7:07 am
of northern syria. [ gunfire ] if anything, turkey's stepped up its military campaign in a land grab as syrian regime forces race to retake key kurdish cities. the u.s. military is now largely out of the picture, retreating u.s. troops seen on the move to avoid being caught between two advancing armies. a russian journalist posted video allegedly showing the abandoned u.s. base in manjib saying i'm now at the american base, let's see how they're living. america's quick exit changed the landscape dramatically and immediately. we not only had to avoid syrian regime forces but the turkish military, its extremist militias, and an emerging isis threat. caught up in the widening chaos, kurdish civilian, victims of indiscriminate shelling packed into overstretched hospitals. we've witnessed how underresourced these facilities are. one surgeon told us they're desperate for medicine and commitment and on the verge of collapse.
7:08 am
u.n. estimates of people displaced by the fighting keeps climbing. it's now 160,000. defending the offensive in the "wall street journal," turkish president erdogan said his country had reached its limit dealing with 3.6 million refugees from the syrian conflict. turkey also views syrian kurdish fighters as terrorists that must be eradicated. forces who were once america's most loyal ally in the fight against isis. we've been in touch with kurdish commanders this morning who tell us that the u.s. military in kabani have asked for their protection to keep syrian regime forces out of the area so they're able to withdraw safely. >> thank you, charlie d'agata. the pictures difficult to watch. thank you. we're learning former national security adviser john bolton apparently tried to raise the alarm over rudy giuliani's involvement in ukraine. "the new york times" is reporting that bolton wanted white house lawyers to be
7:09 am
alerted back in july when he learned about efforts to pressure the country. bolton's former aide, fiona hill, testified yesterday before house impeachment invstigators. bolton reportedly called rudolph giuliani a hands grenade. very graphic description. what else do we know? >> reporter: fiona hill testified for more than nine hours and said that john bolton told her to go to the chief lawyer at the national security council and report that there was an outside ukraine policy, very unusual, that involved the acting white house chief of staff, mick mulvaney. a red flag from john bolton who was the president's own national security adviser.
7:10 am
according to "the new york times," fiona hill told lawmakers that bolton was concerned about the goals rudy giuliani, gordon sondland, and acting white house chief of staff mick mulvaney were pursuing in ukraine. bolton advised her to tell white house lawyers, "i'm not part of whatever drug deal sondland and mulvaney are cooking up." his metaphor may have referred to this -- in september, cbs news reported that shortly before mr. trump's call with ukraine's president -- >> that call was perfect. it couldn't have been nicer. >> reporter: -- mr. trump instructed mulvaney to hold off on releasing millions in military aid for ukraine as giuliani, sondland, and president trump all pressured ukrainian leaders to investigate a campaign rival, joe biden. today lawmakers will interview

7:13 am
>> as a black female former police officer, i'm afraid when i get stopped. >> reporter: former fort worth police officer lad arounda young says she doesn't trust the officers and feels atatiana's death is a breach of protocol. >> officers are shooting before assessing situations. if that officer had simply knocked on the door, that young lady would be alive today. >> reporter: officer aaron dean resigned yesterday. body cam footage shows the moment he shot and killed jefferson in her home on saturday. >> put your hands up! >> reporter: the video shows dean, now charged with murder, never identified himself as a police officer. >> the front doors have been open since 10:00 -- >> reporter: he was responding to a 2:00 a.m. wellness call from jefferson's neighbor, but interim police chief ed krause said it may not be have been
7:14 am
clear there was no emergency. >> if they thought there was something more criminal, a more tactical response would be warranted. >> jefferson's siblings say it's a sign the department has to change what their attorney called a brutal culture of policing. >> no guns should have been out. there was no threat. >> reporter: when you heard the gunshot came through a window, what was your response? >> that's -- that's drive-by material. >> reporter: police chief kraus agrees, there's no excuse for dean's actions. what can you tell members of the community who have told us incidents like this are why they do not trust fort worth police? >> i tell them i get it. we're trying to ensure that they act and react with a serving heart instead of a warrior's heart. >> reporter: dean was charged with murder, but the investigation will not stop there. in fact, fort worth city officials have handed over a preliminary case to the fbi to look into possible civil rights violations. we are expecting an update on the criminal case later on this morning. anthony? sh an uting sry.
