7:04 am
majority whip congressman steve scalise's security detail and alexandria police fired back. witnesses say hodgkinson was armed with a handgun and rifle when he approached the fence along the third base line and started firing. he never got on the field. representative scalise standing on second base was shot first in the hip. other lawmakers took cover in the first base dougout. >> i could see steve scalise out in the field. >> reporter: arizona senator jeff flake waited for an opportunity to help his injured colleague. >> i ran low out to steve and started putting pressure on the wound. >> reporter: investigators believe the 66-year-old hodgknson originally from illinois was out of work and had been living in his van in the alexandria area since march. the nearby q was struck by bullets. locals saw him there frequently. >> he always had his laptop. he was always with his laptop, laptop bag, always getting set up. >> reporter: his facebook page
7:05 am
shows that he supported vermont senator bernie sanders and did not like president trump. he was a member of the group called terminate the republican party. >> we're looking to glean what we can from the contents regarding his electrical devices that he owned. we're exploring all angles and we'll let the facts take it where it goes. >> reporter: so did the gunman target someone specifically on the baseball field or was this just a target of opportunity for him? that's what investigators are looking into among other things. congressman jeff duncan of south carolina says before the gunman opened fire, he asked him if there were republicans on the field. jeff. >> jeff, thank you very much. the fbi is seeking more information on james hodgkinson and his motive. agents searched his belleville, illinois, home for evidence yesterday. authorities believe hodgkinson had not lived there since march when he arrived in virginia. dean reynolds is outside his
7:06 am
house in belleville about 700 miles from where he opened fire on the baseball field. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. those who knew the man who lived in this house behind me say he was unhappy with the political direction of the country, but they never expected him to turn violent. known to many as tom, james hodgkinson grew up in belleville, graduating from a local high school in 1968. he lived in this house with his wife and ran a home inspection business until his license expired last november. >> i'm very surprised. >> reporter: ray page knew him for 30 years. >> i never have seen the man violent since i've known him. >> reporter: deeply engaged in politics, hodgkinson did not keep his views secret. >> 99% are getting pushed around and the 1% are just not giving a damn. >> reporter: in a 2015 facebook post, hodgkinson shared a political cartoon about yesterday's victim, congressman steve scalise, saying, here's a
7:07 am
republican that should lose his job but they gave him a raise. in recent months he began showing disdain for the current administration. in a march 22nd post, he wrote, it's time to destroy trump and company. just two days later a neighbor complained after hearing 50 shots fired from hodgkinson's property. >> he was very nice. he said i'll take it to a range where it's somewhat safer and that was the end of it. >> reporter: republican mike bost said he had called and phoned ten times. >> there was never one that crossed the line. he wasn't happy with my position, if i voted this way, he'd vote this way, i'll work against it next time. but no threat beyond that. >> reporter: now, hodgkinson did have an arrest record dating back to the 1970s, but they were mostly minor offenses that were
7:08 am
later dismissed. gayle? >> dean, thank you very much. congressional leaders confirm tonight's baseball game will go ahead. it's a well known washington tradition that brings republicans and democrats together. president trump called for greater unity after the shooting. >> we may have our differences, but we do well in times like these to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's capitol is here because above all they love our country. >> house speaker paul ryan repeated that theme when he spoke to members yesterday. nancy cordes is at nationals park in washington. that's the site of tonight's big game. nancy, good morning. >> good morning, gayle. there was really no serious talk about canceling this game. in fact, when congressional leaders announced that it would take place as scheduled, members of congress erupted in applause, and no one wanted to go forward more than the members who came under fire. >> we're not going to let
7:09 am
incidents like this change our way of life or daily routines. >> the republican and democratic team managers said the game will go on even though a couple of players are now on the injured reserved list. >> if you're not sure which one i'll be, i'll be the one coaching third on crutches. >> he injured his leg while diving for cover. >> this has been going on for years, and we need to play this baseball game. >> reporter: house speaker paul ryan summoned his colleagues to the floor yesterday for a message of unity. >> we're united in our shock, we're united in our anguish. an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us. [ applause ] >> democratic leader nancy pelosi did the same. >> i pray. my prayer is that we can resolve our differences in a way that furthers the preamble to the constitution and takes us closer to eplor bus unum, an injury in
