5:00 am
good morning. and welcome to "cbs this morning: saturday." i'm rebecca jarvis. >> and i'm jeff glor. we begin with the politics of faith. mitt romney delivers the commencement address at virginia's liberty university, the largest evangelical college in the country. >> it has caused debate in the conservative christian community because some believe his mormon faith is a cult. chip reid is in washington with a look at how romney hopes to bolster his credentials.
5:01 am
>> reporter: good morning. president obama plunged into the boiling controversy over same-sex marriage earlier this week, but when mitt romney speaks to liberty university today, controversy over religion and politics is exactly what he'll be trying to avoid. during the republican primary campaign, mitt romney struggled to win over evangelical voters, in part because of his mormon faith, which some evangelical leaders have called a cult. it's no surprise when mitt romney gives the commencement speech today at liberty university, he'll be facing some skeptics in the odd yen. >> i think there's a lot of mixed emotions. some are like, oe we wish we would have had the chris han peeker come. >> reporter: some were critical on the facebook page after the selection of romney was announced. romney is expected to speak out to ivee ivan gal -- evangelical.
5:02 am
according to excerpts released by the campaign, it will be highly personal with stories about his 18 grandchildren and how he never once regretted missing any experience or opportunity in business to be with his wife and five sons. romney advisers say he also will avoid explicit mention of gay marriage. in an interview friday with a cbs affiliate in charlotte, north carolina, he repeated his belief that marriage is between a man and a woman but then added -- >> you know, i just don't think this becomes a hot political issue dividing our nation. instead, i believe we should respect the viewpoints of various people and move on. >> reporter: move on, he says, to the economy. but many conservative christians are far from being ready to move on. in fact, on sunday evangelical pastors across the nation are expected to make their feelings about gay marriage very clear from the pulpit. rebecca and jeff? >> chip reid, thank you. by the way, we'll have more
5:03 am
on this big weekend in politics in a moment. first, a look at some of oregon top stories this morning. the fallout from some out of control air traffic controllers. there's a new report slamming the faa for being slow to respond to accusations that some air traffic controllers watched movies, even took naps while they were on duty. monday's a big day for john edwards. a judge refused to throw out campaign corruption charges yesterday, so his defense lawyers are preparing to call their first witnesses. she's being called the mini monet of the art world. just 5 years old and her paintings are selling for, get this, more than $25,000. why he had is stirring up a whole lot of controversy. now back to the top story. politics of faith. with us from washington discussing mitt romney's commencement speech at liberty university and reaction to president obama's endorsement of same-sex marriage, major garrett. good to see you. >> good morning.
5:04 am
>> some upset at liberty university over the romney commencement. any reason for the campaign to be concerned? >> i don't think so. look at the poll that just came out this week from pew research facility. mitt romney is running 53 percentage points ahead of barack obama among evangelicals who intend to vote in november. at this stage of the campaign -- it's earlier than john mccain was polled on this, who was 36 percentage points over obama in 2008. john kerry got 57% more of evangelical vote than john kerry. right now mitt romney, though there are skeptics been the evangelical, is running as well as george w. bush did in 2004 and much far ahead than john mccain in 2008. that's a positive sign for the romney campaign. thursday that romney may have bullied someone in high school, one day later now has the
5:05 am
campaign handled this the right way? >> they've handled it the way the candidate wants to handle it. i just let the public do that. on this story the public is paying attention. i've been on a lot of talk radio the last couple of days. call ez are aware of this story and paying attention to it. it's something the romney campaign has to internalize. this story has a hook in the voting public. governor romney says he doesn't remember this incident. it seems to me that those who were quoted in this story, many of them, had vivid memories of it. the only one who doesn't remember it is mitt romney. that seems to be complicating the romney's campaign approach to this story. it might have been better to say, it happened, i regret it and actually now in this modern era, bullying is a huge issue in this country and we should address it. this campaign for whatever reason chose not to do that. i think it gave the story a second and third day it might not have had. >> president obama's endorsement of same-sex marriage has helped
5:06 am
his fund-raising in the short term. any idea how that's playing with voters and crucial independents? >> the independents had largely moved to a net positive or acceptance of gay marriage in this country. that's a progression that's happened over the last 15 years. it's not that it accelerated in the last year but more concrete, more noticeable as you look at the survey data approaching november. the president is much safer political terrain than he was two or three years ago. within the constitute yeptcy, very important to his re-election campaign, the gay rights community and those who not gay but support that agenda, this has fired them up and provided a tremendous influx of money, will continue to do that. that's been important as something that was a priority for the obama campaign. they've now achieved it and reap some benefits. >> how much does the romney campaign want to talk about same-sex marriage issue? >> what did chip just say in his piece? in liberty university where you expect romney to bring this forward, he's not going to.
