and public enemy number one. why the body of john dillinger, the depression-era gangster, is about to go dug up 85 years after the fbi gunned him down. it's july 31st, 2019. here's your world in 90 seconds. >> it will finally include dental care, hearing aids, and eyeglasses. >> you don't know that. >> i do know. i wrote the damn bill. >> democrats get heated over health care. >> i don't understand why people go to all the trouble of running for president of the united states just to talk about what we really can't do and shouldn't fight for. >> less than a week after another missile launch, south korea said north korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles. president trump is standing by his selection for director of national intelligence. >> we need somebody strong. the intelligence agencies have run amok. a deadly shooting at a
7:02 am
walmart in mississippi. >> a former employee shot and killed two managers and hit a police officer. >> you just heard the guns. pop, pop, pop, pop, pop. they conspired with frisco pd to cover up the severity of a car crash. >> punches thrown. >> he just took on the entire pirates team. >> all that -- >> a journalist is neck deep in floodwaters. >> and all that matters. >> a lot of people noticed a line that elizabeth warren and amy klobuchar were dressed almost identically. >> i felt like at any moment they were about to go, oh, by the way, elizabeth, did you notice klobuchar totally stole your look? just saying. >> on "cbs this morning." >> then tim ryan took a swipe at i lot of heavyweights. >> i didn't say we couldn't get there until 2040, bernie. you didn't't have to yell. >> i'm not yelling, this is how
7:03 am
i sound when i whisper. it's like i tell my kids, twinkle, twinkle, little star, the billionaire class has gone too far. >> that was a good bernie impression. >> that was a very good one. that was a long nilt at the debates, almost three hours. >> my wife was on colbert last night and i was up with her. welcome to "cbs this morning." i'm tony dokoupil with anthony mason. gayle king is off, so michelle miller joins us. we're going to begin with the policy divide front and center in front of the entire nation. democratic candidates repeatedly argued that proposals from left wing democrats go too far and play into republicans' hands.
7:04 am
>> elizabeth warren and bernie sanders took turns defending their plans for everything from health care to immigration. ed o'keefe is in detroit. what stood out to you? >> reporter: they wanted conversations and last night they got it. conversations about immigration, health care, gun control ask ndw to pay for college. just because it was substantive doesn't mean it didn't get testy. >> this is an example of wish list economics. >> you can't just put a plan on the world and expect it to succeed. >> reporter: moderates desperate for attention came out swinging early, knowing this might be the only chance to challenge the liberal views of bernie sanders and elizabeth warren. >> i think democrats win when we run on real solutions, not impossible promises. whether we run on things that are workable, not fairy tale economics. >> but the two senators anticipated the attacks and hit back. >> i don't understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the united states justst to talk abt what we really can't do and
7:05 am
shouldn't fight for. >> medicare for all is comprehensive and covers all health care needs for senior citizens. it will finally include dental care, hearing aids and eyeglasses. >> but you don't know that, bernie. >> i do know, i wrote the damn bill. >> why do we have to be the party of taking something away from people? >> that's not the party. >> they're running on telling half the country that your health insurance is illegal. it says it right in the bill. >> let's be clear about this. we are the democrats. we are not about trying to take away health care from anyone. that's what the republicans are trying to do. >> the other democrats on stage also stopped short of sanders' and warren's calls for decriminalization of border crossers. >> if you want to come into country, you should at least ring the doorbell. >> we have a million wanting to come across the border right
7:06 am
now. if we give them free health care, we'll have multiple of them. >> the problem with the plan is they would way for wealthy kids, for wall street kids to go to college. >> we can expand programs and compel states to pick up more fortunate burden. >> the best thing you could do to stimulate the american economy is to get rid of this stat. >> bullt all agreed on the needo beat president trump. >> president trump is the ultimateliar. >> ultimately we have to beat donald trump. >> anyone on this stage tonight or tomorrow night would be a far better president. >> reporter: so folks were calling last night the motown showdown, maybe we call tonight's debate the detroit do-over. former vice president joe biden will be alongside kamala harris who surprised him last debate by going after him on civil rights. harris says shehe'll merely cal out differences when needed.
