3:00 am
we're getting a new look inside president trump's legal strategy, a letter written by the president's attorney pushing back on the special council's request for a one on one interview. >> the president has offered transparency. whether it helps him or hurts him, he wants to get the message out. this monday will mark president trump's 500th day in office. >> everywhere you look there's trump progress. he's there for the forgotten man and woman. >> the white house is reportedly in the early stages of planning a summit between president trump and russian president vladimir putin. >> it would be quite a historic double feature. >> it is time for senate democrats to stop resisting. they're resisting the will of the american voter.
3:01 am
>> all the people who voted for president trump -- >> we have to call people out when they want to use that racist word, what makes it, tell me that, if somebody is a billionaire, they're ratest, ra, that doesn't make a person racist. ♪ i love this shot when it comes into our living room like this. >> you're waking up bright and early, get a little coffee. i don't have any coffee. look at this. i forgot my coffee this morning. i do have diet coke, that's a backup. >> you really don't have coffee. you have cream and you pour a little coffee in there. >> a little bailey's too sometimes. >> never. >> never, ever do that. >> it's good to be here.
3:02 am
it's sunday morning, it's june 3rd. it's the summer. nba finals are on again tonight. because i'm a republican, i have to like pro sports. so i like pro sports. >> didn't charism chris matthy that. >> that's what he told me. >> so you do listen to chris matthews. >> no. there is a lot of news to get to. if you were reading the president's twitter and the new york sometimes, which i know pete does every day. >> the president was preempting the story by saying there was a leak of his lawyer's letter to the special council back in january that was 20 pages long. >> clearly, there's been back and forth between the white house and special council. is the president going to testify? is it under oath? will he be subpoenaed? all of the questions about what will bob mueller get to or not get to ask president trump or not. part of this -- this letter was an argument the trump team made to the mueller folks saying you know what, we don't think he has
3:03 am
to. listen to part of the -- we're going to read part of the letter that came from two of president trump's lawyers. this what is it said. could neither constitutionally nor legally constitute obstruction, because that would amount to him obstructing himself. >> i think that was a reference to firing james comey. >> this was a a letter written back in january. this is a letter written from the lawyers to the mueller team. this leaked out yesterday through the new york times. the president tweeted out that this was leaked out before it was published. >> who leaked it? >> that's the big question. you think whoever leaked it must benefit them in some way. i made the point that you could argue that both sides feel like they benefit in some way. the mueller team could say the president is showing he's above the law by writing this letter. and the president could argue he has the authority to shut this down so he's not obstructing. >> if i was obstructing, i would shut the mueller team down.
quote
3:04 am
>> alan gershowitz says the president has large executive power to fire anyone who is underneath him in the federal government. in the case of james comey he the power to fire him whenever he wanted. the idea that that would amount to obstruction of justice, it would never hold up in a court of law. that's what he has said. i think the broader question is in terms of whether or not he will be subpoenaed, the president, to testify one on one, answer questions one on one with robert mueller, this 20 page letter seems to go a lot further and say it's not just about the firing of james comey but in the general flynn case and other matters as well that the president's executive power suggests that he's above the law when it comes to obstruction of justice. >> this is what the president tweeted before this was released. he said there was no collusion with russia except by the democrats. when will this very expensive witch hunt hoax ever end.
3:05 am
so bad for the country. are my lawyers being leaked to the fake news media? should be looking at testimon as obstruction as well. >> what has the president done that everyone is saying he's above the law. he fired the fbi director, james comey. he said a lot of bad things about bob mueller. that's pretty much -- if you're looking at what he's done, what has been done to him, endless lies, endless leaks and now spies, we learned, unrelenting resistance. it never ends. the russian collusion hoax has been a massive distraction for this country since he came into the presidency. >> if it's all a hoax, why can't the president sit down and answer some questions? >> it's a very fair question. he's been open and transparent. >> i think he want to sit down. >> why -- i think he wants to sit down. >> why do you want to walk into a perjury trap or slip on one
3:06 am
thing and now you're in trouble. even if you're not guilty, you can look guilty or be made guilty at the last minute. you've been clear the whole way, the last five yards is really important. >> that's what his lawyers are telling him. it sounds like the president keeps saying i want to talk to mueller, i've got nothing to hide. to your point, pete, we are here, $17 million spent on this investigation. you have had the top investigators, the top reporters around the world looking at this for over a year and we still don't have any real evidence. >> if we knew of a crime of this president, we would know about it. if we knew of collusion, we would know about it by now. collusion isn't even a crime. it would have been leaked to the new york times, the minute they had it. it hasn't been there. what are we doing. it's been a distraction. >> it's clear what the white house wants to do is talk about
3:07 am
the good things the president's been doing. the economy has been a highlight. the last week, from foreign policy with north korea on to the jobs numbers on friday. kellyanne conway made it clear that's what they want to focus on. >> any one major achievement would be enough, in the first 500 days, when you think about it all together, this president's leadership has brought north korea to the white house, to the negotiating table. the jobs numbers, you have the lowest unemployment rate in 18 years. one-eighth of our u.s. circuit court includes a trump p judge. everywhere you look, there's trump progress. the regulatory reductions, small business confidence, consumer confidence, it's all around us. those who deny it are spitting into the wind. >> something else she said, i think she did an interview with the daily caller and she said
3:08 am
you know what name rarely comes up is president barack obama. it's about putting forth the policies we feel are best for the country. here we are, day 500 of the administration. the economy, we're at 3.8% unemployment. that is a great place to be. historic tax cuts, fighting against isis, you talk about it all the time, the release of prisoners, the upcoming summit with kim jong un, leaving the ran deal, moving -- leaving the iran deal. >> and there's one or two more supreme court justices and if you're a conservative, that really matters. it doesn't include the v.a. with accountability, and choice, a bill that will be signed this week at the white house, leaving the paris climate accord, all the trade negotiations that are ongoing. if you believed in this president and voted for him,
3:09 am
he's doing just that. it's not just the negative against barack obama, it's the proactive agenda of a president who laid it out and he's doing it. >> there's a lot to be done. you think about immigration, we've got a lot of challenges when it comes to immigration and there's also health care we have to figure out. >> the wall would be his favorite one if you could get it on the list. that's become the center point of the resistance. you can't give the president the wall, if you do, you can't win a democratic primary. >> the midterms are coming up. what more still needs to be done with this administration? what do you think needs to be done in this country to get to a good place? >> we talked about infrastructure. that never came up. >> that's a big one. a lot going on this morning. i want to bring you other headlines. two hikers fall to their deaths in a popular landmark in yosemite national park. they plummeted from a 3,000-foot vertical rock formation. it's unclear how high the climbers up when they fell. this is the second climbing death at that park in less than
3:10 am

3:11 am
place, launching on wednesday. >> kazhakstan, not where i expected they would land. just being honest. you're reading the thing, i thought maybe in the ocean or somewhere else. i guess they don't land in the ocean anymore. >> is that where borat was from? >> yes, kazhakstan. >> is that where he was really from? coming up, google labeling a gop state senator a bigot, a remarkable story, with this picture appearing online when you search her name. that senator is fighting back. plus, the anti-trump media has melania on their minds, pushing conspiracy theories about where she's been after she had surgery. why are they so intent on tearing her down, details ahead.

