guatemala and congo. we talked to migrants on the streets who was in that shelter and has gone through the process, gotten a legal temporary work visa as he tries to work his way towards the united states to apply for asylum. his name is marcus and has a message for other migrants and donald trump. >> we have to enter legally. illegally is bad. to enter the united states, going to have our life and us, to keep and to keep our life. >> reporter: this comes as customs and border protection tweet this morning on the rio grande river in texas, the body of a child was recovered, with migrants that were trying to cross. a reminder of the dangers of this journey. heather: unbelievable.

news learned special counsel to the president and it flood towards robert mueller and his investigators in a letter to william barr accusing the special counsel's team of political statements saying they failed to act as traditional prosecutors. as for the, quote, hearing which barr refused to appear at over demanded staff counsel be able to question him democrats using the no-show as an opportunity to attack the president and the ag. >> system of not having a president as a dictator is at stake. >> he lied to congress. if anybody else did that it would be considered a crime. >> reporter: a visit from the kernel, congressman steve cohen's attempt at humor. >> chicken bar should have shown up today and answered questions. he was afraid of mary burke, attorney general who picked for his illegal acumen and abilities would not be fearful of any other attorneys questioning him
for 30 minutes. >> reporter: jerry never for the contempt citation against william barr if he does not meet democrats demands. it is a shame for democracy when you bring the kernel into it. heather: i didn't find it very funny but theatrical is a good word. thank you so much. meantime some new revelations on how the fed tried to spy on the trump campaign in 2016. according to the new york times a female us informant posed as a researcher in an attempt to probe george papadopoulos on the campaign's possible ties to russia. the former foreign policy advisor sounding off to tucker carlson. >> i met with her, she was younger, very flirtatious, this wasn't the job of an assistant and she barely spoke english, was very flirty. >> reporter: papadopoulos adding he had suspicions she was the us
informant before she was out of last year. according to the times they did not receive any useful information. the fbi has not responded to fox news for request or comment. democrats desperate to keep focus on the mueller probe fox news legal analyst greg jarrett says a new chapter in the russia saga has already begun. >> now that the russia hoaxes been exposed to the witchhunt and that i call it the next step is the reckoning. people who abuse their positions of power to frame donald trump need to be held accountable and they will be looking at the actions of hillary clinton, paying for russian disinformation and feeding it to an all too willing fbi that is normally launching without credible evidence an investigation of trump but spying on the trump campaign, not just electronic surveillance carter page and probably others
but also mobilizing confidential informants to insinuate themselves into the trump campaign in order to gather incriminating evidence of a conspiracy that was nonexistent and they knew it was nonexistent. heather: attorney general william barr expanded his investigation into the origin of the russia probe and investigating several criminal leaks. add another one. the crowded 2020 democratic field is growing. colorado senator michael bennet officially joining the race as the 21st candidate. there could soon be 22. >> i will make my decision in the month of may and when we have something to tell you we will tell you. >> you are saying may 31st and then you are out.

of all time, i could go on and on. we have the hottest economy in the world, no question about it. my father is doing everything he said he would do which is put jet fuel on this economy and we are the envy of the entire world and it is amazing, when you look at the charade you've seen over the past couple days, we are doing so well and distraction that point. everything he said he would achieve for this country, it is hugely detrimental to the country. heather: donald trump's approval rating on the economy is at 56%. the time is 12 minutes after the top of the hour, joe biden isn't worried about china. >> china, come on, they are not bad folks.
w. bush, thank you for joining us, great to have you with us. as we begin, different areas where china is seen as being a strategic threat to the united states. what do you think of joe biden's comments? >> the communist, not bad people, that is one of the more staggering parts of that. a deeply irresponsible and deeply dishonest statement by somebody who is heavily conflicted. people should be asking biden to those comments have anything to do with your son hunter and chris heinz having the ability, $1 billion investment for the government run bank of china into investment firm five years ago. the fact of the matter is i think we have to have more transparency in washington dc.
any entanglements our elected officials might have on money from foreign actors or transparency, but also with regard to those lobbying on those issues. that the issue in washington dc and biden plays prominently in this. i don't trust them in china, china is a real threat to us. it is clear they want to displace us on the economic front, i have written about this. the struggle between the largest authoritarian police state and the largest free-market economy on technology. i have written about this for fox news. the 5g, the battle for 5g. heather: it is one of the first things donald trump campaign on in reference to trade in china. here is what he said in reference to biden's remarks. >> he's very naïve about china,
china during the obama years, took advantage of the country so badly, biden actually said that, that is a very dumb statement to make. heather: not only did biden say that about china but back in the day he and president obama in reference to russia because mitt romney said russia was a threat, they both said that's not a big deal to that brings us to what is going on today with william barr who cannot fathom why president obama didn't want the trump campaign about russian interference efforts. is this evidence of democrats only worried about setting up the trump administration? what do you think of that? >> highly unusual. if the fbi was concerned about foreign influence, meddling with a presidential campaign, what is normal protocol would have been for them to sit down with donald trump and inform him and ask to make sure none of this is taking place, they never briefed him,
never asked his assistants and as we saw in the new york times report the fbi was spying on the trump campaign and one of the things i think democrats are deeply concerned about and fearful of his we now have a real attorney general william barr who made it clear there was spying on the trump campaign, he intends to get to the bottom of it and is not going to stop until he gets to the bottom of where this information comes from. the fisa abuses and looking into illegal leaks from the doj and fbi. that is what we are starting to see. highly unusual behavior, probably criminal behavior by the fbi and william barr couldn't get to the bottom of it. heather: the obama administration received multiple warnings from national security officials from 2014-2016, trying to catch the russians, wouldn't you tell the people involved who could help you? >> if it was that big a deal the
yeah, i've had some pretty prestigious jobs over the years. news producer, executive transport manager, and a beverage distribution supervisor. now i'm a director at a security software firm. wow, you've been at it a long time. thing is, i like working. what if my retirement plan is i don't want to retire? then let's not create a retirement plan. let's create a plan for what's next. i like that. get a plan that's right for you. td ameritrade. ♪
heather: donald trump sounding off on this brings up the that would prompt the us military to get involved in venezuela. >> what are your redlines in venezuela? >> i don't want to say but we have lots of options and some of them are tough options. >> is there a tipping point from is a intervention? >> there is always a tipping point but something i would rather not do. people are dying. they have nothing.

the washington post caught heat for this headline. blue is farrakhan along with some far right leaders. after a flurry of criticism the post corrected his headline writing this. correction, louis farrakhan is an extremist leader who has espoused anti-semitic views. an earlier version of the story incorrectly included him in a list of far right leaders but the damage was done. plenty of reaction online. donald trump junior tweeting the gas lighting from democrats and their friends in the media trying to convince us the obama administration didn't spy on the trump campaign, almost as bad as the washington post attempting to get ladies into believing louis farrakhan is somehow right-wing. ben shapiro tweeting the words mean things anymore? farrakhan is far right, blatant
and isolate, a significant portion of the left. that headline not good. heather: the original story people pay more attention to that than the correction was the correction always tends to be in the background. >> a lot of people have views on this. we asked what you thought of the washington post labeling farrakhan as far right and many of you share the same opinion, john on facebook that i think the post doesn't know the right from the left, typical. if you are instagram says should have stated he is far gone. aaron on facebook says farrakhan is anything but far right. he is as far left as they come. heather: great to have you with us, see you later. the time is 20 minutes until the
