for a few days. he may get a little boost. certainly has everybody talking. leland: aoc brings bernie twitter and fund raising which is a powerful tool. we'll see you tomorrow. arthel: brexit on the brink, as the british parliament votes to delay a final decision, dealing another blow to prime minister boris johnson. it was a day of high drama and anticipation. the postponement ensure that's the future of britain is up in the air. welcome to america's news headquarters, i'm arthel neville. eric: hello, thank you for joining us. i'm eric sean. can you figure this out? lawmakers withholding their support for the latest brexit deal as they gathered on a saturday for the first time in 37 years. parliament voting to delay a decision, yet again. the prime minister facing a deadline hours away from now to ask the european union for even more time. ashley webster has been reporting live from london and
has the latest as the demonstrations on both sides continue. hi, ashley. >> reporter: yeah, hi there, eric. as in everything else that's been associated with brexit, we had another if you like nonevent. it was supposed to be a big saturday, the first time they've met in 37 years on a saturday in parliament and yet it all kind of went out with a fizzle. that's because boris johnson before they could vote on the latest eu deal that was forged two days before, an amendment was passed to force him to ask for a third delay and no approval of his plan. despite that, the prime medicine r officer saying delaying this deal is not good for the country. take a listen. >> i will tell our friends and colleagues in the e. exactlu exactlywhat i've told ee last 88 days that i served as prime minister, that further delay would be bad for this country, bad for our european union, and bad for democracy.
>> reporter: well, as it is written in law, eric, now the prime minister by law should by 11:00 tonight, midnight brussels time, requests an extension from the october 31st deadline, back to january 31st of 2020. the prime minister says not going to do it. but other colleagues across the other side of the bench in parliament said you have to, including ian blackford of the scottish national party. he says if not, you're going to be in court. take a listen. >> any failure of the prime minister, who thinks he's above the law, well, prime minister, you'll find yourself in court. >> reporter: well, that brings up a very interesting question, what happens now. that's what everyone is asking. it's not always certain, that's for sure. if boris johnson writes that letter to brussels tonight, technically he could make that request but in some other way say you know what, you i don't
really mean it, we don't want an extension and still be within the letter of the law. brexit has just been one mess since it was passed three and-a-half years ago and here we are, still no further forward. bark to you. eric: absolutely astounding and quite a mess. thank you. arthel: joining us for more on this is lord john taylor, a member of the house of lords in the british parliament. lord taylor, thank you for joining us. >> greetings from london. arthel: greetings. many good friends over there. why indict fail? why is -- why did it fail? why is brexit getting so much opposition. >> we had the referendum to leave the european union three and-a-half years ago and they're still talking about it. they say they need more time. we've had three and-a-half years. the prime minister wants to get on with it, honor the vote of the british people. this is what winston churchill
called activity, not action. delay is more and more dither. we need to decide, not slide as we continue to do. arthel: you have tens of thousands of pro protesters shd up at parliament square to protest it. they want another vote. they are anti-brexit, can you explain why? >> that is anti-democracy. the people voted to leave the european union. very lots of information -- we have lots of information but we need more revelation. information can be incorrect. a lot of the argument is about how much money and the finances. yes, that's important. but you know, it's not just about profit. it's about the prophetic, the future of our children and grandchildren. it's not just about profit. arthel: i know you're saying that the people voted, but they've had three years and it wasn't voted in by a wide margin first of all and they've had three years and they're looking to see what could possibly happen, more time to kind of check under the hood of the car
to see what might happen if the u.k. exits from the eu. so there they are. they're sitting out there, still protesting. so maybe they want another shot at a this, to say perhaps we should stay. >> how many shots do we need? this wasn't a snap decision. we talked about this for three and-a-half years, not three and-a-half months, three and-a-half years. the people are sick and tired of it. people want to talk about housing, education, the health service. brexit has sucked the oxygen out of other issues. we need to get on with this now. the people have spoken. let's act upon that. arthel: meanwhile, he says he's not giving up, is prime minister boris johnson more determined now or emboldened or is this a political blow for him. >> i think he's more american. i'm married to a texan. arthel: we know about your
wife. >> lady laura is an amazing lady. this won't throw him off. he wants to carry out the mandate of the british people. people are angry with parliament for delaying democracy which is what they are doing. arthel: will the u.k. leave the european union with no deal? >> well, we want to avoid no deal. but the way the fractures traiting -- the danger of no deal. europeuropean union is an empiry man.all empires fail eventually. they always fail because they over-reach, over-tax, put too much burden on the member nations. the european union will eventually collapse. this is just the beginning. that's a prophecy. arthel: okay. we'll come back on to see if your prophecy holds true in the future. >> it will. you watch this space. arthel: i should have prefaced this by saying you are pro-brexit but i think our
