7:01 am
let me tell you this to the american people, if the attorney general's office has become a political office that's bad for us all. i want to get to the bottom of that and it should be in the judiciary. >> the attorney general prepares to testify before congress. >> the key things we have to get, obviously, his side of the story related to jim comey and these accusations flying out there about conversations that he might or might not have had with russians prior to the election. oh, my gosh. >> severe storms in the midwest. >> powerful storm included hail that made it look like a winter snowstorm. >> it was hailing so bad i couldn't see the end of the driveway standing by the doorway. a china eastern airlines jet suffered major engine failure after takeoff in sydney, australia? >> hole in the engine and it was scary. >> the penguins celebrated and almost clocked their coach. the pittsburgh penguins again, are the stanley cup champions. >> i knew it was going to be

7:03 am
i do. i love that house of cards. i do love me some good political theater. >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." president trump's attorney general is being drawn into the investigations of russian meddling in the election. >> jeff sessions is expected to testify tomorrow to the senate intelligence committee. and he's likely to answer questions raised by last week's testimony from james comey. >> the president attacked the fired fbi director again yesterday. he tweeted i believe that james comey leaks will be far more prevalent than anyone ever thought possible. totally illegal, very cowardly. nancy cordes is on capitol hill looking ahead to sessions' testimony. >> a lot of questions for sessions cropped up after
7:04 am
comey's blockbuster hearing last week and senators from both sides wants to know why sessions was involved in comey's firing. we haven't heard whether this hearing tomorrow is going to be opened or closed but signs point to it taking place behind closed doors which is going to happen over democratic objection. >> first i think he should be sworn under oath. >> reporter: on "face the nation" senate minority leader chuck schumer ran through the questions he wants answered by the attorney general. >> did he interfere with the russian investigation before he recused himself? the president said comey was fired because of russia. how does that fit in with his recusal? >> reporter: sessions had been scheduled to testify before a different committee tomorrow about the department of justice budget, but he announced the switch to the intelligence committee this weekend after it became clear he was only going to get grilled about his role in comey's firingp. >> he had already recused himself and suddenly he is the one apparently recommending to the president that comey be fired. >> want to be able to get his
7:05 am
side and all the facts out there. >> reporter: 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. comey suggested to senators last week that there might be more to it than that. >> we also were aware of facts that i can't discuss in an open setting that would make his continued engagement in a russia-related investigation problematic. >> reporter: for the president's offer to give his side of the story. >> would you be willing to speak under oath to give your version of -- >> 100%. >> reporter: republican lindsey graham urged the president sunday don't do it warning mr. trump he might be, quote, his own worst enemy. >> you may be the first president in history to go down because you can't stop inappropriately talking about an investigation that if you just were quiet would clear you. >> reporter: some republicans argue sessions would not be the first attorney general to inject politics into an investigation. they point out that his
7:06 am
predecessor loretta lynch urged comey to describe the clinton e-mail probe as a matter rather than an investigation. even dianne feinstein, a democrat, described that request this weekend as something, charlie, that made her queasy. >> thanks, nancy. independent senator angus king is a member of the senate intelligence committee and with us now from brunswick, maine. senator, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. glad to be with you. >> begin with this, what do you expect to hear, hope to hear, plan to ask, the attorney general about when he appears before the senate intelligence committee? >> there are several things we want to look at. one is, he was certainly a member of the trump campaign. what were his contacts, if any, with russian officials during the -- during the period of the campaign? i think that's certainly a question we need to ask. secondly, a question i'm interested in, what role did he play, if any, again in the comey firing because at that point, he was supposed to be recused from
7:07 am
this investigation, have nothing to do with it, and to the extent the comey firing had something to do with the investigation, i think that's an area that we need to explore. >> that's exactly right. we heard james comey raise concerns about the attorney general's dealings with russian officials. do you believe there might have been a third meeting? what are some of the 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. i can't confirm whether there were other meetings. i think that's obviously one of the things we want to ask mr. sessions. >> and by the way, my inclination is that this should be in an open session. the only reason you go into a closed session is if it's a 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 questioning and defer it to a closed session, but i -- my starting point is that the
7:08 am
american people need to understand this whole issue and the more these sessions we can have in public the better. >> senator king how is all of this sitting with you? we've had time now to digest what director comey said. will you have time to take it in and process it, how is it sitting with you and how do we advance this investigation? >> well, what worries me about this and about all the drama surrounding the testimony last week, is that 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. this 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 of the united states, responsible for the national security of the
7:09 am
united states, spoke out in the same way that 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 worrisome. i can understand his concern about whether his campaign was involved and whether he's imcomplicated. that's understandable. but he's the commander in chief and the country is under attack, and he's acting like it's all personal. this is a serious matter and i wish he would sit down with the
7:10 am
intelligence community and really ab sort what was -- ab sort what was done and the significance of it. >> thank you for joining us from maine pleasure to be with you. the president is focusing on the troubles with his white house staff. several reports claim that the president has told his chief of staff reince priebus that he must figures out a solution by july 4th or he will lose his job. major garret is at the white house talking with his sources who tell a different story. major, good morning. >> good morning. as we've told you before, president trump is considering a significant shakeup of his senior white house staff. but sources directly involved in conversations with the president 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 undertakes a massive alteration of his staff at this moment because it would only add to the
