7:07 am
lieutenant colonel alexander vindman, the top ukraine adviser at the white house, testified that he was so disturbed by the pressure president trump put on the ukrainian president in july that he rushed to white house lawyer john eisenberg's office after the july 25th call. according to the "washington post," vindman told eisenberg that what the president did was wrong. eisenberg proposed moving the call summary to a highly class classified server and restricti restricting access to it. eisenberg is one of three major figures who congressional investigators want to hear from next week. another is the president's former national security adviser, john bolton. according to one former white house official, bolton used the term "drug deal" to describe the pressure put on ukraine to investigate the president's campaign rival, joe biden. >> if indeed what we are -- we have learned is true, he thought this was a drug deal, he thought that mr. giuliani was a hand

in "medical price roulette" we reveal how americans pay different prices for the same procedures. our series is a collaboration with clear health costs. today the last day of breast cancer awareness month, we are looking at the cost of mammograms and followup tests. more than 30 million women will get a mammogram this year, but many tell us that while they thought subsequent tests were free and preventive, they ended up with big, big bills. our consumer investigative correspondent, that's anna werner, is here. nobody likes sticker shock. why is this happening? >> reporter: right. the affordable care act provided for free mammograms every one to two years for women aged 40 and over. but many women are called back for a second look, and some told us they wound up with unexpected bills for hundreds of dollars. in topeka, kansas, sonya johnson says she went for her regular mammogram, then got a call. doctors saw something unusual in the images. >> i kind of panicked like, oh, my gosh. you saw what?
7:33 am
>> reporter: johnson says she has a common condition -- dense breast tissue. the doctors did a followup test. ultrasounds on both breasts. the result -- nothing to worry about health-wise, but financially -- >> i got this huge bill. >> reporter: the bill said she owed $646 for those ultrasounds. >> i didn't even think that i was going to get charged because it's preventive. and you know, my first appointment didn't cost me anything. not even a co-payment. so i'm thinking, you know, they called me, and i wasn't expecting a bill at all. >> reporter: the affordable care act requires many insurance plans to cover mammograms as a preventive benefit every one to two years for women age 40 or older. but about 40% of those women have dense breasts and often need a secondary test their insurance won't pay for. >> i think it's hidden. and i think it needs to be more open and transparent that i need
7:34 am
to know, you know, we're going to have a two part. if we see something, we're going to have to have you come back, and that will cost you. >> reporter: johnson isn't alone with her $646 bill. a woman in maryland told us she wound up paying $350 for additional tests. another in california told us she was charged $912 for an additional test during her routine screening. >> some women are charged for these tests without knowing that it's not covered by their insurer. >> reporter: pat halpin-murphy heads the pennsylvania breast cancer coalition. >> but women want to know whether that anomaly in their breast is breast cancer or not. they say, okay, i'll take the additional screening test. then they get these enormous bills. and they can't pay them. that's unreasonable, and i think unconscionab unconscionable. we want to change that. >> reporter: the coalition says in dense breasts mammograms miss
7:35 am
more than 50% of cancers present. legislation proposed in pennsylvania would require insurers to cover the additional screenings, including ultrasounds and mris for women with dense breasts and others at increased risk for breast cancer. >> if this is my preventive care and it's supposed to be part of my insurance, no, i should not be charged for it. >> reporter: the coalition says cancer is four to fix sometimes more likely in women with extremely dense breasts, and not covering followup tests will cost lives. the organization does offer financial assistance to women in pennsylvania. there are similar groups nationwide. without legislation, insurers may not have to cover these tests. so if you'd like to share the prices you've paid for mammograms and tests or any other medical procedures with us, go to or e-mail >> raising some really important

7:41 am
tens of millions of users and the very different response from linkedin after a similar cyber theft. this comes as two hackers pleaded guilty yesterday. kris van cleave is in washington. what does uber say about this case? >> reporter: well, good morning. when uber finally acknowledged this hack, its new ceo said this never should have happened. but in 2016 when it happened, uber was a very different company. back then executives did not want the data breach to become public so they paid off the hackers and tracked them down, but not to turn them in. prosecutors say uber launch wanted its own version of a manhunt to track down the two 20-something hackers that extorted the company out of $100,000 in exchange for a promise to delete 57 million user files they stole offer a third-party server. the justice department says within weeks of paying the ran some, uber levels showed up at brandon glove's winter park, florida, home and found vasile mereacre at a hotel restaurant
7:42 am
in toronto, canada. the pair admitted their crimes, but uber didn't turn them over to the cops. instead, they had the hackers sign nondisclosure agreements promising to keep quiet. do you feel that uber acted responsibly? >> absolutely not. >> reporter: dave anderson is the u.s. attorney for the northern district of california. have you seen the company ask for an nda from people who ripped them off before? >> i can't think of another case that our office has handled that has that dimension to it. this case is extraordinary in that regard. >> reporter: do you know what was done with that data after they paid? >> not definitively. and there's no way to know definitively. we know that the defendants said that they destroyed that data, but there was a third participant in the hack. and that third participant was unknown to uber. >> reporter: the hackers also targeted a company owned by linkedin it december of 2016, but prosecutors say linkedin did not pay, and promptly reported the hack to police.
