daytona 500. pete: newman's car hit a wall flipped and crashed into another car during the final lap on monday. he's hospitalized in serious condition but his injuries, thankfully, not life-threatening. steve: after the crash, cup series driver core la joy coreye was hit. he joins us this morning. >> good morning, guys. steve: we saw it from the tv point of view. you were a couple of cars back. explain what happened through your windshield. what you saw. >> it's hard to really describe it because it's all kind of snapshots. steve: yeah. when i'm going back and running through my head. i saw ryan get -- i saw a light colored car get hooked, which is common. in a speedway race because you are going for the daytona 500 win so you are trying to do everything you can to block and get your car across the finish line first. so i saw one car get hooked.
3:41 am
and after that, you are going 205 or so miles per hour. all you see is a wall of smoke. and you are obviously not wanting to have any damage. you are wanting to cross the finish line as fast as possible. next thing i know the smoke cleared for a split second and i had a car sitting on my lap more or less. i didn't know where i hit him. i didn't know who i hit. i came to a halt and got out because my car was on fire. and the wind was knocked out of me. and i was trying to collect my thoughts and just figure out what happened. we finished what would be -- we finished eighth which is great day for out go fast team. i was trying to collect my thoughts. i didn't know the extent of the crash or where i hit ryan until -- i didn't even know who i hit until i got out of infield care center and they told me they took ryan right to the hospital. which obviously scared me because ryan has been a good
3:42 am
friend to the garage and he has been around for almost two decades now. and i think everybody in the nascar community would agree that ryan is probably the toughest guy in the garage. so there is no question he is going to make a full recovery and be back soon. ainsley: that's great. he is 42 years old. tell us more about him. i know you are a close nit clost family. tell us what you are hearing from the family. >> i haven't heard directly from the family. i hear from social media and some inside sources. not too much-i i'm trying to give those guys their privacy. but the fact that ryan is talking to doctors and his family, i think it's a miracle. and i think it just goes to show the power of prayer from the nascar community and all the fans because that is the most vulnerable spot to be hit on a race car. it was a compromised position for him to be. in everyone knows ryan is one of the bigger guys in the cup series. it was just a recipe for
3:43 am
disaster that was diverted just from the safety advances that nascar has made over the past 10 or 12 years or so. so, that just goes to show, man, nascar has invested a lot of money in keeping the cars and the drivers safe as well as trying to put a good product on the racetrack. pete: cory, a remind of what a dangerous sport it is. when you are on that last lap of the daytona 500. are you bracing for something knowing that people are going to make a move and what's going through your mind? are you hoping it will finish clean but wondering if something like this is going to happen? was this a surprise? >> it's not a surprise. i mean, i think everybody, as soon as you see a white flag fly at a super speedway race. everybody is reaching up and pulling the belts tight. you know the next flag whether it's the caution or checkered is where you are going to end up. you really commit to going more or less hell or high
3:44 am
water across the finish line with a the steering wheel especially the daytona 500 that's the granddaddy of them all. as we have seen in several times years past coming in to the checkered flag are the most dangerous because you really -- it's hard to slow down. it really is. you are going so fast. you are referrally committed to try to get a good finish. unfortunately that was a worse case scenario for ryan and myself because i took a big lick, too. i'm really sore but not as sore and i was very lucky to come out of there unscathed. steve: cory, we are looking at the still pictures and we see the smoke. something happened ryan's car got hooked you said and there was the smoke. and there was a car. and it was flipping on you. when you saw that car coming at you, and you were going 200 miles per hour and they were going 200 miles per hour, what did you think was
3:45 am
going to happen? >> honestly i didn't see it. i was trying -- i had no clue where he was at. by that point in the race your windshield is pitted up from rocks and it has dry on it already looking through a foggy surface to begin with pair that with smoke and just the concentration of trying to get to the finish line and you are almost trying to look through whatever obstacle is in front of you. next thing i know he was sight on my lap. i just really wanted to touch on there was some people giving ryan blainy a hard time. there is no difference. steve: who is ryan blainy? >> ryan blainy was the yellow car behind ryan newman that gave him the shot ryan was going to win the race. ryan, i know, him and i are really good buddies and certainly meant no ill will. is he obviously tore up about it just the fact that ryan is a great friend of the garage, ryan newman that is we are, like you said, we
3:46 am
