5:04 am
facing increased scrutiny over its meetings by past and present associates with russians having close ties to the kremlin. in a tweet this morning mr. trump wrote, quote, the first meeting jeff sessions had with the russian am bass tore was set up by the obama administration under education program for 100 ambassadors. mr. trump was referring to then senator jeff sessions. sessions is now attorney general. he will reply on monday in writing to questions by senate democrats about his contacts with a russian ambassador last year. senate judiciary chairman republican chuck grassley rejected democrats' request to have sessions come back for a public hearing. meanwhile president trump is calling for an investigation into a leading democrat's own meetings with russian officials. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president trump woke up at his mar-a-lago resort this morning firing off a tirm any of this n
5:05 am
information, but the president is clearly irritated, and this follows a week in which mr. trump mostly stayed on message as questions surrounding his team's contacts with russia persists. >> you're all business and you're going to make a lot of money, right? but don't run for politics after you do that. >> reporter: president trump visited a fourth grade class in orlando friday as he tried to refocus attention on school choice programs. it caps a week of well received speeches for the president, first to a joint session of congress outlining his agent ta and another address aboard a newly commissioned aircraft carrier promoting an expansion of the military. >> i am calling for one of the largest defense spending increases in history. >> but that's all being
5:06 am
overshadowed by questions surrounding the growing list of advisers who met with russian ambassador sergey kislyak during and after the election. it includes trump's son-in-law jared kushner, michael flynn and carter paige and j.d. gordon. >> i never had a meeting with russian operatives or russian intermediaries about the trump campaign. >> on thursday attorney general jeff sessions recused himself from any of his agency's investigation into the russian election interference because he met with kislyak twice last year. chuck schumer and other senate democrats want sessions to testify under oath about those meetings. in response, the president tweeted these photos friday, showing schumer and house democratic leader nancy pelosi with vladimir putin and dimitri medvedev suggesting they be investigated. roger stone who was a formal
5:07 am
adviser to the trump campaign denied any connection to russia in an interview with cbs news. >> it's a witch hunt. >> you think it is. >> i know it is. >> the president was asked directly last month if he was aware of contacts between his team and russian officials. >> how many times do i have to answer this question? >> can you just say yes or no on it? >> it's a ruse. >> the questioning continued on friday in which schumer said he would happily discuss his contacts with russia under oath and in flochblt the press. there's been no twitter response from the president on ha just yet. mr. trump is scheduled to meet with his national security council in florida and deep with his newly appointed commerce secretary. alex? >> thanks, errol. let's turn to philip bump from the "washington post." good to see you. an early morning tweeted storm from the president attempting to
5:08 am
put blame on the democrats for all of this amid a number of allegations about trump campaign officials meeting with russians. will this strategy work? >> it seems to work with the base so far. well, chuck schumer and nancy pelosi did it too. but i think it's important to note that it's disingenuous. the question here is not did they meet. of course, they did. the issue is to what extent did they meet with the russians before the election campaign. that's what the question is. that's why this web of ties is important. it's not just sitting down and meeting with the ambassador. >> now that sessions has recused himself, where do thing fwos from here? >> it's a good question. right now there are investigations under way. the intelligence committee, for example, appears to be investigating this and there's fbi investigation that's been under way for some time. jeff sessions won't be involved
5:09 am
with that. but there are a lot of other options. there could be a special prosecutor, independent committee. the real question is political operation. to what extent do they need to act to do something more about this? >> the question is to what degree do they need to appoint more officials to have an aggressive posture toward russia to perhaps prove there is no collusion between the two governments, right? >> yeah. i mean for the most part, the white house has already established its top tier. it's put out most of its cab nets nominees. there are some signs doing exactly what it said. >> deputies. >> exactly. deputies that demonstrate that. but it still doesn'tance the question. i'm not sure donald trump feels as though he will be motivated to demonstrate how anti-russia he is in that way with these questions looming. >> but mar gretsch bren about and others reported there appear to be signs that the approach to russia is shifting.
