but got scared off. >> and i was on the way to winning that race until usain bolt ran faster than me. >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." president trump says it's time for congress to vote on replacing obamacare. but the newest plan appears to be on the brink of collapse. it still does not have enough republican support to pass in the house. >> the house will vote today on a compromised budget. the president plans to sign it but he's not happy on concessions to democrats. he tweeted yesterday that a good shutdown of the government would force the senate to pass a better budget for next year. major garrett is at the white house where the president is working to save the health care bill. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the white house is scrambling, and president trump is meeting right now with two prominent house republicans now opposed to the latest version of the house
bill to repeal and replace obamacare. this hastily arranged meeting between the president and congressman fred upton of michigan and billy long of missouri is designed to find a way to protect coverage for pre-existing conditions without losing conservatives who have recently come on to the bill. >> this is what winning looks like. >> reporter: president trump cut a deal with congressional democrats to keep the government open and running until the end of september. he landed more defense spending, but he didn't fund the wall or cut nearly as much as he wanted. our country needs a good shutdown in september to fix mess, the president wrote on twitter. his way of protesting the concessions. >> i don't think threatening a shutdown is good for america. >> reporter: democrats sounded the alarm. >> i've been through a couple of shutdowns. >> reporter: office of management and budget director mick mulvaney was asked what a good shutdown would look like. the 2013 shutdown reportedly cost taxpayers $24 billion. >> it would be one that fixes this town.
one that drives the message back home to people that it really was as broken as they thought that it was when they voted for donald trump. >> reporter: on health care, the president is impatient for a win. >> how is health care coming, folks? >> reporter: details no longer elude house republicans, but votes still do. >> i think it's time now, right? right? they know it's time. >> reporter: the latest cbs news count shows the revised bill teetering on the edge. yesterday republicans lost the vote of influential moderate congressman fred upton, who said the new changes to the bill would torpedo protection for those with pre-existing conditions. >> we were brought up to believe that we live in the greatest country in the world. >> reporter: late-night comedian jimmy kimmel drew attention to that topic during an emotional monologue about his son who was born with a heart defect. >> if your baby is going to die and doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make. i think that's something whether you're a republican or a democrat or something else, we all agree on that, right?
i mean we do. >> reporter: kimmel's plea caught the eye of former president obama who tweeted that's exactly why we fought so hard for the aca. the fate of the affordable care act now appears to hinge on whether coverage for pre-existing conditions will be a federal guarantee or a state option. >> yeah, many people touched by jimmy's emotional plea the other night. thank you very much, major. president trump and russian president vladimir putin say they have agreed to work towards brokering a cease-fire in syria. they spoke on the phone yesterday for the first time since the u.s. launched a missile strike against a syrian air base. president trump agreed to have a u.s. representative attend talks that russia is leading on the civil war. the leaders plan to have their first face-to-face meeting in germany this july. the fbi director just arrived on capitol hill to testify before the senate judiciary committee. james comey is expected to be asked about the fbi investigation into the trump campaign's possible russia ties.