7:07 am
we'll see what happens. anthony? >> yes, we will, ed, thanks so much. major garrett is here. major, how do the progressive candidates, bernie and warren, handle the ferocity of moderates? >> that's what the democrats want. they kept the lane nice and wide and they told the so-called moderates, we disagree, we disagree aggressively and we're leading in the polls. you're probably not going to be at the next debate so we widened the progressive lane for us. they came in. many debates that i talked to in the debate came in tied for silver and they merged for silver. they didn't really take on each other at all. >> why is that, do you think, to keep the progression lane wide? they'll get at each other later, but there is a dispute in the party, we'll respond aggressively and we'll keep this lane wide. >> it almost looked as if they were running together. >> almost, but there is a
7:08 am
structural reality to where this race is. warren has been gradually moving up and taking support away from bernie sanders. so on a night when they're tied, it's better for elizabeth warren because she has built better infrastructure and has been moving in the polls that has come at sanders' detriment. so being tied with sanders is not necessarily good. one other thing, the guys were dressed progressively good. >> well said, well said. despite those progressive ideas, though, former governor hickenlooper pointed out that the green new deal and medicare for all in his view will fedex the election to donald trump. is he right? >> there is a huge view of the democratic party and it's the trump phenomenona. they say, look, president trump has pushed us to where we almost have a screenwriting going on.
7:09 am
the bigger and bolder you are, the more you might get people in the middle. you heard references to mondale. the professionals say no, the analog is gore and kerry. they didn't win. trump offered and they say no, we need to be equally as bold. maybe we don't get everything but we push hard. >> one thing they did not mention last night was joe biden. alluded to but not mentioned. >> generationally and are you fit for the time, that was an undercurrent. i would say if i'm joe biden watching last night, you better have better game than you brought the first time around. much better. you better understand that there is a passionate desire for specificity and energy, and if you don't have either tonight, what you've seen in the last
7:10 am
month, which is your poll numbers declining slightly -- >> they ended up bouncing back. >> nationally. >> it's all about the states and the order they go in. biden, i think, needs a night tonight where he says to people, i know i'm here, i know what the mission is, i can carry it out. >> who would benefit from him not rising to the occasion? >> kamala harris and elizabeth warren. >> all right. major garrett, you heard it first from him. thank you. north korea fired two more missiles overnight, casting new doubt on president trump's push to denuclearize the korean peninsula. this is its second missile launch in less than a week. cbs news has learned the u.s. has little or no warning when north korea fires short-range missiles. ramy inocencio is in beijing. ramy, what do you know?
7:11 am
>> those missiles are similar to what they fired last thursday. they're fast, they're also tough missile system to follow and to destroy. as for those launched earlier today, those were launched from north korea's east coast and they went about 150 miles before falling into the ocean. next month the u.s. and north korea are planning joint drills. they see those as a precursor o and these missiles are the second since donald trump and kim jong-un met on denuclearization. and further increasing tensions, south korea said a new submarine that the north unveiled last week can carry three ballistic missiles and they will be deployed soon. north korea has promised it would not conduct nuclear tests or long-range missile tests, but
7:12 am
the short-range tests are a clear provocation. also looking ahead, secretary of state pompeo says there are no dates for any new talks planned at looking ahead. >> ramy inocencio, thanks. general john hyten is publicly denying allegations of a sexual assault from a colonel. daif david, were the allegations investigated? >> they certainly were. this was a criminal case in which air force investigators questioned 53 witnesses, examined nearly 200,000 emails and took a dna sample from general hyten. but in the end they could not come up with enough evidence to bring charges against him. his accuser was a one-time close aide, army colonel kathryn
7:13 am
spletstoser. as she watched the senate arms hearing from her office, her claims were vehemently denied by hyten. >> these allegations are false. nothing happened, ever. >> reporter: and by heather wilson who said a criminal investigation found no evidence to substantiate the allegation. >> general hyten was falsely accused. >> reprter: former air force pilot, now republican senator martha mcsally, herself a victim of sexual assault, said there was evidence not yet made public that convinced her hyten was telling the truth. >> to be clear, this wasn't just a jump ball, not a he said-she said, not a situation where we just couldn't prove what allegedly happened. the full truth was revealed in this process. the truth is that general hyten is innocent of these charges. >> reporter: senator joni ernst,
