7:04 am
david, how cold is it there? >> reporter: 31 degrees. just cold enough to make this reporter's teeth chatter on national television. look, here's the headline -- this is the first major snowstorm of the season for the area. you'd expect that this time of year. what you wouldn't expect is for the snow to stretch as far south as tennessee. this is part of an arctic blast bringing subfreezing temperatures to many parts of the u.s. let's start in south dakota, shall we? the plains and the midwest have seen snow, rapid city got about five inches. there was a no travel advisory that was issued because of how much snow fell in the city over the weekend. to minneapolis now, vehicles were stuck along interstate 35 near downtown. temperatures in minneapolis started out in the single signatures. high of just 17. in iowa, parts of eastern iowa could get four to six inches of snow. our forecast calls for ten inches of snow.

7:07 am
to do with the accusation from several officials that the president withheld military aid and pushed ukraine to investigate the bidens and other democrats. nancy cordes is on capitol hill for us. nancy, good morning. what's going on here? >> reporter: well, here's the list, tony, of the republicans' wish list, if you will, preferred witnesses for this week's public hearings. there are nine names on the list. as you mentioned, one of them is hunter biden who sat on the board of a ukrainian energy company. republicans say they also want to hear from another former board member, as well as a former dnc staffer. neither of whom were mentioned in the partial transcript of the call with ukraine's president or by any other witnesses. but this is part of the republican strategy. they want to call witnesses who they feel would bolster their argument that president trump was simply trying to investigate corruption in ukraine. they also want to bring attention back to claims about hunter biden's work in ukraine, though there has been no evidence of any wrongdoing there. house intelligence chairman adam schiff said that he would evaluate the list but that he would not allow these hearings to become, quote, sham investigations into the bidens or debunked conspiracy theories.
7:08 am
democrats have scheduled public hearings with several witnesses who have already described behind closed doors what they said was a pressure campaign in ukraine in these closed door testimonies. it begins wednesday with the top diplomat to ukraine, bill taylor. he has said that his clear understanding was that military aid to ukraine would not be released until ukraine agreed to investigate the bidens. >> of course, we'll have special coverage of the hearing. for this morning, we've gotten word that another house republican won't be seeking re-election next year. what can you tell us? >> reporter: that's right. new york's peter king has announced that he is going to be retiring after 14 terms in congress. he says that this wasn't an easy decision, but he wants to spend more time with his kids and grandkids. he did say that before he goes, he will vote against impeaching the president. he will also, he said, support the president's bid for re-election. now king is a popular congressman. he is a fixture on tv. so he's pretty well-known up in new york and around the country. but it's not that easy being in
7:09 am
the minority party. so he becomes the 17th house republican to announce he will not be seeking re-election. meaning there's going to be a lot of tossup seats come 2020. former u.n. ambassador, nikki haley, says other trump cabinet members tried to recruit her to resist the president's actions. in an interview with cbs anchor norah o'donnell, haley accused john kelly and rex tillerson, in her words, of undermining the president. weijia jiang is here in studio norah o'donnell, haley accused john kelly and rex tillerson, in her words, of undermining the president. weijia jiang is here in studio 57 with more on this story. good morning to you. what else is nikki haley saying? >> good morning. nikki haley told cbs news the former trump aides should have quit if they didn't like the president's actions and said their attempts to circumvent him go against the constitution.
7:10 am
this isn't the first time we're hearing of staffers' attempts to go around president trump. >> to undermine a president is really a very dangerous thing. >> reporter: speaking to norah o'donnell on sunday morning, former u.n. ambassador nikki haley doubled down on claims that senior white house officials asked her to subvert president trump. haley writes in a book out this week that then-chief of staff john kelly and then-secretary of state rex tillerson, quote, confided in me that when they resisted the president they weren't being insubordinate. they were trying to save the country. >> the secretary of state tillerson went on to tell you the reason he resisted the president's decisions was because if he didn't, people would die. do you memorialize that conversation that definitely happened? >> it absolutely happened. and instead of saying that to me, they should have been saying that to the president, not asking me to join them on their sidebar plan.
