pietro belluschi. >> i see a lot of things full of meaning and full of poetry. >> pietro considers his finest residential accomplishment to be here in portland, a home he designed in the '40s, purchased in the '70s, and cherished ever since. >> he loved the house. >> loved the house. absolutely, he did. >> and over the years, pietro and his son tony often discuss renovating it. >> he and i sat down and actually did some drawings together about how to add a second level onto this house. >> but the father/son project never materializes. son tony is too busy in chicago, expanding his portfolio, while pietro continues to receive high praise for his work, even into his 90s, including a national medal of the arts, bestowed by president george h.w. bush in 1991. >> pietro belluschi.

innovative architectural designs. they evoke the grandeur of this land, particularly the pacific northwest. [ applause ] >> in 1994, pietro passes away at the age of 94. his life's work includes over 1,000 buildings. his widow, second wife marjorie, tony's stepmom, continues to live in the architectural masterpiece in portland. but by the early 2000s, the home has fallen into considerable disrepair. that woven wood ceiling in the bedroom is coming apart. the roof is leaking. it's a mess. marjorie begs tony to come back to portland and fix it up. but portland, and being compared to his father, is
9:02 pm
exactly what tony has avoided for his entire adult life. >> i was always of the theory that you can never go home. >> tony agrees to fix the roof, but focuses mostly on his career, adding to his impressive list of designs, in chicago and around the globe -- france, turkey, saudi arabia. after marjorie dies in 2009, tony and his brother peter inherit the house that meant so much to their father. but what to do with the old, neglected home? the brothers bring in some real estate agents for a market evaluation. >> were going through the house with several realtors, and one of them kind of said to me in a low tone, "you know, this house is a possible tear-down." >> did your heart stop? >> absolutely, my heart stopped. i looked at her in total disbelief, and in that moment i said, "over my dead body."
9:03 pm
>> you weren't gonna let it happen. >> absolutely not. >> so tony buys out his brother and dedicates himself to restoring their father's cherished home to its former glory. >> was it that special? >> it was that special. and that's when i said, i must commit to it. >> but once word gets out, tony feels some unexpected heat. you might think local preservation types would rejoice that pietro belluschi's very own son was coming to the rescue of his work. not exactly. peggy moretti is executive director of restore oregon. >> there are a million things that can get mucked up when you tackle a historic renovation. you always worry about, good intentions don't always translate very well. >> tony's intention is to come up with a design that honors his late father but satisfies his own creative vision. it calls for some spiritual collaboration. >> i channeled him the entire
9:04 pm
time i was working on the house. what do i do, and what would he do? >> but guess what? after consulting with his father's spirit, tony recognizes who's boss. >> and we had a meeting of the minds and did whatever i felt was the right -- for once, i was able to make the decisions without his input. >> by the spring of 2010, the restoration is in full swing. it's an exhausting process for both tony and his wife, marti. >> we lived and commuted from chicago. every two weeks i flew out here for two weeks and went back to chicago. >> in september 2012, after two long years and $935,000, the work is finally complete. >> i've put so much of my blood, sweat and tears into this house, probably more than he did to build the original house for the original client. >> coming up... >> oh, my gosh, look at all this light. >> i take the grand tour.
9:05 pm
and tony's career takes an unplanned turn. >> here's another quiz question for you. built in 1902, macy's flagship store in new york was the first building with what architectural feature? the answer in a moment.

9:09 pm
doesn't just get dad's house. he gets a broken-down monument to northwest design built by his legendary father. by 2013, tony's restoration of pietro belluschi's masterpiece is complete. >> every single square inch of this house has been refreshed, restored, or added onto. >> tony expands the home by more than 700 square feet, adding a bedroom, garage, art gallery, and he replaces his father's shed with a new guesthouse. but god is in the details. and today, i get to see the final product. >> oh, my goodness, this is a kitchen i could make magic in. >> well, this is a completely reborn kitchen. everything had to go. the original one from the '40s ended right here, was only this little alcove here. >> and of course tony rehabs
9:10 pm
that woven wood ceiling in the master bedroom. >> no way! that's real wood? >> this is real wood. >> [ gasps ] >> it's made up of cedar, spruce, and hemlock, and it was woven together very carefully in place. >> i want this. >> tony's updates dovetail with the timeless elements conceived by his father 65 years before. >> the fireplace is magnificent. >> this was part of the original design. it's the same stone my father used from this stone wall out here, and so he tied the outdoors to the indoors. >> it's so beautifully done. well, it looks to me like you own portland. this is some view. >> this is why we call this the magic place. you never get tired of looking at this. >> i wouldn't. what would your dad say if he saw this place today? >> he would like it a lot better than the way it was when i inherited it. >> really?
9:11 pm
>> i don't know anybody who doesn't love this house. >> count peggy moretti among local preservationists no longer worried about what tony might do to his dad's house. >> pietro left a mark here in the northwest. he's a very special legacy, and tony added his own mark on the place in a perfect kind of way. >> her group even honors tony with an award for restoration excellence. >> how proud are you to own this house? >> well, it's a dream come true in many respects. >> it's a gift to see it. >> well, thank you. >> so that's the end of my tour and of tony's "strange inheritance" story, right? not so fast. for tony, as it turns out, this was just the beginning. >> i didn't plan to do this. i wanted to have my own quiet life. >> next, the surprising twist tony never saw coming. >> what's your "strange inheritance" story? we'd love to tell it.

