tv Shepard Smith Reporting FOX News January 4, 2017 12:00pm-1:01pm PST
whoops! has to be tough dancing around on ice skates in that bear suit. how clever. they got all the publicity they wanted. i'm melissa francis. here's shep on the news deck. >> it's noon on the west coast. 3:00 in new york city where the president-elect is whipping up questions about american intelligence. questioning whether our top agencies have their stories straight on the hacking. and now the head of the c.i.a. is responding. donald trump also tweeting about obama care's problems and republicans meeting with the v.p.-elect mike pence to talk about taking obama care apart. the current president is not giving up without a fight. he's sitting down with democrats to come up with a plan to save his namesake healthcare laws. and hillary clinton's allies gathering to take on trump. their new strategy to fight the president-elect's administration. let's get to it.
>> good afternoon from the deck. who are you with on russian hacking? julian assange or the united states intelligence community? president-elect trump is standing firm with the group that he once called disgraceful and for which he once told us "there should be like the death penalty or something." and with vladimir putin, when it comes to the cyber attacks that interfered with the american election. donald trump is suggesting that united states officials could be trying to find a way to pin the attacks on russia. the report on russian hacking was delayed until friday perhaps to build more of a case. very strange. of course, that's not true according to the white house, at least. they report the briefing was not delayed at all and all americans, all 17 intelligence
american agencies agree, russian was behind the tax and that vladimir putin ordered the hacking. according to the fbi and cia, it was part of an effort to help donald trump win the white house. the president-elect has repeatedly questioned that. on new year's eve, i told the press pool, i just want them to be sure and hacking is a hard thing to prove so it could be somebody else. russia has denied any involvement in the hacking. president-elect trump today used julian assange's own words to suggest that democrats themselves are to blame. donald trump tweeted "julian assange said a 14-year-old could have hacked the podesta e-mails. he said russians didn't give him the info." that was in reference to the interview that assange gave to sean hannity in london.
he says they used a fishing e-mail. he clicked on a malicious link in a fake e-mail. assange denied that russians gave him the information on democrat officials. >> can you say to the american people unequivocally that you didn't get this information about john podesta's e-mails, can you tell the american people 1000% that you didn't get it from russia or anybody associated with russia? >> we can say and have said repeatedly the last two months that our source is not the russian government and it is not state parties. >> there you have it. assange never directly addressed whether his source was some sort of middleman for the russians, which is exactly what our intelligence officials and the white house have suggested. he also never addressed the fact that two other websites published the material. american intelligence officials say both of those websites are
the work of russian agents. team fox coverage with peter doocy and catherine herridge. >> the president will be briefed about the russian hacking issue friday. those issues include john brennan, james clapper and the fbi director, james comey who some democrats blame for interfering in the election process itself by making an announcement of the clinton e-mails days before the election. the president-elect wants the american people to remember also, he wants people to remember what the e-mails said. so donald trump made this point. somebody hacked the dnc but why did they not have hacking
defense like the rnc and why have they not responded to the terrible things that they said? a total double standard. media as usual gave them a pass. so with the inauguration getting closer and closer, the final days of the campaign are becoming a bigger and bigger issue here, shep. >> what is the response from the trump transition team? >> we found out a trio of deputies from the trump white house were named. if you look at their resumes, you get a better idea how things will work over there in about 2 1/2 weeks. the new deputy chief of staff for the white house, katie walsh is from the rnc. the deputy chief of staff for legislative intergovernmental affairs, rick dearborn comes from jeff sessions' office and joe hagan has worked in reagan and bush white houses before. the president-elect said he wants the sec chairman to be jake clayton. he would be in charge of making sure that businesses follow the
rules as regulations become more relaxed. in the last few minutes, we got word that omarosa has been named assistant to the president and director of communications for the office of public liaison. so mr. trump fired her several times on the apprentice but hired her in the white house. jeff? >> peter doocy at trump tower. the c.i.a. chief says people doubt the connection between russia and the hacks on our election need to wait and see the upcoming intelligence report first. john brennan canadian the comments with pbs yesterday. president obama ordered intelligence agencies to conduct a review on the cyber attacks. the report will outline clear evidence showing not only that but how the kremlin interfered. catherine herridge continues from washington. catherine? >> john brennan was pressed on
the hammer's intent, which requires intelligence from spying or electronics intercepts like a phone call with brennan promises specifics. >> do you think the motive of the russians was to help donald trump? >> that's one of the things that will be addressed in the report. i'm not going to address that in advance. >> he mentioned speaking to fox's sean hannity. julian assange said the e-mails was like child play and breaching the security at the dnc and john podesta did not require the skill set of a foreign intelligence service. the senior democrat on the house intelligence committee, adam shipp said that the decision to take the kremlin's denial at face value is treacherous. >> what is the white house saying, catherine? >> the spokesman seemed careful not to go beyond the earlier statement from the intelligence community that the hacks were directed by the russian government. >> it's a definitive statement
from the 17 different agencies of the united states government that deal in intelligence. and this is a report that they put out in october before the election. >> the key thing is there is a difference between what the intelligence community describes in having a high level of confidence in their assessments about the conclusions and what an average person would call smoking-gun evidence. on capitol hill this morning, the vice president elect backed up what his boss has been saying. >> the president-elect and i will receive a briefing from the leadership of our intelligence agency this coming friday. we'll be listening in. i think that the president-elect has expressed his very sincere and healthy american skepticism about intelligence conclusions.
