3:00 am
many of our economies but the answer is not to cut ourselves from each other. it's rather, to work together. and this brings me back to where i began. the world depends upon a democratic europe that upholds the principles of pleuralism and diversity and freedom that are our common creed. as free people's we cannot allow the forces that i've described, fears about security or economic anxieties, to under mine our commitment to the universal values that are the source of our strength. i have to deal with a congress.
3:01 am
there's no doubt how a united europe works together can be improved. but look around the world at author i tearian governments and they're okay accuracies that rule by fear and oppression, there is no doubt that democracy is the most just and effective form of government ever created. [ applause ] when i talk about democracy, i don't just mean elections. there are a number of countries where people get 70, 80% of the vote, but they control all the media, and the judiciary, and
3:02 am
civil society organizations and ngos can't organize and have to be registered and are intimidated. i mean, real democracies as we see here in europe and in the united states. so we have to be vigilant in defense of these pillars of democracy. not just elections, but rule of law as well as fair elections. a free press, vibrant civil societies where citizens can work for change. and we should be suspicious of those who claim to have the interests of europe at heart and yet don't practice the very values that are essential to europe.
3:03 am
that have made freedom in europe so real. yes, these are unsettling times and when the future is uncertain, there seems to be an instinct in our human nature to withdraw to the perceived comfort and security of our own tribe, our own sect, our own nationality, people who look like us, sound like us, but in today's world, more than any time in human history, that is a false comfort. it pits people against one another because of what they look like or how they pray or who they love, and yet we know where that kind of twisted thinking can lead. it can lead to oppression. it can lead to segregation, and
3:04 am
internment camps. in the united states, we've long wrestled with questions of race and integration and we do to this day and we still have a lot of work to do. but or progress allows somebody like me to now stand here as president of the united states. that's because we committed ourselves to a larger ideal, one based on a creed, not a race, not a nationality. a set of principles, truths that we held to be self-evident, that all men were created equal. and now as europe confronts questions of immigration and religion and assimilation, i want you to remember that our countries are stronger, they are more secure and more successful
3:05 am
when we welcome and integrate people of all backgrounds and faith and make them feel as one, and that includes our fellow citizens who are muslim. [ applause ] look the sudden arrival of so many people from beyond our borders, especially when their cultures are very different, that can be daunting. we have immigration issues in the united states as well along our southern border of the united states and from people arriving from all around the world who get a visa and decide they want to stay. and i know the politics of immigration and refugees is hard, it's hard everywhere, in
3:06 am
every country. just as a handful of neighborhoods should bear all the burdens of refugee settlement, neither should any one nation. all of us have to step up, all of us share the responsibility, that includes the united ates. but even as we take steps that are required to ensure our security, even as we help turkey and greece cope with this influx in a way that is safe and humane, even as chancellor merkel and other european leaders work for an orderly immigration and resettlement process, rather than a disorderly one, even as we all need to -- collectively do more. >> you are looking live at the president of the united states in hanover, germany. he announced earlier that the
3:07 am
united states will be sending 250 u.s. special forces operators to syria for a total of 300. that part of the economic speech there today. >> meanwhile, to the jerry man people, he's not only speaking about that, he's also speaking about the history of the relationship, how vital it is for the european union to stay together from his opinion. he says maybe you need an outsiders' perspective and he also went on to say to that it's good that income inequality, it should be a focus of everybody's -- are of everybody's economy, of every country, and equal rights for all. >> that's exactly why we brought in tucker carlson who was up late last night and up late this weekend. what do you think of this 250 additional men and women going over there? >> probably an effort undertaken in good faith but it doesn't answer the question, the basic question is who runs syria? who do you want to run to run syria? >> it's a black hole.
