♪ [national anthem] >> the state department released a new batch of emails from weiner's laptop. >> there were several laptop. there were several emails on the laptop he shared with abedin that had classified information. >> you have to wonder why it was the fbi and the justice department let huma abedin off the hook. they left this on equivalent of a park bench. >> about the agenda ahead. >> democrats have been told and fully understand there can be no daca without the desperately needed wall at the southern border. >> we do need to secure our border. this idea that we are only going to do the dream act and nothing else is just all political theater. >> happy new year.
3:01 am
>> new year's eve organizers test dropped confetti friday. the new york police department is taking extra measures to protect times square to terror attack in new york city. >> president told the coast guard today the job is yours. >> 16,000 people. unheard of. so i just want to thank you. the coast guard is fantastic. ♪ ♪ pete: no you be not in a disco club it's 6:00 a.m. in manhattan on "fox & friends." it's a party as you can see. rachel: it's a party. pete: look who we have peter doocy. rachel campos-duffy. i feel like you should be sitting here. this is the doocy seat. pete: it's pete hegseth's seat today. pete: only on the weekend
3:02 am
temporarily. your family is still down hanging out and you decided to hang with us. pete: they are. pete: it's national bacon day. >> bacon. rachel: national holiday for pete. rachel: i saw the piles of bacon and i thought of you. pete: if you are waking up this saturday morning find bacon. you know how the first person gets up and makes bacon and the whole house smells like bacon. peter peter i have a question how long national bacon day has been going. pete: started by the national industry. emails made public very close to the campaign huma abedin. peter: these work related
3:03 am
emails were found on a laptop that belonged to huma abedin. >> we are still going through the 2,000 emails released by the state department yesterday. can i tell you already at least four of those emails are marked classified. these emails were either sent or received by hillary clinton's top aide huma abedin and disooferred by fbi agents that personal laptop that abedin shared with her husband anthony weiner. many were related to scheduling upcoming meetings with foreign leaders. those that have been marked classified. important to note they were marked classified after they were sent heavily redacted. including this one november 2010 that includes call notes to help clinton through a discussion with saudi arabia foreign minister about the use of diplomatic cables by wikileaks. the note suggests clinton say i deeply regret the likely upcoming wikileaks
3:04 am
disclosure. i seek your help inspect preventing wikileaks undermining our national interest. these emails were released following a request by judicial watch. the emails show further investigation needs to be done. >> the fact that classified information from clinton and abedin on weiner's laptop shows the urgent need for a criminal investigation. a serious one by the justice department. >> it is important to note that a former fbi director james comey was asked about these emails this past summer in an appearance on capitol hill. and at the time he said the bureau did not believe that abedin was aware of what she was doing and suggested like, with hillary clinton, it was simply a case of an extreme lack of carelessness. back to y'all. pete: exactly. a extreme lack of care. some would say grossly negligent. of course those words were changed. again, more evidence and we wouldn't know about it if anthony weiner had not been investigated for all the.
3:05 am
rachel: for being a sexual predator. pete: his misconduct as well. hillary clinton feels like that's why she is not in the white house today. a lot of us step back even more evidence there was indeed a double standard. rachel: not the only double standard. we also know that peter strzok, the fbi investigator who we learned from his emails had, you know, anti-trump bias, a pro-hillary bias who interviewed michael flynn also interviewed huma mills -- huma abedin and cheryl mills. pete: that's a great point. rachel: both of them lied to peter strzok in that interview and said they didn't know that there was even a server to begin with. how was huma abedin treated? how was peter film treated. lying to the fbi is bad no matter how are. peter: you talk about a standard point. president trump has been trying to make the point the duong is stacked with a bunch of democrats trying to help the clintons and take down the president.
3:06 am
now there are new emails we are seeing. rachel: that's a double standard. pete: they were following documents to anthony weiner's campaign account. call sheets to the saudi foreign minister. emails about debbie wasserman schultz being the head of the dnc. this was email grab bag for anything. peter: imagine if any one of those things was on -- who was trump's right-hand man during the campaign if it was found on jared kushner's blackberry. pete: name the amount of outrage. jonathan turley was on the network earlier towering about democrats and bob mueller and the double standard. take a listen. >> just as i said that people should let mueller finish his work, i also think it's strange for democrats to say oh, don't investigate this, the election is over, except, of course, for the trump election. so, i don't get why people are bothered by congress to exercise authority to
3:07 am
investigate this. the clinton staff got an enormous amount of deference. deals were made to destroy computers. immunity deals. just as a condition of turning over government property. none of that really makes a lot of sense. now, in the end, was there a crime? probably not, but, once again, the public has a right to answers has to how its government performed. pete: crime might be the sense that so many americans have that special treatment is given to those with privilege and anyone else, as we have said before. anyone else in the military, elsewhere who did that would get friday. peter: look at david petraeus two years probation and $100,000 fine. pete: exactly. that's how it goes. one investigation into the emails and then you have got of course the russia probe ongoing. rachel: that's right. matthew gatz a representative out of florida says maybe it's time that we wrap this up. that we move on from this investigation because we are seeing that there is so much bias and there is no there
3:08 am
there on the collusion with russia. here is what he has to say? >> well, the con dex of this investigation demonstrates a tremendous amount of bias. if you look at justth time line, robert mueller was interviewing, wanting to get his old job back as the head of the fbi on the 16th of may. rod rosenstein then walked him out of that interview and within 24 hours rosen stein appoints mueller to go and investigate the president. mueller then populates his team with people who dislike the president. over half of them gave money to barack obama, hillary clinton, or both. and the number two person in this investigation, mr. weissmann, actually attended hillary clinton's non-victory party. so there are a lot of things that evidence bias to me. what's most important about president trump's interview these let actions of an innocent man. he goes on the record on a recording to say no collusion, ask your questions. the president demonstrated his innocence. it's time to wrap this up so
3:09 am
it doesn't become a dampening future we could have in 2018 in this country. peter: you want wonder how bad they want to wrap up the mueller probe and start a second into the russia probe. these republicans on the hill want to take control. they have their own investigation into special counsel goes away the more people will be paying attention to what they are doing at their hearing. pete: that's a good point. it also means the democrats have completely lost their narrative which they have run on since resisting election day that this is not a legitimate presidency. it was collusion with the russians. if the investigation wraps up, that goes away two. competing investigations with a lot at stake. we will be following that a lot feels like in some ways the rear view mirror. president trump has been talking about is the future. he tweeted this yesterday talking about potential deals and the wall. what might be coming next. he tweeted the democrats have been told and fully understanding that there can be no daca without the
3:10 am
desperately needed wall at the southern border and an end to horrible chain migration and ridiculous lottery system of immigration, et cetera. we must protect our country at all costs. there is a lot of questions about what will capitol hill do with this. the democrats are obsessed with daca and getting the deal there. the president is standing firm it looks like. rachel: they want daca with nothing attached to it. i think president trump is contact isly wher is exactly whe american people are. they say they want something to be done with daca kids -- adults. they are much older than that they don't want this to happen again. they have want this problem to be solved so that we don't have another wave of them. i think what happened was that the electricit electorate n hearing immigration reform, they wanted immigration reform but they also wanted the border secured and they didn't believe that the republicans in maury were going to do it. donald trump comes along.
3:11 am
they hear that tough rhetoric, they see he is willing to withstand a lot of the attacks that would make most politician goes into a fetal position which is racism. pete: the politician position. rachel: i think he is going to follow through with his promise. peter: seems like a squeeze is coming in the next couple weeks. there is another deadline to shut down the government on january 19th. the democrats have been saying for years, we want or for months, we want daca fixed by the end of 2017. now, nancy pelosi says well, we want it fixed but by, you know, january. january count as the end of the year. they can use this as leverage. republicans are l. say please help us keep the government. in democrats will say how about clean daca. pete: pelosi told them it would be done by the end of the year. they dothey don't have levers of power. peter: remember only one vote majority in the senate now and jeff flake is
3:12 am
somebody who says there has to be a daca fix. pete: there is a big meeting on wednesday could determine the future of this as legislation moves forward but we have headlines. rachel: turning to your headlines, an officer is shot and wounded in ambush attack overnight. los angeles police say a female cop was conducting traffic stops when multiple rounds were fired in her direction. she was rushed to the hospital after suffering a gunshot wound to the thigh. she is in stable condition. a 28-year-old suspect was arrested at the scene. authorities say there may be other suspects at large. now horrifying scenes are unfolding in the middle of the work day. employees fleeing from gunfire at prominent california law firm where police say attorneys shot and killed a colleague injuring another before killing himself. the shooter was reportedly just fired from the firm. and in houston, investigators believe a former auto shop worker killed two exco-workers before turning the gun on
3:13 am
himselfself. unclear what led to either shooting. the u.s. sending a warning to iran as thousands in the country protest the government. president trump tweeting his support for protesters as iranian regime cracks down on some of them. he writes, quote: many reports of peaceful protests by iranian citizens fed up with the regime's corruption and its squandering of the nation's wealth to fund terrorism abroad. iranian government should respect their people's rights including the right to express themselves. the world is watching. pete: a lot of criticism on the obama administration for not similar unrest. christians undersiege by isis around the world. at least 10 dead in the terror group's latest attack. how do we stop the carnage. peter: she was supposed to be testing drugs from criminals. thousands could be thrown out because this lab worker got high on the evidence. rachel: wow.

