7:04 am
mueller changes things. he is the former fbi director and he is highly regarded in washington by both democrats and republicans. as special counsel, he will have the power to prosecute if crimes were committed. deputy attorney general rod rosenstein says in a statement the special counsel will ensure a full and thorough investigation of the russian government's efforts to interfere in a 2016 presidential election. it was rosenstein's move since attorney general jeff sessions recused himself from all russia-related investigations over his own contacts with the russian ambassador, but sessions did play a role in former fbi director james comey's firing last week. president trump was said to be measured in his response to robert mueller's appointment as he huddled with his senior staff in the oval office. the white house released a statement, saying there was no collusion between my campaign
7:05 am
and any foreign entity. i look forward to this matter concluding quickly. mueller who resigned from private practice for this appointment wrote, i accept this responsibility and will discharge it to the best of my ability. he served as fbi director for a dozen years, starting a week before the 9/11 attacks. before that he led the u.s. probe into the 1988 pan am 103 bombing. at the time it was the deadliest terrorist attack against americans. >> you want to know who ordered it and you want to know who approved it and who else was involved in carrying out the attack. >> reporter: mueller has been promised resources in this investigation to follow leads, even the resources of the fbi. he has also been given broad authorities to chase those leads wherever they may go. gayle. >> all right. thank you jeff. on capitol hill lawmakers generally agree that robert mueller is the right choice. in a statement republican house speaker paul ryan said, i welcome his role at the department of justice.
7:06 am
house oversight committee chairman jason chaffetz said mueller has impeccable credentials and chuck schumer tweeted this, mueller is, quote, the right kind of individual to serve as special counsel. three congressional committees are asking james comey to testify and also want the fbi to turn over all information about comey's conversations with the president. reuters reports this morning that michael flynn and other trump campaign advisors had at least 18 previously undisclosed contacts with russian officials and learning that the trump transition team knew flynn faced legal scrutiny weeks before the innagation. "the new york times" says flynn told transition lawyers in early january he was under federal investigation for secret work as a paid lobbyist for turkey. despite that warning flynn was sworn in as donald trump's national security adviser on january 22nd. flynn was forced to resign on february 13th. major garret is at the white house with more on the story. major, good morning. >> good morning.
7:07 am
the new flynn revelations add to the white house woes and filling the fbi director vacancy has become a conspicuous challenge after two candidates withdrew their names the white house was eg to show the search was not stalled. it brought in new candidates among them al gore's running mate in 2000 joe lieberman. the white house orchestrated this mini parade of fbi director candidates amid a firestorm over the dismissal of fbi director james comey. adding to that firestorm -- >> lock her up. >> reporter: ousted national security adviser michael flynn. flynn reportedly told now white house counsel don mcgahn on january 4th he was under federal investigation. that conversation and another later showed the trump transition team knew about the flynn investigation far earlier than previously reported. the white house is still dealing with the president's oval office disclosure of highly classified intelligence with russian officials. russian president vladimir putin joked about the episode and
7:08 am
called it political schizophrenia. to quiet the controversy he offered to give congress a russian transcript of the discussion. sean spicer said he was unaware of russian tapes at the oval office meeting. >> no politician in history, and i say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. >> reporter: seeking refuge at the coast guard academy wednesday the president delivered a woe is me commencement speech. >> things are not always fair. >> reporter: and told cadets perseverance is key. >> you will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve and that are not always warranted. but you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. >> reporter: the president has grown increasingly frustrated with his senior staff and we are told is actively seeking replacements. one seen he official described all of the russia story as noise and b.s.
7:09 am
but one outside white house adviser said dysfunction at this white house has reached the highest levels, a significant concern, charlie, as the president prepares to be leave tomorrow for his first overseas trip. >> john dickerson cbs news chief washington correspondent. he's also the host of "face the nation" and he joins us from washington. john, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> start with this question, what are the implications of this, because mueller seems to be supported on both sides of the aisle and he has significant power to do something? >> the implication for the president are think about this, he said all these investigations into russia, collusion with the trump campaign, they were a witch hunt, the fbi investigation was -- shouldn't go anywhere. now, this investigation has been re-energized, it's been revalidated, and somebody has been put at the top both republicans and democrats have prised. so this can no longer be knocked down by the president as a partisan witch hunt and also the president now has to be careful
7:10 am
about what he says about it because in the mix, in the story now, is the off thebooks conversation with former director comey about possibly wrapping up the investigation so anything the president says now about it, hs to be seen in that light where people are talking about obstruction of justice. >> john, do you have any information on how the white house is feeling about this latest turn of events? we've heard public statements? >> well you know, they feel whipsawed by what's been of ten days of constant pounding. i mean and a lot of the trouble is self-inflicted. some of it has been newspaper reports about -- about things, but a lot of it also has been just poor planning, the comey firing was handled in a way that just exacerbated lots of problems that couldn't get their story straight, that's been -- that's happened again with the story about what the president may have said in the oval office with the russian foreign minister, so they are feeling pretty battered over there. >> what limitations are there on this special counsel?
