white house -- >> i have not spoken to counsel yet. i don't know how they're going to respond. >> according to an associate, comey wants to testify. he has not received any executive privilege notice from the justice department. some legal scholars noted it wouldlegally dubious and the committee itself may resist. for "cbs this morning: saturday," jeff pegues, washington. for more on that, we're joined by a member from politico. good morning. >> good morning. >> he has at least succeeded in diverting attention from the russian probe, hasn't he? >> for now. i think the russian news whenever it goes away, it's only

a temporary change. >> we know this probably plays well with trump's space. what are the indications for moderates, swing voters? how does that play in 2018? >> i think that elevates the issue. i think it makes it an issue in 2018 midterms, 2018 gubernatorial races. it can be hard to make the environment a front and center appeal. with so many business leaders saying stay in it, it's hard no matter what. >> what do you make of the top officials unable to answer the question on whether the president thought it was a hoax? >> it's bizarre. we pushed on it on tuesday, thursday, and friday. over the course of the days they knew we were going to ask the question and they were unable to

device an answer. all we can go on is twitter. >> what about the sentiment inside the white house? we know ivanka trump is not in favor of her father withdrawing but also rex tillerson, doubling down. how is that tenable in terms f white house management and infrastructure if you have such different views on this? >> it seems to score at the end of the day, donald trump is the trump he was in his business career and he's going wo his instincts with ideologically seem to go with steve bannon. so you can have these. we haven't seen it yet.

5:13 am
i think the white house is worried about it. >> matt, every week under this presidency there are 17 different news stories. last weekend we were talking about jared kushner, his special adviser, son-in-law, wanting to reportedly create a back channel to the russians. what do we know about the investigation of jared kushner at present? >> there's still a lot of open questions. that's meetings that took place during the russian transition, unreported contacts, effort with flynn to set up the back channels. nothing looks good. he looks as though he's a person of interest as some reporting says. i mean he's such a high level a aid. everything from infrastructure

western lifestyle, our diet that's causing this. in this report they describe it as a blood pressure less than 140 over 90 and not on blood pressure heart medication and pulse wave velocity. every time the heart beats and contracts it generate as wave that travels down the vessels. if you measure that velocity from one point to one point, that will change. the stiffer the arteries, the faster the velocity. this is how they looked at this in this report. >> i'm interested. only 18% is in good vascular aging, how does that break down for ages sh. >> it doesn't look good as you get older. that found 30% had healthy vascular aging in their 50s. that drops to 7% in your 60s and only 1% in the 70s. >> is improvement possible or

welcome to "cbs this morning: saturday." i'm anthony mason. >> and i'm alex wagner. coming up this hour, could the president block former fbi director james comey's much anticipated testimony to congress next week? we will look at the legalities of so-called executive privilege. >> he's been called a brutally honest comedian. he's about to shake up late night humor with a series next week? and dan performs two songs in our saturday morning session.

