8:01 pm
law, could he be facing time behind bars? hello, welcome to "fox news @ night." i'm shannon bream in washington. the president speaking with world leaders late tonight, so far it seems the white house is not backing down, just minutes ago, before those tariffs go into effect that many are claiming will spark a trade war with our closest allies. we have team coverage tonight. kristin fisher looking ahead to tomorrow's white house visit by top north korean general kim yong chol for your chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge denied looking at the mccabe developments and his secret memos. correspondent backspin in chicago talking with rod will talking with rob blagojevich supporters looking for a presidential pardon. we begin with chief national correspondent ed henry with more on those contact on my controversial tariffs. >> its causing reverberations. these tariffs will start hitting some key u.s. allies in less than an hour. the president has extended the deadline a month to work out pharaoh deals for americans, in his words, but in the case of canada, their trade rep left washington, went home.
8:02 pm
the president said he's keeping his word. moving forward. tariffs of 25% on steel, 10% on aluminum imports on canada, mexico, and european union. the president's aides are saying this amounts to a fraction of 1% of the economies of these various countries but they are lashing out anyway. mexico said it would target american egg exports. canada announced $16 billion in tariffs on various u.s. goods. the anger must may be a strongr the republican in his own party. paul ryan saying we should reserve these battles for nations like china and warning this will be a tax increase on american consumers. remember, the president seemed to patch things up with his sometimes nemesis bob corker, senate foreign relations committee, all smiles in the oval office. corker helped bring that american joshua holt home from the venezuelan prison. tonight, corker is furious, saying, "imposing steel and aluminum tariffs on our most
8:03 pm
important trading partners is the wrong approach and represents an abuse of authority intended only for national security purposes. if we truly want to level the playing field for american companies, we should be working with our friends and allies to target those actually responsible for taping markets in their favor." those allies include france, the finance minister said that global trade is not "a gunfight at the o.k. corral." actually frames it exactly as the president wants. he's fighting for america first policy is, the president tweeting two simple words. "fair trade." >> the president's actions are about protecting american steel, american aluminum. critical for national security, and he's worked to exempt certain countries and allies for which we have security relationships. in these instances, it wasn't possible by the president took action. we will continue to make arguments based on logic and common sense and hopefully they will prevail against an administration that doesn't always align itself around those principles.
8:04 pm
>> this could really blow up the president's tense relationship with chancellor angela merkel. a german magazine reporting the president privately said part of his goal is to slow german auto imports so much that it can stop so many mercedes-benz sedans from rolling down fifth avenue in new york, where you will remember he is a tower. former obama aide ben rhodes is coming out with revelations about how shattering the president's win was for team obama and their friends around the world. angela merkel ran for a fourth team largely to keep president trump in check in her words. perhaps the commander due to my distracting back. >> shannon: they have some things to discuss. ed henry, thank you very much. there were holding party has been split on terrace four months. the issue was the reason the former white house economic advisor gary cohn resigned. the house ways and means committee, he's confident that his fellow republicans and also democrats dire predictions of the impact of the tariffs on the u.s. economy will not pan out.
