3:25 am
steve: i don't like that, thank you. first of this kind ruling for massachusetts supreme court paving the way for it to become a sanctuary state some are wondering, the court saying they don't have to follow ice request. >> morning, steve, how are you? steve: when you were police when ice or ins were to call you and say, hey, there's somebody in the country illegally and we want you to hang onto them until day in court, what would you do? >> we would cooperate with them. the courts held people for up to 48 hours so that the federal officers can come down and take them into custody. steve: you always honored the detainers. the supreme court says that they
3:26 am
don't have to, right? >> right, this ruling that came out in the last couple of days is very clear that police officers can no longer detain individuals for the feds. they've changed operation with this decision. steve: some have suggested that that could turn massachusetts in first sanctuary state and you say that's not the case but this ultimately does commissioner make the job of local police much harder, doesn't it? >> oh, there's no question this is going to adversely affect public safety. when we have a situation where federal authorities can't coordinate with local authorities, that's a problem. there's legislators working on a bill that would allow that to happen. steve: this started with a case of cambodia national and couldn't make 1500 bond and he sat in jail because ice
3:27 am
requested that he be detained, right? what happened after that? >> that's correct. he appeared before the judge. the judge dismissed the case because the prosecution was not ready. once the dismissal happened, the judge also maintained custody of the individual for the federal authorities and he was -- he was picked up by the feds, by ice, but the case was appealed to a single justice and ultimately went to supreme court and the supreme court ruled in what is a well-thought out and balanced ruling. the problem is that they're saying legislation needs to occur if we are going to go back to the status quo and that's going to be a big push here in massachusetts. steve: you don't think the state legislature, common wealth up there is interested in that? >> probably not. the attorney general has come out in strong support of the ruling and so it's very clear.
3:28 am
both sides of this argument in the last 24 hours. i have spoken with people in both sides to have argument, both say makes massachusetts a sanctuary state. steve: sir, thank you very much for joining us today. >> thank you, sir. steve: what do you think about that? e-mail us, tweet us or facebook as well. coming up, a rocky road ahead for health care after senate republicans rejected a plan to repeal and replace obamacare, where do we go from here in we will talk to ohio congressman jim jordan as you isn't in billboard, he is coming up next. there's no crying in baseball except when your dad can't catch a foul ball. poor kid. but first happy birthday, the guy who is getting started today with 74 candles is mcjagger.

replacing the orng disaster. we're now one step closer to liberating our citizens from this obamacare nightmare. [cheers and applause] and delivering great healthcare for the american people. we're going to do that, too. >> there is a step forward in the senate yesterday for sure. yesterday yes on a motion to proceed. it's a long road to see whether or not they can get
3:33 am
a substantive bill passed. now we turn this morning to congressman jim jordan a member of the house freedom caucus. they did their job a couple months back to get the ball rolling. what's your reaction in the senate. >> a good step forward as the president said, that much closer to getting rid of this law that has driven up pressroom radio yums and been so bad for american families. we will see what happens in the senate over the next few days. i think you have got to be optimistic. first of all, you are an american and second of all we are getting closer to getting rid of this law. steve: congressman, it seemed like a long shot that this would pass even last week. what happened? >> i think the senate is going through the same process. had pretty extensive freedom caucus perspective. the big four changes in the bill when it was passed made it much better and we ended up supporting it in the end. the senate has gone through the same process. if they can't get an agreement on a comprehensive bill, we are all in favor of going back to repeal it first, the time before that
3:34 am
is effective is a year and a half. we have time then to replace it. after all, that's what we told the voters we were going to do. we have started the process here in the house to make end run around our leadership and bring up a clean legislation as well. remember before the inauguration we talked about putting that on president trump's desk. clean repeal. the same thing we put on president obama's desk last congress we could put that on president trump's desk. we know president trump would sign it then we would have time to put in the replacement and maybe as john mccain has talked, about maybe after we have repealed it we could actually talk with democrats come up with a good replacement that helps families across the country. steve: one of the reasons you were interested in that bill because in the senate, i think all but one republican voted for it. what's interesting yesterday, congressman, is the fact that we knew susan collins of maine was not going to vote for it, because she never has. but lisa murkowski who has six years now because she just got reelected last november, she didn't even want the debate to start
3:35 am
yesterday. >> no. it's frustrating and frustrates the american people so much. okay to vote on and talk about when it's election time we won elections in 10, 14, and 16. where this is a central issue in the campaign. now when it comes time to actually do it, when it really counts, somehow they can't find the vote. that is so frustrating to the american people. ainsley: why wouldn't she even vote yes for that why wouldn't the two senators vote yes to talk about it to debate it. >> you would have to ask them. i think to steve's point, senator murkowski had voted for it before. senator collins to her credit had been consistent. he had he hacon sis. >> we had news breaking overnight. learning attorney general jeff sessions is edging closer to launching big investigations into leaks of sensitive information. some classified information. >> good. he had: the president hased: g
