3:02 am
until the afternoon. pete: that was your start on kentucky derby. abby: that's true. ed: everybody thought my tie was the clouds but it's kentucky derby. abby: race for the roses, of course. pete: fresh flowers on the weekend. first time ever. abby: janice dean is down there. she will be with us all morning long. stay here if you want updates on the kentucky derby and a lot of news. ed: the president's critics have been salivating about the special counsel investigation for many months now. and the president's supporters have been saying hang on a second. you need to look at the investigators. let's investigate the investigators. whether it's perhaps crooked people like andrew mccabe at the fbi or whether the special counsel has overreach. and scope of the special -- and the critics of the president have said this is just whining, complaining,
3:03 am
there is nothing to this. hang on, time out. yesterday, big deal a federal judge, ts ellis is saying maybe there is overreach here. this is ridiculous. look what he said relating to paul manafort charges. you don't really care about mr. manafort's bank fraud he said to mr. mueller's team. what you care about is what information mr. manafort could give that you would reflect on mr. trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment. come on, man. i mean, when do you see a federal judge say common, come , man. abby: he basically was saying you guys have got to give me more here. this is a stretch if you are talking about bank and tax fraud with paul manafort. ed: dating back to 2005. abby: what does that have to do with russian collusion. he has been saying what people have been saying for a long time including you, pete. pete: this is the special impeachment counsel. that's what they are going for. that's what this judge
3:04 am
acknowledged. a truth spoken to mueller's brand of democrat prosecutors who are coming after paul manafort. what he said at the end of that statement also was -- because, when you turn someone in an investigation, it's known in the vernacular as singing. the witness is going to sing. he said be careful, you may not only sing, you may end up composing. meaning you are writing a song. you are building a narrative based on things you are pulling out of people in distressed situations. paul manafort is fighting. i don't know if paul man ford is innocent or guilty of what happened to him in 2006. he is fighting back. and he believes that what's happened to him is not material to the scope of the mueller probe. ed: the president's critics have been salivating that paul manafort is going to sing about who? about president trump. if he had something on president trump he would have sung by now. abby: the president yesterday was in dallas speaking to the nra. as he usually does, he uses it as a bully pulpit to talk about everything on his mind. this happened right before he went out on that stage.
3:05 am
ed: he brought a copy of the news report. abby: he read it to the crowd. here is how that went. >> none of that information has to do with information related to the russian government coordination and the campaign of donald trump. how does this have anything to do with the campaign, the judge asked. let me, folks, we are all fighting battles. i love fighting these battles. it's really a disgrace. abby: allen dershowitz. he said this is not about politics. what's going on here and the stretch, he said we should all be concerned because this could happen to any one of us talking about paul manafort and others involved. here's what he said. >> what they are doing to these people, like manafort and flynn and cohen could happen to any of us. if we happen to be collateral damage. if you know somebody who they are going after, they are going to find something on you. they are going to squeeze you. this is something that has
3:06 am
plagued the american justice system for many decades. they do it to get the mafia. maybe it's understandable. if they do it to get terrorists, it's understandable. to do it to get an elected president of the united states, to use that mafia terrorist tactic of squeezing people and making them testify and making them sing and making them compose endangering the civil liberties of all americans. pete: judge's larger point was what was paul manafort's bigger sin in the eyes of mueller he was trump's campaign manager. that was the sin. abby: unlucky guy. pete: that he drag his entire life through the mud. my question is where is rod rosenstein as far as confining this special counsel. ed: is he overseeing the probably. pete: he gets to decide where they go and when they go. when president trump says he likes these fights, i was in pennsylvania yesterday outside of yuengling country. they gave me these great

yuengling logger socks. how undersiege is he unbelievable. he had he retired general flynn was mentioned by alan dershowitz. remember how some of his trouble started during the presidential transition. did he violate the logan act by undermining the foreign policy of the obama administration when the trump administration was not in yet? and you heard the trump people saying no, hang on a second. this was transition to power. he was getting ready to help the president. that's why he was conducting negotiations about russia. now relearn that john kerry, the former secretary of state, he could be in violation of the logan act what he is doing now, abby. abby: as you remember, he was very involved in the iran deal. and this is legacy for john kerry. he is concerned because is he wondering what's going to happen with this deal. the president has made it clear time and time again he is not happy with the deal and likely he is not going to continue it on. this is a quote coming from the "boston globe." it says kerry has been on an aggressive yet selfie mission to preserve it he is using his deep list of contacts gleaned during his
3:08 am
time in the top u.s. diplomat to try to apply pressure on the trump administration from the outside. so he is trying to preserve everything he can. ed: of course. more than just pressure though. meeting with world leaders surreptitiously. hey, what can we do? isn't that undermining of the current administration? pete: former secretary of state is contacting officials in foreign government. ed: foreign minister of iran. pete: of iran, his good buddy to try to convince the trump administration to stay in the deal they crafted guess what, guys, there was an elections. the iran deal was on the ballot. hillary clinton supported it. president trump didn't. the american people voted for president trump. said is he going to rip it up. he has been much more measured in his approach. ed: he said that in public? pete: this is my run down for the whole show. i just ripped up the iran deal i ripped up my run down for the entire show. there is another deadline on may 12th. we will see what happens. this is interference. abby: ed, you have been in d.c. a long time.
3:09 am
have you ever seen something like this happen. ed: no, i haven't. what's interesting is that critics of john kerry were on social media looks like a violation of the logan act. supporters of kerr ynsd at obama administration were saying no, the "boston globe," at the end of the story says, it's not a violation. so the "boston globe" said it okay. final. case closed. pete: are they singing you have a friend in me anywhere? that's what i want to know. abby: stay tuned for this. we have a lot of other headlines we are following this morning that i want to get right now to a fox news alert. an indiana police officer shot and killed while investigating a homicide case. officers approaching the suspect at an apartment complex. the man opened fire. causing a shootout with police. >> he got his muzzle out. he has a rifle. is he pointing it at us. abby: the suspect killed in that gunfire, a fallen officer, a veteran of terre haute police department has

