week. now both sides want to know why sessions was involved in comey's firing. we haven't heard whether this hearing will be open or closed but signs point to it being taken behind closed doors, which is going to happen over democratic objections. >> first i think he should be sworn under oath. on "face the nation" senate minority leader chuck schumer -- >> did he interfere with the russian investigation before he recused himself. the president said comey was fired over russia. >> he had been scheduled to testify before a different committee tomorrow, but he announced the switch to the intelligence committee this weekend after it became clear that he was only going to get grilled about his role in comey's firing. >> he had already recused himself and suddenly he be was
president that comey be fired. >> sessions recused himself from the russian investigation over three months ago after admitting he had not disclosed two meetings with the russian ambassador in 2016. last week it was suggested there might be more to it. aware of can't discuss in an open setting that would make his continued engagement in russian meetings problematic. >> would you be willing the give your version under oath? >> 100%. >> republican lindsey graham urged the president sunday, don't do it, stating, quote, he might be his own worst enemy. >> you might be the first president to go down in history because you can't stop talking about an investigation that if you were just quiet would clear you. they point out that his
comey to describe the clinton e-mail probe as a matter rather than an investigation. even dianne feinstein described that request this weekend as something, charlie, that made her queasy. >> thanks, nancy. independent member angus king is a member of the senate intelligent committee from brunswick, maine. good morning. >> good morning. glad to be here with you. >> what do you think he hopes to ask when he appears before the senate intelligence committee? >> there are several things we want to look at. one is he certainly was a member of the trump campaign. what were his contacts if any with russian officials during the period of the campaign. i think that's a question we need to ask. secondly, a question i'm interested in is what role did he play if anything, again, in the comey firing because at that point he was supposed to b
recused from this investigation, have nothing do with it and to the extent the comey firing had something to do with the investigation, i think that's an area we need to explore. >> that's something. do you believe there might have been a third meeting? what are some of these concerns? >> well, i don't want to comment on that. as you know, mr. comey, director comey, said we need to talk about some of these things in closed session. so i can't confirm whether there were other meetings. i think that's obviously one of the things we want to ask mr. sessions. by the way, my inclination is this should be in an open session. the only reason you go into a closed session is if it's national security, and i don't believe we're talking about national security issues here. if we get into national security issues, we can cut off that line of questions and defer it to a closed setting. but my starting point
the american people need to understand this whole issue. and the more of these sessions we can have in public, the better. >> senator king, how is all of this sitting with you? we've had time to digest what director comey has said. when you have time to take it all in and process it, what concerns you now going forward? how does this advance the investigation? >> well, what worries me about this and all the drama surrounding the testimony last week is i wouldn't say it's a diversion because it's certainly an important issue, but the real issue here is what the russians did. they attacked us. h was really serious sophisticated long term. they knew what they were doing. and not only did they, you know, get into e-mails and release e-mails and try to influence the election. they were also poking and prodding in state election systems, and they're going to be back. why hasn't the president
same way you have and james comey has? >> well, i have to tell you, charlie, that i thought that was one of the most disturbing moments in the hearing with james comey last week was when joe manchin of west virginia asked him that question in those nine interactions with the president, did he ever express any interest in what the russians did, how they did it, how we know they did it, what their plans are, and the answer was, no, zero, and that's very disturbing. as you know, the president has sort of denigrated this whole idea from the very beginning, and it's really worry? worrysome. i can understand the campaign and whether he was involved. that's understandable. on the other hand, he's commander in chief, the country is under attack, and he's acting like this is all personal. this is a serious matter, and i wish he would sit down
intelligence community and really absorb what was done here and the significance of it. >> senator king, thank you so much for joining us from maine. >> pleasure to be with you. the president is focusing again with troubles in his white house staff. several reports claim he's told the chief of staff reince priebus he must figure out a solution by jewel 4th or he'll lose his job. but major garrett is at the white house with a different story. good morning. >> good morning. as we told you, president trump is considering a considerable shakeup in his white house staff but sources tell us he has never set a july 4th deadline to decide whether or not to keep white house chief of staff reince priebus. in fact, the president has told his senior staff and those close to him that he can't afford to take a massival ter indication of his west wing staff at this point because if he
only add to chaos and instability. priebus is under a microscope, but that's been true for weeks if not months. what he needs to do in the month of june and in all likelihood month of july is put some legislative issues on the board. another big story, gayle, to watch this week, the attorney general's testimony before the senate intelligence committee this week. sessions has emphatically denied there was a third undisclosed russian meeting with sergei kislyak during the trump campaign. one other thing to keep an eye on. senators meeting in private are trying to look. if they succeed, that could well keep priebus's job and put an accomplishment on the board but if the senate republicans fail much of the remaining agenda may staal with it. norah? >> thank you so much. nearly five months
