7:02 am
>> reporter: good morning. jeff sessions recused himself from the russian investigation. but he will be in the middle of it. this is where he'll be testifying. what's unique about today, james comey had his issues with the president, jeff sessions is a fierce loyalist. and as for the special prosecutor robert mueller, is he the next man to go? this morning, the white house is pushing back. with the russia inquiry heating up, this stunning assessment about the future of robert mueller from one of president trump's close friends. >> i think he's considering perhaps terminating the special counsel. he's weighing that option. >> reporter: those comments from chris ruddy to pbs, shortly after ruddy was spotted leaving the west wing. sean spicer telling nbc news, mr. ruddy never spoke to the
7:03 am
president regarding this issue. with respect to this subject, only the president or his attorneys are authorized to comment. earlier monday, a similar statement from another trump ally, newt gingrich. >> what republicans need to focus on is closing down the independent counsel. he's not independent. >> reporter: adam schiff firing back on twitter. the president fired bob mueller, congress would appoint bob mueller. don't waste our time. all of it, the backdrop, as attorney general jeff sessions gets ready for a grilling against his former senate colleagues this afternoon. under ooet and in public. he is expected to respond to james comey, who raised questions about sessions' role in the russia inquiry. >> we were aware of facts i can't discuss in an open setting, that would make his engagement in a rush investigation problematic. >> reporter: it will be sessi
7:04 am
sessions' first time in the hot seat since his confirmation hearing in january. >> i did not have conversations with the russians. >> reporter: he raised flags by not revealing two meetings with the russian ambassador, sergey kisly kislyak. now, there's thoughts there was a third. >> i think the reason he's testifying is to set the record straight in his own mind. i'm surprised he is. >> reporter: president trump convening his cabinet on monday. there, an unusual display. the officials bathing their boss in pray praise. >> greatest decision of my life is serve you, the president. >> we consider it a blessing to serve your agenda. >> reporter: the senate's. democrat posting this online. >> you have great hair. nobody has better hair than you. >> before we go further, i want to say thank you for the opportunity and blessing to serve your agenda. >> reporter: now, back to jeff
7:05 am
sessions' testimony today. there was a rare closed door meeting with the head of the security agency. that physicfollowed a meeting wy johnson, who oversaw a lot of efforts in the election to keep it safe from russia. the president trying to deflect this morning. he's on twitter. he writes, the fake news media has never been so wrong or so dirty. purposely incorrect stories for an agenda of hate. sad. savannah, back to you. >> peter alexander, thank you. pete williams is taking a closer look at the key questions the attorney general could face today. pete, good morning. what can we expect? >> for his first appearance before congress since becoming attorney general, aides say he wanted this hearing to be public. he's eager to respond to things comey said last week. sessions did nothing when comey asked him to prevent more
7:06 am
private meetings with comey and trump. and he wants to answer questions that's come up over the last several weeks. >> how much can sessions say, if anythi anything, about the investigation into russia's meddling in the election? >> i doubt he will say much about that because he's recused. he took himself out of that investigation. but one question might be, why did he take part in the firing of comey as fbi director? and his aides said that sessions made that decision based on comey's overall performance. not just on the russia investigation. the deputy attorney general's memo mentioned the handling of the clinton e-mail case, carson. let's bring in maine senator, angus king, one of the senators that will be questioning jeff sessions. he is the senator from maine. i'm sure you heard that a friend and confidant, said that the
7:07 am
president is considering firing bob mueller. does that report concern you? >> the mechanics are important. the president cannot fire bob mueller. he must request that the attorney general do so. and the acting attorney general has to use his discretion whether or not to take that action? >> and if he did so? >> if he fires him, it will be a huge mistake. this is an administration that says they want to get this over with and put it behind them. and if they want to put it behind them, the best way is to cooperate in the investigation and let ice take its course. if there's nothing there, as the president keeps asserting, why do you keep impeding it by threatening, anyway. in this case, somebody threatened to fire the special coupl counsel. let's get this done. >> would there be grounds? i think the argument on the
7:08 am
president's side of it, would be along the lines of conflicts of interest. james comey has a long history with director mueller. and comey went out of his way, i counted five or six times, where he heaped praise on mueller. does he have a conflict there? >> everybody he preys heaps pra mueller. everybody in washington respects bob mueller. he's a career professional former head of the fbi, really outstanding individual. it would be hard to argue that somehow he's suddenly looks like he's biased. of course, he knows jim comey. he was the former director before comey. >> let's talk about jeff sessions before your committee today. what's the number one question for him? do you think he has explaining to do? >> there's two main questions. you hit it on the head in your
7:09 am
opening. number one, what contacts did he have with the russians in the election, before he was campaign surrogate for president trump. and what role did he have in the fires of james comey, at a time when he was supposedly recused from the investigation? the president said the russia thing was on his mind when he fired comey. should jeff sessions been involved in that decision? those are two main areas. i know there's many other questions. nose are two of the areas we'll be looking into and giving jeff sessions a chance to give his side of the story. >> and very quickly, sir, because i'm out of time. the president said he would be willing 100% to testify under oath. would you like to see him before your committee? would that be possible? >> i don't think that's a good precedent to bring a president before congress under oath. i think that would be bad for the country in the long run. it's not the way we do things.
7:10 am
i think we're going to get to the bottom of this. but the best thing, rather than enator king, good tstations. a lot more to g most urgente korea a few hours prompting speculation dennis rodman arriving to pyongyang on his fifth trip to north korea. hours before telling reporters why he's going. >> have you spoke to president trump at all? >> i think he's happy about the fact that i'm over here, trying to accomplish something that we both need. >> what are you trying to accomplish, sir? >> trying to open a boadoor. >> reporter: his last trip controversy. he sang happy birthday to kim jong-un and said that kenneth bae deserved a 15-year sentence.
7:11 am
bae was freed the same year. why rodman has called kim jong-un a friend for life, jim mattis is calling north korea, the most urgent of security to the u.s. earlier this year, president trump said he would be willing to meet kim jong-un, saying this. >> he's a smart cook by. >> reporter: trump has praised rodman, who appeared on "celebrity apprentice" in 2013. the former basketball star denying he was hired to free the four americans in north korea. >> that's not my purpose right now. >> reporter: rodman also said this is about bringing sports to north korea. this morning, a senior state department official says they're aware of rodman's visit. he's there as a private individual and they wish him

7:13 am
consta constand, listened as the defense presented its case in under six minutes. calling just one witness. in a fiery closing statement, the lead defense attorney highlighted inconsistencies in constand's story. arguing her relationship with cosby was romantic. and what happened the night that constand said she was drugged thaassaulted was consensual. cosby had telling the r marriage, you hav f him, plainas nt mcgoman gal si romantic? you should be insulted by that. it's y'statements sealed his guilt. over a sexual conduct. > reporter: he left spokespers mean cosby >> i know you will be watching the courte oakland