>> this whole thing is really going to go down very quick now in order for the president-elect to get that briefing friday, several things have to happen. number 1, the report, the classified report, has to be complete and then it has to be briefed first and foremost to the president that requested it and it will also be briefed to congress. so the expectation is that all of that will go down tomorrow, shep. >> catherine herridge, thank you. >> thanks. >> and the president-elect giving credibility to julian asank. a man that faces arrest if he walks out his front door. a man that trump called a disgrace. for whom he said, and i quote, "there should be something like the death penalty." now he's the trusted source instead of the 17 national security agencies. so how will that play in the new congress? even most republicans say they believe russia did it. that's next.
imy moderate to severeng crohn's disease. i didn't think there was anything else to talk about. but then i realized there was. so, i finally broke the silence with my doctor about what i was experiencing. he said humira is for people like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common,
and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. if you're still just managing your symptoms, talk with your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible. tech: don't let a cracked windshtrust safelite.plans. with safelite's exclusive "on my way text"... you'll know exactly when we'll be there. giving you more time for what matters most. (team sing) safelite repair, safelite replace. >> more now on donald trump's siding with the wikileaks founder against the u.s. intellige denying that russia interfered with our election. julie is here from the associated press. hi, julie. >> hi. >> he's made a big turn on this matter. the year was 2010. the same matter was under discussion with julian assange
and wikileaks and how he felt about it. they were sort of laying out the rundown what is coming up. and brian asked him a question. listen. >> wikileaks, you had nothing to do with -- >> it's disgraceful. >> there should be something like the death penalty or something. >> the death penalty or something. he's done a 180 since then. >> that's true. i mean, it's not the first time that he's really changed his tone on people. think about the president-elect used to be a democrat, for example. this is a really striking turn of events. not only has trump changed his tune on julian assange, but he's really at odds with most of the republican party over this one. very few people are getting out their alongside julian assange like president-elect trump is. sarah palin is the only one that comes to mind. >> last i checked, she's not in congress. i wonder what the reporting on these members of the republicans
in congress suggest their reaction might be if donald trump pushes this matter. do we know? >> i think there's a lot of irritation here. we're a couple days into the new congress. we're still all feeling out how the president-elect and congress will get along with one another. they had a little bit of an issue yesterday as you discussed with the congressional ethics office. here comes another topic where there's some serious disagreement here between trump and his aides and congress and what they're thinking. seems like we're all eager to learn here what happens after the next couple briefings. first on the hill and then of course to the president-elect himself. >> that will be interesting. you're right. yesterday's matter is there's so much there we can talk about it for an hour. first of all, he tried to kill this -- the congress tried to pull the money out, the republicans in money tried to pull the money out for this group that does investigating on capitol hill, was set up when
there were problems all there. donald trump clearly thought that was a very bad idea and stupid thing to do on the first day. all i took was a tweet. >> that's right. really the common denominator here between that story and what we're talking about today with russia and julian assange and the very big policy differences is that trump is a very public person. he's not expressing dismay behind closed doors or sending signals through aides. he's tweeting about this. that is a new interesting style of presidency that we have coming up. obviously good things about it and especially to lawmakers that may not be used to this, some bad things as well. >> is there a push-back from the fbi and the intelligence agencies? >> right now what we're hearing is a lot of -- there's facts that can't become known yet because of the course of events. we're promised reports that will come out before the end of
obama's term. this is a case where the more the public knows, i think the more comfortable everybody will get with the information. thinking back to what vice president-elect pence said today there's a healthy american skepticism that trump is expressing here. a lot of americans might agree with that. so the more information we learn, the closer maybe trump and congress will come into concert here. >> there was healthy american skepticism when we heard the doctored intelligence information referring to the war in iraq. mike pence will remember that it was cherry-picking of intelligence that got us in that war. it was ant body of intelligence. we know this now. it's documented. it was cherry-picking the intelligence. this wasn't an intelligence failure. it was an analysis failure. >> that's true. this is just such in the early stages here.
