3:02 am
i have to find the back story and get back to you on that, steve. a bunch of manufacturers on this strip. a lot of great trump supporters who helped michigan gore for him and get their sense what they care about. is it all the comey stuff or maybe jobs and the economy? brian: thanks a lot, pete. if you are looking for the president, don't worry about washington. going to be a huge impact. i can't believe how it's still picking up steam. kind of unfolding on the fly in some respects. especially his first stop. steve: first stop saudi arabia. apparently they are really going to roll out the red carpeted. is he going to leave joint base andrews this afternoon. among other things he have a tour of the world three great religions. he is going to address et muslim world from saudi arabia. some have suggested it will counter barack obama's cairo speech in 2009 and very an
3:03 am
arab summit in saudi arabia. ainsley: going to israel and meet with the palestinian prisoner and going to the vatican as well to meet with the pope. he was talking yesterday about that appointment of the special counsel. listen to what he said. >> i respect the move but the entire thing has been a witch-hunt. there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign. but i can always speak for myself and the russians, zero. i think it divides the country. i think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things. so i can tell you that we want to bring this great country of ours together. brian: i always feel bad for the leader to let's no questions at all because we really just want to talk to the president. colombian leader okay we are emerging country. just ridded our nation of terrorists but i guess you would rather talk about impeachment or investigations or are you, as president of
3:04 am
the united states, just going to turn over the keys to vice president pence at some point? i just think the investigation, i think the whole thing with the special counsel is kind of interesting. because, as they started looking into this lawmakers are realizing that the thing they pushed for is going -- is going to deal them out. all going to be about robert mueller, not going to be about them. mueller is going to have the access and they won't have the power. they will be pushed aside to the audience which finally might squelch the leaks and devastating information which much of which is inaccurate. steve: special counsel robert mueller, some of his people are quote i had as saying we are going to ask essentially the five congressional hearings. there are five going on, to essentially stop all their public investigations because it's going to get in the way of the fbi investigators. so, going forward, we're probably not going to see so much up on capitol hill. brian: he has the money.
3:05 am
he is going to have the access. as elijah cummings says we have people investigating part time. mueller has the budget. you could tell how long this investigation will be when you see how many people he hires and how much money he needs. he goes mueller could get this done quickly if he is told that way or really do a comprehensive thing that could take over a year. ainsley: waiting to seat james comey memo and all of those notes. they have a week to turn that over, the fbi does. meanwhile a few weeks ago on may 3rd james comey himself said it never happened. he was never asked to stop investigating for political purposes. listen. >> is the attorney general or senior officials at the department of official opposes a specific investigation, can they halt that fbi investigation? >> in theory? yes. >> has it happened? >> not in my experience. because it would be a big deal to tell the fbi to stop doing something without appropriate
3:06 am
purpose. i mean, we are oftentimes they give us opinions that we don't see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it, but i'm talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal e it's not happened in my experience. steve: so what he said in public regarding the attorney general and whatnot is much different than what came out in that colemany memo comey mem. he never saw the memo he read over to the phone. brian: he actually told that to brian williams. he was a little aghast. you never saw it. someone read it to you. yeah i had an idea he wrote everything down so i kept pursuing this angle. same reporter that during the san bernardino terrorist attack these terrorists were overheard talking about jihad. it turns out that was totally not true and he was reprimanded by the "new york times" saying you have got to set up some type of criteria before you run with these stories. steve: have you good beware of
3:07 am
that the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein briefed the entire senate yesterday behind closed doors. and the senators came out one at a time and revealed some things, for instance, apparently he said that donald trump, he knew that donald trump was going to fire mr. comey before that memo came out. what's interesting though is senator mark warner, who is tops on the intel committee, he said rosenstein for the most part did not answer specifics on virtually any question asked. they are tight-lipped to protect the fbi investigation. meanwhile you've got dianne feinstein from out in california. when it comes to the ultimate question was was there collusion between russia and the trump people. and that's what this is all about. and they have been investigating this for months. and you know what? so far they don't have any evidence of that. listen. >> the last time we spoke, senator, i asked you if you had actually seen evidence of collusion between the trump campaign and the russians and
3:08 am
you said to me and i'm quoting you now you said not at this time. has anything changed since we spoke last? >> well, not -- no, it hasn't. so i would depend on this investigation that we're talking about that would bring forward any criminal activity. >> so far you have not seen any evidence of collusion; is that right? >> well, evidence that would establish that there is collusion. there are all kinds of rumors around. there are newspaper stories, but that's not necessarily evidence. brian: talk in the bathroom and some people go yes, i also saw a flier on the streets and newspaper stories. newspaper came in and had a story in it. that's exactly how want running this investigation. steve: that book "shattered" which came out a couple weeks ago the details of the loss of hillary clinton, in that book the authors talk about how the day after hillary clinton lost, what they were going to do. they all got together in a
3:09 am
room and said okay now what are we going to do? you know what? let's push this russia thing? there is nothing to it. let's go ahead and push it because we have gotten some tracked in the press with rumors with what she is talking about. let's push that. ainsley: that's what he victor was saying last night on tucker. political historian and comment territory. listen. >> i don't want to be too dramatic. a slow motion cue where have you a celebrities, academics, the democratic and progressive parties and then you have the media and they feel they can delegitimize a president with a thousand nics. none of them significant in themselves. they coalesce to build a narrative that trump is inexperienced, unkuth, crude, reckless. each day is to drive his popularity down one half a point, one point until he can't function in congress because purple state congressional representatives don't want to take the risk to
3:10 am
negatives. meanwhile the aca, tax reforms, aappointments everybody agrees excellent. brian: a lot of people think et republicans caving like rush limbaugh yesterday saying the republicans caving and going for this special counsel was a huge mistake. they are going to get something. also bring up the fact that senator ron johnson democrats should look out for what they wish for because they just got it. not only is their investigation nullified and sidelined, but there is other people and other que things that took place during that campaign and we will see if that comes to light. ainsley: i think we have breaking news about julian assange o'reilly right, jillian? jillian: that's right. let's get you caught up what you need to know now. the top prosecutor in sweden dropping the rape case against julian assange. he run off to ecuador's embassy in london in 2012 to face extradition in sweden where he is accused of sex
3:11 am
crimes against two women. he has been hold up there ever since. he is afraid if he is arrested he might ultimately be extradited to the united states and chargets charged for leaking hundreds of thousands ever secret documents. last month trump said he would support any decision by the justice department to charge assange. we will keep you potioned there. the plan who plowed his car into times square hurting 22 people and leaving 18-year-old girl dead was high on drugs. >> got a car running people. multiple people run over. >> video hard to watch. a navy vet plowing into a crowd. his car going airborne before hitting a row of steel barriers finally stopping him. 18-year-old alyssa from michigan killed in front of her little sister. he tested positive for drugs. he heard voices in his head and he thought the world was coming to an end. he faces murder charges. the president could make a
3:12 am
huge announcement about the future of the fbi at any time. >> very blessed fbi director. >> senator lieberman -- jillian: former vice presidential candidate joe lieberman one of four people interviewed at the white house this week. not giving specifics on when he will announce his choice to replace james comey. the internet just can't get enough of this candid moment on capitol hill. senator ben sasse tweeting this picture of himself decked out in basketball shorts and a t-shirt hanging out with senate minority leader chuck schumer with his tie undone, hair blowing in the wind. senator tom cotton there but this a full suit. holly molly it looks like senator h he schumer andry smoking refer outside of a

