tv Happening Now FOX News May 1, 2018 8:00am-9:00am PDT
conservative. >> a little bit. >> we have them on the show. we'll be tuned in for that. that's it. "happening now" starts right now. >> jon: we begin with a fox news alert on the iran nuclear cover-up with the white house confirming israel's trove of documents are real and supporting the stance that the nuke deal was based on a pack of lies. good morning. i'm jon scott. >> and i'm julie banderas. benjamin netanyahu laying out the case against iran unveiling evidence which shows tehran was not telling the truth about their nuclear program after signing the nuclear deal. all of this coming as president trump has days to decide whether to pull out of an agreement that he called horrible. >> i met the president in early march, president trump. i described to him what we have. i said that we'll move
immediately all this information to the united states, which we did. so we've been examining it simultaneously here in israel and you in america. this regime had a secret nuclear weapons program and they're trying under a very bad deal to get a nuclear arsenal. they shouldn't get it. >> jon: john roberts live with more. john? >> good morning, jon. the president has said for months that he believes that iran is cheating, saying today basically or yesterday and today in response to the new information that has been developed by israel, i told you so. mike pompeo, the newly-minted secretary of state also weighing in to say he believes that iran is cheating as well. mike pompeo saying in an off-camera gaggle aboard his aircraft "what i think it makes very clear is that the very least the iranians continue to lie to their own people." here's what the president said yesterday in a press conference. >> that is just not an
acceptable situation. i've been saying it's happening. they're not sitting back idly. they're setting off missiles which they say are for television purposes. i don't think so. we'll see what happens. what has happened over the last little while and what we've learned has shown that i've been 100% right. >> which is why the president despite intense criticism late last year de-certified the nuclear deal. iran said it was known when the jcpoa was crafted. there's a lot more to learn about what iran was up to. we're still scratching the surface, he says. the president has that may 12th deadline to decide whether or not to extend waivers on sanctions against iran or pull out of the jcpoa. also breaking overnight, new
information about what robert mueller is looking for in a potential sit-down interview with president trump. fox news has obtained a list of questions that were developed by the president's legal team back in the early part of march after consultations with the special counsel's office out in the public domain now with the president sits down for an interview, this is what he could face. breaking down into four categories. one category being michael flynn, the other jeff sessions, the other and russia, the june 9th meeting that trump jr. had with russian. and among the questions, what did you know about phone calls that the russian ambassador had with kislyak. what was the purpose of your january 27 dinner with mr. comey and what was said? what did you think and do regarding the recusal of mr. sessions? what did you think and what did you do in reaction to the news
of the appointment of the special counsel? what involvement did you have with the communications strategy including release of donald trump jr.'s e-mails? there's dozens of questions. the list would include powers of recall that the president could easily put him into a perjury trap. that's one thing they don't want to see him subjected to. the president was expects outrage that this list of questions got out. he said so disgraceful that the questions concerning the russia witch hunt were leaked to the media. no questions on collusion. you have a made-up phony crime as an investigation beginning with illegally leaked classified information. nice. the white house position is that the questions reinforce what the president, the white house and what the president's outside legal team have said about this investigation all along. listen to raj shah here. >> the overwhelming majority of those questions don't focus on the underlying premise of this special counsel, which was to
focus on the issue of collusion with the russian government. it's been over a year of investigation, there's been dozens of witnesses, thousands of documents, millions of pages of documents provided and zero evidence, not a shred of evidence. >> since the questions were developed in march, in consultation with a special counsel's office, the president has been aware of this line of questioning. but he's said to be very angry about the fact that they got out into the public domain and certainly the white house would like to know where they're coming from. some supporters of the president are saying having these questions out there reinforces the notion that the president should not sit down with the special counsel. is a maybe the reason why they got out there is to convince the president and his legal team to not do it. jon? >> jon: and the questions swirl. john roberts, chief white house con -- correspondent.
