1:05 am
that. i have a great regard for director mueller, but i think there are issues here which he is going to have to address because it is going to involve the investigation of what the fbi was doing and not doing at a critical time during our relationship with russia when he was head of the fbi. i'm not calling on him to resign, buy there are issues he is going to have to address and discuss them publicly. heather: we have a lot more coming up on that later in the show so stay with us. meantime this fox news alert for you. north korea possibly making new preparations for war by asimulating attack responses. state media report says north korea citizens are having rare blackout exercises and mass evacuation drills. meanwhile, the u.s. flew a nuclear capable b 2 stealth bomber over the pacific this weekend just days ahead of the president's visit to asia. and a fallen hero killed while serving our country has been identified. 36-year-old army chief warrant officer jacob sims died after a helicopter crash in afghanistan on friday.

1:08 am
but the actions of the texans players before the game, well, that's the topic that people are talking about today. for the first time this season, the texans took a knee during the national anthem, all but 10 of the players were kneeling in front of controversial comments made by team owner bob mcnair. during a recent meeting with other nfl team owners discussing the nfl players protest for racial, social issues during the national anthem, mcnair said we can't have inmates running the prison. after his comments were made public, he issued an apology to his team and the nfl players twice. calling his comments very regretful, he stated i am truly sorry to the players for how this has impacted them and the perception that it has created of me, which could not be further from the truth. even jay-z weighed in t weighe .

heather: welcome back. "fox & friends first" 4:14 in the morning here on the east coast. after two failed presidential runs for president, ohio governor john kasich could be looking to challenge president trump in 2020. a new york magazine claiming that leftover members of kasich's 2016 campaign staff are helping him to decide. this despite telling "fox news sunday" host chris wallace that he is not planning anything. >> i can tell you at this point i'm not plotting or planning anything like that, chris. that's just not where my head is right now. heather: the report claims that kasich doesn't know if he would run as a republican or an independent. and then there is this. actor dwayne "the rock" johnson once again hinting at a possible run in 2020. > you may remember that johnson teased the idea back on "saturday night live" back in may alongside fellow actor tom hanks.
1:16 am
could be an episode of ballers though. well, robert mueller's first indictment could come within hours. but before the charges are filed. red flags are being raised about the credibility of his legal team and more than $66,000 that they donated to democrats. here to weigh in on the impact, this could have on the case, former federal and criminal defense attorney emily cam comp panio. >> thanks for having me. heather: what do you think about this? just off the very top your very thoughts on robert mueller. is he tainted going into this himself? >> well, the investigation team certainly is now, the clear lack of objectivity with his selections here, it's mind blowing and, frankly, the american public deserves to have confidence that there is not a secondary agenda here with these investigators and at least that there is not the appearance of such direct
1:17 am
and repeat donors to barack obama and hillary clinton. $65,000. multiple of which worked in the obama administration directly for the white house as a advisors on criminal procedure and criminal law and even security clearance. at least one of them represented hillary clinton herself in the 2015 lawsuit involving access to her private emails and represent dollars the clinton foundation as well, defending against a racketeering lawsuit. so, again, the optics here, to me, are staggering. heather: it really is mind boggling when you take a look at that let's take a look closely at some of those donations that were made as you said at least nine members of his team. had you james over $24,000. jeanne ray over 12,000. andrew wiseman over 4,000. greg andres over 3,000. andrew goldstein 2,000 and goes on down from there. i mean are there not any other attorneys available to join his team of
1:18 am
investigators? >> exactly. that is another reason why the public faith in this continues to erode. regardless if they are actually objective, the optics are so staggering it leaves us with no choice but to raise questions. it's not being partisan to do so. heather: emily, let me ask you this question. if they donated money, some of them to the dnc, and if we now know that the dnc funded, in part, this dossier, which was part of what led to this russia investigation to begin with that mueller is handling you, isn't there just a huge conflict of interest there? that alone that they donated money that led to this dossier? >> absolutely. there's a tremendous conflict of interest here that depending on, who in fact is, indicted moving forward, can raise that issue in court. it's frankly spoiling the well from the first minute. and note, too that multiple of them in fact all but one worked with and for each other as well and obviously cam rad derly and team work
1:19 am
are important. what is more important is that impartiality and the lack of subjectivity here. all but one were former prosecutors. it's a different mind set and different breed than being an advisor or investigatory attorney where they have a goal first mentality versus being open to where the data leads you. for me, again, from the get-go the optics are poor. heather: definitely seems like open-ended investigation continues to spread which not to mention we didn't have time to get into the leaks, including the leak about this alleged indictment coming down today. so there is something to be said about that as well. emily, thank you very much for joining us this morning. >> thank you. heather: the time now is about 20 minutes after the top of the hour. fox news alert for you. brand new plot just uncovered. isis targeting 4-year-old prince george. the terrifying message that the terror group is sending directly to the royal family. and the pc police are taking their push to erase history

