9:00 pm
we'll have a very provocative factor on thursday. thanks for watching us nice. ms. megyn is next. the spin stops here. we are looking out for you. breaking tonight, serious concerns the world's most volatile region is on the brink of exploding. welcome to the kelly file, everyone n recent days we have witnessed troubling headlines out of the middle east including tensions soaring between two of the power prayers, saudi arabia and iran. diplomatic ties between the nations have been severed after two saudi posts were attacked in iran, following the saudi's execution of a top cleric. the u.s., so far, reluctant to get involved. meantime, iranian state tv showing off a new underground
9:01 pm
missile depot. in it, missiles that are believed to be capable of covering nuclear warheads. this just days after iran shot a rocket close to a u.s. warship. and despite the end of the afghanistan war, remember, no more combat, our troops are engaged in a dangerous operation this. one soldier was killed, others injured and fighters surrounded by the enemy at one point until a team managed to rescue them. the taliban now controls more territory than any time since 2001. all the gains, given back. then, the crisis in syria. the ap reported suggesting the obama administration now feels the best case scenario there won't come before a 2017. more than five years after president obama called on president assad to leave power.
9:02 pm
and while we're on syria, our sister network, sky news obtained a chilling video of what is being described as a jihadi university of sorts there. look at this. isis terrorists are being trained to carry out attacks on the west, the scientists seen preparing surface to air missiles. they're planning it at a university. that is how much power and control they have. meantime, relations aren't blossoming with our important ally in the region, among reports the u.s. has been spying on israel. a diplomat saying president obama essentially wrote off the israeli prime minister after his 2012 reelection. so what of the white house and leadership? charles krauthammer. >> we're in the middle of elite terrorism all over the world,
9:03 pm
shutting down capitols in europe, attacks here in the united states and the president's answer is gun control? that is the reason the country and the world is in trouble? we have a president who is not asleep at the wheel, he's not at the wheel, he's somewhere else. >> joining me now, general michael smith, serving as the director of intelligence agency under president obama from 2012-014 and served at the united states central command, general, great to see you. >> thank you for having me. >> the white house saying this is the lack of leadership. and to hear them tell it, it's all rosie. >> yes. i mean, just watching your lead in saying what is going on, i think that a couple things, and
9:04 pm
i'll be brief. the importance of this next national election is huge because whoever is the president of the united states is going to deal with an absolute mess on their hands. it's going to last their entire presidency. when there is a void of u.s. he'dership around the world and i've seen this in many stages, it will be filled by dictators and terrorists and those by threats we face. and all of the problems that we're having with russia the dynamic of russia being involved now. the massive immigration problem
9:05 pm
and problems coming with europe as well as the spread of essentially the islamic state into north africa, west africa. >> will they operate with impunity? >> we have seen these training events. this one, i saw a little bit of the video today and i'll tell you, it's -- they're very sophisticated. that enemy is a very cunning enemy and we have to be smarter. i mean this is not something where you know, a resolution at the united nations or a big speech or some poor answers by our spokesperson at the white house, and i want to sit here tonight and i want to cheer for our country and president but i find it difficult because i feel like we're playing on a strategic football field and we're not even in the stadium.
