hi, i'm frank. i take movantik for oic, opioid-induced constipation.
3:32 am
had a bad back injury, my doctor prescribed opioids which helped with the chronic pain, but backed me up big-time. tried prunes, laxatives, still constipated... had to talk to my doctor. she said, "how long you been holding this in?" (laughs) that was my movantik moment. my doctor told me that movantik is specifically designed for oic and can help you go more often. don't take movantik if you have a bowel blockage or a history of them. movantik may cause serious side effects, including symptoms of opioid withdrawal, severe stomach pain and/or diarrhea, and tears in the stomach or intestine. tell your doctor about any side effects and about medicines you take. movantik may interact with them causing side effects. why hold it in? have your movantik moment. talk to your doctor about opioid-induced constipation. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.

>> i think that president trump is behind us because his people is certainly behind it and some of the leaks possibly come from that group, you know, some of the leak which is are very serious leaks because are bad in terms of national security, but i also understand that's politics and in terms of him being behind things, that's politics. and it will probably continue. abby: that was president trump on monday with "fox & friends" saying that former president obama has been -- and his team have been behind the protests and leaks we have seen come out in the recent weeks. now we have this this weekend, ed, boom. what do you make of all of this? >> there's two things going on simultaneously, one is the intelligence community at war with donald trump and his administration. i think that's pretty clear. i mean, he doesn't like them, he's called them nazis if you
3:34 am
recall. right. the american intelligence community went over to israel, told the israelis, don't cooperate with this new administration because they might leak stuff to the russians, remember that? >> sure. >> but at the same time we know that the nsa twice tried to get a pfizer court to get them permission to tap trump tower and then the conversations by americans were leaked to various press. >> which is was not supposed to happen. >> which was not supposed to happen. >> you have more information on those computers that may have been tapped into at trump tower? >> i don't. >> how many of them? >> i don't have -- >> i thought you said two computers? >> i don't know how many computers. two requests.
3:35 am
but what i'm saying is that the fbi is now looking into whether the nsa did something illegal and if so, you're going to not not only a war between the intelligence community and the administration but the with intelligence community with the fbi. >> you're saying there's an interagency tug of war, however you want to phrase it, because the fbi is saying nsa my have stepped its bounds? >> that's a very good question. according to my sources comey, the director of the fbi and trump have had, in fact, conversations about this. where trump is getting this, i believe is from directly from james comey. you've been tapped, this is probably not legal and that's what set off donald trump. abby: he called it the revenge
3:36 am
of losers going all the way bacg that there's anger that james comey as you're saying didn't come out with more information on everything that was going on. >> exactly. >> tell us about the revenge of losers and how that might be tied with what we are talking about today? >> the big thing and we discussed it right before we went on air is the iran deal, the iran deal is the capstone of the policy of the obama manage and now there's a real possibility that this trump administration would undo that and ben rhodes who was key to setting up this deal is now part of the resistance movement against trump. >> he was the first one on twitter saying you're wrong about the wiretapping. >> that is the shadow government that you talked about? >> this is the shadow government. rhodes is getting leaks in the intelligence community and
3:37 am
talking to the washington post and others. abby: interesting. >> you're saying that you believe that there's been conversations between james comey and the president or people between them -- >> no, directly. >> giving the president idea that this was not authorized by the fbi, it would have been the nsa going to the court. >> while comey was doing the investigation of hillary clinton's e-mails he was being blocked by the other -- by the other parts of the intelligence community. he went, for instance, to the nsa, and dia, he went to all intelligence agencies and they had been told by the white house, do not cop rate dosh -- cooperate. he believes that there's been this underground prohillary antitrump feeling throughout the
3:38 am
intelligence community and he's looking into it right now. abby: we saw the tweet from president trump calling president obama, former president potentially a sick guy for doing this. would president obama have known about this at the type, had the wiretapping taking place? >> he must have known about it. my guess that it was more likely that valerie jared and ben rhodes and obama -- the architects of this and obama was informed. obama is not exactly the most engaged guy when it comes to these kind of details. he spends an awful lot of time watching espn and reading his books. >> curious that the statements from the obama camp did not deny it, just that he did not order it.
3:39 am
that left the door open. >> i think it was ordered by valerie jared. i don't know that for a fact. but knowing how the administration worked while obama was in the white house, she was really pulling the levers and ben rhodes was the guy who was between the press and these leaks. abby: very interesting. >> thanks for being here. abby: to other headlines this morning, illegal immigrant is on the run after assaults a border patrol agent, border officials say that the man escaped from a hospital in arizona where he was taken after entering the u.s. illegally and then assaulting an agent. the 37-year-old has a criminal history with drug offenses and has previously been deported from the u.s. and a reporter is attacked by a man in a ski mask all on live tv. >> while the buff throi and bars are open late at night --

rather such compassion and sympathy about the blue-collar everyday american worker like they did about these illegal criminal aliens that are getting deported back to their home country. there were so many absurdities in this article, it was hard to wrap my mind around what the narrative has been versus how they went to spend this for the illegal aliens. that may just read you a graph in the article appeared more returnees back to mexico means lower wages for everybody in blue-collar industries such as construction and automotive manufacturing or competition to jobs likely to increase. how ironic just in president's joint address to congress. the same paper, the "washington post" fact check it on comments about immigration and how it's hurting the average american worker. the economists say that's not true. somehow for mexicans in mexico

