crude sexual advances. rose has now responded. abc's linsey davis has the latest. >> reporter: unso list tedded shoulder rubbing, showering in front of college, some of the accusations named against him. five of the women who came forward saying dating back to the '90s he grabbed their leg, an act they say they viewed as a test to gauge their reaction. >> as an actor you're constantly observing. >> reporter: a slew of sexual harassment and assault allegations lodged against journalist and tv host charlie rose. >> what you can do, what you can do. >> reporter: rose renowned for his probing questions on his iconic show. >> how important is it to have, you know, a full understanding of what it does for us. >> reporter: has sat down with guests ranging from presidents to pop stars. >> what is this talent? >> i don't know what it is. >> reporter: but n
7:03 am
tell "the washington post" the pbs staple, "cbs this morning" co-host and, "60 minutes" contributor made unwanted sexual advances toward them several saying he groped them and one tells the pain he was a sexual predator and i was his victim. >> one woman we spoke to who worked for him as an intern in the 1990s recalled him coming out of the shower naked. she confided in one person, you know, the next day a male producer came up to her laughing saying, oh, i heard you got the shower trick. >> reporter: one of rose's tippett in the mid-2000s tells the paper about at least a dozen instances where rose walked nude in front of her while she worked in one of his new york city homes and says he would repeatedly call her late at night to describe his fancies of her swimming naked and told yvette vega who said that's charily being charlie. she says now i should have stood

to were working with him at an early stage in their career. for them and trying to move forward and on from the show, i think that there would be a tremendous risk, you know, to speaking out against his behavior if you were possibly worried about getting a job in media. >> reporter: in response to the allegations rose says it is essential that these women know i hear them and that i deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. i have behaved insensitively at times and i accept responsibility for that. though i do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. i always felt that i was pursuing shared feelings, even though i now realize i was mistaken. earlier this year rose was asked about former fox news anchor bill o'reilly after he was fired from the network following allegations of sexual harassment. >> all of the cases that raise the issue of sexual harassment which is a terrible thing have probably been not exposed enough, not enough in the sense of attention in the past so people we
7:05 am
i think people are coming forward now. >> reporter: pbs and bloomberg suspended distribution of "the charlie rose show" and cbs announced he is suspended. three additional women say they were harassed and "the washington post" reporter said more women have reached out to them and they plan to do additional reporting so maybe more to come. >> seems that way. all right. >> thanks, linsey. now those troubling new allegations of sexual misconduct affecting the senate. a second woman says senator al franken groped her. franken was a sitting senator at the time on this one. critics are calling for an investigation. abc's david wright is on capitol hill with that story for us. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. senator franken tells us he has no plans to resign and welcomes an ethics investigation but as
7:06 am
others grapples with the behavior of some of the men in its midst, it's a bipartisan issue. senator franken's second accuser, 33-year-old lindsay menz told kr cnn the senator grabbed her rear end when she posed with him at the minnesota state fair for this photo shared on social media. as my husband took the picture he put his hand full-fledged on my rear, she said. he totally grabbed my butt. franken tells abc news i take thousands of photos at the state fair surrounded by hundreds of people and i certainly don't remember taking this picture but adds i feel badly that ms. menz came away from our interaction feeling disrespected. these new allegations come just days after radio personality leeann tweeden accused franken of forcibly kissing her backstage during their 2006 uso tour. >> i was just disgusted. >> reporter: on the military flight home the uso photographer
7:07 am
the senator has been keeping a low profile holed up in his daughter's washington, d.c. home. he's issued a blanket apology saying he'll cooperate with the ethics investigation, quote, i respect women. i don't respect men who don't and the fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed. in alabama no such mea culpa from republican roy moore. >> pressure does not cause me want to step down. it causes me to want to stand up. >> reporter: eight separate women have accused him of sexual misconduct. some of them say moore molested them when they were teenagers. that alabama special election takes place in early december. it's essentially become a referendum on those allegations, meanwhile, here in washington, senator franken is already feeling the heat. last night pbs edited him out of a kennedy center special honoring david letterman. george. >> the fallout continues. let's get more from our
7:08 am
