3:02 am
washington d.c. with more on what happened the trial, garrett? reporter: two more days of the opening arguments from the president's defense team. we got a preview what we'll be hearing next week. those arguments from the president's defense team include the assertion that democrats are the ones trying to interfere in our election by removing president trump from the ballot in 2020. >> for all their talk about election interference, that they're here to perpetrate the most massive interference in an election in american history and we can't allow that to happen. reporter: sources close to the president to tell fox news he was very pleased with his team's opening arguments. on twitter he posted a fair-minded person watching senate trial would see how unfair i've been treated and the totally part sane impeachment
3:03 am
hooks that everybody including the dem knots truly knows what it is. this should never be allowed to happen again. senator minority leader chuck schumer senate's defense made the case for them yesterday. >> they made a really compelling case why the senate should call witnesses and documents. they kept saying there are no eyewitness accounts. but there are people who have eyewitness accounts. port for what the next week look likes. the president's defense team makes rest of opening arguments monday and tuesday. the senate will submit written questions for chief justice roberts to ask both sides. on friday, weville closing arguments. at that point the senate could decide to have additional documents or dismiss the case all together. lisa: thanks, garrett. pete: it was amazing to watch three days of arguments dismantled in two hours. when you breathless speculation.
3:04 am
we'll use every minute we have and subject the american people to it, and then you're going to hear the facts. griff: in fairness too, minority leader schuler as garrett was giving us the timeline, a couple more days of the defense team. then you have the questions, mark my word the questions will be scripted for the senators from each side. we don't know where that will go. it will that be day friday, when they start to deliberate over whether or not there will be witnesses. a vote will be taken, the clinton trial, what ended up happening a deal was brokered they deposed three people. lisa: not going to happen. griff: will that happen or will they get to an acquittal. pete: fair to say that. you watch the process, nothing transpired thus far doesn't make anyone believe that there are vets for additional witnesses. >> this is what democrats have done. they want to create the idea there is all this smoke and presume there was some fire. they did it with russian collusion. inevitably there was not any
3:05 am
fire. i don't think there was any fire. what i heard from the president's team yesterday, which makes sense, how do you have a quid pro quo that ukraine was not aware that the money was withheld until the "politico" article. when he is on the call with zelensky. zelensky doesn't know there is exchange happening. how can you have a quid pro quo with out any parties involved? nothing is being leveraged. makes zero sense what democrats. griff: senator ted cruz talking with judge jeanine agrees with you. >> i don't think it will be a motion to dismiss. >> what will it be? >> it will be a vote on additional witnesses. if we won't no witnesses are necessary. you will see a vote to proceed to final judgment. rather than we will dismiss the case we will go to judgment and acquit the president. we'll stand up and vote guilty or not guilty on each of the articles. it is better for the country not
3:06 am
for him to be found not guilty. lisa: pete, i don't think you will believe this. some in the media are saying that the trump team -- watch this real quick. i want -- >> i thought the president's lawyers did as effective job as possible presenting their client's case. i thought the tone was good. it was respectful. >> the republicans are winning here. the president is winning here. >> the presentation from the white house lawyers was good enough at least for some republican senators, that raised enough questions or sown enough doubt. i don't need to go there on the witness question any longer. pete: republicans are winning. you mentioned ukraine. so sick about hearing about ukraine. president's lawyers did a great job taking to next level. democrats said let's cancel an election over a meeting with ukraine. what pat cipollone asked you to
3:07 am
