tv Happening Now FOX News March 28, 2017 8:00am-9:01am PDT
our show to get an idea from republicans. at one of the things we heard from paul ryan, if i can switch to camera one now, their efforts and what they want to look forward to it as a front. they say that they've never been more optimistic about the future when it comes to repealing obamacare. one thing that speaker ryan wrapped up on with the press or that there are some roles that come to the senate to go back and forth between the house in the senate to get to the end goal that they want to. it's confusing for us, so we'll talk about it in a moment. one of the things i'm watching for is the reaction from the freedom caucus members. you heard from the leadership that there is a united front
coming from republicans, but i have yet to hears from some of the bigger voices. we're going to reach out to them and see if we can hear from them. where does the freedom caucus stand on this and do they back with the leadership of the republican party put forward to the public just moments ago? more on that in a moment for you. a few more of the headlines her here. resolve to repeal obamacare has never been stronger, paul ryan saying that he doesn't want to be about the opposition. he wants to be about propositio proposition. this is what we're looking forward to talking a little bit about. we have a few different news items to get to. we have a panel sitting in the chairs for us. we are awaiting susan crabtree, we have amy. interesting presser, we had to wait a little bit for it. what is the big headline to you? >> it's a big headline.
he's been burned by the process and he doesn't want to talk about timeline. they did concede that trying to jam it through reconciliation through a very narrow process on the senate side really confined them to him i made it bill to pass, but they are actually opening themselves up now to getting democratic votes, so that will be a really different bill at a different process. i think you saw and comments over the weekend, he was very sheepish about the fact that the whole process went down. he continued to be a "no," but he kept telling us he wanted to get to yes. the freedom caucus will not vote for a bell they can't support,
but may be outside the confines of reconciliation, they can all look like they're on board. again, there is a lot of division and after seven years, they never came up with something they can all agree on. the idea of passing something with democrats became a big hurdle. it's possible that they could unite enough of the republican members, maybe some freedom members and as i said, they could pass something that democrats and states won, maybe they can get the support of those ten members on the senate side and push something through. you can see, they don't see a way out of this. they really feel that they own it and they need to press ahead. >> jenna: a lot of maybes. speak out this game, everything is a maybe with health care.
>> jenna: if you can, susan, pick up with what amy was saying. one of the hard things for outside of washington, d.c., the whole issue of reconciliation, what speaker ryan said as he wants to put a bill that can get through the house and get through the senate so they can continue the process. they're worried about passing a bill that the senate would filibuster. why does that matter here, and what should the average american know about that process and why it is challenging? >> the budget reconciliation process is what they're using to move this bill because it only requires a 51 vote majority in the senate. everything in that bill has to have some impact on tax and revenue. that's the clincher here. everything in that bill has to get through the parliamentarian, this is a very archaic
senator rules. other members thought that the house leaders and the senate g.o.p. leaders were hiding behind those rules and that they could overrule the parliamentarian. they could even fire the parliamentarian, there was some talk of that. basically, people pushed back on that idea and said that's not a sound idea for us to be firing the parliamentarian or overruling her. we should abide by the reconciliation process and everything in that bill has to remain to that budget and has to have some impact on the budget in some way. >> jenna: one of the reasons for this is the the freedom caucus wasn't more involved in the first part of the bill. we have to start with this. i didn't like that. >> absolutely.