white house correspondent cecilia vega. and, cecilia, on this roy moore senate race we're seeing a real evolution in the white house position on roy moore as you and others in the white house briefing room press sarah sanders and others every single day. they're now inching towards some support of moore. let's listen. >> obviously the president wants people, both in the house and the senate, that support his agenda but as i've said and as the hatch act prohibits me from going further we think this is something the people of alabama should decide. >> reporter: yeah, so that had been the default answer of the white house, that it's up to alabama voters to decide but started with kellyanne conway here on the north lawn of the white house yesterday asked if alabamans now support roy moore in this race. her answer was she bashed his democratic opponent doug jones and offered what sounded very much like an endorsement of roy moore so right now this is the question for this white house and this president, is the official position that
7:09 am
assaulting teenage girls in office than a democrat, george. >> well, they certainly seem to be getting towards that as they say they want someone who supports the president's agenda in that seat. in a lot of news overnight as well. a setback for the president's sanctuary city policy where he wanted to deny federal funding to them. >> reporter: like new york and los angeles, cities that limit cooperation with immigration authorities. the president wants to force them to assist in deportation of undocumented immigrants by cutting off funding to these places. so far no response from the white house on this judge's order but the justice department says this court exceeded its authority, george, they are saying they will fight back. >> at the same time, cecilia, the white house and the administration announcing they're going to send back haitians who came to the united states after that 2010 earthquake. >> reporter: yeah, haitians here who have this protected status will be allowed to stay in the country until july 2019. this came after john kelly, the now chief of staff, f
7:10 am
a trip to the island earlier this year. he came back essentially saying that haiti has made considerable progress in the wake of that earthquake there and that this group can return home. here is the problem with this, though, george. these people have been in this country for nearly a decade. they own hopes and their children have been born here so sending them back to haiti will be a lot easier said than done for this administration. >> thanks very much. robin. >> all right, also this morning president trump is stepping up pressure on north korea over its nuclear program putting that regime back on the list of state sponsors of terrorism. the president says this action should have been taken a long time ago. and will have serious consequences. >> this designation will impose further sanctions and penalties on north korea and related persons and supports our maximum pressure campaign to isolate the murderous regime. >> for more our chief sfloebl affairs correspondent martha raddatz joins us from washington, d.c.
7:11 am
robin. north korea was taken off the terror list in 2008 by president bush as part of a deal he hoped would end north korea's nuclear desi desires. that clearly did not work and it is far from clear that putting north korea back on the list will have any effect either. north korea is already heavily sanctioned and still vows never to give up its nuclear weapons program. but this is a strong symbolic message to kim jong-un that the u.s. will keep up the pressure. president trump has, of course, been doing that with fiery language and increased military presence as you heard him say he calls this a maximum pressure campaign, robin. >> we'll see what the response will be. okay, martha, thank you. >> now we go to the holiday travel rush kicking off this morning. more than 50 million are expected to hit the roads and skies according to aaa. 45 million driving and gio benitez is there. how is it going out
7:12 am
>> reporter: hey, michael, good morning. listen, right now we're seeing pretty good travel movement here. there's not much going on but over the next few hours, that's when we're going to see more and more traffic. those travelers will be mixing in with the work commuters. so many are still working. let's take a look at the worst travel times. this is according to waze, the worst traffic today across america between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. and peaks at around 5:00 p.m. so that's why travel experts actually suggest you do your travel on thanksgiving morning. that's when you're going to see the least traffic on the roads, michael. >> what about when you're ready to come home. great to get there but after you are all full of turkey you have to get on the road and come home. >> reporter: the worst traffic is going to be on monday. two times, 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on monday. sunday afternoon is going to be a little rough too but believe it or not the best time to get on the road to head back home is on black friday and that's because, guess what, so many people are shopping, michael. >> a
7:13 am
