tv Americas Newsroom With Bill Hemmer and Martha Mac Callum FOX News August 19, 2015 6:00am-8:01am PDT
>> good morning "fox & friends." >> toby mac, check him out on itunes everybody. thanks for being with "fox & friend friends". bill: a fox news alert. hillary clinton facing tough questions in a tough news conference, but standing firm in an email scandal that rocked her campaign and whos no signs of dying down anytime soon. martha: good morning. our own ed henry confronted hillary clinton about the private server and classified information that has been found in 300 email messages. that exchange got heated. watch for yourself.
>> isn't leadership about taking responsibility? >> i take span the. i just told jeff. that does not change the facts and no matter what anybody try to say, the facts are suborn. >> the f.b.i. believes you tried to wipe the entire server. wipe the whole thing. >> i have no idea, that's why we turned it over. >> did you wipe the server? >> wipe it with a cloth? i don't know how it works physically at all. i know you want to make a pointi have said.
martha: in a moment of frustration she turned and threw her hand up in the air and said nobody is talking to me about this except you guys. what are the legal issues being specifically raised here? >> reporter: very serious issues whether classified information was passed around. that is what the f.b.i. is looking to, the handling of that information, the security of that email server. you heard hillary clinton saying again and again, facts are stubborn thing and this was very routine and people are blowing this up into something. the fact of the matter is this
was not routine. there was no previous secretary of state who had their own email server. when you k about the legal ramifications. as nbc reported and fox confirmed, the f.b.i. believes someone tried to wipe that server and they believe they can restore some of that data. what else was on there that could have been erased in emails about benghazi other clinton foundation? we don't know what the f.b.i. is going to find. martha: we have seen cases where the handling and taking of classified information and sending that it to someone else opens up legal questions she'll have to answer for.
also, in the back and forth in your discussion she said i was the official in charge when you asked about whether she wiped the server clean. she said we went through all the emails. there are a couple of names close to her who worked at the state department whose names have come up who may have been some of the people who passed around this information. >> reporter: david kendall her personal attorney we believe would have been involved in this. trey gowdy the chairman of the benghazi committee has hillary clinton coming up a few days after the first democratic debate. it shows you this will stay alive. i just spoke with donald trump. he told me he doesn't believe after seeing that exchange that hillary clinton is being direct. he said he's wondering whether
democratic prosecutors in the obama administration are going to press this. he told me, if i'm elected president i'm going to make sure she is treated fairly and thoroughly investigated after republicans took the white house. but it shows you how the republican candidate are going to be jumping on this exchange and jumping on hillary clinton said there is no classified information in that server. that obviously appears to not be true. martha: it deals with how the obama administration deals with this case as opposed to that case. thank you very much. bill: i'll bring you to byron york. you just heard the back and forth there. take it piece by piece.
what did you hear in the q & a? >> the first thing mrs. clinton did was said she was the one who decided which email to turn over and not turn over. but when the question came about wiping the server clean she acted as if she knew nothing about it. she didn't know how that works and who knows. but her lawyer david kendall sent a letter march 27 to the benghazi committee saying the server was clean. the second thing she did was try to cast doubt on the very definition of classified materials. she said the state department may think this is classified and the intelligence community might think it's not classified and it's arcane inside the government argument about what's classified and what's not. and she did nothing wrong. one more thing, she continued to say she had not received any material marked classified which
is a change from the way she used to deal with this in saying she hadn't received any classified information. the last thing she did was she tried another joke about it. you heard her say i wiped the server clean with a cloth? she made a snapchat joke about it a few days ago. she is trying to deny, cast doubt and make light of this whole thing. bill: only hours prior the f.b.i. said it hoped to recover data from that server. that headline and that news likely was in her head when she came out yesterday. >> very big news. as we learned in so many stories. things that are deleted maybe aren't permanently deleted and can be found with enough searching. now the f.b.i. has this server. we know there was some sort of
attempt to clean information from it. but as happened in the past it appears technicians may be able to recover information. if that's the case, we would be able to mash some of the information -- match some of the information on the server with the statement mrs. clinton has made. bill: ron fournier said it's the press conference he has ever seen or given. ed henry said he just talked to donald trump. we have new polling numbers that show you how even donald trump is cutting into hillary clinton's lead. martha: there is still no deal over deflategate and tom brady's case is heading back to court. the fight over his four-game suspending after roger goodell ruled the quarterback conspired
to deflate game balls. in new york city they are trying to get a deal and they haven't been able to work one out so far. >> reporter: according to the associated press, both side met at an undisclosed location in new york city for self hours yesterday to try to hammer out a deal. but the two side remain far apart. so here we are back in federal court today. tom brady will not be here in the courthouse today. he's in west virginia in a team practice against the saints and he hopes to be in the game against the saints. the commissioner does not have to be here either. his lawyer showed up without hip. lawyers for both side will spend an hour or two laying out their cases. >> historically federal courts side with arbitration award at
least 90% of the time. but this case is not like other arbitration cases. this case has one the parties purporting to act as the arbitrator. >> reporter: while the players union agreed to this process there is too much of roger goodell's fingerprints all over this to have served as an impartial fact finder. martha: why do they think brady had a good case? >> reporter: this is about the nfl's collective bargaining agreement with the players union. it requires players to be told in advance what the punishment will be if they break the rules. but the league never specified
punishment for having knowledge about other players' misconduct or failure to turn over evidence tblb this case a cell phone. the judge will rule by the end of next week so the patriots will know who their starting quarterback will be come september 10. martha: we'll talk to jim gray about that. bill: a motel is leveled. what an employee noticed moment before a blast that may have saved lives. martha: a rape case at a prestigious prep school. bill: bob menendez on why he's breaking with the president on

at ally bank no branches equalsit's a fact.. kind of like mute buttons equal danger. ...that sound good? not being on this phone call sounds good. it's not muted. was that you jason? it was geoffrey! it was jason. it could've been brenda. bill: a fox news alert. a blow coming to the president's party on the iran deal. a no vote. new jersey senator bob menendez said he will join chuck schumer on that vote of no. good morning to you. two basic questions.