it's the same type of people they want to show that they don't believe that this budget, this obamacare version would have brought down premiums and deductibles, would have brought more choices for liberal america. they're saying, no, we're not going to do with this, were not going to go along with this. i think they pushed it through way too quickly. president obama had more than a year to get obamacare, the affordable care act through congress and they were trying to do this in 64 days. it takes a very, very long time to get everybody on board. you saw some of the freedom caucus members in 2013 shutting down the government and once they did that, they came back to the negotiating table. they want to show that they are pure. >> jenna: they didn't want something next to their name it
they weren't 100% sure that followed some of their ideology. everyone has a valid argument here, we have to consider it all. we're not here to judge. now we have to come back to hot of this impact us? we are locked in for the next year. that's our reality. what should the american public realistically expect when it comes to any major changes that could impact health care and the price of health care? >> that's a good question. ultimately, people on both sides were considering that the premiums were going to be lowered. what we're learning is that medicaid is really important to a lot of states. it might be paired back, but i don't think it will be cracked
away that they attempted to do it. americans should be heartened that the republicans are recommitted to this. it's not only the right thing to do politically, but it's the right thing to do for health care policy and it's the right thing to do because obamacare is in trouble. the law, itself, is not doing well. more insurers are going to leave and the former hhs secretary said that herself, congress can't do nothing. i think people should be heartened that republicans are ready to go back to the drawing board and try to come up with something. again, aiming at lowering premiums, providing more choices. i think they're going to have to deal with these people who are going to vote against cutting away that medic and expansion. >> jenna: our own research department of the reason why medicaid is so important is that there is actually some confusion over how many people have signed up for health care through medicaid.
about 20 million people signed up through obamacare, half as medicaid. they're not in the private market. that's significant because that affects anyone who wants to get into the private market. speaker ryan doesn't want to commit to a timeline, but you're just mentioning a little bit of a timeline and how clung i could actually take. what are you looking for to see how quickly they can start moving on this? >> they wanted to win in their category in the first 100 days of president trump's administration. they're going to go -- their tax reform is also kind of dicey. there is no agreement between speaker ryan and president trump on the border taxes that he proposed. they want to get a win up there on the board. i think we're going to see a return to regular order here. i think we will have some hearings, certainly there will be a lot of listening sessions. i think that the freedom caucus and others are demanding more regular order.
that means have whole hearings. be able to have amendments on the floor. this process, this is what happens in regular legislation. people have to face up to the facts. everybody gets their say and i think they want voices come in the house freedom caucus wants their voice, the moderates want their boys in the process and it's a messy business, but that's all the founders set up our democracy and needs to play out and it's going to take, i would say, months. >> jenna: it could be really interesting to be able to watch this. let's default optimistic and hope this is the best-case scenario for the american people. i was laughing because i was thinking should i ask susan to define regular order? i don't know what that is anymore. thank you to you both. great to have you. >> eric: new developments this
morning surrounding russia's involvement in the election. donald trump is pointing his finger directly at hillary clinton. at the president taking to twitter this morning calling for the house intelligence committee to look into both mrs. clinton and her husband, the former president. raising what he calls in his tweet "money for bill." possibly an reference to the former presidents speaking fees. he calls the russians and "hoax. "john roberts is live and the white house and the briefing room with the very latest. >> here's the latest twist in this saga. the white house is pushing back hard.
they tried to block sally yates from testifying before the intelligence committee and an open hearing yesterday. the white house is saying in a statement "the washington post story is entirely false. the white house was taken no action to prevent ciliates from testifying. they specifically told her it would not stop her." sally yates attorney sent a letter to the department of justice saying that she wanted to testify before the house select committee on intelligence and some of her testimony would include information that was "privileged" information. the department of justice said it's the president de facto who owns an information because you need to check with the white house. yates attorney sent a letter to the white house saying the department of justice advised she needs to get permission from the white house and of the white house didn't respond by march 27th, that was yesterday, they would see that that the white house has no problem with this and they had the approval to go ahead and do that. the white house has concurred
here, saying that it had no objection to her testifying. the reason it was canceled yesterday, he wanted to hear from the fbi director james call me in a closed session first before hearing from yates, james clapper and other people. james call me has not come before other people. that has been canceled. i know it's a little bit complicated, things are up in the area now, but that's where we stand right now. the white house, the headline out of here saying that it is not in any way, shape, or form, trying to block sally yates, the former acting attorney general from testifying before the house intelligence committee. as all of this goes on, the president himself is going back to a familiar theme on the campaign trail, speaking democrats over a number of different issues that he had them on before, specifically
russia, hillary clinton's connecting to it. and now new connections to john podesta. tweeting "why is it the house intelligence committee looking into the bill and hillary deal that allowed big uranium to go to russia, russian speech. money to bill, the hillary russian reset, praise of russia by hillary, or podesta russian company. trump russia story is a hoax. make america great again." a lot of people are saying that's the wrong thing to do, he's more interested in protecting the president then he is getting to the truth. yesterday, sean spicer said, the white house doesn't see anything wrong with it. >> we've asked of these entities to undertake this review, so it is partially at our request they're looking into this. he has said on the record that he did not myth with white house
staff. >> the president right now is in a meeting with the fraternal order of police members. will get that to you as soon as we find out. >> eric: the controversy is continuing. thank you so much and we will be right back try telling folks abot our heart healthy idaho potatoes, america's favorite potatoes, and donating to local charities along the way. but now it's finally back home where it belongs. aw man. hey, wait up. where you goin'? here we go again.
