3:02 am
this evening. ed: special election. pete: we this channel will be covering the speech. mind set on the other side of the world. big news breaking at the end of this week that it looks like that guy on the left and that guy on the right might be meeting face to face before the month of may comes to fruition. the president tweeted about it yesterday. new information about that potential meeting saying this: he said the deal with north korea is very much in the making and will be, if completed, a very good one for the world time and place to be determined. so, still a lot of open-ended issues on this particular meeting. it looks like it will happen. rachel: there are some concessions leading up to the meeting. so, kim jong un said that they will meet in two months; however, they have to stop all their tests between now and then. ed: we told them to stop. rachel: we are continuing our sanctions. nothing is going to be let up other times in other agreement. those things have not been
3:03 am
in place. ed: wait, hang on. you are saying there might be peace? because i have been following along for the last year and i heard the president was starting world war iii: maybe his strategy is playing out well? pete: maybe brinksmanship works. maybe deals are made through pressure when you tell them you are going to be. >> peace through strength. pete: as opposed to peace through weakness. ed: obama official felipe top aide and senior advisors to hillary clinton when she was secretary of state was on fox last night saying he didn't like the way president obama approached north korea either. >> i have always thought, when i worked for the obama administration, i hated the way we handled north korea. i hated the way bush did. it was always treating them like they deserved to be treated as an equal. i thought we should just ignore them. i, at one point, wanted to say if you can't launch a
3:04 am
rocket that doesn't reach the outer atmosphere, we're not going to talk about you. but president trump, you know, he inherited something a little different. he inherited north korea at a time when they have been harder to ignore. ed: that was remarkable bit of truth there. if you listen closely i always thought as a senior state department advisor in the obama administration it's best to ignore kim jong un. that's largely what the obama administration was doing. rachel: right. ed: as he said himself, president trump inherited this. rachel: also, he was a former clinton person as well. clinton had the same strategy as barack obama. and we saw the system work. the state department and their experts are always saying we know the way to handle these kind of guys like kim jong un. and the truth is, he is just a bully. throw out the script from the state department and follow your gut. that's what the president has done and that's why we are here now.
3:05 am
pete: felipe responsible for russia reset button. ed: be fair to him. pete: he said in there treating them like they deserve to be treated as an equal. that's such a difference between this white house and the obama administration. whether it's north korea, iran. even the u.n., they look at the u.n. and say everyone is equal. and trump is saying no. america is a strong, powerful country that should lead in this world and that really matters. ed: speaking of the obama white house susan rice is back. new book coming out that says she told the white house cyber team to, quote: knock it off when they floated various tough options to go after russian meddling in the 2016 election. this is fascinating because all we keep hearing is two things. that donald trump is as a candidate was colluding with the russians. we don't have any evidence of that yet number one and number two we are hearing donald trump as president hasn't done anything to stop russian aggression heading into the mid terms. now this book is suggesting
3:06 am
wait a second, the obama people knew this was going on anddo anything. rachel: susan rice and president obama must like talk about this because his famous strategy he called putin and told him to knock it off. same words that she used. remember that? knock it off. this is not how you handle these kinds of situations and i will say that, you know, the more we know, the more we are learning about the obama administration, the more we are seeing that they probably could have done more. pete: that's exactly right. they didn't think it would have an impact in the outcome of the election. they also, most importantly, thought hillary clinton was going to win the election. and wouldn't ultimately matter. now it's coming back that when it mattered the most, the obama team did not take on the russians in their attempt to meddle in our elections. that's very different than collusion u joel rosenberg, the author of the kremlin conspiracy says it's almost incomprehensivable that did nothing to stop the
3:07 am
meddling. >> it's incomprehensible that general election that a national security advisor would tell a team of people dealing with russian attack, aggressive attacks, rethey were relengthlessly hitting us from every possible direction, and this team of government officials were trying to figure out a, how to stop it. then how to counter it then possibly how to punish the russians to make sure they would stop it for good. national security advisor of president obama tells them to stand down, back off? and essentially in the end they did practically nothing. >> they knew the russians were targeting multiple states, specifically swing states. i will say to be fair, ed, which i do every once in a while. ed: i like hearing that. pete: probably thought if they went too hard in one direction it would perceived a political motive. ed: that they were helping hillary clinton. pete: they could be helping hillary clinton. ed: there is something to be said for the obama administration trying to figure out how do we do this? also, this book is saying that susan rice felt like if
3:08 am
we struck back too hard on russia on the eve of the election it might inflame it to the point that they might do more damage to our election. pete: you got to do something. rachel: i think conservatives would be a lot more understanding of what happened during the obama years if the obama administration hadn't had its fingers so much in trying to say that trump colluded with the russians. >> correct. if they didn't boomerang it back around. ed: another thing talked about in the campaign double standard where hillary clinton and the email server was not secure and yet there was this navy sailor who got in a lot of trouble. faced criminal charges. christian saucier, you see him right there, the president yesterday decided i'm going to do something about it he promised it. pete: this sailor took a couple photos of his classified submarine innocuous columbusly so. rachel: almost like a memory. memory. pete: he got hit with a year in prison. rachel: and house arrest.
3:09 am
pete: his record has been tainted. he has been pardoned and sarah sanders the press secretary talked about it. listen. >> the president has pardoned christian saucier a navy submarine. mr. saucier was 22 years old at the time of his offenses and has served out his 12 month sentence. he has been recognized by fellow service members for dedication, skill and patriotic spirit. while serving he regularly mentored younger sailors and served as instructor for new recruits. the judge found that mr. saucier's offense stansdz military service. the president is appreciative of mr. saucier's service to the country. rachel: speak spoke with christian saucier last week. let's take a look at what he said. >> obviously two different sets of laws in this country. the politically elite and low every level individuals, americans like myself. i think that's very upsetting on a basic level for most people. it should be, at least, that a different standard of justice is applied.
3:10 am
i think my case draws a very clear example of that. obviously, president trump firmly believes that, you know, i was overpunished. i mean, he mentioned it numerous times before and after being elected. and i think that president trump, you know, i think he knows that in my heart i understand i made a mistake and i accept the responsibility for it. pete: pretty cool story. he already served in prison and done his time. he wants a clean record to move forward. rachel: very remorseful. unlike hillary clinton, he took full responsibility for what he did. he said did it wrong thing. here is a picture of his wife -- do we have that one? there it is from their facebook page. he gets to be now with his wife and daughter. he has been on house arrest. now he gets to go outside with them. he missed the death of his grandmother. ed: we're going to talk to him this morning the:15 eastern time he will be here. pete: very cool when you see someone who was treated maybe it was supposed to but
3:11 am
mistreated when you compare to the ways others were treated. ed: double standard. rachel: we want equal justice under the law: turning now to your headlines. we begin with a fox news alert. a california police officer shot and killed and another injured during a standoff with a person barricaded inside of a home. right now it's unclear whether the suspect involved is at large. los angeles homicide detectives are on the scene assisting in the investigation in pa mona we nowf three hostages killed in hours long standoff inside the country's largest veterans home. jennifer and christine and jennifer gonzalez were found inside the building in unitville, california north of napa. albert wong shot himself. he was kicked out of the

