white house is not challenging that basic claim that president trump pressured ukraine to democrats said the president is the founding fathers' worst are come to me to life. hank you so so much, chip. "cbs evening news" anchor and managing editor norah o'donnell spoke exclusively with bout why te house managers. she talked with adam schiff and valdemmings, zoe lofgren and talked about why they disgrace with the argument that abuse of power is not a crime. >> the president of the united states has privileges and power that no other person has. erythe abuse of those very unique powers and privileges is at the fraat the framers had in the when they drafted the ent procedt procedures. >> let me ask you about the question of witnesses. ouldumably you would want to call john bolton. are you prepared then for who the republicans want to call as ortnesses? would that be fair?
7:10 am
?> it's really fair for the president and his team to call witnesses that can provide material information on the charges. it would not be appropriate for he president to call witnesses merely to try to perpetuate the same smear campaign that was foiled when his plot was discovered. hunter biden, for example, can't tell us anything about whether the president withheld military ldd, whether he withheld the aid to coerce ukraine to conduct e ukrainl investigations or why he wouldn't meet with the president of ukraine. the only purpose of putting him on the list is they wish to trade material witnesses like hr. bolton, mulvaney and others, for immaterial ones that will allow them to continue to attack o contiical opponent. a polin illegitimate -- that's an illegitimate abuse of the trial. abuchief justice who may have the opportunity to real on unity tlity of witnesses as well as a senator should not that
7:11 am
-- should not prevent that kind of abuse. >> you can see more tonight on the "cbs evening news" and cbs news will bring you a special report on the senate impeachment trial of president trump as it gets underway later today. e expect those proceedings to t aroundound 1:00 pm eastern time. tor rnieande rar apologized to former vice president joe biden in an sclusive interview with cbs d from a sanders surrogate accusing biden of having a, quote, corruption problem. ed o'keefe is in des moines. ed, with the iowa caucuses less ed, w than two weeks away, why this than t apology? >> reporter: good morning. looking, the race for president way ts a toss up. all the candidates have looking for some way to break through. in this op-ed, a new york pberal and prominent sanders surrogate, argues that joe biden s that joeuption problem for taking contributions from wealthy donors. she she writes, "middle-class joe
7:12 am
has perfected the art of taking big contributions, then ributions,ng his corporate donors at the cost of middle and working-class americans." ateras later circulated by the sanders campaign. sa paigniden campaign quickly swung back and observers suggested the attacks are part of a pattern for sanders dating back to his 2016 campaign when he faced n when hm for not stopping tupporters from aggressively attacking opponents like hillary hillaryor more recently biden.eth warren and biden. s on we caught up with him, he called on his supporters to play nice. >> joe and i have strong disagreements on a number of issues, and we'll argue those disagreements out. disagree y view is absolutely not my view cat joe is corrupt in any way. y.d i'm sorry that that op-ed appeared. i appeal to my supporters, lease engaged in civil discourse -- by the way, we're have a debly people that do.
7:13 am
other people act that way, as well. i would appeal to everybody, have a debate on the issues. we can disagree with each other without being disagreeable, without being hateful. >> reporter: in response last night, biden tweeted his thanks to sanders and said, "these kind of attacks have no place in this primary." biden is on the trail in iowa today holding two events while the senators running for president, of course, are back gresoro io in the the impeach coming days, congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez of new york. she'll hold events for him friday and saturday. n whonk it was elton john who once said "sorry seems to be the hardest word." est whatever reason last night, it.nie sanders could say it. a it sounded good to a lot of people. discoudiscourse, it's a good thing, seems rare these days. thank you so much. r o'keefe reporting. a large rally by gun rights supporters in virginia ended peacefully. more than 20,000 demonstrators, mme carrying handguns and rifles, marched outside the state capitol in richmond yesterday amid very heavy security.
7:14 am
they were protesting proposed new state gun laws. before the march, authorities horities credible threats of violence, a planned anti-gun rally was canceled by wasanizers. the official death toll from navirus iavirus in china has risen to six. rise doctors now say the virus can be transmittedfrom person to person. 's t's troubling. and that led to fears it will spread faster prompting increased precautions like avelers.specially for travelers. today taiwan is reporting its first infection. a woman who had visited wuhan, epiceicenter of the outbreak. it's where we find ramy inocencio. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. sfficials here in wuhan is designated nine hospitals as treatment centers including this s incluind me. that's on top of 61 fever clinics and an expert medical alam. of one piece of good news is havechinese scientists have also said they figured out the dna sequence of this virus. that opens this up to otentially new treatments and possibly a vaccine.