the first one, you oppose the deal, why? >> the purpose our negotiation was to insure that there would be no pathway for iran to achieve nuclear weapons capability. and this deal doesn't achieve that. it actually preserves iran's nuclear infrastructure so they can move in such a direction at a time of their choosing. we may get an alarm as a result of it. but our abilities to deal with that should it happen in the out years will be far more difficult, far more congressional. >> bill: your opposition may not even matter in the end to opposing this or stopping it. you are not aware of that, right? >> that's not the basis whether i was opposed or not. this is one of the most significant national security non-proliferation issues we have had in quite some time my view
of this as someone spending 23 years in the house and senate sitting on the foreign relations committee and pursuing iran for the better part of 20 years. why does iran who even need nuclear energy for domestic energy consumption when they have the second largest oil reserves. does this deal put us in a better national security position or not? i believe it doesn't, particularly if there is a violations and we have seen a 20-year history of violations. bill: are you active live recruiting democratic votes along the same lines? >> i'm sharing the speech i delivered yesterday to all of those colleagues that have not decided. i want them to have an
understanding of the insights of the countless hours. not every colleague necessarily had all the access i had. i want them to have a full understanding of the flaws in the agreement and this also a plan "b." i think many of my colleagues believe the deal is deeply flawed. bill: i are read your speech and what chuck schumer said. you said the stated purpose of negotiations was to disman all or parts of iran's infrastructure not just shrink it. if that's the case, why did the president agreef to this deal? >> i think the president is aspirational. there is a hope if you buy time and the iranians comply exactly as they are supposed to over this period of time that maybe iran will change.
maybe the forces of commerce and international integration will change. maybe they will stop holding american hostages and exploiting terrorism. but hope is not a national security initiative. i have to look at 20 years of violations of. bill: it looks like this deal is going go through, correct? >> we'll remain to see. there are over a dozen members who haven't decided. we'll see what the ultimate decision is. but i would say this isn't a bys isn't a binary choice between the agreement or war. that's a false choice. and it's a false choice to say people against the agreement are
those who voted for the iraq war. i didn't vote for the iraq war. bill: everybody is talking politics. how much trouble is hillary clinton in today? >> i don't know because every powell see has her beating every republican candidate out there. bill: our polling showed her in head-to-head matches. >> the ones i have seen show her chief feeding almost every republican candidate. bill: what does she need to do or say to get around this or by it or put it behind her. >> i think it will come to its tone conclusion and i think that conclusion based upon what the secretary has said will exonerate her as having done anything wrong. there could be 12 angels coming down from heaven saying she did
the right thing and there would be people po who wouldn't believe it. bill: thank you for coming in today. martha: here is what's coming up. a brawl breaks out in the middle of a courtroom. a witness threatened to kill the suspect in that case. bill: donald trump doubles down on the children of illegal immigrants. some of his opponents slam him for that. >> we have a country, we have borders and you need law. >> you are not going to be able to deport people who have american citizenship now. these friends were on a trip when
their windshield got chipped. so they scheduled at safelite.com... they didn't have to change their plans, or worry about a thing. and i fixed it right away... ...with a strong repair they can trust. plus, with most insurance a safelite repair is no cost to you. really?! being there whenever you need us... that's another safelite advantage. safelite repair, safelite replace.
