tv   The Daily Briefing With Dana Perino  FOX News  October 15, 2019 11:00am-12:00pm PDT

11:00 am
the ground. you are grounded, my friend, good to see you, brendan gaughan. i'm harris, "the daily briefing" starts now. >> dana: hello, i'm dana perino. hunter biden breaking his silence about his business dealings. the former vice president's son saying he's not hiding. >> it's been a lot of misinformation about me, not about my dad. nobody buys that. what i regret is not taking into account that there would be a rudy giuliani and a president of the united states that would be listening to this ridiculous conspiracy idea. >> dana: bret baier weighs in. plus, rudy giuliani responding after reports that john bolton called him a hand grenade over ukraine. lebron, did he foul out with the latest take? the superstar taking a shot at the executive who supported
11:01 am
democracy over communist china. waiting to see the new look from nasa, space agency set to unveil the astronauts, coming up on "the daily briefing." >> dana: taking questions after months of scrutiny over business dealings in ukraine and china, while his father was vice president. in a interview on gma, "good morning america," hunter biden admits to poor judgment, but denies he broke laws for working for a ukrainian gas company. >> i'm a human. did i make a mistake? maybe in the grand scheme of things, yeah. did i make a mistake based on some unethical lapse? absolutely not. >> dana: peter doocy is in we westervil westerville, ohio. pent-up demand from hunter biden, do you think that will answer the mail?
11:02 am
>> we should know, we have to wait a couple hours to see if somebody will bring it up. we got a hunter biden who wants people to know more about him, but he doesn't want people to know everything about him. >> i'm a private citizen, one thing i don't have to do is open up how much i make or did, it has all been reported. >> if your last name wasn't biden, do you think you would have be asked to be on the board of burisma? >> i don't know, i don't know. probably not. >> biden detailed his resume and defended his position on the board of the energy company, burisma, despite lacking any experience in the energy industry. >> i was vice chairman of the board of amtrak for five years, chairman of the board of u.n. world food program. i was a lawyer, for one of the most prestigious law firms in
11:03 am
the world. >> you defendant's exhibit have extensive knowledge about natural gas or ukraine itself, though? >> no, but i had as much knowledge as anybody else on the board, if not more. >> hunter biden is not somebody pretending he doesn't hear about the accusations against him, like when president trump alleged he got a $1.5 billion kickback from china. >> no one ever paid me $1.5 billion. if they had, i would not be doing this interview right now. >> president trump was watching that interview, at least heard about it and tweeted his response, he called the younger biden "really bad." dana. >> dana: we'll check back through the day and evening. thank you. bring in bret baier, ha anchor special report. timing of this interview, this controversy has been going on for three weeks now, although the issues have been going back several months or years if you
11:04 am
look at obama administration who expr expressed some concern about this. what about the timing of the morn of the debate? >> bret: i talked to a few democrats and they take two sides of it. one side is why do this today? why, just hours before a debate where potentially you wouldn't be asked a ton of questions about it. now it would seem the moderators and possibly even candidates on the stage will be compelled to react to what hunter biden said or how he said it or the whole thing. the other side i talked to here is yeah, clear the air, get it out there. put the onus back on president trump. you know, just put it out in the open. i will say that the biden camp usually has background briefing before debates, they cancelled that today. they said it is because the former vice president came early to the walk-through.
11:05 am
obviously it comes on the day hunter biden spoke out. >> dana: one thing he confirmed in the interview was that concern that people had, that you basically just getting cushy jobs because of who your father was. newt gingrich weighed in about the media protecting the bidenies. let's listen to him. >> not surprised about the news media, tried to protect the clintons, trying to protect joe biden and hunter. you don't exactly see the news media fall over themselves to protect any republican. i think in the end, the real challenge for vice president biden is the videotape of him saying that he threatened to take away a billion dollars when he was vice president unless they fired this prosecutor. >> dana: so there is no doubt there will be media angle to this. i'm wondering about the fact that hunter biden did the interview this morning. i do wonder about the idea that
11:06 am
elites take care of their own. hunter biden himself said he wouldn't have had the job if he didn't have the family connections he had. that might provide opening for the other 2020 democrats who don't have those kind of connections or didn't until now they are in a powerful position to be able to say that is exact kind of thing we want to fight against. >> bret: i agree with you. i don't know if it is going to come from elizabeth warren or somebody on the top tier there, but it could be from one of the candidates who is trying to make a mark in the lower tier of this campaign. tulsi gabbard, for example, has not held back attacking some colleagues on the stage before. tom steyer, new factor on the stage, who knows how he might weigh in tonight. that could be a factor. secondly, the answer that hunter biden gave, said i didn't make any money from the 1.5 billion from china and the investment firm. you make the money when you exit
11:07 am
the firm, i think there wasn't a follow-up question there, that is where you make the money in that situation. >> dana: all those questions and additional questions if you could hang around, we want another topic in with you. president trump's personal attorney rudy giuliani expressing disappointment in john bolton after reports emerge that bolton called giuliani a "hand grenade" on subject of ukraine. bolton reportedly telling former top aide to alert lawyer in the national security council about meetings being held with ukraine on mysterious investigation. john roberts is live from the north lawn with this story. john. >> good afternoon, this came out of the deposition of former white house official fiona hill yesterday. during that deposition, some of this leaked out, during that deposition, hill told the investigators former national security advisor john bolton
11:08 am
told her rudy giuliani was "hand grenade" in the issue that was going to blow everybody up. i spoke to giuliani about that this morning and he told me "i am disappointed in john, not sure he realizes i received this evidence as part of my representation of the president, all part of the evidence and suppression of evidence involving ukrainian collusion and origin of false information against the president." i also spoke to giuliani about $500,000 in fees he received from a company who was charged last week with campaign finance violation by southern district of new york. giuliani says he was paid retainer by part of the florida based fraud guarantee company for consulting on technology and regulatory issues. that money, giuliani says was for eight months work giuliani's firm did for the company and was paid in two installments, one in early september of 2018, the other late october of the same
11:09 am
year. giuliani insists that the retainer he was paid came from the united states and not from foreign sources. giuliani told me he has contracts with other companies worth far more than the one he had with the company fraud guarantee. on capitol hill is george kant for uerasia affairs and number two diplomat in ukraine. rudy giuliani accused him of working with former ambassador to ukraine, bonovic, . dana, this is another high-value deposition, what leaks from this one. >> dana: right, they are behind closed doors. john roberts, thank you. let's bring back bret baier, i get stuck on the company that the ukrainian guys came up with, fraud guarantee. i will have to rethink that and go back to the marketing drawing
11:10 am
board. john bolton was fired in august. he hadn't been heard from, except we know he is working on a book. this news about him being concerned came from testimony from fiona hill yesterday. what more do you know about that? >> bret: we don't know a lot, we don't have the transcript of the deposition. we have some reporting from behind closed doors that she said this was a problem. some sounds like it may be john bolton himself, but i think what you are going to see here is building a case that this shadow government as democrats call it, rudy giuliani was running was operating with some major concerns from some of the nsc staff and national security advisor and we'll see if john bolton comes out and illuminates this. he could be called to capitol hill. >> dana: there are threads, they
11:11 am
are trying to pull them together, if is hard for people to follow? democrats want it behind closed doors for protection. you get leaks coming out and trying to piece it together in a fair way, is not easiest thing to actually that is the biggest case, the problem that democrats have. they have to convince the american public this is worth while going down this road. they have to convince the american public that this is what should happen with the time on capitol hill. and to do that behind closed doors with leaks, starts to get a little shaky at times, especially we've seen reports have been wrong before as in the russia investigation. >> dana: tonight you will do special coverage with shannon bream after the debate, i assume ukraine will be a topic tonight? >> bret: i think so, i think overseas, the ukraine stuff, the syria stuff and how turkey is reacting, that is going to be a big topic and interesting to
11:12 am
hear candidates answer those questions. at 6, we'll have lindsey graham on, first interview after that meeting for 2-1/2 hours at the white house yesterday. we'll preview the debate tonight. >> dana: i won't be able to walk home after the five, i will watch you and shannon later on. bret baier, thank you. the n.b.a. most popular player breaking silence on the tweet that created uproar across the pacific and now lebron is getting the backlash. that is next. it's amazing what you can uncover with your dna results from ancestry. i was able to discover one cousin, reached out to him, visited ireland, met another 20 cousins. they took me to the cliffs of moher, the ancestral home, the family bar. it really gives you a sense of connection to something that's bigger than yourself. new features. greater details. richer stories. get your dna kit today at

