7:13 am
potential trump tower moscow deal back in 2016. his answers didn't always match up with what the president's former lawyer, michael cohen, and others told congress. and that's why some republicans, like lindsey graham, are recommending that trump jr. show up in mid-june and simply take the fifth and exercise his rights to avoid self-incrimination. now cbs news has also confirmed that the house intelligence committee is probing whether lawyers for the president and his family may have obstructed that committee's russia investigation by trying to shape the testimony of some of the witnesses, including the president's former lawyer, michael cohen. norah? >> nancy, will we see any or hear any of trump jr.'s testimony? >> we will not unless the committee decides to make a transcript of it available after the fact. >> nancy, thank you. investigators in texas are urging the person who shot video of a deadly police shooting to

7:16 am
so i'm cautious on commenting on that. >> does her mental capacity play a role in this. >> those are things we'll have to look into. again, it does not negate and just an interesting note here, the person who shot this video still has not come forward. neighbors tell me it's probably because they are worried about their own interaction with police. >> mireya, thank you. a lot of questions still remain there. the country's top aviation officials facing tough questions from congress now about the certification process for boeing 737 max planes. this is after two deadly crashes involving the jet. 189 people died on a lion air flight last october. 157 were killed on an ethiopian

7:33 am
after the speech, we pulled him aside. >> how in the world can bejustify mandating a medical intervention when we have no idea what the downside is. how can you've doan that as a doctor, as a physician. >> you have absolutely no idea what the downside is with studies that have been done where 25 show no link between mmr and autism. >> my daughter has autism. >> reporter: in >> reporter: in an op-ed last week two of kennedys siblings and a niece slammed him. they accused him of putting children at risk and his work is causes consequences. the cdc says there are more than 800 cases of measles in the united states. the measles vaccine was introduced in 1963, and by 2000 the virus was considered eliminated here. >> how many people in this room do not believe that the information coming from the centers for disease control is correct about vaccines? >> all of us. >> we were there as some of the protesters met a legislator.

all of that. >> he clearly didn't want to answer the story. we were marveling at your story. what's the big takeaway? >> it's very complicated. one thing is i think we have to find -- >> the science is not complicated. >> the science is not. there is common ground. the common ground is we all love our kids. we would do anything for our kids. i spoke with the protesters yesterday. they love their kids. there is also fear, belief and misinformation. that's a tough concoction. we know it doesn't work to yell at them, to be condescending. you have to address it with empathy, softness, dialogue, conversation, and at the end of the day realize you won't win over everybody. but i think that's the best path. >> what is the response when people don't believe the science and the facts. that's what is so troubling here. >> you know what we found in the cbs sunday morning piece, there's a place in northwest oregon called boost. there's dr. joel. he spends two to three hours

7:45 am
nationwide. cbs news confirmed at least six deaths since 2012. experts believe that cable and chain connections many parks use are flawed. what do you want consumers to know based on your research? >> everybody in that system is influencing everyone else's jump. >> in the upcoming months, the doctor is hoping to publish the data he collected in the sports medicine journal. we asked rob arnold if launch could survive if they took those forred arbitrations out of their contracts which cuts down on the legal action people can take against the parks. arnold was confident they could. he also told us he supports federal regulation and would be willing to work with lawmakers. >> the owner of launch made good points saying not all trampoline parks are created equal. when you listen to the doctor, it's scary. does the doctor say none of us should use them? >> he basically said this energy transfer makes it so unpredictable.

