tv   Shepard Smith Reporting  FOX News  February 27, 2018 12:00pm-1:00pm PST

12:00 pm
>> shepard: it's noon on the west coast, 3:00 at the white house where president trump has talked about raising the minimum age for guns and banning bump stocks. no solid movement yet. so reporters just asked the press secretary to explain exactly which changes to gun laws the president does support. her answer ahead. and plus, the president's communication director hope hicks, meeting with house lawmakers. part of the investigation into russia's election interference. ahead, what we know about what she is saying and the questions she will not answer. in the senate, the head of the nsa on fighting back against moscow's meddling in our democracy. >> that paid no price for meddling in the 2016 election. >> they haven't paid a price
12:01 pm
sufficient to get them to change their behavior. >> the admiral says the administration has yet to give the go-ahead to take more action. the white house has just responded. the news is developing now. let's get to it. first from the fox news deck this tuesday afternoon, the russians are now trying to interfere with the 2018 mid-terms already. and six heads of intelligence agencies agree. they testified as much. so today the question, has the president directed the top man in u.s. cyber command to stop them. the answer, no. the director of national security agency said today president trump has not given him the power to disrupt russian cyber attacks targeting u.s. elections at their source. admiral mike rogers serves as the head of u.s. cyber command. he informed lawmakers on capitol hill that he needs additional
12:02 pm
authority to target the origins of the attacks. here's the exchange with jack reed of rhode island. >> the origin of these attacks have the authority to do so. >> if granted the authority. i don't have the day-to-day authority to do that. if granted the authority. >> so you would need to be directed by the president through the secretary of defense? >> yes. i mentioned that in my statement. >> have you been directed to do so given the strategic threat against the united states and the significance you have recognized? >> no. >> shepard: admiral has said he directed the cyber mission to start some work that is within his day-to-day authority. he did not give details saying it's classified. he's not asked for the additional authority. moments ago, the white house said nobody is denying him that authority. lawmakers pressing him on whether this administration is doing all it can to stop the russians. so the question, have we sent the message to russia?
12:03 pm
have we retaliated? do the russians get it? >> they have paid no price for meddling in 2016 election or -- >> they haven't paid a price that is sufficient to get them to change their behavior. >> well, they haven't paid any price so far as i can see, have they? >> you can argue the sanctions that have been imposed, you can also argue some of the indictments. again, i don't think it's fair to say nothing has been done. although you're getting way outside my lane as on operational commander, sir. >> it's been completely inadequate so far? >> it's not generated a change in behavior that we know we need. >> shepard: hasn't generated a change in behavior. in other words, they're still add it. last time they sent people here, organized rallies here, targeted advertising here and interfered in our democracy. top intelligence officials say russia is at it again trying to med until the mid-terms.
12:04 pm
it's fox's top story. catherine herridge is on it live from washington. >> thanks, shep. the hearing focused on the cyber command and meddling in the elections an rare public testimony. the operations guy said the russians felt no pain and no consequences for their actions. >> more broadly, not just the sanctions but more broadly, my concern is i believe that president putin has come to the conclusion there's little price to pay here. there's tools available to us. in fairness, you can't say nothing has been done but it's not enough. >> rogers said it's not one dimension dimensional. there's other punishments available. >> shepard: the white house responded at least in the briefing. >> sarah sanders said the administration is exploring a number of options.
