tonight on the presidential contenders a man who must overcome not just a host of other better funded republican rivals with but a serious deficit in name recognition, my colleague bret baier this evening with former new york governor george pataki. >> you know i kid when i go around new hampshire and this is my eighth trip since september that every four years there's the owe pump picks, the world
1:29 am
cup and pataki shows up thinking about running for president and that seems to be true. >> that joke from former new york governor george pataki last month in new hampshire referencing past flirtations with a presidential run. >> i'm going to be involved in what capacity we'll see? in 2012 pataki made the choice to back mitt romney bau pataki says this time it's nor real. >> it's very different and i think it's different primarily because the world is a different place. i think here in the united states we're at greater risk than we have been at any time since september 11th being attacked here and so this had time is different, i'm serious about this and we'll see what happens, but if i had to bet i'd bet that i will be in this race. >> we always look at polls and it's way early, but if you look at every poll you're down at the 1% maybe lower than 1%. >> you're building me up here bret. >> how would you tell somebody this is why you should look at me? >> well first of all you have it to believe in yourself and i
1:30 am
do. i've run a very complex government a difficult government i did it for 12 years and i think i did it very well and i know i can i i can do do it in washington if id the opportunity. >> do you get frustrated when you say george pataki and they say who? >> i haven't been in plik for the last eight years and i think that's a good thing. i've been in the private sector observing government by makes me more inclined to get in. you have to earn it and i don't mind starting at the bottom i've always started at the bottom. >> political analysts see pluses minuses for pataki as a client. >> i think he will strengthen the debates, he has a lot to say and he will be well-respected in listening to him during the debates, but it's difficult to see how he puts the coalition together to win. >> but pataki has defied the odds before in 1994 he was elected governor of new york in a stunning upset against mario cuomo.
1:31 am
pataki went on to serve three terms. most americans are recognize pataki as one of the leading public figures in the aftermath of 9/11 working tirelessly to put the city and the state back together again. >> the american people are strong. we will get through this. >> that experience he says shaped his ideas about leadership. >> the number one priority of government is to provide for its security of people and i don't think this administration is doing that. i was this lower manhattan on september 11th. i saw the consequences of our thinking that because radical islamic terrorists thousand of miles away across an ocean we're safe. we're not. i would rebuild our military stand with our allies third of all, go after those bases destroy them hopefully with local forces but to the extent we need to put american forces on the ground not to create a democracy, not to build a government but to destroy those enemies of us and then get out and come back home. >> when you look around the hot spots around the globe and there
1:32 am
are a lot of them what do you think the biggest threat is for the u.s.? >> well certainly short term it is radical islam in iran and iranian government with nuclear weapons that is committed to not just the destruction of israel but death to america is an enormous challenge, but longer term china poses the greatest strategic threat to the united states and that's why i think it's porn we rebuild our military as a far stronger military than we do now not so that we can use it but so that we don't have to use it. >> taxes, you mentioned a big change what would taxes like under a president pataki. >> i think our tax code is an example of how corrupted the system in washington has become. simplify it so the american people can understand it. take away the special interests, influence and ability to really right that tax code. we would get more are revenue, we would have a stronger economy, more jobs and it would be far fairer. >> you would change lobbying as
1:33 am
we know it in washington? >> we have to reduce that influence of the special interests here in washington and one of many laws i would propose would be you serve one day in congress in the house or senate there is a lifetime ban on your ever been a lobbyist. >> obamacare, you call this the worst law of your lifetime. >> yeah. no doubt in my mind. you know i was governor and i dealt with the problem of the uninsured and we did it in a very effective way that used market-based resources and that helped to create a stronger economy. >> can you get republicans to circle the wagons around one alternative to be opposite of obamacare? >> sure. i think so. and i think the model that i had in new york worked very well. we created a program called family health that allowed people earning 18 20 $22,000 a year to access a very good policy at almost no cost, we created a program called healthy new york where entrepreneurs of
1:34 am
spall businesses or groups could pull together and access health insurance at low cost and it worked. that's what we can do to relays obamacare. >> immigration. >> control the border have a process by which those who are here legally, have worked, pay taxes, not broken the law can have a pathway to legalized status not citizenship had. what i would do 200 hours of community service, acknowledge you broke the law, when that is done you will have legalized status. >> like others in his party considering a run or already running, pataki has been quick to publicly criticize hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton isn't going to have a positive agenda and she isn't going to be able to run on her record of secretary of state which i think was abysmal. what she's going to do is try to reaten the american people that we're against the middle class, we're against minorities against women and hen look at respect for the law. i think americans want our politicians to live like us. if we have to obey the law, so do they. whether it's the foreign contributions that have poured
