3:02 am
latest with what's happening with michael cohen's fate. let's go straight to a fox news alert. chemical inspectors right now will soon be let into the site of the attack on the syrian people. i'm talking about the gas attack. ainsley: this as new reports are come in overnight of more missile strikes in that area. the assad regime now firing back at those claims. steve: mike tobin is live until jerusalem with the latest on the inspectors who finally, mike you, are able to take a look at where it all happened. >> good morning steve. good morning good morning, gang. as you just the inspectors have just not made it to the sight of douma the site of the chemical weapons attack. they are due to arrive there tomorrow. russian and syrian forces have been in control of douma since last thursday. russian officials have said the inspectors are being held in damascus out of security concerns following the coalition airstrikes last saturday morning. it should be noted that douma was not hit. russians continue to deny that a chemical attack happened.
3:03 am
russian officials have said that the attack was an elaborate hoax staged and filmed by the first responders group white helmets with the support of great britain. more than 40 people died in do you meanna. according to the world health organization. 500 people became sick showing symptoms consistent with the exposure to toxic chemical weapons. strike syria. president trump claimed success and in the face of russia, backing up the claim that syrian claim that missiles were intercepted. the president said all of the missiles found their mark. >> with way over 100 missiles shot in. they didn't shoot one down. the equipment didn't work too well. every single one hit its target. think of that. how genius. not one was shot down. >> and we're following reports out of syria about another round of airstrikes overnight. some of what we're getting are conflicting reports. some claim it was a false alarm. some claim that the missiles were interseptemberred mid-air. hezbollah's media claims the
3:04 am
air base near homs and claims the missiles were aimed at a base near damascus. the more we are watching this one, the more information we are getting this was a false alarm. i can't say it definitively yet but we are leaning in that direction. brian: thank you so much. mike tobin in israel. israelis are in the habit, of not acknowledging when they strike. maybe they will do it in the aftermath if they need to. also important, too. when the president looks at syrian policy, word is the white house is looking for arab groups to replace our 2,000 that are there. got 4,000 in jordan doing some military exercises. so, he is saying i can't replace -- i know we can't leave a vacuum. but i would like to get my guys out. steve: sure. in the meantime got russia as mike said in his report, russia said, look, those dead bodies were staged by the white helmets. and rather than actually allow inspectors to come in to swab the place to find out whether or not there were traces of toxins, they
3:05 am
said, you know what? you don't need to do it. we have 22 witnesses. come on in here. remember the story we told you. come on. that's it. ainsley: grateful for our military in this amazing country we live in we don't have to worry about that. you see images of babies being washed off with hoses. steve: it's terrible. that's why the president struck. brian: the president has backed off for now sanctions that nikki haley promised were coming this week on all their equipment used by russia to help out syria to use this chemical attack. things like people and companies that make helicopters, for example. but we're holding off for now while sarah huckabee sanders came out yesterday and said we are still looking forward to some type of putin-trump summit. ainsley: in other news, james comey's book comes out today. we will be making a round of interviews we are getting the ratings numbers. in that interview with comey on abc sunday night drew .8 million viewers. but the cma awards on cbs.
3:06 am
that drew more. 12.1 million viewers. steve: actually 9 million less than the rose zan reboot and 12 million less than the stormy daniels show. and one of the early indications there was so much hype of this thing aside from the breathless promo it's going to be breathless you will be knocked shocked. cramer books in washington, d.c. last night which is very famous bookstore in the dupont circle neighborhood, they unveiled the book. and as it turns out they actually had more cameras there than customers. that's a shot from inside cramer books. they expected long lines. that wasn't the case. the big question is who is going to buy this book? keep in mind republicans don't like comey because of what he did to trump and company. and then democrats don't like him because of what he did to hillary.
3:07 am
ainsley: agreeing with president trump that james comey is no hero. brian: here is an example of someone from the clinton orbit who is not buying this book. patty solace doyle said this to the hill. i think he has to explain incredibly poor judgment on the timing of the book. that's one of them. john podesta also comes out seems quite upset. others on the right who say he doesn't want to come on any of our outlets or address any of the complicationing regarding the hillary clinton. >> patty soltis doyle the one you are talking about ran hillary clinton's campaign in 2008. she said i have made peace with it but still a punch in the gut when she read his book. steve: newt gingrich had this observation about the very tall james comey and all the hype he's gotten. >> i have to say i don't think when this book came out and the tour began, i didn't really expect the level of shrinkage. he is going from 6'8" and by
3:08 am
the end of the tour i think he will be about 5'2". liberals are attacking him. the members of the obama administration are attacking him. conservatives are attacking him. he has managed to have a range of people describe him as dishonest, that is really pretty remarkable. you know, he is a very big guy physically. but i do think psychically he has been shrinking with every interview. brian: some of the things he said defies explanation. if you are a law and order guy legal background years with the fbi do you come out and say yeah, i think the russians might have something on president trump. not sure. oh, yeah. do i think the dossier is true? i don't know. it might be. really you just throw that out slip shot just like john brethren none has no problem doing that among the other people in the clinton orbit very upset. jennifer palmeriy very clearly outside the bounds of how the fbi should be
3:09 am
operating. john podesta said one of the eras of justice under the post hoover. the way it was trending regardless. no press conference october 27th i think trump still wins on policies and his message and the fact that he outhustled her so much in the last month. ainsley: maybe you are it right. we heard hillary side they are blaming comey because she didn't win. maybe you are right maybe he would have won anyway. steve: maybe mr. comey is being so cagey because he is under restrictions about what he can and cannot say about open investigations. meanwhile, speaking of open investigations, you know the storm daniel michael cohen thing. yesterday, cohen went before judge kemba wood here in new york city. what they want is he would like to see a special master, somebody else, another set of eyes, other than the government look all the documents seized from michael cohen. it was revealed yesterday essentially since 2017 michael cohen, according to the "new york times," has
3:10 am
had 10 clients. seven of them strategic advice and business consulting clients. three others, he said the president, i had this g.o.p. fundraiser by the name of elliott broidy and a third person who he declined to mention. but the judge said, you know, there was some wrangling for a while and finally said, okay, the third person is sean hannity. and apparently there was a gasp in the room. it's like well, we know that name. ainsley: sean defended himself last night and on twitter. he said there was no payoff and i really only went to him for advise for real estate questions because he doesn't invest in the stock market. he invests in real estate and he had some legal questions. here is sean last night. >> here's the truth. michael cohen never represented me in any legal matter. i never retained his services. i never received an invoice. i never paid michael cohen for legal fees. i did have occasional brief conversations with michael cohen. he is a great attorney about legal questions i had.
