tv Outnumbered Overtime With Harris Faulkner FOX News May 1, 2018 10:00am-11:00am PDT
we are back tomorrow at noon eastern. up to melissa francis who is in for harris faulkner. >> melissa: a fox news alert for you now, we have obtained the full list of questions robert mueller reportedly has for the president. a line of inquiries that may show what the special council is looking for. this is "outnumbered" over time and i melissa francis in today for harris faulkner. fox has gotten his hand on the list of questions. the special counsel office reportedly developed for a possible sitdown interview with president trump nearly 50 questions in all. and they range from his ties to russia to his firing of fbi director james comey and whether he tried to interfere with the investigation itself. the president lashing out at the publication of the questions which were first reported in "the new york times" tweeting "so disgraceful that the questions concerning the russian witch hunts were leaked to the media. no questions on collusion.
oh, i see. if you have made up of phony crime, collusion, that never existed and an investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information. nice!" lie from the white house north lawn, what is the talk about this list of questions? >> i'll tell you one thing, if robert mueller is going to ask 50 questions to president time, he better set aside an enormous block of time because of the time you asked the initial questions in four or follow-ups, this would take probably six to eight, maybe even ten hours to get through this entire list of questions, but this all came out of negotiations between the special counsel's office and president trump's outside legal team as to what the parameters might sitdown interview that mueller might have with trump. it's basically into four broad categories. michael flynn, former national security advisor, the firing of james comey, jeff sessions and his recusal, and in that
june 9th 2016 meeting that donald trump jr. had with russian attorney. let's run through six of the 50 questions for you. these are some of the ones that i thought were most pertinent. first of all, regarding flynn, what is your knowledge of calls to general flynn made with sergey kislyak in late december of 2016? another question, what was the purpose of the january 27th dinner meeting you had with comey? was loyalty discussed? what was the purpose of the may 12th tweet that comey better hope there are no tapes? what did you think and what did you do regarding attorney general sessions recusal and what did you think and what did you do in reaction to the news that the appointment of the special counsel and what knowledge should you have regarding the june 9th trump tower meeting? when did you become aware of the meeting? also another question in their regarding the statement that came out when the president was on the way back from the g20 about that meeting and the disclosure of donald trump jr.'s emails regarding it. if the house points out that
there were only a couple, three questions that have anything to do with whether or not the trump campaign colluded with russia to try to throw the election. because the overwhelming majority of those questions don't focus on the underlying premise of the special counsel which was to focus on this issue of collusion with the russian government. it's been over a year of investigation, there have been dozens of witnesses, thousands of documents, millions pages of documents provided in zero evidence. he has been cooperating at the white house with this probe, but we are a little frustrated that the focus of it is not near where it was created to focus on which is collusion questions. >> i'm also told the president is outside the legal team is not happy when they dish these
questions allegedly to "the new york times" but there are some analysts who say this really plays to the faction of the president supporters who were saying there's no way that he should sit down for an interview with robert mueller because if you look at the questions, first of all the volume near 50 as you pointed out and the ambiguity of a lot of these questions would require somebody who has an extraordinary memory to be able to accurately recount everything that happened to put themselves into a perjury trap. >> melissa: i'm deeply suspicious of everything around us, why they were leaked, how much. meanwhile, they have this reaction to the mueller questio question. >> a couple things, some things that you have to analyze and that is how many of these questions go to the issue of obstruction of justice. these are less questions and more topics.