piatt pete as debate over guns continues, one georgia town is requiring every homeowner own a gun. ed: one murder in the last six years. boasts a crime rate of less than 2%. what's the city doing right and should other cities take note? here with more the mayor. pete: of kennesaw, georgia mr. easterling. this is ordnance passed in 1982 i believe in response to a town in illinois that had banned guns inside their
3:16 am
city. so your citizens are required to have maintain a gun in their home. what has the impact of this policy been in your town? >> well, it's hard to say. good morning ed and. pete: pete good morning. >> hard to say what the gun law does specifically for our crime rate. it has to be looked at as a collaborative piece with our community engagement, with how well our police force does with that aspect of policing. the community policing. the citizen's police academy. all the things that we do to engage the community. ed: now my understanding, mr. mayor, is that it is not actually enforced. you don't send the police to every home in your city and say show me your gun. it's basically deter because criminals out there who either live in your city or are in a nearby city know hey, if the head of household is required to have a gun, i don't want to go rob those people. isn't that right? >> yes, sir.
3:17 am
that is correct. it's not enforced. and there are some outs for the consciou. connell: for the conscientious objector not to have a gun. pete: what would this tell us about the gun debate? what happened in parkland has triggered that some say more guns keep us safer. would that be argument that armed and equipped citizenry properly educated and able to defend themselves? >> actually, i think it's when citizens are engage you had, when the community sen is engaged as a whole. and people accept responsibility and are responsible or held accountable for their actions. i think that's what makes the biggest difference in how community handles different situations. and then what happens in that community. i don't think it's -- ed: pardon me, mr. mayor, is it also that one size fits
3:18 am
all doesn't work? because after these tragedies we often hear we need to pass this national law that does this everywhere. when maybe the lesson from your city is this works in your local community and give the power to local communities? >> yes, sir. that's absolutely the right thing to do. give it back to the people. you know, the local community needs to handle what they know how to handle. pete: so, mr. mayor, taking your point, a great one with community engagement with police because it is a very important layer. would you recommend that other cities in america pass a similar type of law. asking their citizens be armed in their homes? >> i think the elected officials need to listen to the people. if that's what they are asking for, then that's what they need to do. but it has to be right for the community. it's not me dictating. it's not another elected official dictating. it's all about what does the community want? ed: so why did the community enact this in 1982?
3:19 am
what's the context of why all the sudden, i assume it was a previous mayor because you are a young guy. who enacted that. >> thank you for that. [laughter] pete: he throws out compliments all the time. >> thanks a lot. you know, it was in response to the city of martin grove, illinois, banning guns within their city limits. they wanted -- i believe they wanted to know the city of ken saw wanted t to-kennesaw you can require hermine to be a responsible city and take responsibility for your actions. pete: i know it's not apples to apples, i have looked at political science. i would be interested in looking at the crime rate of illinois one murder, 2% in the last six years. not a perfect comparison. certainly you feel like this is part of what contributes to having a safer community on your end.
3:20 am
>> yes, sir, i do. it is part of it. but it's a small part of it. because the city of kennesaw is a progressive, inclusive city. and we're really good at communicating. ed: all right, mayor derek easter ling, power to the great people. thank you for joining us. >> thank you all. have a blessed day. ed: you too. the trump economy keeps on booming. biggest gains in months. what does it mean for you? we will analyze next. pete: those looking for love are now uniting in hate for president trump. the liberal love site for all you resisters out there taking the internet by storm coming up. we will bring it to you. sign up quick ♪ you give love a bad name ♪ you give love ♪ a bad name ♪

3:26 am
labor force, said look, the economy is good enough, i think, to go back and look for a job and most of them actually found a job; rachel: you call this a goldilocks economy. what does that mean? >> you are right. investigators call this is a goldie lock's economy as well. not too hot, not too cold. wage growth was lacking a little bit at only 2.6%. we like to see wages higher above 3% if we can. but, that's not good for middle americans who want to see their wages increased. that's good for the stock markets because the federal reserve will keep interest rates low so long as wages are not increasing at a rapid pace, also signaling that inflation is subdued for the, you know, the short time. ed: heather, you are right. i heard some analysts saying yesterday wage growth could have been better. certainly where wages have been over the last few
3:27 am
years, it's an upward trend which is positive. means more money in people's paychecks. you put that together with the trump tax cut. and the bonuses that nancy pelosi called the crumbs. it's interesting that in the last few days nancy pelosi started walking that back and saying if somebody gets a bonus that great. we're glad. this economy is pretty good and may have an interesting impact on the mid terms. >> you are right. democrats will have to re-examine their message into the mid terms if they are slamming tax cuts, because, most polls are showing that trump -- president trump's approval ratings on the economy and taxes are jumping by double digits, ed. so that's a big deal. and even though you may not like the president, but you have got to like his policies coming out of washington in terms of a pro-growth agenda, deregulatory agenda. it's great for small businesses. it's great for the stock market. and the economy. and that's what matters.