>> eric: right now, lawmakers across the country are guarding for the first national conference in sanctuary cities. its response to what organizers call the president's divisive policies on this issue that could cause some cities -- this comes one day after jeff sessions warned that cities must comply with federal immigration laws or risk losing federal funds. >> good morning. the goal of this conference is to protect undocumented immigrants and they are discussing ways of doing up this morning beginning with a panel discussion that was entitled
"reducing the risk of deportation." in essence, it was a tutorial on how to assist local jurisdiction and avoiding cooperating with i.c.e. agents who may be seeking immigrants were in the country illegally and may have committed crimes. this was organized by local politicians and began yesterday at the same time that attorney general jeff sessions was speaking at the right right to. in california, the state attorney general reacted, calling this an overreach by the feds saying "it's a low blow to our brave men and women in uniform to threaten to withhold public safety funding that they have earned, unless donald trump gets his way on immigration." century city's supporters say they will fight this federal crackdown. >> new york city is the safest city in this country. if the president wants to put that at risk to make a point to
a dwindling base, then he's being externally irresponsible. >> the attorney general insists that century city's are less safe, referencing 200 crimes committed by undocumented aliens in one week where authorities failed to turn over those aliens to the i.c.e. agents. >> eric: thanks so much. >> jenna: the widow of the parents who killed it for people in london is speaking out about the actions of her late husband. which she sang today. the vice president is a warning about their kremlin meddling in foreign affairs. get to the places you really want to go. with the united mileageplus explorer card, you'll get a free checked bag, 2 united club passes...

>> jenna: a fox news alert, we'd like to keep you updated on what the president is up to on a regular basis. here's what the president is doing at this hour, he is leading a listening session with the fraternal order of police. we're going to watch this, this is a new video we have out of that meeting. so far, no headlines to report. this is what is happening now. >> eric: it was a stunning shock when blackman putin -- his corruption and his country. 80 russian cities will be making the rounds since the protests happen in 2011. could this outpouring of opposition be a challenge to putin's tenure or will the efforts be crushed?
matthew joins us now, good to see you. first off, the extent of the resistance took many by surprise, but do you think it will last? >> i think this is significant. this is the most people we've seen turn out, not only in moscow, where the numbers are may be somewhere between ten and 20,000, moscow is a mega-city, more than 10 million people, but also and about 50 or 60 cities across russia. in the last five years or so, we haven't seen protests of this scale. it is not since 2011 or 2012, which is when vladimir putin announced that it he would return to the presidency. that inflamed anger and action against the kremlin. we've not seen protests of the scale. at the same time, the regime is very firmly in control.