7:43 am
uber eventually did, as well. a year after the hack, the new ceo publicly disclosed the attack. we talked to him in 2018. one of your biggest challenges as ceo was coming into a company that had a culture that many thought was broken. and fixing that culture, changing that culture. that's change happened fast enough? >> so i think we've definitely made steps in the right direction, but the work of culture is never done. are we going to make mistakes? up. but are we going to get better every year? absolutely. >> reporter: the two hackers were arrested and pleaded guilty on wednesday to conspiracy to commit extortion. >> uber behaved atrociously. >> reporter: "wired" editor-in-chief nick thompson says with cyber crimes on the rise our personal data remains vulnerable. >> we've come up with all kind of smart ways to protect data, and hackers have come up with all kind of smart ways to get through our protections. your data is held in a bunch of places. each one of those places needs to be secure.
7:44 am
>> reporter: the first time nose two hackers met in person was after they were arrested. they now face a maximum of five years in prison. that third person involved remains at large. now, uber said it cannot comment on an ongoing criminal investigation. last year the company settled with the ftc and paid $148 million to settle a nationwide investigation brought by state attorneys general over this hack. gayle? >> that's a big number. thank you so much. vlad duthiers is looking into the stories we think you'll be talking about today. vlad, what do you think? >> so the deepest shipwreck ever has been discovered. what researchers found more than 20,000 feet below the surface. >> all right. that's a good start. thank you.

in the west. it's thursday, october 31st, 2019. also known as halloween. welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead, firefighters attack dangerous new wildfires east of los angeles. we're on the scene tracking the fast-moving flames. >> plus gayle asked jennifer aniston and reese witherspoon about sharing the tv screen again nearly 20 years after they met. >> and volunteers give kids in wheelchairs a halloween makeover. >> but first, here's today's eye-opener at 8:00. we are following breaking news from southern california.
8:01 am
firefighters are battling two new wildfires that broke out this morning. >> there are still more than 1,000 firefighters working this fire and these high winds are expected to continue until this evening. >> the last time a world series was won in your nation's capitol, calvin coalage was president. cbs didn't exist. >> the first vote on the impeachment inquiry comes as we are learning some new details about the controversial call. >> new video shows the military operation that led to the death of isis leader abu bakr al-baghdadi. >> the exact opposite of facebook's decision, twitter argues political influence should be earned, not bought. >> the president took to twitter to once again rail against the impeachment inquiry and in the tweet he swapped the e in the world republicans with a u. look at this. he wrote rupublicans.
8:02 am
>> of course trump is referring to the stars of the vh-1 hit, rupublicans drag race. >> we've all had typos on twitter. we know what he meant, though. >> that was a good one. >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." powerful santa ana winds are fuelling fires that exploded overnight in southern california. strike teams are battling the hillside fire that's in san bernen dino. it already prompted mandatory evacuations and is threatening homes. an out of control fire in neighboring riverside county has burned at least four buildings. what are you seeing on the ground? >> reporter: for several hours, firefighters will be battling this brush fire here which has already destroyed three homes in this area. the challenge for them right now
8:03 am
is the wind. you can see what the smoke is doing, just drifting everything in this direction. the problem is there are more homes and ranches in that direction. we have seen people evacuating, even taking their horses this morning. now, this is not the only fire that erupted overnight. as you mentioned, another fire has destroyed several homes as well. that one exploded in about 30 minutes to over 200 acres. and of course of the dozen or so fires that have erupted in southern california in the last two days, the one in simi valley has been the largest. that's the one that prompted evacuations of thousands of people and threatened the ronald reagan presidential library and museum. firefighters were able to save that. but as you can see behind me, the fight continues in other communities, those strong santa ana winds are expected to diminish throughout the day, but no one is letting their guard down right now. >> thank you very much. if you heard some cheering last night, here's why. the last time washington had a
8:04 am
world series winner, it was the original senators ba. the nationals knocked off the houston astros last night in game seven to claim their first title. major league baseball's new champion had a record of just 19 wins and 31 losses back on may 23rd, but from then on the nats won more games than any other team. we're outside nationals park in washington. ed, i hope you didn't hurt yourself with the baby shark last night. were you out late celebrating? >> we were up late celebrating and we found a few fans that are also celebrating this morning. you know, the nationals have only been in town since 2005. before that they were the mon y monday monday
8:05 am
montreals. amazingly, this was the first time a road team won every game in the series. starting pitchers steven strasburg who was a free ajtage was named world series mvp. consider the story of will thomas, his parents started taking him to nationals games when he was 3 months old. last night our cameras caught up with him and his mom. he's now 14 and he was at a watch party just outside the stadium celebrating the big win. one of the most striking things we've seen here in washington over the last few days is what has been going on over at the washington national cathedral, which was bathed in the team color and logo. and after the game last night the cathedral tweeted we don't give thanks for winning a ball game but for the nationals bringing joy and unity to a city in desperate need of both. i think all of us would agree that is something we could use
