3:07 am
bredesen are friends even though they are democrats and republicans. gave a lukewarm endorsement to marsha blackburn. how about i will vote for the republican. he said she is going to have a tough time. she said i'm going to take nashville values to washington. she will be on our show and we'll talk to her about that. pete: are they bringing nashville values to washington or are they with the resistance. the democrats still haven't found a nation. the president does a nice job do you want a border or borderless world. sanction area city and tax cut all the kneeling. he still draw as stark line. brian: marsha blackburn first one on the trump train. something about president trump that she liked all
3:08 am
along. one thing impressive about her. she played a major role when mitt romney had the nomination. i watched her running things at the convention while looking after her grandchildren. so you see the grand mom. you see the mom. you see the person. you see the congresswoman who is always on a mission. been strong on her values. i think she feels as though she is perfect for this spot. ainsley: talked about the economy and ms-13, that nancy loves ms-13. then he talked about the wall and said we got 1.6 billion for the wall. he said san diego, they were tired of people walking across the border and into their country. listen. >> in the end, mexico is going to pay for the wall. i'm just telling you. i'm just telling you. [cheers and applause] i don't want to cause any problems. but in the end, mexico is paying for the wall. they make all of this money and they do absolutely nothing to stop people from going through mexico from
3:09 am
honduras and all these other countries, the caravan, all of this stuff. they do nothing to help us. nothing. brian: the mexican government -- mexico is actually in a presidential race. got to look tough and opponent got to look strong. so enrique, the current president right now tweeted this out right away. president trump, no, mexico will never pay for a wall not now, not ever, sincerely mexico, all of us. here is the thing. nafta is being renegotiated. there are different fees. that's the way it's going to come out eventually when it comes to who is going to cross. pete: congress has been on be a abstinent as well.
3:10 am
jillian: people in north carolina are being told to get out as the dam teeters on the brink of failure. >> spring flooding old for the, north carolina. jillian: causing water to spill over the walls of the lake. sad news out of ellicott city, maryland. the body of edison has been found. >> today i'm announcing i will resign as governor of missouri effective friday june 1st at 5:00 p.m. jillian: he was facing impeachment after being charged with invasion of privacy stemming with an affair he had before becoming governor. that charge was dismissed. now there is now questions on if he violated campaign finance laws.
3:11 am
mike parson should be sworn in on friday. hours after cbs cancelled her show over a tweet roseanne barr. i did something undefendable. it was 2:00 in the morning. i was ambien tweeting. it was memorial day, too. i went too far and do not want to it defended. it was egregious, indefensible i made a mistake i wish i hadn't but don't defend it please. a lot of people still talking about that news from yesterday. brian: thanks, jillian. people were talking about that two networks blew out had a race all night show. i think roseanne, one of her tweets was real accurate. don't worry about me. what about the hundreds of people that worked on the show. they are all out of a job today. ainsley: she should have thought about that before she tweeted. they made the right
3:12 am
decision. no we won't defend her. will we forgive her as a christian? yes. should she have said that, absolutely not. it was offensive. pete: comments were indefensible. jillian: watch that. pete: watching the pc mob reinforce what is a double standard world we live. in showed a lot of courage putting that program on the show in the first place. they kind of ran away at first chance. folks on the left have said far worst about trump no consequence. again non-defensible won't defend what roseanne said. i'm for free speech. i don't love the mob mentality. show with high ratings. maybe an apology should be good enough sometimes. i get executives make decisions. these are private companies we live in a free world. it is what it is. ainsley: she said she was going to quit twitter tweeting last night because of ambien. she made those comments memorial day weekend and she was on ambien. brian: only thing i would
3:13 am
add is valerie jarrett great of her to accept the apology wrong of her to point at donald trump. says it comes from the top. trump bears responsibility from the racist tweet from the comedian. what does donald trump have to do with it? number one, he did call her to say thanks for depicting an american family that is pro-trump which a lot of working class families are. as far as i know, there is no link to president trump. ainsley: weigh in on this. let us know what you think at home. brian: 13 minutes after the hour. president trump railing against mueller and 13 angry democrats. next guest says they aren't just angry they are worse. steve: is bernie sanders ready to run in 2020. former campaign manager just dropped the biggest clue yet. we're going to bring it to you. ♪ ♪ i'm very proud of the fact

3:18 am
