7:03 am
>> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. is presented by toyota. let's go places. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." president trump is raising the possibility of a military confrontation with north korea. the president says conflict with the north is possible over its nuclear and missile programs, though he prefers a diplomatic solution. the warning came during a reuters interview yesterday, two days before mr. trump's 100th day in office. >> well, there's a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with north korea. absolutely. >> newly released video appears to show tuesday's live fire drill in north korea. its army fired hundreds of artillery rounds from a beach. david martin looks at the u.s.
7:04 am
military options against north korea. he's at the pentagon. david, good morning. >> good morning. there's no doubt the u.s. would win what the president calls a major, major conflict with north korea, but the loss of life and destruction of property would be horrendous on both sides. this morning, north korean state-run television aired video of this week's massive live fire exercise. it shows multiple rocket launchers and artillery firing as the country's leader kim jong-un and his officers cheer them on. it happened in the same week an american nuclear powered submarine armed with cruise missiles pulled into a south korean port, a b-52 bomber patrolled over the korean peninsula and the aircraft carrier "vinson" came within striking distance of pyongyang. north koreans put out a video threatening to sink the carrier, but the fact is they would be unable to prevent a devastating attack.
7:05 am
despite such overwhelming fire power, experts like senator jack reed of the armed services committee, said there are no good military options for destroying north korea's nuclear weapons program. >> there are military options, but they are risky. >> reporter: nobody knows that better than the head of the pacific command admiral harry harris, who has the power to destroy north korea. but not before thousands of artillery pieces and rocket launchers could unleash a barrage on the south korean capital. >> seoul is the most densely populated city on the planet. 25 million people in a relatively small area. within artillery range of the dmz. >> reporter: the u.s. has patriot anti-missile batteries in south korea. and in the coming days, a second missile defense system called thaad will become operational, but those are designed to shoot down guided missiles like these. they cannot defend against an old-fashioned artillery round or
7:06 am
rocket. >> isn't it credibly difficult to -- incredibly difficult to counter the 4,000 artillery pieces that the north koreans have on the dmz. >> it is, sir, and thaad is not designed to counter those kinds of basic weapons. >> and what is designed to do that? anything? >> we do not have those kinds of weapons that can counter those rockets once they're launched. >> reporter: it would seem like this is a standoff in which each side has the capability to infl ptable damage o the other. but admiral harris says this is the worst crisis he's seen and in a crisis all it takes to start a war is for one side to miscalculate. gayle? >> all right. thank you very much, david. president trump says that he wants south korea to pay for the controversy thaad missile defense system. china and some south koreans owe pose that. >> why are we paying a billion dollars? it's a billion dollar system.
7:07 am
it's phenomenal. it's the most incredible equipment you've seen. it shoots missiles out of the sky and it protects them. i want to protect them. we're going to protect them. but they should pay for that. >> the president also said he wants to renegotiate a trade deal with south korea in response, seoul says it has no plans to do that or to pay for thaad. today is president trump's 99th day ins office and a number of his legislative goals are still in limbo. he suffered another setback in congress yesterday when house leaders put off a vote on the newest plan to repeal obamacare. congress will vote today on a one-week budget extension to keep the government from shutting down tomorrow. mar margaret brennan is at the white house. margaret, good morning. >> good morning. senate democrats are pushing that short-term funding deal to the brink and while president trump appears to be narrowly avoiding a government shutdown until that budget extension is passed the federal government is set to run out of money at midnight. >> during these first 100 days. >> reporter: on the eve of his
7:08 am
