7:04 am
iran accused the tanker's crew of various legal infractions and the incidents come amid an escalating showdown between iran and the west as the landmark 2015 nuclear deal continues to unravel. we'll go to the united arab emirates. what is iran saying this morning? >> reporter: good morning, guys. yeah. the dramatic news coming from iran's intelligence ministry, saying that they have arrested 17 suspects who they say, and i quote here, that they've confessed to acting as spies for the c.i.a. now, iran has made claims like this before in the past and they're impossible to verify at this stage. but these claims follow dramatic turn of events here in the gulf in which a british flagged tanker was seized by iranian commandos andd is currently in iranian custody. really ratcheting up tensions here. this video released by iran's
7:05 am
revolutionary guard apparently shows in real time the british flagged oil tanker forced into iranian territorial waters, radio recordings also capturing the moment a british warship warned the iranians not to interfere with the vessel. >> if you obey, you will be safe. alter your course to 360 degrees immediately, over. >> this is british warship foxtrot two three four six. please confirm that you are not intending to violate intenalaw by unlawfully attempting to board. >> reporter: minutes later iranian commandos took control of the vessel apprehending the international crew and replacing the union jack with the flag of iran. this morning the prime minister theresa may is considering retaliation including freezing iranian assets. the seizure of the ship comes just two weeks after the uk's royal marines helped seize an
7:06 am
iranian tanker off the coast of gibraltar. it is believed the vessel was carrying oil to syria in breach of eu sanctions. iran's foreign minister had this to say about the seizure and economic sanctions from the west. >> this is economic terrorism pure and simple. we need to repeat this again and again. >> reporter: now the u.s. is trying to pull together a sort of maritime coalition to protect the ships that travel through this region. a lot of ships traveling through this region. but they've been struggling to get help particularly from the europeans who we understand are angry that president trump withdrew from that bm era nuclear deal, a deal they say was crucial to preventing things like this from happening and is really behind the spiraling tensions here in the gulf. >> tensions incredly high in the gulf. thank you very much. up to a million protesters are expected in the streets of puerto rico today to protest the
7:07 am
governor, who says he is not stepping down. governor ricardo rossello announced last night he will not seek re-election but stopped short of resigning. he faces backlash after details of an obscenity laced online chat involving him became public. ctm lead national correspondent david begnaud is in the midst of the protests in san juan. did the governor's announcement appease protesters at all? >> reporter: good morning. the governor has said despite the protests he is not going anywhere. he says he's been watching the protests over the last week but it will be interesting to see what he has to say after he sees what happens today. already there are thousands of people who are gathered here in san juan. they plan to close a major expressway that goes right through the capital. the largest mall, which is right behind the cameraman, has been closed. why don't you spin around and show everybody what the scene looks like as nearly a million
7:08 am
people are expected to march throughout the island today. >> after governor ricardo rossello's announcement protesters blocked the only entrance to a government building where the governor had met with mayors from his party. the governor was able to get out but there were some lawmakers who were trapped. police moved in after a couple hours, using smoke bombs and pepper spray to disperse the crowd. around san juan people were banging pots and pans in protest. back in front of the governor's mansion -- >> i think he just plaed it worse. >> reporter: -- protesters were nearly unanimous in their reaction to the governor's decision to stay in office. >> i felt, frankly, insulted that he thought he could get away with just not running for governor in 2020, lilike what? this is -- we are not asking to compromise with you, sir. we want you out. >> reporter: they are furious
7:09 am
after leaked chats showed the governor and associates using profane, homophobic language attacking critics and making fun of people who died during hurricane maria. >> after the hurricane i was hungry. i didn't have water. i didn't have anything. and then this guy was living it up. no, you're not fit to be governor. out. >> it's not even personal anymore. it's more about that rage that we have inside that we have really dumb people running this place and we just want them out. >> reporter: the man you just saw in the story is planning to be here today. it has been so interesting to tell the stories of every day puerto ricans who want to be here today. people who are taking off of work to be here. again, the question becomes, what is the governor going to do? when a man who was elected with 640,000 votes sees upwards of a million people packing the streets all united and calling for his resignation. will he change his mind?