3:11 am
they never involved any matter between me or third party, a third group at all. i never asked michael cohen to bring this proceeding on my behalf. i have no personal interest in this legal matter. that's all there is. nothing more. so maybe the media can try and start focusing in on the biggest abuse of power scandal in this country or maybe the forgotten men and women in this country. brian: basically sean's name was brought up. people said what type of linkage is there? there is absolutely no link canal ago tom fitton has. sean hannity's name was leaked out. the reason for that -- for michael cohen to go in there yesterday and the president have attorneys represent him, they wanted the first look at hits documents. they didn't get it. so the other side will get their first look. and then about a month later, michael cohen will get a look at his stuff. i don't know if he is going to get it all back. steve: it will be interesting to see. ultimately the big news out of the sean hannity reveal
3:12 am
was he said he talked to a guy who has been a friend. in fact, the "new york times" tracked down and discovered that tom-sean hannity said once on his radio show when introducing michael cohen, a long-time -- night of the inauguration, long-time friend of mine who has known me long before the campaign ever got started. brian: i know, too, it makes total sense. if you have a lawyer and you are trying to buy something and get to be friendly with that. how many times do we have the judge on the couch and say something to the judge, hey, judge, what's going on with this or ainsley owns a lot of real estate in new york city. moist of the buildings she owns. you might throw a question out legally do i have a standing here? steve: sure. every time we will do a tax segment we will ask the tax person can i deduct ammo? and apparently it sounds like sean regarded their relationship as something like that. somebody he had known for years and occasionally ask
3:13 am
advice about real estate. anyway, we thought we would update you on that. ainsley: small business owners thanking president trump for his tax cuts during a round table in florida. our next guest sat right next to the president. she is going to share her story with us next. steve: looking forward to that plus, the video, crazy. a plane, look at that right there. skids across a road coming within feet of real trouble. dramatic moments caught on camera. what happened next? you have got to stick arranged.

3:17 am
>> comes from a country that promised everything and only delivered misery. i knew 8 years of delivering appeasement entitlement was taking us down a path of no return. government helps businesses by helping us do our jobs and getting out of the way. unleashing the american spirit. steve: i think the politicians are being beaten today. [laughter] steve: that grateful business owner our next guest, one of the many thanking president trump for tax cut befers during a visit outside of miami yesterday. irena joins us now with her story. good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: you came to this country when you were 4 years old. your family came here from cuba. and your family was looking for, what? >> like i said yesterday, we were looking first and foremost for political stability and freedom.
3:18 am
my grandfather had immigrated from spain to cuba in the early turn of the century. and he established himself as a respectable businessman. we were from the countryside. and come revolution time everybody he had worked for was taken away from us. my father and uncle served jail time for opposing the castro regime. when we did have opportunities to leave the island, my father was looking first and foremost for political stability for our family. steve: absolutely. you round up moving to south florida. at first your father ran grocery stores and restaurants as well. your business is very successful in the hollywood, florida area. you were there at the round table with the president yesterday talking about tax cuts. what is it about these particular cuts that have helped your business? >> well, it's a promise of what the tax cuts is going to bring in the near future. what we are see something
3:19 am
with the increments of jobs, in order to retain and hire new employees, we have seen that we have had to increase sal larceninsalaries substantian a very short period of time. helping lower level employees even before it helps us. it's the promise of what the tax cuts is going to bring us that we can reinvest this money into our businesses and we can see the fruits of our labor. steve: sure, absolutely. what it means is that you are able to keep more of your money, which is always a good thing. i understand. >> absolutely. steve: i understand irina, you were a trump supporter from the get-go. what was it like sitting at that table in florida yesterday right next to the guy you supported and voted for? >> well, it was sore real. i never seen myself as a minority. this country took us in and i have always felt part of the majority. i believe in the american way. and so, but to even think that i came on a boat to
3:20 am
this country and that i'm sitting next to the leader of the free world, it was a surreal moment for me, really. your family's story. that's the great american story that's why people come to this country to be able to do what your family did. >> that's what we want to keep. that's what we want to preserve. we want to preserve the possibility of people continuing to do what we have done. so when we have huge government oversight, not only oversight, but regulations, it really makes it difficult for people to start businesses, it's very costly to start a business. and it's very cumbersome. if you put all this red tape, it really dissuades people from starting their own businesses. steve: get rid of the regulations which the president says is one of his priorities and cut taxes which he did. and that's why you are a happy person to join us on this tuesday morning. irina thank you very much. i know had you a big day
3:21 am
yesterday. >> you bet, my pleasure. steve: sanctuary backlash spreading across california overnight as the state's governor defies the president again? what's the governor up to this time? stick around for "fox & friends." [whispers] the search was intense. we spent weeks canvassing the quadrant to pinpoint our perfect location. once locked in on our target, we knew we had to move fast. fortunately, we were already pre-approved for a no money down loan with navy federal credit union, and were able to put an offer on this place immediately after it went on the market.
