6:00 pm
that should be interesting. no b.s. on this, okay. thanks for watching us tonight. please always remember. the spin stops right here. we're definitely looking out for you. breaking tonight, just hours after the end of the memorial day holiday, america's veterans in a political fight over millions in donations and the race for the white house. good evening, everyone, welcome to the kelly file. i'm meg ayn kelly. an epic news conference. mr. trump trying to put to rest lingering controversy over millions dollars in donations, raised for the men and women in america's armed forces. outside trump tower, a dozen veterans staged a protest against the billionaire republican front-runner. they are accusing him of using them as political props. but inside, standing on the stage behind mr. trump, were his own veteran supporters. >> i would never, ever in a
6:01 pm
million years put my name on a candidate that did not from his heart look me in the eye and tell me he's concerned about veterans. that's donald trump. i think the liberal media, and i've been dealing with you a long time, need to get your head out of your butt, focus on the real issues. what donald trump doesn't understand is he cannot buy the votes of veterans in this country. no matter how much he done aipts, he still is not standing for the values that veterans stand for. >> hillary clinton's team making in no secret they're trying to push this controversy to the voters. the campaign unleashing surrogates to highlight what they say are donald trump's past disparaging remarkings about veterans. in moments, we'll be joined by two of the veterans there today. one of whom spoke at the trump event. they have two very different takes on trump. first, we begin with political chief correspondent, carl. >> thanks, a very combative news conference today.
6:02 pm
this all goes back really to february when donald trump chose to skip a fox news debate and set up a time that he would instead hold a rally to raise money for veterans. he said it would be nice to raise about $1 million. back then, he said they would look for a number charities to be donating to. as the dollars started rolling in, it was much more than $1 million. ultimately, it got up to several campaign staffers and sometimes mr. trump himself said it was anywhere between 4, 5, 6 or maybe even more millions of dollars. and over time, reporters began to ask which charities got the money, how much, how were those charities selected, were they vetted or not, might be possibility of getting scammed by a bogus veterans organization. and the trump campaign was not forthcoming with very many answers. he blamed the media and said he'd been treated totally unfairly. $5.6 million he's collected. he said there was probably some more coming in. from the original list of about
6:03 pm
20 beneficiaries, it went up to more than 40 today. and campaign aides say in the last couple of weeks another million was all doled out. it's over. the money's been given often to charities. donald trump is now blaming the media and essentially saying what they were doing is unfair. the truth of the matter is the clinton campaign has been protesting and driving the matter in the press, saying it was unfair and trump has been stove piping the money and not making it available. the trump campaign argues they were vetting it and needed to make sure it goes to the right people at the right time and now that's been done. both campaigns use vets. notwithstanding their service and patriotic efforts for the country there are plenty of liberal service vets, plenty of conservative vets and they're picking up sides right now. >> carl, thank you. a retired u.s. marine corps first sergeant, republican, new hampshire state representative and veteran adviser to the trump campaign.
6:04 pm
raymond curtis is a decorated disabled combat iraq war veteran and part of the vets versus hate movement. thank you guys, for your service and for being here. >> thank you for your service, by the way. >> thank you very much. >> let me start with you, representative. you were there on behalf of trump today. speak to the reporting by the "washington post" and the ap that said trump it not cut those checks, at least half of them, until the past week, after "the washington post" started pressing for where the money had gone. >> right, first, i want to clarify something. i was there on behalf of veterans, okay, who were in need, and donald trump has to be one who supports those veterans. i want to clarify that. as far as the money being sent in today, you know, it takes time to vet. in new hampshire, we have attorney general who is constantly going after veteran groups that are raising money to help veterans. 20 cents of the dollar goes to the veterans. there's so many scams going on there. so it takes time when you're dealing with that.
