>> good morning, brian, steven and ainsley. it's going to raise tensions between syrian and iranian forces. proassad, prosyrian forces entered the deconfliction zone in the south of syria near a u.s. base where u.s. special forces and british special forces are based in special forces. they were attacked by isis fors at which point they sent reinforcement and aircraft weapons, et cetera, u.s. forces reached out by russian deconfliction channel and urged them to get back and they did not listen, the u.s. air strike took out the weapons, we do not know casualties but we will see serious issues coming out of that. part of the antiisis coalition, we know the success they've been having on the battlefield has been connected with attacks elsewhere much like in london past week and london really now
3:04 am
trying to get back to normal and today certain parts in market reopen. that was where the knife attack itself happened but this attack being hot le -- hotly debated and how they were able to skip through the net. one of them was willingly filmed prayed with isis flag in a documentary called jihadi next door. he came in via island while usef had been caught going to syria and told authorities, i'm going to be a terrorist. the attacks led to one arrest but all except two of them have been released and authorities continue to try and find out who else was involved, how did they meet, was it at a mosque or online, that's the big question people are going to be asking and very lad are you we are hearing that another body has been pull out in the river,

3:06 am
associates have told reporters that james comey will not say that the president try today obstruct justice. that's good for the president, however, he is going to dispute the fact that the president in the letter that the president wrote to mr. comey firing him said that you told me i'm not under investigation three times. come write is going to dispute that to say it was not obstruction of justice. brian: right, this is interesting because the president went out of his way on the firing memo. she's going to have a chance to ask questions, listen, there's a huge difference between, hey, mike flynn just got fired, he's a good guy, no reason to go forward, that's reason from i'm your boss and you better do this or else, there's a my juror difference and specially with somebody that's been president for five minutes. ainsley: he didn't do that and he went onto have this message for comey, listen.
3:07 am
>> what message do you have for james comey ahead of his testimony? >> i wish him luck, thank you, everybody. brian: my hope is for the president, i think he has a huge day scheduled in his own right. i think people made sure to do that because you know how intense the president is and he feels james comey is coming at him every instinct would be to go right back at james comey through tweeting. steve: they're saying the president may live tweet. brian: huge mistake. live tweet specially because you're in legal issues now. mr. president, focus on your agenda, there's nothing you can do about james comey and move forward. robert mueller is going to have the -- ainsley: you sound like a lot of people in cok but a lot of people in middle america -- brian: his legal team doesn't

3:09 am
fbi director owes an answer to that question to the country. brian: if the president put you in a corner and said i need you to do this and that why did you continue with the investigation, number two, if you have notes, detailed notes of the meeting, i would like to see the loretta lynch meetings and barack obama meetings and you have such a great memory and you go out of the way to write these things down. let's see it all and let's see what prompted you to make comments and press conference that dumbfound sod many -- dumbfounded so many. ainsley: send us your comments and let us know what you want to hear from james comey, if you want to hear from him at all. anthem, big insurance company, we have seen humana and aetna

3:18 am
irredeemable but thankfully they are not america. steve: that's where the irredeemable t-shirts came right there. ever since big election loss democrats getting sound bites, you can't win votes by showing contempt for voters, right? but our next guest claims liberal disdain for middle america is baked in the idea of identity politics, here now to explain is wall street journal columnist and former steech writer for president w. bush, bill. >> good morning. >> in your column you talk about crazy things that liberal commentators have written about middle america is it's not good. >> no, i think what people miss, i was talking about the contempt toward trump voters or middle of america, there were five people, five people with impeccable liberal democratic credentials who said this is a problem for the party.
3:19 am
that's what i was writing. they all sort of appeared at the same time and it's amazing that some of the response sort of confirms the problem that they have. i'm sure they're getting beat up for it. steve: you write in your column that progressives have got to tone down the looking down. >> right. all some -- most of the columns had good advice. they describe the average american, middle american, they have republican spouses, they're patriotic and so far and it's a measure of where we are that they feel they have to inform their fellow progressives that this is what the people are like. steve: that's where the irredeemables came from. it has worked in certain circumstances for the democrats but going forward it's not going to get them votes?
