battle cry is going to take all-american summer concert series brought to you by our friends at car keurig. brian: harris faulkner looking at what you are going to be having for lunch. hairs hairs that's hotter than i am, that's barbecue sauce. steve: harris faulkner you are outnumbered today. brian: i will tell you this, harris, it was not in the prompter. harris: i'm happy to be filling in for ainsley earhart today. this is my first time ever. brain brian you are built for this format. harris: i don't know what that means. brian: a chance to talk. we are not going from story to story to reporter to
3:03 am
reporter. we go from issue to issue. let's begin with the number one issue. this is something you were talking about on your show yesterday. steve: james comey yesterday at 10:00 in the morning went into that famous room 216 in the heart office building where essentially he started two and a half three hours worth of some have depicted it as james comey's revenge tour. what it was revealed was he said that donald trump appears liar. but then it was revealed that mr. comey himself is a big leaker in this exchange. listen. >> the president tweeted on friday, after i got fired, that i better hope there's not tapes. i woke up in the middle of the night on monday night because it didn't dawn on me originally that there might be corroboration for our conversation there might be a tape mile. judgment was i needed to get that out into the public square. so i asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter. i didn't do it for myself for a variety of reasons but i asked him to.
3:04 am
i thought that might prompt the appointment of a special council. i asked a close friend of mine to do it. >> was that mr. whiteus? >> no. >> who was that? >> a good friend of mine a professor at columbia law school. brian: that was pretty shocking. i was stunned. to me by the way i have explosive story that i'm going to say on same level. harris: important detail is the friend. if you are in trouble, this is the kind of friend you would call. this wasn't just any friend. chief appellate attorney for the u.s. attorney's office. he has actually been an expert witness testifying before congress and hearings numerous times. he is a consultant to the doj. not just a law professor, they worked together until 2013. he and comey say they have a past professional relationship. this is not just any friend. he would have connections to the media. he would know how to get out a message. this is not like hey i'm going to phone a friend and
3:05 am
you are going to help me win some money on a game show. this is the resul result manhattan. thiresultmanhattan. the chances that he feels comfortable going to the names to get his story across a lot of things makes sense. makes you want to go back over the last two years and see what else turned up in the "new york times." has anonymous sources to the investigation. now you find out for the first time through that, steve, there was one on one memos from his one-on-one interactions with the president of the united states. steve: as james comey tries to prevent himself as the last honest man in washington, d.c. kept a secret file which some have depicted as insurance policy so he could keep his job. there are instances yesterday where he depicted where he did something and we are going to talk about it a little while during the last administration essentially to keep his job.
3:06 am
sounds like he went along with some stuff he was uncomfortable with to keep his job in this administration. harris: there were a lot of moments during that hearing that popped that got heated. one stood out and that was with senator marco rubio. he pressed him. brian: smooth and measured. harris: measured. there was one thing that actually didn't leak. it was a pertinent piece of information about how president trump was actually not under investigation. somehow or another, comey managed to keep that quiet. brian: let's listen. >> the three requests were number one, be loyal. number two, let the michael flynn thing go and number three, can you please tell the measure people what these leaders in congress already know that i'm not -- personally under investigation. >> those are the three things he asked, yes, sir. >> this investigation is full of leaks left and right. you ever wonder boy of all the things in this investigation the only thing that's never been leaked is the fact that the president was not personally under investigation despite the fact that both democrats and republicans and the
3:07 am
leadership of congress knew thanks i don't know. i find marries leaked to the gang of eight are pretty tightly held in my experience. brian: that has nothing to do with it a couple of things, too. the earlier report earlier in the week that the president was going to have, the fact that he said three separate times james comey to him that he is not under investigation, that was going to be debunked yesterday. that didn't happen because he actually was told at least throw times by james comey that he was not under investigation it just seemed like a president to try to say, listen, i'm just trying to get a gem to pass. you can tell everyone i'm not a subject of this so can i start moving things through washington? harris: what was interesting was the texture of who james comey became as he talked yesterday. he wanted us, i believe, through his words and actions, believe he was the victim. i'm not captain courageous. i couldn't stand up to president trump. brain brian that's the only consistency thing he never stands up to everyone whether is he loretta lynch or the president. he thinks it and doesn't say
3:08 am
anything. harris: i kind of backed off on that moment. steve: just a little bit. he revealed he leaked this stuff through the guy at columbia university law professor in hopes that they would come up with a special counsel and a couple of weeks later they absolutely did. what's interesting on may 3rd mr. comey was up on capitol hill. he told charles grassley, the senator from iowa oh i have never leaked anything secret in my life. what's curious, brian, one of the online blogs went back and looked at the deep state leaks that have come that have damaged the trump administration. out of the 39 deep state locates, i think it was about 10 of them related to jim comey. so you have got to wonder whether or not jim comey was actually the source of it. we don't know for sure. only jim comey and the reporter knows for sure. after he revealed yesterday in public, you have got to wonder why we reveal that suddenly yesterday? is it the fact that it's
3:09 am
been b. to be unveiled? harris: i don't believe anybody in this scenario is doing anything coincidental. i know you just mentioned loretta lynch. i was reading but online, you actually forecast this is where we would be with james comey that maybe that information, that we have learned about those conversations inside the oval office might have been coming directly from him. brian: yeah. essentially we just read everything and seems so succinct and so detailed know noe way that's going to get in the "new york times" unless james comey okayed it and certainly he did through a professor at columbia. >> steve: brain did, james comey release that information to you? thanswer. yes or no. brian: special thanks to media for putting that in there. i just would like to add this. i do know new news to me at the time, when he come out and talked about loretta lynch and he said loretta lynch i had a little problem with her because i asked to get cleared to give my
3:10 am
testimony back in 2015 and about hillary clinton. he said yeah, i don't want you to call it an investigation. and he said really she says i want you to call it a matter. steve: in fact, we have got that exchange right here with senator james burr. >> at one point the attorney general had directed me not to call it an investigation but instead to call it a matter which confused me and concerned me. it gave the impression that the attorney general was looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way political campaign was describing the same activity, which was inaccurate. we had a criminal investigation open. harris: all right. so to get on a record a source familiar with loretta lynch wanted to respond to that discussion and did so this way. no one,including the director, contested that view. it didn't take long to say that. steve: that they called it a matter. if you remember back in the time there was a story, i think it was in the "new york times" where they referred to the fact that james comey was not the director of the federal bureau of investigation but the je'kel was he was the direct of the director of
3:11 am
federal bureau of matters. what's curious is when you think about it, and james comey may it very clear in earlier testimony the reason he went public with the hillary clinton email stuff was because he felt so uncomfortable about the bill clinton exchange out on the tarmac but then when you listen to the fact that, you know, loretta lynch went in and said you have got to call it matter, not investigation, isn't that tampering with an election? brian: i think so. steve: isn't that obstruction of justice some wondered? harris: weighing in for certain. brian brian i'm going to pretend i'm handy. you are drilling down, i'm going to switch that switch on the drill gun and pulling back. harris: turned into an episode of home depot. what happened? steve: brian the builder. brian: brian, please don't build. that's usually the constructioners asking me. harris: i'm following the story. brian: are you yesterdayy for this? harris: yeah britain brian has a problem with donald
3:12 am
trump in the office doesn't say a word. he has a problem with using the word matter. we are going to use the word matter not investigate. james comey didn't say a word. of the only thing consistent is that james comey doesn't say anything except he goes dear diary and writes it down afterwards. where is the courage? steve: why did he do that? insurance policy which he leaked after he got fired because he didn't say anything to loretta lynch because he wanted to keep his job. didn't say anything to donald trump because apparently it wasn't against the law and he wanted to keep his job. harris: he has a long history of handling things. brian: have you tossed to jillian. harris: i haven't. good morning. jillian: fox news alert right now. let's begin with this. theresa may's conservative party failing to secure a majority in the house of commons. u.k. now has a hung pearlment meaning no party has enough representation to maintain control. may is facing immense pressure to resign. sources say we will not step down and will instead form a

