7:06 am
>> nancy, thank you, we spoke to john dickerson good morning. >> good morning, anthony. >> we heard eight hours of testimony, four legal scholars. on the one hand we had one saying if this isn't impeachable, nothing is, another saying there's nothing impeachable here. where are we? >> well, we're kind of where we are and where everything is in washington now where basically where you sit depends on where you previously stood. and the process has to go, you know, a lot longer, further. what yesterday was was an attempt actually to step back from washington's normal partisan polarization and say when they built the standard for the office in the summer of 1787, what were they trying to do? and is this president living up to that standard, or has he fallen short? but you can't step back in washington. >> you go back to the constitution, though, john, this question really isn't that complicated, is it? after all of this testimony yesterday -- >> it's at the absolute center of the presidency. what's the question at stake
7:07 am
here? did the president use his powers of office for himself and not his country? when they created the constitution, they sat george washington at the front of the room as a model for building the presidency. why? because twice in his career he'd given up power and not done the thing for himself but protected the republic. they said that's what we want in a president. he both did it when he gave up his commission as commander of the continental army and also when his soldiers tried to stage a coup against the government. washington heard about the coup and said, "how dare you, don't you do that, you must protect the republic." that was the model for the office. that's at question here. did the president do something for himself with the powers he's been given. it's at the center of the presidency. >> impeachment is always going to be political. it's an inherently political process. this feels particularly partisan. what's the message to americans tuning in who think it's just a partisan mud fight? >> yeah. >> a, you're right. and -- and -- but b, let it breathe. you know, let the process go forward. it's going to be messy because
7:08 am
it was messy when democrats were the ones, when it was a democratic president who was in the hot seat. it's now going to be messy when it's a republican one. but -- yet this is why yesterday was important. what's the standard for the office? did this president fall short? and then if he fell short, wh's? >> the president and his legal team so far have refused to participate in the inquiry. can they cry foul if they are refusing to participate? >> well, i mean, in politics, they can, right. >> do they have a legit gripe? if they're not going to participate. >> that's right. one of the weaknesses in the president's case is the president is saying not only did i do nothing wrong, it was perfect. his defenders in congress don't start with that as their argument but complain about the process, it implicitly undermines the president's argument. if you were in a trial and you weren't even in town when the crime you're accused of happened, you'd want your defense attorney to say "he wasn't even in town." when they complain about the process and don't use the president's argument which is what i did was perfect it undermines the president's case. >> what happens now? i mean, i think people are
7:09 am
looking at it, their heads are about to pop off because nothing seems to change. >> you wouldn't expect it to. it takes time. and so what happens is you have, you know, you'll go now to the question of articles of impeachment, and then presumably based on what we think because democrats are in control of the house, it will move into the senate. and then you'll is an actual trial and some of these questions about whether the president did what's alleged will actually be adjudicated. >> as nancy cordes reported, january is clear on the senate calendar. they're expected to have a trial. >> yes. and republicans will be running things. by the way, we've got a public that's dealing with the end of the year holidays and all of that going on. >> yes. >> that's something for democrats -- >> in an election campaign -- >> and we've got an election campaign. >> all right, john. thank you so much. moving on to 2020, one day
7:10 am
the navy says they shot three defense department employees yesterday and then killed himself, the motive is unclear. two of the workers died and the other is in the hospital. jonathan is right outside of the hospital. >> we're right outside of an entrance to the dock where the shooting took place. and they're trying to figure out what it sounded like. were less than half a mile away. a memorial was put on lock down, and visitors were told to shelter in place. >>. >> is it real, is it fake type thing. >> a shooter in his navy uniform
7:11 am
shot and killed two ship ward workers before shooting and killing himself. >> he was deceased by an apparent self inflicted gunshot. it happened near dry dock two, and area where ships and submarines are repaired. a text went out warning of an active shooter situation and telling people to lock down where they were or find shelter. >> they're not letting us out. is there a shooter? >> the lock down was lifted and the scene secured. random.