president trump took office his wife and youngest son have moved into the white house. they returned last night after the weekend trip in new jersey. they had stayed in new york city while baron finished his school year. last night the first lady tweeted a photo from the washington monument tweeting looking forward to the memories we'll mang in our new home. >> there we go. a new chapter getting off the plane. baron getting off the plane in a t-shirt that says "the expert." the prosecution rested its case friday after testimony from cosby's accuser andrea constand. jurors also heard details from his alleged assault from his 2005 detailed deposition. he has been charged with five cases of aggravated indevent assault. if convicted he could spend up to five years for each in
rikki klieman joins us at the table. it's still unclear whether bill cosby will, in fact, take the stand. if he does, what's the upside, what's the downside for him? >> if he testifies, i would say he's looking at not only the possibility of a conviction but a maximum sentence. judges, it's one thing for them to understand that you may or may not have committed a crime. it's another to think you might have committed perjury in their own courtroom. the risks are so high because he opens the door potentially in his cross-examination to all of those other glasses of sexual assault or many of them that were excluded, and then he ruins all of his appellate issues which are substantial. >> listening to that it sounds unlikely. >> if he were mine, he wouldn't. but it's his decision. he knows he's charming and
a celebrity. >> what's the strongest? >> the strongest is andrea constand. you also had a toxicology expert who talked a lot about the effects of benadryl. maybe you need to rebut that. but really the right trauma expert who talk about why women delayed to contact their assaulter, that's a real problem for the defense. what are the defense's options which i think is the most critical moment for cosby today and his team, he takes the stand. really bad idea, i say. he takes the stand and puts on some evidence and has rebuttal evidence to dispute andrea constand or he simply rests and say, okay, government, you have to prove this case beyond a reasonableable doubt. it's your burden and you didn't meet that burden and i can explain how you did not. >> do you think it's significant we haven't seen causably's wife or daughters?
>> we saw a tv daughter last week. >> we did. and we saw friend support for many, many years. i think it's critical at the stage of the proceeding wlrks he testifies or not, certainly at the time of closing argument, that jury needs to see camille cosby. if the wife isn't standing by the husband, why should the jury. >> why haven't they seen her? >> i understand reason is to keep her out of the firestorm. i tell you, got to be there. >> thank you so much. massive protests planned across russia could be a rare show of strength against vladimir putin. it was called by opposition figure alexei ana valdy who plas to run next year. elizabeth palmer is in the heart
of moscow, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the plans have been thrown boo confusion after a confusesing change of venue. people are celebrating russia's national holiday. that makes it illegal and so, of course, that will increase the risks with clashes with police. it wouldn't be the first time that any valny and protesters were there. mostly young people who support his main anti-corruption message but are angry about everything including unemployment and control of the state media. he's an entrepreneur and genius. it's, again, to get publicity and put pressure on the kremlin to let him run for president next year. and to add to the
norah, we just heard nevelni was arrested already as he left his parent to come here to protest. >> thank you so much. a passenger plane had to land in sydney, australia, after a gaping hole was noted near the new jersey. the plane was headed to shanghai. the captain immediately returned to the sydney airport. the airbus has two engines. passengers say they heard a loud bang and smelled something burning. >> i heard a noise and i'm not sure what it was. the cabin crewt wen out. they told us to fasten our seatbelt and they tried to calm us down. >> yeah. initially when when they were giving instructions, i didn't know what was happening. i was very concerned. i feel safe and feel blessed it
looked. >> in a statement china eastern said crew found damage in the left new jersey and took decisive action. no one was hurt. we have breaking news from the business world. immelt is stepping down. he's one of the country's most influential chief executives. the company says he'll be replaced by john flannery. severe storms have affected about 20 million people from texas to michigan. tens of thousands o people lost power in minnesota after severe thunderstorms swept through the region yesterday. heavy rain and hail fell in the air and the hail was so thick that plows and bulldozers were used to clear it in some places. up to 60-mile-an-hour wind gusts uprooted trees and damaged homes. certain birth control pills could

legendary director and writer oliver stone is known for his award-winning movies like "born on the fourth of july," "platoon," and "midnight express." over the years he's introduced controversial figures like hugo chavez and vladimir putin. >> stone interviewed putin more than a dozen times over two years. no topic was off limits. in a conversation from february 2016, stone asked putin about the candidates in the united states presidential election. >> but you do realize how powerful your answer could be if you said suddenly that you preferred "x" candidate, he would go like that tomorrow, and if you said you didn't like trump or something, right? what would happen. he would win. you have that amount of power in the u.s.