despite some false statements and lies, total and complete vindication and, wow, comey is a leaker. and that comes from comey. here to weigh in is texas congressman and member of the house freedom caucus louie gohmert. your reaction to the president's tweet? >> it was an appropriate tweet but i like the ace of spades tweet yesterday. he said comey, loretta lynch told me to lie and i didn't write that down. but i wrote down trump's stuff because i was afraid he might lie. i mean, the hypocrisy just knows no bounds. it's incredible. and for it to turn out that the guy that was head of the fbi while the obama administration prosecuted more leakers than all the other administrations put together and it turns out he was a leaker in chief. brian: right. >> it's pretty dramatic stuff
3:19 am
that the head of the fbi. it really does appear he has been after trump for a while now. brian: i will be very curious to see what other stories are linked to the fbi director after all he admitted he went right to -- used a surrogate to go right to the "new york times" and not telling anybody else that he took memos. congressman, a couple other things. you believed that republican leadership is letting the president down in what respect? >> well, we were supposed to be in session today and, you know, that helps change the message back to what we're doing. we passed a great bill yesterday that's going to save community banking and quit the bailout of the big banks, too big to fail. but tuesday, apparently, our leadership changed the week's scheduling and said let go dark on friday, which means the emphasis will not be on what we're doing good in

3:26 am
around the idea. how do you get that border barrier built and can't there be a generating of revenue from that border barrier? and one of the engineers said let's put solar on it. and he made brilliant design. steve: because, essentially by being a power generating station, the wall would off set the cost of the wall. >> it would defray the cost of the wall by 40 million to $400 million annually, depending on how much per mega watt hour the market was. >> we are looking at one of the designs right here. explain what we're looking at. >> we are looking at a beautiful rendition of the border barrier with the solar component as you can see. it's measure. it's steel measure. you can see through it. there is no graffiti that can be put on it and it has a solar gathering component that can generate a tremendous amount of mega watt hours her
3:27 am
we're. steve: to go up like that it would be hard to climb over. >> exactly. our engineers took a look at everything. they looked at the specifications, the security needs, and the solar gathering materials that would be required and they came one a great design. amazing design. steve: here is one of the other things aside from the fact that it would offset the cost of the wall is the fact that it would wind up, you would think because the political left loves things that are solar powered they would leave. this wait a minute, we love it but we hate it love it because it's solar powered but hate it because it's a wall. >> exactly. the best thing about it is we could sell the energy to mexico so in fact they would be paying for the wall. so it's a win, win, win. steve: okay. it's fascinating idea. has the president at all given any indication that he likes this idea? >> well, he hasn't said we particularly like sustainable technologies idea but he did have a meeting with republican leaders and talked about a solar gathering component on the wall.

