federal government more of a role in assisting it the administrator's of those networks as they deter intrusions. >> while the feds would not address reporting illinois and arizona were targeted there seems little doubt that other states may also be affected. >> we should begin with the perspective that they have suffered such a compromise. >> the fbi alertom aft confirmation of foreign hackers likely russian back-stabber militias successfully stole records from the democratic national committee that dccc that raises money for democratic house races as well as a possible breach of the nonprofit foundation. a former bush homeland security administration officials said the issue goes beyond november. >> if we induct having a razor thin election and there's any question of even a small number that could create a crisis ofir confidence in the entire electoral process. >> the issue should rise above policy -- partisanship and make

"fox news" chief political correspondent karl cameron has a report. >> with the election 10 weeks from tomorrow donald trump plans a major immigration speech d wednesday in phoenix to clarify weeks of mix to baking contrary messages on the most dividing issue. >> it by when we will build a wall and we will have an amazing border. trump is up the trail shooting ads in new york for northern california fund-raisers in the bay area. wanting his biggest ad buy yet $10 million across nine battleground states where he
needs to win. >> and hillary clinton's america the middle class gets crunched. a new ad by anti-trump republicans urge is time to drop out. >> why would i continue? trump tweeted quote crooked hillary's brainpower is highly overrated probably while her decision stated by bernie she has bad judgment. in addition to his immigration speech wednesday in arizonaa which is then posted twice trump is began to prepare for the upcoming debates with clinton. regular strategy sessions with consultants and his inner circle. trumps debate reversals did not include a sparring playing the role of hillary clinton for now. "fox news" chairman ailes is in the budget to debate team. trumps deportation plans are open and when it comes to otherwise law-abiding undocumented immigrants. >> is going to after -- after the most dangerous criminals first and allege
criminal second by the time we get there we will see what her population is of non-criminalda illegal immigrants and i think that's the point at which he has to decide. staff is importing biggest trump of clinton's past debate performances against sanders and then senator obama eight years ago. as part of his ongoing minority outreach efforts trump saturday will adjust the only african-american owned and operated national christian television network. the impact network and the great faith ministries in detroit michigan saturday that he tweeted today quote inner-city crime is reaching record levels to govern americans will vote for trump because they know i will stop the slaughter going oa and anti-trump troop group calling his republicans for clinton is on the web with ag warning that if trump wins the election it will wreck your pup can party individual freedom economic growth and global stability. they said still important for republicans to vote for house and senate members to protect its congressional majority. tom: thank you karl cameron. meantime this weekend was bad.
shootings in chicago capping off the worse month of violence in 20 years. the nation's largest city now has recorded more murders than new york and los angeles combined. "fox news" correspondent mike tobin is live in chicago with our report. >> even in the city seemingly skyrocketing -- by rocketingto o murders nykea aldridge stands out the shoe is struck in the head and arm by gunfire. incident -- the end that was on the two brothers are charged with first degree murder. police say aldridge was an unintended target. dharun sorrells went to prison for possession and use of a firearm by felon. derren sorrells also would felon and documented member of -- one of them was wearing an ankleri monitor and the other had a break from his ankle monitor to look for job. these offenders are prime example of the challenge we face
in chicago with repeat gun offenders that don't care who they shoot don't care whose life we take and clearly, clearly don't fear the consequences of their actions. tom: the case made headlines because the cousin of chicago bulls star dwayne wade. he commented only over twitter citing enough is enough and the city of chicago is hurting. we need for help. the murder became politicized and donald trump taking to twitter. >> democratic policies, the policies of hillary clinton have created this high crime and crushing poverty, absolutely crushing poverty. so many communities underg povet democratic control we have bad schools, no jobs, high crime and no hope. it can't get any worse. >> as far as what mr. khan says i don't have a lot of comment on that. if you have a magic bullet to
stop the violence anywhere notches in chicago but america please share with us. murders are up 50% in chicago from last year and the victim is not often the intended target of this past week and a people were killed by gunfire in chicago 350 wounded. around 47 people who were shot or killed this weekend in chicago were known to police.li they have a list of some 1800 or i should say 1400 people that police believe are responsible for 85% of the gunfire however spokesman complains bitterly that with lax gun laws they are unable to keep individuals behind bars after they arrest them.ey tom: that's the question. the numbers keep getting worse. these guys are career criminals. what were they doing out of jail? >> it's an interesting point because this police superintendent like the previous superintendent gary mccarthy is complaining bitterly about truth and sanctity laws.
these two individuals have it done her whole sentence would have been imprisoned in the shooting we are talking aboute would never have existed so they use this as one marked sample of these guys to keep getting out on the street. they don't fear law enforcement what they really fear or other gang members with guns. tom: mike tobin in chicago,ers t thank you mike. we are coming right back with much more. stay with us. donald trump promising swift action on illegal immigration that he becomes president. >> on day one i'm going to begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this country. trump will give a major policy speech on the issue this week and we will take it up and a lot more with ed rollins, and michael goodwin joining me here next. this daredevil is revving up for an amazing record-breaking launch. we will show you the unbelievable video up next. you don't want to miss the balm of it. a lot more straight ahead.