8:05 pm
congressman, welcome. >> thank you for having me on. >> shannon: let's talk about these objections. before them from both sides. tonight, though, top geo senator orrin hatch had this to say. "my position remains unchanged. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports are a tax hike on americans and will have damaging consequences for consumers, manufacturers, and workers." do you think he has it wrong? >> i appreciate those comments. i do appreciate with the president is doing brady's bringing disruptive policies to the trade agenda to send a message to not only our allies, most importantly to china, we will follow through and putting american interest first. that is of her message that you have not heard on the trade agenda. what i see out of this administration, exactly what they promise to do. disrupt the trade policy to put american interest in the same equal level playing field of fair trade, not trade that is at our cost. >> shannon: mexico and canada basically saying, mexico says it will be tit-for-tat, they talked about exactly what they will go
8:06 pm
after, with regard to american products. steel, lamps, pork shoulders, sausage, you know, apples, all kinds of things. those industries tonight are sounding the alarm. they are worried about this, those are american companies that do you have a potential downside to this whole issue. what you say to them to reassure them? >> i appreciate that. there is a process for these tariffs, in order to be legal. they have a process to go through in regard to our agreements as well as potential implications. at the end of the day, i think what this sense, when canada walks away from the table, they better understand, there's consequences to that. they need to stay at the table, negotiate this, just like brazil and south korea negotiated through this, the president sat with them and negotiated a resolution network for both sides to make it a fair agreement going forward. this is exactly what canada and mexico should be doing as well as the e.u. we are good allies, we can work this out. you got to negotiate in good faith to protect the american interests as well as the role interests. >> shannon: here is for the
8:07 pm
house speaker has to say about this. paul ryan says "i disagree with the decision. instead of addressing the real problem in the international trade of these products, it targets america's allies when we should be working with them to address the unfair trading practices of countries like china." what do you make of that? reported that from a number of people, saying, the real bad actor is china. we need to team up with mexico and canada to take on that fact. >> that is why canada shouldn't be leaving the room, they should be staying on the room, and work it out. i'm confident we can. if not we are sending a message to china. if we are willing to stand firm in regards to our allies, when we go after to china, the big elephant in the room, the one that is the most egregious offender of our trade policies that are against american interests, we are going to send a message to china that we are not messing around anymore. it is time to put american interest on the same playing field of others taking advantage of us for years. >> shannon: a lot of folks who voted for the president for that very reason, a strong message of
8:08 pm
his throughout the campaign. no one should be surprised. congressman tom reed, great to have you with those. >> we'll keep working through it. thank you so much. >> shannon: more breaking news on the summit, before the summit come over north korea. "real progress has been made," that is according to secretary of state mike pompeo. kristin fisher following the latest developments ahead of a really big meeting at the white house tomorrow. good evening. >> this would have been unthinkable just six months ago. now kim jong un's right-hand man is on its way to washington and tomorrow, he'll hand-deliver a letter from his boss to president trump at the white house. after meeting with americans topped diplomat in new york cit new york city. >> secretary of state mike pompeo and north korean vice-chairman kim yong chol spent two and half hours talking over the conditions that must be met prior to president trump sitting down with kim jong un and singapore 12 days from today. >> we've made real progress in the last 72 hours toward setting
8:09 pm
the conditions. >> to secretary pompeo described the negotiations as difficult as moving in the right direction. the united states, that means a standing firm on its number one objective. the complete and verifiable denuclearization of north korea. but it also means giving the north koreans something that they want to. security, prosperity, and inclusion in the global community. >> i believe they are contemplating a path forward where they can make a strategic shift, one other country has not been prepared to make before. speaker preparations are underwd singapore for what secretary pompeo is describing as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change the course of the world. today president trump said it may take more than one meeting to reach a deal. >> we may have to have a signatory third and maybe we'll have none. but it's in good hands. that i can tell you. >> as for what exactly is in a letter from kim jong un, it appears even president trump is in the dark. >> i look forward to seeing what is in the letter but it is very
8:10 pm
important to them, so they'll be probably coming down to washington, d.c., on friday for the delivery of the letter. i look forward to that. >> the secretary of state was asked when he'll be asked to officially announce at the summit is on or off. he said, he did it now. in the end, the final question will be up to president trump and president trump alone president trump alone. >> shannon: kristin fisher with the latest. thank you so much. another breaking news, potential major development, "the washington post" reporting that d.c. u.s. attorney's office is seriously considering whether former u.s. at deputy director andrew mccabe should be charged with a crime, and that they interviewed his former boss at the bureau, james comey. that story is still developing. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge looks at another angle about secret memos mccabe prepared and how they could impact the special counsel's investigation. catherine? >> shannon, a source familiar with the members tells fox news
