celebration. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." a republican senator's making an extraordinary direct challenge to president trump's legitimacy. arizona's jeff flake writes in the "washington post" this morning, quote, it's time we all say enough. >> flake said yesterday he will not seek re-election as a republican. he writes in his op-ed, we can no longer remain silent, merely observing this train wreck passively, as if waiting for someone else to do something. flake's opposition came as president trump met with senate republicans on capitol hill. it was meant to show party unity of the issue of tax reform. >> that's not what happened. this morning we're talking to senator flake about why he's taking on the president. but first nancy cordes is on capitol hill with the growing republican split. nancy, good morning. >> he took things much
this time, heading to the senate floor to call the president dangerous to democracy itself. he and his go president obama colleague bob corker say that they can express what many of their colleagues are thinking because they are retiring at the end of this term. >> mr. president,ly not be complicit or silent. >> in the blistering 17-minute speech, flake said president trump's behavior is debasing the nation. >> it's turning us into a backward-looking people. >> the white house press secretary said flake was right. >> based on the lack of support he has from the people of arizona, it's probably a good move. >> his approval right is at 30%. his primary challenger kelli ward had more.
in a tweet mr. trump threw his support behind ward. >> i look forward to being a part of that class of 2019. >> last night she called flake's retirement another win in ban non's self-declared war on the republican establishment. >> the president trump has great difficulty with the truth. >> senator corker said he regrets backing mr. trump and won't do it again. >> i don't know why he lowers himself to such a low, low standard. >> mr. trump calls him a lightweight and incompetent. there was no name-calling at the luncheon. >> do you have an obligation as the leader of the party to weigh in on the very serious criticisms of the president. >> what i have an obligation to do is to try to achieve the greatest cohesion that i can. >> flake's friends in the senate say it was short-sighted for back nonto d
vote and fiscal conservative who has backed a lot of the president's agenda, norah, even though he's been highly critical of the president's character. >> nancy, thanks. senator flake started his op-ed said i cannot help but they of joseph whelp. he was a well known army sergeant who called out a senator in 1964. >> i nerve approved of your recklessness. you've done enough. have you no sense of decency sir? >> arizona jeff flake joins us now from capitol hill. senator, good morning. that is 1954. you write we face such a time now. why are you comparing president trump to senator joseph
>> this is a time when joseph mccarthy had gone on a lot of years and done damage and no one would speak up. there were a few voices that were raised, but until this time, until this hearing when the chief counsel for the army, joseph welch actually stood up, you have no decurrency sir, that really turned things around and at that point that was kind of a threshold that i guess question had to get to and people spoke out which is what i did yesterday. >> you seem to be igniting a movement. you write, it is time to take a stand against trump. if he is dangerous to democracy, as you say, should he be removed from office? >> i don't think any of those remedies are justified, i
high crimes, misdemeanors, people talk about impeachment on the left, i don't think that's the direction to go. nor do i think the 25th amendment is either. i do think members of congress ought to speak out. if the president follows through only some of the policies or threats he's made with regard to the first amendment, for example, or if he continues to -- in terms of the tweets and just kind of the debasing statements that he's made and also on the foreign stage. i think we need to be incredibly careful about what we're doing and that's what bob corker has expressed concern about. >> senator, how long have you been thinking about this, and was there a final straw for you? >> well, i spoke out during the campaign and actually before that, long before donald trump ran
conspiracy theory about president obama that was embraced by too many. and then during the campaign when the president talked about the mexican immigrants in ways that were unbecoming, talking about my colleague john mccain, how he couldn't be respected because he was captured. >> senator, two points. one, some skeptics will say it's easy to do this when you're facing a very uphill campaign and you're likely to lose, number one, and you should speak to that, and number two, you seem to be saying to your fellow republicans, if you do not speak out now, this is so serious, you're complicit in the actions of the president. >> i do think the longer we go, the more this behavior is normalized. and that is a problem. we can't allow our dialogue to continue to coursen. already, i t
the effects of this new era. >> if you don't speak out, you're complicit in the crime, however the president is doing it. >> i think we have a responsibility as elected officials to speak out. when there's behavior beyond the pale and then some of what we've seen fits in that category. >> do you think you can change the president? >> you know, i think all of us have been waiting for nine months for that pivot that was going to occur toward more appropriate behavior and stability. we haven't seen it. i think it's time that we -- you know, that we stand up and be a little more forceful. >> how many fellow republicans have said privately what you're saying publicly? >> i've talked to some colleagues who haven't been as vocal. i don't want to speak for them. i know there's concern. i know you will in the future
