8:00 am
good morning. it's wednesday, january 10th, 2018. welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead, republican senator james lankford talks to us about the immigration meeting with president trump that he and other lawmakers attended and how much progress he says they made. plus, one of facebook's investors will be here in studio 57. why he says the company needs to protect the users instead of advertisers. but first here's your "eye opener" at 8:00. rescue operations after rain triggered mudslides following wildfires. >> here's a home, the front of it was ripped right off.
8:01 am
others were obliterated, wiped away. >> first fires and now the mudslides. do you think people were prepared? >> although we knew this was coming, you couldn't believe the result of it. >> it was extraordinary to have reporters watch him negotiate for nearly an hour. >> mr. trump's lawyer filed a lawsuit over this dossier. what does that mean? >> franco's conduct didn't begin with the golden globes but it picked up momentum following the award show. the prime minister of thailand found a way to avoid the press. >> he brought out a life-size cutout of himself and then he told the reporters to ask this guy.
8:02 am
that is beggangster. you nocera huckabee sanders is ordering one for everyone. >> by gangster movie, it's a bold move. >> right. >> if you missed the news, the news is -- >> john dicker solve is now co-host. ing. >> gayle said it's a gangster move. >> life on the morning television. >> we know this. he was in "people" magazine. i was looking for it yesterday. a one of the most beautiful people and smartest person in the business, so i think that's all good things, john. >> they meant on the inside, gayle, and in the dark. >> the inside is what counts. >> thank you, gayle. >> welcome to a new chapter, a new beginning. let's get under way. search and rescue efforts are under way where deadly mud
8:03 am
slooins wiped away dozens of people in santa barbara county. they're concerned the number could climb higher. >> emergency crews say they received more than 600 calls for help in a three-hour period yesterday. carter ens is in hard-hit montecito. that's about two hours west of los angeles. carter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i want you to imagine what this must have been like. it would have been about this time yesterday morning. about 4:00 in the morning. it's dark. you're sounltd asleep. all of a sudden out of in wheno it comes barreling down the hill. take a look. you can see the front of this home was ripped right off. the mud was unleashed early tuesday due to a combination of torrential rainfall and recent wildfires. in one area almost an inch of rain fell in almost 15 minutes. it buried homes and roads in an area scorched by the thomas fire last month.
8:04 am
mudslides are common after a wildfire because trees and vegetation that held the soil in place burned by the fiefrmt it begins sliding downhill. as the flow picks up speed, it collects rocks and trees and pushing them up to 25 miles an hour. the debris damages and destroys homes while the mud begins to harden. now, once that happens, the search and rescue effort becomes very, very difficult. more than 50 people had to be rescued by helicopters including a family of five, and there are still many people unaccounted for. those rescues are going to continue today. john. >> thank you, carter. this morning our ongoing series "issues that matter" takes up the immigration debate that affects millions of people in the u.s. a federal judge last night blocked president trump's plan to phase out the daca program. earlier he negotiated with both
8:05 am
parties for nearly an hour with the cameras rolling. >> the president indicated he's willing to reverse his position on daca, but also said he wants increased border security measures. in an exchange with senator dianne feinstein, the president said this could happen in multiple stages. that brought a quick response from republican house leader kevin mccarthy. >> what about a clean daca bill now with a commitment that we go into a comprehensive immigration reform procedure? >> we're going to do daca and then we'll start immediately on phase 2, which would be comprehensive. >> mr. president. you need to be clear. i think what senator feinstein is asking here, when we talk about daca, we don't want to be back here two years later. we want to have security as the secretary would tell you. >> i think that's what you said. >> no, no, i think you're saying something different. >> what do you think i'm saying? >> i think you're saying daca without security. what i approve is going to be based on reliance of what people in this room come to me with.
