>> good monday morning, everybody. you're watching "fox & friends" first here to begin your week, i'm todd in for schmitt. >> good way to start this monday morning. i'm gillian mele, thank you for starting your day with us. fox news alert, israel blamed for a series of airstrikes against syria. todd: hours after one of the worst chemical attacks in history left dozens of innocent people dead. jillian: doug luzader is live in washington d.c. >> reporter: good morning. still some mystery this morning as to who launch thissed this missile attack overnight, both syria and russia are blaming israel, the pentagon says it was not the united states, but there is a lot of pressure for the u.s. to respond. and it was those images of what appears to be a chemical weapons attack just outside of syria's
2:02 am
capital that really got the president's attention over the weekend, showing even children as victims. the president quickly took to twitter saying this: >> r eporter: there is a real push now for the u.s. to take action. >> these people are butchers. this happened just about exactly a year ago, and president trump responded with a limited military strike against those syrian military units that carried out those attacks. and it's been better over the last year. there have been fewer attacks and small scale. there's only one language that these people understand. >> i wouldn't take anything off the table. these are horrible photos. we're looking into the attack at this point. >> reporter: yeah, nothing is off the table, so we'll see what
2:03 am
the u.s. response will be here. the u.n. security council is going to meet later today in an emergency session to discuss this, and, todd and jillian, just like a year ago, it seems to be the images of children that really got the president's attention here. jillian: absolutely. images that are definitely hard to watch. doug, we'll keep a close eye on this. kim jong un is ready to discuss denuclearization on the korean peninsula. north korea contacting the u.s. directly for the first time on the matter, increasing the likelihood of a summit between president trump and the rogue leader. the white house expects the meetings to take place by the end of may but no date or location has yet been set. todd: two soldiers killed in a helicopter training flight at fort campbell have been identified. 28-year-old warrant officer james casad a ana and 37-year-old ryan connolly losing their lives in the apache crash on friday night. their deaths mark the third deadly crash for the military in just one week. seven service members killed in

2:05 am
today: -- todd chinese officials have said negotiations are unlikely. michael needham, ceo of heritage action for america, says the president could tone down the rhetoric but praises this white house for finally standing up to abusive practices. >> tariffs aren't the right way to go. at the same time, i think the strongest fact the president has going for him is he's always been look out for american interests, looking out for american security. and for 20 years, liberal elites have promised us if we just integrate china into the global trade network, they will start acting responsibly. they haven't, and it's been a lie, and the president is right to take the threat seriously. american companies give up their intellectual property and the vast irresponsibility of chinese government around the world.
2:06 am
we need to be tough. we just need to be smart about how we're being tough. we need to be targeted, and i think some of what the president's laid out have not been targeted and smart. todd: the trump administration imposed tariffs against some chinese products, china responded with tariffs on 128 american products including fruit and pork. jillian: feeling the heat from president president trump, attorney general jeff sessions naming a federal prosecutor to help speed up the response to republican demands for documents. john lawyer will supervise the handing over of materials to congress on the surveillance of former adviser carter page, the firing of andrew mccabe from the fbi and the investigation into hillary clinton's privacy e-mail server. the move comes after the president tweeted this, writing, quote:

2:08 am
>> mark be's happy to go to congress -- mark's happy to go to congress because mark wants to answer every question people have about the service we offer. you know, we really believe in social experiences, and we were really focused on that, and we weren't focused enough on being proactive enough. kelly: republican senator john kennedy hinted that some lawmakers may want to regulate facebook. >> i don't want to hurt facebook. my biggest or worry many all of this, and i have many, many questions for mr. zuckerberg. but my biggest worry with all this is that the privacy issue and what i called the propagandist issue are both too big for facebook to fix. kelly: cambridge analytica reportedly misused the data from the millions of profiles. the firm allegedly improperly accessed users' information to build profiles on voters that were later supposedly used to help elect president trump in 2016. meanwhile, christopher wiley, the cambridge analytica

