3:02 am
undercover. steve: rob schmitt has been following the story since it broke an hour ago. what's the latest? >> this happening overnight around 4:15 east coast time. 3:15 in chicago. a manhunt after atf agent is shot in the shed head on the city's south side in chicago the pack of the yards neighborhood. we just learned another officer was also shot. we have two injured atf officers. this went down after some type of undercover mission they were doing between the atf and chicago police. you can take a listen now to the dramatic scanner traffic between the officers and the aftermath of the shooting. >> i'm coming right at you. i need [bleep] right now right now. take me to the hospital. officer hit. we need escort to a hospital now. we need an ambulance as soon as possible. find someone to meet us. he may be hit in the head. rob: neighbors hearing multiple gunshots fired. that atf agent driven to the hospital. the other officer was able to walk into the hospital on his own.
3:03 am
again, this happening on the city's south side in a neighborhood that a reporter just informed us has seen a lot of gang violence as of late. and the south side of chicago, of course, as brian said, no stranger to gun violence. we're going to stay on top of this story and bring you the latest as we get it. everybody hoping this officer shot in the head will hope fromfully pull through. steve: unbelievable. brian: i would love for the president to talk with a mayor who would allow the national guard to go in there and clean that place up. because this can't go on. ainsley: rudy giuliani was at the tunnels to tower event ty have paid for the homes of families of first responders who were left behind. home depot has given them a lot of money and delta has given them a lot of money. they are unfortunately having to do this because so many police officers are getting shot in our country. brian: 6:20 they are going to come on and talk about
3:04 am
it. steve: meanwhile, let's talk about this. did you see an nbc news alert the headline online was feds tapped trump lawyer michael cohen's phones. in other words, what that says is a judge approved listening to phone calls. a wiretap. it was such a big story. it was on all the channels where they were talking about it until it was discovered that nbc got the story completely wrong. brian: yeah. in fact, it was such an explosive story no one could make sense of it. the guy who figured out this story was wrong right away was this guy rudy giuliani. he said that can't be true because this can't be happening. that's illegal to look at michael cohen before he has been indicted on anything go out and start wiretapping his phones including they say a phone call at least one phone call from the white house. so this was a ratcheting up an attack on michael cohen you would expect on al capone. ainsley: it was not wiretapping it was called a
3:05 am
pin register. they logged his phone calls. they came out with this correction nbc did. earlier today nbc news -- keep in mind four hours after the original false story was broke. three officials now dispute that saying the monitoring was limited to a log of calls, a pin register, not a wiretap of cohen's line. we will continue to report. steve: that's right. there is a big, big difference. so obviously that was very embarrassing. but then one of the reporters who worked on the story came out and said look we were citing two very reliable sources who have been very accurate in the past. in other words, don't blame nbc. that's what they are saying. ari fleischer had this to say about how it all unfold sod quickly yesterday in the effort to get trump and anybody around him. >> the whole velocity and direction of the press is to blame donald trump for everything. that's been a constant, laura. it's been since he became a
3:06 am
candidate and accelerated since he became president. they haven't explained how and why they got it wrong. they just run with it and everybody else wants to run with it, too. it reminds me still to this day cnn, msnbc and cbs never explained how they put a source on the air saying donald trump jr. had advanced notice of the weeks. they had to retract that because the person reading the memo got a date wrong and the notice was after the weeks was aired. but they never explained how they possibly could have all had multiple sources getting that story wrong. because the threshold is so low for anti-trump stories. it's hurting journalism. it's one of the reasons america is splitting into two. brian: when is the last time you saw a headline they had to retract donald trump exonerated in the mueller probe announcement about to happen. it's always on the negative. it's always pro-the investigation and against
3:07 am
the trump administration. ainsley: creating so many jobs. steve: michael, clifford's lawyer. ainsley: stormy daniels lawyer. steve: i'm not speculating. it was a fact. what he believed was investigators got information from the wiretap that mr. cohen was about to destroy evidence. and so that's why they swooped in and did the raids. of course, that was all wrong as well in the russia shah to get out bad trump news and it's not accurate. brian: rudy told the can't wiretap client. not involved in the investigation. i don't think the story going to turn out to be true. it breaks at 1:00. it took until 5:25 for there to be a clarification on chuck todd's show on nbc when michael winter says okay we have these sources but it turns out they are just monitoring. by the way as the judge will tell you when it comes to the nsa they monitor, i wonder if they can blow out
3:08 am
transcripts at any moment and hoping people aren't doing that. i hope not. ainsley: president has not tweeted about this. last thing he tweeted about was national day of prayer. this is why the whole phrase fake news came about. many people complain about his tweeting but that's his way of getting the story correct in his opinion. he can't rely on the mainstream media. brian: when we started we were talking over the last three and a half weeks about this caravan coming up from central america through mexico through our border started 1400. down to 250 and looked like just a trickle were coming in as they go for refugee status and some trying to scale the fence and tossed out. now the number is scary high in my estimates estimation. steve: yesterday 70 were committed for a total of 158 from that particular caravan. there are still 62 waiting. here's the thing, in addition to the 70 from central america, there were 45 mexicans allowed in to claim asylum. that's because this is the
3:09 am
way our laws are written. when people look i don't like catch and release and how easy it is to get asylum. if you don't like it, change the law. that's where congress has got to do something. they dragged their feet and haven't done anything for a long time. ainsley: how are they able to use asylum. mexico said they could stay there. they were safe. they were originally coming from honduras and guatemala, el salvador. get to mexico they said we could stay. when they get to our border how can they say they are not safe when they could say yes you are you got to stay in mexico. brian: lining up to the office and filling out the forms. think about how stupid you look. go over there, just walk up there, knock on the door and say everything they are supposed to say in order to get refugee status. it gets worse. illegal immigration has
3:10 am
surged 230% in april compared to april of last year. so, illegals are coming. in the catch and release still in many cases is in play. and then have you other people just come in and knock on the door and claim refugee status. we have no control who comes in and out. steve: there are people in this world who do need to leave wherever think are living, whether it's violence or for whatever reason. but it has become so easy these days to do it. and that's why the president is frustrated. he has told us on this program and that's why he would like to see congress do something. ainsley: all right. let's hand it over to jillian who has more headlines for us? >> good friday morning to you. we have a lot of news we are following. right to this fox news alert. a mask volcano erupts forcing thousands from their home. national guard working to get people to safety near the kilauea volcano. gray and dark ash billows into the could i. erupting after hundreds of earthquake shook the island
3:11 am
this week. one of the most active volcanos in the world. the nine crew members killed when military plane crashed in georgia have now been identified. the puerto rico international guardsmen have nearly 170 years of service between them. eight of them were fathers. >> our thoughts and prayers over the family members of the airmen who lost their lives yesterday. we yeef for them and with them as we try to make sense of what has occurred. jillian: unclear why the plane plunged to the ground it was on its way to be decommissioned. massive fireball explodes in the sky as a plant in louisiana goes up in flames. >> look. oh my gosh. i didn't feel it. >> i felt the heat. >> the fire starting after we have lien and flammable chemicals. it's found in things like airplane fuel, gasoline and paint. no one was hurt but several