comey's testimony comes as congress prepares for potentially explosive hearing next week with former acting attorney general sally yates. she previously sounded the alarm about ousted national security advisor mike flynn. jeff pegues is on capitol hill. >> reporter: good morning. director comey returns to capitol hill with this fbi counter intelligence investigation just under ten months old, but there is another key figure in this investigation who will testify next monday. as mentioned, that is former acting attorney general sally yates, who believed that former national security advisor michael flynn was compromised when he worked in the white house in january and early february. flynn was fired after misleading the vice president after his contacts with russian ambassador sergey kislyak. members of congress will want to know why the white house waited more than two weeks to fire flynn. yates was originally supposed to testify in march, but that hearing was abruptly cancelled by then committee chairman devin
nun nunes. just yesterday members of the senate intelligence committee boarded buses to cia headquarters in langley, virginia, where they were briefed on sensitive information about russian interference, but all eyes here today on director comey as this hearing gets under way. he is known, as you know, for surprises. the last time he testified in open hearing here on capitol hill, he sent shock waves. >> all right, thank you, jeff. hillary clinton says the fbi's director's reopening of her e-mail investigation is one reason why she was not elected president. the former democratic candidate spoke yesterday at a women's rights conference. president trump responded on twitter that comey was, quote, the best thing that ever happened to hillary clinton. he also claimed the trump/russia story was an excuse used by the democrats was justification for losing the election. nancy cordes looks at clinton's latest reaction. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. clinton said she took some personal responsibility for her loss, but she didn't really
elaborate on what she or her campaign could have done better. she did go into detail about the other factors she says led to her defeat. >> i highly recommend long walks in the woods. it is far healthier than screaming at your television set. >> reporter: clinton did not reflect on her failed bid at a gala celebrating planned parenthood. >> you know, if the election had been on october 27th, i'd be your president. >> reporter: but earlier in the day she spoke candidly saying her victory was derailed by forces out of her control. >> it wasn't a perfect campaign. there is no such thing. but i was on the way to winning until a combination of jim comey's letter on october 28th and russian wikileaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off. >> reporter: clinton also found fault in the presidential debates, which she says focused too much on personality. >> i was waiting for the moment
when one of the people asking the questions would have said, well, so how exactly how are you going to create more jobs? right? i mean i thought, you know, i thought at some moment that would happen. >> reporter: but that moment did happen more than once. >> please explain to me why you believe that your plan will create more jobs and growth for this country and your opponent's plan will not. >> reporter: the former secretary of state mocked the man who beat her for attempting international diplomacy via twitter. >> negotiations are critical, but they have to be part of a broader strategy, not just thrown out on a tweet some morning that, hey, let's get together and see if we can't get along. maybe we can, you know, come up with some sort of a deal. that doesn't work. >> clinton did say she supports president trump's decision to launch air strikes in syria last month, but beyond that she had
little praise and even described herself, gayle, as part of the resistance movement that has erupted in reaction to his presidency. >> all right, thank you very much, nancy. more to come from hillary clinton, it seems. towns and highways are under way in missouri this morning. the meramec river crested overnight. michelle miller is in eureka outside of st. louis. michelle, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. yesterday at this time those pumps at this gas station stood drier dry, but after the meramec river crested breaking a record by more than half a foot, they're standing in several inches of water and there's growing concern of even more flooding as there are four more inches of rain forecast today. a bird's-eye view shows the extent of the devastating floods across the state of missouri. streets seem to disappear into the murky waters. >> you all are going to have to decide which side of the river you want to be on.
>> reporter: more than 200 roads remain closed, including large parts of interstate 44, seen here submerged under feet of water. this railroad bridge swallowed up by the rising meramec river collects passing debris instead of providing passage for trains. the st. louis county police department looks like it lives on its own island. >> it is so going to hit the bridge. >> reporter: this home was seen floating down the current river, eventually slamming into a bridge. in downtown eureka, just outside of st. louis, community members are coming together to save their city. >> this is our community. i live in eureka, i've been out here since i was 13 years old. i know all these people. we want to keep this community up and running. >> reporter: volunteers have been working with the national guard and even the coast guard to help fill and distribute sandbags. so all of these sandbags and all of this plastic are keeping the water out of these businesses? >> they are minimizing the water