6:05 pm
>> are you suggesting then all these veterans groups, nearly half of them were just cleared coincidentally in the past week since "the washington post" submitted its report? >> what we're doing, we're nitty-gritty, we're picking and choosing. >> it speaks to honesty -- >> we have one of the organizations that trump claims to have fully vetted and donated money to. you can check yourself right now, google, the ratings. >> they have an "f" rating. but apparently that was because they were harassing people to donate and they said that was just our telemarketers and we replaced that telemarketer. >> also 75% of donations goes to something other than veterans. so the 20 cents a dollar you're trying to avoid -- >> he was going to give the money. he was going to give some portion of millions, some millions of dollars to these vets. it does take some time to, you know, vet them. >> absolutely. i think the main point here, for all of us on the grassroots
6:06 pm
organization to make a statement and bring light to something not organized by anyone except for alex mccoy, the main point is not about the money. we don't care. you can write us a check for $30 million and give it to a bunch of veterans. that is very wonderful. i am very happy my fellow brothers and sisters who served in the armed forces is going to get that. however, now the issue is transparency. now the issue is honesty. now the issue is integrity. selfless service. a lot of these things are core values of the military that he is not representing. >> trump and his campaign said they had raised $6 million after they had this event and then they don't even have that now. >> i brought in a list. you know, i've done many fund-raisers back then. >> i can tell you about the money -- >> can you take a break there, young man? thank you. >> go ahead. >> i've been to many places where the money -- until the checks clear or the money comes in that people donated on the
6:07 pm
phone, that's it. >> right -- >> let me -- >> -- pure coincidence that half of it came in in the past week after "the washington post" did its report, isn't that stretching it a bit? >> we're trying to grab on to things here. this is what they're talking about with hillary clinton -- >> he was out there today -- >> absolutely. >> and you say he's affiliated with hillary. >> yes. >> and her campaign admitted they tried to promote this protest. >> yes. >> are you affiliated with her? did you reach out to the campaign? >> there were many campaigns reached out to by the organizers to get information. >> were they using you as props? >> absolutely not. we started this and we organized this and i worked with perry and alex and so i have this all internalized. all you have to do is simply look very shortly into this and you will quickly see these allegations are untrue and what -- >> but you're a democrat, you're a republican. okay, but what is it about trump that you object to? because, you know, he is whatever you can query the
6:08 pm
reasons it took him so long, bub he is getting this money to veterans. >> what is it about trump donating? or what is it about trump in general? >> was there a moment that -- >> absolutely. for a very long time, i tried to stay out of any discussions about this. i don't like to influence other people and how they vote. i like for them to be able to find their own ways and it's just something i fundamentally disagree with. when trump made his statement that he would target the families of terrorist cells, innocent civilians, it gave me pause. i thought, wait, though, let's give them a chance to rescind that. he stood by it. he stood by it in the debate. i went from i'm not going to engage to i must engage. >> quick word. >> he took a personal issue, used veterans as political pawns, instead of talking about the veterans funds that are getting out there. >> -- for speaking out -- >> in the trenches that veterans
6:09 pm
need, one dollar is one dollar more that go to veterans issues. thank god we got somebody like trump. >> great to see you both, appreciate it. the republican front-runner was dealing with more today. he was defending his attack on a federal judge. u.s. district court judge gonzalo is presiding over the lawsuit against trump university. a now defunct real estate seminar set up by the candidate about a decade ago. during a campaign speech friday, trump spent more than ten minutes hammering this judge. here is a bit of those remarks. >> have a judge who is a hater of donald trump, a hater. he's a hater. his name is gonzolo cerial. and he is not doing the right thing. i figured what the hell, why not talk about it for two minutes. the judge was appointed by barack obama, federal judge.