7:14 am
a veteran who said she was raped in college, did not question hyten's innocence but questioned his position as officer. after the hearings, spletstoser said she had once again been made the victim. >> what we saw in there today was a political spectacle done at the expense of an innocent victim. >> reporter: the armed services committee is expected to send hyten's name to the full senate, but a final vote is not likely until september. the current vice chairman of the joint chiefs retires today, so the number two job in the military will remain vacant for at least a month. michelle? >> thank you, david. a disgruntled employee involved in a deadly walmart shooting in mississippi now faces murder charges. police say martez abram shot and
7:15 am
killed two coworkers at walmart yesterday. a police officer was shot but was protected by a bullet-proof vest. abram was recently suspended after showing a knife to a worker. police say they believe 19-year-old santino legan acted alone when he opened fire sunday. three people were killed in the attack and more than a dozen others were hurt. jamie yuccas is in gilroy. jamie, what did police learn? >> reporter: well, vefinvestigas say the suspect was caught on surveillance video visiting several stores by himself ahead of sunday's attack. a newly released search warrant suggests he was preparing for a large-scale attack. in searching the suspect's nevada home monday, investigators say they found a bullet-proof vest, gas mask, gun and pamphlets. they found reading materials on radical islam and white supremacy. and according to one of his
7:16 am
brothers, the shooter was, quote, a loner. they found a gun in his car. that gun was purchased illegally in nevada. they are using photos of the shootings and talking to victims to better understand how the shooter moved through the crowd. relatives of a 13-year-old shooting victim, kayla salazar, gathered to remember her tuesday. one read a statement by her mother. >> we wanted to be here because we think it's important, but the community knows who kayla is and how important she was to us. she was our motivation. and we're in pain but we love her. >> reporter: the festival grounds here are still considered a crime scene. investigators say it could take up to five more days to finish processing evidence. police say they are currently combing through the suspect's phone and computer to better understand his mindset, but at this point they do not believe he was targeting people of
7:17 am
color. >> all right, jamie, thank you. jeffrey epstein is expected to appear in federal court in new york today. the disgraced financier is in jail awaiting trial. he is accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls, some as young as 14 years old. mola lenghi is at the correctional facility where he is being held. what can we expect today? >> reporter: today federal prosecutors are expected to talk about a trial date for jeffrey epstein. the 60-year-old pedophile is on round the clock, 24-hour suicide watch here at the facility after just last week he was found injured, disoriented and crying on the floor of his jail cell. that incident remains under investigation. the u.s. attorney's office tells me that that apparent suicide attempt could be brought up later in court today. earlier this month, epstein was charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy charges for the alleged sex abuse of underage
7:18 am
girls in the early to mid-2000s, charges that epstein pleaded not guilty to. federal judge berman later denied his million-dollar proposal, so he is expected to be jailed throughout his trial. we await nearly 2,000 pages of sealed documents from a civil case that could greatly expand the scope of this investigation. >> we've been awaiting the release of those documents for a while now. what exactly do we think is in them? >> reporter: that's something a lot of people are wondering. many questioned about what is in those documents. names, specifically, is what we're expecting to learn and how those names are linked, allegedly linked to jeffrey epstein, but the nature of those relationships, anthony, that is what remains unclear. >> all right, mola, thank you. upsetting new video shows the moment a semi truck slammed into a van of children headed to disney world. >> i remember closing my eyes and thinking, this is it, we're going to die.
7:19 am
>> for the first time we are hearing from a mother who was inside the van and lost her daughter. why she and good-looking temperature for this last day of july because they are right where they should be. if you take a look down at the south bay, san jose going to 82 and a full 10 degrees than that in oakland at 72. to be topped with a 66 in san francisco. 89 engineer 90 for inland location. the seven-day forecast shows us a little color for wednesday and friday we start a warm-up. we will be back with the mid- nineties this weekend.

