3:02 am
brian were born on the same day. ainsley: happy birthday. brian: thank you very much. ainsley: you thought we forgot. brian: no, i didn't. ainsley: we haven't mentioned it yet this morning. brian: run down three hours all about me. ainsley: unless it's going to be -- brian: we have talked enough about me. robert mueller got two rebukes back to back came from judges on a friday. judges sometimes work on saturday. first one came in a stunning rebuke in the afternoon on friday. that was from -- i think it was judge ellis iii. he just said we have been saying a lot on this couch, what exact solid your mandate and why are you making paul manafort a fall guy? steve: it's interesting because he wants to see the so-called scope memo that spells out the scope of the
3:03 am
investigation. and the government doesn't want to show that they say it's super secret, but the judge says, look, i want to know where you got the authority to indict mr. manafort on things that happened in 2005. keep in mind, if it's the russia deal in 2016, how come you are going back 10 years earlier? ainsley: the judge said you are going after manafort for filing false income tax returns. failure to file reports on foreign bank accounts. they say you raid his house. it's obvious what you are doing. you are trying to squeeze manafort. he said you tightened the screws and they will begin to provide information in what you are really interested in. they are saying this judge is eviscerating mueller and mueller's team for using manafort to get to the president and try to find something. brian: what is interesting and legal minds have said okay, you are looking into president trump. for some reason things michael cohen and you say to
3:04 am
the southern district of new york take this michael cohen case, it's not my problem; robert mueller defers it over and says give it to the southern district of new york. in paul manafort has done something in 2006, refer it to the virginia and say this has nothing to do with the president of the united states. refer it over here. instead they want to keep this guy front and center. ainsley: rudy giuliani said this is a trap. they are all asking him to testify. we want this president to testify and answer these questions. he says i don't trust james comey. he is a liar. the president has done nothing wrong but i'm not going to advise him to testify because it's a trap. this is not a fantasy world and he special counsel thinks comey is moses. i happen to think he is judas. listen to him on one of the sunday shows. >> hillary clinton treatment is what i'm looking for. and that is no under oath. only a q and a. we get the questions in advance and they write the report two weeks before. i believe after judge ellis' remarks, there's no question
3:05 am
that the amount of government misconduct is accumulating. i happen to be it's greater than anybody realizes. very embarrassing to my former justice department and very embarrassing not to fbi agents. please, nobody is attacking fbi agents and lawyers we are attacking the leadership of both organizations. brian: making people question what exactly are you doing? why is rod rosenstein just saying robert mueller, you have a lot to work with. stay in your lane. steve: that's why congress wants to see the scope memo. that's why this judge wants to see the scope memo. i was talking to somebody from the department of justice. they won't let anybody see it they say national security stuff in there and i asked them the question so, if what's going on mind the scenes i had heard there might be actually two scope memos. they said nope, there is just one. sometimes if mr. mueller has questions, he will call mr. rosenstein on the phone and say hey, i want to look into this thing, can i do
3:06 am
that and they will hash it out on the phone. isn't that cozy? >> jason riley from the "wall street journal" editorial page, he cited that first case where the judge says, hey, you can't have unfettered power go back to 2005. that's not what this is about. listen to him. >> so what judge ellis said here, which is that he said to mueller's team: you do not have unfettered power here. you can't have unfettered power. you should be working within parameters. many trump supporters think this is no longer about paul manafort's bank fraud or financial dealings. this is about doing whatever it takes to bring down donald trump. and people are very concerned about that. trump supporters are very concerned that mueller has not kept his eye on the ball. that he has gone outside of his mandate and that latitude has been given to him by rod rosenstein. brian: i hate to tell you, and bill clinton's case in point, if you are going after president trump about colluding with russia and
3:07 am
have nothing and obstructing of justice if there is no crime there and get nothing. then you are going to go i have a problem with a casino deal or a golf course purchase or scottish transaction. the american people aren't going to stand for it independents and trump supporters. i think democrats would be embarrassed by it already. nobody denies it. the president's numbers are ticking up. making democrats wonder is the anti-trump message enough to run on the should have showed you no. steve: each congressional district who indictment in congress? somebody who has simply talked about their there might this russia thing or somebody who is got you tax cuts? and that's the message mr. mccarthy is going to have in about two hours. ainsley: rudy giuliani said they can't prove collusion and obstructions. that's why they are asking all these questions if you read the questions about how do you feel? what were your thoughts during all of that. let us know what you think.
3:08 am
brian: i wonder what gina haspel was thinking a couple days ago when she went to the white house and said do you want to pull my nomination back to be the next cia director even though i'm acting director and been in the agency since 1985 and made some of the toughest decisions anybody can make in a very laud tore way. i'm going to pull my application. i don't want to be ronny jackson. i'm a little concerned about the political attacks on me mainly because of my role in enhanced interrogation. steve: sounds as if sarah huckabee sanders and martin short drove out to the cia and talked her out of it. wednesday is the big day get a grilling from the senate intel. it's all going to be about what happened regarding the washing. keep in mind, whatever she did when she was in power at that point, she was doing it as a directive and all within the law. ainsley: doing what she was told to do? this is tough, because, good
3:09 am
people are starting to pull their names or being asked if they can pull their names. they are worried about being grilled. they are worried about their cia reputation in her case. is she qualified? steve: absolutely. ainsley: we have all heard she is. we will find out. we will be watching on wednesday and give you a report. brian: 32-year career. if she can just explain what she was doing. if she can double down and say i was proud of what i accomplished whether it was black sites interrogation. i dare anyone to sit in my shoes and accomplish what i have done. tell us everything that you were able to pick up because in jose rodriguez book. it's in jim mitchell's book. all the attacks stop. green lighted during her 32 year career. ainsley: first female. she 8 be the first female cia director. patriarchy cool. steve: hearing is on wednesday. we have told you for years

