quote
3:03 am
michael flynn. >> the case against flynn stems from fbi interview with kislyak. he pleaded guilty to making false statements regarding those conversations during his interview as part of former special counsel robert mueller's investigation. >> they exonerated him completely of being an agent of russia by the end of january. and, yet, mr. comey still runs to the white house on february 14th and conjures up the entire obstruction of justice narrative against the president when flynn had been cleared of everything long before that. >> flynn is scheduled to be sentenced december 18th, guys. ed: lucas tomlinson live in washington. thank you. we were joking around about deep state and who is playing in the swamp. this is serious business. this comes what lucas was just reporting the fbi manipulating the situation with general flynn we just learned in the last 24 to 48 hours this review of the justice department fbi behavior how the russia
3:04 am
probe started has now morphed into a serious criminal investigation. there is going to be a grand jury, subpoenas. people like james clapper, maybe james comey, john brennan all these obama era officials are under the microscope this will add to the drip drip of all of that. jedediah: you can bet they are all nervous, too. what warranted this being shifted from a criminal investigation. if you see clapper in introduce. he is stumbling and looks terribly nervous about the whole situation. it's funny. this was first labeled as a conspiracy theory. people would bring up issues of the deep state and what was going on and why this investigation into collusion with russia started to begin with and what the justification walls. everyone said oh, you know, right wing conspiracy theory going on. now when you see what's going on and allegations against members of the fbi and what they were doing and how they had this agenda driven mission potentially from the beginning, a lot more people are jumping on board saying wait maybe what they were say guilty about deep state weren't crazy after all. pete: that's a problem with the media.
3:05 am
if you haven't told the story and suddenly becomes a real story, educate your viewers who never knew about this from the beginning. if you go back strzok to page text from that time period, nows that the dossier is out use as it a pretext to go interview some people. ed: pretext? pete: pretext to interview people. next couple weeks a bunch of meetings to talk about flynn. if you listen to what attorneys for flynn are talking about, this was entrapment. this was an attempt to set up flynn to make him look like the russian agent to create the pretext that the whole thing was about russian collusion. and if you get -- if they are able to prove that there was manipulation of official documents, which is what the lawyers are alleging here. ed: by fbi officials. pete: play right and left field for the washington nationals. if we know that, this is as bad as it gets from your own government. that's why the president yesterday at the white house was out there talking about
3:06 am
the investigation of the investigators. listen. >> looks like it's becoming very serious, from what i'm hearing. investigate the investigators. whether it's strzok and page, whether it's clapper and whether it's comey and all of these people, because terrible things went on for our country. and we have a great attorney general, highly press tinge just man, a very honorable man, and they have been looking at it for a long time. i leave it all up to the attorney general and i leave it all up to the people that are working with the attorney general, who i don't know. but i will say this. i think you will see things that nobody would have believed. this was the worst hoax in the history of our country. ed: you know, it's interesting. the president mentions the attorney general at the end. and you have members of the media and some democrats who for two and a half years or so we need to get the facts. we need to figure out this russia collusion thing you find out there really was no collusion and they move onto
3:07 am
the next thing, ukraine, talking about that all morning. okay, so they do that now all of a sudden we hear there is a criminal investigation of you who that investigation of russian collusion started. and they say this is political payback. president trump, they allege, is using his justice department politically to go after his political opponents. isn't that what may have happened in 2016 with the obama administration where the obama administration used their justice department to go after their political opponents as in donald trump and his team to actually potentially spy on them? that's what we are trying to get ought. the same people in the media spent two and a half years saying we need to know everything about alleged russian collusion. why don't they want the facts on this. pete: immediately political payback. first paragraph in every article. before they even get comments from democrats is this is bill barr, president trump using bill barr to get pay back on a political opponent. ed: launch a investigation. this may be payback by bill barr and donald trump.
3:08 am
immediately framing it that way. we have this funeral yesterday for elijah cummings, a member of congress who just passed away. people should be coming together. in fact mark meadows and jim jordan and other conservatives were at that funeral. senator mitch mcconnell. vice president pence were saying, look, this was a civil rights leader. somebody that we should all celebrate his life and legacy. and, yet, hillary clinton goes to the podium and decides to maybe take a little shot at president trump. watch. >> elijah cummings shared a name with an old testament prophet. like that old testament prophet he stood against corrupt leadership of king ahab and queen jezebel. jedediah: interesting. once again hillary has to politicize. she is disgraceful. she has to be front and center all the time. she has to put herself front and center all the time. it's always about her. it's all about the election. a dig at trump. you think she would recognize that you were trying to commemorate someone, whether you agree with elijah cummings or not,
3:09 am
he was someone vastly committed to what he believed in and who had done great service in the causes he believed in. this was a moment to celebrate him. this was not a moment to dig at president trump and she just -- she is politics as usual all the time. that's why she lost the election. pete: you have been spot on about hillary clinton from the beginning. jedediah: i don't take any garbage from her. pete: you don't. a bunch of senate democrats who agree with you who think it's not time for hillary even if she wants the rematch. dick durbin said i believe it's time for another nominee. jon tester i don't think it would be good tore her and that would be a mistake from another senator whose last name i can't pronounce and then joe manchin, absolutely not. ed: they don't want her. pete: she may want the rematch. jedediah: i don't even know that she wants the rematch. she wants people to want her like oh, hillary, please. we need you. joe biden has been a disappointment. please come in and make the same mistakes over and over again? no, they are not doing that people recognize that she is
3:10 am
not good at this. she is not a good campaigner. she lost that election because she lost that election. because she didn't run a good campaign. because she lied to the american people repeatedly and because she decided wisconsin wasn't important. and that's the truth. they know that they are not rushing to put her front and center. ed: we are going to play a clip a little later. bill maher saying from the left. stay away from the convention. move on. we don't want the clintons anymore. they are hearing that. dick durbin, all these other senators. what do you think about it? friends@foxnews.com? pete: i'm sure the emails will pour in. jedediah: headlines now. beginning with a fox news alert. an nypd officer is in a medically induced comey after being struck in the head with a metal chair. police were responding to a call at the nail salon when things got out of control. a man was resisting arrest when another man rushed in and started attacking the two officers. one of them fired six shots at the suspect killing him. the injured officer is expected to survive. and also breaking overnight.