7:15 am
thank you. a powerful earthquake rocked parts of northern california overnight. the 4.5-magnitude quake was centered in the bay area. shaking was felt across san francisco, oakland, and san jose. there were no immediate reports of major damage or injuries. california's largest utility company, pg&e, says no equipment appears to be damaged, and there are no plans to shut off power. puerto rico's governor will hold an urgent security meeting later today after a mass shooting reportedly left at least eight people dead.

7:16 am
the building was under construction, partially collapsed on saturday. two people died in the accident, and at least 30 more were hurt. yesterday, engineers determined both of the cranes at the building are at risk of falling. the safety perimeter has now been expanded as a result. investigators are trying to determine what caused the sudden collapse. the city's mayor told cbs news the building was last inspected 20 days ago. oscar-winning actor cuba gooding jr. is expected to appear in court today on two separate charges of sexual misconduct. this comes amid reports more women are coming forward with accusations. gooding was set to go on trial last week for allegedly groping a woman at a new york city club. jury selection was postponed after prosecutors added a new charge. don dahler is at the manhattan criminal courthouse. what can gooding expect today?
7:17 am
>> reporter: good morning. like the rest of us gooding's going to find out what the latest accuser is alleging. now in is on top of new reports that say three other women are also sayinging that the star groped them, as well. >> good morning, cuba, how you doing today? >> reporter: the new charge against actor cuba gooding jr. will be unsealed to, nearly a week after he was test to stand trial for allegedly groping a 29-year-old woman in june. instead, at that pedaddi itment e actor, delaying his trial. cbs news legal analyst rikki klieman. >> cuba gooding jr. is going to court and will face a seconds charge that happened allegedly in 2018. and it is of a sexual nature. >> reporter: the original exchange was allegedly caught on video. mz posted images from a surveillance camera that appears to show the actor touching his accuser.
7:18 am
although it's unclear from the video whether any groping occurred. >> reporter: in a statement to cbs news, gooding's lawyer says "the conduct alleged in this new charge was also caught on video," and that it, quote, will not reveal any criminal conduct on cuba's part, even less so than the first accusation. now the "new york post" is reporting there are three new accusations involving simila alleged behavior of inappropriate grabbing at manhattan clubs. those accusations are also disputed by gooding's lawyer who told cbs the third, fourth, and fifth cases never saw daylight because i think the d.a. felt that anything that was said wasn't credible, let alone provable. even so, the new accusations may hurt the oscar-winning actor's ca >> when you start to have other agencies or what we -- allegations or what we call prior bad acts, acts of a similar nature, it makes it a much more difficult case to defend. >> reporter: gooding's current charge is a class-a misdemeanor which is punishable by up to a year in prison if convicted. now we'll have to wait until the new accusation is unsealed in court later today to find out if
7:19 am

"cbs this morning" consumer investigative correspondent, anna werner, has been looking into all of this. good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
7:32 am
in 2015, auto nation said it would no longer sell used cars with open safety recalls but reversed course. they're looking into how many unrepaired used cars are sold to consumers. this isn't limited to auto nation. we checked in with a florida car dealer we met three years ago who says it's still a problem nationwide. in lake park, florida, owner darrell stewart walks through a lot with cars that he ownsy about refuses to sell because they have defective takata airbags. >> if i can't sell a car that i would schoell to my family, i'mt going to sell a car. >> reporter: stewart estimates he's lost close to $600,000 on the cars over the past three years because he can't get the parts to fix them. >> we have to hold those cars until the takata airbag is available to fix it. so i'm suffering a huge amount, most of that half a million dollars plus is from depreciation. >> reporter: but other dealers do sell cars with safety
7:33 am
recalls. a new report from the u.s. public interest research group surveyed 28 auto nation dealerships around the country and says of 2,400 used cars for sale, one out of nine had unrepaired safety recalls. some were takata airbags, and general motors' ignition switches linked to injuries and deaths. adam garber co-authored the report. >> these recalls range from explosive takata airbags to steering malfunctions to seat belt problems that could put the lives of drivers, passengers, and others on the road at risk. even before the purchaser got epn2015, auto nation said it would no longer sell any vehicle used or new with an open safety recall. >> we're going to put the customer first. the customer's safety first. >> reporter: that was former ceo mike jackson on cnbc. >> you better care about recalls. i think the industry has to get its act together around recalls,