3:14 am
welcome back. the anti-trump media still pushing those conspiracy theories about melania trump's absence in public. the new york daily news leading with the melania watch. >> the media so intent on tearing her down. here to weigh in, tommy loren. they don't stop, they're almost obsessed with where is she, what is she doing. what do you make of their response? >> again, the only standard that the left and the leftist main stream media operate on is the double standard. they claim to be pro-immigrant, pro-women, unless we're talking about melania trump. they are obsessed. this is another symptom of trump
3:15 am
derangement syndrome. when they haven't had enough of attacking our president, they move along and attack his family. we would have never seen this with the obama family. they were never treated this way. the trump family, day in, day out, it's constant. >> you know what's so interesting? up until this point where she's been out and about, talking about issues she cared about, i've complained she hasn't gotten the attention she deserves. she's got an incredible story to tell. all of a sudden, people are fascinated by her, they're talking about her all the time. there's irony here. >> they spent this president's entire presidency trying to convince us that his wife doesn't even like him. if you read the new york daily news article, they're insisting that once again that that's the reason that we haven't seen melania. the woman was ill. the woman just went through a surgery. and they are that insensitive that they're going to attack her, attack her marriage, attack the woman. it's really repulsive when you think about it.
3:16 am
can you imagine if they would have done this to the obama family. the obama family is untouchable. every day, the trump family is attacked from the oldest members to the youngest members and at some point aren't they sick and tired of their own dirty tricks? >> you make a good point. i remember baron trump being attacked around the inaugural, he was as well. and you look at the headlines i don't think the new york daily news. the telegraph, melania trump unseen in public for 21 days. cnn, melania trump's absence continues, skipping camp david weekend. there's been talk in recent months that mel a ania trump hasn't -- melania trump hasn't been on the cover of any major magazine, the way first ladies have traditionally been. all these magazines, they've largely ignored her. now they're all over her. >> it's only the negative
3:17 am
coverage. it's not just melania, it's ivanka, kellyanne, it's the women within the trump family and the trump administration that have done historic and mental things, -- monumental things, they're either ignored or attacked. if these women were democrats, they would be on the cover of every single women's magazine from the beginning of the presidency to present day and we know this. that's why i look at the left and i look at the leftist mainstream media and i say there's a double standard that exists. i wish they would recognize it within themselves. a lot of the outlets are struggling because they're turning off conservative women. we are still people. we still read their magazines. we still read the news. conservative women are here to say. when they learn how to cater to us, they'll do better for themselves. >> just include that side as well, to your point. tommy, thank you very much for getting up early this morning. >> we wish melania the best. coming up, we mentioned this a moment ago, google, this is
3:18 am

3:21 am
good sunday morning. we're back with quick headlines for you. another tragedy on a delta
3:22 am
airlines flight as yet another dog was found dead. the dog was traveling in a crate in the jet's cargo to new jersey. ithe owner said they were found during a layover. delta said they are investigating the incidence. delaware will be the first new state to allow sports gambling outside of nevada. delaware sports took gaming products live in three casinos on tuesday afternoon. it's the first state to launch a betting operation since the supreme court struck down a ban on wagering in may. google is apologizing after search results for state senator true di wade -- trudi wade showed her image with the word bigot across it. images that appear in the knowledge panel are selected by verified users or sourced from
3:23 am
sites across the web. it sounds unbelievable. joining us now to respond is senator trudy wade. good morning, senator. this is horrifying for me, the idea that you can wake up and your image has bigot splashed across it. >> well, it's not that surprising to me or my colleagues back in north carolina. we certainly see this a lot in editorials and the news media, especially the liberal media, social media. it's not unusual for us being conservative. >> but it seems like it could go further. when you look at google's tweet about how the images work when you search them, they say in this instance the image was hosted on a student news blog. upon being alerted to this issue we immediately removed it from the knowledge panel. my question is it seems like, and have they called you to offer any more explanation
3:24 am
beyond this tweet? >> no, sir, they haven't. actually, it was removed after it went to a national audience. it wasn't removed when it was first reported. >> wow. and so my concern is just seeing this, it seems like not just a politician but a small business owner in north carolina, south carolina, georgia, all of a sudden you could wake up one morning and if a customer didn't like the service or doesn't like the cheeseburger you made for him, they can call you a racist, they can call you a bigot and they can manipulate the image and you could wake up to a horrifying situation. >> yes, sir. if the reporter hadn't called me about this, i would have probably not known or unless a constituent called me or a client. >> and so in this case they're saying that a student newspaper that i assume was targeting you called you a bigot. was there an incident that led them to have any factual basis to question whether or not you
3:25 am
are a bigot. >> not that i'm aware of. i was on the city council at the time. on any outlet like that, you can call anyone anything you like to and it's very hard to get it off. >> there was not a specific issue, a vote or something where unfairly or fairly they were interpreting your vote, your statement, your speech, there wasn't even an underlying issue where they could falsely claim you were a bigot. there was nothing specific? >> it was actually something, a resolution that the city council did regarding the marriage amendment with the general assembly, which i was serving on at that time. >> so they were taking that. does that tell you as a politician that basically if somebody doesn't like you, as you mentioned a moment ago with the internet, they can go on a blog, they can go in the comments section, they can do all kinds of things and all of a sudden paint you as a racist, paint you as a bigot, even if there's no evidence to that
3:26 am
fact. >> that's correct. not only on social media. they do it in the liberal newspapers every day, if you're a conservative, and especially a conservative woman. >> final yes. what's your message to google this morning. what do you want them to do not just for you, but any conservative, any liberal out there, how this could be manipulated and misused, what's your message to google? >> they need to have a procedure in order to take those images down when they're not factual. and also, the image is still up on google images that we're talking about. they haven't taken that down yet. and i haven't heard from google at all. >> state senator, we appreciate you coming in to tell your story. it's concerning that this could happen to someone like you. we wish you well in the future. >> yes, sir, and if people would like to read more about it, they can go to my website, trudy wade.com. >> all right. thanks for coming in. >> thank you. this is a fox news alert. a manhunt intensifying at this