3:22 am
i see you dad! how are my tomatoes doing, babe? ah, pretty good. navy federal credit union open to the armed forces, the dod, veterans, and their families. dray, when he was younger, he loved to smile; and we knew he would need braces because his teeth were coming in funny. this is the picture that was on the front page of the newspaper. all you can notice is the braces! then, once he got to michigan state, he broke the retainer! my bottom teeth, they were really crooked, and i just wasn't getting braces again. then i discovered smiledirectclub. it's easy to just grab it and go and i can change it on the road. i did photoshoots with my aligners in and you can't see them. a smile is a first impression, that's why i think having a great smile is so important. so you're looking for male customers, ages 25-54,
3:23 am
who live within five miles of your business? like these two... and that guy. or maybe you want to reach women, ages 18 to 34, who are interested in fitness... namaste. whichever audience you're looking for, we'll find them we're the finders. we work here at comcast spotlight, and we have the best tools for getting your advertising message out there. anywhere, any way your audience watches. consider them found.
3:24 am
jillian: good morning, we are back with a fox news alert. a deputy constable shot in the line of duty. the deputy in texas responding to a domestic disturbance call in harris county, when a man came out of the house and started shooting. the deputy shot in the lower body and is undergoing surgery right now. the suspect was shot several times. no word on his condition. former first lady barbara bush is staying strong as she turns to comfort care. her son kneel says the family is reading to her. one of her favorite past times as she takes calls from loved ones. her grand daughter says
3:25 am
george h.w. bush still tells her i love you every night. the 92-year-old suffering from congestive heart failure and copd. ainsley? ainsley: thanks, jillian. the city of lam los alamitos, sanctuary city laws they are not alone as another county gets ready to vote today. brian: it's spreading. board of supervisors member will be voting against california sanctuary law and joins us to weigh in. kristin, can you give us the idea what the effect is since governor jerry brown says i know more than the country, i know what's best for california, i want to make this a sanctuary state? >> i'm going to provide you a visual this morning. because this is my third term in elected office. and never have i seen correspondence quite like on this issue. so, for example, i want to show you the number of people who have weighed in, this thin stack that support governor brown's actions on sanctuary state. now i want to share with you
3:26 am
something quite interesting, the number of people that have communicated with me in san diego county, the people who do not support moving forward with governor brown's sanctuary state. this is really quite remarkable. the pouring in of hundreds and hundreds of emails. this only includes items that have come through the regular email inbox. that doesn't include the phone calls that i have received and anything on social media. it's really remarkable. ainsley: wow. so the governor didn't like the federal laws so he passed these state laws. have you cities and counties saying it's unconstitutional. why do you think you have finally said enough is enough in california and several counties and cities are speaking out? >> i think san diegoens are finally seeing enough is enough, governor brown. in san diego county we managed a 5.7 billion-dollar budget on the county board of supervisors. only $1.7 billion is in our direct control. the rest are decisions being made by the state and the federal government. these are oftentimes harmful
3:27 am
decisions that are impacting san diegoens. governor brown needs to follow the laws of our constitution. brian: what happens, what i have noticed too i was in the los angeles and orange county area. i could not believe the level of homeless. people are coming in here, setting up tents. not even trying to get involved in society. and now i understand they are looking at public lands to set up these homes for the homeless, since they are all coming here in many cases illegally. what have you seen in san diego? what has been the affect of the people there? >> well, when you think back to 9/11, all of the rhetoric was about how important it was for coordination to take place between local, state, and federal government. well, we have done that in san diego. we had a system in place. we had task forces in place. for example, to stop maritime issues that we were having of humans, drugs, and weapons being smuggled in to the united states right here in to san diego.
3:28 am
unfortunately, under sb 54, our local law enforcement can no longer take part in those maritime task forces to cut down on human trafficking, drug trafficking, weapons trafficking, across the border. it's really quiet unfortunate the impacts of sb 54. ainsley: so today your meeting, who is meeting today? is it your county board? who makes the decision today? >> the county board of supervisors is meeting at 9:00 a.m. this morning. there is an open session item where people can make comments on the agenda. the county board will then adjourn into closed session, because i haven't asked our board to write a meaningless resolution. rather, i have asked our board to explore any and all legal options we have at this point. so the council will be meeting with the county board and we will be discussing how the county can move forward and push back against governor brown's unconstitutional action.
3:29 am
brian: kris are you doing this on your own or join in the government lawsuit. >> we have our confident legal team there to address us and address any solutions that might be on the table. brian: lastly, the wall worked in san diego, didn't it. >> the wall did work in san diego county. we have seen that cut down on the drug trafficking, on the weapons trafficking, and human trafficking is something that we're really focused on now. the human sex trade trafficking that's coming across the border is really unfortunate. we need the coordination between local, state, and federal agencies in order to make san diego a safe place. steve: all right, kristin gaspard, thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. brian: i look toward to getting the results of that vote. cop killers one the fbi's most wanted terrorists. why did he just get a $15,000 payday? ainsley: plus president trump welcomes japan's prime minister to florida in a few hours. what's on the agenda? we are live in washington
3:30 am
next. brian: i don't think golf. believe it or not. we are helping you beat the tax day stress by giving you free food if janice doesn't eat it all ♪ i just got paid and i think i'm going to hit the town ♪ wait till tomorrow ♪ because i feel good today ♪ yeah build attendance for an event. help people find their way. fastsigns designed new directional signage. and got them back on track. get started at here's something you should know. there's a serious virus out there that 1 in 30 boomers has, yet most don't even know it. a virus that's been almost forgotten. it's hepatitis c.