are a small community. we travel together for 38 weekends out of the year. and we certainly don't want to see anybody get hurt. it was no fault to ryan. both ryans were going for the win in the biggest race of the year. ainsley: cory, i know you are asked this all the time going almost 200 miles per hour, it's a very dangerous sport. why do you do it. >> i get that question asked a lot. i love it, it's a great job. it's a great platform to influence people charity stuff i get to work with. and you get to be a pretty cool, you know, i guess i could change that and say it really puts in perspective sometimes where you almost feel invincible when you put that that helmet on and strapped in a race car. we have all been in countless crashes and walked out unscathe. it puts one moment like that to put in perspective how dangerous our jobs are. the fans sometimes take that
3:47 am
for granted, too. when we strap in each and every week, we put our lives on the line. because we love it. because it's our dream to do. and we just appreciate the fans coming out to support us and all the support they have been showing us the last couple days. steve: that's right. ainsley: you entertain america. thanks for what you do for charity. he and hesitate wife gave up a month salary back in the fall in august give all of that month's salary to children that don't have shoes around the world. samaritan's feet. thank you so much. steve: very cool. pete: corey lajoie, thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you very much. ainsley: so snug in those cars. steve: there is no moving. ainsley: they didn't know the crash had happened or the severity of it until they got out of the cars. jillian has headlines for us. jillian: good morning to you and to you at home as well. the victim of a baby kidnapping plot is speaking out. the mother says julia parker posed as a photographer to take free photos of her newborn baby in washington

jillian: both cambridge and nearby boston are sanctuary cities. hillary clinton shut down rumors she could be michael bloomberg's running mate. the former secretary of state was asked about the possibility at an event in puerto rico. clinton responding in part saying, quote: oh, no. i'm just waiting and watching as this plays out. i will support whoever the nominee is. last week the drudge report claimed bloomberg was considering clinton as his running mate, citing sources from the team. ainsley: so hillary is not saying no. she says i'm watching and waiting. steve: if asked, she would do it. ainsley: thank you, jillian. steve: meanwhile, this number is shocking. nearly 400,000 illegal migrants caught entering our country claim they were members of a family and the family was together. and you know what? they were all released. our next guest lives and works at the border and calls it one giant scheme. hear from him next.

steve: as president trump cracks down on the crisis at our border, a new report says border patrol released over 375,000 illegal migrants who claim to be traveling in family units into to the united states.
3:54 am
here with reaction is former dhs agent and founder of operation underground railroad tim fowler joins us live. tim, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: you say this is a gigantic scheme. >> hugesteve: by who. >> criminal organizations on the united states. we have a horrible policy in place. ou automatically get access into the states and you get a notice to appear. steve: right. >> so the criminal organizations who immigrants, illegal immigrants are hiring they go to these guys and say look, i will give you $5,000. help me. in here is a child. they are kidnapping children in central america. steve: to use them as props. >> use them as pawns to get them in, they are props, exactly to get them in. 76,000 unaccompanied minors are in the care of the united states government. those are the ones that the border patrol agents caught. imagine the ones they didn't catch that are in our country being hurt and trafficked. we are the number one consumers of child sex consumption in the world, right? so, a lot of these kids are now in our child sex
3:55 am
markets. it's horrific fraud. steve: do you know what? the president has talked about this, tim, and he said look. they are not always family units. they might say yep, we are a family unit, but our agents, like you, know that that is just a lie to get in because then we are never going to see them again. >> with so many people coming across, our border agents don't have time to vet every single one, thank goodness they vetted who they could and 76,000 kids were thankfully rescued. but the president has put forth amazing policies that are curbing this. by deincentivizing the traffickers. you can't give them this loophole basically what they are doing. the wait in mexico program where, you know, you don't get to come in with a kid anymore. that has to be the policy if we want to protect children. steve: you say this is another one of the reasons why we need the wall as well. >> absolutely. the wall basically pushes traffic in through the ports of entry to law enforcement officers who are trained to look for trafficked children. that's how you save children. the wall saves children. steve: when you tell people this story, you know a lot
3:56 am
of people don't realize. this they go well, you know, laws are the laws, and they are working for everybody. but this is obviously still a loophole. >> i tell people if you focus the solutions on the children in this world who are being hurt, things become very clear what you need to do. steve: no kidding. tim ballard former dhs agent and founder of operation underground railroad. thank you very much. >> thank you. steve: straight ahead on this wednesday, some are crying foul over attorney general bill barr's handling of the roger stone case. where was the outrage when apparently president obama's attorney general eric holder got involved in political cases as well? a double standard? let's talk about that next. ♪ i want no trouble ♪ i want no trouble ♪ ready to juvéderm® it? correct age-related volume loss in cheeks with juvéderm® voluma™ xc. add fullness to lips with juvéderm® ultra xc.