neighbors have been evacuated. in just a few hours, president trump will take center stage at the nra convention in dallas as he speaks to those gun supporters. his administration is solidifying plans for high stakes meeting with north korean dictator kim jong un. john bolton is meeting with south korean counterpart in washington. south korea has been working closely with the u.s. to stop the north korean nuclear program. send it back to you. steve: all right. thank you very much. the big question is when will they spring those three americans? it looked like yesterday. they had moved them from a work camp to a fancy hotel. might be today. never know. all right, meanwhile, if robert mueller pulled the trigger on a subpoena, should the president just ignore it if he is subpoenaed? our next guest is a former u.s. attorney and he says yes, ignore it. ainsley: high ratings conservative comedy last man standing was canned by abc. but now the network might be having a change of heart.

3:16 am
brian: let's get this started. special counsel robert mueller's threat to subpoena president trump in the investigation according to giuliani sets up potentially
3:17 am
historic clash. can the special counsel subpoena president trump or any president? here to weigh in is former assistant attorney for the southern district of new york andy mccarthy. andrew, let me ask this question, does vet power to subpoena the president and execute it? >> he certainly has the power. whether the president actually has to testify is another matter. the president, if it gets to that point, the president has executive privilege and i assume he would assert it and it would become a question of could mueller show what needs to be shown before he could coerce the president into testifying. brian: who does he show it to? >> well, in the first instance, i don't think this is something that ought to be going on between a prosecutor and counsel to the president. normally, this is where justice department leadership jumps in to sort of police these things. for example, there are certain things that the law says that you can get from a journalist in the way of information or from a defense lawyer.
3:18 am
but, as a prosecutor, you can't just willy-nilly issue a subpoena to a journalist or a defense lawyer. you have to satisfy the justice department that there is a serious crime and that there is evidence that you can only get from those sources. and ivan then, it's a reach whether they will actually give you authority to do it or not. here, i think you are dealing with the president whose job, in terms of governance of the country, in terms of national security is obviously much more consequential. brian: yeah. >> they should not, at the justice department beings, allow mueller to even request an interview unless they can show there is a serious crime, that president trump is somehow complicit in it, and that president trump has information is that true special counsel can't get from any other source. if they can't show those things, the justice department should not allow mueller even to request an interview. brian: so rod rosenstein. is he in charge of it. you are saying if is he
3:19 am
executing his authority, that's where this stops. but we understand from the one-on-one session that they want the president not only to not answer in writing. they want to answer face to face and they want him under oath. >> well, that's what you would want if you were the prosecutor. that's only natural. if had you a witness in the case. who is a subject of the investigation or a witness in the investigation. i think they told him he is not a target. you would want that you would want an arrangement where you would be under oath. but, because he's the president, they shouldn't be allowed to get it unless they can shake that high showing. brian: real quick, did rudy giuliani help or hurt yesterday. >> i think it really hurts to make a big issue out of what, at most is, a campaign finance violation. the obama campaign in 2008 committed a campaign finance violation that was about 20 times bigger than the amount of money we are talking about here. and they got to settle that with a fine to the fec. i would just try to keep
3:20 am
that quiet and try to settle it and not fight it i think you fight mueller but you don't fight this. brian: right. we will see where it goes. because mueller is not backing down. the president has a very aggressive legal team and andrew mccarthy says they have a lot to stand on when it comes to repelling the subpoena request, if it comes to that andrew mccarthy, thanks so much. >> thanks, brian. brian: all right. straight ahead. tunnel to towers holds annual gala and ainsley earhardt, who i have met before, was the event's host. heroes making the ultimate sacrifice killed in the line of duty. next frank stiller and wife of a soldier whose life has been changed by tunnels to towers. before nexium 24hr mark could only imagine... a peaceful night sleep without frequent heartburn waking him up. now that dream is a reality. nexium 24hr stops acid before it starts for all-day,

3:27 am
spouse of any soldier doesn't want to get. but that very door is paid for now because of this great organization in your home. >> yes. ainsley: what did that mean to you? >> it meant the world. to try and make sure that my kids keep, you know, they are comfortable and we don't have to work multiple jobs and raising them. it's just an amazing thing that we get to stay in our home where we had our memories. steve: when you found out your husband had died, thinking about the mortgage was the last thing. >> last thing. last thing. steve: at the same time, you are like okay, now what's going to happen on the next payday? >> yeah. and, you know, frank came out and they told me what he wanted to do, and i just -- i'm forever grateful. and it's just amazing what they do and, you know, everything else that they do with building the smart homes. it's just, you know, amazing. steve: it's overwhelming. >> it's very overwhelming and i'm very thankful. i know my kids will be very

thankful when they can understand stuff like that. ainsley: there wasn't a dry eye in the room last night. mental and women were crying because you played this amazing video. it's an important video because we all need to be reminded of why we live in this great country. how amazing our servicemen and women are. our first responders. and they played. there was live music. performers saying last call. he wrote the song he actually is a veteran. a navy veteran. he is up on stage singing this and then in the background on all the screens you can hear the last calls of -- explain what happened. tell us about this video. >> well, we wanted to honor our first responders. we, you know, we do for all those in the military, but we also, you know, how many times have i been on this show raising money for a cop shot. brian: right away. >> right away. harrisburg, pennsylvania, ohio, and all over the united states. and, you know, people don't realize the sacrifice that's being made out there so we put it on the screen. we capture it.

