1:00 am
that's it for us. "special report" is next. president obama tries to bridge the gap between his support of the black lives matter movement and his reaction to the murder of five dallas police officers by an african-american sniper. this is "special report." good evening. i'm shana breeman in for bret baier. last week's ambush killing of five police officers. at an interfaith service, president obama insisted blacks and minorities are treated differently by many police. fox team coverage. we look at the political
1:01 am
implications of the president's stance but begin with casey steigal in dallas tonight. >> reporter: good morning, shannon. the white house says president barack obama was up late last night, consulting scripture, to prepare for his remarks today. >> we know the suffering produces perseverance. >> reporter: words of comfort from president barack obama in dallas. mr. obama, accompanied by vice president joe and jill biden and the first lady, telling the crowd of nearly 2,000 how the american people stand with texans in this dark time. >> the pain we feel may not soon pass but my faith tells me that they did not die in vain. i believe our sorrow can make us a better country. i believe our righteous anger can be transformed into more justice and more peace.
1:02 am
>> reporter: the president arrived in dallas, joined by texas senator ted cruz on board air force one. as his motorcade made its way from the airport to the memorial site, dozens of onlookers lined the streets. it was standing room only at the symphony center. the only empty seats? these five, draped in police uniforms, representing each of the fallen officers. dallas police chief, david brown and dart police chief james stiller received standing ovations from the crowd. >> with their deaths, we have lost so much. we are grief stricken, heartbroken and forever grateful. >> reporter: former president george w. bush and first lady, laura, were among the long list of dignitaries in attendance. in a powerful show solidarity, law enforcement agencies from around the state made the drive here to say good-bye. the memorial site is less than one mile from where the shots
1:03 am
rang out during a black lives matter protest on the streets of downtown. today as the president spoke, the fbi and atf agents continued producing that 20-square block crime scene. officials say they've collected dozens of shell casings and at least two weapons used by the shooter. one of the biggest mysteries with the investigation so far is how the killer was able to stockpile weapons and ammo at his mother's home where he lived without anyone noticing. >> some of the questions we might not ever know the answer to. we'll continue to ask ourselves the tough questions to make sure we don't leave anything uninvestigated. >> reporter: funerals begin tomorrow. all five officers who lost their lives will be laid to rest and honored in separate, private ceremonies not open to the public. shannon? >> reporter: casey stegall, thank you very much. president obama is calling the slaughter of the dallas officers an act of racial
1:04 am
hatred. correspondent kevin corke is at the white house tonight. >> reporter: good evening to you, shannon. even the availability of guns all touched on in today's remarks in dallas, given by the president of the united states. now, you probably know this. on ten previous occasions, the president has traveled to an american community rocked by a mass shooting, ten times the pain, suffering, heartache. but today the 11th time, was different. >> we ask the police to do too much and we ask too little of ourselves. >> reporter: thunderous applause in dallas for the president's remarks, meant to advance much more than just hope and healing for a texas city torn apart by a racist gunman. >> the overwhelming majority of police officers do an incredibly hard and dangerous job fairly and professionally. they are deserving of our respect and not our scorn.
