less effective as public servers. >> mike: we have team fox coverage. kristin has reaction from the white house but here first we go to garrett for the latest in the russian investigation. good evening, where some democrats upset about donald trump junior and paul manafort be in interviewed. >> they invited both men to testify at public hearings this wednesday and even threatened to issue subpoenas if they did not agree. on friday they said it is now negotiating with don junior manafort to come in for private interviews. several democrats are upset that those interviews will not be public the parable not be under oath particularly given that earlier this month the president son said he was willing to do both. here's l franklin unstated the union. >> notes not good enough. it should be under oath. i did not know it would not be under oath. it should be under oath and they should release all of the documents. he did not say he will testify
publicly but under oath he said. so he should definitely do that. >> garrett: not long after that, chuck grassley shot back on twitter say, tell jake at cnn it's a crime to lie to congress whether trump junior's under oath or not. pretty sad way to conduct interviewed. grassley also indicated these interviews are not necessarily a one-time thing. he said they may still decide to bring both men and for public hearings down the road. >> mike: the white house also has a tough decision coming up regarding new sanctions on russia. we know the lawmakers in the building beyond you are unified. >> garrett: the house and the senate reached a deal to pass a new round of sanctions against russia. the bill also included wording that would block the president from rolling back any sanctions without congress' approval. the white house has been lobbying to have that part removed. arguing it limits their ability to negotiate.
today, there were mixed messages coming from the white house with newly appointed communication director, bay bay to same trump hasn't made up his mind on the bill and sarah huckabee saying trump supports it. regardless of what the president decides, congress is set to pass the sanctions. >> this is a strong bill and it imposes mandatory sanctions on russia. it provides for congressional review if the president wants to wager a lemonade sanctions it's very bipartisan, it has brought support if he vetoes a bill we will override it. >> the sanction bill could be the first veto of the administration with having -- it looks like that may not be the case. >> mike: thank you very much.
the president fired off a new round of tweets lemon the russian investigations", as as the funny russia witchhunt continues to groups are laughing at this. democrats and russians. it's very said the republicans, even some carried over the line on my back did very little to protect their president. team coverage continues with kristin fisher at the white house. today bay to hit the sunday shows for the first time is the first communications director, what was his message. >> kristin: one of it was to his own staff. he said in no uncertain terms to stop leaking they will be fired. >> if the leaks don't stop i will. on the staff because it's not right. it's not fair to the president, not fair to america for the people in the government. >> for the most part trumpet and anthony scaramucci were on the
same page but there was some daylight between them. there is a bill that would require congresses permission to lift sanctions before russia. today, sarah huckabee sander said that the president now supported that bill, while anthony scaramucci was less committal. >> we have to ask president trump that. it's my second or third in the job, my guess is that he will make that decision shortly. >> the administration's supportive of being tough on russia, particularly in putting the sanctions in place. the original piece of legislation was poorly written but we are able to work with the house and senate and the administration is happy with the ability to do that and make changes necessary. we support where the legislation is now. >> kristin: anthony scaramucci will try to get everybody in sync starting with the staff meeting sometime tomorrow. he will also travel with the
president to west virginia for the annual boy scout jamboree and then to ohio for a rally on tuesday. >> mike: what about the issue of pardons? the president created quite a stir about his pardon authority. >> kristin: to bring us up to speed on this issue, this started with washington post report on thursday which claims the president has asked his legal team about his pardon authority. including, whether not he could pardon himself. that prompted the president to tweak quote we will all agree that that the u.s. president have the complete power to pardon, why think of that when the only crime so far as leaks to against us. fake news. then today, anthony scaramucci and the president's personal attorney said that parted mean is a nonissue, here's what. >> we are not researching the issue because the issue pardon is [inaudible] the table. there is nothing to pardon from. >> the president does not need to pardon himself because he is not anything wrong.
>> kristin: so the message is that the president is not thinking about pardons because no one around him has committed crimes, including himself. but, anthony scaramucci did say bishop pardons did come up in an oval office meeting with the president last week. >> mike: kristin, many thanks. right now the death toll a vigil getting underway for the victims of which tragic human trafficking case in texas. not people have died after being packed in a semi truck parked at a walmart in sweltering heat. a walmart employee alerted police after someone in the truck asked for water. please see the truck did not have a working air-conditioning system and the heat reach dangerous levels. >> paramedics and firefighters found that each one had heart rates over 130 beats per minute which again they were very hot to the touch. these people were in the trailer without any water.
>> mike: will car has more with from our west coast bureau. are the victims expected to make a full recovery? >> many experienced heatstroke and that could have permanent brain damage for a number of those in the trailer. it was over 100 degrees in san antonio yesterday. please believe it may have been 150 degrees inside the trailer. the chief of police calling it a mass casualty situation. besides not having a working air-conditioner, there's no food or water. early survivors were rushed to the hospital, many vomiting and suffering from heatstroke. most victims were from men from mexico in their 20 and 30s but there were 213 -year-olds as well. the driver was arrested but this is the work of a much larger criminal organization. >> looking at the video from the store we found there were a number of vehicles that came in and picked up a lot of folks
that were in that trailer that survived the trip. looking at human trafficking. >> the trailer was found 150 miles from the border, very close to 35 in san antonio which is a major smuggling thoroughfare. the secretary of homeland security released a statement saying the smugglers have no regard for human life and seek only profits. the department of homeland security and its partners will continue to root out the smugglers and bring them to justice and dismantle their networks. they also released a statement calling it a heartbreaking tragedy. >> mike: heartbreaking story, what more do we know about the driver to make the associated press said that they have arrested a 1660-year-old from florida.
it's unclear what role he played. this is nothing new. immigrants in the past have suffocated in a trailer, and this year they conducted 2100 human smuggling investigations. that has led to more than 1500 convictions. they set to appear in court tomorrow. >> thank you very much. >> mike: emotions are running high in the for charlie guard. protesters are showing their support for the parents who are fighting for experimental treatment. the latest of elements has both side returned to court. plus israel take any safety measures over the jews on new bike? yeah, 'cause i got allstate. if you total your new bike, they replace it with a brand new one. that's cool. i got a new helmet. we know steve. switching to allstate is worth it.

two police officers were killed, muslims viewed the installation of metal detectors is a unilateral step to violate the status quo agreement and an effort by the israeli government to seize control of the religious i. the prime minister denies this. the violent protests broke out on friday after the government refused to remove the metal detectors and barred muslim men under the age of 50 from praying at the mosque. hundreds of palestinians were injured at least four were killed. later, a man snuck into the jewish west bank settlement and brutally murdered three israelis. on saturday, it's really forces launched a series of raids on palestinian homes. the un security council said to take up the situation on monday. in the past, outside groups have had very little influence in combing the situation in jerusalem. this time seems no different. >> mike: thank you conor.

i will bet many republicans don't yet either. >> the message and those delivering it have taken a beating. the dnc last month reported debt, not the kind of percy one on hand headed to the midterms. the republican national committee has raised $75.4 million while the democrats raised only 38.1 million. issues like healthcare have put a black mark on the gop this term. republican sources expect a procedural vote on healthcare reform on tuesday. yet despite promises to repeal and replace, it's not clear if they can get 50 gop senators to vote yes. paul ryan wants to remind folks that there have been successes on the hill despite the negative press. >> i know doesn't get much coverage in the media, it's not polarizing, but most of what we do in congress is bipartisan.
