tv   Shepard Smith Reporting  FOX News  September 6, 2016 12:00pm-1:01pm PDT

12:00 pm
straight ahead is my friend, bill hemmer, who is standing by and in today for shepard. now, here's bill. good afternoon. thanks for being here. >> thank you, martha. today's fallout from benghazi. new released e-mails showing how clinton tried to manage a showdown on capitol hill. and the dozens of lawsuits now underway that could expose thousands of more documents ahead of the election. and a new survey showing donald trump in the lead and how both candidates are focusing hard on those swing battleground states, which might include texas. and the story of a murder suspect who broke his handcuffs, escaped from a locked room and stole a pickup truck to make his getaway. he's still on the run now. it's all ahead in the next hour, right here.
12:01 pm
i'm bill hemmer in for shepard smith. new e-mails showing that she helped stay her first testimony on benghazi. fox news was the first to report on them the exchanges show back in january of 2013, a top state department official, an adviser to secretary clinton, claims he fed two topics to the rank democrat on the senate foreign relations committee, bob me d menend menendez, and when clinton appeared before that committee, the first question senator menendez asked her covered both topics. the secretary's whereabouts on the attack of benghazi and her decision making. this is the latest document released tied to clinton's e-mails. and "the wall street journal" now reports thousands of more pages of clinton documents are already set for release. this as federal courts wage
12:02 pm
dozens of lawsuits, mostly from conservative groups and republican operatives. last week, an fbi summary said that clinton believed a "c" document was somehow relate ed to alphabetical order. analysts say the e-mail scandal may be dragging down hillary clinton's campaign in recent polling numbers show that race tightening as of today. a new cnn survey out today shows 50% of voters claim donald trump is honest and trustworthy, compared to just 35% for clinton. we will have much more in a moment here on that poll and others. but first, back to hillary clinton, now on the stump in tampa, florida. >> you all know the story. some of you read the book. some of you have seen the movie. but there's one thing i want to tell you, because it demonstrates again what our values are as americans.
12:03 pm
remember, donald trump has said he would order american troops to torture. he would order american troops to murder family members of terrorists. that's what he has said. heedless of the consequences that that would lead to in terms of putting americans all over the ordinarily at even greater risk. but here's what happened that night in pakistan. and this is not an often-told part of the story. so i want to tell you, particularly the young people here, particularly active duty and military veterans like mary, if you saw any of the reenactment, you know that one of the helicopters clipped its tail as it was going into the courtyard on the wall. it disabled that helicopter. now, thankfully, every contingency had been thought through. and so we were prepared for that. the military was prepared. they could get another helicopter there to take out the
12:04 pm
s.e.a.l.s who were going to have to blow up the disabled helicopter. after rushing into the compound, taking out the two bodyguards, taking out bin laden's son, taking out bin laden, they knew they had to get out of there. and anytime there could have been pakistani military wondering, what's going on? something's happening. this is a military garrison town. so time was really precious. but here's what the s.e.a.l.s did. before they blew that helicopter up, they took out all the women and children, family members of terrorists, including the worst terrorist of all. they took them out of the compound, around the back, to safety, before they blew that helicopter up.
