history. you created a movement for change. two days after he was shot, police in southern california arrested a suspect in the murder of rapper nipsey hussle. >> all of that and -- >> bryce harper is back in washington showered with boos but harper had the last laugh. >> that was crushed in an epic backflip. and all that matters -- >> president trump was on tv today and he had a trouble of the word origin. >> take a look at the oranges -- origins of the investigation. the beginnings of the investigation. the mueller report i wish covered the origins of how it started. >> on "cbs this morning" -- >> yes, yes, sir! must take a look at the oranges of the investigation. i say it is high clementine we do so! the american people!
7:03 am
the american people will not stand-erine for it any longer. we tropicana handle the juice. toyota. let's go places. word play with stephen colbert. that was good. >> that was very funny. >> orange you glad he did it? >> glad he didn't say persimmon. >> very, very good. >> they're going to sign you up to go over with colbert. welcome to "cbs this morning." we've got new information this morning on that deadly plane crash in ethiopia that may undermine boeing's claims about a suspect's piece of software on its new 737 max jets. reports this morning say the ethiopian airlines pilots turned off the system designed to prevent the plane from stalling, but somehow it then started again.
7:04 am
the boeing 737 max is grounded over software problems linked to two crashes that killed more than 300 people. chris van cleve has been covering this boeing investigation. good morning. >> good morning. these are raising new questions, indicating the crew of ethiopian airlines reportedly did follow boeing emergency procedures and turned off that anti-stall system but they may have turned it back on in an effort to regain control of the plane. this reporting by reuters and "the wall street journal" broke overnight and indicates the system may have activated as many as four times, leaving the pilots unable to regain altitude and control. the plane, remember this, dived almost immediately after takeoff. these reports are bringing into question what boeing and faa have been saying about the ease of turning off these stall prevention features. after the crash of lion air 610, that crash back in october killing 189 people, an alert was sent to pilots explaining the
7:05 am
existing procedures to use to turn it off. yesterday the senate commerce committee announced it was investigation the faa's approval of the max, citing whistle-blower reports questioning the training of faa inspectors. the 737 max was grounded back in march until there is a software fix addressing the anti-stall system. on monday boeing announced that fix could take a few weeks longer than original believed. john? >> chris, thank you. extraordinary. federal investigators urgenly want to know why a chinese woman entered president trump's mar-a-lago resort carrying a device with computer malware. yujing zhang is accused of making false statements over the weekend and lied to security to gain access. the president was in florida at the time but not mar-a-lago. >> a secret service statement said it does not determine who is interviewed or welcomed at mar-a-lago. it is the responsibility, they say, of the host entity.
7:06 am
a washington journalist has question about security at the resort. a lot of people do. paula zahn has more on this story. paula, good morning. >> so many questions. prosecutors say when zhang arrived at mar-a-lago, she told the secret service she there to use the pool. the club believed she was latest to a member and let her in. but she didn't even have a swimsut. instead two chinese passports and thumb drive loaded with malware. president trump has visited the winter white house 23 times since taking office. this past weekend, he was already hitting the links at a nearby trump golf course by the time zhang snuck into the club. prosecutors allege zhang first approached a mar-a-lago checkpoint saturday shortly after noon. even though security could not find her on access lists, the club believed she was a relative of a member and allowed her access onto the property. when zhang arrived in the main reception area, a staffer asked several times why she was at
7:07 am
mar-a-lago. zhang finally responded she was there for a united nations chinese-american association event. the staffer knew there was no such event and alerted the secret service. but zhang passed at least five secret service agents and half a dozen signs before she was apprehended. >> this is a multiple perfect storm where she lied past checkpoints. >> our cbs national security analyst. >> they will look at when did she enter into the united states? >> agents found four cell phones, one laptop, external drive and thumb drive containing malware in her possession. this incident highlights the challenge of security at a private club. >> there are members, guests of members and large events. it just represents a vulnerability that the secret service is charged with mitigating. >> zhang allegedly told agents her chinese friend charles told her to travel from china to florida to speak with a member of the president's family about
7:08 am
foreign relations. the secret service has not been able to corroborate that story. they say the investigation is ongoing. today here at the white house, we've certainly seen additional secret service agents on duty. >> fascinating. that comes in the context, of course, but it is a national security apparatus. including my previous interview with the previous fbi director that the chinese are systematically stealing secrets from america, business secrets, corporate secrets. it is a huge concern. i think this story continues to grow as paula pointed out. >> i have a feeling they'll get smf some information from her. doesn't one always go to the pool without your bathing suit? that's a bit of a clue. president trump is standing by his pledge to grant republicans the push for new health care but said he will delay it until after the 2020 elections. the president is saying it is his decision but the truth is, it came after senator mitch mcconnell, who runs the senate,
7:09 am
the boss there, said the senate will not revisit health care before the elections. >> i made it clear to him we would not be doing it in the senate. he did say as he later tweeted, he accepted thcy cordes is on c hill with what's behind this republican split on health care. good morning. mitch has a way of setting things straight. >> he sure does and now the president is doing a little fancy footwork here. republicans essentially balked when he started publicly pushing them to try again on health care. republicans argued that any plan that they would come up with now is sure to die in the democratically controlled house. so the president backed down, for now. >> we're going to come up with a health care plan, we're not going to vote on it. >> president trump laid out part of his 2020 game plan last night, vowing to dominate democrats on the issue of health care. >> we have the crime, we have the police, we have the military. we have so much. they have health care right now.