7:11 am
>> reporter: in an interview with cbs news political contributor bob schieffer, tillerson said he had openly criticized the commander in chief's addition making. >> i would have to say, i understand what you want to do, but you can't do it that way. it violates the law. it violates the treaty. >> reporter: responding to haley, kelly said "if by resistance installing means putting a staff process in place to ensure the president knew all the pros and cons of what policy decision he might be contemplating, then guilty as charged." it seems those weren't the only attempts to temper president trump's impulses. a purported senior trump official wrote in an anonymous "new york times" column last september that top staffers are working dentally from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations. >> an anonymous editorial, can you believe it, anonymous, meaning gutless. >> reporter: speaking at a
7:12 am
summit in georgia last month, kelly said he had second thoughts about leaving the administration and added that he told the president there could be consequences for surrounding himself with yes men. >> don't hire someone that will just, you know, nod and say "that's a great idea, mr. president," because you will be impeached. >> reporter: president trump claims general kelly never said anything like his warning about impeachment, and if he had, quote, i would have thrown him out of office. in relation to those haley comments, the white house and tillerson have not responded to our requests for comment. >> very interesting. >> curious to see what they're thinking because some people are saying it looks like they were thrown under the bus and then the bus is running over them. beep, beep, beep. >> yeah, but it does expose what the senior aides were saying about president trump. so it's sort of a double-edge sword. >> rex tillerson notably silent on this. haley we're hearing from. >> thanks. one of latin america's
7:13 am
longest serving leaders, bolivian president avo morales, abruptly announced his resignation. the decision was met with jubilation in the streets of la paz after weeks of violent unrest and fresh the country's military and police. morales faced protests when he ran for a fourth term, despite a referendum calling for term limits. on october 20th, he won re-election, but observers say the vote may have been rigged. morales says he's the victim of a coup. he says he'll fight on. his current whereabouts are unknown. it's not clear yet who will replace him or even how bolivia's next leader will be chosen. in hong kong today, an anti-government protester was shot at pointblank range by a police officer, and it's caught on tape. another man was set on fire. both incidents come on the worst weekday violence in more than five months of demonstrations there. we have more from the developments in beijing, and we should warn you, the video of the shooting is quite graphic.

[ gunshot ] >> reporter: a police officer attempting to subdue one protester dressed in white is confronted by another dressed in black. three shots are fired, and the 21-year-old falls to the ground, shot in the abdomen at pointblank range. police later said the man was trying to seize his weapon and did not want to hurt him. several hours later, a man, his face already covered in blood, was caught on tape arguing with someone off camera. he's doused in fuel and set on fire. which was later extinguished. on monday, protesters brought the workday to a halt, smashing chinese-owned banks and businesses throughout the central business district. police responded using teargas and water cannon to subdue the

7:16 am
how's the teenager doing? >> reporter: exactly. the student suffers from epilepsy. she was taken to the emergency room after the attack. and her family's attorney told me she's going treated for severe injuries. the hayes county sheriff's office has not said what led up to the attack, but the family's attorney says they want to ensure it never happens again. the dramatic footage was released on social media. investigators say the 16-year-old student appears to strike the former teacher, 32-year-old tiffany lankford, in the face. lankford fights back, repeatedly punching the student, throws her to the ground, and stomps on her head. >> it makes me very angry. it makes me feel sad for that child. >> reporter: lankford was arrested at the school in kyle, texas, and charged with a second-degree felony of aggravated assault. school officials issued a statement saying in part, "there is absolutely no excuse or circumstance that can justify what you see unfold on the video." >> what sort of example are you setting? >> reporter: michael bower had a son who graduated from lehman high just last year.