3:31 am
hep c can hide in the body for years without symptoms. left untreated it can lead to liver damage, even liver cancer. the only way to know if you have hep c is to ask your healthcare provider for the simple blood test. if you have hep c, it can be cured. for us, it's time to get tested. it's the only way to know for sure.
3:32 am
for us, it's time to get tested. but as it grew bigger and bigger,ness. it took a whole lot more. that's why i switched to the spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy.
3:33 am
everything. and that 2% cash back adds up to thousands of dollars each year... so i can keep growing my business in big leaps! what's in your wallet? steve: well, the president of the united states is going to welcome the japanese prime minister to the winter white house down at mar-a-lago in palm beach later today. these are pictures from last year. ainsley: that's right. the leader are expected to discuss north korea and the trade tariffs. brian: griff jenkins is live in our nation's capital. griff, this is you this year, right? >> yeah. this is me this year. i bet they do play golf. look, sarah sanders says this is going to be a positive visit and focus on
3:34 am
trade in north korea. the president he is standing his ground on trade. >> our country has been taken advantage of for many, many years. japan and south korea, so many countries. but with china, we are at $375 billion trade deficit. so we started a process. and we will see how it ends up. but we are going to win. >> remember, abe was the first leader to visit president trump. there tension now. caught off guards when his country was not exempted from the tariff plan. what seems to be abe's saying i hope to hold a dialogue with president trump so as to urge north korea to abolish nuclear missiles in a full and irreversible manner. abe is insisting that the negotiations over the denuclearization of the peninsula must include medium and short range missiles because they pose a direct threat to japan. this official visit began this afternoon guys with a
3:35 am
bilateral meeting. the visit may hold some significance for abe back home where his approval ration are at an all-time low. now, finally, brian, golf is not officially on the agenda, but the weather for the next two days is sunny, high 70's, and zero chance of precipitation. brian: how much do you want to bet there is no golf? steve: i will take that bet. brian: how much do you bet 5 bucks? >> i will bet you 5 bucks that they hit the links for sure in the next two days. it's a two day visit. steve: i'm on griff's side on that. absolutely. brian: no golf. steve: abe loves to gulf. trump owns two courses down there. >> 100 bucks to the charity of your choice. brian: maybe the president didn't bring his clubs. maybe he left them. steve: he owns the clubs. ainsley: jillian is here today. jillian: i'm the tie
3:36 am
breaker, golf. steve: 100 percent. brian bib we will see how wrong you are. jillian: sounds like a plan. i'm always wrong. a manhunt is intensifying for an armed and dangerous grandmother wanted for murder. new surveillance video shows louis reese chatting with pamela hutchisons in florida. she killed her and stole her identity to cover her tracks. hutchinson coughed because they lookalike as you can see there. reese also killed her husband david in minnesota last month. police say she could get desperate enough to kill again. a cop killer fugitive cut a check for 15 grand. joanne chesimard. turns out she is one of the last descendants of that family. a judge says there was no legal reason to withhold the payment. chesimard escaped from new jersey in 1979 after serving a life sentence killing new
3:37 am
jersey state trooper. here is something you don't expect to see while waiting in the drive-thru line. >> what the [bleep] jillian: pretty typical reaction. sonic drive-in capturing a plane crashing down skidding across a busy road. the plane narrowly missing cars and homes in colorado springs, crashing into a guardrail before skidding to a stop. no one was hurt though, including the pilot and his passengers. how about this? an american making history at the rainy boston marathon. check it out. desiree linden becoming the first american woman to win the race since 1985. huge congrats to her. americans taking seven of the top 10 women spots. injured marine inspiring crowds carrying the american flag finishing his third straight marathon.
3:38 am
staff sergeant louise sanchez lost his leg after stepping on ied in afghanistan. just to be able to complete a marathon i feel like is just amazing. steve: even though it was a dreadful day. so many smiles after you cross that line. after heart break hill: speaking of heart break, today is tax day. tonight at midnight have you got to have it postmarked. janice dean is outside with some freebies that are available to folks coast to coast, right? janice: tax day is here. companies are giving you a break with food freebies and discounts. today we have some of those delicious deals on our plaza, starting off of the owner of kona ice of ford lee. we have jess, we have sam. tell us about your deal today for tax day. >> we are unique shaved ice experience. you can own shaved ice. for tax day we call it chill out day. because tax day can be a little stressful. it just reminds us to take a step back. relax with a nice kona ice.

