7:02 am
her time at the network is coming to an end. >> all that -- >> the sidewalk collapsed right under these two women in southeast turkey. >> the pair were reportedly not seriously injured. >> a dog in maine is diving head first into fall. yeah, it's fall. >> that's all of us. >> and all that matters. >> this fake bomb stuff is the person behind this just incompetent or are they just trying to scare us. if they're just trying to scare us, mission accomplished. you clearly don't have a worried face. >> gayle, i'm america's sweetheart what do i have to worry about? >> on "cbs this morning." >> the internet was obsessed with this bizarre photo of justin bieber sitting alone on a park bench eating a burrito sideways. here's the photo here. now, we don't know -- we don't know, maybe his burrito started to split at the sides, desposito times call for desposito
7:03 am
measures. >> brought to you by toyota, let's go places. as you wake up in the west, you're seeing a live picture as a police bomb truck is heading to a new location. in the west, police have now found two more suspicious packages this morning that were sent to critics of president trump and that's why you're seeing those trucks right now. that brings total number to 12. one of them right here in new york city was sent to the former director of national intelligence. that's james clapper. >> another one was found at a u.s. mail facility near miami where investigators suspect other packages were processed. it was addressed to corey boomer. jeff pegues has been tracking this investigation from the beginning. jeff, good morning, what do we know about these two additional packages? >> well, they're fitting the profile if you will, of what investigators have seen with the previous suspicious packagings. let's take a look at what this latest package looks like. it looks the same. with -- though it's addressed to
7:04 am
ja james clapper. debbie wasserman schultz and the six american flag forever stamps. it looks just like the others that investigators have told us to look out for and the public to look out for and to be vigilant about. and so now investigators, norah, have more evidence to go on. unfortunately, these suspicious packages keep popping up. >> they all look similar. what do they do now with these packages? how do they discover some of the forensic evidence? >> well, listen, it looks like this bomb disposal unit is taking this latest suspicious device found in new york city north to the bronx but eventually we suspect that this will be another one of those devices that ends up at the fbi lab in quantico, virginia where they will deconstruct these devices. trying to figure out where the components came from. then you can broaden your
7:05 am
investigation out from there and look for perhaps surveillance video and an address potentially of a suspect. >> are officials saying there may still be more packages out there? >> well, that has been the concern all week long, that perhaps there are still packages in the system and they've been asking the public to remain vigilant about that. because even though there have been no injury, and that is a good thing, investigators are concerned that potentially one of these suspicious devices could actually detonate. that's what they're concerned about. that's why they're asking the public, norah, to remain vigilant. >> all right, jeff, thank you. >> yes, and we have director clapper already this morning say that in his mind there's no doubt that this is domestic terrorism. investigators have already moved into that u.s. facility in opa locka, florida, where the package addressed to senator booker was found this morning. manuel bojorquez is there with what we're learning about the
7:06 am
origin of some of these packages. >> reporter: good morning. we were mere last night and watched as u.s. postal service police as well as miami-dade county police and the fbi conducted a security sweep of behind me, believing that some of those packages did make their way here and, indeed, as we've reported this morning, we have learned that at least one package was found here, one address to senator booker, and we're told it has now been rendered safe. investigators at this point believe at least some of those packages were dropped off at mail facilities in south florida and that is how they ended up at this large processing facility here. it is unclear at this point whether the one that was addressed to senator booker was incoming organize outgoing. you'll recall as we've reported that whoever sent these out tried to make it seem they were coming from the florida office of congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz. one of those offices made it to her office because it had the wrong address for the intended
7:07 am
target. presumably that package also was processed through the center behind me. >> at this point, do investigators think the bomb maker is from south florida? >> not necessarily. this person could have very easily traveled down to south florida to put those packages in the mail. as you know, this is a large urban center. many major highways and interstates go through this area. and in many previous cases that are similar to this, like the un that bomb, the suspects w s wouo out of their way hundreds miles to put them in the mail just to try to throw off investigators. >> all right, manuel, we thank you very much. sarah sanders says president trump is receiving constant information on this situation. if he has something to say, we'll bring it to you later in this broadcast. for now, president trump may use emergency powers to stop a caravan of migrants from crossing the u.s. border. thousands of people from central america are still more than 1,000 miles away in southern