8:06 am
i have great confidence. if they come to me with things i'm not in love with, i'm going to do it because i respect them. >> senator james lankford was in that meeting. senator lankford, good morning. >> good morning. >> many times when we talk to senators, we say take us inside the room. we got to see it all. my question to you is how likely do you think a bipartisan deal with daca is? >> it's been very likely. the president in september said i want to have a legislative solution for daca, do border security, chain migration and he added later the visa lottery when that becomes such a big issue. those four issues what he's hammered on over and over again, there's been meetings for about three months to work through the process to figure out what that is. i think it's very likely. >> but it sounds like the president got to sign off on a
8:07 am
clean bill. >> you'd have to be there for the whole context of the meeting. the whole meeting was there for two hours. the press was there for the first 50 minutes. the president laid it out from the beginning. it always includes border security and chain migration. he wants to limit it to just that, not everything in the comprehensive bill. i think senator feinstein misunderstood that and she said let's just do daca and he said, that's what i'm talking about. was the > wias there clarity on where the president was trying to go? it seems muddy. >> no. it was clear. they went around the table and say can we agree. these are the four areas. we're not going to do viva areas and others. just deal with the daca and
8:08 am
trying to deal with a permanent answer for what's happening with those daca students, what's dealing with border security. i think there's wide agreement on doing border security. obviously migration has been a big issue. that's going to affect a lot of other families, so we have to deal with chain migration as well and figure out what that means for the future. >> you said it's open to the debasement isn't that the key issue, that the democrats don't want a wall for taking care of these daca kids. >> in 2006 there was the secure fence act. at that time fencing was added to the southern border. that was not a partisan issue at that point. it's since become a partisan issue. when he said out loud in front of the whole group with the media there. i'm not talking about a wall
8:09 am
from sea to shining sea. we need to do that. other areas, we need technology, additional manpower, and, quite frankly, there are loopholes in the wall. that's part of border security, if someone can get across the border and be able to stay here, that becomes an issue as well. all of those things are there. it's not a 2,000-mile wall. i don't think that was ever his intent, but he was clear about it yesterday. >> do you think daca can pass? >> i do think daca can pass. >> without the border wall. >> it's not a matter of without the border wall. there will be sections that will be there. it's part of border security. it's just not going to be a complete border wall for 2,000 miles. >> do you think it was helpful or hurtful to have the cameras there. it seemed to expose a lot of contradiction an conflict in the room. >> i think it's entirely appropriate to tell you the truth. i've not been around this town at all, but it was interesting
8:10 am
to have the cameras in that meeting that long. as some of the press pool was leaving one of them turned to me and said, that was unprecedent. fwhefr have this kind of access to the meeting in the white house as we did yesterday because they were in there for the majority of the meeting. i think it's interesting to see the give and take to try to provide clarity. i've said it over and over. if you don't find the scope of what you're talking about, you've never get on to the next step. it's especially important for students and those involved that we get that right. >> thank you very much, senator lankford, for joining us this morning. >> good morning, and welcome, john. >> thank you. >> thank you, senator. very nice. an elite gymnast said she was the first to

8:26 am
to refreeze, so just expect that there could still be some problems out there when it comes to your commute, rest of the morning next few hours may be dicey or icy, and in the afternoon, there could be a left over dampness but it would be helding with time and drying out by p.m. rush. i don't anticipate having any major problems for p.m. rush and thomas we are milder even still by friday a new storm is here, meisha coming with the trade off very warm air. >> katie, thanks very much. >> we are looking at pennsylvania turnpike because we have seen accident after accident here, pennsylvania turnpike eastbound, moving to the shoulder this one right here involving five to six vehicles overturn vehicle with entrapment, very slick conditions here, good news it was closed and now just right lane that is blocked westbound at bensalem. another accident 309 northbound at route 73, lanes are block here as well, rahel, over to you. other next update 8:55. ahead this morning a early facebook investor tell us

8:31 am
to do. >> with all due respect, sir, i have done battle every single day of my life and many men have underestimated me. this lot seemed bound to do the same, but they will rue the day. >> you the tell that's tom doing maggie thatcher, osks, and she was doing forest gump. and that's from "toy story." you can tell the two of them have what we call chemistry. >> chemistry. >> they get along very well. >> they're out on ellen's show promoting "the post." guess what? we're promoting "the post too" because we've got matthew rhys. there he is. >> matthew plays danielle in "all about the pentagon papers."
8:32 am
>> i can't wait for him to come to the table. and roger mack aoger mcnamee is early investors in facebook. the u.s. officials are questioning apple's eye phone slowdown. last month they acknowledged the slow performance in older iphones to prevent them from powering off. senator john thune wrote a letter to apple's ceo tim cook and asked whether apple has considered rebate offers to customers who paid the full price. french prosecutors are looking into potential and programs obsolescence. they did not immediately respond to questions for comment. according to a database, mr. trump made 2,001 misleading claims in just his first year in
8:33 am
office. it says his most repeated false claim has hit a new high. that is, jobs. he repeated it 91 times theechb in the campaign he repeatedly said the market was ready to crash. most people who try one cigarette become daily smokers. the study is based on data from the uk, the u.s., australiaing and new zealand. more than two thirds of those who tried cigarettes progressed to daily habit. researchers said it confirms the importance of stopping cigarette experimentation. >> and "usa today" said there was a mavis pay discrepancy. actor mark wahlberg got $1.5 million for the reshoot. michelle williams was paid less than $1,000. what? the movie was reshot after kevin spacey was replaced. in a previous interview she said she would forfeit her salary to
8:34 am
make this happen. representatives for mark wahlberg and ridley scott did not respond to comments. a lot of people have questions about this especially since michelle had more scenes and just the disparity. >> they're also represented by the same agency, which is interesting as well. >> not right. not right. >> reporter: one of facebook's early investors and a former mentor to ceo zuckerberg warns of the social media giant's harmless and irreversible effects on society. roger mcnamee argues that facebook has prioritized advertisers and not protected users. mcnamee writes, we are drowning in evidence that there are costs society may not be able to afford. in a new year's pledge zuckerberg admits facebook has a lot of work to do this year.
