4:08 am
fired his then-fbi director, james comey, in may, 2017, law enforcement officials reportedly began investigating whether the president was working on behalf of russia. "the new york times" reports that fbi officials launched an inquiry after the president connected comey's dismissal to the russia investigation on two occasions. >> i was going to fire comey knowing there was no good time to do it. >> reporter: once in this nbc interview in which president trump appeared to say he dismissed comey because of the russia probe -- >> in fact, when i decided to just do it, i said to myself, i said, you know, this russia thing with trump and russia is a made-up story. it's an excuse by the democrats for having lost an election that they should have won. >> reporter: and the other instance that reportedly alarmed investigators was a letter mr. trump wrote to comey in which he thanked comey for telling him he was not a subject of the fbi's russia investigation. >> there was no collusion. >> reporter: president trump has vehemently denied any wrongful connection to moscow. and so far there has been no
4:09 am
evidence made public that mr. trump was in secret contact with or took direction from russian officials. press secretary sarah sanders fired back against the report writing in a statement, "this is absurd. james comey was fired because he's a disgraced partisan hack. president trump has actually been tough on russia." the counterintelligence probe was wrapped into the russia investigation, but it's unclear if special counsel mueller is still pursuing that angle of it. investigators also reportedly considered opening this aspect of the investigation during the 2016 election, but we're unsure of -- but were unsure of how to proceed with something with such a high magnitude of importance. michelle? >> sounds like a lot still left to unravel. errol barnett in washington. thank you so much. we are now in the midst of the longest shutdown of the federal government in history. at the stroke of midnight, the shutdown entered its 22nd day with no apparent end in sight.