5:07 am
in his answer to that cbs affiliate yesterday, that's move on. the polling data already suggests they're close and tight with the romney campaign and what romney needs to do is persuade independents and they're focusesed on the economy. that's where he's going to head. >> appreciate it. we turn to the latest on a major u.s. intelligence leak and the hunt for the leaker. federal investigators are trying to find out how several news organizations learned that al qaeda was planning to blow up a u.s.-bound airliner with a new type of underwear bomb. and that the chosen bomber was, in fact, a double agent working for the cia. joining us now from west babylon, new york, peter king, chairman of the house homeland security committee. great to have you with us, congressman. good morning. >> good morning, rebecca. thank you. >> what is congress going to do about this? >> well, first of all, i know the house intelligence committee -- i'm a member of the intelligence committee and i
5:08 am
know the chairman, mike rogers s very concerned about this and he's already beginning a preliminary investigation. i have personally called on the fbi to begin a criminal investigation because i've never seen a more tightly held or more highly sensitive operation than this. this was one of the most successful intelligence operations the united states has ever been involved in. even the speaker of the house was not told about it. the chairman of the important committees were not told about it. very few -- very small number of people knew about it, and yet the entire story was leaked to the associated press almost two weeks ago. how that could be allowed to happen, that put lives at risk, imperialed this entire operation, caused the operation to be pulled back before all the information could be obtained and this is literally a crime. this is criminal activity. the fbi has to investigate it. the universe of suspects is much smaller than would usually be because so few people knew about it. no congress, staff member of congress, had any knowledge. >> you brin up universe of
5:09 am
suspects. there's report this is came from a british source. do you believe that? >> you mean as far as leaking the story? >> yes, that the british -- that the leak came from a british individual. >> yeah, i -- that's one of the first things -- if it turns out to be a foreign national, then -- a foreign intelligence service, then obviously in that case, you know, no one in the u.s. is liable. having said that, i know the intelligence services we're dealing with is very angry over this. they don't believe that it was them. you know, we'll have to see. i'm just saying, if it's anyone in the u.s., that's a criminal pursuit. somebody overseas, obviously the fbi wouldn't have jurisdiction. >> you haven't ruled out the fact this could have come from a u.s. citizen? i want to ask you, though, if it was from overseas, aren't we powerless in dealing with this in the future? >> yes. we what we have to do then is file diplomatic protests and use
5:10 am
whatever leverage or influence or pressure we can on that foreign service. most of the foreign services we deal with are straight with us, especially long-term partners we have. i'm not saying which one it is or exactly who it is because this is so classified. if it turn out not to be overseas but here in the u.s. -- again, people i've spoken to, they're more inclined to belief it is here from somebody in the u.s. that has to be investigated all the way. the fbi has to rule everything in and everything out. first of all, beginning the investigation, look overseas, look here. again, since it's more universe, this is not going to be a typical investigation where you have thousands and thousands of people and you have to work your way in. such a small number of people. i think it's going to be -- no investigation is easy. this going to be far less difficult than the average leak investigation. >> representative peter king, thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. >> ra gthank you. on monday john edwards'
5:11 am
lawyers will begin their defense. they haven't said whether edwards or rielle hunter will take the stand. anna werner has more from greensboro, north carolina. >> reporter: john edwards' lawyers tried to get charges thrown out. attorney abby lowell telling the judge, the prosecution's case has holes and they're asking you to be a pothole filler. prosecutors argued there's enough evidence tore jurors to draw a reasonable inference that what edwards did he knew was against the law. the case centers on what edwards knew about the $1 million in donations used to hide his pregnant mistress. in august 2008 he told abc -- >> i've never asked anybody to pay a dime of money, never been told any money has been paid. nothing has been done at my request. >> reporter: but edwards lied about the affair and the baby he fathered and jurors watched that video this week. >> a bad taste was left in the
5:12 am
jury's mouth about john edwards after they saw that video. the defense is going to have to distance the jury from john edwards' lies and focus the attention on the campaign law violations. >> reporter: the battle facing edwards' defense attorneys, how to explain the technicalities of federal election law in the case of a client mired in scandal. >> one of the problems with this case, there are so many sorted details that a jury can get lost and not see this as a federal election law violation case but just a case in which everyone is involved in mud. >> reporter: as prosecutors wrapped up their case thm week, john edwards reportedly turned to his lawyer asking, that's their case? but the judge clearly felt it was enough. on monday, edwards' team gets the chance to begin proving it was not. if they can't, edwards could face 30 years in prison. for "cbs this morning: saturday," anna werner, greens borrow, north carolina. joining us, jeanne casarez,