it right police outnumber the demonstrators something like several hundred or maybe a thousand people were arrested, including the leader of the movement. he has not been charged with crimes and jailed, so he's not technically eligible to run for office or president of against putin. the regime has a lot of attack. >> eric: how do you think it could go in the structure of challenging putin? >> is interesting of this protest as it's unlike anything we've seen before. in the last 15 or 20 years, since putin has been in power since the turn of the millennium, the argument has been there is a prudent generation. basically, young people who are in their teens or 20s, what we would call millennials in this country, they are basically putin's people. they've grown up to accept the putin system, they like the stability that they enjoy personal freedoms and they don't mind the fact that they have political freedom. this protest turned out literally tens of thousands of exactly those millennials, those putin people and they were not
happy at all. one made them angry was not so much the lack of liberal democracy or bad relations between russia and the west, it was the corruption. it was the fact that they looked at officials of the putin regime who live internationally who have property in italy and spain, florida in some cases, and they look at how their own parents and they, themselves are working very hard in russia. now the russian economy is not doing so well. they say this isn't fair, this isn't right, and the corruption infuriates them. that's the source of instabilit instability. >> eric: you talk about enriching themselves. it's unbelievable. at one point during the protests, the demonstrators had rubber ducks, that's in reference to a duck palace. here's one of the ducks. big mansions, he is worth $1 billion and it's estimated that vladimir putin is worth
$200 billion. >> easily. you can't put a figure on what they're worth. the line that i appreciate most of the 19th century, but from before the soviet union, before modern russia, that is the star of russia is always going to be the wealthiest man on the planet. flamer he put a czar -- he can make anyone into a multibillionaire overnight and why shouldn't they enjoy this lifestyle? that's what they're doing it for the end of the day. are they spoiling away money? are they buying property and europe or north america or asia? sure, they may be doing that. the simple fact is, as long as these guys run russia, which is the biggest country on planet earth, it's one eighth of the world's surface, siberia, massively energy-rich, massively research
resource rich. >> eric: finally, not just the corruption and all the money, what about the morality? you have a long list of people who have been assassinated. the crusading journalist, the polonium, driven the teacup in london, an american who is an editor of forbes who was murdered last week. dennis, shot dead in the street. what about that? >> this is a really important issue because recently for example, russia officers, basically kgb officers were charged and an american court for cyber hacking against the
united states. they were getting into a relationship where we're going after the russian government, whether it's sanctions -- we have to be very careful to live our own values here. not presume guilt before actual evidence has been presented. the problem we have is linking any individual russian to these specific crimes. what putin is deaf and only responsible for, any moral sense, is creating a system in which the message is, if you oppose me, bad stuff will happen to you. if you play by my rules, you'll get rich. hooton is responsible for this system overall, but it's hard to figure out if putin plunged the knife. we have to make sure to live our own values and live by the evidence and what is proof. i'd be very careful with any of these individual cases. at the end of the day, and may come out that some of these folks were doing other dirty business and that's why they want up dead. there's no question, put in his
creative with the system. >> eric: thank you so much. >> jenna: back here at home, some new information and the alleged rape. shocking new evidence is revealed, we have a lab report. the president said to roll back president obama's regulations and sweeping new executive orders. details ahead. what makes this simple salad the best simple salad ever?
>> eric: breaking news from devin nunes, the chair of the house committee, investing possible coordination between the trump campaign and russian officials. this morning, he said he would not recuse himself from that panel. controversy created by that mysterious visit to the white house grounds. despite critics saying he is in their view, the president's pocket, he is resisting calls from adam schiff and the democrats to step aside. >> are you going to say that you will run this investigation? is >> why would i not? you need to ask him why these things are being said. >> should this investigation continue with you as chairman? >> why should it not question why because i'm not breaking advice continuously?
