"cbs this morning saturday cohost michelle miller is with us. as you wake up in the west we have breaking news from the white house. labor secretary alex acosta told president trump this morning that he is resigning less than 48 hours after telling reporters he would not step down. democrats pressured acosta to quit after the arrest of sex abuse suspect jeffrey epstein nearly a week ago on sex trafficking charges. in 2008 as a u.s. attorney in miami, acosta personally negotiated and approved app secret, controversial plea agreement dropping similar federal charges against the financeer accused of abusing dozens of under age teenage girls. we'll bring you the president's remarks on acosta's resignation as soon as we get them.
7:04 am
singer r. kelly is back in custody this time facing federal sex crime charges. nypd dietze and homeland security agents arrested kelly last night in chicago. he was indicted earlier in the day by two federal courts, the northern district of illinois based in chicago, and the eastern district of new york based in brooklyn. >> the 13-count indictment in chicago accuses kelly of charges related to child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice. charges in brooklyn have just been revealed. national correspondent jericka duncan has been covering the allegations of abuse by r. kelly which he strongly denies. what do we know? >> this is the first time r. kelly is facing federal charges. federal prosecutors in new york as you mentioned just announced those charges that include racketeering and transportation for prostitution.
7:05 am
>> reporter: for the second time this year r & b singer r. kelly was arrested in chicago on sex crime charges. federal agents took the three-time grammy winner into custody. sources say it happened while he was walking his dog in front of his trump tower apartment thursday night. >> you have to be prepared for more charges even if y innocent. >> reporter: kelly's crisis manager darrell johnson says the singer's team was expecting federal charges and they are ready to fight them. >> so a lot of fans, a lot of people praying for him and wishing him the best. the best outcome is him to be out. that's what we are hoping. >> reporter: kelly had already been charged with a number of sex related crimes this year. >> the new indictment alleges additional counts. >> reporter: just six weeks ago he pleaded not guilty to 11 of those charges in chicago, four of which carry up to 30 years in prison each if convicted. in an explosive interview with gayle king in march, kelly insisted he had done nothing wrong and denied allegations he
7:06 am
abused women. >> well, how stupid would that be for r. kelly with all i been through in my way, way past, to hold somebody -- let alone four or five, six, 50 you said -- how stupid would i be to do that? is this camera on me? >> yes. it's on. >> that's stupid. use your common sense. >> eporter: the singer denied allegations of sexual misconduct for decades and was acquitted on state child pornography charges in 2008. r. kelly has pled not guilty to all previous charges against him. it is unclear whether the new federal charges like the obstruction of justice charge are related to the previous ones. his attorney just released a statement saying, a bail hearing will be held early next week, and that his office had no further comment. >> cbs news legal analyst rikki klieman is with us. good morning. >> good morning.
7:07 am
>> how serious are the new charges? >>hearehel ibil nnl sex traffickiner lookingat ten the t we're also dealing with the possibility, i want to underline that, of a federal rico charge in new york. if that should come to pass we're really looking at life. now he isn't facing years. he's facing decades. >> decades. that is the difference between the state and the feds? >> he was facing about 30 years in the state but that didn't necessarily mean he was going to get it. when you look at two federal jurisdictions, the northern district of illinois located in chicago, the eastern district of new york located in brooklyn, this time nobody is kidding around. >> why are the feds involved? >> i would guess, and i can only guess, that the feds are involved for two reasons. number one, if the eastern district of new york is involved, like the southern district, they don't do things unless they are really locked, loaded, ready. probably
7:08 am
main justice in washington has really put a priority on the issue of sex trafficking. i think we can see that this week with statement from the head of the fbi in new york that sex trafficking is in fact something that they are not letting go of. they are serious in new york. so now we have to have a nexus in new york. did he transport a woman to new york? did he film a woman in new york? did he make some phone calls out of new york? there must be a nexus. but this time they really may think that chicago state's attorney has moved too slowly and that they are not going to take what they believe is a serial predator and let him take his time. the real question is detention. >> a lot of people saying, it only took two decades for him to be brought to justice. >> well, we're in the same story twice in one week. >> we are.
7:09 am
>> thank you, rikki klieman. louisiana has less than 24 hours left to prepare for tropical storm barry landfall. it is expected to cause widespread and severe flooding. chief weather forecaster lonnie quinn of our new york station wcbs tv is tracking the latest developments. what do you see as the storm moves closer? >> i see the storm as a big water maker, a lot of rain, storm surge as well. it isn't impressive on the radar image. kind of ragged looking. you only have winds at 50 miles per hour so a mid grade tropical storm. is it getting stronger or weaker? if it can pull in some of the dry air it would weaken the storm but it has closed the door on that. it will get stronger. the national hurricane center says maybe a low grade hurricane. hurricane warnings right now up for the louisiana coast line. the official track and intensity forecast has it as a tropical storm, a strong one as it comes onshore sometime tomorrow. 70-mile-per-hour winds. 74 would be a hurricane. i think the bigger story is the rain and it goes well inland.