7:10 am
the family, for the staff, our colleague and for his leadership. >> even with a visible increase in security, lawmakers are on edge, particularly those who were at the scene. >> i was up to bat when this shooting started. i heard a loud noise. >> i was about ten feet from that mike. he was really shot bad. >> reporter: most house members have no protective detail once they leave capitol grounds. new york republican claudia tenney received this disturbing e-mail, one down, 215 to go. >> republican chuck fleischman said the privilege to serve is worth the risk. >> we represent people every day in this country on both sides of the aisle. >> in a show of solidarity the democratic players invited the republican players out to dinner
7:11 am
last night, but come tonight on this field, it will be all business. both sides say this is a long-standing rivalry and no one's going easy on anyone. >> nancy, thanks. alabama congressman gary palmer was only about 20 feet away from the shooter. he joins us this morning. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> set the scene of what you heard, what was going on. >> we were taking batting practice. i was at shortstop. steve scalise was at second and p trent kelly was at third. when i heard the gunshot i knew immediately what it was. i turned to trent and said that was a gunshot. trent said, yeah, and then he turned and yelled, he's got a gun. the guy was coming up to the fence i think when he fired the first shot. frankly it's a miracle that he missed trent. trent's a big guy. we moved across the baseball diamond toward the first base
7:12 am
side where the only open space in the fence was. i heard two more shots and i saw scalise go down. i knew he had been hit. i knew he had been hit low, but i didn't know whether it was in the hip or the leg. >> congressman, we're all trying to process what happened yesterday. i think many people are still reeling from it. and now reports say it might have been politically motivated. this man apparently was unhappy with the republican party and said many disparaging things. what do you think when you hear about that? what needs to happen based on the conversation that is happening in the country right now? >> i think our republic's in danger, gayle. i think we're furring at the edges. i think there's extremes on both sides. i'm hearing some reports of what this gentleman had posted on his facebook page, and it's not that different from some of the things we're hearing from other people. so we have got to tone down the rhetoric. i think it has to begin with us, both parties.
7:13 am
but it's got to come from media. it's got to come from other people who are speaking to the country. and particularly in the social media. >> congressman, that's a pretty serious thing to say, the republic is in danger and the country is fraying at the edges. do you think it starts in washington? does it start with social media? what concrete steps need to be taken in your estimation? >> i think we've got to lead by example. obviously republicans and democrats differ on issues, but i think we can have a civil discussion. >> you said that the democrats at that playing field were actually praying when they heard about the shooting on the republican side. teddy roosevelt used to call the white house the bully pulpit. do we begin with leadership from the white house in terms of trying to cool down things and trying to create more stability and trying to create a more common ground? >> i think it begins with me, it begins with my colleagues. i think all of us have a stake
7:14 am
in this and every one of us need to take responsibility for what we say and how we say it. >> do you think this will take on a different view about guns and gun control in this country? terry mcauliffe said now is the time to have this conversation. i think people thought after sandy hook things would change and unfortunately very little seems to have changed. >> all i know is first of all, governor mcauliffe got his stats rong. he again used a stat for the 93 gun violence a day, that that's inaccurate in the context that he was using it. as a gun owner, i wish i had had one yesterday. >> you wish you'd had a gun yesterday so you could have fired back? >> yes, charlie. i would have liked to have a fire arm. i think trent kelly would have. there are a number of others that wish we would have been able to defend ourselves and come to the aid of the capitol
7:15 am
police who were extraordinary. >> congressman, thank you for joining us. >> thank you, charlie. in our next hour, we will talk with one of the people who was shot. that's legislative aide zack barth and his boss, congressman roger williams who was injured. it's reached a potential turning report. counsel robert mueller is trying to determine if the president obstructed justice. >> this morning the president tweeted, quote, you are witnessing the single greatest witch hunt in political history led by some very bad and conflicted people. major garrett is at the white house. good morning. >> good morning. cbs news has learned dan coats director of national el intelligence has agreed to be interviewed by robert mueller.