that is true. train to one flight a week am a 135 men on the fly. that's less than 10,000 people a year compared to the 12 million illegals. if anything, if you are supportive committee will want do even more. >> this is a nonstory. it also says president barack obama had two flights a week another president trumpets only increasing to one flight. if anything, barack obama was a racist enough so to porter in chief. clayton: the story notes a lot of mexicans are frustrated that those deported don't speak spanish, but english instead. you pointed out, if you ask folks from mexico to speak english. a lot of double standards. abby: kelley, thank you for bringing the same. coming up, at least in this controversial billboard this is real men provide real women

it has even an element of truth. you've got a guy who's a one of the fiction writer who found his ideal role as the script writer for a bonus delusional foreign policy fantasy. this guy should have never gotten anywhere near our national security and it's a disgrace that he and obama use their mind about to turn most of the world into wreckage. abby: what you anticipate his role now today post-presidency? what is then rose going to try to do? >> is obviously part of the resistance. he's one of the people helping organize the other side, obama loyalists and people part of the antitrust movement and abby: abstract president for running his agenda. it's obvious his role right here is trying to pretend the president didn't order a wiretap. does anybody on earth with an bathroom temperature i.q. say he didn't know it and approve it? of course he did. rose is trying to stop transfer

>> reaction pouring many in to president trump's bombshell allegations against the man who preceded him. >> what he was able to do yesterday was turn this narrative around to pretty much put the obama administration, the former administration on the defense. >> now you have corey lewandowski doubling, tripling down saying maybe there's a wiretap of a u.s. senator. >> they did spend time listening to conversation between then senator jeff sessions and the ambassador to russia. what other conversations did they listen in on. >> the former president saying they never listened in on any u.s. citizen. >> using investigative tools to go after a political opponent. that's a very scary business. >> supporters of president trump holding rallies across the country and today's event are called march for trump. >> this is about america first and i support this president and all the things he's doing and that's why i'm here today. >> trump protests. their goal was to shut down any
5:01 am
support for president trump. in berkeley, california, the protesters went up to the group which started arguing and shoving and fists flying. >> it's a great country, and i think a lot of people don't look at that. we are so blessed in so many ways by what we have and i think trump is there to help us get even better again. ♪ [italian music] >> ah, yes, i win another competition. abby: you won that, ed. ed: yeah. look pe video. clayton: those kids were so much better than us. abby: it shows us that hard work pays off, if you really put your focus on something and you love doing it you can be good at it. clayton: he's like i'm bringing my kids to work, play with dough dough. turns out they're awesome now. ed: 17 million people see their video. i told him we ought to get him to washington instead of jersey city, because he's talking about pizza, getting people together.
5:02 am
we got to bring them to washington right now because of a whole lot of fighting. abby: our top story this morning new questions from president trump about the democratic party 24 hours after accusing the obama administration of spying on him during the came. >> kristen, an update. good morning. >> my head is still spinning from all the allegations and accusations that came out yesterday, but already president trump is on to more tweets that lead to even more questions. he had one tweet about russian president vladimir putin. he was also tweeting about the hacks over the summer into the dnc. here's that tweet, quote, "is it true that the dnc would not allow the fbi access to check server our other equipment after learning that it was hacked? can that be possible?" so is president trump advancing the narrative on to another topic as his supporters say, or is he being the deflector-in- deflector-in-chief which is what nancy pelosi called him
5:03 am
yesterday, by trying to shift the focus away from his attorney jeff sessions? but president trump's former campaign manager corey lewandowski said last night that the second story and the wiretap story are essentially the same thing. he then accused the former administration of possibly wiretapping sessions' senate office to listen to his conversation with the russian ambassador. listen to this. >> this previous administration has said that they were aware of the conversation on two different occasions where then- then-senator jeff sessions met with the ambassador one time during the republican national convention, but more importantly the second time that he met with was in the united states senate office in a federal building, and they were monitoring what a united states senator was having a private conversation with, is what i understand, and if that is the case, that's very concerning. >> now, last night lewandowski offered no hard proof, and so far, neither his president trump to back up his bombshell all of
5:04 am
claim yesterday. that former president barack obama had ordered the wiretapping of phones inside trump tower during the election. but remember, a president is often privy to a lot more information than you or i would typically have, and in fact the new york times is reporting that senior white house officials -- excuse me -- a senior white house official have said that don mcgann, who is the president president's chief counsel, was working to secure access to what mcgann believed to be an order issued by the foreign intelligence surveillance court offering some kind of surveillance to president trump. this is the fisa court, the highly secretive court. so far, radio silence from the white house communications staff though a deputy press secretary is expected to be on another sunday show this morning. so hopefully we'll get some answers later today. abby: chris, kristen, you've been working all hours of the day. nice work. >> david bossie is the former
5:05 am
deputy director of the trump transition team. you've been involved with the trump campaign and transitions, and from the inside. what do you make of the last 24 hours starting with the president's tweets, the reaction to it in the media, and your take on where this goes from here? >> well, i think the president's pushing back because the democrats in this permanent campaign of obstruction. they can't get over the election defeat in november. this is just a continuation of their permanent campaign against president trump to delegitimize him and to really affect how he operates in a day-to-day basis. so, look, when president obama was there, it was fine for president obama to walked back putin, for him to tell him our relationship's going to be different, it was fine for the clinton foundation to try to recruit investors into what was called the russian-silicon valley project. it's fine for us when it's democrats to want to work with russia and to build our relationship. with president trump, they're using the russian relationship
5:06 am