1:05 am
>> reporter: an obvious and solemn show of solidarity for those sworn to serve and protect. but in what's become, i would say, a fairly familiar pattern, shannon, the president couldn't resist a chance to talk about guns in the wake of the shooting. >> we flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book. >> reporter: you can almost tell from the tone that the president's remarks reflect a change or perhaps a shift in tone from the white house, a more obvious embrace, certainly public embrace from the policing community. yesterday's two-hour meeting at the white house with law enforcement officials. >> we'll take him at his word. and, you know, we are all in this together. we're not going to solve it without the president. and he sure as heck isn't going to solve the problems without us. >> reporter: president even said himself today, shannon, i see the inadequacy of my words, meaning sometimes it's not what you say but how you say it, especially if you're going to try to communicate your support
1:06 am
of the law enforcement community. shannon? >> we'll talk about it with the panel. kevin corke live at the white house. thank you, kevin. in america's election headquarters tonight, new democratic power couple. senator bernie sanders is now endorsing hillary clinton after failing to defeat her in the presidential primaries. but to many, today's announcement had the feeling of an arranged political marriage between two camps still not totally comfortable with each other. fox news correspondent jennifer griffin has the story tonight from new castle, new hampshire. >> reporter: this is not how the revolution was supposed to end. it took bernie sanders five weeks, but he finally endorsed hillary clinton in new hampshire. >> i have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why i am endorsing hillary clinton and why she must become our next
1:07 am
president. >> reporter: bernie had vowed to campaign all the way to the convention, threatening to contest the outcome. he claimed the system was rigged. his tone, very different today than just weeks ago. >> i don't think that you are qualified, if you get $15 million from wall street through your super pac. i know her and all of you know her as one of the most intelligent people that we have ever met. >> reporter: in case any of his 13 million supporters didn't hear him loud and clear, he put it this way and was greeted with both cheers and boos. >> secretary clinton has won the democratic nominating process and i congratulate her for that. and i intend to do everything i can to make certain she will be the next president of the united states. >> i can't help but reflect how
1:08 am
much more enjoyable this election is going to be now that we are on the same side! >> reporter: sanders beat clinton by 22 points in the new hampshire primary. there were moments today when the bernie supporters seemed louder than clinton, many remain ing dejected. >> there are people that don't plan to vote for hillary clinton, but the vast majority realize there are bigger issues at stake here. >> while donald trump is busy insulting mexicans and muslims and women and african-americans and our veterans, hillary clinton understands that our diversity is one of our greatest strengths. >> reporter: just moments after sanders endorsed clinton, we learned that elizabeth warren will be speaking on the first night of the convention. some say that means she's no longer on the vp short list. other campaign sources tell us
1:09 am
she still is in the mix. we learned that admiral james stavridis is on the possible list for vp pick. he served under donald rumsfeld in the iraq war. >> loretta lynch was grilled by a house committee for accepting a recommendation against charges from the head of the fbi. chief intelligence correspondent katherine harris shows us what happened on capitol hill. >> your refusal to answer questions regarding one of the most important investigations of someone who seeks to serve in the highest office in this land is an abdication of your duty. >> reporter: clearly irked by
1:10 am
her nonresponsive answers to direct questions about her decision to accept the fbi's recommendation against criminal charges of hillary clinton's mishandling of classified information. >> i refer you to director comey's investigation for that. >> reporter: also refusing to discuss the laws involved. >> the information the team provides to me on this or any other case has to be given in a zone of confidentiality. >> reporter: lynch declined to say whether she reviewed clinton's fbi interview before closing the case. >> i determine identity would accept the recommendation of the team. >> i asked my staff to count the number of times today you would say i can't answer that question or refuse to give an appropriate response. it's happened 74 times so far. >> reporter: she argued her tarmac mite meeting with bill clinton was not cause for a special prosecutor. >> there was not any discussion about prosecution or investigation. >> have you had conversation with either individual about your possibly serving in a
1:11 am
hillary clinton administration? >> no, i've had no conversation. >> you can't say i'm the attorney general and i decide yet i'm going to take their recommendation even before they make their recommendations. >> i wanted to make it clear that any conversation i had with the former president would not have any impact on the team. >> i think your actions made it worse. i really do. i think a lot of people already think that there are two systems, as many have talked about. one for we, the people. and a different one, entirely different one for the politically connected. >> reporter: while republicans grew frustrated, democrats focused on gun violence. >> it's a reckless, legislative joy ride designed to crash and burn. >> apparently secretary hillary clinton's e-mail takes precedence over gun violence. >> the director of national intelligence, james clapper, top intelligence officer sent a house to the house speaker confirming that the nominee automatically qualifies for briefings and that mishandling