viewers have been able to glean that from your answers. >> oh, you guessed? [ laughter ] arthel: let me go to your wife, your lady laura taylor, who you said she is a texan. >> she is a texan. arthel: where in texas, by the way? >> houston, texas. arthel: h town. >> she also lived in wisconsin for a while but texan raised. arthel: you can't leave texas once you were board and bred there. >> exactly. arthel: let me go there with you. since your wife is a texan, lady taylor, tell us why should americans care about brexit? >> well, you know, this isn't just a british thing, whether you live in miami or minnesota take, this is relevant to americans too. because the thing about brexit is we want to do more trade outside of europe with the rest of the world and our biggest trading partner outside of europe is america but the reason we can't do more with america is because of the -- well, the straistranglehold of the europen
union rules. brexit will allow us to do more trade with americans and we have a president who is very keen on britain. his mother was british. and -- arthel: excuse me. will you have that leeway to negotiate with america the way you would like to if there is no deal on this brexit? >> i think we can get over this, because your president is a man who gets things done. it's about the art of the deal and i think he wants to deal with nations, not empires. the european union is an empire. he doesn't want to deal with an empire, he wants to deal with an individual nation and he's already said that. he's keen to do work and trade with britain. arthel: very quickly, you made your predictions about the empire falling but any idea of when this brexit thing is going to be settled and how it ends? >> i think it will be sooner than later. the european union don't want to lose britain which is why they make it so difficult because they think france and germany and other countries will follow quickly. i would like to think by octobee
deadline the prime minister is looking to. arthel: britain, the european union doesn't want to lose the u.k., perhaps they'll come up with a deal that works in your favor. so we will see. >> exactly. absolutely. i agree with you. arthel: well, i don't know. you know this far better than i but for now we leave it there. lord john taylor of warick, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. eric: overseas, there could be a cease fire in name only in northeastern syria. turkish backed syrian fighters have been clashing with forces despite the cease fire that was agreed to earlier this week. kurdish forces were supposed to withdraw from the border. there has been no sign of that. both sides are exchanging blame for failing to abide to the deal. steve hair gunma harrigan has m. >> reporter: there is a great deal of violence going on along
the border between syria and turkey, despite a cease fire negotiated by vice president pence with turkey's president erdogan on thursday, both sides blaming each other for the cease fire violations. erdogan has given it a five day cease fire. he said after that pause in the fighting, if all kurdish fighters are not cleared out of the safety zone, he has vowed to crush the heads of kurdish fighters. here's erdogan. >> if it works, it works. if it doesn't, the minute 120 hours expire, we will continue from where we left off and keep crushing the heads of the terrorists. >> reporter: this turkish offensive has created more than 160,000 refugees, these are kurdish families trying to flee the fighting, not getting much help, just trying to get away from the shells. turkey's ambition is to create a huge safety zone, 20 miles inside the border of syria,
275 miles long, as u.s. forces have pulled out of the region, russian forces have moved in. they patrol the area between the two sides in some strategic cities and turkey's president goes to russia on tuesday to meet with russia president, vladimir putin. back to you. eric: thank you so much. president trump is receiving harsh criticism from an unlikely source. mitch mcconnell blasting the president's decision to withdraw the forces from northern syria that led to the turk irk turkish invasion. he writes, quote, with drawing u.s. forces from syria is a grave strategic mistake. the pullout risks repeating the obama's administration reckless withdrawal from iraq. for more on this, jim walsh joins us, international security expert. jim, the reports of war crimes, genocide, ethnic cleansing, chemical weapons used on civilians. how big a setback do you thick
ithinkis a result of the presids withdrawal of our forces. >> i think it's worse than it should have been. i'm a supporter of the basic idea. i don't think we should have gotten in syria to begin with. i think we should get out. but eric, as you know, in life sometimes you have a good idea but it comes down to execution and if you execute it poorly, you get bad results. and i think in this case the president acted rashly, essentially 24 hours notice. another way to have handled it would have been to do this over a period of months to negotiate with the turks, to get concessions for them as a long as they're getting something out of it, to take care of our friends, to slowly wind down our military bases so we don't have to bomb them to keep them from falling into the hands of others, a way to deal with the isis prisoners l. these are all things that could have been done after deciding to withdraw but doing it as part of a process, rather than a snap decision implemented in a matter