12:05 pm
>> i can tell you we're looking at a number of different things that we can do to prevent this from happening. we're going to continue to be tough on russia. the president is open to looking at a number of different ways of making sure that russia doesn't meddle. >> using cyber tools offensively, admiral rogers testifying is like using a nuke in terms of getting the permissions from the president, the defense secretary on down and with fbi homeland security and the defense department all involved. one of the gaps we're seeing, which is intel speaker weaknesses, the speed of any response and the response has to have impact. to do that, the tradition or the history tells us it really has to be immediate, not months down the road, shep. >> shepard: catherine herridge live on capitol hill. thanks very much. the president is still railing against the russia investigation. just before one of his closest aides met with house lawmakers. we're hearing there's some questions which she refuses to answer. the president this morning fired
12:06 pm
off some tweets about the russia investigation. ended with one that read, witch hunt. those tweets came as hope hicks was getting ready to meet with the house intelligence committee behind closed doors. hope hicks started with the trump organization back in 2014. she became candidate trump's spokeswoman during the campaign and last year she took over as communications director when anthony scaramucci left after less than two weeks. her office is outside his. she's said to be very close. a big focus expected to be her role in the white house response to the trump tower meeting with a russian lawyer. in that meeting, donald trump jr. senior adviser/son-in-law jared kushner and paul manafort were all there. donald trump jr.'s own e-mails
12:07 pm
knew the lawyer was offering dirt on hillary clinton. a few weeks ago, a "new york times" -- "the new york times" reported that former spokesman for the trump legal team was ready to tell the special counsel that hope hicks told president trump that those e-mails will never get out. her lawyer denied that. our chief white house correspondent john roberts picks up the story. hi, john. >> shep, good afternoon to you. like paul manafort before her when he appeared before the house intelligence committee, hope hicks refusing to answer questions about her time here at the white house. it's a move that many attorneys say is prudent. you don't want to be described as privileged setting. it's easy for someone to go up to capitol hill to say that look, that's a question that involves my deliberations with the president and i'm not going to answer that question. the white house when asked about her testimony today wouldn't say much. listen here. >> as is always the case, i'm not going to comment on any
12:08 pm
individual's interactions with the committee. we are cooperating. the president has said there's in collusion and we're going to continue to cooperate and -- >> why do you refuse to answer the question -- >> i'm not going to comment on any specific interactions with the committee. >> hope hicks was at the center of the response to that meeting that donald trump jr. had with the russian attorney aboard air force one in hamburg, germany. they were crafting the explanation that the meeting was to describe a piece of legislation that led to russia banning american adoptions. as we discovered, the meeting was about more than that, it was about some dirt that this rush attorney had on the clinton campaign. a former member, spokesman for president trump's former outside legal team, march carallo was expected to tell robert mueller when he met with the special
12:09 pm
investigator's office, the office of special counsel, that hope hicks said during that conference call aboard air force one when they discussed how to respond, that donald trump jr.'s e-mails would never get out despite what we believe would have been carallo's assertions that that happened. hope hicks attorney, robert trout, said that didn't happen and provoking a rare public response. he wrote "as most reporters know, it's not my practice to comment in response to questions from the media. this warrants a response. she never said that. the idea that hope hicks suggested that e-mails or other documents would be seal or destroyed is completely false." she's about as close to the president you can get. clearly in terms of their working relationship, that's been true for a number of years. in terms of the lay of the land here at the white house, i've been to her office. here's the door to the oval office and hope hicks is right
12:10 pm
there. one of her walls is one of the walls of the oval office. she's very close to the president. >> shepard: clearly. another of the big topics in the wake of the shooting in florida is guns. the white house said president trump does still support raising the minimum age to buy certain weapons. president did not mention that during his session with our nation's governors yesterday which led to reports that he changed his mind after a lunch with nra leaders. in the two weeks since the high school massacre in south florida, president trump has float add few ideas. they include arming some teachers and others that get special training. that's something that the nra does support. many teachers say they do not. also banning bump stocks, which the president said he will do himself in congress does not. the nra reports it's against any ban. and i reported on raising the age to buy semiautomatic weapons from 18 to 21. another idea the nra has
12:11 pm
rejected. the number 2 senate republican john cornyn said if you can be listed in the military at 18, i'm not sure i understand the 21 age. he goes on, i think there's better ways to address it than just an arbitrary age increase. senator cornyn and the dick tick senator chris murphy are sponsoring a bill to strengthen the national instant criminal background check system. the bill would penalize agencies that don't report records that officials use to decide if somebody can buy a gun. the president supports that bill. senate minority leader chuck schumer says lawmakers need to do more. senator schumer and other democrats are calling for universal checks. >> it's outrageous that so many guns are sold with no background checks whatsoever. whether you're a felon, an adjudicated mentally ill,
12:12 pm
spousal abuser. outrageous. we should close those loop holes and close them now. >> the white house says the president plans to meet with lawmakers tomorrow to talk about specific changes to gun laws. let's go back to john roberts at the white house. john? >> we're told by sarah huckabee sanders the press secretary a short time ago at the briefing, the white house will have specific policy proposals to announce later on this week. the president does support the cornyn-murphy bill to improve the reporting system for background checks and supports the stops school violence act. what is unclear is his idea on raising the minimum age to buy a long gun, which would include rifles and the various incarnations of those and shotguns as well from 18 to 21. the president tweeted about it last week. he talked about it in the meeting that he had with students, marjory stoneman douglas high school among other people.