and i'm just a guy who wantsants to sell him that truck.ck. so i used truecar. it told me what other people in the area paid for the truck i want. and because we're a truecar certified dealership, i already know the truck he wants. so we're on the same page before he even gets here. -it's fair. -and it's fast. look good? looks great. this is how car buying was always meant to be. this is truecar. ♪ tom: hillary clinton's growing scandal starting to take a toll on her in the polls. clinton's lead cut in half according to the latest monmouth university poll but now ahead of donald trump by seven pointsmonh
among likely voters, 46-39 to the democratic nominee is leading by 13 points earlier this month. joining me now former reagan white house political director and great american strategist ed rollins and pulitzer prize-winning columnist for the "new york post" "fox news" come turbi or michael goodwin. mr. rollins, so is it wise to keep hillary hidden for 268 days in no press conferences of any kind? >> it's become an issue in and of itself the fact that she is not meeting with the press.co i've never found front runner strategies always work. her par she is not putting this race away and they're been lots of mistakes made by first-time candidate mr. trump.. trum it's a very close race and it's going to be a three or four point race. tom: michael uber linear is about the fact that hillary clinton is better at this game
than donald trump. >> look, think to trump has a lot of winning issues and loyal enthusiastic supporters that there is another element to this. it's not about the campaign. it's about strategy and it's about adds in coming out and speaking are running and hiding. trump is all in all the time. clinton does not hold pressold s conferences and takes her moments where she feels she has the advantage and i used last week is an example of how i think who i think this huma abedin issue of the revelation that she worked for anti-american journal, anti-women's rights journal forr 12 years. the "associated press" story on how the donors got special access to clinton when she was secretary of state and additional 15,000 e-mails. all of those things should have been a a great week for donald trump. in the end we ended up talking
about immigration which is not something he is prepared to talk about. tom: is that strategy just buy more ads and hope that your candidate wins still work? more . >> this an unusual year. the old rules don't matter as much as they used to. she has a strong organization. she built on the obama campaign. she is dominating in the airwaves. but you don't learn anything new about hillary. nothing positive is coming out of that campaign. that's hurting her a little bit to my candidate's favor. here is my position on immigration, and say nothing more than that position. and basically he has the black outreach this weekend.
he will dominate the free media this weekend and that's important. tom: the economy is always ranked the number one thing people are worried about. the jobs and economy. then as ed is saying he will give a speech on immigration. is it too confusing back and forth? >> i think it is. karl rove wrote an interesting piece how you have to be consistent with what you are putting out there. you have to talk about the economy and reinforce this and be one idea at a time. you can spend a week based on 'ads. you give a speech on that. you tweet on that, you particular to a point. you hammer home a point so it's not so forgettable. trump often steps on his own stories and minimizes his advantage. where the clinton people maximize their advantage and minimize their disadvantage.