this is armageddon, in terms of the bonus that corporate america received versus the crumbs that they are giving to workers to kind of put the shmooze on is so pathetic. this is like giving you a bowl of doggie doo, put a cherry on top and call it a chocolate sundae. >> that last one -- >> i forgot about that. >> did she say doggie doo and yo.>> yeah, doggie doo and put a
3:32 am
cherry on top and call it a chocolate sundae. >> have you ever had one of those? >> can't say i've ever had one of those. apparently nancy knows what those are like. >> she also had things to say about the economy. you had very good numbers come out a couple days ago and she said the jobs report says this means little to the families met with soaring new costs under the republicans' watch. what do you make of that? >> if nancy pelosi was given a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, she would say it was too heavy to pick up and it might give her a hernia reaching over to grab its. i don't know what else to say, unless it's please, god, let nancy pelosi continue to be the voice of the democratic party because it's the best thing the republicans could have. all we need to do is take her words, put it on television and play it over and over again because all those families out there in america who are getting bonuses and pay raises, who have
3:33 am
jobs that were unemployed, they're going to say what la la land does nancy live in that she doesn't understand that she's unemployment numbers, which are historic, are incredibly good for a lot of people and especially for minorities who have the lowest unemployment numbers ever in history. >> governor you understand partisan politics. she's a democrat. our president's a republican. she's got to poke a hole in it. isn't there some point where you can acknowledge, when people are doing well, that's a good thing. >> well, you've got to do that because otherwise you lose your credibility which is what the democrats have done. they say they're for certain things, for example, they want to increase minority employment but when it happens they're unhappy with it. they want to move the embassy to jerusalem until donald trump does it. then they think he shouldn't they want to have peace on the korean peninsula until we get close to it and then they don't like the way it's being delivered. you take a list of anything that the president has done
3:34 am
positively, things that have happened in a strong way, and they'll find a way to somehow dislike it. it's like the man who lived his whole life and he thought the whole world stun stunk until ony he learned he had limberger cheese on his upper lip and it wasn't the world that stung, itt was him. >> the president is calling the mueller investigation a witch hunt and maybe that's why this isn't breaking through to the american people. what do you make of the letter from his attorneys asserting broad executive power. as some have said, firing james comey, the president had the power to do that, whether people liked that or not. do you believe as they suggest that the president basically cannot face obstruction of justice charges? that seems like a very broad view of the constitution. >> i think it's pretty clear
3:35 am
that he can't face it for firing a person that he had the power to fire. the magic words in employment, in federal or state government, for that matter, is at the pleasure of, which means tha an unclassified employee can be fired for any cause. you can just say i didn't like the tie you wore today. you're gone. that's how it works. it may not be pleasant but that's how it is. >> can he shut down the whole investigation? does he have the power to do that. >> he may have the power to do it. it would not be a wise thing to do just because the political blowback of that would be unbearable. frankly, i don't think he needs to. this is an investigation that so far has not produced one bit of evidence that the president was involved with anything that was untoward. so in a way, the transparency with which he has approached it and he has has been good. i think his attorneys are dead right when they say they're not going to put the president in a
3:36 am
chair facing bob mueller. look, let's go back to the simple thing of the mirro mirana warning. jack webb on the opening of every dra net would say you have the right to remain silent. if you give up that right, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. anybody brain power would understand you don't sit down with the person who is out to get you and start volunteering information and singing like an opera star because no good will come from that. >> especially if you're innocent. >> especially if you're innocent. >> thank you very much. >> we'll see where it goes from here. always good to see you. we love your sense of humor. >> i don't know what an english p is. >> you don't know what miso soup is. >> from doggie doo to smelly cheese on your lip to the motorcycle. we've got a lot of news.

republicans and a bunch of lesser known democrats. if 60% of the votes were cast for a democrat but two republicans split the other 40%, -- then you get two republicans with 20% of the vote and all the democrats get 9, 8, whatever, then it's two republicans on the ballot. >> or you can have one republican endorsed by an incumbent, clearly up front and you have four our candidates within 3 points of each other in the latest polling, so it's a total toss-up. the democrats could -- if they win these seats, if they get a democrat on the ballot in november, they have a shot to pick up the house seats. if they get shut out, they're republican victories no matter what. >> people may be saying why are we talking about these three races in california, because it all adds up. >> it all adds up. there's 23 seats the democrats need to win control of the u.s. house. there's a bunch of possible pick-ups in pennsylvania.
3:47 am
california, another big haul, think they have a shot, pickings up some ground. every one of those seats they lose or they give up a chance to win he creates problems, makes this 23 number so much harder to get. >> absolutely. the national mood matters in this because -- >> it sure does. >> let's say that scenario you described happened where you've got a strong republican and a toss-up for three or four others, you can afford a bad democratic candidate if the wins are with you, but if not, it's problematic. >> back in december, democrats were up 13 points. >> what was december again? >> this was before tax reform was passed. there was a lot of frustration with the base. at that point the democrats could give up a lot of seats frivolously. right now it's a race by race battle. scottrasmussen.com, we have a rating on every race. democrats would have to win 24 out of 31 to win control.
3:48 am
>> 24 out of 31. >> that's a pretty good winning percentage. if they give up two or three seats, they have to win 24 out of 28 or 29 and there's a lot of other issues here but it's a race by race fight because we're down to a very close generic congressional ballot. if it's a 4 point margin on election day, we're going to be up very late. >> more or less margin of error. the primary in california is on tuesday. >> there's no other way to describe this -- >> we're struck with the system we have. >> i can't predict anything about the three districts. it's a total luck of the draw. >> we will be following. is there such thing as too much patriotism? one business hit with a violation for what their town calls an excessive amount of american flags. their response will make you even prouder to be an american. and father's day just two weeks away. have you bought dad something yet? most heads are shaking just like

maybe their hands are clean within the fbi, those individuals that looked into was there this or that. the larger operation can't be seen as above board at the fbi. it's defending the rank and file fbi guy but not the motives of people at the top who seem to be trying to dig up -- >> the president has said if there was collusion, i want to find out about it. >> he charged comey with doing that. he said if there's collusion, look for it and find it. >> that's in the comey memos. what gowdy was saying what the fbi followed up on that. but did the fbi act properly in how they followed up? did they follow the protocols? the i.g. report will tell us that. >> are the protocols the same as what hillary clinton got. >> the i.g. report is focusing on th the hillary clinton investigation. >> the president is sort of this boom rang effect. he's trying to turn it down on

through here. behind that is less humid air which is good news. we have this disturbance across parts of the mid-atlantic. remember the ellicott city we saw last week in maryland? unfortunately, more rain, it's going to be stubborn here for the remainder of today. this is the future radar, hanging out throughout the day today, eventually this front moves in from the west and pulls this up. tonight, big showers moving across parts of jersey and areas of new england. then the cooler air settles in tomorrow, take a look at that, 53 for a high in boston in june. that isn't very much fun. all right, guys. >> rick, i think you need to keep the keys. >> from the atv, i know. sorry, dad. >> if he has more time on his hands, he needs to drive the atv around. don't take it away from him. >> this is a but he'l battle weg right now. senator bernie sanders joined the leaders of black