if you think about it where, you know, feels like this is going on for a long time, this exploration of what exactly russia's involvement in the election process was. but it's all very new. it's not unexpected that it would take some time to get all of the information out to the public. i think everyone is working as quickly as they can. the difference here is that we now have a president-elect who likes to go public rapidly with whatever he knows and sometimes what he doesn't know. just laying out the mysteries that he says will soon be solved. >> the intel from the briefing should be interesting. thanks, julie. happy new year. ahead, the democrats' new plan to take on the trump administration. hillary clinton's allies getting together to fight that administration as well. so what are they planning? that's next.
>> hillary clinton's allies are kicking up the fight against president-elect trump. according to "the washington post," the democratic national committee is building another war room to take on the administration. the plan is to spotlight any possible conflicts of interest with trump's business empire as well as russia's suspected meddling with our election. how organized is this? >> it's just getting off the ground now. but it seems like it's going to be organized under the auspices of the democratic national committee. we'll see how quickly they can get it going. it's going to be an important thing for them to stay organized within the dnc and with congressional democrats and with democratic strategists at large to try to create a unified voice of opposition to donald trump and congressional republicans
and everything they're trying to do in the new trump administration and to get it organized quickly. >> any names of who is involved? >> we have a couple of staffers both from hillary clinton's communications shop and her campaign and from correct the record, hillary clinton's super pact have joined as well as some people from the dnc, a lot of democratic strategists that have experience with opposition research and have experience with trying to create a media narrative against someone. obviously their experiences in the campaign world. it's essentially shifting the experience of campaign opposition research to doing the same thing but with the white house and the administration. >> james, hate to cut you short. breaking news on fox news channel. the military is giving the president a joint farewell from one of the military bases. which one is it? joint base meyer. the president receiving a
farewell from the military. let's listen in. >> i know that our troops and their families are grateful for the compassion that you and stephanie have shown them over the years. so to you and your family, on behalf of us, thank you for your outstanding service. [applause] general dumper, we relied on you as commandant of the marine in afghanistan and our nation's highest ranking military officer. i thank you and general silva and the entire joint chiefs for the unvarnished military advice you provided for me, for your dedication, your professionalism
and integrity. because of you, because of this team, our armed forced are more integrated and better prepared across all domains. a truly joint force. which is why as a white sox fan i can overlook that you loved the red sox. moreover, on a personal note, outside of your professional qualities, you are a good man. and i am grateful to have worked with you. i thank ellen for allowing you to do this. [applause] to members of congress, vice president biden who along with jill has known the love and the pride and the sacrifice of a
military family, to deputy secretary roark, service secretaries, distinguished guests, dedicated civilians from across the defense department, my national security team, most of all our men and women in uniform, i thank you for this honor. and for the warmth and respect that you've always shope me, the support that you've shown admonish -- michelleand our daughters the past eight years. i recognize the formalities require me listening to praise directed in large part to me, i want to turn the tables. i'm still commander-in-chief. i get to do what i want to do and i want to thank you. of all the privileges of this
office, and there are many, i will miss air force one and i will miss marine one. but i can stand before you today and say there's been no greater privilege and no greater honor than serving as the commander-in-chief of the greatest military in the history of the world. [applause] is when i took office, i noted that presidents and those of you in uniform swear a similar oath. to protect and defend this country and the constitution that we cherish. by stepping forward and volunteering, by raising your right hand and taking that oath, each of you made a solemn pledge. you committed yourselves to a life of service and of
sacrifice. i in turn made a promise to you which to the best of my abilities, i tried to uphold every single day since. that i would only send you in harm's way when it was absolutely necessary, with a strategy and well-defined goals, with the equipment and the support that you needed to get the job done. because that's what you rightfully expect and that's what you right fully deserve. i made that pledge at a time when less than 1% of americans wear the uniform. fewer americans know someone that serves. as a result, a lot of americans don't see the sacrifices that you make on our behalf. as commander-in-chief, i do. i've seen it when i look in the eyes of young cadets knowing that my decisions could send
them into harm's way. i've seen it when i visited the field in baghdad, far from your families, risking your lives so that we'd can live ours safely and in freedom. so you've inspired me. i've been humbled by you consistently. i want every american to know what i know. through year after year after year of continuous military operations, you have earned your place among the greatest generations. the list of accomplishments that joe and ashe so generously mentioned are because of you. it's what i tell my staff, i'm the front man. but you're the ones doing the
