todd: rob: the russia investigation heating up and could come to a close. carley: robert mueller asking for little to no jail time for michael flynn. rob: that leaves responsible collusion unanswered here. here to discuss more is legal fellow at the heritage
2:16 am
foundation hans perkowski. thanks for coming on this morning. a lot of this is perspective. some people say they look at this and the walls are closing around the president, others say where is the collusion? tough to know what to make of this was what do you think? >> we don't know what evidence bob mueller may have, hasn't been disclosed. what we know so far is frankly nothing about any attempted collusion. the flynn plea deal that has been announced had to do with him having lied about the contents of a conversation he had with the russian ambassador after the election. the thing to keep in mind is if he simply told the truth he wouldn't be in court, wouldn't be awaiting a plea deal because having a conversation with the russian ambassador is not illegal or unlawful. we don't know if there's anything else hidden that we haven't found out about.
2:17 am
carley: a lot of analysis says flynn cooperation is bad for team trump but that is assuming that there was collusion. is in sight could point to the fact that nothing happened at all. look at the charges filed against michael flynn, manafort and cohen. manafort and cohen have a lot to worry about. looks like things are not as rosy for paul manafort. carley: a long list. rob: and cohen's has summer between the two. is the most uncertain? it has to be manafort. >> right but it is important to understand all the charges against him, bank fraud, tax evasion etc. had nothing to do with the presidential campaign. it was all for activity years before and on:he pleaded guilty to lying to congress last week
2:18 am
but if he simply told the truth he wouldn't be in court because the underlying conduct, negotiating a real estate deal is perfectly legal and legitimate. there was nothing untoward about that. if he had to be told the truth he wouldn't be in court. rob: one side says why are they lying? the other side says they didn't like the optics of the deals going on with russia at the same time so they are lying -- is the line the worst crime in your opinion? >> so far that is the only crime. going back to the plea deal. remember the special counsel is recommending no jail time. maybe that is because of his cooperation. it might be because mueller didn't want this case going to court because it is reported the two fbi agents who interviewed
2:19 am
him didn't actually think that flynn was lying so mueller may have realized if he had to go to court this case would have fallen apart in court. carley: a lot of the flynn memo was so heavily rejected, there's a lot he doesn't when the american people to know yet. do you think this whole thing is wrapping up anytime soon? >> i would hope so this has been going on for so long but it is important to keep in mind a lot of the sentencing memo was blacked out so we don't know what we don't know and there might be undisclosed evidence that could be a problem. we had not seen anything to date. ainsley: rob: a great op-ed on foxnews.com. carley: urgent warning for parents. you have children's ibuprofen in your cabinet? what you need to know about a new recall.

stolen. what is troubling is this is difficult because this hack dates back to 2014. that could be difficult for some people to prove they may have been impacted if there passport number was stolen in the data breach. in addition, email addresses, all that in formation compromised. carley: that number is so insanely high i have to check up on that. rob: marriott stock. krispy kreme. 12 for 12. >> next wednesday, december 12, '12/12, krispy kreme have their day of the dozens promotion. you have to buy one dozen of any flavor, any combination and for a dollar you get a second dozen of glazed donuts. here's your chance to be the office hero to make your family happy. rob: 144 for $12.

2:34 am
shot? >> thanks for having me on. we have a diverse group of candidates, democrats are clearly excited about and we are running on messages voters have decided they like. we saw it last month in the general election. folks came out because democrats talk about preexisting condition than protecting people so they can stay on health insurance so we have a good message and good host of candidates and we will have primaries where voters get to decide who will be our candidate for november. rob: a democratic contender leading the pack at this point, joe biden at the top, 76 years old, bernie sanders 77. hillary is up there in the top 3 at 13% and beto at 9%. does this look right to you?
2:35 am
does that look like the right lineup? >> certainly not the right lineup. these contenders fall into two categories, the old establishment elites that were rejected in the form of hillary clinton, joe biden in that category as well and the radical socialists, bernie sanders, cory booker, elizabeth warren, people who want to take us back to the age of the soviet union, china where socialism has failed so no good message, no good candidates. a lot of bad options. we are looking forward to this primary because you will see the field creep left a very far left and difficult to win a general election. rob: when you have this many candidates it will be an outlier that gets the most attention, somebody that makes a lot of noise and probably the furthest left. are you worried about that? >> we have a diverse group of candidates and we are seeing the field shake out. they are talking to their family

>> security versus privacy. the nypd unveiling a new drone surveillance program designed to keep citizens safe but not everyone is on board. joining me to discuss whether our security privacy, councilman
2:41 am
joe borelli, thanks for being with us. the nypd unveiled 14 drones they will use for things like in large events to make sure everyone is safe from the sky, hostage situations and things of that nature but the new york city civil liberties union are expressing privacy concerns. >> they are not wrong. we have to balance the difference between privacy, the need to keep people safe. we have a heightened sense of security in new york city. we are always a target, we had multiple terrorist attacks in the last two or three years with these are tools that 900 law enforcement agencies use, la, las vegas, those places, even new york city the fire department uses drone technology so this is not unprecedented but when you are new york city this becomes national news, they are being very specific in instances where they can use it and very specific in instances where they can't.
2:42 am
it will never be used as a weapon or a routine patrol thing, there will not be a fleet of big brother drones following people around all day. they were specific in constructing this policy to meet the standards of the fourth amendment. heather: the new york civil liberties union don't feel they are being specific enough, they believe the new policies fall short of what is needed to balance the legitimate law enforcement needs against privacy interests of new yorkers. so a certain scenario, say there is a drug deal going down and the drone footage catches it while they are filming something else, could the police do anything in that situation? >> a scenario like that would be unlikely but the issue would be the aclu, what people do with that footage, their concern is this archival footage just 24/7 rolling cameras around new york city, we had this debate with the use of police body cameras. the public access etc..
2:43 am
that will work out the same way. the concern people have is on the 20th for apartment there is a police drone covering outside, that's not going to happen. carley: isis threatened new york city with a sniper attack. government that happens. imagine how useful this technology would be in a situation like that. >> we are to use helicopters for overhead surveillance. they are big and cumbersome and expensive and you have to have people manning them. these are extremely small, quick tactical drones that can be used in deployments like this to locate people on rooftops and you can see the need for this. carley: two are bigger drones that are weather resistant and have thermal imaging capabilities. this is pretty neat technology and imagine how that thermal
2:44 am
imaging technology would be in a hostage situation so this could keep police officers safer where they know where a potential shooter could be before they enter a situation. >> there are certain needs the police need to have, to know where people are located in an apartment or house before you go there. this type of thing this type of drone would be used for, larger all weather things and central park, other giant parks around the city, people go missing good, looking for bodies and these devices help the police find people in need faster. >> safety is first, with everybody having cell phones in their pockets you have to live with the assumption your privacy is your own. >> thank you for being with us, very insightful. a roller coaster week for the markets as stock slump amid trade fears was what can we expect? g marks says the economy levels

2:52 am
do? >> we represent my firm, 600 small business owners. i'm 53 years old but i never fought in a war before. never sacrificed like generations before me. the president is asking us particularly in the business community maybe we take a hit in 2019, maybe there are things we have to sacrifice, less dollars in profit to get trade deals for a country like china the way it should be for future generations. when i speak to people my age or younger a lot of people are prepared for that. we are not thrilled about it but it is something we are willing to sacrifice in the president has more support. rob: sometimes it gets worse before it gets better, that is part of the deal. let's talk about taxes because everybody loves to pay taxes. the bad news is you have to think about it because we are coming up on the end of the year. we have some tips here, let's start with tips for individuals and bring up that information on