7:12 am
>> we are two days away from the pearl harbor attack. >> still a lot of questions there, jonathan, thank you. one day after kamala harris ended her presidential campaign, candidate elizabeth warren said any democrat would have the california senator on a short list of potential running mates, and joe biden appears to agree. >> she's solid. she is -- she could be president someday herself, she could be vice president, she could go on to be a supreme court justice. she could be attorney general. i mean, she has enormous capability. >> campaigning in iowa, biden was asked about any hard feelings from the first democratic debate. you'll recall when harris
7:13 am
confronted him on racial issues and biden said, quote, i'm not very good at keeping hard feelings. more news on "20/20," the first interview with former new york mayor michael bloomberg since he joined the democratic presidential race. gayle will join him in aurora, colorado. >> getting on a plane. >> visit the memorial for the shooting victims at the movie theater there. a big issue finish bloomberg. >> yes, he's going to announce his gun violence plan. we'll get to ask for the first time, why are you getting in now, this way? should be -- i'm looking forward to it. in other news, the ride-share giant, that's lyft, is defending its commitment to safety after 19 women allege they were sexually harassed, abused, or raped by lyft drivers. a lawsuit filed yesterday said the company's response to the sexual predator crisis amongst lyft drivers has been appallingly inadequate. this comes just three months after a similar lawsuit by 14 other women. jamie yuccas is in los angeles
7:14 am
with more on the story. jamie, good morning to you it. what are the allegations? because it's all very disturbing. >> reporter: good morning. many women in this new lawsuit say the incidents happened at night after they decided to take a lyft because they had been drinking. they believed they were making a safe choice, but instead ended up fearing for their lives. >> during the rape i immediately froze and thought to myself that the lyft driver would kill me. >> reporter: one by one, women came forward wednesday detailing alleged incidents of sexual assault by lyft drivers. >> the next thing i knew, the driver was on top of me trying to put his tongue in my mouth. >> reporter: a new lawsuit alleges that at least as early as 2015 lyft became aware that lyft drivers were sexually assaulting and raping female customers and failed to adopt and implement reasonable driver monitoring procedures designed to protect the safety of its passengers. one alleged victim tells cbs news she fell asleep in her
7:15 am
lyft, and her driver assaulted her. >> that's what i'll never forget. my fear and like, you know, having to makethat sudden decision like how am i going to get myself out of this. >> reporter: in a statement, lyft says what these women describe is something no one should ever have to endure. "we recognize these risks which is why we are relentless in our work to build safety into every aspect of our work." the company says it has launched more than 15 new safety features including daily background checks for all drivers, and in-app emergency assistance for passengers. but lawyers allege eight of the plaintiffs in the latest lawsuit were assaulted since those measures were implemented. >> what lyft has to do is they have to make all rides digitally recorded. if an employee knows that their employer's watching them, they're not going to be committing crimes in the car. >> reporter: the women are suing for unspecified damages. as for lyft, it says it's partnering with the nation's largest anti-sexual violence
7:16 am
organization called r.a.i.n. as part a sexual violence prevention education program. anthony? >> jamie, thank you. president trump's promise of a southern border wall is beginning to take shape in texas. cbs news got exclusive access to this construction site in donna where an eight-mile stretch of wall cost being $167 million is being built. mireya villarreal real is there. is this evidence the president is keeping his promise? >> reporter: you know, take a look, there is the old wall that was built during the bush administration. if we walk about 20 feet over here, there is new construction, and i promise it is there behind all of that fog. as you mentioned, this was a big campaign promise for president trump. however, this wall is not going to stretch all along the southern border, and it is already facing some legal fights from local landowners.
7:17 am
what's the reality of illegal drug smuggling here, especially in south texas? >> the reality is it's all around you. >> reporter: border patrol sector chief rudy karisch is overseeing this new eight-mile stretch of border wall in the rg valley just a half mile from the river. the goal -- to stop illegal human and drug smuggling. >> this administration has made it clear they want to help us by giving us the tools that we need to be more effective. >> reporter: is the wall the answer to everything? >> no, of course not. it can never be. a wall is not going to make an arrest. however, if you have piece of tactical infrastructure in place, maybe that person's going to decide i'm not going to cross in this location. i'm going to go somewhere else. >> reporter: nine projects are funded in the valley for 109 miles of new wall, part of a larger almost $10 billion government effort to reinforce the border. but it's not quite the concrete wall the president promised on the campaign trail in 2016. >> no windows, no nothing. precast concrete, going very high. >> reporter: the only concrete is on the bottom to keep floodwaters away from local
7:18 am
landowners. as the president continues to boast about the wall's effectiveness and impending completion, there are still apparent cracks in the process. the social media video shows two men recently scaling a portion of refurbished wall in california. >> the united states government's abusing us. >> reporter: landowners are also feeling the pressure. rey cavazos and his family have owned about 69 acres of land along the border for generations. they worry the government will take their property next. to them, the wall is a waste of money. how long do you fight? >> we're going to fight as long as it takes. we know that it's very difficult to fight the government, but we're going to hang in there as long as we can. >> reporter: this project is set to be done in january of 2021. this is a very active area for illegal activity. border patrol agencies telling us grounds sensors went off not far from here this morning. -- the chief telling me he wants all of the projects done by the end of next year. >> thank you so much.

this morning we're exploring a project to bring back an icon. american forests. more than a century ago, nearly four billion american chestnut trees grew in the eastern u.s., dominating forests from maine to florida. wood logged from the massive trees helped build the country and was used in everything from homes to railroad ties. its famous chestnuts fed animals and people. about a century ago, disease wiped out virtually all the trees. chip reid visited a virginia farm to learn how an ambitious program is trying to restore the once mighty chestnut. >> reporter: the american chestnut tree was once an american icon, a national symbol of strength and a cornerstone of the appalachian economy. today it is functionally extinct. >> every year it produced
