[applause] ♪ >> shepard: we stand to support, we stand to salute and we stand in the absence of the philadelphia eagles. the t is, the eagles stood
12:07 pm
as well. the eagles stood at every time. none knelt. a small number was showing today so he cancelled their event and said the philadelphia eagles disagree with him and standing for the national anthem. st for every game last e team season. after the president scrapped the event, torre smith tweeted as follows. so many lies, shake my head. one, not m people were going to go. two, no one refused to go simply because trump insists folks stand for the anthem. three, the president continues to spread the false narrative that players are anti-military. some athletes have knelt during the anthem to protest police brutality. president trump has criticized player who kneel calling them
12:08 pm
sobsnd urging nfl owners to fire them. john roberts is live now. john? >> shep, good afternoon to you. we didn't get to the south lawn because the briefing was so long. so that's why we're still in the briefing room. it's no dispute tha the president is at war with the nfl over the issue. tonight the white house slammin the philadelphia eagles and offering a rare glimpse into the negotiations that led up to today. the white house saying and sarah huckabee sanders repeating here from the podium that last thursday, the eaglesed the names of 81 players and staff that would come today. the secret service cleared them in. the eagles contacted the white house to say friday we couldn't get that many people to come. it'soinge a handful so we would like to look for a different day. what about the week after next, when the president is in singapore. the white house went become and forth with them over the ed to savetoday.
12:09 pm
it turned out that only two or three players, the owner, jeffery lurie and the mascot he president cancelled the whole thing. listen to sarah huckabee sanders as she took a flame thrower to the eagle as few minutes ago. >> if this wasn't a political stunt but the eagles franchise, then they wouldn't have planned to attend the event and backed if it was president a political stunt and they wouldn't have attempted to reschedule the visit when they knew the president was going to be overseas and if this wasn't a po ted, they wouldn't have waited until monday well after 1,000 of their fans had traveled and taken time out of their schedules to offer a tiny handful of representatives to attend the event. >> as you mentioned, shep, the president believes this was all about the fact that there were a lot of players that don't agree with him that players should stand for the national anthem. you heard a tweet from torri
12:10 pm
smith. he said if you're going to tweet, tweet facts. nobody took a knee last year. some players stood with their fists in the air in protest of plys violent. the nfl said they were disappointed in the cancellation saying this decision by the white house has led to the cancellation of several player-led community service events for young people in the washington d.c. area. not clear what was cancelled since two or three players were planning on being in attendance. no question that relations between the white house and at least the nfl franchise, the philadelphia eagles are at a oric low as of this moment. shep? >> shepard: thanks, john. back to you in a moment. first, for context and perspective. trace gallagher is live now. trace? >> a couple things that we should remember, shep, a couple players that raised their hands during the games. not a single player note down
12:11 pm
but a couple did raise hands as a protest for racial injustice. one of them is malcolm jenkins, a defensive back and a very strong safety all-pro. he's been very proactive in saying the president has made this all about the fact that he believes the players are disrespecting the military and america. he says the overall push here had nothing to do with that. this is all about rial injustice. malcolm jenkins has been a very strong force in philadelphia. he's raised tens of millions for inner city schools. we know his teammate chris long was strongly against going to the white house. when the patriots won the super bowl in president trump's first year in office, he did not go to the white house. hoongor us here at fox news, a great family. chris long lives in charlottesville, virginia. after the violence there and the
12:12 pm
president's reaction to that, chris long became a very strong advocate for making sure that everybody knew that the protests that began a couplears awitholi nothing to do with dissing the military or being anti-american. colin kaepernick himself at the time said that he would go from sitting on the bench during the national anthem to kneeling because he met with military members and they said, the optics looks bad, so he came out and said, i'm not trying to disrespect the military or america. we're talking simply racial injustice. the flip side of this, shep, is that it plays well for president and his base. you look at these polls from "the washington post" and cbs. 53 to 55% of americans say it is always inappropriate to kneel during the national anthem. the nfl owners appear to be listening ident. so there is a back and forth. the president thinks for him this is a winning issue and the
12:13 pm
clearly, shep.aying >> shepard: trace gallagher live. thank you. coming up, more on the white house briefing and a second day of dodging regarding statements which the lawyers the president say he dictated. statements which the white house spokesperson say, well, it's a controversy in day two and john roberts has thels next.stay wit. george woke up in pain. but he has plans today. hey dad. so he took aleve. if he'd taken tylenol, he'd be stopping for more pills right now. only aleve has the strength to stop tough pain for up to 12 hours with just one pill. aleve. all day strong. i'm your phone,istle text alert. stuck here between your seole, playing a little hide-n-seek. cold... warmer...