you just have to have it at your house. >> that's right, michael. i like how you think. as millions travel coast to coast we're closely watching new storms moving in. ginger, you're following a few trouble spots. >> yi, one would be western new york. up to ten inches of lake-effect snow already fell with the bands we were showing you. the roads very slick there in syracuse, new york, it was in the tug hill plateau where you saw some of those high snow totals come in. very normal for this time of year but, of course, that could stop you up especially as a cold front passes and northeast will get rain early tomorrow morning so if you are commuting or doing your holiday travel on wednesday morning and then back in interior new england lake-effect snow showers will kick up. a stationary front draped over northern and central florida and wet one in florida. the biggest issue, seattle to portland where you'll have heavy rains coming from these storms and you could see mudslides and debris flows in areas they had burn scars. back to you. >> we'll get the latest on the killing of a border
7:14 am
in texas. his partner injured on the scene and president trump speaking out on the incident and abc's marcus moore is in el paso with new reporting on where and how the agents were found. good morning, marcus. >> reporter: george, good morning. we just got an update from the hospital where that surviving agent was airlifted over the weekend. he is till in icu this morning listed in critical but stable condition and overnight law enforcement sources are telling abc news that the responding border protection agents when they arrived at the scene at about 11:20 at night they found these two men suffering from traumatic head injuries and broken bones. this at the bottom of a ravine. the border protection agent rogelio martinez passed away from his injuries and this morning what exactly happened is still a mystery. but sources close to this investigation are also telling abc news that these two agents were responding to a sensor which detects human activity at the border but says there is so little evidence they cannot rule out the possibility that they fell into this ravine accide accidentally
7:15 am
but the president and others calling this a brutal attack. >> reporter: yeah, that's right, george, in addition to the president and texas senator ted cruz, the governor here in texas, greg abbott, he is describing this as a murder and is offering a $20,000 reward for information and an arrest and also a conviction in this case, george. >> marcus, thanks very much. >> all right, thank you, george. now to the $85 billion showdown between the trump administration and at&t, the justice department has sued to block the company's bid to take over time warner and rebecca jarvis is here, rebecca, why is the justice department fighting this deal? >> good morning, happy birthday, michael. the doj is blocking it because it would mean higher monthly television bills and fewer options for consumers and say the combination of at&t which owns satellite service directv, the largest distributor of subscription television with time warner that owns cnn, h
7:16 am
could make rivals less competitive. but what's surprising about the doj blocking it is historically deals like this where the companies are complimentary but they don't overlap get approved. many in the u.s. have publicly spoken out against the deal including president trump who was rallying against it on the campaign trail. >> at&t is buying time warner and thus cnn, a deal we will not approve in my administration because it's too much concentration of power in the hands of too few. >> reporter: now, the doj denied any political influence and their suit barely mentions cnn but at&t's ceo hinted that he's not so sure. he insisted his company would not part with cnn to secure approval for the deal. any agreement forfeiting cnn directly or nondirectly is a n nonstarter, he said. >> he's not backing down. he said really he's willing to sue. >> they expect to win, he is ready to sue. >> all right. we'll keep our eyen
7:17 am
yeah. >> it does seem like there was some influence there. >> a big part of the trial. they'll try to discover whether there was any contact between the white house and the justice department. >> because they're not supposed to have any say in this. >> all right, rebecca, thank you. now to that desperate search for that submarine that disappeared six days ago with 44 members on board. linzie janis is in argentina as rescue crews race against time and, linzie, the navy now says what they thought were leads may have been false hope. >> reporter: good morning, robin. that's right. an argentine navy rescue ship said they detected sounds coming from under the water and that raised hopes here at the port where the "ara san juan" is based but the navy determining they were not coming from the missing submarine. as you can see it is finally a beautiful day and we spoke with naval command and conditions out in the search area are much better today. have a look at the treacherous conditions they've been dealing with several days. 25-foot seas, hampering this search.
7:18 am
including argentina's first ever female submarine officer, ileana maria saying her dream is become the first submarine commander. the "ara san juan" has not been heard from in six days since it reported an electrical fault. the race is on to get to these submariners in case they are running out of oxygen. >> race against time. all right, linzie, thank you. back to ginger. a lot of cold air moving across the country. >> serious holiday chill in the northern plain, minneapolis feels like 15 this morning. as far as dalton, georgia, it'll be coal and feel subfreezing in nashville, 2 of the windchill tomorrow.