♪ good morning to you, our viewers in the west. it is wednesday, may 15th, 2019. welcome back to "cbs this morning." steve bullock says what he thinks sets them apart from his 22 rivals for the democratic presidential nomination. he's gettinging in. plus, the track star who ran a race eight months pregnant will be here, claiming that sponsors and organizers discriminated against athletes who just want to be mothers. first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> alabama is ready to outlaw virtually all abortions in an effort to reverse protections for abortion rights nationwide.
8:01 am
>> this is a huge win for anti-abortion activists. the bill will now go to republican governor kay ivey's desk. >> iran accused president trump of playing a very dangerous game, risking devastating war. >> they're not required to have data reporters. it is up to the survivors to help piece together what unfolded. >> there is a compromise, trump jr. will show up, but only be questioned for between two to four hours behind closed doors by the senate intelligence committee. >> neighbors have set up a memorial for pamela turner. the police officer involved did know turner and knew she had outstanding warrants. that's why he tried to arrest her on monday night. >> arizona's governor recently signed a new law that makes it legal for residents to possess nunchakus. yes, that's what everybody wanted. and nobody was more excited about this than arizona's attorney general. keep in mind, this is the actual
8:02 am
attorney general and this is the actual video that he posted. nunchakus in the morning. >> he's got some moves. >> should see him with a throwing star. >> okay, mr. attorney general. >> i'm norah o'donnell with nunchaku using john dickerson and gayle king. >> i thought you forgot our names, with -- what's your name again? >> gayle. now to this story, the aclu is promising to go to court to challenge the strictest abortion law in the country. if alabama's governor signs it, state legislators overwhelmingly passed a bill last night banning abortion at every stage of pregnan pregnancy. the bill reclassifies abortion as a class felony. that means any doctor who performs one in alabama could get up to 99 years in prison.
8:03 am
>> there is no exception for cases of rape or incest. but there is an exception if a mother's life is at risk. the bill now goes to republican governor kay ivey, supporters say they want to provoke a court fight, hoping it will lead to the supreme court and then have the court reverse its famous roe v. wade ruling that protects abortion rights nationwide. >> the newest democrat running for president says he has a proven record of beating republicans and working with them. his name is steve bullock, montana's governor and he's the 23rd candidate to enter the race for the democratic nomination. he launched his campaign yesterday in a high school science classroom where he was once a student. bullock sat down with ed o'keefe for his first tv interview as a candidate. he's in helena, montana, with his conversation with the governor. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. governor bullock is jumping in late because he said he had to finish his day job. the state legislature dropped a
8:04 am
bunch of bills on his desk last week that he had to either veto or sign. >> i'm the only one that actually won in trump's state. i was on the ballot when trump got elected. he took montana by 20. i won by 4. >> reporter: steve bullock says his ability to reach across the aisle sets him apart from his democratic opponents. >> i've also been able to really bridge divides here. my legislature has always been at least 6% republican. >> reporter: in a field of 23 contenders, it will be an uphill battle for bullock to breakthrough. to qualify for first democratic presidential debate, he'll have to register at least 1% support in three separate polls. or find 65,000 unique campaign donors across at least 20 states. bullock says he wants to defeat president trump to make sure every american has a fair shot at being successful. do you think president trump is a good role model?
8:05 am
>> no. i don't. >> reporter: why not? >> the way that he conducts in the office and divides people, how he belittles people, that's not the example that you want out of a president. when we're expecting more of our preschoolers, at times, that's not the role model that i think most families want for their kids. >> reporter: a majority of democrats support impeaching the president. a majority of americans don't. do you support him -- do you support him impeaching president trump? >> i support congress doing full investigations as they should. that's their job. people are more worried about am i going to be able to afford college, is my kid going to get sick. >> reporter: he's the former montana attorney general and said tackling campaign finance reform is one of his issues. and he wants universal background checks for gun prchz