lives matter to call for an end to mass incarceration. listen to this. >> no more incar incarceration,s educate our kids. >> this rally was much different than previous run-in was the black lives matter movement. the group shut down one of his rallies during a protest in 2015. also this, the principal of a school holding a moment of silent for hamas terrorists has finally apologized. the head of new york city's beacon school wrote a letter to parents saying in part, quote, i regret the announcement offended anyone in the school community. moving forward i will take every care to ensure school-wide announcements are carefully reviewed. last month they honored those killed in gaza protests. a police officer who helped deliver a teen 18 years ailed ao surprised him as his graduation. >> as i walked out and saw him,
4:34 am
i recognized him from pictures. it was a nice surprise. >> officer robert hunt was completing a traffic stop when thomas' parents pulled over next to him an a maryland road. he noticed the teen's mom was in labor and jumped into action. she gave thomas the middle name robert as a tribute to the officer. they stayed in touch over the years through christmas cards. that's a great story. pete, over to you. just call them the left resistance army. comedians like these have had a field day making jokes about president trump and his administration before he took office. these jokes have taken a turn, have become more personal and more vulgar. >> mr. trump, i love your presidency. i call it days grac disgrace th. >> ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child. one mother to another, do something about your dad's
4:35 am
immigration practices, you [bleep] >> if anyone's an expert on hypocrites, it's sarah huckabee sanders. that was not a looks based joke. this was about her ugly personality. has comedy crossed the line? i'm conflicted. we live in a free country. i believe in free speech. income di tells a lot of -- i think comedy tells a lot of truths. but it seems like it's so dominated by the left, it's become a one-sided comedy show of trump hate. >> look at that picture that you had from the vanity fair. all of those comedians were from the same political party. this is not about free speech. there's plenty of free speech if you're a democrat. if you're a liberal, you've got free speech until the cows come home. if you're a republican, no way. you can't tell a knock knock joke about obama without having the fbi all over you, tapping
4:36 am
your phone and bugging your hard drive. >> would you acknowledge that at some level the left will give more of a pass to things that are about and against trump whereas if a conservative were to say it, the free speech confines seem tighter? >> to a point, to a point. i believe that the left is reacting the way they should be reacting right now. we have a president right now that actually tweets. >> we have a president who tweets because the so-called mainstream media would never tell his side of the story otherwise. have you saying things like -- you heard what colbert said, what samantha bee said. is that an appropriate response to a difference over how the president is doing his job. >> i believe it's an appropriate response to the way the president is doing his job and the way the administration is acting. the lunacy needs to be
4:37 am
addressed. comedians are addressing these things. the sound bright bites of sunday morning sound a little risque. they should be. >> it's propaganda. is it almost uninteresting? go to michael and back to you. is it almost uninteresting because it's so one-sided that it's predictable, michael? >> it's completely uninteresting. these guys have forgotten that their job is to make people laugh. they're not even comedians. there's no punch lines. they're just shouting insults into a camera in a room full of people who already agree with them. they're the loudest sheep in a room full of seem that's not sh. that's not brave. that's not pushing the envelope. you're preaching to a jacked up choir that already believes you. the brave thing is to be leaning to the right, like a guy like me.
4:38 am
i'm just on youtube doing my things. >> would you acknowledge that the brave thing is at a lot of these places is for a conservative to tell jokes that aren't trump hate and maybe reflect on nancy pelosi or chuck schumer. >> i'll do it. >> would you do it. >> that has happened. the funny part about the obama administration was that he, himself, his coolness. you have keye and peele and his angry persona. now we have an angry seeming president and angry seeming team. there is almost ra reagan era exclusion. we have a president talking about collusion with russians. who should be pointing these out? of course there's not punch line. the punch line is in the politics. somebody has to say look at what
4:39 am
this is, this is a ms-13 comedian's job. >> -- comedian's job. >> we were talking about black unemployment rate being the lowest it's ever been. that's not exclusion. it's a better way of life. >> if i'm not mistaken, black unemployment being at the lowest it has ever been would have been the fall-out from the obama administration. the jury is out about what trump is doing. >> i think the jury is in. he's crushing it. >> he's crushing it? he's crushing it. he crushing twitter. he's crushing athletes. he's crushing foreign hosed administration -- foreign heads of administration. this guy tweets. >> i don't know what the issue is with twitter. it's a modern convention. >> there's no issue with twitter. >> i love it. donald trump's br bravado, he cn back it up. he's going to get the nobel prize for peace with north and south korea.
4:40 am
he's doing great. unemployment all-time lows. we have freedom. we have capitalism. we save more people, we lift more people out of poverty. >> we are living in a golden age, baby. >> you guys should take it on the road. i think it would be a good show. >> this would be great. it would be good to see. >> i'm in. maybe we can be on obama's netflix channel. >> gentlemen, thank you very much. appreciate your time. have you seen this, a democratic congressional candidate comparing the president to osama bin laden in a new campaign ad. watch. >> i approve this message. i'm different. i'm not a politician. after 9/11, the greatest threat to our democracy lived in a cave. today he lives in the white house. >> the man behind that ad joins us next hour. i'll debate him. up next, corey lewandowski

4:44 am
welcome back. president trump set to mark his 500th day in office tomorrow as our next guest points out, it's been a great year for him so far. you wouldn't know it by listening to the anti-trump media. >> here to weigh in, corey lewandowski. good morning, corey. >> good morning. >> what do you think the media has largely missed? >> they've missed so many things. if you think of what this president's been able to achieve in 2018, 2.5 million new jobs have been created in the first six months of this year. historic tax cuts are taking effect. the release of american hostages overseas that the president negligencer yatesing without giving boat loads of cash to the countries. you think about what he said when he was in switzerland, america is open for business. you couple that with the fact that this president has assigned
4:45 am
the department of homeland security to work with at-risk schools so our children are safe, think about all the things he's been able to achieve. historic unemployment for african americans, historic levels of unemployment for the hispanic community, a stock market which continues to go up and those are just the tip of the iceberg. then you look at what secretary pompeo and now the president's going to be doing on june 12th which is a historic summit with kim jong un to potentially denuclearize the korean peninsula, what more can the american people ask for. >> then he's faced historic resistance, from never trumpers to the media to the democrats. what's been the key to fighting through that and getting to the place where the real ash michiganment -- accomplishments have added up. >> he's forced yes congress to continue to move on his agenda. he wants congress to do more. he's looor a budget that
4:46 am
will cut $3 trillion over the next 10 years so we're not spending more than we're bringing in every year. we've got more circuit court justices approved in this administration than any other administration ever. congress needs to stay in session. they need to keep working. they need to get these ambassadors approved so we don't have korean diplomats holding over in some of these positions. congress has to get on the president's team and ash michigaaccomplishwhat he wants r ththe american people. >> what do you think of the letter that was sent to the mueller team talking about the interview and reasons why they shouldn't do it and the main one being that the president has the power to shut this down. what is your response to that? >> first and foremost, it goes back to the biggest problem that this administration has had, which is leaks coming from either inside the building or somewhere within the administration. i don't know where this information was leaked from. if it's from the mueller team, that's very concerning. if it's from someone within the
4:47 am
administration, that's more concerning. i think the premise is exactly right. if the president were to ask me and he never has, i would recommend not sitting down with the mueller team because what the mueller team can do is they can write a report to the department of justice and ultimately to congress on if there was any clusion between the trump campaign and the russians and i know when i was there there was no collusion. there was no coordination. and they have all of the evidence to already demonstrate that this investigation has been taking place now to the tune of over $10 million for about a year and-a-half. it's time to end the investigation and tell the american people what we already know. >> on the substance of the letter, they seem to be making the contention, the president's lawyers, that he cannot face obstruction of justice charges because he's the top executive. a very wide berth on executive power. do you believe the president is above the law? >> nobody is above the law. i think what they argued and it makes a lot of sense to me is that if you try to subpoena the
4:48 am
president, the guliani legal team will take that to court to say the president can't be subpoenaed in this issue. if they can work out without a subpoena, that's one thing. they have laid out the arrestint that the president is above a subpoena in this issue based on legal precedence. that legal precedence goes back to the clinton administration in the late '90s where the justice department ruled the same thing. that's what i believe they base this on. i'm not an attorney but that's what i understand this to be from. >> he has the right to fire the fbi director. corey, thanks for your time. >> good to see you this morning. >> my pleasure. thank you. still to come, former white house chief of staff reince priebus is here live. plus, he is simply a baseball legend. best known for leading 1986 new york mets to the world series. davey johnson is here to tell us how being raised in a military family helped spark success,

