it was john his first time and i was very impressed. you did face it head-on with a good challenge. a great team here. >> you guys are tough this morning. good morning to you our viewers in the west, and welcome to "cbs this morning." i'm gayle king with anthony mason and tony dokoupil. new witness, a second whistle-blower claims to have firsthand knowledge of president trump's phone call with ukraine. w it could undermine mr. trump's strategy. fleeing justice. an american diplomat's wife left britain after she was implicated in a deadly car crash. now the victim's family is calling for her to return. chilling confessions.

top. >>ant to go. it's monday, october 7th, 2019. here is today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> people around the president are watching what is happen and our r finally saying, my god, this cannot happen anymore. they are coming forward. >> a second whistle-blower claims firsthand knowledge of the president's ukraine call. >> there can be no valid impeachment process unless the president can confront the witnesses against him. who are these people? where did they come from? a major policy shift. the white house says turkey will move forward with its long-planned military operation into northern syria. a manhunt is underway for one of two suspects wanted in a bar shooting in kansas city that left four people dead. >> there was no getting out of the way. it felt like i got hit by a damn bus. police are searching for the shooter who killed a key witness in the murder trial of amber guyger. >> was this related to the trial?
there's no clear indication. more than 100 people have died and thousands have been injured in anti-government protests in iraq. in california, five people were hurt after a series of explosions in an electrical vault during an oktoberfest celebration. all that -- >> a deer bolts through the window of a hair salon on long island. talk about a hire-rising surprise. simone biles is making history again with two moves have that never been done before. and all that matters -- >> touchdown! >> big win for the oakland raiders in london. >> you think joe gruden is happen for his guys? >> i don't know how disco, but let's start dancing. on "cbs this morning" -- >> hit it hair! >> the gender reveal party that did not go as planned. that was one tough balloon. at first he could not break it,
>> oh, my god! [ laughter ] >> let the doctor tell the baby's gender. come on. >> it used to be you'd wait and see, oh it came out -- oh, it's a boy or girl. >> always going to be a reveal. doesn't have to be a balloon. >> one two of choices. welcome to "cbs this morning." we're going to begin with this -- dramatic new development could threaten one of president trump's defenses in the house impeachment inquiry. another second whistle-blower has come forward having to have firsthand knowledge of the president's july 25th phone call with the president of ukraine. >> a lawyer for the new whistle-blower said the person made a protected disclosure and cannot be retaliated against. the president brushed it off saying "keep 'em coming." weijia jiang at the white house. does the new whistle-blower change he president's approach to the impeachment inquiry? doesn't sound like it. >> reporter: good morning.
are you right. the president's personal tells cbs news that this does not change their legal strategy, and the white house press secretary says it doesn't matter how many people come forward as whistle-blowers because president trump did nothing wrong. for democrats, this means another key witness as they build their case for impeachment. the new whistle-blower could blow up president trump's main argument against the original whistle-blower. >> the whistle-blower never saw the conversation. he got his information i guess second or thirdhand. >> reporter: the white house has argued that whistle-blower number one is not credible because he or she said in a formal complaint, "i was not a direct witness to most of the events described." instead, multiple officials recounted fact patterns that were consistent with one another. >> in other words, she didn't know i was on the call. no. these are bad people, dishonest people. >> reporter: the latest person calling out the president apparently has firsthand knowledge of the july 25th phone
call in which mr. trump asked ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky to investigate unsubstantiated claims against joe biden and his son, hunter. democrats say for dirt to use in his re-election campaign. congressman jim himes is on the house intelligence committee. >> people around the president, professionals who are in the oval office who are in the situation room, are watching what is happening and are finally saying, my god, this cannot happen anymore. >> reporter: while he continues to publicly describe his conversation with zelensky as perfect, cbs news has learned in private president trump is playing the blame game telling republican lawmakers he only called by energy secretary rick perry asked him to. >> not once, not once, as god is my witness, not once was a biden name, not the former vice president, not his son, ever mentioned. >> reporter: in a statement, perry's spokesperson said that these absolutely encouraged and supported president trump to talk to zelensky about energy, security, and economic development. now the democrats have subpoenaed him for documents related to communications and