3:08 am
it's affecting europe and the united states. could assad stay in power or not? >> we're combining with a bunch of rebels we weren't supposed to be dealing with. >> exactly. in a lot of cases, they have interests contrary to ours, again, what do you want it to look like in five years, i haven't heard anybody in the administration articulate that and it's troubling. >> i don't think the president has thought that far. cruz and kasich have announced an appliance. what they are going to do, they are teaming up to take on trump. kasich is going to stop campaigning in indiana and mr. cruz is going to stop in oregon ultimately to help take on trump. >> i saw kasich last night. i don't fully understand it, but
3:09 am
i think the idea is vote against trump in order that the nominee, the ultimate nominee is chosen at the convention. >> that's their only hope. >> a lot of republicans are absolutely sure they don't want party elites pick the nominee. they don't want to see a chaotic convention in cleveland. >> here's what they are going to do. kasich has pulled out his entire team out of indiana. they are doing -- kasich is not coming out and saying all my people that wanted to vote for me which looks 16% vote for cruz but he's pulling out and he's saying, cruz is saying i'm pulling out of oregon, idaho and new mexico. ones coming up on the oregon is coming up on the 17th of may, new mexico on the 7th. idaho also in the mix there. he's saying essentially vote for kasich. this is their push to stop trump from getting 1237. rubio was calling for this
3:10 am
early. governor walker when he left early in this thing said if you guys don't narrow the field, it's going to be trump's primary. trump is going to do -- to get the nomination. why not? >> you have to be pretty good at math to understand what you just said. >> not really. take somebody out. if you create a one oin one with kasich and cruz, they believe they will beat trump. >> that's the idea. i got to think if that's going to happen, it would have happened already. cruz and rubio and kasich, you have two really talented candidates representing traditional criticism. on cruz side on social issues and kasich robust conservative economic policy and a lot of republican voters are rejecting that. there's something deeper going on here and that is that republican voters are looking for something new. they are terrified and they don't think the old answers are adequate. it doesn't mean that they love trump or they are confident he can do it. >> donald trump did say themco
3:11 am
lewding them, kasich and cruz is desperation, but they are desperate at this point, right? the only hope they have going into convention is a contested convention. >> of course. but it also plays into donald trump's basic story line this is a rigged system. they are stealing it. they are cheating. that's the reason his numbers is up. >> they say that whole rigged system is resonating. here's what he said after the collusion was official. he said two grown politicians have toco lewd against one person in order to try to stop that person from getting the nomination. it's both of them against him. >> we can see trump is still writing his own press releases. >> donald trump is saying you know what, i'm going to call it desperation. i'm focusing my campaign on going after hillary clinton. he said this and he also gave himself a nickname. take a listen. >> i don't know if she will be
3:12 am
easier and harder, that's the one i want to beat. an election between crooked hillary and wonderful donald. [ laughter ] >> it will be the biggest, most incredible vote-getting election in the history of our country. i don't think i have to lose. if i do, i'm not sure you are ever going to see me folks. i think i'll go to turnberry and play golf. >> he also called bernie sanders the communist who will take every penny you make. >> easy absolutely hilarious. that's part of the appeal. the fact that he's enjoying himself while the other candidates aren't. >> does it bother you that paul manafort is coming out and saying it's an act? he's not really like that. >> he tells you what he's doing
3:13 am
as he's doing it. here's the trick. here's how it's done. i don't think this is about trump. i think this is about terrified republican primary voters who don't think traditional party orthodoxy is enough to save the country or their own personal finances. they want the nominee to be chosen by voters rather than by the party and that's the basic question. who gets to decide and if that's the question on which people vote, trump is going to win, even if people aren't comfortable with him. >> tucker carlson, you worked late last night. does that count for o.t. for last week or this week? >> i'm talking to the shop steward about it. the white house about to release some of the secret pages of the 9/11 report. we are led to believe. retired army general anthony tata says it's time to call the

history. if you believe that you are of one gender, but your dna and your physical appearance and your physical anatomy are evidence that you are of another gender and there's that conflict, then if we allow people culturally to dictate terms in their. i think it might. why, because there's history. there's culture, there's reality. this is the leading edge. some would argue, i might, of an unraveling of our culture and perhaps our ability to plan for the future as a species. >> so you are suggesting people can select their gender, they could select their race, they could select their age. how do we get to this place?

