7:08 am
making his unannounced visit to iraq with joint chief of staff general dunford. he's the principal military adviser to the president and defense secretary. kushner is not the first trump administration official to visit the country. defense secretary mattis made an unannounced trip to iraq in february. president trump has repeatedly leaned on his son-in-law to shape the administration's foreign policy. kushner was at the table last month when president trump met with the iraqi prime minister at the white house. the president has tasked kushner to help broker a peace deal between israel and the palestinians and he has been front and center during visits by the israeli and japanese prime ministers. >> he trusts his son-in-law. >> anita mcbride, former chief of staff to laura bush said the 36-year-old kushner has broad influence. >> his expanding role is something that is indicative of obviously the deep level of trust that the president puts in him to be an innovator and to
7:09 am
come up with different ideas. >> this week mr. trump will meet with three foreign leaders beginning this morning with egyptian leader and then king abdullah on weekend and chinese president xi jinping on friday at mar-a-lago, a visit that jared kushner has been shaking. north korea will be at the center of talks with china. president trump said, quote, if china is not going to solve north korea, we will. kushner's role in domestic policy is substantial as well. he's been known to run economic meetings convened by the president speaking largely while the president looked on approvingly. his wife also a domestic policy force within the white house and on friday according to financial disclosure forms released by the white house, the two have combined assets of between $240 million and $714 million. both, norah, remain beneficiaries o their real
7:10 am
estate and investment businesses. >> all right. major, thank you so much. senate republicans say judge neil gorsuch will be confirmed as a supreme court justice this week one way or the other. the judiciary committee votes this morning. it's expected to send the nomination to the full senate. gorsuch needs 60 votes including eight to overcome a likely filibuster. if he doesn't get them mitch mcconnell said he will change the rules to eliminate the filibuster option. >> look. what i'm telling you is judge gorsuch is going to be confirmed. the way in which that occurs is in the hands o the democratic minority. >> jan crawford is on capitol hill. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. president trump picked gore such because he was seen as a solid conserve active, but they're threatening to filibuster. that would mean republicans would need eight democrats to
7:11 am
break rank and right now they only have got three. there are still eight democrats untee sided on the filibuster, but senate majority leader schumer said gorsuch will not reach that 60-vote margin. the republicans are threatening to go nuclear. they would do away with it and declare him by a simple majority. some seniors are reluctant to change the long-standing rules and there's some talk of a deal. the democrats would agrow to confirm gorsuchthey would keep the filibuster open for the next vacancy. president trump's next pick could change the balance further to the right. charlie? >> thank you very much, jan. ed o'keefe is an editor for the "washington post" and we also welcome him as a cbs news contributor. >> it sounds good when you say
7:12 am
it. >> it does, ed. >> my first question is it possible they can find democratic votes ts way? >> at this point it doesn't look like ig jon tester, the democrat from montana who's been facing millions of dollars in t can't vote. at this point the mass doesn't seem to be there and so the republicans are probably going to have to take the next step and move the goalpost. >> so what does that mean? >> only about four times in the last 50 years has a supreme kourts nominee been filibust filibustered, requiring they exceed the 60-vote threshold. it's a tactic used to slow things down and make sure there's enough consensus. at this point it doesn't look like they'll be able to do that. they can decide to change the rules and say the way we to this is a simple up or down majority vote with two or three democrats and they can get them confirmed? >> is this wheret?
7:13 am
is this payback for merrick d? saying. they blocked them, never had a hearing, never gave him a vote because they believed that the next president shoulde able to make the pick. that strategy is going to pay off by the end of the week. >> it seems inevitable. have to play? >> the only ones they can. forced to slow things down. they've been making that point. the rules don't have to change. the president can come up with a new nominee. that's unlikely, so they're just going to have to change the rules. >> donald trump spent this weekend the way he spends every weekend playing golf, but it was interesting who he played golf with this weekend, senator rand paul who left that golf outing. he was optimistic about theobam. has anything changed? >> i think the fact that they had the meeti of the white house trying to make sure. i asked who won and they refuse
7:14 am
republicans criticized president repeatedly. ying too much golf. >> are we going to see him on the golf course more? >> i think he might. use the trappings of the offi me >> they can go to new jersey, westchester court. >>t agenda on capitol hill -- you cover capitol hill in terms o. >> well, they claim that they're starting to work on itin essenc able to do something to helpref >> will they try to do it together? >> we'll see. congress can't do big things these days. i would be surprised if they did that. >> thank you again. >> yes, you're welcome. >> chelsea clinton comes to

's real significant. >> it is real significant. last summer hay were so clear that this kind of behavior was not going to be accepted at the
7:35 am
company and yet what my colleagues uncovered is they're still settling these claims. >> so roger ailes had to go. why is bill o'reilly getting to stay? >> that's a question for fox. one of the things is bill o'reilly is the key on air personality of fox. if you remember last summer they were voting to keep megan killy there. >> she's no longer this. >> she's no longer there. at the time they really wanted her to stay. and as you know, sh was very troubled by these kinds of harassment claims. she had been troubled by them herself. you see part of the power of having a prominent woman doosh. >> is that the same reason the company is supporting o'reilly? >> certainly. it's their interest to keep their talent on the air. he has a huge following. >> bill o'reilly has a statement. he says just like the other

competent people i'm vulnerable to people who want me to pay for negative publicity. what to you make of that response? and doesn't it open the door if he's going to pay, i'm going to come up with a claim. >> i would keep in mind there's a pattern here. this is not one woman who's come forward. this is now several. so the idea that he's the real victim here and that these women are targeting him to get him to pay up, i think there's some questions about that. >> you talk about that pattern. as the norm times reports he would create a bond with these women, offer advice and then pursue sexual relationships with them. they were worried if they rebuffed him, it would hurt their career. >> that's what they reported. remember the context is that roger ailes was running fox news. it was very hard for women to go to management and complain because they were subject to

7:38 am
say, hey, this employee is raising concerns about you. >> was a core la corollary ques raised? >> that is the subject of a federal investigation right now. we don't know what it's turning up but as we know when investigators start riflig around in your business, a lot comes out. i think the question will be with regard to those payments but also what else will they find out. >> because the relevance is they were paying them as though they were a salary as opposed to a settlement. >> right. >> is it over? >> give somebody immunity? >> we. one former fox executive has immunity. >> do you think the story is over? >> we don't know. the allegations have been coming since last summer.