4:01 am
on the stage tonight. but apparently the bloomberg people say they have a ton of opposition research on bernie. brian: best money can buy. steve: no kidding. ainsley: 8 candidates on the democratic side still in the race. six of them on the debate stage, steyer and gabbard did not make the cut. but bloomberg made the cut by the skin of his teeth a few days ago. they changed the rules for him. he will be up there and we will get to hear from him the first time since. pete: who knows how many debates we will have with him. ainsley: president is doing a four day trip. steve: president started flying to california. president trump touched down in las vegas overnight during that campaign swing to campaign on all sorts of issues and raise some money. ainsley: he is going to hold three rallies in three days. and he is wasting no time slamming democratic leaders in california. pete: our own kristin fisher joins us with more from the white house on the president's trip. kristin, good morning. >> good morning, guys. this is unusually long domestic trip for president
4:02 am
trump. he will be on or very near the west coast for about four days. and his first stop or one of his first stops is to a state that he has really been at odds with for most of his presidency. i'm talking about california. one of the first stops he made was to a fundraising dinner in beverly hills last night. but, first, he went to a meeting with organizers of the 2028 olympic games what you are seeing there. during that meeting the president was asked a question about the rising number of homeless people in that state. here was his response. >> you have needles, you have things that we don't want to discuss all over the streets flowing into the oceans. and, you have beaches. and it shouldn't happen. and if they can't do it themselves we are going to do it. the federal government is going to take it over and we're going to do it. >> so far no direct response to those comments from the state's governor. the city's mayor. speaker pelosi or chairman schiff. it's as who who of the president's least favorite
4:03 am
politicians. he has been battling with california's democratic leaders on everything from impeachment typically congratulation to environmental regulations. and tonight president trump is going to be taking his message to phoenix, arizona for a big rally there. then tomorrow, it's on to another rally in colorado springs. and then finally on friday, a big rally in vegas, just one day before the state's caucuses, guys? steve: all right, kristin, thank you. i was reading in the "l.a. times" about the president who was in los angeles yesterday and did a fundraiser. also met with the olympic committee for 2028. and wit at one point after he was done with the meeting at the montage beverly hills talking with reporters how los angeles and san francisco are sanctuary cities and the homeless problem has gotten so bad out there. he said it was very dangerous. he said both of the cities, san francisco and los angeles had one thing in common and that was the leadership. and he said he was very
4:04 am
specific, taking aim at the democratic leaders of l.a. he said if l.a. does not clean it up fast, if they can't do it themselves, we're going to do it for them. and he is talking about the federal government. ainsley: it's a big problem out there. because every time we interview someone from california, we will ask them how bad of a problem is it really? it's terrible. it's ruining businesses. people are camping out in front of their businesses. they work really hard. they have to move business locations because they are stepping in all kinds of junk while they're trying to get to the front door of their houses or businesses. pete: perfect preview of left wing lawlessness where you care so much you don't care at all. ultimately citizens who pay the price in that scenario. and it's predictable. and, yet, here we are on the debate stage where a socialist who calls himself a democratic socialist is prohibitive national frontrunner of the democrat party. and advancing precisely those kinds of policies for the entire country. if you want a preview, take a look. steve: i have got news for
4:05 am
you. there is a terrible homelessness problem in new york city. have you noticed the number of people around this midtown area who are homeless? every night? we notice because we come in in the middle of the night and it's freezing. and there they are out on the grate. it's heart breaking. ainsley: our church has something on friday nights and wednesday nights feed the homeless. homeless population can go on every single night and every meal basically they can get a meal at one of these locations. we do it on wednesday at lunch and friday night. pete: faith groups and charitable groups step in the gaps so often in so many places. if the government knew how to let the free market work or enforce the rule of law the way they should in inner cities maybe there wouldn't be as work to be done. steve: let's talk about this before he left for his west coast trip, the president of the united states either pardoned or commuted the sentences of 11 people
4:06 am
yesterday. one of them, we know him as -- there he is robb blagojevich. he was a democrat convicted of 17 charges of corrupt providg political favors in exchange for financial benefits including trying to solicit campaign money in return for, remember president obama's senate seat? how much are you willing to pay for this essentially. he was serving a 14-year prison sentence in colorado. the president, yesterday, on the tarmac, at joint base andrews said that the sentence was ridiculous in length and it did not fit his crime. ainsley: the president is serious about nonviolent offenders with disproportionate sentences. we saw what he did with alice maria johnson. he served blagojevich served 18 of the 14 years. 18 -- eight of the 14 years. he wanted to eat a banana split without nuts because his daughter is allergic.