7:10 am
as of now, he said he has no plans to. >> and to be continued. thank you, reporting from san juan. tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of hong kong for the seventh weekend in a row. police and protesters clashed in new violence in the chinese controlled territory. this unrest comes as the political crisis there deepens. ramy inocencio reports from hong kong. >> reporter: a new night of chaos as the city seems to be spiraling out of control. protesters clad in black with faces covered again blocked roads and squared off with police. the stand-off between riot police here and antigovernment protesters lasted for about 90 minutes. it was an ebb and flow over that time with police firing several rounds of tear gas as well as rubber bullets until the protesters left. at the same time, new violence
7:11 am
erupted near hong kong's border with mainland china. video showed a mob of men dressed in white believed to be members of hong kong's gangs beating pro democracy protesters and passengers in a subway station with sticks and bats. the use of gangs is a common tactic in mainland china to take action while avoiding the use of police. the area where this happened strongly supports beijing. residents complained it took an hour for police to respond. nearly 50 people were injured. what started as anger over contentious extradition bill backed by beijing has now evved into a bigger war over hong kong's freedoms and future. we are outside beijing's top office in hong kong, a symbol to many of china's growing power in this city. last night protesters defied police orders, marched here, and defaced the building. the government has since condemned all forms of violence this past weekend and says they are going to bring everyone responsible to justice.
7:12 am
for cbs this morning, hong kong. at least two deaths are being blamed on the scorching heat that blanketed much of the country. more than half a dozen record high temperatures were broken or tied in the eastern u.s. on saturday and sunday. cooler temperatures are on the way but it brings severe weather. meg oliver is in new brunswick, new jersey just outside new york city. i understand a construction crane collapsed during the violent weather there? >> reporter: that's right. the crane crashed into this house behind me sunday evening in what neighbors describe as a fast moving storm. fortunately, no one was inside at the time. but more storms are expected today following a weekend of widespread, extreme heat and humidity that cut off power to more than 46,000 people in this region alone. severe thunderstorms breaking the weekend's sweltering heat wave are now threatening millions from tennessee to new england with heavy rain and flash flooding.
7:13 am
in colorado and ohio over the weekend fast moving water inundated roads and back yards. powerful winds brought down trees from minnesota to michigan. damaging homes and causing power outages impacting hundreds of thousands. >> and i came home to all of this and finding everybody safe, thank goodness. >> reporter: during a storm in new jersey heather harris says she and her circumstances college roommates were away from their home when this construction crane sliced through one of their bedrooms. >> it happened probably 30 minutes after i walked out. it just makes me feel like i'm meant to be here. >> reporter: about a thousand miles south in clear water, florida, city officials say lightning injured eight people on the beach. one of them critically. >> just instantly fell. >> you could feel the lightning strike through the ground on the whole beach. >> reporter: but with the dangerous weather came cooler temperatures. following more than two days of
7:14 am
stifling heat that felt well into the triple digits in cities like memphis, raleigh, and boston. >> we've had heat waves before. this just seemed a little more out of the ordinary. >> reporter: in new york city and neighboring westchester county as many as 50,000 customers lost electricity at one point sunday evening. new york governor andrew cuomo slammed con edison sunday evening saying they should have been better prepared for the heat. tony? >> cooler weather can't come soon enough, meg. thank you very much. our latest cbs news battleground tracker poll finds most americans disagree with president trump's recent controversial tweets about four progressive lawmakers. in fact, 59% say they disagree with his tweets saying the four congresswomen of color should go back to where they came from. 40% on the other hand agree with him. the split is mostly along partisan lines. weijia jiang is at the white house. could the numbers impact the
7:15 am
president's position? >> reporter: good morning. president trump often factors in his supporters so they could. our cbs news poll shows more than 80% of people who agree with him are republicans and that may explain the whip lash on his position just one day after saying he was unhappy about racist chants from his supporters he called them patriots and now he is continuing those attacks on the congresswomen. after a week of calling four democratic congresswomen of color anti-american -- >> these are people that in my opinion hate our country. the hate-filled extremists. we're dealing with people that hate our country. >> reporter: -- president trump took his attack a step further, claiming he doesn't believe they are capable of loving our country. senior white house adviser steven miller echoed the president's message on sunday. >> these four congresswomen detest america as it exists, as it is currently constructed. they want to tear down the structure of our country. >> reporter: democratic
