tv Shepard Smith Reporting FOX News September 17, 2019 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT
as you see corey lewandowski with the push back saying read that passage to me. he is really banking on that five minute limit. i'm worried there will be more boredom. >> dana: jessica tarlov and luc thompson. thank you for being here. >> we had a good time. >> dana: here is shep. >> shepard: and the hearing will continue in just a moment was corey lewandowski who was central in multiple instances where the special counsel was investigating where there president trump obstructed justice. the mueller report listing ten instances of possible obstruction of justice by the president. the fifth on that list involves corey lewandowski. as detailed in the mueller report, the president asked lewandowski to deliver a message to the then attorney general jeff sessions. asking lewandowski that he should publicly announce that mueller's probe was unfair to president trump. and to tell the public that he would meet with mueller and direct him to refocus the probe on future elections. not the 2016 election.
lewandowski told mueller that he never delivered the message and stored the note in a safe in his home. the president met with lewandowski again in july of 2017 and asked for an update. according to the mueller report. at that meeting president trump said that if sessions would not meet with lewandowski, then lewandowski should tell sessions that he was fired. of course since these men lewandowski had no role in government, he could not do that, and he did not. instead he told robert mueller that a former sessions senate aide would deliver the message. he did not either. corey lewandowski never work for the white house and does not have immunity from testifying before the committee today. still, the president told him not to say anything that was not in the mueller report. democrats contend that that is continuing the president's pattern of obstructing justice. republicans insisted that the questions have been asked and answered. john roberts is live at the white house for us this
afternoon. >> good afternoon to you. i think that we saw corey lewandowski strategy right from the get-go. with this hearing. doing his best to just stymie the democrats, particularly the chairman nadler and use whatever tactics possible to delay this. that's when nadler asked him a question about the mueller report and lewandowski went on and ran out the clock and the chairman's time by saying i don't have a copy of the report. i need a citation. i cannot answer a question about the report without having it in front of me. they went into an argument about whether to stop the clock or keep the clock going. you did not know if you are watching a hearing or football or a hockey game in terms of that. and i went on there. but lewandowski answering some questions from the republican side. clearly he is getting friendly questions from the republican side. but they go some distance to answering democratic hank johnson from george's questions about the statement to
that lewandowski wrote down that the president dictated to him. that was all well within the parameters of those mueller report. but lewandowski very careful to not stray outside of the four corners of the report. even though there was some mention made to the mention that he was talking about the lack of involvement with russia during the campaign and showed that not open up whatever claim of executive privilege he had or get rid of the claim of executive privilege? that is another point of contention, shep, because lewandowski did not work for the administration, does he legitimately have a claim of executive privilege? rob porter on the other hand who did not show up for today's hearing, has a more legitimate claim of executive privilege. and we have the statement from porter's attorney saying and this comes from brent bishop, mr. porter understands that the house judiciary committee has arranged for an empty seat with his nameplate at the hearing table today, mr. porter
had a conflicting and contradictory directive from two equal branches. congress has instructed to testify on the president has instructed him not to." he was the staff secretary, he was a member of the administration. therefore is subject to executive privilege even though he does not work here anymore. >> shepard: the president has not claimed executive privilege, has he? >> they said that they did not want him to talk outside of the parameters, at least for lewandowski not to talk out of the parameters of the mueller report, but clearly the white house saying that they did not want, or they told porter not to testify, not that they told congress that they did not want him to testify, and congress says that they want him to testify, so as long as there is the conflict, he will not show up before congress. not fully actually telling congress that they are claiming executive privilege. >> shepard: it is a gray area in there that does not exist. one more thing, context matters. and the context of the
appearance by corey lewandowski, testifying before mueller already has a reported a moment ago. but here is a tweet to that corey lewandowski sent out. "thank you real donald trump, no collusion, no obstruction. the american people know it, and i will continue to remind them. and then #senate2020 #standwithcorey ." and as political analysts have pointed out all day, one of the audiences is the president of the united states, who has already thanked corey lewandowski for his testimony today, the other would be the voters of that state to whom he is now appealing, so for corey lewandowski, based on what we have just seen, he is making the same this into may be a can event. catherine herridge is standing outside the hearing room. he has done very well by the
