young people. before leaving washington, the president ignored questions about his former chief strategist steve bannon who was quoted making damaging remarks about mr. trump in a new book "fire and fury: inside the trump white house." last night on twitter the president called the author michael wolff a total loser and said his former ally bannon begged for his job when he was fired. the president added, now sloppy steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone. in an interview this morning with the bbc wolff stands by the content of his book and believes its revelations can ultimately harm the trump presidency. >> the story i've told seems to present this presidency in such a way that it says he can't do this job. the emperor has no clothes, and suddenly everywhere people are going, oh, my god, it's true, he has no clothes. that's the
8:12 am
perception and the understanding that will finally end this presidency. >> reporter: one cabinet member not invited to camp david, attorney general jeff sessions. mr. trump has openly criticized him and "the new york times" reports mr. trump sent a lawyer to disswaj sessions from recusing himself from the russia investigation last year. the department of justice denies that report. >> errol barnett at the white house, thank you. two republican senators taking aim at the author of a dossier filled with damaging allegations ability president trump's ties to russia. chuck grassley and lindsey graham referred former british spy christopher steel to the department. the senate says they have reason to believe steel lied to the fbi. >> republicans have argued that steel's work which was paid in part for by the democratic
8:13 am
been used by the fbi to open an investigation into the trump campaign. they say the senate's action is attempt to discredit the on going russia investigations. the fbi is once again investigating the clinton foundation charity and whether the foundation accepted donations in exchange for political favors while hillary clinton was secretary of state. president trump and congressional republicans urged the justice department to renew the investigation. here is justice correspondent jeff pegues. >> this program has created more and more opportunities. >> reporter: cbs news has learned in recent weeks fbi agents have been reexamining the clinton foundation's finances. agents want to know if donations were made in exchange for political favors between 2009 and 2013 when hillary clinton was secretary of state. >> my theory about all this is disclose everything and then let people make their judgments. >> reporter: since president clinton left
8:14 am
foundation has grown into a multibillion dollar enterprise with significant donations from foreign governments and businesses. the investigation into its fund-raising started well before the 2016 presidential campaign, but no charges were ever brought. >> it's a shame what's happened with the fbi -- >> reporter: president trump, himself, under investigation for obstruction of justice in the russia probe has repeatedly criticized the fbi for its investigations of the clintons, and in twitter messages he has called on his attorney general jeff sessions to prosecute crooked hillary. in a statement clinton spokesman called the case a sham that was being used to distract from the indictments, guilty pleas and accusations of treason from trump's own people. >> it doesn't look appropriate. here, you know, appearance is everything. >> reporter: bill matay is a former federal prosecutor. >> it's not necessarily unusual to reopen the investigation, it is unusual for the white house to be calling for the reopening
8:15 am
>> this probe is separate from the fbi's investigation into hillary clinton's private e-mail server. she was also cleared in that case, but some republicans are asking for it to be reopened as well. for "cbs this morning saturday," jeff pegues, washington. >> we've got a lot to cover this morning. for an in-depth look, joined by kathleen kingsbury from "the new york times." good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with "fire and fury" since it seems to be what everybody was talking about. the president was tweeting rather late last night for him about this book and particularly about his former chief strategist, steve bannon who is at the heart of this account of the white house. how significant do you think is the fallout from the breakup of this relationship? >> i think the fallout is still to be determined. bannon is clearly the one who is suffering the most right now. we've seen people like the mercers, his financial backers, already start to distance themselves. the future of his
8:16 am
breitbart remains to be seen. i think we'll see more in the next weeks. >> the revelations in this book, if they are accurately reported are scathing as far as the president's fitness for office. michael wolff is on national television saying president trump has lost it. is there a reconciliation that needs to happen in the republican party as far as this is concerned? >> i think that -- yes, absolutely. that said, i think that this book, while it lays out incredible details, specifically details directly from the white house and quotes staffers in ways that we haven't heard before, it really echoes a lot of reporting we've heard over the last year. the president has been erratic since he came into office. a lot of the concerns right now are how do we minimize the damage, particularly on the world stage. >> how big a threat do you think it poses on the world stage? >> we're talking about
8:17 am
do we really want the north koreans to think this is a president who is impatient and unwilling to have dialogue? no, absolutely not. we're seeing south korea make efforts at trying to reach out to the north. so the u.s. really needs to back that effort. >> let's turn the page a little bit to more white house intrigue. "the new york times," your paper, is reporting that president trump refused to accept potential recusal from attorney general jeff sessions as far as the russia investigation. what are the implications here as far as obstruction of justice and collusion which seem to be the main prongs of robert mueller's investigation? >> i think the biggest questions of that reporting this week by michael schmidt, did the president try to obstruct justice? that's really the main question here, a huge legal question. it's one we've seen in the past lead to impeachment hearings. so i think that is one of the things that we r
8:18 am
few weeks, whether or not that reporting is collaborated and whether or not the doj starts digging into it. >> it sounds like there might be mourp more of a case to be made if you're mueller on the obstruction of justice rather than the collusion -- >> exactly. i think right now the clearest reporting we have does show a white house that's really been trying to stop this investigation, trying to do whatever it can to prevent hearings in this matter. >> statement, as we heard jeff pegues report, the justice department is actively investigating the clinton foundation, whether donors got preferential treatment while hillary clinton was secretary of state. this isn't the first time the foundation has been investigated. what's going on here? >> i think given the fact that there doesn't seem to be new evidence on the table, the on conclusion we can come to is this is a political vendetta brought on by the white house. i think the president has made it clear that he wants t
8:19 am
and over again over the past year. but the fbi looked into these allegations in 2016 and said there wasn't enough evidence to actually bring charges. so what's new now? >> speaking of political football back and forth, we know the president and some of his top republican leadership are meeting at camp david to discuss the 2018 legislative agenda. immigration is a football tossed back and forth. the white house seems unrelenting in its desire to have a border wall. what is the future for young dooemers a d.r.e.a.m.ers and daca? >> i think the president has suggested he'd like to find a path forward for the deemers. but the border wall is one of the things he says has to be part of the deal. that's a non-starter for i think that what we really need here is a compromise, and this is a group of talented young people that america