donald trump isn't getting enough credit. but, if you look at his twitter, and i hate to recommend that to anybody, he says 3.9% unemployment. we broke 4. in the meantime, witch-hunt. if he wants to prioritize this topic, he should try and focus at least until the end of his own sentence. ed: we can let him talk about robert mueller and whatnot. can you admit that the economy is getting stronger
3:17 am
under donald trump. >> i think what valerie jarrett said is absolutely right there. is still steam in the barack obama. we have gone down from where we were at the height of the recession. job growth has remained largely stable. but now we are starting to see concerning trends where wages remain stag napolitano. monthly job growth is starting to track below replacement, which is 150,000. ed: sure. >> we hit that a couple months in the row that rate is go going start creeping back up. ed: you mentioned valerie jarrett. we will hear from her. >> job rate lowest 3.9% unemployment rate 15 months of donald trump's presidency. do you give him credit for that? >> we have to look at it over a longer horizon than that if you think about what the economy was like when president obama took office, and we were losing 750,000 jobs a month, and under his watch, the unemployment rate dropped in half, and it's encouraging to see that
3:18 am
we're continuing to make progress. ed: max, that's all well and good. barack obama stopped the job losses big time. i was there covering him in 2009. that's a lifetime ago. i want to ask you again, sure, so barack obama staved off the job locals in 2009. does donald trump get credit now? let's talk in the present tense. >> i think it's good any time americans have more jobs. ed: does he get credit? >> i think that's a tough thing to say. ed: you want to give barack obama credit when things were going okay under him. i have given you three or four more chances now. does donald trump get any credit. >> i think if we can get to the point where job growth figures are more evenly distributed to the places hurting the most getting those jobs we can talk about that. ed: he has been president more than a year. the economy is good. combined confidence is strong. job growth is strong. you are saying it's not strong enough. barack obama hasn't been in office for 15 months. does donald trump get even
3:19 am
iota credit from democrats. >> we can say thank you for not completely tanking the longest -- ed: we are now living in 282018, for the last time does donald j. trump get any credit. >> i think donald trump has given himself more than enough credit than anybody. ed: he has cut regulations and taxes has that helped the economy. >> not if you look at labor force participation. if you are rich or own a huge business like apple. ed: companies giving out bonuses to average workers as well. >> companies spent $300 billion buying back their own stock. less than half that amount. actually giving raises which are longer term than just a bonus. ed: all right, max. no credit for the president i see. we you have back. we will try again. a breast cancer screening failure now being blamed for hundreds of deaths in the u.k. brutal story is this the side effects of government run heck or not? it could help in america. we will ask dr. nicole saphier next.

3:25 am
detection or screening programs. it's an abomination when it is due to a government computer glitch. what happened was in the u.k., under their government system, have you to be invited to undergo your cancer screening. it's not a conversation you are having with the doctor. you get a letter that says you can go and get your mammogram now. what happened was a computer error in 2009 made it so 450,000 women didn't get that letter and therefore didn't get their breast cancer screening. they are saying up to 270 women died from advanced breast cancer. perhaps because they did not undergo this screening. really, you will only see such a monumental disaster as this when you have that single pair government-run system. because patients are codified numbers on a spreadsheet. this is what happens when you do away with that doctor-patient relationship. which we are still fornghtd to have in the united states. >> you have a loft democrats calling for that here in the united states. bernie sanders is often talking about single pair. what would that mean if we implemented that here in the
3:26 am
u.s.? >> bernie sanders loves to use my face when he was unilateral debates with me about single pair. but i would love to see his positive spin on this. this is a catastrophe. and, yes, if we implement a single pair system, now, what they have in the u.s.c. a little bit different. it's called universal healthcare where not only is government in charge of the insurance, but everyone is employed by the government. all the physicians are employed by the government. their screening programs are actually very different than what we have in the united states. they have to cost cut and ration some of their care. they don't even benefit from breast cancer screening the way we do in the united states. if we are to go to any form of single pair, by the way, canada does the same thing. they don't have nearly great robust system that we have in the united states in terms of breast cancer screening. if we go to a single pair system, cost also need to be cut. and in that largely does come from preventative medicine and screenings. so that is a huge concern i have for us. abby: should women be concerned here in the u.s.?
3:27 am
>> when you go to the polls and vote for a single pair system you are saying i want to be a number on a spreadsheet. you will be separating yourself from that doctor-patient relationship. instead of your doctor saying to you these are your risk factors, you need to start your screening now, you are on a spreadsheet and you will get a letter telling you if and when you need to do something. who do you want to trust? abby: unbelievable. all right, dr. saphier, always good to have you on the show. >> thank you for having me. abby: coming up on the show, president trump promising to defend gun owners at the nra convention yesterday. >> you have an administration fighting to protect your second amendment and we will protect your second amendment. abby: dan bongino is here to react next. plus, here is something that you don't expect to see on a cruise, how a nightmare vacation had water flowing from the ceilings and what the passengers had to endure. that is coming up. you don't want to miss this.