1:12 am
of classified information in the past are not disqualifiers. >> catherine herridge on the hill. thanks, catherine. still awaiting word for donald trump's choice for a running mate. one of the people supposedly still in the hunt. more tonight from indiana. >> reporter: mainstay for donald trump throughout his campaign. now he says he's working for an experienced politician to help unite the country. all eyes and indicators point to governor mike pence. house speaker paul ryan put his stamp of approval on pence today. >> i have the highest regard for mike. personal friend of ours and mine. i'm just as anxious as you are. i'm going to withhold any comment in the the presumptive nominee makes his choice. >> reporter: trump's family is urging him to pick among pence, new jersey governor chris christie and former house speaker newt gingrich. doubts about christee center on
1:13 am
the bridge scandal and his polarizing personality. >> my guess is you'll hear tomorrow or thursday. certainly no later than friday. >> fox news and gingrich agreed to suspend due to the intense media speculation about gingrich's potential selection, we felt it best to halt his contributor role on the network to avoid all conflicts of interest that may arise. >> he said he would decide by the end of the week and make it public. i think he understands that he wants his vice presidential candidate to be known before the weekend begins. >> reporter: senator jeff sessions of alabama and retired lieutenant general michael flynn both remain on the short list. insiders say they are less likely to be chosen. while trump relentlessly criticizes hillary clinton as a corrupt, incompetent liar, it was not how he felt between 2004 and 2008 when he recorded a daily syndicated radio report
1:14 am
called trumped. >> i know her and she would make a good president or a good vice president. >> reporter: in a beef with supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg who said if trump wins, quote, i can't imagine what this place would be. i can't imagine what the country would be. trump called it a disgrace and said she should apologize. self proclaimed outsider, trump loves beef with the supreme court, congress or republican national committee who is going to nominate him just next week. yet all of the candidates, including mike pence on his short list have spent most of their lives in government. shannon? >> we'll see what the combination winds up being. carl, thanks so much. let's take a closer look at indiana governor mike pence and what he could bring to a trump ticket. senior national correspondent john roberts. >> mike pence has the sort of political pedigree that donald trump could surely use. four years as governor of
1:15 am
indiana, 12 as a congressman. he knows his way around government. he gives trump plenty of cover on the right. >> good communicator. believes in the fundamental principles that the republican party are about and the principles that made our country special. >> reporter: as governor, he signed the religious freedom law that made changes amid a criticism. he signed new abortion restrictions. in congress, he voted against bailouts for wall street and the auto industry and supported tax cuts in the balanced budget amendment. he voted for the iraq war but against setting a date for withdrawal. he opposes same-sex marriage and civil unions and in 2014 pulled indiana out of common core. >> i got folks back home who tell me i'm a conservative and i can't vote for trump x, y, z. i try to convince them it's still better than clinton. mike pence might get him across the finish line. >> democrats honing their steel
1:16 am
in the event pence gets picked, pointing out facing a tough battle for re-election at home. >> what he did in indiana was so offensive to the lgbt community and so backfired in his own state that one of the things you're seeing here, john, is that mike pence wants to be picked as donald trump's vice presidential candidate because he's in such deep water politically at home. >> reporter: in fact, it's a real question whether pence could win a second term. may poll showed him four points ahead of democrat john greg. conservatives who oppose trump say picking pence won't change their mind about not voting for the nominee. >> i think mike pence is probably the most credible choice trump could go with. i don't think it's someone that trump will actually listen to. i mean, donald trump at this point is short of picking jesus christ. i'm not sure who he could pick. i would certainly support him. >> one way or another, we'll know by friday if pence is the choice. under indiana law, he can't run for vice president and governor
1:17 am
at the same time. he must tell the state by the end of the week what he intends to do. >> john roberts, thank you so much. tomorrow bret baier sits down with the presumptive republican presidential candidate, donald trump. tune in 6:00 pm eastern here on fox. up next, did the obama administration use your tax dollars to try to bring down israel's prime minister? first your fox affiliates around the country covering tonight. wsbn in miami overturned tanker truck catching fire and snarling traffic this morning. that vehicle was carrying thousands of gallons of an unspecified type of fuel. the driver escaped without serious injuries. fox 9 in the twin cities, the worst tornado damage he has ever seen in his city. up to 15 homes were damaged but no one was injured. at least two twisters is touched down in the central part of the state monday night. live look at san diego from fox 5. big story there tonight, major league baseball all-star game will be played at petco park, home of the padres.

