tv   The Kelly File  FOX News  August 8, 2016 6:00pm-7:01pm PDT

6:00 pm
phelps and ledecky can pull off in rio. that's it for us tonight. thanks for watching. i'm eric bolling. please remember the spin stops here because we're looking out for you. breaking tonight, republican nominee donald trump revving up a potential campaign reset in the motor city with a big speech on one of the two key issues that analysts believe could help him defeat hillary clinton. welcome, everyone, to "the kelly file." i'm trish regan in for megyn kelly tonight. today mr. trump gave a major speech on the economy, a speech that's raising expectations and exciting his base while also raising eyebrows from his opponents. trump's 60-minute-long speech zeroed in on what we need to do to get our economy growing again in the way of lower taxes for individuals and corporations. less regulation, better trade agreements, and child care tax credits for working parents.
6:01 pm
trump also took aim at the left's economic policies that he says have destroyed the middle class. now, there were no insults at fellow republicans today, and trump refused to let the protesters steal the show, though they tried. the donald trump we saw today, the billionaire, the entrepreneur, a man who knows first hand what regulation does to growth, came across to his supporters as a politician with a stronger, tighter message. a message focused on restarting our challenged economy. simultaneously, he went after hillary clinton. watch. >> the city of detroit is the living, breathing example of my opponent's failed economic agenda. if you were a foreign power looking to weaken america, you couldn't do better than hillary clinton's economic agenda. hillary clinton short circuited again. she accidentally told the truth and said that she wanted to
6:02 pm
raise taxes on the middle class. hillary clinton says her plan will put a lot of coal companies and coal miners out of business. there will be no change under hillary clinton. only four more years of weakness and president obama. >> now, in just a few minutes, we will speak with steve moore, the man who helped right donald trump's speech, along with robert riesh, former labor secretary under president bill clinton. first let's go to campaign carl cameron in detroit. carl. >> reporter: welcome to downtown detroit where donald trump today addressed the detroit economic club, a policy wonk oriented organization, and there wasn't a lot of the kind of talk that is customary here, how to reduce the deficit, how to balance the budget. instead, it was mostly an enunciation of trump's golds and priorities. not a lot of specifics but there was a big revision. he talked about how he would
6:03 pm
reduce the number of marginal tax brackets from the current number down to three and revised his numbers upward. early in the campaign, trump said he would have only three brackets, 10, 20, and 25%. a dramatic reduction from the current highest bracket of 39% taxes. that has now been revised, and trump says that there will be three brackets, 12%, 25%, and 33%, an increase from what he had proposed, but it puts him in line with house republicans and paul ryan, who have proposed tax reductions with those brackets as those rates. it's a very big deal. apart from that revision, what really this was today was a speech in which donald trump went after hillary clinton, saying that she has all of her political life embraced the policies of failure. watch. >> every policy that has failed this city and so many others is a policy supported by hillary clinton. she supports the high taxes and
6:04 pm
radical regulation that forced jobs out of your community and the crime policies have made you far, far less safe. >> reporter: trump reiterated his commitment to make child expenses fully deductible and suggested that he will do away with carried interest, a darling of hedge fund and wall street bigwigs that's allowed them to escape a lot of taxes. trump from the earliest stages of his potential campaign says this was one of the things he was going to change in order to make taxing more fair. >> thank you so much, carl. will trump's economic and tax plan work? and importantly, will it help him right now with voters. joining me, stephen moore, trump economic adviser and a fox news contributor, along with robert r riesh. i'm going to start with stephen. stephen, trump says lower taxes, less regulation. it will unleash american prosperity. now, you know i'm a business reporter. i spend a lot of time covering
6:05 pm