ed: lawyers filing explosion motion fbi agents actually manipulated official records that led to charges against him. this comes as we learn more about the investigation into the origins of the russian probe. here to react live former u.s. attorney -- good morning, good to have you. >> good morning. ed: explain to our viewers. explain what happened with michael flynn, what is the allegation that his legal team is making? how important do you think it is to his case? >> it's very important. michael flynn, he is so far of o a federal agency. it's what we call 1001
3:17 am
violation. what's interesting about that crime is the government has to prove it was knowingly and willfully a misrepresentation by flynn. you know, so now what you have are allegations that may suggest this couldn't have been how is it willful if he thinks is he having a conversation that is not an interview by a federal agency. ed: doesn't this get at what the president has been talking about for a couple of years? democrats, many in the media have been saying investigators out to get the president. just as we're hearing from john durham the u.s. attorney overseeing the review of all of this, he now has a criminal investigation. it's a gransd jury, he has subpoena power. what does this mean in the grand scheme? >> well, not a lot of people know that conspiracy itself is an actual crime in the united states. it's section 371.
3:18 am
it is a crime to conspire to either defraud or to harm the united states it was created or fabricated from comey to strzok and page and those manipulating, that itself could be a crime what did and perpetrated. ed: filing from general flynn's team where they're alleging that basically there were people who went to david ignatius, the columnist for "the washington post." and that james clapper or people on his staff went to him and basically said it's time to take out general flynn. there needs to be a kill shot, basically. clapper people saying he was the director of national intelligence, of course. the president has attacked him. saying he didn't quite use those words. wondering if this is a weevilly way out.
3:19 am
was james clapper there when he used the word conspiracy. were he and others out to get general flynn. >> it's chilling. it should give us a concern whether we are democrat or republican in this country that those with the most powerful tools we grant our investigators you may have operatives or intelligence community working with the fbi to come up with and to conspire to take down either a sitting president or those in his campaign, to do that with the laws that we have should concern all of us. >> so last question then, who should be concerned? i mentioned james clapper, in this latest allegation, that he wanted a quote, unquote, kill shot to take out general flynn. we have heard the name john brennan who, of course, was cia director under president obama and that maybe john durham, the prosecutor here, wants to talk to him. who should be concerned? >> anyone that may have assisted in manipulating,
3:20 am
utilizing our criminal statutes or our foreign surveillance abilities on u.s. citizens. any of them from clapper and brennan to comey, or those that have such power should be concerned. we, as a country, want to know that those who have that kind of power are not above the law. and we can investigate them as much as any regular, ordinary citizen. ed: very serious charges. they have obviously denied wrong-doing. something we will stay on top of. bret, we appreciate you coming in. >> thank you. ed: meanwhile, detroit's airport letting people without a ticket go through security. is that really a good idea. especially in a place that used to be a strong hold for terrorists? our next guest is the former deputy assistant secretary of transportation he is shocked about this and says you should be concerned. it's a! 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!

sure that we have security from the airport curve through the passenger checkpoints onto the tarmac. and also, in the baggage claim and cargo facilities and maintenance facilities as well. so we don't have any type of event because we can't turn airplanes into weapons of mass destruction. pete: oliver, so the program, you have to apply for it the day before and all applicants can screened through tsa secure flights. when you look at detroit, the fbi has pointed out in the past that most of 28 international terrorist groups have recently identified by the state department representative michigan. large muslim population in michigan. most of which are peaceful. we are not making some broad-sweeping accusation at all. but ultimately, there have been problems there. does that make this concerning? >> well, i am sure that the detroit airport officials are looking at this very closely as well as the national security
3:27 am
officials -- officials as well. we really do have to be visionary and vigilant. that's really what you are describing. in making sure that airports are safe and secure in the post 9/11 era. there is some concern in this particular airport and this is also being test piloted in tampa and in pittsburgh. but they're going slow, pete. they are going slow. they really limiting to about 75 passengers. and ultimately, i don't think the revenue driver for shops and eateries is really the key. i think they are watching it to make sure that all belts and centers, buckles are on in this particular new program. we can't have any, any problems that are going to bring us back to 9/11 which we had all of these safety protocols to ensure that we do have a safe and secure airports and also aircraft. pete: that's right. vigilance is what is required. you let your guard down and that's when you have problems. oliver mcgehee, thank you so much for your time this

