i mean he is a very aggressive we peel another piece back it leaves more unanswered questions person who wants to reinstate which we're trying to get to the bottom of. maria: mr. chairman you've got to explain what you just said i think this is extraordinary that soviet influence even though the soviet no longer exists and you're telling us that in order therefore, i always felt it was for the fbi, the department of very important for the united states to be very forceful in justice to launch an investigation into so-called dealing with putin. maria: mr. president let me ask collusion between president you a little about the news trump and the russians, there because last week we saw was no official intelligence president trump pardon scooter libby. >> yeah, good. used, then how did this maria: your reaction? investigation start? >> my reaction is i'm happy for i don't understand, sir please scooter and his family. maria: did you see the wall explain. >> well, i think that is the street journal headline saying point. we don't understand. scooter libby was the soldier, left on the battlefield? we've never understood because >> no, i didn't see that but we have access to these finished you know, i'm sure he's got some intelligence products and we've friends in editorial board there never seen one. and as i said i'm happy for his so we thought well maybe there was one that went through a family and for scooter. different channel that was kept maria: mrs. bush, you remained really quiet that was secret, it was kept from the congress and one of the most popular and loved first ladies of all-time. other folks. well, in fact, after our >> all right >> [laughter] investigators reviewed this, maria: and you have your own that is not what happened. incredible leadership style. there was no five eyes do you want to pass on any words intelligence product as its been of advice to our current first lady melania trump?
reported. there was no product and i think >> no, i wouldn't give her that's a major problem because advice but i've met melania she we have to have trust with our partners with our allies. invited me to tea at the white we have to make sure that our house and she's a beautiful agencies talk, and they work out woman and very very lovely. >> so are you honey. problems. we have to make sure that they >> oh, thank you, darling, and don't spy on either american i think she will do very well. citizens or we're not spying on maria: my thanks to president british citizens. these are all things that have bush and former first lady laura been around for decades, so and this is even more critical let's bush and my thanks to the george just at the highest level what w. bush presidential center. we will take a break when we is this? what is this about? come back does the dnc lawsuit this was about a counter against russia wikileaks of the intelligence trump campaign have any merit investigation that was at the we're debating that with our height of a political campaign sunday morning futures right now with the panel on deck. where you opened up an investigation using these intelligence services to spy on the other campaign. it's really serious stuff. maria: it's quite extraordinary, so you're investigating the state department. does that mean it was hillary clinton pulling the strings? i mean, here you have hillary clinton former secretary of state. she's the other candidate.
is she pulling the strings on an investigation launched on her opponent? her political opponent, donald trump? >> well, we don't know that yet , but what i can tell you, i can tell you what we do know. we do know that long time associates of hillary clinton including sidney blumenthal and another person i think corey she er were actively giving information to the state department that was somehow making its way to the fbi. this is from two people within the state department who have now publicly come out and said this in i think in major news publications, so we know this. we know this was at least from at least two witnesses who have publicly said this and so what we're trying to do is piece all of that together. retail. under pressure like never before. we now know there was no and it's connected technology official intelligence used to that's moving companies forward fast. start this investigation. we know that sidney blumenthal e-commerce. and others were pushing real time inventory. virtual changing rooms. information into the state department so we're trying to piece all of that together and that's why retailers rely on comcast business that's why we continued to look
to deliver consistent network speed at the state department. maria: we are awaiting the ig across multiple locations. report as it relates to james every corporate office, warehouse and store comey, as it relates to the handling of the hillary clinton near or far covered. e-mail investigation. leaving every competitor, threat and challenge outmaneuvered. we got these comey memos this week. tell me what you got from these comcast business outmaneuver. memos, what struck you most? >> well the main reason we wanted them out is because the this wi-fi is fast. i know! i know! mainstream media and the i know! democrats have been running i know! when did brian move back in? around talking about collusion collusion collusion when they figured out there was no brian's back? collusion, they moved on to he doesn't get my room. obstruction of justice, obstruction of justice, he's only going to be here for like a week. obstruction of justice. like a month, tops. what mr. gowdy who was able to review these along time ago and oh boy. wi-fi fast enough for the whole family is mr. goodlatte had said and now we month this from reading them simple, easy, awesome. is that once you read all of the in many cultures, young men would comey memos, it becomes exhibit stay with their families until their 40's. a in a defense against there was no obstruction of justice so weli can tell you about...re. streaming the most free tv shows and movies on the go. this would, so i think when you read all of them, good legal yeah, and... minds review these. xfinity internet. it's so fast! when you have the president of the united states saying look, and you can save by... investigate all of my people, by getting up to 5 mobile lines included. anybody in my campaign was whoa, you're good.