the economy. so politics aside, these are, in most economists' minds, generally healthy ideas for the economy. but how could he do it? i mean you heard carl hit him on specifics. how could he do it and if he does, what kind of growth are we talking about? >> great to be with you, trish. by the way, i just do have to make a political point because we all know that the last week was a pretty bad one for donald trump. and he needed to swing for the fences today, and, you know, he knocked this thing out of the park. i mean there was an air of electricity in that convention center? detroit. and there's a reason he gave that speech in detroit. detroit really is the embodiment of the failed liberal policies of the last 30, 40 years. now, you asked the question can he do it? and the answer is yes. look, every time we've cut taxes, whether you go back to john f. kennedy in the 1960s or reagan in the 1980s, we've had more growth. by the way, one of the most important points of the economic program that was announced today, you haven't mentioned yet, which is businesses. small businesses and big
6:06 pm
businesses will now pay a 15% tax. now, trish, you know this from fox business news. the united states of america has the highest business tax rate in the world. and how many times have you reported on great american companies like burger king and pfizer and others that are leaving the united states because our taxes are so high? and we really believe you bring those taxes down and the regulations, you're going to bring a lot of those companies back to michigan and ohio and pennsylvania and illinois, and you're going to regenerate growth. so the way you get the deficit down, trish, is you build -- rebuild the american economy. >> and therefore -- yeah. then you bring in more tax revenue. that's the thinking anyway. bob, you have a problem, and always have with this sort of lower tax idea as a way to unleash prosperity. so what is your main complaint? >> first let me say something very positive. i want to salute stephen moore for his handiwork, his fingerprints were all over that trump speech today, and stephen, what you did is you walked
6:07 pm
donald trump away from the abyss of sheer lunacy back toward the normal -- >> thank you, bob. >> -- nonsense of supply-side, trickle-down economics. >> we can count on bob for that, anyway. >> i think that's real progress. i mean, look it, this is basically what paul ryan has been urging. donald trump is now lining himself up with paul ryan, and the problems with it are a couple. these are the classic problems with supply-side, trickle-down economics. nothing trickles down. you don't really change the average, you know, working person's life. you just give huge tax benefits to the wealthy, and also you very often end up with huge deficits. now, we've seen this again and again, trish. i'm not saying anything that's new. but i am speaking as somebody who was the labor secretary in bill clinton's administration, and the clinton years were pretty good. i mean 22 million new jobs.
6:08 pm
>> the problem with our current economic situation is whether you want to go after trickle-down economics, you can look at the current situation and know that it actually hasn't worked. i mean stephen moore, you look at the jobs picture right now and, yeah, unemployment is decreasing. but the reality is nobody is making any more money. in fact, wages have been stagnant for 20 years. when you look at the opportunity that people have now, it's not the same as it was 30, 40, 50 years ago. so, you know, i'd like you to answer bob here, as he says, this trickle-down theory, it doesn't work. it won't. >> a couple things. first of all, it certainly hasn't worked what we've done over the last 7 1/2, 8 years. we've had the weakest recovery since the great depression. americans haven't had a pay raise now. this is the first time we've had a recovery, so-called recovery from a recession where middle class families didn't make any ground. in fact, they've lost so ground in this recovery. and the real unemployment rate, as donald trump said today, i
6:09 pm
mean the biggest joke in america is that we have a 5% unemployment rate. it's closer to 10% to 15% when you include all the people out of the workforce. we believe that by lowering taxes on business and getting the regulations off businesses, you're going to grow the businesses, bob. once you grow those businesses, they're going to hire more workers. they're going to pay more money. what i don't understand, bob, and maybe you can address this. hillary clinton says she actually wants to raise the taxes. she wants to raise the capital gains taxes which is how small businesses are financed. she wants a 4% surtax on small business owners and wealthy people. that's going to take more money out of the businesses. how is that going to create more jobs? >> first of all, moody's analytics, which is not a left-wing organization -- i mean moody's analytics looked at hillary clinton's plan and said it would create 10.1 million net new jobs. i was in nt clinton administration. we created 22 million net new jobs, not because we reduced taxes. we raised taxes.