7:15 am
as hundreds of millions of chinese residents migrate across the country to ring in the lunar new year, confirmation the virus can be spread between humans humansthe possibility it can be ossibilited more quickly and more broadly. that poses an even greater challenge for china and nearby nations to contain the outbreak. travelers with masks, quarantine stations, and temperature checkpoints are becoming common sights at airports and train subs across asia. this man we spoke to outside the hospital says it's difficult to contain the spread of the virus but believes the government can andle it very well. the number of known infections has risen sharply since interday, topping 300 cases in china alone. at least 15 hospital workers in wuhan have been diagnosed with the virus. , aif, in fact, a person has infected a health care worker, that's obviously of some concern. >> reporter: dr. anthony fauci concer ciom the national institutes of nationalys the human-to-human
7:16 am
transmissions could be isolated incidents but -- to aen you get sustained transmissibility from one person to another to another to another, you have a more serious problem. that would allow for a much broader type of an outbreak. >> reporter: the world health healtzation says it will assemble an emergency committee of experts. assemb they will meet wednesday to decide whether this epidemic decide constitutes a global emergency bal eme best to contain it. gayle? >> ramy inocencio from wuhan, china. >> r thank you. prince harry is back in canada this morning reunited wif his wife and young son archie. he arrived in vancouver after what may have been his last what m ovent as a senior royal. elizabeth palmer reports from title,gham palace. >> reporter: prince harry and, yes, he still gets to use the title, arrived in vancouver last night and was immediately tative oaway to rejoin meghan
7:17 am
and 8-month-old archie. only hours before, harry had wound up his job as the senior representative of the royal family at a conference on african investment. harry and meghan's exit likely work even more work for prince illiam, the future king, who with his wife kate was on duty wasuckingham palace for the ce fortime, primary hosts of a reception. the previous day harry had told the pr a meeting of his private charity that there had been no option but to go. leap are taking a leap of faith, so thank you for giving fait me the courage to take this next step. >> reporter: this is not yet a clean break. what are the loose ends? loose e are more loose ends than there are decisions. the outstanding one, of course, ,s the money. who's going to pay for what. and probably the most outstanding is security. >> reporter: keeping the young family safe is going to cost a fortune. fortun and british or canadian taxpayers are likely to get the bill.
7:18 am
that's going to generate some anger on top of the resentment already simmering, most of it directed at the outsider in this story. british pubsh public opinion is that it's all meghan's fault. that she has lured harry away from us. she is the one that's insisted that they have a private life. >> reporter: now we should probaby qualify that a little bit. it's a generational thing. older people here tend to feel as if meghan has lured harry away. younger people say, look, they deserve a chance at a happy life, and they just wish them well. anthony? >> all right. still so many questions. elizabeth palmer at buckingham palace, thank you. eliz uckinghalad she clarified. it doesn't look like harry's look lured to me. ointink this is a joint decision between the two of them. s> he even said it was his decision. >> he did say that in a statement. ahead only on "cbs this morning," an ohio doctor is under attack for defending

7:32 am
st. james. >> there are really only two ways to get out to this island, either by helicopter or private boat. that seclusion appears to be by design making it difficult for government officials to monitor jeffrey epstein's behavior on the island and harder for the victims who were brought here to escape. >> little st. james may look like a tropical getaway, but authorities say jeffrey epstein used the private island to hide his criminal activity. >> felt that he could basically be protected or -- >> he can get away with things. >> he can get away with it. >> denise george became attorney general of the virgin islands months before epstein's death by suicide last year. her office is now suing epstein's estate. >> why pursue these charges now? >> all i'll have to say is why not now? i cannot speak for what happened in the past at all. what i do know is that because of epstein's wealth and power, he was able to conceal a lot of

an ohio doctor who received a flood of threats over a pro-vaccine social media post is standing by her message. in this playful tick-toc video, dr. nicole baldwin showed the benefits of vaccines and said they do not cause autism. that prompted a barrage of hateful responses. scientific evidence shows there is no link between vaccines and autism, by the way. despite that, a recent poll found that 46% of americans are still unsure about this debunked connection. only on "cbs this morning," dr. jon lapook spoke to dr. baldwin about her posts and the fallout. >> we know that vaccines don't
7:42 am
cause autism, and it's important for that message to get out there. >> reporter: dr. nicole baldwin says she was concerned about the impact of misleading anti-vax posts on social media. she created this -- baldwin's tick-tock has more than 1.4 million views. she and her staff quickly became targets. >> i have been the subject of a tsunami of negative comments on all of my social media. there have been negative, fraudulent reviews. >> reporter: one social media user called baldwin "public enemy number one" and another commenter told the pediatrician to stop killing our kids with vaccines. even though the overwhelming scientific consensus is that vaccines do not cause autism, 16% of parents with children younger than 18 say they still believe vaccines cause more harm than good. >> one of the challenges we have in the era of the internet is there is really very little recourse -- >> reporter: renee duresta is a

