the he'll be at san diego's torrey pines. he was out on the course yesterday from the pro-am rounds. he had his fourth back surgery last year. dr. larry nassar was sentenced to more time behind bars yesterday after being confronted by more than 150 girls and women who say he abused threat. kyle stephens, the first accuser to speak, says nassar started molesting her when she was just 6 years old. the first victim to come forward rachael denhollander was a 15-year-old gymnast when nassar first treated her. here's some of what they said in court. >> larry sexually assaulted me repeatedly under the guise of medical treatment for nearly a year. >> i testified to let the world know you are a repulsive liar. >> this is what it looks like when institutions create a
7:28 am
culture where a predator can flourish unafraid and unabated. >> sexual abuse is so much more than a stirring physical act. it changes the trajectory of a vilk tim's life and that's something no one has a right to do. >> children are worth everything, every protection the law can offer. >> little girls don't stay little forever. they grow into strong women that return to destroy your world. >> rachael denhollander and kyle stephens is with us along with dr. jon lapook who's covered the nassar case and joins us at the table. welcome. this is very important and very serious. rachael, i want to start with you. the judge said you're the bravest person who ever entered her courtroom. she was very clear. she wouldn't even allow him to treat her dogs. i want to know what made you come forward all those years ago? what did you know was wrong or what did you think was wrong? >> there were a few times that
7:29 am
nassar crossed the line that i was certain was sexual assault, but at that age i was very convinced this was not something that could be done very quietly. an anonymous voice wouldn't be enough. i was aware of the dynamics of sexual assault, that there's never one victim. it was something he was doing regularly. that was clear. there were others who had come forward. i was right. women had been raising the alarm for years before i walked in larry's door and had been silent. it was not until we were able to put the public pressure on both of those institutions to take the allegations seriously and have the others come forward and stop him. >> kyle you also began raising concerns about larry nassar. he was a family friend. >> yeah. i didn't know there were other victims. i worried there were, but because i was perpetrated in a setting where i didn't know that there was the potential for
7:30 am
that, when you're a patient, obviously there's tons of more female patients. >> who did you report his behavior to? >> i reported his behavior to my parents and they reported it to a michigan state doctor and professor. >> did your parents believe you at first? i didn't disclose all of the details of the abuse because it was very uncomfortable. my parents thought it was strange and chose not to forgive me. >> being that it was uncomfortable, what was it like to hear so many people testify in that courtroom? >> it was empowering and it was beautiful to see so many women reclaiming their voice but it was also incredibly heartbreaking because the vast majority of us did not need to be there. had those first reports to msu, had the complaints to the coach been taken seriously, the vast majority would not have been in that courtroom. >> that's one of the most struggling things yochl view been strong girls and women from
7:31 am
the beginning reporting this behavior, but it's been the silence of people in power that allowed it to continue. with usa gymnastics how did they allow him to prey on other gymnasts? >> usually gymnasts is an organization that's rotting from the inside out. they created a culture of physical psychological, and mental abuse. they also had a poll soif not reporting sexual predators. at the time i was being abused from the time i came forward to some of it being revealed they would systematically file the reports in a file cabinet. when you have a culture that's abusive and you have a policy of not creating sexual abuse, you have created the perfect dynamic for a predator to flourish. >> we should say usa gymnastics released a statement. they say the highest priority is the safety health and well being of our athletes. >> that's unsupported. >> absolutely.
