7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." attorney general jeff sessions is set to appear today before the senate intelligence committee. the hearing comes less than a week after fired fbi director james comey testified about the russian investigation and his meetings with the president. >> we don't know how much sessions will say in the public hearing especially about any contacts we had with russia. >> new questions this morning about the president. he is reportedly thinking of removing robert mueller who took over the fbi investigation of russian election meddling from justice department officials. major garrett is at without with that story. major, good morning to you. >> good morning. in addition the president heads to wisconsin today, the topic, expanding access to apprenticeships. this jobs agenda item likely to be overshadowed by the testimony of the attorney general and the president's apparent toying with the idea of dismissing the newly appointed special counsel.
7:04 am
>> i think he's weighing that option. >> reporter: media mogul christopher ruddy a friend of the president breathed life into rumors mr. trump was thinking about firing special counsel robert mueller. >> i think he's considering perhaps terminating the special counsel. >> reporter: ruddy was reported to have been at the white house monday but in a statement white house press secretary sean spicer said, mr. ruddy never spoke to the president regarding this issue. one of mr. trump's attorneys first raised doubt on the issue sunday when he would not rule out the possibility the president could dismiss mueller. >> the president has authority to take action whether he would do it is ultimately a decision the president makes. >> reporter: adding to the atmosphere of intrigue this tweet yesterday from trump ally newt gingrich saying it's time to rethink mueller as special counsel. in mid may gingrich tweeted mueller, quote, is superb choice. >> when i ran it was make america great again and that's what we're doing. >> reporter: as for the role of
7:05 am
governing the president met for the first time with his fully confirmed cabinet. six months into his first term mr. trump's health care plan faces an uncertain future in the senate while tax reform and infrastructure spending remain in limbo. the president's cabinet nevertheless was nothing if not fawning. >> it's a privilege to serve. >> i can't thank you enough for the privilege that you've given me. >> i want to thank you for getting this country moving. >> i'm tloilds have the chance to help you live up to your campaign promises. >> mr. president, we thank you for the opportunity and blessing you've given us to serve your agenda. >> another item and a disappointment for the white house the ninth circuit court of appeals ruled against the president's most recent travel ban. this morning on twitter norah, the president said the ruling comes at a dangerous time and left two letters out there, suggesting to all of us as we've long expected this spat will end up before the supreme court. >> major thank you so much. nancy cordes is inside the senate hearing room where the attorney general will be
7:06 am
questioned today. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. this is actually the first time that the attorney general will be testifying since he became attorney general. this is probably not the topic he had hoped he would be talking about. he's going to be going before his former senate colleagues who have a lot of questions about him and about russia after comey's testimony last week in this same hearing room. among the things they're going to want to know about, what was sessions' role in comey's firing and was that appropriate given that sessions had recused himself from the russia investigation. an investigation that the president says was on his mind when he fired comey. they will also want to know if there are any undisclosed reasons as comey hinted last week that sessions had to recuse himself from the russia investigation. now, these senators are prepared for the possibility that sessions won't answer all their questions, that he will say that his conversations with the president are private, just as two other top officials, the director of the national security agency and the director of national intelligence did in
7:07 am
a sim laugh hearing last week. but they probably will grill him on what he thinks about this notion of the president possibly firing the special counsel, robert mueller. at least one republican senator on this committee, marco rubio, of florida, said yesterday that he thinks that would be a big mistake. charlie? >> thanks. news chief washington correspondent and "face the nation" anchor john dickerson is with us. >> good morning, charlie. >> we will turn to the testimony of the attorney general in a moment. first this idea of firing mueller? >> well, it's interesting to hear marco rubio because that's what matters. it matters that it would be -- it would be, obviously, a huge deal if the president did this, but the question really then comes back to the congress and would republicans say this is going too far because that's what matters, is if the president does something that starts to have people in his own party leave him. so far they haven't, after last week's testimony they were supporting the president. >> when you turn to the attorney general and his testimony, what do you think is the most important thing we might get