say, tear up the ballots on your own initiative, take that decision away from the american people. they're here, the democrats to perpetrate the most massive interference in an election in american history. and i think they have been smart to pull back from that, yes. refute the facts. they did that quickly. six points. boom, boom. ultimately why are we here? because they hate him and they dragged anything they can into the mix. griff: they elevated the conversation. remember there are go audiences. the senators sitting quietly with milk and in their chairs. lisa: no cookies. griff: the defense team introduced for the first time the question in the american public's decision on what they i think about all this. wait a minute. is this about trying to undo president trump's win? "wall street journal" pointing to, remember, president barack obama sitting with vladmir putin hey, hold off on missile defense until after i get elected. what is that? a president asking a foreign leader for a favor for his
3:08 am
personal self-interest for election. he wasn't impeached for that. now they put this out there. you will hear more about it. pete: time and time again they make it up. president's lawyers, talking to schiff, making up the opening statement. do me a favor. it was as you do us a favor. they misrepresent every turn. senator james lankford, thoughtful guy out of oklahoma, republican, talked about it will change a little bit when republicans get a chance to raise their points, watch. >> what i come back from proverbs 18:17. that famous proverb, the first to make a case seems right until they're cross-examined. today was the first day of cross-examination. we we got what i call historical fiction from the last three days from the house managers. say little bits of facts with a whole lot of fiction, speculation. today after piece, after piece, of the rest of the story over and over again. trying to be able to get actual
3:09 am
information out. very fact based. very concise. lisa: i'm such a bottom line person. give it to me trait. i don't need all the extra what every is going on here. look at the phone call between president trump and zelensky. both sides, including president zelensky, i never felt any pressure at anytime. i don't know why someone is drumming all this stuff. you got the fact the money was released actually in the correct amount of time anyway. also that the aid went further than what we've seen from the previous administration. one thing ironic, you have people like jerry nadler, chairman of the judiciary committee and he voted against ukrainian assistance in the most recent nvaa 2020. look at dynamics. bottom line, both parties say nothing happened that was out of the norm. pete: laying out the fact his team did in 15 minutes.
3:10 am
they could have adjourned right there. ultimately the bottom line is finally being addressed here. here is what happened. they adjourned in the senate, a bunch senators didn't want to be in the plane, headed to same spot, iowa. griff, eight or nine days from iowa? griff: february third. lisa: my birthday. pete: noted. happy birthday to lisa. we'll celebrate. these guys are climate change crusaders. turns out purportedly in the "new york post," bernie sanders socialist type, to charter private jet to campaign in iowa during impeachment. he needs a private jet. has limited amounts of time. has to meet up with the surrogates maybe mentioned his name yesterday. griff: reportedly on a private jet flying to iowa, aoc, his chief surrogate is making a case for "green new deal" that
3:11 am
doesn't involve jets, listen. >> we need a true, you true "green new deal" in this country. senator sanders has the largest plan in the field to address the climate crisis. the largest. [applause] i am here because we need true immigration justice in the united states of america. [cheers and applause] and, i'm not here to reform some of these systems, when we talk about immigration. i'm here because senator sanders has actually committed to breaking up i.c.e. and cbp. lisa: one thing that is interesting. i was still pretty wide open, if you look at some of the latest polling, one in four are still open to some degree and you look at this poll right now. this is for the democratic primary voters who would be first choice. sanders at 25. buttigieg at 18, biden at 17, warren at 15, klobuchar at
3:12 am
eight. one thing to think about, if you don't reach 15% with iowa caucuses. you become non-viable, the supporters have to take them someone else. pete: bernie sanders at 25%. he has largest plan. he is a socialist. a lunatic. aoc is spewing same stuff. michael moore. he is in senate chamber and surging? this shows you the heart of the democratic party. griff: sanders surging is peeking at exact moment. lisa: turning to the headlines, fox news alert, a third coronavirus case is confirmed in the united states overnight. doctors diagnosing an unidentified person with the virus in orange county, california. the patient is in isolation but in good condition. 56 people have died from the my known yaw-like illness in china as 2,000 cases are