martha: donald trump not back down on his stance on illegal immigration. he told bill o'reilly the constitution does not in his minds protect children of illegal immigrants. >> the whole thing with anchor babies, i don't think you are right about that. >> if you are born here, you are an american, period. period. >> but many lawyers are saying that's not the way it is in terms of this. they are in mexico, they are going to have a baby, they come here for a couple days, they have the baby. it's going to have to be tested. but they say it's not going to hold up in court. >> reporter: one republican
candidates who opposes this, jim gill snore joins me now. you believe that this is not the right to go about it. >> i emphatically disagree with donald trump and governor walker. bill o'reilly is right and trump and walker are wrong. the guarantees of the 14th amendment to the constitution were put into the constitution to make sure african-americans were not denied their civil rights under the constitution, and likewise to talk about a government beginning to pick and choose who gets to have it seasonship and who doesn't, what disfavored group of people may not be granted citizenship is wrong. martha: we talk about people
coming across the mexican border. but families in europe overstay their visas. they get tracked down by i.c.e. and they get sent back and they have to stay there for years. why is this different? >> they are two different things. my immigration plan says there is no path to citizenship for people who are illegal aliens. that is the kind of amnesty i reject. this is a different topic. this is a guarantee people born inside the united states of america are granted citizenship and it's protected. martha: most people believe it's quite clear on that. apparently donald trump has attorneys who have a different take on that. >> i'm surprised any lawyer with a law license would tell donald trump something like that.
martha: when you started to enforce the laws on the books, do you disagree with tripling the number of cuss tosms enforcement at the border? >> i agree with that. martha: track down visa overstays and raid workplaces. >> i do agree with that. but we are not going to deport the people who are here right now. martha: we sends people back all the time. we do it. >> my plan says this, if a person is here at this point. not future people. people here at this point we should grant them the opportunity to work. if their children are born in this country they are protected by the guarantees of the 14th amendment of the u.s. constitution. people might get a work permit but they cannot get amnesty. martha: he's talking about anchor babies where people jump
over the border close to the time when they are going to have the baby so they can reap the benefits of that baby being an american citizen. but that practice he believes is abusing the system and it's not quite right. do you agree? >> the fact is the trade-off is we have the guarantees of the constitution for people and it's dangerous to go into a situation where you take people who are not favored and begin to remove their citizenship. trump and walker are wrong about this. wrong. martha: you said it's written to protect african-americans at the end of slavery. what if you start setting a precedent. saying that's abusing our system. you are not allowed to do that. everyone agrees, you can't send
back 11 million people. but if you start to enforce the laws you are sending a message. then the message on the other side of the border is you can't get away with it anymore. >> i don't support the abuse of the system by anchor babies. but that's not the point. the effort to remove the privileges and immunities of people who are disfavored, i oppose that. there is no chance in the law that will end up being the law. that's not possible. martha: i know you want to say something about hillary clinton and action you would like to see taken. >> i called for a special prosecutor to be appointed. it should have been done a long time ago. you have the justice department investigating hillary clinton. so the obama administration is investigating the obama administration. even if they were to say at some point hillary clinton is okay,
nobody would believe it. i called in april on another program for hillary clinton to withdraw from the race as being unqualified because she cannot project the trust to the american people. now we have to inject trust by having a special prosecutor appointed right now. bill: tom brady's case may be heading to trial. did the league go overboard or will brady be benched? martha: rape allegations at a press tee just prep school. >> this case is a owen labrie sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl. it's about how he thought about this for months. how he made a plan.
bill: in the palace attack in istanbul, two suspects have been detained. turkey is calling it a terror group. martha: attorneys for the nfl players association and the football league back at it this morning. the issue is what has become known as deflategate. so far they don't seem to be getting anywhere. sportscaster jim gray joins me now. good to have you here this morning. apparently roger goodell and tom brady got together tuesday. the report were that was an attempt to reach some kind of settlement. do you know what happened there? >> it got nowhere.
the nfl right now has all the card because they don't believe they are in a position where they will be overturned because judges rarely overturn arbitration settings in a collective bargaining agreement. but the nfl was raked over the coals and he got the national football league to admit there is no direct evidence against tom brady. the nfl is trying to dictate the settlement because they believe they hold all the card. they want tom brady to admit to the findings of the report an won't do that. according to him he had nothing to do with any of this and he's going to hold firm to that. and he was under oath when he was under the commissioner's appeal. he want no suspension, possibly a fine. the fine would not be for not
cooperating. it would be he could have been more cooperative. martha: rick leventhal talked to attorneys who said this boils down to $technicality about -- boils down to some technicalities about the cell phone issue should not have been on the table. tom brady didn't turn over his cell phone. but what everybody wants to know is whether he's going to be on the field in the beginning of september and that's what he wants to know, too. what do you think will be the ultimate outcome. >> th the national football leae is banging on the agreement that the arbitrations are rarely if ever overturned. the facts are bad against the
national football league. when your attorney admits there is no direct evidence, why are you punishing him. the integrity of the game is of importance to sports fans and the league. how, the integrity of the compliance of that and the wait punishment is being hand out, that also has to be a higher standard, and it has not been i. if this is still going upon, can you believe we are coming into our 8th month talking about deflategate? i think what's going to happen here is the nflpa thinks this process is flawed. this is a landmark case for the nfl because if this does get overturned this could go on to appeal for a couple of years. but this will threaten and undermine the authority of the commissioner. it's well beyond what tom brady
did or didn't do. this is a line in the sand for the commissioner's authority. martha: it's something they think he's more likely than not that he was aware of. it's a loose standard of evidence. good to see you. bill: a prep school student accused of raping a fellow student. the alleged victim on the stand yesterday. she says owen labrie assaulted her in may of 2014. what is expected from there, molly, today? >> reporter: we are day two of this trial, a very emotional day in court as the alleged victim took the stand and identified her attacker. her story is just beginning to be told. we are expected to get further details about what she says occurred in this alleged a attack.