6:10 pm
what did we do? we invested in the american workforce in tuerms of infrastructure and education. most people actually kept more income if they were low income people. we made the economy fairer, and we also invested in our workforce, steve. >> bob if i actually thought that hillary clinton clinton would govern the way bill clinton did, i might actually vote for her. >> i'm going to quote you on that. >> we'll leave it there, guys. you got a compliment on both sides. thank you so much. >> if you look at what happened under bill clinton, dramatic reductions in government spending. we did the capital gains tax. we did welfare reform, a lot of those under newt gingrich and bill clinton. my problem is that hillary and to the left, one of the areas that we're going to talk about a lot in this campaign was energy. >> there's a lot there to talk about. unfortunately we're out of time. stephen moore, thank you so
6:11 pm
much. good to see you guys. it's worth mentioning that at the same time donald trump was laying out his vision for making the economy great again, with one of the policies, the child care tax credit aimed at helping working women, the media was going after ivanka trump. trump's famous daughter known for defending her daughter and for also playing not just a big role in his company but separately, running her own fashion company. so here's what they're getting her on. apparently her fashion company partners with another company which is under attack for not offering paid maternity leave. the revelation leads the wa post to proclaim ivanka trump champions working moms, except the ones who design her clothes. howie kurtz joins me now with more. howie, i was wondering when they were going to start in on her. today apparently is the day. what do you think? is there anything here to this story, or does it just make for one sexy headline? >> well, ivanka is fair game for the press given her role with her father. but this story, i got to tell
6:12 pm
you, is as thin as hand-me-down lingerie. it's based on one complaint from an unnamed woman. it doesn't involve ivanka's own clothing company, which offers eight weeks of paid maternity leave and flexible hours for new parents. but a company whose work she licenses, which follows the law by the way, but offers 12 weeks of unpaid maternity leave. so is ivanka responsible for the personnel practices of everyone she does business with? i don't think so. >> apparently "the washington post" might think so. you say that she's fair game. i just wonder about that. i mean do we see the left coming out and attacking chelsea clinton for whatever issues she might have had along the way? i mean don't you think that there is a little bit of a bias or a reason for them to go after members of donald trump's family in a way that we don't necessarily see on the other side, howie? >> well, i don't think she's fair game personally, but in terms of her business record and the fact that, you know, she spoke at the republican convention, i'm just saying i don't consider her to be off
6:13 pm
limits completely. but to come back to the -- my problem with the story, it was so determined to show that this was the sort of a rich girl, a hypocrite because she claims to care about working moms. it had such a condescending tone. it began with her republican convention speech in a blush tone dress -- >> 158 bucks? pretty nice dress. >> then the story goes on and on. it dredges up a 1994 quote from donald about putting a wife to work can be dangerous with reference to his then-divorced wife ivana. and then finally this to me reminds me, trish, of the new york post publishing those 20-year-old nude modeling photos of melania. it's a way of getting at the candidate by attacking his family. >> howie kurtz, thank you so much. ignore for a minute what the media is telling you right now about polls and consider this. what if we were heading into november, and this race was actually literally too close to
6:14 pm
call? chris stirewalt raised that exact question today, and he is here to explain why that scenario is very much a possibility. plus a new republican challenger today announced he is joining the race for the white house, and he's here next. plus a dramatic new headache for hillary clinton after reports surface that a u.s. spy discussed on hillary clinton's unsecure e-mails has now been executed by iran. judge napolitano is in the house. he'll explain. i'll see you here in two. >> does the department think and some have even charged there's a link between that appearance and unclassified e-mails and the prosecution and execution of dr. amiri. does the department see any linkage between the two? put some distance between you and temptation with...
6:15 pm
...meta appetite control. clinically proven to help reduce hunger between meals. new, from metamucil, the #1 doctor recommended brand. now you can't spell nutriam i right?t nut, i mean whose to say it's pronounced nu-triton, anyway? my mixes contain delicious nuts, specially blended for your optimal nut-rition. that's right, i just changed a word in the english dictionary, forever. planters. nutrition starts with nut. at safelite, we know how busy life can be. these kids were headed to their first dance recital... ...when their windshield got cracked... ...but they couldn't miss the show. so dad went to the new safelite-dot-com. and in just a few clicks, he scheduled a replacement...
