speaking out in support of lucy flores, the former nevada assemblywoman who's also accused biden of inappropriate behavior. both women say that nothing biden did was sexual in nature, but they say the former vice president made them feel uncomfortable and violated their personal space. a spokesman for biden didn't return requests for comment on this new specific allegation, but over the weekend, biden said in a statement that over his lifetime of campaigning, not once, never, did i believe i acted inappropriately. we have arrived at an important time when women feel they can and should relate their experiences, and men should pay attention and i will. on monday, house speaker nancy pelosi told reporters that the allegations should, quote, not at all disqualify biden from the presidential race. and at a forum for other already declared presidential candidates here in washington on monday, former housing secretary julian castro and senator amy klobuchar told us it's up to biden to determine what to do next. both said they'd never seen
biden behave inappropriately at campaign events they attended with him. norah? >> all right, ed. thank you. it's interesting to hear the former vice president saying that these women's stories should be told, should be told in context. certainly the severity of which they allege these things. human contact happens on the political campaign trail and also in life. >> i think you have to look at the intention, too, behind it. i think that's why this is so hard for a lot of people. i've seen a lot of eye rolls about this -- about both of these incidents. i think you have to put it in, as you said, context and the intention behind it. >> there are very serious issues of sexual harassment, abuse, and assault. we've covered them on this show repeatedly. >> we'll continue to do so. >> absolutely. the parents of murdered new york jogger karina vetrano says justice has been served after a man was found guilty in her 2016 killing. >> we, the jury, find the defendant guilty.

confrontation and banks was simply walking away from an apartment he thought was his own when the shooting happened. >> my son is gone. you know, over an innocent mistake. >> reporter: lisajohnson, says son did nothing wrong. according to the police incident report, the suspect claims he believed someone was attempting to enter his home, so he grabbed his handgun and went on to his balcony. banks then started walking away and said he had the wrong apartment when bynes allegedly began swearing at him. bynes then claims the victim reached for something chrome in color, which he believed to be a gun, before firing. banks died on the scene with gunshot wounds to his neck and waist. >> how could you have that much evil in your heart and that much vengeance? >> reporter: banks hn on facetime his glfriend at the time. >> i hear him yell, and i heard all the fear in his voice. he was just -- i'm sorry, i'm at
the wrong door. >> reporter: georgia is a stand your ground state, which means the law allows you to not retreat and use deadly force if you reasonably feel threatened. but police say banks did not have a weapon and do not believe he was arguing with the shooter. banks' mother called her son a bubbly kid who loved to laugh and have fun. >> i'm just hoping justice is served. my son died senseless. >> reporter: bynes' cousin says he was trying to protect his family because his truck was stolen last week. he's in jail and will be there until his court appearance, which is scheduled for sometime next week. if convicted on that murder charge, he faces life in prison or the death penalty. back to you. >> demarco morgan, thank you. investigators in north dakota are searching for a killer this morning after four bodies were found in what police call a multiple homicide. the victims, three men and a woman, were discovered at a business in mandan yesterday, just outside bismarck. their identity is unknown.

attorney. i think this is what it's about. >> well, foxx says she's welcomed on locking up viole offenders and would welcome an outside review. >> intense feelings on both sides. i didn't look at it as white men coming after a black woman. i looked at it they were very upset about the decision that was made. >> agreed. >> that's people on both sides. >> agreed. amazon is cutting prices at its whole foods grocery chain. ahead, hundreds of items affected and how many shoppers are likel good tuesday morning to you. another day of shower activity. high depth doppler and you can see the receipt start. grab your rain jacket and umbrella as you head out. daytime highs cooler compared to yesterday, upper 50s to low to mid 60s. and scattered showers today. a few showers for tomorrow. scattered activity for your thursday and a rainy day on

good morning to our viewers in the west. it's tuesday, april 2nd, 2019. welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead only on "cbs this morning," the second woman to accuse virginia's lieutenant governor of sexual assault tells us questions about her past are not relevant to her story of what happened with justin fairfax. we take you back 50 years to the first moon landing to see how it still affects the space program today. first, here is today's eye opener at 8:00. the suspect has been identified by police in the shooting death of rapper and neighborhood activist nipsey 40 up to pay respects at the shooting scene when panic
erupted. security clearance application process has not been handled in the best interest of national security. a border shutdown would have an immediate economic impact here, but the ripple effects could be felt across the country. darrell bynes claims he was acting in self-defense, now police say there was no confrontation and banks was simply walking away from an apartment he thought was his own. amy says she met biden at a democratic party fund-raiser. she describes what happened at the end of the evening. >> he put his hands around my head and pulled me in. the texas statehouse recently passed a bill to legalize lemonade stands run by children. i think this is a shame. i do. half the fun of buying lemonade from a kid's stand was the rush you got from breaking the law. i mean let's get this straight. the rest of the country legalizing marijuana, texas just now legalizing lemonade.
