tv Lou Dobbs Tonight FOX Business March 4, 2019 7:00pm-8:00pm EST
fox business network. have a good evening. ♪ lou: good evening everybody. the radical democrats ratcheting up their political persecution of president donald trump. and they mean to attack viciously and relentlessly. the radical democrats making it clear that nothing contained in the report that robert mueller will some day submit after the special counsel's almost two-year investigation will in any way interrupt or interfere with their efforts to destroy the trump presidency and his chances of reelection. few of the radical destructive democrats are more venomous more violently partisan than house
judiciary chair nadler who will allow nothing to stop him from subverting this president in every way imaginable. >> impeachment is a long way down the road. we don't have the facts yet, but we're going to initiate proper investigation. it's our job to protect the rule of law. that's our core function. and to do that, we are going to initiate investigations into abuses of power, into corruption of -- into corruption and obstruction of justice. we have to lay out for the american people and we can't depend on the mueller investigation for this. it is focused on specific crimes and we have to focus much more broadly. lou: tonight we have with us to take all of that up legendary republican strategist ed rollins, judicial watch president tom fenton, former federal prosecutor sydney powell and are republicans fighting back? no many of them are at best --
[inaudible] -- including the senator from kentucky announcing his opposition to the president's national emergency declaration, preposterously ignoring president trump's stated and unequivocal constitutional responsibility to uphold national security and to protect all americans. senator paul joins luminaries of the ranks, susan collins, lisa murkowski, tom tillis, lamar alexander, none of which will ever be rightly associated with high principle or courage. the president today reminded all why he declared a national emergency. >> we spend billions and billions of dollars but we don't control our own border. thousands of our citizens are killed by lethal narcotics. 88,000 people just with certain types of drugs, most of which come through the southern border. in the last two years, i saw officers made 266,000 arrests of
aliens with criminal records, including those charged or convicted of approximately 100,000 assaults. and these are new numbers, hard to believe. 30,000 sex crimes and 4,000 murders. lou: we pick up the border crisis, the surge and deadly gangs and drugs across our southern border, the cowardly rationalizations o, the indifference of the radical democrats, to what is unquestionably our national emergency. republican congressman andy biggs, congressman sean duffy, former u.s. border chief mark morgan join the show tonight. and the search for dozens of people missing underway tonight in alabama after deadly tornadoes ripped through the state. the tornadoes took the lives of at least 23 people, some of them children. we will have the latest on the aftermath of the deadly storms here tonight. our top story, the radical
democrats committing to carrying out the nastiest, dirtiest, political search and destroy mission in american history. the radical democrats declaring to hell with their responsibilities as the loyal opposition, to hell with the constitution and the american way of life. they've already dismissed the special counsel investigation and report that they were once so certain would take down president trump. to hell with that as well. here's house judiciary committee chair jerry nadler, throwing out the mueller investigation's failure to find collusion, now focusing single mindly on subversion of president trump. -- single mindedly subversion of president trump >> if robert mueller comes back definitively we find no collusion by president trump. is that a conclusion you will accept? >> we want to see the evidence behind that and see the validity of that, and we could agree or disagree. but this investigation goes far beyond collusion.
>> do you think the president obstructed justice? >> yes, i do. >> if that's the case, then is the decision not to pursue impeachment right now simply political if you believe he obstructed justice? >> no, we have to -- we have to do the investigations and get all this. we do not now have the evidence all sorted out and everything to do an impeachment. lou: they don't have the facts. they don't have the evidence. they never will. nadler's committee today serving document requests on an incredible 81 agencies, entities and individuals as they demonstrate the radical democrats will stop at absolutely nothing to destroy careers and lives. the question tonight, and the question that will persist through it all, will the radical democrats venomous mission be self-destructive and be their ruination? we take that up tonight as we examine what is nothing less
than a bald attempt to overthrow the trump presidency with their document requests, the coordinated calls for six different house committees to investigate without end. joining me tom fenton, the president of judicial watch, former federal prosecutor and author sydney powell. thank you both for being with us, and sydney, let's begin with you. what now should the president and all of his supporters and most importantly those who are on the president's legal team be considering right now to defend against what is an absolute, an absolute dagger at the heart of the trump administration? >> well, you are right, lou, it is an unprecedented assault on this president and the democrats should be very leery of what they've started here. it is going to backfire on them in more ways than one, and things have a way of going
around that come around or come around that go around. lou: i understand that. what should the president and his administration be doing right now? because the democrats have put it right in their faces and said what they are going to do and how they're going to go about it. >> they need to be looking at motions to quash all the subpoenas and fighting them every way they possibly can. and anyone who testified before congress previously or before mueller should not be testifying in front of them again. lou: tom fenton, your thoughts? >> yeah, the easiest answer is just say no. these are redundant requests. the documents are around elsewhere that congress can get, if they desperately need them. but this is just a remarkable development in terms of abuse of power. recall, this is all part of the piece. you had obama use the irs to target his opposition in 2012. then they used doj, fbi, cia, etc. to target president trump or then candidate trump.