you can imagine for example any single one of them, a question about what did you discuss with the russians in the oval office for example? i think that was one of the questions. if that would just be the >> tom dupree served under george w. bush. thanks for joining us. what is your initial reaction to the question? >> my official reaction here is number 1, this just underscores the breadth of the mueller investigation. there's a lot of questions that cover a lot of topics, that cover a broad time period. so they showed that this is fast becoming an obstruction investigation rather than a russian investigation. i also think the fact that mueller is clearly putting a spotlight on the president's intent should be a big warning signal to the president that mueller is looking at what was the intent in firing comey, what was the intent in dealing with sessions. these are all relevant to questions of obstruction of justice or other sorts of things that could pose legal jeopardy
for the president. if i was the president's advisers, even though trump is not a target, the questions show what he was thinking. >> who leaked them and do you think they're real? >> my understanding is that these are questions that originally came from mueller's team as part of the negotiation process as to whether the president would sit down with mueller. the questions may have been taken in by the president's legal team, transcribed by the president's legal team and leaked by someone that was not a member of the president's legal team. i suspect the motive in doing this was to send up a big red flag that mueller's investigation is much broader than i think a lot of people may have suspected. >> yeah. so why do you think it wasn't leaked why someone on the president's team? seems like the way you laid it out, would benefit the president's legal team? >> i say that because i think in the original new york times report, they were careful to
qualify they didn't get this from the president's team. that doesn't mean someone gave it to someone else that was a friend and trustworthy and not on the president's team. whoever did this clearly had a very strategic motive and pushing this thing out to the public sphere. >> there's one that jumped out at me that hasn't been highlighted. so for the folks in the booth, what knowledge did you have of any outreach by the campaign including paul manafort to russia and assistance to the campaign? what do you think of that one? >> when i see a question like that, i think mueller knows something that we don't know. >> or he wants everyone to think that. it could be a trap. >> that's true. it could be a trap. i suspect that we are making -- we're all making a very big mistake if we think the reason that bob mueller is asking the questions because he doesn't know the answer. i think bob mueller knows the answer to a lot of these questions. his motive to get the president to say his version of events is
to potentially set the president up for legal jeopardy or a minimum to get the president nailed down to a particular sequence of events and timeline to confirm or rebut the evidence that mueller has collected. >> a lot of really dangerous questions in the sense that they say they're softball questions. you heard alan dershowitz say it. there's a ton of danger in there. many were open-ended. what were you thinking when you sent this tweet. the second one, what discussions did you have regarding terminating the special counsel and what did you do when that consider was reported in january of 2018. this is that trap of obstruction trying to lure the president into that. i mean, do you think that maybe these were floated in order to sort of have an open conversation to convince the president not to go in and sit down and talk to the mueller team? there's so much potential jeopardy. >> i think that could have been the motive. the other thing i'd say, with the open-ended questions like
that, this underscores the importance if the president is allowed to sit down with mueller, you have to make sure that he's prepared, reviewed logs, e-mails, what he was thinking, what he was seeing and what he night have known. if mueller says what did you know, you're exposing yourself to various legal jeopardy. >> can't he say i don't remember that specifically? it was awhile ago? >> you can say that. the problem is a lot of witnesses, this president as well, it's embarrassing to say i don't know. you want to go helpful, show that you're in command of the situation. all of that poses serious legal risks that turn ott you're wrong or don't remember. >> interesting time. thank you. >> thank you. >> for more, let's bring in the freedom caucus member, andy
biggs. let's start with the questions at hand. do you question the voracity of it? what do you think? >> i mean, it's not surprising that they've been leaked obviously. things have been leaking from robert mueller is a sinking ship because it's full of leaks. the real question that mr. mueller wants to get at and what is problematic for me, this shows that he's clearly outside the channels of what he was supposed to be looking at. he's no longer looking at russian interference and if there was some conspiracy between the trump campaign and the russians. he's investigating president trump. he's not investigating a crime. that's why you have the culpable middle state questions left in there that are wide open. he's trying to find out if president trump will say, i knew this or i thought this or i
