear out that debt. say no to your kids, because we know that too many people are actually absorbing the debt of their children for themselves. >> that may be the hardest part. >> i know. >> work as long as you can. all right. thank you, jill. beyonce's much buzzed-about issue of "vogue" is out. have you seen it? it's amazing. ahead, how the pop mega star is making history and
