7:07 am
he argued it's all circumstantial evidence that points to some kind of agreement between trump and the highest reaches of the foreign russian government. podesta said the theft of ten years worth of e-mails from his g-mail account is now being investigated as part of fbi's larger probes of hacks into the dnc. the u.s. 13we8gs community said on friday it is confident the hacks were directed by the russian government. >> russian interference in this election and their attempt to influence on behalf of mr. trump is, i think, should be of utmost concern to all americans. >> reporter: podesta noted that long time trump confidant roger stone appeared to have advance notice of the hack tweeting in august, trust me, it will soon be podesta's time in the barrel and telling florida republicans recently that he was in touch

"that reporter he is talking about suffers from a chronic condition that impairs movement of his arms." i don't want a president who makes fun of me. i want a president who inspires me, and that's not donald trump.
8:00 am
? it is wednesday, october 12th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning.? more real news is ahead, including early voting now under way in more states. we will look at whether donald trump's new challenges to voting process could damage our democracy. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. despite that tweet storm, there were moments trump focused on something else. the possibility of losing this election. >> what is trump's strategy? >> he has turned to a strategy where he is going to turn out his core supporters and try to punish republicans not supporting him and make it as difficult as possible for a president clinton to govern.
8:01 am
all of that power is going to take some time. >> the united states military has flown in aid to haiti and for some the supplies can't come fast enough. >> president obama taking part in an espn town hall on issues of race, sports, and achievement. >> we all get knocked down in life. the question is how do you respond? >> hillary clinton campaigned in florida today with al gore. >> for those of you who remember the election of 2000 and what happened here in florida and across the country. >> you're making al gore go back to florida? that's so cruel! that is like making joe frazier go back to manila! i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. 27 days before the election,
8:02 am
hillary clinton and his fellow republicans. trump lashed out yesterday at house speaker paul ryan and other republicans. they are distancing themselves from him after a 2005 showed trump making sexually aggressive comments about women. >> donald trump tweeted yesterday it is so nice the shackles taken off of me and i can fight for america the way i want to. last night trump said the shackles were the weak and ineffective people within the party pushed wavering republicans over the edge that is sad. >> donald trump accused the clinton's last night at a rally in florida of cashing in during haiti's earthquake in 2009. a freedom of information act request. had he show the state department funneled requests from friend of bill clinton referred to as
8:03 am
initials. nancy cordes is in white plains, >> reporter: the requests that trump is referring to came from clinton acquaintance and clinton foundation donors who wanted to help with the relief work in haiti after that devastating earthquake back in 2010. one exchange between a clinton foundation director and the state department, the state department official wrote, i need you to flag when people are friends of wjc. william jefferson clinton. the same official wrote to one of the head, rolando is a close friend of the secretary and former president and he is wanting to get folks into haiti to work on electrical issues. the state department official wrote in another e-mail, is this an fob? if not, the person should go to the teams here are overwhelmed. these e-mails do not show whether the offers of help were purely charitable in nature but
8:04 am
offers were made with any financial motives as trump has suggested. and it's important to point out that back in 2010 it was well documented that the clinton foundation was funneling offers to help haiti to the state department. which was overwhelmed. bill clinton was the united nations special representative for haiti and coordinated the relief efforts there. former president george w. bush was also heavily involved in relief work in haiti. it's unclear whether his friends also because those e-mails weren't requested by the republican national committee. >> thanks. in iowa, yesterday, mike pence had to shut down a supporter who really wants them to win. >> if hillary clinton gets in, i, myself, i'm ready for a revolution because we can't have her in. >> don't say that. >> but i'm just saying. >> the woman said she is very
8:05 am
>> the best ante dote is be involved in the process. if you're concerned about voter integrity and you haven't signed up to be a poll watcher, to volunteer at a polling place, to be a part of the integrity of that process, then you need to do it. >> donald trump has repeatedly suggested that the election process is rigged. >> what a rig. we are in such a rigged system. it is terrible. and you got to watch your polling booths because i hear too manyto pennsylvania. certain areas. so go and vote and then go check out areas! because a lot of bad things happen. >> we have to make sure that this election is not stolen from us. >> trump has gone further and encouraging his supporters to observe voters at the polls. 39 states have voter challenger laws. they give private citizens the right to challenge the eligibility of voters in person on election day.
8:06 am
"scare the vote" looks into trump's claims and the lasting effect it might have on the democracy in this country. thank you for joining us. >> good to see you. >> reporter: in the article you say voter fraud is nearly 0% in the united states, yet, donald trump keeps raising it over and over and the effects could be devastating to this country. >> yeah. i think we talk a lot about the long-term effects of 2016 will be on the american public, right? certainly there is a pervasive sense that-of-look o need overhaul. the notion that the basic act of democracy of casting a vote is no longer fair and that our elections in some ways are no longer free. which is a suggestion we have been hearing from donald trump on the campaign trail as of late. the long-term and even medium-term effect on our democracy could be profound and not a position that america, which is largely seen as a model democracy around the world. >> profound, how do you think?