3:11 am
i'm going to look at another school. ainsley: your kids need to use another last name. brian: which they are already using. use their first name like cher. steve: if you are curious, there are outliers according to. this thomas aquinas college, 33 full-time faculty, every one of them identifies as a republican. brian: my problem is i didn't like their coach because i was looking at thomas acombine nance college. ainsley: you just outed the coach? brian: yes. we didn't know which sport. ainsley: i think we know which one is your favorite. ainsley: i want to see a list of the republican colleges. brian: we will get that you flier and index card in a moment. ainsley: if about 16 years. steve: meanwhile, it's 6:11 in new york city. jillian joins us on monday morning with a fox news alert in florida. jillian: we are following breaking news. get you caught up on that. a florida sheriff's deputy fighting for his life after being shot in the head. deputy william gentry responding to a call about a

3:18 am
rudy giuliani doubling down. no questions about that from george stephanopoulos. he doubled down will rudy on calls to end the special counsel's probe as the federal judge deal as blow to mueller's case. it's stunning. fox news contributor and former republican congressman jason chaffetz served on the oversight committee where he was chairman of the reform committee. congressman, how big a deal is this? >> it's a real big deal because look, the improbable election of donald trump is not probable cause to pursue him. they have got to follow evidence. they have got to follow, you know, the truth the question is what started this initial probe? and it's become so far and so wide for judge ellis to push back on this and say show us the scope memo? they have got to provide that. they won't provide it to congress, but they have got to provide it to the judge. brian: in layman's term tell
3:19 am
me what you are i don't mandate is. what did rod rosenstein tell you what to do. not going to give it to you. going to give it to you but redact it. he said you are not going to redact it give it to me. come back with the scope memo. something else happened on friday and ruled on saturday. you know that russian troll farm where they hit indictments. i guess they didn't think people were going to fight back. one was concord management consulting, when they started fighting back mueller's team asked for delay. the judge said no i'm not going to give you a delay. just present your case. they are getting push back finally and not from a pundit on this channel. >> look, they're filing charges and then they come up to their hearing and they say well, we're not ready yet. that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to the average person. and judge ellis, i would love the fact that he is pushing back. you don't get unfettered access to go serve everywhere in every place.
3:20 am
you pursue truth and justice but do that through facts and evidence and let that be where you go hey let's go donald trump this is your life. let's go look at every single aspect. you have to have probable cause. brian: and chairman, finally, that's what leads most legal experts to say there is no way the president should sit with mueller. and, if pushed, he shouldn't, you know, if subpoenaed, he still shouldn't show. let the courts deal with it. now you understand. >> yeah, look. i think most people think that but i think donald trump also does things differently than anybody else. in his heart of hearts he wants to sit down and explain why he doesn't believe there is any sort of collusion whatsoever. brian: chairman, thanks so much for getting up with us. >> thanks, good morning. brian: coming up straight ahead, facebook just unveiled a new feature helping terrorists become friends. isn't that wonderful? and no one saw president trump coming, so what did