4:05 am
contested convention in july for the republicans. >> but will their plan actually work? >> fox news international correspondent and our friend john roberts is live from pennsylvania with all the details. good morning to you, john. >> reporter: ainsley, brian, steve, good morning to you. moments like this i think it's appropriate to quote that quite political sage bugs bunny who once upon a time said of course you know, this means war, and war it is now between trump, cruz and kasich. it was very carefully timed. ted cruz had barely finished up with the fox news town hall last night when his manager tweeted to ensure that we nominate a republican who can unify the party and win in november, our campaign will focus its time and resources in indiana and kasich to compe in oregon and new mexico, and we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead. it took barely enough time to hit the send button before the kasich campaign jumped on board. here's what kasich said about
4:06 am
the idea generally during the town hall. listen. >> we're going to an open convention. i have been saying it for two months. people were saying he doesn't know what he's talking about. well, turns out i'm right. and we're going to go there, and i'll tell you what people are going to think about. the delegates are going to think about who can win in the fall. >> of course, this provoked a sharp response from donald trump, as you can imagine. he tweeted out a couple of times and then the campaign put out an official statement, quote, collusion is often illegal in many other industries, and yet these two washington insiders have had to revert to collusion in order to stay alive. they are mathematically dead and this act only shows as puppets of donors and special interests how weak their campaigns are. immediately kasich canceled a couple events in indiana to focus on oregon and new mexico. and now ted cruz is raising the idea and he will campaign hard on this between now and may 3rd the indiana primary of having a debate with donald trump in indiana. here's what he said in eva evansville last night. >> you know, donald seems
4:07 am
obsessed with telling us what big hands he has. well, maybe he could demonstrate those hands by coming and showing up at a debate! >> reporter: of course, donald trump said there's no more debates to be. he doesn't want any involvement in those. he does have an event this afternoon at westchester university. it's a controlial one. a lot of students didn't want him here, but the university president in a video message yesterday said in the spirit of political free speech and because george bush and barack obama both appeared here, that the trump event will go ahead today. >> all right. john roberts live in west chester, pennsylvania. he was talking about mr. trump doing some tweeting. governor huckabee said this. "cruz, kasich join forced to stop trump. i wish they wanted to stop hillary as much as they did the republican who is beating both of them." >> so what do you think about that? send us your e-mails to friends@foxnews.com. we'll read those and maybe share
4:08 am
some of them on the show with you. >> that's right. meanwhile, let's bring in journalist and host of "full measure," sheryl at kikisson. good morning. >> good morning. >> i know your program yesterday was talking about the saudis. in particular we wanted to pick your brain regarding the 28 pages of secret stuff from the official congressional inquiry on what happened on 9/11. sounds like they may release part of it. what do you know about what's in it? >> those who have seen it on both sides, democrats and republicans who have been allowed to view it, say that it gives very specific information about alleged support high-ranking saudi officials provided to 9/11 hijackers, who housed them, where they sayed, who paid for money, how funds were transferred. so this sort of a direct connection would be something, of course, very controversial if, indeed, the saudis deny but if indeed they did provide material support for the hijackers. >> now, the saudis aren't necessarily against the release of the 28 pages, is that correct? >> they say that although,
4:09 am
again, members of both parties on both sides say it's because it doesn't matter whether it's released or not. they say they don't mind that it's released but they probably don't want them released much as they don't want this congressional bill going through congress right now that would allow victims to sue them if found culpable. they have said they don't want that passed. >> there are some people that say they think that information should be classified, that the public shouldn't know everything because it might protect people and keep people safe. but then there's the flip side of it. if our country is trying to protect another country and a relationship with another country in hiding something, then we do have the right to know. are you hearing at all what might be in these reports? >> i think that you could go through the 28 pages -- it's been two years that the president says his director of national intelligence has gone through 28 pages. so there's clearly something -- >> it must be small type. >> right, little, tiny print. but i think you could release parts of them. this is probably what they'll do. they'll release redacted sections of the 28 pages with
4:10 am
sensitive stuff. >> yeah, the report in -- i think the "daily mail" of london says there was a certificate there that one of the guys was from saudi arabia with links to the ambassador that took flight lessons, was able to fly, and he has since become a bombmaker, was arrested in pakistan, and is now at gitmo. that's supposedly the guy that links it all together. >> well, this is the argument that democrats and republicans have made who want them released. it's been 15 years. and material that was sensitive initially, those who read them, say is not so sensitive now and that we own this information, by the way. it doesn't mean we should know everything that goes on, but we basically own the pages. and members of congress were allowed to see them with the right clearance and a lot of people think we should be, too. >> so let's talk about something else you know a lot about, and that is benghazi. of course, four brave americans died that night in 2001 on september the 11th. over at newsmax tv, steve mallsberg got an interview with a name of liddy denear. apparently she was engaged to
4:11 am
chris stevens back in 1995. they were never married. but now she's working on a documentary called "a voice for ambassador chris stevens." steve mallsberg asked her about hillary clinton, and she had this to say over on newsmax. listen. >> i think she should have done a better job for security and not ignore his request. and if he was a friend, as she said, he was a friend, then if she was a friend, you wouldn't let a friend down. >> one thing about the e-mail controversy that i do wonder, i think people say hillary clinton and ambassador stevens were friends. did he have her e-mail address? so he is making pleas for better security. did he know that she is operating on a private server and not necessarily reached through a government e-mail that he would have the address of? did he ever try to reach out to her directly and personally even though he probably assumed she was reading these memos he was sending about security?
