welcome to "cbs this morning." lots of stuff in that eye opener. you know what stood out to me, tom brady, 500. 500 passes. why is that a big deal? >> that's only the third quarterback in nfl history. >> that's a lot. >> he's unstoppable. >> he's had a night loce long c we start with this. drama and controversy over the future of the supreme court is set to end in the next 36 hours. the senate will decide this morning whether to send the president's nomination of brett kavanaugh to a final vote. expected early tomorrow night. republicans, as you know, controlled the senate 51-49. so the gop can only afford to have one of its senators vote no. >> three republican senators are considered undecided. senator susan collins, jeff flake and lisa murkowski. sources tell cbs news vice president pence will be in
7:04 am
washington this weekend in case he has to vote to break a tie. in ove a fbi probe of sexual misconduct against kavanaugh. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. today is the day we should know once and for all whether kavanaugh has the support he needs to get confirmed. that's because the way this small number of undecided senators votes to end debate could indicate how they plan to vote on final confirmation tomorrow. as forces on both sides pile on the pressure all the way to the end. >> is that justice? >> no. >> reporter: in a final bid before the vote, anti-kavanaugh protesters spent night on capitol hill grounds, egged on by democrats. >> the fbi investigation was a sham. >> reporter: kavanaugh's confirmation hinges now on one democrat and three republicans. a cording to a summary released overnight by the judiciary committee, the fbi interviewed ten people who might have had
7:05 am
firsthand knowledge of the sexual assault allegations by dr. christine blasey ford and deborah ramirez. for ford, the fbi spoke with three people she claimed were at the party in question, mark judge, p.j. smyth and leyland keyser. they also spoke with timothy gaudette and christopher garrett, kavanaugh's classmates who were referenced on his calendars. the fbi interviewed deborah ramirez, along with two eyewitnesses named by ramirez, and a close friend from college. according to the republican summary, the fbi found no corroboration of the allegations made by dr. ford and ms. ramirez. >> neither the judiciary committee, nor the fbi, could locate any third parties who can attest to any of these allegations. >> reporter: still, north dakota democrat heidi heitkamp announced she's a no. >> i can't get up in the morning and look at the life experience hat i've had and say yes to
7:06 am
judge kavanaugh. >> this confirmation process has become a national disgrace. >> reporter: in an op-ed released thursday night, kavanaugh admitted he might have been too emotional at times last week. i know that my tone wasrp and i said a fewha s things i sd not have said. wrote, it reflected my overwhelming frustration at being wrongly accused. blasey ford's lawyers called the investigation a stain on the process, because the fbi declined to interview friends and others who could have backed her up. >> the report ignores some of the absolutely crucial witnesses. >> reporter: cbs news has confirmed that the fbi limited its scope at the direction of republicans and the white house. >> why not have the fbi interview people in whom christine blasey ford confided in? >> our request was to the white house. the white house then made the request of the fbi to conduct a supplemental investigation into
7:07 am
current credible accusations of sexual misconduct. they did that. >> reporter: in response, a sense of just how vague the white house and republicans have been about their marching orders to the fbi. to give you a sense how intense the last-minute lobbying is up here, john, we know the white house, former president george w. bush and other heavy hitters have all been working the phones trying to ensure that kavanaugh gets confirmed. >> and they will until the last vote is taken. nancy, republican senator steve dane has his daughter's wedding on saturday. >> reporter: he is hoping he doesn't have to fly back to washington to vote. phe's hoping his party has the votes it needs without him. but he says he did call kavanaugh and reassure him that he will fly back to d.c. if needed. no word on whether he would fly back before he walks his daughter down the aisle or afterwards. >> all right, nancy, one more
7:08 am
piece of drama. thanks. >> republican senator ted cruz of texas, who sits on the senate judiciary committee, says he believes judge kavanaugh will be confirmed. senator cruz is in the middle of a tough re-election fight. we spoke to him at a campaign stop outside dallas about kavanaugh and president trump's reaction to ford's testimony. >> how did you get there? i don't remember. where is the place? i don't remember. >> the president mocked her, made fun of her. that received condemnation from people within your own party, other senators. do you condone the comments? >> the president speaks for himself. i can tell you from my perspective, it was incredibly important the judiciary committee provide a safe forum for her to give her testimony. now, that being said, the fact that dr. ford was dragged into the public by senate democrats i think was really, really
7:09 am
unethical. >> you are a legal scholar. so given your background, do you think that judge kavanaugh has the temperament to be a supreme court justice, from what you saw last week specifically? >> absolutely. that has been demonstrated because for over a decade he has been one of the most respected federal appellate judges in the country. >> did you think the way he treated c eed chloe ba is her? >> they had these allegations since july. they didn't ask him about it when they met him privately. they didn't ask him about it in the confidential hearing. they waited until the eve of the confirmation vote and leaked it to the press. simultaneously hurting judge kavanaugh and his family and dr. ford and her family. that's not the right way. our system of government should respect people and treat them with dignity, and that's not what we saw last week.