3:36 am
you and other senators on the hill parallel track pushing investigations of james comey, the previous attorney general as well. you can talk a little bit about what you hope plays out here? >> we're going to push for an amendment today in committee for a special counsel to look into what james comey did. never forget what he did. the attorney general of the united states told the fbi director of the united states to go out and mislead the american people, when he was instructed to call the clinton investigation a matter, not an investigation. this is unprecedented. the united states justice department misleading the american public about an investigation. he did so willingly, he did so intentionally, he did so at the direction of the united states attorney general. this is unprecedented. he testified to that under oath. even democrat senator feinstein says we should investigate this. we are calling for a special counsel to look into this issue. ainsley: democrats are -- they wanted the investigation into president trump for saying i hope you can let this go. they wanted to investigate this meeting with that
3:37 am
russian attorney with donald trump jr. meeting with the russian attorney to talk about the hillary clinton stuff which ended up leading to nothing burg and they ended up talking about adoption. so, do you feel like you have the right to do this, the democrats, what they have done is worse than what the republicans have done? >> the russians tried to influence the election. his attorney general told his fbi director go tell the american people in the midst of an election something that is false and why did they do it? what was their motive? because they wanted hillary clinton to be the next president of the united states. that is not supposed to happen in a great country like ours. you want to talk about collusion? think about this. think about what james comey did after he was fired. he leaks a memo to a friend to the "new york times" and for a stated objective he stated this under oath for the stated objective of creating momentum for a special counsel not just any special counsel his good friend, his pred said sore bob mueller. if we are not going to look into that we are not doing our job. let's look into that call for the justice department
3:38 am
to call for a special counsel to look into that. when i talk to my constituents in the fourth district of ohio. they are saying why aren't you looking into this matter. we are tired of waiting. we are going to push it as hard as we can to make this happen. ainsley: looking at him leaking information to the columbia professor why he didn't indict hillary clinton. his knowledge of fusion g.p.s.? >> when have you ever seen -- i mean, this is what drives american people crazy, this double standard. there is one standard for us regular fellow and a different one if your name is clinton or comey or lynch or obama there is a different standard there when have you ever seen the subject of the investigation's husband get to meet with the attorney general three days before the subject of the investigation is interviewed by the fbi? have when have you ever seen that happen? steve: you wouldn't even believe that in a movie. >> of course not. this is crazy. the idea we are not going to get to the bottom of this and spend all this time on this russian issue that's fine, we can do that let's get to the truth of everything so the american people have the full story. they know what james comey
3:39 am
was involved in and how he did this ed: jim jordan everything from investigating leaks to the important issue of healthcare being tackled. good to see you this morning. steve: congressman, go help that guy in statuary hall who is setting up those tables and making all the react, would you? >> i will do that. steve: once again, and you touched on this, it sounds like jeff sessions is about to announce that there will be some investigation into the leaks of sensitive information to newspapers and whatnot. of course, we will be interesting to see what participated that was the president of the united states. why isn't my attorney general investigating? ed: now he is anthony scammer will be live here next hour. steve: mooch. ainsley: jillian has headlines. jillian: good morning. video have you so see. police officer foiled a potential terror attack, the suspect to the ground. the cop throwing giant plastic border on the man

going on the road. that's what the president started doing last night. if he can break this logjam on healthcare. you can see the energy there last night. apes ains president also had a message to lawmakers when it comes to healthcare. he had message to criminal illegal immigrants is he going to get them out of the country. he had a message for jeff sessions that we have seen play out in the media the last few days. steve: i don't know that he mentioned jeff sessions last night in ohio but it was very clear yesterday during that joint availability with the prime minister said he was very disappointed in jeff sessions that he had not recused himself regarding the russia thing and very disappointed that he was not been looking into these intel leaks to news sources. well, now, fox news has just learned that apparently in the next week or so, jeff sessions will announce several leak investigations because, you know, when you pick up one of the big newspapers and you see all
4:03 am
of this critical information, sensitive information. ed: sensitive, sometimes classified. steve: sometimes in the paper where it's not to be all in an effort to discredit this president. that is bad for our national security. ainsley: some of those leaks that have been in the newspaper have come from that columbia professor. i'm talking about james comey who leaked information about his conversations with president trump. those memos to that columbia professor. well, there are some congressman, there are four in particular, jim jordan someone of them. we interviewed him earlier. they are concerned about those types of leaks. they want to investigate james comey and loretta lynch. it's not just what he released comey to the columbia professor but also loretta lynch asking for the hillary clinton emails to be a matter instead of a criminal investigation. they want to get to the bottom of that why comey did not indict hillary clinton. also the conversation between bill clinton and loretta lynch on the tarmac, absolutely. and the connection that hillary clinton has with the uranium one deal and the clinton foundation.