of hours. i think it's really the implement aation that has generated all these negative outcomeses, the criticism, the deaths, the accusations against the u.s. when, again, a good idea could have turned out better, had it been more properly executed. eric: you think erdogan would have offered any concessions when he wanted to put the 20-mile buffer in there and wanted to get the kurds out. >> yeah, he wantsdz wants the kurds out. he can't get them unless the u.s. moves. that gives the u.s. leverage, to put us in a position to say you want us out, okay, fine, but x, y and z for us. similarly with the russians. that's what bargaining is about. i didn't think we should be on the ground to begin with. once you're on the ground, then you do have some bargaining leverage. we didn't have to leave. when we leave is up to us and so i think a more detailed plan, a better process would have yielded a better result. again, i don't b think w think d
be there. eric: why? we went of after isis. what would you have rather seen than have american boots on the ground when you have the isis threat. >> mitch mcconnell compares this to iraq. these two things are completely different of. we invaded iraq, created a new government, supported the government. syria is our enemy. syria, we're opposed to syria. we're sticking forces into syria that no one wants to -- none of the parties wants them in syria, other than the kurds, and so that's a completely different situation. to your question, eric, it seems to me that the russians and the iranians and the syrians, they hate isis, they may t hate isis more than we do because they're fighting in syria. the russians seem to have no problem bombing hospitals and schools and civilians, i'm pretty sure they would continue to kill a a lot of isis. in other words, that's a job we don't have to do when other people are willing to do it. eric: how about keeping or
having the kurds back, i mean, watching their back and protecting their back? >> yeah, i mean, i think that's what -- see, here's what happens. you go in, you have all these people that say the answer to every foreign policy problem is to send u.s. troops. then you send the u.s. troops, you make partnerships and if you leave, you leave them high and dry. if you didn't intervene in the first place, you won't have this problem. once you do, i think we have some responsibility to the kurds, that's why i say execution matters. we could have gotten some of them out of there, we could have arranged for safe passage, could have brought some to the the us, we could have negotiated with more leverage to make this less blood and more stable. the kurds are going to suffer for this, no doubt about it. did the kurds think we were going to stay forever? no, both parties knew this was about self interest, self interest for the kurd, self interest for the u.s. the kurdish self interest was trying to maintain some
territory and eventually move to a kurdish state at some point in the distant future. both sides went into this their eyes wide open. it's unfortunate. it could have been handled better. i don't think we should stay there forever. eric: finally, the senate majority leader writes this. is it really the case that the united states would prefer that russia, syrian and iranian forces control the region rather than turkey o our nato ally. we need to use sticks and carrots to bring turkey back in line. in addition to limiting turkey's incursion, encouraging an enduring cease fire, we should create conditions for the reintroduction of u.s. troops and move turkey away from russia and back into the nato fold. do you see any possibility of a reintroduction of troops, do you see getting turkey away from russia. >> well, that's a separate question. i think that's up in the air. and erdogan, he says one thing one day and then he flips and then he flips again. i think the u.s., turkey
relationship is one thing. whether we should go back inside a civil war, the answer is no. i mean, apparently senator mcconnell has not followed events in syria. i hate report this but the syrians won. i think the russians who bombed the civilians are war criminals. they have won the war. us sticking 200 troops in syria isn't going to change the facts on the ground. why pour troops into a situation where you've already lost essentially, makes no sense to me. eric: we do still have somes troops on the ground. we must think of them and right you are. >> absolutely. eric: the fact that there's not been an international outcry over what putin has been doing in syria for so long is outrageous and appalling. jim, thank you, as always. arthel. >> thank you, eric. arthel: senator bernie sanders is back on the campaign block and returning with a high
profile endorsement. a live look there in new york city, long island city there, just outside of manhattan. tiffany cabin is up there backing senator sanders, as the presidential hopeful suffered a heart attack earlier this month and now senator sanders is hoping to get a boost from another lawmaker with a strong voice. allison barber is live from the rally in long island city, new york with more. hi, allison. >> our apartments and homes were crumbling -- >> reporter: this is senator sander's first campaign event since he was in the hospital recovering from a heart attack. there are thousands of people here, as far as the eye can see and even outside of the the gates, the official area for this rally. people have filled the streets. senator sanders is coming back today with significant endorsement, representative alexandria ocasio-cortez is expected to endorse sanders at the l rally today. the two have worked closely together on things like climate
change. age has been somewhat of a factor in this race. more questions have come up since senator sans deers sufferesanders sufferedthe hear. the current president is over the age of 70. the top three democratic candidates will be over 70 on inauguration day. michael moore spoke a while ago, and criticized discussions related to sanders' age and health, he said if you want to talk about health, talk about the health of the planet. and he said talk about outdating policies, specifically things like the electoral college, a $7 minimum wage and the gender pay gap. all of it got enormous cheers here. we haven't heard yet from alexandria ocasio-cortez. sounds like she's being introduced right now. we expect to hear her endorse senator sanders any minute now. arthel: and you'll bring us the news if she does. thank you very much, allison.