terms by holding their probe so close to the elections. does he have a point? especially because it's ongoing, we don't know when it's going to come to an end. polster for president trump's campaign adam geller. adam, so he talks about 13 angry democrats who work for robert mueller. he sells they are meddling in the mid terms because the probe is not wrapping up. and we are in the summer now. >> here's the problem. let's look at presidents, right? you started this investigation with two very partisan democrats, right? in page and strzok and talking about deputy director mccabe. so it is not really unfathomable that you can have some partisan democrats on here who do, in fact, have some skin in the game as far as the election is concerned. it's not out of the question. brian: so we don't know that partisan democrats judging by their tweets they are anti-trump. now we know that the ig report is going to come out and look at what peter strzok and lisa page, who are having an affair
3:19 am
actually doing. they played a major role in everything in this investigation. now we know this links back to london. not to get everybody confused but that's where papadopoulos is and that's where he met with the informant and that's where he met with the australian ambassador. so this is coming full circle. if the big picture, what do you think it means for the president? it used to be bad. now i get the sense that it's not all bad for the president. >> look what's happening, right? the president's job approval rating is going up. real clear average has it today something around 47, 48%. about an 8 point jump from january. brian: mueller's is going down. >> mueller's is going down. independents and republicans are both, you know, the support is plummeting for this thing. they are losing credibility because all this little pieces of information keep coming out. brian: interesting. sole here is trey gowdy yesterday saying well, on this informant, it could mean a couple of things. listen. >> it was president trump
3:20 am
himself who said, number one, i didn't collude with russia but if anyone connected with my campaign did, i want the fbi to find that out. i am even more convinced that the fbi did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got. and that it has nothing to do with donald trump. brian: because the people around him were periphery. he never even met carter page. so that's their problem, not his. >> i completely agree. and so and that is -- appears to be exactly what's going on. there is peripheral players. and, quite frankly, in the grand scheme of things. the obama justice department. the obama fbi sending in spies. not a good look for the democrats. brian: didn't help in the long run. it helped bill clinton look like he was being unjustly hit. >> it sure did. brian: maybe the same thing is happening again. >> that's right. brian: adam, thanks, fascinating. president trump warning republicans don't get

pete: we are back with a fox news alert. he yelled allahu akbar as he killed three people including two cops in belgium. he was on a 48 hour leave from prison. benjamin her man was on a police watch list. police shot and killed him during the attack. also breaking things calming down on the gaza strip after israeli fighter jets strike dozens of hamas targets. the move overnight coming after palestinians, you know, led by hamas launched their heaviest attack in four years.
3:25 am
after weeks of mass protests and violence along the gaza border. a live report from israel coming up in our next hour. anxiously? ainsley: thank you, pete. tennessee voters turning up in droves to the rally last night. president trump still had a strong warning. >> in november, we will reverse a trend. when you win the presidency, for some reason, you always end up losing the house. you get complacent. you win. and now you sit back and you relax. that's the worst thing that can happen. all of a sudden, you have another election. ainsley: who should be more worried headed into the mid terms in about six months? here to debate is g.o.p. polster justin wallen and joel pain. justin, i will start with you. democrats need to flip 23 seat. experts are saying they predict they will flip anywhere between 25 and 40
3:26 am
seats. knowing that information, it's going to be very tough. what do republicans need to do? >> this election, just like pretty much any other is about issues. it's not necessarily about personalities. i think that's one of the missteps that could happen on either the democratic or the republican side. i tend to see it a little bit more on the democratic side. i don't see the messaging or the themes quite as strong where republicans are strong is there were two huge issues last year that need to be pushed forward. one was tax reform. the other was healthcare reform. failed with healthcare reform. succeeded with tax reform. and the third issue, which is much smaller is infrastructure. if something can be done with that at least republicans can claim ownership. ownership is big right now. action is important. we need to see that in order for republicans to have a chance to buck the historical trend of mid terms. ainsley: joel, what do you think the reason is for democrats -- it looks like it's in favor of the democrats. democrats will take the house. when you have nancy pelosi saying i want to increase your taxes, i want open
3:27 am
