Biden's support splinters amid calls to exit race

Weeks after appearing side-by-side with President Bident at a Hollywood fundraiser, actor George Clooney on Wednesday called on Mr. Biden to step out of the 2024 race in an editorial in the New York Times. And in a sign that his support in Congress may be weakening, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in an interview that "it's up to the president to decide if he's going to run." Scott MacFarlane and Ed O'Keefe report from Washington.

Tense exchange on Biden's health at briefing

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre got into a tense back-and-forth with members of the media Monday over questions about a Parkinson's expert reportedly visiting the White House multiple times over the last year. It was not clear whether the expert was consulting about President Biden's health or not. The briefing was the third straight briefing dominated by questions on the president's health following his debate with former President Donald Trump.

More questions about Biden health at briefing

For a second straight day, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was peppered with questions about President Biden's health as fallout from last week's debate with former President Donald Trump continues. Jean-Pierre said she made a mistake Tuesday by not mentioning the jet lag the president told donors he was suffering from during the debate, despite having returned to Washington, D.C., from his overseas trip with a stop in Los Angeles on June 16. The debate was held June 27 in Atlanta. CBS News campaign reporter Aaron Navarro provided analysis following the briefing.