in the capital amid a surge in violent protests over an increase in metro fairs. he protesters clashing with police. the rioting being called the worst in decades. ryan khokut has more on all of this. >> it has been 12 days since hundreds of chileans took to the streets. the protests look like they're getting bigger. the ca capital of chile was literally enveloped in chaos yesterday as the protesters directed their anger at office buildings, busses, police stations, police cars, and in particular subway stations, with hundreds of thousands of people there caught on the subway yesterday evening as they tried to make their way home, because they had to turn -- they had to shut the subway down. that you appears to have been the last straw for the president of chile, after a night of rioting early this morning he
declared a state of emergency. >> a in democracy, a state of rights such as the one that all chilchileans in our country has built with so much effort, there should be no reason for the riots we have seen in our city. >> protesters are angry for raising fares for public transportation. a ticket used to cost $1 for the subway, it now costs $1.17. that may not seem like a big increase to you and me, but it clearly enraged the protesters, manmany who are in high school d college. it is one of the most stable countries and it is also the most unequal. the issue of the rising cost of living has become a political flashpoint. you look at the subway today, the police say that they're going to need a couple more days
to get it up and running. there's too much damage. the president of chill you lay says while he sympathizes with people that the fare increases mean some people won't be able to take public transportation,s he's also saying there can't be this violence and the army will stay on the streets until it's over. back to you. eric: ryan, thank you. arthel: back at home, democrats ready to continue their push to impeach the president, as the white house defends comments made by acting white house chief of staff, mick mulvaney, about a quid pro quo. the latest from washington, up next. chevy's the only brand...

she has a strong following. if she makes news, we'll definitely bring it to you. meanwhile, the democrats are gearing up to question the top u.s. diplomat to ukraine next week as they push ahead with their impeachment inquiry. meanwhile, acting white house chief of staff, mick mulvaney is riding out the storm over his ukraine comments. mark meredith is live at the white house with this story. mark. >> reporter: president trump continues to blast democrats for their decision to move forward with the impeachment inquiry. but democrats insist there is plenty to investigate,s especially after the comments made by as you just mentioned acting white house chief of staff mick mulvaney who said in the decision to delay money going to ukraine, possibly it was tied to discussions about what happened in the 2016 u.s. elections. here's what mulvaney had to say. >> it is described as a quid
pro quo, it is funding will not flow unless the investigation into the democratic server happens as well. >> we do that all the time with foreign policy. >> reporter: those comments really shocked many people here in washington. mulvaney tried to clarify his remarks the same day, walking them back. he put out a statement, this is what he said. let me be clear, there's was abs absolutely no quid pro quo between ukrainian military aid and the 2016 election. president never told me to withhold any money until the ukrainians did anything related to the server. kevin mccarthy said he was glad he had a chance to clarify comments. we heard from a number of lawmakers who say they were shocked by mulvaney's comments on thursday, among those was francis radio any rooney who sal not run for another term. here's what he had to said earlier today, right here on our network. >> the president was saying no
quid pro quo. i'll give the guy the benefit of the doubt. i was hearing the testimony at the impeachment hearings. l come to find out there was a clear quid pro quo, admitted to by his chief of staff. >> reporter: we heard from congressman adam schiff who chairs the intelligence committee also on thursday. he said following mulvaney's remarks lawmakers from both parties should be outraged. >> things have just gone from very, very bad to much, much worse. the idea that vital military assistance would be withheld for such a patently political reason for the reason of serving the president's re-election campaign is a phenomenal breach of the president's duty to defend our national security. >> reporter: house republicans say they believe impeachment inquiry should be much more public and they would like to see testimony happening not only publicly but also as long as all