8:06 am
around here. so these folks, by the way, are in a choir. we're going to tell their story online so people can check that. but they've been out here this morning helping all of us celebrate and we thank you for that. >> very cool, ed. and fans can have an influence in the outcome of a game. we've been following your twitter feed and we know you've been rocking red ties for every game of the series. maybe you should have been the mvp. i think you could have altered the outcome. >> or at least ride on the float with the team. >> that would be nice. >> pick up the phone, washington nationals. >> for someone who flunked out of little league, i was glad to help. >> congrats. it's a great story. happy for you guys. >> enjoy the celebration. the house takes a significant step this morning to lay out the next steps of the impeachment inquiry into the president. lawmakers will vote on a resolution to set up procedures for public hearings by the house intelligence committee and the release of transcripts from
8:07 am
closed-door depositions. it also directs the intelligence committee to commit its findings to the house judiciary committee, which would approve any articles of impeachment. the measure is expected to pass with nearly all democrats voting yes and nearly all republicans voting no. nancy is outside the house chamber. if the resolution does pass, what is the next step? >> reporter: we're looking at about another week of depositions behind closed doors before we move to the public phrase, public hearings in the house intelligence committee, and the goal of those hearings would essentially be for democrats to tell a story to the american people, to lay out what they have learned. so they're not looking to hold weeks of public hearings, just a few big players who they think will be clear and compelling and can share with the american people what they witnessed. >> if john bolton does testify, how significant would that be? >> reporter: very significant, because he's someone who doesn't
8:08 am
mince words and we know from the testimony of others that he was concerned by what he described as a drug deal, basically the pressure campaign being put on ukraine to investigate the president's campaign rival, joe biden. and so while he has said that he's not going to testify voluntarily, his lawyer says he's standing by for a subpoena compelling him to testify and democrats will be glad to hand that over. >> nancy, thank you. cbs news will have a special report later this morning with the outcome of that vote on the house impeachment resolution, and tonight house speaker nancy pelosi will be with stephen colbert to talk about the vote. >> i'm going to set my dvr for that one. actor cuba gooding jr. is facing an allegation of sexual

tennis champion serena williams is a powerhouse when it comes to her sport and her fashion line and motherhood. she's also using her status as a force for good. williams is now the national ambassadorus issue that's
8:20 am
affected a close friend of hers. our national correspondent, jericka duncan, spoke to williams about this issue. jericka, good morning. what did you learn? >> good morning, i learned that this is an issue that a lot of people don't talk about. the network to end domestic violence says financial abuse occurs in nearly all domestic violence cases. a fact that got the attention of serena williams who's lending her voice to a campaign about the warning signs. >> serena williams! >> reporter: she's fierce on the court with a nearly 25-year professional tennis career that includes 23 grand slam singles titles and four olympic gold medals. but serena williams, one of th most successful female athletes in the world, is giving voice to an issue rarely talked about. >> i had no idea what financial abuse was when i read that 99% of domestic violence cases do involve financial abuse. i felt like that was a really, really high number, and it's
8:21 am
shocking. >> reporter: financial abuse is defined as an abuser taking control of finances to prevent the other person from leaving to maintain power in a relationship. williams says she's seen the impact. not for herself but through a friend. >> a close friend of mine was going through a situation that wasn't really healthy for her, wasn't healthy for her friends or her family. and it was difficult to tell her. then i realized, look, my goodness, she's -- all the signs that i was learning about with financial abuse, she was involved in. it was really intense. your partner takes credit cards out in your name and maxes them out. that's a sign. >> reporter: williams teamed up with the all-state foundation to release an ad called "signs" to help educate people about financial abuse. >> when i was married, i wasn't allowed to control the money. so i didn't have access to the checking account. >> reporter: shelly devito says she knows the signs firsthand. for 17 years she was married to
8:22 am
a man she says financially abused her. >> i had to get permission to buy groceries, i was told what stores to go to to buy various items. i had to turn in the receipt when it was given to me. >> reporter: the preschool teacher rarely told anyone. >> any time i said anything, people would say, did he hit you? he doesn't hit you, so it does make you feel shame. it makes you think, well, maybe it's not that bad. >> reporter: she says it was her children that gave her the courage to leave. >> my kids were 11 and 14 at the time. and i was like, what am i showing my 14-year-old son? i didn't want him to think that this is how a man treats a woman. i didn't want my daughter to think that this is what we do, that we're us submifssive to a . >> reporter: she took him to court, and he denied the allegations in court filings. >> financial abuse is one of the main reasons victims of domestic violence can't leave.