fox news alert. new questions about the obama administration's use of your tax dollars on an organization which tried to defeat israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. how a push for peace turned into political poison. >> reporter: for 14 months ending in november 2014, the u.s. state department granted nearly $350,000 to the israeli and palestinian arms of the advocacy group one voice. their goal? to support peace negotiations between israelis and palestinians. shortly after the u.s. government grant ended, the one voice movement absorbed and funded an israeli group named victory 15. its goal, an israeli political campaign to elect, quote, anybody but bibi netanyahu, a report by senate subcommittee on investigations. >> what it did probably was to make it more difficult to come together after the election and continue to build on the
1:23 am
relationship between israel and the united states. >> reporter: the report finds, quote, one voice used the campaign infrastructure and resources built, in part, with state department grants funds to support v15. the subcommittee said it found no evidence one voice spent u.s. grant money to influence the 2015 israeli elections and, quote, fully complied with the terms of its state department grant. however, quote, despite one voice's previous political activism in the 2013 israeli election, the state department failed to take any steps to guard against the risk that one voice could engage in political activities using state-funded grassroots campaign infrastrkture after the grant period. the report also charges the state department was unable to produce all documents the subcommittee requested because it failed to retain complete e-mail records. in a statement the subcommittee's top democrat, claire mccaskill says while this report shows no wrongdoing by the administration and should put to rest such allegations, it certainly highlights deficiencies in the department's
1:24 am
policies that should be addressed in order to best address taxpayer dollars. state department's response? it followed guidelines. >> the report makes clear that there's no evidence that one voice spent state department grant funds to fund the election. >> no u.s. government grant money funded a netanyahu campaign. that shows a problem within the state department to have allowed this type of result. shannon? >> thank you, rich. two commuter trains collided head on in italy. italian officials are professors promising a full investigation into the crash. at least two passengers were pulled alive from the crumpled wreckage by rescue crews. ruling dismissing its claims to large swaths of the south china sea. beijing government says the decision in the case brought by the philippines is null and

we are getting closer tonight to finding out what the republican party will officially stand for this election season.
1:30 am
chief washington correspondent james rosen is in cleveland tonight with the look at the gop platform. good evening, james. >> reporter: shannon, good evening. one of the most controversial elements of donald trump's campaign thus far, his proposal to build a wall along the u.s./mexico border, was adopted by the republican party's platform committee without a single word of debate. the committee's 112 members, one man and one woman from each of the 50 states in the u.s. territories will now submit their draft to the full convention next week for a ratifying vote there. one plank introduced by chris kobach, secretary of state for kansas, calls for building a wall along the entirety of the mexican border, sufficient to stop vehicular and pedestrian traffic. it also calls for a mandatory five-year prison sentence for any deportee who illegally re-enters the u.s. marriage defined here as a union between one man and one woman with another sentence reading,
1:31 am
quote, children raised in a traditional two-parent household tend to be physically and emotionally healthiehealthier, likely to use drugs and alcohol, engage in crime or become pregnant outside of marriage. jerusalem is eternal and indivisable capital. and calls the boycott divest and sanctions movement anti-semitic. u.s. ambassador and personnel were left without adequate backup halfway across the world in benghazi. >> being able to have opportunity, those are the things that the republican party stands for and those are the things that i think she likes and agrees with. >> now the full committee wrapped up its work a few minutes ago. the last debate centered on
1:32 am
abortion. sandy mcdade of louisiana told her delegates, just like we name radical islamic terrorism, we need to name planned parenthood. as it happened those word does not appear in the draft. that will be sent next week to the delegates. shannon? >> thank you, james. >> the man in charge of security at next week's republican convention say he and his people are ready for anything. joseph clancy says 73 different agencies will make up the security force with the top priority being everyone's safety. >> we have been planning for close to a year, tabletops, tactical groups coming together to train in one location. the planning that we've done puts us in a very good position to be very successful this week. >> cleveland police chief calvin williams says convention security has been affected by the dallas ambush but that he and his people are ready to go. president obama goes to dallas as the city mourns five murdered police officers. we'll have a look at how the president is balancing this with
1:33 am
his support of the black lives matter movement. the panel joins me when we return.