6:16 pm
...before the girls even took the stage. safelite-dot-com is the fast, easy way to schedule service anywhere in america! so you don't have to miss a thing. y'all did wonderful! that's another safelite advantage. (girls sing) safelite repair, safelite replace. glad forceflex. extra strong to avoid rips and tears. be happy, it's glad. at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like grandkids equals free tech support. oh, look at you, so great to see you! none of this works. come on in.
6:17 pm
6:18 pm
developing tonight, about three months out now until election 2016, and a new poll from monmouth university has clinton at 46% support among registered voters compared to 34% for donald trump. the real clear politics average points to a slightly tighter race with hillary at 47% and trump at 40%. my next guest says no matter what the media is saying -- and we've heard a lot lately -- a neck and neck race heading into
6:19 pm
november is not out of the realm of possibility. chris stirewalt joins me right now. he's our fox news digital politics editor. chris, good to see you. >> how are we doing? >> walk me through here your scenario. how do you see this playing out? >> well, so far what we see in that monmouth poll and other polls, this is the low end for donald trump. this is the bottom end of his support. he's got a range that's between the mid-30s to the mid-40s, maybe 46, 47. hillary clinton has a range too. her range is from about 50% down to the low 40s. so you can imagine a moment if these two candidates stay within these band widths this if he's at his high point and she's at her low point three months from tonight on election day, guess what? he could win. he could win a narrow election, and that could be very challenging for this country because, remember, a big part of donald trump's success is saying that everything is rigged, that the country is a fraud, that things are falling apart, that you can't trust people, and that there's a conspiracy against ordinary folks.
6:20 pm
and that energy is on the left and the right, whether you're elizabeth warren or whether you're donald trump, that's all out there. if we get into a 2000 bush v. gore situation, things get pretty dicey out there. >> let me ask you about polling data. there have been recent -- in recent times, situations in which the polling hasn't held up in terms of, you know, say august in 1988, dukakis was ahead in the polls yet failed to win the presidency. >> well, sure. just because the polls say something today doesn't mean that's what it's going to be three months from today. we're exactly halfway between donald trump clinching the nomination and election day. so we're exactly at the hinge point in the election. we're halfway home. now, things can change a lot over that period of time, and even if it just stays within that bandwidth it can change a lot. i would remind you -- this is really important. the polls are mostly accurate. good polls have mostly been accurate, and we have never seen a presidential election blown. we're looking for the trend
6:21 pm
lines over the next three months. >> do you think he helps himself today by getting back to the economy as his main message? >> it's his best message. it's the things that voters trust him the most on consistently. that's his best place to be. he ought to say there. >> thanks so much. as you just heard moments ago, there is a new face shaking up the 2016 presidential race. evan mcmullin is a nerve trump conservative who officially announced his independent bid for the presidency earlier today. now in a kelly file exclusive, he's telling us why he wants his name on the ballot. joining me right now, evan mcmullin, a former cia officer who most recently served as chief policy director for the house republican conference. good to have you here. >> thank you. good to be here. >> why are you getting in now? >>le wit well, i'm getting in n because i firmly believe that both candidates are woefully unprepared and woefully unfit for the responsibilities that they seek. and i think our country is desperate for a new generation of leadership. i think that's clear. americans are so unsatisfied
6:22 pm
with the direction of the country, and then to have two candidates whose negatives are so high. there's just a lot of frustration out there. >> but, again, i guess i just question the timing of it because apparently 26 states have already basically closed the opportunity for you to get on the ballot there. so that would make it extraordinarily difficult for you to get the votes that you need to win the presidency. >> well, a couple of things. first of all, the petition deadlines may have passed, but there are other means to get on those ballots. let's just say that. i've got a dream tegreat team. we expect to be on a broad number of ballots and to compete, and to compete to win. with regard to the timing of this, yes, it's not ideal. in fact, for months, i as well as many americans have hoped that someone with national name i.d. would step up and do what i'm doing. i believe this is the last moment when somebody can offer credibly still an alternative to these two unfit candidates. >> so you're a lifelong
6:23 pm
republican. >> i am. i would say i'm a lifelong conservative before that. >> okay. are you okay, then, with hillary clinton getting elected? are you okay with your taxes going higher? are you okay with her picking supreme court justices? >> listen, the suggestion is that i somehow would force her to win. donald trump is losing badly already to hillary. i've just entered the race today. he's doing terribly, and he can't keep his foot out of his mouth. >> but you just heard chris say look it's early. there's still more than 90 days to go. you know, polls can be meaning less when you finally going to the ballot box. and there are polls out right now that suggest he is running quite tightly with her in some states. so the thinking would be you might pull away some of those votes, therefore tipping the favor to hillary clinton. >> donald trump is losing badly now according to the polls, according to the real clear politics average poll, which doesn't necessarily reflect the current situation.
