she does not see anything weird that could remit this man to president obama or any information on that. she said the agents begged her not to call the police but she told them they didn't care about her situation, not getting paid, why should she care about theirs. she said they never wanted this to be public and it has "damaged her life." traits? >>trace: it will continue, and now, live from washington. thank you. there is word the united states and china may have reached an agreement to end a growing diplomatic crisis. and it's to do with a blind activist who escaped in the middle of the night after climbing over a wall in his property spending the last seven years in prison or under guard for speak out about china's repressive policy. the one child limit, the forced abortions and sterilization. this crisis unfolded in the
12:05 pm
middle of secretary of state, hillary clinton's visit to the country. now, secretary of state, hillary clinton says china has agreed to let the blind activist, his wife and two kids, travel to the united states for a "university fellowship." and now, live from washington, mike, what do we know of where chen guangcheng could end up and when he could get here? >>guest: we know new york university has extended an offer to him either in new york city or at a global location to work with the school of law. after not being able to see chen guangcheng in the hospital for a day the embassy staff and doctors were able to meet with him for 45 minutes. secretary of state, hillary clinton says the chinese are allowing him to pursue studies in the united states. >> over the course of the day, progress has been made to help him have the future that he wants. and we will be staying in touch
12:06 pm
with him as this process moves forward. >>reporter: he said his care if the beijing so far has been excellent and he has been well treated not hospital and american doctors agree. trace? >>trace: in fact, chen has said a lot about this? >>reporter: yes, upsetting the chinese government and probably added pressure on the united states officials and the most unusual moment was probably talking by cell phone from his hospital bed to a congressional hearing. >> and we have installed seven video cameras, and even, with electric fence. >>reporter: officials will stay on top of the case and it will be worth noting if the tone of the chinese leaders changed after secretary clinton leaves. >>trace: thank you, mike, from washington, dc. and now we will bring in chris wallace anchor of "fox news
12:07 pm
sunday." chris, we talk a lot about the unknowns in political campaigns and a week ago, i don't think we knew the name chen guangcheng and now, this is huge. and they are saying this is the big of the showdown between the united states and china since back in 2001 when they captured that reconnaissance plane. is it your sense, chris, the president knew this, or was he surprised how big this mushroomed? >>chris: we do not have any sense what the president specifically knew but, clearly, the administration and particularly the united states embassy in beijing seems to have been somewhat surprised by it and, obviously, from their point, difficult, sensitive coincidence of this happening just as clinton and treasury secretary geithner everyone arriving in beijing. the caveat that mike raised at the end of the piece was appropriate. all the chinese foreign ministry said is he can apply like any
12:08 pm
other citizen for a travel permit to study abroad. now, when they say it is like any other citizen, does that mean it will take two weeks to get the permit? two years? obviously, when secretary clinton came out today she seemed to think there was an understanding with the chinese foreign ministry but when she gets in the plane and leaves will the chinese government feel the heat is off and they do not have to move so fast? >>trace: you would think this would give the chinese a way out, right, save face by saying, everyone is able to go to the country and study and maybe this is their way? but they are not happy one way or the other the chinese made it clear they are very unhappy about the way the united states handled this. >>chris: that is right they see it as an interference with one of their citizens and internal affairs. but if the chinese want chen and they have left dissidents leave because it is easetory have them out of the country than inside,
12:09 pm
if they want to allow him to leave, it is a face saving device but if they decide for whatever reason and there have been indications of the split between the security side of the chinese government and the diplomatic side, if the security side, the hard-liners prevail, maybe they will not let him out. >>trace: but it is a delicate diplomatic dance right now, isn't it? you have things going on in north korea, iran and syria and it makes this diplomatic schedule a little bit tenuous. >>chris: that is why it is sensitive for the united states. yes, we want to protect chen but we have a lot of very vital interests which is why clinton and geithner were there on trade; on chinese currency manipulation; the issues of syria and iran and north korea. to what degree do they want do
12:10 pm
hold that hostage to chen guangcheng is a balancing act. it comes not midst of a presidential campaign and romney saying this was a day of shame for america. so that only adds to the complication. >>trace: chris, thank you. who is on with you on sunday? >>chris: we will talk to rubio and on the kentucky derby weekend, who is the frontrunner to be the running mate for mitt romney and we will talk about foreign affairs, the chen situation, and the politics over the osama bin laden raid and how it was exploited by the obama administration this week. we will talk about the latest unemployment numbers and how he could be able to help romney ticket reach out to, especially, the hispanic voters. >>trace: we will watch, chris wallace, good to see you. the new unemployment numbers are out and they do not look good. next, details behind the weak

