server while she was secretary of state. jeff pegues is outside of fbi headquarters in washington. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. law enforcement sources say the fbi is trying to get the technology infrastructure in place to sort through these thousands of new e-mails that they want to review. we are told that the e-mails were discovered earlier this month, but fbi doctor james comey said he didn't find out about them until last sd cbs news has learned that fbi director james comey have been call members of congress who demanded he release more information about the review of the new e-mails. comey is under fire for making the disclosure 11 days before the plex. >> there is no way for the public to make an informed judgment. >> reporter: adam shift says friday's announcement broke agency protocol. >> this violates the department
7:05 am
speaking about open or closed investigations, but also the d.o.j. policy about speaking about an investigation this close to an election. >> reporter: in a letter addressed to the fbi director on sunday, democratic senator harry reid accused comey of partisan actions and alleged he may have broken the law by violating the hatch act that bans most federal and some other government employees from participating in political activities that could help or on hurt a partisan group or candida i investigators seized the laptop belonging to long time clinton aid huma abedin and estranged husband anthony weiner into a separate probe into weiner's alleged sexual communication with underaged girl and comey sent a vagary worded to congress on friday saying he did not know whether or not this material may be significant. cbs news has learned that the
7:06 am
officials debated whether they would be accused of trying to manipulate the election by hiding the renewed investigation with evidence was found. officials ultimately concluded that the letter was the most credible approach after comey alleged to inform congress if anything else came up with clinton's use of private e-mail server. >> we would look at any >> we commend the fbi to keep their word. >> reporter: over the weekend vice presidential candidate mike pence praised comey's decision. >> what the decision this week showed even 11 days before an election no one is above the law. >> reporter: law enforcement sources say that abedin is cooperating and seems surprised that the e-mails were on a laptop. gayle? >> thank you, jeff. 71% in our latest cbs news battlegrond tracker poll say
7:07 am
not change their vote. some of those people in 13 battleground states have already voted. just 5% of democrats say it makes them less likely to vote for hillary clinton. nancy cordes has clinton's response to the fbi letter. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, with so many americans voting right now, the clinton camp didn't have time to dwell on what they saw as an unfair move by the fbi. instead, they are moving aggressively to shape public opinion on this, calling on the fbi to the director to explain himself with the assumption that be offense. >> it's pretty strange to put something like that out this with such little information right before an election. >> reporter: clinton came down hard this weekend on comey's move. >> it's unprecedented and it is deeply troubling. >> reporter: her campaign followed that up with a facebook video. >> the more information has come out the more overblown this all seems. >> it's already been viewed more
7:08 am
and outraged as we are. >> are any of your going to be distracted. >> tim kaine kaine argued that outrage was helping the campaign. >> it is kind of revved up enthusiasm. a little bit of -- a little bit of righteous indignation and righteous anger. it's revved it up a about. >> reporter: huma abedin was clinton's longest serve aide and stayed in new york over the new york and anthony weiner in august. >> huma. they just found a lot of them. we never thought we were going to say thank you to anthony weiner. >> reporter: campaign chairman john podesta said no changes to abedin's duties in these final eight days. >> shes played a central and vital role in this campaign and she continues to do that. >> reporter: at a church in ft. lauderdale, clinton said the bible had taught her about ri resilience. >> no matter what is thrown our way, we are not going to back
7:09 am
the clinton camp hope right now is the fact that so many americans, more than 20 million, had already voted before the fbi took this step. norah, the campaign has been careful to use words like puzzling and confusing to describe comey's move and trump lashed out at clinton over the e-mail discovery. major garrett is covering the trump campaign and has more information. >> reporter: good morning. republicans in battleground states tell me they can feel the ground shifting and this race tightening significantly.
