6:27 am
which by the way i start to get a little nervous with what's going on. all bull markets in an euphoria and bear markets and in capitulation. >> i don't think we are there yet. amazon is another company that has huge cash and can figure out how to assimilate things. they are starting to think about should we make our own delivery company? that's the way these big companies squeeze every little bit they can. maria: before you go to the fix, what story volatility? dagen: there is no volatility essentially. there is a giant amount of complacency in the market but there is essentially no fear. yesterday it lowest level 1993. that makes they never said nobody sees anything bad on the horizon for lack of a better phrase is >> is something that should be on people's radars. it is in a euphoric rage.
6:28 am
nobody sees any risk anywhere. the euphoria and capitulation, there's oval group of assumptions people make. it's gone down so much i can't sell now in holy cow comic acting out. we think it makes sense to have a plan in place in advance a trained strategy to move in strategy to move in and out of equity based on broad market to provide some downside. >> the last time it was slow was 1993. that's a great read for stock market. maybe it's not such a bad thing. dagen: we had solid interest rate is a tailwind first.searches.could have been. >> it is remarkable volatility is so low that time in april of this money back. maria: the lead story in the journal pointing out there's n anxiety. everybody is bullish. we will see about that. sean, good to see you. thank you so much. shanahan is president. fighting the war on terror.

6:34 am
the taliban. joining me right now is fox news military analyst general jack keane. general, great to see you. jack: good to see you, maria. maria: we know that the president has not made a decision on this and we are waiting on more information. twhuild be a good call, do you -- do you support sending 3,000 additional troops to afghanistan? jack: yeah, i absolutely do. i sense the president probabl is reluctant to do this because he doesn't want to get involved in a protracted war, the truth is he said once before that president obama left him a mess and this is a mess, disgration -- disgrace that we haven't finished this war and then when portreus came forward and asked president obama for enough troops to win this war, he never gave them enough. he cut them back 25% and pulled them back after 15 months.
6:35 am
urs policy has driven us to this point. it's not a stalemate. they are on the move. what are we going to do? are we going to stop the blooding or walk away? this is a tough call the president is going to make. i'm in favor of stopping the blooding and ending this thing once and for. we may actually need more troops than that and likely to make this decision this week before he goes to his nato summit next week. maria: there's also the speculation that he may ask nato to send the troops, our allies between 3 and 5,000 troops, not just america. >> nato has only gone to war one time in this entire existence and that was because of 9/11 nato went to war along side of us, they have 4 or 5,000 troops
6:36 am
right now. it would be appropriate for the president, if we are going antonio creas troop levels to ask them to participate. if we increase our numbers, i'm convinced they will increase numbers as well. maria: north korea, the threat is getting worse, satellite imagery uncovering man-made islands and testing site off of the coast of the country. they suspect the islands could potentially be used to launch missiles. what come of advantage comes with artificial islands and what do you make of this new imagery? jack: they are probably going to be for that purpose. it's not like china making islands in the south china sea influencing the flippence and vietnam and having military capability considerable miles off the shore.
