tv On the Record With Greta Van Susteren FOX News August 29, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT
you go. it's always fun. thanks for inviting us into your home tonight. that's it for this "special report," fair, balanced and unafraid. twitter can be a dangerous place. greta goes "on the record" right now. >> san francisco 49ers quarterback collin kaepernick causing a fire literally. fans, or exfans burning his jersey all because kaepernick refuses to stand for national anthem. the quarterback standing by his decision saying our country oppresses black people. as you can guess, many are outraged. [national anthem] >> there's a lot of things that need to change. one specific solid police brutality. >> very courageous act. to sit on your ass as a third string quarterback likely to be cut. very, very, very courageous. >> there are a lot of things going on that are unjust. >> i find the words of
collin kaepernick reprehensible, disgusting. >> you, mr. kaepernick don't love our country, get the [bleep] out of it, okay? >> i understand his point of view but i don't think that was the right arena to do so. >> sit on your butt in the country that made you the star and the wealthy millionaire that you are. >> former florida congressman and executive director of the national center for policy analysis lieutenant colonel allen west goes "on the record." good evening, sir how are you. >> i'm good. how are you? >> you blasted kaepernick? >> well, look, i come from a family of servants. my father was born in 1920 and served in world war ii at a time when he truly knew what oppression meant. he was not afforded all the rights and privileges that other americans were. when he sat me down as a young man on the steps of our home in atlanta, georgia, in an inner city neighborhood, he told me there is no greater honor,
and no greater privilege than wearing the uniform for the united states of america. when collin kaepernick sits down and does not respect the flag, the same flag that draped the coffin of my father a world war ii veteran, i do take umbrage with that. >> i suppose it did help with his fans that i don't know that he is known for doing much in the community but, you know, he is a wealthy man. is he paid a lot of money. he earns it. is he a great football player. but i think that there is -- it seems to me that he might have found a better way to express his political opinion. it might have been better if he were out in the community helping, perhaps, or at least have done something to that effect rather than sitting down. >> well, you are absolutely right. i think that when you look at the young man, he is just parroting talking points. i want to ask him how do you define oppression in the united states of america? because, as i look at what's happened in the black community, it is not the oppression coming from, you know, this great nation or this country. everyone has an equality of opportunity. but when you look at the
ails of this community, you look at the fact that two young black men 26 and 22, two young brothers just shot the cousin of dwyane wade an nba star how do we go so wrong in the community. look at the break down of the community. look at the family. entrepreneurship in the inner city community. that's what collin should have been talking about instead of parroting these talking points that i don't know who he got them from. >> let's bring in the viewers. in now is your chance to vote at home on twitter. should the nfl punish collin kaepernick for sitting during the national anthem tweet yenders using #greta. show you live votes throughout the show. is there any way he can get i has created a lot of noise is there any way to back out of that and express his deep seeded feeling about what's going on in the nation? >> yeah, i think so. that was one of the things that i recommended in the
piece that i wrote. first and foremost he should give a humble apology to this country and to the men and women who serve and, you know, stand to make that last full measure of devotion. i think he should take a hiatus away from the nfl football season. can he go over to helmand province in afghanistan and be there with those men and women that are protecting his rights and his freedoms and affording him the privilege to be able to be a multimillionaire 1 percenter and throw the football with them out in one of those combat zones and tell them how much you appreciate it. i think if he does something like that, the american people would understand that he has probably saw the ills of his ways and misguided comments. >> why do you think he sat down the other night night? >> well, you know, this is a very trendy thing to go on right now in the united states of america, to stand up and, you know, speak against your country. and lots of times these are people that have never been to any other country and they don't understand how so many people want to come to the united states of america and earn that title of