>> oliver stone is with us in studio. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> you had an opportunity to talk with vlademore putin. defense secretary gates said when he looked at him, he was looking at a full-blooded killer. what do you see? >> he reveals himself more in the film than anybody i've ever seen. if you think he's still a killer after you see these 20 minutes, that's fine, you know. you draw your own conclusion. >> i'm talking about what robert gates said, what i said. >> do i agree with mr. gates? >> no. what do you see? that's what robert gates saw. what do you see having spent this time with him?
concerned with russian national interests. he's represented them pretty consistently for about about 17 years in power, and he's there to talk. he believes in talk, he believes in peaceful co-existence. he said, -- in the whole two years i never heard him bad mouth anybody. he said very positive things about hillary clinton and positive things about don auld trump. he didn't care. in the hours he said the four presidents change, the policies remain the same. >> you sort of act as if what he says is fact. >> i'm interviewing him. why should he lie. and if he is, why should he omit something? i can understand if it's a state secret. >> the clip you made, unlike any partners of ours we never int interfere with
of countries. >> if you say so. i'm not there to argue with you. it's a complicated issue. >> why do you think he granted you such extensive access? you interviewed him over 20 hours. >> 20 hours of film. it was quite a -- i got to know him in the snowden movie because i was interviewing snowden in moscow. went over nine times to see snowden to get this story right. and when i was there one of those times, i asked him about it. he was quite brilliant about his view of it. >> back to norah's question, oliver, your access. you were in his house, he was driving you around in the car, you went to the gym with him. you sat down and ate with him. how were you able and allowed to have such access to him? >> maybe i'm a good interviewer. maybe people like me. 's not easy to
okay? >> no, no. he invited us. he heard he's going to be heard fairly and i'm not going to be an editor. you don't hear russia in the west. sometimes you hear a dubbed voice. >> he said his theory of life is the philosophy of judo. be flexible. befair. >> he works out every day. >> yeah. >> he learned hockey at 62 something like that. he's playing two years later. he's a sportsman. but he's disciplined and flexible at the same time. that's what judo taught him. i never saw him lose his cool with us. a few times i pushed him. more than once. and i saw him get rattled and upset. but, you know, i have to continue this relationship. it's in my relationship to encourage him to speak. so charlie did one with him, too, which was very
>> thank you. i asked a series of questions. president obama once said about him there's hardly anything ha goes on in russia that he doesn't know about or isn't responsible for. >> i'm not sure, charlie. russia is a huge country with 11 time zones. there's a saying czar's acts were about to be executed. but it's a long ways away. >> he's alluded to it. said it might not have been the country but somebody in country. >> a patriot. >> a patriot might have done it. don't you talk to him, make a marsh of the man and being in russia and being an american have some sense if russia meddled in the election? >> i don't know, chalie. why would they? miss clinton is way in the lead. why would you take the position that trump was going to be
candidate. you didn't think he was going to win. that was a shock. i'm of the belief she did not run a very good campaign. and there was a lot of -- on the footprints, will's a lot of confusion. the intel agency's people, that's not an estimate. that's aassessment. >> just to clarify, it is the consensus of all u.s. intelligence agencies that they attempted to meddle in the electi elections. it's not an intent to minfluenc. those are two different things. can i ask you. it somehow manages to spout the creme inline and fall back on the laziest american cliches about russia. another said you gave him a love letter. >> your mom used to tell you you catch more flies with 00 and thath
my camera was on him for around 20 hours over four visits. there's a certain behavior. it's in the eyes. it's in the body language. you see it. >> i hear you. >> you be the judge. >> i think there's one thing we can say about this. first of all, he's an interesting figure on the world stage, number one. number two, whatever else he is, he's a strong nationalist. he believes in russia and some say he has influence beyond russia. thank you for coming. >> i do think ou give us an extended glimpse. >> we learn from this. he said he wants to be our partner. he said very positive things about the united states. it's been a long time. he knows the president. you should listen. >> fascinating, oliver. >> thank you. >> it premieres tonight on showtime, a division of cbs. ahead, the netflix series "orange is the new black"

a beautiful sunrise here in new york will give way to extreme heat today. this video shows a brilliant orange over manhattan this morning. today's high temp is expect to hit a balmy steamy 93 degrees. summer has arrived. i like it. >> bring it on. >> boy, do i love it. >> i like it too. it was very nice yesterday too. we're on for a heat wave maybe, we'll see. welcome back to "cbs this morning." let's take a look in the green room. it's crowded in there. >> i think you would call them a