well, as a texas girl, i'm proud of texas for finally coming along. >> i think it's good. you seem like the type to have a lemonade stand. >> i did have a lemonade stand, many a times. >> did you follow all applicable health codes. >> of course i did. i wore gloves when cutting lemons. >> no, you didn't. >> i know. i'm norah o'donnell with gayle king and john dickerson. bianna is off. house oversight committee voted to issue subpoenas investigating whether white house security clearances were granted despite major concerns. democrats want to get a deposition from former white house personal security director carl line. he was the supervisor of tricia knew bold who told the committee she helped deny clearances to about 25 trump administration officials including two senior
white house aides, but the denials were overturned. she said the security ib use including foreign influence, conflicts of southwest and personal conduct. >> chairman elijah cummings september a letter to the white house asking for more information on several officials including the president's son-in-law, jared kushner, and daughter ivanka trump. republicans say democrats cherry picked experts from newbold's remarks. >> meredith watson telling the story after she revealed dr. vanessa tyson after she x sexlly assault watsimed he raped her in 2000 when they were both students at duke university. she and tyson say they have never met. justin fairfax denies their allegation, adamantly so. watson says the me too movement gave her hope her voice would finally be heard. she also believes her past is getting unfair attention. >> the thing you keep hearing
from most men, certainly after the me too movement, is that a woman can make a charge and a man has no defense, and when we get into your word against his, why are you more credible than he is? >> i don't have anything to gain by coming forward. the only thing coming forward has done has invited criticism and chaos and scrutiny of me and put me under a microscope. it's been difficult enough what i've gone through the last 20 years. i didn't need this. but i had to tell the truth. >> because there have been published reports about an ex-boyfriend who took out a peace order, a form of a restraining order in the state of maryland. he claims you damaged his car, you threatened to commit suicide, that you held him hostage. and when you talk about your past being scrutinized, that is certainly something that's been brought up, that you have financial problems.
you're involved in a messy relationship with the father of your daughter. how do you respond to those allegations? >> what does that have to do with what happened to me in 2000? i don't want to give breath to the smears that were put out, whether they're truth or lies. i don't want to give power to justin and what he's done and act like i have to defend myself. i don't have to defend myself because nothing in my life that happened after that night is relevant to what happened that night. >> you've written in t"the washington post", women of color who report rape know to expect a dismissive response characterized by an even greater disbelief and more abuse, if not complete and utter indifference. what did you mean by that? >> there's this expectation that we are supposed to protect our
black men at all costs, and there's been this idea that black women -- i guess maybe because this has happened to us throughout history, that it's just something we're supposed to grin and bear and you keep it going. >> do you think these stories are different when black women bring these charges against black men? >> absolutely, because you're seen as betraying your race. you're seen as betraying black men. but there's no recognition that a black man has betrayed you. >> what is it that you want as you sit here today and you're sharing your story with us? >> i want some action from the virginia legislature. there's no amount of money that can ever compensate for what he did to me or what i live with every day. >> are you seeking money? >> no. >> you're not seeking money? >> no, no. i just want -- i want to support dr. tyson. i want the people of virginia to know the truth and i would like the virginia legislature to do the right thing.