6:24 pm
and it still shows that he's quite a bit behind. donald trump keeps saying terrible things that alienates large swaths of the population. he's wholly unfit. i think in fact he's dangerous to the country. by the way, he is not a conservative. the idea that donald trump is a conservative is a complete farce. he is a conman who pretends to be a conservative. >> those are some big allegations for someone who doesn't want to see hillary clinton elected. thank you so much. joining me right now to respond to mr. mcmullin, new york congressman chris collins, co-chair of donald trump's u.s. house leadership committee. good to have you here, congressman. he says he's not going to take votes from donald trump, but i guess that's one of the concerns here. >> well, i don't think he's going to get any votes. this is kind of a desperate noise in the wind kind of move, trish. we're not going to pay any attention to this. the thing is about the polls, they can't poll energy. the donald trump energy -- the
6:25 pm
reason people are voting for him, he's going to secure the borders, bring our jobs back, defeat isis, make america great again, put america first. hillary clinton has yet to give a reason why anyone should vote for her. the best she can say is don't vote for donald trump. that's not going to cut it over the next 95 days. and when she steps up in that first debate with donald trump, no one's going to be watching an nfl game. america is going to tune in, and hillary clinton, who can't take a question from "the new york times" and defend what she's trying to defend -- because you can't defend the indefensible on the e-mails, let alone the foundation and benghazi, you can go on and on. what i'll say is the polls don't mean a whole lot today. i think we just have to look at the battleground states. we have to look at ohio, north carolina, pennsylvania, and florida. those are the key states. donald trump wins those four states, he's our next president. >> if he keeps doing what he did today, if he keeps hitting the issues -- and by that, i mean
6:26 pm
the economy. i mean national security. if he stays on message, can he turn this thing around? >> oh, there's no question he can. you know, we had kind of a stumble the last week or so, but i think he's back on message. it is the economy. 80% of the public says the economy is going in the wrong direction. the country is going in the wrong direction. as one of your other folks on the show said, the middle class hasn't had a wage increase in 20 years. more people living in poverty. we need to get the economy moving, and that's going to create the opportunities for wage increases, more jobs. we're going to bring the jobs back from china. we're going to erect some tariffs to make sure we have fair trade. this free trade nonsense just didn't cut it. on jobs and the economy as well as talking about terrorism, donald trump has the answers. it's a reason to vote for him, and hillary hasn't yet given a reason to vote for her. >> thank you so much. good to have you here. for months, now, everyone, hillary clinton has embraced the
6:27 pm
black lives matter movement. but when police tried to reach out to mrs. clinton, her response left them disappointed and shocks. sheriff david clarke and attorney eric guster are here on that next. plus an alleged spy is referenced in hillary clinton's unsecure e-mails. and then iran kills him. judge andrew napolitano is just ahead. >> does the department think that -- and some have even charged there's a link between that appearance and unclassified e-mails and the prosecution and execution of dr. amiri. does the department see any linkage between the two? e'll be. e'll be. now she writes mostly in emoji. soon, she'll type the best essays in the entire 8th grade. today, the only spanish words he knows are burrito and enchilada. soon, he'll take notes en espanol. get back to great with the right gear.