7:17 am
>> no matter what a kid says to you, i mean, short of them pulling a weapon on you, i don't see any cause for that sort of reaction. >> reporter: a tenth grader who was in the class and didn't want to be identified told reporters lankford was aggravated by students who were laughing. >> me and a group of friends were all laughing. it was just a joke somebody said. >> reporter: the attorney for the family issued a statement, "this is unacceptable, to say the least, and we will demand justice to the fullest extent of the law to enact the change so obviously necessary." the school fired lankford. she had only been working as a substitute for the district since august. lehman high school will have crisis counselors on hand to work with students and staff. >> i hope there's more than a firing there. that's a perfect example of somebody who should not be in a classroom with children, whatever happened. >> those students, they were taking the video, but they also got help. >> good. >> very tough to see that. thank you. texas governor greg abbott faces new pressure to call off

8:04 am
the country. jeff, thank you very much. let's get back to capitol hill where the impeachment inquiry against president trump enters a dramatic phase this week. it is the third time in modern history a president has faced impeachment. this morning we're looking at what led to the resignation of president nixon in 1974 over the watergate scandal. he was accused of abusing his office, just as president trump has been accused. chief washington correspondent major garrett is at the white house. good morning. how is this investigation different? >> well, there is so many differences in our country, in the way institutions are viewed, the way the media is viewed, congress, the presidency itself. all those things are different. but let's go to the investigation itself. the nixon investigation played out slowly. largely at the end in public view and the president's attorneys were able to mount a defense, though that defense wilted against the available evidence. president trump's attorneys have had very little access to the evidence or the witnesses. it's been conducted, this
8:05 am
investigation, largely in sec t secret. another big difference is in the end because political support collapsed, president nixon resigned before the house passed a single article of impeachment. it's quite clear mr. trump will not. >> here is walter cronkite in washington. >> shortly before president nixon resigned, walter cronkite said all of washington anticipated the final act of the watergate drama. >> he is the ultimate victim of the watergate scandal that destroyed his presidency. >> now president trump sounds defiant and unmovable. >> they want to impeach me because it is the only way they're going to win. they've got nothing. >> the watergate investigation began in the senate with tim pleading. >> we stand ready to discuss the matter with you at your convenience. >> today has members passing by microphones. >> things have gone from bad to much worse.
8:06 am
>> this ridiculous charade, you can understand why the president is frustrated. >> they voted to authorize the inqui inquiry. >> to investigate fully and completely. >> led by new jersey's peter rodino. this time it was plainly partis partisan. >> the resolution is adopted. >> two nixon special prosecutors led the initial watergate investigations. evidence was then submitted to congress. to slow the probe, nixon fired him creating a debilitating political firestorm. adam schiff is the leading investigator now, drawing mr. trump's outrage. >> what crooked schiff is doing, he's a corrupt politician. >> he focussed on a politically motivated blurry and a government cover-up. >> thank you very much. >> the current impeachment process dealing with ukraine and allegations of dangling military
8:07 am
aid for perceived political favors has moved much faster. cbs news legal analyst. >> the greatest difference is that there has been very little evidentiary work that has been done. you know, the democrats are going from 0 to 60 in about 100 feet. >> he also said the range of ukraine linked misdeeds against mr. trump appear smaller than the allegations that doomed nixon. >> it appears they're going to go forward largely on this phone call and the ukrainian controversy. if they do that, it will be the narrowest impeachment in history, and they will have one of the most limited evidentiary records in history. >> the watergate saga unfolded slowly four months after the 1972 break-in tried to put the key facts in one place. >> we shall try tonight to pull together the threads of this amazing story, quite unlike any in our modern america history. >> major, there are some
8:08 am
intriguing similarities and differences between these two inquires. but if history doesn't repeat itself, what are the political implications for the democrats as they push along at this rate and at this time? >> speed matters. and if you move too quickly and the public cannot catch up with the facts you are presenting, you lose or at least you lose in terms of public opinion being moved by the evidence you present the public. also, democrats have a high standard to meet here. it means the president will do something that is a threat to the office. that's a high bar. the evidence has to be presented. the public has to see it and evaluate it before you can move. democrats at this pace seem to be moving that process much more rapidly than at least previous impeachments have. >> we start to see it wednesday, major. thank you very much. apple's new credit card faces accusations it's sexest. we explain what's behind the

...doesn't mean you got to spend a lot! because denny's brought back the super slam™. with eggs, hash browns, bacon, sausage and pancakes. all for just $6.99. the $6.99 super slam™ is back! see you at denny's! one of apple's co-founders is accusing the company's new digital credit card of gender discrimination. apple introduced the card in august partnering with goldman sachs. applicants go through a credit approval process. last week one entrepreneur said the alga rhythms being used are sexist. he said he got ten times the
8:16 am
credit limit his wife received even though they have no separate accounts or separate assets. apple deferred to goldman sachs that said our decisions are based on a customer's credit worthiness. cbs news contributor nick thompson is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> cast your mind back to the old, old days. somebody sits behind a desk and looks at your application. now computers do it. is this flawed? >> it could be flawed. it could be biassed. one of the biggest problems in our time is biases are hard to pick out because they're built into complex algorithmic systems. but there is another explanation. one of the founders of apple makes a lot of money. so if you make a ton of money and your wife doesn't and you apply for separate cards you might get different credit limits because your credit limit is based on your credit score.