crying. you heard a lot of stuff going on. but you know what? this is what is going on in america. we have to remind them that we have to take care of the families left behind. brian: last night raised over $4 million. how was ainsley? is she as good as reported? >> she was unbelievable. and she is so -- the way you could feel the carrying and love. ainsley: so grateful for your sacrifice and as a mother to a mother. i can't imagine what you are going through. but i do just -- i'm so proud of this organization. your brother lost his life. but look at the good that has come out of that. the whole room was packed. home depot has been so involved. delta so involved. who were some other? i want to support these companies? >> mohawk always helps. ainsley: they do all the flooring for all the houses. >> carpet one install the flooring. master brands install the kitchen cabinets. these are the smart homes we give to our country's

to change our weak and ineffective immigration laws. must build a wall. mexico which has a massive crime problem is doing little to help. you know, so many people have talked about well, you know, the president is trying to deport the criminal illegals, but what -- when he does, and when they are deported, in many cases those are the people who are trying to, you know, come back across the border. >> yes. i have been following this very closely in the open source information and intelligence community. i still follow this and consult with the government as well as with private sector on this threat. there are a number of criminals that are returning after having been deported. they were located in the united states after serving time in federal prisons for violent crimes. deport wanted and now they're coming back. coming back in droves. steve: ronald, one of the reasons they are doing it is because our immigration laws have been a joke in the past between, you know, how easy
3:49 am
it is for some to get asylum and then you cross the border and then they have the catch and release, the border patrol agents are told to do that from d.c. why not try? >> absolutely. ironically, it's the federal government that is funding the criminal organizations that are guaranteeing delivery to the united states. the benefits, including cash moneys that those that are coming under the current release program get cash moneys in other social welfare support and they use that to pay the smugglers that brought them to the border. steve: the last point is, ronald, just the fact that given there are so many gang members who are trying to just, you know, meld in with the women and children trying to come into the country. every time one of our border patrol agents apprehends one of those guys, you just never know. they are putting their lives
3:50 am
on the lines. >> yes, every border patrol agent suits up as they say to go in to the field and work wondering if they are going to come back to their families at the end of their shifts. it's dangerous work. at least one in ten of the entrants historically had criminal records. when you a add those that are fugitives from their own countries and villages especially pedophiles being driven out of their countries but finding sanctuary here in the united states, you are talking one in five violent criminals that will take on a border patrolled, kill or seriously injured. can't be reinforced more than the mention of the atf agent fighting for his life today another federal aghtd. steve: indeed in chicago. >> our hearts certainly are with him and his family as president of a foundation that supports families of fallen federal agents. i truly feel their pain and we wish we can do anything we can. steve: right. you know what, ronald, we are out of time.
3:51 am
i'm sorry we promise to book you back real soon. right? ronald coalburn. >> i would love to come back and talk about wall. steve: indeed. take time out from bank robber to shaking hands with the president. their story next. you totanobody's hurt, new car. but there will still be pain. it comes when your insurance company says they'll only pay three-quarters of what it takes to replace it. what are you supposed to do? drive three-quarters of a car? now if you had liberty mutual new car replacement™, you'd get your whole car back.

3:55 am
good morning. ainsley: what was that like yesterday meeting the president. >> oh my goodness, what an amazing experience to have the president of the united states to acknowledge the call of god on my life and also validate the tremendous work gods is doing through our ministry. ainsley: you are member perfect person to talk about god's redemptive qualities how amazing he is, how he forgives us. have you been through it you robbed banks, you wound up in prison, and you found god there what led you to christ? >> you know what? i remember one time i was in a prison cell in solitary confinement. and i had a little transitional radio. in that transitional radio i heard a billy graham sermon. i woke up in the middle of the night and he was sharing the story of the prodigal son. at the end of that message he made the call to surrender your life to the lord and i invited jesus to come into my life. and my life went in
3:56 am
180-degree turn. ainsley: you are founder and ceo of hope for prisoners, what's that about. >> we provide reentry services men, women and adults the judicial system. we provide the supportive services not only help them get acclimated back into the workplace but make sure there are mechanisms in place to make sure they can thrive and agree and afforded opportunities to succeed and address needs to get acclimated back in their family mismark of reentry forever. no one has ever given the particular close attention to the men and women that need to go back home to wives and husbands and particularly to their children. so we make sure that the mechanism is in place to help with that family reunification piece. then on the back end of the process because it's a long-term 18-month journey where we walk with folks wanting to do everything we possibly can to ensure they are being successful. ainsley: john, thank you so much for what you are doing
3:57 am