they continued targeting through and the abuse through the mueller operation and now the abuse is being continued. the coup is being continued through this abusive use of congressional power to harass the president and all of his people. a lot of these people can't afford lawyers even to say yes will cost them tens of thousands of dollars. to say no could break them. lou: break them how? >> financially. lou: the republican party should be making certain -- making certain that there will be -- this is nothing but a political persecution. it is not even an investigation. this is purely and straightforwardly an assault. why isn't the republican party right now raising money, making certain that every single person involved is not financially -- inconvenient steven? >> that will be another
accusation. lou: what are they to do? are they to sit there and watch them go broke? >> that's what's happened previously, lou. lou: shame on the republican party. shame on the so called donor class. >> they could certainly start a legal defense fund on behalf of everybody that's involved in it. >> that's right. >> you know, nadler admitted he had nothing to go on. i mean to say you have no facts of evidence of a crime warranting impeachment, and then to launch an investigation anyway is the exact reverse order our system is supposed to work. it's a remarkable abuse of power -- lou: are you saying that the witch hunt had it in reverse order? i mean it's been a search for a crime? they are following the lead of robert mueller and the radical dimm corruption of the fbi and the department of justice? >> it is rare you get an admission that they are doing it. [laughter] >> and remember, mueller was authorized to investigate any crime he came across in the
process of investigating whatever the heck it was he was authorized to investigate to begin which included obstruction of justice and this whole collusion mess which they made up. so there wasn't anything he couldn't have prosecuted if he found evidence of it. so there is no evidence of anything -- lou: jerry nadler has stipulated that. let's listen if you would please and share this with the audience. nadler on the investigation, if you would listen to this, he's perfectly willing to set aside -- it's a full screen that we want to put up, as he described how he's going to toss aside any concern about the witch hunt, the special counsel investigation which has wasted 25 million dollars and almost two years of america's time. congress must provide a check on abuses of power, equally we must protect and respect the work of special counsel mueller, but we cannot rely on others to do the
investigative work for us. have you ever seen a more -- what's your thought about that, tom? >> well, it shows you that mueller's come up dry, and it is not just two years. it is three years because the doj and the fbi began harassment -- lou: i was talking about the special counsel investigation. >> right but the investigation generally has been going on for at least three years. they've been unable to do anything, so now -- one of the worst aspects of what we learned this week is the confirmation that congress or the house democrats are going to seek to abuse the law to get the president's private tax returns. so not only will they be abusing these individual citizens, using the power of congress, they're going to try to bring in the irs -- lou: let me ask you both. sidney you first, what are the republicans in congress doing? what is the senate doing? why isn't there a response from the republican party and their representatives, whether it be in the senate or the house?
>> lou, we need to vote out absolutely every rino -- lou: i don't want to talk about 2020. i really don't. i want to talk about what these lazy passive son of a guns can do to respond to what is a clear declaration of war on the part of the radical dems against the president and the american republic. >> well, the senate, where we have control could start investigations of their own of the culprits in congress that are responsible for this. you know, they are not doing anything. lou: tom? >> you know, it was announced today that nadler coordinated with the mueller operation in the southern district of new york which is run by deep staters on this investigation. the collusion continues. senator graham has to take ownership of this and proceed to investigate the justice department and fbi corruption.
