your world in 90 seconds. >> the opinions that you cannot indict a president in office, but he could have reached a decision whether or not it was criminal activity. >> the attorney general says bob mueller could have reached a decision on obstruction. >> it's nonsense. he should be, i believe, impeached because he's lied to g by donald trump to be his lawyer, not us. >> president trump will impose escalating tariffs on mexican imports. >> if our neighbors to the south can do more, we will address this crisis. >> r. kelly, se n11 new counts sexual assault and abuse. >> severe storms can flash floods. >> meanwhile, president trump signed an emergency declaration for arkansas. >> i don't think i've ever seen anything quite like this. >> a mother of five from connecticut now missing for one week. reportedly being treated as a

7:04 am
>> reporter: right out of the box, he said he was surprised when the special counsel told him that he was not going to be making a decision on whether or not the president committed a crime of obstruction of justice. he didn't really press him on that, but then he and his lawyers at the department of justice analyzed the evidence mueller gathered and made the decision himself. he said he couldn't exonerate the president. you looked at that evidence and you did. what's the fundamental difference between your view and his? >> well, i think bob said he was not going to engage in the analysis. he was not going to make a determination one way or the other. we analyzed the law and the facts and a group of us spent a lot of time doing that and determined that both as a matter of law, many of the instances would not amount to obstruction.
7:05 am
>> as a matter of law? >> a matter of law. we didn't agree with the legal analysis. a lot of the legal analysis in the report. it did not reflect the views of the department. it was the view of a particular lawyer or lawyers. so we applied what we felt was the right law. >> that decision offered up in a four-page summary opened the attorney general to criticism. the response was you were too soft on the president. that, actually, the special counsel was a little sharper on obstruction. >> just trying to skate the bottom line, that bob mueller identified some episodes. he did not reach a conclusion. he provided both sides of the issue and his conclusion was he wasn't exonerating the president ei. dpeasn't finding a crime further about >> reporter: while barr testified before congress about the special counsel's report, mueller wants the report to
7:06 am
speak for itself and signal he does not want to testify. do you think he should? >> it's up to bob, but i think the line he's drawing, which is he's going to stick to what he said in the report is the proper line for any department official. >> reporter: we asked barr about mueller's final caution. >> that there were multiple systemic efforts to interfere in our election. >> reporter: how is the justice department to ensure this doesn't happen again in 2020? >> yes, well, we do have, i think, an increasingly robust program that is focusing on foreign influence and our election process and i talked recently to the director of the fbi about putting together a special high level group to make sure we're totally prepared for the upcoming elections. >> do you think enough was done in 2016? >> probably not. >> reporter: the president has repeatedly accused former
7:07 am
intelligence officials of dropping the ball by fixating too much on his campaign. >> they were spying, they were spying on our campaign. >> reporter: you testify that you believe spying occurred. >> yes. >> reporter: into the trump campaign. >> yes. >> you've gotten some crism r thword >> i guess it's become a dirty word somehow. it has never been for me. i think there's nothing wrong with spying. the question is always whether it's authorized by law. >> reporter: former intelligence chiefs have said the president has made that word somewhat pajurative. like it's a word, that you're a loyalist. >> it's craziness. if a president uses a word, all of the sudden, it's off bounds. it's a perfectly good english word. i'll continue to use it. >> reporter: what makes you think i need to take a look at this? >> like many other people familiar with intelligence activities, i had a lot of questions about what was going
7:08 am
on. i assume i'd get answers when i went in and i have not gotten answers that were satisfactory and in fact, have probably more questions and that some of the facts that i've learned don't hang together with the official explanations of what happened. >> reporter: what do you mean by that? >> that's all i really will say. things are just not jiving. >> reporter: now, barr said that he believes government interference into the u.s. election is just as dangerous as foreign interference, so that's why he started this new review of the intelligence community's actions leading up to the 2016 election and he said he asked the president that gives him the authority to be declassify certain information that he believes would be in the public interest. >> now that the attorney general has that authority, did he indicate whether he'd be willing to work with the intelligence agencies before deciding what to
7:09 am
declassify? >> reporter: he did. not only was he willing, but he already has. he's already spoken with them and said they're being very supportive of those efforts and he said, you know, he does have the authority to make those decisions on his own and there may be the exceptional circumstances where that would be necessary, but he intends to cooperate and work with them and they are being cooperative and he said he found it amusing to read media reports and complaining and fears about him leaking classified information. he's been in this business 50 years, he said. he started it at cia and knows how to protect classified information and he said he is going to do it. >> all right, janua, thank you very much. more of that exclusive interview in our next hour. he talks about the relationship with the president and if he regrets taking the job as attorney general. president trump's threat to put tariffs on all goods from mexico could push up prices for u.s. consumers. the surprise announcement last night is meant to pressure

