tv Fox News Night With Shannon Bream FOX News May 28, 2018 8:00pm-9:00pm PDT
those who made the ultimate sacrifice. i will be back your life 10:00 p.m. eastern time tomorrow. see you then. >> shannon: we are alive tonight and we began with a fox news alert. there is a renewed optimism a sum it may happen as the u.s. team in north korea is preparing to meet again with their counterparts. that is happening on the northern side of the dmz. we've got a live report straight ahead. plus the trump administration pushing back hard tonight on reports about on a company in need immigrant children here illegally. with that late-breaking details and on this memorial day in army troop reunites 11 years after a tragedy. together they lead a small town parade and give true meaning to honoring memorial day. you do not want to miss that story. hello and welcome to "fox news @ night." i'm shannon bream in washington. we begin tonight with north korea. as it appears president trump is back on track to meet dictator
kim jong un. new reports tonight the u.s. has halted sanctions against the rogue regime as the two sides continue talking. kristin fisher is here with details. good evening. >> there is mounting evidence that this on again off again some it may end up happening after all. in addition to the u.s. team on the ground and north korea you also have the white house holding off on implementing new sanctions as these talks continue. that's according to "the wall street journal." then there is an understatement tonight from the white house which actually describes the summit as unexpected meeting. >> president trump spent part of his memorial day on the phone with japan's prime minister shinzo abe. the white house says the two agreed to meet in person to continue close coordination in advance of the expected meeting between the united states and north korea, just two days after calling the summit off. >> i have decided to terminate the plan summit in singapore on june 12th. >> on saturday president trump did an about-face from the oval office.
>> is moving along very nicely. we are looking at june 12th in singapore, that hasn't changed. and it's moving along pretty well. so we will see what happens. >> some u.s. officials worry that with two weeks to go there's not enough time to prepare for a meeting of this magnitude but the president's personal attorney rudy giuliani argues this is all playing out perfectly. >> he canceled it and now we have kim jong un back where he was before talking about wanting to do it, meeting with the leader of south korea, so i don't want to raise expectations, but i think the president's strategy has played out really brilliantly. >> after that surprise meeting on saturday the president of south korea said north korean leader kim jong un committed to complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula which is exactly what the white house wants. many lawmakers on capitol hill including some republicans remain deeply skeptical that the north koreans will ever abandon their nuclear weapons.
>> my suspicion remains that he is going to try to get as much sanctions relief as possible without having to give up his weapons and i think it's going to be a lot of twists and turns along the way to try to get there if it's even possible. >> another potential sticking point, the south korean president said that kim jong un still isn't sure that he can trust the u.s. he continues to be concerned by comments made by the vice president and the national security advisor john bolton that perhaps the u.s. would follow the libya model and north korea. >> shannon: did raise eyebrows on all sides of this conversation. thank you very much. president obama's director of national intelligence james clapper offering rare praise for president trump's unusual diplomatic approach to his north korean counterpart. >> this is typical north korean. one step back, -- two steps forward, one step back, that's what they always do. in some ways he may have met his match or with a very unconventional president. >> shannon: let's bring in
cliff may for analysis, president of the foundation for defense of democracy. great to have you with us tonight. what do you make of former dni clappers statement that he may have met his match. >> coming from james clapper that's quite a compliment for president trump. he obviously does diplomacy unconventionally and i think what clapper is saying is maybe this is going to have an impact that we haven't had in the administration for the demonstration before that or the administration before that because we've been going back and forth not succeeding with north korea for about a quarter of a century. >> shannon: so there are a number of countries that are critical to us getting this done. we saw that the talking with prime minister abe, but when it comes to china, russia and many other countries that are not essentially enforcing the sanctions in full, what partners do we need to get on board in order to actually make something happen? >> the hardest partner and the most consequential is of course
china. china has seen north korea as an asset. it's a pitbull. it barks a lot, it bites at america's lakes. it keeps america distracted and it represents a threat to america and china is seeing that is a good thing. what has to change? china has to see north korea not as an asset but rather as a liability. that's not easy, but it's not impossible. that's going to probably require president trump putting a lot of economic pressure not just on north korea, much more than he has already, but also on china that will hurt china, it may hurt the u.s. as well but unless he shows that he is willing to do that and a couple other things we can talk about, china is not going to see this as its problem to solve. >> shannon: i know that north korea's economy among other things is very opaque. it's tough for us to get a real look at what's happening there and there are some accounts that are read today that set financially they are not doing as bad as people would think may be that they are. there is still currency flowing.