7:11 am
atmosphere of chaos and instability. priebus the chief of staff is under a microscope that's been true for weeks if not months. what he needs to do until in the month of june and july is put legislative accomplishments on the board and bring stronger focus and discipline to the white house staff itself. another story to watch this week, the attorney general's testimony before the senate intelligence committee. sessions has denied some suggestions that there was a third undin closed meeting with russian ambassador sergey kislyak during the trump campaign. one other thing, senate republicans meeting in secret are looking to try to create a legislative repeal and replace for the obamacare act. if they succeed, that could help priebus keep his job and put a legislative accomplishment on the board. if republicans fail much of the remaining trump agenda may stall with it. >> thank you so much. nearly five months after the
7:12 am
president took office his wife and youngest son moved into the white house. melania and baron trump returned with the president last night after his weekend trip to new jersey. they stayed in new york city while bar ron finished his school year. last night the first lady tweeted a photo and wrote looking forward to the memories we'll make in our new home. >> new chapter for them too. bar ron getting off the plane with a t-shirt that says the expert. bill cosby's defense lawyers are making their case in a pennsylvania courtroom. the actor arrived accompanied by his wife camille. it's the first time she's appeared by his side for the trial. the prosecution rested on friday after testimony from cosby's accuser andrea constand. he faces three charges of aggravated indecent assault. if convicted he carries a penalty. rikki klieman has been following this trial and joins us at the
7:13 am
table to discuss. good morning, good to see you. a lot of people asking where has camille cosby been or any of his daughters. this is an important sign you think? >> i think it's a critical sign. i think it is so important to a jury about how they react to a defendant as to who he is supported by. if his wife will not stand up for him, why should the jury? >> his tv daughters have been there but no family members. >> it's different. you know, we used to say, when i was in the defense side of the business, that if there was a spouse, if there was a daughter, if there was a son, that we insisted that they be at court every day. i understand why they wanted to keep her out of the firestorm, but she needs to be there now. >> will bill cosby take the stand? >> i think that if bill cosby takes the stand, he is asking to get a good long sentence for sure and why is that? because what you have with a judge is a judge will say okay,
7:14 am
i understand if someone committed an offense years ago and sentence accord ply but someone who committed an offense commits perjury in my courtroom, if i believe they are not telling the truth i am going to sentence them to the maximum. bill cosby has to make the choice because it is his life and liberty. the risks involved if he testifies are substantial. phere.ave great appellate errors and they can go forward with that appeal. also, when you look at all the women who were excluded, all of that testimony excluded, he opens the door, it's all coming in. >> quick answer did the prosecution make a strong case? >> yes, they did. andrea constand herself was strong, buttressed by the rape treatment center expert who talks about the fact that people do delay in responsible and people do contact their accuser. she was really terrific on rape trauma syndrome. also the toxicologist who talked
7:15 am
about the effects of benadryl, all which support andrea constand. >> bill cosby doesn't take the stand what's their likely strategy? >> the likely strategy is three options. he takes the stand, he doesn't take the stand and they rest, and they argue simply on reasonable doubt which might be the wiser thing, or they put on experts of their own to testify differently about toxicology and differently about rape syndrome or perhaps they call witnesses to go about andrea constand's testimony and poke holes in it. >> thank you so much. thousands of people are protesting across russia today in a rare show of strength against president putin. police arrested at least 200 people. the demonstrations were called by controversial opposition figure alexei navalny who plans to run for president. elizabeth palmer is with the protests in the heart of moscow. elizabeth, good morning. >> good morning. after a last-minute change of venue that created some confusion the protesters formed
7:16 am
up here on the main boulevard that goes through the center of moscow right down to the kremlin. they shouted "putin you thief" and "russia without putin" as the police formed lines and arrested some of the protesters. alex alexei navalny's wife tweeted he was detained outside of the apartment as he was leaving to come to the protest. like the last protest in march this has drawn young people who support navalny's main anti-corruption message but who are also angry about everything from unemployment and low wages to state control of the media. navalny, who is a lawyer, is also a populist and provocateur with a genius for drawing attention and hoping to put pressure on the kremlin building wide grassroots support for a run at the presidency next year. he has virtually no chance of winning, but his supporters love
7:17 am
the fact that he would be the first serious opposition candidate to challenge vladimir putin at the polls. norah? >> all right. elizabeth palmer thank you so much. a passenger jet landed safely in sydney, australia, after a large hole appeared in its engine casing. the crew of the china eastern flight noticed the more than three foot long gash shortly after takeoff last night. the plane was headed to shanghai. the air bus has two engines and can carry more than 200 passengers. people on board said they heard a loud bang and smelled something burning. >> i hear the noise and i'm not sure what the noise but the cabin crew wept out and they were very like -- they told us to fasten our seat belt and they tried to calm us down. >> yeah. initially when they were giving instructions i didn't know what was happening so i was concerned. but i'm glad we're safe and yeah, i feel blessed it wasn't much worse than it looked.
7:18 am
>> in a statement china eastern said the crew found damage in the left engine and took decisive action. no one was hurt. general electric stock is up in early trading after a change at the top. ceo and chairman jeffrey immelt is stepping down and retiring. immelt has led ge more than 15 years and one of the country's most influential chief executives. the company says he will be replaced by john flannery who leads ge's health care business. severe storms are a threat today for about 33 million people from texas to michigan. the most significant risk centers on north and south dakota. tens of thousands lost power in the twin cities in minnesota after severe thunderstorms swept through the region yesterday. heavy rain and hail fell in the area and the hail so thick that plows and bulldozers were used to clear it in some places. 50 mile an hour wind gusts uprooted trees and damaged homes in minnesota and wisconsin. certain birth control pills are being recalled because they