7:08 am
mexico. the president wants to deny them any opportunity to seek asylum. weijia jiang is at the white house with the latest on that story. weijia, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, gayle. president trump has expressed his frustration publicly over this caravan several times and now the administration is considering a wide range of administrative legal and legislative action. the president tweeted a message to migrants thursday. go back to your country and if you want, apply for citizenship like millions of others are doing. secretary of defense james mattis is expected to sign an order to send hundreds of active duty troops to the border. the troops will join the roughly 2,000 national guardsmen the president dispatched there in april. the new troops can build barriers and help look for people trying to cross the border illegally. but they do not have the authority to apprehend illegal immigrants. they also won't be authorized to use force except in
7:09 am
self-defense. president trump has turned immigration into one of his top campaign issues heading into the midterms and critics say all these potential moves to stop the caravan are only for political gain given the timing, just 11 days before election day. >> his executive order may face legal challenges as well. weijia, thank you. well, attorney michael avenatti and one of his clients could face a criminal investigation stemming from the brett kavanaugh supreme court confirmation. his client, julie swetnick, is one of several women who accuse kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. senate judiciary chairman chuck grassley claims avenatti and swetnick made false allegations. paula reid is at the justice department with the latest. paula, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. senator grassley is asking the justice department to look into whether avenatti and swetnick intentionally lied to the committee in an effort to interfere with its investigation into kavanaugh. but avenatti says he welcomes the probe as an opportunity to
7:10 am
vindicate his client. >> thank you, senator grassley. thank you. it is christmas in october. >> reporter: michael avenatti says senator grassley opened a pando pandora's box by asking the justice department to investigate whether he and his client violated federal law during kavanaugh's confirmation. >> we're going to put kavanaugh on trial and test his credibility against that of me and my client. we welcome that fight. >> reporter: swetnick alleged kavanaugh and his friends drugged female students at house parties so they could gang rape them. kavanaugh vigorously denied the allegations. >> the swetnick thing is a joke. that is a farce. >> reporter: in his 12-page letter, senator grassley says there is simply no credible evidence that ms. swetnick ever met or socialized with judge kavanaugh. avenatti is considering a potential run in 2020. >> i'm getting more serious by
7:11 am
the week because people are encouraging me to do it. >> reporter: comments he made this week will likely rile some of his supporters. he said the nominee in 2020 better be a white male because, quote, when you have a white male making the arguments, they carry more weight. >> i don't think there's anything wrong with calling out people that look like me for not doing enough to defend women and minorities and people of color and i'm going to continue to do that. >> reporter: the justice department has not said whether or not it will pursue this. if it does, avenatti will likely try to paint it as a politically motivated investigation. many republicans believe it is kavanaugh who is the true victim here and would like to see this referral pursued. >> will be interesting, thank you. "the new york times" reports that google has quietly protected at least three male executives from sexual misconduct claims over the last decade and two of them left with massive payouts. in one day, a co-worker claimed executive andy rubin coerced her
7:12 am
into performing oral sex. google investigated and found the claim to be credible. the paper says rubin, the creator of android, was asked to resign but he was given a $90 million exit package. the spokesperson for rubin tells cbs news the allegations are demon staably false and the relationship was consensual. >> "the times" says a second executive was accused of globing a co-worker at a company party and let go with a multimillion-dollar exit package. a third executive remained in a highly paid position despite having a relationship with a subordinate. she says she was later forced out of the company. cbs news has obtained an e-mail sent by google's ceo to employees. in it, the company claims to have fired 48 people for sexual harassment in the past two years, including 13 senior managers. it says none received exit packa packages. megyn kelly remains in controversial days after she
7:13 am
suggested putting on black face as a halloween costume is not necessarily racist. a source tells cbs news her employment status at nbc news has not changed. jericka duncan is here with why her career there is still in jeopardy, jericka, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that same source tells us reports that kelly's show will be canceled and she's seeking a $50 million settlement, quote, sound untrue, but for a second day in a row megyn kelly today is a rerun, adding to the speculation of her imminent exit. >> thank you for listening and for helping me listen too. >> reporter: megyn kelly choked back tears when she apologized wednesday, but it may not save her job. her staff has been told she is not returning to the show according to hollywood reporter editorial director matthew belloni. >> i would not be surprised if nbc decided to pay her out, let her go and move on. >> reporter: what message does this send if she is not fire