3:29 am
where he has got all sorts of alliances between public entities and private entities. any possibility you could put a bunch of people together to finance this thing and then through the solar energy that it produces it would pay for itself and you wouldn't have to go to congress? >> well, that's our plan, steve, we believe this is a public-private partnership deal. basically what would happen is we would enter into a contract with a federal authority to sell them the energy. they would then sell the energy to a grid. and the revenue derived from it would go to pay for the bonds that we would have to finance the border barrier by. steve: fascinating stuff, bruce blakeman thank you for joining us. what do you think about that? email us at "fox & friends" friends@foxnews.com. texting walking. we will show you happens next other than the guy ends up in the basement. president never asked comey to

3:35 am
she wanted to make the case that it was all russia and jim comb y and this was their strategy from the very beginning. that they were going to push. it's still something that i hear her talking about right now. she is not looking inward to blame herself or what she did on the campaign. and i think a lot of democrats, particularly want to here about that. because they want to know how do we learn from this. steve: but it was made up. >> i don't know about made up, but it was definitely what they wanted to push. and it is something that, you know, you heard on calls the following day. there were a series of calls with donors, with surrogates. and that was something that they were pushing, particularly john podesta on these calls. brian: so it didn't surprise you, i imagine, judging by the research that you did and what you put in the book to see her out on the stump for the next three weeks no doubt i made mistakes but i lost you fill in the blanks. not because of deplorables but russia hacked the election.
3:36 am
>> she has continued to talk about that. a lot of the people want to hear what else went wrong. we talk about that in this book. there were problems with message and that they were data, and didn't have -- they didn'mix in the art with the science. that was something that bill clinton -- >> harris: i want to talk about that whole idea of facts and evidence and all of that i'm not going to ask you who you talked with you about i know you talked about just about everybody around hillary clinton. was there ever a thought that at some point we are going to have to show some evidence of collusion here. anybody got any of that? anybody? >> they have continued to make that point. but what they did is they failed to make that point during the campaign. they had an opportunity, particularly after one of the debates when they focused on alicia that chad dough instead of making the case that 17 intelligence agencies had talked about collusion. that was a problem. there were missed opportunities there.
3:37 am
steve: it's seven months later and mr. comey said yesterday on his last day with the fbi there was no evidence that there was collusion between the russians and trump. >> he does make this point and he says let's, you know, it was definitely out there. i think he uses the word buzz and says i don't want to leave. brian: john podesta emails reveal the inner workings of the campaign certainly hurt. now let's talk about the revolutions of 20150 and attorney general loretta lynch who evidently meets on the tarmac by some happenstance meets with a reporter by bill clinton. we find out yesterday or reaffirmed yesterday that james comey said i was told bylor let that lynch along with a whole group of people don't call it an investigation. watch. >> we were getting to a place where the attorney general and i were both going to have to testify and talk publicly about it i wanted to know was she going to authorize us to confirm we had an investigation she said yes, buy don't call it that. call it a matter. i said why would i do that?
3:38 am
and she said just call it a matter. it gave the impression that the attorney general was looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way political campaign was describing the same activity which was inaccurate. brian: rambling behind the scenes, how significant. >> pretty significant. massive revelation. i think it gout battered from the broader trump news yesterday. it's quite a story. consternation inside the campaign particularly after that lynch-clinton moment on the tarmac. even at the white house, obama aides were scratching their heads saying we are senatorrer than. this. brian: what were you thinking? >> it was a bad moment for the campaign. >> harris: what was interesting. even supporters of the campaign said that might have been a tipping point. one of the biggest moments when bill clinton and loretta lynch were on that plane on the tarmac. >> we still talk about that. on the book tour that's one of the biggest questions why didn't they see that was a problem?
3:39 am
steve: yesterday mr. comey made it clear he felt pressured by donald trump to do what he did. whereas when you look at that exchange between loretta lynch and james comey it looks like he felt pressure from her. it looks like she was trying to influence the campaign. >> the one thing a lot of people i talked to yesterday were saying you can trust this guy because he obviously is in -- telling the truth about both sides. brian: one thing that's consistent he never speaks up. goes in there and goes dear diary. little thought bubbles pops up and keep it for a rainy day. >> he didn't have an actio axe d yesterday. >> harris: thank you. brian: i think he had an axe to grind. he didn't like the way he was fired. >> harris: shattered, read it jillian, give us the news. jillian: good morning. good morning to you at home as well. the government contractor accused of leaking top secret nsa documents also wanted to burn down the white house. reality winner denied bail

3:55 am
attention but that was pretty damning. >> harris: i wanted to start there because those are two different narratives in the media last night. what do you make of it. >> very clear that comey has a history of manipulating the media in order to cover his own tail. he admitted under oath yesterday he leaked the memo to his friend who then leaked it to the "new york times" and then the "new york times" ran with the story without actually seeing the memo. in order to get a special prosecutor, right? and i think it's also very startling that the senate intelligence committee itself has not actually seen the memos either. that as revealed during line of questioning. as reporter watching comey talk about this, this my inclination is man i'm never going to trust what this guy has to say. i think it's very shocking to see a narrative come out painting him as a boy scout who is on this quick sodic quest for truth and justice he is a spineles spine we w.

president tells fox news they are considering their options whether comey's leak to the media violated his fbi employment agreement. jonathan turley, the famous attorney and also law professor down in washington, d.c. makes a great case. that is mr. comey may have broken the law in releasing those documents because remember we heard the story as soon as he left the meeting with the president he went with his secure fbi laptop would make the notes. when you make notes on government property like that laptop that belongs to the government. he was not authorized to release that and he did. it's a lot of gray out there charged probably not. he is the leaker. >> harris: important point that you are making is this not a personal i pick up a post-it and make a note. this was then a government document. that's the point you are making. brian: excellent communicator for law enforcement guy used to falling case following cases.