4:04 am
ed: want to raise the stakes. they also don't want to just talk about it they want a special counsel. robert mueller can be investigating a president. another special counsel taking a look at all these leaks what did james comey do, what did loretta lynch do. steve: you have got to figure had hillary clinton won, the republicans would have launched an investigation into all of these things. >> ed ed no doubwhy haven't the attention of the news media and others been on those problems, maybe just has to do with the fact that they have a d after their names. watch this. >> think about what james comey did after he was fired. he leaks a memo through a friend to the "new york times" and for the stated objective, he said this under oath, for the stated objective of creating momentum for a special counsel and not just any special counsel, his good friend, his predecessor, his mentor bob mueller. holy cow, if we are not going to look into that, we
4:05 am
are not doing our jobs. let's call for the justice department to call for special counsel to look into that. steve: you have got to figure that the president of the united states is going to be happy to hear there is going to be an investigation into those things, the myriad of problems that he faced in the campaign that has had a little hangover. but he has also got to be happy that after bad mouthing jeff sessions for a couple of days and talking about how he is disappointed. now know that the attorney general is launching leak investigations. ed: remember the other tweet that he had in the mix of all of those where he was angry at the president that republicans were not defending him on the mueller situation. were not rallying around him. now you see jim jordan and other conservatives on the hill saying wait a second there, should be a broader investigation here. and the president just tweeting a few moments ago about last night. not about the leaks. but saying the crowd in ohio was amazing last night. broke all records. we all had a great time in a great state. we will be back soon. this is a key battleground. a state that barack obama had carried twice.
4:06 am
donald trump didn't just beat hillary clinton by a couple of points. he won by, i believe, 8 points. a state is he going to need in 2020 if he runs for re-election. it's very clear when you look at the "new york post" today. celina who was really ahead of the curve other journalists in spotting the trump rise. she was there on the ground in youngstown and says at 1:00 p.m., six hours before the rally, every road going into that arena was just completely full. ainsley: the same as on the campaign trail. people would line up hours in advance and fill those seats and sit there forever. one lady had traveled the entire country with him and continue to go to all of his rallies. he is in his element here. he is nature to do this especially looking ahead to 2020. if he wants to get reelected he is smart to go into these areas that hillary clinton won. is he good at this. steve: last night he appeared at the converted hockey arena. i think it only holds under 6,000 people. they were able to cram 8,000
4:07 am
people in it. they put 2,000 chairs. ed: don't tell the fire department. steve: it was his sixth rally as president of the united states. it was a mash up of a lot of the things we have heard him say over the last year or so which just reminds all of us and him that there is still a lot of work to be done in washington. ainsley: a mash up, i like that. steve: montage mash up. listen to this. ed: greatest hits. >> we will no longer be the foolish people. we will no longer be the stupid people that get taken care of so badly by our politicians. i think that with few exceptions no president has done anywhere near what we have done in his first six months. not even close. we are now one step closer to liberating our citizens from this obamacare

4:26 am
students, young students who benefit from school choice. >> right. the party of the left, of the democratic party is supposed to advocate for equality amongst students. and it's clear, based on the data that people that live in urban zip codes have a poorer quality of education. i experienced that myself. grew up in dallas and then my parents moved to a suburb in garland where there was school choice where we could go to any school within the district instead of the school that was in our zip code. so we had a pool of schools for my parents to decide okay, this school is working for my child. what happens is and this is why she is upset is that when you see students starting to migrate to a certain pool of schools and the population where some of the schools drop, then they eventually lose funding and have to shut the school down. so the teachers lose their jobs. but if the school isn't performing, then the school needs to be shut down. ed: what is randy really doing here? is the union chief really thinking about protecting
4:27 am
these public schools, the union jobs? is it more about that and less about the students? >> it is definitely about protecting the jobs of the teacher. but they use interesting strategy in my community that's worked in the past but i'm here to dispel the myth. they tell black communities that they are just trying to bust you out of your community. this is just segregation. and my response is very simple. if the school is failing, why the hell would you want to stay at the school? why? do you want a quality education for your child? and i think most parents can agree with that message. i think it's time to start putting the interest of the students first and not the teachers. ed: how about when union chiefs talk about social justice and not equality and opening up to school choice? >> exactly. we have seen schools that benefit from the school choice. you see doctor perry who had the charter school. not only did he get 100% of
