6:05 am
republican party driving that agenda for house republicans. they are the ones with the plan said the white house has to decidef ago at the housecleaner something new. a lot of problems at the plan and it doesn'took like they have -- the white house has its own plan. that's another thing slow walked by this administration. dagen: how a president can make it and commit to keeping with business leaders, even if you have a slow-moving progrowth agenda in washington coming out of the white house? how critical is it to keep talking to executives who are probably optimistic? >> he needs to show that he is doing some work, even though they haven't been able to claim legislative big therese. in the background, work out the kinks here and there. i think he should leave the legislative part to congress. let them figure out what they want to do and then the president can go out and sell that agenda. right now, he is trying to focus, at least today on this
6:06 am
business meetings. we also know on also know on the side he has been treating about a variety of other things. i think his team is trying to keep them focused. dagen: yesterday was hillary clinton getting the questions during that debate. >> i'm not sure how that's good. dagen: it is not productivity could easily figure out why he did it. the "financial times" asked him if he reading. he said had she ever apologized. he's just trying to hold a mirror to the rest. jon: we have to change our mindset about how the president first year will work. the first 100 days all this legislation will get past. best of the president has high popularity ratings.this presidee without high popularity ratings. dagen: a lot of republicans have knives out for him. >> 's numbers will go up when he gets legislative it reads. we have to move past the idea he

6:10 am
if you let the committee do their work and figure out the policy part of it and make sure you have that ready to go, that could have been. i am not sure how they make -- how they move on when they couldn't do it in the first place. if you bring in conservatives can you push up under it. it's a very large -- thoughts of divides here. dagen: which is what happened is gop. >> there is reconciliation for 2017. one bill for 2018. have you sequenced these things? >> exactly. the senate will still be a problem. 60 votes to enact new policy. it's a difficult road ahead. lawmakers focus on a couple small types of bills related to infrastructure, related to tax and claims of victory. dagen: cut the corporate tax rate cut into small changes on the business side and the tax cut on the individual. train to you and not get democrats for that.

6:34 am
fox news told bill o'reilly last night. >> susan rice asked for comment and apparently not responded. one say is she would be quick to say so. we can't conclude this is the real deal and bill confirms that this whole thing about the surveillance of people, the picking up of trump associates and the unmasking of their names and identities is a legitimate threat for the investigations going forward. dagen: joining us now deputy opinion editor for the washington times kelly ridell, what is your take on the latest developments because at best this is a scandal. at worst it's a crime. >> yeah, well,ic we should be very clear with what this is and the terminology used here. this was the obama administration in all best case scenario, worst case scenario
6:35 am
spying on trump transition team. a close source -- a close source to susan rice said that what she did wasn't imprper. you have susan rice who just a couple of weeks ago said she had absolutely no idea what devin nunes was talking about to admitting what she was talking about to there was nothing improper. bloomberg view confirmed fox news' report, new york times has had some reporting that corroborates this report. there's been a deafening silence from cnn, abc. two stories going on. the investigation of trump investigation and associates about possible collusion with
6:36 am
russia but we have another huge bombshell of a story on the obama administration possibly spying on the trump transition team. dagen: right, two investations essentially is how we can put it. two critically important investigation. caitlin, i want you to get in here. we should explain to everybody that when we talk about masking, the identities of american death sentence who are caught up in surveillance when they are in conversation with officials and they can be unmasked but generally it's done by intelligence or law enforcement officials involved in an investigation, not somebody in susan rice's place. i want to point out, she clearly did not tell the truth to pbs in the story and we know she lied about benghazi and the root of that. >> there are a couple of
6:37 am
question marks remaining, though. devin nunes has talked about incidental collusion -- sorry, incidental collection which is legal. we also have to keep in mind that the u.s. government was conducting an investigation into the russian meddling and so this could have been a part of that. we don't know what the intention was so far, certainly the questions remain, but i think it's also a jump to say that this confirm that is the administration was spying. this doesn't confirm that. this is incidental collection. jon: i'm going to one that i picked up on. you can ask for unmasking if it yields -- if there's foreign intelligence value. you have to wonder why is susan rice asking to unmask the names of these trump administration officials, was that for political purposes or was there foreign intelligence value in doing that and if it's for foreign intelligence value, why
6:38 am
are they doing it as they are going on their way out the door. it seems they were trying themselves for political value and that doesn't look good. lee: why would it be somebody in her position that's doing this? that's my real question. we are criticizing jared kushner for having meetings with mexican officials and this person in the same role is asking to unmask these folks. what -- what -- dagen: it would have to be justified as the pursuit of national security interest. that's the only reason it would be proper. if it was politically motivated, basically the abuse of intelligence collection and unmasking for would be improper in the best case scenario. but i want to point out, kelly, in the wall street journal in editorial page doing their own independent reporting, the unmasked document that is they include political information
6:39 am
about the trump transition team's meetings and we are also told that none of the documents had anything to do with russia or the fbi investigation into ties between russia and the trump campaign. >> yeah, that equates to spying and, you know, the wall street journal is confirming that. i have also heard from sources that what this dsier is really is political gossip of trump officials basically that the intel team was looking to disseminate among other intel agencies before the trump team came in and this is really serious stuff. i mean, this is, you know, third-world government police state tactic ifs this is actually true. what i would implore the trump administration to do would be to declassify these documents, get them out in the public and let everyone else decide. there's a lot of looming questions, still, but on the face of things, this really does not look good.
6:40 am
dagen: somebody i would guess is going to wind up testifying under oath and somebody is going to wind up talking to the fbi and if you lie to the fbi, even if you're not under oath, it's a crime. kelly, thank you so much. jon: somebody is going to be pleading the fifth. dagen: jon p jon said it. kelly ridell joining us from washington. google's fight to fight new measures after losing business over offensive videos. the cure for sleep. the world's strongest coffee now available in the united states. why the brand has the fda worried opportunities aren't always obvious. sometimes they just drop in. cme group can help you navigate risks and capture opportunities.