of the direct fire brigadier general anthon anthony anthony a time attachment has president trump's reproach rhetorically or otherwise brought this meeting about. >> clearly when they say they go low we go high u kim jong un derisive messed things up over there translators have a difficult time translating speech certain tense used. this would be the first time the leader of north korea has left the country in decades u for them it's kind of like hollywood if you are going to go sit at somebody else's table that's deferring to their power. pete: where would a meeting like this happen south korea? >> the latest is possibly sweden. possibly. we have no idea. pete: we shall see. rebecca, what is the outcome we would want? such high stakes talk. ultimately, what looks like a win for the united states if something like this
3:34 am
happens? >> well, trump has made that pretty clear. a win is denuclearization. that's agreed to by china. that's what president moon in south korea wants and that's what kim jong un has agreed to at least talk b from my perspective i want to see these tests stop. kim has only done a few very preliminary test of his really good long range missiles. it's like a quarterback just throwing a few footballs on the sidelines. he has never taken a snap in the nfl. that missile arsenal is under tested and we want to keep it that way. we wants more noe more tests. pete: a freeze, road map backwards. it's got to be transparent top to bottom. >> it does. we have to have inspections here. this could take some time to lay out. president moon in south korea has made clear it will be a road map. it will take time and this when s. what trump will work on. big credit to tillerson and mattis who have made this diplomacy work and gotten us to this break through moment. pete: exercises which will
3:35 am
continue as these talks happen. how does our military view this and what role might the military have. >> the military views it, pete, as a consistent application of the elements of national power. you never want to lead with the chin of the american soldier, sailor airman or marine. we have diplomatic of power synchronized by general h.r. mcmaster, general kelly and general mattis. who understand and been trained on the synchronization of national power. they know we don't lead with the chin of the american service member. i think that's the key part here. and as we move forward what the military will continue to do is flexible deterrent options on the korean peninsula so that we will fly the b 1 and b-2 bombers. we will continue to have strike groups move throughout japan and military exercises there was no concession made here to have this meeting or negative, so moving forward, the military will continue to do what it's done.
3:36 am
the other thing that's happened is we bought a year of preparation in case we need to go to war in north korea. pete: very interesting. michael, you wrote the book on the father of kim jong un. bring us inside the caucus they are makincalculation on th. sticking chin out with military saying we are ready to use force if we have to. >> this is the possibility of ending the korean war. it's armistice and that would be a huge win for both sides that would codify status quo. obviously not fighting. right away you could have something that's a major peaceful accomplishment with both sides having effectively given up nothing. pete: rebecca we have seen talk of talks happen before and another missile launch, something else. what should we do if immediately kim jong un does something that is against any sort of agreement? >> if he launches a missile, he is in big trouble. it's time for the bloody nose option, i agree with michael, i would like to see a peace treaty here if possible. we need to keep that firm
3:37 am
military pressure on and keep the sanctions on. kicker is how do we guarantee north korea's security in this process. we have done the sticks. what are the care rots going to be. pete: absolutely. general, last word. we have got some skepticism about deals because we saw the iran deal where they seem to be on a path inevitably to nuclear weapons. do you believe that a deal could be struck that could actually denuclearize here? >> i do believe that we should never under estimate ththe dethe left's desire to see the world burn down. all the individuals i previously mentioned plus secretary tillerson and ambassador haley and all the folks are on the ground doing the right thing, leveraging those elements of power and that maximum pressure that they talk, about that's those elements of power being brought to bear and we can get a deal. pete: maximum pressure versus strategic patience. seems to have brought about the opportunity for talks. michael, rebecca, general, thank you. great panel, we might have to have them back when developments come along.

this now. she is attempting to change her image doing a lot of native american events recently. to turn the conversation. until she takes a d.n.a. test how can she really affirm she has that heritage background. >> it's obviously the problem, pete. >> i've been asking for this and other people have been asking her to take this d.n.a. test for at least six years since she first ran for the senate. during the first campaign, i got a pen that she had put in her mouth. we took the cap and sent it off to a d.n.a. company. hoping that we could get proof one way or the other but unfortunately we couldn't. so, this is nothing new, this demand. the difference this time is that it is, as you say, a very liberal newspaper, the berkshire eagle asking for this. they wrote it in a rather snarky way, too. which is not something that she expects. i mean, they said if it turned out that she wasn't telling the truth, if she admitted it, it would be a,
3:47 am
quote, testimonial to her integrity in truthfulness. i can't say that she is almost 70 years old. rachel: right. >> she has been a white woman basically for all but nine of those years from 1986 to 1995. and those were the years in which she got the two at the present you'red professorships at ivy league law schools. rachel: howie, that's an important point. you are saying you want her to take a spit test, a d.n.a. test. i say she needs to release her employment applications from penn state and harvard law school. she claims she did not use her native american, you know, status to get those jobs and tenure. and i find that highly suspect. >> exactly, rachel. that's exactly the point. they say well, she never used her quote unquote native american heritage to get these positions on the faculty at penn and harvard. but they refuse to release the documents. and harvard, when harvard
3:48 am
law school was criticized for not having any women of color on the faculty, they pointed to her. and so it's obvious that she has used this in the past. and now, however, she never refers to herself as a native american. she is in the oklahoma hall of fame that's her native state and describes herself as oaky down to her toes. an okie is not a native american it's a white person came in during the land rush. pete: if she is, great, if she is not, who cares. the reality is you are misrepresenting it to get access and benefit yourself and universities are holding it up. that's the issue. it's using a minority status to leverage it and get advantages that otherwise would not. what is the likelihood that she will take this test which you are calling for and how significant is it if she does not? can she run for president if she doesn't settle this issue? >> she didn't have a problem
3:49 am
in massachusetts. and we continually raised it in the 2012 election and her opponents in re-election campaign aren't raising it. they are leaving it to us in the media to do it. i don't think she can really seriously run for president. there are too many other candidates that don't have this skeleton in the closet. and, pete, i don't think there is any way she will ever take the test. the berkshire eagle also suggest that what many of us have long suspected that she probably has taken the test and if she had irrefutable evidence that had native american blood even 1/32nd, it would be out there already. rachel: i agree with that. pete: radio talk show host and author. we'll keep on their. i'm going to take my heritage d.n.a. test. i'm not kidding. on the show i will be taking one. i think i'm norwegian. we will find out. 8:20 i will be taking that test. if senator warren would like to take it with me, she is