7:16 am
one of the topics about the russian investigation. the counsel's probe will now look into whether or not president trump attempted to obstruct justice. looking into that question doesn't necessarily mean evidence will be found or a charge will be brought. a spokesman for trump's personal attorney, marc kasowitz, said the fbi leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable, and illegal. there's no proof that the fbi is the source of this leak. national security agency director mike rogers is also cooperating. cbs news has reported the president asked rogers and coats to push back against the narrative of cooperation between his campaign and russian operatives in the 2016 election. the two men refused to answer questions about those conversations during senate testimony last week. former fbi director james comey did testify the president asked him to try to lift the cloud of the russia investigation and when he did not, jeff, the president fired him. >> major garrett at the white
7:17 am
house, thanks very much. the driver who killed three co-workers at a ups warehouse in san francisco made a former complaint about working too much overtime. a union representative said jimmy lam filed his grievance in march. he killed himself after he shot five employees during a meeting yesterday. the men who died were 56-year-old wayne chan, 50-year-old benson louis who loved to play basketball, and 46-year-old michael lefiti, a father of three known to many as big mike. he'd been with ups for 15 years. customers say he went out of his way to help others. jurors are back in court for the fourth day of deliberations in bill cosby's sexual assault trial. the 79-year-old entered the courthouse this morning with two of his publicists. jurors asked to review two more pieces of equipment yesterday. the first was the testimony that andrea constand gave last week detailing the alleged assault back in 2004.
7:18 am
the other was testimony of a detective who interviewed bill cosby about that alleged encounter. so far the jury has asked the judge six questions and deliberated for more than 26 hours. >> the death toll in the london apartment fire has risen to at least 17. the burned out apartment complex could take weeks now to search. ahead, we're going to take you to the scene for the search of missing people and have new accounts for what happened inside that tower.

8:03 am
situation, you managed to tweet that you were okay. you managed to call your mom. can you tell me what your thought process was at that time? >> sure. you know, i was out there shagging fly balls in center field when i heard a loud pop. then everybody stopped. we wondered what was going. we heard more pops, more cracks of the rifle. saw somebody with a long gun. somebody said shooters. they said run. i high tailed it to right field. there's nowhere for me to go. so i got on all fours and at that point i saw them train his gun at me. everything around me started to pop. i got hit in the leg and decided i was full of adrenaline, my flight or fight kicked in and if i wanted to live i need toed what act run for it. i made a run to the dugout. my single focus was to stay alive and keep everybody around me safe.
8:04 am
i kept my head down, we didn't know what was going on. but thank the lord for, you know, special agents griner and bailey. without them, i don't know that i'd be talking to you right now. >> congressman williams, what happened to you. >> well, i was hitting ground balls to trent kelly the third baseman and probably didn't realize the shooter was 20 yards behind me. so i finished and went over to the other side of the batting cage hitting ground balls to steve scalise. i hit a ground ball to him. we heard a pop like my thought it was possibly a car backfiring. then we heard pop, pop, pop. everybody yelled, he's got a gun. i ran for the dugout and it's about six foot in the ground. i literally dove into the dugout on the concrete. when i was in there a lot of my other colleagues were there. and i was -- i found myself with
8:05 am
senator flake and congressman mo brooks. we were there and then all of a sudden out of nowhere comes zach, my partner sitting here on the left. he was bleeding. mo brooks took his belt off and gave it to senator flake and i. we helped to make a tourniquet to cut his bleeding off. we kept our heads down. in this dugout was generation -- several generations. you had some -- late 06s like myself and we had jack barton, joe barton's son with us, 10 years old. it was crazy. we didn't know where the gunfire was coming from. so we're blessed but i want to tell you that as you have heard so many times these capitol police saved every one of our lives. we would not be here if it was not for the thin blue line that the capitol hill police and we owe it all to them. >> one of the questions that remains and the investigators are looking into, you think these were targeted shootings with someone in particular. a target.