american because of what we stand for. now, there are issues in the break community, absolutely right. but they are not issues that are resulting from anything that the american people have done. if he has a beef with law enforcement in the united states of america, he should not speak out trying to undermine the rule of law, which means that people have to go through a due process. you know, we saw the false narrative of hands up, don't shoot there in ferguson, missouri. and the other thing is is the nfl needs to clarify their positions. because, here in dallas, we were just told that the dallas cowboys could not have a decal on their helmet to recognize those five police officers that were killed but, yet, we will see what happens with young colin. >> stay with us for a second. i want to bring in former marine bomb technician staff sergeant joni jones who tweeted this hey kaepernick i don't have legs but i will stand with enough pride for both of us every time my national anthem plays. good evening, sir. and obviously you have a strong reaction to
kaepernick refusing to stand during the national anthem. your thoughts, sir? >> absolutely, good evening, greta. yeah, i actually took issue with his comments afterwards refusing to stand, that's one thing and it offends me it, really does. that is free speech. his comments equated operatism or pride in this country or that anthem to supporting oppression. listen, by no means is our country perfect and by all means let's address actual issues and we're to solve them. when you sit there and equate my pride in my country to a bigot in some other place or the ones that are in this country to the 300 million that aren't that way, i take issue with that and i want to tell you about it especially when you use your platform that way. >> you know, sitting down was obviously a huge statement. then he dug his heels in a little bit deeper with things that he said afterwards. i don't know if upon some reflection he might want to sort of try to unbury himself from this. is there any way that he can sort of restore what
happened and try to, you know, get back your confidence in him and your admiration for him? >> absolutely. i mean, america is a country of coming together and forgiveness. that flag and that anthem, that stands for the people that sought the civil war and united this country. that fought for the people that fought for civil rights and made this country a little bit better. stands for the people working hard every single day to fix these issues that do exist. hey, listen, i come from a small town in georgia. i have seen racism. i have also seen people grow and learn. i have seen ignorance turn into compassion. you don't do it by drawing more lands in the sand. as a service member, it's offensive for people not to stand for the national anthem. but as an american, it's offensive for you to equate my pride to bigots or oppression or other things that are wrong in this country but will be fixed. >> colonel, he has now probably had a little extra time to think about it and i ask both of you positions how he can restore himself. if he elects not to and digs
his heels in even deeper, then what? should the nfl do something? >> well, there are cobs sequences to your actions. and, you know, i just want to say that what you have on your show tonight are two young men, both from georgia, from different background. guess what? we both took an oath to support and defend the constitution of the united states of america. we both took an oath to stand and make sure that we defend this way of life. if this young man does not understand how this is such a great nation and it affords opportunities for young johnny and allen west to be together, you know, we are missing out on what this country is. the nfl is going to have to make a tough decision because, when you look at the st. louis rams who came out with the hands up, don't shoot. that was a false narrative. you look at the denial of the decal on the dallas cowboys helmet. what are g.e. they going to do in the instance of colin. >> staff sergeant, what should the nfl do if anything? >> i think the nfl has an excellent opportunity to set a policy and abide by it. i don't think they should
ask colin kaepernick to stand. they should allow the decals on the dallas cowboys helmets. that's neither here nor there. i hope' colin kaepernick comes out and explains what he is passionate about. that's not the 330 million americans that fall under that anthem and support it that's the ones we are going to weed out and the ones we are going to fix. i believe that's what he will do. i pray that's what he will do. i will pray for him and i know this country is better than what we are seeing and i know we are going to get there. >> and, greta, if i could say, opening day for the nfl is 9/11, i don't think the colin wants the optic of him sitting on the sideline. >> i'm sure he doesn't. i'm sure his team doesn't. i'm sure the owners don't want that. i don't think the fans want that. anyway, colonel, thank you, sir. >> thank you so much. >> and the san francisco 49ers quarterback saying this won't be the last time he refts to stand for the national anthem. >> i will continue to sit. i'm going to continue to