lou: does he have the stomach and the spine for it? >> well, you know, the american people need to give it to him, and that means your viewers need to let their senators know what they think about the corruption going on at the doj and the fbi and the assault on our republican form of government by the justice department and the fbi now with the conniving of the democrats in the house. lou: tom fenton, sidney powell, thank you both for being with us. appreciate it. >> thank you. lou: still ahead, president trump using his speech this weekend at cpac to draw a stark contrast between his administration and what the radical left is all about. >> we will always defend america's borders. >> we believe in the american dream, not in the socialist nightmare. democrats have totally abandoned the american mainstream. they're embracing open borders, socialism and extreme late-term abortion. but perhaps nothing is more
extreme than the democrats plan to completely take over american energy. lou: we will have much more on that throughout the broadcast. ed rollins is next. mitch mcconnell fails to get the rinos in his chamber to support the president's national emergency. former border patrol chief mark morgan joins us next as we take that and much more up. stay with us. great news, liberty mutual customizes- uh uh - i deliver the news around here. ♪ sources say liberty mutual customizes your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need. over to you, logo. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ smile dad. i take medication for high blood pressure and cholesterol. but they might not be enough to protect my heart. adding bayer aspirin can further reduce the risk of another heart attack. because my second chance matters.

lou: senator rand paul who is usually at best erratic breaking with president trump saying he will vote to block the president's national emergency declaration, which is meant to help build the wall to secure our southern border, to ensure americans safety and of course our national security. he joins three other rinos as i said earlier on the rino luminaries, in the senate who oppose the national emergency, leading to this conclusion today, from senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. listen to this. >> i think what is clear in the senate is that there will be enough votes to pass the
resolution of disapproval, which will then be vetoed by the president, and then in all likelihood the veto will be upheld in the house. lou: you can tell that he just loves the smell of -- [inaudible]. joining me now is mark morgan, former u.s. border patrol chief under president obama, served 20 years in the fbi and the united states marine corps. we want to add that as well. good to see you, mark. >> good to see you. lou: i'm watching this -- i was watching the president's speech at cpac. he talked extensively about the border, the crisis as he has and seems to be the only voice in america at times i swear to god who has the guts to actually talk about drug cartels. you notice no one even whispers cartel. only this president has that courage. he's the only president if you will check it out who has ever talked about it. and yet central americans are pouring across the border. mexican citizens are pouring
across the border. and as the president himself pointed out, these are not road school -- road scholars and they are not the most educated amongst -- or skilled amongst the people of central america or mexico. and no one wants to in the democratic party acknowledge that there is a crisis here. i mean, it is astonishing. what can be done? this president has talked to the border patrol. he has put their -- put them before the american people. everyone who watches local news on any given day watches terrible, terrible reports about the deaths of young americans. what will it take? >> well, lou, let's make sure we frame this narrative correct. it's not just the democrats. rand paul showed us that today. he is saying that he is going to vote against the president. by doing so, this is not about the president circumventing the appropriation authority of congress. that's not what this is. this is about the president --
lou: as rand paul claimed it was? >> exactly. this is about the president doing what congress failed to do, and by him voting against the president's declaration, he's actually saying to the experts and to the president that this isn't a crisis. he's joining the democrats by voting no -- lou: at what point do the people of kentucky say to the hell with this kind of representation? they have the senate majority leader who he might as well be basking by the pool in the koch brothers backyard for crying out loud you know and doing all his bankings a closelys a he can with goldman -- as closely as he with goldman sachs it is pitiful. >> it is. 70,000 illegal aliens were apprehended by the united states border patrol last month. 70,000. if it keeps going, we will be in excess of 700,000. those are just what we apprehend. throw in a couple hundred
thousand that we don't. we will be looking at over a million individuals that we apprehended this year. lou: i can remember what the ratio used to be including when you were running the joint, it was 3 to 1. for every apprehension, the estimate was 3 got through. and by that metric, we're looking at as the president calls it an invasion. >> absolutely. lou: and at this point, we've got people talking -- the president is talking about h 1-b visas. no one is admitting, acknowledging that the top -- the top outsources in this country are from india? they are bringing in foreigners at 25 to 30 percent lower wages under the h-1b program. you know, the phonies from silicon valley, microsoft are spilling their bowl and, you know, it's just -- there's a lie at every turn directed at this