full members of the house could listen in. democrats say their work will continue as it has been right now. arthel. arthel: mark meredith, thank you. eric: as we mentioned a moment ailing ago, we're waiting for the so-called bernie back-rally in new york city, hitting the campaign trail, about to get a big endorsement for those of his political stance. congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez, she is about to endorse him. no major surprise but she is choosing him overs massachusetts senator elizabeth warren. more on this and the impeachment proceedings, inquiry in washington, andrea rosario joins us, congressional reporter. do you think this has an impact to try to re energize sanders supporters? >> this couldn't come at a better time for senator sanders, especially in the aftermath of the heart attack that he sustained a couple weeks ago and as he lags behind senator warren
in the polls. alexandria ocasio-cortez is a superstar among the progressive base. this could be the jolt his call pain needs at this point. eric: we're expecting the the senator to speech at the rally. when he does, we'll bring that to you. the impeachment inquiry 57bd and the acting chief of staff's remarks about a no quid pro quo, what do you make of that? >> well, look, impeachment is one of the serious political and legal challenges any president could deal with and it depends on a competent messaging strategy from the white house so congressional republicans could successfully defend him against the charges. mick mulvaney has made it more difficult for republicans on cap l tolcapitol hill to defend the president. republicans are focused on thes process of the impeachment. it has been carried on behind
closed doors. mick mulvaney's comments made it much worse for house republicans. eric: he tried to in the news conference, he tried to -- here's something else he said. >> i was involved with the process by which the money was held up temporarily. okay. three issues for that. the corruption in the country, whether or not other countries were t participating in the support of the ukraine and whether or not they were cooperating in an ongoing investigation with our department of justice. that's completely legit met. eric: he's talking about the ukrainians holding up military aid and he's saying it's legitimate. why isn't that message going out stronger in terms of his view as opposed to people focusing on the quid pro quo. >> one of the reasons that is the messaging hasn't been consistent, from the get-go, the pet and his defenders have insisted there is no quid pro quo. what we've seen from not just witness testimony, but also what mick mulvaney admitted to on thursday, that message is
getting muddled. again, it makes it much more difficult for republicans who want to defend the president to be able to do so especially when you factor in rudy guliani's involvement here, the reporting that he's under federal investigation right now and the fact that rudy giuliani and donald trump are so intertwined, they're almost interchangeable within this ukraine scandal. s that's what democrats are trying to hammer on here as they build a case to impeach the president. eric: is that boom ranking for the republican -- boomeranging in terms of the president's support. >> you mentioned francis rooney earlier, the fact that he's not seeking re-election right now. there's more than just fran sigh rooney happening right now -- francis rooney happening right now. a lot of it is republicans grumbling about the fact there is no coherent messaging strategy from the white house, making it harder for them to defend the president against the allegations, as many of the hearings are conducted in secret and lawmakers are technically
not allowed to talk about what they see behind closed doors. eric: how much of an impact will that be? you have rooney, you have a few others, the washington post saying there are cracks but at the same time pointing out the base is energized and the leadership of the republican party, both the houses, sticking right along with the president. >> yeah, that's why i worded it that way and there are cracks in the wall, the wall has not come down. it's far away from coming down. thing is something that republicans will want to keep an eye on in the coming weeks. the president's re-election campaign on friday came out with those t-shirts that said get over it on them. that is of course borrowing a line from mick mulvaney's press conference on thursday, saying look, get over it, we always hang over political hangups when it comes to american foreign policy. that undercuts the walk-back that mick mulvaney made late thursday night. that's what republicans will be looking for going forward in terms of the messaging strategy
and making sure it's coherent and sticking together. eric: there are cracks and there are no holes and it's not crumbling. >> that's right. eric: thank you for joining us. you'll hear more from mick mulvaney tomorrow, he will be chris wallace's guest on fox news sunday. you can see it on your local station, also here at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m., right here on fox news channel. hyou won't want to miss that. you know chris is going to give him a grilling. arthel: the fighting announced in syria despite the announced cease fire. general about what the u.s. can do now, coming up. your family is duckin' and rollin'... while we stowin' and goin' but that's cool, i know for a fact your suv does not suck. and why is that? it aint got that vacuum in the back, whoo! sucking stuff up! what else are we gonna find? we got to go. vacuum in the back, hallelujah!