3:26 am
undocumented immigrants who were on northwestern campus. in reality what it really was a pr person for ice i what it was supposed to be a two-day sort of seminar that was going on in the sociology class that would give the students two really great perspectives what's going on in the immigration reform debate. steve: surely. apparently some had complained that the appearance by the ice representative, sammy, would make them feel unsafe although i think the ice representative probably felt unsafe because he got a completely disrespectful reception from the class. >> exactly. that's why professor red byrd had no other choice but to cancel the event. really this is a very trouble ling trend around the whole country universities are becoming less safe for freedom of speech and less safe for expressions of differing ideas it disappointing. steve: did you go to colleges to hear all points of view.
3:27 am
if you want to be in a echo chamber that's easy, do it in your own basement. david, while they did shut down the ice representative, your university had no problem inviting somebody who was convicted for, as a terrorist, for killing two students when they the organization hid a bomb that box of candy. that person was able to speak on campus, weren't they? >> yes. they were invited by a stupidity group on campus. and there was also a protest by northwestern students on that same day, also. but it was more akin to what we're used to at northwestern which is usually peaceful protests that do not have the objective of shutting down the event. a lot of the students actually had a silent candlelight vigil where it was being formed. example of good form of protest. the speaker still got to speak. students in opposition to it were very clearly able to make their point. freedom of speech basically won the day that day. steve: if you say so. but then i saw in the "wall street journal" apparently the president of northwest said that the first amendment,
3:28 am
sammy, the first amendment is not absolute. when you heard that did you think wait a minute, what's going on, where am i? >> yeah. this is the same, you know, i love but at the same time i think he is really wrong about this. freshman class he defended safe spaces. i think in a lot of ways the administration has been a little bit complacent. they haven't been aggressive towards free speech in general. i think they can do a little bit more to defend it and at least tone down the extremism by this group of students. steve: yeah. >> not to jump in here but to be clear president shapiro was very clear on condemning this specific incident. in the past he said freedom of speech is not salute. i think from his perspective ang up in situations like. in in terms of this specific ice event. he has con dirm condemned it. the university is opening up an investigation. steve: toler rent of point of