11:16 am
>> dana: n.b.a. superstar lebron james is under fire for seemingly siding with china over the tweet supporting protest in hong kong. here is what james said go houston rockets gm daryl morey yesterday. >> i believe he wasn't educated
11:17 am
on the situation at hand and he spoke. and so many people could have been harmed, not only financially, but physically, emotionally, spiritually. just be careful what we tweet and what we say and what we do, yes, we do have freedom of speech, there can be a lot of negative that comes with that, too. >> dana: bring in miranda devine. i want to follow-up and read to you the tweets of clarification lebron james put out. let me clear up the confusion, i do not believe there was ramifications of the tweet. my team and this league just went through a difficult week. i think people need to understand what a tweet or statement can do to others and i believe nobody stopped to consider what could happened, could have waited a week to send it. miranda, i want your take. >> look at lebron james, money
11:18 am
talking, he earns billion aa year from nike, not year, lifetime from nike, several hundred million from the n.b.a. nike earns $60 billion from china, just do the math. you don't earn that money without paying the piper. niconscious eshs is furious, fear the n.b.a. has stunk this up royally. the china relationship is damaged, maybe permanently after daryl morey's tweets. >> dana: what is interesting, the n.b.a. is in a stronger position, they could because they are so popular in china, could use that platform to talk about freedom, what seems better way than everyday this is handed from the n.b.a. >> cow downing to china is worst thing they could have done. it is weak of adam silver and the fact is only 10% of revenue come out of china. 90% come from america and other
11:19 am
places. so why would you get off side with your fans in america? this is purely american game, why would you be so unpatriotic, weak and greatest basketball star that the world has ever seen, lebron james, been forever tarnished by this. i don't know if he can claw back. this man has been as woke as they come, social justice warrior, pretended he stood up no matter how difficult the sacrifice was. there he is, the hong kong protesters, are being shot, a teenager shot in the chest, they are being teargassed. president xi said shattered bones and broken bodies if this decent continues around china and lebron james is complaining about inconvenience for a week? it is sick and sad. >> dana: they seem not to understand why people are mad.
11:20 am
kanter, a turkish basketball player did not hold back and said this about turkey coming after him. i haven't seen or talked to my family in five years, they jailed my dad, my siblings can't find jobs, he gets death threats everyday. he said they keep trying to kid nap me in indonesia, and perhaps freedom is not free. good reminder, we have to be respectful of what we have in this country f. we have value to export freedom would be the one, a number one. >> you have to be vigilant. there is a price on freedom and lebron james has shown that he sold his soul for money. he should have been big enough and strong enough to risk his nike contract. as if china will turn their back on basketball. >> dana: exactly. miran did the da devine. up next, a new warning about your kids and how easy it is to crack the control you put on