3:16 am
pete: welcome back, isis ramping up its rah tacks on christians around the world. at least 10 people were killed when gunmen opened fire outside a coptic christian church in egypt. the late nest a string of similar attacks carried out
3:17 am
by isis and their affiliates. rachel: joining us now is station chief who served in moscow, and pakistan. good morning. >> good morning. pete: first of all, talk about this particular attack. we know christians have been under siege in the middle east and in egypt recently. tell us about this development. isis has taken responsibility. >> right. i think egypt's in many ways is a microcosm of what we are seeing throughout the middle east and in south asia. the coptic christians have been targeted by isis. particularly over the past couple years with significant attacks. isis is at war with the government of egypt in the sinai and on the border of egypt and in libya. and isis wants to strike back at what they consider a soft target: they want to try to spark some ethnic violence. they want to demonstrate that the government of egypt and their president el-sisi is not capable of protecting his population. rachel: is this a harbinger
3:18 am
of what we could see. we have seen attacks on christian markets and churches. is that something we should be worried about this season right now? >> well, we should be very, very, i would say, alert to that possibility. we know that isis has mounted a propaganda effort, trying to incite their followers to launch attacks during the christmas season. whereas in the past, we tracked al qaeda through their finances and communications because they required some command and control over individuals. they were trying to direct, to mount attacks in this day and age, isis is trying to inspire their followers. and they are definitely trying to inspire them to launch attacks against christians. pete: daniel, recently we heard good news about the amount of territory taken back from isis. iraq and syria. dismantled. brand, unfortunately not gone. somewhat status of isis and then particularly thousand pertains to their targeting of christians as well? >> well, you know, first of all, isis has done a tremendous amount of damage
3:19 am
in what was their former so-called caliphate in iraq and syria. i served in iraq. and iraq is a place with lots of extraordinary christian history there are no more christians left in second largest city of mosul. significant amount of damage has been done. cryptions have been killed or have fled the reasonable. what isis is doing now, having lost much of their geographic formerly ungoverned space is that they are used cyberspace to encourage their followers. much of the past history of attacks is just fodder for them to encourage their followers to mount attacks worldwide. they are trying to make this into a war between muslims, between islam and the west when, in fact, really isis and al qaeda are at war with islam themselves. pete: sure. rachel: it's amazing. used to be if you wanted to hear about christian persian cushion and you pick up a book and find out about first century christians it's happening in realtime right now. people with big bully
3:20 am
pulpits like the pope to bring more attention to this and other sources. pete: good point. >> for my background this comes down to collecting intelligence. we need to collect intelligence on the extent to which isis is trying to target specific christian here churches and state and local law enforcement need to penetrate networks that involved. individuals need to stay alert. new york knows this better than anyone. you see something, say something. pete: thanks for your expertise. we appreciate it? >> thank you. pete: coming up, a prank on police turns deadly. new arrests overnight and how a video game battle led to this real life tragedy. rachel: president trump set to undergo his first physical in office in the new year. what can we expect to find out about his health? dr. marc siegel takes us inside the exam room up next ♪ it's going to be a good life, a good life ♪ it's going to be a good life ♪ helped put a roof over the heads

