7:10 am
control the place narrowly they require the democrats to get votes in order to hit a 60-vote threshold to avoid these procedural blocks that can happen on capitol hill. democrats say if you want our votes, sure we'll fund the government, but there are some priorities we have we want to address. the big one, of course is the fate of these immigrant d.r.e.a.m.ers. it's been on the table since septembr when the president started the clock, ending the program in march. they say why not do it now when everyone's got an eye on the bill they're ultimately going to support. >> they're trying to get democrats to do things the way democrats are with daca. are democrats totally unified in this strategy to use this strategy on daca? >> no. you'll see a handful vote to keep the government open. all of them are running for re-election this year in states donald trump won by double digits in 2016. they know they're going home to

morning.
7:57 am
it is friday january 19th talk with republican senator cory gardner about what it will take to avoid a government shutdown tonight. plus "48 hours" takes a look at the aaron hernandez case through the eyes of james patterson. but first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> the senate has less than eight hours to avoid a shutdown. it's a high-stakes game of who blinks first with government funding held in the balance. >> let's be honest. the government shutdown on the one-year anniversary of president trump's inauguration? not exactly an advertisement for control in washington. >> who will be to blame if the government is shut down. >> if you ask around here republicans say democrats. democrats say republicans. some around congress say it's all of them. >> he was arrested for the
7:58 am
murder of his mother and stepfather. police linked him to seven other killings. the cdc says the rate of hospitalizations for the flu has doubled since december. health officials and fallies are trying to spread the warning that the virus does not discrimination. professional race car driver danica patrick is dating again after breaking up with her previous boyfriend, a nascar driver. yeah. when asked why that relationship didn't work out, patrick explained, we were just going in circles. koenen had to hold his circle circles. right now democrats are rejecting gop proposals. the deadlock threaten os to shut down. the last one was in 2013 and that lasted 16 days.
7:59 am
the house passed a bill last night to fund the government through february 16th. that includes the extension for c.h.i.p. the children's health insurance program which was added to gain democratic votes. >> president trump praised the house vote. he tweeted now the democrats need to vote. shutdown coming, question mark? nancy cordes is up on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. so here's where we stand right now. the funding bill did make "i" way out of the house successfully by and large with republican votes, but senate republicans are in a much trickier situation. in order to get 60 votes today, they need the support of at least ten senate democrats and maybe more because some republicans like south carolina's lindsey graham has said they're voting know. arizona's jeff flake said he is leaning no. the democrat chuck schumer is now proposing a very short-term
8:00 am
spending bill, funding the government for just a few days while they work out a deal over daca. he says this hardball strategy is the only way to force gop leaders to the table before hundreds of thousands of gop o p d.r.e.a.m.ers face deportation. it's putting hundreds of thousands of workers on edge. the senate republican mitch mcconnell accused the democrats of creating a crisis that doesn't actually need to be addressed until earl marchy march but he also admitted he's having trouble crafting a daca compromise because he doesn't know where the president stands. >> nancy cordes thanks. cory gardner is also on capitol hill and is part of the senate budget committee. senator, good morning. it's good to have you. >> good morning. >> senator mcconnell has said it
8:01 am
ee difficult to know where the president is. senator grailham has said the same thing. there was a time congress put a bill on the floor and they would sign it or not sign it. why aren't they doing that? >> look. i'm part of a bipartisan working group, a group of six that has put a bill together to solve this daca challenge, but we have time. i think it's irresponsible to shut the government down when we still have time to work we're still communicating, we still have opportunities to solve this problem. what washington doesn't need to do is pick up its sticks and go to its collective partisan corners. the shutdown politics we're seeing today are simply ridiculous. wh the blame? how about a bunch of washington bozos who can't seem to get the job done. >> one of the arguments for using the shutdown as lefb raj the president changing his opinion a lot, the only way to get the bozos in line is lining this up. >> i'm old enough to remember
8:02 am
when chuck schumer was asking for a clean solution to keep the government open. simply chaos. to turn around and reject a that they absolutely refuse to agree longest funding opeever received. to reject this is irresponsible. look. we have time to get our wor to see this done sooner rather than later. i think it's absolutely criticale. but to solve these problems, you don't do it by simply throwing a temper tantrum and shutting the government down. irresponsible. >> what about the democrats idea of hammering out a short spending bill. >> chuck shum weren't to the floor to complain about bad policies of a continuing resolution and his solution is a shorter term. second verse same as the first. look. if congress had a yelp rating i'm pretty sure it would be low. >> meantime the clock is tickig senator. what's your prediction?
8:03 am
>> i hope that adults in the room will come together and say, look, we're going to continue finding a solution for children who came to this country through no fault of their ownful we have a responsibility to do thatnd i believe there's anonymity to do that. senator, do you know any d.r.e.a.m.ers? >> look. i live in a town with many. first generation americans. our daughter 14 years old has many classmates where the only country they have ever known is america. it would hurt our communities, our men and women in uniform. you just did a story on the flu epidemic. what happens to cdc epidemic if a the government shuts down? let's do it responsibly. >> we're not going to call you bozos, but both sides say they
8:04 am
want the same thing. you sound like squabbling siblings where your mom is at the driver's seat saying knock this off work this out. >> that's exactly what i'm saying. that's exactly what has to happen. >> all right, senator gardner. i can't wait to see how this turns out. on sunday john signs off as "face the nation." single tear. eight years ago is when he first sat in the chair in 2009. >> "face the nation" with chief washington correspondent bob schieffer, and now from washington substituting for bob sheefr cbs news legal analyst john dickerson. >> welcome again to the broadcast. bob schieffr is off this morning. >> look at john dickerson. on sunday he'll talk about the government funding and the standoff with mick mulvaney and senator dianne feinstein. how are you feeling? >> i'm feeling very happy to be here with you.

