tv   Special Report With Bret Baier  FOX News  September 14, 2017 3:00pm-4:00pm PDT

3:00 pm
success. space x has pulled off more than a dozen booster landings including one last week in florida. the company is working towards bringing astronauts to space. i am trace gallagher inverse shepard smith. "special report" starts now. >> bret: this is a fox news alert. i am bret baier, coming to you from fox news world headquarters in new york. serious questions about how and why the obama administration's national security advisor was able to get the names of trump transition team members under surveillance. first, deal or no deal. a public spat between the president and the top democrats over what if anything they have agreed to about young illegal immigrants and tougher border security. we begin with kevin corke starting us off. good evening. >> good evening. deal or no deal indeed.
3:01 pm
announcing today the white house and democrats were close to a deal on daca. the president made certain to emphasize no deal would happen without increased border security and ultimately a border wall between the u.s. and mexico. even the hint of a possible deal on daca set off alarm bells among conservatives. >> we'll only do it if we get extreme security, if we get not only surveillance but everything that goes along with surveillance. and ultimately we have to have the wall. if we don't have a wall, we are doing nothing. >> even after the president in florida strongly emphasized a border wall between the u.s. and mexico would be built, word of a possible deal with democrats on daca had long since sparked a major political firestorm in washington. it began late last night when the associated press reported democrats had announced a deal with the president that would include border security but no wall. that led to an avalanche of tweets from leading conservatives accusing the president of caving on his
3:02 pm
promise to fight illegal immigration. punctuated by iowa republican congressman steve king since deleted tweet that read "if ap is correct, trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable and dissolution to be on repair. no promises credible." this morning, the president suggested the ap got it wrong writing: "no deal was made last night on daca. massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. would be subject to vote." he seemed to buoy hope among democrats that a compromise could be in the offing, tweetin tweeting: "does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? really!" on capitol hill, leaders from both sides had differing views on how the conversation played out on daca. last night's white house gathering. democrats seem to revel in the g.o.p.'s intraparty fight. >> details will matter.
3:03 pm
but it was a very, very positive step for the president to commit to daca protections without insisting on the inclusion of or even a debate about the border wall. >> there is no agreement. the president and chief of staff called me today to discuss what was discussed. it was a discussion, not agreement or negotiation. >> we will break the cycle of amnesty and illegal immigration. we will break the cycle. there will be no amnesty. >> then candidate donald trump made the border while his top priority, a promise he is touted repeatedly since becoming president. to the delight of his many supporters. a promise he acknowledged today could be delayed but not denied. >> there will be no amnesty. >> as you can imagine, white house officials are coming out strongly tonight.
3:04 pm
they insist any discussion about dreamers or daca, border security or the wall are all going to be have to be fleshed out by lawmakers making conversations like last night's a prelude for what lies ahead. >> bret: kevin corke. thank you. more on this in a moment. national security advisor for then president obama is explaining why she felt it was necessary to learn the names of trump advisors who were present at a meeting with the middle eastern diplomat lace -- late t year. many are saying susan rice crossed the line and that there's more to the story. here's catherine herridge. >> senior capitol hill soares told fox news susan rice offered "vast and varied explanations" for requesting the names of trump transition team members. returning from florida, president trump said the
3:05 pm
so-called unmasking of his team was wrong. >> what she did was wrong. we've been saying that. >> the source said rice told lawmakers she was bothered by a meeting reportedly between jared kushner, steve bannon, incoming national security advisor mike flynn, and the united arab emirates crown prince. rice said they had asked for a meeting with president obama and canceled. then they came to see the trump team. a former intelligence official disputed the characterization. there was no immediate comment from the united arab emirates embassy. rice's explanation appears to back up devin nunes' allegations that the names were improperly revealed. in an interview, rice denied knowledge. >> i know nothing about this.
3:06 pm
i was surprised to see reports from chairman nunes on that. >> in an interview on msnbc, rice insisted unmasking requests were aboveboard. >> the allegations that somehow obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes, that's false. >> after devin nunes issued subpoenas by rice, john brennan and samantha power who allegedly made hundreds, devin nunes wrote to dan coats that the possible motivation was to "achieve partisan political purposes. multiple sources say they found rice's explanation dubious. the obama national security team and former attorney general lynch. >> bret: thank you.