3:20 am
>> if you take what these people are writing seriously, saying we have a problem in that we seem to be insulting to people whose votes we want and that's why we lost, what they didn't address is what i said, that's fueled by identity politics because in identity politics, if you disagree with me, you're not just my political opponent, you're my oppressor and that's the language. mrs. clinton was taking the language to the logical conclusion when she talked about deplorables and so forth. it's not something that she invented. steve: great columnist in wall street journal. thank you very much for joining us today. >> thank you. steve: coming up on this wednesday, people come to our country asylum, should they be returned back home, our guest says absolutely, no. black lives matter wants you to boycott the nfl because it's too

11:59 p.m. tomorrow night, brian, you have a little bit of time. brian: good. president trump not mincing words over immigration policy and he tweeted this. you're seeing it. we need a travel ban for dangerous countries and not politically term. there's a bill in the house and could have stopped terrorists like the boston mar then, came and left back. always great to have you, congressman. i haven't seep you since the super bowl in person but when it comes to this, how can this help us? >> well, it would help us because it would take away what our commonly called loopholes but in fact, they are provisions within the law that allow people to ask for entry into the country based upon asylum and other methods that are presently available under the law. as you know, president trump has taken a great and strong stand
3:26 am
not only on behalf of the american people but really to defeat those who would come to this country to perpetrate terrorism, however, we must close all the loopholes, give secretary kelly the tools that he needs and to make sure that we protect this border by those who would come to this country under, i think, false pretenses. brian: i want to give everybody at home what's on the books and what's been proposed. back in 2015, this protection act, terminate the refugee or asylum status without compelling reason returns to country of nationality or case of alien have nationality return to country in which the alien resided and applied for such status because of persecution of well-founded fear persecution. for example, if you say you're persecuted and you come here on foot, if you say, quote, i have fear of persecution, you get to stay, but if not only going to
3:27 am
be tough but for the people that go back home again, you can come back because it shows that you made it up. >> well, every bit of that is certainly a circumstances but the bottom line is the law allows people who come here to be able to make these claims and to have automatic entry receive a lawyer, have a hearing and go through a process and perhaps that's important. what we want to do is take away the reasons why people are automatically allowed these provisions and you understand also they are provided a lawyer and i'm sure they're coached along the way. these are not just loopholes, they are actual circumstances when you look at the boston bombers. brian: chairman, they went back, they evidently got training and came back and the fbi talk today them and still let them stay and we know what they did at the marathon. what you're also seeing the people that got in line this is
3:28 am
respecting them and i appreciate you going through our process but in the big picture it seems like you guys are doing something that i thought was impossible. incrementally putting in immigration reform, both border, real progress, handle people who are coming here for fear of persecution and then swrow the dreamers that needs to be addressed and then soon pathway to citizenship while revamping the laws for people that we want to stay because they go to colleges, are you saying forget comprehensive, little by little, we are going to get this done? >> i'm not saying that at all. what i said is president trump made sure that american people were openly heard from and responded to. the president had to do catch and release and we had a bill yesterday in rules committee that would add some 2,000 new members of not only ice but the border patrol. we do not have enough officers at the border. we do not have enough people who
3:29 am
are prepared to intercept these people that come. we have over time from president obama seen the number of people dwindle and their responsibilities dwindle. so we have to build back our front line forces. president trump is on not only in line to do this but making sure congress is going to fund these people. we are getting our job done. brian: real quick, ten-second answer. what's holding it up? >> process. the process has to be more robust. what's holding up the bill, i'm sure the majority leader is going to schedule a vote on the bill. it's come out of committee. it's a matter of majority leader doing this and i'm sure we will do that. brian: so it's on track. great to see you. coming up straight ahead. black lives matter wants you to boycott the nfl because some of the owners support president trump. do you think people on food stamps should get a break on amazon? amazon does. we will give you the details next. first, happy birthday to vice

[laughter] brian: how great was that? you can't realize you're al gore until recently, he has been in hiding for 10 years. he's back. steve: he go down to washington, d.c., right now, bring in gary cohn, the president's chief economic advisor. >> good morning. steve: later today after the president flies air force one in cincinnati, five minutes after he parks the plane, he will be speaking to victims of obamacare. what are the victims of obamacare? what does that mean? >> these are families losing their insurance or have had the insurance premium skyrocket being a part of obamacare. we're going into ohio today. i'm sure you saw the news
4:36 am
yesterday, that one of the major insure pull out of ohio. we'll have 18 counties with no insurance. they are the victims of obamacare. they want to buy insurance but they can't because there are no providers. brian: hire is the issue, gary, senator lindsey graham brought this up, hardly a right-wing firebrand. mr. president, this is not your problem, this is not your plan, not the republicans plan. let it die, democrats will come and works on something that will actually work because the cbo will trash anything that republican put forward. what about that? >> you know, i don't think it is the president's agenda to let it die and leave people that want to have good health insurance to be without health insurance. steve: sure. >> as we're looking around the country today, and we see americans working hard to take care of their families and be insured who want to buy insurance but have no availability of product because insurers pulled out of their
4:37 am
counties and pulled out of their states because they just can't provide insurance because the financial aspects of it don't work, because people can sign up for insurance the day they get sick. that is not the way insurance works. you buy insurance, you pay premiums, when you need it you get your costs covered. the way obamacare works, you don't buy insurance until you need it, then you pay for insurance. steve: that is the conundrum. ainsley: the president is slashing all red tape at historic levels we're being told, reducing regulations of a tiny fraction of burden imposed by previous administrations. what is he doing? we're told in order to even build a road you have to go through some regulations, by the time you get it approved, years have passed and companies have gone out of business that put in their bids? >> so one of our big agenda items on infrastructure, as you know this is infrastructure week, we started by announcing air traffic control reform on monday. we're going to ohio today to talk about inland waterways. tomorrow we have governors an
4:38 am
mayors, bipartisan governors an mayors here. on friday we go to the department of transportation to talk about roads, bridges, rails. one of the other objectives we have is the approval process. right now it takes 10 years to get any infrastructure project approved in the united states. we're going from 10 to two philosophy. we want to cut time frame from 10-year approval process to two years. we want agencies, government agencies to go through the process to work with each other and get approval processes timely as possible. if we can't approve something, let's turn it down and have the money and capital moved to something that can get done. the time delay really is costly in this whole process. steve: sure. >> american citizens deserve something better. steve: speaking of time delay, one of your main priorities is tax reform. that is what the president would like to see. we her we'll get health care done and biel get tax reform done. we'll do them early summer, late summer, fall, now people are talking about, you know what? there is possibility tax reform
4:39 am
is not going to happen this year. the president met with top republicans yesterday. are you guys all on the same page because it seems like the president and you want to go but seems like republicans in congress, eh, not so fast? >> yesterday was actually a very good day for us on tax reform. as you said the president had republican leadership into the white house. men later in the day secretary mnuchin and myself met with both house leadership, speaker an chairman brady and we met with senate leadership. we met with leader mcconnell and leader hatch. six of us met. we talked about a tax plan. we talked about the schedule. we agreed on a schedule. we agreed on our objectives and agreed on a time frame. steve: is it this year? >> we're all on board this year. universal consent to get it done this year. brian: took reagan go years. he already got a tax cut right away. new language is tax cut not tax reform should we look into that? >> i think you should use both
4:40 am
words, reform and cut. yesterday we talked about a very robust program where we're going to have reform and cuts. we need to simplify the tax system in the united states. we need to it be able to have american citizens to back to their kitchen table to do their taxes. it shouldn't be where you have to hire a tax planner or buy some software to do your taxes. should be able to do them at your kitchen table. take your income and tax rate, pay the government if you owe us any money. steve: we like the idea of making it simpler. gary cohn, thank you very much. you have to go to cincinnati to fix the waterways. get your hard-hat. >> thank you. ainsley: sinned it over to jillian for headlines. >> good morning to you guys, you at home as well. we'll get you caught up this hour. new york city will spend 2million taxpayer dollars to give illegal immigrants free lawyers. it will be offered to anyone facing deportation even convicted serious crimes. new york mayor de blasio does
4:41 am
not support the part of the plan and could veto it. he may be the newest u.s. senator but wasting no time to fund the southern border wall. make sanctuary cities pay. >> we're a nation based on rule of law, then we'll use that money to build the wall. he just won't get it. >> the senator's plan involves stripping transportation dollars and securing the u.s. border. brian, that epic water trick we showed you yesterday, turns out it is real. he is lifeguard. i tells "tmz," you get a big push at the top, sit up trait to perfect the glide. according to the lifeguard all coworkers can pull off the trick. took them two years to learn it. the lifeguard is a attraction there. are you tell skeptical. brian: no.