intended this. that's important if you're going to set up a crime. >> these are coming out of mueller's team. what would be their hand in leaking the questions? >> on one hand, he has to convince the people that support him that he's doing something that he's on to something? that makes it looks like he's going to be going after obstruction of justice. he's trying to sway the folks within his own supporters that might be saying, look, we've been going a long time. we better get something done. >> to that point, i don't mean to interrupt you, adam schiff is something that doesn't feel that way. he didn't feel bolstered by these questions. listen to what he had to say. >> i want this special counsel to be looking at the issue of money laundering. those questions are not included. does that mean the special counsel is observing the redline the president has tried to draw? in my view, the president is not
permitted to draw a red line. >> so congressman, not everybody behind the counsel is happy with these questions. >> and i agree with that. what adam is asking for, he's asking for questions outside of money laundering. that's getting dipped to the whole thing. they want the whole people -- the people that want to bring president trump down, they're willing to go wide and broad to investigate anything. that's why they're investigating him. they're not investigating the crimes they were asked to investigate. >> so you're a member of the house freedom caucus. they drafted impeachment articles against rod rosenstein. you think that will get traction? >> that's the last option. what we've looked at -- the things that -- what you and i have been discussing. mr. mueller is way outside the bounds. mr. rosenstein is supposed to be
overseeing him. i think we look at it and we say, well, this is -- maybe it's aspirational, maybe it's to a point of discussion internally. i don't think it's ready to move certainly any time soon. >> are you afraid of the backlash that might come from this? >> you know, we get backlash over everything the freedom caucus does. the people are tired of watching the department of justice and the things that we discovered with the doj and the fbi at the highest levels where there's appears to be corruption for political purposes, to gain control of the presidential election. i think people expect us to do something in congress and that includes the investigation. that -- maybe sometimes you have to say maybe we should impeach somebody. >> no matter who you blame for it, a lot of americans have lost faith in the department of justice in terms of not being
political and worrying about that. our criminal justice system is politicized and used for political gain. how do you think you restore the faith of the american people now? >> what goes a long way, to remove the miscreants there. people say there's two sets of justice. if you're the elite, you're different than if you're in the field. look at cheryl mills. the attorney for hillary clinton. she gets to control the process. if you're mr. cohen representing president trump, you're out of luck. >> thanks for joining us. we appreciate your insight. >> thanks. >> we want to show you this right now, this is secretary mike pompeo at the state
department. back on u.s. soil. he's there in order to address employees at the state department. he is striking quite a contrast with his predecessor here on what some are calling a p.r. trip, a feeling of good will there. you can see, we're not going to listen to his comments. he's talking to folks at the state department there and trying to bolster morale as he steps in to the new job. we'll be right back.
>> shepard: okay. this is secretary of state mike pompeo. this is the first time he's addressing employees at the state department. let's listen in here. >> but alongside that is that i feel like i know you. i've worked alongside you as a member of congress when i traveled. i've had the chance to watch when i was traveling around the world and i would go into an embassy and arrive late at night and there's folks in the
political sector toiling, doing great work on behalf of america. i have a great deal to learn about the state department and how we perform our mission. but as people, i'm confident that i know who you are. i know you came here, you chose to be with a civil servant or a foreign service officer or come to work in many other capacities and to do so because you're patriots and great americans and you want to be an important part of america's face to the world. my mission will be to lead you and allow you to do that, the very thing you came here to do. [applause] i will get to as many parts of this organization as i can. as i said in my testimony, that