that's what we're working on right now. ♪ energy lives here. hillary clinton dealing with new controversy concerning police. while the democrats went out of their way to include cops on stage at the end of last month's convention, when the cameras weren't rolling and america's biggest police group approached the clinton camp about endorsing her for president, clinton says thanks but no thanks. trace gallagher reports. >> reporter: trish, the national fraternal order of police says it has about 335,000 members, about half of the police officers in the u.s. the way the presidential
6:32 pm
endorsement system works is that each candidate fills out one of their questionnaires. the answers are then distributed to members and the various chapters vote. if two-thirds of the chapter agree on a candidate, the union will endorse. neither mitt romney nor president obama got the two-thirds needed in 2012. but hillary clinton apparently won't even fill out the questionnaire. the union feels snubbed saying the clinton campaign indicated right up until the deadline that she would seek the endorsement. the union president says, quoting, you would think with law enforcement issues being so much in the news, even if she had disagreements with our positions, she would have been willing to say that. the union has also criticized the democratic party for being more focuses on deaths caused by police than officers killed in the line of duty. when asked about the endorsement, the clinton campaign side stepped, saying,
6:33 pm
quote, hillary and her team have engaged law enforcement throughout the campaign to listen to ideas and solutions, and she will continue to do so as president. clinton has gained the support of mothers of the black lives matter movement and has actively courted the black lives matter movement. but the founder of blm has said the clintons, vote, use black people for votes but then don't do anything for black communities. donald trump is actively seeking the police union endorsement. the last candidate to snub the union was john kerry back in 2004. >> all right. thank you, trace. so why would hillary snub the police? joining us now, sheriff david clarke of milwaukee county sheriff's office, and eric guster, an attorney and political commentator. welcome to you both. david, i'm going to start with you. it seems to me you want every vote you can possibly get, right? why would she not want those of the police? >> especially from a fraternal organization of police. look, everybody that runs for
6:34 pm
elected office, state, local, federal level, they know they have to have and they seek out aggressively support of first responders, police, sheriff's deputies, firefighters, corrections officers, so on and so forth. even her husband, who is a better politician on his worst day than she could ever hope to be on her best day, two times sought the support of the fraternal order of police and received it in '96. he was like a kid in a candy shop. here is what he said. for four years i've worked hard to stand with police officers of america, and i'm profoundly honored that they have decided to stand with me for four more years. he understood the importance of that. she has had nothing but utter contempt for the american law enforcement officer. this is just another thumb in our eye. she's engaged the law enforcement community, but she's done nothing but slander our reputations. >> that quote that you just read from her husband, it was, i should point out, at a different time when we didn't have black lives matter taking to the streets. and, eric, could we actually be
6:35 pm
looking at this and saying this was, in fact, a very calculated political move? in other words, she did not want to be associated with the police because it's too important for her to have those black lives matter votes? >> no, that's not the case, trish. hillary clinton has reached out to police officers as well as people on the social justice movement, and it's not just about black lives matter. this is about getting police to be held accountable for the things that some of the bad ones do. and police officers have to start coming forward to report these bad police officers. now, back to hillary clinton and her endorsement, this is just a union. she's not saying, i don't support the police. she does support the police. she said it hundreds of time on the campaign trail that she supports their actions. >> she didn't even try to get their endorsement. she clearly didn't seem to want it. >> they vote in september, so she still has time to get the endorsement, trish. >> the cutoff is order. she missed the deadline. she never moved forward. they invited her to do so.
6:36 pm
and, sheriff clarke, she declined the opportunity. do you think she's being politically calculating? in her view, she does not want to be associated with the police because therefore that would destroy her support among many members of the african-american community? >> well, sure. she's all in with the criminals. you know, her compassion for criminals is not shared by mainstream america. most of the american public, a large segment of the american public stands on the side of the american police officer. she knows she has to have a heavy volume of black votes to even contend in this election. but she's not going to outdo barack obama, who had a record number in both 2008 and 2012. and if obama hadn't outdone him self in 2012 with a new record high for black voters, he would have lost to mitt romney. she has no connection emotionally to the black community, and that's why she has to go all in and leave no daylight in her contempt for the american police officer.