4:42 am
if you can do that you should be responsible to fight crime. that is something aquaman should learn to keep law and order in jamaica. >> cross your legs, big push, you're good to to. ainsley: crazy on the video. he is on his bottom, gets to the edge of the pool and jumps up. what if he doesn't jump up, hits the wall? >> took two years to figure it out. brian: great journalism, jillian, thank you very much. straight ahead, why are some conservatives still attacking president trump? our next guest has a message for them. please report to duty. he is dennis prager and on deck. ainsley: president trump to trying to plug the leaks, filmmaker michael moore has a plan to unplug them. brian: does he have a job? ♪ ♪ when it comes to heartburn...

steve: he may have won their party's run for president but donald trump still facing attacks from republicans and conservatives and our next guest says they're making a big mistake. here to explain is syndicated radio talk show host and founder of prager university.com, dennis prager joins us from l.a. dennis, what are you talking about? why are conservatives attacking trump but should not? >> i actually finally figured it out, i want to say so people understand where i'm coming from, i was totally anti-trump through the primaries. steve: right. >> i wrote column after column against him. he was my 17th choice, i want to make that clear. however from the first column i wrote, if he is the nominee i will vote for him. once he was the nominee payings natalie campaigned for him. and now i am still so to speak campaigning for him and there is a very simple reason. there is something considerably
4:47 am
worse than donald trump and that is the left. and what conservatives who are attacking president department seem to understand, is what depth of threat to america, the left, classical liberals are non-issue to me, i admire them, the left, which is the democratic party, on rat tiffly the left opposes the united states. i will give you one sentence here. when barack obama was running, he said, we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the united states of america. that's what the left wants to do, fundamentally transform this country. i don't. steve: all right. dennis, you write that people, particularly conservatives, need to realize we're in a civil war and he is the commander-in-chief. so if you believe all things conservative or republicannish, you need to get in the boat, even though you might have to,
4:48 am
may have held your nose to vote for donald trump. >> that is exactly right. you know, i get -- listen, the beauty about appearing with you, you know, i can rehearse all of these things. i have a three-hour show every day, so people call me up, come on dennis, lesser of two evils is still evil. they told me during the campaign. i said no, the lesser of evil is more good. people don't seem to appreciate that fact. i don't believe he is evil. i think it is wildly overstated. i can't stand most of his tweets. he doesn't speak like i do. it doesn't matter. he has achieved more conservative victories than both, than all of the republican presidents, that is the two bushes, since ronald reagan. steve: wow. >> if any of these conservatives who are anti-trump would have been told in one year you will have the most conservative cabinet in history, you will pull out of the paris accords,
4:49 am
you will have a supreme court justice who was conservative, they would have said, wow, cruz won? steve: right. great point. so, dennis, for the conservatives who may not be on the trump train right now, what is your message for them? >> that we are in a civil war and if you don't recognize it, then obviously it doesn't matter. you want someone who talks like you and you could be proud of and so on. as i wrote in my response to the criticisms of me, by the way they were all very respectful thank god, as is mine to them, most of these guys are my friends. most of them have made videos for prager university on the internet. this painful battle we're having here. but i want them to understand flawed people can do great good. that is the way it is. i'm a religious jew. i studied the bible. and so do religious christians. they know god uses flawed people like king david and rahab the
4:50 am
prostitute. so i guess maybe if you're more biblically oriented you can understand flawed people can do good things. steve: you say donald trump so far has done a lot of great stuff. >> yes, yes. steve: dennis prager, thank you very much for joining us from los angeles. we'll break away. we have a fox news alert right now. president trump announced his nomination to replace james comey as the fbi director. that coming up next. i love how usaa gives me the peace of mind and the security just like the marines did. at one point, i did change to a different company with car insurance, and i was not happy with the customer service. we have switched back over and we feel like we're back home now. the process through usaa is so effortless, that you feel like you're a part of the family. i love that i can pass the membership to my children, and that they can be protected. we're the williams family,

brian: here you go with breaking news and donald trump has it of course because he did it. he named a new fbi director. says it like this. i will nominate christopher a.