5:10 am
>> yes. the broad question is what happened with russia before election day, right? >> yes. >> with that question unanswered, all of the -- whatever the administration does now, i think, is secondary to that question and i think clearly what we're seeing this morning and what we've seen over the course of last week, donald trump's response is not to change what he's douk but to deflect it. >> what, ben, are the ripple effects in terms of his agenda? he had a big speech this week that was supposed to be a turning point f you will. then this storm re-emerges. how does that affect what happens in congress and the president's agenda moving forward? >> i think what's stunning, he came out of ha speech giving you tim presentation this is a different donald trump, he's talking about policy issues. roughly, but he's talking about policy issues. and instantaneously he steps on it. there was a story about the russian ties. but, you know, during the
5:11 am
speech, the time for trivial fights is over, i think is what he said. and then he starts launching all these trivial fights. donald trump repeatedly during the campaign would do something and step on it and make it harder for himself. >> and meantime there is resistance within the republican party itself over the obamacare plans. many of the republicans saying they haven't had a chance to see it yet. >> right. the trick to obamacare, obamacare itself was sorts of the bipartisan strategy for dealing with health care. it came out of what's called romney care in massachusetts. it's a big strategy. it's hard to figure out how you're going give everything to everyone at a low cost. it's meeting with resistance. it's not clear where it's going to end up. the replacement is a lot trickier than they anticipated. >> he's stoked the ire of his own parties with rand paul and ted cruz saying maybe they
5:12 am
won't. good to see you. thanks for joining us. paula reid is in our washington bureau with that part of the story. good morning. >> good morning. as the nation's top law enforce mnlts official jeff sessions will oversee some of the most cob ten shus cases in the country, but this week he was the controversy. so much, it may be harder for the nation's top cop. >> i have been here for three weeks. a lot has been happening. >> this is likely not how jeff sessions eninvestigationed his first press conference as attorney general, announcing his recusal to the investigation of ties between the u.s. and russia after a previously undisclosed meeting with a russian ambassador. >> i believe those rex men dagss are right and just. therefore, i have recused myself
5:13 am
in matters that deal with the trump campaign. >> sessions is unlikely to heed the democrats' call for a resignation, but so much controversy in the first few weeks of office could undermine the ambitious agenda he laid out earlier in the ek woo. he promised a renewed promise on drug prosecutions including marijuana. >> i am, as you know, am dubious about marijuana. >> strict on enforcement of immigration laws. >> we're housing a lot of people who committed serious crimes who entered the kun troy unlawfully and who are stoins be reported. >> and a hall mark of the obama department. >> we need so far as we can in my view help police departments get better, not diminish their effectiveness. i'm afraid we've done some of that. we're going to pull back on some of that. >> on friday he met with the
5:14 am
ncaap to high light some of their rights. the desire is to move away from some of the federal police departments and insist that someone with experience head the civil rights division. despite a rocky third week on the job, sessions still has the full support of his bosses. >> the president and i have full confidence in the attorney general. he is a man of integrity. >> there's still a few outstanding questions including what specifically was discussed during his meetings with the ambassador and to what extent he's actually recused himself. is it only for inquiries into the campaign or negations into the white house. thoejts? >> paula lead in the white house. thank you, paula. many immigrants are afraid they might be deported because of trump's policy. rose easy co-bar who says her husband was detain and deimportanted to el salvador two weeks ago.