so it would really be wonderful to see the white house find a solution that everyone can live with. >> we will see how that all plays out. kathleen kingsbury with "the new york times." thanks for your time. >> thank you. >> tomorrow morning on "face the nation" john dickerson's gaeft includes republican senator rand paul of kentucky and cia director mike pompeo. it's time to show you some of this morning's headlines. our affiliate in orlando reports on the bombshell revelation by the wife of the pulse nightclub gunman. noor salmon told the fbi she knew her husband was going to the club in june of 2016 and says she now wishes she had alerted police before he shot and killed 49 people and injured 50 others. mateen pledged allegiance to isis and was shot and killed by the police. salman was arrested seven months later, facing charges of aiding a foreign terrorist organization and obstruction of

burgeoning pot movement and pot business in the u.s. >> it is a reversal of the traditional roles that democrats and republicans always play, right? republicans are now arguing for federal oversight to trump statism which is an inversion of where they usually are. are republicans at the state level really going to pursue this? >> republicans at the state level are furious. this is absurd, this is disheartening. we should absolutely not be pushing back against a growing business. in colorado alone, marijuana is a $1 billion business. it brings in $200 billion of tax revenue that goes towards schools and goes toward health care and so this is not a situation where the states who are seeing this money, this activity and health, as well. they don't want to go back to the 2000s and 1990s, they want to, as alex said, give preference to state's rights over u.s. l

"kristen kish cooking" was just published. welcome to "the dish." >> thank you for having me. >> tell us about this spectacular table. >> the front part is the stuffed cabbage and that's a dish that my grandmother would make with me. i would stand on the step stool. a simple, very beautiful ribeye with garlic and shal olotshallo. we have fancy onion rings and coffee cake. >> when people are here, they think korean foods but here we're talking about stuffed cabbage. talk about your early culinary education in michigan. >> i grew up watching great chefs of the world so it would be all these amazing chefs and very little were from asia, to be honest. so i started to pick up and i learned through them. that's how i started kind of developing my sense of what cooking meto

affection for knives. >> i did. a 10-inch chef's knife, luckily it was quite dull, but that's the first thing that you see the chefs do is prep their food. and so -- >> you started cutting everything? >> i did. my mother would always go in the refrigerator and go why are all of our groceries. i cut them up. >> why do you think you were into cooking? what was it about the field that was so interesting to you? >> i think when i watched something and somebody does something really beautifully and competently with their hands, i zone into it immediately. and traps like had i watched like woodworking videos as a kid maybe i'd be a woodworker but i zoned into the cooking shows. i think that's kind of where it started. >> you went to college, though, to study business. >> yeah. >> but you hated it. >> awful. i hated everything about the college experience. i didn't want to go to any more frat parties. i wanted nothing to do with it so i dropped out
9:39 am
and decided to go to culinary school. >> so let's talk a little bit about korea because you were adopted from seoul. at one point you did have kim chi i read. what did that taste like for you and did it resonate at all? >> i went to a grand rapids food festival and it was one of the foods being featured. so my mother brought me to that. she didn't know much about it either. the smell was quite offputting as a kid but when i tasted it, i thought if we put this on top of a burger, that all makes sense to me and i think that was probably one of the first dishes that i built in my head. >> what took you to boston and barbara lynch? >> after culinary school in chicago, being an irresponsible college student, my parents were like, okay, you've got to get your life together. >> buckle down. >> we're going to give you one more try to get this right. so you can go to boston for three months, get a job, we'll help you out, and i ended up staying. eventually it led to barbara and working for barbara

who ultimately recommended you for top chef? >> she did. i didn't understand what she was doing. she literally came back and was like i put your name in, i hope you're okay with that. i'm like no, i'm not. i don't want to do it. i don't want to do tv, i don't want to go on a competition show. but the timing worked out perfectly and i just said yes. >> what did you learn on that show? >> i learned that it was okay to be myself. and i learned that i was capable of doing more than what i ever thought i could do, which then built confidence and that obviously helps going going on to cook. >> the cookbook is three years in the making? >> three years. from proposal to publication, yeah. so if i knew what birthing a child felt like, i would say this was my child. >> for someone who has a book coming out, the book is harder. definitively, you heard it here. >> if you could share this bounty with

presenting, who would it be? >> i thought about that answer and i would have to say probably my birth mother because i think there would be a lot of great stories told through a meal shared with her. >> for sure. kristen kish, thank you. for more on chef kish and the dish, head to our website, cbsthismorning.com. up next, the barr brothers make a return to studio 57 on the heels of their new album the critics call rich and compelling. hear them perform after the break. this is "cbs this morning saturday." match, is this for real? yep. we match all the cash back new cardmembers earn at the end of their first year, automatically. whoo! i got my money! hard to contain yourself, isn't it? uh huh! let it go! whoo! get a dollar-for-dollar match at the end of your first year. only from discover. but prevagen helps your brain with an ingredient originally discovered... in jellyfish. in clinical trials, prevagen has been shown
