what the fbi was looking for when theyy targeted the president's personal attorney they wanted more details on the access hollywood tape raising access hollywood tape raising new questions whether there were other attempted payoffs in the 2016 campaign and raising eyebrows about why this investigation is veering far from the original mission of finding collusion between russian adventures and disrupt finding collusion between russian adventures and disrupt him. the present is furious and still peaked about theor way his personal attorney was treated. sources a part of what the fbi was looking for was documents related to the infamous access hollywood tape, appears to be an attempt to link the tape to stormy daniels which was the president's attorney trying to stop more bad publicity late in the campaign. did any of this constitutes an illegal campaign contribution or violation of campaign finance law. cbs news is reporting search and seizure warnings executed against:mentioned the president's name several times
12:03 am
one source saying it was a search and destroy mission to specifically go after the president all of this infuriating the president, his a top aides and leaving sarah sanders to make clear the president believes robert mueller's probe leading a witchhunt and appealing his mandate and leaving the door open to the firing of rod rosenstein who approved the raids, as one of the president's outside legal advisors urged the atty. gen. to get more active. >> paul ryan has been given assurances the president isn't planning on fire rosenstein or mueller. do you know where he is getting those assurances? from the president or others? >> i don't have any announcements on that front. >> what bob mueller is doing and has done is destroy the department of justice and for jeff sessions to sit there like a bump on a log and do nothing r
12:04 am
is disgraceful. >> washington post says steve bennett is urging his old colleagues in the white house to get more aggressive with a multipronged assault on the federal investigation telling administration officials get the president to fire rosenstein to rein in mueller and stop cooperation, have no presidential interview with a special counsel and bannon once the president to retroactively invoke executive privilege, to cooperate with special counsel, that he can noe longer use that material. shannon: we will see if the president is listening to his advice. the threat of legal action and more for the justice department, learning more about why trump administration officials have been reluctant to share the contents of a top-secret fbi memo involving russia and the 2016 election. catherine herridge late details. >> reporter: after threatening
12:05 am
contempt of congress the republican chairman of the house intelligence committee devon nunez along with congressman trey guardians committee staffers went to the justice departmenttw and met with rod rosenstein and a copy of the memo that kick started the russia probe and lawmakers demanded government source told fox reductions were, quote, minimal and justified. the two page memo from july 2016 was drafted by or with significant input with peter stzrok after the discovery of anti-trump text messages which nunez said legal action was warranted after months of delay by the fbi and justice department. >> that tells me there's something wrong. >> what are the chances of contempt of congress right now? >> not just hold them in contempt, but to impeach.
12:06 am
>> to impeach christopher ray? >> we are not messing around. >> despite the 11th hour resolution fox news said congressional investigators remain concerned about the underlying intelligence and the credibility of its sources and it will require further investigation. the justice department provided a statement that the rejections are tailored to protect the name of foreign countries and the name of a foreign agent. there was no immediaten.ry resp from the fbi. >> reporter: wall street journal editorial board calling the fbi raid on donald trump's personal attorney and extraordinary intrusion into a target's right to counsel. mike huckabee, great to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> what do you think of that, people who see these search warrants it was really the president who was the target and it was a search and destroyt
12:07 am
mission. anything about that surprise you? >> not nothing surprises me because whilst would you coh go after michael cohen. you don't know breaking doors down and taking over people's computers and going into their homes, personal residences and upsetting their children because you think he might have made a campaign contribution, that is nonsense. this is clearly annin attempt t intimidate the president, to do everything possible to intimidate his attorney and most americans have a good sense of justice, they want their to be justice apply even if you are the president but they wanted to be applied equally and they don't see that happening, nobody busted down cheryl mills store, nobody went into home's house when anthony weiner had all kinds of information he shouldn't't have had on his computer. there is something tawdry about
12:08 am
all this. >> is parties from the wall street journal editorial board saying the smart advice which the won't take is to keep quiet about robert mueller and the political capital by trying to succeed as president. he can't control mr. mueller but he can control himself as that might be the only way to save his presidency and rush limbaugb says he doesn't think mueller -- it would've leaked if he did so this is the purpose of the raid. >> the drive-bys want trump to fire himself by firing mueller. they are asking him if he is going to. they are goading him into doing it because that is the only way they think they will succeed and be able to participate in the great project of bringing down donald trump. >> the only people who think donald trump is going to fire
12:09 am
mueller are the press people who hope he does. but the president has not said that. 's staff hasn't said that, they technology has the power to do it but having the power to do it and actually doing it are 2 different things. i see no indication that donald trump has an intention to fire bob mueller because he knows the firestorm it would create that this is the narrative the media has created to discredit donald trump and to be a distraction. to make it appear that is what he is doing. why else would they be contemplating passing legislation that would protect bob mueller. was going to great -- protect
12:10 am
the great republic of ours and the integrity of the office of the president and the separation of powers? who is going to protect every american from the intrusion of a federal agency coming and busting into your home on a fishing expedition that has nothing to do with russia and collusion? a shannon: there are concerns about attorney-client privilege, the document separate from the investigative team, thanks for drinking the red pool. >> thank you. >> thank you. shannon: the crisis over syria, leaders of the united states and russia talking tough, each side with a defined posture. kristen fisher looks at the back of this rhetoric. >> reporter: the self-imposed deadline of 48-hour to make a decision about what to do in syria past a few hours ago and theys white house says the president has not made a final decision and all options are unstable. the us and its allies are trying to confirm that the asad regime was behind this attack. here is the secretary of defense.

