tv   The Story With Martha Mac Callum  FOX News  October 17, 2019 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT

4:00 pm
"special report with bret baier, " fair, balanced. the "the story with martha maccallum" starts right now. >> martha: high mike, everyone, thank you. tonight on "the story," so momentum is shifting on the pitch meant and the democrats strategy is moving as well. here tonight as well on what she writes in her book. 2020 democratic candidates, joining me, she says after what she saw on the stage tuesday nights, she is not leaving this democrats race. also, dr. drew is with us with a stunning take on the real story and he sees it from his position on the nation's opioid crisis. also tonight, a stunning revelation about this iconic world war ii photo. the daughter whose father never told her or anybody else about his real role in that moment.
4:01 pm
she will join me live coming up tonight. it stick around for that. but first, the big story in washington this evening, democrats moving the goal post on impeachment is clear that this investigation no longer revolves fully around the president's request to investigate bill by then. instead, democrats on the house intel committee are now phoning in on a new word which you heard it here last night and the word is extortion. speak out we have a crime, extortion, to essentially extort the president the new president of the ukraine. the president was attempting to extort that ukrainian government. >> martha: chief political examiner and a fox news contributor, byron, good to see you here tonight. the piece you wrote about this field a lot of our conversation where we read him passages of the transcript where he was clearly being pushed in certain
4:02 pm
directions for better answers you might say for adam schiff. >> you know, in the past democrats have had kind of a hard time pointing to a specific crime a specific law that the president violated and the whole ukraine matter. at the inspector general, the intelligence community had said the president may have committed a finance of violation which is kind of egg skier. they up with this idea of extortion which is the kind of tested the idea in their examination of kurt volker who is the former envoy to your crane. of basically, they wanted him to say that the ukraine -- the ukrainians felt terribly pressured by president trump who was demanding they investigate by then and 2016, and at the same time were holding aid from them. if they felt a very pressured and he said, they just did not have a period i there and it did
4:03 pm
not happen because the ukrainians did not know that the aide was being withheld. they thought things were going pretty well they got a visit from john bolton who's been the national security advisor. if they felt everything was actually on track and did not feel pressured by the president. >> martha: let me ask you about that, i brought that up with eric swalwell last night and since they got the last aid, they obviously knew that the agent wasn't coming through. what you say to that? >> you listened to him, it wasn't clear, i just president or everybody in the ukrainian government and as a matter fact -- >> martha: they said it writes? >> they learned about in an article in politico. in late august, remember the trump zelinski phone call was on july 25th and late august on the 28th on the 29th they read the
4:04 pm
article and then find out what happens. of >> martha: and a couple weeks, they had a released anyway. other decisions that were made, i want to place for you, this moment, for you that's caught a ton of attention and adam schiff said eric swalwell so said, alo your part of this extortion plan and he's confirmed it. i want to play it in fuller context and the way that he spoke about this today and get your thoughts on it. let's watch. >> president trump is not a big fan of foreign aid. never has been, doesn't like spending money overseas especially when it's poorly spent. that is exactly what drove this decision. i've been in the office a couple times with him, talking about this and look, this is a corrupt place. if everybody knows it's a corrupt place. plus, i'm not sure of the other european countries are helping them out either. the president didn't like that.