3:49 am
you expect that to be a different message. >> i think so. i think the whole world needs to see that we are a strong nation and we need to show that because otherwise we need the backing of all the other countries and they need to support us. pete: great message indeed. i didn't hear the word russia yet. indicate, kate, i appreciate th. what do you do. >> i currently work in -- position. it's been entirely impacted with obamacare with the mandate. pete: you voted -- lifelong democrat voted twice for barack obama and switched to donald trump. why did you. >> i want jobs. i want security in our nation. i want the wall to be built. i think that it's important that we secure our borders and our country, take care of our people. and not take care of those across the globe. and that is what resonates here in michigan. pete: very much. so if you turn on any other channel all you hear is comey,
3:50 am
flynn, russia, russia, russia. why is that? >> because they -- many of the mainstream media are liberals. there is saw in wikileaks there's there was collusion in the hillary campaign toe produce a positive narrative versus president trump. they are always going to be going against him. and i'm sick of it. i think they need to start talking about the jobs and the other agenda points that president trump is focusing on. pete: kate, thank you very much. you can hear not a whole lot of desire to talk about russia here. they will want to talk about jobs. they want to talk about healthcare. they want america to not have apology tour across the globe. ainsley: speaking of swag. did you see his shirt? let's find out what his shirt says coming up. brian: incredible commencement speech went viral.