7:10 am
>> we also spoke with senator cruz about his surprisingly close senate race in texas. we'll hear from him and his challenger beto o'rourke in the next hour. >> dan senor knows kavanaugh and they both served in george w. bush's administration. dan, good morning. is kavanaugh going to be confirmed? >> i think he will be. i have never seen more -- since trump really has been elected, i've never seen more unity among republicans and conservatives then right now. so there's a segment of the republican electorate that's either anti-trump or ambivalent about trump and those folks, particularly in suburban districts, suburban congressional districts and certain states, there's always been this sense of lack of enthusiasm among those republicans. they couldn't distinguish between trump and the republican party. the whole thing was frustrating to them and they didn't want anything to do with it. for the first time in the last ten days, i think the kavanaugh
7:11 am
dynamic has transformed that. >> the news cycle barely lives now. does that sustain what you're talking about? >> we've got four weeks. if you look at -- around june, the ballot in june, democrats had a considerable advantage over republicans. republicans have tightened up with democrats. then over the summer, you had two big things happen. the child separation policy implemented and trump meeting with putin in helsinki. then you saw the generic ballot get wide open. now it's narrowed again. three polls, we've seen the enthusiasm gap shrink. it's four weeks, it's trump. he could inadvertently change the subject and it would set back republicans. if the subject is kavanaugh, i think it is unifying and energizing for republicans. there are eight states. eight states that will
7:12 am
determine. six of those states, there are more republican voters than democratic voters in those states. if people are amped up in the next four weeks, those states will probably go red. >> as somebody who knows brett kavanaugh, dan, were you surprised the way he was in the committee? because now temperament could become an issue. are you surprised the way he behaved -- >> it should be considered in context. did he get a little hot? yes. everyone who raises that charge, i say to them, if you had a senior u.s. senator, dianne feinstein, basically citing charges that were orchestrated by michael avenatti that you led a gang rape, charges that were unverified, uncorroborated, i say to everyone, how would you respo respond? he did get a little hot. other supreme court justices have been intempered at times. i think you have to look at the totality of his career. 12 years on the d.c. circuit.
7:13 am
even the ada, which the president called for an extended fbi investigation, the ada still stood by the recommendation. >> you have a supreme court justice saying because of his temperament -- >> right, and you had -- in 2016, you had ruth bader ginsburg openly campaigning against donald trump and saying she was going to move toll new zealand if he were elected. at times, you know, supreme court justices are human. and sometimes they say things that are inappropriate or political. i just think given all that was going on, the -- that brett kavanaugh did, i think he'll be confirmed. the vice president said in a speech yesterday that china wants a different american president. penn said a senior u.s. intelligence official told him, quote, what the russians are doing pales in comparison to
7:14 am
what china is doing. china denies it interferes in any country's domestic affairs. the u.s. unemployment rate is now at its lowest rate in 49 years. it reached 3.7% in september according to the labor department monthly job report that came out this morning. the report also shows u.s. employers added only 134,000 jobs last month. that's the smallest gain in a year. analysts say hurricane florence had an impact on job creation. the suspect accused of a deadly ambush on police in south carolina bragged about his shooting skills online. but we still don't know why three sheriff deputies and four police officers were shot on wednesday while they were attempting to serve a search warrant at the suspect's home. sergeant terrence caraway was killed. david pegues has more on this story. >> reporter: you know something that's interesting, the alleged shooter still hasn't been charged with a crime.
7:15 am
he's in custody and officials assure us there's no threat to the public but he hasn't been pthe crime scene is still activ. the three deepties who were the first to be shot were all women. they're still in the hospital. last night, a vigil to honor the male officer who died responding to a call for backup. friends and colleagues say sergeant terrence carraway dedicated himself to the community. he was honored for more t years of service to the city's a police30 department. >> he was a giant of a man but he was the proverbial gentle giant. and i loved him. >> reporter: according to a senior law enforcement official, the shooter is frederick hopkins. he's a 74-year-old vietnam veteran and disbarred attorney who described himself on social media as a competitive marksman. shots were fired at 4:00 p.m.