>> possibly. i mean, it's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice. >> do you think the russians have something on donald trump? >> i think it's possible. i don't know. these are more words i never thought i would utter about a president of the united states but it's possible. ainsley: the big question will comey's own words end up complicating mueller's russia probe. here to weigh in on this is judge andrew napolitano. how could it complicate things for mueller. >> i was using the word possible. we may have talked about this early yesterday morning. ainsley: we did. >> lawyers and judges don't deal in possibilities. you deal in probabilities. this is how it could complicate things. i'm actually surprised that jim comey is doing this now while he is still a witness before the grand jury that bob mueller sum monda smond stil under the control of bob muller. he could still say something one of the dozens of interviews and book signings is about to have contradict something he told mueller or
3:47 am
contradict something he told to the grand jury. steve: do you think he is answering questions in a way that doesn't touch the grand jury testimony? >> i don't know that. steve: that would be smart. >> he is a smart guy. you may not agree with him but he is certainly a smart guy, university of chicago law school and federal prosecutor for most of his life. as a grand jury witness, he is permitted to discuss what went on before the grand jury. grand jurors in public, grand jurors are not. and the lawyers are not. so we don't know if he has testified already. we do know he has had many, many debriefings by bob mueller and bob mueller's team which consists of federal prosecutors and former fbi agents who used to work for him. if anyone of us had been a witness for bob mueller, we would have an agreement with mueller not to discuss the testimony in public for fear of some contradiction coming back to bite. ainsley: why is he doing it? money? >>
3:48 am
with that as i said yesterday. brian: trump. >> that's a political issue. one of the greatest book sales is right here underneath my hand. brian: not in any federal investigation. >> correct. you are not subject to a federal prosecutor saying brian i know you want to sell a book, the more you talk the more you are going to hurt our case. that's the conversation i expected bob mueller and jim comey had. i don't know if they had it. it's a unusual situation is he in. brian: didn't have the book checked out by bob mueller's probe before he published it don't believe the press reports about what we're looking at. they are not, in many cases, true. >> that's unheard of. also unique for mueller who has been fes fess -- you might remember when ken starr was independent council investigating bill clinton he gave interviews almost every day. never heard a word come out of bob mueller's mouth. proper way to do it.
3:49 am
yesterday was a surprise. steve: yesterday michael cohen had a day in court in front of judge kemba wood he wants a special master to lay eyes on all the documents and tapes if there are any that were seized. >> i agree with him. i also agree with the president that it should be a special master or judge wood herself. it should not be a team of federal prosecutors. even though the rules say it can be a team of federal prosecutors separate and distinct from the team that is prosecuting him. as a result of what judge wood did yesterday, when she ordered the fbi to make copies of everything, the electronic democrat tapped a the paper data, which is going to take a couple weeks, give one set of copies to the president's lawyers and one set of copies to mr. cohen's lawyers. they will argue about what's privileged and what's not. she inadvertently. maybe not inadvertently exposed the privilege. in order for the government to argue about whether a document is privileged, it has to have at document and see it. if the document is privileged, the government should never have had it and
3:50 am
the government should never see it. steve: oh, boy. >> i do believe the president is right when he argues that the attorney-client privilege is under assault. on the other hand, we have learned that they have been surveying, watching and investigating michael cohen since before donald trump was elected president. steve: going on for a while. judge, thank you very much. always exciting. always different. ainsley: did you hear this? a syrian refugee who survived a chemical attack is thanking president trump. >> i would love to -- like buy you a beer. ainsley: he wants to have a beer with the president. and he joins us live in the next hour. steve: switching gears. we are celebrating one of the most iconic cars in history, ford mustang, special coming up next. ♪ if you want to be a star ♪ baby, you can drive my car ♪ but, babe, i love you ♪

4:02 am
brian: mike tobin live in jerusalem. you are in a tough spot. israel almost never admits when they go on these strikes and other people are accusing them of doing just that what's the truth? >> well, i will get to that in one second. we are trying to 3eu7b down that information. i want to talk first about the chemical inspectors for the organization of chemical weapons. they are now due after delays to arrive in do you mea -- doyou mean in a tomorrow. the town where the attack is expected to have taken place. russian-syrian forces have been in control of douma since last thursday. russia said the inspectors have being held in demascus can you say following security concerns following the airstrikes last saturday morning. it should be noted douma wasn't hit. russia has continued to deny that a chemical attack happened in the first place. russian officials said the attack was annual elaborate hoax staged and filmed by the first responder group with the support of great britain. more than 40 people died in douma. world health organization,
4:03 am
when 500 people became sick showing symptoms consistent with toxic chemicals. a senior israeli military source tells fox news, the strikes were, quote, very superficial. this military force says if the aim was eliminate the syrian chemicals operation, quote, i'm not sure they have succeeded. the white house and the president himself have called the strikes a success. most recently president trump said he was pleased that all the missiles found their mark. >> with way over 100 missiles shot in, they didn't shoot one down. the equipment didn't work too well. every single one hit its target. think of that how genius. not one was shot. >> about these reports of a fresh round of strikes in syria overnight, the best information we're getting now is coming out of state run syrian tv. and that information that the reports of the missile strikes were really a false alarm. the images you see are the
4:04 am
syrian surface to air defenses reacting to that false alarm. steve, ainsley, brian, back to you. steve: so the syrians were just shooting at nothing? >> it sounds like it. lobbing that stuff in the air. it's dangerous, gravity works. missiles go up and missiles come down. steve: mike tobin, thank you. brian: now of course the president is saying word is he is trying to lobby some arab allies to take over for 2,000 troops that are there. that could be problematic. there is nobody that can do what we can do or represent what we can represent. we also have 4,000 over in jordan. so we will see where that goes. especially if they go for another chemical attack what our response is going to be. ainsley: other news, james comey, we had michael cohen down in court yesterday. that was a big story yesterday we will get to. but also james comey his book comes out today. is he going to be making the rounds. he has bret baier's show that's going to air next thursday. jake at that point per, jude woodward. the late show, rachel
4:05 am
maddow. you will be seeing a lot of him. on the interview on sunday didn't get as many viewers as we all thought. there were 9.8 million. which is a lot. if you compare it to the cmas they drew in 12 million. more people watching music than that interview. steve: george stephanopoulos. bill clinton's former press secretary they sat down with him. they had five hours of tape. what they produced was there have been a number of critics who said that it was the abc producers who edited every sound bite. it was super edited. and i have heard some people say it was super boring because we didn't really hear anything new. we have had in the last couple of days. nonetheless, the big question going forward, given the fact he sat down with george and sat down with others to promote the book, how many are going to buy the book? republicans don't like him because of what he did to trump and going after people in his administration. and then have you got all the democrats who feel that he is the reason hillary clinton does not have the keys to air force one today.
