7:03 am
presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." while you were sleeping, the government dysfunction was on full display in washington. this morning, president trump signed a compromised funding bill approved by congress ending the second government shutdown in just three weeks. >> the house and senate voted for the measure after a midnight deadline because of a long protest by republican senator rand paul. he blasted members of his own party for abandoning their view of government spending and fiscal responsibility. >> it's a litmus test of hypocrisy. if they were against trillion dollar deficits for president obama, why is it okay to be a republican deficit of a trillion dollars? i think there's no escaping the hypocrisy of that. >> nancy cordes is on capitol hill with the last-minute push to get the government open on time. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. so this was an embarrassing
7:04 am
episode for congress. most federal employees did not go to bed last night expecting that their federal government would shut down. but as ual congress left this spending deal until the last minute, leaving very little room for error. and then error occurred in the form of kentucky republican rand paul. he decided to take a stand on government spending. rally against this deal. which bumps up caps on military and domestic spending and includes $90 billion in disaster relief. plus a one-year elimination of the debt ceiling. so, all told, the price tag, about $300 billion. with annual budget deficits that could exceed $1 trillion. and rand paul's not the only republican who has argued that their party is now running up the same deficits for which they criticized president obama. but the rest of his republican colleagues simply weren't willing to court a government shutdown over it. and some of them made their
7:05 am
irritation with him very clear. once his time on the senate floor ran out, the plan did actually pass by a wide margin in both the house and the senate. in overnight shutdown was so unexpected that most government administrators didn't really spend any time planning for it. and so some government workers were sent home overnight. the rest told to check with their agencies in the morning. >> nancy, thanks. sources tell cbs news this morning that a top white house official was told about potential issues in rob porter's background a year ago. president trump's staff secretary, one of his most trusted aides, resigned this week over abuse allegations by porter's two ex-wives. julianna goldman is at the white house with that new information. julianna, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we saw a rare display of contrition from this white house yesterday. it was about who knew what and
7:06 am
when. >> we all could have done better over last few hours or last few days in dealing with the situation. >> reporter: spokesman raj shah spoke about the accusations against rob porter. shah says the white house changed its stance after originally defending porter. once photos of porter's first ex-wife with a bruised eye caused public outrage. porter's second ex-wife jennifer willoughby told cnn he asked her to take down comments she published on instagram that o obliquely referenced him. >> he was asking me to downplay it. >> reporter: saying he became only fully aware of the abuse allegations wednesday. but cbs news learned over a year ago porter told the white house counsel don mcgahn there could be derogatory information in his background check. mcgahn said the fbi process would play itself out. in june, the fbi sent a file, including the abuse claims, to
7:07 am
mcgahn's office. but the file apparently didn't go to mcgahn. mcgahn got a call from an ex-girlfriend of porters telling him about the allegations of abuse. mcg ahn informed kelly but at what level of detail is unclear. the revelations apparently had no impact on porter's standing. in fact that same month, porter accompanied the president on his first state visit to china. that's putting kelly in the cross hairs. his reputation for discipline and order diminishing. in addition to this episode, earlier in the week, he referred to some of the so-called dreamers as lazy. in an e-mail to white house staff last night, kelly said domestic violence is abhorrent and has no place in our society. >> baste, itat best, spin, at ws a lie. >> reporter: peter wehner served in the last three administrations. >> he should have done something about it. >> reporter: amid all these questions, one of the outstanding issues remains, porter's access to classified information.