7:10 am
but they say clinton's e-mail woes are rallying trump who is hitting these notes with everything he's got. >> now the fbi has found, you're not going to believe this one. this just happened. another 650,000 e-mails. >> reporter: donald trump placed hillary clinton's ongoing e-mail scandal at the center of his stump speech sunday. >> i think that's called motherlode. i think they found them all. >> reporter: delighted. >> the department of justice is fighting the fbi, that's because the department of justice is trying so hard to protect hillary clinton. >> reporter: prior to friday's discovery, the fbi was a favorite trump boogie man. part of a rigged beltway culture
7:11 am
corrupted the director of the fbi. what has happened with the fbi is so sad. do they make a deal where everybody protects each other in washington? maybe that's it? i really believe? >> reporter: the agency is now back on trump's good side. >> what happened today, starting with the fbi, may be the system will become a little less rigged. beauti on voters' anger with clinton to help win over skeptical republicans and build on his enthusiasm edge. the latest cbs news poll shows a majority of trump supporters in north carolina and arizona are more enthusiastic than in previous election. less than 40% of clinton supporters feel the same way. >> we are leading numerous national polls and those polls are all before the bombshell of corruption.
7:12 am
trump continued warning about nonexistent voter fraud repeated his promise to bring back waterboarding and said clinton lacks immigration policy could allow 650 million people to sneak into america in just one week. it's why even newly optimistic republicans fear trump's pension for veering off script could undercut his recent surge in momentum. cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is in washington. good morning charlie. >> what impact and what might be discovered that could make this a game-changer? >> well, i'm still trying to handle this first discovery. i can't imagine what might be discovered. we used to have october surprises. it was a single day in october. now the entire month is a surprise. i think, though, the change, of course, is the conversation all about hillary clinton and a damaging thing for hillary clinton, and something that encourages the campaign to
7:13 am
people's skepticism or concerns about it, which is why it's really interesting whether they will continue going after comey which is basically all they can do or whether they pivot. but the question is does it move anything? and, you know, our polling and other polling shows that on account surprises aren't what they used to be because everybody sorts new information about their existing partisanship. a lot of partisan sorting and not a lot of people sloshing between the two candidates and 22 million or so votes have the activity on saturday suggested that early turnout among democrats you might expect a little dampening after this news coming hasn't happened so we will see how it plays out the last couple of days. but the real thing to watch is the republicans who were skeptical about trump that they have been worried about on the republican side, does it change any of those minds and that is what i'm looking for. >> did mr. comey have any other options?
7:14 am
have faced other accusations. any other way to handle this? >> i don't know. we don't know exactly what he has and seems to be confusing. you're right. imagine if nothing had been said and it came out after the election. it seemed like this was designed in a way to make nobody happy no matter what the election outcome is people are going to look to the fbi and have complaints. it is curious this idea of if the warrant had not been issued when he put outis announcement and, therefore, they hadn't looked at the e-mails or -- it seems mentioning that might have lowered some of the speculation. of course, they might have looked at the e-mails without a warrant. there is no evidence of that. i guess it's quite confusing why there was not something to kind of keep everybody from wildly speculating because a lot of speculation and we see donald trump saying the only reason they did this is because they found some huge bombshell in the new cache of e-mails. >> you mentioned that more than
7:15 am
voted in the early votes so there is some question about how much this may influence the final outcome. what have we learned from those early vote numbers? >> well, we find that -- you know, it depends on the different states how it's working. there is -- it's up in -- north carolina, for example, democrats are up but they are down from where they were in '12. we know there a lot of early voting going on. it will change in its composition. so we -- we don't really have a strong signal froar they are up in the early voting compared to republicans. >> but down from '12 and they lost in '12. >> right but you have the composition the electorate is different and north carolina voting rules and florida is different. comparisons to '12 you have to be careful about them. >> exactly. thanks, john. in our next hour, donald trump's campaign manager kellyanne conway will be here in studio 57 and we will get her candidate's latest reaction to the fbi letter ahead on "cbs this morning."