4:07 am
no nuts because his daughter is religious. pete: can't get hair die in prison. ainsley: age or stress? pete: probably both. also pardoned bernie kerik amongst other people as well. steve: nonetheless, blagojevich came out and those are the people that we might as well put it up for a moment, again. we will show the pardons and the commutations. people who are famous eddie debartolo the guy from the 49ers. bernie kerik. commutations rod blagojevich who had this to say after he was released. listen. >> i speak for patty for my daughters amy and annie and me when i express our most profound and everlasting gratitude to president trump for doing what he did. he didn't have to do this. he is a republican president. i was a democratic governor. and my fellow democrats don't treat him very good.
4:08 am
ainsley: he said he was grateful to the president. steve: he said if you are asking me what my party affiliation is. he went on to say i'm a trumpo-crat. ainsley: he got to go home six years early i'm sure is he grateful. pete: talked to the guy from ohio who drives a truck and supports the president. 25% of the people at the rallies are democrat. almost none of them have been to a political rally before. that's a fact. i have been there. i have seen it. trump owocrats you can mock it whatever you think it's a thing. steve: eddie debartolo sentenced to two years probation and received 1-million-dollar fine in '98 after pleading guilty to filing felony, after he paid $400,000 to former louisiana governor edwin edwards in exchange for a river boat
4:09 am
gambling license. and as it turns out a couple of football greats were at the white house yesterday talking about eddie and what the president did for him. >> i take my hat off to donald trump for what he did. 30 years ago i got the opportunity to play the greatest game ever nfl football. and it was because of eddie debartolo. he has done so much in the community and so much for nfl football and today is a great day for him. >> eddie d debart to low is a great man. i'm here to support him. i'm behind the humanity and he has done a great, great fredged of mine. ainsley: i think that's really sweet. you serve your time. you ask for forgiveness. and now you have a second chance at life.
