5:03 am
you're watching a fox business network. let's get to edward lawrence from the latest from washington. reporter: president donald trump facing a lawsuit now from protesters who were involved in being removed from the park in the lawsuit filed by the aclu and the black lives matter movement claiming the president made unprovoked attack to enable a photo up and also named attorney general william barr, right now in the same park in lafayette park is a church visual going on, the protesters are taken that park again and they are putting chalk on the sidewalk in the view of the white house in favor of black lives matter in a number of the messages there, at least one person now in the famous picture at the st. john's principal church holding the bible is apologizing. lindsey graham says he supports
5:04 am
general mark miley's apology, this is the president's response to that and interview on fox news channel. >> i think it's a b beautiful>> picture. i think christians think it is a beautiful picture. >> why do you think your hearing from general millie, secretary of defense as per and that why you think you are what do you think it's significant. >> no i don't think so, if that's the way they feel i's thk that is fine, i have good relationships with the military, i rebuilt our military, i spent two and half trillion dollars, nobody else did. reporter: and the president saying he has no problem with it, white h house lawyers trying to stop the book publishing by former national security intelligence john bolton in an opinion article in the wall street journal from bolton's lawyer said the book went through the clearance process of multiple pre-rights and now he believes that the white house is
5:05 am
using national security as an excuse to censor bolton, the white house lawyers believe the book still ca contains classifid information in the book claims sutline of the ukraine types transgressions and hand others say bolton and others raise alarms related to those transgressions. the book goes on sale on januar. it is interesting how much information comes out right before book is published. liz: thank you so much. s let's get to the story, judges on a d.c. appeals court today seem pretty skeptical of arguments that they should force a federal judge to dismiss the case against president trump former national security adviso, michael flynn asks fox by the department of justice this after flynn's lawyer said the case was concocted and slammed government misconduct against michael flynn p watch this. >> to make us go through that process when thewh ultimate rest
5:06 am
has to be the grant of the motion to dismiss. the government is just wasting resources out the wall zoo pursuing this. and the toll is taken on the defendant. liz: remember this case involves the fbi saying there is nothing there, no derogatory evidence against michael flynn as of early june or 2017 and also allegations that the fbi tried to corner michael flynn in a perjury trap. here's what's going on, emmett sullivan scheduled a july 16. next tuesday to hear from both sides, the judge could decide and motion to dismiss by the end of july which could possibly have a new round of appeals. let's welcome to the show in a fox business exclusive justice department woman kerri kupec, your thoughts on this case and what's happening now. >> the arguments are pretty interesting, they lasted two hours, the attorney general
5:07 am
passed the top litigator, jeff wall to argue the case is morning and liz, the bottom line for the justice department is we have the discretion, the authority as part of the executive branch whether we bring a case or forwarded, here are based on what we now know, we have decided it would not be the right thing to do toha move forward with this case and that was a point that you heard repeatedly r this morning. >> kerri, what is the reason for the judge to keep litigating the case because the judge said this is gross misconduct by the justice department and this is only that flynn is getting soft treatment from the d.o.j. and needs alia president trump, what's a reaction there? >> i don't think anyone came too much surprise and considering that he made his use public before judge sullivan decided to bring him in and argue against
5:08 am
the department. andy wrote an op-ed for the washington post into early may expressing his views on the flynn case in the very next day judge silva and appointed him as an outside counsel to argue against that. so no real surprises there as far as what judge thinks or thought in the past and some of the language i found vertically ironic, he used the phrasela highly irregular, he found the conduct in this case by the government highly irregular. i would say i agree on that point in a little bit of a different way, it is highly irregular for a judge to operate as a prosecutor which is happening in the state. it is highly irregular for thehe judge not to grant the department motion to dismiss after a u.s. attorney who spends ten years as a career prosecutor, ten years and fbi reprimanded to the attorney dneral what we now know he does
