tv   Red Eye With Tom Shillue  FOX News  September 22, 2016 12:00am-1:01am PDT

12:00 am
compelling and apply it to monday's debate. again, thanks for watching us tonight. i'm bill o'reilly reporting from l.a. please remember the spin stops here because we're definitely looking out for imorng. this is a fox news alert. i'm jackie ibanez. a second night of violent protest in charlotte, north carolina and now the city is under a state of emergency. it started as a peaceful vigil for a black man shot to death on tuesday during a police stop. but then chaos broke out at one point an estimated 800 protesters took to the streets and gunfire broke out and windows smashed, stores were looted. you can see some of the video right there. cops in riot gear responded with a barrage of teargas and rubber bullets among many things. when it was over one person was on life support and said to be on life support still. police tell us he was shot by another civilian. four officers were also hurt, though their injuries are not hurt.
12:01 am
the extent of the violence prompted north carolina's governor to declare a state of emergency. that new orleans the national guard will be helping until civil order has been restored. investigators are looking into the deadly shooting of 43-year-old keith lamont scott. police say he was armed when they tried to question him as he sat in his car. his family insists he was inarmed and reading a book waiting for his son to get eff the school bus. we are joined live in charlotte and it is now 3:00, almost seven hours after these riots or protests if you would like to call them started for the second night. leyland, what can you tell us this morning? >> reporter: jackie, to your point there was two events. there was a peaceful protest about the killing of keith scott and then there was a violent riot that took to the streets of downtown and still at 3:00 a.m. most of the
12:02 am
rioters are gone, but there are dozens of heavily armed not only charlotte police, but new jersey state troopers out here who have finally been able to restore calm. many will say the police response was a little too little and a little too late. you can see one of the many stores that was looted. mostly here they were after the cigarettes and the red bull. the protesters certainly got a lot. there is no idea who owns this store and it was quite literally shattered as the glass is here. a number of arrests finally took place after the teargas sent most of them home. they arrested a number of the agitators. the big concern is that this is the first time one of the anti-police protests has taken to the streets of a downtown in a major city. this can have major effects on charlotte and its economy. so much of the economy is peaced on tourists and conventions. bank of america has told its
12:03 am
employees who work down here in this downtown arena area to not even come to workful right down there is where the basketball team plays and those kind of things. we have restaurants here. right here is the ritz-carlton hotel that the protesters tried to storm into and smashed some of the cars in the valet. it is very rare. the last time i saw a teargas canister in front of the ritz-carlton hotel was back sometime in egypt. the question going forward is what is going to happen over the weekend? there have been enough steam let off in charlotte for things to return to normal. and also what affect will the national guard have as it comes in tomorrow? in cases like this you cannot forget the politics of this. this is a swing state. we are less than 50 days to a presidential election. there is a lot of political overtones to the response here. the police chief here who is african-american has been
12:04 am
strong in defending his officer in the shooting of keith scott saying this narrative that is out on social media that the protesters will tell you that keith scott had a book and sitting in his car. he said that is absolutely not true. all of their evidence and all of their witness accounts point to the fact that keith scott had a gun with him. he said the voiceless majority needs to stand up and be heard. today it seemed as though police were caught off guard by this peaceful protest turning into a violent riot. it doesn't seem like they will eu lou themselves to be -- will allow themselves to be caught off guard again tomorrow. as for things down in charlotte, it is quiet at 3:00 a.m. it will be quiet through the night. this area will be flooded with law enforcement by tomorrow. 18 hours tomorrow and one can see what will happen.
