8:03 am
contempt of congress. democratic chairman jerry nadler says the committee and the justice department could not agree to terms that would allow members to read all of the mueller report, including material removed by law before its release. the justice department says barr will be compelled to request that the president invoke executive privilege over the report. democrats say the president waved that privilege during the investigation. the trump administration has also ordered former white house counsel don mcgahn not to comply with the subpoena from the same committee to turn over other documents related to the mueller probe. you'll remember mcgahn is the white house lawyer who reportedly would not fire mueller at the president's instruction. the material includes those related to president trump's contacts with james comey, the former fbi director and the termination of james comey. director comey's firing by president trump led to mueller's appointment as special counsel. james comey is with us for his first television interview since the mueller report was released to the public. his memoir "a higher
8:04 am
loyalty:truth lloleadership" han paperback. good to have you here. i'm interested to hear your take on the mueller report. we saw this special counsel in that report detailed ten instances of possible obstruction of justice by the president. why do you think the special counsel ultimately decided not to charge him with obstruction of justice? >> i think because he was trying to be both principled and fair. he was trying to abide the department of justice ruling that says you can't indict a sittinging president and reasoned if i can't indict a sitting president, i ought not to accuse him of a crime because that wouldn't be fair, given i can't clear him, i'll just lay out the evidence for future prosecutor and for congress. >> but one of the things you said in your book is that you believe your firing was potentially obstruction of justice and the special counsel didn't go that far. >> right. he collected the evidence, which if you read it, i hope folks will actually read it. deeply concerning, but decided not to make the call because he
8:05 am
thought that wouldn't be a fair thing to do. so i'll just compile it all, and what he compiled is really concerning, especially when you look at the ten episodes >> oneth attorney general points to in those ten episodes is there was an issue initiating event that put the president's mind set in -- intent is important. the president thought this is going toed me up my administration and one thing barr focused on is your reluctance to tell the public that the president was not actually under investigation. the president not having you not tell the public felt like, my gosh, this is all stacked against me. and that was kind of the initiating thing that made him so paranoid. >> yeah, i heard the attorney general say that. and i don't think it is a fair summary of the evidence. that may be his motive. but a whole lot of people commit crimes in this country because they're frustrated and angry. that isn't the question. the question is when he did the things he did, was he intending to obstruct justice. he may have a moative to push something away that embarrasses him or irritates him, that's not
8:06 am
the key question. >> have you been surprised by bill barr's summary letter? >> yes. >> what surprised you? >> that it struck me, especially after i read the mueller report as misleading. i'm not suggesting it was intentionally misleading, but inadequate to summarize that work. >> what was misleading about what the attorney general said? >> it gave the impression that bob mueller had decided that he was not going to rule on this question of obstruction of justice, when that's not what mueller did. mueller laid it out and signalled to a future prosecutor after this individual's out of office, you ought to take a serious look at charging him. >> the republicans have said case closed, time to move on here. do you think that -- do they have a point? >> i think they have a point in the sense that the american people now have a clear view of how the president acted. read the report, if you didn't have a clear enough view of donald trump's character, and the way he approaches this office, you now do. time to move on to the movement important thing we do, vote to decide who should representdent
8:07 am
states. >> the attorney general said he believes spying occurred in looking after the president's then campaign. what do you think about that? >> i have no idea what he's talking about. the fbi doesn't spy. the fbi investigates. we investigated a serious allegation that americans might be hooked up with the russian effort to attack our democracy. the republicans need to breathe into a paper bag. if we had confronted the same facts with a different candidate, say a democrat candidate, where one of the advisers was talking to a foreign adversary's representative about that adversary's interference in our election, they would be screaminging for the fbi to investigate and that's all we did. >> the debate, the semantic one. the fbi was investigatinging into the trump campaign, but you're saying they had cause to. and you just wouldn't use the word spy. >> of course. just people just ought to look at the predication for the op opening of that investigation. we should have been fired if we didn't investigate this. >> you have tens of thousands of fbi agents on the front lines every day, doing work to protect america, to keep this country safe.
8:08 am
when the attorney general undermines the integrity of those agents by suggesting they're involved in spying against a president what does that do to the reputation? >> it is deeply concerning. ordinary folks will accept what the president says what the attorney general says, and that hurts our ability to be trusted as fbi agents in courtrooms and at doorways. so it is a very bad thing. >> we were talking about the op-ed you wrote, just a couple of weeks ago, and i encourage people to go back and read it. you go through, you say how could mr. barr, a bright and accomplished lawyer, start saying these things. you talk about rod rosenstein and then say what happens to these people. and said more often proximity to an amoral leader reveals something depressing, mr. trump eats your soul in small bites. >> i would like to add to that, it starts with making you complicit by your silence, in meetings with him, assertions about what everyone thinks and what is obviously true watch over you unchallenged.
8:09 am
i'm curious to norah's question, inquiry you at home mad one day and say i have to saying something? >> i wasn't mad. i was depressed watching people of accomplishment, very bright people, act in ways that are shockinging. the deputy attorney general of the united states quoting donald trump on the importance of the rule of law. really? a lot of folks were asking me what happened to these people? i don't know for sure. but i've seen is up close from four months of working there, and i've seen him wrap people in this web of deception and delusion and i've seen it shape them. i've seen great people stand up to do it -- >> explain how that happens. who do you think he wraps people in a web of deception? >> you sit with him, he'll just tell lies, he's not asking for your reaction to it. he'll just talk about how he had the largest inaugural crowd in history. much larger than barack obama's. and if you don't jump in, and interrupt and contradict the president, you feel like you kind of agreed with him. and these lies wash over you,
8:10 am
over and over again. and the next step is you sit at a cabinet meeting and everybody praises the leader. and then the next thing you know, he's attacking the institution you represent, someone like bill barr always said the attorney general has to stand up for special prosecutors and suddenly you're not doing that and you find yourself trapped. >> you point out the defense secretary mattis did not do that. he was one of the exceptions in that rule. >> right. i said amoral leaders tend to reveal character. in the case of jim mattis revealed sterling character. >> the former fbi -- turned your phrase around on you, though. he wrote, he himself ate away at the soul of the fbi, not in small bites, but in dangerously large ones. >> i don't have a reaction to that. talk to people in the fbi and they'll be able to better evaluate what i did. >> do you feel in some level your credibility has been hurt because democrats and republicans have criticized some of your actions and decisions? >> definitely. yes. >> what would you say? >> read what i write, listen to
8:11 am
what i say and evaluate it. what is my reasoning, what does it seem like to you? if you don't like it, if my facts are wrong, don't listen to me. i don't think they are, though. >> you have a new preface in your book in which you say you pose the question, are we going to be okay? what is the answer to that? >> yes. because american history shows us that we always have periods of retreat and pain after periods of tremendous progress. and we recover. there is a ballast in america and that's our values. they stir every so often. i hope they're stirring now. i see signs of it and they'll vote their values. >> you said you're entitled to your own opinion, not entitled to your facts. read the report and look at the facts. >> truth say real thing. >> it is a real thing. thank you, james comey. the paperback version of comey's book