4:28 am
the black kids that went to the school to graduate but all of them got full ride scholarships to college. we know school choice works because it's competition. it's the free market. i think conservatives and libertarians should get to the front of this fight to show the liberals how this is done. i think it's an opportunity to get people that typically wouldn't vote for our side to vote for us. we are advocating for kids. ed: you can hear it he is fired up this morning. lawrence jones at the blaze. thank you for joining us. >> thanks, ed. ed: a fox news alert meanwhile. attorney general jeff sessions could announce new criminal investigations into leaks as soon as today. anthony scammer is already plugging some of those leaks, the incoming white house communications director joins us live next. and what do the voters think about the president's rally last night in ohio? todd prior row is having breakfast with friends in the buckeye state. ♪ said hey, you

4:33 am
recusing himself regarding the russia thing and the president said mr. scammer also that he was very disappointed because he wasn't cracking down on leaks to pretty outlets regarding sensitive information. now fox news has learned that apparently the attorney general is really close to announcing investigations into these intel leaks. right? >> yeah. i think he has got a plan that he has put together and at some point, i don't know if it will be today, tomorrow or next week he will announce that plan. listen, we have to crack down on leaks on a number of different fronts. there seems to be some holdovers, political holdovers from the obama administration that are not helping. i'm certainly have the full responsibility here in the comm shop which i do believe will get corrected shortly. yes, i do think the leaks are a problem. people are suggesting i'm going to try to keep the leaks down to zero. that's absolutely impossible in washington. i'm learning about this now. what i do want to happen is that people that report to
4:34 am
me, if there are senior people inside the administration trying to get them to leak information on each other, we are getting that to stop right now. that does not serve the president. it doesn't serve his agenda. it's an indictment on the institution of the presidency. it makes all of us look bad. and i think the president himself deserves better than that and so we're going to try to hit a cultural reset on these leaks, not only here in the white house but i'm going to be working with the agencies as well. and the departments to do that. ainsley: anthony, what makes you think you can crack down on these leaks. what's your message to the democrats? they have everything that this president has done they have tried to stop it. mainstream media, too. many republicans out there are saying by hearing you say you are going to crack down on the leaks, many republicans are saying finally, get this to stop. >> well, listen, ainsley, again, i know it's a daunting task in some ways. but in a lot of other ways it isn't. because i have run two reasonably successful businesses. you are either going to work

he is a young guy. people make mistakes in life. you guys know that so i'm a big believer in redemption and giving people second chances but not here at the white house. we have to fix this. we have to fix it immediately because it's for our country and our president. ed: anthony, you said a moment ago the president deserves better than. this fair enough. there should not be criminal leaks that are aimed largely at damaging him, damaging his administration. but as you know, there are a growing number of conservatives saying wait a second, jeff sessions deserves better than this as weld. how can you explain? his action he may take in terms of these investigations are coming after the president has been beating him up on twitter, has done these interviews, has called him beleaguered folks saying why is this happening? please respond. >> message to fellow republicans and people that work with the president and my own personal experience with the president. the good news about the
4:37 am
president, he wears everything on his sleeve. the good news about his president he is an open communicator. we were talking about ed koch the other day legendary mayor of new york. ed once said i'm not getting the cancer, i'm giving you the cancer. the point he med meant by that he is going to fully express everything that's on his mind. the people that work for the president have to have a tough exso he skeleton to be able to handle that and for me and for the president and for jeff sessions i sort of got to let jeff sessions and the president or attorney general sessions handle that themselves. i would tell people to stay tough. the president likes tough people. the president likes fighters or well intentions. we don't want to fight like an italian family for no reason. we want to fight for the right reasons. right? ed: welcome to the nfl, i get it. fair enough. so why is he undermining his own attorney general? that's the question to answer. >> you can view it that way. i actually don't view it
4:38 am