prosecutors say owen labrie was a senior at the prestigious school in concord, new hampshire and the victim was a freshman. investigators allege labrie persuaded her to meet him through online messages all part of an attempt to score. labrie's attorney said the contact was consensual. >> this case is about owen labrie sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl. it's about how he thought about this for months. how he made a plan and he executed the plan. >> it's about two high school kid and the experiences they had growing up. and everything including the
confusion, the impressions, the retroactive view in hindsight about what happened. >> reporter: the alleged victim testified she was aware of this so-called tradition on campus of upper classmen seeking to seduce store score with these younger classmen. but she did not think it was simply about having sex. martha: the polls show donald trump has been dominating the field of republican contenders. can that last? we'll investigate and talk about it next. bill: that is chaos in the courtroom that led to a brawl between a murder suspect and a witness in court.
cars for crash survival, subaru has developed our most revolutionary feature yet. a car that can see trouble... ...and stop itself to avoid it. when the insurance institute for highway safety tested front crash prevention nobody beat subaru models with eyesight. not honda. not ford or any other brand. subaru eyesight. an extra set of eyes, every time you drive.
bill: donald trump maintaining the number one spot among presidential contenders. joe trippi and blood blakeman -- brad blakeman, good morning to you. donald trump at 24%. jeb bush at 13 *. carson jumped 5 points and fiorina jumped 4. brad, do you have any disagreement with this poll. >> we do know that 2016 is the year of the insider. trump is very popular.
the question is, is he going to be able to turn that popularity into votes? you have to move people to the polls. if he can turn that into infrastructure and put money aside and start hiring people, then you will see a serious change in the way trump deals with his candidates i. bill: in 2008, why was obama so popular? he brought emotion and inspired people. whether you agree with him or not, that's what he did in every gymnasium where he delivered his speech. donald trump has that flair. >> both parties, the establishment lost control of their nominating process. it's being taken over by individual candidate brands. there is no one on the race on either side that is more a master of brand building than
donald trump. if you look inside the numbers it looks like he has room to grow. he's leading on the most trusted on the economy and the most trusted on immigration. numbers like 40% to 45%. so he could start to consolidate more votes here as we go further. if he can become a real candidate in terms of the organizational structure putting the time in to do the organizational things you need to do in iowa, new hampshire. bill: this what else we found last friday in our fox polling. when we ask this question? join was down 17 points. look where he is now. he's within striking range there. a lot of it has to do with hillary clinton's unfortune she is having with her emails.
if hillary clinton would not have been so distracted. donald trump would not have been able to so quickly advance on her. bill: joe, does that concern you when you see the rights against the democratic front runner that quickly? >> no. this thing is in november it will be a dead heat race it was always going to be that. bill: november of next year. >> next year, i'm sorry. regardless of who the democratic nominee is, it will be a close race. they are going to start closing the gap on hillary clinton. we are going to get to those numbers, no gnat matter what their negatives are. jump is going to have his
negatives or jeb bush pore whoever it is. bill: the u.s. is still a 50-50 country and you go back to 2000 to prove that. according to the poll 45% say they trust trump more than any other republican candidate on the economy. 44% say they have trust trump on illegal immigration and 32% trust him most to handle isis. no other candidate comes close on any of these issues. >> trump is definitive. this is not policy he's making. there is nothing there there when i get past the presumptive pronouncements he makes. that's the reproblem with trump. so far he has been definitive and strong. but now we have to look behind the curtain. he has to come up with policies.
and he has to show us who he is relying on on immigration and foreign policy and the economy and national defense. there has to be people -- that's not enough. >> more to come on that. thank you, gentlemen. good to have you back on that. martha: you remember the cyber attack we told you about, the cheating website ashley madison? it looks like the hackers have followed through on a big threat. billthreat.. >> welcome to the most exclusive room in las vegas. this is the intake structure. we are on the very bottom of lake mead. directly above us is 200 feet of lake water. [female announcer] when you see this truck...