4:12 am
i've kind of wondered what contact they had in light of her e-mail arrangement. >> keep in mind, too, this is what hillary clinton -- the e-mails they're looking at now that could get her in a lot of trouble are ones that she handed over. there's a whole bunch of e-mails that were deleted. >> yeah, you're sort of relying on the person who may have allegedly done something improper or wrong to be the keeper of the evidence against the person. and that's what happens governmentwide when in repeat years governments have been accused of wrongdoing whether it's the irs or something else. then you rely on the government itself to be the policeman that turns over the evidence and then prosecutes itself or, you know, finds information. >> that's a great point, though, to think that maybe if chris stevens had it or didn't have it, how tight could they have been? number two, it was there and she ignored it. >> like a lot of things, they say just because her name was on information that came to the state department doesn't mean that she read it or signed it. they've used that excuse with several different incidents just like "fast & furious."
4:13 am
it doesn't mean he read them. that's what it's supposed to mean. but you do wonder with all that mail coming in, in a desperate situation, those who were there say could he have reached out to her in a more personal way? >> maybe that's what she was trying to cover up. thank you, sharyl. >> go to your facebook page. >> or fullmeasure.news. everything's there. >> all right. thank you very much. coming up straight ahead, we change gears, a health warning from the cdc about illegal children and what they're bringing into this country. you've got to hear this. and hbo is coming under fire for its movie about clarence thomas's confirmation. our next guest covered the hearings. why he says hbo is trying to rewrite history. look like this. feel like this. look like this. feel like this. with dreamwalk insoles, turn shoes that can be a pain

hbo is under fire for its portrayal of the hearings surrounding justice clarence thomas's confirmation. look at this. >> during the fall of 1982, judge thomas began to use work situations to discuss sex.
4:18 am
i could not keep silent. >> i deny every allegation against me today. this is a circus, national disgrace. >> critics of the program "confirmation" say it edits history to favor anita hill, the woman who accused justice thomas of sexual harassment. he was, of course, confirmed. one of those critics is stuart taylor. he covered the 1991 hearings and he's a fellow senior with the brookings institute. good morning to you, stuart. >> good morning. nice to be with you. >> good to have you as well. a lot of people remember because they watched it on tv. joe biden was presiding. if you didn't know that and you just watched the hbo show, it makes it look like anita hill good, clarence thomas, bad. >> that's right. that's the way they slant it. that's the way they give a misleading account. the evidence is very ambiguous and there were reasons to doubt anita hill's credibility. there are things she said that turned out not to be true. the movie carefully airbrushes
4:19 am
all of those things out so that she looks like a truth-telling heroine when, in fact, her credibility is suspect. >> in the show, they don't mention that anita hill denied five times in sworn testimony eing told by a democratic staffer that she may be able to force mr. thomas to withdraw without being publicly identified. and then it wasn't until much later, but they left that out of the show. why would they do that? >> i think they did it because it cast doubt on they are credibility. in fact, at the time senator arlen specter who was cross-examining her said she had committed flat-out perjury and then had saved herself because if you correct yourself soon after you lie, then it's not perjury. but i think they left it out because it doesn't make her look so good. and they left out other things that don't make her look so good. for example, she embellished what she had originally told the fbi in her testimony, and then
4:20 am
when asked, why did you do that? she said, well, the fbi agents told me that i didn't have to talk about anything that was embarrassing, too embarrassing. both fbi agents flatly contradicted her. and there are those and other reasons to doubt her credibility, and especially the fact that nobody but anita hill has ever accused clarence thomas of behavior as gross as the behavior she alleged. >> that's right. well, if people watch hbo and see "confirmation," they've got to keep that in mind. it does leave a bunch of stuff out. stuart taylor, author and journalist who covered the anita hill hearings now at the brookings institute, stuart, thank you very much for joining us live. >> thanks. appreciate it. bye-bye. >> bye-bye. what do you think about that? let us know, friends@foxnews.com. meanwhile, police have a message for parents. you're the problem. >> parents, please stop telling your children that we haul them off to jail if they are bad. >> the message every parent

4:25 am
was turned upside down by heroin addictions. he tells his story in his new book, it's called "sheer madness: from federal prosecutor to federal prison." and then we have kenny robinson who was a drug dealer whose addictions stem from a troubled childhood. they join us now. they have been rehabbed, gone through rehabilitation, they're reunited here in our studio. thank you gentlemen for being with us. >> thank you for having us. >> first, i'm so proud of you to be able to go through what you've gone through and then help others deal with their addiction problems. tell us, heroin addictions? >> for me, it started with prescription drug abuse, a back injury in the marines. i could have treated it with motrin, but i chose to treat it with painkillers. >> which a lot of people are going through. >> it's an epidemic, and we know that. and i travel the country talking to different groups about it. when the pills ran out, i turned to heroin because the withdrawals from -- >> but you ended up in prison. >> i ended up in prison. and you know, it was a separate

kind of issue. i robbed a bunch of banks. you know, i'm not proud of it. i wrote a book about it. >> right. >> but the program i was in in prison and where i met kenny -- >> life connections. >> -- life connections program, brought us together. and where normally the races within the prison system are isolated, this program brought us together. and i think we're better off for it. >> all right. and president bush started this program. how did this program change your life, kenny? >> well, just like andrew just noted, the race relations on the inside is just like it is on the outside. you don't normally communicate or associate with anybody outside of your race. but this particular program, being that it's faith based, houses all of us together in this program, an 18-month-long program. so what it does is forces guys like myself and andrew to dialogue, share our stories, and then find some common ground.