president, his policies. h-1b is a joke. and it is a fraud, is it not? >> absolutely. and again, lou, you have said it so many times. how many more facts, how many more historical data do we have -- we can't have a legitimate discussion because you have people that just dismiss facts, dismiss the drugs coming across, dismiss the alien smuggling, sexual exploitation, the bad criminals coming in, and we could go on and on and on. and they just dismiss the reality and the facts that this is a crisis. it's unbelievable. lou: and, you know, i have to tell you, there are times when you look at the president now talking about building a wall. we're down to 215 miles of wall. i don't know where it is. i haven't seen pictures of it. i've seen pictures of the eight prototypes being destroyed, but suddenly we've got a negotiation on our hands, and it looks to me like that the koch brothers and
wall street have got a few people by the nape of their necks who advise in the white house or advise at least those in the white house, and it's very troubling to watch this systemic erosion on the part of the powerful policies of this president and to watch the reality is that the trump administration is getting gamed on this right now, and i frankly am sick of it. your thoughts? you get the last word. >> well, lou, i completely agree. here's the end result. and americans are going to die because of political ideology is being put in front of the protection and safety of this country. americans are dying. and they are going to continue to die because of political ideology. that's disgusting. lou: yeah. you get the last word, mark. i would like you to come back, if you've got time this week. there's a lot we need to talk about, and i think this audience
would love to hear your thoughts on the corruption, the political corruption of the fbi and the justice department where you served for so many years, at a senior level. >> love to, lou. lou: we will take you up on it mark. thank you very much for being with us here tonight, mark morgan. up next, president trump's approval ratings on the rise. especially within the republican party. ed rollins joins us here next. you never want to miss a word he says. sometimes i do. my age, a little hearing problem, but we'll get through it. before we go, a look at the u.s. national debt, 22 trillion dollars and climbing. we're back right after this. i can't believe it. that there's a lobster in our hot tub? lobster: oh, you guys. there's a jet! oh...i needed this. no, i can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on our car insurance with geico. we could have been doing this a long time ago. so, you guys staying at the hotel?

there and there are so many, aren't there, who said he would pay a terrible terrible political price, declaring an emergency because of the massive overdose deaths in this country from the drugs being pushed across the southern border. i mean, it goes on and on why the president couldn't do anything right, and meanwhile, a new poll shows his approval ratings are rising and rising significantly. nbc news, "wall street journal" finding 46% of americans now approve of his job performance, up 3% from january. imagine that. and the latest gallup poll finds president trump's approval among republicans at 89%. i don't even remember -- you've got to go back to at least ronald reagan to find a republican president with that kind of rating. no, george h. w. bush right after the persian war -- >> i can tell you in march of 83, reagan asked me to run his campaign, he was at 39% approval rating, went on to win 59% of the vote.
i think trump is perfectly positioned in this field that's running against him and the idiots that are trying to run the house of representatives -- lou: what do you think of jerry nadler? >> jerry nadler is a screaming liberal who basically eight ten weeks ago talked about putting his impeachment team together. he's now saying we just want to find the facts. lou: these are creepy guys, aren't they? >> absolutely. lou: adam schiff, nadler. >> the truth of the matter is, the more the country gets to see them, the better it will be for donald trump. if they think they can take -- they have to start working saturdays and sundays and can't have their 35 days -- every other month off. lou: you are going to break washington with that kind of thinking. >> if you have 81 already subpoenaed, you are going to have 200 before you're finished. there's not enough time. every one of them wants to talk and it will basically do them in. lou: very quickly, do we have the hilary clinton rant?

lou: she ran into a buzz saw called donald j. trump. she won't credit him. why the left wing national media -- because they are all left wing democrats. they want to destroy him and the country. what the hell. >> put her up again. let her come at us again. she will get it even worse next time, without even the russians. lou: that's a grand idea. we should hope perhaps a moment of generosity, would overcome her nastiness and as a way of saying i'm sorry to bernie sanders for destroying his candidacy, stealing it from him, point of fact, which had the same effect, make him the vice president or vice versa, depending on as they battle it out because we know it will be an honest and fair fight on the democratic side, maybe he could make her vice president. what do you think? >> i think it would be perfect, whatever, just put her on the ticket one more time and let her -- the reality is the democrats today, they can't deal
with trump. they can't deal with what's happening in this country. they basically are going to lose the battle long-term. lou: rand paul is having a rough day, in my opinion. >> should have a rough day. lou: but he did say something i think worthy of noting, if we could look at that full screen on the koch brothers. you know how we regard them here. rand paul saying this, what is underappreciated is their passion referring to the koch brothers for freedom, their commitment to ideas, unlike many crony capitalists who troll the halls of congress looking for favors, the koches have consistently lobbied against special interest politics. can you believe he had the temerity to spew that abject nonsense? >> on the same day that he announced that he's not going to vote for the president's program. there will be a couple more now that they have the four votes, there will be another three, four, maybe five republicans who won't have the guts to vote for the wall.