4:05 pm
so, those were the driving factors but he also mentioned to me past the corruption related to the dnc server. absolutely, no question about it. that said, that's why we held up the money. >> martha: so that's what we held up the money, i got a lot of attention, what's your interpretation of what you heard in there today? >> i want to thank you for playing the longer quote because i'm listening to other programs and all the play is that last quote as it this was done for the purpose of finding out more information about the dnc server. by the way, nobody has any evidence that the dnc server was, in ukraine. that's not a thing actually. what he said about the president attitude for foreign aid and about his attitudes towar ukraine is absolutely correct. and the president was by all accounts skeptical about that. you're a member the whole mess
4:06 pm
that involved ukraine and involved the mysterious black ledger that allegedly showed the cash payments to men afford to. ukraine just appeared to be in the president's mind, and many other peoples too, just a mess of corruption. >> martha: when he ask you about the two topics. one of, rick resigning. he's reporting around, that he became part of the sort of smaller teams and took the pressure on ukraine to continue to investigate corruption there. what you make of him leaving? >> he's definitely going to be talking to the house at some point. either that or resisting at some points. it's not clear, when rick perry announced his attention intento resign, clearly, the testimony today and the testimonies of other suggested that perry was involved with us. a few other officials, so
4:07 pm
clearly connected to that. >> martha: you know, it's interesting that the doj came out and said that the by him made them utterly confused and angry. because it was this linkage between the investigation and the pressure put on ukraine. if you don't help us with that investigation, you might not get to the money. they want -- they're very conscious, they want to be separate from the rudy giuliani part of the investigation. >> absolutely, we must say the investigation we know has gone into rational. barr was in italy looking for information, yes, there stopped out in ukraine and stop in australia and great britain. there's a lot of tentacles in the 2016 story. that durham will presumably be looking at. >> martha: they're trying to keep it in their own lane, so we will see. byron, think you very much. good to see you tonight.
4:08 pm
coming up next, mike just inside the room today. the u.s. ambassador for the european union. mike mccaul, on great to see yu tonight. back in the program, were pretty sure, we heard in river guard to the testimony that he was disappointed to construct to kind of go through the rudy giuliani, and this other group of people rather than go through the normal channels for the ambassador's office and state department. >> had to be a little bit careful, adam schiff has put a gag rule on this so i can only talk about it and made the public out of committee. in his opening statement. he refers to adam giuliana, sos the conjecture of the state permanent dough mike dubke part sometimes not. a common theme with the testimony that's
4:09 pm
been made public there's no quid pro quo and i think that's very clear from the conversation of the federal prosecutor. the review to the phone call and found there's no criminal violation, not talked about very much. if so, i don't think there's really any earth shattering they see and come out of these depositions in the top republican on foreign affairs, it's true to all of them. >> martha: let me ask you a little bit about turkey and syria situation. obviously, there's a lot of people in your party who do not like the way that this was handled. the president came out today after 120 hours cease-fire was announced after the discussions with presidents of turkey and vice president pence and secretary of state mike pompeo. he is with the president tsai. >> it's a great day for united states, it's a great day for turkey. great day for the cards.
4:10 pm
it's a great day for civilization. i just want to thank everybody. >> martha: how did you vote on the resolution where you are in favor of the president's action with regard to backing out of the buffer zone and do you agree with what he said there? >> i agree with -- i just got a phone call with a vice president updating me on the cease-fire negotiations. i commend the vice president and secretary pompeo for ending the bloodshed. i have my concerns with withdrawal from syria particularly as it pertains to protecting the homeland. i was at the white house meeting yesterday and so publicized, and i think after the speaker we got down the democrat state in the room, we had a very civil -- no mike, very sensible conversation. my number one position after we pulled out of iraq, you know, micah thoma martha
4:11 pm
, i didn't want to see the same thing happening in syria. i got insurances from the joint chief of staff to the president of the united states that we are not completely withdrawing from syria. that we will have a residual force to protect the homeland and i commend the vice president's are negotiations and a five day cease-fire after which there will be a permanent cease-fire in place. in the meantime, in the meantime, i the sanctions billed i've introduced with chairman and i know the senate counterpart have introduced a bill as well. if it fails at the sections will go for it appeared vice president pentz referred to which we call the s see if when we were working with him, so people have noted it's more of the turkish language for the group. the president said that he had a friends and presidents are the
4:12 pm
one in that he saw the light on this agreement. are you concerned about the way that we are talking about him right now? do trust him, would you agree with our? and speak out there are nato ally but i don't like the cell leadership. isaac is trying to return turkey to the ottoman empire and the fact that he the s400 i think it speaks volumes about what kind of alliance we have. were have a air base, it's a tricky line right now. i thickly have to work with them to resolve the issue in syria. secretary pompeo's traveling to europe with the coalition partners to try to reach some sort of stabilization agreements in syria. a very difficult complex foreign policy issue. >> martha: there's a lot of skepticism, as the pentagon whether there kurds are going to go along with the deal. we will see what happens moving forward to. oh, you very much.
