indicate that an explosion is highly unlikely in terms of what brought this plane down. >> a lot of questions about what happened there. thank you vor much. a new report says that president trump's oldest son knew a year ago that russia's government was trying to help his father's campaign. he was told of russia's agenda sent in an e-mail to set up with the campaign meeting with a russian lawyer. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, donald trump jr. has hired a lawyer to help with all matters related to russia and this ongoing fbi investigation. though he has not been formally asked, trump jr. said he is willing to cooperate with congress. >> rest assured, donald trump jr. will be somebody that we want to talk to. >> reporter: senate intelligence committee chairman mike warner called for donald trump jr. to share details with his meeting last june with a russian national who
7:07 am
offer damaging information on hillary clinton. according to the new york times, donald trump jr. had been explicitly told via e-mail that the meaning was part f oa russian government effort to aid his father's candidacy. in response to that allegation a lawyer for trump jr. told cbs news quote, this is much ado about nothing. don jr. had no knowledge as to what specific information, if any, would be discussed. his father knew nothing about it. >> this is the first time the public has seen clear evidence that senior level officials of the trump campaign met with potentially an agent of a foreign government to try to obtain information that would discredit hillary clinton. >> reporter: donald trump jr.'s account has evolved since the meeting was first revealed by the new york times. on saturday trump jr. told the times the meeting was primarily about adoptions. later he admitted damaging information about hillary clinton was the pretext for the encounter. un insisted it was nothing
7:08 am
twitter message. obviously i'm the first person on a campaign to take a meeting to hear info about an opponent. it contradicts several accounts from white house officials. this was kellyi yan conway in december. >> did anyone have any contact with russians trying to meddle with the election. >> absolutely not and i discussed that just last night. those conversations never happened. >> reporter: in february when the president was asked directly whether anyone on the campaign had contacts with the russians he answered for himself only. >> well, i had nothing to do with it. i have nothing to do with russia. >> reporter: former campaign chair as well as the president's son-in-law were also present in that meeting. something that kushner's representatives initially overlooked but did recently disclose as part of a background check for his security clearance. cbs news chief washington correspondent and face the nation anchor john
7:09 am
joins us now. good morning. >> good morning. >> lay out the risk for donald trump jr. and donald trump sr. >> well, the first risk is on the question of collusion. the big part of this investigation, it doesn't necessarily show that there was collusion in the scheme but it shows that don jr. was collusion curious. so he was apt and anxious to meet with this person who said they might have damaging information and if the new york times is right they were coming at least in one of the e-mails promising that it was coming from the russian government. the second big problem is there were these blanket denials that margaret talked about that have now been undone and so it just adds even more skepticism to the official comments coming from the white house. now, in terms of the president, this is obviously closer to him. he has never been at the center of the collusion story. and this is obviously moves it closer to him, that not only was his son involved but the highest levels of his campaign went to this meeting. >> donal
7:10 am
says this is much ado about nothing. what do you make of that characterization? and how unusual is it for a cas aignto meet with the opposing side to get negative intel? >> well, campaigns do lots of underhanded things with opposition research. that's absolutely true. usually they pawn it off to lower level staffers or there's somebody who nobody sees out in the daylight who takes care of this stuff. this would be three of the arguably the most top people involved in the campaign participating in a meeting where if you believe the accounts was -- was set up just as a meeting from somebody coming from russia with bad information. that's a pretty flimsy pretext for a meeting to get that kind of high level attendance. this doesn't usually happen in campaigns. you go back to 1968 when the nixon campaign worked with both sides of the vietnam war to slow things down because they thought that would help humphrey but that's a long time ago. there have been instances in the 2000
7:11 am
got information about the bush debate preparation. he immediately turned it over to the fbi. so this has happened but not that often. >> and that's kpaexactly my question. there are three sources in the new york times who say this was in an e-mail. i mean, there is proof of this that that e-mail said this is part of a russian government effort to aid the trump campaign. that's what this meeting was about. shouldn't law enforcement have been alerted immediately? >> well, you would -- you would hope so. you know, on the other -- and so that's the point. this is not just any country. this is an adversary or an enemy of the united states offering this information. on the other hand, if there was a collusion that was going on, a connection between the russians and the trump administration or the trump campaign, you'd think they would have had better communications than just this e-mail that sort of came in over
7:12 am
so there's much to investigate here, but the -- the reaction is definitely not the one you would -- you would expect and not the one you would want if you knew people would someday be looking at it. >> is it possible we may see department jr. testify in congress? >> he said he'd cooperate so that would be the expectation of cooperation would be to testify and answer questions from both parties have asked for that. >> that's right. thank you so much. and also on capitol hill senate republican leaders want to vote next week on their bill to replace obamacare. they still have to overcome strong opposition. >> capitol police arrested about 80 protesters yesterday who held noisy demonstrations outside senate offices. they cannot support the health care measure right now. senate leaders need eight of them to change their minds before the bill can pass. >> an active duty u.s. soldier

