7:08 am
weathercaster of our new york station is tracking the storm. >> you look at the radar picture. we've got snow up in the rockies. but st. louis, you should be on alert because the snow's pushing in your direction. i believe you're going to be the bull's-eye for this particular storm. how much are we talking? keep in mind st. louis, your biggest snowfall ever has been 12.8 inches. that blue color is a foot of snow. the possibility is there. it's a record setter for you. for everybody on the west coast, let's look there. for you it's all about the rain coming on shore. today into tomorrow morning, look at this, top to bottom in california. you're picking up rain. maybe a little wit bit of a bren sunday. monday, tuesday, you're right back into more rain. wednesday, thursday, friday. this is probably the heaviest band of all. it's pulling down a lot of rain for 10 days straight. look at some of the numbers. san francisco, every day for ten days, you're picking up rain. for l.a., you'll pick up about 9.2 inches. all of last year, you picked up less than five.
7:09 am
an average year gives you 14.9. about two-thirds worth of a year's rain in ten days, john. >> all right, lonnie in st. louis. they need to make sure they got salt for the walkway and snow shovels. the partial government shutdown is now three weeks old. tomorrow, it will become the longest in u.s. history. federal workers who are not being paid are starting to hold protests across the country. the shutdown began over president trump's demand for billions of dollars for a border wall. paula reid is at the white house where the president might return from a visit to the southern border. >> reporter: good morning, that trip to texas is part of the president's all-out offensive to build a border wall but he has made no progress with congressional leaders over the past few days. it appears his only viable option may be to side-step congress. yesterday, he appeared to be laying the ground work to do just that, saying he is willing if we don't h ationalemergency. edbarrr, we're all wasting a lot of time.
7:10 am
>> reporter: as hundreds of thousands of federal workers prepare to miss their first paycheck today, president trump is at war over his wall. >> everybody wants us to win this battle. it's common sense. death is pouring through. >> reporter: surrounded by helicopters and contra band seized by border agents, he portrayed his nation as under siege. >> they need a barrier, a wall. >> reporter: federal workers need to put food on the table. >> we need our paycheck. >> reporter: across the country, increasingly desperate federal workers stage protests against the shutdown. >> hey, hey, ho, ho, this shutdown has got to go. >> reporter: even the president's supporters see no end in sight for the standoff. >> i have never been more depressed about moving forward than right now. i just don't see a pathway forward. >> reporter: a key issue for republicans, the president's mixed messages on would pay who the wall. he told this to john dickerson
7:11 am
three months after taking office. >> 100%? >> 100%. it's going to be happening. they'll be very happy to pay. >> reporter: yesterday, the president took a different approach. >> obviously they're not going to write a check but they are paying for the wall indirectly many, many times over, by the really great trade deal we just made. >> reporter: democrats won't give him taxpayer money for the wall, the president says he will exercise his right to declare a national emergency. >> i would say it will be very surprising to me that i would not declare a national emergency. >> reporter: doing so could allow the president to use unspent pentagon funds to start building his wall. but in the immediate future, it would likely keep lawyers busier than construction workers. democrats have vowed to file legal challenges in the president tries to do this and even if he prevails at the supreme court, he would likely face another round of legal
7:12 am
challenges from property owners on the border. >> there's a "wall street journal" report out talking about the infighting from the white house and about whether or not he should declare an emergency. >> just to remind people, the president's policy, as it was written down on his website in detail, the first thing, mexico will pay a down payment on the wall. so when he says he wasn't asking mexico to pay by the details of his campaign, he was asking mexico to write a check. >> yes, you remember that exchange -- >> i do. that was when he was president and they were chanting "build the wall" and he said absolutely mexico's going to pay for it and they're going to be happy to pay for it. >> such confidence too. >> we know we're about to set a government shutdown record that nobody should be proud of. >> the shutdown is also affecting airport screeners who have to keep working without pay. kris van cleave is at washington's reagan airport tracking the potential impact on air safety. kris, everyone is paying attention to this. >> reporter: good morning. tsa leadership remains concerned about a tipping point moment.