5:09 am
not believe that anyone over 93 u.s. attorneys in our country would've brought this case. and it's highly irregular to the fbi to spy on american presidential campaign and after closing anft investigation an american citizen decide in an attempt to get them to lie to inactivity an investigation that was already closed. we took quite some time on the highly irregular activity that is accrued in this case from day one. liz: what happened today, judge sullivan has been accused of bias against michael flynn saying he committed treason working for the country of turkey, the federal appeals court judges brought up race, he tried to equate whether dropping the case against flynn is the same as a prosecutor dropping a case against the white police officer, the white police officer should not have to
5:10 am
answer for using excessive force on a black defendant, what is your reaction when you heard that. >> of courts the judge was getting into the heart of the discretion aspect that we as the prosecutors in this case have, jeff wall, the department justice attorney, i thought he made a very important point where v he said it is not just harm to the defendant, it is not just harm to the human being mike flynn at the center of this case that is occurring but it's harm to the way that separation of power in the way our government and judge sullivan could grant our motion to dismiss in this case and by granting that motion, does not mean he agrees with us, it does not mean he is expressing his own opinion, it does not mean he thinks is the right thing to do, he would simply be acknowledging our authority as a prosecutor in the executive branch in this nrticular case because it's our authority to bring cases were dropped cases, not that of the
5:11 am
judiciary. liz: i hear what you're saying is about the constitutional separation of power. i just want to get in to see what is set aside in these discussions on part of the judges and the fbi declassified fbi documents show that the fbi james comey did not have a case against flynn as of late 2016 in the fbi case agent was going to drop it because he did not have derogatory information about the trump russia probe and then peter strzok and others conspired to try to catch flynn in a perjury trap and when flynn was not going to get a g memorandum morning, they talked about that and they basically talked about essentially -- flynn did not have a lawyer present in the fbi interview, there was a lot of irregularities in kerri, final words, joe biden, chief of staff unmask the name of flynn and then got to flynn's phone call with the russian ambassador leaked to the washington post
5:12 am
likely by for me james clapper told the washington post reporter take the kill shot on flynn, to your report about irregularity, that seems like a long laundry list, yourur reaction? >> there is a long laundry list, it would be wonderful obviously to instruct the lower court to grant motion to dismiss but if they go forward or allow judge so livid to hold the hearing in july, we hope the judge to live in will do the right thing and recognize our authority as a coequal branch of government and grant a request to drop the case. liz: kerri kupec, thank you for joining us come back soon. >> thank you probably mia coming up seattle leadership is in disarray, the police chief and mayor are at odds over demonstrators taking control over the seattle city loss with the police precinct in it. the mayor is downplaying this calling it just a block party in

5:17 am
leadership in the mayor downplaying protesters seizing control of city blocks calling it just a block party the summer of love, local reports coming in at seattle police saying demonstrators threw rocks and improvised explosives at police officer's and that 25 cops have been injured, 25 injured since the protest began. police still cannot gain full access to the police station, watch the seattle mayor here and watch the governor of washington state who says he has not heard about what is going on, watch this. >> i know it'll shock you that the president is not getting accurate or truthful picture. we have four blocks in seattle that you saw pictures of that is more like a block party atmosphere, not an armed takeover. we have block parties and the like in this part of seattle and it is known for that.