i'll travel, get out to usad as quickly as i can to see their important part of our mission as well. i know that every task, every endeavor that each of you undertakes is a critical part of achieving ultimate objective, which is to deliver president trump and american's foreign policy around the world, to be the diplomatic face that achieves the outcomes that america so desperately needs to achieve in the world. i've told this story a couple times. it's worth repeating. best lesson forgot was from a fellow named sergeant first class petri. he was in my platoon when i was 22, 23 years old. i arrived there. i hopped out of the jeep. he said lieutenant, you'll do well to shut up for a while. i think he meant that. [laughter] what i took him to say, it's important to listen and learn. i know a enormous around to
listen and learn from you. i talked about getting back our swagger. i'll fill in what i mean by that. but it's important. the united states diplomatic corps needs to be in every corner, every stretch of the world executing on behalf of this country. it's my humble undertaking to achieve that. i look forward -- [applause] thank you. i look forward to meeting just as many of you as i can get a chance to do, to learning from just as many of you as i can and to leading the team on to the field. i know that we will deliver for this president and for this country. thank you. may god bless each of you. i'll see you around the building. thanks. [applause]
>> okay. you can see that was secretary state mike pompeo there delivering what was very much a pep rally. that's the first time that he's addressed his employees there at the state department, making comments like the state department that we need to get our swagger back, talking about the respect that he has for those employees, calling them patriots and great americans saying his mission is to lead them, that they have made a decision. they're toiling, doing the work on behalf of the american people. he told the story when he was told on another mission that you do well to shut up and listen. some pretty candid words. he listened to them, leading them, how much respect he has for them. a totally different tone we're led to believe than his predecessor. we're told morale is very slow right now. obviously he's going there,
putting a great effort into bringing the troops back together. this is something that, you know, he's given a lot of credit for. he's very good at working with people and talking to people and he's good at the p.r. aspect of these various jobs, which is sometimes forgotten. let's bring in ted yoho. one of the jobs at the forefront right now has to do with iran. and these latest developments that we have seen in terms of the evidence that benjamin netanyahu put forth 24 hours ago and how it's received and what we do from here. what do you think, sir? >> melissa, thanks for having me on. i think this is a very critical point that we move forward on. what we have seen with iran, anymore the camp that it's a bad deal. should never have happened. we should make sure we hold iran, their neat to the fire, that they stay in compliance with the jcpoa.
there's a question if they have the security agreements that were not launched -- icbms. they've overstepped some of those things. >> iranians saying on twitter and other places where they put out statements saying if the president holds out of this deal, they'll be forced to go back into ramping up their nuclear operations. is that the equivalent to alcoh holding a gun to our heads? >> yes. that's what iran does. they're the leading sponsor of terrorism in the world. they're doing the same thing again. they have played a cat and mouse game with us the last 35 years about developing nuclear weapons. we know they have detonate a nuclear trigger device. they've been going down this pathway. this is probably a postponement
of it. they're going to get a bomb eventually. >> proponents say according toe the iaea that they have complied with this deal. there were two times when they had too much heavy water on hand. they moved it to jordan. they complied and to back out now makes the u.s. look like they don't stand behind their word. what do you say to that? >> they're getting redry to go over that heavy water again. that's three times they have bypassed that. according to the agreement, they shouldn't be doing that. then you look at the other things they're doing. they're supplying weapons to syria. they're bad players and supposed to be operating on good faith. i stand with the president. i think secretary pompeo will do a good job holding iran's feet to the fire. an i ran with the potential to
build one is a nonstarter. i stand strong with the president on this. >> democrats and people in favor of the deal and leaders of other nations saying if we pull out of the deal with nothing in its place, it sends them off to the races immediately on the path to having a nuclear weapon, that we can't pull this away with something in it's place. what do you think of that argument? >> it's a perfect example why this was a terrible deal. if we walked away or if i ran decides we're not honoring our side, they can leave. there was no restrictions on them. so president trump is smart to go after sanctions on entities that he can outside of the jcpoa. we look forward to having to other countries that helped negotiate this hold on those sanctions with us. put the pressure on iran. >> what do you think should go back in its place if anything? do you think the u.s. should