in a very dangerous way for political purposes. i find that to be quite honestly revolting. i think the democrat party needs to be held responsible for what they're doing. we know there were things going on with the russians, but this is a bridge too far. abby: david, you were an investigator for congress during whitewater. i want to get your thoughts on former president obama's statement to this yesterday. i'll read this to you. he says "the cardinal rule of the obama administration was that no white house official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the department of justice. has part of that practice neither president obama nor any white house official ever ordered surveillance on any u.s. citizen. any suggest otherwise is simple false." what do you make of that? >> well, when you parse the words, president obama, you know he says "ordered." of course the word "order" -- of course he wouldn't have done that, he couldn't have done that that. thephizes acourt would do it. that would not be the same thing thing.
5:07 am
and president obama and his team who use those tactics uses it to try to deflect from them. i'll tell you, i think that president trump needs to pull together a tremendous team of investigators lawyers, and communicators to put together exactly what happened in a very expeditious manner and disgorge it to the american people so that it is not the drip, drip, drip of what we did to president clinton, meaning what president clinton allowed to have happen. it ate up his presidency because if we continue to uncover, as i served as chief investigator for -- from the senate whitewater committee all the way through the campaign finance and chinese espionage cases, all the way up through impeachment of president clinton, and it was the drip, drip, drip that really did the damage to president clinton. and i think that we just need to disgorge all the information, disgorge it all very quickly. this is all about the investigation of paul manafort.
5:08 am
it starts and ends really there. clayton: but, david, when you make that very point that this administration has to learn from previous ones and move on from all of this, once the president, as you know, it basically put gasoline on the fire yesterday. what are you hearing from people inside the administration now? are they going to present evidence to back up his rather dramatic claims, and then try to move back to their agenda, or what is the strategy moving forward? >> ed, that's a great point. and i think what the president needs to do is really look at gain be the american people's confidence by putting forward a team and announcing that we're going to disgorge all information, gather and put out for the american people. because there's nothing to see here. i know it; i was the deputy campaign manager. i never saw any of this. this is a ridiculous red herring by the left -- ed: so how do you do that, david david? i don't mean to interrupt, but, you know, the white house communications team has had weeks now to do that. how do they finally get ahead of this?
5:09 am
>> well, look, i mean these folks in the communications shop are friends of mine. they are highly competent, very good people. but i think the president giving himself a c+ on his communications is right, and i think that he needs to get better, and i think his team needs to get better, and i think they're learning that, but i will say this: they need to get this announcement out. i think they should take very aggressive posture over the next couple days and transition back to the issues that got him elected, back to immigration, back to tax reform, back to repeal and replace obamacare. if they do that this week, put together a couple of days, one good day after the other, i think they're back on track. track.. clayton: david, some people are saying that the reason for the saturday morning tweets about the wiretapping at trump tower was reaction to what happened on friday night using the word "ballistic" that the president was frustrated by the fact that senator sessions recused himself in the way that he did and other aspects. take a listen to what another news network said about that. i want to get your reaction. >> moments before his departure
5:10 am
for florida, president trump summoned his top aides to an oval office meeting, where senior white house sources tell abc news the president went ballistic, erupting at them in anger. sources tell abc news trump's anger had been brewing since thursday, when attorney general jeff sessions caught him by surprise by recusing himself from any investigations into russia's meddling in the 2016 campaign. clayton: so, david, "ballistic," and the banner says "west wing chaos." you talk to people at the white house. what are you hearing? >> well, look, you know, these people are trying their very hardest, but they need to do a better job for the president. the president has them there to protect him and the interests that got us elected in november. so i would just say -- and they mean well, and they're trying very hard. they need to bring in people who can and will do this job solely and not have a hundred other
5:11 am
things on their plates. that's a big part of this, they need to be singularly focused on putting this behind them so that they can get back to repealing and replacing obamacare and tax reform. abby: it is understandable that there's some frustration there because he feels that he lost one of his main players when it comes to this investigation. ed: i want to get on this point here, i don't mean to interrupt, you can jump in here. i've known you a long time. i'm reading what you're saying that people in the white house are not serving this president well -- i'm not trying to put words in your mouth. i want to be clear. it seems to be that they need to make changes. i'm hearing that from you. >> that's the president's call on changes. that's not what i'm saying. i'm saying these people are over overworked, they're working incredibly hard. but the problem is is there's not enough of them so they need to have some support brought in. that's what i believe the next step is. but i also believe that general sessions, you know, for the attorney general, you know, i
5:12 am
was caught off guard as well because i saw from janet reno in the nineties who threw her body in the doorway of every investigation for the clintons, they had the famous fights with louis freeh, the f.b.i. director director. you see holder and lynch in really these corrupt activities that were going on when they served in that position. and for the attorney general to feel that he had to recuse himself i think was a -- just too quick of a decision on that. i don't think it was necessary. i think the attorney general could have been fair, but he served in the campaign, and i think he was getting advice to the contrary. ed: david, final point. jed j. christian adams, former white house official, that the idea of sessions recusing himself now leaves career bureaucrats in charge of this investigation because there's no deputy attorney general who's been confirmed. chuck schumer is blocking a lot of the nominations out there. so and basically he said last hour that the swamp won, and that's why the president is
5:13 am
frustrated. what do you think about that? >> i think that's a very good point. chuck schumer now has a lot of power, if he continues to obstruct, whether it's the cabinet members or the sub subcabinet, these deputy spots across the government, he can slow down president trump's agenda. president trump, in my book, i think that reince priebus and the rest of the senior staff at the white house really has to make some tough decisions to clean out what's going on at justice and at the other departments, from a bureaucracy standpoint. abby: david bossie, great to have you here. really appreciate that. ed: the mainstream media says there's no evidence to support the president's wiretapping claims. but president obama's own former speechwriter says not so fast. chris wallace here to react, next. clayton: and we know how vicente fox feels about trump's big, beautiful border wall. >> i am not going to pay for this [bleep] wall.