president's demand not to talk outside of the boundaries. >> throughout the hearing, what we have seen in the q&a, especially with the democrats, shep, that corey lewandowski has paused and asked them to direct him to specific pages within the council investigation. he has asked them to read those sections out loud. that is an effort not to read them out loud himself. and of course, all of this is running against the clock. in some cases in the q&a, it does not come to a logical completion, because with the pauses and the pointing to the pages effectively, the time has run out. but in the course of the question today, we have picked up a few new details that do appear to go outside of the boundaries of the special council investigation. in a series of questions from sheila jackson lee, she presses on whether he knew that the president had previously asked the white house counsel don
mcgann to deliver this statement, these notes to then attorney general jeff sessions. and corey lewandowski avoided answering that question. then in the exchange with congressman johnson, when he was asked if he had "chickened out and not delivered the message to sessions?" he said he did not deliver the message because he had gone on a family vacation which elicited a lot of laughter, actually in the hearing room. also i would add for the two witnesses who are not here today, the white house console said it is something called, and i think that john was referencing, constitutional immunity, which is designed to protect the office of the presidency, republicans and democrats. but the republican chairman of the community jerry nadler said that that does not extend to peripheral like in this case, he said rick dearborn, that was, and this is his language "a
corny privilege." rick dearborn matters because according to the mueller report, when lewandowski did not deliver the message to then attorney general jeff sessions, he tried to see if rick dearborn could be the messenger, but he also declined as well, shep. >> shepard: think you a lot. it appears that the hearing will begin again. at the bigger question for the democrats as they conduct the hearings is did the president obstruct justice? that is what they are trying to get to the bottom of. here we go. >> groundswell support for impeachment, ensuring that they want to tar and feather the president, running out to washington on a rail and deprive the american people of the president that they duly elected. that was not the case. so then, it was all about bringing the attorney general in. bill barr, he was certainly going to point out the inconsistencies and flaws in the analysis. while, that did not happen, because the majority wanted to insist that the unelected staff asked questions of the attorney general of the united states.
but no, we will go to court. we will win, we will force bill barr and don mcgann to testify. they are not winning in court. they are not here. it is a joke. for the last four months, the path the majority has taken us on is rambling from disorganized to just downright divvying. in june, speaker nancy pelosi said the house democratic caucus was, and i am quoting "not even close to an impeachment inquiry." that was to cnn. in july, jerry nadler said "an impeachment inquiry is when you consider only impeachment, that is not what we are doing. we are investigating all of this." but then in august in a cnn interview, nadler said "this is a formal impeachment proceeding." then in september when asked if the democrats were engaged in an impeachment inquiry, the house majority leader answered "no." it was the general lady from washington who said just
recently "we have been in the midst of an impeachment investigation." she said that to "politico." in the same story, the general from connecticut said "no, we are not in an impeachment investigation." then the gentleman from new york said when asked if the house was investigating impeachment, he said "well, we don't know whether an impeachment investigation has begun." it is just dizzying, last week it was jerry nadler who said "what we are doing is very clear. it has been very clear. it continues to be very clear. the speaker has backed us at every point along the way." this process has been about as clear as joe biden's last answer to race relations that involved turning on the record player. we don't know where we are aware we are doing. mr. lewandowski, i am not allowed by house rules to impugn the motives of my colleagues and speculate as to what might be
animating this bizarre circumstance, but those rules do not apply to you. so mr. lewandowski, do you have a thought as to why we continue to engage in a charade that is overwhelmingly opposed by the american people and fundamentally misunderstood by my democratic colleagues? >> you know, congressman, i think they hate this president more than they love their country. >> mr. lewandowski, mr. lewandowski, you are the campaign manager for the president's campaign when the obama-biden administration was notified that there might be efforts by the russians to interfere with our election, isn't that right? >> yes. >> can you describe for us the briefing that you got as the campaign manager to ensure that our system was resilient and american democracy was protected? >> there was no briefing provided by anybody from the
obama-biden administration. members of the intelligence community or the fbi to our campaign when i was present, or during my tenure as a campaign manager. >> that is baffling to me, our democracy is so precious. we have to cherish it. we have to protect it. and yet when the obama-biden administration knew that there might be nefarious efforts to interfere or co-opt or in any way disturb our democracy, they did not say anything to you. now, as you sit here today, having watched these facts unfold, do you have any rationale as to why maybe the clapper, brennan, comey, or by win obama-biden team did not have any reason -- >> it is unfathomable to me that they did not contact the nominee and inform them of potential