12:05 pm
that, donald trump, is what american honor looks like. [ cheers and applause ] >> i want to mention three other threats. one threat right here at home. the epidemic of gun violence. and we have got to have comprehensive background chex, close the gun show loophole, close the online loophole, and the able of people on the terrorist watch list buying a gun in america. this agenda, i just briefly outlined, is supported by a vast majority of americans and a vast majority of american gun owners. and it's time we all said in one voice, hey, we can respect the second amendment, we can respect the right to own arms, but we
12:06 pm
don't want people who shouldn't have guns in the first place killing anybody else ever again. another threat to our country is climate change. 2016 was the hottest year on record and the science is clear. it's real and wreaking havoc on nations across the world. last week's hurricane is another example of what extreme weather can cause. i send my thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by hermine. but this is not the last one that's going to hit florida given what's happening in the climate. nobody knows that better than folks right here in tampa and in the broader region. >> so hillary clinton relaying a story about the bin laden raid, about what navy s.e.a.l.s did that night in pakistan, also talking about the threat of isis there. we were discussing some of these e-mails that have now been made
12:07 pm
public that go right to the stage management that was conducted during her testimony before congress. katherine harris is live in washington. you were the first to report it. what can we say about what sort of management was in store? >> these e-mails were first obtained by the group, citizens unites, who were seeking dou ii documents from the state department. in this exchange from 2013, chelsea uses a pseudonym, diane reynolds on and is it reads in part, we wired that menendez would provide an opportunity to address two topics we immediated to debunk. this e-mail from chris stevens about moving locations. that is a reference to ambassador chris stevens, who was one of four americans killed in the 2012 terrorist attack, along with foreign service officer, sean smith, and former
12:08 pm
navy s.e.a.l.s ty woods and glen doherty who died protecting the base. >> can you give us your insights on the decision making process regarding the location of the mission? and as part of that, can you also in your response, you touched upon it in your opening statement, but what actions were you and your staff taking the night of september 11th and into september the 12th? >> first, you're right, mr. chairman, there was an ongoing discussion. >> also today, the chairman of the house government oversight committee has written to the u.s. attorney near washington asking him to investigate whether clinton and her team obstructed justice by deleting thousands of e-mails that were subject to a court preservation order and within the last hour, clinton has responded to reporters about that question and says she has no reservations that her aids did anything wrong. >> have you reached out to the clinton team? have you gotten a response to
12:09 pm
all of this? >> i have. first we heard from citizens united who released this statement. it reads in part, this e-mail chain provides a rare behind the scenes look at what benghazi related issues the clinton campaign had concerns about and what they had plotted out before hand with a democrat committee member. we asked the clinton campaign and the senator's office this morning if there was coordination between the two groups in advance of the hearing. what was meant by this term "wired"? and how these e-mails are consistent with the independent oversight rule of congress. the senator's office told me last hour that they would not comment. the clinton campaign confirmed that they have our questions and they may get back to us later today. >> we are on standby. katherine harris, thank you in washington. i want to bring in glenn hall, the editor of the "wall street journal." part of the challenge for the clinton team now is getting beyond this. >> it won't go away. >> it appears the drip, drip, drip, will always be with them. what do you have? >> that's exactly right. it's going to stay, because they
12:10 pm
can't control the timeline. and these are coming through various lawsuits from judicial watch, citizens united, but the state department has to vet and reveal. there's no way for the clinton team to control when the message comes out. they would love to put this behind them, but it's going to keep coming, a new batch of e-mails, another new batch of e-mails, each time reminding us of some of those issues that are causing those trustworthy numbers in the polls. >> do you think that's what the wear and tear is about in the polls. >> i think it wears and tears over time. exactly right, bill. we've seen these numbers coming down, started to see donald trump's numbers creeping up. and that gap has narrowed in the real clear politics numbers as 3.9%. >> let me show you what the fbi found. some of the key findings on screen. clinton could not reveal training on handling classified documents. did not understand the "c" markings meant confidential. did not realize done strike documents were classified. and used 13 separate mobile
12:11 pm
devices, two destroyed with a hammer. >> all from those fbi documents, where they decided not pursue, but decided it was very careful. the impact is not just on the trustworthiness side, but on this question of is she ready for this office? does she have what it take? does she have the technological know-how. did she know what she was doing? and some of these answers give give away to a little bit of skepticism. >> and you also report that the tenor of her campaign will start changing as a result. how? >> we've been hearing about that from the clinton campaign, saw it where she's going back and talked to reporters on her flight recently. you're starting to see her engage more. she needs to take back control of the narrative. for a while she was sitting back and letting donald trump do his thing. he steals a lot of air out of the room. and he's capable of doing himself harm as well as good.
