cbs news has learned that during a period between election day and inauguration, u.s. the intelligence officials were concerned about inform bgs shared with russian operatives. for months they had been tracking communications that they felt were cause for alarm. >> it's a rigged system. >> reporter: investigators are looking into whether the trump campaign may have been coordinating with the russians as early as april 2016. sources say investigators found multiple contacts considered a cause for concern. a former u.s. government official tells cbs news, you could see the hall marcs throughout, including electronic intercepts. the fbi is execute nicing paul manafort, former policy adviser carter page and the former national security adviser michael flynn. >> he saw his role as protecting the fbi from the white house. >> benjamin witt
former fbi director james comey told him how the president put him on the spot two days after the inauguration. >> he stands in a part of the room that is as far from trump as physically can be. trump singles him out in a fashion that he rarlded as sort of, you know, calculated. >> he's become more famous than me. >> comey was just completed will disgusted by the episode. he thought it was an intentional attempt to compromise him in public. >> five days later on january 278th at a white house dinner, the president allegedly asked comey if he would pledge his loyalty. on february 13th, flynn was forced to resign after misleading vice president pence about his contacts with the russian ambassador. the next day president trump spoke to combmy alone in the oval office. comey wrote a memo detailing how he says trump indicated he wanted him to drop the federal investigatio
been on the former fbi director o make those memos public and to testify again on capitol hilling but some members of congress indicating that since the appointment o the special counsel, that may complicate efforts to bring comey back on capitol hill to answer questions again. charlie. >> thanks, jeff. president trump is fighting back against the special counsel who is taking over the rush investigation. the president said yesterday the appointment of former fbi director robert mueller, quote, hurts our country terribly. it shows a very divided country. president trump leebs today for his first foreign trip . he lands in saudi arabia and then the vatican and sicily. margaret brennan is at the white house right now. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. a sometimes chaotic press conference with colombia's president, president trump described himself as a victim of a witch hunt. >>
everybody, even my enemies have said, there is no collusion. >> president trump said the appointment of special counsel robert mueller who is now leading the fbi probe into russian meddling is dividing the country. >> i respect the move, but the entire thing has been a witch hunt and there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign, but i can always speak for myself and the russians. zero. >> the president sharply dismissed democrats' claims that he may have interfered in the investigation. >> i think it's totally ridiculous. everybody things so. >> mr. trump strongly denies ever rjing fbi director james comey not to pursue an investigation into former national security adviser mr. flynn who had mislead the white house about his contacts with russia. >> did you at any time urge fbi director james comey to back down into the investigation into michael flynn, and also as you lo b
>> no, no, next question. >> since dismissing him last week he has announced several replacements. he announced a decision is coming. >> we're very close. >> when? >> soon. >> on capitol hill the possible nomination of former senator joe lieberman, a democrat turned indeath penalty is not expected to gain bipartisan support. >> i think it's a mistake to hire anyone who has ever run for office. >> leeb eerman has lost favor because of his, in part, 2008 public cam feign for john mccain. >> he's a wonderful man, enormous prestige and affection on both sides of the aisle. >> gnaw fbi director could be elected as soon as today before president trump departs on that big international trip. his nine-day, five-stop visit begins in saudi arabia and includes a tour of the great three religions. >> what are the goals fors
international trip, his first one? >> well, this has been months in the making and it was intended to really try to reassure allies that president trump's america first policy doesn't mean abandoning allies and that the president going to maing a big speech in saudi arabia, which the white house says is meant to unite the united states with its muslim allies against extremism, but the president will also then go on to italy and belgium where he'll face some tough questions about plans to increase troop levels in afghanistan and whether he'll stick with some of those international agreements luke the iran nuclear accord and the paris climate change agreement. and so far the president doesn't have solid answers to those questions because the policies are still being formed. >> margaret, thanks. travel safe. the deputy attorney general apparently knew about president trump's plan to fire fbi director james comey before writing a memo recommending his
dismissal. the senator said rod rosenstein opened the door. he criticized him for how he hillary clinton's e-mails. rosenstein will brief members of the house later today. cbs news chief washington correspondent and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is with us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> so where are we on all of this. >> charlie, where are we. so the president is obviously created a condition where something he created a witch hunt has bipartisan support. robert mueller has been praised by republicans and democrats. the president and his team are trying to get back to what they should be talking about which is his domestic agenda, and he's about to take this big foreign trip which they've spent a lot of time working on and gives him the opportunity to put himself on the world stage and put forth his agenda at the rl