they have gotten weapons that are trading for at middle east that the unrest there actually benefits them in many ways. >> the strategy of the president has talked about with north korea -- by the way with iran as well, it's one of maximum pressure. maximum pressure means that the u.s. economy is so strong we can put such pressure on, sanctions not as sledgehammers at the side of the head that we can crush a foreign economy like north korea. we can make it crumble. so there are two questions, can we actually do that? and will be actually do that, because we haven't before. if you want to look at an analogy. very tough sanctions on iran before they came to the negotiating table. we lifted them, president obama lifted them. the economy of iran went from substantial recession into recovery and we never got another concession after that. already north korea has had about a two month respite from serious sanctions and is probably going to get as i understand it another respite between now and june 12th. i think that the president has
to put very tough sanctions on so that kim jong un looks around and says my economy could actually implode. that would be dangerous. plus the sky trump is so crazy he might even use military means. i don't want a missile on my breakfast table. >> shannon: that is very motivating for folks that think it's a real possibility. thank you so much for sharing your expertise with us to make a great to have you. despite the memorial day holiday, judging by the tweets and interviews this weekend, the rush of probe is clearly front and center for the president and his legal team. white house correspondent kevin corke is tracking the developments for us. >> shannon, mayor giuliani acknowledges that the administration is effectively trying to muddy the waters when it comes to the russia probe. basically what they are saying is this is an unfair probe from the very outset and they wanted to stop as soon as possible. this by the way as the president took to twitter to once again criticize the previous administration's handling of the ongoing russia probe. let me take you there to tell you what president trump had to say. he said listen, why didn't
president obama do something about the so-called russian meddling when he was told about it by the fbi before the election? he adds this. because he thought cook and hillary was going to win and he didn't want to upset the apple cart. he was in charge, not me. and did nothing. that tweet and made her giuliani's pushback on television are clearly part of an aggressive posture pitting the white house against the probe they think not only unfair. they think it's unsafe for the president to even be interviewe interviewed. >> the reality is we are not going to sit him down if this is a trap for perjury. and we are convinced of that. and if they don't show us these documents, we're just going to have to say no. let me emphasize, he wants to explain that he did nothing wrong. it's us, the lawyers who have to convince him that this is a trap. >> clearly made her giuliani strategy has drawn the ire of some democrats, but also from some former obama administration
officials. let me tell you what happened on the cnn panel. you may have missed it. a woman by the name of samantha, a national security analyst for cnn and work for the obama administration previously said that she is "a little disturbed when rudy giuliani and vladimir putin seem to have the same mission here. she added he was making the exact points that vladimir putin wants him to and that's really hurting us to protect our country. meanwhile, in a conversation with our colleague bill hammer over the weekend the mayor stood by his assertion that the doj and the fbi need to explain the obama administration's apparent use of an informant inside the trump campaign both during and after the 2016 election. >> everything wrong with the government spying on a candidate. the opposition party. that's a watergate, spike a. and without any warning to him and now to compound that, to make it into a criminal investigation. that's why this is a rigged
investigation. >> which ultimately could lead to an investigation of the investigation if you will. just the latest twist in the tale of the election that for some reason just won't go away. happy memorial day weekend to you. back to you. >> shannon: and do as well. kevin, thank you very much. giuliani also says the president's legal team would refuse a possible interview with special counsel robert mueller unless it can review the classified information on the origins of the russia probe including but not limited to details about the possible government informant, the one the president says has been spying on his campaign. let's bring into of our favorite legal eagles. robert barnes and former deputy assistant attorney general harry litman. great to have both of you with us tonight, gentleman. >> thank you. >> good to be here. >> shannon: let's start here. we want to play a little bit more about what rudy giuliani had to say yesterday about possibly sitting down and what he expects first. >> and if they don't show us these documents, we're just
going to have to say no. let me emphasize, he wants to explain that he did nothing wrong. it's us the lawyers who have to convince him that this is a tra trap. >> shannon: fair to say it's a trap? >> absolutely it's a trap. the entire investigation has been not about exposing any rush of collusion, but about covering up the illegal spying and lying the obama administration engaged in against an opposition political party in president trump. basically his core convictions are precisely correct. it would be a major mistake to sit down and engage in an interview with someone who is not in good faith producing information that is relative to the investigation and relative to the defense. >> shannon: how does this work when you are potentially a person of interest. we have to be careful with the language, a subject, somebody who is involved, who may get involved to ask the potential prosecutor to see the information that they build their case on? >> is that for me? >> shannon: that's for you.