7:04 am
federal immigration authorities. this move bars state agencies from using resources to help immigration enforcement. joining us now former massachusetts senator, fox news contributor senator scott brown, good to see you. senator, the sanctuary bill comes nearly a quarter as the entire u.s. population of undocumented immigrants live in that state according to the public policy institute of california. i guess the question from everybody is how can the state do this. >> well, they can do it because obviously very liberal state senator who is are obviously challenging the federal government. when gorsuch gets appointed to the supreme court you can rest assured that california is going to file a lawsuit and it'll immediate i will go to supreme court and the supreme court will rule in favor of the federal government because the supremacy clause specially in something like this applies. can you imagine dagen living in
7:05 am
california, i mean, that's really a great motto, hey, listen, all you illegals come on over, we will take care of you whether you're a criminal, rapist, we will take care of you. imagine what the ordinary hard-working citizen who believes in laand ordewho lives in california right now. i feel badly for them. lee: don't you tnk it's one more piece of evidence suggesting that people can't tell the difference between legal and illegal immigration. why would they possibly say sanctuary -- we are going to foster illegal immigrants. it's illegal to be here. how can you make a law to make it legal? >> i hear your frustration. i was with some friends last night and talked about this very issue. how do you actually support something like this. how do you say, come on, you've broken our laws, hurt or killed, it's okay, we will protect you and we won't turn you over?
7:06 am
imagine how we will make the ordinary citizen who wants to stay safe field. it's obviously going to the supreme court. jon: senator, where does the republican party stand on legal immigration? a lot of economists say we need more of it to keep the labor force growing and the economy growing. we have news out today in the wall street journal and other publication that is the white house is squeezing some of the rules on h1b1 visas s. this party for more legal immigration, less or no change? >> well, first of all, i think they believe in legal immigration 4.3 million give or take people that are in line right now. they should be processed first. you need verification, you need to secure the border. there's a whole host of things you need to do before you take a group that are here illegally and give them rights and whatever bill that marco and others tried to do last time, during the whole process they
7:07 am
were going to continue to get benefit that is they weren't entitled to and that's where basically things fell off. jon: should there be more -- increasing the number of legals? >> of course, the irish with ted kennedy and you high amount of illegal irish immigrants as well. you should review that and it's not inappropriate to say are you a skilled person, we want you come on versus saying you come, you come and be a burden on societ i don't think that's inappropriate. dagen: the trump administration did reopen, began accepting application for highly-skilled workers and basically the broad crack-down that the president had talked about in the campaign trail didn't happen but they are going to be, i guess, more pressure on the outsourcing companies that typically win a
7:08 am
lot of these visas because that's the source of anger and ire along some of his supporters. i want to move to judge gorsuch, the fight to confirm him to the supreme court continues and the judiciary committee did advance nomination on straight-party line vote clearing the way for him to be considered by the full senate but a procedural vote is expected thursday to end a democratic filibuster of the nominee. if republicans can't secure the 60 votes that they need, they'll be forced to use basically change senate precedent in order to confirm gorsuch with just a straight up or down majority vote. white house press secretary sean spicer is confident that a decision will come friday, watch this. >> we have done, i think, a very good job that we have the republican support to pass it. it's internal question to determine how they want to do it. make no mistake, leader mcconnell when he says on
7:09 am
friday, chief gorsuch will be nominated as supreme court justice. dagen: this is a must-needed win ? >> i mean, you watched the hearings like i did, it was unbelievable the calm and demeanor and incredible amount of knowledge he had about our country's laws. it was fascinate to go watch. so it's unfortunate they are going to change the rules, you need to act as americans first and senators are getting so much pressure from outside groups. i was there and i have seen pressure that both leaders put on members, you'll lose this committee and that committee. sometimes you have to fight and do the right thing. i'm sad but, listen, i'm thankful also that we are going to finally move forward. >> do you think democrats are going down a slippery slope by forcing hand on nuclear option?
7:10 am
do you see senators changing rules on legislation? >> well, you would like to think that they would try to go back, once we have gone past -- down this road it's not going to change. don't forget harry reid went down that road and as a result you see a lot of the the secretary and leverage that the minority party has is actually gone. so i think this is going to be the new norm and we are going to get not only this nominee but potentially one or two more and it could help the country and shape the country for decades to come. dagen: that's really what those republican senators like lindsey graham, we heard, that they are concerned that the nominees will be so extreme in the future because that's what the -- their base will demand from them. scott, i wanted to get your reaction from this. there's about 200 movie theaters worldwide that are screening the film 1984 in protest of
7:11 am
president trump. the majority of the screens will take place in the u.s. but their venues in canada, sweden and united kingdom, they're also expect today anticipate, sales of novel surged since kellyanne conway's use of the phrase alternative facts. do people need to just get over themselves? >> dagen, i remember george orwell's classic novel and you're referring to the obama administration with the potential and alleged surveillance in the denial by susan rice, is that what we are talkinabout? this big bro thing or talking about the mainstream media not reporting the facts necessarily, editorializing a lot of the stories about our president? obviously you're talking about this is a reflection and resisting the democratic party's movement; is that right, because i think it's quite a stretch and they can continue to protest and protest and protest but meanwhile we are going to try to create jobs. this president is going to try
7:12 am
to keep our country safe and secure and try to reestablish ties throughout this country and i think it's time to move on but i don't think it's going to happen soon. >> it's fascinating that the left has tried to paint republican and donald trump as fear amongers and yet this is what the left is doing. we are comparing the administration to hitler and who is really the fear monger right now. i -- >> you look at the fact of the healthcare bill that. was the democratic process. there was no dictatorship, there was negotiating, wheeling and dealing trying to make good sausage laws and he failed. the narrative falls on deaf ears. for the average voter, the person who is listening to this, joe on the street, they don't believe it at all and i think -- i think he's going to be in good shape moving forward. dagen: thank you, scott, it was good to see you, senator scott brown. be well.