7:44 am
think one effective way is to start with common ground. what's the common grounds between you and your patient, which is that we all love our kids, we all want them to stay away there harm --a stay away from harm. you have to have an attitude that's not judgmental. attitude, tone matters. it's the difference between saying why do you think that versus why do you think that? >> the science is so clear, john. >> the science is clear -- science is clear -- >> why is it hard to debunk this? >> there's science and then there's belief. it's very hard -- think of the beliefs that you've had that when they get punctured. that's a very hard thing to deal with. i think for now the science is clear. i think doctors have to have empathy for the parents who are in there trying to -- they want to keep their kids safe. >> both sides think they're doing the right things for their kids. >> it's not a both-sides issue. it is clear that the vaccines have been saving lives for decades. >> i have to say, there are voices that you're not hearing. you're not hearing the more than 140,000 people a year who die

i'm tom steyer and i approve this message. in this morning's "eye on money," how low mortgage rates could help homeowners cut their costs. the average 30-year fixed rate mortgage is 3.65%. that's down almost a full percentage point from the same time a year ago. almost 63% of mortgage applicants are homeowners looking to refinance. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here with some advice if you are thinking about refinancing. jill, good morning. >> good morning. >> so if you are thinking about refinancing, what do you need to know here? >> well, obviously rates are lower. and so if you've got a higher rate than that 3.65%, that might sort of pique your interest. as you know, every single deal when it comes to a mortgage involves costs. and closing costs on a re-fi can be 2% to 5% of the loan amount.
8:22 am
i should also note that when we talk about these great rates, 3.65%, it's great if you've got great credit. and usually that means the mid 700s or so. so what you want to do is run the numbers, see how long it will take you to break even. if your payment goes down, how many months do you have to be in that house. if you're going to move in a couple of years, may not make sense to refinance. >> a lot of people are doing debt triage. they've got the mortgage debt, they've got the credit card debt, student loan debt. can you refinance the mortgage to pay off other stuff? >> you can. of course that's really intriguing because if i have a 22% outstanding credit card balance or even a student loan at 6% or 7% and i can get a 3.75% mortgage sounds great. when the new tax law went into effect, there was a big change. you can no longer deduct interest that is used to pay off other debt. so if $200,000 of your mortgage is your primary residence but another 30,000 is credit card
8:23 am
and student loans, that 30,000, you're not supposed to deduct the mortgage interest. we've got to be clea still, it's a lot cheaper, and it may be a better deal for you to use your mortgage, home equity, to do that. >> should you think about refinancing if you have one of those adjustable rates? >> i think this is a great time. >> you do? >> yeah. here's why -- last year when rates were higher, i got people who called my radio russia and podcast they were freaking out because adjustable rate mortgages ticked up -- >> i'm scared of those -- >> they look great when ritz go down. when they go up they get spooky. >> all the same people that had that feeling last year could be a chance for you to fix that loan for the next 30 years. and i think that's important. also same thing, if someone has a balloon payment, where you pay a fixed rate for ten years, but then ten years from now you're going to have to pay a big amount, maybe your situation has changed. maybe you're not going to move. maybe you're not going to have that influx of money. i think fixed rates are the way to go. by the way, i always err on the
8:24 am
30 year, not the 15 year. i know what you're thinking, wait, you want to pay it off sooner. but 30-year loan means you've got more flexibility during the life of the loan. if you've got young kids and you want to start putting money away for college, you might say i want a lower mortgage payment today. i can always pay it off faster if i had to. >> right. how long typically does a re-fi take, jill, and what documents do you need? >> gosh, 45 days probably. it's still a pain in the neck. paychecks, w2s, asset statements, loan statements. your whole life. your blood. whatever they want -- >> like you said -- >> first born child. you need that, too? >> exactly. perseverance. >> hasn't gotten easier. thank you so much. appreciate it. oprah is in the toyota green room with a big announcement, there's a book somewhere in there --

>> you'll get to know them really well. >> yeah. it's -- it will visit 38 ports in 26 countries. five continents, 34,000 nautical miles. it sounds like -- >> does this sound fun to you? 111 days -- >> absolutely. >> on a ship -- with 600-plus people? >> i mean, you know, the prices are a little bit i don't know. it's $22,000 for an interior cabin starting price. if you want a view of the ocean like a little port hole, it's $32,000. >> i'm interested in a short cruise. >> oh, no -- >> i think i'd be banging the hull going, "let me off." >> i want to go around the world, but -- >> i have to talk to cbs management about this. there's a boat leaving in 2021 that's almost 1,000 feet in length, a 200-day around-the-world cruise. i might be on it. never know. >> are you leaving us? >> i'm announcing my retirement to travel the world. i have a hat and striped shirt -- >> madam president is listening. only on "cbs this morning," oprah's here.