[applause] we will never fail.
3:32 am
and we will always protect your second amendment. abby: president trump yesterday in dallas speaking to the nra. someone else that was there was dan bongino. former nypd officer. former secret service agent and, of course, host of the dan bongino show and nra tv contributor. dan, always good to see you. what was the mood like yesterday? >> abby, they love this president. it was palpable. i know, commentators come on sometimes at other conventions and they say things like oh you could feel -- no, you really could. people love this president. even my wife who was with me, she came down and she came down after me and she goes my gosh, everybody is talking about president trump. i think they see him as a real defender of their second amendment rights. abby, it's important, i think they feel like their second amendment rights are under a 30 front attack here. and they see the president is standing in the way of that. pete: dan, part of that 30
3:33 am
front attack is in the courts and special counsel and show down happening there yesterday, there was a break in the clouds if you will. federal judge t.s. elio t.s. ele ripped into the mueller team, the prosecutors, of not really wanting to go after paul manafort and his misdeeds but instead targeting team trump. dan, you have been warning about this from the beginning. what do you make of this judge? >> this judge is my new hero. if i see this guy, i'm asking him for his autograph because, listen, i'm not an autograph collector either. this is the first guy to come out and say this judge and say, hey, where's the case? where's the darn case? we have been told for months that there is some big scandal to overturn an election. trump spoke with the russians. they colluded to trade all this information. nobody has produced a scintilla of evidence. the judge finally comes up and says hey, fellows, do
3:34 am
you have an actual case here? and what does the defense say in the government says well, there is a scope document but we don't think you need to see that the judge, pete, says i will decide that thanks, fellows. abby: he said let me be the judge. ed: literally. ed: dan, on that point. the "new york times" this morning massive story about a federal judge saying enough is enough here, page 8:13 at the bottom, federal judge questions counsel's pursuit of ma mann for the. hopursuit ofmanafort. he says basically, let's not give people the idea democrats want to quote, unquote, nullify an election hasn't that been what adam schiff has been doing for over a year now? >> he had ed, listen, adam schiff is a fraud. i'm sorry. is he a fraud. i say that and i mean it. i know those are harsh
3:35 am
words. adam schiff is not a stupid man. this is a smart guy. adam schiff has access to information on his intel committee as you and i don't. he has known for at least a year now, if not longer, that this collusion story with the russians is a hoax. yet, he has gone on every media channel he can. puts his makeup on and does his thing and said that trump colluded with the russians. only reason is he writing this op-ed now i believe is because is he starting to see that the american public based on polling data is catching on this is a hoax and getting frustrated. schiff is a fraud. is he not doing the right thing, he doing the easy thing. pete: you are saying the guys closest to the evidence outside of the mueller probe have starting to realize we have looked at it. it ain't there. we better recalibrate otherwise we better boomerang back at us for a false narrative. >> this was a set-up. i have been saying this for a year and a half.
3:36 am
look at the information, the trump team was set up. there were crimes committed here, pete there were leaks of highly classified information there were crimes committed with the trading of classified information in the clinton email scandal. those crimes had to be covered. they had to set up trump to keep the attention on him and away from them. this will come out in the wash. they will be horrified, the democrats at the truth. abby: federal judge in alexandria yesterday seems to have a lot of the same questions. always great to see you. ed: t.s. eliot. that is an author. abby: other stories to bring you starting on a serious note. manhunt intensifying for a gunman who shot an atf agent in the face. police conducting raids on the south side of chicago, sending the suspect this message: >> we will find you.

full disclosure i love terry shapner. on this subject of north korea we haven't talked. >> no, no. pete: how much of the president's approach, his rhetoric should get credit for the developments we have had. >> he gets full credit as a president. it's not just a talk. because i think your enemies and you know, this we are both combat guys. your enemies will respect you if they think there is going to be action taken. we saw in the previous administration lots of talk. all sorts of talk. and it was never backed up. so, our enemies, bad guys knew that with president trump, whether you like him or not, it's safe to say that the people that are against us are not sure if he is really -- they actually believe he might reach out and hurt them. pete: that's the most important calculation. he may actually bomb us. >> if they thought at any moment that he was full of b.s. and not really willing to follow through, they wouldn't even come to the table. they obviously think this guy might just be the one to do it. and you negotiation right before i came on, i was watching the democratic strategist talking to ed
3:46 am
henry, and the guy just could not admit one bit that the president trump gets credit for the economy. it's embarrassing for the left, because they won't admit it. they won't admit it on north korea. it's going to hurt them. pete: admit the obvious and won't agree on other stuff. >> absolutely. pete: we have a clip of the president yesterday saying the date has been set. >> we have a date and we have a location. we will be announcing it. pete: we don't know where it is. where will it be. >> that's a good question. i'm not sure about that. as i was talking to you before, be prepared for some of this being a con from north or south korea. and i feel like that's not a reflection on president trump. i think they are going to go this way. what you should watch for is sudden cancellations, pulling out, conditions being put on top of it right before. so that they can say well, we tried but president trump didn't cooperate with us.
3:47 am
so, wherever they are going to do it, however they are going to do it, let's just see if we can rail them into that time and place. pete: what the is most important thing we have to make sure happens from america first what has to happen to be successful. >> that's a good question. south korea has got to know they are safe with us. they are still our ally and north korea still has to know that this is not a piece of paper. pete: yep. >> this is actually binding agreement that we are going to enforce and check up on you because they have gotten away with it. pete: terry, have you done a lot of things on the outside for vets. >> task force daggers. special operation command. a million dollars in support last year. we do immediate needs. we lost a guy in afghanistan. we need plane tickets. medical access to things like the cleveland clinic and also rehabilitative therapy. this time this year we are actually taking wounded vets and training them in maritime archaeology. we have access to dive on