two days after pulling out of the paris climate agreement, it's still unclear whether president trump is strike it at app expensive host. the white house rep said, quote, i have not had the opportunity to have that discussion with the president but scott pruitt defended the president. >> the president made a very courageous decision. >> mr. trump said his decision to wit senior he joins us from portland, maine. brian, good morning. >> good morning. let's start first with the practicalities of all this. while there has been a lot of consternation and controversy surrounding the president's
6:02 am
decision, it is inherently a four-year process to get the u.s. out of the paris agreement. what does that mean and why was it arranged in such a fashion? >> that's right and ironically the first day that officially the u.s. could withdraw is the day after the 2020 presidential election. so some time from now. it was structured that way because this agreement was meant with a longvi view in mind, so countries all around the world for the first time in history came together in common cause to try to do something about climate change, so the process to get there was long and the process to withdraw was also intended to be significant. >> brian, the president said he's open to renegotiating this. is that a viable option? >> i think that's incoherent. you have to understand what the actual paris agreement is. the paris agreement is based on voluntary commitments by countries. so nobody outside the united states is imposing anything on our country. we set our own target.
6:03 am
we make our own plan. so if president trump wants to get serious about climate change and wants to put forward his own strategy for how to address this issue, he's completely free to do so under the agreement. i think this notion of renegotiation is largely an attempt to hide behind what is really an act of america retreating from the world. >> brian, what about the fact that the president makes the case for the economic argument that this is going to cost american jobs, what is your response to that? >> i think this is all about economics and the truth is right now around the world there is a race for who is going to be the clean energy super power of the 21st century. this old, outdated idea that somehow we have to trade off between protecting our air and water and growing our economy is just no longer true. the united states has seen consistent job growth for the last 8 years under president obama while reducing our emissions more than any other major economy. so the truth is, this is about economics.
6:04 am
there are more than 3 million americans who work in clean energy and energy efficiency around the country. in towns across the country good construction jobs, saving people money by upgrading the efficiency of their homes, and those are the kind of jobs that are growing faster and the kind of jobs we should want more of. we should be trying to position ourselves to win those jobs in the future and win those export opportunities in the future, not retreating into a defensive crouch and saying that we should stand with syria and nicaragua while the rest of the world tries to get those economic benefits. >> we're seeing some companies and ceos and some states actually make their own commitments to the accords in effect. how much can they actually do? >> well look, you're right. you've seen every major u.s. company come out and say this is the right thing to do and, in fact, when this administration is far to the right of exxon on an issue around climate, you know that something's wrong.
6:05 am
every american business understands that the future is moving toward cleaner sources of energy, and that's true for governors, republicans and democrats, who have those industries in their states and how to protect their citizens from the threats of climate change. i think what you're going to see starting early next week is an increasing volume of voices from governors, from mayors and from ceos saying even this this federal administration is stepping back, we're going to move forward. we're going to continue our plans to reduce emissions, and that will hopefully send a signal to the world that even though this administration isn't with the program, america can still show some leadership on climate change. >> brian, thank you very much for being with us this morning. >> happy to be here. congressional democrats are warning president trump not to invoke executive privilege by blocking the upcoming testimony of former fbi director james
6:06 am
comey. the top democrats on the house judiciary committee sent a letter to the white house that blocking comey's testimony would be an effort to obstruct the truth from both congress and the american people. comey is scheduled to testify before the senate intelligence committee thursday. for more on this we are joined by paula reed who's at the white house. good morning, paula. >> good morning. >> in terms of the invocation of executive privilege, we're getting reports from the new york city saying it's unlikely. >> reporter: we are told by some of comey's associates that he has received no invocation to protect certain conversations. he has publicly discussed these conversations, so at this point, we don't expect that the white house has not confirmed that he will invoke his executive privilege. >> could he, in fact, do this? there's a lot of argument about whether this is a legitimate use of executive privilege. >> he could certainly try.
6:07 am
again, as opposed to describing it as legitimate or illegitimate, it's unprecedented to try to block a former official who wants to talk to congress about an issue of enormous public import. that's really an unprecedented move to try to block something like that. if he tries and comey wants to fight back, it would go before a judge and again it would be unprecedented for a judge to issue a restraining order against him. it's really just new territory. >> you've also been following the story about the president's travel ban, the ban that he would like to impose on travelers coming from six muslim countries. the department of justice has now asked the supreme court to lift a stay on that executive order while the courts decide whether it's legal. what is the latest on that front? >> well, the court has asked the other side, those opposing the travel ban, to weigh in and let the court know what their thoughts are. so far those opposing the travel ban have succeeded in convincing judges that this policy is just a front for the, quote, muslim ban that was promised on the
6:08 am
campaign trail. so the administration, they're not even waiting for the ninth significa circuit to weigh in. they're asking the supreme court to lift that block and to take up the case. >> paula reed at the white house, thanks, paula. tomorrow morning on "face the nation" on cbs, john's guests will include senators mark warner and susan collins, both of whom are members of the senate intelligence committee, and house my majority leader nancy pelosi. it's about 8 minutes after the hour. here's a look at the weather for your weekend. digne designed by hollywood but not for any film. up next, we'll hitch a ride on a

look like. omar took it for a spin at the kennedy space center. >> with six wheels and a distinctive alien design, tourists at the kennedy space center visitor complex have no idea what to make of this extra terrestrial machine. >> that's the reaction that we like. >> reporter: this is a new mars rover concept vehicle. standing 11 feet tall, 24 feet long, and 13 feet wide. >> what takes longer, your design or putting it together? >> reporter: the giant rover is the brainchild of the parker brothers, shannon and mark. the two made their names in hollywood designing and building movie props. most notably, the futuristic motorcycle in the movie "tron." >> so no doors on mars, you have to enter through the back.
6:14 am
>> right. >> reporter: shannon designed the rover. ark and his team did the dirty work, constructing the whole thing in less than five months. >> there is almost nothing on this vehicle that was not built in our shop. i mean, down to every little bracket and tab. nothing was ordered out of a catalog. we built the body, the chassis, the suspension, the wheels, the frame, the interior, the seats, the glass, everything on this vehicle had to be built completely from scratch. >> some of this is just for design, you know, just for it to look cool. other things i thought, you know, this is kind of important to have. >> i'm being very delicate with it, but this is the speed you would end up going on mars. >> reporter: the inside of the rover seats four and drives like an suv. but there's also a mock lab in the back where astronauts could conceivably conduct experiments. some of the features were designed with exploration in mind. >> we needed a good surface area for the rock to climb over, but then we needed a lot of surface
6:15 am
area so when you get into the sand it's not going to sink but it also has these vents in it so it's not going to clog up so it can go through really deep sand, not get stuck and not get clogged up at the same time. >> reporter: the brothers consulted with astronauts when building the machine, but this vehicle won't go to mars. instead, it's on an earth-bound mission to educate future scientists about the red planet. >> you really believe that? >> i really believe that. >> reporter: astronaut john mcbride flew two shuttle missions and sa missions. >> we think the next man on mars is somewhere between 8 and 18 years old, fourth grade through somewhere in college. >> reporter: the folks at the ksc visitor complex hope it will generate enthusiasm like in 2012 when the unmanned you'curiosity
