here. >> special councsel to the president tie cobb said they're fully committing with mr. mueller. >> president trump says he wanted the investigation to have a truly honest outcome. he ridiculed his moments in rally in west virginia just last night. >> the reason why democrats only talk about the totally made-up russia story is because they have no message, no agenda, and no vision. have you seen any russians in w or ohio have you? they can't beat us at the voting booths so they're trying to cheat us out of future and the future that you want.
and cain ain core of "face the nation" john dickerson from washington. good morning. the lawyers have described this as standard operating procedure. is the grand jury just that? >> it is that, but it could be a whole lot more. what this really means is it doesn't mean that the president is in any new danger. it doesn't necessarily mean that the grand jury -- that there are going to be any indictments, but what it does mean is the administrator is going to wear this heavy cloak of having dangerous disclosers and the grand jury and who's in it. eights going to be wearing that heavy koetd for a few more months. it's a distraction, an invitation for prtz to react in hisful way, and as we get into the election next year, it's more changes for republicans if there's a continuing talk before the grand jury. >> john, can we ask
these leaks, phone conversations between the president and turnbull and also enrique pena nieto of mexico? i think it strikes as a big deal when private information gets leaked and it's out there. what will do you make of this and will the foreign leaders stop calling the white house in general if they think it's out there? >> it is a big deal. presidents should be able to have conversations in a free and public way. so much is restrained because everybody is watching every minute. it makes it very hard to get any business done. to have these kinds of transcripts out there is really terrible. it's probably breaking the law. but also, you know, it's a sign in this administration that somebody wants to do the president harm or embarrass him in any way. there have been lots and lots o
weeks, but this one of a different order and despite the fact that they've gotten rid of those at the white house and there's been a hunt for leakers, this is still going on. it's a bad internal thing for white house as well to have people in the sl doing things look this aimed at embarrassing the president. >> the former general taking control of the white house. it says mr. kelly cut us after rambling advisers after seconds. he's booted out lingering staff members. will these changes have an effect on what we've seen so far? >> well, they should because they are bringing the administration in line with what is essentially the practices the previous chiefs of staff have learned over time. work in the white house. h.r. haldeman and nixon wrote memos saying do all this stuff before the nixon administration. they're behind the times a bit at the white house in putting this kind of
place, but it should help because the presidency is not a place of improvisation. and if you're going to have an improvisational president, then everybody else has to work absolutely in sifrpg with each other and it appears that's what they're toning. >> quickly, there were two bills introduced. will these pass? >> i don't know if they'll pass. they are an interesting development. this move by congress to essentially rein in the president, to take what used to be norms and standarded that no pretty would cross and try to basically codify them into law. we saw russia do it on these sanctions this week. this is congress asserting itself with the president who has shown a willingness to try to cross some traditional boundaries. >> john dickerson, thank you very much. we'll see you on sunday because

republicans before knew they didn't have their support. >> he addressed those who say he shouldn't work for the president. >> i work with him because i represent the people of arizona, all of them, republicans, democrats, independents, libertarian, vegetarian, whoever they are, and so i think we've got to get back. we talked about this earlier. to a degree of debate and respect and cooperation and results because right now we don't have the results. >> mccain said bipartisanship would produce better results. an oregon's family came about in an untraditional way. ahead we hear from the transgender man who favor birth to a son. how he

