7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." john dickerson is off, anthony mason is with us. >> hello again. >> stormy daniels is now trying to force president trump to answer questions under oath. >> the adult film star claims they had a one-time sexual encounter back in 2006. her attorney michael avenatti filed a motion overnight asking a federal judge for permission to question the president of the united states and his private attorney, michael cohen, about a nondisclosure agreement. she signed it before the 2016 election. >> avenatti is asking for a jury to decide if the agreement is valid. paula reid has details from the overnight court filing. paula, good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
7:04 am
this motion argues that the president doesn't have any protection from a civil lawsuit for something that happened before he entered the white house. in this motion avenatti argues that the agreement his client signed was actually an effort to impact the election and could have violated federal law. a motion filed by stormy daniels' attorney michael avenatti seeks the deposition of no greater than two hours with both mr. trump and his personal attorney, michael cohen. to determine if the president had a role in the $130,000 payment from mr. cohen to daniels 11 days before the presidential election. >> and you had sex with him? >> yes. >> reporter: among the questions avenatti wants to ask the president, whether mr. trump is david dennison, the name on the nondisclosure. also whether mr. trump knew about the hush agreement and will he authorized mr. cohen's actions. >> wow. >> reporter: any testimony given by the president or cohen could also help determine if any campaign finance laws were broken. >> was it hush money to stay
7:05 am
silent? >> yes. the story was coming out again. >> reporter: the motion alleges cohen's payment to silence daniels was made to, quote, help ensure mr. trump won the 2016ene the federal campaign act. rikki klieman is a cbs news legal analyst. >> if you give an in-kind contribution, that has to be reported. none of this has been reported anywhere. everything about this case is in the public interest. so while the deposition would take place behind closed doors, the public deserves the right to know. >> reporter: david schwartz, michael cohen's attorney, has denied the payment was related to the election. >> mr. cohen paid the $130,000 but the reason is to protect business, protect reputation, and to protect family. and you cannot speculate that it was to elect somebody president of the united states. >> reporter: the motion also makes reference to another
7:06 am
famous presidential deposition. >> i don't recall. >> reporter: avenatti claims the supreme court case of president bill clinton versus paula jones established the constitution does not offer a sitting president significant protections from civil litigation. attorneys for mr. cohen describe this motion as a reckless, politically motivated charade. it is important to note that while this nondisclosure is being contested, mr. cohen's attorneys argue that stormy daniels is still bound by the agreement she signed and is potentially liable for millions of dollars in penalties each time she discusses her alleged affair with the president. >> all right, paula, thank you. turning to michael avenatti, who filed that motion for stormy daniels. michael, let's discuss. i've heard this motion described as brilliant, brazen, and frankly, crazy. what exactly are you looking for here? >> the motion is not crazy. we're relying on u.s. supreme court precedent and a whole line
7:07 am
of cases in the ninth circuit court of appeals. it is well-founded. it was well-thought-out. it's incredibly documented. >> what do you want? >> what we want is we want the truth. we want to know the truth about what the president knew, when he knew it, and what he did about it. as it relates to this agreement, we're going to test the veracity or the truthfulness of mr. cohen, his attorney's statements. we're confident, gayle, we'll prove to the american people they have been told a bucket of lies. >> the motion references a meeting on march 21st. what happened at that meeting? >> we had what's called a meet and confer were both sides confer about pending motions. we raised this motion with the other side. i think one of the things that was significant during that meeting was we asked mr. harder, mr. trump's attorney, whether mr. trump was a party to this agreement. and we heard crickets. he said they don't know yet whether mr. trump was a party to this agreement. how do you not know whether you're a party to this agreement
7:08 am
unless you're making it up as you go along? >> you're essentially arguing this agreement was an effort to influence the 2016 election. what would a judge need to be convinced of in order to grant your request in order to have a deposition of the president? >> we don't think it's a big stretch. the other side is attempting to force this case into a private arbitration, hidden from the public, where the public doesn't learn what really happened. in order for the judge to determine that, we are arguing that under the law, we're entitled to the deposition. quite honestly, there was a mistake by the other side in pushing this case into federal court. and now we're going to bring it to bear. >> you heard paula reid make reference to the statement from the spokesman for michael cohen who called this a reckless use of the legal system but went on to say, in order to continue to inflate michael avenatti's deflated ego and keep himself relevant, this is a politically motivated charade. >> mr. schwartz is a hack straight out of central casting. next question. >> if the president agrees to a