5:18 am
some are pointing to where's the evidence, is there evidence, and some say that tweet right there says there is a lot of hedging from former obama administration employees which makes it look like something happened, something was ordered, something was conducted at trump tower. >> well, that's possible. it could also be that jon favreau, who is a very clever guy and has a sense of humor, might just be trolling the trump people and saying, "well, maybe it did happen." i wouldn't read too much into jon favreau and what he said there. look, the president made an explosive charge. he says that former president obama wiretapped him and compares it to nixon and watergate, mccarthyism, and the white house has so far failed to come up with any evidence for that charge so really the obligation is on them to prove it happened, not on the obama white house to prove it didn't happen. abby: chris, why do you think that is? because he made this huge statement, as you said, on twitter yesterday morning during our show and leaving us all to
5:19 am
try to find out what's going on here. we have not heard from the white house, as you said, since his tweet yesterday morning. you understand the inner workings of the west wing and how they might be able to maneuver something like this. what do you think is going on and why do you think we haven't heard yet? >> well, you've got to figure, i mean, they knew we're all going to be talking about it today, that if they had hard evidence, that they would have put it out. that just seems to be logical. i mean, there are a couple of issues here. one is that if there was that kind of a wiretap, it actually would be classified, and it would be, if not illegal because the president can declassify, highly unusual for him even if it was a wiretap of him to release information about a classified wiretap. i mean, it would be part of an investigation and in a sense by revealing it, he would be interfering with that investigation. there is another possibility that we all have to consider, and that is that the president has no evidence, that he just went off on this, that he had heard about it from various
5:20 am
sources and went off on it, and we do know that he was very upset about the fact that he'd had a very good week, he had had a successful speech, he was pushing his agenda and that all of that then got waylaid by the information, the disclosure of jeff sessions and the fact that he hadn't told the judiciary committee about his relationship relationship. so the possibility that he just -- it was a fit of temper is out there. ed: who do you have on today -- >> we're going to be talking to the senate intelligence committee, going to be talking to tom cotton and ask him what evidence he's season, and also talk to chris coons who interestingly enough talks about f.b.i. transcripts. we'll ask him about that. ed: chris wallace, no one better to break all of this down with insights. abby: we look forward to it, chris. thanks. >> thanks, guys. clayton: it was supposed to be a peaceful show of support for president trump, but instead they came under attack by violent protesters and a mob. when will this stop? we're live in washington. abby: tech stocks are booming