4:10 am
pete: apparently been involved with charter school and anti-gang violence initiatives done good after getting caught up in that. steve: meanwhile, once again, tonight's big debate out in las vegas. and you got to figure that because michael bloomberg so far has spent $350 million, he has -- he has hired 1700 people who work in offices in 43 states. this is not for bloomberg the news agency. this is for bloomberg for president. tonight he is going to step outside his very expensive comfort zone and try to be a charismatic politician while at the same time his opponents and the moderators are going to ask him about embarrassing things he said. including this regarding farmers who dig holes and plant things. >> the society lasted 3,000 years. and we could teach processes. i could teach anybody, even people in this room so, no
4:11 am
offense intended, to be a farmer. it's a process see. dig a hole, put a seed in, put dirt on top put water and corn will grow. fund fundamentally different. it's built around with replacing people with technology. you have to have a different skill set. you have to have a lot more gray matter. >> so charlie daniels, the musical legend pleaded this out. hey, bloomberg, you know as much about farming as a hog knows about an airplane. how are you going to teach somebody else how to do it. better stay in new york city where corn comes in cans. [laughter] steve: burn. wow. we have heard some of the bloomberg people say that that quote is being taken out of context. so i would imagine that will be how he responds tonight regarding that nobody is going to ask him how do you feel about charlie daniels saying you know -- pete: there was a lot of
4:12 am
context in that clip we just played. i mentioned geno defabio lifelong trucker voted for president trump. >> i would like to see him go on a farm and work a farm one day. i would like to see him climb in a combine and plow a field. he said the same thing about factory workers. this guy is alienating everybody. like democrats, that's their game. they have completely written off the middle class, the working man from the farmers to the coal minors t miners to e factory workers. he told entrepreneurs guys like the guy who owns our company who built it from nothing. he told him you didn't build that hillary clinton called us deplorables. now bloomberg is calling us stupid. steve: keep in mind the dnc made this possible for michael bloomberg to be on the stage tonight by changing the rules and everybody has -- had to live by until he came along and self-financed his campaign. of course, the other candidates are furious with that, particularly bernie sanders who smells like the
4:13 am
dnc is out to derail him like they did last time. pete: yeah. you needed a certain number of donors. bloomberg has one. they said okay. no problem. steve: that's all you need when you are down. ainsley: what does this mean going forward? will they change the rules back for the next election? pete: supposed to change it this time. now they found another way to ---kick bernie out. steve: people dropped out so far because they didn't make the poll number or something like that. it's like hey, wait a minute, why are you doing that for him you? could have done that for me. pete: there you go. sounds fair to me. ainsley: jillian has more headlines for us. good morning, jillian. jillian: begin with this fox news alert now. nascar driver ryan newman is awake and talking following his terrifying wreck at the daytona 500. newman's car hit a wall, flipped and crashed into another car during the final lap. it landed on driver corey lajoie's car he joined us earlier and described the aftermath. >> it was like the smoke cleared for a split second

but, the attorney general is a strong, level-headed, calm, you know, individual that wants to plod through every day and makes a good as a decision as he can. steve: sure. then there is the hypocrisy that some have cited where there are a bunch of democrats members of the department of justice and whatnot, investigators, who are calling on the attorney general to resign over the roger stone situation. but the hypocrisy is the double standard. when eric holder got involved and asked -- was asked to get involved in politically sensitive cases, where was the outrage then, preted? >brett. >> you noticed there weren't letters signed by thousands of conservative, you know, former u.s. attorneys or deputy attorneys general calling for holder to resign. there is a double standard. and the aggravation really
4:23 am
have you now see congress jumping on that and look at the result. you have a president who is doing his job. he is pardoning people in meaningful analysis. why is he having to do that? because congress and the democrats are too concerned about the attorney general and this president than doing their job and passing legislation that can fix our criminal justice system. steve: ultimately, don't you think this is just phase 2 after the impeachment thing didn't work out so now the narrative is going to be, look, this president guy, he is breaking all the rules. and have you got these well-regarded people of law enforcement community saying he has got to go and we are going to hear that right up to election day. >> yeah, steve. i think you create the very fire you claim to be reporting on by, you know, putting into the media that there is controversy or putting into the media that there is a strain between the attorney general and the president. and you see a lot of that going on. and that's what they are
4:24 am
focused on. let's impeach him now for a tweet that he is going to send out and for the attorney general doing his job. steve: i think that's probably about right. i don't think the president is going to stop tweeting. but that's just the way it works. >> i don't think so. steve: all right. brett tolman joining us esident, he has been slamming the l.a. maher eric garcetti for protecting illegal migrants in his city. our next guest's son murdered by illegal immigrant in california. now she is running for congress and she has a message for the l.a. mayor next. ♪go your own way copd tries to say go this way i say i'll go my own way with anoro. ♪go your own way once-daily anoro contains two medicines called bronchodilators that work together to significantly improve lung function

for democrats to look the other way. it's another thing for a mayor to stand in front of the camera with their chief of police there saying here's how you avoid police and we're going to help you do just that. how do you overcome that sentiment? >> both ought to be arrested. number one, the chief of police is only agreeing with the mayor because he is afraid to lose his contract and be fired. and garcetti ought to be arrested. he is saying he is protecting the immigrant community. well, the immigrant community has no fears or concerns about trump's policy. what garcetti is refusing to say he is protecting illegal aliens, those that commit crimes i'm not saying every illegal alien commits crime but they commit a significant number of crimes. they take jobs from americans. they steal your identities. and this is not okay.