100th day in office president trump will avert a government shutdown after losing a bid to cash in on one of his chief campaign promises. >> repeal and replace obamacare. have to do it. >> reporter: another attempt to repeal and replace obamacare came up short, even as republicans worked all day and into the night to line up votes. >> they are in a lose/lose/lose situation. the president is making them walk the plank. >> reporter: house minority leader nancy pelosi dared the republicans to shut down the government, placing a high stakes bet meant to discourage republicans from voting on health care. >> any shutting down of government, the ball is in their court. >> reporter: the 11th hour showdown paid off. house speaker paul ryan said momentum behind the president's health care bill had picked up among republicans, but wouldn't risk a losing vote. >> we're having very productive conversations with our members and we feel like we're on the right track. >> reporter: but republicans decided forcing a vote wasn't
7:09 am
worth the risk. majority leader kevin mccarthy said the house will vote today on a one-week extension of government funding. earlier this week, democrats used the threat of a shutdown to win two other concessions. dropping the demand for border wall funding and agreeing to pay health care subsidies for low-income americans. white house press secretary sean spicer. >> the democrats at the last minute have come in and thrown a lot of monkey wrenches into the ability for this to get done, despite the president doing everything that he can to show good faith to keep this going. >> reporter: and if congress does sign off on this short-term funding deal that buys them just one week, gayle, to settle some of the more complicated budget issues. >> all right. margaret, thank you very much. the pentagon has joinlds the list of groups investigating president trump's former national security adviser and his ties to russia. retired general michael flynn was paid about $34,000 for a speech in moscow, nearly 18 newly released pentagon documents show that flynn got an official letter months earlier
7:10 am
saying he could not receive fees from a foreign government without permission. the white house press secretary has said that this has nothing to do with the trump administration. >> all of that clearance was made by the obama -- during the obama administration and apparently with knowledge of the trip that he took. so, that's how the process works and i welcome the department of defense's review. >> congressman elijah cummings ranking democrat on the house oversight committee said there is no evidence that flynn told the pentagon that the russians paid him. >> with us is united states attorney general jeff sessions. welcome. >> good morning. >> i know you have excused yourself and recused yourself from some of the things that happened during the campaign. but having said that, did any of this information come to the campaign during the campaign? >> i'm not aware of any of that, so i am recused on those issues and anything that is necessary to be done, i'm sure will be done. but we in the department of
7:11 am
justice don't confirm or deny the existence of investigations. >> with regard to mr. flynn, is this kind of thing, you're the nation's chief legal officer, a violation of the law? >> i don't know enough about it to comment and i think it would be inappropriate for me to comment on that. what i would say is, that we have great cabinet members, we've got some people that are doing super jobs like i was at the border with general kelly, homeland security last week. we've seen a 70% reduction in the number of illegal entries since december at the border. that's a dramatic thing. >> mr. attorney general, give us -- >> see that happen -- >> let me ask you this. hindsight is 20/20 but do you think the trump administration could have done a better job vetting mr. flynn? >> these things are not easy to discover. if it happened. what happened. i'm not sure it's impropriety or not. i don't have an opinion. i would say they've done a great job of putting together some fabulous people in the cabinet
7:12 am
and many of integrity and good judgment. >> it would be a mistake if he failed to reveal he received this payment? >> i just don't know enough to comment about it. i don't think it's appropriate for me to be talking about it. >> let's turn to immigration you pointed out the 70% drop in illegal crossings. why do you need a border sfwhal. >> well we're going to need to get there. we are on the verbal ge of crea what the american people want for 30 or 40 years, which is a lawful system of immigration. 1.1 million each year to lawful permanent residence in the united states in an appropriate way. we need to end the illegality. i'll let people apply -- >> you have a republican congress. i mean this is so rare. they won't even include new funding for the wall and not one republican lawmaker on the four border states supports funding for a border wall, this is in your own party. >> we'll get funding for the wall. it's important to do so. i would just say that this year, we could use some money this year, but it's not critical.