7:14 am
order she does stay? >> that there's a tolerance for inappropriate comments if the person apologizes. >> hello, everyone. >> reporter: kelly signed a contract reportedly worth $23 million a year. she was lured away from fox news where the prime-time star has a history of making racially insensitive comments. >> jesus was a white man too. >> they were willing to take a risk on her and this is what happened. >> reporter: "the wall street journal" reports some nbc executives were irked by kelly's coverage of sexual misconduct allegations against tom brokaw and matt lauer. >> no employer should make you have to choose between your job and your honor. >> reporter: and her suggestion nbc may have blocked r eed rona farrow's investigation into harvey wweinstein. >> i've been that the table before and sometimes i thought, girl do you know your bosses are watching? >> reporter: chief television
7:15 am
critic james ponewiek. >> whether this is an excuse for nbc, i don't know, but she doesn't have the protection that ratings success sometimes affords. >> well, kelly's first season averaged nearly 2 million viewers, 375,000 viewer than the "today" show 9:00 a.m. hour had before she arrived. nbc news has not said anything publicly about her long-term future. she has reportedly hired a prominent attorney who is meeting with nbc executives today. there's new information on a shooting at a kentucky super market, suggesting the gunman may have been targeting african-americans. gregory bush is charged with murdering a black man and woman, 69-year-old marie stollard and a 57-year-old vicky lee jones at a kroger store near louisville. a bystander said bush said whites don't shoot whites before he was arrested. police say bush tried to enter a

7:18 am
>> his parents have been fighting for his family. >> a long time. >> for so long. >> we should mention, you can see are mo of chip reid's interview with the shepards tonight on the cbs evening news with jeff glor. in the first ever auction of its kind, a painting created by artificial intelligence has sold for a whole lot of money. how about this, nearly half a million dollars. when we showed you this unique piece, titled a portrait, we got to see it live and in color. a computer uses special algorithm to generate the image after scanning human-made paintings. christie's auction house estimated the ai portrait would sell for between $7,000 and $10,000. that's what they told us at the time. yesterday an anonymous buyer bought it for more than $430,000. so it's the first of its kind auction for a one of a kind painting. somebody's thinking, i got a deal here. it will be interesting to see who bought it if their identity

7:32 am
a good time. i had a good time. >> i love that story too. >> yes. moving on. >> all right, back to work. welcome back to "cbs this morning." here are three things you should know this morning. president trump rolled out an initiative to attempt to lower prices for drugs administered by doctors under medicare. it would not cover drugs people buy at the pharmacy. the administration wants to peg u.s. drug prices to lower costs in countries where governments strictly control prices. it could save medicare $17 billion over five years. drugmakers are pushing back. arguing the plan amounts to price controls. >> the federal trade commission says reported losses from imposter scams regarding gift cards have hit $53 million in the first nine months of 2018. the scams involve con artists who pose as government officials and demand payments for bogus bills. the losses have more than doubled since 2015. now, we've reported extensively on these types of scams. the ftc reminds consumers that

government agencies do not take, again, they do not take prepaid cars or gift cards as payment. >> and the first nor'easter of the season is set to pound the eastern seaboard this weekend with drenching rain and snow in higher elevations. major cities like new york and philadelphia could see strong winds and rain starting as early as tonight. the remnants of hurricane willa are fuelling this potentially disruptive storm. faces its biggest crisis in the united states since the boston sex abuse scandal. 13 states and the district of columbia are now investigating whether abuse was concealed by church leaders, including bishops. the highest-ranking clergy in the catholic diocese. one place under scrutiny is buffalo, new york. "60 minutes" has learned the fbi is interviewing church insiders there. buffalo bishop richard malone is accused of allowing priests
7:34 am
accused of sexual abuse to stay on the job. the deacon was the first member to call on the bishop to step down. he spoke with bill whitaker for this sunday's "60 minutes." >> bishop malone called it a crisis. you called it a scandal. what's the difference? >> a crisis is we look at the home and it's burning to the ground. the scandal is you know how to put the fire out but you don't tell me. so you pretend to grieve with me about the fire but the problem is you caused it. >> snider showed us some of the 400 notes and e-mails he has received since calling for the bishop to resign. >> they want to be part of the solution but they think this bishop is preventing that from occurring. >> many are from victims. this month, snider sent letters and documents to prominent bishops, demanding an investigation. why do you have faith that the bishops are going to handle