6:37 am
this possible is an extension of this capability. whether they do it on the mainland in terms of launching missiles or whether they do it on islands is not all that relevant. the issue is conducting ballistic missile testing is what we are trying to stop. maria: are you comfortable with the tact, making sure that north korea knows that the u.s. will act, i mean, are we on the right path here or is this the beginning of something explosive between the u.s. and north korea. jack: potentially explosive. i think the president has made the right call here. he has economic sanctions, chinese are doing it. we are involved in it ourselves an he's put the military option back on the table that clearly has got north korea' attention, it's got china's attention. our allies know that we have our back, that's not the case with the previous administration, so
6:38 am
i think he's made just about a good a call as he can possibly make dealing with a very difficult situation here. maria: according to new report from homeland security, home-grown extremism steadily on the rise, last year alone 39 cases in 20 states, 39 cases of home-grown terrorists. what can be done to curve extremism in the u.s., home-grown situations. jack: this is the toughest thing our law enforcement and counterintelligence folks are dealing with, because it's so hard to detect. the fact tt we have 39 recorded cases i think is a credit to the investigation skills that we have in this country and i'm sure they are all over the internet and trying to watch them. the secret sauce here is when these people become radicalized their behavior, their attitude, their speech, their dress start to change and people when they notice that, have got to do something about it, maybe a colleague, coworker or family member, you cannot let that
6:39 am
person get to the point where they self-radicalize and become violent and we have internet seeded in these cases and stopped them before they become violent. in some cases, they wanting to back to syria, in other cases they were moving towards radicalization leading to violence but stopped by investigative authorities. the fact that it was on the rise is surprising. maria: how do you find out? you're relying on people that live near the individual to identify things have changed, you know, they look different, they are acting differently, there's really nothing else to do other than rely on people to come forward about it, right, or is there a plan no place to actually target home-grown terrorists? >> it's so hard to target them because they are not directly connected to the organization where they are in communication with it. what they are doing is they are on the internet, they are on the radical sites and that's our sauce. we watch that. i'm confident that some of this
6:40 am
detection has been picked up because of this but others is because of behavior and attitude and they get detected by people around them. as long as people are aware that radicalization is going on and when they see it, call the police and let them determine whether this is real or not. maria: no doubt john kelly is on this. we will see you soon, general jack keane joining us there. echo 2.0, updated digital assistance with new capabilities and major price tag. mother's day even sweeter, the beau yet to sure to leave moms smiling, coming up think your large cap equity fund has exposure to energy infrastructure mlps?

maria: more turbulence for the airline to report. unbelievable seen at ft. lauderdale. fights broke out after spirit canceled flight. patrick, good to see you, sir, thank you so much for joining us. >> good morning, maria.
6:52 am
maria: is this just another disaster? has something change that had we have seen so much violence and upset? >> you know, the pr problems, the policy issues they have are just symptoms of the deeper problem and so many companies in the airline industry, they are fundamentally broken. they lack what i call organizational health, they are so dysfunctional. they can change all the policies about overbooking and they can negotiate with the union, but until the executive team gets better at leading, none of this is going to change. united has been in the news a lot, for 25 years this has been going on, these are just interesting symptoms. the fundamental problem exists at the leadership team and you contrast that with southwest airles where it's just a different world. it's just a different world. maria: it's true. dagen: i'm going push back, we were talking about it during the break, a huge part of the problem, fights break out, it's the passengers, it's people who
6:53 am
misbehave in the airport and you can say that they are frustrated because of security, because of the overcrowding, because the seats are small but ultimately these people behave boorishly and that's a huge part of the problem and one of the reasons that flying got awful. >> patrick -- >> i don't know what's the chicken or the egg. i think the origin of the problem is the way passengers are treated. yes, some people react poorly but when i fly, i talk to the employees there and they describe their management the same way we describe them. they are treated by their management the way we are treated by them which makes sense. they shouldn't, but they're looking for somebody that they can talk to who is responsible and when i herd about what happened at spirit, you know, we would like to think we would never do that, i understand the visceral reaction of people being treated poorly. i don't know if you saw the
6:54 am
couple got removed because they did policy change and they were going to throw them in jail. i never condone that kind of behavior. i certainly understand that customers have had it. dagen: as long as we make excuses for bad behavior, the more they are going to do it. policy is policy. if i'm told by an airline employee, i dog on well do it because i don't want to get thrown in jail. that's the post 9/11 world, like it or not. maria: that's right. >> i completely agree with you. customers this treat their customers this way go out of business but because they are protected and regulated and the unionization and everything else, they do not have the consequences that they have for their behavior. i totally agree. i think they just lose control.
6:55 am
>> patrick, it seems that there's a systematic problem would be p within the airline experience and it's not just the carriers, it's a security issue, it's the way airports are managed, the process is stressful by the time the customers get ready to board plane, they are about to loose it and you have employees ticked off at the company they work for because they are not given maybe salary increases, they are not given good conditions, then you have an absolute recipe for disaster and, you know, i've seen airlines like american, united, i fly all of the stinking time. when you have somebody who just ruins your day, the whole experience starts going south. i will contrast that, i fly delta most of the time, they make mistakes but day in and day out they do better and the reason they have turned a lot of their profits back to their employees and they say if we do well --
6:56 am
dagen: i love delta and the people who work for them. every time i'm on a plane there's some jerk who shoves me to board before me even though we are sitting in the same row. you know what, it's not the fault of the airline. there's a big loud-mouth jerk every time i board and it's not delta's fault. >> kick him, dagen. dagen: i would get arrested. jon: how is the experience from international airlines than the u.s.? what are they doing right that the american airlines are doing wrong? >> you know, what they do is they have a strategy. they are clear about priority and taking care of best customer and giving them the best experience. the problem with united, there's no clarity on what they substantiate for, culturally and strategically. you fly the airlines it's like what do you believe in, what's important and what's not. southwest is a great airline because they know who they are.