9:06 pm
i know we have military forces out there doing all they can. it's a lot of frustration. ill tell you the lack of leadership now is hurting our reputation, and, this missile issue that you talked about with iran? >> be specific. >> these are tests they're doing. it's not justifiering a missile. >> and a u.s. -- >> it's testing our resolve and rules of engagement saying we're giving it the big middle finger and we're going to see what you're going to do about it. are you going to punch us in the nose? what we could do is put a red dot on the missile and say we will destroy that the next time you even remotely think about it. we have to show strength that is
9:07 pm
hard power for them to soft power stuff just playing around, it doesn't work in the real world. it just doesn't work. i don't want to bash on our president. i don't. i want to help. but we're making poor decisions. we're making -- we're showing the enemies and threats that we face, we're showing them our weaknesses in such a big way, and frankly, it's very dangerous, and on the battlefield, when you have, you know, uncertainty, a great level of uncertainty, you build up capabilities. and we haven't done that. we haven't done that. we put ourselves in a weak position. >> you interesting questions. >> it's huge, huge. >> general -- >> they're going to be dealing with this problem, it's going to
9:08 pm
be left on their door step. >> thank you. >> well, as mentioned our sister network, sky news obtained chilling video. in it, isis fighters are seen developing weapons such as driverless suicide car bombs. one british bomb technician says what he saw in this video kept him up all night. >> this kind of isis activity has been suspected but the riddo was the first evidence that it's happening. it comes from syria, and shows what is being called a jihadi technical college whereforin fighters are being taught to wage jihad in other countries and isis scientists produce items like remote dronl cars with mannequin drivers. experts say there are self regulating thermostats that produce the heat signatures of
9:09 pm
humans which allow bombs to evade security screenings. >> you had a vehicle driving towards you, and there is nobody in it. that is probably the result in a cause of action. a long range percent. if it is believed to be a human being, then, the threat has to get closer before counter action takes place. >> isis scientists stunned experts by producing homemade thermal batteries long thought to be impossible for terror groups. it doesn't give the power to fire new missiles but allows them to recommission thousands of older missiles. the video might be beneficial. listen. >> it's very, very good insight into where they are now, what they're aspiring to be and crucially, the diversity of the
9:10 pm
threat to the united states. >> of course the big concern is that wanna-be jihadis might be eager to attend jihadi tech. >> trace, thank you. >> also developing tonight an ugly twist in the debate over taking middle eastern refugees after several young women say they were sexual assaulted of large groups of what police describe as arab men. plus, just hours ago a judge ordered a halt to same-sex marriages for a state. didn't the supreme court decide this? we'll see how far this now stand off could go, when we're joined next by the member of the dnc and president of the national organization for marriage. and a woman convicted of hiring a hitman to kill her husband has a new chance at freedom. wait until you hear who is representing her. come on in pop pop.
9:11 pm
9:12 pm
happy birthday. i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him.
9:13 pm
a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta. big story breaking night
9:14 pm
moments ago out of alabama. as the top judge takes a dramatic stand against the u.s. supreme court decision legalizing same-sex marriage. judge roy moore, chief justice of the alabama state supreme court ordering state officials today not to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. some officials are following the order. others are outright ignoring it. joining us now, robert zimmerman, democratic strategist and member of the dnc. also brian brown, president of the national organization of marriage. and we begin with mr. brown. brian, thank you for being here. how account judge do this in the face of the supreme court decision saying guy marriage is legal? period. in all states. >> it really goes to your understanding of whether you believe that the supreme court has the right to dictate to the rest of the country key questions. abraham lincoln when faced with the supreme court bet issued the
9:15 pm
infamous scott decision did not. it is not everyone branch of government. and when the court issues an opinion as it did, which goes against all precedent, against all logic, which even justice roberts, justice scalia, justice thomas, in the defense, said that this is not the constitution, then it's incumbent upon legislators, other elected officials, state government officials, to not just cow tout to the court -- >> the supreme court has the final say on what the law is. that was established long ago in marbury versus madison. but this is my request to you. this is what huckabee said would and should happen. to you u.s. supreme court, you don't have the final say, i don't care about marbury and madison and encouraged state officials to do this, how does this unfold? will we have chaos if states are allowed to decide which supreme court decisions they comply with
9:16 pm
and which they are not? >> i think you are misreading marbury versus madison. you say that abraham lincoln was wrong. in bust v bell we have a -- >> there is a signature for that, go to legislature and ask them to pass a law. >> that's whan happened. wisconsin and other states did not comply. if tomorrow the supreme court said congress no longer has the right to enact laws, everyone would look up and say, no, we're not going to abay the supreme court. so of course in the general course of law, the supreme court when dealing with litigants makes a decision that is based on precedent, people give it respect. but if the supreme court makes a decision that is so outside the bounds of establishment constitutional law, established president, like scott, like bell, then there has to be resistance or you don't have democracy any more. >> interesting take on it. brian, thank you for being here. we appreciate it.