7:24 am
in military help, is egypt going to step up and help us fight the islamic state given the military aide that we give to egypt every year which is roughly $1.3 billion? >> i think it's very important to highlight here that the two nations have a lot of common interests and i think that the two governments have se objective where both nation and government, to defeat terrorism and that's something that we all agree. we are aiming at achieving security and stability and not only in egypt but across the world. that's the key challenge that we are facing and we are there to fight it together. dagen: dr. nasr, there's been some reporting on potential reductions in aid to egypt with certainly the state department looking at budget cuts.
7:25 am
did those potential cuts come up at all? >> i think that the way we look at it is actually a package of partnership and support, economic support. we look at it that we are here to promote investment, we are very keen on having the u.s. companies invest in egypt. we have moved forward with major legislative and legal reforms as well as institutional so that's how we see it. in terms of economic support and economic assistance, what we are negotiating and discussing is how can this assistant package with the legal lateral reform support more private sector participation. that's the ultimate objective and that's the sustainability that we are really trying to achieve for our country. dagen: dr. nasr, what do you make of the criticism that human right abuses in egypt took a back seat during official visit. we had five senator who is were plan to go introduce a
7:26 am
resolution to ease -- urging egypt to ease and release of political prisoners as well? >> it's very important here to highlight and look at issues in perfective. i-- perspective. i think it's important that we now have a parliament that's checking checks and balances and as a member of the government, we are very much commit today human right issues and i look, for example, on women's empowerment and not only that we have four mentors in charge of large portfolio, it's unprecedent that had we have 15% of the parliamentary presented by women that do seek and push forward human right issues. we are committed for that on all fronts. that's how i really see the
7:27 am
situation. there's sometimes misperceptions about that issue and i think that's one thing that we are also consulting and discussing with the civil society, the private sector, with the think tanks and we want to make sure our message is large, clear and loud and that we are committed to support human right issues. dagen: dr. nasr, thank you so much for being here. the future of aol and yahoo taking shape. why it's taking social media things are headed. because as we live longer... and markets continue to rise and fall... predictable is one thing you need in retirement to help protect what you've earned and ensure it lasts. introducing brighthouse financial.