4:54 am
wray, a man of impeccable credentials to be the new director of the fbi. details to follow. ainsley: he is served from 2003 to 2005 assistant attorney general in charge of the doj's criminal division. steve: also, interestingly enough, he was apparently chris christie's attorney in the "bridgegate" hull la ba legal over in new jersey. when you look at his website, it is quite, we're looking at the king and spalding website, he was also court appointed special master to help the court resolve discovery dispute between department of justice and major health care company and major false claims. compliant with a global settlement on leading technology companies. this is guy, very smart guy, the president's pick to run the fbi. ainsley: graduate of yale. brian: graduate of yale. man, this guy supposedly a brilliant litigator. that is what he is known for. they say he was also named as
4:55 am
somebody you can go to on toughest issues for legal counsel. now in the private sector. used to serve in the government. ainsley: what do you make of timing? james comey speaking tomorrow and giving his testimony? steve: absolutely. what is interesting, from this particular biography, he has never worked for fbi. worked for department of justice. there were a number of people after james comey was fired you have to get somebody who has been at the fbi. mr. wray, according to what we've seen, at king and spaulding on that website was not at fbi. ainsley: people will wondering if he would appoint someone with fbi experience not political. he was appointed, as i mentioned, assistant attorney general in charge of doj's criminal division that was appointed by president bush. brian: a lot of people interviewed for the job, acting director andrew mccabe, guy i know president trump likes, former fbi agent and congressman mike rogers. in the end wray who interviewed
4:56 am
this week on tuesday who ends up getting the job. they said yesterday no front-runner to get the position. they probably knew at time it was going to be wray. you have to offer to him. remember two weeks ago before the president left it was lieberman. joe lieberman was going to get it. president got political push back. go with the guy with a criminal attorney background, not a political figure, even if he is as well-liked for many people as joe lieberman. steve: clearly around washington, d.c. for very long time. he knows how it works. he is is the president's pick to run the fbi. once again his name is christopher a. wray. ainsley: up is an important, such big agency, good that position is being filled sooner rather than later. brian: walk into a job that is going to demand that he get ramped up quickly. steve: we'll look at his biography. judge napolitano is on speed dial will talk about the new fbh

5:00 am
steve: well, it's 8:00 in new york city. we brought in the judge because, judge, donald trump just tweeted moments ago said i will be nominating christopher a ray, a man of because he can i believe credentials. >> well, he's right about the impeccable credentials in the justice system and probably also the respected fbi agents will have for hip. he's on the young side. he spent a lot of time in the justice department. steve: not at the fbi per se. >> correct. but onto trying cases but supervising cases and in that capacity inevitably interacted with both field agencies. you know, agents that are actually out on the field investigating and supervisors, because he's been out of the job in the department for 12 years. many now holding senior positions.
5:01 am
there's a draw back here that i'm sure democrats will exploit, that is bridge gate because he was chris christie's lawyer during bridge great. and a lot of people felt he did a great job there. but that is going to open up. that in my view is irrelevant to his qualifications to be director of the fbi. but you can certainly expect it because the democrats -- brian: you keep politics in this. by the way, ray spent two years under james comey also. he has the real life background, he has the government background, and he seems to have the intellect for the legal community. >> this also indicates to me a little bit of a risk between the justice department and the white house because this is not somebody that was interviewed by jeff sessions or rod rosenstein. this person was interviewed by the president. meaning all the people that the attorney general and the deputy attorney general interviewed on a saturday and
5:02 am
a sunday at the president's instructions, he was not on that list, and he was last person the president -- that the president decided to make had decision on his own, irrespective of what his team at the justice department -- ainsley: judge, do you know him personally? and what's he like? >> i don't know him personally, and i know of him. i'm sure we met at some point because we had careers in new jersey at the same time. his reputation is excellent. one of the finest law firms in the country. if produced griffin bell who was jimmy carter's attorney general, a very commendable, neutral serious law enforcement. brian: what i wonder too, just on your one point on chris christie as a client. if chris christie cowls calls for a legal conclusion me up and says i need a good lawyer, i'm going to go to him and choose him. >> agreed. but tell that to the democrats in the senate.
5:03 am
they're salivating over the bridge gate stuff because they'll throw it at him. he'll deflect it, but it will be generated again. steve: when he was looking for the secretary of state, donald trump asked anybody. hey, got any ideas for secretary of state? and it was mr. gates who suggested rex tillerson, which was a kind of crazy choice. brian: unorthodox. steve: but it turned out to be fantastic. here's my question. do you think it was a possibility he was asking everybody including chris christie, who should be the fbi director and chris christie said i have a great guy for you. >> yes. and with my personal encounters with the president-elect and the president in both of his capacities, this is the way he is. he goes with his instinct. when he sees something that he wants and likes and knows it, he stops the search, he makes the decision, and he moves on. he had this interview. what's today? he had this interview yesterday, and he made the decision right there. brian: and that's when it was
5:04 am
pointed out that sean spicer said there was no leading contender for this position. >> sean probably didn't want to steal the president's thunder. brian: yeah, that would be problematic. you mentioned before could this underlying tensions between the attorney general and the president. >> i hope not. brian: but do you think they're real? >> yes. i do think they're real. i have great respect for jeff sessions. i now think it was a mistake to recuse himself. brian: you do? >> yes, i do i don't think that taking him out of the biggest investigation in the post watergate era was wandered because he forgot that he had one or two meetings with the russian ambassador. and you can undo a recusal, the attorney general could decide today i'm not going to recuse myself. but it's such a hot potato that i have to -- ainsley: reports show president trump was upset with him for using himself and according to the latest reports he said i'll step down and the president said no.
5:05 am
brian: before his last trip, he said do you want many tow resign? and the president said, no, i don't want you to resign. but yesterday sean spicer has not said he has full confidence in attorney general sessions. >> i was hoping his answer was erroneous. because it would be very, very bad for everything happening on capitol hill now if jeff sessions were to resign. ainsley: sean spicer said i haven't talk about it with the president. but then charles said last night the last time the president said that, it was about comey and he was fired two days later. >> we don't know which way it's going to go. brian: he was the first established lawmaker involved in the president's campaign, and i think it's the normal -- ainsley: loyalty. brian: tension between people under a lot of stress. steve: what do you make of the timing? today, the president announces he's got a new fbi nominee.