7:35 am
this? >> well, i don't have faith right now that any particular bishops have the courage to do the right thing. i mean, we all praise our martyrs on sunday and we praise and we sing. but, boy, it sure as hell is hard being a saint when it's your ass on the line and i want the cardinals and bishops to start putting their ass on the line and start protecting their people. >> bishop malone declined "60 minutes" request for an interview. he did speak to buffalo cbs affiliate in an interview that aired last night, saying, in part, i have apologized for mistakes i made in how we handled allegations of a cleric getting involved in misconduct with an adult. i have never, ever knowingly and intentionally left a priest in ministry who i knew had abused a child or moved him from one assignment to another or let him stay in ministry, ever. bill whitaker joins us. good morning. >> good morning. >> what do you make of that
7:36 am
statement? >> we do know that this year, once the allegations have started to percolate in buffalo, the bishop has taken some actions. but we also know from the documents and from our reporting that for years there were priests who had credible accusations of sexual harassment and in one case, statutory rape. and little or nothing was done. and it was only once they started to come to light that the church in buffalo started to take some action. >> well, one of the whistleblowers you talked to was bishop's executive assistant. you don't get much closer to a person than their executive assistant who normally knows everything about what's going on. why did she decide to speak up now? >> she told us that she felt compelled to speak, compelled by her faith and by her religion to
7:37 am
speak up. she went into the job. it was her dream job. she was working for the bishop. she's a very faithful person. and she started to see things that just didn't seem right. >> did she say something to him about it? >> she did. she was getting phone calls from victims. she was answering the phone and she would hear repeatedly of these stories of people who had been abused by priests. she tried to get the bishop to address this. and she also -- she always felt as though she were getting the brushoff. not now, not now. and this went on for a while. and she felt the only way she could handle this was to start to leak this information she had. >> you could sense the anger from the deacon. what finally motivated him to call for the resignation of bishop malone? >> first of all, the information, he didn't know who the whistleblower was.
7:38 am
this information was being revealed on television, in buffalo. one of the priests in the documents was the priest in his parish. and the documents and that evidence about that priest just was -- it was the last straw for him. so he's taken the -- within the catholic church, the extraordinary step of calling for the bishop to resign. >> it's been 16 years since the church scandal in boston that started all of this. the movie "spotlight" if everybody remembers that. what makes this different in terms of what we learned about buffalo? >> what makes this one different is we've got this whistleblower inside who is revealing this information, and the information -- it's hundreds and hundreds of pages of memos, e-mails, personnel files, that show that the church knew that these activities were going on and took steps not to address it
7:39 am
but to, in her words, cover it up. >> i'll be watching on sunday, always. incredible reporting, i know, by you and the producers of "60 minutes." you can see bill's entire report on "60 minutes" this sunday right here on cbs. new research names the most dangerous volcanoes in the u.s. we'll reveal where they are and why scientists are concerned about the threat to people. reat to people. olay deep hydrating eye gel breaks through the competition

>> mine either. good morning. believe it or not, the u.s. is one of the most vol canically active countries in the world. there's a growing risk to lives and property. kilau kilauea's devastating lava flow started in may and didn't stop for weeks. geologists say there are multiple factors that make a volcano like kilauea especially threatening. this is a volcanologist with the u.s. survey. >> volcanos that tend to erupt in a big way and they also tend to be volcanoes that have a lot of people and infrastructure nearby and many airplanes that are typically flying overhead. >> reporter: he is the chief author of a new report that confirms 18 u.s. volcanoes are in that very high threat category. they include four in washington state, including mt. saint helens, which erupted in 1980. there are five in alaska. the redout volcano there sent an

ash cloud 35,000 feet in the air in 1990. it clogged a jet's engines, forcing the plane to make an emergency landing. there are even three very high-risk volcanos in california. when state's lassen peak started erupting, it lasted four three years. while the risks are very high, geologists don't know when the next eruptions will occur. because it's explosive eruptions, we're putting what can be vast amounts of pulver e pulverized rock into the atmosphere and this is going down wind and falling on people and cities and whatnot. >> reporter: different volcanoes pose different threats. while kilauea poured lava for miles, eruptions on the west coast can cause mudflows and spew ash over greater distances. >> because the prevailing winds over north america really blow from west to east, a volcano erupting in the pacific northwest or in california, you know, that can send ash all the way to east coast.
