opener" your world in 90 seconds. enough question has been raised about whether he can lead a credible investigation into this. i think it would be best if he were to step aside. >> the chairman of the house intelligence committee under scrutiny. >> it could very well be the case that chairman nunez was briefing members of the administration about an investigation of which they are the subject. >> you understand why it's causing such an uproar? >> i do. but if i really wanted to i could have snuck on to the grounds late at night and probably nobody would have seen me. but i wasn't trying to hide. a new round of severe thunderstorms is moving into the southern plains. >> up to baseball-size hail possible. winds gusting 60 to 70 miles per hour. >> two police officers in miami have been shot while conducting an anti-gang operation. >> they are expected to survive. >> this is a real threat. this is serious. >> northern australia is being pounded by one of the biggest

7:03 am
becoming president. just work your magic. >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." top congressional democrats say the house intelligence committee's chairman cannot be trusted with the investigation of russian interference in the election. california republican devin nunez revealed yesterday that he met with an unnamed source and reviewed classified documents last week on the white house grounds. he returned the next day to tell president trump what he learned. democrats want nunez to recuse himself. >> the president tried to shift attention on twitter last night, claiming that bill and hillary clinton had more damaging ties to russia saying, quote, trump/russia story is a hoax. jeff pegas is on capitol hill
7:04 am
with pressure on nunez to step aside. >> good morning. house speaker paul ryan has full confidence that congressman nunez can conduct a fair and credible investigation but pressure is building on the congressman to explain his actions and reveal his source. >> there was no sneaking around. i walked on to the grounds, said hi to people. i did not go to the west wing, did not talk to the president. >> reporter: the chairman of the house intelligence committee, devin nunez, said it was not a secret that he visited a secure location at the white house last tuesday to review classified documents. >> i needed a place that i could actually go and find this information and review it. >> reporter: the congressman, wouldn't reveal his source, but says there is evidence that agencies under the obama administration had intercepted communications involving members of the trump transition team, but he dismissed president trump's allegations that president obama wiretapped trump tower. >> that never happened. >> reporter: nearly a week after
7:05 am
nunez briefed the president on the new information, ranking member adam schiff says the congressman has yet to share the intelligence with other members of the house committee he leads. >> it's not just an unwillingness to share with democrats. none of the members, democrats or republicans, has seen what the chairman is referring to. >> reporter: schiff believes the chairman should recuse himself from the investigation. >> certainly this is a decision that i don't reach lightly and i'm very unhappy frankly to have gotten to this point. >> reporter: democrats are accusing nunez of trying to shield the president in the midst of the investigation into whether his campaign team coordinated with russian operatives. >> chairman nunez is falling down on the job. and seems to be more interested in protecting the president than in seeking the truth. >> reporter: in another surprise move, late last week, congressman nunez announced that he was bringing back fbi director comey and nsa director rogers to testify. this time in a closed hearing.
7:06 am
that was supposed to happen today, but that hearing has been canceled. gayle? >> all right. thank you. the white house says the president's son-in-law and senior adviser volunteered to answer senate intelligence committee questions about his russian contacts. jared kushner, ivanka trump's husband, met with executives from a russian bank. veb has been under u.s. sanctions since 2014. this morning a kremlin spokesman called the kushner meeting routine business. senate committee members will ask kushner about his meeting with russia's u.s. ambassador sergey kislyak. >> president trump turns to the environment and jobs and will sign an executive order erasing many of former president obama's climate regulations. margaret brennan is at the white house with new rules for coal mining. >> good morning. the white house is trying to shift back focus to campaign
7:07 am
promises it can keep. and while he's previously called climate change a hoax, now white house officials say president trump believes it. despite his change of heart, today he'll repeal obama era regulations to limited. >> global warming and that, a lot of it is a hoax. >> reporter: candidate donald trump often called climate change a fake concept. >> we're going to cancel the paris climate agreement. >> reporter: and promised to scratch the obama era climate change agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions in more than 100 countries. mr. trump may stick with the global deal, but has decided to shao an executive order reducing regulations on america's energy industry. another campaign promise. >> the regulation industry is one business i will absolutely put to an end day one. >> reporter: he will suspend, revise or rescind the clean power plant rule aimed at reducing carbon emissions.