lopez is dell zesending a delego the white house to come to a peaceful collusi fuful conclusi remember, he's, quote, not a coward. retaliatory mexican tariffs could mean paying more for limes, avocado, tequila among other goods. >> how are lawmakers responding to this tariff announcement? >> even republicans are condemning this move. yesterday, senator chuck grassley said it is a misuse of presidential tariff authority and republicans are also worried this will be a new road block for the president's new trade deal with canada and mexico, which is just now starting to make its way through congress for approval. tony? >> weijia, thank you very much. a judge in st. louis could decide at any time whether missouri's only abortion clinic can stay open. missouri is one of several states now facing a backlash over controversial abortion limits.

7:13 am
the department director left the door open to negotiate. >> we could talk with the doctors between now and then and reach a resolution as to those issues that we have concerns about, and it might be simple as saying, yeah, we wish that hadn't happened but this is what we'll do in the future to keep it from happening. >> reporter: missouri is one of six states to approve legislation banning abortion within the first eight weeks of president. georgia faces potential losses of more than $2 billion over it. tv shows and movies including "avengers" are filmed there and disney, warner media and cbs corporation have joined netflix in saying they may stop production there if the law goes into effect. pulling more than 92,000 movie and television jobs from the state. none of the laws passed have taken effect yet, so abortion is still available in all 50 states. if the judge denies planned parenthood's restrabiining orde

7:32 am
republic. "cbs this morning saturday" co-host dana reported on this. honestly, it was stomach turning to me. what have you learned? >> it's too common and that's the problem. more than 80% of women who travel alone for work had at least one safety-related concern. in february, we spoke to a woman who was sexually assaulted by a stranger who tricked the front desk to giving her the room key. whether for work or vacation, the women we spoke to are urging others to stay vigilant. >> very difficult. very difficult. reliving. >> reporter: tammy lawrence daly on vacation with her husband at the majestic elegance resort in the dominican republic when she went downtown stairs alone one night in search of a snack. >> i could hear foot follows behind me and before i could turn around, he plowed into the back of me. >> reporter: tammy said the man was wearing a resort uniform.

7:36 am
though to protect themselves? because i do think you have a false sense of security when you're on vacation. especially if you're staying at a really, quote, nice place. >> you do and we talked about these things when we did that initial story. you have to remember, when you go to that front desk, don't say your name out loud, give them your id. other things you can do, if they say your room number out loud, ask for a different room number. in case someone will hear it. you can give the illusion that someone else is with you. a light on. the women i was talking with, sort of a difference of opinion. some ask so they know where it is and then even the state department, before they go to countries they don't know, a lot of women did international travel. they said, also know the culture. don't forget the different things in different cultures mean something. if you walk down the street as a single woman smile, that can mean something, really, if you look at somebody directly in the eye. >> dana, thank you. we appreciate it. it's frustrating that women have

2019 hurricane season officially starts tomorrow. government forecasters predict 9 to 15 named storms. 2 to 4 could become major hurricanes, category three or higher. the ability to predict those storms may be threatened by the next generation of cell phones. meg oliver on the atlantic coast in sea bright, new jersey, an area that is familiar with the devastating hurricane. >> reporter: anthony, good morning. you are right. people here remember the impact of hurricane sandy and how much they relied on early warnings
7:42 am
from forecasters. scientists worry future 5g technology interfere with satellite data they rely on. on the other hand, federal regulators are racing to deploy 5g technology. hurricane season is here and with it, the potential for the next round of deadly and devastating storms. but this year, meteorologists say they're also keeping an eye on a new threat. >> 5g will change everything. >> reporter: the powerful cell phone network known as 5g which will deliver information up to 100 times faster than today's mobile networks. >> we push as far as we can push it. >> this is a huge concern because we fear that advances in weather forecasting are at risk. >> reporter: meteorologists are concerned because some of the frequencies the federal trade commission plans to use are located next to the only
7:43 am
frequency where weather satellites can detect water vapor, a critical component for accurate forecasting. they're worried it wilaccute. s >>ep howtical is ntial, i90% of models come from weather satellites. if you remove a good portion of the satellite data, you're crippling our ability to make accurate weather forecasts. >> reporter: that could mean less time to prepare for major storms. >> if 5g were in place during hurricane sandy and had the interference many of us expected, we may not have seen nine days out and maybe only three days out it was going to make a hard left from new york into new jersey. >> reporter: the fcc declined an on-camera interview but the group representing the wireless industry called the meteorologist concerns an absurd claim with no science, saying
7:44 am

