7:04 am
of dismissing the newly appointed special counsel. >> i think he's weighing that option. >> reporter: conservative media mogul, a friend of the president, breathed life that president trump was thinking of firing special counsel robert mueller. >> i think he's considering perhaps terminating the special counsel. >> reporter: it's reported he was at the white house on monday. but sean spicer said mr. ruddy never spoke the president regarding this issue. one of trump's attorneys raised the issue on sunday when he would not rule out the possibility hat the president code is miss mueller. >> the president has authority to take action. >> 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 and that's what we're doing. >> reporter: as for the role of governing the president met with his fully confirmed cabinet. six months into his first term mr. trump's health care plan face an uncertain future in the senate while tax reform and infrastructure spending relane in limbo. the president's the less was fawning. >> i'm hoping to help you live up to your campaign promises. >> reporter: another item and a disappointment 9th circuit court of appeals ruled against the president's most recent travel ban. this morning on twitter the president said the ruling comes at a dangerous time and left two letters out there, sc suggesting to all of us that this battle will end up before the supreme court. >> all right major thank you.
7:06 am
nancy cordes is inside the hearing room where the attorney general will be questioned. >> reporter: this is the first time that the attorney general wll be testifying since he became attorney general. this is not the topic he hoped he would be talking about. he's 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 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 anyone disclosed 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, he'll say that his conversations with the president are private, just as two other
7:07 am
top officials the director of the national security agency and the director of national intelligence did in a similar 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. >> washington correspondent john dickerson is with us. we'll turn to the testimony of the attorney general in a moment. but first this idea of firing mueller. >> well, it's interesting to hear marco rubio because that's what matters. it matters because it would be a huge dale if the president did this. the question comes back to the congress and would republicans say this is going too far because that's what matters if the president starts doing something having people in his own party leave him. >> when you turn to the attorney
7:08 am
general and his testimony, what do you think? what will they get from him? >> what we get from him -- they may not get much from him because on the comey-trump area he'll likely say executive privilege and basically my conversation with the president about this and any area around this is privilege. the question then is what about conversations with comey himself. that would be interesting. comey asaertd lot of thing about what the attorney general did or didn't do and key stand up for himself. that area we might get some information. >> he's a former colleague. how do you think he'll be treated? >> that would be interesting watch. there was a lot of deference given to koem from democrats and republicans last week. some see a star turn for them. how they treat him is a chance for them to burnish a sense of their own self. he's a former colleague so there's usually some deference offered a former colleague.
7:09 am
>> we saw what can clearly be described as an unusual cabinet meeting yesterday with each of his secretaries praising him. say it's an honor and blessing to serve him. et cetera. who organized it this way and why did they do this? >> it was an extraordinary bath of adulation. i'm not sure what the organizing principle was. it was clearly a public relations effort to bolster the presidency. imagine if that were used to talk about the agenda for the forgotten man that the president ran on, the opioid crisis, things that were being done for the people that elected him as opposed to just merely offering the praise after praise. >> in fact the president said never has there been a president who has passed more legislation, who has done more things. that's just not true. there's not a major piece of legislation that's been passed. >> pieces of legislation to the
7:10 am
extent the big ones that have passed are ones that were passed through congressional review act which is basically something they had pre-loaded before this presidency. pon his big agenda items they have not come through and that's right this is another claim that is challenged. john dickerson thank you. cbs news will bring you full coverage in a special report this afternoon. join scott pelley and along with our team of correspondents in washington. it's expected to begin at 1:30 cbs and jurors deliberations in co giving pills to constand.indecent assault. he's 79 years convicted he could face up to ten yearsprison.
7:11 am
we goo pennsylvania. >> reporter: good g. to th until about 9:30 last night. closing arguments that revisited the trial. for example, the dbetween andrea constand and bill romant. while prso look at this case as one about a woman who was taken advantage of and unable to consent. bill cosby was upbeat as he walked out of court late monday night after jurors deliberated for four hours. earlier that day cosby's wife 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
7:12 am
deserved better but that cosby didn't commit a crime. >> mr. cosby 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 constand testified cosby drugged her with pills and sexually assaulted her at his philadelphia area home in 2004. while the prosecution called 12 witnesses, 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 consand told a quote stone cold lie when she told investigators she didn't contact cosby after the alleged assault.
7:13 am
we knew that andrea constand testimony would be a key factor in this case. how well did she do? >> i thought she provide coherent, beliefable version of the events. the problem that the defense has there's a lot of inconsistencies and those calls can resonate with some jurors. >> reporter: the jury is expected back in court later this morning and this trial is moving faster than anticipated. the judge told the swroors they could expect to be here at least two weeks. thank you. good morning. the defense argument six minutes at the end what do you make of their strategy. >> what they had was a witness, one witness they called for six minutes. that witness was a detective who had already testified for the prosecution. strategy is clear. we don't need to dignify this case with a response. this is case built on reasonable
7:14 am
doubt. we don't have to put on any independent witnesses of our own. we'll recall the government's witness a 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 are not telling the truth. >> they also asked to see deposition from 2005, that's where he called the pills he gave andrea constand his friends and they said they need to see the whole context of that. what does that say they are bei. they are going throughe. t if you have the first this is not a case where they all satrawote and go l's go through t way we >> that in particular what that that andrea morroborated andtie

king and norah o'donnell. attorney general jeff sessions will testify today at a public hearing of the senate intelligence committee. >> senators are expected to ask questions about firing of fbi director james comey and any contacts sessions had with russian officials during the campaign. the attorney general, as you may remember, with drew from the russian investigation in march after news that he did not disclose two meetings with russia's u.s. ambassador last year. >> senators are likely to ask sessions about a meeting where comey spoke him about dropping the investigation of former national security adviser michael flynn. the committee meets after a friend of president trump said the president is thinking of firing special counsel robert mueller. >> major garrett is at the white house with the administration's response to that claim. major? >> reporter: good morning. the white house said through a spokesman sean spicer that the conservative media mogul who floated this idea didn't talk to fortunate directly on this subject and only the president's attorneys could.