7:08 am
asked the interior department to lift a moratorium on the sale of new coal leases on federal land, and scrap a limit on greenhouse gas emissions for construction of new power plants. >> we can be both pro-jobs and pro-environment. >> reporter: epa administrator pruitt said the obama-era regulations cost jobs. >> the executive order is going to address the past administration's effort to kill jobs across this country through the clean power plant. >> reporter: but at a time of low energy prices some jobs may not return and mr. trump's actions will certainly reignite the debate over whether climate change is manmade. >> this is an action plan for destroying the climate. >> reporter: david donger of the national resources defense council. >> we're leaving a bad future for our kids. rising sea levels, terrible storms, scorching droughts. more air pollution. it's really a bad place you don't want go there. >> reporter: and later today, president trump will roll back
7:09 am
those regulations, a campaign promise that won him support in coal mining industrial states like west virginia and pennsylvania. charlie? >> thanks, margaret. a conservative writer and publisher of the conservative website. good morning. >> good to be with you. >> what does this do for the president in the political context of what happened last week, rolling back of environmental regulations. >> it's an interesting time for the president right now. he's facing a lot of challenges from a lot of different directions and trying to find, frankly, a good win that he can give his supporters after the debacle of this health care law in the last week he wants to find something he can deliver on quickly to change the narrative in washington. >> second question, what does it do to the environment, climate change, and the planet. >> i think this is going to be an interesting question going forward when it comes to these different accords. the real question that i think a lot of people have about climate policy is whether we're going to be able to deliver on the kind of changes that we need to achieve and whether that can be done through government regulation at all. a lot of the skepticism on the
7:10 am
right side of the aisle is whether they can be achieved through accords like the paris agreement. instead i think they're looking to things like technological advance isn't and other changes in order to increase the kind of health and clarity that we have within our environmental experience. >> now there are calls for devin nunez to recuse himself for this investigation. do you -- where do you see that going, ben? do you think it's necessary to have legitimacy in this investigation? >> i think you do need to have a legitimate investigation but right now we have an investigation when it comes to the russian side of things from the fbi and james comey and when it comes to these calls there's much more reputation of the partisan interest of democrats in in washington as we've seen in the past the power of minority in congress to influence administrations, really do come from the investigative side. that's what's going on here. chairman nunez is actually someone who has a lot of trust within the republican coalition as being someone who is not a camera hog or someone who chases headlines. that's one of the reasons why he got this job in the first place. >> but there does appear to be a
7:11 am
lack of transparency? >> there is a lack of transparency at this point on his part. one of the reasons for that is he has a history of cultivating a lot of intelligence sources within the community. he was a clear sort of source of the information that related to the effective intelligence when it came to centcom and isis a few years ago. one of the real questions going forward what is really matters here. is it the question about donald trump's tweet, i don't think it is at all. i think there is an open question if what chairman nunez is claiming is correct, if there really was intelligence information that was distributed throughout the agency and he now claims in an interview yesterday to the obama white house itself that is something that deserves further inquiry and we need more transparency in this process. >> but wait wait wait. he hasn't discovered anything and he hasn't shared it with anybody? >> you don't think so. >> he showed up at the white house and received some information from a source that he's not even disclosed to either republicans or democrats on the committee. >> sure but this is
7:12 am
traditional -- >> if it's that relevant shouldn't he share with other members of the committee. >> one of the interests it. >> he's been clear obama did not wiretap trump tower. >> it had nothing to do with what's going on here in the sense that he went to the white house to go to a secure facility scif to review information only available through the executive branch. it is not available at the scif on capitol hill. he claims -- >> i've never heard of that. >> well -- >> members of the intelligence committee go all the time to capitol hill and give them briefings in secure facilities on capitol hill. >> in this case he has a source in the intelligence community he claims brought this information to him, he's viewed it, he's taken down the document numbers involved, he wants other members of the committee to view it, but i think in this case he's very protective of an internal source in the intelligence committee, less important than having clarity about what's going on here. >> what do you think the information will tell us. >> that this was not that big of a deal, that this was a situation where they -- that they had incidental collection of information, perhaps
7:13 am
conversations between foreign officials about their open meetings with the trump transition team, where they expected certain family members, for instance, to end up within the white house scheme, but we don't know that until we actually have this information and that's one of the reasons we need more clarity from this committee, from chairman nunez, sooner rather than later. >> ben, thank you so much for joining us. >> good to be with you. >> senator john mccain joins us ahead. we'll ask him about the status of the russian investigation and why he expects a lot more shoes to drop. >> and i will interview house speaker paul ryan tomorrow about the status of health care reform and what's nex on the republican agenda. you can see my conversation thursday right here on "cbs this morning." >> a manhunt is under way for the gunman responsible for an ambush-style attack overnight on two florida police officers. fellow miami dade officers used a pick-up truck to rush their wounded colleagues to the hospital. bullet holes could be seen in the car where the plain clothed officers were sitting at the time of the attack.