a purchases and address climate change. tariffs hit your state pretty hard, the wheat farmers and there have been millions given to them in relief. is that the way to combat? >> a payment from the department of agriculture isn't going to make up for the market's loss. this will be long-term injury along the way for our producers, not just here, but all across this country. >> reporter: who is our greatest global foe? >> i think our greatest global foe potentially is ourselves if we continue to have a level of divisiveness we have. >> reporter: really? >> yeah. the rest of the world sees that congress and the president can agree, or the divisiveness we have seen on every single potential in the military action or other. >> reporter: so potentially we're our own worst enemy. >> we can be.
8:07 am
>> reporter: also asked governor bullock whether he would consider picking one of the six women running for president to be his running mate if he's the nominee. he said while there are incredibly talented women running for president and in this democratic party, ultimately the decision would be based on several things including who is the best qualified person. >> really interesting. i don't think i've ever heard a candidate running for president describe america as america's greatest global foe. the parents of a drunk driver who crashed his car and died last summer are suing tiger woods and his girlfriend over his son's death. nick immesberger was a bartender at woods flagship restaurant in jupiter, florida. his parents say he died after being served excessive amounts of alcohol by the staff. woods' girlfriend was the general manager of the establishment. jim axelrod is here with tiger woods' new legal bat. he he's addressed this now. >> reporter: in florida, restaurants and bars are responsible if they knowingly

serve a customer with an addiction. and his family claims the defendants knew their son had a drinking problem. his parents say they're filing this lawsuit now because the restaurant destroyed evidence and even though woods and his girlfriend weren't necessarily there, the immesbergers say they are responsible. >> he was a wonderful son. >> reporter: nick's mother fought back tears as she talked about the night her son died five months ago. >> he had plans. he wanted to be a firefighter. >> reporter: in a new lawsuit, the family blames tiger woods, his girlfriend, and his restaurant for immesberger's car crash december 10th. it alleges the defendants served immesberger alcohol to the point of severe intoxication after his shift at the bartender ended. when he crashed his car that night, he had a blood alcohol content over three times the legal limit. the parents' attorney say they sued because the bar allegedly deleted video showing immesberger drinking before the
8:09 am
crash. >> they knew about the crash that night. and shortly there after that video evidence was then destroyed. >> reporter: the lawsuit also states woods and other defendants had direct knowledge that immesberger had a habitual problem with alcohol. yet continued to serve him at the bar. adding that they not only ignored immesberger's disease, they fueled it. woods responded to the suit yesterday. >> we're all very sad that nick passed away. it was a terrible, terrible night, a terrible ending. we feel bad for him and his entire family. >> reporter: woods' life has recently rebounded after years of legal trouble. >> are you okay? >> reporter: including a dui arrest two years ago. last month, he won the masters, and last week was awarded the presidential medal of freedom. but immesberger's parents say now woods should be punished for their son's death. >> it is a huge part of our family and left behind four siblingi inin ins and just wasn