there. >> yes, you absolutely would. all four of them. >> and they would like that too. >> all four of them. the "washington post" reports that a high-profile former u.s. attorney said president trump's contacts made him uncomfortable. he said the president tried to cult vague some kind of relationship in the series of phone calls before he was dismissed. one accused him of a political ax to grind. former president jimmy carter shook everyone's hands. many were impressed by his gesture. they called it refreshing. apparently this is nothing new. he has a habit of shaking fellow passengers' hands when he boards a plane. i think that's very nice. >> it is very
one ticket correctly hit saturday's six powerball numbers. they get a million dollars. the ticket is worth nearly $448 million. the odds in winning were one in over 1 million. i'd take a lump payment. i might not be here in 30 years. >> a point to ponder. the walt street journal says someone will pay $2.7 million to have lunch with warren buffett. that topped the charity auction. the investor has raised more than $25 million in the 18 years he auctioned the lunch. the money helps the needy in san francisco. for nearly 20 years a reporter has covered some of the world's most danks conflicts. she's gained access to groups. in 2015 she
that unmasked one of the killers. her latest book recounts some of her most dangerous reporting assignments. it's called "i was told to come alone," my journey behind the lines. welcome. >> thank you. >> i'm looking at the latest news. syrian democratic forces have captured several strategic neighborhoods jeff outside isis's de facto capital of raqqah. what's the significance of that? >> we have to see first when they will capture all of raqqah. it depends. if you read the newsletters that are coming out from isis, you will read a totally different story. they're saying they're fighting back, killing a lot of forces, but if indeed this is true, it could mean that the u.s.-backed f es
doesn't mean they're going to destroy isis. the ideology will lead on. >> do you think the leadership is still in raqqah? >> what we're hearing is the leadership has moved to other places. charlie, isis knows and they knew this would happen, that at some stanlt the u.s.-led and backed forces would go after them and they have taken precautions. if you follow the media outlets that are coming from the news agency which is an isis-owned agency, you will see that it's pretty much functioning. so it doesn't mean that the isis structure is -- it's still going on there. >> but it also means the loss of the caliphate. >> well, the loss of the caliphate as a country but not as an idea and this is the danger. >> can i just say you're very brave. i this i this book started in part after 9/11 where a w
said why do they hate us so much. >> yes. >> and you went on a journey to find the answer to that question, by going to the other side. you into dangerous situations. you're told to come alone, no i.d., no cell phone. you had to trust them at times to gain access. how were you able to do that? >> of course, it took a long time. >> a lot of game planning. >> to get that kind of access, but also a lot of planning. when we come to an agreement to meet, there's, of course, always the danger that they would change their -- >> their mind. >> their mind or that maybe one of the questions i ask is not liked very much and they act or react in a way that will endanger me, but it's a choice i made, gayle, because i feel like if we want to find solutions, we do have to fin
>> what did you learn? >> they don't speak about religion. they talk about politics and international policies and what they call hypocrisy of our own western democracies. they talk about how we preach human rights an freedom of speech and expression but we're, indeed, using double standards. they're using at the moment, for example, some of the things that president trump said during the election campaign about muslims in order to tell muslims in the west, look, you'll never be part of this society, so come and join us. >> it's one thing to say that but then to do what they do in manchester and cities in europe. >> absolutely. you're absolutely right. >> it's very different and you have to point that difference out. >> it's very important for me to also point out when do we loose
bomber because he grew up in the west. there's a certain point we lose them to recruiters. >> in fact, you said in the book when you were a young muslim woman in germany, you might have been susceptible to a recruiter. >> because there was a moment in my life and i believe this is very important to mention in the book. there was a moment in my book where i felt i was no longer accepted in society, but i was lucky, charlie. i grew up in a household. i grew up in morocco and then in germany where i had parents and grandparents who taught me that we have so much more in common with people of different religions than what is dividing us and this is why i say in the book also, words matter. if people today only talk about what is dividing us, this is only helping those who want to recruit people. >> you talk about the help of a muslim woman. >>
>> sonya. who turned a case in france. if it wasn't for her information, the stoirt might not have turned out the way they did. >> without her they wouldn't have stopped. >> fascinating book, souad. the book is called "i was told to come alone," the title is very appropriate for the book. it comes out tomorrow. the stars of "orange is the new black" are in our toyota green room. taylor schilling, hello, taylor, the blond in the right dress.