4:04 am
>> this is the first guy to come out and say this judge and say hey, where's the case? where's the darn case? we have been told for months that there is some big scandal to overturn an election. trump spoke with the russians. they colluded to trade all this information. nobody has produced a scintilla of evidence. there is a scope document but we don't think you need to see that and the judge, pete, says i'll decide that thanks, fellows but you can produce that document. i'll be the judge of that. thank you. ed: come on, man, as you said, this is becoming overreach. something president trump has been saying for a long time. his critics have laughed that idea off. he jumped on it when he at the nra convention in dallas reading news reports saying look at this, folks. look at this. what does the "new york times" say today. page a 13, questions pursuit of manafort. this is a big deal. pete: have you labeled your
4:05 am
"new york times" the failing "new york times." ed: i don't do that. pete: they fail to report offer times on the big issues. ed: up to manafort it would be all over the top of page 1. blow to president trump. three stories on page 1. abby: so quick to get out stories that aren't always accurate. like with what happened with michael cohen. just a reminder of what the role of journalism is today. the most important thing is to get the facts right. we are so concerned about getting the story out as fast as we possibly can. and to have it be a certain narrative. i think it's a reminder everyone to that works in media. press the reset button but also the reminder that the american people, i think they are wanting to focus on other stories and focus on things more positive that impact their lives. pete: there are moments of clarity inside the muck where someone speaks truth like this judge and basically says the only sin of paul manafort and he may have committed crimes, we will see. weighs donald trump's campaign manager. because he was his campaign manager, now they want him to sing. that's a term of flipping. and he said you may not want
4:06 am
him to sing. you may be trying to compose. and that's a great way of putting is that what bob mueller is doing compose ago narrative about russian collusion or obstruction, flipping people to try to turn on the president when there really is no evidence. ed: that's a bigger point the president has been saying for a long time investigate the investigators. that includes robert mueller and his team but also includes james comey out on this book tour still milking it and making allegations. he was on with bret baier a few days back. here's what he said and we will analyze on the other side. >> you tell lawmakers that fbi agents didn't believe former national security advisor michael flynn was lying intentionally to investigators? >> no. i saw that in the media. i don't know what, maybe someone misunderstood something i said. i didn't believe that and i didn't say that. abby: house intel report has been out. better version came out yesterday with some of the redacted stuff. unredacted. let me read you part of that it says director comey testified to the committee that the agents disernsd no physical indications of
4:07 am
deception. they didn't see any change in posture and tone, inelection and eye contact. they saw nothing that indicated to them knew he was lying. ed: james comey told the committee, pete, that they didn't think he was lying. and then bret baier asked about it and he says i don't remember that. pete: now he doesn't remember at all. it all further calls into question the credibility of james comey who has been singing a tune, very different than what he did when he was the director of the fbi. maybe composing a narrative. you know what else is coming ucoming? unredacted portions of the house intel committee that reveals things about comey. you have the inspector general michael horowitz at doj. he still hasn't released his big report looking at potential fisa abuses. remember lisa page and strzok? abby: as of yesterday she still worked at the fbi. pete: until yesterday. abby: she was demoted
4:08 am
because you remember those text messages between her and peter strzok talking about opinions of the president and other things. a lot of frustration of all people she was not fired from the fbi. she has been there the last few months. as of yesterday, she has resigned from her position saying she wants to move on to other things. ed: so has james baker. he had been the general counsel. he has resigned as well. they are getting ahead of the ig report. it's going to be bad. phase one of that ig report came out it was about andrew mccabe. that was tied to his firing and that report came out. a larger report we are told about fbi abuses maybe and department of justice. pete: we have been waiting for it for a while. ed: the fact that they have now resigned maybe their teams, you know, have gotten hey, here is your final comment. this thing is coming out. trying to get ahead of that. abby: how many people over the last year have been fired or have.
4:09 am
pete: conspiracy. dan bongino was talking about. political conspiracy to decertify the election of november. the election didn't got way they wanted. they used the organs of intelligence committee to spy on the trump camp. they pushed it out to the media. then they thought it was all this coordinated campaign get the dossier out there. we have clapper and comey. now it's all coming out. this inspector general report is another part of it we will see. not good for democracy. abby: it may not be over yet there is a lot of news going on this morning. also in foreign policy. john derry, you might remember when he was secretary of state, his legacy, the thing that he spent most of the time working on with this iran deal that we are now still talking about whether the president is going to continue on with that deal. i think the date is may 12th. make a decision if is he going to pull out or stay in it. so, according to the "boston globe," they talk about john kerry working behind the scenes aggressively to keep that deal intact and to
4:10 am
maybe make some changes to preserve what he thinks is his entire legacy. ed: aggressive yet stealthy mission. doing it in secret to preserve it using his deep list of contacts gleaned during his time as the top u.s. diplomat. remember, pair ren they pair rey thickly. it's america. if you want to speak out lobby congress and the president say look, i disagree, mr. president, i think we should save the nuclear deal. fine. should you be meeting with the iranian foreign minister one of our enemies to undermine this administration? raising questions about the logan act. and, remember, that's what general flynn initially the charges were oh, did he maybe violate the logan act in his negotiations with the russians during the transition when barack obama was still in power? democrats were all exercised about that. now one of their own, john kerry appears to be undermining this administration saying the logan act doesn't apply.
4:11 am
pete: of course. the "boston globe" says don't worry no logan act vitals here. we have a secretary of state, his name is mike pompeo. we'll don't need a shadow secretary of state. if we wanted him to be secretary of state, we would have elected hillary clinton. think about this. working with foreign leaders to undermine your current sitting president? abby: not just a foreign leader. foreign leader of iran. pete: of iran and other folks party to this deal in europe. this is bad stuff. ed: i wonder what the israeli prime minister thinks about that. pete: who? ed: benjamin netanyahu. pete: b.b. call us up. abby: starting with a fox news alert. indiana police officer shot and killed while investigating a homicide case u officers approaching the suspect in apartment complex and man opened fire causing a shootout with police. >> you guys -- he has a rifle. is he pointing it at us. abby: the suspect killer and -- the suspect killed in that gunfire.