8:05 am
chasm opened up in the party. it wasn't that evident in the first debate. there are two camps. one says it's got to be big, bold. the other says, whoa. >> one camp do you think is capable of beating donald trump and the other not? >> i see one more capable of winning primary contests basically with big ideas. that's what primary candidates like. i think there is a very good point. if the debate in the general election is about whether you get to keep your private health insurance, that's taking an issue that is a strength for the party and turning it into a vulnerableability. >> that was a warning shot fired by multiple moderate candidates last night. basically saying we lose if you do this? >> yeah. and i think we need to let this play out. we need to let people talk. i think both sides have a really good point. it's going to be up to the voters to choose. >> yeah. if you were managing one of these campaigns and the goal was to beat joe biden who is sitting atop of the polls, how would you do it? >> well, if last night is our
8:06 am
textbook, okay, two things. first of all, the structure of the debate hit the candidates off each other. so the format promotes conflict. >> it did definitely. >> and so candidates are going to go after biden probably. the question for biden, he has one or two coming after him, he can manage that. what if six candidates are coming after him? that's a lot to handle. >> right now he is way ahead. >> yeah. look, at some point people need to win states. we are very focused on these national polls which by the way are meaningless, and really iowa and new hampshire, we haven't been talking a lot about that. they are really important. they are the first contests. i'm looking at what candidates have the best operation on the ground and a message and, you know, a rationale for the candidacy that sustains and supports that. take warren. a great operation in iowa. when i was watching last night i was thinking if i were an iowa activist, i think there was a lot to rally around there. >> she has had momentum and major garrett suggested in the
8:07 am
first hour that essentially if you look at last night and bernie and warren kind of tied, in effect that's a loss for bernie. do you think that's so? >> yeah. it was interesting. i think they need some of what each other has. and warren definitely needs to take some away from bernie. they clearly made a decision individually, i assume, to not go after each other. at some point we may need them to engage. biden, too. harris tonight has got to win more african-american voters away from biden. we might see sparks fly. >> it seemed everyone got their shot in. who do you think will drop out, who will make it to the next legs? >> i think a lot of that is about money. a lot of these candidates to get on the debate stage are having to spend money to raise money. they are having to get a lot of donors. that can get very expensive. i think potentially in the early fall some people will have to face the music. other candidates have a nest
8:08 am
eg egg. they can probably stay through iowa. if you are not in the next debate because you don't have enough donors, how are you getting the lift to grow a campaign organization? >> crunch time is coming? >> yeah, i think it's coming. if you are not in the next debate, how do you get your message out? >> it's interesting. the two camps, you seem to suggest that the progressive camp can win in the primaries but not necessarily in the general. how do the democrats go forward with that kind of split? >> this is a classic tension in every single presidential race, right? >> it happened in 2016. >> it's what happened in 2012. we saw romney pushed to the right and so on. it was an issue in 2016. i think any of these candidates wi can win against trump. there are factors like the economy that are enormously important. i worry that we won the 2018 election on health care and on this tax bill. and if those things are flipped where we might raise people's taxes, where people's -- where
8:09 am
they are uncertain about what will happen with health insurance, that could be a problem. >> republicans are good at that spinning. they will see that weakness. >> absolutely. they always want to turn your strength into your weakness. >> buttigieg said last night they wi they will call us socialists no matter what. >> he is right. trying to predict the general election isn't the right thing. let's see who builds a sound campaign operation. i thought buttigieg had a good point. don't try to put artificial labels on people. let the voters argue this out amongst themselves and high turnout is a good thing. the more people that participate in the primary the more that electorate will look like the general electorate. >> back to question one. do you think they all have a chance to beat trump in 2020? >> let's be clear. you know, i don't like this game of trying to play general election -- >> quickly, are more people registering to vote?
8:10 am
>> yeah, we're seeing -- i mean, initial things -- initial data i have seen there is good registration. i think you will see that surge early next year. >> all right. very vigorous debate last night. thank you. a study shows binge drinking is a growing problem for older americans. we will

8:17 am
for men and four or more drinks at a time for women. the study found binge drinkers, 65 and older, were more likely to be men. they are also more likely to use tobacco or cannabis. researchers say the habit can be more dangerous for older people putting them at a risk of health problems. our doctor is here to tell us more. doc, i found this really interesting. 70% of hospitalized older persons and 50% of nursing home persons have alcohol related problems in general. why is binge drinking specifically affecting these older americans? >> well, when we think about binge drinking we think about younger adults or college students. this is, sin fact, a growing trend in older americans. it's been reported in sign tifg literature and the media. the problem is the alcohol has a very strong effect on people who are older. they are more vulnerable to the health problems than even a younger population. when you look at the percentages, as you mention,
8:18 am
currently around 10.6% of older americans are binge drinkers. in the previous decade it was anywhere from 7 to 9%. so that number is growing. also growing, increased alcohol use and any sort of harmful alcohol use. >> was it more dangerous for older americans? >> it can be. there's a couple of reasons why. they are more sensitive to the alcohol. they are at higher risk of getting impaired at the same level that might not impair somebody younger. many have chronic health problems. in fact, in this series 20 to 40% have things like diabetes, hypertension or cardiovascular disease. it can exacerbate those. it can develop new problems, pancreatitis, cancers. many are on prescription medications that might interfere. also, it increases the risk of injury or accidents in falls in people who might have issues with balance and coordination. >> and inflammation. >> and generalized inflammation. >> are there guidelines for binge drinking in older