12:05 am
there is a carolina panthers game, the football team, that stadium is only about a mile in that direction. that could be a big draw for protesters and for the fear of violence compounded by all of the national tv coverage that will be here for the game, jackie. >> leyland, you talk about arrests, any specific number on how many arrests tonight? >> we haven't got a specific number for police. you had the protest from 7:00 to 8:00 and there were kids out and there was singing. from 8 to 8:30 you got a different crowd of what you could call agitators. that's when we had the shooting about 8:30 and 8:45. you get a sense of the battle lines coming out into the street here to give you a sense. right there is the omni
12:06 am
hotel. right there is where the man was shot. that's the main street called college street where you had this battle between the protesters or rioters and then also the police. you had rocks thrown and bottles thrown. they responded with teargas. and then as things continued throughout the night, 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, by 12:00, 12:30 is when people started to put people into the flex cups. they grabbed people who thought were causing too many of the problems and that's what we were seeing whether it is in ferguson or baltimore. the police let everybody blow off steam and let the numbers dwindle and then start arresting people. the other issue police face and where police intelligence will come into play is what will happen when the outside agitators, the professional protesters and anarchists come to town and that will happen the next couple days and we will see the police intelligence units try to pull those people off the streets
12:07 am
before they have a chance to insight the violence we saw today. >> leyland, it is important to know that that individual who was shot tonight by another civilian. that person is thought to be on life support at 3:00 this morning. leyland, thank you so much for your reporting from the scene. now back to "special report" which is already in progress. >> command killed by a police officer and this time in north carolina leads to violent protest in charlotte. as everyone from the presidential candidates weighing in. >> these tragic incidents coming so close together have once again left americans with feelings of sorrow and with feelings of anger and feelings of uncertainty. they have once again highlighted in the most vivid and painful terms the real divisions that persist in this nation between law enforcement and communities of color. >> while divisions remain
12:08 am
police in charlotte are adamant that the tuesday shooting by a black police officer was justified. of course, now the story from charlotte tonight. nt versions of the fatal confrontation that sparked a long night of sometimes violent protests. police officers say they were serving a warrant at an apartment complex when they noticed a man unrelated to their case. 43-year-old keith lamont scott. >> mr. scott exited his vehicle armed with a handgun. as the officers continued to yell at him to drop it. he stepped out, posing a threat to the officers and officer vincent subsequently fired his weapon striking the subject. >> reporter: the police chief said his officers gave scott multiple clear instructions to drop the weapon. police investigates say they found a gun at the scene. some family and friends insist scott was unarmed and simply reading a book waiting in his
12:09 am
car for his son to come home from school. >> you kill us like we just pawned on your chess game, like we don't have lives out here, like our lives don't matter. yes, our lives matter. but only black people are being targeted. >> reporter: the chief called for calm while taking issue with the versions of events that a woman claim doing be scott's daughter posted on facebook. >> it's time to change the narrative. i can tell you from the facts that the story is a little bit different as to how it has been portrayed so far, especially through social media. >> reporter: protest organizers say it fits a pattern of police targeting african-americans, even though the officer named in the charlotte shooting is also black. >> it don't matter whether black or white, he was in blue. >> reporter: overnight protests started out peacefully but soon escalated with some protests attempting to break into this walmart shutting down interstate 85 and inflicting injuries or
12:10 am
more than a dozen police officers. >> we understand that there may be continuing protests this evening. and i want to emphasize that i have spoken with many community and faith leaders already. we are calling for peace. we are calling for calm. we are calling for dialogue. >> reporter: protest organizers are also calling on demonstrators to remain peaceful. they plan to hold a rally in about an hour from now here in marshal park which is near the local police headquarters. >> thank you. getting word from the white house that president bema cak o called the mayors of tulsa and charlotte. 200 people gathered in tulsa, oklaho oklahoma, to protest the shooting death of terrence crutcher. dash cam video captured him with his hands in the air shortly before he was shot by officer betty shelby friday. police say investigators found the drug pcp in his vehicle.