5:18 am
>> the fact that protesters have taken that over and not a lot of people will come to it freely, what you're hearing -- >> that is news to me i'll have to reserve any comment, i have not heard anything about that for many credible source. liz: watch seattle chief of police and the head of seattle union tell a different story. >> you should know, leaving the precinct was not my decision, we thought for days to protect it, asked you to stand on the line day in and day out to be pulled did with projectiles, to be screamed at, threatened in some cases hurt, ultimately the city had other plans for the building and we wanted to severe public pressure. i am angry about how this all came about. >> if they were to take a
5:19 am
precinct, removing the 911 call center won't allow police service in the city, so where is the reasonableness, where is the safety of the reasonable community of the city of seattle, to me that is absolutely appalling. >> we welcome back to the show, were delighted to have back on alveda king, it is great to see you doctor king, you are the niece of martin luther king. the fire department was called in to stop a potential burning down of the police precinct, that would've started possible buyers up and down the city block, your reaction to all of this. >> i am so concerned for the mayor who seems to be suffering from the terrible affliction of nostalgia and denial. in other words, maybe when she was going to a block party was fun. and maybe the free loud movement was different then. but she is in the middle of a
5:20 am
pandemic situation with covid-19 still existing and now the alliance and everything. we have accurate reports from people who live in seattle who arare concerned and i'm surprisd government hasn't heard about this and he says is not reliable information. and so block parties, no, it's the same as a sanctuary city where lawless people go in anarchist and everything to find protection and if there are no police there then they have free reign to regroup and go back and do it again. so free love, what kind of free love when avengers and those four blocks and the business owners and people who have gone nearby said they are not safe, she is in terrible denial in trying to sell that to the nation, she is either totally unaware or not being honest, one
5:21 am
of the other. liz: doctor king you just spoke with such honesty, seattle ranks in the top 20 were cities for crime out of 115 cities, that's of 2018. portland, oregon had a similar disturbance and said it's a criminal civil upset in portland, they shut it down with police action. is it your concern that when these things get out of hand that it can escalate, they wanted to burn down the police precinct and the 25 cops were injured. your final word on this. >> the families and children and communities in the churches and the people in the area are in danger and the mayor is dreaming about walk parties, that is unfortunate she is in deep denial. i think it is unfortunate. liz: doctor king, thank you so much for joining us come back soon we love having you on.

bottom of the hour. as more and more documents are declassified, there is growing hidoubt in washington over the reasons why the fbi, trump russia colusa probe was launched to begin with. it is not taken serious hits to its credibility. watch iowa senator chuck grassley on this, the question is given the new details, there is then ground for why the fbi officials launched it, were they ready to launch because they hated trump? >> he also held a hearing on foreign agents registration act oversight submitted countless oversight for the federal agencies in the counsel's office and reviewed r simplified classified documents produced by the justice department, fbi and intelligence community. we did not find a single shred of evidence.ot we found a lot of evidence that
5:27 am
there were problems with the way that the fbi conducted its investigation and that is based on roughly four years of work. liz: let's welcome republican congressman ben klein of virginia. congressman sits on house judiciary, your reaction, great to have you on, your reaction to what you just heard, not a shred of evidence. >> it confirms what w we've knon for many, many months that the steele dossier was full of holes, the horowitz report confirmed that the process wasma flawed, we need to fix it, thankfully, senator lindsey graham is taking action and we are seeing nothing out of nancy pelosi's house representatives or jury now there's judiciary committee. liz: congressman let's explain what senator grassley just talked about, the foreigne registration act, the document that the fbi used to justify
5:28 am
directrump russia colusa probe s off like this, former fbi official peter strzok who was fired for anti-trump messages signed off on an investigation into the theory that someone on trump team was breaking the law, the foreign agents registration act by not registering with the u.s. government that they were working for a foreign f country. that was only based on a low level trump campaign advisor george papadopoulos who suggested to an australian diplomat over drinks in a london bar that the trump team had received some kind of suggestion of help from russia about releasing information damaging to hillaryry clinton. was thato enough evidence to say george papadopoulos was a russia agent or working for russia, suggestion of a suggestion? no evidence cited, your reacti reaction. >> not even close, the threshold was not even insight much less met to proceed with this investigation. in all the years and years that
