of representatives. >> reporter: one called it a >> we need somebody willing to negotiate and talk to the other side and those are not bad ways to govern. >> reporter: three days ago, north carolina republican walter jones sint a cryptic letter to kathy mcmorris rogers saying if anything candidate for speaker has created any misdeeds, he should withdraw from the race. mccarthy was asked if that had anything to do with his decision. >> no, no. come on. >> reporter: it's now unclear who will be leading the house which needs to vote to raise the debt ceiling by the end of this month and needs to figure out by december. speaker boehner says he will stay on until a new speaker can be chosen but ironically, he stepped down because he was

votes and is it clear that paul ryan has the votes of the freedom caucus? >> the 40 on votes, their 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
7:08 am
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 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 >> well, yeah. because they think the house has been selling out republicans and years. that. >> thanks, john. >> on "face the nation" on sunday john will have the latest for the speaker of the house

asked president obama in a new interview for this sunday's "60 minutes." here is a preview. >> reporter: a year when we did this interview there was some 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 ing -- 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.

7:14 am
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. and i think you're seeing some of that. i think you saw -- maybe saw a 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. >> 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 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.

7:33 am
huff, why is she allowed to go forward when no one else is? very simple. she claims she was a victim of childhood sexual abuse and the civil law says if you are a child victim and you go through years of psychological abuse but somehow you can't tie it up as to why you're under this mental ankle anguish. once you tie it up in your own mind and say the incident was bill cosby then you can go forward. >> there is no statute of limitation? >> very good. mr. cosby says, wait a minute, she tried to sell her story to the "national enquirer." she knew this was tied up long ago. that is why we are here. the court decided it was not going to intuven. ervene. >> what is happening at the deposition? >> the deposition could go on days and days. it's up to gloria allred. she doesn't have to stop and adjourn to monday, tuesday, wednesday.

7:38 am
well under way for that massive military parade on saturday. driving down the street, we can see flags out, people practicing dance routines at street corners, or putting the finishing touches on the city paintsing the lanes of the sidewalk or cutting the grass. i saw one man clipping a patch of grass with scissors. norah? >> >> you do see that sometimes in asia. fascinating. seth, thank you very much. >> you can't talk to the old man but you can talk to the lady in the red sweater. coming up, we will take you to what may be the loneliest airport in the world that costs hundreds of millions of dollars. ahead, why it's missing planes and passengers. if you're heading out the door, set your dvr so you can watch "cbs this morning" any time you'd like.

7:46 am
>> dean, that is one of those things you just go, dog-head like, what? >> dean, who is footing the bill on this? is it taxpayers? who is losing out? >> reporter: the local taxpayers, the county are the ones holding most of the debt for this airport. not the federal taxpayers. >> thank you, dean. >> maybe they will drum you up more traffic now that people know about it. thank you, dean. ahead, we take you to the white house for breaking news on a drone that crashed nearby. watch your step. stormy weather creates chaos during game one of the american league division hi, everybody. happy friday. i'm meteorologist danielle niles tracking areas of rain that will mostly miss us just to the north for now, but the showers and downpours will arrive later on today. temperatures rise up to around 70 degrees. the wind will be gusting at times 30 to 40 miles per hour. late in the day here come the

8:01 am
there was one in lafayette park on the north side of the white house earlier this year and back in january someone flew a slightly larger drone that landed on the warehouse grounds and resulted in a lockdown here at the white house. the president was not here at the time. but that was kind of the wake-up call to the issue of drones here at the white house and there have been at least two more since then. >> another wake-up call this morning, indeed. chip, thank you so much. republicans have no clear idea this morning who will replace john boehner as house speaker. kevin mccarthy surprised everyone thursday by dropping out. >> north carolina congressman walter jones sent a letter this week to one of the party leaders who said any candidate who has admitted any misdeeds should withdraw from the race. mccarthy said that in hnothing to do with his decision. senior republicans hose that house and ways means chairman

8:05 am
in fact, i know him longer than i've known kevin mccarthy. paul ryan prioritizes his family. he has got young kids and that matters to him and i respect that. imagine someone who puts their family in their commitments ahead of politics. he is focused on his job as chairman of ways and means so i can understand why he would say no. however, i'm hoping that he changes his mind because he is the only one who can talk to the conservatives, the moderates. he is the only one who understands the rules and he's got a brain for policy which is what we need in washington right now. >> frank luntz, thank you so much. >> thank you.

8:07 am
liked walker, so now all of the press is, well, we put all this money behind walker. >> right. >> and had he to drop out. he didn't put a penny. david said he liked him. that doesn't mean we are -- we picked him. >> reporter: were you surprised that walker's candidacy didn't resonate in any way? >> well, i thought it would resonate better, but he wasn't a very good campaigner. you may agree with this on a number of issues or we agree with you on a number of issues, but if you're presenting him in a way that doesn't resonate, that doesn't do any good. so we can't support you. that's -- we are not interested in -- in attacking windmills. >> reporter: there are reports you're increasing interesting in fiorina. >> that is -- listen. if is there a report about me, just say, okay, that's it. probably the opposite. and then you'll be on firmer ground. >> reporter: so you're denying that report? >> absolutely! >> freedom partners, the