4:02 am
attorney's phone calls, that is a story that should melt a switch board. ainsley: we heard that story, we could not believe it really, they are listening to his phone calls? have we come to that point as a country? it turns out they had to make some corrections. that story was fake news. brian: do you know who picked it up? rudy giuliani. four and a half hours we thought was fact because they said they had two reliable sources. he said we think it's going to turn out to be untrue. it's totally illegal. you can't wiretap a lawyer and can't wiretap his client especially when he is president of the united states. guess what happens around 5:30 on msnbc. chuck todd has word he has to change his format. here is tom winter the guy who broke the story, correcting the story. >> we have a correction via nbc earlier today nbc news reported there was a wiretap on the phones of michael cohen. we have a correction to that now. it's not a wiretap where they are listening in to the phone calls, explain what we
4:03 am
reported and what we now know. >> we reported that there was a wiretap on michael cohen's phone, meaning that they were able to listen in to conversations from phone lines associated with michael cohen. now three senior u.s. officials are telling us that this is a -- it was not a wiretap. instead it is what is referred to as a pin register. in plain english it means a log of phone calls that were made. steve: so the big question is who were those two sources that nbc had? did they really believe they had the inspection or were they flat out wrong or trying to stir the pot? whatever. nonetheless, nbc, you know, pretty yes, ma'am bare wassed they don't have a little egg on their face they have a whole omelet. ainsley: those sources probably just heard they are logging his phone calls. they probably thought that means wiretapping and didn't really know the definition. brian: i want to look back all the times they got the story wrong and helped the president if you don't mind. they never have gotten a story wrong to help the president.
4:04 am
it's always negative and they have to walk it back but no one -- the damage has already been done. so i just find the whole thing astounding that it changed. by the time i hopped on the train it was one story. got off the train a totally different story and we just moved on. steve: well, because there seems to be such an appetite for new stuff about how the salacious angles to the trump presidency, as soon as somebody had something, they run with it sometimes it turns out not true. we have seen that a number of times and yesterday was the day for ntsb. brian: yesterday we were also talking to rudy giuliani, who is now heading up the president's legal team as you know and has not done much up until two days ago. and the whole scenario plays out like this. the president, they want to sit down and talk to the president, the mueller group. and rudy giuliani goes yeah, maybe for two hours there is a 50-50 chance i will do it. not do fund oath and just do some questions. they are going back and for the. they say if you decide not to sit down i'm going to subpoena you, this is robert mueller coming.
4:05 am
andrew mccarthy is a former assistant u.s. attorney for the southern district of new york. he says this probe does not have the ability to subpoena the president. >> you are dealing with the president whose job, in terms of governance of the country, in terms of national security, is obviously much more consequential. and they should not, at the justice department, allow mueller to even request an interview unless they can show that there is a serious crime, that president trump is somehow complicit in it, and that president trump has information that the special counsel can't get from any other source. if they can't show those things, the justifiable department should not allow mueller even to request an interview. brian: 1-800-rod rosenstein, step up and do something. that's what andy mccarthy is saying. steve: the president has special protections under article 2 of the u.s. constitution. it's called the presidential privilege against
4:06 am
prosecution is what it is known as. the sitting president of the united states cannot be indicted. he has to be impeached first. and then he can be indicted. so you can't do what is being suggested. i mean, there are legal minds arguing both sides, but it does appear the president, if a subpoena were served, it would wind up in court and ultimately, somebody would say, you know what? you can't do that with a sitting president. ainsley: let's talk about something. brian: go ahead. one of the few things thomas jefferson and john adams agreed on when it comes to the presidency and protecting it. it looks like rod rosenstein might be sitting on his hands again. shoppinger. ainsley: we know what kanye has said about the president. he loves president trump. they have been friends for a while. now there is talk that he is going to be going to the white house to talk about healing the racial divisions in america. and there is the famous pastor out of cleveland, pastor darrell scott who has been one of the president's most prominent black allies. he confirmed. this was watching tmz and he
4:07 am
was on tmz in the airport and he said yes, kanye west has been invited to the white house to talk about this issue. and we have also invited kaepernick. steve: the president wants to host a summit on race to try to heal racial divisions in this country. the president would invite artists and athletes as well. this all came down, the comments that we heard were yesterday during the national day of prayer when darrell scott said the president is 100 percent behind this idea. brian: you know, kanye west probably could have put it more artfully. trying to say over the last few days even if you don't aagree with the president, at least don't let people tell law to think and put you into boxes to say if you are white you vote this way. if you are hispanic you supposed to vote this way. you are spoifsed to think this way. open up your mind. let people earn your vote. understand what's holding you back. i think an open forum is the best way to go because it
4:08 am
isn't about kanye west. it's about what he is trying to get across is let people earn your vote and, you know what? take responsibility for your life. i think this is an awesome idea. i would hope it would be televised and i hope not everybody in there agrees with kanye west with or darrell scott. all sides can air it out in intellectual way and move the ball forward. right now all we do is sit in our corners and wait for the next election day to reverse to your way of thinking is not working. ainsley: ben shapiro hosts the ben shapiro show and he had this to say to kanye on the importance of speaking out. listen. >> what kanye did by saying think for yourself, if that's such a threat to the left it demonstrates how the left has to use identity politics to shut down any real debate. i don't think kanye west ought to be head of the heart damage foundation.
4:09 am
what he did say here which is simple. i'm not just a black guy and i'm not just a hollywood celebrity i'm an individual with thoughts and feelings and get to formulate my own logic and figure out what i believe. if everyone else thought like this perhaps we should be able to have these conversations we haven't been able to have so far. >> good for kanye west for beginning the conversation. steve: apparently the president's idea is he wants these artists and athletes and to vent to him. brian: before the president ran has professionals looking a what kind of candidate would he be? the greatest asset is the ratings he got and various things he has done with minority communities. and apprentice rated off the charts in hispanic and for instance and he thought wow, can you imagine a republican running who has a shot at those communities? and now because if maybe some things with charlottesville and beyond some things he has done and just by being a republican he has been shot off from that fundamentally people like what made donald trump
4:10 am
donald trump on all walks of life and maybe he can tap back into that. steve: i think this is an effort to try to you changes that particular narrative. meanwhile after the riots we saw at berkeley. berkeley commissioned a study to figure out what went wrong. you know, keep in mind, conservative speakers invited on and then there was violence that broke out. berkeley has come up with figuring out what the problem was. the problem was so, so simple. they blamed the violence on the conservative speakers because they were trying to incite the far left to violence and make the university look bad. brian: listen to this quote. some of the events can be seen to be part of a coordinated campaign to organize appearances on american campuses like there to advance universal narrative not tolerant of university speech. commitment to anything other than the pursuit of wealth and fame through the incity gafings anger, fear and vengefulness in hard right