4:06 am
about. rachel: and republicans in congress. ed: devin nunes and others who have been exposing this fisa abuse. what jeff sessions is say something reasonable. the inspector general at the justice department has been looking at just not the fisa abuse but other problems. the inspector general. rather than short circuit this process. let me get this report soon. it better be soon by the way. because we have been hearing for months and months this report is coming. there are republicans like the president who feel like this is stall ball. pete: worried they don't have the same subpoena power as special counsel. ed: just a report. jeff sessions is saying get me that report. and then i will act on that and that might mean a special counsel who does have prosecutorial power to investigate crimes. pete: it all kind of blurs together. i thought michael horowitz was investigating for the most part the hillary clinton email investigation. >> how it was handled by the

fbi. pete: this is about the fisa court which could require a new pivot on that investigation. ed: true, involves many of the same players at the fbi and justice department. the bruce ohrs of the world. andrew mccabe, former deputy director. and by the way mr. james comey tweeting out there. getting ready for book tour. his conduct is going to be very much under the microphone. rachel: i understand what you are saying, ed, we should wait -- there is a good reason to wait for the ig report. get the facts so it doesn't look political. on the other hand, if the ig report comes out, we also need to do the special counsel because there are things that the special counsel can do that the ig cannot do. ed: sure. rachel: that is call certain witnesses. and so, you know, no matter what the trump administration does, it's going to look political. so, why not just get it out there. there has been so much that has been hidden that we don't know about that we would never have known about had hillary clinton been elected. that i think the american people just need to see the facts. we're not stupid. lay the facts out. we can read it.

4:26 am
ethan bearman, welcome. ethan, start with you, what is a beta male for our viewers who may not be familiar with the term. >> well, i think the way it's being used in this context is very much that these are men who are caring, they are not worried about being overly aggressive or hyper masculinized, exhibiting large muscles and being aggressive. they are being kind and caring and working together and cooperating and that's the emphasis is that. rachel: okay. and kevin. >> oh my goodness. rachel: ethan, real quick, do we need beta males? does society need more of them? >> of course we do. absolutely. here is what it is alpha males had a place evolution narrowly we had to develop alpha male traits. men aggressive out hunting. we are a civilized society where we have peace. we want to cooperate. we don't need war. we don't need the violence. so we are trying to dial that back there is a real balance here. this cover on hollywood reporter, kevin, is revenge

of the in other words from the 1980s -- nerds. >> i completely agree that's what the beta male is a nerd. on alpha males i'm glad fox called knee represent you. i know the rock's agent is probably mad at me because he didn't get that call or maybe continue zell. the beta male, alpha male was needed sounds like unions no longer needed. the alpha male is the male. that's what males are. and to try to make something into the beta male is ridiculous. the definition you just gave is the definition of being a man. men are -- we have all the feelings and emotions of women. you know what? the difference with the alpha male is we understand that there are times when you have to stand up for something. and i will tell you something, most women in america will agree with me, i'm not going to put rachel on the spot. they want an alpha male. they want a guy who is going to get up in the middle of the night and check for that bump and make sure that there is no thief in the house. they don't want to be nudged

4:47 am
control everything and mostly everybody. >> white folks are going down. >> and farrakhan, by god's grace, has pulled the cover off of that satanic jew. ed: opinion writer jeremy hunt joins us now. jeremy, what do you think is happening here? >> honestly, definitely a dark moment for our nation when we see someone like louis farrakhan has a legacy of bigotry. basically we can see how he is so closely associated with leaders in our nation. and worst part of it all is we see the radio luck tans of the media to really talk about it. this is something that we should be able to stand up and say that racism has no skin color. hate is hate. and it ought to be condemned from louis farrakhan to david duke. the fact that our leaders can't say what i just said, i find is very problematic. rachel: it is. and it was actually, most of the members that have this
4:48 am
association with farrakhan. by the way, he is out and proud racist. he fills auditoriums with thousands of people. he has followers. we have members of the black congressional caucus who have very close relationships with him. they must know it's bad because they are the ones that tried to hide the photo barack obama 10 years ago with farrakhan. >> we have seen many of them taking pictures, et cetera. the bottom line is that i don't think anybody, no matter where you fall on which side of the aisle it, doesn't matter which political ideology you ascribe to. we should be able to strongly condemn hate. what's really unfortunate is a lot of the statements that we have seen come out are people basically condemning farrakhan's anti-semitic remarks. we don't condone anything he says about jews. et cetera. but they won't condemn him. whereas he, as a person, has built a legacy of bigotry. these little milk toast statements are weak and very
4:49 am
unfortunate. ed: what about these reports of leaders of the resist movement. some members of congress dining with farrakhan after all these hateful comintsd for so many years? >> well, what we are see something a lot of folks are basically saying well, you know, publicly they will make these statements about farrakhan and how they don't condone anything he says. privately the reports are very accurate. you know, even "the washington post" just recently came out with an article saying hey, these reports are valid. can you see what's going on. i applaud jake tapper for talking about it quite extensively. he is about the only person who mainstream media really kind of talking about this issue. and i think it's unfortunate that it's not a bigger issue in the news that we have several of our nation's leaders that are comfortable with a bigot. rachel: it's great point, jeremy. thanks for bringing that um by the way. a double standard, i can't imagine this on the other side. thanks for joining us. >> absolutely. ed: navy sailor jailed for sharing classified photos from a submarine has gotten his wish. the president officially par

5:18 am
the ohio economy. there's about 100,000 jobs that are directly or indirectly connected with steel production. and so this is a big deal to ohio and everyone who represents ohio understands that. i think when the president is right and particularly you are talking about steel. shipping vital to our national economy and our national defense. so this is an important moment. ohio has lost so many jobs because of these bad trade agreements. finally seeing a correction here. ed: what evidence is there that these tariffs will bring those jobs back, sir. >> they will put the brakes on the dumping. i have testified before the international trade commission on this as a member of congress. steel so low the cost of production, even, and as a result american jobs are lost. and in particular jobs in ohio have been lost.