4:06 am
brian: what's amazing, too, getting a lot of criticism for personally attacking the president. comes out of nowhere and doesn't do miss his case any good. why did you do that? >> well, i'm not making funge the president. i'm trying to be an author which i have been all my life. i'm typing and can i hear my editor's voice. bring the reared with you, show them inside your head. by the way, not that it matters but i found his hands to be above average in size. steve: he is a little petty. ainsley: clinton advisors talked to the hill. nobody is satisfied with what he has been saying. we thought comey was factor in her loss. now, nobody can deny that perceptions were changed because of it patty soltis doyle and jennifer palmeriy have both come out and said he is no hero. they are not in favor of what he has done to hillary clinton. steve: right. and what has he done. joe digenova was on the channel last night. he said look, what this guy has done is way over the line. he is in jodi geoff have a's
4:07 am
words a troubled cop. >> tortured and troubled man. america's dirty cop has destroyed the integrity, the reputation and the legitimacy of the federal bureau of investigation single-handedly by his outrageous performance on abc. it is inconceivable to me that anyone can now think that he performed a legitimate law enforcement function during the investigation of hillary clinton. it's quite obvious that the dossier was a fake document. that it was absolutely purposefully used illegally by senior officials of the fbi and the department of justice. steve: yeah. brian: i think it's over the top to say is he a dirty cop. acts like he is a criminal colluding with the mob. he is not a dirty cop. i mean, his decisions are out there. steve: but did he break the rules? brian: i don't know. but just to say he is a
4:08 am
dirty cop means is he taking money behind the scenes or doing something underhanded. i think one thing abundantly clear, he is transparent to the point where nobody can -- no one can really agree with his thinking. steve: joe digenova worked at the department of justice under president reagan. for him to say such an extraordinary thing. i know he has sources in there he must feel that comey either broke a lot of rules or bent a lot of rules. ultimately though, did he incriminate himself on this book tour with george? here's the judge. >> i'm actually surprised that james comey is doing this now while he is still a witness before the grand jury that bob mueller summoned and still under the control of bob mueller. he could very sell say something in one of the dozens of interviews and book signings he is about to have which will contradict something he told bob mueller or contradict something he told to the grand jury. brian: couple of things,
4:09 am
too. another thing is abc is getting blow back about how they edited five hours to one hour, which is always tough and a challenge. for example, if you wanted to balance this out, in his book he talks about president trump, he looktalks ap to him. sitting down with fox news and saying that the investigation exxonner rates hillary clinton, she made bad decisions but we are done with that he says that jeopardizes the investigation and president obama is a very smart guy, he is a lawyer. i'm very surprised he did that. to me, that would be something that makes the final edit. ainsley: what do you think about him coming out with this book and speaking to the interview. brian: it's about me first. jim comey selling books. steve: open investigation. it looks a little diesy. let's talk about what's going on in southern california. it looks as if jerry brown has identified 400 national guardsmen to go and patrol but not do what the president wants. they rejected the national
4:10 am
guard's plan. and the state has said national guard who will be patrolling, they have nothing to do with immigration. they will not be allowed to fix vehicles. operate surveillance cameras, report suspicious activity. operate radios or provide mission support. including they won't allow them to buy gas or handle payroll. because that, in some way, could be related to law enforcement regarding immigration. ainsley: can you fight crime and drugs but nothing to do with immigration. steve: can't even gas up a truck that might be used on immigration patrol. ainsley: is this a way to compromise? steve: there is no compromise. ainsley: he originally said no guardsmen, we're not going to send any. but by doing this, all right, i'm going to please my republican constituents and allow them to go but, i'm going to limit what they can do. kristin gaspard saying enough is enough. she is the supervisor for the san diego county
4:11 am
supervisor board. and she said they're meeting today. they're going to vote on whether or not they are going to join the trump administration lawsuit because they are suing because california is saying we're following our own laws. we're not going to follow the federal laws. we are not going to cooperate with ice. listen. >> i want to show you the number of people who have weighed in this thin stack that support governor brown's actions on sanctuary state. now i want to share with you something quite interesting. the number of people who have communicated with me in san diego county, the people who do not support moving forward with governor brown's sanctuary state u this is really quite remarkable. san diegoens are finally waking up. finally saying enough is enough, governor brown. governor brown needs to follow the laws of our constitution. steve: the city of los alamos did vote to opt out of.