4:18 am
fox news contributor. making him eligible for our christmas party as of today. daniel, congratulations. thanks. we think aboard. >> thank you. brian: why do you think the profile of mike pompeo is perfect for this mission? >> you know, before i retired from cia last year i had the privilege of meeting mike pompeo. i can tell you it was a fantastic decision by the president to send mike on that exceptionally important and challenging mission to north korea back over easter weekend when he held that meeting -- presume mitt meeting with kim jong un. mike pompeo understands intelligence by virtue of his time in the congress and service as director of the cia. intelligence is a key component to navigating what are going to be extremely challenging diplomatic negotiations. we have years of failed policy on north korea. now we are looking at trying to solve this. but, intelligence is going to be critical to doing it right. mike pompeo has got that background that's so important. steve: daniel, we don't know what went on behind the
4:19 am
scenes. but north korea has done a lot since mike pompeo left north korea. >> they absolutely have. and they reportedly have moved the three americans who were in labor camps to a hotel in anticipation of releasing them before the summit between president trump and kim jong un. i would also highlight, mike pompeo is really the president's conciliary and he is the one who met kim jong un. he is the one that is going to be able to write a leadership profile so the president can step out smartly and understand what makes kim jong un tick. brian: state department never had so much power in this white house has it has now. gina has kill on tuesday will begin confirmation process. some say it will be uphill battle if any in enhanced interrogation. what would mean to the agency to have someone who has spent so many years in the agency lead? >> let me highlight a couple things. i served with gina a couple of years. and think highly of her.
4:20 am
if there is one thing that intelligence officers from across the political spectrum agree from john brennan to mike hayden it's that gina has kill should be the next director. i just believe she is a tremendous professional. she served in the agency for over 30 years. she understands the art of intelligence. she has done the hard work on the hardest of targets. russia has demonstrated outstanding leadership and led the fight on counter terrorism. she is ready to, i think, address the past issues of enhanced interrogation techniques. absolutely has no intention of restarting the program but has learned the lessons. steve: all right. let's see what happens. daniel hoffman brand new fox news contributor. thank you and welcome to the family. >> thank you very much. brian: straight ahead. steve: 7:20 in new york city. is the online giant amazon targeting religious freedom groups. the evidence and the woman who is fighting back coming up next. brian: he almost got away from police until there someone tripped him up,

they are on the verge of verifiable irreversible denuclearization of north korea potentially. big news. steve: it is big news. you know, reporters, every reporter from time to time gets something wrong. i get that ntsb said they had two sources and apparently. >> anonymous sources. steve: right. >> exactly. >> their favorite. steve: and they were wrong. rush to judgment. their hair is on fire if they have new news about donald trump that makes him look bad. >> they also don't realize how easily baited. someone will put something on twitter and then they presume what it is supposed to say and what it doesn't. have you got to work hard on that, folks, respectfully. you are here to report and not react. i do think in some ways the president has made many people a little soft and sometimes a little bit left active than perhaps they should be in trying to get the story.
4:35 am
they're not here to get the president. they are here to get the story. as the president and our press secretary make very clear is he among the most available transparent presidents people say oh he doesn't have a formal press conference. this is someone who speaks out on the south lawn who answers questions each when they are off topic during bilateral appearances with the heads of other countries. the foreign press is often asking a question that actually relates to the relationship between the two countries. our president is usually question that doesn't and the president answers them anyway. the president is on twitter daily. he sent out three tweets in a row yesterday. i think clarifying and expanding on the conversation through the first person here, the president who would know what was happening, but you have to go beyond twitter. you have to go beyond social media when you are covering this president and really try to report the story. the rush to judgment, the presumptive negativity has really been -- it's been a
4:36 am
staple of the way this president has been covered since day one. this isn't about bias. this isn't about incomplete coverage things people care about. look at the national day of prayer in the rose garden yesterday. thank you for having the gentleman on who reformed his life and found christ and was exalted by the president yesterday along with the agent who had arrested him originally. that is a story of redemption and mercy and somebody who overcomes. that is the american spirit. this president loves to highlight stories like that in the rose garden and elsewise. you had sixth faith leaders representing very different faiths yesterday offering prayer. you had much of the cabinet there, the vice president. very little coverage of it i would commend americans to cut out the middle manual when they want. go pull up the clip and treat yourself to 30 minutes of the national day of prayer yesterday. really see the beauty of your country in action. brian: we only have four and a half hours of stories that they said michael cohen had his lines wiretapped. that was walked back 5:30 on
4:37 am
msnbc. >> people do make mistakes. at the trump white house our mistakes live forever, right? i think those, just like -- that's the problem here, isn't it in the media protect each other oh, well they corrected it. they said they were sore. >> excuse me even after saturday night i told people those are seeking mercy and instant absolution ought to demonstrate the capacity to offer some over the last 16 months. brian: it's not axios. it's playbook that tells you, kellyanne, you now have an expanded role temporarily taking a more active role in communications strategy at the white house. would you say that's true? >> what i would say is i'm very happy to help in that regard. and i want to say something about the communications job here. there are and the press job. there are dozens of men and women who work incredibly hard who are not household names. who aren't part of the public of this duration. they are here every day working hard to advance the
4:38 am
president's agenda. the shear volume and velocity of issues that this president puts forward, he is a man of action in a town of talk. and wants to keep pushing forward. look what he has doing domestic agenda? this is important. this is 2018. the way you can communicate with the public through different social media platforms, through different tunts is so much more diverse and plentiful than it's been for any past president. also, president donald trump is very unique and unconventional in that he prefers the itemization of information. he prefers to go directly to the people. tweet out, use instagram and facebook and different social media platforms to connect directly. 2018 with the social media savvy president and ways to communicate we don't need the convention that the structure that the other white houses have had. our digital team and social media team, he is like a