1:35 am
in i think that gives a very serious issue, particularly the sale of the 20% of our uranium supply to a russian company at a time when she was approving that deal as secretary of state to have been a server in her basement. >> looking ahead pataki doesn't seem phased that many experts are counting them out. what do you tell somebody that says i wouldn't bet on it? >> i've heard that a lot, i heard it in the past and i hear it now. i understand it's up to me to make the case and i believe i can. >> and it won't be long before we know what his plans are. >> when are you going to decide? >> i know i have to decide sooner rather than later. i'd say certainly this spring. >> and will you be able to compete on a money front with some of these big numbers? >> there will be candidates that have a lot more money than i do but that's always been the case when i ran every other time. >> your family are they into this? >> oh, yeah. my -- my family is very much into this. i think it's fair to say all four of my kids an certainly my
1:36 am
wife libby appreciate that this is a defining election and they also appreciate the fact that i have the passion and i believe the experience and the vision to be able to run this country well. >> when you're not thinking about possibly running or your business exploits what do you like to do? >> i grew up on a little farm in upstate new york and i have always had farming as my passion and right now i have a farm on lake champlain, whenever i can escape that's where we go to, to hike through the woods, work it the fields rebuild old stone walls and i have a great life unless i turn on the tv unless i read a paper and you see what's happening in the country and you see what's happening in the world and if you believe in your ability to lead and don't try to get involved same on you. >> so paint a path for me to george pataki getting the nomination. >> you just work hard, you lay out your ideas, you go to new
1:37 am
hampshire, you go to iowa south carolina and make the case. you know pretty much every time i ran for a new office everybody said there's no chance it makes you work harder and i won and hard work a good vision connecting with people and you can shock a lot of the experts. >> our contenders 2016 series tomorrow night when bret sits down with new jersey governor chris christie. hillary clinton is involved in more conflict of interest allegations over her family foundation. we'll talk about it with the panel when we come right back. befo
1:38 am
1:39 am
1:40 am
all contributors will be disclosed and all ribters to the clinton global initiative are disclosed in public as of now anyway. >> and if your wife is secretary of state and you get sponsors approximate in another country, they may be doing it just because they believe in it but it opens up too many questions
1:41 am
of conflicts of interest so we suspended those. >> hillary clinton at her confirmation hearing for secretary of state back in 2009 and bill clinton near the end of her time there pledging full transparency to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest from foreign donations. time to bring in our panel. yoki dreesen managing editor of foreign policy a.b. stod tarred and charles lane. so there were a couple of new reports today about the clinton foundation and the question of transparency a canadian affiliate, which failed to disclose 1,100 donors who gave more than $30 million to the clinton foundation and we've also got the clinton health access initiative based in boston which failed to disclose tens of pls of dollars, much of it from foreign governments. chuck, do you buy the explanation, some would say the excuses of the clinton foundation for this failure to disclose? >> i suppose it depends on which
1:42 am
excuse you're talking about because in the case of the canadian money what you're hearing from the canadian guy if this charge of that is canadian law prohibited the disclosure so there was conclusion about that, that there's controversy that's really what canadian law says. >> because the new york times says they when to canadian officials and canadian lawyers have said certainly after 2010 so at least the last three years that they could have disclosed everything. >> exactly. what we're describing is the basis for a whole series of new stories about who is telling the truth about that point. then you have the global health initiative which is based in boston and what was interesting about that story is i didn't see a long list of who those countries were the globe didn't seem to get far on that and the countries that were listed in their story were not actually the most controversial, it was switzerland and stuff. that one it looks to me like it if it your honor's it out the names when they finally release them are switzerland,
1:43 am
netherlands, brit inn that would be okay about you if there are more russias and middle eastern countries they are in trouble. >> the whole point that the clintons worked out in the obama administration back in 2009 when there was all of it this talk about a potential conflict of interest was to avoid the appearance of it any donation by a foreign entity to the clinton foundation had had to be disclosed. haven't they -- whatever -- however benign the country, haven't they violated that? >> i would agree. it doesn't party whether it's from russia or switzerland. they said they wanted to be transparent and in their actions they did not want to be transparent. she has not put distance between herself and any ethically dubious potential conflicts of interest. not at all. the foreign donations to the clinton health program out of boston doubled in three years when she was in the state department. the number of donors who lobbied
1:44 am