9:17 pm
>> thank you. >> up next, robert zimmerman. robert, thank you for being here. you don't have democracy any more if you listen to the u.s. supreme court. this is not about gay rights. this is about rule of law now. >> it is about time someone shouted "live from new york, it's saturday night." this must be the gang from "duck dynasty." what he is advocating is overturning our constitution. >> chaos. >> that's right. there is now been the supreme court, federal court, 11 mg appeals court including alabama overruled chief judge moore. and called for and defended for the marriage equality. this isn't about liberal or conservative. it is not even about marriage equality any more. it is respect for our constitution. >> if they really want to get around the supreme court ruling, you can try to get a constitutional amendment passed. you could. >> that's how it works. >> a legal remedy. where if the u.s. says we don't
9:18 pm
want that and the existing constitution mandates it be legal then you change the constitution so you say we don't like that. but what is happening now is they are just saying, no. no, this is an out of control supreme court. and where does this end, robert? it is not just going to be alabama. >> i'll tell where it ends is with respect to the rule of law and respect for the constitutional process. let's remember, the alabama court of judiciary, not a liberal cauldron of thinking, removed judge moore in 2003 for defying a court order. >> he said would come back as chief justice he would comply with the law and no longer, how did he put it, that he wouldn't do anything to create friction with the federal court. hello, chief judge, this counts. >> megyn, thanks for keeping it fair and balanced and bringing up both sides. think i this will wake up people. it is not about a liberal conservative debate, it is about respect for constitution. >> the rule of law is what it is. if you don't like it, there are
9:19 pm
ways around it. but have you it obey. great to see you. >> great to be with you. >> donald trump just went to a new place with his suggestion that ted cruz may not be an american citizen. chris walton and dana parrino are here with that. and police are describing a crowd of arab men. dana lash is here on that in moments.
9:20 pm

9:22 pm
on the terrorist threat... marco rubio was missing - fundraising in california instead. two weeks later, terrorists struck again in san bernardino... and where was marco? fundraising again in new orleans. over the last 3 years, rubio has missed important national security hearings and missed more total votes than any other senator. politics first: that's the rubio way. right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message. we have a big story developing tonight about what to do with millions of displaced refugees from the war-torn middle east. it started on new year's eve. in the city of cologne, germany. large crowds that police describe as arab men started sexually assaulted young women. here is a terrifying account from a young victim.
9:23 pm
>> reporter: she said dozens of men surrounded her and her female friends, touching them everywhere and stealing their cell phone and wallets. >> now a protest from government officials and mass migration of these immigrants. joining me now, dana lash, host of dana. good to see you. >> thank you. >> you've got to love the mayor of the town in which this happened. mayor reccer. who comes out and says, these young women could really do themselves a favor if they would just stay an arm's length away from strangers. it is always possible it keep a certain distance that is longer than an arm's length. really, mayor? really henriette? tell us all about it. >> megyn, i was blown away by the mayor's response. she is shaming these women's opinions. it is hard to stay an arm's length away from someone who is man-handling you.
9:24 pm
separating you from your group. one account i read, a 17-year-old girl was surrounded by something like 30 men at one point. they were separating her from her friends. >> it's her fault because she didn't run faster? >> her code of conduct, right? this is offensive on its face. and all done for the sake of political correctness because german officials didn't want to rock the boat. >> they are coming out and saying it was a mass sexual assault by hundreds of men, potentially. >> yes. >> i have read all sort of different numberes. >> yes. >> now the lead are of the national party for germany says is this the kos moncosmopolitan colorful germany that merkel wished for? there were asylum seekers. which is very controversial in germany as it is here. >> some german newspapers are reporting that 14 of the 15 so far known or identified are those muslim migrants.
9:25 pm
those coming into germany. and this hasn't just happened in cologne either. it is happening more and more. it happened in norway. this is like the second or third time in recent weeks that you have had police and elected leaders have to tell muslim migrant what is acceptable and not acceptable behavior in public. at some point, are we going to have like a little lesson on, can we teach these, coming from a patriarchal society, can we tell muslims asylums not to rape and assault women? >> they are still investigating who exactly reported the crime. i'm just reporting on those we know who have been detained so far. but there are also complaints, these women and supporters in germany, because there was a basic media blackout of it. they let in a bunch of migrants. they believe at least 8 of the detained suspects were asylum seekers. when the crimes are allegedly committed by these guys. the scorn is for the women who for not running way faster.