>> with all due respect you don't know much about me in terms of what i feel and what i don't. >> what it shows me is that she was feeling that she was in a vice of sorts. she'll went straight to me to say something like, you know, you don't know me. in certain sectors of this nation, people understand what you don't know me means. it is very street. and it leads to a fight. a physical fight. so i'm not there to fight. i'm there to ask questions. ainsley: in a vice of sorts. and if it says you don't knee me that means you are going to get in a street fight? >> april approached me at a post white house correspondents dinner event i won't disclose that conversation because i think she meant it to be private. i will tell you that we try to engage with each other as, you know, women to women, people to people, everybody knows that there is a person behind the positions here on counsel to the president during the
4:41 am
white house press corps. people like to have conversations with your family and hobbies. april is one of many people who approach me after that dinner on saturday night and not pleased with what had happened at that dinner. i'm going to leave it at that. the reason i mention that at all is, i prefer when these conversations are about information and not confrontation. i have to ping for my colleague sarah sanders there. folks, you don't know us. that's not anything other than a pedestrian term you don't know us and everyone should think about the difference of going viral and starting an argument and trying to get information. your job is to get information not confrontation. brian: right. >> i will tell you, a lot of this has nothing to do with april ryan. i'm making a more general statement. a lot who dish it out can't take its that watt point in my sunday show a couple weeks ago. be careful if you would be very thin-scinsd on the receiving end and the kind

>> democrats r. democrats feel like they have this blue wave. but it's the left of the left in some of these house and senate races in these primaries that are pulling the party further, further left into the elizabeth warren camp rather than trying to appeal to middle america. ainsley: it isn't just new hampshire. does it surprise that you biden is number two on this poll? >> i think it's name id early on. joe biden has indicated that maybe he regrets not getting in last time and letting hillary clinton kind of, you know, clear the field, if you will, other than bernie sanders. and so you have got some
4:49 am
leftovers there. and it's unclear whether biden will run or not. again, this is something that when you talk early on about president trump is in so much troubling. wait a second. the democrats can't get their act together number one, and number two, when poll after poll shows the issue people care about more than anything is the economy, that's one the president's -- steve: what about the fact that apparently in that new book about hillary clinton's campaign bill clinton essentially told the dnc keep the bernie people out of it and the democratic politics which makes sense because is he not a democrat. >> jonathan allen co-author of a couple best sellers on clinton things. saying that bill clinton is still doing that basically, trying to tell party officials keep the bernie people out. as you can see from that poll in new hampshire i forgot to mention, bernie pretty strong in there as well. obviously he is from vermont. that helps him in new hampshire. bernie sanders is not going away is the point. and the clintons don't appear to have learned anything from 2016 which is kind of rigging the primary against bernie sanders. these people are not going anywhere.
4:50 am
he is not going anywhere. let the process play out. brian: right. i actually agree with bill clinton on this. unless he is going to register in the democratic party, shouldn't put him in a democratic primary because he gets all the benefits of the operation. >> they let him in last time let him into the debates even though he was not a democrat. it feels like that horse has left the barn. steve: he keeps pulling the party further t left. ainsley: he is too far to the left, right? >> in a general election. people argues just as donald trump has this strong base that's with him no matter what that bernie sanders has a strong base on the left no matter what. you would have a real clash in the general election. you heard the president back in 2016 saying i would love to face bernie. brian: are you going to bring your base to "fox & friends" this weekend. steve: eight hours. ed: you have it easy. three hours. four hours a day. and ainsley and i shared the duties last night at the tunnels to tower organization. great charity. she had to get her beauty sleep so i took the second

5:05 am
say they corrected it and move on. steve: it was so salacious because the suggestion, there was one call supposedly from a white house number. the suggestion was, can you imagine if the president is on the phone talking to michael cohen about stormy daniels? >> you know i would submit if they had that, it would be inadmissible. anything that came, result of that, the fruit of the poison tree would similarly be inadmissible. that is why i was perplexed. unless they got a warrant. even if they had a warrant the warrant would have to specify a time where the lawyer-client relationship is criminal. that is really high bar. brian: cnbc is running with this story that the robert mueller probe is focusing on roger stone and his relationship with rick gates. >> to me that relieves pressure on the president, roger stone, all due respect, flamboyantfy, known him for years, he has never been close to the boss to

the extent he was taking orders from the 45th president to do some official duty for him or, i never known roger stone to really cary heavy weight with donald trump as long as i've known him this would indicate to me roger stone and gates were concocting something of interest to the special prosecutor. but it is not, it is not about the president. it is about roger stone and richard gates seems to me. steve: you also were busy on twitter yesterday, in addition to talking about your mother, how there is is a double standard. there is the talk about stormy daniels, when 2008 obama campaign was fined 375,000 for essentially the same thing. >> say that number again. the fine was $375,000. in this, in the president's case, the whole payout is 130,000. 1/3 as much as obama paid as a
5:07 am
fine for failing to list donors in the 2008 campaign. they didn't get him to pay it until 2013, five years later. he paid the $375,000. here the president made a payoff, $130. not only insignificant compared to the fine that president obama paid, $130,000 in the context of a election that cost $2.5 billion, 1/10 of 1%? you have to recognize, when i hear trump haters say the number, $130,000, like it is, like you raided the vaults in fort knox. steve: al capone. >> al capone. would i have taken 130,000. 1/3 as much as the fine president obama paid in it 2013100th of spent on total federal election. i'm submitting, if that what is it is, if it comes out to
5:08 am
federal election -- why are you smiling. brian: cracks me up. steve: al capone. >> if comes out to be $130,000, if the appropriate penalty imposed any other $130,000 hush-money should have been declared as a contribution in kind or campaign donation for the president, i would say it is relatively insignificant, slap my wrist. tell you what, i give you the 375,000 that obama gave when he failed to list his donors in 2008. treat 44 and 45 the same. brian: you don't think rudy did anything that bad. the president is happy with it. were you happy when rudy giuliani brought that up? >> i was watching sean's show. held my breath. i didn't know where it was going. i didn't know how it turned out, came around to saying what happened, i don't know when the president actually found out about stormy daniels. i find it very difficult to believe he found out 10 days
5:09 am
ago. let's take sarah huckabee sanders at her word and rudy giuliani at his word, he only found out how he was paying back michael cohen, who was getting paid back in the form of his legal retainer, with extra to pay back michael for the money he lent for the stormy daniels settlement, i still believe that is relatively insignificant election finance violation, not criminal. and i think, if that is all it is, with no real evidence of collusion, other than what you have here with roger stone and rick gates, all these other minor characters -- brian: paid out of private funds. >> paid out of his own money. you are allowed to pay anything you want to in your own election campaign. you don't have to declare it. you want to spend money on stuff, you can fly -- remember he was flying his airplane. ainsley: why did michael cohen say the president didn't reimburse me and he did. >> he lied. ainsley: michael cohen. steve: wide-ranging interview.