>> senator flake, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. hillary clinton's campaign helped pay for ties. it contained unsubstantiated claims connecting the president to russian interest. president trump questioned the origin. he tweeted who paid for it, russia, fbi, dems, or all. jeff pegues is in washington. good morning. >> good morning. the dossier has gained credibility. cbs news confirmed earlier this year that parts of it were being used as a roadmap as agents unraveled alleged trump connections to russia. but with new ties to the clinton campaign coming to light the supporters are calling the

looking into whether the trump campaign conspired with russian operatives. last night there was a tweet it will will have been money well spent. earlier this year it was revealed that the fbi had agreed to pay christopher steele, but the bureau ended the arrangement after steele was publicly identified. >> thank you so much. an investigation will look into an obama-era uranium deal in 2010 when clinton was secretary of state. republicans want to know if the purchase of american uranium mines by a russian-backed corporation was investigated by the obama-related justice department. democrats call the probes a diversion from an investigation of the trump campaign and

honing to see this relief pitcher. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. president trump is firing back this morning after extraordinary criticism from republican senators jeff flake and bob corker after announcing plans to retire. both are raising doubts about mr. trump's fitness to serve. >> the president tweeted the reason flake and corker dropped out of the senate race is very simple. thaw had zero chance of being re-elected. now acting hurt and wounded. flake said this is the moment to stand up to the president. >> we must stop pretending that the degradation of our politics and the executive branch are normal. they're not normal. reckless, outrageous, and undignified behavior has becomed
excused and countenanced than telling it like it is when it's undignifie undignified. >> he writes in the "washington post," nine months more than enough to say loudly and clearly this is enough. corker called the president untruthful. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. good morning. >> good morning. they have called out the president before but say they have much more free thom do so so. they did not hold back. corker essentially called the president a habitual liar who's a bad role model while flake said the president is dangerous to democracy itself and republicans who don't speak out are complicit. this criticism did not come out when the president had lunch with senate republicans on the hill yesterday. he later called it a lovefest withstanding ovations. now, flake's retirement has come
as something of a surprise up here on capitol hill. million for next year's race, wu a recent poll did peg his poll at just 30% and he was facing a tough primary challenge from kelli ward. a source close to ban says he sees these retimers as the layest in a series of wins which includes his candidate roy moore unseating the alabama candidate a couple of weeks ago. mitch mcconnell said he's made it clear bannon's strategy is accountable for a number of losses in the republican election and he went to the floor to praise flake right after that speech called flake a very fine man with high principles. >> we saw that. thank you, nancy. cbs news contributor ed o'keefe is a contributor editor
to the "washington post." good morning, eddet what a tay >> whew. >> whew is what everybody is says. jeff flake is saying now is the time we say enough and stand up. are we going to keep hearing privately what people are saying? >> i think the dam's starting to break a little bit. the fact that you've seen former president bush last week who didn't use the president's name but alluded to hum. john mccain has been at it for several months. bob corker and now jeff flake is saying publicly what he's been saying privately for more than a year. >> will others join in? >> we'll see. colleagues of his are sitting in the seats near tears understanding what's going on is, as he said, not normal, is seriously eroding the fabric of the country, and i suspect we'll see more speak up. >> here's what's interesting.
tom freeman the secretary. he says you need to leave mattis and kelly and say if he does not change his ways, you should all quit en masse. >> that's what members of congress have been saying. for a long time they say reince priebus as an ally. he's gone. now they look to the three in national security and look at them as the last best hope. >> what does flake resigning allow him to do? >> it allows him to speak up. it's important to remember, he's not a moderate mainstream republican. he's an awfully nice guy, good looking, whatever, but libertarian, staunch. >> budget hawk. >> budget hawk. he wants to maintain global trade deals.
don't be surprised if you see him put up age tax bill. >> we'll, steve bannon is says, listen, he had no chance of winning anyway. do they have a point? >> there was a foot before ban nonstarted. this was the woman running against jeff flake in the primary. hat done this against john mccain. now with president trump in office, she was making an ideological argument against jeff flake and it was sticking. he was down double digits to her and would have been against a moderate democrat is congresswoman who's going to run for the senate seat next year. >> here's what question ask. do you think this will change the president in any way? sfloo you saw the tweet already this morning that suggests, no, and you saw the white house reaction yesterday which says these guys are basically sore losers. there's no kalgs that will happen.