3:27 am
we're experts you can't figure it out yourself. take this line, we think our users can make up their own mind. that is what mark zuckerberg says. hillary clinton says, that is trumpian, that is authoritarian. it is exact opposite. if you believe people are smart enough to make their own decisions. trump saying, i believe in free speech. i want to cut your taxes so you keep your own money. i want to reduce regulation to grow your own business. i will do criminal justice reform. what inside of that is authoritarian? it is not. they flip what they do back at trump. they're the authoritarians. we'll ban you from twitterer, which i currently am by the way, not to make it about me. that is unacceptable. you're banned. you're banned. you're shut down of the as opposed to zuckerberg saying this is free country. we'll figure out what's true or not. lisa: just a slippery slope to go down especially in political campaigns, look, everyone take asset of facts and puts their spin on it, right? it can really be subjective what is 100% truthful or not. you can look at any campaign,

and i recently had a heart attack. it changed my life. but i'm a survivor. after my heart attack, my doctor prescribed brilinta. it's for people who have been hospitalized for a heart attack. brilinta is taken with a low-dose aspirin. no more than 100 milligrams as it affects how well brilinta works. brilinta helps keep platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. in a clinical study, brilinta worked better than plavix. brilinta reduced the chance of having another heart attack... ...or dying from one.
3:30 am
don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor, since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. slow heart rhythm has been reported. tell your doctor about bleeding new or unexpected shortness of breath any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. if you recently had a heart attack, ask your doctor if brilinta is right for you. my heart is worth brilinta. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.

partner could use the embryo. as long as we're not giving the embryo life status, then you get into the whole abortion debate, you could use this to erode away at right to have abortion, as long as you focus on the law itself, either partner, either spouse could use the embryo, the other one waves their parental rights, that should have been applied here. it should have been retroactive. that way this woman who is unable to have children because of medical issues would have been able to use the embryo. either person, the man or woman could use it going forward. and when you actually enter into this contract, they shouldn't have given the court the right to actually determine who gets to use it. it should have been spelled out. that is what needs to happen going forward. lisa: why should one party's desire to be a parent outweigh the other's? >> because look, you can't, i'm going to use the term fatherhood, that is the issue here, you can't force fatherhood on somebody under these
3:47 am
circumstances. you're right, this case actually helped change the arizona law. i think arizona will be in the minority where either party who wants to bring that embryo to fruition can, if they treat i had in a divorce, they're splitting up embryo like their property now which i suppose makes sense but it may color the way people do this in the future. maybe you're not going to put your embryos on ice because you don't want that to happen. some people even though they wouldn't be responsible to pay child support, some people don't want a child who bears their dna running around they're never going to know. >> that is interesting, we're seeing more and more women use ibf this to have a child. where are the laws on this? you think this case leads to further law on federal level? or do the laws need to be changed right now? >> he will with the laws need to be changed. the state by state it is varying what they do in this situation. you've seen it in many different. lisa: where does federal law
3:48 am
land on this? >> that's a great question. it is really a state issue. >> contract law. >> what is actually interesting here they said they have to donate the embryos. this child could come to fruition and somebody else will be racing it. so really somebody, either mother or father should have the right to raise this child and have the right to determine whether or not it goes in your body. it is a ballness laking test. does the right to have a child outweigh the other person's rights? people get pregnant all the time and the father doesn't want that child. then they're stuck with the bill for 21 years at least here, they wouldn't be stuck with the bill. it is better to have the previously with the child as opposed to a stranger that you don't know. this is really a complex argument and complex issue. >> the father here had an opportunity to stand up say, you know what? , i don't love you anymore. we're divorced. i will not be responsible for this child. you do what i want.

the president's team, really summed up what we saw yesterday. listen. >> they've done more damage to the constitution and the institution of congress for that matter than anybody in recent network. i mean, adam schiff is engaged in this hyperpartisanship, this deceptive behavior, and they've weaponized impeachment, for what? they changed their view and their reasoning for supposedly impeaching donald trump so many times since he was elected and, of course, they committed to that before he even took the oath of office. you have to remember 95 house democrats voted to impeach donald trump before july of last year, before the phone call with zelensky that supposedly all of this is about. the whole thing is a sham. lisa: and to what he just said, i meaning he's precisely right. and that was also the case that they were laying out. this is all about politics, right? this isn't about the call with ukraine. and what you heard right there, i think, solidifies it in the

sense that the democrats were already voting for impeachment, i believe it was on july 17th, voting for an al green resolution paving the way for impeachment before that july 25th call even happened with president zelensky. pete: and the president's lawyers said they're asking you to tear up all the ballots all across the country on your initiative, take that decision away from the american people. they're here to perpetrate the most massive interference in an election in american history. can't allow that to happen. give frif that was a very poignant part yesterday. we look forward, let me show you what's going to happen this week. monday and tuesday, the president's defense team continues. wednesday, thursday we get to point where senators submit written questions to chief justice roberts. he'll then read them to the defense and to the house managers to give their answers x. if then we expect that, by the way, will go about 16 hours. by friday we expect house managers and the defense team each have two hours for closing