3:34 am
the key parts is to whether to keep a small u.s. force on the ground there. it appears the president wants to do that in northern syria to help secure the oil that he is concerned iran, isis, other bad actors could get their hands on. what's your thoughts this morning. >> i think what's most frustrating for republicans on capitol hill and those of us voting that support the president is that the overall strategies is fairly defensible it. makes sense now that we spent three or four weeks hashing it out. i think the president and his team did not do a good job controlling the communication and narrative around this. and it seems very reactionary. as we are explaining what we are doing and why we are doing it. you know, you have the president saying we are taking our troops home. but then you have the defense department sending more troops into syria to guard oil wells and oil tankers and so really what it comes down to is that we are going to have a contingent of troops in many places around the world. the best way to keep our country safe is to keep an eye and a finger on those that would do us harm. that's not the same as
3:35 am
regime change. it's not the same as 100,000 troops in afghanistan. i think it's the right policy. pete: joey, let's bring it here at home. the campaign is in full swing as you know, and the 020 democrats are trying to make headlines. beto o'rourke has done so by talking about how he wants to take guns. famously back from people, including ar-15s. he was in iowa, talking to the folks. and someone in the audience had a different view. take a listen. >> i am a hunter myself. i have used an ar-15. what about those people who use that as a way to, you know, get dinner, who live down south. >> address a legitimate concern for me is to ensure that those who have or want to use an ar-15 are able to keep it at a hunting club or at that time a gun range. so there is some control and safeguards still placed on that firearm. ultimately we take some action to save the lives of those who are being taken.
3:36 am
and then to protect against the kind of fear these acts of terror are inspiring. pete: so i have got to take my ar-15 and send it to a gun club? >> we can make funnel of this and we should, we really should. beto should be made fun of because this is such an important issue, and he has no information, no authority no idea what he is talking about. that is almost a kid that called him out on a very simple thing. i am a disabled hunter, right? both my wrists are fused. my shoulders are fused. i need a pistol grip and semi-automatic gun to go hunt. guess what that is that's an ar-15, ar-10. sporting rifle. the truth is beto doesn't understand what he is talking about. he needs this shiny october, this flash point to try and stir a controversy and get votes. it's just not happening for him. >> even if you take out the issue of hunting, that question happened to be related to hunting, but many people talk about the ar-15 in terms of self-defense.
3:37 am
they live in rural areas. they use that weapon as a meth of self-defense. they know if they pick up the phone to call police it, will take a very long time for the police to get. there is he completely unaware that there are people around the country that utilize that weapon to protect themselves and their families? >> well, he is not unaware. he just thinks that his best chance at getting people to support him right now is to have a controversial issue that he can get 49% of people to agree with the one thing i will say is that i disagree that we have to go all the way to the constitution. my license to own that gun exist in the rotunda of the national archives if nhs hasn't stolen it already illusion to a really bad movie. the think the defense of owning these guns doesn't have to go that far. they are in common use and they're not in common use against one another. in a country that's free, that matters, we don't ban alcohol. we don't ban things that can harm us just because they
3:38 am
don't save lives in hospitals. so the idea that guns are used in self-defense or hunting or for sport or as an ornament in my safe, those are all equally justifiable reasons that i should be able to own them because i'm a law-abiding citizen. and that's important in this country. beto uses the number 40,000 when really only a few hundred people are killed each year by rifles in general, to mention just ars. maybe less than a few thousand. that's not to say that we should accept it. we don't fix it by simply banning something that is so commonly used legally. pete: well said. joey jones, thank you so much for your time this morning. we appreciate it? >> thank you all, i appreciate it. ed: meanwhile the victim of the slender man attack speaking out for the first time. peyton was 12 years old when she was stabbed 19 times by two classmates. now she is detailing the trauma she still deals with. >> i still sleep with like a broken pair of scissors underneath the pillow next to me just in case.

>> to this day? >> it just makes me feel safer. >> do you think that will ever go away? >> i hope so but for now i don't think so. ed: peyton ambushed in 2014 while playing hide-and-seek. the other girls say they attacked her to please the slender man. character in online horror stories. the girls are sentenced to 40 and 25 years in a mental institution. and a father at the center of a controversial gender transition legal fight speaking out. moments before a texas judge issued a gag order on him. james younger battling his ex-wife to keep his 7-year-old son from undergoing hormone replacement. telling the case tells you how far our society has changed and how much less christian we are in the way we think about things. the judge has ordered the patience to make joint decisions regarding the boy's care moving forward. and heart-stopping video showing the moment a window wash everywhere falls from a scaffolding. look at this.

pete: quick headlines for you, ted danson arrested along hanoi jane fonda in washington, d.c. this is the third time the 81-year-old actress ended up in handcuffs at a climate change protest this month. are you bored yet? i am. both were arrested for unlawful demonstration after marching in favor of the green new deal. 32 others, whose names will remain out of the headlines also arrested. and amanda knox is clapping back at lady gaga for tweeting about prison. the singer declaiming that fame is prison before knox quickly responded by saying i hear you, but prison is prison: knox as was released from an italian prison in 2011 after. jed, over to you. jedediah: supreme court justice clarence thomas speaking out about the criticism he faces for being a black conservative. >> there's a different set of rules for different people. if you criticize a black person who is more liberal,
3:47 am
you are a racist. whereas if you can do whatever to me, or to now ben carson and that's fine. you are not really black because you are not doing what we expect black people to do. jedediah: joining to us discuss clerk to supreme court justice clarence thomas carrie serino. thank you for being here. >> thank you. jedediah: what do you think about that sound by the different set of rules for a black conservative? >> that's from an amazing new documentary coming out. i understand it's going to be on parkways in the spring. i'm so excited because you get to see a side as justice thomas as a clerk for him i got to see and most people don't. it's him in his own words, really. i think he is absolutely right no. one could have put it better than anita hill herself who told meet the press in 1998. maybe there is a double standard. isn't that the nature of politics. she was defending bill clinton with serial sexual misconduct. he is good on other women's issues i like let's give him
3:48 am
a pass. that's outrage jugs. that is the kind of thing that justice thomas has experienced his whole career. they have been trying to block him the whole time because he is that articulate principled conservative voice on the court. and you know what? i think he has shown them because he has been one of the most influential supreme court justices of our generation. jedediah: there was an excerpt from time magazine on thomas and the modern day liberal that really struck me. i want to read it to you and get your reaction. thomas says his experience in the hearings made him realize that he had been expecting a certain type of person as he described the bigot, clansman and rural sheriff to held him back over the course of his life. the confirmation hearing changed his mind. quote. it turned out through all of that, ultimately the biggest impediment was the modern day liberal, he says. what do you make of that? that's a pretty impactful statement. >> in this documentary, he tells a story of his whole life part of which he really was that liberal. he was a very radical young
3:49 am
man. answered talks about how that -- i learned that was really keeping him caught in a cycle of anger and rage. saw people who attacked him most in his life ultimately were the ones that could not september idea that he came to agree in a conservative philosophy, which he actually got from his own grandfather. so this is really going back to his roots. and they just couldn't abide the idea of a man who put the lie to their identity politics who said that all black people have to think the same way. jedediah: pretty fascinating stuff. justice 24078s is set to teach a course at the university of florida on religion and first amendment. of course there is a lot of outrage about that. this a student's letter to the campus newspaper in part. explain how the celebration of clarence thomas' presence on campus will help the effort to address the culture at uf that has led to increase in campus sexual assault in the group actually, cair, believe survivors has come out.
3:50 am
this is obviously in response to the charges that were made against anita hill in the 1990s. what do you make of that statement? >> these students don't know what they are talking about. they should be thrilled to have justice thomas on campus. it's a real opportunity for them. i think the problem is they have been only listening to the 30 years of propaganda campaign, not even because they are probably even not old enough. they weren't here at the time of those hearings. the people who watched those, who heard the testimony on both sides two to one believed anita hill over thomas because her story was so inconsistent. jedediah: thank you for being here. i look forward to seeing the documentary and appreciate your take. thank you so much. while you were sleeping, president trump just picked a new fight with the iphone and astros pick up first win in the world series. jillian mele is live in washington. we will check in with her right after the break. don't miss it ♪ ♪ i wish i could shake your hand.