uber and lyft drivers are on strike in cities around the world. the protest comes ahead of ublic offering that could value the company at moalre p thanub erti ini$90 bil. jamie yuccas is in minneapolis. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the wait time to get an uber here in minneapolis is about 12 minutes, but the wait times could be higher in other striking cities around the country now that it is rush hour on the east coast. drivers contend that with the company about to go public, the executives will make billions of dollars while those behind the wheel are running on empty. this is how a typical day starts for jeff perry. he's been driving for uber for more than three years. but his first riders of the day are not paying. he take his two daughters to school before making the two-hour trek from sacramento to san francisco, where he can earn

8:20 am
the working conditions of drivers. except this is not a free consumer experience. people depend on uber to earn their living. when your boss experiments on how much you get paid without notifying you that can really rankle. >> if things don't get better, no way i can continue to do t s this. >> reporter: we asked perry to keep a video diary of his weekend. >> just got to the hotel. >> reporter: a lot of people would say if it is this bad why not go get another job somewhere else? >> i understand that argument. but at the same time, this is a job that i actually like doing. so it is worth putting in the effort and trying to fight for better conditions and make it better. >> reporter: he plans to take part in today's call for action. drivers for both uber and lyft which went public in march are calling for changes, including better benefits, more transparency, and higher wages. >> for a lot of drivers, this is a good job because it comes with additional scheduling
8:21 am
flexibility they may not have if they're working retail. in other ways, there is a lot to be said for improvements that could come to this type of work. >> reporter: uber says drivers earned nearly $80 billion with an additional $1.2 billion since tips were introduced two years ago. but in its ipo filing, the company says as we aim to reduce driver incentives to improve our financial performance, we expect driver dissatisfaction will generally increase. >> maybe even if anything comes out of this ipo, hopefully the public sees it and says, you know what, exploitation of the workforce is wrong and holds some accountability. >> reporter: in a statement, uber says drivers are at the heart of our service. we can't succeed without them. adding they hope to have more consistent pay, stronger insurance protection, or even fully funded four year degrees. norah? >> that's going to upset the marketplace certainly if people can't get their rides. thank you, jamie. you're watching "cbs this morning." we'll be right back.

happen not during swim time. on the east coast there were not a lot of kids in the pool. kids are crafty and they get out fast and the whole process -- the terrifying part, you know the kids are thinking it before the parents are. that nonswim time, it happens quick and when you're not swimming. you're cooking and the kids are gone and you're left with that lifetime of regret. >> it happens so quickly nicole. you said you were starting to eat a brownie and you didn't even get to do that. >> it happens so fast. >> because i'm a good parent. >> yeah. he was wearing khaki shorts sitting on the couch. he slipped out of a room

device was on the market at the time. it was not on the market, which is frustrating enough. there's enough noise we're going to make those changes. you're launching the new fence around the pool and also the american academy of pediatrics has guidelines about swim lessons. we visualized you swimming with your son. what do you do? >> there's layers of protection. there was a momentary lapse when i got a bag of cheetoes and he didn't know how to save himself. the survival swim lessons are a skill we can bring somewhere else. >> moving the as qckly as

8:39 am
what's the best way. what is your message here? >> i think, you know, i agree with you. there's no silver lining, but, you know, you keep going. for both of our there was no alternative. there were other kids dependent on us and stuff. you direct your suffering and productive things is helpful. i think all of us would loved to have just hid, but that process of being out there and trying to make a difference, it gives you a sense of community. we're doing it for other people really at this point, but it's at knolls to say it couldnd happen to us again, which is a horrifying thought. but you have to make these changes and be vigilant. it's a tough one sometimes. >> we're grateful. we need these reminders and everybody needs help.