8:35 am
there are false news articles that could reach more than 2 billion monthly active uhers. roger mcnamee is managing director of the private equity firm managing partners. he still holds a post with facebook. >> it's one of these really sad things. i feel like jimmy stewart character in an alfred hitchcock movie. i spent years helping to build this company. when i first met mark, they were having an existential crisis. i was asked to go in and meet with the boss. he couldn't tell me why. i sit down with him. i'm closer to him and that i am to you. remember t company's two years old. he's two years old. i said, mark, if it hasn't happened, microsoft or yahoo! is going to try to buy you. everyone is going to take it. i'm telle you you have one of the greatest opportunities i've
8:36 am
ever seen. don't take it. build the kpaechlt i talked to him every week, sometimes every day. you know, he outgrew me and so the company goes on and it becomes massively successful. i'm a huge fan. i'm like, wow, this is the greatest thing i ever did and then right in the beginning of the campaign in 2016 i see thing goigs wrong and eventually in october i go to them and say i think we have a strukt rule problem and they treat it like a p.r. problem. >> what did you see? >> i saw people -- essentially bad actors man in lathe people. >> you saw political ads popping up. >> i did, but i also saw people scraping facebook and black lives matter and selling it to police departments, financial institutions to discriminate in housing. it was a white rage of things.
8:37 am
in order to get people engaged toy used things that effectively addicted them, so people lost the power to really discern what they were reading and it became hard to get. they call it filter bubbles. people get trapped in this place where everyone agrees with them because facebook over shows you stuff you think you want. >> is it painful to speak out this way as an early investor? >> it's so unbelievable. what i want to do is sit down with mark and cheryl and say, listen, this is a excavation where you need to silt there and recognize that you didn't cause this to happen, but it's your responsibility because it's your product. >> they don't seem to want to talk to you. >> no, they don't. it's too bad. i want to help and others want to help. my partner tristan harrison and the rest of our team is saying, listen, this is a crisis. the government of myanmar is using this product to make the
8:38 am
genocide in myanmar acceptable. there are horrible things going on. you need to change the product, the algorithms, but there's a good outcome. >> you want to talk to us. they talked to us. they said, we've made major progress in combatting false news, fighting harassment, bringing more. we know we have more to do and we'll put our heads down and do the work. you've been talk about outside actor. what about inside facebook where they use money to capture people. what about that? >> that's essentially the problem. essentially the very tools -- the russians didn't hack the system. they did exactly what advertiser are supposed to do. 6 it's a smart part of the
8:39 am
problem. it's facebook groups. it's this notion that what they want to do is appeal to fear and anger because those are the things that moat gate you. >> how do solve the problem as you see it? >> i think the most important thing we have to focus on is children. my friend jim dyer gives me the rules of thumb for parents. you have to be good role model. if yu ire using your phone 24 hours a day, your children are going to pick up on that. you have to be their best teacher. you have to set clear image. then they have a thing call deed advice-free dinner where they say have this meal where the whole family is together and you actually talk to each other. i say if you're an adult, all those rules apply as well. set limits. turn off your notifications. don't let this thing control your life. >> really interesting.

8:45 am
time. it took me months to copy it all. >> what the hell? >> well, we were all former government guys, top clearance, all of that. mcnamara wanted a chance to examine what had happened. he would say to us, let the chips fall where they may. >> brave man. >> having guilt was bigger. i don't think he saw what was coming, what we'd find. but it didn't take him long to figure out. if the pugly ever saw these papers, they would turn against us. >> matthew rhys, welcome to the table. >> thank you very much. >> you played the role with a muted matter of fact-intensity. >> i think i saw that. >> talk about ellsberg. >> incredibly so. i was ashamed to shay i didn't know as much as i did.
8:46 am
>> we forgive you. >> thank you. he was a pioneer in his time in whistle blowing if you will and had such clarity of intention about the wrongdoing this world was doing, not just to the united states, but to the country of vietnam as well. >> and then you meet the real daniel ellsberg who's 80-something? >> we'll say 80-something. >> what struck you most? what did you want to say to him? >> certainly how his campaigning is tireless. he still is as ardent a servant as he was then about this sort of -- you know, the wrongdoings in this world. i was -- the more i lived, the more i was staggered by his bravery, really, that he knew the consequences and this is a man who was a former marine working with the government. you know, he was a true patriot but just saw the wrongdoing and said i can't do it. >> true patriot as you said.
8:47 am
he was working for the rand corporation and here he saw a study that had undergone four different presidents and the decision-making, warts and all. it was buried and he took them out serendipitously and started photocopying. in the movies he had people photocopying. but in real life who was photocopying? >> he took his children. >> how old with they? >> 11 and 8. they were top secret. they were helping him. it's what got the fbi ultimately onto him. he was divorced at the time and the children went back and told the grandmother what was happening, like what we've been doing with father. oh, cutting the tops that say top secret. >> and grandma went -- >> grandma dropped the dime on him. >> when you met him, are you taking notes or is there
