7:11 am
passed the two articles of impeachment against president donald trump by party line votes of 23-17. the first article abuse of power, the second obstruction of congress. nancy cordes is outside the hearing room. nancy. >> well major, this is a historic moment, the first time in two decades the house judiciary committee approved articles of impeachment against a sitting president. what this means is that these two articles, abuse of power and obstruction of congress will now go to the full house for a vote. most likely next wednesday. while we do expect a small handful of democratic defections it will not be enough to prevent the house from passing the articles of impeachment. and so president donald j. trump will be impeached by the house. >> nancy, i want to ask you, because it strikes me here in new york but i believe it has to strike threw how different the atmosphere was this morning,
7:12 am
almost -- i don't want to overdescribe this but it seemed like grim resignation on the part of everyone. democrats and republican. yesterday and yesterday evening at each other's throats, rhetorically at least. there seemed to be a sense not only of the heft of the moment but a resignation that it comes to this point. >> resignation and exhaustion, major because they argued 14 hours yesterday because they exhausted all the arguments yesterday petition they went round and round hours and hours making the same points. both sides said everything there was to say. there was a lot of bruised feelings after the debate was abruptly cut off by the chair last night. and so everyone came back this morning knowing what was going to happen, knowing it was basically preordained, got the vote over with and now they will take the bruised feelings pack them up and head home for the weekend. >> there is phrase in washington
7:13 am
everything has been said it just isn't everyone had a chance to say it. yesterday everyone said it three or four times over. i also want to talk to you a little bit about something going on around impeachment briefly. for the country is may seem nothing else is going on. yet other things are happening. trade deal, national defense reauthorization act. something with prescription drug costs. talk to our audience about things happening that don't involve impeachment. >> right, there was a very momentous agreement this week between democrats and the white house and mexico and canada. a new trade agreement that will be voted on by the house on a bipartisan basis next week. and then it will go to the senate. but, mayorum, you cannot ignore the shadow tasked by impeachment on in capitol. the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell says he can't take up the trade deal until after he gets through impeachment in the senate. so we do expect that the senate will come back in january, will hold a trial, the senate
7:14 am
majority leader himself is now openly trying to convince the president is talking about it on television, hoping that the president will hear him that a shorter trial would be best both for the president and for the process. so perhaps a week or two before he can move on to those bipartisan legislative priorities tliek that trade deal. >> nancy, thanks so much. at the white house. one of the issues weja is the context of the trial. i want i don't want to jump ahead of the process but that's a hot topic of conversation at the white house. >> it is, major. even though we are learning there is disagreement between what the legal team wants and what president trump has publicly said he is most demanding, because he believes it will help his ris case. the president has said he wants to see live witnesses on the stand. he believes that will bolster his case in the court of public opinion, allow the republicans to play this out again, and he
7:15 am
will be exonerated. but his legal team doesn't agree fully. because when you put witnesses on the stand, major, there is always a risk. you don't know exactly what they're going to say. and sources at the white house point to what happened when acting chief of staff mick mulvaney spoke before reporters and made several mistakes. and he still to this day has to answer to those. and so, you know, another point they continue to make and see the president can say what he wants all day long. but it's not up to him. this is going to be a decision that senate majority leader mitch mcconnell makes, of course, with other senators, with his caucus. and they will set the parameters of a trial. and the thinking is, look, if we already know the end result because of simple math, then what's the point of play going out? because by the way during the trial democrats will have another chance to present their side of the story as well. but regardless of whether there
7:16 am
is a trial or not, one thing will stay the same, and that is what the president continues to say to the american people. i saw you this morning providing analysis and you are right. he is hammering home the same points over and over and over. and republican strategists believes that they are succeeding in painting in entire process as a partisan stunt as an attempt by the democrats to undermine in presidency. and both sources in the campaign and at the white house confidently tell me they really believe mr. trump is going to become the first impeached president to ever win re-election. of course that is a long way from now. but they really believe that this is helping their case. >> and we use this phrase weija historic all the time. and maybe some of the viewers ask well it doesn't feel historic. well it is having an impeachment in close to re-election is would you say precedent in american
7:17 am
history. you touched on the politics. there are elements non-political. the white house decided not to cooperate with the investigation, not to allow witnesses to appear and provide documents. that became the underlying motive behind the second article of impeachment, instruction of congress. and yet the white house if i hear you correctly believes that was not only the better legal strategy it's emerged as a potentially beneficial political one as well. >> well sure that's the argument they make. but the problem is now we are approaching a senate trial. and they have to face up to that. and, you know, president trump has already said that he did not want to participate, did not want to have witnesses take the stand during the house proceedings. because he believed that was an illegitimate process. and he has said he thinks he can have a fair trial in the senate. if you follow that logic, then mr. trump would be encouraging mulvaney and others in his inner circle who know exactly what was happening when he was having the conversations with ukraine to take the stand.
