trish: a motion to start debate taking place tomorrow, what follows. remains a mystery, uncertain whether lawmakers will take up house bie bill erase, repeal ane or repeal only. joining me now to discuss latest on health care, and more is ed rollins, who served in their presidential administrations, chief political visor to
7:15 pm
republican leadership, ed rollins. >> thank you. trish: what are they going to vote on? >> if they don't know, then i don't know. they are voting on something. i think they vote for a repeal. i think the end of the day, healthcare bill that pathed house does not have support in senate. i don't think it is one or two, it is more. we'll see. i think critical thing, i would hope, someone steps forward, and said i'll cast the vote to let process begin. give them a couple more days too get here. trish: that would be generous, but expecting a lot. >> he is a good guy, they should help him. trish: they should. they should also step forward and help their own party? their president. he is referring to them now as the sewer. as opposed to swamp.
7:16 pm
is it that bad? >> i think it is a complicated issue. we have talked about on the show here, is democrats put together a brilliant political plan, a bad healthcare plan, but they have taken all these people, put them on medicaid, you are taking something away from them now, they are very unhappy. there is not a clear cut bill without support. normally you could have moved it forward, but not at-this-point in time. hopefully it will get through, and amendments tomorrow will make it a better bill, and we'll look back and say it a victory. trish: how scared. they don't want to own it or being tainted by something that does not succeed. and it seems as though, you keep in mind, none of them would have campaigned like he did. none of them would take or will take the chances that he has.
7:17 pm
so how does he bring them along? >> i think he can't threaten them. one thing that i learned, you don't threaten a senator that forces them to rally around. you put pressure, convince them, this president is doing a good job today of selling the program. he should have been out a month ago selling it. he should have made it about healthcare. i think it is a learning experience on everyone's part. including his and his white house. hopefully they learn with a success. trish: they have a lot of the distractions namely russia, he is coming out swinging, seems against jeff sessions his attorney general. is he right to do so? tioshould not sessions step up o the play. >> ideally you wish that would
7:18 pm
occur, problem is jeff sessions is a man of great integrity, who is beloved by senate. you go after sessions, you have to understand he served 25 years in senate. other senators will not like that, nice thing would be if sessions said, i am going to step aside. if he did that, president can appoint his own person, he should have someone, i say this name, not someone i like but answerric -- eric holder for donald trump, your lawyer, fight every day. do what president wants. trish: jeff sessions is not that 57. >person no. trish: he had an opportunity too come clean earlier, he should have disclosed, why not go to the president now, it sounds like that is what you are telling him to do. >> i wouldn ' i think, at-this-e gave up senate seat, he could
7:19 pm
have held for long time. hard to get back in good graces, if i was an adviser to senatorrin sessions, which i am not, i have great respect for him, i would say it probably best to step aside for the good of the country. trish: thank you very much ed rollins. >> cast your s vote on twitter. follow lou on twitter. on facebook, and instagram,. he has been getting a ton of tweets on his new thriller with jim borne. putin 's gambit. >> i would love lou to read it, autographed by you. you are only news man that i

7:26 pm
90 miles off the coast, one of chinese fighter flew under the navy aircraft before pulling up, coming within 300 feet, just days after navy officer spoke with his chinese counterpart about stepping up pressure on north korea. joining me now, retired four-star general jack keane, a fox news analyst, good to see you tonight, what are we going to do with china and north korea? >> we're on a collision course with china, what is happening we're returning to an era of resurgences of great power competition. united states, russia and china, and second tier is north korea and iran. china, really hassett out -- set out a clear strategy for themselves. in the past we had difficulty understanding but now they write it down, revising regional order in the south china sea and east
7:27 pm
china sea, that is what this provocation is about, sending clear signals to us but more important that our allies in re john, that united states is not the reliable ally it used to be, there is an erosion of capability, and an erosion of u.s. political will, they have in last 8 years, it is true, and they sense that. trish: but have you a new administration. >> i was about to say, what is new, that trump administration, but 6 months into it, has trying to return american leadership to world stage promoting prosperity, peace, security and reasuring our allies, that does not mean that china is not going to continue on this aggressive road to dominate the region, also in their mind to be on par with united states in near future, and long future, they have written it down, they want to replace united states as the
7:28 pm
premenpreglobal power in the wo, coming up we'll have confrontation with china. trish: but how soon, seems it is already starting. question is how far do we want to take this? can we get china to cooperate with us, in terms of dealing with north korean threat? >> well, with that, i think probably, most likely, we'll wind up having to issue fairly tough sanctions on the chinese that will impact us economy likely. it appears that we have been talking about this ever since mar-a-lago, jump meet with xi, and he gave xi a hand to see if he would do something, we don't have results. and i think that get their attention we'll have to put some
7:29 pm
significant pressure on them. trish: trying to get our attention from hill tear militay perspective. >> we need a strategy to deal with china writ large, and a government strategy, they have done with our predecessor presidents and what that i want to do with trump, because of the intereconomic rape, leavinterece us alone, we want to have our way there but it is our. and because now the american people are at risk with north korea and our allies at risk. trish: they have grown their economy. scaring to think they could grow their military to rival us as well. general jack keane thank you so much. call ways good too have your perspective. trish: we're coming right back with much more stay with us. >> trump administration is cracking down on illegal leaks. >> only crime so far are leaks, the deep state leaks, intelligence leaks. they imperil all of us.