borders and supporting ms-13 backing them, how do the democrats win with that message? >> that's a nonsense way to lay out the democratic agenda. ainsley: correct me then. how do you lay it out. >> that's not true. ainsley: that is true. she has said that. >> that's not. but we can agree to disagree. ainsley: okay. >> the president it's very interesting that he was even in tennessee last night. i have worked in politics. i worked for the former majority leader harry reid. and the idea that you are even in tennessee as a republican president what, three or four months before election day defending a seat that you should never have to defend, a state that the president won with over 60% of the vote in 2016, that shows you how weak is he in tennessee. that shows you how rutterless the republican establishment is in tennessee because the president has put them in that position. because is he failing in trump country. republicans are run away from him. marsha blackburn is going to have to cling on -- hold on for dear life to hold on to that seat. i think that's the big story from last night that the president even had to defend
3:28 am
that seat in tennessee last night. that's "the big story." ainsley: well, every president has done, this right, justin? every president goes into areas where the races are tight to try to rally the troops? >> yeah. sure. one of the funny things about what the president said last night is who is the opponent? i never heard of him. successful governor of tennessee. i mean, if the democratic party was going to pull together the right candidate for this race that's the candidate. and that's why it's tight. it's not because trump is losing support in any meaningful way for republicans. i mean, this is marsha blackburn not necessarily about trump. >> his numbers are down by 10 points. >> actually they have been contracting ever since fall. he is upside down. i mean, we're not pretending about anything. is he upside down. but they are contracting. and trump is seen as, you know, relatively independent. he is not necessarily fully tied to the republican party. this can be a good thing and it can be a bad thing.
3:29 am
at the end of the day what i said earlier still stands. it's about issues. and if blackburn owns the issues that matter to tennessee, then she will emerge victorious. ainsley: justin, joel, thanks so much for being here. >> thank you. ainsley: you are welcome. husband was deported from the united states for being illegal immigrant. but, she is not mad. >> our laws come first. our laws are just broken and need to be fixed. but i can't be mad at trump for doing his job. ainsley: can you bet the liberal media wasn't expecting that answer. tomi lahren is here to react next. will netflix become the obama network. what the streaming service just said about multi-million-dollar deal with thwith the former first family. happy birthday to wh winona jud. she is 54 years old today.

>> we're not going to be a stupid country anymore. we've stopped it. we're not going to be. [cheers and applause] and you can say what you want, but i think border security and security general is a great issue for the republican party. brian: you know what? i actually think it's beyond republicans. i think the average american wants border security. i think that's the most confusing issue on democrats. i think everybody really wants some security on the southern border. they are crazy to fight the president on the border. ainsley: you kept saying the majority of californians don't want sanctuary cities and then all these cities
3:34 am
started to vote against it let's bring in tomi lahren who lives in california. she is a fox news contributor and can weigh in on this. why is border security so important to the folks who do live in california. those who support the president? >> well, californians and other border states we understand that we're the most vulnerable when it comes to these issues. but it's not just us. we just deal with the problem more close to home. this is an american issue. as brian said, when i hear our president double down on border security, of course that's going to be a winning agenda item for this president and those who choose to support border security. what we really need to ask is why are the democrats so against it why do the democrats not believe in the integrity of our borders, our laws and protecting the american people? that's the question that needs to be asked. not why is trump doubling down. of course this president is doubling down this president believes in a secure border. brian: there is a push with nature cory gardner and moderates in the house to
3:35 am
get something done on daca before mid terms come. go with the mid terms what they have done or haven't done. what do you think about that? the president may be going there and saying giving me the 25 billion for the wall i will give you daca and go back for chain migration? go back for the lottery? do you think that benefits him or us? >> i think this president has said multiple times he is willing to compromise. what's most important not only for president trump but for the americans that voted for president trump because of his promise to build the wall is that before we start dealing with those that are already here illegally that we have border enforcement. that has to be number one. the american people have to trust that first and then we can have a bigger conversation about immigration reform. i think to do it pete meal, piecemealis a mistake. american people will stand behind him. brian: which means nothing gets done though. >> it might mean that nothing gets done immediately. but i think that there is going to be pressure on the republicans and each on the