7:11 am
>> well, the limitations, looks like there's not that many of them and that you have two things. one, the way the power that mueller has been given looks like he can not only look at the underlying question of russia and the trump campaign but anything that comes up in the course of the investigation he would want to look into. you have his reputation in the way he comports himself, he doesn't put up with nonsense. if he wants to investigate something and anybody tries to stop him, that's not going to be a quiet by him. he's going to do what he wants to do. he has that bipartisan support from both parties, which gives him a lot of political power too. >> i don't want to lose sight of the fact that the president leaves tomorrow op his first foreign trip, his first stop, saudi arabia. he will have lunch with 50 leaders from around the muslim and arab world. ands theres a significant deals that will be announced, right? >> there are significant deals. this is a test not only of the president but of his
7:12 am
administration. the ability to lay out a foreign trip with what they called deliverables, things he can praise and show that he has relationships in these cities. often presidents have recouped when they are in trouble by going overseas, acting presidential, carrying off the kind of set things that a president has do, so this comes at the right time, but as former secretary of defense robert gates said to us, the president has to stick to the script. >> he's also going to make a major speech on islam? >> he is. which will be really fascinating, given the many things he has said over the course of the campaign and some of the things that have been said by some of his close advisors about the religion and his connection to terrorism. >> all right. john, we will all be watching. thank you very much. roger ailes, one of the most influential and controversial figures in cable news died this morning. the founder and long-time chairman of fox news was forced out last year over sexual harassment allegations. anna is with us, anna good
7:13 am
morning. >> good morning. roger ailes was a titan of the broadcast industry helping rupert murdoch launch fox news more than two decades ago. he named the channel one of the most influential tv networks but his career ended in scandal. >> we learned some sad news this morning that our former ceo roger ailes passed away this morning. >> reporter: for two decades, roger ailes helped build fox news from the ground up. >> we've invested a lot in politics from day one. >> reporter: ailes spoke to charlie rose in 2001. >> and we think that politics is really america's favorite indoor sport. >> yeah. >> whether people talk about it, they vote, they don't vote, they all have opinions about the issues. >> reporter: before his time at fox news ailes was a well-known political consultant working with presidents richard nixon, ronald reagan and george h.w. bush. >> you are about to enter the no spin zone. >> reporter: ailes was essential in helping fox news rise to power behind personalities like bill o'reilly who recently left
7:14 am
the network over sexual harassment allegation but was one of its biggest stars for years. >> i am bill o'reilly, thanks for watching us tonight. >> we kind of created people like bill o'reilly. we didn't create him in the sense that bill has been around for 25 years, but we gave him a form to do his thing in prime time. >> the philosophy is to -- in prime time you have to create personalities, is that the idea? >> yeah. you have to create ratings. in the end it's about ratings and if you can't get ratings you don't survive. >> reporter: last year ailes ran into his own trouble at the network at resigned in july in the wake of sexual harassment allegations and a mountain of negative publicity. in a statement ailes' wife said roger was a loving husband, he was also a patriot, profoundly grateful to live in country that gave him so much opportunity. ailes was 77 years old. gayle? >> anna, thank you. this morning the music world is remembering grudge rock pioneer chris cornell. ♪

king and norah o'donnell. president trump responded this morning to the appointment of a special counsel to investigate possible ties between his campaign and russia. the president tweeted this morning, quote, this is the single greatest witch-hunt of a politician in american history. >> the justice department announced that yesterday that the former fbi director robert mueller take over the inquiry. jeff gates has more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that leaked memo from james comey, the former fbi director was really the final straw. you will recall in that memo comey claimed that the president pressured him to end the flynn investigation. that of course is something that the white house denies. by appointing a special counsel, rod rosenstein gives mueller broad authority over the russia investigation. rosenstein said that he determined that a special counsel is necessary in order for the american people to have full confidence in the outcome. mueller is well respected within the fbi and on capitol hill.