travel to u.k. it's part of the bigger effort to get information from the white house and the committees that issued that subpoena set a deadline, anthony, for october 18th. >> all right. thank you. if the house does impeach president trump, the republican-controlled senate will decide if he should be removed from office. so far, three republican senators have raised concerns over the president's contacts with foreign leaders, and there does not seem to be a unified defense of mr. trump. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. what are you hearing? >> reporter: privately some republicans tell us that they just don't feel it's worth it to take the president on. first of all, because he hits back, and second of all, because his approval rating within the republican party is still quite high. 87%, according to the latest gallup poll taken as this controversy unfolded. >> i hope this will be done with the seriousness that any impeachment proceeding deserves. >> reporter: senator susan
collins of maine is one of the few republicans willing to call the president out, telling the "bangor daily news," "i thought the president made a big mistake by asking china to get involved in investigating a political opponent." >> china should start an investigation into the bidens. >> reporter: nebraska republican ben sasse responded, "americans don't look to chinese commies for truth." utah's mitt romney called the president's plea "wrong and appalling." president trump responded by calling romney a pompous ass and a bunch of other things. most republicans have downplayed president trump's actions or stayed silent. defending him has gotten more difficult. >> reporter: you don't take the president at his word? >> no. the president loves to go out on the white house -- i haven't talked to him about this. what the president was thinking, but i know he loves to bait the press. >> i'm asking a simple question
about you clearly were upset that somehow there was an implication that military aid was being frozen because the president wanted an investigation. why did you wince? >> because i didn't want those connected. when i asked the president about that, he completely denied it. he adamantly denied it. >> reporter: a congressional source tells cbs news that gordon sondland, the u.s. ambassador to the european union, will come to capitol hill tomorrow to sit for a deposition. sondland is one of several people whose text messages reveal how much pressure was being placed on the ukrainians to agree to investigate not just the bidens but the origins of the russia investigation, potentially in exchange for military aid to ukraine. tony? >> we hear that leaf blower in the background. at least something's getting done in washington. thank you so much. we're following breaking news from syria in a major u.s. policy shift this morning. american troops are pulling back to make way for turkey's planned
invasion of part of northern syria. video out this morning shows american forces leaching an area a-- leaving an area along turkey's border. turkey is targeting key american allies in the fight against isis. the abrupt change follows a phone call last night between president trump and turkey's president. holly williams has reported throughout the region. the big question -- first of all, great to have you at the table. >> thank you. they look poised to be in an armed conflict with turkey. that doesn't look good right off of the bat. this is a complicated part of the world. when the u.s. when looking for an ally, the sdf was the only one. they lost they say around 11,000 fighters in that fight against isis, but turkey was saying this
is a terrible idea. so it is not just these two allies, but the sdf are feeling so betrayed and they're making it clear they feel betrayed and they say why should we keep fighting isis on behalf of the u.s. we'll look after our own interests, not yours. how are lawmakers reacting to this country? >> we heard this morning from senator lindsey graham. he has been a huge supporter of the u.s. relationship with the kurds in syria. i interviewed him last year and he tweeted this decision is a disaster in the making. it ensures an isis come back and that it will be a stain on america's honor. they were paid passive amounts
of money to do so and that it is time to get out of these ridiculous endless wars. >> very unusual for lindsey g m graham to go against the president on these days. >> yes, but he has. first that america has to stand by the allied in the mies in th east, the president saying we have to get out at any cost. >> thank you, glad to see you in person. >> iraq's prime minister says he has been talking to mike pompeo about the deadly iraq protests. new clashes in eastern baghdad. more than 100 people have been killed in the past week and more than 6,000 have been injured. the week long demonstrations mark the most serious demonstrations in iraq since the country declared victory over isis. that was two years ago. a man hunt is intensifying in kansas for one of two