3:36 am
democrats to do something. and not just piece by piece but have real, true immigration reform for the first time in a long time. that's what the american people want. us as voters, we have to make sure that we make that clear. and we vote on issue that. pete: democrats in resisting this president on the wall have tried to characterize his policies as inhumane when a photo surfaced of caged my grants a couple days ago. they went over the edge. john favreau former speech writer for president obama tweeted this is happening right now and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible. turns out oops these photos are from 2014 when barack obama was president. >> turns out many on the other side are not concerned with the truth so long as they can attack president trump. this was a great misstep on their part. and it just goes to show that the level of partisan politics in this country has reached such antics stream level that the truth really
3:37 am
doesn't matter anymore. have you an image, you circulate it and what the president trump calls fake news it looks pretty bad for them. moving forward i hope that as democrats and republicans we can do what's right and stand for our beliefs and not just pick the side of who we voted for or our partisan line. that's not what this country is based on. ainsley: mainstream media heard this story of husband deported back to mexico. mainstream media runs with it and says family broken up. husband sent back to mexico. this is inhumane. this is wrong. listen to the wife being interviewed and i don't think mainstream media was expecting how calm she was and her lack of animosity. listen. >> i am not upset at our government due to the fact that i am a u.s. citizen and that our laws come first. our laws are just broken and need to be fixed. but, i can't be mad at trump for doing his job because that is his job to protect us as u.s. citizens from criminals.
3:38 am
brian: oops. i never expected that answer. if you are on cnn you don't expect that answer, do you? >> of course you don't. this just goes to show that legal immigrants and even family members of immigrants expect border security there is a reason people come to this country and win the american dream. it's for the safety we promise our citizens. so legal immigrants look at our border and they want it to be secure as well. that's why they live in this country in part so they can be safe and secure. there is not doesn't believe we need immigration reform. it's hard to see families broken up like this. the fact that she appreciates our country and rule of law speaks a lot to the character of this person. brian: it's amazing, they say 70 percent of immigration reform we all agree on. 30% with the border wall and daca and the illegals here already which stops the whole process. keep the couples together those people who marry somebody from another country. all that stuff just takes
3:39 am
too long and is too costly. the line is too long for people to do it legally. but we all get hung up on the stuff we don't agree on. tomi, thanks so much. pete: thanks, tomi, appreciate it. ainsley: a lot of democrats do agree on it remember back in the day. now that president trump is in office and he wants it they don't want the wall anymore. pete: lots to talk about border security. means different things to different people. ainsley: that's true. brian: harry reid was against chain migration said how outrageous it was video of him saying that and now the whole party i guess is for it hey, jillian. jillian: good morning brian, how are you. ainsley, pete? doing all right? good to see you too. jillian: golden state killer may have kept trophies from his victims. prosecutors reveal the chilling detail during a hearing whether to. james d'angelo appeared in the courtroom located up inside a cage. he is aciewtzed of at least 12 murders and dozens of rapes. bernie sanders might be
3:40 am
eyeing another run for the white house. >> will voters get another chance to vote for bernie sanders in 2020? >> voters in vermont certainly coming up in november. nationally, you know, he is considering another run for the presidency. jillian: his campaign manager dropping that hint on us. sanders previously said he hadn't made up his mind yet but would support whoever had the best chance of defeating president trump. there you have it. netflix defending new multi-million-dollar deal with former president and first lady michelle obama. there is no political slate to the programming e does admit, quote, it's hard to argue there is not a left lean to the creative community. the obamas will be creating entertainment programming for netflix. this is amazing. incredible act of generosity by police officer and caught on camera. this cop responding to a 911 call about a homeless man in a south carolina fast food restaurant. when he gets there he actually buys the man a

tell everybody. four minutes now after the top of the hour. the president was also building up some other themes yesterday. and it's not really swaying off the tact of saying that nancy pelosi and chuck schumer both called out the president for using the term animals when it comes to ms-13. ainsley: president was talking about the wall. said he got $1.6 billion for the wall that folks in san diego, they really want it. listen to some other comments that he had last night. >> chuck and nannies. they don't want the wall. they want open borders.