we are standing by what is going to happen with syria. the president has talked tough publicly about it, sen. lindsey graham say earlier on fox the graham say earlier on fox the president better deliver because he talked big and if he doesn't come through foreign leaders are not going to respect him. what responsede do you expect? >> a year ago in terms of the cruise missile attacks on syria, i expect more of the same and this time he is involving france, great britain, saudi arabia. we have a coalition, we cannot allow this to stand. the questions in the hearing willtand be how does one hold a accountable? mike 6 is the right person to be secretary of state and people listening to my will be convinced of that. >> the chairman of your committee says he has doubts how the us response will go. here is what he said. >> becoming a little concerned we may move into a situation like we did with pres. obama
12:14 am
where statements are made, no action taken. >> wears that coming from and do redline and it turned into a green light and we saw asad using chemical weapons on his people. people. when donald trump took office when donald trump took office the same thing happened in syria donald trump reacted decisively and i expect he will react again, canceled his trip to latin america and secretary of defense mamattis has canceled h trip and he will be here throughout the weekend, we have got to get a secretary of state in place and that is why hearings are consequential adequate confirmation is necessary. >> chris murphy had this to say about what he sees shaping up with these nominees. a lot of us are worried about the combination of neil gorsuch and the national security visoro
12:15 am
putting a set of military options on the table for the president, could do real damage to our national security. we will see what questions he has and how he votes but he has doubts about that combination. >> i have no doubts about that combination. very confident inde their abili. mike neil gorsuch, i travel to international security conferences with them, he knows the issues, he was number one in his class at west point, graduated harvard law school, member of congress for t the la year director of the cia and confirmed 15 democrats voted for him. he is the right person. he understands he and donald trump have wonderful chemistry. he understands our enemies out there, a lot on syria, issues of russia,, it ran, north korea, there is a full plate of issues internationally and if we want safety and stability at home you need to have a world where there is peace and stability as he wants to get that done from the standpoint of diplomatic
12:16 am
activities but isieie not afrai take other measures. shannon: the committee has split 11 republicans and 10 democrats, rand paul saying he is a no vote, opposes the nomination on numerous grounds. you need some democrats to support them, you mentioned 15 supported him in the vote for cia director but a number of them are saying this is a d different job. totally different. will you get democrat support at least the committee is more broadly? >> i believe we will and we need to do that. such resistance by the democrats to donald trump putting any of his team in place, time to say the world is a dangerous place, the president needs his teamam place, mike pompeo has been selected and to me he is the right person to do that job. i support him fully. after people listen to him tomorrow they will see in terms of the immediate threat syria,

12:22 am
everything that is going on, we'll break it down. the president talk today about the legacy that ryan will leave behind. what does he leave? >> at his tax reform. this is something that paul ryan wanted to do from the minute he walked up to congress in 1999. he got that done. that is a major part of his legacy. but earlier today on fox, he talked about some of the things he didn't get done and there are a couple of drinks in his armor. speaker repealing a note -- repealing and replacing obamacare something that i wanted to do. i'm proud of the fact that the house has done at. >> entitlements are the biggest drivers of the debt. remember, house speaker paul ryan had been the chairman of the budget committee, the fabled ryan budgets, which were supposed to bring things into balance. that never happened. one of the things that paul ryan will be remembered for is the fact he did not bring down spending. they just passed the omnibus bill, tax reform, congressional budget office did come of this will add almost $2 trillion to the debt in the next couple of . $21 trillion in debt right now.