12:13 pm
curiously he didn't mention it at cpac and probably came up with wayne lapierre and chris cox sunday be up didn't mention it in the governor's meeting yesterday. i asked sarah huckabee sanders where the president stands on this and would he be willing to go toe to toe with the nra over this. listen. >> the nra remains firmly opposed to this idea of raising the age for long guns. the president said yesterday that they're not always with you. sometimes you have to fight them. is he willing to take on the nra on this idea of raising the minimum age for buying a long gun? >> the president still supports raising the age limit to 21 for the purchase of certain firearms. we're meeting with members of congress tomorrow. we expect that to be a topic of discussion. he knows everybody doesn't necessarily agree. we won't get into the details on the specifics but we expect that to be part of the conversation tomorrow. >> the president's big idea,
12:14 pm
shep, is to train and arm certain qualified members of faculty and staff at schools to carry guns. paul ryan, the speaker, said he's not opposed to that idea. the federal government should stay out of it and that should be a local issue. there are a handful of states across the nation, texas being one of them that allow teachers to do that. this has been a local issue. a sort of thing we don't know in the president will pursue on the federal level. the president said you can do this at almost no cost and get effective protection. >> shepard: thanks john. more on interference with our elections and congress to root out the problem at the source in russia with only mid-terms months away. that's coming up from the fox news deck. this is fox news channel, america's choice for news and information on cable. ♪

(avo) beneful grain free. out with the grain, in with the farm-raised chicken. healthful. flavorful. beneful. >> shepard: continuing coverage on the top story. russia's meddling in our elections and how the government is or is not responding. let's turn to jordan fabian. good to see you. >> good to see you, too. >> shepard: might as well start with hope hicks. john roberts was explaining how close she is and has been to president trump. whatever happens today, she's already spoken with bob mueller, right? >> that's what we heard, that
12:18 pm
interview happened. this happened. it's frustrating to lawmakers. she's been with the president since he entered the presidential campaign. so she has a wide range of knowledge about everything that happened on the campaign and key events that happened at the white house, including in response to this meeting at trump tower with donald trump jr. and russian officials. lawmakers in addition to the special counsel's team will want to hear about what she has to say about that. right now she's not answering questions on that front. >> shepard: can you explain how it is that lawmakers bring you in, ask you questions and you won't answer them? under what pretense does she's not answer them? >> the reason that steve bannon cited is that the white house might expert executive privilege over some of the events that happened at the white house during the transition. so he preempted that. he received a subpoena from the
12:19 pm
house intelligence committee to answer the questions. what is not clear right now, the house intelligence committee will do the same thing, take that step in subpoenaing hope hicks. we'll have to see. >> for clarity, regarding executive privilege, it must be asserted before it can be used. >> that's correct. so the white house hasn't said that it has asserted executive privilege yesterday in these proceedings. what the people under questioning are doing are sort of saying preemptively i've not going to answer the questions in case the privilege is exerted. they're doing this dance here with language. the bottom line is, they're not answering the questions that the lawmakers want to hear. >> shepard: what is the reporting specifically on why the president has not directed those who were testifying today to try to stop the russians from
12:20 pm
interfering in our democracy? >> sarah huckabee sanders was asked about this in today's briefing. she didn't give a clear answer. she has said that nobody told them they can't do it. what mike rogers was saying, he needs direct approval to attack these cyber attacks at the source. she said it a number of other ways. the trump administration is going after russia but didn't give a clear explanation why the president hasn't granted that nsa authority. >> shepard: has the president asked the russians publicly to stop? by tweet or at a podium? what is the reporting on that? >> we're told behind closed doors, he's asked vladimir putin about the hacking and asked him to knock it off. he spoke about this publicly at one point where he said, you know, i asked vladimir putin if he was responsible for the russian meddling. he told me he wasn't. you know, he was very convincing. that sort of where the president
12:21 pm
is on this. that's been frustrating to some democrats and republicans in congress that want to see a more aggressive approach from the president in trying to come bad that meddling ahead of the 2018 mid-terms. >> shepard: the president's appointients indicted 13 russians for meddling. since then, the president has not directed them to stop meddle something. >> shepard: that's right. no direction. there's some things going on at the cabinet level but nothing from president. >> shepard: thanks, jordan. as always, appreciate it. the news continues after this. you know what's awesome? gig-speed internet.