the wall is so critical -- lou: the republicans won't have the guts to do anything about it. >> he said i hope i still get to play golf with the president. tell him where he can put the golf. i'm not the president. lou: on the tee. ed rollins, as always, good to see you. thank you. lou: up next, alabama recovering from the deadliest tornado in nearly six years. 23 lives lost. many are missing. also tonight, more on the rino's feeble attempt to dismantle the president's national emergency declaration. congressman andy biggs with us right after this quick break. stay with us. meone. this is jamie. you're going to be seeing a lot more of him now. -i'm not calling him "dad." -oh, n-no. -look, [sighs] i get it. some new guy comes in helping your mom bundle and save with progressive, but hey, we're all in this together.

joining us tonight co chair of the security caucus, congressman biggs also serving in the house judiciary committee, science based technology committee, members of the house freedom caucus. great to have you with us. the president again having to explain to the rinos and to the radical dimms why this is a national emergency as a result of what is a wide-open southern border. >> yeah, i find it intriguing that it's always people who haven't been to the border or democrats that don't view this as an emergency. and i hear the arguments on article i power, but you know what? we delegated this already, funding and policies already in the statutes that we've delegated. second thing is, the statute itself is broad definition of an emergency, and you and i both know, this is an emergency situation. lou: no question. there's no question. the president has the authority under the 76 act as well as the constitution of the united states.
the only man in our government, the only person in our government responsible for national security. >> that's exactly right. and you look at the invasion. there's sex trafficking, drug trafficking. we just had just recently, enough fentanyl that would kill 53 million people was seized. this is going on on a regular basis. we don't have fences and walls in so many places. it is an emergency. lou: let me ask you about that committee you are on, big investigation, big investigation, nadler, are you learning something about how a chairman should work from nadler rather than goodlot? >> you are seeing that mr. nadler has taken a shotgun approach. i'm particularly excited to see julian assange come in, i was looking at the list today, which of course he's not going to. that's what this, this is theater trying to lay the groundwork to basically if you can't impeach the president, try to embarrass him, his family and
punish anybody who supports this president -- lou: has it occurred to nadler that he just might be making a complete and total -- of himself and the american people will end up just laughing at him and his cronies and the radical dimms? >> well, i'm not sure they are that sensitive to what the american people are seeing and what they want to see. they don't want to see this persistent, this kind of conflict. it adds gas to the fire of division that's going on. it is ridiculous as well because think of this, lou, they kept saying well, we don't want to investigate because of the mueller investigation going on; right? so the mueller -- lou: now they have dismissed it. >> yeah, they have dismissed it. that's because -- that's the peg they were hanging their hat on for impeachment. now they don't have that. lou: i have got to ask -- i'm sorry, congressman, i have to ask you as we're out of time,
your thoughts about rand paul and the rino luminaries over in the senate, but rand paul today extolling the virtues of the koch brothers and setting them apart from the other members of the donor class because they are so pure and -- it's ridiculous what he said. your thoughts? >> you know, rand marches to a different drummer, that's for sure. i will just leave it there, lou. he's marching to his own song. lou: he is doing that. i think you might say that nicely. i would say that he's marching to the beat of whatever the koch brothers, wall street and others are drumming. he's not marching to his own beat, i assure you, congressman. andy biggs, thank you very much, appreciate it. >> thanks, lou. lou: up next, all signs point to a face-to-face meeting between the president and xi jinping at the end of this month. what does it mean?