5:36 am
little on this? >> no, i don't think so at all. i mean, obviously a lot of people in political life meet with ambassadors. the question is, do the ambassadors try to influence a campaign, how many meetings are going on, the fact that flynn has resigned, sessions has recused himself, and we still don't know about trump's business ties to russia, speak volumes i think about what's going on here. and the fact that everybody lied about it, quite frankly, like if you're having these meetings, fine. just say you're having the meetings. don't lie about it 'cause when you lie, that shows that maybe you are hiding something. clayton: are you saying that you believe the attorney general lied? >> i personally believe that he did. he misled the senate, he misled the country. he knew he had meetings with the russian ambassador. this is all after the flynn deal too, let's remember. so you put in the context, flynn just was blown up, and then he's going to completely forget that he had two meetings with the
5:37 am
russian ambassador. ed: of course, as you said everyone or many people in washington on both i'd say of the aisle meet regularly with ambassadors especially folks who would be in the future in national security positions. do you not find it curious, though, that all of this information maybe from fisa courts, from elsewhere, finds its way into the pages of the washington post and then outrage comes reflexively from democrats calling for resignations, do you feel like this is helpful for a country to immediately impugn, potentially in a criminal way if these leaks are done incorrectly do you see a sense that it really undermines the ability to get anything done at all? >> well, the problem is that, as i said, people are lying about these meetings. if you just come clean -- ed: no, but nancy pelosi said she didn't meet with the russian ambassador and the picture came out two hours hour. >> yeah, but the russians didn't influence an election in the direction of the democrats. ed: well, there's no proof of that. >> now, whether or not it was enough to turn it, we don't know that question. but clearly they hacked the dnc,
5:38 am
leaked the information, tried to influence it, and then you have all these meetings that are happening with trump campaign people with the russian ambassador and russians, and then lying about it. meanwhile, they're putting in place in the republican party platform that we're going to be soft on russia in the ukraine. so as an american, as someone who sits on the defense appropriations committee, i want to know what's going on here. clayton: but what peruse do you have that ultimately -- all of these articles with headlines about russian collusion, where has there yet to have been any proof at all that trump advisors or trump campaign folks were colluding with russians? there's none. >> that's what -- that is what we're trying to find out. we do know that the russians influenced the election. we do know that they hacked the dnc. the investigation needs to happen as to whether there were connections. but then when people on the campaign are not being forthright with the meetings that they're having with frustrations, all of a sudden it sparks this whole controversy. and what trump did yesterday was explosive, as chris wallace said
5:39 am
said. if you go -- you have to have something initiated by the fbi, it then has to be certified by the attorney general to go to the fisa court, the foreign intelligence court, then the intelligence court has to find probable cause. the fisa court is appointed by the supreme court justice, which is a george w. bush appointee, and they have to find probable cause. ed: but, congressman, is there anything -- >> -- it had to go there. ed: is there anything from the president's big speech to the country that you as a democrat can work with him on? >> i wish if the president was really trying to change the news cycle he would do it by bringing a trillion-dollar transportation infrastructure broadband bill to the congress. that would certainly change the narrative. instead of doing these tweets and making up stuff, change the story and the country by bringing us a trillion-dollar infrastructure bill. abby: are you saying that democrats aren't part of this media cycle and what we're focused on? because they paid a ton of attention to russia and these investigations. you wonder, what do the american
5:40 am
people want to hear? what do they care about most? and you said a lot about the democrats in this last election cycle losing races across the board, they've got to get back to what the american people care about. >> yeah. abby: how do you say that and then you see the democrats today focusing so much on something like this? >> well, i say to the president, bring us a trillion-dollar infrastructure bill so we can rebuild the country, drive up wages, put people back to work and lay broadband fiber all over the country as they can be ready for the next generation of jobs. that would shift the story right now. and democrats like me and areas like mine are waiting for the president to do what he said he was going to do during the campaign. he was going to open up the steele mills, he was going to re reopen up the coal mines westbound a trillion-dollar transportation bill. bring it, and let's get to work on getting the american people back to work. and he can do this. he can do this. he's the president. he can change the story and let's get to work. ed: congressman ryan from ohio says to the president, bring it.

5:47 am
effort to repeal and replace obamacare? >> well, if you go back to the election last year, what did people care about? they really wanted to get our economy going again and they also wanted to make sure that the disaster of obamacare is repealed. we've got to replace it with something that actually works, which drives down costs. you know, my background is, i grew up in public housing. i know -- we didn't have health care. i ran the largest hospital company. i know we've the booth fix this program. president trump inherited a terrible mess. ed: he certainly did, and rand paul, senator from kentucky, has been the last several days trying to find -- he's made a show of it, and we've got video of it -- looking around trying to get into basically a secret room in the capitol where he says the house republican bill to repeal and replace obamacare is being drafted. are you frustrated that that bill has not been made possible, that there's not more transparency in this process right now? >> well, i've met with president trump, secretary price, members
5:48 am
of the house and the senate, and i think we all want to make sure the right thing happens here so i think the more we get out there and let people know what the conversation is about, you'll get feedback from individuals like mine. one of the big issues i've got is we are not a state that expanded medicaid because we know it was not sustainable. it's a disaster. i want to make sure florida does not get treated worse than a state that took medicaid expansion because it's not fair to our taxpayers. ed: there's a big issue that's developing, and in washington there's always talk among democrats and republicans, let's do big things, let's have one big repeal and replace big and one big replace bill. you have an idea to break this up into pizzas. >> i think it's very difficult. the grand bargains don't seem to work out very well in health care. so i would focus on how do you drive down costs? the biggest issue we have is costs are too high. how do you do that? more competition, let people buy the insurance they want to buy. you know your body better than anybody else. your family knows what their needs are. reward people for taking care of themselves.

>> hey, abby, big news for the very first time since president trump tweeted and made accusations against former president barack obama that he had alleged wiretapped trump tower during elections. we are finally getting response from the white house. it is from white house press secretary sean spicer. he posted it on twitter about ten minutes ago. a series of four tweets. the first one is reports concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of 2016 election are very troubling. president trump is requiring that part of investigation in russian activity the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authorities to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016. neither the white house nor the president will comment further until such oversight is conducted. so this is coming out just
6:03 am
minutes before the white house principal deputy press secretary sarah is expected to be speaking on another sunday show and given that statement that the white house nor the president will comment further until this investigation is conducted, we likely won't be getting any more information from her or the white house today. and so president trump's critics are going to come out. you make a claim like this that your predecessor broke the law by wiretapping, if you put out a claim that big, that bold, you will need to offer hard proof and hard evidence to back it up, but the white house is going to standby its claim, it appears, that these allegations took place and that they took place right before the election. so this is now the white house really handing the ball over to these congressional intelligence committees and we will see what
6:04 am
they say, but this is our first official response from the white house and it comes a little over 24 hours after the very first tweet. >> thank you, kristin. the plot thickness. it continues to thickness. >> if you want to stay on top of the news just watch "fox & friends". abby: we are calling for an investigation into the executive government. what they're trying to say, ed, it seems we want to get to the bottom on what president obama knew and how involved was he on this. >> the white house is basically saying this investigation of russian hacking should not just be about what did trump campaign advisers know and what did they say and what contact did they have, it should also include potential executive branch abuse of power by the obama administration in 2016. @a -- it's a gambit here. they are gang lg that they can