7:14 am
outside jackson memorial hospital trauma center in miami where the officers are being treated. manuel, good morning. >> good morning. this is where the officers were dropped off. we learned this morning from the director of the miami dade police department that the shooter used an ak-47 to spray their car with bullets injuring those two police officers after the shrapnel went flying. >> we have two officers shot. two officers shot. >> reporter: this video shot from outside the hospital shows a black ford pick-up truck racing toward the emergency room. with the two injured miami-dade police officers in the bed. the undercover officers, who are operating as part of the homicide task force's gang unit, were conducting surveillance inside an unmarked car in a notoriously gang ridden area when officials say they were targeted. >> the end result of that, their operation, was that they were apparently shot in an ambush-style attack. >> reporter: one of the miami-dade officers was able to
7:15 am
return fire but authorities are not confident that the suspected attacker was hit. >> it's certainly trying moments for us all. we got lucky that officers will survive. >> reporter: police have yet to make any arrests but last night, the director of the miami-dade police department pleaded with the community for help in identifying the shooter. >> we need you now to step up to the plate. these are the people that are causing that havoc in our community. we're not going to stop. this isn't going to deter us from doing our jobs. this is going to ignite a bigger fire within us to protect our citizens. >> reporter: the officers' injuries are not considered to be life threatening. in fact, we have learned that one officer has already been released from the hospital. investigators say it is unclear whether the suspects knew they were targeting police. >> manuel, thanks. the u.n. human rights chief speaking out against a massive loss of civilian lives in western mosul iraq. he says at least 307 civilians have died and 273 have been wounded since february 17th.
7:16 am
american backed iraqi forces are fighting to push isis militants out of the city. jim mattis said yesterday the united states has been sensitive to civilian casualties. >> we are keenly aware that every battlefield where an enemy hides behind women and children, is also a humanitarian field. we go out of our way to always do everything humanly possible to reduce the loss of life. >> an investigation is under way to find out if a series of air strikes this month killed more than 100 civilians. a mother says tsa agents at dallas/ft. worth international airport went too far treating her family like dogs. jennifer williamson posted video of an agent patting down her son, held at the checkpoint about an hour causing them to miss their flight. omar villafranca is with an interview you will see only on
7:17 am
"cbs this morning" and the tsa's response. omar, good morning. >> good morning. the tsa says the procedure performed by that agent on video was part of the new standard pat-down that went into effect earlier this month and instead of several variations there's one full body pat-down. that touched a nerve with a mother who went through security here at dwf with her son. >> we were treated with utter disrespect as if we were criminals. >> reporter: jennifer williamson turned her anger into action sunday recording a tsa officer patting down her 13-year-old son at dallas/ft. worth international airport and posting it on facebook. >> i believe he was patted down excessively. they went over his sensitive areas a little more than necessary, especially given that he wasn't wearing bulky clothing or anything like that. >> reporter: williamson says the whole thing started when agents found a laptop in his book bag as it went through the scanning machine. they then said, her son would have to submit to a pat-down even though he did not set off
7:18 am
the body scanner. she requested they screen him in other ways, because her son suffers sensory processing disorder which makes him sensitive to touch. in the facebook video the agent explains the procedure and then pats down his backside. front and down his legs. his supervisor instructs the man to complete the final step. as per policy, the tsa officer uses the back of his hands for pat-downs over sensitive areas of the body. the tsa says the boy cooperated during the screening process and all approved procedures were followed. as for the wait time, in a statement, the agency says the passengers were at the checkpoint for approximately 45 minutes which included the time it took to discuss s ng procedures with the mother and to screen three carry-on items that required further inspection. >> his first question to me was, i don't understand why they did this. i don't know what i did wrong. and to me, that was a sign of
7:19 am
trauma for him to think he had done anything wrong. >> reporter: the new procedures were put in place after a 2015 audit found there were serious security lapses. williamson has filed a complaint with the tsa, but has not heard back. charlie? >> omar, thanks. parts of texas and oklahoma are bracing for more severe weather today. damaging hail rained down in alabama. strong storms created similar conditions across the southeast. several tornadoes were reported, including this one in northern mississippi. the severe weather knocked down trees, smashed cars, and damaged homes. a father speaks out after his daughter was billed for a guardrail that he says contributed to her death in a car crash. he says while leaving t,,