7:46 am
>> part of the importance of the study is so scientists can ask for funding, more monitors in needed areas. without those, they say they might miss early signs a volcano is reawakening with possibly devastating results. >> you can see how wide ranging those results are too. >> really is, especially, as they said, in the northwest, it's very active. >> must be cool to be a volconogist. >> just saying it. >> halloween costume opportunity. >> don, thank you. >> sure. up next, a look at this morning's other headlines, including the dramatic rescue of two women trapped in a burning suv by a polic

with just 11 days before voters head to the polls, we're looking at election security in our series "issues that matter." earlier this year, congress approved $380 million to help safeguard voting systems against cyber attacks. the threats of hacking and continued foreign interference continue to be major concerns. democratic senator warm warner of virginia is a leading voice on election security. he's the vice chair of the senate select committee on intelligence. good morning. thank you so much for joining us. we've learned the u.s. cyber command launched an operation to combat russian interference in our elections and this spreading of misinformation that they are involved in. how effective do you think that will be? >> i want to get to election security but imexpres express s of relief that so far this act of terror has not caused any harm, personal harm, yet. i've been very concerned about the president's tone, not being
8:04 am
willing to call out and call up for that matter the two former presidents who were going to be victims of this kind of attack and one of the things about this president is i don't think he understands that words matter. i was governor of virginia when we had the sniper incidents years ago and how leaders respond in these moments of crisis in reassuring the public and trying to bring us together -- >> because you're on the intelligence committee, you get a lot of briefings. are you convinced they will find this culprit? >> i believe we will. but i think in a time when our political debate has gotten so rough and, frankly, when the president at times calls out and impugns the integrity of the fbi, impugns the integrity of the justice department, in many ways this is an assault on the rule of law and that brings us to the election security piece. >> before you move to that, a lot of people feel the way you
8:05 am
do, that words matter. why don't a group of you all confront him and say mr. president, this is not helping, you have to stop it. so many people come on this program and say exactly what you're saying, this is wrong, this is bad, what are we going to do? it's very tit for tat. but i know there are people who
8:06 am
within question now know this person is in custody. that person, according to our cbs news sources, was taken into custody at this location that you see here. this is near an auto parts store and at an auto parts store. you see in the the middle of your screen and according to investigators it was broward county sheriff's deputies that moved in and made the arrest. it happened in the last few minutes, maybe in the last hour or so at a location near or in plantation, florida, which for any of you who are familiar with that area, there's near ft.