3:07 pm
let's get the latest on that investigation that ended with james comey exonerating hillary clinton last july. >> speaking to fox, lindsey graham threatened to subpoena the former fbi director. >> there is so much to be determined. comey needs to come back. what was his real reason for clearing hillary clinton? had he made up his mind before he even talked to her? >> i ask you yes or no. will you subpoena him question mexico i would. >> one source told fox they would like to see comey come back before the end of october. >> bret: harvard is getting a lot of heat for hiring chelsea manning. >> u.s. army soldier turned felon who gave wikileaks thousands of classified records will take on a roll at harvard's
3:08 pm
john f. kennedy school of government according to their website. she speaks on the social, technological, economic ramifications of artificial intelligence. as a trans woman, she advocates for queer and transgender right rights. >> bret: thank you. let's talk about the unmasking issue and the potential daca deal with judge andrew napolitano. bill mcgurn. thanks for being here. the unmasking thing. not a lot of coverage. it's a big story. >> it's a huge story, consistent with the president's allegations and the unmasking seems to have occurred at about the same time portions of the transcript of a
3:09 pm
telephone conversation between mike flynn, president-elect donald trump's national security advisor and vladimir kislyak. that's almost the linchpin that started the ball rolling to what's going on between the russians and the trump people. on top of that, i don't want to bury the lead. the lead is susan rice new and presumably president obama knew that president-elect trump and his people were being surveilled in trump tower before he was president. >> a lot of people washington owed devin nunes an apology. when he came out with the charge that senior obama officials were unmasking members of the trump campaign, he was treated as a kook and he's been proved right. susan rice said she knew nothing
3:10 pm
about it, nothing. now she is saying it's because she was interested -- she. you get classified reports with names redacted. you pretty much know this is going to be a trump campaign official. you don't know which one it is when you get it, but this is unmasking. the idea they are going to let her off the hook for this flimsy answer in the american people have to ask, are we comfortable with these facts of senior people in one administration looking in on people in the incoming administration. >> they should be a subject matter first -- for special col robert mueller. trying to make it look like there was involvement. >> bret: lawmakers are calling for the investigation to
3:11 pm
continue. i want to turn to the daca deal, no deal, whatever it is. the democrats believe they have the president agreeing to this. steve bannon on "60 minutes" over the weekend. >> i am worried about losing the house because of daca. my fear is with the six months downrange, if we have another huge -- if this goes all the way down to its logical conclusion in february and march, it will be a civil war inside the republican party that will be every bit as vitriolic as 2013. to me, doing that in the springboard of primary season for 2018 is extremely unwise. >> bret: it's not maybe full-blown civil war but ann coulter is not holding back. >> i think the president behaved sensibly. the first he did right is return the issue to congress. this was an unconstitutional use of executive authority.
3:12 pm
even president obama knows that because he is a former constitutional law professor who said he didn't have the power before he exerted it. i think a lot of people are unrealistic. we can have tighter border security, a wall, all sorts of things. unrealistic to expect we are going to expel these people who came here as children, didn't make the decision themselves and are now integrated in different parts. the question is always what's the trade-off? what will the president get for that in congress? >> bret: there's a lot of people on the right to are invested in this immigration issue talking about this but they are are also people saying this president is doing deals, and that's not a bad thing. >> i was originally angry when jeff sessions made the announcement. i thought the timing was terrible. i thought it would impair the ability of daca people here, young adults who came as
3:13 pm
children. fearful of seeking government aid in a moment of life and death in houston. but i think the president was up to something. i think the timing was significant. i think he did this for the reason you articulated. the fifth circuit court of appeals has found it unconstitutional, basically saying you want these people who are americanized to stay here. i want something in return. that's what he's going to try to get. >> bret: we will see where it goes. thank you. president trump says the disaster from hurricane irma could've been much worse. the president was in southwest florida today to get a firsthand look at damage from the second major hurricane to hit this country in two weeks. mike tobin was there and has the story. >> president trump lending a hand during a visit to the hard-hit naples the state park today. >> don't forget a sandwich. >> promising the full support of the administration. >> we are there for you 100%. i'll be back here numerous time
3:14 pm
times. >> across town at another trailer park, folks are hoping the promises come their way. >> they didn't say nothing to us. they put the red tags on and laughed. >> many trailers marked with tags left by officials notifying them their homes have been condemned. >> this is our home. where are we going to be going? >> they say the only aid they received came from the first baptist church and a local furniture store. many parts of the state are still in need of the basics. the florida department of health urged residents to boil water in dozens of counties. 2.5 million floridians are waiting for electricity. >> your power is going on as we speak. it's going way ahead of schedule, weeks ahead of schedule. much of it, most of it outside the keys where we have a special