8:03 am
one problem, one of the president's attorneys said on sunday he wasn't sure whether trump would fire mueller only that it's a power he could exercise. for his part ruddy told us this morning he found spicer's statement by zarn that it didn't deny the president was considering ousting the newly appointed special counsel. ruddy told us something he said to others, memo to sean don't waste your time trying to why are -- undermine one of your few allies. two things could come together in this way, charlie. there are reports that sessions has denied that he had a third undisclosed meeting with the russian ambassador sergey kislyak. the date april of 2016 when then candidate trump was giving his first major foreign policy speech. jared kushner was a co-author of that speech. the two rode together to that
8:04 am
speech but did not depart at the same time. and there is talk that there was an encounter with kislyak and others. sessions said he was never in that room. kushner was in that room. but those close to him describe it as just a general meeting, not a one on one. kushner's activities there could be further scrutinized. he's still working on details with the senate intelligence committee about when he'll testify. major, thank you so much. 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 and our team of correspondents in washington. it's expected to begin at 2:30 eastern 1:30 central on network. newt gingrich became onef p and outspoken surrogates16 prod. books.ritten more

senators routinely meet with the russian ambassador. it's a courtesy. i think you'll find in this latest allegation that the russian ambassador was one of 90 people in a room and then rode home and said i met with senator sessions because it made him look good. there's no evidence they ever met except maybe walking through the mayflower at a reaccepts. >> the other third undisclosed meeting. >> that's based on -- this is all hearsay but based 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 mull center >> no. >> why do you think that? >> i think the president is pretty confident that this is
8:07 am
all going to come out in the wash and ultimately he's still going to be president and this stuff is going to go away. i think the president, i know because we've talked about it -- >> when was the last time you talked to him. >> last night. >> last night? >> about? >> he called me because i've been very clear about the fact that mueller, hiring four democrats -- the attorneys are all democrats, one of them worked for the clinton foundation. he couldn't find a single pro trump attorney to hire and i think that's a mistake to pretend that this is some neutral investigation. >> you think they would say they are anti-trump. >> all four gave known the democrats. justice department itself their contributions 97% went to hillary. >> is that the best attorneys they could find. >> you're suggesting in the entire country there are no republican attorneys that mueller -- >> perhaps the one he's had so far is the best he could find?
8:08 am
>> look -- >> what would you say -- >> you had a piece a couple of minutes ago of the president being assassinated. okay. we had a so-called comedian holding the president's bloody head. in this environment i don't give the benefit of doubt to someone who can only hire democrats and claim we should trust him. >> it was a shakespeare play. >> it's a great play and i recommend to liberals they look at -- >> okay. let me just ask you about your change of tune because in may you tweeted that 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 it is. >> three things changed my mind. first was comey's comment last week and understanding trump and the whole point of trump. comey says with arrogance i
8:09 am
decided that i would leak so that we would set up a special counsel. now the fbi director robert mull certificate one of his closest friends. he would manipulate the entire system through a leak in order to get a special counsel to me set off alarm bells. second as i said a minute ago mueller's first four hires one worked for the lin furngs all four donated to the democrats, one of them has a terrible record of hiding information from defendants and was repudiated by the supreme court. these are not the kind of people that make me feel comfortable in this environment we'll get serious honest investigation. >> you want an independent counsel. >> have mueller commit he'll hire as many republicans as he hires democrats. let's start with transparency. can we have as many pro trump lawyers as anti-trump lawyers. >> you talked to trump last night. i thought you said you talked to him last night. >> die. i don't think that's big news.
8:10 am
>> i didn't know that. >> i didn't tweet it. >> describe how his mindset is now. people say it's isolated. he's under siege. >> to be a typical author, the reason i wrote "understanding trump" is help people understand trump. trump is a man of enormous resilience. a man -- the opening of his book "the art of the come back" which is psychologically more interesting than "the art of the deal." bees to go bankrupt personallier and corporately. ivana want as divorce. i can get either divorced or find out a way to come back. that's trump. i talked to him two or three weeks before election. he was supposedly down ten points and he said with enormous intensity i always win. >> after the "access hollywood" tape he said that. >> he said that to me three times. i always win. i'm not sure how. by election day i want to you
8:11 am
know. he's now president. >> you said he aims high and accomplishes what people say sim possible. >> he's 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 100 days. what's wrong with the legislative process. >> i think this is one of the areas where trump is going to have to ultimately real rethink the whole approach and become much more like reagan in reaching out to the country and building waves of support. >> but he has a republican congress. >> that's a misnomer. trump had a hostile take over of the republican party followed bay hostile takeover of washington. i think he underestimated how really complicated this was. again part of the reason i wrote "understanding trump" i'm sitting there thinking the guy that i watched and studied pretty carefully is very different from a traditional politician. >> having said all of that what
8:12 am
would worry you about, what kind of development would worry you about his survival in office? >> none. look, he's not -- bloomberg -- >> i'm not saying impeached. >> mayor bloomberg said the other day he'll get re-elected. it horrifies liberals. i think he'll be there for eight years. you cover this. 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 which was a tour de force. >> the european part was not good. >> the european part, he accomplished what he intended. >> the presidency is a work in progress. >> it will be until the day he leaves. >> mr. speaker good to see you. the book is called "understanding trump". it's on sale today. more than suvs fell short of how