that way. what the president is trying to do is signal to people i need your loyalty, i need your ad advocacy. if you are doing things i don't like i'm going to express that is he not a washingtonian. we are both new yorkers. steve: does he want a new attorney general, anthony? >> i don't know the answer to that i think we have got to let the -- steve: it kind of looks like it to a lot of people. >> you know what? mr. trump looks not like -- the president doesn't look like the typical president. he is handling himself in a typical way for the presidency. you could see that last night in ohio. you could see it the night before in west virginia. the reason why the american people love this man so much is that he is direct. direct to the messenger. direct to the citizen. and he is also expressing his displeasure. i would say to people in this town that are working with the president, stay tough, express your opinion. be loyal, and have confidence in yourself that you can get the job done. if you do that, i've seen that happen from my friends that have worked for him
4:39 am
inside the trump organization. i see that in here that he respects the people that can talk to him in a deferentially honest way but tell him the truth about how they feel because he is going to tell you exactly how he feels. ainsley: anthony, he has told all of us -- >> that's very refreshing to me. ainsley: he has told us about draining the swamp in washington that washington is stalling his agenda. he is going on the road and doing these rallies. even this morning latest tweet going after a republican senator, lisa murkowski because she was one of the two republican holdouts. the one who voted no yesterday just to debate repeal and replace. here is his latest tweet senator lisa murkowski of the great state of alaska really let the republicans and our country down yesterday. too bad. can we expect more tweets like this holding republicans accountable if they are not -- if they don't agree with him? >> let me draw a met for for you. head coach of a football team and in this case you have 50 or 52 people on the
4:40 am
team and you are trying to get everybody together but it's like corralling cats. and you know if you subordinate your own ego and subordinate your own ego for the country, the people of the united states and the republican party, the right thing to do is to stand side by side with the president. when you're not doing that, and imagine him as a football coach in the locker room, do you think that you're going to get chewed a little bit if you are not on side running the offensive coordination in the right way? steve: right. >> to me, that's a classic new yorker, letting you know exactly how you feel. what i don't like about washington is people do not let you know how they feel. they're very nice to your face and then they take a schiff or a my sety and stab it in your back. i don't like it. i'm a wall street guy and more of a front stabbing person and i would rather people tell directly how i feel about them than this sort of nonsense. let me finish. now that senator knows how the president feels about her. why don't you fix it?
4:41 am

was more focused on the financial space and financial regulatory space. i never had the opportunity to meet secretary tillerson. it would be unfair for me to comment on that. so what i have also said to members of the press. i just saw blake burman from fox business, if i don't know the answer i would rather tell you guys i don't know the answer than rather sound self-important and make up an answer. i will get back to you on it but here is what i would say, rex had a phenomenal career. we were at the boy scout event two days ago in west virginia. he was an eagle scout. they always try to do the right thing. my guess is we'll get this in harmony and get the communications going in a direction that the president will like. ed: all right. we appreciate it anthony scammer joining us live from the white house. >> great to be with you guys. steve: thanks, mooch. ainsley: eric trump helped warm up the crowd in ohio. the president's son is going to join us live at the top of the hour. steve: meanwhile todd prior row is having breakfast with

i rode back to the airport with him. he went to get on air force one, and he was just so happy. it's really great. it's great for him to actually be out there in real america with real peek, you know, who are dealing with real issues as opposed to washington politicians. ed: you're a businessman, your father talked about being a great negotiator in the campaign. mentioned moving forward on health care, but as you know, it's still a heavy lift. a lot of people in washington don't know what they're going to do. how do you put the pieces back together to make sure that you repeal and replace obamacare? >> i think he can get there, and then we go on to tax. which i think is important for the economy. but once again yesterday, i was on with you a couple of weeks ago, we were talking about how we just achieved many records for the s&p and the nasdaq and the russell 2,000 and everything else. once again yesterday, the dow broke another all-time record. i mean, the records were up 17% in his first six months. 17%. i mean, that's an amazing thing. it's great for 401(k)s, great

5:06 am
bunch of them. the president, your dad has made it very clear in the last 36 hours, he's very disappointed with jeff sessions that he recused himself. if he would have known he was going to recuse himself, he would found somebody else for the job. also very disappointed he is not going after the leakers. people taking sensitive information and leaking it to papers and news outlets and stuff like that. but now the fox news alert this morning, the attorney general, maybe he was listening to your dad, but going to announce promptly several leak investigations. that may be music to the ears of those who want to stop the leaks. >> i stay out of the marshal halls for a purpose because quite frankly i don't like a lot of the people there. but it's disheartening for me to watch the pile on with him anonymous russia investigations. there's nothing there. it is the greatest witch hunt of all time.