arguments after which the subpoena -- the senate may vote to subpoena witnesses and documents or end the case with a vote to dismiss or acquit. it's worth note anything 1999 in the impeachment trial of bill clinton, they kind of cut a deal, and they video deposed three witnesses including lewinsky, monica knew bin sky, and then -- lewinsky, and then they used excerpts. they pushed by the way, to get it done quickly. pete: i understand the need doing collude that as a possibility. but based on to offensive, the way in which the house managers on the democrat side talked down to and basically offended republican senators and when the white house had the chance to rebut that and cross-examine, i see almost no scenario except for memory who just hates president trump -- for mitt romney who just hates president trump. there's no appetite at all to vote for witnesses. we just laid out next week. iowa caucuses on monday, state of the union on tuesday the week after, after, that you've got to

[inaudible conversations] griff: cannot keep from commenting. she's still the standard-bearer. pete: she's still the former

4:09 am
the next midterm election, no doubt about that. in her mind it happened wednesday, it must happen again. the argument, i think, on the other side if you make such a flimsy case against a popular president, president trump, actually voting for that impeachment could hurt you politically. so it can go either way. in this case it's not clear the democrats are benefiting from this at all. lisa: both parties are making political considerations, right? pete: isn't it about the constitution? lisa: you look at the house, you've got a lot of democrats running in trump districts that he won in 2016 that are running for election, you know, running for re-election in 2020. and on the senate side, both parties have political considerations because, sure, susan collins is facing a tough re-election, but so is doug jones in alabama, a state that president trump won by double digits. both sides are kind of looking at the political considerations as well. governor give absolutely. and i'm sure democrats in the senate, chuck schumer, would love to create an untenable
4:10 am
situation for witnesses that makes them get the senate back, but that's a far cry each at this point even while we know acquittal is how this all ends to begin with. meanwhile, one senator who's busting to get out to iowa is bernie sanders because he is surging which in the political world we call perfect timing ahead of the caucuses. let us show you the latest poll, new york times/cnn poll. sanders, 25%. buttigieg, 18%. bind, 17%. warren, 15%, klobuchar, 8%. significant because it was just a few months ago that warren was at 22%, she's now down to 15. as you pointed occupant, it's the threshold where you don't want to be. pete: this impeachment was supposed to hurt senators stuck in washington d.c. instead, the out and out socialist who's got michael moore and every leftist out there campaigning for him is surging, is representing the soul of the democrat party in
4:11 am
iowa. it's going to be very interesting to see if that number inches higher. lisa: but despite the fact sanders is surging, elizabeth warren's been on the receiving end of some endorsementings. "the des moines register"s says elizabeth warren can push an unequal america in the right direction. is so, you know, interesting that, you know, they're making some of their preferences known here. griff: biden's getting some love here in sioux city. the sioux city journal says, here's the headline: biden represents best choice in iowa caucuses. point is, two big papers in the state going against sanders. he's surging at the right time and those endorsements, i predict, will throw gasoline on the fire. lisa: both very progressive democrats unlike what we saw with elizabeth warren and klobuchar. pete: if sanders wins in iowa and he's ahead in new hampshire, look out. griff: we shall see.