7:08 am
given that the white house knew about these allegations of abuse. >> all right, julianna, thank you. former trump white house aide omarosa manigault-newman is opening up about her 11 months in the west wing. she's now a contestant on cbs' "celebrity big brother" where everything that happens is captured by cameras. here's a look at the live stream from the house that is up 24 hours a day. omarosa has been talking about life inside the president's inner circle. jan crawford is in washington with her emotional confession. jan, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning. so omarosa introduced herself to the "big brother" audience as a, quote, reality tv legend. and her performance on this week's show was one for the books. >> i felt like it was like a call to duty. i felt like i was serving my country, not serving him. >> reporter: a teary-eyed omarosa told fellow "big brother" contestant ross mathews that her time in the white house, she was haunted by the president's tweets. >> it's not my circus, not my
7:09 am
monkeys, you know, i'd like to say not my problem but i can't say that because it's bad. >> reporter: and with the cameras rolling, she said americans should be worried. >> i need you to say no, it's going to be okay. >> no, it's going to not be okay. it's not. >> omarosa was fired three times on "the apprentice" and this is the fourth time we let her go. >> reporter: a white house spokesman downplayed omarosa's role. >> she had limited contact with the president while here. she has no contact now. >> you're fired. >> reporter: omarosa's relationship with the president goes back to the first season of the "the apprentice" in 2004. she became one of the most outspoken african-american supporters of his 2016 presidential campaign. >> mr. trump made a commitment to improving the condition of the lives of african-americans in this country. >> reporter: in december, officials announced that omarosa had resigned her position in the office of public liaison. >> i like omarosa. >> reporter: the president
7:10 am
offered his support. >> omarosa's a good person. >> reporter: but omarosa wouldn't let that be the last word. >> would you vote for him again? >> god, no. >> reporter: now omarosa did say back in december she had a story to tell. as for her reality tv career, now, she's done "the apprentice" and now "big brother" but her best show might be "survivor." john. >> thanks. >> we just have to say something about that, i'm sorry. just the fact that she's whispering, it's like if i'm whispering now, can you hear me and see me. they know there's cameras everywhere. >> and confessing to ross the intern. >> and the music. but let me tell you, it will be interesting to see how many people watch. i'm predicting a lot. >> i agree. >> from one reality show to another. >> yes. >> jan, thank you. the opening ceremony of the winter olympics is under way right now in south korea. athletes from around the world are marching into pyeongchang olympic stadium with their nation's flags. the united states is represented
7:11 am
by 244 athletes in an historic moment, the sister of north korean leader, kim jong-un, shook hands with the president of south korea. ben tracy is in pyeongchang. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the olympics sure has a way of bringing people together. i side this stadium, you have the vice president of the united states and the sister of north korea leader kim jong-un. 28-year-old kim yo-jong arrived here in south korea today. the first member of north korea's ruling family to visit the south. earlier today, vice president mike pence toured a south korean naval memorial and met with north korean defectors. he brought with him the father of american college student otto warmbier who died last year after being released from a north korean president. south and north korea are marching under a unified flag at the opening ceremony. it shows the outline of the korean peninsula. a majority of south koreans oppose using that flag.
7:12 am
there have been daily protests here. and some people we've talked to say they're upset about not seeing south korea's flag paraded at the opening ceremony of its own olympics. but of course for the athletes, this is all about the competition and the first medals of these olympic games are up for grabs tomorrow in everything from ski jumping to speed skating. norah. >> all right, ben tracy in pyeongchang, thank you. as the athletes prepare for the opening ceremony, the chairman of the u.s. olympic committee apologized to larry nassar's victims. >> the olympic system in the united states failed these athletes. and we are part -- we are part of the olympic system in the united states. >> more than 250 women and girls say they were abused by the former olympic gymnastics team doctor. two senators and 18 olympians called on scott blackmun, the ceo of the u.s. olympic committee, to resign after allegations he mishandled reports of nassar's abuse. the committee chairman larry probst defended blackmun
7:13 am
overnight. >> we think he did what he was supposed to do and did the right thing at every turn. but, again -- >> two separate house committees will investigate the u.s. olympic committee's role. the dow is trading higher this morning after the index suffered its second worst point drop ever. yesterday, it fell more than 1,000 points. the worst point drop in history, nearly 1200 point, happened just on monday. the index is down 10% from its record high on january 26th. that officially puts it in correction territory. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here at the table. much to discuss. it's been two years since the last correction. does that mean we're really overdue? >> i think so. we have seen five or six corrections depending on which index you're looking at since 2009, since the bull market started. and, you know, almost at the ninth anniversary. we usually see corrections every year, every year and a half. so two years since the last one is an awfully long stretch. i should also point out that it's also been a very tranquil
7:14 am