>>trace: an interior designer who says he helped funnel hundreds of thousands from a rich donor to the former presidential candidate, john edwards, today said the donor felt used after the john edwards campaign collapsed. the designer told the court a former john edwards aide, andrew young, asked the donor, who was 97 at time if she could donate $40 million to $50 million to an john edwards foundation and suggested she could mortgage her mansion for some of the money. the designer said john edwards apologized to the donor and said he didn't know how much money young had asked for. the designer also claimed that andrew young said the massive request was john edwards' idea and the design are said he believed andrew young. of course the prosecution claimed that john edwards used money from rich donors to hide his affair from his dying wife and from the voters and john
12:22 pm
edwards particulars say the former presidential candidate did not know about the money and claimed andrew young used the money to build his dream home. jonathan with the news like in north carolina. another aide described a heated phone call with john edwards. what exactly was that about? >>reporter: that is right, he was an outside consultant, and he started noticing other staff were talking about all of the travel that john edwards was making with rielle hunter and he advised the candidate to stop traveling with her. and the candidate followed his advise for a while and after a brief high -- time was seen traveling with her and he said, john, what the [blank] are you doing leader, and he said back off, i don't need a babe sitters you should go [blank] yourself. >>trace: the defense is objecting to the talk of the
12:23 pm
affair. why? >>reporter: that's because no one is denying that the affair occurred so the press doesn't need to prove that it happened. they are listening to the witnesses testifying about details and the defense is saying, judge, we need to move on and start proving the key issue behind this, either way. the main argument is the intent behind that donor money that was used to hide the affair. was it to save the campaign? or just john edwards' family? the prosecution's first witness today was able to speak to that and the interior decorator helped his racial friend funnel hundreds of thousands to andrew young claiming young never told them of the affair or the coverup until just hours before news appeared in the press, and the prosecution asked huffman how she reacted when she found out about the affair. and huffman reasonablied "she thought he should pay for your
12:24 pm
girlfriend yourself." trace? >>trace: thank you, jonathan, outside the courthouse and now our legal panel, former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney. jeffrey, the question in this, is it fair game as he was talking for the prosecution to bring up the affair again and again to prosecute john edwards? >>guest: absolutely. in a murder case the defendant doesn't want the prosecutor to show you the gory pictures of the scene but that is part of the prosecution case and no matter how much the defense wants to stipulate and say, we agree, we don't need to have the testimony, the prosecution has the right to put the testimony forward. >>trace: according to court watchers the "bunny money," the $725,000 for john edwardss personal use and $6 million in political action committee has been amusing. as you listen to the testimony about the money coming in and bunny mellon not know what it
12:25 pm
was used now how much does it hurt or help his cause? >>guest: the issue is did he know it was a campaign coverup or personal? if it is campaign it is illegal. if it is personal, it is not. that is the key issue. i suspect that they will either have experts like federal election commissioners to come forward and testify and if not, at the least, john edwards needs to take the stand because, remember, trace, his mindset and what he was thing and what he knew is key in this case. >>trace: but you go back to the money and now, today, the defense is saying you cannot pin the money on john edwards, we are not saying the money did not come in. we are saying it wasn't used for the purpose, jeffrey, that the prosecution is saying. >>guest: look, when it looks like a duck, it quacks lick a duck, and it w a duck. all the circumstantial, evidence shows intent the anyone can get certified his mind but the evidence they are putting forward, from the minute they put on andrew young, who was his paid political aide, all the
12:26 pm
money want through him. once they put that on, that was the nail in the coffin. the other testimony is merely pallbearers. >>trace: and the interior designer has a heavy southern accent and they said, look, you knew, right, does everyone know the campaign limit was $4,600 and she gave $725,000 and his response was, well, she thought that was a little bit low but the whole point being that, everyone inside the campaign believed this money was being called furniture money but they knew where it was going. >>guest: that could be true but the only issue is whether john edwards now and i disagree with gold it is not the nail in the coffin. john edwards may take the stand and the jury could be convinced if john edwards is able to articulate why he didn't thing the money was being used for campaign donations and it was used for personal use. he was cheating on his wife and he had every reason to use his own money to cover it up.