we are working on that no. it could be one day that a special prosecutor would be required. but we are going to look at this both with attorneys and within the inspector general's office and they will get to the bottom. ed: that's the attorney general of the united states jeff sessions on the question of whether or not there should be a second special counsel to investigate fisa abuse. somebody who has been in the middle of a lot of these big stories corey lewandowski, the former trump campaign manager, co-author of "let trump be trump." good morning, welcome, corey. rachel: good morning, corey. >> good morning, how are you? when pete's d.n.a. comes back it is going to show he is a patriots fan. i can't wait. rachel: i thought you were going to say a patriot. pete: why couldn't you stop at patriot? laying on thick.
5:34 am
e. ed: obviously the president has been upset with the attorney general in that tweet. a week or 10 days ago hey, don't let the justice department inspector general investigate fisa abuse. get a special counsel. what do you think about jeff sessions trying to find middle ground here though saying look, i'm waiting for this report from the inspector general. once we get those facts then i may move forward on special counsel? >> you know what? i believe that the inspector general's report is going to find that the people of the deputy director of the fbi mccabe and others probably did not follow the proper procedure as it related to the fisa application, which was allowing them to spy on personal stipulates on domestic soil. if that is the case, then there is no question and i agree with bob goodlatte, congressman goodlatte and others that an additional special counsel should be put in place to review this process and hold people accountable. this is absolutely imperative and i think the ig reports needs to come out sooner rather than later.
5:35 am
pete: you don't believe that the attorney general is doing enough then? >> i think you need to move faster. what are we waiting for. if there has ever been abuses by the fbi or other members of the deep state which shows that they were using improper information to go and ask for a warrant to spy on american citizens on domestic soil, there is nothing more sacred than being an american than having your privacy. it's a violation of the fourth amendment. i think what are we waiting for? let's get this started right away. pete: corey, you also testified this week before devin nunes committee, the house intel committee, pull us behind the curtain a little bit if you will. how long were you in there? was it a formal process? was it informal? it was off the record. no cameras. what was the process like. i have heard you say many times there was no collusion. i have a sense of what your message was. pull us inside. >> well, you know, i spent about between my two appearances which i volunteered to cooperate with, of course, because i had -- i have never done anything wrong. there was no collusion no.
5:36 am
cooperation, no cooperation. i told this 1 hours over a period of two days. what's amazing was while i'm in there testifying, members of the minority are out walking around telling the media everything that's going to on. while it wasn't -- it was supposed to be a secret meeting in the sense of there were no quam was there the democrats are very good at sharing information. very selective about. and what i said was i will answer every relevant question that relates to what this committee is supposed to be talking about, which is the russia investigation. i will sit here forever if that's what you want. but the bottom line is, that's not what they want to get to. they want to make this a circus. they did a very good job of making it a circus. but at the end of the day, they are now assured from me and many others there was no collusion and no cooperation between the trump campaign and any russians. ed: that's funny because democrat adam schiff is always talking about alleged leaks from different nunes the republican. now you are saying the democrats are out there leaking information. they don't seem to say anything about that. >> it's amazing. because, during the hearing, just so you know, the
5:37 am
republicans never got up and left. it was the democrats who kept coming and going will. all of a sudden i walk out of the room and the media said hey did you just say this or that in the committee? it wasn't the republicans, it was the democrats. pete: i think it blows people's minds when you think about it. rachel: it's a wonder that people even bother testifying because this is what happens. let's move to north korea because the president is about to have in a few months here, within the next two months a really unprecedented meeting with kim jong un and we want to know from you, because have you such a close relationship with the president or did, you know about his leadership style. what does the development of this week tell america about the leadership styles of this particular president? >> what it tells america and the rest of the world is what the president is doing is making our world safer. you know, has he gotten a concession from north korea to stop testing nuclear weapons, if that doesn't make the world safer until this meeting occurs, nothing does. this is the leadership our
5:38 am
country has needed for a long time. he is willing to sit down and have a conversation. if you remember it, wasn't that long ago. kim jong un was saying i may send a missile down to guam. one of the u.s. territories. and the president said if you do that that will be mitt with fire and fury that the world has never seen. and now, look where we are. a face-to-face meeting coming up sometime in the next 60 or 90 days at a location to be determined. the most important thing is that the people of south korea can feel safe right now that no nuclear weapon is going to land on them because the president has gotten a concession from north korea to hold off on all testing. that is so important. and you know what we have given up? nothing. we are going to give an opportunity to negotiate the economic sanctions that this president has pushed very hard to keep on north korea has brought them to come and try and denuclearize and that's a very important thing not only our country but the world. pete: once this president gets behind closed doors he will wing it and give away the farm. who knows what he is going to say.
5:39 am
have you been lined closed doors in high stakes meetings with him. how does he prepare to go into something this significant? >> donald trump is the greatest negotiator i have ever seen. have you seen it in real estate deals to him now being the president. every time they say he can't get something done. he gets it done whether it was a tax bill or now a negotiation with another world leader. look at the respect that he has with other world leaders. you know, across the globe. you know, when he has gone and met with them. they have gone away and said what a great relationship. where that's in japan or in south korea or wherever it is across the globe, he is going to be fully prepared, but what he is not going to do is allow north korea to continue to develop a nuclear weapon at the expense of not only the u.s., but the rest of the globe. ed: what do you think about this jobs number and you put it together with the fact that the president is hitting the road, key battleground tonight, pennsylvania. they like the steel tariffs there. but and they love these jobs number, obviously. the republican as you know
5:40 am
in this special election has been behind in the polls. will the president be able to sell this to get him across the finish line? >> well, look, this is really trump territory out there where he is going tonight in pennsylvania. he won that district by 18 points. the steel tariffs, the aluminum tariffs are something where the pittsburgh post gazette came out this week and said they have a champion in donald trump. what's amazing to me as it relates to the tariffs are people are surprised by this. donald trump has been talking about this for literally 30 years promise he made nut campaign and promise he fulfilled as the president. that means real jobs. i think with donald trump going to pennsylvania tonight, it's going to be a massive rally, hopefully fox will carry it live. and he will pull across the candidate there in pennsylvania to another election victory. ed: heard it here first. rachel: see if donald trump is able to pull him over the finish line and give good luck to the candidate. we have to move on.