opportunity of momentum, and she's his top surrogate in iowa. >> yeah. this is what happens when you bring true believers together, and they are true believers. people better start understanding this, especially the democratic party, which clearly despises bernie sanders and is doing everything possible to get him out of the race. these true believers if bernie is not the candidate, they won't show up for, in november. they won't show up even no matter how much they dislike donald trump. the true believers want these kinds of things. they want it all, and if they don't get it all, they're not showing up. and the democratic party, i think, is really starting to become aware of this reality. griff: you're looking at michael moore speaking, and i remember covering him here when he was endorsing, essentially, sanders. he's making the case that sanders is the only non-phony
4:34 am
washingtonian running for office. is so when you talk about true believers in this argument being made by moore and aoc, that he's the only genuine candidate in the race, is that effective? is that part of why we're seeing the surge in support? >> if we're talking about millennials, the answer is, yes. even jim messina, the former campaign manager for barack obama, recognizes and has talked about the fact that the millennial group and others see bernie sanders as somebody who's been consistent throughout. joe rogan gave bernie sanders his endorsement, and the left doesn't even want the true believers. [laughter] so, yes, they see this consistency as valuable, they see him as somebody who isn't phone know, who is really committed. what he's committed to should have him committed. [laughter] lisa: tony, elizabeth warren is seeing a dip in the polls, but she's getting an endorsement from the des moines register. this is what they have to say about her: the outstanding
4:35 am
caliber of democratic candidates makes it difficult to choose just one. at this moment when the very fabric of life at stake, elizabeth warren is the president this nation needs. my question, tony, if elizabeth warren loses the iowa caucuses, is it overrer if her her? -- overrer if her? >> it's good to know "the des moines register" has come to the side of san francisco. she's in fourth place in iowa, fourth place in new hampshire, and she lives next door. she's stall falling like a stone in nevada and south carolina. and in iowa keep an eye out again for what it is amy klobuchar can do. it's really bad news for her if she doesn't come in the top three in iowa, it's devastating, as i see it, if she doesn't win new hampshire. griff: let's look at a poll here, warren has fallen to fourth, 15%. a few months ago she was at 22%. sanders on top the at 25.
4:36 am
buttigieg holding still in about second place, 18%. klobuchar's at the bottom of the poll, 8%. does she really see any if chance? >> klobuchar has been rising, and i think some people are saying, you know what? let's go for somebody we think is rational. pete buttigieg peaked too early. it's an expectations -- lisa: isn't klobuchar too boring? >> i don't know what you consider boring in today's field. have you watched some of these debates? they're all pretty dang boring. it's a question of whether or not they see other people as too radical, which is why "the des moines register" endorsement understood can -- doesn't make sense. they say her policies aren't radical. yeah, right. she believes in getting rid of the cap pal gain -- capital gains, $52 trillion on health care, dear lord. what doesn't she believe?
4:37 am
pete: one thing we haven't mentioned, and it's michael bloomberg. when this segment ends and we go to commercial break, people are probably going to watch a 30-second commercial about michael bloomberg. how does he factor boo all this? >> he factors in as a guy who gets the perception of being a rational guy, and he certainly seems more enjoyable than the rest of this field. money talks in this case, and he's willing to do a whole lot of talking. griff: tony katz, thank you for joining us. pete: appreciate it. lisa: thanks, tony. pete: he's so committed they should have him committed. turning now to some headlines, including a tough one. two people are dead and seven ores hurt in a shooting in a south carolina bar. police say it happened at mark's lounge in hartsville. unclear what led to the shooting. victims' conditions are unknown at this time. and goldman sachs wants more