4:11 am
congress should easily do. this is something that the democrats should do. >> reporter: but just a day earlier -- >> if we don't make a deal, i would say it would be very surprising to me that i would not declare a national emergency. >> reporter: on friday he doubled down on democrats to fund his wall. >> they could name it whatever they can name it peaches, i don't care what they name it. we need money for that barrier. >> i'm a mother of five, grandmother of nine. i know a temper tantrum when i see one. >> reporter: a cbs news poll found that 47% of americans say they blame president trump for the partial government shutdown. 30% say they blame democrats in congress, and just 3% blame republicans. >> we have a congress that's being invaded by criminals and by drugs. >> reporter: a majority of americans, 55% of them, believe the situation on the southern border is a problem, not a
4:12 am
crisis. a growing number of republicans are expressing concern at the president trying to bypass congress. >> i think that there's a fair, legitimate question as to whether or not he does have that legal authority. we are going down a road that i think erodes those clear lines of authorities between the three separate but equal branches of government. >> reporter: meanwhile, federal workers wait to get paid. >> federal employees are bearing the brunt of something on their back for a policy initiative that really we don't have anything to do with. >> many of them agree with what i'm saying. and i appreciate their incredible support. >> reporter: before they left washington, congress passed legislation to ensure that federal workers receive back pay. the president says he will sign that bill, but until he and democrats reach a deal, it's unclear when federal employees will get that paycheck, anthony. >> kenneth, thank you very much. let's take a deeper look at these and other developments. we're joined by leslie sanchez,
4:13 am
cbs news political contributor and republican strategist. good morning. >> good morning. >> i'm looking at the headlines in "the new york times" and the "washington post," no end in sight for the longest ever shutdown. the russstigated if trump worked this is a government in deep distress. >> very much so. and that's one thing i think collectively we can agree on. regardless of your political idealogy, there's a lot of turmoil with an unorthodox president. the question is where do we go from here, and strategically who's in the best position. i think people would be surprised. the argument i'll make is that the president strategically is playing the long game. he is setting this up like a very high-stakes poker match where he's holding the straight flush, and the democrats are bluffing. and i say that because if you -- the republicans have learned national security is an issue that moves the dial when you're talking about public sentiment. this week he spent time saying basically game on was the oval address to the nation. secondly, he tagged the negotiation -- you don't want to negotiate with me, walks out almost like a businessman which we know he is as opposed to a
4:14 am
traditional president. third, he escalates this by going to the border. and he's there with law enforcement. >> it's almost like he's thrown a wrench in it. now he's saying the key -- the key piece is the border wall. back during his campaign he said mexico would pay for it. now he's saying i didn't say that. this has got to be some sort of whiplash for the party. >> the party has been frustrated for probably three decades that republicans have never come through on the issue of real border security. so it's not necessarily it was the president's idea. he understood the pulse of the issue. we don't talk -- there's not talk about a broken immigration system which used to be that because nobody really -- there wasn't an appetite especially among conservatives to talk about comprehensive reform, daca, path to citizenship. now you hear the president talking about that. that's almost the olive branch, saying we can negotiate on those terms, and republicans really --
4:15 am
he may be -- president trump may be to immigration what nixon was to china in the sense of bringing both sides, dragging both sides to the middle to do some real reform. i'm not saying it's not going to be painful. >> where does that come? what is it, the bottom line of we get back to the table and get something done? >> if you think of it that the white house is playing strategically the long game, they think time is on their side versus a tactical approach that the democrats are taking. >> why is time on their side? >> because the president knows if he backs away from any type of concession on this wall, so now we're seeing things like, well it could be a different type of barrier. we've gone from concrete to steel, we could go to virtual. he cannot capitulate on the issue. there has to be something there. now he's saying he will not escalate to a national emergency, but we don't know that. that's the question. as time goes on, he may feel i did everything i could, but this was the last alternative for the
4:16 am
country and national security. that's the card you have to watch. >> something's working in the messaging because we didn't even talk about that bombshell "new york times" headline about the president and the fbi investigation. thank you. we are simply out of time. >> thank you. hawaii congresswoman tulsi gabbard will seek the democratic nomination for president in 2020. the 37-year-old announced her candidacy on friday. gabbard is an iraq war veteran who was first elected to congress in 2012. she's also the first member of congress to be born in american samoa and the first hindu member of congress. gabbard caused controversy in 2016 when she had a secret meeting with syrian dictator bashar al assad. police in northern wisconsin are trying to piece together the bizarre abduction of jayme closs three months after she disappeared without a trace following the murder of her parents. the 13-year-old is reconnecting with loved ones this weekend. she managed to break free on thursday and lead investigators to arrest the man suspected of

couch before the police came, i said, hey, i am so happy to see you. so. >> reporter: did she say anything back? >> she said, "thank you." >> reporter: is it hard to talk about that moment? >> just that, reporter: why is? >> i don't know, because i didn't believe she was alive, you know. and being a dad, you know, it's -- it just gets to me when i talk about it. >> reporter: with the 13-year-old's description of the suspect's car, police arrested 21-year-old jake thomas patterson within 11 minutes. according to authorities, he was in his car looking for her. >> he is currently being held on two counts of first-degree intentional homicide for the murder of jayme's parents and one count of kidnapping. >> reporter: what contact did the suspect have with jayme beforehand? >> we're trying to figure out now. we believe it was very -- we believe there was really none. no contact. >> reporter: her parents, james and denise o d in their barron home on october 15th. police received a mostly inaudible 911 call before 1:00

in a special edition of "the dish," we met the chef behind some of the most inventive italian cuisine on both coasts. casey lane is a fourtime semi finalist for the james beard foundation's rising star chef award. "g.q." called his first eatery one of the ten best new restaurants in america, and "food and wine" says lane is dominating late-night dining in l.a. we sat down with him at two of his popular restaurants, both located inside newly built hotels. not bad for a chef still in the early years of his career. you are a little superstitious about all this success at such an early age? >> i just feel out of place most of the time. >> why? >> because we didn't like go the path of -- that everyone's traveled. we didn't do the big-name chef, the big-name restaurant, the big-name company behind you. we kind of just did it