tom: macy's knows when they run a sale on shoes. they do shoes everywhere. >> they are selling one thing. tom: that message is all they are going to talk about. >> he need to be selling the economy. it's a pretty good ad. he will define himself as the leader of this race. tom: he says he's looking for a bigger venue because the crowds are so big. do the crowds translate into people showing up that otherwise you have got to work hard to get out the vote? >> i remind people, the day before walter mondale lost 49 states he had 149,000 people in new york in a crowd. tom: that's an upset. >> the problem with trump is he has an enthusiastic crowd and talks to the crowd. instead of the crowd being the
vehicle to talk beyond the crowd. tom: i'm wondering if some of these venues he comes to. he's a show. circus is in town. people will come out to see the celebrity. >> i don't even know. do they even make any contact with people in these crowds? do they sign them up? >> i believe they are now. i understand they are signing them up now and they are sending them to texas. >> so there is a data base somewhere. >> it's never like obama. but they are catching up and they have a couple months to get it all. tom: roll the video. one daredevil pushing it to the limit. watch as this offroad racer shatters the world record for the longest truck jump when he launches his truck 279 feet over

have access to those databases but i would add a further thing. if we were this you mean when we leave him in the leave them in their region. build places for them, housing, schools, hospitals. leave them someplace where they have the same language and if their lands are reclaimed and given back to them they can move back. tom: can you imagine being picked up from united states of america and dropped in the syrian desert and say there you go. >> have fun coming up in a job. tom: you have no language in a ntact in a way to make a living. tell me about this canadian story. there are a bunch of canadians isis members may be. >> makers what is happen. the canadian government has warned people that there were 180 canadians have left canada, gone to the movie stand trained with isis and as many as half of
them are back in canada so watch out. well that's pretty reassuring, isn't it to know that you have in your midst people who will be willing and probably trained for a terrorist attack. tom: how good is canada doing, keeping track? >> i think what's happened is isis has opened a second in europe or there's a terrorist attack in europe and have now started moving into the next fertile territory which is north america. we know there are isis cells and isis is being watched in all 50 states. again the fbi director said that in the canadian government says we have to worry about it too. it may not be an invasion of thousands and thousands of troops. you don't need anymore in an era of cyber warfare. tom: there was a terrorist that tried to get through port angeles washington from canada in a little tiny customs
location and a customs officer there, she thought something was up. he was on his way to bomb lax. canada has, it's a long border and i caught one that they have to catch every one of them. >> here's the other thing. i think that happened in 2000 on 2001. what has happened since then? political correctness has affected us all whether it's in canada or the united states or whether it's in europe so how likely that someone that sees something is going to say something for fear they will be criticized for being a bigot or a racist or someone who doesn't sympathize with terrorist? tom: i told the audience in friday you were doing a story about the iranian navy boats that were arresting this u.s. military navy boats and i thought of you because during this reagan administration administration, ronald reagan did not play around and talk about politically correct don't shoot at those guys. be nice to them and ronald reagan would assault a bunch of
them and say don't ever mess with us again. >> they said they weren't doing it so we just blew up the ships and reflagged other ships that had kuwaiti flags on them. if you want to mess with us you are taking on the united states navy. now what are we doing? we are apologizing and making excuses. >> what a difference a few decades makes. >> and the leader, that helps. tom: we have a leader. >> i'm looking around for the next one. tom: i am too. yankee so much. good to see you. meantime we are coming right back with much more so stay with us. donald trump delivering messages of a new america where the people by the people. tom says hillary clinton wants a country that only works for her. >> she is pledging to abolish a law making powers of congress and assumed the powers of imperial leaders. she doesn't even look
but democrats are really beginning to worry. listen to former obama can manage her david plouffe. >> it's going to be difficult because you have to prepare for many different trumps. actually the job of preparing for trump is a difficulty. you have to summon you can play many different roles. they seek we have a psychopath running for president. tom: joining me now from campaign national spokeswoman katrina pierson. katrina the name-calling continues, doesn't it, psychopath. >> absolutely. the gap in the polls are closing and so this is another desperate lyrical attack and i would presume it will continue to get worse as the poll numbers continue to close in. tom: desperation begins to show. tell me about the preparation for the debates. are you doing something now or are you working with people?
give us the inside scoop. what are you doing? >> mr. trump is preparing for the debates and he's excited to debate hillary clinton. he's going to continue to be the trump he has eyes been, toughen him protectable and he's going to focus on contrast. it will be important for voters to see the media filter and how his policies differ from hillary clinton's. he wants to give voters a choice of his vision with that future and hope in making america great again and hillary clinton versus the status quo in obama's third term. he will be a clear choice. tom: next saturday and i know we are jumping ahead. go out to saturday for some of his critics has said yes he's talking about latin america in front of white communiti. he's going to detroit. who is he going to be talking about and what will he be staying?
>> this is one of the things that has been left out of the discussion. mr. trump met with the black chamber of commerce during the primary mr. trump attempted to go chicago back in march during the primary. yet met with several that -- black panthers group in a black church endorsed him a few months ago. mr. trump is making inroads into the black amenity which is why his polls are probably gone from one% to 8% of the newer polls and he will be talking directly to the individuals in detroit and he wants to talk about the issues of immigration jobs and economy because those are the top three things at a federal level that mr. chung trunk and impact of those communities. tom: we were talking with ed rollins and mike newman earlier about the message and the fact that he's going to be speaking about immigration wednesday but you just laid out a 10 million-dollar ad buy about the economy and it seems odd that they were babies to different messages going at the same time.