colluding with the russians. i want to know and they need to i'm just getting started. ♪ be brought to justice. simple. easy. awesome. something of that nature is in come see how you could save $400 or more a year the comey memos, so this is why with xfinity mobile. the comey memos needed to get plus ask how to keep your current phone. out because if there is visit your local xfinity store today. obstruction of justice we want to know about it but clearly there wasn't and that's what the comey memos prove. now i think for mr. comey when we're all under one roof now. you match up his memos with congratulations. thank you. what's in his book, with the how many kids? my two. his three. interviews that he's giving, i along with two dogs and jake, our new parrot. think he's got a lot of problems that is quite the family. quite a lot of colleges to pay for though. coming in the future as it relates to what the ig is a lot of colleges. you get any financial advice? looking at into his behavior yeah, but i'm pretty sure it's the same plan during the clinton e-mail they sold me before. well your situation's totally changed now. investigation. maria: well what kind of right, right. problems? i mean we know the ig has how 'bout a plan that works for 5 kids, recommended criminal charges 2 dogs and jake over here? that would be great. against his former deputy andrew that would be great. that okay with you, jake? get a portfolio that works for you now mccabe. where does that go? and as your needs change what does that mean criminal from td ameritrade investment management. charges? where do you see that going and is that the same fate that we will see for james comey? maria: welcome back president trump firing back at democrats >> well, it's hard to say right after the dnc filed a lawsuit now but we know that so mr. against the trump campaign wikileaks and russia for mccabe has been recommended election meddling the president pointing fingers at former dnc that he face criminal charges.
chair debbie wasserman schultz now his lawyer and he has a right to his lawyer, his lawyer for refusing to give the fbi has said no this is not true access to computer servers that what the ig, mr. comey is lying the dnc says were hacked in 201n essentially is what mr. mccabe is saying that comey did give information and smear the clinton campaign. let's bring in our panel ed him the right to go talk to the rollins as a republican campaign press, so this all has to be advisor and former campaign man anger for the reagan bush ticket flushed out. clearly the ig believed mr. in 1984 a fox news contributor, christopher bedford, editor in comey that comey did not chief at the daily caller and author of the art of the donald give mr. mccabe the ability to good to see you both. go talk to the press. >> good morning. now as it relates to mr. comey my thoughts one of the stupidest you've got the added problem now that the memos that he wrote the things the democrats could have donald open up a can of worms seven memos that he decided to write on president trump never they don't want to open up. this guy was on the hill and he wrote memos on any of the other and his whole family had total meetings that he had with the other president or the ag or access to all of the democrats anyone else prior to this, but information on the hill, all of he kept seven memos four of the information that debbie had at the dnc, and i think find it those were classified. he decided to lander them to a was a real source of the leaks. friend who then leaked them to the new york times. maria: well this is the iwan if those memos contain brothers and you've done so much great reporting on this at classified information, he the daily crawler christopher so purposely did that, he purposely leaked them in order to get a thank you for that. thank you. maria: why aren't we hearing about this any more. special counsel started after he
this guy was making 16 $5,000 a was fired, he leaked pieces of these so we need to figure out year, one of the higher-paid all of his brothers and his wife exactly what is it that he leak ed. were making high salaries as who did he give these memos to well, and you don't hear what and was it just the friend that happened. what do you have for us? leaked them to the new york >> well it's a complicated times or were there others? i believe there were others. story it's a difficult story you're one of the few places i think that these comey memos that have really been following it carefully and there's a lot were actually given to several of shade, there's a lot of mystery around it like the people. president tweeted last week who it contained classified is this mystery man from information, the irony is the pakistan. we know the ig said he had the very thing that mr. comey clear ed mrs. clinton of. keys to the kingdom and he maria: real quick we'll take a traveled in pakistan with an actual armed escort we know he break right here but with all of claimed to have the power to change the president and we know what you're saying whether it's he claims that of course, and we no official intelligence, the know that debbie wasserman president pushing to find out schultz is terrified of the truth, no obstruction of justice, are these reasons to something that he has. she's been tying up the laptop that has her user name that had shutdown this robert mueller special counsel probe? a passwords to for months and >> well look, i in the legal limbo and the republicans have been really hesitant to go beginning, i actually supported after this the president last week gave them a push to say special counsel because i figure this out. thought okay, mr. mueller will maria: i don't understand why the republicans are so hesitant. come in, long time fbi guy, he >> i don't either because it's will quickly see that there's no nothing we did. it's there's and this guy had evidence of collusion which access to everything and he had been fired by a couple of because we had not seen any just members of congress from
