7:03 am
donald trump is lashing out as the fbi moves to the white house. he used twitter to attack its credibility. he said this weekend the fbi's reputation is the worst in history. he responded with a quote from his own capitol hill testimony this year. comey tweeted this. i want the american people to know this truth. the fbi is honest the fbi is strong, and the fbi is and always will be independent. margaret brennan is at the white house with this intensifying feud. margaret, good morning. >> good morning. it is stunning for any president to publicly rebuke the law enforcement agency but president trump has been harshly critical of the fbi's handling of the probe of his campaign's activities. >> what has been shown is no collusion. >> president trump insisted over the weekend that his campaign did not coordinate with russia to influence the 2016 election. >> there's been absolutely no collusion. >> his former national security had
7:04 am
just pleaded guilty to lying the fbi about his russian contacts. the president then unleashed an attack on the fbi saying on s: twitter, its reputation is in tatters and accused it of a dishonest investigation of hillary clinton. former director james comey stop his request to investigate michael flynn. the president denied that account but seemed to suggest he was aware that flynn had lied to the fbi, tweeting saturday quote, i had to fire general flynn because he lied to the vice president and the fbi. which raises new questions about what the president knew and when. south carolina republican lindsey graham warned the post appeared incriminating. >> you tweet a comment regarding ongoing criminal investigations at your own peril. i were you,
7:05 am
mr. president trump. >> he said in an unusual move it was the president's lawyer john dowd helped right that tweet. congressman adam schiff said it hurts the president. >> he wanted to protect mike flynn, lying on his behalf alose case of obstruction ofti for the white house to say somebody else wrote the president's tweet, but sources say in this case it was dowd who was the principal wordsmith and this is just a simple cause of sloppy phrasing. bianna we'll see what's happening here but the white house is clearly frustrated. this has created more confusion about what the president knew and when. >> strong rebuttal from james comey. margaret thank you. the agent was reassigned last summer after it was discovered he sent text messages that may have criticized the president. paula reid is outside the district courthouse with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this ajelkt was a top fbi

investigator working alongside special counsel robert mueller. peter mursak was reassigned after politically sending text messages to another fbi lawyer lisa page. he was a key player in the investigation of hillary clinton's research. this was such a significant development the special counsel's office issued a statement saying immediately upon learning of the allegations, it removed peter strzok from the investigation. they're questioning the credibility of the e-mail probe and the ongoing mueller investigation. president trump tweeted over the weekend, now it all starts to make sense. attorney general jeff sessions who has recused himself from the russian investigation has always weighed in. he says he wants to ensure all federal investigations are conducted without bias or favoritism and that he has addressed this with the fbi
7:07 am
director. >> all right paula. thank you so much. house and senate republicans are racing to combine their separate tax reform bills. gop lawmakers will work this week to try to sort out the differences in the two plans. republicans want a finished bill on president trump's desk by christmas. nancy cordes is on capitol hill with the hurdles they face and whether they'll be able to wrap a bow around it. >> good morning. house and senate republicans have been working behind the scenes to reconcile these two bills even before the senate passed its bill early saturday morning and they believe they can get that process done within a week. >> the middle income taxpayers, an overwhelming majority of them will get tax relief. >> reporter: mitch mcconnell insisted melding the two tax bills will not take too much time. >> i'm very optimistic about it. >> he'll be working with house gop leaders like steve scalise,
7:08 am
highly motivated to pass a bill by christmas. >> when you look at the dichss they're not that big. >> there are some key discrepancyies discrepancies. the senate bill keeps the current seven tax brackets while the house bill condenses it to four. the senate bill eliminated the individual mandate, a move likely to end up in the final product, and it's unclear what will happen with the medical expense deduction. the house eliminates them but the senate suspended them tell particularly. susan collins was responsible for that last-minute amendment. >> the amendment i added on helping retirement security for public employees improved the bill. >> changed like those were made in pen just hours before the senate vote early saturday morning. >> this is a taxpayer. >> democrats took to social media to rail against the rushed process. >> can you tell me what that
7:09 am
word is? if you can, you've got better eyes than corporation paren, dangerous? that can't be right. >> some of those last-minute revisions surprised the house. trying to meld these two bills is going to be a very delicate process because they can't do anything that's going to jep died gop votes in the house and particularly in the senate gayle, where they have just one vote to spare. >> all right. that's not a lot. thank you very much nancy. the senate tax bill has steps for provisions for special interests. car dealerships would be able to fully deduct car loans thanks to rand paul. and paul ryan suggests parents