3:26 am
rachel: all ofs have you seen footage of president trump eating things that maybe doctors wouldn't like. he likes kentucky fried chicken and he likes mcdonald's. are these things that a doctor would be worried about and actually recommend that he might cut back on? >> they will ask him about that. they will ask him about his diet and caffeine. great news with president trump he doesn't drink and he doesn't smoke. everyone out there should learn from that. no drinking no smoking is a really good prognostic sign. they will do vital signs on him. we know from previous exams his blood pressure has been under control. what his weight now. how can he bring it down? what is his height? they will examine his belly. they will do a thorough cardiac going over. lungs, neurologic exam hearing and eye exam. basic examinations. laboratory testing they will do. they will check his cholesterol, prostate. they will do electrocardiogram. past presidents have had stress tests done. will president trump undergo cardiac stress test is a question. they have done that they did it with president bush and

3:45 am
pete: joe donnelly tried to look like a trump democrat. also not voting with them. >> right. it's a team sport. people understand you are voting for the president or you are voting against. pete: got it. >> claire mccaskill been there a long time. won races she shouldn't have won. trump carried this state by 19%. not only tax reform. pete: which she voted against. >> tough to explain in missouri. we are talking about the senate, we are talking about supreme court appointments. when you talk about the supreme court in missouri they won't like chuck schumer having more say. pete: a vote for claire mccaskill is a vote for chuck schumer. >> that's correct. here is the story line. if the democrats win all three of these states, they probably win control of the senate. pete: that seems like a long shot for a lot of observers, especially considering the other races they have
3:46 am
democrats defending in six states good for republicans. >> if the republicans win all three states well then it's going to be a huge republican year. you probably have joe manchin getting nervous. pete: the senate while possible, unlikely. the house is what a lot of people. >> there is no way to pick three must win race. 435 races. i picked three to talk about that are representative. the first in illinois 6 peter roskam. this is a suburban district in illinois. a district that voted for mitt romney by 8 points. voted for hillary clinton by 7 points these are the kind of districts republicans could lose. these are the suburban white college educated women who are not thrilled with donald trump. pete: sure. >> if republicans lose this seat or others like this. pete: how playing his hand as far as the campaign? is he embracing president trump or running against him. >> he is trying to say i like some policies but i am
3:47 am
not associated with donald trump. pete: that half approach hasn't been very effective. >> if you are in illinois 6 or a suburban district, you don't have a great approach right now. pete: got it. >> this is a race now mia love, i would expect to win she is favored. utah not favorable to democrats. salt lake city mayor. very good candidate. if she runs a good campaign and if political winds by democrats are very strong. mia love could be in trouble. here's the story here. if you and i are talking about mia love's race in october, november, that means the democrats win control of the house: this one, again, stretch for the democrats. pete: obviously she has become a prominent voice for conservatives on capitol hill as well final race i
3:48 am