nike said we standardized our approach so no female athlete is penalized financially for pregnancy. alicia montano, good morning. >> good morning. you describe everything you've done. after watching it, gayle and i were watching again this morning. we said, you are my hero. >> thank you. >> you have a voice that needs to be heard. companies like nike have ads that say dream crazy. is that what they're doing in actuality in their policy for women athletes? >> absolutely not. we're at a time where we need advertising to marry reality especially if we're going to be marketing to the younger generation. >> what ooh's the greatest disconnect between advertising and reality? >> it's exactly what i talk about in the opinion. you know, the greatest disconnect is that they are not backing up what they're
8:35 am
preaching, you know. they're make this very grand gesture when they make these ads that are moving. >> just do it. >> just do it is their slogan, but all maltby behind closed doors, everything that is a dream for women in particular, it's something they're basically stuffing you down saying actually this is not for you. >> you can do anything but not in reality. >> you say stop treating pregnancy as an injury. explain what happened to you. >> yeah. you saw in the statement, they say they have changed their approach. they basically make their response so verbose that it evades the problem. what do you mean? your standard approach is standard for men. i want to see not just nike, the sports industry implement practices in place that specifically protect female athletes, and that includes clauses for maternity and pregnancy that explicitly say
8:36 am
you are protecting this class. >> do you think that nike believes you would no longer be an olympic athlete after you have children? >> i mean likely. >> what was the truth? >> yeah, yeah. we're looking in a space where we have men that still believe that women are less capable, you know, in not just the sportingtry but many industries. so ultimately when people think about, and especially men at nike, when they think about women being athletes and they think about the highest level of athleticism, i certainly think and believe that they do not see you as a serious athlete once you decide -- >> the norm times reports out after your first or second pregnancy you taped your muscles together and sex months after giving birth you won what race because we were like, wow, we all had tears in our eyes. >> yes. six months after giving birth i
8:37 am
won a usa national title. in ten months i won a national title. i flew to beijing, china, pump and shipped my milk back to the united states. >> from beijing, china. >> yeah, yeah. >> help educate us for those who don't know. you're running eight months' pregnant and the baby is cooking really well. the uneducated are saying it's hurting the baby, the baby is being jostled, it's not helping you. help us understand why it's okay. when we look at it, it's jarring. it's a jarring picture. >> i don't find it jarring at all sunny'll speak for us all. norah's a runner and an athlete. >> it shows the power and strength of pregnant women. but go ahead. >> i'm not saying it's not
8:38 am
awesome. i'm just saying it looks like it hurts, that's all. >> you know, what i want for people to recognize is when we're looking at a time when perhaps you may think that, you know, pregnant women, exercising, oh, my goodness. this is a time where men were primarily our doctors an they're telling us everything they're telling us now that we cannot do. exercising is healthy for mom and baby as long as you're having an uncomplicated pregnancy. >> it was performance-based. the health insurance was performance base and if you didn't place in the top, you would lose your health insurance? >> yes. they operate on a tier system. if you do not fall within that for a yearing you lose your health insurance that you have no problem competing at that level is the point i want to
8:39 am
make. >> i won that at six months and ten month ms. after having my daughter, and the following year just before i became pregnant with my son, i finished second place in a race between two medals in the 2016 game. >> do you have a sponsor now? >> i don't. >> would you like to. >> of course, yeah, absolutely. i would love to move into a space where i can help elevate voices where people are ultimately like myself. >> let issei they're having fresh rev lags this day or at this moment. with their eyes open, what would you like to hear them say? >> i would like for nike to actually and explicitly say they're moving in a way that's truly progressive, not in a way that's allowing them to hide from their discretions -- their indiscretions. you know, i want for them to be able to say not that we have standardized it since 2018.
8:40 am
standardized is not what we're looking for. it does not protect. >> let's be clear here. this is not a nike hit ad. this is an ad that is bringing to light our issues that we're facing in the sports industry that is ultimately discriminating against female athletes across the board. nike is the industry leader, and they are t ones where other companies looking to compete against nike are placing their standards off of our industry leaders. >> i'm so proud of you. i'm so proud of you. >> thank you. >> there was a matrix award we were at. someone said when you food and your voice, you food and your success. and i think you found your voice on this issue and we'll change the way we think about pregnant athletes, female athletes, the men in charge of negotiating these contracts for female athletes. >> primarily the men. >> it doesn't have to be the men. that's another thing i'd like to see nike do.
8:41 am
hire some women that will help us with the contracts. >> people need to see your video. i learned some things, listening to what you had to say. >> thank you, gayle. >> there are two things that shock me. this completely shocked me. thank you, alice ya montano. we'll focus any statements on our website. an arizona teacher struggling to pay for school supplies with her own money found help from a stranger more than 2,000 miles away.

>> it caught the eye of ben adam who works in real estate. he sent police millich a message. has anybody offered to buy your class supplies. >> i thought that's an odd reply. he reached out again. i would offer to buy any supplies you need for the beginning of the school year. there's got to be a catch. >> reporter: there wasn't. >> i thought for very little i can do a lot of good and i can feel good about myself. >> reporter: the daily struggles of so many struggles struck a nerve with ben. >> that feeling is contagious and a few months later i asked again if she needed more supplies for the following semester and that's what started the ball rolling. >> amazon boxes started arriving in my classroom. it was crazy. >> who is this guy. >> he's the best. >> reporter: six weeks ago he went further, he built a