makes them feel good antwon, what jumps out at you? >> say it again? ed: what jumps out at you at this poll. joe biden, elizabeth warren and bernie sanders won't go away. >> loud voice on the choir calling out holding this president accountable. democratic primary votes, likely voters are excited about that polls are a snapshot of the time. and i think any poll about 2020, the who specifically may be a bit premature. what can i tell you about the what and the why is the fact that democrats are excited. 18 will be a very exciting year and 2020 will be even more exciting because this president has failed the american people. >> definitely the party of old as you can see by the candidates as well. it seems like the democratic party is going more for socialist agenda. that can't win an anational election. it seems like they are going more for impeachment crowd. people concerned about the day-to-day issues of the

4:54 am
work part time at night. it's really tough out there. and college students need to understand that that's the reality of life. abby: be a what's changed in the last few years. you talk about entry level jobs. that's the way it used to be for everybody. go out and get a job. not glamorous. don't get paid anything. you learn and how to figure out the real world. what's changed that people aren't willing to do that. >> so much has changed. the parenting culture has changed. parents coddle children, overprotect them. often parents do instead of teach. detrimental to kids. go to college and protected from anything that might offend them. instead of rigorous debate, they are offered safe spaces and speech codes and trigger warnings. employers are not going to stand for this. they are certainly not going to care about your feelings. and so, i think college students really are in for a bit of a culture shock when they get out of college. pete: besides joining the
4:55 am
military which i would recommend good way to get out of this whole thing. have you helicopter parents and then have you safe spaces. what could a parent do right now realize who, i didn't prepare my kid for the real world. how do you pull it back and get them prepared? >> very simple thing. look, teach your kids how to make a simple meal for themselves. teach them how the to do laundry. give them chores where they earn a small amount of money. let them walk to the store by themselves where they can purchase something that they want. let them walk to school. give them more freedom to make decisions on their own. abby: also, teach them how to use social media. pete and i didn't have instagram when we were in college, probably for the best. you don't think about when you are in high school and college the things you are posting that that might impact the job that you will get when you graduate. >> very good point. keep your social media clean. thankfully there were barely computers when i was young. i was able to avoid. that is very important. employers are increasingly looking at people's public profiles and their social
4:56 am
media profiles. good important point. pete: you are part of something called the culture alarmism project. i think i know what it means. explain to our viewers what it means. >> parents are told part of the reason we have helicoptering parenting. parents are told there are dangers around every corner. that's not true. we live in safer times. more access to healthcare and products before. safe products. i try to tell parents not to be so worried. let your kids go out there and explore. pete: basically the quit freaking out project. >> that's far better name. pete: i love the approach. abby: good to have you on. >> thanks for having me. pete: white house reporter april ryan firing back about relationships with president trump's press secretary. listen. >> i have had relationships with press secretaries. i just don't seem to understand why these last two press secretaries like to point me out. abby: one person she is talking about is sean spicer. is he here to respond top of the hour.