4:19 am
your town being destroyed. 10,000 or so civilians sheltering, eating trash and leaves in order to survive. nothing has gotten better. in fact, it's gotten worse. >> thank you so much for having me. i was exposed to assad's massacre and chemical massacre back in 2013. i lived for two years under siege and bombardment. i lived my entire life 80's lated from the war and 2011 when we marched in theou are blh freedom. here in the united states. but in syria. in many countries, we paid a big price of blood and sacrifices. so far we failed. now estimated 500,000 dead. in syria. not many people thought beshear assad eye doctor would be as evil as his dad. is he actually worse. when president obama gives cairo speech sheared. said fantastic. red line ignored. watched people die did nothing. what does it mean struck twice and put troops in that area? >> it means the world to me. because i have been looking out for the united states as a role model in freedom and democracy. just like millions, maybe billions of people around the world who live under dictatorship. look up to you guys. and see you as the example for life that we all want to have. that's why people are doing all those sacrifices back in my country. that's why a lot of people their lives.

4:27 am
formerly under chapter 179. steve: you buy a lot of big equipment and stuff. that's very helpful. >> we are a growing business and growing pretty quickly. can i now accelerate the depreciation. used to be a cap of $500,000 in depreciation. now we can depreciate the entire asset in the whole year. i don't have to borrow money. i can reintroduce the cash back into the business and before with 179, congress would always wait until the last week of session to determine if you are going to get the 179 for that particular year. steve: sure, they're always going to wait for an emergency. christina, you can kind of tell that there is a businessman as the chief operating officer of the country now, can't you? >> exactly. i appreciate it immensely. as a small business owner i look at it as i have had the opportunity to work with the chamber of commerce in cleveland. focused on small business. making sure that regulatory and legislative bills and initiatives are not going to tie our hands. and i think the federal government with the tax reform plan is also in keeping with what ohio is trying to do to promote small businesses. steve: bishop, ultimately, this means not only you have your money in your pocket but some of the people who work for you. >> right. the whole community gets an opportunity to expand. blacks right now in america are experiencing the highest levels of unemployment since the white house being president trump we knew this tax bill had to be in place right now.

4:47 am
and taxes. ainsley: how long did you live there in california? >> i lived there my entire adult life. i moved to texas in late 2011. i served in the state legislature for six years. and eventually i just had enough. i worked in the aerospace industry. and it got to the point where we had to take care of my in-law's. they were in failing health. and we needed a bigger house. and housing costs are so expensive in california because of the environmental regulations, the taxes, the development fees. we were able to move to texas and we have a far better quality of life in the state of texas. ainsley: yeah. i lived in that state. it's a wonderful state. the people are so nice. the taxes, you don't pay state income taxes. home prices are 1236 higher in the state of california. it's going to be $120,000 in the state of california. that's astronomical. big difference. a lot of people are moving out of california and doing the same thing you did? >> yeah. about a net of 100,000

5:07 am
he is breaking laws, he should go to jail. as it turns out the james comey does not read the president's tweets and doesn't follow him. he said this about that. >> that is not normal and that is not okay. he is is making stuff up. most importantly the president of the united states is calling for imprisonment after private citizen has he has done for a whole lot of people that criticized him. that is note acceptable in this country. i hope people read the book why the rule of law is such an important value in this country. key to that that the president doesn't get to decide who goes to jail. we're numb to it. we wake up in the morning see the president of the united states is accusing people of crimes without evidence and pronounces them guilty saying they should be in jail. that should wake all of us with a start. but there is so much it we're a little bit numb and that's dangerous. brian: well it is. one thing pretty clear reading his book he is not happy with the justice department under the obama years. there is a lot we don't know. evidently there are reports out basically at war with justice.

the justice department was telling andy mccabe who has huge problems, lied at least four times, shut down the clinton probe into the clinton foundation. there is huge problems with the fbi and justice department. there was problems with james comey doing his own thing. in some ways he had no choice because loretta lynch wouldn't do her job and wouldn't recuse herself. steve: good news, mr. comey feels he saved the federal bureau of investigation for america as you listen to his comments. there was a day in court yesterday for the president's attorney who has worked with him for many years, michael cohen. mr. cohen had gone to court because remember a couple days, over a week ago there was a raid on his hotel, his home and office, he would like to see a special master keep an eye on any documents and any earth evidence that was seized. kimba wood did not decide, by the way, mr. cohen, who are your clients? according to "the new york times" he said at
5:09 am
that since 2017 he has had 10 clients. seven were strategic advice and business consulting clients, and three others. she said who are the three others. well the president of the united states, this guy by the name of elliot brady, a republican fund-raiser and another person. she said who is it? that person doesn't want their name out. there was back and forth with the lawyers and eventually they revealed that name is sean hannity. ainsley: some of you wondering what was their business dealings? sean said i never gave him any money. invest in real estate. i asked him real estate questions and there was never a third party. >> here is the truth. michael cohen never represented me in in legal matter. i never retained his services. i never received an invoice. i never paid michael cohen for legal fees. i did have occasional, brief conversations with michael cohen. he is a great attorney, about legal questions i had.