work with france to try to put together a new deal or amend it? no matter how you mince the words, everybody is talking about replacing this with somebody else that is more effective. do you think that's possible and do you think it's the right move? >> yeah, i think it's possible. if you look at the sunset clause in there, after ten years, i ran can do whatever they wanted to. that should be a nonstarter. that should have never been in that negotiation. so if france or england or any of the other countries can help us get to a point where iran does not develop nuclear weapons -- we've seen the turmoil nuclear weapons have caused in this world. the arms race has had. to have another country that has had nuclear weapons, i don't think it serves anybody in the planet well. >> a lot of people look at this situation with north korea. the outcome we were moving toward was unthinkable a couple
months ago. you think it's a false sense of confidence that we can turn to this problem and solve this problem as well? maybe there's too much confidence on the american side right now. >> no, i think the way they're handling north korea is perfect. it's going step by step. it's the beginning something like people like you said never thought was possible. it's going to take a period of time. i know this presidency will not do what the other ones did as a mistake can releasing sanctions early. the sanctions need to stay on until a deal is complete. after that, we can talk about negotiations and more. >> thanks, congressman yoho. >> thank you. >> the justice department is charging nearly a dozen members of a migrant caravan of entering the country illegally among the showdown at the southern border. a live report from tijuana, mexico. fox news is counting count to the gop senate primary debate in
west virginia hours from now. so what can we expect? will republicans be able to unseat democratic senator joe manchin in november? >> west virginia is very much donald trump country. and they want the u.s. senator that will stand there and support president trump not be somebody that is supporting chuck schumer. patrick woke up with a sore back. but he's got work to do. so he took aleve this morning. if he'd taken tylenol, he'd be stopping for more pills right now. only aleve has the strength to stop tough pain for up to 12 hours with just one pill. tylenol can't do that. aleve. all day strong. all day long. the brand more doctors recommend for minor arthritis pain.

>> all eyes on west virginia now as the three top republican senate primary candidates prepare to face off in a fox news debate. the latest fox news poll shows the candidates in a tight race amid questions republicans can unseat joe manchin this november. peter doocy is live in west virginia with the latest. peter? >> melissa, the former coal
baron that recently did jail time, don blankenship isn't running against the swim, he's nicknaming people there. he has a new one for the senate majority leader. >> one of my new goals is to ditch cocaine mitch. >> that gray out of al cases that mcconnell's we have has relatives that own ships that have been used to traffic drugs. it's the latest in a personal battle between mcconnell and blankenship. mcconnell is linked to super pacts that want to stop mcconnell. these attacks, blankenship thinks, are helping him. >> it moves me up a little bit. i don't think mitch mcconnell realizes how anti him and the
establishment are. >> there's a reason there so much national attention on the race. it's one of the republicanist best opportunities to flip a democratic seat. so as conservative heavyweights weigh-in, the attorney general patrick morrisey thinks he's gains ground. >> i'm emphasizing my record. i'm the only one in the race that has the proven conservative regard and endorsements. late last week when senator cruz came on board, senator rand paul, all the major conserve tiff leader ins the state are rallying behind my candidacy. >> democrats are spending the most, hundreds of thousands to try to stop congressman evan jenkins. he believes he could stop democrats from undermining the trump administration. >> chuck schumer, nancy pelosi want to impeach president trump.
they know i can stand in their way. tim only one that can defeat joe manchin. >> all the republican candidates want to appear closest to the president. so expect to hear boasting about what they have done to help the administration tonight. melis melissa? >> quite a race. this could give us a hint about what to expect tonight. >> evan jenkins is a career liberal democrat supporting nancy pelosi, john kerry, rallying for hillary clinton. >> i'm the only one that has president trump's back. been with him from day one. has actually a proven conservative voting record, 100% pro life, 100% with the nra. >> the big issue is jobs. i'm the guy that created a lot of jobs in west virginia. neither of my candidates or opponents did, i should say. so i'm better positioned to help with jobs.