a significant failure to respond by our police department. there is no doubt about it. >> reporter: the victim blaming would be one answer. the other answer, i'll go back to it, is protecting the football team, protecting that brand. >> i don't believe that was at all the reason. i really think that it was probably feeling -- i don't know what was said, if they did talk to them. i don't know. >> reporter: they did talk to the victim. there is no question. there was -- it's a detailed police report. >> right. there was a title i was opened up, we opened up that up and that is when i learned about it. and, at that time, we took the appropriate actions and eventually he was found responsible. >> reporter: eventually, he was. but in 2014, travon armstead was all big 12 tight end. >> that th-- that would be true >> reporter: patty crawford has years of investigating sexual assaults but nothing she said prepared her for baylor. in your mind, who is

8:00 am
? it is monday, october 31st, 2016. you know what that means? happy halloween! welcome back to "cbs this morning.? there is more real news ahead, including the fbi director criticized for telling congress about more e-mails possibly linked to hillary clinton. see hoit candidates say about him. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> the e-mails were discovered earlier this month, but james comey said he didn't find out about them until last thursday. >> the clinton camp is moving aggressively to shape public opinion on this and calling on the fbi director to explain himself. >> hillary clinton's new fbi woes are rallying skeptical republicans to trump who are trying to hit these notes with everything he has got. >> what might be discovered that could make this a game-changer?
8:01 am
this first discovery. i can't imagine what might be discovered. we used to have october surprises. it was a single day in october. now the entire month is a surprise. two members of his own family shot law enforcement officers and then posted on social media warning of more random attacks. it ended right here on this county road in rural oklahoma where we are this morning. italy is assessing earthquake that hit the region. >> take a look how these dancers at a charlotte, north carolina hornets game got down during intermission. ? >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. fbi investigators have a search
8:02 am
e-mails that may have passed through hillary clinton's private servers. they are on a laptop shared by long time aide huma abedin and her estranged husband anthony weiner. fbi director james comey on friday sent congress a vaguely worded letter, saying he didn't know if the e-mails may be significant. >> former attorney general eric holder, along with nearly 100 former justice departments officials on both sides of the aisle said they were astonished and perplexed by comey's decision. since july, when comey recommended no criminal chargesg state, clinton and donald trump have had different reactions to the e-mail server investigation. >> although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a
8:03 am
ever that we have seen that our system is absolutely, totally rigged. >> we did not find evidence sufficient to establish that she knew she was sending classified information beyond a reasonable doubt. >> look at what he said when he testified before congress. because when he did, he clarified much of what he had said in his press conference and i appreciated that. >> but he said it was sloppy. >> no. he did not. >> hillary clinton's handling of the top secret information was >> yeah, that's another way of trying to express the same concept. >> the biggest rigging of what has happened with the fbi and the justice department with respect to hillary clinton because she is so guilty. >> is there not a fair basis to say we did it in any way that was honest or independent. >> it was revealed by the fbi director that thousands of more e-mails have been discovered on a laptop that was shared by her top aide huma abedin and her
8:04 am
i thought. >> voters deserve to get full and complete facts, and so we have called on director comey to explain everything right away, put it all out on the table. right? >> the fbi may have to check thousands of e-mails so the review is expected to run past election day. donald trump's campaign manager is just arriving here at the cbs broadcast center. we will talk to kellyanne conway. she is outde about the fbi e-mail probe and what else could happen. there she is in the last eight days of the campaign.