8:06 am
>> well, i'm not so sure a target. i think the congress people were the targets. i'm not so sure any one person was a target. i think that we were the targets as congress people. and that's what he woke up to do was to kill congress people. >> congressman, our reporting is that a number of your colleagues have asked about diverting some potential campaign funds to provide protection or hire security. as you know, steve scalise was the only one who had protection there and if he wasn't there, we don't know what would have happened. is that something you're interested in doing? >> well, i want to look at it. but i thought newt gingrich put it pretty good the other night when he said you know we in congress, one thing about it, we represent about 800,000 people. not all of them vote for us, but they can talk to their representative about what their issues are. so i think that's important. but also i think when you have a group of congressmen, 25 or 35
8:07 am
congressmen in one group we ought to study that as far as security. that is -- that doesn't make for a good situation if somebody has us in their harm's way. i do think it needs to be looked at and studied. >> will you be going to the game tonight? >> i know zach is going to go. i'm going to be -- i'm the coach of the team along with joe barton. i'm coaching third base on my crutches. so i'm going to guess i'm the only third base coach tonight on crutches. >> i think that was a yes. >> just to make sure nobody makes wide turns around the third base. >> thank you so much. >> thank you for joining. >> thank you. >> president trump is leading calls for unity following the shooting. >> we can all agree that we are blessed to be americans. that our children deserve to grow up in the nation of safety and peace. and that we are strongest when we are unified. and when we work together for the common good.

8:26 am
8:27. all eyes on oakland. we are tracking delays along 880. everyone is heading to the victory parade but we had an earlier accident along the eastshore freeway. and that's backed things up completely. so if you want to take mass transit that's going to be your best option. but expect crowds and big delays. definitely have your game plan. have your clipper card ready. here's 880 from 238 on up to the maze over an hour commute. not looking good. we do have free parking at the
8:27 am
oakland coliseum. lots a and b opening up at 8 a.m. and you can take the bart into downtown oakland. let's keep in mind, lots of street closures and very limited parking. so you're definitely going to want to use mass transit heading into oakland this morning. and we are tracking broadway and jackson have just been shut down the on- and off-ramps from 880 so just a heads up traveling in that area. allen? >> jaclyn, thanks. you can expect a high of about 76 if you are heading to the big parade in oakland. of course, much warmer inland. the big heat is coming tomorrow. cooler along the coast in san francisco. and don't forget, you can catch all the action of today's celebration right here on kpix 5 starting at 9:30.

i love this picture. you know why? it shows you are never too old to rock on. rock on, dude. this gentleman of a certain age proves that he's showing no signs of stopping as he head bangs his way to a hard rock metallica song in his car. even his air drumming is to the point. >> wraparound glasses and banging on the steering wheel. >> we don't know his name or anything about him. you can tell by looking at this guy, he's a fun guy. i like that. welcome back to our "cbs this morning" -- >> party. >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." i'm trying to say we're going to go to the green room. sorry about that. hec let's go to the green room. you've about got a general, a navy s.e.a.l. and a best-selling author. who's who, charlie?
