7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." police in las vegas now believe the man who carried out the deadliest attack on american soil since 9/11 had an escape plan. they're not ruling out possible accomplices. the local sheriff assumes stephen paddock must have had some help. but the gunman's motive remains a mystery. >> they say paddock fired the first shots at 10:05. he stopped shooting at 10:15. two minutes after that, officers reached the 32nd floor of the mandalay bay resort and casino. at 11:20 p.m., officers blew open the door of his suite with explosives and found him dead on the floor after he shot himself. we're on the ground in las vegas near the concert site where victims were shot.
7:04 am
>> reporter: despite combing through his computer and cellphone, investigators say they found no connection to extremism or mental illness. more than 100 law enforcement agents have been scrutinizing paddock's life to see what could have set him off. new video released by the las vegas review journal shows the mayhem unfolding on the ground. >> there's a guy shooting. >> reporter: shortly after gunman stephen paddock opened fire on concertgoers sunday night. investigators have produced a profile of the gunman that the sheriff called disturbed and dangerous. >> what we know is stephen paddock is a man who spent decades acquiring weapons and ammo and living a secret life. >> reporter: as our co-anchor nora o'donnell reported on tuesday, he had amassed an arsenal. >> from october 2016 to 2017, he
7:05 am
purchased 43 firearms, the majority of them rifles. >> are you looking into the possibility that there may have been a mental issue, something that happened in october of 2016 that compelled him to purchase those weapons? >> yes. >> you are? >> yes. >> what have you uncovered? >> i haven't. i don't have any information. >> reporter: paddock left no suicide note. so far his motivation is unclear. cbs has confirmed aviation fuel tanks located 500 yards from the concert venue were hit by bullet fire but didn't penetrate. police say paddock intended to evade capture and fine. but a hotel security guard showed up outside his suite minutes after the gunfire began. >> his bravery was amazing. >> reporter: paddock fired into the hallway, hitting the guard in the leg. >> he remained with our officers, providing them the key pass to access the door and continued to help them clear rooms. >> reporter: a week before the
7:06 am
shooting, paddock rented another room in another las vegas hotel, the ogden. police don't know why, but that hotel was close to where another music festival was performing. >> vlad, thanks. the fbi spoke to stephen paddock's girlfriend for hours looking for clues. in a public statement, marilou danley called paddock a kind man and said she had seen no sign that he was planning a massacre. >> reporter: danley's description of the killer contradicts what investigators are seeing, someone who is meticulously planning, building an arsenal, then putting his deadly plan into action. still, in her four-hour interview with investigators, danley denied she knew what he was up to. >> i loved him and hoped for a quiet future together with him.
7:07 am
>> reporter: after arriving in the u.s. and speaking through her attorney, danley says it was paddock who wanted her to go to the philippines. >> i was worried that first the unexpected trip home and then the money was a way of breaking up with me. it never occurred to me no way way whatsoever that he was planning violence. >> reporter: authorities believe paddock may not have been planning alone, based on the amount of weapons and ammunition found at the crime scene and in searches of his properties. >> you have to make the assumption, he had to have some help at some point. >> reporter: investigators are looking for anyone who can provide the answers. >> there's people that could help us understand this individual. >> she is the key. >> reporter: former fbi profiler mary ellen o'toole says even the smallest details could help investigators learn more about paddock. >> what kinds of things did he find that irritated him? what were his personal habits? what were his spending habits? >> reporter: another important aspect of the investigation to
7:08 am
determine whether his mental health played a role and specifically whether he fit the clinical description of a psychopath. >> someone who has no guilt for what they do. somebody who can be very controlling and dominating. and i would walk her through these personality traits to see if those sound at all familiar to the man that she knew. >> reporter: in 1969, paddock's father was on the fbi's most wanted list for bank robbery. and at the time he was called a psychopath. danley, who is not under arrest, remains a key figure in the case. and investigators want to question her again. nora? >> thanks so much, jeff. 58 people were killed in the las vegas massacre. family and friends are mourning and trying to celebrate their lives. many of them died in the arms of loved ones. some were shielding other concertgoers from the spray of bullets. officials say 489 injured people were taken to area hospitals.