you have to talk to them, it sounds like their problem. my colleagues are perfectly fin fine. >> eric: for now, mr. nunez will stay. speaker ryan has expressed support. >> jenna: in the meantime, some new evidence in the rape case. one of the fathers of one of the suspects has been arrested. both suspects are illegal immigrants, but that doesn't seem to have changed public opinion of the county's sanctuary policies. there's a lot to unpack here including some new evidence that is confirmed. doug joins us live from city hall in maryland. >> the arrest of when the fathers is a strong signal that ice is stepping up their enforcement, even in century
cities like rockville. yesterday, police arrested -- ice arrested the father for unlawful entry. in other developments, and last night's city council meeting, the scheduled 50 minute public comment. mac stretched to over an hour with -- this occurring after attorney sunil jeff sessions warned it to withdraw federal money. >> we must not enact collective guilt. >> i believe he built a great america. tonight i brought my passport to prove that i am a u.s. citizen.
i do not want to have to carry this anywhere to prove that i am a citizen. >> that sentiment echoed by big-city mayors. marty walsh issued a statement late afternoon which read that cutting out federal funding from cities across the country which aim to foster trusting relationships between their law enforcement and immigrant community is irresponsible and destructive. leslie's meeting was preceded by a rally. all this, while the 14-year-old alleged victim texted "explicitly, rising images of herself to the 17-year-old the day before the alleged rape."

interest in the auto industry and we know the impact we have on the economy. we are excited about the news today and anytime i have a big investment announcement, it's important for the economy important for the united states. >> jenna: n140 words, the president can underline a few things. $1.2 billion, how many jobs are we talking about creating? >> we are creating 130 new jobs at the romeo engine plant, there is also jobs tied to the new data centers in newborn and flat rock. you simply plant protects thousands of jobs. >> jenna: that's really interesting. some of those jobs that you mentioned, some will be lost potentially. >> we have to focus production out of michigan to an existing plant in mexico.
we didn't have the is announcements, no one will lose their jobs as a part of what we're doing. >> jenna: will take that. you have 200,000 plus employees. your market cap from the company is about $45 billion today. there has to be some strategic vision for why this is happening, it's not to get a tweet from the president. it has to be smart from a business perspective. why do you think it's smart now? >> we think for a lot of reasons. if you look at michigan this year, they touch although different parts of what's going on in the business. first off, we mentioned the new ranger and brock are coming to michigan, those will be incremental new products to our portfolio, bringing back things used to be in our lineup. if you look at it, the new data center. today we use 13 bytes of data
storage. we expect by 2021 petabytes. it's 15 zeros. it's a lot of data, how about that? the data -- the car is giving you feedback on what's happening to the vehicle, what's happening in its surroundings, what it's connected to purity can serve customers better and of course, it's necessary to know where the vehicles are in their surroundings. a big deal to know it's going on. >> jenna: what kind of car do you drive, i'm curious? >> i drive a navigator and a mustang. 82015 mustang. i'm excited about the gt, we have a new gt coming. >> jenna: if you told me you
drive a toyota, this interview would be weird. you're honoring ford. it makes sense they have a couple cars. great to have in the program, look forward to having you back. thank you. >> eric: i wonder if that mustang is a convertible. >> jenna: it's cold in michigan. >> eric: coming back to washington, we are awaiting a new executive action from the president. it will unravel obama air and environmental relations. it is getting praise and some harsh criticism. what he will do, what he plans, what it will mean, next
"outnumbered." >> sandra: democrats called for devin nunes to recruit himself from the russian probe or step down entirely. what he said about that, just a short time ago. can he weather this storm? >> harris: and the truck bed administration is cracking down on sanctuary cities. the democratic mayor is now vowing to fight back. who is right? >> sandra: all that plus our #oneluckyguy. it is bill o'reilly today. he has a new book, so much to talk about with him. please join us at the top of the hour. >> eric: see you in about 10 minutes from now. president trump about to make good on a campaign promise to undo obama air and environmental regulations. that will nearly completely unraveled the former president's agenda on the environment. supporters say it will help the economy and bring back jobs.
