7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." donald trump says he's now campaigning as a candidate who is unchained of the republican leaders abandoning him at an historic rate. a new survey shows a quarter of gop governors, senators, and represents will not endorse trump. >> and now the republican nominee is launching new attacks targg in a barrage of tweets, trump called republican defectors disloyal. claimed quote it is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and i can now fight for america the way i want to. major garrett is in panama city, florida, where trump also blasted hillary clinton at a campaign rally. major, good morning. >> good morning. donald trump was greeted by more than 1,000 enthusiastic supporters in panama city and
7:04 am
nothing about how speaker paul rye and and other republicans who have begun to distance themselves from trump's campaign. but the nominee did talk about something new. the possibility of losing the election. >> they don't give the support that we really need. >> okay, but i'm -- >> better off maybe without their support if you want to know the truth. >> reporter: donald trump dismissed the damage done by a divided party saying he doesn't need establishment's help. >> i wouldn't want to be in a fox hole with a lot of these people. that i can tell you. >> mccain is a brave man. >> by the way, including ryan. >> i got that. >> reporter: since the release of the now infamous "access hollywood" video. >> i can do anything. grab them by the [ bleep ] >> reporter: a new survey found of the 331 republican lawmakers, governors, senators and those in congress, more than a quarter are not endorsing trump. trump says that the 2005 tape is what pushed wavering republicans over the edge, that's just sad. >> if that's what it's going to take to lose an election that would be pretty sad. then i have to go back to my

7:06 am
and these trump supporters were glad the republican nominee didn't talk about paul ryan or his feud with several republicans, or even dredge up bill clinton's sordid sexual past. much happier that he focused on the wikileaks revelations, because those e-mails, they say, raise legitimate questions about hillary clinton's ethics. >> major, thank you. russia president vladimir putin said a short time ago that it does not matter who hacks hillary clinton's campaign e-mails. but putin says what the e-mails reveal is important. cl podesta claims that russian hackers targeted his account trying to influence the election. and he suggested that those hackers tipped off the donald trump advisers. wikileaks put out more of podista's e-mails this morning and nancy cordes was there as the campaign chairman spoke to reporters yesterday. she's with us now from white plains, new york. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. on this plane last night john podesta went point by point
7:07 am
have had with russian state actors, and with wikileaks. he argued it's all circumstantial evidence that point to some kind of understanding between trump, and the russian government. podesta said the theft of ten year's worth of e-mails from his gmail account is being investigated as part of the fbi's largest probe into hacks at the dnc. u.s. intelligence community said on friday it is confident those hacks were directed by the russian government. >> russian election, and their apparent attempt to influence -- on behalf of trump is i think should be of utmost concern to all americans. >> reporter: podesta noted that longtime trump confidant roger stone appeared to have advanced notice of the hack. tweeting in august, trust me, it will soon be the podesta's time in the barrel. and telling florida republicans
7:08 am
assange. the e-mails are a revealing and sometimes embarrassing window into the workings of a major campaign. in one, donna brazile who was working for cnn, appeared to slip the campaign a question clinton was to be asked at a cnn town hall during her primary against bernie sanders. in another, starbucks ceo and major clinton donor howard schultz called the campaign pale and lacking transparency that trust them to openly elect clinton. >> she doesn't know that the russians are doing the hacking. >> reporter: trump has brushed off accusations that his words and proposals seem to favor putin. >> i know nothing about the inner workings of russia. >> reporter: in north carolina tuesday president obama said trump sounded like a russian dictator when he threatened to jail clinton if he won. >> i frankly never thought i'd say the day when we had a major party candidate who would be promote
7:09 am
>> so he said he doesn't know why trump would be sympathetic to russia but he suggested it might be his business ties or his fascination with vladimir putin. in an interview on cnn this morning, russia's foreign minister called the notion that his country might be interfering in u.s. elections, quote, ridiculous and said there is no proof that russia is behind the hackings. >> thanks, nancy. "usa today" reports this morning on what it calls an extraordinary development in the presidential race. every republican governor and every lawmaker in congress. as of last night about one in four is refusing to endorse donald trump. the paper said the results have, quote, no precedent in a modern american political history. the washington bureau chief is here. she have three subjects. e-mails and the russians but donald trump and where this campaign is going. what is trump's strategy? based on his quarrel with
7:10 am