to aline the way we talked about our work with the way the political campaign was describing the same activity which was inaccurate. we had a criminal investigation open. brian: just to be detail from is a source close to attorney general loretta lynch. he wasn't alone. i said to everyone use the word matter not investigation. he said that's traditional with investigations not to reveal it publicly. james, no one said a word including james comey. steve: you know what's interesting about that. brian: i might as well be totally accurate. here is the quote. there is the tweet no. one, including the director, contested that view. steve: i thought you had summarized it. what's interesting then is they dispute what mr. comey said. also mr. comey was asked about a "new york times" article regarding russia and campaign ads had conversations with the intel community. mr. comey said that story not true then the "new york times"
4:09 am
looked at it and said we stand by our sorry so obviously the "new york times" doesn't trust what mr. comey said yesterday regarding the fake news. other thing is it weighs seven months ago on the night that hillary clinton lost the election that her campaign team put together the excuse that lingers to this day the reason she lost was because of russia. and ultimately that generated the hearing yesterday with mr. comey. if you missed it, here is amy parnes who wrote the book shattered, on this program 35 minutes ago. >> she wanted that case out there. she wanted to make the case that it was all russia and jim comey and this was their strategy from the very beginning that they were going to push. it's still something that you hear her talking about right now. she is not looking inward to blame herself or what she did on the campaign. and i think a lot of democrats, particularly want to hear about that because they want to know how do we learn from this if there were problems with message and that
4:10 am
they were overline on data and they didn't mix in the art with the science. and that was the problem. brian: that's fascinating to see shattered still going to be a movie and still top three. steve: isn't it going to be a movie? didn't we just live through it? >> harris: reality. brian: i was fascinated by one line more than anybody else. he said to james comey i leaked out to the "new york times" in the hope that it would -- it would lead to a special counsel. and that's robert mueller seated. >> harris: i mean. brian: wait a second. >> harris: he knows how it works. he got up at 3:00 in the morning, that was his 3:00 a.m. call. it's linear and some people argue that it's revenge. it is linear. cause and effect. cause and effect. by definition, revenge, perhaps. >> only other thing that's interesting about the story is, you know, we had heard
4:11 am
ahead of time that mr. trump asked mr. comey for loyalty, right? and yesterday mr. trump's personal attorney said he never asked him that. and you know what that says? that says there are no tapes. >> harris: that's interesting. brian: sooner or later the president has to answer that question. >> harris: smoke over your shoulder i was mentioned this. steve: i left something on the grill. >> harris: not to worry, everybody. jillian, catch us up. jillian: good morning to you guys. we do have serious news too get to now. starting with a fox news alert. british prime minister theresa may failing to secure a. no party has enough representation to maintain control. may is facing immense pressure to resign.

4:34 am
something i saw was kind of somatic. you saw the white house jumping out in front of the hearing asking for support from republicans. we saw steve rice. we saw from marco rubio. it was crickets out there outside that room. why is that among republicans. >> harris, i noticed the same thing yesterday. typically at a hearing like this you will ask question and pound the table and state a conclusion. defend the president. >> they didn't do it. here is why. it's the president's fault. the president has given republicans pause before they jump into the fox hole. in parlance because is he not very popular. his numbers don't give confidence they can defend him and some of his tweets. the message president has got to get if he wants people in his fox hole don't make it hard for those people. the two tweets about barack obama wiretapping trump tower and then the tapes about comey give republicans on the hill pause. they are not sure thowf go to defend him. they want to defend him. they should be pounding the table. it's important for the policies to get enacted that
4:35 am
the president be successful. harris: but the president is on the line here. a lot is at stake. i get all that maybe you are not going to always agree with him and saw what the establishment did in the run-up. they ran away until they had to come to the table with this president. >> right. harris: i get all of that. had you had an opportunity with james comey saying i'm a weakling. i couldn't stand up to the president and loretta lynch. the tweets wrote themselves. press releases wrote themselves. >> bowl was on the table to come to the defense of the president. the point here is having been in the white house. if it gives them pause. they are plirgses they will weigh both sides and judge how far should i go? brian: they don't want to be contradicted. >> my message here is the president can create more allies. he should create more allies. but he has got to be more judicious about what he treats and how far he goes. steve: they are all in the same fox hole together. ultimately with the midterms and every member of congress is going to be -- is up for election. they hope to be reelected.
4:36 am
you know, if they don't get stuff done, you know, if tax reform. doing something about the affordable care act. it's either they hang together or hang separately. >> i agree with that what makes a politician a politician is they decide if they want to jump in a fox hole with you. you want to create environment want to jump in that fox hole. you have to earn it. politicians never give it. brian: james comey came out and stunned me by saying yeah i leaked that the "new york times" to a surrogate you can find him at columbia and go send it in. makes you wonder what else is going on. also his private notes which ultimately might be government property. steve: are. brian: never turned over to the senate investigative committee or the house intelligence committee. do you think the president should go in the direction of legal action for that? >> the very fact that james comey says he no longer has them are not personal. they are government property. harris: exactly. >> is he on thin ice here. i don't know because i'm not a lawyer. if i were the senate i would have pounded comey and kept
4:37 am
the questioning going. have you ever relied on. how many times has this columbian professor ever done. this how many other third parties outside the done it. they let him go answered needs to explain that. steve: the president tweeted this morning despite some false statements and lies complete vindication for him and wow, comey is a leaker. that really is very damning for mr. comey because he likes to presented himself as boy scout or last honest man in washington, d.c. >> right. steve: turns out how many times have we heard donald trump say the real story regarding russia are the leaks from the deep state that are out to destroy him. >> the president is right. he is not a subject of the investigation. with you that fact never leaked. that's troubling. two, there is no evidence of collusion. i understand why the president feels so strongly about this and wants to lift the cloud. if you know you never did anything wrong and the fbi is still investigating you or anybody. harris: and they have nothing. >> have you legitimate human desire and need to say it's not true.
4:38 am
somebody should make it go away. we all know it's not true. in the political realm, the president has to do this with discipline and wise approach. not just a smack them approach. harris: how do you turn the wheel? now you are going into the weekend with all these different narratives coming out of the hearing. the choice act happened with dodd frank and rolling back some of that in the house. that was one tweet that republicans could have -- i'm still beating the drums on why republicans aren't stepping up. and they have a weekend to do this. what should be next? >> the lesson is the clinton years, frankly. when all this noise was taking place in the clinton era. they got very good and smart announcing initiatives making news. harris: exactly. >> that's what president trump needs to do and keep doing. harris: and republicans. >> fbi director announced fracture he competes with himself. spread it out on the planning calendar, you are not going to win every day you will win more days than not. brian: more to do what bill clinton did. lanny davis answers all these questions. all my lawyers answer all those questions. if you want to talk about anything else, you know,
4:39 am
whether it's going on with the u.k., game on. >> walled off separate unit. let the outside lawyers handle it the white house staff needs discipline. the president needs discipline. they're policy people. that's what president trump was elected to door. the truth is if they pass policies and g.d.p. hits 3% and wages group particularly for blue collar americans. the president is going to be in strong shape. that's what he was elected to do. harris: flood the zone with that narrative probably pretty quickly. >> that's what he has to be known for. steve: ari, for dropping by our new mezzanine level couch today, we are going to buy you a barbecue. just go out in front of the street in front of building. brian: and band on turf. steve: we will find out. great to see you. turn around, look here ho is here doing the headlines. jillian: good morning. if you are in a big mood, what else are you going to buy today? steve: i'm not paying. i'm not pulling coin. it's free for everybody. come down and have breakfast