8:07 am
monitoring around the world and talked to folks at the u.n. they say the rhetoric we are hearing from donald trump the election is rigged in advance of the election that is rhetoric you hear from emerging and weak democracies. ironman rhetoric on "the new york times." this is not the norm of american politics and nor is the campaign is doing to sending private citizens out to the polls to watch and see what their other fellow americans are doing. >> on the other side the stories that the russians are trying to influence. >> absolutely. i think that is adding to this climate of insecurity and fear. however, the evidence is what it is. there are 1 in 15 million cases of voter fraud is statistically zero and doesn't exist as a percentage of the american votes cast. does that mean our system is perfect, that we don't need
8:08 am
need to increase voter registration and turnout and all of the rest? >> or does it mean something has changed? >> well, i think that the question of cyberwar fare and cybermonitoring is broad and that is a different issue than necessarily donald trump is calling for. private citizens can't do cybermonitoring in person. >> it's heating up as his numbers are dropping. >> i think that is not a coincide. if things are not going your way, challenge the results. >> one, it is easier to vote and we will have as much as 40% of the vote will be early. in fact, there are many people believe that florida, north carolina, maybe nevada, ohio, could be decided even before the election. >> sure. >> on the flip side, republicans, for the last six year, have made it harder to vote in person. we now have 34 states that require voters to show some form of identification at the polls.
8:09 am
sure the voting is fire. >> legislatures have moved forward these voter i.d. laws and this is reported today in political. people are saying the rhetoric about the system being rigged is dangerous. there are people on both sides of the aisle that recognize the tenor in american politics that is being driven in this particular moment is not a good one in the long term. >> but the long-term effect, do you think? >> look. if you have a section of one of our two major political parti that no longer believes it matters or fair when americans turn out to vote the implications are profound. if you have people not participating in the democratic process how do you have a representative democracy? >> i think how it's going to play out. i can challenge anybody who is voting? what are my qualifications? >> we don't want voters intimidated at the polls. that is not a good process and not good activity on election day. >> thank you. >> let's hope for no hanging
8:10 am
president obama talked about balancing his work in family life in an espn town hall last night. the president said it's an issue that he and michelle wrestle with. >> my favorite sound bite from michelle about this is, i remember right after malia was born, very early on, a friend of mine called to see if i wanted to play basketball. i said, no, man, to babysit malia. i hung up the phone. she turned to me cindy, you know what if it's your own child, it's not babysitting! so i would say to the soon to be dads here, just understanding the level of responsibility and commitment that is required and the things that you have to cut
8:11 am
>> mr. obama said he knows that when he looks back on his life, it's not the political accomplishments that will stand out. what he remembers is, quote, holding hands with my daughters and taking them down to a park. >> don't you like him pointing that out? it's not your own child when you're babysitting. need to send that note for a lot of dads from time to time. >> it is true in the end. >> that will stand out. >> you remember your personal memories of your family. >> good to hear a man sort of talking about what are these adopted. a single tweet began an online movement in response to the tape featuring donald trump's vulgar comments. how the #not okay prompted a

>> reporter: this is high tech lynching. >> reporter: hill had to defend her account. how does she think the response to the trump controversy compares? >> it's a difference. i don't believe that would have happened in 1991. >> reporter: you don't think there would have been this kind of outcry? >> absolutely not. i think in 1991, people were really not accustomed to hearing about sexual harassment and they certainly weren't accustomed to hearing that it was a problem. >> reporter: the next step, she effects on trump and his presidential candidacy. >> what i think should have been the focus of the conversation is the harm that sexual harassment causes to the victims, and how we are going to ever prevent it, if we don't value the lives of women. >> reporter: women who responded to kelly oxford by the tens of thousands. >> i was happy that women were
8:20 am
upset at the same time that there were so many women that basically -- basically every woman has a story like this. >> this is a powerful moment for us, to understand that and to think about, okay, what do we do next to make sure this doesn't happen to another generation? >> reporter: of course, there was no twitter in 1991 but hill, who is now a professor, says over the year, she has gotten thousands of letters and we were talking about the fact that if you read these on twitter, can only read them for so long. you can read only so many letters before you have to stop. >> she has a powerful question at the end of your piece. what do we know and prevent it from happening? so many focus on the guy and the effect it has to the women. >> it's an opportunity to keep the conversation going. >> tim tebow has made his much-anticipated debut in the fall league playing baseball. now what happened in the stands. we will be right back. see me.