7:32 am
director penny testified under oath at one point and actually defended the policy of sexual abuse because he didn't want to kwoit, perform a witch hunt. when they view reporters as witch hunters, it tells you why women don't feel safe coming forward. >> he gets 175 years. is that enough? more people should pay the price. we have to point out sally jenkins wrote this. you look at how this went on if so many years. so should more people pay or do you believe more people should pay other than larry nassar? >> there absolutely has to be accountability. if we don't institute accountability. if we doend learn from the mistakes that were made and make it clear that the price for making these mistakes are going to be very severe we're just going to keep repeating this cycle of abuse. >> jon what's the most egregious in the case? >> all of it. this is a good time for me to be saying but i would say this appears on a cultural canvas
7:33 am
that has a huge problem. third of them are under the age of 12. so we need to do a lot of work a lot of homework and this needs much further investigation. >> the fact that it happened repeatedly is what i can't get over. that so many people knew about it and allowed it to happen for years. >> the institutions are deceased. they need to recognize they're deceased. that's part of the problem. up until this week they refused to recognize what's going on in their ranks and they need to clean house. >> what did you think of larry nassar's statement that hell hath no fury. >> you turned to the right to return and you shot nassar a look that could have melted iron. what was going through your head.
7:34 am
>> i wanted him to know that it was done. it was finished. >> and that you were both still standing. we thank you very much for coming. >> thank you. >> i realize you have unleashed a tsunami of change. >> i hope so i hope so. >> yeah. >> i believe so too, norah. thank you all. a nearly year-long investigation by congress reveals how your letter carrier may be delivering deadly opioids to your house. ahead, we'll go to capitol hill to find out how the postal service is being overwhelmed by illegal drug shipments from china. and we invite you to subscribe to our "cbs this morning" podcast. you'll get news of the day, extended interviews and podcasts too. find them all on apple's ipod apps. you're watching "cbs this morning." we'll be right back. r a million people just like you start their own businesses. legalzoom. where life meets legal. they appear out of nowhere. my secret visitors. hallucinations and delusions.

7:56 am
stepping down over the larry nassar sexual abuse scandal. >> the prosecutor said the case would have never got on the this point without rachael denhollander. >> that's what i can't get over. >> they're refusing to recognize what's going on in their ranges and they need to clean up. >> the u.s. is open for business and urge them to invest in america. >> they're arguing that the actions are un-american. >> health officials say they've seen a rapid increasef the flu and theaway. >> there's no motive. >> tammy duckworth is set to become the first senator ever to give birth while in office. this is amazing. yeah. now, of course governors have given birth while in office before including the governors of massachusetts and california. i feel like that should have been a bigger story.
7:57 am
i'm nor real o'donnell with john king and john dickerson with gayle king. hi. >> what's your name is? gayle king so nice to meet you. >> me too. >> hi. i'm john o'donnell. >> hello, norah. >> there you go. take two. >> take two. lots of news to cover this morning. michigan state university president lou anna simon is resigning now that larry nassar is facin the rhett of his life in prison about. judge rosemarie aquilina sentenced the former usa and gymnastics doctor up to 175 years in prison. >> she apologized and said in statement, quote, as tragedies are politicized, blame is inevitable. many are praising the judge for supporting more than 150 women who spoke of their abuse during the sentencing hearing. >> it's interesting to me that
7:58 am
your name is sterling. you have a sterling voice of truth. you are a sterling tower of strength that will not be pulled down. you're not just taking down this predators but other predators. you started the tidal wave. you made all of this happen. you made all these voices matter. your sister survivors and i thank you. you are the bravest person i have ever had in my courtroom. >> we just saw rachael at the table last hour before handing down the sentence. judge aquilina read part of the letter that nassar wrote to her. >> now they are seeking the media attention and financial reward. >> and i want you to know as much as it was my honor and privilege to hear the sister survivors, it is my honor and privilege to sentence you
7:59 am
because, sir you do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again. >> after the sentencing gold medal-winning gymnast simon bile who said she, too, was sexually abused by nassar tweeted to the judge, thank you, you are my hero. the president's goal at davos is to give the keynote address. he plans to tell the world how great america is and is doing. our economy is now booming and with all i am doing, it will only get better. margaret brennan is in davos with details of the president's agenda. margaret, good morning. >> good morning. the president is bringing his nationalist "america first" message to this gathering of elite capitalists, but he's going to emphasize he is business-friendly, which may be