4:03 am
left fielder and right fielder respectfully. an email from them on february 10th of 2017 says this: i made your edits and sent them to joe. i also emailed you an updated 302. i'm not asking you to edit this weekend. i just wanted to send it. now, what is a 302 and what might that mean and how might that pertain to michael flynn. ed: 302 is the official fbi document after you interview a witness, basically. this is a very important document that records what was said. and so general flynn's legal team is basically suggesting the records of his interview were manipulated in some way to make it look worse for him. one of his attorneys, sydney powell was on hannity last night, guest hosted by our friend jason chaffetz. here's how he framed it. >> we also have information that the agents did minute manipulate the 302. long and dealershippive state as they called it, which is highly unusual in and of itself. people can go to the actual document and read it and see the document for themselves:
4:04 am
it's extremely conservative and misconduct. the agents delicately calculated and medicine to plan how to ambush general flynn without letting him know he was officially under any kind of criminal investigation. ed: the aforementioned jason chaffetz is on the couch with us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. ed: how huge is this. >> it's huge. general flynn is trying to get out from under a guilty plea. his new attorney sydney powell has unearthed a lot of information. that's going to be pivotal when she goes to a judge and says this man should not have had to plead guilty. the fbi manipulated how they interviewed him. they used the precursors that were not there and then they actually edited it. one of the key things really important, that really gets to me. michael horowitz, the inspector general, went to go get these text messages and the fbi said oh, we can't find them. he had to go to the pentagon
4:05 am
to write an algorithm to go get these text messages which now reveal this interaction between these fbi agents that really does look like nefarious activity. ed: sounds like somebody was trying to cover up text messages. >> that's the thing. and what sidney powell told us last night on hannity was if you put the 302 one day and the next day, you see how it's changed. and the heart of that is did michael flynn lie to the fbi? that's what he is charged with. but there is nothing in the original 302 that says that he did not -- he wasn't claiming that he didn't meet with the russians. he was just saying he didn't know. went to dozens of countries and talked to a number of people. i don't know if i did or not. pete: fbi set him up to make him feel comfortable. not an investigation. just share how might know and who you might have met with. for a lot of regular folks, you think a 302, a transcript of what you interviewed someone would be black and white, straightforward. in this case, one change of a line or a word changes the the entire thing.
4:06 am
>> and you are backing up with the text message between peter strzok and lisa page. lisa page, in which whole scenario is the one that actually edited the 302. that's the allegation from sydney powell. jedediah: i want to ask you about john kerry who has weighed in on all of this. is he suggesting that the evidence against president trump. the evidence is more powerful than what we saw in the impeachment of richard nixon. take a listen to what he had to say and get your reaction. >> the evidence is powerful. some of it more powerful already than what we saw in the impeachment of richard nixon. and and what's more, the evidence at this point in time certainly merits the inquiry that is taking place. jedediah: crazy talk or no? >> i don't know how he would know that everything has been done in secret there have been selective leaks. i think it is based on pure speculation. i don't see the type of evidence. when the president released the actual transcript of the
4:07 am
interaction with the ukrainian president, even adam schiff couldn't take the actual verbatim verbiage and spiel that in front of the world. he had to make it up. so, i don't know where he is coming from on this. i don't know how he would think he would even know it. pete: literally breaking into your opponent's headquarters to steal information is what happened. and all the tapes and secret conversations erased. how does one draw a parallel between that and basement secret hearings that republicans are not allowed to even see? >> my own personal theory is i think the left is panicking. i think brennan and clapper and comey and a host of other people know that the horowitz report, which is a serious report, and john durham, the u.s. attorney out of connecticut, are doing a serious investigation and i think this unearthed pit is a tantrum or distraction on the side. i really do. jedediah: you say people are panicking. do you think joe biden or president obama are
4:08 am
panicking. if you are talking about obama era officials, joe biden is running for president right now. he is worried about what he asked about this what he knew and did not know. >> the way this works the inspector general will actually show a snippet. if you are mentioned in a inspector general report. they will see a snippet. when you see clapper and brennan and some of these other people trying to get out of it ahead of it and give a spin, it's because in part they know what's coming. not that they can change it. they may have actually seen their little snippets of it. and if you aren't looking, clapper, brennan, this is the director of national intelligence. this is the head of the cia. and you are going to have an interesting choice for joe biden. walls he involved and engaged in the day-to-day operations of the white house? or was he just oblivious in showing up at funerals? he has got an interesting choice there. ed: really interesting. the president, there is some in the media saying he needs war room. he needs more advisors, communications team. he says, look, i'm taking care of the impeachment strategy. watch. >> everyone is talking about the team.
4:09 am
i'm the team. i did nothing wrong. this was the insurance policy was strzok and page. we did nothing wrong. what strzok said oh, she is going to win, she is going to win. but if she doesn't, we have an insurance policy. so this has been going on since before i got elected. and people are angry about it. and do you know who is angry about it? the republican party is angry about it. because this isn't a take down of the president. this is a takedown of the republican party. and, frankly, the democrats should be ashamed of themselves. ed: there is a message there where he is basically trying to say democrats are trying overturn the last election. >> they are playing offense. nancy pelosi, go back to the january 20th "the washington post" story where it says impeachment proceedings have begun. in 2017. the day the president is sworn in. now, part of it was tongue in cheek but a lot of it is reality of what they were trying to do. nancy pelosi, think about it, she stands up before the world and says formal impeachment proceedings have
4:10 am
begun, even though they hadn't talked to the whistleblower, she hadn't read the underlying document. i don't believe that by the way. it's really quite stunning. pete: what more should republicans do, can they do to have the back of a president they feel like is being targeted? >> i think when they finally started playing offense, the republicans, the republicans are usually out there apologizing and trying to justice. but when they actually tried to say hey, we should be able to go in and sit in on these meetings, i thought that was a great thing to do. they can do a lot of things against adam schiff. they can file an ethics complaints. how is it that adam schiff still has a security clearance let alone head of the intel committee. there are a host of other things they can continue to do. play offense. jedediah: we are going to turn to headlines for you. this is a fox news alert. california's largest utility company admits it may have sparked a massive wildfire, despite cutting power to prevent one. new video revealing the moment that kinkade fire broke out in wine country near a high voltage power