7:08 am
from him that will add to the comey/trump conflict? >> what we get from him, they may not get much from him because on the comey/trump area he will likely say executive privilege and my conversations to the president about this and any area around it are privileged. the question then would be, what about his conversations with comey himself. and that will be interesting. in other words, james comey asserted a lot of things about what the attorney general did or didn't do and the attorney general could stand up for himself or -- in that area we might actually get some information. >> he's a former colleague, how do you think he will be treated today? >> that will be interesting to watch. a lot of deference given to james comey from republicans and democrats last week. some members of the committee see themselves in bright lights and see a potential, you know, star turn for them so how they treat him will be a chance for them to burnish their own sense of their sems. but he's a former colleague and offered to a former colleague. that will be an interesting piece of theater to watch. >> we saw what can clearly be described as an unusual cabinet
7:09 am
meeting yesterday with each of his secretaries praising him. saying it's an honor and blessing to serve him. et cetera. who organized it this way and why did they do this? >> well, it was an extraordinary bath of aduelation. i'm not sure what the organizing principle was. it was clearly a public relations effort to bolster the presidency. what's interesting, not only -- imagine if that were used to talk about the agenda for the forgotten man that the president ran on, to talk about the opioid crisis and things done for the people that elected him as opposed to merely offering praise after praise. >> in fact, the president himself said never has there been a president with few exceptions who has passed more legislation, done more things. that's just not true. there isn't a major piece of legislation that's been passed. >> well, there are -- the pieces of legislation to the extent the big ones that have passed are ones that basically were passed through the congressional review act, which is basically
7:10 am
something that they had preloaded before this presidency. so on his big agenda items they have not come through and that's right, this is another claim that bears some challenge. >> john dickerson, thank you. cbs news will bring you full coverage of the attorney general's testimony in a special report, john will join scott pel he and jan crawford in new york along with our team of correspondents in washington, it's expected to begin at 11:30 pacific, here on cbs and on our streaming network, cbs in. >> day two of jury deliberations in the bill cosby sexual assault trial. it's under way right now. jurors have asked about cosby's 2005 deposition last night. they wanted to reexamine the section where cosby admitted to giving pills to accuser andrea constand. cosby is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault. if convicted he is now 79 years old, he could face up to ten years in prison. jericka duncan is outside the courthouse in norristown, pennsylvania, with the latest.
7:11 am
good morning. >> good morning. the jurors ordered takeout here to the courthouse and deliberated until about 9:30 last night. now they were less considering those closing arguments that revisited themes that we've heard throughout the trial. for example, the defense said that the relationship between andrea constand and bill cosby was romantic. while the prosecution implored jurors to look at this case as one about a woman who was taken advantage of and unable to consent. ♪ >> reporter: bill cosby was upbeat as he walked out of court a late monday night after jurors deliberated for four hours. earlier that day cosby's wife camille arrived in court for the first time. she was calm and appeared to smile as the defense spent nearly two hours making their closing arguments. the defense told jurors that cosby had danced outside his marriage and that his wife deserved better. but that cosby didn't commit a
7:12 am
crime. >> mr. cosby is very confident, he's confident in his legal team. this is the place where you come and get the truth. >> reporter: andrea constand watched from the front row of the courtroom. the prosecution spoke last, they told jurors constand spent a lot more time trying to forget about the alleged assault rather than trying to remember what cosby did to her. last week, one stand testified cosby drugged her with pills and sexually assaulted her at his philadelphia area home in 2004. while the prosecution called 12 witnesses with the defense presented only one, a detective who interviewed both cosby and constand in 2005. his testimony lasted six minutes. throughout the trial, cosby's team tried to weaken constand's version of events and said constand told a, quote, stone-cold lie when she told investigators she didn't contact cosby after the alleged assault. >> we knew that andrea constand's testimony would be a key factor in this case.