bill: the hackers who stole data from the cheating website ashley madison followed through on their threat. they released names and details of credit card transaction. those details on the so-called dark web. 32 million accounts affected. martha: las vegas has a new solution for the crippling western drought. it's a tunnel to be built under lake mead. it's designed to slow down the rapid drop in water levels. good morning, how does this work? >> reporter: we took an amazing and slightly unnerving
journey deep beneath the waters of lake mead. how can nevada keep tapping into the waters of lake mead even when the levels sink to historic lows. 600 feet down, and three miles along the dark narrow tunnel, the culmination of a 7-year, $1817 million -- 817 million project. above that the waters of lake mead. in a few week's time that plug will be lifted and the water will flood the tunnel. because it's at the bottom of
the lake it will guarantee water for las vegas. >> when you consider the fact we are responsible for providing water to two million people to the economic engine of the state of nevada. this is a responsibility we don't take lightly. >> reporter: to see why this is such a critical prong you only have to look at the shoreline of lake mead. you can see where the water line was a few years ago and where it is now. but it seems on this occasion, american ingenuity has the answer. bill: fox news obtained two emails that helped spark the f.b.i. investigation. where they came from, what they were about, next at the top of theep hour. bp 64/40
a brand new benghazi bombshell involving hillary clinton's e-mail. we are learning who sent potentially classified information on benghazi using the private server. i am martha maccallum. >> and i will bill hemmer. good morning. that classified intelligence contained in two e-mails coming from military sources and sensitive fbi files on the benghazi attack. the senders are jake sullivan and another close advisor to her, oboth leading the campaign. catherage is here. >> reporter: these e-mails were released in may and were the
catalyst for the investigation because they contained classified information. one e-mail was sent to ms. clinton's private account by jake sullivan, and the e-mail was posted to the state department and it is retracted and includes the notation showing it is classified and the other refers to the suspects in the attack came from fbi forces. the second information was forded by her aid who works for the clinton campaign as well. fox news is told the e-mail had classified information from military intelligence sources and was mistakingly released without redraction.
>> they were sending it over the e-mail server. it is outrageous and dangerous. this is a grave security matter and requires rigorous investigation by the fib. >> reporter: neither e-mail is marked classified but that is no excuse. >> reaction from the state department? >> reporter: fox news asked the statement department and ms. clinton for an explanation and if any action was taken against the aids. >> whether it was a personal acoa account or a government account i didn't send or receive classified material or receive any material that was marked or assigned classified. >> reporter: but the office for the intelligence community inspector general, the watch dog that got the ball rolling, is
stand by the assessments that both e-mails contained classified information at the time they were sent to and received. they were upgraded to classified after being reviewed by the state department. >> good reporting and thank you. >> reporter: you are welcome. and donald trump is squaring off with bill o'reilly over the controversial proposal to end birthright citizenship. trump arguing the 14th amendment saying if you are born on american soil you are a citizen and he said some of them will not hold up in court. >> i think you are wrong with the 14th amendment and the concept of anchor babies. >> if you are born here you are an american. period. period. >> but there are many lawyers
who are saying that is not the way it is in terms of this. what happens is they are in mexico, they are going to have a baby -- >> everybody knows this. >> they come a couple days, have the baby. >> do you envision federal police kicking in the doors dragging families out and putting them on a bus? do you envision that? >> i don't think they have american citizenship. >> chris stywall is here. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> the question is is birthright another issue that causes donald trump trouble or is it an issue embraced by the people who have been embracing him all along and they cheer him on? >> it keeps the people who support him because anchor babies and birthright
citizenship is a huge issue for the quarter of the republican party. it is the number one thing. and they want to hear thhim tal about it. where it is tricky is trump is not saying we will have to have a constitutional amendment to repeal the amendment that makes it possible because he knows and we know that in order to get 38 state legislatures after you get 67 senators, and 300 members in the house, to all vote for a constitutional amendment, if you could ever do it, which is unlikely, it would be a year's long process trump says the judge will throw it out on a technicality. >> i think his plan could be if you start to enforce the laws, set examples, and maybe if he gets one case going through the court system, and the arguments
on both side are raised, it starts to send a signal that things are not going to be the way they are and you in the process of changing what you can get away with. >> that is no different than what every candidate on the republican side says. >> chris, those candidates all say but you can't do this or that. i am saying the reason trump is going attention is because he is going whole hog, he is all in, and his assessment is that is how you have to be to move the needle a bit. >> reporter: but if you cannot deliver what you are whole hog on. bill o'reilly said how will you end birthright citizenship?
it says it clearly. the rest of republican is discussing repealing the 14th amendment and donald trump says he will not have to do that. moy lawyers tell me we will get thrown out on technicality. you promise big over time, go whole hog, then when you get bogged down it is frustrating for the people who liked you. >> the next measure is pushing past the 25%. they have been floating around before and after the debate. he has been in that range. do you believe he can get to 30%? >> 25% is enough if the republican party stays divided as it is. his strategy is push through at
this level of support, as long as there are 16 other candidates dividing up the vote share, 25% is enough. that plan won't work because the number of candidates will drop out. pressure like rick perry and bobby jindel to drop out because their supporter will say as much as i want to see you live out your dream that will put pressure on trump. >> it will be an interesting fall. >> you ain't lying. thousands evacuated with dozens of wild fires ranging in the western u.s. scorching more than a million acres and burning hundreds of homes to the ground. >> there is not just many words.