4:53 am
you had cocktails with ted williams. what lessons did you learn from him? >> he's the greatest hitter in baseball. everybody knows ted williams, left-handed hitter. i asked him one time, i was playing for the orioles, we were training in miami, he was coming down with two television cameras and i said can i ask you a question, he said sure, son, did you really squeeze the sawdust out of the bat, he said no, i hold the t bat like i was holding a bird or a fish, i didn't want it to get away but i didn't kill it. we became friends after that. every time i went to washington i talked to to him. i hit .500. he said $500, you talk to another player. >> how did growing up in a military family set you up for success? >> i started little league in winter park, florida. we were going to win the
4:54 am
championship. my father got transferred to san antonio. i got to play there. and i got to see how everybody played around the country. and i still made the team in san antonio. so i thought maybe i'm okay, maybe it's okay to move around. >> also you say no is, no rs, no indindecision, no regrets. >> you go after what you love. as you go along, get a good education. education is the key to everything. as long as you want it and you're willing to work hard, i didn't care about a guy's ability, i cared about how much he had in his heart, in his make-up, it's you paying attention and concentrating. >> what about learning to lose? i would strike out, sometimes i would have a big hit and sometimes i would strike out and you would feel horrible. how do you learn to lose and channel that to get better? >> well, you know, losing is not the nicest thing.
4:55 am
you know. i mean, whether you lose as a pitcher or you don't get any hits, but that should drive you to practice harder. and there's always going to be a next time. and that's the great joy. i think losing teaches you not to be a good loser, but that you've got to work harder. >> you say no regrets. as i read the book, i thought you had at least second thoughts about the great mets teams that you managed. you came up in the minor leagues with doc gooden, darryl strawberry and it gnawed at you that they had drug problems that sapped a lot of their greatness. for these kids that have temptation ahead of them, do you wish you had done more? what's your hope for these young people? >> in you know how to live life right, take care of your body, stay in shape, if you want to be an at least, sometimes when you become -- a athlete, sometimes when you become very famous,
4:56 am
some guys may want you do bad things. you have to know how to say no and make sure they understand no. and that's like doing drugs or stuff like that which would be very bad for you. >> davey johnson, my wild ride in baseball and beyond, all the proceeds go to his wife's charity which does ? >> young girls to go to college, she provides a scholarship fund and mentors. it's 47 young women in college from underprivileged areas. >> it's an honor to have you here. still ahead, reasons priebus, maria bartiromo and -- reince priebus and maria bartiromo, and jon huntsman all here live talking about major issues of the day, coming up. melatonin is the body's own sleep ingredient.

5:03 am
because that would amount to him obstructing himself. basically laying out there. abby: he has nothing to hide here. abby: he has the power they are saying to shut this thing down. the other question is who leaked this? because it has to benefit somebody. does it benefit the mueller team? does it benefit the trump team you? could argue maybe it benefits both in some way that the mueller team could say see, this is a perfect example of the president thinking he is above the law. the trump team saying we have nothing to hide here. we do have certain power and certain authority to act. pete: we had corey lewandowski on earlier. much of this needs to be seen through the context of what was actually done under comey and what hasn't been done. he hasn't fired mueller. the investigation i said it so many times i can't say it anymore. investigation is still going. here is what corey said earlier on the program. >> goes right back to the biggest problem that this administration has had, which is leaks coming from either inside the building or somewhere within the administration i think the premise is exactly right. if the president were to ask
5:04 am
me, and he never has, i would recommend not sitti down with the mueller team. because, what the mueller team can do, they can write a report to the department of justice and ultimately the congress on if there was any collusion between the trump campaign and the russians. this investigation has been taking place now to the tune of over $10 million for a year and a half. it's time to end the investigation. and tell the american people what we already know. >> that is exactly what the trump attorneys are telling him dr. dershowitz who we have on the show all the time say you can't benefit in any way by sitting down with robert mueller and having this interview. it sounds like listening to rudy giuliani the president wants to have the sit down. i have nothing to hide. let me answer these questions. they are saying that's the not a good idea. pete: if you are guilty, you don't sit down. the president has said from the beginning he is not not guilty. that he is isn't. if we had any evidence it would be emblazened. a permanent banner on cnn. abby: have it ready to go? pete: burned on every screen because they would never take it down. if they had a crime and had

5:06 am
different things? pete: under siege from all sides. ed: they made me into the tell the truth. >> angry democrats made me. abby: you make a good point. those would be some of the questions they are going to ask donald trump. >> i'm not saying guilt. if you are nngts why did your attorney say in july of 2017 nothing to do. july 2018 write a letter to the special counselor saying he dictated the statement. pete: don't sit down it's a lose, lose. when you are innocent and didn't do anything wrong and they are trying to trip you up. that doesn't prove anything. doesn't prove collusion. clearly we are we dating us.

5:17 am
and a brand that is so unique. not just to american politics but to the country. that he sort of owns this piece of real estate. and no matter how anyone wants to analyze it, look, the republican party is a big entity. but, more than ever before. the trump brand is a huge entity. and it intersects each other about 85% of all of the things that trump and the party believe in. debating whether or not trump is the party or the party is trump, to take the best of trump. which i have always said from the very beginning, even when i was in the white house, just come on tv and say if the republican party becomes the permanent party of the american worker, we will never lose a national election again. since president trump has been in office. we have added over 334,000 manufacturing jobs. that is president trump's bread and butter. of all the analysis out there this week about this

great economy. i can tell you the one thing that the president has always been focused on is wage growth. because he knows if people start putting more money in their pocket, it is salute teflon politically and for solidifying his future. i would just say that in a nutshell is where the party needs to be. pete: is john boehner saying hey trump has succeeded in merging the two or tipping his hand the never trumper movement is out there. we haven't really embraced this president yet? >> i think it's a little of both. right you? can watch this among republicans as well. which which is you know, there is a reluck assistance at least a little bit. there is like 10%. not much. there is a row luck assistance to just admit the fact that under president trump we have had an incredible amount of prosperity. and i would challenge the president, start labeling it now. don't call it the prosperity area. call it the trump prosperity prr

