12:02 pm
table at the summit now. right now the president is russian counterpart putin are said to have completed discussing the violence in syria. the two superpowers are at odds over russia's role in protecting the syrian regime from the united states intervention. wendell is live for us at the summit in cabo. what is the reaction there from the greek election results? >>reporter: a sigh of relief. not that the election solves the crisis but it does not make it more complicated. the president was optimistic with mexican president calderon. >> i think the election in greece yesterday indicates a positive prospect for not only them forming a government but also, then, working constructively with their international partners in order that they continue on the path of reform.
12:03 pm
>>reporter: the german chancellor merkel rained on the party selling a german news agency "no departures can be made from the reform measures." analysts hoped greece could get more time to make budget cuts and the zone crisis will not be solved here. a big euro zone summit in brussels at the end of the month. >>shepard: wendell is in mexico where the president calderon praised our president if his shift in immigration policy. >>reporter: as popular here as unpopular as it is among republicans in the united states saying the president bypassed the congress. he called this humanitarian and just. all it unprecedented action in our opinion and in this sense, mr. president, we with like to thank you for the valor and courage you had in implementing
12:04 pm
this action. >>reporter: republicans believe this was politically motivated but it tracks the republican proposal by florida senator rubio. >>shepard: loss cabos in next coe. tensions between the country and russia can be worked out. the president with his meeting with putin comes as reports that russia is sending two warships to syria. the russian news agency reports russia is sending a couple of assault vehicles and unknown number of russian marines to the syrian port of tartus. we can tell you what they are reporting, last week the united states criticized russia for sending helicopters to syria and said syrian troops are using them to kill civilians. russia is syria's long team partner and russia is seen as the best broker for a deal that would remove the syrian president. but, so far, leaders in now say
12:05 pm
that is not happening. the fox report chief correspondent is with us today. what is the administration hope from this meeting with the russian president? >>jonathan: the aim of the administration was to put a lot of pressure on russia to withdraw their military and diplomatic support for president assad. we are just hearing the first reporting coming from the meeting and president putin has said she found many common points. among the common points according to both presidents, was an agreement on the need to seek an end to the violence in syria, and reach a political solution. fine words but the difficulty is in agreeing what the political solution will be. russia has always said that president assad should not be brought from power. they agreed on an agreement to work together along with other international actors such as kofi annan the former u.n. secretary general who has been trying to broker the cease-fire
12:06 pm
which has failed. >>shepard: influential and predictable voices call for military intervention. >>jonathan: senator john mccain made a speech today where he again said that the united states now has no choice but to become involved militarily in syria. listen. >> we should make u.s. air power available along with that of our allies, part of an international effort to defend safe areas in syria, and to prevent assad's forces from harassing them as they will inof thebly -- as they will inevitably try to do. >>jonathan: the united nations monitoring who have been in syria have effectively ending their work. they have withdrawn to their hotel because it is simply not safe enough for them to be on the streets of many of those syrian cities. so, while president obama and putin talked, the situation is not changing.
12:07 pm
>>shepard: thank you. and now, to judith miller, pulitzer prize winning journalist, and adjunct fellow at the manhattan institute. so they have wrap up their talks. fur president obama and you are trying to convince leader putin to change his ways regarding tactics on syria where do you begin? >>guest: he cannot ride around as putin did on his horse without a shirt on, this leader is unenormously powerful and popular and holds more tromp charge so i would be solicitous and i would emphasize the initial instinct that the united states had with russia which was to push the reset button. remember that, right after obama was re-elected. and, say to the russians, you must do the right thing. kofi annan is depending on you in the united nations. the united states is depending on you. the syrian people are depending on you.
