7:04 am
years living inside this embassy. his lawyers calling today's decision a total victory, saying he is set to walk free. but the truth isn't that cut and dry. the u.s. is considering their own charges against assange and here in the uk he faces a lesser charge of failing to appear before a court in 2012. if he does step out the metropolitan police say they will move in and arrest him. julian assange posted this smiling image to social media moments after the swedish prosecutor announced they dropped the allegations against him. it brings to an end a case that started in 2010, when assange was accused of sexual assault, but refused to go to sweden to allow himself to be questioned, fearing that he would be extradited to the u.s. to face charges related to wikileaks' 2010 publication of classified american documents. september of 2011 assange shared his mission with "60 minutes". >> if you're a whistleblower and
7:05 am
you have material that is important we will accept it, defend you and publish it. >> reporter: in 2012 to avoid extradition to sweden assange jumped bail and took refuge in london's ecuadorian embassy. despite his apparent seclusion, assange still found voice on the world stage. in 2016 wikileaks published thousands of e-mails from secretary clinton's campaign, something that then candidate donald trump applauded. >> they want to distract us from wikileaks. it's been amazing what's coming out on wikileaks. >> reporter: the administration of now president trump is seeking to clamp down on organizations like wikileaks. >> we will seek to put some people in jail. >> reporter: federal prosecutors are assessing whether to file charges related to the release of stolen u.s. information. >> we are going to step up our effort and already are stepping up our efforts on all leaks. >> reporter: the 2010 document dump leaked tens of thousands of classified files and sensitive

diplomatic cables and led to the arrest and imprisonment of chelsea manning. manning was released from prison wednesday. assange took to twitter just a short while ago saying he will not forgive or forget. meanwhile, swedish prosecutors in a press conference earlier said technically they could reopen this case in the unlikely event that assange returns to the country for questioning. >> jonathan vigliotti in london, thanks. sources tell cbs news a relationship between the russia and the trump presidential campaign developed long before the election. federal investigators are looking at several campaign associates. and there is new information this morning about former fbi director james comey's efforts to stay independent of the president. jeff pegues is at fbi headquarters in washington, jeff, good morning. >> good morning. cbs news has learned during a period between election day and the inauguration, u.s. intelligence officials were concerned about information
7:07 am
being shared illegally with russian operatives for months investigators had been tracking communications that they felt were cause for alarm. >> it's a rigged system. >> investigators are looking into whether the trump campaign may have been coordinated with the russians as early as april 2016. sources say investigators found multiple contacts, considered a cause for concern. a former u.s. government official tells cbs news, you could see the hallmarks throughout, including conversations picked up by electronic intercepts. the fbi is scrutinizing former trump campaign chairman paul manafort, foreign policy adviser carter page and former national security adviser michael flynn. >> he saw his role as protecting the fbi from the white house. >> reporter: benjamin witis, a friend of former director comey, said comey told him how the president put him on the spot two days after the inauguration. >> he stands in the part of the
7:08 am
room that is as far from trump as it is physically possible to be. >> oh, and there's -- james. >> trump singles him out in a fashion that he regarded as sort of, you know, calculated. >> he's become more famous than me. >> comey was completely disgusted by the episode. he thought it was an intentional attempt to compromise him in public. >> reporter: five days later on january 27th at a white house dinner the president allegedly asked comey if he would pledge his loyalty. on february 13th, flynn was forced to resign after misleading vice president pence about his contacts with the russian ambassador. the next day, president trump spoke to comey alone in the oval office. comey wrote a memo detailing how he says trump indicated he wanted him to drop the federal investigation. in recent days, the pressure has been on the former fbi director to make those memos public and to testify again on capitol hill
7:09 am
but some members of congress indicating that since the appointment of the special counsel, that may complicate efforts to bring comey back on capitol hill to answer questions again. charlie? >> thanks, jeff. president trump is fighting back against a special counsel who is taking over the russia investigation. the president said yesterday, the appointment of former fbi director robert mueller, quote, hurts our country terribly. he claimed it shows a very divided country. >> president trump leaves today for his first foreign trip in office. he lands in saudi arabia tomorrow. over the next week he will also visit israel, the vatican, brussels and sicily. margaret brennan will be traveling with the president but right now at the white house. margaret, good morning. >> good morning. well at a sometimes chaotic joint press conference with colombia's president, president trump described himself as a victim of a witch hunt. >> there was no collusion and everybody, even my enemies, have said, there is no collusion. >> reporter: president trump said the appointment of special
