american people and we need to keep our promises. you give us this chance, this responsibility, this opportunity, whether with a republican president, with a republican senate and republican house and we will replace and repeal. the president was clear i clearc we made a many proper is, now is our time to keep the promise.rom the changes will give larger benefits to older americans. the house of representative expected to vote on the healthcare plan on thursday. by the way, the congressionalgr pledge office which puts out the score. we're supposed to hear in 2424 hours what the revised changes will be. president trump actually went to capital hill to do what i guess people say he's known for. >> making the deal. some say he threatened lawmakers and said if you don't do this do which is what we promised themie american people you might not be here coming the mid-term americans. > that's
president p obama didn't do enoh of. >> neil gorsuch, senatorsat grilled him for hours. in fact is he still beingll grilled right now, kimberly? i'm talking to our producer. >> yes, he is still being grilled right now democratsrats determined to press him on everything from abortion to guns, to his independent from president trump. judge gorsuch said he's not concerned with past supremeth p court decisions or future political implications. he said, that's right, his job as a judge means keeping an open mind on the case at hand. h everybody wants a fair judge to come to their case with an open mind and decide it on the facts and the law. one of the facts -- one of thee features of law that you have to decide it on is on the basis of precedent as you point out. and for a judge, precedent is a very important thing. let's judging to skype right now and chris wilson, a little perspective.
campaign in 206. >> i did. > a lot of talk about the a supreme court and we can goack to a year ago when ted cruz was one of the first candidates who said we should wait until a new administration comes in to choose a replacement. what's your take away on judge gorsuch so far. hatgo he's donear w isis ' made the point that he'll be a fare and prudent jurist. he's maid issue after issue it's not about the issue, it's about constitution. the democrats are trying to make it the big corporation againstpa the little girl i think theyk have done a solid job of pointing out, this is not one person against another, it's about up holding the law. so far democrats have got to take a step back. we are not winning. it's not getting where we need it to be. but i can promise you you you're going to see senator lahey whohy is known forgetting more aggressive as the rounds
step up and maybe whereby den had under president bush.h. we're definitely in for several day, if not weeks of aggressive interrogation on constitution. hey, chris, the democrats werers going to be hard on him because he's the republican president's nominee for this. let me ask you, do they have a right to be hard on him in a lieutenant of them say, look, when president obama nominated merritt garland last year, ther, gop just completely shut thist down and did nothing. we've heard talk of democrats doing a filibuster to try to draw this out. >> do they have a right, of course they do as elected representatives of the constituencies. i thinkco the challenge the democrats have right now, judge gorsuch was able to make his way through to the court initially on a voice vote. nobody objected at all. not barack obama, not joe biden, not hillary clinton.t hi be
difficult to take a step back and say he was meritorious of a voice vote just a few years ago and now today he no longer fits the qualifications. qu they are f they're going to make it has of about garland, it had been ate decades since you had a supreme court appointment even considered in the last year of a presidency. to decide, what are you debating on, gorsuch's qualifications, are you debating merritt guard land's qualifications.ns. that's the rock in a hard place. anthony kennedy kind of found himself in that position where you were very close to an election.ecti that's over and done with. i think the democrats have to get to the point here, this is the nominee. h this is who you have to votee on. it is and it's the first year. that's the challenge. if this was the last year or the eighth year of the trump
be a little bit easier to maintain. but because of the rule changes that the democrats pushed through, when it downs to it, the republicans don't need the t democrat's support on this. i think they would not like toke do that. there are ten democrats that are in states that trump won that are up for reelection in 2018 and everyone of those have to be a bit concerned about two things, one, their primary and upsetting their base and then two, the general election. so really it's a difficult situation for democrats findingg themselves in and how they handle h this nomination both in committee and on the floor. > we should let our audience you guys were just looking at l live images inside the confirmation here. neil gorsuch still on the whoe h the seat being grilled. in the meantime if you're watching us tonight starting at 5:00 you saw mayor governor larry hogan blasting montgomeryt county offerings.er the governor deunder maaing the
information about what led up tp the alleged rape at rockville high. two teenagers who came to the us a couple months ago. one of the young men was enrolled in the high school. tom fitzgerald is live with more on the governor's very angry response to awful this. fits. >>reporter: jim and shawn, there's no way around it, the core of this story is tragic and sad. a 14 year old girl raped in a high school bathroom, all around, all sides can agree that just can never happen.ve but you what we're seeing herere not only in annapolis and overd in rockville is a seriousious disconnect at some of the top levels of government about what is exactly going on at the montgomery county public schools highest echelon.lon. we began the 5:00 news tonight with a news conference, a news conference in which thee superintendent of schools from montgomery county doctor jack smith said that he wanted to