promised hope for the forgotten men and women of the united states. >> the forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. >> everyone is listening to you now. you came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before. steve: in their brand new book, the great revolt, inside the populist coalition. the rise into the donald trump and why voters love him. co-authors selena zito and brad todd join us live in the studio. >> good morning. >> good morning. steve: the experts got the whole election wrong in 2016 and they continue to get it wrong regarding who voted for him. >> that's really important. there is this movement going on. and we're still not listening to what it is saying to us. and that's sort of the important part of this book.
3:26 am
is that it takes readers not only reminds them who these voters are and the different architects that make up the coalition. but how they are impacting the country and the world beyond the ballot box. steve: sure. brad, when you look at the people who voted for donald trump, now president trump, what the experts got wrong is they didn't understand why the people in the rust belt counties, who voted for barack obama, why they would ever vote for the republican donald trump. but they did. >> no question. you know, when bill clinton won re-election in the 1990s, he won 1500 counties. when hillary clinton won the popular vote she did so winning less than 500 counties. a lot of these places if you look at ohio and wisconsin and pennsylvania are places where dozens of counties flipped from obama in 2012 to donald trump in 2016. steve: all right, in your book, have you got different names for some of the demographic groups. for instance, rough rebounders, king cyrus
3:27 am
evangelicals. reporter reliables. let's start at the top. rough rebounders who are they? >> those are the voters who have had a set back in life, either whether it's a tragedy in the family, an economic set back that lost their job, and those were the voters that went to donald trump pretty darn quickly. because they saw in him someone who made a come back. and someone who was able to land on their feet and they just rallied around him very quickly. steve: king cyrus evangelicals? >> a lot of people have noted that evangelical supported trump. but that started even in the primaries. it really was a very pragmatic vote. they didn't find a lot in sort of personal background in common with donald trump, but they found shared priorities. steve: reporterotary reliables. >> regular republicans who lived in suburban counties that if they lived in counties that where everyone
3:28 am
was like them. they had the same college education. they didn't vote for trump but if they lived in counties where there was a mixed economic situation, they went for trump and they went for trump strong along with the uncolleged educated voters. steve: that's a look back. what's going on right now if you watch all the other channels, you know they are probably right now doing a bulletin on stormy daniels. how much does stormy daniels and that saga play into the loyalty that these people invested in donald trump? >> well, we didn't hear stories about scandal on the road and talking to trump voters in the rust belt. steve: do they care? >> they tend to think this is about them not about the soap operas going on in washington and new york. if you didn't see this election coming, we hope this is the book for you. if you didn't see what's happened with dick's sporting goods and some of the other commercial brands made bad decisions regarding this coalition in the last year, we think this book is for you, too. you might learn something. steve: you watch the other
3:29 am
channels and see people on this channel as well who say look, the people who voted for donald trump in 2016, they got an --ful. they have had it up to here with him. they are going to flip. do you buy that. >> i haven't seen wholesale evidence of that if anything, i have seen strengthening and more of a coalescing around him. donald trump was the result of this election it wasn't the cause. this is the first book that actually takes a look at the people who put him into office and what they're going to do next. steve: excellent. that's what we all want to know. the book is terrific. it's called the great revolt inside the popular coalition american politics. in god we trust now under attack now by some democrats. >> i'm wondering if senator hall would feel the same if students walked in and instead of the word god they al lanchts i don't like that