reality is you really should be aware of what is occurring. number one is, yes, these devices are listening. yes when you see the little ring spinning around on top of the device it is hearing you. what you should be aware of at this moment. they seem like nothing is really a big deal. but as we get more and more comfortable with these devices, the' cans are going to become a little bit closer where it may be on a nightstand. it could be in bed with you soon. they want to know more and more about us. the more they discover bus. whether it's our life behaviors to information that we're spouting out of our mouth or even calls that are being made in the same room, the more they can target us with advertising. and data. sell data. sounds great and are fun. but there is the possibility to lawsuits in the future

could really seek out the information that's being recorded on these devices and stored at servers in other locations. i have a child custody dispute and i want to subpoena everything that's this thing has heard that may be recorded on that. smart devices where can you control what is stored. good idea to always do this at least once a week, once every couple of weeks. log on to whatever your smart device is and get rid rid of the history on it especially if there is something on there you won't want the world to see. assume everyone is seeing data. rachel: that sounds terrible. >> it does sound terrible but it is just something -- you really need to keep your eye on it especially moving forward. rachel: there was a domestic dispute once and alexis called the cops and cops

4:04 am
antiquated immigration system. but we don't want to do it before we do border security and the american people have not trusted republicans in the past to do that. pete: correct. they feel they can trust donald trump on his rhetoric and willingness. peter: i asked mitch mcconnell on this after a hearing last month. are democrats going to do this right away he said well, there is no emergency to do it until march. the administration gave us until march it seems like what's about to happen is that the republicans by january 19th will have to go to the dems keep the government open again schumer and pelosi will be positioning themselves not unless you fix daca first. brought all these across the country illegally as children. they want some clarity on that. trump wants the wall. lindsey graham is saying border security is one place they can work with

4:17 am
weiner's laptop doesn't meet the definition of unsecured laptop i don't know what would. to say ms. abedin didn't know what she was doing was bunk. she had an obligation to protect classified material and, of course, one of the reasons it's classified material on anthony weiner's laptop because abedin had email account on which she was communicating with hillary clinton. from her secret server. the server she set up classified information from anthony weiner's laptop. anyone else would have been prosecuted. this is why the justice department needs to get its act together and reevaluate what james comey and loimpleg did in terms of getting hillary clinton get of jail free card. pete: was this negligence? did they understand what they were doing and did it any way? >> it was intentional and
4:18 am
negligent in the least. it was intentional that they were warned nonsecure places to do government business. hillary clinton herself talked about well, you know, security told me x and did i y anyway. they were warned repeatedly on this. yet they put this material out there to for the whole world to see. james comey had zero interest in upholding the rule of law there. this is why people are upset. they know what the rules are 4.5 million people with security clearances. they all know what the rules are. and i get that most of them are upset that hillary clinton and huma abedin got away with outrageous violations of law. again, we have got to have in the justice department reevaluate what went on last year. especially given all the pro-clinton anti-trump bias that we uncovered on comey

tweet was a video showing him body slamming the cnn logo. some thought it wasn't very presidential. others thought it was funny. regardless of what you thought about it certainly was a talker. which is why it was retweeted about 360,000 times. pete: i was hosting that morning. we didn't know what to do about it either. how you feels about the fake news media. >> second most retweeted tweet also kind of controversial. some people thought it was funny. it was an attack on kim jong un. why would he insult me by calling me old when i would never call him short and fat oh well i tried so hard to be his friend and maybe some day that will happen. retweeted. kind of a classic trump style. pete: he knowes how to weaponize with humor. >> that's right. speaking of humor. third most retweeted tweet this year the classic the infamous co-fe covfefe.

4:34 am
federation. the wild turkey in america was virtually extinct in the early 70s until they began contributing money to build habitat protection and the result now is turkeys are everywhere. same thing with deer. deer were becoming extinct 50 years ago because of overhunting. now because of management there are more urban areas. cities are figuring how to get rid of some of these deer. if you don't have something called chronic waste disease. i'm a member of ducks unlimited. same thing duck us unlimited dues and license fees of the hunters. that's what pays for the habitat, the feeding and hatching areas. now we have millions of mallards who fly on the central and mississippi fly aways down to mexico. pete: turns out they care about the environment and areas they hunt as well. we just had tom fitton on from judicial release. they just received a tranche of foias.