6:57 am
delta is better, so is alaska but most of the big legacy carriers is generic, the dmv in the sky, frankly, what do you do with that? maria: after the whole incident, you have to question what the heck they were thinking there. >> i agree. maria: patrick, good to see you, thank you so much. >> take care. maria: patrick joining us there. body like a bottle. take a look at all these bottles to represent women's bodies. not really.

7:04 am
we kick it off with top story. the judges chose to hear hawaii's challenge was randomly selected but three had been appointed under former president bill clinton raising questions of democratic opposition, listen to how a reagan attorney judge questioned and how this seems purely political. >> if some other candidate had won the election and issued this executive order that's before us, i gather you would have no problem that? >> yes, i gatt ner that case -- i gather it would be unconstitutional. maria: you have to connect the dots for me. >> i said on the big show that the big issue in front of the court was going to be is this order constitutional on its face and if a different president, say, if hillary clinton had won
7:05 am
or barack obama had enacted would it be constitutional. by saying, yes, i think the lawyer conceded in many respects, i think the lawyer conceded the case. the other side made concession as well. the other side was asked, what if president trump had said, would that strike down the statute and the lawyer for the government said, yes, that would strike down the statute. one of the judges said, be careful, you're opening the door too much so both sides have made concessions but the key issue that the supreme court will decide and this will go to the supreme court is whether you look at the ban on its face or you look at what a candidate said while running for office and i believe the court will ultimate i will say you look at the order on its face. you don't look at what a candidate said previously. maria: before he took the oath of office. >> that's right. maria: governor. >> i find it amazing that we are having the argument. from the beginning, i've heard you repeatedly say this is not
7:06 am
how you feel about donald trump, it's not about whether you agree with his policy. you might think policies are totally off the wall but it's whether he has the legal authority to do it. he can make the decision, he made the decision, if you don't like it, don't elect him another time. maria: guess what, the judges have done enough to just keep this order from going through. whether you like it or not -- >> the countries that were picked, they were picked by president obama. they were in his original order. so all president trump was saying, i'm going to take president obama's original order and eliminate one country and impose a 90-day ban. i think they are going to uphold the ban. there's a big difference as the governor said between approving of a statute, as a matter of policy and striking down and sally yates misunderstood that herself when she said, i think, i disagree with the policy
7:07 am
behind the statute but she couldn't quite bring herself to make the argument that it was unconstitutional when she reinforced to enforce it. as the acting attorney general, she should have litigated this even if she disagreed with it, leave it to the courts as one of the senators said, who appointed her to the supreme court. maria: that's right. jon: what does it boil down to the supreme court? >> it boils down to an issue of first impression. never before decided by the supreme court. if you have an order that on its face is constitutional but was written by a president who said things as a candidate that might suggest religious bias which is somewhat questionable, can you take into account what the candidate said in looking at an order that's otherwise constitutional and find it unconstitutional. jon: why would you? >> as one of the judges put it, what if you had a guy who ran for office -- say if marine la
7:08 am
pen had run in the united states, she clearly had racist views, antimuslim racist views, when i get elected, i'm going to make sure no muslim comes to the country. can you take an extreme statement into account. nothing president trump -- maria: nothing comes close to that. exactly. hard to imagine that because trump never said anything like that. >> what he said was a muslim ban, that was a shortcut and then he d rudy giuliani said something that i found to be ambiguous. what rudy giuliani told me to make it legal, don't make it a muslim ban, make it something else, make it a ban or terrorism and that's what ultimately in the second order particularly the administration did. if i were betting money on outcome of this case, i would bet on the supreme court, not even 5-4 but 6-3 or-72 upholding this order. >> one of the questions that came out of yesterday with sally
7:09 am
yates was from the senator of louisiana who said, we have a presumption that allow is constitutional and declared not to be. speak to that, because i thought it was a powerful moment and sally yates could really not respond to that. >> that's a really important question. let's assume that you have a attorney general -- let's assume you have statute that black people are going to drink from different water fountains, you'll never get that, the attorney general in the united states can't defend that even if the supreme court can't declared unconstitutional. but if you have an arguable case, half the judges one way and half the judges the other way, if you're an attorney general, you're advocate for one side, you make the case for its constitutionality, you leave it to the courts to decide. that's what the adversary system is about. maria: dagen, what do you think? dagen: alan, let's say the travel ban case goes to -- as you said it will go to the supreme court. how would this decision be