7:10 am
we have to take them away from him. >> the president said voters will love his unwritten plan. >> we promise the people if you vote for us, all of us running, we will vote for this. it's going to happen. >> the president's promises this week surprised republicans and drawn mockery from democrats. >> they will come up with their plan in 2021. translation, they have no health care plan. >> republicans controlled both houses of congress the president's first two years in office but failed to repeal and replace obamacare. polls show health care was the most important issue to voters in the 2018 midterm elections when republicans lost control of the house. and it's been a hot topic for democratic presidential candidates. >> you would not believe that we cannot make health care a right for all people. >> health care should be a right and not a privilege for all americans. >> access to affordable health
7:11 am
care should be a right for all, and not a privilege for those who can afford it. >> a recent survey found last year alone americans borrowed an estimated $88 billion to pay for health care costs. one in four skipped treatment because it was too expensive. >> the deductibles are so high that nobody gets to use it unless you're in serious condition, so serious, that frankly, the last thing on your mind is health care. >> this all started a week ago when the department of justice at the urging of the white house took a new position, pushing for the full repeal of obamacare in the courts. the republican leader, mitch mcconnell, argued that isn't going to happen any time soon, so his party, he says, has a lot of time to come up with a replacement plan. john? >> nancy, thanks so much. chicago voters made history by electing the city's first
7:12 am
black female mayor. lori lightfoot won a land slide victory last night over toni preckwinkle, taking about 74% of the vote. lie foot carried all 50 chicago election districts in the runoff. we're outside city hall in chicago with details of the anti-establishment candidate's win. good morning. >> good morning, lightfoot's victory marks another milestone. she will be the first openly day mayor in the history of chicago. she and her opponent, toni preckwinkle, also a black woman, both consider themselves progressive but preckwinkle is a longtime public official and lightfoot never held a public office and that was part of her appeal. it was an historic moment in chicago publics, incoming mayor lori loyte foot made her triumphant entrance on stage alongside her wife and daughter. >> you did morning make history.
7:13 am
you created a movement for change. >> reporter: lightfoot was an unlikely outsider who promised to break what she called chicago's cycle of corruption. >> together we can and will finally put the interests of our people, all of our people, ahead of the interests of a powerful few. >> reporter: in her concession speech, toni preckwinkle vowed to work with the new mayor elect. >> the wox we've dork we've don values we fought for, that doesn't end tonight. >> reporter: lightfoot is inheriting a long list of challenges. chicago faces a $250 million budget deficit next year and billions of unfunded pensions with no clear plan of how to fix it. during her campaign, lightfoot made police reform a major focus following outrage over the deadly shooting of black teenager laquan mcdonald by a white police officer. >> we can and we will build trust between our people and our brave police officers so that
7:14 am
the communities and police trust each other, not fear each other. >> reporter: lightfoot will be the second female mayor in chicago history. she will also join seven other black women currently serving as mayors of major u.s. cities like atlanta and new orleans. lightfoot takes off may 20th. >> the papers say lightfoot in a land slide and proof the world is changing. it is changing there. a lot of organizations that say now young queer people, young black women can see they can hold major political office. you don't have to have spent your life in politics. >> and no experience. >> she was a former prosecutor but wasn't like someone who had spent her whole life in politics. >> never held an office. interesting races. the man accused of killing rapper nipsey hussle is in kuftd after a two-day manhunt. new video shows los angeles county sheriff's deputies arresting 29-year-old eric holder yesterday. he's expected to be charged with murder. girlfractressauren
7:15 am
london,d the first time since the shooting. she said, quote, i'm completely lost. i lost my best friend, my sanctuary, my protector. jam yim ueckous is outside the 77th division police station where holder spent the night. jamie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. police received a tip at 1:15 p.m. yesterday afternoon by someone saying they spotted eric holder. when officers arrived, they arrested him 20 minutes from where the shooting occurred. him in handcuffs almost 48 hours after police say he shot and killed rapper nipsey hussle in broad daylight. >> mr. holer walked up on more than subsequent occasion and walked up with a handgun. >> reporter: he fired several shots killing nipsey and killing two others. police say nipsey and holder appeared to know each other.
7:16 am
>> it seemed to be a personal dispute. i'll leave it at that. >> reporter: holder's arrest brings some relief to the community. nipsey made a name for himself in los angeles not only for his music but for his efforts to curb violence in the city even as a former gang member. >> you kill a role model, a leader, somebody who was trying to save your life. >> nipsey hussle was a shining example of the best of what we can be and the best of what it meanwhiles to seek and carry out a redemptive charge. >> reporter: nipsey had been scheduled to meet with the police chief and the president of the city's when officers arrived, they after he was killed. in an email asking for the me etding he wrote he hoped he helped improve communication and relations and dialogue between the la p.d. and the inner city. >> nipsey hussle was an artist who touchedbail.
7:17 am
if he's convicted on that murder charge, he would face life in prison without bail. >> the absolute worst way to pay back nipsey lohss is with more violence. it's interesting someone in the community turned him in. republican lawmakers in virginia say democrats are blocking a public hearing into damaging allegations against the lieutenant governor. two women say he sexually assaulted him and they're asked him to testify in front of state legislators. he's categorically denied those allegations. jeff pegues is outside the c
7:18 am
capitol in richmond. it will be interesting to see if they take up this conversation. good morning to you. >> reporter: i'm sure they will. at least the republicans will. so far there's no agreement in place for this public hearing to happen even though the republicans if the state legislature have been pushingng for it for weeks. what they want is for the lieutenant governor and his accusers to testifify. this is a proroposal the republicans have been pushing, and it would work by the lieutenant governor and his accusers being invited to testify during a two-day heaearg in either june or august. they would present their evidence before a special bipartisan sub committee. they bleeb he s should resign burke they say the matter should be handled by law enforce millionaire. they call it, quote, politically motivated and an unprecedent spectacle. it is worth noting all the seats are up for grabs in the virginia