6:10 pm
frankly, he should recuse himself. the judge who happens to be we believe mexican, which is great, i think that is fine. they ought to look into this judge because it is a total disgrace, okay. but we'll come back in november -- wouldn't that be wild if i'm president, that i come back to do a civil case? >> trace gallagher has more. trace. >> the 381 pages documents related to trump university that were unsealed and made public by a san diego federal judge are essentially playbooks that detail how trump university was run. everything from convincing prospective students to pay up to $35,000 to enroll to teaching them how to use tax breaks and financial shelters to maximize profits. the school's real estate training was said to be blessed by donald trump himself. in fact, trump claims he personally chose the instructors but later in a deposition admitted he didn't pick them, in
6:11 pm
fact, didn't even know their names. trump and the school are being sued by a number of students who claim they were defrauded. as you heard in the tirade, trump believes the judge is giving him a raw deal it and the trump campaign is now actively supporting the claim of judicial bias. watch. >> i think what's really interesting about this particular judge, as mr. trump refers to him as a trump hater, he even mentions on his judicial questionnaire he was a larosa lawyers associate member. an organization that has been out there organizing these anti-trump protesters with the mexican flag. they are pushing it -- >> the judge has not responded to mr. trump's tirade but did release a statement saying the defense had not met the bar to keep the documents out of the public eye, saying, quoting, the defendant became the front-runner for the nomination in the 2016 presidential race and has placed the integrity of these court proceedings at issue. the trial date is scheduled for
6:12 pm
november 28th. and trump's lawyers say the gop nominee will testify. of course, by then, he could be the president-elect, megyn. >> all right, trace, thank you. an important clarification on what you just heard there about katrina piercing's allegations about this judge. joining me, trump supporter and attorney david wool and ben shapiro, editor in chief at daily good to see you both. that allegation by katrina pierson is wrong and i want to correct the record. larosa lawyers association is completely different from the group that's organizing the anti-trump protests, which is national council on larosa. they're not affiliated and they're not the same. that was an error by katrina. having said that, i'll ask you, ben, about the appropriateness of going after a sitting federal court judge and mentioning the fact that, quote, he is mexican, also wrong, he is american, he is not mexican.
6:13 pm
>> no, he was born in indiana, but typical trump. it's not a surprise trump is going after people he feels victimized him. this is what he does. to go after the judge on the base of his ethnicity is bizarre. given the fact, again, his ethnicity has nothing to do with the case and demonstrates for trump who has plenty of grounds to go after this judge, he's an obama appointee, the fact he has relationings with groups that trump finds unpleasant, all those are fine, but to go after his ethnicity that demonstrates that for trump there's some bizarre question between the ethnicity of the person and the ideology the person holds. i don't know why him being mexican would be relevant. especially when he's not from mexico. >> david, why would it be? >> i think it's a non sequitur. >> why does he keep mentioning it? over and over on this judge? >> yep, i think his ethnicity is hispanic, he's from indiana. non sequitur. the issue of going after this judge, though, i got to say, how
6:14 pm
is this any different than barack obama in 2010 at the state of the union when he ripped supreme court justice sitting right in front of him -- >> also totally out of line. out of line. >> -- he bullied them right in front of them. you know what -- >> so are you justifying that behavior by pointing to other bad behavior? >> i'm just saying -- bill burton, obama's press secretary at the time, you got to listen to this, he said, i'm quoting, one of the great things about our democracy is powerful members of government at high levels can disagree in public and in private and this is one of those instances. this is all it is, he's got the first amendment right. >> really, really? >> it's frustrating him because i reviewed this case -- >> i reviewed this case too. >> it should have been dismissed a long time ago on summary judgment motion no question about it. >> ben is not a lawyer. david and i are lawyers. i disagree with you on that. >> actually, i am a lawyer. >> i'm sorry, ben, i didn't know
6:15 pm
that. the court of appeals upheld this. it wasn't all this judge. trump will get his day in court. but to go after the judge as a, quote, mexican, and hater, takes it to a different level, ben. >> well, absolutely and the fact that trump defenders have to rely on barack obama was a bad guy, therefore, if our guy does the exact same thing, it's just doubly as awesome -- >> no, that's not why. >> -- trump campaign, okay so you tell me, david, why is it better that trump did it now that barack obama did? i thought we were running against obama? >> the point is, he said immediately after, i love the mexican people, i've got millions of mexican supporters. he clarified it. don't take it out of context. the majority -- >> i mention it because i want to take this opportunity to express my love for the mexicans. come on. >> you know what, sometimes you have a slip of the tongue and i submit to you -- >> he does it repeatedly! that's the thing that's so crazy about it. don't know why he's doing this.