is he peter strzok's boss. >> these are folks right in the middle of the hillary clinton. so-called hillary clinton email investigation. they are going to be in the middle of this report. people are expecting this report to come within the next week. his testimony likely would come after the report comes out. they would be forced to answer questions about what is in this report. again, michael horowitz has been working on this for over a year looks into whether she got special treatment and they will be asked about it. ainsley: they will be asked about all of this on june 5th. we're going to try to work all this out and figure out where they fall. you were talking during the commercial break. we call it the deep state family tree. i want to know how they are involved. what they knew. what they knew about hillary clinton's email and collusion. and where they fall in that deep state family tree. brian: one the text messages refer peter strzok is out there now beginning to take shape and got me very intrigued. prestrep went to london russian meddling.
4:09 am
question to fox news whether the trip was connected. well, let me see. what was happening in london in the cambridge professor. what was happening in london? papadopoulos was there meeting with that professor. what else was happening in london in the ambassador to australia was there that got in that drunken conversation with papadopoulos. what else was happening? carter page spoke in that area. so, maybe peter strzok's boss was laying the groundwork for the investigation not yet launched. but those are the questions that are going to be answering -- asking. steve: maybe it's such a high level investigation that a guy that high goes himself as opposed to someone else. brian: they also looked at this investigation, trey gowdy did and said i'm looking at this informant and the role the informant played. i'm seeing these people they are focusing on, sam clovis, papadopoulos and carter page. i'm saying to myself in one way i don't mind that the fbi did. this in the other, the president should feel good about it listen. >> it was president trump himself who said, number one, i didn't collude with russia but if anyone connected with my campaign
4:10 am
did, i want the fbi to find that out. i am even more convinced that the fbi did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got. and that it has nothing to do with donald trump. pete: an interesting take that, hey, trump wanted it to be found and if it was there and they found nothing ultimately exexonerates them. brian: not corey lewandowski and david bossie, these are tangential players. he still has yet to meet carter page. mr. trump, i know you are busy trying to win a nomination. i need to speak to you because the russians are trying to meddle in the election we have reports of people on your foreign policy council that are meeting. all you have to do is say that to him. you could have avoided all of this. president trump would be personally responsible for saying hey, wait a second. i was warned and didn't do anything. ainsley: makes him look fishy for not being upfront and honest from the get-go.

4:19 am
need. brian: do you know a lot of these democrats won their primaries by saying single pair. these governors in california are promising single pair in your state. >> do you know a single pair they passed a bill out of the senate who is going to be double the cost for one year for how much california brings in totally. they just don't care. and it doesn't help the individual for better healthcare. it doesn't provide more choice. and it doesn't build the relationship between the doctor and the patient. brian: let's talk about immigration. a lot of moderates are standing up saying i have got to get something done. even if it means i'm going to go with democrats because we have to get daca done. what have you done to push back as a leader? >> well, i never believe in what is called a discharged petition. viewers have to understand what that is. if you are go and sign that which all the democrats will and just a few republicans. it turns the floor over to nancy pelosi. we have been in the room working together, conservatives, moderates, and others. to be able to put an immigration plan together. that protects our border, secures the border.

author of that book right there called "shear madness" next to me we have attorney jesse weber. thank you all for being with us. >> thank you. >> we will start with you because you asp drug addict. you are this doj prosecutor. doj is now releasing this information about pharma. and then you became a drug addict. so what is the problem with oxycontin? how do you get addicted to it? you had such a successful career. >> thank you. so oxycontin is heroin in a pill. i have been on a number of times with you guys. once you start down that road, the withdrawal symptoms when they run out are so severe that you will turn to practically anything to feel better. yeah, i lost my career. you know, i have rebounded but i did rob six banks to get money. but also because i was so despondent because, you know, addiction is a house of cards. i always say that and it's just very difficult.