7:13 am
because this year ends september 30th. >> are you going to get funding -- >> what we need is next year and move forward. >> are you going to get funding from mexico as the president promised? >> there are a lot of ways we can fund the wall through, in effect, charges on those who enter the country, particularly on those who enter unlawfully. >> you have a problem and the state department has a problem they don't have enough people to do the job. go ahead. >> well, we do have a hard time getting people confirmed. i've got 12 confirmed positions by the state. only one yesterday took office. he's my deputy, he's fabulous -- >> are you nominated for somebody all of those jobs? >> virtually all of them. a good number. i'm not sure we are over half or not but we have others -- >> why not? having a problem nominating people. >> it's not a problem. you have to get fbi backgrounds before you nominate them. people -- if you don't do the proper vetting then you get accused of not vetting before you nominate them. good backgrounds are important. >> let me ask you, there's a lot
7:14 am
in the news about sexual harassment and fox news channel. we know that the justice department is looking into that matter and, in fact, it has expanded this morning, cbs news is reporting, the u.s. postal inspection service looking into that. what is the investigation about? >> i cannot confirm or deny the existence of any investigation. those matters if they are occurring will occur on their own. we in the department don't talk about any investigation. >> again, you're the chief legal officer. when the president criticizes the ninth circuit in a significant way, is that a good idea? >> look -- >> is it appropriate for the president to consider -- i mean to criticize the ninth circuit? >> they're not above being talked about. >> is it right for the president to do that? >> it's right for the president as he's done historically over the centuries, to express opinions about judicial opinions. they're not -- they have a lifetime appointment. their pay can't be cut and their decisions can be commented on
7:15 am
and these -- the one that he criticized i think was wrong and i'm proud of -- >> his new supreme court justice had some reservations about the president speaking to issues like this and expressed it. >> well -- >> backing judges. >> i'm not sure what he meant in that. i see one nominee recently said we have a lifetime appointment, nothing wrong with people commenting about our opinions. and that's what i feel. >> look, the judges in this country are so important. i respect them. i practiced before them for many years as a federal prosecutor. i have the highest regard for them. the greatest threat to the independence of the judiciary is if judges become more political, people cease to believe they're deciding opinions based on law and fact. >> that's what you believe about the ninth circuit judges. >> i'm worried about it. >> you're worried? >> i do not believe executive order the president issued was carefully --
7:16 am
>> we're talking about sanctuary citys. >> i was talking about the travel matter. that's the one before the ninth circuit. so i really think that the judges just don't get to say, well you said in the campaign nine months ago. so i don't like this order. so the question is, is the order itself improper. does it in any way improperly discriminate or does it -- >> so what do you -- >> bans the safety of america. >> what do you and the president want to do about the ninth circuit? >> well, i think we have a number of judges in the country that have departed a bit too far from classical enforcing the law as written -- >> therefore? >> and using the law to advance an agenda they may have personally and so the ninth circuit has been criticized for that tendency more than any other circuit. >> what should be done? >> well, the main thing is you appoint judges and confirm judges to the ninth circuit that will be responsible and more restrained in their actions.
7:17 am
but you're not prohibited from saying i disagree with what you're doing, else you've created a superior branch of government. we have three. >> all right. >> reince priebus called it and says the ninth circuit is going bananas. is that a legal term? you're the highest -- >> doesn't sound like a legal term. sounds like a term a chief of staff to the president might say. >> mr. attorney general, always good to have you here. >> thank you. >> hope you'll come back. thanks so much. >> thank you very much. >> we will bring you a special edition of "cbs this morning" on monday live from inside the white house. it will feature john dickerson's interview with president trump which debuts sunday here on "face the nation." investigation into fox news we just mentioned is widening. a second law enforcement agency has joined the justice department probe into business practices at the cable channel. the united states postal inspection service is now involved. its investigators are financial crimes experts. jer reka, what's the latest?