to ten million people in just two years. it's transforming our world. [ door creaks ] [ wind howls ] >> now back to "strange inheritance." >> for years, tony belluschi commutes from his chicago home to portland to renovate his strange inheritance, this beloved architectural gem designed by his father, pietro. he ends up in a good place, the one he never expected. >> i've sold my practice in chicago, i've moved here. >> you think you'll ever decide, "i made a mistake"? >> absolutely 110% no. this, all of a sudden, is not my father's house. it's our house. and to me, it's something that has become part of us. we don't want to sell it, and it's not going to be on the market as long as i'm breathing air. >> he won't likely be hurting for work anytime soon.
9:16 pm
turns out the owners of other homes his dad designed are now calling him. >> it's very, very important to sort of protect the legacy and the stewardship of these homes. >> beginning with aric wood, who lives in the first house tony's father ever designed, back in the late 1930s. this one, too, falls into disrepair. >> we restored it to the new, just like it was in 1938. >> tony really was able to channel his father's thinking about the house. i wake up every morning just amazed at the solace of the place. >> the phone doesn't stop ringing. >> people come to me thinking maybe i can help them with their project, help them restore a house. i didn't plan to do this coming back to portland. i wanted to have my own quiet life. but it doesn't exist here. >> what's the next step? where do you go from here? >> now our big project is the pietro belluschi resource center.
9:17 pm
we hope it'll become a place where people will come to portland to study pacific northwest mid-century modern. >> that is a real, professional way of further enhancing the legacy of my father. >> such a paradox, this "strange inheritance" tale. an architect, the son of one of the profession's dazzling stars, keeps far away from the long shadows his father cast. for only once he makes his own name can he turn to what may be his life's most rewarding work -- preserving the legacy of the legend now departed. >> before your dad died, did he tell you he was proud of you? >> he did. in fact, i have a letter he wrote. he expressed himself in writing a way he couldn't in words. "dear tony, i don't think i've ever told you how proud i am of you,
9:18 pm
how pleased of your obvious qualities of spiritual awareness, of your sensitive attitude towards people. your loving father." >> how'd it make you feel? >> very happy. very fulfilling. um, sad because he couldn't say that in person. >> a lot of dads can't. >> i understand. but i also loved him and understood him. the older i got, the more i realized how valuable a mentor he was to my life. >> pietro once declined to build in a wooded area near m.i.t. called the pines. asked why, he replied, "we could never design a building as beautiful as the trees." that inspired the tribute tony designed for his dad after he died -- this bench along a trail
9:19 pm
not far from the house that became tony's strange inheritance. check out the plaque. "we never could design a building as beautiful as the trees." i'm jamie colby. thanks for watching "strange inheritance." and remember, you can't take it with you. >> he was the man who had everything... >> this has about 750 to 800 horsepower. >> ...but never enough of these. >> he told me he was bringing in about one tank a week. >> i imagine a small country could win a war with these. >> yeah, i hear that a lot. >> my dad started a tradition of getting an old, beat-up car, and then he would crush it with a tank in the field out here. >> his death puts his heirs on a mission. >> is this what your dad would want? >> you push up on that. >> start. [ engine turns over ] >> just like that, she comes to life. >> and talk about sticker-shock
9:20 pm
and awe. >> was the auction a nail-biter? >> you bet it was. >> $300,000. $350,000. sold. ♪ >> i'm jamie colby, and, today, i'm driving up a long, steep hill in portola valley, california, near san francisco. i'm here to visit the heirs of a man who made the record books with his incredibly strange collection. and if i'm lucky, i may even get to ditch this s.u.v. and take the controls of a serious off-road ride. >> my name is allison littlefield. these are my half brothers, david and scott. >> when our father died, i 2009, we inherited 240 armored military vehicles. >> lots and lots of tanks. >> hi, allison. i'm jamie. >> hi. nice to meet you. >> thanks for having me up. this is a magnificent ranch.
9:21 pm
the ranch is very nice, but i'm here to see something else. >> come this way. >> these are real? >> these are real. >> this is one of several buildings on the littlefield ranch where they garage their strange inheritance. some guys collect stamps and coins. their dad, jacques littlefield, collected tanks. in fact, what you see here is part of the world's largest private collection of armored vehicles. allison tells me some of these tanks are incredibly rare, including this world war ii german panzer iv... this 8-ton half track... and this sherman tank. what a collection. >> it is a real preservation of history, and that's what i'm so excited about. >> so, how did all of this get started? well, jacques littlefield is born in 1949, the son of edmund wattis littlefield, heir to a prosperous mining and
9:22 pm
land-development company called utah construction. at an early age, jacques develops a strong interest in all things mechanical. >> this is him as a young boy, playing with his model train set. >> he looks almost like he could be in an ad for trains. >> i know. it's such a sweet picture. [ gunfire ] >> in the late '60s, the vietnam war is raging, but jacques is never drafted, due to hearing loss from a childhood bout with encephalitis. he attends stanford university. after majoring in economics, he goes to b-school, then takes a job at hewlett-packard. that's where the 23-year old littlefield meets his new boss, bill boller, who becomes a lifelong friend. he shares with bill his latest passion -- tanks. where did it begin? >> he checked a book out of the library called "american tanks and tank destroyers." and that book attracted his attention so much that he said it all started there. >> jacques' first military
9:23 pm
purchase -- in 1976, for $3,500 -- is this m3a1 world war ii wheeled scout car, which saw combat both in north africa and the invasion of sicily. i find it ironic that he collected tanks even when people were anti-war. would he have shown up at a protest? >> jacques was conservative in his politics, so no. he would definitely not have shown up at a protest and probably would have pretty much ignored it. >> 1976 is also the year jacques' father sells the family business empire to general electric, in what was then the biggest merger in u.s. history. his dad's now a billionaire, and son jacques leaves h-p to manage his personal fortune. he takes up residence here, at pony tracks ranch, gets married, and starts a family. scott, what do you remember most about your dad? >> building stuff. we used to go to the woodshop and make things there.
9:24 pm
i'd have birthday parties, and we'd get to go around on a sherman tank. >> one of my favorite events was our 4th of july party. [ all cheering ] my dad started a tradition of getting an old, beat-up car, and then he would crush it with a tank in the field out here. >> [ laughs ] >> a truly successful army is one that will not be called upon to fight, for no one will dare to provoke it. >> the timing of jacques' interest in tanks is perfect. with the u.s. military expanding under president reagan, the pentagon is getting rid of a lot of outdated equipment. jacques snatches up a few tanks and then a few more, including this m5a1 stuart tank, built by cadillac back in 1943, a model used in the invasion of normandy. jacques buys it for $20,000. the end of the cold war and then the first gulf war lead to more tank-buying opportunities.
9:25 pm
jacques pounces. sherman tanks... this m1917 "6-ton tractor"... a russian t-72 used by saddam hussein's forces... even a scud missile launcher. jacques builds these barns to house them all. >> this is him working at the tank-restoration shop here on property. he was very involved in the process. he really enjoyed it. >> so it's a professional operation. >> oh, yeah. i mean, he had a great team of people who would rebuild these things down to the nuts and bolts. >> i remember i was in ukraine and i saw a tv show starring my dad. >> this has about 750 to 800 horsepower. >> it s a strange experience. >> in 1999, at the age of 50, jacques is staggered by a colon-cancer diagnosis and goes into treatment. >> i was in a bit of shock when i first found out.
9:26 pm
>> did he tell you or did he hide it to himself? >> he was very good at hiding it. >> he always had a really positive attitude. >> and a life's-too-short outlook that, as his cancer goes into remission, sends his tank-buying into overdrive. >> he told me he was bringing in about one tank a week. >> do you have any idea how much money he spent? >> [ laughs ] >> a lot. >> yeah. i prefer not to think about it sometimes, but, yeah, definitely, it was his passion. >> coming up, the tank -- and the challenge -- jacques littlefield was most passionate about. plus, it's my turn at the controls. okay, i'm up. how do i get in? >> any way you can get down in there is fair game. >> but, first, our "strange inheritance" quiz question. how did these armored vehicles become known as "tanks"?

afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me. >> the answer is "c." during world war i, the british coined the term as a code name to keep their development a secret. >> i try not to have too many duplicates of what other collections would have lots of.
9:30 pm
>> in the early 2000s, jacques littlefield, the world's foremost armored-vehicle collector, seems to be beating colon cancer. the fight lays him low, physically, but it only revs up his passion for tanks and more tanks. he asks his dear friend bill boller to help restore them. >> he told me he was bringing in about one tank a week, every week for the last several years. >> by 2007, jacques' shopping spree gets him into the guinness book of world records for the largest private collection of armored vehicles, with 229 of them. only a year later, he has 240. but his cancer returns with a vengeance, and in january 2009, he tells bill he's just hoping to finish one thing before he dies -- the ongoing restoration of a super-rare german panzer v panther. jacques considers it his greatest find.
9:31 pm
>> the story, as we understand it, was -- it had to retreat, and on its way through poland, it attempted to cross a frozen river. and the tank broke through the ice and fell to the bottom. it sat under this river for about 50 years. >> it's not in good condition. >> this particular restoration started off looking worse than this turret right here. it was remanufactured here in its entirety. >> just in time for a fast-fading jacques littlefield. >> we had a discussion about it, and although the turret had not been put on it, he smiled and he said, "i'm satisfied". >> look at it now. how long does this take? >> the total restoration took seven years. it's one of only two that are really restored to this degree. >> how much did he pay for it? >> this is a fairly valuable tank. there are multiple millions of dollars in it. >> on january 7, 2009, just days after he tells bill boller he's satisfied, jacques littlefield
9:32 pm
passes away at the age of 59. [ bagpipes playing ] >> there was a procession, and the coffin was carried on the back of a tank. >> the mechanics he'd been working with thought that would be a fitting way to send him off. >> jacques wills the entire tank collection to his children. >> it was really scary to lose him so young. i turned 20 a month before he passed away, and it kind of went from being in college to having to take on a lot of responsibility very quickly. >> so, what do you do when you've inherited a collection of 240 armored vehicles? in keeping with jacques' wishes, there's a trust for the tanks, controlled by allison and her half brothers, but no instructions on what to do with them. >> he never left me with any sort of message regarding the tanks, specifically. >> so the siblings call jacques'
9:33 pm
friend bill boller back to active duty. he'll lead the littlefield heirs through the quagmire ahead. >> the objective was to find a long-term solution. >> in the short term, i'm wondering what it's like to drive one of these things. >> why don't you climb up and get in the driver's seat? >> right on cue. bill says it's an m551 sheridan, one of jacques' favorites. okay, i'm up. how do i get in? >> any way you can get down in there is fair game. >> i can always get new knees, i suppose. >> [ laughs ] >> if you look on the floor, you'll see there's a great, big single brake in the center. >> got it -- brake. >> and there's a foot throttle on the right. >> probably no texting at this time. >> probably not a good idea. >> okay. >> we're not gonna turn on anything else other than, now, the starter, which is the next lever over. you push up on that. >> start. [ engine turns over ] >> just like that, she comes to life. >> oh, my gosh. >> okay. so... >> are you belted in? >> i've got a great, big handle i can hang on to here, and if i get in trouble, i'll just jump.

[ laughs ] can i come back tomorrow? >> well, we've got 80 more that you've got to try. they're all different. >> i should test-drive them before i make a decision. >> [ laughing ] yeah. >> after their father's death, the littlefield heirs retain a skeleton crew of mechanics, just to keep all those tanks in good shape. did you ever say to yourselves,
9:35 pm
"let's just sell it"? >> no. >> i was hoping that we could maybe keep the collection somewhere locally, but after all those options were explored, there wasn't any way we could keep the collection together here. >> then, in 2013, a visitor from the east drops in. rob collings represents a well-to-do family in massachusetts that's devoted to military history. >> let's go for a flight. >> he tours the country with world war ii planes, like this b-17 flying fortress. collings is looking to maybe buy a tank or two, when bill boller takes the conversation to a whole new level. >> bill said, "you know, i don't want to sell you a tank." i thought to myself, "what did i say?" he goes, "i want you to have the whole collection." >> in short order, the two men draw up a plan to create a jacques littlefield tank exhibit in massachusetts. >> we would grant all the assets to them, and they would take the responsibility to provide the

plans for a building, the land for a building. >> but just because you're willing to give away a fleet of tanks doesn't mean you can just hand over the keys and be done with it. is a family that inherits something this vast responsible for also raising the finances to do it? >> i don't know of any museum, even those that are well-funded, that would volunteer and come in and take on this type of a responsibility. >> for this entire scheme to work, the littlefields must accept an arrangement to raise a certain amount of money. did you know what that number was? >> yes. >> and it's a big chunk of change. can they do it? >> sold. >> that's next. >> here's another quiz question for you. this german personnel carrier from jacques littlefield's collection was driven by lee marvin in the world war ii classic film "the dirty dozen." what's this model of half-track called? is it a... you do all this research on a perfect car,