4:45 am
of media attention, and i think the recent news has been -- the motion -- [inaudible] used very strong language saying the case was filed in bad faith. meanwhile, i represent the parents in this terrible tragedy, and what they've said in their filing to dismiss was sam, the grandfather, was in leaning out the window. we are in a ship two weeks ago, and we showed that to be definitively incorrect. there's a very unique configuration with this window with a railing. and so what you see in the video is him leaning over the railing, but that's not him lean aring tout the window. we're saying there's this false narrative that's being told by royal caribbean. griff: so in your accounting of what you believe led to chloe's death, what do you say happened? >> excellent question. and i think what happened is this old ship of royal caribbean, the freedom of the seas, is not complying with the industry standard which is to follow a very well defined set
4:46 am
of window fall prevention laws. some people say this is a freak accident, it's not. roughly 5,000 children fall out of windows every year, so if they had followed the industry standard like newer ships do, chloe would still be here. to beliefly talk about that -- briefly, either you have windows that don't open, or have some kind of screening or grate system. if any of those were in place, chloe would till be here. griff: we reached out to royal caribbean, they issued this statement: it has prompted a criminal prosecution of chloe's ten grandfather, and we will not comment on the ongoing legal proceeding. i want the ask you, michael, why do you think royal caribbean, in your opinion, isn't being forthcoming? >> well, i think a lot of it has to do with the significant level of media attention that this case has gotten. i mean, my firm has been doing this for nearly 50 years, we've
4:47 am
handled success hundreds of cases against all the cruise lines. they're extremely upset by the amount of media attention, and i think really since day one they've been trying to point the finger at sam rather than take responsibility for the failure to follow the industry standard of these window fall prevention codes. i think that's why they're so upset. griff: i mean, look, the death of an infant, a child is undeniably tragic, so how is the family doing? >> terribly. i mean, they would be doing terrible as is. i have a 4 and a 5-year-old, so this case has hit home and it's more of a cause than a case. and really from day one this was not just about the tragedy, but it was wanting to use the tragedy as something positive because if even one child is saved in any situation not just with on a cruise ship, but even at a hotel or at home, it's a good thing. but how is family doing? not well. and the fact that this criminal prosecution continues against the grandfather is really
4:48 am
terrible. they didn't want it from the beginning, they still don't want it, and hopefully what we have uncovered in the ship inspection and accident reconstruction opens the eyes of the prosecution and leads to them dropping the charges. griff: all right. michael, thank you very much for joining us, and we'll be continuing to follow this case. please come back if anything develops. thank you very much. all right, coming up, virginia house lawmakers advance its controversial gun control measures despite tens of thousands of pro-gun advocates rallying against the bills. is virginia just the beginning of a nationwide push against guns? we'll discuss it. plus, the climate change debate wading into impeachment as some democrat senators running for president say with the trial, they're forced to take private jets. our next guest is calling out the hypocrisy. stay tuned. ♪ ♪ when crabe stronger...strong, with new nicorette coated ice mint.

6:02 am
investigations, but how can that possibly be when the ukrainians were not even aware that the security assistance was paused? there can't be a threat without the person knowing he's being threatened. there can't be a quid pro quo without the quo. >> reporter: sources close to the president tell fox news he was very pleased with his team's opening argument. on twitter he posted: any fair-minded person watching the trial today would see how unfairly i have been treated and that this is, indeed, the totally partisan impeachment hoax that democrats truly know it is. this should never be allowed to happen again. democrats are demanding the senate allow additional documents and witnesses, and minority leader chuck schumer argues the president's defense made that case for them on saturday. >> they made a really compelling case for why the senate should call witnesses and documents. they kept saying there are no eyewitness accounts. finish but there are people who
6:03 am
have eyewitness accounts. >> reporter: the president's defense team will make the rest of their opening arguments monday and tuesday. as for the rest of the week, wednesday and thursday senators will submit written questions to chief justice john roberts x then the senate will decide to vote on the articles of impeachment or vote for additional witnesses and documents. if the latter happens, it's not clear how much longer this trial could go on for because of the court fight that would likely follow over potential witnesses that both sides would likely have to be called. griff: and, you know, right there. when we get to that moment after the senators' questions and you get the two hours making their final case, it's going to be, mark my word, all about witnesses. and if we get to the point where it goes into a deal or any brokering, it's going to take on a life of its own, and it's going to tremendously impact those four senators trying to get back out to campaign trail.

6:05 am
legal come for president trump's team -- counsel for president trump's team, he said there can't -- someone can't be threatened when they don't know there's a threat, right? the ukrainians didn't even know the money was being withheld until more than a month after the phone call. and you can't have a quid pro quo when the other party doesn't know there's a quo. so i think in a mere matter of a minute, however long that was, he entirely crushed the whole premise of the democrats' argument. griff: but what the house democrat managers are saying is that we need to speak to mick mulvaney, we need to speak to john bolton -- lisa: least but why? dpruf give dan bongino took issue, and he made a strong case about it. here's what dan had to say. >> they completely decimated, destroyed and annihilated the really awful, horrible case adam schiff and the rest of the crew tried to make.