4:27 am
we're here today. >> so it's not just a bible study once a week. you actually lived together. >> yeah, 18 months. i mean, we ate together. we walked the yard together. we programmed together. you know, maybe some certain assumptions that i grew up with about other races -- >> right. >> -- it enabled me to recognize that yes, sure, there's differences culturally, but there's more that we have in common. >> right, right. now, kenny, we often hear everyone saying take god out of our schools, take god out of our prisons, take god out of government. but here's a great example of how god and faith changed your life and is keeping you out of prison now. what does that mean to you? >> that means a lot to me. and you're correct, we do have to keep god in our prisons, in our schools and all walks of life. i don't know if president bush knew what the outcome of this program would have been, but we
4:28 am
are the proof that it's universal because you have a guy like andrew mckenna was a former federal prosecutor, then you have a guy like me that grew up on the streets, and both of us have been able to get out through this program and change our life. so it's not like that program just works with people from the streets or people from white-collar crimes. it's universal and it works and helps everybody. >> that's wonderful. all right, andrew, for people watching that are struggling with addiction, there are a lot of people, like you said, it's an epidemic, what's your message to them? >> my message is that there's hope, and there are different programs out there that you can avail yourself of. addiction campuses, america is one in particular, which takes the approach that one size does not fit all. and they're a great organization. i just think that there's hope, but you have to avail yourself of that, the help, because it's out there. and people love you. people want to support you. and people want to help you get

good morning to you. it is monday. it's april 25th, 2016. i'm ainsley earhardt. call it a complain alliance. ahead of five big primaries tomorrow. bret baier is live with the reaction and the fallout. and a new phase in the fight against isis. president obama announced early this morning a new plan to send more american troops overseas. but it's only 250. is that enough to destroy the terrorists once and for all? we're wondering. we're going to talk to bret baier about that. we've got to pretend to wonder. and it's never a good idea to let the internet name your expensive item like this multimillion-dollar boat. >> oh, no. >> boaty mcboatface. okay. so who thought it was a good
5:00 am
idea? to let the internet name this school? mornings are better with friends, i know that for sure. >> boaty mcboatface. that started as a joke. somebody from the bbc. the next thing you know, all these people are writing in, yeah, let's name it boaty mcboatface. >> what are you going to name the school? >> some are funny, some not so funny. >> months ago they were talking about trying to stop donald trump. and they weren't able to get on the same page, republicans. but now are they beginning to do that? >> that's right. we're going to talk to bret baier about that joining us from our nation's capital. when we started the program this morning, the president of the united states was talking in germany. he was at the world's largest trade fair, and it was announced that he's going to send 250 special operator troops to fight isis, bringing our total to 300.
5:01 am
>> in syria. >> in syria. that seems like a really low number. >> well, it does. special forces obviously count for a lot more because they're working with local forces, and they're trying to train and spot targets, that sort of thing. they have seen, according to the administration, some success on the ground with that. and he's upping the ante inside syria. but you're right. the criticism is it's too little, too late. and, you know, this is kind of an interesting move to put 250 more in. this president is -- does not want to put any more troops, if he can avoid it, into either syria or iraq. he now has 4,000 troops in iraq. and some new apache helicopters heading that way. you're almost getting to the point where you're going to get up to a number that commanders really wanted after the status of forces deal was kind of ripped up at the end of the iraq -- the iraq situation and all the troops came home. >> it's just unbelievable, too,
5:02 am
because they aren't even allowed to fight. they're combining with rebels. who are the rebels? what are they supposed to be doing? do they see rebels ever fight isis, or are they fighting assad? so nothing's been answered. >> it's a mess. you don't know who they are. you have russian troops still on the ground in syria. you have president bashar al assad still very active against any anti-assad forces. and then you have isis. and all of these terrorists that it's kind of a, you know, just a storm of problem in syria. >> let's talk politics. a lot of elections coming up tomorrow. we've got five primaries tomorrow. now you have cruz and kasich. they came out last night, and they're saying they're going to team up, this coordinated effort to deny donald trump the nomination. kasich saying he's going to do well indiana. he's got that state. cruz said i'm going to let you take that state, but i've got oregon and new mexico. what do you make of this? >> well, cruz is the one in indiana that's poised to do better.