7:35 am
>> today's world, basically that is in conductivity to the whole world in terms of consumer landscape and business landscape interest, number one is talent. and our business, we try to get behind the world's best brand builders. if you run one of our big red camille at the start organization. we can't connect to by saying you're underneath this brand. oath is on top of you. we got to be connected by values. if you're running one of our brands, lunch and to serve the audience and have a commitment to move the family had you. we are the soil that great brands grow out of. oath is that values-based environment where you can be hyper creative, hyper talented and brand building. you can come to s&p in our environment that will promote you. some of the brings up-and-coming light riot, it's been nominated the last two years for oscars all the way through "huffington post" which is now an almost 20

7:37 am
trade to the ink stained red you are. how are americans getting their news in 10 to 20 years and how are you positioning yahoo! and aol to deliver that? >> i started newspaper in boston when i started my career in a thing that trust and this is why friends are important. when youhink about t sea of noise and on the other aspects people get connected, the brand of what you contrast, right now with the stuff happening in fake news conveys the consumer reaction to it. jon: we see people gravitate away from trust organization and distressed and organizations to trust. trust is breaking down. >> here's the difference. trust will get out and is being rebuilt by brands that are embracing the new distribution model. "huffi distributed on face the. "huffington post" is a digital brand in a trusted random why
7:38 am
would people care on facebook about having a digital trusted brand. they do admit data shows it. to be honest with you, the areas challenging for traditional news serving traditional news expects consumers to behave the same way they were behaving before when in reality if you are one of our brands are one of the brands you guys sound, you have to build your brain on social media and you have to be out there. the brands they get in front of consumer trends -- by the way, the news brands globally have the most unbelievable opportunity in the last 20 years to build significant brands that are going to go to every country, it ever felt in the world. if you fight the trend, my guess is he would not be an organization people look to that they trust. i'm a long-term believer in a trusted brand so i'm probably wrong on this category overall. i see statistics and data. jon: should've called it trusts.
7:39 am
>> that is one of the oath we are making. >> any talk about user engagement? i'm so fascinated by how engaged people are and what they consume and in their brand within the trump administration. is that a reaction to that are kind of a new pattern? >> one is the data we've seen after the election is consumers have stayed engaged which normally the presidential cycle with the election is over we see a drop-off. engagement levels have stayed or gotten deeper. you may see this talking to consumers across the globe. the other interesting thing since everyone is empowered with fonts, tumbler is one of the assets we get in the yahoo! deal. tumbler has tens of millions of posts a day. when i grip you got the news one way basically didn't react to it. he thought about it, might discuss it. today the news is a two-way news cycle it to a content cycle. the engagement levels we see
7:40 am
right now seem to be holding in building a overall and i think it's a two-way engagement cycle. another peer brand you get to visit it one way. trades will want to play not something that there is month to month. fox news to most recent recent month was 55 the publisher with the most engagements. the biggest news publisher far and away above highest average engagements. jon: this is my grandfather used to call tooting your own horn. dagen: the "huffington post" and fox news. >> this is a great point because fox has done a very good job of building audience. if you look across different properties than what you do and cable also. the reality is if you are human and get up and get up in the morning, you have a choice. you can see whatever else is saying about a trusted brand. we talk about the engagement levels on the most trusted rays have been going up, not down.
7:41 am
even the subscribers for "wall street journal," "new york times," look at digital subscribers versus analog. engagement levels are going out. not only traditional, but advertising online is growing to 15%, 20% a year. dagen: marissa mayer's, did she stay ceo at yahoo!? >> we are both spending the last 12 getting organized. we are 90 days away from the final executive structure overall. we don't have anything to announce big marissa said publicly and privately she will stay through the next phase to make sure yahoo! is in a good place overall. we are actively discussing announcements will make the end of q2 about with structure is going to be in the people. we don't have anything to announce that burris is committed to staying through the next phase. trade to attend, good to see you. tim armstrong with aol. harrison's close call will not cost in. by harrison ford is let off the