7:10 am
counsel robert mueller, now leading the fbi probe. >> russian election meddling is divides the country. >> i respect the move but the entire thing has been a witch hunt and there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign. but i can always speak for myself and the russians, zero. >> reporter: the president sharply dismissed democrats' claims he may have interfered in the investigation. >> i think it's totally ridiculous. everybody thinks so. >> reporter: mr. trump strongly denied ever urging former fbi director comey not to pursue an investigation into former national security adviser michael flynn, who admits misled the white house about his contacts with russia. >> did you urge former fbi director in any way, shape, or form to close or to back down the investigation into michael flynn? and also, as you look back -- >> no. no. next question. >> reporter: since dismissing comey last week, the president has personally interviewed several potential replacements. he announced thursday a decision
7:11 am
was coming. >> we're very close to an fbi director. >> when are you going to name one? soon. >> reporter: on capitol hill the possible nomination of former senator joe lieberman, a democrat turned independent, is not expected to gain bipartisan support. >> i think it's a mistake to nominate anyone who has run for office. >> reporter: lieberman lost favor with democrats in part because of his 2008 presidential endorsement of republican senator john mccain. >> one of the most wonderful man i have ever known. he has enormous prestige and affection on both sides of the aisle. >> reporter: a new fbi director could be selected as soon as today before president trump departs on that big international trip. his nine-day, five stop visit begins in saudi arabia and it includes a tour of the world's great three religions. >> margaret, what are the goals for this big international trip, his first one? >> well this has been months in the making. and it was intended to really try to reassure allies that
7:12 am
president trump's america first policy doesn't mean abandoning allies and that the president is going to make a big speech in saudi arabia, which the white house says is meant to unite the united states with its muslim allies against extremism, but the president will also then go on to italy, and to belgium. he will face some tough questions about plans to increase troop levels in afghanistan and whether he will stick with some of the international agreements like the iran nuclear accord and the paris climate change agreement and so far, the president doesn't have solid answers to those questions because the policies are still being formed. >> margaret, thanks. travel safe. the deputy attorney general apparently knew about president trump's plan to fire fbi director james comey before writing a memo recommending his dismissal. senators said rod rosenstein indicated that during a closed-door briefing yesterday. his memo criticized comey for how he hand ltds the
7:13 am
investigation -- handled the investigation of hillary clinton's e-mails. the white house said president trump based his decision to fire comey on that memo. rosenstein will brief members of the house later today. cbs news chief washington correspondent and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is with us. >> good morning, charlie. >> where are we in all of this. >> oh, charlie. >> charlie. >> where are we? okay. we are -- the president has created a condition where something he called a witch hunt has bipartisan support. robert mueller has been praised by republicans and democrats. that track going on. the president is trying to get the track and his team are trying to get back to what they should be talking about, his domestic agenda, and he's about to take this big foreign trip they've spent a lot of time working on and gives him an opportunity to put himself on the world stage and put forward his agenda for the world. >> are we going to see three investigations at the same time, the house, senate and special counsel? >> that's right. you have house and senate intelligence committee and the judiciary committee and they want a piece of this to talk to
7:14 am
james comey, want to see memos, more than one, and hear from him as well and then, of course, you have the special counsel which will always be out there bouncing along new possible revelations, but also reminding everyone that the president has now -- has this narrative or conversations he had with comey which are different and separate and a different problem than the russian investigation. >> and tapes? >> well are there tapes and how detail ready these memos. because the key question is did the president know what he was doing or an inexperienced guy saying to comey can you stop being so focused on this. if it's true from the papers director comey kept telling him we shouldn't be having these conversations and he persisted that gets you into a condition where the president is knowingly doing something rather than just being an inexperienced guy who doesn't know the particularities of the way you're supposed to behave. >> the president seems to be at odds of rod rosenstein in terms of the importance that rod rosenstein wrote in the firing of james comey. >> well the rosenstein memo, which is the one that first the white house said this is why the president made his decision and now we've learned the president