abby: welcome back this week. multiple tv permanents apologizing for crude comments. roseanne barr's sitcom was
5:33 am
cancelled after racist tweet valerie jarrett. samantha bee using insulting language on her show. and joy reid's hateful blog posts come to light. while some are willing to forgive for these actions. are others but should wrong doers always be forgiven? that the is question we will ask our panel right now. bishop harry jackson senior pastor of hope christian church. rabbi abraham cooper associate dean of the simon wifn that you center. president of the nation's mosque and of course father jonathan morris. a fox news religion contributor. good morning to awful you. >> good morning. abby: i'm looking forward to this conversation because after a week of so much hate. i think we need to find a way to be better, kindler more respectful people. we have heard of apologies from the three folks i just mentioned. one of them was fired, roseanne barr. in order to forgive, how important is it to feel like that apology is totally genuine? they actually feel sorry
5:34 am
about what they did what they said? >> abby, that's very important. in fact, interesting that you -- this is a topic this morning us we are in the middle of ramadan right now every morning in the 4:30 reading the commentary. today it ended with a saying that said let them be forgiven because wouldn't you want god to forgive you. you know that's a name of god in the quran. and it's mentioned 91 times. and which means that he is the ultimate forgiver. if his attribute and says that we should be saying the same thing. seeking forgiveness. what does forgiveness do for us. gives us to return back to the puritan nature that the created our life upon. very important. >> how important is it to take politics out of this? it does seem like where we are today, if you agree with that person, if you agree with that hate-filled joke that you think it's okay. that it is okay. it passes. it flies it passes the test. when you don't agree with it
5:35 am
that you think that person should be fired and their apology is not enough. how does it get out of this place. >> it happens to all of us those feelings of saying hey, they are not on my side, therefore, let's get rid of them plus they have one on our side. it's not a healthy society when every public figure is one tweet away from being dragged out into the public square, shamed and stoned. that's what we're doing right now. and, you know, i think you mentioned, you asked the question about should they feel sorry? we can't control people's feelings, but, the big thing is whether or not they have made a decision to change their behavior. and i think we shouldn't be waiting for somebody to mess up and then stone them. but, rather, give them a chance to change. if they don't change, of course. they shouldn't be in the public square in that way. >> i agree with that. abby: rabbi, cooper, i want to bring you into this as well. we are talking about forgiveness and how we can learn to forgive. is there a difference forgiving spiritually and forgiving just culturally. >> well, good morning. first of all, the
5:36 am
possibility of change, repentance. these are great contributions of judaism. to the world. i think the key term and we are talking about misdeeds between people is the issue of a coincidentability. it's noaccountability.our systeu try actually correct the situation and obviously in the world of twitter and facebook and 24/7 cable. it's a difficult thing to do. so, if you are talking between yourself and the good lord, that's a private matter. when you are in the public square, you don't get that forgiveness unless you have accountability and you are able to reach out to the people that you hurt. obviously, at the end of the day, have you been able to show in the public square a change of attitude and behavior? and, if you don't, you don't deserve forgiveness. abby: bishop jackson we look back on this week. it was an ugly week. a lot of nasty things were said. racist card was pulled. a lot of things you could say were just as bad were
5:37 am
said about folks. what do we learn from this week? what do you take away? how can we all better ourselves? >> i think we have a teachable moment. personal repentance is great. there also needs to be structural change. i believe that we're in a moment of civic awakening. the me too movement. people dealing with race, class issues. in america we want justice. but the far for how we bring change is important. i believe the network holds some responsibilities. they knew roseanne was edgy. they know samantha bee is edging. i believe we begin to use these teachable moments and the networks begin to put on some programming that show us a moral path. i think that would be very helpful. personal and then structural change is needed in our cultural. abby: imam, you listen to some of the things that were said whether it was a tweet or samantha bee who wrote and obviously helped produce that monologue, they knew what they were saying and obviously they felt okay about saying those things,
5:38 am
what does that tell you about where we are as a society? are we losing a sense of spirituality where we say can you call someone whatever you want and that flies? >> absolutely. we are losing something. just because you can do something, in fact, just last night i was with cardinal we're. weir. he was giving a speech last night. just because can you say doo something or say something doesn't mean that you should. in a stated nature, our parents, they begin to give us the moral teachings that we need when we were young. now, we have to look at this and say would you teach your children to have this kind of behavior. we try to teach them to stay on the course that they are coming upon, which is pure, honest, loving, obedient. you know. so what's happening now? intentions -- actions are judged by intentions. what you think is what you feel about what. do you what you do reveals what you really believe. belief gets to the core be a
5:39 am
structure of a human being. something is not progressing the way god you to progress. we have to address it because, again, forgiveness doesn't mean that you are going to pretend that didn't happen. w it, just means cover that and if you seem sincere repentance means turn around. turn around to what? again, go back to the natural path of human goodness. abby: father john,quickly how do we get back. >> people say those are public figures. here's how we get back public decency, go to your twitter feed and facebook and see the type of things that you have said about other people. and then think if i knew them, if they were in front of me, why say them? if not, get rid of them and start over. everybody has a saying right now even if you are not a public figure and changes in our society when we allow ourselves to say things that we wouldn't say necessarily if everybody knew about them. abby: rabbi bishop quickly.
5:40 am
your last words here? >> i think that parents, as well as their kids should learn to shut off the social media at least once a week for a day are a orthodox jews do. get real friends. shut the thing off. charity and clarity begins at home. i would look more to the home rather than to the government to address this problem. abby: bishop, quickly, last word here. >> we need a change. we need to be the change we want to see. we and our children need to do, love, and feel for others compassion is the way. and god's love is the answer. abby: all right. bishop, rabble by, father john, imam, it was really great to have all of you here this morning. we need this today after such a hateful week. have a wonderful sunday. >> you too. >> thank you. abby: president trump pardoning filmmaker dinesh d'souza. new york's tom lawyer wants to get rid of double jeopardy so he and others pardoned could face more

>> i was going to say far for shutters at this latest development i'm actually chuckling about it because it's very -- opening. i have maintained from the beginning that this prosecution in my case was political. that it was motivated by the obama administration's desire to somehow get me. and the other side, the progressive preet b bara my prosecutor said no this is carrying out the normal law in the course of things. here combings the attorney general. this is the highest judicial official in the state of new york, and she is basically saying, listen, the normal course of things didn't work. this guy got away. and now we got to get him some other way. so let's come up with a strategy for prosecuting people twice. ed: right. >> my favorite term is the

5:48 am
bludgeoning process. in other words, the way that they get a voluntary plea is they threaten to put on all of these additional, often redundant charges. they describe the same thing four different ways. each of those crimes carries years and years in prison. so they basically say to you, you will be -- we will destroy your life unless you plead. and so both the innocent and the guilty are forced to plead because of the strong arm tactics that they use. ed: right. >> the very fact that trump is looking at people as diverse as martha stewart and rod blagojevich, a democrat, shows this is not just trump rewarding his ideological friends. is he looking at high profile cases to kind of send a message that the system itself may need some fixing. ed: a lot of people feel like they ar bludgeoned in the judicial process. had you senator cruz able to bringing that to the commander-in-chief. wasn't that favorable treatment. >> yes, it was. it was also the case that i had a very powerful