intrusion where the pumps on the other side keep the water from getting up to the level behind it. >> reporter: about ten miles away in fenton, darryl davidson is hoping the fortress of sandbags surrounding his mother's home will keep the water away. >> if the river wins, the river wins. we're going to try our best not to let it win this year like it did last year. >> reporter: about 16 months ago, a rare december storm swept through these same river towns causing damage to hundreds of homes. this system is expected to have a ripple effect throughout the rest of the country with severe weather in both texas and louisiana tonight. >> michelle, thank you. the justice department has closed its investigation into a deadly louisiana police shooting. it decided not to bring any charges against two officers. alton sterling's death last summer was captured on cell phone and store surveillance video. >> the controversial shooting triggered weeks of protest in baton rouge. police arrested nearly 200 people. sterling's family is upset the justice department did not tell them the officers won't be
charged before the news became public. david begnaud is in baton rouge outside the convenience store where sterling was killed. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we've just found out that louisiana's governor has formally been notified that the department of justice will make an announcement in the alton sterling case today. cbs news is reporting the announcement will be that no federal charges will be filed against the two baton rouge police officers who were involved in the death of sterling right in that handicapped spot in front of the door here in front of the triple s mart. after sterling died it set off a series of protests that led to the shooting death of police officers in dallas and baton rouge. two baton rouge police officers will not face federal civil rights charges in the death of alton sterling last july 5th. a dispatcher sent officers blane salamoni and howie lake to the triple s convenience store. someone said there was a man with a gun. the officers tased, tackled and
shot alton sterling while he appeared to be on his back. his autopsy showed multiple gunshot wounds to the back and chest. a detective reported officers saw a gun in his front pants pocket and that he was reaching for it. salamoni and lake were put on administrative leave. dozens of peaceful protesters held a vigil tuesday outside the triple s. >> they promised our family that they would let us know. >> reporter: the sorrow has not ended for sterling's family. >> it hurt, it hurt. it hurts so bad. >> reporter: sandra sterling wanted federal intervention after her nephew's killing. >> it's crazy. it's like we waited all this time for nothing. >> an attorney for the sterling family told cbs news they have not been informed by the justice department of any decision or announcement. >> we got "the new york times" and "the washington post" releasing statements and nobody talked to the governor, nobody talked to the mayor.
>> reporter: congressman cedric richmond who represents baton rouge tweeted last night that the leak completely undermines of the justice department. >> no matter what the decision is, the process and the protocols and the way they have handsed this is just really terrible. >> reporter: so the story doesn't end with the fact no federal charges will be filed. louisiana's attorney general will now get the case and he will decide whether the officers should be charged criminally. >> thank you, david. the texas police officer accused of shooting and killing a 15-year-old boy has been fired. the police chief says officer roy oliver violated several policies the night that he shot high school freshman jordan edwards with a rifle. edwards was in a car leaving a party with his two brothers and two friends at the time of the shooting. the edwards family says in a statement they are grateful the decision has been made. however, there remains a long road ahead. baltimore orioles star adam jones received a huge standing ovation one day after being
subjected to racial taunts at boston's fenway park. [ applause ] the salute yesterday was a moment of redemption for boston and the red sox. jones said fans at fenway hurled peanuts and repeatedly used a racial slur against him on monday. jeff glor shows us how boston baseball and the red sox are reacting to the incident. jeff, good morning. >> charlie, good morning to you. for those who have spent time in boston, it's not hard to see the at the has a complicated racial past. sports is no exception. the bruins and celtics broke racial barriers, but the red sox were the last baseball team to integrate and players across sports, who have lived in or visited boston, have spoken out about issues they see, past and present. >> how often have you been called the "n" word here and elsewhere? >> that's a good question. i don't know how much -- how many fingers i have or toes to keep count. >> reporter: sobering words from one of baseball's most honest
players. adam jones says racial slurs are nothing new. >> good to see you. >> reporter: what he experienced from fans inside boston's fenway park on monday was the worst he's experienced in his 12-year career. >> just something that caught my attention. i heard the "n" word. i was like okay, this is really -- this is really how it's going to go down here. i don't want any special treatment. i don't need any special treatment. treat me as normal. just keep the racist stuff out of there. >> reporter: condemnation came quick, from the state house to city hall. in a statement the red sox said they have zero tolerance for such inexcusable behavior and our entire organization and our fans are sickened by the conduct of an ignorant few. red sox president sam kennedy. >> everyone should feel comfortable at fenway park. no matter your race, religion, political beliefs, your sexuality, you are welcome at fenway. >> and here's jones. >> reporter: bebegat the beginnf last night's game, many in