12:12 pm
now i think she's going to need to engage more and take control of the narrative. >> we'll talk to jennifer griffin in a moment about that, two more final points with you. how much of this could be white noise, where voters say, i've heard it before and i've made up my point? >> there's a lot in these e-mails that isn't new, for sure. it just repeats and reminds us of the issues that came out. it reminds voters s of the way e clintons have tried to control outcomes. you saw that with the menendez issue. the sense of her being a political insider in a year when people are against political insiders, could do harm. >> your colleague most highly qualified presidential candidate in years, or a slippery and secretive insider in a year when people are seeking authenticity and truth telling above all else. >> jerry has a great analysis, saying, which of these two clintons are the voters buys into it. and we're seeing there's a question. >> glenn hoff of the "wall street journal." thank you. in a moment, here for about nine
12:13 pm
months, hillary clinton has not held a news conference, but now she is finally starting to do q&a sessions on her new campaign plane. taking questions on everything from e-mails to the foundation to her health, ahead of the election. her answers and what she is saying today, coming up inside the fox news desk.
12:14 pm
hillary clinton: i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. vo: in times of crisis america depends on steady leadership. donald trump: "knock the crap out of them, would you? seriously..."vo: clear thinking... donald trump: "i know more about isis than the generals do, believe me." vo: and calm judgment. donald trump: "and you can tell them to go fu_k themselves." vo: because all it takes is one wrong move. donald trump audio only: "i would bomb the sh_t out of them." vo: just one.

remember here at ally, nothing stops us from doing right by our customers. who's with me? i'm in. i'm in. i'm in. i'm in. ♪ ♪ one, two, - wait, wait. wait - where's tina? doing the hand thing? yep! we are all in for our customers. ally. do it right. hillary clinton talking with reporters on her campaign plane for a second day in a row today. the democratic nominee taking questions on a few different
12:16 pm
topics onboard. she talked about her family's foundation and whether or not her daughter, chelsea, will step down if clinton wins the white house in november. >> chelsea clinton does stay on the foundation's board, which the foundation has said very definitively that she will, or that's the plan currently, do you think that could raise legitimate questions? >> it doesn't matter how many times you ask me and how you ask me, it will be decided after the election. >> so clinton saying that the critics have been saying that she's been dodging the media about questions about her family's foundation and the whole e-mail server controversy. until year, it has been 275 days since clinton held a news conference. she spoke with reporters yesterday about 25 minutes, more again today. jennifer griffin is live with the clinton team in tampa, florida, and clinton went after trump today, right? >> reporter: nothing new there, bill.
12:17 pm
what was new, in the last two days, we've been on the plane with her, and she's come back to take more than a dozen questions each day, from reporters, about 25 minutes yesterday, 25 minutes today, from everything from the foundation to her e-mails. just here in tampa, she just gave a speech which was filled with red meat for the military community. this is a largely, large military community here. she took -- she released an ad today, in which she hit trump on doing, among other things, firing military service members who had worked for his company, and had gone overseas to serve. she was asked on the plane today whether there was a double standard for her and trump, in terms of how the press looks into their various so-called scandals. here's what she said. >> do i think that a lot of the issues that are raised about trump are just missed because somehow the american public has
12:18 pm
factored into their assessment of him that that's the kind of guy he is, right? and a lot of his behavior coming from him seems to be expected somehow. >> reporter: in particular, she said the press was not focusing enough on the trump foundation's donation to florida attorney general, pam bondi, as she was deciding whether to investigate trump university. a clear example of what her campaign calls trump's pay-to-play ethics. so she's hitting back on that front. again, it's the second day that she's taking questions onboard her plane. she looks very relaxed when she talked to the press, and we expect to hear more from her in the coming days. >> was she asked about the recent polling and the dip in those polls, jennifer? >> reporter: in fact, i did ask her about those polls, i asked her twice, and here was one of her answers. >> and what do you make of the cnn poll that shows him up by two points?