>> there is not a defendant in the united states including the president of the united states who has ever been entitled to see this information. he can see it in court if there are charges. it's a completely unprecedented request. as to robert's general point about spygate or echoing rudy here, there are two problems with the spygate claim, one is the spy, the other is the gate. by no means a spy, the notion is to try to have overtones of watergate or j. edgar hoover. that is, there is no embedding of an fbi employee in the campaign. rather there is the use of a confidential informant completely routine from bank robbery to any crime when, i remind you, the fbi had received information, credible information, that russia was
planning to do a campaign to try to influence our election. >> shannon: are we talking about semantics here? people want to quibble over whether or not it somebody you don't know is contacting people, getting information to them and feeding it back to a federal agency. some people call that spying. >> that's exactly what it was. >> that semantics. semantics really matter. what spying applies as an watergate and this is why they are using it is the notion of one party actually putting an agent in with another. it's the opposite. >> shannon: doesn't matter if that person is embedded or if they are on the fringes of the campaign and have contact? >> i've done a lot of cases involving government misconduct in every single time they hid behind a confidential informant. my guess is when it comes out he will never have been identified. his main partner in his company in the u.k. is the longtime head of the am i six, which is the spy agency that formed the first dodgy dossier about getting the u.k. into the iraqi war.
clearly what he did here was infiltrate the campaign for the purposes of both spreading disinformation and for gathering information and by anybody's definition that is called spying. and because they were doing it in such a way to try to cover it up yesterday, that's the gate. that's why it spygate. >> shannon: you say that this is so unusual that no defendant would have the potential access to information. this is so different. this is a sitting president of the united states. his legal team says that if he is subpoenaed they will fight it all the way to the supreme court and you know they would. but this is a kind of negotiation here. his legal team keeps publicly saying we don't want to do it, he definitely wants to do it. he tells the cameras and every time we ask him he wants to do it because he believes he is innocent. it may sound unusual but this is a very unusual case. is it just part of the negotiations? >> i agree with that. first of all, he has been saying for months i want to do it. at this point we think maybe he doth protest too much and that in fact is trying to avoid it, but i agree that this sort of
ploy, asking for something no one should get because he's the president is really a maneuver to try to improve, sweeten the deal for when he does interview. if he goes to court, i am aware among us on the left by the way. i don't think it's cut and dry. i think mueller will win. i think trump wants to avoid going to court and this is part of the negotiation. i basically agree with you. >> shannon: we are out of time but what do you think happens if they take the subpoena fight to the supreme court? >> i think as the stories that a long time ago that the president cannot have -- be subject to a criminal grand jury process and i think with this request reveals is that it isn't president trump who has something to hide, it's bob mueller and the obama administration that has something to hide. >> shannon: we saw shall see. always great to have you. by the way, we have not confirmed any of the names that either of them would have referenced there. we have not done that yet. we will continue working on that.