you know, i just wished she could have grabbed a few things. but you know just glad she made it out okay. that is the most important thing. we hope eventually we can find something that can bring my mom some joy, i guess. >> tough to watch a lot of this. we are getting dramatic footage of what is being called a fire whirl. we talk about this yet again today. is anything better out there, william? >> reporter: today is better than yesterday, bill. four new fires instead of ten. still one of the worst years on record. the size of maryland is now ash and dust. washington and oregon, eight fires over 140 miles each, building containment lines
around the flames. >> there is a lot of people who lost property and a whole beach wiped out with 10-12 homes. >> everyone left the town. it is devastating. >> reporter: look at the smoke stretching in the midwest. so thick in washington they cannot see the sun. >> i cannot breathe. it is killing my lungs >> my nose is running and my eyes are watering. >> reporter: these maps help tell the story. record-setting drought in the west, dry brush, timber weak and vulnerable. no humidity, gusty winds, and devastating dry thunderstorms which last week ignited hundreds of fires leaving states begging for tankers and prompting officials for the first time in nine years to mobilize 200 soldiers who will be deployed on sunday in washington state. >> how is california holding up,
william? >> reporter: you know, we have 13 fires, 20% contained or better is the good news. here is a map of the hume fire, 0 containment, fire activity in the red and yellow is older activity. the red is breaching route 180 making many people get out including a man who has been camping since 1988. >> that campground is a second home. i am very, very emotionally involved should that catch fire. it is a beautiful place. it is one of the most beautiful places i have ever been. >> reporter: lightning starts fire and so do people. one man pulling a chain behind his truck started three fires.
>> holy cow. thank you, william. isis taking depravety to a new low beheading an 82-year-old premi premier archeologist. and a senior at an elite prep school is charged with rape of a teen saying it is part of a freshman orientation but the suspect is saying that is ridiculous. >> and meeting with benjamin netanyahu who says the nuclear deal will lead to the destruction of israel. >> when someone threatens to
annihilate you i think you should take them serious and you should not provide the bullets for the gun they will point to your head. your head. where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations.

building after someone reported smelling gas. that worker saved lives at that motel-6. isis militants beheaded a world renowned archeologist and hung his body among the city's ancient roman ruins he protected most of his life. he had taken steps to protect how the ancient treasures, because he saw the looting and destruction of the ruins in other countries, in iraq and elsewhere, he had them in secret, they tried to get him to reveal where they were and that secret led him to his grave.
lieutenant colonel ralph peters is here. talk to us about the motivation of this crime? of this attack on this man. because it is an effort, in essence, to wipe out history that isis does not agree with. >> reporter: yes, it certainly is. and they accused of him being worshiping idols because of his work in protecting and preserving the ruins and accused him of associating with foreign heretics and killed him in public. beheaded him in public. as horrible as the individual crime is what we are still missing with our blabber about how awful is terrorism works. this brand of terrorism, horrific beheadings and tortures and murders, it works because it is how a minority can control a
population. terror worked for stallin and other regimes. it worked for the nazis. germany was able to control europe through terror. the only way you get rid of the people and it is not through sermonizing but you kill them. and it works to intimidate the population. you see your neighborhood getting beheaded you will do what the beheader says. but it is incredible draw for desperate young men who are still flocking to islamic states >> the resistance is non-existent. the president said we were degrading and destroying this group. what is the latest on that
effort? >> reporter: the islamic state is still growing. the attacks in iraq has sputtered the ground to a halt. it is a little harded for troops to get to islamic states they are still flocking in. the numbers are not down, the determination isn't down, and the islamic state is creeping forward. it is not just syria and iraq, they are roots in afghanistan, libya, yemen, soon to be creeping in the algeria. back in the dark ages we used to say too much talk and not enough action and that is exactly true. president obama cannot talk the islamic state out of existence. pin prick airstrikes help some point. but if you are unwilling to kill every last one of those suckers no matter what it takes or how
this is a pretty cool story. the beetles first every recording contract is up for sale. it has the original drummer on it. no ringo star was involved at that point. that wasn't in till 1962 did he join. the contract is expected to fetch $160,000. that is a low ball it seems. >> james rosen is on the phone already. >> he is trying to get everybody to chip in. getting approval from fda is the female version of viagra.
it is the first of its kind. kristen fisher is live on this. it could be available when? >> reporter: as early as october. the company that makes this, sprout pharmaceuticals, is calling it a game changer for the millions of women who suffer from low libido. >> people are not going to be hypersexual and having sex in inappropriate places but making people in stable, loving relationships have normal desires and sexual thoughts. >> reporter: sounds great, right? but opponents say the desire trumps safety and science blaming the approval on a marketing campaign since the fda rejected it twice.
>> bringing a desired drug to market for women would be a great thing if it worked. this isn't it. this drug on average increases satisfying sexual activity by one event per month at most. that is not very effective at all. >> reporter: to see an effect you have to take the drug every day for two-three weeks and it will cost $$70 a month and you cannot drink alcohol. >> it is called female viagra but based on the images it is different. >> reporter: it is. viagra works with increasing blood flow to a specific area. with woman it is all up here. this literally changes the chemicals in your brain and that is one of the reason opponents of the drugs have been so against it. >> thank you, doctor.