5:06 am
tomorrow the former fbi director who he fired is going to be testifying. >> i think the timing politically is brilliant. if it was timed intentionally. it may have been he just made up his mind yesterday whelmed when did he do that interview. we'll take a little bit of the wind out of the sales of what's going to happen later today when the intelligence heads and andrew mccabe, the acting director of the fbi testifies and tomorrow when former director james comey testifies. brian: are we going to see a different andrew mccabe knowing he's no longer in contention? >> probably. he probably learned he's no longer in contention the way we learned with the president's tweets. brian: and he's on saying there's nobody obstructing justice. >> guaranteed he'll be asked about that in two hours. brian: here are some republicans you were looking forward to hearing from tomorrow more than comey between cotton, rubio -- i don't know if i said rubio. who do you think is more prime
5:07 am
to ask the more penetrating questions or more interesting line of questions. >> i think senator cotton is a very serious lawyer. graduate of harvard law school as well as his career in the military. and i don't think it's going to hold back. but you're going to see a different jim comey. you're going to see a chastened fact-centered witness. not an fbi director lecturing the country and the committee on the laws. he's not going to make judgments. he's not going to make legal conclusions. he's going to say what he heard, what he said, what he saw, and what he thought. steve: what's interesting, though, is he's already put out words through his own personal -- >> yes, he has. steve: all the papers have. okay. so he's going to say the president didn't obstruct justice. but at the same time the letter that the president wrote firing comey was incorrect where it said mr. comey said there times mr. trump, mr. president, you're understand under investigation.
5:08 am
mr. comey's going to have a more nuanced approach to that. >> i expect that rubio and company want to see those memos. text and context. i was surprised that bob muller is letting comey testify because the last thing in the world a prosecutor wants from one of his witnesses is to have the witness testify in another forum where the prosecutor isn't even going to be present. that's what's going to happen tomorrow. muller isn't going to be there for jim to say don't answer that. ainsley: there's no evidence of collusion. last night on hannity show, there was a montage. >> right. ainsley: saying no evidence. no evidence. >> right. ainsley: then the other investigation is the leakers and there is proof of the leakers and then this 25-year-old reality winner is the first lyric. will she get the full ten years? >> you know, i have a different view of that leak. i applaud that leak because that leak shows that
5:09 am
barack obama was untruthful when he stated that the russians had no effort to interfere with the election. it shows that vladimir putin was untruthful, and it shows there was no connection between the trump campaign and the russians. i read that 20 page. brian: i'm so surprised you saying that because you're a man of the rule of law. she signed a confidential agreement. >> there's no question that she broke the law. absolutely no question. but she did it for a higher good, and i am glad that we now know what was in that report. steve: the higher good. brian: also know she loves cash. >> a unique individual between the cats and the bumper stickers and the awful things she says about the president. look at her. she looks like a cat woman. [laughter] ainsley: this is as close as i'll get to owning a cat. i like them but -- >> i can't forgot what you said about me on my birthday yesterday. ainsley: how was your birthday?
5:10 am
>> it was good. but i'm waiting years before i have another one. steve: we have the judge here, today. the president has nominated christopher a ray as his new fbi director. judge, real quickly. the process is what to get his confirmed? >> confirmation by the senate, which is the democrats have -- correct. republicans have majority. brian: just hand in your invoice. steve: thank you, harry reid. >> yes. so, no, filibuster on this. jillian, you ready? >> i'm ready. i was waiting for you to talk with me. good morning with ainsley. i'm with you. i don't have cats. but i have a lot of breaking news overnight. and we start with brand-new shocking video of the terror attack on police in paris. and i do want to warn you the video you're about to see is graphic. you can see the suspect bash the officer in the head. the cop knocked to the ground

5:13 am
steve: jillian, thank you. coming up, if people come to our country seeking asylum, should then allowed to go back home? hear from somebody who says absolutely not. ainsley: and while president trump plugs the leak, filmmaker michael moore just made a plan to unplug them. if you teach someone to fish, you might never see them again. this summer, join the movement and take someone fishing. and there's no better place to get someone started than the bass pro shops gone fishing event. learn more at basspro.com/gonefishing.

steve: fox news alert. president trump announcing his pick for the fbi director tweeting i will be nominating christopher a ray, a man of impeccable credentials to be new director of the fbi. details to follow. some of the details that we have been able to put together, he did work at the department of justice for a number of years under george w. bush where he was assistant attorney general. he then went to private practice with in atlanta and washington where he specialized in white-collar crime. brian: also, he worked under james comey for two years at the department of justice.
5:18 am
lives in georgia, has two kids and a wife, he's going to be spending a lot of time in washington working for this nomination and likely getting the job. ainsley: he was also chris christie's personal attorney under bridge gate, and we have tom here to react to this. what's your reaction, tom? >> well, i think he may be a good pick. i think we need someone with the leadership and bravery necessary to take on the institution of the fbi. image hope he's that type of pick. because if he's just going to be the typical fbi director, it's going to be a loser both for president trump and the american people. now, the left is going to react and scream about grig gate, bridge gate, bridge gate. governor christie scandal up in new jersey. but he was the lawyer for governor christie, and he wasn't charged for anything doing wrong. so he's going to complain about his clients, he did represent a lot of corporate clients. but he did work in the justice department for a few years under president bush. and the senate is going to
5:19 am
examine his record, and he's going to be asked questions about his record, and that's the right thing to do. but i just hoped he's asked questions from the point of view of a reformer as opposed to from the point of view of the typical washington game that just wants an fbi director to do the same old, same old. brian: are you under the impression the fbi's broken? >> well, it has been abused under president obama. it's somewhat been oblivious to some of the threats caused by islamic terrorism. so i really think we need a reformer there. and the fbi is doing a lot and maybe too much, and it doesn't have the trust the american people because of the spying scandal against president trump and the politics with president obama. so we really need some reform there. the fbi gets a lot of freebies here in town because it's quote the fbi. it needs to be held to account like other agencies. steve: he left the department of justice 12 years ago.
