7:11 am
the fbi's radar screen because he was approached by russian intelligence agents back in 2013. now, fisa warrants are not easy to obtain. if u.s. investigators want to monitor a u.s. citizen, they need to provide a secret court with evidence that the subject is acting as a foreign agent, possibly to spy on or conspire against the united states. these warrants are valid for just 90 days and they grant permission to carry out electronic surveillance on the subject. unnamed officials have told "the washington post" that this warrant was renewed more than once by the fisa court. now, page himself has denied any wrongdoing. he's told cbs news, quote, it will be interesting to see what comes out when the unjustified basis for those fisa requests are more fully disclosed. page is an investment banker. he advised russian energy companies. and the trump campaign actually began distancing itself from page after a controversial

8:02 am
they met as the white house accused moscow of covering up a serious role in last week's chemical weapons attack. sergey lavrov called the missile attack after the attack unlawful and both countries agree the lines of communication must stay open. >> just before the meeting, vladimir putin said in a tv interview that the level of trust between the united states and moscow has degraded. margaret brennan is in moscow where it's possible that putin will meet tillerson today. >> reporter: good morning. just as secretary tillerson began a tough round of talks here in moscow, president vladimir putin publicly accused president trump of degrading and deteriorating trust between moscow and washington. now behind closed doors, secretary tillerson told his russian counterpart sergey lavrov says improving relations means they have to stop propping
8:03 am
up assad. and he said it was an ambiguous and contradictory syria policy and that tillerson doesn't have enough state department staff to help craft one. what is clear is that president trump has vowed not to increase ground forces in syria and that a limited air strike was because of assad's use was because of chemical weapons. vladimir putin refuted that saying that assad was framed and offered two theories. that the depot of chemicals was run by rebels or it was fake. and it was evidence from the u.s. intelligence and other sourcesing a 'cusing putin of a cover-up, intended to confuse and obfuscate on the behalf of the assad regime. the threat posed by mr. putin and mr. assad is sure to be a topic in president trump's meeting today with the secretary-general of nato. we expect secretary tillerson to tell the press about what
8:04 am
happened in his meetings. charlie? >> margaret brennan, thanks. cbs news senior national security analyst the a former homeland -- is a former homeland security adviser to president bush. good morning. what is it doing -- really doing to the u.s./russia relations? >> look, the temperature is pretty hot with the rhetoric. i think the whole purpose of tillerson going there is to try to -- it's harder to say nasty things to your face than it is -- you know, when you have a spokesperson do it. i think the purpose of tillerson's visit is to lower the rhetoric and if see if the u.s. and -- and see if the u.s. and russia can work together on syria. i will tell you that the kremlin has double down, right? putin's statements, they have doubled down on assad at the moment. saying that the evidence is faked. that the -- this is a rebel held stockpile, it's nonsense. we know it's nonsense. the u.s. tried to put the sort of lie to that propaganda effort
8:05 am
by reclassifying some of the intelligence, not all of it, there's more. but the u.s. is trying to carefully manage this in a way that allows them to protect sources and methods so they continue to have some insight to the weapons program and chemical weapons program in syria. >> but it's pretty extraordinary on the eve of this visit the white house has the front page on all three of the major newspapers this morning saying to reporters, here's the intelligence about russia's complicity in what happened in syria. >> that's right. i mean, norah, i think russians doubled down because they failed, right, to be the guarantor they told the obama administration they would be. and there's got to be real concern in the white house. this is not the only stockpile. they said as much in the declassification yesterday. they assumed there are additional chemical weapons. the missile strike was the sort of a first step, but it's not a strategy and so what rex tillerson and the administration have to do now was build a
8:06 am
strategy with coalition partners to the extent we allow this to be a u.s./russia problem, we diminish our leverage. we have to bring in arab partners if we want to see assad go to increase the pressure on russia. >> does the u.s. intelligence believe that russia knew that the syrians were going to use sarin gas? >> it's interesting, charlie, they were very cagey yesterday then we they released this intelligence about making that statement. it's sort of hard to imagine they didn't, right? because the russians were collocated at this very base that the syrians used to launch this. we struck one base. there are five other major syrian air force bases and the question really becomes if you can bring -- if you can build a coalition and bring in your arab allies why can't you have them strike the other five bases, pull out the air defense system. crater that. crater the air traffic control system. and command and control, increase your leverage over assad and force the russians to the table. >> and despite all the russian
8:07 am
obfuscation, do you think that putin is wedded to keeping assad in power? >> i don't think he cares about assad. let's be honest, what he cares about is the strategic asset is the deep water port on the mediterranean. his only one. i think if you could get him a guarantee he could have access to the town -- >> that might be it. >> fran townsend, thank you. sean spicer is apologizing for trying to make syrian president bashar al assad seem worse than adolf hitler. he said that hitler didn't use chemical weapons. the nazis killed 6 million jews. spicer made the comments when he was asked why russian president putin would pull back his support of assad. >> we didn't use chemical weapons in world war ii. you know? you had a -- you know, someone who was as despicable as hitler
8:08 am
who didn't sink to using chemical weapons. >> about ten minutes later spicer was asked to clarify what he had said. >> i think when you come to sarin gas, there was no -- he was not using the gas on his own people the same way that assad is doing. i mean, there's clearly -- i understand. thank you. i appreciate that. there was not -- in the -- he brought them into the holocau holocaust -- ien understand tha. but the way that assad dropped them into the middle of the towns, it was brought -- so the use of it, i appreciate the clarification. that was not the intent. >> spicer put out a statement and appeared on three different news channels to apologize. he did it again this morning in an interview at the museum. >> that got into the topic that i shouldn't have and i screwed up. so i would ask obviously for folks' forgiveness to understand that i should not have tried to make a comparison.