7:34 am
and we want to do our part. roy but a little over a year later, auto nation reversed course and resumed selling vehicles with active recalls. jackson told "automotive news," with the trump administration there's flow way that that issue is going -- no way that that issue is going to be addressed from a regulatory point of view. >> auto nation advertises the processes as worry free. they're not worry free. if i have a car with a takata airbag in it, that's something i'm probably worried about. >> reporter: auto nation told us it has not had the opportunity to see the report but disputed its accuracy saying it "repairs the cars if it has the parts or holds the cars if instructed to by manufacturers." for cars it does sell with unrepaired recalls, the company said they sell them with ful disclosure. but democratic senator richard blumenthal who's pushing legislation to outlaw the sales of used cars with unrepaired defects says disclosure isn't enough. >> disclosure's really no substitute for repair. the dealers who say disclosure
7:35 am
is a substitute for repair ignore the plain facts that unsafe vehicles are a menace. not only to the passengers and drivers but to other motorists. >> reporter: auto nation says it complies with all laws and regulations regarding recalls and says any suggestion that it is knowingly or deliberately seeking to mislead consumers is entirely unfounded. >> so what do people need to do to make sure they don't get one of those cars? >> the thing to do is you need, if you're looking at a car, to check the vin number, the vehicle identification number -- >> i have never done that. do people do that? do you? >> yeah. very important. >> you -- >> i don't drive. so -- >> that's right. okay. >> i live in new york ci i don't drive. i live in new york city, we have a subway. >> can you go to our website. we are posting the link to the government website. >> where is the v.i.n. number, anthony? >> you open the hood and i think it's there on the dash. >> and often under the windshield, right in front of

8:02 am
places. welcome with back to "cbs this morning." we begin with this, the white house is taking action against turkey. a nato ally, as the u.s. scrambles to end attacks on kurdish forces in northern syria. president trump signed an executive order imposing sanctions against turkey's government and several turkish officials. the white house is sending a delegation led by vice president mike pence and new national security adviser robert o'brian. now they will try to negotiation a cease-fire with turkey, turkey's invasion and attack on the kurds followed president trump's decision to withdraw u.s. troops from northern syria but the white house insists turkey was planning to invade syria no matter what. the president is just protecting u.s. soldiers. turkey's invasion of northern syria highlights the complicated relationship between the u.s., turkey and the kurds. it's the latest chapter in a long history of tension in the region. the roots of turkey's offensive against the kurds date back
8:03 am
nearly a century. the kurds are a largely muslim ethnic group native to the middle east. they have their own language, culture, and traditions. at the end of world war i, western powers promised the kurds an independent state, but it never happened. instead, the kurds are among the largest groups of people in the world without a state. at least 20 million strong, spread out across turkey, iraq, iran, and syria. but statelessness hasn't kept the kurds from being an ally of the united states. the kurds joined u.s. forces to topp top saddam husan during the iraq e key partners in the fight against isis. >> these kurdish fighters are trying to move in that direction and retake the main asked road to mosul. >> which set the stage for today. for years a kurdish militant group calling for more autonomy has launched violent attacks in
8:04 am
turkey. turkey sees the kurdish fighters in syria as being linked with that militant group. when president trump pulled u.s. troops out of northern syria. >> we want to bring our troops back home. >> turkey moved in. pledging to remove the kurds and create a so-called safe zone where at least a million refugees displaced by the syrian civil war would be returned. and with u.s. troops out of the area, the kurds are now turning to two u.s. adversaries. syrian dictator bashar al assad and russian president vladimir putin for protection. and cbs news senior foreign affairs correspondent and moderator of "face the washington, good morning. things are not looking good in that region and a lot of people say this is exactly as was expected when u.s. troops were region. what are your sources telling you about whether the administratiay aoseemto be ensuing?