3:34 am
former nypd officer and secret service agent hosted the dan bongino show. you had senator dan hall and the one you saw there said it was offensive senator john marty in the state of minnesota. they are mad because in god we trust is now going to be well, there is a republican senator who wants -- who sponsored legislation to put in god we trust back in the schools. these two democrats. steve: ultimately. ainsley: we are offended by it we don't each want it in our money. >> i think in the stupid olympics of comments, these guys get the gold. they can share it, actually. we'll have two of them on the medal stands up there getting the gold medals in these dopey olympics. i don't get it. i mean that usually i have a good grasp on the stupidity of the radical left. let me be clear. i'm not talking about all democrats. my church is full of democrats who love their god and love their country. the radical far left clearly does not want competition with the government. so, they are in this never
3:35 am
ending battle against religion and god. and i just don't understand what they think they are getting. do they think people out there, church-goers, people who love their god and religion are going to take this lying down? i don't understand. of course they are going to fight back at the election booth and ideologically. this is absurd strategy. steve: dan, what do you mean they don't want to have the competition from the church? >> here's -- if you are a far left radical, you need people to be surgically attached to the government for their money, for their healthcare, for their kid's education. you know, someone said to me once, there is no power in yes for the government. meaning the government has to be able to tell people no -- and that way can you come to them for permission. they don't want competition. the right granted by god to defend yourself and life and liberty and happiness. they don't want that. they have to detach from you
3:36 am
god at every opportunity, hence this never ending battle against religion. this is going to blow up on them if it hasn't already big time though. ainsley: just to clarify, senator john marty and senator dan hall the republican who wants this in our schools. brian: let's move on to another thing. same guy, okay, same issue. nothing to do with the game itself. let's talk about what happens before the game. talk about the nfl and the kneeling policy. it hurt business and ratings and caused a national dialogue and the president has been right behind it he has been offended by it like a lot of us. the nfl has decided to leave it up to the individual 30 plus teams in the league to decide it on their own national anthem policy. i don't mind this. i feel as though these free agents, if you go to the patriots you are standarding. got to san francisco 49ers. you do whatever you want. when you figure out what team you want to be drafted on, you don't want to go to
3:37 am
that team, go to another team. i don't have a problem with, this do you? >> i don't have a problem with it at all. if i was an nfl owner. you talk about really silly business decisions. if there were a book like how to destroy your business in 12 simple steps, step number one would be you know, watch what the nfl allowing people to kneel on the field. i would fire every one of these guys? is there going to be blow back from the radical far left? of course, there is blow back for everything. there is a couple kids in mommy's bamplet with their twitter making them seem like they are more important than they are. the real americans out there that watch the nfl, that love the sport, i mean guys like me that don't watch it anymore were deeply offended by. this if they fired every single one of these guys they might get their audience back. i like the decision. i will tell you, i was at the nra convention in dallas, you would be surprised, brian, maybe you wouldn't. i spoke to thousands of people this weekend, and the nfl is still a big issue
3:38 am
with them. and i don't mean it in a good way. they were really upset. steve: it's not a decision. they are punting on it we don't want to decide. everybody else figure it out. brian: do you know why? because the union is standing in heir way and the nfl can't even pretend as if they are making the final decision on park avenue. steve: negotiate. brian: the nba did. but the nfl just can't work this out. it's unbelievable. steve: all right, dan. thank you for joining us today from palm city in the beautiful state of florida. thank you, sir. >> you got it. ainsley: hand it over to jillian who has headlines for you? jillian: that's right. good monday morning to you and to you at home as well. news we are following. urgent manhunt intensifying for whoever stabbed a guardsman in road rage. driver killing 24-year-old corey harter and leaving him for dead after a fight on mars highway. his family now pleading for answers. >> he did a tour over in iraq, and he was in qatar.

3:46 am
>> good morning. ainsley: is your reaction doug jones 4700. conor lamb $3,006. the limit is 2700. what's your reaction? >> well it, seems clear what from what we know that rose broke the law and broke the law five times. so it's in a sense an egregious violation. now, what makes it particularly sneaky on her part is that she used four different names and five different addresses. so it seems clear that she knew what she was doing and she was trying to cover her tracks. now, normally if these offenses occur a single time particularly when there is no corruption involved, they don't prosecute them. but they do prosecute repeat offenders. it seems clear that rosy is in this sense a repeat oden.
3:47 am
ainsley: they did convict you did this one time a fifth of the amount that rosie did provisionally. had you to pay $30,000. you gave 20,000 to do so this new york senator wendy long. i'm going to read you rosie's response. she said they should have known. i was not choosing it to overdonate. in 2700 is the cut-off. candidates should refund the money. i donate assuming they don't accept what's over the limit. we are supposed to know the law and you can't blame someone else when you do something wrong. but then when i thought about you giving 20,000, did you not know the rules? did you not know that the limit was 2700? >> here's the thing. in rosie's case she seems to be habitual giver to campaigns because she is giving to multiple campaigns. in my case it was a college friend of mine running. i had never made a political contribution before. i had no intent to break the
3:48 am
law. in either case, the point is that you exceed the campaign finance limit, and the law is the law. whether you actually know it or not. i think in my case, a congressional oversight committee has my file. and very clearly red flags me as a conservative who made a movie critical of the obama administration. so the fbi, which uncovered this was clearly signaling to obama and to the holder justice department hey, this guy is a political enemy, let's prosecute him. so, what's interesting is that my case is quite clearly a political hit. what's going to happen to rosie is going to be a very interesting question of political equity. remember, in justice, it's not just a matter that you break the law. it's a matter whether other people who broke the law who are in a similar situation get similar treatment. ainsley: yeah. it would not be fair if she didn't have to serve the same amount of time that you did if not more she did it five times. if she actually is convicted of this. thanks so much, dinesh;