1:34 am
1:35 am
1:36 am
1:37 am
1:38 am
the overwhelming majority of police officers do an incredibly hard and dangerous job fairly and professionally. they are deserving of our respect and not our scorn. when anyone, no matter how good their intentions may be, paints all police as biased or bigoted, we are undermine those officers we depend on for our safety. we ask the police to do too much and we ask too little of ourselves. let's bring in our panel. that was the president today speaking at the memorial service for the five murdered dallas police officers. joined now by syndicated
1:39 am
columnist george will, laura ingraham and editor for the washington post. george, it was the most full throated defbs i've heard the president speaking on behalf of talking about their bravery, dedication and the respect they're due. >> he got off to a bad start as president on this subject. six months into his term, there was that episode in cambridge, massachusetts, between the cambridge police and gates, a friend of his, african-american, professor of harvard and the president immediately said the police had acted stupidly. presidents -- all presidents, i guess, feel obliged to weigh in on almost everything that happens in america. sometimes they over do it and do it without information. however, in this case, the president, as he ruefully said, has had a lot of practice at this and practice, if not making perfect, makes him very skillful at t i thought he did a good job today. he had the difficult task of
1:40 am
following chief brown, who is a perfect master -- something wonderful about the social soil of this country that we produce people like that on occasions like this. >> uh-huh. he actually -- chief brown brought a smile to a lot of people's faces, sort of in a fun way talking about his own efforts trying to get dates as a teenager and using lyrics of song s he thought was important as he did in a very moving way today. >> george is absolutely right. out of the carnage and utter despair we've seen in race relations the last five, six years in this country, it seems to have gotten worse in many ways. to see someone like chief brown come out of this -- he is in deep pain. these are men he knew personally, knows their wives, knows their kids. and then he gets up there before the entire nation and acts -- conducts himself with such grace and such poise. a man of deep faith, a man of
1:41 am
great discernment. and yet we kind of separate ourselves, all of us, from those men and women who are doing these tasks every day that keep the order in society. and he said this yesterday, the day before. people are getting like $40,000 a year. they're having trouble retaining police and recruiting police in dallas. i don't know if this is all, you know, going to help all that much. i agree. we have to focus on the really bright lights in our society today that are making a difference, day in, day out. i agree that president obama's speech was quite moving. it would be nice if we heard some of that earlier on this this big controversy about the police. but i think he's almost like a preacher in these moments. he has that pastoral effect. >> we also heard from former president george w. bush today. and he -- of course, he does a lot of speaking privately and that kind of thing. he has tried to stay out of the limelight, let the next president be the president he is. that being his own community, home state, home city today, his
1:42 am
remarks very moving as well today. >> he had to, i think, step forward, it can the state of texas. and i think he, like the president, basically rose to the occasion. just going back to the points people were making about chief brown. it's a reminder that even as there's great loss of faith across the board in this country, and all the polls show it -- in federal leadership, in congress, the president and so forth, there's actually good evidence of people admire their state and local leadership more gallup just produced a poll showing people have almost twice as much faith in the state leadership where they live as they do in the federal. and looking at the performance of that police chief, not just today but over the past few days, is perhaps one reason why. it's also true, if i may add, police remain, after the military, one institution in this country that maintains a
1:43 am
majority of popular support. obviously there's a racial divide on that. that's another reason the president, you know, is constrained to speak as strongly as he did today. >> i would add with regard to state and local officials, the state in this union that has the most african-american elected officials -- not the most per capita, the most -- is mississippi. >> interesting fact. the president starting out today with lauding each of these officers, telling personal stories of each of their lives, he did veer into the political. something we see him repeatedly do when these incidents happen, to talk then about issues involving guns. >> we flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book. >> george, your reaction? >> an exaggeration, but the president has a metabolic urge
1:44 am
to talk about gun control. and i sort of forgive him that on an occasion like this. i don't think that kind of hyperbole is helpful. >> first of all, verifiably untrue. he says something that is verifiably untrue and has no relation at all to what happened. this was a military-trained expert at combat. and he went in there, knowing what he was going to do. he wasn't a teenager. it wasn't some kid who was kicking around, decides i'm going to go get a 9 millimeter or something. that ruined much of the speech for me, because you don't have to get political. this is not a day really to be political if you're up there on that stage. so i'm glad he quoted chief brown and said we're asking police to do way too much in this country. they're not parents and spiritual counselors and finding the stray dogs. there's too many dogs now that are stray dogs. so that was good. but the gun control thing it's like a pavlovian response. he has to go there.
1:45 am
>> honestly, i agree with both of you that that was a strange exaggeration and not true what he said. the broader point, speaking of things we ask the police to do too much of, we ask them to go into situations where everybody is armed too often. indeed what happened in dallas could have been much worse, given that some of the people in the protest were parading, carrying weapons, which is strangely illegal in texas. >> why is it strange? >> it shouldn't be. >> according to whom is this. >> according to me and a lot of other people. it could have made that situation catastrophically worse. yet another reason to praise the dallas police. >> important to note, though, there were no other incidents other than the sniper taking the officers' lives and, yes, there were a lot of guns in texas. that's how they roll. everybody else was peaceable. that's it for now for the panel. next up, hillary clinton and bernie sanders, are they finally really on the same page?
