coal mining industrial states like west virginia and pennsylvania. charlie. >> good morning. >> good to be with you. >> what does this do for the president in the political context of what happened last week, this rolling back of environmental regulations? >> it's an interesting time for the president right now. he's facing a lot of different challenges from a lot of different directions and trying to find, frankly a goodwin he can give his supporters after the debacle of this health care law in the last week. he wants to find something he can deliver on very quickly in order to change the narrative. >> what does it do to the environment, climate change and the planet? >> i think this is going to be an interesting question going forward when it comes to these dirt accords. the real question a lot of people have about climate policy is whether we can deliver on the kind of changes we need to achieve and whether that can to be done through government regulation at all. a lot of skepticism on the right
7:10 am
can be achieved through accords like the paris agreement. instead they are looking at technological advancement and other changes in order to increase the kind of health and clarity that we have on the environment. >> there are calls for devin nunes to recuse himself from this investigation. where do you see it's going. is it necessary to have legitimacy? >> you do. right now we do have an investigation when it comes to the russian side of things from the fbi and james comey. when it comes to these type of calls it's more a representation of parcy an interests of democrats. in the past powers of minority in congress to influence administration come from investigative side. that's what's going on here. chairman nunes is someone who has a lot of trust within the republican coalition as being someone who is not a camera hog or someone who chases headlines. that's one of the reasons why he got this job in the first place. >> but there's a lack of
7:11 am
transparency. >> there is at this point on his part. but he has a history of cultivating intelligence sources within the community. he was clear source of the information that related to the effect of intelligence when it came to isis a few years ago. one of the real questions going forward is what really matters here. the question about donald trump's tweet? i don't think it is at all. there's an open question if what chairman nunes is claim cigarette correct if there really was intelligence information that was distributed throughout the agency and he now claims in an interview yesterday to the obama white house yesterday itself that's something that deserves further inquiry and why we need more transparency in this process. >> he hasn't discovered anything and he hasn't shared it with anybody. >> really, you don't think so? >> he showed up at the white house. >> yes. >> and received some information from the source that he's not disclosed either republican or democrat from the committee. if it's that relevant shouldn't he share
7:12 am
of the committee. he's been clear that obama did not wiretap trump tower. nunes has been clear. >> that doesn't have anything to do with what's going on here. he viewed information that's on via available through the executive branch. not available on capitol hill. >> i never heard of that. i mean members of the intelligence committee go all the time up to capitol hill and give them briefings in secure facilities. >> absolutely. i think in this case he has a source within the intelligence community that he claims brought this information to him. he's reviewed it. taken down the document numbers involved. he wants other members of the committee to view it. i think in this case he's very protective of an internal source. but that's less important than having real clarity. >> what do you think this information will tell us? >> ultimately that it may tell us this was not that big of a deal. this was a situation where they, that they had incidental collection of information, perhaps conat
7:13 am
own meetings with the trump transition team, where they expected certain family members to end up within the white house team. we don't know that until we actually have this information and that's one of the reasons we need more clarity from this committee, from chairman nunes sooner than later. >> ben thank you so much. senator john mccain joins us ahead. we ask him about the status of the russian investigation and why he expects a lot more shoes to drop. i'll speak with house speaker paul ryan tomorrow about the health care bill and what's next on the republican agenda. you can see parts of my interview thursday only on "cbs this morning". a manhunt under way for the gunman responsible for an ambush style attack overnight on two florida police officers. fellow miami-dade officers used pickup truck to rush their wounded colleagues to the hospital. bullet holes could be seen in the car where the plain-clothes officers were sitting at the time of the attack. we go to jackson memorial

7:15 am
attacker was hit. >> certainly trying moment for us. we got lucky the officers will survive. >> reporter: police have yet to make any arrests. but last night the director of the miami-dade police department pleaded with the community for help in identifying the shooter. >> we need you now to step up to the plate. these are the people that are causing that havoc in our community and we won stop. this will not deter us from doing our jobs. this will ignite a bigger fire within us to protect our citizens. >> reporter: the officers injuries are not life threatening. police say it's unclear whether the suspects knew whether they were targeting police. either way they are clearly dangerous and right now officers are still searching the area where the shooting happened. charlie. >> the u.n. human rights chief is speaking out against a massive loss of civilian lives in western mosul, iraq. he says at least 307 civilians have died and 273 have been wounded e