8:11 pm
the former fbi deputy director andrew mccabe documented a meeting alleging the numbers, rod rosenstein said president trump wanted him to include russia in the memo use with the fbi director james comey. rosenstein, we are told, declined by the sources said rosenstein gave a copy of a draft letter firing call me written by president trump. that letter has since been passed on to special counsel robert mueller. writing on twitter today, the president said, "not that it matters but i never fired james comey because of russia. the corrupt mainstream media loves to keep pushing that narrative. but they know it is not true." earlier on fox, the president's spokesman went further. >> he said on national television, it's because of james comey's handling of the codes and investigation. the letter that the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein sent him. there are a number of reasons. these leaked confidential information. he gave false statements under oath to congress. >> mccabe testified on
8:12 pm
capitol hill earlier this year and was fired in march, just days before his fbi retirement. after the justice department's internal watchdogs included, mccabe misled federal investigators about his media contacts before the 2016 election. this report from justice department inspector general michael e horwitz found that mccabe "lacked candor, including under oath on multiple occasions." the inspector general concluded concluded that the disclosure about the ongoing investigation violated the fbi's and department media policy and constituted misconduct. for his part, mccabe disputes the findings, telling the inspector general that his boss director comey know about the outreach to "the wall street journal." the inspector general's findings were referred to the u.s. attorney here in washington for possible prosecution under 18 usc 1,001, which makes it a crime to lie to federal investigators. shannon? >> shannon: catherine herridge, thank you very much. today, president trump ardent conservative filmmaker dinesh d'souza, who pled guilty to violating federal campaign
8:13 pm
finance laws. other high-profile presidential pardons are coming? >> shannon, robert leverage his wife has been asking for the president to pardon her husband, rob will go a bit. it's not a surprise that the president said that he is jittering the pardon. he was convicted on several corruption charges, mostly related for trying to sell a senate seat left vacant when barack obama was elected president. he was tape-recorded by the fbi saying that then president-elect obama senate seats was a golden thing. he wasn't going to give it up for nothing. blagojevich was sentenced to 14 years and has been in federal persian so my prison outside of denver since 2012. he filed a series of appeals to the supreme court and they were denied. now blagojevich's only hope is the president and the two
8:14 pm
happened to know each other. blagojevich appeared on president trump's reality show "the apprentice." here is a former governor's wife tonight. >> president trump is a kind man, compassionate, he's always been kind to my family. he knows how important it is that my husband gets home, to be a father to our daughters, we can't help to be helpful. >> today the president officially pardoned dinesh d'souza, tweeting that he was tweeted treated fairly and fairly by the government operated 2014, he pleaded guilty to a count of making illegal contributions to a republican candidate. the president is considering pardoning martha stewart, who spent five months in prison after pleading guilty for lying to investigators about insider trading. president trump happens to have a connection to stuart, who also hosted a spin-off is as reality show. the president is sending a message to michael flynn, the
8:15 pm
former national security advisor, paul manafort, the former campaign advisor, and michael cohen, the president's personal attorney. the message? not to cooperate with the mueller investigation and the president has the power to pardon them if necessary. congressman adam schiff, member of of the house intelligence committee, tweeting in part, "abuse of power continues. with pardon of conservative activists who broke campaign finance laws like hiding donations over the legal limit, trying to send a message to michael cohen." earlier today, i spoke to patty blagojevich who said she was not expecting the president's announcements today that he is considering pardoning her husband. shannon? >> shannon: thank you so much. two big developments tonight. let's break them down with former doj attorney tom dupree. mccabe and the pardons. we'll start there. great to have you with us, tom. breaking news tonight, jim comey has been interviewed by prosecutors who are examining whether or not they will bring charges against andrew mccabe. we know these two don't see eye to eye on the inspector general's report,
8:16 pm
which found that mccabe had lied four times, at least three of them under oath. comey tells a different story. what does this signal to you? >> the u.s. attorney's office for the district of columbia's taking this very seriously, as they should. the inspector general released a detailed report, it was extremely damaging findings that potentially exposed mccabe to criminal jeopardy. the inspector general made a referral, which does not guarantee an indictment or charges being brought, but it typically will ensure that the prosecutors will look at the evidence, they will interview the relevant players, and to make a decision. the fact that they are talking to comey is not surprising to me. frankly, i would have been surprised if they didn't talk to him because he is a key witness in all this braided's address they are moving ahead with this investigation and it may well result in charges for andrew mccabe. >> shannon: we are getting worried about memos, that mccabe drafted, much like what we heard about comey's drafted,g conversations. these are about rod rosenstein. what are the impacts?