7:15 am
was going to do this anyway and the reason that's a problem is that it's not only a ragged story, why did you do this, mr. president, but puts rosenstein on the hook a little bit. his reputation was referred to several times in explaining why this really had nothing to do with politics because he is supported by republicans and democrats. but then, when the -- it looks like the letter might be a cover for another reason that comey was fired, that's what creates credibility problems that goes outside the president and spreads to his administration. >> by all accounts this has been a bad week for the trump administration. what are you hearing from his supporters about the job he's doing? >> his supports feel he's doing a great job swinging and fighting for them. >> no chinks in the armor there? >> not really. one, they see the challenges he has as more proof that there's this swamp he's trying to fight through. they hear him when he says, look, i got this deal with china to get beef sold in china for the first time since 2004. they think the press is against
7:16 am
him and the reason this is important, is that it's a feedback mechanism. the president hears this and says these are the people that supported me, got me into office, if i'm okay with them i can continue what i'm doing, forget all this. >> on the other hand within the white house we keep hearing reports there will be a staff shakeup. >> right. and then talk to other people in the white house who say all those stories are overblown. in the old days covering administrations the minute they tell you they're overblown is when the staff shakeups happen. it's hard to say but a lot of talk about that and from our own reporting and so i suspect something is coming. >> i never think it's good when the word embattled is used in front of your name. the clock is ticking. always good to see you. see john on sunday op "face the nation." john talks with democratic senator dianne feinstein ranking member of the senate judiciary committee. >> the man accused of driving into a large crowd in new york's times square is charged with second-degree murder. richard rojas is facing five
7:17 am
counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and 20 counts of attempted murder. the bronx man smashed into the busy area before noon killing a teenager. police say he was going south on seventh avenue and made a you-turn and jumped a curb and drove down the sidewalk for three blocks. jericka duncan is near where his car came to a stop. jericka, good morning. >> good morning. you can see the car has been removed. one eyewitness said this car was barreling down the sidewalk like a bolling ball striking several people in its path and only came to a stop because of the steel barricades behind me. some of the video we're about to show you is graphic. part of the rampage was captured on surveillance video. you can see the red honda quickly make a u-turn and take off down the sidewalk. after mowing down 23 people, the car then crashed into barricades, meant to stop
7:18 am
runaway vehicles. >> the girl next to me is on a ground in a heap and clearly dead. it was just speeding as fast as it could. >> reporter: alyssa elseman, an 18-year-old girl visiting in frisch began was killed. her 13-year-old sister was also injured, but survived. >> we have multiple people run over. multiple m ambulances. >> reporter: the alleged driver richard rojas tried to flee the scene, bystanders helped police capture him. >> they said get him. he got away from three of them and i tackled him. >> reporter: so far investigators do not believe it was an act of terrorism. >> that being said, we are reinforcing key locations around the city with our anti-terror units of the nypd. >> reporter: rojas, a u.s. citizen, has had prior run-ins with police. earlier this month, he was arrested for menacing. >> in 2008, he was arrested in queens for drinking and driving.
7:19 am
and also in 2015, he was arrested in manhattan for drinking and driving. >> reporter: rojas served in the u.s. navy from september 2011 to may 2014. in 2013, he spent two months in a navy prison after being court-martialed. police sources tell cbs this morning that rojas said he wanted to die, that he heard voices, and that he did it for god. he did pass a breathalyzer test by police sources tell us the preliminary test showed he had pcp and marijuana in his system. >> thank you very much, jericka. fox news founder roger ailes is credited with helping presidents win elections and transforming the media landscape. ahead, a look at the biggest and most consequential legacies of the media,,

♪ good morning to our viewers in the west. happy friday on may 19, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." president trump is preparing to make the first overseas trip, but political troubles could follow him there. ahead, what the president stands to gain or lose. but first, here's the "eye opener" at 8:00. >> it's a total victory saying he's set to walk free, but the truth isn't that cut and dried. >> election day and the inauguration there's concern about information being shared with the russians. >> president trump described himself as a victim of a witch hunt. >> so where are we in all this?