4:26 am
>> well, that's the beautiful thing about portsmouth. it's the people there. and the people care. and for far too long the narrative has been negative for us. and so what we did is we opened up a gym. and that gym led to follow-on opportunities. one of which was a partnership with the area's only nonprofit dug addiction treatment center called the counseling center. we piloted a brand new innovative program where we started bringing cross fit classes to people going through recovery. and what they did for me personally is i used to just judge these people negatively. every day i would see them walk by my building and just cast judgment upon them. and that wasn't solving the problem. and it wasn't until i began offering these classes to people that i got to know them on a one-on-one basis and realized that the problem isn't the people. the problem is the addiction. and small business has the power to solve that issue. pete: dale, talk to me about one of those people, andrew

5:03 am
and all of these -- all of the people who participated in the complete set-up of general michael flynn. >> the case against flynn stems from the fbi interview about conversations he had with former russian ambassador sergey kislyak. flynn ultimately pleaded guilty to making false statements regarding those conversations as part of former special counsel robert mueller's investigation. powell alleges the fbi manipulated the summary of those interviews and claims ex-fbi agent peter strzok was involved. >> they exonerated him completely of being an agent of russia by the end of january. and, yet, mr. comey still runs to the white house on february 14th and conjures up the entire obstruction of justice narrative against the president when flynn had been cleared of everything long before that. >> flynn is scheduled to be sentenced on december 18th, guys. ed: all right. lucas tomlinson live in washington. is he a nationals fan by the way. he is probably routing for them tonight. in the meantime this big, big story. the president has been saying for a long time that the investigators were out

5:05 am
302 is a compilation of agent's notes. not a transcript. so the notes can be manipulated. a bunch of people in the meeting decide what was said and what was not said: think about the fact that they set the meeting up at the beginning of the trump presidency because they thought there was some -- there was irregular processes. get in and there make flynn comfortable. they have already sent russians to meet with him to set the pre-text. what did you know and what didn't you? then they minute the notes? it all looks like a set-up. when you look at durham and barr and their now criminal investigation. man, what did they know and when will we hear it? that will have huge implications. jedediah: tolman used the word telling. this is something you should care about. if you have a story about the fbi manipulating people's quotes. manipulating potentially their records, this is really disturbing on many levels. you have to think if that can happen under one administration toward one president, it can certainly happen under another administration towards another president.
5:06 am
this should be something universally condemned. unfortunately in media so much you see it utilized as a talking point because they don't like trump. suddenly it's the doj, don't like trump, this isn't a real story. this is highly highly disturbing. pete: if you watch elsewhere other networks, they all say this is political revenge. that's the lead stoferred as opposed to what's going on. jedediah: they should care about. ed: let's follow the facts and see what john durham finds and see whether it's a conspiracy theory or they really were out to get the president. we may finally find this out. meantime the president on offense about impeachment a few moments ago tweeting out about nancy pelosi charging she is spending more time on impeachment than actually taking care of her district back in san francisco. jedediah: here is this tweet. i can't believe that nancy pelosi's district in san francisco is in such horrible shape that the city itself is in violation of many sanitary and environmental orders causing it to oh th owe the federal government billions of dollars. and all sheet workers on is impeachment. we should work on these
5:07 am
hazardous waste and homeless sites before the whole city rots away. very bad and dangerous conditions. also severely exacting the pacific ocean and water supply. pelosi must work on this mess and turn her district around: good point all they focus on is government. we forget these people are elected to represent people. like nancy pelosi is elected to represent people of her district. those issues should also be front and center. all she seems to care about is impeach donald trump, impeach donald trump and people in her district sitting at home what about us? ed: that's why they are rushing to do it by thanksgiving. they want to tell their base we impeached him. we did that move back to the other issues, economy, healthcare. they might not be able to get away with that it will be throughout they were focused on impeachment. pete: it's tough to be the manager of the swamp. spending all that time caucus totally out of control. committee chairman lying and incompetent. adam schiff and others. you can't pay attention to that she is so invested in the failed policies that fail these inner cities,

sanctuary cities, the homelessness problem. the dependency problem. the drug problem that she can't take it on. she couldn't speak truth if she wanted to. that's the president's point. jedediah: she has to oppose her own policy. ed: jason chaffetz was on the couch with us last hour. he said this is a big, big problem for the democrats. it might boomerang on them. watch. >> go back to the january 20th "the washington post" story where it says impeachment proceedings have begun. ed: in 2017. >> 2017, the day the president is sworn. in part of it was tongue in cheek but a lot of it is reality of what they were trying to do. and nancy pelosi, think about it, she stands up before the world and says formal impeachment proceedings have begun, even though they hadn't talked to the whistleblower, she hadn't read the underlying document. i don't believe that by the way. and it's really quite stunning. ed: this is a big, big story. another one out on the campaign trail in 2020. remember when beto o'rourke thought he would get energy on the left by going all in on taking away second amendment rights and said basically the government wants to come get your guns
5:09 am

5:10 am
we are going to take your gun. don't worry, you will get to house it at hunting club or gun range. we will keep it safe to you. the idea that americans are going to pick up on this and hear this. we talked to joey jones last hour that says beto doesn't know what he is talking about on the hunting issue. i have to agree. take a listen. >> this is such an important issue. he has no information, no authority, and no idea what he is talking about. that is almost a kid that called him out on a very simple thing. i am a disabled hunter, right? both my wrists are fused. my soldiers are fused. i need a business tall grip and semi-automatic gun to go hunt. that's an ar-15. ar-10. that's a military weapon of war as he would call it. really just a sporting rifle. beto doesn't understand what he's talking about. he needs this shiny object and flash point to stir controversy and get votes. it's just not happening for him. pete: hunting is just the tip of the iceberg. personal protection checks against tyrannical government. the founders had reasons why they believed people should be empowered to defend