investigations at the same time. >> that's correct. they all want a piece of this. they want to talk to james comey, they want to see his memos, there are more than one, and hear from him. and you'll have the special counsel who will always be out there bouncing new revelations but also the president has this narrative or these conversations he had with comey, which are different and separate and a different problem. >> and are there tapes. >> are there tapes and did he know what he was doing. if it's true from the papers that director comey kept telling him, looking we shouldn't be having these conversations and yet he persisted, then that gets you into a condition where the president is knowingly doing something rare than just being an inexperienced guy who doesn't know the par tick laters of the way he's supposed to be
>> there's the rosenstein memo. >> right. he said this is why the president has made his decision. now we learn the president was going to do this anyway. the reason that's a problem is not only it's a ragged story, exactly why did you do this, mr. president, but it also puts rosenstein on the hook little bit. his reputation was referred to several times explaining why this really had nothing to do with politic because he's supported by republicans and democrats but then when it looks like the letter was a cover for another reason why comey was fired, that goes to that. >> what are you hearing about supporters about how they feel about the job he's doing. >> his supporters feel like he's doing a great job, that he's in there swinging and fighting for thechlt them. >> what about the challenges? >> they see the challenges as o
fight through. they hear him when he says, look, i've got this deal with china to buy beef. they think the press is against him. the reason it's important is it's a feedback mechanism. the president hears this and says these are the people who support me, they got me into office, if they're okay with me, i can continue doing what i'm doing. >> on the other hand we keep hearing in the white house there will be a staff shakeup, there will be a staff shake up. >> and then you hear it's overblown. in other administrations when they say they your overblown, they're shaken up 20 minutes before. i suspect something's going. >> i never think the word is good when you hear "embattled" in front of your name. thank you, john. you can see john on sunday. he talks with dianne feinstein,
and anthony salvanto has our nation tracker poll. the man who drove his car into sometimes square is facing charges. one count of vehicular homicide and 20 counts of attempted murder. he smashed into a crowd killing a teenager. police said he was going south on seventh avenue, made an abrupt u-turn and jumped can curb. he drove down the sidewalk for three blocks. jericka duncan is where he finally came to a stop. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you can see where this car has been removed. witnesses say this car was barreling down the sidewalk like a bowling ball striking several people in its path. he only came to a stop because of the barrels behind me. part of the

anti-taur rohr units of the nypd. >> reporter: rojas, a u.s. sit extend, has had prior run-ins with the police. earlier this month he was arrested for menacing. >> in 2008 he was arrested in queens for drinking and driving and in 2015 he was arrested for drinking and describing. >> reporter: rojas served in the u.s. navy from september 2011 to may 2014. in 2013 he spend two months in a navy prison after being court-martialed. police sources tell our new york station wcbs that rojas made some rambling statements after being arrested and seemed emotionally disturbed. now, he did pass a breathalyzer test but other initial tests came up positive for marijuana. gayle? >> thank you very much, jericka. fox news founder robert ales is credited with helping

it is friday. aren't we glad about that. friday, may 19th, 2017. yes, we are. welcome back to "cbs this morning." president trump is preparing to make his first major overseas trip, but his political troubles could follow him there. ahead, what the president stands gain or lose from his first foreign trip. but first here's today's "eye >>ener" at 8:00. s> hi lawyers calling today's decision total victory, saying he is set to walk free. but theth tru isn't that cut and dry. >> they're concerned about information being shared with russian operatives. >> at a joint press conference, president trump described himself as a victim of a witch hunt. >> so where are we in all of
oh, charlie. it now has bipartisan support. robert mueller has been praised by republicans and democrats. his team is getting back to what they should be talking about. >> one eyewitness said this car was barreling down the sidewalk like a bowling ball. it only came to a stop because of these steel barricades behind me. >> the king of netherland has revealed he's been leading a secret second life as a commercial airline pilot for 21 years. >> how did no one notice or maybe people did notice. it's just that no one can take you seriously when you get off a flight from amsterdam. it's like, dude, the pilot was the king. okay, chazz, okay. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and alex wagner. norah is off. wikileaks founder julian assange is claiming victory in one of the legal cases against him.