7:18 am
but so far he hasn't committed to that. we have certainly asked him as well as senior a ers whether or not he'll be open and actually want those people to defend him if there is a senate trial. and so this could back fire. we'll have to see. but you bring up a great point, major. because sources have said one of the big problems that democrats created for themselves is that they tossed around the word impeachment from almost the moment he took office. and so the gravity that is typically linked to impeachment is not here they believe the public is now desensitized but it's inheritic and grave. >> the impeachment coverage continues on the 24 hours streaming network. watch it on cbs news.com or on the app. there will be more to come on the local news station and on this station and tonight on the abc evening news with mora

7:32 am
the nypd says they were canvassing an area near the crime scene when they saw the suspect wearing clothing similar to that of suspects from the park. now, this teen had possession of a knife and admitted to detectives that he and two friends robbed tessa majors and stabbed her. >> this is just kind of a shock. >> reporter: barnard college students were emotional thursday after news emerged their classmate, freshman tessa majors, had been killed in a park near campus. >> it could have been anyone, and it's just so unfortunate that it happened to someone who is so young. >> reporter: just before 7:00 p.m. wednesday, police say majors was stabbed several times by one to three people, after a struggle in the park. she staggered up these steps into the street where a school security guard eventually saw her and called 911. she later died at the hospital. the park is a popular thorough fare for many college students who live near or around campus.
7:33 am
according to nypd statistics, crime is up in this park and the city's murder rate is also up some 8%. >> why is the murder rate higher this year compared to last, despite your best efforts? >> look, it's a question we are asking ourselves strategically, not just -- we feel it emotionally. every single one of us gets the same reports and they're not just numbers to us, they're human lives. >> reporter: in the 1960s and '70s crime was so ramp anxiety in morningside park that locals refer to it as muggingside park. but in 2001 they declared it had emerged from its nightmare. writing children are in the playgrounds and columbia students routinely settle under trees to read. the community is now left to mourn a rising star, a virginia local newspaper in high school and was already making a name for herself at barnard. >> she was really kind and really good a guitar. >> reporter: a bass player and singer.

many of the victims of monday's volcanic eruption in new zealand were passengers from a royal caribbean cruise ship. royal caribbean tells cbs news it is now suspending tours of active volcanos. earlier the company said it was devastated by the tragedy. this incident is raising questions for all cruise line operators about their liability and the excursion providers that do business with them. "cbs this morning" consumer investigative correspondent anna werner is with us. this seems to be an issue a lot of people should be looking at. >> i don't think a lot of tourists pay attention to this but it is good to know what risks you may be taking. assigning blame, winning damages when injuries occur, that's pretty complicated, because not
7:41 am
only is there usually more than one company involved but more than one country as well oftentimes. there are measures, however, you can take to protect yourself. 47 people, nine of them americans, were near new zealand's white island volcano when it erupted. most of them part of a day trip excursion offered to passengers. cbs news travel editor peter greenberg. >> the people who bought these excursions bought it from the cruise company and the cruise company outskoers outsourced it outside vendor. >> reporter: the question is should the vendor have cancelled the excursion. geonet wander new volcanic activity on white islandment an imminent eruption was possible but the week before it did not pose a direct hazard to visitors. it's likely everyone on the excursion signed a liability waiver. that's true for the estimated 7,000 excursions an expert tells
7:42 am
us are offered annually by cruise lines, everything from zip lines to scuba diving to bungee jumping. >> signing a waiver doesn't mean the vendor is protected. he still may have rights. >> reporter: the eruption is far from the only deadly excursion from a cruise ship. back in may, six passengers aboard the royal princess were killed while on an aerial sightseeing excursion over alaska's misty fjords national monument when the two planes collided in midair. in december of 2017, 12 people were killed and 18 injured in a bus crash during a land excursion from two royal caribbean cruises in mexico. despite any potential dangers, for many passengers shore excursions are an essential part of a cruise vacation. >> travelers today want a more immersive experience. they want to get up close and personal and are more than willing to sign those waivers because it's one of their bucket lists. >> reporter: as for the victims of the eruption on white island who want to hold someone
7:43 am