like i said we've not seen any intelligence product that shows misbehavior and put his whole there was any collusion between family in there and again they the trump campaign and the understood the system where most russians, but that he would members of congress have no clue what's on their system and i'm quickly go after the felony that sure every single thing they wanted they got and everything occurred when general flynn was that the pakistan wanted is talking to the russian ambassador and all of that probably the most unsafe country information was leaked out which in the world basically wanted is a major felony at the highest our intelligence and i'm sure they got it through the dnc. level so i thought great we'll have a special counsel, they'll maria: well they arrested him while he was fleeing the country close those leaks and we'll figure out who that was. >> for bank fraud that's what well that never happened it appears like this was clearly they're holding him on and it seems like a bookmark here. what started as a counter there's definitely something intelligence investigation into the trump beyond bank fraud the fbi is campaign. they drilled a bunch of dry interested in but they're not doing the interviews, they pes holes never found any collusion, they moved to obstruction, renot executing the search they've got a special counsel warrants, for example, after the and now, god knows where this is going to go but i think the democratic caucuses server was american people are getting sick and tired of it. hacked or was leaked, this is a maria: well they did manage to piece of evidence that physically disappeared. raid michael cohen's office and home and hotel room let's not it was removed and somebody forget. basically stole it no search stay with us we've got more to warrant was ever executed and talk about and i want to get your reaction to this next story this is what the republicans have been doing this is what the same people who helped fund speaker ryan has been doing. that selacious and unverified he says hey guys this is just a trump dossier now have some new theft investigation it's way bigger than a theft targets in their sights. the democratic national investigation. he has the access to the very
committee filing a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the trump intimate e-mails and communications of the entire campaign, against russia, almost the entire democratic wikileaks and others. caucus and he appears to be a they're alleging it was a bad player. maria: there was also some conspiracy to keep hillary clinton from winning the election yes that's what they're speculation edit could have been charging follow me on twitter at ties to terrorist groups, muslim maria bartiromo at sunday futures, let us know what you'd like to hear, devon nunes brotherhood, not bank fraud. you say that this is just a continues when we come right back. it took guts to start my business. marker? >> i'm saying, he's a mystery man and not clearly the sponsors here with the pakistani government and to a certain extent he and his family had been fired, maintained access until february after trump had been inaugurated i'm sure they have every single thing that they could possibly want to get secret documents, dnc documents what have you, and i think it's a scandal of major major consequences. maria: i think you're right because i just don't understand why then the dnc got hacked, christopher, they wouldn't want the fbi to investigate it. show the servers to the u.s. government so that the u.s. government can investigate this. no they hired a private company to actually investigate and lock at those servers. >> this was about bernie sanders i think they basically tipped the scale against bernie