period over the last couple of years. until this recent selling began, we've had very little fluctuation, very few big down days. so i know it's jarring to see these point numbers up on the screen. but we have been overdue. >> what will it mean for the market and investors? >> for the market, it is a breather. for investors, it's a pretty rotten week. most people who are investing, they know, we're in it for the long term. it's fascinating. retail investors, people like us who invest for retirement, seem to be taking this in stride. it's the professional investors who are freaking out right now. >> right, and why are they freaking out? regular people, we've all learned now to behave and not freak out but there are people who are freaking out. who are they and why are they doing it? >> well, many of them are hedge fund folks who are relying on mathematical models to try to create a lot of value for their investors. and so what they did was they put a bet on the table which is kind of fascinating. they said we believe it will
7:15 am
remain tranquil going forward. we're going to own stocks but we think there's not going to be a lot of volatility. all a sudden, the volatility ex-plot e explodes and they've got to unwind trades quickly. the volatility index which hit a record low back in november popped up this last week of trading in a way that took them all by surprise. >> all right, jill, thank you so much. a powerful winter storm is snarling travel for millions of americans. heavy snowfall is creating a dangerous commute for drivers in the midwest. more than 1,000 flights are canceled. the storm will impact people who live in states from montana to maine. dean reynolds is in chicago where about a foot of snow is expected. dean, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we're here at chicago's north avenue beach along the lake michigan lake front. but i don't think anybody's going swimming here. it's been snowing since about 6:00 yesterday evening. and the totals, while not exactly what we thought, are
7:16 am
being held down somewhat because the snow is not terribly heavy. so it's not quite as deep as we thought it might be. businesses and schools across the region, though, have been closed, as the storm hits about 10 states throughout the midwest. mayor emanuel's warning people they may be snowed-in for a time. those snow predictions are calling for maybe a foot. but that's throughout the entire weekend perhaps. and right now, the fact that it hasn't reached a foot is not terribly disappointing to a lot of us here. >> well said, dean, thank you so much. the family of a hollywood executive who took her own life says she was collateral damage in the harvey weinstein scandal. 50-year-old jill messick died wednesday. an e-mail from her attorney appears to show she supports weinstein's claim he did not rape actress rose mcgowan.
7:17 am
vladimir dudi vladimir dutiers is here. vlad, good morning. >> the family says she suffered and the media spotlight was devastating. they say the media did not tell the whole story because messick was one of first people to defend mcgowan 20 years ago. >> i have been silent for 20 years. >> reporter: actress mcgowan outspoken in not only accusing weinstein raping her, but also blaming her supposed enablers. >> didn't you tell your manager? >> yes, but she got a job with him for seven years right after. >> reporter: the manager at the time was jill messick. after her death yesterday, her family put out a statement, disputing some of the actress's claims. according to the family, mcgowan did tell messick about an alleged sexual encounter with weinstein immediately after it happened in 1997 but never said she was raped. they say messick relayed the story to her bosses who promised to handle it. >> the family claims that
7:18 am
messick raised a lot of these concerns about rose mcgowan and the treatment she received by weinstein to superiors. >> reporter: weinstein's attorney recently released a e-mail, explaining what she says mcgowan told her. mcgowan had got noon a hten int tub with mr. weinstein. with hindsight, something she regretted. the family says the e-mail's release caused her reputation to be sullied despite having done nothing wrong. messick, who suffered from depression, took her own life thursday. >> being in the headlines really impacted gel messick. she was someone who had been attacked for her role in this saga that she knew chose to engage in. >> reporter: a lawyer for harvey weinstein has caused actress ross mcgowan's claims of rape a bold lie. we reached out to her for

strong. u.s. growth is strong. profits are strong. wages are up. i think with what investors are nervous about is interest rates might start going up. stocks have been the only game in town. you put your money in bonds, you got nothing. now some money will shift out and housing mortgages will be more expensive. that's i think the fear. >> in washington this week, there was another debate about spending. rand paul kept everybody there late last night talking about the debt and deficit. is there going to be any connection between that and these big numbers we're hearing and possible interest rates going up that might hurt the economy? >> it could come down the road. we could see pressure on the federal reserve not to raise interest rates because it's painful for the stock market. it's painful for the u.s. government. so far that's not what's going on here. i mean, let's face it, it's been sort of a circus in washington for a year, and the stock market just goes up and up. to say it's craziness in washington that's driving the stock market down, kind of hard case to make.

all of that great. what about, this is following on john's question, the government will have to borrow about $1 trillion. who will buy that debt? >> for the moment everyone wants to buy u.s. debt. the dollar is king in a way it hasn't been since the 1950s. that could turn. if global interest rates go up and we don't really know why they've come so low, it will get painful. politicians will have to do stuff. they don't seem very good at that. it could go wrong, but it's probably not something that's happening overnight. >> all right. thank you, ken. >> thank you. >> you're so calm and steady, i would like to know when you start freaking out, ken. i want to be there when that happens. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> symbolic handshake between south korea's president and the sister of north korean leader kim jong-un made history this morning at the olympics. his sister was part of the north korean delegation and the first member of the north's ruling family to visit the south. >> earlier vice president mike pence met with defectors from