8:01 am
>> charlie, well, something he called a witch-hunt has bipartisan support. robert mueller has been praised by democrats and republicans. they're trying to get back to what they should be trying to talk about which is the domestic agenda. >> one eyewitness said this car was barrelling down the sidewalk like a bowling ball. it only came to a stop because of the steel barricades behind me. >> the king of the netherlands has revealed he's been leading a second life as a commercial airline pilot for 21 years. how did no one notice? or maybe people did notice, it's just that no one can take you seriously after you get off a flight from amster dam. like, dude, the pilot was the king. okay, chaz, okay. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and alex wagner. wikileaks founder julian assange is claiming victory in one of the legal cases against him. he showed himself smiling this

8:03 am
america first does not mean abandoning allies. particularly saudi arabia and israel. relations with both of those countries were damaged during the obama administration, in part due to that nuclear deal with iran. but president trump has his own fence mending to do with the muslim world given that harsh campaign rhetoric. white house officials say he's going to emphasize that he does not view the west as at war with islam. there's going to be sweeteners like a $109 billion arms deal with saudi arabia. the administration has dropped many of those human rights based objections to certain weapon sales and trump's son-in-law jared kushner shepherded these negotiations even personally calling weapons manufacturers. in turn, saudi arabia plans to invest about $200 billion in the united states over if next four years. when the president meets with european allies at nato and then in italy, he'll still have
8:04 am
unanswered questions about whether he's going to stick with international agreements like the iran accord and the paris climate change deal. he's still deciding on that. we know that on this trip, the president is not expected to deliver on that campaign pledge to move the u.s. embassy to jerusalem when he visits israel at least not on this trip. >> thanks, margaret. ian bremmer is the president of the eurasian group. what are the risks and the opportunities on this trip and what does the president hope to accomplish other than getting away from domestic problems? >> i think this is a very well put together trip in terms of trump's capabilities. right? almost any president goes to canada or mexico the last seven have all gone to canada or mexico. he's going to saudi arabia. but the saudis and the israelis are the two leaders in the world that most wanted to see the back
8:05 am
of president obama. right? in terms of american allies. so they're really happy to see trump. this is not -- these aren't going to be easy trips. they're going to announce all sorts of new cooperation. they'll be physically warm. a lot of pomp, big celebrations. they'll make some announcements. new arms deals, for example. new cooperation on security. trump just had another bombing run against some allies of assad yesterday. this shouldn't be hard, but as you say, this is kind of a disaster. he steps on himself constantly. he's now down that domestically with the enormous scandals that aren't going to go away while he's on this trim. -- this tip. he can't help himself with the tweets. he's likely to say some things that are embarrassing and off camera things that will likely become on camera.
8:06 am
this is his first trip as president to the islamic world. he's going to be giving a speech where i'm sure he'll say many times radical islamic terror, something that obama wasn't willing to say. god forbid we have a terrorist attack against americans in the region while he's doing that. clearly, that would be a very attractive target for terrorist organizations. i think we have to be cognizant of that risk. >> what will be the definition of success on this trip for you? >> i think if we can get through the media cycle. >> ian, it isn't that. is there something concrete that you can say that was a good trip, he did well? >> i think the fact that he has foreign policy advisers around him that have gotten him to normalize on a bunch of things. remember how china went. before the big china meeting, he was saying, you're manipulating currency, i might be working with the taiwanese. afterwards, hey, we're a buddies now. what we need on this trip is that kind of a showing that when
8:07 am
the president is in a meeting with a major leader -- no, we're working with nato now. i know i said wanted a weak europe, but i'm okay with macron. i recognize the transatlantic relationship is important. again, with saudi and with israel, you know, as long as there are no massive distractions, these are meetings set up to go well. and with the pope, i'd say don't do a press conference. >> they had a little bit of a spat. >> they did, but that was mostly on trump, right? the pope is not going to try to embarrass trump in that meeting. that could go -- >> you say saudi and israel are layups for this president but you point out the risk that he has with a lot of the european leaders. you don't think there's a certain amount of trepidation if you are a member of nato or if you're a member of the eu looking at this president and this surfeit of scandals he's dealing with here in the u.s.? >> rex tillerson said yesterday, hey, outside the united states people aren't -- they're too because circumstances not thinking about this.