6:37 pm
>> clearly struggling right now as we look at crime rights, we look at unemployment, and you look back over the last eight years. and if i were an african-american voter right now that might have been thinking about voting for a democrat, i think i'd have some serious questions, eric, because i would want some change. and i don't know if she quite can deliver that or at least in her message, she's not offering that. does she need to emphasize more change? >> trump isn't the change. as long as trump keeps on the downward spiral that he's going on, she doesn't need to reach out to the fop. he has lost so many endorsements from gop leaders that it is shameful for a gop candidate to lack that type of endorsement. and what trump is doing, he is dividing our country. and what hillary clinton is trying to do is bring us all together. she's not saying, i'm all for one side or the other. she wants to bring both sides to the table. let's talk about community actions. let's talk about making sure the police -- that bad police are held accountable for the things that they do.

fallout from the latest twist in hillary clinton's ongoing private server scandal. iran announcing the execution of shahram amiri, an alleged spy whose fate was discussed over clinton's vulnerable e-mail system way back in 2010. yesterday senator tom cotton said this goes to show how mrs. clinton gravely mishandled american secrets. >> the e-mails that were on hillary clinton's private server, there were conversations among her senior advisers about this gentleman. that goes to show how reckless and careless her decisions was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private server. i think her judgment is not suited to keep this country safe. >> now today the state department wouldn't say if mrs. clinton's e-mails led to the scientist's death. watch. >> dr. amiri was referenced in the e-mails of former secretary of state clinton. >> mm-hmm. >> does the department think that -- and some have even charged that there's a link
6:44 pm
between that appearance in unclassified e-mails and the prosecution and execution of dr. amiri. does the department see any linkage between the two? >> so we're not going to comment on what may have led to this event. >> all right. in just moments, we're going to speak to judge andrew napolitano who thinks hillary clinton may have jeopardized national security. but first let's go to chief washington correspondent james rosen, who is in washington with the details on this. james. >> reporter: trish, good evening. the islamic regime said it executed shahram amiri because he gave the u.s. violate information about iran's nuclear program while he was here in the states under bizarre circumstances. back in june 2009, amiri disappeared during a pilgrimage to mecca. he surfaced a year lating posting internet videos in which he claimed to have been abducted by the cia, taken to tucson and torture and that he was free and safe. here's what secretary of state clinton said about him at the time. >> mr. amiri has been in the
6:45 pm
united states of his own free will, and he is free to go. he's free to go. he was free to come. these decisions are his alone to make. >> reporter: amiri made it to the pakistani embassy in washington and there demanded to return to iran, which he did. even in announcing amiri's execution on sunday, the regime boasted that the u.s. intelligence community had been duped by iran. transamerica tra >> translator: americans assumed for a while that iran was not aware of this person's actions or what he was linked to or how he was taken to saudi arabia and taken away from them. they imagined that our intelligence was unaware of all of that. >> reporter: in july 2010 when amiri's return to iran was still being finalized, a top energy adviser of hillary clinton's richard morningstar wrote to clinton's deputy chief of staff, referring to amiri as a, quote, friend to the united states and suggesting how to massage the issue for public consumption. quote, we have a diplomatic siej
6:46 pm
logical issue, not a legal issue, morning star wrote. our friend has to be given a way out. we should recognize his concerns. we will make sure there is no recurrence. that e-mail was forwarded to the secretary of state, whose private server was so inadequately secured, the fbi concluded that, quote, hostile actors may have gained access to it. the clinton campaign says it's remarkable that anyone would link her to this, quote, tragic death. trish. >> all right. thanks so much. here now with more, judge andrew napolitano. judge, what do you think? i mean did hillary's e-mail have something to do with this man's execution? >> well, we don't know because he was tried in a court system very unfamiliar to us, and he was convicted. he was sentenced to death. he appealed it. he lost the appeal. and yesterday he was apparently hanged. we do know that he did provide us with a lot of information. we do know that american intelligence agencies paid him a good deal of money. he was a classic spy. he provided information that was fed to secretary kerry, who had