4:03 am
district judge he said mr. mueller, where did you get the authority to indict paul manafort on something that went back to 2005? then there was another u.s. district judge by the name of dabney who denied a prosecutor to put off a schedule arrangement for wednesday and that's the case -- remember when mueller's team indicted about a dozen russians and three different companies for the russian bot farm in the government figured well, none of those people are going to show up for court. let's go ahead and sue them. well, three of them or rather two attorneys representing one of the three companies, went before the judge and said okay, we're going to represent this company. concord management. and they go okay. what do you want? we want all the evidence they have got. we want to see what they have got. now mueller's team is going well, we can't show them the evidence. that's not how we roll, yo. brian: so they said we like to delay it and dabne

frederick. produce what you are supposed to produce. let's not put black marks over it read something comprehensivable. ainsley: this the is transcript from judge ellis the original judge you were talking about. it's the united states of america vs. paul manafort. they go in and raid his house and find out his tax returns years ago, there were some things that were in there that he didn't disclose. putting money in foreign governments. but, this judge, judge ellis says you're just trying to squeeze this guy so that he will tell you something about the president. he said he eris rates mueller's team. just read the first 10 pages. it's pretty easy reading. he goes after manafort. because you are going after manafort, talking about mueller. you are trying to force him to sing. you are squeezing him. can you tighten the screws and they will begin to provide information on what you are really interested in. brian: tom barack is maybe the president's chief confidante and great friend. he has been questioned by the mueller probe. do you know who brought in
4:05 am
manafort? tom barack. a guy work for free do you want to take him in the president said i'm losing these delegates to ted cruz. even though i won the primary is he winning over my delegates. manafort will work for free. he wants to get back to america. everything dried up over there since the ukrainian government went anti-russian. is he looking to come over here and reestablish himself. that casual conversation turned into manafort which turned into maybe the bulk of the collusion case which may not exist. especially if you listen to what the judge says jason chaffetz the house oversight and government reform committee says look, the judge is pushing back. mueller is not unfettered. where is the probable cause? >> the improbable election of donald trump is not probable cause to pursue him. the question is what is it that started this initial probe and it's become so far
4:06 am
and so wise for judge ellis to push back on this and say, show us the scope memo, i love the fact that he is pushing ball. you don't get unfettered access to go serve everywhere in every place. you pursue truth and justice but do you that through facts and evidence. brian: i just think that someone has got to put the accelerator on robert mueller. is he dragging this out. he is having this tortured investigation. rode rosenstein has to say we don't have all day and limitless money. have you already spent over $9 million. you hired another prosecutor on friday. democratic leanings. steve: they are spending a million dollars a week on the investigation. there is an item in the "wall street journal" that says that robert mueller is either going to wrap it up pretty quickly or he is going to have to go dark because we are now entering that six months before the election, and the department of justice, with investigations it cannot
4:07 am
appear that you are influencing an election. which mr. comey apparently didn't get that memo, oh, yeah, he did get that memo, never mind. of the big question is will he wrap it up in the next month or will they go dark until after november? ainsley: today is monday, brian's birthday. this coming saturday is may 12th. that is the deadline for the president to recertify or to review that iranian nuclear deal. have you john kerry who is no longer serving not in this administration is meeting with different leaders around the country, iranian leaders, european officials. shadow diplomacy, trying to negotiate your enemies to undermine our president, trying to find a way to continue to be a part of this iranian nuclear deal, because the president has said he is not sure he is going to continue. brian: use the sanction relief in order to bolster up activities throughout the region. as you see they were able to do in syria. they basically took the
4:08 am
country over. basically able to finance hezbollah. lined the whole lebanese-israeli border with rockets and missiles. they have invigorated the sunni nations in building up their defense to counter this new economic power, which is iran, because the sanctions relief. what they did do is stop spinning centrifuges. where there are cameras so, far we haven't seen many people breeching this deal. for the most part the senate didn't approve this deal. the house didn't approve this deal. therefore, it's not a treaty, it's renewable. may 12th we will find out if president trump is going to renew it. steve: well, you remember when he was running for president. it was very clear he thought it was a stink bomb deal. we have some sound bites for you. president trump a couple days ago plus a congressman from texas. he's the chairman of the house armed services committee. he is actually for keeping it. here's point/counter point. >> we are signing that horrible deal and they are
4:09 am
marching in the streets saying death to america. i said who signed the deal when they are marching saying death to america? >> what happens next if the u.s. pulls out? secretary mattis talked about the inspectors that are in there. does iran kick those enemiers out so that we lose what visibility we have there? the europeans are not going to reimpose sanctions, so where does that leave us and iran? so, i'm not necessarily opposed to sticking with this deal never, but you need to have a clearer idea about next steps. steve: that's a big question about what comes next. ainsley to your earlier point, to have the former secretary of state, john kerry, running around the world trying to save something while our president ultimately it is his decision, some have suggested isn't he breaking the logan act which is delicious irony given the fact that so many people said members of the trump transition team did just that. ainsley: we don't care what
4:10 am
the trump administration wants or what the americans people voted for him want. we don't care about the deplorables. we will go behind americans back and do this. brian: there might be a third way. the third way might be since the better has been enjoying better relationships of france than any other president of late, macron. and if the german chancellor merkel also was here pushing for the same thing. boris johnson today, the foreign minister of britain pushing for the same thing say, okay, we will give to you with more months. at which time, european leaders, you give us that overlay that is going to eliminate ballistic missiles, get rid of the sun set that will allow these inspectors to go away after 10 years. give you two months to come up with an overlay for this. and then maybe we can talk. and let -- that might be the third way, because it would show i'm listening to my allies even though you are dug in. you are not giving, in you are listening, which i think there is nothing wrong with that's not bad leadership u. steve: look, of the president ran on getting rid of it. joe lieberman over the

