7:12 am
news that shortly after james comey was fired as fbi chief, president trump asked the number two at the fbi who he voted for in 2016. something that will surely be of interest to robert mueller. >> paula, thank you so much. the senate's top democrat has changed his mind about paying for a wall along mexico's border. minority leader chuck schumer offered to go along with president trump's demand less than a week ago. now schumer says the wall is off the table. the president responded on twitter last night, saying if there is no wall, there is no daca. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. so schumer argues that the president scuttled that deal they were crafting so he's scuttling his offer. now that the two sides are embarking on new negotiations here on capitol hill. but it's also true that democratic political considerations have changed. last week, they were trying to show that they were bending over backwards to try to avert a shutdown. so they let it be known that
7:13 am
schumer was willing to meet the president's full request for border wall funding, about $25 billion in exchange for legal protections for immigrants brought to this country illegally as children. but now, they are taking a tougher stance to try to pacify a furious liberal base, activists who say democrats caved on government funding for nothing more than a promise from the gop leader to hold a vote on dreamers next month. congressional negotiators now have just 15 days to cut a dreamer deal. and republicans say schumer's backtrack is going to slow things down. democrats argue, john, that republicans have been slow walking these talks for months. >> thanks, nancy. looks like a solutions is a long way off. save the children's office is the newest target for terrorists in afghanistan after a suicide car bombing and rampage this morning. at least two people were killed

7:15 am
yet. >> reporter: seven years ago, the taliban claimed responsibility for a similar attack on the intercontinental which left at least 21 dead. more recently, 40 people were killed last month in the bombing of a cultural center. and 150 in a truck bombing last may. after 16 years of war and 2,400 american combat deaths, the afghan capital is so unsafe, visitors have to take a helicopter from the airport to the u.s. embassy. and the blast walls around the city keep getting higher. >> it's a country at war. and it's a capital that is under attack. >> reporter: general john nicholson, the top american commander in afghanistan, told lara logan of "60 minutes" the new u.s. strategy relies on afghan troops to do the fighting, backed up by american air strikes. there are 13,000 u.s. troops in afghanistan. nicholson said there are no plans for any major increases. >> this is it, right? there's no more, this is the end game? >> yes, this is the end game.
7:16 am
this is a policy that can deliver a win. >> reporter: a win means forcing the taliban to negotiate an end to the fighting. and nicholson estimates it will take two years for the new strategy to produce results. in the meantime, kabul will remain a target for high profile attacks not just by the taliban but by any of the 21 terrorist groups that operate in afghanistan. >> david, thank you. the ncaa is opening an investigation into how michigan state handled sexual abuse allegations against former u.s. olympic director larry nassar. nass areas employ nassar was employed by the university at the time he sexually assaulted girls. more than 150 victims have given impact statements in court since last week. more are speaking right now ahead of nassar's expected sentencing later today. dr. jon lapook is here, he's been following the story. jon, good morning. >> good morning, gayle.

♪ good morning to our viewers in the west. it's wednesday, january 24th, 2018. welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead, what we're learning about a meeting president trump had with one of his top law enforcement officials. plus, the risk of taking some herbal supplements. dr. tara narula will be here to talk about the potentially dangerous interactions with prescription medication. but first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. another small town in america is mourning the victims of a school shooting and asking why it happened. >> investigators including the fbi are trying to figure out why this student walked into his school and opened fire. >> what was going through your head while all of this was happening? >> terror. i was scared.
8:01 am
there were people running that were shot. the white house says the president is also eager to speak with special counsel something they believe would signal this is finally wrapping up. schumer argues that the president scuttled the deal they were crafting so he's scuttling his offer. >> many of the victims accuse michigan state university and usa gymnast micks of allowing the abuse to last for years. >> the trump administration is five months into a new afghan strategy, so far it's been unable to stop terrorists from killing american citizens and others in kabul. >> this morning i guess you heard the news, meryl streep was nominated for an academy award. [ applause ] yes. yeah. and then she was nominated for a second academy award for acting surprised that she was nominated for the first one. amazing. so convincing. >> i believed it. i believed it. >> i think you hope but you
8:02 am
never know. >> she deserved it. it was a terrific movie and terrific portrayal. >> we like all things meryl streep here. i'm gayle king with john dickerson and norah o'donnell. investigators are asking a 15-year-old suspect why he allegedly walked into his western kentucky high school and opened fire. the gunfire caused chaos as students began arriving at marshal county high school in benton, kentucky. two other 15-year-olds bailey holt and preston cope were killed. earlier we spoke to tristan klein who helped save one of his friends who was wounded. >> sadly you lost two of your classmates. nobody really knows or is talking about exactly what a possible motive could be. what are you hearing from your friends who were there on the scene? >> yeah, it's not -- i mean a lot of people aren't talking about it. we're trying to stick to the positives, you know, be together and just be there for the people that need us instead of really thinking about the whole shooter situation. we're going to have to end up forgiving him. >> tristan, you said you are
8:03 am
going to have to end up forgiving the shooter. tell me what you mean? >> well, you know, you got to -- somehow we will have to get over it. god is love and in perfect love there is no fear. so we'll get over it. eventually. it takes time. he was a person too. >> amazing. 14 other students were wounded and four more were hurt when they were trampled trying to get away. the suspect arrested at the scene and he has not been identified. a county attorney says the student will be charged with two counts of murder and multiple counts of attempted murder. probably in the next 48 hours. the plan is to try him as an adult. >> i'm always amazed when something this tragic happens and in the beginning people can think about forgiveness at this early, during the process of the grief. >> yeah. >> i marvel at that. >> grace is an amazing thing. >> it is. the special counsel in the russia investigation is close to questioning president trump.