happening around the world especially with the legal cases. of course have a chance to promote his show. it is called, "life, liberty, and levin," a runaway hit on sundays at 10:00. we had the blockbuster story about rudy giuliani and what he has done since he came on the couch yesterday. i asked him about rudy's role as well as the mueller probe, are they overstepping. here's the interview. >> look the fact of the matter is, this is not a campaign contribution. it is not an in-kind campaign contribution. former chair of the federal elections commission wrote beautifully about it in the "wall street journal," that it is not even possible it is in-kind. there is no illegality bit. i wish rudy, some extent watch loose lips t creates a bit of a pr problem explaining for first time casually on television, see the reaction of the rabid media out there. but generally i think he does a very, very good job. brian: do you like the new
5:24 am
approach, aggressive approach? good-bye ty cobb, good-bye john dowd, let's get after it. do you like this approach? >> do i like it? i've been calling for a year. they need to go on the offense of the let me be clear the constitution is on the president's side. embrace it! kiss it! use it! run with it! take the information from the department of justice. litigate it. you don't even have to hurry. take your time. get it to the supreme court. show the supreme court the kinds questions mueller wants to ask. not about any specific crime. not about the purpose of its investigation. not about the any actual obstruction. what was your intent in firing mr. comey? what did you think when i was hired? this is so out of line and off the race. let the chips fall where they may. you hear these second-tier, back bencher lawyers on tv, he can claim the fifth. the fifth has nothing to do with any of it. well other presidents were subpoenaed. no president has subpoenaed and
5:25 am
dragged before a grand jury. in the case of clinton he cut the deal before that occurred. this specific issue never has been litigated. issues kind of around it have, the president has a very strong shot. i like the fact he brought in a new lawyer, very effective, understands the big picture. even more he needs to protect not only himself but the office of the presidency and separation of powers, or no future president is going to be able to escape this. the system will have been changed forever. steve: he is so smart about these things. keep in mind he was chief of staff for ronald reagan's attorney general ed meese. so he understands how the department of justice works in and out. brian: right. watch him at 10:00. he will have dan bongino, will be one of the gets on the show, as well as joe degenova. news keeps breaking. you will be on his radio show talking about this, your book.

5:30 am
steve: fox news alert. we're waiting for those brand new job numbers to come in. they were releed 16 seconds ago. we'll get them in the newsroom. another big issue for americans is wage growth. good news it is on the rise, but is it rising enough? here to break it down fox business network's gerri willis. employment number. >> should get it on my telephony time now respecting that. brian: we have to get you a staff. steve: 3.9. >> 3.9. ticks down lower than expected. expectation 4.0% after last
5:31 am
month's 4.1%. that is a surprise. markets like that. 3.9%. unless they start thinking people will get paid more and inflation will go up that could be a concern. but for workers 3.9%, full employment. it is good news. >> americans receiving unemployment aid lowest since 1973? >> this is good news again. fewer people claiming unemployment. fewer people unemployed. more people in the workforce. >> jobs number is 164,000. that is in the range? >> in the range and on the low end. frankly kind of surprising to me i'm hearing anecdotally people. we were expecting 192,000 or 170,000. keep in mind this is huge economy. these numbers are diminimus compared to the entire size of the labor force. brian: here is the other thing. i don't know if we have this number, how many people are capable of working and not? >> there is whole lot of that. participation rate has been strengthening, but still 60%.
5:32 am
so more people could be in the workforce. i have to tell you what i'm hearing from people who pet hunt, they are starting to create programs to train people for these jobs because they're desperate to pull more people into the workforce. there is so much demand for workers. the point i want to make, really, time that wages rose for workers. we've seen punk earnings gains for workers, 2.7% year-over-year. that is not great. i know it may sound like a lot. brian: whose decision is that? that is ceo's decision. that is a president's decision, not the united states. >> it is strange, jobs market getting tighter and tighter, wages have not gone up more than they have. ainsley: do you think the minimum wages should go up? >> all wages across the board, especially hourly earnings. i'm not sure if we to the those numbers in or not. that is the number i wanted to focus on of the that is critical. americans want to see wages go up. they were slow through the recovery to rebound, right? we saw that over and over again
5:33 am
in every report. they have only slowly ticked higher. people are dealing with inflation on the ground. auto numbers about, prices for cars and trucks going through the roof. anecdotally everywhere you go, if you get a haircut, ainsley, that is more expensive, right? brian: gas is going up too on top of that. >> gas is going up. they're seeing this, feeling it in the wallet. they want higher wages. steve: labor participation rate 62.8%. i don't know whether that is up or down from last time. you have to keep in mind the number of people who are no longer or working for one reason or another, a lot of people are retired. it is like, you know what any worked for the man long enough. i will sit on the beach. >> you know the good news, if you're one of the baby boomers who failed to save enough? you can work for money. they are desperate for experienced workers and employees, they can stay in the labor force. brian: if you're 80 and restless here is the opportunity. >> you will be 90 and restless.
5:34 am
brian: believe me. my wife fears the day i say i retired which will never happen. i will say this, gerri, the thing is, the market forces should be raising wages. someone hit you with the theory why the market forces are not raising wages? it doesn't make sense. >> doesn't make sense. one of the theories out there, is that prices in the economy have been kept low as well, mostly by technology. if you're buying things on amazon, you're buying it from china, right? cheaper than if you bought american-made good. that helps workers. one of the things about the discussion over tariffs and trade, right, is that it could raise consumer prices. steve: there was great article, i want to say in the "wall street journal" couple days ago, it talked about big tech. there is disparity in the big tech companies. google and facebook, i think the mean, average paycheck is about a quarter of a million dollars per year, per employee. you go over to amazon, it is close to 28,000 because those are the people picking stuff off of shelf.
5:35 am
>> they're working in the warehouse, right? interestingly, look at city by city breakout, month to month, wages per hour, san francisco highest, 3.7%. the lowest? chicago up 0.7%. that is the lowest big city earnings gain it is also up, not down. so i think there is pressure percolating throughout that. i hear anecdotally, people at chefs at restaurants. i have the money to start a new restaurant, i have the location to pick out, i don't have the people. ainsley: where are the jobs and openings? what industry? >> across the board, transportation logistics, truck drivers in high, high demand. their hourly earnings are going up 4.5%. brian: there you go. >> see lots of jobs out there. you have to look for them. ainsley: tough one, you're away from your family. still a good job, making money. brian: right, you know what? jillian can't really drive a truck, can you? jillian: probably mess talk war
5:36 am
toss ever. steve: gerri willis, thanks so much. >> i can drive a truck forked report. jillian: my dad has a pickup truck. i can drive that. brian: i'm talking about this. jillian: we have to get to important news. let's talk about the fox news alert. exclusive interview former terror recruiter send as warning to the arrest. people are more likely to follow isis deadly ideas because of sense of discrimination and injustice. he is working towards deradicalizing terrorists after years in prison. >> translator: simple act of building relations with other people opened my mind. the assistance of my jewish neighbors when i got out of jail. jillian: he recruited terrorists behind the "charlie hebdo" newspaper attack in 2015. kanye west might be heading to the west wing. president trump planning to host
5:37 am
a white house summit on race and inviting artists and the rapper could be one of them. according to cleveland pastor darrell scott, one of the president's most prominent allies. hopes kanye shows up to the summit. he has been a vocal supporter for the president. so far a date has not been sent. wild courthouse escape, watch the guy run out of the room in handcuffs, flip over a second floor railing, taking a nosedive to the ground, breaking several bones by the way. he was appearing before a judge in utah after skipping out on rehab. might want to rethink that one next time. jillian: here is thing you don't see every day. taunting drivers, you never get to work on time. someone snapping a picture in prince george county maryland. he was probably hacked by pranksters. steve: somebody at department of transportation -- ainsley: people couldn't get to

