7:04 am
rushes to fill a power vacuum. >> i think i shocked some of you, huh? >> reporter: majority leader kevin mccarthy pulled out of the speaker's race at the last possible moment thursday, just before a vote he was expected to win. >> said for us to unite, you probably need a fresh face. >> reporter: his announcement left lawmakers reeling including two of his opponents. >> absolutely stunned. did not see that coming. >> reporter: mccarthy had faced opposition from the same 40 hard-line conservatives who wanted to unseed the current speaker john boehner. one from kansas said mccarthy's exit from the race is a victory for the american people. >> they want conservatives to expect congressmen and that hasn't happened much the last four and a half years. >> reporter: not everyone saw that it that way. new york leaders peter king. >> you can't hostage the house of representatives. >> reporter: one called it a fight for the soul of the gop.

"face the nation is with us. john, good morning. so the question is what happened to mccarthy? what is happening to the republican party? and is the tail wagging the dog? >> well, there is wagging all over the place. i mean, the dogs are running amuck, i guess is the answer. the problem is there is nobody who can get 218 votes which is the number of republicans you need to be elected speaker. before mccarthy made this bombshell announcement i talked to a member who was trying to count votes for him. he said he can win in the conference of what is supposed to be happening yesterday but they didn't think they could win 218 on the house floor which would be a public embarrassment for him and the problem nobody can still get those 218 votes. >> the number of republicans in the entire caucus is? >> 247. >> right. so can anybody win without the freedom caucus which is about 40 votes and is it clear that paul ryan has the votes of the freedom caucus? >> the 40 on votes, their
7:07 am
argument in the freedom caucus we were given the majority and we have buckled and not stood firm. now that they have gotten john boehner and kevin mccarthy out, that kept them feeling good and why do they want to buckle? their job is to stand firm. >> what do they want? >> a harder line from the republican leadership to enforce conservative principles. one said we want the house speaker to take on senate minority leader mitch mcconnell the republican leader in the senate and make him tougher. anybody who knows about the senate knows it's rare for the senate to tell the senate majority leader what to do. their demands is a high bar and kevin mccarthy said i can't meet their demands. >> paul ryan is laid out as the compromise candidate. >> the house ways and means committee, his announcement saying i don't want this job came out so fast, it almost broke the sound barrier, because he doesn't want to get involved in this and the reason is paul ryan has had lots of fights with
7:08 am
these conservatives over fiscal matters, over the ryan/murray budget and the government shutdown and it doesn't make sense he would be the bridge building consensus. >> the house ways and means can do a lot of thing about the economy and tax reform and all of that. >> if he wants to be president there is no road to the presidency through the house speakership because it's a tough job, as we are seeing. >> can anybody control these people that represent the freedom caucus? can anybody in the republican party deal with this. >> right now, it doesn't look like anybody can. >> because unless they get their by, they are willing to take the house down? >> well, yeah. because they think the house has been selling out republicans and conservatives for the last many years. finally their chance to stop that. >> thanks, john. >> on "face the nation" on sunday john will have the latest for the speaker of the house race and goes one-on-one with donald trump and his 2016 republican rival dr. ben carson. that is this weekend on cbs. a breaking story in arizona.

7:11 am
saber rattling between the united states and russia on the ukrainian border and going on this week in russia. mr. putin seems to be challenging that leadership. >> in what way? let's think about this. >> reporter: he has moved troops into syria for one. he has got people on the ground. >> right. >> two the russians are conducting military operations in the middle east for the first time since world war ii arming the people that we are spoust i -- supporting? >> that is leading, steve? let me ask you this question. when i came into office, ukraine was governed by a corrupt leader who was a stooge of mr. putin. syria was russia's only ally in the region. and, today, rather than being able to count on their support
7:12 am
and maintain the base they had some syria they have had a long time mr. putin is promoting his own troops and his own military just to barely hold together by a thread his sole ally. and -- >> he is challenging your leadership, mr. president. >> steve, i got to tell you, if you think that running your economy into the ground and having to send troops in in order to prop up your only ally is leadership, then we have got a different definition of leadership. >> steve kroft is here. >> wow! mr. kroft! >> i know. you've interviewed him many times and he is seems feisty this time. what does he say he is going to do about what russia is doing in syria? >> first of all, i can't really say very much about what we -- what's in the interview because the white house has embargoed it until sunday. mostly, he defends the positions that he is taken already and he
7:13 am
is taking but we talk about isis, we talk a lot about vladimir putin, the inability of the united states to identify and recruit and train any kind of a moderate force in syria. we talk about his leadership, whether it's strong or whether the u.s. is projecting strength or weakness in the middle east. >> can you say what he said about -- back to norah's question about him appearing to be very feisty. why do you think that is? >> well, i'm surmising that some of it has to do with the fact he is a lame duck and that when we were talking after the interview, he did say that he is finding this whole experience of not being on the ballot very liberating. >> liberating? >> liberating. yeah. he said that -- it's sort of taken fear out of the equation. he doesn't have to be quite so careful about what he says.
7:14 am
and i think you're seeing some of that. i think you saw -- maybe saw a little bit of it foreshadowing of it in the comments he made after this last school shooting. i think he is really -- he is sort of holding his ground. >> and he knows these things will extend beyond his watch and his ability to impact. >> right. we also talked about boehner. and we talked about the situation with the republicans in congress. >> can't wait. "60 minutes" on sunday. >> steve, thank you very much. >> i'm sorry. we also talked about hillary clinton's e-mails. >> oh, good. hillary clinton and joe biden and donald trump all of that if you watch steve's full report sunday on "60 minutes" here on cbs. thank you, steve. that's what you call a plug, steve kroft! new dangers this morning in south carolina after the deadly flooding. the disaster is blamed for 19 deaths in the carolinas. it causes as much as a billion dollars in damage there. the flood warnings are up. there is more water heading toward the southeastern part of south carolina. david begnaud is in andrews