8:23 am
>> reporter: over three million children will witness domestic violence. how important is that when you think about your own family, when you think about your role as a mother and putting your voice behind a cause like this? >> i feel like a responsibility to make people know more about things like financial abuse. and how to avoid it. like, i want to teach my daughter everything about it. and if i have more kids, if i have a boy, i want to teach him about it so he is not a part of the problem and only adds to the solutions. >> i do have more times now where i feel strong and empowered by my choices. >> reporter: devito shares her story with domestic violence survivors, many of whom have experienced financial abuse. >> when you feel invalidated, disrespected, afraid, silenced, verbally, emotionally, sexually, financially, physically abused, it's not a healthy relationship, and you need to leave for yourself, for your children, and for your life. >> jericka joins us at the table. a powerful piece. i don't think a lot of people have heard this term, financial abuse. what should they know about it? what are the red flags? >> a lot of these start off
8:24 am
subtly. it's not something that maybe would be a red flag. you know, someone's kind of monitoring the money or handling the finances. it really comes down to control. so maybe making sure you don't have access to certain accounts or even prohibiting you from going to school. it's a power dynamic in the same way that domestic violence is. >> i would bet some people can be financially abused and don't even know they're being financially abused because they're thinking he or she is just -- cares about me and is taking good care of me. >> correct. i think when we look historically, 50 years ago, that was the case with, you know, a lot of families, a lot of men were taking that lead. now allstate's purple purse initiative is providing domestic abuse survivors with a step-by-step financial empowerment curriculum. if you or someone you know
8:25 am
report. the historic house vote on the impeachment resolution, i am norah o'donnell in washington. members of congress are voting on a resolution backing an impeachment investigation of president trump. the heistory of this, only two other modern presidents have faced such a vote. this is not a vote on actual articles of impeachment but it's the first opportunity for house members to go on the record yes or no. what does this resolution do? it's important. it sets the rules for the road, the next stage of the inquiry, including the first public hearings -- that's right, public hearings, where members will question witnesses. we know the democrats have launched the inquiry a month ago after learning of the phone call when president trump asked ukraine's president to investigate democrats, including potential 2020 rival, joe biden
8:26 am
and his son. nancy cordes is capitol hill this morning and we have coverage at the white house. nancy, this is really a historic marker from both sides of the party. >> reporter: it is, norah. at this point we can now say it appears the democrats do have the vote to pass this resolution. almost all of the democrats had signaled beforehand they were going to vote yes, and almost all republicans voting no. what does this resolution do? as you said it essentially establishes the procedures for the next public phase of this inquiry. how are the public hearings going to work? how much time will lawmakers have time to ask questions, and how will the president's lawyers be able to participate? how do you get all of the evidence from the house's intelligence committee that has been holding closed door hearings, and at the end of the
8:27 am
day it would craft actual articles of impeachment in it comes to that. democrats claim they did not need to do this vote today but are doing so out of an interests in transparency, and republicans argue they are retroactively trying to make this a process -- >> sphronancy pelosi is providi over the vote today. we have heard the republicans today, including the republican leader in the house decry what he called soviet-style rules, as if the rules are going to be unfair to the democrats. can you fact check that for us? what is the truth? >> reporter: the truth is the democrats say they are giving republicans the same rights that the minority party has had in previous impeachment proceedings, but republicans say
8:28 am
practically they are not ending up with much. for instance, democrats in this resolution layout the possibility for republicans to submit in writing which witnesses they would like to hear from. that's typically a right that the minority party does not have, but the resolution also says democrats can deny those witnesses if they don't believe they would add anything to the process. so the house minority leader, kevin mccarthy, norah, as you pointed out, he said that's like granting the first amendment rights to the minority, but saying you only get those rights we agree with, and the republicans say the president's lawyers will have an opportunity to examine the witnesses, and that right could be taken away if the president doesn't cooperate with the inquiry, and there's no indication the white house plans to cooperate at this
8:29 am