the cream of the crop. >> we had a methodology going into this of what vehicles we wanted to present, and that boiled down to 85 tanks. >> they're jacques littlefield's greatest treasures. they include the personnel carrier used in "the dirty dozen" and the german panzer v panther tank that jacques littlefield finished restoring right before he died. littlefield's kids wish collings didn't have to split up their dad's collection but know some must be sacrificed to fund a permanent home for the rest. and museums cost a lot of money. so, along with bill boller, they gear up for a barn-burner of an auction on their ranch outside san francisco. it's not easy to put a collection together and have the funds to open up a museum. did you know what that number was going into the auction? >> yes -- around $10 million. >> $10 million dollars, and
9:42 pm
failure's not an option. if the numbers fall short, some of their father's most prized vehicles that they dearly want in his namesake exhibit must go. >> we picked out five very, very rare vehicles and we put a high premium on those. >> valued at several hundred thousand dollars each, the five include this sherman tank, the last of its kind... a german 8-ton half-track, just as coveted as the 12-ton used in "the dirty dozen"... an american amphibious assault vehicle... a german panzer iv... and this jumbo sherman, one of just eight in the world. what was that day like? >> i don't even know how to describe it. it was a little bit nerve-racking, like, "oh, are we gonna raise the amount of money that we need?"

this humber armored car -- $97,000. amphibious tank -- $172,500. grant tank -- 276k. stuart tank -- 310k. and that scud missile launcher goes for $345,000. they're north of a million, heading toward 2, but still a long way from 10. will they have to sell any of those rare tanks to reach their objective? >> that was the million-dollar question. >> the answer next. what's your strange inheritance story? we'd love to tell it. send me an e-mail or go to our we'd love to tell it. send me an e-mail or go to our website, strangeinheritance.com.

ever. after he dies, they decide to share their strange inheritance with the world. what's it gonna be like to go into the structure and not see tanks anymore? >> i don't know if it's so much as seeing tanks as it's the smell of the diesel and the grease that i really love. >> $200,000 to start the bidding. $200,000. >> having agreed to donate the collection to the collings foundation, allison and her half brothers must watch some of their dad's tanks be auctioned off in order to raise $10 million to erect a museum in his honor. [ auctioneer calling ] but as the auction nears the end, it appears receipts are still short of that target. at least one of five super-rare tanks the littlefields fervently hoped to see in the museum may have to be sold, but which one? >> sold. >> the bidders get to choose. only one of the five tanks attracts a bid above the confidential reserve. it's the 8-ton german

half-track, a hot ticket from world war ii. and it goes for $1.2 million. the auction passes the $10 million mark. for the littlefields, it's mission accomplished. is this what your dad would want? are you convinced? >> i think this is definitely the best option that we have available to keep the core collection together and have his name attached to it. >> when we are through with the collings museum, this will arguably be the finest collection of its sort anywhere. >> and it'll be the littlefield collection. >> it'll be the littlefield collection. remember how we told you about jacques littlefield's july 4th tradition, when he would haul out an m60 patton tank and stage a fight between the tank and a civilian car? it's so much fun, we thought you might like to see another of jacques confrontations.

wouldn't even be talking about it. hillary clinton supported nafta. she supported china's entry into the world trade organization. and she supported tpp. remember she said it was the gold standard. by the way, i don't think anything can be as bad as nafta, but tpp will be pretty close, and it will and disaster for this area. she just does whatever her donors and special interests want her to do. that's why she is raising all these money. but we are raising a lot of money. we are putting out a statement tomorrow. we raised a lot. and a lot of it unfortunately came from me. what am i going to do. a lot of of it came from small donors. we were averaging $61 a shot. and we raised mills. we'll be reporting a big number tomorrow.

10:07 pm
every time i think about trump i get allergic. >> you decide. what in the world is going on with her? the voters are concerned. in a recent fox news poll 24% say hillary clinton may not be fit enough to be president. 15% feel the same way about donald trump. randy evans is a member of the rules committee for the rnc and former reagan white house director ed rollins. randy, what do you make of it? this is getting it would seem to me at least pretty serious. >> it's not just one thing. it's the barking, the twitching, the stumbling going up the plane. the coughing for four minutes.

if you add all those together people start to wonder. when president gerald ford stumbled going up a plane step everybody thought he was too old. here we have a series of events. when you string them all together it makes you wonder what's going on here because that's just not normal. lou: the liberal national media turned that into a meme. probably the greatest athlete ever in the white house. >> i remember ronald reagan after his first debate had nursing students questioning whether he was in early stages of alzheimer's because he stumbled in the first debate. we are not treated the same way. that's just the rules of the

crusty as he is on these things. the fact of the matter is her health is important, and i do believe that because of what has happened in the last 24 hours, 48 hours. i think it's even more imptant because we are not getting answers. the public right to know is shoveled aside by the mainstream liberal media. i'm sick of it. what do you think? >> i agree with ed on this point. i think there are equally important issues like her position on free trade and trade deals. >> this is not about -- you guys can hold more than one thought in mind at a time surely. >> she fell down, she had a serious head injury. she had a blood clot. i worry more about those things having had a few of them myself more than i worry about a cough.

is finals stretch of this presidential campaign. 17 months ago hillary clinton entered the race in 15 months ago donald trump announced his candidacy. now we are two months away and the election and some americans but even sooner. early voting kicking off september 23 in minnesota and south dakota. donald trump today focused on winning swing state voters holding events in virginia and north carolina while clinton was in florida. trump out with working clinton by a huge margin. trump had 37 rallies. hillary held only one third of them, 13 for her. mrs. clinton appears to be unable to keep up with trump's torrid pace on the campaign trail.
10:19 pm
trump is outworking her in every aspect of this campaign. he did the same thing in the primary. he outworked every one of those candidates. hillary is no longer ignoring the press you may have noticed taking questions for second straight day from some journalists now traveling with her on her big new plane. they asked questions like, how was your labor day weekend? wow, tough, tough stuff and she is taking those questions after two and 75 days of no press conferences at all and she did so it's obvious because she is slipping in the polls and in the latest national polls trump pulls it two-point lead over mrs. clinton in what is a four-way race. after all according to "cnn" poll clinton last month held in a point advantage in its quite a reversal of fortune in the realclearpolitics average it is clinton's lead in the
10:20 pm
polls slipping 23% and i believe trump in the coming weeks is poised to get in the polls as the release of thousands of documents looms large over clinton's candidacy. federal judges have ordered the release of newly recovered benghazi e-mails all of secretary clinton's calendars will be released now and mrs. clinton also ordered to provide written answers about her use of a private server in a lawsuit wrought by judicial watch doing the work of what should be government investigators. in other words, clinton's efforts to run out the clock to avoid the press altogether has simply failed her and by election day voters will know far more about hillary clinton the clinton cartel and her corruption scandals then she and the democrats thought possible just a few months ago. our quotation of the evening from james madison who said quote it is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt when