brian: 14 minutes before the top of the hour, former fbi director james comey wrote his memo employees about his meetings with president trump because he couldn't trust the president, for example. >> i was alone with the president of the united states or the president elect soon to be president. the subject matter i was talking about matters that touch on the fbi's core responsibility and that relate to the president -- president-elect personally. and then the nature of the person. i mean, i was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting, so i thought it really important to document.
4:47 am
brian: so andy pudzer. he joins us now with reaction to the testimony as someone dose close to the president. andy, you heard he didn't trust the president so he took some notes right afterwards and then leaked them to the "new york times." that's how he found out about it. does -- when you think of the term obstruction, does that come to your mind because have you a legal background, too. you are a lawyer. >> i would say number one, what you need to keep in mind is, this is a disgruntled former employee testifying about the boss who fired him. you have to look at his testimony in that con texas. secondly, is he a very, very live law enforcement official who wrote a bunch of memos. the only reason he would have written them is to cover himself later. when is he writing them, that's what he is thinking. this is to cover me if anything happened down the road. testifying against somebody who fired him. was there obstruction? look. number one, of the president denies -- the only possibility with obstruction was this mike
4:48 am
flynn him saying he hoped that he could. brian: see his way through to clear him. >> because there is no conclusion. with respect to the russia investigation, there is no obstruction. so those issues are dead. the only thing left is this mike flynn, number one the president says it didn't happen. number two, even if it didn't happen, i have to tell you as a ceo which is what i was for 17 years. if you call one of your subordinates in the office and want them to say something you don't say i hope you'll do it? you say do. this is not what happened in this discussion. this is not the way donald trump would have viewed that. no, there is no obstruction there. number three, even if he said what comey claims he said, allen dershowitz who is highly respected attorney. a liberal, a democrat said he had absolutely had the constitutional right to do this. the fbi director doesn't control the president. the president is in charge of the attorney general and of the fbi. they report to him. he is the nation's top law enforcement. not comey. brian: let me push back the
4:49 am
president cleared the room to have a one-on-one, number one. number two is he has been accused or the rumor is that he did the same thing with the national intelligence director saying come on put an end to the russia stuff. there is nothing there. would that complicate issues when robert muller goes through it? >> i think everybody, whether it was rogers or the director of national intelligence, what's his name -- begins with a c. >> couts. >> they never had pressure in any respect. the only thing there is this conversation between comey and the president that the president denies on flynn. one of the top legal experts in the country says there is no legal problem with that. brian: ari fleischer says get back to work. get the economy going. >> the economy is on fire and just not getting covered. 400,000 more people are working since the beginning of the year. last year. 600,000 full time jobs and 200,000 fewer part-time jobs. so they are better jobs.