point. >> all right. here is the speaker of the house about to gavel. >> does any member wish to change a vote? >> there you hear the speaker of the house, and what speaker pelosi said what this does is -- >> on this vote, the nays 232, and the resolution is adopted without objection the motion to reconsider is laid upon the table. >> so there you see this vote passed as the democrats control the house of representatives and have voted overwhelmingly to begin this process for open hearings and nancy is with us on the hill, and she's made the point, the speaker of the house, it allows the american people to
8:30 am
see the truth. thus far this investigation has been behind closed doors which is consistent with how impeachment enquiries have happened in the past. just break down for everybody, many of the witnesses, their testimony has been consistent, correct, even those that have worked how white house? >> it has been remarkably consistent, norah. we have seen more than a dozen individuals, some of them very high ranking going behind closed doze for in some cases day-long depositions, and while we don't know the details of what was discussed what we have learned from sources on the right and left is what they have been saying largely tracks, for example, many of them have said they were aware that the president's personal attorney, rudy guiliani, undertook a month's long campaign to try and pressure ukrainian leaders to open an investigation into the president's campaign rival, joe biden, and his son, hunter
8:31 am
biden, who sat on the board of a ukrainian energy company. that's one example of many ways in which what these witnesses have said, some of them quite loyal to the president, and others career foreign service officers and it really tracks and it has made it more and more difficult for many republicans to defend the president on the merits, to argue that he did nothing wrong, which is something that he has been urging them to do more forcefully in resent days. >> that's an excellent point, nancy. there has been a lot of talk about a so-called quid pro quo, but i think it's also important to point out that the law is pretty clear on foreign interference in elections, and it's illegal for any person to saw l solicit, accept anything in connection to the u.s. election and the charge against the president of the united states
8:32 am
was he was inviting foreign interference into the election from the ukrainian president. republicans said they wanted a vote to formalize the impeachment process, so isn't that what this process does? >> it depends on who you ask. the president was seeking an up or down vote, and you talk to republicans and they say the rules on this are not what we would like, and as you heard, kevin mccarthy and others saying it was a soviet-style inquisition and not representing due process. everything here on capitol hill is political and it depends on what side of the aisle you sit on. >> just to fact check, are they soviet-style rules or similar to the ones provided for nixon and clinton? >> they vary, but they are similar in this regard, there will be public hearings and both sides of the aisle will be able to present evidence and ask for
8:33 am
witnesses in the committee, and part of what had to happen today, norah, and why they had to do it, it's a housekeeping move, they had to move all of the evidence and depositions compiled by the three committees going on behind closed doors and allow for them to be transferred to the judiciary committee that will hold the hearings on articles of impeachment, and it was a housekeeping move and critical move. >> how quickly could we see the public hearings? >> that remains to be seen. there are days on the legislative calendar just before thanks giving in november, and a handful after thanksgiving and the running theory is this will last a few days, not several weeks, because democrats understand that they have the evidence, thanks to the witnesses that have come forward, and the political will to do this exists based on polling across the countries, americans saying they want this to proceed and they will try to move it quickly. >> ed o'keefe, who noted this
8:34 am
morning, much of the town, washington celebrating the national's winning the world series victory, so a great deal of joy in the town, and at the same time a historic vote to move forward on these public phases of the impeachment of the president of the united states, and also happening on halloween. our coverage will continue on our 24-hour streaming network, cbsn. you can watch it on our cbs news app. we will have much more of your local news on this cbs station, and we have a full wrap-up tonight on the cbs evening news. this has been a cbs news special report. i am norah o'donnell, cbs news, washington sz. . started started coming out within the news world. and then we just were like, we have to do this.
8:35 am
we have to address it. >> cue her -- >> i am bringing sad and upsetting news -- >> the male anchor played by steve carell is fired for allegations of sexual misconduct. we all know there's a big old elephant on the couch because cbs was part of the me too movement. none of us thought we would be there either. here we are. when this happened and stories started breaking, did you go "i can't believe in is happening as we're doing this," because it does change the game. >> it did completely. we had to pause and kind of rethink and regroup. and it was very important how we sort of hit this in terms of tone. to not try to take any sides or be too black and white. >> for a second look at the larger context of #metoo. i feel like people are screaming for an honest conversation. >> i think this is happening in real life. men are looking at each other saying i wasn't as bad as that guy. what is the message if any that the show is trying to send about
8:36 am