interference interference and the u.s. election is just as dangerous as foreign interference. >> president trump says mexico could stop illegal an could penalize mexico. 5% tariffs will kick in on june 10th. >> five other states are one closure away from having zero clinics. they're beginning to pave a path to challenge roe v. wade under a conservative supreme court. >> it is a day "star wars" fans have been waiting for four years. today's galaxy edge opens to the public at disney land in california. >> there is a millennium falcon ride, a custom droid shop. you can drink in cantina. it is all totally free. i'm just kidkidding. you may have to sell your kids to get in. >> we don't want to sell our children. >> some day. >> no, no.
8:02 am
we love our children. i'm gayle king with anthony mason and t rney general william barr highlights why he opened anigio. barr says there is evidence that makes him believe that senior government officials may have acted improperly to authorize surveillance of president trump's 2016 campaign and said that led to the spying on the campaign. >> critics say barr is being too l loyal to the president. how is barr responding to complaints about his work? >> well, the attorney general, he wouldn't really talk specifics about what he has seen that led him to open that investigation. but he said he is not swayed by criticism and he won't back off doing what he thinks is right. >> the second attorney general in history has served twice. i think the first one was back in 1850.
8:03 am
>> right. >> you're an established figure in a way. you had a long career in washington. you're working for a man who is not establishment. and some of his tweets about officials and the rule of law, how do you react when you see this. are you on twitter? >> i'm not on twitter. and every once in a while a tweet is brought to my attention. but my experience with the president is we have a good professional working relationship, we talk to each other, if he has something to say to me, i figure he'll tell me directly. i don't look to tweets -- i don't look at them as directives or official communications with the department. >> when you came into this job, i mean, you had a good reputation on the right and the left. you're now someone who is accused of protecting the president and enabling the president, lying to congress. did you expect that coming in. >> in a way i did expect it. i realize we live in a crazy
8:04 am
hyperpartisan period of time. i knew that it would only be a matter of time if i was behaving responsibly and calling him as i see him that i would be attacked. people only care about who it helps, who it benefits, whether my side benefits or the other side benefits. everything is gauged by politics. and as i say, that's antithetical to the way the department runs and any attorney general in this period is going to end up losing a lot of political capital. and i realize that. and that's one of the reasons that i ultimately was persuaded may be i should take it on. because i think it -- my stage in life, it really doesn't make any difference. >> end of your career or -- >> i'm at the end of my career. >> it is a reputation you worked your whole life on, though. >> yeah, but everyone dies. and i'm not, you know, i don't believe in the idea that immortality comes by, you know,
8:05 am
having owed -- over the centuries. >> you don't regret taking the job? >> no. in many ways i would rather be back to my old life. but i think i love the department of justice. i love the fbi. i think it is important that we not in this period of intense partisan feeling destroy our institutions. i think one of the ironies today is that people are saying that it is president trump that is shredding our institutions. i really see no evidence of that. from my perspective, the idea of resisting a democratically elected president and basical basically -- really changing the norms on the grounds that we have to stop this president, that's where the shredding of our norms and our institutions is occurring. >> now, throughout our conversation, there is one theme that really emerged. barr sees his actions since he took office including clearing
8:06 am
the president of obstruction when the special counsel declined to do so as really standing up for the rule of law. anthony. >> jan what did the attorney general tell you about why he decided to summarize the special counsel's report rather than release it when he first received it? >> that was some news there. i was surprised by something he talked about on that as well. that was not the plan. he had asked the special counsel's office over a period of weeks and was led to believe that the special counsel's office was working to identify that sensitive grand jury material that could not be released by law to the public or congress. he expected the report when he got from the special counsel to have that material identified so he could turn it around and release it. pretty much in its entirety. when they got the report at the department of justice, none of that material is identified to his surprise. but he said the public wouldn't wait weeks while they figured out what that was. he had to get something out
8:07 am
quickly, people were camping out at the justice department, media, intelligence officials were wildly speculating. he released that summary, he said it was never intended to go in the nooks and crannies of the report. while they work to identify that grand jury information and that was not the plan. if he had gotten what he thought he was getting from the outsaid, the four page summary wouldn't have been necessary. >> jan, thank you. hear more of jan's interview with attorney general barr on today's "cbs this morning" podcast. and monday, jan goes with barr to a remote alaskan native village to learn about the unique challenges in those sparsely populated communities. the winner's trophy in the scripps national spelling bee will have to be split eight ways. they should all get a trophy. can't be too hard. how one competitor was left wondering not only how it would end, but when. plus, a new food movement changing the recipe for restaurants and giving african-american chefs more