suspects in a deadly shooting at a crowded bar. they say the man is armed an dangerous. they announced the arrest of alatorre overnight. they're accused of killing four and wounding five others early sunday morning. david begnot is outside of the bar and you spoke with an injured? >> yes, and he still hat a bullet in a muscle in his back. there is candles back here, the bar has a sign that says security cameras in kruse, and those cameras were instrumental in identifying the shooters. the bar is described to us as a hole in the wall. there was only able out 40 peop inside. when the gunman walked in the bar, he walked in, pointed his gun, and sprayed the room with gunfire. >> it fell like i was hit by a
bus. >> among the five people injured with a bullet still lodged in his shoulder. the gunmen killed four men. >> what happened? >> i there was with my cousin and we were just standing there playing pool. i was standing up against the wall, and i just heard about hour shots. i turned over to the right. i saw it pointing at me and i tried to turn but there was no getting out of the way. it went into my back and hit my shoulder blade and fractured my shoulder blade. >> the first suspect you see here got into an argument. earlier that evening the bartender told him to leave. >> that man returned hours later with an accomplice. both armed with handguns. they identified the suspects as
javier aletorre. >> they just looked for who they were looking for and they started shooting. >> emotions were krau. >> one of the guys they was playing tool with died. >> can you describe what it was like? >> horrifying. the screams afterwards is like something you usually watch in a movie. >> two of them are mexican nationals that died. >> i wonder if it would have made a difference. >> the key witness in a murder trial is now dead and police are trying to find out who killed
him. joshua brown, botham jean's neighbor, died, and police are trying to find out who was responsible for the murder. what are authorities saying about this latest death? >> reporter: dallas police are saying they're investigating the shooting from friday night at this apartment complex behind me. so far they don't have any motives and do not have any suspects. now the attorney for botham jean's family is also the attorney for the brown family. and he tells me that hislit should have been protected after testifying in the amber guyger murder trial. on the witness stand, joshua brown recalled feeling startled when he heard the gunshots that would ultimately take botham jean's life. now the jean family and their attorney, lee merritt, are demanding answers. >> a key witness suddenly be killed is suspicious. was this related to the trial? there's no clear indication of
that. >> reporter: joshua brown took the stand in guyger's trial and gave emotional testimony about the night botham jean was killed last september. brown said he was in the hallway when he heard the two gunshots. >> could you tell if one of the bosses was giving lawsuit commands like "stop, police," or anything of that nature? >> yeah, but not -- that wasn't what they were saying. >> be advised, does look like we have one on the ground. >> reporter: the shooting that killed brown happened at a different apartment complex from the one where guyger and jean lived. witnesses described hearing several gunshots friday and seeing a silver four-door sedan speedsing away -- speeding away from the parking lot. merritt said brown was scared someone was after him after he was involved in a separate shooting incident in dallas. did he fear for his life related to this case or anything else in general? >> he had been shot less than a year ago, and someone standing near him was killed. he was relctant to testify in this case because he had been shot at. and he thought some people might
want him -- to do harm to him. >> reporter: is there anything police department could have offered, any protection? >> if he had concerns for his safety, the city, the county had an obligation to ensure that those concerns were met. >> reporter: brown was working in roofing and property management at the time of his death. now, the jean family has filed a civil suit against the city of dallas in the death of their son, botham jean. and merritt tells me that joshua brown would have been one of the first witnesses called to testify in that case. tony? >> it is suspicious. thank you so much. former president jimmy carter says he's okay after falling at his home in georgia yesterday. mr. carter, who turned 95 last week, needed 14 stitches to close a cut. he and his wife, rosalyn, still attended a concert and ceremony in nashville last night where the former president wore a bandage above his black eye. he spoke to volunteers ahead of a habitat for humanity