>> in every stage the issues impact the communities differently and it's really important to talk about the economy because that affects all people in the country and it's going to be important in mr. trump distinguishes the difference between his policies of lowering taxes and bringing up his no's versus hillary clinton raising taxes and supporting job-killing trade deals. that's very important moving forward considering the economy under barack obama and hillary clinton and voters will have to decide if they want more of the same order go with donald trump someone they know who will create jobs. tom: is there a shock in our campaign as everybody says labor day is kind of a reset so a week from today are we going to have something new and bigger coming out of the trump campaign? >> i imagine you will see some new things coming out of the trump campaign.
after labor day people are going to tune in and what they are going to see is a republican candidate who out there and want to court all voters not just a certain section of voters. he wants to do it wholeheartedly simply because mr. trump when he says i love everybody he means that from his heart. he has a light to show what he has contributed to his own community and he wants to take that to bigger scale and make america great again. tom: katrina pearson thanks for being with us. just a reminder it's been 268 days hillary in hiding. since she last held a news conference. those numbers are getting kind of big, aren't big, aren't they? you can't ignore it after a while. meantime roll the video because cats are not the only ones with nine lives. andhes this bolivian rally cars hits a bump and goes flying over the head of the oblivious pub.
the lucky dog is shaken but looking around like what was that all about? up next on chunk -- donald trump making his case to african-american voters. >> i'm offering to make a better future for the citizens of detroit, baltimore, chicago all across this great land, inner-city and outer city, all over, everybody. when we come together we will have one great country, greater than ever before. tom: we take up the law and order candidate and the new group in chicago with former d.c. homicide detective rob wheeler.

tom: d'ante performed at this music awards last night in the singer she couldn't resist getting political. the performance showed several backup dancers dressed as angels being shot on stage a reference to the recent police shootings. former new york mayor rudy giuliani not a fan. >> i save more black lives than any of those people use on stage by reducing crime but if you're going to do that you also should symbolize why police officers are in the favorites and what
are you going to do about that? tom: joining me former washington homicide detective and "fox news" attribute or rob wheeler and i missed the mtv awards last night. i don't know the watch them but i'd like to tune in once in a while because there's usually something wacky that happens. this is getting to the point where the mothers of four african-americans shot by police were on stage. i checked all the stories and i didn't hear anything about any of the police officers widows being on stage. >> you won't hear anything about the police officers widows on stage because look at who is performing, tom. jan said has made it clear ever since the super bowl last year and you and i talked about this when she gave in my opinion the middle finger to police officers across the country. she has a lot of money if she wants to express her feelings and her values and her lack of support that's fine but here's
my question for beyonce. what else is she doing this communities to help these people get back on their feet? beyonce has millions of dollars and i will submit to you tom she hasn't given 1 dollar one red cent to try to start a new program to hire people in these communities but i will tell you what she is done. she's taken millions of dollars out of those amenities. she will get on tv and her hatred towards police officers and then turn around and asked police officers to keep her safe from the bad guy so go figure. tom: rappers in the audience was a younger audience so what kind of impact does this messaging have? >> is a horrible message and that's why i think it's important that folks such as myself and others give the opposite view of that message because that message is being sent to young people and especially young african-american people. it's not the correct message.
we can lift ourselves up and pull ourselves up and it's not going to take béyonce to do that. somebody has a problem and they need to dial 911 you are not going to get her to come running and you're not going to get colin kaepernick to come running. what you are going to get us some low-paid leaves office are dedicated to this community and dedicated to this flag. tom: speaking of colin kaepernick san francisco 49ers quarterback refusing to stand for the national anthem and in doing so gave a diatribe in the locker room after the game. i got a tip today that his girlfriend is one of the big activists running black lives matter's so it sounds like they're sitting at home when he is getting talking news. >> surprise, surprise. i'm not really surprised by this. let me say this in all seriousness. every time i come down to the fox studios less than
three miles from her i'm sitting right now in arlington national cemetery and when i walk past a cemetery and drive past a cemetery and i see the tombstones of thousands of people that have ended their lives you know what i don't see in most tombstones? i don't see race and don't see ethnicity but i see this flag and those are the same people that this guy's colin kaepernick refused to stand for and that's his constitutional right but while he is not standing i'm going to stand and i submit to you tom but every viewer right now watching will stand for this flag it's the last thing we do. tom: it's very much of an arrogant move i think on his part but i think most people agree he does have the right in this country to protest. at the same time it's interesting how you talked about he has got a lot of money in beyoncè has a lot of money. what are they doing in the community to try to make a difference? >> zero. they are doing nothing.