5:20 am
so for the most part, he's an outsider. he did work in government it looks like for three years. do you think the outsider thing might have been appealing to the president? >> well, maybe, though, he's not really that much of an outsider. he's been a lawyer for, you know, high-powered corporate clients for years as a white-collar defense lawyer. he's a well-known lawyer, obviously with experience in fighting and battling the government on high level cases. so i'm hoping his private experience battling the government in various defense cases has them recognize that the government's not always right and needs some oversight internally from its director. ainsley: tom, thank you for joining us and giving us your perspective. brian: handling the breaking news instead of the news we were going to discuss because this is breaking news. we've been waiting on this i was your, meanwhile, presiden president trump's plans to stop terror. our next guest says it's exactly what we need to deal with the crisis. retired navy seal eric prince

brian: president trump announcing his pick for fbi director moments ago. he said i'll be nominating christopher a wray. details to follow. we've gone over that. here to analyze who would have a successful head, he could be, let's ask former navy seal, founder of blackwater. eric prince is with us right now. eric, welcome back. brian: whawhat does the fbi need as a leader? >> he needs to take on the political correctness of the fbi. there's a lot of political pressure there. how many of these terror attacks we had in america that were known wolves. not lone wolves but people who have been under surveillance before but the data never made it up the chain of command so that there was actually prosecution ahead of these attacks. brian: you know how that bureaucracy works. is it possible for a man to set the tone like that? >> absolutely. some key firings and some clear direction from the top.
5:26 am
leadership roles downhill, and he's got a big job to do. brian: everyone's focused on comey and what's going to happen tomorrow. the big picture, has one major decision on his guest, and he's wrestling with it. what to do in afghanistan. you have a five-point plan, and you point out that we've spent $828 billion, trillions in veterans care, 2,000 dead, 20,000 wounded. we've got to do it better. how do we do it better, eric? >> needs to put one guy in charge. if you go back to the macarthur model after world war ii, one person in charge that controls the money, the rules of engagement, and the deployments of any u.s. forces. if you do that, you reward good behavior and negative behavior. i would also put that person in charge of pakistan policies, since pakistan is tied to success. two, this one leader has to set the rules of engagement. three, you have to change the model of the 8,000 or so u.s. troops that are there.
5:27 am
leading of afghan troops, they're not able to do it. if you change back to what was used in the east india company in that area for 250 years, you had contracted forces, professionals that lived with, trained with, and fought side by side with their local counterparts. >> this is important. you say you put troops down there but for fighters, you want to use private contractors as fighters? >> it has been done there for hundreds of years. it works there for hundreds of years. yes, you can have a direct element there. but for supporting of the infrastructure of the afghan government, the limitations on u.s. troops that are there, they're so high bound that they can't be effective. less than 40% of the afghan aircraft are even functioning because they can't get the maintenance and they're not doing it. so they continue to lose. we spent $45 billion this year, and we're still losing. and remember, that's where the war on terror began. the biggest attack on american history started from afghanistan and unless you get it right, they can do it again.
5:28 am
brian: the problem is we've trained 330,000 afghan troops. but with it you don't like the relationships. you think it can be better between the troops and our people. in what way? >> yeah. maybe see them once or twice a week. it's almost drive by mentoring instead of making sure the afghans are paid at the right time. it's like we put someone on a ten speed bike without training wheels. we've had 17 commanders in 10 years. it seems to leave every few months. brian: abandon the population center theory of warfare. what does that mean? >> so the taliban makes money on drugs, gold, high value minerals. it's all about controlling terrain, ignoring the arteries of how people actually make money there. if you control the money flow in afghanistan, you control what happens on the ground.
5:29 am
brian: and mr. president, you say don't forget why we're there. al-qaeda, isis now, and the taliban. >> and 20 other terror organizations listed by the state department all reside in afghanistan. so, yes, the middle east is important, but it starts in afghanistan. it's still the center of all the bad people. and we're losing a few more troops. we had as many as 100,000 troops there. that didn't work. go to a different model that has worked for hundreds of years. brian: you would do it. >> absolutely. brian: so when called on, you would put professional fighters in there and have support with regular military. >> the most successful time america had success against afghanistan was the first 12 months when you had a few agency people, a few contractors, and a few soft guys. when it comes to more conventional. i've talked to many seals and they said we've hit them so hard in certain areas that the taliban would be coming in
5:30 am
surrendering for days after that. we don't do that anymore. this model would. brian: and this president would. thank you so much and thanks for your instant analysis for breaking news. coming up straight ahead in our final 30 minutes. if people come to our country seeking asylum, should then allowed to go back home? hear from someone who says absolutely not. and this week va secretary rolled out a new plan to help our vets. so what is that plan? peter reacts. i talked to the doctor a short time ago. he'll analyze

steve: fox news alert for you
5:34 am
this wednesday morning. president trump tweeted out he was nominating christopher wray as the new fbi director. ainsley: so the question is what is he and what is his background? brian: and who knew this was coming. with the story inside washington. hey, griff. >> hey, brian, ainsley, and steve. the president calls him a man of impeccable credentials. you may not know his name but in the legal world, he has quite a résume. first assistant attorney general under george w. bush in charge of the criminal division from 2003 to 2005 leading the investigations in prosecutions of scores of white-collar crimes. but most notably, he played a significant role in the justice department's response to 9/11 and the war on terrorism. a position, by the way, that receives senate confirmation. so he's been through this before. he first joined the department of justice in 2001 as an assistant deputy attorney general. he was a u.s. attorney for the northern district of georgia. and before that, as successful prosecutor. a lot of people will know, though, that he was governor
5:35 am
chris christie's attorney in the recent bridge gate scandal. that certainly may be for democrats once confirmation process begins. but currently, he's a lawyer at one of the top law firms call the premier law firm of king and spalding where he chairs the special matters and government investigations group. he's defended literally about anybody who has had a scandal in washington. he's had experience also before that with the federal courts, and he's argued before the 11th circuit court and the supreme court. he was a law clerk as well for judge michael who was sitting on the u.s. appeals court for the 4th circuit. that of course is the court causing headaches for the president's travel ban. and finally, he's a yale man bolt undergrad and law degree from yale university. ainsley: so you're saying he's smart. steve: thank you, griff.