9:26 pm
then the media blacks it out. you can understand why some are upset. >> have you 1400 girls who were raped, sold into sexual slavery wp prostituted. abused, by pakistani men. local authorities and officials kept it quiet because they didn't want to disrupt the diversity of the area. it all came down to sacrificing the safety of our girls, safety of young women, safety of adult women for political correctness. >> unbelievable. this mayor will have to dial it back and have to come out and issue apublic apology. i don't care if she is in germany. dana, good to see you. >> thank you, megyn. good to see you. >> up next, could senator cruz be disqualified because one of his parents is from canada? that's exactly the question donald trump wanted us to ask tonight.
9:27 pm
it will be answered yes. . then a woman convicted of hiring a hitman to kill her husband now has a new shot at freedom. we will show you how dalia dippolito, caught on camera, preparing to put a hit on her husband, and well known kelly file attorney is helping her. >> are you sure that you don't know anybody that would want to kill your husband? you would want to kill your need to hire fast? go to and post your job

9:29 pm
9:30 pm
from the world heed quarters of fox news, it's the kelly files with megyn kelly. >> front-runner donald trump sp raising questions about whether senator ted cruz can legally be
9:31 pm
president. he was born to an american mother and cuban father that later went on to be an american. most consider that makes mr. cruz an american. for mr. trump, not strong enough. >> if you run against a democrat, whoever it may be, and this there is a lawsuit. >> he said he is a natural born citizen because his mother is a u.s. citizen and father is a u.s. citizen and he is a natural born citizen. >> i want to win fair and square. i don't want to win on this point. >> his aides say he has a passport. >> well, he doesn't have a passport. >> everyone said he had a joint passport. >> senator cruz asked today if he is worried about this. >> you have argued before the supreme court. why do you think on the legal basis he is wrong? >> oh, look. the legal issue is straight
9:32 pm
forward. this is a national born citizen. >> you know full well because you have done it on other issues. >> it is straight forward. at the end of the day, this is a nn issue. >> turning to me now is dana parrino. serving as white house secretary under george w. bush. so you tell me, because you guys are the political experts, trump is surging -- no. cruz is surging in iowa. trump wants to win iowa. he hasn't had much success attacking cruz on the issues. and so this is a nice little meaty burger for to eat and digest over the next few days that takes cruz off message. dana? >> yes. i think that -- here eat think. donald trump was asked about this by the washington post. he basically set the cat amongst the pigeons.
9:33 pm
he is very shrewd. i think he has grown as a candidate. he knew exactly what he was doing. but his biggest defenders, say he was being asked about it and the media is the one that blew up the story. now donald trump realized that may not be the best thing to do. he is ridiculed for raising the question of whether ted cruz could be president. s so he is trying to dial it back. but on every other day they say, he is brilliant. but not today. >> trump had the long plan laid out for ted cruz. go into court. get a declared judgment. that's not possible unless you have a case or controversy under constitution. but that's neither here nor there. and taking legal advice from your opponent in the race for president. and so you tell us what is really going on here. >> the concern is so delicious. >> i feel the love. >> and i'm here to help, ted.
9:34 pm
i love ted. i'm worried for him. i hope that this terrible thing doesn't befall him. and repeating the unsubstantiated charge. i heard and wolf blitzer said, no, that's not true. that's what i hear. >> but it is effective, right? he tried to take ted cruz out in iowa. he is trying to say it iowans, he is canadian. >> smell the maple syrup. donald trump wouldn't be in the front runter in the republican polls if not for his original controversy with barack obama in 2011. when he broadly alleged that president was secret kenyan who had misled the american people and was going to be removed from office. because of all of this stuff. and it was huge.