8:08 am
i can tell you that's not remotely plausible. every foreign minister i have met with, spoken with, since trump has been elected, the first thing they ask me, what the hell is happening with your president? right. so they're extremely concerned about it. but at the same time, you know, it's not like nato has a plan "b" instead of the united states. the americans are doing the lifting. >> this is clearly an opportunity for him to say to islam leaders in all those countries, i am not anti-muslim. >> yes. >> in a speech as well as meetings with them and also try to bring them in to do something to bring out israelis and the palestinians together. >> good luck on that one. >> okay. but, but they're coming together for this. and they both have a stake in it. >> he said jared is in charge of making the peace -- i'm desperately skeptical that anything could be done given the limitation on the palestine. i believe that when john kerry made his ill fated 12 trips to make that happen. >> but they're more committed to a relationship with trump than
8:09 am
they were to john kerry. >> the israelis certainly are, i accept that. >> the saudis too. >> i think it's too entrenched. a step too far. if trump can get through the meetings. this is -- i don't think this is a president that we're saying, can we get a nobel peace prize from? can we have a good trip? i think as question saw with xi jinping he has real vulnerabilities on islam. there's a lot to be said for his own base in going after i'm going to make you secure. the saudis are a good place to do that. the saudis don't have to worry about internal sort of ratings whatsoever. there aren't demonstrations at all. they'll make it a very comfortable place, he'll give a big speech. >> ian bremmer, thank you. . as president trump prepares for the trump, the iranians have voting for a new president. the two leading candidates have different views on the west and the 2015 deal to limit the
8:10 am
nuclear program. labz, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, voting is well under way here in iran. long lines outside the polling stations. to some extent this is a referendum on the nuclear deal. millions of iranians who are very much in favor of it. they wanted it to bring better relationships with the united states and the rest of the world. along with the tide of foreign investment which has not so far materialized. conservatives though think it was a sellout and that iran should never have accepted any limits on its nuclear program. there's little reliable polling data here in iran, but president rouhani is expected to win by a narrow margin. if he doesn't and the hard liners become president, the united states in that case could certainly expect a more hostile iran. especially as the trump administration has already made it clear that it neither trusts nor likes the government here in

here is kelp. >> reporter: he calls the sea greens the next food trend. you're kidding, right? according to one laboratory test, kelp, a variety of seaweed has more iron than beef and is low in calories. >> come on. >> oh, wow. >> reporter: fresh kelp grows well like weeds in the fallen winter months and is then harvested in the spring. >> so we have anchors going down to the bottom just with ropes. then across eight feet below the surface we have got a horizontal rope. then we grow our kelp down from there. our job is to let it get enough light and enough nutrients so we keep it at the right height. that's kelp farming. >> reporter: smith leases 20 acres of ocean from the town of branford, connecticut. his start-up cost was 20 grand. he says in a good year he can reap about 20,000 pounds of kelp per acre. how much will you yield in terms
8:35 am
of profit? >> so the net is about $130,000 a year. we're able to get about $1 a pound off the dock. >> reporter: for centuries, fishermen have made a living off the coast of maine through the mid-atlantic region. but scientists say climate change and overfishing have transformed the fishing industry. >> the oceans are just changing. we need to diversify. >> reporter: smith said kelp farming is a sustainable solution for the environment. >> it takes zero input to grow this. no fertilizer, no fresh water. what we're growing we're soaking up nitrogen and carbon. we call it the culinary equivalent of the electric car. >> reporter: bryn is expanding the processing plant in new haven, connecticut. >> where the magic happens right here. this is where we make our kelp noodles. >> reporter: fresh kelp is first blanched. wow! >> look at that color.
8:36 am
>> chartreuse. >> reporter: then cut into strips. orders for these are ten times more than what they can harvest. >> the whole idea here is to use this processing plant as the funnel into new york city. so we have farms from maine all the way down the coast. and then their product comes through here. we process it and then truck it out. >> reporter: he trucks it to restaurants where this chef creates kelp dishes that are new found delicacies to his customers. what is it called? >> kelp bolognese. >> reporter: he is turning the tables on how people see seaweed. he does make this with a twist. this is better than i thought it would be. >> it's simply delicious. >> reporter: bren smith and his nonprofit organization greenwave have helped establish ten kelp farmers this year and he hopes to sign on about 15 more by next year.
8:37 am
the goal is to get fresh seaweed sold in supermarkets and on menus of really popular restaurants. >> how does it taste? >> it tastes great. two completely different tastes. briny, crunchy, yummy. when they blanch it, it loses that salty taste. >> all right. >> it's the perfect pasta. you have to try it. >> kelp is the new kale. >> girl, let's go. >> me and my baby are ready. >> oh, the baby -- i don't know if the baby is ready for kelp. >> culinary equivalent of the electric car i like that. always good to have you here. actress gina rodriguez, she's the breakout star of "jane the virgin.",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