7:18 am
good morning to you. >> good morning. a person familiar with that investigation confirms to cbs news that, in fact, investigators with the u.s. postal inspection service are involved in the justice department probe into fox news. now, that investigation reportedly has to do with dealing with money matters at the network. while the existence of the justice department investigation came to light two months ago, the postal inspection services involvement is new. the network in the meantime has been lashed by a series of conduct related lawsuits. 11 current and former employees filed a class-action lawsuit last month claiming executives fostered a, quote, culture of severe racial harassment and ignored their complaints going back years. fox news denied those claims, promising to vigorously defend these cases. yesterday, one of the network's high-profile anchors sean hannity tweeted about the turmoil inside the company referencing a "new york" magazine article that said
7:19 am
network executive bill shine was on the chopping block. shine had been named in a number of lawsuits against the network. hannity wrote about it and said shine, if he were removed, would, quote, that's the total end of the fnc as we know it. done. and he continued by saying, somebody high up and inside the fnc is trying to get an innocent person fired. now we reached out to fox news for comment on the expanding federal investigation. we did not hear back. norah? >> all right. thank you so much. president trump has big plans for his 100th day in office tomorrow. ahead, a look at some of the things he has already done by simply signing a document in the white house. we'll talk with john dickerson,,

7:34 am
>> reporter: many of the orders he's signed are aimed at overriding obama-era reforms like climate change efforts, regulation of the financial industry and designation of federal parks and lands. >> let them in. >> reporter: others have been so drastic in scope that they spurred nationwide protests. during his first week in office, the president signed an order restricting immigration from seven muslim majority nations that was blocked by the courts. the president still says he will fight. >> as i said, we'll see them in the supreme court. >> reporter: as a candidate mr. trump lamb basted then president obama for using his executive power. >> i have a pen and i've got a phone. >> reporter: though mr. obama signed 13 fewer in his first 100 days. >> he's given up on the process and he just goes and signs executive orders on everything. >> reporter: executive orders are usually used by presidents when they face gridlock in congress, but republicans now control both houses. >> i think he's trying to show

action. >> reporter: president obama's former chief of staff bill daily says the president is trying to quickly make good on some campaign promises. >> real progress, real change has to be done by the two branches of government, legislative branch and the executive branch working together to pass laws that fundamentally change things. >> reporter: harry fleisher, press secretary to george w. bush at the beginning of his presidency says voters elected mr. trump in part to undue the last eight years. >> in many ways barack obama governed by executive order. when he governed by executive order you can be ungovernored by executive order and that's what donald trump has done. >> reporter: the white house says the 2016 election was a mandate for change and they say the president's aggressive use of executive orders shows he's taking that mandate very seriously. gayle? >> all right. chip, thank you. cbs news chief washington correspondent and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson joins us from washington. good morning. >> good morning, gayle. >> let's continue that conversation that chip laid out for us. these executive orders have they moved the needle sig is cantlie
7:36 am
on any of his campaign promises? >> a little bit. a lot of these executive orders are orders to parts of his administration to study things or look into things or on steel, for example, to investigate. so they don't actually take action. they just order his administration to do reviews that would then have to -- other things would have to take place to actually take action. it's fornts look at the actual structure of these orders. but they do, for highly improvisational president, they do give direction to his administration, which is -- which is something and, obviously, they are being used in the same way be president obama used them, which is as public relations moments to show that the president cares about an shao, but, you know, you still have to go through congress. >> right. >> and so they don't -- they're not transforming things as much as perhaps the white house would like to make it people how important is it for him, do you think, john, to have a legislative victory, sooner rather than later? >> certainly he would like one. the president came in saying he
7:37 am
was going to negotiate in ways that people had never seen before, and one of those jobs is negotiating with the hill. he's a trying to do it with things that are very, very complicated and complex so it's not surprising it would be difficult to pass health care reform, regardless of the fact that the president as a candidate said it would be quite easy. there are other things happening with the people he's appointed to like the food and drug administration, the federal communications commission, certainly the justice department, that are changing the way america will exist and that those appointments are changing and rolling back obama administration regulations and rules in ways that are quite transformative and that don't get covered so much. >> the president gave a wide ranging interview to reuters in which he expressed some really interesting things. he said, he missed my old life, he thought it would be easier, the presidency. he said he missed driving. what does that tell us about him? >> it tells us he is a president and like all previous presidents he feels the constraints of the office. bill clinton used to say that
7:38 am
the white house was the nicest facility in the american penal system which is -- and they -- presidents have always talked about the kind of prison that the white house can be. and certainly president obama felt that acutely. so it seems like president trump is feeling that as well. >> john, two questions. one, nice haircut, by the way. >> well thank you, charlie. i know -- >> you're getting ready for the big interview, aren't you in. >> yes, exactly, brushing my teeth, flossing, all those important things, charlie. >> how are you going to prepare for this? how does one prepare for a big interview when this president is doing other interviews and you want it to be special? >> well, i say, what would charlie, norah and gayle do, and then i meditate on that for a while, charlie. >> well, he's given you a lot to discuss, john, that's for sure. >> that's for sure. we just -- you know, we just cover the news every week and write down the questions we don't get to ask and then go from there. >> and then put them in the book. >> all looking forward to it.