12:19 pm
>> i really pay no attention to polls. when they're good for me and there have been a lot of them that have been good for me recently, i don't pay attention. when they're not so good, i don't pay attention. we are on a course that we are sticking with. >> reporter: i also asked her about the 88 general who is came out in support of donald trump today. she was not worried, she said. she said mitt romney, at this point in the election, had between 300 and 500 generals and admirals who came out in his favor. she pointed to the long list of former republican national security advisers and generals who had come out to endorse her far more than any other presidential candidate has ever had. here in tampa, she gave a speech talking about her national security credentials. when she talked about her role in the bin laden raid when she was in the situation room, there was a shout from the audience, there were about 1,500 people there and there was a woman who shouted, you go, girl. and it was, essentially, she
12:20 pm
re-told the story of how she got bin laden and the difficult decision-making process and how she was one of the early ones to encourage the president to go after bin laden. >> more on that poll jennifer mentioned a moment ago. showing donald trump ahead of hillary clinton in a statistical dead heat. that survey also reveals what voters ha voters have say about who they trust to handle the biggest of issues. we'll break down the numbers coming up inside the fox news desk. remember here at ally, nothing stops us from doing right by our customers. who's with me? i'm in. i'm in. i'm in. i'm in. ♪ ♪ one, two, - wait, wait. wait - where's tina? doing the hand thing? yep! we are all in for our customers. ally. do it right.

new poll today showing that donald trump has pulled ahead in the race for the white house. that's a cnn survey. shows trump has a two-point lead over hillary clinton, 45-43%, within the margin of error. libertarian nominee, gary johnson, 7% of that poll, and the green party's nominee, jill
12:24 pm
stein, at 2%. that cnn survey also shows trump has the edge among independents. and look at that number there. 49 to 29%. johnson at 16, jill stein at 6%. yet another poll shows most voters say they don't like either hillary clinton or donald trump. according to the survey from franklin pierce university and the "boston herald," 57% of voters say they view trump negatively. 55% say they have an unfavorable opinion of hillary clinton. let's put it all together now with james arbinger with real clear politics. so reince priebus made a prediction a few weeks ago. he said by labor day weekend, trump would be tied or in the lead. was he right? >> well, it appears that it's certainly trending that way. i don't know, according to that cnn poll, donald trump is in the lead, which is exactly what reince priebus said two weeks ago. he said, by labor day, donald trump could be in the lead or t tied. hillary clinton still has about a 3.3 percentage point lead nationally, but certainly, when
12:25 pm
we were looking at things in mid-august and hillary clinton was approaching 60%, had about an eight-percentage point lead, things have tightened quite a bit since then. >> is she static in the polls you're looking at now? >> at this point, she's about where she was at the very end of the conventions, about 46%. she did get a little bit of a bump after the convention. some of that might be due to her own convention, some might be due to some of the controversies and problems donald trump had in early august. so she pushed upwards of about 50%. but for the most part, she has been static at about that 45 to 46% percentage point rate. >> i just showed the independent number, which could be insignificant. something we need to watch closely in the next 60 days. why do single women go for hillary, but married women go for donald trump? >> it's just sort of the way we've seen it in presidential elections in the past. married women are traditionally
12:26 pm
a little bit more conservative. they've leaned towards republicans in the past, mitt romney won that voter group in 2012. and often, single women tend to be a little bit younger and a little bit more liberal, and so, you know, we've seen them consistently vote democratic, particularly the young single women. >> that was a group romney was going for in a big way four years ago and did not do as well as he had hoped. a couple numbers here, too. trump on honesty and the economy. he wins in both categories, 56-41% on the economy, 50%-35% for honesty. one more i want to tick through right now. she wins on foreign policy, at 56 to 40%. he wins on terrorism, 51 to 45. can you put a theme together on all of that, james? >> that's a really confusing number. and it would be interesting to talk to some of these voters and see how they separate terrorism versus foreign policy. i think in the end, that's probably a good number for donald trump. because terrorism is a little bit more of a feeling of your security at home.