6:06 am
following throughout the promises made in the campaign, you mentioned that tax reform, health care, immigration. the problem is what the media is focused and what they're talking about, much of a distraction from what the american people want to hear right now. >> they are battling the media every single day. we are going to have a member, different part of the media mark who is a famed radio talk show host, also a former chief of staff to an attorney general, i will clarify and constitutional lawyer. allot of -- a lot of people are crediting, but you wouldn't know if he's a constitutional lawyer if you listen to abc world news and the mainstream media, this is how they frame anyone who happens to challenge former president obama. >> it is not clear tonight whether he based allegations on
6:07 am
a top secret white house briefing or whether it came from reading an article on the conservative breitbart website posted friday that detailed speculation from a conspiracy talk show host. >> i listen to his program almost every single day. former attorney chief of staff, he knows what he's talking about. he doesn't throw stuff out. the media says talk show host, this is what you're up against. this is the left stream, they are not unbiased. totally in the tank. abby: exclusive interview. >> we are going to allow mark to lay out the case. abby: that'll be interesting. meanwhile former president obama gave statement yesterday after all of this broke on our show this morning. this is what he wrote, a cardinal rule of obama administration was no white house official ever interfered with any independent

investigation led by the department of justice as part of that practice neither president obama nor any white house official ever ordered surveillance on any u.s. citizen. any suggestion otherwise is simply false. >> right, they picked up on one point and they sort of parsed it and said, president obama did not order it, that statement did not say it did not happen. someone else ordered it apparently and reminded me of the story of 2015n. the wall street journal exploded out, december 29th, 2015, about israel being spied on and members of congress -- spied on by the obama administration, members of congress getting drag. behind the scenes, the white house decided to keep certain allies under close watch topping the list israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu, white house believed the white house intercepted information could be valuable to

thoughts, he would be shocked if former president obama didn't know about this. that is in a level that is so high, likely -- marijuana he wasn't behind it but he certainly would have known that something was going on. >> another key part of the trump white house statement a couple of moments ago breaking this hour is the last line which was while this is being investigated, the white house will have no further comment. that's what the white house communication team is saying. will president trump follow through on that? are they now saying, hey, let's knock this off. >> it's going to be pretty hard not to comment. we will see how it unfolds. the story moves forward. abby: i have a feeling that he's willing to comment. happening tight, let's just let this play out. >> senior adviser was telling us last hour that this is something that's eating at them. remember what president trump said right here on "fox &

6:16 am
as we talked about, he had a good week in the speech and moving forward on some of his other policy priorities and we have sent the last 24 hours dissecting bizarre tweets from the president that have no basis in fact. >> that's your view to that's what he tweeted was bizarre. a cardinal rule of the obama administration was that no white house official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the department of justice, as part of that practice neither president obama nor any white house official ever ordered surveillance on u.s. citizen. any suggestion otherwise is simply false. they're saying the president didn't order that however you
6:17 am
know that means that somebody else ordered of the surveillance donald to donald trump. >> they were right to respond to that. there are two way that is american citizens can get caught up in wiretaps that are involved in national security investigations, one if they get caught talking to foreign official being surveilled. talking to the russians. the other is if law enforcement, the fbi or other law enforcement agencies go to a court called the feifa court and get a warrant to tap the individual, that's a process that the obama administration was making very clear in the statement yesterday was not -- would not have been directed by president obama or the white house. >> not directed by the white house but they were essentially confirming that there was surveillance. >> i don't think i would read the statement that way. we need to be careful before we get out in front of the facts.
6:18 am
john, colleagues in the obama administration said the contrary. he said they were not saying surveillance didn't happen. >> well, i wouldn't assume that they were saying it did, though. >> are we playing words games here, what happened? >> we are. what this underscores is we need a broad independent investigation to see all of the facts about what happened in the 2016 election, the russian meddling, who knew what, who was talking to who and, sure, look, i'm happy for them to take a look at how the obama administration respond today this. every day that president trump draws attention to this story of russian meddling and their contacts with russia, he's taking away from tax reform, from health care from all of the other things he wants to focus on and that's not a good day for him in the administration. that's not what i said. >> i heard you. >> i'm saying that i'm happy for anyone to look at the record
6:19 am
that we had in the obama administration. i wasn't directly involved in this issue, of course, i was the state department doing diplomatic things. >> you have done the dances before. >> i have. >> here, i've got something that's direct. we have this on tape. 2012, you remember it well, president obama not president trump told then president of russia, i get reelected, tell vladimiri will have more reflection to do what, to do deals. >> i remember the outcry. i would love to hear some soft the outcry from the same republicans when he compares us to russia in human rights and he refuses to criticize russia on anything that it's doing when he's much cozzier to russia than we were in the obama mechanics. we need consistency here. every day that we are