king and norah o'donnell. the investigation of russia's meddling in the 2016 election. about his meeting with officials of russia's beb bank, beb has deep ties to president vladimir putin and russian intelligence agencies. >> the previously undisclosed meeting happened during the transition before curb mer stepped down. the kremlin said this morning the meeting was "uteen business and was not aware of it." devin nunes revealed yesterday he met with an unnamed source on the white house grounds to review classified documents. that happened one day before nunes briefed the president on what he learned from the documents. he says the material had nothing to do with the russia investigation. the committee's top democrat

8:04 am
bipartisanship, otherwise the committee loses credibility, and so there is so much out there that needs to be explained by the chairman, and look, this is a very serious issue. it all started with russian interference attempts to change our election. >> should we reveal his source? >> i can't imagine why not and i also believe that the entire committee should be engaged. the reason why the armed services committee, honestly, does, is successful is we work in a bipartisan fashion. senator burr and warren are on our intelligence committee in the senate, work closely together.
8:05 am
they may have differences but you've got to have a bipartisan approach to an issue such as this if you want to be credible. >> senator, if you look at what he has done so far, there are demands by democrats that he recuse himself, does john mccain think he should recuse himself? >> i would leave that decision to the leadership of the house committee, excuse me, of the republicans in the house, probably paul ryan, but there's no doubt that look, it's dominating the news. it is annish of utmost importance and something's got to change, otherwise the whole effort in the house of representatives will lose credibility. i mean that's skrus obvious. >> you've also said president trump needs to address this issue. what do you want to hear from him at this point? have you have h any face-to-face meetings with him? would you like him? >> i think there's a reception tonight over at the white house, i'm sure i may encounter him in
8:06 am
there, but -- >> are you invited? >> i think so. >> what would you like to hear from the president, senator, at this point in time? >> well, first of all, i'd like to go back to the latest debacle, and that is that, when the democrats ran through obamacare, they did it on a strict partisan basis. we did not include the democrats and negotiations on obamacare. the issue is not going away. it's imploding, and arizona, obamacare is imploding. we've got to go back and address this issue on a bipartisan basis and we can't wait until people are without health care. so, and now we got to move on to tax reform. i would say first thing you should do is maybe bring that couple trillion dollars back to the united states at a lower tax rate and then you can work on infrastructure, and you can sit down together. we've got to have some bipartisanship around here, otherwise we're not going to get

presence in the balkans. we need to set up a counter to the very successful misinformation campaign and propaganda campaign that they're waging particularly in eastern europe. >> senator, can i ask you, officials reported yesterday that north korea has carried out another test of a rocket engine that u.s. officials believe could be part of a larger program. what needs to be done? how urgent is the north korean threat? >> i think it's the most urgent threat that we are facing right now, because if you have this rotund ruler whose behavior is obviously not rationale with the missile, with the nuclear weapon on it, that can reach the united states of america, that's just not a risk that we could take, and we have to prepare for certain eventualities, but frankly, the key to this is china. china could shut down north korea tomorrow, and we should gauge some of our relationship with china based on them
8:10 am
bringing north korea under control. >> but if that doesn't work, if the chinese will not help, in fact, then they do have deliverable capability from icbms to deliver a nuclear missile to the west coast of the united states, would you recommend the president take military action to eliminate that possibility? >> charlie, i think before i would recommend that, i'd have to know exactly what's going on, but under that scenario, that you just described, i don't see how it's acceptable to have a situation like that, where a person of not rational behavior -- he doesn't think like us -- to have that kind of capability, and with his finger on the trigger, i'm not saying we should go to war with them, but we should be accelerating our ability to counter it. >> all right, senator, we'll look forward to talking to you again maybe after the reception tonight, we'll know a little bit more. we talk about partisanship, but the republicans have some