>> julie: and now some caravan members are being processed at the border. the justice department said they won't hesitate to punish those caught crossing illegally. 11 members have already been charged. thomas homan discussing the tense situation on "fox and friends" after announcing his plans to retire. >> i think that it's an attack on the sovereignty of this nation. do i think some of these people have a credible fear? do some of these folks, are they escaping fear and persecution? yes, some are. many aren't. many are taking advantage of a system with loop holes in it. >> julie: william la jeunesse is in mexico with the latest there. hi, william. >> hi, julie. the people behind me, the tents and so forth, they're members of the caravan. they hope in the next 24 hours,
they hope to be in the united states. so that will give them an opportunity to tell their story in what is called a credible fear interview. they can live and work in the united states legally until they see an immigration judge that will ultimate decide their fate. i want to show you something. this is the busiest port in the united states. 20,000 people come here a day. while the people you see behind me are part of the caravan, pan over here, these people are from mexico. they are also asking for asylum. they've been complaining hey, why do these people inside the gates, if you will, in the caravan, why are they getting a ferry? i saw a guy we met here friday asking for asylum. last night, 7:00 p.m., the first group, three mothers, four children and a 18-year-old man were welcomed in to the united states. that was good news to those here because they hope they could be next. >> i'm a little nervous, but also i want to get to the other side together with my family.
i thank god and the virgin of guadalupe that got me here. >> i have new video for you that shows you the process. so we're about a 1/4 mile from the u.s. kind of this very long walkway. the people here, this is the next group of individuals that will be interviewed to go to the united states. you can see a dozen mostly women and children. how fast will that take place? well, the u.s. says it all depends on documents, how complex the cases are, translators, detention space, et cetera. they move from the tent city, if you will, down to that corridor and then they'll get an interview with the u.s. it's a cooperative arrangement with the mexicans so they don't get a bottle neck. i spoke with mike pence about this. he said they have a right to a hearing. >> we're more than prepared. we have a limited capacity at
that border station for asylum seekers. when the space opens up, we will process those that are seeking asylum under the laws of this country. but the laws have to change. >> so the vice president saying one of the laws is catch and release, which requires the u.s. to release the people -- the women and children in about three weeks. he would like to end that practice. secondly people have to claim asylum in mexico. if they don't do that, they could be rejected at the border. those are two changes he would like to see. back to you. >> julie: thanks, william. >> jon: for more, let's bring in reporter alayna treen from axios. the people have to show that they were persecuted by their government in the home countries, right? >> right. one thing important to know is that with this caravan of asylum seekers from central america,
the president and his administration made this a focal point of the larger immigration debate in the country. >> julie: some of the tweets that we've seen when this caravan started traveling through central america, one of the things that several people pointed out, although they're making this case for lacks laws that these asylum seekers are coming to take advantage of the laws in the u.s. what is really happening is that they're trying to flee from gang violence like ms-13 violence or extortion laws or think they're going to be prosecuted from their own government so they're seeking asylum here. >> jon: there's a lot of cou countries where things are dangerous and bad. north africa, sri lanka. all over the place. doesn't -- just because they're in our hemisphere and part of a
contiguous land bring with the united states doesn't give them special rights, does it? >> that's it. that's what the trump administration is arguing. they think some of the laws around this -- first, it's important to note there's only so much the trump administration can do. there's international laws that oblige this u.s. to accept them. and then there's catch and release, legal loop holes that let them more easily come into the u.s. the things that the administration is looking at is potentially having this process happen in mexico and not the u.s. so people detained while or accepted while their case is going through the courts, which could take years before they're determined or denied asylum. so that happens in mexico and not the u.s. >> jon: thanks, alayna from axios. we appreciate it. alayna treene.
>> julie: and officials say this was an accident waiting to happen. plus, special counsel robert mueller has some questions for president trump. almost four dozen of them, in fact, according to "the new york times." that's right, somebody leaked the questions. so what do they do now and what do they tell us about the russia investigation?