sanders and i think they were afraid of what they would find relative to bernie sanders internal democratic politics as opposed to national security. maria: so is it likely that we're going to be hearing a lot more about this if the democrats push on this lawsuit? >> they might have just made a serious error here because just as you said they didn't want the but as it grew bigger and bigger, fbi involved. they didn't want the government it took a whole lot more. looking moo these servers, there that's why i switched to the spark cash card was a lot of shady business, from capital one. debbie wasserman schultz had to with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy. step down after it was exposed they said it was because the election was too important everything. that's why they didn't want to give access that's obviously ridiculous and not true and now if they push on this and the and that 2% cash back adds up president gets to do discovery to thousands of dollars each year... and return on them we'll learn a whole lot more. so i can keep growing my business in big leaps! maria: incredible real quick on the pompeo hearing tomorrow. i think he's not going to make it through the committee but what's in your wallet? they certainly should do everything they can to get him the 50 votes. maria: but you don't think -- >> i think don't think they where we're changing withs? contemporary make-overs. will get him on the committee. maria: ed rollins christopher then, use the ultimate power handshake, the upper hander bedford, thank you for joining us a lot going on. with a double palm grab. it is incredible that'll do it who has the upper hand now? start winning today. for us sunday morning futures

ibrance plus letrozole this must be a joke. was significantly more effective we know who colluded with at delaying disease progression russians. versus letrozole. they don't want to admit that patients taking ibrance they colluded with russians, but can develop low white blood cell counts, which may cause serious infections they hired fusion gps, they that can lead to death. hired a law firm that hired before taking ibrance, tell your doctor if you have fever, fusion gps that hired a british chills, or other signs of infection, spy that colluded with russians liver or kidney problems, are pregnant, so i don't understand why they breastfeeding, or plan to become pregnant. didn't just open up a lawsuit common side effects include against themselves they should low red blood cell name themselves so they can get and low platelet counts, to the bottom of what do they infections, tiredness, nausea, have on their servers, why sore mouth, abnormalities didn't they give those servers in liver blood tests, to the fbi. diarrhea, hair thinning or loss, this is nothing more, nothing vomiting, rash, and loss of appetite. less than a continuation of alice calls it her new normal fundraising off of this scandal. because a lot has changed, this is made to play to the far but a lot hasn't. left in this country, so that ask your doctor about ibrance. the far left will continue to the #1 prescribed fda-approved right check because they don't believe that president trump won oral combination treatment the election fair and square. for hr+/her2- mbc. because the media, most of the media in this country has continued this narrative there was collusion, there was obstruction that trump was somehow involved with putin and putin helped to steal this election. we've now looked at all of this and none of that is true, but
the democrats need a way to keep their base motivated to turn out in november and they need a way to continue to raise money and they're raising millions and millions and millions of dollars to target republicans over this russia fiasco. maria: it's incredible. >> yet the only place where there's a russia fiasco is with them. maria: so this is a fundraising exercise. why doesn't the rnc come back and say we're suing you for the same exact reason given the fact >> lou: good evening, everybody. that we know the bias at the top our top stories tonight. of the fbi, we know they would evidence against obama and have already been felonies, we clenton cronies continues to know about the leaking and the fact that the fbi, the doj, and mount but the attorney general jeff sessions and deputy perhaps the cia were all in it attorney general rod rosenstein are aligned with the deep state to try to get hillary to win and keep donald trump from winning. it's the same thing, once again, and stone walling congress's they're pushing on you what they're doing isn't that right? constitutional demands. >> that's right. well i always like to say whatever the left accuses you of a dozen republican law makers doing, they're doing themselves. maria: by the way what about filed against the clenton. those servers? and law makers want the justice mr. chairman what about those servers? >> i don't know about the department and fbi to open
servers. maria: when the democratic national committee got hacked you would think that the dnc criminal wants that might and the power and the strength of the u.s. government behind them to find out who hacked, how come all these e-mails are out in the public's view and yet they didn't do that at all and give the server to the fbi. they hired a private company to look at their servers. >> exactly. so the obvious question here is is that once you were notified by the fbi that maybe somebody had hacked into your system, for sure once those e-mails became public and they became public i think in july, mid-july, you'd think you would immediately call the fbi into try to figure out and get to the bottom of what had happened. maria: yeah. >> but that didn't happen. there must be a reason why they didn't want the fbi to come in. i think we probably know the reason why there's probably a lot of bad things that were on that system. maria: real quick mr. chairman let me switch gears tomorrow we've got the vote from the