the protesters have been fighting for weeks against interference from china's central government. in response to the tweet, multiple chinese businesses immediately suspended relations with the team in an attempt to calm relations the nba released a statement saying the league recognizes the tweet deeply offended many but added the league supports individuals sharing their views on matters important to them. u.s. politicians on both sides of the aisle slammed the nba for bowing to pressure from china. republican senator ted cruz tweeted, human rights shouldn't be for sale. presidential candidate julian castro said china is using its economic power to silence critics, even those in the u.s. >> certainly seems like they're right. the follow-up tweet from morey was, oh, i was just one guy with one perspective. i've been learning a lot about a complicated situation. >> the rockets have been popular in china since yao ming played for them back in 2002 he
arrived. >> that's right. and the nba is hugely popular in china overall. >> this is a big mket for them. >> indeed. >> it's complicated. >> very complicated. disney world was not such a magical kingdom -- >> not so complicated. >> not very complicated to understand. here's what happened -- passengers aboard a new aerial cable car system that opened last weekend got stuck saturday night some 30 feet off the ground. it took firefighters about three hours to rescue them. stranded passengers tweeted photos of gondolas that crashed into each other, some complained that officials did not communicate what was going on. there were no reported injuries. there were no reported injuries. disney released a statement saying in part, we apologize for this situation and we are working with each guest individually regarding impacts to their visit with us. but pretty scary. three hours up there. >> the gondola seems too complicated by half -- let's improvise. >> three hours stuck in a gondola, not my idea of a good time. >> disney will make it right. >> i'm sure they will. >> they say -- everybody free passes. this story is mind-boggling. passengers on a delta airlines
flight in orlando got stuck in a different way. e problem there -- a fellow passenger who refused to move from her seat. delta says a woman was able to board the plane without a ticket on saturday. another passenger said the woman was in her assigned seat, so she called the flight attendant over. the woman in the seat said she threw her ticket away and did not have identification. she was reportedly cursing when police removed her. delta apologized for the three-hour delay and explained that everyone on board had to be rescreened. luggage, too. the tsa says the woman without a ticket did go through security. >> how was she able to do that? >> how did she get through security? >> it's not clear yet. >> there are so many questions here and they're all really alarming. >> when she said, can we see the photo id, she showed them a picture of herself on her phone. really strange. pretty crazy. all right. when you walk around new york city, it's not surprising to see people dressed in unusual clothing. this past weekend, there was no shortage of the unusual. actually for me it was very

secretary says it doesn't matter how many people come forward as whistle-blowers since president trump did nothing wrong. >> some republicans say it's just not worth it to take him often if if they disapprove of his actions. he hits back. >> what does this mean for the fight against isis? >> america's most important ally on the ground in the fight against isis looks like it's about to get involved in an armed conflict with turkey, an american nato ally. america's latest mass shooting happened in a heavily hispanic neighborhood here in kansas city, kansas. he walked in the bar and started spraying the room. the attorney for botham jean's family is also the attorney for the brown family. he tells me his client should have been protected after testifying in the amber guyger murder trial. christian mccaffrey with a monster game for the carolina panthers. superman in overdefenders. touchdown! >> what can't mccaffrey not do
at this point? i've run out of words to describe him. >> there he goes! it's a singular attack! mccaffery pulled away -- his third touchdown! >> listen, even if you're not a football fan, you've got to admit that was impressive. very well done. welcome back to "cbs this morning". the emergence of a second whistle-blower gives democrats new ammunition in their impeachment inquiry of president trump. a lawyer says the new disclosure includes firsthand think of the allegations made in the initial whistle-blower report. now this could damage the president's plan at that original whistle-blower does not have direct knowledge of the phone calls with ukraine's president that led to the inquiry. >> senate majority leader mitch mcconnell says impeachment will not succeed in the senate under his watch. he made the statement in a campaign fund-raising ad on facebook. >> nancy pelosi is in the clutches of a left wing mob. they finally convinced her to impeach the president. all of you know your constitution. the way that impeachment stops