( ♪ ) joni: think i'd give up showing these guys how it's done? please. real people with active psoriatic arthritis are changing the way they fight it. they're moving forward with cosentyx. it's a different kind of targeted biologic. it's proven to help people find less joint pain and clearer skin. don't use if you are allergic to cosentyx. before starting cosentyx

>> jon: a fox news alert. a russian fighter jet buzzed a u.s. military spy plane over the baltic sea this morning. officials say the incident was safe but unprofessional. the russian jet coming within 20 feet of the u.s. navy aircraft. the american crew says they never felt threatened. it's the first such incident between u.s. and russian aircraft since january.
>> fox news now obtaining a list of questions for president trump from special counsel robert mueller. those questions first reported by "the new york times" thanks to a leaker. president trump taking to twitter today blasting the leak. i'm joined by brad blakeman, former deputy assistant to george bush and jim kesler, policy director for chuck schumer. these leaks are disgraceful, but it's not the first time. so should we be surprised? i guess not. brad, who do you believe is behind the leaks? >> i believe the fbi, including comey, who admitted he was a leaker. this should never happen. mueller is supposed to be the consummate professional, yet leaks are coming out of his investigation. we should never know the questions that are going to be posed to the president. yet we do. there's a silver lining. that is this. with leaking in washington -- i've been around 30 years.
if there was anything there there with the conspiracy to commit a crime, we would have known. these questions are targeted not so much to collusion by why comey was fired. i would tell the president, if i was his attorney, to tell comey to pound sand, the president can fire him for any reason or no reason at all. >> julie: jim, the leaks are coming from inside mueller's team. there's many on mueller's team that have been found to be biassed against trump, including members of the fbi. james comey loyalists that once worked under the director. could comey be involved here? it wouldn't be the first time that he leaked sensitive information to the press in the past. >> i've been in this town 30 years as well. i'll give you my 100% lead pipe money back guarantee who the leaker was. >> julie: please share. >> the leaker was donald trump or somebody associated with
donald trump. it's obvious. when you read "the new york times" story -- >> julie: why would he take a risk like that? that would be pa horrible risk to take. you think the president is going to actually risk making a look like this? >> absolutely. >> julie: if it were found out that the president leak this? it would be catastrophic. i don't know if the president would make a mow like that, brad. >> this is wishful thinking and great spin on the part of the democrats. you're right, julie, if this got out that trump's team leaked this, could be catastrophic. we know the fbi has a history of leaking. there's a bias against the president. there's no better place for the fbi to go than to "the new york times." why? they've had a longstanding relationship doing the same thing. >> there's no better place for donald trump to go than "the new york times." >> he hate "the new york times." >> the perfect place to go the
fbi has no reason to leak it. the questions are legitimate and there's no stormy daniels and nothing else in there. donald trump has every reason to leak it because he needs to show that there's no credibility to this investigation. he's got motive and he has the weapon. if you read "the new york times" story, there's a little hint in there a little where's waldo hint that it came from donald trump and his team when they talk about the attribution of where this came from. >> julie: i didn't see waldo in that one. i don't know. >> the line is -- >> julie: so you're thinking the president of the united states actually leak add story to "the new york times," the one publication that he hates more than any on this planet. and then he said they leaked to it the media. you have a made-up phony crime. collusion and illegally leaked
classified information. nice. so -- >> yeah. that's what i think happened. >> julie: seems very unlikely. >> seems obvious. it's the obvious think out there. >> julie: brad and jim, thanks very much. i wish we had more time. >> i wish we did, too. >> julie: thank you. again, by the way, you're going to be watching tonight. we're going to be watching the debate very closely. switching gears. >> jon: the debate will be here at 6:30 p.m. live on the fox news channel. big race in an important state. so you're going to watch to catch that with bret baier and martha maccallum. america's election hq 2018. gets underway tonight, you could say. the white house delays imposing tariffs on many of our closest allies. why the european union says the exemption on steel and aluminum
tariffs doesn't go far enough and what the eu wants to have happen. israel said iran lied to the world. more on the secret files that show why tehran cannot be trusted and how will this impact president trump's decision on the iran nuclear deal. israel's ambassador to the u.n. joins us next. >> when they did the nuclear deal with iran, it was premised, its imme -- implementation on that they would come clean. they lied one item after the other. let's see. if these packs have the same number of bladder leak pads, i bet you think bigger is better. actually, it's bulkier. always discreet doesn't need all that bulk to protect. because it's made differently. the super absorbent core quickly turns liquid to gel, for drier protection