responsible, due to a 45-year-old law in new zealand, the excursion company may be legally protected from being sued. >> it's basically a no-fault insurance plan where nobody gets to sue and nobody gets blamed. they can just get a payout from the government or from an insurance fund. however, the payout is limited. it's about $200,000 new zealand dollars at the top end. >> so that's just over $132,000 in u.s. dollars. we reached out to princess cruises and royal caribbean about any litigation connected to their previous excursion accidents, but they have not responded. >> so what do folks do who take these excursions? how do they protect themselves? >> one of the things to keep in mind if you're going on a foreign trip, you might want to get something called medical evacuation and repatriation insurance that protects you if you become sick or injured while you're overseas. some of these places you want to have medical evacuation and it's worth the money to pay that so that somebody will come and get you and take you to a hospital
7:44 am

8:01 am
no's. >> the articles are agreed to. >> we're at an historic moment. first time in two decades that the house judiciary committee has approved articles of impeachment against a sitting president. we're learning that there's disagreement between what the legal team wants and what president trump has very publicly said he is most demanding. because he believes it will help his case. a 13-year-old suspect has been charged with second-degree murder. now this teen admitted that he and two friends robbed tessa majors and stabbed her. one, two, three -- [ laughter ] >> check out this professor from tidewater community college going viral for his fun teaching methods. >> a montage featuring fire, nails and more has been viewed on twitter millions of times. >> when you love your job so
8:02 am
much and you inspire learning -- >> he's a teacher you're never going to forget. >> that's worth the price of tuition. welcome back to "cbs this morning," breaking news, a house jude riiciary committee voted t approve articles of impeachment against president donald trump. >> the articles are agreed to, the resolution as amended reported favorably to the house. >> both articles passed along voting lines, all democrats voting aye and all republicans voting no. nancy cordis is outside the hearing room. >> it unfolded as we thought it would. in a partisan manner and the members wasted no time. voting swiftly, first on one article and then another before adjourning. 23 democrats voted yes on each of the two articles, abuse of power and obstruction of congress. the 17 committee republicans voting no.
8:03 am
from here, the articles go to the full house of representatives. where a vote to formally impeach the president is expect next week. we're hearing that wednesday is the target day if approved, the case heads to the republican-controlled senate for a trial. the majority leader mitch mcconnell said he expects it to begin in january. today's historic vote was expected to take place yesterday. but after more than 14 hours of heated debate, democratic chairman jerry nadler abruptly adjourned until this morning and that infuriated republicans who said the move was made just so this vote could take place in the morning on tv. democrats contend it was more transparent to hold the vote during the day. as for the president, he has been venting his frustrations on twitter. after tweeting and retweeting more than 120 messages yesterday. >> wow, nancy, thank you. chief washington correspondent major garrett is
8:04 am
with us this morning. as we heard nancy say, aiming for a full house vote next wednesday. how is the white house going to outline his defense? >> the way it has throughout this process. here's a metaphor -- anvil/hammer. done nothing wrong, bang. read the transcript, bang, process bad, bang. democrats obsessed with impeachment, bang. it's not subtle but polling data suggests it's been more effective than the white house thought it would be. >> are we likely to see any defections from either side at this stage? >> the key issue for house democrats, two house democrats voted against launching the inquiry in the first place. no republicans voted for it every republican i've talked to on white house and capitol hill say there will be no republican defections they're going to stick with the president completely. history will remember them for that. will house democrats who didn't vote for the inquiry vote for the articles of impeachment? any number larger than two, republicans will point to and the white house will point to and say see this case on full
8:05 am
public view, on television hour after hour didn't even persuade some house democrats. >> by my count two steps away from a potential trial in the senate. a judiciary vote and a full house vote. at which point it would go to the senate for a trial. >> next year, january. >> the white house wants to have a long trial. but it sounds like the senate leaders want to have a short trial? what's going on here? >> this is a quasi-legal and entirely political process. it is constitutionally sanctioned. but the politics of it are real. >> they're coordinating the white house and the leaders. >> would you expect them to. the white house wants to talk a very big, aggressive game about a trial that is full of witnesses. and nancy pelosi and adam schiff and hunter biden and maybe joe biden. i think that is more bluff than reality. i think if presented with the option, mr. president, we can have a summary of arguments and we can dispatch with this in less than two weeks and you can claim exoneration and we can move on.