and when we imgrated to the united states, i was stateless because the government took our citizenship away. this is the only country i have citizenship of. and i took my oath of citizenship extremely seriously to defend and protect my country. and the mayor and the chief and everybody else who is in power should do the same and including those in congress. that's why i decided to run, to bring some integrity back to the house of congress. pete: if you have seen socialism, you know you don't want what it actually means. agnes gibboney, thank you for your time this morning. we appreciate it. we also asked mayor garcetti's office for a statement. no response as of yet. ainsley: it is 7:33 on the east coast. pete buttigieg calling out christians who support president trump. >> i himself and anything that i find in scripture. ainsley: the growing backlash over those

4:39 am
ballot here in nevada's caucus. he is certainly on the debate stage. there is no welcome party from the candidates to his arrival. look at this vicious elizabeth warren tweet. she says it's a shame mike bloomberg can buy his way into the debate. but at least now primary voters curious about how each candidate will take on donald trump can get a live demonstration of you who we each take on an ego maniac billionaire. let me show you who is on that stage. it's going to be bloomberg, buttigieg, sanders, warren, klobuchar and biden. already bloomberg's name came up in a town hall last night when candidates were asked whether or not they would take bloomberg money if they got the nomination. watch. >> if mr. bloomberg wins and i certainly hope he does not. i will support the democratic nominee. as of now, we have not taken -- we don't have a super pac. >> sure. i'm not going to reject that help because it came from a very wealthy person. >> now, nationally, look at the latest nbc, "wall street
4:40 am
journal" pool. poll. you see sanders is rising. followed bye bye den at 15%. bloomberg and warren tied for third at 14%. followed by buttigieg 13%. klobuchar 7%. and as you mentioned ainsley at the top, president trump is here in vegas. he spent the night at his trump hotel in the campaign took out a full-page ad, page 9 a today in the las vegas review journal where in it they say that the democrats will kill nevada jobs. the president holding a rally nearby in arizona tonight and then he will be in vegas for a rally later in the ainsley: i'm sure that wasn't cheap to buy that ad. that's huge. steve: all right. let's bring in lawrence jones. fox news contributor, fox nation hosts a well. he joins us right now from las vegas. lawrence, good morning to you. >> good morning, guys. steve: so tonight it's going to be michael bloomberg, former mayor is going to be a piñata because any of the
4:41 am
others want to survive they have got to beat him up. >> yeah. it's going to be a big night. i had the opportunity to go out and talk with voters at a bernie sanders rally as you know yesterday was the last day of early voting for the nevada caucuses. i wanted to ask them did they feel like bloomberg was trying to buy the election? take a look at what they had to say. >> how do you feel about the democratic party and mike bloomberg trying to buy this election? >> it's a sad reality. oubigmoney should not influence politics. >> i'm incensed and outraged and incredibly disappointed with the democratic party. >> how do you feel about bloomberg's comments. another week about him saying stuff about minorities. >> it's despicable and something that you expect from an oligarch like him. >> i think we all know bloomberg wants policies have not been recently -- >> say bernie doesn't win, could you ever support a guy like bloomberg. >> i would begrudgingly vote for him, yes. >> i would have a really hard time doing that.