russia investigation the lead democrats -- the lead the democrats once had ahead of the mid terms is dwindling ahead of recent polling. a "the washington post"-abc news poll saw the democratic lead fall from 12% in january to 4 in april. so what is going on? here to weigh in former white house press secretary fox news contributor ari fleischer. ari, is it russia, russia, russia? >> russia, russia, russia is going to be a problem, problem, problem for the democrats unless mueller has got the goods. if mueller doesn't, the democrats are the one trick pony and that pony ain't riding anymore. that's what happens when you investigate everything into scandal. steve: ultimately, the decision people are going to have in november who did something for me? was it the republicans who did the tax cut which the democrats regard as crumbs on the way to talking more about russia, russia, russia. >> and it's not only that. it's how well the economy is doing. the fact we have 3.9% unemployment. the president is wise to keep banging on the fact
4:19 am
that african-american hispanic unemployment all-time low. can he actually make up good numbers with those demographic groups. what's the most important nuclear out there, the president's groofl was at 58% in december and now down to 58% this morning. if that number gets below 50. that is huge for republicans running for re-election because that takes a lot of the energy away from the democrats who can't stand donald trump and that's what drove a lot of the turnout for the democrats in the special elections. steve: it will be interesting to see what sort of message the democrats do coalesce around as you get a little closer because right now it's a little uneven. but, you know, you look at the conventional wisdom. the smart man and women down in washington were going when donald trump talked about the tariffs and things like that, you can't do that. but, it's the little guy. it's the forgotten american who is going they are sitting on their couch right now going damn right! >> do you know how else you know that's true? while much of the press only quoted republicans who
4:20 am
opposed tariffs. they never quoted the many democrats that supported tariffs. now i have never been raised to believe in tariffs? but is he taking on china. that's the bigger picture that donald trump deserves credit for. here's the problem that democrats have with their message. right now, outside of the mueller investigation, democrats' only message is government-run healthcare. higher taxes and donald trump committed treason. that's their policy platform. it's not a very strong one. steve: but, there are some people who subscribe to that perfectly. >> some people do. and that will be the liberal wing that pushes the party left in the 2019-2020 primaries. the only issue they have is energy against donald trump. it's the intensity of opposition. steve: plus most of the mainstream media beating the drum. >> that helps the democrats sometimes. steve: i think you knew about that. ari fleischer, thank you for joining us live. >> thank you. steve: medical miracle a teenager claimed brain dead consciousness one day after his parents agree to donate