7:16 am
sheriffs deputies were attempting to enter with a search warrant because a 27-year-old man inside is the subject of a investigation. the news that hopkins was per perched on the second story with a high-powered rifle that gave him a direct line of sight down the street as backup officers approached the home. some of the officers who were shot were 15 yards away. sergeant carraway, that's his vehicle, down the street, probably 15 or so yards from the suspect's house. sergeant carraway was shot right near his vehicle. the police chief estimates it took about 30 minutes to be able to get in to rescue the wounded officers using an armored truck. >> it's my understanding right now they didn't know the level of firepower they were going into. >> reporter: the crimes happened in florence county but the richland county sheriff about an hour down the road has been asked to investigate. that sheriff was asked yesterday whether or not the family where
7:17 am
the shooting took place was given a head's up that the deputies were coming. here's what the sheriff said. it's under investigation. he didn't want to talk about it. and not all of the facts are known yet. we're going to keep pushing for an answer to that question. >> you'll be right back telling us, thank you, david. two major sponsors for one of the world's highest paid athletes say they're watching a lawsuit in las vegas that accuses him of raping a woman. cameras caught soccer star christiano ronaldo leaving his italian club team's training center yesterday. ronaldo denies the allegation and his club is supporting him but he will sit out two games with his portugal team next week. nike said the allegations are disturbing and promised to closely monitor the situation. the video game giant ea sports, which has ronaldo on the cover of its fifa franchise, said it will do the same. the company says, quote, we expect cover athletes to conduct themselvesings in a manner that is consistent with ea's values. this year's nobel peace

7:55 am
with one republican voting no. that's lisa murkowski of alaska and one democrat voting yes, joe manchin of west virginia. >> the nominating process has been delayed for a week because of the fbi inquiry into allegations that kavanaugh sexually assaulted one woman in high school and exposed himself to another in college. the public service leader said the interview failed to pull up anyone to file charges. they have a list of other potential witnesses. >> the interesting thing is, those four senators we were watching have moved forward. the only republican who voted notice was murkowski. that suggests she might vote no in this final vote and we're sure not sure how senator flake or senator collins will vote to
7:56 am
see if he ultimately will advance. >> there will still be discussion and conversation before that early vote tomorrow, and those three other senators other than murkowski, could always vote no on the final vote of kavanaugh. this is just the vote to keep the process going. so we have a no vote on murkowski, but we don't know about the others. >> it reminds us of that picture last week of dianne feinstein and lisa murkowski where she had her hand up against the wall because she ended up voting no. and i'm curious about susan collins and jeff flake because they were clearly on the fence. i wonder if something tipped them over. >> susan collins said after reading the fbi inquiry, there was no excuse for the incident that dr. ford described. >> they said there was no questioning and this was an insufficient report of the republicans for the most away from it.sfing

also have to take into account whether brett kavanaugh's op-ed in the "wall street journal" made any sort of impact or difference where he didn't say i'm sorry, but he said, listen, i got a little bit too emotional and that's not in my character. >> and in that final, final vote, it's still possible for the senator to say, yes, i want the conversation to continue, i didn't want to stop the senate from going forward, but in the end here's my final evaluation. >> i'm curious about joe manchin. he was literally hunted by reporters yesterday, and every time they caught up to him he said, i don't know, i don't know, i'm still thinking, i have to go back and read it again. what do you think was the final -- >> he is a democrat in the state of west virginia, a state that voted for trump by more than 20 points. he's up for reelection, he's former governor of that state, he knows the politics of the state. he is one who says i have to represent the people who voted me into office. i think he voted in terms of the
7:58 am
way people want him to. >> for his constituents. >> and if you ultimately vote no, you have to make it look like it was close. you can't even be saying i don't want to talk about it, which is what this vote was signalling for those three. if you're on the fence, you still want to have the conversation. >> it's important to take a step back and see what transpired this week. jeff flake said let's put the brakes on this, we need an fbi investigation. many people were startled to hear that from him, many republicans. that having been said, they're saying he may very well have saved the party because they now at least have cover when it comes to saying, we had an fbi investigation. >> that political cover. one still outstanding thing this final vote, and also senator susan collins, the key republican vote, will announce at 3:00 today how she plans to vote on the final vote, which will come, as john mentioned, tomorrow. coverage will continue today on your local news and this cbs station. we also have more on our

8:02 am