listen to what he said. >> this is really trump territory where he's going tonight in pennsylvania. he won that district by 18 points, the steel tariffs the aluminum tariffs are something where the pittsburgh post gazette came out and said they have a champion in donald trump and what's amazing as it relates to the tariffs are people are surprised by this. donald trump has been talking about this for literally 30 years. it was a promise he made on the campaign and a promise he fulfilled as the president and that means real jobs -- ed: just after 7:00 p.m. eastern time you'll want to tune into fox news we'll be carrying that rally live. rachel: do you think that the tariffs for steel and aluminum are actually going to help the republican candidates to be able to transfer? this is steel country. ed: interesting question in the debate they had i was covering it for shannon bream a few days back the democratic candidate ahead fighting the republican to support donald trump more on the tariff to your point saying as a democrat this is a great idea and so i wonder also your
6:05 am
question is a good one because big picture, everybodies predicting now this tariff thing is a big loser just like oh, the tax cuts a loser, only 20-30% of the public supports it and now you're seeing well over 60% of the public supports that nancy pelosi is like well, maybe crumbs are not that bad. rachel: they also predicted the stock market would tank because of it. pete: they both predicted president trump was a political liability and republicans are running with him and democrats are trying to support him. ed: they also predicted he would start world war three with north korea instead the president is tweeting this. the deal with north korea is very much in the making and will be if completed a big if a very good one for the world. time and place, tbd. again, if you go back six months or so ago, the whole there's last summer, fire and fury, what is this president doing, this rhetoric is very dangerous it's going to start a war. it looks like the rhetoric coupled with actual actions with sanctions is crippling north korea and they're coming to the table. rachel: and corey lewandowski talked about the president's
6:06 am
negotiating skills. it's not just his negotiating skills with north korea but the negotiatings skills with the chinese who clearly upped their sanctions and its been really interesting i think watching liberals, the networks trying to wrap their heads around what they said was going to be a fail ing presidency. it's clear to me that donald trump entered office and said what's the biggest problem on the dock here and they said north korea remember obama left him a letter and said north korea is the one that keeps me up all night and donald trump with all his bravado, he's the alpha male we were talking about he said do you know i'll take that on and within a year look where we're at. ed: it's the power of being unpredictable when your en eski doesn't know what you're doing and they threaten one thing and they call your bluff and say you will see fire and fury or we'll punch you in the nose and give you a nick name little rocket man, those things all add up but to your point, the foreign
6:07 am
policy counsel on foreign relations crowd it doesn't look like anything they've ever seen so sit looks wreckless and unpredictable and ed you talked to a military and it said some teams these are the times of folks that have a breakthrough. ed: to your point it was a week ago today that the president flew from florida back to the white house to go to the grid iron dinner, this press dinner and one of the president's jokes was everyone asked me about negotiating with kim jong-un and what it's like to negotiate with a madman and the president joked , i don't know that's not my problem meaning with kim jong-un is dealing with a madman that unpredictability the president himself was self-aware about is what brought kim jong-un. rachel: and the willingness to buck all of the advice from all of the experts who think they have all of the answers he took the foreign policy advice that every president, the scripts that's handed to every president and ripped it up and said i think i know how to deal with a bully this is how you do it and i don't care what all you experts with pointy heads think
6:08 am
i'm going to do it this way. pete: that's right same sentiment of ripping up the play book when it comes to the idea of a military parade which we have a development on the pentagon outlining how they will execute the parade the president requested which will happen on veterans day on november 11 and ultimately, you know the president took a lot of heat for this and saw the french parade, loved what he saw the patriotism and pride involved in that show of force felt like we should do something like that too. some support the idea, some don't. the one limitation the pentagon put on this parade is no tanks. ed: no tanks like that. pete: or a wheeled vehicle. rachel: not good for the road. you know as well as anybody that that won't be good for the road. pete: they're built to destroy things. ed: and again the mainstream media jumped on the president and this is what dictators do and china and north korea leaving out the context, the president got the idea from france, an allie. rachel: but in all fairness, it's not sort of american tradition to see our military.
6:09 am
pete: parades? rachel: well parades are, but let's be honest. even generals in the military -- ed: i've marched a lot of parades. pete: yeah. ed: but i will to your point, it's distracting it costs money there's reasons why, but i think a little shot in the arm for the troop? rachel: a lot of people say we don't parade, we just kill things and do things. ed: that's what you thought and we want that feedback. stephanie e-mailed in. the president should be held and we should celebrate our brave. pete: an e-mail from chris says i would vote no for a military parade because of the cost but say yes if it includes vietnam vets so they could be honored for their service. rachel: great advice. e-mail from ryan. he says i'm all for the parade, anything to promote patriotism and showing fellow americans how impressive our military is. pete: i think civic ritual is important i wrote about it in my book, in the arena, quick plug there, it was the memorial day
6:10 am
in minnesota that in many ways inspired me to want to join the military watching these heros and the community standing up saying we appreciate what you do and we love this country so much we send our men to go over and fight and die to defend it that struck me to the heart and said it's something i want to do so i do think person pep waiting those thins is important and the president said patriotism should unite us not divide that. rachel: absolutely i can't disagree with that. i'm a military brat and i love the military i'm just not sure on this but i appreciate your sentiment. ed: you asked what it's like to deal with a bully and i've been working with pete for a long time. rachel: [laughter] that's true. all right we got to go to headlines starting with a fox news alert. the 15 police officers this year shot and killed and another injured in an overnight standoff in california. police say the suspect opened fire while he was barricaded inside a home near los angeles. swat teams are still trying to arrest the shooter the injured officer is in stable condition. also breaking overnight, president trump reacting to the murder of three hostages killed