work. because of you, our alliances are stronger from europe to the asian pacific. because of you, we surged in afghanistan, trained afghan forces to defend our country. while bringing most of our troops home. today our forces serve there on a more limited mission because we must never again allow afghan to be used for a safe haven and attacks against our nation. it's because of you, particularly our remarkable special forces, that the core al-quaida leadership that attacked us on 9-11 has been decimated. countless terrorist leaders including osama bin laden are gone. from south asia to africa, we have gone after terrorists that threaten us. because of you, we're leading
the global coalition against isil. these terrorists have lost half of their territory, leading their leaders, towns and cities are being liberated and i have no doubt that this terrorist group will be destroyed because of you. you've shown that when it comes to fighting terrorism, yes can be strong and we can be smart. not by letting our forces get dragged into sectarian conflicts and civil wars, but with smart sustainable principled partnerships. that's how we brought most of our troops home from 180,000 in afghanistan and iraq down to 15,000 today. even as we suffer terrible attacks at home from boston, orlando, no foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned an attack on our
homeland the past eight years. because of you, the world has seen the awesome reach of american armed forces. some of the first few weeks of my job, when somali pirates took captain phillips, later on when they kidnapped jessica buchanan, it was you that went in and you that risked everything. you that brought these american home to their families. the world has seen your compassion to help you deliver in times of crisis from an earthquake in haiti to the tsunami in japan. think of ebola and the countless lives this armed forces saved in west africa.
it was you that set up the architecture and set the example for the world's response. one woman in west africa said, we thanked god first and then we thanked america second for caring about us. that's the difference you made. you continue to make in lives of people around the world. as you know well with service comes great sacrifice. after 15 years of war, our wounded warriors bear the scars, seen and unseen. in my visits to their bedsides and rehab centers, i've been in awe watching a wounded warrior grab his walker and pull himself up and through excruciating pain, take a step and then another. we're hearing troops how they grapple with post traumatic
stress. as a military and a nation, we have to keep supporting our resilient and incredibly strong wounded warriors as they learn to walk and run and heal. they find new ways to keep serving our nation. they need to know that we still need your incredible talents. you've given so much to america and i know you have more to give. then you have not seen the depth of true love and true patriotism until you've been to dover. when our troops received our fallen heros on our final journey home. until you have grieved with our gold star families that have given a piece of their heart to
our nation, a son or a daughter, a father or mother, a husband or wife. a brother or a sister. everyone a patriot. every single one of these american families deserves the everlasting gratitude and support of our entire nation. today after two major ground wars, our armed forces have drawn down. that is natural and it is necessary. after reckless budget cuts of sequeste sequester, we need to keep improve the training and modernizing of our forces. let me take this opportunity while i still have it to appeal to our friends from congress that are here. we cannot go back to
sequestration. there's a responsible way forward, investing in america's strengths, our national security and our economic security. investing in the reform and equipment and support that our troops need, including pay and the benefits and the quality of life and education and the jobs that our troops and our veterans and all of your families deserve. but make no mistake. even with the challenge of the recent years, and there have been challenges, our allies and adversaries alike understand america's military is by far the most capable fighting force on the face of the earth. our army tested by years of combat is the best trained force on the planet. our navy is the largest and most lethal in the world on track to
surpass 300 ships. our air force with its presession and reach is unmatched. our marine corp is the only truly expeditionary force. our coast guard is the finest in the world. we're also the best because this military has come to welcome the talents of more fellow americans. service members can now serve the country they love without hiding who they are or who they like. all combat positions in our military are open to women. joe biden and i know that women are at least as strong as men. we're stronger for it. that's one of the reasons that our military stands apart as the
most respected institution in our nation by a mile. the american people -- [applause] the american people look up to you and your devotion to duty and your integrity and your sense of honor and your commitment to each other. one of my proudest achievements is that i have been able to i think communicate through the constant partisan haze along with so many others how special this institution is. and the esteem in which our military is held is held steady and constant and high throughout my presidency. i'm very grateful for that.