5:18 am
lift your spirits and give you a chance to talk about hillary clinton. first of all, i have to ask, did you think that was appropriate for her to take a dig at president trump. >> i think it played to that audience. remember, you are talking about a democratic congressman from a democratic city, baltimore, elijah couples i think without speaking directly and calling the president's name and spoke to a general sense in that audit next, elijah couples who had defended hillary clinton so aggressively during the benghazi hearings and who was engaged in oversight, he was the chairman of the oversight and reform committee and looking at things like security clearances and whether they were being properly given in the trump white house all of that spoke to that moment that you have have to hold account. people could perceive it as a slight toward president trump. in that sense the funeral not clearly appropriate. i think it spoke to that audience and you could hear
5:19 am
the response. jedediah: you have to question if that venue was the appropriate time to make that point. to identify ask you, juan, as a democrat, be honest with me here, are democrats just hoping she will go away? >> no. this is very interesting. that's a great question i think it was steve bannon on fox business she thinks she is going to run and come in and reclaim the centrist aisle in the democratic primaries from joe biden. ever since this kind of thing has taken off. there is no substance to it. she is on a book tour. you are seeing hillary unplugged. she speaks critically of the president and critically. jedediah: juan, hold on. you are saying there is no substance to it. why does she tweet out don't tempt me and her advisor is saying not ruling it out. she stokes that fire and puts it out there and wants people to clamor for her because they are upset with
5:20 am
joe biden and maybe he is not the choice. hillary save us. that's how i see it anyway. >> oh, no. i think, in fact, from my democratic point of view, if you want, but also from a political analyst point of view, jedediah, i think there are people on the right who want to rerun 2016 because they beat hillary clinton. and they have made hillary clinton a demon. it's the halloween season. she is the wicked witch of the west. i think it was drudge had her up there in a witch's hat the other day. and i think people want to just continue to pilary her. but the reality is that even her top advisor. i think philip reigns has been on fox and said the chances are close to zero she is on a book tour. she is unplugged and she feels free to take shots at president trump. to even criticize tulsi gabbard. one of the democrats running for president. jedediah: we have to wrap. juan, i appreciate you being here. she is not the wicked witch but she is a terrible candidate. >> there you go, jedediah. jedediah: thanks as always, juan, for being here.

jedediah: some quick headlines for you now. felicity huffman is waking up at home this morning after being released from cushy prison three days early. the actress only serving 11 days in 14-day sentence in college admission scandal. admitted paying 15,000 to do so boost her daughter's sat score. and ted danso danson arrested alongside jane fonda in washington, d.c. this is the third time the 81-year-old actress ended up in handcuffs at climate change protest this month. both were arrested for
5:25 am
unlawful demonstration after marching in favor of the green new deal. 32 others were also arrested. down to you, ed. ed: all right, thanks, jed. amid the crime wave in chicago. their top cop is getting hit with a vote of no confidence from a police union board. pete: this comes after police superintendent eddie johnson announced he is skipping out on president trump's upcoming speech in the city to law enforcement. ed: here to react retired police sergeant peter koconis. good to see you, peter. >> good morning. ed: what do you think about the idea, first of all, this is, you know, a police chief -- police boss who has got, you know, has had a lot of criticism come his way over a lot of high profile cases. the idea that you are going to skip an event where the president of the united states is coming to a city to speak to law enforcement. how do you react to that? >> well, i like johnson. i think he did a pretty good job after the mcdonald situation. but, donald trump is the president of the united states.
5:26 am
he deserves the respect that the office itself is. so, if johnson disagrees with him, i can understand that and if you don't see eye to eye with him on a lot of things, i understand that, also. but he is still the president of the united states. he still has that level of respect that's due to that president. if he does say something derogatory about chicago, johnson has the ability to respond or to walk out. the office of the president still needs to get that respect. pete: so the police union in chicago held a vote of no confidence for the superintendent eddie johnson after he decided not to go to the speech. here is how eddie johnson responded to the vote. today's decision from the board and not the from active f.o.p. manipulate membership. i understand and respect the lodge is upset about the decision to not stand with the president.
5:27 am
i can't in good conscience stand by while racial insults and hatred are cast from the oval office or chicago is being held hostage. how do you president focused on law and order. >> most of the policemen i have talked to and on my social media lately, they all say that johnson should go to that thing i should go to the meeting and make an appearance out of respect for the office. the violence here. the problems here they existed with obama was president. obama did nothing from a zone city. trump is pro-law enforcement. so he is pro-federal law enforcement state and local. when we needed help. he sent in atf people to help with gun prosecutions that our own state's attorney isn't doing. ed: sergeant, a lot of people are wondering why eddie johnson isn't focused on the crime wave and helping people getting
5:28 am
killed every single weekend instead of sitting with the president of the united states. real quick? >> well, you know, he is trying to get -- he has as many policemen as we can out there. they are even canceling days off for fear of demonstration on a monday when trump comes in. that takes resources away from communities that need him. ed: all right. >> we need to enforce the laws that we have. not be lenient. ed: sergeant coconis. we appreciate you come in. thank you, sir. pete: thank you for your service. >> thank you. pete: justice department's review of the russia investigation now a criminal inquiry. what does james clapper think of that? >> well, you know, very curious, presumably, i guess i'm one of those under investigation. and i just don't know. pete: does he look a little nervous? sounded like he was stumbling a little bit. is he maybe worried? dan bongino has the answer. he is next. ♪ ♪ life in the fast lane