7:37 am
is the biggest news to come out of this meeting is the board unanimously agreed to take the recommndations in the uber report and i'm told by my source that the recommendations are specific. but i know they fall in three categories, human resources, governance, and culture. so those are the big issues they're looking at. the shakeup is still unclear. >> do we know these things that travis did, the culture that he created? is it responsible for the huge success of the company? >> this is part of the issue and significance of the idea that he may take a leave of absence, which i'm told is his idea. this brash culture is what has led this company to go from zero to being worth almost $70 milli billion in seven year. that's substantial growth by any standard and certainly has had

significant fallout. >> how significant would that be if travis does indeed take a leave of absence and how often does that happen? >> it would be a big deal. the timing would be absolutely understandable. on friday he buried his mother after his family had a horrific boating incident. that could be a reason he wants to take a break. additionally the company has a host of open jobs. they're looking for a cfo, chief marketing officer, chief operations officer, a general counsel, and a senior vice president of engineers all at once. so the idea that the ceo might step away at that time could be really, really problematic, not to mention there's a dis fortune 500 leader

8:34 am
forces are gaining ground but it 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 widow
8:35 am
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
8:36 am
do have to find what's going on. >> 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
8:37 am
those people. for example, the manchester 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.

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.
8:46 am
we take up so many issues that a 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
8:47 am
day was during the episode i was 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 get
8:48 am
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
8:49 am
basically -- the relationship 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