6:16 pm
listen, nobody gives trump a hard time. he says, i don't like this judge. i'm going to win this case. great, fine. what we're debating here is taking it a step further, personalizing, going after the guy's ethnicity and he does it every time. >> you know something, he is a member -- maybe he misconstrued that membership in the larosa lawyers association. i don't know. a lot of speech gone after him because of his border policy. i don't know if he felt this judge should recuse himself because of those issues. >> he doesn't need to recuse himself. >> he demand s the person be removed -- >> no, no, no, right after mr. trump complained last week about the judge, the judge releases the document also metly there after. i submit to you, does that create an appearance of impropriety? it may be up to trumpance
6:17 pm
lawyers to file a motion for recusal -- >> all right, so basically you insult the judge and then when the judge does something he's perfectly allowed to do under the law and there's a motion before the court in order to release these documents. so you create the issue and then -- >> hold on, let ben finish. >> okay, so you create the issue and then the only solution is for trump to get what he wants? there's a whole slip of the tongue nonsense. when you tongue keeps slipping in the same direction, there's a little bit of intentionality to it. >> okay, i leave you at home with that mental image. great debate. with trump now having enough delegates to be the republican nominee, there are new questions about what that means for other republican races and whether this man will still be the majority leader, senator mcconnell join us next. plus, one of america's best-loved journalists is being
6:18 pm
accused of deceptive editing to make gun groups look bad. and then the kelly file exclusive. your first look at the documentary on hillary clinton and the democratic party tonight. >> one of the goals of the democratic party is to steal the most valuable thing the world has ever produced. what if their plan is to steal america? when my doctor told me i have age-related macular degeneration, amd we came up with a plan to help reduce my risk of progression. and everywhere i look... i'm reminded to stick to my plan. including preservision areds 2. my doctor said preservision areds 2 has the exact nutrient formula that the national eye institute recommends to help reduce the risk of progression
6:19 pm
of moderate to advanced amd... after 15 years of clinical studies. preservision areds 2. because my eyes are everything. i tabut with my back paines, i couldn't sleep and get up in time. then i found aleve pm. aleve pm is the only one to combine a safe sleep aid plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. i'm back. aleve pm for a better am.
6:20 pm
you're all set to book a flight using your airline credit card miles. and surprise! those seats sometimes cost a ridiculous number of miles, making it really hard to book the flight you want. luckily, there's a better way... with the capital one venture card. with venture, you'll earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, every day. and when you're ready to travel, just book the flight you want, on any airline, then use your miles to cover the cost. now you're getting somewhere. what's in your wallet?
6:21 pm
rethink. reimagine. because right here, right now. it's time to take a closer look at botox® cosmetic, the only fda approved treatment for the temporary improvement of both moderate to severe frown lines and crow's feet. see what real results can really look like. so talk to your doctor about botox® cosmetic. and make it part of what you do for you. the effects of botox® cosmetic, may spread hours to weeks after injection, causing serious symptoms. alert your doctor right away, as difficulty swallowing, speaking, breathing, eye problems, or muscle weakness can be a sign of a life-threathening condition. do not take botox® cosmetic if you have a skin infection. side effects may include allergic reactions, injection site pain, eyelid drooping and swelling. tell your doctor about your medical history, muscle or nerve conditions and medications including
6:22 pm
botulinum toxins, as these may increase the risk of serious side effects. look me... in the eyes... and see what's possible... botox® cosmetic. it's time to take a closer look. breaking tonight, with donald trump all but locked in now as the republican nominee, there's a growing debate about what this means for other republican races particularly in the u.s. senate. 24 of the 54 republican senate seats are up for grabs and will share the ballot in november with trump. some media outlets are suggesting that's a problem for republicans. from "usa today," down ballot gop candidates fear trump shipwreck. from "the washington post," want to see a gop senator duck and run? ask about trump. the folks at the week made their conclusion obvious when they wrote, why donald trump will doom republicans' senate majority. joining me, leader of the
6:23 pm