5:34 am
week, what's happening and what should people take away? >> well, first off, this isn't a real impeachment, okay? president trump should ignore the proceeds. i don't mean politically ignored. he has to respond. he should treat it as what it is, which is a non-impeachment impeachment. pete, the constitution is clear. i know liberals in the house of representatives on the democrat side have a tough time with reading comprehension and things like the house of representatives shall have the sole power to impeach, which is actually in the constitution if they read it. you will notice, pete, it doesn't say the house of representative, again, for the liberals have a tough time with that. that's plural. that means the house of representatives meaning they would take a vote. which they haven't. so, this is not an impeachment, it's a political stunt. it should be politically responded to but tactically speaking it is a fake, non-impeachment. the republicans should treat it as such. jedediah: dan, what about the allegation that the flynn file, this fbi 302
5:35 am
form was manipulated? what do you make of that and its potential implications? >> you know, jed, this is, of all the things i saw this week, i rarely use explicatives on twitter. this one blew my mind when i saw it. think about what happened here with the allegation is. just to be clear with the audience. fbi 302 is a documented summary of an interview they conduct. we didn't have to do those in the secret service formal forms afterwards the fbi does. the interview flynn, the allegation now, after they interviewed this dedicated american patriot, an unquestioned military hero when they interviewed him, there was no evidence, none, that mike flynn lied to the fbi. fbi even said that, people on the record, that there was no evidence of deception. it now -- this allegation has surfaced that the form they used to document the interview of mike flynn where they indicated he wasn't deceptive was changed to indicate that he was deceptive when he wasn't. so let's just sum this up for a second. a dedicated american patriot
5:36 am
chosen by donald trump to be the national security advisor, right? a military hero, is being investigated and interviewed for a crime that isn't even real. the logan act is the unconstitutional mess that has never been prosecuted successfully in the history of the united states. so he is being interviewed for essentially a fake crime. he gives an interview where the fbi acknowledges he is in no way deceptive about a conversation he had with the russian ambassador which is perfectly ethical. he is then sent to jail for lying when the fbi said he didn't lie and now there is some evidence surfacing that they manipulated evidence to get this american patriot locked up. this is a cosmic level disgrace, ladies and gentlemen, that even the left should be asking questions about. but they won't. because the tier ran any streak is strong with them. ed: dan, it's happening in a broader context. disgrace if this was the only incident. it's happening in a case where maybe the president was framed. maybe there was a whole

5:38 am
scandal in american history. here is the problem they are all going to have. there are a number of them but i will get to the big one right here. i have strong evidence that in january of 2017 no later than that day. james comey and the fbi know for a fact that the sources christopher steele are using and claim to be russian sources with verified of evidence of collusion, they know it's false. absolutely know it's false and they go and sign on to additional fisa warrants anyway. that is a big, big problem. ed: if james clapper, james comey knew this and they still went to the fisa court and ended up spying on carter page, maybe others, big, big problems ahead potentially. dan bongino has been all over this story from the beginning. people have dismissed it as a conspiracy theory. we may be about to finally get the actual facts. dan, we appreciate you come in. jedediah: thanks, dan. pete: thank you, dan. >> thanks, guys. pete: turning now to the headlines, victim of the slenderman attack speaking out for the first time.

6:02 am
general flynn. the compilation of what happened with the fbi, the recollections were changed to be manipulated to make it sound like general flynn was lying which if that is the case you have not just entrapment of the initial conversation but an attempt to change the fact to make him look guilty to create the narrative of undoing the election by creating the perception this is all a russian conspiracy and we have more emails on this. >> it is crazy so many people talking about the deep state
6:03 am
for so long, the justification for the investigation. was a premeditated decision to go after donald trump and so many people with multiple conspiracy theories. to see these stories surfacing about the fbi manipulating official documents like that it really is bone chilling. any administration -- >> now you have john durham from connecticut who has a sterling reputation for being bipartisan or nonpartisan, a criminal investigation open to look at james comey, james clapper, pete does a good job with dramatic readings. >> when you toss that to me i wanted to toss it back to you for that reason. >> the lovebirds, peter stzrok and lisa page, i made your edits, and then send them to do. i also emailed you an updated 302. i made your edits. what edits?
6:04 am
why was your initial recollection not accurate did you was are we editing? how close is that too inauguration of the new president or special counsel to all the things happening behind-the-scenes because the deep state was at work and what does the president say? we are living inside an insurance policy. another part of the emails they talked about? >> if donald trump somehow wins they have an insurance policy to undo the election. >> sidney powell, michael finance attorney weighed in on hannity. >> we have information the agent did manipulate the 302, a deliberative state which is unusual in and of itself. the actual document, they see a lot for themselves. it is extremely concerning and outrageous government misconduct. the agents to liberally
6:05 am
miscalculated and planned and strategized how to ambush general flynn without letting him know he was under criminal investigation. >> all you have in the back of your mind is straightlaced fbi agents from top to bottom that are dedicated to the constitution and rule of law. they are writing it down, assessing it to see if there is criminality. it is all above board. when that breaks down and the deputy director is manipulating, you lose faith in the process. whether the investigators are aboveboard. this is just the revenge of the political arm of the trump presidency. william barr was never a trump guy. he is a bipartisan law and order justice guy and he is digging into it and the criminal probe. >> trying to dig into this
6:06 am
before anyone was asking questions, he was asking important questions and he said we should ask questions about flynn. here's what he had to say. >> a dedicated american patriot chosen by donald trump to be national security adviser, a military hero, being investigated and interviewed for a crime that isn't even real. the logan act is an unconstitutional mess that was never prosecuted successfully in the history of the united states. he was sent to jail for lying when the fbi said he didn't lie and there is evidence surfacing they manipulated evidence to get this american patriot locked up. this is a cause make level disgrace that even the left should be asking questions, the tyranny streak is strong with them. >> they care about privacy and overreach, making sure the government is not spying on you. we may get to the bottom of this.
6:07 am
is it a conspiracy theory or trump allies have been saying the facts when you see them will be damning. we may see that with the criminal probe. hillary clinton won't leave the political stage even when there is a funeral. elijah cummings passed away recently. his funeral, all kinds of luminaries in both parties and conservatives turning out, jim jordan and mark meadows our friends with elijah cummings even though they disagreed with him vehemently, this is a civil rights hero, someone who stood strong for what he believed in even if they disagreed with the details. they turned out for the funeral and hillary clinton going to the stage and taking a not-so-subtle shot at a funeral director that donald trump. >> elijah cummings shared a name with an old testament prophet like the old testament prophet he stood against corrupt leadership of king ahab and queen jezebel. >> totally an appropriate venue for this type of thing hillary
6:08 am
clinton is doing but there is a bigger story. always dying for everyone to say hillary clinton, joe biden is not working, can you run again? not everyone is saying that. not every democrat is saying that. a lot of senate democrats are saying i don't think it is a good idea. bill marr weighed in and said the clintons need to go away. >> hillary clinton, people are thinking she's thinking about running or says something crazy, the clintons. they've got to go away. i am saying this a year out. they can't beat the convention. maybe the big waving or something. i am serious. bill is damaged goods. they've got to go away.
6:09 am
>> sober and sensible viewers of the process believe that to be so but you can't get he goes out of the mix. anybody who gets beaten wants a rematch. hillary looks at the field and says too far left and joe has lost it. he doesn't have the mojo to beat trump. maybe i have a chance. i won the popular vote. you can't disregard the arrogance of someone who has it and drift into retirement has a chance to be first female president might not -- >> put the money together quickly -- >> said that about biden. >> maybe not. former colleagues are saying please don't run. i believe it is time for another nominee. i don't think it will be good for her, senator martin heinrich. that will be a mistake and joe manchin, absolutely not, manchin being more centrist. >> not in the moment when the
6:10 am
populace energy is so high and people are looking at elizabeth warren and bernie sanders, joe biden has not been able to penetrate the wave of the new movement and what democratic voting base wants. hillary clinton is terrible at campaigning. she may be good at a number of other things the campaign he is not one of them. there is no call for her to reenter. people say we need hillary clinton? i don't see it. >> it is like a gordian not. if you nominate elizabeth warren or a socialist you are not going to win. >> some headlines for you now. beginning with a fox news alert, california's largest utility company may have sparked a massive wildfire despite cutting power to prevent one. new video revealing the moment the kincaid fire broke out in one country near high-voltage power line. pg&e said the line wasn't deenergized and functions minutes before the fire.