6:26 am
secretly designated me a criminal coconspirator and a flight risk and thereby had a federal judge give the government permission to rifle through all my gmails, that could read emails and also to get the phone records associated with about 20 phones that i used at the time in my reporting. all of the phone numbers were 202 or 703, area codes associated with washington, pentagon, virginia area, one was 708 and that was my parent's house at staton island at the time. the obama administration has launched an investigation to determine my sourcing for a series of reports i did about north korea's nuclear weapon's program. that's how i learned about it along with the rest of the world.
6:27 am
president obama in a speech at national defense on counterterrorism pronounced himself troubled by the idea that a working journalist would be criminalized for doing his job and the person responsible for him, iric holder, the attorney general should get to the bottom of what happened and provide some reforms at the department of justice which were, in turn, enacted. the current president's tweets alleging that president obama was behind wiretapping him or trump tower, separate case. the reaction from the obama camp yesterday was president obama never ordered surveillance of any american citizen, thin line there which is he didn't personally ordered it but clear any in your case someone in his administration ordered surveillance of you, a u.s. citizen, period. >> that's right. the surveillance extend today --
6:28 am
extended to monitoring badge when i was leaving the building, where i was using telephones and so forth and that was attributed to eric holder and by all xts, -- accounts this was illegal and unprecedented. so that was an honor that i had all onto myself. [laughter] >> in the case of what we are hearing now from president trump, there's just a lot we don't know. we have to caution our viewers that we hope to learn more about it. if it's true that the obama administration went to the feiza court to get surveillance, computer tower, whether it was of the president's telephone as he seems to believe wiretapping, we would like to know what basis of probable cause would have
6:29 am
been asserted in order to secure that permission for that surveillance. >> there's some dismissing it offhand that it will never happen. it's possible that something like president trump is alleging could have happened? >> it's entirely plausible. this is the nature of the age in which we live. the age of eric snowden. it remains unproved at this point. we have heard from sean spicer in a tweet storm of his own, it's the view of the white house any committees russian meddling in the election, should also be investigating the allegation about president obama wiretapping president trump. the white house -- neither the white house nor the president will comment further until such oversight is provided. that's probably the one thing shown spicer has ever said in his life that he's least sure will turn out to be true. that the president won't

6:34 am
>> wac back to "fox & friends", joining us now is the former chief of staff to attorney general edwin, a constitutional lawyer and radio talk show host, the great one mark levin from hidden bunker. thank you very much for joining us this morning. on your thursday evening radio broadcast you layed out a devastating of executive overreach of the obama administration which many believe to tweets that president trump sent out saturday morning of accusing potentially wiretapping in trump towerment we want to give you a case of what you know and the evidence you have of potential overreach of the obama administration. >> well, a pleasure to be here. the evidence is overwhelming. this is not about president trump's tweeting, this is about the obama administration spying
6:35 am
and the question is not whether they spied, we know they went to court twice, who they did spy and who did they spy, trump transition, trump surrogates, and i want to walk you through this, american people, exhibit 1, this is all public. head street, two separate sources with links to the counter intelligence community have confirmed that the fbi sought and was granted a foreign intelligence surveillance act court, this is spying. in october, counter intelligence permission to examine the activity of, quote, u.s. persons in donald trump's campaign with ties to russia. let me go on. second was drawn more narrowly and granted in october after evidence presented of a server possibly related to the trump campaign and its alleged links
6:36 am
to two banks. now, sources suggest that the warrant was looked to look at full content of emails and other related document that is made persons. how did they get access to the server information? does it matter if it was wiretapping, surveillance, whatever it was? right-wing newspaper, here it is. quote, the guardian has learned the fbi applied for a warrant from the foreign intelligence surveillance court in court in order to monitor four members of the trump team, keep in mind, this is during presidential election. the sitting president, the incumbent party is now investigating the presidential candidate of the republican party and his campaign to some extent. the court turned down the application asking fbi counterintelligence investigators no narrow its focus. according to one report, the fbi
6:37 am
was finally granted a warrant in october. exhibit 3, another well-known right-wing newspaper, here they have the agencies, headline, fbi, five other agencies, five other obama administration agencies possible covert kremlin aid to trump. the fbi and five law enforcement intelligent agencies have collaborated for months in an investigation in russian attempts to influence the november election including whether money from kremlin covertly president donald trump. the agencies involve in the inquiry are the fbi, cia, nsa, the justice department, the treasury department's enforcement network and representatives to have director of the national intelligence. are you telling me barack obama didn't know it was going on in six agencies? hold on, hold on. >> keep going. >> i'm not done. i need make the case because the
6:38 am
media seems to be confused about their own reporting. new york times, another well-known liberal outlet intercepted russian communication into trump, january 19, the fbi is leading the investigation, the investigators have accelerated efforts in recent weeks but have found no exclusive conclusive evidence of wrong doing. listen to this. one official says intelligence reports baited on sop of the wiretap communications had been provided to the white house. this is "the new york times" -- >> another right-wing outlet, yeah. >> let's continue. [laughter] >> new york times again, nsa gets more latitude to share intercepted communications in the final days of the obama administration the administration is expanded the power of the nsa to share globally intercepted personally communications with government
6:39 am
16 intelligent agencies before applying privacy, protections, why would they do this on the way out the door? well, march 1, exhibit 6, obama administration rush today preserve intelligence of russian election hacking. in the obama administration's last days, listen to this, some white house officials scrambled to spread information about russian efforts to undermine the presidential election and about possible contacts between associates of president trump and russians across the government. i'm not done. [laughter] >> exhibit 7. new york times, flynn said to have talked to russians about sanctions trump took office. where did they get this information? well, you know, the court is always monitoring the russian embassador and so, how do we know that? maybe they are and maybe they're not but there's an awful lot of activity. >> sure. >> washington post. one more, washington post march second.
6:40 am
u.s. investigators have examined attorney general sessions from the time he was advising donald trump's campaign. focus of u.s. counter intelligence has been on communication between trump campaign officials and russia, listen to this. the inquiry involving sessions examining his context while serving as advise ner the spring and summer of 2016. this has been going on for a year. >> as you do on your radio program you lay out case on documents, mainstream left stream sources, how confident are you that the investigation which was on russian hacking, the white house says this morning will be broaden to look into executive overreach, how will they find something here? >> i don't know. they already found something. the issue isn't whether the obama administration spied on the trump campaign or transition of surrogates, the issue is the extent of it.
6:41 am
they went to court a second time. they were so aggressive. they waited four or five months, they went back in october, weeks before general election, narrow request, we have leaks coming out on flynn and then we have a horrible meeting that took place between sessions and so forth and i'm telling you as a former chief of staff from attorney general in the united states, these are tactics. what did barack obama know, he knew everything he knew apart from one or two articles, how do i know? it's in the newspapers. barack obama not only knew this but he gets a daily intelligence briefing and let me tell you something about daily intelligence briefings, if you're attorney general and you're fbi going to the court, take out a warrant to investigate aspects of an opposition party in the middle of a general election campaign, how much you want to bet the president of the united states knew that? >> i don't want to bet you on that. we are about to hit a hard
6:42 am
break, is there any way you can stick around another minute? >> that's fine? >> more with mark levin smart tv and gaming system. luckily, the geico insurance agency recently helped baa baa with renters insurance. everything stolen was replaced. and the hooligan who lives down the lane was caught selling the stolen goods online. visit and see how easy it is to switch and save on renters insurance. across new york state, from long island to buffalo, from rochester to the hudson valley, from albany to utica, creative business incentives, infrastructure investment, university partnerships, and the lowest taxes in decades are creating a stronger economy and the right environment in new york state for business to thrive.