that's a lot less bulky. looks like good things really do come in small packages. always discreet. for bladder leaks. 4 out of 5 people who have a stroke, their first symptom... is a stroke. 80 percent of all strokes and heart disease? preventable. and 149 dollars is all it takes to get screened and help take control of your health. we're life line screening... and if you're over 50... call this number, to schedule an appointment... for five painless screenings that go beyond regular check-ups. we use ultrasound technology to literally look inside your arteries... for plaque which builds up as you age- and increases your risk for stroke and cardiovascular disease. and by getting them through this package, you're saving over 50%. so call today and consider these numbers: for just $149 you'll receive five screenings that could reveal what your body isn't telling you. i'm gonna tell you that was the best $150

[ child offscreen ] hey! let's basement. and thanks to these xfi pods, the signal reaches down here, too. so sophie, i have an xfi password, and it's "daditude". simple. easy. awesome. xfinity. the future of awesome. >> julie: new fallout from the
white house about delaying tariffs on steal from the european union, canada and mexico. the eu saying the move doesn't go far enough. they're calling for a permanent exemption. the eu has said they would retaliate for any tariffs. >> just in on the fate of the iran nuclear deal, as the clock ticks down to a deadline for president trump's decision on whether to withdraw from the agreement after benjamin netanyahu presented new evidence that tehran maintain as secret plan to built nuclear weapons and then repeatedly lied about it, all before signing the 2015 deal. >> i think it just confirms and reconfirms what we've known. which is that the iranians were lying about their program for decades. you know that you have a country that has lied repeatedly, obviously -- >> why trust them now? >> my concern about the nuclear
deal had been the verification regime. if anything, this just makes it even more clear that you can't have a verification regime that gives the iranians weeks to clean up a site before you can go in there. >> jon: joining us israeli ambassador to the u.n., danny dannon. you've written a piece in the "wall street journal." you argue the nuclear deal has a lot of holes and ought to be renegotiated. the president of france, the chancellor of germany seem to disagree. how would you argue with them? >> good morning, jon. after we saw the prime minister exposing all the lies of the iranians, why should we truth them? they lead to us repeatedly. we look at that today, it's a bad agreement. there's too many flaws. i mentioned a few of them in my
article. first about the inspection. you need to be able to inspect everything, including military facilities. secondly, the ballistic missile program. they should stop with them. the third, they should have an expiration date. what happens then? lastly, what they're doing with the funds today. they sponsor terrorism all over the world. in lebanon, syria. the europeans should ask themselves why continue with this agreement when it's not working. >> jon: the agreement resulted in tens of billions of dollars, some cash, being released to the iranians. what are they doing with that money? >> look at syria, for example. 80,000 militants that are being paid by iran. actually hiring people from afghanistan, pakistan, bringing them to syria. they build bases in order to build an army next to our border. they want to do exactly what
they did in lebanon. to take over syria and to make sure that they have control over syria. we will not allow it. we said it very clearly. we won't allow them to put those bases next to our border. last february, they sent a uav with explosives into israel. we intercepted this. it shows they're investing the money in promoting terrorism. that's why this agreement should be changed. i believe that president trump may 12 will send a clear message they won't continue to do what they want. >> jon: many suggest the horse is out and you're just closing the barn door if you renegotiate this agreement or try to withdraw the u.s. from it. how do you answer those concerns? >> if we sit idly by today, it will be time before they implement their plans. we showed the facts. the intelligence forces are
capable to bring out of tehran their plans. when you read what they wrote, they want hundreds of missiles, they want nuclear capabilities. they want to threaten israel and the entire middle east. we shouldn't wait by seven years. president trump is ensuring leadership by saying to the europeans, i will not dance with you when it comes to going to right direction. >> israel's ambassador to the united nations, danny danon. thanks very much. >> thank you. >> julie: isis claiming responsibility for twin suicide blasts in afghanistan. journalists prompted. prompting worldwide condemnation. a live report next. police applauding the capture of a suspect they believe is the golden state killer. now there's concerns about privacy. so i'm not happy
unless my hands are dirty. between running a business and four kids, we're busy. auto insurance, homeowner's insurance, life insurance policies. knowing that usaa will always have my back... that's just one less thing you have to worry about. i couldn't imagine going anywhere else. they're like a friend of the family. we are the cochran family, and we'll be usaa members for life. save by bundling usaa home and auto insurance. get a quote today.