8:17 pm
>> rod rosenstein is in an awkward position as he often does. what is particularly unusual is we are now seeing that rod rosenstein is really a fact witness as lawyers like to say, he observed things that were relevant to potential crimes that may or may not have been committed, and of the same time, he is also in charge of the investigation. this is an extremely unusual position to be in. i think it is tough, frankly, to reconcile those two. a witness in the investigation and to be running the investigation. rosenstein at this point doesn't think that it's warranted recusal but it will be interested to see if he can maintain that position as it moves forward. >> shannon: by the way, his attorney has always had, we knew this was going to play out this way, he's innocent, "we were confident that unless there is an appropriate pressure from high levels of the administration, the u.s. attorney's office will conclude that it should declined to prosecute, our view has not changed." what else can i say? we'll see what happens. meanwhile, pardons. tom stier, single-handedly leading the charge to try to get
8:18 pm
the president impeached, no secret about that, tweeted, "is anyone else noticing how mr. trump pardons the same crimes that are alleged in the mueller investigation, #obstructionofjustice. "he wants the president impeached. is there a different message beyond, i don't think this person was treated fairly? >> he doesn't feel bound by history, tradition, regulation. if he thinks there was an injustice, he is going to exercise his pardon power. the constitution gives the president extremely broad authority to issue pardons. to be sure, in the past, presidents have gone through the doj pardon office, and that is the way these things are typically done. i think what we are seeing now is yet another example of a president who said, i want to be bound by the regulations, i will just do what's right, and i think these pardons are a good example of that. >> shannon: in a piece in "the washington post," it was very specific, dinesh d'souza, he called him the most despicable and poisonous figure,
8:19 pm
one of them, and the public life. this president is all about controlling people, and finding ways to trigger the libs. you got to know he's enjoying this. >> no question. dinesh d'souza sparks very strong opinions all over the place, and i suspect that this is a case that got on the president's radar because it was high-profile. most, if not all, of the pardons have been for people who have been in the public spotlight, people the president thinks has been victim of law-enforcement overreach. it is not surprising that he settled on dinesh d'souza, not surprising that he's exploring pardons of blagojevich, of martha stewart. it will be very interesting to see how far it goes. >> shannon: my understanding is that d'souza had not even put in a pardon request braided was his lucky day. time to put -- tom dupree, thank you. next tuesday, the california primary. top democrats under fire for affairs they've admitted to still raking in big bucks and

samantha bee has not had these kind of instances. when people compare it to "roseanne" him or comments were disgusting -- >> shannon: she's had some pretty racy, disgusting things about the president and members of the administration. it probably has to be believed on her show. this is not a first-time incident. >> no, it's not. she goes after democrats, too. adam schiff, chuck schumer, they put on the receiving end of really biting jokes. i have been in the studio for some of those jokes and some of them are funny, some of them aren't. i think we need to take a step back and make sure that both sides are not weaponizing comedy and weaponizing the first amendment. there are legitimate concerns about how we speak to each other and politicizing it doesn't make it better. >> shannon: know. again, guy, it creates a situation where people don't know what is a fireball offense, what isn't. people are offended across the spectrum. they've been hearing for years
8:42 pm
from roseann and think they have been saying to my key ring from samantha bee, is there a rulebook? >> that is the thing i am puzzled by. it sometimes seems to me that there are different standards depending on which end of the political spectrum you might identify with. in some cases, it looks like just saying i'm sorry is good enough if you are joy behar and insulting questions or if you are samantha bee insulting the first family or if you are keith olbermann being very venomous and abusive all the time on twitter to all sorts of people, but if you are an anchor on this network for example who tweet something that you regret and you apologize for it, the corporate structure in america goes along with the left agitation to join a significant boycott of your show. will that happen to samantha bee? i agree actually with a point about being against the weaponization of outrage. being particularly protective of comedy and the comedy space, but shouldn't there be, if the standards are the same, there should be boycotts and outrage

and punishment and a huge brouhaha no matter which political side you fall on and i fear that is not always the case. to put it mildly. >> shannon: michael, do you think we will get one? >> i think we will have some kind of even keel. she'll get some discipline. i don't think it will be firing. >> shannon: okay. we'll stand by. michael and guy, great to see you. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: president trump visits to santa fe, texas, to consult their families of the shooting victims. a stunning new look at hawaii's erupting volcano. it is like nothing you have ever seen what we are about to show you. ♪ you totaled your brand new car.