10:28 pm
actually working very closely together to make sure that the american people are represented. if you have someone actually working with senators and house members to pose questions, it's very troubling because i think the american people want answers. we are starting to see with this e-mail scandal that it goes deeper and deeper. we are holding a hearing later this week into next week as chairman chaffetz works to get to the bottom of it but i can tell you the more we dig in the more troubling it seems. lou: congressman chaffetz, the chairman saying it amounts to obstruction of justice in what is being done. at the same time the committee has really in terms of early achievements in its best to get in has yet to produce a solid result and it looks like it's just another diversion in the midst of a political season where there should be greater focus rather than some diversion
10:29 pm
to the oversight committees investigation. >> well and i think that's the frustrating part not only for me and the chairman but for the american people when you start to realize the timeline and what we started to look at was the timeline and there is a headline about using a private server and there's a subpoena being put out , a letter to basically say that you need to keep the evidence and then all of a sudden a public outcry from hillary clinton saying foul, foul and later those same e-mails disappear after apparently a directive from the clinton campaign. it doesn't smell right. we have got to get to the bottom of it whether it's in a classified setting or in a public setting. it's time to make sure the american people get what they believe are the facts of the story. lou: hillary clinton told the fbi she couldn't recall something more than three dozen times.
10:30 pm
at what point come is it your personal view that the fbi made a mistake in not recommending charges against her quite and is turning to the state department which the clinton cartel basically owns asking them for a judgment that they should proceed with charges against her. >> i certainly don't endorse or support director comey's conclusion of that but i think the other problem that we face there lou is this. when he reached that conclusion it was and a whole lot of assumptions that we are finding out each and every day may not have been truthful or factual so we have got to deal with that and make sure that we continue to put the pressure on, work with the justice department and more importantly get to the bottom of the story and make sure that people are held accountable. they are tired of two standards, one for washington d.c. and one for the rest of the country.
10:31 pm
it's time she's held accountable for action. lou: congressman i got to be honest with you. when we fbi takes more than two months to carry out investigations and its surprise at the end of the process that's not a happy signal for the american people and it raises a lot more questions than it does answers which is obviously the inverse effect that we want when the fbi investigates anyone or anything. congressman great to have you with us. >> it's great to be with you. thanks lou. lou: please world of video and watch this boat chase unfold as if that were part of an action movie. it's going in circles but then, then the police chaffetz -- chase down a driverless motorboat and the captain fell overboard. i'm sorry, should laugh about that. when daring officer leapt into the boat and took control and although while the boat is in motion. it's cartoonish and by the way

10:45 pm
how is it that the nation is not a price of what has happened in chicago, the that this president has not dealt with the issue that the mainstream media just will not cover, that the worst black-on-black violence in the country? lou: it doesn't fit their narrative. they want to make us all about either guns in the hands of private citizens and if we got rid of those we would be okay or somehow this is about cops shooting totally unarmed and innocent black young men which is just not the way the stats point to the truth. it's barack obama's some town for heaven sakes. it's his chief of staff town where he is mayor and none of the facts in this case help support the narrative that the democrats and specifically the democrat to run the media want to somehow lay out to the american people. lou: you know it's interesting that there appears to be some breakthrough here because of
10:46 pm
donald trump's energy and interest in going into black communities in campaigning for their votes. i don't think the democratic party can quite believe what they are watching and listening to as the republican nominee is seeking african-american votes all across the country and it looks like it's beginning to have an impact on early readings of some polls. >> i think people are waking up to the fact that in our cities they will like to have safe neighborhood; faxes to jeep -- decent jobs that pay well. hillary is not talking about that and when she does talk talk about it she says we are going to keep doing the same things we are doing. well that's the definition by anybody standard of insanity to do the same thing over and over expecting different results. there's not going to be a different result unless we have a different president and that is why donald trump is being very effective in going into inner-city neighborhoods.
10:47 pm
people thought he shouldn't do it. of course he should because when he talks london order do you know who's going to benefit from that? people living in these inner-city urban neighborhoods. when he talks about job creation who is going to benefit from back? the vast numbers, the record numbers of young african-american males who don't have jobs so i think it's a brilliant stroke on his part and frankly the democrats they have got nothing to offer, nothing. everything they have offered has helped to create these problems and aggravate them. lou: city after city, major city after major city in this country democratic leadership or at least the democratic control and the results have done short of disastrous and in most of those cities. i want to turn to these polls that we are seeing a solid move here for donald trump coming as all of the strategists in the
10:48 pm
campaign wanted right at the labor day turning point for the remainder of the election. your thoughts? >> well i'm enjoying watching donald trump move ahead of hillary in some of the national polls in part it has it's just a smack-down of some of the smug commentators that i've had to put up with over the last several weeks to talk about how there's no way donald trump can win, no way he can win. it's impossible for them to do it but i cannot wait into election day when he does when in some of them will be sitting there, their mouths on the floor and they will have absolutely nothing to say, nothing because they will have missed it and they totally were privy as to what the american people were saying, feeling in believing and i just have to believe that what we have seen in these past couple of weeks is the reaction of americans listing to what donald trump was actually said and not what the media is saying what he is saying in the total absence of hillary clinton from
10:49 pm
being on the scene and even showing up. lou: she does show up and has coughing fits. by the way donald trump reported three times as many rallies over the past month. it's remarkable. governor it's great heavy with us. talk to you soon. that's it for us tonight. thank you for being with us. ambassador john boltonall fantastic. it's great to be back, and it's great to lean into this man. lou dobbs is next. lou: good evening. i'm lou dobbs. 3 days remain until election day and donald trump has what he wants. -- 63 days remaining until elect day and donald trump has what he want. he's riding in the polls. but hillary's advantage is now down to 3%. he lost more than half her lead in the past six week.
10:50 pm
the latest national poll shows trump evening ahead of clinton 45-43% in a statistical deadlock. among independent, it's a blowout for trump. 49% back trump compared to 29% for clinton. trump likely to address his improving fortunes when he holds a rally this hour in greeneville, north carolina. we'll be going there live in moments when he take the stage. we have a great lineup of guests for you. former presidential candidate mike huckabee, and there is a lot to discuss. hillary clinton provoking more questions about her health after suffering two coughing fits yesterday. clinton tried to brush it all off, not entirely convincingly.
10:51 pm