12:22 pm

12:25 pm

how russia is standing in the way of my cease fire. >> moscow is fuelling all parties in syria, the syrian regime, iran, turkey, the united states and other coalition partners. >> meantime, the 200-page u.n. report that outlines how north korea has been skirting sanctions and sending components to syria for chemical weapons comes as the white house accused syria of employing chlorine bombs. sarah sanders said as much yesterday. the syrian air force doesn't 19 chlorine. they have killed about 500 civilians in less than a week bombing the very suburb of damascus where they used serin gas in 2015. >> neil: and how about the bases
12:30 pm
in serial? >> after the iran deal, they have been sending missiles and setting up bases. >> increasing quantity and quality of their ballistic missiles and the export about movement of those to other groups and locations around the region. >> fox news obtained these satellite images showing what is believed to be a new iranian base eight miles northwest of damascus. two new hanger there's. inside them western intelligence sources are tell us are missiles that can reach all of israel. >> there's reports that we've seen facilities being built in syria, reports in open source iranian missile facilities. >> culture in iran is not one of their missions. that being said, one of the most effective things we can do in this area is build strong

12:37 pm
to buy rifles from 18 to 21 in florida. create a three-day waiting period for people just trying to buy them in florida. florida already has the rules in place for hand guns. the new bill would be for long guns and let each county in the state of florida decide whether trained teachers should be allowed to carry concealed weapons in school. it does not include a democratic amendment aimed at banning what they call assault weapons. criticism continues to grow over the response to the stoneman douglas shooting. the broward county officials say that there are several investigations underway right now. on that, we have team fox coverage. mike emanuel is on capitol hill. let's go to parkland florida where phil keating is standing by live. >> we're told as the minutes as the shooting was unfolding, some

12:39 pm
to accept. >> and dispatch records show that over the past decade or so, deputies were called to the house cruz and his mother and younger brother shared at least 45 times for reports like mentally ill person, domestic disturbance and child elderly abuse. about half of those calls were for the younger brother. shep? >> shepard: phil keating in parkland. thank you. now capitol hill where lawmakers are calling for changes to the country's gun laws. mike emanuel is live there now. mike? >> shep, good afternoon to you. i should note that we have students from parkland, florida that are making the rounds demanding action from lawmakers. we got video some of of the students going to paul ryan's house. they're not speaking to reporters and going face to face to lawmakers at a time when gun measures are being debated. the one with the most bipartisan
12:40 pm
support is on strengthening background checks. it's backed by john cornyn and democratic senator chris murphy. it would offer rewards to ago it ises to get them to send information to the criminal background system. >> what senator cornyn has suggested is take something that we all agree on, not claiming it's a panacea, but show some progress towards dealing with one element of the problem. >> mcconnell said the focus of the luncheon was on school safety and not on firearms. >> shepard: what else are democrats saying, mike? >> democrats are clearly concerned that republicans and democrats will come together and pass this background check legislation and that republicans may want to move on to other issues. senate democratic leader chuck schumer said that won't be enough to keep our american schools safe and won't be keeping a promise lawmakers have
12:41 pm
made to the students from parkland, florida. schumer is pressing for doing more. >> rather than just passing one narrow bill and moving on, we democrats intend to push our republican colleagues to have a real debate on gun safety and pass meaningful measures that will address the wide range of problems that have led to an epidemic of mass shootings in our country. >> there are a lot of ideas about how to address the problems. it's not entirely clear that democrats are unified on what they want to debate. >> shepard: thanks, mike. let's go to zeke miller. where do we go from here? >> the senators want the white house to lay out a clear marker. the president has said they've been listening. they've had all of the listening sessions, whether it be the
12:42 pm
governors yesterday, survivors or those from last week, lawmakers coming to the white house tomorrow on this. lawmakers have told us, told my colleagues on capitol hill that they want to hear from the president what he wants to do legislatively and the white house isn't ready to put that marker down yet. >> shepard: is there any legislation in the works? >> there's the cornyn legislation. but the white house is not answering basic questions about that. the house version includes conceal carry reciprocity. if that were to make its way to the senate bill as well, democrats would view that largely as a poison pill and probably wouldn't go very far. so there are lots of questions about that specific piece of legislation. we heard the president saying last week he wants to talk about raising the minimum age for purchasing rifles the same way that florida is considering
12:43 pm
right now. the white house backed off of that a little bit or changed the focus -- >> shepard: not -- well, today sarah sanders said no, the president is for that. at any rate, lest anyone thing this is just republicans that are not interested in any of this, democrats the last time these issues came up as well, many democrats against this as well. this is not a completely partisan matter. those that were for no changes to gun laws are on both sides of the aisle. >> that's exactly right, shep. forgive me if that was the impresentation i gave. >> shepard: not you. it's not democrats or republicans. it's not true. >> that's right. if you look back in that fight in 2013 after sandy hook, it was that weird -- that interesting crossover that we've seen in washington the last several years of a lot of red state democrats that face tight re-elections and more hawkish on gun laws and some bluer state
12:44 pm
republicans, moderate republicans willing to cross the aisle and work with democrats back then. those dynamics in washington haven't changed that much. for both parties and sadly this has been the case on a bunch of issues these days, they like -- even if it's using this as a political item in an election year. the impetus to get something done isn't that high when it's easier to cast a partisan bomb on television. >> shepard: thanks, zeke. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> shepard: ahead, what it's like when dad's a conservative and daughter is very much not. >> we disagree on so many minutes that i can't grab one right now. >> it's not always the best, but we still love each other and we know that. >> shepard: oh, family. we'll introduce you to one where politics is quite personal. that's next. morning on the beach was so peaceful.