5:07 am
but then you see the crimes that other people get away with. you look at loretta lynch, she hasn't even subpoenaed. how has loretta lynch not been subpoenaed? where are all of these enraged senators and people calling for her? steve: comey leaking to the new york times. >> you have that, and what about the uranium one. why hasn't anyone investigated the yo uranium one, and the crimes being committed by the clinton foundation and the millions given from saudi arabia. besides from the leakers and everybody else, it seems like this is a one-way pylon, and i think that's my father's frustration. where is it on the other side when there are legitimate crimes over there and everybody has proof about it. you don't have any proof on russia. there is nothing there. but you do have proof that loretta lynch was on a airplane bill clinton while they were investigating his wife. you know, what would actually take there? it can be a one-way street. steve: well, there are four republican congressman and one of them jim jordan joins us earlier, ainsley, to talk about how they want a special counsel to look at no, i do
5:08 am
not all of that stuff. >> and i commend jim for doing that, and i commend them for doing that. we need to do that. ed: not follow up, though, pardon me, on actually following through on what you believe were crimes and doesn't go after loretta lynch and others. do you think the president needs a new attorney general? >> that's up to the president to decide. i mean, that's really up to the president to decide. i am here in new york, they're in dc. i just notice the hypocrisy from the situation, that's what really boars me watching from the outside in. ainsley: he said the liberals all got it together, they stick together. republicans are all wrong. so if he's going to name names tonight on the show, one of the names is lisa murkowski, because he didn't even open this up. he said senator lisa murkowski of the great state of alaska let our country down yesterday. too bad. what's your reaction?
5:09 am
>> it's not just this few republicans who aren't in line. look at the democrats. i mean, obamacare's failing. everybody knows that. premiums have doubled, the system for all intents and purposes, bankrupt. all insurance carriers want nothing to do with obamacare. the doctors signing into obamacare in most cases aren't the best doctors. not getting the cream of the crop. there's so many problems here. you don't mean to tell me that there's not a single democrat on the other side of the aisle that doesn't see a single problem with obamacare that they would like fixed and can't say you know what? i might not agree with you, republicans with everything you want done. but here are some real common sense fixes that whatever we do with health care, we should implement at the same time. steve: they don't want your dad to get a win, eric. >> of course they don't but that's how bad the washington system is. ainsley: it's about politics and not the american people. >> it's insane. it's truly i be sane. and i've said it a million times. i've said it to you guys. they would rather see this country fail than see my father succeed. and that's so bad because it
5:10 am
puts so many people in jeopardy. brian: he said after health care, he wants to move quickly to taxes. talks about bringing the corporate tax rate down as low potentially as 15% and said everyone is criticizing me saying i want tax cuts for the rich and the middle class. even if the the rich have to pay more. if he can get a deal like that, what would it mean for the economy? >> it takes the average person 20 hours to fill out their tax returns. i think you can put that on a postcard and make it super simple. think if you lower taxes, how much money that would infuse into the country. what would that do for corporate america or small businesses. they could hire more people and invest in their businesses, invest in their stores, put capital in whatever they're seeking to do. you know how much money would come from overseas if we had a reasonable tax rate. no one wants to park their money in other countries. they want to park it in the u.s. because it's the safest economy in the world. it has a rule of law. it has everything else. all this funds would come flowing to the. you know that would do to our
5:11 am
markets? i mean, it's fantastic. how many jobs that would create, what it would do for manufacturing and -- i mean, why wouldn't people want that? why wouldn't people sign up for that 100%? steve: sure. what's a reaction, ben, inside the family to the fact that jared kushner, ivanka, your sister's husband was called up to capitol hill and apparently answered every question they asked him two days in a row. does the family feel under siege isn't because i know the president yesterday tweeted out something about next stop, they're going to go after 11-year-old baron trump. >> they attack us for everything. you see what they've done to don, to jarod, you see the nasty things that they say about my pregnant wife, about baron. i've raised $20 million for st. jude, they attack me. it's unthinkable about what did they'll come after us for. we're always under siege, but it is what it is. you're the first family, it's a nasty system. steve: yeah, but for them to go after your wife, that's personal.