8:06 am
the president will take that deal i think that's exactly what mitch mcconnell and senate republicans are outlining. donald trump's prepresidency history, litigate until you get what you want. to be exonerated and not removed from office. >> you talked to democratic presidential candidates and they say out on the campaign trail nobody wants impeachment. it's not a topic of discussion, or at least not initially. is there any regret among democrats who think they've pushed this impeachment? >> i don't think there's any regret. i believe that you should at this point because impeachment is so large, take them at their word. this body of evidence looks to us so grave, so concerning, it must be dealt with. and history will deal with this. not just in the present, but in the future. that's their point of view as i've told everyone with impeachment. it lasts forever. it is not an act that leaves the congress that doesn't or the president that's accused of it untouched. and history will be the judge. maybe not immediately, maybe not

the justice department is expected to charge two more former nfl players in an alleged multimillion-dollar scheme to defraud the league's health program.
8:14 am
10 former players have been indicted, four of them played for the washington redskins, including running back clinton portis. nicole killian is outside of fedex field in landover, maryland. the home of the redskins. nicole, what have we learned about this investigation? >> well michelle, some of these ex-players have been arrested, while others are turning themselves in. that includes clinton portis, who spent much of his career with the washington redskins. and is well known in this community. today he is expected to surrender to authorities. but his attorney insists he did nothing wrong. >> it's a block. >> it's a play that the justice department is now blowing the whistle on. >> this is very much like a typical health care fraud scheme. >> federal prosecutors indicted 10 former nfl players, including all pro running back, clinton portis, on fraud charges. and accuse them of using a league health care plan like a personal money machine. >> by defrauding the plan and
8:15 am
treating it like their personal atm, sadly the defendants placed the plan's tax-exempt status at risk. >> the players were charged with nearly $4 million worth of fraudulent claims for high-cost medical equipment they never actually bought. the claims typically ranged from $40,000 to $50,000 apiece. for a oxygen chamber. ultrasound machines and electromagnetic therapy devices used on horses. >> you would be surprised as the casual fan or observer, some of the more unconventional avenues that these guys take to get their body whole. >> doug eldridge who represents a number of nfl athletes says these actions, if proven could make it harder for other players. >> their veracity is in question. they will seek to poke holes in every forthcoming claim. >> portis' attorney told cbs in a statement his client is quote, completely taken aback by the
8:16 am
indictment and will move forward with the process of clearing his good name and those of his fellow nfl alumni. the nfl players association declined to comment. the charges these former players face carry penalties that could put them behind bars for decades if convicted. tony? >> nicole, thank you very much. it's not always you can assume these guys made some money while they were playing, but you often make it young, you don't always save it. and you could face difficulties in your 30s. it's alleged this is fraud. meanwhile their lawyers say hey these guys have unusual ways of staying healthy. >> a lot of them have injuries. >> nicole thank you very much. this morning we're focused on maintaining your mental health during the holidays, psychiatrist dr. sue varma is in our green room to talk about the risks of loneliness and how to fight it. you're watching "cbs this
8:17 am
morning." you know when you're at ross and you realize it's time
8:18 am
your sister stopped borrowing your sweaters? yeah! that's yes for less. stop stealing mine... never. holiday gifts everyone's sure to love at 20 to 60 percent off department store prices. at ross. yes for less.