is when a senate majority with me as majority leader. >> mcconnell did say last week he would have no choice but to hold a senate trial if the house votes to impeach the president. today is the first day of the supreme court's new term. the justices are set to take on a series of controversial topics. chief legal correspondent jan crawford is at the supreme court. jan, what are the big issues the courts are going to address this term? >> reporter: i mean, this is shaping up to be one of the most contentious supreme court terms in years. they are taking up almost every hot-button issue that's out there. you've got abortion, gay rights, gun rights, immigration. they're going to jump right into it starting tomorrow with a big case that looks at whether federal law protects gays, lesbians, transgender people, from discrimination on the job. in the months to come, they'll look at whether or not states can put more regulations on abortion clinics. whether states can make it more difficult for legal gun owners to take their guns outside their homes. they're going to look at
president trump's efforts to end that obama-era program that protects the so-called dreamers. those people that came to the united states illegally as children. all of those cases. they're probably going to be decided right in the middle of this election year, early spring, early summer. >> you mentioned gay rights. this is the first time the courts can hear gay rights cases since the retirement of justice kin dee who the the swing vote on this issue. who are you going to be looking at on the court at this point? >> reporter: i mean, this is a different court. it's going to potentially be a more conservative court. we'll get a lot of clues this term because of the line of these cases. just bret kavanaugh replacing justice kennedy. justice kennedy was a conservative, but he would sometimes vote with liberals on some of those social issues, particularly gay rights but also abortion. so the question is, is justice kavanaugh going to see those cases in a more conservative way that would shift the balance of the court more to the right on some of these social issues.
the chief justice, john roberts, also someone that we're going to be looking at. with the liberals on some ho b cases like, for example, obamacare. so will he move from that conservative camp? i mean, obviously it's still 5-4. you've got the five conservatives and the four liberals. but some of these cases, they'll go back and forth. this term will give us a lot of clues about what this court is going to look like going forward. >> jan crawford at the supreme court. thanks, jan. a massive new movie studio, did you hear about this, just opened in atlanta over the weekend. not in hollywood. it belongs to tyler perry. ahead, the entertainment mogul and mogul is the word tells us how tyler perry studios will make sure that everybody is represented on screen and behind the scenes. this is major. >> good monday morning, with a spare the air alert and effect

>> you co-founded the legal defense fund. raised over $24 million. what's it being used to? >> it's to help victims of sexual harassment. so many have actually no recourse to legal services, especially low-income women. they can't find lawyers to represent them when they've been sexually harassed. they can't find p.r. support when their names start appearing in the news. we've been able to help over 3,600 individuals in the last two years who have come forward. and a lot of them -- two-thirds are low-income women. they come from every industry in the country. >> wow. you mentioned changing workplace culture. your law firm, you were part of the group focused on that at your law firm -- >> i did. i started it. >> what did you learn from that effort that you can take forward? >> what i learned is this is what's happened in the last two years since the first articles. there is -- companies coming forward with a willingness that has never happened before to actually think about these issues. they see the risk to their companies if they don't address these issues. they also see the benefits. and so i've seen an openness by
companies, but here's the thing -- they actually don't know what to do. and that's why one of the things we're excited about in conjunction with my announcement is to announce melinda gate has given us a generous donation to start an impact lab -- >> what's the definition of generous? >> well, it's -- a lot. it's a lot. >> i heard an "m." i think i heard an "m." >> it's a lot. the first of what we hope will be more because we need to build research and data. we don't know what works. >> with these always comes criticisms because it's been two years since the organization was launched. there are grumblings that it's become cliquey, disorganized, women are using it as a networking opportunity. are you the new sheriff in town. what do you have to say about the concerns? >> actually, it's not just been that. we've been active with the time's up legal defense fund, active in advocating for policy change. a couple of weeks ago, folks from time's up were with