>> booming. you're exactly right. it's an incredible time to live there. certainly our outdoor recreation is phenomenal. but companies like tesla, switch, amazon, apple, google are all investing and building there. >> why is that? we heard them talk about legal immigration and highly skilled jobs. what is it about reno that you think is selling itself? >> 320 days of sunshine to start and when i got here this morning, downpour and rain. i was kind of asking everything how many days of sunshine does reno have. but really to be honest with you, it's our proximity to the bay area. median home prices are 350,000. $1.5 million in san francisco. so it's much more affordable to do business in reno and obviously less government regulations has been important. and so we really -- we've also looked at hospitality, right? we've done a phenomenal job
we're not just the gaming mecca anymore and tech companies are realizing that. >> you're gong toed a 50,000 new jobs in the region in just five years. that's what you've done. what can other cities learn? >> i think cutting the red tape is really important. when i got into office, unemployment was at 12%. now we're down to 3.9% in reno and it really is about streamlining the process and talking to them saying, hey, how can we help you. government does not do a very good job of doing that. we certainly learned our lesson in nevada and it's paying off. >> you think going down that road a little bit that when it comes to health care, something that any employer looks at, that congress is moving a bit too quick for you. >> absolutely. right now mayors across the country are saying, hey, you really need to slow this down. it's not a partisan issue for mayors. it's for people. i think i can
i know what it's like to take a life-saving medication and see people at stores and little league that are panicked by this. mayors across the country say, we need to slow down and bring mayors to the table in washington. that's something we have not been part of the promise. i will tell you, the obama administration did that greatlet he really sat down with mayors, talked to cabinet members, and we were really part of the conversation, whether it's tax reform or infrastructure films. we need to get back to basics. we're at ground zero in our city as the president wants to move this along quickly, a pull for sudsidy. what does that mean for reno? >> it would be absolutely devastating. we were one of the highest nations of uninsured at 3%. we're down to 12%. we know how drastic that would be forhealth care in my state, but it's all
we're incredibly nervous about it and i hear these phone calls of sheer panic from my constituents. this is very real. we are saying slow it down, bring mayors to the team table, we need to be part of the solution. again, we're at ground zero. mayors laugh because there's no democratic or republican way to clean its streets, right? again, that's why mayors are very important to be there that you, according to a 2014 study, had the highest proportion of undocumented immigrants of any u.s. state and the largest share in its work-force. >> right. >> for you in reno, what does that mean? what are those jobs? >> that's huge. for families, this is something and another reason why it's so important in nevada. we rely on tourism so heavily as well. we rely on travel bans and thinks like that. >> for the latest
>> exactly and jobs. and so we get incredibly nervous about that. but, again, hearing the sheer panic from families this that would shatter them. so, again, we need to be part of this discussion and we really haven't been to the magnitude that we have been in the past. so it makes us very nervous. like i said, you can hear the sheer pan ek in some of my constituents' voices when they call my office because that's the first phone call they make to mayors. >> my money's on reno. >> there you go. come visit us. >> reno, nevada. >> i'm so impressed. >> i never said it wrong to begin with. i keep trying to mess them up. >> mayor, thank you so much. >> thank you so much for having me. major league baseball could smash the record for home runs set nearly 20 years ago. ahead, the growing debate

getting ball over the fence consistently, you're foung to get the biggest boost. >> reporter: in an e-mail to "cbs this morning," a spokesperson for rawlings, the manufacturer of every major league baseball wrote, mlb has not asked us to change or alter the ball in any shape or fashion, and we haven't. >> i think the game ebbs and flows. on tuesday baseball commissioner rob manfred offered his theory. >> we bigger, stronger athletes like all sports. i don't think it's surprising there's an emphasis of strikeouts and emphasis on power hits that give more home runs and less balls in play. >> reporter: major league baseball says nothing to see here. >> right. >> is that defensible? >> well, if you look carefully at what they say, they'll say it's within the legal limits for baseball, which i don't dispute. the problem is that those legal limits are v
you can have a ball at the lower end of what's allowed and the upper end and those balled could travel 49 feet different in distance. >> there it goes. >> reporter: it is worth noting that baseball hit a four-decade scoring slump just three years ago. in 2014, 57 players hit 20 or more homer. that nearly doubled to 111 last year. >> the timing is somewhat suspicious because it came after this blow-off when everyone was worried about how baseball was going to get home runs back into the game. >> way back. >> i'm seeing balls hit to places in ball parks that i've never seen in my entire life and i've been around it since i was 22. >> ron darling is a broadcaster and pitched for the mets when they won the world series in 1986. >> you think something's going on. i
i've touched a lot of baseballs. i've held them. >> we gave him a ball from 2014 and 2016, balls that seemed so similar. >> this seem like a cue ball to me and it feels being a former pitcher a little too hard for my liking. i don't know. it's really what's inside the baseball. they keep telling you what's right and it's hard not to believe it. >> it's fun for kids to watch, the in crease in home runs. >> which ball did he say? >> he could tell the difference in the seams but he's talking about the inside as well. he could tell the difference. we couldn't tell the difference. but he's been working with them for decades. rawlings says they're not making anything different, that they're all within the guidelines. i think the guideline is so large, that's what's up. >> did you have fun doing that? >> i hate baseball. i hate it.