school is accused of raping a freshman and he said it is part of a game but the other side says that is not the case. we have the panel here to argue this. what is the prosecution's best evidence? >> i think the prosecution's best evidence is looking at the victim's behavior. why would she make this up and that is the questions jurors want to know. why would she call her mother in the middle of the night in tears claiming he raped her? why would she subject herself to scrutiny, and possibly negative attention, if this wasn't true. these are the facts the prosecution is going to have to focus in terms of swaying the jury and persuading them the victim has no motive >> she will be on the stand, right? >> riot -- right. >> it will come down to how credible she is in telling her
story. >> absolutely. why she is she is saying. >> to the defense, there are text messages or e-mails between these two, or both. as a defense attorney wall what will that prove? >> they go to prove there was no forced rape. the prosecution is painting him out to be a monster. he doesn't look like a rapist. he looks like harry potter. he sits with his glasses on, his young innocent kid, how could he violently rape this woman and plan it for months and months? >> that could be. he may look innocent but coming back to the evidence what do the messages tell you? >> let's go to the scene. the evidence is no ripped clothing, no defensive marks, no marking or browsing. the only indication is that some form of sex took place. did it take place with him?
an hour early? forensic never gives you that answer. you look at the evidence after the fact. many women have what is known as regret sex and feel dirty after. she is very young. i am not claiming that is what happened here. but that is a possibility. and the idea -- >> hang on. that evidence will come into this trial. if that is the case of them text messaging about protection used during the alleged act. as a prosecutor, is that a problem for them? >> that is going to be a problem. i think the prosecution will face a hurdle in explaining why she was flirting after the exchange of the text messages. she is only 15 and lacks sexual experience. this was her first time engaging in sexual activity with this guy so the prosecution is going to
ask the jury to make that into consideration. this girl doesn't have a lot of experience. >> you would have to prove she didn't consent? >> that is correct. statutory rape, the legal age is 16, and she is 15 and not capable of consenting. but forced assault or rape the prosecution has the burden and that is tough. >> to both of you is this a hard case to prove or not? >> i think it is. i think it is going to be difficult because her conduct after the fact and something she is subjected to in terms of tough cross-examining. if she didn't want this to happen why is she engaging in the text and e-mails. >> i think it was a tough point. i think it was consentual and he is guilty of statutory rape but
new hampshire has romeo and juliet law that takes the charge down if it is consentual. >> four felony charges and six misdemeanors. three women on the jury and 11 men in new hampshire. thank you for analyzing this with us. >> thanks, bill. >> back to 2016 for a moment as the republican presidential hopefuls are in new hampshire at a summit on education going on now. organizers are saying they hope the candidates leave their talking points and have a conversation about failing u.s. schools. a very important topic in the country. john roberts is live in new hampshire. what is the main focus there, john? >> reporter: good morning. main focus is one of the biggest issues facing both voters in this election and the
candidates. how they would deal with things like school choice, common core, and other things. governor kasich is on the stage behind me. this is the biggest talk on education i have seen. six republican candidates and the democrats get their chance in iowa in october. common core is the topic of discussion. bush and kasich support it others like bobby jindel have gone to court to oppose it. the balance between federal involvement and local control and finding the right occasion is another discussion. the moderator says that will be a big test were the candidates to answer. >> what is the federal government's role in doing that? it is one thing as a governor, but when you are a republican and arguing about the local and federal control, it is harder to a
articulate what you would do. >> reporter: jeb bush says the white house needs to be a partner in education but not dictate. he does defend federally involvement. >> no child left behind created the need for accountable and it was state lead which is the way it should be. but if you don't measure, you don't care. if a state says it doesn't matter you will have failure in the lives of children becoming adults. >> reporter: one of the things governor bush said he would to better educate children is expand the literacy programs they have in florida by taking federal dollars and repurposing them to literate-specific programs. >> we are behind many of the industrialized countries in math and science. school choice is always a main focus in those conversations. what are we hearing from these candidates on that? >> that is going to be a big
challenge to talk about expanding. bush said he would take title one money to create bigger voucher choice. most candidates agree the public schools are broken and the only way to improve the education system is to get more competition in the system. >> john, thank you. interesting stuff. >> presidential candidate mike huckabee meeting with benjamin netanyahu who is speaking out against the nuclear deal and he joins us live in jerusalem on why he thinks the deal present as clear and present danger to israel and the united states. >> the iranians said we have developed a missile system that can deliver the holocaust to israel. exact quote. i didn't make that up. the iranians did. you total your brand new car. nobody's hurt,but there will still be pain.