9:35 pm
that was actually his entre into the republican primary. and it was thought that maybe the president wasn't worn here. >> but this is a legal technicality he is trying to get at. if you're a natural born citizen, you can be president. that's the rule. the supreme court never decided this in the history of the country. but all of the times it has come up suggest cruz has zero problem here. zero. so this is a political move, dana. >> it is. but i think donald trump is not wrong. if ted cruz became nominee, would the democrats try to gum up the work? >> oh, he is insisting it will. okay, i cannot let you go before we talk about the boots. mark wco rubio is taking a hit wearing man boots. what are they called? >> man heels. >> i grew up on a ranch. those are just normal boots.
9:36 pm
>> why is this a deal, dana? >> i guess because ted cruz is saying marco rubio is wearing boots that would try to help him in his height stature. and i would never do that. >> is this a -- >> no, no. >> is it a height issue or a girly man thing? >> cruz wears cowboy boots. they are saying that rubio's boots are fancy boots. that they are dude boots. instead of -- >> they are. the rubio campaign was forced to come out and say where they got them. >> now we've got from birth ris em to booterism and now we have the clear evidence. >> i don't know. you say this isn't a deal. but every man i talked to, they say, why? if they were cowboy boots -- see, something is down. >> the ayatollah is on a -- >> oh, boots on the ground.
9:37 pm
>> caught on camera appearing from her explicit words, to try to hire a hitman to kill her husband. she was convicted. the case went national. now dalia dippolito may have a new shot at freedom. and a well known kelly file lawyer is leading the charge. plus, new information revealed on the kelly file last night after a wildly popular netflix series raisees a question. here on the new revelations and on whether or not steven avery may be getting out of jail. how do i know i'm getting the best price on this? we'll match any competitors price. what about this? price match guarantee. and this? yep! so no monkey business, no tomfoolery? oh, we do have tom foolery, tom. staples has a price match guarantee.
9:38 pm
make low prices happen. staples make more happen. morning ted! scott! ready to hit some balls? sure. ooh! hey buddy, what's up? this is what it can be like to have shingles. oh, man. a painful, blistering rash. i keep thinking how did he get this, he's in such good shape. if you had chickenpox, the shingles virus is already inside you. 1 in 3 people will get shingles in their lifetime. your immune system weakens as you get older and it loses its ability to keep the shingles virus in check. after almost 3 weeks, i just really wanted to give it a shot. the shingles rash can last up to 30 days. you know, i'm not feeling it today. don't worry about it buddy. we'll do it another day. don't wait until you or someone you care about develops shingles. talk to your doctor or pharmacist today
9:39 pm
about a vaccine that can help prevent shingles. thi work for the dogs twenty-four seven. i am the butler. these dogs shed like crazy. it's like being inside of a snow globe. it takes an awful lot of time to keep the house clean. i don't know what to do. sfx: (doorbell) what's this? swiffer sweeper and dusters? this is nice and easy boys. it really sticks to it. it fits in all of the tight spaces this is really great
9:40 pm
does that look familiar to you? i'm no longer the butler, i am just one of the guys. i absolutely love my new but the rent is outrageous. good thing geico offers affordable renters insurance. with great coverage it protects my personal belongings should they get damaged, stolen or destroyed. [doorbell] uh, excuse me. delivery. hey. lo mein, szechwan chicken, chopsticks, soy sauce and you got some fortune cookies. have a good one. ah, these small new york apartments... protect your belongings. let geico help you with renters insurance.
9:41 pm
law enforcement despised steven avery. steven avery was a shiny example of their inadequacies, their misconduct. >> no one ever intended to do anyone any harm by this. we firmly believe that we have the guilty party at time. >> this is one of the biggest miscarriages of justice i ever saw in 20 years and thousands of cases. >> that was a clip from the netflix series "making a murderer" that gained a lot of attention and criticism. the series tells the story of steven avery, the man on left,
9:42 pm
and his nephew, brendon, on the right pf avery was released after serving 18 years of an alleged rape that he did not commit. shortly after his release, avery along with his nephew, was arrested and convicted of murdering a different woman. teresa hallbook. now there are questions about whether he did that crime. host of justice with judge janine and former westchester county new york attorney, the district attorney, judge, good to see you. >> good to see you. >> there is such a move tomt get him released from prison again. just because he is a victim of the system once doesn't mean it happened again. in fact the odds of it happening twice, you tell me. >> i don't believe in coincidence in these kinds of cases. but i have looked that case and there is evidence, beyond a reasonable doubt, 12 jurors unanimously believed, that this guy avery killed the victim in this case. a 28-year-old woman. there is no question he called her.