colin kaepernick as far as i know hasn't started training program. beyoncè hasn't started training program. she just goes out there and takes people's money and then she goes and spends it and talks about police officer so until these individual start making a meaningful difference in some of these communities and i'm specifically talking about african-american communities across the country. if colin kaepernick wants to sit down for something sit down for other murders that occurred in chicago this past weekend, nine by the way in 50 people were shot. if you want to sit down for something meaningful but they are not doing that that is their right, if you want to protest that way and if beyoncè wants to continue to hate police officers that's their right but we are going to stand for this flag and stand for what is right. tom: real quick about chicago. the numbers are getting worse if anything. anybody doing anything to reverse that trend? >> i've got to say this
semi-been having my finger on the pulse with what's going on chicago. there are local community groups tom they're really trying to figure difference. we don't hear a lot about those folks but i'll tell you what the role problem is. the real problem is the leadership in the city of chicago and it starts with the mayor. i'm not the only one saying this so i don't want viewers to think you are just saying that because of obama are rahm emanuel. that's not the case at all. the mayor hasn't provided any leadership and if you look at the press conference and i implore the viewers to do this go back and look at the press conference that the police chief have this past saturday. that police chief is ready to throw in the towel. he said he is not getting the support that he needs. tom: he looked very frustrated, no question about it. rod wheeler always good to talk to you. >> good to talk to you tom. tom: stocks closing higher in light trading gaining 108 points

tom: the clinton foundation scandal growing
larger tonight with newly-released e-mails showing huma abedin and that band discussing efforts to get donors seats at an official lunch with chinese president who gentiles back in 2010. the list includes executives from ubs and western union, rockefeller foundation all those organizations that have donated millions to the clinton foundation. these newly e-mails, as an obama poll shows 56% of voters say the clinton foundation donors receive special treatment from hillary state department that the interim head of the dnc donna brazile is -- those concerns. >> this notion that somehow someone who is a donor says i
want access and i want to come into room and meet people, we had to criminalize behavior that is normal and i don't see what the smoke is. tom: joining me now is former u.s. attorney for the seven district by an executive director of the foundation for accountability matthew whitaker and "fox news" legal analyst leaf. donna brazile blows it off with a document about it's a networking thing. we all know people can you get me into such and such? there's a difference so when you control millions and millions of dollars in government contracts that my company just so happens to get or you pay me off whole bunch of money for a speech. >> she also said the words smoking in there and legally what you are looking for is that smoking gun to take it away from that's how we do it and that's
business as usual. prosecutors, that's what you're trying to find because you have to go in for that intense factors sort of getting into the mind and what are they intending to do. is it an official act just for being nice and playing along. you take it out and make it that official act in the newer looking at not only a civil but a crime at that point. tom: i'm not a lawyer but i know that. speaking to another lawyer, how does the process go and what do you think the chances are of getting a special prosecutor to dig into where all of this is? >> the call for a special prosecutor is ever-increasing because what you have is the president who hasn't forced hillary clinton as you would expect. the attorney general works directly for the president and had that meeting on the tarmac with bill clinton and it sounds
like there is a tacit agreement that she will continue on in the clinton administration say really look at the independencee which is very important to the ongoing success of our country in jeopardy and a special prosecutor as we saw when scooter libby and the valerie plame situation was prosecuted by colleague of mine out of chicago. he was a special prosecutor and i think jim comey appointed into that position and that is what one would expect. we want somebody that can look at these facts and circumstances especially on the public corruption front and make a prosecutorial decision. tom: you know there's a lot of people that go the justice department is not going to do anything as long as president obama is in office, political influence on that so that they won't do anything is there another way to get a special prosecutor? >> the special prosecutor would have at least a taken one step further and at least part to the grand jury which i think so many
people were upset about last time he comey came out and said no reasonable prosecutor would have would have taken this. no reasonable prosecutor would have done anything with this. wait a second. as much respect that we all have for the fbi in the chief investigator on this case, he is the investigator, not the prosecutor. the investigator investigates and the prosecutors are supposed to prosecute and bring it to the grand jury who is supposed to decide whether or not to -- that is why everybody including myself as a prosecutor, as a prosecutor, former prosecutor so frustrated. tom: we have a few seconds here. what are the chances of getting a special prosecutor? >> right now it's zero. it's too bad but the department of justice is not going to seek any kind of independence in this investigation. tom: vote is sarah-2.