5:29 am
resulted running down the false rumors proving the fee steele dossier had very little if any fax to it making sure that the truth came out, that has been a process as finally came out and that will result in action and to make sure that this process if it is reformed, in these types of accidents never happen again, these types of abuses iver happen. liz: let's turn to this, the fbi knew in early 2017, they did not have evidence of trump russia collusion but special counsel robert mueller was appointed anyway. this comes from the declassified document in the obama administration intelligence community assessment. saying there was littlenc, collaboration, not enough
5:30 am
cooperation actually that the british spy christopher steele dossier work opposition research paperwork by the democrats, it was on cooperated by early 2017, now this, i want your reaction to this, the d.o.j. inspector general found that former top fbi officialal and remicade push to include steals reporting into the ica arguing that obama had requested everything that you have relevant to this topic a russian influence. how much was obama involved in this? >> we don't know at this point, but we do know that when mccabe and others wanted to close this upon the transition from the obama administration to the trump administration that we had jim comey himself say that they needed to keep it going and that they needed to have the interview with carter page during the transition in the hopes of catching him and hopefully getting him to lie to investigators without an

attorney present and we see the result, we have a judge now who is looking for sentence in the form from another judge evenin though he has stated in previous rulings that prosecutors have absolute discretion over their cases, he does not want to give prosecutors discretion to dismiss the charge against michael flynn at this point. liz: that's the michael flynn case, the steele dossier opposition research, the d.o.j. inspector general said it had disinformation in it, thank you so much congressman for joining us, we will be back after the break, stay with us we have a big show coming up. ♪ ♪

5:36 am
convinced the u.s. military would step in if president trump loses, claiming president trump will leave the white house, this triggered a media echo chamber wa people agreeing with joe biden on this. watch. >> republicans on capitol hill do not want to stand between donald trump and the election that he tries to steal it. i think joe biden is exactly right i think former vice president biden is exactly correct, i believe the military generals and others will step up and make sure there is a peaceful transition to follow. liz: let's welcome former louisiana governor back to the show, great to have you on governor. your reaction to what you just heard? >> this is incredibly hypocritical and ridiculous pedro member will happen four years ago, the same ridiculous assertions that president trump
5:37 am
would not accept the outcome of the election, president trump is not planning on staying at the white house after losing the election, he's planing on beating joe biden, four years ago, hillary clinton could not stop the factt that american voters selected donald trump over her, she blamed everybody but herself, she blamed the voters, she blamed everybody, then after that, look at the obama administration date, the contradicting about peaceful transfer of power and they manipulated our intelligence agencies to try to underminece trump's office spreading all kinds of fabricated stories i know you covered on the top half of your show, it's a left theig have problems with accepting the actual verdict of the american numbers, not the white, not donald trump, but trying to undermine his legitimacy, it did not work then and is not going to work now in the voters in the media. liz: governor to what you decide, joe biden is also raising eyebrows with these soundbites as well.

justst listen. >> even doctor king's assassination did not have the worldwide impact that george floyd's did. the rapidly rising -- none of her employees were home and spreading anything, people will not come in. what enables them -- they're not going to come in. what you can do in your writing your terms, you can begin to be able to help in terms of how you have a business or you can go online and say send me your prescription, i haven't filled, this is how i'll do it. i'm beginning to bore my own talk here. it is not fair, the constitution
5:39 am
said all men and women who were created equal. liz: first of all, it's a declaration of independence that says that, not the constitution. and the idea for filling drug prescriptions on the internet is not for multibillion-dollar industries, what was your reaction to what biden said that the floyd killing has a bigger global impact than the assassination of martin luther king, your thoughts? >> george floyd's death was a tragedy, that is a cry out for justice. the way that doctor martin luther king lived his life was a legacy that has transformed the world, not just here in america but his example of fighting and praying in his peaceful acts of civil disobedience are equal opportunity and justice and for our society, he is a prey you compile on, many women and people of faith to join in on the march for justice. not only people here in america for decades to make transformational changes in our