8:07 am
lauderdale and north of miami, florida. investigators are still on the scene. we're told there was some sort of confrontation when the arrest was made. some sort of explosion. it may have been some sort of flash bang which investigators use as they move in on suspects to stun them a little bit, to get them off balance so they can make the arrest. no indication at this point that the suspect, whoever it is, was putting up any sort of resistance. but these are obviously questions that we will continue to ask. but, again, summarizing, one person in custody now confirmed by the department of justice and there is a press conference upcoming at 2:30. >> well, there was a task force in place, a counterterrorism task force, a joint force headq

new york city led by the fbi but you had the atf, the secret service, new york state police, nypd so this was the result of a ton of information sharing. that's why those task forces are so important when it comes to investigations of this scale. as you noted, norah, there were 12 suspicious packages, the latest two coming this morning but throughout the week these suspicious packages were turning up in mail systems across this country confined to washington, d.c., north of new york city and new york city itself, then l.a. as well. but this was a large undertaking, this investigation, led by the feds but, of course, local and state police involved as well. >> all right, jeff pegues, i know you're continuing to do reporting there, we should point out, too, again, this arrest made of one person in florida, remember that all of those 12 packages that were sent were
8:09 am
very similar, they looked similar. they had the six american flag stamps, then they are purportly from debbie wasserman schultz, congressman from florida, her name misspelled there. and yesterday we learned that investigators centered in on south florida. that's where manny bojorquez is today, outside the u.s. mail facility in opa-locka, florida, near miami where there was a search overnight that found that package that was addressed to senator cory booker of new jersey. manny, what can you tell us? >> that's right, norah, for the last 24 hours law enforcement officials have been telling cbs news that they were zeroing in on florida and we found them at this processing center where they were conducting a sweep and that's revealed, the latest package that you talked about, the one addressed to senator booker which we're told has been
8:10 am
rendered safe. this isn't a facility where someone can drop off packages, this is a processing center. everything here appears calm. it looks like workers are able to go in and out so the threat appears to be no longer happening in this area. but clearly just about half an hour from now is where police are concentrating all their efforts right now as they have secured at least one arrest in connection with this case. >> we've been saying all morning, thank you, manny, that we predicted an arrest would happen quickly. there has been a news conference at 12:30 and we'll bring it to you when it happens. coverage will continue throughout the day on this station and our 24 hour streaming network. watch it at and there will be a full wrapup on

and that you woke up this morning to join us so early. 45,000 people watched you live on facebook as you underwent this operation. what made you decide to do it live? it's such a personal move and a personal surgery, obviously. >> for me, it wasn't really a question, it was how i can pay back. so this, to me, was an opportunity to pay it forward to hopefully to reach someone to let them know that this is a journey but you have to be able to take the first step to get tested. and even though it's scary and we know we've met people along the way, we've lost people along this journey, it's doable if you get tested early. >> well, it certainly does send a powerful message, sonia, i marvel and i applaud you for doing this. doctor there are question is for you. have you ever done anything like
8:18 am
this before? i know you've done the surgery, but have you ever done anything lye like th live like this and were you worried if there were complications? >> i would think that tv cameras would make you nervous? >> no, i've never done this before, but this wassing some that i w -- was something i was willing do because social media is to powerful. i took precautions like i do every day. the focus was getting her out of that surgery cancer free. >> did you have any complications? >> absolutely none. >> when you say you want to raise awareness, what do you want people to be more aware about? >> i want them to see this operation and say, wait, i guess i haven't gotten my mammogram in a couple of years and going and getting that. just getting that mammogram is early detection and can help save lives. >> that's such a good point, because october is breast cancer awareness month, it's the reason
8:19 am
i went and got ny mammogram this month. it does help to remind us to help one another. how often should a woman get a mammogram? >> women should start at age 40 for average risk. meaning, that if you don't have a family history of breast cancer or any other high-risk features. and every year they should get a mammogram. now, if you have a family member, a first degree family member who has had breast cancer you go ten years prior to that to start your imaging. >> you also recommend them for men as well? >> well, men should get mammograms if they have a problem, if there's any sort of changes in their breast tissue, they should bring this to the attention of their physician and undergo diagnostic testing. >> sonia, you said with you were doing this to help other
8:20 am
survivors. what's your message? >> get the test in first. this is doable. it's not that -- it's never too late. it's never too late to get the testing, never too late to start. i just wanted to let people know that you don't necessarily need to have a double mastectomy or a mastectomy. there are options, there are more options available now than there were i would say 20 years ago. if you just take that first step and just join the sisterhood, i know that this is a scary moment for a lot of people. >> yes. >> but to just join it, you might -- your friend or your coworker or your mother or sister, just do it to join it. you will learn a lot along the way. >> and you like saying that you had cancer where before you said i have cancer, is that true? >> this is so true. so prior to the surgery i told everyone that i have cancer.