>> i think he has turned to a scorched earth strategy where he is going to turn out his core supporters. he is going to try to punish republicans that are not supporting him, and he's trying to make it as difficult as possible for a president clinton to govern after the election. >> do you see this as a turning point in the campaign? >> i do think so. i think you see it not only in how donald trump is behaving but also how hillary clinton is behaving. she is now campaigning with the idea of trying to bring as many senators, democratic candidates fo with her and she's preparing to campaign in states that she doesn't need. states like arizona, and georgia, utah might even be in play. >> putting money in those states? >> with the idea of helping down the ballot, just as donald trump is making it harder for republicans down the ballot, hillary clinton is now doing everything she can to make it easier to to to gain control of the house of the senate and perhaps even the house. on election day.
7:11 am
anti-establishment running against an unpopular congress. however, specifically taking on some of these lawmakers including the speaker of the house, the men he would have to work with hand in hand to get stuff done, does it complicate things for mike pence? >> i think it does. what is mike pence's brand, it's a very honorable guy, an evangelical britain who has generally not done negative campaigning in his own campaigns. who was very close with paul ryan. >> that's right. >> and had someone at a town hall say. donald trump loses we should have a revolution. he said don't talk like that. this puts pence in a difficult place and we know that he has ambitions down the road you know he might want to be running for president himself down the road. >> have you seen any evidence that the russians tipped off the trump campaign about the e-mails that were going to come out about hillary clinton's campaign? >> you know we don't have any hard evidence. we have some circumstantial evidence including a tweet that roger stone who is a longtime associate of donald trump said in august saying it would be
7:12 am
barrel with the release of e-mails and that is certainly what happened now in october. >> what does that mean to you, susan? >> i think one of the most serious things that has happened in this campaign that has gotten not as much attention has it deserves is efforts of russian state actors to affect our election, our politics. that is an extremely curious thing and raises the question in some voters' minds about the legitimacy of the election. >> the administration is saying it may consider some kind of retaliation. >> there is some thought they were holding off in the hopes of making a deal with russia on syria. that's fallen through so i think increasing signs that the severe steps against russia for what they think it's doing. >> thanks, susan. >> this year's final presidential debate is one week from today. you can see our coverage next wednesday at 6:00 p.m. pacific time right here on cbs. >> we're following an unfolding investigation into a small plane crash in connection a law enforcement source tells cbs news this morning that it may have been intentional. the fbi is investigating claims

7:14 am
lake, and sent all that water flooding the next town. flood issues are all over this region. yesterday, you see how far we were able to go in just a block or two. yesterday we could have went three blocks this way. >> in his truck, chief jimmy hunt and his crew of volunteer firefighters have ferried dozens of people to higher ground in lumberton, north carolina. the mass searches here are over. most people who were stranded in lumberton have been rescued. rescue crews are calling to a tip or call to check on a specific address. >> it's pretty horrific what we've seen out here. >> what's the worst thing? >> the worst that i've seen is the paralyzed patient, and the double amputee really got me hard because you know he was pretty much helpless. >> frustration is also starting to set in. on tuesday, north carolina
7:15 am
to obey evacuation orders and stop driving around barricades on flooded roads. >> we're not messing around. and we do not want to put people at risk. to save you once you make that decision. >> i lost my home, my car. >> reporter: joanie was stuck in her home in lumberton since saturday and said rescue choppers flew right overhead. >> i had tried -- i had sheets and towels screaming. >> i thought she was dead honestly. >> her son gene drove 16 hours from michigan to find her. she was standing on the porch with water up to her knees when he arrived. >> we got halfway there, heard a voice and i mean, gave us -- she was like let's get to her. nobody else is coming. >> 135,000 people here in north carolina still have no power. you can see it was power poles as well as power lines that got

7:17 am
matthew are now facing real catastrophe. >> reporter: eight days after hurricane matthew crushed homes and businesses here, its people are facing a new threat. this town has been completely destroyed. there are no homes that are left anywhere. they are now starting to see cholera, which is ravaging the population. this whole area is where people live. former local officials walked us through this seaside town. the folks here had no time, no chance, to save anything. any of their belongings at all. the town has one hospital and only two doctors to treat at least 85 people who contracted cholera. jean daniel is with doctors without borders. right now people are drinking the water in the river. drinking any water they can find, he says. that's how they're getting sick.