8:34 am
she's going to reveal her new book club selection. she's in the middle of her 2020 "vision your life in focus" tour promoting wellness all around the country. her special guests so far have included -- amy schumer, lady gaga, there's more to come with dwayne johnson, tina fey was there, first lady michelle obama, actress tracee ellis ross. also coming up. during her recent tour stop in north carolina last weekend, comedian amy schumer was on stage with oprah to talk about being a new mom. >> i heard that one of your takeaways is that women are just warriors. >> we are warriors. [ applause ] all of us. i mean, for real. that is what i learned. i didn't just learn how strong i was. i really learned as a whole how strong women are. and you know, men are great, too, and like that's awesome. and you guys can throw a touchdown. but like can you make a baby? >> oprah joins us at the table.
8:35 am
listen, i was thinking about you for the delta story about the ceo -- >> yes, two months is extraordinary. i started out giving a week's pay -- >> i remember that. >> when i had my very first job in television, my first boss, carol crump, gave us a week's pay for christmas. so i did that every year for my employees -- two months is a lot. >> it is a lot. >> we have a lot to talk about. we're going to start with -- you've been making news lately about the documentary involving -- >> i try not to make news, but okay. >> oprah told me last night, we had dinner, she said, if i didn't have there book club, i would have called in sick today. >> i would have called in sick. >> i do think it's important for people to hear from you personally, to address it. i know you released a statement. you decided to take your name off the documentary involving russell simmons. and his alleged abuse of women. i think people question why would oprah of all people do that. >> well, first of all, i just want to say that i have lived me
8:36 am
too since i was 9 years old. and was raped at 9, sexually assaulted from 9 to 14, and then raped again at 14. and nothing is harder than standing up for yourself when you're 14 and not being believed. i was not believed by my own family. so i stand in support of these women. i believe them. it was a hard decision because i knew that russell simmons had started publicly pressuring me and that me pulling out of the arme bnteidongy wasng pressured. >> what do you -- >> he publicly and privately pressured you -- >> yes, yes. what do i say to that? for me -- and gayle knows this -- in all experiences of my life, particularly when i'm in a crisis, the only question for me is what is the right thing to do. >> for you -- >> for me. so before the public pressure had started, before russell had gone with his instagram, i had gone to the -- to the filmmakers
8:37 am
and had said to them, houston, i think we have a problem here. new information had come forward, the very first time this was announced. and i said, i think we need to pull out of sundance. and if we can't pull out of sundance, i'm going to have to take my name off. i don't want to do that because it's -- >> you said pull out of sundance to get it right. >> i don't care about awards -- i care about getting it right. i think there's inconsistencies in the stories that we need to look at. >> russell simmons has, first of all, he's denied all of the allegations vigorously. >> yeah. >> you again have said that you unequivocally support these women. >> yes. >> why are you making it a point to say that even though you're withdrawing from the -- >> because i believe that the women's voices deserve to be heard. and as an executive producer, i also was in a position where i thought some things were not right. i wanted the context of the story to be broadened, i wanted more women brought into the story. and i will say this, that i
8:38 am
thought michelle miller's story last week with -- with three of the women, one of the women had just been added, alexia norton-strong i think is her name. and i had asked that more women be added. when you see the documentary which i do hope people will see the documentary, i felt that story needed to be broadened. one of the things i said to the producers is, i don't think that deserves to just be a sound byte. i can honestly say that i learned more about alexia norton-strong in michelle miller's story than i did in the doc. i was asking for changes. let me just say this -- i've been an executive producer since the beginning of the "oprah" show. there were many times -- people say what's the timeline. until the thing is on the screen, you have the right to change your mind and make changes. and i remember many times on the show, particularly there was a columbine story we were going to run for the 10th anniversary, and the night before i pulled it because something about it didn't feel right. and i thought we are going to
8:39 am
cause more school shootings if we put this on the air. so i've always been in the position as an executive producer, if ia say i want changes, usually those are done. what this taught me is don't put your name on anything that you do not have creative control over. >> some people have perceived this as a victory for russell. >> yeah. >> and russell -- >> this is not a victory for russell. and i unequivocally say that i did not pull out because of russell. this is not a victory lap for him. i cannot be silenced by a russell simmons after all i've been through. and also, you know, i spent three years on trial trying to protect the girls at my school who had accused a dorm parent of sexual assault. three years on trial, and nobody believed them. >> it struck me as odd that some would accuse you of not standing f accused of you not sticking up for women, black women in particular. >> to me that is ridiculous. and also ridiculous to think i
8:40 am
could be intimidated by russell simmons. yeah. >> or anyone. >> i don't think anyone. not at this point. i am about to turn 66, okay? >> that's the one thing you get when you turn 66. you know, people are saying that i was silenced. i am not silenced. i'm sitting on "cbs this morning," which is exactly the opposite of being silenced. i stand with the women. i hope people see the film even though -- and make their own decisions about it. >> can you stay around so we can unveil the book club? >> this is why i was here. n't wait. time ago. we rely on the internet more than ever.

