rgan. captioning funded by cbs it's it's wednesday, march 28th, 2018. this is the "cbs morning news." breaking news overnight. stormy daniels' legal team files a motion asking for a jury trial and the right to depose president trump and his lawyer michael cohen. more on this latest legal escalation. also breaking overnight, the secret's out. north korean leader kim jong-un did travel to china for a historic meeting with president xi jinping. so what did they talk about. and funding the border wall. now president trump is floating the idea of using military money. good morning from the studio 57 newsroom at cbs news
4:01 am
headquarters here in new york. good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. we begin with breaking news. early this morning stormy daniels, the adult film star who alleges she had a sexual encounter with president trump, files a motion asking for the right to depose the president and his lawyer michael cohen. it also asks for a jury trial. now, only four sitting presidents have been deposed. the last one was bill clinton who was later impeached for lying under oath. we're joined now by cbs news analyst rikki klieman to break it all down for us. thank you so much, rikki. we know stormy daniels' team, they're asking for a jury trial, expedited discovery. what are they trying to do? >> what they're trying to do is show this is a matter in the
4:02 am
public's interest, and in this rather stellar, i have to say -- >> you read it. >> -- it's actually brilliant, and i don't use that word lightly because what it is doing is saying, look, we originally filed for declaratory relief to say this nondisclosure agreement is null and void. originally we thought it was that the president did not sign it. now we find the filing is much broader. and what it is saying is not only did he not sign it and therefore cannot be bound by it and she cannot be bound by it because you need the intent of both parties to sign but he's saying, look, this entire agreement is against public policy. why? because it's there to hide a federal election commission violation and perhaps more important for stormy daniels' attorney, it is there to be hush money to affect the election in
4:03 am
2016. therefore, it violates public policy according to this filing and it needs to be handled in the public, the courthouse, not the arbitration closed room and it needs to be handled fast. >> fast. and that's what they say. expedited discovery, expedited jury trial. how fast could that mean? >> well, it's a lot faster than i would ever anticipate it could happen. what they're asking for is they want these depositions. they're limited in time. remember, that's also smart. you tell a judge, look, i'm not going to be abusive here. two hours for the president, two hours for michael cohen, and ultimately only ten requests for documents. ultimately only ten requests for documents. so, see, i'm not being burdensome. i'm not trying to hurt the office of the president. they're looking for a decision to go forward immediately following the decision on the original motion. that is, judge, decide that we are going to have a null and
4:04 am
void contract, therefore, we don't go to arbitration and then we want a jury trial within 90 days. >> so the white house has denied all these charges. the president has not spoken specifically or tweeted specifically about stormy daniels, but the white house has said, look, none of this happened. >> through a spokesperson at a press briefing. >> right. stormy daniels, her people are saying, look, the reason we're filing this is we have a lot of uncannesed questions. is that a compelling reason? will that move the judge? >> i don't know. there's a litany of questions they've asked the president to answer. of course, the ultimate question goes back -- we have to remember the original claim in this new filing is against michael cohen for defamation. that's a jury trial request. the judge, i say, has to decide whether or not the nondisclosure agreement is valid because if he thinks it's valid, it might go down to arbitration.
4:05 am
but in terms of the jury trial, why is it only michael cohen who needs to be deposed. well, they say whatever michael cohen said about whether or not this matter may be truthful, which is what the cause of defamation is about, where would he have gotten his information? he would have gotten his information, if it's truthful or not, from the president. so then did the president know that there was going to be this hutch agreement as it's been called or the nondisclosure agreement, when did he know it? the old watergate questions, what did you know, when did you know it. then we have did he know where the money came from? did he have anything to do with ordering the hush agreement? ordering the money? so it's backtracking all the way as to how this came about. remember, this is 11 days, this signature, before the 2016 election. >> right. and timing is very, very key here. rikki klieman, thank you very much. >> thank you.
4:06 am
ahead, we'll talk with michael avenatti, stormy's new attorney,er about this new motion to depose the pretty and what if given the chance he would ask mr. trump. also breaking overnight, overseas, the first ever meeting between north korean leader kim jong-un and chinese president xi jinping is over. the secret summit in beijing was kim jong-un's first trip outside north korea since he first took power in 2011. he called the meeting a groundbreaking milestone and it comes amid recent tensions over north korea's nuclear program. hena doba is here in new york. good morning. >> good morning. the north korean leader was in china from sunday to wednesday. he reportedly discussed his desire for better relations with the south and his willingness to hold talks with the u.s. chinese state television released video of a historic moment when north korean leader kim jong-un and his wife met
4:07 am
with chinese president xi jinping and his wife for the first time. a military band greeted kim at the start of a four-day visit that ended today. as did an honor guard. the leaders posed for an official picture, attended a banquet where kim spoke, and held talks. china's official news agency reported that during the discussion kim pledged to denuclearize north korea and it's said he is willing to hold a summit with the united states. a meeting between kim and president trump is planned for may, but this is the first time he has spoken publicly about it. some experts in the region say the potential talks between the u.s. and north korea may have motivated china to act. >> i think beijing probably wanted to make sure it didn't get sidelined in the bilateral conversation between them and wanted to send a message that
4:08 am
they're north korea's most important relationship. >> they said united states remains in close contact with our allies, south korea and japan. we see this development as further evidence that our campaign of maximum pressure is creating the appropriate atmosphere for dialogue with north korea. the statement also says china briefed president trump about the visit. and kim's father king jong-un visited china several times while hoe was in power. his visits were also kept secret until he had left the country. anne-marie. >> hena doba here in new york. thank you so much, hena. president trump has a new funding idea about building the wall along the mexican border. have the military pay for it. the wall was mr. trump's campaign promise. he wanted mexico to foot the bill. they refused. last week's budget provided seed money, so mr. president trump has floated the idea of using the military bucket to pay the $25 billion the border wall would cost. the white house provided no specifics. the california attorney general said he'll conduct an independent investigation into the shooting death of stephon