work on time. steve: might have done it on the last day. ainsley: maybe. brian: can we put rob on the story? get to the bottom of it. jillian: pretty sure on the golf course by now. see steve, thank you, jillian. have a good weekend. president trump's tough talk seems to have major impact on foreign policy, why does the left keep whining about that. steve hilton has an idea. he is next. ainsley: janice is live from the kentucky derby. hey, janice. janice: you do not want to miss this next segment because one of the co-owners of justify and two other horses racing in today's derby is coming up. i think your horse will win. >> i hope so. janice: he is with us, live at theal derby whee!

deal. steve: we never had a president that talks like that ever, but the left continues to blast trump's tough rhetoric. will they ever admit it seems to be working. brian: i want to ask that to steve hilton much. the host of "the next revolution." he joins us. steve, let me ask you the question, will people start respecting the president's approach? >> what do you think, brian? look, there is a very simple thing going on here, which is that good news for america is bad news for president trump's critics in the media, in the political establishment. they don't want trump to succeed. they actually want president trump to fail, so that they can turn around and say we told you so. we told you it would be a disaster if you put this guy in the white house. but right now, based on what is going on with north korea, with china, with syria, also remember with the economy and jobs and incomes it is president trump's supporters who are the ones who get to say i told you so. steve: sure.
5:44 am
you look at some of the tough rhetoric, we played a montage, with fire and fury and "rocket man," critics say look he will get us into a war, tank the economy. fast forward, actually with this kind of unusual, for a president negotiations, he is getting to the people at the table. look at north korea. we're on the verge of something, it looks like really good regarding those three americans? >> you're exactly right and also china's really important. i mean brian mentioned as an aside just earlier no alleged about their property theft they have been doing that for year after year after year and all of president trump's critics in the establishment, foreign policy experts, they are the people who stood by while all these disasters have been unfolding, whether the situation got worse in north korea, where china's behavior has got worse. when they lecture president trump, you're not diplomatic enough, you're not going about it the right way, the way they went about it caused problems. president trump's fresh approach seems to be starting to solve
5:45 am
them. ainsley: why do you think this is all happening? why do you think kim jong-un agreeing to sit down with the president and get rid of nuclear weapons? is this the maximum pressure campaign? >> that is combination, that didn't come from nowhere but pressure president trump got china to put on north korea. it is pressure plus the realization, that you have a leader there isn't like the same old people who just did nothing. you never know what this guy is going to do. i think that kind of change to the old diplomatic ways of going bit have got them to the table, started to think, wow, we better take this guy seriously. we never know what he will do. >> not just about north korea, within the next 10 days, we'll decide on the iranian deal. could be june vladmir putin comes to town. in july there will be visit with your prime minister theresa may. those are just the main points. there will be a lot in between. that summit going on in china right now is so vitally
5:46 am
important. even thomas friedman, very vocal critic of the president is saying we have to stop china now or it is going to be too late. this is a president that is doing it. >> that's exactly right. i really notice that as well. i notice it is interesting friedman laid out, actually for the last few decades the establishment in both parties stood by while china has pursued its aim of world domination and he is basically saying trump is the first president who has woken up to that. it is starting to fight back and that is something that we should all support. steve: there is the next revolution going on the weekends, on the channel, hosted by steve hilton. thanks for joining us from california. ainsley: we're going to the royal wedding together. we'll cover it. brian: just you two? ainsley: just two of us. he is my date. we have a whole team going. it will be fun. steve: he is your plus one? ainsley: he would get invited before i would. i would be his plus one.