7:10 am
applied in our everyday life? how would it be applied to other cases potentially? >> remember, it's only a 90-day ban. it would not have impact on the daily lives of anybody. if you're a person from one of those states and you're prudent, you don't travel while the ban is in effect. you don't get yourself and after 90 days we will have a new law and we will see where the congress would broaden it beyond that. the issue of discrimination against muslim is a real one all over the world and we have to deal with it. the question is the context. muslim americans have a right not to be discriminated against but there's nothing in the constitution that gives that right to a person in yemen of muslim faith who has never come to the united states who wants to have the right, not a right, it's a privilege to come and
7:11 am
travel to the united states. you have to distinguish between americans and people who just want to come to our country. jon: we are going to be arguing for years over a 90-day ban. maria: that's true. 90 days. jon: what does that say about the security risk that they are trying address in this 90-day ban? we haven't had terror acts here. >> ic you can make a strong argument in policy that this is not the best way to protect but that's for the president to decide, that's for maybe congress to decide ultimately, the courts aren't experts in weighing the security advantages and disadvantages of one program over the other. they are experts only in deciding the constitutionality. >> don't you think it was right to fire sally yates for not carrying out her duty? >> i think that she invited firing for not carrying out her duty. when it happened, i criticized her. she should have carried out duty. she should only quit when she is absolutely certain that no
7:12 am
reasonable court would ever find that the ban was constitutional. this bandied not reach that criteria even the first -- didn't reach that criteria. maria: what was your overall take? >> i thought the part that dealt with her telling the white house about flynn she came across very well, very sobber, someone who was trying to protect the integrity of the united states, someone who alerted the white house to a potential problem of blackmail and i think we have to hear now from the white house, why they didn't seem to do anything for the period of several days between the time she told the white house and the -- jon: but they ended up firing. they did the right thing. >> they fired for not telling the truth tohe vicpresident. he should have been fired as well for posing a major security risk even if he had told the truth to the vice president, why didn't he tell the truth to the vice president? because he's afraid he would get fired if he did.
7:13 am
maria: what about the whole leak story? she didn't offer anything on how this got out. >> no, we have to think seriously about leaks, very serious. when they involve classified tirl as an american, whether you're a democrat or republican, you have to care about leaks coming from the government. that never should be justified. i was happy to hear that our our national security director that he said never leaked anything. maria: thank you so much. coming up a suspected serial killer on the loose in phoenix has been arrested. details on arrest. nabisco firing the new oero flavor

7:35 am
>> what about that kevin mccarthy agreed maybe we are losing messaging war even if you have fundamental story if you are not communicating well to your constituents, and the public at large, it doesn't matter; right? >> take the truth of what democrats are saying aside because it is absolutely false, it is republicans responsibility to get out and message this bill, and i have expressed that to everyone on leadership team we need a rapidly response team democrats libldz continue to put you will falls stories about what we are doing in health care we have rapid responses day by day responses what did they say that is not happening if you are going to win the vote, not just in the house but in the senate, you got to win the debate, and that happens in the media and everyone in power to go out there fight it i got to tell you it is not happening rightly now i would agree with you. >> congressman tell us then
7:36 am
what is it that your fighting for the line from republicans has always been well repeal of obamacare, so what do you want to create in its place? >> so first off we have to acknowledge what is happening democrats are saying people are going to die they want to send republicans ashes having die-ins, the bottom line obamacare is imploding unless subsidized by government you can't afford health care minnesota 50% arizona a one hundred percent doubled cost of premiums one year, iowa 894, 99 counties not going to have any providers in their counties, so this thing collapsing our job to go how do you make markets actually work in health care, we are trying to bring more choice, and competition, more market prilz into health care, so we think will reduce cost, and as you heard on this show there is three phases to this this bill that we passed in the
7:37 am
house one, prices work on regularly -- we have to come back with a bill going to be democrat buy-in brings competition across state lines tort reform three phase process i think can save health care. >> seems like one big failure has been that you federalize an issue the problem of obamacare you have a one-size-fits-all for all 50 states rural urban everything. couldn't the republicans look at this and say, instead of trying to create a federal program, we're going to road test various ideas take 10 states for an idea 10 states voluntarily take a appease find out what works, and you decentralize control aspect of health care he delivery woeblt that be more republican idea than still having it based in washington somebody has to figure out how to make it work in urban boston the s same way they would in rural arkansas. >> governor great to be on