stand with the people that are being oppressed. to me, this is something that has to change. and when there is significant change and i feel like that flag represents what it is supposed to represent and this country is representing people that it is supposed to, i'll stand. >> "u.s.a. today" sports managing editor david meeks is here. david, doesn't look like this was sort of a dumb idea one night is he digging his heels in making statements afterwards. is he going farther ghe said before in talking about this he had been thinking about it for some time and talked about it with his family and close friends of his. he has not had a happy off season h some surgeries. didn't play last year and lost starting job. there is more than unhappiness about the anthem. >> what does this do about the more raffle the team. other players know this problem is going on with their quarterback. maybe not the starting quarterback and backup quarterback. did he once take them to the super bowl. what's the morale like in that locker room? >> that's going to be the number one things on the minds of the coaching staff
and players on this team. you can make a speech and bring the flag into it you are setting up a firestorm. these other guys don't get paid $12 million a year. they pay for a living. they don't want distractions that tears the team apart or stops it from playing as well as they can. >> a possibility he could get cut without getting that money. >> he won't get cut without paying that money. he would get paid. he would take a pay cut anyway. >> bad boy images and players and had sort of the watching some of the excitement, joe namath was always excite toggle watch years ago. is there any place where he could go that he would be received that they need a quarterback? because i don't think is he going to stay. i don't see him staying in san francisco. >> he hasn't wanted to be there. he has been soaking a trade before this. it is hard to imagine who wouldn't take him if is he a great player at his best. at his healthiest he was electrifying player. he isn't that right now. right now the market is low for him. >> 79% of the people think the nhl should punish him. the nfl's position has been.
>> what we encourage all our players to stand for the national anthem. we do not require it big difference between sitting nor the national anthem and bringing in flag and oppression. that's what set this off. a lot of people seen this flag as a way to get out of oppression. that's the way the country was formed. >> i don't see him staying in san francisco. this is a painful thing. you get the idea that he had an attitude going into this. his career he had a bad off season and not a good start to this season. this seems like a bitter player long before this controversy and this is showing it. >> last night he made disparaging comments about donald trump and hillary clinton and morphed into something more than just the anthem and the flag. clearly he has some things on his mind. >> who owns the 49ers, york? >> york, yeah. >> i imagine they are involved in this decision whether to keep him or not? >> think they are trying to do what's best for their team overall look at the whole situation. how does he come out of this apologize. poem suggesting things he could do to written people over. winning football games also
does. that will do what's best for the people. >> if he stays with the 49ers he depose to some stadiums that will will be some heckling. just imagine the heckling goes on when he shows up. >> they play thursday night in final preseason game big military town i expect he will hear it there. >> disclosure they did lose to the packers. that may be part of my view on this. thank you, david. >> thank you. >> developing now and, yes, it is getting worse. more new emails showing the level of communication between the clinton foundation and secretary clinton's top advisor huma abedin. fox news chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is here. >> thank you, greta. these are the new emails that were obtained by the conservative group citizens united. and they had to fight for two and a half years with the state department lawyers just to get access to the emails it really is very confirmatory of what we have seen so far which is that there was this seamness relationship between the clinton aids at the state department and the clinton foundation. and there was really a very concerted effort to try and get special access for some these donors.