7:10 am
tupelo, mississippi way inland could see 9 inches of rain. the bulls eye shows you 2 feet of rain well to the west of new orleans. look at the possibilities. here are the different tracks. one cluster well to the west of new orleans another cluster closer to new orleans. if it shifts and takes the cluster closer to new orleans take a look at this. now you put two feet of rain just outside of new orleans. that is too much rain for new orleans. we have to watch this very carefully. landfall i think probably sometime tomorrow. about 10,000 people along the louisiana coast have been ordered to evacuate. president trump declared a federal emergency for the state last night. "cbs this morning" national correspondent david camardelle, what are conditions now? >> it is rainy. we are at the tip of louisiana. if you walk off here you are swimming in the gulf of mexico. grand isle is a town in the
7:11 am
middle of the gulf of mexico. they have hit really hard by coastal erosion. the mayor is worried about what this could do. he has ordered a mandatory evacuation and i just talked to him ten minutes ago. >> when it comes in from the north side of the island or the back side of the island it can cause severe flooding. >> reporter: that would put the only road in and out of this island under water. >> yes, sir. >> reporter: there are 1400 residents living in grand isle and mayor david camardelle says some are not leaving. what will you tell them? >> right now the way i look at the tide as we speak this morning probably too late to get off the island. >> everyone is taking the threat very seriously. >> reporter: louisianians in low-lying areas are bracing as the season's first expected hurricane looms. >> hopefully, you know, we'll survive this one. >> reporter: people are tying up boats, stocking up on supplies. prepping stand bags. >> you got to be prepared. >> reporter: and getting out.
7:12 am
>> any time there is a disturbance it always disturbs me. >> reporter: for those who are choosing to stay behind -- >> help people that need help, ride it out, party it out. >> staying for it. holding down the fort. >> reporter: more than 200 floodgates are now closed surrounding new orleans. all eyes are on those levees which were improved following hurricane katrina, which devastated new orleans. >> in between two major bodies of water. the only thing protecting us is two levees. one of them failed already. >> reporter: with all the rain the mississippi river is expected to crest at 19 feet just a foot below the top of the levees. >> obviously conditions can change and residents should stay vigilant and prepared, should any changes occur. >> reporter: back here in grand isle, they will be the first to get hit. there are the levees behind me which protect the gulf of mexico side. grand isle sits eight feet below sea level so the mayor says they'll definitely have flood water. there are 25 pumps here,
7:13 am
anthony, but you know where else there are pumps? the city of new orleans. i talked to a woman in new york yesterday heading here. she said we couldn't handle a rain shower this week. that flooded our city. how is new orleans going to deal with a storm like this given the fact that the pumps are not consistently reliable? >> we sure hope for the best, david. thank you. today vice president mike pence will travel to the u.s./mexico border to tour a migrant detention facility. he says migrants are receiving care that americans would be proud of despite a government watch dog report of turmoil. the trip comes as roundups could deport thousands of undocumented immigrants, starting this weekend. mireya villarreal is at the facility where pence is going. what is he trying to achieve there? >> reporter: vice president mike pence will be here in south texas for less than six hours. he is actually going to visit the facility you see behind me and this visit is all in an effort to disprove the
7:14 am
conditions that were described by democrats recently. they called the conditions inside awful, and he is saying those descriptions are inaccurate. meanwhile, the trump administration is now setting its sights on removing illegal migrants here in the u.s. despite local leaders saying they will not comply. >> we're going to secure our border. >> reporter: on thursday vice president mike pence insisted agents inside detention facilities are keeping migrants safe. >> they're providing healthcare, shelter, food, sustenance, in a way that would make the american people proud. >> reporter: earlier this month a scathing report by the office of the inspector general detailing squalid conditions in border patrol facilities, quoted one manager who called the situation a ticking time bomb. last week we spoke to 22-year-old lilliana and her 4-day-old baby after they were just released from one of the facilities. i was scared, she sailed.