7:16 am
congressman elijah cummings defended his colleagues and called the president a racist. he warned what that means for the nation. >> we're getting more and more people emboldened with racist, making racist statements and treating people badly. >> reporter: the controversy started when mr. trump tweeted the congresswomen should go back to their original countries. president trump's atarks on representative ilhan omar at a campaign rally prompted a chant of send her back, which went on for 13 seconds. [ chant ] >> send her back. send her back. >> reporter: sources tell cbs news vice president mike pence was one of the people who voiced concerns about the chanting leading the president to distance himself from it for about a day. pence spoke to cbs news chief washington correspondent major garrett. >> the president was very clear. >> was he? >> that he wasn't happy about it and that if it happened again he might -- he'd make an effort to speak out about it. >> all right. shifting gears and looking ahead
7:17 am
slightly, wednesday robert mueller is scheduled to testify on capitol hill. what's the mood in the white house? >> reporter: sources tell cbs news the mood in the west wing is a collective shrug because they are not worried since the special counsel robert mueller has already said he will not testify beyond what he has already said in his report. the president's personal attorneys tell cbs news they are feeling very confident for the same reason. tony, mr. trump says he doesn't even plan to watch the hearings. >> what are democrats and also republicans then looking for from the hearing? >> reporter: you remember after this report came out the president insisted there was no collusion, no obstruction, even though mueller wrote he could not exonerate the president on the matter of obstruction. so i think they're really going to dig in for him to explain why. of course republicans want to know, want to focus on the origins of this investigation because they claim along with the president that it was unfair to begin with and it never should have happened. >> reporter: thank you very
7:18 am
much. >> thank you very much. we'll bring you a cbs news special report when former special counsel robert mueller testifies before congress on wednesday morning. >> did she say the president said he is not going to watch the hearing? >> i think he'll watch the hearing. >> maybe a little look see. a road trip for an american woman and her boyfriend ends in tragedy. the mystery over what happened to this couple ahead. they were found murdered in one of those days where we notice a big difference between in and heat and coast cool. look at the numbers on screen we are in the low 90s for inland spots. every disco going to 68. we split the difference would 85 for san jose. 75 in oakland. over the next seven days we keep doing this. will be warmer for inland locations to the middle part of this week we go back to the mid- 90s but other than that it is the low to mid 70s in general over the bay, all week long. >> we call it the mother

many americans rely on online reviews to choose a business or service. 82% of adults say they read online reviews at least some of the time. that's according to a pew research study. but posting a review could put you at risk of being sued. ktm investigative correspondent anna werner has more. >> posting reviews is second nature for many people nowadays. when they have a bad situation with a business, up goes the news to share. what one man thought was a simple review turned into a year-long battle in court. >> i never thought i'd be sued over anything i write. there's no reason to say anything but the truth. >> reporter: but thomas lloyd of deland, florida, says telling the truth got him in trouble. his ordeal began when his 10-year-old poodle rembrandt
7:40 am
suddenly felt ill last year. lloyd rushed him to nearby deland animal hospital when they told him he needed emergency surgery for a ruptured spleen. i said, are you going to do it right now and they said yep. six hours later they told him to pick rembrandt up but was unable to find a surgeon. he took him too another clinic but they said it was too late and that he needed to be euthanized. >> if he'd have died on the operating table, i would have understood. >> reporter: afterward he posted a review on yep saying the staff had wasted six hours of rembrandt's life and destroyed whatever chance he may have had to live. our rembrandt deserved a better last day. weeks later deland animal hospital and veterinarian thomas macphail sued him for dema nation alleging lloyd's statements were false and
7:41 am
published maliciously and recklessly >> i'm finding that isn't always cheap to give an honest review because if the other person has money, they can drive you in the ground. >> reporter: when we spoke with him in may, lloyd owed $26,000 in legal bills, more than his yearly social security income, and he's not the only person who's been sued. last year a new york woman was sued by her doctor for $1 million for posting negative online reviews. a man in kansas was sued over a three-star tripadvisor review of a theme park, and a south carolina woman was sued by a restaurant she claims refused to honor a coupon. >> we're seeing a rise in individuals being sued for speaking out online. >> reporter: evan mascagni says many file lawsuits to intim consolidate.