8:03 am
he is the only fbi director to serve more than ten years since the law enacting that limit was put in place in the 1970s. mueller have full power to prosecute any federal crimes arising from the russian investigation. in a statement president trump said there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity. i look forward to this matter concluding quickly and doj has pledged to give mueller all the resources he needs and he will need them because this is an fbi counterintelligence investigation that stretches from the u.s. to russia. >> wow. jeff, thank you. retired admiral mike mullen was chairman of the joint chief of staffs from 2007 to 2011 under presidents bush and obama. good morning. >> good morning. good to see you. >> you hear president trump this morning calling this a witch-hunt. the special counsel is bob mueller who is widely respected, correct? what do you make of this? >> i think the selection of mueller is just terrific.
8:04 am
he is widely regarded. he's got a clear independence. got a history of being able to conduct and these kinds of investigations and i think for where we are in it it's really important to get to the bottom of it and there's nobody better suited to do that than bob. >> is there any doubt in your mind we'll get to the bottom of it? >> no i think he will. it's hard to know with all of the discussion on both sides of ssue that that will happen let's say quickly. but i have a lot of faith in him and his background that he'll be able to do that. >> you know washington, you know the players in washington. what is going on with this president? >> i think it's -- it's so polarized that just one issue after another, just keeps coming out. actually i don't have a lot of problem with the president and the administration disrupting d.c. because i think it has not functioned well for a long time. that said, there has to be
8:05 am
process, there has to be a way to get through the issues in some reasonable way. >> but that disruption is mainly about gridlock. >> no, i mean, i think that clearly there is -- obviously one issue after another. and to the degree that the administration feels that it's under siege, they keep generating the crises. >> but admiral, you know national security. >> sure. >> that's where the questions are coming from. >> and are russia. >> and we have to have focus in that area. we have to have consistency in that area. and it seems to be -- there's one self-generated crisis after another coming from the white house. >> but the president said it's his right to have the conversations that he wants to have in the oval office. hr mcmaster said the other day that the conversation with russian officials was wholly appropriate. do you agree with their take on that? >> well, i worry a great deal about revealing intelligence particularly to the russians. if the president has the right to do that, there's no question about that.
8:06 am
but it's -- but apparently incredibly sensitive intelligence and we just have to be really careful about that. and it seemed as if it were released almost instantsdzly as opposed to well thought through. >> beyond russia there's a question of the middle east and the president is going to saudi arabia. what's possible? and what does he have to do? >> well, i think he's got to establish a relationship. and i don't expect a tremendous amount out of this trip in terms of major decisions but having a relationship that's strong and engaging with saudi arabia and other middle east leaders is really critical. >> he'll make a big speech on islam. all the islamic leaders will be there. >> right, it gets to the point of connecting with them. letting them know that we care about them. and having a relationship with them at a time of great concern for them. >> do we need a new change in policy to disrupt the previous policy because of their sense of
8:07 am
whether they can depend on america and those other issues? >> i think that that issue of dependence is absolutely critical. and i won't see a new policy but a re-engagement. i know the arab leaders have felt out left out in recent years and this engagement is really critical. >> how important is it for the white house and the intelligence community to have a good working relationship? right now it seems so fractured and it seems the president today is even doubling down on that. >> i think it's absolutely critical. the president and the new administration has had its ups and downs with the intelligence community. they have focused tremendously on leaks. my own experience in washington the harder you chase leaks the more leaks there are going to be. they need to be on the same page and they need to have confidence and trust. >> why is that important? we all think that, but why is that important? >> because one worry is that if you, you know, continue to press exceptionally hard on the intelligence community and what the president said the other day, that very sensitive piece
8:08 am
of information, the worry is that they might -- the intel community may pull back on what they share with the president. >> north korea. >> toughest problem that confronts us right now. that could go south very, very rapidly. very dangerous. very unpredictable leader. young, with nuclear weapons. i give the administration credit for moving the chinese at least apparently relatively quickly. nobody else has been able to do that. we'll see if the chinese can deliver on making that place stabilizing that part -- >> great to have you at the table. we have breaking news from the world of politics and television. roger ailes died this morning at age 77. fox news reported this earlier today. he led from the beginning of 1996 until he was forced out of his job last year in a sexual harassment scandal. ailes had a huge influence on the development of cable news. before that he played a major role in the election of