3:15 pm
problem but we are working hard. >> 75% of homes without power in the keys. today a florida power & light official warned customers to wait could last at least another week. >> we are going into neighborhoods and in some cases house by house. the last part of the restoration is the hardest part. if it's manual, it's time-consuming. >> some without electricity are society's most vulnerable. a day after eight patients at a rehabilitation center died amid the loss of air-conditioning. >> i am extremely upset. words, there are no words. >> 64 nursing ups across the state are still without power prompting evacuations like you're at the williamsburg landing nursing home located north of fort lauderdale. detectives on the scene at the rehabilitation center in hollywood hills executed a search warrant. >> we are looking into the temperature inside the facility,
3:16 pm
the staffing inside the facility. and all of the conditions inside the facility. >> overall, trump saying the death toll is unfortunate but smaller than expectations. >> it was a small number. people thought thousands and thousands of people they have their lives. >> things are improving. florida power & light says power has been restored to all critical hospitals in the state. at the staging area, power poles waiting to be off-loaded, replacing those stamped by the storm. little comfort to the customers in collier county opening that the visit of the president will speed things up. >> bret: mike tobin, thanks. this is a fox news alert. south korea's media services north korea has just fired off another missile believed to be

>> bret: this is a fox news alert. north korea has fired off another missile headed toward japan. japanese government saying it went over japan into the pacific. let's go to greg palkot in seoul, south korea, . >> we are getting information from a variety of sources. it appears this projectile, this missile launched from the area around pyongyang, the capital of north korea, a little bit before 7:00 a.m. local time. that would be about a half an hour ago. it flew eastward, and by all accounts, and crossed the sea of japan and crossed the hokkaido islands, the northern island of the archipelago of japan. this is the second time this sort of trajectory has occurred with missiles coming from
3:39 pm
north korea in recent weeks. it has alarmed japan. it has called individual citizens to go to shelters. we have seen that happen before in the last blast. we do not know whether this is an intermediate blast, an intercontinental ballistic missile. there was some speculation a flattened trajectory launch could be made from north korea. it would have to fly over japan to reach its goal. if it was flattened, a launching of a missile, it could go deeper into the pacific. we are waiting on that now. all of this is happening while north korea, very busy with its own rhetoric, its own talking not just about the united states but about japan during the day. let's take a listen to what's been said today.
3:40 pm
>> kim jong un's regime launched more rhetoric. state media saying pyongyang ought to use its nuclear weapons to reduce the u.s. to ashes and darkness. u.s. ally japan should be sunken into the sea. japanese prime minister abe on a visit to india stood his ground. >> translator: the whole of the international community must implement the security council resolution, and forced north korea to change his policy. >> secretary of state tillerson in london also promoted the u.n. resolution. he called on north korea ally china to do more. >> i am hopeful china, a great country, a world power, will decide on their own and we'll take it upon themselves to use that very powerful tool of oil supply to persuade north korea to reconsider its current path
3:41 pm
towards weapons development. >> in seoul, some are more pessimistic. >> i don't think there's anyway to stop them now. no way. >> leading analyst thinks the north will resist sanctions. >> they want to get to the point where they have a sufficient number of their into intercontinental ballistic missiles destroying a sufficient number of american citizens. >> talking there about north korea building up an arsenal of intercontinental ballistic missiles that could hit the united states. we don't know exactly what this missile was that was launched from pyongyang in the direction of japan over that come into the pacific. it's part of this ongoing very active missile testing program we've seen from north korea
3:42 pm
coupled with the test a short while ago of a nuclear device. it's an arsenal that's beginning to be reckoned with. >> bret: the last missile test was late august and classified as an intermediate range ballistic missile flying over japan, that same area, that island you mentioned, hokkaido island. there were u.s. marines training on the island at the time when the missile flew over. they were not in danger, we were told by the pentagon. i want to ask about south korea's reaction and if their response is changed in recent days as north korea has become more aggressive. >> japan and south korea have become more aggressive towards this. we heard from japanese minister abe today demanding the u.n. security council resolution be implemented, criticizing some very strong rhetoric we had heard talking about japan
3:43 pm
being sunk into the sea this morning on state media. may be a hint of what was to come, just about 24 hours later. japan getting tougher. south korea getting tougher. we have been watching the government here much more saber rattling, more military exercises. they realize they have a regional defense issue they are dealing with just as the u.s. deals with a longer-range threat. >> bret: greg palkot live in south korea on this breaking news that a north korean missile launch. thank you. we will have our panel, three of the "the five" joint after the break ey would last them. how long do you think we'll keep -- oooooohhh! you stopped! you're gonna leave me back here at year 9? how did this happen? it turned out, a lot of people fell short, of even the average length of retirement.