7:09 am
317 of them have been discharged. about 50 others are still in critical condition. president trump says america is truly a nation in mourning after meeting shooting victims and their families in las vegas yesterday. >> we know that your sorrow feels endless. we stand together to help you carry your pain. you're not alone. we will never leave your side. >> the president visited the police command center and praised first responders for their bravery in responding to a hail of bullets. >> in the depths of horror we will always find hope. in the men and women who risk their lives for ours. >> the president and first lady flew past the mandalay bay resort and casino as they turned to washington yesterday. mr. trump said the heroism of doctors and nurses who saved
7:10 am
lives make ys you, quote, proudo be an american. the president couldn't escape reports of secretary of state rex tillerson almost quitting. tillerson took the unusual step of appearing before cameras to talk about whether he had insulted the president and talked about resigning. margaret brennan is at the white house. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. tillerson knew the president was angry and he later sent his own spokesperson to deny that he ever called the president a more on. >> it was fake news. it was a totally phony story. >> reporter: president trump's trip to console victims in las vegas was dogged by an explosive story, claiming that secretary of state rex tillerson had called him a more on and nearly quit following a july meeting at the pentagon. >> he puts americans and america first. he's smart. >> reporter: in an attempt to assuage the president's anger, the secretary of state called an
7:11 am
impromptu press conference and said he had no plans to exit. >> i'm not from this place. but the places i come from, we don't deal with that kind of petty nonsense. >> reporter: mr. trump, who had been informed of tillerson's comments in july, said he appreciated the statement. >> total confidence in rex. i have total confidence. >> reporter: the blowup happened after president trump and tillerson sparred in july over sharply differing views on the iran nuclear deal. tillerson was also frustrated. he had been undermined on other key issues including north korea, venezuela, and a mid-east dispute. >> who the hell wants to speak about politics when i'm in front of the boy scouts, right? >> reporter: the secretary of state, a lifelong boy scout, was also dismayed by mr. trump's comments at a boy scout gathering. >> there has never been a consideration in my mind to leave. >> reporter: tillerson continued with his role, saying he was committed to being america's top diplomat. senator bob corker, chairman of the senate foreign relations
7:12 am
committee, came to his defense, saying losing tillerson would do great harm to the nation. >> he ends up not being supported in the way that i would hope a secretary of state would be supported. >> reporter: senator corker added there are people within the trump administration that he says are deliberately trying to undercut tillerson's authority. and the infighting could have an impact. even the perception of a divide between the president and his top diplomat weakens u.s. negotiating power. >> thank you so much, margaret. three american green berets were killed and two others wounded in the african country of niger. u.s. forces came under fire north of the capital near the mali border. they were on a joint patrol with local shoots. an offshoot of al qaeda is believed to be responsible. the military says u.s. forces are providing training and security assistance. tropical storm nate is turning to the southern part of the u.s. it was upgraded to a tropical
7:13 am
storm this morning off the coast of nicaragua. the storm is moving toward the gulf of mexico where it is forecast to strengthen into a hurricane this weekend and make landfall on sunday. the national hurricane center cone extends from louisiana all the way to the florida panhan e panhandle. the new tropical system comes as puerto rico tries to recover from the effects of hurricane maria. cbs news correspond david begnaud shows how puerto rico struggled without easy access to food, water, or power. >> reporter: the winds are ferocious, gusting above 120 miles per hour. communication has been cut. power is out. folks here aren't even able to reach relatives. >> i know that leaders aren't supposed to cry. and especially not on tv. but we are having a humanitarian crisis. >> reporter: even the hospitals need help.