neighborhood. arthel: that was president trump defending his actions in syria after russia deployed its own troops to the syrian border with turkey to fill the void left by the u.s. this comes as the u.s. brokered cease fire deal with turkey appears to be hanging by a thread. joining us now is retired u.s. army major general vinnie boles. general, thanks for being here. i want to start with your reaction to what the president just said, russia hates isis, iran hates isis, let them fight it. it's way over there. it's not here. >> what the president has said is we're going to turn it all over to them. that means we'll live with whatever result they come up with. when we were engaged, we had a large part to play in that and the syrian kurds were our allies in doing that work and enabling us to do our three objectives, maintain a buffer zone, defeat and degrade isis and take care of the prisoners.
now we've taken that responsibility away from ourselves and left it to whatever russia and syria and whatever forces in the region decide to do. that makes me uncomfortable. arthel: that's probably putting it mildly. president erdogan is not adhering to the five day cease fire or pause deal. why does he feel that he doesn't have to? >> i think when we negotiated it, we only negotiated a five-day pause. then what? i would have preferred -- they didn't call me, but i would have preferred -- one of the things in the cease fire operation, you want to have a monitoring of it to make sure that both sides adhere to it. i would have liked to have seen a situation where the united states or another neutral party, the u.n. or whatever, could have gone in and monitored the adherence of both sides to the cease fire. we haven't done that. there were reports this morning now from the syrian command, the syrian kurd commander that not only are they being attacked by the turks but the retreat is
being blockaded and they're not allowed to leave. therefore in five days or three days from now, they'll be there in the area and the turks will use that as an excuse to attack them. arthel: meanwhile, president erdogan is meeting with russian president vladimir putin on tuesday, in russia. what do you think about that? >> the turks' behavior is believable. turkey is a natoal lie. nato has -- nato ally. nato has been unable to deter him from his actions. we were going to sell turkey the joint strike fighter. turkey went and bought the soviesoviet 440 air defense sysm and they would he refuse to be dissueded from that. turkey is trying to play both sides and i wouldn't say allied with russia but the they apparey have no problem working back with russia while they're still
a nato ally. arthel: what happens to the kurds, who did most of the fighting in the u.s. led fight against isis in. >> well, what happens to them now is they're engaged in a fight for self preservation. they're not engaged with defeating isis, they're not engaged with securing prisoners like they were. they're trying to decide do they go south in syria, do they align themselves with the syrians and russians to stay away from the turks or do they try to get into iraq and align with those forces. arthel: what about our troops in syria, about 1,000 of them. >> they've been pulled from the northern sectors and have been pulled to the south and have evacuated the bases that are there. i'm told the russians have moved into those bases. arthel: our soldiers, they're okay, they're going to be okay? >> it was a bit of a challenge. arthel: i'm sorry, sir. >> it was a bit of a challenge, because predominantly special operations forces operating in small detachments, we had to bring them all together, bring
them back to the bases and then actuate them out of there. arthel: will isis come back with a vengeance? >> isis is a belief system, as much as it's a military capability. there are individuals now looking at this, seeing the american withdrawal and maybe more inclined to join isis because the american pressure is off depending what the rushes chance and syrians do. we don't know what the russians or turks or iranians will do. the u.s. governor of the process is off and now we're left to whatever the russians, syrians and turks do. arthel: i have to go, general boles. i appreciate your time. we have news or we have to get to senator sanders, he's out on the campaign trail as you probably heard. he is in queens right now. thank you, general boles. we're going to go to queens now. this is senator sanders' first rally since suffering that heart attack a few weeks ago. he was just endorsed by

part of the job when he was at boeing was to communicate with the faa but the documents reveal this issue was not brought up to regulators. critics say tbhoang a rus boeind issues because they didn't want to delay the timeline by adding pilot training hours to the 737. the texts were sent two years before the crashes in ethiopia and indonesia. in a statement the agency said, quote, the faa is disappointed that boeing did not bring this document to our attention immediately upon its discovery. the faa is reviewing this information to determine what action is appropriate. arthel, boeing new of these texts months ago but just got around this week to sending them onto the department of transportation. the ceo of boeing is set to testify before congress at the end of the month. arthel. arthel: alyssa, thank you very much. eric: and that does it for us for now. we'll be back at 4:00. senator bernie sanders is still speaking in queens. let's take a listen.
