it is friday, july 14th, 2017. welcome back to ahead, bob schieffer on donald trump jr. and russian election. and developers. what you need to know before you talk to your virtual assistant. first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. president trump is heading home with the gugs still hanging over his family. >> leaders did not get the reception they were hoping for. if they don't come around, it's unclear there's a plan c. >> the river went from below flood stage to a
8:01 am
stage in four hours. this is main street. >> one day after authorities uncod verea 12 1/2 foot deep grave, cosmo dinardo confessed to the killings. >> bill clinton and george bush get together. what do your grandchildren call you? >> i'mle cald pepe. >> what do your grandchildren call you? >> i'm more humble. i'm called pop-pop. >> kid rock has officially announced his run for the u.s. senate. he wants to restore it to a time when it would have been unimaginable for kid rock to run for senate. that's the idea. >> announcer: this morning ice "eye opener" at 8:00 is presented by liberty mutual insurance. i'm nor reah o'donnell
8:02 am
jeff glor and bianna golodryga. charlie rose and gayle king are off. president trump is on his way back. he took part in a two-day celebration with president macron. >> this is the anniversary of the u.s. entering into world war i. he defended donald trump jr. meeting with lawyer seeking damaging information about hillary clinton. >> i think from a practical standpoint most people would have taken that meeting. it's called opposition research or research into your opponent. politics is not the nicest business in the world, but it's very standard where they have information and you take the information. in the case of don, he listened. i guess they talked about -- as i see it, they talked about adoption and some things. adoption wasn't even part of the campaign. but nothing happened from the meeting. >> two senate committees want more information aut
8:03 am
meeting. senate intelligence vice chairman mark warner says they requested documents from donald trump jr. and jared kushner who also met with the russia lawyer. he expects both to testify before congress. chuck grassley also says he wants trump junior to testify. the cover of the "new yorker" magazine's upcoming issue shows the president kicking his son-in-law and pulling his oldest son by the ear. major garrett is at the white house and if history is any indication, major, this issue not likely to sit well with this president. >> that's correct. good morning. russia revelations followed president trump to paris. they'll be waiting for him upon his return. as the president flew to france, he spoke to reporters, a conversation originally off the record and then placed the record by the president. in that conversation he defended don junior called him, quote, a good kid, a good boy, and defejded his lengthy
8:04 am
with vladimir putin where the president raised but didn't really press the issue of russian election meddling. putin denied hacking the election twice and after that the president said he dropped the issue telling reporters, quote, what do you do? end up in a fist fight with somebody? okay. the president said he will at the right time invite putin to the white house. it's too hard politically to do that at the moment. president trump also expressed some sympathy with chinese president xi jinping. saying china must look out for its own interests and she is aware of that. now, the president's son-in-law referenced just a moment ago that jared kushner is under renewed scrutiny. cbs news has learned three times kushner had to amend miss security clearance request here at the white house. the first one didn't include any mention of foreign national meetings. the second one did. the third one only included a meeting of that -- mti
8:05 am
now infamous meeting with the russian lawyer in june 2016. norah? >> thank you. bob schieffer has hosted "face the nation" for 29 years. he covered presents, including one who was impeached and one who resigned. always good to see you. how are you? >> i'm well. >> let's start with the meeting in paris. he said he would have taken such a meeting with lawyers if he received such an e-mail. >> i think most people would not. most people who know how things work, who have been around washington for example and know what russia is doing around other parts of the world and trying to sow information, here's what i would have done. if someone called me and said, hey, the russian government wants you to know we want to help in this campaign and we've got some dirty stuff on your opponent and we want to get together and tell you all about it. you know what i would have done?
8:06 am
first, but the second thing i would have done is i would have said, are these people trying to set me up? are they trying to draw me in to something so they can get something on me and then turn it on me later to their advantage? i say that, norah, because i've had people who have tried to set me up over the past. i've always said news is where you find it. so i've talked to some pretty unsavory characters in my time. but i always go into it wondering and making sure that i know what this is about. and if it had been someone from a foreign government, i can tell you for sure that even as a reporter, i would have been very wary about that and probably would not have done it. at least until i knew more about what was going on there. >> a lot of the signs point to jared kushner who's been in many of these meetings. and you see major garrett rep t reporting now he has had to en
8:07 am
three times. first he had no meetings with foreign officials and now it's over a hundred names of foreign contacts. >> well, you know these things where you bring family into government never seemed to work out quite right. i've known people up on capitol hill who would install their wives as the chief of staff, and then you realize you current fire your wife. you realize that the staff can't come and tell you -- criticize the wife if she's done something wrong. it just never seems to work out. i'm sure these young men are very smart and very intelligent. but you know, norah, just because your taddy owns an airplane doesn't mean you know everything about everything. there are some things you probably need a little help to check on and so forth. so i think the whole idea of trying to run the presidency like a family grocery store, i don't think that works very well. >> most people's daddies d
8:08 am
own airplanes. it's great to see you. it's bianna. let me ask you something i was struck by. ted cruz said earlier in his week from his vantage point no one in texas is talking about russia. we have three texans right now. is there anyone talking about russia? >> i think there are. let me tell you. i think there's a core of 30, 35% of trump supporters who would probably much rather talk about something else and will stick to him to the very end. so, yeah. i think there are people who are not talking about it, but i also think there are people who are. >> bob, can we ask you before you go about the visit to france that just took place. beyond the continuing fascinating body language between the president and the french president and others and the
8:09 am
there are the issues and it seems like they've found common frounld on terrorism issues, anti-terrorism issues. and then there's the question of whether the president might find room on climate change or immigration after dealing with emmanuel mckron. what to you make of the relationship and where it might go in the future? >> well, i hope it gets better. i would like to see our relations with all of our traditional allies get better. i mean when you look at what the russians are doing now and how they have sewn this discord, how they're going into these central european countries, they don't have to drive their tanks across the mortar anywhere. that i go in, make sweetheart deals with the rich people there to build things. they found a better way to do this and they're doing it actively, and putin's objective is to break nato apart and
8:10 am
and you have to say right now, he probably has a smile on his face. so i hope there is a rewarming of relations between the united states and france. >> bob schieffer, thank you again. good to see you. tennis superstar venus williams is advancing to her ninth wimbledon final. williams yesterday beat johanna konta. >> all of these moments have led to this. >> williams will face spain's garbine muruza. tomorrow she's playing her sixth. she revealed she had an energy-zapping autoimmune disease. serena and she

