lower today. >> she put a lot of soul in the world by being in that moment, gospel, jazz, rhythm and blues. i mean, she was across all of it. how did she do that? >> well, she was someone who synthesized everything that comes before. you have the blues. negro spirituals. gospel. jazz. d duwop. all these sounds. it was the first time i call them ancestral sounds. they're the sounds of the american way of life, but somehow she made it global. it was the first time you would see something like this. for a black woman to come out and really share that sound with the rest of the world is amazing. it's a visionary thing that you can't really explain how it happened. but when you hear it, you're, like, oh, that's us. it's universal.

7:10 am
from detroit, stevie wonder and smokey robinson. they will share their memories of their friend aretha franklin. more than a dozen former senior intelligence officials are sharply criticizing president trump's decision to pull former cia director john brennan's security clearance. a letter first reported by cbs news calls it inappropriate and deeply regrettable. >> it claims the president's decision, quote, has nothing to do with who should and should not hold security clearances. and everything to do with an attempt to stifle free speech. cbs news senior national security contributor michael morell is one of those who signed the letter. he's a former cia acting director. michael, good morning. >> good morning, john. >> what is the key danger of what the president did in your view? >> john, i was not just a signer of this letter. i was one of the organizers. and i will tell you that it was
7:11 am
difficult to get the language just right. because there were those of us who believe that what john has done since he left government and how he has chosen to use his voice is appropriate and actually required in a democracy, and there are those of us who believe that he is acting inconsistent with the stature of the former director, so it was tough to get that language right. what we all agreed on was two things, one is that john is a patriot. that he worked his entire life to keep the country safe. that there are americans who are alive today that wouldn't be if john had not served in government. and we did none of us like the allegations that were being made against him by the white house and by some members of congress, including senator paul. the other thing we agreed on, john, is that the use of a national security tool for political purposes is
7:12 am
inappropriate, unprecedented and dangerous in a democracy. >> dangerous how? is this a national security issue? >> so it's not -- john, it's not a national security issue. it's dangerous in that there are individuals, many on the national security side, who want to criticize the government's policies. some who are supportive and some who want to criticize. some who want to criticize the president. and this in our view is an attempt to incriminate them. the risk here is that a number of people will no longer speak out because they'll be afraid of the president taking action against them. jim clapper, one of the people on the list, the security clearances the president is considering lifting, says he is currently advising members of the trump administration right now as we speak. he didn't want to name them. what does that tell you about the president and his state of mind now? is he aware that he could actually be shooting himself and
7:13 am
the country's security in the foot? >> it's a great question. because the purpose, the reason that former senior officials maintain these clearances is that -- not for their own benefit, but that they can advise the current government. i do that all the time. i've been on two commissions since i retired. and i'm -- i advise senior officials all the time. many -- as do many of the others on the list. this is actually a loss for the government. not for the individuals. >> all right. michael morell, we thank you for joining us this morning. >> you're welcome. president trump's daughter-in-law says the latest secret recording from ex-white house aide omarosa manigault newman is a fraud. the audio reveals that lara trump, who's married to eric trump, offering her $15,000 a month campaign job. omarosa says it proves the president wanted to buy her silence after she was fired. lara trump says she was shocked and saddened by what she called a betrayal. omarosa's promoting a new memoir published by shame -- simon and