5:03 am
and kasich, the cruz people are clearing the way, they say, for kasich in new mexico and oregon. and listen, this could be too little, too late. they are obviously looking at the numbers and seeing that donald trump is adding up. not just the numbers but it's the momentum. and you're going to have these five states tomorrow, the acela primaries, if you will, in the northeast, largely, and it is going to be probably a donald trump night. and that momentum, i think they're worried about. so you saw it with marco rubio and john kasich. they tried to do something like this, at least rubio did in ohio and florida. and it worked horribly. so i don't know if it's going to work this time either. >> well, donald trump has been tweeting. he just tweeted out at 7:59 this morning regarding this collusion. shows how weak and separate lyin' ted is when he has to team up with a guy who openly can't stand him, and has only 1 win and 38 losses. three minutes earlier he tweeted
5:04 am
out "lyin' ted cruz and kasich have to team up. it shows weakness. i'm checking our e-mail machine, bret, and there are a number of people who feel that the fact that they have teamed up, neither one of them can mathematically get on the first ballot. it's going to backfire because it looks to people like these party insiders are getting together behind the scenes to try to rig the system. >> yeah. and listen, the system is set up like this, and it's a delegate system, and they are playing for the delegates to get to cleveland. the flip side of that is, listen, there is also a big part of the party that is not ready for donald trump. and while it may b be #eventuallytrump according to some on twitter, there's a big chunk of the vote that is not donald trump, and they are hoping that it coalesces behind one of them. >> because, look, i think in the last poll, governor kasich got 16 percentage points. i mean, the theory is that cruz
5:05 am
is going by is i'm going to get that 16, and i will beat him in indiana. and the theory is in oregon, they're going to get whatever cruz has. he's going to combine with kasich, and they're going to beat trump there because they always believe a one on one is where donald trump is vulnerable. we're finally going to get a test of that theory. >> the problem is is that some john kasich voters, their second choice is donald trump. >> yeah. >> and some ted cruz voters. it's the same way. so it's not cut along those lines, and we'll see how it plays out. tomorrow, you know, is poised to be a donald trump night. >> all right. meanwhile, let's talk about the state that is right there bordering where you're at, the commonwealth of virginia. terry mcauliffe reversed a law in the books that had been there about 150 years. what he has done is all of these convicted felons who have done their time, they are now able to vote. well, yesterday he was over on one of the abc chat shows, and he was asked by george stephanopoulos, you know,
5:06 am
republicans are complaining about this. you're just bringing in 200,000 new democratic voters. here's what the governor had to say. >> the next natural step after meeting these folks and talking to them is everybody ought to have a second chance. second chances are back in society. they are living in our communities. they have jobs. they're paying taxes. why don't we possibly want them to vote? why are we putting walls up? we have elections every year in virginia. and if i were to do this for political reasons, i would have done it last year. >> is he doing it for political reasons? >> well, listen. the timing -- any time you do something like this, virginia's setting up to be a swing state eventually -- >> he's a longtime family friend of the clintons. hello. >> yeah, exactly. 206,000 votes matter. but, you know, he's making the civil rights case of second chances. and these people have served their time and done their probation. republicans are saying this. they said blanket restoration
5:07 am
without regard to the nature of crimes committed doesn't speak of mercy. it speaks of political opportunism. so i think you're going to see this battle back and forth. but it's done. it's an exec tough order. and unless it's challenged in court, this is going forward. >> bret, we're going to see you tonight at 6:00 eastern on "special report," is that okay? >> sounds good. >> then you're coming to new york to do the coverage? >> i am. i'll be there tonight and all day tomorrow. >> thank you, bret. >> we'll get the hide-a-bed ready. >> every vote does matter. barack obama lost by 100,000 votes. if you have 206,000 convicted felons that are able to vote now, that could mean a win for one of the candidates where it might not have been that way. >> restore their gun rights, too, give them a second chance. >> right. i understand forgiving everyone and giving someone a second chance, but there are rules in place. you know, you take away something from someone who's gone to prison. if they're a convicted felon, they don't have the right to vote, sorry. >> it's a law that's been on the books for 150 years until now. seven minutes after the top
5:08 am

later that night police say an 18-year-old was killed in retaliation during a drive-by. police say that both crimes are likely gang related. no arrests have been made. and did saudi arabia have a hand in the 9/11 terror attacks? the saudi government says no, and now they want the white house to release the so-called 28 pages of congress's 9/11 reports. >> it's been 15 years. and material in it that was sensitive initially, those who read them say is not so sensitive now and that we own this information, by the way. it doesn't mean we should know everything that goes on, but we basically own the pages, and members of congress are allowed to see them with the right clearance, and a lot of people think we should, too. >> the saudis say they want all 28 pages released to clear them of wrongdoing. the white house talking about whether or not it will declassify at least a portion of it over the next several weeks. here's a nice story to bring you right now. a group of ohio police officers -- well, there's a tragedy and then the nice part.