republican-controlled senate mitch mcconnell of kentucky. he has a new book out called "the long game" and it's fascinating. great to see you, thank you for being here. so your take on that, disastrous predictions down ballot if trump, when trump is the nominee in november? >> i don't think so. regardless of what happens at the top of the ticket. two nominees here who we know for sure are very unpopular. i think neither one of them can count on a kind of barack obama '08 landslide in which your party sweeps the house and the senate. and they're saying, not only are you president, you can do anything you want to. >> nobody's get a mandate? >> i don't think so. we do have a lot of exposure, 24 members up. but they're very popular incumbents. people like kelly ayotte and toomey and others. >> the number one thing you hear people talk about when they say they support donald trump but they don't really like donald
6:24 pm
trump. supreme court vacancies. with the scalia seat. you've said you're not even going to give merit garland a look if it's clear, you know, leading up to november, hillary is, you know, prevailing over trump or she's already won, you're not going to give marric garland a look? >> no vacancy on the supreme court occurring in the middle of an election year has been filled in 80 years. you had to go back to 1888 -- >> you could have gone back to -- >> no, no, this is the principle. does barack obama get to fill the seat, tipping the court to the left, for the next generation? >> what if she's the president-elect? >> let me finish, on the way out the door, a lame duck? no. let the american people speak. let them decide who they want to make this appointment. there's no chance that if
6:25 pm
hillary clinton's elected she'll pick anybody to the right of garland. he's not a moderate. barack obama declaring someone a moderate doesn't make him a moderate. you're going to get a liberal security nominee if hillary clinton wins. that's what we got about barack obama. >> so you're ready for that? >> if trump wins, he's already put out a list of people i think are outstanding, currently serving in the federal judiciary. that reason alone is -- determines support. >> let's talk about the book, "the long game," it's a mememoi talking about your childhood battle with polio. and how roger ayles, our boss here at fox news, was really responsible for your entire political career. >> the most competitive guy i've ever known and you see that here at fox. without his creativity, he was doing the commercials in my first long shot race. here's the situation. it was july. the election was in november. i was 30 points behind. we had a strategy meeting and i
6:26 pm
said, roger, is anybody this far behind this late ever won? and he said, not that i can recall. but he was so competitive. so we came up with kind of a needle in the haystack issue. my opponent was missing votes on the floor of the senate to make speeches for money. roger created what we call bloodhound ads which had a bunch of hounds with the hunter out looking to get him back to work. it captured the imagination of people in my state. it woke the race up. and i ended up winning by one vote a precinct. one vote a precinct. what is even more remarkable, that is the day of the reagan sweep. he was carrying 49 out of 50 states. the guy roger ayles helped me defeat was the only incumbent to lose that day. >> how about that? >> i do indeed owe my first
6:27 pm
senate race to roger. without him, i'd be practicing law in louisville, kentucky. >> given the aproppal rating, who knows. >> well, lawyers don't rate that high either. >> great to see you, sir. good luck. well, media outlets are now attacking donald trump for how he treated reporters at his news conference today. brit hume has some thoughts next. plus, there's now a criminal investigation into the parents of the 4-year-old who fell into that gorilla pen at the cincinnati zoo. we will weigh in on what happens when something bad happens to your family. shoots and burns its way into your day, i hear you. to everyone with this pain that makes oinary tasks extraordinarily painful, i hear you. make sure your doctor hears you too! i hear you because i was there when my dad suffered with diabetic nerve pain. if you have diabetes and burning, shooting pain in your feet or hands, don't suffer in silence! step on up and ask your doctor
6:28 pm
about diabetic nerve pain. tell 'em cedric sent you.
6:29 pm
this is your daughter. and she just got this. ooh boy. but, you've got hum. so you can set this. and if she drives like this, you can tell her to drive more like this. because you'll get this. you can even set boundaries for so if she should be here, but instead goes here, here, or here. you'll know. so don't worry, mom. because you put this, in here. hum by verizon. the technology designed to make your car
6:30 pm
smarter, safer and more connected. put some smarts in your car. our customer is a our 21-year-old female. heavily into basketball. wait. data just changed... now she's into disc sports. ah, no she's not. since when? since now. she's into tai chi. she found disc sports too stressful. hold on. let me ask you this... what's she gonna like six months from now? who do we have on aerial karate? steve. steve. steve. and alexis. uh, no. just steve. just steve. just steve. live business, powered by sap. when you run live, you run simple. when they thought they should westart saving for retirement.le then we asked some older people when they actually did start saving. this gap between when we should start saving and when we actually do is one of the reasons why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement. just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future. if we all start saving a little more today, we'll all be better prepared tomorrow.