7:15 am
there was no place to shower or have hot meals. >> this is a completely out of control situation. >> reporter: the chairman of the homeland security committee, senator ron johnson, says agents are doing everything they can to keep families safe in overwhelming conditions. >> border patrol facilities were never designed for families and certainly not for this size of illegal flow. >> reporter: pence's visit comes as the trump administration also moves to conduct raids in at least ten cities to round up at least
7:16 am
>> thank you, mr. president. over the last week i've seen a lot of coverage in the department of labor and what i have not seen is the incredible job creation we've seen in this economy, more than 5 million
7:17 am
jobs. work place injuries are down bucking a three-year trend. work place more talts are down bucking a three-year trend. we've had the safest year ever with the lowest number of fatalities ever in mining. i have seen coverage of this case that is over 12 years old that had input and vetting at multiple levels of the department of justice. as i look forward i do not think it is right and fair for this administration's labor department to have epstein as the focus rather than the incredible economy we have today. so i called the president this morning. i told him i thought the right thing was to step aside. cabinet positions are temporary trusts. it would be selfish for me to stay in this position and continue to talk about a case that's 12 years old rather than about the amazing economy we have right now.
7:18 am
so i submitted my resignation to the president effective seven days from today, effective one week from today, earlier this morning. >> there is no need at all as far as i am concerned. i watched alex yesterday and i thought alex did a great job. you know, you can always second guess people and you can say he should have been tougher. they do it with me all the time. i make a great deal with anybody and then they say, like the democrats, oh, it could have been better. >> paula, just two days ago mr. acosta said he would not resign. what changed? >> reporter: well, it appears he was not able to continue fostering that good will from the president. it was just a few days ago when the president seemed to extend a lot of good will to the secretary suggesting that lots of lawyers and judges look back on decisions they made 12, 15 years ago and wish they had done
7:19 am
things differently and then acosta had the press conference where he tried to defend this controversial plea deal that a federal judge said violated the rights of the victims of mr. epstein. it went on for quite some time. we heard nothing from the president after that. here even though the president said that acosta has done a fine job in his position as secretary, it appears the president is willing ultimately to accept this resignation in the hope that this distraction goes away. >> yes. mr. acosta defending his time at the department of labor. but this was really about the plea deal as you said, paula, which was made around 2008 which mr. acosta personally negotiated and approved. as you pointed out, was ultimately declared illegal in february of this year because the victims were never notified about this secret deal in which mr. epstein served just 13 months in county jail. he was forced to register as a sex offender but he was able to leave jail six days a week for 12 hours a day and of course this kind of all came up this
7:20 am
week because federal prosecutors in new york unsealed a new criminal indictment monday charging epstein with having operated a sex trafficking ring in which he sexually abused dozens of under age girls some as young as 14 years old. paula, the president, himself, had a personal relationship with jeffrey epstein. did he talk about that at all this morning? >> he did. not willingly though, anthony. we had to follow up a few times and really pressed him. why did you have a falling out with mr. epstein? first he said the reason didn't matter. he said he had never been a fan of him. but in fact in 2002 the president told "new york magazine he thought mr. epstein was a, quote, terrific guy. at that time the president even acknowledged mr. epstein's preference for, quote, younger women. we really pressed him and i asked him, sir, it does matter why you had this falling out. he seemed to confirm reports from folks who have written books on mr. epstein that the falling out was related to epstein harassing some young women at mar-a-lago. anthony, it is unusual that the
7:21 am
president wouldn't confirm that prior to today. >> once again our headline this morning, labor secretary alex acosta has resigned under pressure and appearing with the president at the white house. ou our 24-hour network at or on our cbs news app. much more to come on your local news on this cbs station and tonight on the cbs evening news. many of you will return now to "cbs this morning." this has been a cbs news special report. i'm anthony mason in new york. for news 24 hours a day goh for news 24 hours a day goh to c baby let's ride. ♪ we got nothing but time. ♪ you get all the reaction. ♪ you're the main attraction. jeep grand cherokee. freedom to do it all.

7:32 am
official suspect. it's a dank, nazi bunker from world war ii where they discovered suzanne eaton's body. look how far that goes down there. greek police told cbs news the american biologist was suffocated to death. this place can only be described as a kind of underground maze, a complex of tunnels, and local officials have told us that they believe suzanne eaton was killed elsewhere and her body was placed or dumped inside this complex of bunkers. the forensic pathologist who carried out the post mortem told us her death was far from quick. there are reports in the greek media she had knife wounds, she may have been tortured. can you comment on that? >> we can't comment on that right now. >> reporter: had she been sexually assaulted? >> i can't comment right now. maybe we can find dna.