7:13 am
particularly now that screeners have received a paycheck for tipping point would be the moment when folks go look other places for work which would make it a lot harder to staff checkpoints like the one behind me. it's important to note the vast majority of tsa screeners have been on the job without pay. there has been a moderate increase in the number of workers calling in sick compared to last year. if staffing become as issue, the tsa will reduce the number of screening lanes which will result in longer lines and the potential of missed flights. miami international is prepared to close terminal g in the afternoon starting this weekend to free up tsa officers to work usier checkpoints in part due to sick calls. faa air traffic controllers rallied on capitol hill yesterday calling for an end to the shutdown. they're also on the job working without pay. one controller posted on twitter a picture of her pay stub showing zero dollars. the national transportation safety board can't investigate fatal accidents because its investigators have been furloughed. they can only be brought back if
7:14 am
there is a clear sign of an imminent life-threatening safety risk. bianna. >> kris, aside from the headaches of long lines, if tsa screeners don't show up for work, is it still safe to fly? >> well, tsa screeners don't show up to work, people won't be able to go through the checkpoints and they won't be able to fly. but the screeners have been on the job. it is safe to fly. air traffic controllers are on the job. screeners are on the job. >> all right. >> good to hear. >> thank you, kris. >> when i was at the airport last week, passengers were thanking the tsa screeners for being there on the job. you might want to think about that when you're flying. these people are there without pay. >> absolutely, that's absolutely right. now the fbi agents are urging congress to immediately fund their agency with the government shutdown now affecting critical security operations. nearly 13,000 special agents won't receive their paychecks today. in a petition, top fbi representatives warn the resulting financial insecurity could disqualify some agents
7:15 am
from serving. and lead others to find work elsewhere. the president of the fbi agents association spoke with our jeff pegues yesterday. >> people are upset, worried about when is the next paycheck going to come in. >> the federal law enforcement source tells cbs news the funding freeze could jeopardize undercover investigations. the source says morale, understandably, is horrible. meantime, more high-profile musicians are distancing themselves from r&b legend r. kelly. yesterday, the band phoenix said on twitter, quote, we are deeply horrified by the stories of abuse surrounding r. kelly. the band performed with him at coach chela and worked on a song with him in 2013. kelly denies any wrongdoing. jericka duncan spoke with his attorney. >> reporter: the three-time grammy winner faces a growing
7:16 am
public backlash and mounting legal pressure following the airing of the docu-series "surviving r. kelly." his lawyer told us the sex abuse allegations in the documentary were fabricated by people he described as disgruntled. >> it's a hit piece. >> reporter: criminal defense attorney steve greenberg says his client r. kelly has not seen the six-part documentary that's created a firestorm. >> he's disappointed that these women are doing this, that these families are doing it. they're ruining a talented musician's career. >> reporter: just so i'm clear, did you watch all six hours of this? >> i didn't watch one minute of it. i don't watch that kind of trash. >> reporter: so you didn't see any of this but you're convinced all of these women are out here trying to get sa minu15 minutes fame? >> i've seen snippettes of alla the attention of prosecutors in
7:17 am
illinois and georgia. multiple women said they were sexually, physically and emotionally aabused. >> brings back memories, very painful. >> there's absolutely no evidence what they're saying is true. >> reporter: on thursday, the band phoenix said they regret not knowing more about the allegations against kelly when they collaborated with him in 2013. and i-tunes removed "do what you want" lady gaga's duet with kelly the day after she declared she will never work with kelly again. >> look at lady gaga. now she wants an academy award so now he's a terrible person. >> reporter: do you think he plans to address the public soon? >> i'm sure he will. if nothing else, i'm sure he'll write a song and it will be a big hit. >> reporter: greenberg says no victims or police have contacted him about r. kelly. the executive producer of the series told us they never heard back from kelly's lawyers but that the women's stories speak

struck by the fact that this for you is -- is the -- is beyond just coming here to work. it's personal. it's why you're doing the three weeks, but for the people who don't know, why did you want to bring "hamilton" to puerto rico? this wasn't about making money. this was personal. >> no one is making any money. the goal was -- well, here's the thing i brought my first musical in the heights here many years ago, and it was a labor of love. that was the first equity she had ever come to the island. we played a week where we're playing "hamilton" and it was the most emotionally satisfying, artistically satisfying week of my life. i didn't realize how important it was to me that this island that i love so much embrace my work, and it's hard to get broadway shows to -- to puerto rico, but i sort of realized as soon as we got a nice review in the "new york times," oh, there's going to be a tour of the show, and oh, i'm going to get to play this in puerto rico. >> and then came the hurricanes. >> and then came the hurricane