4:03 am
out there. sunni nations almost all. to greet donald trump. and is he going to be speaking to these nations. basically, it's going to be the arab world and free world speaking. donald trump is going to be the keynoter. it's amazing. a guy getting a lot of guff because of a six nation ban or seven nation ban who made some statements on the campaign trail that people thought were anti-islamic. no one told the saudis and no one told the people of cutter. no one told united arab emirates. they love he is coming. this is going to be perhaps his answer to president obama's cairo speech. it's no longer about iran in the region. ainsley: he is also going to israel and meeting with netanyahu. also going to sicily. did you know that the vatican is its own country. smallest country in the world. is he going to stop there to meet with the pope. steve: whole trip kicks off today at 2:10. today is, by the way, the 120th day that the president of the united states has had this job.
4:04 am
and yesterday he appeared in the east room for a little bit with the president of colombia where they were talking about efforts to wring the countries together in all sorts of way. of course, each side, you know, of the colombia press, the american press, each gets two questioners. and, of course, the american questioners wanted to know about that special counsel that was announced earlier this week in the form of former fbi director mr. mueller. what did the president say? he said this. >> i respect the move but the entire thing has been a witch-hunt. and there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign. but i can always speak for myself and the russians, zero. i think it divides the country. i think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things. so i can tell you that we want to bring this great country of ours together.
4:05 am
brian: i think the president would be probably right. best interest not even to talk about this from now on. i understand it was white hot. the tweets that go out. focus on it does not work for him. my hope is now that robert mueller intact. pretty clear to those in that private meeting with the deputy attorney general that there is not going to be much going on for the senate or the house investigative committees because all the attention, all the money, all the staffing, all key fbi guys and women are going to be going to mueller. that was essentially read to them and lindsey graham came out and said, listen, we are pretty stunned. we have been sidelined. and democrats who wanted to make hay for this, leaks come out from robert plurl going to be out without information. he is such a law and order guy that he will lock that place down. ainsley: he loss got a few questions from this one reporter asking about the comey investigation saying did you, when you sat down with comey, did you actually say that you wanted to stop that investigation of general
4:06 am
flynn? listen to this. >> did you at any time urge former fbi director james comey in any way, shape, or form to back down the investigation into the michael flynn and also -- >> -- no. no. next question. steve: the next question was from the same reporter. we're talking about this is not a member of the national press team that covers the white house. this is a guy from wjla scott to you thatman at the local abc 7 down there after he asked that. then he asked the president one thing that many have said you really are going to go there? he did. >> as you look back over the past six months or year, have you had any recollection where you've wondered if anything you have done has been something that might be worthy of criminal charges in these investigations or impeachment as some on the left are implying. >> i think it's totally ridiculous. everybody thinks. so again beings, we have to
4:07 am
get back to working our country properly so we can take care of the problems that we have. brian: i think it also is though the one story that comes at. he did answer one other question and essentially said when asked about any russian contacts. he said i have not had essentially any russian contacts which doesn't mean that his staff didn't. there is a reuters story that comes out today e there is 18 separate calls, emails or text messages between his camp and russian officials whether it's an ola dar ole oligarch, which e wayry have never met one they seem nice. kiskiss -- steve: their investigation is looking at exactly the deal that mr. flynn had with turkey when he was getting something like half a million dollars and what he might have done on their behalf.
4:08 am
by the way this russia thing yesterday hit a crescendo that i had not seen before. maxine waters, who clearly has said some. brian: she will not vote for donald trump if he runs for re-election. steve: probably not. she said yesterday that's true expression lock her up and crooked hillary, which we heard a lot during of the campaign, who came up with those? did you hear this? ainsley: no. what did she say? steve: we had heard lock her up in unison from a lot of people at the trump events and crooked hillary was from donald trump, right? according to her, vladimir putin. these are expresses that were created and developed by people at the kremlin. brian: unbelievable. steve: those expressions according to maxine waters are from russia. brian: same woman jason chaffetz is he retiring because of his links to russia? jason chaffetz. steve: he is from utah. ainsley: let us know what you think.

4:12 am
moment in the nation's history they are the most qualified personal to deal with the issues facing the country. his answer when asked about running in 2020. probably not. look at your headlines right now on this friday morning. brian: i don't know if that was the prompter. i think he kind of ad-libbed that. steve: thank you very much, jill i can't believe. we do know from the books that have been written apparently joe biden was barack obama's number one replacement for barack obama. joe biden said i'm not going to do it my son and everything else. the president went around and started talking to elizabeth warren and she said no. this is not my year. and then they wound up settling on hillary clinton. his third choice. brian: in shatter evidence they do say biden thinking about giving one last one. ainsley: when we all thought comey would indict her and who would take her place and it would have been him. maybe they are regretting that. steve: you think? maybe a little. coming up, remember when