heather: welcome back. and some outrage boiling over as nearly every member of the houston texans takes a knee during sunday's game. this comes after the team owner bob mcnair apologized for saying, quote, we can't have the inmates running the prison. carley shimkus from 24/7 sirius xm 115 here with serious reaction online it is pouring in, right? >> this is a big one.
1:24 am
bob mcnair made that comment while discussing business concerns surrounding the national anthem protest. now he says his words weren't meant to be taken literally and he is sorry, telling the houston chronicle, quote, i told them if i had to do it over again i wouldn't use that expression. but that apology did not calm tensions among many texans players who retaliated as you saw by taking a knee during the national anthem. still, many fans expressing their disapproval on social media. joe says let me get this right, the players are disrespecting the national anthem because of something stupid the owner said? seems childish at best. david on twitter writes most houston, texans didn't stand for the anthem today and lost. should have spent more time practicing and less time protesting. if they are unhappy with their employer they can exercise their right to quit oh, wait, their millions are more important than the movement. now, many players, h heather,
1:25 am
say they want to have a new meeting with owners, this one they want to have collin kaepernick included in. heather: well, he was invited to the last one from what i understand. he just didn't show. all right. so, george washington's church, he attended this church for two decades but they plan to rip out his memorial because they think it may make some of the worshipers feel unsafe? >> that's right. if you remember, this is something that the president expressed concern might happen. take a listen. >> george washington was a slave owner. was george washington a slave owner? so, will george washington now lose his status? are we going to take down -- excuse me, are we going to take down -- are we going to take down statues to george washington? >> christ church in alexandria, virginia, say they are going to take down that george washington plaque and one also honoring robert e. lee saying the plaques in our sanctuary makes some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome.
1:26 am
some visitors and guests who worship with us choose not to return because they receive an unintended message from the prominent presence of the plaques. many others though don't see the point. marianne says awful, just visited this church last month only because washington attended. u.s. history being rewritten because people can't handle it. this is an ongoing debate that we see, heather, we will continue. heather: we will talk more about that in the 5:00 a.m. hour of "fox & friends," too. see you later. the time is now 26 minutes after the top of the hour. hillary clinton issuing a call to arms against president trump. telling democrats to resist all the way through 2020. >> i hope you still got a lot of fight left in you.

1:31 am
that political crisis continues in spain. yesterday we saw hundreds of thousands of people demonstrating in barcelona in favor of united country falling that declaration of independence by the catalonian parliament on friday. now, the latest polls are interesting. they show a small majority of catalonians oppose independence and the spanish government has called for fresh regional elections to be held in december. the question now, is whether the former catalonian leader will continue to defy central government and show up for work today. he was dismissed by the spanish prime minister. spanish authorities say he will be eligible to stand in those elections, as long as he is not arrested for breaking the law. now, in other news, according to british tabloid newspaper, isis has made a specific threat to the royal heir prince george, the paper says it discovered these threatening messages online there have been seller isis inspired attacks in the u.k. recently and the threat level to the general public remains at severe. but, despite that heightened