12:23 am
that is a part of his legacy. he didn't bring down deficit spending. >> shannon: he certainly wanted to. a hard sell. how does his leadership race shakeout? >> the reason paul ran a speaker of the house right now is because kevin mccarthy, the majority leader, did not have the votes to the reason paul riney speaker of the house as kevin mccarthy did not have the votes to succeed john boehner and this is a leadership race, people thought there would be blood on the floor, they couldn't get somebody to step into the fray and that was paul ryan a couple years ago. you are hearing about kevin mccarthy who solidified with the house republican conference. he is close to donald trump but the fact that steve scalise is on the radar tells you a lot. he literally took a bullet for the team on baseball practice field last june in virginia. his name is in the mix, he would like to move up in leadership if the opportunity avails itself,
12:24 am
donald trump may have an important role in this and there could be some dark horses, republicans who don't like the current leadership structure regardless of who is there and we are hearing about mark walker, chair of the republican committee, the largest block of republicans in the house of representatives, conservatives in the house and also former speaker of the utah legislature rob bishop, chairman of the resources commission. >> a busy day for you tracking testimony of mark zuckerberg, thank you very much. my next guest is one of the lawmakers who had tough questions for mark zuckerberg including wanting to know why diamond and silk were banned from facebook. >> we don't think about what we are doing is censoring speech. there are types of content like terrorism but i think we all agree we do not ones on our service. >> let me tell you something right now. diamond and silk is not
12:25 am
terrorism. >> marsha blackburn, member of the energy and commerce committee, did you get your questions answered to your contentment about privacy and addressing these concerns? >> i did not. i thought it was interesting that he was so ill prepared. he didn't realize there is privacy legislation, he seemed unaware of that and how can you be coming before congress, before the committee, before the member who has written the bill, me, and not be aware privacy having one set of rules, one regulator for the entire internet ecosystem? this is something i have worked on in a bipartisan manner for four years and it was astounding he was not briefed on that or the ftc consent decree or the
12:26 am
lawsuits and settlements they have made. we expected more prep work. shannon: you would think the prep team would have prepped them for all of that. he took a lot of grilling. chris wilson used to do research and analytics and digital strategy when he was running for president. the questions of whether facebook is censoring, they made a lot of changes but this is how they play out. and review data since facebook up limited changes doesn't demonstrate bias against conservatives but a drop in traffic for an trustworthy click bait websites and scams that have the potential to embarrass supporters. he said things like fox news and mark meadows, conservative member of congress, a lot of conservatives are doing well on facebook, it is more about click bait traffic and buys. as their political issue? >> i think there's a political issue. mark zuckerberg mentioned he has 15 to 20,000 content managers and even though he doesn't want them to bring their liberal bias
12:27 am
and it was his word saying silicon valley is liberal, that seems to be coming into the workplace with him and that is why i asked him if they subjectively manipulate their algorithms because if they are subjectively manipulating their algorithms to go in and censor free speech or prioritize coupled with somebody who brings that liberal bias no wonder you have issues like diamond and silk or other conservative groups or organizations that seem to be banned or have content -- liberal organizations. >> to the speaker's decision not to run again. a piece on hot air said this. there is no way to read the
12:28 am
impending retirement of a young speaker of the house is anything but a start concession the gop house majority is ending. >> i wouldn't say that. paul ryan has been here 20 years, he has three teenagers at home, he has accomplished his main goal, he and his wife are ready for a different chapter. he wants to be in every day dad, not just a weekend dad. i appreciate that and this is the time to reposition himself. >> any predictions? it is consistently there's going to be a blue wave although the generic ballot democrats have a 3 deck advantage in the quinnipiac poll which is tied up and it has been. >> when you get to district and the selection that localized that blue wave is going to run into red walls and people like their member of congress so i think they will keep the house, i think they will pick up a seat or two in the senate and i think
12:29 am
it will be a tough election season. but it will be good. >> 7 short months ago and who knows how many roller coasters between now and then. thank you for coming in. former house speaker john boehner will promote nationwide legalization of marijuana. he joined the advisory board of acreage holdings, multistate cannabis company, he wants to allow veterans affairs department to offer marijuana as a treatment option. and calls for his impeachment misery republican governor eric wright is calling the investigation to visit the extra marital affair witchhunt and statehouse investigation releasing testimony claiming he initiated an unwanted sexual encounter with his hairdresser and threatened to distribute a partially nude photo of her if she spoke out about it. the report signed by all 5 republicans and democrats on the committee describes the woman's testimony is credible.

authority says the number one reason homeless numbers are going up is rents and housing prices are going up and the irony is many cities don't want to build homeless shelters because it hurts real estate prices. a series of not in my backyard protests has blocked homeless housing intensities in several areas including all of orange county. watch. >> the people living there, it evolves internally and externally to its community. >> reporter: a few years ago la county voters approved the tax hike to raise $1.2 billion to build 10,000 housing units for the homeless but it could take decades to get the builder the problem is growing by the day so now the county board of supervisors is trying a pilot project that would literally put the homeless in your backyard. the idea is to build a handful of small backyard houses with electricity and plumbing where the most stable individuals could live meaning people who