7:14 am
there's only one operating room that's functioning right now. these are americans, sitting in line, sleeping in their cars, desperately trying to get fuel. the first person we saw when we got here was the mayor, and he said go anywhere, you will find destruction. >> people are suffering. people are crying. our children are crying. we have to work together. we have to keep hope alive. >> david, good morning and welcome to studio 57. congratulations on your reporting from there. help us understand where puerto rico is today. >> puerto rico, 90% of the island is without power. a majority of the hospitals don't have the power to operate. last night a hospital had to be evacuated. the power grid went down and the patients had to be relocated to the u.s. medical ship "comfort." i've never covered a national disaster where the emergency was endless. >> you brought so much attention
7:15 am
to it, not only on your reporting here on cbs but the stuff you posted on social media. then people were asking you to try and find help. >> there was a moment, norah, where nobody could find out about their loved ones on the island. they started reaching out to us, can you tell me about the mudslide that just happened, what should i do? instead of waiting until the next morning or the next show to report it, we started making calls. we went to the airport and there were thousands of people sleeping on the floor and children, naked, sweating, being fanned by their parents, i went to the governor and said, what can you do? he said, no, we took care of it. i showed him the video on my phone, and he said he would send aid. we're not there to be a first responder, but if you can get help to the people when it's needed, that's journalism too. >> he seemed to indicate, at one point he said to somebody there, the president, "have a good time," he's been criticized for
7:16 am
how he threw the rolls of paper towels into the crowd. >> the president didn't see the worst of it, gayle. the central part of the island where children were bathing in stream water, the president wasn't there. >> i talked to somebody who said just today they couldn't reach their mother. >> there were people in tears because some of the only ways they had been able to find out what's going on with our loved ones is through television or social media. the impact of journalism on this story has been like none i've experienced before in terms of actually being able to see questions making a difference and getting action. >> the one thing they need most. what is it? >> money. they're in debt, they're in bankruptcy. the rebuilding will be unbelievable. >> incredibly reporting, thank you so much. pennsylvania republican congressman tim murphy says he won't seek reelection after reports that he asked his mistress to have an abortion. the lawmaker, who has opposed
7:17 am
abortion, said in a statement he's taking time to, quote, seek help as my family and i continue to work through personal difficulties. the announcements comes after the pittsburgh post gazette posted text messages between representative murphy and his alleged mistress. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the final straw appears to be a newly published memo in which murphy's top staffer on capitol hill accuses him of fostering an abusive workplace environment. even before that, murphy was facing accusations of hypocrisy on abortion. >> it's not just some amorphous cell floating about. these are real human beings. >> reporter: for more than a decade on capitol hill, pennsylvania congressman tim murphy has backed up a pro-life agenda. >> we have a responsibility to
7:18 am
protect those lives. >> reporter: but according to "the pittsburgh post-gazette," in january, murphy's alleged mistress texted him saying, "you have zero issue posting your pro-life stance all over the place when you had no issue asking me to abort our unborn child just last week." murphy responded, "i've never written them, staff wrote them." it comes as the house just approved legislation that would make abortions after 20 weeks illegal. murphy, a member of the house pro-life caucus, co-sponsored and voted for the bill. the "post" obtained a memo from a murphy staffer saying that staff has been exposed to angry, aggressive and abusive behavior from the congressman. on a recent visit to his home district she writes, your
7:19 am
driving was dangerous and erratic. i feared for my life. i repeatedly, at least 15 times, asked you to stop texting. murphy's hostility and insults, she adds, were frightening. murphy's ex-mistress' pregnancy scare turned out to be a false alarm. he's made the decision to retire after meeting with house speaker paul ryan. he says, gayle, he'll serve out his remaining 15 months in office. >> thank you, nancy. critics are calling out quarterback cam newton for what they call sexist comments. ahead, why the nfl calls his comments just plain wrong.

48 and counting right here at cbs news. bob schieffer has been asking questions of presidents and news makers to help us understand the world. he's not done reporting yet. cbs news political contributor has a new book called "overload: finding the truth in today's deluge of news." how changes in the media are affecting how and what we
8:14 am
consume as news. bob, good morning. we need this book now more than ever. first, let's talk about some of the news. the secretary of state rex tillerson in an extraordinary press conference having to come out and deny he's disloyal to the president. he didn't deny he called the president a moron. >> well, you know, extraordinary is certainly the word. i can never remember a secretary of state calling a news conference to say he's loyal to the president. and going into the rest of it. i think it's very difficult for this secretary of state to continue in his job. because it's widely known in washington that the president is has lost confident in him. when that word gets around, it's very hard to get your job done. but i think he's a patriot. and all of that. but, you know, i just don't see how this goes on. i mean, when he's going out talking about trying to make contact with north korea and the
8:15 am
president cuts his legs off in public and says don't fool with that. >> do you think the news conference made it worse yesterday or do you think it helped the situation? >> i don't see how it helped. this was not like a news conference. it was more like a hostage tape, it seemed to me. >> how so? well, i mean, why was he there? you know, i mean, the "washington post" this morning they -- they say they have checked with 19 sources. i mean, this sets the new record of number of sources that say he's a short timer. and, you know, the word is he'll be gone by christmas. i don't know what happens but i don't see how it helped much of anything. >> not only that, his secretary of defense is testifying saying i support the iran/american nuclear deal. and the president said i have decided but i won't tell you what i think. >> i used to say my favorite beat was capitol hill.