8:45 am
where luca is standing. i was in. i was in from the very first sentence. >> we should say this book is receiving critical acclaim for the powerful portrayal of a migrant's journey across the u.s. lydia, a mother who escapes from mexico with her son after surviving a brutal attack by a cartel. jeanine cummins is with us also. >> luca is her son. >> yes, 8 years old. >> what was the moment like when you got a phone call from oprah? >> best moment of my life. the four words every writer dreams of hearing. general even, it's oprah winfrey. i was very jet lagged. i had gotten off a plane from the u.k. i said very early in the conversation, this is not oprah winfrey right now. and she said, yes, it is. it's oprah! >> did she do that? she did do that? >> yes. it's real. >> you do that to people all the time. i forgot i did that. >> amazing. >> i used to say, we'll be right
8:46 am
back. you know that, you know, you have heard that. it's oprah. >> it's oprah. >> this is fascinating about the book because already you have a little bit of hate against you, people are drinking it about you. you said even you were first worried you had no business writing this book. you feld compelled yet unqualified. why? because it's a migrant story. >> it is a migrant story. >> involving mexico. >> i knew that i wanted to write about immigration. i was interested in that topic. and i wasn't -- i resisted for a very long time telling the story orri i didn't 's point of view know enough, my privilege would make me blind to certain truths. >> what convinced you that you could write it? >> look, i felt very compelled. it was five years of research and two failed drafts that convinced me that i needed to go into lydia's point of view. there was a point early on in the research where i was speaking with a very generous scholar, a woman who was chair
8:47 am
of the chicano study department at san diego state university at the time. she said to me, i expressed my concerns about this, and she said we need every voice we can get telling this story. >> what touched you, oprah, about this story, the writing? >> first of all, the language is the first thing that pulls me in in way story. then what touched me, by the end. story, not even by the end, i immediately was drawn into the story and their desire to get to the united states. and every night on the news i think you hear so many stories, so many migrant stories. i watch norah o'donnell every evening. you see the stories at the border. i thought this humanized that migration process in a way that nothing else i had ever felt or seen had. and i agree with you. this is one story and i'm saying let everybody else tell your story. this story really changed me and changed the way i see what it means to be an immigrant trying to come to this country. >> i love hearing that.
8:48 am
>> and you started focusing on it before it was even -- even before it was in the zeitgeist, this conversation, about the immigrants and the border wall? >> yeah, 2013 i started writing, started researching. i went to the border lands. i spent time on both sides of the border. i went -- i visited migrant shelters, i volunteered at a soup kitchen. >> what was the most powerful part of all of that for you? >> i think i met so many immigrants and listening to their stories and also the people who are doing the work to support immigrants and put themselves bodily in harm's way to be a protection for people who are so vulnerable, seeing, you know, theof hop alcourage, what actual bravery looks like made me -- >> so, guys, we are going to go to the border to do the book club and film it for apple tv
8:49 am
plus. >> to the actual location? >> yes. >> you say the places are real. >> we are going to go where people cross over to the border and we are going to film there for apple. >> who gets to go? >> oprah, tell me who gets to go. >> people who are writing at oprah's book club. >> oprah, jeanine cummins, thank you.