7:10 am
can pay for 1-12th grade private school tuition with tax-free college savings. >> some of the biggest winners in these bills are pass-through. hay don't pay corporate taxes. instead they file that income on their individual tax return. the senate's tax bill is a boon for oil and gas firms who would be able to take advantage of the lower tax rates on pass-through businesses. the provision was added by texas senator john cornyn whose campaign has received more than $1 million from the gas and oil industrial since 2013. >> we're going to find some stinky stuff in here. >> real estate organizations
7:11 am
would also benefit. according to tax policy provider seth hannan. >> he's sort of the poster child of the wealthy businessman or wealthy billionaire who's going get a massive windfall from this budget. mick mulvaney defended the measures. >> a lot of the deductions are gone. >> the bill would open up some of the national arctic wildlife drilling proposed by senator lisa murkowski. >> this is good for alaska but more importantly it's good for the country. >> another amendment spared cruise lines from paying higher taxes. alaska senator dan sullivan said it would help communities and businesses that rely on tourism. >> this is slap/sloppy. i've never seen a bill like
7:12 am
this. >> it appears a research and development tax credit was accidentally eliminated. norah, you can expect more surprises as the lawmakers finish the bill that they've already passed. >> thank you. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here with what this means for families. good morning. this is so important. let's talk about how it affects individual families first. >> we need to understand this is a bill that's very nuanced. it matters not just who you are and how much money you do earn but how do you earn that money? do you have a pass-through organization or do you live in a state where you're losing your state and local tax deduction. do you have a mortgage? it's a very strange bill that in the packet when we've done tax reform and deductions, i remember it was a much clearer this is a winner to take a long time to really uhsñrnderstand who who loses. >> the big difference in t two plans. >> the big differences going
7:13 am
down, we know that the tax brackets are very important. so in the house plan they have four tax brackets. they maintain that top bracket at 39.6 -- the house plan goes to four brackets and the senate maintains seven brackets and the top bracket goes down. mortgage interest deduction. house plans say million. the senate plan says no we're going to leave it at a million. what we really know is around corporations. in corporations they both are slashing the corporate rate. it goes from 35% to ahead. >> e was going to say tax cuts historically are very popular. this one is at 30% approval. why do you think so many americans disapprove of this tax cut? >> i think it's becoming clear that it's very much tilted toward corporations and the wealthiest americans. if you're upper middle class, you could be a loser in this bill and important
7:14 am
to put out there and if you're very poor you would be a lo have seen over the last at all-time highs, it's hard to understand in your belly why did corporations need this tax cut. making a better simpler, plainer, but at a moment where r market in the history of the united states economy, it's hard to that. >> it stileems very confusing. even the people who pass it are ill t figure out how they passe >> who really wins and loses? i heard you talking about two losing situations. who are the losers? >> if you're 10% of the earner you're a huge earner. the tax brackets are going to go down. i think those people win. i think corporations huge winners. pass-through corporations. that means you have a big law firm with lots of partners. money is going to pass through. they're winners. whether they take the money that they save and repsychet it into the economy and boost the
7:15 am
economy substantially, i think that is a huge question yet to be answered. a lot of academics say they don't believe this is a long-term growth incentive. >> randall stevens the head of at&t promises more jobs. you have them on the record saying they'll have more jobs. >> we'll see where they come up with the jobs. in the next hour mick mulvaney will respond to criticisms of the tax bill only on "cbs this morning." >> only we can say that. only on "cbs this morning." a drugstore giant has announced a deal to buy aetna. the price about $69 billion. jericka done cab is here with a blockbuster deal and what it could mean for consumers nationwide. good morning. >> good morning, gayle. in a joint statement they call it a national evolution. experts say the move could reinvent the way you go to the doctor. for years cvs has beenor

if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. oh, sorry i'm late, sir. i had a doctor's appointment. when you said you were at the doctor but your shirt says you were at a steakhouse... that's when you know it's half-washed. now from downy fabric conditioner comes downy odor protect with 24-hour odor protection. downy's powerful formula conditions fibers to lock out odors all day. hey, your shirt's making me hungry. ha ha, derek. downy and it's done.