8:16 am
up there everybody is an independent contractor. that's how you get news. i used to say the difference between that and the white house is the white house everybody works with the same person. >> yeah. well that's no longer apt. because you can get as many different points of view. there is as many different factions in the white house now as there are up on capitol hill >>well, of course -- go ahead. >> you go ahead. i'm going to turn to the book. >> the timing of your book is so perfect. you talk about fake news in the book. just yesterday donald trump says fake news talking about nbc and the report about the moron comment. but, you know, as you point out, this it not new acura mown any between the president and the press. >> no. not in the least. you know, i was there when spiro agnew called -- >> yeah. >> but people are getting their news from two different -- >> but now one thing that is
8:17 am
different we're overloaded from information with so many different sources, it's hard separate the weak. >> are we better off because we have so much more information today? >> right now we're overwhelmed by it. we're in the midst of this communications revolution that is totally changed not only how we get the news but our whole culture. >> what is the danger to the republicans? >> well, the danger is that once this stuff gets out there, it's hard to knock it down. and we're seeing that every day. look, the day after the shooting out in las vegas, there was stories on the internet that he was a recent convert to islam. that he was connected with isis. the big fan of rachel maddow, as if that is a sin. well, all of that was totally false. but i saw this thing about recently -- i called cbs this morning. one of the producers and said is
8:18 am
that right? she said no. >> some people would think, bob, more news better informed. >> the good news about social media now just like david was talking about how neighbors down there in puerto rico are connecting with each other. how they are e-mailing him and texting him. and he was able to get help. the other part is the stuff that appears on social media does not go through the same betting process as people used to know about and we used to trust when we had three television stations in every town. >> start out as newspaper man. and you bemoaned the loss of newspapers. you bemoan the fact that people in between the two coasts don't have newspapers and there's no corrective to power in so many communities. >> in 2004, one reporter in eight lived in new york, washington, or los angeles. that number is now down to one in five live in one of those
8:19 am
three cities. in many parts of the country we lost 126 newspapers over the last 12 years. in many parts of the country, it's not a question about getting bias news. it's the question of getting no news. and they're getting 67% of us now get at least some of our news off facebook. again, there are great advantages there. but it is not vetted in the way that the news we used to get from newspapers and from the main stream media presented it. >> all right, bob schieffer, good to see you in person and have you here at the table. >> thank you very much. overload on sales now. members of the band bon jovi hope to have tonight's gig in the rock and roll hall of fame. some of the artists nominated and how you can help decide who gets inducted. plus republican ohio governor john kasich is a strong critic of bipartisan.

8:35 am
on assault weapons. surely it hasn't changed in light of thelating shooting. what are you thinking today? >> the way to get something done, so you to get the people who are the strong gun advocates. people who are not just don't want to listen and those who favor gun control. who are not going to be extreme. from the standpoint of saying my way or no way. you got to get them law enforcement and experts in a room and say, okay, we got to let some pressure out of the pressure cooker. we can't ignore things. is it this -- this business where you can take a gun and make -- make it -- >> what people tell me who understand it. you can take the twices away. we know how to make it automatic. what i believe has to happen is people of good will have to sit in a room and hammer something out. because my mother used to cook potatoes in the device and it would whistle. i said what is it? she said that's a called a pressure cooker. if you don't let the pressure out.

8:37 am
room and find out who those people who are reasonable. when i talk to people who work with the highway patrol. they are big gun advocates. when i say is there a way to figure something out to relieve the pressure. they always say yes. but you can't find people who say no way, no how. you can't find people on the other side who said we're going to take away all the guns. that's how you to it. that's the best chance of doing it. and if you don't do it that way, it remains a stalemate. >> to be specific. would you support outlying these stocks? yeah. >> would you take action in the state. >> i don't know if i can pass it. i don't know. and i don't know exactly what everything is in ohio. >> political will on the line to do it. >> of course. this makes a lot of sense to get rid of this. nobody wants that. and i think but we have to do it not in an atmosphere where they're operating one side. there has to be a common ingredient we're not after taking away people's second amendment rights. if you don't do it together, i

don't think it gets done. >> and the second amendment rights they keep saying that. they were talking about muskets. the times have changed so drastically. >> gayle, we can have the philosophies we want on the show. if we want to get something done i'm telling you the best. >> right. >> i'm not telling you there's a guarantee. but with the right leadership you can get it. it's like health care. you know, look, in washington now many of the republicans do not want to do anything to fix the health care system. >> do you think the president of the united states, donald trump, has the political will to do this. >> i don't -- >> that's the question. that's the leader of the country. >> let me ask you, do you think he has? >> you know him better than i do. probably. i don't know. i would like to think he would do that. and i'm not sure where he is on the issue. he said something about, well, we'll have to look at this. and right away people started attacking -- >> let me ask you this. this incident in las vegas so different because it is the
8:39 am
largest mass killing in the history of this country that it might be the precipitation -- >> yes. well, yes. what i'm saying, charlie, it has to be both sides. >> we understand. >> but this is the most important thing. >> here is my -- >> if people think all of a sudden they're going to take my gun, then they're going to go like crazy and it's not the nra as much as the membership. the gun owners across america. and these are people who are republican, democrat, liberal, conservative. so they have to understand we're not out for some wholesale kind of disarming. what we're talking about here is some common sense things. for example, should we have armor-piercing bullets. what do you do about ammunition? these have to be talked about. >> the republican party in congress recently had a bill that passed out of committee was up for vote that would allow armor-pierced bullets and silencers. so there would be a further dev lugs. >> yeah. the silencers are not like it's silent.