9:43 pm
she was at his junkyard. she was there to take a picture. he said she left. but the only people to see her were the people who were at his place. her bones are found near the house. her dna is on a bullet fragment in the garage with her blood. his dna is under the hood of her car which was removed and placed in a secret area of the junkyard. look, there is evidence here. and megyn, it is like anything else. if you make a decision that you're only going to present one side of the story, everyone is going to say, oh, my gosh, this guy is not guilty. i'd believe it too if i saw netflix. which is why there are more than 200,000 people asking for this pardon. >> and this was not meant to be fair and balanced, it was a defense resolution. and then they peppered in more facts from the other side so it
9:44 pm
could appear balanced, but that does taint the piece a bit, doesn't it? >> it clearly taints the piece. when you look at what was not presented in this documentary as you call it, then you realize that what they did was try to sway their audience. this isn't a documentary. i don't believe this is a documentary. where is the victim's family? where is the sympathy for them? there is always kinds of sympathy for savery and his family. >> i asked him last night, the prosecutor, or the defense attorney, i asked him, if your guys didn't do it, why were her bones on the property. he said, we believed they were burned some place else. the campfire in the backyard could not have burned the bones in that way. >> that's hog wash. you could burn the bones the way they were burned 20 feet from where this guy avery lived. to follow that line of reasoning, megyn, you would have to believe that police, prosecutors, crime lab teches in two counties. two counties involved here. all together and said, let's kill this 28-year-old woman and blame it on avery and let's move
9:45 pm
her bones from here to there when everyone knows she was that junkyard doing her job. that she is said to her boss, the guy gives me the creeps, i don't want to go back. she was afraid of him. he called her. he used star 67 to cover up he called her. then to make believe on his direct line that she never came and he was trying to get her there. >> the other thing that is disturbing is his talk of torture, building a torture chamber while he was in prison serving a wrongful sentence. we have a video? let's see it. oh the handcuffs introduced at trial. i'm talking about his statement in jail that he wanted to build a torture chamber. >> he described to other prisoners the fact that he had what he called a dream torture chamber. he actually drew it for another inmate. of what he wanted to do to young people. he wanted to rape them and kill them. and isn't it interesting that here is a guy that gets a young
9:46 pm
woman that he answered the door apparently, in just a towel and she is creeped out by him. he lured her to his property under the guise of i need you to take a picture of a car in my junkyard in order to sell it and she ends up burned to death 20 feet from his house on the junkyard. all of the highest courts have agreed the case is solid and properly tried. and you can claim anything. but it is about facts. and if there are new facts here, a court can certainly make a decision to reopen. >> governor walker said he, and that's where they need to go, the governor, and before you petition to get someone pardoned, don't you have an on obligation to read the full transcript and take a deeper dive of your own. i'm not disparaging filmmakers.
9:47 pm
but before you ask for someone to be let out of prison, you bet are be damn sure you are in support of that. judge, good to see you. >> good to see you. >> she is the one who put bad guys in prison. we have the filmmakers on tomorrow. so we will talk about some of the issues. ahead, a woman convicted of killing her husband, certainly how it sounded on the tape, now has a shot at freedom. wait until you ♪ we do it for the ones who rise before it shines. the ones who labor for what they love. ♪ because at banquet we believe that every dollar should work as hard as the family that earned it. that's why we're making our meals better. like using 100% natural chicken breast in our chicken strips and adding real cream to our mashed potatoes. so now, there's more to love with banquet. now serving... a better banquet. get beautyrest, posturepedic,

unbelievably developments in the case of dahlia dip o lito. she was caught on camera by police hiring a hit man to kill her husband. that's how it looked. then faking tears. that's also how it looked. when confronted at a staged murder scene by the cops. she now claims the whole thing
9:51 pm