5:15 am
the father of three was working on his status. his attorney said he's never been convicted of a violent or serious crime. >> this ving is not part of what president trump and all his policies have been, deporting criminals, getting rid of the bad hombres. sadly we're getting rid of good hombres too. >> rose escobar said she's fighting to pay the mortgage and keep her young children. she said she'll fight to get her husband back in the u.s. mike pence rejected the request to review e-mail records when he was governor. "the indianapolis star" reports he used a private e-mail account to conduct business when he was governor. on the campaign trail he repeatedly attacked hillary clinton for her use of a private e-mail whisystem while she was secretary of state. this ing shows the former

from black lives matter to pipeline sit-ins to anti-trump protests. >> they're calling for organizers and participants if it turns vie henlts or causes damage. one failed bill call for prosecution under racketeering laws. here to discuss it, co-director of the brennan centers liberty and national security program. good to see you. thanks for joining the show. so the right to free speech and to public asem will be i are two of our dearest and most protected constitutional rights. how unusual are these bills in grand scheme of things? >> one thing to remember, right,
5:47 am
is that the first amendment protects these individual rights but it does that in service of democracy. you need free speech, you need free assembly in order for citizens to participate and the make their voices heard. now, you know, suppressing protests or making it more difficult has long been something that's been tried in lots of different environments. like a recent example is leak in the early 2000s, there were a number of bills intree tuesdayed around the country, several of the states we're looking at now, which aim to curb animal rights protests, right? and none of these bills actually made it through. they never actually got past, but they still had the effect which was intended, which is that they made people nervous. they made people scared to join protests, to organize, and to make their voices heard. that's, i think, exactly what we're looking at right now. you know, if i'm like an immigrants rights org nieanizer one of these states and i see
5:48 am
this law and people prosecuting under a racketeering law or seizing my assets really without much due process, i'm going to think twice about organizing those protests. >> in one case they're talking about prosecuting under the racketeering act. constitutionally is this a chance anything like this could pass? >> i think it's really unlikely. if you go back to the history of rico which was passed back in 1970 which was to deal with organized crime, they were worried right then that this would have the impact of encompassing first amendment protected activities so they narrowed rico. it only covers certain crimes which are normally associated with a criminal crime, kidnapping, extortion, murder. then you add writing to that list. that obviously goes beyond what rico was meant to dond a it would have very serious constitutional problems. >> this is coming when the

country is deeply divided over the actions of the trump administration. there have been a number of public protests. we're also aware some of the lawmakers who are trying to put this in place were at one time trump supporters. is that right? >> that seems to be the kasem there has been a connection to the campaign. >> the supporters -- it's not about addressing free speech but public safety, prevention of property damage. >> look. whenever somebody introduce as law that impacts constitutional rights, they don't say, hey, i'm out here, i'm here to suppress protests. they always have some other reasonable expectation. look, public safety is always an issue when you're talking about lots of people coming together. the authentic is we have laws that deal with this. if things get out of hand, we have laws to deal with that as well, right?
5:50 am
you can get prosecuted. people have been prosecuted for damage to property and for damage to violence as well. and let's not for get, right, that the vast majority of the protests we've seen have been completely peaceful, right? you have millions of people marching in women's march. it with us no problem. thousands of people aet the airports in the wake of the immigration ban. >> well, it will be interesting to follow how this makes its way through the courts or not. thanks for your time. thanks. it's a problem in many urban communities. too few places to buy healthy food. ahead, we'll visit a visionary company that's come up with a market-based solution to bringing healthy food to neighborhoods in need. something that was put in place by over 2 1/2 centuries ago. why we may see a modern update

5:56 am
trap. all of the proposed changes are aimed at making the spormt you watch on tv and play on the course faster and simpler. but at least one ancient tradition won't change. players will still use the honor system in keeping score. >> okay. so the rules are not final. we're looking at 2019 possibly. as you can imagine there's been lot of support from the golf community. >> i think so. i'm not a big golf fan but any excuse to use donald duck in a clip is fine with me. coming up, alison krauss. no one alive today has received more grammy awards. 27 and counting. we'll hear alison perform from her latest album coming up. for some of you rain shower local news is next. for some of you, stick around. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

you said broadway is a thousand times harder than the musical? how is that? >> there's so many moorking parts. when it's all on pape, it's one thing. but when you put it up on stage, truly the professionals have the take over and make these great ideas work. stage them, make them move, make them speak, make the music tie in and be complementary. and so, you know, it's durchlts than making a record or standing up on stage and singing a song. >> and you have do it over and over again every night. >> over and over again every night and strive for perfection. >> yeah. i went and saw the play last week. that little boy, i have to say, tommy, is faechk. like the whole vibe, the whole genre. you said, i know those people, know they street, know e that life.