out and it was hard for you. how many months were you sitting there in the bullpen. >> since september. i have to say it's so much easier and this is really a trump phenomenon. it's so much easier to deal with washington when you are not in washington. when you are not seeing political people at your church, at the grocery store, your kid's school, whatever. that pressure of being in that fake place, this highly partisan place that's not really reality that eats people up. i live in southern california. i wasn't a part of that i also saw the donald trump phenomenophenomenon auto far whn they didn't. that place clouds judgment pretty fast. brian: you are watching the president work with angela merkel. forget about pressure. how did you notice president trump in action? >> i wish every american could seat way donald trump negotiates. i have waited a long time to work for a president who is focused on the american people. he is a great negotiator and
4:26 am
she, angela merkel realizes that. they had a great give and take. at the end of very tough negotiations we have some difficult issues with germany but we're totally on the same side. i was telling the vice president that if you have ever worked at the united nations you quickly realize that the united states and germany are on the same page. we have a lot of the same shared values, human rights, liberty, democracy. so, right after the tough negotiations, you see the president of the united states take the chancellor up to the personal residence, give her a tour. she had never seen upstairs. brian: lincoln bedroom and everything. >> seen the whole thing and she had never seen it quite phenomenal. brian: nato and not spend your 2%. you are doing great. fantastic. fun way to do it. 127 other nominees. without controversy, just waiting in the wings because democrats want to get their

4:28 am
nomination? >> it is very important. this is about politics. this is nothing more than them trying to undermine this process. she is very qualified. he has risen up the ranks. i was just out at the cia. they are excited to have her. they want somebody -- i bucked the halls and i saw the photograph of the cia directors. they are all white males and now we have a woman who is going to be able to look at the cia in a very different way. this is something that the democrats have told us that they celebrate. i would like to see them give a chance to give a vote and confirm her. brian: has to do at a time to produce some results. don't retend like you -- >> president's policies. brian: that's it. iran deal on may 12th. you will be in europe in germany when this happens.
4:29 am
france, boris johnson, i'm going to talk to him in an hour. he wants us to stay in it. what should we do. >> regardless what you call it, the iran deal needs to be fixed. it needs to be better and different policies. whether you call it fixing it or getting out of it i'm going to leave it to the washington folks who do this to figure out what we call it and where we go. but at the end of the day, brian, we have all known that this deal is weak. that it's an unacceptable deal. we're not being able to go on military bases any time, anywhere that's fundamental because iranians have lied and put programs on military bases. i said in the security council, the reasonable why there were sanctions on iranians because we gave the evidence to the security council, the russians and the chinese back then said, yeah, they are lying. let's put sanctions on them. we know we have a unified counsel when they look at the facts. like they have done in the past. so i think it's a very serious problem that we say we have got to get
4:30 am

of interest. brian: what he is referring to what happened on friday, judge t.s. eliot, that the judge is referring to. this judge, a reagan employee, looked at the 18 county indictment, manafort lawyers argued that the hearing in lex are far head of the field of the investigating russian meddling. you're looking at something in 2006. they didn't even know each other at the time that is a good point. that is what the judge pointed out. they don't have a retort. they have to come back with an explanation. if it is okay to say michael cohen's problem belongs in the southern district of new york, whatever it is, we need to raid four locations, nothing to do with manafort, the mueller case. so why is the manafort case part of the mueller probe because has nothing to do with the president? steve: so this judge ellis says, hey, real simple. show me the scope memo.
5:04 am
what that does it spells out the scope of the mueller investigation. but the department of justice said, no, judge, that is a big secret. judge saying that is essentially bs you have got to show it to me. there is another judge, regarding, remember you heard about a dozen russians who were indicted for the troll farm? daphne frederick, that u.s. judge said the prosecutors put off scheduled arguement for concord management, one of three companies is named in it as a bot farm, they want to go to trial but they want to seat evidence the government has got. the government is going, we ain't showing anybody evidence. looks if the legal system is pushing back against the mueller probe which looks like might be going a little out of the line. melissa: it is interesting what judge ellis said. here is the transcript. read it, pretty simple. get through the first 10 pages
5:05 am
they're going after manafort because they want to force him to sing about the president. they want to squeeze him. the judge says, you get, you get to tighten the screws and then they will begin to provide information and what you're really interested in. you're not really interested in manafort. you're just trying to go after the president. brian: i don't want to get too far afield, michael flynn situation, james comey reportedly denied, that mike flynn, to their assessment he did not knowingly not tell the truth about any back channel to russia. so they never felt when they questioned him that he was lying to them. steve: there was some sort of a trap. he fell through, looks like he didn't give accurate information. jason chaffetz says, the judges are pushing back because there is no probable cause and mueller is in trouble. >> the improbable election of donald trump is not probable cause to pursue him. the question is, what is it that started this initial probe?
5:06 am
and it has become so far and so wide for judge ellis to push back on this say, show us the scope memo? i love the fact he is pushing back. you don't get unfettered access everywhere, every place. you pursue the truth pursue justice, but you do that through facts and evidence. steve: and it seem in the "wall street journal" mueller, given fact we're six months away from the general election or mueller will have so wrap up the election, or it will have to go dark. it is a justice department policy they do not want to appear they're impacting the u.s. election despite what happened. melissa: rudy giuliani was on the show. i'm sure you watched. he said this is just a trap. that is why he doesn't want the president to testify. then george stephanopoulos presses him and says if it, tell them the truth why does he care, not a trap?