12:11 am
but officers have not said whether crutcher was using that drug that day. at the top of the show, we told you with less than seven weeks to go until the election and a few days to go before the first debate, new fox polls show donald trump has pulled ahead in three of the biggest battleground states this year, in nevada trump now leads hillary clinton by three points. in north carolina, a state where both campaigns have spent a lot of time recently, clinton now trails trump by five points. in ohio, the swingiest of swing states where governor john kasich refused to endorse the republican nominee, trump is polling at 42% compared to clinton's 37%. in all of these states, voters polled were pretty evenly split on what party they identify with. this is the party i.d. question. you may notice a lot of independent voters in all three states. donald trump now has some polls
12:12 am
to obviously brag about on campaign trail, matching others, as he tries to win over voters. trump was try doing that in ohio today. the plug wasn't without some awkward moments. >> reporter: invigorated by the latest polls, donald trump began his day with running mate mike pence and boxing promoter don king in cleveland in an event with inner city pastors for trump. darryl scott raised eyebrows invoking laws of the pre-civil rights era. >> the pastors some came from a long way. i don't want to put them in a jim crow section. separate but equal facilities. >> reporter: don king drew gasps as laughter when he used the n word to observe that for some, race defines african-americans

12:14 am
before ever, ever, ever. >> reporter: trump called charges from the left that he is a bigot proof of his popularity in an interview airing tonight. >> it's an interesting phenomenon. the word racist comes out. that means you are winning. that's the last chance. i don't think it's working. >> reporter: in a virginia downpour yesterday -- >> i will pick up the phone with this soggy arm and call the man and tell him how great you all are. >> reporter: on international policy, as the u.n. general assembly unfold eed the last fe days, trump seemed to side with russia. clinton did meet with porishenko. trump didn't rsvp. with 47 days left, the clinton campaign has outspent trump by a five to one margin. just in the last month of august, clinton was spending more than a half a million
12:15 am
dollars a day and still the race is a tossup. >> thank you. a poll out has hillary clinton leading nationally. but trump leads clinton in the poll on being honest and straightforward, 41% to 31%. hillary clinton is back out on campaign trail today after a day off prepping for the debate. according to aides, the democrat nominee is in florida where recent have her in a virtual tie with donald trump. jennifer griffin reports on the candidate's attempt to gain ground in the sunshine state. >> reporter: addressing a largely african-american community in orlando, florida, hillary clinton again weighed in on the recent police shootings. >> but we do know that we have two more names to add to a list of african-americans killed by police officers in these encounters. it's unbearable. it needs to become intolerable. >> reporter: she hoped to speak about her goal of an inclusive

12:17 am
surrogates to step forward and explain her positions. the campaign manager was pressed by the host of "morning joe." >> was she disappointed the president didn't act when the line was crossed? >> i think -- you would have to ask her about that question. >> we love you, but what are you here for if you can't answer basic questions? >> reporter: michelle obama during an appearance on a late night talk show made no mention of hillary clinton who she is supposed to be stumping for. said she had little sympathy for melania trump? >> do you have people that have to stand by the person running for president? >> no, not really. >> reporter: a new usa today analysis of super pac money found based on campaign finance reports that super pac money has passed the $1 billion mark for this race. most of that money, more than half of that money came from 62 individuals. this is a lot more super pac

12:23 am
kevin cork reports from white house on israel's response to the president's push for peace. >> obviously, there are some differences between us. >> reporter: for much of his eight years in office, this was a fair representation of president obama's relationship with benjamin netanyahu, cold, distant, even adversarial. marked by differences over the iran nuclear deal, u.s. policy in the region. that was a far cry whtoday when the two men praised each other. >> it fortifies the principal that you have stated md ti ed m, that israel should be able to protect itself. >> reporter: the deal is for $3.8 billion a year beginning with 2019. compared with $3.1 billion under the deal set to expire in 2018. $33 billion in foreign military

12:26 am
to secretary of state john kerry admitted that it may have emboldened the regime to become more aggressive and admit they had couldn't guarantee every dollar used in the pay outs to iran had been kept out of the hands of the terror groups that iran sponsors. >> that kind of money is going to buy a lot of dead westerners. i think that we ought to examine why the payment was made in that form. >> reporter: at the same hearing, a former aide to secretary of state kond leeza right said the payments did not amount to ransom and reflected a bipartisan approach. >> since 1979, each american president has sought to use economic leverage both penalties and incentives as a central component of the strategy for addressing the challenges posed by iran. >> reporter: kerry's top spokesman told fox news the iran deal is achieving its intended on tift, preventing the regime from obtaining nuclear weapons capability. >> we believe a middle east with all the problems it has is going
12:27 am
to be that much easier to deal with with an iran that cannot get and cannot use nuclear weapons. >> reporter: asked about speaker rya ryan's comment, admiral kirby told me minutes ago, we stand by the strength of the iran deal, our efforts to bring our citizens home and the pressure we will continue to apply to state sponsored of terrorism, unquote. >> the 9/11 bill that would enable families -- victim families to sue saudi arabia or countries that support terrorism is on the president's desk. any update? >> reporter: he has got until friday night at midnight to veto it. if he fails to act, the president will ensure it becomes law. white house signalled he intends to veto it. we expect a veto to go forward by friday. we heard from speaker ryan about that today saying he thinks the votes are there for the first override of a veto in mr. obama's tenure.