7:18 am
people are leaving this village, and heading to the haitian capital port-au-prince. the doctor there tells us she's worried about treating the growing number of cases. >> we are fighting with the cholera. but you know that sometimes we don't have the resources to do that. when we have too much people with cholera, it's very difficult. >> walking through the town we could smell the strong smell of bleach and that's important becaus's disinfect and prevent the spread of cholera. but it wasn't strong enough to mask the stench of death. now there's another looming crisis, and that is 80% of crops in some regions in haiti have been wiped out. which means the aid that is being flown in by the u.s. military is going to be even more crucial, gayle. >> oh, the news just keeps getting worse from haiti. thank you so much. the pope this morning called for an immediate cease-fire in syria

7:35 am
earlier about this recall? >> they should have figured it out earlier. it's rare and unfortunate to have a recall that doesn't work. if you recall a product it should work and that is massive failure on the part of samsung. they should have had more people investigate it at the beginning and should not have gone to market so quickly. there are a lot of competitive pressures in the phone industry and they moved too fast and shouldn't have done that. >> the interesting thing to me batteries are the key to electric cars and so much in terms of smartphones. is there one company, the manufacturer of these batteries do ty thousands of places? >> lots of different places and samsung thought it was one specific subsidiary that made the batteries and taking batteries from different subsidiaries and putting them in the same phone so it's not an isolated problem. >> how do you repair your brand? >> you have to offer very generous refunds and be very open and very clear and they have to not have this happen

? good morning to our viewers in the west. it is wednesday, october 12th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including early voting now under way in more states. a look at whether donald trump's process could damage our democracy, but, first, here is today's eye opener at 8:00. >> despite that tweet storm, the nominee did talk about something new, the possibility of losing the election. >> what is trump's strategy? >> he has turned to a score to earth strategy, where he tries to punish republicans who are not supporting him and make it as difficult as possible for a president clinton to govern.