12:08 pm
and, see if there isn't some way to draw a citizens between the man president assad and his regime because if the regime can perpetuate itself that is what the russians care about. they do not care so were about assad. >>shepard: the regime is in place, the killing would stop and to get to that the history book with putin indicates to us that you play to his ego which is all sides and try to convince him you can have influence, some power in this matter. if you want to be a superpower act like a superpower. >>guest: and they have assets on the ground they have industry interests in syria. they have a port. that is why the ships are on the way there. the united states is being cautious about saying anything about russian troop, air, or military movements after the unfortunate misinformation about the russian mill corporates going to syria. it turns out to be syrian helicopters that were sent back
12:09 pm
to russia for repair. the russians were really annoyed about that. therapy -- they were annoyed at mrs. clinton. so they are undoing the hard feelings. we are talking about interests here, not personality, obama and putin will see eye to eye if they have an interest in doing so. >>shepard: the russians are acting pretty tough. what do you make of the voices in the united states still calling for military intervention? we do not even know the players. the rebels if you call them. >>guest: we do not know the players. the rebels do not control any territory on the ground. syria's neighbors are not in favor of the kind of libyan solution. >>shepard: what are they talking? >>guest: john mccain has been very consistent in terms of an interventionist foreign policy, he has always favored that. others, i think, are being more
12:10 pm
cautious because everyone understands this situation is far more complex and the united states by attempting to make matters better could actually make matters worse and increase the slaughter and the killing. this is a very complex and difficult situation. >>shepard: just coming from the talks, the president and president putin completed talks. they talked about bilateral trade and support for nuclear nonproliferation and continuing research into con furthering reactors to low fuel. in other words, we don't want them to get a bomb. >>guest: that is important because iran is connected to syria for the russians. we have talks starting in now. they affect nuclear proliferation and the iranian decision of whether they will proceed to enrich uranium. and the russians have the high card there, too. they are very influential. more than we are.
12:11 pm
with the iranians. the iranians really do not want the oil sanctions to take effect on july 1st. everyone thinks they are going to unless there is some kind of big deal. the russians have to be part of that. >>shepard: but putin has spoken and he found many "common points," in the talks and crisis of syria and they will continue their discussions and i quote, "from my point of view we have found many common points on this issue a after -- issue," after the meeting of the g-20. what does that mean? we will have to find out. the jury in the jerry sandusky trial has listened to disturbing and graphic testimony, much of it from people the court calls "victims" of the former coach. the defense will try to make the witnesses seem unreliable. we could have this case to the jury this week the we will get legal analysis coming up.

12:14 pm
12:15 pm
>>shepard: the defense has begun the questioning in the sex abuse trial against the former penn state university coach jerry sandusky and the judge expects the jury to start deliberating as early as this thursday. we are told the jury will be sequestered as they try to reach a verdict and the judge told them to pack appropriately. we are waiting to hear whether jerry sandusky will take the stand. he is accused of molesting ten boys over 15 years. earlier today, the mother of one accuser broke down on the stand when the prosecution asked her whether she ever talkd to her son about the encounters with coach jerry sandusky and she said she never directly asked
12:16 pm
her son about allegations. last week the accuser said coach jerry sandusky forced him into multiple times into a sexual assault in the basement of former coach's home and the accuse are said sometimes he screamed but he thought the basement was soundproof. former assistant coach at the university says he has showered and "horsed around," with children but he denies abusing children. david 35 miller is outside the courthouse whom testified for the defense today? >>reporter: in the last few hours we heard from six witnesses for the defense all of them essentially witnesses who talked about jerry sandusky's character. let me tell you about one who testified at length, his name is richard anderson, described him sex as a long time friend of jerry sandusky and said he was a former coach at penn state and he told the jury that jerry sandusky had a great reputation. he also said that the job of coach is a very demanding job
12:17 pm
and it left little time for jerry sandusky to socialize with young boys. lastly, a curious thing happens a few moments ago. i was talking to one of the attorneys for one of the alleged victims, we were in mid-conversation and he was serve add subpoena by the defense. he has been told that he is being subpoenaed to produce records about the fee arrangement with his client. the purpose, the defense wants to show that the alleged victims here are conspiring, together to file civil suits do make money and that all the claims are fabrications. >>shepard: interesting. what is the word on whether coach sandusky will testify? >>guest: it is unlikely but possible. at the starting his defense attorney told the jury, you are going to hear from jerry sandusky. he did not elaborate. people took that to mean jerry sandusky was going to testify. well, maybe we will just hear from him from videotape and letters because if all moments