mediation. you are invited. i'm anthony mason with tony dokoupil. gayle is off. "cbs this morning: saturday" co-host michelle miller is with us. we have breaking news from washington. embattled labor secretary alex acosta says he will resign after days of krit sichlt for the way he handled the jeffery epstein sex crimes plea deal back in 2008. acosta made the surprise announcement this morning outside the white house accompanied by president trump. >> i called the president this morning. i told him that i thought the right thing was to step aside. you know, cabinet positions are temporary. it would be selfish for me to stay in this position and continue talking about a case that's 12 years old rather than about the amazing economy we have right now. >> paula reid is at the white house. when was this decided? >> reporter: it's unclear exactly when the president
8:03 am
accepted this resignation. this announcement today was somewhat surprising because it comes a few days after the secretary healed a press conference to defend a 2008 plea deal he negotiated when he was the u.s. attorney in florida. that was related to allegations that jeffery epstein had abused young girls. a federal judge eventually ruled that that deal, that secretary acosta negotiated for jeffery epstein, violated the rights of his victims because they did not disclose that they were in negotiations for this deal. and again this was surprising because earlier this week the president signaled he would stand by the secretary. the president noted acosta did a great job in his position and emphasized that a lot of time had passed since he negotiated this plea deal. as you heard, the secretary said he did not want the epstein case to be a distraction from the administration's accomplishments. we pressed the president on his relationship with jeffery epstein. in 2002 the president told "new york" magazine he thought mr.
8:04 am
epstein was a, quote, terrific guy. earlier in the week the president alluded to falling out between him and mr. acceptsteep. now, even on the lawn earlier the president didn't seem to want to talk about it. he said it doesn't matter why we had this fight. i pressed him and eventually he confirmed that their falling out was related to epstein mistreating young women at his mar-a-lago club. >> you also had a chance to talk about the president about the upcoming mueller testimony. what did he say? >> reporter: that's right. we are learning from multiple sources the special counsel's much anticipated hearing next week could be pushed back a week, which would allow lawmakers additional time to question the now former special council. i asked the president what he hoped robert mueller would tell congress. he wouldn't say. i peered clearly agitated that they were, quote, getting another bite at the apple. >> paula reid at the white house. thanks. the first big storm of the

atlantic hurricane season has louisiana in its sights. tropical storm barry will make landfall tomorrow morning and will be a hurricane by then. forecasters predict it will pass very close to the state capital, baton rouge, dumping two feet or more of rain on some areas. >> for now first on "cbs this morning" 2020 presidential candidate senator amy klobuchar is revealing a comprehensive new proposal to help older americans and their families. the minnesota democrat's plan assists people with alzheimer's and other chronic medical conditions and calls for strengthening medicare and social security, reducing drug costs, creating personal savings accounts to help americans save for retirement and ensuring paid family leave for all. amy klobuchar is with us as part of the continuing series ""the road to 2020." thanks for being here. for politics is personal in part, but this plan feels a little more personal than most for you because your father had struggled with alzheimer's.
8:06 am
how did that impact how you put it together? >> one of the things you realize when you have someone in your family, for me my dad is 91. thankfully, it didn't hit him until later. but you see them growing more and more distant not in the heart, but in the mind. and you realize sometimes they may not even quite know who you are, and that's a hard moment when that happens. well, i'm not alone. there are 14 million people right now who have someone with alzheimer's in their family. 14 million people have alzheimer's. and we are not really getting ready for this. we are going to see even more and more of it, and to me it is, of course, about getting a cure and treatment. that's a lot in this plan, about getting us there by 2025 and investing. it's also about the caregivers. they may be a husband or a wife or they may be a daughter or a son, but they are heroe they are the ones that are there every single day, especially when the people are at home. it's helping them get tax credits to help them do their
8:07 am
work. >> alzheimer's is the most expensive disease. a disease in america costing more than cancer and heart disease, $290 billion. that's just part of your plan. talk about what else is in there. and how are you going to pay for it. >> the pay for it is interesting. this plan is about seniors, right. about keeping medicare and social security strong and being able to push on the drug companies because prescription drugs, drugs have gone up multiple times in the last few years. but paying for it is interesting. you have heard about how the wealthiest people set up trust funds for their kids. i'm not talking about charitable trusts. i'm talking about things that people set up for their kids. then they don't pay taxes on the money that they make on the trust when they go to their kids, and don conservative estimates are that it would bring in at least $200 billion if you started putting that at a
8:08 am
normal tax rate. whether it's the capital gains rate, you could even change that. that brings in a lot of money that i think worth better spent on the rest of the people in this country that need help with retirement or need help to take care of a family member with alzheimer's. >> your plan calls for also improving mental health for seniors. how are you going to address that? >> you have seniors who feel very isolated. we have seen a 30% increase in suicides in this country in our entire population. so when you hear these stories at home, they are not just stories. that is making sure inthose peoe in communities, they have people to go to. the communities are aware, especially with people with alzheimer's. there is a lot of work being done right now by the alzheimer's association, and i have seen communities in my own state wihere they are training at coffee shops, when someone r- comes in and they have alzheimer's, they seem to have memory problems, this is how you work with them because there is going to be a lot of people out