threats against the election process in 2016. >> we could be finding that out now. we could be having those people before a committee to find out what in the world happen that did not allow us to get those answers. one final question for you, mr. lewandowski, as an inspector general, have any of them accuse you a break in the law? >> >> no. >> no, but they have done that with james comey, and the leadership of this committee will not bring james comey before even though the inspector general said that his work compared the credibility and efforts of over 35,000 fbi agents and the brave people fighting for our country. it is a shame that you are here mr. lewandowski, jim comey should be sitting in that chair and answering questions about why he did so much damage to the fbi and our country including not giving you the briefing that you were entitled to. i yield back. to speak of the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from new york. >> thank you, mr. nadler. before i begin, let me remind
you, mr. lewandowski that this is not a primary campaign. you are not on the campaign trail yet. this is a house judiciary committee. act like you know the differenc difference. you never worked for the trump white house in any capacity, correct? >> that is right. >> but you do speak with president trump with some regularity, true? >> i think that is a fair statement. >> infect during the summer of 2017, according to testimony as special counsel, you are summoned to the white house by president trump on at least two occasions, correct? >> i don't believe the report says that, congressman, congressman. >> okay, you met with the president one-on-one june 19th, and then again july 19th 2017, correct? >> yes, i believe that that is accurate. >> let's get some clarity on what exactly you do for donald trump since you are not a government employee. you stated during the 2016 republican national convention
that "i got the reputation as a tough guy. that is my reputation." to give recall making that statement mr. lewandowski? >> i don't. >> it is in the public record, your job is to be a political enforcer, correct? >> no, i don't believe so. >> are you the hit man, the bad man, the look out, or all of the above? >> i think i am a good-looking man, actually. >> okay. president trump told you on juny deliver a message to attorney general sessions that would've ended the criminal investigation to the trump campaign, correct? >> i don't believe that's what the mueller report states, no. >> president trump wanted attorney general sessions to limit the investigation to future incidents of election for an interference, true? >> which pages that on, congressman? >> that is in the public record, in this hearing and in the mueller report. the white house has a legal
protocol for presidential statements under the presidential records act, they must preserve all memos, letters, emails, papers, like the note that he dictated to you. so you wrote on the president's message, which he then stored in a safe in your home, is that correct? >> yes, it is. >> you told the special counsel that was your standard procedure with sensitive items, correct? >> where is that referenced in the report? >> over to page 92. >> let me reference that, congressman. >> you don't have to. >> you said page 90? >> reclaiming my time, recording a message from him on june 19th, because he wanted to hide his message from a eventual disclosure, isn't that right? >> no. >> okay, but you never deliver the message to jeff sessions after that june 19th meeting, true? >> that is accurate.
>> you testified that he went on vacation, correct? >> i did. >> how long was your vacation, mr. lewandowski? >> it was lengthy, at least two weeks. >> at least two weeks. but you were summoned to the white house again on july 19th. 30 days after the original june 19th meeting, true? >> i believe that is accurate. yes. >> you are not on the vacation the entire time? >> i did not say that i was vacationing the entire time, but two weeks, congressman. >> but failed to deliver the message and it had something to do in part with your so-called vacation. the july 19th meeting occurred just a few days after new information came to light about russian operatives meeting with high-level trump campaign officials. when you were summoned to the white house after the july 19th meeting, by that time you still had not deliver the message to jeff sessions. you said to the president that you would do it soon according to volume two, page 93, correct? >> if that's what the report
says, that is accurate. >> president trump also asked you to deliver a message to attorney general sessions, and if you did not do it, he would be fired? correct? >> i think that's what was reported, yes. >> president trump wanted you to intimidate attorney general sessions, correct? >> you would have to ask president trump that. >> you stated that president trump asked you to take down the dictation "many times?" is that correct? >> it is. >> but on page two it states that "the president asked lewandowski to deliver a message to sessions, and said write this down." this was the first time that the president had asked lewandowski to take direct dictation, the first time? >> those are not my words, those are the investigative's words. >> where you lying about mueller or us? >> i did not lie. >> you are not here to tell the truth, you are here to
participate in a continuing cover-up. russia interfered with the election in sweeping and systematic fashion. the trump campaign welcome to that assistance at the highest level. there were subsequence acts of obstruction of justice. the american people deserve to know the truth. >> that was 19 seconds over, to help you, mr. chairman. >> the gentleman from louisiana, mr. johnson. >> mr. lewandowski, my colleague mr. jeffries started that question with an admonition, he said this is a house judiciary committee and not a political forum, it would be nice if you recognize that. i think it would be nice if all of the members of the committee would recognize that, because that is the reason that this has turned into such a farce. it has been said so many times today that this committee is so important to the country. it has one of the broadest jurisdictions over so many critical issues that are facing the country. you referenced some of this in your opening statement. and i among many of my colleagues are ready to get to the work of the american people.