i think it's important to be compassionate, loving, respectful to these older americans you feel have a problem. also you want to be proactive, so you want to address it. early intervention is essential. one of the things that can be helpful is seeking advice from a professional. it can really guide you towards what type of treatment they should be getting. interestingly, how to approach them. should it be a doctor that approaches them, a friend or family member. all of the recommendations really say, look, don't use the word alcoholic. don't talk to them while they may be intoxicated. wait until they are sober. be patient, be direct with them. >> it sounds like it's a thin line between those two things. >> it is. it is. you don't want to tre treat them like a child but with respect when you approach them. >> all right. thank you so much. a judge's decision will keep one of the fastest women athletes from defending her title. head how she vows to keep up her battle to compete without taking hormone therapy. you're watching "cbs this morning." caster plans to

>> if hard evidence exists, those parents who are fighting it all the way, if they go to trial and they are convicted, they are going to prison for a serious amount of time. >> for "cbs this morning," carter evans, los angeles. >> "vanity fair's" editor-in-chief joins us only on "cbs this morning" to share the magazine's new findings in this investigation. good morning. >> good morning. >> i think the most shocking thing in this article is that this white student on the application that was submitted was described as an african-american tennis player. she was neither african-american nor played tennis apparently. >> yes. >> when i read this, how do they expect this to work when she showed up on campus. >> no. it definitely seems like one o those acts in this whole web, this whole scandal. there are gray lines that get crossed and they become more and more preposterous as you go. this one hits the zenith. you know, thankfully in a way even for the girl and for her
8:36 am
family, the guidance counselor flagged it and said this can't be right. it was her red flag that caused georgetown to then look into its own tennis recruitment policies. that coach is now on leave. this was one of the strands that eventually played a role in cracking this case. >> but that student's father was never charged. that student eventually got into a really good college on her own merit. but why wasn't that adam bass charged? >> we don't know how much -- this is the case across the board at different levels. it's true, that student's father has not been targeted by the investigation. we don't know how much they knew. what he claims is that they had hired rick singer, who is the linchpin at the center of the case, who is running the scam, as a consultant to help with the application and the story is he
8:37 am
had the password to the application and went in and changed this data. so at the moment, that's the statement from the family and they haven't been charged in the investigation. we still don't know. >> what's remarkable about that case is not only it's a white student passed off as an african-american tennis player but a student who supposedly -- from privilege. father is educated, wealthy, on the board of the private school. but on the application it says first generation college student. you go from frivolous to struggling trying to make your way up. how is it cases like this are missed in the application process? >> how did it go this long? >> if not for this guidance counselor, would it still be going on? >> i hope not. i have to say that all of the colleges that have been drawn into this web, whether through dubious athletic recruiting practices or other pathways are now, as you can imagine, conducting major investigations on their own admissions processes, how students are
8:38 am
vetted, how much pull athletic departments have. they are also, of course, evaluating students who were accepted over the past few years, who had involved rick singer in their applications. because the question of whether these students deserve to be in these schools is obviously open. >> one thing is clear from the article, most of the students were not aware of what their parents were doing. >> it would seem that way. it would seem that way. >> the future for them? kicked out of school? a haunting line about how what they may have to do, as the article concludes, the lesson they have to learn is on learning the values of their parents it seems. >> i think the core of this story and the core of the scandal is about privilege and about recognizing privilege. and that's something that these parents are going to have to go through and something the students will have to go through. reckoning with how much opportunity they have had in the first place and what the right way is to capitalize.
8:39 am
>> a new college scandal "propublica" has just talked that is parents transferring their legal guardianship over to another relative so their kids can get financial aid. >> which is apparently legal, and which is a reminder that our story is about something that was definitely illegal and is now being investigated. but that is legal in our system, and yet it puts so many students who should be being helped by the system at a disadvantage will people who know how to gain the system get that advantage. that feels to me like something we all have to reckon prosecute. >> gain the system. >> thank you very much for being with us this morning. go to from adam bass's family and the buckley school. if you drive along one stretch of highway in north dakota, you may be shocked to suddenly discover you're in the

you if you don't get out of my place. okay, i'm out of here. >> it's been a farming community for a hundred years. that's great. you've gone from a town of 400 to a hundred. i thought, something's got to change. this is what i've come up with to help them out. you guys take it and run with it. i haven't seen any running with it yet. while he waits for them to come around, he keeps on building for designs for at least three more sculptures. >> i'm want these to be a legacy for north dakota, a legacy for regent. i don't care about me. i mean i wanted people to say, if he can do something like this, goll' dang it. maybe i can do something. you can do whatever you put your mind to it. just do it. >> the north dakota legislature