enforce the law. when i say universally. without regard to who the person is highest or lowest person in the land. if the law doesn't work against the highest person in the land. then it shouldn't work against the lowest person in the land. the person who really doesn't have stature or power. rachel: governor, what do you think is holding attorney general sessions back? he does seem really reticen reticent. >> i don't know if he is fearful of getting into areas where he will be accused of par sanship. this isn't about par sanship. this is about justice. one thing that i believe most americans want except for the extremes on the left and edges treatments on the right, the fact is we want the law to be equally applied. we want people like lois learner at the irs who abused her position and used the power of our government, not her government, our government and all that it entailed against us. we want people like bruce ohr and peter strzok and
4:38 am
lisa page who used the power of their government offices to go after people. not because they were criminals but because they were political opposites. this is a dangerous place. this is the kind of thing you see in totalitarian countries where the power of government is used to step on your political enemies. that's a dangerous. pete: have you had to make calls about clemency of sentences. have you been criticized for some of the calls have you made. governor cuomo in new york recently granted clemency to 61 convicted criminals on wednesday including 18 illegal immigrants who face deportation but now could be home free. some pretty touchy crimes, included on that list. it is seen as a shot at president trump and his immigration policy. what do you make of this 61 clemencies in new york? >> i'm going to be very
4:39 am
careful. there are were over 1200 come and sit on my desk to review. i try to take them seriously and look at them not politically buy judiciously. i can tell you, this there is no political upside, ever, in granting any kind of clemency whether it's reduction of sentence, whether it's commutation or outright pardon. all of this fall under the barner of clemency. because people will be angry at you for doing it very few acolytes come your way. also responsibility to see if this is a person who deserves because of a life well lived, maybe a crime committed when they were 16 or 17 and they did something stupid and now they can't even get a job emptying a bed pan in a nursing home because if you have a conviction of a felony, it may have been 20 years ago. but, under a background check rule that most states have. you're prohibited from going to chef school. you can't work in a nursing home. you can't be a janitor in a school. even if your crime had nothing to do with elderly
4:40 am
people or children. so, you know, until i looked at every one of those cases and reviewed them to see what cuomo did, i would be a little hesitant to be quick to criticize him because i didn't enjoy getting on the receiving end of that myself. pete: fair point. governor mike huckabee thank you for your time. now can you go hunting. >> happy new year. and happy hunting. rachel: yes, happy hunting. turning now to your headlines horrifying scenes. employees fleeing from gunfire at prominent law firm shot killed another before shooting himself. the lawyer was just fired from the firm. in houston, investigators believe a former auto shop worker killed two exco-workers before turning the gun on himself. it's unclear what led to either shooting. insane video capture ago woman freeing herself from hand cuffs and stealing a

tyrant. he wants to take more power into the executive branch and, in fact, she says he is trying to consolidate power but, what's interesting to me is it seems to be like president trump is trying to roll back all these regulations, get back power to the states. get power back to families. >> this is rich coming from a congressman and a party where the former president said that he didn't need congress. he could work around congress. rachel: pen and a phone, right? >> with a pen and a phone. donald trump as you say is actually repealing at love these executive orders, orders from on high. but i also would point out jackie sphere the democrat from california someone who liewted chrisly claimed she had inside knowledge that president trump was going to be firing robert mueller over the holidays. one someone who is trying to throw out red meat for constituents. rachel: we will see if it's red meat or ends up back firing. thank you for stopping by. >> you gout it, rachel. rachel: democrats also slamming the president for