8:01 am
all that power is going to take some time. >> the united states military has flown in tons of aid into haiti and for some of those folks, these supplies can't come fast enough. >> hello, everybody. hey! >> president obama taking part in an espn town hall on issues of race, sports and achievement. >> we all get knocked down in life. the question is how do you respond? >> hillary clinton campaigned in florida today with al gore. >> for those of you who are remember the election of 2000 and what happened here in florida and across the country. >> you're making al gore go back to florida? that's so cruel. that's like making joe frazier go back to manila. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. 27 days before the election,
8:02 am
battle on two fronts against hillary clinton and his fellow republicans. trump lashed out yesterday at house speaker paul ryan, and other republicans. they are distancing themselves from him after 2005 video showed trump making sexually aggressive comments about women. >> donald trump tweeted yesterday, quote, it is so nice that the shackles have been taken off of me and i can now fight for america the way i want to. last night, trump said the shackles were the weak and ineffective people within the party and that if the 2005 video pushed wavering republicans over the edge, that's just sad. >> donald trump didn't mention paul ryan last night at arally in florida, but accused the clintons of cashing in during the haiti earthquake in 2010. he cited e-mails obtained by the republican national committee through the freedom of information act request. they show the state department funneled requests from friends of bill clinton referred to as fobs or wjcbips using his
8:03 am
new york, looking at what the e-mails do not show. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. these requests that trump is referring to came from clinton acquaint acquaintances, clinton foundation donors who wanted to help with the relief work in haiti after that devastating earthquake back in 2010. in one exchange, for example, between the clinton foundation director and the state department, the state department official wrote i need you to flag when people are friends of wjc, william jefferson clinton. that same official wrote to one of the heads of u.s. aid, row londo is a close friend of the secretary and former president. he's wanting to get folks into haiti to work on electrical issues. the state department official wrote in another e-mail, is this an fob? if not, the person should go to cidi.org. the teams here are overwhelmed. now, these e-mails do not show whether the offers of help were
8:04 am
they also don't show that the offers were made with any financial motives as trump had suggested and it is important to point out that back in 2010, it was well documented that the clinton foundation was funneling offers to help haiti to the state department, which was overwhelmed. bill clinton was the united nations special representative for haiti and coordinated the relief efforts there and former president george w. bush was also heavily involved in relief work in haiti. but it is unclear whether his friends consideration because those e-mails weren't requested by the republican national committee. >> nancy, thanks. in iowa yesterday, republican running mate mike pence had to shut down a supporter who really wants them to win. >> if hillary clinton gets in, i myself, i'm ready for a revolution, because we can't have her in. >> yeah, you know, don't -- >> i'm just saying -- >> the woman said she is very worried about voter fraud.
8:05 am
to be involved in the election process. if you are concerned about voter integrity and you haven't signed up to be a poll watcher, to volunteer at a polling place, to be a part of the integrity of that process, then you need to do it. >> donald trump repeatedly suggested that the election process is rigged. >> what a rigged deal. i tell you, we're in such a rigged -- it is terrible. you got to watch your polling booths because i hear too many certain areas. so go and vote and go check out areas. because a lot of bad things happen. we have to make sure that this election is not stolen from us. >> trump has gone further encouraging his supporters to observe voters at the polls. 39 states have voter challenger laws. they give private citizens the right to challenge the eligibility of voters in person on election day. contributing editor alex wagner
8:06 am
called scare the vote, looks into trump's claims and the lasting effects it could have. welcome. >> thanks. always good to see you guys. >> you say voter fraud is nearly zero percent in the united states, yet donald trump keeps raising it over and over and the effects could be devastating to this country. >> i think we talk a lot about what the long-term effects of 2016 will be in the american public, right? and certainly there say pervasive sense that a lot of our systems arero institutions need overhaul. but the notion that the basic act of democracy, casting a vote, is no longer fair, and that our elections in some ways are no longer free, which is a suggestion we have been hearing from donald trump on the campaign trail of late, the long-term and even medium term effect on our democracy could be profound. this is not a position that america, which is largely seen as a model democracy around the world -- >> profound how, do you think? >> i think i talk to election
8:07 am