8:07 am
happening is really what should have happened from the beginning there is a real he concerted effort to get a bill that reflects the consensus of our conference and before the bill had been done, said take it or leave that it left a lot of members of the conference not just conservatives feeling like the bill wasn't doing what we needed to it do i think there is definitely a great effort under way to get there, i am actually the optimistic because i think that folks both in the republican conference and white house understand that the former bill didn't do enough to drive down health insurance premiums the main rein people dislike obamacare if we address that in a way meaningful, and people be able to see it, then that o potentially can be a home run for us in the congress. dagen: what are the sticking points, like what do you need to see just as an individual member of the freedom caucus in order to get onboard with whatever comes o of the house? >> well i think senator appall hit the nail on the head about
8:08 am
individual s hungries market obamacare wrecked that premiums going up healthy people fleeing market kind of in a slow motion death spiral the former bill didn't have support really didn't address in a in meaningful way some ways may have made it worse, so i think if we are addressing that issue and moving in the direction of an actual market, so that we can see premiums go down, to me, that is the sweet spot. now there's members in the conference opposed to the bill problems on medicaid or others we have to accommodate that but i think the individual insurance market making sure that people can find an affordable policy and have multiple carriers offering one if we get there we've answered the call to repeal and replace obamacare. >> quick put some odds that all you republicans will get onboard with one plan and pass something, and send it to the senate and say next month? >> i think the odds are better-than-expected than even. i think it is the next month is probably the good time line
8:09 am
the senate told us, even if we passed the bill on our previous art if i cal deadline in march weren't taking it up till may nay rather than ray to ram it through before recess cancel recess make sure a consensus you product i think we have a very good chance to advance a true repeal and replace bill from the house. dagen: turning to a developing scandal in washington we have sources telling fox news that former national security adviser to president obama susan rice is the very conrn unmasked names of trump tricks officials caught in surveillance, in the statement to cnn a course close to susan rice said idea that ambassador rice o improperlit's is false there is nothing unusual making requests serving as security national

8:11 am
that we have seen if it is then that is clearly an improper use of that authority, and an abuse of power. >> congressman are you going to call her to testify in front of the committee? >> i think we should have her before the intelligence committee. absolutely. i think both in house and senate we should do that, she needs to get on the record, and tell the american people what she did and i think we also need to get to the bottom of who else had access to this information ben roads big antibody loyalist deputy national security adviser you see susan rice ben, that is objectionable loyalists who tos folks are i think more incentive in some career bureau cats to do things could damage trump administration you have to prove that we have to get facts i think there are o trouble circumstantial evidence that we have seen. >> turn for a second to taxes at is your line in the sand what has to happen, on tax

8:34 am
would they pass muster? >> would tests pass muster. >> you know there will be i am jumping ahead, but do they sound extreme? >> i mean it does sun on extreme but i think you also have to realize this is an administration that is taking security very seriously. something that president trump signaled his entircampaign, how serious he was about secuty. and i think what this really indicates is that that social media using things like phones, can give an indication of what of who somebody is involved with what connections are, might be able to prevent terrorist attacks might be able to prevent things dangerous to our country i think a signal things are taken very seriously in the future looking into relationships. >> how would they apply new rules they apply to everybody? everybody has to hand over their passwords? or do they just select specific groups raises all kinds of questions. >> i think we know never going to work to a everybody hand over passwords i think to be determined, i think this is something that still has to be
8:35 am
flushed out, but the bottom line is you know, we know that people use their devices, to connect with other people that they use them to communicate, that they are that it gives a huge indication of who someone is involved with, what connections are i think again just an indication of at the level of focus there is on security in our country, from this administration. >> we have ways to swale without getting passwords this does, i am all for national security but this does sun on extreme. >> you hit nail on the head people will feel under surveillance. >> you can be sure if is we impose extreme vetting measures passwords information from people entering the country all other countries are going to do it to us that could grind the international travel to a halt particularly for of businesses. again something that clearly they are going to have to flush out for all the reasons that you are describing, and, yes, people do feel they are under surveillance we are in a surveillance world these days everywhere you go there is swaine about new york city,

8:38 am
is a big difference between that and president trump sending him to representative united states he there is with chairman this is a whole government approach i think it actually indicates that -- that chairman jointly chiefs of staff understands this administration how important jared kushner is to president donald trump. i think this is sort of he wants to bring him in the loop he knows that he is going to be advising the president he knows he has president's ear i think that is very important general dunford want kushner to have better understanding because he is is somebody sits down with president spends a lots of time with the president. >> up this that chinese understand that -- >> kushner -- >> to set up meeting between the president trump, and sisi this weekend people are figuring out avenues into oval office, an way, shape or form goes straight through ivanka kushner. >> portfolio has grown immensely i haven't seen this