8:05 am
kellyanne conway, donald trump's campaign manager is joining us at the table. welcome. >> thank you. >> donald trump said, yesterday, this is bigger than watergate. do you all know something we don't know and how could he know that when the fbi is saying we don't know what is in the
8:06 am
explosive and i think it reminds people what their hess stations about hillary clinton are in the first place. even for undecided voters, they are quite decided and known her for decades. >> how can it be explosive when we don't know what is in it yet? >> even the democrats are calling explosive and unprecedented. >> saying the fact he made this announcement. >> but, look. sitting on information like that also could have affected the election so i think comey was an impossible spot. i'm reading the reports this morning st suggest that others in the fbi knew about it for quite a while and just told jim comey so he was compelled to come forward and say -- >> the hillary clinton campaign is asking them to reveal everything. do you agree with that? >> i think the investigations take time. i don't think anybody should force their hand and i think the clinton campaign is asking the fbi to do something they know
8:07 am
election next week is rush through the normal channels. there are 650,000 e-mails we keep reading in the published reports. >> on anthony weiner's laptop. >> that is a lot of e-mails to sift through. >> if the fbi says we did not go through this by election day that is okay with you? >> we hear hillary clinton having boos at one of her rallies yesterday. maybe asking the wrong candidate all along are you inciting anger and violence at your rallies? are al >> if they find out in fact, there is nothing there and go through it before the election day you want them to announce. we looked at all of these things and there is nothing there, we maintain our original judgment? >> if they want, they can say that, i guess. the damage is done. remember. let's go back to the beginning because hillary clinton set up a home private server that you're not allowed to do and her people
8:08 am
she put on national security risks and receiving e-mails from the president of the united states on a private server who then president obama apparently happened to notice and told someone is this a private e-mail? this woman has imperiled our national security and what good reason? for her petty personal political gain. she is just unqualified and unfit to be president. that simple. >> let me ask you about the democratic senator harry reid. he has written a letter highly critical as you know of what the fbi director has done. he says that comey also has explosive information about close ties and coordination advisers and the russian government. would you encourage the fbi to release information about that? >> if they want to. but we are listening to harry reid, put him under oath and see if he'll say the same thing. this is the same man who said mitt romney was hiding things in his tax returns. he gives all kinds of allegations about people and people repeat them without evidence and i think it's really dangerous.
8:09 am
some former official in the campaign who may have had some contact with the russian government? >> charlie, i have zero knowledge except what i read in the press like we all do. >> so his claims make no sense to me. >>? >> they make no sense and i think a desperate attempt i saw by the democrats over the weekend. look. a woman who reported last week hillary clinton spent tens of thousands of dollars on polling and focus groups two years before the election to find out what sheel rest of us and no way they have a plan b in place. they were told last week the race is over and no path for trump and wait out the clock. look at last week her poll ratings evaporating before some of the swing states before fbi comey made his new revelation and i don't think they were ready for the race to take this turn again. >> let's talk about our battleground tracker poll says people have already voted and this new revelation will not change their minds. >> not 71% have voted. 71% say they won't change their
8:10 am
>> thank you, norah. will this change how y'all campaign, these remaining eight days? >> no. >> changing your strategy? >> no, it hasn't changed the strategy since it was announced. it was around 1:00 or 2:00 p.m. on friday. trump made other stops. he mentions it at the beginning and talks about obamacare and isis and patriotism. the reason he does that this has to go on independent of us and also obamacare is a huge boiling issue now. it's people are opening up their computers and noticing their premiums are exploding out of control. we don't want americans to go through another four, eight years where they are deciding between paying the rent, paying for food or paying for these explosive obamacare premiums. >> can you turn around pennsylvania? she has an eight-point -- >> we don't see it that way. >> you disagree with the polling numbers?
8:11 am
race. a state where donald trump's message, renegotiating bad trade deals and creating 25 million jobs over ten years unleashing energy investment, and also just repealing -- replacing obamacare, including getting rid of obamacare? >> obamacare is your issue? >> a huge issue. it's a signature issue that helped republicans win and 2013 we nominated romney care which was a political cover for obamacare. but people are getting those premium increases now. >> new york magazine said you are a mother of four children and he responded how you respond would with your children. what do you say to that? >> i love the picture, for once. so many bad ones out of there. that is not a fair relationship with mr. trump and our relationship. we have a great working relationship. i respect him and it's his campaign, gayle, and it's his
8:12 am
voice and his choice. i love the fact it took donald trump to elevate the first female in history to be a campaign manager. >> do your mothering skills come into play? >> 24/7 for every situation, not just donald trump. >> eight more days. former drug user is challenging his experience on the streets to help his juice business thrive. >> the addict in me is what i bring to this operation. this relentless pursuit of greatness and pure authentic self-expression. >> ahead, how focusing on wellness for everybody transformed his life. you're watching "cbs this morning."