5:36 am
it does appear appear he was interviewed at the end of may. so if the president has been sitting on this nomination for a while, perfect timing because tomorrow mr. comey appears there in the senate. the new york times just wrote that christopher wray is a safe mainstream pick from a president who not too long ago was considering politicians for a job, which historically not had politicians at the top of job. brian: that's an interesting take. i saw that he interviewed him yesterday. steve: the white house said that he was interviewed in late may. ainsley: may 30th our foxnews.com says may 30th. steve: one other observation according to the new york times because he was a former assistant attorney general overseeing the criminal division that would lay any fbi worker's fears that he would try to weaken or politicize the fbi because he's been in the trenches when he was at the department of justice. ainsley: all right. well, we're talking about one ivy leaguer at yale. we have another ivy leaguer waiting in the wings.
5:37 am
come on over our own pete. princeton, you're an athlete, and served our country. did two tours. so you know a thing or two about the va. and the senate is passing the va accountability act. you were involved in this from the very beginning. what does this act say and how does it help the military? >> well, it allows the military to actually fire workers at the va who are not doing their job. it's controversial in washington, d.c. because the union has such a grip in that town. what it does is shorten the process and gives the difference to the secretary. so like these employees that are fired can't be resurrected. we always do these stories. a year later, they got their job back. they got their job back. brian: or they get their pay and their pension. >> or they get their pay and their pension. this bill stops that. plus it gives additional protection to whistle-blowers. and the union hates it because it could set a precedent across government. a government job is internal life. you have it forever. so if you're a government worker, you could be fired. my former organization concerned veterans for america
5:38 am
helped the beginning on this. the house affairs committee jeff miller. but president obama was never going to sign it. so we had to work it and work it and work it for years. now president trump supports this and it's going to go to the house. brian: here's david earlier today. >> this bill is very important. it will allow me to make sure that we have the right people leading the va. that means that the people that have lost their values are going to need to leave. the va needs to change that this has been long overdue. this is really the president's leadership saying that when it comes to doing the right thing for our veterans, this is the top priority. we're going to treat this like a business, and we're going to get the job done. steve: well, he said essentially the bad actors would need to leave. would they be forced to leave? >> well, they have to. that's how change a culture. president trump understands that. brian: he can just walk in there and say fired, fired, fired. >> there's no government job
5:39 am
you can walk in and say fired, fired, fired. there's still going to be a process. but it's going to be shortened and the secretary defer defer to him. so it's not perfect. everyone -- i would love a bill where it's like the private sector if you're not doing your job, you're gone. you're not going to get that in the government. but this is close as it is. like sharon, she can't get her job back. steve: you're so excited about this. >> because vets deserve it. how long have we been waiting to get good care to these vets? brian: what about monday's announcements to electronic records? >> fantastic. brian: so when you leave the day after, your records leave with you and appear at the va. so the minute you leave military, they're at the va. >> how much common sense is that? washington doesn't do common sense. they spent billions trying to get those records to talk to each other. president trump comes in and says do it. and it happens. and we know how long veterans are waiting at hospitals. it's not fixed. it still has problems.
5:40 am
brian: also chairman of the secretary of defense and best friends with that general. >> it's not fixed. it's going to take time. ainsley: step in the right direction. >> yeah. ainsley: all right. thank you. >> nice to see you guys. brian: thank you very much. steve: here's a place right here where we can have a curvy couch and do the chitchatting and chilling. and we have jillian doing news. >> good morning, guys. good morning, pete, how are you? good morning to you at home as well. should immigrants seek asylum on american soil and then return home? be band from reentering the united states? chairman on the house committee rules texas republican pete sessions joined us earlier to weigh in. >> we must close all the loopholes, give secretary kelly that tool that he needs and to make sure that we protect this border. by those that would come to this country under i think false pretenses.
5:41 am
>> right now, there's a bill stuck in the house that would terminate a refugee status if they go back home. a woman is changing her story after suing a police department claiming she was racially profiled when an officer questioned her citizenship at a traffic stop. >> it was that i got profiled and that he wrote down my social security and it seemed very serious because what are you doing with those numbers? that is my identity. >> the dash cam video, though, tells a different story. >> you said you have progressive service? what's a contact number for you? why don't you just keep looking for it and then if you find it in the car, and i'll be with you in another couple minutes okay? >> police officer pulled her over for not having a front license plate. the cop says he followed protocol when asking for her social security. police launched an investigation, she dropped the lawsuit.