2:14 am
>> not picking on the attorney general, loretta lynch -- who i like very much or or -- or but her meeting with president clinton on that airplane was the capper for me. and i then said, you know what? the department not by itself credibly end this. jillian: it was enough to raise suspicion for then-fbi director james comey, and now former attorney general loretta lynch is ready to address what happened during that 2016 tarmac meeting. todd: judicial watch has been on the case from the beginning, so what does its president expect lynch to say? tom fenton join us now, and this is not under oath, this is under
2:15 am
the auspices of nbc news and lester holt. with that as the baseline, what do you expect to hear? >> well, she already said the meeting cast a cloud on the investigation, but she never recused herself from the investigation. remember, the meeting took place just shortly before hillary clinton went through that ridiculous interview with the fbi where he said she couldn't remember things because she hit her head and other silly statements like that. and james comey thought it was something that impacted the credibility of the justice department. so you have both comey and lynch agreeing it impacted the credibility of the justice department, and i'm sure she's going to say that it impacts her decision making. but this is why you have independent investigations. we asked for an inspector general investigation of this two years ago, still no answers. still getting cover-ups from the fbi and justice department on documents about this meeting. so this nbc news interview will be interesting, but i think she's positioning herself in front of the media now because she knows james comey's coming
2:16 am
out with this book and will be expanding on his concerns about the justice department credibility. it's interesting, comey didn't have much in the way of credibility because of his politicization of the fbi, but hers in terms of bending over backwards to protect hillary clinton was too much even for him. jillian: well, tom, you just touched on it, but i want to get it into it a little bit more. you mentioned the timing of this being a little we peculiar, the fact that she's coming out to speak about this before the release of the book. what do you make of the timing? >> well, comey is bringing this all back up as a result of this big book he has coming out, and ital comes in the midst of -- it also comes in the midst of questions about the way the justice department was handling in terms of donald trump. you had loretta lynch telling james comey by all accounts don't call the clinton investigation an investigation, call it a matter. while at the same time donald trump is being targeted with
2:17 am
clinton dnc dossier information it looks like. so i think mrs. lynch has a lot to answer for, and she has -- she's skated through with not much in the way of questions either on the abuse of the fisa courts, the misuse of the dossier and the general illicit targeting of not only donald trump, then his team and then, of course, all the leaks that may have come out of her justice department and her fbi for which she was responsible for after the election in 2017. ms. lynch has a lot to answer for. todd: and, tom, just to review, what documents has the doj and fbi turned over regarding text messages on that meeting on the tarmac? >> well, the fbi first told us they had no documents. then they told us after they found out, well, maybe we do have documents, and they gave us documents showing us they were more concerned about leaks from the meeting. and then we found out thanks to
2:18 am
the strzock/page e-mails that they were talking about the tarmac meeting. what about these text messages? they basically told us to jump in a lake. it's a modified, limited hangout when it comes to this justice department and this fbi about corruption going back into the obama administration. and i, frankly, the president is right to be upset that the justice department and fbi are not following the rule of law on transparency with regard to congressional inquiries and the freedom of information act on every scandal under the sun. jillian: tom, we appreciate your time this morning. >> you're welcome. todd: all right, a fox news alert. i shot my mother and a friend. a 23-year-old on the run this morning after posting a chilling murder confession on facebook. the urgent multi-state manhunt happening right now to find him. jillian: and securing the south. the national guard moving in along the border with even more

2:42 am
march 27th -- wray said he's going to assign more agents to produce the documents needed. what is not a good thing is for trump to continuously use twitter as a means to attack his own department of justice. it's just absurd for us to continue to attack our own government. their doing the best they can -- they're doing the best they can, and those documents will be released today. so to be late only three days does not warrant an attack on twitter. jillian: speaking of using twitter, let's pull out this tweet from saturday: =jl joe, who do you agree with, weny or president trump and his tweet? >> well, it's not looking good. look, there's a reason our founders put the congress in article i of the constitution and the executive branch in article ii. the fbi and doj are subject to -- not above finish the laws of the house of representatives and the senate. and when you see an agency potentially with bad actors stonewalling an investigation by
2:43 am
the people, we the people have sent to washington for this purpose. the president and, frankly, we all should be right to question this. every time we peel back a layer of the onion that is the fbi and doj, we seem to uncover more bias whether it's the strock e-mails, the new loretta lynch documents, comey perjuring himself, it's a marching band of red mags at this -- red flags at this point. jillian: and, wendy, if something seems to be taking a long time, isn't it fair to be getting something done about it? >> it is fair and, again, that's why i think it's really important that the department of justice came on and said they think the procedural red tape for documents is relatively slow, and they're going to work on addressing that. but again, we are talking about three days late, right? if they end up releasing these documents today. it's one thing to stonewall and never produce the documents, one thing to impede, but just to be tardy, again, does not warrant
2:44 am
us to have the type of conversations that make it seem like the entire department is or corrupt when that is not the case. jillian: joe, wendy pointed out the fact that, okay, or it's a couple days late, but do you think we would be having this conversation about the documents supposedly being released at some point soon -- possibly today -- if it weren't for the appointment of john lausch? >> no, and just look at the past precedent of what the nbi has been willing to disclose to -- fbi has been willing to disclose. every time there's a question of the fbi's actors, no, it is not the entire fbi or the doj, but when it's at the top levels who are political appointees, we see time and time again there is some implicit bias. just look at the way they handled the clinton investigation where they exonerated her versus how they look at dorn trump where there's -- donald trump where there's this hypothesizing that isn't even a crime on the books. jillian: wendy, final word. >> the individuals who were