12:27 pm
so, these are the issues the jury will decide in the case. >> only thing i say to that, john edwards is a gambler, and he was known to put some gambles out there on what he tried and didn't but to he testifies he will lose that gamble. >>trace: everyone will agree that john edwards was a very good trial attorney, jeffrey and john, gentleman, thank you both. and to show you the defense secretary panetta is now talking to troops at ft. for the bennin, georgia, the defense secretary speaking to the troops and you can watch it there. more than 10 years after the attack of 9/11 the mastermind of the attack is set to face a judge tomorrow. and sheikh mohammed's plea could possibly give him a chance to

12:33 pm
>> for that reason, the prosecution may choose to avoid presenting evidence gathered through interrogation including any confession. they likely have enough other incriminating evidence. but with congress blocked trying the four co-differents in federal court here in the united states, it may have done holder's justice department a big favor. why? under federal rules, evidence gathered without search warrants or miranda rights is not admissible in federal court, so is all other evidence derived. but not so if a military tribunal. he was not captured on american soil and told he could remain silent while given a lawyer, he was an enemy combatant seized if pakistan on the battlefield. there were no search warranted handed to him at the door and the case of another is very instructive, the first and old gitmo detainee tried in civilian
12:34 pm
court. and the judge tossed out critical evidence leading to acquittal on 285 charges and he was convictedded of only one charge. and his was considered the easiest of all the gitmo cases. however, the rules of military tribunals are not as strict at federal rules but will they be fair? the chief prosecutor of the commission said this and i quote, "the tribunal incorporates the fal guarantees of fairness and justice demanded by our values and it also far exceeds the applicable international law of standard." another issue, the last time he was if court was late 2008, and he and the co-defendants tried to plead guilty but when president obama took office, a couple of months later he put a stop to it. we may learn tomorrow whether the accused terrorists are inclined to plead gety -- guilty again or face trial.
12:35 pm
>>trace: thank you, and now, senior judicial analyst, judge napolitano. great to see you. you go back to what gregg was saying, is this make-or-break for the commissions? >>judge napolitano: yes and no. the beginning of a long, long process, which no doubt will involve appeals and ultimately and it is rare for a military case to make it to the supreme court an appeal there. i have seen, and these are public documents, trace, and i have seen the motions that the civilian lawyers for the defendants have filed seeking the dismissal of the charges. and they make the standard constitutional arguments many of which were just nicely outlined which distinguish military tribunals from civilian. the lawyers are challenging the constitutionality the rules that congress established for the trial of the cases and do not be viced if they win a few of the motions. not a great deal of them. but a few of them.
12:36 pm
>>trace: as a constitutional and legal scholar some must be fascinating to see the issues that this trial will raise. i know the trial is a way off but the issues will be fascinating. >>judge napolitano: we have not had these issues raised in the modern. era, post world war ii era. the last time we tried people of this magnitude was world war ii and the evidence was clear. they were nazi saab tores and arrested on american soil and the issue was should they be executed. two were born not united states, but here, can evidence on thed not by the torturer of these people but by other people, who are not defendants, be used? can hearsay be used? can the defendants have and of the evidence and even some of the witnesses kept away from them in order to protect the sources of those witnesses and that evidence? here is one for you: if they are
12:37 pm
acquitted, unlikely, can they still be incarcerated? these are rules that are alien to american ears, that are very different from what we are accustomed to in to country that will be tried out in the tribunals and appellate courts will decide if the rules are close enough to the constitutional standard to permit any conviction to stay. >>trace: and backtrack if you would, judge, punished after acquittal. what does that mean? >>judge napolitano: the military commissions act that established the present court, and this is the third act, so, the one that is in existence now, permits the president of the united states to incarcerate any of the people for the rest of their lives even if they are found not guilty on the theory that they would run to, as greggood says the battlefield and harm americans and american interests, again, and this is a claim that no american president has ever asserted. this is a claim that senator