6:17 am
with his promise to help our family out. he is an amazing man and this is just one of the many great things that he's done in his term. you know, i got to speak with him briefly yesterday and what an amazing guy. just to be able to take time out of his busy schedule to speak with me and to turn my family's life around and give us our lives back. pete: you felt like a forgotten man in many ways and the type of person the president said he would remember and in this case absolutely he has. you were on our program last week, you weren't sure whether or not something like this would happen. then you found out when did you find out and how did you find out that you had been pardoned? >> well, i was at work as a garbage man and my wife texted me and said you've been pardoned and i kind of thought she was messing with me, so i said okay, yeah, sure, and then she sent me a picture of the actual signed pardon and i couldn't believe it pete: how did she find out? >> the white house contacted my
6:18 am
attorney, ronald dagle and his wife, and said hey, you know, we want you guys to know that you're getting pardoned and so that was pretty amazing. pete: and you go home and you immediately cut the ankle bracelet off because you were still on house arrest is that right? >> that's correct yes. we got permission to cut my ankle bracelet off so now i'm no longer on house arrest which is amazing. pete: i think the fact that you asked for permission to cut your ankle bracelet off after the president pardoned speaks to the way you conducted yourself through all of this, aboveboard, honest about it, you felt bad and remorse and served a year in prison even though you had no intent to share any photos it was more accidental than anything else. what has it been like to go through and how is the light at the end of the tunnel here? >> well its obviously been for somebody like myself whose, you know, patriotic and all i wanted to do was serve my country and i honestly believe the systems that went after me were put in place to protect people like me until i was run through the ring
6:19 am
er and it's unfortunate because, you know, i still love this country. it's still the greatest country in the world and i believe president is taking it back to that place where it needs to be, but you know, it's unfortunate that one prosecutor and a couple fbi agents really just destroyed my life for no reason. this case could have been handl ed at a much lower level within the military as it should have been because i was active duty at the time and i would have taken my punishment the same way like a man. i made a mistake when i was a young kid, miss guided attempt to have some mementos, and it should have never reached the level that it did and i believe president trump saw that and that's why he spoke about my case because it was a clear attempt by the department of justice, you know, under obama to use me as a scape goat to take the heat off hillary clinton for mishandling classified information and, you know, like i said i still have faith in the system and that's exactly the reason why i maintained and served my time, i
6:20 am
didn't cause any issues in prison, i did my time the right way. i took my punishment like a man and i got out and i did my best to be a contributing member of society as soon as i could i got a job and i was very fortunate to be hired by the only company that would give me a second chance, you know, a local waste management company. pete: i served with guys like you i have no doubt about that you're grateful for this country you love it and you want an honest days work and you love your country. if you would briefly what is your final message to the president, one man who overruled everyone else? >> thank you, sir for your bravery and for standing up in the face of so many people who said that, you know, you would never do the right thing and you've proven them wrong time and time again and thank you for having the moral fortitude to follow through with your promises and, you know, just be a great american. pete: kristian, talk about fortitude, you defined that as well. congratulations on your new found freedom. i can tell you'll absolutely make the best of it we are happy

he hit the road to run from police and officers blaming the catch and release justice system allowing criminals to be released without a judicial review. rachel? rachel: all right, thank you. daylight saving time begins tonight which means it's time to spring forward and move the clocks ahead an hour, but if florida gets its way they could be in daylight saving permanent ly. the deal is currently on governor rick scott's desk, but they could get rid of it i'm sorry, but what congress also needs to give them an exemption from the federal law so is this the beginning or the end of changing your clocks? here to debate risk expert dr. i'm going to let you say that one and make sure we get it right. >> close, rachel, rachel: all right, and communications fellow at the center for climate and security and physician and journalist dr. parik. did i say that one right? >> people are really hard names, that's okay. rachel: let's just get down to
6:26 am
the debate. should we get rid of daylight saving i'm going to start with you. >> sure, thank you, rachel so the views i'm speaking today are my own, and ir we still doing this? why are we doing this to ourselves? the majority of americans are sick and tired of moving their clocks back and forth twice a year and the case for it was energy savings and to enjoy more sun light but as we become more energy efficient it's really counter productive to our needs now we're seeing increasing hotter temperatures in arizona for example,, the state that has opted out of daylight saving time because in fact they were using more energy when they would jump the clock forward an hour so really it makes sense to stay in standard time. florida has got it wrong. rachel: all right, dr. parik, what do you say? >> well there are a lot of benefits that come with daylight saving time especially in the long term after we get over this hump where we change the clocks but in the long term what it means is more daylight exposure during waking hours for most
6:27 am
people and for most people that's a good thing arizona would argue differently. they don't want that extra sun light because it's so hot at night but for most of us it means an extra hour of sun light that goes from the morning to the evening and there's research that shows it promotes a more active lifestyle and the health benefits from sunshine people socialize more and potential economic benefit people are likely to shop after work so that's the long term reason for it. rachel: i live in cold country and that extra hour of light actually really does make me happier, but what about people's sleep? it's changing people's sleep, is there a reason why maybe the whole country should be on the same sort of, you know, we shouldn't have one or two states that don't have it? what do you say to that? >> sure i think there's a strong case to be made for the effect that it has on your rhythm and it really mess up you'll notice this effect especially in today letters it makes much longer for toddlers to be able to reset those internal clocks, and when you have sleep deprivation, we have studies that show there's
6:28 am
increasing accidents on mondays after you see increases in heart attacks even suicides, so ultimately it really is much more beneficial in terms of the health sense to see that morning light in the mornings. dr. what do you say, i mean we do have a country that has a lot of sleep deficiencies actually some people say it's a chronic epidemic of the country that we need more sleep. what do you say to that? >> i agree with her that this change in clocks disrupts our sleep cycle especially for the next few days. the benefit though in the long term for now is that sun light exposure and then in the fall, when you fall back the big benefit is that you can even reset your sleep schedule, so in the winter, you can try to go to sleep a little bit earlier, get up a little bit earlier and that's easy to do. light is the biggest factor and back in the fall it's easier to have that daylight in the morning, so the switch is painful but it's the other benefit that we're looking at. rachel: well it's a great debate , our viewers write in fox & friends dot cop tell us what