welcome to "cbs this morning: saturday." i'm anthony mason? and i'm alex wagner. coming up this half hour, a company that has a lot on its plate. it's trying to offer healthy and affordable food to communities that need it most. plus a plan to bring back a historic item to los angeles. trying to get it restore and back on track. and a preview of the coming season. >> our top story, president trump launches an early morning tweet storm. it was loaded with explosive and unchecked claims that obama wiretapped his campaign. in one tweet he described obama
6:01 am
as a bad or sick guy. >> that is, of course, not at the only thng on the president's mind this morning. errol barnett has more from west palm beach. >> reporter: good morning. well, president trump's tweet storm this morning also included a defense of his attorney general jeff sessions and his meetings with the russian ambassador last year. the revelation of those meetings led to sessions recusing himself from any of his agency's investigation into russian election interference on thursday. he seemed to be dogged by questions from the democratic leadership why so many of the president's advisers had previously undisclosed contact with the russian ambassador before and after the election but mr. trump has dismissed those questions and is using this working weekend with plans to promote his agenda. it could include a new travel ban which could be announced next week and a roadmap to
6:02 am
repeal and replace obamacare. tomorrow at his mar-a-lago resorts, he'll meet with his national security kounlt and diner with his newly appointed commerce secretary wilbur ross. >> thanks, errol. "the new york times" is reporting uber used software in cities where ride hailing service has not yet been approved. they were able to identify undercover officials who were trying to catch unregulated uber drivers sa the report follows recent allegations o sexual harassment throughout the company and a well publicized gumts between uber's ceo and a drive. good morning. >> good morning. >> what exactly was uber doing here? >> so uber's strategy was to essentially launch its company before it received regular la tyer approval and as part of that, that meant putting people
6:03 am
on the road. and occasionally there were some cities that did not take kindly to this and we're investigating it. so uber had ways. and essentially shunting them to a fake uber site so that they were unable to hail ubers. >> >> so this all -- uber says the program was developed to deny drivers terms of service. but part of the company's statement about the gray ball program specifically points to what is called secret stings. >> yeah. >> is this lawfulsome. >> i am no legal expert. apparently uber's own lawyers say it is. i honestly can't weigh in on that. what it does to, it points out -- the strength of uber has been its willingness to go and ask for forgiveness, probably not even ask for forgiveness, just go hard. >> right. >> it works for a long time. they thought, the taxi and
6:04 am
limousine service is trying to shut us down. we're going to get our consumers on our side, go hard and dare people to shut us down. >> what's interesting and you mentioned this before the segment began, the leaks are coming from within uber effectively. >> that's correct. uber has behaved aggressively and obnoxiously and has not had to apologize very much. the difference is a few weeks aftra vis kalanick was forced to step down from trump's business advisory council, that's because his own engineers were activated by it. >> they were angry about it. >> exactly. the engineers in silicon valley have a lot of power. there are not many of them and you want to keep them happile the fact that his own engineers said enough is enough, i can't work with this company anymore or i'm going to risk my career by leaking this to "the new york times" really tells a story. >> uber has options.
6:05 am
>> that's a real danger for uber. unlike facebook where you're locked in because your friends are there, often drivers of uber work for other companies so you just push a button. this gets in their way because they need -- they need government cooperation to do that and they need engineers to do that. >> jason very quickly, can travis kalanick survive a week as ceo after a situation like this? >> two months ago i would have said yes. now -- >> after a season like this. downtown los angeles has experienced a development boon as new shops and restaurants as more than 50,000 moved in. they're seeking to rescue a beloved relic. that is happening at least in

6:07 am
million people had rid about the two railcars but in late '60s, the hilltop neighborhood was razed to make way for skyscrapers and angel's flight was disassembled and put in storage. railway had a brief renaissance in 1996. but two accidents, one of them in 2001 that resulted in the delts of a tourist doomed to stand idle where they haven't carried passengers since 2013. >> but as anyone who has seen "la la land" can tell you, dreams do still come true here in los angeles. we felt again that sense of romance and i was ready to join them. and soon we will all be able to once again when we reopen angel's flight later this year here in los angeles. >> yeah. >> reporter: over the next six months a a group of engineering firms will add new safety features and rehabilitate the 15-year landmark with the goal of reopening to the public by