world, talk to folks at the u.n. and they say this kind of rhetoric we're hearing from donald trump about election is rigged, in advance of the election, that is rhetoric you hear from emerging and weak democracies. this is -- these tactics and this is the front page of the new york times, ironman rhetoric, this is what we hear from leaders like robert mugabe of zimbabwe. this is not the norm in terms of american politics nor is the suggestion and the solicitation online that the trump campaign citizens out to the polls to watch and see what other fellow americans are -- >> on the other side too, all the stories that the russians are trying to influence elections. >> that, i think, absolutely is adding to this climate of insecurity and fear. however, the evidence is what it is. one in 15 million cases of voter fraud is statistically zero it doesn't exist as a percentage of the american votes cast. does that mean our system is
8:08 am
increase voter registration and turn out and all the rest? >> or does it mean something has changed? >> i think that the question of cyberwarfare and cybermonitorin issue than necessarily what donald trump is calling for. private citizens can't decipher monitoring in person. >> it is heating up as numbers are dropping too. >> sure. that, i think is not a coincidence, right? if things aren't going your way, challenge the results. >> two interesting things too, one, it is easier to vote in and we'll have as much as 40% of the vote will be early. and, in fact, many people believe that florida, north carolina, maybe nevada, ohio, could be decided even before the election. on the flip side, republicans for the last six years have made it harder to vote in person. we now have 34 states that require voters to show some form of identification at the polls. there are so many restrictions already in place to make sure the vote is fair. >> right. and i think it is worth noting
8:09 am
conservative legislatures that have moved for these voter i.d. laws, republicans, this is being reported in politico today, republican elected officials and former officials are saying this rhetoric about the system being rigged is dangerous. there are people on both sides of the aisle that recognize the tenor in american politics that is being driven in this particular moment. not a good one in the long-term. >> and yet -- >> what will be the long-term effect, do you think? >> if you have a section of one of our two major political parties that no longer believes it matters, or americans turn out to vote, the implications for that are profound. if you have people not participating in the democratic process, how do you have a representative democracy? >> i think how it is going to play out. i can challenge anybody who is voting, what are my qualifications? >> we don't want voters intimidated at the polls. that's what the challenger laws alou. that's not a good -- that's not a good process, not good activity on election day. >> thanks, alex. >> hope for no hanging chads.

balancing his work and family life at an espn town hall last night. the president said it is an issue that he and michelle wrestle with. >> my favorite sound bite from michelle about this is, i remember right after malia was born, very early on, a friend of mine called to see if i wanted to play basketball and i said, no, man, i can't, i got to baby sit malia. and so i hung up the she turned to me and said, you know what, if it is your own child, it is not baby-sitting. so i would say to the soon to be dads here, just understanding the level of responsibility and commitment that is required and the things that you have to cut out because a lot of moms are
8:11 am
>> mr. obama said he knows that when he looks back on his life, it is not the political accomplishments that will stand out, what he will remember is, quote, holding hands with my daughters, taking them down it a park. >> don't you like him pointing that out, though. it is not your own child when you're baby-sitting. you have to send that note to a lot of dads from time to time. >> but it is true that in the end -- >> that will stand out. >> you remember the personal and you remember your family. >> it is good to hear a man talking about sort of what are these universal values that should >> a single tweet began an online movement in response to the tape featuring donald trump's comments. ahead, how the #notokay prompted a huge number of women to share

>> reporter: this is high tech lynching. >> reporter: hill had to defend her account. how does she think the response to the trump controversy compares? >> it's a difference. i don't believe that would have happened in 1991. >> reporter: you don't think there would have been this kind of outcry? >> absolutely not. i think in 1991, people were really not accustomed to hearing about sexual harassment and they certainly weren't accustomed to hearing that it was a problem. >> reporter: the next step, she effects on trump and his presidential candidacy. >> what i think should have been the focus of the conversation is the harm that sexual harassment causes to the victims, and how we are going to ever prevent it, if we don't value the lives of women. >> reporter: women who responded to kelly oxford by the tens of thousands. >> i was happy that women were
8:20 am
upset at the same time that there were so many women that basically -- basically every woman has a story like this. >> this is a powerful moment for us, to understand that and to think about, okay, what do we do next to make sure this doesn't happen to another generation? >> reporter: of course, there was no twitter in 1991 but hill, who is now a professor, says over the year, she has gotten thousands of letters and we were talking about the fact that if you read these on twitter, can only read them for so long. you can read only so many letters before you have to stop. >> she has a powerful question at the end of your piece. what do we know and prevent it from happening? so many focus on the guy and the effect it has to the women. >> it's an opportunity to keep the conversation going. >> tim tebow has made his much-anticipated debut in the fall league playing baseball. now what happened in the stands. we will be right back. see me.