because you remind us that we are united as one team. at times of division, you have shown what it means to pull together. so my days as your commandner chief are come to an end. as i reflect on the challenges that we have faced together and on those to come, i believe that one of the greatest tasks before our armed forces is to retain the high confidence that the american people rightly place in you. there's a responsibility for not just those of you in uniform but those that lead you. it's the responsibility of our nation. so we're called to remember core principles that we must never hesitate to act when necessary to defend our nation and we must also never rush into war because
sending you into harm's way should be a last and not first resort. it should be compelled by the needs of our security and not our politics. we need to remember that we must not give in to the false illusion of isolationism because in this dangerous time, oceans alone will not protect us and the world still seeks and needs our leadership as the one indispensable nation. our military has to be prepared for the full spectrum of threats, from 20th style aggression to 21st century cyber-style threats. when we go to war, we have to hold ourselves to high standards and do everything to prevent the
loss of innocent life because that's what we stand for. that's what we should stand for. we have to remember that as we meet the threats of our times, we cannot sacrifice our values or our way of life. the rule of law and openness and tolerance that defines us as americans. that is our greatest strength and makes us a beacon to the world. we cannot sacrifice the very freedoms that we're fighting for. finally in our democracy that continues strength of our all-volunteer force, rest on something else. a strong bond of respect and trust between those in uniform and the citizens that you protect and defend. at a time when too few americans truly understand the realities or sacrifices of military
service, at a time when many political leaders have not served. if some in the military begin to feel as though somehow they are apart from the larger society they serve, those bonds can frey. as every generation learns anew, freedom is not free. so while less than 1% of americans may be fighting our wars, 100% of americans can do their parts. at the very least, to support you and your families. everybody can do something. every business, every profession, every school, every community, every state to reach out and give back and to let you know that we care to help make the lives of our troops and your families just a little bit easier. everybody can do something. that's why michelle and jill
biden have mobilized more americans to honor and support you and your family through joining forces. that's why even after we leave the white house, we continue top look to help rally fellow citizens to be there for you like you've been there for us. so we can't say it enough and we can't show it enough. thank you for your patriotism. thank you for your professionalism. thank you for your character in representing the best of the american spirit. our nation endures. we live free under the red, white and blue because of patriots like you. it has been a privilege of a lifetime to serve with you. i have learned much from you. i'm a better man having worked
with you. i'm confident that the united states and our armed forces will remain the greatest force of freedom and security that the world has ever known. god bless you and god bless the families of the united states of america. >> the president giving love to the united states military from joint base myer in virginia. he says he loves marine one, air force one but no greater honor than serving of commander in chef of the united states military. he will do for for two more weeks. our apologies for the audio difficulty there. that was annoying. so whoever the pool was. coming up, the fight over obama
>> now we know the democratic rally cry to save obama care. the senate minority leader, chuck schumer, says the republicans plan to repeal and aplace the affordable care act would make america sick again. >> what they would do would throw the entire insurance marketplace into chaos, playing repeals. it would increase costs for americans at all income levels. it would blow a trillion dollar hole in the deficit. >> and make america sick again. they're saying it and expect to hear it a lot. president obama meeting with democratic lawmakers to save that vital part of his legacy. this as mike pence said on the hill today, the first move in
power is to get rid of the affordable care act. >> obama care has worked a hardship on american families, on american businesses and in a very simply conclusion, the american people have sent new leadership here because obama care has failed. >> but speaker of the house paul ryan says they plan to make the transition smooth so they won't pull the rug out from people. let's bring in john bussey. there's not one plan. there's the group on the right that doesn't want to help -- there's no money for that, there's money for that and then the group like donald trump that say we need to keep the 26 and younger -- >> we can keep it on your parents. >> and we need previous conditions, we need those to be covered. but you can't have both. there's no plan -- the republicans don't have a plan for that. >> what republicans are looking at, 20 million people on the program, 20 million voters. so i think there's understanding