5:13 am
correspondent for "in session" on treu tv. what are we going to hear? >> i think it's going to be a strong case, a very strong case. >> not only is the team of defense lawyers very strong, but john edwards has a reputation for being a tremendous trial attorney, strategist. i think probably some of the strongest pieces of evidence are going to come from phenomenaler members of the federal election commission. these are people that made decisions of what violated federal campaign laws. they're to take the stand for the defense. that's going to be very strong. >> edwards' quote to his court in lawyer, this is their case? certainly indicates he's confident. >> not so fast. yeah, you're right, he says that, but you should never be that confident. you never know when a yir going to do. john edwards, de know about the money? i think the prosecution established that, he knew about the money. did he know the money was
5:14 am
illegal and still accepted the money and intended to accept the money? we don't have a trial where he said, we're violating federal campaign laws but let's keep the money coming. we don't have that. that would be too easy. >> how confident would you be if you're john edwards? >> you should never be confident up. never know when a jury's going to do, never. >> that's the big unknown, the yir's mind and where their mind will be, also whether or not rielle hunter, we were told she would take the stand, on both the prosecution and defense witness list. what might we hear on the defense side? >> on the defense she would say the money was given as i gift. it was for me, to hide me. he didn't want his wife to know. he wanted this to go on because his wife elizabeth was sick. she had to be kept in the dark. we learned through the prosecution's case, she found out about it. and the money kept coming. even after he disbanded the presidential election hopes, he wanted to be vice president, attorney general, the money kept
5:15 am
coming. >> more chance edwards or hunter testifies? >> john edwards, i don't think he won't. a lot of people do. i think there's been so much tarnish to him, i think it could get worse if he takes the stand. >> it will be tough, probably internally not to to hold himself back. >> he may. he's a talker, a communicator. he may. it's his decision alone. no one can force him to do anything. >> jean casarez, thank you. a move to a troubling complaint about air traffic controllers. a government watch dog group has come down hard on the faa and transportation department. they say the agencies were slow react. joining us from washington is former chairman of national transportation safety board mark rosenkirk. good morning. >> good morning. >> glad you're here. what's the biggest concern here? >> well-being certainly the report that came from the office of the special council dealing
5:16 am
with the rair traffic control center tipped me over as it related to the behavior of the controllers in that particular facility. pthey were on duty, using their cell phones, they were, in fact, leaving their shifts early. they demonstrated insuborder nation to their management. clearly, the kind of behave we saw there was not adding to our safety in the aviation community. >> mark, one thing that caught my mind in this report is the advice from the season front line managers was, you keep your head in the sand. if that's the idea, if that's what things are supposed to be like, how do you even go about addressing a problem like this from a management perspective in. >> that's the disturbing part about this, rebecca. the management seemed to be going along. they seemed to be afraid of the controllers there. the particular individual who went to the office of special council, the whistle-blower, if you will, had been threatened,
5:17 am
his car was vandalized, got demoted. this was a terrible, terrible work environment. >> mark, for the flying public, is there anything that folks who are going to the airport or at the airport can do to be aware of this or make themselves more safe? are they completely relying on others to keep them safe here? >> we do have to rely on these professionals. for the most part, let's be honest, 99.9% of the people working in these jobs are very dedicated. they're very skilled. and they do an excellent job. there are 50,000 operations that occur every day. they occur without incident. they occur routinely. they occur safely. >> in this report, you still have the seven cases where egregious things occur. do you believe it's getting worse? if so, why? >> i don't think it's getting worse. remember, these are cases which are -- which could go back as far as 2010.
5:18 am
what we've seen is a significant improvement. remember, last year we saw a number of controllers that were asleep on their job. that was not because they wanted to come in and fall asleep. it is because of the way the system had been geared. the practices -- once, in fact, the department of transportation and faa really began to look at what was happening out there, they made substantial changes. they added an hour or two to separate the schedules. they would come in and make sure that you couldn't have these four-day fatiguing types of schedules that really were human factor issues rather than real issues of behavior as it related to what the controllers were attempting to do. >> mark, we appreciate your insights. thank you very much. >> good to be with you. actress and singer jennifer hudson thanking prosecutors and others who helped convict her former brother-in-law of murder. a chicago jury found william