10:52 pm
carolina with our report. >> donald trump held a rally today in north carolina, a state with a large military population. trump suggests the public is being deceived about american losses. they blow up a city and they say two people were wound. you know the real numbers. the real numbers are astronomical. reporter: trump says the u.s. is becoming a third world nation under barack obama and hillary clinton. once a reliably republican state in presidential elections. he's enlisted the support of 88 retired generals and admirals. after months of getting trashed by trump for donging reporters. he invited reporters on to his
10:53 pm
plane and talked about deporting illegal immigrants. the latest cnn poll shows trump ahead within the margin of error. the dallas morning news editorialized, quote donald trump is not qualified to serve as president and does not deserve your vote. he was slammed for donating to a group tied to florida attorney general pam bondi. >> the trump foundation has been fined for illegal activity when it made a political contribution to the attorney general of florida at the time she was being asked by her constituents to investigate trump university. reporter: trump bashes the clinton foundation daily and
10:54 pm
denies any collusion while singing bondi *'s praises. the first of three presidential debates is in 19 days and the only vice president debate is a week after that. reporter: carl cameron reporting. donald trump is campaigning in the battle ground state of north carolina tonight, and there he is. you are looking at live pictures. according to the real clear politics polling average. clinton leads trump by 1 point in the state of north carolina. trump is at the greeneville convention center. let's listen in. >> let's go to a country and make their product and sell it without any tax or tariff. so we end up with a tremendous loss of taxes and tremendous unemployment. we get nothing. we get nothing. you know what? if they knew there was retribution or consequence, they
10:55 pm
wouldn't even be talking about it. hillary clinton supported nafta. she supported china's entry into the world trade organization. and she supported tpp. remember she said it was the gold standard. by the way, i don't think anything can be as bad as nafta, but tpp will be pretty close, and it will and disaster for this area. she just does whatever her donors and special interests want her to do. that's why she is raising all these money. but we are raising a lot of money. we are putting out a statement tomorrow. we raised a lot. and a lot of it unfortunately came from me. what am i going to do. a lot of of it came from small donors. we were averaging $61 a shot. and we raised mills. we'll be reporting a big number tomorrow.
10:56 pm
in a trump administration, we'll negotiate trade deals on behalf of american workers. not some company owned by the special interests and donors who give her money. for the american workers it will be america first. remember that. and our worker comes first. we'll work to insure that farmers in north carolina have the tools they need to thrive at home and compete on a level playing field in foreign markets. and that means negotiating fair trade deals that do indeed put america first crucially. i'm going to convene my top generals. we have a great one here think itr tonight. we have a great two generals here tonight. one graduated number one in his class from west point. just like general douglas macarthur.
10:57 pm
where is that general? tough guy. come here, general. come here. number one in his class. i'm impressed by that, general. number one in his class at west point. two star general. incredible guy. did you see? it was 88 generals and admirals endorsed donald trump today. these are the fighters. these are the fighters. e th wor dd trump in greensville, north very, and he's talking about. the issue of fair trade is a major issue in this campaign. a year ago it was unthinkable. donald trump is to be credited for putting that and the well-being of the american middle class, the working people
10:58 pm
and their families high on the national agenda in this contest for the presidency. we'll be returning to greeneville and donald trump in just noaments moments. but first how politicized is the federal bureau of investigation. the f.b.i. carried out a political tactic of going into the long labor day holiday and depriving afternoon document dump, the f.b.i. practicing it about clinton's ever worsening email scandal. among the more stunning revelations in those server emails, the emails were deleted using special software and a couple of clinton's devices were destroyed using a hamper. a senior clinton aide manipulated a congressional hearing into the benghazi attack
10:59 pm
by feeding top toiks the acting chairman of the foreign relations committee. catherine herridge has our report. reporter: from the 39 times hillary clinton told the f.b.i. she could not recall. one of the f.b.i.'s most striking finding is clinton's 13 mobile devices are unaccounted for. >> missing devices creates a hole in the investigation. here it would seem like a significant hole in the investigation. not only do you have missing devices, but you have the contents of those device, too. reporter: according to the f.b.i. timeline clinton's lawyers said in february they were unable to locate any of these devices. the report shows clinton relied on multiple device, technologying between her ipad
11:00 pm
and blackberry. >> he i opted for convenience to use my personal email account which was aloud by state department base thought it would be easy tore carry one device for my work and email and were government approved. >> all we can say, she was never provided with a state department blackberry. an fbi computer archiving clinton's emails according to clinton was lost in the mail. a march 3, 2015, a preservation order ways issued for the email. clinton's legal team held a conference with the team managing the server and the records were shredded.
11:01 pm
>> why did it oh zmur it becomes more curious and perhaps more relevant. reporter: jason chaffetz has asked the u.s. attorney to investigate whether the clinton team obstructed justice when they deleted the emails. lou: a lot more to cover tonight. stay with us. donald trump has the labor day lead in the polls just as he wanted. and now there are only 9 weeks until the election. who looks to be the most fit to be president. we'll talk about that and much more. and this paraglider is enjoying the beauty of his spectacular flight. but then all things must ends. we'll show you what happens we'll show you what happens next.