senate committee on mr. pompeo in terms of becoming the new secretary of state. your thoughts on what we'll see tomorrow out of this vote for mr. pompeo. >> well, mr. pompeo should have been confirmed weeks ago. this is really the number three person in our government. we have high level negotiations going on with north korea, with the north koreans now and south koreans trying to solve that long-standing conflict. mr. pompeo was already confirmed as the director of the fbi. he's a good man. he knows what he's doing. the president trusts him this is about our nation's national security and the united states senate should stop playing politics with our national security, so a president has a right to hire whoever he wants, especially as it relates to someone in national security. we should not let domestic politics get involved in this decision and the senate should do its job and do it quickly. maria: we'll see what happens tomorrow then mr. chairman good to see you thanks for joining us

maria: welcome back. president trump expressing his thanks to san diego county after the board of supervisors voted to support the federal lawsuit against california sanctuary policies. the 3:1 vote last week is rejecting a state law that limits local police collaboration with federal immigration officials. joining me right now is the chairman of that board, kristin gaspar. good to see you thanks for joining us. >> thank you. maria: why are you pushing back? >> oh, boy, we have a governor whose rolling out the welcome matt for ms13 gang members in
the state of california. we have a governor who consistently lets criminals walk out on our streets and pardons others. all packaged in the interest of neighborhood and school safety but in san diego we're saying enough is enough to governor brown and his unsafe policies including sb54. maria: so what has been the impact of these open door policies? i'm scratching my head. i don't understand what the pushback to federal law really is. any country wants to have borders, and immigration, legal immigration should be front and center as opposed to illegal immigration so i don't understand why the pushback and tell us what the impact of it has been, these open borders from your standpoint. >> sure, we're left in san diego wondering where has all the common sense gone. since january alone we're talking about 284 criminals now walking our streets. in the state of california,
since this policy was passed, 142 gang members released back into sanctuary states. california took the brunt of it with nearly 90 criminal gang members released back into california. these are the numbers, people need to understand the facts . this is one to three people released each and every day in san diego, not tracked at all just back out into our community maria: so you think this is really ideology this resist movement this has nothing to do with common sense just let's pushback on anything president trump says or does. >> if people have an interest in public safety, i don't know how you argue it. it's important to know that you hear a lot about well we can't have people who are in our country illegally not reporting crimes, being fearful of contacting our deputies. it's important to understand this was never the case. when our deputies went out and responded calls by law enforcement they were never even asking about citizenship status,
so this argument does not holdup at all. maria: so where does this go now do you think? you're pushing back. there are a lot of people including your governor who says no, we are not going to tell law enforcement when we know illegal s are here and when i.c.e. is out after them so where do you think this goes from here? >> well there's a movement and you can see it up and down the state of california and it's really important because each and every community needs to tell the narrative of the direct impact of sb54 and the next steps are in the hands of the courts but we can file briefs. we can share that narrative and our briefs that we're filing with the courts tells our individual stories and our communities so it's incredibly important that this movement continue. maria: we'll be watching kristin great to have you on the program thanks for weighing in this morning. we certainly will be watching your county. 11 congressional republicans are demanding attorney general jeff sessions open criminal

claiming potential violations on a range of topics including a handling of the clinton e-mail probe, and the uranium one controversy. i'm joined by one of those lawmakers behind the letter to sessions, congressman ron desantis is a member of the house oversight and judiciary committees and also a member of the house subcommittee on national security congressman good to have you on the program thanks for joining us. >> good morning. maria: tell me why you wrote the letter. well look we have a special counsel going on looking into trump campaign collusion there's been no evidence of that but yet in the course of us conducting oversight we've had a lot of evidence that statutes have been violated. andrew mccabe for example, i was pleased that after we've referred mccabe that the inspector general the next day followed through and formerly referred him for lying to the fbi. you look at somebody like james comey, he testified before us in congress that he did not decide to exonerate hillary until after her interview and yet subsequent efforts of oversight unearthed a