>> legal team from michael full in filing an explosive motion that cbs -- house democrats are picking up the pace on the impeachment inquiry against the president planning to continue closed-door testimony today. our next guest says the secret meetings are not helping the country. thank you so much for being here this morning. you have a front row seat to secret in the basement impeachment inquiry. what is next? >> this is infuriating,
6:17 am
frustrating, and upsetting a lot of thoughtful and levelheaded members. i have asked for weeks to seek hurtful for's testimony, transcript of what he said where he said there was no quid pro quo. is a sitting member of congress are presenting 1 million floridians adam schiff won't allow me to see it so i walked down there with a number that is a number of members and demanded transparency. here's one of the things i learned. everything will hearing they are having in the secure facility has been announced as unclassified. there is no reason he's having them in the secure facility except to control the information that is coming out but it is unclassified so he can selectively leak to the
6:18 am
media. you and i thought all over the world from afghanistan to africa. those countries have more do process than what is going on here where at least the accused can have counsel present, the president can't have that and the defense can call their own witnesses and republicans can't do that either so this is a sham. >> looking from the outside, democrats believe they will attempt to impeach duly elected president of the united states based on no ability for the administration to hear or defend and then classify it so they can leak the things they like and you as a member of congress who would have to vote on this can't see the evidence for the testimony. >> i don't know more than what the mainstream media is reporting and that is unbelievable. the thing is there's historic precedent. rules set under nixon and clinton which were adopted by newt gingrich in fairness allowed for those -- counsel to be president, for the other side to call witnesses, coequal subpoena power but now we have nancy pelosi and adam schiff setting the rules that they
6:19 am
won't take it to a vote because they don't want to endanger their members for political reasons. >> i don't know what is a bigger story. that is huge but you have the revelation the doj review of the rushing investigation is now a criminal inquiry. what is your expectation of what we might learn? >> i want to understand how high this is. i cannot for a second believe that under the obama administration warrants were being issued and assets deployed for a presidential campaign months before the election and the white house didn't know about it. either the white house knew about it or the fbi was completely going rogue at a critical moment in our democracy and all these happened under obama.
6:20 am
i'm working on a bipartisan bill. we had florida county election databases penetrated by the russians and no one knew about it. congress wasn't informed, state election officials weren't informed, we are pushing for transparency across the board whether it is this impeachment or how the election system was being hacked. in 2016 under president obama and those officials. >> who was vice president at the time? >> joe biden. >> thank you for your time. a california sheriff deputy the 33rd law enforcement officer shot and killed in the line of duty this year. he leaves behind a wife and 3 children. making a difference to that family coming up. so, we got griswalda. dinner's almost ready. but one thing we could both agree on was getting geico to help with our renters insurance. yeah, switching and saving was really easy! drink it all up. good! could have used a little salt. visit geico.com and see how easy saving on renters insurance can be.

6:32 am
bill maher does not always thing from the democratic song sheet. he says you should engage, don't run away. he has been saying hillary clinton and bill clinton -- he is saying the squad endorsement of bernie sanders will boomerang and help elizabeth warren. >> the first thing i thought is that is good for elizabeth warren. it makes him to the left of her and needs to move to the middle. >> it is an admission the squad are loons. they may be in step with the far left that are out of touch with voters who will decide the election, getting their endorsement doesn't help. elizabeth warren is in the same boat. >> she is to us but people on
6:33 am
the far left she is not because she declared herself a capitalist and made some policy distinctions, people on the far left feels she is a fake socialist, she doesn't count. what bill maher was saying, he's talking about independent voters and who's more palatable to him. i think elizabeth warren would be more palatable than bernie sanders. >> tony katz was on. >> he disagreed with me and had a great expiration for why. >> you can't take someone who favors medicare for all her bands on guns or limiting the amount of ammunition you have and say they are in the middle. there is no way to do it. that is a living room kind of echo chamber thought process and it happens when bill maher thinks everyone wants to be in la when everybody wants to get out of la. elizabeth warren isn't the middle. >> when it comes to the general

election, these left-wing candidates -- >> they won't sierras middle but more in the middle than bernie sanders. >> i think they will see them all as a socialist grab bag. >> reporter: the green new deal, medicare for all. >> dream on. dramatic 911 call from fletcher cox. someone tried to break into his home and this happened next. >> any way you can lock yourself in a room? >> i am telling you right now my gun is on safety. >> new jersey police said the suspect tried barging in by throwing rocks at windows and a baseball bat as well. a defensive lineman did not