7:38 am
with you, as you know i am a huge fan, you always make so much sense a great point. we do have the opt-out provision, in this bill that gives states autonomy authority have to set up health care the way they see fit, to your point is a right way to do health care, instead of having the brats centralized in washington make bureau cats making decisions if we give control to states to people, because as you know, the bureaucrat in washington doesn't know risk i face or risk that i have with family let me pick a plan that works for in the my life i have 8 kids with rife rachel you might think pretty smart duffy buying maternity coverage but if you have 58-year-old couple, they might go well you know that is probably not a risk we face in our life let's let people pick plans, that fit their risk and can when you do that, you are able to bring prices down, not only that, if we can help people which we're going to with preexisting conditions and you get the government to
7:39 am
step in, and help move them from the pools, because their helping with premiums, then that is not driving up your cost governor because you are paying for someone's preexisting conditions, like in wisconsin, we had a high-risk pool, that now with health care bill that we passed in the house federal government would help, subsidize the premiums, but you governor won't i think helps everybody in dropping premiums. maria: what are you hearing from constituents. >> about liberals are -- mad, this is this is went from women's march to the -- to the global warming march to now health care march they are just angry they are in a resist mode for everything, if you don't want to recognize it -- >> you are right a really resist mode keep trying to stop president trump's agenda your work on agenda, so what are you going to do for the next four years? are you going to constantly be on defense? >> -- maria two points, one, we have to get out there message better goes back to
7:40 am
the first question that you gave me,all republicans have to do this, we don't have the left wing media on our side left wing media will pick up any democrat line replay rerun every republican about it that is one issue but you have to look back to wisconsin, remember when scott walker did act 10 six years ago the protests on capital people so angry so energized, they went too far, there were too radical the middle part of wisconsin didn't agree with them i think liberals though angry not willing to work with new president won o the ectoral vote i think that that -- that -- i think we reject that don't want to see it want to see people work together i don't think they are billed their base by this resist rad kam movement i think they are losing people, but that aside we still have to message why we form health care why it is going to work for american family. dagen: congressman, because you can blame media all you want but we've had your
7:41 am
republican -- your brethren on this program, and when we've asked them specific tells me me how this is going to make lives better in terms of health care bill they don't really have very good answer not prepared with talking points to counter what democrats are saying marine layers of americans are going to lose health insurance you are killing people, people most in need and your brethren, they are not ready to talk about that. >> dagen spot-on, let me share my experience there is a document that was probably written three months ago by some intern in some committee that people ship around, to go here is what we do in health care. this is a vibrant living debate it changes every day, so if democrats make you know one charge, that media picks up, we have to be ready with rapidly responses to respond to it if you don't have a team in place, you know, crafting that response or helping people respond to it, you lose
7:42 am
debate, dagen are spot-on, i made the same point to everybody in leadership, that if you don't get your republican team wp right information about the attacks coming every day we will lose the debate and hard to save people bring down premiums. >> congressman you talk about democrats being in resist mode they certainly are right now republicans were also in resist mode when object was president. so my question is is any of this ever going to change? what are the -- prospect we get back to some period where republicans and demoats rk together, on some issue, like tax reform, or health care reform to get something done? >> so just let me just distinguish the two quickly, the tea party was you know a bunch of people keep your hands off my piggy bank, a set of grounds no garbage on street, the tea party wasn't burning things and smashing windows beating people up, that didn't happen in tea
7:43 am
party movement so i think people could relate to the message that they are driving, that is different than what the resist movement is doing but to your point i think on tax reform democrats wouldn't join republicans on individual tax reform i think they see converions that there is a need for keerpt tax reform i think you get 60 votes in the senate if you are able to look at hearts of democrat senators but resist movement in their home state won't allow any democrat senators to work with any republicans to give donald trump a win in taxes what would resist movement do to those senators will slaughtering them stuck in a really hard place want to do good things but also have this radical left wing movement crushing them. maria: yeah. >> we will see. >> congressman good to see you thanks so much congressman sean duffy there even that resist movement that you referred to, under president obama republicans weren't protesting violently keeping down conservative conversations, and weren't