11:06 pm
handled it all. lou: earlier in the day clinton struggled to get through her labor day talk in cleveland. she blamed her incessant cough on donald trump to whom she has developed an aversion and allergy.
11:07 pm
every time i think about trump i get allergic. >> you decide. what in the world is going on with her? the voters are concerned. in a recent fox news poll 24% say hillary clinton may not be fit enough to be president. 15% feel the same way about donald trump. randy evans is a member of the rules committee for the rnc and former reagan white house director ed rollins. randy, what do you make of it? this is getting it would seem to me at least pretty serious. >> it's not just one thing. it's the barking, the twitching, the stumbling going up the plane. the coughing for four minutes.
11:08 pm
if you add all those together people start to wonder. when president gerald ford stumbled going up a plane step everybody thought he was too old. here we have a series of events. when you string them all together it makes you wonder what's going on here because that's just not normal. lou: the liberal national media turned that into a meme. probably the greatest athlete ever in the white house. >> i remember ronald reagan after his first debate had nursing students questioning whether he was in early stages of alzheimer's because he stumbled in the first debate. we are not treated the same way. that's just the rules of the game.
11:09 pm
i don't know what her health condition is. i take her at her word. lou: why would you take her at her word. >> there are more important thing than her health. she has no economic policies. i'm not excluding anything. you are sitting here saying her health doesn't matter, ed. >> i'm saying it should not be the front and center issue. the front and center issue is her policies, if we spends our time arguing whether she cause of or doesn't -- whether she coughs or doesn't cough. >> could you manage tim kaine facing vladimir putin? think of the difference between pence versus putin and kaine pass putin. she doesn't backup donald trump
11:10 pm
has with mike pence. >> i expect mr. trump to be that's what i'm going to bet on. lou: on this show we talked about everything in her career. there is not one single signature achievement on the part of this woman. what part would you think is more important than her health tonight? >> she put forth and economic plan that's worse than what obama has had. lou: nobody cares about her economic plan? >> they should. if you want to spend all your time and energy -- not meaning you. this campaign has to be focused on leadership. he's a leader and he can make decisions and she doesn't. if you want to talk about health to a certain extent you get distracted. >> i'm not distracted in the least. ed and i are good friends. old friends, and i'm just as
11:11 pm
crusty as he is on these things. the fact of the matter is her health is important, and i do believe that because of what has happened in the last 24 hours, 48 hours. i think it's even more important because we are not getting answers. the public right to know is shoveled aside by the mainstream liberal media. i'm sick of it. what do you think? >> i agree with ed on this point. i think there are equally important issues like her position on free trade and trade deals. >> this is not about -- you guys can hold more than one thought in mind at a time surely. >> she fell down, she had a serious head injury. she had a blood clot. i worry more about those things having had a few of them myself more than i worry about a cough.
11:12 pm
lou: you are on record. the fact of the matter is we still don't know. >> and you are not going to know. lou: that's important for the american people to know as well. >> we won't know the content of the speeches given to wall street or the content of the blackberries that were smashed with a hammer. if you say one thing she'll doyles not tell the truth. lou: ed rollins. thank you for being with us. i'm older than you are. lou. thanks so many. vote in our poll tonight. is it irresponsible for the national liberal media to ignore hillary clinton's obvious health issues? cast your vote on twitter @loudobbs.

is finals stretch of this presidential campaign. 17 months ago hillary clinton entered the race in 15 months ago donald trump announced his candidacy. now we are two months away and the election and some americans but even sooner. early voting kicking off september 23 in minnesota and south dakota. donald trump today focused on winning swing state voters holding events in virginia and north carolina while clinton was in florida. trump out with working clinton by a huge margin. trump had 37 rallies. hillary held only one third of them, 13 for her. mrs. clinton appears to be unable to keep up with trump's torrid pace on the campaign trail.
11:19 pm
trump is outworking her in every aspect of this campaign. he did the same thing in the primary. he outworked every one of those candidates. hillary is no longer ignoring the press you may have noticed taking questions for second straight day from some journalists now traveling with her on her big new plane. they asked questions like, how was your labor day weekend? wow, tough, tough stuff and she is taking those questions after two and 75 days of no press conferences at all and she did so it's obvious because she is slipping in the polls and in the latest national polls trump pulls it two-point lead over mrs. clinton in what is a four-way race. after all according to "cnn" poll clinton last month held in a point advantage in its quite a reversal of fortune in the realclearpolitics average it is clinton's lead in the
11:20 pm
polls slipping 23% and i believe trump in the coming weeks is poised to get in the polls as the release of thousands of documents looms large over clinton's candidacy. federal judges have ordered the release of newly recovered benghazi e-mails all of secretary clinton's calendars will be released now and mrs. clinton also ordered to provide written answers about her use of a private server in a lawsuit wrought by judicial watch doing the work of what should be government investigators. in other words, clinton's efforts to run out the clock to avoid the press altogether has simply failed her and by election day voters will know far more about hillary clinton the clinton cartel and her corruption scandals then she and the democrats thought possible just a few months ago. our quotation of the evening from james madison who said quote it is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt when