7:42 am
cracking down on businesses who put gag clauses in their consumer contracts in violation of the consumer fairness contract. >> why is it important enough that the government needs to step in? >> online reviews has grown and people's reviews have grown. people have stories to tell and they're not able to get them out because they feel like they're going to be threatened. >> reporter: thomas lloyd stuck to his guns and countersued. earlier this year two former veterinarians from deland gave
7:43 am
sworn affidavits saying even though they lacked experience doing the emergency surgery lloyd's dog needed, vetd nairian macphail declined to do the surgery and instead left for vacation. after the animal hospital's attorney learned of the interview with lloyd, the case quickly settled. >> they shouldn't financially try to break somebody just because you don't like what you say. >> the deland animal hospital is under new ownership. veterinarian macphail is no locker working at the hospital. he did not respond to our repeated requests for comments or this story. >> i so feel for mr. lloyd. you can still see his pain. he's just speaking from what happened in his own experience. he didn't strike me as a malicious man. so what can you put in an online review? you can't say anything negative? >> stick to your own experience. don't say this pharmacy is the worst in history. >> isn't that what he did?
7:44 am

about 300 calories. that's the equivalent of about two chocolate chip cookies or about a cup of ice cream. samantha heller is a registered dietician at nyu langone health and she joins us now. >> good morning, how are you? >> i'm doing very well. everybody knows what they need to do. to lose weight and to be healthy. it's just really, really hard to do it. so what are the health benefits? >> i think people think they know what they need to do, but they might be surprised it can be easier than we do think. it doesn't have to be severe calorie restriction. we don't have to starve ourselves. we don't have to do extreme diets. what this study found in healthy or just slightly overweight people is that restricting as little as 300 calories, which is almost nothing, as you pointed out, can result in significant weight loss, about 16 pound over two years. not everybody is that patient. >> yeah. i have two weeks before the wedding. >> or the beach. >> but they had better cardio
8:35 am
metabolic profiles, better triglyceride levels, lower cholesterol, their bodies got healthier, their heart got healthier, what was interesting and i think and they didn't discuss this in the study is because people are saying how am i going to cut these calories today, i think they became more mindful eaters. >> it does make you accountable when you really pay attention. when you have to write it down or log it in some way, but first, what is visceral fat, what is that? >> that's the fat that accumulated deep under your belly. you can't see it. that's a more dangerous kind of fat. it increases inflammation and our risk for heart disease and liver disease. >> i thought visceral was something you could see like muffin top. very familiar. >> the pain of looking in the mirror. >> i always heard calories in, calories out. it doesn't matter hot the quality of the calorie. do you think that's true? >> i don't. i think that you can lose weight eating cupcakes but it's not healthy. >> really? >> if you eat fewer cupcakes
8:36 am
than you normally eat in terms of calories a day, you'll probably lose weight. >> so the quality of the calories matters. >> i want people to focus on being healthy and not being skinny. i think what we can take home from the study is when you're going to eat something, say, is this healthy for me today? how is this going to make me feel when i finish eating it? is this respecting this body trying to keep me alive all day? >> i fear the cupcake diet may be trending on twitter after this segment. we mentioned 300 calories a day, about two chocolate chip cookies. if you're not able to count in your head, how do people track the calories? >> look at the nutrition fact labels. >> it can match the serving side. >> sometimes that's tricky. >> i use an app called lose it that works reallyual. it's free and allows me to put in what i'm eating. i can even take a photo of the bar code and it immediately goes into the app and tells me the nutritional value and i can add it to my counter of calories and fat and carbs. >> the portion is what gets dicy
8:37 am
when we're using some of those apps. so it may underestimate your calorie intake, but 300 calories is a soda and a bag of chips or as you said, a couple cookies. really pretty easy to cut 300 calories a day. >> i use weight watchers now. i think there's many ways you can count your calories, but for those of us who don't use all these apps, do you have something that's quick and a good recommendation that you should cut x, y, and z. i hate the word cut, by the way, samantha. >> i won't use the word. >> i don't want to deprive myself. do you have recommendations on easy switches? >> instead of piling cheese on everything we eat, you know, once ounce of cheese is about 100 calories. i think it's illegal to only eat that much cheese. we eat a lot of cheese. cut back on your cheese consumption. don't put five slices on your sandwich. put one or two. measure your portions of rice and pasta. add a lot of nonstarchy vegetables, broccoli, kale, spinach, fill it out with that
8:38 am
and have healthy protein with that. be thoughtful. >> i have been living the 300 calorie a day cut life since i read about this because i was doing the space coverage and the astronauts were 165 pounds and exactly my heavier. >> is it working? >> i'll let you know in two years. samantha, thank you for being here. >> coming up, senators from across the aisle share how they found common ground to push through a historic bill to reform the criminal justice system. >> this is a cancer, this problem is a cancer on the soul of our country. >> ahead, we see the law in action as we follow a man who waited 16 years to be released from prison and be we started a warm up over the weekend for inland locations. you already noticed it sunday but for monday we keep it going. temperatures in the low 90s for

8:43 am
right to discuss the groundbreaking legislation. jeff, this was a bipartisan achievement, so it is possible. >> it sure is. >> it is possible. >> it sure is. good morning. for the first time in over a decade republicans and democrats came together to act on reforms to make our criminal justice system more fair. i was a proud co-sponsor of the first step achlkt for those who benefit, it's nothing less than a second chance. >> it's an overwhelming feeling and i'm just glad to be free. >> eric mall -- ba-- balcom has been released. >> i have to be thankful for the new memories i can make. >> new memories with his family.