7:13 am
how well did she do? >> i thought she provided a very coherent, believable version of events. the problems that the prosecution has is that there are a lot of inconsistencies and those calls after the event can resonate with some jurors. >> reporter: the jury is now back in court. they're deliberating. this trial is moving a lot faster than anticipated. the judge originally told jurors expect to be here at least two weeks. >> jericka duncan, thank you. cbs news legal analyst rikki klieman is here. good morning. >> good morning. the defense argument six minutes at the end what do you make of their strategy? >> they had a witness, only one witness, they called for six minutes. that witness was a detective who had already testified for the prosecution. strategy is clear. it's we don't need to dignify this case with a response. this is a case built on reasonable doubt. we don't have to put on any independent witnesses of our own. we're going to recall the government's witness, a
7:14 am
detective, to show what he left out and what did he leave out? well, it's the fact that andrea constand and bill cosby spent a little time at the foxwoods casino and that that really was to say, see, they're not telling you the truth. >> they also asked to see his deposition from 2005. that's where he called the pills that he gave andrea constand his friends and they need to see the whole context of that. what does that say to you? >> that they're being a thorough, good jury, they are going through the evidence piece by piece. if you have the first day of deliberations, they deliberated for hours. this is not a case of where they all say let's take a straw vote and go home. what they're saying is, let's go through all of the evidence, the way that we should. >> but that in particular, rikki -- >> that in particular, i think what it tells us is this. that andrea constand talked about that. but more important, bill cosby corroborated andrea constand's testimony by saying that he was
7:15 am
going to give her three pills, then he says that they were three halves of benadryl and they were her friends to relax her. one might say, well, he really was there to relax her and make her feel better about a sexual encounter that was consensual or was he really looking to drug her? >> what do you make of the makeup of the jury? cosby at one point said he thought race may have played a role here. what is the makeup of the jury. >> seven men and five women. of those people you have one african-american man, one african-american woman. i think it's always important to look at the whole context. jurors bring life experience into the jury box and into deliberations. so an older person versus a younger person, a black person versus a white person may have very different life experiences. how do we know that? look at the jury in o.j. simpson. >> i know you want to look at the closing arguments for just a second and i really want to talk about both briefly, but the
7:16 am
defense closing argument we have to look at. what you got in michael mcmonagle is an orator of supreme brilliance. this is a guy who literally shouted and he whispered and what he let us know is he used camille cosby to say hey, he's a philanderer but he's not a criminal. and shame on him. >> all right. rikki klieman, thank you very much. we will be watching today. we have breaking news about the release of an american from a prison in north korea. secretary of state rex tillerson has announced that otto warmbier is on his way back to the u.s. "the washington post" says he was medically evacuated in a coma. it is still not clear what has happened to him. the university of virginia student had admitted trying to steal a north korean propaganda banner. he served just over one year of a 15-year sentence. the announcement comes just hours after former nba all-star dennis rodman arrived in north korea. rodman did not say why he went

and established by metlife. i'm charlie rose with gayle king. >> jeff sessions will be asked about any contact he had with russian officials during the campaign. he withdrew from the campaign in march after he announced he did not disclose two meetings with the russians last year. >> and james comey said president trump asked sessions to leave. and the president is thinking of firing special counsel robert muller. major is white house with a response to that claim. >> good morning. sean spicer said the media mogul who floated this idea didn't talk to the president on this
8:03 am
subject. one of the president's attorney said on sunday he wasn't sure whether trump would fire mueller, only that it's a power he would exercise. for his part, ruddy told us this morning he found spicer's statement bizarre in that it did not deny the president was considering ousting the newly appointed special counsel. ruddy also told us something he said to others, memo to sean, don't waste your time trying to undermine one of your few alli s allies. >> is jeff sessions prepared -- perhaps he will testify about jared kushner, the president's son-in-law? >> these two things could come together, charlie, in this way. there have been reports that sessions has vociferously denied he had a third meeting with russian ambassador kislyak had president trump was giving his major policy speech. jared kushner was the co-author
8:04 am
of that speech. the two i'm told rode to the to that speech and did not depart at the same time. there was talk there was an encounter with kislyak and sessions said he was never in the room, kushner was in the room. kushner's activities there could be further scrutinized. he's still working on details with the senate intelligence committee about when he will testify. >> major, thank you. cbs news will bring you full coverage of the attorney general's testimony in a special report. scott pelley will lead our coverage along with john dickerson and jan crawford in new york and our team of correspondents in washington. it's expected to begin at 11:30 pacific here on our cbs news and our cbs network. >> newt gingrich became one of donald trump's outspoken
8:05 am
supporters. he writes "to really grasp trump, you mus understand his doctrine and his psychology, the collection of attitudes and methods he uses to achieve success. that doctrine is fast, aggressive, des ruptive and confounding to the unwary. we're going to talk about your book. you call donald trump one of the most remarkable individuals to occupy the white house. everyone agrees with you on that. let's talk about jeff sessions. word on the street is that you are very good at giving advice. would you give him advice? >> whether the advice is good or not, i'm not sure. >> that's the word about you, mr. gingrich. would you give mr. sessions advice to be more forthcoming with officials? >> i think he will be. >> he has not been to this point. >> his answer was he did not understand the question. >> do you think that's true? >> probably. it was asked had you met with
8:06 am
the russians in your dacampaign role, and the answer was no. and many of them meet with the russian ambassador. it's a courtesy to them. the russian ambassador was one of 9d -- 90 people in a room and went home and said i met with jeff sessions today because it made him look good. >> this is one of the third meetings -- >> this is all hearsay. it's based apparently on an intercept of the russian ambassador saying i met with him. well, pictures of the actual reception don't show the russian ambassador anywhere near sessions and sessions is milling around with 90 people and there's no evidence there was a private meeting. >> you think the president is considering firing robert mueller? >> no. >> why doesn't you thin't you t?
