CBS News contributor and congressional reporter for the Washington Post, Ed O'Keefe, joins "CBS This Morning: Saturday" to discuss the government shutdown, confusion over President Trump's hard line when it comes to striking a deal with Democrats, and the larger implications for the Democratic and Republican parties.
President Trump is calling Friday night's Senate vote and the government shutdown a political gift. He tweeted that the shutdown is a "nice present" from Democrats on the anniversary of his inauguration. Major Garrett reports.
The government stopped operating Friday night, halting all but essential services, after the Senate came 10 votes short of reaching a temporary last-minute funding deal. The president is placing the blame on Senate Democrats who were holding out for a comprehensive bill and a deal to protect DACA recipients. Nancy Cordes reports.
The New York Times reported that Rep. Patrick Meehan of Pennsylvania settled with a former aide who claimed that he made romantic overtures toward her and became hostile when she did not reciprocate. Meehan denied wrongdoing.