8:04 am
blake burman at a time white house. reporter: sally yates testifying on capitol hill yesterday before senate she approached the white house in first days of the trump presidency, because as she put it, she had information that michael flynn was lying to the vice president mike pence about contacts he made with russian ambassador, at the time, yates was the acting attorney general, flynn the national security adviser, and yates testified yesterday that the big fear then was that flynn was compromised. >> netter did we believe russians knew this but likely had proof of this information, and that created a compromise situation, a situation where the national security adviser essentially could be blackmailed by the russians sna yates testimony yesterday came about an hour or so after the white house admitted, that when president-elect trump at the time in november came here to the white house to sit down with president obama president
8:05 am
obama indeed warned elect about hiring flynn at briefing appraise secretary sean spicer said part of the blame lies with the obama administration. >> the question that you have to ask yourself really is president obama was truly concerned about general flynn why didn't he suspend general flynn's security clearance they reapproved months earlier the question has to be what did they do a if they had real concerns beyond not liking him for some of the comments that he made. >> yates was not the only one to testify, yesterday, stoo did director of national intelligence former director james clapper something he said caught the eye of president trump. the president started a series of tweets yesterday by writing the following, quote, director clapper resiliented what everybody including fake media already knows there is no evidence of collusion with russia and trump maria another tweet president also said whole story is a total hoax he called it a taxpayer funded charade. maria: yep um-hmm blake thank
8:06 am
you blake burman at the white house former the orange under george w. bush john ashcraft mr. attorney general a pleasure thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you, maria good morning. maria: your reaction to the hearing yesterday? >> well, the hearing regarding flynn's remarks and the conflict between what he said what vice president said he said later on not really in much s dispute i think everyone agreed to that that is -- the problem that he was unmasked or this is leaked to the public, and the like, this is a criminal act of his wasn't addressed you have hysteria about may be russians were involved trying to upset our election, or to influence our election, masking the problem a crime was committed when people improperly leaked identity of someone whose information was gained as a result of surveillance, there is a little tension between
8:07 am
what director clapper said, and what sally yates said director clapper said there was no evidence sally yates says i can't say whether there was evidence because that is classified this seems to be that miss yates is saying the absence of evidence or absence of information is classified information. now that was not the interpretation apparently that was -- was given by the director of national security there, the intelligence community mr. clapper, so we have a situation where the left continues to want to argue about and i think we all want to minimize russian interference in american elections, but, at the same time, we also have to understand that america has is involved in elections around the world just last week, the fren tweek french elected a new president, and was part of obama's
8:08 am
involvement in election to endorse macron that resulted in macron being elected, last year the midst of the campaign understood that our state department sent about 350,000 dollars to israeli political organizations, whose purpose utilization to destabilize election of israeli leader netanyahu the idea we are shocked someone would seek to influence elections is a little bit naïve, the point is that we should do what we can to limit that flus when done illegally that is a matter very serious we should make others pay for it. maria: you make a good point the truth is president obama did try to influence elections, both in israel as well as now in france, and he made no bones about it he came out and he supported and as you just the laid it out, but you know yesterday was interesting, because sally yates answered things she wanting to talk about in terms
8:09 am
of why she alerted people about michael flynn when what she knew about michael flynn when asked other things about unmasking about surveilling said she couldn't o o hid behind classified information will we ever actually get details on that? i mean would lindsey graham be able to solicit that information? in a private meeting because she did pick and choose in terms of what have she wanted to answer, and in many cases it was well i do know the answer to that but i can't tell you. >> well, senator cornyn indicated that his presence both on intelligence committee as well as on the subcommittee of judiciary when was hearing yesterday, gave him a unique insight into things that were otherwise unavailable generally. so i think the senate is in a position to gain that kind of information ultimately i think crimes of unmasking american citizens insdebtly swaled a result of intelligence operation, that unmasking ought to have consequences.