this friday, two female soldiers become the first women to graduate from the elite ranger school. the military office from connecticut and the lieutenant, an apache helicopter pilot gradated the following year. the navy is planning to open their elite seal time operations. >> they are impressive women and we would love to hear from them. good for them. mike huckabee is meeting with israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, while visiting israel
and speaking out against the nuclear deal. mike huckabee is live from jerusalem. >> great to be with you. >> what did you learn from the talks with benjamin netanyahu and what does he think about the talks? >> he and i have known each other for 20 years and i have been coming to israel for 42 years. without disclosing the conversations, which was off the record, the one thing i learned in the last couple days in israel is the people realize how dangerous the deal is but not just for them but for the whole world, including the united states. it is refreshing to see some of the democrats in the senate finally standing up and being real statesman and not just playing the partisan game. recognizing this is not a good idea. >> yeah. as people who are against the deal think that senator menendez has shown courage in standing
out against the deal. here he is talking to bill moments agrago. >> i want to them to understand the countless hours. not every colleague is on the committee committee have has all of the access i do. i want them to understand the flaws of the agreement and there is a plan-b. many colleagues believe the agreement is deeply flawed. >> talking about if he can persuade other democrats to turn against the bill and he said there is a plan-b and we were told the plan is this plan or war. >> that is one of the problems. they always present it as if their idea is the only one and the option is catastrophic. this deal is catastrophic. it doesn't meet the criteria
they said had to happen like any time inspections, not having enrichment, and inspecting on military instillations. this empowers the iranians with $150 billion and they made deals to buy four s-3 missile systems before the deal is engaged. this is a why a lot of people, like lthe senators, are realizig they have to oppose this. >> it is going to be interesting to note it will be difficult to put this back in the bottle. they already starting spending sump of the money they will get. i want to ask you about politics here. hillary clinton got tough questions from ed henry in twirls -- terms of the fbi
wiping the server clean and thinking they will get back. how does it look? >> this is a legal issue. they found the server was in a denver apartment bathroom gives concept to the idea it was wiped clean. what a disaster for hillary clinton this has turned out to be. this is a little mom and pop technology company that happened to be big donors to the democratic party but very little security according to a former employee. the more we learn and the more facts come out i think it makes hillary's jokes fall flat. the worst thing that could happen is happening. her e-mail disaster is becoming the butt of every comedian's jokes. that is not a good place for
politicians. >> and you are at 4.3% average among the gop candidates out there. how long do you hang in if the numbers don't move higher? >> well, looking better for me than they do for most of the 17 people on stage. the numbers at this point don't mean much. if they do, rudy giuliani would have been the favorite, followed by thompson and romney a, and f years ago it would be bachman in second lead and perry in first. >> what do you think will break trump? >> i think it is yet to be seen. i have taken the position that trump is getting all of the publicity he needs without my assistance. so i will focus on my campaign, views, and platform.
donald trump is certainly getting enough air in his balloon to float him just about including the altitude his helicopter flies. >> sounds like a good debate line. jenna lee is coming up with "happening now" next. how are you doing? good morning to you. >> speaking of donald trump, bill, that is one of the things we will talk about. his position on immigration is taking a tougher turn as other republicans move to the right and what impact might that have on 2016. karl rove on that. and hillary clinton's e-mail controversy continues to heat up. she declares she did nothing wrong. what happened at the news conference yesterday when answered questions? ed henry starting us off and we will ask him what really went down. a treasure hunter doing what he does best. >> whoa! >> yeah, they literally strike gold off the coast of florida.
my trusty bow. and free of stuff i don't like. we only eat chex cereal. no artificial flavors, and it's gluten-free. mom, brian threw a ball in the house! the drought is affecting at pg&e we've definitely put a focus on helping our agricultural customers through the drought. when they do an energy efficiency project and save that money they feel it right in their pocket book. it's exciting to help a customer with an energy efficiency project because not only are they saving energy but they are saving water. we have a lot of projects at pg&e that can help them with that and that's extremely important while we're in a drought. it's a win for the customer and it's a win for california. together, we're building a better california.
a million worth of treasure and on the 300th anniversary of the sinking of the ship we recovered $4 million worth of treasure. >> that is called a royal? >> that is correct. it was made by a royal decree for the king of spain as a presentation piece. it is perfect example of the coinage at the time. there are only about 20 known to exist and we found nine. >> so there are 11 more. how much are they worth? >> $300,000 a piece. >> you have three so almost at a million? >> correct. >> and the smaller ones are what? >> the royal is the largest d denomination they made which is half an ounce.
we found 300 of these. >> how long have you been looking? >> i have been in the business since 2010. the shipyards have been savaged for 50 years. >> do you think something is there or is it guessing? >> it is a little guessing, we cover up an area and see what, if anything, is on the bottom of the ocean. >> you struck gold. >> we did. literally. >> you said when you are out there it has a magical feeling. what did you mean? >> it is something i cannot put my finger on. there is an energy that prevaer vades the wracks but i cannot explain it. these shipwrecks had more story to tell.
>> did you sleep with this last night? a million worth of gold? >> i have armed security with me and will return to florida with that as well. >> i almost want to do heads or tails. congrats. good luck when you head back out. now i have martha's christmas gift. >> he will never know if you put one in your pocket. more on the clinton e-mail scandal. fox news obtained the two classified e-mails that caused the fbi to seize her server and begin the investigation. fascinating and coming up.
pretty much every day. that's amazing. he got away. he wasn't dinner or lunch. but his brother or sister might be soon. bye, everybody. see you tonight on "kelly file." jenna: hillary clinton dismissing questions about her email during a lively exchange insisting the controversy isn't about her. gregg: mrs. clinton suggesting nothing new here. but the state department reveals more than 300 additional emails that could contain classified information. after a town hall in las vegas, mrs. clinton shrugged off ed henry's questions about her