>> see how you just say yous as belonging to us? >> it's important. you're like what, the snack police? >> no. they were a bribe. he said he would trick us into surrendering with snacks and tampons. >> you're throwing them away? that's a great plan. >> we have to show them we're serio serious. >> that's badass. >> that's a stupid idea. >> it's justice. >> some of us want to go home sometime. >> some of us don't have a home. this is my home. i want to fight for it. >> do you think they would do this to us if we were men? this is so insulting. >> exactly. we're joined at the table by taylor schilling, lawyer prepon and daniella brooks. it opens with a very
riot and i'm thinking the women are clearly in charge this season. it starts off with a huge, huge bang. taylor. >> yes, absolutely. i'm looking at the poster for season five and the idea of standing up, really, i think that embodies what the writers have kind of created this year. and it's exciting to see. it's exciting to see all of the ladies galvanized around one cause, you know. i don't think we've had that before. to see how everyone reacts. i mean it's a very exciting season for taystee. >> it's been a crazy ride for taystee. we got to see her go on an incredible journey through the ive seasons. this season we see someone operate out of a place, having nothing to lose. taystee is going for blood and for justice for herri
she's showing us how resilient she is. i love it. she's a fighter. >> she's a tough girl, but it's like she's gotten tougher. >> she's been a tough girl, but she's always been light-hearted, always seeing the bright side. >> brooks delivers a role that's powerful, soulful and captivating. she takes on a whole new role. >> thank you, guys. >> i know you even been asked this a thousand times but why do you think it connects with audiences beyond acting and scripts? >> i think our writers are interesting. nothing is tough. we take up issues relevant to what's going on in the world, and, you know, it's many than just being an actor for hire. you know, we take up women's righting, black lives matter, same-sex orientation.
lot of people are scared to write about. but audiences are smart and they want compelling television, and our show is compelling and we push the envelope and people respect it and with the success of that, you see other shows following suit. we kind of blazed that path. it's an amazing thing to be part of. >> including politics because this was filmed during the presidential election. >> right. >> how did that affect the show, taylor? >> given, i think, the way each of us just engages as citizens in the world, there was no real way to strip what we were making from the context in which we were creating it. i mean i think living in the midst of the campaign and the election certainly imbued everything we were doing with a little bit more intensity. >> but, you know, it's funny, because it also shows -- i remember specifically election
directing, and i remember that specific day -- >> watching it. >> exactly. what was going to happen. and everyone was on pins and needles, but it was interesting. that was episode ten. we were pretty much almost done with the season. but when you look at our show and that these women are going through this power struggle and standing up for themselves, you know, and fighting for what they believe in, it was so relevant to now what's kind of transpired, you know. so that's how amazing, you know, i think our writers are because they can foresee that this was something bubbling up. >> and there are impressions about them the way they wrote this up. standing up to resistance. >> and there's the notion that your guys spent a lot of research in terms of looking aet riots even though most riots at prisons have been at men's prisons. you look at that as,000 we
to the heart of what a riot is about. >> it takes people who are not afraid to die. for someone who really take over a riot, you have to really be that fearless. i feel like the women are at that point because they have been treated like animals, they have been treated like the bottom of the barrel as far as inhumane and right now they have nothing to lose. >> they know there are consequences and they don't care. >> exactly. >> even the ones who are not outspoken, you see a change in them. i was curious about the relationship between you two. >> that was my question. >> i was very fascinated by that. where is that going? >> i know you can't tell. >> it's interesting to see how it's evolved. you start season five as a couple. >> very clearly i think we realize that there's something we're dealing that's bigger than us right now with what's going on in the current environment of the prison, and, you know, we
between alex and piper is always so tumultuous and hot and cold which is why it's so much fun to watch and when that kind of thing gets thrown into a situation, i feel like a riot. you kind of realize what's important and you kind of at times put that aside and be like, okay, we need to focus on the greater issue. >> yeah. as much as it is a fun relationship to watch, will are sort of bigger scenes that we're dealing with. >> is piper ever getting out of prison? >> i don't know the answer to that question. >> nobody knows the answer to that question. >> we do know there will be seven seasons. >> yes. she's only been there -- in real life piper was there for 13 months and piper was in there for 18 and we're at ten. >> thank you so much. the new season of "orange the new black" is streaming on netflix now and you c