january that laid out why they do not believe president trump has, should have to sit down in front of robert mueller, laying out that ultimately he had the perogative to fire comey, constitutionally and legally able to do what he did ultimately firing flynn and comey not a crime, intent also can't be litigated, what you think about what you did matters a lot less than what you did and so it's a long letter we read all of it we're going to bring a tiny bit to you this morning again this is from january, just leaked now. the trump legal team said this. could neither constitutionally what the president did, could neither constitutionally nor legally construe obstruction, because that would amount to him obstructing himself. ed: basically he has such vast executive power that he can not obstruct justice because you could hire or fire anyone in the executive branch. the seeds of this argument really were sewn by alan dershowitz and others who have been on fox and other places saying that the president does have vast executive power. the question is really how far
6:04 am
did that power go and does it go so far that he doesn't have to deal with say a subpoena from robert mueller to testify. abby: well that's what a lot of democrats are saying this is a perfect example of why the president thinks he is above the law, right? ed: that's the charge. abby: and they're going to continue to complain about that but then the next question is this ultimate sit-down with robert mueller, does it happen does it not happen because you can see in that letter there's no reason for the sit-down to actually happen and the president continues to be advis ed from rudy giuliani to ershowitz to others that there's no benefit that would come out of you sitting down with robert mueller. ed: it could be a perjury trap. abby: because even if there is nothing ultimately to hide and no collusion in the end between presiden trump and the russians you could get down a rabbit hole and you ask one question about a meeting with don jr. that then leads to something else and that's prolonging the investigation. pete: as they point out there has to be a legal reason something material to the case where you have to ask only the president, only the president
6:05 am
can answer that and what you've explored flew documents and other conversations, so the trump team is arguing you've interviewed everybody,, we've given you everything, you haven't found a crime or collusion you don't actually have to speak to the president. ed: we're going to have somebody from ken starr's impeachment team during the clinton days breaking down all of the legal and political implications. abby: but there's aeal frustration within the white house there's been so much focus and so much money spent as we were talking about yesterday $17 million on this mueller probe that there's not been the focus on what the american people care most about and that is what's being done in this country. we can list the things that happened. pete: 500 days in right? abby: tomorrow marks 500 days of the presidency, 3.8% unemployment, historic tax cuts, the ice against i.c.e., the summit of course on june 12 with kim jong-un in singapore, leaving the iran deal and he did , moving the u.s. embassy to jerusalem and of course the appointment of the supreme court
6:06 am
justice neil gorsuch, still a lot that needs to be done, but what the white house is saying, kellyanne says our focus is on making the american lives better and making this country stronger and people aren't talking about that because we spent so much time on this investigation. ed: bill clinton faced all kinds of legal and political drama and it's the economy stupid. you see the jobs number on friday, that even the new york times said we can't come up with new words to explain how good it is. nancy pelosi on the other side is saying this is just crumbs, this jobs number is not trickl ing down to people. abby: a pile of doggy doo. ed: charles payne was on earlier and said just the opposite. charles: we want from 17 million to 20 million, since january last year, 333, 350,000 have come back. there are americans who are working that a couple months ago , they never thought they'd ever have a good paying job and now do you know what you can go get yourself a $50,000 job
6:07 am
driving a truck, working in manufacturing you can do something to help your family and feed your family it's amazing. abby: i think there were what 25,000 construction jobs just last month alone, what company is saying is such an important point is because when it comes to job it's providing for yourself and family but also giving someone a purpose reminding them they can go out and there and be good at something and give back to this country so companies are hiring people that thought they couldn't get a job. pete: great point. there's such dignity in work in that job and that instills in people there's 350,000 additional manufacturing jobs so far during this administration, 2.5 million total. that list didn't even include the va, i had lunch with two friends of mine fighting for va reform so what trump supporters had to do to get the choice act passed is amazing the deep state they had to fight to do that, it's still not over so overwhelming resistance continues if they plow through. ed: how many times did hillary clinton say donald trump is giving you false hope.
6:08 am
abby: speaking of fight though pete you had one last hour. pete: well a little bit because it turns out there's this candidate running in virginia, the tenth district he's a democrat trying to get noticed because it's a big primary. abby: he did. pete: just watch the ad. >> dan helmer. i approved this message. i'm different. i'm not a politician, i'm a rogue scholar who served in combat. i'm for med medicare for all option and against drug companies that rip off seniors. i'll fight the gun lobby to protect children, not guns. after 9/11 the greatest threat to our democracy lives in a cave now he lives in the white house. no one, even the president is above the law. i'm different. ed: i was watching your interview when you were doing this and your first question was basically something to the effect of are you really compar ing this president to osama bin laden and said well and started going down this road and i'm thinking the only answer is "no." pete: yes.
6:09 am
ed: the president is not osama bin laden. there's no direct comparison. there's no way. abby: the problem is he was behind putting those ads. he knows exactly what it said the greatest threat to our democracy and then now president trump and you pushed him back and said you actually have to stand by that ad, because you put it out there so defend yourself. pete: he was a smart guy it was scripted they wrote it. he went on and the first answer he went on to say well it's because i swore an oath against foreign, enemies and domestic. ed: well the president is an enemy? pete: this is part of the interview. listen. >> i served combat towards in iraq and afghanistan and i did it for a simple reason and swore an oath to upheld and defend the constitution of the use guest enemies foreign and domestic. and right now -- pete: okay so i swore the same oath. are you saying that president trump is a domestic enemy? >> i'm saying for an oath that we took to defend the constitution, i take seriously. this president doesn't.
6:10 am
if change is coming that no one, not even our president, is above the law. pete: he wouldn't, i mean because he's running for office he's going to be scrutinized that's what happens he's clearly a smart guy, knows better trying to get noticed but to make that comparison and to stand here on the island of manhattan where 3,000 people died you can resist his policies and be a liberal democrat that's fine but equate him to the worst islamic terrorist in the world, can't go any lower? every time you think you can you do. abby: and insulting to all those families. pete: and even nancy pelosi had to disa vow the last part of the ad, but they don't want to touch it. abby: so you guys have been e-mailing us your thoughts about that interview and this is from richard says just another example of how far out of touch are some of the democrats no vision except tear down president trump. pete: an e-mail from jay says his central charge is that president trump violated the constitution but he did not back it up with a shred of evidence. ed: i got an e-mail from peter whose a viewer here in new

jersey e-mails me all the time and he says i'm a 9/11 survivor escaping from the fourth tower eight minutes before it fell and i am disgusted by your recent guest who compared president trump to osama bin laden for the sake of politics. pete: it's so true. don't say you're not a politician, prove some sort of a point and get noticed. abby: anyway he came on here. pete: he did and served our country and we thank him for that. abby: a lot going on i want to bring you other headlines we're following. overnight china warning it will back out of any new trade agreement if the u.s. raises tariffs. president trump has threatened to increase tariffs on up to $150 billion of chinese imports. china stance comes as president trump's team spent the weekend in china for high-level trade talks. commerce secretary wilbur ross was the one leading those negotiations. an off-duty fbi agent accidental ly shoots someone while dancing at a nightclub. take a look at this you can see the handgun flying out of the