5:16 am
withdrawing. here to explain british foreign secretary boris johnson. mr. secretary, make your case by staying in this deal, that you even told us is flawed. >> it is. of course the president is right to see flaws in it. he set a very reasonable challenge to the world. look, iran is behaving badly. iran has a tendency to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles. we have to push back what iran is doing in the region. we have to be tougher on iran. we have to fix the flaws in the deal. one of the most important is this sunset clause which means that after 2025 it allows, the current deal allows to go forward fast with enrichment programs, which could lead to a nuclear weapon. now, no sanctions go back on. we need to find a way of fixing that and the president has been right to call attention to it. but you can't do that without just throwing the baby out with the bath water.

>> yes. brian: you want in, not you, they went into this deal on a false premise. that is what the president -- >> not quite, if i may say, i saw what happened. i saw benjamin netanyahu's excellent presentation that related to the iranian program after 2003. that is why it was a good idea to get them to do this deal and not to have nuclear weapons. by the way we're not just trusting, i mean -- brian: but you're not going to military bases. but you're not going to military bases. you have cameras on military base. >> there have been 400 inspections over last couple years. brian: you call ahead of time, don't you? >> what they have done is, it international atomic energy agency has confirmed, that iran is in compliance. they haven't been rushing for a nuke. let me remind you, before the deal was done, before the deal was done, they could have had a nuke and they were massively enriching uranium. brian: mr. secretary, i want to

5:26 am

5:27 am
not welcoming. i oppose it as christian on behalf of the 79% who do believe in a god i don't think it is appropriate for government to be choosing the terminology, the words, how and where we're pushing things. to me again as i said the motto is not what is offense sieve. the fact government and politic are sanctioning. it doesn't promote religion or welcoming to the schools or anywhere else. melissa: what is your opinion. >> democrats abandoned people of faith in this country and large percentage of their voting base. look back at the 2012 democratic convention, they booed god. they tried to add god in the platform at democratic convention. this was in charlotte. in charlotte we recently saw the funeral service for billy graham. billy graham spoke at bill clinton's inauguration. look how far the democratic

go ahead. melissa: how do you explain it? i think when people hear the story, we're taking god out of so much of our country. our country was founded on this. what is wrong with goodness, forgiveness, treat your neighbor as yourself? why do you want to take it out? >> that is exactly i want to treat our neighbors as ourselves. be welcoming to all people, regardless whether they have religious faith or not. that is what we it a to be doing. melissa: how can you tell them about god and god's mercy? >> let me finish. if you want an established church, norwegian, scandinavian governments have official religion. everybody is member of it but nobody goes to church or anything. if you want to promote religion, let people promote it, let churches, families promote it on their own. it is not government. people who shea they hate government should not want government to be sanctioning religious terminology, certain religious mottoes. that is not what government should be doing. government should be staying out of religion. that is the whole point of the first amendment.

5:37 am
things? >> i'm from california. the way the gas went up fastest the democrats raised taxes on it. we're actually in california we submitted an initiative to repeal that gasoline tax. actually lower the price for individuals, just like we did in the tax -- look what we did in the tax code. 48 of the 50 states now have lower elect call bill because they passed on the tax savings. this is what we were able to do. america is about to become energy independent, much because of what we've been able to do repealing that regulatory world and let people go out, usability to find oil and gas, maybe us energy independent, at same time with wind and solar. melissa: congressman, there are four primaries tomorrow. how confident are you that the republicans can keep the majority? >> i'm very confident that we can keep the majority. look, i know history plays against us, only two times since world war ii on an off presidential election the party in power having the white house actually gained seats but