8:40 am
'm not an expert in this. it lowers the volume of the sound. but now ryan said we're going to take a pause. look what else i want to tell you this morning is i don't want to see these health care exchanges fall apart. because it's going to mean that millions of americans are going to lose health insurance. now we have lamar alexander and patty murray supposedly working on something down there. i talked to senators from both parties and there's a way to give states flexibility which is what republicans want and what democrats need in terms of wanting to reimbrace obamacare. if we don't save these exchanges. if we don't figure out a way to stabilize this, they're going to collapse. now we've got to get about this. but right now there's no agreement. i am begging the democrats to say we want to have a comprise. and i'm trying to tell the republicans we need to have one. >> sounds like you need to be in washington, governor. >> i would break into a cold sweat when i go down there. one thing, i love john mccain that is an iconic amazing man.
8:41 am

who is related to cbs. all the leaders are made not born. start with the leaders are made not born. >> made in a way that begins, often, in some kind of adversity. the second piece that is important in the middle of the perfect storm they say i'm going make something good of all these high winds and big waves. but the third component, which is really important, is they find or stumble into a big worthy honorable mission. and the last piece of the making, this is really important for leaders today. they summon up and nurture great stories of emotional discipline. >> they face the crisis and walk through it and embrace it. >> let's start with the explorer who attempted to be the first to travel to the south pole. what are the lessons? >> one lesson he learns and it's
8:47 am
important today. all eyes are on leaders. so how they show up, how they carry themselves. whether they were confident. whether -- how they treat people. what eye contact they make are things that people are taking cues from. >> they feed off your energy as a leader. >> absolutely. >> everything do you. >> absolutely. one of the important things shackleton has to do is to manage the energy of these 27 men to keep them away from the cliff of doubt and despair and discord. and that is a critically important message and lesson for leaders leading all of us through our own turbulence and all these crises that our nation is facing. >> how about frederick douglass? >> frederick douglass, i think, he learns a series of lessons. the most important is leaders have to learn to step into the fear. to take the first step and move into their anxiety and then discover in that movement the strength and the power they have. the resilience they have within. >> how are the lessons relevant today, nancy.
8:48 am
you said at one point it's best to do nothing. >> i think it's an important lesson now. the leaders learn when the emotional stakes are high, when a big issues are at hand, best not to do anything because we don't make our best decisions in the heat of the emotional intensity. best to wait. practice some discipline. and not sabotage our mission by saying or doing something that is destructive. >> you say leaders are often lonely. even the best leaders have times where they're lonely. >> absolutely. that was one of the most interesting things about the research. each struggles through dark nights of the soul. they don't know what to do. they want to give up and they're confused. yet by a hair's breath, none of them does. and that has made all the difference. >> it's especially true with abraham lincoln. >> absolutely, charlie. he had deep, dark moments when he thought he couldn't go on.
8:49 am
right. he couldn't keep the union together. if he had given up, the course of world history would have been different. but he did not. >> thank you for coming. >> yeah, nancy. thank you. >> thank you for having me. >> the leaders have continued impact on the world. i thought that was an important point to point out. >> "forged in crisis" is on sale now. you can hear more of "cbs this morning" on our pod cast. available on itunes and apple's pod cast app. we'll be right back. the podcast apps. we'll be right back. apple's itunes and apple's ipodcast. we'll be right back. fety." ah, dinner. throughout history, the one meal when we come together, break bread, share our day and connect as a family.