5:04 am
that trillion trump has never been under fbi investigation, which we knew anyway. harris: almost didn't get out with many members of the media. john king, says this will probably get buried. it is not going to break the headlines. >> the reason being what we saw about jim comey last night. he is a leaker. washington leaker. he is the deep state. everything wrong with washington. self-promoting, taking memorandums he written, following meetings, i was so stunned, so shocked didn't know who to call. head of fbi, career law enforcement officer, so stunned by a private meeting, he initiated the first private meeting with the president. brian: he denies that? you mean in january. >> he asked for a private one-on-one meeting. this was standard operating procedure that the president meet with the fbi director one-on-one because jim comey set that agenda. steve: extraordinarily when you think about it, come to leakers, something like reality winner or somebody as low level.
5:05 am
now former director of the fbi be a leaker is extraordinary. a month ago under inquiry by chuck grassley, senator from great state of iowa, mr. comey said i never leaked top secret stuff. denied doing it through his sure row bat and talking testimony, this is he revealed he is as cory said a leaker, watch. >> president tweeted on friday after i got fired i better hope there are not tapes. i woke up in middle of night on monday nights because it didn't dawn on me originally, might be corroboration for our conversation. might be a tape. my judgment i needed to get that out in the public square. i asked a friend of mine to share content of memo with the reporter didn't do it myself for variety of reasons. i asked him to. that might prompt a appointment of special counsel. i asked a close friend of mine to do it. >> was that mr. witis? >> no. >> who was that.
5:06 am
>> a good friend of mine, a professor at columbia law school. steve: that good friend is daniel richmond, professor at columbia law school. special counsel as james comey when he was fbi director. do you follow his timeline, cory? do you agree with the timeline he gave? >> timeline does not add up, but what he testified under oath, he knew, jeff sessions attorney general would recuse himself from the russian investigation. this is statement he made on february 15th. i know jeff sessions is going to recuse himself from this investigation. jeff sessions did not recuse himself from the russia probe until february 2nd. two weeks full in advance. we also know "the wall street journal" wrote a story on march 1st. what it said, this hand-wringing at fbi how to get the attorney general to recuse himself because there is no procedure in place except public pressure. steve: corey, you're saying james comey the former fbi
5:07 am
director was making stuff up yesterday? >> i'm saying candidly, jim comey had information about jeff sessions and wanted jeff sessions removed from the investigation, he said so basically yesterday, wanted him removed, and timeline doesn't add up and comey isn't telling truth. brian: you're seeing on theme of leaking that the fbi director knew about the kislyak meetings, knew if that payment exposed, public pressure would be so great he would have to recuse himself. knowing he has it in the arsenal how do you leak it to the press. sessions is forced to own up to it, without telling the president he recuses himself which causes, eventually spurs special counsel. >> exactly right. harris: we don't know if that went through another friend. that wasn't just a friend, daniel richmond. he is so good at what he does as an expert has done it in front of congressional hearings. that is a special friend to call at 3:00 not morning. i want to move on from that. i want to talk about the

matter but jim comey never had wherewithal or courage to report that to anybody? harris: coming out strong enough from the white house. brian: they're not. i want you to hear this. this is yes, ma'am comey describing why at six foot seven, probably 240 pounds, with a brand new president he didn't come forward to tell somebody how upset he was about the one-on-one meetings. >> why didn't you stop and say, mr. president, this is wrong? i can not discuss this with you? >> a great question. maybe if i were stronger i would have. i've seen the tweet about tapes. lordy, i hope they're tapes. brian: he didn't come forward. so upset jots it down but didn't come forward. >> it is very clear as government official, if you think someone asked you to obstruct justice, a obligation, duty, responsibility to report that. if you don't it is punishable by three years in jail. we clearly know there was no
5:10 am
obstruction of justice. president says i hope you get the flynn thing on its way. jim comey was not strong enough? director of fbi and wasn't strong enough to pick up the phone and call somebody. this is all politics. >> couldn't stand up to loretta lynch. >> guy is weak as can be. i'm glad the president fired him. he is swamp creature. everything wrong with washington. if he had been fired he should have been fired for leaking information. steve: the president's lawyer said donald trump never asked him for loyalty. what that would suggest is, maybe there aren't any tapes? >> maybe the tape, maybe there is not a tape. it doesn't really matter. brian: oh, it matters. >> i don't know the answer. i don't work in the white house. here is what i know. i know two people were part of that conversation. jim comey and president trump. what we saw yesterday, was jim comey has a problem telling the truth. look back at previous testimony in front of congress. he had to correct his statements then have hard time remembering what took place then. brian: called the president a liar. harris: nobody asked him to do
5:11 am
anything with regard to back off. he said no one pressured me. steve: except loretta lynch. >> loretta lynch. only people influenced election, was obama administration, loretta lynch, jim comey trying not to move forward with an investigation because he was asked not to. steve: corey, doesn't it look to you, jim comey was source of leak and had memos, doesn't it look like he kept memos as kind of an insurance policy so if he ever got najim, by the way, mr. president, i've been taking really good notes, this is what you told me? harris: shells like revenge. >> he worked for previous administration never took a memo after leaving a meeting. he asked for private meeting in the first place, trump tower. was so compelled willtrump tower, started typing in his vehicle according to his own testimony? this is cya in the business. you know what that means. cover your you know what. harris: we got it. >> jim comey is about protecting

jim comey. not doing what is best for the country or the president. brian: comey era is done, probably through, out of a job, will get a better-paying job. what is your advice to the white house now? where should they focus? >> i think after yesterday's testimony, what the president should do is exactly what his team started to do, any questions that relate to any potential discussions about russia which the president had nothing to do with, i was there every day, go to his attorney, they can deal with it. harris: marc kasowitz. >> marc kasowitz will deal with it any inquiries -- brian: 2:45 with the press conference, president with remainian leader, questions come from about russia will he punt. >> he should talk about infrastructure and wall. harris: what do you think he will do? >> i hope the president says -- brian: you doesn't know, corey. >> he already tweeted a couple times. >> i love when he tweets. harris: good to see you, corey.