8:09 am
in the community. there are things we can do that don't even cost money as a country to be able to deal with this. >> a story has been dominating the headlines out of greacongre this week. a rift between nancy pelosi and some younger congresswomen in her party, in your party. nancy pelosi scolded them, is the term i would use, for some tweets. this fighting, do you think pelosi was right to call out the tweets? do you think this is going to go away? >> i have enough politics in the presidential race. but what i do think, first of all, nancy pelosi is a very strong leader and she has a big party to unite and a big group of people over there in the house. the second thing to remember is we always are g toave the democratic re party with different ideas. it's a lot different than the republicans right now who seem to have donald trump say how high can you jump to keep them happy. yeah, we have differences. what unites us is much
8:10 am
you need to be, iould say, to the election, like we did in 2018, we will have someone leading the ticket. i would like it to be me. i am someone that believes we need to have a presidential candidate that doesn't just unite our party, but is it in to win in november. i ahave won in red districts an districts that donald trump won by over 20 points. i think you need to build that coalition. i am not going to make all these promises that a bunch of other people have made because i think you make one important promise that you are going to govern with integrity. i think ma the american people have seen broken promises from donald trump now for years, and they are ready for someone who can lead. it is about leading. and that is my message to the american people as we go forward in this campaign. >> i want to go back to health care for a second. a federal appeals court appeared sympathetic to arguments that the affordable care act is unconstitutional. do you think we need a
8:11 am
constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to health care? >> if we had the political environment where we could pass something like that, that would be good because i see health care as a right and not a privilege. but right now my focus is on, one, protecting the affordable care act so that people can't get thrown off of their insurance, which would be devastati devastating for so many people in this country if they have any pre-existing conditions. two, building on it by doing more about the pharmaceutical crisis, taking them on, allowing seniors to negotiate medicare prices, bringing in less expensive drugs from other countries. i lead those bills. and then the second thing, the last thing i would say is that we need to bring down the cost of premiums. and if the trump administration is going to keep trying to take those things away from people, we are going to fight back. >> senator klobuchar, thank you for being here. the u.s. women's soccer team s

8:19 am
their careers. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here. jill, good morning. originally that number was something like dollar. now 49 cents on the dollar. what is the problem? >> just an interesting thing about that study because we always usually hear the 20% number. there is a 20% wage disparity, and when we want to look at the 15-year time horizon, why? because that accounts for when people leave the labor force. men and women. it just so happens that women tend to leave the labor force to take care of kids, take care of their aging parents, and the time out really does hurt them. we saw goldman sachs study that found when women take five years out, which is kind of the average when you think about both your kids and your parents, they take five years out of their careers, it really dings their earnings. they have a 20% reduction of their lifetime earnings, and yet they are only out of the labor force for 12.5%.

8:34 am
why does it lead to creativity? >> yes. it's interesting, boredom is our brain's way of searching for an interesting stimulating activity. if we can't find it in the external environment, we are going to create it. and i think of creativity as a space between boredom on one hand, which is a lack of stimulation, and anxiety, which might be overstimulation. this is such an important trait. there was a study done in 2010 looking at 1,500 ceos from across the world and they found that creativity was the number one important leadership quality. and my fear is that now we live in a work warrior culture and we are promoting productivity at the expense of creativity. we are finding that iqs a increasing, creativity kwo shents are decreasing. >> boredom has a negative connotation. are we using the right word here? >> no. boredom is absolutely necessary. there is a part of our brain called the default network. even though it's not actively engaged when we are doing

8:36 am
>> right. >> gross. >> everybody gets upset waiting in line for them. >> you are saying we should plan down time? >> absolutely. yes. it's important to not have every minute of your day structured. bosses think if you can account for your time, that somebody -- magical things are happening. that's not the case. another thing, don't have as many meetings. most people are checked out. scheduling a meeting at length is the way to go. >> unless they are boring meetings. >> yeah. >> that's a different kind of boredom. >> embracing boredom is a good thing? >> yes. getting addicted, talking about smartphones, our brain is flooded with dopamine and then we end up becoming desensitized, needing more stimulation to get away from the boredom. >> your brain isn't really allowed to wander in the same kind of way than when you are letting your mind float. >> exactly. >> it's distracted but unsatisfied. >> exactly. >> boredom as well, anthony. >> that's the hard thing for me. i'll work on it. >> yeah, work on it.