newton i, virginia republican says he's not going to seek reelection to the house because he is struggling with alcoholism. in a video statement first reported by "the washington post" you could see him holding back tears as he said he's a good man but he's also an alcoholic. the news comes days after unnamed staffers told the congressman mistreated them by ordering them to personal task like walking his dog. former president george w. bush expressing regret about missing today's memorial day festivities as he remains hospitalized in maine. over the weekend the former president visited veterans for a pancake breakfast. that was before spokesman tweeted that he's going to be hospitalized for a few days citing lowbrow pressure and fatigue. he said he's not in any discomfort. president trump visits arlington cemetery in honor of veterans both living and those buried at the iconic betterment cemetery. jennifer griffin has that story. and one of president obama's former top advisors tweets out a photo showing the sad plight of children taken from their
parents as a slap at the trump administration's immigration policy. but those images, they came from -- we will separate fact from fiction. no relief in sight for the aloha state. the kilauea volcano is doing deadly gas and a missing veteran -- he's missing because he was trying to help with a massive flood in maryland that has been wreaking havoc there. on top of that with got a tropical storm rolling into the florida panhandle. we've got all the stories right after the break. ♪ spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy. everything. and that 2% cash back adds up to thousands of dollars each year... so i can keep growing my business in big leaps! what's in your wallet?

>> shannon: this is a fox news alert. the trump administration is pushing back hard late tonight on a report that thousands of illegal immigrant children were lost after crossing the border and going through government processing. the department of health and human services says it no longer has custody of the children once they are released to sponsors. "these children are a lot lost, their sponsors simply did not respond or could not be reached reached." in many cases they cannot be reached because they are themselves illegal aliens. outraged progressives shared an image of kay's children blasting the administration's policies towards young immigrants but it turns out that picture was taken in 2014 during the obama administration. let's bring a former ohio state
senate democratic minority leader capri cafaro and beverly hallberg president of the district media group. welcome to you both, good to have you with us tonight. >> shannon: let's talk about what's going on here. a number of left-leaning people put that weed out of it or we can. some of them retracted, some of them actually corrected it and admitted the year was wrong on it. it's a very heated conversation and debate. but social media is a dangerous thing. we have all learned the lesson the hard way. >> that's right. i think this is a really good lesson in the fact that we need to be very careful about what we tweet and retweet and we talk about clickbank, things that draw you in and you are not necessarily betting them and you are just emotionally reacting and putting it out there. we all have a responsibility, particularly those in the public sphere to be discerning about what we put out there in social media and the internet space because one second you put it out there and it becomes fact.
and with this particular issue and hopefully we will get into this, there are so many nuances about who is and who's wrong about the lost kids. democrats and republicans i think, neither of them are getting this argument right. >> shannon: both of them have said -- leaders on both sides of the aisle to come out and say it's got to figure this out, this is got to be resolved, this is not something -- it's nonpartisan. people should want to make sure the kids are safe and sound. i want to talk about the president. he had a lot of tweets this weekend. this is one of them. he said put pressure on the democrats to end the horrible law that separates children from their parents once they cross the border into the u.s. catch and release, lottery entry must go with it. we must continue building the wall. democrats are protecting ms-13 thugs. they try to get a number of things past on the hill. they couldn't and of course we always have to note in the senate you need democrats help because you don't have 60 republicans over there, but none
of them could seem to get it together. democrats are saying there's no law that forces these kids to be separated but if their parents are jailed, they can be jailed, it's a mess. >> i have a lot to say about this. >> i'm not sure where republicans and democrats are going to come down on this issue. this is a tough issue, but i'm glad that minors are in the focus. and the reason is even when you look at unaccompanied minors, whether they came here under the obama administration or even under the trump administration, we even had some of our elected officials mark meadows and even marco rubio came out and said sadly many of these young minors are being human traffic. they are victims of that. so i think we need to look at this very carefully because not all adults who are bringing them over here are actually members of their family, so i'm glad that the president is putting this in focus. >> shannon: we have something i want to play from the attorney general. he said earlier in may he was talking about this issue of people bringing children here, sometimes their parents, sometimes they are not. here's what he said and i will