8:05 am
>> well there is a divide between people who follow and know the middle east and the president himself. an exasperated source said to me that this is could be the end of the trump presidency. the president does not appreciate the implications of his decision to pull u.s. troops out of syria which will allow turkey to continue its advance. for the people who do know the region, within the administration, they are arguing that the decision amounts to a demolition of u.s. power in the region that will only benefit russia, iran, bashar al assad and isis. yet, the president is convinced that he is doing this country a favor by pulling out a relatively small number of troops. there is no broader strategy or policy. all of this is being retrofitted to fit the president's decision to withdraw. >> it is interesting, margaret, some of his staunch allies are speaking out against him, lindsey graham and michael morell.
8:06 am
y -- mitch mcconnell. you don't see that happen. >> for them it's fall on deaf ears. calls for the president to rethink this decision had no effect and the president doubled down with the late saturday night decision to pull everyone out. and it's also interesting that pentagon itself is saying there are many dangerous isis detainees in syria right now who have been released and so you have the administration warning that isis is running all over eastern syria virtually unchecked and the president doesn't seem concerned it's going to destroy his narrative having defeated isis. that could hurt him when he's on the campaign trail. he believes all of this suspect his problem, but rather the problem of turkey and europe if there's a terror attack. >> what impact are these new sanctions and this visit from vice president pence likely to have on turkey? >> sanctions are going to punish turkey but they're not going to prevent anything. they're punitive, not preventative. the action has been taken. the administration briefed
8:07 am
reporters yesterday and said basically there's nothing america could do to stop turkey. once erdogan consolidates his gains, the cease-fire they're expected to try to broker with vice president pence will still benefit russia as well as iran and turkey. >> margaret brennan, thank you. the top tier candidates could go after each other during tonight's democratic debate. ahead, we'll talk to two former presidential campaign managers about what to expect. plus, how prince william and kate are following in his mother's foot

mistake? well maybe in the grand scheme of things, yeah, but did i make a mistake based on some unethical lapse, absolutely not. >> does that put an end to it? >> case closed? he addressed the issue and it's over? >> nothing to see here. >> i know, sadly. these things are hard. i don't think this is going away and there's no perfect solution. the campaign has to manage through it. if i were sitting next to hunter biden i would say buck up my friend. what happened here is nothing compared to what the trump family has done. >> what do you mean? >> trademarks ivanka getting trademarks in china while she's serving in the west wing. don junior over doing an event with the prime minister of india to sell condos. what he did is nothing compared to that. sat on a board and wasn't doing events with foreign figures. >> what about ism. >> he did profit off of his father's name and, you know, at least he's taking responsibility for it but it does look kind of

they also touch on the new exciting opportunities the show will have moving from new york city to washington, d.c. as he says, that's our fearless leader says it's about straightforward journalism investigations, breaking news. >> she says news with a heart. those are two bad asses in action. i'll get a copy and maybe they'll sign it. norah, can you sign this -- >> you're redecorating your office or can put it up on the fridge. >> congrats to them both. your morning pickup. an excited toddler in texas was caught on video welcoming her siblings home from the school bus. i love this. this clip has been viewed hundreds and thousands of times. their mom says the story of the two sisters began years ago. it's a way she runs to her sister and she just throws the ballpark away to pick her up. i love this. the big sister prayed for a little sister even though she loves her brother. and their family had not planned
8:33 am
on another child. so no one was more excited -- look at this. i love this so much. the little sister made the appearance, the mom runs a blog that has tips to cherish every day. >> we had a picture when the little sister was first born. do we have that? look at her face when her sister was first born. normally when a sibling comes, they look at you like, how long are they staying? 'sour other -- >> put them out in the garbage is what i recall. >> i find the trick is to bring a gift from the baby to the older sibling. >> yes. >> very good. >> a very smart trick. >> i like it. >> lovely. all right. >> aaliyah. thank you so much. a aaliyah. john grisham is known as king of the legal thriller. the bestselling author has sold more than 300 million copies of his books worldwide and include classics like "the firm," "a time to kill," and "the pelican brief." his newest is "the guardians." it tells the story of a murdered lawyer and one organization's journey to exonerate a man wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for 22 years. the "los angeles times" called it an inside look at the dirty machineries of process and power
8:34 am
with plenty of entertainment. you would not expect him to lose that. john grisham joins us at the table. thank you for being here. >> always a pleasure. >> welcome. >> 300 million-plus books. >> who's counting? >> your wife is counting. >> who knows how many we sell? >> your wildfire -- your wife and us. >> it was 300 last year. wasn't jst hoingk ar are you doing a book a year? i marvel that you can do this. >> i've done a book a year since 1991. >> wow. every one has gone to number one. >> yes. well, yeah. but who's counting? >> so with the new one, colin post is a lawyer-turned-minister. i was not aware that lawyers could become ministers, at least not in your book typically. >> he's a reformed lawyer. he's a lawyer in recovery who -- who finds god. >> and does what with that? >> it's his calling to take innocence cases and exonerate innocent people from prison.