5:04 am
i think overall it's a good thing that they're getting out of the way. i think that justice still needs to be served and we look forward to seeing what the ig says. abby: nbc news was in some hot water earlier this week for reporting on a story that michael cohen, the president's attorney was wiretapped. that turned out to be not true. here is the tweet. they said a great public servant -- can we pull that back? pete: that was a tweet from comey. abby: that was a tweet from comey. we are talking about -- sorry about, that sean. >> sean: that's the baker one. >> your response to how the media is -- they jump so quickly to report a story. how often we have seen so far this administration they have had to retract and had to apologize. >> well, it's fascinating to me when the media screws up and in this case they screwed up big time in their pursuit of going after president trump. their instinct after they view up to say the story has been updated. when the situation is fluid at the white house and facts are coming out and sarah or myself back in the day went
5:05 am
out and tried to give them the best we could at the time we are called liars. when they do it it's called an update there is no apoll, there is no regret. i think that's a very interesting double standard by which they do their job. somebody else updates the facts as they come out, they are a liar. if they do it themselves it's called an update. i think this is embarrassment for nbc as it has in the past for other news organizations that have jumped the gun. pete: such a great point. semantics matter. if a politician does something they are lying. if a journalist does something think update or correct. that's what chuck todd and tom winter said. listen to what they said in their correction. >> earlier today, nbc reported that 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 you in to the phone calls. >> 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
5:06 am
that this is a -- it was not a wiretap. instead, it is what is referred to as a pin religion register. in plain english a log of phone calls made. pete: always three anonymous u.s. officials. no accountability on where the information comes from as well. >> correct. well, further, there is no accountability. as we said when they screw up, it's just they say that we are updating the story and they move on. when somebody else does it, they continue to question their integrity. although, they may have gone out with the best intentions to give the facts that there were available at the time. so, i do think it's fascinating the double standard that exists. ed: sean you have been in that briefing room and sarah sanders. pete: you have been in there too. ed: sarah sanders went back and forth with someone that you had exchanges with as well april ryan: let's listen to. this you said yourself blindsided. >> i actually didn't use
5:07 am
that term. >> i said it you were blindsided by what was said. >> sarah, with all due respect you actually don't know much about me in terms of what i feel and what i don't. ed: april ryan, i don't want to drag this on, but look at what she did with that, seemed to take it to a whole another level, watch. >> it was not personal. what it shows me is that she was feeling that she was in a vice. you know of sorts. she went straight to me. to say something like you know, you don't know me. in certain sections of it nation, people understanding what you don't know me means. it's very street. it leads to a fight. a physical fight. so i'm not there to fight. i'm there to ask questions and doing it for 21 years very well. and i have had relationships with press secretaries. i just don't seem to understand why these last two press secretaries like to point me out. ed: sean, what say you?
5:08 am
she is suggesting there is something between you and april? abby: a street fight, sean. >> we're going to disarm here. look, i think that both sarah and i have shown april a ton of respect. one of the things that i did when i went into the briefing room was that i increased the number of journalists that i called on. going in the back of the room going to niche plucks and ethnic publications. i believe it was important you for the american people through the briefing to hear more questions from different background that represented different constituencies from america. i think it's interesting that april, who is probably my guess has been called on more in the last by myself and sarah than any previous press secretary is looking at that as an insult. in fact, i think it's a compliment. i think when you look at the nature of the questions she asks. she literally starts off by saying you say you were blind sided. sarah never said it and april turns that into a story in itself. i think the bigger question is why the can't she ask a straightforward question and ask for a straightforward
5:09 am
answer. abby: sean, why do you think she wants to start a fight. >> i don't think she wants to start a fight. she has been in the briefing room 21 years. not just her but a lot of other reporters because of the attention the briefing gets now have gotten new found notoriety. suddenly after engages in back and forth she gets cnn contract. as have other reporters who have greated youtube viral moments not because of the reporting but because back and forth. they are more interested in personal fame. pete: sean, this is honest question, you have been in this briefing room as ed mentioned. do they still believe there is arbiters of fairness and balance and truth. or set in at all that they may be biased or extremely biased against this white house and comes out in the way they question? >> well, there is some that definitely fit that bill. i wouldn't paint it with a broad brush. there are journalists in there that are really committed to doing a great job and focusing on the
5:10 am
facts and solid journalism and story-telling. i think there are several that have realized that they can get new found fame. two things going on in the briefing room. one is there is definitely people with a personal agenda against this president and against conservatives. second, i think there are several of them that, regardless of their personal bias, ideologically, realize they can make more money and more fame by being obnoxious and creating viral moments in the briefing room. i think those combination of things have really change the nature of the briefing room. abby: sean, i think it's a great point. for some people less about the story and more about them personally. it's unfortunate that has to happen. always good to have you on the show. ed: looking forward to the book. >> thanks for the plug but, pete, during the break have you got to do some pushups or something. pete: do them for you right now, sean. doing them. ed: people can't say. pete: sean spicer says he wants pushups he gets a few
5:11 am

5:24 am
the question i have is seeking asylum. all of them coming over that border and the caravan is completely over that border in california. they want to seek asylum. how do you differentiate those that really do need to seek asylum to those that don't? >> well, there's a process for that. the issue here though is that this was a concerted effort to make a circus at the border. and so the asylum claims on their face of it are questionable. especially since mexico offered asylum to almost all of the people in the caravan. so if they had been offered asylum and refused to take it there, what are they doing here? it is for economic reasons that most of these migrants are trying to border and being exploited by open borders lobby that has a special interest in making sure that we can't control our borders. here's the thing. and i have reported on this for the last 25 years. there is a saying in open borders community and it goes like this. it ain't over until the
5:25 am
alien wins. they have know that once these migrants are able to infiltrate the immigration system, it is a litigation lottery and litigation bureaucracy and they are going to inevitably win. this is the understanding now. it's not just a physical border. it's the fact that you have entire immigration system that has been set up separately from immigration enforcement agencies. it's called the executive office for immigration review. it's very little known. i know people's eyes are going to glaze over. the fact is once you get into this lottery, you know what? illegal aliens have more fights at the judicial and court and legal apple than american citizens do. they can appeal this all the way up to the supreme court. be rejected over and over and over again. evade deportation. evade judicial orders to leave the country. and it never ever ends. pete: michelle, briefly, we are going to move on to another topic. >> before we do so, did this caravan back fire? did the president exposing

5:47 am
black unemployment rate just fell 6.6%. the lowest on record. ed: here to break it all down for us fox business network charles payne. we had democratic strategist on earlier in the show and he would give the president no credit at all. >> i don't know how he can continue to do it. these numbers are remarkable. not perfect. difficult situation with a lot of extenuating circumstances. we have got to celebrate what's going on here. that 3.9% number. black unemployment 6.6% the lowest ever. some of the other major milestones. i dug deep into this thing that i thought were great. people working part time for economic reasons that came down. long-term unemployment. people unemployed 27 weeks or lower 3.3 million people. that peeked at 7 million. 7,002,010. so, good producing. i talk about this everywhere i go. this is folks in the heartland, prosperity coming back to the heart land. these are the great jobs where you worky your hands.
5:48 am
i call them dirty fingernail jobs. construction, mining, manufacturing, 49,000 jobs last month. that is unheard of. abby: i talk to people who work in small businesses. they say for them in particular, it has been a huge boon. they are able to bring in more people to help deliver their product. >> if you were to boil down what's happening in this economy, no niche in this economy is more excited about what is happening than small businesses. in fact, small business optimism surged after the election and has remained high in translating into jobs. pete: charles, the state of maine in 2014 began requiring able-body deed people and childless adults on foot stamps t food stamps. what has been the approach? >> beyond mind boggling 80% of the case load vanish you had. had to do three things, get a job. whole lot of jobs up there. particularly lower paying jobs. you have to participate in the work training program or do community service. if you balked at the community service or balked
5:49 am
on any of those then you stopped getting food stamps. people went out and got jobs or simply didn't get food stamps anymore. one thing interesting about this report is how the money was wasted. for instance, over 50% of these able-bodied adults without dependents smoke cigarettes. that came out to $111 a month. by the way, in new york city, that would come out to $3,200 a year. a year that someone that a taxpayer was subsidizing on $3,000 a year to smoke cigarettes. so, the bottom line is, sometimes if you nudge people, sometimes if you just kind of say hey, no more. they find a way to do it themselves. pete: catch on at the federal level? do something like this? >> yes. by the way this was done with bill clinton. in fact, the same results were seen under bill clinton took three years. same thing. able body deed adults able to work but didn't work and getting food stamps, force to get a job, go to work training and do community service end up going back to