but we are here today. no fireworks, a lot of disappointed people around the country who are really hoping that there would be fireworks. we are not surprised at all. i have a couple of questions just for clarification for the record. first, is there anything that has been said here, any question that you have been asked about her something that you would like to provide further comments on, just to clarify the record? >> no, sir. >> in questioning today, is the majority investigating any new allegation or issue or fact not already investigated by the house and senate intel committees or the special counsel office? >> not to the best of my knowledge. >> do you have any more information on any other matter related to either collusion or obstruction that you can offer to this committee that you have not already shared with congress or the special counsel's office? >> i don't believe that i have any new information. >> in your prior testimony to the special counsel is it true that you answered every question asked of you truthfully into the
best of your ability and recollection? >> to the best of my recollection, i did answer truthfully coming at us. >> a couple of things for further clarification, we are afraid that some of the record will be obscured today. so these are quick rapid fire, you agree that there is no evidence that the president intended to obstruct justice? >> i do. >> do you agree that the president has been harassed politically since the day he took office? >> yes, i do. >> do you agree that the president supporters have received a vastly different treatment than the supporters of hillary clinton? >> unequivocally. >> you call this a witch hunt, i wonder if you would like to elaborate any further? >> i think that this fake russia collusion narrative is the greatest crime committed against the american people in our generation, if not ever. this is a president who was duly elected by the american people, and certain bodies refuse to accept the election results. if this were done by different
president to a different party the same way it was done to donald trump, that person would already be thrown out of office and people would be in jail. but when you support hillary clinton and barack obama there are a different set of rules. the american people find it very unfair, and there is no accountability at the highest levels of the government for the fisa abuse applications that transpired. spying on americans, in violation of the fourth amendment, or the lives that were ruined because they simply wanted to support a candidate for the president of the united states. and i think it is shameful. >> we do as well coming on that as a recitation of the issues keeping us up at night. we are greatly concerned about -- >> shepard: mike emanuel, the chief correspondent live there for us this afternoon. >> it is pretty much what you would expect from corey lewandowski who is a no-nonsense pretty tough guy. loyal to the president. and basically the white house said coming into the hearing that the president was declaring executive privilege. so an easy out for corey lewandowski has been that you have to ask the president if you want an answer to the
question when the democrats pressed him on specific matters. pressed him on specific matters of the robert mueller special report, republicans using corey lewandowski to make the case to the democrats on the panel saying it is time to move on from the russia probe, there was no collusion. so they should wrap this up and get on with other business that basically helps the american people. so basically what you would expect, i think from this type of witness and this type of hearing, a lot of politics. a lot of speechifying on pop next capitol hill, but republicans and democrats making their point, with the huge audie today. >> shepard: mike emanuel live on capitol hill. mike, thanks. there is very big news happening in israel at this moment. polls have now closed. this is the c10, polls have now closed in israel. and we are getting the first exit polls out of israel, and there are enormous questions

>> shepard: breaking news, the polls are now officially closed and the election that will determine whether the longest-serving leader in israel's history, the prime minister benjamin netanyahu will remain in power, and brand-new exit polls have come out indicating neither he nor his opponent has the votes needed to secure the majority. israel of course is a key u.s. ally, and netanyahu has led the country for more than a decade. but now faces voters for the second time in less than six months after he failed to gain a enough support against smaller rival parties, the coalition government, after this he called for the new government. the prime minister's challenger is the former israeli army chief benny gantz, he told voters we will bring change without corruption without extremism. that is a jab at netanyahu facing possible corruption charges. he denies that he has done
anything wrong. but is promised that if he is reelected, he will do a number of things. he will annex parts of the west bank and israeli settlement, and some analysts say that that would jeopardize attempts to reach a two state solution between the israelis and the palestinians, the two state solution instead and diplomatic fallout could spread beyond the region. in addition prime minister netanyahu will also have the opportunity if he has prime minister again to input, to put into place new laws against him being prosecuted for the crime with which he is accused. if he is prime minister again, he can declare that he cannot be prosecuted. trey yingst reporting live from netanyahu headquarters in tel aviv tonight, trach? >> shep, based on the preliminary exit polls, this is not a good day for israeli prime minister netanyahu, in