5:40 am
society, he is recognized that all over the world forre his stance and his demonstration how nonviolent demonstration, peaceful demonstration, peaceful act of civil disobedience can transform society, we are not perfect but we have a huge debt of gratitude, doctor martin luther king and his legacy to continue to strive for the more just society. again george floyd's death is a tragedy and demandsus justice, d not sure why he felt the need to improve the two, one thing that he said, he is beginning to bore himself, to his numbers actually went up and the less he talked and thus he showed they were good people in his thoughts and radical policy, i really do he consider hiding in the basement stay away from the cameras. liz: is always great to have you on. come back soon. >> thank you very much for having me. liz: still ahead as more and more documents are declassified, radio silence and democrats from the media, growing number of

5:46 am
trump was a russian asset on the media. let's welcome back to the show media reporter joe concha, your reaction to this. >> that is funny because i looked at some research done on adam schiff and the number of interviews he did talking about exactly what you just described that the president is a russian asset that his campaign associates had colluded withh russian officials, you do know how many times he was interviewed just on tv, 419. times. between january 2017 and june of 2019, that is a must 50 hours, you will have to watch titanic nearly 17 times to get to 50 hours of adam schiff and the only topic was donald trump's guilty and till proven innocent, he is a russian asset and he should be impeached and removed from office, now you will find birdie made off in front of a camera before you find adam schiff being asked about all the allegations that he has been exonerated by robert mueller
5:47 am
without unlimited resources and a to have your investigation. liz: joe, when you think about the radio silence of democrats from the media about all ofn this, seems like they're fearful of republicans investigating and finding out abuses of power under the obama administration. ond by the way now that shift is dialing back, i want to take you to this, shift went on the floor of the house and basically cited the steele dossier as evidence, now we know the russian disinformation information and he ran from the dossier as if it was fact, let's watch this. >> is about as clear of evidence that you can find of intent by ehe campaign to collude with the russians. >> he may be the first president to face the real prospect of jail time. >> according to christopher steele of former british intelligence officer who is
5:48 am
reportedly held in high regard by u.s. intelligence, russian sources tell him that page has also had a secret meeting with the ceo of the russian gas giant. according to steeles russian sources, the campaign is offered documents damaging to hillary ct clinton. which the russians would publish through an outlet that gives them deniability like wikileaks. liz: the cia told the fbi that the steele dossier wasnt internt rumor, and also steele's own sources say it's full of speculation and hearsay take it with a grain of salt and talk over beers. he's reading it like it's an's indictment. >> we never should've called it the dossier, sounds bond and more important than it really is, if you remember in 2016 the dossier t was pitched to every publication whether you're targeting new york times, the news organizations, broadcast and also buzz feed, buzzfeed is
5:49 am

department advisor christian whiton, what is your reaction to that first of all. >> it is completely leader chris, let's remember nancy pelosi was encouraging tourism, come to san francisco and chinatown as a pandemic was breaking out and is the same time trump was shutting down flights from china nancy pelosi was promoting tourism in her district. this is the democrats once again engaging in race hustling, if you look at where the vulnerable communities lack american to have higher susceptibility to this because they are more likely to have conditions like diabetes, be a beast and otherit health conditions, they are located primarily or concentrated somewhat in cities that have been run by the democrat since the 19th century, what donald trump has done for black americans has increased their economic situation, we have black unemployment below -- when it

there is not that much evidence of a second wave, if you look at arizona, a lot of numbers come from an indian reservation, the vulnerable population with diabetes and obesity, california and arizona have large numbers of people coming from mexico or u.s. citizens and green card holders because the numbers in mexico are going out, florida people want to jump on florida because they reopened early, the positive cases, is up 28% but testing over the same. over the last two weeks is up 37%, the trend is going in the right direction and if you step back nationally and look at the seven day average, were below 800 and that is only about a third of the peak of the crisis. things are trending in the right direction. >> i'm interested in your thoughts, what about the protests, and did that put people at risk for possibly transmitting these diseases for the spikes that we are seeing. >> that's a question that's yet to be answered. if for more than two weeks away from when they started in two