8:10 am
and miss yates one time during yesterday's hearing said there augment to be prosecution for i think one thing ought to be prosecuted those illegally leaked identities of american citizens collected as part of swines that is infringement of rights of since i don't know a that she took extraordinary steps to do that, but,that is one area i agree that we could process acute. >> we have spoken in the past about politicization of so many agencies within government it continues today mr. attorney general what are we going to do in order to reverse this this is a huge thing, that so many agencies are politicized i have been told this weekend i was told that president trump's first four executive orders he wrote the orders and before he actually signed the orders,
8:11 am
obama holdouts changed the language of those orders, they went into the order and they took out words like islamic terrorists jihadists took outside words they want to take out by the time it reached president's desk so that he could sign it it was found before he actually signed it, it was found that the words were changed the language was changed, this is a serious issue, if you've got holdouts from a prior administration, that are doing everything they can to create land mines for president trump, and ultimately stop his agenda that is not what people voted for. >> right. your last remark is most probative there is undemocratic the people elected president with a mandate to put the mandate in place he does so by crafting orders that are passed upon even by career employees in the justice department like the office of legal counsel the group of best lawyers in the department, and then a person highly charged with
8:12 am
some sense of self-righteous understanding comes and sets it adecided to become swement is in yates decided what was constitutional unconstitutional and went beyond the order crafted and admitted in the hearing yesterday that she was considering statements being made in the political universe in the culture that would somehow make what was otherwise constitutional unconstitutional and, therefore, she said should he would not defend it you know we have a principal in the united states, that everyone is entitled to a day in court according to miss yates it must be that everyone except president of united states entitled to day in court because she wasn't going to allow him having acted in the way the justice department office of legal counsel said totally legal having acted in a way legal she of this going to give the president his day in court. maria: she wasn't, what advice to have you --
8:13 am
>> then for jeff sessions the president today he is being stopped in terms of agenda look at immigration ban, look at policy that is taking slower than people thought, so the obstructionism the political drivers within the administration that are you know, issue career -- career people are stopping the agenda, they are slowing it down and he still has a lot of unfilled seats. >> well, the key is having leadership in the department i think jeff sessions defended president's order miss yates decided she would be only attorney general in the history of the united states to go against the judgment of office of legal council and suspended the president's order not provide it so having people confirmed and in positions of leadership gives them the opportunity to direct the department so that is something that has been sorely absent themen people have been derived by this with
8:14 am
obstructionism of what they are entitled to a democracy expects the mandate of the person elected to have at least a fair chance, and at minimum day in court. >> attorney general happy birthday to you. >> [laughter] thank you. >> happy birthday good to see you, sir. we'll be right back. 5 but when family members forget, trust angie's list to help.