police chases are becoming so common in california you
8:17 am
even find them on the beach. police pursued a man across the beach in southern california. he was eventually captured in california. they found they cause unnecessary bystander injuries and deaths and most pursuits are not provoked by serious crimes. jamie yuccas looks at the focus on these captivating chases. >> we're looking -- whoa. >> reporter: to some, they're a riveting live version of reality television, but law enforce mnlts officers say people need to understand the true reality behind high-speed chases. there we go. oh, there you go. i rode along with california highway officer humberto jiminez. >> you're putting your life in danger, other people's lives in danger. >> they have nothing to lose so they might as well be famous and

8:34 am
editor in chief of "wired." how concerned should we be about what alexa knows about us and what they're giving to advertisers. >> we should be cautious. these devices are extremely useful and effective and good, but they also have a totally different relationship. we say things and they hear things we wouldn't want everywhere. >> are they recording when you're not specifically talking to them? >> no. they record when they hear the word "alexa." that's the way they record right now. in the future, it might be all the time. they don't want us to be scared of them. eventually they'll cord more and sell it to more places. >> is there a way to delete recordings th s that are on the?
8:35 am
you can go to settings and history and there are all the individual things you said and you can delete them one by one or you can go onto and go to the thing called manage my content, click on your content and deligete all of it. if t problem with that is if you do that, it goes back to the initial settings. >> i looked at it and said i'm not going to do it. people are saying, privacy is out the door. >> they say you should be lucky. we're only going to give up more privacy. artificial intelligence depends on data. data depending on extracting as much as you can from all of your customers so every big tech company is trying to get as much data as possible
8:36 am
the dirnltd products. to get that data everywhere they have to invade your privacy in all kinds of ways, so we have this constant trade-off for convenience and for innovation, we give up our privacy. >> i had that question because in a statement amazon provided us, they say they don't share the information without the customers' consent. when do we give the consent. >> it say wes don't share identifiable con sejt. it doesn't say norah ordered a pepperoni pizza. just that a pepperoni pizza was ordered or 700 people ordered it. it's not saying exactly who did it. but smart people looking at nonidentifiable data can figure out who said exactly what. >> how is this different from what google knows. they knee what we're searching for, they know what people are interested in and tell us what we want to do. >> because we're u

we know when we type google, we know it's going to follow us around the web and be sold and used in all kinds of ways. we aren't quite used to these alexias yet. we don't really understand that what we're saying goes into a machine and gets sent to amazon and gets chopped up and parse odd to all these other places. we don't know when we type, with don't know when we speak. >> thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. one of the most exclusive cars in sports is like a missile on wheels. ahead, the new