8:00 am
hard to reconcile with some of the protectionist trade measures he has supported. earlier this week his administration slapped tariffs on certain foreign-made appliances and solar panels a move the president claims is going to help boost u.s. sales. but those types of actions are what prompted the leaders of france and germany that warns protectionism is not the answer. france's president a former banker cautions at davos that protectionism is undoing the success that globalization has achieved for the world. today president trump will meet privately with european ceos and urge them to invest in america now that the corporate tax rate has been lowered to 21%. he'll also meet with british prime minister theresa may, and those two leaders have a complicated relationship given past clashes over intelligence leaks and some controversial comments made by mr. trump. perhaps the friendliest face that mr. trump will meet with here in davos is itz raley prime
8:01 am
minister benjamin netanyahu. norah, they meet later this morning. >> margaret brennan in davos, thank you. president trump says he's willing to take an oath when he talks to special counsel robert mueller. the president told white house reporters that his interview over the russia investigation is likely to happen within two or three weeks if his lawyers are okay with that. paula reid is at the justice department. paula, good morning. what else do we know? >> we know it's being worked out. whether it's in person in right writing, or some combination of the two. when he's speaking with investigators, he's not actually under oath. he would only go under oath if he was asked to testify before a grand jury. the other thing is will this be reported. the president made a big deal about the fact that clinton's deal with the fbi was not reported and while there's nothing preventing the camera from being in the room it's unlikely his lawyers will want that. it's interesting. in my reporting on other issues
8:02 am
when you read definitions of what he's done he's not the man you see on twitter or the campaign trail. it's possible if you introduce a camera into the situation, you might get something different. >> paula what do you know about what would happen with the transcript, the audio recording or whatever happens to record this moment. will that be locked tight or will the public ever be able to see it? >> it's unlikely that the interview with the investigators would be made public unless it is leaked. if he's called to testify before a grand jury. it would be up to the court whether to release that testimony. you recall that famous testimony of president clinton. that is his grand jury testimony where they worked out the deal where that would be recorded where he wouldn't have to come to court. it's interesting. one of the reasons that the judge can use to release a video or transcript of grand jury testimony is if the subject of the interview talks to the press. >> lots of information there, paula reid.
8:03 am
thank you very much. the next generation to retire may not be ready when the time comes. jill schlesinger is here in studio 57. there she is in the green room. with symbol ways for generation xers and others to build their
8:04 am
retirement without worry.
8:05 am
about 65 million americans are part of generation x and they will be the next generation to retire. a recent td ameritrade survey find many feel uneasy about it. only 33% of gen x workers expect to be very secure in retirement. almost half worry about running out of money. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> what's the key thing to remember? >> let's be incremental. i know it seems daunting to run a calculation and you see how much you have to do. but really the key here is to start, start early, and a little bit at a time. and also recognize this. the longer you work the better off all of this really does end up meaning that i know everyone's i want to retire early, but you know if you look at retiring say, instead of at 62 extend that by say, four years, you'll have a third better lifestyle in retirement. so working longer works. now with the caveat. you can't count on working
8:06 am
because maybe your boss doesn't want you or maybe you can't physic will i do it. so we want you to save but also consider with a life ex-peck tansy a little longer these days to keep working. >> i'm in gen x and you're telling me i've gotten to work more. the other thing, does even worry about retirement? >> absolutely. >> only if you're on easy street do you say, i've got it done. >> even if you're on easy street, there are other things that make you nutty. every survey that we look at shows that in fact we're worried about retirement but we don't do anything about it. i think the reason we don't is because we're really scared of stepping on the scale to use the diet analogy, and so the reality is for most people again, doing a little bit, meaning auto-enroll in your 401(k) and try to do maybe 1% extra every single year the most you possibly can. it doesn't have to be the max. but you can put $18,500 into your 401(k). do the best you can.