8:30 am
>> malcolm gladwell is t and stanley mcchrystal is the best-selling author -- >> there you go. right now it's time to show you some of this morning's headlines. the "washington post" reports that dennis rodman had a gift for the president there. it was president trump's book called "the art of deal." he gave it to the sports miniter stored but it was intended for king jong-un. rodman says his trip to north korea has nothing to do with the white house. billboard reports on the grammy announcing sweeping changing for the first time. members of the recording academy will be able to cast their awards online. songwriters will be recognized in the album of the year category. they'll be established for wrap, contemporary instrumental, and new age genres around the definition of an album will be
8:31 am
expanded. the "los angeles times" reports on a much anticipated fight that will happen in las vegas. the august bout will bring may weather jr. out of retirement and he'll face connor mcgregor. the irishman faces long odds. he's considered to be a 25-1 favorite. >> there's a lot of trash talking already. one of classic rock's anthems could be getting a revised song writing credit. they want to credit yoko ohno as a co-writer. ohno is the widow of the late beatle. he said ohno deserved credit due to her inspiration on the song. this week defense secretary james mattis was granted authority to set those levels to increase troops. retired four-star stanley mcchrystal commanded american and international forces in
8:32 am
afghanistan. he also served as commander of the joint special operations command. mcchrystal was tasked with re-imagining the battlefield of the middle east. he outlined how he did that in his 2015 bestseller "team of teams." >> fussell has followed that up with a book of his own. the book is called "one mission: how leaders build a team of teams." the bookses abo is about applyio anyone in the field. >> there's concern around the world. give me a sense because you think of national security, yo think about this country and the timely conversation. what was your reaction when you watched that yesterday and what we need to be thinking about. >> well, i think like everybody else. it's horror at what happened but it's the hope that it starts a
8:33 am
national conversation about a number of issues. one is about partisanship, conversation, and another is about why so many people are being killed by guns in our people. i think we need thoughtful people to come together and take on a tough issue. >> that's what struck me yesterday. we've been reporting on it all morning. 50 toe 100 shots. when you hear the gunshots and how long it took. as a navy s.e.a.l., you know the sound. what were you thinking when you looked at that and what it all means? >> obviously sympathy for the folks and the families. >> of course. >> and broader problem here, which i think stan just identified. this is increasing and we have to get our hands around this issue. and for people who haven't been exposed to that before, that's a life-changing moment they'll wrestle with for years. >> what sort of leadership do you need and lessons can be taken from the book? >> the first is it's not just
8:34 am
about a single leader. it's about a communitiet when we come together, we get more brains involved, wisdom involved, different perspectives, and we can have some kind of consensus and support. so if we always look for a single iconic person, we'll look for a mistake. >> you write about a leadership mikt. what is that in. >> we want to look for one person who will lead us through tough times. we saw that before. we've got the right general in place. >> we always heard in business you can only have one leader. >> what they've always dunld and what's more important than ever is they create teams that can connect. they did that for us in the military. it's being done in industry and politics. >> leadership leadership is leadership, whether it's in the military, whether it's in business, whether it's in politic sthoos that's right. that's right. >> what are the core principle os thereafter kind of leadership? >> well, in today's world i
8:35 am
think it's more important thanner that leaders that are close to these very different problems, they're being driven by interconnected problems. leaders have to empower those. that's what worked for us in the service and that's what we see working well in the industry as folks start to apply that sort of mod >> what did you take that you learned on the battlefield because most of us don't have your skills or your skills in general. we're not navy s.e.a.l.s and we're not equipped to do the things that we do. there are things on the battlefield that can really translate into business. >> i've been out of service for five years and i've been constantly impressed. there's great leaders, great people in those organizations that want to do great things. they want to be part of something that has teamer meaning. that was critical to us in terms of how special operations worked
8:36 am
and i think there are several indications. >> admiral mccraven was here. he talked about his book, lessons he learn and it starts with making your bed. one thing about navy s.e.a.l.s is you're often surprised by those who make the cut. are you surprised? >> it really is interesting. you'll have someone who finished an iron man triathlon who can't make it to second training and a kid from iowa who's never seen the ocean who made it as a top graduate. so it's about inner character. >> what did you see in him, general? one of your favorite words, charlie, intellectually curious. there was something that stood out you do of all the people. >> when i was first commanding, chris was asking different questions. he was asking big questions. he was asking how the pieces fit together, not about the focused
8:37 am
narrow think things and that makes an immediate impression. >> one thing about the secretary of defense, mattis. the president has seemed to have given him lots of thofrmt is that a good thing or do we need to be reminded that the heart of the american system is civilian control? >> i think it's a good thing to empower is up back cousubordina. the american people ultimately still have ownership of those decisions. so it has to be a melded system in which civilians and military leaders together arrive at right decisions but also prosecute policies that everybody supports, that everybody understands ultimately. the men agree going in, but when policy is set, we all have the idea to carry on. >> where should troop levels be many. >> it's hard to say.
