of viveding survivors. people lost their homes and fear of returning to them. and the fear at the moment is that there is not adequate food and water. nepal's government renewed calls for help. and we need bulldozer & like we need of the people died. >> help is arriving. the main airport is currently crowded with planes transporting aid and search teams. so many planes are trying to get in and that are waiting up in the sky. >> thank you, david.
>> and meanwhile back here at home sparks could be be flying again on capitol hill. the senate debating a bipartisan bill allowing congress to review and reject a final nuclear deal with iran. they are warning about amendments that could toss the bipartisan support right out of the window. that is live more in washington with more on this. >> and senator is presidential candidate offered amendments to the legislation including one that included iran's right to exist as a jewish state. >> we cannot be a strong country if we are ambivalent about our allies. our allies are watching. >> fellow presidential hopeful ted cruz filed an amendment
before the sanctions that can occur. >> in the united states senate i intend to do everything humanly possible to stap a bad iran deal. here is the critical decision whether the democrats stand up to the legislation. >> secretary of state john kerry is meeting with the iranian foreminister and first time they announced a framework. the negotiators finish it up by noon the administration is bracing up for the tough recommendations. >> we are working hard with congress. senator cardin and i have known ben most of my life worked hard with senator corker to fashion
the legislation that gave the congress a procedural way of looking into the agreement without getting in the substance. >> it is a lot of work to be done. mike emmanuel thank you for joining us. >> a bill that gives congress the say threatened by amendments and are changes coming to the legislation or will it stay as ease? amy stoodard is edouter and jonnah gold berg is a fox news contributor. the amendments are good ideas and well intention ad a b, but if they have the affect or will they scuttle the proposed deal? fright, that is really the question. the enemy of the good in this
situation. should the negotiations with iran be conditioned on their sponsorship of terror and recognition and future recognition and previous threats against israel. and imprisonment of americans and the list goes on and on. and in this case you have a bipartisan fragile coalition that is broken up. and you will so democrats peeling off that bill and what that goal is that want congress to have a role in the deal and say in the final outcome to deep this together and get the 67 votes. no matter what president obama does there is a veto majority. >> and you will so the democrats peel off they will not have that anymore and not have a strong hand against this. this is a tricky process. you will see a lot of amendments
that sound good and make sense, but they can torpedocongress's part in this and this is important. >> jonna the amendment that has iran releasing american citizens as part of the deal. people like pastor a biowa dinni. what is wrong with linking his fate to a bigger deal on the nuclear program? >> on the mirror absolutely nothing. and i think that might put democrats in a tough spot to vote against because they are politically resonant with normal people. and there is a deeper problem with the corker bill. and i think corker is an honorable man and came up with a decent bipartisan compromise here. and the white house, doesn't --
all they need is 34 votes on their side and it goes through. and there is two-thirds ratification for a treaty. this statesone- third ratification. it is an affront to congressional principles. and congress would be better to vote on the deal. >> on the merit, the deal with iran is awful and anything they can do to get better it would be. >> and republicans are pushing back against global agreement on climate change and could take a playbook they used on the nuclear deal. there is talk of regulating carbon dioxide.
and mitch mcconnell, ab are up in arms about this in the epa, will their challenge be successful? >> i don't know. it will really depends on the tactics that they employ. this is a winner in the republican primary electorates. but it is not a win wither for them in the general election. if they go too far and use the wrong tactics and spend too much on this at the expense of the legislation they want passed this year before the campaign season begins. if hillary clinton can use to her advantage. and puts pressure on republican candidates then it is a loser. and that was the wrong battleground to play poll teches over how do they do it?
>> how is the congress supposed to reign in a president if they see them overroaching. >> and i mean this is going to be a bad president going to the future and it was started with president obama showing contempt for the constitutional congress. i am not sure about the political issue as ab suggest. the kyoto protocol was voted down. and if this can be portrayed if it can be fairly being a devastating approach to the economy. you will see the democrats hedge away than the republicans apologizing. >> we'll let the viewers know. thank you both. >> a fox news alert for you

holmes is pleading not guilty by reason of insanity. and that defense shifting the burden to prosecutors. johna is a former prosecutor and thank you both for joining us. >> i will begin with you, jana. why is this the burden of the prosecutors? >> in a minority of the states the burden in an insanity case shifts to the prosecutor not to prove that the defendant is guilty beyond a doubt but if he is insane. >> there is a finding he is insane. and the burden shifts to the prosecutors to prove otherwise. >> how do they go about doing that and how do you prove that
someone is sane? >> it is going to be expert driven. they will present it to them on the mental state. the case turns on whether or not the jurors believes he was legally sane at the time of the killing. colorado is unique. the burred ep is on the prosecution. if you look at legal insanity is not a successful defense. and less successful when you talk about a murder case. if you couple that with with pre-meditation evidence you will find he was sane and pre-meditated and not a psychotic break. >> we tonight know what the prosecutor has planned. but what would you imagine they will do? >> the prosecution has to hit home. all of the planning that went in the episode, and when you look
at month and weeks of planning and stock piling of ammunition and purchase of the guns and booby trapped his own apartment and law enforcement would find them and they would blow themselves up. this is a journey of an evil person and if i am prosecuting the case i am holding up the picture of the victim. 12 people who he killed and a six year old child and 70 people he injured. did he have it after this person and one logical conclusion. he deserves the death penalty. >> what does the defense have to do at this point? >> the defense is obviously going to argue that he had a psychotic break and couldn't formulaate the intent because he was crazy. there is a difference between
mentally ill and legally insane. he is mentally ill. and he has a documented history. and looking at him in the first few court appearance. and eyes were glades over. and he was looking out in to space. and it is that the jurors find he was mentally ill. if they knew he believed the difference of right and wrong. >> what if he is found not guilty by reason of insanity. >> he will be housed in a state run mental facility probably the rest of his life. but legally until he is no longer insane. chances of that are slim to none. not as good as being behind bars. >> say he is given the death
penalty can the defense appeal? nabsolutely. and i can tell you the grounds for defense is that they he did not get a fair trial because the judge did not order a change of venue. the state ordered 9000 prospective jurors. bow know that everyone questioned the jurors and the issue is not if they heard about the case or not. everyone has. even if move it to a different jurisdiction. the question is can they look at the evidence? >> and if that is what occurs how long could that be drawn out? >> the appeal process could be drawn out 20 years if necessary.
>> and he's still young enough guy and 20 years is not that long for him for all intents and purposes. >> thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. we'll see what happens. >> they say one picture is worth a thousand words and hillary clinton may have an optic's problem on her hands. howard is next. >> and assault in the airport. landing one person a first-class ticket to jail.