>> some pictures aren't worth it. i'm bianna golodryga with gayle ave brearah o'donnell and john dickerson. we have breaking news from capitol hill to bring you. the senate voted 51-49 to advance brett kavanaugh's supreme court nomination to a toal vote tomorrow. oments ago, the white house said it's confident kavanaugh will get the votes. s.rlier the nominee lobbied one last time for his confirmation with an op-ed article in the "wall street journal." he answered critics of his forceful tone writing this "i moreery emotional last thursday, more so than i've ever eeen, i hope everyone can andrstand i was there as a son, a husband and a dad." >> republicans hold a 51-49 senate majority so they can only afford to lose one republican vote to confirm kavanaugh tomorrow. if all democrats vote no. nancy corps december is on capitol hill and we've been following those four undecided senators, flake, collins,
8:03 am
murkowski and manchin. interesting how they voted. >> three out of the four of them, norah, voted to advance this nomination. the only one who voted no was lisa murkowski of alaska who spent the day yesterday, interestingly, meeting with sexual assault survivors from alaska, more than 100 who traveled to washington to urge her to vote no. the other three senators vote ye yes. it's an indication they want this process to go forward. everyone assumes murkowski's no vote today means she will be a no tomorrow which means that republicans can only afford to lose one more vote if they want to keep this confirmation alive. that's why these three remaining senators manchin, collins and flake are being watched so
8:04 am
closely.ed before, though, so never say never. what impact did the kavanaugh op-ed have on undecided senators. >> well, those senators never said his temperament was the biggest concern looming for them. they talked about the fbi investigation and the sexual assault allegations. but we haven't heard them say they were concerned about his judicial temperament but clearly he saw there was some damage control that needed to be done from his testimony last week. you even heard former justice john paul stevens say he supported kavanaugh until he heard the way kavanaugh spoke in the hearing then he changed his needed
8:05 am
to do this not just to shore up republican support but that he would be a different kind of justice than the perso last wee >> are these senators alone or getting whipped by the pressure of their parties? >> joe manchin is the only democrat who might vote yet. he is not getting a lot of pressure from democratic leaders. they learned a long time ago that when it comes to joe manchin of west virginia that can backfire. they are letting him make up his mind. he went and looked at the fbi documents again today. lisa murkowski after she voted no several republican leaders came up and shook her hand so that shows the way they're treating their republicans who are still on the fence. >> nancy, thank you. earlier this morning we spoke with senator dick durbin of illinois, he is the number-two senate democrat and a member of the judiciary committee. we asked him about the fbi report and how his party want od inquiry to be handled.
8:06 am
>> let me tell you, what a disappointment. i sat in that room yesterday and went through this scant survey they made of 10 witnesses, maybe nine at most. the fbi was clearly under orders to limit this investigation and as a result there were many witnesses, eight of them suggested by dr. ford, 20 by ms. ramirez who were never even contacted by the fbi. it was very disappointing. >> is there anything that democrats could have done this differently to make this a less painful process? >> i think we went out of her way to bend to her wishes. when she first came forward she branded her letter confidential and made it clear she didn't want her identity disclosed. senator feinstein respected that request, didn't want to victimize her another time so time passed and that's been used against senator feinstein
8:07 am
unfairly. >> >> but there is no one that corroborates dr. ford's account and there's some testimony by lee la lay la leland keyser that she felt pressured to say what she said. >> well, there could have been at least eight people that were suggested that could have been interviewed. i think mark judge should have been brought in and asked questions. there were elements of his statement that i can't disclose but they certainly raise questions that should have been pursued? >> what is your feeling about his op-ed? he admit he is got too emotional but he says he can return to being in his words even-keeled, open minded and independent. were you moved by what he had to say. >> no, i'm not. i understand his emotion and anger. this has to be a terrible ordeal
8:08 am
for him and his family and i understand that part. but the fire in his eyes when he turned into this partisan scree is something i'mcannot imagine t justice who would be so partisan, make such wild claims and then ask to be put on a bench and trusted. i agree with justice john paul stevens. now look at clarence thomas, he spent 10 years in sullen silence. if we go through and put brett kavanaugh on the court, i don't know what he'll do at that point but i don't trust his temperament at this point, his demeano demeanor. >> senator, thanks for being with us. >> you bet.

[ laughter ] >> code switching. talk about that. >> and she has a white boyfriend. so many interesting details. >> she's a nuanced black person living the contemporary black experience, it's something we have to do is code switch depending on the environment we here in because we understand that blackness is not necessarily accepted into all the spaces that we enter into and sometimes'secessary to be very intentional with how we present ourselves in order to achieve some sort of success.
8:46 am
because we understand that sometimes our blackness can be misconstrued as detrimental. >> the movie opens limited this week because you got stiff competition but you got a bigger release coming because word of mouth will sell this movie. >> we thank you both for being here. >> thank you. >> thank you for having us. >> congratulations. >> "the hate u give" opens today. former cisco systems chairman john chambers up next. all that mattered this week. john chamers up next. all that matters this week.