5:42 am
announcer jerry is stirring up controversy saying non-english speaking baseball players shouldn't get translators on the field. >> i don't think that should be legal. seriously. learn baseball language you know? it's pretty simple. i mean, you break it down pretty easy between pitching coach and pitcher. >> those comments happening after new york yankees pitcher japanese translator came to the mound during last night's game. this, by the way, coming the same day after philadelphia phillies legend mike schmidt said he didn't think the center fielder was a player he could build around because of a language barrier. he has since apologized for that comment. michael moore launching a website called trumpy leaks. he's calling on whistle-blowers to send him information about president trump and his administration. 9/11 director cannot 100%
5:43 am
guarantee lyric information will remain anonymous. and that's a look at your headlines. steve: if you're going to be a lyric, you want to make sure it's secret. >> you would think. steve: you would. all right. jillian, thank you. ainsley: coming up on what we just about the terrorist in that london attack is going to make you sick. new charmin ultra soft! it's softer than ever. new charmin ultra soft is softer than ever so it's harder to resist. okay, this is getting a little weird enjoy the go with charmin

your days of drowning people are numbered. same goes for you, budget overruns. and rising costs, wipe that smile off your face. we're coming for you, too. for those who won't rest until the world is healthier, neither will we. optum. how well gets done. brian: all right. some quick headlines right now that are going viral, according to ainsley and steve. a sailing team competing for america's cup gets catapulted into the water. some new zealand team members flying into the ocean, others left suspended in the air when it was left capsized in bermuda.
5:47 am
no one was hurt, and they're still in bermuda. and in a liquor store. look at this. the bird smashing $500 worth of wine and champagne after wandering into the store in los angeles. an animal control officer with a bit of a net had to catch and remove it. and a guy dressed as the tin man gets arrested for drunk driving in new york. stumbled on somebody's front yard. he was supposed to play as wizard of oz at a nearby party. ainsley: we have a fox news alert to tell you about the death toll in london and the terror attack there has now been risen to eight. steve: british police confirming the news just a short time ago after a body was found in the river. benjamin is live with the developments.
5:48 am
benjamin. >> hey, brian, steve, and ainsley. they've been scouring for who they believe was this 45-year-old missing frenchman. and as you say this takes the death toll from seven to eight. we're also learning about the terrorists themselves with people continuing to ask how they were able to flip through the net. we know thatted connections to the seven bombers in london and openly flaunted his connections. in the middle here with the iraqian or libyan dissent, he is the one unknown here. while on the right had been caught while trying to go to syria last year and told authorities i'm going to be a terrorist. the attackers also become a major issue as uk heads into general election tomorrow. prime minister teresa may declaring yesterday that she was now willing to rip up human rights laws and impose new restrictions on terror
5:49 am
suspects. if our human rights laws stop us from doing it, we'll change the laws so we can do it. >> see whether or not this incident on saturday impacts that election. we're also following another story for you. a strike out of syria yesterday. what we know so far is that u.s. air force hit some pro syrian pro assad forces backed by iran as they enter a deconfliction zone. now, as they entered this zone, they were, in fact, attacked by isis troops, and they brought in reinforcements including a tank, artillery, antiaircraft systems, as well as troops. the u.s. reached out to them and warned them to pull back, they were too close to u.s. forces and when they didn't, we know they destroyed those weapons. so it will be an interesting thing to see how that plans out out there. but it's a reminder how many groups operating in the area. and also the way that the u.s. warns them was through a russian deconfliction hotline.
5:50 am
so very confusing down there and a lot of connections people saying between the isis fight there and the rise and attacks in europe. brian: benjamin, if anybody knows things on the ground, it's you. you're actually on the ground and the first to see isis flourish in that area. years later, we're still trying to get them out. benjamin hall, thanks so much. ainsley: thank you, benjamin. steve: breaking news right now, president trump in the last hour revealing the name of the person he would like to replace james comey at the fbi. the very latest coming up next. brian: but first, let's go to bill who is now eliminated officially of being the next fbi director. the disappointment must be terrible. >> indeed it is. i'll be on radio with you later today. good morning to all three of you. another day, another terror hit. isis striking deep in the heart of iran. more of the breaking news of the possible fbi director that you just mentioned a moment ago. this as we wait of a significant hearing that begins in one hour. full analysis and how you should listen to this hearing today.

contemporaries in bridge gate. steve: that's what lawyers do. sometimes they have clients that are involved inform controversial things. you can't hold that against him, obviously. brian: i don't think so. steve: although, the judge was here and said that the democrats will try to have some of that bridge gate stuff stick to him. there he is we worked at the department of justice. brian was talking to eric prince who is a navy seal and founder of blackwater usa a little while ago, and he made a great observation about if this guy is going to be confirmed as the fbi director, he better be ready to fix things there. watch. >> he needs to take on the political correctness in the fbi. there's a lot of capable people there. but they're high bound with a lot of rules and a lot of political pressure. how many of these are terror attacks that we had in america that were known wolves, not lone wolves of people that were known to the fbi that had been under surveillance before but the data never made it uphill -- up the chain of command so there was actually a prosecution ahead of these attacks. steve: the new york times says
5:56 am
he's a safe mainstream pick until not long ago considering a politician. and also because he was at the department of justice, he should allay any fears that the people inside the fbi would have that president trump would try to weaken or politicize the federal bureau of investigation. ainsley: when he was assistant ag, he was appointed by president bush. he did represent chris christie. people are wondering is he a republican? republicans would be very happy if he does lean conservative. brian: so is james comey. james comey is republican. ainsley: the timing of this is different because tomorrow james comey will be speaking so the president is stealing the headlines by announcing he has a new pointy. brian: and making our show even more exciting. more fox and friends in just a t i was out here smoking instead of being there for my son's winning shot. that was it for me. that's why i'm quitting with nicorette. only nicorette mini has a patented fast dissolving formula. it starts to relieve sudden