israel you need 61 seats in the parliaments referred to as the connectix in order to govern, none of the polls that have come out from three of the main israeli channels put benjamin netanyahu over the 61-point threshold, there is a right block and a left block, the left block led by benny gantz, and benjamin netanyahu of the other party, there is mixed pulling as to who will pull off a victory tonight. if you polls that actually have the prime minister winning when you look at the blocks by two seats, but it still does not get him to the majority. it turns us to a third-party important to look at which is that our house of israel party led by the former defenseman, he is considered the kingmaker. he is going to get anywhere from 8-10 seats based on the preliminary action results, this will give him the ability to decide basically who is going to be the next prime minister of israel. a little bit about him, he has had a personal issue with
prime minister netanyahu for eight years, they have not gotten along. and based on interviews leading up to election day, lieberman said that he is looking to form a national unity government, something that the prime minister benjamin netanyahu has come out against. he is looking for a secular liberal government, lining with the blue and white party of benny gantz, we will be standing by to see what happens in israel, because president ribble and of israel will make a final decision as to who he will give the nod to try to finish a government, they will then have 28 days to try to put together a government, if neither is he able to do so, you could see israel go to a third round of elections this year. >> shepard: lots of interesting things about elections in israel, one of them is this, in the united states if you are running for an office, the last thing they do is stand up and go, we are going to lose this thing. you must come out and vote. but in israel, that's exactly what happens. the last time he ran.
what about this time? >> that is exactly right. the netanyahu campaign tactics were nothing short of orwellian, use of the prime minister doing facebook live and tweets throughout the day providing incorrect information to viewers in israel, additionally you saw a number of voters listening too many of the comments by the prime minister saying that the israeli president was encouraging israeli arabs to get out and vote for the left that will put netanyahu's side in the negative. additionally, another piece of misinformation provided by the netanyahu campaign was that arabs and left-wing voters were coming out in larger numbers than normal, there was no evidence to support those comments. so you saw once again the president trying to come out on election day with a megaphone watching through the streets of jerusalem telling voters to get to the polls because there was an activity going on, but there was no evidence provided by the campaign. certainly something that voters
will be talking about here for the rest of the week as they look forward to see who the president of israel will give the nod to in order to form a coalition government. here in tel aviv and jerusalem, you can expect the number of meetings as both try to do some forced trading behind the seeds to see if they can get the nod by a president ruben rivlin going forward. >> shepard: it is 10:30 there, how many more hours before we know what the voters have decided? at least who gets most of the percentages? >> we will find out thursday morning the final results. the exit polls do indicate mixed results, basically a deadlock here in israel, but again, thursday morning will be the key time to look at to see whether or not the blue-and-white party comes out on top? >> shepard: late wednesday here in the united states, thank you very much, trey yingst, our man in jerusalem. the justice department filing a
lawsuit against nsa whistle-blower edward snowden over his new memoir "permanent record." the book went on sale today, accusing ed snowden of violating the nondisclosure agreement with the cia and the national security agency. he worked as a contractor for both of those agencies before he leaked classified information about government surveillance programs which let us all know what the government is doing. according to the department of justice, he failed to submit his manuscripts to the agency that claims is a common practice for former contractors and the department of justice has filed the suit to stop him from getting any funds or money from the book sales until the case is resolved. ed snowden tweeted in response "this is the book the government does not want you to read." he claims that he had no choice but to leak the information about the u.s. surveillance programs, he has been living in russia to avoid prosecution here in the united states. employees in new zealand are legally allowed to bring a

jessica who participated in the activities is back as well. you have been busy. >> yes, i made a movie. which is why i am here. i'm not just here on a random tuesday. >> shepard: back in the day we called the kids penelope and esmeralda, because we did not want to say their names, and we did not mention what your old man did, your husband. he is the commissioner of the nfl. so that makes you the first lady of the nfl. >> i did a movie on the ladies that i would consider the first ladies of the nfl. >> shepard: that's where i was going. four ladies. the steelers, the bears, and the chiefs, and pittsburgh steelers. speak alliance. >> shepard: yes, i skipped one. i watched the movie this morning, i even got a little bit emotional here and there. tell us what it is about. >> let's back up, so about two years ago, people in the nfl were talking about the hundredth anniversary of the league and