8:07 am
why? why? why don't you think that? >> i think the president is pretty confident all this is going to come out in the wash and ultimately he's still going to be president and all this is going away -- >> when was the last time you talked to him? >> last night. >> wait a minute. last night? >> about? >> he called me because i've been very clear about the fact that mueller hiring four democrats -- his first four attorneys are all democrats, one of them worked for the clinton foundation, he apparently couldn't find a single pro-trump to hire. i think that's a rigged game. i think it's a mistake to pretend this would be a neutral investigation. >> you think they would say they're anti-trump. >> the democrats of its contributions, 97% went to hillary. >> are you saying that's not the best they can find?
8:08 am
>> you're suggesting in the entie country -- >> i'm saying of ones so far -- >> you had a piece about a the president being assassinated and a comedian holding the president's bloody head. i don't give the benefit of the doubt of somebody who can only hire democrats and claims we can trust him. >> it was a great shakespeare play, though. it was an actual play on those -- >> right. >> let me just ask you about your change in tune. in may you tweeted bob mueller is a superb choice to be special counsel. his reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. the media should calm down. and now you're questioning whether he's going to be fair or not. which one is it? >> three things changed my mind. the first was comey's astoni astonishing comment last week.
8:09 am
comey last week said with enormous arrogance, i decided that i would leak so that we would set up a special counsel. the idea of the fbi director and mueller is one of his closest friends, the idea that the fbi director would manipulate the entire system through a leak in order to get a special counsel to me set off alarm bell. mueller's first four hires, all worked for the clinton foundation, all donated to the democrats one has a terrible record, repudiated 9-0 by the supreme court. these are not people who get me comfortable -- >> so you want an independent counsel? >> have mueller commit he's going to hire as many republicans as democrats. >> i don't think you should -- >> you talked to trump last night. i thought you said you talked to him last night.
8:10 am
>> i did. but i don't think that's big news. >> well, i didn't know that. >> i didn't tweet it. >> describe how his mindset is now. people say isolated. people say he's under siege, people say -- >> to the typical author, part of the reason i wrote "understanding trump" is because people have difficulty understanding trump. he's a man of enormous resilien resilience. trump talks about he's about to go bankrupt corporately and personally and ivana calls and says he wants a divorce. he said with enormous intensity, "i always win." she said three times to me, "i always win." i'm not quite sure how yet but
8:11 am
by election day i want you to know. >> you said he aims high and accomplishes what people say is impossible. >> and he has done a lot of that already. >> let me ask you about the business of legislating. he promised to help the forgotten people. he has a republican congress, as you know. you were incredibly productive in the first hundred days. what's wrong with the legislative process >> i think this is one of the areas where trump is going to have to ultimately really rethink the whole approach and become much more like reagan and reaching out of the country and building waves of support. >> but he has a republican congress. >> that's a misnomer. trump had a hostile takeover of the republican party followed by a hostile takeover of washington. i think he underestimated how really complicated this was. and again, part of the reason i wrote "understanding trump "is because i'm sitting there thinking the guy that i watched and studied pretty carefully is
8:12 am
very different from a traditional politician. >> having said all of that, what would worry you did bsh what kind of development would worry you about his survival in office? >> none. look, he's not going to get -- >> i didn't say impeach. >> mayor bloomberg said, he's going to get re-elected. i think he'll be there for eight years. i think in his heart he knows he'll be there for eight years. the power of a president to survive is unbelievable. and i think trump is learning. i think he learns every day a little bit. look at his foreign trip, when i was a tour de force. >> some people argue that the saudi arabia part was good but the european part was not good. >> the european part he accomplished exactly what he intended. >> we also say the presidency is a work in progress. >> and it will be until the day he leaves. >> the book is called "understanding trump."