4:27 am
the doctor and i were talking. you and i were talking. and doesn't read resumes. i have worked with addiction campuses. i kept people into treatment programs. i get calls every day, ainsley, saying my son is addicted. my daughter is addicted. or my son overdosed. my loved one overdosed every day. but we still -- as you were saying. treat this medically. and that's what we have to do. ainsley: dr., what do we need to do to treat it medically. >> i see this every day. we know that the medical community has a role in this. but we also know that the medical community can have a role in saving this. look, we have the technology to treat addiction. we can treat it well. especially for opioid use disorders. f.d.a. approved interventions, medications, things like that. what we need to do more than anything else at this point is really train doctors and clinicians early this anywhere year. residency training in medical school to learn how
4:28 am
to screen people not unlike other chronic conditions. diabetes, cancer, addictions so when patients present for care, they are showing up in emergency rooms, pain clinics and primary care offices. they can get the proper assessment and receive a different course of treatment. ainsley: the president said last night in his speech, we are giving $6 billion towards the opioid problem. did you go into the hospital with a broken arm under a come out a drug addict. jesse, from an attorney's perspective, what does this mean for all the people who are suing this company. the company it was proven has lied? >> it's not just that they knew about it and didn't do anything. they knew about it and still aggressively marketed it as not addictive drug. the problem like you said is lawsuits being filed by counties, states, native american tribes. criminal investigations from different states. this doj report will be used by all of them. what i found most startling from this was trying to make sense why this settled back in 2007. so there was a criminal investigation into purdue, the three top executives
4:29 am
face fines, community service. 400 hours of community service. would that have had an effect on the opioid crisis today? i can't say hindsight is 2020. i would have liked to nobody that back in the day and not play catchup. ainsley: we did reach out to purdue pharma company, they did not get back to us. thank you for being here. >> thank you. ainsley: you are welcome. all colleges lean left. one ivy league is getting called out for it and president trump firing up the crowd down in nashville. >> we're not making apologies. we're not making excuses. we're respected again as a country.

4:45 am
thought secretary of state pompeo's speech about iran was equally aimed at north korea. it is a very tough speech. and says to the iranians here are the bad things that can happen to you if you don't fall in line. well, in a sense, if you are kim jong un and you are looking at that speech, you are thinking oh yeah, that could apply to me, too. i think the president so far has basically done pretty good job. the north koreans for years got a deal, took the money and broke their word. we will keep all the sanctions on until we can verify that you are doing the things that need to be done. frankly the south koreans are begging the north koreans to cut a deal. south koreas are very worried about the dangers of
4:46 am
a real war dangerous for south korea. they are drawing kim jong un. you will notice he went for a surprise summit meeting over the weekend with the president of south korea. sent back the word oh, yeah. i really do want to meet, sorry you felt bad about it. and, they have teams now working in singapore, they apparently have a team meeting meeting in new york. not going to be a magic moment kim jong un decides to give up all of his nuclear weapons in return for a visit to mar-a-lago or a promise by trump to open up three golf courses. i mean these guys are tough. they spent three generations going through terrible circumstances trying to build these weapons. and it's going to be pretty tough getting them to give them up. brian: so it's june 12th happens, it's only going to be the start. they are not going to walk out with a deal. i think that's always been the mind set -- should be the mind set going in,
4:47 am
correct? thmind set. toughen them unless they are being reasonable. reagan used to say old russian proverb trust but verify. these guys have such a terrible record. the phrase is mistrust and verify, verify, verify. because you just have to assume that their track record is such they are going to try to get out of doing anything real. pete: has been under siege at home. as you often do you dissected what he is facing in the mueller probe. you say it's not one scandal. it's actually five scandals. dissect that for us. will you? >> yeah. i actually wrote a piece -- a newsletter both for gingrich productions and posted the challenge have you got is you originally have the clinton scandals going all the way back to cattle future in 1978 when she made
4:48 am
$98,000 on a $1,000 investment which is clearly just called fraud. but the clintons have had scandals their whole career. then you have the scandal of the establishment of the deep state covering up for the clintons, offering immunity. you know, imagine, this guy bleach bits the computer so they give him immunity? they don't charge either of her top staff people? i mean, look at how they treat the trump people. look at how they treated the hillary clinton people. then, third, you have the scandal of a totally false, we're now learning very long obama administration effort to destroy trump through a variety of investigations. and i'm convinced it goes up to valerie jarrett and to president obama. you couldn't have had this scale of activity on that front. then, fourth, you have the scandal of the fbi itself breaking down. we now have had the top guy resign. we have had the number two guy resign. both of them may well face criminal charges. you had several other top