>> jon: isis claims responsible if i for the attacks in kabul that killed 25 on monday, many journalists. officials calling the bombings an attack on the global media. benjamin hall is live with the latest. >> this is the deadliest day for journalists around the world since attacks in 2015. it was not the only attack in afghanistan. an american soldier was also
killed. this is a reminder of the increasing pace of attacks being carried out by the taliban and isis in that country. the first aattack happened at 8:00 a.m. 25 are dead, 45 wounded. nine journalists among them. it happened in a heavily fortified district near nato and embassies and a reminder of the lack of security in the afghan capitol and afghanistan himself. the first bomber blew himself up. the second dressed and posing as a camera man waited until journalists aarrived and blew himself up and targeting them. also yesterday in eastern afghanistan, a u.s. soldier he was killed in a combat operation along with several afghan troops. little else is known about that case. in kandahar, eight romanian soldiers were killed in a car bomb that left 11 children dead at a school.
and a bbc reporter was also shot and killed. u.s. and afghanistan forces have ramped up attacks. just last week, the taliban announced the start of their spring offensive now that the weather is changing. they've said they will target u.s. troops specifically. we know the u.s. is beefing up their presence sending over hardware from iraq and syria. expect the coming months to be bloody to say the least. jon? >> jon: thanks, benjamin. >> julie: the deadly attacks more proof that the war in afghanistan is far from over. but will it change u.s. strategy? general jack keane is a retired four-star general, former vice chief of staff and a fox news senior strategic analyst. thank you so much, general ke e keene, for talking to us. is afghanistan at risk for being
lost? >> no. president trump made a commitment to afghanistan. not to establish a timetable and to stick with it. we've increased our troops there somewhat. supposedly we were going to pressure pakistan to stop giving safe havens. i haven't seen that yet. it's largely a defense strategy. what we're trying to do is not lose. niece the direction that we were moving in when obama pulled out all of the forces and even when we were succeeding, when general petraeus and mcchrystal were in charge, he gave them 25% less of the forces theyn't whatted. even with that, they turned the tide. president obama pulled all of the forces out prematurely. so that's -- >> julie: that set us back. >> that's why we're here right now. there's no political will in our
country to put the forces back in and do what needs to be done. so our strategy is considerably more defensive. >> julie: i know the u.s. is not there to win but president trump doesn't like to lose, especially with terrorists. what is the outcome if the u.s. were to pull out or do we send troops back in? it is a controversial decision, but one that needs to be done. otherwise, this war will never end. it's been going on for four decad decades practically. >> yeah, the president's instincts of pulling out of here as he said about syria, his instincts are to cut our losses and pull out of here. but that would be a huge strategic mistake. because then you're exposing to the american people will quadruple. the taliban won't go outside of afghanistan. they're not going to attack
other people. they want to take control of their country like before. but they will tolerate other radical islamic groups like al-quaida prior to 9-11 to come in and establish safe havens. that is the danger and the threat and the problem we have if we don't stay the course. >> julie: for those that are opposed to the war and the u.s. involvement there, take a look at this latest attack. 25 people were killed, specifically journalists were targeted. nine journalists and a famous afghan photographer was shot who works for france. he leaves behind six children and a two week old baby girl. he's worked for 15 years documenting this war in afghanistan. if the goal isn't to win in afghanistan, many would wonder and question why are we still there then. >> as i said, i think the reason is because the security of the american people. it will be a safe haven for