happening. because we are going to win north carolina. we are going to win in a lot of different places. lou: donald trump talking to his supporters there in greenville on what he has been doing across the country saying this election could be rigged. be vigilant and he's calling for some 7000 poll watchers to volunteer and assist in making sure that there isn't any rigged the election and to give us an insight on north carolina but stern to congressman mark meadows of north carolina. he serves in the house oversight and foreign affairs committees. congressman it's great heavy with us. donald trump seems to be giving us he does everywhere very warm reception. the realclearpolitics average has come out.
11:27 pm
your assessment of how well he is doing. >> the excitement continues to grow win north carolina lou. i can tell you whether it's in greenville are all the way in the west that i represent i can tell you people are getting excited. they are buying bumper stickers and signs to put in their yards. i have not seen excitement like this in a very long time which is surprising given the national polls but i think he's going to do very well and hopefully will end up winning the day they are north carolina. lou: i want to ask you about a couple of developments today. senator menendez, his latest e-mails dumped last friday suggests that he was led into a line of questioning of the clinton campaign. but you make of it? >> well i think it's traveling anytime you have a secretary of state or anyone that's coming before a branch of government that's actually separate and should be separate where we are
11:28 pm
actually working very closely together to make sure that the american people are represented. if you have someone actually working with senators and house members to pose questions, it's very troubling because i think the american people want answers. we are starting to see with this e-mail scandal that it goes deeper and deeper. we are holding a hearing later this week into next week as chairman chaffetz works to get to the bottom of it but i can tell you the more we dig in the more troubling it seems. lou: congressman chaffetz, the chairman saying it amounts to obstruction of justice in what is being done. at the same time the committee has really in terms of early achievements in its best to get in has yet to produce a solid result and it looks like it's just another diversion in the midst of a political season where there should be greater focus rather than some diversion
11:29 pm
to the oversight committees investigation. >> well and i think that's the frustrating part not only for me and the chairman but for the american people when you start to realize the timeline and what we started to look at was the timeline and there is a headline about using a private server and there's a subpoena being put out , a letter to basically say that you need to keep the evidence and then all of a sudden a public outcry from hillary clinton saying foul, foul and later those same e-mails disappear after apparently a directive from the clinton campaign. it doesn't smell right. we have got to get to the bottom of it whether it's in a classified setting or in a public setting. it's time to make sure the american people get what they believe are the facts of the story. lou: hillary clinton told the fbi she couldn't recall something more than three dozen times.
11:30 pm
at what point come is it your personal view that the fbi made a mistake in not recommending charges against her quite and is turning to the state department which the clinton cartel basically owns asking them for a judgment that they should proceed with charges against her. >> i certainly don't endorse or support director comey's conclusion of that but i think the other problem that we face there lou is this. when he reached that conclusion it was and a whole lot of assumptions that we are finding out each and every day may not have been truthful or factual so we have got to deal with that and make sure that we continue to put the pressure on, work with the justice department and more importantly get to the bottom of the story and make sure that people are held accountable. they are tired of two standards, one for washington d.c. and one for the rest of the country.
11:31 pm
it's time she's held accountable for action. lou: congressman i got to be honest with you. when we fbi takes more than two months to carry out investigations and its surprise at the end of the process that's not a happy signal for the american people and it raises a lot more questions than it does answers which is obviously the inverse effect that we want when the fbi investigates anyone or anything. congressman great to have you with us. >> it's great to be with you. thanks lou. lou: please world of video and watch this boat chase unfold as if that were part of an action movie. it's going in circles but then, then the police chaffetz -- chase down a driverless motorboat and the captain fell overboard. i'm sorry, should laugh about that. when daring officer leapt into the boat and took control and although while the boat is in motion. it's cartoonish and by the way

that is dark and dangerous and they are paying to keep the lights on. instead we hear one ridiculous rationalization of failure. it seems weekly in our foreign policy. by this administration. >> reagan turned it around. this is exactly a replay of what we had in 1979 and 1980 when the united states was perceived as weak pay there was no consequence taking american diplomats hostage. there was no consequence to running circles around around the present of the united states. reagan came in and turned it around within days the hostages were released. the defense budget went up and all of a sudden we were treated with respect around the world. we need a new president. lou: i wouldn't put that on trump or any other president stepping in in that timeframe but it's certainly a desperate need that the next president has to have. >> the clock is running out. the clock is running out for the

lou: 13 people were killed over the holiday weekend in chicago, shot and killed closing of the deadly summer for the city in decades. there have been 512 murders in chicago this year alone. that's up from 480 last year for the entire year. the "chicago tribune" reporting that 72% of the homicide victims killed in the first half of this year were african-american men. joining me now former arkansas governor former republican presidential candidate mike huckabee. governor, great heavy with us.
11:45 pm
how is it that the nation is not a price of what has happened in chicago, the that this president has not dealt with the issue that the mainstream media just will not cover, that the worst black-on-black violence in the country? lou: it doesn't fit their narrative. they want to make us all about either guns in the hands of private citizens and if we got rid of those we would be okay or somehow this is about cops shooting totally unarmed and innocent black young men which is just not the way the stats point to the truth. it's barack obama's some town for heaven sakes. it's his chief of staff town where he is mayor and none of the facts in this case help support the narrative that the democrats and specifically the democrat to run the media want to somehow lay out to the american people. lou: you know it's interesting that there appears to be some breakthrough here because of
11:46 pm
donald trump's energy and interest in going into black communities in campaigning for their votes. i don't think the democratic party can quite believe what they are watching and listening to as the republican nominee is seeking african-american votes all across the country and it looks like it's beginning to have an impact on early readings of some polls. >> i think people are waking up to the fact that in our cities they will like to have safe neighborhood; faxes to jeep -- decent jobs that pay well. hillary is not talking about that and when she does talk talk about it she says we are going to keep doing the same things we are doing. well that's the definition by anybody standard of insanity to do the same thing over and over expecting different results. there's not going to be a different result unless we have a different president and that is why donald trump is being very effective in going into inner-city neighborhoods.
11:47 pm
people thought he shouldn't do it. of course he should because when he talks london order do you know who's going to benefit from that? people living in these inner-city urban neighborhoods. when he talks about job creation who is going to benefit from back? the vast numbers, the record numbers of young african-american males who don't have jobs so i think it's a brilliant stroke on his part and frankly the democrats they have got nothing to offer, nothing. everything they have offered has helped to create these problems and aggravate them. lou: city after city, major city after major city in this country democratic leadership or at least the democratic control and the results have done short of disastrous and in most of those cities. i want to turn to these polls that we are seeing a solid move here for donald trump coming as all of the strategists in the
11:48 pm
campaign wanted right at the labor day turning point for the remainder of the election. your thoughts? >> well i'm enjoying watching donald trump move ahead of hillary in some of the national polls in part it has it's just a smack-down of some of the smug commentators that i've had to put up with over the last several weeks to talk about how there's no way donald trump can win, no way he can win. it's impossible for them to do it but i cannot wait into election day when he does when in some of them will be sitting there, their mouths on the floor and they will have absolutely nothing to say, nothing because they will have missed it and they totally were privy as to what the american people were saying, feeling in believing and i just have to believe that what we have seen in these past couple of weeks is the reaction of americans listing to what donald trump was actually said and not what the media is saying what he is saying in the total absence of hillary clinton from

being on the scene and even showing up. lou: she does show up and has coughing fits. by the way donald trump reported three times as many rallies over the past month. it's remarkable. governor it's great heavy with us. talk to you soon. that's it for us tonight. thank you for being with us. ambassador john bolton guests tomorrow. please join us. thank you for being with us. good night from new york. >> a new poll suggests also that his neck-and-neck with hillary clinton so what's behind his fourth-quarter surge plus does vladimir putin haven't october surprise and the claim that rush is trying to radar election in the column kaepernick all the way to washington. take your seats. it's time to get schooled. kennedy: tonight it's the tale of two foundations. when you're really rich you