critics are slamming the president's moves, saying the actions will harm the environment, accelerate global warming, and to do lasting damage to our planet. was the impact? we have the former chair of the missouri republican party. leslie marshall, syndicated radio host, political analyst, and fox news contributor. leslie, let me start with you. in reversing some of these changes, it's not a surprise at all. >> it's on a surprise, this is one of the things of the president campaigned on and promised to do a straight off the bat. this is not a surprise. another thing that people need to look at is what is the net game of jobs? in doing this, you're going to lose green jobs, some coal jobs. look at just the numbers. in 1923, their 800,000 coal job jobs, by 2040, even without this executive action by the
president, cole will not factor into the electricity mix going forward in the future. that's been going on since 1920 until now. >> eric: apparently, wind and solar jobs are ten times more than coal jobs. >> wait a second, president obama will be famous for number reasons. one was if you like your doctor, you can keep it. president obama politicized will for his work. what were you seeing today is a president who is saying wait a second, let's go back to where we were before and think clearly, not about taxpayer-funded jobs, but how we can make the economy work for everybody. this is a great moment, i don't think it's going to do anything damaging to anybody except freeing up the economy and the country to do the things they do well, which is create jobs and
run their homes and everything else. it's a great day and the president is following through. more portly, i think you will stop using the executive branch to do legislation and do things like what obama did for the left wing. >> eric: do you agree with that? it will target the clean power plant, it will rollback the fire plants, it's going to permit fracking. it will also rollback and reverse the obama administration's effort to include client change issues. >> i don't think the majority of people want this. you have to remember that clean air and clean water are not a partisan issue. it is not liberal to want clean air and clean water for ourselves, our children. as a matter of fact, democrats and republicans actually agree on that. that's why we are seeing governance and red states,
mayors of red city states like indiana, michigan, ohio, illinois, and red districts within that state actually going forward with things that mirror what president obama had in place with regard to climate change. even mad dog mattis, he said climate change does affect national security. i don't think americans wanting power plans to have more emissions out there -- why his real estate so cheap next to power plans? >> eric: let me just add something that came up this morning. this order will make americans more vulnerable to climate change. it's important to know that it sends a clear signal to agencies across the federal government, climate change is no longer something that should be considered a priority when making decisions. in fact, 97% of scientists agree that climate change is real and
a result of human activity. i can hear you. >> first of all, leslie needs to be honest with the american people. nobody doesn't want clean water, we all want clean water. but harry reid's family is rich off of solar funds. it's a boondoggle by the left to feed money to the people. it's a corruption. here's what we should say. clean water is a something will require from everyone. we're going to have that. we don't want it to the left wing putting in ideological -- progress is a left-wing outfit that's looking for their angle. that's what obama did. what we want is more freedom. we take these regulations away, the people win. their bills go down. when they get their bill in the mail every month, they go down. >> eric: the bill might go down, but the environment all consequences might go up.
>> that's leslie saying that, not trump. this is a boondoggle, this is a straw man to funnel money to the left. look at what's going on. our waters and streams are cleaner. 99% of the climate scientists pretending they know what the models will do in 20 years, they can't predict the net weather next week. let's make the climate better, sure. >> eric: leslie, 20 seconds. >> i live in los angeles. if you look at pictures of our air quality and look at years ago to now, it has improved regulations, even the picture that was being shown while you were speaking shows pollution going into the environment. do we want to gain jobs, sacrifice clean air and clean water in the future? american people would say no. >> eric: the president will take out his pen this afternoon. we'll see what happens. thank you so much.
>> jenna: see you back here in an hour. "outnumbered" starts now. >> sandra: this is outnumbered. i'm sandra smith. here today, harris faulkner, meghan mccain, melissa francis, and today's #oneluckyguy, we are so lucky to have them back with us, the host of "the o'reilly factor," mr. bill o'reilly is here. by the way, bill's new bucket, "old school: life in the sane" is out in stores today. it's already a best seller on amazon. we congratulate you and we remind you you are outnumbered. >> bill: i know and i'm outnumbered and i'm very frightened. the >> harris: we love having