8:17 am
>> he was saying they weren't segregated. >> he's applying for a different account. that doesn't mean thebiassed. it is that the data we have right now is not the most compelling example. >> can you make alga rhythms transparent? >> it is hard because the computer is making decisions that the human doesn't make. for a lot of ai you say optimize for x, optimize for y. for example, in credit approvals you might say look at all the data and optimize for a system that minimizes defaults. and then you don't know what goes into that. >> you are saying some of these companies don't know how their own alga rhythms work. >> they don't know exactly how it is getting there. so you can try to audit it. you can try to break it apart. you can look at different factors, take different inputs, but it is a complicated process. it is one of the most interesting questions of our time. how do we get justice in a system we don't know how the
8:18 am
alga rhythms are working? >> you can argue that it is not the old white bank manager making a decision. it is a machine that doesn't have the biases built in. >> one of the reasons why when this story break i was a little skeptical is probably the system is set up to do what i said before, minimize default. a system that's set to minimize defaults is not going to give all men 20 times the credit limit of all women. perhaps it will have a tiny difference based on historical data. i would expect maybe it would be beneficial for woman who are maybe more responsible with their credit. so this story sounds like it probably -- the outcome we're seeing is probably connected to the very high income of the tech founders tweeting about it. >> so there is a bigger problem here than what it appears to be? >> i think this story is probably not the best example of a huge issue. >> nick thompson, thank you very much. do dating apps really help

an . an estimated 25 million american 25 million adults used dating apps in the past year. 39% of hetero sexual cowl ps and 65% of same sex couples who met in 2016 did so on the internet. despite that same say it keeps people locked into an endless cycle of rejections and many feel more disconnected and lonely before. they are calling it speaking frankly dating apps which looks at the benefits and down sides of technology driven court ships. here is an episode. >> the more that you say that you are interested in a person and you hear back that that same person is interested in you, that can be a little bit of a
8:22 am
rush and a reward that kind of makes you want to continue using that app. >> a lot of the times i was constantly checking my notifications. every time i would try to do homework or something and once i hear that sound i would constantly look at my phone, see who matches me, see who responded. even times when i was trying to go to slope, i was constantly looking or seeing if somebody meshes me back or who messages me. >> i think part of the game is trying to figure out what the other person wants and that's when you win. that's when they say, yes, i see what you're selling me and i want. >> i hear from my friends that are using dating apps that they are exhausted. they find the process to be very time consuming. >> part of the burnout comes from being overwhelmed by choices, having too many opportunities, not actually meeting up with people and engaging with our phones more so than with each other. >> there is a problem that social scientists have named the
8:23 am
paradox of choice. that is that we think having lots of choices would be amazing and get us exactly what we want. but it turns out that many things, the more choices we have, the more miserable we become. so we think we're excited about someone and then we swipe and there is another amazing person who appears. we make a mistake, which is that too many people think of the faces on their screen as options. the truth is you're not an option until you show up for the date and express interest in someone. basically most of the time you are just a bubble on the screen. >> the executive producer joins us now. i love everything that they said right there. why is it -- why is it making us more lonely to have all these options? >> aside from the paradox of choice or the paralysis of choice that many people face is this phenomena of deindividualization. so when you are on your phone,
8:24 am
you are shielded by your screen. your avenue tar is your proxy and there is a vail of anonymity. people are likely to engage in behaviors they might not in real life. we see this across social media. this isn't just the tating apps phenomen phenomenon. over time you begin to treat other people not as people but as objects or as options. >> it becomes almost like a video game for people. >> absolutely. before you know it you are mindlessly treating it like a video game and you are swiping away. what is interesting is that a lot of these apps have -- they have been built from the ground up to feel like a game. color schemes, the graphics that sounds that come in when someone shows an interest in you is gratifying. you were talking about instagram and the gratification that comes with likes. it's similar on dating apps. >> how do you make it positive, adam? >> one of the things is that people can burn out. but experts say, look, you are on a dating app for a reason.