7:09 am
deposition only but it were under seal, would you agree to that? >> we would fight that. i can't imagine that the public would sit for that. but i mean, obviously if the judge ultimately decided that, we would adhere to it. >> you mentioned clinton versus paula jones in your motion. why is that relevant? >> it's the supreme court precedent. the supreme court already decided a sitting president can be deposed in connection with with a civil matter. if that was the law then, it's certainly the law now. it hasn't been overturned. >> if they came to you with a settlement in this case, would you accept it? >> i would consider it, i would confer with my client. in this case i don't see how it gets resolved short of getting the truth out. >> you called mr. schwartz a hack and then moved on. a lot of people, michael, are saying that you're a hack too, that this is all politically motivated, that this is really nothing more than an attempt to embarrass the president of the
7:10 am
united states. >> it's really not true. i'm not involved in politics. i'm representing my client. the president and mr. cohen are the ones who have spread half truths and falsities about my client. my client wants the american people to know the truth and nothing but the truth. >> when is your hearing before the judge? >> april 30th, both sides will argue their positions before the court at that time. >> did you have any trepidation about filing this, to depose the president of the united states? >> none. it's well-supported by the law and we're confident in the motion. >> thank you for coming, we appreciate it. >> yes, we do. the white house says it was not told about north korean leader kim jong-un's secret visit to china until after it happened. kim made the unannounced journey to beijing to meet with chinese president xi jinping, his first trip outside north korea since taking power in 2011 and his first encounter with a head of state. ben tracy has more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. kim jong-un is planning to host
7:11 am
a summit with the president of south korea this spring, also with president donald trump. so he had not met with chinese president xi jinping before that, that would have been considered a big snub. the chinese are calling this an unofficial visit but what took place actually looked pretty official. if kim jong-un is now trying to appear like an international statesman, china just gave him his moment. the 34-year-old dictator's first meeting with chinese president xi jinping had all the trappings of an official state visit. kim jong-un even brought his wife, ri sol-ju. the two leaders met for talks inside china's great hall of the people, followed by an elaborate banquet. chinese media quotes xi as saying, the issue of denuclearization of the korean peninsula can be resolved. he also confirmed publicly for the first time that he is willing to attend a summit with president trump.
7:12 am
kim jong-un's relentless development of nuclear weapons strained the once close relationship between north korea and china, and led china to go along with a series of tough u.s.-led sanctions that have squeezed north korea's economy. but it was all smiles and talk of friendship in beijing. president xi praised kim jong-un for what he called positive changes on the korean peninsula. david kang is director of the korean studies institute at usc. >> you know, i think both china and north korea needed this meeting. what's clearly happening is that kim jong-un is engaging in a diplomatic flurry of meetings to make sure that he knows what everyone is doing and that he shored up his relationship with china. >> reporter: it was xi jinping who invited kim jong-un here, which could be a sign that china really wanted to make sure these two countries are on the same page. interestingly enough, president trump tweeted this morning that
7:13 am
xi jinping sent him a message saying kim jong-un with looking forward to meeting him. >> ben tracy in beijing, thanks. the bilateral trade deal with south korea is president trump's first. it comes ahead of the expected nuclear talks with north korea. the deal includes an increase in u.s. auto exports to south korea. the south korean government also agreed to limit steel sent to the u.s. in exchange, south korea will be exempt from a 25% american steel tariff. anger over the deadly police shooting of an unarmed black man in sacramento is intensifying. hundreds of protesters blocked fans from entering a sacramento kings basketball game last night. they also temporarily shut down a public meeting with city leaders. it was held to discuss stephon clark's death ten days ago. we have the latest outside city hall from john blackstone in
7:14 am
sacramento. >> reporter: the sacramento police department has asked the california department of justice to oversee its investigation into clark's death. but that seems to have done little to ease the city's tensions. >> stephon clark! stephon clark! >> reporter: stevante clark led protesters in a chant of his brother's name in the middle of a public meeting about the shooting death on march 18th. like many here, he called for an end to police violence. >> it has to stop. >> reporter: stephon clark was shot at, 20 times, in his grandmother's backyard after police mistook the cellphone he was holding for a gun. >> does this look, as you point this to our council, does this look like a gun? >> reporter: the meeting's overflow crowd marched to the nba arena where the vsacramento
7:15 am