>> well, these are more emails. it's a confirmation of it. so there is no big surprise. i mean, so, you know, now what? >> the big surprise would be if we saw something slightly different in the way that these access to dinners were arranged or hot key players are. pretty clear right now the state department state department human that abedin. she was the pivot point for the clinton foundation and the top official there doug band. >> who she later went to work for. >> that's correct. >> it's a little bit cozier that be that. >> very tight technical term. >> she had a duel job. both at the state department and with him. >> that's right. in fact, she had they hats that she wore at the state department for a period of time having three different sets of employed. the headline would be that these emails really sort of further strengthen the case that there was this very seamness relationship in terms of the sharing of information and taking these clinton foundation donors and getting them kind of
access that the average person would not get without that kind of donation. >> and the clinton campaign says, what? >> clinton campaign says well, the state department, which, to me, part of the story is that the state department has become a defender in chief for then secretary clinton. >> which is not their job. >> this is not their job. they are paid by the taxpayer. it's interesting to me that you have seen them take a much more political tone in their response, -- at least to me in their responses. they said no laws were broken and part of the job of being at the state department which is absolutely true is building relationships and trying to decide who is going to get access to whom. >> one quick question. the fbi targeting a state election? >> that's right. second set of documents fbi flash alert that went out after there was a breach of a state elections board website and then also an attempted attack on another one. and our contacts say that it really is the m.o. of these russian-backed cyber militias. that's important because what we have seen in the last three months is really
almost a strategic gathering of intelligence. the dnc, the dccc elects people to the house. and then the attempted breach on the foundation as well. >> none into the rnc as far as we can see. they have a more so he first at this indicated that we haven't looked into that. >> you have got to assume they have been in the rnc, too but you have not been able to identify it yet. >> catherine, thank you. >> you're welcome. >> a bad day for secretary clinton's top advisor besides the new emails. huma abedin has announced she is investigating? her husband former congressman anthony weiner. rob schmidt is here to explain. rob? >> real rough day former congressman weiner losing two jobs one is contributor to new york station one and the other writing columns for the new york daily's news. also huma abedin announcing she is celebrating from him saying, quote: after long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, i have made the decision to separate from my husband, anthony and i remain devoted to doing what is best for our son who is the light of
our life. during this difficult time i ask for respect for our privacy. , now, this after the "new york post" revealed a new scandal. it is the third time that anthony weiner has publicly embarrassed himself and his family. wiener was cost sectioning with a 40-something divorce say. told the post they have been in contact for 19 months but never met in person. the most jarring the smaller picture on that post cover shows weiner now a house husband in his underwear laying in bed next to toddler son when he took that photo. woman remaining anonymous responded to that photo you realize can you see your blank in that pick. using the former politician's last name of course reference to something else. anthony weiner was a democratic congressman 2011 when he resigned photo surfaced from him in his underwear he had sent to college student in washington state. weesh tried to revive his career by running in new york city in 2013.
his numbers tanked when he was caught sexting yet again under carlos danger. right now weiner is not talking about this. his twitter account has been deache activated. greta? >> that comes under the title finally he is deactivated. thank you for the record and welcome to the fox news channel. >> thank you. see you later. >> secretary clinton may be leading in many polls news out today could give donald trump fresh ammunition. "on the record" political panel is here. massive manhunt underway. murder suspect confessing to murder on facebook and then going on the run. ♪ mapping the oceans. where we explore. protecting biodiversity. everywhere we work. defeating malaria. improving energy efficiency. developing more clean burning natural gas. my job? my job at exxonmobil? turning algae into biofuels. reducing energy poverty in the developing world. making cars go further with less. fueling the global economy. and you thought we just made the gas.