international terrorists and prey on europe and ourselves. i do think that there is a way to turn the momentum to our favor. we have to shut down the safe a havens have inside pakistan. there's two of them. we haven't done it yesterday. >> julie: more pressure on pakistan. they need to stand up to the plate. >> taking their money isn't going to do anything from them. they'll get it from china. we should sanction their leaders and chief of staff and military and the chief of the intelligence service and sanction them internationally. if they don't shut the safe havens down, we should physically shut them down. that's what we should tell them. it should have been done a long time ago. >> julie: would send a message. general jack keane, thank you. >> good talking to you. >> julie: jon? >> jon: concrete and debris
going everywhere after a fiery wreck on a highway. and a suspect in the infamous golden state killings finally arrested. the way in which he was captured raised questions about privacy. >> shakes you to the core. really does. mostly when you grew up of the fear of him and to find out he lived around the corner. excuse me a minute... hi dad. no. don't try to get up. hi, i'm julie, a right at home caregiver. and if i'd been caring for tom's dad, i would have noticed some dizziness that could lead to balance issues. that's because i'm trained to report any changes in behavior, no matter how small, so tom could have peace of mind. we'll be right there. we have to go. hey, tom. you should try right at home. they're great for us. the right care. right at home. they appear out of nowhere. my secret visitors.
appearing next to me in plain sight. hallucinations and delusions. these are the unknown parts of living with parkinson's disease. what stories they tell. but for my ears only. what plots they unfold. but only in my mind. over 50% of people with parkinson's will experience hallucinations or delusions during the course of their disease. and these can worsen over time, making things even more challenging. but there are advances that have led to treatment options that can help. if someone you love has parkinson's and is experiencing hallucinations or delusions, talk to your parkinson's specialist. because there's more to parkinson's. my visitors should be the ones i want to see. learn more at moretoparkinsons.com
>> julie: a terrifying scene on a los angeles highway. a big rig crashed into the median, rolling on to another car igniting a fire. the truck driver said he was cut-off by another car when changing lanes. three people were injured, including one person trapped in a car under the truck. officials say two people that were injured are in critical condition. another person is in fair condition. >> jon: new developments in the
golden state killer case. investigators say they plan to test dna evidence to link murders. the 72-year-old former cop is suspected in at least 50 rapes and 12 murders in the 70s and 80s in california. police comparing evidence with genetic information posted to an online ancestry website. that move is pasparking new privacy concerns. here to discuss, heather hanson, morgan wright. so when i first heard, morgan, that this case was solved through an online dna database, i thought when a dumb criminal. he sends his dna to a database. it wasn't that at all. it's a public database run by volunteers. they can look at dna that goes
back to your grandparents and great grandparents and from that figure out the lineage. >> it's narrowing down the suspects. i worked a case where the doctors that did the o.j. case testified in our case. where we have come from in 20 years with dna. we can do much more with smaller amounts. this is excellent work. it's a new tactic. it's open-sourced. so the question will be, i don't think the tactic is wrong. i think the issue is privacy. how much privacy does somebody have in famial dna. >> jon: they didn't test his dna at first. they got a sample that he throw away a soda can or something. they got his saliva and corroborated the dna. it does raise interesting
privacy concerns about how cops are using this stuff. >> of course it does. raise as ton of conditions. the database in this case was a public database. there was no need for a warrant. it was out there. a lot of the databases like 23 and me, ancestry.com, those are private. so if you submitted your dna to those databases, it's more likely police would need a warrant to get access to that database. that being said, the supreme court ruled on dna acquisition from criminals and what they said is dna is similar to fingerprints. more and more courts are doing what this case has done. giving access to police officers and investigators to get the dna to solve crimes. it's a risk benefit analysis. we're measuring the privacy concerns about capturing terrible criminals. courts lean towards capturing