7:35 pm
are bad about supporting the current administration. i think some of the leaks have come from republican side, i think this is something that needs to be dealt with. as anthony said, dealt with severely and quickly. now they have said this,y this have to follow through. i think there are some things they can do, to increase the ability to detect these and trace them back. and let's face it, certain networks and news outlets have been way compliant in taking information that is not accurate, and often embellished. this surrounded mining the ability of the president to do his job. trish: they have been running it, it. i imagine it must be difficult, thinking from a business perspective, you are ceo of a company, you come in as new ceo, you have a bunch of people there that do not want to see you succeed.
7:36 pm
they have their own biased and are conspiring against you. and doing everything they can to hurt you. you have to work pretty quickly to change that culture, so that you have a fighting chance. >> right, using that metaphor of business, president trump is answerable to bored of directors -- board of directors that is the american people, mr. trump understands that and anthony scaramucci gets that as well. this is where there is an understanding of what needs to be done. this is is not going to be easy or pleasant. and to be honest -- >> i think it will be easy and pleasant. i mean -- >> it would for me. i have a list of folks that i think i could identify quickly, part of the problem, you serve at behest of president, it is a privilege note a right. and i think -- note not a right, he needs to go through
7:37 pm
with a severe eye on, if you are not there to support the president, you should not not be there. trish: then you bring in people who do want to support president. this is not unprecedented. didn't president obama actively get rid of the leakers? >> he is very severe, i think in many ways, inappropriately so going after whistle-blowers, you need whistle-blowers, with that said, these are not whistle-blowers, these people putting information out are doing what they can to destroy national security, i said, i go to some examples how these like of sensitive intelligence techniques is doing grave damage to our ability to college foreign threats, that is problem with president obama he turned the -- against domestic target, that is also something that this white house should investigate and wholesale misuse of
7:38 pm
intelligence capabilities. trish: at-this-point, president is losing confidence in him. we heard from ed rollins, said he has to go, do you agree? does jeff sessions need to go? . >> i respect mr. rollins a great deal. he is correct, if you can't handle the heat of the kitchen, it is time take off the chef's hat and move out. this is well defined criminal activities after last administration too include president obama's staff, hillary clinton a campaign, and clear links between russians and tony and john podesta, why are they not being investigated? this is a mystery it me, if you use rule of law as primary force behind actions of your administration. trish: eric holder might have done that, had tables been turned. quickly, before i let you go, thought on jared kushner, said
7:39 pm
there was now collusion, there were 4 meetings with three people, partly a mistake with a e-mail his he would have included them in disclosure, what is your reaction to what you heard from mr. kushner? >> i understand the atmospheric this was a come fleca complex high-speed time. you get an e-mail say go to this meeting, have said this before. i got pillared on another network, everyone had to go to that meeting to find out what the dirt, if there was dirt. we would be responsible to go to a meeting like that, the last thing you want is to idea of a foreign power having dirt on a potential president of united states, this is where it turned 180, you had to do that and find out, and again, as testified to by jared today, there was nothing, it was a big nothing burger in
7:40 pm
the meeting, you get up and leave his testimony is compelling with what i understand. the circumstance would have been in this meeting, it seems to measure up to all i heard. trish: colonel shafer, i have said before, as though, you know, if you dare to had met a russian in a bar you have to disclose it. >> you can't drink vodka in this town without people thinking you are russian now. >> i am glad i am irish. i different story. colonel shave irthank you shafe. >> thank you. trish: vote in tonight's poll. cast your vote on twitter @lou dobbs, let's roll this video. look here. one man, going on a high-flying adventure through the mountains of romania implying through a thick blank iblanket of fog before swiping down to the narrow valley with a series of dips