and you can see there biden on top now 26 points. it is down 4 points from december. sanders, 23 points, but he's up 3. which is significant. he's growing, of course, we see him surging in iowa. this, again, is national. warren, 14%, up 1 point. bloomberg, that is the difference here in polling now. 5 points up from december at 10%. buttigieg at the bottom of this list at 7%. lisa: you know what i find so interesting, okay, so joe biden's entire argument is i'm the most electable candidate, right? so if he potentially loses iowa, if he loses new hampshire which is probable, completely possible, how does he make that argument heading into nevada -- pete: becomes much more difficult, especially with michael bloomberg looming with his billions and super tuesday coming. you look at this poll, first of all, a couple of caveats. it's all democratic primary poll, ors -- it's a national
6:08 am
poll, and also the margin of error is 4%. if you look at the top, sanders and biden are tied within the margin of error which trends with what we've seen with bernie sanders going up. joe biden cheerily has taken a hit as his name and his son's name have been all over national media, and you can't ignore michael bloomberg, what $300 million can buy you as far as name id. in my mind, and this is just one man's opinion, this could quickly become a three-person race between biden, sanders and bloomberg. bloomberg's got money. sanders surges and warren durant catch on -- doesn't catch on, and pete buttigieg can only stick around for so long with 6 or 7% if he doesn't do well this early states. in that case you got, basically, a system yet again looking at bernie sanders, the democratic establish withment, hillary clinton's talked about how much she hates bernie sanders, trying to prevent the socialist from being their nominee.
6:09 am
griff: they're going to have to ultimately run against the trump economy. and our fox poll also asked a question about who's most responsible for our current economy. trump now 42%, as you can see. that's up. and, of course, obama now at 9%. by the way, also factoring at 7%. but if you look at the trajectory there, it's really quite apart that the democrats, no matter who it is, if it's sanders and warren to the far left of the party or a bloomberg or a biden more on the moderate, you've got to run against that booming economy, a booming stock market and wages on the rise. lisa: so if it's joe biden or bernie sanders, here's the challenge they're going to face with a strong economy. if it's joe biden, he's going to remind everyone of the past. why do you want to go backwards if the economy's strong now? if it's bernie sanders, he's calling for massive, massive
6:10 am
scale change, right? huge, huge change, a revolution. why do you want a revolution if the economy's strong? pete: the economic aspect of the democratic argument has always been a difficult one and especially as it remains strong further away from the obama administration. in that poll that's national registered voters, so we're out of the democrats, we're everybody now. and when you look at those numbers for obama taking credit, initially you could look at democrats who are saying, well, this is really just a continuation of obama. okay, maybe i could hear your argument. but the further you get away, the more the reality sets in that this is something trump has unleashed. the animal spirit, as charles payne talks about, capitalism, has been unleashed because of the policies he's put in place. and voters just can't give crept to obama anymore, it has to be president trump. griff: even if you give president obama the starting credit, it is the deregulation on the whole that led to the booming wall street that we have. voters aren't stupid, they get
6:11 am
that. they think, wait a minute, if i get a sanders or warren, they're going to undo all of that deregulation, and that means my bottom line falls. lisa: energy is taking away from fossil fuel which means killing jobs, paying more for electricity, things like that. also tax reform laws made a big difference for middle class families. pete: but if you're looking for that moderate democrat, it hopes to know what state they're in and what day of the week it is. and with joe biden -- lisa: he might challenge you to a push-up contest. pete: i would welcome that. turning now to your headlines, starting with a fox news alert, a third coronavirus case confirmed in the u.s. u.s. overnight, doctors diagnosing a person in orange county, california. the patient is in isolation in good condition. two other cases have been confirmed in washington state and chicago. airports across the country are screening for the virus as the