criminal. >> jon: we talk about privacy online. there's no more privacy anymore. look at the facebook argument going on. isn't there a benefit to the public of solving some of these crimes through dna? >> as a former detective and investigator, i'd say yes. this is place week out here. there's a lot of good cops out here. i can tell you no, good cop wants an innocent person going to jail. you always want to find the person. these tactics will ensure. one of the people that was convicted of the crimes this guy was looked at was in prison for 40 years. we have the technology to make sure that it doesn't happen again. it ought to be used more.like anything else, this will get to the point the supreme court will weigh-in on it. don't kid yourself. information that 23 and me and more get is anonymous but still
getting sold. still a look of privacy from the private side. >> jon: the two murders that they're attributing to the golden state killer were originally pinned on a guy named craig coley that spent almost 40 years in prison for killing his ex-girlfriend. he didn't do it and we know that now. >> it's amazing what can be done for dna. there's a lot of rape kits that haven't been tested. a lot of dna that we don't know what we can do with. we are able to do more and more advances. the issue is the courts have not caught up. they never do. they're way behind technology. that means the consumer has to be more educated. know when you put your dna out there, you're not just exposing yourself. you're exposing your extended family members and your children's children. the benefit outways the risk. if we can capture more
criminals, it's for our good. >> it's a fascinating case. a fascinating way to use dna evidence. really interesting. heather and morgan, thank you both. >> thanks, jon. >> julie: we're hours away from the gop senate primary for west virginia airing here on fox news today. we're going to take a look at the state of the race and the top candidates that will face off against each other tonight. , hotel, car and activity all in one place. ♪ i had a very minor fender bender tonight!
in an unreasonably narrow fast food drive thru lane. but what a powerful life lesson. and don't worry i have everything handled. i already spoke to our allstate agent, and i know that we have accident forgiveness. which is so smart on your guy's part. like fact that they'll just... forgive you... four weeks without the car. okay, yup. good night. with accident forgiveness your rates won't go up just because of an accident. switching to allstate is worth it.
>> julie: fox news is counting don to the west virginia gop primary debate. it airs here on fox news. all of them gunning for a shot at unseating democratic senator joe manchin in november. it's a tight one. peter doocy is live in morgantown, west virginia with more. hi, peter. >> julie, mitch mcconnell is obviously best known as a leader of congress. now he's being described like the leader of a drug cartel by one of the republican candidates for senate here in west virginia. >> one of my goals as u.s. senator will be to ditch cocaine mitch. >> cocaine mitch is new to the race. so what is that about? the don blankenship campaign says it's all about mcconnell's wife, the transportation secretary, elaine chao.
they made this representation in a campaign release. his father-in-law has given mitch and his wife millions over the years. the company was implicated in smuggling cocaine from columbia to europe hidden aboard a ship with coal it in. that's why we've deem him cocaine much. blankenship will share the stage with evan jenkins who is doing himself to establish himself as the deepest connection to president trump. he said he's been there for trump when the attorney general, patrick morrisey wasn't. >> patrick morrisey's record is despicable. he's not being honest. he was a never trumper. >> but morrisey disputes that charge and working hard to remind primary voters that jenkins, the frontrunner according to a fox news poll was once a democrat. >> i voted for him at the
convention. i did ads comparing myself with him in the 2016 campaign. this is a desperate campaign. his liberal background is being exposed. >> more than 31,000 ballots have already been cast. this is an effort to convince everybody that hasn't voted that they have the most compelling case to challenge joe manchin in the fuel. julie? >> julie: so is the mcconnell office asking about his new office? cocaine mitch? really? >> the senate office for mcconnell is not commenting. >> julie: i mean, if you're going call names, come up with something better than that. that's pathetic. thanks, peter. you can catch the big debate