beautiful scenery. >> well, there, we couldn't convince president trump's son-in-law to join us at the table. >> we'll keep trying. >> that was when we were at the white house on monday. jared kushner doesn't usually talk to the press but he did speak to "the new york times." along with his wife for a profile headlined can "ivanka trump has the president's ear." here's her agenda. one of the writers is "new york times" correspondent and "cbs this morning" contributor jodi cantor. she has now insight into ivanka's role in the white house. good morning. >> good morning. >> so much good reporting in here. >> thank you. >> what is ivanka doing that we didn't know about before? >> well, that's really why we wrote that story. to me the take away -- we had two interviews last week. was one in the west wing and to me the headline was she's looking at executive orders before the president signs them. that's a really startling fact. this is somebody who has really no record of public service. no government experience. no washington experience. she's there because she's the
president's daughter. >> but the same could be said about the president. no washington experience, no government experience. >> exactly. it speaks volumes about this administration. now, the other big thing is that she's really decided they wants to focus on gender issues as her role in this administration. she's saying she wants to pass paid family leave by the way for men as well as women. that she wants to work on making child care more affordable. she wants to raise money for female entrepreneurs around the globe. this is a really interesting assignment with some big questions. right? she's stepping into a very difficult and in some quays -- ways angry moment in gender politics. hillary clinton has just lost the election. in the interview she was kind of using language that we appropriate with hillary clinton. it was very surprising in some ways coming out of ivanka trump's mouth. >> i don't understand what that means. >> when she said we'll unleash the power of women and girls in the economy, that's language we
have heard from hillary clinton, for a really long type. so the question to me about that is is she trying to kind of atone for or make up for the problems with her father's record on women? >> don't you think -- >> jodi, i don't think that's specific to hillary clinton. >> not specific to hillary clinton but given she is one of the highest ranking senior people in this white house is clinton, do you?aughter. >> not specific. he's had some trouble with his record in this area. is she attempting to change that and will she be able to. >> is there one example where she's changed her father's mind so far where it was going in this direction and because of her lobbying for another idea she went in this direction? >> so she has weighed in on a numb berry of issues, everything from refugees to climate to
women's health and immigration. it's really broad. she doesn't see restrictionings to her portfolio. what she said is what she will often try to do is sand a decision down around the edges. often she wants to reversend eight she said she is really trying, but what she says is even if i can make a small difference. if i can blunt some of the impact here, that's significant. >> i got the feeling she's never going to disagree. >> i asked jared kushner about the relationship between father and daughter and how it played out in the oval office and he said their time in there together is alone. they go into the room, close the door, they're discussing amongst themselves and nobody else really knows what we're talking about. what we did hear is she has the
ability to do something very if few can do, which is bring criticism to him that he can accept. >> is she a person who can say no to the president? >> he's the president. the opening anecdote is about her pleading with him -- not pleading but making an emphatic case to aboy jazz for tapologiz. first he begrudgingly responds. she says to him, you know, we don't have their expect words but we talk to several in room. it's not clear he really listened to her. in the moment, he was unyielding and if you look at it a little later, it's still begrudging.
>> when you look at jared and ivanka sometimes called jivavan, what do you see? >> you can get fire or sort of politely dismissed and you move on to something else exciting in your career that you i don't know well. who are they accountable for? is the president going to fire them? >> you wouldn't think so. >> they could be fired by the united states government. >> it's a very comprehensive talking point. we should have given it more space. thank you, jodie canter. always good to have you at the table that thank you. forrer vice president joe

that even members f mr. trump's own party spoke ought against cuts. >> there are certain things not any gauche yabl. the idea that we're gutting it, i mean, come on, for gosh sakes, it's just bizarre. >> how are wu going to get the next young generation excited to make a difference here? >> i think they are excited now. they your staching to see a rising tide of -- a considered rising tied. if we for one or two years make significant cuts we'll lose a whole generation of people who would have moved and migrated to dealing with things from
alzheimer's to cancer. so it matters. >> obviously 2020 is not far aware. ou would you consider going back in the ring? >> i have a bad habit of answering questions, and i'll be completely honest with you. i had planned on running for president before beau was diagnosed. now, the election'sover. donald trump is president and i'm disappointed to state the obvious, but it was the right decision for me not to run. and i don't plan on running. everybody says because i won't commit, i must be running. i'm doing nothing to run. >> dr. agus joins us now from san diego. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> when the vice president answered that question, what was your sense he intended to do.