6:17 am
republicans feeling relieved. lisa: fox news contributor and chief political correspondent for the washington examiner, byron york joins us live. hi, byron. >> good morning. lisa: michael purpura went on to say there's no case here what he said, you can't have a threat if the person doesn't know if they're being threatened. and what he was referencing the fact the ukrainians didn't know until after a month that this foreign assistance was even being withheld. so is that the case that the trump team should keep pushing? >> well, this is something that really encouraged and heartened a lot of republicans yesterday. you have to remember we're in the fourth -- we've been through four months of this since nancy pelosi unilaterally declared an impeachment investigation on september 24th, and in all that time the trump white house has not mounted an overarching, comprehensive defense. you heard the prime minister say this or re-- the president say
6:18 am
this or republicans say this in his defense, but not until this week have we seen this kind of comprehensive defense. and the president's lawyers began making that in kind of a preview of coming attractions for two hours yesterday. a lot of republicans said this is pulling together all the things, all the evidence in the president's defense, and it's a good thing it's finally happening. griff: when you used the word relieved, what is that a reaction to? just what argument will they make, how will it be received, what do you mean by that? >> if you remember, the republicans have a lot of legitimate objections to the process that house democrats created in the house of representatives. there are a lot of process complaints. there were so many that some democrats are saying that's all the republicans have, that's all the president has. he cannot defend himself on the facts. and i think what we saw yesterday -- and, by the way, it came out of a memo that the president's lawyers filed on monday -- was that they
6:19 am
confronted the facts head on and said here are the facts, a, b, c, d, e, f. and these will show you why the democrats' case is unfounded and why it falters. so that was the thing that heartened republicans, that the trump defenders instead of relying completely on process, which they have legitimate questions, also confronted the facts of the case. lisa: so staying on the process, so part of the next question we're going to see is witnesses, should there be additional witnesses. senators are going to have to go on record voting one way or another. if republicans deny witnesses, does that end up giving democrats a process argument? >> well, everybody's going to have some argument coming out of this, however it ends up. but i think republicans have a strong argument by saying, look, the house of representatives impeached the president. they say the case is comprehensive, they say the case overwhelming. and now they're saying, wait a
6:20 am
minute, we need you to do more. and i think a lot of republicans are legitimately concerned that it creates a bad precedent where the house passes a kind of a halfway impeachment and then tries to shame the senate into doing all the work that the house didn't do. pete: byron, great point. thanks for breaking it down for us. we're always relieved when you're here -- [laughter] we know we get some sanity. >> thank you, both. pete: all right. mexican security forces stopping another migrant caravan at the guatemala/mexican border, so is this proof the president's administration, their policies, are working? lisa: we'll ask acting cbp commissioner mark more began, and that's next -- mark morgan, and that's next. only pay for what you need... only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪

griff, over to you. griff: more migrants heading north are being stopped in mexico. this video from thursday as mexican officials confronted another caravan at the guatemala/mexico border. there are reports it started out with about 4,000 migrants. so is mexico's crackdown proof the trump administration's policies are working? joining us now to react is cbp acting commissioner mark morgan. good morning to you. what do you make of how mexico handled this one? >> outstanding. and let's keep in mind, what the government of mexico is doing is what every sovereign nation does. they're going to enforce the rule of law and make sure they maintain integrity that's what mexico's doing the right now with this caravan. and make no mistake, this president and this administration, the network of initiatives and policies working with the government of mexico, mexico has really joined the united states as true partnerrings greater than they ever have before as well as
6:26 am
partnership with the countries in central america to really address this as a regional crisis. that's what you're seeing with what mexico doing with this latest caravan. griff: commissioner, can you put in perspective that, basically, this all began at the end of 2018 when the first caravan rushed across the bridge there in guatemala where you're looking at that, they overran things. the liberal president of mexico let things just sort of unfold, get out of control, that led to your crisis. now fast forward to today and our best partner appears to be mexico before it's a problem on our border. >> that's -- griff, you just outlined it perfectly. before, as you're describing, they actually used to facilitate these caravans transiting through the byer country of mexico to reach -- the entire country of mexico to reach our board. make no mistake, the organizers of these caravans are doing it for their own financial or political gain because they are lying to these individuals

6:28 am
impede and funnel those drug smugglers to the ports where we have an offensive advantage. the wall works and it's necessary to keep this country safe. griff: and we're just about out of time, commissioner, but there are critics saying you're not building new wall, just fixing existing wall. where does that stand? >> that's absolutely a false narrative. every mile that's being built is a brand new wall system. we've got over 110 miles, and i'm absolutely confident by the end of 2020 we're going to have 450 miles of wall system in the ground. griff: all right. mark morgan, thank you for joining us. >> thanks. griff: still ahead, hillary clinton saying nobody likes bernie sanders. this morning she's addressing the pushback. plus, we're getting ready for the super bowl on fox with the hoe down between kansas city's barbecue and san francisco's crab dip. we've got the best just ahead. yum. ♪ ♪ could switching to geico really save