5:10 am
they never involved any matter between me, or third party, a third group at all. i never asked michael cohen to bring this proceeding on my behalf. i have no personal interest in this legal matter. that's all there is. nothing more. so maybe the media can try to start focusing in on the biggest abuse of power scandal in this country or maybe forgotten men and women in this country. brian: they became obsessed with sean hannity as they are this morning on all other channels when there is no there there. perfectly logical if you're friendly with somebody you might ask him for legal help. as i say all the time, i can't tell you how many times i asked the judge legal things to help me with stories not in legal trouble but asked for legal advice. it is very logical to think there was a relationship. steve: i was talking last night to a lawyer friend down in florida and she said, she was concerned, are the days of privacy gone? she said what about his clients who had nothing to do with
5:11 am
president trump? their privileged information is out there. she said do they completely lose their privacy and privilege that has expanded outside of the attorney/client circle? just given the fact there was an investigation and he was there. ainsley: michael cohen wasn't saying sean hannity was his client. he was asked by the judge who did you give legal advice to. they could be trends, giving sean legal advice. brian: i don't think it is unusual for successful celebrity or billionaire to have one lawyer in particular and that lawyer to be dedicated to him. people are acting like that is crazy. that is not crazy in the world of entertainment. that is what the president was in, entertainment as well as business. ainsley: let us know what you think about it. curious. steve: meanwhile calls growing for jim jordan, the congressman from ohio to run as speaker of the house. does he want to the job? we her yes but brian will ask the congressman for sure next. brian: what happened when these

not an investigation when everyone knew it was an investigation. with president trump he allowed the country to believe the president is under investigation when in fact he wasn't and had been told by james comey that he wasn't. this guy just messed everything up from the get-go. frankly i don't think he has a whole lot of credibility. brian: now that is clear there was a war with the justice department. loretta lynch wouldn't recuse herself. fbi is at war with justice, they didn't trust each other during the obama years. not sure what the situation is now. as andy mccabe said over the summer in july that there was pressure from justice to shut undo the probing of the clinton foundation. isn't that interesting. >> that isn't surprising. we know where loretta lynch was with this. meeting with president clinton three days before hillary clinton was interviewed. andy mccabe doesn't have a whole lot of credibility about. when you look at this the thing that bothers americans so much, bothers the president, bothers
5:18 am
me is the double standard. mike flynn while not under oath makes a false statement to the fbi and gets indicted. andy mccabe lies four times to the fbi, twice under oath to michael horowitz, nothing happens to him. that kind of stuff drives americans crazy. the double standard how cheryl mills, secretary clinton's lawyer was treated compared to michael cohen compared to the raid that took place on personal and business locations, that is stuff that makes americans so frustrated. brian: the fact intent matters. set up a private server you break the law. we don't know if she meant it but i will draw up a exoneration letter. i don't know anyone buying at that. michael horowitz may 8th comes to, is going to be asked to testify in front of the oversight committee. how important is that, the michael horowitz the ig? >> michael horowitz we got his report on andy mccake, which was very good.

michael horowitz is very well respected. we're looking forward to his big report. supposed to be this month. reports and indications seem it will happen sometime in may. i look forward to question mr. horowitz. i look forward to getting to look at the report to find out what he discovered last year. brian: congressman, you're not shy giving a opinion. are you comfortable with kevin mccarthy as speaker? >> there is no race for speaker. paul ryan is the speaker. he will continue to remain in congress. if and when there is speakers race, i'm encouraged and by colleagues to be open to that. we better focus on the american people what we will do, if we don't, we won't be in the majority. there won't be a speaker race for republicans. if we do what the american people we told them we would do we'll be fine and deal with the speakers race after that. >> we foe he won't be speaker unless the freedom caucus is on the same page. as heavy kin mccarthy come to

new poll reveals that the democrat advantage in midterm elections is shrinking since the beginning of the year. one lawmaker has an idea why. >> there has been in the last couple years everything on the left especially has shifted toward identity politics. democrats used to care. they gave same talking points, bill clinton, schumer, pelosi, middle class, blue-collar workers, used to care about the wage rate. they have given up on that. they are losing election. i don't think this new identity politics passes but the hard left is messaging hard on those issues. we'll see. i don't think it's a winning message for them. ainsley: is he right. here so debate, rnc spokesperson, hayley mcdonald, and democratic section spokesperson jessica tarlov. >> there is some truth to it. we've been discussing this a lot since the 2016 election and the adverse effect that, adversary effect identity politics has had

on elections. if you look what is going on in the democrats we are winning elections. conor lamb ran exactly opposite to the methodology. i feel like congressman bratt's argument that the right uses identity politics. they are catering only one constituency white americans and specifically christians. ainsley: kayleigh, what is your response to that. >> that is not true at all. here is where the republicans get it right. our message is always about a common destiny to what ronald reagan's message is, what president trump's messages all americans should have access to the american dream. we don't group individuals in group, don't balkanize society. liberals smart enough to realize this is going wrong are saying things republicans critiqued democratic party for.

5:28 am
campaign trail she would make specific calls to certain groups but completely missed one group, the one david brat referred to white working class working in generational poverty anding ford by the new modern left. >> you just admitted it. the republican party is catering to the white working class. >> i said catered to all americans. i did not say, i said hillary clinton named certain groups and in doing so she missed an important group, whites who have lived in generational poverty. republicans by contrast, we don't put people in groups. we say every american should have access to the american dream. at core of our party. >> we agree with that on that fundamentally with one another but that is not at all how this has worked out. if you listen to president trump, look at nfl protest, when he called people, black athletes, sobs who was he catering to there? talking about judge curial what is going on there. language after muslim ban. what is going on there. the reason his support among

5:39 am
i think that is okay. brian: tpp was created to be a hedge against china because they were intimidating the people in the area. we were in for a while. the president didn't like the way it was constructed. hillary clinton said she didn't like the final product. so they pulled out. find out a way if we can get back in there under our terms. what have you done? is that indeed possible? >> well, look, it's possible if and only if there are major improvements to the existing tpp. that is the president's key point. he is not a big fan of these multilateral agreements. he would rather go country to country, bilateral talk with japan today and tomorrow. we'll see about this he wants to take another look at it. that's fine. he said this in davos quite a while ago. we'll see. we're going to go slow. i will report back to him had. brian: larry we got his story we want to bounce off you.