so-called apology tour by some. meanwhile today at 2:10 this afternoon from joint base andrews president trump takes off for his first overseas trip. so how should he make it different from president obama's apology tour gist 120 days into his administration? here to discuss is conservative filmmaker dinesh d'souza joins us from washington. >> good morning. steve: obviously this president's message is going to be different than the last president's message, right? >> i certainly hope. so with obama, you've got this spectacle, tragic as well as calming leader elected by americans for america. nevertheless, for pretending to a kind of olympian detachment from america. almost like obama was standing outside america, lecturing america about its own sins and promising to be a presidential curb on america's behavior.
4:19 am
i think with trump i hope we see the anti-obama, which is a president who is confidently willing to assert american ideals and american interests. a president who asserts that american exceptionism is not incompatible with american universalism. what i mean by that is that the american recipe, although this invented here by the founders is nevertheless a recipe that can bring prosperity and happiness to other parts of the world. steve: sure. dinesh, have you got to figure the president of the united states has got to be happy to get the heck out of town after, for the most part, 120 days of the mainstream media and many on the left just talking about russia, russia, russia. which we knew right after the election back in november that was going to be their story line that the russians stole the election. now we have got a special counsel, that is to say, to continue to look into this for perhaps years so the democrats got what they want. and the president now is getting out of town. i've got a feeling he is not
4:20 am
going to mention russia one time unless he is talking about that country up there. >> well, i do think that we see from what's been hang here at home that the main force of opposition to trump and the republicans does not actually come from the democratic party. it comes from hollywood and the media and academia. these sort of cultural weapons that the left has deploying with full force against trump. i think the appointment of the special counsel is a mistake. the republicans are naively hope by segregating this to one corner, they can somehow keep it confined. i think on the contrary, this will be a constant vehicle to bash trump and try to interrupt the rest of his agenda. steve: you never know. all right, dinesh, thank you very much for joining us today in texas. >> my pleasure. steve: you bet. meanwhile, president trump vowing to solve the health crisis at the v.a. now he is enlisting the energy

how do you quickly. can you offer advice to do that. >> having people that you know are going to be loyal to you. that is something that -- the advice that i would give is have people truly loyal to you, to your vision, the president knows who those individuals are and sort it through and, again, ask people, you know, what ised in the best interest of america? and if out gossipping, passing along leaks is your idea of patriotism, i greatly disagree with you. find another place to work. steve: sure. it's good advice. governor, the president is in a pickle. it was just about a year ago donald trump, who was starting to lead in the polls and eventually would win the presidency, he didn't have that many people on his team. and so his white house, a lot of the people in his white house worked on other campaigns you have people not always aligned with donald trump. maybe they don't like donald trump in one fashion or

loyalty is isn't a partisan issue. loyalty is an issue that you either have in your character or you don't. i would suggest the president is pretty good about analyze hog is going to be loyal to him and his philosophy. whoever he decides upon, and i don't have any inside information that he has made a final pick. my bet is he probably hasn't. he is talking to a lot of folk he is, as he does. and he will blake a choice that is loyal to him, loyal to the philosophy that he has of making this country great again. steve: great. we have received a leak that apparently the departments of energy and veterans affairs are going to team up to help use some of your super computers to figure out how to make our veterans healthier. could you explain that to us? >> not a leak. that is a full on blasted out press released story. as you all know my interest in

veterans go back to a substantial lengthy time in my back ground to where a young man who came and lived with us with post-traumatic stress or traumatic brain injury. the challenges that you have being at war through all those many years, that has manifest itself. as the governor, looking for the different ways to help these veterans. as i have ended up at the department of energy, working with secretary shulkin, dr. shulkin has a passion for these vets as well. there will be some other agencies that we incorporate to help create an effort -- a federal government wide effort, if you will, in a lot of different agencies to support these vets. the million vet project is one that got started some months ago out of the v.a. collecting blood of these veterans in turn analyzing them for their
4:31 am
d.n.a. so we can look into the future, if you will, look into their personal d.n.a. and give them some advise and ideas about here is what you may be facing later in life. be prepared for it. here is the treatment, et cetera. that is a great gift. it's one that we are halfway home. a little over half a million people in this program now. you have to be able to analyze that data and the super computers over at the department of energy, we offered that up. so you are going to see an office of veterans health at the department of energy before this is all said and done. so we're focused on helping our vets as well as moving this country forward on the technology front. and our national labs are amazing jewels. brian: go get them, mr. secretary. thanks so much. ainsley: thanks for what you do for the vets. brian: have you seen this?

in the mirror everyday. when i look when i look in the mirror everyday. everyday, i think how fortunate i am. i think is today going to be the day, that we find a cure? i think how much i can do to help change people's lives. that helps me to keep going to cure this. my great great grandfather lived to be 118 years old. i've heard many stories from patients and their physicians about what they are going through. i often told people "oh i'm going to easily live to be 100" and, uh, it looks like i might not make it to retirement age. we are continually learning and unraveling what is behind this disease.