assange showed himself smiling this morning after sweden dropped a more than six-year-long rape investigation, but he is not completely in the clear. >> no rngs he's not. prosecutors in the u.s. may be considering charges against wikileaks julian assange for leaking classified information, and british police say they will arrest him if he leaves if ecuadorian embassy in london where he's been holed up for the past five years to avoid extradition. president trump leaves for his first foreign trip later today. the first stop on his nine-day trip is saudi arabia where he meets with muslim leaders. then he heads to israel followed by a meeting with pope francis at the vatican. the final leg of his trip includes a nato meeting in brussels, belgium, and a g7 economics summit in sicily. margaret brennan is at the white house. she'll be traveling with the president, but she's still at the white house. good morning. >> good morning. president trump will have to reassure a
baggage he's carried including the firing of former fbi director james comey won't disrupt his agenda. relations with saudi arabia and israel were damaged during the obama administration in part due to the nuclear deal with iran, but president trump has his own fence mending to do with the muslim world given that harsh campaign rhetoric. white house officials say he's going to emphasize that he does not view the west as at war with islam. there are also going to be sweeteners like a $109 billion arms deal with saudi arabia. trump's son-in-law jared kushner shepherded these negotiations, even personally calling weapons manufacturers. many turn saudi arabia plans to invest about $200 billion in the united states over the next four years. and when the president meets with european allies a
then in italy, he'll still have unanswered questions about whether he's going to stick with international agreements leak the arriran accord and the pari climate deal. 's still dealing with that. he's not expected to deliver on the campaign pledge to move the u.s. embassy to jerusalem when he moves to israel. at least not on this trip. >> thanks, margaret. >> steve bannon. good morning. >> good mo . >> ian brem erngs good morning. >> good morning. i think this is a very well put together trip h terms of trump's capabilities, right? >> almost every candidate goes canada or mexico. he's not doing that. he's going saudi arabia. but the saudis and the israelis are the two leaders in the
of president obama, all right, in terms of american allies. and so they're really happy to see trump. this is not -- these are going to be easy trips. they're going to announce new cooperations. physically warm, pomp, showing trump what a great guy he is, big celebrations, and they'll make some announcements, new arms deals, for example, new cooperation on security. trump had another bombing run againstal lies of assad yesterday showing he's doing more to support the saudis in the region. this shouldn't be hard. but as you say, you know, this is kind of a it is aster. he steps on himself constantly. he's done this with enormous scandals that aren't going to go away. while on the trip, he's going to have to take the head lines and questions. he can't help with the tweets. he'll say things that are embarrassing and will become on camera mts
the course of the trip. the final thing i would say is, you know, this is his first trip as president to the islamic world. he as going be beginni he is probably going to say terrorist attacks. >> what will be the definition of success for you on this trip? >> i this i if we can get through the media psych shoe but other than that though, ian. i mean is there something concrete that you can say, that was a good trip, he did well. >> look. i think the fact that he now has foreign policy advisers around him that have gotten him to normalize on a bunch of things. remember how china went. before the big china meeting he said you're manipulating currency. afterward, hey, we're buddies now, right? what we need on t
the president is in a meeting with a major leader, no, we're working with nay toe now. no, i know i said i wanted a week europe but actually i'm okay with macron and merkel. i realize the transatlantic relationship is important. again, with saudi arabia, with is re israel. they should go whelm and with the pope -- >> they had a spat. >> that was mostly on trump. the pope is not going the try to embarrass trump. >> you say they're layups per this president. you point out the rifts that he has with leaders. you don't thinkyou're a member of nato and the eu and the scandals he's dealing with in the u staets? >> rex
people outside the united states, they're too busy, they're not thinking about that. >> i can tell you that's not remotely plausible. every person e have spoken with since trump has been amended, first thing they ask me is what the hell is happening with your president. right? they're extremely concerned about it. but at the same time, it is not like nato has a plan b instead of the united states. >> this is clearly an opportunity for him to try to say to islam leaders in all of those countries, e oom not an - anti-muslim. >> yes. >> in a speech, as weapon as meetings with them to do something to bring them together. >> good luck on that one. >> okay. but they're coming together for this and they both have a stake in it. >> yes. look. and he said jared's in charge of making it happen. i'm generally skeptical anything can be done. believe that when john kerry made his 12
that happen. >> but they're more committed to a relationship with trump than john kerry. >> the israelis certainly are. >> the saudis too. >> i think it's too entrenchedle that's a step too far. if trump can just get through the meetings. i don't think this is a president we're saying can you get a nobel peace prize. we're saying, can you get through the trip. there is also a lot to be said for his own base in going after "i'm going to make you secure." the saudis are a good place to do that. they don't have to worry about internal ratings. there aren't going to be demonstrations at all. they're going make it a very comfortable place. he's going to give a great speech and they're going to say that was a great speech. >> ian bremmer, thank you. we'll be following it closely. the two leading presidents havefe
rope with the west and the 2015 deal to limit the nuclear program. elizabeth palmer is there this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. voting is well under way here in iran. long lines outside the polling stations. to some extent this election is a ref rehn dem on a nuclear deal. vaious iranians are in favor of it. they want better relations with the united states and the rest of the world along with a tie to foreign investment which so far has not material ietzed. they think it was a sellout and iran should have never accepted any limits on its nuclear program. there's little reliable polling data here in iran, but president rowhani is expected to win by a narrow margin. if he doesn't and a hard-liner becomes president, the united states can certainly expect a more hostile iran especially as the trump administration has already made it clear that it
