Are U.S. lawyers helping launder money?

On Sunday night, "60 Minutes" aired a report using hidden footage that raised questions about how far some American lawyers might be willing to go to help bring questionable funds into the U.S. The story showed what happened when an investigator for Global Witness, a London-based non-profit organization, went undercover 19 months ago. While posing as the representative of a phony African official, he met with more than a dozen New York law firms to get advice on moving tens of millions of dollars into the U.S. without the minister's name being revealed. “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Kroft joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss his report.