labor day. and although the track might run for less than 300 feet, its sal vai vags is a historic milestone in a city not known for its preservation in the past. >> the longest journey to the shortest ride ever. >> i am so psyched about this. partly because when i saw the movie, i thought, i want to ride that. >> where is that? i used to live in los angeles. as we all know, there's not a lot that was preserved. it's great to see a relic come back. >> it sure is. it's about 8 minutes after the hour. now here's a look at the weather for your weekend. up next in the middle of a

6:23 am
there's nothing beggar than "fast and the furious." that's why people love them. the first stuff the car goes under the truck. in the last move they had sky-diechbing cars. in this one they have cars fighting a submarine in ice. i don't know what's going on. the only way they'll top this is cars in space. >> you say that. >> that could actually happen. >> number 9. okay. speaking of reboots and sequels, "congress skull island." which is the latest of the king kong reboot. what's happening here? >> that's right. this is kind of like it has an "a" movie budget but at it's heart it's a "b" movie. it's a monster movie. >> you've seen this movie. >> i have. it's fun. lots of wall -to-wall action. you're not going to see congress and brie larson. >> the heroine. >> yes. >> if you want to see beauty and
6:24 am
the beast, go to the beast. if you want to see a beast punch a giant okay tu pos in the face, you'll go see congress skull island. >> the new film "logan" which is part of the x men series. >> may be the last x men movie at least of this era. it's the x men. that i could have got an "x" rating. it's very graphic, violent, and it even has nudity. it's for x men and x women not for x boys and x girls. it's an adult mean but really, really good. it's a nice send-off if you're a finance of these movies. and of hugh jackman, he said this is the last time he's playing this role. >> almost x rated x men. moving on, there's a new movie out "song to song." it has ryan gosling in it. will there be singing? >> i don't know if there's
6:25 am
singing but he's another musician. he plays the piano. >> since he learned the play the piano for "la la land," maybe make use of it. >> he plays a musician. loonie is a musicing and they fall in love and michael fast bend der, the record producer comes between them. they're always evil. >> this looks like fast-paced action. >> i think that might be the trawler talking here. i think if you like that dreamy poetic terrance malik five, i think you're still going to get it 507z. >> all right. ite been 20 twreers since danny boyle's train spotting. >> that's the appeal of it. 20 years later they got the cast and danny o'boyle to come back. they were so young and drug addicts in the original film. i guess the hook year is what happens to those kind of people 20 years later, what do they
6:26 am
look like? they look pretty good for a bunch of drug addicts. he's going to be a bunch of twists. i'm excited. >> me too. meanwhile emma watson is in the movie based on the 2013 "the circle." >> it's a thriller about paranoia, surveillance, hacking. i tojts know where ohio comes up with these crazy ideas. emma watson, a young worker, goes to work for tom hanks at his tech company. it has a little bit of a suspension angle but timely as well that i like seeing toe ing eggers on the screen. thanks for your time. coming up on "the dish," james glocker earned james beard award for the best food in the nation. wheel sample some of his winning dishes coming up next. you're watching "cbs this morning" sarld.
6:27 am
obviously i don't think anybody's going to forget your win now, but did it in any way diminish the celebration for you? >> i don't know if it diminished the celebration for us. it just made it much more complicated. ads you said, i think the celebration's's bound up now between our film and the academy in a complicated way as someone in a shakespearean tragedy is a bit more interesting? i don't know. it made it difficult to say all the thank-yous we needed to say, but at the same time it was a great way to show the camaraderie and love that we all have for both of the films.
6:28 am
>> tarell, the film, of course, adapted from your work in "moonlight: black boys look blue." for those who haven't seen this coming of age story and now many will flock to see this movie, what do you hope to convey and help people learn? >> i think what barry did in the film that's so impressive that's served as a lightning rod is he really put his full self in there. he really took a movie story about memories that i had given to him and made it an experience about those memories and mate it an intimate experience and i think that continues to be the reason why people have seen the film and will continue to see it. hope more people will see it. that's really exciting. i mean the first time he showed it to me, i felt so -- i don't know. i felt like he had gone into my head and took pictures of my memory and spread them across the screen. ,,,,,,,,,,