6:03 am
he said because i've been saying it now for 25 years and certainly since this trump thing began, i've been saying it on television over and over and over again and he even used my phrase. he said they may not only sing, they may compose, talking about the witness. pete: i literally almost said those exact words. >> i've said those exact words and look every criminal defense lawyer, prosecutor knows this is the truth the way prosecutors operate, mostly in maffia cases and mob cases and terrorist cases you go after the low hanging fruit, you find vulnerable people, charge them with a technical crime. sometimes you stretch the law to charge them with a crime and then you squeeze them and you tell them they're going to jail for 20 years unless they testify against mr. big, this time mr. big sitting in the oval office. everybody knows this is the way prosecutors operate. i've been saying it over and over again, people have been calling me a liar, a conspiracy theorist. you name it. finally we get a judge who absolutely validates this and blows the whistle on the special
6:04 am
counsel. abby: he's saying i will be the judge ultimately when i get that evidence. when do you think he'll come down? >> you never know. he didn't rule and it's certainly possible to say this raises serious questions but it's not enough to throw out the indictment. it will depend on what the special prosecutor can produce. it really is a stretch to go back to 2005. talk about conspiracy theories these guys must have been planning this for the last 18 years and they were going to get money from the bank. it's such a stretch. pete: so the judge is pointing out that it looks like the special counsel's way outside its scope. where is rod rosenstein at this point? the guy whose supposed to be making sure that robert mueller plays within his mandate? >> well first of all he should be recused because he is the key witness in this case, as to why the president fired comey. second, you know -- pete: he recommended it. >> well yeah this is not only mueller but this is flynn. flynn i said right from the beginning i don't see the crime there. they really created a crime of
6:05 am
lying to prosecutors in order to get him to flip and i don't know whether choen committed crimes or not. they wouldn't have been looking at him unless he was trump's lawyer. what happens is the worst place to be in the world is if they're trying to get somebody one of his associates, lawyers, friends because they're coming after you ed: well you mentioned me general michael flynn and james comey as well and our own bret baier interviewed comey a few days back and asked him about this report some months ago suggesting that comey had told the house intelligence committee , fbi agents looked at this a long time ago and did not think that flynn lied. here is what comey said to that first. >> you tell lawmakers that fbi agents didn't believe former national security advisor michael flynn was lying intentionally to investigators? no and i saw that in the media, maybe someone misunderstood something i said. i didn't believe that an didn't say that. ed: and the house intelligence committee says hang on, director
6:06 am
comey testified to the committee that the agents discern no physical changes and differences that would suggest he had been lying, michael flynn during his interview with fbi agents so what do we make of first of all, counselor, that the original fbi agents said they didn't think that flynn was lying and secondly, james comey seems to have selective memory. >> well first you don't go after a distinguished man like flynn who conceivably may have had a memory lapse or may have said something you disagree with that's not the basis for going after somebody and destroying his career unless you think he can turn on the boss, and, you know it's so interesting because comey says that trump is like a maffia boss and now we know that comey and mueller are treating trump as if he were a maffia boss trying to find the soldiers , squeeze them, threaten them, and maybe they'll sing,
6:07 am
maybe they'll compose and there's great risks, because witnesses like this understand the rules of the game. the better the story the better the deal so if you can elaborate -- ed: he hasn't said anything to implicate the president. >> well we don't know and when you get somebody and you threaten his children which is what they did with flynn, i've had cases where they threatened wives, i had cases where they threatened a young man who was just about to graduate columbia law school unless his father flipped on witnesses. this is a common tactic and americans ought to know that. we ought to be concerned about it and every civil libertarian should be speaking out about this but civil libertarians have become fair weather libertarians , when they want to protect their candidate. if this were hillary clinton you can imagine what the aclu would be doing jumping up and down but it's trump and so the aclu is missing in action. pete: it's a great point so people like you who understand the process have been saying things before everybody else. the rest of us learn from
6:08 am
reports, so the house intel committee reveals more that james comey may have misrepresented his position. now, we're anticipating waiting for his michael horowitz doj inspector general report but curiously, yesterday, as it's about to be released we believe in the coming days and weeks, those trump-hating fbi lawyer lisa page and a comey confidant jim baker resigned from the fbi so they've now resigned. do you think it's because they're worried about what maybe in that report? >> well i think everybody is now worried about what honest investigators will find. look as you know, i called from the beginning for a non-partisan independent investigation of the whole connection between russia and the united states and you really have to be worried if you've done something wrong when non-partisan investigators look after you. if it's partisan investigators if it's people who want to get people you just have to pick the right side. if you pick the right side you're safe. if you pick the wrong side you're in real trouble. abby: is the president right now in more of a position of strength or do you think he still has things that he should