7:15 am
for a taxiway next to the runway. it was filled with planes. kris van cleave is in washington with details of this scary close call. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. experts including a retired airline captain are calling this is a close call that could have been one of the largest aviation disasters in history. air canada flight 759 with 140 people on board was making its approach to san francisco. the air bus a-320 from toronto was cleared to land on runway 28 right but instead lined up for the sax taxiway known as charli that runs parallel to the runway. there were four other airliners waiting to take off filled with people and fully fuelled.

that the president's son should come to capitol hill. >> this is the first time the public is seeing clear evidence of an attempt by the trump campaign to obtain information and again, in this case from a possible foreign agent. that would interfere with the hillary clinton campaign efforts. this is again, kind of the underlying premise that has been raised throughout this whole investigation. >> reporter: trump jr. says he will cooperate with congress and has hired a lawyer to deal with russia related issues. margaret brennan is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: an attorney for donald trump jr. dismisses this as much ado about nothing, but he did acknowledge that donald trump jr. did receive an e-mail from an acquaintance offering to set up the meeting with people who had potentially damaging information about hillary clinton. the attorney claims don jr. had no knowledge of what specific information, if any, would be discussed and it was

good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you know, this tradition of an august congressional recess dates back to a time before air conditioning when members of congress had to get out of town because it was too painful here in the nation's capital. but now some are worried about the heat bill they get back home if they leave for the entire month of august without fulfilling some major promises. >> we should be locked on the house floor until we get some things done. >> reporter: calls for a big congressional scheduling change are getting louder. >> i'm ready to work through august. >> we cannot take a break in august if we haven't done the people's work. >> if you did a vote out there in the real world they would vote for us to stay here and get their work done. >> reporter: david perdue is one of many republicans pushing to do away with the annual five-week break. in a letter to majority leader mitch mcconnell, perdue and nine colleagues point out there are only 31 working days until the end of the fiscal year. in that time republicans want to

consensus by bringing in democrats. >> reporter: if republicans want to stick around they're going to need democratic support because big changes to the congressional calendar require approval from leadership of both sides and norah, democrats probably aren't eager to give republicans more time to try to enact their agenda. >> going to be an interesting week there, nancy. thank you so much. new jersey governor chris christie's approval rating remains at an all time low after the release of embarrassing photos. just 15% of new jersey adults approve of the job he's doing. he was photographed lounging on a closed public beach during a government shutdown. he filled in yesterday on a new york sports radio show and joked about the beach picture. some callers weren't laughing. >> governor, next time you want to sit on a beach that is closed to the entire world except you, you put your fat [ bleep ] in a car and go to one