7:34 am
affair or extramarital affair, so this is not over yet. it may just be the beginning. >> every day seems to be some shocking news. >> joining us is our chief legal correspondent dan abrams and ronan farrow contributor with the "new yorker" magazine. where do we possibly begin? let's start with charlie rose. >> look, charlie rose was a person we all knew and interabilitied with. i think all of this table, these were rumors that were whispered that certainly i had heard about. that's not the same thing as having it reportable and spending a lot of time getting it right as "the washington post" did but i do think it illustrates it's close to home. this is not republicans or democrats or the media world. in all of our societies and cultures and workplace. >> any kind of legal exposure for charlie have. >> you got to separate out civil from criminal, right? so a civil would mean sexual harassment. triple could mean an unwanted touching. people forget that sometimes. that reaches to the level of
7:35 am
washington post" story. probably not based on the timing of it and based on what the actions were. but that doesn't mean that more people aren't going to come forward. so if you're charlie rose right now, what you're worried about is additional people coming forward, additional information that in particular could make him potentially responsible civilly and, again, when you think about how little it tays to cross the line into an unwanted touching, all you need to do is make insure you have get it within the statute of limitations. >> i'm anything of his co-hosts, gayle king and norah to have to address that which they did on their program today and the things that they said about being straightforward with it. but also when -- i mean that report was so detailed and so disturbing in some of the allegations and part of it, ronan, was that it seemed that so many people knew about this. not maybe the extent of it, but they were aware. >> and this is the pattern, look, there is a variety of factors that create
7:36 am
silence around this issue in our society and for charlie rose it was sort of the collegial nature of our business, you know, kind of we talked about this in makeup rooms and rumors of it but didn't rise to the threshold. >> one of the things we did see, you saw in the charlie rose story his executive producer clearly knew about this, clearly had people -- that's a parallel with the harvey weinstein story is that at points it does take enablers inside. >> yeah, look, with the charlie rose story there was one particular person, right? there was an executive producer longtime of the show who apparently gotten a number of reports now expresses great regret for not having done more but it's never the case that these people can act alone, right? when you're -- we're talking a lot about people who do this se se serially and allegation after allegation after allegation a
7:37 am
>> a new one broke. one of the things you're cracking open, the harvey weinstein case are these n nondisclosure agreement, settlements that company often reach with the women who are leaving. >> the culture of silence isn't always just a culture. you know, from cosby to o'reilly and certainly in weinstein's case there were legal protections that allowed silence to continue. and what we have in this new story which is just going live now is that detailed rundown of the way in which harvey weinstein used nondisclosure agreements with huge payouts attached. sometimes up to a million dollars and with really draconian measures. >> to never talk about. >> never talk about it. in one case elaborate monitoring systems asking a woman to turn over social media password and every device to destroy all evidence of a crime. >> basic in any case. you see these all the time and a real movement now nationwide that's going after these kinds of agreements. >> and it's about who is paying for them as you point out. bob weinstein in a couple of cases and he is
7:38 am
he knew anything about it, we have documented that, he, in fact, underwrote two of those settlements in the -- >> is there any way to outlaw these? >> you can do anything, right? yeah, sure, you could create legislation which says that it is no longer valid in terms of a deal -- >> that's pending in a couple of state. >> it's going to be very tough to get it to pass for a variety of reasons. >> you just keep peeling back the onion more and more. dan, ronan, always good to see you there. you can see ronan's full story on the new yorker website this morning. thank you for being here. coming up as you travel for the holidays we have the insider tips. we're going live inside the social media center for a major airline. we're going to tell you how you get their attention when you're facing travel trouble.

she was so excited and eager to submit her answer and then for the next 18 days every day she would say, mom, i haven't heard back from "the new york times" and i was trying to be the encouraging reassuring mom and say, well, you know, i'm sure they're just reading through a lot of submissions but inside my head i was thinking, yeah, don't hold your breath because it's "the new york times" so when she called me and she got the e-mail that she got the job i really was speechless and also not really surprised because harper is a pretty amazing kid and i'm glad that she gets to share her gift. >> yes. let's try out some advice on her, okay. we asked our audience to send in questions and the first came from isabella. she's 9 in third grade. >> hi, harper, here's my problem. one of my friends is being mean to another one of my friends. how do i stop her and stay friends with them both? >> it's a good question.
8:34 am
>> okay, i think the thing that's important to remember here is that you can be friends with both of them. but they don't have to be friends with each other. i think that that's the important thing to remember here and the next time one of them is being mean to the other one, just remind them not to get frustrated with each other and maybe yusz to take a break. >> ah, good advice there. good advice there, harper. [ applause ] so it's wonderful to see your mom juice beaming with pride sitting next to you so what does the future hold for you, harper? that question, what do you want to be when you grow up? >> well, i definitely want to do something in acting or in theater. it's on my bucket list to be on broadway. at least one show. hopefully that would turn into a career but if not i would like to do
8:35 am