rachel: from riots shutting down conservative speakers to biased professors, it was a wild year on college campuses all across this country. pete: joining us now to break down the craziest i'd long call stories from 2017 is cabot phillips. you have been on this all year for us. often on set covering some of the crazy stuff. we forced it you boil it down to 5 which is tough in light of state of faye fairs on college campuses. first university professor at georgia university of georgia well let's -- i will put the quote up of what he had to say and get you to react. he had a stress reduction policy. if you feel unduly stressed by a grade for any accessible material or course can you email the
4:54 am
instructor what grade you think is appropriate. no explanation in required. pick your open grade over there at the university of georgia. >> this is something that the professor doesn't realize by coddling the students he is actually hindering them in getting ready for the real world. stress is something you need how to process and do it away and i should be able to change my circumstances in life and stress would be gone. i told my land lord my rent is stressful i wanted it to be cut in half that's what i deserved it didn't go well. pete: email your own grade is unbelievable. peter: this professor claimed blamed the vegas shooting on the president. >> got elected i told my class this a year ago some of us won't be affected by this presidency but others are going to die. people will die because of this. as you is seen this happen, right? encourage violence.
4:55 am
>> it's important to point out that's a taxpayer institution. our money funding that kind of thing in the classroom. also, there was no proof or evidence of that statement. she just is throwing it out there. that's something we saw all year from the left classrooms professors and administrators were blaming everything on donald trump no matter what the issue was. that's one of the most egregious examples. peter: do we know if that teacher still has a job. >> she does. there is coverage of that and usually accountability is the best thing for getting professors like that out of the classroom. she does still have a job. rachel: we have evergreen students protest. i think we have video of that, too, right? >> we do absolutely. rachel: take a listen. >> hey, hey, ho, ho. these racist teachers have got to go. >> black power, black power. >> it's a little tough to tell exactly what's happening there. pete: barricaded the library. >> they actually held their administrators at school president hostage in their offices, demanded that one of the professors be fired because they felt that he wasn't racially inclusive
4:56 am
enough even though he was a liberal professor. the president came out and said i hey i have to go to the bathroom can i leave my outside of? they said we will escort you to the bathroom and you are going back to the office and you are not leaving until you fire the professor. these students said they were expressing themselves. allowing them to essentially get away with it other students were held accountable or represent prix handed for those actions. >> letting students escort you to the bathroom. the flipping of that dynamic is unbelievable to me. another one here charles murray a famous conservative writer. a scharp at the american enterprise institute. he tried to go to middle bury college and give a speech and was shut down. >> shock ily, it did not go well trying to bring conservative ideas to middleburg college. these students rioted. there was a liberal professor trying to escort him to the speech. and they were attacked. the professor spent a month. i actually went to middle bury to talk to the administrator about what happened. none of the students were held account being or
4:57 am
reprimanded for those actions. also, they have a new policy where any speaker who comes have to get approval. if they are too controversial they are not allowed. rachel: finally we have berkeley riots with myelo i didn't know annapolis. i spoke at burkly defend free speech if we are going to make campus alberto. >> escorting college presidents to the bathroom and choosing our own grade. cabot, well done. see new 2018. >> thank you so much. pete: we flow the president has been fighting fake news. we have more on that coming up next. ♪

5:03 am
we are still going through the roughly 2800 emails that the state department release wanted. so far we have found emails that were marked as classified. these emails were either sent or received by huma abedin who while most of the messages are related to hillary clinton's schedule and talking points conversations with world leaders. those of the state department determined contain classified information are either partially or entirely redacted. one exception is this exchange phone call with saudi arabia's foreign minister warning him about wikileaks' plan to release sensitive u.s. diplomatic cables. including conversations with the saudis about iraq, iran and afghanistan. the note suggests that clinton say, quote. i deeply regret the likely upcoming wikileaks disclosure and i seek your help in preventing wikileaks from undermining our mutual national interests. the fbi uncovered the emails in the course of its sexting investigation into huma abedin's husband anthony weiner. they have now been released
5:04 am
following a lawsuit by judicial watch which is calling the justice department to take action. >> there are, i think, four and a half million people with security clearances that allow them access to classified information such as. this they all know what the rules are i guarantee you most of them are suspect set that hillary clinton and huma abedin got away with outrageous violations of the law. >> james comey was asked about these very emails this past summer in an appearance on capitol hill. he said no charges were. >>ed because investigators didn't believe abedin knew what she was doing was against the law: pete: she didn't know what she was doing was wrong or illegal. it's been the defense from the clinton team from the very beginning. i have had a top secret clearance. you understanding what you are doing with information that's even remotely sensitive let alone cleafd oclassified or secret. documents on her husband's

laptop totally unsecured. i guess they probably lock their door to their house. that's it. you know you are being negligent when you conduct something like that. pete: so much talk about this dossier every day. the claims in that are still unverified. but it's still all that anybody talks about. these emails are verified as classified. pete: great point. rachel: absolutely, remember, she was interviewed by peter strzok the former investigator who also interviewed hillary clinton and by the way michael flynn. and huma abedin in this interview said that she did not know about the private server until hillary clinton left the state department. that's a blatant lie. i believe that lying to the fbi is what got michael flynn in trouble. i think the american people are looking at this and going why is there such a double standard? pete: because you can't lie to the fbi unless you are connected to the clintons and protected by those folks. it seems inside the fbi. that's the feeling that so many regular americans, forgotten americans that voted for president trump. i look at the swamp and see
5:06 am
people who have privilege and access and another set of rules that i don't have. they get to do whatever they want. if i make one misstep then i end up in prison. this email investigation reopened. still have ongoing doj inspector general investigation. it could find some real things that lead to a reinvestigation and investigating et investigators. we had mike huckabee on, former arkansas governor. former presidential candidate. we asked him about this double standard. here's what he had to say. >> it's a horrible double standard. it's something that we can't afford to have. it's a justice system that we don't trust and increasingly americans don't trust the department of justice. don't trust the law enforcement agencies because they feel like that they are politically selective who they go after and what they try to do to them. this is a dangerous place. this is the kind of thing you see in totalitarian countries where the power of government is used to step on your political enemies. that's a dangerous, dangerous thing for a republic like the one we
5:07 am
live in. peter: something i hear from a lot of conservative lawmaker types, you know, congressman and their aids in washington is that they're getting really frustrated that the attorney general jeff sessions is not prosecuting stuff like this. the president suggested to the "new york times" this weekend he thinks that obama had an attorney general in eric horl who was more loyal to him than sessions has been. this could be a real test. is huma abedin going to be prufted the same way that somebody like david petraeus was a couple years ago or does she skate? i think i will see loot of republicans and conservative was watching the attorney general very, very closely the next couple days to see if there actually is a double standard. rachel: it's in the hands of the attorney general. a lot of people w50eu6 is he doing this? some are suggesting the deep state may have something on him.