that there's disagreements between republicans and democrats but also in the republican party. how fast do you pursue is sayih so what gets kept, what gets abandoned. for those things that get abandoned or changed what takes their place. that's the issue. >> the promise is repeal and replace. it won't happen just like that. >> yeah. and there's a lot of ideas out there. the republicans are considering a variety of possibilities like tax credits. if your employer doesn't give you health insurance, maybe the federal government doesn't sponsor you through the affordable care act but gives you money to mitigate the cross is. that sufficient for the left. and rethinking medication. it was used to expand people on the affordable care act. instead, do you make it block
grants to the state. let them handle it. but is there enough medicaid money coming down. are the grants big enough. you're -- the health saving funds that people have, maybe expand them out such you can put pretax dollars into a fund and use that for your healthcare and have pretax money. this is what is being thought about. how do you address the fact that some people have pre-existing conditions and will be knocked off healthcare and some of the provisions under the affordable care act are popular. >> they voted more than 50 times to kill this law, but they never had a plan to replace it. >> that's right. now you have a republican president, republican senate, republican house. you can do it theoretically. you're seeing divisions within the republican party over this. what parts get kept, how fast do you move, what is the political fallout for the party. >> i heard democrats say last
night and this morning on television, it's like the dog that caught the bus. once you catch the bus, what do you do with it. >> some of these ideas have been tried before. special pools for funding that some haven't worked. >> yeah. we'll be right back. tech: at safelite, we know how busy your life can be. mom: oh no... tech: this mom didn't have time to worry about a cracked windshield. so she scheduled at safelite.com and with safelite's exclusive "on my way text" she knew exactly when i'd be there, so she didn't miss a single shot. i replaced her windshield giving her more time for what matters most. tech: how'd ya do? player: we won! tech: nice! that's another safelite advantage. mom: thank you so much! (team sing) safelite repair, safelite replace.
>> we have world that charles manson is out of prison and in the hospital. tmz reports that emergency medical technicians rushed manson to an emergency room. apparently some stomach issues. he's reportedly at a hospital an hour's drive from a prison where he's serving nine life sentences. the year was 1971 that a court convicted manson for his gruesome murders. he did not commit any murders
himself but orders his followers to commit the murders. trace gallagher has more. >> because of medical privacy laws, it's prohibited for releasing information about his condition. the 82-year-old manson is seriously asked. a hospital worker was asked and he said we have no information on a person by that name. and that reportedly is because manson was brought in by the name of joe doe. manson's son reportedly was told that he was in the hospital for a heart condition. the man said he's manson's biological son but has offered no proof. others say he's a devoted manson followers. we should note that sharon tate's sister says she has no ill wishes and she will reserve
>> on this day in 1999, people first began trading the euro. its debut marked the first time in more than 1,000 years that europe had its own one currency system. countries had to meet certain economic standards before they could adopt the thing. the united kingdom, denmark and sweden chose to stick with their own currency. people in britian have voted to leave the european union altogether but they never used the dirty money. some 340 million people in 19
countries do after its first trade 18 years ago today. how is that working out? should news break out, we'll break in. "your world" with neil cavuto starts right now. >> the republican plan to cut healthcare wouldn't make america great again, it would make america sick again. >> make america sick again? is that what the republicans want to do? >> all that will do is make america sick again. >> will make america sick again. be. >> really? make america sick again? look, each side is entitled to their own views, but it's not entitled to their own set of facts. so excuse me for starting with a common sense up top, but on this matter, it would be sick for me to wait till the end. welcome, i'm neil cavuto. this is "your world." a very unusual world today in