12:28 am
>> we will look into this tomorrow. thanks. the irs commissioner faced lawmakers today who want him fired. he admitted some of his previous testimony was not accurate. his testimony could be the deciding factor over whether to impeach the man over allegations he on strubstructed investigati. >> reporter: the house gop leadership agreed to today's impeachment hearing, knowing it stands almost no chance of being reported out of committee, of passing in the full house and even less chance of moving to the senate for trial. it put him on record. today he admitted the irs targeted politicmripolitical gr >> they were improper criteria to select organizations, applying for c-4 designation for further review. they were conservative

organizations. >> reporter: was it an act of malice or incompetence? one skeptic noticed that they expressed a political bias in work e-mails. >> i don't know if you read lois lerner's e-mails or not, but there's a palpable hostility that comes through in her work e-mails. >> reporter: another skeptic honed in after they placed a do not destroy order. >> one month after your top counselor learns miss learner's hard drive crashed, the secondary source -- the backup tapes are destroyed. we're supposed to believe that just is a coincidence? >> reporter: democrats took no part in the interrogation. one used the opportunity to take a dig at donald trump's son and his controversial skittles tweet. >> people on this side of the

aisle, we like that. every now and then -- sorry. i will get a bad skittle. but i don't ban them all. >> reporter: regardless what they decide next, one tea party conservative is still threatening to unilaterally introduce an impeachment resolution in the full house. >> it would be an unfortunate precedent to set. >> reporter: the targeting of conservatives had a profound affect. one american enterprise study found it slowed outreach enough to cut mit rt romney's rally, sufficient to keep obama in the white house for a second term. >> thank you. on this international day of peace, there's word that another air strike killed civilians in syria. russia says it will send a navy ship to syrian shores. there was little hope today as the u.n. said humanitarian aid will resume to syria.
12:31 am
>> reporter: it was a scene of carnage, a deadly attack on an aid convoy monday night in syria. u.s. officials blame russia saying two russian fighter jets were over the convoy just before it was bombed. russian officials contend the u.s. predator drone was flying over the area before the attack. the pentagon says the u.s. did not have any manned or unmanned aircraft in that area. so it goes, the blame game between super powers as the syrian cease-fire unravels yet again, with more reports of air strikes today killing at least 23 people. u.s. secretary of state john kerry told the u.n. security council that all warplanes over syria should be grounded to, quote, prevent syria from doing what it so often does in the past, to target civilians. >> how can people go sit at a table with a regime that bombs hospitals and drops chlorine gas
12:32 am
again and again and again and again and again and again? >> reporter: five people were killed in an air strike tuesday night on a medical triage point outside aleppo. it's unclear who was responsible. >> those who bomb them were cowards. accountability for crimes such as this is essential. >> reporter: some good news. the u.n. said humanitarian aid convoys will resume possibly as early as thursday. the finger pointing, insinuations and lack of accountability may didminish hoe for another cease-fire. >> translator: i am sure i don't have any proof. but i am sure that these kinds of coincidences require serious analysis and investigation. >> reporter: while diplomats scramble to save the cease-fire, russia announced today it is sending its only aircraft carrier to the coast of syria. this may add to the tension and
12:33 am
distrust between the u.s. and russia. countries that were supposed to be working together on the cease-fire no apart. >> thank you. for the sixth time this year, the federal reserve pushed off raising interest rates. the fed said today the case for raising rates from the hir stst lows had strengthed. the markets loved that news and responded in kind. the dow gained 163 points today. the s&p 500 rose 23. the nasdaq climbed 53. the race for the white house got turned upside down again. the panel weighs in on the poll shows donald trump besting hillary clinton in three key hillary clinton in three key battleground state.