12:18 pm
ago, the judge announced he expects the deliberations to begin no later than friday only here, so if you do the math that leaves, really, tuesday and wednesday for sandusky to be exam aned as a witness and cross exam aned and that is simply not going to be enough time. he would be on the witness stand probably for several days, so, it is highly unlikely. what the defense is planning we did not know. his wife, she could be called. as well as relatives of joe paterno. we will have to wait-and-see. >>shepard: thank you, david lee miller. and now, judge napolitano is with us, and criminal defense attorney randy zelin. judge, did you see the sandusky interview? if his defense attorney saw that my guess is they might hesitate to have him testify? >>judge napolitano: he is a great tv guy but not a
12:19 pm
prosecutor, he demolished jerry just in the questions he put to him, and that would be a good indication of just a very small percentage of what would happen to him on the witness stand. on the other hand, all of that horrific, absolutely unforgettable vividly violent evidence is unrebutted, unchallenged, and, therefore, will produce a very quick, i think, guilty verdict. so this is what is being weighed not lawyers' mind and in sandusky's mine as they decide whether to put him on the stand tomorrow. >>shepard: the prosecution rested on thursday of last week, they took friday off, and maybe they went a little on friday but the defense began today. the defense will finish by wednesday, according to the judge, with closings by the lawyers from both sides on thursday. what is the defense trying to accomplish in the interim? >>randy: take one step back because that schedule is fluid. and can always change. but here is the critical thing.
12:20 pm
you note all of the graphic and horrific -- but there is one problem. it is not corroborated. where is the janitor who saw this? he didn't testify. where is the underwear? no underwear? are is the child victim? the mother? at some level you have to give a jury credit. we saw it in the john edwards case, they said, wait, he didn't get the money. don't be surprised if you have one on the jury thinking the same thing. horrific allegations in -- well i need evidence. >>shepard: the subpoena was just issued. is that admitsible? the jury know they trying to make money. >>judge napolitano: some judges will people that because it undermines the credibility of those who are complaining. not the fact they are suing county because they have the right to sue. there has to be something more, some corroborating,
12:21 pm
collaboration, tayloring -- tailoring of testimony and the existence of the civil suit does not damage the testimony at all. >>shepard: we know that authorities at penn state and with the ncaa and with college boards are waiting in this is over before the sandusky trial is over above they decide what to do about penn state and their institutional control. >>judge napolitano: they will pay out a lot of money right away for humanitarian reasons. they do not want the kids to testify. it will do it for their own reasons, to turn the page and move to the next phase of its history. it doesn't want this thing happening around any longer than it has to be. >>shepard: i am sure. too long already. randy, judge, thanks. greece has had their big election. we are told if they go with the government that keeps the euro everything will be fine. no. why isn't the 401(k) doing any better? why is there so much concern?

12:40 pm
theory, i could give a gun to my six-year-old son, tell him to pull the trigger and kill someone, and neither he is guilty or am i. rain very -- >>randy: very interesting question. clearly, your intent was to endanger the child. the teacher was trying to teach the bully a lesson. she bettered the bully, did not hurt the bully. the bully learned something. >>shepard: why think randy believes that. >>judge napolitano: he makes great arguments and you do not know what he honestly believes the remark of a great trial lawyer. clearly with legal authority over the children as a schoolteacher does, you cannot use them for the purple of inflicting violence no matter the beneficial goal that might come from that violence. >>shepard: here, john any, hand janey a cup of cyanide. >>judge napolitano: the teacher is gone and will be prosecuted and should be.
12:41 pm
>>jonathan: i can't believe a teacher would think this is a good idea. >>shepard: that is or the of an absolute, isn't it? it is nuts. rain it is kind of nuts. >>shepard: you say it might better the child. >>randy: it is a creative way to better the child. but i don't think it is a crime. creative. creative. >>shepard: they would be all over you. so, what do you think happens here? >>judge napolitano: sometimes these things are resolved and the teacher resigns and loses pension rights and lose tenure and it is over. or, depending how aggressive the prosecution wants to get they will prosecute her and a jury will have to hear the case and randy will get admitted to practice law in texas so he can defend her. >>randy: if for no reason, why put the kids through more because if a criminal prosecution they have to testify. look what is happening in the sandusky case. >>shepard: all right, randy,