>> when you saw vanessa tyson's allegation, you thought what? >> i broke down into tears because i feel guilty. >> why do you feel guilty? >> it happened to her after it happened to me. and had i had the strength or the courage to say something in 2000, maybe it never would have happened to her. and i know the pain that she's had to live with since it happened. nobody should have to go through this. i feel awful. i feel awful. >> now, lieutenant governor fairfax categorically denies vanessa tyson and watkins' allegations. he says i am able to hear the
pain they have expressed, a pain i hope they are able to resolve and heal from. however, because i never assaulted either dr. tyson or ms. watson, i know my actions cannot be the source of that pain. both watson and tyson are calling for an investigation. democrats have been negotiating with republicans on the terms for a potential hearing, but so far a date has not been set. they go into session again tomorrow and both women are hoping something will come of that. both of them say they want the hearing, instead of the investigation, because in many cases they say the results of the investigation can be kept private. they would like it to be in an open forum with all of them, including justin fairfax. they would like him to testify as well. >> i don't think we've ever seen anything like that, if that were to occur. incredible. >> right now in virginia both sides are pointing fingers at the other as to why this hearing hasn't happened. maybe now there will be some conversation about it. we'll see. >> a lot of pain.

it is the stated policy of this administration and the united states of america to return america astronauts to the moon within the next five years. >> that was vice president, mike pence, last month, talking about the trump administration's goal for a return to the moon by 2024. this echoes a call made by president john f. kennedy in a
1951 speech to congress. >> i believe this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal before this decade is out of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth. let it be clear -- >> kennedy's challenge, i'm getting goose bumps, set off putting a man on the moon. eight years later, 500 million people watched with neal arm strong and the apollo crew. >> one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. >> with the 50th anniversary of the moon landing in july, douglas brinkley shares the back story in "american ing to y'all. >> those are goose lumps. >> yeah, yeah. that's why we study history.
it's an amazing story. it's different than the story today. does the administration have a shot the way john kennedy did? >> john kennedy with was a great salesperson for space. rice university, september 12, 1962, he gave that amazing speech. we choose to go to the moon, not because it's easy, but because it's hard. he tied it into the science education, math education, history of exploration, christopher clolumbus. pence is talking huntsville, which is good. it didn't have the tone. the trump administration will have to sell going back to the moon a little more vigorously than they have thus far. >> let me ask you this, kennedy had the cold war. how did that help, both in the specific space race, but more broadly and how does the lack of that affect politics today.
>> the cold war is everything about going to the moon. in 1967, they put the satellite up and alarm bells ran all over america, we are losing space rates, satellites, icbms and a missile gap. the cheerleader of a missile gap is john f. kennedy. he built the missile gap that eisenhower was asleep at the wheel at a campaign pledge. hen he runs in 1960, he's talking space alarm. he tells nixon, in one of the debates you said the kitchen debate america is number one in appliances. i'll take my tv and black and white, thank you. i want to be number one in rocket thrust. >> what did he see that others didn't back then? how big of a sell was it? it costs a lot of money. >> 180 billion in today's dollars. >> 180 billion in today's dollars, a ton. what he saw, really, henc he be.
then the soviets went to space, on kennedy's watch. then, kennedy, may 5, 1961, watched allen shepherd, the astronaut, mercury astronaut go up and down, tv ratings bonanza. kennedy noticed. television was his medium. every one of them, everybody would watch. kennedy starts identifying the astronauts as my space core, by elite kennedy astronauts. also, you know, fdr had the new deal, the dam and wpa bridges and the like. eisenhower built the interstate highway system, st. lawrence seaway. kennedy's infrastructure became high-tech, acknowledging corridors. my book talks about how the southern states started tracking
all this nasa money, hundreds of millions of dlaollars, billions pouring into san antonio or huntsville, alabama for rocketry, north carolina for star watching. >> places that were important that kennedy needed. >> nasa canceled because they didn't have two medium sized space suits for women. shouldn't they talk about the first woman on the moon? >> absolutely. back in the day, edward of cbs fame was promoting an african-american or latino american because most of the world isn't white. we are sending only white astronauts up. what a big thing if america could put a non-white astronaut up. they didn't listen. all the mercury, gem nini and apollo astronauts were men.
in mercury 13, they were trained in mexico. they passed every test with flying colors. great pilots. in the end, nasa said we are not going to put a woman into space. the soviets beat us. but we got sally in 1983. >> a new crop. >> now, women galore are entering. >> white men, as you know, are everywhere. it's good they are including other people. >> yes, they are including them. >> douglas brinkley, you have done it again. beautifully done.