shutting down tomorrow. the spending measure wound -- would keep the government running for one more week. bernie sanders of vermont is with us from capitol hill ahead of that vote. senator, good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> are you confident that the u.s. congress will avoid a government shutdown? >> well, i surely hope so. it would be a disaster if the government did shut down. i hope it stays open. >> let me ask you about this interview in which president trump gave an interview to reuters and he said there's a possibility of a major major conflict with north korea. what do you think of that? >> well, the president said he wants to avoid that conflict. when you talk about a major, major conflict you're talking about a nuclear war. obviously i think the goal now is to work as strongly as we can with china. china is i think -- i think they receive about 80% of the exports from north korea. they are in a position to tighten the screws on north
8:04 am
korea. and tell them that they cannot continue their missile program or their nuclear program. but what concerns me right now i have to tell you, sitting here in the congress, is these incredible tax breaks that president trump and the republican leadership are proposing. it just seems to me that a time of massive income and wealth inequality, the idea we'd give cutting back on education and health care and the needs of our children and seniors is to me totally absurd. we have to everything we can to oppose that. >> that's what i wanted to ask you, the new yo"new york times" that the richest families and their heirs will benefit from this tax plan. can that get through congress? >> well, look, what you have now is a republican leadership doing the business of the koch brothers. the second wealthiest family in
8:05 am
america who spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year trying to elect republicans. i think that at a time when the top 0.1% owns as much wealth as the bottom 90%, when the middle class is shrinking the idea that you cut programs that people need to get tax breaks to the billionaire class is totally insane. >> you said that before many times even during the campaign so what can you do about it in this senate, in this congress? >> well, we can rally the american people to say that when you had a president who campaigns on supposedly behalf of the working class of this country that he's being totally hypocritical and dishonest. giving tax breaks to billionaires is not standing up for the working class of this country. >> well, 96% of the people that voted for him still support him. why do you think they're sticking with him? >> well, the latest poll shows that he's the least popular president in american history at this point in his administration.
8:06 am
i think it speaks to the fact that the democratic party has not been as strong as it should be in making it clear which side it is on. the fact that we are the only major country on earth not to guarantee health care to all people as a right. the fact that the middle class today has many, many millions of people out of work and -- working longer hours for lower wages. the democratic party has to get its act together. make it clear it's on the side of working people and expose trump's hypocrisy. >> tomorrow is the 100th day of his presidency. is there anything you can look at and say, donald trump you have done good? >> attaboy? >> there are some things that he has done. but i think the gist -- he does a lot of things but i think the gist of his 100 days and what really bothers me the most is not just his hypocrisy of telling working families, vote for me, i'm going to stand up to you and then doing exactly the opposite after he is elected. that hypocrisy is i think what
8:07 am
is disturbing to many, many people. >> could we hear one thing he's done well? >> i think he's talked at least about the need to rebuild the crumbling infrastructure and put $1 trillion into it. if he follows through on that that's an important idea. >> something you can report legislativ legislatively? >> if it's done -- right. >> do you believe that the president has taken us closer to war with north korea? >> no. this is a very complicated and difficult issue. north korea is an isolated, dangerous country that has nuclear weapons, working on a missile system. the goal is to bring the world together especially china to tell north korea that economically they are not going to survive if they continue the development of nuclear weapons and intercontinental missile efforts. >> president obama is going to speak at an event here in new york, wall street investment bank, for a $400,000 fee.
8:08 am
you were critical of hillary clinton for taking money like that. what do you say is about president obama making an even larger fee? >> look, president obama is a friend of mine. i think he as a president represented our country with integrity and intelligence. but i think at a time when people are so frustrated with the power of wall street and the big money interests, i think it is unfortunate that president obama is doing this. you know, right now you have president trump's key economic adviser as you know is gary pkohn, former president of goldman sachs, a firm that paid $5 billion in federal fines because of the legal behavior. wall street has incredible power and i would hope that the president would not give a speech like this. >> would you say if you were offered to give a speech for $400,000, you would turn it down?o cf1 o >> if wall street offers me that, yeah, i don't want wall street's money. >> even though -- >> but i must tell you, i really
