of the house in our history. pelosi's announcement comes nearly three weeks after her husband paul was viciously attacked in their san francisco home. she says she will remain in congress. in january, republicans will have a slim majority. >> last week, the american people spoke. and their voices were raised in defense of liberty, of the rule of law, and of democracy itself. >> pelosi told reporters that that attack on her husband almost had the opposite effect. she actually considered staying in leadership because she didn't want to give them the satisfaction. george, she does say she now feels balanced about the decision that she made. >> now a new generation of democratic leaders is lined up to take her place and the place of other democratic leaders. >> exactly right, george. the frontrunner to replace nancy pelosi is congressman hakeem jeffries of new york. if elected by house democrats, he could become the first black lawmaker to lead a party in

morning. we have four brutal stabbings. police are reportedly trying to track down a specific combat knife. what kind of profile are they putting together on the possible killer? >> a couple things they're going to be looking for here. with the combat knife they're looking for, one of the things we know from targeted attacks is that sometimes the individuals who carry them out will get to a point where they dress as what we in the field call a pseudo commander. they have gotten tactical gear that really shows a commitment to carrying this out. so investigatively they're going to look at recent purchases of this combat knife that they think may be involved, other tactical gear, like tactical vests, and they're also going to be asking about witnesses in the area who may have seen someone in that type of gear. the other thing they're going to be looking for is information through social media, dms, things like that, of someone who might have been pursuing one of these roommates or one of the
7:36 am
victims because they were interested in a romantic relationship. a fixated pursuit. so they're going to be looking to see if there's any social media indication there, anything in emails that someone was pursuing an interest, fixated, stalking. because this is a very intimate crime that we're talking about here. >> and you're an expert in targeted attacks. do you believe this was a targeted and that there was only one killer? >> it is highly likely that there was only one killer. i believe it is also very likely they were targeting one of the individuals, possibly two. but they encountered two others at the same time. we typically don't see knife attacks, stabbings that are carried out by multiple people. this is typically going to be one person. it's always a possiblepossibilit likelihood that it's one we're talking about. >> doctor, thank you so much for your time this morning. george. coming up next, from

we're back with the latest on elizabeth holmes. the theranos founder, once the world's youngest female self-made billionaire, is being sentenced after being convicted of fraud earlier this year. we have been tracking the story since the start, back with all the details. >> this story has been a long time coming. this day for investors who lost millions betting on elizabeth holmes, patients who received incorrect information about
7:41 am
their health because of faulty theranos blood tests and whistleblowers who risked everything to tell the truth. soon we'll know if elizabeth holmes faces prison time and for how long. this morning, judgment day for former billionaire and convicted felon elizabeth holmes. ten months after she was found guilty on four counts of criminal fraud, the founder of blood testing start-up theranos facing sentencing today in this san jose courthouse. government prosecutors want to see her serve 15 years and pay over $800 million in restitution. but holmes, who is pregnant with her second child, is asking for leniency. seeking house arrest instead of jail time. or at most, 18 months behind bars. in a filing, holmes' legal team arguing their client has been mocked and vilified, submitting 130 sympathetic letters of support from friends, family, investors, and even new jersey
7:42 am
senator cory booker. >> do you have anything to say? >> holmes' partner billy evans, heir to the evans hotel group, making one of the most dramatic appeals, sharing these family photos, and an eight-page letter he describes as words ripped from my heart. evans writing, holmes is my whole life. describing her as a doting mother who sings amazing grace to their son each night, and who spent many sleepless nights ahead of her sentencing sweating through the sheets and full of nightmares. he begs the court to please let her be free. >> the letters are certainly important, and their absence would certainly say something to the judge, but at the end of the day, they will only move the needle a very small amount because of the guideline's requirements. >> reporter: meantime, government prosecutors sharing
7:43 am
this letter from a whistle-blower who said holmes took a wrecking ball to their family and that the most heartbreaking of all is the hear your son describe that he contemplated suicide because he felt abandoned, isolated, threatened, and hopeless for doing the right thing. and one of the more surprising impact statements submitted by the government came from elizabeth holmes' aunt, asking the court to recognize the seriousness of the crime, writing penalties for white collar crime seem too often to be slaps on the wrist. we just heard there, probably not going to move the needle but shows how divisive this is even in her own family. >> that really is something. dan abrams is joining us. prosecutors are asking for 15 years. is that what she'll get? >> i think she'll get less than that. she's asking for no time. the sentences guidelines are pretty complicated. there are all these different factors you can examine in evaluating what the sentence ought to be. they're not binding. there are guidelines out there that federal judges do use as a guideline. i would expect, you're talking about closer to in the eight-year range.
7:44 am
somewhere in between, but i think the judge has to be kind of tough here. so if you're going to say, which side do you think you would go more towards? i would go more towards the tougher side of eight to ten than i would six to eight. >> does the fact she's pregnant have impact on the sentencing? >> it shouldn't have any impact at all. in particular because rebecca and i were talking about this earlier. doesn't mean she's doing to start serving the sentence immediately. so that certainly shouldn't have any impact. >> you have been following this case from the start. how is she doing now? >> well, you see it in these impact statements. this is clearly having an impact on her life. that baby that we have heard about that she's pregnant with, she's very unlikely to have that baby in prison because of the process here. once she's sentenced, especially if she's sentenced to actual prison time, her team would like to see her on house arrest instead, but if she's sentenced, they will appeal that. she's not going to have that baby in prison. >> we have seen these calls for leniency from several people,
7:45 am
including senator cory booker. how much of a difference does that make? >> not much. i believe with the expert who says if there weren't these letters, that could hurt her, but they don't necessarily help her. if there was a concern she's actually a horrible person, with no real support in the community, et cetera, that could actually end up leading to a tougher sentence. but having people come and say she's amazing, she's terrific, et cetera, i think it basically provides a kind of status quo situation. >> rebecca, the prosecution asking for $800 million in restitution. what would this mean for the victims? >> it could take a while. justice is ultimately what this means for the victims. obviously, i talked to a number of these people over the years. both the investors, some of them billionaires who lost millions, but the people who got misinformed about their health, the whistleblowers who put their lives on the line to tell the truth, that is what this restitution is about. it's about making right out of a situation that went so terribly wrong.