be concerned about? >> he has things he should be concerned about and he's also in a position of strength, both. he has to make the hardest decision of his presidency right now whether to testify or cooperate with the special counsel. nobody has ever been helped by cooperating with the special counsel and talking to them in 50 years of practice i've never recommended to a client to go and talk. they don't want to help you. they want to fill gaps and throw you into a perjury trap so this is a hard decision because if he doesn't agree to testify in a limited way, they'll subpoena him. then, he has the right to challenge the subpoena on several grounds. abby: do you think rudy giuliani is helping him so far? >> i think he's a very very smart guy and you can't have three people out there trying to suggest the narrative. the narrative has to be worked out carefully, it has to be true it has to be supported by the evidence and then one voice, preferably in writing, not off
6:10 am
the cuff, should explain what actually happened. i think if the president had explained what happened, clearly , without ambiguity right from the beginning he'd be in better shape well this happened that happened. pete: thank you for that transition you talk about one voice usually america on the world stage and foreign policy supposed to have one voice but we're learning today from the boston globe in an article that john carry the former secretary of state under barack obama has been as they say in the article on an aggressive yet stethy mission to preserve the iran deal, as a top u.s. diplomat to try to apply pressure on the trump adminitration from the outside. he's going backchannel to undermine this. >> well john is a friend of mine i've known him for a long long time but remember how this investigation against trump begins. it begins by the theory that people in the trump campaign may be violating the logan act, by going and speaking to people when they haven't yet been president. fortunately for everybody the logan act's a dead letter but if it were in existence, my friend
6:11 am
john kerry would be violating the logan act. he is negotiating they though he is not in the administration and there are real problems with doing that. look i would like to see the iran deal change to eliminate the sunset provisions, to have much more vigorous inspections. we can do much better than we do now and if john can accomplish that, all power to him but if what he's doing is just trying to preserve a bad deal, he shouldn't be doing it. abby: and undermine the president. ed: counselor last question last time we were on the show together the red sox had an eight game lead over the yankees last night i checked it down to one game. i know i should have worn my red sox tie. i knew you were going to ask me that. look baseball is a game of streaks and people win streaks, they lose streaks. i predict american league finals this year red sox, yankees, great great. ed: great alcs. abby: and you're sticking around with us professor to go play outside?

6:25 am
speech." many are skeptical to the commitment than any other of the pursuit of wealth and fame through the investigation of independence think equation of anger, fear in their hard-right constituency so our next guest was locked in a building during one of those riots and he organized campus reform correspondent and executive vice president of uc berkeley college of republicans bradley devlin joins us so as a member of the college republicans who invited folks like ben shapiro to campus you're part of a giant conspiracy to make the university look bad. >> yes, the free speech commission was a group of individuals to author a report about the violence going on on u c berkeley's campus and they said that it was some large conspiracy that i was intentionally trying to make the university look bad and intolerant. listen i was there during the riots. i was there for countless hours meeting with the university administration to host ben shapiro on campus and i have three pages of documents showing
6:26 am
that our club members have been assaulted routinely on campus. this is absurd. pete: so this so-called free speech commission, were you involved or were there any college republicans involved and how did they determine who got to judge you guys? >> they completely neglected my e-mails and my requests to have a member of the berkeley college republicans represented on this free speech commission because we now that the university would label us and spread this misinformation. look at the cited sources, cnn, buzzfeed these are at mainstream media that is fake news and they don't do their due diligence to talk to the berkeley college republicans about the fact. pete: wait so how does it work you have a speaker, you invite them to campus, because of the size of the riots and violence to be waged against the speaker the university has to protect the students and free speech yet you're to blame? it's not the intolerant environment of a university that's hard left? >> you're absolutely right. i mean, we go into countless hours of security meetings to make sure that our guests are
6:27 am
safe and listen, we're not asking for special treatment. we're asking for equal treatment we're making sure that our constitutional rights are upheld it's their obligation to make sure our rights are protected and that's why we have a lawsuit moving forward with the young america's foundation against the uc california berkeley because they refuse to secure our rights on campus. pete: bradley what happens when a socialistic or a member of antifa speaks are there conservative riots that require police? >> absolutely not. conservatives are not there to commit violence. they're there to civilly disagree and that's why organizations like the berkeley college republicans are so important. they are exposing liberal students to an idea and to principals that they've never heard before and it is completely a foreign concept to them because they are completely indoctrinated by the leftist administration that's spine less making sure the conservative values are upheld on campus. pete: bradley briefly how many conservative professors at berkeley? >> i know of two. pete: okay, two. all right that's two more than i

6:46 am
are out locking for jobs, companies are hiring how much of this has to do with the tax cuts do you think? neil: well we do know with a lot of the companies that have reported earnings, abbey that more than half of them benefited directly and it improved their numbers exponentially from those tax cuts there's no de lying it when you see rates to the degree they are you'd have to be an idiot not to make money with that so the question going forward as you maintain that momentum i tend to look at companies revenues in other words their sales that sometimes are apart from what you got" from tax cuts and those have been strong as well and a lot of people point there to the cut back in regulation that's provided a good environment for these companies but the tax cuts certainly have been very very beneficial in fact where the president is going today in cleveland a lot of the companies have been sharing the loot with their workers including one big one in the cleveland area that handed out $500 bonuses so some of that bounty is sort of being spread. abby: and the big question everyone's asking who deserves the credit for the economy?