let us help grow your company's tomorrow - today at
6:44 am of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo is specifically designed to open up airways to improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo
6:45 am
could be a missing piece for you. learn more about better breathing at >> welcome back to "fox & friends", still joining us live former chief of staff to attorney general edwin, constitutional lawyer and radio talk show host mark levin. in the break response has been overwhelming to the case that you layed out which is devastating and abby and i were talking in the break of where it goes from here, right, abby? >> that is the question. you layed out your case, you're passionate about the evidence that you have and we have so many people writing us and saying, thank you for speaking your voice, my question is how does this play out in the media, how are they going to continue to cover the story? >> let me first say, this is the case made by "the new york times", the washington post, the rest of them. i just put it together as they former justice department official and donald trump here
6:46 am
is being attacked for what he tweeted. donald trump is the victim. his campaign is the victim. his transition team is the victim. his surrogates are the victim, these are police-state tactics, i'm telling you as a former chief of staff, if this has been done to barack obama all hell would break loose and it should. barack obama's statement is pathetic. where does it go from here? they should release applications where they sought the warrant, the one in the summer and the one in october so we know exactly what they were doing. that's number one, number two, congress needs to see the daily presidential intelligence briefings over the past year or so. those are the beginnings of a serious investigation. number three, for the republicans in congress you control the majority, if the democrats do not want to assist and they won't, because i'm starting to think chuck schumer and the others are participating in all of this cover-up activity, then plow ahead
6:47 am
without them. but this is important to the country. we cannot have a sitting presidential administration unleashing six federal agencies, intelligence and law enforcement, i don't mean the president sitting there, you know what, valley, let's go get them. obviously the attorney general and the fbi were involved in this. this is how you get a court application. prepare and submit it. >> do you think former president obama was involved in this and if so how much was he involved? >> i just think that we ought to find out. i will tell you this, he's more involved than hi says, it's his executive branch. i don't know anything about it. we have reporters including james rose in the ap where the obama administration did more investigation on reporters than any administration in american history. they are quite capable of these things.
6:48 am
it doesn't matter. we want to know what took place and there ought to be public hearings too. i agree with the democrats, let's get to the bottom of this, join me, join us, this is the public record. it's the newspaper of record, "the new york times", let's go. >> mark, there's another aspect of this, when you mentioned chuck schumer a moment ago, he's been trying to block nominees as he can and slow the process can, we had jay christian adams, former justice official which you probably know well and he was pointing out something very important here which is now that jeff sessions has rescued himself, the person in charge is a career bureaucrat. the swamp won because you have people inside justice, some maybe who have been trying to undermine president trump who are now in charge of the information and the chances of chuck schumer and the democrats in the senate, you know, confirming the nomination of the deputy attorney general, a trump loyalist now seems kneel.
6:49 am
>> they have -- do that. i'm recessing and appointing so and so as department attorney general of the united states. then attorney general sessions refused hymn from matters affecting the russian investigation and so forth, then the deputy attorney general who has recessed pointed, so christian is right, he served the justice in the civil rights decision, i'm right, i served as chief of staff, the administration need to be responsible. >> mark, you layed out a devastating case, we know why they call you the great one. thanks for joining "fox & friends" this morning. abby: we appreciate that. we are going to liven things up a little bit. this is going to be the active,