12:16 pm
my bad. >> shepard: continuing coverage now of news items at the white house briefing today. once more, sarah sanders refused to correct the record on her statement that contradicted the. her report that president trump did not dictate a statement on the trump tower meeting with a russian lawyer and others. the president's legal team revealed in a secret memo which fox news has confirmed that president trump did in fact dictate that statem that is the legal version. the legal version sent to the special counsel i russian meddling. the public version from the podium continues to be that the russians in trump tower was about adoptions, this is important because russians were meddling in the 2016 election. at this meeting were said to be
12:17 pm
ufr -- offering dirt on the president's opponent. back to john roberts at the white house. john? >> we have the contradiction in what was said on the way the president was back from the g-20, jay sekulow, the outside counsel said on july 12, the president had no hand in writing that, that was donald trump jr. sarah huckabee sanders said the president didn't dictate it, but he did weigh-in as any father would do when his son is involved. then we had the january 29th, 20-page letter that fox news obtained and said that the president dictated that. as written by jay sekulow. rudy guliani said he believes that sekulow had it wrong the first time out. so we've had a correction there. sarah huckabee sders continues to refuse to even engage or
12:18 pm
entertain questions about her statement and whether or not she believes that she was speaking the truth from the podium. listen to the bac and forth earlier. >> was it accurate or not? that's all we want -- >> i workday in and day out and majority of you here in the room. you know i'm an honest person that works extremely hard to provide you accurate information at all times. i'll continue to do that. i'm not going to engage on matters that deal with outside counsel. >> sarah sanders went so far to say that she believes her credibility is tighter than that of the media's and spanked everybody in the room for reporting on things that she wouldn't want them to not have reported on. no clarification from the white house on whether or not that statement as she read it b th accurate or what informed her statements. so i think we'll keep pushing on that front, shep. >> shepard: president trump, john is slamming his attorney general, jeff sessions again. >> and what is really curious about this, rudy guliani told me last week that he thinks that it's counter productive for the
12:19 pm
president to keep slamming jeff sessions because guliani thought he was m head in questioning the whole promise of the mueller investigation and the boundaries with which the mueller investigation has expanded over these las 12 to 13 months. the president tweeting this morning, the russian witch hunt hoax continues. it's all because jeffsions didn't tell me he was going to recuse someone else. i would have picked somebody else. so many lives ruined and sessions knew better than most that there was no collusion. so the president clearly ignoring rudy guliani's advice on that. so i put the question to sarah sanders earlier today. what is it that the president is really up to here? >> what is the president's goal here? to remind the attorneythslly ma he won't let himget it? is he trying to get him to quit? is he trying to emascul him? >> the president has made his position on this extremely
12:20 pm
clear. i don't have anything to add beyond that. >> you didn't get all of the context there. the reason why you heard some question, because i prefaced my question saying the president took a stick to his favorite piñata. >> thanks, john roberts. paul manafort, the president's campaign chair is out of jail on $10 million bail and house st while he waits for two trials to begin. now the special counsel in the russia investigation wants him locked up. his team is asking a judge to revoke his bail over accusations that he tried to tamper with witnesses. the details and the manafort response coming up. mitzi:soriatic arthritis tries to get in my way? watch me. ( ♪ ) mike: i've tried lots of things for my joint pain. now? watch me. ( ♪ )
12:21 pm
joni: think i'd give up showing these guys how it's done? please. real people with active psoriatic arthritis are changing the way they fight it. they're moving forward with cosentyx. it's a different kind of targeted biologic. it's proven to help people find less jot pain and clearer skin. don't use if you are allergic to cosentyx. before starting cosentyx you should be checked for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infections and lowered abilfight them. tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms of an infection. or if you have received a vaccine, or plan to. if you have inflammatory bowel disease tell your doctor if symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reactions may occur. mitzi: with less joint pain, watch me. for less joint pain and clearer skin, ask your rheumatologist about cosentyx.
12:22 pm
12:23 pm
12:24 pm
>> shepard: 23 minutes past the hour now. paul manafort could be behind bars before he goes to trial. the special counsel, robert mueller's team, is accusing him of trying to tamper with witnesses in his own criminal case. one witness says he felt manafort was trying to get him to commit perjury. that's according to court documents. prosecutors write that paul manafort and one of his associates repeatedly contacted two witnesses, sometimes using encrypted messaging to try to influence their testimony. if true, that's a violation of his conditions for house arres and a crime in and of itself. so the feds are asking a judge to transfer manafort to jail. he's pleaded not guilty of conspiracy against the united states. he's not been charged with witness tampering. he's accused of funneling payments through foreign companies and bank accounts as part of political work for the pro russia president of ukraine.