that? have they released any information about the vehicle he might be driving? >> yes, he might be driving in a volkswagen jetta. according to vehicle registration data, he owns one. >> and of course, any color and idea -- i assume it's north carolina tag, plates? any idea on the color? >> no. all we have is the type of car he has. >> all right. so it's a jetta and the pictures on the screen if anyone has
seen this man, he is wanted for murder and he is on the run and thought to be armed and dangerous. call the police if you see him driving a jet attachment

the hits keep coming for the clinton campaign. new released emails show a direct connection between the clinton foundation and the hillary clinton led state department. top donors tried to get special favors and some donors did, in fact, get them. chairman of the oversight committee congressman ron desantos goes "on the record." good evening, sir. >> good evening, greta. >> well, we have heard this before that there are emails connecting the clinton foundation with staff over at the state document who worked directly with secretary of state hillary clinton. then secretary of state hillary clinton. what are you going to do about it, if anything? >> well, i have said for over a year that we needed to have a special counsel investigate not only the email and top secret information but also the clinton foundation because whether you have is a lot of money going into this foundation. some of it was from american citizens but a lot of it was from foreign citizens and even foreign governments and then you had actions that the state department took in different instances and those need to be vetted and see whether there was a
pay-to-play going on. emails were disturbing. want to lock further. i would also say the fact that she didn't turn over the clinton foundation, many of the clinton foundation emails and the fact that her attorneys used bleach bit to wipe the server, to my, that indicates that there is where there is smoke there is fire. >> there are a couple issues on the table there first of all, as to secretary clinton herself, the fbi director comey has said that he does not recommend going any further, he does not recommend, for instance, sending it to a grand jury. as to whether or not the clinton foundation should be investigated, you say that might need a special prosecutor but the fact is that you have got a u.s. attorney in the southern or eastern district of new york. you have prosecutors there who are perfectly able to do that. i imagine if you thought that had merit that you might make a recommendation or somebody to do that. that might be a means to do that. is that fair? >> it would be if that were
what were happening. we have had reports that the fbi has tried to inv the foundation and attorney general lynch put the gobash on it they won't comment on what's going on. we don't know whether this is being investigated at all. if you have an attorney general who is willing to let the u.s. attorneys do their jobs, then, yeah, you don't maybe need one. but i would say though given all that's happened with attorney general lynch, meeting with bill clinton, the way she performed in front of the judiciary committee, refused to answer questions, i don't think a lot of us have confidence in her handling anything more with the clinton case. and, remember, comey did not recommend prosecution for the classified information mishandling. but he did say that hillary did not tell the truth when she said she turned over all her work-related emails. they found thousands of emails and obviously were getting thousands more now. many of them had to do with the clinton foundation. >> now, in terms of director
comey a former just direct attorney himself. do you think that was his opinion having been a prosecutor himself head the fbi or do you think the fbi using a crass term that the fix was in something sinister about his recommendation. >> i think the justice department told him, look, we have concerns about using gross negligence even though that's the standard, even though the justice department will prosecute simple negligence in things like environmental cases. i think they said we want you to bring us facts that show she intended to disclose this information or to harm the country. and, of course, that's not what 18 usb 793 is trying to protect dependence. there are other statutes that can get that conduct. they wanted to impose a duty on high public officials to behave themselves in a way that's appropriate and not be extremely careless. so i think he interpreted a different statute than the one congress enacted and i think part of that was because of the prosecutors
at the justice department and their guidance to him. >> and you don't think that he would overrule that if in his judgment he thought that was wrong? >> well, look, if they are telling him they went intend to harm the united states, that's usually how it works. where you have the criminal investigators will defer to the prosecutor. now, obviously, he has extensive experience himself. >> here is the thing, congressman, you know what though? if the fbi director thinks that he is getting some sort of command influence from the justice department or some bad direction, i would hope that he would have a stiff enough spine to make his own decisions, own recommendations. i don't know that it is. that's where this discussion is. either he was right in his recommendation or he is caving to the justice department. right? >> well, or he is just wrong on the law. maybe he agrees with the justice item. the bottom line is he said she was effectively grossly negligent in how she handled this. that's what the statute requires. loretta lynch, when we asked her about it, she wouldn't
even talk about how they view the law generally, much less the facts of this case. so we got no insight from attorney general lynch at all to try to clarify it. >> i think your best chance if you are going to get a whistle blower if you are going to get information if there is more it be happen had. >> thank you for joining us. >> happy to. >> annie linskey and from "fortune magazine" nina easton. is any of this email stuff at this point going to have any impact on the election? i guess it's not going to impact democrats? it's not going to impact republicans. but on independents and undecides. >> it hasn't impacted the race so far. there have been dramatic developments. have you had the fbi director show that she has exposed confidential information, national security information. we have seen that she didn't tell the truth. we have seen now that there is porous borders between the clinton foundation and the state department. the polling that really is
fascinating is that right after comey came out and said, you know, she was reckless, careless with this information, a majority of the public thought he should have taken action, even though he didn't. yet, polls that came out just a week later showed her still ahead of donald trump in the campaign. you're getting down to what's the alternative. >> you know, i find, this i was off for a couple days last week so this morning when i came in a question about the emails. i said are these new emails or different emails? i'm so confused now whether we have new emails showing more connection or less connection? don't we already know about this connection and so what does this all mean? >> that's part of the problem with this story, right? is that it just like think it absolutely will never go away because there is always going -- we are going to get probably another 15,000 emails. people are going to scroll through those emails for any name that's linked to the thousands and thousands of donors the clinton foundation or the people connected to those donors.