4:42 am
>> as you can see, guys, a lot of people are troubled with what the party is doing. they changed the rules to benefit one guy. and many people are saying that it's unfair to the other candidates that are already out of the race. steve: and the problem for the democrats then as you know, lawrence, because you have been to those rallies, they love bernie so much. if he is not on the ticket and they feel that the dnc ripped him off, they are just not going to show up to vote for anybody in november. >> yeah. these are the hard core progressives. they don't want incremental change. interesting twist, guys, in an interview yesterday with the vanity fair the campaign manager for bernie sanders said that they believe that fox news is more fair to the bernie sanders campaign than liberal msnbc. pete: i saw that and if you are one of these campaigns spending a lot of time raising small dollar donations so can you reach the threshold to get into the debate and then they erase it there is a reason
4:43 am
for a lot of frustration. one of the camps that did just that was pete buttigieg. he has been on the stage. he will be on the stage tonight. he did a town hall in las vegas as did many other candidates on cnn. he was asked a question by erin burnett. the question reveals as much as the answer. we are going to play it and get your response, lawrence. watch. >> all right. >> do you think it is impossible to be a christian and support president trump? >> well, i'm not going to tell other christians how to be christians. but, i will say i cannot find any compatibility between the way this president conducts himself and anything that i find in scripture. pete: do you think it's impossible to be a christian and a trump supporter was her question? >> look, i'm not going to get into theology because we will be here all day. i'm a preacher's kid. i'm not going to go back and forth on it. the question set up says a lot about cnn. steve: exactly. >> i think pete needs to worry about the conservatives that are now going to be in that primary. because there are a lot of
4:44 am
black voters. a lot of brown voters that are very concerned that don't line up with his ideology. i think he needs to be more concerned about reaching people in his own primary instead of republicans that support the president to have christian values. ainsley: christians flawed. christians on both sides, democrats, republicans. the bible is there so they can keep us in check. it's a guideline for us to live our lives. it doesn't mean we follow every single thing in the bible. we try to. but we are failures. >> and i don't think the government paying for everything is quite christian doctrine. i also don't think killing kids is christian doctrine as well. but, again, like i said, i can go back and forth with mayor pete on that all day about the value system on the left. they become even more progressive. get in the way of those christian values. again, the democratic party used to value that evangelize vote. right now they shun those people. he needs to be worried about how he is going to get those voters. right now we are cece ago lot of christian voters out there supporting mayor pete.

>> 2020 hopeful bernie sanders vowing to end greed and corruption. >> the only way that change every takes place in this country is from the bottom on up, not the talk down. what this campaign is about, not just beating trump. it has taken on corruption of wall street. >> there he is talking about greed and corruption but our next guest is sanders has a little problem. in his new book profiles and corruption, peter schweitzer claims sanders has funneled campaign cash to his wife jane for years and peter joins us live. you say that jane sanders has
5:30 am
immediate company and is profiting from her husband's candidacy. >> this goes back to the 1980s when bernie was mayor of burlington, vermont. one of the first things is he put his then girlfriend, y on the payroll, the city council objected, bernie ignored them and that began this pattern of steering money, taxpayer money and campaign money to his family. his wife set up a media buying business registered to their home in vermont and started doing media buying for her husband's campaign. she had no background in advertising or media buying and the dirty little secret is when you do a media by the buyer is entitled to a commission of 10 to 15%. it can be quite lucrative. we know that at least 150,$000 was funneled to jane sanders this way.
5:31 am
we also found out in a couple cases allies of bernie sanders who ran for governor of vermont in 2000 and ran for lieutenant governor in 2004 were expecting bernie's endorsement. bernie didn't give it. bernie decided to endorse these candidates. he seems to be leveraging his position as well. >> i don't think most people knew that and i'm sure a lot of the bernie sanders crowd listened to him talk about ending greed and corruption don't realize that but being a media buyer, what she is doing is not against the law. >> now, it is not. part of the issue is it is hard to create laws to fix these problems. the conflict of interest laws in corporate america, if you did this as with a family member and
5:32 am
did not disclose it to shareholders in a public traded company would be in trouble with the securities and exchange commission but the problem is politicians get to write their own rules. they want to apply conflict of interest laws and requirements to corporations that they don't apply to themselves. >> at the same time there seems to be some hypocrisy because bernie is honest and every day talking about greed and corruption and people standing right there who really want him to be president don't realize what may be going on behind-the-scenes when it comes to every one of those media purchases. >> the hypocrisy or inconsistency goes deeper because bernie's worth several million dollars. he has a stock portfolio but when you look at his stock portfolio he is not investing in socially responsible investment funds, he's not buying solar company stock or buying into an