"officers, your bill is on me today. i can't imagine the day that all of you have had, let alone what you go through every day. i hope your days get better. so much respect." well, earlier on our show, one of those police officers met that waitress for the first time. here it is. >> thank you for doing what you do every day and, you know, putting your life on the line to protect everyone. >> thank you. it means a lot. >> how sweet. jessica says you can't put a dollar amount on making somebody happy. such a nice thing to do and so well appreciated. >> absolutely. and i think her company, red robin, thanked her for doing that. >> oh, did they? wonderful. >> the big question is, did they give her $123 to make up for the

5:24 am
character. and she found a way to channel her wayward character into something substantive. she literally helped the allies win the war. she was involved in many significant missions that helped the invasion of north africa, the enigma machine. and the way that she did this was using the bedroom as her operational battlefield. >> wow. >> the cia, when i was up there, told me one of the things they tell their new agents is the last person to whom you say good night is the most dangerous. well, betty was the personification of that warning, the way she used the bedroom. >> and that's why the title is "the last good night." >> exactly. >> how was she -- what did her parents think about her? because back then especially, i mean, your reputation means so much now, but especially then. i mean, you couldn't use your sexuality to woo men and to get answers and to get into the lives of our enemies. >> well, betty could use her sexuality. she rebelled against her parents. and that was that she was living a life that was really leading
5:25 am
her to one tragedy, debacle after another. she was a very careless person. and yet she found a way to channel this. the only person she was really loyal to forever was her spymasters to the u.s. government. and she was able to accomplish things that helped america win the war. >> you used to work for "the new york times." how many books have you written? >> this is my 14th. >> so you wanted to write about a woman. >> exactly. i figured at this stage in my life, perhaps i could begin to understand what make women tick. i have two daughters in their 20s and one ex-wife. i paid my dues, not to mention alimony and tuition, so i thought i could maybe begin to do this. and then when i discovered at cambridge university that they had betty's archives, all the papers is and memoirs, and i was able to write with authority what she was thinking and doing, i would get the inside story not only on her missions but also on her amorous adventures. i thought, well, this is a book
5:26 am
that i could write as a spy thriller and also as a psychological detective story to show how she had made this journey from a debutante to a spy. >> wow, very fascinating. thank you so much. i wish you all the best. writing on "the blonde bond." she had that written on her obituary. well, guess what scandal just came back? >> i departmeid not have sexual relations with that woman. ms. lewinsky. >> yep. what bernie sanders is now saying about monica lewinsky this morning. and it's never a good idea to let the internet name your expensive item like this multimillion-dollar boat. they name it had boaty mcboatface. so who thought it was a good idea to let the internet name this school? ♪ you better get to school on time ♪ i take these out...

little guys came back at the end and said, "thank you." >> them's some good manners. >> steals the show. all right. here's something. so did you notice there's going to be a big election coming up in november? >> really? >> bernie sanders would like to be the next president of the united states. i don't know that he said thank you to rosario dawson, the famous actress, after she took a shot at the clintons. and the way she did it was she actually brought up a scandal the clintons would like to run away from as quickly as possible. here she is, and then you're going to hear from bernie. >> we are really fending for ourselves right now. we are literally under attack for not just supporting the other candidate. now, i'm with monica lewinsky with this. bullying is bad. she's actually dedicated her life now to talking about that. and now as a campaign strategy,
5:32 am
we are being bullied. and somehow that is okay and not being talked about with the richness that it needs to. >> rosario is a great and she's done a great job for us. and she's been a passionate fighter to see that we increase the voter turnout. our job right now is to contrast our views compared to secretary clinton. that's what a campaign is about. what i will be doing in this campaign is an issue-oriented way. not by personal attacks. >> right. >> but by contrasting our view to secretary clinton's. >> he did his best to avoid talking about it. the clinton campaign did come out and said they would absolutely not address anything that she had to say. >> right. they don't want to bring it up either. >> rosario saying that monica lewinsky was bullied by the clintons. but what makes me laugh about this is that most of the bernie supporters are in their 20s. they're probably, like, who is monica lewinsky? because this happened in 1998. they were, like, 3. >> and those young voters can
5:33 am
google it. once they read about it, it's, like, really? i didn't know the president -- >> her reaction when she said the name monica lewinsky, i thought the reaction would be a lot different. >> you know what the big picture is? and guys, i'm sure you can appreciate this, there's a lot of pressure on the sanders people to rally behind hillary clinton, and they are not ready to give up hope yet. and he says i'm going to june. i'm going to california. and by the way, i'm winning in california. but he's supposed to have a bad night tomorrow night. but he does not seem ready to acquiesce. >> so anyway, he got some support -- and great that she would bring that up because that gave us something to talk about but also one of the other surrogates was danny glover who made a couple of mistakes out on the stump, got some facts mixed up. >> right, it happens. >> but he's a great actor. 27 minutes before the top of the hour. >> maybe they should stick to acting. >> because danny glover's a big fan of fidel castro. he's a huge fan. >> that was his mistake. >> good morning, everybody.