12:25 pm
catherine herridge is live on capitol hill what is the latest from his defense, catherine? >> what we're hearing from the manafort team, they're going to mount a defense against these allegations. i want to get to some issues first. they have until june 8 now to file their response to the 18-page motion that was filed late last night in the district court here in washington by special counsel robert mueller's team and june 15 they will have a hearing on the matter. in the meantime, manafort's team has put out a statement that reads in part, "manafort is innocent and nothing about these allegations change our defense. we will do our talking in court." in other words, they're not going to engage with the media. they'll make their arguments before the judge. some senior senate democrats here on capitol hill see it differently. >> paul manafort ought to be
12:26 pm
jailed. most likely i think should face serious criminal penalties for witness tampering, potential perjury. while this trial is pending, he should be confined so that justice is fair for him and for others that may be indicted in the future. >> so a lot of lawmakers are coming back to capitol hill today. we have limited reaction and we haven't heard from others supporting manafort's position. >> shepard: he could face jail time, manafort. >> yeah. you been following this closely. there's this incredibly tense and sort of tumultuous back and forth between robert mueller's team and manafort's lawyers about the conditions of his bail and the terms of that bail,
12:27 pm
which right now is like a home detention, if you will. his team is making argument that this allegedpering with tnesses is a violation of those terms and that he should now be subject to detention. the reason that's a very big deal for themanafort's team,e have two cases in tandem. the one here in washington d.c. with the new allegations of witness tampering and then we have the second prosecution that is moving along an independent track in virginia. they have a bigring coming end of the month on the allegations that there were improper disclosures to the media from the lead prosecutors there and andrew wiseman. so having manafort in detention would have had the impact really of limiting his ability to mount his defense with his lawyers. that's one of his main arguments, shep. >> shepard: thanks, catherine. more on that as we getit. where are we, big picture?
12:28 pm
let's go to john bussey, associate editor for the "wall street journal," whom this network shares common ownership. there's a lot of lies. there's some that haveleaded guilty, to items regarding russians, others that are charged with items regarding ru and there's those that lied with items regarding russ and now all of these investigations and the push backs and the national anthem and the philadelphia eagles. this is not normal in america. what is this? >> it's an argumentative president that today got stood up on a date at the white house so he cancelled the dat so he did so in a way that diminished the eagles, essentially accused them of not being tick, suggested that they weren't standing for the anthem regardless of where you are on that issue.
12:29 pm
it's wrong. they did stand for the anthem in their game. but the way of twisting the truth and leaving behind ill feeling is the strategy of the president across the board here. we see him attacking sessions again. we see him obfuscating on this letter. sarah sanders said one thing and the lawyers said another thing. >> shepard: had the lawyers said something that wasn't true to the manafort investigation, that would be a crime, wouldn't it? >> yes. >> shepard: if the lawyers said instead, president trump dictated the letter which said the thing that wasn't true, which was the meeting was a russian adoptions when it was actually about with a russian interpreter in the room getting dirt on hillary clinton. >> right. he has to be truthful -- >> shepard: but not with the public. >> right. >> shepard: she said one thing. but the lawyers that speak legally to the court said another. >> it's an important
12:30 pm
distinction. the american public realizes that she works for us. so does the president. >> shepard: so does he. >> yes. we're paying their sally. so how does this shake out? why? pressure from the mue igation continues to mount. this is like a siege engine rolling up to the castle. you imagine him sort of attacking sessions because of that frustration. you imagine him speaking this way about the eagles to try to make this a patriotic issue when it's not. you can argue just as effectively that the eagles are being reportsful of the constitution, which the president suggested they weren'ts being, but speaking their mind and by engaging in issues that are difficult in the united states to talk about. racism, police brutality, you name it. that's what this is really about. it's not about not respecting the military and not respecting the flag. >> shepard: if this is an effect to get the people not to trust the institutions which are the
12:31 pm
foundation of the public, in other words, the justice system, the media, if the effort is to get the media to distrust them so once the investigation comes out they won't believe the investigators or the message deliverers, is that dangerous to our young republic? >> that's quite clearly the strategy. you denigrate the fbi, you denigrate the intelligence services. yes, it is dangerous for our republic. we'll see how well those institutions withstand the attack. presumably they will withstand the attack. a certain point you need a balance of powers in government and we're n seeing that balance right now. congress isn't stepping forward about calling the president to account. the judicial system might be. it might find him innocent of any collusion or wrong doing. we don't know the results. mueller has been secretive about this. in the interim, the president is reacting this way out of frustration and out of an efforts to delegitimize in case
12:32 pm
there is criticism of his -- shep, look, yes, he speaks to his base and riles up his base. there's a lot of voters in the united states. he has to be careful of antagonizing the voters. >> shepard: generally speaking, we say base but we're talking about 30, 35% of the population. are they being misled about what the justice department and what the media are doing? >> we've talked with the president about the president not always being on speaking terms with the truth. you decide whether or not that's being misled. he at least is putting a big, big spin on ball for them. the broader public has to evaluate that. the broader public may not be part of his base and he may be alienating them. the eagles are in philadelphia, pennsylvania he won but not by a

12:39 pm
me. i guess it's not. >> it's fascinating, shepard. the pentagon has ramped up it's investment in artificial intelligence. now we're learning about a secret program that could help the u.s. defend against mobile missile launchers and hidden launch sites like the ones in north korea. the pilot program focuses on north korea,o the reuter's report. in fact, using technology that can see through clouds and foliage. the intelligence would use computers to scour through data, geo spatial data. they would use diplomacy to stop the launch other than retaliatory launches, which is what the u.s. has reliedon. the pentagon would not comment about the program but issued the