whether this is appropriately housed at the federal level. and is it really appropriate for the federal government to be funding after school programs. and i think that the answer to that question is no. >> 21st century community learning centers were created in 1994 under president bill clinton. then expanded in 2001 under president george w. bush. it serves more than 2 million people each year on an annual budget of $1.2 billion. 550,000 of that goes to the plainfield, new jersey school district. federal funding that drops to zero in president trump's current budget proposal. is there any way the district could fund this program without those federal dollars? >> it would be challenging. of course, we can look to obtain competitive grant funding opportunities but that's not a
8:38 am
guarantee. and sacrificing the healthy and so very important learning experiences for children just doesn't seem worth it to me. >> the billion dollar cuts to 21st century learning center is about the same amount president trump is offering to charter schools. plainfield has five charter schools which helped create more than an dall$8 million deficit. this will make this after school program a critic. critics say charter schools are judged by the best. this is a situation where you have locally these after school programs that make a difference. i think the issue is scaling up. >> nobody denies a difference that they make for the better. he got all as on his report card. no easy answers. >> when you see improvement you

8:45 am
lee the philosophical writer. >> i think a lot of people don't understand the depth of his character, his knowledge and what was really foundational about the man which was his philosophy. >> so these are some of your father's writing? >> yes. and drawings. >> in her mid-20s shannon discovered dozens of letters and essays her father left behind including the one he continuously rewrote. >> i always and about marital artist by choice, an actor by profession but actualizing myself to be an arty of life. >> what do you make of the fact that he has nine draft. >> he's in process. he's working it out on the page. you can see it. he has crossed out things and written other words in different pen colors. it was a moment in time for him to very intentionally try to communicate who is bruce lee.
8:46 am
what is he really about. >> it was a difficult moment in his life. he was finally achieving his goal of making a mainstream hollywood film. the 1973 classic "enter the dragon." but shannon says the studio wanted to take out all of the philosophical elements he insisted on adding to the script. >> he fought, he fought with the writer, he fought with the producers and he said no, i am not coming on to set until you guarantee me that this is going to be in the film. >> he got his way. >> he got his way. >> it is like a finger pointing a way to the moon. don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory. >> what a gift this must be for you as a daughter who lost your daughter when you were young to have all of this. >> yeah. it's such a gift. this is a tiger skin --
8:47 am
>> finding this gift came with a great loss. >> right before my 24th birthday my brother was killed. and that plummeted me into quite a depression for many years. >> this way you'll always remember. >> 28-year-old brandon lee died in 1993, after accidentally being shot on the set of the movie "the crow." shannon found comfort in her father's words. >> i came across this quote that started with the medicine for my suffering i had within me. and i remember it hitting me so clearly right in the chest. you have the ability to shift out of this. you just have to look for the path and find the way. and so i did. hi, everyone this is shannon lee. >> she's now sharing her father's philosophy with the world through her podcast. >> he had his quote, you know, under the sky, under the heaven, we're all one family. >> they've been downloaded more than 1.3 million times.
8:48 am
>> mostly millennials, mostly young people. it thrills me that people are grabbing on the philosophy, they are getting the message. they are getting to know who he is beyond the movies. >> so shannon told me she's aware some people think she's trying to make money off of her father's celebrity but she said bruce lee was all about reaching people through entertainment and now she's doing just the same thing. >> i see it as a daughter's love for her father. i think it's great she's sharing this phrase this medicine i have for suffering is within me. >> she said through his writings it's as if he's still parenting her. >> he was how old when he died >> 32. he accomplished a lot in a short period of time. >> a global figure. >> talk about accomplishing a lot in a short period of time. where your going. >> a big story.
8:49 am
>> going to be great. great time to being in asia. >> north korea. i have a feeling you'll be doing a lot of stories on north korea. >> we'll be saying hello and good morning from a great distance quite often. >> good luck. see you soon. we invite you to subscribe to our cbs "this morning" podcast on itunes and apple's podcast app. today cbs business news looks at what you need to know for tax day in just three weeks. save money through the irs website and when you might need hire a financial adviser. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,