5:12 am
>> it's horrible. ainsley: speaking of your wife. last night on stage, tell us what happened because she doesn't -- she is having a baby in a month and a half, and she looks fantastic. i know she's a big runner and stays in shape shape. but tell us what happened. >> yeah. she went out and introduced my father and just killed it. she walked out on stage, the room was electric. i went out there with her for a brief second, and it was just so much fun. ainsley: no one could tell she was pregnant. you made her turn to the side. >> someone yelled from the side she's not pregnant. i said honey, do me a favor. turn sideways. ainsley: how do you feel in a month and a half you're going to meet your baby? >> it's so exciting. i wish he could come out right now, to tell you the truth. ed: try to take name yet? >> best wife in the world. ed: working on a name yet? will you tell fox first? >> yeah. i will. i'll bring him on fox first. steve: are you angling it to

he leaks a memo to a friend in the new york times and with a state objective -- he said this under oath. for a state objective creating momentum under special, and not just any special counsel, his good friend, predecessor bob mueller. holy cow. if we're not going to look into that, we're be the doing our jobs. let's look for the justice department to look into a special counsel. steve: here you have congressman jim jordan one of four house conservatives on the republican side damaged a congress launch an investigation into james comey and loretta lynch. ed: joining us now is one of our great friends, fox and friends weekend cohost abby huntsman. abby: you had so many great guests, i don't know if i belong on the couch this morning. steve: so four u.s. congressman are calling for a special investigator to look into leaks and whatnot from the democrat side. abby: james comey and loretta lynch. you know, i'm thinking there are a lot of people wondering why it's taking this long to launch an investigation.
5:19 am
because if you ask democrats why they have so much going on, they're saying, look, we are just trying to get to the bottom of this. trying to see if there's any wrongdoing here. well, there's still a lot of questions that remain with the handling of hillary clinton's e-mails and the role that james comey plays and loretta lynch. so i think a lot are going to be happy that finally republicans are stepping up to figure out what exactly went wrong here. but we talk a lot about these investigations, and we travel the country talking to the voters. and there are so many investigations going on. you have to wonder what ultimately wins elections? and democrats have gotten really distracted, i think, by some of these investigations. you don't know what they stand for anymore. so republicans, i think have to be careful in terms of focusing on exactly what their agenda is. there's a lot of good going on. the economy's doing well. i think if they can get something done on health care, i think if they can really get something done on tax reform, that should be their focus; right? ainsley: do you think this is what the president means when he says i need more support from republicans, i need people to fight on my behalf? because democrats are going after the trump administration, and there are so many things that democrats
5:20 am
have done that need to be investigated too. >> the list is long. and i think he felt like no one has really come to his side to really defend him. but really, the whole time that he has been in office. where is that framework republicans that president trump has, whether you agree with president trump or not. republicans need to come together. the one thing they say about democrats. they have been united in their anger; right? they have been together on this. republicans haven't. they hadn't really come to president trump's back, and i think a lot of the american people that his that, and they're frustrated by it. >> well, the democratic message has been largely resist. they finally came out with this agenda, better plan, they say they're going to focus on the middle class. we'll see. >> exactly. but i think also with jeff sessions. he's feeling that pressure too. we've got to step up here. we've got to look into a number of things that have some question marks. ainsley: now he's officially going to look into the leaks. we'll have that announcement coming up. ed: thanks for coming in, abb abby.