8:04 am
robert mueller spoke last week with attorney general jeff sessions, the first known cabinet member to be interviewed. the president says he's not worried about that conversation. cbs news confirms mueller also interviewed fired fbi director james comey. paula reid is outside fbi headquarters in washington. paula, good morning. the fact that the special counsel is ready to interview president trump, does that suggest this investigation could be wrapping up? >> that's what the white house would like to have us believe, but the fact is, every witness the special counsel talks to, every piece of evidence they receive, it opens up new questions, new lines of inquiries so you never know how long something like this is going to go. but even if it does wrap up in the next few months the fact is, the two people we have going to trial that won't happen until the fall. so the russia investigation will continue to hang over this white house through the rest of the year. >> and paula, this questioning is about obstruction, which is a slightly separate from the russia investigation. the white house has said the president is not under investigation or they have said
8:05 am
this. if he is questioned, does that change whether he is under investigation or is there a distinction there? >> look, not everyone who is questioned by the special counsel is under investigation. in fact, most of them are just providing evidence and sharing what they know. when it comes to the president, we know we have confirmed that special counsel robert mueller is looking into possible obstruction of justice by the president, so saying the president is not under investigation, that's just spin. >> paula, it's being reported that president trump asked then acting fbi director andrew mccabe who he voted for when he was talking to him in the oval office. why would that be significant? >> it's incredibly significant because the fbi is supposed to be a nonpartisan organization and as i just said, the special counsel is looking into possible obstruction of justice in the firing of james comey and this purported loyalty pledge that the president asked for from comey. if he's asking the number two at the fbi who he voted for that is going to be a significant interest to robert mueller and he will have to decide is that
8:06 am
evidence of obstruction of justice or just bad manner. >> paula, thanks for taking that up for us. president trump is making a huge impact on the nation's courts one year into his term. with help from republicans in the senate, the president won confirmation for 23 federal judges including a supreme court justice, 12 circuit court judges and 10 district court judges. that one-year total is far more than the number president obama appointed at this point in his presidency. jan crawford is outside the supreme court. jan, good morning. >> well, good morning john. you know supreme court nomination, i mean that can be a president's most lasting legacy. although president trump has had a contentious relationship at times with the federal judiciary he's already made a lasting impact. he's put one justice on the supreme court nearly two dozen judges on the lower courts and that is just in year one. when president trump nominated judge neil gorsuch to the supreme court. >> congratulations. >> reporter: he delivered on a
8:07 am
key campaign promise to replace the late justice antonin scalia with a solid conservative. >> you got to go for trump. supreme court justices. >> reporter: in 2016, 56% of republican voters said the supreme court was the most important factor in their support for donald trump. but the white house is also making its mark on the lower courts where the president is looking to fill 145 vacancies nationwide. >> what the president is doing with the courts is truly transformative. >> reporter: leonard leo an outside adviser to the president on judges and helps lead the conservative federalist society. >> these are people who believe in self-government, that most of the big issues in our country need to be decided by the people and their elected representatives. >> reporter: there have been missteps at the district court level. >> have you ever tried a jury trial? >> i have not. >> civil? >> no. >> reporter: two of the president's nominees were forced to withdraw over questions about their qualifications. on the appeals courts the new judges are highly credentialed conservative powerhouses what
8:08 am
you expect from a traditional republican president. democrats say it's not qualifications but their philosophy that could lead to a rollback of civil rights. >> an alarming trend of more and more extreme judicial candidates. >> we have seen president trump nominate people far outside of the judicial mainstream. >> the goal is not just to get a few ultraconservative judges on our federal courts. it is to capture the entire judicial branch. >> reporter: leo says the judicial battle shows elections have consequences. >> the president made it very clear the kinds of people he was going to nominate and that's what he's delivering. now with republicans in control of the senate filling those 145 vacancies is within reach, but if democrats take back the senate, that could complicate things, especially if another justice retires while president trump is still in office. gayle? >> always interesting. thank you very much, jan. illinois senator tammy duckworth will be the first u.s. senator to give birth while in office. she announced she is pregnant