5:33 am
organic cattle farm. he is buying fortune 500 companies so he attacks wall street, attacks big pharma, big oil. he is invested in those companies, that is where he is putting his assets so it is a major problem for bernie, the gap between the image he portrays in the reality of how he actually conducts his own affairs. >> this is the campaign season and we are learning more about the candidates. are you the only person looking into their personal finances? because your book profiles in corruption is the only place i heard about this the bidens and all those other people, where is the curiosity? >> great question. there doesn't seem to be a lot. what this book does and my previous books have done is the oldest story in political journalism is follow the money. we need to know who joe biden's family is, how bernie is doing

5:40 am
federal government will do it. >> reporter: the president made those remarks during a meeting with organizers of the 2028 olympic and, heading to a fundraiser in beverly hills. it was not the first time he threatened to intervene in california. he has been spark with democratic leaders throughout his presidency on everything from immigration to environmental regulations, the president said he does want the city to prepare for the 2020 olympics, the first since the 2002 winter games in salt lake city. more stops in california heading to a rally in arizona. in colorado springs tomorrow night. a city that is full of his democratic rivals in the big debate in the caucuses on saturday. this is a pattern we are starting to see by the president
5:41 am
and his campaign going wherever his rivals are before the caucus primary. the president said yesterday this is a strategy that proved effective in iowa and new hampshire. in his words we have a big voice and might as well use it. >> let's bring in molly hemingway to talk about the president's trip to the west coast. molly will be there for four days, going into california slamming the leaders there for the homeless problem and their supported illegal immigrants. your thoughts? >> people are forgetting donald trump is running a campaign. he went to iowa and new hampshire and there were republican primaries and
5:42 am
caucuses in those states and it is to get them out for his 2020 election hope so need to start contacting them now and getting them excited. he's going at the same time democrats are but that is because there are republicans as well as democrats. >> if he squares off against bernie sanders who will be able to raise a lot of money or michael bloomberg who has a lot more money than donald trump he needs to raise money for his campaign and that is why he is doing a fundraiser with larry ellison who runs oracle and is doing a fundraiser out west as well. >> michael bloomberg and donald trump -- michael bloomberg really is one of the world's wealthiest people, already spent $400 million in advertising, a lot of money as he attends to purchase the democratic nomination. >> i love that that is fair. >> ironic for democrats many of which are running against wealth saying we want billionaires out. wealth taxes a big part of the debate tonight. >> the establishment seems to
5:43 am
like michael bloomberg, not the democratic voters but the establishment. >> let's talk about chris murphy from the state of connecticut. he met with a member of the iranian regime and the irony is this sounds a lot like what michelson was accused of, violation of the logan act. >> reporter: i found it interesting, i broke the story a couple days ago that he had a meeting with the iranian foreign minister and what is interesting is a few years ago when michael flynn and the incoming member of the trump administration had a conversation with his russian counterparts the treatment was illegal, mike flynn needed to have his life ruined and the department of justice, media figures said this was the logan act violation even though michelson was the incoming national security adviser but chris murphy having secret meetings in the hotel rooms of
5:44 am
uranium leaders, a sanctioned individual by the us government and only admitted it after my story broke. now it is a very good thing. a lot of hypocrisy on display. he says because he is a senator he is allowed to do this but it is reported people who weren't senators like john kerry were in this meeting which would mean john kerry violated it. >> maybe an alternative foreign policy. do you have the new york times? i am sure the story is in the new york times right now. is that right? >> not sure. now that chris murphy admitted he did take part in this meeting, they might have covered it. >> not sure it is on the front page. >> democrat senator from connecticut chris murphy says i am a rank-and-file us senator. i cannot conduct diplomacy on behalf of the whole of the
5:45 am
united states government and don't pretend to be in a position to do so but if trump isn't going to talk to iran then someone should. lack of dialogue leaves nations guessing about their enemies intentions and getting wrong can lead to catastrophic mistakes. >> he actually contradict himself in that brief statement. he says i'm a senator, doing anything but i'm trying to conduct foreign policy here. he had publicly at this meeting in munich slammed the us policy publicly. it is likely he did the same in private as well. a lot of people say having mixed messages from us figures can cause problems. >> if part of your approach is to not talk to the regime in light of the regime's conduct and a senator walks in and says that president guy, pay no attention to that. >> what was reported to him? >> he was talking about various issues, iranian supporting terror groups and what's not.