4:49 am
people had to resign or retire. all of that ties back into the justice department and the obama white house. and then finally, you're beginning to see some people like general clapper kind of melt down because i think there were a number of folks who thought they could go ahead and do whatever they wanted to because hillary would cover it up. it's gradually sinking it they might be vulnerable and i look at the cia director and the former director of intelligence, you know, two of the good examples of people who really went over the line assuming they would be protected and now they could be faced with serious charges in their own right. brian: both guys who are known to have to verify intelligence and come out with very learned opinions have said well, i think that putin has been has compromised trump and clapper thinks russia threw the election. i'm just saying that even though the evidence doesn't point to that totally
4:50 am
irresponsible. they are acting like guilty people. newt, thanks so much. i cannot wait for your book. >> well, look, i have to tell you, the breaking point for me was the interview clapper did where he said he hated to use the word spy. and i thought to myself, this guy was the director of national intelligence. ainsley: i know, right. >> he was theoretically in charge of all of our spies that would be like having a guy who is a bar keeper who doesn't like alcohol and refuses to serve it i mean, just challenging how screwed up these guys are getting as they face a world they never expected to have happen. ainsley: they didn't. they thought hillary was going to win. brian: right. thanks, newt. >> that's right. brian: you heard president trump give her a shoutout last night. >> she loves your state. she loves your country. she's going to win. marsha blackburn. brian: this morning congresswoman marsha blackburn joins us live. ainsley: one university making a pledge to the university of our fallen

republican, they're in trouble what do you say to that criticism. >> he is very popular in tennessee. i was so pleased last night he talked some about national security because fort campbell is right there outside of nashville, the 101st airborne, has recently deployed. we had some of those families with us last night. and people loved hearing him buildout a little bit more about those things and what a place place to do it. someplace that you have tremendous support. he carried the state. and people are saying, we want to be certain that we hold the house and the senate so the president can continue to push forward this agenda. ainsley: if you're constituents are watching, why should they vote for you? >> they should vote for me because i am somebody that will take their values to washington. i am somebody who is going to work every day to make the senate majority act like a majority, to get things done,

5:26 am
>> yeah. it has been two years hearing about treasonous collusion between russia and trump. so much is happening investigationwise. multiple congressional investigations. special counsel came after a longer fbi investigation. and, every media outlet in the country really focused on this. so we have had so much information about it, we have no evidence of any treasonous collusion with russia to steal the election that hillary clinton was supposed to win. and that is interesting because we've had so much information about this overall story. at the same time, we have learned a lot about other things that are problematic. if you do have a problem with a campaign, working with foreign entities to get dirt on their opposing candidate, we have hillary clinton and a democratic national committee secretly funding and commissioning this foreign spies report that was used to weaponized by the u.s. government and used to secure wiretaps. now we learned so much more about how that report was used
5:27 am
by the government? human informants put on to the campaign. national security letters and so much more. if you're concerned about foreign meddling we have an example of it with this secret operation done secretly-funded and secretly-commissioned by hillary clinton. pete: if you were looking for collusion that's where you could find it. another place you might find it, there is a inspector general report coming out soon we believe from michael horowitz will look into the handling of investigation of hillary clinton's server. could there not be evidence there was some collusion between investigators and the campaign to maybe look the other way when she broke some laws? >> i don't know if that would quite qualify as collusion. definitely we have so much evidence of major problems with how the fbi handled that, where they, it seems worked very hard to down play evidence of criminal conduct and we have seen some people at the fbi be fired, quickly leave their jobs
5:28 am
under threat of firing, or be reassigned, who were involved in that investigation and as it happens also the trump campaign investigation. so i think we're very anxious to see what is in that report. what we already got from that report, which was about one of andrew mccabe's leaks to the media, how he lied about it, we know there were quite a few more, i'm very interested to see what we learn in the whole report. pete: one man's collusion could be coordination, could be looking the other way, no matter how you spin it, it looks like preferential treatment which is unfortunate for all of us. we'll see what the report has. molly, thanks for breaking that down for us. >> thank you. peter: her husband was deported from the u.s. for being an illegal immigrant. she is not mad. >> our laws come first. our laws are broken and need to be fixed but i can't be mad at trump for doing his job. pete: you bet the liberal media was not expecting that answer. and president trump firing up the nashville crowd talking