8:35 am
and it's based on some real-life innocence lawyers i know who dedicate their careers to exonerating innocent people because there are a lot of innocent people in prison. >> yes. >> he tries to help a character named quincy miller, a black man convicted of murder, maintaining his innocence. >> yes. he becomes convinced quincy is innocent and gets more than he bargained for. the real murderer in quincy's case does not want quincy out of prison. >> right. >> so in the real -- the real murderer is still out there. it gets complicated. >> they're still trying to get quincy. you also tell about duke russell, also on death row. and so -- but was this inspired by your own work with the innocence project? you started looking at these cases and said "there is a story here"? because you're right, there are a lot of stories like this. >> every wrongful conviction is a fantastic story because of the level of human suffering, the injustice, the just storytelling, all the factors that we love in stories. they a wrongful conviction -- i wish i could write every one of them. i published "the innocent man," my only nonfiction book, in 2006 and became aware of wrongful
8:36 am
convictions and how many there are. we see them all the time now. all these exonerations. they're fantastic stories. i wish i had time to write all of them. >> you dedicate this to james mcclosky. the exonerater. >> he's a remarkable man, and he started a ministry 45 years ago. for 45 years he's roamed the country, taking a few cases at a time. 45 years later he's exonerated 63 people. >> wow. >> innocent people. that's his -- his claim to fame. dedicated his life to it. so the ministry now is based in princeton. a wonderful organization with a staff. they litigate from coast to coast and get innocent people out. >> the other thing the book touches on is how you get the forensic experts to testify. and often the -- what they're testifying is very faulty evidence and they know that. >> it's junk science. >> junk science is how you describe it. >> yeah. >> we have no forensic standards in this country. we're trying to adopt them.
8:37 am
but there are thousands of people in prison who were put there by bogus experts. people who testify about bite mark analysis or boot print analysis or hair -- >> blood prints. blood spatters, yeah. >> most of it's not based on science. and what's happened, dna's come along and exposed some of these guys. it's still impossible to get the innocent people out of prison. we're working with the innocence project, centurian ministries, working to undo the bogus cases. >> it would shake my faith in the legal process if i were a lawyer or a judge, you used to be a lawyer. do you hear of prosecutors saying i can't public in this business because i have doubt now? >> i don't hear that. what you see, though, jurors are far more skeptical now. they don't believe everything that the police and prosecutors them. that's why death verdicts are declining rapidly in america.
8:38 am
>> wow. >> that's why the -- the death penalty's dying. not because of courageous lawmakers, not because of courageous judges. because of courageous jurors. they hear the whole story, and some of these crimes defy description. what they do, they listen to the defendant's whole story. and they say, okay, we -- we're going to vote for life without parole as opposed to death. and that's what's happening in america. >> and unfortunately, a lot of these cases involve men of color and both -- in your book, i was glad that in both cases they were men of color who had been falsely accused. you're seeing more of that. it's good to hear that jurors are more skeptical about the evidence that is presented to them. >> gayle, racism is so inherent in the system -- >> i know. >> because black -- defendants of color are just treated differently. >> yes. >> by the police and prut the system treats them
8:39 am
differently. >> uh-huh. i'm glad you're shining a lot on that. in this case -- >> that's my job. >> flashlight played a crucial role in this -- >> i bought you a mug. always get coffee mugs here. my compensation for being here. >> you brought me one, thank you. >> you guys don't pay very well. >> sorry about that. >> i brought you your own mug made by my son-in-law in raleigh, north carolina -- >> thank you. it has my name. >> fabulous. >> i have one for you guys, too. >> you know i love stuff with my prlways re. >> see you next year -- >> hello to renee. see you next year. mrs. grisham.