kings were playing. they blocked all entrances for the second time this week. >> i feel week we're doing something in this community that's positive. >> we're going to grow from this event and that's what matters. >> reporter: sacramento police chief daniel hahn says his department is looking into whether officers acted improperly when they muted the audio on their body cams shortly after shooting clark. he says the department does have a policy where officers are allowed to mute their cameras in certain situations. still -- >> regardless of whether they were within policy or not, if you already are somebody in our community that didn't trust the police department, you're probably going to think there's something shady about what we're doing. that hurts us. >> reporter: right or wrong, muting didn't help the situation? >> it did not, correct. >> reporter: more body cam videos are set to be released. they were shot by officers who arrived at the scene after the shooting. there's no indication so far when those will be released or
7:16 am
whether they will contain the muted audio. meanwhile, black lives matter has announced that they will hold protests every day through clark's funeral on thursday. >> all right, john, thank you so much. the family of alton sterling is outraged that louisiana's attorney general is not charging the two officers involved in his shooting death. the attorney general said the baton rouge officers acted in a justifiable manner. dramatic cellphone video captured them pinning sterling to the ground before one of them opened fire and killed him in 2016. sterling's death led to protests over the officersy u yofficers'y force. facebook just announced what it calls a major overhaul to its privacy features, changing it easier to block apps from user data and make privacy tools easier to find. cbs news learned ceo mark zuckerberg will likely testify before congress about facebook's privacy policies, after more
7:17 am
than 50 million users' data was obtained by cambridge analytica. vladimir duthiers is following the story. vlad, good morning. >> good morning. this comes a day after a lawsuit filed in california claimed facebook improperly stores call logs on synced android phones. facebook says it's only on certain apps when users opt in. it appears the often-private ceo, mack zuckerberg, isn't opting out of testifying before congress. >> the short answer is, i'm happy to testify before congress if it's the right thing to do. >> reporter: after signaling his willingness last week, facebook ceo mark zuckerberg seems ready to follow through. his company is under expeninten scrutiny. since the cambridge analytica scandal broke, facebook's stock has tumbled 17% and the fec has
7:18 am
opened an investigation. facebook found this morning it is consolidating privacy tools onto a single page and allowing users to choose which apps use their data. >> this doesn't change any of the data that facebook is actually collecting. >> reporter: kurt wagner is senior editor of social media at recode. he claims the real sign of change at facebook is the ceo's behavior. >> this does feel like a bigger moment than we've seen in the past from these companies. these are real consequences of what's going on. >> reporter: until now, zuckerberg and other tech ceos have generally sent lawyers or deputies to testify before congress. >> i would like to see mr. zuckerberg. not his lawyer. mr. zuckerberg in the flesh. >> reporter: but the growing chorus of frustrated lawmakers and users seems to have forced a new course of action. >> he knows if he doesn't do it, i'll be crushed by the media, by politicians, and by facebook's
7:19 am
users. >> facebook tells us this morning it is looking into the claims in the california lawsuit. no date has been announced yet for zuckerberg's testimony. >> all right, vlad, thank you so much. we're learning far more families lost eggs and embryos stored in an ohio clinic than previously reported. ahead, how human error

that is not happening that fast. by why can't it last six months or one year. >> a judge could say that's fine. >> what do you think of this motion on its face and how did we get here that we're now in a conversation about the president of the united states being deposed? what do you think of the motion first. >> first of all the amended complaint, it's been a long time since monday when we talked about the original complaint, the amended complaint filed on monday afternoon followed by this filing in the early morning hours, these are stellar filings. they are based in fact, they are based in law, they are based in precedent. if a judge in the federal court, the judge that has this case, goes through this particular amended complaint and the memorandum and sees what the president is, i have to give you this one, the restatement of contracts, that's the basic rules of all of contract law, the first example that is given about voiding a contract is that

8:06 am
so now, michael avenatti who has an end game, he has damages he's looking for for stormy daniels. he wasn't looking for that before. >> could michael cohen dissolve the nda to prevent a deposition and trial? >> i think what michael cohen would have to do is settle this case. now, the easiest way -- you can't just dissolve it and say i didn't mean it, it doesn't matter, and stormy daniels gives back the money which she has offered to at you have to do now is have a settlement which what is you asked him in the last hour and he had the right answer. which is -- >> on monday i asked whether the president being deposed in 60 days could happen. you said it was an exaggeration what do you think. >> i think it's an exaggeration only on the timing. you're going to a hearing on april 30th and then going to be motions and then there's going to be another hearing. i'm going to get passed my 60 days. >> thanks very much.