6:35 am
president does believe in fair and reciprocal trade but he thinks we've been taken advantage of for a long time and there's certain sectors in the economy he wants to make sure are protected for national security reasons. many members on the hill have been outspoken on that but it shouldn't be a surprise, as you all said on your show he's been talking about this for decades he campaigned on it and he was head of the ticket for republicans in making this campaign pledge and so, he's following through on his pledges just like he has on tax relief and he has on regulatory relief and just like he has on the mandates. rachel: it's a popular policy in pennsylvania by the way where the presidents going to be this evening for a rally and where there's a very important election. how much did that have to do with the timing at least. we've said he liked this policy for the last 30 years been talking about it but the timing is interesting. >> rachel it wasn't really time to coinside with the election. the president was campaigning on this last year in 2016 and been making the case for this action for quite some time. the 232 report was cop pleated by the secretary of commerce
6:36 am
recently and said this was simply the timing it worked out. ed: mark anything else happening at the white house or is it pretty quiet these days? >> you know, ed i think the media likes to focus on whose up , whose down, what's the latest. pete: the watch word. but i think the american people want to know, did they get tax relief? was the individual mandate repealed? did we get a new supreme court justice? did we have have a record number of circuit court judges confirm ed in 2017? what are we doing in 2018 to rollback our regulations on the banking industry so the president continued to follow through on the promises he made and that's what the american people are responding to. pete: you worked with general kelly and chief of staff on a regular basis. why then do we keep hearing this narrative chaos inside the west wing. you're inside the west wing what are you seeing and what does the process look like? >> well the president is very demanding pete we know that so obviously there's going to be some level of turmoil but he's trying to deliver for the american people and he's working hard toward that end and i think unfortunately a lot of the media again want to file the in treeing of whose up whose down
6:37 am
as opposed to focus on the results. we're trying to focus on what the results are for the american people and as mitch mcconnell said 2017 was the most productive year he's had since coming to the united states senate. rachel: can we talk about daca for a second because you're dealing with members of congress all the time. the president has said listen i want to deal on daca, no ones calling me is spin calling you on the democrat side? >> well rachel we've had plenty of conversations on daca but i think the president's point is true that ever since the bill failed its been quiet and i think the reason is because when the court injunction moved the deadline a lot of democrats ran into a political issue rather than having a legislative solution to it so the next thing is probably when higher courts overturn the decision even democrats acknowledge that president obama's action was unconstitutional. even as the administration several times considered taking that action said no, it has to be legislative after failing legislative they internally overturn it and say okay let's try to take this executive action and we know is
6:38 am
unconstitutional so a court is going to overturn this and unfortunately we're trying to find a solution that provides a permanent residency for these citizens and make sure they continue to contribute to our economy and live here but democrats are rather having political issues than find a solution. rachel: i think the dreamers are turning on them. we have a dreamer coming on later on. a lot are online saying hey you guys said you cared about us democrats. there's a deal on the table do you not like security more? >> well rachel i think the plan was pretty common sense about securing the border ending the chain migration and diversity lottery but he went past the 690,000 people in the daca program and yielded the democrat s to ask to say can you exclude families those are not willing to come out to shadow supply and went back to 2012 as democrats asked and took the extraordinary step of offering a pathway to citizenship so we're seeing saying the president stepped forward to offer us a generous package why can't democrats come to the table. ed: mark more important virginia , north carolina whose going to win tonight?

with you. look if ronald regan was here today, he would have said that the daca community and the dream ers are republicans. they just don't know it yet, but look, the reality is that we are just one piece of the puzzle. it's much bigger than the daca community. i would also invite those directly affected. i would invite victims and american families that have been victims of drugs and crimes coming from the south of the border. i would invite border patrol, i would invite businesses and schools and also, you know, the daca dreamers, the ones that are brought here legally and i would -- ed: i don't mean to interrupt but you're giving a great speech and laying it out and you add important context to this debate but we need some specifics which is what do you want to see the president do, specifically. we bring everybody to the table border patrol and as you say they've been at that table and unfortunately nothing has happened so i think president obama had about 600,000 children of illegal immigrants we wanted to give legal status to the president doubled or tripled
6:49 am
that and still not enough for democrats, so what specific steps do you want from the president? >> well again, i think we gave congress a chance to work and i think that it's a more effective and powerful message when you have all these parties that are being affected that sit down with the president and stand united and stand behind him and then let's put a face to the problem and stand united behind the president and let's, you know, let's not divide each other but put pressure on congress. rachel: you know, you bring up a great point the deadline is gone , so there's not as much pressure. your suggestion is president trump invite the dreamers, invite alt stakeholders to the white house let's have a big giant town hall with all of the media bring the attention back to the problem. i think it's good. thanks please give a hug to your mom she raised a fine young man and hopefully future citizen. >> thank you. ed: slamming brooklyn of all places brooklyn barbecue after a tweet says that its taken over the world and even some politicians like ted cruz of

seen our place. rachel: what's unique about it? >> i think what's unique about it -- rachel: you're saying the place is being copied? >> its just got a particular feel. rachel: a vibe? >> our handles are made from butcher knives and it just has a particular look and feel and big picnic tables and it's open and smells like smoke. >> so i live a few blocks away and it's my favorite barbecue place. it doesn't look that different than a barbecue place in the south. >> no, not really. part of it is that up in the north and in a lot of urban settings, anybody who did barbecue say 20 years ago even 15 years ago so did it in a more restaurant setting with white table clothes and a giant menu and a wine list and it just wasn't barbecue it just didn't seem right so i thought when i do barbecue in new york it has to feel like a real barbecue place. we're in a former auto mechanic garage with a great feel. ed: so look into the camera and tell ted cruz why he's wrong.
6:56 am
rick: [laughter] >> well, ted you're wrong because our barbecue is its own unique thing and it's not trying to be texas or north carolina or kansas city. we're our own thing. pete: i've had a lot of texas barbecue which is fantastic but this is awesome. rachel: this is awesome. >> stay true to the technique of barbecue and be traditional as far as that goes but we do certain things like this is pork belly. rick: we're going to work on some of this pork belly during the commercial and there's more coming up. pete: we're going to try to get ted cruz on. ed: more fox & friends next. i'm a migraine sufferer and i'm an emt. when i get a migraine at work, it's debilitating. if i call out with a migraine, that's one less ambulance to serve a community. i just don't want to let these people down. excedrin migraine. relief that works as hard as you do.