avoid politics and any discussion, the particularscula surrounding this case. in a lot of ways, it is amazing to hear especially when youhe consider a lot of concerns thatn the parents in that schooll district have been expressing over the last three days to fox5. along with those parents you can put the governor of maryland in that group because larry hogan said he was looking at fox5 looking at a lot of the questions last night and found himself agreeing and agreeing with the questions coming in from parents because governornor hogan himself said he has not been getting answers from a montgomeryns county public schos and in fact neither has thee maryland state board of education. governor hogan in a remarkablekl news conference today laid in to montgomery county public schools and what he said was their efforts to just not share any information about the details os this case. listen to how the governor
this today. we've asked for every single detail that they have and all of the information they have. the state board of education haa asked for it and i think the response they got from the school system was we're note going to of proper you anything. we'll have a press conference later at 4:00 all and you'll be able to read it in the immediate why. governor hogan went onto say he is not done with this. he is going to start applying pressure, he says, to the montgomery county school board to get thoseount answers that hs been asking for and also he said that he has actually been working very closely he says with the montgomery county executive ike leggette who the governor says shares a lot oft the questions on this case. he also had kind words for the f montgomery county policeor who e says have been working with the maryland state police. but make no mistake about it, jim and shawn, the governor blasted mogo
schools today and their leadership for what he says is just an out right ignoring of questions coming from this statehouse with exactly whatactl went on leading up to the attack and the circumstancesmsta surrounding it. no doubt we're going to stay on top of this tonight.ight there is a big pta meeting at rock shill high school and we'll be there. developing ore night i don'tig know ihtf you you guys heard abt this security change involvinge some flights into the us. the dump administration says passengers coming in from ate countries will no longer be able to have laptops, most electronics. the government isn't say exactly why the ban is being imposed ord if it's in response to a threat but fox5's ronica cleary has that story tonight.that >>reporter: s it's interestingi new type of ban, p you will, this time on electronic devices. as you said these are biggerr electronic devices that they're
talk, about computers tablets, cellphones are still okay. these devices that are being band they can be stowed in checked baggage, if you will, just not on that flight i did read one report that said the white house said that paris will smuggle devisive devices in various places i guess give us a purpose of this ban, if you will. interestingly enough the countries where these airports that have the ban none of them are listed on either of the executive orders that presidentt trump has put out on immigration. some of the countries includede jordan, egypt, turkey, saudi arabia. there was a lot of talk aboutt saudi arabia not being on the executive orders. interestingly enough those countries have come up on this ban, if you will. we always like to get the pulse of the people at 5@6:30.0. we took to the streets to get you some understand as on how
take a listen. >> i take it's a great idea. anything that will make us safes is wonderful if. i really like president trump a lot.lot. i'm really concerned about it. we have intelligence that tellsl us something like this comings into the country might haveght something that would harm us on the plains or planes. i'm in favor of protecting usctn and i'm in favor of protachypneaing our rights.s. what other idiotic thing can they come up with now? it's based on certain countries toie other countries. another chapter of idiotic layec upon layer pitting against people that means nothing. are they trying to load theirthi war chest?t? >> you got some very differentrt responses to this and you know interestingly enough some people said they were sitting there talking about this before wefore came up to them.em other people hadn't heardt anything about it. we were the first to tell them

a very interesting place to do this, not because they went forw president trump they voted out a republican incumbent governor ever it's still a state where you have am people on different sides of the spectrum. you're right, i mean when youean look at the state by state -- i mean the county by county breakb down in north carolina you look at counties like wake and durham, which are obviously blue. andly then the western countiess went red. congressman mark meadows is one of the leaders against the trump healthcare plan in the house now. even with the changes that have been offered he is not on board. i'll be very curious to hear what the people we meet with tomorrow night think about that and see if they think this is an improvement over obamacare or no. we will be watching and we hope our viewers will be watching as

close to the west wing, but none of the less it's one of the gray areas, that this is a neww frontier approaching the white i house. i think some of the experts they tried to look and make sure there were no issues.sues > the news had a lot of people buzzing on facebook. his fellow republicans have to h know thiavs is a problem cryptic communications. jen a as aco fellow daughter wh, woulds with her father ier completely understand this. she also brings a softer and more centered side oh people won't be so upset. this is crazy how could she access to that and she's not a government employee.e. they're allowing him to make a mockery of our system. ivanka said she's always workedd closely with her father and this is her opportunity to keep ongoing what she has been. which is understood, but a realize empire is different than government security. colin kaepernick can't get a job.job. kaepernick took a