8:02 am
the "eye opener" was brought to you by liberty mutual. the president's son-in-law will talk about meeting with officials of the ve b that has deep ties to put and russian intelligent agencies. an undisclosed meeting happened before kushner stood down of an israeli company. at the same time the republican chairman of the committee investigating russia's election interference is under pressure to recuse himself. devin nunes announced he met with an unnamed source to review classified documents. that happened one day before nunes briefed the president on what he learned from those documents. nunes denies his source is part of the white house and said the materials had nothing to do with the russian investigation. the committee's top d
8:03 am
information with other members. >> certainly not normal to go and receive information as chair mapp of the committee that you can't share with your own committee members but share with the president particularly if the investigation involves associates of the president. >> arizona senator john mccain is calling for a select committee to investigate russian interference in american politics and allegations of collusion with the trump kpaen. the 2008 presidential candidate joins us from the capital. senator, good to see you. good morning. let me ask you about what chairman nunes has done. do you think it was appropriate that he went to go view these so-called intelligence reports on white house grounds? >> well i think there needs a lot of explaining to do. i've been around for quite a while and i never heard of any such thing. obviously in a committee like an intelligence committee you got to have bipartisanship otherwise the committee loses
8:04 am
and so there's so much out there that needs to be explained by the chairman and, look, if this is a very serious issue. it all started with russian interference attempt to change the outlook of our election. it turned into a centipede and another shoe seems to drop every few days. >> that's use called for an independent committee because of the seriousness of these eagles. should chairman nunes reveal his source? >> absolutely. i can't imagine why not. and i also believe that the entire committee should be engaged. the reason why the armed services committee, honestly, is successful is we work in a bipartisan fashion. senator bird and senator warner on our intelligence committee and the senate work closely together. they may have differences, but you got to have a bipartisan approach to an
8:05 am
this, if you want to be credible. >> if you look what he's done so far, there are demands by democrats to recuse himself. does john mccain think he should recuse himself? >> i would leave that decision to the leadership of the house committee. excuse me. of the republicans in the house. probably paul ryan. but there's no doubt that -- look it's dominating the news. it is an issue of utmost important vance and something has got to change otherwise the whole effort in the house of representatives will lose credibility. that's just obvious. >> you also said that president trump needs to address this issue. what do you want to hear from him at this point? have you had any face to face meetings with him? would you like to? >> well, i think there's a reception tonight over at the white house. i'm sure i may encounter him there. >> are you invited? >>
8:06 am
>> what would you like to hear from the president, senator, at this point in time? >> first of all, i would like to go back to the latest debacle and that is that when the democrats ran through obamacare they did it on a strict partisan basis. we did not include the democrats in negotiateations on obamacare. obamacare is jim ploweding. we have to address this on a bipartisan basis and we can't wait until people are without health care. now we have to move on to tax reform. i would say first thing he should do is maybe bring that couple trillion dollars back to the united states in a lower tax rate and then you can work on infrastructure, and you can sit down together. we got to have some bipartisanship around here, otherwise we're not going get much done and we got another government shut down
8:07 am
you know. these are not good times. >> can i go back to the russian interference in american elections. you said in some cases this is worse than any single terrorist attack. dick cheney said this morning that in some quarters that would be considered an act of war. what is the next sthoe drop? what do you fear coming out of this? >> it's hard for notice predict because i never would have predicted the chairman of the house intelligence committee doing what he did. but i think that there is more information out there. there is more ties to russia. there is more engagement with false information. there is a lot more associated with russian attempts to effect america, our election but also a lot of other russian activities going on. for example, right now they are attempting to affect the outcome in france. >>
8:08 am
in russia right now? >> it's magnificent. it shows young people particularly in russia are not satisfied with this corrupt thug continuing to run their country and i think it's a great thing. but i also think we're not paying much attention, charlie, to the fact that he's murdering people. having people thrown off balconies. having guys shot who was in ukraine. to use an old phrase, where is the outrage? >> what do you want the president to do and this administration to do more than to show outrage or express outrage? >> sanctions. more sanctions on russia. obviously they tried to subvert the fundamental of democracy and that's a free and fair election. we need more sanctions against russia. we need to provide weapons to you crane. we need more military presence in the balkans. we need to set up a counter to
8:09 am
misinformation campaign and propaganda campaign that they are waging particularly in eastern europe. >> senator, can i ask you, officials reported yesterday that north korea has carried out another test of a rocket engine that u.s. officials believe could be part of a larger program. what needs done? how are you against is the north korean threat? >> i think it's the most urgent threat that we're facing right now because if you have this ruler whose behavior is obviously not rational with a missile, with a nuclear weapon on it that can reach the united states, that's not a risk we can take. we have to prepare for certain eventualities. the key to this is china. china could shut down north korea tomorrow and we should engage some of our relationship with china based on them bringing north korea under control. >> but if that doesn't work, if the chinese will not
8:10 am
fact then they do have deliverable capability to deliver a nuclear missile to the west coast of the united states, would you recommend the president take military action to eliminate that possibility? >> charlie, i think before i would recommend that i would have to know exactly what's going on. but under that scenario that you just described i don't see how it's acceptable to have a situation like that where a person of not rational behavior, he doesn't think like us, to have that kind of capability and with his finger on the trigger, i'm not saying we should go to war with them but we should be accelerating our ability to counter. >> all right, senator, we'll look forward to talking to you again, maybe after the reception tonight. we'll know a little bit more. we talk about partisanship but the republicans have some healing to do amongst themselves. you can have

8:37 am
the federal government to be funding after school programs. and i think that the answer to that question is no. >> 21st century community learning centers were created in 1994 under president bill clinton. then expanded in 2001 under president george w. bush. it serves more than 2 million people each year on an annual budget of $1.2 billion. 550,000 of that goes to the plainfield, new jersey school district. federal funding that drops to zero in president trump's current budget proposal. is there any way the district could fund this program without those federal dollars? >> it would be challenging. of course, we can look to obtain competitive grant funding opportunities but that's not a guarantee. and sacrificing the healthy and so very
8:38 am
experiences for children just doesn't seem worth it to me. >> the billion dollar cuts to 21st century learning center is about the same amount president trump is offering to charter schools. plainfield has five charter schools which helped create more than an dall$8 million deficit. this will make this after school program a critic. critics say charter schools are judged by the best. this is a situation where you have locally these after school programs that make a difference. i think the issue is scaling up. >> nobody denies a difference that they make for the better. he got all as on his report card. no easy answers. >> when you see improvement you have to reward it where it is. >> gotcha. thyo