i don't aagree it's having no impact. if you think about it, hillary clinton has so many things going for her right now. yet, we are all talking about this. and, you know, if donald trump has any chance at this election, it's that this kind of thing keeps going and the connection becomes even more clear. i think that's the thing we still haven't had that email from hillary clinton just saying a million dollars and i will get your visa taken care of. >> i think that the only impact it might have is when she is on that debate stage and she is asked the questions about that. she is going to be prepared for it but if the question -- there may be some tough questions about those. >> she will be prepared. >> again, it depose back to i agree it's definitely keeping her numbers lower than they would be otherwise. you go into this race with a republican nominee who has got a lot of flaws, and with the demographics working in favor of the democrats, not the republicans, you could argue she should be much higher. >> but it doesn't matter if
her numbers are lower if she is still winning. it doesn't matter if she wins by a little bit or a whole bunch recommendation it kind of does. if it's a landslide, that's going to cause real serious rethinking within the republican party. if it's a weeker, the dynamics are going to be different. going back to your debate question, okay, she answers an email question. she answers a clinton foundation question. she will be very practiced if in how she does it something happen like donald trump doesn't know something. that's not going to be the headline out of the debate, i bet. we will see but i bet. >> let's say you are right and that the poll numbers today are the same that they are in november. but we're already talking about a special prosecutor for another clinton administration. i mean, you know, it is going to effect. >> clinton administration there will be a no special prosecutor. it will be her attorney general who will have to appoint one. >> that's a good point. >> annie and nina, thank you both for joining us. super star dwyane wade's cousin, a mother of four,

how many more shootings will it take for african-americans and latinos to vote trump equals safe? the chicago police superintendent somewhat dismissed trump's statement saying if he has a ha jik bullet solve the problems in chicago or anywhere please share it however, chicago police are campaigning about the laws and using the aldridge murder as an example. the suspects were well-known to police and the justice system. the oldest 26 years old. both of them slapped with the title career criminal. documented gang members, convicted felons, at least one with a gun conviction out on the street having served just a portion of their sentences. aldridge was not the target. a man who apparently looked at the brothers funny, drew their aggression but he was not hit. the 32-year-old mother pushing a newborn was struck in the head and arm. the police superintendent says this case is note worthy, not because of the connection to an nba super star, because it's an example of what police are up against. now, a spokesman tells me that some 64 people were shot over the weekend in chicago. 86 them died of their wounds
and police knew an overwhelming majority of them. people who engage in gunfire are often the targets of gunfire. but the spokesman complains that cops can only arrest violent people. they can't make them serve their whole sentence. greta? >> mike, thank you. and what a terrible story that poor woman just pushing her infant in a stroller. >> yeah. >> now to some breaking news just moments ago. california lawmakers made sure some like broke turner will not get a light sentence for rape. turner a former stanford swimmer sparked national outrage when he was given just six months in jail for raping unconscious classmate. new bill passed closes the leadership hole that allowed the judge to go easy on turner. turner will be released on friday after serving just three months behind bars. severe weather looming for several parts of the country. are you in the path of a storm or the potential flooding? that forecast straight ahead. and don't forget to watch sean hannity tonight at 10:00 p.m. eastern. donald trump's campaign manager kellyanne con v.a. joins tonight at 10:00 p.m.