6:47 pm
it in the back of his head or in his notes at the time he was negotiating with his opposite number that produced the iranian accords. whatever you think of those accords, we had a leg up on them because of this spy who worked for us. can you imagine -- imagine if this e-mail was used in the prosecution against him, the american secretary of state, the great satan, was referring to you as their friend. >> if i were a spy anywhere in the world right now, i'd be pretty nervous knowing that hillary clinton's e-mail server was not secure, knowing that she could have said the same about me. you refer to someone as a friend. are you then in danger? >> one of the reasons that one of the former leaders of the nsa now in private life suggested that the democratic national committee was probably hacked by the nsa is because of the well known antipathy that the intelligence community has to
6:48 pm
hillary clinton. and that antipathy is based on a couple of things, not the least of which is the reckless manner in which she exposed state secrets, including the names of spies, including the names of moles, including the names of double agents. and some of those people in the intelligence community had their covers blown by mrs. clinton's recklessness, and some of those people in the intelligence community, others believe, never came back home because she blew their cover. >> and this is because of the e-mail server, because somebody was able to get access to this? >> this is because she failed to safeguard state secrets by causing all e-mails to come to her -- she didn't write this e-mail that referred to him as our friend, but she was copied on it so it passed through her non-secure server. some of information she in turn sent to her friend sid blumenthal who had no security on his server, and we know his
6:49 pm
server was breached probably by the iranians. >> and members of the intelligence community believe that there are people that have been compromised as a result. >> and for that reason, they do not want to see mrs. clinton in the white house because they believe she's a danger to national security. and the more she lies about this, trish -- put aside the politics -- the more she feeds their fear and antipathy. >> sure. judge, good to see you tonight. thank you so much, sure. the saga of the sew-called clock boy. remember him? it continues. first his handmade clock landed him in hot water with authorities. then he left the country. well, guess what? he's back in the usa, and he's filing a lawsuit. the details on that one next. >> anytime i walk out of the house, there might be death waiting for me. so the best thing for me is that i have to stay overseas, far away. and i really love this state. it's my home. but i couldn't stay. s your body back. only miralax

a kelly file follow up. it was just about a year ago that a boy got in trouble for bringing a handmade clock to school that some said resembled a bomb. now his family is suing, saying the principal, the school district, and the city, they all violates his civil rights. trace gallagher reports for us
6:54 pm
tonight. >> reporter: hey, trish. the lawsuit claims the state of texas and the irving school district has a history of discrimination against muslims. so 14-year-old ahmed mohamed and his family are now asking a jury to decide the damages. the family had offered to settle the case for $15 million. the boy, as you'll recall, was arrested last september for bringing a hoax bomb to school. ahmed claimed he built the clock out of hardware salvaged from his parents' garage and was even applauded by president obama for his injen uity and invited to the white house. but critics later claimed the boy never built a clock. instead, he took the cover off an old clock, exposing the wires, making it look suspicious. police eventually dropped the charges, but he was still suspended for three days and ended up leaving the school altogether and moving to qatar. the family is now living back in texas, but ahmed claims it's no longer safe for him to live here. watch. >> there is nothing i can do.
6:55 pm
i've lost a lot of things. i lost my security. i can't walk out on the streets anymore without having to be covered up because i don't want to get shot because it happens here. and it might happen anywhere. >> reporter: ahmed, who the media nicknamed clock boy, says he got a lot of support in the beginning, but now it's the hate that really sticks. and we should point out the reason his family has now moved back from qatar to texas is because the family could not find work over there. they were living on food stamps in subsidized housing, so now they're back, and he'll go back to school in qatar. we should point out finally this is still being investigated by the irving school district, and there is a battle between the state and school district as to whether that investigation ultimately will go public or remain private. >> i love that the family couldn't find work over there, so they're back here, and now they're suing. trace, thank you so much. we're going to be right back. i'll see you right here.