6:31 pm
prudential. bring your challenges. breaking tonight, new reaction to donald trump's combative news conference at trump tower today. mr. trump defensed his handling of the donations to veterans. but then he turned his fire on the media and did not hold back. calling out reporters who were sitting just feet away from him. listen. >> you know my opinion of the media is very low. i think the media is, frankly, made up of people that in many cases, not in all cases, are not good people. i didn't want the credit for it, but it was very unfair that the
6:32 pm
press treated us so badly. i like scrutiny but you know what when i raised money -- excuse me, excuse me, i've watched you on television, you're a real beauty. what i don't want is to have raised millions of dollars, have people say, like this sleazy guy right over here from abc, he's a sleaze in my book. you're a sleaze because you know the facts and you know the facts well -- >> is this what it is going to be like -- >> yeah, it is. >> brit hume. you know, did trump basically say this is who i am, get used to it? >> well, the one who will have to get used to is trump himself if he gets elected because this scrutiny of the donations he claimed on the very night of the event, back in january, remember, he said on that night that he had already raised $6 million. and then later on, he said it again. and he said it as kind of an applaud line at that event. so for him to say, as he did
6:33 pm
today, that, we, he wasn't taking credit for it, he certainly took credit for it on that first night. >> we have that. now today he says he never wanted credit for raising this money. listen. >> if the press writes false stories like they did where i wanted to keep a low profile. i didn't want the credit for raising all this money for the vets. i wasn't looking for the credit. by the way, more money is coming in. wasn't looking for the credit. but i had no choice but to do this. because the press was saying i didn't raise any money for them. we held something in lieu of the debate. i said, let's have a rally for the veterans. we raised in one hour $6 million. is that good? we raised in one hour, listen to this, $6 million. okay. >> just one thing on the vets, during the last debate, i raised $6 million for the vets. i will tell you something -- >> well, there you go. he took credit in that last
6:34 pm
sound bite. he said "i raised." so he certainly did take credit for it. and then of course it didn't appear for a time that anybody could account for that, including the trump campaign, which had difficulty saying where the money was, how much had been raised. now today we got a full accounting of how much money there was. it might become that large a number. and he said set forth all the directions in which the money had been sent, which all appears so far to be on the up and up. why he would be so angry about people raising questions about a claim that he made, is strikes me this is what journalists do. this is what we do. we ask questions about the claims politicians make, calling
6:35 pm
them names in a way i've never seen a presidential candidate do in my memory. we know that behind the scenes the presidents and presidential candidates fume about media coverage. they all do it and they always have. you rarely seen it in this way, by someone who takes it all so personally. if he has that frame of mind as president, he will have a terribly hard time. >> you say professional skeptics. i say cynical mofos. six one way, hatlf a dozen the other. speaking of the press, katie couric, her documentary "under the gun," has been found to have had some selective editing in it. she came out and said she regrets it now, that it was misleading and she didn't raise her concerns more vigorously. >> she waited so long. when you see what the documentary showed, which was a question posed by her to a group of the people she was doing this
6:36 pm
about, and they -- the gun rights advocates. and they sit there as far as the documentary showed in stoney silence. apparently stumped by her question. that didn't happen. this wasn't a matter of something being edited out. what was editing, edited in was the media silence. the documentary, that piece of the documentary was a falsehood. at first, she defended it. why or how she could defend it, i don't understand that. i've known her a long time. abc news, a million years ago. i can't understand it. but what that did was it fed the controversy, which then dragged on for days. until now, finally, she properly apologized for what happened, which was pretty blatant piece of editing. or insertion, i should say. >> now they're admitting it was inserted after the fact. big news today, a possible