why the president cannot 20 page letter sent to special counsel robert mueller and his team our next guest calls this a brilliant move that may have a significant impact o the probe. he is sal weisenberg served as deputy independent counsel and joins us live from north carolina. good morning, sir. >> hi, ed how are you? ed: great. i know virtually nothing about the law didn't go to law school i don't want to pretend to be aileron tv and spin this anyway and get the facts from someone who knows more than i do. before we dive deeper, what is your biggest takeaway from this? what does this mean this letter? >> well, it's the leaking of the letter which i absolutely believe had to have come from the camp of the president that i think is such a brilliant maneuver, because it shows a number of things. first, it shows that the mueller teams view of obstruction of
6:18 am
justice is frighteningly broad because he starts with 18 questions that the areas that mueller wants to question the president about and some of them are quite shocking like what was your reaction when mueller was pointed? what was your tell us about your conversations with jeff sessions about recusal. so that's very striking to me because we hadn't known for sure whether these questions came really from the interpretations by the trump camp or from mueller. if they're coming from mueller, that's number one. number two, it shows the many efforts this letter, by the president's team, to get information from the mueller folks not just, ed, all presidents say well we've given thousands of documents. we've given millions of document s. well the relevant thing is what are you withholding okay? ed: what's the key thing we don't see. >> yeah, this goes into great detail about what's been provided and what kind of waiver s of executive privilege have already been made, so i
6:19 am
think that that's good. ed: okay. >> it also discusses the evidence and i think the evidence is pretty strong that it would be ridiculous to charge the president with obstruction even if you could charge a sitting president, so i think all that is good. i don't think anybody is going to sorry go ahead. ed: pardon me you say overly broad view by mueller about what is obstruction of justice. critics are saying this is an overly broad view by the president's camp of his executive power and basically he's above the law. you say? >> well there's one passage in there that i think they're right on that i don't agree with. they seem to suggest that the president, because he is president, can by definition never obstruct justice and i don't believe that's true and i don't leave there's any support in the law for it; however, they also say that the president cannot be guilty of obstruction for firing james comey because it's within his power. that's a very different thing
6:20 am
and i think and i've always said that's a very powerful argument. now is this letter going to convince the people who think differently? no but an interesting thing about here about this letter is they quote a case called u.s. versus espy. it's the controlling law in the d.c. circuit. ed: i've heard the president's legal team mention that in private. you've got 15 seconds. >> right, well they're going to use that. what they're doing is sending a message that you're going to have a tough time mueller on the executive privilege question if we go into court. ed: because secretary under clinton ended up getting off so that might be an important precedent here. we appreciate you coming in with real facts interesting analysis thank you, sir. >> thank you. ed: coming up, abbey's dad, the ambassador jon huntsman all the way from moscow and now to the couch. and a 30 year old evicted millennial we've been talking about this finally moved out of his parents house, now we're

6:27 am
can't coddle our children and make them feel that everybody is the best and everybody should be on the team because they need to know about hard practice, hard work and what it takes to get on a team. abby: and you learn so much richard through those failures. the best memories, the ones i remember most growing up are when i failed. i remember i ran for class president in 7th grade so embarrassing to admit but i got zero votes except for one and it was my own vote. you remember that you put yourseuthere and learn from it. >> and look at you now. abby: we can all learn but it's failing sometimes that make us better make us stronger, make us i think more able to be successful as we get older. >> albert einstein once said you never fail until you stop trying and that's kind of how my parents raise me and the idea of that statement is that sometimes you'll fail but you keep trying to succeed. i think about one example in this country where we heard about the case with ethan couch
6:28 am
where he was pretty much coddled by his parents, no consequences and because his parents didn't force consequences on him he ended up killing several teenagers took their lives from them and that's how serious this can get if we don't teach our kids consequences or let them know that it's okay to fail but just keep trying. abby: yeah, it's important to be careful that we say that's not going to lead to someone going out shooting people but the importance of parenting just overall with kids and how we can make them as successful as they can be. you've got two kids of your own what advice do you give them? >> i think it's the same advice my parents gave me, when i similarly would try out for a school play and not make it my parents would say you've got to, you know, stand up and try again and you're right. those failures are things you learn from. they also are things that make you say you know maybe this isn't for me, maybe i want to move in a better direction or a different direction and that turns out to be better for you, but i think there are enormous political consequences for this as well, and one of my favorite cartoon movies is the incredible

>> definitely an unforgettable experience. abby: you have no idea how cold that water is. that might just look like a lake that you dunk your head under. dad, what was the degrees of that water? >> do you see my tatoo there? abby: your tatoo? pete: russian water is extra cold. >> that's an attention getter. first of all it's a river it's below zero so it's not frozen and once you hit the water at that temperature, i mean, you lose control of your muscle, your respiratory system basically shuts down and i wanted to do the three dunks, because president putin got in and did almost one. you're supposed to do three to make it complete so i thought -- ed: so competition. >> i thought this is sending an important message when the united states can get in and do it the right way. ed: did you beat him? well i would say --
6:46 am
the commentary in the country is that well the u.s. did it right. abby: and it was snowing outside so bitter cold but a lot going on and news breaking two nights ago that was leaked out about a possible summit between vladimir putin and president trump. what is the reality of that ultimately happening? >> first can i say it's a pleasure to be with you. i love my daughter. ed: what about us? >> i'm so proud of my daughter but i have to say i miss your mom. abby: i know mom couldn't be here. >> back in moscow first of all as it relates to any potential meeting it would be a ways off and the president at the right time will say what needs to be said. the white house will obviously make an announcement, but i think the president has stated before that he would like to get together with president putin at some point and solve some of the issues between us and that's a good thing. ed: he's saying going back to the campaign if you can have a good relationship with russia you can help solve problems with syria, iran. >> that's exactly right so to make all of that happen you've got to have both sides willing to meet and i think we've got
6:47 am
both sides that would look favorably on that. you have to have a place. you have to have a time and you have to have an agenda and the president is slide enough where he would not sit down with president putin unless he had issues that served this nation that were in line with our national interest, but it's inconceivable, pete i have to say it's un inconceivable that you can conclude that you can settle down the united states and russia dealing with this hornets nest of an issue called syria and it's inconceivable that you can deal rationally with strategic stability and nuclear weapons when both of our countries possess 90% of the world's nuclear weapons. isolation doesn't fix things it's coming together but you have to have deliverables and results. ed: the president gave you a pretty easy assignment. abby: [laughter] yeah. >> i've raised seven kids including some daughters. ed: if you can raise daughters -- pete: and you have to be strong- willed at times. on occasion. >> i was remindsed of that this

means that with that comes a little bit of blowback, but it also means that the president has i think some unique leverage in the relationship, because the russians see him with an economy that is performing like no other time, since maybe the 1960s with our gas and oil, circumstances here in the united states. i mean who would have guessed a few years ago that we would become the largest producers of oil in the world. we overtook the russians. ed: well you have unique perspective by the way as former ambassador to china and singapore to this upcoming summit in singapore over north korea so we want to get to that after the break the ambassador will stick around talk north korea and answer some of your questions we've been getting them flooding in about abbey's childhood. we've been waiting for this all morning you have too, stick around. >> ♪ ♪

this north korean official quoting all these former bush and clinton officials saying we never would have done that and i was thinking they never made any progress with north korea. why are we listen to the same people who did not moving bat l forward and had the wrong approach. >> that is just pure nonsense, this president is very results oriented and he looks for results so secretary pompeo who by the way is a very able secretary of state, he's a very very shrewd smart guy so he shows up, delivers a message, you expect in these kinds of building of trust examples that they would want to mirror that by sending somebody, because pompeo got to meet of course kim jong-un. abby: what do you make of where we are? people don't realize but you were also ambassador to china. that part of the world is your expertise. you understand it, you understand the way that china thinks. what do you make of the progress we've made in north korea? did you ever think we would be this far? >> nobody did, so every foreign policy pundit and analyst who would have been asked a few

years ago never would have predicted that we would be where we are today. these are tectonic seismic geo political shifts that we are witnessing. make no mistake about that, so as this plays out and listen there will be a couple of steps forward, one or two back that's just the way these things work, that's to be expected the north koreans have not negotiated with the west before. they've been sealed for a very long time and this is going to take a little bit of doing but the president i think has taken the right approach, secretary pompeo has played a good hand, and what i think is important is when you settle down the events in northeast asia, because when they shoot ballistic missiles and they haven't in many months now, it affects the economies of japan, northern china, taiwan, south korea an more than half of u.s. trade just stop to think about it goes through these very sensitive waterways, the way to the united states or from the united states.