memo that he wrote two months before he interviewed hillary that was an exoneration memo, and then i think with this michael cohen raid supposedly about the sbc violation it made a lot of us question okay hillary clinton's campaign they paid a law firm who then laundered the money to fusion gps who then paid a foreign national christopher steele who then colluded with russians to create this anti-trump dossier and yet there was never any sbc case that i'm aware of that was open so does the law apply equally to everybody or is it just anyone whose associated with trump gets nailed and anybody else in high positions of authority, you know, they get a pass. maria: well it seems so extraordinary, congressman, i mean everything you've just lined up everything we just spoke to, devon nunes about the fact that there was no official intelligence whatsoever used to launch an investigation into trump. i don't understand how robert mueller is not looking at any of this. i mean, they authorized a raid
of michael cohen's home, office and hotel room and yet no interviews, no examining what has taken place with regards to the bias at the fbi and the hillary clinton e-mail investigation. could that be possible that robert mueller is not is just going to ignore all of this? >> yeah, i think that's what he's doing. look you look at who he hired he hand picked a lot of people who could be in the general counsel 's office at the democratic national committee. that's just what he did. i think that was a huge mistake. i think its hurt the credibility of his investigation but here we are, maria. the whole investigation on collusion was not based on intelligence. the main fisa application was based on opposition research. to this day there's not evidence of any type of conspiracy between anyone on trump's campaign and the russian government so i'm glad he brought mayor guiliani on and i think we do need to negotiate an end to this.
i don't think the president should fire mueller because i think it would cause a lot of problems politically but this needs to come to an end. it's hurting the country at this point and let's move forward and hold the people accountable throughout this whole mess who actually did violate law. maria: so what are you going to do? have you heard back from jeff sessions? how are you going to prove to the american people that in fact we do have a fair and just judicial system? because right now it looks like it's just it's really unfair depending on who you are just as you just noted. >> exactly, and so ultimately you need the department of justice to follow the lead of what we're laying out. we're a legislative body we don't have the authority to initiate criminal prosecutions but i will say mccabe has been referred not only by us but by the ig. the ig investigation into comey is just the beginning. i don't think they will be able to say he maliciously leaked two memos, two of which were classified and we'll just let
that go. at this point that's going to see through and that should be a criminal referral and then you also have to do oversight over when he met with president-elect trump about this dossier. clapper and him had a conservation. they meet, comey writes in his notes they need a news hook to be able to put it out so what did comey do? by briefing trump he gave cnn the news hook and they put it out a couple days later that whole thing stinks. he was not honest with trump about the dossier. he didn't tell him that hillary clinton's campaign funded it and he didn't go into all of the other thins the dossier was alleging he just focused on the one selacious sex thing which is totally unsubstantiated. man it seems like he had it out for donald trump from day one. maria: it really does seem that way and i wonder if comey is going to be able to see those servers that the fbi never got to see from the dnc. >> he didn't have much of an interest in getting those server s did he maria? really no interest in that he
wanted to get into michael cohen 's office but no interest in those servers. maria: this is so extraordinary congressman. real quick north korean leaders says we no longer need nuclear and missile tests. wow if north korea is giving up its nuclear capability this is also an extraordinary move and obviously we have to look at the president's treatment of north korea and say what an incredible job he did if this is true. do you leave this? >> donald trump has shaken this up. he has kim jong-un on the defensive. i think that's why you're seeing this. i still think we're a long way from actually getting there, but man, we have a pathway now because this president is the first president in a generation to actually take this problem on head on and say i'm not just going to put my head in the sand and let the problem get worse, so boy if we could get that done that would be one of the best achievements i think since ronald regan helped end the cold war. maria: it's just absolutely incredible congressman good to see you sir thank you. thank you. maria: we'll see you soon