the state department when she was secretary of state, you know almost 200. not only the amount of speeches but what he was paid for them wept way up when she was secretary of state. there might not be a smoking gun but there's so much smoke that the clintons with that many smart people in a large organization we're not talking about a couple disorganized bum blers we're talking about policy that was set and kept by everybody. >> you know i want to get to at that point exactly, yoki because foreign entities whether a foreign government a foreign business a foreign individual they have their own charities in their own countries. if you're from saudi arabia you could donate to a is a saudi arabian charity. are we being to cynical in questions when one of these foreign entities government business individual gives money to the clinton foundation to wonder whether they are trying to curry favor with the then secretary of state hillary clinton. >> i don't think it's a cynical thing to wonder. i agree with our two other guests the excuses keep shifting one after the other: in the says
1:45 am
of the clinton health testify row wand da gave a contribution that was not dis closed you united kingdom gave money they said it wasn't increasing by very much there was no increase in the gift. so you're really parsing at that point and when you parse that far down the macro question of whether they getting gifts to buy influence with the current administration were they getting gifts to curry favor with the next administration those macro questions dangle again and again and again and these micro skop pick answers don't get addressed and help solve those. >> one of the things we learned in that boston globe story was the guy in charge there was getting paid $400,000 a year to run this charity. if you're getting paid that much money i think you should be doing a better job of monitoring all these -- >> i want to pick up exactly on that because charity navigator which is one of the most respected charity watchdog groups that sits there and rates is a charity legit or are they
1:46 am
spending questionable money says that they cannot rate the clinton foundation because of its, quote, atypical business plan -- business model. and one of the questions they raise is that so much money is being spent on administration and not on direct services ab. >> right. i mean earlier today on the broadcast it was something like a measurement of 10% to 12% which is pitiful. the clinton foundation and the clinton campaign would be citing charity navigator if they had got a good rating. they just as yoi said they have got to answer questions about why they weren't transparent, all the good they were doing or they're letting it bleed and it literally sounds like their enemies say a slush fund to enrich the clintons. >> there was a lot of talk about the clinton supporters this story is going to die out. it doesn't seem to be dying out. it seems to be snowballing.
1:47 am
>> she can't change the subject. talk about baltimore or whatever policy she wants until she can answer it. >> she has to answer it. next up negotiations over a nuclear deal with iran ramp up again. so does the jockeying for advantage.
1:48 am
1:49 am
1:50 am
going through every detail. >> bob corker, chairman of the senate foreperson relations committee continuing to question a possible nuclear deal with iran and demanding congress
1:51 am
get to vote on any agreement. we're back now with the panel. yogi, what do you make in the senate over a bill that would give congress a right of approval over a deal and the claim by iranian leaders that if congress were to vote down any deal it's the u.s. that would be isolated, not the iranians? >> i think on the latter point, at least optically that's true. if a deal was voted down by congress the russians and chinese desperate to go back in business with the iranians french and germans want to go back. they will blame the u.s. we did our part. u.s. you want to keep sanctions on fine, we will go back and make money again. it's true optical sense. the talks are an interesting point. the senate, bob corker got a victory, they wanted to view the bill. he said he would veto. then he backed down and said fine i i won't veto the bill. corker has a win. he is fighting so hard to make sure that the poison pill amendments that are
1:52 am
meant to further toughen the language block amendments put forward by republicans. >> pick up on this question of a veto. corker a.b., says he has 67 votes to override any presidential veto. it's one thing when the vote is whether or not to give congress a vote. you know, an opportunity to weigh in. it's another if the president announces a deal and it's a question as to whether or not you're going to vote down that deal. would you -- it would be awfully hard, wouldn't it, for a veto to be overridden, in other words the president, if he gets 34 votes, democratic votes, he is able to sustain whatever deal he makes. >> right. that's why house speaker john boehner told a group in vift this weekend we don't have the votes to override because, ultimately, when you get. >> to override a veto of a disapproval. >> right to. torpedo the deal. not to review it but to sink it. because, there there is enormous pressure on democrats right now from the
1:53 am
white house. the rhetoric is you want to sink this deal? then what? what are you going to come up with? they are under pressure to close ranks and you see, you know it is a victory for corker that it's come this far. we still don't know what the deal is it's a framework not a deal. >> if there is a deal. >> it's true what the iranians have been stay saying what we believe to be true in terms of when and how the sanctions are relieved. but, there is a reason he is so frantic to hold this coalition together bob corker because it's fragile. >> then, there are the duling in the last 24 hours between senator tom cotton who was a fierce opponent of the and iranian foreign minister of a cotton challenged zarif to a debate. he said i understand if you decline after all in your 20's you hid in u.s. during iran-iraq war while peasants and kids were marched to die. zarif tweeted back serious
1:54 am