8:07 am
you don't have to max out this minute but you have to try and get there. >> when it comes to debts, what should you faye off now and how much should you put aside? i know it varies on your lifestyle. >> the number one priority is consumer debt. credit card dote auto loans. highest interest rate go lowest interest rate. then you have that emergency reserve fund. that emergency reserve fund should be six to 12 months. i know what you're going to sark it's hard to do. you always tell me. that's what we're striving for. >> i didn't say that. >> i heard you think it. and then try to max out and by and large, please i know people want to claim social security early. try to wait until your full retirement age. the numbers work better. >> all right. jill thanks. alcatraz was once the most notorious prison. we have a story on a famous escape. >> reporter: it was here on alcatraz in 1962 that three inmates escaped their cells and
8:08 am
tried to cross the treacherous waters of san francisco bay in a homemade raft. they were never seen again. did they make it or did they perish? a newly discovered letter has added a tantalizing wrinkle to the mystery. that story coming up on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: this morning's "eye on money" sponsored by td ameritrade. call, go online, or visit a branch today. goes. tell me about it. you know, it's made me think i'm closer to my retirement days than i am my college days. hm. i'm thinking... will i have enough? should i change something? well, you're asking the right questions. i just want to know, am i gonna be okay? i know people who specialize in "am i going to be okay." i like that. you may need glasses though. yeah. schedule a complimentary goal planning session today with td ameritrade. somehow we always leave packing to the last minute. guys, i have a couple of things to wash we got this. even on quick cycle, tide pods cleans great 6x the cleaning power,

>> most of them have been recaptured. those who haven't have been killed or drowned in the bay. no one has ever escaped from alcatraz. >> that's a clip from the movie "escape from alcatraz," the breakout of three prison inmates has been the subject of wild speculation for over half a century.
8:13 am
now a handwritten letter questions whether they survived the frigid waters. john blackstone is off the island of alcatraz. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. when this was a prison we might have been shot if we got this close to alcatraz on a boat. here on san francisco bay, it was thought the cold water, currents and strong tides made escape from the prison impossible. but for 55 years the mystery has lingered. did three inmates actually escape and survive. ever since john and clarence anglin along with frank morris disappeared from alcatraz in 1962 the official story is they didn't make it. >> they say they drowned once they got off of alcatraz and their bodied drifted out into the ocean. >> reporter: but now a letter claims all three lived well into
8:14 am
old age. my name is john anglin, the letter begins. i escaped from alcatraz in june 1962. yes, we all made it that night, but barely. anglin's cell is now a favorite stop for tourists who can see the vent he squeezed through when he and the others made their break and floated off the island in a homemade raft. >> it's always been talked about through the family. >> reporter: david widener is a relative. >> no indication that it was really from your uncles. >> yes. actually john and clarence's signatures was on those cards. >> letter was received in to 13 but never before made public. >> really haven't come to a conclusion whether i believe it's john reaching out or not. >> reporter: the u.s. marshal service said they could not determine if it was real. the three remain on the marshal
8:15 am
service most wanted list along with photos of what they might look like today. at the time of the escape she was living on alcatraz. her father was acting warden. >> i can see why the fbi would consider it inconclusive because there's no leads here that you can go furtherer with. >> the letter makes an author. if you announce on tv that i will be promised to go to jail for no more than a year and get medical attention, i will right back exactly where i am. it adds, i am 83 years old and in bad shape. i have cancer. >> for him to say he has cancer and been dyinging i feel like they should have reached out to the family and let them know that the letter exis three did survive these treac waters as the letters claim, they w have outlived the alcatraz closed in 1963, the year after the escape. but the mist remains open. norah? >> john, thank you. so much mist surrounding that.
8:16 am
>> where were they all that time? were they together? were they separate? i believe the letters. >> i do too. >> i believe. >> there is a sequel. >> you're right. alicia keys and swizz beatz, they're getting a special grammy honor tonight. the music power couple talks to us in their first joint interview. >> for me music is the instrument of life. >> i agree. music is the answer it's the reason. it's so powerful. that's why we all love it. >> we do love it. ahead, what the grammy weekend means to them and what makes their relationship so special. plus see what happened to an suv that ended up in a lake after a popular navigation app took a very unexpected direction. ruh-roh. you're watching "cbs this morning."