what to do and how to celebrate it. so i get to sit with these amazing four when men who are owners of the iconic teams. all in their 80s and 90s. and i am the luckiest person to be at a dinner or a game, and they tell the most incredible stories about the history of the league. to some of them have been there for a 50, 60 years, virginia mccaskey is 96 years old, her father was one of the founders of the league. so her first memory of the nfl is from when she was four years old, 1927, she remembers her first game. and so asked if anybody recording this for history's sake, and nobody was. and the reason was that the women themselves, i like to say that they are from the generation of weed, and we are in the generation of me where you talk out post a selfie, they did not want to talk about it. they would be fine telling them pr publicly. so i did not know that that would be the hardest part about
making this movie was convincing the four of them that there was an audience for that. and they had to recognize that their stories had value and the people were going to enjoy it. so finally it took almost a year, and i think that they finally gave in and said, okay, we will do it. >> shepard: it starts with a panel discussion, the four and jane, and that carries through the movie, and then segments about their teams and their families. it is in my opinion, it is a great movie for football fans, because it is some of football's greatest moments. the immaculate conception with the steelers, and also the family part of it all, and how important these women are. >> when we first started it i wanted it to have a lot of football, nfl film, the best of the best. and they have these archives. and i knew i wanted a lot of football and history, because those are the stories, but it is a movie for a nonfootball fan. i have so many friends who are not football fans who have watched it and said how can you not learn from people who have
lived lives like this in their 80s and 90s and have such wisdom and they are so hardworking and dedicated and committed to these communities. so i learned a lot just spending time over the course of the season with the four of them. and i do feel like it is a movie, it is not just a cliche, great family affair, but a movie to watch with your kids and your grandparents, because isn't that how we share football anyway? >> shepard: it is. and we talked about how special thanksgivings are, and then an amazing moment with mrs. ford, watch list. >> for martha and her board, running an nfl franchise is not limited to just game day. >> good morning. we have meetings two or three times a week during the season. we are at training camp together, so that we can talk about players that we see. it is just such a big part of our lives. i don't know where it begins or ends. >> i just want to say first that it was quite a big game.
this will be a happy evening. >> [laughs] >> i'm so impressed by the way that she handles things, runs the team. it is involved. she was out at practice last week and 90 something degrees, stood out there the full practice. i mean, in better shape than a couple of the players out there. >> shepard: i have never heard him say so much. >> and smile so much. [ding] just so people know, mrs. ford is a great example, her husband died at 88, they got married when she was 19. she was a firestone tire eris, mirroring bill ford, the merger of motown, and they live to this incredible football like for 50 something years but he passed away, and the media in detroit said there is no way she can ru. she held a press conference and said i would like to get to the lumbar due trophy too. she fired the manager and the head coach, and she is still running the team day today. >> shepard: there is a clip of
that firing during the movie, and she is very much in charge. i love the stuff, as you know, i am a giants fan, but i am also a pittsburgh spirits fan, because geo is a huge steelers fan, and they embody that city. she is an icon. she and her family do so much for the community, and she still lives on the north side. >> for her to talk about it encapsulated why we love football so much in this country, because she talked about the ' 70s was having such a hard time on the downhill sid side, but the steelers were up, then they crossed and from then it was it. you cannot think of pittsburgh without the steelers, and she is a caretaker for that community, they care a lot about the fans and so much about their team members, and i just found that she really is kind of the soul of it. >> shepard: she proved it. a lifetime of sundays is the
movie. how will people see it? >> you can watch it on friday on the nfl network, on at 3:00 eastern. you will have to record something. but you can also get it. do you have the espn plus app? >> shepard: of course. everybody does. >> i'm a little bit obsessed. have you been watching "peyton's places?" >> shepard: no, but i have been watching the rebels play football. >> it is on the espn plus app. >> shepard: we will talk about eli in a minute, and an addition of "skinnerville," jane has baked brownies, and we will have old-fashioned "skinnerville" on a day when we needed. >> in a fancy new home. >> shepard: "breaking news" changes everything. here in the studio. ♪ ♪