8:44 am
>> god is good. >> including his dautdser tear ka. ironically she's a corrections officer in florida. there balcom wreunites with his mother who is suffering from'. at 23 he was sentenced to prison, the crime, selling 93.2 grams of crack. >> when they say life, somebody could have committed a crime in 2003 and been home before i was. >> in prison he said he rehabilitated himself, taking more than 60 courses working and even sugar as a suicide companion. he's free because of the first step act, a law that reverses the harsh sentence aimed at the war on drugs era of the 1980s and 1990s.
8:45 am
>> this problem is a cancer on the soul of our country. >> democratic new jersey senator cory booker and senator mike lee spent months on the bill. >> you're a strish senator from the state of utah and a former prosecutor, some would say an unlily candidate of this. why are you interested in this? >> interested in it not in spite of but because as a former prosecutor i saw a number of abuses of federal law. i saw a young man get sentenced to 5 years in prison for selling three dime bags of pot over a 72-hour period. this is wrong. the judge sentencing him at the time said it's wrong and only congress can fix the problem. >> senator bookier, take us behind? >> sometimes it matters. i'm sitting next to a guy from utah, not the most diverse state, that he's concerned that we have more african-americans
8:46 am
here. he and i have a real friendship and it made for a good foundation. >> a foundation that president trump's son-in-law jared kushner built upon. >> jared was a solid ally and one without whom we couldn't have gotten this past. >> was there a moment you thought it would all fall apart? >> in the midst of the kavanaugh hearings, i remember getting on the phone with jared and him and i being at an impasse and me being angry and having my back up and jared said, let's conference with lindsey graham and this is a moment when people on my side of the aisle were not happy with lindsey graham to put it mildly. i remember lindsey getting on the phone and being hard at jared saying we kent do this without cory, we need to keep
8:47 am
this coalition together. >> it's okay, it's okay, it's okay. >> what can you say to people like eric and others who have bee released under this program? >> there's an anguish in my communities. we live in a nation where our criminal justice system is still deeply biased against low income people, against minorities. this was a step. >> i just want to tell you that i'm sorry. >> a step that gave eric balcom the opportunity to finally apologize to his son. >> i'm sorry. i didn't mean to do you like that. >> for balcom, it's just another step on the long road to redemption. >> boy. >> sadly eric balcom's mother passed away a few weeks ago and
8:48 am
he was able to spend some sometime with his mother. >> nice to see him with his son too. >> what was difference at the federal level and is there any chance states get on board because most are in state penitentiaries. >> the interesting thing is some states have moved ahead. that provide a lot of impetus for government to move ahead. texas is another. a lot of people cam forward. they were building two or three a year. some wanted to have less recidivism and to use the faith community to get involved. for whatever reason they all came together. eight years later they closed a couple of prisons. recidivism is down, crime rate is down. we looked at that and thought, it works. i can't tell you what a partisan environment we were in in december and still for the congress to come together on an issue like this says something. >> very powerful reporting,
8:49 am
senator. >> and says that it's possible. there are so many issues we need to follow suit on. >> right. >> wonderful. >> before we go, see how a carp