12:27 pm
it's a little bit more of concerns about attacks in america. we've seen some attacks in the u.s. over the last year, and that's a real concern for americans. foreign policy is sort of more of an amorphous kind of difficult thing to really put your finger on when it comes to voters. so hillary clinton clearly has the trust when it comes to foreign policy. but when we're talking about what drives voters to the polls, what drives them to make decisions when they're voting, i think terrorism and concerns about terrorism is probably going to push voters to make hair choice, much more than foreign policy itself. >> one last thing. the "boston herald" put a poll out today, and they found that their numbers today are exactly the same as they were two months ago. and you think about this, you think about the august that trump had. he had to zig and zag just about every day. what's that say? >> yeah, trump had a really bad beginning of august, and it kind of continued through the month for him. you know, a lot of problems, but hillary clinton, towards the end of the month, we had questions about the clinton foundation, continued questions as more comes out about her e-mail situation. she had a chance, i think, to
12:28 pm
really pull away in august, when donald trump was going through all of these issues and all of these problems, and she wasn't able to do it, because as we've seen consistently, voters view both of them very unfavorably. a lot of votes for hillary clinton right now and a lot of support is just negativity towards donald trump. so we see those numbers tightening, because i think there isn't a clear opinion from voters that they don't trust or view favorably either candidate. >> debate number one, 20 days from today. thank you, james. good to have you on today. out of washington, thanks. donald trump picking up a boost from dozens of retired military leaders. that and one new poll argues that you can put the normally republican state of texas in the toss-up column. really? that's coming up at the bottom of the hour. back after this.

12:34 pm
short time ago. we watched that here. trump talking about how to rebuild our nation's military, and the problems facing the veterans affairs administration. the republican nominee went after hillary clinton, claiming that she is not doing enough for the v.a.. >> it's such a big problem, and we have no clue. hillary clinton said everything's working just fine. she doesn't know that people are standing online for seven days to see a doctor and dying, mike. they're dying online. >> trump also picking up a big endorsement from dozens of the top military leaders today. the campaign released an open letter from 88 retired generals and admirals, saying america needs a, quote, course correction on national security. the letter reads in part, quote, we believe that such a change can only be made by someone who has not been deeply involved with and substantially responsible for the hollowing out of our military and the burgeoning threats facing our country around the world. for this reason, we support donald trump's candidacy to be our next commander in chief, end
12:35 pm
quote. campaign carl cameron live in greenville, north carolina, where trump holds a rally later tonight. carl, trump's town hall today, a different format for him. how so? >> reporter: it was. well, it was essentially hosted by one of his top advisers and endorsers, former lieutenant governor, retired lieutenant general, retired mike flynn, who is one of donald trump's top national security advisers. and he sort of tossed questions to trump, and trump basically answered them with his same sort of rally rhetoric, that you would expect at one of his tun telepromptered speeches. tends to be a little off the cuff, a little bit loose with details, and more abouts a separational goals. and that's really what it was. but it also served as an opportunity in a key state, virginia, where there's a high population of both active and retired military for him to point out the endorsement that uh yo highlighted. those 88 officers, navy and all other service branches include 18 three and four-star officers. and their embrace of donald
12:36 pm
trump and repudiation of hillary clinton is a very big deal and the fact that it comes after labor day is by design. both campaigns ramping up very aggressively. >> you are in north carolina, and you've got virginia to the north. and you could give pennsylvania and ohio and florida a lot of attention. but you have to win where you are, as well, in order to win the white house, plain and simple. >> reporter: for decades, republicans have said, you've got to win ohio, florida, and pennsylvania. this time around, they've added north carolina, and virginia is equally important. virginia and north carolina particularly are states that used to be fairly rocked with conservatives. but over the course of the last 10 to 15 years, both have begun to have a demographic shift, particularly in virginia in the northern part of the state, nova, northern virginia, there are a lot more democrats and a lot more liberals than the history of virginia has ever faced. and the same thing is happening in north carolina. there's been a big demographic change. younger families, more