8:19 am
and you realize you are the the hostess with the mostest. you know when you're at ross yes! yeah! that's yes for less. entertain in style all season long. it feels even better when you find it for less-at ross. yes for less. a pair of new studies suggests older adults are more
8:20 am
lonely than they used to be. the american psychological association found on average that reported loneliness begins to increase after the age of 75. loneliness is an issue, in fact, for all generations. a separate study from 2018 found that 46% of all adults in the u.s. sometimes or always feel lonely. and 43% feel isolated from others. dr. sue varma is a psychiatrist, and she consults on depression, anxiety disorders, and work-life balance issues. she joins us now. this is a major, major issue. and there's a lot of theories out there. there's a comedian named gary golman who does a bit about shopping at trader joe's. he talks about the connection when he's got the bag of groceries and the clerk holds the receipt so he can sign it, as a teamwork act. a moment of connection. i think about that because we shop on line now. church attendance is declining. >> yes. >> civic organization are going away. is that what's going on here? >> yes. there was an interesting article in "the atlantic" about how the
8:21 am
land line was a point of connection in the home as a family. these microconversations, let's never minimize the important of it. and i think what's happening, when we look at the study from 2018, it's the extremes of ages. we're talking about 18 to 22-year-olds, the generation z that feels lonely because what they're missing is the boarding school, boot camp, graduate school, parenting, whatever it is, if you're not having in real-life meaningful exchanges where you're vulnerable with somebody, forming a deep connection, you're missing out on opportunities. >> one government agency is calling this an epidemic. i mean, what are the warning signs for someone who is facing this? >> yeah. so you know, first of all, it's important to separate social isolation from loneliness. loneliness is a subjective quality. it has to do with whether you're with people or without.
8:22 am
there are people who are in marriages where they're feeling conflicted, not getting their needs met, and feel lonely. just because you're surrounded by others don't assume the other person is not lonely. ask them questions like do you feel like other people are not with you? do you feel like other people don't understand you? do you have difficulty forming meaningful relationships? there are people who are very social and chatty and party-like and you're like, they cannot be lonely, but they are because they're not establishing deep and meaningful connections. trust. >> what's the borderline between loneliness and depression? >> it's hard because they often go hand in hand. loneliness increases the risk for depression, and people who are depressed may perceive themselves to be lonely but may not necessarily be. it's perception. in depression, you see low energy, low mood, low concentration, inability to get out of bed, to want to do things, or you might be high functioning and still be feeling depressed. there's a depressed mood. loneliness may feel a state of feeling that comes and goes. depression is something that stays over a period of two weeks or more and affects your
8:23 am
functioning. lonely people can still function. that's the difference. >> i understand why this might be affecting young people, they're on line all the time, not engaged face to face. why older americans? >> yes. what's interesting is look at the people protected the most. generation sort of baby-boomers, 50 to 75. they might be retired but they're actively engaged in their communities. they still have health, more or less, and they're involved in -- in retirement. they might be more busy than they are when they were working. the extremes of age beyond the age of 75, when you're starting to lose your health and your independence and sense of agency and mass tree that is important, people are dying -- >> friends. >> and family very often is scattered. >> yes. you might be -- somebody sending you to a nursing home or community where you don't know anybody else. then you're dependent on other people. i feel like maintaining your independence and mobility is so important. physical mobility. >> how do you combat this? >> so look at the three things that contribute to loneliness. one is the sense of self. when we think of loneliness, we think of are you missing interpersonal relationships. nobody's talking about how do you feel about yourself.
8:24 am
if you don't have good about yourself, you're going to feel as if i have nothing to offer other people. and social anxiety causes loneliness. the second piece is engaging with other people meaningfully. the last part is something higher outside of yourself. >> what can we learn from people who aren't lonely, who are those people who just seem to have it all? >> yes. they are not self-absorbed. that's the biggest thing. >> not? >> not self-absorbed. the people that are self-absorbed -- i don't mean this in a bad way but depression causes an inward turn. even if you're lonely, how can i give back to somebody else? can you get involved in a community? are you volunteering? what i love is pair teenagers or young people in the generation z with the oldest group. both people are lonely, but both have so much to add. when you put teens and grandparents together, everybody benefits. >> is one fact that underscores the stakes here, loneliness as compared to smoking 15 cigarettes a day. it affects your physical health. >> absolutely. >> get out there. connect. >> absolutely. >> dr. sue varma, thank you so much for being with us. this morning, millions of radio listeners across the country are hearing one of their