8:34 am
and then the conversation immediately became how do we help puerto rico and leave it a little better than we found it? and we chose -- you know, in the immediate aftermath of hurricane maria, as you well know, were you here. you're one of our heroes on the island for reporting on what was happening here, it was ery, you know, really first responders, urgency, and with that campaign, we want to help artists and artistic organizations that often get forgotten in the rebuilding effort. >> there was a moment last night where madison says "hamilton" brought us from bankruptcy to prosperity and i'm thinking, wow, the irony. here were on a bankrupt island. "hamilton" started the bank as we know it. >> yeah. >> what is it going to get to take puerto rico back to prosperity? >> it's going to take a lot. it's going to take congress really investing in the rebuilding effort on a scale commensurate with the other hurricane relief that has happened in the united states on the mainland. it is going to take debt
8:35 am
forgiveness on the island because -- >> so you're for that, forgive the debt? >> i'm for forgive the debt, yeah. i don't believe squeezing the future of this island and the students who are going to make it great again in the next generation is the answer, and, you know, i -- i think the puerto rican people are the most resilient in the world. >> amen to that. amen to that. >> what they have been through over the past year and a half is a test not that. >> i want to bring in the gayle in new york. gayle, you've seen "hamilton" and john and bianna you have as well. >> i've only steen twice. >> i've only seen it twice as well. >> yeah. >> and how do you count the singing by the kids in the kitchen to the cast album? i don't know how to account for that? >> but i am serious, lin, because i would imagine you'll have a lot of goose bump moments during this run, and i was -- i saw your twitter the other day where you talked about your young son seeing it for the first time during rehearsal. please tell us what that was like for you because it seemed like it got to you a little bit. >> yeah.
8:36 am
well, that was the most nervous i think i've ever been performing the show. he had seen act one of the show. he had never seen it with me in it. we had a long talk about act two and how everything is pretend, you know. everything daddy is doing on that stage is pretend. kissing that lady is pretend, pretending to get shot is pretend. i'm still alive, and he -- and it worked because at the end he high-fived donald weber who plays burke. that guy shot daddy on stage so he was real -- i'm so proud that he -- everyone -- everything else is gravy after that. >> it's been two years. are you feeling a little nervous though, ow are you feeling -- i know you got this, but are you feeling it's like so comfortable that it's like come home again in many ways? >> yeah. someone asked me is it like riding a bike, and i said, yeah, but it's like riding a bike in new york traffic. i know the route. i don't know if someone is going to open a cab door on me, but i do know -- i do know the way home. >> and we said if you goofed up
8:37 am
a line you would just create a new one so it all works. >> lin, a lot of people listen to "my shot" for inspiration before they do something difficult. do you ever do that? >> yeah. but you know what's interesting about this show is, you know, you change the day and you change the moment and suddenly something else in it speaks to you. i got very emotional singing "hurricane" here last night. there's a song called "hurricane" in our show, and it's about how that -- the hurricane that destroyed st. was t was the catalyst. it's very hard to get through that song here. >> in the eye of the hurricane, yeah, and the musical is also about immigrants, lin and you're the son of an immigrant and immigrants are always reminded never to forget your roots you spent your summer growing up in puerto rico and going back.
8:38 am
do you plan on doing the same for your sons, taking them back there? >> absolutely i do. first of all, puerto rico is part of the united states. stle and immigrant mentality and i grew up largely in an immigrant neighborhood and do i believe that, you know, my parents have a house here on the island, and our goal is for our kids to have the childhood that my wife and i had. my wife would get sent to the dominican republic every summer and would i get sent to puerto rico so we'll do sort of splitsys and that's the goal to get their spanish and the culture >> today is alexander hamilton's 262nd birthday. i'm sure you knew it. >> was this is a koinkydink for you, or did you just plan it that way? >> things just work out weirdly in the world of amountion. our first performance was also on january 11th at lincoln
8:39 am