it's also important to know, flake told you guys, there's no there's no reason to use the 25th amendment, but there are reasons for republicans an others to speak up forcefully against him. >> ed o'keefe, thanks for joining us, we appreciate it. they want to know how a tiny company was awarded a contracting too restore electricity in puerto rico. white fish energy had only two employees. well, the company's now hiring hundreds of workers on the island. members of the house committee want to know if the choice was cost-effective. the department says zinke did not play a role in the contract. puerto rico's governor has ordered a review of the contract but he said white fish energy was the one company who did not require a down payment.
we take you to the bunkers where they monitor world-famous photographer annie leibovitz experienced an exciting life when she was on tour with the rolen stones. reque >> i was bright eyed. >> you were hanging out. >> nobody was really out there. >> you were hanging out. >> i never hung out. >> come on. >> i never hung out. >> ahead, leibovitz opens up how she's mature and how her work has evolved. you're watching "cbs this

congress is debating the first new branch in years. last year on space defense. a military base inside colorado's cheyenne mountain plays a critical role in that strategy. bianna golodryga visited that complex from deep inside the cave. >> sorry, new york. this is truly the city that never sleeps. it is said it acts like the human brain stem. the survival bunker pulls in information, makes sense of it, and passes it along to the britain or our country's decision-makers. there's also a reason they're known as america's fortress. >> it is the nerve center for the blanket of defense for the u.s. >> that nerve center is here in colorado springs, an impenetrab impenetrable fortress beneath 2,000 feet of granite.
>> we provide 24/7 global watch on all ballistic missile threats. the sensors that are global are feeding data into cheyenne mountain but processed and dissem nate. >> reporter: this was built at the height of the cold war in the 1950s and 1960s to defend long-range soviet bombers. tensions have since thawed. but russia and china are developing technology that could disable or destroy america's satellites, and north korea have launched a litany of military tests. >> reporter: is this facility equipped to handle what's gone on in the last 20 years? >> it is. it's a high-energy electronic pulse. >> reporter: the underground bunker is survivable so the agencies inside can survey the
skies and provide sety the u.s. and canada. they have two 25-ton doors that would seal the mountain and everyone inside the base within 40 seconds. >> since the cold war has there been a need or threat or scare when both doors were closed? >> september 11th, 2001 was the only time the doors had ever been closed. there was an aircraft we lost contract with heading toward colorado, so we closed the blast doors. >> this is an underground stirks a hospital and a fire department. firefighter kerry thompson run drills so crew is capable of responding to any security issues. >> we've heard it actually has happened. >> absolutely. it's something we've trained on,
and it has happened. >> if there is a size mick 1,300 rolled springs isolate the building. >> the buildings will sway in their chambers and continue to go on mission. >> reporter: despite the gravity defying efforts, some congressional leaders accuse the pentagon of not doing enough to prioritize space. it calls for the creation of a new combat-red space corps by 2019. it's pitting the two chambers on a collision course over space. >> the first indication of a launch comes from our satellites. >> reporter: general jay raymond heads up u.s. space command and is opposed to creating a separate space corps. >> how worried are you and what do you say to those who argue that we've dropped the ball? >> the air force has been leaders in space for over 60 years.
today there's nothie joint force that isn't enabled by space. our potential adversaries have had a front row seat and have watched us. to with honest, they probably don't like what they see. >> and yet it may surprise you to know that space is a bit like the wild west. there is no agreed upon code of conduct. there's a u.n. treaty that calls for the peaceful use of outer space, but there are more than ever battling for skies and it seems to be one for all. each has their own rules when it comes to outer space, which is baffling. there are 300 that work there during the weekend end 1rks 50 during the week. and they gave me this gifting a piece of cheyenne mountain. there you go. >> it could make a beautiful necklace. >> and add to the gayle collection.