8:25 am
you have lost sight of what you goal is. but if your goal is to meet someone, go back to those. treat people like people. >> thanks very much. >> i %fo welcome back. i'm gianna franco. it is 8:25. we have a major traffic accident as you work your way in oakland causing delays on eastbound 580 at harrison. it is the non-commute direction but delays on the westbound side as well. injury crash has the three lanes blocked eastbound. they have issued a special traffic alert, a little slow go towards the scene of 980 not far from harrison so try to avoid that area if you can. the rest of the bay is fairly quiet. a lot of folks with the day off because of the veterans holiday. we had foggy conditions early on, but that has dissipated as well, so things are clear into
8:26 am
san francisco. no delays on the golden gate bridge and an easy ride into the city. looks like the san mateo bridge also looking good between 880 and 101. >> mary. >> a very pleasant veterans day forecast across the region and that sunshine. you can even see that on our cliff house ocean beach camera with the sun. the weather headlines. a chilly start. daytime highs above average running 5 to 10 degrees above average. today the warmest day out of the week. on this veterans day, mild to warm temperatures for concord as well as for san jose. looking at upper 70s. mid-70s from oakland, moundview, 70 in san francisco. 82 for a high in santa rosa. so the weather system to our north across the pacific northwester will bring rain for them. for us cooler temperatures, but staying dry. thursday will be the coolest day out of the week and warming up friday and into the weekend.

8:31 am
they were featured, of course, in the 2016 book "hidden figures," later turned into a movie that was nominated for several oscars. a great film if you haven't seen it. it's an amazing story. another thing i like about this is that a fifth gold medal was granted in honor of all women who contributed to nasa during the space race. >> like that. >> wonderful. >> about time. >> that's the power of authorship. without the book, the movie doesn't happen. without the movie i don't think congress does this. >> the four women who were pioneers don't get recognized and the credit they serve. tony? >> a u.s. navy submarine missing for 75 years has been found off okinawa, japan. the "uss grayback" sailed out of pearl harbor on january 28th, 1944, for its 10th combat patrol and never came back. two months later, it was listed as missing and presumed lost and remained lost. its location was unknown until last year. an amateur researcher in japan detected a mistake in the latitude and longitude of the

delivery so that men and women who did serve will feel a pride when they hear this song. so i -- i talked to the director prior to his having the cut put together. he gave me some key anecdotal lines the producers discussed with him. i asked him what is the name, the title of the film, he said "to be of service." i got it. >> ding, ding, ding. when i watched and heard the song, you captured everything brilliantly in your song. because they talk about what the dogs mean to them serving, 22 -- 22 people a day die from suicide who are veterans. but the thing that got me, they all said they would do it all again. that's what you said in your song, too. >> i was trying to find hope at the end of the journey here. and to think that each of these men and women said the one thing is that i would do it all again, when you're making a record, usually you end it with the chorus. >> yes. >> in this case, it was such a