12:34 am

12:35 am
12:38 am
a lot of people like to know how this breaks down. you look at the split in nevada and it is 40-40. north carolina is 40-39 and ohio is 39-41. a lot of people like to know that and thought we would put it up on the screen. here is another interesting thing. preferential vote preference. here is the certainty of the vote. here is the certainty of nevada. 93% for each. now let's look at north carolina. that is 95% for donald trump. this is fox poll 7. 90% for clinton supporters. and then fox pollen, ohio is the certainty of vote preference and afternoon -- 89% and 88%. trust me. they are great numbers. the senior editor of national public radio and the political
12:39 am
columnist. what do you take from these numbers? >> that he is moving up in some of these battleground states. he is echoing what we saw in national numbers. he meeds to win every one of those states you polled in plus florida and then one more if he wants to either win or tie in the electoral college. he is getting there, but still needs a couple more. he can't afford to lose those if he doesn't get additional wynns like new hampshire. >> we said the pass to get to 270 it easier. clearly he is on the 3406. >> definitely on the move. what is troubling is she has 2ku78 pped dash are ad dumped a lot of money, far more than he has in term of actual spending on ads and she is not able to take control of the
12:40 am
message and he is still the master of that. he is the master of taking control of the message, maybe doing ways that people cringe, but he is succeeding every time. that's why we see the polls close. >> jonah in nevada he is up among independents about 20 points and same in north carolina and same in ohio. >> he had a great two weeks and hillary had a terrible two weeks. he tends not to gain support. at the same time if i woulds on the trump campaign i would be excited about the numbers. >> in the four-way race it looks like 12% of the electorat. it does look like both of their votes are coming out of
12:41 am
hillary's side. they revert back to the vote. at the end of the dye -- at the end of the day it is trump's enthusiasm versus hillary's charm game will. >> she doesn't have a message. we saw it in the ad. what was that? i like children and i will fight for children. there has never been a message like that. she is basically a continuation of obama who is reasonably popular. ehe numbers were better when they came out a few weeks ago. she out spent trump an
12:42 am
unbelievable amount. it was probably five to one and leaves no impression. the most impressive was certain of your choice. they are both over 90%. >> all three are impressive. i just want you to know that. the first was most impressive. it is growing and impressive. it gets late early here she has been known for 30 years and she has been ubiquitous for 15 months. i am not sure what her advertising advantage. i think in the end the importance of these debates will exceed the importance of any debates and any race we have seen. >> he is out and about in the african-american communities and he said this about
12:43 am
black-american countries. >> rebuild our inner cities because our african-american communities are absolutely in the worst shape they have ever been in before, ever, ever, ever. today he was campaigning and went to a church with don king who raised eyebrows. the words he chose and a couple of jokes from the pastor, what about the out reach? is it having an affect? >> we don't see any signs in the polls it is having an affect. often times when they are trying to show is moderate voters. i am not decisive or racist. i am inclusive. >> don kim was barred by the rnc from showing up because he is a convicted felon.
12:44 am
he not only made a gaff and he used the n-word. the picture was of donald trump laughing and a couple of white people laughing. you can see one guy holding up the cell phone. >> he campaigned with hillary clinton and senator reid two years ago. >> that's right. i would say that is a bad choice also. the out reach irrelevant not -- reach not showing results. >> this is a way he is breaking the molds and the politics. it might not be a terrible thing. he was trying to be dangerous. >> and he succeeded. >> if kanye west had said that, i don't think people would be upset about that.
12:45 am
>> i don't know about that. is stirring up the after an american community and obviously we will see the president out much more. we are hearing two days a week from now until election. is that going to fire them up and can he pass the baton to her. >> i said for a longtime hillary clinton will have a difficult time recreating the obama coal rig. >> race and gender have different things in our culture. what they have going to have to do and not just the african-american voters, but they have to demonize trump even more will a lot of the stuff doesn't work because people priced it into trump and some people think it is all fun and games. i don't know if hillary clinton is a good messenger.
12:46 am
>> last word here. north carolina is unique and democrats see anmopening and there is the fill issue. there is a high number of african-american support them and there is a lot of controversy down there. >> the fact that she is slipping behind is ominous. all. money she placed on ads. itit is a delicate issue. politically, trump i think probably gets the advantage. we thought there would be an improvement but democrats were african-american in the white house. nonetheless you have to be care.