>> david devona is chairman of go pack. give me your thoughts. >> the fox news poll shows this really is a two-person race between the attorney general, patrick morrisey and congressman evan jenkins. the key to this, melissa, is the fact that republicans should gain seats in the senate this year and the path goes through west virginia. we win the seat in west virginia, republicans are going to pick up three to four seats in the u.s. senate. >> so that is the prediction that is well outside the norm. where do you see the three seats coming from and why the pickup as opposed to the conventional wisdom, which we think of, nonetheless, has been that the democrats are going to do very well in these mid-terms? >> you have incumbents in indiana, montana, here in west virginia, in missouri who are all in political cross currents.
they're voting with the democratic leadership in the senate when you have electorates in each state that supports president trump's policies, particularly as it comes to the tax cuts or the government regulations or the jobs being created, the foreign policy moves he's making. voters in every one of those states give favorable ratings for the president. the democrats are voting the opposite. >> as someone that looks at polls, what do you make of the fact that a quarter of the electorate in west virginia says they're undecided? do you believe that to be true or you think they don't want to share who they're going to vote for? it's a big number what do you make of it? >> it is a big number. that was a week out. so now you're looking at a week now later. people have made their decisions. people will make their decisions based off watching the fox debate tonight. but it's also important to look at where are the early votes coming from. if you look at where early votes are being cast, they're all in the region of the state that
patrick morrisey has traditionally in his past statewide races have done very well in. whether that is in the morgantown area where we are today, whether that is in the eastern panhandle where martinsburg is geographically. if you look at the numbers, who does patrick morrisey do particularly well with? he does well with senior citizens, he does well with those people self-identified as conservative. all of those folks are the ones that vote in republican primaries. it's not surprising whether it's the fox poll or the gopac poll from last week that this is a two-person race between morrisey and jenkins. >> is there any danger to unseating joe manchin? i understand that a senate seat is wonderful to pick up. at the same time, joe manchin has been a crossover voice, somebody that can argue the case of the republicans or the president at least in some instances and take it back to
his party? there's a value to having that person on the other side what do you think you give up by unseating him? >> you make a good reasonable point except for the fact that voters vote on voting the way they want voted. senator manchin has decided to vote against the president's tax cuts, he continues to try to do things to win favor with senator schumer and the democratic leadership and let's also keep in mind, senator manchin has come out that he's interested in looking at a single payer healthcare system. something that voters here have rejected but around the country as well. so to your point, manchin is not a good vote for west virginia if he's going to keep voting for things that west virginiians want. >> we're looking at the feeder to see this debate later
tonight. what are you looking for? >> west virginia is a state that's been hit very hard with the opioid addiction. what are the candidates answers on that. it now, as you know, west virginia is my home, i'm a native from here. in every election, it's been and job create. if you look at polling, now job creation is the number 1 issue to the opioid addiction. the candidates have to have an answer that voters believe will make a difference here in the state. >> david, those are two very topics the president hit hard early in the campaign. it worked for him. thanks for coming on. we appreciate it. we want to let all the viewers know that you can catch the action here on fox news, america's election headquarters. the debate starts at 6:30 p.m. tonight moderated by bret baier and martha maccallum followed by hard-hitting a -- analysis.

entry in the country. this is south of san diego. behind me, this is the pedestrian entrance here. this is where the immigrants likely will go probably in the next 24, to 48 hours. i can show you video earlier on about the process here. this is where the caravan is camped just outside the pedestrian gate. as you can see, we're showing you right now, there's a lot of media here. these individuals are hoping, again, that they will be selected prioritized, if you will, to get an invitation to have an asylum hearing in the u.s. so what they're going to do, have an opportunity to tell their story. looks like they're hearing information right now from the organizers and how they have to cue up for that. so they're waiting here. they could be here. they were here last night. donations of food and so forth. when we arrived at 5:00 a.m., everybody was sleeping. over on the other location here, i want to show you something interesting. everyone inside this gate,
they're from the caravan. the central americans, this group here, these are mexicans that were in line and now been pushed to the back of the line by these individuals. nevertheless, we talked to a couple from el salvador and they're hoping they're next. >> we felt bad because they didn't let them through. here we are. i believe and have faith in god that we will get across to the other side. >> so i talked to vice president mike pence about this situation. he acknowledges that they have a legal right to a hearing in the united states is when you have a credible fear claim. he's already very concerned about the catch and release law that
encourages more immigration. >> 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