europe showed similar results. people who drank one cup of coffee a day have a 12% lower risk of dying. those who have two or three cups have an 18% lower risk. dr. tara narula is here to sort it all out. is this from starbucks? >> who funded this study? >> but the bottom line is, i always heard don't drink too much coffee. >> this says our daily ritual, one of the biggest environmental exposures may not be only safe but protective. this is basically adding on to a mounting body of evidence that suggests this. the first study was a european study. very large. they were followed for 16 years and they found those that drank three cups or more decreased death. the second study took place in america and looked at different racial backgrounds. african americans, japanese americans, whites and
8:17 am
a decrease risk of dying from 12 to 18%. and this was decreased dying from heart disease, cancers, respiratory diseases, strokes. across the board. >> caffeinated or decaf does it matter? >> there's something else going on. we know that coffee has about 1,000 biologically active compounds in it. vitamins like b 3. magnesium and minerals. anti-inflammatory compounds. research previously has shown that coffee is associated with a decreased risk of things like parkinson's disease. liver and uterine cancer. when they looked at the blood they found improved blood sugar. improved liver function and lower inflammatory markers. >> so is there any way without drinking coffee you could t
8:18 am
benefits and get them some other way? >> that's possible, charlie, but i think, you know, we're talking about the bean. we're talking about the seed of the plant and so certainly if you were to prepare it in a different way if you were talking about the compounds within, you could. >> this is such a healthy thing to do. you should encourage everybody to do it whether you like coffee or not. >> i think it's important to point out limitations of the study. so yes, we're seeing this mounting body of evidence but these are observational. they don't prove cause and effect. they were self-reported so people had to fill out a questionnaire saying how much they drank. that can lead to errors. they also looked at either one point in time of these questionnaires or maybe just a couple points in time. obviously your habits can change. and you have to rule out other confounding factors. for instance did people who were healthier tend to drink more coffee and that's why we're seeing decreased mortality. did they have other dietary or socio economic factors that played in so it's definitely important. we need more
8:19 am
point out we're not saying go out and drink coffee but certainly moderate coffee consumption about three to five cups a day, 400 milligrams of caffeine a day can be part of a healthy lifestyle. so don't feel guilty. >> i think it stains your teeth -- >> that's why they have white strips. >> and it can affect your breath, some coffees. >> gum. mint. >> i got an answer for you, gayle. >> i'm going to stick with my white hot chocolate, low fat milk. that stuff is good at starbucks. >> i love my coffee. >> congratulations to all you coffee drinkers, you'll live longer. i like it. >> thank you, tara. >> that will keep you living longer. >> all right. ahead, how digital -- >> friendship is good. >> love and friendship. >> ahead, how dig

8:35 am
>> what's the threat? >> the threat is even though people are consuming more news than ever in history -- >> that's good. >> that is good. but they consume it differently. they consume it online and the problem is that when they consume it online, the money isn't flowing to the folks hiring the reporters. and we need a system that allows the folks hiring the reporters to be able to produce the great content that we need in this country. >> break it down for everybody who's not in our industry what's happening. if there's an article on cbs it gets shared on facebook. but who's getting the advertising revenue? >> well, most of the advertising revenue is going to google and facebook. as a matter of fact, those two together have over 70% of all the digital ad revenue out there. and so -- >> they're getting the content for free. >> effectively. and you know, part of that is a newspaper thing. we had a history of giving away content for free and now we've got to say hey, this is

8:38 am
airline and you have to pay for leg room and now you have to pay for an extra bag. if we've been getting it for free, what is the incentive to now pay? >> it is an uphill battle. i get that, but also i know what the free news business is. if you want a free news business it's pope endorses trump. it's fake news world. people want to know about the -- about the world, but if you don't have a business sustaining it underneath, you're going to get garbage and it's in everybody's interest that we have a future of the news business. >> you reached out to them? >> we have, and -- >> did mark zuckerberg take your call? >> they reach hundreds of millions of people. >> facebook reaches 2 billion users. >> that's a great thing for getting news out. right? but again, the audience for the news product is bigger than ever and that's a great thing. the other part we need to get to is, you know, we need to pay reporters and things like that to produce the great content and that great content --
