5:17 am
to make sure they go into raqqah, hit them at the commanding control center and hit supply line bus this was the brutal decision-maker that had to go. lea: we heard claims like this before, the question is this going to be more credible. kristin, i want to go to you, do you think that's now bearing fruit? >> if this report is true, as you mentioned, there have been reports in the past that baghdadi had been killed, if this is true it's huge, number one enemy in the fight against isis and this is a reminder that we do share a common enemy with russia, isis, isis has caused war across europe and the united states. trump has said he's willing to work with any nation and a place where we can go with russia. lauren: does this give putin creditability, steve?
5:18 am
>> ronald reagan trust but verify f russia can verify that they took him out, then this is a big deal and it really solidifies efforts with russia to take isis out. lea: of course, we know we have to question everything that's coming out of russia, we will see what turns up on that. let's turn to robert mueller investigation. there's report that is mueller is opening investigation into the firing of former fbi director james comey. given that relationship, kristin, i want to ask you, do you think that this potentially represents conflict of interest for mueller and will people will be calling for him to resign? >> he should resign, mueller has got to go, the conflict of interest is glaring. the special counsel statute specifically states that mueller is banned from serve if he has a personality relationship with anyone substantially involved in the investigation or the prosecution mueller and james comey are life-long friends,
5:19 am
folks at the fbi say they were attached tat hip while working in the doj. this is incredibly troubling. lauren: good point, kristin, and his investigation seems to be never-ending, steve. now they are investigating kushner, the son-in-law of president trump. >> you're absolutely right. 38 years i spent in law enforcement, i worked closely with fbi agents at the national joint terrorist force, the fbi in my whole life was the role immediate nationwide, it has permanently been damaged because of james comey and robert mueller's relationship as kristin said is really troubling, he has to go and go now. >> to be fair, many agents within the fbi have said that they did support comey and they they respected him when they were working for him. so i just want to mention that. thank you, guys, both. coming up in sports, ricky

5:47 am
investigation so far? >> our nation is in serious trouble because of these leaks and the justice department at this point in time is going to have the clean out every intelligence agency. there has to be a lot of revetting of everyone who works in the intelligence structure of the united states government. i've never seen anything like this in the years i have been in law enforcement. something has to be done now because the leaks are very damaging to national security as well as the recent investigations. lauren: kristin, do you think the leaks say something and the continued leak that is we seep saying about mueller's handling of this investigation? >> i do, i mean, look this seems to be an investigation in search of a crime. there's still no hard evidence that donald trump obstructed justice. he had every right to fire james comey and didn't obstruct justice if he instructed comey to stop investigating flynn. the only crime that we know are happening right now are the continuous leaks to the media
5:48 am
that are meant to take down trump. it's ridiculous -- lea: you're saying there's no obstruction of justice if he did tell comey not to investigate flynn, you don't think it's not obstruction of justice? >> the president has every right -- he could have pardoned flynn, but back to mueller, i think that he needs to resign immediately and if he doesn't trump should fire him, he is good friends with the star witness against the donald trump, everyone in dc say that is mueller is a good-honest guy with integrity but even good and honest people can be influenced by perm connections, that is is why we have ethics rules in place. lea: steve, i want to get your take on that and top aide for vice president pence says that vice president has hired a personal criminal defense lawyer to guide him through the investigations. do you see him now as a target? >> well, he's doing that to protect himself in the event that he is subpoenaed before any congressional hearing or by
5:49 am
mueller. in my view the president of the united states has been telling the truth all of along. and as kristin said, where is the evidence, where's the probable cause? it seems to me they're on a fishing expedition and this is why the american people are losing confidence in this investigation and the only way to straighten it out mueller has to step down and bring somebody else in there that is not connected in any way, shape or form to the justice department or any intelligence agencies. lauren: donald trump tweeted they made up phone yes collusion with story and now they go for obstruction of justice on the phoney story, nice. but all of this, kristin, final few second here, this is a distraction to the trump agenda of getting stuff done on the economy? >> it's a huge distraction, look, terrorism continues to rock the globe, our border is still porous, americans want change. lea: all right, we have to go,
5:50 am