5:41 am
to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®, including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are headache, nausea,
5:42 am
diarrhea, and vomiting. side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza®. it's covered by most health plans. whe gets a ready for you alert the second his room is ready. so you know what he gives? i'll give you everything i've got and then some. he gives a hundred and ten percent! i'm confident this 10% can boost your market share. feel me lois? i'm feeling you. boom! look at that pie chart. the ready for you alert, only at laquinta.com. you. hot sauce and science crossing paths to create 1032. ge is teaming up with its condiment creator to make a hot sauce with a higher amount of

5:44 am
good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. that's what i do, spend every morning reading donald trump's tweets just like the rest of america. you know, this campaign was rancorous enough already, but it's likely to erupt in open warfare now that cruz and kasich are openly teaming up to stop donald trump, particularly in the state of indiana. cruz's campaign manager tweeting out last night or sending out a message saying, quote, to ensure that we nominate a republican who can unify the party and win in november. we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead. well, ted cruz waited until after his appearance on the fox news town hall last night to release the news. he did talk about the reasons for the partnership. >> what is good for the gop is to nominate a candidate who can win and who actually has a real substantive agenda. >> not surprisingly, donald trump was completely incensed about it. he was tweeting out last night, his campaign released a statement and still tweeting
5:45 am
about it this morning saying, quote, lyin' ted and kasich have to team up collusion in a two-on-one. shows weakness. shows how weak and desperate ted is when he has to keep up with a guy who openly can't stand him and is only 1 win and 38 losses. kasich will focus on oregon and new mexico telling our town hall last night that this is all going to be settled in july. >> we're going to an open convention. i have been saying it for two months. people were saying he doesn't know what he's talking about. well, turns out i'm right. and we're going to go there and i'll tell you what people are going to think about. the delegates are going to think about who can win in the fall. >> reporter: by some analysis if donald trump wins big, as expected tomorrow, and also wins indiana, that will be it. it will basically be over. he will be able to reach a majority of delegates before the convention. so cruz and kasich's real only option to stop him, guys, is
5:46 am
next week in indiana. that one will be, as they say, for all the marbles. >> indeed. all right, thank you very much, john roberts. he's got all of his marbles. looking at the e-mail machine, what do you think about this? val typed this out. "i am one who will not vote if it is trump versus clinton. applaud cruz and kasich to attempting to nominate a republican for the party. i know you won't air this as you are only airing pro-trump stuff. so sad." we have been accused of being in the tank for trump, in the tank for cruz. >> rubio. >> in the tank for rubio, kasich. we should also point out we invite ted cruz -- >> every day. >> -- every day to be on. same thing with john kasich. and they are busy. and then there are others that say things -- and then a number of people think it's going to backfire. can't really tell right now. 50/50. >> mitt romney said last week unless one of them gets out, donald trump's going to get the nomination. now we're getting the sense of
5:47 am
basically one of them getting out. we'll see if this teheory is going to prove correct. one school choir was silenced down at the september 11th memorial. it is time for the encore. that choir is going to perform for us coming up next. >> they're waving. let me check in with martha after that great town hall last night. you're back in action today, martha. great job. >> thank you. i can tell you where cruz and kasich were last night. other than that i can't account for it. big news today as cruz and kasich join forces, as you were just talking about, to try to shut down donald trump. donald fires up a blistering statement in response. and charles koch says that hillary might be better than some of the existing gop candidates. we're going to dig in. we'll show you the context on all of that. and the white house set to release some but not all of the saudi pages. k.t. joins us coming up and bill and i see you at the top of the hour. i take these out...