12:37 pm
minorities, it's changing the composite of the vote. and both of these two states are very, very close. in fact, the most recent polls in virginia show that trump is trailing to clinton, and it's virtually neck and neck here. there's a couple of polls that show that trump has an edge, a couple that show that hillary has an edge. but the fact they're in play is really what's important. it's a necessity for trump to protect his flank. these are states that he cannot lose. four of them, for sure, including north carolina, pennsylvania, iowa, and florida. add in virginia, because it's also an east coast voting state, which means it votes early, and trump needs to have a big bandwagon of momentum building across the state on election night, because when we get out into the west, states like colorado and new mexico don't want to hear that states like new mexico and virginia went into the democratic column. >> it's coming up fast. thank you, carl cameron, live in california. hillary clinton now seems to be putting up a fight in some states that traditionally vote republican. a new poll finds that even texas
12:38 pm
could be in play this year. that state hasn't voted democratic in a presidential race since 1976. "the washington post" now lists texas and these other states which we've marked in yellow as toss-ups. among them, states that usually vote republican, like georgia and mississippi. and just this morning, "the dallas morning news" published an anti-trump editorial, that newspaper endorsing the republican presidential nominee in every election going back until 1964 until now. apparently that's over, 50 years later. the paper's editorial board writes, quote, trump's ideas are so far from republicanism that they have spawned a new description, trumpism, end quote. it goes ton to say, donald trump is not qualified to serve as president and does not deserve your vote. i want to bring in our panel now, democratic strategist, brad gersman, and republican strategist, tony seg. gentleman, good afternoon to both of you. >> do people believe those numbers in texas? georgia, arizona?
12:39 pm
>> georgia and arizona make a ton of acceptance. there have been demographic changes that will affect negatively any candidates in those states, african-american populations in georgia. the texas numbers are just so far out field, bill, they don't really go along any other polling we've seen from the state. a democrat ppp poll that came out weeks ago shows donald trump up by six. a local cbs poll out of texas shows trump up by 11. and another problem with this poll that "the washington post" is citing, they really took data starting from august 9th to now. when you do these type of longitudinal polling, they don't accurately reflect the real kind of state of the races as of today. >> it's a fair point. based on the polling we've seen too. >> brad, do you want to tell him he's wrong now? is that -- >> this is really the narrative of the republican party, is that the polls are all wrong and that this is something that, as we parse apart some of the details, it makes a difference. but when you look at the 50,000 view and see what's going on across the country, and why is this happening, and why are
12:40 pm
these traditional red states looking more purple and possibly blue, it's because the rank and file republicans themselves are running from donald trump. and they're stating publicly, that they're going to vote for hillary clinton. >> if you go deep into that cnn poll earlier today, you find that donald trump has locked down 90% of republican voters. hillary clinton has locked down 92% of democratic voters. but if that's true, he's closed the loop on that. >> and you have in a lot of these states, double-digit votes in pennsylvania and ohio. you have double-digit leads among independent voters for trump. you want to talk about polls, i'm delighted to. donald trump has swung an 11-point swing from where he was in the beginning of august to where he is now. he now leads hillary clinton in that cnn/orc poll by two points. she led him by nine a month ago. the polling trajectory is in donald trump's favor. what we want to talk about state by state, those state polls lag behind the national numbers. that's a fact in analyzing polling. but you want to stand beyond that, look at the other states
12:41 pm
we're not talking about. the blue states like michigan, ohio, pennsylvania, iowa, all now within the statistical margin of error. florida. some state polling coming out of florida and ohio now show donald trump three to four points in some cases ahead. so it's moving in the right direction. >> if that is true and there is movement in this, brad, what accounts for that? is it the e-mails? >> the republicans have done a terrific job -- i think you're hitting the nail on the head. look, give them credit, they've done a terrific job in continuing to hammer hillary over the head, with the things she's been hit over the head with for weeks, months, and years. so they keep, you know, reviving that. but on the other hand, hillary's making a couple of mistakes. she's staying very quiet. this can't be a rose garden or a secretive kind of campaign. >> so campaigns by nature -- >> i don't like that at all. i don't think that's something you should be doing. everything's so fast and fluid, you have to be out in front in politics these days. and the munews cycles are so fluid. trump has made some major missteps, but on the other hand,