get your reaction after this. >> if you don't want your child to be separated and don't bring them across the border illegally. it's not our fault. that somebody does that. >> shannon: quick response from you both, we will start with you. >> ultimately i hear what he is saying, but a child is a child. they are obviously leading a situation that is direct which is why they are taking all of these risks. i think that we have to remember again facts do matter and there's a lot of things that have been brought up. catch and release for example. catch and release is actually a result from a june 2001 supreme court case under george w. bush. 2005 michael chertoff said he was going to end it. it never necessarily happened that way and then there was the directed by president obama. we need to stop pointing fingers. if the kid that matter. >> shannon: quickly beverly, final word to you. >> what our lawmakers need to decide is if you are not going to change the forced a lot we
need to change it. they have the incentive to do so because we haven't followed the laws on the books. i hope that we can come to an agreement because that's the important thing, to do something legislatively. >> shannon: everybody agrees. listen, hhs is saying we can do more if you want us to. we are not equipped financially but if you want us to we are going to need more money. that requires congress. we will watch and wait. thank you both. >> thank you. >> shannon: the president paying tribute at arlington national cemetery to the nation's fallen heroes. but as jennifer griffin reports this memorial day arlington is facing a growing dilemma. >> they were generals and privates, captains and corporals of every race, color and of every creed. >> the president was joined by his cabinet secretaries and families of the fallen at arlington national cemetery to mark memorial day by laying a wreath at the tomb of the unknowns.
he welcome to the oldest living survivor of pearl harbor, 106-year-old navy veteran ray chavez and senator and world war ii veteran bob dole. >> bob, thank you for honoring us with your presence. >> recalled meeting 7-year-old kristin jacobs wearing a full marine uniform saluting his father's grave. sergeant christopher jacob served in iraq and afghanistan and was killed in a training accident six months after his son was born. under new regulations being considered by the army sergeant jacobs would not be eligible to be buried at arlington. america's iconic veteran cemetery is running out of space. the final resting place for 420,000 veterans adding 7,000 more each year. the army must weigh whether to change the burial criteria limiting it to those killed in combat or awarded the military's highest medals for heroism. >> without any type of change in eligibility and expansion, by 2041 we are going to be out of
it. >> arlington national cemetery was initially established during the civil war when a union general began burying on what was general robert e lee's family plantation overlooking washington, d.c. >> the hun country worth fighting for indeed. defense secretary james mattis gave a sense of what it means to be buried at arlington today with a quote from robert louis stevenson. >> under the wide and starry sky, dig the grave and let me live. glad did i live and gladly die and i laid me down with a will. >> but with arlington national cemetery running out of room, the nation must now decide whether to break his promise to past veterans who expected to have this be their final resting place or to limit the criteria in the future. >> shannon: jennifer griffin at the pentagon. thank you. president trump rolls back another obama era edict, this time it goes to revitalize mining towns. will it work?

from the great state of minnesota, republican congressman tom grouped, amber. tell me about the news as it relates to mining communities like you? >> northern minnesota is trump country. the first republican president to win northern minnesota. last date -- literally the last day he tried to kill two potential leases for mining opportunities in northern minnesota. they started a study to withdraw some 234,000 acres from any future exploration or potential development. this would be huge in minnesota because you are talking 5,000 potential mining jobs, not to mention the 12,000 construction jobs that you would have if someone actually proposed a mine on one of these two leases. thanks to president trump in his administration the department of the interior has announced they are renewing the two leases that president obama tried to kill.
but we still have a study that's ongoing with the service that the president needs to end. that study has been going on for 17 months. he needs to be done so that they can get to the business of exploring whether or not the great people of minnesota can mind the largest copper nickel deposit in the world. with the president has done with his administration is revitalize the opportunity for mining in minnesota. now it got to follow through. when they've got to end the study, get the lease is finalized grown not only wealth, but protect our precious minerals. if we have to go get them somewhere else, this is a national security threat. the president has done amazing thing so far. they've just got to close the loop on this and make sure that not only are the leases renewed, but the study is ended so we can get on with the business of exploration and hopefully some way develop. >> thanks for your time. pleasure. shannon, this evening there is some good news for mining communities in northern minnesota and elsewhere across the country. back to you. >> shannon: mike emanuel on the hill. thank you very much.