>> we are working on a plan for daca. >> the president were to support enshrining the daca protections into law. >> i trust the president is sincere. >> it's clear what leader pelosi and i put out last night was accurate. >> the wall is going to be buil built. >> we put the bill on the floor, it would win. >> ryan and mcconnell agree on daca. we are on board. >> bret: deal or no deal, the daca deal. what exactly was agreed to or not agreed to. it has fired up conservatives, and culture among them tweeting "at this point, who doesn't want trump impeached. if we are not getting a wall, i would prefer president pence. let's tell real donald trump
3:48 pm
there was a hurricane at the border. maybe he will rush down and build a wall." let's bring in the panel. we have three of "the five." dana perino, juan williams, kimberly guilfoyle. >> very interesting. could you have predicted this? when you look at the fact pattern and the narrative, president trump has had a difficult time with majorities in the house and senate being able to get anything done. budget, immigration. he has needed to reach across the lines and try to make some concessions and this is what a business person does. not just a pure politician, to try to work with the other side. that being said, i don't think it's inconsistent with how i know him to be politically prior to running for president. but for sure the hard-core trump supporters and their conservatives are disappointed because they think it's a step
3:49 pm
away from campaign promises and they feel the wall is in jeopardy. can they trust him on that, especially now his latest salt-and-pepper shakers are schumer and pelosi. >> bret: you have to look at the c-span coverage of the senate floor. you can always pick up a little bit. today you had chuck schumer talking about his new friend. >> he likes me, anyway. >> bret: make us more productive too. nancy pelosi said he talked new york to donald trump. >> let's make a deal. i think it would make them more
3:50 pm
productive. i think that was revealing. i think you see schumer sees there's something in it for the democrats but two, for congress that hasn't gotten much done in terms of major legislative results. the contrary point is what happens among republicans. steve king, the iowa congressman, said basically the president risks blowing up his base. you think about that base, about 35%, 40%. you think about the high retention of republican support for the president. if that starts to deteriorate, if you get the ann coulter voices, the right wing talk radio voices pulling away from this president, that could creator what is not a high level of support for him. >> bret: in the election, he said i could shoot somebody on fifth avenue in my base would stay with me. the wall and the daca deal. >> it might've been true about shooting somebody but maybe not the wall. what we are talking about his
3:51 pm
permanent legal status for people brought here under no concept of their own because they were children with enforced border security and enforcement. this is something that both congressional party leaderships agree with. the majority of the american people agree and the majority of republicans agree with it. i have always maintained he could be the president that could get a comprehensive immigration bill done. they are already able to say there's progress made on the wall. he talked about fencing today. the actual physical structure, with the big beautiful gates, probably not. it's not that practical. once the shock wears off that he's -- he might not do the wall right away, i think there's nowhere for them to go. but if ryan and mcconnell had suggested this idea, they would've been raked over the coals. president trump needs to protect them somewhat because they got cut out of the deal last night but they are expected to deliver

the votes on the floor. >> bret: clearly he likes the dealmaking buried indications the american people kind of like it. >> i think it's a huge opportunity for him to do that, to coalesce both sides and show we can get things done. that's what he promised. he needs to put wins on the board. it's important to the republican feels they are included. making the mention of ryan and mcconnell is important and he's going to need her help. >> bret: the unmasking story is a big story. i want to turn to the breaking news. north korea firing another missile that flew over japan today. we have heard so much from this administration, this president, about what's going to happen if these threats continue. now we are at a tipping point where they keep on firing these missiles. >> we have the u.n. sanctions. the u.n. security council voted unanimously, including china, a

critical player, to support increased sanctions on north korea including limiting the transit of oil and other supplies and possibly also cutting off the revenue they get from selling textiles around the world. this is thought to have put the north korean back on their heels because the sanctions, they don't have a strong economy and this would kill their economy. to the contrary, the idea that they are shooting off missiles today, it's -- i don't think alarm is sufficiently strong. the reaction in south korea. they've got what was a liberal president trying to downplay the militarization effort. suddenly he is on high military alert and south korea, increasing the use and preparations for employing or deploying missiles against north korea. you imagine what the japanese are feeling. they are ready. after world war ii, a nonnuclear state. they are making the insistence
3:54 pm
they have to protect themselves. this is boiling over. >> bret: the pentagon confirming that north korea did fire a missile. they are saying this reached a height of 480 miles, flew 2300 miles out over japan. that's significant. the administration is saying u.n. sanctions didn't go far enough. they were happy to get the unanimous vote but they were a bit watered down. this was the treasury secretary yesterday. >> i worked on an executive order that's ready if the president wants to use it. we can stop trade with any country that does business with north korea. we are going to be careful in using these tools, but the president is committed. we will use economic sanctions to bring north korea to the table. >> bret: you are saying stopping trade with china? >> they need the sticks to get
3:55 pm
people to the table. if we have to accept north korea's nuclear power, then is the next step to get them to the table. what do you talk about at that point? president trump will have a chance to gap with the world behind him about this nuclear threat because next week when they they, the leaders come to the united nations general simile meeting. he will have its first chance to address the world on that stage and i think it has to be priority number one. i do feel like this administration is having to deal with the fact that we now have a nuclear capable north korea. >> bret: thank you for being here. or having me. >> in our studio. >> bret: we will see you at 9:00 p.m. eastern for "the five." if you think eight is enough, try 70.