11:36 am
>> 24 candidates is not enough, they should get more. bloomberg looks at field and says it is unefficient. >> dana: he thinks biden is in a free fall. >> biden is in trouble. >> dana: bloomberg doesn't have any organization in the other states, do you think this is realistic, could he get in? >> juan: oh, yeah, the money, he can self-fund forever. he's mike bloomberg. the negative side of this, i think a lot of people look at mike bloomberg and don't know who he is outside of new york. the name id you are talking about has a limited realm and he's going to need something more than that. the tell here, i go back to something the two of you were discussing, joe biden. people stance that joe biden is in a struggle and needs to do well tonight. bernie sanders needs to do well because of health issues. joe biden needs to step up his game in major way and the question is whether or not
11:37 am
attacks on hunter biden from president trump have dented him and why is it he's not doing better in terms of fundraising. >> dana: ari, question about strategy of getting hunter biden on the record this morning before the debate? >> foolish, i don't know why hunter biden agreed to go on morning before the debate. this should be controlled by the campaign, not free lancing by the son. i was told it was free lancing by the son. the campaign did not do this. it prompts question for tonight's debate. >> dana: ari fleischer and juan. yankees and nationals here represented and they'll work it out in the green room. the crisis in syria. turkey ignoring sanctions from the trump administration and pushing forward with attacks. steve harrigan is on the ground in northeast syria. how is it today, steve? >> dana, more complicated over the last 24 hours, two new

11:47 am
his attorney, kay, who is in addiction treatment himself said "watching and reading the sorted details of my own weaknesses unfold on the national stage has been nothing short of horrible. however, i am aware and respectful of the fact that my pain is entirely insignificant compared to the pain that the skaggs family is feeling and will continue to feel for the rest of their lives," and kay claims two angels officials were told about skaggs' drug use long before the pitcher died and kay said "it is time for everybody to stand up and take responsibility for their respective roles." angels president john carpino said, "we have never heard any employee was providing illegal narcotics to any player or any player was seeking illegal narcotics," eric kay says he

trafficker. he is not the target of the investigation. on the civil side, his family is saying, look, yes, this guy was supplying our son with this for years and no one did anything. here is what is interesting point about this. when eric kay, who you just saw on the screen, then director of communications hospitalized himself for overdose, his mom was in the hospital room and found texts going back and forth between him and tyler skaggs asking for drugs, in the room with vp of communications for the angels tim mead, that is why eric kay keeps maintaining these guys knew all the time and known for years. >> dana: the mlb, they are not in legal trouble, or are they? >> they could be. i see potential angle as the family sues the angels for wrongful death, negligence and omission on their part. angels will defer to the mlb and say mlb is responsible for the drug program that the athletes are in, right? it is joint mlb and mlb pa, not