12:42 pm
at least he's staying out in front of the news. here's my point, hillary will now start stepping out, and the debate will be a great opportunity to see the two head to head. i think that's going to a new start. >> to both of you and to viewers watching at home, if you want to take it up to 50,000 feet, as you suggest, brad, where is this race today, tony? >> it's a total toss-up. the fairest way to analyze this is hillary started the post-convention period with a significant double-digit lead. donald trump has erased that lead up to labor day, now. we start this as a toss-up race with him on the right trajectory. she certainly has some advantages in organization, the traditional aspects of campaigning and fund-raising, but he's grabbed the narrative. he owns all the macrodynamics of this race. the issues, the enthusiasm, and hillary knows she needs to motivate democrats. watch where bill clinton goes, watch where tim kaine goes. they're going to very niche pockets in these swing states where they know they need to motivate largely minority voters. because for her this is going to be getting more democrats out
12:43 pm
and convincining independents - >> is this a coin toss? >> it's a landslide. it's not a matter of whether hillary wins, it's by how much, and that's what the democrats are working on. >> gentleman, thanks to both of you. i thought you would mike it up a little bit more. a little civil after the weekend. thank you, tony. thank you, brad. hurricane hermine is now history and now there's a new storm hammering a popular tourist town and forecasters warn it could bring dangerous flooding in the southwest. we will tell you where, when we continue, next. for lower back pain sufferers,

12:47 pm
southwestern u.s. will now feel the affects of newton and there's a possibility of flooding. janice dean is keeping a close eye on that from the weather center now. what's happening with newton? >> we're still watching newton, as you mentioned, making landfall across the beautiful tourist area of baja, california. the storm is going to move north and eastward, already still seeing a lot of heavy rain, as the storm is, you know, kind of lumbering across the baja. we're looking at the potential of a storm that will weaken over the next couple of days, but bring plentiful moisture to northwestern mexico and into the desert southwest. and because this is a desert, flash flooding is going to be a huge concern for parts of arizona, new mexico, as well as texas. so still remaining in tact on wednesday, as it pushes into the southwest, and again, the storm will dissipate fairly quickly, but we're worried about the flooding potential, so advisories are in place for parts of arizona, new mexico, as well as texas.
12:48 pm
and there's the forecast rainfall, bill, as we go further out in time, certainly for the baja here, 6 to 8 inches, isolated amounts of higher totals and northwest mexico and into the southwest, we'll be watching that -- >> got it. so that's from one coast to the another. hermine, you weren't one of those who were saying the sky was falling, were you? >> i was cautiously warning people all up and down the northeast coast. we knew we weren't going to have a landfall, but it was depending on how close this storm tracked the to the shore. so that's why the hurricane center did their job of putting tropical storm advisories up, from anywhere from the delmarva up towards new england. and i'm just glad everybody is okay. that is my main mandate, is to make sure people are prepared. and if it doesn't happen, at least everyone was safe. there's the last three hours. still a lingering storm, which is what we knew. but the steering currents, that is what we didn't know. as you can see over the next couple of days, lingering off the coast of long island, still watching connecticut. and also parts of new england. they have dropped the
12:49 pm
advisories. no more tropical storm warnings. that's a good sign, but, you don't want to be in the water. the rip currents are very the exceptionally high. there are your wind gusts all along the coast. this is going to be with us, bill, for the next several days. and even my husband, who likes to surf, he is staying out of the water, so you should, too. >> cautiously, as she goes. >> thank you, janice, good to see you. iran has to change its behavior after seven of its boats harassed a patrol ship. that's the word from the pentagon today. a defense official telling fox news, the "uss firebolt" had to move out of the way of one of theian boats, narrowly avoiding a collision. it happened over the persian gulf over the weekend in the hospital the first time, either. u.s. officials have accused iran of harassing the navy in that region. defense officials saying it's become more common this year. about a month ago, a u.s. ship fired warning shots to chase off iranian boats in that sea. a man accused of killing a