she was supposed to win a huge mandate and majority moving forward. surprisingly she ended up with a hung parliament. the queen gave her permission to form a government but a minority government. that means no bun party had the 326 seats needed for majority. conservatives predicted to get 319. while the labour party got 261. other small parties making up the rest. she has just spoken, having met the queen. here is what she said. >> i have been to see her majesty the queen and i will now form a government, a government that can provide certainty and lead britain forward at this critical time for our country. reporter: she may be sounding optimistic there, but and she may have won the most seats but supporters of jeremy corbyn, the far left leader celebrating this morning. many thought the labour party could be wiped out. corbym remarkly led his party close to a coup.
5:19 am
may wanted personal mandate. it backfired. rumors how long she can stay on as prime minister in the long term. even though she announced she won't resign and stability is what is needed. listening to her speech, she mentioned she would form a government with the close friends, dup. that is northern ireland unionist party. what will they want in exchange for giving 10 votes needed to push her over the majority. we'll find that out i'm sure quite a quicktime. steve: benjamin hall, thank you very much. according to exit polls, number one and two issues regarding election over there, were wages and pensions. they didn't like her plan because it sounded like she wanted to charge the elderly, senior citizens more money for their care. harris: it is complicated matters too, to have a couple terror attacks leading up to this. steve: three. harris: you're right. not just manchester and london bridge. heartbreaking. brian: can anything happen

leading double lives. living as american citizens and terrorist operatives for hezbollah. investigators say they scouted potential targets for attacks that includes new york's laguardia airport and the panama canal. the two men from new york and michigan, charged with providing material support to the terror organization. they are both naturalized u.s. citizens and face up to 20 years in prison. steve: jillian, thank you very much. geraldo rivera joins us. >> nice new digs. steve: thank you very much. cost us a fortune. according to "new york post" -- >> same couch? brian: less thigh room. >> we put niece pleather on it. according to trump camp they said regarding mr. testimony's yesterday it could not have gone better because everybody saw through comey. they regard him as liar and liker, lordy. >> liar, leaker, lordy. i agree certainly showed that
5:26 am
james comey is no saint. he is a washington player. he was someone who got into the morass, the muck of it all, leaking strategically, damning information about his boss. he is washington insider. he is revealed just another one of these players. particularly when you remember that you got this 25-year-old kid, reality winner who is facing 10 years in jail. she can't even make bail because she leaked this nsa document. steve: she wants to burn down the white house. >> whatever she is, the fact of the matter how different is james comey if is he leaking vital information, so damning about the president. harris: to your president, geraldo, we're learning there may be steps attorney for the president can take at this point. they're kind of weighing their options. what should be on the short list of options in terms of dealing with james comey? >> certainly you have to start a doj probe, harris. what about this leak?
5:27 am
was the leaks itself illegal? was this material, certainly was highly sensitive. was it secret? is there a violation? i think probably not but there is no doubt there is a complaint that can be lodged against james comey within the department of justice. harris: were those his memos alone to look? that is point of contention. they are not personal property. so it is in fact a leak. i would understand, geraldo if he passed on to his friend. >> it is not even a close call. it is obviously a leak. the question is and unethical. the question still legal? i think probably goes too far. but what it does do, let's you know morally speaking, speaking this is no paragone of virtue. this is a player, a partisan in the muck of washington. harris: democrats knew it. that's why they wanted him out to begin with. >> remember how hypocritical the democrats are now, they hated
5:28 am
this man james comey last year. they totally blamed -- steve: said he has got to be fired. >> the dork who stole the election from hillary clinton. last year they hated him. now they love him. clearly not paragone of virtue. brian: first tweet in a while. despite so many statements lies, total vindication, wow, comey is leaker. what the president does not want to talk about i imagine what they're saying on other channels, other people are running with obstruction. did he commit obstruction of justice with comey meeting with him one-on-one, saying back off flynn, there is nothing with russia? >> if i may, brian to the appropriateness one-on-one meeting let me say as an attorney clearly there is no possible way to get to obstruction by what the president did in that meeting with james comey. that is obstruction. it is clumsy. it is though mow motivated by compassion. he wanted to help out mike
5:29 am
flynn. mike flynn is a war hero. harris: a good guy. >> down on the balls of his -- right now. the guy can't get a job, pardon my salty language. this is a president i know for many, many years to be -- brian: by the way i love general flynn. he is a great guy. >> he screwed up, got fired as as a result of it. he is in a jam because he probably lied about screwing up. that is where the whole thing is going, it is not obstruction because people -- harris: talking impeachment -- >> harris i'm glad you brought it up. it went from 3% to 0% with comey's testimony. there is no possible way that anything that the president of the united states did as described in this hearing yesterday remotely comes close to a high crime or misdemeanor. drop that impeachment talk right now. it just wastes the nation's time. there was no obstruction of justice, period. brian: national intelligence director says he pulled me aside too.
5:30 am
what if mike rogers says he pulled me aside too, is that a problem? >> it would be a problem for both of those gentlemen because they testified under oath that did not happen. they have already testified in this president no way, shape or form -- steve: pressured me. >> tried to interfere with any of their intelligence protection, period. seems to me this thing is almost over. here is what i will happen, i believe. people like mike flynn, i don't know who else is involved, certainly not president of the united states, people like mike flynn, anyone who lied to fed is in a jam now. they will go after all the perjurers. if indeed the president taped conversations with comey, i'm under the assumption everything the president does is taped one way, shape or form. those people don't belong to the people doing taping, they belong where they were done to the people of united states of america. it will be pursuit of those tapes. but, if the president is correct. look, here you had a situation with marco rubio i thought
5:31 am
really had his greatest day as senator. he was terrific in, most important thing, they finally got to the point of all things that have been leaked, comey having this open relationship with the "new york times," one thing they never leaked was the president of the united states is not under investigation. duh. steve: everybody knew that. closing argument. duh. >> president has to get more professional. he needs corey lewandoski. steve: thank you. brian: 29 minutes before the top hour because geraldo long. what happens to president. former campaign director david bossie is next. here is king and country. ♪