6:03 am
cards on capitol hill and the white house says he doesn't want a deal unless he gets when he campaigned on. he said the democrats have been told and fully understand that there can be no daca without the wall at the southern border. and an end to the horrible chain migration and the system of immigration, et cetera. you must protect our country at all cost. the folks who voted for him, many of them gravitated to him initially and throughout the campaign because of the promise to build that wall and change our immigration policy. what you make of the opportunity for a deal going forward. rachel: i don't think there will be a deal unless the democrats agreed to do border security. the president has made a case about chain migration that some of these terrorist attacks have reinforced. he is standing on solid ground and channeling the place where the american voters are. they want a solution of compassionate these children
6:04 am
were caught in the middle of this failed immigration system that we have, but they also want to make sure that we don't have another wave of daca kids. the only way to do that is to secure the border. i think he's on pretty good ground. >> on wednesday when the senate goes back to d.c., there will this meeting where schumer and pelosi will be there for the democrats and ryan emma, will be there for the democrats for they will something daca. i asked mcconnell last year, do you have to get this done anytime soon because the democrats really want too. he said the administration has given us until march so no emergency yet, but it does not look like that's the way the democrats see things, because they have another government shutdown looming on january 19. it appears that schumer and pelosi are positioning themselves to say when the republicans ask for cash to keep the lights on, we will do that but you've got to give us
6:05 am
some clarity about what's going to happen to all these people who are brought here illegally as kids. >> they said the same thing before the end of the year end a lot of activists are angry about that. >> they demanded a lot of congressional hispanic caucus was mad at the leadership for blinking on daca but nancy pelosi said january actually counts as the end of last year because they never buttoned up the budget so it's coming in the next couple of weeks. rachel: we will see if the democrats think it is politically a good idea to shut down the government over daca. remember the criticism they gave republicans when they wanted to shut down over funding over plan parenthood and other things that came up in the past. rachel:'s before he has taken a strong stance on immigration even without the wall but the oaks on the ground say a wall is necessary if we are really going to take on immigration.
6:06 am
>> because there was a barrier bill, offense, it's now one of the safest cities in america. i think there's lots of data points and that the president can point to that suggest this would be successful policy for our state and our country. it's been too long since we've had real reform. we're looking all across america for congress to get something done. i think it's time that happens on immigration and there's something for everyone in this type of deal as long as they are willing to come to the table and talk. rachel: i think border security is a bipartisan issue. the position that schumer and pelosi have is really on the extreme which is open borders. i think the american people really want this and they believe donald trump is the politician, the man who can get it done. >> border security may be bipartisan but the wall which president trump says is a dealbreaker is not.

6:08 am
days before the election. while the e-mails are new, this is the first time the public has been able to see a lot of them. so by the state department released about 2800 e-mails and of those we know of at least five that were later deemed to contain classified information. most of the messages are related to her schedule and talking points with world leaders and several marked classified which are either partially or entirely redacted. one exception is this exchange from november 2010 regarding an upcoming phone call with saudi arabia's prime minister warning him about diplomatic cables that were about to be made public by wikileaks. that suggested clinton say i deeply read grad the likely upcoming wikileaks disclosure. i seek your help and preventing wikileaks from undermining our mutual interest the fbi uncovered the e-mail in its course of sexting investigation with anthony weiner. some of the messages came from an account on hillary private e-mail server. >> this is the reason is
6:09 am
classified information that was put on anthony weiner's laptop. this is why the justice department needs to get its act together and re- evaluate what james commented and loretta lynch did in terms of giving hillary clinton a get out of jail free card. many may remember james comey said investigators chose not to recommend any charges because they believe she didn't know what she was doing was against the law. >> thanks for that report. you've been up all morning long but bertie tells me you have another reason to be up early, a new addition. congratulations. >> thank you so much. tell us about this little guy. >> heaven sent us a little angel for christmas. dallas joined us, beautiful perfect child. we have now not been getting much sleep. we are getting used to that but despite that, life has never been happier. >> but so great. congratulations. >> well done. go home and change some