ah, ah, ah! (laughter) in the wake of the d ralcandidate for'm governor,rtham, and i sponsored this ad. narrator: they call him enron ed. because washington, dc lobbyist ed gillespie represented the worst of the worst. lenders trying to keep student loan rates high. corporations sending jobs overseas. and of course the enron scandal. now, enron ed is lobbying for donald trump's agenda. like cuts to virginia school funding, and taking away healthcare from thousands of virginians.
albt universe worked, but he also had a vision of happiness. a note from the scientist sold for $1.3 million yesterday at an auction in jerusalem. ienstein reportedly wrote it in 1922 while staying at a japanese hotel. he just learned he would earn an ward for physics. he gave was broke and gave it a tip. >> it seems ironic. let's have a calm and modest night and it sells for $1 million. >> we shout put that on instagram and see if people agree with that. >> i'm not sure i agree with it. >> i like calm, i'm not sure about the modest life. >> you are modest. sometimes. >> yeah, sometimes. have you seen my shoes?
people show up late. for a baby's heart in thel, first 12 weeks of pregnancy. and a future when prenatal pediatrics leads to healthier children. it's being the number one newborn intensive care unit in the country. and giving parents peace of mind. it's less recovering in our bed, and more jumping on yours. stronger is standing out and standing proud. because we don't just want your kids to grow up.

"the wall street journal" says people are getting close. the 2018 winter games open in february.
that city is just 40 miles from the dmc. the olympic flame for the games was lit yesterday in greece. ticket sales in south korea have been slow. >> the "new york daily news" says lord & taylor is selling its flagship store. lord & taylor will retain a small amount of space in the nearly 100-year-old billing to keep the store open. the conversion to office space is another sign that brick and mortar retail sales are declining. for the record, let me say i love lord & taylor. >> me too. temperatures in the east have soared in the 70s. the "times" says hotumn is when
it's late in october and we're still wearing shorts and hitti your pocket. >> it's one of the technological advancements in 2007, the same year that saw amazon's kindle. >> this combination of events led thomas friedman to call the year a technological inflection point. he said in his latest book. the book is called "thank you for being late "an optimist's guide to thriving in the nations." it's now available in paperback. tom friedman, we're pleased to have you here. >> thank you. >> you have a column. you simply write a letter to the secretary of defense, mr. mattis, secretary mattis, and you say to him, secretary
mais diagnosis of the problem. you need a coup. you need to tell the secretaries if trump doesn't change they should all quit. you say that's how you talk to a bully bully bu bully. that's the only language he understands. >> yesterday we saw senator flake do the same thing. everyone is giving us diagnoses, but there's actually no action around it. i still think the impeachment, 25th amendment, is really unlikely, but i do think people have credibility inside the nation and it really is one general left standing now and that's secretary of defense mattie who could have an impact. >> how do we know they're not trying now, doing the best they can?
>> i think that's a very good question and that may well be by the things they're seeing especially with the bit political buildups like north korea korea talked about that they have to be frightened. >> on the other hand, he has a lot of support. some say he's gone in there to do exactly what the people ee electricaled him to do. what do you say to that? >> you know, gayle, came from london late last night and what i saw in london, this're dealing with this brexit. pulling out of the european union. brexit is what happens when you follow the advice of someone who has no second paragraph. so there are all these people who called for brexit in london, boris jonsshnnssonjonsson, bori. they have no idea. they have no second pair grachlt when you follow people with no second paragraph, wreks it is what you get.
there are a lot of britting saying what do you do now starting with the prime minister. you have the danger of the same thing here. in a time of acceleration, you know, which is really what the book is about small errors in navigation can have huge consequences. when we go through all of these rabid changes and a bad leader, you can get so far off track that the pain can be enormous. >> it's so interesting. when something gets analyzed in 140 words and we put it up on the screen like it's a statement when it's really kind of a blurting. >> that's no way to run a railroad let aileen a country. >> you traveled to china where they just lad the 19th party congress.
where is c a path to the future. >> what you sense with china, the leaders wake up every day and ask one thing. what world am i living in, what's the biggest trends in the world. it's always in climate change, globalization, technology. then they're saying how do i get the best out o these and cushion the worst. you don't have that feeling here, that these leaders are waking up and saying what world do we live in. the republicans are pushing for tax cuts. is that the rieng thing? wrong thing? no one's giving us a dying knee sis. here's where i think we are, here's how we get the best out of it. this is where we cushion it. >> do you have a message? yesterday jeff flake said what will we have to say to generations to come. >> and we'll be held accountable. >> for parents -- i have a quote in the book from my friend
heather mcgowan when things really fast. >> in the age of acceleration, don't ask your kids what they want to be when they grow up. other than policeman and fireman, the jobs won't be here. will you have an agile mind? what you learn in your first year of college may be outdateded by your forth. so what you talk about is how you inspire people to be lifelong learners horks we get the government to incentivize. >> and the type of person you want to be. >> i like to see someone who's on time. >> you know, the book is about everything that's old and slow. old and slow stuff is better more than ever. >> i like a 15-minute grace period. always better toon time. thank you, thomas.