anticipation this morning await special announcement from special counsel robert mueller. expecting indictment in russia probe. this comes as top republicans call the investigation into question over alleged leaks. griff jenkins is live for us in washington, d.c. so, griff, it is going to be a busy news day no doubt with all of this going on. >> that's right, heather. there is intense speculation we could see individuals taken into custody as soon as if the report leaks out on the investigation are true. the grand jury has approved these first charges. and while we have no idea who will be charged or even what those charges will be we have reported on some of the targets of mueller's investigation. it could be folks like mike flynn, there you see the former national security advisor or paul manafort, the campaign chairman. whoever it is congressman trey gowdy former prosecutor himself says is he frustrated that this has leaked out. >> we don't know who is being charged. we don't know what they are being charged for. the only conversation i had
1:36 am
with robert mueller it was stressing to him the importance of cutting out the leaks with respect to serious investigation. make no mistake, disclosing grand jury material is violation of the law. >> congressman gowdy who also chairs the government oversight, government reform committee says he would like to know more also about that dossier and ties to both between russia and hillary clinton and the democrats. heather? heather: specifically. so people sitting on mueller's team. we talked about that just a short time ago. over $66,000 amongst nightbeat nine of them for the dnc for hillary clinton and president obama and his campaign as well. so, what is the reaction so far from the white house? >> well, this may surprise you, but the president took to twitter and unleashed a storm, a series of five tweets according to lack of investigation between hillary and the democrats and russia saying at one point in one of those tweets, quote: there is so much guilt by democrats, clinton,and now the facts
1:37 am
are pouring out, do something. so the president not sitting still. although ty cobb, the attorney at the white house said his twitter storm was not related to the leaks of the first charges coming out of mueller's investigation. heather: all right. mueller monday had has come. thank you so much, griff, we appreciate it have a great day. it's going to be a busy one. hillary clinton spent her weekend meantime rallying the resistance, calling on democrats to unite against president trump. >> these days as a person i'm okay, but as an american i am really concerned. i hope you still got a lot of fight left in you. cheers] because we have some tough battles ahead. >> but is her call to arms actually bringing the republican party closer together? here to debate is former
1:38 am
democratic ohio senator capri and politics editor ron meyer. thank you both for joining us on this monday. >> good morning. heather: appreciate having you both here. capri, your thoughts on, this is this going to have the opposite reaction than what hillary clinton wants? >> you know, it's possible. let's also put this in context. the human rights campaign which is what hillary clinton was speaking at, is not just a democratic organization. it's an lbgt advocacy organization nationwide. but obviously her message was clear that, you know, we need to come together and continue to exist. way bring republicans together, look, she is still litigating the election, she is not getting over it. it's the old guard. you know, and you know from, that perspective, you know, republicans may be coming together. i think more importantly, the democrats need to come together and have a real seed change.
1:39 am
while we all respect hillary clinton because of her, you know, being the first woman to be nominated for a major political party, at the same time, we need to get past, you know, these 70-year-olds that are leading our party and brings in some new blood and focus on the economy. heather: ron it, does seem to be that maybe the democratic party hasn't learned that yet because we still have hillary clinton out there, you know, asking what happened or at least coming up with a lot of different reasons. >> yeah. no kidding. she is speaking at the human rights campaign despite her husband, you know, having don't ask, don't tell and signing the defense of marriage act. going to an organization that opposed her husband's presidency and she recently came to their defense a couple years ago. if hillary clinton is going to be the person who leads the democratic party in this resistance, trump is going to be happy and republicans are going to be happy. look at what happened in 2016.
1:40 am
donald trump, who ran a really a bare bones campaign beat one of the worst candidates in history. i think republicans are fine repeating this effort. but the problem is i think most americans want to be focused on 2017. not reliving the 2016 election. i think that's the democrats' fundamental problem. they are stuck in 2016, not 2017. >> what most people want to focus on, capri are jobs and getting some legislation passed. tax reform. healthcare reform. all of that type of thing. >> absolutely. you know, i think that democrats would really benefit from leading and actually saying, you know, we are the adults in the room. we want to come together with republicans, you know, put party politics aside and focus on the american people. focus on things like jobs and tax reform and not worry, about you know, gotcha situations and trying to really say we're going to just oppose everything the republicans do because we want to be on destructionists. that's not what the american people want. they want people to come together for solutions.
1:41 am
democrats and republicans alike. i think the american public is frustrated and rightfully so. this town washington and capitol hill were broken because it's been too divisive for too long. heather: ron, not just talking about democrats and what can bring them together, republicans themselves, what can possibly bring them together? >> well, we definitely -- honestly, i think this is the one democrat i have heard say that we need to have cross party bypass on tax reform and come together on jobs. we need more people like that on the hill, whether it's democrats or republicans. you saw some republicans who are resisting tax reform. also some legitimate questions about the state and local taxes and some of these other things. but, overall, i mean, republicans and democrats need to unite sand say, listen, would if we want the economy to continue to grey not only continue to grow but empower a larger group of people we need significant tax reforms. that's what trump needs to be focused on in tweets and
1:42 am
messaging. heather: i appreciate you both joining us and both good points this morning. thank you. >> thank you, s see you. heather: taking center stage as republicans are set to reveal their historic overhaul this week. >> the more individuals can invest their own money, the better off we are in the long-term. heather: you are going to want to hear this exactly what it means for your 401(k) is up next. ♪ ♪ my name is jeff sheldon,