diapers. >> what he was just talking about with uma aberdeen, all those things that have been known to law enforcement, we are just finding out about because judicial watch suit. why hasn't she faced more scrutiny? is there a double standard? >> a lot of people are asking that question right now. you have two competing investigations. you got the ongoing special counsel and other investigations into the russian collusion aspect and then you got a look back at whether or not there were two standards as it pertained to hillary clinton and her e-mail server. this is what the governor had to say. >> it's a horrible double standard and something we can't afford to have. it's a justice system that we don't trust and increasingly americans don't trust the department of justice, don't trust the law-enforcement agencies because they feel
6:11 am
they are politically selective in who they go after and what they try to do to them. this is dangerous place. this is the kind of thing you see in totalitarian countries where the power of government is used to step on your political enemies. that is a dangerous thing for a republic like the one we live in. >> it's really a double standard. first of all, she lied to the fbi. we know michael flynn lied to the fbi and we saw nothing happened. also cheryl mills. winkleman came out in defense of why she wasn't prosecuted, she said she didn't know what she was doing. remember there was that enlisted naval, what rank was he? very low ranking who took a picture in a submarine which was classified, he also didn't know he was breaking protocol when he did that and he sat in jail for that. uma aberdeen, i guess you have friends in high places. >> the president and many conservatives are trying to present the justice department as this place filled with, they call it the deep state,
6:12 am
lifelong bureaucrats who they believe are doing whatever they can using the instruments of the justice department and the fbi to help democratic lawmakers like the clintons while giving unfair scrutiny to the trump spread this is a big moment for the attorney general because a lot of conservatives are very upset. does he now go prosecute her for having all these illegal stuff on her estranged husband's laptop, or does he let it skate? that could really determine whether or not you hear more complaints in the next couple of weeks based on what i have heard on capitol hill. >> you can do it in a way that reestablishes some trust in the department of justice as well. president trump has to believe that the system is not rigged against them and for the wealthy. rachel: clean it up. turning to a headline, and officers shot and wounded and it ambush attack. she was conducting when

would not have a nuclear program if it wasn't for the old soviet union. they provided them with their first research nuclear reactor in the 1950s and the young nuclear facility which we talked a lot about built in the 1980s with soviet help actually, in fact, in the early 1990s was russian scientist who went to north korea and help them build their missiles. if you actually put the north korean missile next to a russian missile, the local most identical. rachel: a lot of people are talking about this, it's affecting all of us, it is looming on the horizon for all of us. people say the past -- the path is through china, but what can we do. we can really get in a trade war with them. >> we have to remember that the u.s. china bilateral relationship is were something like $6 billion. this is a massive trade relationship. there are jobs at stake on
6:19 am
both sides of the economy. considering the president has done such a great job building this economy backup from the obama years, i think he's a little leery to go down that road. you can actually see that in some of his comments. i think he's doing the smart thing here, but there are a lot of ways we can put pressure on china. the chinese are trying to dominate the south china sea. we could do more to push back on that. they're always trying to stifle the democracy of taiwan. we could do more there. there are things we can do to push back on china, and beijing needs to be aware that. >> harry, we may be leery of a trade war with china but i'm more weary of a true threat from north korea. 2018 is going to be a make or break year. you hear a lot about more pressure here and there, but it hasn't changed the calculus in north korea. can we prevent them from having the world's worst weapons and the ability to hit us and what could we actually do in 2018? >> the challenge here is that the north koreans have nuclear weapons are ready. this is the reality. it's a horrible reality. i don't want to admit that, but i think we need to speak
6:20 am
truth on that one. they have those weapons in their building long-range missiles. it will be very hard to get them to give those up. i think the president has the right strategy. think about this for a second. 90% of north korea's exports are gone. they are losing billions of dollars a year trying to build that nuclear program so the best option we have, short of war is to really strangle their economy. their economy is the size of vermont. it's worth $13 billion. that's our ace in the hole to strangulated the north koreans and get them to the negotiating table. and the president has the right strategy. i think in 2018 he will push on. >> but vermont doesn't have its own nukes. >> i appreciate your point. thank you very much. >> vanity fair is apologizing for suggesting very lightly and kindly some new year's resolutions for hillary clinton, but this morning, we are making resolutions for some politicians including

need to fund the wall. we believe the wall is going to go up. there is a prototype being made as we speak. the wall is going up whether they like it or not. >> that's right. >> very interesting. under obama, family income dropped by almost a thousand dollars in just one year. black family income under president trump is up almost a thousand dollars or over thousand dollars. we also know unemployment is down. home ownership is up for black americans. you predict that minorities and particularly black community are going to give donald trump a chance? >> i depict that. when we are out and about, we have african-americans coming up to me, coming up to us and saying the president is doing a phenomenal job. thank you for speaking out, thank you for saying things we can say. we do predict that more african-americans are on the trump train and want to be voting for donald trump in 2020. >> and a lot of them have given him an opportunity and a chance, that's why they voted for him.

6:29 am
to you how they want you to be and is not going to work. listen, people are tired of that mentality. the goal is happening across the world like in the rim. people want economic opportunity. so if the democrats don't want to do it the megan had to get out of the way and let president trump make america great again. >> what about the republicans in congress. do you think they are doing, are they helping the president follow through on his agenda to your liking? >> well i guess they may be trying to, but trying is not enough. either you're on the trump train or not. sometimes i get irritated with these republicans because with every thing going on with the fbi in this new investigation, this is, whatever her name is, you would think these republicans, if this would happen to the obama administration, all chains and fences were broken loose.