8:38 am
i would defer what jim matusz and mcnichols on ground are recommending. but i think we need to ask ourselves, if we sent more troops and that doesn't solve the problem or make the change we hope, what will we do then? that's the question nation needs to ask itself about its long-term things in afghanistan and what we hope to achieve. >> thank you so much. good to see you do. >> food goode to see the two of you. thank you so much. the name of the book is "one mission." it's on sale now, wherever you like to buy your book. bestseller malcolm gladwell says he's made his podcast even weirder. his thoughts on forgotten events including the recipe change at mcdonald's that he said

enshrined as a society. et's a fascinating example of a small group of very wealthy people have managed to essentially not pay any property taxes for generations on these huge golf courses in the middle of city. >> and no one else gets to play on it. >> and l.a. is a city that has one of the fewest amount of parkland of any major american city. it is under parked. and so i would go to l.a. and i would be confronted by this weird fact which is i'm a runner. there's nowhere to run in l.a., and yet there are these 100-aker dub there are subscription or seven with chain link fences that and you report that nobody was on the course. why can't you go and walk around shoo that's how i got thinking how privilege gets embedded in the structure of our society. et's one of those -- what i'm trying to do with the podcast is use these kind of a very seemingly lighthearted questions
8:45 am
to examine much more important questions. >> because of the bizarre case. it becomes a jumping off point to talk to landscape architects, to go anywhere you want to go. >> there was a moment when e was making this episode where i thought, i need to talk a philosoph philosopher. h is getting so complicated. i called a guy at the university of washington, mark cohen, who's so much fun. it was one of those things you can do in a podcast. you know, there's no rules. if you want to talk to a philosopher, you can talk to a y that's what i love about the forum. >> talk about what you learned about the ceos who play golf and what their companies are doing. >> there's an economist named lee bickerstaff who did this lovely work. if you're a serious golfer, you post your scores on the usga's
8:46 am
website so you can calculate your handy cape. what he did is looked at all the people who posted their scores and matched it to a list of ceos of public companies and was able to figure out how much ceos play golf and then he was abe to figure out what effect does playing golf have on the performance of your company. and first of all he showed that ceos play an astonishing amount of golf and the more you play, the worst your company does. at a shareholders ming they should stand up. >> do you think, therefore, the country did badly because president obama loved to play golf? >> no. i would say this. i would be happy if presidents as a group played less golf and spent more time mastering the details of their presidency. but i have nothing against people doing sports for recreation. my problem is when an addiction

pg&e learned a tragic lesson we can never forget. this gas pipeline ruptured in san bruno.
8:53 am
the explosion and fire killed eight people. pg&e was convicted of six felony charges including five violations of the u.s. pipeline safety act and obstructing an ntsb investigation. pg&e was fined, placed under an outside monitor, given five years of probation, and required to perform 10,000 hours of community service. we are deeply sorry. we failed our customers in san bruno. while an apology alone will never be enough, actions can make pg&e safer. and that's why we've replaced hundreds of miles of gas pipeline, adopted new leak detection technology that is one-thousand times more sensitive, and built a state-of-the-art gas operations center. we can never forget what happened in san bruno, that's why we're working every day to make pg&e the safest energy company in the nation.