7:46 pm
investigation, and clintons, we're join by judicial watch president tom fin ten. starting with sessions why is it that jeff sessions is note beinnot being more aggressive. >> he has recused himself. and now the whole russia collusion scandal. into an investigation. the president has a right to expect his attorney general and his appointees will supervise prosecutors appropriately, that is not happening here, he is not answerable to anyone, mueller is not, that raising constitutional concerns, from a practical perspective who is
7:47 pm
running the show at justice department. this is a major investigation done without any adult supervision, and many that justice department is awol on. trish: sessions in your view, i am guessing he needs to go. >> not go but step up. trish: you give him more leash, do a better job. >> he can unrecuse himself, i think he was cornered into initially recusing himself, i think he inappropriately dand i think he should fix it and run the justice department and take control of the investigations as appropriate. trish: don't you think that our president was trying to give hillary clinton the benefit of the doubt? he wanted to move on. he wanted to move forward to healthcare and repeal and replace, he wanted to move forward, still does with tax cuts, he did not want to get
7:48 pm
bogged down but instead the tables reversed they went after him, for you know basically a lot of things that there not a ton of any evidence for. while high coul he could have gone after her for things there is evidence on. >> he tends to take leadership in areas where his appointees fail to take leadership where they are supposed to, he said i'm not going after hillary clinton, that is what you expect an incoming president to say, he is guessing his attorney general will do what is necessary under law to investigate anything that needs to be investigated this did not happen. so he had to step up here. and it would be nice in the justice department would do what i think this americans expect. where is follow-up on that, from congress and from justice department. trish: so, who else in the administration right now should put pressure on jeff
7:49 pm
sessions to do his job? why don't they say, get outdo something? >> i don't know who else you need to put pressure on him other than the president. trish: just the president, okay. >> president made is clear, and what is the appropriate response? did he recuse himself appropriately, if he did not, he should unrescues himself. trish: or put this to bed and goes off to sunset, and you find someone else. >> if we can't do this key job, you know there will be a breaking point. either he steps up, and takes control of his justice department, or the pressure will b be a-- untenable, a terrible situation for sessions who is doing great work on fighting crime, and rule of law, and crazy agenda of the obama justice department. trish: they are not going to let it go. you know, president may have been willing to give hillary
7:50 pm
clinton the benefit of the doubt, but as though it has turned. people have gotten a amnesia and for got en -- good to see you, tom. >> thank you. trish: coming up, president trump challenging the senate to fulfill its promise. >> obamacare has broken our healthcare system, broken. it is collapsing. it gone. now it is up to us to get great healthcare for the american people. >> mollie heming way and ned ryan of join me after the break. stay with us. just like the people who own them, every business is different. but every one of those businesses will need legal help as they age and grow. whether it be help starting your business, vendor contracts or employment agreements.

asked you do you think the white house should be doing more to disqualify the special counsel because of its conflicts of interest. if i'm the president i'm going to be very upset the idea james comey's buddy is running the investigation and he has stacked the deck with a bunch of people who donated to hillary clinton
7:55 pm
or the dnc. >> this absurd. 7 of the 15 people on the special counsel team have donated to hillary clinton or the democrats editorial committee. one of the picks is the clinton foundation lawyer fighting the foia request for emails connected to the private server. a lot of us are frustrate when we look at deputy attorney general rod rosenstein. i haven't signed off on some of this stuff because he's not required to check in on some of these individual decisions. this is something trump will have to push against. i think he can actually start to push hard and deal with it in