s&p lost 11. nasdaq down 18. volume on the big board strong trading to begin the week, 3.9 billion shares. crude oil up almost 1 1/2% to $57 a barrel. gold, silver down nearly a percent, a reminder to listen to my reports three times a day, coast to coast on the salem radio network. joining us tonight congressman sean duffy of wisconsin, a member of the house financial services committee. you know, you're looking a little like a hedge fund manager there. you've got the title going. good to see you. [laughter] >> good to see you too, back in wisconsin. lou: yeah, absuitly. -- absolutely. one of the many beautiful places in this great country. let me ask you first, the president today talking to states attorneys general some of whom are making his life miserable or trying to, the president having to explain the national emergency declaration to the radical dimms again and
the rinos, when is there going to be a breakthrough on building this wall and, and securing this boarder? >> -- border? >> first off, as you put out in your show tonight, they might get the votes in the senate, pass the house, the president will veto it, won't override the veto and the courts will decide. right lou? the president will use every tool in his tool box to build the wall and secure the border. he made the promise. he's just enforcing the law. it's fascinating. this is the law that we determined as americans who comes in -- lou: like he says. >> we can't let people just flow in. he kee he's keeping a promise but also enforcing law. lou: it's a clear dichotomy between republicans and democrats or at least most republicans and that is therefore a law and order and national security and the dimms seem to be thrilled with the idea of overdose deaths in this
country, continuing the rise, sex trafficking across the border, it's repugnant. let's turn to trade. reports today coming -- by the way, i have been trying to source a number of these reports and most of the reports are coming from the chinese, not the united states government, about what great progress is being made. i notice the chinese market is moving a little in the favorable higher direction. for the chinese that doesn't solve their economic problems. i have never seen an example previously in this country in which the national media is responding as perhaps even more swiftly to the information given them by a foreign government rather than the u.s. government. >> we're shocked by that, lou? they will take whatever news they can and try to make president trump look bad. you know, looking at this trade deal, i just -- i look at china. they are growing their military, trying to grow their economy. they want to be the single global superpower. that's their mission.
we wouldn't even be addressing if it wasn't for donald trump. i have a philosophy don't trust and verify. lou: his brain has taken him and the country in the right direction. we're on the right side of history for a change. i agree with you, he's got great instinc instincts. to me what is deeply troubling is the fact that the national left wing media is making some choices about which government they're listening to, wall street we know is operating as unregistered foreign agents. it's something to behold. your sense about what's going to happen? >> so you'd think, lou, that the national media and the democrat party are americans first and partisan second, but that's not the case. lou: uh-huh. >> again, you mentioned the democrats will have the michael cohen hearing the day donald trump is trying to cut a peace
deal with north korea. lou: yep. >> the media has run for two years on a bogus story on donald trump. they are not looking for america. they are looking to take president trump out. my hope is as we deal with china he doesn't listen to folks inside that want to cut a deal at any cost. we have to cut a good deal. i hope he listens to people like bob lighthizer and peter navarro guys who want him to fight for the best deal possible. if you can't get one, no deal is better than a bad deal, lou. when he dealt with the wall, i think he had again kind of never trumpers in the white house that gave him bad advice on how he fought the wall at the end of the year. and when he looked at where the republicans were in the house, he said, okay, no, i was right on this, actually let's go fight it. he didn't follow his instincts on the wall. he listened to bad advice. i hope he doesn't do that here. i think he is going to cut a
great deal for america. i have eight kids. what he does today is so important for their future, our economy, their security. it is all what he does in the next couple of months on cutting a great deal or no deal with china. lou: yeah, this president has made it clear that he is in charge and that should be a great comfort to all of us in this country and all that he's accomplished. but when i listen to the h-1b discussions, when i hear this business about raising illegal immigration without talking about corporate and employer responsibility and verifying along with merit-based immigration, it -- the ambiguity let me put it this way is -- well well annoying. that's ali say, annoying -- that's what i will say, annoying. >> i agree with you. lou: it is great to see you. all the best to you and your
beautiful wife and your kids. >> thank you. lou: congressman sean duffy, great american. we're back right after this. stay with us. some only call when they have something to sell. fisher calls regularly so you stay informed. and while some advisors are happy to earn commissions whether you do well or not. fisher investments fees are structured so we do better when you do better. maybe that's why most of our clients come from other money managers. .. all that prep? no thanks. that drink tastes horrible! but...there's no prep with cologuard... i can't take the time off work.