8:44 am
experience as a member of the lgbtq community. he uses humor to tackle tough topics like gun control in skits on "the daily show." >> we don't need gun control. we just need to decrease gun ownership. >> okay, but how do you decrease gun ownership without gun-control laws? >> easy, trevor. we just need to make guns gay. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> okay. wait. wait, wait. i don't understand. i don't -- as far as i know, guns don't have a sexual orientation. >> well, not at the moment, trevor, not yet.bu't th reaju it them they're worried so we just need to harness that same toxic masculinity and just direct it toward [ laughter ] >> there he is. first on "cbs this morning," jaboukie young -white and "g.q." editor-in-chief will welch join
8:45 am
us at the table. welcome to you both, gentlemen. >> thank you so much. >> i want to start with you, will. i love when you got the job, most people said congrats, yay, bravo. one friend said, yikes, hell of a time to be editor-in-chief of a men's magazine. you took it as what? >> a reality check. she was throwing the gauntlet saying this is -- this is exciting, it's a big role, congratulations. but this is serious work. >> you said what is men's role in what call the shutup and listen era. >> yeah. >> that was your take on it. >> yeah and the new masculinity issue which came out yesterday, we -- >> very provocative cover. >> it is a provocative cover. you got to get people's attention in this environment. >> i love it. it is stunning. >> we started working on this issue in january. and that's partially because it is sort of this shut-up and listen moment where people don't -- women especially don't want men just barging in like we're going to fix this. we take that aspect seriously. we wanted to take our time with it, do it right. and really get all the dials set
8:46 am
in the right place. we're proud of the result. >> re-examining masculinity is not only good for women, it's good for men. it's freeing and exercising in your interview you say for many men the way they learn masculinity is through getting it beat into them. like a scar on their identity. can you talk about that? >> absolutely. i think that so many of us, the traits we pick up in our childhood are things that not -- that we maybe didn't naturally gravitate toward, but we were taught, no, this is the way it's supposed to be. and you sort of correct yourself over time and build on what that natural impulse was to just like express yourself. >> you talk about what you heard in your dad's barber shop, for example. >> yeah. >> a bastion of male -- of masculinity. >> yes. >> the black barber shop. >> yeah. >> been there many times. yes. >> 100%. i remember when the "dangerously in love" video came out. i was doing that in back, they said you can't do that. why can't i do that? it's popping, why would i not? yeah, i think that it's stuff like that where i feel like for
8:47 am
me, coming to terms with not being straight, i was just like, okay, well, i'm already existing outside of this, so a lot of this doesn't apply to me. i can pick and choose. but there are a lot of people who feel the pressure to adhere to every single thing that they're told they need to be in. >> reporter: you did a survey, 1,000 men and women about the state of masculinitien. what did you find? >> 97% of respondents said they noticed masculinity is changing. this is real. this is happening. it's not something we made up out of thin air. the other thing that stuck out is 30% of men said they were confused by the changes. that was a real call to action for me and for the team at "g.q.." >> you feel like -- >> for me the new masculinity is simple. it's i know who i am, and i respect who you are. it comes down to that. >> yeah. >> i'm aware. i'm free to express myself. i also respect jaboukie's right to express himself. i wouldn't ever put my needs -- i wouldn't project those on him, and i ask the same thing in return.
8:48 am
>> that's what i want to know, when you say changing, changing how? >> yeah -- >> that vulnerability is okay is one of the things that you point out so it's something that we've last issue brad pitt and his cover story was talking about growing up in the ozarks, not feeling free to be in touch with his feelings. the process of becoming an adult for him has been about learning to be vulnerable. >> should male anchors have to wear seats on tv? wear suits on tv? asking for a friend. go. >> i felt that i should wear one today out of respect for gayle. but otherwise, i think it's a free-for-all. you try the yellow coat -- >> yes! yes. >> try the -- tony, try showing up in this yellow coat and see what happens -- see what we say about that. >> thank you. coming up before we go, how neighbors came together to help a homeless man. we'll be right back.