1:46 am
1:47 am
1:48 am
1:49 am
secretary clinton has won the democratic nominating process, and i intend to do everything i can to make certain she will be the next president of the united states. [cheers and applause] >> i am proud to be fighting
1:50 am
alongside you, because, my friends, this is a time for all of us to stand together. >> and we are back with our panel. it's official today, laura, bernie sanders and hillary clinton are joining forces after a primary battle. you seem like you are not buying it. >> i was enjoying every minute. both of them looked so uncomfortable. bernie sanders started and he is speaking and he is speaking. i was actually live on the radio. we kept having commercial breaks coming back. he is still talking. and the revolution continues. wait a second, is he reannouncing he is somehow running in 2020? i didn't know what was going on. hillary clinton is doing this clapping and nodding and it seemed like, i don't know, it was like 35 minutes long. he finally just says hillary clinton has won the nomination. yeah we knew that weeks ago. we it was very, very strained and odd. and i don't know. i don't think it's going to convince a lot of the younger voters that he is some big champion of hillary's. he says he is going to go to
1:51 am
all corners of the united states to campaign with her. is he campaigning for his agenda. i can't blame him. his agenda is one against globalization and trade deals and so forth. i think he is going to stay on that agenda and probably help her some but i don't think as much as she would like. >> here is the radicalization from donald trump all the bernie voters who want to stop bad trade deals and global special interests, we welcome with you open arms, people first, george. >> well, there is a howling contradiction a bunch of them what they are saying. hillary clinton says i'm going to continue what barack obama did but my husband will be in charge of revitalizing the economy. if the economy needs revitalized in the eighth year of the recovery, then you have a problem. second, bernie sanders says america is just a hell hole of inequality and ripping off institutions and all the rest. after eight years under the democrats.
1:52 am
so, he gave a ringing warm endorsement of himself for his courage and doing whatever he did, and then rather grudgingly did this. it was the most awkward embrace since the 1980 convention when you may recall jimmy carter had beaten edward kennedy. and kennedy wandered around the stage to prevent carter from shaking his hand. these are not pretty pictures. >> what did you think of it today, charles? >> it's obvious that senator sanders is having a difficult time leaving the stage. he has been pushing this previously sort of out there agenda who finally got, you know, hit the money this time and he got big crowds all over the country and a following, and it's clear it's hard for him to let go of that he didn't let go of it until he got a lot of what he wanted theologically into the democratic party platform. there is a long list of items. no death penalty which by the way is not hillary's own position. the $15 minimum wage so on and so forth.
1:53 am
on this tweet from trump, this is something trump has been pushing. the outreach to the bernie people. i don't think it's going to get very far. if you think about it, if you actually match up their positions on any number of issues, there is a lot of overlap on trade, on social security and medicare. they are basically on the same wavelength, and, you know, where they disagree is like who we should be blaming for all our problems. bernie wants to blame the 1 percent and trump wants to blame, i guess, mexico and china. but it is -- there is a surprising degree of overlap and, by the way, that's why hillary is so awkward and uncomfortable. only person left on the national stage who is personally associated not just with the obama years but with everything that went before. she voted for the iraq war. that was a by partisan thing. >> nafta. >> everything. with to china. this is all clinton. >> the idea she is going to be against the transpacific partnership is laughable. i don't think that passes the straight face test. wanted to put all this
1:54 am
language in against the ttp in the platform. that didn't make it. >> that's one thing she held the line. >> she held the line on that and republicans held the line on that. what does that tell everybody. >> i want to make sure we hit one of the big stories today. loretta lynch talking on the hill today taking incoming questions about the fbi decision not to recommend prosecution for hillary clinton. here is a bit of the interchange between g.o.p. congressman darrell issa and the attorney general. >> what do i say to the tens of thousands of people that live and work in my district that work for the federal government, including more than 47,000 marines, what do i say when, in fact, saying something that isn't true, handling classified information in an extremely careless way, has no criminal ramifications? >> congressman, i can't speak to any cases you may be referring to involving friends or colleagues. >> she basically did not answer these questions today. kept referring to fbi director comby. does it make any difference
1:55 am
politically for hillary clinton or anyone else? >> probably not. i think what the country was listening for in all this blizzard of stuff about servers and rules did, she break rules or did she break the law? once they were assured it was just rules, they may have tuned out. the man who really lost today was comey, who was looking for someone to come in and say yes, he said something and it's a defensible position and i as someone as a former prosecutor agree with him. she wouldn't say that in effect, she said i recuse myself long ago by saying whatever the fbi says i will embrace. >> and she was especially disarmed because she went and met with bill clinton. she might have been said had she not done that. >> they wouldn't do it in hindsight again. okay, panel, thank you. >> stick around for a look at one mom how she finally took control of her smart
1:56 am