schuster which is owned by cbs. chris watts made his first court appearance yesterday, as the soul suspect in the case. omar villafranca is outside the family's home in frederick, colorado. >> reporter: prosecutors think the mother and the two daughters were killed inside this home and that has friends and neighbors in this area shocked. >> those two little girls are so innocent and so sweet and i just don't understand how you could do this. >> reporter: ashley bell's daughter played with watts 4-year-old bella and 3-year-old celeste. bell's memories of the seemingly close-knit family are shattered.
7:15 am
>> i kept telling myself, no, no, no, he wouldn't do anything to her. >> mr. watts, why did you kill your wife and two children? >> reporter: chris watts said little inside a colorado courtroom on thursday. the silence was a dramatic reversal from earlier in the week, as watts pleaded for his family's safe return. >> i just want them to come back and if -- if they're not safe right now, that's what's tearing me apart. >> reporter: thursday, police recovered a body believed to be shanann's on an oil field where her husband worked. bodies believed to be bella and celeste were also found in close proximity to their mother. watts was fired on wednesday, the same day of his arrest. investigators have not revealed the possible motive. >> we love shanann and those girls so much. >> reporter: friends nicholas and amanda thayer say that she expressed concerns of infidelity. >> it came to her mind that possibly he could be cheating. >> as horrible as this outcome
7:16 am
is, our role now is to do everything that we can to determine exactly what occurred and assist in filing a thorough case. >> reporter: shanann's family is running the gamut of emotions. they're confused and they're angry over this tragedy. police are not commenting on reports that chris confessed to killing his wife and two daughters. but he is expected to be formally charged on monday. this morning there's a new push for investigations after a scathing grand jury report detail alleged sex abuse by more than 300 catholic priests in pennsylvania. the vatican called for enablers to be held accountable, adding, the church must learn hard lessons from its past. >> reporter: the u.s. conference of catholic bishops has proposed a new system for reporting of uses. some survivors are deman
7:17 am
more action. they're greeting the vatican's response with skepticism because they say they've heard the same rhetoric before. >> clearly, the holy see condemns sexual abuse of minors. >> reporter: insisting pope francis was on the side of survivors. it was in response to accusations the highest levels of the catholic church concealed 300 predator priests in pennsylvania. >> we can express our feelings about these horrible crimes in two words. those are shame and sorrow. >> reporter: shaun doherty was just 10 years old when his family's priest began abusing them. attorney general josh shapiro released a sweeping grand jury report into sex abuses in the catholic church. what's everyone's reaction? >> rage, anger, did i gust. it's just more of the same. >> reporter: snap, a group of abuse survivors, asks the u.s.
7:18 am
justice department to open a nationwide investigation. similar reviews have already taken place in ireland and australia. yesterday, the attorneys general of new york and new jersey indicated they may launch investigations in their states. >> the sheer scale of the issue in pennsylvania was -- really couldn't have been worse. >> reporter: the theology professor believes the same horrific abuses and cover-ups found in pennsylvania likely exist elsewhere. >> an intelligent bishop who wanted to get ahead of this problem would volunteer his archives, avoid the fallout of what happened in pennsylvania. >> reporter: the archdiocese of newark says it is auditing its files on abusive priests and will determine a protocol for any names released once that is complete. cardinal mckcarrick was newark' archbishop for 14 years.
7:19 am
>> nikki battiste, thank you. olympian bode miller and his wife are channeling the grief of losing their young daughter in a drowning accident into bri preventing other deaths. >> one of the things i've wrestled with is the guilt and the responsibility of it and how i need to change the way i parent with this new understanding i have for water. >> ahead, how the millers believe that good morning. hazy conditions out there. it is looking not as blue as yesterday. air quality in the moderate range. there is some call coverage to start out. a lot of this will burn off quickly. leaving you with sunshine and hate. 93 concord, 94 livermore. 66 san francisco. staying very cool at the beaches over the weekend.

7:33 am
working to turn their pain into a platform for change. the federal government estimates some 300 children, ages 5 or younger, die in swimming pool accidents every year. it's something two families, one-time strangers, endured on the same day back in june. emmi was the 19-month-old daughter of olympian bode miller and levi was an energetic son. dana jacobson joins us. >> it is a tragic story. it's resonating with so many people. the lives of both the miller and hughes families were shattered by similar drowning accidents in swimming pools. two months later, those families are working to sound the alarm, to create awareness of how fast and how often a drowning occurs in hopes of preventing other families from feeling the devastation they now endure. bode miller has spent most of his life on the slopes. but today he's in the water with

7:36 am
their shared heartache is the basis for their friendship and inspiration for their fight. >> i think one of the most powerful things out there is a parent's love for their children. to lose a child and still have that love. it needs to be directed somewhere. >> reporter: to try and reach the biggest audience, they'll soon meet with the aap, the american academy of pediatrics. >> parents need a water safety plan. if a pediatrician were to say what is your water safety plan? >> reporter: they hope to convince the aap to mandate that all pediatricians suggest the dangers at regular checkups. >> oh, my gosh, that's amazing. >> reporter: nash is the same age as levi when he lost his life. aside from birth defects, drowning is the leading cause of death in children ages 1 to 4. nicole remembers levi's last visit to the doctor. >> we discussed if he could drink out of a cup. if he could scribble with a crayon. lots of talk about screen time. can we please talk about what really matters and that is the

7:39 am
are hoping the danger surrounding water is a topic that every pediatrician is having with parents and children are learning about it in schools. that's probably the biggest part of their message. we have to talk about this, no matter how uncomfortable it is. they can't bring their kids back. they can't bring emme back. >> that's why it's so generous and brave of them to share their pain with us in hopes it will help others. i think most people don't know the statistics about drowning with little kids. you don't really know that statistic until it happens to you. >> exactly. >> that's why it's so great they're saying pediatricians, please let parents know. >> nicole said parents look for the loophole. i'm not going to be that family. these are examples they are now. >> parents have to listen, that's the thing. >> morgan said there's no more love than a parent has for a child. >> that's true. >> dana, thank you. well, the first generic rival to epi pen has just been approved. ahead, how the new competition could drive down the cost of a product that's become a symbol