8:24 am
the trump administration so far has done so much, to roll back regulations, do you expect that to be not just trend out of washington but at state and local level if those government officials see this rollback bearing fruit? >> i would hope dagen i really hope that is the case but the problem is a lot of these large cities are controlled bir liberal democratic governments not going to react the same way that president trump's reacting other republican governors are reacting so you have a problem in a city like pittsburgh trying to put too much pressure on this company take too much from it, and the company as a choice leaves so i hope the lesson is learned we have to wait and see. maria: want to get to tax reform andy house speaker paul ryan house majority leader mccarthy addressed efforts to all very tax code for individuals and businesses, they have a timeline in place, tax reform listen to this i want to get your reaction. >> sure. >> we have a real problem which is we have one of the worst tax systems in the industrialized world costing
8:25 am
is jobs costing economic growth, we tax our businesses or i products a whole lot more than our foreign competitors tax theirs we've got to radically simplify the tax code if we want to compete we have to have a taxi code to a compete lower corporate rate repatriation bring trillions of dollars overseas into america make it simply make it fair fair to me is a strongest word possible, we've got seven different individuals rates lower that to three. >> that was he kevin mccarthy on program yesterday i saw your tweets you tweeted focus on tax revenue not tax rates good tax policy creates jobs increases wages reduces inhe equality with growth everybody gets goodies you think growth generated by tax cuts will pay for this. >> let me tell you i am always in favor of people keeping more of what they earn if middle-class working americans are able to keep more what they earn i think that is great but the focus of this tax bill this is why the speaker we have such a great
8:26 am
speaker such a great majority leader comments put emphasis where it should be, the emphasis of this presidency of this tax plan should be a booming economy, a booming economy that raises wages, that opens paths to the middle class, allows people to keep more what they earn a creates prosperity tax revenue doesn't so much worry about this persons going to punished or this person going to be benefited but increasing revenue crying that booming economy that got tournament trump elected if house members have any sense at all, they will know that that needs to be their focus, they need to get this bill done if they want to keep the house in 2018 i think they said exactly the right thing. >> have andy mike you can have be. >> good talking to you to hear from you. >> great to talk to you i think the republicans need to do barter job of explaining why corporate tax instructions are important because -- a lot of americans never understand there is no such thing as corporate tax because ultimately it is passed to consumer so if corporations
8:27 am
were taxed less it doesn't adversely affect consumers very positively affects them why don't we push for that? and stimulate the economy with that? >> well we absolutely should, and that is obviously what the president is doing, but the more money that the less money corporations pay in government taxes, the more they have to invest, and the more they have to distribute to dividends to shaerdz, and the more they can use to pay their employees, so it is a you know a three fer employees make more, sharing make more people get to invest creates more jobs, more economic growth we need that economic boom that will generate tax revenue not punish people but increase tax revenue that is example with a reducing tax code does makes us more competitive companies want to stay in america, not where they feel compelled to go overseas to take advantage of lower taxes so it is a huge win, we just need to get it done. >> all right -- andy great to see you thanks so much.

the coast -- so what the administration will have to see, is that there is not much room, for cooperation with russia, but there is some, and i think that what you saw was secretary tillerson when in moscow a while ago, was willingness to be tough with russians to say to them, on syrian chemical weapons difference either i can't or weren't telling the truth so that straight talk to russians, a measure of respect with vladimir putin who is somebo somebodyed a miers strength. >> does appear rex tillerson understands that is putting that trip food are in terms of being tough i know you worked with him in past speculation you were playing a very big role in terms of donald trump -- considering rex tillerson seating was this your idea. >> one of i am sure many people brat the name forward the president needed a different kind of secretary of state, and rex tillerson was

8:40 am
steadily worse first of all, a leader not kim kim jong-il but kim jong-un seems more reckless, and even i don't know if he is unhinged but i am not sure really good grip on reality when he says things like i can destroy the united states, it also indicates the north korean program has progressed over the last several years, they have gotten more capable more -- they automobile are making progress toward longer range delivery systems maybe even intercontinental systems can reach united states no american president can tolerate that the administration is trying to change china's calculus china is really the only country with any influence, i don't think complete influence, but some influence with north koreans also a reluctant to do tough things worried about collapse of the regime more
8:41 am
than worried about a nuclear north korea. the administration is saying to them, worry more about nuclear north korea. because if you can't do something about the path they are on, we will have to. they are keeping the military option on the table, as well they should although everybody understands that it is difficult option to execute the situation is going to be complicated further by what happened in south korea in elections by all reports, this is going to be south korean government more favorable disposition towards north korea but we are going to have to say to that government do you understand that this missile defense --o pry to protect you don'even think about trying to end the isolations of north koreas american president will not tolerate the situation. >> a good point about what

china may or may not want if you saw regime go away die what does that mean for refugees are they flooding into china don't want that. >> don't want that that long board they share they believe unstable the alternative is north korean regime keeps on the path it is n ultimately confronts american president i don't know if a year from now three years from now five years from now, having to use military force, to deal with that we with the capabilities of north korea so i would say the chinese nobody wants to take advantage of what might happen in north korea most especially united states. we've got to get tougher with that. maria: em. >> so many big issues in the world earlier i was speaking with john ash covet about importa porization, unfilled seats jobs need to be filled not a