today. hair is with us. today of course is is the james comey testimony postgame show. right now let's bring in former deputy campaign manager for donald trump for president, fox news contributor, david bossie. good morning to you. >> good morning, guys. steve: we discovered yesterday, james comey is leaker. leaked embarrassing stuff to the "new york times" through a surrogate. according to our own catherine herridge a source close to the president telling fox that they're considering options whether comey's leak to the media violated fbi rules and stuff like that. what sort of options are y'all considering? >> well, first of all, i'm disappointed as can be to learn that about jim comey. leaking that information is a devastating thing to his credibility and to his, you know, his, his life's work as fbi director really is going to be to turn out in shambles.
5:37 am
i'm actually somebody over the year who has defended director comey because i thought he was really, and i've known jim comey for many years. i don't know him well but i worked with him back in the 1990s, i always thought he was a good, solid person. this is so disappointing for me to learn that for political reasons he undermined this president, for his own personal gain. steve: it was after he got fired by this president. >> it doesn't matter. leaking information about a private conversation with the president of the united states, may be a violation, we're going to let law enforcement figure out if james comey broke any laws about that. but whether he did or not, in a time when this president is under siege by the deep state, by this bureaucracy that is permanent here in washington, by the intelligence communities, including the fbi, that are undermining his presidency and
5:38 am
trying to delegitimize him, at a time when that is happening, for former director of the fbi, to set an example for the rest of the government, to leak these types of documents, is, to me is devastating to jim comey and really harmful to our nation. brian: but, david, here's the thing, right now the democrats are saying what a great guy he is. it is wonderful and so believable. the president's the liar. however there is a different story about a few months ago, we caught most of it on tape. let's watch. >> we're all disturbed, first of all, by the letter which really broke precedent, was over the advice of leaders in the justice department. i'm not challenging mr. comey's motivation but i do think it was unwarranted. it was a mistake. >> he has got a big burden of proof so to speak on him for why he did what seems to be such an appalling act that goes against the tradition of prosecutors at
5:39 am
every level of government. it was, what i heard about it, i found out hard to believe comey, who i thought had some degree of integrity would do this. >> i think he made a mistake on this. he clearly has a double standard. in these jobs if you're not in it for a while, you can't take the heat, i think he just couldn't take the heat from the republicans. it is really unfortunate because i believe he is a good person. maybe he is not in the right job. >> i am so disappointed in comey. he is let the country down for partisan purposes. that is why calling him the new j he had he garr hoover. i believe that. >> do you think jim comey should resign, senator reid? >> of course, yes. harris: hmmm. brian: different story now. what are we to believe, david. i'm so disillusioned? >> they wanted to fire him themselves. hillary clinton would have fired him on day one of her administration if shed won.
5:40 am
let me go back to one thing which is very important underlying issue. yesterday he's hearings provided zero evidence of collusion between our campaign and the russians because there wasn't any. and so their underlying, their underlying case has just crumbled. now all they can do is is attack the president over his treatment of jim comey. that is a he said, he said situation between the president and jim comey. i'm with the president on this. steve: as it turns out all the president wanted for mr. comey to say what members of congress already knew, what everybody in the intel community knew, that he was not being investigated personally. david bossie, thank you very much this morning for joining us from washington, d.c.,. >> you bet. brian: 20 minutes before the top of the hour. one of the most revealing moments of the comey hearing. >> why didn't you stop and say mr. president, this is wrong, i can not discuss this with you? >> that's a great question. brian: good.

mr. president, this is wrong, i can not discuss this with you? >> that's a great question. maybe if i were a stronger, i would have, look, i've seen the tweet about tapes. lordy, i hope they're tapes. harris: oh, lordy. judge jeanine pirro is here. is there any penalty for being weak? can't stand up? >> what is so amazing about this, jim comey comes across as someone who is so wiley and socal lating, he is a predator. he make as decision that the president is going to lie to him before even has his first meeting. and so he decides that he is going to start regarding or memorizing what was said in their conversations. and then he gets to the point he says, you know what, i'm going to leak this stuff now? why is he so comfortable leaking? what is it about his history, his background as a prosecutor? what i would want to know is, is he leaker? is the guy who was so comfortable, and the answer to
5:46 am
why he didn't leak it himself about the seagulls and beach and my wife was hogwash. it was a distraction. you know what? he did the same thing just now with the senator. what he said basically was, lordy, i hope there are tapes. well that doesn't answer the question as to why someone else was -- harris: does it matter who he leaked it to? daniel richmond is not just a buddy. >> this guy is a liberal guy. he worked in the u.s. attorney's office. he was the appellate attorney there. you develop a very close relationship. i know from being d.a. with my appellate people, okay? you talk to them about serious issues. but the fact he was so comfortable that he did this to a liberal professor and leaked -- tells me that, this isn't the first time that the guy's leaked. tells me is a predator. he was looking to take donald down, the president down, excuse me. what he wanted to do was preserve himself. he is an operator. he is part of the washington elite.

5:48 am
underreported, he said if i get this out to the "new york times," my hope is to get my side of the story out and launch a special counsel. really? now all of sudden a guy that will not be investigated, you're determined to get a special counsel. is this about revenge? >> it is clearly about revenge. this is a set-up. this is predator setting up the president, as opposed to saying, mr. president, i know you're knew to government, i know this isn't something comfortable with, we're not supposed to be talking about this kind of thing. he could have helped him in very simple way. he refused to do it. brian: he froze, he was so shocked. >> jim comey is not afraid of anyone. harris: not captain courage. >> you know? i love the way he nuanced that one himself. steve: you have plenty to talk about this week. >> wait until my open this weekend. steve: judge thank you very much. up next, king and country rocks the concert stage with their