8:13 am
body no gun. >> in the man's wallet they found an i.d. oweddin lloyd, 27 years old. he played in 2017 for the boston ban did. >> you got a call from the police. >> i'm sorry mochlt yourm. oden was shot and killed. >> everybody out there is a it can't possibly be that aaron hernandez hernandez. >> oden got to know lloyd because they were dating sisters. apparently they hit it off. >> i knew he was haiging out with mr. hernandez. >> watching mr. hernandez on the football field was magical. >> i'm not sure you'll ever see another guy that could do what he could do. >> he signs a $40 million contract with the patriots. has got it made. >> this is probably one of the best days of my field, aaron was just charismatic. if you'd see aaron, he was always cracking a joke. >> to me a great guy, love of
8:14 am
my life, father of my child. >> he had a secret life. >> his passing away was one of the most damaging points in his light. he went the other way. >> aaron hernandez was pulled out of his home in handcuffs this morning charged with murder. >> this has got to be a mistake. >> involved with murder? i could see that. i know he fooled a lot of people into thinking he was a great guy. me, i'm one of them. >> guilty of murder in the first degree. >> i was devastated completely devastated. my whole world changed. he's all i know. >> you hears stories from the fall from grace and this might be one of the most tragic of all time. >> this is where the clock ran out for aaron hernandez. he killed himself in his cell yards from here in this >> he wasn't an evil man, no he

wasn't. he was a sick man. what made him sick was football. >> "48 hours" contributor james patterson joins us now. good morning. >> good morning. >> we know cte is a brain disease and is cautioned -- we should say linked with repeated blows to the head. his brain was given to boston university. >> weirdly, my niece who is a neurologist at boston university, she actually handled his brain. >> what did they found? >> they found for his age the amount of damage they had never seen in anybody under 45. he had severe damage. is so much bigger than cte. >> i think it's much more complicated. >> why? >> i think if you take a guy who has psych co-pathic tendencies -- look. most people who have kill people. this guy definitely killed one, tried to kill another one and
8:16 am
maybe killed two others. but i think with cte, their psych oh pa thick tendencies and an incredible amount of drug use. >> what first drew you do this story? >> a number of things. my family moved to boston when i was 19 -- a teenager. i was a patriots fan. that's a piece of it. my initial reaction when i heard he was involved is oh, my gosh we've got glock and -- this can't happen. we can't break up this -- nobody believed it. the detectives when they found his name on the keys they said it can't be that aaron hernandez. there was that. all the violence that had happened from university of florida days. you know there are at least four possible murders that this guy committed. so that was intriguing tome. i do think this is the most complicated, interesting murder
8:17 am
story in the last 25 years including o.j. >> why? >> o.j. was a simple -- look. whatever did or didn't happen there, it was one incident. here it was several incidents and it kept getting worse and worse and worse. i do think that the suicide is probably cte-related. >> related. >> mm-hmm. >> and i think he was really -- during the last year or so he was really off his rocker. but interesting father figures could appear. urban meyer was a real father figure and did a great job for him at university of florida. bible study was brought to his house all the time. and the sheriff at one of the prisons, sheriff hodge i think, also became a father figure for him, and that seemed to calm him somewhat. >> you gave uslly good tease. >> i'll tell you what. this show -- what's going to knock people's socks off, this guy, he's so handsome his smile is incredible. he had so many gifts, a