12:47 am
about that. it can go either way. i am not sure if it will fill the vote. i think it is the personal correction and here hillary is setting up a dynamic where trump is normal. he wins. >> you can be misled by the pack that trump has had a good 10 days rather than that -- better than have more momentum than a lot of people expected. >> the house speaker calling out the secretary of state.
12:48 am
12:49 am
12:50 am
12:51 am
>> what's say when the united states repeatedly bends over backwards to accommodate the world's number one state sponsor of terrorism? i don't just mean all of these concessions, side tells. i don't mean sending the secretary of state out to show for iran like he is the tehran chamber of commerce. i don't just mean paying ransom for hostages. we now know that the administration mislead the must be about the details of the arrangement with this iranian regime. >> house speaker paul ryan today calling out the administration. an administration that has had different things to say about the relationship with iran and this payment. >> iran released five americans who were unjustly detained on iranian soil and we solved a 35-year-old financial claim with the iranians in a way that saved the americans, potentiallyllion. >> there was no linkage between this settlement and the free's of americans. >> this wasn't some
12:52 am
nefarious deal. we do not pay ransom. we didn't here and we we won't in the future. >> it would have been foolish and prudently irresponsible for us not to try to maintain maximum leverage. so, if you're asking me was there a connection in that regard at the end game, i'm not going to deny that. >> all right, back with the panel. charles? >> how you can deny that withholding the payments until the hostages are released or in the air, whatever, the quid pro quo is a ransom. everybody knows it is. the administration is simply playing with words. the question is was it worth it? do we do that? but to deny it, i think, is simple my to undermine your whole position because they were trying to sell the iran deal and then you have to ask yourself was there anything in what they said was in the deal, the supposed obligations of the iranians that was true? what it turns out this is a deal that is self-deterring for us. the iranians are shooting
12:53 am
off rockets, incident continental missiles or medium range missiles that we know are illegal. everybody admits is illegal. and we ignore it and pretend and do nothing because we're afraid that if we act on any of this, the iranians will pull out of the nuclear deal. we will have given them the money, the legitimacy and destroy the sanctions and they will then have a free hand. that's why we do nothing. >> and a word from the u.n. is that the iranians are mad the u.s. isn't helping pressure europe to help pay off their bills. >> what would you expect when they have gotten everything they wanted out of the utes. of course, they are always going to expect more. but that clip from paul ryan, i mean, what a -- i mean, he really tore the bark off of john kerry. i mean, and the line about calling him the president of the tehran chamber of commerce. good grief. you know, we have always known. >> trumpian. >> honestly and i think it's effective and a good thing. we have always known that president obama has no strategy in the middle east
12:54 am
except to not offend anybody or in this case give tehran whatever they want. but, republicans have not done the job that they should do owning the issue and, you know, highlighting these things. and thank goodness, i mean paul ryan did a good job there. >> marah? >> i think you are going to hear about this monday night. >> at the debate? >> yeah. >> does it effect hillary clinton? she wasn't here when the deal finally went through. >> she had gone all in on the deal. the minute the iran deal was made, she was full throated for it. she has backed away from president obama's foreign policy moves. this is not one of them. she has embraced this. >> quickly, joanna, i want to turn to the fbi, the complaint they filed does not include against this rahami guy the bomber in new jersey and new york, does not include a reference to isis. and, yet, there is in his bloody journal writing about adnani who was the spokesperson who essentially said he was killed by the u.s. but he said that all of the isis operatives should stay at home and do exactly

what this guy did. yet, the fbi didn't mention isis. >> yeah, no, look, it's funny, i was talking to steve hayes about this before i came on. they did this plenty of other times where they try to down play connections, lone wolves, pacs of lone wolves and all these sorts of silly things. i understand it fits a political narrative that barack obama is wanting it sustain which is becoming increasingly unsustainable. we aren't having terror attacks. isis isn't a danger to us. more danger of falling in a bathtub than terrorism. always trying to down play it work place violence at fort hood. the more they do that, the more it reinforces another narrative which is that maybe it is actually islam that's the problem. if these guys aren't agents of isis and aren't at war with us and random muslims for whatever reason self-activate and declare war on us, that's completely contrary and really really dangerous to another narrative we have gotten out of this white house. >> which is the president
